New staff writer John Tucker has his first cover story under his belt with "Daddy's Little Girl," the story of 12-year-old Madeline Green, a south-city tween who may well be the next Tiger Woods of women's mixed martial arts.

It's about redemption with Madeline's father, a former MMA fighter named "Mean Mike Green" learning how to steer clear of the law as his daughter's trainer and No. 1 fan.
Meanwhile, restaurant critic Ian Froeb is gaga for the new downtown steakhouse, Prime 1000. Music writer Roy Kasten interviews songwriter extraordinaire and county-music legend Kris Kristofferson prior to his March 9 show at the Fabulous Fox Theatre.
