MAGLIO STAFF WRITER PHOTOGRAPHY BY ALICE MARY HERDEN Just under 1000 athletes descend ed on Wildlife Lane in Brooksville last weekend to participate in the Mud Endeavor 10 5K race. Runners mostly came from central Florida, but some travelled from as far away as Georgia, to experience the Brooks ville mud run which takes advantage of the areas unique terrain and the propertys access to wateressential for any respectable mud run. This location is where it all started for Randy Yoho, race organizer and business owner. In 2012 Mud En deavor held its first mud run at this location, which was once an old dirt mine. The entire course is visible for spectators to witness all the mud running action. Yoho explained, Every course is different every time. We always add new obstacles and delete others and this particular run, we actually ran backwards from the way we have run it in the past. Obstacles included Runners not afraid to get dirty Warm Potato Salad: Great for Memorial Day In Sports BY ANDY VILLAMARZO HERNANDO SUN WRITER BROOKSVILLE In what was somewhat of a shocker, Bill Vonada has stepped down as Hernandos head football coach early last week and penned a letter of resignation. Below is the letter of resignation obtained by the Hernando Sun from Vonada to the school, as he points out that the ever growing demands of coaching high school football are being met with dwindling resources. "I have recently realized that I am either too old or too young to just play games when it comes to coaching. In other words, high school athletics for me is not just about passing time or doing something for amusement. There are two parts to this thought process: If we are keeping score, we are playing to win. It has to be about some thing more than the score and trophy. Coaching for me has usually included something more: Core values and priorities. I have found that this has made me a better person, as it has caused me to continually examine and improve my own core values and priorities, so that coach and teacher. In the realm of high school foot ball, both the need and the cost of winning has never been higher: 7 Local goverment boards convene to discuss school hardening By LISA MACNEIL STAFF WRITER On Monday, May 21, 2018, the Hernando County School Board met with the Board of County Commis sioners (BOCC) and Hernando County The special Interlocal Governmental Meetings purpose was to bring the two boards together with the primary new school security mandates, which are described in Senate Bill (SB) 7026.

L ast year, we saw 17 named storms and 10 hurricanes, six of which were major, including Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. Harvey, Irma, and Maria impacted the U.S. main land and territories and caused billions of dollars of damage. And forecasters are predicting another active season for 2018. According to a Colorado State University study, its initial prediction for the upcoming season is 14 named storms and seven hurricanes, three of which will be major. Considering the odds and the sheer magnitude and frequency of storms in recent yearsare we ready? Have we in the Tampa Bay area just been lucky or is the Florida Adventure Coast next on the hit list? e Atlantic hurricane season begins in just a few days and runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, with the peak occurring between mid-Au gust and late October. Are you prepared? The storms of 2017 left a path of destruction across Florida.

Thats $150,000 and were working towards resolv ing that. From the latest report it looks like it is improvingof course its not perfect yet. The county received numerous letters object ing to the rate increases and the mandatory area assessment prior to the May 22 meeting. They also heard from a large number of citizens during that meeting. Whether written or com municated in person, there were concerns about the new 96 gallon automated trash bins be ing too large for elderly persons to manage or overkill for the amount of trash they produce. There were questions about what happens if the automated trash carts are damaged or go missing. Chairman Champion asked the Republic rep they will maintain the cans and not charge the citizens. Seth Weightman with Republic stated, In our new contract, every can that we deliver to a paying customer will be maintained by Repub lic for the life of the will become property of the county at the end of the contract. He said that Republic will repair damage to cans as long as it is normal wear and tear. He said that the cans all have a serial number stamped into it and co ordinates on where and when it was placed.

Main Street Earlier today, staff members at Weeki Wachee High School contacted the School Resource Deputy regarding a campus threat. The threat con sisted of an image/text that was being shared via social media. Deputy Nathan Brooks, the School Resource Deputy assigned to Weeki Wachee High School, immediately launched an investigation. Soon after Depu ty Brooks began the investigation, Sgt. Derik Deso and Detective Shawn Galarza arrived on scene to assist. Very quickly, the deputies determined that the person who was claiming to have received the informa tion via social media was the same person who actually created the post, from another social media account that was created for this purpose. Upon questioning, the student admitted to creating the post (which consisted of a threat to the entire campus) and sharing it. The student said she did this to "get out of school." Sheriff Al Nienhuis said, "This is another example of how well the School Resource Deputies work their supervisors and de tectives to get to the bottom of a threat to shoot up the school. I am happy to report that, because of their diligent work, there was little or no disrup tion to normal school activities. Unfortunate ly, this is yet another example of a student committing a very serious crime, simply to avoid school. It is critically important that parents, teachers, and fellow students make this kind of behavior socially unacceptable in our schools. This threat could have few days of school for many hard working students and faculty."

