› PNC Bank heating up with Florida economy
Vacationers flock to South South Florida for the sunshine; banks come for the hot economy. PNC Bank is one of the latest, opening 10 branches last year and expecting to add four this year, all of them in Broward County.

› Florida spent millions on flawed fingerprint system
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s troubled 5-year-old automatic fingerprint identification system (AFIS) is experiencing technical problems that are causing delays in investigations and arrests across the state. It has also cost far more to maintain than it did to design and build.

› Active adult communities keeping Baby Boomers busy

› Volusia worried no one knows SunRail is coming
Most weekday mornings about 30,000 cars head southwest on Interstate 4 from Volusia County to downtown Orlando, the Maitland office complexes or Winter Park. SunRail aims to pick off some of those motorists but Volusia officials worry that the people in charge of the train are not reaching out enough in their county through advertising and public relations events.
