• Comprehensive truck legislation needed
  • Cause and effect

    The recent candidacy made some Republicans wonder what the founding fathers had in mind. 

    “No person except a natural born citizen or a citizen of the United States shall be eligible to the office of president. Neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained the age of 

    35 years and be 14 years a resident within the United States.” 

  • Dogs need humans to take care of them

    I would like to respond to your July 13 article on the animal shelter. First, I am happy the commissioners decided to give the land, and if private citizens have to come up with the funds.

    I would be the first to help raise it, but Mr. Ron Kitchen and Mr. Scott Adams need to become better educated before they speak.

    I have been a nurse for 32 years and am a former hospice nurse.

  • Unkempt properties lose value


    Leaving lawns overgrown, bushes and trees untrimmed, debris strewn in driveways and lawns, is the “beginning of the end” of a neighborhood. Peeling and grossly discolored walls, loose boards and shingles, tires on the lawn, rusted and dented car wrecks on property will lower property values greatly.

  • Probity, new ideas welcomed


    I can appreciate your concern about transparency, is it a valid one however, you are ill advised. To answer you and others who are concerned, here are the facts:

    2. The meetings are open to the public and noticed as required.

  • Thank you for your service


    Dear Citrus County Sheriff’s Office and all deputies:

  • Rays woes explained

    As a lifelong baseball fan, I relish rooting for the home team — and living in Citrus County that would give me the Rays. I have noted the recent letters to the editor with amusement regarding the Rays’ current condition.

  • Transparency is essential

    Re;Three Sisters Springs group in the  July 14th paper.

    I find it very interesting that the narrative is being controlled by husband and wife. The Chronicle fails to mention the names correctly and misleads the public as to who is speaking for those that do not know the involved parties. With everything going on in today’s society, I believe it a good idea to be as transparent as possible to the public.
