The Cloisters at the Spanish Monastery - Miami

From their site:
The Monastery of St. Bernard de Clairvaux was built in Sacramenia, in the Province of Segovia, Spain, during the period 1133-1144.

In 1925 William Randolph Hearst purchased the Cloisters to move it to his estate in California. The structures were dismantled stone by stone, packed in some 11,000 wooden crates, numbered for identification and shipped to the United States.

Soon after the shipment arrived, Hearst’s financial problems forced most of his collection to be sold at auction. The stones remained in a warehouse in Brooklyn, New York, for 26 years. One year after Hearst’s death in 1952, they were purchased by Messrs. W. Edgemon and R. Moss for use as a tourist attraction. It took 19 months to put the Monastery back together in Miami, where it stands today.

Jack Horkheimer: Star Hustler 1938-2010

I just found out that Jack Horkheimer  a fixture in PBS for many years, and one of our  local contributors to PBS has passed away.

Here’s a link to the last show he did:

It is a pity that you had to concede to the PC forces and change the title of your show to Star Gazer. I kind of liked Star Hustler better.

So long Jack. We’ll miss you!

Keep looking up!

10-foot-tall bronze statue of Julia Tuttle, unveiled last month at the southern end of Bayfront Park, on the 114th birthday of the city of Miami that she helped create. It took long enough and "it was about time that we had a statute to Julia Tuttle, being that people have talked about doing it since the time of her death in 1898" said Arva Parks, Miami Historian.
