Letter to the Editor - Dear Homestead

Although I have spent a lot of time with you over the last couple of months, I can’t say that I know you well. Most of my time has been spent outside what they call an emergency influx shelter for unaccompanied migrant teens, right past the Air Force Reserve Base. But I have driven through your streets, and along your fields. I have seen workers in the fields. I have seen houses of the better off, and some more modest. And I have seen the signs that tell us, on the roads, that we are right along the way to visit the Everglades, and the road that leads all the way south to Key West.

Letter to the Editor - Thank you Dr. Tucci

The city of Homestead can be proud of a good many things: its friendly population, its institutions...Recently, I also found out that it is the proper place to bring your sick or injured pet. It has outstanding veterinarians but, particularly, I am thinking here of Dr. Teresa Tucci.

Moving Towards a Cleaner, Greener Future

When I lived in Ecuador, I grew up surrounded by vibrant life; beautiful exotic plants and animals that would make anyone fall in love with our planet. When I moved to Miami, I felt a similar appreciation and love for our unique ecosystems like the Everglades, and our stunning coastlines—areas that would make anyone want to commit to protecting our planet. But when I am exploring the Everglades with my children, or scuba diving along our barrier reef, I can’t help but worry that future generations will not be able to experience these natural wonders if we do not take action to flight climate change now.

Redland Community Council Prevails

Despite 138 objectors and a Community Council that favors developers instead of giving respect to neighbors, was the outcome of last Thursday's Redland Community Council 14's zoning meeting. Residents of the Biscayne -288 St --McMinn --172 Ave area, were hoping for a favorable zoning decision of the Redland Council, but for a losing disappointment and the 7 to 8 times this application has come to this council and the BCC (Board of County Commission) this is an injustice to the citizens of this community.

Op-Ed - Put Florida first and end the shutdown

As Americans, we have some basic, reasonable expectations. Among them: our food should be safe to eat, our businesses should be able to operate, our workers should be paid for their labor, and our government should function effectively.
