Lots of good stuff in this morning's news. Here's some of it.
A- Herald: What's going to happen to the Bacardi building?
Later this year, Bacardi USA will move out of the striking, mural-bedecked buildings -- monuments, really -- it has occupied on Biscayne Boulevard since the distiller's departure from Cuba, lock, stock and rum barrel, after the 1959 Revolution.B- Herald: Will JT retire as a Dolphin?
With construction well under way on its new Coral Gables headquarters -- inside the shell of a bland, neo-Mediterranean developer's special -- a suddenly pressing question is being aired in preservation and architectural circles:
What will become of the celebrated buildings once Bacardi goes?
[Jason] Taylor could, in fact, return to the Dolphins one year after being traded, if that is what he really wanted.C- Herald: The Raven nears 100K.
No team except the Dolphins can fulfill Taylor's desire to remain close to his family.
The Dolphins, believe it or not, also offer Taylor his best opportunity for ending his stellar career with a rally rather than a disappointing collapse.
If Taylor decides he would like to finish with the Dolphins, he would have to commit to their offseason program -- the one he so famously missed last year, the one that so famously helped Miami win the AFC East division in a stunning surprise.
On Jan. 1, 1975, he vowed to run eight miles every day for a year. Then two. And then, as time passed he found himself racing Irene and her 84 mph winds, bouts of heat with three-digit temperatures, and stomach-curdling food poisoning.D- Herald: Morin.
He's run from Walkman to iPod, through seven presidents. From Miami Beach being filled with white-haired folk waiting to die to celebrities looking for a place to live, Raven has never missed a day.
Slower but still smiling, Raven continues a journey that starts and ends on the shores of South Beach. His mane of graying hair floats in the wind. His shoulders lurch forward, a movement suggesting it might have been wiser to quit many years ago.
But he runs still, because he knows there's something insatiable about this ritual and the only friends he has will be there to run with him. And that when he runs, the regrets of an unfulfilled destiny can seem as frothy and impermanent as his New Balance footprint in the sand.
The whimsical thought -- run eight miles every day -- will reach a milestone Sunday, when local eccentric Robert ''Raven'' Kraft will log mile No. 100,000.
Truth is, Raven is seriously considering not making it to 100,008. He likes 100,000 -- it's a round, lyrical number grandiose enough to contain all the stories of hail, hurricanes and heartbreak.
E- Herald: Hiaasen.
But here's the deal. If government is serious about rebooting the economy, reforming healthcare and improving public education, everybody's going to pay for it -- just like we're paying for this brilliant, trillion-dollar adventure in Iraq (which, by the way, Boehner thinks was a swell idea.)F- Herald: They write letters.
The difference is that much of the money spent here at home will have a measurable impact on American children, college students, seniors, veterans, working families and small businesses.
As a taxpayer, I've got no problem with that. It makes more sense than starting a faraway war on a whim.
Re the baseball stadium: Whenever politicians in Miami-Dade talk about ''community'' and ''world-class city,'' something is about to happen that the taxpayers do not want.G- Sun-Sentinel: Do they really want us to use mass transit?

Passengers could pay more to ride Tri-Rail starting in June.H- Sun-Sentinel: Buy your iTunes now.
But looming larger this fall, there could be drastically fewer trains on weekdays and no service on weekends.
Tri-Rail's board of directors will hold a public hearing April 24 to discuss raising fares by 25 percent, the first increase since 1995. If approved, one-way fares to travel the full 72 miles between Miami International Airport and Mangonia Park would rise from $5.50 to $6.90 on June 1. A monthly adult pass would cost $100.
LOS ANGELES - — The world's largest music store, Apple Inc.'s iTunes, plans to boost the price of many singles to $1.29 April 7, breaking the psychological barrier of 99 cents in what could be the first big test of how much consumers will pay to download songs.I- Palm Beach Post: That's a lot of cookies.
