Thats when the need to shunt water to reclamation areas arises. There is currently a reclaimed water line that runs the length of US Highway 19 from Glen Lakes to Timber Pines. A $13-million dollar exten sion would run the length of County Line Road, then northward to the Brooks ville Tampa-Bay Regional Airport (BKV). Other proposed piplines are: a connection from the US 19 pipeline to the planned Spring Center development, at a cost of $25-million, (due to the large number of clients it would serve), a route in Ridge Manor to serve the planned Sunrise develop ment at $1.2-million, and a short route from BKV to Anderson Snow Park $350,000. Another scenario involves linking all three major areas (Glen Lakes, Timber Pines, BKV) for $36-million. Commissioner Wayne Dukes asked if a better short term goal would be to prioritize golf courses to receive reclaimed water before developments and communities that havent been built yet. Several alternatives are being con sidered, including recharg ing the aquifer, residential irrigation and agricultural reuse. While costs were the most-discussed values, the reclaimed water routes will generate revenue. At present, the Timber Pines operation generates roughly $17,000 per month for 1.7-million gallons of reclaimed water. Currently in place is a county ordinance that limits the amount of water that can be reclaimed. This ordinance will need to be reviewed, along with planned routes in a regular meeting to be scheduled in August. S2S Project In 2016, the Florida Legislature passed the Florida Springs Protec tion Act. The act called for the creation of Basin Management Action Plans (BMAP) for major spring shed systems in the state. Each BMAP is created by the Florida Department of Environmental Protec tion with input from local governments. The purpose of the BMAP is to cre ate a roadmap for Total Maximum Daily Load or TMDL pollutant reduction. The main pollutant of con cern for the Weeki Wachee Springshed is nitrates and one of the major sources they found to contribute to groundwater nitrates is septic systems. The BMAP requires re ductions of nitrogen depos its into ground water in the Weeki Wachee springshed in designated areas. One of the projects listed on the BMAP for the Weeki Wachee Springshed is the $240,000 Septic to Sewer conversion studywhich has been completed. The study by Coastal Engineer ing, looks at the feasibility of converting 32,000 prop erties in the Weeki Wachee Springshed from septic to sewer in 19 districts (A-S). The total price of doing so, is estimated around $700 million. District A and B septic to sewer conversions from the conversion study have BMAP. Districts A and B are located just north of Weeki Wachee Springs. The price for complet ing both conversions is roughly $50 million. There are 900 septic systems to convert in District A and 1,310 septic systems to convert in District B. According to Onder donk, the Weeki Wachee [river] is impaired. The condition, known since 2016, sparked the BMAP in order to repair the springs feeding the river to restore the nitrate levels to acceptable levels within twenty years. Onderdonk remarked that 30% of the nitrogen levels are being contributed by septic sys tems. Another contributing contributing over 40%. The proposal is for all properties within the BMAP area (Districts A and B) of one acre or less convert to county sewer service. The area is shown as an irregular mapping, with a northernmost border at Centralia Ave, points west of US Highway 19, and eastward to US High way 41. It extends south to County Line road, into Pasco county. The next question is money. While turning existing septic customers over to sewer, the county does gain paying custom of the project. The chart shown de picted credits, rather than actual dollar amounts for several projects that could reduce the nitrate count of the Weeki Wachee. By im plementing a certain proj ect, the county is awarded a number of credits by FDEP. Commissioner John Allocco asked Onderdonk, Is someone actually measuring that it does what it says, or is it playing a government game to see who gets the most points? Onderdonk responded that the resulting metrics are highly theoretical. The actual cost of the conversion project (for distircts A and B) would be $50-million, estimated to cost $22,000 per home. The state of Florida would pay 50%, with Southwest Florida Water Manage ment District (SWFWMD) paying 25% of the balance. Hernando County would pay the remaining 25%. What happens if we dont do this at all? BOCC Chairman Steve Champion asked. Champi on, seeing the project as an expansion of government, reiterated all the positive points cited earlier about Hernando Countys soil, tion. He went on to say, This is not a health con cern. There is just some green in the spring. State Representative Blaise Ingoglia was at the meeting, and spoke about the legislation at the root of the discussion. Accord ing to Ingoglia, the 75% funding available currently may decrease in the future, leaving some taxpayers with a higher assessment than others. Statewide, the conversions are expected to cost up to $1-billion. We have to solve this problem. The challenge is that we have a piece of legis lation that was writ ten in 2016, with an implementation date of 24 months its causing havoc in the marketplace. It will be a huge, massive tax in crease on homeowners throughout the state, Ingoglia remarked. Commissioner John Allocco concurred, stating We need a constitutional amendment against unfund ed mandates. Alloco also are wasted in situations where we dont know what the end-game is. Since the meeting was a workshop, and not a regular meeting, no vote was held, but the consensus among the commissioners was to not support the proj ect at this time. Onderdonk work with the Department of Environmental Protec tion and other agencies to come to a resolution. S2S Florida judge lis stay on smokable medical marijuana By JOE REEDY,Associated Press TALLAHASSEE, Fla.

