California's governor is ripping into Florida Gov. Rick Scott and his latest effort to try to convince companies to move to Florida.

State inspectors say a failing sewage plant in southwest Florida pumped hundreds of thousands of gallons of inadequately treated liquid sewage into nearby mangroves earlier this year.

The impasse over Florida's next insurance commissioner ended Friday.

With a Hail Mary move, Denny Hamlin ended Joe Gibbs' 23-year drought at the Daytona 500.

Gibbs made it clear that he had no use for the victories his drivers collected in the exhibition races leading into Sunday's season-opener.
