A new pilot program that could give Key Biscayne unprecedented control over e-bikes and electric scooters on a major tourist thoroughfare won approval from the Miami-Dade County Commission Tuesday.  

A recent count of flamingos in Florida was launched to gather evidence in a push to have the iconic bird declared native to Florida.
