• Lives filled with promise

    The members of the GFWC Inverness Woman’s Club would like to thank a number of local businesses for their generosity and sponsorship connected with our recently held Artisans' Boutique.

  • Thanks for joining our walk

    The United Way of Citrus County hosted its annual Day of Caring on Saturday, Oct. 25. We were overwhelmed by the number of community members who participated in the 11-mile challenge.

  • Thanks for supporting our vision

    Some of us do realize what a privilege it is to live in Citrus County. Not every county can boast of citizens working together and being supported by county staff in local efforts to improve their community. Citrus County is such a county and Floral City are such a community, as was recently proven at the initial Floral City Vision 2035 Workshop.

  • On recycling's future, uncertain answers

    Re: “Uncertain future raises public-policy questions,” Page A12, Oct. 21.

    Your editorial presents an interesting point that also raises several questions. I applaud FDS for its efforts setting up Single Stream Processors Inc. as a common recycling center. Unfortunately, the economics they perceived were not borne out by the marketplace, at least at this time. Markets will change as creative people find more economical uses of waste products and it will recover.

  • Thank you for your vote

    I would like to thank the voters of Citrus County for selecting me to represent you as a county commissioner. Without the help and support of many all across our county, this victory would not have happened. I cannot begin to express how overwhelmed and humbled I am by your trust in me to elect me to this office, and I promise to do my best to not let you down.

  • The many benefits of a public Pirate's Cove

    This is in further response to the proposed development of a motel, restaurant and supportive infrastructure at Pirate’s Cove, and, specifically, to Mr. Bruce McLaughlin’s letter published in the Chronicle on Oct. 22 referencing my previous letter to the Chronicle objecting to this development. He accused me of being “misguided” and “misinformed,” and wished to “set the record straight.”

  • Color me colorless

    When does one become an independent voter? Is it when the very thought of another Clinton presidency or another Bush presidency causes one to gag? If so, I have arrived.

  • Convenient omission

    My, isn’t that convenient: Medicare handbook for 2015.

    It’s interesting that the press is not reporting about this.

  • Great service from local business

    Our roof developed a leak in one of the valleys, and water started to drip in my shop. On Saturday, I called Elite Roofing. First thing Monday morning I received a call from them and set up an appointment for the next day. At the agreed time a supervisor came out to inspect the roof. Due to some prior commitments, they worked with me to set up a repair date.

  • Please respect the rules of the road

    Many complain about those who seem to have no knowledge with regard to basic rules of the road. Driving slow in the passing lane, turning without signaling, holding up traffic by not pulling into the intersection to turn left, etc. I’ve never seen so many vehicles with broken turn signals and it’s sometimes difficult to remain calm after five miles behind “Pokey Joe,” who won’t move to the right lane so others can pass.
