Here we go again-letter to editor

It reminds me a bit of conditions in my home town in Arkansas, where it was said that you knew when an election was coming because politicians would start showing up in church. Gov. Rick Scott's former company, Columbia/HCA set what was then a record for a Medicare fraud settlement. And, according to Carl Hiaasen, Scott took the Fifth repeatedly during inquiries into his subsequent medical enterprises during the election.

Breath of Fresh Air-Letter to Editor…click here

  Dear Editor,   Today I read the 9/30/13 Chronicle article about the new pope: "A breath of fresh air" It was very good.   If you publish another one on "faith" you might think about that he - (besides favoring an American Ford Focus car for transportation) Pope Francis recently asked for world wide … Continue reading Breath of Fresh Air-Letter to Editor…click here

Thinking of Others-Letter to Editor Click Here

Sometimes it is easy to only think of ourselves. At the BOCC Budget meeting on 6/18/13, another speaker and myself stated that the lower income county employees, after five years without a raise should have raises. Today, I read that the Commissioners have agreed to give these county workers a raise - I commend them … Continue reading Thinking of Others-Letter to Editor Click Here

Jeannette Goldsmith evaluation of the EDC is spot on. It is time that joe meek step down and is replaced with a common sense doer. The report shows the incompetence of his leadership, come on no sewer and water or a clear vision, nor a strategic plan, not even a shovel ready site.

Those Who Say "I Support the Troops" Should Just Stop, Out of Respect for the Troops …a letter from Michael Moore

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 I don't support the troops, America, and neither do you. I am writing this as I have just learned of the suicides of two more of our active duty reservists who live here in the Traverse City, Michigan area. That brings the total number of soldier suicides (that I know of) … Continue reading Those Who Say "I Support the Troops" Should Just Stop, Out of Respect for the Troops …a letter from Michael Moore

Letter to Editor: Renee the real deal

As the first Republican-elected commissioner on the Citrus County Board of Commissioners, in the ’70s, I feel a responsibility to weigh-in on the Aug. 14 race for Citrus County Commission, District 1.

Welcome to Kandahar-Letter to Editor

In the airport in Atlanta yesterday, I happened to be standing next to some American soldiers, wearing camouflage, on their way to Afghanistan. They knew the name of the province that they were going to, but they were arguing over what part of the country that province is in. One said the east. One said … Continue reading Welcome to Kandahar-Letter to Editor

Letter to Editor-Charles Chamberlain

Let's be clear about one thing: Wall Street hates us. They hate you... me... Occupy Wall Street... and they really hate Elizabeth Warren. They know that Elizabeth Warren is perhaps their biggest single threat going into 2012. She has a record of fighting banks and holding them accountable. She has tens of thousands of grassroots … Continue reading Letter to Editor-Charles Chamberlain

Senators Lieberman and Coburn WAR ON SENIORS/LETTERS

Last week, Senators Lieberman and Coburn introduced a new front in the war on senior citizens: unprecedented cuts to the Medicare program that raise the eligibility age to 67 and force seniors to pay more for prescription drugs. We’re fighting back by expanding our campaign to protect Social Security to include Medicare and other social … Continue reading Senators Lieberman and Coburn WAR ON SENIORS/LETTERS

Senator-Letter to Editor-Bill Nelson

How would you feel about turning over to your guaranteed Social Security savings to Wall Street? You probably wouldn't feel too good about it. Not too many Americans do. That's why Republicans have tried to keep their latest plan to privatize Social Security quiet -- and that's why our public petition to oppose the Republican … Continue reading Senator-Letter to Editor-Bill Nelson
