Parks and Recreation Manager Harry Johnson presented to the board the three projects, with the kayak pull-out point being a topic of heavy discussion lately due to overcrowd ing on the Weeki Wachee River. Currently, the ride from the headspring to Rogers Park is 5.5 miles, and with the state limitation of 70 kayakers leaving the headspring per hour, there are still hundreds of kayaks on the river making their way to Rogers Park. The pull-out point two miles downriver is expected to alleviate the congestion. The Bayport Pier was damaged by Hurricane Hermine in 2016 and needs to be replaced. According ence after using Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funds will be $109,825.44. Dep uty County Administrator FEMA is expected to reim burse this amount at a later date, however there is a possibility that FEMA may not approve all expenses, and that Parks and Rec reation is requesting that the Quality of Life Fund absorb any overage. The commission voted in Jan. of 2017 to re-con struct the Bayport Pier with funding from the ESL fund. Chairman Steve Cham pion recognized the pier as being another long-running and often discussed topic, and asked how long the replacement project is ex pected to take after funding explained the process lead ing to the incoming bids, and expects the pier to be open to the public this fall. The Pine Island Ob servation Deck was also damaged during Hurricane Hermine, and following the same process for bids and obtaining funds from FEMA, Johnson requested $16,044.19. FEMAs engi neers appraised the repair cost at $8,030.31, and the winning bid from a local contractor estimated re pairs to be around $23,000. When Johnson questioned the large discrepancy, he was told by FEMA to col lect more bids, which came in with higher estimates. First to comment on the FEMA estimate, Commis sioner John Allocco said, Its amazing that FEMA would think you could do it for eight grand you cant even buy a shed from Home Depot for eight grand. Commissioner Champi on questioned the necessity of the observation deck, which Johnson acknowl edged does subtract beach space from an already small beach. However, Johnson reported that the deck had been used fre quently for sunset viewing, weddings, and promoted local tourism. Commis sioner Wayne Dukes added that the unseen portion of the photo shown was nothing but rocks, and that the sand on the side of the walkway to the deck was placed by the county. Dukes suggested that perhaps the county sponsor the observation deck in return for placing The service road planned for the Weeki Wachee River take-out point is an estimated 0.66 mile stretch which is estimated to cost $55,620. The county has been working with state Sensitive Lands groups and the Department of Public Works (DPW) to facilitate the project which Cham pion called a huge win for everyone involved. According to Johnson, the early take-out will result in a 40% reduction in kayaks in the river beyond that point, and landing at Rogers Park. Concerned citizen Shannon Turbeville, cor responded with the county prior to the May 8, 2018 meeting approving the funding for the Weeki Wa chee River kayak pullout stating, Why is Hernan do County considering using $55,620 of taxpayer money to fund a road on state property that will According to the agenda description it is to "allevi ate some of the commercial She continued, Why cant the Board save the $55,000 and at the next vendor contract renewal (this year) simply limit the numbers of commercial You have the authority to control the amount of commercial activity at decide to go ahead and fund this, would there be a cap implemented at Rogers ity so you can be ensured your residents and visitors can once again use the up to 70 commercial rental vessels per hour are autho the one and only public this unless an immediate contract addendum with place specifying that a hour will be retrieved from Deputy Administrator For the upstream this is intended to remove that travel down the entire length of the river, thus shortening the amount of aware, the 4-5 hour trip currently is too long for many users to stay in their done to the vegetation in the river and on the sur lieve more damage is done to the resource from the However, the carrying ca pacity study that the BOCC and SWFWMD approved for funding will provide us factual data in the future BOCC tomorrow the following Policy numbers be considered for use of the funding: to improve resource based Passive Recreation as list ed in the Hernando County Management Plan for is a structural enhance ment to the river and not the desire along the river, the goal of limiting the degradation of the river by decreasing the amount the river and leaving their fund may be considered for use to further state and federal projects or pro grams, designated under the ESL program, that are designated to protect, conserve, and enhance to conserve the resource and our partnership will You have concern that we might spend this will still only use Rogers improve the quality of life for our citizens and visitors that want to enjoy Rogers Bayport Pier damaged by Herminephoto by Hernando County Gov. in Hernando District BROOKSVILLE The Hernando County School Family Resource Center May 25th at 11:00 1:00 p.m. The Family Resource Center is located on the campus of Moton Elementary School and was created with funds from the Schools of Hope grant from the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE).

