› Virtual schools help some students get ahead
Some students take one or two advanced college-prep courses to get ahead. Others are looking for “grade forgiveness,” taking online courses to make up for the classes they failed or did poorly in.

If sitting in a shuttered house snacking on canned beans and warm water doesn't sound enticing to you, there are brazen bar owners out there, ready to take in customers, storm or not.

The workforce agency for Alachua and Bradford counties awarded almost $3.1 million to 12 companies to train 350 new hires in technical positions over the next two to four years.
