Internet 'chat room' used to
trade images, video
N United States, international agencies bust Internet
child porn ring, page 7A
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A Sebring resident has, been named
in an indictment of an international, Interuet-based
child pornography site. .
Paul Roy Peters, 19, is charged with distributing
visual depiction of minors engaging in sexually
explicit conduct.
Charges against him and.26 other defendants were
filed Monday by the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, and other
cooperating international authorities in the United
States, Canada, Australia and Great Britain.
The investigation was revealed Wednesday at a
news conference in Chicago. Peters, who was in his
fifth week of basic training at Lackland Air Force
Base in San Antonio, was discharged that day from
the service for fraudulent enlistment.
According to David Smith, chief of media relations
for the base, all new recruits must swear before enlist-
ment that they are not engaged in criminal activity.
The undercover investigation infiltrated a private
Internet "chat room" known as "Kiddypics &
Kiddyvids," which used WinMX software program to
allow users to engage in "peer-to-peer" file sharing.
Allegedly, users traded thousands of images of child
pornography worldwide, including streaming videos
of live molestation.
Often, users distributed files through "shared" fold-
ers on their computers, which makes it possible for
other users to view them.
On Feb. 2, an agent with Immnigrations and
Customs Enforcement entered the site under the user
name "tamnineiv6S2." and noticed that a user by the
name "Alexl007" had a number of file., available four
download.
Several of them were photographs of sexually
explicit material involving minors, according to an
affidavit by the agent. Two of those listed were digi-.
tal movies involving a 12-year-old, one of which was
allegedly discovered in prior child exploitation inves-
tigations.
The agent contacted "Alexl007" through a private
message session and he identified himself as"a 24-
year-old male from Florida. The agent identified her-
self as a 25-year-old female from Illinois.
Allegedly, "Alexl007" said his favorite age range
was 10-13 years old and he allegedl.i fantasizes about
picking up a 12-year-old and bringing her home.
Investigators tracked down the user's computer, at

Brush fire smells suspicious


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
SE BRING Firefighters and
their equipment were pulled off a
.smolderinn Lake Placid mruck,fire
Wednesday to respond to a brush
fire in Sebring's Sun 'N Lake
development.
Tim Elders, of the Florida
Department of Forestry, said
Wednesday the fire is being inves-
tigated as arson. It began about 11
a.m. in the middle of a thicket of,
%koods just east of Hill-Gustat
Middle'School.
"Hill-Gustat is perfectly out of
the picture." Sun 'N Lake North.
Fire Department Chief Dustin
Fitch said as he and his crew
watched the underbrush bum. "We
do have busses on standby just in
case the winds shift."
Fitch said 15 vehicles and about
25 personnel responded to the fire
where a south to southwest wind
moved the fire parallel to the
school and didn't pose a threat to
other structures in the area.
The Department of Forestry
deployed two bulldozers and put a
third "dozer" on standby.
"It looks impressive from the
road," Fitch said, as billows of

Andy Ellmore (left) peers into the cockpit of a Lola T-70 Mk 3B, a Chevrolet-powered car circa 1970.
Ellmore, a car builder, said this vehicle was ahead of its time boasting a 200-plus mph top speed. For
more stories about the 54th Annual Mobile 1 12 Hours of Sebring Race, see stories throughout today's
edition of the 'News-Sun.' Results will be printed in Sunday's newspaper following the Saturday event.


'It looks impressive from the road.

But it's doing what it's supposed to

do.'
DUSTIN FITCH, Sun 'N Lake North fire chief


vhile smoke reached into the blue
skies. "But it's just doing what it's
supposed to do,"
In November, the Department of
Forestr\ spent a few weeks cutting
a pair of 30 feet w ide fue breaks in
anticipation of such a fire.
"We cut a few fire breaks across
this exact lot," Elder said. "I'm not
sure if it's hit either of those yet."
The fire was contained within a
few hours. As of noon Thursday,
Elder said crews from the fire,
department and Forestry were
checking the area several times
throughout the day.
"We still have several hot spots
within the fire line," he said.
Elder said the recent muck, bay-
head, and brush fires are typical for
this drier time of the year.
"I don't know hoiw" CNN picked


up on this. but that's who was on
the phone when you came up,"
Elder said. explaining that a
reporter %was asking about the num-
ber of fires in the area. "This kind
of tire acti\ it is not out of the
normi. \ el. .
Another month without rain,
however, could shift: the fire situa-
tion in Highlands County from nor-
mal to abo\ e normal. Elder said.
Wednesdayvs fire at Sun 'N Lake
was contained to about 30 acres.
Because 'arson is suspected,
Elder said the Department of
Forestry is offering a $5,000
reward for information that leads to
an arrest and charges being filed.
The Arson Hotline is (800) 342-
5869, and those wishing to provide
a .tip.,.may, remain anonymous,

School board



tests positive



on drug testing

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
News-Sun
SEBRING- Members of the Highlands County School Board
were so impressed with the mandatory drug testing program,
presented to by them by Student Services Coordinator Rodney
Hollinger on Tuesday that they immediately agreed to provide an
appropriation to insure it starts at district high schools .iext
school year.
The program will target athletes, students in extracurricular
activities, those who drive cars on campus, who volunteer, or
who are volunteered by their parents, and those who show signs
of being under the influence while on campus.
The program is not punitive. Students testing positive would
be held from activities, or have privileges revoked, but also be
referred for counseling. Once a student stopped the drug use, and
tested negative, he or she would regain what they had given up.
At no time will police be involved.
The best consequence of the program, Hollinger said, is the
cover it provides students against peer pressure.
While The School Board of. Highlands County signaled its
strong support, it hopes the community, in a show of commit-
ment, will step up and help fund the program.
It is not anticipated to be very' expensive. For example,
Hollinger said testing at the largest high school, Sebring, would
cost well under $1,000 for one year. For more information or to
pledge support call Hollinger at student services 471-4758.

HIGHLANDS

in brief


FHP continues
investigation
in trooper
accident
LAKE PLACID The
Florida Highway Patrolman
who apparently attempted a
U-tumrn in front of a sod-
loaded semi remained in
good condition Thursday at
Lee Memorial Hospital in
Fort Meyers.
Joshua J. Zahller, 32, was
flown to the hospital Sunday
afternoon after his marked
patrol Camaro was struck by
the tractor trailer driven b.
Avon Park's Frank J. Hodo
Jr., 34.
Hodo suffered minor
injuries in the accident.
He told the News-Sun on
Sunday that the trooper and
he were both eastbound on
State Road 70 when Zahller
pulled off the road to the
right shoulder then attempt-
ed to turn around.
Hodo said he swerved
right to avoid the officer but
couldn't prevent an accident.
The Florida Highway
Patrol is still investigating
the accident, which occurred
at 4:50 p.m., a few miles
west of U.S. 27.
School board
will ask for

- b)} tfr j change in the
formation of state mandated
Early Learning Coalitions.
Originally every district
stood on its own. But in
2005 smaller counties were
forced into merging with
other counties.
Highlands County joined
forces with Charlotte,
DeSoto and Hardee counties.
That merger has not
worked in Highlands
County's favor. Its demo-
graphics don't align with
those of the other members
and issues are different.
The board will ask the
legislature to make mergers
voluntary, so Highlands
County can stand alone
again.

County whittles down list of


82 assistant administrators


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Highlands
County is at no loss to find a
suitable candidate to fill the
spot vacated by Tom Portz.
When a select committee
went into review applications
Thursday afternoon for County
Administrator Carl Cool, they
had 82 candidates for the assis-
tant county administrator job.
After Thursday's meeting,
Cool said the committee decid-
ed to eliminate all late and
incorrect applications. That
took out 16 people.
There's another meeting at 9
a.m., March 27, to select 10
candidates.
The selection committee
consists of Highlands
Hammock State Park Manager
Peter Anderson, former county
administrative assistant Charlie
Cullins, Sebring City
Administrator Bob Hoffman,

RC club



sets sail


at mall

By KEVIN J. SHUTr
News-Sun
SEBRING For some. sai l-
ing a boat is a calming escape
For others, it's the thnll of cap-
turing the cup in an e\citing!
regatta.
But, for the Sebring
Lakeshore Model Yacht Club
it's the affordabilitN of the
hobby that will grow its fleet.
"It's been a long time since
I've stood out here and did
this," Louise Fritz, of Sebring.
said Thursday morning as she
piloted one of several radio-
controlled-'boats on \\hat the
,-lub":'-h' dAbeqd' "L'akR&hor&'
Pond" a retentionpond south
of K-Mart's parking lot
About half of the club's eight
members brought a variety of
their wind-powered, radio fre-
quency-steered model boats for
a demonstration for Lakeshore
Mall's Paul A. Loy, general
manager.
"It doesn't pollute, it doesn't
do anything bad to the environ-
ment. It's great." Loy said, as
he stood on the shores watching
the sailboats tack port, then
starboard, as their owners
pushed them against the gentle
breeze.
John Egizi, the new club's
skipper, said the group mus-
tered for the inspection and
demonstration Thursday to win
support from Loy, who would
decide whether the club could
set sail there for weekly races.
Lakeshore Pond has more
surface area than the


Renfro, and Avon Park City
Manager C.B. Shirey.
Cool had Chairman Bob
Bullard sat in with him, both as
a non-voting members.
Several of the applicants
already work for county gov-
ernment: Veterans Service
Officer Joseph Dionne,
Emergency Management
Director Tim Eures, Facilities
Manager David Flowers (a for-
mer county commissioner),
County Engineer Ramon
Gavarrete, Office of
Management and Budget
Director Rick Helms, Deputy
Clerk of the Courts Bob
Jamison, Purchasing Director
Gerald "Jed" Secory, and Solid
Waste Management Director
Ken Wheeler.
Fred Carino, human
resources director, was not
privy to that meeting. As a
direct employee of the adminis-
trators, "I can't pick my own


boss," he said.
However, he was aware of
who had applied.
Approximately 50 percent of
the applicants were from out of
state, Carino said. Out of the 82
applications, 19 of them have
received associates degrees, 69
have bachelor's degrees, 40
have master's degrees, and
three have doctorates.
"They have several million
years of experience," he
quipped.
He also said that the assistant
county administrator job is a
high-energy job so the county
will probably have a good field
of candidates.
Cool has said Portz's back-
ground in finance was a big
.help to him, an ideas person.
Cool regularly bounced ideas
off him.
"He's not an assistant. He's a
partner," Cool said before Portz
retired.

