We’re stoked to announce we’re hiring a storytelling producer. Do you love helping Miamians connect with their city? Do you love using creative storytelling to do just that? We want to hear from you. Apply here and send any questions to Anika Anand at [email protected]… which leads us to our next announcements.

Ariel Zirulnick, previously our executive editor, is now leading The New Tropic as its director. And we want to introduce you to Anika, who cofounded our sister publication in Seattle and is the new storytelling director for WhereBy.Us, the parent company that publishes us.

Ever needed to wear a cup to work? This guy has. He’s a performer with the House of Horror Haunted Carnival and loves to scare the bejesus out of guests every year. So much in fact, that he bought a protective cup to wear after his terrified guests took out their fear on his, er, little demon. (The Miami Herald)

Get that mustard sauce ready. Stone crab season, one of South Florida’s most popular food occasions of the year, kicked off last weekend. Joe’s Stone Crab opened back up Friday night, but there’s still a big question about how Irma will affect this year’s batch. (Miami New Times)

No cranes in site. Developers are excited about all the  possibilities in Little Havana, which is right on the edge of neighborhoods like Brickell that many young people can no longer afford, but they say super strict zoning laws are preventing them from putting up anything new – including anything affordable. (The Real Deal)

Funny money. Rich Miamians receive 75 percent more housing assistance than the poor, according to a new study. Why? Because of a little not-at-all-complicated-sounding policy called the “the mortgage-interest tax deduction.” The Atlantic once called this policy “a symbol of everything that’s wrong with the American tax code.” If you want a deep dive into why, check out this story. (Miami New Times)

Should developers pay for public art? City of Miami wants to make developers submit their public art plans to the city for approval or pay a development fee. But developers and property owners aren’t having it. Wynwood’s Business Improvement District (BID) says that if those rules existed 10 years ago, the neighborhood wouldn’t even exist. (The Real Deal)

#Metrofail. These lines from the Miami Herald say all you need to know about Miami’s love/hate relationship with public transit: “Miami-Dade County promotes Metrorail with the slogan ‘Drive Less. Live More.’ But riders who need the train say they die a little every day because of the wasted time.” (The Miami Herald)
