OCSO conducts
probe into death
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) is cur-
rently conducting an investi-
gation into what the agency is
-calling a 'suspicious death.'
Around 9:40 a.m. Friday,
March, 25, OCSO deputies
were summed to S.W. 19th
Ave. where they found 54-
year-old Pedro Denova lying in
the yard.
According to an OCSO
press release, the department
would not comment on the
cause of death.
The investigation into the
man's death is continuing.

Egg hunt: Easter Bunny makes an early visit


Staff photos/Debra Smythe
On Thursday, March 24, (left to right) Emilie Lege, Karli Holtkamp and Josie Wallace as
members of North Elementary School Student Council hid Easter eggs for children in pre-
kindergarten, kindergarten and first graders to find on the new playground at North Ele-
mentary School. This project happens every year with the sponsorship of Alcia Walker
and Pam Matthews. The teachers of these classes provide three plastic eggs per student,
the student council members provide the jellybeans and with the help of the sponsors this
event goes on to the thrill and enjoyment of each student and the student that is lucky
enough to find a plastic egg with a sticker is awarded an extra goodie bag full of candy.


Proposed



bypass roads


are discussed


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
It was a long afternoon ses-
sion for the Okeechobee Coun-
ty -Commissioners at their
Thursday meeting.
That afternoon they dis-
cussed alternate roadways, the
reservation policy for county
facilities, relocation of space in
the old courthouse, a'draft poli-
cy on burying the indigent and
conducted a public hearing on
hurricane recovery programs
and potential projects.
In continuation of a discus-
sion that began at the March 10
meeting, commissioners
looked again at the topic of


bypass roads at their March 24
meeting. John Wright and Jim
Baxter, consultants to the Flori-
da Department of Transporta-
tion (DOT), presented maps of
proposed bypass routes that
would route westbound traffic
on S.R. 70 north of the City of
Okeechobee and on to U.S. 98
and S.R. 70. This would allow
traffic to bypass the center of
the city and miss the congested
intersection of S.R. 70 and U.S.
441.
The consultants discussed a
computer model that would
allow planners to predict traffic
patterns, which would allow

tackles county


drainage issue


On Thursday, March 24, at North Elementary School the children in this first graae class
ran out on to the new playground in search for plastic eggs with jelly beans in them. This
is sponsored by the North Elementary School Student Council and this special event
happens every year. The students that find the egg with a sticker on it are also award-
ed a goodie bag with candy in it. Once the children find their three plastic eggs and
return to the starting point they were also given a pencil with an Easter eraser on it.

At a lengthy Thursday
meeting, the Okeechobee
County Board of County Com-
missioners covered a variety
of topics including a subdivi-
sion plat approval, the Scott
Driver project and drainage
improvements.
After an extended discus-
sion of the drainage situation
at Bridalwood Ranches subdi-
vision, commissioners grant-


ed final plat approval to the
subdivision located on the
east side of Berman Road,
north of Quail Woods.
Commissioner Elvie Posey
stated that residents of Quail
Woods expressed concern
that the new subdivision
would create drainage prob-
lems.

re Commissioner Clif Betts sug-
gested that it might be cheaper
for DOT to help the county with a
bypass road than to build up S.R.

Mr. Wright said the computer
model would allow county plan-

In another matter, commis-
sioners reviewed and discussed
the county's indigent burial poli-
cy and looked at the fees paid by
other counties for indigent bur-
ial.


mmen- Local funeral home operator
ers. Paul Mitchell noted that he loses
dis- money with the fees currently
in the paid by the county. He cautioned
against abuse of the policy, and
3eorge suggested that the county qualify
onver- families for indigent burial before
actions they are sent to the funeral
at the home.
by the Currently, he continued, the
funeral home is told to send the
bill to the county before it has
been verified that the family qual-
ifies for indigent burial.
P It was noted that the veterans
services officer make the deter-
) mination if a family qualifies.
While other counties contract
with one funeral home, the cur-
rent policy in Okeechobee Coun-
ty is to let the families decide
which of Okeechobee's two
funeral homes they would like to
utilize.
Commissioners took no
action on the matter..
Debbie Belcher of Roumelis
Planning and Development
asked the commissioners if they
knew of any additional vacant
condemned houses that could
be demolished with the Commu-
O nity Development Block (CDBG)
grant money she is requesting for
the county. Other CDBG funds
have been requested for expan-
sion of the Okeechobee Utility
Authority wastewater treatment
plant and a stormwater project in
'S 1 Douglas Park.
Ms. Belcher said that other
grant funds would be used to
pave a street in El Mira Sol, a low-
income housing development of
S.R. 70W.
She said there is still no word
from the state on the requested
.grants.
On behalf of the City of Okee-
chobee, Councilman Dowling
Watford endorsed the county's
grant applications.

Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) drainage permit.
Jeff Sumner, an engineer with
the firm of LBFH, stated that the
drainage system was designed to
function without the proposed
Nubbin Slough Stormwater
Treatment Area (STA). He said if
the STA were completed, it
would help the drainage system.
Mr. Sumner said the drainage
system was designed to stop
flooding on Berman Road. He
added that 60 acres of lakes are
planned to divert more water to
wetlands, and water control
structures will be built down-
stream of the wetlands.
The long anticipated Scott
Driver project was tabled just
when it appeared that a contract
could be let.
Sheltra and Sons' bid of
$1,938,335.70 was the lowest of
four bids submitted. However,
Donnie Oden, capital improve-
ments director for the county,
noted that a revised building
plan had to be gent back to the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) for approval.
He said that those changes
would have to be accepted
before funding could be
approved.
The item was tabled until
next meeting.
Commissioners spent consid-
erable time discussing drainage
problems in the vicinity of S.W.
Third Ave. and S.W. 28th Street
with Gene Schriner, of the coun-
ty's engineering firm of Craig A.
Smith.
They discussed the best way
to move drainage water west to
Whidden Ditch.'
Commissioner John Abney
noted that current culverts
restrict the flow of water under
Durance and-Wolff roads. He
stated that a pipe along S.W 28th
Street would improve drainage,
cut down on maintenance and
provide for a sidewalk.
Mr. Schriner said that putting
in curb and gutter would be a
perfect solution. He promised to
come back to the board with a
menu of options and costs. He
noted that Community Block
.Development Grants are avail-
able for some of the proposed
drainage projects.
Mr. Schriner recommended
putting in pipe, sidewalks along
with curbs and gutters on S. W.


28th Street.
In other action, the commis-
sioners:
approved the closure of S.E.
Sixth St. between S.E. 36th Ave.
and S.E. 40th Ave. for 12 hours
on April 23 to allow Everglades
Baptist Church to hold a block
party;
amended the budget to
allow for $60,940 in a Homeland
Security grant to be carried over
from the last fiscal year;
approved a proposal from
General Physics Corporation to
provide certain emergency man-
agement planning, exercise and
training services at a cost of
$50,876.83;
approved application for a
90/10 Homeland Security grant
in the amount of $150,000 for
the Okeechobee County
Fire/Rescue Department;
purchased two mowers for
the road maintenance depart-
ment at a cost of $17,383.50;
authorized a lease agree-
ment for a copier to be used by
senior services;
tabled a proposal to charge
non-county residents to use the
library's computers to give the
county attorney time to study the
proposal;
agreed to recognize the
sheriff's day camp program as a
county-government activity;
appointed Marion Davis to
the Heartland Library Coopera-
tive Governing Board;
approved purchase of. a
$40,206 filing system for the
clerk's office for use in the new
courthouse; and,
approved an emergency
contract in the amount of
$54,625 to Okeechobee Asphalt
and Concrete to pave 19 pave-
ments cuts that were made to
replace culverts.
City of Okeechobee Council-
man Dowling Watford addressed
the commissioners on another
matter that afternoon. He
expressed the city. councils'
"extreme concerns" about
drainage in that area. He said the
city council felt "very strongly"
that immediate action should be
taken.
Commissioner Clif Betts
informed Mr. Watford of the
commission's actions that morn-
ing concerning drainage.
Mr. Watford then suggested
that county staff work with city
staff on the problem.

