Hernando County Soccer Roundup

by Jonathan Stone


The week got off to a blistering start for Kris Brooks and the Central High School Bears boys soccer team. They faced off against the travelling Anclote Sharks arriving on Ken Austin Parkway on Monday evening. The Bears, came away 5-3 victors and started the week on the right foot. Sadly this wasn’t to continue as they faced off against old foes Trinity Catholic on Wednesday night. Trinity toppled the Bears 8-3.

Public Land Cleanup

Just Southwest of Inverness is located one of my favorite forests, the Citrus Wildlife Management Area, a part of the Withlacoochee State Forest.  Having practically grown up while hunting those woods, I’ve watched the property go through many cycles of change. Most of those changes have been great improvements, such as the prescribed burning programs, additions of acreage to the area as well the management practices implemented to conserve the deer herd.

Hernando Christian Academy Soccer is not Just for the Boys

“We want to get stronger,” said Coach Crawford.

Since 2014, Hernando Christian Academy (HCA) boys soccer team has struggled to fill the roster in order to compete within their district, but thankfully the girls stepped in to fill the empty spots.

Hernando Christian Academy is the only boys’ soccer team that is eligible to have both boys and girls on their roster in Hernando County.

According to the FHSAA rules which has been in effect for over a decade:


Venison, what to do? Make a Stew!

Maybe it’s the ingredients; deer meat tenderized by a few hours of simmering, a variety of hearty vegetables taking their natural place alongside, and a thick and rich broth that ties all of the flavors together.  Maybe it’s because it’s a deeply satisfying meal, all in one bowl that just makes you feel good all over and warms your insides, too. Maybe it’s the knowledge that your creation is built around the success of a memorable hunt.  But, whatever it is; it’s delicious!
