NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- From a distance to swimmers, surfers and sunbathers, the mammoth wet dirt spewing from a large piece of machinery looks like an oil well run amok, but it's really wet sand being pumped from the Intracoastal Waterway several miles away through a piping network snaking along the edge of the sand dunes.

DAYTONA BEACH -- Virginia Larzelere, the condemned mastermind behind the 1991 shotgun slaying of her Edgewater dentist-husband for a $2.1 million life insurance payout was all smiles Friday at the Justice Center because even though she was sentenced to life in prison, the death penaty was no longer at play.