I didnt want them to nal issues. It was my own coping mechanism. I had leave my house very much. I was never physically violent, but I was quick to yell. My wife was the one who recognized it. The VA [Veterans Administration] put me on medication. Although medication is one method of treating PTSD, it is not the only method. Common treatments include Cognitive Thera py, Exposure Therapy and group therapy. People react ments depending on a wide range of factors and what person, others might not have that same experience. We have seen encouraging results from the research that has been conducted at St. Leo University regard veteran having a service dog, Brown comments. For Ron Flaville, K9 Partners for Patriots has been a lifeline. He already had a female German Shepherd (Sophia) and Rons wife noticed that when he was having mo ments of anxiety or anger, Sophia would come over to him and start pawing at him and getting his focus onto her. My wife had seen a vet eran with a service dog and started doing research on getting our dog trained as a service dog. She contacted Mary Peter at Stillwater Dog Training and arranged a time for the two of us and Sophia to meet with Ms. Peter. And the rest is history. Since that time, Mary Peter founded K9 Partners for Patriots, an organiza tion that matches dogs to veterans and trains both for this specialized task. Rons dog was a good candi date for the program and Flaville has become Chief Partners for Patriots. I have seen many pos itive changes in so many of our veterans who go through the nineteen-week training course. Some of the possible reasons for the positive changes the dog gives unconditional love can help wake up veterans get the veteran out of the house because the veteran has to walk the dog so they are getting more physical the veteran refocus their attention on something positive, all of which can help reduce their overall anxiety and depression, states Brown. In the light of so many tragedies that have hap pened in the past few years from mass shootings to natural disasters and be cause of the pervasiveness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Congress has declared June to be PTSD Awareness Month. Its an invisible illness, Flaville states. In addition to raising basic awareness about treatments available, I PTSD would say that acceptance is also a big part of it as well. There is often such a stigma associated with PTSD or any other mental illness. Having PTSD does not make you weakin fact quite the opposite in my opinion. Some of the strongest and most resilient people I have met have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is just something that can develop when someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. We wouldnt say someone is weak if they came back from war with a physical injury, Brown concludes. Post Traumatic Stress Dis order Awareness Month is dedicated to raising aware ness about this life-long struggle and the people it can help make their lives just a little easier. If you or someone you know is struggling with PTSD, reach out. There are many resourc es. Mental health centers and The Veterans Crisis Hotline (1-800-273-8255) are just two. Partners for Patriots call Cynthia and her service dog Cody in training at K9 Part ners for Patriots by Gov. Rick Scott last June, state that patients can use cannabis through vaping and in food, oils, sprays and tinctures. Morgan, who led the push for the constitutional amendment, led a lawsuit challenging the ban two weeks aer Scott signed the bill. He was joined in the suit by Cathy Jordan and Diana Dodson, who say that smoking medical marijuana has prolonged their lives. In her four-page ruling, Gievers cited the harm that could be caused to Jordan, who has had ALS since 1986, and Dodson, who has had HIV since 1991, if the stay was extended. "First, they cannot legally access the treatment recom mended for them. Second, they face potential criminal prosecution for possession and use of the medicinal substance," she wrote. Morgan asked Gov. Scott on Tuesday via social media to drop his appeals. "Every day you waste taxpayers' money with this frivolous appeal sick people, veterans, cops, reghters and cancer patients suer!" Morgan wrote on Twitter. "Where is your compassion man?" Even with the stay being lied, smokable medical marijuana will not imme diately be available for sale at treatment centers. at's because the Department of Health must come up with rules to cultivate, distribute and sell, which could take several months. As of last Friday there were 117,522 patients and 2,644 doctors in the state's medical marijuana registry. e Department of Health also says that 94,023 patients have received their ID cards, which allow them to receive cannabis at state-approved treatment centers. Florida Department of Health spokesman Devin Galetta said in a statement that department ocials are reviewing the ruling. Any further appeal would be heard in the state's 1st District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee. e health department is involved in six other cases dealing with medical mari juana, ranging from the pro cess of awarding treatment center licenses to allowing a Tampa man to grow it at home for juicing.

