• I support Tim Langer for county commission

    I am supporting Mr. Tim Langer for District 3 Commissioner. Many people have asked me why I would throw my support behind a Democrat, when I am a Republican? There are many reasons to support the man and his platform. I believe first and foremost that impact fees have to be restored. Secondly, I believe that something has to be done about the animal shelter. Third, I believe it is time to face facts we are not going to get anywhere if we continue to cut services and reduce taxes. 

  • I like Hillary Clinton for president

    I have a long list of reasons for endorsing Hillary Clinton for president, but for sake of brevity I submit solely my S list: Mrs. Clinton is sage, sensible, and sane.

  • What do you have to lose?

    Dear Voters,

    Our presidential campaign continues to twist in really strange ways. If you choose to vote for the current Republican candidate for the presidency — then, ”What do you have to lose?”

  • Please, let’s save our waters

    As we are celebrating Save Our Waters Week, it is absolutely necessary to save our weak waters.

    Understanding some facts on the status of Florida’s drinking water is essential.

  • Let’s keep shining light on issue

    I would like to thank the Chronicle for publishing my article last  Sunday concerning the problems in the Veterans Administration (VA) in their support of America’s veterans. 

    Too, I apologize for the length of my diatribe, but there are so many problems needing addressed in this situation it would take a novel to outline each and every one. I hear it day after day in our veterans organization.

  • This election gets crazier every day

    Does anyone see a problem with  Mr. Trump and his views on Putin? Putin is an out-and-out dictator. Trump said he has a 82 percent approval rating that’s because the other 18 percent have been put in prison. The press is owned by the government and has one viewpoint and if you disagree you just might disapear.

  • May rethink position on half-cent tax

    In the Sept. 12 Chronicle, Mr. Kenneth Cole suggests I “should take a course on my math skills.” 

  • World-class athletes not easy to produce

    My best friend’s daughter, Leanne, has been a gymnast for the last six years. She is now 13. She lives in another state, which is highly populated so there are many competitive events. For the past two years she has been competing on a statewide level, frequently winning first prize. While training and entering competitive events, she has maintained honor roll grades.

  • I found solution to road woes

    I have a solution to our Citrus County road surface deterioration problems. Please review my suggestions and know it can be done at a great reduction in expense.

    The reason our roads are falling apart is because of the chemical compounds and both qualitative and quantitative material being used. At present, our road crews use an asphalt, rock and sand combination, which in short time and weather conditions, start to separate and crumble. Thus leaving potholes and worse!

  • NFL’s stance about protests a copout


    Regarding San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick’s one-man protest, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell stated that there is no rule stating that players must stand for the national anthem. In my opinion that is a cowardly copout.
