Spring's new name honors long-ago love

Published November 24, 2006
Chris Longo, a Plant High School senior, sought the council's approval to complete the project necessary to reach the highest Scout level: Eagle Scout. Longo asked to rename the spring near the Hillsborough River behind Stetson Law School on Florida Avenue.

The spring, noted by local historians as Tampa's first water source, was named after a 19th century judge who preferred to drink out of a flask.
