Hernando County Reporter

The North Suncoast and the Times have been my home since I graduated from the Ohio State University 35 years ago. Every day I get to come work for one of the country’s finest newspapers with talented co-workers who share my passion for informing our readers about their community. From the latest development plan near their neighborhood to the price of their garbage service, there is no more relevant journalism than what we do here in Hernando County. I cherish your input, suggestions and story ideas.
