Lisa MacNeil created a database for our circu lation records, which she is still had to keep exact records of the numbers of newspapers dropped Going forward, the data gath ering should be faster since the infrastructure is now in place. Each quarter we are required to submit a circulation ledger to AAM and we will only be audited once every two years. The audit focused on our print circulation. We had to provide a breakdown of our distribution according to zip code for one is sue, a 3 month circulation ledger, a paid subscriber mailing list, random subscriber records, billing details, Newspaper in Education The tedious task will hopefully We are now in the AAM database. National marketing agency AAM members can access the database in order to plan their clients advertising campaigns.

The analysis by Third Way, a Washington, D.C.based think tank, used newly reported federal data to track a time, full-time Pell stu dents in 1,566 four-year institutions across the country, including pub lic and private schools. As colleges contin ue to bill themselves as mobility machines for students, this new data lets us (home) in on how well institu tions are serving Pell students, who need the economic security of a college degree the most, the report said. The Third Way ana lysts found a majority of the four-year public and private schools nation ally do not serve Pell students well and that the six-year graduation rate for Pell students is 18 percent lower than for non-Pell students at those institutions. We already know we have a completion crisis in higher education --and this new data shows us that this problem is even more acute for lowand moderate-in come students, the report said. Florida universities performed better than the national average. The 57 percent gradu ation rate for the 2010 group of Pell students in Florida schools was well above a national average of 49 percent for public institutions, although three schools were below the average: Florida A&M Univer sity, 39 percent; Florida Gulf Coast University, 41 percent; and the Uni versity of West Florida, 47 percent. An average gap of 5 percentage points between Pell and nonPell graduation rates in ly below the national average of 16 percent age points for public schools, according to the report. The largest gaps were at New College of Florida, 14 percentage points; Florida A&M, 8 percentage points; the University of Florida, 7 percentage points; Florida State University, 7 percentage points; and Florida Gulf Coast, 7 percentage points. On the positive side, the University of South Florida and Florida Atlantic University had higher graduation rates for their Pell students compared to non-Pell students. Florida Inter national University and the University of North Florida graduated Pell and non-Pell students at the same rate. The Third Way study put a particular focus on four-year institutions that serve large numbers of Pell students, who re ceived an average award of $3,740 last year. More than three-quar ters of those students came from families that earned $40,000 or less a the higher Pell institu tions as having at least 37 percent of their 2010 cohort receiving the federal aid. Under that crite a top-10 performing institution among the Pell-serving institu tions, graduating 68 percent of its Pell stu dents within six years, compared to 67 percent for non-Pell students. Forty-one percent of its 2010 cohort was on a Pell grant. Since 2009, student success has been a focus of the university as we sought to implement programming, practices and policies to support students on a timely and successful path to grad uation and fully prepare them for what lays beyond, Paul Dosal, a USF vice president, said in a statement. This student success move ment has been built on our fundamental belief that all students will succeed if given the opportunity. It is very satisfying knowing our initiatives are working. Florida International graduated 56 percent of its Pell students, while serving a cohort with 52 percent of the students on the federal aid pro gram. Florida Atlantic grad uated 51 percent of its Pell students, above its 49 percent graduation Pell Grant students trail in graduation rates The Hernando Sun newspaper completes circulation audit By LISA MACNEIL Staff Writer At the May 8, 2018 Board of County Com missioners (BOCC) reg ular meeting, the board voted unanimously to al low county workers with valid Concealed Weapon License, commonly known as a concealed carry to have their sion while conducting county business. Chair man Steve Champion began the discussion by reviewing his directive to Look at surrounding counties and the actions theyve had regarding policies that go above and beyond what the state law requires regarding concealed weapon holders. Champion, a propo nent of reducing regu lations in all areas said, Why do we need to restrict our law-abiding employees from hav ing their constitutional right? I believe we all swore on the bible, saying that we would defend the constitution of the United States, and the constitution of Florida. I tend to uphold that. I think we need to do whats right ... Were not advocat ing for anything its an individual decision, individual right, and you need to know the law, and thats why you go through training, thats why you get your permit. You have to acknowledge that you know the law, and if you dont know the law, you probably shouldnt carry a weapon. Human Resources Di rector Christy Charlow described the changes to the Workplace Violence Policy, which was modelled after Okaloosa, Lake and Polk counties. Added to the policy is language that the very nature of the concealed carry law is that a licensee does not reveal that they are armed. Champion add ed that Concealed Carry Licensees still cannot take their weapons into prohibited areas such as courthouses and post make any exclusions to the current law. Holcomb gave a brief list of events that led to the American Revo lution. The colonists knew what was going on with that king, so they knew what they needed to do to protect them selves and they wrote that second amendment, to deal with tyrannical kings. He went on to cite modern applications of the second amend ment, giving the policy change his full support. Commissioner John Allocco stated he is one-hundred-percent in favor of the second amendment, but had questions about the policy and concerns for primarily code enforce ment and emergency services. I dont want employees to be put into a situation where the county wont be liable but (the employee) will be, and they lose their career because of something they werent aware of. Champion answered, Thats not our responsi bility. Its your respon sibility as a concealed weapons holder, and this policys been in place since 1791. If youre in out if you can carry or not. He stated again that the county and its management is not ad vocating for employees to carry weapons, but it is removing county pol icies that prevent legal license holders in doing so where it is currently legal. To Champions point, Hernando county resi dent Cherie Miller said, Youre asking me to assume that a county employee who shows up on my property with a gun is a good guy with a gun. I dont have any proof or evidence of that. Commission er Allocco added that a property owner is within their rights to ask anyone to refrain from carrying weapons on three amendments in the bill of rights are not there to give privileges to citizens. Those are amendments to tell the government what its not allowed to do. e rst three amendments in the bill of rights are not there to give privileges to citizens. ose are amendments to tell the government what its not allowed to do. Commissioner John Allocco County loosens restrictions on where employees with a concealed weapon license can carry See PELL, Page 3

The injunction states that the defendant cannot knowingly or willingly come within 300 feet of Keiths residence. The defendants residence is the property next to Keiths. During my previous encounter with the defendant she advised that she knew she cannot trav el in front of Keiths residence without violating the injunction; however, on this day she did willingly. The defendant also advised that she knew she could not drive do to a sus pended license and on this day she did willingly as well. I then observed the defendant to back her vehicle into her driveway and exit the vehicle at which time the defendant was later taken into custody at her residence and transported to the Hernando County Deten tion Center without incident.

