County wants help with time capsule

-A A +A

Activity tied to 500th anniversary of discovery of Florida

By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

On April 2, 1513, three ships that had sailed out of Hispanola in March sighted a verdant landscape that their leader Juan Ponce de Leon named La Florida.
While the name honored the lushness of this state, it also harked to his Catholic faith which was celebrating Easter, known as Pascua Florida — the Festival of Flowers.
In the 500 years since de Leon and his sailors landed on the Atlantic side of Florida things have changed.
While he never reached Levy County, the state would like residents to share in next year's 500th anniversary of the discovery of Florida by putting together a time capsule.
Levy County Library Director Lisa Brasher unveiled at Tuesday's Levy County Commission meeting a large stainless steel time capsule, one of 67 that the state is sending out to the counties asking the communities to decide what to put in them, where to place them and a future date to open them.
Brasher asked the commissioners what they wanted to do and they had several observations and comments.
