Below you will find an index to the newspaper articles featured. I have organized them by a brief description followed by surnames appearing in the article (if any), followed by the year. The name of the newspaper appears with each article. I have scanned and transcribed articles from which to choose. This is an ongoing feature so stop by often for more articles and stories concerning Citrus County.
