    FPL stopping algae bloom safely

    Florida Power & Light Co. employees work hard to ensure the reliability of our electric system remains among the best in the nation. During hot, humid summer months, these efforts are especially important because of the higher seasonal demand for electricity across the state.

  • Shame on UM

    I, too, am discouraged by the University of Miami’s irresponsibility toward a loyal community by quietly selling a significant and critical rockland habitat for several endangered species. It’s utter fantasy to think these species can be moved.

  • Students fooled

    The rebranding of a technical school as a technical “college” as reported in the July 14 article Schools gain ‘college’ cachet, is a major disservice to students, potential employers and our state college system. This is a thinly veiled public relations campaign that only further confuses students and hiring managers, and waters down the strong image that our community’s true colleges have built.

  • James Garner RIP

    As one of 200,000 alumni of FIU and president of the FIU Alumni Association Board of Directors, I am writing to express my deepest gratitude to the Miami-Dade Commission.

  • Bring competition

    On behalf of all those who live within 10 minutes to 15 minutes from Miami International Airport, a heartfelt thank-you to the Miami-Dade County Commission for hopefully reforming the existing regulations that allow only 'sanctioned cab and limousine' companies to provide commercial transportation from MIA (Commissioners give initial OK to legalizing Lyft, UberX in Miami-Dade, July 16).

    Everglades restoration a must for our survival

    As Floridians like to say: “We live where you vacation,” but most people don’t know that one of the country’s favorite holiday destinations is under threat. Sea-level rise and climate change are already affecting Miami-Dade County. Fortunately, continued restoration efforts of the Florida Everglades will help impede these consequences.
