Please call us at (352) 238-5454 if you are a business interested in selling the Hernando Southern Hills development moratorium avoided By LISA MACNEIL HERNANDO SUN STAFF City Attorney Becky Vose opened the March 19, 2018 Brooksville City Council meeting segment describing the hand-delivered submis sion of a proposal by GreenPointe Holdings, which is the property management compa ny for Southern Hills Plantation (SHP). Vose recommended that the attorneys for Southern Hill and GreenPointe be heard, and she be direct ed to negotiate a binding agreement to complete and repair the water system in Phase 3 at Southern Hills, without the enacting of a mora torium at this time. The intended Emer gency Ordinance 886 states in part, Due to for this area, the Florida Fire Code provides that construction is not to be commenced, and new occupancy shall not be permitted. Therefore, it appears that a morato rium on the issuance of development orders, (the most common of which is a building permit), is appropriate until ade Clearwater Attorney Donna Feldman rep resents the SHP Group, the owner of the ma jority of Southern Hills undeveloped proper ties. Feldman began by to work with the city, and has been attempting to do so for over a year. She also stated that the Emergency Ordinance is invalid due to improper service, saying that she had learned about it two days prior to the meet ing, when reviewing the agenda. We are willing to enter into a document, which would constitute an amendment to the existing amendment and restated development agreement. Feldman said it is best to enter into a proposal that works. There are other water issues in Southern Hills. Because there is only a single water source, and lack of a looped system, a recent out subdivision until the wa ter line was completely repaired. If the water system had been looped, water service may not have been interrupted at all. GreenPointes proposal addresses this issue. However, Feldman said, We will not do it under the threat of litigation or a poten tial moratorium brought later. She said that recently, a meeting was held in January, with discuss the intention of going forth with a pro ductive solution, but was met with the ordinance for the moratorium. dent of Coastal Engi neering gave a detailed account of the water problems to the council. The water pressure in Phase 3-A-1 has been suppression, and has residents inside homes in that area. The cur rent plan is to install a booster, which was installed originally, but will be moved to a better location. The remedies are proposed to be com pleted in 150 days. The budget already exists, and is not expected to cost the city anything. Voses recommenda tion to the council is that she draft a regular ordi nance for the moratori um, which will not go agreement is breached. Council Member Natalie Kahler said of the recommendation, and GreenPointes position on the mora torium, People need suppression lets get this done. Kahler added that there was no reason to believe that the representatives were not being honest, which sparked a few minutes of contention between some of the council members and Feldman, who came to the podium By Christine Sexton NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE --Florida banned smoking in workplaces more than 15 years ago, and a powerful state panel on Tuesday backed a proposal that would add vaping and electronic cigarettes to the ban. Former state Sen. Lisa Carlton, the main backer of the proposal, said Floridians have been subjected to second-hand vapor when they attend movies or restaurants and other public places since the devices started proliferating. The Florida Constitution Revision Commission voted 26-6 in favor of the vaping ban and placed it come before early May, when the commission is Armed with a 2016 surgeon generals report on electronic cigarettes that shows secondhand aerosol exhaled into the air from vaping can expose others to potentially harmful chemicals, Carlton said now is the time to have voters consider the ban. Add e-cigarettes and vaping into the Constitu tion so that our citizens can stop being experiments. Because thats what weve been as those of us who dont vape have been an experiment for all of the citizens that are vaping, Carlton said. I think its time to clean up our restaurants, our malls, our movie theaters, so we can all breathe clean air again, which is what the 2002 constitutional amendment intended. Carlton recalled the story of watching her gymnast daughter work out at a gym and sitting behind some one who was vaping. It infuriated me that I was sitting in a health facil ity in a closed workplace watching activities of chil dren and there was somebody in front of me vaping, she said. And I can go on and on, but I wont. Nearly 71 percent of voters in 2002 approved the ban on smoking in workplaces, including gather ing spots such as restaurants. If Carltons proposed Vaping could be added to state smoking ban By ROCCO MAGLIO The Florida Legislative session ended March 9, 2018. The session lasted 60 days starting on Janu ary 9. The short duration of the legislature is a result of Floridas Agrar ian past where farmers would be available to serve during the winter, since that is their slow time. This was an eventful session where the leg islature was thrust into the national spotlight by protests from a few of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas students ad vocating for gun con trol. They did pass gun control legislation in this session including raising the minimum age to purchase a gun to 21 and creating a 3 day wait ing period to purchase weapons. Rep. Blaise Ingoglia provided an update on the State of Floridas budget. The budget con tains funding for several projects in Hernando. The Hernando Beach $1.2 Million for a new facility. The Brooksville Fire Department received $353,150 for renovations. The Hernando County School Districts Proj ect seaHORSE received $205,000 to provide mental health services to middle school chil dren. The Calienta Street Stormwater & Roadway Improvement Project received $260,000. The Cyril Drive Roadway Improvement Project re ceived $1.3 million. The last two projects are to The City of Brooks ville was seeking appropriations for some stormwater projects, but funding did not come through this session. State appropriations come through for local projects several times to contest communications and the stalling of the project for over two years, ad amant that they are not in breach of the existing agreement. The council voted on rescind litigation for the and the second; to draft an amendment to the development agreement, to be approved within the next two weeks. Council Member Joe Bernardini was the only one opposed to rescind ing litigation against GreenPointe. All council members were in favor of the amended agreement. ciency area constitutional amendment (Proposal 65) gets on the November ballot, it would need approval from 60 percent of voters to pass. Carltons proposal would change the wording of the smoking ban from workplaces without tobacco smoke to workplaces without tobacco smoke or vapor. The pro tion of vapor-generating electronic device. Carltons proposal was support ed by most of the Constitution Revision Commission members, including commissioner and state Attorney General Pam Bondi who said that in 2002, No one contem plated e-cigarettes. The 37-member Florida Consti tution Revision Commission meets every 20 years to evaluate possible changes to the Constitution. The panel can put issues before voters without having to gather petition signatures or get proposals ap proved by the Legislature. Heather Youmans, Floridas senior director for government rela tions for the American Cancer Soci ety Cancer Action Network, said her association supports modernizing the states clean indoor-air act laws forward for public health. Meanwhile, Constitution Revi sion Commission members told stories with public vaping. Com missioner Carolyn Timmann said she was surprised to discover that Floridas smoking ban didnt apply to electronic cigarettes. Timmann, who is the Martin County clerk of court, shared a story about a plume of smoke from a juror vaping. You could see a little bit of a panic starts. People were looking around thinking, Whats going on? she said, adding that a sher jurors was vaping in the courthouse. I assumed that it wasnt allowed. To me, I thought it fell right under the smoking ban, she said. But Luckily, there was enough pressure from other jurors where this juror kinda went outside and continued that. Bondi said the proposal allows the state to keep up with technol ogy. I dont think anyone could ever contemplate e-cigarettes where kids can be putting all this junk in them, taking them out and smoking whatever they want. I think we are just keeping up with technology, something that was never contem plated 20 years ago, she said.

