Fuel Tanker Overturns
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Four people were injured, homes were evacuated and both
lanes of traffic were shut down on Wednesday evening, follow-
ing a wreck between a tanker truck and a 1994 Dodge. .
According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, at approxi-
mately 9:43 p.m., Leonard Japeth Galbraith, 33, of Madison,
was seriously injured as he was traveling south on US 27 in
Gadsden County in a 2006 Volvo semi tanker truck. At the same
time, Henry McCray, 45, of Midway, was also traveling south in
the Dodge car.
McCray slowed to make a u-turn through the paved turn-
around. Galbraith failed to slow in time, causing the front of his
semi to strike the rear of McCray's Dodge.
McCray's car rotated counterclockwise and came to a final
rest,., facing north in the paved turnaround.
Galbraith's semi continued south and began to overturn on
The tanker was loaded with 3,500 gallons of fuel and the
fuel spill resulted in both lanes of traffic being shut down.
Galbraith was taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital,
where he was treated for serious injuries.
McCray and his passengers, Sebrina Lockwood, 37, of Mid-
way, and Kenyattia Flowers, 2, of Midway, were all taken to Tal-
lahassee Memorial Hospital, where they were treated for minor

I see are timid men and confused women. Where have all the
real men gone? We are at war, the most dangerous war we have

I See Jesus Etched In The Lines
I look around me at church on Sundays. I see and feel the
joy and the pain that each of the people feels.
I see my father, who has made it a habit that he doesn't want
to break to be at church every time the door opens. If he has to
miss, he's miserable. Some of the people miss because they have
excuses. Bobby Bembry will have to have a reason for him to
I can tell when the pastor and the Sunday School teachers
are having good days and when they are having bad days. If you
look in their eyes, you can see it, too.
There are folks in the church who have aches and pains.
Many of the pains are associated witi growing, older, but, every
once in a while, you have something radical that allows God to
teach you the meaning of the word "through." The people at the
church I attend will know what I mean by that, especially Sister
I see children who are going through their formative years
and experiencing all the angst and awkwardness that accompa-
nies it. I see some of them struggling because they have parents
who won't come to church with them. I see some of them strug-
gling because they don't have a mother who can come to church
I see my mentally challenged sister Abbie, who we recently
put in a class with the older girls and in children's church, come
to life as she enjoys being around Mary, Erika, Ashlyn, Tiffany,
Rebecca, Bethany, Ethan, Chloe, Cody, Devin, J.W., Georgia
Emmie and Abbie have a special bond between them. Em-
mie loves helping Abbie with projects. Mary works really well
with Abbie. The two of them recently made a light switch cov-
er, which will be put in Abbie's room in the new house when it
is built. Don't tell Mary and Emmie, but Abbie thinks she is
helping them. Maybe she is.
I see a lot of things at the church, but most of all, I see Je-
sus etched in the lines of the faces of the older people and in the
smiles of the younger people. In everyone, I see Jesus in the
eyes, even through the pain and in the joy.

N) Army, has ever trained, or been equipped to fight in such

never completely be rid of terrorists, and this war may last a
hundred or more years. Ignoring all this, the greatest nation in
the world's politician's are running from the greatest threat the
free world has ever known.

many years ago, thanks Gunny.
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The de-
cayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling, which
thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person who
has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is
more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable
creature and has no chance of ever being free unless made and
kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