Court records show that 46-year-old Frederik Barbieri of Port St. Lucie pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy and unlicensed export of defense items. Barbieri faces up to 25 years in prison when he is sentenced in July. Federal prosecutors say one shipment traced to Barbieri that was inter cepted in Brazil contained 30 AK-47 and AR-15 concealed in four water heaters. The gun serial numbers were obliterated. Authorities say records later revealed dozens of shipments of other water heaters, air conditioning units and electric motors capable of concealing ary search of his storage 2,000 rounds of ammuni tion. FLORIDA MAN State sues drug manufacturers, distributors News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE --Declaring that she wasnt scared to take them on, Florida Attor ney General Pam Bondi nations largest opioid manufacturers and four distributors of causing the opioid crisis that is killing an average 15 Floridians daily. We are very proud one of the most compre hensive lawsuits in the country on behalf of the state of Florida regarding the opioid crisis, Bondi, standing in the lunchroom of a recovery center in Tampa, said. Bondi, who is seeking to recover all measure of damages allowable, predicted a settlement with the defendants could be in the billions. Five other states lawsuits against drug maker Purdue Pharma, but Bondi called Floridas challenge one of the most comprehensive suits in the country. The lawsuit alleges that manufacturers Purdue; Endo Pharmaceuticals; Janssen Pharmaceuti cals; Cephalon, Inc.; and Allergan plc --and their related companies --and distributors Amerisource Bergen Drug Corpora tion; McKesson Corpo ration; Cardinal Health, Inc.; and Mallinckrod LLC violated the states unfair and deceptive prac tices laws and Floridas criminal racketeering laws. The manufacturers promoted misrepresenta tions about the use of opi oids to physicians, other prescribers, and consum ers that were designed to increase opioid prescrip tions and opioid use, the in Pasco County, reads. The lawsuit also ac cuses the manufacturing companies of using front organizations to promote opioids and of paying alleged medical experts, called key opinion lead ers, to publish articles that promoted the use of opioids to treat pain but omitted information regarding the risks. Other alleged miscon duct includes mislead ing veterans about the dangers of mixing opioids with benzodiazepine, a drug commonly pre scribed for post-traumatic stress disorder. Distributors are ac orders and failing to properly assess customers among other things. These dangerous acts and practices have devastating consequences as you all know, Bondi said. Its time the defen dants paid for the pain and the destruction they have caused. As the opioid crisis has worsened, hundreds of local governments around the country have already sued drug manufacturers. After trying to work out a settlement, a federal judge in Ohio last month announced plans to move ahead with three trials in 2019. Bondi, noting that Florida is the third largest state, said she wanted to pursue separate litigation. A bevy of law enforce Agriculture Commission er Adam Putnam, House Speaker Richard Corcor an, among others, joined Bondi for Tuesdays announcement regarding the legal action. Putnam, the leading Republican gubernato rial candidate, said he supports the lawsuit and to eradicate prescription drug abuse. Putnam said he has discovered a sad recur ring theme in his travels around the state. In every community, to the medical examiners the morgue. Thats how serious the opioid crisis is, he said, adding that proceeds from the lawsuit can be used to help fund treatment. But state Rep. Sean Shaw criticized Bon di, who has served for attorney general for eight years, for waiting too long to challenge the drug makers and distributers. Shaw, a Tampa Dem ocrat who is running to succeed Bondi as attorney general, called the lawsuit too little too late for the families in our state who have been devastated by a preventable epidemic had action been take years ago before we reached this tipping point. In 2016, heroin caused 952 deaths in Florida, fentanyl caused 1,390 deaths, oxycodone caused 723 deaths, and hydroco done caused 245 deaths, according to a legislative sure aimed at combatting opioid addiction. More than 4,000 babies were born addicted to opioids in Florida in 2016, an in crease of over 1,000 per cent from a decade ago, according to the Florida Department of Children and Families. Those statistics led Gov. Rick Scott last year to declare a public health emergency due to opioids. Earlier this year, lawmakers passed a bill that, among other things, places limits on prescriptions that doctors can write for treatment of acute pain. Doctors in many cases are limited to writing prescriptions for three-day supplies, though they can prescribe up to seven-day supplies of controlled substances if medically necessary. Cancer patients, people who are terminally ill, palliative care patients major trauma are exempt from the limits. Tuesday, Bondi enlisted Santa Rosa Beach-based Drake Martin Law Firm and Panama City-based Harrison, Rivard, Duncan & Buzzett --she worked response to the Deepwa ter Horizon oil spill. The litigation resulted in a $2 billion settlement. Name of Person who recommended The Hernando Sun to you, or by JULIE B.