KE' iN i SHUTT N ..S
John Egizi, or Sebring., launches a radio-controlled sailboat
Thursday morning at "Lakeshore Pond" during a demonstration for
the mall's general manager. The Sebring Lakeshore Model Yacht
Club, which is seeking more members, intends to hold weekly races
at Lakeshore Mall.


Tanglewood pond, where many
of the members had been sail-
ing their craft.
"I hear it's very addicting"
said Loy, who declined an offer
to take the helm but gave his
blessing to the club to hold
races. "And I'm afraid I'll
become addicted."
For a buy-in price of $250-
$300, potential skippers can get
a Soling or Fairwinds 900 -
entry level boats requiring
assembly.
"The only thing you have to
add after that is wind and bat-
teries," Egizi said, explaining.
that a properly constructed boat
is nearly-indestructible.


Sebring Lakeshore Model Yacht Club
The club will meet at 10 a.m. Thursday beginning April 6 to
race radio-controlled sailboats. The public is welcome to watch
and model yacht owners are encouraged to join and race.
The racing typically will last through 11:30 a.m. with two
major categories *- Advance Fleet and the B Fleet, for experi-
enced and novice boaters, respectively.
Annual membership dues is $15.
For more information, contact John Egizi, 655-4153.


The boats make way when a
breeze fills their sails. The bat-
teries power the radio con-
trollers that operate battery-
powered winches stored below
decks.
"It's very relaxing as long as
I'm not in a competition," Fritz
said. "I'm a day sailor. I just
like to go out and enjoy it and
come back in the evening."
For some, mostly the men-
folk according to the wives at
the pond, the racing can be
competitive.

Jules and his dog with creator Skip Herbert. keep guard over race
site.

Jules and his dog guard the house


By JACK HARRIS
News-Sun Correspondent
SEBRING-The dog won't
bite, won't even bark, but that's
OK with "Jules" his owner
because Jules is a robot of few,
er, actually no words.
Skip Herbert does all the
talking for the dog and Jules
and have been handling that
chore for about 15 years. That's
when Herbert, of West Palm
Beach, put together some old
pipe, cross-arm braces and
joints and other scrap to create
Jules and his dog. "Jules is part
of the International Brother-
hood of Electrical Workers No.
1191, Herbert joked.
Herbert is a retired Florida
Power and Light worker and
has been coming to the 12
Hours of Sebring since 1963.
"In fact, I've missed only the
.1965 iaee and that \\as because
PIha-s in'Ai Force training.
" He swd he and his group
have been right by the guard
house at the south side of the
driver-over bridge for 20 years.


"It's a great venue because we
have the race on this side, and
the human race on that side,"
pointing toward the race course
then the bridge approach.
Why did he start coming to
the race? "Some friends and I
from West Palm decided to
come over one year, and I've
been coming back because of
the international flavor a bit
of German here, French there,
with Italian and 'British'
English blending in."
Herbert said he bought an old
Century Village school bus and
converted it to an RV, complete
with hot water, shower, bed,
refrigerator and even a beer tap
on the outside. "I miss the old
days," he said, referring to
when the Green Park was wild,
and the motorcycles were
e\er\ here. W,'e used to wvatclt
them 'rake- Iidnni;g start" ad
-rt not to touch the flat p.nrt -

many would make it, but they
were crazy enough to try it."

Sexual predator moves



to Hammock Highlands


School bus stop
on same block
By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Parents in
Hammock. Highlands didn't
like the news they received
Wednesday.
A sexual predator has moved
into their area. According to the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, as many as 150 flyers
were distributed to homes both
in that community and to resi-
.dents on the other side of
Hammock Road in Golf
Hammock.
According to Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement records, 34-year-
old Carlos Michael Lee, also
known as Carlos Lee or Mike
Lee, is living at 3228 Lockman
Blvd.
Lee is a white male standing
5 feet 4 inches, weighing 144
pounds with brown hair and
green eyes. He has been con-
victed of sexual. battery by an
adult on a victim under 12 years
old, and sexual battery or coer-
cion of a child by,an adult.
According to detective Tom
Ouverson with the sheriff's
office Crime Scene
Investigations unit, there were
children living at his new
address but they are not there
anymore.
The house is on the same
street as a school bus stop, how-


ever Ouverson said Lee has no
restrictions on where he may
live, because he was not an
early conditional release from
)rison.
Lee served
seven years in
prison from
1: Aug. 27, 1998,,
to Nov. 22,
2005 and is
. on probation.
He has been
LEE in Sebring for a
couple of months and has
moved from Sparta Road to his
new address, Ouverson said.
As long as Lee is not within a
certain distance from a school
or similar building, he can live
where he chooses, Ouverson
said. By Florida law, a school
bus stop is not considered a
school.

Probation rules
Most convicted felons, when
released from prison or jail, are
put on probation. They are
often prohibited from contact
with drugs, drug users,
weapons, or any criminal activ-
ity. Sexual offenders and preda-
tors are restricted from contact
with children.
Ouverson said a judge can
choose to give a probation vio-
lAtor more probation or prison.
It differs with each case, but is
usually a 50-50 split.
On Feb. 28, Michael Paul'
Roberts, 24, of Zolfo Springs,
was charged with violating pro-

Four charged with marijuana


possession in county jail


By PHIL ATnlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING Four inmates
in the Highlands County Jail
were charged last weekend with
having marijuana inside a
detention facility.
They were all trustys, low-
security inmates, used to per-
form maintenance-and manual
labor duties at the county jail.
As a result, they all received
felony charges.
John L. Brown Jr., 36, of
Sebring; Marc Edward Hudson,
22, of Avon Park; Earl Bernard
Nelson, 32, of Avon Park; and
Justin Dewayne Sutton, 25, of
Sebring, have each been
charged with possession of con-
traband in a county jail, posses-
sion of cannabis and possession


of drug paraphernalia.
.Each one had bond set at
$2,000.
.According to arrest reports, a
support officer and a detention
deputy saw them smoking
something :.at 6:05 p.m.
Saturday in the Pod C recre-
ation yard in the jail. It
appeared, arrest reports said,
that they would take turns pass-
ing a cigarette-like item around
between them.
While they were doing this,
one of them would stand apart
from the group and serve as a
lookout at the window area of
the recreation yard. ,
The support officer alerted a
detention deputy and supervisor
and they went to the recreation

yard' to investigate. One of the
men x% as at the glass window to
the yard. The other three were
standing in a close group beside
a ventilation grate in the corer.'
When deputies searched the
grate, they found a hand-rolled
cigarette, reports said. They
also allegedly found a lighter in
Brown's hand, concealed with-
in a piece of paper towel.
A presumptive field test done
on the cigarette showed posi-
tive for cannabis, reports said.
Also,. reports said the grate
appeared to have black soot
marks on it from where the cig-
arette was shoved just before it
was discovered.
The cigarette weighed less
than one grarn. reports said.

16-year-old, He was sentenced
to four years in prison.

Parents worried
"It's scary," Marlene
Wellborn, one of the parents in
Hammock Highlands, said after
learning about Lee.
Up until now, many of the
residents felt comfortable with
being able to send kids out to
play or over to a friend's house
without worrying about their
safety.
She and other parents were
making copies of the flyers to
make sure every person in the
area knew about Lee.

Monitor bus stops
Roy Wright, transportation
coordinator for the School
Board of Highlands County,
said there are no requirements
by law for his office to do any-
thing different.
However, his staff checks the
FDLE Web site a minimum of
once per week. They print out
and post flyers of each sexual
predator and offender in each
bus compound.
"If there is something that
comes up, we make drivers
aware directly," Wright said.
The best thing parents can do
is be proactive and watch kids
at bus stops, if only for safety's
sake. They should also drill
their)kids on proper child lure
prevention.

AVON PARK What could
be better for a good old-fash-
ioned Main Street, than a good
old-fashioned Country Store,
Pete Zeegers, director of the
Avon Park Youth Academy
wants to know.
And what could be more use-
ful, he asked, than a store bene-
fiting troubled young men
working to turn their lives
around.
Just such a place has opened
at 1000 W. Main St., in the
Long Building.
It is stocked with homemade
apple and cherry pies, sugar,
peanut butter and chocolate
chip cookies, and a variety of
plants and custom-made furni-
ture,;all,baked or,crafted by the..
academy's students. ,,-,- .
Services .are available itoo.
Need an oil change, a wash and
wax for the car? The young
men are ready to help.
From custom-made bird


houses and bookcases, to tire
rotations and brake jobs, to
printing business cards or
posters, the students are eager
to please.
"It's not a Wal-Mart or Pier
1," Zeegers said. "It's to show
our kids how to market the
skills they're taught, and help
them feel good about them-
selves."
Prices vary from $30 for a
bird house or jewelry box, to
$250 for a custom-made enter-
tainment center.
Rotating tires costs $5. A
wash and wax costs $8, and you
provide the wax.
Any profit and all donations
will go back into the academy's
resident welfare fund.
That fund benefits young
men %%ho hate no family or
financial support. It. provides
them the means to buy toi-.

Lake Placid mayoral race


ELAINE LEVEY/News-Sun
Longtime residents of Avon Park (from left) Bill Hood, Peggy Caraberis and Sibyl Padelford, along with
others, chat about their growing up years on Sunday at the Depot Museum. The museum is open for
'chatting' from 1-3 p.m. every Sunday through April 9. Regular hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday.


