CRYSTAL RIVER — All three showed up, engaged in lively debate and were on their best behavior.
County Commission District 1 candidates
About 100 people crowded the American Legion Post 155 on Saturday morning to hear candidates for Citrus County Commission District 1 express their views in a campaign that is expected to draw much interest.
Incumbent Dennis Damato, seeking his third term, faces Crystal River Councilman Ron Kitchen and businesswoman Renee Christopher-McPheeters in the Republican primary. So far there are no Democrats in the race; official qualifying for the ballot is in June. If no Democrats enter the race than the primary will be it and the winner will get the office. Informed sources tell “The Eye” that Damato feels he has the election in the bag, with his huge war chest of funds and public sympathy for his medical condition.
Annie Jacobson’s new non-fiction book, Area 51, tells how Area 51 came into being, the real story of the crash at Roswell, and much more. All this information has been revealed through the Freedom of Information Act. You’ll be surprised and amazed.
Annie Jacobsen had exclusive access to nineteen men who served the base proudly and secretly for decades and are now aged 75-92, and unprecedented access to fifty-five additional military and intelligence personnel, scientists, pilots, and engineers linked to the secret base, thirty-two of whom lived and worked there for extended periods. In Area 51, Jacobsen shows us what has really gone on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear weapons to building super-secret, supersonic jets to pursuing the War on Terror.
Another non-fiction work is the piece by Jesse Ventura’s "63 documents the government doesn’t want you to read". The Freedom of Information Act releases that reveal the illegal activities of the C.I.A. and the shadow government that control the federal government in America. The official spin on numerous government programs is flat-out bullshit, according to Jesse Ventura. In this incredible collection of actual government documents, Ventura, the ultimate non- partisan truth-seeker, proves it beyond any doubt. He and Dick Russell walk readers through 63 of the most incriminating programs to reveal what really happens behind the closed doors. In addition to providing original government data, Ventura discusses what it really means and how regular Americans can stop criminal behavior at the top levels of government and in the media.
The ruling oligarchy that has a maniacal control of the federal government and has for the last fifty years is essential revealed by these two books.
