Letters

  • Thanks for article
  • Sidewalks needed on U.S. 19

    Letter to: Jim Boxold, Secretary, Florida Department of Transportation

    I am writing this letter to address a concern from the constituents I represent in Citrus County, specifically those on the west side of the county along U.S. 19.

  • Clean up your act

    As a new winter resident of Citrus County, I am dismayed by the amount of litter thrown onto the land adjacent to the roads and highways. I cannot imagine why anyone would toss litter from their cars when all they have to do is set it aside and dispose of it at their next stop.

  • Knowing when it's time to hang up keys

    When is it the right time to hang up the keys and stop renewing your driver’s license? I’ve compiled a list of suggestions when considering whether to permanently park your car. 

  • Brace for impacts from Suncoast III
  • Letter promotes Muslim extremism

    The Dec. 16 letter, “Personal experience with Muslims,” advocating limbs be cut off for theft, was off base. The letter extols Muslim extremism. 

    The author also stated Iraqis dislike Americans, which I dispute as a false generalization. I have heard reports of friendly relations with Americans and that they appreciate the U.S. and what freedoms we have and could bring. 

  • U.S. should be above using torture

    Thanks to L.M. Eastman for the Dec. 22 letter praising Sen. Feinstein for the release of documents detailing use of torture by the CIA and high-level Bush administration figures on terror suspects. Some techniques used were extreme sleep deprivation, isolation, auditory overload, electric shock, hooding, beatings, waterboarding, withholding food and stress positions for lengthy periods. 

  • Heart goes out to Simon

    Sunday, I read about Simon, a healthy, happy dog who was euthanized at the Citrus County Animal Shelter in Inverness. Volunteers cared for him, took him to exercise, to adoption centers and even in the Beverly Hills Christmas parade. He would have been in the Inverness Christmas parade. That did not happen.
