1. Nine fallen police officers and deputies will be remembered during a memorial service in Fort Lauderdale. The Broward Sheriff's Office is holding the memorial on Thursday. Sheriff Scott Israel will say a few words in remembrance. The officers being honored span several decades.

2. Doral’s mayor stormed from the dais early Thursday after declaring he will hire a chief of staff that would work privately for him. The drama centered around Mayor Luigi Boria clashing again with City Manager Joe Carollo.

3. Expect mostly cloudy and windy weather in South Florida again Thursday, along with a riptide risk. The forecast calls for highs in the low-80s and lows will be in the upper-60s.

4. A Cuban man's lawsuit in South Florida against Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aroldis Chapman has been delayed until next summer. Trial had been set for December, but a Miami federal judge agreed to postpone it until June because the Cuban plaintiff is still imprisoned in Cuba. The plaintiff, Danilo Curbelo Garcia, claims that he was arrested in 2008 after Chapman falsely accused him of involvement in human trafficking.

5. To help ease long lines for international travelers, Miami International Airport has installed 36 new self-service passport control kiosks in the North Terminal.