Constructing bridges
Congratulations to the winning bridge building team in Mrs. Goggans' honors algebra
class. Eighth grade math students worked in teams, studying bridge design, then creat-
ing the strongest bridge from toothpicks and glue. The grand finale was the bridge-
breaking, where a bucket was suspended from the center of the bridge and weights were
added until the bridge collapsed. The strongest bridge in Mrs. Goggans' class held 19.5
pounds, created by "Squeezing Lemons," made of Taylor Pritchard, Olivia Skeen, Kaylee
Davis, Vick Patel, and Tim Brazil. After the final weight, Kaylee exclaimed to one of her
teammates, "Oh my gosh! That's like both of our purses put together!" The girls had
been afraid their bridge would not hold the minimum five-pound weight, so they had test-
ed the bridge's strength before the competition began with Kaylee's purse. "I figured if
it held my purse, we would be fine," Kaylee explained later. Team members are Vick
Patel, (back) Taylor Pritchard, Kaylee Davis, Olivia Skeen.

4 OPINION


Speak Out

Exercise your right to free speech. Speak out is a free 24-hour
opinion line. Call and express your opinion or ask question
about public issues. You are not required to leave your name.
While we want you to speak out freely, the newspaper reserves
the right to edit calls for clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness.
To speak out call (863)467-2033, fax (863)763-5901 or e-mail:
okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submissions to
Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Rebel Flag
"Why do so many people around here adorn their vehicles and
homes with the Rebel flag? This flag represents a flawed philosophy
that ended when the Confederacy surrendered in 1865. I1 see people
wearing T-shirts with this flag on them along with certain sayings
and incorrect historical facts. Perhaps if these people picked up a
history book, and read a little they would realize exactly what this
flag and the people who fought to defend it stood for the preser-
vation of slavery in the southern states. We should all be ashamed
that one group of people owned and abused another not be
proud of it. Take down those Rebel flags and replace them with the
U.S. flag instead."

Fish Limits
"This is in regard to recycling specks. Correct me if I am wrong,
but I was told 25 specks was the limit for each person fishing per day
- not three times a day." (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. You are
right: the legal limit on Lake Okeechobee is 25 specks per day, per
licensed angler. However, that limit could vary on different bodies of
water.)

Retirement
"I wish all you Bush haters would move to CAnada or Mexico.
About this Social Security: retirement is personal and everyone
needs to take care of their own, not the government. It came in dur-
ing the depression to help people have some food. It was not started
so you could go to Florida for the winter. If you knew what the presi-
dent is trying to do with Social Security you would know that he is
trying to do the right thing."

Social Security
"To the person who is sorry that they voted for George W, if Lyn-
don Johnson would have kept his hands off of the Social Security it
would not be in the mess it is in now. He convinced them to put it in
the general fund and that has cost us millions and millions. And, he
only did it to make his deficit look good during the Vietnam War.
Come on Democrats, straighten up and don't let this happen again."

NA Meeting
"There will be a new Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meeting at the
New Horizons, 1600 S.W. Second Ave., building behind the Brah-
man Theatre. The meetings will be on Wednesday from 6:45 until
7:45 p.m. There will be a speaker meeting there this Wednesday,
March 30, at 6:45 p.m."

No Contractors
"Why won't Glades and Okeechobee counties let licensed con-
tractors come in here and help us get our places straightened back
up? We are-not getting anything done out here and it really looks
bad."

200 Numbers?
"Having missed some papers we are trying to find out what 200
numbers Pete Gawda printed. Please print them again." (Editor's
Note: Thanks for calling. We're not sure what callers are referring to
when they mention the 200 numbers, in regard to help for seniors
'with health problems. However, the numbers we think you are
requesting are: Lake Education and Prescription Solutions (LEAPS),
866-368-9901; or, Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders (SHINE)
(863)763-5649.)

Call Frist
"I found out how a lot of people can save money on doctors: if
they want to know what is wrong with them they can call Senate
Majority Leader Bill Frist. He can tell them what is wrong with them-
'without even seeing them. They could save a lot of money that way.

Sainthood
"I think we ought to get Jeb and George W. Bush put up for saint-
hood in some way for the way that they have handled the Schiavo
case. Besides, to do that they would have to resign and that would
be a big improvement."