Lawmakers Have Too Little To Do
A story on National Public Radio shared the earth-shaking
news that legislators in Arkansas are discussing a law that will
officially set the way Arkansas should be spelled and punctuat-
ed when possessive. A-r-k-a-n-s-a-s-'-s. Right, guys. As any
English teacherand good English student knows, that is one of
the laws of apostrophes; you don't need to clutter up the state's
laws with it.
Which just shows that lawmakers do not have enough to do.
Arkansas does not have any issues like health care, homeless-
ness, traffic, crime, or fraud, so their elected officials are digging
for a job that will make the headlines. They have to run for re-
election, after all.
Well, Florida has nothing to brag about in that department.
Our legislators have just got the session under way, and a major
issue has arisen. Is it property taxes? The drop-opt rate? Identi-
ty theft? No. Our guys are homing in on our state song.
If I. were a betting woman,,I. would %,ager that fewer than
half of the residents of Florida can name the state song. In the
years when I teach ninth-grade English, I do a unit on the song,
and have yet to discover a student who knows what it is. So we
research it on the computer, learn to read a map from the Oke-
fenokee to the Gulf of Mexico, and then sing along to the strum-
ming guitar. At least they know that Florida has a state song.
Some of our lawmakers are making objection to the old-
fashioned "black language" words that Stephen Foster used in
writing "Way Down upon the Suwannee River." Have they not
looked up the more modern versions where the words have been
changed to standard English? Those old-timey terms are no
Others would rather have a song that reflects the entire state,
like "Florida, My Florida." Okay, I'll go along with that. The
only problem is that I never heard that song. Someone will have
to mount a campaign to teach it statewide.
Not being a native Floridian, I have little opinion about what
the state song should be. However, I believe that you who have
a vested interest in Florida should be aware that the legislators
are discussing a change, and you should weigh in with your
opinion. Contact your elected representatives; let them know
where you stand.
And if you should learn "Florida, My Florida," come teach
it to me. Just in case.
After all, our legislators must have something to do.

nights great for
sleeping; hot, sunny days inwhich to enjoy sum-
mery things like hiking, boating and even swim-
ming. Springtime in Florida, isn't it great?! Lots
of non-Floridians must think so since reports are
that 84.6 million of them 'visited the state in
2006. Take it easy, folks, Florida is just a small
peninsula, already overloaded with huge and
.heavy super structures of all kinds we just may
sink into the ocean like an old Indian woman
once predicted. Thank the Lord that the Cross-
Florida Canal didn't make it to the finish line!
Another thing which intrigued us was Janet
Schrader's column on pilaf (yes, that is the dic-
tionary's spelling preference, according to the
American Heritage 1973 version, which we have
found to be most reliable). Colloquially pro-
nounced perlow since our earliest recollection,
this dish, cooked in a cast iron wash pot was the
featured favorite of rural 'get-togethers' (parties)
when we were young. One of the neighbors
would decide to have a 'perlow' on the next Sat-
urday evening and the word would be passed,
usually by the man of the family on horseback.
After everyone had gathered (entire families
were invited) one or two fat hens were killed,
dressed and dropped into the already boiling wa-
