• Neighborhood association heavy handed

    In the last two or so weeks, there have been some articles on Sugarmill Woods, but nothing on the association. 

    Granted, associations are added so neighborhoods are kept clean and rules enforced. I do not like this one. House cleaning would be in order, to bring in fresh ideas, and not roam the neighborhoods like the Gestapo. It’s too bad some people are given power and run with it. Rules seem to change often. 

  • Thanks for your support of veterans

    Thanks to all the volunteers who for the last 23 years have made Veterans Appreciation Week a success. It gets bigger and better every year. Many of them are the leaders of veterans and other organizations. The planning for this starts in March and continues every month until the event. 

    I also want to thank the Chronicle for sponsoring this and other events so important to our community.

  • Gun rights should not be usurped
  • Clinton knew Benghazi attack was planned

    The Chronicle headline that appeared in the Oct. 23 issue featured Hillary Clinton battling hours of questions from the Benghazi Committee.

    This Associated Press article portrayed Mrs. Clinton as a victim who successfully defended her record. If an unbiased person would look beyond decorum and examine the substance of certain portions of the hearings, they would conclude that Hillary Clinton, her State Department employees and the White House lied to the American people.

  • All rights are equal

    In rebuttal to John Rabun’s letter, published on Oct. 30: The 2nd Amendment is no more outdated that the 1st Amendment. When the Bill of Rights was added to the U.S. Constitution, the only means of public speech was either that, the spoken word, or a newspaper. The only firearms available were muskets and/or crude rifles and handguns, each only able to fire one shot at a time. 

  • Some perspective needed

    The letter titled “Liberal candidates turn my stomach” in the Tuesday (Oct. 27) Chronicle is best labeled balderdash, because of the writer’s lack of understanding of history.

  • Arms existed in Bible times

    This is in response to Carl Hiaasen’s Op Ed of Oct. 25, in which he states “… guns aren’t mentioned anywhere in scriptures. Firearms didn’t exist when the Bible was written …”

  • Documenting the refugee exodus

    As I watch and read the news reports about the Middle East and the horror that is taking place there, it makes me wonder about self defense. As the mass exodus takes place, the people, residents, of Syria and Iraq, regardless of religion, leave their homes for fear of their lives. They are going to other countries in masses and some of the countries are trying to stop them from coming into their country because they just can’t handle that many new people at one time.

  • Two sides of Benghazi hearing

    I watched much of the Benghazi hearing on Oct. 22. What I learned mostly was Secretary Clinton rarely communicated with her underlings in charge of the disaster at the embassy yet she says she takes full responsibility for what happened there on that fateful day.
    The next morning, I listened to the Fox report and the many points made. Discussion of the report to the public about a response to a video was included.

  • Thanks for helping and caring

    A special thank you to the Citrus County Cruisers for inviting Precious Paws Rescue volunteers along with our pets to the car show held at the new Crystal River Wendy’s on Saturday, Oct. 24.