Letter to the Editor


Vote by Congress
sets bad precedent
The events surrounding the life
of Terri Schiavo are tragic enough.
Now congressional Republicans
and President Bush have made
things worse.
In one weekend they disabled
federalism, the separation of
powers and the rule of law. These
principles were embraced by the
Founding Fathers because they
tend to protect individual liberty.
By tearing them down, the
Republican leadership jeopardiz-
es our freedom. How ironic that
this comes at the hands of the
self-proclaimed party of limited
government.
It is beyond dispute that the
legal issues involved in the Schia-
vo case are state issues. That has
been the rule for more than 200
years. It is what has made the
American system a federal sys-
tem. The point of federalism is to
decentralize power, and its ration-
ale is that concentrated power is
dangerous always and every-
where regardless of which politi-
cal party rules.
Years ago Terri Schiavo went
into what many doctors describe
as a persistent vegetative state
without hope of recovery. She can
breathe, but she cannot take-food


or water on her own. Her hus-
band has sought to remove the
feeding and hydration tubes in
order, he says, to comply with her
express wish not to live this way.
Her parents have tried to block
him from having the support ter-
minated. The Florida state courts
have consistently sided with her
husband. The U.S. Supreme
Court earlier declined to review
the case because no constitution-
al issues are involved.
Last weekend the Republican-
controlled House and Senate hur-
riedly passed legislation permit-
ting Terri Schiavo's parents to
request the federal courts to take
a fresh look at the case as if the
state court had never ruled. Presi-
dent Bush signed the bill.
The case was heard Monday,
but the judge refused an emer-
gency order to reinsert the tubes
pending'a full hearing. The federal
court of appeals affirmed the
judge's order and the parents
appealed to the U.S. Supreme
Court.
Much could be said about this
sad case. Terri Schiavo had no liv-
ing will directing that she not be
sustained artificially. We have
only her husband's and a couple
of other people's testimony, and
he may have a conflict of interest
involving money earmarked for
her care. Others testified that she

never expressed such a desire.
Yet a trial judge found "clear
and convincing" evidence that
she did not wish to live this way.
Maybe the Florida law has
defects, but that's a subject for
another day. My focus here is on
Congress's and the president's
intervention. It was extraordinary
and ominous. The bill singled out
one case in an area where federal
authorities have no constitutional
jurisdiction. This makes no sense.
At any given time, many peo-
ple are in medical conditions sim-
ilar to Terri Schiavo's. In most of
these cases, the family members
agree to end artificial respiration,
feeding and hydration. No doubt
in some cases there is disagree-
ment, but the matter is settled out
of the news headlines.
Will Congress now intervene
in all these cases? If not, why not?
Aren't those lives precious too?
That the Republicans inter-
vened in this case, which has
been taken up by the anti-abor-
tion lobby (among others), hints
that cynical political calculations
were at work. A memo circulated
among Senate Republicans called
the Schiavo matter "a great politi-
cal issue," indicating its appeal to
the party's religious supporters. Is
this payback for 2004?
In the end, the bill probably
won't prolong Terri Schiavo's life.


But it may well cut short the rule
of law. It is no defense of the
Republicans to say that a young
woman was being starved to
death.
Congress has no constitutional
authority to exercise arbitrary
.power any time an emergency
catches its attention; especially
where there are no federal or con-
stitutional issues at stake. That it is
legally restrained. from doing
whatever it wants is part of What
we mean by the rule of law. That's
why its weekend actions are omi-
nous. We must fear for the prece-
dent it has set.
Both the president and mem-
bers of Congress take oaths to
preserve and protect the Constitu-
tion. Any time they pass and sign
a law thinking they will leave the
matter- of its constitutionality to
the courts, they violate their oaths..
The American system has a
division of powers, which was
violated in this case. But when it
comes to abiding by the Constitu-
'tion, there is no division of labor.