May 25th at 11am 1 pm 7175 Emerson Road Brooksville, FL 34601 By LISA MACNEIL STAFF WRITER At the regular Brooks ville City Council meet ing on May 7, 2018, the council voted 3-2 to approve amendments to the future land use map, and elements of the citys Comprehen sive Plan regarding a 440 acre property to be zoned Planned Devel opment Project (PDP), designated as the MilkA-Way Farms Mixed Use Development District (MFMUDD). The sprawling property with scattered live oaks, was once a dairy farm. The now dilapidated where they sold ani mal feed to the public. The amendment would allow for 999 dwelling units and 50,000 square feet of non-residential of multi-use trails and recreational areas. The propertys south west corner is east of Broad Street and north of Croom Road. Its current designation is Commercial, Residen tial, Rural and Con servation (Hernando County). The irregu larly-shaped footprint spans as far east as Javelin Road, and north to unincorporated areas near Jacobsen Road. The stated 999 dwelling units was decided upon to avoid the designation of Development Regional Impact (DRI). A DRI designation would come with additional changes to the Com prehensive Plan, and a more in-depth rezoning process required by the state. A conceptual map showing the intended area of homes, parks and other planned areas was not shown during the May 7th meeting, but is expected in future meetings. The residen tial and other building areas are planned for the northwest section of the property. City Planner Steve Gouldman began the presentation to the council, describing the area and intended changes. Before devel opment begins, area will be studied, at the developers expense. A variety of city and county parks are near the property, and parks are to be built into the plan as well. Problems exist with the property being within an A / E this, the developer will need to meet Southwest Florida Water Manage ment District (SFWMD) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requirements. The Hernando County School Board calculates that the new plan will generate 412 students, though an age and grade breakdown wasnt available, Brooksville Elementary would be over capacity, and the developer would need to resolve the overage. Moton Elementary is the adjacent school district that could be considered. Council Member Natalie Kahler calculated 318 students Development plans for Milk-A-Way Farms property in Brooksville

MAGLIO STAFF WRITER Last week the county sent out information on a proposed garbage rate change to bring added service. The press release states, The Hernando County Board of County Commis sioners will hold a public hearing on May 22, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. in the Hernan do County Government Center located at 20 N. Main Street in Brooksville to consider changing the billing method and rate for solid waste collection. If approved, solid waste col lection for residents living in the mandatory area will no longer be billed on their water bill; instead, they would be billed annually on their property tax bill. In addition, the rate would increase from $8.18 to $13.27 monthly. The total billed on the property tax would be $172.80. The chart below was included in the notice. The notice continues, The rates for the non-mandatory areas of the County (everything except the City of Brooks ville and the mandatory area in Spring Hill) would increase to $13.49 per month and would continue to be billed directly with Republic Services. As part of this pro posed change, residents would receive one new 96-gallon, two-wheeled cart that will be used for collection. The carts will be picked up with a new, specialty side-loader truck to provide a better level of service. Chairman Champion of County Commissioners meeting, There was no reference to the fact that we already have a signed contract. We already had a meeting a year agothat this was already decided as far as the rates go. So now weve got citi zens in an uproar out there because they dont know whats going on. Deputy Administrator the contract was amended with Republic on July 25, 2017 which extended the contract for a seven year period, establishes new rates and places the fees on the tax bill for the man datory area of the county (Spring Hill). Chairman Champion stated that the city of Brooksville pays $20 per month and surrounding counties are around $17$18 per month. The negotiated contract was a very good deal. Whether Republic is delivering or not, thats a whole other argument. the $150,000 and were working towards resolving that. From the latest report it looks like it is improv ingof course its not perfect yet, commented Champion. Rogers stated that the Public hearing only procedural, will not set rates. Contract has already been signed and rates nalized. WISCON CORTEZ SUNCOAST COUNTY LINE RD BARCLAY ANDERSON SNOW COMMERCIAL WAY SHOAL LINE letter that went out was meant to inform of another public hearing on the matter. He said the hearing is a procedural step to change how its being billed from a monthly water bill to being placed on your tax bill. If youre in a non-mandatory areayoull continue billing with Republic, but the rate will be increasing. The county is now monitoring Republics performance on a monthly basis. Rogers stated that they are improving and the county is working with them to ensure that they get to a satisfactory point for the countys citizens. He apologized for the letters miscommunica tion. The communication on said Holcomb, everyone thought they were getting double taxed for their trash. The reason were going from the water bill to the tax rolls is basically because our citizens have been cheating this compa ny to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars, explained Holcomb.

