Get to Know Us: Sarah, Clyde and the Newspaper

Meet Sarah Nachin, one busy Hernando Sun features writer and author of several published books.


Sarah is a freelance writer and writes articles for our newspaper, the Hernando Sun. She also writes for a weekly newspaper in upstate New York and various magazines.

But her real passion in life is writing books and traveling. Her latest book is “The Odyssey of Clyde the Camel,” that she describes as a humorous travelogue as well as including a few fantasy elements.

Oak Hill Hospital leading the way in breast care

The figures are alarming. Approximately one in eight women (about 12.4 percent) in the US will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. Men are also at risk of breast cancer but far less  — only one in 1,000 men will develop this type of cancer. And, according to figures obtained from, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the most reliable and up-to-date information about breast cancer, the latest forecast for 2018 predicts 41,000 of those women are expected to die, even though death rates have been decreasing since 1989.

Tourism alive and kicking in Hernando County

According to the US Department of State and the US Census Bureau, only 10 percent of Americans owned a passport in 1990. Today, that figure has reached 42 percent but is largely the result of the 9/11 attacks and new laws ruling that Americans could no longer travel to and from Canada, Mexico and nearby Caribbean countries. It’s also a fact that the majority of Americans have never been outside the US.

That’s because Americans think there’s no place quite like home.
