If you’re headed in or out of downtown Orlando this evening, give yourself some extra travel time.

Over 18,000 runners are taking part in the 20th Annual IOA Corporate 5K and streets are shut down.

Here’s a map of the route that you can share with friends who might be headed this way. Race starts at 7:15 p.m. #wftv

Toni Phelps will spend a year and a day in prison for leaving six starving pets in her Gulf Breeze home.

Even though Phelps denied leaving three dogs and three cats in the home after moving out, the judge wasn't sympathetic, saying she was "going to jail because this is just terrible."

Here's what officers found inside the abandoned home >>http://at.wftv.com/1hNE2dC #wftv

Since 2009, just about every fee you pay for your vehicle in Florida has doubled.

The cost for your tag renewal goes down in September, but as #9Investigates’ Christopher Heath found, all other fees stay the same.

Do you think those should go down, too? Get more details on Eyewitness News at 5:44 p.m.

Here’s a breakdown of the increases >> http://at.wftv.com/1qLhyw4 #wftv

A Vero Beach man has created new app that would make it easier for people who don’t speak English to communicate with 911 dispatchers.

Last year, a call in Orange County to help a woman who later died was delayed because none of the dispatchers on duty spoke Spanish.

Here’s more on that story and how the app works from Channel 9’s Mario Boone >> http://at.wftv.com/1mifOJ5 #wftv

Janus Jurisoo was not going to let a robber terrorize the cashiers at a CVS pharmacy in Sarasota.

As the crook demanded pills from the cashier, Janus sneaked up on him, put him in a choke hold and tackled the man.

Watch the surveillance video of the take down and read what Janus had to say about his brave decision >> http://at.wftv.com/RrjhKY #wftv

High school freshmen soon won't have to worry about memorizing so many definitions of obscure words for the SAT.

The College Board is overhauling the exam, requiring test-takers to read passages closely to define words in the given context.
