🐟 Addressing the crisis in Biscayne Bay

Oolite Arts is inviting local filmmakers to tell Miami to keep its masks up.

💧What Miami is talking about

There’s always a Florida connection: South Florida law enforcement and the FBI have recovered a $3 million shipment of ventilators that was stolen in Miami-Dade County earlier this month.

The University of Miami has shared its plans to permit 13,000 fans to attend next month’s 2020 football season opener. Although college football fans are no doubt overjoyed at the news and safety measures being put into place, the kicker — get it? — is that tailgating won’t be allowed.

Have you been pulling a Ben Wyatt and using quarantine to make short films? Oolite Arts is inviting local filmmakers and artists to pitch a 30 to 60-second public service announcement on the importance of wearing masks to curb the COVID-19 curve. The Masks Up Miami initiative will award five entrants $2,500 each to bring their visions to life; applications are open now through Tuesday, September 8.

If you’re wondering why many people are unsettled by Laura Loomer’s victory last week in the Republican primary for Florida’s 21st Congressional District, Miami New Times has shared a good primer on her history. Spoiler alert: it’s not exactly a lighthearted read.
