What you need to know about Florida today

› Digital Domain vetting ignored critical reports, dire finances
Infatuated with the idea of building a digital animation college in the heart of downtown, West Palm Beach leaders ignored dire warning signs about Digital Domain before a deal that cost the city $2 million and put in jeopardy a $10 million city-owned property.

› Jacksonville Farmers Market looking to grow into 'destination'
Farmers markets have become a trendy thing in recent years. Every Saturday, the fruit-and-veggie vendors set up at the Beaches Green Market and Riverside Arts Market. They set up in Fernandina Beach, St. Augustine, not to mention parking lots here and there. Long before those sprouted up, for more than 70 years, the Jacksonville Farmers Market has been on Beaver Street.

› Downtown Orlando space starting to recover
Downtown Orlando's office market is recovering at a faster rate than the Central Florida market overall, according to a new report by Cushman & Wakefield Inc. The vacancy rate for the central business district during the third quarter was 17 percent, down from 18.5 percent a year earlier.

› Cruise megaship terminal is an idea still just off Tampa Bay's horizon
To save its cruise ship business, Tampa might have to move it to Pinellas County. It's a shift that could make a lot of money for both sides of the bay, according to Richard Wainio, the recently departed director of the Tampa Port Authority.
