• Capitalism works

    Nancy Nehring’s letter “Raising wages raises prosperity” is some really bad economics. It is full of obsolete data, unconstitutional thought, and is an outright plea for socialism, or worse. It’s based on Obama’s agenda of class warfare and fair share economics.  

  • How to fund fire service in Citrus County

    There were three ways to fund the fire service when the consultants gave their reports to the Citrus County Board of Commissioners. If we can go back and look at all the options we will find a solution and be able to go forward. Just maybe we should have taken option 2 instead of option 3 due to the poverty rate in this county, as stated by Scott Adams.

  • Disingenuous research

    Common Core opponents frequently refer to Dr. James Milgram’s critique of the math standards to support their assertion that the standards are not rigorous enough — don’t prepare students for algebra in the eighth grade, etc. — even while complaining that the kindergarten math standards are too hard and “developmentally inappropriate.”

  • Thank you for insightful letter

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for including the article submitted by Citizens for Informed Teens, dated Sunday, Sept. 28, in the Opinion section. It is so refreshing to see an attempt being made for our adolescents in regards to safe-sex practice and support for the LGBT youth. The fact is too many are dying from suicide or sick from the misinformation and support. I would like to see many more articles in a larger format and forum that support both.

  • Let cool air flow

    My take on air conditioning the animal shelter is I’m 100 percent for it. These people against it should put on a fur and turn off the air conditioner. Bet it wouldn’t take long to change their mind. Please, please, let the cool air flow.

  • Purchase of Meadowcrest makes sense

    We have come a long way to the reality of finding a new home for our government business center at Meadowcrest. Some say that we should not have purchased this building and some say it is a good deal. I had my doubts, too, in the beginning. I was against the purchase for many reasons. Some had to do with the age of the building and the money we invested into it to make it worthy to occupy. 

  • Concerned by delay in providing hospital foundation details

    I read in the Chronicle that the new non-taxable foundation is to be formed to administer the funds from the lease of our hospital. The paper told us how the make up of the board is to be implemented which will consist of 12 members. The paper does not tell us who these members are, when they will be selected and when they will hold their first organizational meeting.
