Another quiet news day in South Florida. Here's about all I could find for you.
A- Herald: Giving up the pet with the house.
As foreclosures mount and unemployment rises, many in Broward and Miami-Dade are finding they can no longer afford their pets.B- Herald: Wrong turn, Clyde.
''We are now receiving weekly calls from police having us go into foreclosed homes with them because pets have been abandoned,'' said Sara Pizano, director of Miami-Dade County's Animal Services Department. ``That's not something that happened a year or two ago.''
On a day made for tourists and other tropical-weather-worshiping creatures, the 12,376-strong ING Miami Marathon and Half Marathon had its seventh running in near-ideal circumstances -- until Jynocel Basweti of Kenya made a wrong turn.C- Herald: Video, Miami Marathon.
Confusion about the route altered the race for the two front-runners.
Basweti, 22, was in the lead Sunday at about Mile 20, saw a video truck turn unexpectedly and got distracted. He followed the truck, which, according to race organizers, had been incorrectly ordered off the course by a police officer.

Some teenage boys called The Palm Beach Post newsroom Sunday evening to take credit for the prank - one they said was sanctioned by their parents. They said they were acting in retaliation after they lost their trust funds to the accused swindler.
