LeBron is gone but we will always have Julia Tuttle.

Heat fans, this may not comfort you the first time LeBron James walks into the AmericanAirlines Arena in Cavalier wine and gold. It will certainly not help next June when, for the first time in five years, the Miami Heat will very likely be watching the NBA Finals from home.

As part of our project What’s the Story? — where we answer your questions about South Florida — why not play some trivia?

Thirteen teams competed during three rounds of questions about South Florida. The winning team received a $75 bar tab. But don't feel bad for the losing team -- they took home freeze-dried ice cream for being so spacey they got few questions right.

This program follows a wood duck family as a male and female create a bond, migrate together across thousands of miles, nurture and protect a brood of chicks, then come full circle as they head to their wintering grounds.
