The Circle of Brotherhood’s social media biography reads “Black Men Solving Their Own Community Problems,” a slogan that seems appropriate after the City of Miami failed to make good on a promised $1 million in federal funds for the black-led nonprofit. In October 2021, Mayor Francis Suarez held a press conference and presented an oversized check for $1 million to the Circle of Brotherhood for its unwavering commitment to the Black community. The nonprofit was formed in 2013 to address issues related to increased violence in Miami’s fifth district. Since its formation, the Circle of Brotherhoo ..read more

A fall start is predicted for Tri-Rail trains to roll into Miami Central Station. David Dech, executive director of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA), made the projection last week during a presentation to the Citizens’ Independent Transportation Trust (CITT) board. The long-awaited $70 million tax-funded project, which was to be completed in 2017, faced multiple hurdles. In May 2022, then SFRTA executive director Steven Abrams told the CITT board he expected to revenue service to begin Nov. 1, 2022. It didn’t. Trains don’t jump hurdles well.

Miami Today

Ultra-high pollution in Parkview Island Canal, “a canal within a canal, within a bay,” is associated with freshwater that floats on the surface, entering during storms through the area’s stormwater system and containing animal and human feces, a University of Miami study has found. Enterococci – the bacteria found in the samples carrying concentrations of human and animal fecal waste – was said to come from a combination of “a whole ecosystem of animals,” human waste, and leaking garbage bins. Residents along the Parkview Island Canal, however, pushed back during the report’s unveiling and com ..read more

Clive Chang acquired his love for music at an early age, after he immigrated to Canada from Hong Kong at age 5, learning from a Russian piano instructor who did not know much English. “That’s the beauty of art,” he said, because there was an unspoken connect that needed no languages.

Magnet pull of South Florida on US residents is just a myth
Miami Today
by Michael Lewis
2d ago
Despite a widely professed belief that people from big cities across the nation are caught in a magnet pull to South Florida, it just ain’t so. Just the opposite. New census statistics last week revealed we are losing residents to other metropolitan areas of this nation far faster than we are gaining them. If it weren’t for a constant stream of new residents flowing from other nations around the globe, we would be a donor region, sending out far more people in a mass migration than we are getting back. A Miami Today analysis of the new census data on migration among the nation’s 384 Metropolit ..read more
