What's New In The 305

Pakistani mangoes to table. Homestead’s tropical monsoon climate is perfect for growing foods you’d normally find in places like Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Just ask Ghee Indian Kitchen Chef (and farmer) Niven Patel. (New York Times, The New Tropic)  

Moonlight magic lives on. The man behind the play that inspired the Oscar-winning Moonlight is writing again. This time, he’s creating a TV series about South Florida inspired by his experiences growing up in Liberty City. 🙌  (Miami New Times)   

Not okay. Somebody decided to spray paint a swastika and other hateful graffiti on some palm trees along the MacArthur Causeway this week. When the Miami Herald called police almost a day later, the police said it was the first they’d heard about it. See something? Say something. (Miami Herald)  

#FakeNews. After Charlottesville, Miamians were looking for a way to do their part. So they seized on Wynwood’s Robert E. Lee Park. One problem: it doesn’t exist. (Miami New Times)

Extra precautions. All Florida prisons are on lockdown after receiving threats of possible uprisings. That means none of Florida’s 97,000 inmates can have visitors this weekend. (Miami Herald)

“Homer” ain’t goin’ nowhere. The infamous center-field sculpture that celebrates every Marlins home run, is staying put. There was word that new owner Derek Jeter might wanna get rid of it but the county (who owns the flashy flamingos) says it’s “not movable.” (Miami Herald)


On Jupiter and Saturn, it rains diamonds. Thanks to this advertiser for making it rain on your favorite newsletter.

YOU SAID IT

It feels like nearly everyone has an opinion about the Confederate monuments and what we should do with them. Here’s what Redditor “LetsDiscourse” had to say about our piece on Florida’s Confederate monuments:

Removing these monuments is not about giving in to people who are offended by them, the vast majority of people are not offended by them. Removing them is about taking symbols and power away from white supremacists, it’s about sending them a message that their bullshit is not welcome by our society, it’s about taking away their places of worship, if you will.

How do you feel when you walk by one of these monuments? Where do you think they belong today? Send us your thoughts at [email protected]. We may share them back out.