Museum turns into 'chat room'


News-Sun
AVON PARK The official
name is the Avon Park Depot
Museum but on Sundays, the'
name changes to the "Avon
Park Chat Room."
And the name fits, as on
Sunday longtime Avon Park
residents gather to "chat" about
yesteryear. And visitors are
invited to just listen or even join
in.
Sibyl Padelford, one of the
longtimers and a board member
of the Historical Society of
Avon Park, came up with the
catchy name. And she was a
staunch supporter of the muse-
um opening on Sundays. "A lot
of folks have nothing to do
Sunday afternoons," she said.
The first "chat room" took
place March 12, with seven
longtimers swapping stories
about growing up in Avon Park.
Along with Padelford, they
included Bob Keller, Peggy
Caraberis, Bill Hood, Roland

Veterans can

get forms online
Veterans needing a copy of
their discharge papers, also
called DD 214, can now
request them online, from the
National Personnel Records
Center Web site at
www.vetrecs.archives.gov.
Joseph Dionne, director and
Veteran Services officer of
Highlands County, explained
that the veteran fills in the nec-
essary information on the
online form, submits it elec-
tronically over the Internet, but
must also print out the form,
sign it and either fax it or mail
it to the St. Louis office at:
NRPC Web, 9700 Page
eAvenue, St. Louis, MO 63132-
5100. The records center must
have a signature to complete
the process.
The electronically sent infor-
mation will expedite the
process, as it eliminates much
mail room time. This method
also helps to ensure that the
veteran fills in all pertinent
information needed by the
records center. It is possible to
obtain a DD 214 within a three-
week period.
Family members of a
deceased veteran (next of kin,
such as a spouse or child) can
also apply online for discharge
papers.

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID John
Holbrook will face Tom
Katsanis in the Town of Lake
Placid mayoral election on
Tuesday, April 4.
This is the first local mayoral
election for both men. It is also
the first mayoral election for the
town since Gary Nichols
defeated Clint Smith for the job
in 2002. That election ended a
45-year drought in the Lake
Placid arena in which no sitting
mayor was ever challenged in
an election.
Holbrook, who is the current
mayor, ascended to the post fol-
lowing the resignation of
Nichols. Holbrook was serving
as vice-mayor at the time.
Katsanis, a local retiree, was
the first candidate to qualify for
the race. He has a number of
years of top management expe-
rience in the health care field.
Incumbent councilmen Billy
Brantley and Charles Wilson
will return to town council
without facing an election. The
two men were the only candi-
dates to qualify for the open
council seats earlier this month.
Voters to decide who
has power over loans
In other election news, the
Lake Placid Town Council
voted Feb. 27 to approve and
adopt an ordinance to place a
voter referendum on the
upcoming ballot.
The referendum gives resi-
dents the option of deciding


whether or not to change the
Town Charter and give the
council authority to enter into
loans with a payback period of
longer than five years..
.Loans with longer than a
five-year payback are currently
required to be approved by a
referendum vote of the people.
Town attorney Bert J. Harris
III explained that the restriction
stems from a bond issuance
from the 1920s that was
.defaulted by the town. The
issue created massive legal
problems that went all the way
to the Florida Supreme Court.
The bond was not fully repaid
until the 1960s.
Council also gave Town
Clerk Arlene J. Tuck authority
to inspect the election
machines. The inspection,
which is open to the public, will


be held on Wednesday, March
29. The testing will be done at
the Supervisor of Elections
office, 580 S. Commerce Ave.,
Room 201A, Sebring.
Council also gave a nod of
support to a recommendation
by Tuck to forgo early voting
for this election. Tuck
explained that if the town
offered early election they
would have to pay for a polster
from Campbell's office to oper-
ate the machine at Town Hall
for 15 days prior to the election.
The decision to throw out
early voting this go-round will
not impact absentee voting. The
Lake Placid Canvassing Board
of Tuck and Councilmen Debra
Worley and Jim Waller will
meet at 6 p.m. the evening of
the election in Sebring to count
the absentee votes.

U.S., international agencies


bust Internet child porn ring


WASHINGTON, D.C. -An
investigation has charged 27
people in four countries with
distributing child pornography.
The case involves creators
and users of "Kiddypics &
Kiddyvids," an Internet child
pornography site.
Thirteen defendants in nine
U.S. Judicial Districts -
Florida, Arizona, Illinois,
Hawaii, Michigan, Nevada,
New York, and Tennessee -
and in state court in North
Carolina, face charges of pos-
session, receipt, distribution
and manufacture of child
pornography.
One defendant lived in
Sebring.
Another 14 defendants in
other countries nine in
Canada, three in Australia and
two in Great Britain have or
will face similar charges.
The initial indictment was
handed down in the U.S.
District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois. At a news
conference Wednesday in
Chicago, Attorney General
Alberto R. Gonzales, Assistant
Secretary for U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement Julie
L. Myers, and Deputy Chief of
the Toronto Police Service Tony
Warr revealed details of the
investigation.
In Chicago, three defendants
- Brian A. Annoreno, .of
Bartlett, IlL; Gregory J.
Sweezer, of Aurora, Ill.; and


Lisa A. Winebrenner, of
Osceola, Iowa were charged
in a seven-count indictment
with. conspiracy to possess,
receive, solicit and distribute
child pornography.
Allegedly, they conspired
with each other and others to
trade images of child pornogra-
phy from at least April 2005
through March 10, 2006.
A fourth defendant was
charged separately in a related
indictment.
"This international under-
cover investigation revealed an
insidious network that engaged
in worldwide trafficking in
child pornography, including
live molestation of children
transmitted over the Internet,"
Gonzales said.
The investigation identified
seven child victims of sexual
molestation. One of the 27 '
defendants is a fugitive. Four of
the defendants are alleged
molesters.
One allegation is that partici-
pants used minors to produce
child pornography then made it
available to others, including
streaming video exchanged
with private online instant mes-
senger services.
"Molestation 'on demand'
and an ever-younger and more
defenseless group. of child vic-
tims are two of the most dis-
turbing trends (Immigration
and Customs) investigators see


when they infiltrate child
pornography rings," Myers
said. "This case had both."
For example, last year,
Annoreno with screen name
"Acidbumrn" allegedly pro-
duced live streaming video of
himself sexually molesting an
infant.
In April 2005, a user named
"Big_daddy619" allegedly pro-
duced live streaming videos of
himself sexually molesting four
children under the age of 12,
and transmitted the images live,
via the Internet, to other chat
room members, including
Annoreno.
According to the Chicago
indictment, a "host" and vari-
ous "administrators" main-
tained the chat room, estab-
lished rules for participants and
determined who participated.
Allegedly, they used security
measures to conceal their activ-
ities from law enforcement.
This included screening people,
removing those suspected of
being with law enforcement,
prohibiting users from asking
personal identifying informa-
tion from each other, and using
encryption and data destruction
software on pornography files.
The indictment further
alleges that Winebrenner used a
software program to destroy
evidence on her computer, and
on March 10, allegedly advised
others to do the same.


PORN
Continued from 1A

a home near U.S. 27 and State
Road 66.
On March 6, Highlands
County sheriff's deputies
served a federal search warrant,
found and seized two comput-
ers, an external hard drive, 200
media storage disks, and books
and magazines depicting sexual


acts.
A witness at the address said
Peters installed the WinMX
software in the living room
computer and downloaded
music and movies. Allegedly,
he wiped it clean before leaving
for the military.
Since then, it hadn't worked
properly, so neither she nor the
owner of the residence had used
it.
When questioned under
Miranda rights, Peters allegedly


said he used the computer for
four hours per day to share
child pornography from and
with other users.
He also said the owner of the
residence didn't use computers
and that the other resident only
used the computer to download
music.
When investigators checked
the computer, they allegedly
found the same images and
movies that the agent had
downloaded.

No arrests yet, but cash,


cards stolen at Raceway


SunTrust Bank seems fine after cleaning


By PHIL ATTINGER
News-Sun
SEBRING A week after
an incident that had bank
employees feeling sick, every-
one seems to be fine at the Avon
Park SunTrust branch.
Susie Findell, spokesperson
for the bank, said they never
found out what caused the
strange smell on Friday, March
10, that made tellers feel nau-
seous, and caused some skin
irritation, waters, ees" and
dizziness. .
After investigation by the
Avon Park police and fire
Departments, members of the


Highlands County Hazardous
Materials Team went into the
building in firefighters' bunker
gear and took air samples. All
ten of the tests they ran showed
up negative for toxic or irritat-
ing compounds.
Findell said the bank had a
cleaning crew come in and
shampoo the carpets and clear
out the air-conditioning duct-
work.
After that, they had an envi-
ronmental cre%\ come in and
check the building again.
"So far, there's been noth-
ing," Findell said.
The building itself was first


opened in 1983, she said. Like
many buildings in Highlands
County, it has survived several-
tropical storms and a number of
hurricanes over the last two
years.
Findell regrets any.inconven-
ience last Friday's incident
made for customers.
Fortunately, she said, the bank
has several branches in
Highlands County, automatic.
teller machines .and Internee
banking for people to carry out
transactions.
As far as she knows, they
didn't lose any business.


By PHIL ATTlNGER
News-Sun
SEBRING On the first
day of this year's 12 Hours of
Sebring events, Highlands
County sheriff's deputies have
had no arrests.
They did, however, have
theft.
In three separate incidents,
someone or several separate
people broke into three race
team trailers in the Paddock
area of Sebring International
Raceway and stole cash and
credit cards.
Deputies and victims believe
the thefts occurred at approxi-
mately 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
A Key West man reported


someone entered his Feather
Light race trailer and took
$6,000 in cash and credit cards.
A couple from Nebraska
reported theft of $3,230 total
cash and credit cards from their
United Express race trailer.
U Two men from North
Carolina reported theft of a total
$1,600 and credit cards stolen
from their Freightliner semi-
trailer.
Deputies do have a lead.
Video tapes show a white male
using some of the stolen credit
cards at various businesses on
U.S. 27, such as Publih
Supermarkets, Winn-Dixie and
Walgreen's in Avon Park, as
well as Sears in Lake Wales.