BY JIM TURNER NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE --Floridas nearshore waters future oil and gas drill ing under a measure that moved closer Tuesday to appearing before voters in November. The state Constitution Revision Commission voted 32-1 to advance a proposal (Proposal 91) that seeks to prohibit oil and gas drilling within about three miles of the East Coast and nine miles of the Gulf of Mexico coast. These things (oil rigs) are not what we want along our shorelines, said Commissioner Jacqui Thurlow-Lippisch, a former mayor of Sewalls Point who sponsored the proposal. We want to protect our natural resources and our scenic beauty. Commissioners still vote on the proposed constitutional amendment before it could go on the November ballot. The commission meets every 20 years to propose con stitutional amendments and faces an early May Thurlow-Lippisch said her proposal is a needed statement to help the economy, wildlife and quality of life for Florid ians. It doesnt matter if you are rich or poor, or black or white or an alien from outer space, if you get to come here, you can walk the beaches and enjoy what they are, Thur low-Lippisch said. Florida law currently prohibits the state from granting leases to drill for oil or natural gas in state coastal waters. But putting a drilling ban in the Constitution would be more permanent. Thurlow-Lippischs proposal wouldnt impact the transportation of oil and gas products produced outside those waters. The proposal comes amid debate about Trump administration plans to al low oil and gas drilling in parts of the country. U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke appeared in January in Tallahassee and said drilling would not occur the administrations stance has continued to draw questions. The issue involves waters beyond the nations outer conti nental shelf --a juris dictional term describing submerged lands 10.36 das West Coast and three Coast. Former state Senate President Don Gaetz, a Niceville Republican who is a member of the Constitution Revision Commission, recalled the deadly 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico and said the goal is for it not to happen again. Even the perception of oil reaching our Florida beaches, on the Northwest Florida coast, brought our economy, which is largely dependent on tourism, on its knees, Gaetz said. The economic damages the billions of dollars. The region has been able to rebound in part through a settlement with BP. About three-quarters of the $2 billion the state is expected to receive organization Triumph Gulf Coast, which will direct money to econom ic-development projects in Northwest Florida. Constitution Revision Commission member Gary Lester, a vice president of The Villages who was appointed to the commission by Gov. Rick Scott, cast the lone vote against the drilling-ban proposal. Sen. Tom Lee, a Tho notosassa Republican and member of the com mission, advised Thur low-Lippisch --while voting for the proposal --to consider adding a constitutional rewrite. I can see a day where technology is advanced to a point where some one may be able to do something with a level of comfort, security and safety that would satisfy you and the rest of us, that they could protect Flori das Gulf Coast and still accomplish the objective we dont want them ac complishing through what is loosely called drilling today, Lee said.

Erdrich expressed her emotions through art in order to heal and much of her work after the storm inspired by the No Name Storm, There can be no beginnings without endings. There must be death before there is birth. There can be no creation without destruc tion. The items she collected from locals who were also deeply impacted by the No Name Storm were part of her exhibition. Arline Erdrich passed away in 2011. The collection has been packed away in a box for many years and its existence long forgotten. Until chance circumstances arose, putting the box and the memories it contained into the possession of Spring Hill resident Debby Heck man. Heckman remarked, When I came across the box There are so many tokens and memorabilia, I couldnt just discard it. Here is a catalogue of the No Name Storm items in Erdrichs collection. Ive organized it by documents, items related to Mel Pettit, storm related photographs and physical items. The question remains as to whether the items in this box should be put on display in the community or re main packed away. Many who lived through that trying time may not wish to revisit the painful memories, but it is a part of our history and should not be forgotten.

