Emory Jones just needs to look at his left arm for a reminder of what happened at Avon Park Youth Academy. There is a faint scar in the shape of a snake above his elbow from when an officer beat him.

Our news partners at the Miami Herald are celebrating a huge win. The news outlet won two Pulitzer Prizes this week.

One was for Explanatory Reporting for its coverage of the Panama Papers. The other winner was Jim Morin, who won for Editorial Cartooning. This is Jim's second Pulitzer Prize. His first was in 1996. 

For a centenarian, the Pulitzer Prize appears to be as spry as ever.

Now in its 101st year, the prestigious prize recognized writers, artists and musicians of nearly every bent — from breaking news and cartooning, to fiction and drama. At a New York City ceremony Monday, Pulitzer Prize Administrator Mike Pride announced the 21 winners of the 2017 award.

Carrie Fisher passed away this week and she's obviously going to be remembered for her role as Princess Leia. But she has been in a lot of movies.

Jim Wyss, the Miami Herald’s Andean bureau chief who traveled to Venezuela to cover a massive protest rally in Caracas, was detained by Venezuelan immigration authorities Wednesday evening.

Wyss arrived in the Venezuelan capital very early Tuesday and entered the country with a journalist visa valid through October. However, he emailed the newspaper at 5:21 p.m. Wednesday, saying: “Am being detained … by immigration.”

  When photographer Tim Chapman retired from The Miami Herald in 2012, he had an archive dating back 40 years. Chapman documented some of the most significant moments in South Florida history. Now, he's found a home for that archive, at the HistoryMiami museum. That donation — and Chapman's career — is celebrated in a show called Newsman now on display at the museum.

  Chapman said he never changed over his 40-year career, even as photographic technology and the newspaper business changed dramatically.

Faith High Barnebey really had two lives, it seemed. She had her first life with her first husband who was the mayor of Miami and then an almost entirely different second life.

Five years ago today Haiti – the western hemisphere’s poorest country – was devastated by an earthquake that killed some 300,000 people. Haitian officials, the U.S. and other donor countries promised to “build back Haiti better.” But so far the question is whether they’ve been able to build back Haiti… much at all.

Stacey McKinley has trained some of boxing’s top fighters, from Ray Mercer to Mike Tyson.

But it is a 17-year-old Broward high school girl — his first time training a female — that has him pumped up and brought him back to the amateur ring. Chasity Martin is ranked the No. 1 youth female boxer in Florida, and No. 3 in the country. She’s vying for a spot on the 2016 U.S. Olympics boxing team.

TALLAHASSEE -- A high-profile healthcare bill moving through the Florida House could strip the Miami-Dade County Commission of its authority to make the final decision on labor union contracts at the county’s public hospital system.

The bill originally sought to create new rules for trauma centers, allow skilled nurses to practice independent of physicians, and pave the way for hospitals to use virtual healthcare services.