Items purchased at the Winn-
Dixie were various gift cards,
according to Deputy Sheriff J.P.
Fane.
To cut down on theft and
losses at the raceway, Fane rec-
ommends visitors not bring
anything they can't afford to
lose, especially in regard to
large amounts of cash, or keep
it secured at all times.
They should also secure any
loose items, such as camping
and recreation equipment or
food and coolers, when not in
use or in their sight.
Anyone with information
should call the sheriff's office
at 402-7200 or Fane's office at
402-7335.

Local resident hauled headlights for Ferrari as a teen


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It was in 1970
when Sebring Hall of fame
driver and three-time 12 Hour
winner Mario Andretti drove
"like a man possessed" to pass
actor and racer Steve
McQueen's Porsche literally
within the sight of the start/fin-
ish line to score his first win
and add another Sebring victory
to the tally sheet of the prancing
horse.
However, the result may
have been quite different had it
not been for someone who lived
in south Florida, but has
become a community leader
here.
Randy Leonard is.the opera-
tions manager at the Alan Jay
Automotive Network. But in
1970 he was working in the
parts department at Orange
Motors of Coral Gables. It was


the south Florida dealership that
handled such makes as
Maserati, Porsche, MG, Jaguar,
Triumph and Ferrari.
"One of my best friends.
worked for Import Motor Parts,,
which is a big importer for all
kinds of non-factory parts and
he asked me how would I like to
go to Sebring for the 12
Hours?" Leonard said.
Already a fan of imported
cars and familiar with the
Sebring sports car endurance
classic, he jumped at the
chance.
"I knew Mario Andretti was
'going to be there and there
would be a lot of really great
new cars like the 917 Porsche
so I was really pumped up
about it," he said.
The key was that the pair had
to deliver headlights for the
Ferrari team. In some way they,
had come up short on that
equipment, which was ever so
necessar\ if the 512s were to go
racing into. the night on the


notoriously dark airport circuit.
So Leonard and his friend
loaded his 1969 Mustang 302
with every suitable Cibie head-
light they could get in the
trunk and headed for Sebring.
But in the early '70's the trip
was not as easy as it is today.
"It was just two lanes at that
time and between Fort
Lauderdale and South Bay they
used to call it 'Death Valley',"
he said. "It was real dangerous
at that time. Most of it was still
swampland and there were a lot
of head-on accidents out there.
Even though I was 18, my mom
didn't want us to go."
But Leonard and his friend
made the trip without incident.
Once they were at Sebring, they
met team representatives at the
Kenilworth Lodge, gave them
the headlamps and got creden-
tials that allowed them access to
virtually anyplace on the race-


way including the pits.
"I had the opportunity to
meet Mario Andretti at that time
and it was really something,"
Leonard said.
Andretti had been one of
Leonard's heros for a long time.
"I mean, he could drive any-
thing stock cars, formula
5000s, sprint cars he could
get in just about anything and
make it go fast," Leonard said.
Andretti didn't disappoint, in
fact, he made one of the great-
est drives in endurance racing
history.
After first building a tremen-
dous lead in his Ferrari 512S,
his day appeared to be over.
when the .car's transmission
failed, or so it seemed. The
Ferrari team decided to put
Andretti in the remaining
Ferrari 512S, which had been
driven by Ignazio Giunti and
Nino Vaccarella.
Andretti responded with
record laps in the Sebring dark-
ness, passing Revson in the


final seconds to win the
thrilling race, despite having to
make a fuel stop with just two
laps remaining.
Leonard was on the wall as
the clock ticked down and the
cars clicked off the laps,
Andretti shortening the gap
with each go 'round.
"We actually were standing
there on the wall and I kept
thinking 'There's no way he can
make it,' but he did. How could
it have turned out any better?
We were a guest of the Ferrari
team and to have a little piece of
that action, it was a dream. If
you were going to be in a pit
.that weekend, that was the one
to be in," he said.
'Leonard also had an opportu-
nity to experience. many of the
facets of the airport road course
-including Green Park.
"That was a real eye opener.
We camped out there that night
and froze our tails off it was so
cold," he remembered.
But the most indelible mem-
ories for Leonard came from
the Paddock where he got to see
the sights, sounds and even
smells of the cars preparing to
! run for the once-around-the-
clock classic.
"It had a lot more interna-
tional flavor to it then. We had a
chance to walk through the pits
and they'd be speaking French
or German and you'd wonder
what they were saying and
wishing you'd have been able
to understand them." he said.,
"And I'll never forget the Alfa-
Romeos and the aroma they had
from burning castor oil'."
Like many of the fans in" the
paddock, Leonard 'had the
opportunity to meet some lumi-
naries including David Hobbs.
He was driving that year but is
now known to many as a motor-
sports commentator.
Leonard continued to come
to the 12 Hours of Sebring and
never thought he'd move to the
community until 1996, when he
relocated from Miami to help
take care of family matters.
"My dad goi real sick and ni-
mom asked if I could mo\e
back to be closer and


because I was single I said
'OK', "he said.
Leonard had known the
Wildstein family for many
years and as it turned out, the
timing was fortuitous.
"They had just bought the
dealership up here, so I inter-
viewed for a job and got it,"'
Leonard said.


It was a full circle of sorts for
Leonard, whose grandfather
William Leonard was the first
postmaster for Highlands
County'
"My father used to tell me he
remembered riding on the fend-
er of a Model-T and riding
though the swamp, delivering
mail to Hicoria," he said.


But true to form, the patri-
arch Leonard didn't just deliver,
mail, he had an auto repair shop
just off the Circle. Later, he
packed up the family and
moved to south Florida.
"Leonard, a dyed-in-the-wool
race fan, can be seen at the 12
Hours each year.

'Land Cruisin' Party Barge' sets up camp


By JACK HARRIS
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING -7 SpongeBob
SquarePants and the "Land
Cruisin' Party Barge" are
almost ready for the big race,
thanks to "President" Jeff
Elliston and Chuck Anderson
and some 15 of their friends.
The group has been watching
the 12 Hours of Sebring at the
Fangio Chicane for more than
25 years, and they were in the
process of setting up the Party
Barge and other facilities on
Wednesday, the first day specta-
tors were allowed in the
Sebring International.
Raceway's Green Park.
They had been waiting since
March 4 at the designated
camping area near the raceway
entrance, according to the self-
appointed "President Jeff," as
he likes to be known.
Most of the group have been
friends since high school days
in Tampa but now meet here
from Bradenton, St. Petersburg,
Naples, Spring Hill, West Palm
Beach, and other Florida towns.
One comes down from Illinois.
Anderson, a photographer
from West Palm Beach, is here
to cover the Vintage support
races for a magazine in
California. On Wednesday,
however, one of his duties was
to make sure the pet cardboard
pig and cow were put out to
pasture in front of the Party
Barge where they could occa-

sionally take a peek at a Ferrari,
Audi, Porsche or other racer

The Party Barge really, is a

which sits SpongeBob
SquarePants, and the roof pro-
vides a living room with,

12 Hours of Sebring for more than 25 years.


furniture. "We even have hot
and cold running water, a full
shower, and a new stereo sys-.
tem."
The group has also just pur-
chased a used school bus and is
constructing a camp behind the
Barge, surrounded by their var-
ious RVs. "We even have a pool
table," Anderson said.. The
group also cooks breakfast and
dinner for the better part of two
weeks.
President Jeff said, "We've
progressed from living in the
back of a truck with Coleman
lanterns and no running water
to this," gesturing toward the
circle of RVs and the Barge. "It
takes us a day or two to put
things together like we want it,"
he said. "We have 15 this time
but our peak was 25 several
years ago and that included
spouses and girl friends."
As President Jeff was telling
a guest about the amenities, the
sound system blasted a rock and
roll tune across the gathering,
prompting him to say, "Our


amplifier blew out last year so
we come back with three of
them and new speakers." Asked
if it were possible that the group
would think of not having a
sound system, he reeled back in
pseudo horror, "Oh, no, no.
There's no such thing as being
silent here."
Just behind the Barge is a
bench wide enough for two but
has a unique back the dam-
aged rear end of a Porsche that
ran in the Race several years
ago. "It came about as a result
of a German team's misfor-
tune," President Jeff explained.
"The team put a spare on the
car and after the Race, gave us
this one." It even has the tail
pipes attached. "Joey Hakes,
who works for a boat factory in
Bradenton and knows plastics,
came up with the idea of mak-
ing the bench. His wife did the
upholstering and they brought it
to the Race a couple of years
ago as a surprise for the rest of
us."
The president said the group
has been at the Chicane area for
years along with several other
veteran spectators. "We're first,
our next-door neighbor to our
right are the Mud Sharks, and
next to them is Dodge City."
None of the Barge group
likes the Chicane's present
form. "We used to have an
excellent view of the center of


the Chicane. It used to be a nice
sharp right, then a sharp left.
Now, the cars don't even shift
gears, whipping toward Turn
10."
President Jeff said he was 17
when he first came to Sebring.


