The campaign to bring medical marijuana to Florida will face what may be a massive roadblock on Thursday. Florida’s Supreme Court will hear arguments on the case brought by Attorney General Pam Bondi. She says the proposed language for the ballot gives too many people access to the drug.
While the case is about what the voters would see on the ballot University of Miami law professor Donald Jones says the court will have to consider the entire argument for medical marijuana.
Lovers in happy times often take intimate photos and videos of each other. But after an angry break-up, those images can become weapons.
It happened to Holly Jacobs, a Ph.D.-level researcher who lives in Florida. A month after her break-up, someone -- and she suspects her ex-boyfriend -- posted nude pictures and sex videos of her all over the Internet, sometimes on specialty "revenge porn" web sites.
Our holiday spirit showed last week, when we ran stories of name-your-price puppies at the shelter, the allure of Miami's old Jewish delis and speculations about the future of our local book industry. But here's what you liked best:
It's not unusual to find a Florida panther among the other "big cats" in a typical Florida zoo. But the Palm Beach Zoo's new arrival is one with a poignant history.
The 12-year-old Florida panther named Mirasol -- nicknamed "Mira" -- is in quarantine at the Palm Beach Zoo and will be seen by visitors starting next month.
Mira had lived virtually her entire life at the South Florida Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Homestead. But when its founder was diagnosed with a terminal illness, he contacted state wildlife officials to help him find homes for his animals.
We’re excited to announce that WLRN's television production “Hialeah Speedway: No Guts, No Glory!” has been honored with a Suncoast EMMY Award for best documentary.
The Suncoast Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the winners this weekend at the Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa in Hollywood, Florida. Hialeah Speedway was awarded best documentary under the category of Nostalgia Programs.
On behalf of WLRN, we want to congratulate producer Debra Hall Greene for her excellent work.
This pre-holiday week, from Nov. 18-22, we brought you a bit of nostalgia (see our "Delis Of Yore" post below), some future planning (that's two proposals for Miami-Dade structures) and a little current analysis in the form of beauty-pageant criticism.
Miami commissioners voted Thursday to allow retail giant Walmart to build a new store in the city’s Midtown district.
The two-year battle came to a close after four hours of debate and testimony. Commissioners decided Walmart complied with zoning rules, and unanimously granted the retailer a special Class II permit. This will allow a 203,000-square-foot building at the sound end of Midtown, including three floors and parking space for nearly 600 cars.
Miami developer Jeff Berkowitz is putting together a proposal to build a sky-scraping observation tower in downtown Miami. The SkyRise Miami tower would stand 1,000 feet tall at the Bayside Marketplace.