Cres cent Community Clinic has been established to improve the health and well being of indigent and uninsured citizens of our community in order to provide the best health care to our citizens regardless of the ability to pay. Volunteers will hide eggs for you from 2 am to 6 am on April 1st in your front yard. The group even has a volunteer bunny who will hide eggs on Easter Day from 8 am to 3 pm then knock on the door and take pictures with the children. If this idea gets you egg-cited all you need to do is order the number of eggs you would like to be delivered by March 25th. and costs are as follows: 30 eggs for $20, 50 eggs for $30 and 70 eggs for $40. If you would like the Easter Bunny to deliver it will be an additional $10. The response from the community has been positive and some local businesses have pur chased eggs to be deliv ered to needy families. The Spring Hill Neigh bors Group state they will exceed their goal of $500 and hopefully, double it. Donations have also been received from Ken Zarrillo with Family Car Wash, Cat Ceparano with Ceparanos Pizza, Colleen Algeo Kasperek who is running for State Rep resentative, District 35, Jim Cutlip and Corrinne Camoin Foti have all made donations to deliver close to 300 eggs to needy families. So lets get on the egg-train and help make Easter a memorable one for all. Egg my Yard will benet Crescent Community Clinic Floridas conquistadors, pirates and shipwrecks, BY HERNANDO SUN STAFF During the Age of Sail, there was only one way to travel across the oceans by ship. The Spanish had dominion over vast territo ries that produced im mense wealth in the form of gold and silver. The relatively uncharted Carib bean and Gulf of Mexico, along with the unknown nature of weather systems particularly hurricanes and the ever-present threat of pirates, made sailing around Florida very dan gerous. Hundreds of ships, some laden with treasure, sank along the Florida coast and in the Carib started almost immedi ately and continue to this day centuries after the ships went to the bottom of the sea. The Tampa Bay History Center, located on down town Tampa's Riverwalk, recently launched its newest gallery experi ence "Treasure Seekers: Conquistadors, Pirates and Shipwrecks. Featuring a 60-foot, 18th-century pirate ship as its center piece, the new, permanent addition to the History Center introduces visitors to explorers who landed in "La Florida" more than 500 years ago, as well as little-known pirates like "Calico" Jack Rackham and Anne Bonny, who prowled Florida's coasts in the 1700s. The new gallery also explores the science and technology of shipwreck recovery, showing how centuries-old vessels are recovered from the ocean The 8,500-square-foot addition includes the Touchton Map Library and Florida Center for Carto graphic Education (TML/ FCCE), a partnership with the University of South Florida that will feature thousands of Florida maps and ephemera dating back to the 15th century through today. "We're telling a Florida story," said History Center President and CEO C.J. Roberts. "Conquistadors, pirates and privateers, shipwreck recovery many of these things were happening not just in the Tampa Bay area, but across the state." Visitors can learn about Florida's maritime history via the latest in museum technology, including an immersive, choose-yourown-adventure theater experience, and a celestial ellipse on the gallery ceil ing showing how sailors used the stars to traverse unknown oceans. The new gallery also features a world-class collection of maritime artifacts-some nearly 400 years old -including nav igational tools, jewelry, coins, pottery and other of Florida's coasts dating back to the 1600s. The Tampa Bay History of permanent exhibits explore illustrating the stories and personali ties from Floridas past. For more information, call (813) 228.0097 or visit TampaBayHistoryCenter. Org.

Deer humans, wil yu pleez com to the sheltr and see us we wud lov yu to adopt us we want to every huoman needs a cuddly Come and see us at Please help Willow by sharing her story if you cant help her by adopting. Willow (10314211) is a young blue terrier, approx. 50 lbs. She has been at the shelter for a few weeks now. She is getting very unhappy in her kennel, and therefore does not show well to many potential adopters. She is a dierent girl outside! Look at how calm and nice she is, just sitting in the sun. If only e right person would come along who recognizes how stressful it is for a dog to sit in a small kennel 24/7, getting out about twice a week when its playtime for about 20 minutes! It is no life! Willow is looking for her savior NOW could it be you? Willow is a sweet dog, but probably would do best as an only animal in the home, but if there are other dogs in the home a meet and greet is highly encouraged. Come and meet this beauty at Hernando County Animal Services, 19450 Oliver St, Brooksville, FL Love, Hitori solution on page 17 Pearl (10314344) is the kind of dog many people are looking for. Medium size, friendly, playful but not hyper, knows sit and gives paw, likes to go for walks, seems to get along with other dogs Come and get to know her, she would love to nd a forever home. Hernando Coun ty Animal Services, 19450 Oliver Street Brooksville Sierra. a.k.a. Ginger (1034246) has a beautiful reddish/ tan coat. She is very lovable and has a playful, almost puppy-ish side. She enjoys playing ball, just sitting next to her person and rolling in the grass. She is ok with some dogs but not all, so a meet and greet is highly recommended if there are other dogs in the home. Hernando County Animal Services, 19450 Olliver St, Brooksville, FL ID#10314401, is guy is Cheeto and he is amazing! If you are looking for a sweet and aectionate cat than this is your boy. He likes to ride on your back as you can see! And he seems to like other cats! Come meet Cheeto tomorrow when the shelter reopens! Hernando Animal Services,19450 Oliver St. Brooksville, FL 352-796-5062 is is Zoey and she needs a home! Such a sweet girl that seems to be non reactive to other dogs. Shes petite in size and honestly her pictures dont do her justice! 10314484 Hernando An imal Services,19450 Oliver St. Brooksville, FL 352-796-5062 RIGHT: To some this is just another homeless shelter dog who has been failed by the community. For the volunteers and sta at Hernando Ani mal Services Beau is so much more! Beau and his sister are victims of selsh backyard breeders! ey both came to the shelter as strays which was probably the best thing that could have happened to them. Beaus sister was adopted within days of arriving unfortunately Beau hasnt been that lucky. Beau does not show well in his kennel and he is a young boy with some energy so being stuck in a kennel day aer day doesnt help him. Once into the play yard he does like to run and play but most of all he likes the attention of a human. He is very lovable and sweet and very eager to please. He loves squeaky toys and knows some basic commands. He was adopted a few weeks ago but returned due to not being able to be contained. Beau is NOT a dog that wants to sit in a yard all day by himself......he wants to be with his family or person!

