Letter: The destruction of South Miami’s small town character

The first commission meeting of the new year included yet another re-plat approval of a once beautiful 2.7-acre property fronting Miller Road. The property was dissected into nine lots with some serious issues. Our Commission got out their well worn and much used rubber stamps to give their “ministerial” approval. Our elected officials are effectively increasing density in our residential areas without changing the zoning, by allowing developers to re-plat every big beautiful lot that will accommodate as many huge homes that can be packed in with the current zoning.

Photo gallery: Hans Huseby remembered by family and friends

In front of the South Miami FootWorks store he owned for 40 years, Hans Huseby was remembered Wednesday night by his family and more than 1,000 friends from the South Florida running community. Huseby was 64 when he died Saturday in his sleep. His wife Laurie, left, recalled a note Hans left for her last week on the kitchen counter: “Thanks for being my wife,” wrote Huseby, who was eulogized for his kindness and generosity. “I will very much miss working the races with you,” son JP said, addressing the gathering.
