ON THE COVER: Growth transforms the face of Hernando County. Photos:Agriculture, though still important, now shares the economic stage; a booming population has made heavy traffic like this on State Road 50 common; and services for those people are expanding, typified by construction at HCA Oak Hill Hospital. Times artist Trich Redman designed the cover. Times photographers Robert Rogers and Olie Stonerook took the photographs.
