Orlando - The web is abuzz with images from the Amway Arena implosion. Here are some awesome views of the successful demolition and the incredible sounds people heard standing not far away. It's great to hear the reaction of folks on the ground.
This would be great footage to use for the iPhone app, Action Movie FX.
Many Central Florida residents have fond memories of watching the Magic, live concerts, and other events the Amway Arena has hosted over the last 23 years.
Now, it is time to make those same memories with the new Amway Center.
Orlando - An unmasked, armed woman robbed the Winn Dixie on Conroy Road and Michigan Street. That doesn't seem strange right?
What is remarkable is that business went on as usual, no one even noticed the robbery taking place.
According to the store manager, she pulled out a gun, and they went to the safe room where she emptied it out, packed her bag, and left.
Incredible enough, the store manager, customers, and empoyees suffered no injuries. No one was shot. This woman's approach to robbery was smooth as silk. She was able to get in, get out, and get paid without harming innocent people.
Oddly enough, they also can't get a good description of her as the accounts seem to vary from person to person interviewed. So unless she turns herself in, she may never be caught.
Apopka - Rare a day to get to see the victim stand up for themselves. We couldn't be more proud of 33 year old Secretta Neal. Local mother of four.
After a day of shopping for seemingly useless crap at Wal-Mart, she was followed home by a couple of idiot thugs who underestimated the will of a woman.
These jerks kicked in the door, put a gun to her 14 year old son's neck, tied up her boyfriend, and demanded money.
Because working hard for it is just totally out of the question.
Secretta outwitted her would-be robbers by going to her closet and getting a 9mm. She shot one of them dead, in the living room. However, before going down, he fired off one shot. Hitting Secretta in upper right arm.
Not only did she protect her family as those men were armed, she proved a valuable point. The 9mm platform is sufficiently deadly for close quarters situations and a great home defense option for most people.
