Weeki Wachee Seafood Market


by Hernando Sun Staff

Al and Ellie Marceau own the Weeki Wachee Seafood market which opened its doors late last year. So far they have developed a strong relationship with locals and restaurant owners. They have great prices and fresh delicious seafood of many varieties. The gulf shrimp pinks are wonderful and their wild North Atlantic salmon melts in your mouth. Both are affordably priced. We even tried their octopus which we chopped up and sauteed with some garlic and olive oil. This was a hit.

Small Things Done with Great Love


by Pastor Hal Hester, Vineyard Christian Church

Little things done with great love will change the world. It is a concept borrowed from the life of Mother Teresa; the idea that the little things we do are what make a real impact rather than the big things we do on occasion. It is the idea that the real heroes of our lives are not just those who in moments of bravery act selflessly, but those who act selflessly day-by-day.

The cemetery was never a part of the church, but a family plot, part of the 160 acre Howell Plantation. In 1907, Robert J.