ter. The men kept the fire going. When the meat
was almost tender, rice was added. Seasoning
was simple,'usually just salt and pepper. Biscuits
baked in wood stove ovens (delicious) and pots
of hot coffee accompanied the potof'perlow'.
The hostess usually had a huge chocolate
cake for dessert and sometimes a neighbor or
two would donate their version for the party.
Conversation and laughter kept the adults in
good humor and sometimes a little moonshine
threaded its way carefully among some of the
men folk. They stood around the 'piece de resis-
tance' the wash pot or sat on stumps or box-
es while they gossiped about politics, crops and
the weather. The women sat on the back porch,
also gossiping but about which guys and gals
were sweet on which others or about babies, new
patterns and recipes and their gardens. The teen-
agers spent their time playing games such as
'spin the bottle' 'post office' and 'kitty wants a
comer'. Everybody always had a wonderful,
evening and seldom was there any trouble. Now,
those were the good ol' days! Simple pleasures
are the best.
While.we were visiting family last week we
spent about three days in the cutest A-Frame
house with Vicki and Sharon. Vicki had rented it
it is next
door to the
come up to the back fence and eat apples from
anyone's hand. There is also an exotic petting
zoo on the property but we only saw some buf-
falo, goats and an ostrich besides the horses and
cows. The house though was as 'cute as a bug'.
A huge brick fireplace and chimney extends
from floor to loft ceiling and is the only separa-
tion between living and dining-kitchen area. A
large porthole-like window is near the tip of the
A over the smallfront porch. Two bedrooms, a
bath and a small, short spiral staircase leading to
the loft and a fairly large back porch finish the
first floor. The loft is set off from the lower floor
with a white fence and is roomy enough for a
large sitting area and a secluded bedroom. The
first two days we were there were quite cool and
we really enjoyed the warmth of a good fire.
There are large oaks in the yard and the girls are
busily raking leaves and planting ground covers.
It seems that we must again close with sad
news. One of the nicest people, we knew passed
away last week. Charlotte Johnson had a smile
to which no one could resist responding. It
seemed the sun was always shining around the
reception desk at Lee Elementary when Char-
lotte was there. Our sincerest sympathy to Mur-
ray and to all of the Bell and Johnson families.
We also were so sorry to hear that Myrtice
Payne has been in the hospital and is now at
Lake Park we certainly hope that means that
:sheis improving., ,.;., ., ,, .. ,
Also Mayor Ernestine Kinsey, who has real-.
ly had a long bout with shingles and has recent-
ly been for treatment to Mayo Jacksonville, is
now in the hospital, probably the Mayo.
Anyway, please put both her and Simon on
your prayer list and Myrtice Payne.
Good news, hopefully, for Gail Carter who
underwent a second (partial) knee replacement
and has spent several days in the hospital in Tal-
lahassee recently. She returned home .today,
(Monday). Please add her to your prayer list for
a successful recovery.
The Lee Senior Citizens could really use
some volunteer help at their Lee Day booth -
each year whatever profit they make is returned
to the community in donated lap robes for nurs-
ing home residents and 'blankies' for adoptive
children. So, if anyone is willing to give these
'elderly' ladies a hand, it will certainly be appre-
ciated. And, be sure to buy some quilt tickets and
take a chance on winning a lovely quilt. We hope
to see you there on Lee Day.

