PINECREST BOY SCOUTS PADDLE THE BOUNDARY WATERS
 
When my son joined the Cub Scouts in the first grade, I never would have imagined that 10 years later I would be trudging up a wet and rocky canoe trail in Northern Minnesota with a 70-pound pack on my back, dodging tree branches and aggressive mosquitos. Earlier this summer, 18 Scouts and parents from Pinecrest’s Boy Scout Troop 457 made the 2,000-mile trip from Miami to the Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base in Ely, Minn... Read More »

RAIL WAS PROMISED. RAIL SHOULD BE DELIVERED.
 

Last month’s Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) meeting was, at best, disappointing. The TPO, made-up of Miami-Dade County Commissioners plus local elected officials, convened on July 19 to review and vote on a locally preferred mode of transit for the South Dade Corridor. However, after more than four hours of testimony and debating rail vs. buses, the TPO...... Read More »

GET INVOLVED IN HORTICULTURE… GET INVOLVED IN THE GARDENS

POSITIVE PEOPLE IN PINECREST – KELLY CULHANE
 

Miami Palmetto High School incoming senior Kelly Culhane has earned her Girl Scout Gold Award – the equivalent to the Eagle Scout rank in Boy Scouting. Her project impressed the Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida enough that they named her as one of three nominees for the National Young Women of Distinction Award. The award winners will be announced this summer. Culhane’s project is called Hearing Loss in Teens: An Alarming Trend. “One in five teens in the U.S. will have Noise Induced Hearing Loss, or NIHL, by the age of 19,” she says. “It’s progressive, painless and permanent – but also entirely preventable.” She’s spent the past three years working to raise awareness about the problem. She’s been working... Read More »

POSITIVE PEOPLE IN PINECREST – NATALIA FERNANDEZ
 
Incoming Palmetto High School senior Natalia Fernandez is spending six weeks at New York University at an all girl’s STEM program doing DNA research. “I applied and was one of 40 girls chosen,” she says. “I love biology and chemistry; the program allows me to explore both.” She’s happy to have the opportunity to conduct research in a professional college setting with a well-known expert in nanotechnology. She’s already taken Advanced Placement biology and chemistry. In college she hopes to major in biochemistry on a pre-med track, so she can eventually pursue pediatric neurology.  Why does she want to study children’s brains? “In seventh grade, I had to go to the hospital for six days,” she says. “I lost my eyesight and hearing temporarily... Read More »