See SOFTBALL, Page 12 Coach Craig Swartout pep talk with the team. The Eagles, however, came up just short to the Seahawks, losing 6-5 in a thrilling contest. Springstead coach Craig Swartout pointed out that the benefits of play ing in the tournament was the opportunity to see some different teams and wasnt disappointed with the effort given in the championship final. When you play in tournaments like the Leopard Slam, one of the things you get to enjoy is seeing different teams, Swartout said. We enjoy it also be cause its close. We were probably fully extended in that last game. It had been a long weekend. It was really hot and by the time we played our last game, it was really cold. Im disappointed that we lost, but definitely not disappointed with the effort. Its no secret that Springstead has lofty ex pectations heading into the second half of the season coming off spring break, as the Eagles begin to make their push towards districts and the state playoffs. Spring stead is expected to be one of the teams vying for the Class 6A state championship once the postseason begins. The Leopard Slam in regards to providing some solid competition from around the area. I definitely think that this tournament was good for us, Swartout said. We got to play some teams we wouldnt get to see in our district. Youre not going to win every game you play in. Thats always got to be your goal is to win a state championship. Id like to think so, but theres a lot of variables that play into it later down the road. Plenty of players were able to play well in the Leopard Slam Tourna ment for Springstead, including Paige Pfent. Pfent was able to go 10of-10 in the tournament with two home runs, according to Swartout. Pitchers Kayla Cruz and Mariah Galhouse pitched exceptionally for the Eagles. Paige (Pfent) was 10for-10 in the tournament with a couple home runs, so she was outstanding, Swartout added. Our pitchers played really well and pitched well. It was exciting to see how these girls embrace to play at this level. Also taking part in the Leopard Slam Tournament SOFTBALL

Theyre critical in the workplace, airports and underground railway systems to convey work ers or travelers quickly destinations And theyre becoming more and more commonplace in residenc es for convenience or for people who are unable to climb stairs. Yet, elevators have barely evolved since in 1857. One walks in; presses a button to go up or down and then you get and getting out, we still experience that awkward moment. You know the moment you stare at the numbers change until thing but have to talk to the people sharing the lift with you. Things are chang ing though. While safe operation of an elevator is of top priority, esthet ics are now an important consideration in elevator interiors and Nature Coast Installation Services (NCIS) is on track to make your elevator ride a more exciting visual journey. In January 2017, Wade Sutherlin and his wife, Amanda, of Spring Hill, decided to branch out on their own and launched NCIS Elevator. A talented carpenter, Wade has been in the elevator cab industry for many years customizing elevator interiors in prop erties from public housing buildings in Boca Raton, condominium high rises, multi-million dollar residences in Miami and Orlando, new construction projects, hospitals, med ical research facilities, assisted living facilities and military bases. It took me 5 years, working alongside a earn my elevator techni cian competency license, he said, and I have to attend workshops and take classes regularly to keep up-to-date with the very stringent rules regarding the operation, mainte nance and refurbishment of elevators. Amanda was work ing a full-time job until Dec, 2017, but is now actively involved with the business. Shes also a real estate investor Im plugging myself in more and more to assist him like keeping his calendar straight, following up on calls, researching products, also the more mundane things like invoicing, account ing and learning elevator language, she said. Amanda also accom panies Wade on jobs with him and works alongside him. You know, pass me that tool or this tool whatever I can do to help him, she said. The couple is currently working out of their home and the garage is their workshop. Not so unusual, Microsoft and Apple both started up in a garage, laughed Amanda. NCISs primary focus is specializing in the manufacture and install of high-quality, custom-built elevator cabs and they have a quite considerable list of clients, so much so they are actively looking for a business property. Wade stated that from getting an initial enquiry about redesigning a cab interior can take up to 4 to 6 weeks. I start with a pre-con struction meeting with what design elements theyre looking for, he said. Each job is unique and it could be just one small elevator in a home or as many as four or building or hospital, he said.

It is now possible to earn virtual currency by mining for the virtual currency. Mining means that you provide computing capacity someone to fake a transac tion for a cryptocurrency. The virtual currency that you earn has real value and can be exchanged for real currency. This means that these spare computers can be used to earn money. The costs are electricity and potential wear and tear on the hardware. The earning of money has changed the unauthorized use of excess computing power from a faux pas to a crime. Misusing computing resources can be consid ered a serious crime as the Information Technology manager for the Florida Department of Citrus, Matthew McDermott found out. He was an extreme example of using excess computing power and he also purchased equipment to increase his ability to earn money mining virtual currency. According to FDLE The investigation was launched after FDLE agents received a complaint from the Citrus tor General. The complaint followed an audit of P-Card (purchasing card) activity that found McDermott had made more than $22,000 in purchases between July 2017 and December 2017. Among those purchases were 24 computer graphics cards known as Graphic Processing Units (GPUs). In addition, the IG noted that utility bills for the agency had increased by 41 percent between October 2017 and January 2017. The increase amounted to nearly $825.00. GPUs are very good at mining virtual currency and it would appear that he purchased the GPUs to en hance his mining operation. He did not steal the equipment, but he misused it, most likely for his own virtual currency with the equipment and using the electricity of the Florida Department of Citrus.