Happy Mothers Day Greetings in 3-DIncreasingly, 3-D technology is a part of our everyday lives. If your family has ever watched a 3-D movie, youve seen objects seemingly float off the screen, and 3-D printers are now making body parts and car parts. Enjoy creative time together wishing mom, grandmother, a special aunt or friend a happy Mothers Day on May 13 with this playful 3-D greeting. Adding the third dimension of depth to a usually flat craft project is a no-tech entrance for kids into the 3-D world using the simplest of household basics: corrugated cardboard from an empty box, scissors, paint and markers. The unique greeting uses a clever construction technique where the kids assemble two identical interlocking pieces theyve designed themselves to give the creation an exciting added dimension. Get started by making a 3-D flower bloom or shrub in three easy steps. Use the same steps to make other objects, if you prefer. 1. On a piece of cardboard from a box approximately 7 inches by 10 inches, sketch a simple flower bloom, shrub or cactus shape growing out of a clay pot. (For extra fun in making the shrub/cactus design, have your child wear a mitten and place her hand on the cardboard. Trace around the mitten to create the shrub/cactus shape.) 2. Cut out the drawing. (An adult may have to help with this step.) 3. Trace the original cutout shape onto another piece of cardboard and cut out the second shape. Color with markers or paint both sides of each cutout, making them look as similar as possible. 4. Mark the center point on the sur face of each cutout. On one piece, cut a 1/8-inch slit (or as wide as the thickness of the cardboard) starting at the top of the object and going down to that mark. On the other, cut a slit from the bottom of the flowerpot going up. Slide one piece onto the other. 5. Write a Happy Mothers Day message directly on the 3-D greeting, such as My love for you grows and grows. Place on a breakfast in bed tray or at the table on her day. If your child is making and sending one in the mail to another family member or friend, add a little note telling the recipient to slide one piece into the other for the 3-D greeting. *** Donna Ericksons award-winning series Donnas Day is airing on public television nationwide.

King Features Weekly ServiceApril 30, 2018 BY SAMANTHA GRENROCK, GRENROSA@UFL.EDU People arent the only ones headed to Floridas beaches right now. May 1 the sea turtle nesting sea son, and beachgoers can take steps to help turtles be successful, said Maia Mc Guire, a Sea Grant agent with the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension. Sea turtles are coming to beaches to lay their eggs, which they bury high up on the beach. All sea turtle species that are found in U.S. waters are federally listed as either threatened or endangered. Three of these sea turtle species nest regularly in Florida, so making sure the newborn turtles are able to reach the ocean helps con serve these species, said McGuire, who coauthored a book on sea turtles for young readers called One in a Thousand: Those Amazing Sea Turtles. Here are a few tips to help give sea turtles safe passage to the water. If you encounter an adult or newborn sea turtle, leave it be. Mother sea turtles coming ashore have a hard road ahead of them, and interactions with humans make it even harder. Because all sea turtles are protected, people need to be very careful not to do anything that might inter fere with their behavior. If people see an adult turtle crawling up or down the beach, they should leave it alone, McGuire said. If people are concerned about the turtle if it seems to be injured or dead they should contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, McGuire said. Because of their small size and the threat of predators, newborn sea journey over the sand and to the ocean. If people spot sea turtle hatchlings emerging from a nest, they should keep other people, and especially pets, out of the baby turtles' way. Adult turtles typically lay their eggs at night, Mc Guire said. Shining lights on or near the turtle could disturb the turtle and cause it to abandon its nesting When baby sea turtles Hernando Youth Orchestra Concert The concert, which will include tea and refreshments, will be held May 13 at 3 pm in the historic Wom en's center at 131 South Main Street in downtown Brooksville. 3rd Annual Kentucky Derby Mothers Day Tea When: Sat, May 12, 11am Sun, May 13, 3pm Where: 103 S Saxon Ave, Brooksville, FL 34601 Description: 3rd Annual MAY 12TH & 13TH 2018 Kentucky Derby Mothers Day Grab your hats and place your bets!

It's sea turtle nesting time ...and you can help emerge from the nest, their number one goal is to get to the ocean as fast as they can, McGuire said. Turtles usually leave the nest at night and orient themselves to the ocean by If there are lights that shine onto the beach, the baby turtles might head in the wrong direction and put themselves in dan ger, McGuire explained. Reducing light around beaches helps ensure the turtles crawl toward the sea. Beach visitors can make the journey from the nest to the ocean easier for nesting mother turtles and their hatchlings by clearing the way for them, McGuire said. The fewer obstacles the turtles encounter, the easier it is for them to get to and from the water. So when you leave the beach, remove beach chairs and umbrellas, and level sand moved around by building sandcastles or digging holes, she said.

The gopher tortoise is a representative of the genus Gopherus, which contains the only tortoises native to North America. Gopher tortoises are a federally protected species. Current Florida state regulations clearly indicate that it is illegal to handle or disturb gopher tortoises or to bother their burrows.