BY HANNA FOX SPECIAL TO HERNANDO SUN As a Christian Camp, Lakewood Retreats statement of purpose is Sharing Gods love through service by pro viding a setting in which to experience Jesus Christ. Their service they ex plain is in response to Jesus command to His Come with me by your selves to a quiet place and get some rest. Rest and spiritual camaraderie is what you Retreat, owned by the Southern Mennonite Camp Association, situ ated in a peaceful, rural Spring Lake Highway in Brooksville. The nature abounds, whether it is on the lake or along a beautiful hiking trail in the woods. After you do get some rest, there is a large variety of activities to enjoy like a petting zoo, canoeing, swim ming, volleyball, gaga ball, tennis, basketball, archery, team building, soccer, football, a game room, a playground, zip lining, and much more. Some folks might not know exactly what gaga ball is. I didnt know about it until I went to Lakewood Retreat last year. Gaga ball, which originated in Israel, is sort of like dodgeball. Its played in a ring by a group of individual players, two teams or just two people. If you get hit on or below the knees with the ball youre out. Our school group had so much fun playing gaga ball, now we have our very own gaga ball pit on our school campus. Lakewood Retreat was founded as a Mennonite camp in 1966. At that time, racial tensions were problematic for the integrated Mennonites and many Christian camps were not willing to host the Mennonite programs. The found ers purchased 83 acres at Lakewoods current location and much work was needed to turn the property into a suitable summer camp. In 1969, the inaugural summer camp program took place with two cabins and 25 campers per camp. Today Lakewood Retreat is 135 acres and provides an outreach for all Christian de nominations. It is open year round for school groups, family reunions, bereavement groups as well as youth camps. There are over 220 beds, 55 campsites, a dining hall that seats up to 200, seven meeting rooms and an activity center.

Make your gift-giving special with two of my favorite and easy DIY ideas that you and your kids can do together for gift wrap that show your special touch, creativity and pizzazz.USE FABRIC GIFTS AS THE WRAP Like a beach towel! If there is a birthday in the house, or if your child is going off to summer camp, a colorful beach towel and items for summer fun are an ideal present. Instead of purchasing a gift bag, use the bright towel to wrap it all up. Fold the towel in half lengthwise. Make a triangular fold at the bottom and continue to make triangular folds until you reach the top like folding a flag. If there is extra toweling at the top, fold it under. Pinch the two side end points and cinch them with ribbon or twine. Open the middle space to create a triangular pocket for tucking additional small gifts, such as flip flops, sunglasses, sunscreen and healthy snack bars. If there is space, roll up a fun magazine or comic book and a little bouquet of flowers for that pizzazz factor. Or, are you giving ... A cookbook? Tie a colorful dishtowel folded in half crosswise around it, and tie in a knot with a set of measur ing spoons. A baby gift? Roll it up in a light summer baby blanket with ribbons cinching the ends. Tie in a cute rattle. A picnic basket? Pick up a vintage 1950s tablecloth to wrap around the basket for an eye-catching retro look. A jewelry box? Wrap it in a fashion scarf twisted around and around and tie in a bow or loosely knot it and tuck inside the twists. LET NATURE WRAP IT UPGiving a bouquet of flowers? Instead of presenting the blooms in ho-hum tissue paper, newspaper or plastic from the florist or market, trim the stems and arrange in a canning jar or large recycled, clean glass jar. Wrap a woodsy looking piece of birch bark (from fallen branches or your wood pile) around the container, and tie together tightly with twine to hold in place. Or wrap with fresh large leaves, such as garden hosta. They are striking wrapped around a container, too. *** Donna Ericksons award-winning series Donnas Day is airing on public television nationwide.

