Remembering Hernando County Educator Cynthia Moore

On January 7, 2017 Hernando County lost an educator who devoted her life to the students she served. Over Cynthia Moore’s 40 years of service to Hernando County Schools, she taught 5th grade, was the President of the Hernando County Teacher’s Association (HCTA) for two terms, and was a member of FEA-Retired. She served one term as an elected official on the Hernando School Board. Cynthia volunteered at Brooksville Elementary School and often gave to families in need. She was also a member of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority for 42 years.

David Levy Yulee

David Levy Yulee

David Levy Yulee is a prominent historical figure of Florida. In 2000, he was named “Great Floridian” of the year. He is inextricably linked to several facets of Florida’s past, most notably the Confederacy, land development, the railroad industry, and our State Constitution. Early settlers of Hernando County have connections to Yulee. For instance, the millwright who built Yulee’s sugar mill in Homosassa was Joseph Hale, a founding member of Brooksville.

Thanksgiving: a state of mind

Giving thanks should be a daily deed. One of the current weaknesses in our culture is ungratefulness and taking what we have for granted. It is something that is blatantly apparent in the younger generations today as celebrities and the news media have molded their negative opinions of America and degraded values. Celebrities and media personalities have only been able to infiltrate these young minds because our foundation is folding. That foundation is the family unit.

Election Day Service at Holy Cross Lutheran in Spring Hill

On Election Day, Holy Cross Lutheran Church will offer a special service to reconcile the struggles citizens have faced during this election cycle. The service will be the first of its kind for Holy Cross Lutheran. Pastor Peter Morey who has been with Holy Cross Lutheran in Spring Hill since 2014, expressed deep concern with the toll the election has taken on spirituality in America.

"I have members of my congregation who are no longer welcome in their family's homes."

Discussion continues on alternative waste project

More discussion of the Alternative Waste to Energy Project took place at the October 25th, 2016 Commission meeting. The project is estimated to cost nearly $4 million per year, based on the number of tons of class I garbage processed at the facility to be built by Freedom Energy Hernando. The county is to pay Freedom Energy $39/ton to process the garbage- who will turn it into a fuel pellet and sell it to industrial end users. The project was at one point on the verge of cancellation, as the county's financial evaluation of the project determined it to be uneconomical.
