Miami’s Top 5: What you should know Wednesday


1. Fresh from an honor at the White House, the Miami Heat remains in Washington to take on the Wizards at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The game can be seen on SUN.

2. Artists can apply to have their work on display at the visitor's center at Everglades National Park. The park announced that artists — especially local, amateur artists — can submit their applications by March 31. The artwork can include a variety of media that focus on the natural and cultural beauty of the Everglades. The park said it's also interested in highlighting artwork done by students.

3. Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam on Wednesday will propose “a complete rewrite of Florida’s charity laws,” aiming to increase state oversight and transparency in direct response to investigative reports published last year. Putnam, whose duties include protecting Florida’s consumers, said the changes will help Floridians make more informed choices about the charities they patronize.

4. Club Madonna has gone to federal court to seek an injunction against Miami Beach for shutting it down after revelations of a 13-year-old girl nude dancer performing at the strip joint.

5. Get ready for the cold snap. After a rainy day, temperatures are expected to plunger into the 40s Wednesday night, with the coldest temperatures forecast for Thursday and Friday.