Since tax increases are being considered, ministrator Ron Pianta of Hernando County began the meeting by addressing the population of the county. Showing ic boom and bust that marked the beginning of the 21st century, Pianta reviewed the recession of 2007-2009. Follow the bust, some com munities took longer to recover. Hernando didnt begin to see recovery until 2015. Pianta cautioned that although the county is starting to see a stable and lasting growth trend, it is never known how long it will last. The population of the coun 181,878. Estimating growth by approximately 2% per year, the popula tion is expected to climb to 236,200 by 2040. Recognizing mistakes of the past, Pianta said that the prevention of mak ing those mistakes again would depend on good decision-making going forward. Several new devel opments are planned for the county, namely Spring Center, which will bring 3000 new residences, and Hickory Hill in the SR 50 / I 75 area, which is expected to expand Hernando county by 9000-10,000 new homes. Pianta gave an overview of the lifecycle of a development proj ect to answer questions from the members of the school board. Economic Develop ment Manager Valerie Pianta acquainted the School Board and other attendees with how her department creates opportunities for busi nesses to succeed. She uses about 35 cents of every dollar that they generate in taxes, and a resident uses about $1.30 for every dollar that they generate in taxes. Its important that we balance our tax base, and not balance it completely on our residents. Ms. Pianta went on to report the increases in created jobs and retained jobs in the county in recent years. Quality of life matters is another fo cus of the Department of Economic Development. Such issues as housing of skilled labor, access to roadways and recre ation opportunities are topics often cited when individuals and business es consider moving to Hernando County.

But we have to know whats attractive runs a physical therapy practice, stated that he young physical thera pists because the county doesnt have enough apartments or multi-fam ily residences.

Martin report ed that a new funding mechanism will add $2.7 million to the budget to account for the increase in number of students. Martin also report ed that part of the new mandate for improved mental health services will bring in state funding of $590,000, however there will be restrictions on how that money can be used. If the millage rate is increased for two years, the HCSB can use funds for capital or operating 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. of Finance & Purchasing Joyce McIntyre, extend ing 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 result in $38-million, and 2 mills would yield $76-million. It would be possible to renew a two-year millage rate at the end of the term, to allow for spending on capital ex penses, which would fall under the purview of the school safety initiative.

What a delight for city kids from St. Louis! Like a page out of Laura Ingalls Wilders classic, Little House in the Big Woods (set in Wisconsin), many of the girls experiences mirror the lifestyle and pioneer spirit of the late 1800s. For Georgia, walking on a dead-end road to the rhubarb patch in May to harvest giant leafy stalks and, together with grandmother Nancy, prepare rhubarb sauce to ladle over breakfast pancakes, and bake rhubarb custard pie for evening dessert is a delight. Georgia is the baker and loves to cook, says Nancy, a recently retired school administrator. She washes and dices the stalks, cracks eggs and measures carefully. Its fun! she adds. Cooking together is a way to share a common interest. Like the first robin, the greening grass and the budding trees, add first rhubarb pie to your familys signs of spring list. Whether you harvest rhubarb from your garden, or find stalks in your grocery produce section, give Nancys winning rhubarb custard pie recipe a try with your kids while rhubarb is fresh and in season.FRESH RHUBARB CUSTARD PIE Pastry for 9-inch single-crust pie 1 cups sugar (add more according to taste) 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg Dash of salt 3 eggs 4 cups fresh rhubarb, diced 2 tablespoons firm butter 1.

