• We're sinking by the bow

    Nancy Nehring’s provocative response to my letter certainly requires some answers from me. 

  • We love you just the way you are

    The discussion topic was love and got this AA thinking. Last night’s topic at the meeting was love. People had many different descriptions and definitions. The way I see it, in our AA program, love is the same as grace. Some find grace in the eyes of God, some in their spouse, and others, like myself, find grace in the members of Alcoholics Anonymous.

  • I'm voting against Amendment 2

    It was quite a debate recently between state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith and super attorney John Morgan. Morgan referred to Smith as “Jimmie Ray” until someone corrected him. Rather than just letting it go with a simple apology, Morgan said he thought everyone in this area had names like Jimmie Ray, John Boy and Billy Bob. Wonder if Morgan thinks we are all illiterate hillbillies in Citrus County?

  • Henry Ford the socialist?

    I wonder what today’s GOP would think of Henry Ford, premier U.S. capitalist. They would probably dub him a socialist, Marxist or worse.

    “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success,” said Ford. “If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.” 

  • ENDORSEMENT: Vote Kitchen for District 2

    Commitment should be at the cornerstone of anyone seeking public service. Mr. Ron Kitchen has no desire to be given your vote. Instead Mr. Kitchen has made a commitment to earn your vote. 

  • ENDORSEMENT: Koller puts people, country before party
  • Keep an eye on checkbook

    I was dumbfounded when I read the Sept. 15 Chronicle article naming The Zimmerman Agency as the company selected to brand Crystal River for the Tourist Development Council. My wife and I just relocated to Citrus County from Okaloosa County in the Florida panhandle, specifically Destin.

  • Give thanks to brave doctors, nurses

    The Ebola virus has already taken over 3,000 lives in three African countries. It has a high rate of mortality for those stricken by it; it is contagious and spread by contact with the body fluids of someone infected. With the travel by plane around the world it could easily become pandemic.

  • Homosassa Special Water District Seat 2

    My wife and I live in Homosassa and have known Dennis Seibert ever since we arrived here. He first ran for Homosassa Special Water District commissioner 24 years ago because he felt that it was not being run like a business and needed someone with a business background, and the people of Homosassa are glad he did. He and the board have done a great job keeping taxes and rates down while protecting our valuable resource of drinking water. 

  • Vote Joey White for District 2

    With all the power play that is becoming more prevalent in our small community setting, it is becoming crystal clear that we need independent thinkers elected to the Board of County Commissioners.
