Letters

  • Dr. Dixon and climate change

    I was glad to see Dr. Dixon return to writing his ultra-conservative column. I hardly ever agree with all he has to put forth, but it is interesting to have his perspectives on things. His current perspective on our ability to change climate is forgetful of climate changes that man has affected and have been observable during his lifetime.

  • What’s changed since Iran-Contra?

    I’m confused about all this Republican pseudo-outrage about the president’s “dealing with terrorists” in order to bring home an American soldier held hostage for five years. How is this different from another president doing pretty much the same thing — does “Iran Contra” ring a bell? 

  • Volunteering at animal shelter

    Editor’s note: A copy of this letter has been sent to all commissioners.

    After reading many posts put on social media, like Facebook, I must write and seek your reply.

  • Catholic Women’s Club touts year’s successes

    As summer approaches the Catholic Women’s Club is drawing to a close for the season. We have had a fun, rewarding and satisfying year since the opening club meeting in September 2013. As many of the ladies leave for the summer, we say so long until the fall.

  • Three strikes you’re out
  • Theory stretches global warming beliefs

    Interesting theory in Thursday’s Chronicle — a letter writer states that filling in harbors around the world is contributing to the rise of the sea level. 

    We might want to accuse the Dutch, as well, who are proud of having most of their country reclaimed from the ocean. And don’t forget the millions of kids worldwide, playing on the beach, building sand castles and displacing water. And last, but not least, we can blame fisherman who leave their beer out in the ocean by, well, you know what I mean.

  • Look at alternatives for animal shelter

    There has been a lot of discussion of the need for a new animal shelter.

    Having had pets all my life, I share the desire that they should be cared for and treated with dignity. That said I feel the commission should look at this need in more creative ways. The county should establish clear priorities, especially under the current fiscal circumstances.

  • Patches won’t work

    I live in an area of Citrus County so-called “Green Acres,” which has become a very dangerous place, due to road conditions. If a fire engine or ambulance were to try to get into my block, they would have one heck of a ride! Consider a person in critical condition in an ambulance getting thrown around, up and down and side to side! Some of our potholes are 8 to 10 inches deep! 

  • Thank you for supporting me

    On June 20 I was re-elected at the point of qualification and would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the support and the trust the people of District 34 have put in me as your representative.

    As your representative, I have worked on getting funding for water projects, supported our veterans, worked to diversify the economy, fought fraud, waste and abuse, as well as ensured that the agencies that you as a taxpayer pay for are more responsive.
