• Turmoil will be terrible


  • We may be back to a familiar dilemma


    It has been reported in the past two days that two national security advisers to President-elect Trump have been pushed out of the Trump transition team. One of those is former congressman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., a respected voice on national security. The most obvious reason is that Trump insists that his family members be provided with national security clearances and I am sure that these two advisors have informed Trump that that is not appropriate or doable.

  • Trump may trigger progressive renewal


    On Nov. 10, in the midst of my grief and shame over the outcome of the Presidential election, the president of the College of William and Mary (of which I am an emeritus professor) sent out a message to the college community intended to comfort faculty and students. 

  • Show off your muscle car

    I read the Nov. 10 letter printed in the Chronicle (Turn youngsters onto classic cars). The writer lamented that young kids today cannot afford a new car, plus the fact that some area car shows are just that: new muscle cars that just peeled off their window sticker. You want to see a new Challenger? Just go to an area showroom; even take a test drive!

  • More power to Pantsuit Nation

    Just want to give a shout-out to the person who left the following note on  my windshield while I was shopping at the Citrus Hills Publix. Thank you, you gave me a smile and warm heart today.

    “I love your Hillary sticker! I am still with her!”  

    Solidarity — Pantsuit Nation.

  • Thanksgiving — the harvest festival

    The Mayflower ship boated Pilgrims and strangers from Plymouth, England in 1620. They headed for their new world, their land of America, a place where religious freedom came first.

    There were Indians to befriend, and a new colony to build and a celebration to be had called Thanksgiving.

  • Thank you for help with haunted maze

    Our 17th annual “Nightmare on Pine Bluff Street” haunted Halloween maze and graveyard was enjoyed by many people this year during the two nights it was open, Saturday, Oct. 29, and Halloween, Oct. 31. 

  • Top awards received at flower show

    On Nov. 10, the Garden Club of Crystal River presented a Standard Flower Show, “Celebrating Thanksgiving the American Way.” The show took place at the Crystal River Archaeological State Park in Crystal River. This location supported the theme of how we began the tradition of Thanksgiving in America and made us very welcome. The visitor center/museum contains exhibits displaying artifacts related to the site and provides a few comparisons with what was occurring in other parts of the world during similar time periods.

  • Monster trucks earn fan praise

    I just wanted to let the Citrus County Speedway know that we had a really great time on Saturday, Nov. 5, at the monster truck show. It was a great performance by all. The food and beverage selection was outstanding. We will definitely be back for the next show.

  • Letter speaks to how I feel

    Over the many years I have lived in Citrus County, I have never read a more perfect letter that speaks directly to my thoughts and feelings about our recent presidential election. 

    Mr. Donald Schultz of Homosassa has captured exactly how I have felt about the presidency of Barack Obama these past eight years. 

    It is with renewed hope that I look forward to these next four years.
