Historian, Test Thyself

In 1929, after three years of economic hardship and hurricanes, Florida’s citrus industry took a hit from what pest? Who was the first explorer to reach Florida? Walt Disney World opened in what year? If you have an interest in the history of the Sunshine State -- and it really is some pretty juicy stuff -- head to the Historical Museum of Southern Florida at 2:00 p.m. for the third annual South Florida History Challenge, hosted by ubiquitous Miami Dade College professor Paul George. It’s free. Call 305 375 1621. (Answers: Mediterranean fruit fly, Juan Ponce de León [in 1513], and 1971)
Sat., Jan. 28, 2 p.m.