He and Anderson expressed
surprise when told that only 35
,cars are scheduled to start the
Race, but the President looked
to the bright side. "That will
give us time to have a beer
between each lap."

traditions
When I found out my
birthfamily's origins are
Irish, I was not instantly
anointed with the history of
the Irish people, even
though I've always felt an
affinity for anything Irish.
After all, as the saying goes,
"Everyone's Irish on St.
Patrick's Day." I decided
this is the year I would
explore some of that Irish
history. There are excellent
resources on the Internet:
humboldtl.com/-history/lexi
so/ and
//en. wikipedia. org/wiki/Irish
_potatofamine.
In most of my research, I
found that celebrating St.
Patrick's Day is an
American tradition, much
more than in Ireland.
Actually, it is a holy day in
Ireland, so the pubs and
government are closed, thus,
no green beer or parades
like here in the States.
A really fun Web site is
marvelicious.com/stpatrick.
html. There is a streamer
that seems like pixie dust as
you move the mouse quick-
ly over the.page. Some of
the information found there
conflicts with information I
found elsewhere. In other
words, watch out for "blar-
ney." Legend has it that a
witch granted a king the gift
of persuasive speech, but he
had to kiss the Blarney
Stone to receive it.
The flag of the Republic
of Ireland is a tricolor:
Grepn, white and orange,
patterned after the French
flag adopted after their
Revolution. See that at
enchantedlearning.com/euro
pe/ireland/flag.shtml and
nt..n iipedtia.cr y,'n ik/ ./Fla .
o treland. The green is for
- nati\e Irish (Nationaist -
mostly Roman Catholic).
orange for British (Unionist)
supporters of William of
Orange (William ll, a
Protestant, who was of
William and Mary history),
and white to represent the
peace between the two cul-
tures. The British Union
Jack is the official flag of
Northern Ireland.
The "wearing of the
green" was banned about
the time of the American
War for.Independence
(1776), as the color green
had become the contentious
symbol of nationalist inde-
pendence and remains so
today. However, American
tradition says you get'
pinched for not wearing the
color green on St. Patty's
Day.
In the 1906 Olympics,
winner of the long jump -
Irishman Peter O'Connor,
had hoisted the "Green
Flag" instead of the British
Union Jack. At
flagspot.net/flags/ie.html#hi
s, you will find a cocktail
recipe for the Irish tricolor,
to be poured very slowly
down a spoon so as not to
mix the colors.
The basics of the Belfast
or Good Friday Agreement
of 1998 can be found at
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belfas
tAgreement. The Web site
of Ireland's government is

Car club gains



speed with



enthusiasts

By KEVIN J. SHUTT
News-Sun
LAKE PLACID
.With a complement of American sports cars ranging
from a 1965 convertible to a 2006 sport coupe
picked up from the dealership just days before, the
Heartland Corvettes Club convoyed from Sebnng
to Lake Placid during its monthly cruise and membership
meeting.
The fledgling club has grown from five members at its
inception in November to 30 by March 5, when the enthusi-
asts convened at Platters Restaurant on the circle in Lake
Placid.
"I think it's a really neat thing when you get a bunch of

these cars down here," said John Meyerhoff, a Lake Placid
resident formerly of New York who's enjoying his first year of
retirement.
Meyerhoff owns three Corvettes but only brought one to
Highlands County for the winter.
"It's a real collector's piece so I only drive it to shows and
meetings," he said of his 1996 Grand Sport convertible, the
last of the fourth generation "C4" line of which only 190 were
made.
At Platters, a stuffed skunk plush toy stood watch over the
Grand Sport's hood. Meyerhoff explained that Corvettes with
the racing stripe paint jobs down the center are affectionately
referred to as skunks.
"That was the smartest thing I ever did," he said, explaining
that having his Corvette here eventually put him in touch with
the club and new friends.
Ed Robson, who was elected vice president in March, said
Heartland Corvettes also did a U-turn on his attitude.
"I didn't have anything to do, I was ready to go home," he
said, explaining that he was bored here.
Whether it's cruising to a Sonic Drive-in or putting their
cars on display at the Relay for Life fund-raiser in Lake
Placid, the Corvette enthusiasts enjoy passing time talking
about the original American sports car.
"Sports cars only seat two people," John Brown, owner of a
burgundy 2003 convertible, said. "Muscle cars seat four peo-
ple."
Brown said the Ford Mustang.definitely falls under the lat-
ter category. He calls the Corvette line the "only" American
sports car but acknowledged that the two-seater Dodge Viper
falls into the same category.
Brown's Corvette is his third of three and is Chevrolet's
50th anniversary edition of the model line. Previously, he
owned a .1993 (40th anniversary edition). His first was a 1975
model, a college promise to a buddy which was brought to
fruition by peer pressure.
"My buddy and I said we were going to get Corvettes when
we graduated," Brown said, explaining that neither immedi-
ately came through on that commitment. "One day, I heard a
door slam and I just knew ... you can recognize that sound ... I
just knew that Craig got a Corvette."
Since then, Brown said he hasn't gone a year without own-
ing the instant-classic car selling one to buy the next.
Ernie Lintermoot, who owns '77, '89 and '02 models,
couldn't wait for college to get his first Corvette. Lintermoot,
66, of Avon Park, has been driving Corvettes since he was 16
years old.
"I've never been without one," Lintermoot said.
His first was a black 1959 convertible.
"I blew the engine up I don't know how many times,"
Lintermoot said of that first Corvette. "I ended up selling it."
After parking their cars two-deep in an adjacent field, the
Heartland Corvettes members filed into Platter's where they
discussed club business, ate a late lunch, and, well, talked
Corvettes.


Ernie Lintermoot's 2002 convertible sports a $500 'stalker' kit and a 24-carat leaf pinstripe that he spent 12
hours applying. The horses on the hood, he said, were to distract judges during shows because his model's
hood includes the wheel wells, exposing more road grime than the typical Corvette.


Heartland Corvettes Club members enjoy lunch and conversation about their cars at Platters Restaurant in
Lake Placid. The club meets monthly on the first Sunday.

Need to move any mountains?
thng woldYt


"I tell you the truth, if you
have faith as small as a mustard
seed, you can say to this moun-
tain, 'Move from here to there'
and it will move. Nothing will
be impossible for you,"
(Matthew 17:20).
If you will read the context of
Matthew 17 you will see where
the disciples of Jesus had failed
in their attempt to heal a young
boy (Matthew 17:14-19) and
when Jesus healed him they
were perplexed as to why they
had been unable to do so. Jesus'
response includes a very famil-
iar statement to us concerning
faith that can move mountains.
Let's examine what it takes to
have "mountain moving" faith.
n Motivation is needed.
Many people simply lack the
motivation needed to live a vic-
torious life. Jesus tells us in
Mark 11:24, "Therefore I say
unto you, What things soever ye
desire, when ye pray, believe
that ye receive them, and ye
shall have them." Jesus is com-


bining prayer and
motivation "what
ever you desire (or
are motivated to 4
obtain) pray for."
Christians are to be- MI *f
self-motivated indi-
viduals. What is the
motivation? God's
love and grace
should motivate us VER
(John 3:16; Roman SPn
5:8; Ephesians 2:8-
9). The law says "Do VIT
and thou shalt live" -
but grace says, "Live Verlon
and thou shalt do." -
Appreciation of
God's grace motivated a poor
widow to give her last "dime"
to the cause of Christ, it moved
Paul to preach Jesus at all costs
and it will motivate you and I to
move any mountain in our life
with the help of God.
n Obedience is needed.
Obedience is not a very popular
concept in today's "be your
own person and do you own


L(


A1

C


S thing" world. Yet,
Jesus "humbled him-
) self and became obe-
dient unto death, even
the death of the cross
(Philippians 2:8).
When we learn the
blessings of obedi-,
ence to God we will
quickly see the
DN S mountains of trial,
IUAL trouble and testing
being moved. Jesus
MIN assured us of this
truth ... all things
7arrell are possible to him
"- that believes" (Mark
9:23).
n Vision is needed. "Where
there is no vision, the people
perish" (Proverbs 29:18).
Webster defines "visualize" as
"to form a mental image of
something not present to sight."
God's greatest servants have
always had the vision to team
up with God to move the moun-
tains in their way. Think of
Noah visualizing both the ark


and the rain. Think of the
mountain Abraham had to visu-
alize of taking the life of his
own dear son. Yet, through faith
they visualized the victory -
that same vision has been jnade
possible for us through Jesus.
n Endurance is needed. In
reference to Abraham the writer
of Hebrews penned these
words, "After he patiently
endured, he obtained the prom-
ise" (6:15). Later, that same
writer tells us all to "run with
endurance the race that is set
before us" (12:2). In order to
endure we must keep our eyes
clearly focused on the goal -
heaven. And by drawing from
the power of Jesus (Philippians
4:13) we can endure and move
any mountains that stand in our
way.

at Lake Placid Church of
Christ. He can be reached at

Fransiscan Friar directs play


LAKE PLACID What is
the Lenten Mystery Play?
"The Way of the Cross" is a
dramatic multimedia presenta-
tion of the Passion and Dpath of
the Lord.
It is offered during the
Lenten season in church sanctu-
aries and a living mediation of
the Stations of the Cross. It is.
written and directed by Father
Francis Pompei, a Franciscan
Friar from Holy Name Province
and Team member of St.
Francis Inn soup kitchen,
Philadelphia.
The Mystery Players are


made up -of 14 teenagers and
four adults. The performances
.will be in the tradition of the
medieval Mystery Plays which
were frequently sponsored by
Franciscans, who advocate pop-'
ularizing Scriptural events.
"The Way of the Cross" calls
for no speaking parts. Through
the use of special lighting,
inspirational music, drama and
soul-searching meditations, a.
person is able to get in touch
with themselves: their good-
ness, struggles and their sins.
Then, in a very unique way, it
becomes a prayerful vehicle for


the Lord's spirit to forgive, heal
and renew. It is the .kind of
event that one can experience
over and over again and always
walk away with something new
each time.
. The presentation will be at
7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 26, at
St. James Church, which is at
3380 Placid view Drive.
No reservations are required
and there will be no admission
charge. There will be a love
offering received.

