Published October 17, 2005

TAMPA - A 24-year-old Riverview pedestrian died Saturday night crossing a dark stretch of U.S. 301.

About 8:45 p.m., Saul Ayala-Nava ran in front of a Toyota sport utility vehicle headed north on U.S. 301. Florida Highway Patrol investigators do not know why he darted into the road.

Ayala-Nava of 10004 Echo Mountain Drive in Riverview died in the crash. The Toyota's driver and two passengers were not injured.

Enrollment starts today for prepaid tuition plan

Parents can sign up for the state's prepaid college tuition program starting today, locking in the cost of education for their children at a Florida public university or community college.

Enrollment runs until Jan. 31. After that, parents must wait until next fall to sign up.

People who enroll pay a set amount in advance for a guarantee that the tuition will be fully covered, no matter how much the cost increases. Tuition has gone up more than 85 percent at Florida public universities in the last decade alone.

Some financial analysts caution that parents should consider the proposition carefully, however. Some college savings prepayment plans could reduce students' eligibility for grants and loans.
