    Educating youth on financial responsibility

    As part of our ongoing legislative priorities for the 2014 Legislative Session, the Florida Credit Union Association (FCUA) is proud to actively participate and promote Financial Literacy Month this April.

  • Defensive driving “with friends”

    When driving I have been practicing a laissez-faire attitude for many years now since it is totally useless to get upset, especially here in Miami Beach where we have so many visitors trying to find an address or just enjoying the views.

  • On I-95, please pass on the left

    While I commend Tom Swick for bringing the issue of safe driving to the fore, he has misplaced the blame for what he identifies as discourteous driving in South Florida (Try this: Connect – in a good way – with fellow drivers on I-95, Readers’ Forum, April 14).
