The Final Days Of One Herald Plaza In Pictures

Last week, the Miami Herald shuttered its building on the bay.

Located at One Herald Plaza, the beige box on the water is affectionately known as 1HP. Conference room meetings were interrupted by someone spotting dolphins. Water spouts could be seen forming from the cafeteria windows. Depending on the person, the building was either a testament to architecture done without aesthetics in mind, or an ideal place to do journalism.

05/20/13 - Monday’s Topical Currents is with contributor Dan Ricker, publisher of the weekly Watchdog Report. Ricker celebrates the 14th anniversary of his independent internet news publication. We’ll touch on many issues, including Miami-Dade’s dither over water and sewer infrastructure upgrades, as well as the Miami Dolphin’s loss of millions in the stadium upgrade debacle. And though proceeds would benefit charity, would you pay to see the middle-aged Mayors of Hialeah and Miami Lakes face-off in a boxing match? That’s Topical Currents at 1pm on WLRN-HD1 rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live program.

We're a little over two weeks away from the scheduled Miami-Dade County referendum on proposed upgrades to the Miami Dolphins' Sun Life Stadium.

State lawmakers still need to approve a local hotel tax increase and a Dolphins subsidy that would help pay for the renovations. If that happens, the public will have a chance to officially vote on the upgrades on May 14th. 

Until then, we figured we'd give our audience a different way to express their feelings on the issue:

Love or Hate Miami? Tell Us In Verse

In honor of National Poetry Month, WLRN - Miami Herald News is teaming up with the O, Miami poetry festival to bring you That's So Miami--a project documenting your thoughts about Miami, in verse.    

We want to see your Miami, not “CSI: Miami” or “Miami Vice” or “Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach.” The only rule is that your poem has to begin or end with the phrase, “That’s so Miami.”

FULL MOON FISH HOUSE

by Susan Brown

I‘ve spent more of my life in water than on land.   Not surprising for a third generation fisherman, I ‘spose.  Probably explains why I jumped at the chance to live in the old fish house.  That, and the fact we got history.

Guerra de la Paz

If you’ve ever donated an old coat or a dress, or even pair of socks, to a thrift store, there’s a chance it ended up in the Saatchi Collection in London. That’s because the Miami-based duo, Guerra de la Paz, makes thrift store throwaways into art.

Alicia Zuckerman went with them to their “art supply store,” as they call it, so they could show her how come up with their creations.
