On Wednesday night, District 8 Miami-Dade County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava called residents of The Falls area together to discuss the possibility of becoming its own municipality within the county. Or, more specifically, to discuss creating a survey that will ask residents whether it's something they would want.

In 1955, a 21-year-old Swiss woman, Margrith Lübke, traveled to North America to satisfy a childhood fantasy of living and working in New York City. She loved the glamor and enjoyed every moment. After a few months in the Big Apple, however, a fateful turn of events led her to Nassau. Fantasy became a new life in the tropics.