The board elected to hold an in-theshade meeting, where they will discuss the order to increase school safety, expected to start at $22-million. Hernando County School District Super intendent Dr. Lori Ro mano doesnt see any way around the funding problem without a tax increase, and asked that the referendum be put on the November 2018 ballot. Speaking for the taxpayers, school board member Beth Narverud said The issue is, when will it stop? In 2012, voters approved a cent tax, however, those funds cannot be used legally for the new mandate. Every time we get money, we need more money. Vice Chair Linda Prescott is sure that the voters are aware of the problem. Every day, theres another shooting somewhere. Very sadly, this is doing the mar keting for us. Director of Finance & Purchasing Joyce McIn tyre along with Financial Advisor Brent Wilder of Public Financial Manage ment (PFM) presented funding options to the school board at the April 24, 2018 meeting. Wilder described the problem as a ... another unfunded mandate from the state, and went on to describe funding sources, and the There is $720,000 avail able to the county in the form of a state grant that the school board would need to apply for. Recent discussions with the Board of County Commissioners regarding School Resource duced the amount needed per year for the school improvements to be ap proximately $2.6-million per year, and at present, the county schools have around half of that amount available. To obtain funding, a Capital Outlay Millage of 1.50 mills would be considered. If the millage rate is increased for two years, the HCSB can use funds for capital or operat ing expenses. In order to increase the rate for four years, the board can use the funds for operational expenses only. Other funding sources rely on the increase of sales tax by to 1 cent. Impact fees and other referenda options are being considered as well. According to McIntyre, extending the cent sales tax over ten years will yield roughly $10.3-mil lion per year, totalling around $103-million. Considering millage rate increases, a 1 mill increase over four years would re sult in $38-million, and 2 mills would yield $76-mil lion. According to Wilder, it would be possible to renew a two-year millage rate at the end of the term, to allow for spending on capital expenses, which would fall under the pur view of the school safety initiative. Hernando County School District Superin tendent Dr. Lori Romano said that the Director of Safety and Security Bill Hall, along with local law enforcement assessed the schools under her direction after the Parkland shoot ing. Without giving de tails as Johnson cautioned earlier, the board discussed the publicly available list of improvements avail able including: securing entrances, checkpoint construction, lighting spe security, cameras, auto matic locks and locking devices, electronic security Options include a 1.5 mill capital outlay tax, increasing the sales surtax, or impact fees School Board discusses how to secure funding to improve school safety rfntrbbbfbtrftbb tbbbbnbbntbbbnnb bnbbnbttnbbtbnttb bbbbbnbbbnn btbnbntbnbb nbbbbbbbbnrfb bbbbnbbbbbnbb bbbntrbbbfbtbtbbnbb bbbbbbnbbnntrbbb fbtrfbbbtttttbbtbbrf rfrfrf rfrf rfrfrfbb bnnbbbnnbtbn nbttnbbttbbbb bnbnbbbbbnbb tbbbtrfnbt tbbnbbb bbtttbbbbbbnntbbtb bbbbbtttbbbn bbnbbbbbtbbnbbb tbtntbtbbbbb bntbbbtbnbt nbbbbnbbttbb tnbbbbbb bbb rfrnntbbr rrrnntbfbr nnt bbtbb bbn bbnb bn rfnbb tbbb r ffntbtb systems, fencing designed to prevent intruder entry into buildings and bul letproof glass. There are additional provisions in the mandate that allow for fur ther improvements when School Safety. The Florida Department of Education (DOE) will place to monitor the prog ress of school improve ments with regard to the safety items. Looking into the future, Chairman Johnson con sidered the new housing developments and growth of the county requiring at least one new school to be built, and posed the idea of waiting for the next leg if additional state funding may possibly be available. Romano said that in creasing taxes, especially during an election year is never a pleasant conversa tion, however she sees no other way to accomplish the states requirements. The deadline to get a ref erendum on the November ballot is June 22, 2018. Between now and that date, the board plans to survey other school dis tricts for ideas. Gus Gua dagnino cautioned We need to compare apples to apples. You cant go to a big county with a lot of money to compare (that) with what we have.

BY JOE CARLINO HERNANDO SUN WRITER PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALICE MARY HERDEN Over the last three seasons in Hernando County, high school baseball has begun a rejuvenation of sorts, and the constant in this equa tion is the Nature Coast Sharks. Whether it be their ability to hit the ball down defense, the team has dominated their com petition, which allowed them to host Taylor High School on Tuesday night in a FHSAA Class 5A, This would be a point where someone would say it wasnt enough and the Sharks lost, right? Wrong, and it involves one main benefactor: Sharks ace J.P. Gates. Using his trademark Clayton Kershaw pitch ing accuracy and Madi son Bumgarner strength, the senior Miami commit started with a modest single, then retired the next 16 and added a tworun no doubter to center defeat the Wildcats in Round One, 7-0. game with 12 strikeouts and only one walk, need ing 86 pitches to send the Sharks into the next round. The scoring started early for the home team, Zach Funkhouser leading seven-pitch walk (fol lowing an 0-2 count), and following two quick Brandon Frangione laced a single which scored him from second (he advanced on a swing ing strike the catcher couldnt hold onto). The next tally of runs came in the third inning, when Gates laced a sin gle to left, and then pinch runner Jayden Craw ford scored on another single by Frangione. Third baseman Brennan Cross would also score in the third, which saw Wildcats pitcher Bran don Neelys pitch count skyrocket from 37 to 70. Neelys night would end in the fourth following three straight hit batters, Rodriguez, would score center. inning and following a Funkhouser single, Gates saw from Wildcats re liever Lane Phillips and sent the pitch into orbit the night. Nature Coast head coach Frank Vitale, in was highly compli mentary of his entire teams performance: All season long, we have preached what I like to call daggers, which are hits with two outs. It prolongs the inning and gives us life. When asked about Gates play, Vitale said Hes been with us since he was a freshman, and ever since then he has put on performances like the one tonight.

Solution to Crossword on page 15 12 HERNANDO SUN hernandosun.com May 1824, 2018 SPORTS Hernando 16121 Commercial Way, Brooksville, FL 34614 May 18 26, 2018 BY ANDY VILLAMARZO HERNANDO SUN WRITER With prep spring foot ball in its third week of practices throughout the state of Florida, we take a closer look at each of Hernando Countys five programs in the weeks leading into the spring games. The next team we take a look at is Central, which heads into its first season under the watch of new head coach John Warren. The Bears finished 2-7 last season under the watch of former lead man Chris Sands, who stepped down to take the same position over at Eau Gallie High School. Central heads into the spring under Warren looking to create a new identity behind its new coach, with the team be ing primarily a run-ori ented club under Sands. The Bears have a lot of work to do if they look to compete within Class 5A, District 7 amongst the likes of Hernando and Nature Coast. We now take a closer look at the Central Bears this spring. Can Warren change the recent culture? There was nothing wrong with the Bears during Chris Sands time as head coach, but Cen year at 2-7 and the pro gram is looking to clinch since the days of DuJuan Fox Harris running loose back in 2006. The Bears were very much a team looking to run the football, with the club averaging 222 yards per game. Now with players like quarterback Izzy Zena and running back Justin Fribbley graduat ing, Warrens job will be and defensive sides of the ball at Central. Warren is no stranger to the area, as he previously was a head coach at Bradenton Southeast in 2014 and balance for Florida prep football should be no science for the newcomer to Hernando County. Who carries the load? Theres no plethora of candidates when it comes to this question on the of the teams leading yard gainers graduated. Zena was one of the teams best runners, rushing for 830 yards to go along with his 1,000-plus passing. Also gone from who totaled just over 600 yards on the ground. One lead candidate will be running back RJ Har rington, who had over 100 yards rushing last season and heads into his senior campaign. He looked impressive in the Bears Blue/Grey scrim mage and could get the bulk of the carries this fall. Another player to watch in Centrals back Isaiah Brown, who will also see time alongside Harrington. Both Har rington and Brown could become one of the coun tys top duos. Spring togetherness The spring can tell you a lot about your team heading into the summer. season under Warren, they can learn a lot about what the Bears could be looking forward to once school starts and practic es rev back up. The Bears showed a lot of grit and promise in 2017, despite losing seven games. A couple contests the Bears can always look back to is a narrow 21-20 loss to Central Spring Football Closeup Central's Isaiah Brown.

