• Sounds like harassment

    Please, tell me this isn’t true. A member of the county government retaliating against a business and property owner for putting up a fence? Maybe the owner is trying to keep clients, customers and employees safe and prevent property damage and littering by lazy cut-through drivers.

  • Truck-driving litterers a disgrace

    It never ceases to amaze me about the pickup truck drivers in Citrus County, both commercial and private owners of pickups. When I drive the roads of our county and see the trash strewn all over the medians and on the side of our highways, the largest part of it from trash that is in the beds of these vehicles that was placed there by the owners knowing that when they drive down the roads at 35, 45, 55 mph, their garbage will be blown out of the back of their trucks ending up on our highways. 

  • Politics is very discouraging

    The system is broken. Washington, D.C., is a mess and both parties are to blame. Hardly anything good is passed for the betterment of the American people. 

  • Misunderstood due to mangled headline

    On May 12th, the Chronicle printed my letter regarding the lack of good government regulations associated with Mexican farm and ranch workers. The heading that the Chronicle used for this comment was “We must bring in more immigrants.” Unfortunately, that was a misinterpretation of my commentary. Therefore a fellow responded that I was wrong in inviting more illegal immigrants. Sorry folks, that was not what I wrote about.

  • Paper needs a different perspective

    Someone took the time to throw a free paper. Read the flier and was going to subscribe; during a rain storm, I decided to have a look.

    This is a liberal paper. I watched the Comey Show. Comey is on stage giving a performance. Comey is a disgruntled employee. Humiliated after being fired. Tell your readers something different — something different than CNN, MSNBC, etc.

  • An alternative view of Trump

    Re: Sally Quinn letter, May 30, 2017:

  • Seems like someone has an ax to grind

    Having read the Sunday Chronicle, one can only assume that our new sheriff has ruffled a few feathers in the department. Most likely some employees do not care for change and therefore make unsubstantiated complaints hiding behind anonymity. One commissioner fell for this trap that someone maybe in the sheriff’s office has laid. Ron Kitchen was one commissioner who did not and correctly said that any investigation was for the sheriff to do, not the commissioners.

  • Some facts about the Rosenbergs

    Dr. Schweitzer’s June 2 letter in the Chronicle offers a revisionist history regarding the conviction for espionage and subsequent execution in 1953 of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. Dr. Schweitzer would have us believe that the Rosenbergs were fraudulently targeted because they were communist sympathizers, convicted on dubious evidence, and unfairly executed.

  • Another hopeless ‘surge’ urged

    We are now advised that “Trump’s National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster will soon be proposing yet another troop increase in Afghanistan.”

  • What would this agreement do?

    The Paris Climate Accord is a very special document, in that maybe for the first time in history, 195 nations have somewhat agreed to do something. But as I read the accord, it became clear to me that the “something” is not well defined. The two-tiered objective is to limit the worldwide temperature increase to 2 degrees Celsius from the pre-industrial era average temperature. Or, better still, to 1.5 degrees. Take your pick: They are both in the document.
