› Businesses meet needs of robots
Even a robot needs a home. That is what companies nationwide are realizing as they shift more production to robotics. Many are expanding through additions or, in some cases, excavating to accommodate extremely heavy live-in machines.

› Huge outdoor entertainment venue taking shape in rural Charlotte County
Twenty-six miles of leisure trails for ATVs, go carts and motorbikes. Bike tracks for Motocross races. A 40-acre paintball park. A 15,000-seat amphitheater that will host major national musical acts. A man-made recreational lake complete with cabanas and white sandy beaches.

› More rooms full at South Florida hotels
South Florida hotels closed out 2013 with fewer empty rooms and higher prices, buoyed by increases in international visitors, sports tourism and leisure business.

› Texas and Florida Lead Growth Among Large States From November to December
The ADP regional employment report for December is out, and the news is great for the Lone Star State once again. Texas and Florida lead job growth among large states. Private sector employment increased in all nine U.S. Census Bureau Divisions during the month of December 2013.
