Even during the tumult of the aftermath of the civil war when the area saw many murders and there was tremendous unrest, people moved to the area because of its rich soil and mild climate.

Hernando is an excellent place to grow oranges, tangerines, watermelon, corn, blue berries, and many more fruits and vegetables. There are a number of farms in the area u-pick option.

By LISA MACNEIL HERNANDO SUN STAFF Commissioner Steve Champion was absent from the March 27, 2018 regular meeting, when the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) discussed building a recreational area at the Weeki Wachee Preserve, on Shoal Line Boulevard just east of Hernando Beach. No vote was held on March 27th, and Champion asked for this discussion to be put on the April 10, 2018 agenda. The commision voted 4-1 to proceed with discussions with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) to obtain land management and plan the recreation area. The building of the recreational area is de pendent on a land-swap agreement with SWFW MD. Utilities Director Gordon Onderdonk told the board that SWF WMD needs to know what kind of activities will be pursued before they can begin a landswap discussion with the county. At present, the only activity pro hibited is swimming, so the only addition to the Weeki Wachee Preserve will be a beach area and parking. Minimal environmental impact is expected to build park ing areas. Still in the discussion phase, the recreation area is being considered to accommodate more tourism. Champion added that the recreation BY LLOYD DUNKELBERGER NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA TALLAHASSEE --Wrap ping up work from the 2018 legislative session, Gov. Rick Scott on Friday signed 17 bills and vetoed one measure, which he said could muddle underground water system. The most contentious leg islation was a bill (HB 1149) that would have allowed chemically treated, recycled water to be pumped into the states underground aquifers. Bill supporters said it would help increase the states drink ing-water supply, while critics said it could lead to aquifer contamination. In his veto message, Scott said he thoroughly reviewed the bill, which was spon sored by Rep. Bobby Payne, R-Palatka, and he was not convinced that this legislation will not muddle Floridas pro tection of our aquifers. The Department of En vironmental Protection will remain focused on protecting Floridas water resources and will continue to safeguard our aquifers under existing laws, Scott wrote. Florida has stringent water quality standards, and we are going to keep it that way. Scott said there were other worthwhile provisions in the bill but they did not outweigh his concerns about aquifer protection. He urged lawmakers to con sider enacting those proposals in future sessions, including a plan for implementing a major water project, known as the C-51 Reservoir, near Lake Okeechobee. Although this project is still in progress and not yet in use, local communities should have the ability to use the completed reservoir to bolster their water supply, as was the original intent of the project, Scott wrote. Scott also praised anoth er provision in the bill that would have created a blue star program aimed at en couraging increased monitor ing and maintenance of waste water systems by utilities. Among the bills signed by Scott was a measure (HB 55) that will allow people buying guns to use credit cards to pay for background checks. They have paid with person al checks, money orders or cashiers checks. Scott signed another bill (HB 495) aimed at increasing the availability of comput er-science courses, including coding courses, in middle and high schools. Teachers who science and teach the courses can earn up to $1,000 in annu al bonuses. Scott endorsed another bill (HB 523) that would make it a third-degree felony to trespass on airport property where properly placed signs warn With Fridays action, Scott has dealt with the 195 bills passed by the Legislature, which ended its annual ses sion on March 11. He signed 193 bills and vetoed two. The other bill rejected by Scott was a local bill (HB 1113) that would have ex panded the governing board of the Palm Beach County Housing Authority. The two bills vetoed by Scott is the lowest total of rejected legislation by the governor since the 2014 session, when Scott vetoed only one bill, which would have raised the speed limit on restricted-access highways. By HERNANDO SUN STAFF As space permits, we will continue to publish the bills that Gov. Scott has signed from the last legislative session.

Potential Park Site Tower Site Parcel Cofer Road Parcel Recycling Center Parcel Parcels being considered to trade for Weeki Wachee Preserve park site: Recycling Center parcel near Osowaw and Spring Hill Dr., the Hernando Beach Water Tower Parcel and a parcel off of Cofer Rd and Shoal Line. Shoal Line Blvd Osowaw Blvd Spring Hill Dr area is a just small part of the preserve, and acknowl edged the concerns that have been raised so far, threats to wildlife, and litter problems. I get all that, Cham pion said. But I think we can work through that to get this done. Commissioner John Allocco is not opposed to going forward with the land swap with SWFW MD, however, he cited recent budget problems, and suggested the build ing project be revisited when those are resolved. He also posed several questions regarding the lakes, such as insurance being obtainable due to the 60-foot depth, and and maintaining bacterial levels. I just dont want budget. Road improvement along Shoal Line Bou levard will be necessary to prevent congestion. Champion said that would fund, which is overcap italized right now, so that portion of the plan is covered. The only money that would come from the General fund would be operation of the park, which is 3-4 years away. Champion spoke of previous discussions about overcrowding of the Weeki Wachee River, If we dont start now, well never get it done This river. Holcomb, also concerned about budget issues and a desire to maintain conser public should have better access to the preserve, which is currently open once or twice per month. Originally opposed to obtaining the land from SWFWMD, Holcomb said, I dont think SWF WMD should be man aging this land. I think we should I think we could do a better job. In order to consider a land trade, appraisals for three parcels will be com pleted. The total cost for the Cofer Road and Tower site appraisals is estimat ed at $6,000. The Solid Waste Department will pay for the third appraisal needed for the Recycling Convenience Center, estimated at $3,000. Commercial Way

The choices of Winsor and Berger for the federal judgeships appear to align Trump to make the federal judiciary more conserva tive. Berger, who was a pros ecutor in St. Johns County for almost eight years before working for Bush, pointed in her Florida Supreme Court application to adherence to judicial restraint --a common theme in conservative legal circles. I respect the legislative process and am committed to the principles of judicial restraint, she wrote at the time. I will bring to the bench self-control, integri ty, respect, wisdom, good common sense. I can be trusted to follow the law and make just and timely rulings. Berger and Winsor also have moderated panel discussions in recent years at Florida meetings of The Federalist Society, among conservatives. Win sor last year moderated a discussion titled Combat ing Federal Overreach, according to video posted on The Federalist Society website. Judges in the feder al Northern District of Florida hear cases from a region that includes Gainesville, Tallahassee, Panama City and Pensac ola. The Middle District, meanwhile, covers a mas sive area, stretching from Fort Myers to Jacksonville and including Orlando and Tampa. Along with saying he will nominate Berger and Winsor for the district judgeships, Trump on Tuesday also announced selecting Britt C. Grant to serve on the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which hears cases from Florida. Grant is a justice on the Georgia Supreme Court.

