COMMEMORATIVE EDITION CELEBRATING CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS HIGH SCHOOL 60TH ANNIVERSARY
 
Christopher Columbus High School has always fostered three distinct traditions: the pursuit of academic excellence, the heritage of Catholic education, and the unique spirit and mission of the Marist Brothers.

Columbus opened in 1958 with just two and a half buildings and an enrollment of approximately 150 students. The Marist Brothers assumed the direction of the school in 1959, under the leadership of Principal Br. Benedict.

Throughout the years the school expanded, adding new buildings, facilities and programs. Known for excellence in every field, and with an enrollment of 1,700 students and over 14,750 alumni, today Christopher Columbus High School is a model for Catholic schools all over the country.

Community Newspapers is committed to creating a publication that honors Christopher Columbus High School and serves as a lasting keepsake for its students, faculty, future students, alumni, community partners worldwide.

ZOO MIAMI INSTALLS TRACKING TOWER TO EXPAND GLOBAL WILDLIFE RESEARCH
 
Zoo Miami is helping expand a global wildlife research network to South Florida by installing a Motus Wildlife Tracking System. A Motus (which means “movement” in Latin) station allows tracking of the movement and behavior of birds, bats and large insects through small digitally encoded radio transmitters attached by wildlife researchers. It is particularly useful for understanding bird migrations. There are over 150 different research stations that have deployed Motus tracking tags to wildlife in North America.
