› $50 million Powerball winner has yet to show
Back in May, a lucky someone bought a winning Powerball ticket at Carrollwood Market. The jackpot: $50 million. Either that someone doesn't know or is keeping a secret. The ticket holder has until midnight on Nov. 22, to collect the winnings.

› Florida law says found items must be turned in to police

› Orlando airport has deal for rail connection
The board that governs the Orlando International Airport has reached a deal with a private company that could make an intercity passenger rail between Orlando and Miami one step closer.

› Farmers markets return for the season
