• Waste of tax dollars

    Scott Adams is a meanie. It said so in the Chronicle today, Oct. 2,8 and that is the determination of the Orange County attorney hired by the BOCC to look into his conduct, that he was mean to some. We spent $35,000 (or more) out of county for an attorney to conduct a witch hunt and reach a foregone conclusion. It is kind of like an algebra problem where you are given the answer and you have to back into the problem.

  • Finding freedom in religion

    Five Christian pastors in Houston, Texas were targeted by the government for not being on board the gay rights bandwagon. While gay marriage is a hot political topic in the US and 32 states have made same-sex marriage legal, the idea is being forced upon everyone, no matter what their religious beliefs.

  • ENDORSEMENT: Crist for governor

    Thank you very much for your endorsement Sunday of Charlie Crist as Florida’s next governor.

    I appreciate your hesitation in giving Crist your full-throated endorsement considering his past actions and the certainty that, if he is nothing else, he certainly is an opportunist.

  • ENDORSEMENT: Vote Dias for mosquito control

    We are proud to publicly endorse Michael J. Dias for mosquito control board, Seat 2. Michael is a dedicated family man, a successful businessman and has a heart for Citrus County. As a fifth-generation resident of Citrus County, Michael has continued the family tradition of living, working and raising his family in our community.

  • ENDORSEMENT: Support Milan

    No one thinks of the mosquito control board until election time. 

    That’s because Bob Milan sits on the board and sees to it that Citrus County mosquitoes suffer more than you do.

    In case you’re interested, that’s the same Bob Milan who saved us over a quarter million dollars on the purchase of land for the control board heliport.

  • ENDORSEMENT: Wyllie for governor

    I am voting for Adrian Wyllie and I urge others to vote for him for governor. 

    I support Wyllie because of his stance on a number of issues:

    Common Core (he wants to repeal it), property taxes (he plans to eliminate them on homesteads) and civil liberties (he vows to protect Floridians’ civil liberties from the federal government).

  • ENDORSEMENT: Support Pochis
  • ENDORSEMENT: Support Dias

    I am in full support of Michael Dias for Citrus County Mosquito Control Board Seat 2. Michael is a business man in our community and has the passion to make Citrus County a better place. He is the father of four school-aged children; his first priority is to keep his family safe.

  • ENDORSEMENT: Vote yes on 'Cent'

    The Tourist Development Council wants to expand its marketing effort through online content and contracting for a weather camera to increase exposure to the area. Why would advertising poorly maintained and unmowed residential roadways be a boost to the area? If local officials would travel all 1,678 centerline miles of county-maintained residential roads, it would be obvious that the appearance is not welcoming to tourism or future growth.