The Hernando Lady Leopards softball team won their against NCT and now face Keystone Heights on Friday night at 7:00. SHARKS NCT Jonathan Gates pitches against Taylor during the BELOW: NCT Jonathan base Springstead to begin the season and a mid-season 28-26 decision to Nature Coast, whom eventually Class 5A. Both clubs are set the bar in Hernando County. The Bears are not be able to get them over the proverbial hump. BY ANDY VILLAMARZO HERNANDO SUN WRITER With Hernandos 3-2 loss to Keystone Heights in the Class 5A, Region Hernando County con cludes and caps one of the best seasons the county has seen in quite some time. Hernando was once again a force and was able to notch a district cham pionship and a couple postseason victories in the process. Springstead wasn't too far behind, but nals in Class 6A against district rival Crystal River. Heading back over to Brooksville, Nature Coast continues its strong district rivalry against Hernando and narrowly lost to the Leopards 3-2 in the region and Weeki Wachee made strides this season and should be able to contend in the near future. We go team by team and look back on the 2018 cam paign. Central (5-20): Com peting in a district that features Hernando, Nature Coast and up and coming Wesley Chapel Cypress Creek is never an easy task and thats what the Bears had to battle through during the 2018 season. Central showed signs of competing within the district and outside of it coming close to upending schools like Gulf, Hudson and Lecanto. The Bears do return Kenna McQuown next season, as the junior batted over .400 and notched 27 hits this year. Hernando (25-4): From hitting nearly .400 as a team for the 2018 season to belting 16 home runs to winning the Class 5A, District 7 championship, theres not enough to say about the Leopards strong run this season. Hernando was on the cusp of reach ing states, before being upended by Keystone Heights. Despite the region should be strong again in 2019 as theyll return ace a host of others from this seasons squad. Nature Coast (19-11): The Sharks were undoubt edly the biggest threat to Hernando in Class 5A, District 7 and nearly de feated their district rivals close 3-2 loss to the Leop ards proves the Sharks are not too far away from getting the best of the districts best team. Nature Coast was able to win a in the opening round and Hernando County 2018 prep soball wrap up will no doubt be a contend er once again in 5A-7. Springstead (24-5): In what looked to be a deep Springstead, ended up concluding a bit premature in a 3-2 loss to district rival Crystal River. The Eagles graduate one of their best senior classes in quite some time, but will still return enough talent to be the cream of the crop in Class 6A, District 6. Springstead will have to overcome the graduating losses of Paige Pfent and Kayla Cruz. Weeki Wachee (4-21): The Hornets were a very green group playing out of Class 6A, District 6 and playing against the likes of Crystal River, Dun nellon and Springstead was tough enough. Weeki Wachee, however, has some solid pieces that are up and coming for 2019, including Madison Moran. Moran batted over .300 and collected 23 hits for the Hornets. A win for the Leopards would put them in the Friday against the winner of Marianna and West Nassau. The second team, Springsteads baseball group, won their game against Lake Weir by mercy rule, 12-0. They now face Dunnellon on Tuesday at 7:00, with the winner facing ei And for NCT, they will face the Bishop Moore Hornets, who defeated the Leopards baseball team, on Tuesday at 7:00. The winner of that game will face either Tavares or Santa Fe in the Elite Eight.

