Stay off this Woman's Lawn

Southpinellas: Mugged at home, but not helpless: "ST. PETERSBURG - For 36 years, Shirley Ives felt secure in her home. So when her husband died nearly 20 years ago, she stayed by herself.

'I never felt afraid,' said Ives, 82. That's why, on the evening of Aug. 7, she opened her door to a stranger, and a brutal attack.

A self-described 'tough old bird,' Ives is experiencing some fame for fighting back. Bruised and blindfolded, she nevertheless stabbed her attacker with an ice pick."