information, call 465-3215 or

Show has something for everyone


LAKE PLACID An
amazing array of beautifully
decorated tables greeted guests
at a luncheon and fashion show
.at First Presbyterian Church,
March 4.
The theme and purpose of the
event was to raise funds to sup-
port -the Jubilee Birthday
Missionary Program of the
Associate Reformed
Presbyterian denomination.
Since ."Birthday" was the
reason for the show, 24 women
of the church were asked to
each decorate a table for eight
as they would for a birthday
party at home. Each hostess
was to bring her own table serv-
ice from the cloth to the cen-
terpiece, for a specific month of
the year. Two tables were desig-
nated to celebrate each month.
The hostesses also were to sell
the tickets for their table. The
ticket sales went so quickly,
that an "un-birthday" table was


set up to accommodate the
demand.
Hostesses were Shirley
Dowling, Debbie McCullough,
Sandy White, Helen Anstine,
Dolly Breig, Debbie
Bloemsma, Thelma Rhoades,
Dot Bates, Patsy Peters, Mary
Wierda, Barbara Scott, Kym
Smoak, Gayle Badgley, Evelyn
Lewis, Joyce Watters, Alvenia
Rowe, Cheron Piper, Anne
Marie Wheeler, Jeannie
Snively, Mary Rucker, Fran
Inghram, Jean Willis, Bonnie
Schoenfeld, Judy Dyer and
Edna Morris. The un-birthday
table was hosted by Nancy
Schild.
The models were families
within the church. Sandy.
Mathews carried the commen-
tary off in her usual fine style,
filling in with stories gleaned as
she went with the girls (and
gentlemen) to pick out their
garments. The stores graciously


supplying the outfits were Lake
Placid Feed and Western Wear,
Tropical Island' Wear, and
Natalie's, all in Lake Placid,
Miller's in Avon 'Park, and
Tosheba's just off the Circle in
Sebring.
With the .wide variety of
sizes and tastes, the showing
truly presented something for
everyone.
Donna Mingus and Diane
Creel assisted with buttons and
zippers in the dressing room.
Doris Burdick, well known for
her. piano styling, played
throughout the show. Pam
Severance sang two solos. She
was also joined by Judy Dyer in
singing a duet. The music was
well received.
The luncheon was catered
and served by Hartzell's. Jean
Parrish, Ways and Means
Chairman for the ARP
Women's Ministries this year,
was chairman.

Koopman ponders St. Patrick's Day


By RIC LIUENBERG
News-Sun correspondent
LAKE PLACID
Preparing corned beef and
cabbage for her friends,
Terri Koopman pondered
a fresh understanding of what
Maewyn Succat means to the
Irish, even after almost 18 cen-
turies have come and gone
since Succat's birth in England,
since his name-change at
Christian priesthood investi-
ture, when he became the name
we recognize today Patrick,
or "Patricus" in the powerful
Roman Church of the fourth
century.
Dicing carrots and potatoes,
Koopman pondered her
November visit to Ireland's
Fullam fields, her late paternal
grandfather's land before the


River Liffey, 1890, flood that
swept away his and his four
brothers' livelihood and forced
them to leave their homeland
and emigrate to the United
States of America.
She remembered
November's cool, sunny
weather as she, her sister, and
their cousins strolled along the
Liffey, winding out of view on
its way through Dublin and on
to Dublin Bay and the Irish
Sea.
"We strolled along the river
bank and wondered if Papa
Fullam had walked here before
us. Everything was so green
and lovely. We saw the sham-
rocks along the river bank and
picked a few, which are care-
fully pressed. For me, sham-
rocks have always been a


strong Irish symbol."
As the group walked on,
they past an old thatched cot-
tage, its roof gone, but its stur-
dy walls still standing. Pausing
against the sweeping, green
backdrop of the Irish country-
side, they reminisced of their
Irish heritage.
"We talked a lot about Papa,
as he lived with us. Our memo-
ry was of a silver-haired, soft-
spoken, kind and gentle man
with a marvelous brogue, who
talked a lot about St. Patrick,"
Koopman remembered her
grandfather, who passed away
when Koopman was 10 years
old.
According to their grandfa-
ther, John Patrick Fullam, and
Irfsh church historians, when
Succat was 16, a band of


pirates kidnapped him and sold
the boy into Irish slavery.
Assigned to shepherding his
owner's sheep, Succat sought
comfort in God, whom Succat
believed allowed him to escape
slavery for the northern coast
of France, where he found a
home at a monastery, eventual-
ly received his new name, and
began to believe that God
wanted him to return to Ireland
not as a slave but as a mission-
ary set out to replace pagan
gods with the worship of the
one, true God.
The former shepherd -
now, the 60-year-old Christian
missionary knew precisely
Nature's metaphor the sham-
rock offered, its trilogy of
small, green cloverleaves a
perfect symbol of the Trinity
- Father, Son, and Holy
Spirit.
In the Christian history tra-
dition, Patrick was arrested a
lot, escaped a lot, and contin-
ued traveling through Ireland
sowing faithful seeds that
became schools and churches
as his Irish pagans saw the
benefit of changing deities.
Whether or not Patrick actu-
ally drove pagan snakes out of
Ireland remains unfounded, but
he did live to be 90 years old,
completing 30 years of
Christian ministry. When he'
died on March 17, 461, his
name and the date went onto
the church calendar in the box
for that day St. Patrick's
Day.
On March 17, 1737, in
Boston, Mass., Bay Plymouth
Colony members celebrated for
the first time the centuries, old
feast of corned bread and cab-
bage.
Coming is a meat preserva-
tion method used widely in
Ireland befo.rei modern refriger-
aiirni cjme long.

The Fullam home in Clongorey still stands inviting.


Catching the heady savor
from the soupy broth simmer-
ing the round of beef,
Koopman thought of how this
recent visit flavored this spe-
cial Christian day.
"When the River Liffey
flooded and destroyed the pota-
to fields, the family cut peat
and sold it for fuel." She
paused. "Eventually, the land-
lord, who understood, died and
his brother inherited the prop-
erty. The brother demanded the
back rent, and my grandfa-
ther's family was evicted, driv-
en away with only the clothes


on their backs."
Of course, the sisters and
cousins braved the cold Irish
rain and visited the family
stones in the cemetery. As she
scooped the roast out of the
broth, Koopman turned and
said, "The feeling of connec-
tion to those who came before
us was especially strong. We
walked over the ground and
stood at the Celtic crosses that
mark the resting places of
Fullams of generations ago."
She paused again. "I have no
words to communicate what it
felt like."


Naas is in County Kildare, about 30 miles from Dublin. The village
is small. There is a lot of pasture land for sheep and cattle.

'You shouldn't feel thE


Proverbs 18:14
(NKJV) "The


SNAPSHOTS OF


spirit of a man
will sustain him in
sickness, but who
can bear a broken
spirit?"
In my last
attempts at wisdom I touched
on the first of two insights that
have occurred to me as the
years have gone by. That was
that I was not universally loved;
in fact some people didn't like
me at all: some with good rea-
son, I'm sure; others just
because of indefinable bad
vibes between us. I have come
to terms with the latter and will
strive to amend the former if I
know about it.
The second insight, per-
ceived more recently, is that the
admonition, "You shouldn't
feel that way," is about the


h Hannum
h Hannum


dumbest thing one
person can say to
another.
The way a per-
son feels is a com-
plex phenomenon
compounded out
of circumstances,


chemistry, past human experi-
ences and current state of phys-
ical and psychological health,
among other things unique and
private to the individual.
As I think back, I have said
those or similar words to
numerous people and they kept
right on "feeling that way."
Why has it taken me so long to
wise up? Well, I'm no Einstein.
As another put it, "I'm just
slow, not stupid."
This is not a new problem
and it makes you wonder why
so much time is wasted, not just
by limited intellectuals such as


I, but the powerful and influen-
tial. Listen to the political
debates. Have you ever heard a
person on one side say to his
adversary, "Hey, I never saw it
that way, by golly you're
right!"? No and you never will.
We should all have caught
onto this much sooner from
something we noticed back in
the first book of the Bible.
When God said to Cain, "If
you'd just change.your attitude,
you'd be fine!" (Genesis 4:6-7,
my translation). He respected
the principle that he'd made us
creatures of free will. And
although he alone could have
forced a man to change the way
he felt, he refrained. He set our
pattern by limiting himself to
doing what he can with circum-
stances and giving people a
chance to react positively ... or
not.


it way'

I think all of this has special-
applicability in dealing with
people suffering from depres-;'
sion. As the above verse frofi
Proverbs indicates, the toughest'
thing the human creature can"
come up against is a broken
spirit. Our first impulse is to'
say, "You shouldn't feel thatw
way" and perhaps as we look at
their external circumstances the'
advice seems logical. But we-
cannot see the internal turmoil,
the desperation breaking that'
tortured spirit. All we can d6
that is useful is reach out in"
unconditional love and do what
we can to make their environ-
ment' as pleasant as possible'
The rest is for the professionals"
and God.

Editor:
My name is Julia Newell and
as co-chairperson for the Girl
Scouts portion of the Highlands
County Fair, I would like' to
formally thank many people
who were directly and indirect-
ly involved in the second annu-

Eating Contest."
We wish to thank the spon-
sors of the prizes for "Cindy's
Girl Scout Eating Contest."
Prizes were donated by Sun 'N

Henscratch Farms; Heart of
Florida Girl Scouts; Peggy
Becerra, membership director
for Heart of Florida Girl
Scouts; Children's Museum of
Highlands County and Sebring
McDonald's.
The fair was a great experi-
ence for all the girls involved in
the fair exhibits and the Girl
Scouts want to thank the com-
munity for their involvement in
"Cindy's Girl Scout Cookie
Eating Contest."
Last year, our chairperson
for the contest was Cindy
Chambers, and she really put
her heart and soul into the
event. In the later part of 2005,
we lost Cindy to cancer and in
tribute to her immeasurable
contributions made to Girl
Scouting in Highlands County
our Girl Scout Service Unit
voted to continue the contest
and honor Cindy Chambers in a
way we think she would have
liked to be remembered.