Cobras playo game Central pitcher Matthew Voda watches runner on second The teams shake hands after the game. Hernando team which has consistently given NCT the Sharks survived a brutal third inning (more on that below) to deny the Leopards the glory, winning 6-3 and securing a third straight district championship for the school. Nature Coast starter Jonny McMath was cred ited with the win, while Dylan Mulyck recorded a three-inning save. For Hernando, their freshman starter Dylan Duphily was credited with the loss. Nature Coast head coach Frank Vitale, in the win, but wouldnt leave out credit to the opponent. Hernando has been a tough opponent for us, and were a tough opponent for them. Our matchups are always competitive from start to with the most depth won. The scoring started ear ly for both teams. In the nior Anthony Urso laced a single and then scored on a double by sophomore third baseman Connor Morgan. Not wanting to be outdone, follow ing an opening walk by Duphily to senior center er, the undisputed team MVP for the Sharks, J.P. Gates, rocketed the third dead center for a two-run homer. When asked later about what he saw, Gates replied The pitch was a fastball, low and away, but the way I swung the bat resulted in the point of contact being right on the barrel. After a scoreless second inning, the third inning proved to be the turning point. In this inning, McMath unfortunately zone of the home plate umpire, as evidenced by the inning sequence going like this: four-pitch walk to Preston Black, six-pitch walk to Carson Lashley, eight-pitch strikeout to Duphily, four-pitch walk to Urso, Black scoring on a wild pitch, six-pitch walk to Morgan, six-pitch which scored Lashley, and a four-pitch pop out for David Hale Bronson. In total, McMath endured 38 pitches, which doubled his pitch count to that point. Following two more scoreless innings, the Sharks added two insur and one in the sixth, to put the game out of reach. The seventh inning for Hernando was the only instance for either team in which a one-two-three inning occurred. Because this was a dis trict championship game, both the Sharks and the Leopards are guaranteed entry into the FHSAA baseball tournament, Class 5A, Region II. The teams are on Tuesday night at 7:00, with the Sharks hosting the neigh boring district runner up Taylor Middle-High School Wildcats, while Hernando must travel to Orlando for a meeting with the Bishop Moore Hornets. If NCT and Her nando win, then a Sweet 16 matchup would be at NCT on May 15th, with a spot in the Elite Eight on the line. Anthony Urso picks off NCT's Brandon Frangione SHARKS HHS Coach Tim Sims

The next team we take a look at is Spring stead, which heads into its sixth season under the watch of head coach Mike of the top rushing attacks around and solidifying an already impressive stable of running backs. We now take a closer look at Springstead for this close up in spring prep football. Is it a little crowded in Not a bad problem to have with backs like Nathan Sims and Adrian Fribley lining up against opposing defenses. Both were key components to the Eagles' should see their respec tive workloads increase. Max O'Rourke should see plenty of time at the quarterback position, even though Sims showed signs of being able to play the position on an every down basis. Though Randy Morgan graduated, best believe Springstead still has one of the better back No team felt the impact of the FHSAAs new play ing as the runner-up to New Port Richey Mitchell in Class 6A, District 6, the Eagles were left out in the cold of not qualifying for the Class 6A post season. The importance of winning the district is now more important than ever, with that being the only way to guarantee a berth in the postseason. It should be no surprise that the Eagles will have a chip on their shoulders all throughout the spring and heading into summer workouts. If theres one thing not lacking, motiva tion should be it. Springstead linebacker Adrian Cabrera came onto the prep football scene in 2017 as a sophomore on a mission. Cabrera was one of the top lineback ers in Hernando County, racking up 114 tackles playing in the middle and he will be counted on once again to make sure runners think twice before running up the middle. At 6-foot, 200-plus pounds, Cabrera has the ideal size at his position along with good speed and tackling ability. Hell head up a defensive unit that com piled 17 sacks and seven interceptions last fall. The Eagles found themselves a starter in Cabrera.

We take a closer look at Weeki Wachee. was one of the top yard gaining units in all of Hernando County, aver aging around 350 yards per game. Much of that was surrounded around the talents of quarterback Vaughn Sykora, who heads into his junior cam paign. Sykora had a solid 2017 season throwing the football, completing 53 of 122 pass attempts for 871 yards and 10 touchdowns. He'll need to cut down on his interceptions (17) if the Hornets look to take the next step as a unit. new favorite target in the passing game, with Shaun Young graduating. If there's anyone just as important as Sykora is back Sebastian Class. The quick running back to taled just over 1,400 yards proved he can take on the workload. The Hornets lose Diante Thomas on switch back to Class, but the senior should have no problems carrying more on his shoulders. Class averaged an impressive 144 yards per game at an average of 9.5 yards per carry. Expect Class to eclipse those numbers this fall, with Weeki Wachee working a lot on the run game this spring. Weeki Wachee's defense wasn't able to get to the opposing team's quar terbacks very much last but something Gray's unit was able to excel in was forcing turnovers. The passes and recovered six fumbles a year ago and that opportunistic defense will need to come up huge once again to give Weeki possessions. Defensive back Amar Walker, who notched two interceptions last fall, is back in the sec ondary and he'll be joined on defense by Trenton Pisarski and Klebert Charles.