By LISA MACNEIL HERNANDO SUN STAFF On Friday, April 6, 2018, Congressman Dan iel Webster spoke about recent legislative changes following lunch at the Southern Hills Plantation clubhouse. The Chamber of Commerce event was sponsored by the Suncoast CPA Group, and attended by area business leaders and residents. Webster provided updates regard ing tax reform, infrastruc ture and the Middle East. According to Webster, 96 percent of Americans will see a reduction in their taxes, courtesy of the Tax Reduction and Jobs Act (Public Law 115-97). The new 2018 tax form will not be an actual post card, but its expected to be equivalent in size. The tax responsibility for large corporations, which was between 32-35 percent, will also be re duced to a maximum rate of 21%. Other tedious tax practices, such as depre ciating assets such as vehi cles and equipment each year has been eliminated. The Congressman went on to say that hes looking forward to working on an infrastructure bill. In Florida, we can be in a county that doesnt have Disney World, but we depend on people getting here for eco-tourism, the beaches ... all kinds of things that attract people. Webster also men tioned the importance of improved infrastructure when faced with a serious hurricane, and people would need to leave the state. Beyond the United States, Webster reported on the status of the war in the middle East. He ended with, I am very impressed with Secretary (James) Mattis. He has ...brought about the complete destruction of ISIS. (ISIS) didnt want to deal, they didnt want a compact or agreement or have an Islam state. Thats it. Period.

HB 7043 State Assumption of Federal Section 404 Dredge and Fill Permitting Authority Southern Hills development agreement requires further changes By LISA MACNEIL HERNANDO SUN STAFF During the March 19, 2018 City Council meeting, developers and attorneys for Southern Hills Plantation avoided a building moratorium order due to a lack of 3 of the Southern Hills development. Following this meeting, an amended development agreement was drafted to correct public hearing was held on April 2, 2018. The amended agree ment provides for the developer to install a booster pump station within the existing potable water system to improve the domestic Phases 3 and 3A-1 of the Southern Hills Plantation subdivision. However, the developer objects to the condition that a second loop-line will be installed upon of occupancy of the 400th home, or platting on uel, President of Coastal Engineering told the Brooksville city council that the language as it is written would require a line across the woods in an undeveloped phase (of Southern Hills). Public Works Director Richard Radacky said that it was the intention to have a trigger which would mandate the instal lation of the second water line. Radacky said if it were his decision, hed install the second line immediately, to prevent complete outages when the existing line breaks. There are currently less than 200 homes in the subdivision. City Attor ney Becky Vose explained that if the 400th home is not built, or phase 3-A-2 never gets platted, the secondary line never gets installed. The language is expect second public hearing. 'Spring Center' comp plan amendment moves forward By LISA MACNEIL HERNANDO SUN STAFF The comprehensive plan amendment for the 450 acre Spring Center de velopment was discussed again at the regular Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) meeting on April 10, 2018. Assistant Coun ty Administrator Ron Pi anta opened the discussion, reminding the board and those in attendance that the purpose of the discussion was for the board to con sider the amendment, the background information, and to determine wheth er or not to transmit the amendment to the states Department of Economic Opportunity. The board unanimously voted to transmit the amendment. Several area residents have been in contact with the commissioners as well as County Planner Cayce Dagenhart, concerned about their homes, many voicing concerns that theyll lose their proper ty to Eminent Domain. Chairman Steve Champion used the term fake news, that Eminent Domain does not apply to the homes bordering the intended city center. County Attorney Garth Coller added that its against the law for the county to act on behalf of a developer to take property from an owner. However, it is legal for the developer to negotiate sale of prop erty with an owner, but a property owner cannot be forced to sell. Dagenhart and Planner Omar De Pablo reviewed the maps of the 450-acre tract of land, bordering im mediately west and south of Explorer K-8, extending west to River Road and south to Running Oak Court. The eastern-most border will run adjacent to Jason Road and Greyn olds Avenue. The planned development district will include a central hub for retail and commercial are envisioned as well, The Town Center layout is also expected to include 3,000 new residences, consisting of single family homes and multi-family structures, with the highest density housing closest to the com mercial hub. The plan also includes a 20-acre park immediately west of the school, and expansion area for the school to the south. Several pocket parks are also planned throughout the area. erated several times that the zoning map shown is just an idea right now, to amend the future descrip tion in the Comprehensive Plan. Rezoning is not approved yet, and not the item up for the April 10th vote. All commissioners are in support of the proposed amendment, however most residents are opposed, the loss of greenspace, and that the development will bring big-city problems to an area where people moved to escape a large city. Supporters of the plan think the development will result in less popu lation density, than if the property was developed only with single-family homes. Commissioner John Allocco said the de velopment could actually prevent suburban sprawl. Included in the amend ment is a policy that states that the developer will other engineering stud ies at each phase of the project. Water-supply already seems to be a pressing issue as reported last week in an unrelated article on commissioners denying the sale of water to a Paso development. According to a Hernando Coun ty Utility Department analysis report, upcoming be problematic in terms of water supply. The Spring Hill Town Center project will add 450,000 gallons per day in residential water usage and 100,000 gallons per day in com mercial water usage. The report states, When the subject of water supply was mentioned during this meeting (July 26, 2017 pre-application meeting), a SWFWMD representative present stated decisively that no additional water withdrawal would be permitted in the Spring Hill area. Any additional water withdrawal would have to be from the north or eastern regions of the County. The utility has initiated capital projects to add one or more water plants and associated wells in the eastern service area, but these are only in the planning stages now and will not be available to provide water for the west ern service area for many years. Once available groundwater sources have been depleted, the county will have to move to more expensive and less desir able water sources, such as reverse osmosis and direct potable reuse. As well, the Spring Center developer will be working closely with the appropriate engineers to remedy any arising issues. Future public hear ings and workshops are expected, and no work is expected to start for 3-4 years. and The Hernando Sun will continue to fol low developments. What is a Comprehensive Plan? A Comprehensive Plan is the blueprint for the county's future growth and development. An amendment to that plan must be submitted to the Department of Economic Opportunity.

