• Hard workers are America’s backbone
  • Don’t buy into free-money miracle

    Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift left me speechless with their column in the Aug. 26 Chronicle. They describe what they call “America’s free-money miracle.” They say there is nothing wrong with the Fed printing all the money we need as long as it doesn’t cause inflation. Like all the past failures of socialism, they don’t seem to recall history which says that printing money to pay for things you can’t afford has never worked.

  • Fundraiser response overwhelming

    I think you might be interested in learning about the overwhelming response we have had for the upcoming Susan Mitchell Fundraiser Auction.

    The fundraiser will be from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 7, at the Homosassa Museum Cafe. You have probably seen various notices about the event being held to honor and also to raise money for Susan.

    As a Citrus County resident diagnosed and living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), the news surrounding Robin Williams’ diagnosis has hit close to home, as does the speculation in the media regarding the disease, its medications, depression and suicide risk.

  • Kitchen thanks county voters

    I would like to thank the voters of Citrus County for your support that resulted in my victory in the recent Primary Election. I cannot begin to express how overwhelmed and humbled I am by the trust of your votes to help elect me to the county commission.

    I also wish to thank the many people who have volunteered and helped in many ways. Many have contributed funds to pay the costs of signs and advertising, some held signs and wrote letters, and of course, those who recommended me to your friends. 

  • McPheeters expresses thanks following election

    Now that the recent Republican Primary is history, I would like to thank all of my loyal friends for their votes and support in my recent campaign for Citrus County Commissioner, District 2. 

  • Await the future

    It is with humility and gratitude that I take this opportunity to thank the Citrus community for bestowing upon me, through the election process, the honor to serve as the County Commissioner District 4. I extend a special thanks to all who supported and trusted in me with their assistance in getting petition cards signed, donating money, hosting fundraisers, holding signs and in other areas of sharing a plan for community restoration. 

  • No more taxes

    An editorial in the Citrus County Chronicle, Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2009, stated, “In 2006, commissioners doubled the gas tax to 12 cents per gallon. Half of the revenue from the gas tax pays for road construction, while the other half pays for road repairs.” The debate in this editorial was whether to replace the gas tax with a sales tax. This idea was deemed a “bad deal for local residents.”