Sarah added that about 90 percent in the book is true but added a little poetic license about Clyde who is nave in the ways of the world but gains deep insights into human nature while accompanying a group of travelers. The book conveys Nachins philosophy that one should try and challenging situation and she hopes that people of story entertaining, as well as informative. Sarah explained she wrote it for people who enjoy traveling and also enjoy a smidgen of humor and that her central message is that we should all maintain a positive attitude when faced with challenging situations and always have a sense of humor. Adults and young adults will enjoy the humor and the interesting information about the places that Clyde and his human companions visited, she said. And enjoy the illustrations and the fantasy elements. She also said, its an ideal tool for teachers to instruct their students in geography and history in a fun way. Sarah has published two other books Or dinary Heroes in 2001 which is a collection of true stories told to her by U.S. military veter ans from the World War II, Korea, Vietnam and Desert Storm eras. I wanted to write for a contest on Chicken Soup for the Veterans Soul, she said. So my sister encouraged me to go to my dads reunion and speak to some of the Vets there. Thats how she started her book Ordinary Heroes. book to be really special, so I went and talked to various Vets organiza tions in Spring Hill and Brooksville and talked to so many Veterans that it blossomed into 30 something, amazing real-life stories, she said. My story didn't make it into Chicken Soup for the Soul, but I met so many wonderful people that I've started writing a sequel. I also co-authored The Long Journey with Felicia McCranie pub lished in 2012, she said. It tells about Felicia growing up in the Phil ippines and then coming to the United States and facing new challenges in her life.

Network with other writ ers and get their opinions and take advantage of their experiences. Sarah explained that the most challenging part for her about writing was maintaining mo mentum and not getting sidetracked with other pursuits. Also living up to my own high standards that I have for myself. I'm somewhat of a perfection ist, she said. There are several local writers groups in Hernan do County that aspiring writers can tap into. One meets at the library on Spring Hill Drive on the second and fourth Saturdays of the month at 1 p.m. The other is one I started with another writer. We meet every Saturday at 2 p.m. Another good resource is Facebook Writers Groups. I encourage you to write, said Sarah. The most rewarding things about being a writer are expressing my feelings and ideas. Seeing an idea that I had in my head come to life as I write it down and develop it into a story. Asked what the most important idea she is shar ing in her books to add value to the readers life, Sarah said, To keep an open mind about life and enjoy the journey. New books that Sarah is working on include a selfhelp book to be published by the end of the year. Another is an historical novel set in the 1950's and 1960's. I also have an out novella and hope to start on a sequel to Ordinary Heroes soon. In that book, Sarah will be interviewing the younger generation of Veterans, as well as more of the Korea and Viet nam-era Vets.

Conser vation is managing the use of limited resources. Sustainability focuses on how we can manage indefinitely in a world with finite resources by leveraging things that are practically infinite, or that can be regener ated. Sustainability also relates to protecting the world that we have so our resources will not be depleted or damaged in such a way that we can no longer rely on them. There are two major barriers to adopting sus tainable living practices: economics and conve nience. Of the two, the bigger issue is our desire for convenience. Many of us tend to want things that are very easy to use as well as things that we can buy or have deliv ered right away. When making smart buying choices for virtu ally anything, we should consider the Concentric Circles of Sustainabil ity, a term coined by Keith Voyles of South ern Charm Building and Construction. The Concentric Circles of Sustainability is a way of thinking, buying, and building that focuses on finding the best materi als and goods as close to home as possible. When there are no reasonable local options, then we expand our search to a slightly wider radius to find what we need. We continue this process until we have the best solution for what we need to accomplish at any given time. Consider the case of buying food from a local farm as opposed to that produced in industrial settings. My wife and I enjoy getting fresh and canned goods from Frazier Farms. By doing this, we believe that we are getting healthier foods while supporting a local business and workers. We also save transportation costs on our food, and by using our own canvas bags, we avoid excessive packaging and the use of plastics. Our Concentric Circle of Sustainabili ty in this case is quite small. Considering other items for our home, we will need to look farther away. For example, we are looking to purchase new appliances. Be sides looking for the Energy Star rating, our intention is to buy appliances made in the United States whenever possible. This allows us to support American workers while also keep ing our carbon footprint lower due to fewer trans portation miles. Building or remodel ing a home has a more complicated set of decisions. According to Keith Voyles, there are upwards of two thousand decisions that owners make when building a home. Broadly, these include the types of materials used, how they are sourced, and the impact they have on the health of our families and community. In this case, the Concentric Circles of Sustainability work in a different way: how do our decisions and actions impact our home environment first, then the community, and Decisions made about how water, power, and waste are to be handled highlight these Concen tric Circles of Sustain ability. For example, instead of using water for lush lawns, we may want to consider Florida natural landscaping. We may also think about using edible landscaping. Okra, for example, is a member of the Hibiscus family. Besides having pret ty flowers, it also has those wonderful pods used in local cuisine. By reducing potable water consumption, we can conserve for times when we are in shorter supply, decreasing demand for distribution and ulti mately cost. Making sustain able buying and living choices can be complex. Dont get overwhelmed. Doing something is better than doing noth ing. Start with making simple life changes that can impact your health, happiness, and finances. Once you have mastered those, then move on to bigger things. If you are planning a major project, make sure you speak with sustainability ex perts, so you can benefit from their wisdom, and enjoy the confidence of having made a positive impact in your home and in the world.