The contract which has now been amended 6 times, includes four weekly pickups: two days of garbage, yard waste once a week, and one pickup of recyclables. (This is referred to as 2-1-1 service.) Nearly 75% of the county is served by Republic and there are four districts. District CSpring Hillis a man datory district, meaning that the cost is included in their monthly water bill. The other districts pay the company directly for the service. In 2017, across all four districts the average monthly cost was $8.96. The sixth amendment to the contract increases the rates starting in Jan. 2019 and makes several other changes, focused on saving money. In August of 2017, Seth Weight man, Republics Munic ipal Services Manager, explained that Republic has many households which have not paid. Since they began service in 2012, Republic has lost more than $300,000 from households which have not paid their bill. In October of 2017, the sixth amendment to the contract with Repub lic was approved and includes the following changes: The agreement end date is changed from Dec. 31, 2018 to Dec. 31, 2026 The maximum age of changed from 5 years to a $285,000 minimum expenditure per new truck for another 5 years. Adds the use of au tomated carts beginning Jan. 2019 and increases rates for 2-1-1 pickup (twice per week garbage pickuponce per week yard wasteonce per week recycling) for man datory areas to $13.27 per month and non-mandato ry residential to $13.49. Rate adjustments based on the water/sewer/ trash index rather than the consumer price index Despite the increasing rates and money saving elements put into the contract, problems with Republic garbage pickup began to surface in early 2018 and rendered them county. Citizen com In February the county says Republic missed pickups on 1,317 streets, and 20 homes in partic ular were missed three times within 60 days. In March 2018 the county sent a letter to Republic stating that they are utilizing their right to assess liquidated dam ages as a direct result of continuous performance failures by contractor related to missed pick ups and chronic problems associated with the same Republic $135,300. In April 2018 Republic decided not challenge the of their workers while many were taking advan were already in full swing by the time they could provide relief. Hopefully Republic improves their service as the current contract runs through 2026.

Horticulturist Steve Curl and park construction in 2001 and in October of 2004, Sholom Park began enlightening visitors. There are eleven unique areas within the park, including an enchanted forest, an azalea trail, a garden labyrinth complete with a trickling brook and a pergebo trail. The plant ings are varied and include Florida natives, cultivated ornamentals, perennials and annuals. The park provides open spaces for children to run or small intimate sitting areas for a quiet conversation. Art and music festivals are frequently held at the park. The next Fun at the Park event featuring an afternoon of jazz and stringed instruments and original displays by local artisans will be held on May 6th, 2018 1 4PM. through the L.E.A.F. series which stands for Learn Explore Appreciate Focus.

Seitz is a computational linguist, researching the utility of everyday language as a signal of mental and neu rological health. Sholom Park is a 60 plus minute drive from Hernando County, de pending on your location. I recommend taking a route that does not include I-75. Country back roads can get you there and its much more pleasant. If youre traveling from Brooksville, S. Pleasant Grove Road to FL-200 is the way to go.

The Eagles (18-3), whom are currently ranked No. 3 in the state in Class 6A behind No. 1 New Port Richey River Ridge and Land O Lakes, has faced some tough competition as of late en route to the of the regular season. Springstead has faced the likes of Academy at the Lakes, whom is ranked No. 1 in Class 2A and Palm Harbor University, who is No. 6 in Class 9A. Eagles coach Craig Swartout points to the plan conceived before the season started in helping his club see some of the areas best teams. Part of our plan was to make sure we had a tough schedule and make sure we are Swartout said. Youve got Bloomingdale, Academy at the Lakes (AATL) and Palm Har bor University (PHU).

We wanted to branch out a little bit. Any time we can catch one of these Tampa teams we try to make it happen, but we always cant get our schedules right. The current variety of teams that the Eagles tions, as Springstead has seen PHU from 9A to Sunlake in 7A and AATL in 2A. All aforemen tioned clubs have been in the top 10 all season long in their respective classes and Swartout be lieves his team has had the opportunities to see the countys best week in and week out. Though Springstead didnt get to face region foes River Ridge or Land O Lakes, its schedule has been solid nonetheless. You see how a Class 9A team does it com pared to a Class 7A team, Swartout said. You dont always get an opportunity to experi ence things like that. We lost to Academy at the Lakes by one run, Sun lake one run and Palm Harbor by four runs. To be honest, being in a six team district and playing all of our county clubs, we wanted to make sure we put the toughest teams on the schedule. Springstead is the top seed in Class 6A, District 6 and are currently 10-0 against district opponents. The district tournament is just a couple weeks from now and with the Eagles defeating Lecanto 5-2 on Monday night, the district is up for grabs. Our goal right now is to win the district title and thats our main focus, Swartout add ed. We dont want to look ahead at all. We are getting everyones best shot. We wanted to be the No. 1 seed for a reason. I think every team in our district can win it.

