    Special to the Citizen

    It was sometime back around 1995 or '96 when a young, local girl eagerly waited with anticipation for the Manatee Springs state park treasure hunt to begin.

    "Little Jo" had come to the park to join in the search for the lost pirate treasure and to witness the excitement of the parents and crowds, who would be cheering on their children from the nearby waterfront walkways and the park's shoreline kiddie beach area.

  • Patrick Smith's "A Land Remembered" is, arguably, a novel all Floridians should have read at some time in their lives.
    The book chronicles the lives of the MacIveys, a pioneering Florida family, just before the Civil War.
    Smith died earlier in the year, but his son, Rick, continues to lecture on the importance of the writings and life of his father.
