Maybe this should be in the sports world as I consider it a victory for a sports hero, but this is great. Suck on that one Janet Reno! :laugh:


Miami school named for Mourning over Reno

Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) - A new North Miami high school will be named after former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, rather than the first female U.S. Attorney General, Janet Reno.

A naming committee had earlier settled on the Alonzo and Tracy Mourning Senior High School Biscayne Bay Campus.

The Miami-Dade School Board on Wednesday gave it the final OK.

Mourning was a star for the Miami Heat, but it was the work he and his wife have done in local schools, including mentoring, that spurred the nomination.

Reno was a longtime Miami-Dade state attorney before serving as the country's attorney general from 1993 to 2001.

Many in South Florida's large Cuban-American population disagree with her order to return 6-year-old Elian Gonzalez to his father in Cuba in 2000 despite protests by his family in Miami.
