What we are thankful for

November 28, 2017 - 00:40

This is the time to remember what you are thankful for. We, at The Hernando Sun, would like to take a few moments to remember some of the people who helped us to build this paper.

It all started on Nov. 11, 2014 when Hernando Today closed their doors after almost 28 years. There were a number of us that felt a void had been created in our community. A local paper is so important for the identity of a community.

September 17, 2017 - 10:44

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

It was here where early residents gathered for community picnics and celebrations.

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.

At the end of May high schools in the area celebrated their graduates.
