Postcard From Spring Training

From the modern spring training facility that houses the Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals to the amazing amount of new construction in Jupiter, Fla., you'd never know that the area has a long history.

According to the city's history Web site, the Spanish explored the Jupiter Inlet in 1513 and evidence has been found near the historic Jupiter Lighthouse that suggests there was a British settlement here during the Revolutionary War.

I should check on that with one of Jupiter's most famous residents, actor Burt Reynolds. He might remember.