We take a look at a couple of the matchups, as Weeki Wachee traveled down to Holiday, FL to face traveled to Pasco Coun Hudson. In what could be labeled one of the most exciting spring con tests amongst those that included a Hernando County club, Weeki Wa chee was able to over and comeback to defeat 14 victory last Thursday night. The Hornets were able to get a big night from running back Sebastian Class, who is coming in 2017, with the senior rushing for 178 yards on 27 carries. Class was un der wraps in the opening defense, that held him to around 50 yards. The second half was a and ended up scoring the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter. Wee ki Wachee quarterback Victor Sykora completed 9-of-24 passes for 152 yards in the win for the Hornets. Hornets coach Jacob Gray liked how his team competed and over came adversity late and believes Class is the real deal on the next level. What I know is weve had a lot of (college scouts) come through here and take a look at Sebastian and they look Spring football recaps: Weeki Wachee 18, Anclote 14; Central 12, Hudson 8 Porky on the plate There are few critters that I enjoy hunting more than feral hogs. They are wary, large, destructive, have no bag limits and in most places can be hunted year-round and they are delicious to eat. Living in this county, we are surrounded by great hog hunting and although Ive taken porkers in several Southern states, none provided any better right here at home. My preferred method of hunting is establishing a bait station in an open area near thick cover and feed them up until they begin to visit the site daily. Then, I se lect an ambush location depending upon the direction of the wind (stay downwind as their noses are incredible) and pass a broadhead tipped arrow where it will do its job. Ill pass up the largest, stinking boar in the group to take out eighty to one hundred-pounders for my cooler as they pro vide the best dining. the whole point of prepared wild pork in a variety of ways, in fact just about any way you would prepare commer cially raised and storebought pork. Except, to my taster, wild pork is far better. It possess is far leaner and you have the satisfaction of dining of truly organic protein derived from your own skills. But, wild pork does come with a caution as they can be carrying some undesirable parasites, Swine Brucellosis. Swine brucellosis edibility of the meat, but it should be thor oughly cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees. The prolonged heat will kill any unsavory parasites or potential diseases, whether they exist in your meat or not. The point is, not to take any chances and never serve your wild pork rare. One Thanksgiving I brined an 18-pound bone-in hindquarter for 24 hours then smoked it for 18 hours until it reached an internal temp of 185 degrees. I then pulled the meat served pulled pork BBQ sandwiches right alongside the turkey. we had turkey left overs, but the hog meat had vanished! Im clearly a huge fan of cooking wild hog meat, but I have to stress the importance of taking precautions when butchering and handling the raw meat as well. The bacterium Brucella suis may not only be contracted via ingestion, but humans can contract swine bru or tissue from an infect ed animal contacts with the eyes, nose, mouth few humans die of such an infection, the dis ease can be chronic and debilitating. If an avid hog hunter gets sick remember to inform the doctor of any contact with a wild hog. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recom mends the following dressing feral hogs: Wear eye protection and rubber or latex gloves when handling carcasses. tact of bare skin with animal. meat or other parts of the carcass to your dogs. Wash hands as soon as possible with soap and warm water for twenty seconds or more and dry hands with a clean cloth. Thoroughly cook the meat (internal temp 160 degrees as previ ously mentioned) and be aware that freezing, smoking, drying and pickling do not kill the bacteria that cause brucellosis. With just a bit of awareness and proper caution, there is no rea son not to harvest and partake of that harvest in order to feed your family the best tasting pork you can provide. In fact, here is a great recipe my own family has enjoyed for many years and was featured in my 2014 cookbook, Carnivore Country: cup olive oil 1 onion, chopped green pepper, chopped tsp garlic powder 1 can tomato paste 1 can tomato sauce 2 cans of water tsp black pepper 1 tomato, sliced 3 cups wild hog meat, browned 24 shrimp, peeled and veined In a large cast iron skil let, heat the oil and brown the pepper and onion. mato sauce, tomata paste, pepper, thyme, water and tomato and stir well. Let the mixture simmer for about ten minutes the add in the hog meat and simmer for another ten minutes before adding the shrimp and cook until the shrimp are pink and done. Serves six to eight.

Players, parents, and communities all want a winner, as it is sure to propel them onto bigger and better things. A coach can be a sensation one year, on the hot seat the next, and can be the hottest commodity around after that. Its all part of the deal when you are cashing in the big-time paycheck of coaching (high school coaches who read this are laughing loudly now). COSTThe arms race is not just limited to powerful countries, but has developed its own niche in football. Teams are constantly searching for the new product, scheme, or activity that will put them over the top. More and more resources (time and money) are used to take a program to the next level. Improve ment must be constant; if youre not moving forward, youre falling behind. The increased cost of football means a couple of things: 1. If a team is going to be competitive, they have to be willing to pay the price. If they want to be champions, they have to go above-andbeyond the average. There is no way around thisthe price for victory must paid or it cannot be obtained. 2. If parts of the program are not willing to ante up their share, others must pay more from their resources. The demands of the job are growingnot only in the area of what it takes to win, but also in what is expected of the coach. He is expected to not only win, but also: to get his players to college; solve all problems associated with members of the program (Your star cant remember to bring a pencil to class and drives too fast in the parking lot; what are you going to do about it?); and, to be on call most hours of the day. The hindrances for coaching are growing. Things like increased paper work requirements (current player) combined with lack of access to facilities make the job harder. The demands of the job are growing; the hindrances to the job are growing; the resources are not. resources. My choices then become to change the priorities of the program (character development and winning), change my values and priorities in order to change the leadership of the longer be the type of person I want to be and still run the type of program I want to run in the current environ ment. It is for these reasons that I have decided to tender my resignation as Head Football Coach of Hernan do High School. I have enjoyed the experience of working with some excellent people while here, and thank you for the opportunity to do so. I wish you continued good fortune with both the success of your program and in the de velopment of the young men of character that our world so desperately needs.

