• Not a scientist, not a senator

    “I’m not a scientist.” Those words came from Sen. Mitch McConnell from Kentucky when he was asked recently by a reporter if he believed in “global warming.” Since making that irresponsible statement, many GOP members in both the House and Senate have reiterated the same words: “I’m not a scientist.” The question should be asked, “Is he a senator?” No is the answer — he is an enigma. 

  • Thanks for sharing your expertise

  • Parade turnout disappointing

    Just a short note of thanks and a bit of sadness about today’s boat parade.

    We and a couple of neighbors bundled up, with lots of layers of clothes and an appropriate amount of alcohol aboard one of our pontoon boats to observe the annual Crystal River Christmas boat parade.

  • Off to a bad start

    I’m not an attorney, but I’m also not stupid. I don’t understand the Board of County Commissioners’ reluctance in enforcing its ordinance prohibiting the removal of solid waste from the county.

If a power is not specifically granted to the county, they cannot assume it.

  • Parade of Trees thanks you
  • Fee increase not back-breaking
  • Thanks for donations

    Our sincere thanks to manager Ed Shaw and the Homosassa Walmart for the generous donation of poinsettias to enhance Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and our Celebration of Lights for the 2014 holiday season. The generosity of local businesses like yours is what makes our state park shine every year for thousands of visitors to enjoy!

  • Personal experience with Muslims

    What a pleasure to read the column in last Sunday’s edition (Cortney Stewart, Nov. 23, Page C1) about life with the Muslims, as well as the previous one. As someone who spent five to six years living on the local economy in the area (over a year in Oman and close to that in Jordan and Tunisia when employed as a seismic exploration surveyor in the oil industry) as well as working/traveling in numerous other countries in the region.
