A new law goes into effect October 1st which will create stricter penalties for stealing beehives, that’s good news for Florida farmers experiencing decreased profits and honey bee die-offs.

A national charter school advocacy group has released its annual ranking of charter-school friendly states. Florida grabbed the number five spot, down two places from a year before.

According to the National Association for Public Charter Schools, Florida continues to rank among the top states for having charter-friendly laws.  But just because a state has strong charter school laws, does not mean it has strong charter schools.
