The naming of a new high school that will open in North Miami the fall has been making headlines. The city council wants to name the school after former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, who is a resident of the area. On the other hand, the county’s school naming committee voted to name it after former Miami Heat basketball star Alonzo Mourning.
The new school’s lengthy proposed name is the Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High Biscayne Bay Campus. That’s a mouthful.
The Miami New Times has pointed out the hilarity that could be the Fightin’ Janet Renos. Imagine what the mascot would look like.
My write-in candidate; Chad Ochocinco, a native to the Miami area. Then again you would have to worry about him changing his name again which is a problem when naming something after him.
No word on where Charles Oakley and Jeff Van Gundy stand on the matter.
Janet Reno High School’s Fightin’ Janet Renos Might Never Get to Fight [Miami New Times]
On a day that alters history as much as today does I thought I would suggest to everyone that maybe change is truly upon us and anything is possible.
The vote that could create a new baseball stadium for the Florida Marlins was initially planned for this Thursday. However it has been pushed back until next month due to the holidays and President Obama’s inauguration. The absence of many elected officials who are in D.C. for the presidential inauguration, had a hand in the voting delay. A series of votes by Miami and Miami-Dade commissioners that could lead to a new baseball stadium will now take place in February.
The proposed new ballpark will be located on the site of the now-demolished Orange Bowl near downtown. Where it will be a major piece of a public works package.
When Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria began making plans for a new ballpark, the target opening date was the 2005 season. Since their first game in 1993, the Marlins have played at Dolphin Stadium. The Marlins brass view a permanent home as a lifesaver. They say it will keep them in South Florida for at least the next 30 years. They have publicly said that they are handcuffed in their current lease agreement. They are contractually bound and stuck only pocketing limited concessions revenues. (more…)
At the moment the upcoming Buffalo vs. Miami NFL game this Sunday is listed as a Pick. To me this screams Miami.
