A murder, a automobile crash on Scenic Highway, and the doings of the Board of Trade were among the topics that made the front page of The Highlander 100 years ago this week.
Within the pages of the paper was a broadside explanation of the new rules being proposed to govern the sales of citrus. Those rules eventually led to state laws that required fruit to meet a number of standards. The evolving industry eventually shifted from selling fresh fruit to canned, then to concentrate, before turning to today's popular "single strength, not-from-concentrate" as produced by Florida's Natural locally.