Toby is a renowned archer and turkey hunting expert who manufac tures custom game calls and is a regular judge at NWTF sanctioned turkey calling events across the Southeast. The only advantage the camera has been for me, has been to provide pho tographic evidence of the deer Im planning to hunt. Now, a proper trail-cam era setup is a very im portant part of their use and oftentimes the most overlooked. Too many of us expect to throw a cam era on a tree and have deer walk past. Though its not quite that simple, by taking your time and following these steps, you will gener ate better photos which will give you a better idea of the bucks on your property and locations to hunt them. Location Lets face it, you will not get pictures of deer if there arent any deer around. Just like hunting, you want to pick a location that deer are frequenting at that given time of the year. This could include a water hole now in the heat of the side of a timbered ridge where deer will bed down to take advantage of the breeze. The more evidence of deer in the area, the your SD card Direction What goes up must come down. Im talking about the sun. Make sure your cam era is not facing directly into the sunrise or sunset. Many times we forget this simple step and get blurred or whited-out photos from the suns glare. Its best to face trail-cameras north or south, but at least try to avoid facing the shutter due east or west. Also, if placing a camera on a trail, orient it at a 45-degree angle to the trail instead of head on. This will not only give your trail-camera wider viewing and more potential to trigger and catch a deer in the frame as it moves along, but it also keeps the camera out of the deers face for less chances to spook it. Height Get those cameras up! When setting up a trail-camera, I believe you should always make sure the camera is at least as high as your head. I think deer are much less likely to notice cameras placed six Trail-cameras placed lower can be right in a deers face, making it more likely they will notice the camera. Might be just a little picky, but by simply moving your camera up the tree and angling it down, youll improve your odds. Now, some believe it estimate the age of bucks in photos taken from a high angle because features like belly and neck lines are less visible. When age is important, like with a trail-camera survey this time of the year, keep cam eras lower but make some a proper set up for your trail-camera, the proof will be in the photos! So, keep these simple steps in mind and see what you get, then adjust your setup as you go to continue improving your success. Good luck! And as always, if you have any feedback, sugges tions or even just want to share a good hunting story, give me a shout at Toby@ HernndoSun.com. God bless and good hunting! Get Em To Say Cheese! After a dozen or so con versations during the last week seeking information on trail-cameras, I thought Id share a few things Ive learned about their usage over the last few years. But, before I do, I want to just suggest that a good trail-camera is no replace ment for basic woodsman ship. Learning to read sign properly can give you the same information as the camera.

Both teams had their ace pitch the entirety of the game. Sharks ace J.P. Gates threw 85 pitches four strikeouts and six walks, and Bolles junior Hunter Barco threw 99, outs and two walks. Gates mentioned how good their lineup was, saying They (Bolles) were good from one to nine. There wasnt anybody in the lineup I felt I could just blow it by them. Bolles head coach Mike Boswell, in his third straight Final Four appear ance, wasnt counting out NCT at all. Theyre an up-and-coming school, had a great year. They didnt seem intimidated at all about the big stage. They came out ready to Their pitcher is really good, and it was fortunate to get him early and leave it up to our big guy and his arm. The Sharks collected Zach Funkhouser lacing However, the next batter grounded into a double play, and the threat was ended. From there, Bolles started to show why they were the defending state champions. Senior shortstop Max Robinson sent a Gates pitch to right, and the throw in was slow enough to where he could lace out a double. From there, Gates struck out the next batter, but couldnt get past Barco, who took a pitch to deep left-center for a RBI triple. A sacri score Barco, who narrow ly beat the laser throw from Funkhouser. Another run in the second would make the score 3-0 before the Sharks struck.