by SAVANNAH ALDAY STAFF WRITER Weeki Wachee, FLSpirits were high on Saturday, March 12, as the 27 participants awaited the 2nd annual Mermaid Chase. The event brought Pederson Park. This year, the paddling trail stretched for 3.5 miles. It was a new course and was even longer than the two mile trail from 2017. Because of the new length in miles, whoever placed 1st in the race would set a brand new record. Running the time clock was Erin Daly, from Red Mule Runners and Assistant State Attorney. She was full of energy and buzzing from place to place and person to person. County Clerk and election candidate for Hernando County Circuit Judge, Don Barbee Jr., also gave a helping hand at the time assistance and support whenever needed. Extra kayaks were available, from Turtle Springs, for those who did not bring their own. Most of the participants in the race, this year, were locals. However, Trudy Ensminger, a Hernando County resident, had friends visiting her all the way from Virginia and a small town in Pennsylva nia to participate in the Mermaid Chase. Trudy, along with her husband Bill, and their two friends Pam Shredder and Wendy Bressler Baranak, could not contain their excite ment for this years race. They had participated last year and enjoyed it so much that they wouldnt even consider missing a year. Unfortunately, Trudy Ensminger was unable to kayak with her hus band and friends due to problems with her ankle. She was disappointed but was a true supporter as she cheered on and encour aged her entourage as they paddled the trail. While participants rushed through the course, onlookers and volunteers were able to take pic tures and speak with the resident mermaid, visiting from Weeki Wachee Springs. Sammy, the mer her tail ever since last September and loves every minute of her experienc es with the other Weeki Wachee mermaids. Cheerful, although con of her pink tail, Sammy greeted every visitor that approached her and never declined a photo. ak winner, Larry Cox, won at 42:46. Paddling not too far behind Larry was second place single win ner, Kurt Glacy, at 42:50. Third place winner for the Singles Male Division was Jared Ferreira, clocking in at 44:33. of the Tandem (double) were Corey and Ty Den ninger placing a course record for Tandem at 43:20. Second and third place winners were Jen St. Aubier and Maria Warney (48:37) and Deborah Cha vanne and Debra Hender son (1:06:43). Wynn Hamilton came paddling in at 50:58, Female Single Kayak Division. Following close behind her were second and third place winners, Margaret Hankan (51:44) and Michelle Mataress (53:08). Finally, winning the record, was Bill Daly, sailing in at 1:00:04. Once, the last kayak was pulled out of the wa ter, Brittany Hall-Scharf, our Hernando County Sea Grant Agent from the UF/IFAS Extension, was able to give a few words. Brittany explained how the proceeds from the Mermaid Chase are able to fund future projects geared towards coastal and marine education and restoration. The day ended with an awards ceremony, third winners from each division were announced. They were given stunning shell medals, handcrafted by the talented Terry We glarz, and had their picture taken with Sammy, the Weeki Wachee Mermaid. Thanks and recognition were given to each and every one of the volun teers, including Coastline Realty for providing much needed water bottles and the Hernando County safety issue should arise, as well as everything they do for our county on a daily basis. Each and every one of the participants, whether they placed or not, had a wonderful time and gave reported that racers saw several manatees and dol phins while on the course, making their time out on the water unforgettable. 14 HERNANDO SUN hernandosun.com May 1824, 2018 7031 State Road 52 Bayonet Point, FL 34667 Sunset Realty Serving Hernando & Pinellas Realtor The Visiting Nurse Association of Florida was awarded 4.5 stars out of 5 based on the outcomes of their patients by The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Paddlers at the start of the 3.5 mile race. BY JIM E. DAVIS UF/IFAS EXTENSION HER NANDO COUNTY Looking for a low maintenance beautiful native wildflower to place in your landscape? How about something that attracts butterflies and other pollinators, as well. Do you need a ground cover or climbing vine? If you answered yes, then the elegant passion flower is the plant you may be looking for. Passion flower (Passiflo ra spp.) is a wonderful native wildflower that will thrive in any land scape. Passion flower can grow in full sun and light shade. This is a quick grow ing plant, but is not con sidered invasive. It can be argued that the pas sion flower produces one of the most remarkable flowers of any plant. Flowers are produced in the spring and summer and can reach a size of 5 inches. Flowers range in color from pink to the ever-popular purple. Flowers last about a day, but passion flower does not disappoint. This is a rapid grower and prolific bloomer, so you will have flowers most every day. The one benefit of this plant is its ability to at tract a host of beneficial organisms. The nectar is popular with European honeybees, native bees, parasitoid wasps and other valuable polli nators. Butterflies are examples of pollinators taking nectar from its large flowers. You will find that this plant will attract certain butterflies, specifically the gulf fritillary and zebra long wing. This is because passion vine is a host plant to both species. The zebra longwing is Floridas state butterfly. This is a great plant to attract and keep butter flies in your yard. You can attract both species, but typical ly, one will dominate depending on where passion flower is placed in your landscape. If it is in full sun and in open areas, you will have predominantly gulf fritillaries. If the plant is placed in light shade or on located on the edge of a woodland area or con servation area, then you will have predominantly zebra longwings. One of the most inter esting of passion flowers is the maypop (Passiflora incarnata). Maypops make a nice groundcov er and produce a large fleshy fruit. Maypop can be found in natural areas throughout Hernando. The name maypop orig inated from the sound the fruit makes when stepping on it. The popping sound was a favorite game of kids. For native passion flowers, you may find them available at a local nursery or garden center. Be sure to purchase native passion flower. Non-natives grow well but the caterpillars will most likely thrive better on the native species. Do not be too up set about caterpillars decimating your plants. This is exactly what you want! The caterpil lars will pupate into a chrysalis and then the magic of metamorpho sis will begin and an adult (imago) butterfly will emerge. Enjoy their beauty and watch the butterflies, flurry about in your new backyard habitat. If you would like more help with butterfly gardening, visit our UF/ IFAS Extension Her nando County office at 16110 Aviation Loop to speak to a agent or Mas ter Gardener.

For over a decade I witnessed my dad being whittled down to a twig.

There are times when simple measures can comfort family members who also undergo an amplitude of gloom from this devastating disease. For this reason, Ive paid soul-stirring attention from day one, taking note how this crippling horror destroys not only those enduring these dementia related diseases by robbing them of their golden years, but the lives of their sur rounding loved ones.