Al Nienhuis led the way on the causal, at your own pace ride. The jour ney began at 70 Russell Street, in downtown Brooksville, and treated riders to scenery of the city otherwise unseen. It get active, and remain healthy. This free, family friendly event was de signed to celebrate and encourage citizens to see what has been done and the advantages it will have on our community. This is the second year of the community bike ride and the hope is to continue it every year. The concept of the Good Neighbor Trail began with the commit tee forming on March 6, 2000, and they have met numerous times since that date to see the idea to completion. Now the fruit of all the hard work is awaiting to welcome all who will give it a try. The Good Neighbor Trail is the Brooksville portion of the Florida Coast to Coast Trail. When completed, the Good Neighbor Trail will connect to the 46 mile paved, Withla coochee State Trail, allowing easy access to other cities by bike. The inspiration for the community ride came from CHIPP (Hernan do County Community Health Improvement Plan Partnership) with the interest in improv ing the overall physical and mental health of the community. The hope is that more people will want to get out and get active to help maintain a health weight. CHIPP is trying to raise awareness and combat the rising obesity rate. Since the trail will connect to the Withlacoochee State Trail, the inspiration was economical as well. The connection allows riders from other cities and counties into our com munity and the abilities to enjoy restaurants, hotels, and the numerous local businesses we have I myself have walked a portion of the Good Neighbor Trail from the Historic Brooksville Train Depot, to where it Street near Coney Island Drive Inn.

The production was funded in part by The Hernando County Fine Arts Council and was a collaborative and students. performance played to a packed house in front of an enthusiastic audience. During the introduction of the show, they were re minded to not shout out a child's name or clap when he or she came on stage because it could throw the that the actors keep calm and stay in character. According to one of the producers/directors, Ms. Rhonda Bowers, the cast had an incredibly short period of time to prepare for the show. We began rehearsals in November and we met three hours a week. There is never enough time to rehearse and our goal is to maintain a high level of expectations in the quality of work that we do as a performing arts school. To make it even more challenging, Ms. Bowers and the other directors, Irmarie Kraft and Nancy Kraus, worked with two separate main casts. The leading parts were played There was a Cast A and a Cast B. This gave more students the opportunity to be part of the production. Many of the supporting cast, such as dancers, acted in both casts. Some students had leading roles in one cast and support ing roles in the other, for Blehm. I played a beggar in Cast A and Aladdin in Cast B. I don't have any lines in Cast A, but sometimes I can ad lib. I can react with the main actors by shaking their hands. The best part of having two roles is that each role, Cody stated. Nadia Rios, along with another actor, played Avis, the Magic Carpet, in both casts. Nadia explained, Being in two casts is kind of stressful because if you're not there [for rehearsal] you're missing a whole change things every day and then the next day when you do what you thought you were supposed to do, they go 'no you've got to do it this way.' You have to be at two rehearsals. When a production company is working on a limited budget, creativity, imagination and innovation are important. For example, the Magic Carpet consisted of a platform on wheels, pushed by several children with two actors sitting on the platform. Parents and other family members pitched in to build sets. Rose Longsworth and Ana Rodriguez created the colorful costumes. Besides performing at the school for the students during the day and family members in the evening, the casts took the show on the road, performing at Sal ishan, a local Senior living facility and for the children at the Headstart program in Brooksville. graders, ten and eleven year old students, that made up the cast and crew. Many of the actors were veterans, having been in several school plays before. Brendan Shannon, who plays Aladdin in Cast A has performed in two other shows. I've been in the per forming arts all my life, The most challenging part of playing the lead wasn't memorizing the lines; it was a particular jump in the dancing. That was hard to learn, Brendan com mented. Jaida Grier, who per formed the role of the Genie in Cast B has been acting since kindergarten. My favorite part is performing in front of the younger kids because they believe it so much and they're laughing at almost everything. They're not as judgmental as an older audience, Jaida remarked. Although the entire cast gave a polished perfor mance, several minor characters stole the show. Not only were their lines hilarious, but they per formed them with comedic expression. Grace Appleton, in her premier performance, played Iago, the comic parrot sidekick of Jafar, the villain. Her squeaky voice and cute one-liners elicited laughter from the audience. The funniest part about playing the sidekick was he makes it about him. It's fun to do, Grace stated. The Genie in Cast A, played by Calia Brown, uttered wisecracks such as: Do these pants make me look fat? Or when Aladdin asks her if she can make him a Prince, she responds: I can make you a Prince; I can make you a ham sandwich... Not only were the students enthusiastic about the show, but so were the adults. When you, as the direc tor, see what you created and you can see the passion and commitment coming from the students, the ones whose heart is in it, that is all the reward you need as a director, stated Ms. Bowers. "As one of the Musical Theater directors, it's amaz ing to see how the per forming arts inspires and transforms our students. When our students are part of a production our goal is to help them reveal and have realized existed, add ed Drama Teacher, Irmarie Kraft. cast sang A Whole New World, expressing one of the story's themes of the younger generation creat ing a better world to live in. It was staged creatively with actors portraying various countries, such as the Statue of Liberty for the United States, an actor in a beret portraying France and a pizza chef represent ing Italy. The entire casts, as well as the parents and teachers, can be justly proud of this year's production of Alad din, Kids and the commu nity can look forward to next year's show. without fertilizer or culti vation. Their total weight was 911 pounds." This area was known for growing large watermel ons, several of the local farmers would compete to see who could grow the largest watermelon. That would earn them bragging rights for the year. In Central Florida, you should generally plant watermelon in March and April and again in July and August. Many times watermelon will grow from seeds collected from seeded watermelon. If you just scatter or spit the seeds outside they will often grow "volunteer plants." Watermelons can grow into large vines so you will want to grow them in an area that can be left alone for a few months. According to the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/ IFAS) "Watermelons take 80 to 100 days to mature depending on the variety. when your watermelon is ready to harvest. Look for the bottom of the melon to be cream-col ored or bright yellow; a white or pale green spot means the melon is not yet ripe. Also, check the curled tendril closest to the melon on the vine. When it turns brown and shrivels, the melon should be ripe." IFAS has a local exten You can reach out to them with questions at (352) 754-4433.

