All About the Green

A much ballyhooed petition supporting a commercial airport in Homestead appears to be a sham

Some letter writers question the validity of the Verner Liipfert petition. For example, one signatory, the Coalition of Florida Farmworker Organizations, has no members. Contacting several other groups that signed the original petition is difficult. One, New Visions for South Dade, is described in an Equal Justice Coalition press release faxed to New Times as "a group dedicated to the empowerment of minority people in the region." Its phone number is not listed. Another group called RCH-Haitian Community Radio also is unlisted. When asked how to reach the groups, Homestead Mayor Shiver acknowledged that he does not know.