Living Well Week
Raising kids, Eating right, Spending, smart, Living well -
that's the theme of National Living Well Week, March 11-17,
2007. Officially passed in 2005 by the U.S. Senate, Living Well
Week is sponsored by the National Extension Association of
Family and Consumer Sciences. The purpose of the week is to
help people become aware of the educational programs and re-
sources that are available through Extension to improve the
quality of life.
Whether you are looking for information in nutrition, food
safety, money management, consumer rights or child develop-
ment, the local Extension office probably has the answer. The
University Extension System has long provided researched
based information through classes, fact sheets, websites and
Extension home economics education began in the early
1900's along with agriculture as a community outreach of the
land grant university system. In the early years, home demon-
stration agents provided training in canning, sewing, meal plan-
ning and home management to adults in clubs organized
throughout the county. Youth learned these skills through 4-H
clubs. The goal was to help families maximize their resources
to increase the quality of life for their families.
Although we still answer food preservation questions, coun-
ty programs vary according to the needs identified by local ad-
visory boards. Today, Extension family consumer science pro-
grams certify safe food handlers and child care providers; as
well as teach classes in home buying, nutrition & wellness, mon-
ey management, pre-marriage, and parenting. We answer many
clientele questions on a wide variety of topics related to con-

LOCAL/REGIONAL CRIME REPORTS
Pensacola Attornev Man Arrested For Grand Theft, Madison County..
Gregory R. Miller, United States Attorney for the Northern
District of Florida, announced that following a four-day trial
ending February 22, a federal jury convicted attorney Tommy E.
McPherson, 69, of Pensacola, Florida of bankruptcy fraud
(Count One of the Indictment) and false statements in connec-
tion with bankruptcy (Counts Two and Three of the Indictment).
McPherson is a practicing Pensacola attorney licensed in the
State of Florida.
Evidence at trial proved that the McPhersons devised a
scheme to defraud the Bankruptcy Court. McPherson's wife,
Jeanette McPherson, filed a voluntary bankruptcy petition in
United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of
Florida in May of 2002. The Petition, prepared by Tommy
McPherson's law office, sought the discharge of approximately
$41,000 in debt, much of which was declared to be due to gam-
bling losses. In the Petition, Jeanette McPherson swore that she
resided at a friend's apartment in Pensacola, Florida, that she
paid monthly rent, and that she received monthly alimony from
Tommy McPherson. At a creditor's meeting, Jeanette McPher-
son claimed that she had been legally separated from Tommy
McPherson since December 1999. She further claimed that he
held no assets which could be liquidated to pay her debts. Tom-
my McPherson attended the meeting as an "interested party,"
and offered to the Bankruptcy Trustee a false "separation agree-
ment" to support his wife's claims.
Because of these and other representations, the Bankruptcy
Court discharged the debt in September of 2002, None of these
representations was true. The Federal Bureau of Investigation
determined that Tommy and Jeanette McPherson were not legal-
ly separated, and in fact resided in the same Pensacola house-
hold. Evidence further revealed that the McPhersons jointly held
assets not disclosed to the Bankruptcy Court, including bank ac-
counts, an automobile and personal property, which assets were
sufficient to satisfy Jeanette McPherson's debts.
Jeanette McPherson entered a plea of guilty to bankruptcy
fraud on February 8, and is scheduled to be sentenced by Senior
United States District Judge Lacey A. Collier on April 24. Tom-
my McPherson is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Collier on
May 8. The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau
of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. At-
torney Michelle M. Heldmyer.
Embezzlement And Cheating
On Thursday March 8, Suwannee County Sheriff's Investi-
gator Chris Fry arrested Donald Eugene Bullock, 41, 10216
129th Rd, Live Oak, FL. Bullock was charged with grand theft,
embezzlement and cheating.'
According to a Suwannee County Sheriff's Office report,
upon a detailed investigation Investigator Fry determined that
between the dates of February 3, 2000 and February 6, 2007
Bullock embezzled over $100,000 from Southern Homes Insur-
ance owned by Wayne Frier. Bullock as an employee of South-
ern Homes Insurance deposited checks made out to Southern
Homes Insurance into his personal business account.
Bullock was arrested and transported to the Suwannee
County Jail on the stated charges. Bond was set at $105,000 and
he was able to bond through a local bonding agency.
Solves Car Burglaries
A series of car burglaries from last year was solved and two
people arrested after the suspects returned to one of the same
neighborhoods and an attentive neighbor took notice.
According to the Columbia County Sheriff's Office,
charged with burglary and grand theft is Christopher Alan
Boyle, 20,' of Gainesville. Joshua Charles Schmidt, 19, of
Gainesville, was also charged with burglary of a vehicle and
Boyle and Schmidt were stopped after a resident in the
neighborhood on Lona Loop called the Sheriff's Office to report
a suspicious vehicle. The two were arrested when deputies
found a checkbook inside the car occupied by Boyle and
Schmidt that belonged to another resident in the neighborhood
who discovered he had forgotten to lock his vehicle.
Further investigation linked both to a series of similar bur-
glaries in September and October of 2006 in the same general
area. Much of the property stolen in the earlier burglaries was
recovered and will be returned to the owners.
"This was a combination of luck and good, old-fashioned de-
tective work," said Sheriff Bill Gootee, "I'm real proud of the
way Detective Green handled this case and extremely pleased
we were able to recover many of the stolen items. The concept
of neighbors watching-over. neighbors regardless of how formal
or informal remains a key to fighting crime."
Both Boyle and Scmidt were each charged with nine counts
of burglary and nine counts of grand theft in connections with