Why is CR 635

still an issue?
Editor:
For years, County
Administrator Carl Cool has
repeatedly failed to talk
n<)) Highlands County commis-
rs sioners into extending County
Road 635 through Highlands
Hammock State Park. (That's
why he has to keep bringing it
up.) Now failing yet another
effort is county Development
Services Director Jim Polatty.
Polatty is so desperate to
keep his boss's pet project
afloat that he's resorted to voic-
ing baseless claims that there is
still hope. He references an
"ongoing" effort, "working
with state officials" to secure a
right-of-way through the park.
Yet, after a recent public
records request, the county
can't produce a single scrap of
paper, show a single e-mail, or
reference a single phone call
i' documenting this alleged
effort.
I think everyone now
believes the state and not
Polatty when it says it will
not be handing over any con-
servation lands for a highway.
I also think it's past time that
- members of county staff, like-
wise, believe their bosses (the
commissioners) when they say
s of the they don't want a highway run-
?ated in ning through either the park or
i fun as Golf Hammock. They've killed
)ntest. the project at least five times
11 who since 1999.
norable The only reason the idea
see you even appears on a county map
today is because staff slipped in
Melody a rough drawing of a 635 corri-
)-chair- dor during a 2001 round of ro.u-
o thank tine comp plan changes. This
)p lead- hardly reflects "current county
t at our policy" (another baseless claim
ir and by Polatty).

(State Road) 66 route remains

Sebring pet project of a few hired hands
working for the county.
f Girl Fortunately, these recalcitrant
Sebring domestiques are not in charge.
The commissioners have con-
sistently made the right call.
They just need to enforce it.
aS No one opposes the exten-
sion of 635 from Thunderbird
Road north, just from
Thunderbird Road south.
Former commissioner David
peasant Flowers was right when he said
even this improvement project to the
arming north end needs a new name.

Help bring an

end to the war
Editor:
As George W. Bush's illegal
war in Iraq enters its fourth
year, his supporters must be
ashamed of the many tragedies
they helped cause, including
the following:
Death of more than 2,300
U.S. military services person-
nel and tens of thousands of
innocent men, women and chil-
dren;
Injuries to more. than
17,000 troops, many having
had their lives ruined by result-
ing disabilities;
Expenditures of $400 bil-
lion in direct appropriations,
with the long-term cost of the
war likely to reach $2 trillion;
Proliferation of world-
wide terrorism fueled by


resentment of clear U.S. viola-
tions of international laws and
conventions:
Civil \\ar in Iraq fostered'
by Shiite-dominated govern-
ment whose security force
death squads slaughter people
of competing factions;
Lost stature of our country
as the world's leader in advanc-
ing peace and justice;
The rise to power of radi-
cal Islamists in the Middle East
and anti-U.S. leaders in South
and Central America; and,
Continued deterioration of
Afghanistan.
The unprincipled Bush
attempted to justify his war by
blaming Iraq for Sept. 11,
2001, in which the country had
no involvement. Now he touts
Saudi Arabia as a strong ally
and tried to turn over six of our
major ports to the United Arab
Emirates, countries that sup-
plied 17 of the hijackers and
most of the financing for the
attack on the World Trade
Center and the U.S. sites.
In addition to facilitating the
outsourcing of American jobs
to India, Bush has violated
international accords by agree-
ing to give nuclear technology
to that country, which refuses
to sign the nonproliferation
agreement. His irresponsible
and dangerous action will
encourage China to make simi-
lar deals with Pakistan and
other countries.
Contrary to the claims of the
devious president and his
gullible supporters, not a single
usable weapon of mass destruc-
tion was found in Iraq. (If they
were not so pathetic, it would
be revealing to reprint the ludi-
crous letters of those who
championed Bush's fraudulent
claims in writing to local
papers).
Instead of going after Iraq on
the pretense that it had
weapons of mass destruction,
the administration should have
been dealing with the real
threat of nuclear weapons
being developed and falling
into the hands of outlaw coun-

tries and terrorists. By his"
actions Bush has exacerbated,
[he threat not reduced or.
contained it. In addition to the. -
nuclear weapons being devel-
oped by North Korea and those
which may. be developed by
India and other countries, the
stockpile 'of weapons in what
was the Soviet Union still
exists, inadequately secured
and available for use by agents
of terror.
Supporters of the corrupt
president should admit they
were wrong, help end the war
now and demand that the
administration begin acting
responsibly and in accordance
with the rule of law.
Bring our troops home!

Exercise your

Editor:
Freedom. Wow, what a
word, it seems that some just
toss it around. According to
Webster's Collegiate 11th edi-
tion Dictionary, Freedom
means: 1. the quality or state of
being free as (a) the absence of
necessity, coercion or con-
straint in choice or action (b)
liberation from slavery or
restraint from the power of
another. 2. (a) a political right
(b) freedom has a broad range
of application from total.
absence of restraint to merely a
sense of not being unduly
hampered or frustrated. Well by
now you might have gotten the
idea I may be feeling a tad bit
as though my freedom is being
tampered with.
I'ye had brothers, cousins,
nieces, nephews, uncles, hus-
bands, stepsons, stepdaughters
and some damn good friends

the military to fight for my and
everyone else's freedom! Yet

Please allow me to back up a
bit. For close to two years pow
I've had my own small (very
small) karaoke business. A very

The friendly Shakespeare and Superman Friends don't let friends drive drunk


I received a let- SHEIU
ter from my eter-
nally cheerful Aunt Sheila E
Kay on a day when
I badly needed
cheering up. I'd
been housebound with a virus
for a week and was suffering
from what my grandmother
used to call Cabin Fever.
On this particular day my
appetite was returning, so I took
the letter, a thermos of coffee
and drove south searching for a
quiet place where I could have
my lunch. There's a hot dog
stand just a few miles out of
town, with a small park adjoin-
ing it. I turned in and bought a
sandwich. The picnic area was
almost deserted, so I chose a
bench away from the road and
opened the letter. Just then I
heard a soft meow and looked
up to see a black and white cat
sitting a few feet away from
me. I said "Hello Cat" and he
responded with a friendly,
"Meow." Introductions com-
pleted, I read the letter out loud
to him. He listened intently.
* Aunt Kay was the youngest
of four and in this letter she
chose to tell me what it was like
living with her talented sisters.
The oldest dreamed of becom-
ing a Broadway star; the second
oldest, my mother, was the
artist in the family; and the third
had visions of becoming a
famous comedian. The Great
Depression wiped out any
hopes they had of realizing their
dreams, but Kay's particular
talent was in caring for children
and unlike her sisters, she's
been quite successful. Parents
call six months in advance of
the blessed event to make sure
she'll be available. At age 86,
she's been known to throw a


A
E


SAYS towel around her
shoulders and play
Superman, leaping
SRyan over short has-
socks instead of
tall buildings, her
young charges following with
whoops of joy.
I read that part again and
tried to imagine my Mom and
my aunts as teenagers. Then
because I'd-been so sick and
weak I suppose, I got a little
sentimental over my tender
memories and felt the tears
come to my eyes. I sobbed out
loud inadvertently and two men
at a nearby table looked at me
with curiosity. I waved the let-
ter in their direction and smiled.
They understood and went back
to eating their chili-dogs.
My recovery began in that
park, sipping hot coffee and
conversing with an unusually
.intelligent and obviously liter-
ary stray cat. Aunt Kay always
loved cats and I can't help but
wonder if there wasn't some
significance to the fact that a
feline was my companion when
I read her letter. I know he did-
n't linger with me because of
the food, since he ignored the
hot dog I offered to share. I
considered adopting him. He's
a good listener. I could have
read my essays aloud to him
and been comforted by his kind
critiques. I named him
Shakespeare. Unfortunately,
when I stood up, he bounded
away into the underbrush and
disappeared.
Time and circumstances sep-
arate us from the people we
love and there isn't always a lot
we can do about that, but I'm
grateful that Aunt Kay and I can
stay in touch and I'm grateful
for animals like Shakespeare, to


whom we can turn when life
gets us down. We all have gifts
to share with others, so I will
continue to write, Aunt Kay
will continue to play Superman
for the children who will be bet-
ter human beings for having
spent time with her and I'm
sure Shakespeare will continue
to give solace to lonely picnick-
ers.
I believe my life was planned
before I was born and when I
think about it, everything I've
ever done, has brought me
irrevocably to the place I find
myself in today and as Aunt
Kay said at the end of her letter,
"So here I am and there you am.
Good night."

how I did my job. And believe
me I appreciate every last one
of their support.
Now if you aren't much into
karaoke, you may not realize
there are a lot of folks doing it.
I consider myself lucky enough
to know the best of them. Yet I
have seen them out when not
working, wearing ... shorts,
tank tops, dirty jeans and even,
heaven forbid, cleavage-show-
ing tops. And all this attire is
being worn in private clubs.
Places I have worked, places I
pay to be a member, places I
have donated my time at in
hopes of raising a few. more
bucks for their coffers.
Now I have to ask why they
do have the right, a.k.a., free-
dom, to dress as they wish on
their free time and be hired. Yet

may be even higher
since St. Patrick's
Day will be celebrat-
ed on a Friday night.
That's why your
local law enforce-
ment agencies is
joining forces with
other federal, state
and local highway
safety across the
nation to remind all
of those who plan on
using alcohol during
St. Patrick's Day fes-
tivities this year to
act responsibly by


designating their sober drivers
before the parties begin.
St. Patrick's Day has become
a big night out for many
Americans particularly
among young adults. But it has
also become a dangerous night
out on our roadways due to
impaired drivers. Whether
meeting a few friends at the
local pub after work or attend-
ing the 12 Hours of Sebring, if
you plan on using alcohol,
never drive while impaired -
and never let your friends drive
if you think they are impaired.
Designating a sober driver
before the local celebration
begins and making sure friends
don't drive drunk are just two
of several, simple steps to help
avoid a crash or an arrest for
impaired driving:
Designate your sober driv-
er before the party begins and
give that person your car keys,
and remember: Friends Don't
Let Friends Drive Drunk;
If you're impaired, call a
taxi, use mass transit or call a
sober friend or family member
to get you home safely;


Report impaired drivers to
law enforcement;
Always buckle up it's
still your best defense against
an impaired driver.