However, by doing a bit of research into some successful that all of them have used these keys in building their company, hence making them essential for you and your business as well. Before we go into detail on what these keys are though, we need to es tablish what Im referring to when I say Successful Business. I dont mean giant corporations with shareholders and 1,000+ locations worldwide. I mean a small business owner whos worked hard to provide for his family and by what seems like the good graces of God managed to expand his business into a decent network. Perhaps even employing 100 or so employees in various locations or managing multiple contractors and projects at a time. What keys have they used to get to where they are at? And more importantly, how can you get there too? 1Know Your Trade This may seem obvi however there is a lot more involved in this key than just knowing what you do. Part of knowing your trade, means more than just knowing what you know, it also means knowing what you dont know. For instance, any new entrepreneur may know some aspects of his trade, but now that he is venturing into his own business there is a whole new skill that he has to learn. Besides the marketing aspect of it, most trades are never a standalone isolated skill, they often mix and meld into other trades and skills that you may not be familiar with. For instance, you may be the best tile setter in the world, but your skills will mean nothing if the walls you are laying tiles on are completely crooked. This is where you now have to know framing and sheet rocking to get that wall to line up perfectly for your tiles. In most, if not all business there will be overlap of skills required to get the job done. Your key in knowing your trade will mean identifying what tasks you can do yourself, and what tasks expert to do it for you. Of course, an important aspect of knowing your trade is learning the skills that you dont already know, but more on that later. Another aspect of knowing your trade, and perhaps an equally important aspect of it, is knowing the people you work with. This does not only include your business partners, employees or contractors, but also your customers, clients and patrons. In order to know your trade, you need to understand how the people of your trade think and act. For instance, if youre a web designer trying to attract new clients. What reasons do your clients have to pay you? What worries may they have to detract them from doing so? What guarantees can you give them to belay those fears? If youre a shop owner, why do your cus tomers need your prod uct? How can you show them that your product will improve their lives? What reasons do they have to choose you over your competitors? These questions may seem like common sense for you to consider as you run your business; if thats the case, good for you! youre already ahead of the game. 2Work Hard! Again, it would seem like common sense, but like knowing your trade, there is more to working hard than the physical aspect of it. No successful business owner has ever gotten where they are by running their business like they run their TV, sitting back and letting their remote control do all the work. If you have employees or contractors to do the work for you, great! But dont assume that they are as skilled or as motivated as you are at it. Show them how the work is done by pulling your sleeves up and working with them. Part of working hard as a business owner is learning how to be a leader. Even if youre the only employee of your business, your clients and customers will notice this leadership quality if you work hard at it. This will you and your product and will earn their respect and business. Working hard to be a leader though, does not mean pushing your weight around like a tyrant; sure, your employees will do what you tell them, but you will lack the respect and motivation required to keep them working while youre not around. This means avoiding shouting and screaming every time youre frustrated or re sorting to demeaning and sarcastic comments to rip them apart. Self-control is a rare art these days but remember; its a skill that makes the best leaders in todays industry. But what if you dont have that natural born leadership skill that you need? Then learn it! There is a reason why the title of this key is Work Hard. This means working hard to learn that skill, along with any other skill required to accomplish your job. This is what I mentioned earlier about learning the skills you need instead of always do it for you. Lets face it no matter how long youve worked in any particular industry you will never be able to say to yourself, I know all there is to know about it. Nor should you! Most industries are constantly changing and evolving and you need to be able to evolve with it. Working hard also involves work ing hard with your family. Remember, no matter how old you are, we all have a spend each day. Neglect ing family responsibilities will eventually lead to undue stress and anxiety that will deprive you of your energy. Many suc cessful business owners are so because they work together with their spouse to accomplish a goal together. Working hard also means remembering that perfection is not pro ductive. Use the adage of working smart and apply the 80/20 rule. This idea is also known as the Pa reto principle. It involves the observation that often 80 percent of the results come from about 20 per 3Be Honest Now you might think Honesty? Really? and in short, yes honesty is a key aspect in building a successful business. Of course, honesty may not be the policy in multi-bil lion-dollar corporate industries. But, an import ant trait of a successful business owner is the abil ity to earn peoples trust. By far some of the rarest qualities in the business world nowadays are trust and loyalty, but those are vital qualities that people need in almost every as pect of running a business. Clients need to trust that you can deliver the work you promised, customers need to trust that they are getting the best product from you, employees and contractors need to trust that you have their best interest at heart or theyll leave. In every aspect of running your business, you need people to trust you, and the best way of doing that is by establishing a pattern of honest hard work from the beginning. What exactly does this entail? Be upfront and straightforward with your clients. If you dont know how to do something they require, dont lie to them so you can get their busi ness. Tell them you dont have much experience in services at a markdown as you learn. Again, back to working hard as you learn. Now this is not to say that you should advertise your lack of experience in a choose you if they dont trust your skills, simply be straightforward and honest should the question come up. Although being honest when money is involved, stay true to the course of honesty; in the long run a better reputation will make up for your current losses. Honesty is like a long-term investment that, for the longest time you just seem to put money into it, then at long last large dividends. So, this means that when Jimmy; the contractor you hired man up, explain to the client what happened, and replace the damages. The result? Youll have trust and loyalty in your business. This loyalty will even prevent you from losing contractors, clients and employees when your competitors eventually try to poach them away. In the active social media world that we live in, your busi public support, companies can rise or crumble be cause of what the masses have to say on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. So being honest means more than just the funds you might lose on that one job. It means sending a mes sage to the world about what kind of business and person you are. As mentioned on the outset of this article, there is much more to being a successful business owner then just these three keys, however you can rest assured that these keys will contribute to greater success if you use them.

