Miami’s Top 5: What you should know Tuesday


1. A deaf bicyclist on a 175-day journey to raise awareness about cochlear implants won’t be riding into Marlins Ballpark on Tuesday as planned. Jacob Landis was injured in a hit-and-run, but the 24-year-old will still attend the finale party. Landis, who suffered a concussion over the weekend, was on schedule to complete the 11,000-mile-jounrey to bike to every Major League ballpark.

2. Miami-based Burger King is launching a lower-cal fry Tuesday. The crinkle-cut “Satisfries” have about 20 fewer calories than regular fries.

3. The future of taxi regulations will be up for discussion Tuesday at Miami-Dade County Hall as commissioners consider rewriting the rules for town-car service. Cab drivers and taxi drivers don’t see eye to eye on the issue.

4. Despite a miserable start to its football season, Florida International University won’t be making any changes at the top, the president says. Mark Rosenberg said the jobs of FIU coach Ron Turner and athletic director Pete Garcia will not be fired in light of an 0-4 record.

5. More rain is expected Tuesday in South Florida, with a 50 to 60 percent chance of precipitation and temperature and humidity around 90. But there is some good news: The weekend is looking drier so far.
