• Representation in faith

    I see Mr. Kitchen thanked the voters of Citrus County for selecting him to represent them as county commissioner.

    As a reminder, Mr. Kitchen, you have a duty, as a public servant, to represent all the public, not just those who voted for you.

    For years, while you were the mayor of Crystal River you monopolized (for 6 years) all the invocations, which were suited to your personal religious beliefs.

  • Local homeless law ridiculous

    Police arrested 90-year-old WWII Veteran — Arnold Abbot for violating a Fort Lauderdale ordinance prohibiting the feeding of the homeless. He faces 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.

  • Thank you IPS students
  • Should have shown respect

    I would like to thank all who participated, Chris Gregoriou, Crystal River Mayor Bob Plaisted and the city of Inverness for once again hosting the Veterans Day Parade and the 11th-Hour service. As always, they did a fantastic job and the turnout was impressive. As the flags waved, the bands played and veterans young and old who have served at some point over the last 70 years marched by, there was definitely a sense of patriotism and pride. 

  • For shelter, seek better answers

    There appears to be a belief among politicians that supporters will always be there regardless how they act or vote. Personally I believe this falls in the realm of fantasy that most elected officials seem to live in.

  • Give it up, already

    It appears the Chronicle is having a hard time getting over Charlie Crist losing the governor’s race. In today’s paper (Nov. 9) they ran an Associated Press article bemoaning if only more Latinos and blacks in Miami-Dade County communities had came out and voted, Charlie would have won. 

  • Action, not thought, needed when challenged

    I read with great interest Cortney Stewart’s guest column “Thought, not might, needed in the Middle East.” 

  • Sticker shock at the water tap

    I just received my water bill for Dunnellon irrigation water, with an outrageous increase. Evidently they are not aware of the law of diminishing returns.

    Here is how I see it: First they add a 25 percent surcharge to help pay off the debt for Greenlight, the ill-conceived idea that if one invests in anything electronic it will automatically make a huge profit. I guess they didn’t realize Dunnellon is not Silicone Valley.

  • The big rip-off

    Editor’s note: The following letter was sent to the author’s elected federal officials.

  • No defense for Obama’s performance

    The Chronicle recently ran a letter that was usual commentary from liberals. I am a conservative – an American, and I love discussions about Obama with liberals. No matter how intelligent they think they are, they invariable run long on slogans and emotions, yet woefully short on facts.