Its always my goal to deliver One client of NCIS is The Lani Kai Island Resort in Fort Myers.

One of the more important forms that Im constantly advising health care profes sionals to use is in-time or real-time communication. For example: Mr. Jones is admitted into a hospital. One of the worst things we can tell him on Wednesday is, On Friday, you are scheduled for 1 p.m., to go downstairs to radiology for some testing. What you have just now created is two full days of higher levels of anxiety and confusion for this man. He will more than likely now be worried probably to the point of obsession that theres somewhere important that he needs to be. Instead, what needs to be said to Mr. Jones, on Friday around noontime, is, Mr. Jones, I will be back in about 45 minutes so we can go downstairs to radiology for some testing. (Yes, always use that we word, so he will be assured that you or someone else will be doing this together with him, as a team.) Honestly, I had to learn this the hard way. I continu ously found myself wasting time, and causing turmoil for myself and my dad who was living with Alzheimers disease. I would inform him that he had a doctors appointment coming up on Monday, leaving him in a state of confusion for the entire weekend. Then, when Monday arrived, it would take everything I had to convince him that he truly needed to go. During the early stages of dementia, this may not be too big of a problem; but as dementia progresses, its important to realize that patients short-term memory will decline. We need to learn to adapt with them and learn proper ways to com municate, without producing high levels of anxiety. I also learned the im portance of making sure (with sighted patients, of course) you are visual when speaking. a sentence while I had my back turned, walking out of the room, only to realize what I had just done, then having to step back in, and repeat what I had just said to him, this time face-toface. I always had to make certain he clearly understood me. Visual contact and face-toface are must! We as healthcare pro fessionals must remember that in a setting such as a hospital, no patients have been admitted because of their dementia. Some other ailment has brought them into this situation, in which case their cognitive abilities will only be more heavily impaired. need to take a few extra steps. We must make sure we limit those dementia patients confusion and keep them safe. Residential solar power does not make sense for many Floridians BY KURT M. GLACY SPECIAL TO HERNANDO SUN going solar have been overcome in Florida. However, it remains a mystery to many why the Sunshine State has rela tively few homes with so lar panels so far. The truth is that the market driver for going solar is primari ly the price of power from utility companies, not the cost of the equipment and of the best panels have been Made in America for many years). In compari son to other states, Florida has relatively cheap rates for electricity. In California, Arizo na, and Massachusetts, for example, the cost of electricity often makes it a no-brainer for going by having solar on your home is easy to justify in those states because the investment cost is less than the related power bills both in the near-term and long-term. With lower power rates like we have in Florida, people need to be very careful about about solar because the numbers may not make sense right away. People are commonly told by telemarketers and salespeople that they will save money imme diately, and that they can go solar for free or at least for less than they are currently paying for power. The problem is that the truth often turns sales presentation. If you are thinking about going solar, you need to protect yourself by learning three facts: First, not everyone cent federal tax credit. This is a non-refundable tax credit which means that your federal tax lia bility must be greater than the tax credit. years to claim the total credit, but that is often too late for people relying on the entire amount in order to keep their solar payments low. In a recent panel discussion about residential solar power, a local tax preparer shared that a number of her cus tomers had been told they would get the full 30 per cent right away. She said their faces fell when they realized that they were Kurt Glacy, Solar Energy Consultant years of higher payments and interest because they would not get the credit they were expecting. Second, net metering between the various utility companies. Building an over-sized solar system may actually cost you more because what you earn back can be less than the cost of the system. Rather than using solar to try to neutralize your current electric bill right away, it usually makes sense to make your home sible, and then building a new usage levels. A good rule of thumb for solar is to reduce then produce. In terms of net-metering, it is import ant to consider ways to pull less energy from the grid both during the day and at night. By incor porating battery storage systems with solar power production, you can cap italize on the energy that you produce during the day by using that energy after the sun goes down. Your power can also be available when the grid is down due to storms or other technical failures. Finally, not all solar in stallations and equipment are the same. When people dont really understand how solar works, they tend to focus only on price internet. When shopping for an excellent solar power system, look to both the quality of the installa tion and the quality of the components. Excellent equipment installed poorly may not be any better than low er-quality equipment installed well. If not done properly, solar can be a liability rather than an asset because of the risk to your property and a barrier to the sale of your home later on. Solar power is a good idea for many Floridians, but there is less room for here than in other states. If you are going to go solar, then get the facts before signing a contract. Even if solar isnt right for you, you can still make a dif ference in your power bill by changing some habits and by making your home something is better than doing nothing. Kurt Glacy is a Spring Hill resident, and a Solar Energy Consultant for Erus Energy. He has had solar power systems on his own homes for the last 10 years, and frequently presents about solar to nity groups, and individu als. He also posts informa tion videos and solar tips on the Spring Hill Solar page on Facebook. Kurt is an active member in the Greater Hernando County Chamber of Commerce.

