We mostly traveled on foot to the nearby town. Once in a while Pa would hitch up our old gray mare to the wagon and wed visit Mas relatives afar off. I always seemed to be in some kind of trouble, without really knowing why. My older brother often had to pull me off one of the other kids during a knockdown drag-out fight. Thats how I got kicked out of school. The teacher told Pa I was too much for her to handle even though I was a tiny, scrawny, seven year old girl. All my crying and kicking did me no good. My brother and sister, hand-in-hand, would travel down the dusty narrow path day after day on their way to school. Ma kept a tight grip and a careful eye on me. But today was different. It was just me and Pa. We made our way down that dusty path hand-in-hand with a carpetbag in hand. I waved goodbye to Ma and my brother and sister. This time there were tears in their eyes as they were left behind. I looked back, smiled at them and skipped alongside Pa. I didnt know where I was going. I was just glad to be going somewhere with Pa. Pa didnt know how to tell me where we were going because I am deaf. Born that way they say. I never did hear a wordjust a loud noise every now and then. It was the greatest thrill to see lightning, to feel the ground rumble under my feet and every now and then hear the sound of thunder. Soon we got to town. I saw a big, long train. As we got closer I wondered was Pa taking me on that train? Could it be! Then we walked right up the iron steps of that train. I leaped into the air and tapped Pa, pointed to myself, then to Pa, and to the train. Pa laughed and nodded his head. He lifted me up onto the train. There were so many times I had seen the train and begged Pa to let me go for a ride. Now here I was getting on that train. It felt almost too good to be true. Soon the train rumbled on its way. I pressed my nose against the window and pointed out to Pa every house and every animal I saw along the way. There were so many horses, cows and sheep scattered across the Oklahoma prairie. Id never seen so many houses and animals in all my life. Not even when Pa took us in the old wagon to visit Mas relatives afar off. Pa sat quietly. He looked sad, his mind was somewhere off from the excitement of the everchanging view. I didnt know what Pa was thinking, just that it must be something important. Maybe even something to worry about. It wouldnt be until almost a year later that Id understand the story behind us taking this trip together.

Solution to Sudoku from p 18: Review of the Brooksville Police Pension Plan By JULIE MAGLIO Florida abortion waiting period law struck down by judge TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) A Tallahassee judge is declaring Floridas 24-hour abortion waiting period unconstitutional and is perma nently blocking enforcement of the law. Circuit Judge Terry Lewis on Tuesday ruled that the 2015 law was an impermissible intrusion of privacy rights that are contained in Floridas constitution. The state constitution establishes the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion in ones private life and has been used to strike down other laws restricting access to abortion. Tuesdays ruling is not a surprise since the Florida Supreme Court last year temporarily Gov. Rick Scott signed the waiting period into law in 2015, but it was quickly challenged by the ACLU on behalf of a Gainesville abor tion clinic.

Jan. 12 18, 2018 hernandosun.com HERNANDO SUN 7 IN, OUT & ABOUT Life & Leisure Whirl Up Smoothies for After-School SnacksSmoothie. It feels good just to say the word, doesnt it? I used to think of the concoction of naturally sweet, fresh fruit flavors with crushed ice and yogurt as a magical summer thirst quencher, but with so many healthy and sometimes surprising add-ins nowadays from kale to beets and chia seeds I recently dusted off my blender to give some new combos a whirl. While my preference is still a traditional blend of vitamin-rich fruits and berries (even when they come out of a package from the freezer), my family likes a variety of updated twists, too including adding coconut milk to the goodness for a refreshing, light taste. But first, some smoothie basics using a standard blender. 1. Start with liquids such as juice, milk, kefir, yogurt, sparkling water and crushed ice. 2. Add fresh fruit (a half or whole banana is a standard ingredient for flavor and for thickening the mixture of any smoothie) and/or vegetables. To cut prep time, your school-age kids can pre-package and freeze fruitand-veggie combinations in small plastic-bag packets. When its time to make a smoothie, toss in the contents of a packet with other ingredients. 3. Whirl it all together. I pulse a few times, then blend for 15 seconds or until smooth. Now for my go-to recipe that is quick to make at breakfast time before sending kids out the door to the bus stop, or as a satisfying afternoon snack to refuel. Older school-age kids can make it themselves with attention to tastes and health needs. Be flexible, too, and experiment with the addition of other ingredients you have on hand, such as a few chunks of pineapple, slices of kiwi or a ripe mango. You really cant go wrong.FRUIT SMOOTHIE WITH COCONUT MILK 4 ice cubes, crushed 1 cup coconut milk 1/2 banana 1/2 cup plain, unsweetened yogurt 1 cup fresh or frozen berries, such as a combination of blueberries, strawberries and raspberries Dash of cinnamon (optional) Place ingredients in blender starting with liquids, and process until smooth. Pour into glasses. Makes about 2 1/2 cups TIP: If smoothie is too thin, add more fruit or yogurt. Too thick? Just add milk or fruit juice. *** Donna Ericksons award-winning series Donnas Day is airing on public television nationwide.

