News bulletin from Chinsegut Conservation Center
Folks in the greater Brooksville area are warned to be on the look out today for the gnomes pictured here. They are wanted in connection to today’s disappearance of one of their own at the Chinsegut Conservation Area. Marty Mushroom, photo not available at this time, was last seen in the company of Howdy McGnome, seen here greeting visitors to the area earlier in the day, and his cousin, Henry Winkler, see photo, who is known for his pranks and shenanigans in the community. It is thought that Henry has escaped the gnome-hunt and was last seen in the company of Shady Sue, a known cohort. They are thought to be holed up in the greater Spring Hill area. If you see them please be advised not to approach them as he is armed with a blunt instrument of some sort. Report any suspicious activity to 1-800-GNOMEGONEWRONG. Be sure to tune in to gnomes-in-the-news for further updates. Story and Photos by Sue Barley
Last Tuesday, Betty Kolar, a the student of Nature Photography, found a gnome resting on a trail marker. The Gnome, named Bernie is the Trail Master at Chinsegut Conservation Center. He belongs to the Gnome clan who live beneath the boardwalk at May’s Prairie. Bernie was given the trail name of “Black Boot Snail” because he walks as fast as a snail in his favorite black boots. Instructor, Alice Mary Harden, said, ”Good eye” when Betty found Bernie. Story and Photos by Betty Kolar
Participants that attended the Woodland Photography had to pick their best shot, give their gnome a name and a little backstory….
Some great creative photography and story-telling!