Even though I didnt kill a turkey that day, or even come remotely close, I still remember that very brisk morning hunt like it happened yesterday. I continued turkey hunt ing very sporadically with no success, while reading everything I could on the subject and asking every old timer for tips and tac tics to put me over the top. one of the greatest trophies that I have ever killed, despite the fact he was just a short-bearded jake. But, as with all game, the hunt is what makes the trophy, and this hunt was a very memorable one because I knew I had earned it. I was sixteen by the time I hunted that jake and he did everything a turkey is supposed to do as he gobbled, strutted, and drummed while walking into range. He looked like a Volkswagen Beetle coming through the woods. I was obviously pretty excited after I squeezed the trigger and as I reached down and smoothed those iridescent feathers, I admit, I shed a tear. Id lost my grand Toby Benoit is a best selling novelist and pro fessional outdoorsman experience guiding and all across America. Toby is a renowned archer and turkey hunting expert who manufactures custom game calls and is a regular judge at NWTF sanctioned turkey calling events across the Southeast. GREAT OUTDOORS Real or Urban Landscape Myths? daddy just that previous Summer. Here we are many years and many turkey hunting lessons later and I still eat, sleep, breathe, and drink turkey hunting. I hear turkeys gobble in my head immediately after I hear a crow caw in the middle of March in the middle of downtown Brooksville. I dont believe I am the most I know, even though my family cannot make the same statement about me. They understand though, knowing that Im likely to miss a few family events, holidays, parties, and special occasions during turkey season. Im most likely going to miss church on an April Sunday morning, and Im most certainly guaranteed a discussion with certain family members regarding my absenteeism during the nitely no saint, and I am by no means perfect. but, I AM turkey hunting! Ive hunted the East ern, Merriams and Rio Grande wild turkeys all over North America and even spent a long week in Northern Mexico trying to rearrange the beak on a Goulds gobbler. But, none of the various subspecies get my heart pumping anywhere nearly as much as our Florida Osceola wild turkeys. They are by far the hardest turkeys to hunt and most apt to send you home scratching your head in bewilderment. If any of you would like to get out an give old Mis ter Osceola a try, youre welcome to reach out to me at Toby@HernandoSun. com if you need any info on where to go and how to get it done! God bless and good hunting! Meghan Bieberle with a handsome Osceola gobbler! A ball of Spanish moss. Spanish Moss used as a decorative hanging basket. Pho tos by J..E. Davis.JPG BY JIM E. DAVIS SPECIAL TO HERNANDO SUN Urban legends in the landscape abound. In ex tension and plant clinics, we hear them all. Myth #1: The invasive Formosan termite can eat concrete. Fact: If that were true, then I think we would be in a state of emergency in all of Florida. The fact is that no termite can eat or digest concrete. Ter mites only eat cellulose; however, termitescan gain e ntry through the tiniest of cracks in concrete and other materials. The For mosan or Super Termite can be a serious threat to homes. They are a major problem in the panhandle and have been identi Counties. Another similar urban legend is that some say homes made up of a concrete foundation are exempt from subterranean termites. Of course, this is another myth. Any small crack found in the slab or foundation can be an entry point for termites. Contact a pest control company if you want to begin termite protection. If you collect insects that you think are termites, bring them to our UF/ IFAS Extension Hernan Myth #2 Spanish moss and Ball Moss suck the nutrients out of plants and kill them. Fact: This is one of the most common urban legends out there. I have heard this growing up in Florida all of my life. Sci ence will tell you that this is not true. Spanish moss or Tillandsia usneoides is a native plant species. This plant has been here long before European contact to the new world. Spanish moss is not a true moss, but actually a bromeliad. An example of another bromeliad is your com mon, delicious pineapple. Spanish moss belong to a group of plants that are called epiphytes. Epiphytes are air plants. They collect water and nutrients from small permeable scales. They are not parasitic plants at all. Spanish moss is an invaluable native plant. It is home to many insects and other arthro pods. Birds, such as the majestic swallow-tailed kite, use it for nesting. Several native species of bats and Floridas state wing, roost in Spanish moss. So, you can see how this plant has many Spanish moss also played a role in human history. Native Americans used Spanish moss for bedding and to soak up unwanted liquids while cooking. In the early and mid 1900s, Spanish moss was used in automobile cushions and mattresses. My grandparents collect ed Spanish moss from trees and brought it to Tampa for processing. Ball moss or Tilland sia recurvata is another epiphyte. If you see a lot of ball moss on a dying tree, then something else is causing its decline. Myth #3 Lovebugs were genetically created by The University of Florida to kill mosqui toes. Fact: Only if this were true! I think a Flori da State Seminole fan thought this up. Just kidding! The fact is that there are actually a native spe cies and invasive species of lovebug. The invasive species arrived in the 1920s in southern Loui siana and has then spread to other states. There are two outbreaks. The while the second occurs in August-September. They can be a nuisance to drivers, congregating near highways and gas stations. The fatty tissue from the lovebugs can removed within two days. Lovebug larvae break down decomposing veg etation, which provides nutrients to many plants. Adults are short lived, feeding on nectar. Due to the large numbers during outbreaks, using insecticides is impracti cal. UF/IFAS Extension in Hernando County pro vides solutions for your life.