Traditionally, camp ing means roughing it in the woods, experiencing nature, swimming in lakes, and sitting around a that. What people dont realize is, while doing that, children are also meeting new people, learning to function as a team mem ber, having new experi ences that challenge them, gaining independence, taking responsibility, and even experiencing caring for others. Lets not forget they all unplug for a week, interacting face to face and learning communication skills. Finally, they are accepted for who they are and included as part of the ences you as a parent may know about.

When I take to the woods, I have a purpose for being there which goes far beyond trying to tear up the trails and a vehicle. Im usually either hunting or scouting new hunting spots and am out in the forests very of ten and lately, Im having many opportunities to meet folks because they keep getting stuck or broken down and need me to pull them out. onto the main grade and a ride back to whichever mud or sand pit theyre hung up on before pulling them free with my old Chevy. So, I thought Id put a bit of advice here for anyone who may be con driving. Get a shovel: This can be any kind of shovel that wont break when you need to dig out mud, sand, snow, or rocks from around your truck. Youd be surprised just how much work a good shovel will save you. Bring along a Hi-Lift jack: No matter what type of rig you have, it is too heavy for you to move when you get it stuck. A Hi-Lift will give you the mechanical advantage you need to push, pull, or lift your truck back onto the trail. No other single tool is as versatile and valuable as a Hi-Lift Jack and I wont leave the pavement without it. And surely, youll want a tow strap: These things are like jumper cables as youll need someone elses vehicle to make them work. But, you stand a much better chance of getting someone to help your own. Dont waste your money on cheap noname straps, and dont take chances with old frayed ones either. Go ahead and spend the extra few dollars for quality. Obviously, its best not to get stuck to begin with, so try to avoid driving through ruts made by someone with taller tires or risk getting your frame bedded nicely and youll be in for a good long dig. Dont stop forward progress once committed, as driving through mud is part traction and part propulsion, so keep wheel speeds high. Sawing the steering wheel left and right while applying the throttle will clean mud from your tires and often allow you to get a better grip, just know that this same technique is also great for snapping U-joints. Once stuck, In some cases it may be easier to jack up the truck material such as logs or rocks under the tires. And another suggestion, buy a Wildlife Manage ment Area Stamp. Hunters are the only ones legally required to possess a stamp to use the public lands, but purchase one anyway and the upkeep on our beautiful properties. As always, if you have any feedback, suggestions or even just want to share a good hunting story, give me a shout at toby@her nandosun.com. God bless and good hunting!