New home for Live Oak By SUE QUIGLEY HERNANDO SUN WRITER Ramadan is the most holiest month of the year in Islamic culture. The ninth month in the Islamic calendar, its based on the lunar calendar and the cy cles of the moon. Obser vances begin the morning after the crescent moon has been visibly sighted. This year, 2018, Rama dan will begin at sunset on May 15. In upcoming years, it will begin on May 5, 2019; April 23, 2020; and April 12, 2021. Its a time when all Muslims show their obe dience to the Quran from sunrise to sunset every day, by abstaining from day to day pleasures like eating, drinking, smoking and praying to become closer to God. Ramadan is the month Fasting and feasting; Its Ramadan time when the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed, but he did not decree it a holy month of fast until a long time later. The fast is the fourth of The other pillars include faith in the Islam religion, prayer, helping the needy and, of course, the Hajj. But food also plays an important role in celebrat ing Ramadan. Each day of fasting is followed by an evening meal shared with relatives and friends, ei ther at home or in restau rants where special menus are laid on. Beirut, once known as the Paris of the East, Ramadan and restaurants and cafs would cook the ties. Sweet makers would stay open late to make ex clusive Ramadan sweets; and just before sunrise, drummers called the tebbalin would walk the streets beating their drums to wake people up for a last meal before fasting begins for the next day. Foods eaten during Ra madan vary from one Is lamic country to another, but the ritual is the same. As soon as the sun sets, the fast is broken with some sort of liquid blessed water in Turkey and Iran, harira (a lemony soup with chick peas, pulses and herbs) in Mo rocco, and sharab qamar el din (a sweet drink made by diluting dried apricot paste in water, popular in Lebanon, Syria and Egypt. And with the sweet drinks there will be dates. Dates are a staple in the Middle East and tradition ally known as the food Muhammad ate when breaking his fast. After this small breakfast, everyone would say the maghrib the dusk prayer after which they enjoy an evening meal called iftar. Milk, water, salads and fruits are an essential part of these meals to help make up for the dehydra day. Typical meals begin with a sweet drink, dates and fattoush made with yogurt, spiced shred ded chicken, chickpeas, toasted pine nuts & pita bread followed by soup with rice. The more elaborate specialities include quzi rice, meat and nuts and roasted in the oven), me vegetables cooked on a bed of lamb), kabseh (a layered cake of lamb, veg etables and rice, a Saudi speciality. with mint and garlic and toasted pine nuts). The selection of fruit and sweets is impres sive all year round but it becomes even more so during Ramadan. My par ticular favorite is Halawet el jebn a semolina and cheese pudding with fragrant sugar syrup, but theres also the delicious hadaf (long rectangular baklava with a walnut drink made with milk and powdered dried tubers of orchid. In Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the Gulf, my favorite Ramadan dish was sambosas, some times called samboksas or samosas. Its a fried or baked dish with a savory vegetable, lamb or chick a mint chutney. Tarraweeyah prayers happen each night and some spend much of the night in prayers and Quran recitation. Its a time of contemplation and A close friend who lives in the Gulf says she actually eats less at the evening meal and doesnt socialize much. She says its her personal prefer ence and she reads the Quran as much as possi ble to feel more spiritual. Once the meal is over, people go out to socialize. They visit each other, especially their elders, or go to cafs in the town squares and enjoy the festive lantern lights and decorations. To mark the end of Ramadan, theres a threeday spiritual celebration known as Eid al-Fitr to rejoice in the completion of the fast with family and friends. Eid al-Fitr is also special for children. They are given gifts of money by adults. The little girls notes in. Wherever you are in the world, Happy Ramadan. about a vulnerability and can quickly start to scan the Internet for vulner able machines. Many times within a day or two of a vulnerability being announced you start seeing attempts to exploit it in the logs of your server. This means it is no longer possible to set and forget a device attached to the Internet. You have to constantly monitor if there are security patches avail able and apply the patches. You have to upgrade to the latests supported software and stop using software that is no longer supported. These constant upgrades will cause downtime, but reduce your risk to known and patched exploits. Occasionally a security update will cause issues and a decision will have to be made as to whether the risk is acceptable to run without that security update. Another option is to try to harden the exterior of your network. If no one can get into your network, they cannot exploit your unpatched machines. This is generally not a good idea since exploits can come in the form of shared etc. If you let machines on your network connect to the Internet you need to have all your machines and devices patched. This constant updat ing will mean occasional downtime and lots of prob lem solving. Software will have to be regularly up graded or retired. Business processes will have to be changed to accommodate these software changes. This means there will be even more call for tech nologists that can problem solve and think outside the box.

Cassidy Still, a 7th-grader at Winding Waters K-8, who has been painting since she was ten years old, did a unique take on one of Vincent Van Gogh's most fa mous paintings. She called it 'Starry Night BTS Mash-up.' I used oil pastels and colored pencil and placed the singers from my favorite band, BTS [a seven-member South Korean boy band] in the painting. I'd like to get my artwork known even if it's just online. I have an Instagram account and post some of my artwork there.

Ive never been fond of television or sitting inside with conditioned air and limited views. Id rather be outside in the shade of an old oak tree, especially to get in a little hunting. Which, is something Ive been doing a lot of and one thing Im noticing this year whilst Im out and about in the forests, is a bumper crop of ticks. The infestation isnt local to our county as Ive been all over the state in ing ticks plentiful wherev er I go. After a talk with a dermatologist buddy of formation that rushed me to the computer to further research just as soon as I got home. The number of people getting diseases transmitted by tick bites has more than tripled in the United States in recent years. Since 2004, at least nine such diseases have been discovered or newly introduced here. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website had a lot of good information, but didnt suggest that anybody should drop plans for soft ball games, hog hunts or hammock snoozes. Most sized that its increasingly important for everyone, especially children, be protected from ticks with bug repellent. There are a few products like Permanone, especially marketed for ticks, while any repellent with high concentrations of DEET are strongly recommend ed. New tickborne diseases like Heartland virus are showing up now, while new cases of Lyme dis ease are on the rise. New reports of other tick relat ed illnesses are on the rise all across the country with a new diagnosis being made weekly for anaplas mosis, babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, rabbit fever, Powassan virus and other ills, some of them only recently discovered. My friend, Doctor Rob ert Norman, of Tampa, said warm weather helps ticks breed and transmit disease faster. But after a certain point, the hotter and drier it gets, the more quickly the pests die. So, disease transmission to humans peaks somewhere between mildly warm and hellishly hot weather. He also pointed out that the increase in reports of spreading disease may have resulted partially from more testing. Lyme disease made family doctors begin to suspect tick bites in patients with fevers. Demermatolo gists like himself closer scrutinize rashes at the site of a bite. Laboratories ent pathogens in blood samples, especially in patients who did not have Lyme and that led to the discovery of previously unknown diseases. So, when youre outdoors, whatever your reason, be aware. Check yourself for ticks during and after your outing, use copious amounts of repellent and if you do bite from a tick and note any irritation around the site, dont wait and see what happens, get to your doctor and get checked out. As always, if you have any feedback, suggestions or even just want to share a good hunting story, give me a shout at RebelYell Outdoors@Gmail.com. God bless and good hunting!