vigor for more than 2,000 years. The honor and glory associated with the original Palm Sundays events started as a Christmas story 33 years earlier (although true believers might say it started before the beginning of time). The story started so well that when the lovable child was born in dire circumstances a stable where various animals milled about adoring shepherds from kings from afar, bringing gold and other expensive gifts, came to visit. By age 12 that preco cious child could discuss scripture with scholars in the synagogue and by 30 he had become internationally famous as a teacher. In addition, the middle-class son of a car penter had been credited with such spectacular feats as feeding thousands with a few loaves of bread healing some who were blind or terminally ill by a touch or merely a spoken word, or even with resusi tating those who were thought to be dead. Many pinned on the young man (whose very name, Jesus, means Sav ior or Salvation) their hopes for a liberator of the Jewish people whose land was under occupation by the Romans. So thousands waving palm fronds and strewing them in his path during a parade through the streets of the Jewish capital city of Jerusalem gathered to hail him. Less than a week later, many of that same cheer ing crowd were calling for Jesus to be hung on a cross because some lead ers charged him as a fraud he said he was God and was destined to be king of the whole world which he had created and a threat to the status quo. So for many, Palm Sunday is seen as shortlived glory for Jesus Christ, the outspoken Nazarene do-gooder whose end, though tragic, was to be expected and soon forgot ten. But for followers of Jesus, who now include 78 percent of the U.S. population and number 2.1 billion around the world, the day leads to the climax of what truly is a gripping and powerful love story. What could be more tender and caring than that familiar Bible verse in John 3:16: for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son so that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life? That is the truth behind the events of Holy Week (some call it Passion Week). But neither the rection of the one called Emanuel (God with us) was to be the end of his story or the cause we know as Christianity. Jesus said he would come again, this time, Christians believe, to reign. Not only Christians but most of the worlds 1.5 bil lion Muslims believe he will return they say as the forerunner to announce the coming of Allah himself. Many Jews also are looking for the return of a forerunner to announce the coming of the Messi ah. It is the prophet Elijah for whom an ajar door, an empty chair and a glass of wine await at the annual Seder dinner during the upcoming Passover obser vance. So the question Jesus asked remains: But what about you? Who do you say I am? (For 37 of his 48 years as a reporter, Adon Taft was the award-winning religion editor for The Miami Herald.

OPINION March 2329, 2018 hernandosun.com HERNANDO SUN 19 Woke to elites preaching virtue signals of the new religion Traditional Realist WILLIAM F. HOLLAND T he progressive PC agenda of one world government, social justice, global warm ing, non-judgment, gender prolifer ation, no borders, minority rights, white privilege, and of the USAs exploitation of the worlds people have become the underpinnings of the new religion of the elites. These smuggers have become preachers to their wannabees to woke( awakened) by becoming aware of the superiority of virtue signals of the progressive religion. The elites reject the traditional moral values and want to establish this new uto pian, manmade religion, excuse me, humankind religion. The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, corrected a young female who said, mankind. He smugly and pompously remind ed her the virtue signal should be people kind. The young audience applauded his marvelous religious knowledge and wisdom. He is one of the high priests of the new progressive religion being elected as the leader of a major western na tion. After this statement, Trudeau back and his spokesperson related he was only joking. Everyone in the audience knew what he said was meant to be followed. Ex president Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other European Union leaders are important con tributors and disciples of the new wave religion, worshiping earth and the genius of man, excuse me again, and people kind. These elite ge niuses determine the belief system of this utopian vision. Evil does not exist in this world view. People in this worldview are supposedly equal. The non-privi leged minority people are victims of their circumstances. These individuals should not be punished for their crimes but should be given special privileges like advancement, money and forgiveness for their negative actions. These misdeeds were ultimately caused by social injustices of the past. Rich, white, special privileged people perpetuat ed all of these injustices. Ironically it is these same white, elite people and a few of color, which have cre ated this new religion. The elites revelation of a one-world-govern ment with them being the all-know higher spiritual life. These virtuous social-justice advocates are the same ones that created this progressive religion to right their own past elite sins. Somehow, by forming a one trolled government the wrongs of the past will vanish and humans will rise to the status of mini gods. Science will provide the answers to prevent natural disasters by changing the climate throughout the world. These disciples of science will erase evil and ignorance and everyone will be on an equal plain of knowledge, motivation and love. The use of political correct ness will help people censor any thoughts of racist, ethnic or Chris tian values. This will promote the creation of a more perfect world.

Emilio Sonny Vergara Chairman http://www.hernandoarts. org/ Prayer is least, most we can do Back when I was employed in the Garden Center of a big store of a big chain, which I now call Exwork, I wanted to replace the words Sales Associate on my badge with the word APE. I asked about it many times over the years, and I was always told no. The reason I wanted APE on my badge, which stands or All Purpose Employee, is because management periodically got hotly confused about what workers should do during their shifts and wanted everyone to be a cashier, a mixer of paint, a cutter of cloth, an issuer of PLE (Powered Lifting Equip ment: forklift, scissor-lift, etc.) operator, and to answer every ringing phone. It didnt work, because each department was its own world, and workers were often swamped enough by the demands of just one four-foot side-counter to be bothered with other areas. Oh, I was all for itanything to keep me from loading bags of dirt into peoples trunks. licenses, learned the confusion about cutting cloth, and OJTed enough to at least mix paint for the landscape logs and concrete blocks we used for hanging signs in the Yard (the area of the parking lot where we displayed mulch and dirt and such). I even had numbers for the register, which I actually did for a whileand thats another story. But I never could do the other things. I meant to, but when I was passing Sport ing, Fabrics, Hardware, and their ringing phones, I wasnt just strolling by. I was on a mission for my department and couldnt stop, as nor could other workers in other departments. Late in my employment, when again Exwork was trying to make do with a skeleton crew, I volunteered to be an All Purpose Employee. My stipulation was that I had to be reassigned from Garden, preferably to a newly invented department called APE. Otherwise I would need a walkie-talkie, so when I was heading back from the hooks for apegboard display of mower accessories but stopped to spend ten minutes license, twenty minutes cutting fabric, and forty minutes be able to call my Dephead (department headmanager) to say I would be late. I also insisted my realm extend to the rest of the store, including Grocery. (One of my fondest memories from years and years ago is helping a customer them, because I didnt know that side, but we both had fun looking.) And I wanted to help every customer who was just standing there waiting to be helped, in photo, jewelry, bikes, shoes, and electronics. I desired to become familiar with all departments so I could answer every phone. I also suggested that if they thought the badge too simian, we could add dots: A.P.E. But they still said no. So I stayed in Garden, tore my gristle with loads, and avoided other departments as best I could. Eventually I made my own APE badge at home, and I plan to wear it on Halloween, when I dress up as an ex-loader, complete with yellow safety vest, tool pouch, gloves, and the straw hat I wore when working outside.

