New Ramp To Make Old Seven Mile Bridge More Accessible

Originally posted on CBS Miami:

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — The historic Seven Mile bridge will soon be wheelchair accessible.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has authorized a $1.16 million plan to improve access to the Old Seven Mile Bridge in Marathon Key with a ramp that will run along an existing stairwell beneath the new bridge.

The project is in addition to an agreement reached at the end of last year for a $77.5 million upgrade to a 2.2-mile portion of the old bridge that connects to Pigeon Key. Pigeon Key was once the headquarters for the construction of Henry Flagler’s railroad. The railroad helped turn south Florida into a vacation destination and trade route in the beginning of the 20th century.

Song Recommendation: “Barlights” by fun.

Originally posted on Where Words Fail, Music Begins:

The majority of the population has heard – or at least heard of – Fun by this point in time, with their singles “We Are Young” and “Some Nights” both reaching the top 10 on the Billboard charts.

What far fewer people are familiar with is their debut album, “Aim and Ignite.”  While their most recent release, “Some Nights,” is far more traditional – although still quite impressive, in my personal opinion – their first album has a much more interesting, progressive sound, characterized by a variety of different instruments.

My personal favorite off of the album, and one of my favorite songs overall, is “Barlights.”  It’s one of those rare songs for me that’s just so uplifting and catchy that it can pull me out of a bad mood easily.

At its base, I see it as a sort of realization of being really happy with how your life…
