I need help with my Community?

I’ve been trying to research on Google, but I can’t seem to find the answer to one question. If you can answer it for me, I’d be grateful.

Question: When was Palm Harbor established and by whom? The more detail the better, because I like learning about my community.

Tijuana answers:

Palm Harbor was originally called Sutherland, a shortening of Southern Land and Development Company, the group that originally platted the community as Sutherland, Hillsborough County in 1888. The name was changed to Palm Harbor in 1925. Palm Harbor was originally settled by J.C. Craver. According to Craver’s diary, still in the family, he came here in the winter of 1877 upon the advice of his physician. A post office commission under the name of Bay St. Joseph was granted in 1878, this being the earliest written record of the community. The name Bay St. Joseph was used only a short time before Yellow Bluff replaced it. But that name proved relatively short-lived, as a few years later its negative connotation with the yellow fever epidemic gave way to its present name. Palm Harbor was originally called Sutherland after a post office was granted in 1888, the same year the railroad came through. Sutherland boasted two beautiful hotels, the larger one becoming Southern College in 1902. It sat high on the bluff overlooking Sutherland Bayou and the Gulf of Mexico. Sutherland was thought to be named after Duke of Sutherland, who visited these parts after landing at Tarpon Springs in 1887. Local pioneers dismiss this coincidence, pointing out that the name Sutherland is a shortening of Southern Land and Development Company, the group which originally platted the community in 1888. Areas pioneers included the Whitehursts, the Hollands, the Tinneys, the Suttons, the Thompsons, the Rivieres, the Bensons, the Roberts, the Aldermans and the Wilsons. Palm Harbor also has a unique “hilly” geography which is uncommon in the relatively flat Florida.

Laura asks…

Anyone knowledgable in silent film era?

To which significant social and cultural pressures did the appearance of moving pictures (beginning of silent film era) respond?

I would really appreciate some help just to at least get started on researching.
Thanks in advance!

Tijuana answers:

Two of the best known films of the early era are the coverage of Poncho Villa in Mexico where battles were supposedly timed for daylight for the cameras (“Hollywood war”) and the long epic “Birth of a Nation” that recorded and/or stimulated the rise of the Klu Klux Klan. The period was the time of racial violence and, among other things going on, Woodrow Wilson was invading and making the banana republics into dictatorships and re-segregating the federal government (post office and military) while the southern aristocracy suppressed voting rights and promoted the idea of the noble battle for states rights as the cause of the war, when they used federal law to suppress northern states rights to pass laws that protected runaway slaves.

Ruth asks…

New Mexico drivers license laws?

In New Mexico if you’re over 18, and haven’t attended a drivers education class, what are the laws to obtain a new license? I’ve looked on google but haven’t had much success. Any knowledge on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Tijuana answers:

I found this at the New Mexico DMV site below:


The New Mexico MVD issues a secure driver license to help protect New Mexicans from identity theft. Persons applying for a first-time driver license, an out-of-state driver license, a license renewal or a license replacement are issued a temporary license while their regular license is being processed and mailed.

If you have an out-of state license or a New Mexico ID card, it will be hole-punched, and may be used in conjunction with the temporary license, for up to 45 days from the date of issue. The temporary license and the hole-punched license are only valid for identification purposes when presented together.

You must go into a MVD Field Office to get your New Mexico driver license. Staff at any Field Office can issue your temporary driver license.

New Drivers – Ages 18 to 24

If you are applying for your first New Mexico driver license and are aged 18 to 24, you must complete the None for the Road self-study DWI awareness class. The University of New Mexico Continuing Education Center administers the None for the Road class.