P rayer is the least and the most we can do Recently, my wife Cheryl was talking about the need to increase her prayer time and praying is very important in our spiritual life. In the middle of our conversation, she said, we should turn our cares into prayers and that instantly caught my attention. I love catchy phrases and told her that I just might borrow that slo gan! We all have worries and cares but for some strange reason, many times we do not consider praying as our highest priority. In fact, for most of us, its usually a last resort. Similar to prayer, Im reminded of glass cases and reserved for emer gency use only. Sadly, we often forget what a great price God has paid in order that we might have the privilege and opportunity to communicate with Him. Its been said that prayer is the least we can do and yet the most we can do. When Adam and Eve sinned in the garden, the bridge of intimacy was severed between God and mankind and forgiveness became a temporary covering instead of a permanent removal. This infection of sin not only prevented our Cre ator from indwelling the heart of the individual but the restoration of our relationship was also not possible until Jesus went to the and resurrection allow us to see t at God loved us and wanted to be with us so much that He sent His Son as a ransom for our soul. The blood of Christ was the only payment that could redeem us. So today, instead of going to a priest and having them to inter cede and slaughter an animal for our forgiveness, we can approach Jesus Christ directly and invite Him into our life as our personal Savior and Lord. Prayer is the deliberate act of communicating with God. We can talk with Him while we are doing our daily work and if we need to be quiet we can concentrate and know that He understands us and knows our thoughts. Prayer has been described as simply pouring out our conscience to God about our desires, needs, burdens, and everything that is important to us. Whatever is weighing heavily upon you today is causing anxiety and worry but there is encour aging news! God has provided a wonderful opportunity to cast our cares on Him. A huge aspect of faith is believing that He is con cerned with our fears and troubles and that He desires to intervene. Consider writing down these cir cumstances and petitions and trust Him with all of your heart that He is going to take care of them. Billy Graham once said, This should be the declaration of every follower of Jesus Christ. No matter how dark and hopeless a situation might seem, never stop praying. When we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of God. Prayer may sound easy but anyone that has attempted to approach His throne on a regular basis will tell you its one of the most challenging undertakings of the Christian life. There are certain steps to take in order for prayer to become a serious part of our journey and it may sound A P E Dear Hernando Sun Editor and Readers: I have three points I want to make: 1. It appears that the public schools in Hernando County did not participate in the National School Walkout. I thank the school board, principals, and teachers for this. 2. I told my children that their job was to go to school to learn, not to be used as political pawns. I wanted them to know the basics so that they could develop to their full potential. School ing is compulsory paid for by taxpayer dollars. We as parents expect our taxpayer monies will be well spent to teach our children. Many cannot home schooling and thus trapped in the public school system. I resent the fact that taxpayer money and school time is wasted like this. This shows how corrupt many of our school systems have become. (Diverting school funds for busing people to rallies, getting students to march for a political stand, and indoctrinating students to one political leaning over the other.) 3. Age limits: Tony Cox of NPR news stated: Under most laws, young people are recognized as adults at age 18. But emerging science about brain development suggests that most people dont reach full maturity until the age 25. Does this mean that we should wait until 25 to allow adults to do adult things: Contract, vote, sue or be sued, open a bank account in your own name, serve on a jury, get a tattoo, buy cigarettes and tobacco, buy and drink alcohol in a bar, possess and purchase guns, drive a car, and so much more? My parents only had an 8th-grade education, yet they were successful indi viduals. At the end of their schooling they could handle an honest hours work for an honest dollar, knew how to treat people, and knew that they were responsible for their actions. They had to make judg ment calls. They used their book knowledge and applied it. However, their learning did not stop there. My father moved houses, which was a constant chal lenge. He used his knowledge and skills that he learned from school and from doing. He was no longer sheltered and had to make decisions.Now, students are to graduate after 12 years of education. Some start college, and yet need remedial courses for what they should have mastered in school. They cannot think out of the box. They do not know how to give an honest days work for an honest days pay and do not have a good work ethic. Some continue with junior college, college, and even higher education yet still cannot function in our society. So what is the ap propriate age to allow one to do things. If an individual can sign up for military duty and become a good soldier, why cant he/she purchase a gun? If this cant be done, then the age for all activity should be raised to 26 when the children are no longer covered under the parents health care plan. Perhaps they should be children forever. Caroline Zoes Brooksville ...On Art in the Park has record breaking attendance participate in this march to paradise. Being woke to these new virtues and following them will take humankind to the heights of being equal to god. Their god kind will prevail. Heaven on earth is obtainable as long as we follow our science inspired wise man into the promise land. Only by leaving the perverted traditional values behind, all the followers need to study the virtue signals of the elite wise men to be inspired soldiers in this revolutionary reli gion. This is the woke phase of the enlightenment and bliss for all humans.
