DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Robert De Niro puts Daytona Beach on the map similar to the fashion of Police Chief Mike Chitwood disparaging one of his patrol cops in front of the TV cameras or Juan Pablo Montoya embarrassing the billionaire France family by barreling into a jet dryer during the Daytona 500 that ignites a huge fireball and even bigger crater in the track.

Hollywood's leading geriatric man known for movies like "Taxi Driver," "The Deer Hunter," "Raging Bull," and "Meet the Fockers" returns to the big screen with "Dirty Grandpa," a comedy, co-starring Zac Efron and Zoey Deutch.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Bike Week is coming to an end and so far attendance has been light and fatalities have been limited to one.

The "500,000 bikers" figure that the Daytona-area Chamber of Commerce and local media have used for years has been exaggerated for the better part of a decade now.

And this year, there hasn't even been half that number of visitors for the 10-day rally that ends Sunday.

And as a result, fatalities are down, too. The lone biker fatality occurred in Deltona, though because it occurred during Bike Week, it's considered part of the biker rally since it's in the same county.

A motorcyclist lost his life Monday afternoon in a collision with a school bus in Deltona. The cause of the crash is under investigation by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- I believe due diligence has not been conducted regarding an increase in beach tolls. It is reported revenue will double if tolls double, but there is no guarantee this increase will occur.
