  • Overcrowding in animal shelters

    Fox 13 (the “Good Day Tampa Bay” morning edition) did a segment on June 20 regarding the Hillsborough Animal Services shelter being so full that surrendered animals were at a high risk of being euthanized. 

  • Adams’ actions tiresome

    Well, it’s Tuesday, and the county commission just concluded its regular meeting, and as is predictable, the Scott Adams show rolled into town.

    Adams, in his usual bombastic style, regaled the board with unfounded accusations or misinterpretations of laws and regulations that do not apply to any member of the board or Citrus County. He persists in beating dead horses, no matter how many times he has been shown to be wrong, and making wild demands for resignations and investigations.

  • Thanks for help

    Our thanks to all who came to our assistance.

    On June 20, our car broke a tie rod turning into Dearborn Street. We had many people stop to help. Some gentlemen helped to push the car off to the side of the road out of traffic. One took my husband to our home to get our other vehicle. I called for a tow.

    While we were waiting, many people stopped, including an ambulance driver, to make sure we were OK. Scally’s came in a timely manner to give us a tow to our selected repair shop. 

  • Dr. Dixon and climate change

    I was glad to see Dr. Dixon return to writing his ultra-conservative column. I hardly ever agree with all he has to put forth, but it is interesting to have his perspectives on things. His current perspective on our ability to change climate is forgetful of climate changes that man has affected and have been observable during his lifetime.

  • What’s changed since Iran-Contra?

    I’m confused about all this Republican pseudo-outrage about the president’s “dealing with terrorists” in order to bring home an American soldier held hostage for five years. How is this different from another president doing pretty much the same thing — does “Iran Contra” ring a bell? 

  • Volunteering at animal shelter

    Editor’s note: A copy of this letter has been sent to all commissioners.

    After reading many posts put on social media, like Facebook, I must write and seek your reply.

  • Catholic Women’s Club touts year’s successes

    As summer approaches the Catholic Women’s Club is drawing to a close for the season. We have had a fun, rewarding and satisfying year since the opening club meeting in September 2013. As many of the ladies leave for the summer, we say so long until the fall.

  • Three strikes you’re out
  • Theory stretches global warming beliefs

    Interesting theory in Thursday’s Chronicle — a letter writer states that filling in harbors around the world is contributing to the rise of the sea level. 

    We might want to accuse the Dutch, as well, who are proud of having most of their country reclaimed from the ocean. And don’t forget the millions of kids worldwide, playing on the beach, building sand castles and displacing water. And last, but not least, we can blame fisherman who leave their beer out in the ocean by, well, you know what I mean.
