› 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.

› Hiring plans for tech companies get boost from FloridaWorks grants
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.