We all were aware that we had
been in the presence of one of the
true Saints of God, and at 82, she
is more determined than ever to
make a huge difference in the lives
of the people God has sent her to
minister to. She will return to
Zambia on March 15. She asks for
the continued prayers of the peo-
ple of God.
Our own Angela Kelly is ask-
ing for our help for a new program
beginning at the Teen Challenge
Women's Center in Fort Myers,
Florida, where she is part of this
vital ministry. The new ministry
will be called the "Goshen Bean-.
Scene" where various coffees will
be served at the center. Along with
the coffee comer, beautiful hand-
crafted jewelry will also be avail-
able for purchase. If you would
like to donate to this worthwhile
project, please mark "coffee min-
istry" in your memo and drop in
the offering or come by the office.
This is a way that we can encour-
age Angela while helping many
others to benefit greatly from this
important and life-changing out-
reach in Fort Myers.
Our church will be working
on a picture directory and provid-
ing new addresses for all of our
church family. Please call the

as they have recently returned
from South Carolina where Bob
conducted the funeral of a very
dear uncle who was like a second
father to him.
Also please keep Faith, Pastor

your prayers as they recently expe-
rienced the death of her grandfa-
ther, Gene Browning, last week.
His "going home celebration" was
held locally at Fellowship Baptist

know that it will be delicious
again. There will not be a dinner
on March 21st due to Spring
Break. All the donations on
Wednesday nights go to the sum-
mer camp program for our youth.
Please continue to pray for
our troops who defend us all

churches, all pastors, and all peo-
ple who spread the good news

The Madison County Training School
Alumni Association will host its fifthth tri-an-
nual school reunion during the weekend of July
27-29, in Madison, Florida. The reunion pro-
vides an opportunity for the attendees to recon-
nect with their class and schoolmates and to
pay homage to the teachers and staff members
who served them during \the challenging and
formative years of their early education.
The festivities will begin with registration
and a "getting to know you" social and seafood
dinner on Friday evening. This will be followed
by a barbeque cookout on Saturday afternoon.
Saturday night's events will commence with a
buffet dinner followed by an entertaining pro-
gram of skits, roasts, awards and a multimedia
presentation. The night will conclude with a
salute to the "old school," with an "Oldies and
Goldies" dance. Then, on Sunday morning, all
will be re united for a very spe-
cial and spiritually moving and
enriching worship service. At-
tendees will then have an op-
portunity to bid farewell to
their schoolmates and friends
at a luncheon which will be
served immediately following
There will be a registration
of $50 for adults and $20 for
minors. The fees will cover the
admission, meals and refresh-
ments for all reunion events. A
special invitation is being ex-
tended to Suwannee River High School and
Suwannee River Junior College alumni and
graduates, since these institutions shared the
same site and much of the same heritage as the
old high school.
This is projected to be one of the largest re-
union events 'in Madison County. A gathering
of well over 300 schoolmates and their families
is expected at this reunion event. The locations
for all of the event activities have not been fi-
nalized, but only spacious, comfortable facili-
ties are under consideration. For those who are
not on the mailing list and have not received an
invitation and registration form in the past.
please contact a MCTS schoolmate, or Mrs.
Johnnie Mae Burgess at 850-973-2384, or Mrs.
Alma Twiggs at 850-973-6706. Registration
forms and the details of all events will be
mailed during the month of March.

