Nadege Green loves only-in-Miami stories. After five years as a Miami Herald reporter, she is convinced Miami is the best news town ever. Really, you can’t make up some of the stuff that happens here.

Nadege has covered local city governments and as a sub-beat, Miami’s Haitian community.

She is a graduate of Barry University where she majored in English with the hope of someday becoming the next great novelist — she’s still working on that dream.

Chelsea Tyrell graduated from Stoneman Douglas High in 2016. When she heard about the shooting at her alma mater she drove from the University of North Florida with her golden retriever.

"I thought I'd bring along my 6-year-old golden retriever who's certified as a therapy dog to just come out here if anyone needs any comfort," she said.

After I reported a story about the popularity of Manischewitz wine in Caribbean communities during the holidays, many of our readers and listeners responded back-- mostly people who came from non-Jewish households that embraced the kosher wine.

Gender equality is one of the issues at the forefront of the national conversation right now, and that’s what an art show at Brickell City Centre is exploring as part of Miami Art Week.