After the game, Sharks head coach Frank Vitale summed up the teams bats going cold: We had solid contact all game, but almost all of ours went right at the defenders, while theirs found the gaps. But thats baseball. We played well, they played a little better. With the loss, the Sharks close one of the best high school prepa ratory careers in history, as Gates currently has two options coming up: he will either go pitch at the University of Miami, where he committed as a sophomore, or he could be selected in the upcoming 2018 MLB Entry Draft. Regardless of which path he takes, Gates is certain opposing hitters with his craft. That said, the Sharks have no reason to hang their heads, as the made history for the school this year. According to Gates, Were not a baseball school. We put baseball on the map these last few years, winning three straight district cham pionships, and now this (Final Four appearance). The school even televised it for our students who couldnt make it here, but the amount of people who And now were going to get a banner put up in our school, which has never been done before.

OPINION June 814, 2018 hernandosun.com HERNANDO SUN 19 Progressive playbook is Maa-style racketeering The First Amendment to our Constitution protects our right to freedom of speech. This has been a hallmark of the USA since its inception. The progressive move ment is insidiously attacking it. Unlike the traditional liberals who believed in debating ideas to reach logical and rational decisions, the progressives rely on the ends and eliminate the other side any way necessary. The goal is for their elite cohorts to gain total control of virtually everything. Accomplishing that free speech has to be replaced by politically correct, group think. We have clearly seen this process on college campuses. Any student or speaker who has non-progressive views is shouted down, humiliated or physically attacked. Professors holding traditional viewpoints in universities on average are less than 10% of all professors. These few tradition alists understand the precarious position and self-censoring needed to keep their positions. Our politically correct media are progressive advocates who create false narratives to push their elite agenda. The selection and perspective taken are always highlighted to demonstrate the positives of the progressive propo nents and negatives of everyone else. The traditional side is labeled as racist, intolerant, mean spirited, statements to destroy their credi bility and personal character. Their personal life is investigated and exposed to eliminate them from the stage. Media bias is part of the pro gressive strategy. Publix, a large supermarket corporation, had the audacity to give money to Adam Putnam, a candidate for governor who supports the NRA. Even though Publix announced it would suspend political contri butions the media still featured a Die-In protest in Publix. This was produced and directed by the progressive darling, David Hogg, and supporters of Parkland school shooting fame. The inclusion of this Die in after Publixs capitulation was to solidify Hoggs credentials, additionally it was a statement or warning to other corporations to follow the group-think script or else. Rosanne Barr, a top money making television sitcom actress, was cancelled like lightning after her stupid Tweet about an Obama administration advisor. This incident clearly demonstrated the medias double standard. When many others: Joy Behar of The View said Christianity is like a a severed head of Trump, Ma donna spoke of wanting to blow up the Whitehouse, and many others made slanderous statements about repercussions. The hit men to keep everyone in line are political media dons. Reverend Jesse Jackson shook down corporations to donate to the Rainbow Coalition or they would be attacked as racist. Lois Lerner, Internal Revenue Service, refused Tea Party organization eliminating groups countering Obama and investigated donors who supported tice department, pursued corpora tions with the full force of the law. The business would be found guilty of an obscure ruling and would be to promote a progressive cause. Now the corporations, like the Wisdom, knowledge two dierent things A year ago my grandson, Maestro, graduated from High School. It took two hours and thirteen min utes for the ritual. Most of that were people on stage talking to the students. One girl, the Valedictorian I think, talked for so long and in such a way that we the audience kept thinking she was done. Like everyone conclusions in her speech, and so we applauded over and over, with gradually less intensity of course. And thats why when she while before anyone started clapping. We didnt know. I am not a fan of ritual, and so the whole thing was torture to me. When we myself with the knowledge that it would be a whole year before I had to