By Pam Greene Staff writer A 21-year-old Syracuse man was found shot to death at 10 a.m. Monday in an apart- ment at 1516 South Avenue. Joshua Fredette, of 100 Bertram Place, was last seen alive at 10 p.m. Saturday when he left his house with three friends, driving a white Grand Am, said Syracuse Po- lice Sgt. Tom Connellan. Police do not know the identity of his three companions, Connellan said. So far, there are no suspects, he said. Fredette Detec- lives are investigating whether Fredette's killing may be re- lated to the shooting of Ny- quest Golden, the two-year- old boy who remains in crit- ical condition at University Hospital after bullets rained into his house at 135 Wall St. on June 18. Fredette and Nate Cosby, who was in the house when Golden was shot, are half- brothers, Connellan said. Fredette's family said they emphatically do not believe there is any connection be- tween the two cases. Fredette's family reported him missing at 8 p.m. Sunday, Tohelppolke Detectives want to interview anyone who may have information about the case. Anyone with information can call detectives at 442-5222. when they found the Grand Am parked in a lot next to the South Avenue apartment building, Connellan said. The family drove the car home and then gave it to police for the investigation, he said.

By Gina Keating j Reuters Pasadena, Calif. A spec- tacular collision between a i spacecraft and a comet has freed a huge plume of primordial ma- i terial from die comet's nucleus i that could unlock the secret of how life arrived on Earth, NASA scientists said Monday. The first images returned from I the Deep Impact fly-by space- 1 craft showed a small fireball fol- lowed by a much larger, incan- descent flash that engulfed one end of the comet Tempel 1 as the i impactor smashed into its sur- face at a.m. Monday. I The impactor was vaporized upon slamming into the comet at mph the speed it I would take to fly from New- York to Los Angeles in about six minutes. The collision, which occurred 83 million miles from Earth, marks the first time a spacecraft i has come in contact with a I comet. Observatories on the ground reported that the explosion brightened the comet by a factor of five within 15 minutes of im- pact, scientists at NASA's Jet i Propulsion Laboratory in Pasa- into space dena said. Scientists could not immedi- ately determine the size of the crater produced by the impact because of the large plume of ice, dust and gases streaming out and obscuring one end of the comet, which is half the size of Manhattan. "We are waiting for the out- gassing to stop. It's clear it was still coining out for several hours and could go on for principal scientist Mike A'Heam said. The Deep Impact team had es- timated the washing machine- sized impactor would punch a hole anywhere from the size of a house to a football stadium, de- pending on the composition of the comet's surface. "We know that we created quite a crater. We believe it pen- etrated quite deeply so we know we'll get a good look at the inte- Project Manager Rick Grammier said Monday. "We just have a wealth of scientific information to go through in the next few months." The impact sent up twin plumes, of debris, the first ap- pearing as a narrow column that cast a long shadow across the comet. Another plume appeared seconds later on the heels of a brighter explosion, then fanned out in a star shape. Scientists said the plumes stretched for "at least thousands of kilometers" COMET'S, PAGE A-9 MY DATE WITH BOWWOW j day teen has M stories to teH CNY, PAGE D-1 INSIDE 'GHOST WHISPERER' Spooky new snow on CBS CNY, PAGE CM NEW DRIVER THINKS GREEN Kick the fossil fuels, writes Theresa Evans VOICES, PAGE B-3 University of Associated Press THE TEMPEL 1 COMET is shown after the probe from the Deep Impact spacecraft collided with the comet Monday.

State rule pushes kids out of child care Parents must sue ex before they get child care subsidy. Some refuse to sue. By Mamie Eisenstadt Staff writer At this time last year, the Sal- vation Army's six child care centers in Syracuse were packed. But this year is different. Two classrooms have been closed, cutting 25 slots. Some of the remaining 400 slots are un- filled. Liddy Hintz, director of day I care services at the agency, thinks a year-old state rule is be- hind the decreased enrollment. The rule requires single par- ents getting a child-care subsidy for low-income families to take their exes to court for a child support order. It has pushed doz- ens of children in Central New York out of child care and into the cracks the subsidy program was meant to fill, child advo- cates say. The pinch has been felt statewide. So many parents lost their subsidies in Westchester County because they refused to go to court that some centers might have to close. And the problems there are expected to be dwarfed by the morass that's created when New York City be- gins to implement the rule start- ing this month. In the rest of the state, the rule went into effect in May 2004, but county social service depart- ments and day care centers here say they haven't seen its full ef- fects yet. Many expect things to get worse as parents decide against seeking the subsidy be- cause they don't want to drag their exes into court. Day care providers, advocates and social service practitioners say the rule has harsh conse- quences for parents, mostly sin- gle mothers, who need the child care because they are working. Parents are reluctant to take their exes to court because they fear it will destroy whatever ten- uous relationship there is be- tween them, severing informal I agreements that brought a little money here and there, along with time spent with the child. They often have to lose time i from work to fill out the paper- work to sue their ex and go to court. And if the parent doesn't pay support or misses the court date, they have to go to court again.

Syracuse lost 2.9 percent of its population since 2000. Its 2004 population estimate is Only 25 of 251 cities with more than people saw a larger rate of decline in the first four years of this decade. Other cities with the same rate of losses: Baltimore, Akron, Minneapolis and Des Moines. Buffalo and Rochester each dropped 3.3 percent over that time. Syracuse now ranks 159th in size among American cities, according to the latest U.S. Census estimates. Its population falls just behind Pasadena, Calif., and just ahead of Torrance, Calif.