Sherman Hills is tucked away in a deed-restricted community just east of very friendly and there is a wide assortment of gear and apparel for sale. They also have demo drivers available. Most of the front nine runs through a new area of the development, so there is some construction taking place as of this writing. The fairways and greens are in pretty good shape, and players at Sherman Hills are diligent about marks. There is not a lot of water to worry about, and if youre playing the forward tees, you are un likely to send any balls for a swim. Most of the holes are straight, with bunkers dont overshoot number 5, which has a huge trap wrapping around the entire left side. The greens have hills too. Use a light touch if downhill. Things get interesting on the back nine. The number 10 tee boxes are small peninsulas right on a picturesque pond. I ran into a small alligator on my way to fourteen, who was totally unconcerned with golfers as he (she?) sun is another tricky approach to avoid the sand guarding back into a pond. When you get to eighteen, youll need to limit any running of the ball, otherwise, youll lose it in the pond that wraps around the back and both sides of the green. Its a lot of fun! by SARAH NACHIN HERNANDO SUN STAFF On Friday April 6, 2018 Bayfront Health Spring Hill and Brooksville campuses took part in the Suncoast March of Dimes, March for Babies Walk at Work. Participants made monetary contributions walked around the two campuses to raise money for this worthwhile orga nization. Rachel Provau, the chair for this year's campaign, stated, This event gives nesses the opportunity to support the March for Babies Walk if they can't make it to the big event on April 28 at the Shoppes of Wiregrass. Kelsey Thomas with Suncoast March of Dimes in Tampa oversees Citrus, Hernando and Pasco County and is the Devel opment Manager for the March for Babies Walk. Ms. Thomas comment ed, Our total event goal is to raise $245,000. We do this through corporate sponsors, local donors and teams that participate at the walk. My personal goal is to get our mission out into the community to reach as far and wide as it can to get more people participating. March of Dimes is celebrating its 80th birthday this year. A local couple, Adam and Jessie Williams, represent just two of the many people in the community that have gotten involved. Adam, a software engineer for an environmental consultant instructor, raised $500 through two events. One was Yoga in the Vines at Strong Tower Winery. The Williams', who are motorcycle enthusiasts, also raised money through a Bike Night held last month at the Cove on Hernando Beach. We were involved in March of Dimes back in Kansas City, Missouri through Bikers for Babies before we moved here. The success of our Bike Night here showed the generosity of the people in Hernando County, Adam remarked. Bayfront Health, which has the only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Hernando and Citrus Counties and also services northern Pasco Coun ty, has been supporting March of Dimes since 2011 and has raised more than $53,000 in that time. This year the goal is to raise $12,000, of which has already contributed $2,500. In addition more than 700 of its employees at both campuses will be participating in various activities be sides the Walk at Work. For example, Easter Bas We set up a Penny Jar in the cafeterias where people can drop their spare change and next week we're holding a Cup cake War. Departments will compete against each other to see who makes the best cupcakes, said Ms. Provau. At last Friday's event, Bayfront Health's CEO Ken Wicker was there public and add his enthu siasm to the event. Wicker stated, My role is to be supportive of the March of Dimes program because they support us and the neo-nates [prema ture babies]. When they're born at twenty-seven to twenty-eight weeks, they stay with us for a long time sometimes four to six weeks and it can cost $80,000 to $100,000 per baby. Ms. Provau added, Preventing prematurity by prenatal care, taking care of special needs babies, education and sup port are very important. Right now we have three babies in the Neonatal ICU. The babies are bare ly two pounds. A lot of the tech we have in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) is a result of March of Dimes funding for re search. Our #1 priority is to make the public aware of all the things March of Dimes does. Youngest in atten dance on Friday was Baby Zoe, the March of Dimes Ambassador for Bayfront Health Spring Hill. Daughter of Jessica Tindall, a unit secretary, Zoe was born at just 25 weeks and spent a month in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Bayfront's Baby Place. Now she is an active, thriving baby. Local businesses have also come out to support Bayfront Health's cam paign in the form of gift donations. These include Gator's Dockside, the Breakfast Station and Sakura Asian Cuisine and Sushi. On April 12, Texas Roadhouse donated 10% of diners' total food order when they presented a With its past track record, Bayfront Health is sure to meet, if not exceed, this year's fund raising goal and continue to support the mission of the March of Dimes to improve the health of mothers and babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