do this again. I dont know where the year went, but a couple of weeks ago my granddaugh ter, Sneaks, graduated from High School. It, too, was full of speeches, and Im reminded of a book I read about the 1860s when poli four or more hours. People could tolerate it then because they didnt have TV or cell phones. Such oratory bloat was their entertainment. It took us another thirty minutes to get out of the quagmire of six-twenty and got home at But it wasnt over. The next night was her gradua food, all home cooked, and a lot of people. But I am also not a party guy: I have about ten minutes worth and then I want to go home at ten-forty. While this is only the be century, I am nevertheless disappointed that gradua Every member of the fac ulty, and every student, par ent, grandparent, sibling, and friend should be able to don 3-D glasses and at tend a virtual ceremony like be orchestrated with pomp and circumstance, with the audience clicking to clap, and students maneuvering their gown-clad characters to receive their diplomas, and what fun it would be to see if they can all toss their cyber hats in the air at the catching a cold from all the strangers around you and being able to get up from the bathroom whenever I want. I deem boring, I am most impressed and proud of my two older grandchildren: Maestro joined the Air Force, and Sneaks is going to be a nurse. There are few nobler pursuits. And yes, I do console be six years before I have can only hope that those six years dont pass as fast as this last one. Anyway, Chickweed (she has several nicknames) I ing High School. But youll before nobody cares about you do from now on. Good choices (not luck) to you. Love, Papa. GOOFY STUFF By VINCENT CARDEGIN When it comes to having spiritual wisdom, its not how much we know but how much we understand. Its one thing to have bags of information seeds stacked up in the barn of our mind, but more impor tantly, how many seeds have been planted and nurtured to take root within our heart? The devil and all of his helpers have worlds of spiritual knowl edge but they do not allow it to penetrate their conscience and change who they are. Likewise, humans can also learn and accumulate information and then select what they believe because each person has been given the gift of free will. So, when it comes to spiritu we read about how to live a victorious Christian life does not mean we will automatically be converted into a victorious overcomer. We must absorb His Word through our brain and into our spirit all the while learning how to surrender our will and discipline our flesh. Whew! These powder-puff sermons about strolling through storehouses of blessings are deceiving, to say the least. In reality, the true Christian life is not easy, in fact, the more serious we become the more difficult it will be. If we are gen uinely born again, our spirit is connected with Gods Spirit and we have a wonderful opportu nity to channel His energy into our being. If we can prevent our old corrupt nature from talking us out of it, we can be saved from ourselves but its going to take a burning passion and a total commitment. Being a follower of Jesus means we are accepting a golden oppor tunity to transform the way we think which will literally change who we are. Persistence and stubborn ness can be good if we can incorporate them into following Christ. Yes, being stubborn for God can be considered as faith, however, being stubborn against God is an attitude of rebellion. He appreciates and blesses us for being persistent but when He tells us no and we still keep pushing forward, we have fallen into disobedience and rebellion. There have been times in my life when I did not know whether to stop believing or to keep proceeding. Have you ever felt that way? Ive had doors slammed in my face and my share of disappointment, but I kept knocking even to the point of trying to force them open with a bulldozer. To say the least, this is not always the right way to proceed. Maybe God never intended for them to open and our demolition at including the misery and dis couragement from resentment and confusion. To understand if the dark-side is working against us or if the Lord is directing us we need discernment which comes from seeking Gods still small voice with all of our heart. Its also important to make sure we know our direction. Pray and research thoroughly before you move. If you are standing in a crossroad and not sure where to go, do something positive while you are waiting for His confirmation. If youve been praying for a long time and have not heard anything, I once heard someone say, while waiting for a door to open, praise Him in the hall way. If you are really serious, you can declare a personal fast in order to become more spiritually sensitive. There is no need to broadcast this on social media or tell everyone William F.

