Summer Hampton

A sunny morning turned pitch black

On September 11th, 2001 Maricarmen Williams, current resident of Hernando County, was a 29 year old mom of two living in Staten Island. She was a Legal Assistant, Court Part Specialist and Translator for the New York County Defender’s Service. This was located at what we know today as Ground Zero.  The following is her recollection of the events that took place September 11, 2001. 

Buzz, Clip, Shave and Chop!

Hair salons and barber shops have been closed since March, but our hair hasn’t stopped growing! It’s been two months since the closure, so it’s safe to say we're all in dire need of a hair makeover. Hair salons have been open for about a week now, if they follow FL CDC guidelines. I stopped into a few shops around Hernando County to see what safety measures they’re taking and how they’re adapting to the new norm. 

One charitable organization helping another


The Life Center of Hernando county is an organization centered on “making a difference in the lives of young single mothers and their small children.” This organization changes women’s lives for the better and helps set them back on their feet and on track for a successful future. 

They do this through many ways, one example is twice a week the mothers attend a life skills class.
