The Orlando Sentinel reckless driving. After they took him to the police station, the man told them that he had stabbed and strangled his sister. Seminole deputies were sent to the woman's home at 121 Primrose Road and saw her body on the floor by looking through a window. Ansley was detained in Bushnell, where he tried to hang himself in his jail cell. A police officer prevented the suicide.

Ansley was brought to the Seminole County Correctional Facility about 6 p.m. While there he tried to strangle Detective Sgt. John Thorpe and attacked another investigator and a nurse. None of them was injured. Bushnell police would give no information about Ansley's arrest or the accident in which he was involved.

Ansley is scheduled to make his initial court appearance at 1:30 p.m. today at the courtroom at the Seminole County Correctional Facility. ANGELA A wish for fish Steve Hawkins of Apopka watches longingly enjoyed an outing on the lake near State Road from a dock Sunday afternoon as fishermen try 437, but the 3-year-old appears ready to head their luck on Lake Apopka.

"They think they can do it so I decided to let them try," Snodgrass said. The past few weeks Grant and the Smiths have been setting up the corporation and meeting with Tucker, who Grace Smith said had been gracious and helpful to them. He has sold them tables, the office building and other equipment to help them set up, she said. "It's not like they're trying to revive what once was," said Tucker, 34. "I think they're just trying to stay in business." "I wish them the best of luck," he said.

Flea markets, once storehouses of secondhand goods, have become "outdoor discount stores," Tucker said. Competition from larger markets in Central Florida also hurt his enterprise, he said. Grant said the corporation "can't afford to put a lot of money" into the market yet but plans first to upgrade the concession stand and improve the flow of customers through the barn by cutting new doorways between stores. Parking will be behind the barn, where many of the outdoor stalls once stood. Although Grace Smith said the trio wants "a market with a little bit of everything," she said she hopes it attracts the same clientele that came to the Maitland Flea Market to browse among the clutter, inspect plants, and gossip like a family.

Hours of the market will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays during the summer and may be expanded to Fridays if the market is a success by autumn, Grant said. "We don't know what we're getting into but it's a real challenge," Grace Smith said.
