4x in 5 years: Monster Transmission makes Inc. 5000 list

Making Inc. Magazine’s 5000 list is quite an accomplishment, but doing it for 4 times within 5 years is an even bigger one.

Businesses apply to be listed, but only the fastest growing companies in America make the cut. This is determined by a number of factors including gross sales over a three year time period (which cannot be under $1 million) and employee count. The figures submitted are certified by a CPA.

Early days of Spring Hill

The 50th anniversary of the grand opening of Deltona Corp’s Spring Hill community was on April 30 of this year. The county and Hernando County Chamber of Commerce will be commemorating the anniversary on July 27th at The Lake House, which was once Spring Hill’s community center. It was here where early residents gathered for community picnics and celebrations.

Blueberry Festival past, present & future

The Florida Blueberry Festival notified the City of Brooksville that they are suspending the festival in downtown Brooksville, that they will not be entering into the lease for the Quarry Golf Course, and they will be vacating their City Hall office space by July 17, 2017. This has left the community abuzz with ideas on what a future festival could be and what should become of the quarry golf course. Out of the fray of ideas in regards to a festival, John Lee, owner of Coney Island, is taking the reigns and moving forward confidently with a continuation of a blueberry festival.
