• Out-bullying a bully

    Scott Adams is still a bully — at least, that is what Gerry Mulligan stated in his column in today’s (Aug. 31) Chronicle. But gee, Gerry, you are the publisher of the only newspaper in the county and you buy how many thousands of barrels of ink each year? You control what is said in the paper and Scott Adams cannot defend against what you write about him? There is an old adage that you never cross swords with a guy who buys ink by the barrel.

  • Punish nonvoters

    “Kitchen, Carnahan win big.” This was the glaring headline published by the Citrus County Chronicle following the primary election. 

    Who was surprised? Probably just a few members of the editorial board who endorsed the losing candidates.

  • Do more to promote Citrus

    Dear Citrus County commissioners and business executives:

    I was stunned by the chart showing our single-family home (SFH) in Sugarmill Woods dropped $22,300 in value in June. May we ask what are you folks doing to improve the demand for homes in Citrus County?

  • Perry a victim of retribution

    We the people are outraged what the Democrats have done to Rick Perry because he was right in securing the borders. Our government will not secure the borders. So he did. The political smears are so bad. Even Chris Christie got smeared. 

  • Please report abuse if you see it

    There were nine surgeries to repair cheekbones and the broken nose; fresh scars evidenced horrific abuse as did bruises. Corrective surgeries on more private places of the body made hospital visits commonplace. No matter the danger and fear, returning to the “punishment place” seemed certain. Attempts to leave were futile and repeated promises gave a glimmer of hope that things would change and there would be no more abuse.

  • Thank you, voters

    I would like to thank the voters of Citrus County for re-electing me to the school board for another term.

    The support and confidence you extended throughout the campaign and in the past years are humbling and appreciated.

    I’ll strive each day to deserve your faith and trust. My primary focus will always be “excellence” in education, and I pledge to keep the children’s well-being foremost in my mind and actions.

  • Veganism cleaner

    Recently the drinking water of 400,000 Toledo residents was fouled by animal waste. With unfettered growth of animal agriculture and ineffective discharge regulations, it will happen again in our own state. The problem has become pervasive. Waste from chicken farms has rendered ocean off the East Coast unfit for fishing. Waste from Midwest cattle ranches carried by the Mississippi River has created a permanent “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico larger than that of the infamous 2010 BP oil spill.

  • Get involved in net neutrality

    Net neutrality is a major issue. I thought that the White House’s own website for aggregating citizen comments might be a place to go to add my name to those who would like to have the president’s views on the issue. Surprised was I to find that there was no pending petition. Well, there is now.

    Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 100,000 signatures by Sept. 20, 2014, the White House will review it and respond! The FCC is supposed to discuss net neutrality on that same date.

  • $1.6M spent with one person on two ideas

    We have two enterprises recommended to the county by Tampa lawyer Fred Busack which have gained his law practice over $1.6 million. What else is he going to propose and how much is it going to cost us?

    On Page A10 of the Aug. 28 Chronicle, it was reported that the county had already spent over $200,000 on Port Citrus since 2011. In addition, the county has spent a reported $1.6 million to Busack regarding the so-called medical corridor. 

    Let’s review the history:
