Letter in support of West Matheson
The Matheson West park area is a well-preserved remainder of Dade County’s unique subtropical hardwood hammock.

This has the effect of denying access to those who may want to visit to experience the park’s natural beauty... Read More

The Kia K5 EX is brining sexy back for sedans
I’m going to start by telling you that I really like Kia’s K5 line. So rather than comparing it to another car, I’m going to tell you why the EX is my favorite of the bunch. Starting at about $29,000, the Kia K5 EX delivers a very healthy 180 horsepower with 195 pounds/feet of torque. That power comes from a 1.6-liter turbo charged engine that runs on four valves per cylinder. So you get great punch for your money on this top of the line mid-size sedan... Read More
