• Demand more accountability

    I am sad to learn the standards of transparency and truthfulness are higher for an NFL Super Bowl quarterback than for a former secretary of state and presidential candidate. What is discouraging is it does not bode well for our republic nor speak well of the state of the so-called “mainstream media.” The double standards regarding media treatment of Tom Brady versus Hillary Clinton are troubling to me and should be for every American.

  • Looking for my doctor

    I am looking for Dr. (Catherine) Navarro. I am told she is no longer affiliated with her previous doctor. 

    She has been my doctor for several years and I need to make an appointment to see her. 

    If any one has information regarding the location of her office and the phone number, please post in the Chronicle.

  • Dr. Ben Carson a political phenomenon

    I find that folks today are really fed up with politics as usual. Dr. Carson like Gen. George Washington never intended to seek office of the presidency of the United States, but both gentlemen were concerned for the future of our great nation. In Washington’s case, it was the forming of a common sense government; and Dr. Carson’s, an apolitical hopeful, is restoring the necessary common sense and good judgment to provide a positive future.

  • Field Day best yet

    Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Homosassa Springs, the CREST students and Key Center clients had another great Field Day. It was truly awesome!

    Kiwanis Club members make the annual event a success. Through their dedication, our clients and students are able to participate in a series of well-coordinated events and experience the joy of winning.

  • Hotel deal not over

    C’mon, folks! If you think the hotel deal is over, get ready, because as soon as the political people realize how many squanderable tax dollars they can get, that complex will be built. My prediction is by this time next year.

    As you know by now, nothing stands in the way of “get the tax bucks.”

  • IRS is impractical

    Permit me to answer some of Wilma Moore’s criticism of the Fair Tax as impractical, unwise or unable to deal efficiently with financial matters.

  • Frozen fun

    I was having lunch at Wendy’s in Ocala, which included my usual chocolate Frosty, when I noticed a man across the room eating a chocolate Frosty. He was alone and seemed to really enjoy every spoonful. After a few minutes, I went over to his table and told him I couldn’t help but notice how much he enjoyed his Frosty. After a few seconds of bewilderment, he told me he really likes them and has great pleasure and peace of mind when eating them.

  • Promote tourism — are you nuts?

    This is in response to the article about (Inverness City Manager) Frank DiGiovanni wanting more people coming to Citrus County. Why do some community leaders keep trying to promote tourism in this quiet, laid-back community?

  • Tourism must take organized approach

    Gerry Mulligan was spot on when he recently noted if Crystal River is to have more appeal to tourists or day trippers, more businesses should have Sunday hours. If you want to be a tourist destination or attract people from cities like Tampa for the day or weekend, you really have to look like you want them here.

  • Keep fire under sheriff's control

    At the April 7, county commission meeting, Commissioner Adams stated he would like the fire and rescue be turned back to the commissioners.

    Well, over the past 20 years, fire and rescue was under the BOCC jurisdiction, and look what happened. Almost everything — equipment, stations, gear, etc., has been let go to such extremes that Sheriff Jeff Dawsy and Fire Chief Jim Goodworth are now trying to play catch-up.
