  • Listen to voters

    I had intended to be at the BOCC meeting to suggest the vote to purchase the Meadowcrest building be deferred until the new commissioners are sworn in, which would have been the honorable thing to do. Knowing the voting record of some of the commissioners, this request would have fallen on deaf ears and, as the headline in the Sept. 24 Chronicle shows, it was a waste of time to make this request.

  • Thank you, HPH

    My wife and I recently lost a very special member of our family. Genevieve (Frenchie) was 92 years old. In the last weeks of her life on Earth, she was under the care of one of the finest organizations I have ever known. 

  • Stop Ebola spread

    I think we would all like to know why the airlines did not stop the run back and forth to these countries in Africa that has the Ebola outbreak. Now we have to deal with that person who showed up in Texas with Ebola. 

    The CDC says we have nothing to worry about. Yes! We should be worried. Only now the airlines are saying they will not fly to and from those infected countries in Africa. It is a little late. 

  • Vote down 'Cent'

    I was going to vote yes for this tax until I read the ordinance.

    Section (5)(c) of the ordinance reads: “The board may modify the use of the transportation surtax subsequent ordinance.” This should not be in this ordinance as per Ms. Parsons’ statement in explaining it to the people at a recent board meeting. 

  • Give youth complete sex education

    I read with interest the guest column entitled, “The River Project is not enough to protect teens” by the Citizens for Informed Teens, a group of local citizens who are spotlighting the importance of educating our youth with complete sex health information to prevent teen pregnancy.

  • New plans needed to save water resources

    On the morning of Sept. 22, I took my brother-in-law kayaking down the Chassahowitzka River to the Gulf and was extremely upset at what we saw. First, at the head waters, all of the surrounding bottom is now black. If not for the slight boiling at the head, I would not have been able to determine the area which used to be a ultra light blue with a white sandy bottom. 

  • Chamber not supporting Cent for Citrus

    Editor’s note: The following letter was sent by the Citrus County Chamber to Interim County Administrator Jeff Rogers and is being reprinted at the Chamber’s request.

    Dear Mr. Rogers, 

    Re: Cent for Citrus

  • Yard sale all about the community

    We would like to set the record straight about numerous negative and false statements regarding The Great Florida Yard Sale in a past letter to the editor.