very successful for the anglers of
the Wal-Mart BFL tournament.
Congratulations to Rick Burton
for his first place finish in the
boater division with 29.10 lbs. of
Okeechobee largemouths and to
local angler Greg Caldwell for his
first place finish in the co-angler
division with 20.06 lbs. Burton
also had the big fish of the day in
the angler division. It weighed in
at 9.10 lbs. Caldwell shared big
fish honors with Craig Lovely.
They each pulled in a beautiful
7.13 lb. bass to capture the
award. Congratulations also go
to the following local anglers
and co-anglers for finishing in
the top 50 of their divisions.
Local anglers placing in the top
50 of the co-angler division were
(2) Virginia Ford; (18) Tony
DeVoss; (22) Bobby O'Bannon;
(42) David Stout; (44) Richard
Combs; (47) Rodney Eagle and
(49) Pat Riley. Local anglers plac-
ing in the top 50 of the angler
division were (7) Justin Schwier;
(28) Larry Crossman; (33) Steve
Fairtrace; (41) Gregory Maclean;
(44) Judd Shurley and (46)
George Greene ,
Virginia Ford was highly suce
cessful using a homemade spin-
nerbait. Rick Burton brought in
*his winning bag of fish,by flip-

There are still plenty of bass at
the Monkey Box, Kings Bar, Har-


ney Pond and in the river.
Anglers state that anywhere you
find clear water, you'll find fish.
Speck fishing is also great
right now. Speck fishermen are
stating that they are pulling in
their limits in less than an hour
jigging in the river. Gail Powers.
of Gail's Bait Pail said that her
customers are having a lot of
luck and bringing in the big ones
at Harney Pond and at Indian
Prairie. One angler had a great
two days of fishing at Nubbins
Slough. The speck fishermen are
buying up ice glow jigs because
they do well in dark, muddy
water. They are also catching
them on red-head and char-
treuse jigs as well as minnows.
Mark your calendars for April
2-3. There will be two separate
bass tournaments taking place

WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home Will depend on six
factors:






S Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
The sum of these costs is referred to as "PITI." Monthly homeowners'association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
e Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
e Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

bly best remembered for their
performances on Gospel
Singing Jubilee, which aired in
the late 60s and early 70s..
Although each of these indi-
viduals present their own dis-
tinctive musical styling, collec-
tively they share the common
goal of being the best they can
be for the glory and honor of the
Lord, as they present the Gospel
in song with a touch of excel-
lence.
Randy Shelnut is lead vocal-
ist, emcee and manager of the
group. His father, Dale, was one
of the founding members of the
Dixie Echoes, and Randy has


been with the group since 1969.
Besides writing many of the
group's most popular songs, he
has received the Singing News

egory. Randy has kept the Dixie
Echoes in the forefront of Gospel
Music by continuing a grand
legacy that originated in 1960.
Stewart Varnado, pianist, is
originally from Franklinton, La.
His personality and showman-
ship added with his versatile style
has already made him a fan
favorite across the country. Stew-
art has been nominated for
Favorite Pianist in the Singing

The Dixie Echoes have
become a respected standard in

ministry continues to play an
important rolein influencing the
performances of many newer
groups who enter the gospel
music arena. There is no doubt
that the Dixie Echoes will be

The new Ford Five Hundred puts big-car interior into a midsize body and adds a 21 cu.-ft.
trunk one of the largest available.


Ford redesigns the American sedan


By Greg Hendriks
.Ford says 2005 is its "Year of
the Car," and this is their "car"
Their new flagship Five Hundred
is the 20015 equialent of its reo-
lutionar. Taurus in 1986.
Like the Taurus 19 \ears
before, it helped redefine the
American car But wh rile Taurus
was mostly about styling and
character, the FiVe Hundred rede-
fines the interior and pow'ertraMri
According to Ford, the Fi\e
Hundred is a new% car-based
crossover vehicle. It's a four-door
sedan with SUV and crossover
advantages, including cargo.: capa-
bility, versatility "command" -seat-
ing and available with all-wheel
drive.
It accomplishes this by mrarr\-
ing a sedan bod\ to an all-new,
"Volvo-inspired" crossover plat-
fo'm. Volvo-inspired.' Don't be
surprised because the Swedish-
maker Volvo is part of Ford's
European-based Premier -Auto-
motive Group (PAG.i.
Three inches longer than
today's Taurus but a foot shorter
'than Ford's Crown Victoria. the
Five Hundred cleverly crams a
big-car interior into a midsize
body and adds a 21 cu -ft trunk,
one of the largest available
Three models aie offered,
beginning w ith the well-equipped
Five Hundred SE. The mid-range
SEL' adds appearance features,
dual-zone air conditioning, anr
electronic message center, premi--
um sound system and leather-
wrapped steering w heel and shill
knob. The top-of-the-ine Lirmited
adds to that a painted bright gi le..
an Audiophile sound system,
heated exterior mirrors, leather
seating surfaces and heated dri\ er
and front passenger seats.
Inside you will find copious
room and 60 40 toid-dow n rear
Seats, upscale materials, colors,
textures and graphics that Ford
calls "guilt-free luxur\ The
design builds on the Euro theme,
with materials and surfaces vary-

