For more than four decades, the 20-foot, 7,000-pound killer whale named Lolita has never failed to delight the crowds at Miami Seaquarium, the marine park on Virginia Key. But activists have long said the killer whale should be retired or even returned to her real family in the Pacific Ocean.

The Ainsley Building, Miami's first office building under glass
Miami's landmark Ainsley Building at 14 NE First Avenue was super modern looking when new in the 1950s. Glass walled office buildings are common now, but the wrap-around sun shades on the south side of the Ainsley Building keep it from looking like just another glass box. In the 1950s Miami Herald photographer Bob East designed a radio-controlled unit that enabled photographers to light up Flagler Street during the annual Orange Bowl parade. East attached Ascor strobe lights to the eighth floor of the Ainsley Building.

Two-by-four replaced tire jack in 1986 Miami Grand Prix
Eamon Byrne was catapulted from anonymity to heroism in a flash of panic along pit row during qualifying for the 1986 Lowenbrau Grand Prix of Miami. He used as six-foot board as a leverage bar to single-handedly lift the rear of Pete Halsmer's Mustang Probe when the air jack assigned to the job blew out. Race fans stood from their bleacher seats to applaud Byrne. In a sport of quarter-million-dollar machines and microseconds and increasing science, a stray hunk of wood and a 29-year-old gent from near Birmingham, England, had done the job.