10 HERNANDO SUN hernandosun.com Jan. 12 18, 2018 BEAU (RIGHT) 10313147 Beau really needs our help getting out of the shelter! He really is a good boy and really wants to please and love you. He spends most days locked up for 23. 5 hours and thats on a good day...some days he doesnt get out at all! Once out of his kennel he has some energy to burn but after a bit he settles down and likes to be loved on. He came in with a fe male kennel mate who was adopted quickly and unfor tunately Beau feels lost and abandoned without her. He will make someone an excellent companion if just given the chance. Although he is a big boy he does have a soft spot and a big heart. Please come meet Beau soon! Hernando Animal Services,19450 Oliver St. Brooksville, FL 352-7965062 TINSEL 10313737 This young dog came into the shelter around Christmas time and was named Tinsel by the volunteers. She looks like a small Black Mouth Cur/ Shep/ Bully mix and is 2 to 3 years old. We dont know why Tinsel is so extremely frightened. She is very scared at the shelter, shaking in her kennel, too scared to even take a treat. There has not been any aggression seen, just fear. The volunteers have been spending time with her, kennel, petting her and talking to her. The last couple of times we were able to carry her outside into the grass (she was too scared to walk out on her own, passing the other barking dogs). Once outside she relaxed more and seemed to enjoy herself. It was good to see her walking around on her own without her tail tucked under!!! Tinsel needs a quiet home, possibly without kids, with a bed in a quiet corner, where she can just watch and get to know her new surroundings and learn that not all people are bad. Being away from the noise of the shelter will help her a lot. Is there anyone out there who is willing to help this girl? It will take some time,patience and un derstanding but we think at the end Tinsel will be a loyal, grateful companion. MEATBALL LEFTSay hi to Meatball!! This guy is super lovable and affectionate. He came in with a female chow who left with rescue yesterday so now he is all by himself. He seems to get along with other dogs but the shelter always recom mends a meet and greet. He loves to play fetch and thinks hes a lap dog! Hes very sweet and gentle and overall a big mush! Come out and meet Meatball! CONGRATULATIONS MAGGIEADOPTED! Please take me home with you? help these wonderful pets nd a forever home BUSTER 10313593 Buster is a sweetheart!! A complete love. Loved by everyone at the shelter! He is a little shy with new people in the yard but once you earn his trust you will have a friend and companion for LIFE! He is very mild mannered and just wants to be close to you. Pretty good on leash. Please consider opening your heart and home to this very loving and special boy. Hernando Animal Services,19450 Oliver St. Brooksville, FL 352796-5062 Exciting News!!

I grew up on the Oklahoma prairie in an old log cabin with Pa, Ma and my older brother and sister. We mostly traveled on foot to the nearby town. Once in a while Pa would hitch up our old gray mare to the wagon and wed visit Mas relatives afar off. I always seemed to be in some kind of trouble, without really knowing why. My older brother often had to pull me off one of the other kids during a knockdown drag-out fight. Thats how I got kicked out of school. The teacher told Pa I was too much for her to handle even though I was a tiny, scrawny, seven year old girl. All my crying and kicking did me no good. My brother and sister, hand-in-hand, would travel down the dusty narrow path day after day on their way to school. Ma kept a tight grip and a careful eye on me. But today was different. It was just me and Pa. We made our way down that dusty path hand-in-hand with a carpetbag in hand. I waved goodbye to Ma and my brother and sister. This time there were tears in their eyes as they were left behind. I looked back, smiled at them and skipped alongside Pa. I didnt know where I was going. I was just glad to be going somewhere with Pa. Pa didnt know how to tell me where we were going because I am deaf. Born that way they say. I never did hear a wordjust a loud noise every now and then. It was the greatest thrill to see lightning, to feel the ground rumble under my feet and every now and then hear the sound of thunder. Soon we got to town. I saw a big, long train. As we got closer I wondered was Pa taking me on that train? Could it be! Then we walked right up the iron steps of that train. I leaped into the air and tapped Pa, pointed to myself, then to Pa, and to the train. Pa laughed and nodded his head. He lifted me up onto the train. There were so many times I had seen the train and begged Pa to let me go for a ride. Now here I was getting on that train. It felt almost too good to be true. Soon the train rumbled on its way. I pressed my nose against the window and pointed out to Pa every house and every animal I saw along the way. There were so many horses, cows and sheep scattered across the Oklahoma prairie. Id never seen so many houses and animals in all my life. Not even when Pa took us in the old wagon to visit Mas relatives afar off. Pa sat quietly. He looked sad, his mind was somewhere off from the excitement of the everchanging view. I didnt know what Pa was thinking, just that it must be something important. Maybe even something to worry about. It wouldnt be until almost a year later that Id understand the story behind us taking this trip together.