OPINION May 1824, 2018 hernandosun.com HERNANDO SUN 19 Creating something valuable takes focus and eort Traditional Realist WILLIAM F. HOLLAND Many Americans have lived an idyllic life. We have had no war reaching our soil, have a solid credit or income to purchase almost any item we want immedi ately. This is truly a materialistic, adults like their children, want whatever they desire. This cre ates a lifestyle that too often plac es them on the edge of insolven cy. These incessant purchasers scramble to maintain their lifestyle left on their own to enter a fantasy world of video games, Harry Pot ter magic, Facebook, and instant These youngsters are not being taught reality, moral values, skills and rules necessary to be successful in the real business world. The parents belief in providing goods is more important than teaching them the skills nec essary to function in the future. Modern children are victims of permissive, materialistic parenting that has been a dismal failure in preparing children for adulthood. Their youngsters are usually to stay above water so as not to drown in debt. These children are normally not aware of the parents es. In the childrens life, money does grow on trees. Their parents use plastic cards and miracu lously everything they want is obtained with the ease of signing their name. In our childrens heads there is no urgent motivation to mature into adulthood as they believe everything will be similar tomor row with their parents there to care for them. These parents do little to enlighten the children that eventually they will not be able to provide for them in the future. Children should learn the skills needed to be independent and self reliant in order to become adults and start the process of advancing in their chosen em ployment path. Without parents preparing their children to be independent they will be dependent on others or the government. Our children are living in a delusional world since they never witnessed their par ents beginning climb up the eco nomic ladder to create an exciting and successful life. They have no idea about what it took nor do the average parents share their initial stories of hardship of starting their Many youngsters never saw their parents actual working place. Some might have visited bring your child to work day. These occasions are more a show and tell experience not a normal workday. These unfortu nate young people have little to aspire to and almost no drive to get there. These youngsters grow into young adults without realizing the tenacity and perseverance that was and still is required to maintain and advance to more demanding and higher paying positions. The lack of real world knowl on these youngster education. They have no academic goals to achieve for there is no reason for them to become independent from their fami ly. Too many are in school only for the reason that their parents insisted on it and too many act out as they see no reason to be there. These students pass the time in school more as a social event rather than a learning experience. They do not feel they have to gain the tools to be an excellent learner. They do not realize that they need knowledge in order to open all possible options for their own future. Most do not realize 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 We are the caretaker of our thoughts I am 3 years 5 months and 10 days older than my wife. Over the years, however, I keep growing older than she. It happens like this: My wife stopped aging at 29 when she turned 30. So when I turned 39 I was a full decade older. She made fun of it, asking me, How does it feel to be married to a much younger chick? I shrugged and said, About the same. She gave me her look, and I amended my answer with whatever I thought she wanted to hear. I dont remember what I said, but it was convoluted and on going complicated, and at one point I thought I might need to start writing the she stopped teasing me, and we went about our married way. (You have to under stand that my wife was a hot babe. When she was twenty-one and I was twenty-four and our two kids were in diapers, we at my colonels house, and while there several of my fellow workers, who had never met her, pointed her out and mentioned that she was a hot babe. When one of them eventually asked me where my wife was, I pointed to her. She was helping serve food at the long table. Well, he was embarrassed and said that hed thought she was the colonels teenage daughter. Nope, thats my wife! As the word spread, everyone was amazed at how young and hot she looked. Yep, thats my wife, the babe! I never told her about that day, so keep it quietoh falderal! Shell read it here.) Fortunately, when she turned 40, she agreed to be 39, so again I was only three years and some beyond her. For ten years I put candles that were in the shapes of 3 and 9 on her cakes (she doesnt like all those little candles) and whenever our kids called and wanted to know how old their mother really wasI suppose, just to see if I knew or hear what I would sayI maintained she was 39. It was familial humor, and it kept my wife happy. I expected her to stay 39 for another decade, so I was astonished when she turned 50 and agreed to be 49. I had already bought a supply of 3-shaped candles for her birthdays. Well, it wasnt too expensive to replace the 3s with 4s, and again I was in her age range. However, I suspect from various hints of looks and other gestures that she will not like being 59 when she turns 60. She gets cranky about the subject. As far as Im concerned, my wife will stay 49 until she turns 70, at which time she may consent to be 59. But I doubt it. Be it known, though, that I refuse to be 20 years older. I will insist on equal aging. If shes still 49 when shes 67, Ill revert to 52 when I turn 70. GOOFY STUFF By VINCENT CARDEGIN I read a book years ago by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale called, The amazing results of positive thinking and I recommend it as an inspiration and encourage ment to your spiritual life. He ex all types of thoughts and per suasions but everyone is held accountable to manage them. We have the ability to resist and that hinder our life and to also embrace the suggestions that are positive and encouraging. I remember after studying about this principle, I had an interest ing dream. I do not always place a lot of credibility in dreams because sometimes I think they are related with late-night pizza binges, but on the other hand, the Bible reveals that some dreams have been used as a legitimate way that God can communicate. Anyway, here was my dream. I found myself on a dusty construction site and as I looked around, I noticed workers with shovels and they were busy digging up small trees and bushes. Some were driving trucks and others were using chainsaws and in the distance, I noticed a bulldozer was push ing over large trees. They were obviously clearing the land but I was not sure for what reason. I approached one of the workers and asked who was in charge but he just kept walking. For some reason, I sensed in the dream that Jesus was over seeing this operation and so I started searching for him. I was expecting any moment to see him in a white tunic, sandals, and hard-hat, but I never did. Finally, I saw a man that was writing on a clipboard and he appeared to be a supervisor. I went over to him and said, excuse me, sir, can you tell me er? As he started walking away he turned his head and calmly said, you are. This is the last thing I remember. There is an old rhyme that says, Your mind is a garden, your thoughts are seeds, you grow weeds. This may sound silly, but in relation to our sub ject, it makes perfect sense to consider that we are the gar dener and caretaker of our own mind. We may not want to admit it, but our spiritual journey was never intended to be a carefree and purpose. Since its been established that what we think is directly associated with how we feel along with what we say and do, we can agree that whatever has taken root and is growing in our mind is having a huge impact on who we are. As the wind and the birds distribute seeds upon the earth, likewise the voices and expe riences of this life are depos ited within our soul. Each of us is vulnerable to this natural process, however, in the light of free-will, we have been given the authority and responsibility to choose what we think about. There is an interesting scripture found in Romans chapter 12 that refers to our mental ac countability, as Paul declares in verse one that we should pres ent our lives as a living and holy to do. Verse 2 continues about how this can be accomplished. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you might prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. The idea here is that we must awaken and realize as Proverbs 23:7 William F. Holland Jr., DD., C.ED.D. is a Christian minister, chaplain, and author.

