Local dentists retiring

Statement from Dr. Augustiniak and Dr. Lu of Spring Hill Dental Associates regarding their retirement:

To All Our Patients:

We would like to thank you for your trust and confidence in allowing us to serve as your dentist  throughout the years.

For all of us however, life is filled with changes.  The time has come for a change in our lives.  It is with both happiness and regret that we announce our transition from active practice to retirement.  We will officially retire on May 28, 2019.  

A natural pairing: butcher shop and deli

From lamb and pork crown roasts, country bacon and homemade sausages and burgers to thick, 60-day, wet-aged ribeye steaks, traditional butcher shops offer high-quality, unusual cuts of meats prepared on the premises with huge amounts of personal pride.

One such quality purveyor of everything meaty is family-run Carlisle’s Neighborhood Meat Market. Recently relocated and expanded to newer and larger premises, its butcher shop is now at 7635 Horse Lake Road in Brooksville.

Spec house to help fund Nature Coast Builders Association


One of the houses featured in the 2019 Nature Coast Builders Association (NCBA) Parade of Homes is a spec house built by NCBA. The sale of this home will help to fund the Nature Coast Builders Association. 

The spec house was built by members of the association and some non-members under the management of Joe Mazzucco of Royal Coachman Homes. Pro-Line Tile donated the tile for the home, while the cabinets were donated by Cabinets Etc. Many of the other contributors donated time or provided a discount on their services.

Hernando Sun Reporter

When Dr. Brian Roebuck opened his practice in 1987, his sign-in ledger was a simple composition book commonly seen in high school and college writing classes.  The first patient signed in on December 9, 1987, and Delia Gagliardi signed the ledger the next day. 

Also a patient, Delia’s husband lived to be 94.  He always greeted Dr. Roebuck as “Friend.”

Faith-based group transforming lives


In 2017, a point-in-time count on just one night throughout America, found that more than a half a million people were homeless, according to the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development. 

Homelessness is described as “persons without a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence,” as defined by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act.