During the 37 years he was the religion editor he won numerous awards including the Supple Memo of the reporting of religion news. He now lives in Brooksville, FL. Dsensitizing your child through teasing Traditional Realist Almost everyone likes to be com plemented although there are some who never learn to accept comple ments with grace. More commonly most of us do not like to be put down by anyone. It can become a serious issue especially if one shows others that teasing greatly aggra vates them. A negative reaction to being kidded or verbally attacked bull. Many instigators enjoy getting person as a form of superior verbal fencing with each other. The greater ones reaction is to being teased; the more others will note the persons vulnerability to this game. One after the other will jump into this negative interaction possibly to be befriended by the dominant will be unmercifully attacked by most of the others although occasionally a youngster might act as a good knight protecting the weaker child. From the beginning of time these types of annoying incidents have happened in every culture all over the world. It is part of human nature to spar to dominate over others by verbal and physical means. This is also seen in young animals hissing and knocking each other down in a playful way. It is a necessary stage of developing the skills to survive in the wild. Learning how to unemo tionally handle personally perceived skill in a civilized society. Several generations ago many mothers took a more proactive ap proach to assist their child in dealing with put-downs by giving them in struction through riddles, sticks and stones can break your bones but names can never harm you. The child understood after these talks, if someone called him a pink elephant, it did not make the child one. Anoth er phrase to protect a child is I am rubber and you are glue, everything to you. These tactics help some children stand up to others without breaking down in anger or tears. Currently too many mothers believe their child cannot defend himself. They see their child as a perennial victim who needs to be protected by the parents. This lack of faith in the childs ability to stand up for himself can be reversed by pa rental preparation. Parents are key in training their children to appropri ately respond in these types of ver bal exchanges and desensitize them to ludicrous and insensitive remarks. In the past most men were less than PC with their children in order to toughen them up. High self-esteem was a non-issue but a child being able to handle himself reasonably with insensitive children was. These fathers often assessed when the child did not do his best and said, It is horrible, do it over. You are an embarrassment to our family, and other insensitive but common statements. Fathers understood that sensitivity toward peer remarks was a self-defeating tactic. These fathers trained their children to develop a of others. At that time both parents knew sensitivity. How they feel about a statement directed at them and more importantly how others are feeling. remarks about oneself should be desensitized while the sensitivity to others feelings is the great gift of empathy that should be enhanced. This distinction has been muddled. Parents need to emphasize the responses. Sensitivity to the feel ings of the less fortunate should be encouraged while being sensitive to every nasty remark directed at them should be ignored or played-down. Today too many modern adults are trying to short circuit the growing up trials and tribulations by intervening in the process supposedly to protect the child from unnecessary pain. These parents unfortunately are misguided and certainly unwise. By preventing their child from honing the skills needed to deal with other Mothers have changed, so has their holiday Variegated Cardegin In my early days at Ex work, a customer handed me a plant and wanted to know all about it. I told her I didnt know anything except what the little card stuck in the dirt there said. She asked, Why dont I told her, Because I didnt go to gardening school. And thats true. Oh, I tried to memorize a gave it up. I only accept ed the job in Garden to But I did develop a kind of routine with cus tomers concerning such questions. For a while I had a perennial answer to that perennial question, Me: No, maam, thats a perennial. Cus: Oh. But it says annual on the little card. I wondered; and said, Its an annual up north, but down here its a pe rennial. Cus: Ohhh... I also made fun of the word variegated. It seemed every version of a plant with a streak of new color not green had that word in its name. Cus: Excuse me, whats the name of this Me: Thats a Variegat ed Pansy. Cus: Oh. But it says Viola on the little card. I wondered; and said, Yes maam, thats the common name, but the uncommon name is Var iegated Pansy. Cus: Ohhh... I likewise attached that word to aspects of Garden life. To operate heavy equipment we had to wear a safety vest, and when the only one I could ious oils and grease, plant juice and dirt, and sweat and sometimes footprints, I called it (you guessed it) a variegated vest. especially dirty with potting mixes and plant remains, one of us would Yep, its an entirely I guess we need to sweep. Yep. One day in the Yard we discovered patches of mold growing inside the bags of play sand. When did we get asked. I dont know, my fellow worker replied. Well, the black really said. We always had a prob lem with skyrats nesting in the rafters on the patio. Over and again I would pull a grill or patio set down and the top of the box was covered with bird poop. I would ask, Hey, what are all these white and My fellow worker would say, Thats the new variegated card board. Its the latest thing. Ah, well, I said, that variegation there is cover ing part of the UPC. (Thats a joke we told to each other, not to cus tomers.) I even used that word at home once. I decided to experiment with my fathers chili recipe by throwing in a handful of parsley. My wife took a bite and asked, Whats that odd See those specks of Its variegated chili. Ohhh.... Well, I dont like it. Yes, and I wont do it again. My point is that hired hands are not experts in what the store sells. The vast number of products, even those in one depart ment, is so many and so ever changing that any pretense to expertise is laughable. Each worker knows something about something, but none of them can master the spec GOOFY STUFF By VINCENT CARDEGIN Like most of our holidays, Mothers Day began with a major religious connotation that has been largely overtaken by commercialism. Todays celebrations also have been Throughout the world, women are having fewer children. Fertility rates have dropped in the past 50 years from 4.5 births per woman to 2.5 per woman. In the U.S, men and women are marrying at later ages from the av erage age of 20 to 27 for brides over the past 50 years and from almost 23 to just over 29 for grooms. Consequently, birth rates have dropped for women under age 30 and have risen among women aged 30-44. But births out-of-wedlock have risen to more than half (53 percent) for women under 30. Even more striking is the fact that today, only 46 percent of families with children under 18 years of age Some 15 percent of families have two parents in a remarriage situation. In seven percent of two parent situations, it is a cohabiting arrangement. In 26 percent of the cases, there is a single parent. Five percent of children have no parent in their life. All of those developments have attitudes toward a celebration of the role of mothers which some historians have suggested stem from the ancient Greek spring festivals honoring the maternal goddess Rhea, wife of Cro nus and the mother of many deities in Greek mythology. Romans later notoriously celebrated the spring festival Hilaria dedicated to the mother goddess, Cybele. Through later centuries, Catholic Christians have observed feast days honoring Mary, the mother of Jesus. The principal ones are the Feast of the Immaculate Conception in De cember, the Feast for Mary, Mother of God in January, and the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in August. The modern observance probably took root in the 1870s when Julia Ward Howe, famed author of the words to The Battle Hymn of the Republic, advocated for a June date to honor mothers especially as supporters of peace. But the woman who brought the cel ebration to fruition was herself single. Anna Marie Jarvis was the ninth of 11 children of Ann Maria (Reeves) and Granville E. Jarvis on May 1, 1864, in Webster, West Virginia. t was her mothers church and com munity life that inspired the daughter to have careers in public education, banking, insurance and a taxi business as well as a strong faith of her own. After her mothers death three years earlier, Anna Marie organized a memo rial service in the Andrews Methodist Episcopal Church where they both had been active. The May 10th, 1908, event was a service honoring not only her mother but all mothers. Miss Jarvis said it was in response to a prayer by her mother at the end of a Sunday School class many years earlier: I hope and pray that someone, sometime, will found a memorial mothers day commemorating her for the matchless service she renders to entitled to it. Encouraged by the response to the service which featured white carna its symbolism of a mothers pure love, Miss Jarvis and her supporters began the country and by 1911 nearly every state was holding Mothers Day cere monies. It was on May 8, 1914, that President Woodrow Wilson signed a designating the second Sunday in May as Mothers Day. Before her death in 1948, she sought to rescind the holiday desig nation because she felt the nursery, confection and greeting card industries had commercialized it to such an ex real sentiment had been lost. Outside the home, it still is the church where the day is most cel ebrated. Even there, much of the observance has become routine and somewhat trite with recognition of the oldest mother and the one with the most children. Yet Gods word, as it comes to us in the Bible, says it should be otherwise. In the 31st chapter of Proverbs the good woman who is a wife and mother is described as worth far more than diamonds. She is called trust worthy, always faces tomorrow with a smile, speaks kindly and when she does has some thing worthwhile to say, a skillful and diligent worker, quick to help anyone in need. She keeps an eye on every one in her household and keeps them all busy and productive. Her children respect and bless her, her husband joins in with words of praise(because) the woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the fear of God. Give her everything she deserves!