Their autonomy to make their own decisions, choices and opportunity is limited. Worst of all, most modern young people will have few experiences to learn the elation one feels when accomplishing something meaningful after putting your heart and soul into it. Their school experience, more often than not, was not challenging as the childs self esteem was more important than their hon est mastery of academic skills and relevant knowl mask a poor education but does not do anything to promote a viable and excellent professional candidate for a produc tive and stimulating life. The person is paralyzed in a life of just getting by, never to reach their potential. One of the most important lessons that modern parents and our public school system have not established clearly is that nothing worthwhile in life is done to overcome obstacles. Inner satisfaction comes from concentrated hard work to complete the project and is never as The satisfaction of creat ing something valuable is derived by realizing that I did it. Whatever the end product, the more the ingenuity, perse verance and creativity expended, the more unbelievable and amazed the individual feels that he accomplished what he set out to do. This addictive and leads to other positive deeds and successes. Depending on oth ers: family, friends and especially on free government handouts that promise everything, lead to mediocrity and a self-enslaved soul.

A sampling of the more com mon sentiments expressed on Facebook during Sheri Al Neinhuiss press confer ence in March includes: If this kid did it to get out of school, shell sure be out of school now for a very long time; You play, you pay; Charge her as an adult and to the fullest extent. #Mizel la4Prison. ese are the ragings of an angry mob, not a healthy civic debate. At that same press confer ence, public ocials stated their intent to, in essence, make an example of Miss Robinson a 17-year-old child, it bears repeating. She is to be prosecuted as an adult, and faces a signicant jail sentence that will irre vocably destroy her life. But what does this accomplish? Is the mere hope that it will act as a deterrent really sucient justication for such harsh treatment? No one was physically harmed, nor was physical harm even the intent of her crimes. Incarceration is an expensive undertaking, and will doom this young woman to a life of otherness and struggle. ere is another path. As alumni of Central High School, we call for leniency. e heavy emotions asso ciated with this ordeal have tipped the scales of justice against Miss Robinson. e long-term ruin of this childs life is a grave conse quence. In our estimation, it far exceeds any benet gleaned by a heavy-handed approach to her prosecu tion and sentencing. If it is healing we seek, rather than our own emotional catharsis, we would be better served by addressing the causes of these unfortunate incidents than by throwing the book at the symptoms and hoping it deters future wrongdoers. Respectfully, Floridians for a Democratic Society

better things with his time and to try another business. During this time his parents and siblings had also moved up from South Florida to Spring Hill. His fathers side of the family had always been involved in technology, with several members working at IBM. His mothers side has been in many generations. The family decided to out what they would do going forward. Achilles decided to combine the experience from both sides of the family to sell automobile transmissions on the Internet. This was a bold and new concept at the time, but Achilles was determined to show the world what a website could do. The company was started with very little capital, using his personal credit card with a $5,000 limit. This was a true start-up. They looked around and found a 1,000 square foot just the family was in volved. Uncle Chris drove up from South Florida and donated a trailer full of transmission cores. They worked together at the shop: Achilles, his brother Bobby, parents Curt and Emily, and the support of his grandparents Achilles opened in January 2003. The family hoped and prayed to sell a transmis sion to pay the bills in the up selling eight transmis sions. Business steadily grew and at the end of the year they had sold over 200 transmissions. The company's sales increased three to four fold a year thereafter. To accommodate their growth, they moved the business to a 3,000 square foot building in late 2004. This was a big gamble as they had to continue to grow in order to support the additional overhead. They remained in that lo cation for about six years and the growth continued at an exponential rate. In 2010 Monster was ready to expand yet again, moving to their Brooks ville location which is around 22,000 square feet. During that time frame they began receiving national coverage on mul tiple television shows and magazine publications. With Achilles knack for marketing, he estab lished relationships with producers, TV hosts, and publishers from all over the auto industry. After settling into their facility with roughly a dozen employees, Achil les wanted to celebrate with a grand opening. Initially, it was going to be something small like a ribbon cutting and a car show in the parking lot. However Achilles doesnt like to do anything small, so it turned into a mas sive community event that had to be held at the fairgrounds next door. monster trucks, a huge car, truck and bike show, a circus with elephants, live entertainment and all proceeds donated to charity. At Monster Trans mission they enjoy going all out and giving back to the community. They put the event together in less than three months and had thousands of people in attendance. Their continued growth has lead to international exposure with sales in over 50 countries, includ ing transmissions for the President of Indonesia. Theyve also had famous customer celebrities like Steven Tyler of Aero smith. As well as their fair share of custom projects like building transmis sions for Batmobile replicas, the U.S. Military, and Feature Films! They have appeared on vision shows and their name is now well known throughout the auto industry. Their work is highly trusted and sought after. Recently a cus tomer shipped them his truck from Pennsylvania to have the transmis sion installed. The work could have been done locally, but he believes so strongly in the Monster Transmission brand that he decided to send his truck to Florida for the installation. In addition to Monster Transmission, Achilles entrepreneurial spirit has led to the creation of many other local busi nesses. Thor Converters, which remanufactures torque converters, Burn Rubber Brewing Co., Coast TV which is a full service video production and marketing agency that helps promote local positive news, events, and businesses. Today the story con tinues, the company was listed last year for the 4th time on INC Magazines list of the fastest growing privately held companies in America. Achilles and his team of MonSTARS (what he calls the employ ees) are preparing for yet another move. This time, a property with over 50 acres of land and nearly 100,000 square feet of warehouse space, yes.. its monstrous! The move is scheduled to take place later this year. 20 HERNANDO SUN hernandosun.com May 1824, 2018 BUSINESS & COMMUNITY MONSTER HOLLAND All proceeds will benefit NAMI Hernando and Vincent Academy Adventure Coast.SATURDAY, JUNE 9, 2018COCKTAILS: 5:00 P .M. | DINNER: 6:00 P .M. | SHOWTIME: 7:00 P .M.

When we understand that managing our mind is a crucial priority within our Christian walk, we should be motivated to take more responsibility to develop a stronger mental clarity. But, if we choose to live in a default mode that allows anything to take root in our mind, we are more likely to become overwhelmed with fear, sadness, chaos, and discouragement. Rec ognizing this spiritual reality and becoming determined to pray and work toward our mental transformation, will help us stay sensitive to His still small voice. We will never become what God has called us to be until the desire to change becomes greater than the desire to remain the same.