Pat Shopmeyer Gagliano started the Reading Buddies go to Spring Hill Elementary School one day a week to read one-on-one with the children there. The most satisfying thing [about reading with the chil dren] is to see the kids get up to grade level and above. I don't know who enjoys it more in the long run the kids or the bud dies, Karen Shaskan states. Mrs. Shaskan is also a mem ber of the Glen Lakes Book Club which meets monthly to discuss a book they have read. In addition, the club raises about $900 a year to purchase books for Spring Hill Elementary and Winding Waters K-8 second donate books for each child. Our active membership is about sixty. We go through a four month nomination process [to decide what books to read]. In September, members nom inate up to two books, stating the title, author, brief summary and an evaluation of the book. I compile the list and give one meeting, the person who nomi nated the book tells us why we should pick their book and then we vote, states Lois Oberland er, the club's founder. Stephen explains how he comes up with ideas for his books. Many of my ideas come directly from the children Ive worked with. Max Speed is a story about a child with a big imagination who engages in adventurous pretend play; The based on three students who were pretending to play the Bil Choo was from working with a child with autism and Downs Syndrome who loved Thomas trains.

But with new opportunities ahead, youll soon be too busy to feel even a wee bit sorry for yourself.

BY DR. KATHLEEN SHIELDS UF/IFAS EXTENSION HERNANDO COUNTY MASTER GARDENER Did you know? Spanish moss is neither Spanish nor a moss. Spanish moss is not a parasite; it gets all its nutrients from the air and rainwater. Spanish moss has a key role in Floridas ecology. Spanish moss is common in our area, and people often wonder if it harms our trees. Contrary to widely held belief, Spanish moss is not a parasite. It is an epiphyt ic plant that grows on another plant but does not utilize the host plant for nutrients. Epiphytes, sometimes known as air plants, get all their nutrients from the air and rainwater, and they make their own food. Spanish moss does not have any roots. It uses its long, scaly stems to wrap around the host tree and hang down from the branches. The stems are covered with cup-like, permeable scales that re trieve moisture and nutri ents from the air and from pockets on the surface of trees. The plants tissues can hold more water than it needs, so it can with stand long dry periods, and in extreme droughts, it becomes dormant until moisture returns. When the tissues plump up after a rain, Spanish moss ap pears greenish, and as the water is used, it returns to a gray hue. Spanish moss is not a type of moss; it is a bromeliad, related to pineapples and many popular houseplants. It does not exist in Spain but is native to Central the southeastern US. it Itla-okla, which meant tree hair, but early French explorers thought it looked like the Span ish conquistadors long beards, so they called it Spanish Beard. One story is told of a Spaniard named Gorez Goz who can maiden for a yard of braid and a bar of soap. She ran away from him and he chased her to the top of a tree. The maiden dove into the water and escaped, but Gozs long beard got tangled in the tree, and there he died, re sulting in the greybeard that we see in trees today. Over time, Spanish beard became Spanish moss. Spanish moss produces tiny seeds with feathery appendages that allow air, but it is more likely to propagate from frag mented pieces carried by birds or the wind. Many animals use Spanish moss for protection, taking cover in the thick mass es. Several species of songbirds use the plant material for nest building or weave their nests in clumps of moss. Warblers are especially fond of these sites, as are bats. Many reptiles, amphib ians, insects and mites (especially chiggers) are common residents in Spanish moss, espe cially on the ground, so be careful if you handle it. While the plant is not parasitic, heavy accumu lations can weigh down branches and over-shade existing foliage. Dead and declining trees general ly have numerous bare branches that easily catch wind-blown moss, while healthy trees generally outgrow any moss that lands on them.

