United Way Study of “Working Poor”
According to a study released by The United Way, 30% of households in Florida are barely surviving – living paycheck to paycheck. The study looks closely at the working poor, who are those between the poverty line and middle class and are unable to save for the future; any emergency can cause them to fall into poverty. Do we need to redefine the definition of the middle class as we know it?

Rebirth of Miami Marine Stadium
This week, a two-year agreement was announced, bringing the Miami International Boat Show to the iconic Miami Marine Stadium which has been closed for over 20 years due to damage from Hurricane Andrew. The non-profit Friends of Miami Marine Stadium, which was formed in the hopes of preserving the historic venue, hopes this agreement will help fund the $30 million restoration project. But in the long term, will it be financially self-sustaining?
