Traffic app helps holiday shoppers

Before you head out to the mall this year for Christmas shopping keep in mind that you can take a look at what traffic looks like before you get on the highway.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has an app for that.

The Florida 511 app now features traffic camera views that show crashes, congestion and other incidents on all of Florida's interstates and roll roads. The app uses the iPhone's GPS tracking to provide you with traffic information within miles of your location.

Antique car warehouse to benefit charity

Antique car warehouse to benefit charity

Odessa- For those of you who love classic cars and antiques, you should check out this warehouse at 2445 Success Drive in Odessa.

Behind the warehouse walls, James Cook has designed a private museum of automobiles from 1915 to 1986, and radios, cameras and other trinkets throughout the years! In addition to being amazed by the pieces of antiquity, you'll also be supporting a good cause.

Donations to the museum will benefit the Foundation for Early Learning. Cook hopes taking his passion for antiquity is helping raise support for the Foundation one dollar at a time, and create a nonprofit that is sustained by the community dollar rather than government funding.

Donations are encouraged to support the Foundation's mission of promoting the importance of high quality Early Education within Pasco and Hernando Counties.
