Curtis Holland, son of Edwin and Gail Holland and grandson of Dr. Gloria Blatch-McPhee, knows that he can dance based on his exemplary performance at the James L. Knight Center last month. Curtis was selected in the top 20 of contestants and became one of the alternates to perform with the top 10 in the “So you think you can dance” traveling show. Congratulations, Curtis.

The historic Lemon City should be officially designated as a historic site by the City of Miami Preservation and Historic Board based on factual and historical information. Then, all of the surrounding area such as Nazarene, Bowles Town, Buena Vista, Little River and Little Haiti should be adopted as visiting sites from one point to another. There may be additional sites that are nameless in the Lemon City boundaries. Calling all pioneers of Lemon City, we need your interesting stories.
