  • Find efficiencies fire/EMS services
  • New homes do impact county

    The following is in reply to the impact fee editorial on page A8 of the July 8 Chronicle.

    In an editorial titled “Flawed taxing scheme in county,” the author makes the following statement:

  • Jeb Bush lost our vote at 'hola'

    We’ve lived in Florida 27 years — 25 in Citrus County. Our children are Florida-born and we wouldn’t live anywhere else.

    My wife and I agree Jeb Bush was the best governor during this time. In a speech a couple of weeks ago, he said we are a nation of immigrants, and he is absolutely correct. Then he repeated that in Spanish. That’s where he lost our vote.

  • Impact fees needed in county

    On July 21, Mr. Peter Monteleone of Pine Ridge wrote a letter to the editor, “Flawed taxing scheme in county.” He claims the editorial board’s opinion is ludicrous and flawed.

    He goes on to say that Citrus County impact fees are a preposterous, money-grubbing scheme to appropriate additional funds (besides taxes) from unsuspecting families who desire to live here.

  • Our tax dollars going to waste

    As President Reagan would say “there you go again.”

    Your editorial that the county finances are firming, housing prices are up (more taxes) so prosperity is on the horizon bespeaks of your leftist ideology.

  • If they want to go it alone, let them

    Re: “County, city differ on fire plan.”

  • Photo shows bobcat, not panther

    The photo of a deer and a large cat in the July 14 issue appears a bit strange. The cat appears to be a Florida panther, but is that so? Has anyone identified the cat? Is it possible that it is not a Florida panther?

    Editor’s note: The cat was a bobcat. Florida panthers are only found in south Florida.

  • Thanks for WWII stories

    Thank you to the Chronicle staff for the recent special attention to World War II veterans. I am especially grateful for the Independence Day WWII section, which included an article on my parents, Sam and Mary Speranza. It was quite interesting to me to read the stories of all the other veterans as well.

  • Munn column rewrites history

    Julianne Munn writes “… the south fought to uphold the values and goals of the founding fathers … ”

    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men were created equal … ” — founding father Thomas Jefferson.
