The recent cleanup by the Southwest Florida Water Management District not only cleaned the Chassahowitzka Springs, it uncovered history, some of it ancient.

Found while cleaning the springs was a cornucopia of articles - from old booze and cola bottles, to china used by the Spanish, to anchors from the 1700's and 1800's, to bone implements and at lease one artifact from 10,000 years ago.

Whooping cranes fly over Tallahassee

The annual migration of whooping cranes has made it to Tallahassee, and five St. Marks Whooping crane chicks will see their new winter home for the first time.

That according to the Operation Migration web site.

Operation Migration ultralight pilots were to fly the 8 miles to the Jefferson County pen site to retrieve the five Whooping crane chicks. From there, they'll head south-southeast and fly over the crowd, which has been patiently waiting for this day, and the chicks to arrive at their new winter home.
