Best of January 2017

Feld Entertainment announcing the end of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus meant I spent the morning of the MLK holiday covering Feld’s presser. We reported on Feld’s economic incentive package earlier in 2016, which gives us great background to work with going forward as we keep our eye on how many of those promised jobs Feld keeps in its life post-circus.

I dug into some Airbnb data provided to the Herald by the home-turned-accommodation platform. We checked the data Florida keeps on its refugee services and found less than 3 percent of them that received resettlement services from the state are from the seven countries in Trump’s bungled travel ban order.