Large Enough To Serve You, Small Enough To Care!!!
By Jeff Hugo
We are all connected; therefore, we are all af-
fected. The water that courses through the veins
of Wakulla County certainly impacts the quality oi
life we all enjoy. Whether it flows in caves hun-
dreds of feet beneath us, in crystal clear surface
rivulets, or in gushing springs that pour into the
rich fishery of Apalachee Bay, the water impacts
our lives. In turn, we impact the water. The state
of our relationship with the water, mutually bene-
ficial or adversarial, creates a clih- y,; ., ,.
mate of comfort or discomfort
At Wakulla Springs State Park f '..
we recognize the struggle to pro-
vide resource-based recreanon
while preserving, interpreting. and
restoring natural and cultural re-
sources. Left unmanaged, the re- ,
suits of human activity would imn- -
peril the ecosystem. Invas\ie ex-
otics, suppression of natural] oc-.
curring fire, or simple overuse are a
few of the culprits that can nega-
tively impact the resource.
At the forefront of preserving and restoring
the natural resources of Wakulla Springs State
Park is our Park Biologist, Scott Savery. Scot
spends little time behind his computer because he
is most often in his "outdoor" office tending to the
natural resources. Yes, he is often out on his own
or with a small volunteer task force removing mi
mosa trees, Japanese climbing fern, or camphor
His greatest battle began ten sears ago while
out on a plant identification boat tour While ex-
amining a plant sample, he realized he was dealing
with the coarse and gritty native of Sri Lanka
known as hydrilla. Jess Van Dyke of the state's
Bureau of Invasive Plants put it to Scott this way
After five years of fighting the plant by hand
and mechanical means, the outlook looked grim
The spring was choking, the swimming area
clogged, and the river nearly impassable. Ever
though millions of pounds oflhydrilla had been re
moved from the spring and the river, a new
weapon was needed.
Aquathol was recruited. The herbicide woulc
turn the hydrilla leaves to goo, but not harm the na
tive vegetation in the river. At long last, Scott Say
ery's war with the hydrilla met with a victory
Even though the herbicide does not kill the hy-
drilla roots and the plant comes back, it can now be
A strong work ethic, positive attitude and con
tributions as a team player make him a valuable as
set to the Florida Park Service. These same quali
ties serve him well in his role as a mentor and
leader for other employees.
It is no wonder, why Scott Savery is being
honored with the 2006 Jim Stevenson Resource
fIi Remington Ave. Thomasville, Georgia
Manager of the Year award. It is the state's high-
- est environmental honor. It recognizes Scott's
s dedication to protecting natural resources within
f Florida's award-winning state parks. Mr. Savery.
- was chosen by a committee of environmental pro-
fessionals representing the Florida Audubon Soci-
ety and The Nature Conservancy.
s Vigilance is often a requirement of good stew-
ardship. Scott has certainly exemplified that. Ap-
- preciation and understanding are the siblings of
... \igilance. What better way for
N :. each of us to feed the family of en-
'. \ironmental stewardship than to
S"' n make a point of getting out and en-
jo% ing it.

Florida Bass -- ;
Center. ) u
day, Feb. 23, the FWC dedicated its new
hatchery and research center to the propa-
gation and conservation of the unique
Florida strain of largemouth bass. The
center is located on 186 acres in the heart
of the Withlacoochee State Forest in
' Sumter County.
The Florida Bass Conservation Center
will produce a variety of freshwater fish,
including Florida largemouth bass, striped
bass, sunshine bass, bream and channel
catfish. These hatchery-reared fish will
help biologists meet freshwater fisheries
management needs in waters that may
benefit from fish stocking.
Florida is world-renowned as the
"Fishing Capital of the World." Large-
mouth bass are the most popular freshwa-
ter sport fish in the. United States; the
Florida strain is hugely prized by anglers
because it reaches a larger size than its
The Florida Bass Conservation Center
replaces the agency's 1960s-era facility.
The outdated hatchery played an impor-
tant role in freshwater fisheries manage-
ment for nearly 40 years. However to-
day's conditions call for updated technol-
ogy and new techniques to meet the chal-
lenges of modern fish management. The
new facility will be able to produce up to
three times as many fish annually as the
A modern fish hatchery conserves wa-
ter, reduces fish loss to predators, and
produces disease-free fish with the right
genetic makeup to ensure their best possi-
ble chance of survival in the waters in
which they are stocked. This 21st century,
state-of-the-art fish production and re-
search facility does all that and is just one
more way the FWC is working to keep
Florida's freshwater fisheries healthy and
ahead of its competition.