dles to soft-touch paint and high-
quality fabric or leather. The SE
has grey carbon-fiber-look

One appealing truck/SUV
attribute is their high seating. This
helps drivers see over-or at least
eye-to-eve with other vehicles,
providing a feeling of security, and
the Five Hundred introduces a
portion of that appeal to the
sedan segment.
The front seat's hip point is
four inches higher than that in a
typical midsize sedan, and the
rear seats are higher still.

parking assist and a moon roof,
buf as of yet, no navigation s.s-
tem.
While the 203-hp 24-valve
DOHC Duratec 30 3.0-liter V.-6
does not offer class-leading
power or torque, the CVT (Con-
tinuously Variable Transmission)
and 6-speed automatic transaxles
help deliver high efficiency with
more than adequate perform-
ance.
Both transaxles have- wide
ratio spans from lowest (for accel-
eration) to highest (for econo-
my), and the smoother and qui.
eter V-6 was designed to meet
California Low Emissions Vehicle
(LEV) II standards.
The CVT (an industry first in
high volume) is standard with
AWD and some FWD applica-
tions. It uses a pair of variable-size
pulleys, one for input from the
engine, the other for output to the
drive wheels-cOnnected by a
metal chain to constantly vary the
effective gear ratio to meet chang-
ing driving demands.
When additional torque is
needed for acceleration or uphill
climbs, it seamlessly creates the
best ratio to keep the engine oper-
ating at its optimum speed. It can
be disconcerting at first to hear
engine rpm racing ahead of vehi-
cle speed on .acceleration, but the
shiftless process is- fuel efficient
and smooth as glass.
The Five Hundred is a front-
wheel-drive car with optional all-
wheel drive "inspired" by a
proven Volvo system. It uses an
electronically controlled, electro-
hydraulic Haldex limited-slip vis-
cous coupling just ahead of the
rear differential to transfer torque
to the rear wheels whenever the
fronts begin to slip. Electronic
controls gather information from
the anti-lock brakes and other
. sensors to enable it to react within
50 milliseconds, much faster than
competitive viscous devices,. -
Available traction control
(standard with AWD) uses selec-
tive braking to provide similar
torque transfer side-to-side. AWD
models also have self-leveling
rear shocks to maintain correct
ride height regardless of load.
Dual-piston aluminum front
calipers and large rotors front and
rear provide strong, fade-free
braking, while the fully independ-
ent suspension, stiff body struc-
ture and precise rack-and-pinion
steering give a supple ride with


surprising good handling.
Ford admits that Volvo con-
tributed significantly to the Five
Hundred's state-of-the-art safety
technology. For starters, the
"Volvo-inspired" platform offers
class-leading stiffness with rela-
1ivel) soft crush zones designed
into impact areas. When
equipped with Ford's Safety
Canopy and side airbags, the Five
Hundred should earn top crash
test ratings.
Frontal impact energy is
absorbed by the frame, rails,
:which employ a bumper -plate
design, while excess energy is
transferred around the passenger
compartment into a high-strength
safety cage.
Front-impact performance
also meets the revised Federal
Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208
requiring the restraint system to
automatically adjust to the front-
seat passenger.
The airbag controller uses
occupant classification sensing to
determine whether the seat is
occupied and whether a passen-
ger -is an adult, child or child in a
safety seat-and adjusts airbag
deployment accordingly. Another
patent-pending feature tailors the
steering column's collapse to the
driver's size and belt use.
Rear-impact performance is
designed to meet proposed future
crash standards, while side pro-
tection is a particular strength
thanks to the combination of
Ford's industry-leading Safety
Canopy airbag technology and
structural features that help safe-
guard occupants from intrusion
by channeling crash energy away
from the passenger compart-
ment.
An innovative cross-car beam
reinforces the structure between
the B-pillars and helps direct ener-
gy away from passengers to an
engineered failure point under the
console. Because the front seats
are mounted .atop this beam, sec-
ond-row passengers get the
bonus of airliner-style foot room.
As .Ford intended, the Five
Hundred is a game changing mid-
size sedan with full-size roomi-
ness, European dynamics and
safety, plus a lot of premium con-
tent and surprising strong value
per transportation dollar.
Overall, I believe Ford has suc-
ceeded in achieving its goals for
the Five Hundred.