Save Time With VA Health-Care AppsAll you need to connect to health care at the Department of Veterans Affairs is a computer, tablet or smartphone. In August, officials unveiled a special app (The VA Video Connect), and so far 20,000 veterans have used it to increase their access to 4,000 VA providers and cut down on travel time. This is huge. With the app, you can connect to a virtual medical room, just like you were meeting in person. You can have an appointment without ever having to leave home. Go online to mobile.va.gov/appstore and read the FAQ. Unlike some of the VA pages, this one is well-done. Note the link to the test site to ensure that your device is compatible. If you have an iPhone, youll end up at the Apple app store for your free download. For an Android, youll find instructions linked from the page. One hint: If you signed up back in August on an iPhone and now your app doesnt seem to work, theres a good chance you got the older version and need to get the new app. Computers, tablet and Android phone apps still should work correctly. On the same page are other available VA apps. Theres a scheduling app so you can make appointments for primary care. (Theres also a user manual.) See the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) app for help with managing daily struggles due to PTSD. It was developed by VAs National Center for PTSD with input from veterans and service members who are in ACT consultation. Two apps contain the air borne hazards and open burn pit registry, and the clinical portal for those.

Men may be considered to be toxic to radical feminists but they are necessary to have a viable, diverse and healthy society. Without men our nation could not survive. American men have been the main warriors to pre serve democratic governments throughout WWI, WWII, The Korean War, the Cold War, and turmoil with the Islamic terrorists that continue today.

They do this by creating a biased anti-male narrative while ignoring the impact women had on these events.

