Hialeah man faces 60 counts of credit-card fraud

A fistful of fake credit cards found with a Hialeah man means he may face five dozen felony fraud counts, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office reports. Rogelio Rodriguez, 41, was booked into county jail on 60 counts after deputies seized 25 counterfeit credit cards from his 2014 Nissan SUV. The cache included phony American Express and Walmart gift cards, along with fake credit cards from several banks and merchants.

Beyond the Classroom: The value of grades

Grades and GPAs (grade point averages) have always been a badge of honor or a source of strife. In a regular class, an A will get you 4 points, a B 3, a C 2, a D 1, and an F 0. Thus a 4.0 GPA implies you garnered As in all your subjects. More rigor, as in advanced placement courses often adds value to the grade.