Good luck, parents, in making everything a federal case that might hurt your childs feelings. The child will become a whiner, being everything. Some parents even confront another child without their parent being and rational approach is for the parent to help their child become mentally tougher in order to deal with putdowns from other people. Parents teasing and jok ing with their child assists the child in developing a tougher skin to shield him against verbal put-downs by others. By desensitizing statements and giving the child an opportunity to un remark should be taken with a grain of salt, the child becomes immunized from breaking down in these stressful situations. It provides the child with main in control of the verbal battle. This parental training fosters emotional maturity that also leads to greater appreciation for unfortunate children who cannot defend themselves. Parental emotional training is a wonderful gift to help their children better parts of social reality. ADON TAFT

MAGLIO Hernando Sun Staff Writer 4-H youth are likely familiar with this concept. husbandry was recently on display at the 4-H Youth Livestock Competition during the Annual Hernan do County Fair which fea tured rabbit, poultry, swine and steer competitions. The Cloverbuds Competi tion for children ages 5 7, is neither judged or scored, but aims to introduce the concept of recognition for animal husbandry, award ing participation ribbons only. For the older children, the competition process is rigorous and thorough. Scores are based on a num ber of standards. In the rabbit and poultry compe titions, standards are set by the The American Rabbit Breeders Association (ARBA) and the American Poultry Association (APA). It has to do with size, weight, length of ears, color, body type, head size, and so much more. The animals are given ribbons based not only on these standards but the general care, condition, and groom ing of the animal. Once the ribbons are declared by the judge, s/he chooses class winners (classes are by age and gender) and then from those, a grand and a reserve grand for the show. These are the animals that are the closest to the ideal stan dards, are well presented in condition and grooming, and show the most promise for continuing the charac teristics of the breed, ex plained Nancy A. Moores, 4-H Youth Development Agent III. Questions are asked of each competitor relating to health of the animal, determining gender and if their answers, points are awarded. Steer are judged on Moores explained, This is a market animal going di rectly to slaughter and will be a food product in some ones home. Therefore, the judge is making sure it is for consumption. While we do not have the ability to see inside, the judge uses his hands to feel for things such as the rib area (rib eye) and such. They are very experienced in the skills of judging an animal while still on the hoof. In the showmanship category, judges look for how well the competitor handles the steer, maintaining the the animals assets. While Moores says to show swine, they are judged similar to steer. For both steer and swine, ques tions are asked in relation to the meat industry, cuts of meat and values of certain cuts. Judges expect compet itors to show their swine Moores explains that its, about keeping the animal moving, the head up and the length of loin, shoul der and butt, as well as the framing of the animal. You are supposed to keep it moving in front of the judge but far enough away that s/he can see the entire pig in one view. Never put yourself between the pig and the judge and use your equipment to settle the animal and keep it moving but never strike the animal hard. As you can see, there are lot of concepts and techniques for these kids to master in order to success fully raise livestock and compete in youth livestock shows. Resources are available for guidance at Animal Sciences. There are a variety of projects listed to teach children about raising animals for the agricultural industry. You can also contact our Hernando County 4-H Youth Development Agent Nancy Moores at (352) 754-4433 ext 2. With summertime just around the corner, this could be a great way to keep your child engaged and learning while not in school. Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute most to real wealth, good morals, and happiness. omas Jeerson Above: BSFFA Chapter Steer Team Ethan Watler Savannah Foley Jourdan Cunningham Nathanael Monroe Lane Goodwin Hunter Fraccica Greyson Volberg Westin Fenimore Hunter Fraccica
