The entire Metromover system will be shut down this Saturday and Sunday. Miami-Dade Transit will provide free shuttles to replace the Metromover routes while upgrades and routine maintenance will force the closure.
Shuttle busses will run between Metromover stops every 10 to 15 minutes and, for the most part, follow the path of the Metromover tracks. Below is a map showing the exact stop locations.
Starting today, Miami is the home of yet another major hemispheric gathering. The International Economic Forum of the Americas has moved one of its biggest events here - from a South Florida neighbor.
The International Economic Forum of the Americas, or IEFA, has become a key platform for issues affecting the Western Hemisphere. The Montreal-based group used to hold its annual World Strategic Forum in Palm Beach County. But it aims to raise its profile now by taking advantage of Miami-Dade’s more Latin American atmosphere.
In a crowd of concertgoers hidden in the shadows of a dimly lit venue, one man can’t help but stand out. Equipped with a pen and sketchbook, Brian Butler regularly claims a post near the many stages he comes across, ready to capture the diverse environments around him.
Butler, originally a Massachusetts native and a Massachusetts College of Art and Design graduate, moved down to Miami about five years ago. He cites having seen rock legend Iggy Pop perform on the beach during Art Basel as part of the motivation for this move.

From the opening pages of poet Richard Blanco’s refreshing memoir, “The Prince of Los Cocuyos: A Miami Childhood,” it’s clear that you’re not wandering Calle Ocho in one of those nostalgic, Little Havana paradises that so many Cuban-American chronicles try to recreate.
Instead, you’re wandering a Winn Dixie in Westchester.
This past Saturday, close to 4,000 people flocked to Tobacco Road, the bar and restaurant with the oldest liquor license in Miami. The venue hosted its "Last Call" party, closing its doors after 102 years.
A line formed outside of the front door. You had to get your ID past Eugene Remy, bouncer there for the last 22 years, who calls this place his "house."
Standing in line the view was a glowing neon sign above the entrance that read, "Tobacco Road Liquor Bar 'Til 5 A.M."
This past summer I wrote an article about Panama’s ultra-corrupt judicial system. It looked at the case of a dead man whose will had left tens of millions of dollars to poor children – and how the Panamanian Supreme Court made the highly suspicious decision to nullify that will and hand the money instead to rich adults.
Roman Catholic Mass was at one time universally celebrated in Latin, the ancient Roman language.
After the second Vatican Council in the 1960s, Mass was allowed to be celebrated in the language of the people, meaning Mass in Peru was celebrated in Spanish and Mass in the United States was celebrated in English -- you get the picture.
Latin is now sometimes referred to as “the dead language,” but it is not dead in Miami.
The James L. Knight foundation is opening applications in Miami for its first-ever Knight Cities Challenge, which looks to make cities better and more successful.