produce more fish per gallon, at a much
lower cost per fish. Using raceways also
reduces predation by birds, saves water
and energy, and allows better control of
parasites and diseases. New fish-feeding
technology is also being developed at the
center and, along with state-of-the art fil-
tration systems, will help fish grow faster
.and decrease mortality.
Historically, stocking fish was unnec-
essary because natural conditions in Flori-
da waters supported thriving populations
of bass. Reproduction was more than ad-
equate to replace natural mortality and
what anglers harvested.
However, development, agricultural
runoff, drained wetlands and stabilized
water levels have changed environmental
conditions. In some instances, these
changes have created circumstances
which limit bass survival in the i early
months of life. Stocking advanced finger-
lings (5- to 6-inch baby bass) increases
the likelihood that more bass will reach
the size anglers desire.
With the ever-changing Florida land-
scape, the Florida Bass Conservation Cen-
ter will help the FWC meet increasing de-
mands on Florida's freshwater fisheries
and ensure safe and sustainable use of
these resources for generations to come.

The person who was to become
St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland,
was born in Wales about AD 385. His
given name was Maewyn, and he al-
most didn't get the job of bishop of
Ireland because he lacked the re-
Far from being a saint, until he
was 16, he considered himself a pa-
gan. At that age, he was sold into
slavery by a group of Irish marauders,
that raided his village. During his
captivity, he became closer to God.
He escaped from slavery after six
years and went to Gaul where he
studied in the monastery under St.
Germain, bishop of Auxerre for a pe-
riod of twelve years. During his train-
ing he became aware that his calling
was to convert the pagans to Chris-
His wishes were to return to Ire-
land, to convert the native pagans to
Christianity. But his superiors instead
appointed St. Palladius. But two
years later, Palladius transferred to
Scotland. Patrick, having adopted
that Christian name earlier, was then
appointed as second bishop to Ire-
Patrick was. quite successful at
winning converts. And this fact upset
the Celtic Druids. Patrick was arrest-
ed several times, but escaped each
time. He traveled throughout Ireland,
establishing monasteries across the
country. He also set up schools and
churches, which would aid him in his
conversion of the Irish country to
His mission in Ireland lasted for
thirty years. After that time, Patrick
retired to County Down. He died on
March 17 in AD 461. That day has
been commemorated as St. Patrick's
Day ever since.
Much Irish folklore surrounds St.
Patrick's Day. Not much of it is actu-
Some of this lore includes the be-
lief that Patrick raised people from
the dead. He also is said to have giv-
en a sermon from a hilltop that drove
all the snakes from Ireland. Of
course, no snakes were ever native to
Ireland, and some people think this is
a metaphor for the conversion of the

One traditional icon of the day is
the shamrock. And this stems from a
more bona fide Irish tale that tells
how Patrick used the three-leafed
shamrock to explain the Trinity. He
used it in his sermons to represent
how the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit could all exist as separate ele-
ments of the same entity. His follow-
ers adopted the custom of wearing a
shamrock on his feast day.
The St. Patrick's Day custom
came to America in 1737. That was
the first year St. Patrick's Day was
publicly celebrated in this country, in
Today, people celebrate the day
with parades, wearing of the green, and
drinking beer. One reason St. Patrick's
Day might have become so popular is
that it takes place just a few days before
the first day of spring. One might say it
has become the first green of spring.