Proposition 8Defense of Marriage proposal in California 2008, stat ed that only marriage between a man and a woman is valid. After the voters approved the proposal the progressives staged a massacre of all supporters of Proposition 8. They published the names of anyone who gave money to help pass the law. These donors were personally and vi ciously attacked and many lost their positions. The state of Utah was boycot ted, websites sprung up to make emotional appeals for voters to alter their vote. Churches who were pro Proposition 8 were labeled as homophiles. This scorched earth rack eteering policy shut down enough voting supporters of the vote to reverse the results of Proposition 8. The progressive strate gy is to intimidate anyone who is considered a po tential rival by making an Anyone who challenges progressive ideology will be personally targeted and annihilated. When a person surrenders and plays ball they are pro tected and can become clandestine members of the ruling gang. Paying up by supporting and saying the right things is simply extortion to stay in business. The blatant racketeer ing of the progressive movement should be an insult to every free dom-loving citizen of the United States. These banana republic tactics are meant to frighten us to self-censor our First Amendment rights. Instead, Americans have to do their duty to listen and forcefully voice their opinions. Citizens need to stand up and utilize our Free dom of Speech even if power and money to illustrate these brutal uses of power. Only fearless patriots can salvage our exceptional republic from style thugs. See HOLLAND, Page 20
you see. By the way, fasting is not always be the denial of other activities along with dedicating quiet time alone with Him. When you discover all of the basic fundamentals and requirements that are associated with your goals, you may realize you are simply not ready to proceed with your goals at this time or maybe not at all. Yes, God can move mountains but He does not put the cart before the horse or force you to cooperate. He can influence others, give you favor, and present opportunities but most of the time, its our diligence and perse verance that helps us to be in the position to press forward. He is preparing a path for you behind the scenes that can utilize your strengths and will be a perfect fit for you. However, our obedi ence and patience are critical factors as we follow His plans and not our own. Dr. Holland is a Christian minister, author, and community outreach, chaplain.

MAGLIO HERNANDO SUN WRITER (and publisher) Weve heard that June is adopt a cat month. Back in March, The Hernando Sun newspaper adopted two 10 month old cats from the SPCA over in Brooksville. We were just going to adopt one cat, but they informed us that the cat we picked had a twin brother and we ended up with two. We have named them Joseph Jo-Jo Pulitzer and William Willy Randolph Hearst in honor of the newspaper moguls that revolutionized the news paper industry through yellow (sensational) jour nalism at the end of 19th century. Pulitzer and Hearst havent been much help in advising us on yellow journalism or newspaper related tasks in general but, they do provide much comic relief. Hearst was thinking about taking up photography at the paper, but found the camera strap to be of more interest than the camera. They cant really seem to stay awake while on the computer either. Like the real Pulitzer and Hearst, owners of the rival newspapers The New York World and The New York Journal respectively, American Legion Auxiliary, Charles E. Murray Unit 186 in Brooksville recently presented scholarships to graduating seniors. F.W. Springstead High School senior Chelsey Jones was awarded a $500.00 Edu cation Scholarship. Nature Coast Technical High School graduating senior and Valedictorian Oliv ia Schlum-Hughes was awarded a $500.00 Educa tion Scholarship. Central High School graduating senior Dina Tamburrino was presented a $500.00 Past Presidents Parley Scholarship. Pictured with Auxiliary Education Chair Lynda Anderson are Chelsey Jones and Olivia Schlum-Hughes. Not pic tured is Dina Tamburrino. Auxiliary Awards scholarships Pictured from left are: Lynda Anderson, Auxil iary Education Chair and Chelsea Jones, 2018 graduate of Springstead High School BELOW from left are: Lynda Anderson, Auxiliary Educa tion Chair and Chelsea Jones, 2018 graduate of NCT, Olivia Schlum-Hughes our Pulitzer and Hearst are quite competitive. If Pulitzer is using the facil ities, Hearst will position himself on top of the litter box to get a good swat in while his brother is doing his business or pounce upon him as he exits. Pulitzer cannot let Hearst get the upper hand and this will result in a high speed as well as personal attacks (mostly aimed at the neck). All in all our two cats here at The Hernando Sun keep our spirits high and we can now proudly tout ourselves as having a Pulitzer and a Hearst. Now what other newspaper can say that? Now are you wondering where you can get your own helpful kitty or two? Here are some options: Brooksville SPCA: 9075 Grant St, Brooksville (352) 596-7000 Hernando County Animal Services: 19450 Oliver St. Brooksville (352) 796-5062.