Question: My 1985 Buick Park
Avenue's catalytic converter
plugged up and had to be
replaced. Why did it plug up, and
what can I do to prevent this hap-
pening again?
Answer: There are several rea-
sons why a catalytic converter will
plug up. Three of the most com-
mon reasons for plugged convert-
ers are using leaded gas, exces-
sive oil consumption and a
misfiring engine. Leaded gasoline
is not commonly available any-
more but it still can be found in a
few places.
The lead is used to boost the
octane rating of the gasoline and
provides lubrication for engine
valves. Some of the lead flows out
the exhaust where it bonds to the
materials in the catalytic convert-
er and plugs it up. It takes more
than one tank of leaded gas to
plug a converter, but once
plugged, the converter must be-
replaced. Use unleaded gas to
prevent this.


Excessive engine oil consump-
tion causes carbon build up in the
engine and exhaust system. The
carbon plugs the small passages
in the converter and cannot be
removed. Engine oil consump-
tion problems should be repaired
before replacing the converter;
otherwise the new converter will
plug as well. .
A misfiring engine is the most
likely cause of your plugged con-
verter. When a spark plug doesn't
fire, the unburned fuel 'in the
cylinder is blown out the exhaust
into the converter. It is the con-
verter's job to break down the
gasoline hydrocarbons into less
harmful emissions and a lot of
heat is generated during this
process.
If too much unburned fuel
enters the converter, then the con-
verter temperature can quickly
get so hot that the material inside
melts and plugs the exhaust.
I have seen converters that
were glowing red hot after only a
few blocks of driving with two-
misfiring cylinders. A properly


tuned and running engine is
essential to protect the catalytic
converter. Sometimes misfiring
cylinders are not noticeable at
highway speeds so a good tune
up improves your fuel economy
and prolongs your converter life.
Question: I installed a set of
fog lights on my 1990 Mustang
and wired them in with the low
beam headlamps. Now the low
beam and fog lights flash off and
on after they have been turned on
for a few minutes. What is
wrong?
Answer: The lights are flashing
because a circuit breaker for the
headlights is opening and closing.
The addition of the fog lights has
caused too much current flow
through, the headlamp wiring and
the circuit breaker is trying to pro-
tect the system.
The fix is easy. Add a relay that
supplies power to the fog lights
and connect the control circuit of
the relay to the low beam wiring.
The relay control circuit uses very
little current and all your lights
should work fine.

Take the time to put seat belt on correctly


By David Tobias
In the many years I've spent
teaching advanced driving, one of
the big surprises is that so many
people don't know how to wear a
seat belt, or what it's really for.
When I strap into a race car, I
get the belts done up as tightly as
possible. It's not just for crash
protection; it's to keep me firmly
behind the wheel in any violent
maneuver.
When I was a kid I remember
a friend's mom driving us home
without her seatbelt on. She was
driving a big station wagon with a
nice slippery bench seat. She
turned a corner a bit.sharply, and
began to slide across the car,
restrained only by the one hand
that was still desperately clutch-
ing the steering wheel. We wob-
bled into the parking lot and she
managed to get back in front of
the controls. After that she
became a committed seat belt
wearer.
A serious mistake, of course, is
not wearing a seat belt at all. This
seems to happen more often with
people who have airbag
equipped cars. Remember
airbags do not inflate in all colli-
sions, such as rollovers or rear
end impacts. Some cars have side

that you not only wear your seat

could save you from going a hard