The History Of Springtime Tallahassee
Springtime Tallahassee began in 1967 as a
concept to keep Tallahassee as the state capital.
At the time, Florida had its first Legislature
based on reapportionment in which Florida leg-
islators from southern and central Florida were
insisting that the capitol be in a more central-
Tallahassee's civic and business leaders
mapped a strategy and proposed it to their leg-
islative delegation asking for help. As the leg-
islative session advanced, unkind comments
about Tallahassee were made by legislators.
This prompted the Junior League of Talla-
hassee with the Junior League taking the south-
ern and central legislators' wives on a bus tour'
of old homes in Tallahassee and nearby Monti-
cello. This drew an enthusiastic response. The
Rotary Club produced a Chamber of Com-
merce bulletin called "You can see everything
in Tallahassee in one hour!," and published an
historical tourist volume called Tallahassee In
View which included excerpts from the long
history of Florida's capital city and the sur-
By Autumn of 1967 there were 20 various
groups planning the First Annual Tallahassee
Spring Festival. The first festival featured the
Apalachee Jubilee with a parade and pageant
commemorating the selection of Tallahassee as
the capital of territorial Florida.
In 1969 A.F. "Pete" Rich lead a men's
group to organize and give direction and finan-
cial support to the idea of a festival and his
wife, Mrs. Jean Rich, served as General Chair-
man of the festival. A chartered organization
called SpringTime Tallahassee, Inc. dedicated
itself to advdertise and promote the history and
beauty of. Tallahassee and its people to all
Floridians and welcome them.
By 1970, Sprintime Tallahassee member-
ship was increased to 200. By 1971, Springtime
Tallahassee changed the format and divided the
organization into five krewes which would de-
pict Tallahassee history by historical periods.

A Krewe is an organiza-
tion that puts on a parade and
or a ball for the Carnival sea-
son. The term is best known
for its association with New
Orleans Mardi Gras, but is also
used in other Carnival celebra-
tions around the Gulf of Mexi-
co Coast, such as the Gasparil-
la Pirate Festival in Tampa,
Florida, and Springtime Talla-
This enabled each period
to have a float as well as an-
other entry of their choice into
the parade to represent their
era of history.
The Spanish Krewe is cur-
rently the largest krewe and
represents Spanish Florida
from 1528-1821 and Hernando
de Soto's explorations in Flori-
da in 1539. The Spanish
Krewe is engaged in numerous
throughout the year. Spanish
Krewe participates heavily in
each of the fi\ e major parties
of Springtime Tallahassee,
plus Float Day.
American Territorial Krewe
The American Territorial
Krewe represents Florida
when it became a United
States territory. On March 4,
1824 Governor William P. Du-
val named Tallahassee the offi-
cial state capital. Later that
year, the town was. officially
named Tallahassee. kTallahas-,
see was incorporated in 1825.
The Antebellum Krewe
represents the period from
1825-1860 when northern
planters moved south to the
fertile lands of Leon County.
Tallahassee enjoyed social and
political development during
this period. The nephew of
Napoleon Bonaparte, Prince
Achille Murat and his wife
Catherine Willis Gray, the
grandniece of George Wash-
ington settled at Bellevue, and
became prominent citizens of
this community. Florida be-
came the 27th state in 1845
with a population of 66,500.
The krewe collects canned and
dry goods and gently used
coats and blankets for donation
to a local charity. The krewe's
basic theme is southern charm,
War and Reconstruction
The War and Reconstuc-
tion Krewe represents the peri-
od of 1860-1865 and the
American Civil War. Tallahas-
see was the only southern cap-
ital east of the Mississippi Riv-
er not captured by the Union
troops. War & Reconstruction
Krewe members wear period
clothing with women in dress-
es from the 1865-1900 time
period. This included bustled
dresses and hoop skirts. Men
are also suitably dressed for
our period. Our costume con-
sultant will help any Krewe
member find the perfect outfit.
Our time period includes the
Civil War and the reconstruc-
20th Century Krewe
The 20th Century Krewe
represents Tallahassee as it
grew from a sleepy Southern
town to become the thriving
capital city of the fourth-
largest state in the U.S. Florida
state government has been the
primary industry. Agriculture,
timber and cattle have also
played roles in the develop-
ment of the city's economy.
The population of Tallahassee
was only 3,000 at the begin-
ning of the century, and now
has a population of about

Though not truly a krewe,
it is a sepeate unit within
Springtime Tallahassee like a
sixth krewe. Two members of
Springtime are chosen to por-
tray Andrew Jackson and his
wife Rachel Jackson. Jackson
was chosen to represent
Springtime Tallahassee be-
cause of his service to Florida