OPINION April 1319, 2018 hernandosun.com HERNANDO SUN 19 Big tech, Intelligence community bypass 4th Amendment DOMENICK J. MAGLIO, PH.D. Traditional Realist WILLIAM F. HOLLAND MINISTER / CHAPLAIN It all happened so quickly. One day in the 1990s dotcom appeared on the scene. Dotcom stocks took off to great heights with little revenue produced but with great potential to change the way everything is done. In early 2000 there was the Dotcom bust due to over valued Dotcom stocks although some took root and grew to be powerful institu tions in our nation. Today Google, Apple, Amazon and Facebook are among the richest and politically powerful corporations in the world. They tural, social and political land scape of the United States and the entire world. Cyber space has replaced Main Street, libraries, maps, entertainment and social interaction. We are now learning it has invaded our privacy and the 1st and 4th Amendments of the Bill of rights. There is now an unholy alli ance between Big Tech and the federal governments intelligence community. The intelligence community with bloated budgets does not have to go through a bidding process to choose the best bid. Instead they secret ly pick a corporation that has political contacts with the gov ernment bureaucrats instrumen tal in this process. It is a subtle form of crony capitalism. High power lobbyists are able to pass statues and laws to protect and give unfair advantages to prese behind closed doors agreement that favors the elite technological corporations. Google maps was created by the intelligence community, which demonstrates an on going interplay between the intelli gence community and Big Tech. This allowed Google to leapfrog over their competitors. Amazon has reshaped all types of com merce and has been given a large government contract to store government data on the Cloud. Facebook has been found to sell valuable data from 2.2 billion users without their knowledge to various companies for pinpoint ing potential people interested Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about Instant Messages on Sep tember 13, 2010 by Jose Vargas about Harvard student users of Facebook who just submitted information, he said they were dumb f***s. This shows Zucker bergs supreme distain towards the users of Facebook. Amazon, Facebook, Google and other social media mammoths are not only privy to innermost social interactions and are able to censor information but are selling this information to other Our personal data when pieced together reveals our preferences, attitudes and even our political each citizen. President Obamas staff member stated that they had extracted the entire social network of the people of the US from Facebooks data. This allowed President Obamas cam paign to micro target personal is sues to engage and entice future followers to vote for him. The power of Big Tech is not only used for direct advertising purposes but it can bypass the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Letters to the Editor: We welcome your comments which may be published in the news paper and our website. ey should be no longer than 400 words and include the name, daytime phone number and email address of the author for verication purposes if neces sary.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Being reunited with our parents forever A few days ago, the on/ off button of my Windows phone stopped working. The only way I could turn it on was to plug it in to charge. I could receive messages and calls, and ev erything else still worked, but if I wanted to read the news I had to plug it in first before heading to the bath room. And the same goes for when I wanted to make a call or text someone. A few years ago, my wife pestered me that I needed to upgrade from a TracFone to something more versa tile, more modern. I loved my TracFone, and note that it is still popular in this late second decade of the twen ty-first century. During our vacation to visit my sister and brother-in-law, Craftster and Helm, I made a passing comment that I thought Helms Windows phone was cool. So not long after we got home, my wife bought me one. I was greatly afeared of it, and it took me a long, long time to finally master most of it. The problem was, no one around me had a Windows, and Helms phone was a notch or two higher and so he couldnt help. Conse quently, I figured it out all by myself, little by little, month after month. So the day before yes terday, my wife got me an iPhone. I wanted another TracFone, but my family argued against it. They said, You wont be able to read the news or check the weather. I said, I used to read a book or more a week, but Im now down to none because of the stupid smart phone, so I dont care. They pointed out, Youll have to text with buttons that have three letters again! I countered with, If someone texts me, Ill call them back, which is what I prefer anyway, and you better talk like a text: keep it brief and hang up. That stumped them for a while. But then they said, All of us have iP hones, so everyone around you can help. Well, that was the selling point. My youngest grandkids, Spud and Rex, have exactly the same phone, and everyone else has simply a bigger version. So I agreed to not immediately send it back. Turns out I didnt need any help. I activated it, and added alarms and phone numbers, and figured out messaging and other things all by myself. My grand daughter, Sneaks, came over for pancakes this morning, and I asked her how to do some little thing, and she did it for me, but I was just making conver sation. Later I complained to my wife that I couldnt connect my Bluetooth earpiece to my new phone, and I watched as she did everything I had already done, and she wasnt able to pair the two. (I need to get a compatible earphone, because my elbow and shoulder gristle will not tolerate more than ten min utes of hand-held talking, even with Glucosamine.) While she was doing that, she noticed that I had email on my phone. She had tried to add hers for a long time but it wouldnt take, and the folks at the Apple store couldnt figure it out either. Took me ninety sec onds to add hers. Ha. I had spent years on a Windows training for an iPhone. GOOFY STUFF By VINCENT CARDEGIN I went for a quiet walk the other day, to relax and sort my thoughts like the stacks of mes sages and notes on my desk. While gazing at the clear sky and breathing in the cool air, it dawned on me that its been almost two years since my dad passed away. Honestly, it seems like yesterday. I realize that many people grew up without a father and Im very sympathetic about that. Thank God, there are great step-dads and stepmoms that have stepped into been a much needed tower of strength and stability in the life of a child. Then I realized, that everyone who manages to en joy a normal life expectancy will eventually outlive their parents. This means that most of us will be required to go through the heartbreak of saying goodbye to those who were always the center of our universe. Wheth er you have already walked through this valley or if this event has not yet happened, we will most likely be left to continue in our winter years without our mom and dad. When my wife Cheryl and I were married, our parents were in their early forties and ev eryone seemed so young and tations. I guess this is why we were in shock when her dad passed away four years later from cancer at the age of 48. She remembers as a tom-boy, crawling under cars and watch ing him work on them. She did not have a clue what he was doing but just enjoyed spend ing quality time alone with him. Working on an old car was probably aggravating to him, but to her, it was exciting as she was like a nurse trying to to hand him next or more than likely what size hammer he needed. Soon after we married, we rented a little house in town and on Saturday mornings after I left for work, her dad would stop by with donuts and they would have some coffee and talk. Through the years Ive listened to her mention about how much she misses him and what a large part of her security and safety disappeared. Now I understand. It seems so strange when I think that my dad is no lon few months, sometimes in the evenings, I would pick up the phone to call him. When I would come to my senses, I not only realized hes not there, but hes never coming back. These are the moments we begin to understand how fragile life is and how we take our blessings for granted. As we grow older, we begin to seriously compre hend we only have one father and one mother. Though many other dads and moms are listed in the obituary every day, our pain is unique because they are our parents and we are more closely connected to them than anyone else in the world. Its only natural after they are gone, to feel alone and to miss hearing their voice and listen ing to their thoughts and opin ions about everything. You will begin to notice that you have some of your parent's traits and quirks but thats OK because it makes you feel closer to them and appreciate them more than with their memories and they will continue to mean more William F.

