• President continues to have issues

    Trump has serious problems.

  • Use your time wisely, friends

    Time — back in the 1950s, a recording artist by the name of “Rusty” Draper recorded a song of that name. Some of the lyrics were: “Time you’re a villain. Time you’re a thief. Time you stole my youth from me; now you bring me grief.”

  • Board voted to destroy our water

    To my good friend Carl, I have not written a letter to the editor in a long time, but I can’t be silent any longer.

    I attended a Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) meeting in Crystal River, and after a short presentation, the public was allowed comment.

  • Quit playing around with words, media

    Wouldn’t it be nice if the partisan press and their Democrat Party partners would use words as commonly understood and not manipulated to present falsehoods as truthful? For example, saying Obamacare repeal will cause millions to “lose” health insurance. Isn’t it more honest to say millions would opt to not enroll if not mandated by penalties?

  • Political success spelled M-O-N-E-Y

    Money is the mother’s milk of politics. Everett Dirksen, a Republican senator, said that in the 60s and it is true today.

    Rafe Pilgrim says “we need to trash the embedded lie that third parties are doomed to failure.” Teddy Roosevelt almost did it with his Bull Moose Party, but no one has come close since.

  • On facts and fake news

    “Opinion: A view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.” — Oxford Living Dictionary.

    “Fake News: An inaccurate, sometimes sensationalistic report that is created to gain attention, mislead, deceive or damage a reputation.” — Whatls.com.

    I thought it might be good before starting this letter to get clear definitions of terms being used.

  • Concerned about Senator’s health

    After listening to the open Senate hearing with James Comey, I began to believe that Senator John McCain is becoming senile! I hope not, but it sure sounded like it.

  • In defense of our leader

    The liberal news media keeps complaining that President Trump has accomplished very little since his inauguration. However, when one looks at what he has achieved in this short time, there is much worthwhile to talk about. Many unwise regulations have been canceled and some worthwhile new directives have been issued.

  • Truth about public reaction to firing

    The paper on Tuesday, May 30 had a letter from Bill Claustre that concluded that the “American public supported James Comey’s removal, and it was long overdue.”

    To back up his conclusion, Claustre cited the lack of supported poll data that showed American indifference to the canning of Comey, but that is not what the numbers say and it surely was not the conclusion by NBC and the Wall Street Journal.

  • This is great customer service

    Thank you Daniel Bachelor, store manager, for your customer service satisfaction on June 5 at the Lowes store in Inverness. 

    Not getting into too much detail, Mr. Bachelor took care of a transaction involving a GE washer I purchased and it had issues. No satisfaction on phone calls, so I talked to him on the phone and at the store the same day, I purchased another brand, he resolved the issue of exchange and delivery all in one transaction.
