Today's Opinions

  • Who can we blame?

    It is reported that our country, the United States of America, is deep in debt.  It seems our elected governmental officials including the President have had to borrow money to pay for the things our leaders believe are necessary.  I mean, actually borrow money above all the taxes that are collected from those of us who pay them.

    Now that US Senate has passed a bill, S 1789, to reform the ailing US Postal Service, critics are trying to disable the bill on its way to the House of Representatives. Business Week recently catalogued unhappy stakeholders, including postal unions, postal management and some Republicans who wrongly think the bill burdens taxpayers.

    Dear Editor:

  • Desalination's time is now

    Maybe the various Water Management Districts and Environmental Protection agencies should stop squabbling with each other over which county has the highest priority for the need to find a solution to our state's approaching water crisis.
    As long as there's water in the rivers and lakes, and peoples’ wells are still pumping water, no one will pay attention to the dire reports of those various water district officials until it's too late.
    You know that old expression: “You never miss the water until the well runs dry.”

    "Spring begins." My calendar has informed me of the official beginning of this refreshing season, although I've felt it outside for a few weeks now. As a Floridian, I know spring will be short but it will also be time to break out of your everyday routine, release some stress, get out of the office and experience nature in Florida's state parks.

  • Thankful for support

    The Board of Directors, staff, and clients of the Levy Association for Retarded Citizens wish to thank the community and Chiefland Citizen for their support of the LARC Thrift Store Clean Sweep Sale.
    LARC is so blessed to be located in an area where the people care and support the events we sponsor.  Thank you each and every one.

  • A list to clip

    It's not often that we get an opportunity to clip something out of the paper and carry it around to remind us of the good things in the world, but this is one.
    At the recent Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Association's Youth Livestock Show and Sale a 10-year-old boy showed us what community is about.
    Chandler Beach's decision to give the money from the sale of his pig to Corbin Wiggins, a teen battling cancer for the second time in as many years, touched the hearts and wallets of many.
