• Pastor Alexander deserved honor

    Finally! I have lived in Inverness for over 20 years. During that time I worked for the 2000 and 2010 Census, worked at the polls for elections, worked part-time for a private CPA firm and volunteered many hours. During these activities I have met many people and been involved with various churches and other organizations.

    I became aware that no one in Citrus County has the heart for the homeless that Doug Alexander has and subsequently nominated him numerous times for Citizen of the Year.

  • Finally, a solution to animal shelter issue

    It is time to stop all arguments pro and con for a new shelter. Here is how it can be done.

    We need 100 people to donate $1,000 or 200 people to donate $500. These funds will match the money already donated. I ask the Chronicle to list the banking facility who is holding the aforementioned money so everyone can contribute to that agency. Most pet owners will contribute if they know where to donate.

  • Get rid of impact fees

    Editor’s note: The following letter was sent to county commissioners, it has been edited for length.


    My understanding of government function regarding capital improvements is they use bonding to obtain money for a project. The people who use and benefit from services and facilities should pay for them.

  • A lesson learned, warning to others

    I am an 82-year-old Meadowcrest resident. I am writing to alert people to only use licensed and insured cleaning services. I was not insured.

    On Dec. 2, I was robbed of over $10,000 in gold jewelry and pearls. This has been reported to the police and they are investigating this for me. I have little hope of ever recovering my losses, although the 14K gold charm bracelet would be easily recognized. I only hope the thief is eventually caught and arrested.

  • Did Obama have the same treatment?

    The election is over. Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States. Recent editorials have stated that people who voted for Clinton should support President-elect Trump and give him a chance. Regardless of who you supported in this election, this is the right thing to do for our country.

    That said, I would ask those same people who did not vote for President Obama in either 2008 or 2012 if you supported Obama as president and gave him a chance for the betterment of our nation?

  • MPO leadership not up to the task

    The director of the Hernando-Citrus Metropolitan Planning Organization says that “it is what it is” referring to FDOT’s scrapping of the 12-foot multi-use path that would separate walkers and bicyclists from U.S. 19 traffic. He goes on to say that “It’s better than what we’ve got right now.”

  • Thank you for help, donations

    On behalf of Home Instead Senior Care and the Lecanto Levi’s 4-H Club, we would like to thank the community for its overwhelming support of the Be a Santa to a Senior program this holiday season.

  • Kmart leaving is part of a trend

    Sorry to see Kmart leave. It is really sad to read in the paper about another store closure in the Crystal River Mall. Especially one that has been here for over 20 years.

  • Ready to fill in the blanks

    I like calendars. The old- fashioned kind you hang on the wall. A pretty picture that changes with each month. I like putting my appointments, meetings and different events where I can see them.

    Every New Year’s Day, I remove the previous calendar, and hang up the new one. I look through the past year, remembering the events that took place.

    Some good, some, not so much. The little squares, have a brief notation signifying the mundane, to what was important, at the time.

  • Whose side is he on anyway?

    It is always disconcerting when a person who has little or no credentials criticizes someone who has impeccable credentials.

    Some people believe that pertinent federal government research should be sent to private research facilities. However, this would be quite difficult without the proper FBI or CIA clearances.

    No where in these critiques do we find mention of the many “boo boos” of Mr. Trump concerning the numerous lawsuits from American women.