Box 1394, Nicholasville, KY 40340 Training for an iPhone To the Editor: Since the beginning of recorded history, we have read about the struggle of man's desire to live free and pursue happiness. Free from govern ment control, free from others who think they know best about how he should live. I consider this a war. A war between freedom and slavery which started with Cain killing Abel up to present day. There will always be those trying to bend others to their will, to place them in slavery for their own gain. This is Socialism. In a So cialist nation, the government leaders prosper while all others share in the misery. It is called the redistribution of wealth. The natural human incentive to be competitively ambitious and prosper will die. That is precisely why people like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi want redistribu tion of wealth which is intend ed to promote the destruction of the people's spirit leaving these Socialist leaders fat and in power. Obamacare is a good ex ample of a battle in which the forces of freedom lost to the forces of Socialist slavery. We must erase Barack Obama's Socialistic impact in our con gress as we have in our White House and it must be done this year in November by keeping it out of the Domacrat leader ship of Pelosi and Schumer. We need to elect as many Conservative Constitutional people to congress as humanly possible. If we fail to do this and they take power they will stop country back to the people and away from government control of our lives. These Socialist Progressive Democrats intend to Socialize this country and make us slaves. This must not happen. Larry Biddle, Brooksville Family Swimming and Nature Park Weeki Wachee Preserve The vote under consider ation by the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) on April 10, 2018 would approve further discussion and explora tion of the concept of a nature park for Hernando County families in a small portion of the Weeki Wachee preserve. This vote is not approval of the park. It permits exploration of the viability and the suitability of a location in the preserve for a nature park amenity for Hernando County families. I am writing to indicate my strong support for continued deliberations to assess the pros and cons of this nature park as Hernando County families nature and water based ameni ties in the county. I attended the meeting on March 27th and did not feel objective information about economic, environmental and operational aspects of a nature park given the infancy phase of the concept. And that the families of Hernando County warranted a voice and more information too. Neighborhoods generally protest recreational devel opment proximate to their communities. But some of the discussions, blogs, emails and postings overstate a number of factors. 1) IMPACT ON THE PRESERVE: The Preserve itself is an incred ible environmental location and should remain as a major contribution to the wildlife and natural resources of Hernando County. The proposed park site is <1% or 0.6% of the Preserve. Put another way 99.4% of the existing Preserve footprint and animal habitat remains unchanged. The proposed site does not interfere with the bear corridor or bird sanctuary which are to the east As well, this is a land swap. The acreage is replaced with preferable ecological land the size of preserve remains unchanged. So the size, quality and activity in the Preserve are retained and improved. Both families and the proposal. 2) SHOAL LINE ENTRANCE Park attendance will drive spaces. Extremely light attendance would be the October through April pattern following Rogers Park and Pine Island trends. Summer weekends (May through August) will have higher attendance particularly on weekends. The estimates below would occur on about 36 days (or 18 weekends) during the year. (About 10% of the calendar) As well, these estimates are on days that the snowbirds have left the area and the is low. 3) TRAFFIC ON SHOAL LINE (estimates) Estimate of high demand park ing days: Pine Island and Rogers Park accommodate about 200 cars in total on high weekend demand days. Regardless of the fact that the concept for the new park shows 500 parking spaces, based on the actual attendance at the park. At peak demand times on a summer weekend, it should be anticipated that 200 to 250 cars could be at the park. (The Hernando County recreation department would have some estimates) Shoal Line Congestion due to access/egress: With self-parking systems (park and then pay at machine) cars can exit Shoal Line and enter the park at 5 second inter vals. All attendance for a given high demand day could enter the park in 15 to 20 minutes in total. And this would be spread over 3 to 4 hours, making congestion unlikely. Estimated congestion on Shoal Line due to access/egress None to negligible on peak days. welfare/Impact on wildlife: The arrival and departure times for family amenities and beaches are predominantly visibility for driver. The vast majority of wildlife are nocturnal in their patterns. And this is when most are killed. A Shoal Line entrance for this type of amenity is reason ably friendly for wildlife. Osowaw: The consideration of an Osowaw entrance puts the middle of the preserve, cre ating another road for wildlife to cross within the preserve. It disturbs the footprint of natural activity more than a Shoal Line entrance would. While there are no guarantees, a Shoal Line park to a small area and protect the habitat and animal corridors for the rest of the Preserve. In summary: The uniqueness of this loca tion and the alignment with an incredible resource that could be used by more families make this project worth additional discussion. There was not comments on March 27 to raise these issues in their totality, as I assumed that a vote to simply continue to discussion with SWFMD would be the most logical to represent all the citi zens of Hernando County. I sincerely believe that current arguments relative to overstated. However, the only way to determine this objectively is to continue with the process and secure professional, neutral dance volume and patterns, environmental and operation al considerations of quarry swimming would answer the questions swirling around the concept. Should this process proceed, input from public workshops, well as communities all over the county could be sought to determine if the demand for a nature and swimming amenity would be desirable for Hernan do County families. Many Hernando Beach residents share the same belief that this project should be thoroughly evaluated because of the potential to bring a na ture experience of swimming, hiking, and picnicking in the Preserve to many families in Hernando County.

Rights. According to the latest revelations, not only does our searching for particular items on the Internet generate more pop up ads but our home conversa tions with a cell phone or personal assistant device nearby can recognize, record and store information that was merely discussed in an audible area of the cell phones internal speakers. Our medical records now can readily be accessed with the newly available data and Facebook is planning to enter. Edward Snowden tried to warn us that the NSA was recording and storing our telephone conversations. He was instantly portrayed as a liar and a traitor although he was right. He was a hero in his attempt to warn us of government intrusion into everyones de tailed daily actions and thoughts. He was cor rect and knew that the Big Tech was also being enlisted by the intelli gence community. The purpose of this unholy alliance is to en hance and better utilize technology to target politically incorrect speech and electronically perform search and seizure into our supposedly sacred homes. The ability to record and access personal conversations and infor mation is a potent tool to establish a strong totalitarian govern ment within the United single weapon. These tech companies have servative Americans to undermine their future potential before it could take root. They are systematically censoring individuals that these companies disagree with. (Facebooks refusal to carry Diamond and Silk commentary and others.) This computer surveillance is beyond the average persons comprehension. The future advances in tech nology will make keep ing our liberties even more precarious or even impossible if we do not create government safe guards to protect the people This nexus between surveillance agencies and Big Tech has the speech and intimidate citizens into accepting governmental dictates of PC behavior in our daily interactions even with family members. The knowledge of our thoughts in every setting will facilitate selecting and forcing citizens into reeducation camps. The odds of establish ing a totalitarian gov ernment with these new surveillance techniques have become quite fa vorable. Something has to be done!

Even the simple things like remembering your dad mowing the yard and watching his favorite team or your mom putting the food on the table and giving you a big hug becomes like one of the greatest movies you will ever see.

Here is one of the lines, When your fa ther dies, you lose your umbrella against bad weather, he takes your childhood with him and your sun shifts forever.