When boys react against be environment, predominately taught by females, they are often reprimanded by the teacher. Rather than altering the educa tional environment the boys are labeled. Schools have become so unfavorable to males that they currently comprise only 40% of the graduates from college. Boys need to be and should be boys, as our society needs tough men to remain viable and strong. Men are not only essential for procreation, protection, provid ing, being warriors and most importantly for raising healthy children especially the males. sense-obedience trainers, who rameters needed to remain away from anti social behavior. Male role modeling and the direct teaching of their children to deal with the harsh realities of life are imperative for the success of children. The father sees the world from understand the advantages of being risk takers with a strong dose of courage to gain advan tage over other people compet ing for the same prize. Fathers understand the male subculture and that perseverance, mental toughness, and ability to handle adversity is the path to suc cess. Compassion, tolerance, politeness, consensus making, manners, proper appearance, and compromise are values, attitudes and behaviors that are highly touted by the female.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Memorial Day is more than a holiday er, called the other day, and for once we didnt talk about Exwork. Instead we cussing our watching habits of television and movies. Turns out were quite alike. We both speed watchnot to be confused with speed reading, which was a huge commercial scam in the eighties, and for a shorter time in the aughts. (But it wasnt like Pet Rocks, exactly. Those were knick knacks, and I think there should have been cages for zoo rocks, and little houses for domesticated rocks with rock families. They could have made even more mon ey with such things during that insanity.) Speed watching is fast-forwarding. The older we get the less patience we have for delays, and thats especially true for docu mentaries and documenta ry-like shows. What on Earth is the worst. I record everything so I dont have to watch commercials, but that show wastes so much time with aliens and gov ernment conspiracies that Ive learned to handle the remote like my grandkids work their game controllers. I want to know what it real ly is, and so I fast-forward until I see someone walking across the ground at the site of the satellite picture. Channel, putting two or three old episodes together does not make it new!) My brother and I look forward to future conversa tions that will include such critical banter as: out on DVD and Stream ing. Yeah, I just fast-forward ed through it the other day. How was the ending? ably fast-forward through it again. (Thats high praise.) How many arrows? I give it a 3.5. I for half, and four for the rest. movies, now. We dont use stars or thumbs up. We use arrows, and the higher the number the worse the mov you see on screen when you fast-forward (right arrows) and rewind (left arrows). I seldom use left arrows. My On Demand only have four, to watch it again, and Im pissed I rented it. In Space remake. I consider it a nine-hour movie, and I give it a 3 arrow rating. I can accept the robot being alien, and Dr. Smith being a woman whose name isnt really Smith, but please make some 3D-Printer guns, you morons! Makeshift spears wont work! Even LISOS had laser weapons! be PC about it, make guns that only stun, and zap the creatures so theyll go away and maybe not come back. gence in those alien skulls, perhaps theyll tell the other monsters about it, and theyll all stay away! Theres only one movie Ive seen recently that I re ally like, and I went out and bought the DVD after rent ing it On Demand. Im not sure why I like it, except its kind of like James Bond, and a Jane Bond, in space: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. I did not fast-forward, and probably wont start forwarding to get to my favorite parts until Ive seen it ten times. I give it zero arrows. GOOFY STUFF By VINCENT CARDEGIN Like so many holiday week ends, this is one of those times when folks are happy for a chance for some fun at the beach, on the water, in the mountains or just any place to get away from it all and rest. But few have any idea why they place. Even if you know this is Memorial Day weekend, you may be wondering: what are we memorializing in this observance that began 150 years ago? (Which most of us probably didnt know either.) Controversial as it may seem to some, it is a day to memorial ize those who died in wars rath er than to celebrate the victors. No matter how you feel about war in general or any particular war, most Americans feel obli gated to somehow honor those men and women who gave their lives to protect and uphold their country. Consequently, the Tomb of the Unknowns, The Vietnam Wall and similar memorials. And thats what this weekend is all about. The observance started back in 1868 when some veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic would be in bloom) as a time to decorate with bouquets the graves of the dead from the Civil War, now estimated to be 750,000 Union and Confederate soldiers Following the requisite children from the Soldiers and Sailors Orphan Home and members of the GAR, singing hymns and reciting prayers as they went, made their way through the Arlington National both Union and Confederate graves there. Decoration Day (because of the was preceded by a handful of similar events, some called Me morial Day, scattered through out the North and South where As civic ceremonies marking the day have pretty much faded from the picture the appear ance of the poppy after World War I has grown to symbolize the meaning of the observance which Congress made a national holiday in 1971. Meanwhile at least 642,000 additional mem bers of the armed forces are in since the Civll War, nearly 7,000 of them in 5 major engagements since 9-11. Over the weekend, you might see an older man or woman in the uniform of some veter ans organization maybe the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion or Disabled American Veterans or their auxiliaries handing out silk or plastic paper poppies in shop sections in hopes of a donation. Inspiration for making the poppy a symbol for the occasion came from a popular poem, In Flanders Field, written by a Canadian doctor, John McCrae, as a tribute to the soldiers who had died and were buried in a end all wars in which he had served. The poem prompted Moina Michael, a professor at the Uni versity of Georgia, to make silk disabled veterans in her classes and their families. Utilized by the VFW since 1922, at least 10s of millions of those poppies (whose red color represents the blood shed in war) will be distributed this year to raise several hundred millions Speed Watching Domenick Maglio, PhD. is a columnist carried by various newspapers, an author of several books and owner/ director of Wider Horizons School, a college prep program. Dr. Maglio has a new book, available on Amazon and other sites, entitled, IN CHARGE PARENTING. You can visit Dr. Maglio at www.drmaglio.blogspot.com. female perception is the reason why a two parent: father and mother family, gives the children of both tion for functioning in a world made of both male and female perspectives. ence in their approach, ideals, mannerisms and means of reaching their objectives creates inter dependency between the sexes. This balance creates harmony needed in high functioning and united civilized society. When one gender or the other totally dominates the culture, eventually the nation is weakened. When women are disrespected for all they do, the family and same happens for the males when they are not appreciated for all they do. Disunity destroys the cohesiveness that binds the male and female to gether making the entire The Boy Scouts accepting girls in their program does not between the genders. It does eliminate import ant experiences where boys can be boys that give radical feminists a victory of disbanding another sanctuary for them. Yet the biological es between the sexes attract and bond them together. Boys and girls are hardwired and physiolog tions in life to perform. Gods grand design cannot be socially engi neered out of existence without causing great harm to the individuals and the very survival of the species. Boys and girls should ences, not be ashamed of them. A radical, small interest group has no right to trample on young boys nature to satisfy interest to punish half of our population. ADON TAFT See TAFT, Page 20 Dear Editor: As a taxpayer and a citizen I was upset about having trac rerouted, with trac jams, and the expense to have Central High School searched and the waste of time that was spent because of one stu dent. If I were in charge I would let all students know that they have to be in school for the required period of time or the district will lose funding and the students will not have the opportunity to learn their subjects, and that the school year is set up to accomplish that goal with some extra days to account for emergen cies, such as hurricanes, res, sickness, etc. us, I would announce at the beginning of each year that if any precious learning time is stolen for unlawful activities, such as bomb threats, that the time will be made up at the end of the school cal endar, and thus, gradua tions would be postponed and students could not move to the next grade level. is would be a deterrent. We would then teach the students by expectations and not necessarily punishment. Also, I would propose a statute whereby the parents are jointly and severally liable for dam ages, and expenses caused by their childrens actions. Cordially, Caroline Zoes Brooksville
