• Endorsement: Kennedy best choice

    I confidently recommend to you Thomas Kennedy for re-election to the Citrus County School Board District 1 seat. I have known Mr. Kennedy and his wife for almost 15 years and in that time I have found him to be hardworking, knowledgeable and a passionate advocate for Citrus County public school students, their families and staff.

  • Endorsement: Balfour: A voice for change
  • Endorsement: Best candidate

    School Board Member and current board of education chairman Thomas Kennedy is a kind and compassionate man. He is a man of his word and a man who goes above and beyond the call of his duties. He is a man who truly cares about what happens to the children of this generation. He takes on the problems of any youth he hears about and does not stop until the issue has been resolved. If he is unable to find the answers, he researches and finds the proper person and gets them involved so that the issue can be resolved.

    I’ve known Thomas since he was my student many years ago as a seventh grader. As a result, his family and mine developed a lifelong friendship based on mutual respect: He respected me as his teacher, and I him for the dedicated hard work and effort he exhibited as he flourished in my classroom. 

  • These conditions are treatable today

    I read your excellent article of “Forgotten souls,” which appeared in our July 7, 2014 edition. The entire story carved a knife through my soul where I, too, experienced this drama in my infancy of the ’30s. It is a tale of my mother who was innocently incarcerated within this dreaded horror in Massachusetts for nine obscene years.

  • Ugly fire hydrants

    To the person who made the complaint on July 8 about the ugly eyesores across from his house and the rest of the Sugarmill community, please read this.

    I was a fireman for 20 years and I have never heard of such a statement like this.

    My wife and I live in Leisure Acres. It’s not as well off as Sugarmill Woods, but it’s our home. We don’t have community water like you people. We have well water.

  • Make an intelligent choice

    We just returned from a weeklong vacation in Sarasota, beautiful area for sure. There was an editorial in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune that stated we have but two choices for governor in this upcoming election. One was described as the millionaire (Charlie Crist) and the other as the multimillionaire (Rick Scott) and, according to the editorial, there was not much difference between the two candidates.

  • Fencing our borders a flawed concept

    Re: “The moon and Mexico,” Barbara McAdams, Letters to the Editor, Page C3, Sunday, July 14.

    Barbara McAdams said, “If we can put a man on the moon, I am sure we can build a wall on the border.” Her argument compares apples and oranges and makes no sense. We put men on the moon, but we never built a settlement to secure it.

    The border fence is a 14th-century solution to a 21st-century problem.