Impaired driving is no acci-
dent, nor is it a victimless
crime. Overall in 2004, more
than 15,000 people died in
highway crashes involving a
driver or motorcycle operator
with a BAC of .01 or higher. Of
those, nearly 13,000 were in
crashes where the BAC was .08
or higher.

Happy Hour may not be so
happy if you over indulge and
have one too many. If you are
caught and charged with
Driving Under the Influence
don't forget that the free ride to
jail isn't really free. Your
expenses will have just started.

Once in jail you will remain
there for a minimum of eight
hours. Then you will need at
least $500 for your bond. After
that, you haven't even made it
to court yet. If you are found
guilty of this charge you may be
paying as little as $678 for your
happy hour. You also will not
have driving privileges for
some time.
So don't depend on dumb
luck this St. Patrick's Day.
Designate your sober driver
before the party begins. Keep in
mind to drive defensively and
arrive alive.

10 Years Ago
March 17, 1996: Mike
Batterbee and Nate Perry
both homered to help Avon
Park beat the Hardee
Wildcats 13-3. Batterbee's
home run was a grand
slam and Perry's a three-
run shot as both players
finished with four RBIs.
Perry also had a RBI dou-
ble as the Devils improved
to 11-1 on the year.

15 Years Ago
March 17, 1991: Sebring
junior forward Brian
Whigham was named the
Highlands County boys
basketball player of the
year. The inaugural year of
the News-Sun honor,
Whigham averaged 23
points and 8.3 rebounds
per game. Sebring head
coach'Steve Young was
coach of the year.
,20 Years Ago
March 16, 1986: Avon
Park beat Lake Wales 5-2.
Standout starting pitcher
Thomas Gordon improved
to 6-0 on the year with the
win for the top-ranked Red
Devils. Gordon struck out
16 and allowed only one
hit for the growing mass of
scouts that had begun to

circuit.
Allan McNish, driving the No. 2 Audi
R10, didn't just break the qualifying record
set in 2002 by Frank Biela in an Audi R8,
he shattered it. McNish's best lap. of 1
minute, 45.828 seconds (125.865 mph) was
2.201 seconds better than Biela's record


and 1.845 ,seconds faster than Marco
Werner in the No. 1 Audi, which qualified
second. :

"'Thiss a historic da\ lol Audi and sports
car racing. We can be proud of what \\e

..The caj is perfectly balanced as a driver:
could ever have wanted. That third lap was
the best-ever qualifying lap in an Audi in
any part of my. career. It was really pushing
the car to the. absolute limits of adhesion
and using all of the power and all of the
torque we've got from the diesel."


McNish didn't want to put too much
stock into taking the pole, though. As histo-
ry has shown, being the fastest in qualifying
at Sebring means very little.

petition is going to be a little bit closer
when it comes to the Race itself."
Roger Penske's bright-yellow Porsche

Red Devil weightlifters marching


ahead in quest for state titles


By SCOTr DRESSEL
Sports Editor
AVON PARK There was some ,.
pretty heavy competition at the Travis
Todd Invitational at Avon. Park High
School on Monday, but it wasn't I e
enough 16 slop A oni Park's top three
.lifters'from rising t- the top. CALD
SeniorsAieC\ Caldv ell (139,pounds), ,
Justin Wilson (154) and Leroy Sanders
(169) all won their weight classes by a '
wide margin at the Invitational, keeping f
the trio right on track for their goal of
winning state championships.
Caldwell bench pressed 280 pounds -
and had a 215-pound clean-and-jerk for SAND
a 495-pound total to win his division by
95 pounds. Wilson had a 295 bench and
a 250 clean-and-jerk for a 545 total to __
finish 50 pounds ahead of anyone else
and Sanders benched an amazing 375
pounds to go al6ng with a 275-pound
clean-and-jerk I, .'-, 0) total to win by
60 pounds. WILS'
All three are unbeaten in three tour-
naments this year and have already set new
school bench press records. Caldwell and
Sanders also own the clean-and-jerk and total


weight records, a feat .Wilson will like-
ly duplicate by the end of the season.
Avon Park coach Don Hickman said
that his top three lifters all have a legit-
imate shot to win state championships
in their weight classes. .
"Leroy and Alex' have ,the, best
chance," he said. "Justin's going to
have a little tougher time, but he'll be
in the top three no matter what."
Sanders also has a chance to set a
state record for his weight class in the
bench press.
"The state record's 390," Hickman,
said. "He did 390 at the start of the
year, but since he had to lose some
weight he's dropped a little bit. He's
getting it back slowlybut surely."
The Devils' last tournament is
Saturday at Sarasota Booker, which
will give the lifters ,a chance to be
trained and ready when the district
tournament in Fort M6ade rolls around
April 6. *

Penske laughed when asked
when he last raced here, saying,
"I'm so old now I forget when it
was, but I think it was in the
1960s. I drove a Porsche
Spyder in '62 or '63."
Despite his faltering memo-
ry, he was close. Penske first
came to'here in 1961 the
10th annual 12 Hours of,
Sebring and drove with Bob
Holbert a Porsche RS61 to sixth
overall and first in class. The
car, was entered by Brumos
Porsche of Jacksonville.'

Miracle Motorsports
looking for a miracle
,KUMHO and Miracle
Motorsports are hoping for a
miracle that will enable the
team to compete in Saturday's
12 Hours. The miracle the
team is hoping for could arrive
from England in the form of a
new Hewland gearbox.
The team's gearbox housing
developed a crack during the
Thursday morning practice
session. The team does not
have a spare gearbox, so
Miracle Motorsports is trying
to get a new gearbox delivered
from England to Sebring by
tomorrow.
"It's a shame because the
.car was running well," said
driver James Gue, who turned
a 1:53.299 during the
Thursday morning practice
session. The car was running
well through traffic. I think in
qualifying trim we could get
into the high 1:50s. That
" ouldn i put us on the LMNP2
pole, but it would get us closer
than we've ever been and
means we could probably run
a race pace in the 1:55 range."
Cursed concrete
There seems to be some-
thing about a small section of
the wall outside Turn 15 that
has a car magnet on it. on

Porsche 911 slid backwards
into the wall and wiped out

85 Spyker CS left the track
and slid backward into the
same wall.
In fact, the Spyker took out
the two replacement barrier
pieces that were put in place
after the Porsche's wreck.
Small wreck, big fine
Despite Thursday's GTI
class pole win, it's not all been
good' ne\ s for the Aston
NManin team. On Wednesday
morning, the No. 009 car
struck the No. 44 Flying
Lizard Porsche on pit lane
after the end of morning test-

The Aston Martin team was

Director.

LAKE PLACID Steve Young fig-
ures he's done what he set out to do.
Five years after taking over the Lake
Placid boys basketball program, Young
has the Green Dragons back on track as
shown by this year's 15-8 record and trip
to the state playoffs and is ready to
hand the whistle over to somebody else.
"I've known for three or four weeks,
pretty much," Young said of his resigna-
tion, which he announced on Wednesday.
"I was ready to be finished.
"I've done it for 21 years, 14 of that
here in Highlands County. I'm ready for
some time off."
Young said that when he took the job,
he assured Principal Dr. Ruth Heckman
that he would remain for four years and he
stayed one year beyond that commitment.
He also said that he's leaving the program
in good shape.
"We had seven seniors go out this year,


but I think we've got some good young
talent coming in;" he said.. "Anybody
coming in has the possibility to go right on
with this thing and keep it rolling."
Young first came to Highlands County
in 1978 to coach Sebring, where he stayed
until 1982 before returning Ohio for four
years. He returned to Sebring and coached
the Streaks from 1988-91.
"I had a real good team in Sebring one
year (the 1982-83 season), 21-7, that was
district runner-up and we beat Bartow for
the first time," Young said. "They'd been
district champs for 10 years in a row. That
was a big win.
"Down here in Lake Placid, we had
eight wins in a row this season, but I think
more or less my best memory here is just
getting the program back up and running
and getting it to respectability again."
This past season, Young got his 200th
win in Highlands County.
"That was a milestone," he said. ."I give
the kids credit for that, I was just here

seasons.

watching them. They're the ones that did
all the work."
Young said he's already received some
phone calls about the position he's open-
ing.
"There's been a few people contact me.
There's been some interest already."

set last year.
"The car performed very
well. I think we all expected it
to," Luhr said. "The RS Spyder
still has major potential as a
reliable race car. I just hope we
did everything we could have to
be successful to win."
Luhr is trying to become the
second driver in the 54-year
history of Sebring to win six
class championships, joining
Johnny O'Connell. Last year,
Luhr won in GT2 with Petersen
Motorsports/White Lightning
Racing.
"I have always liked
Sebring," Luhr said. "We had a
long run at Laguna Seca, and
now this race is three times as
long. We don't have to prepare
the car differently, just make
sure it will last 12 hours."
The two. new Lolas of Dyson
Racing will start third and
fourth in class (fifth and sixth
overall) for their first race. Guy

entered by Mecom Racing of
Houston.
His final run as a driver was
in 1964, finishing first in class
in the No. 4. Chevrolet Corvette
Stingray with Jim Hall.
That proved to be a fortuitous
pairing for Penske because he
became the crew chief for the
winning car in 1965, the Jim
Hall/Hap Sharp Chevrolet
Chaparral 2A. It was the first


gave Aston Martin its first
ALMS pole (llth overall),
turning a record lap of 1:55.286
in the No. 009 DB9, which was
almost two seconds better than
the previous mark. The No. 007
Aston Martin took the second
qualifying spot in the class,
with the two Corvettes right
behind.
"Of course it's nice to be on
the pole," Lamy' said. "I don't
know what our competitors did
in qualifying because they were
faster yesterday. Maybe they
had traffic problems. We. are
just trying to compete. The
Corvettes are winning every-
thing over here. We want to
fight against them."
The Multimatic Motorsports
Team Panoz rounded out the
record-setting day with David

Ferrari was just a tenth of a sec-
ond back and the No. 51 Panoz

"It's a new challenge and
new season, so it's good to get
off to a good start with a good
team," said Brabham. "We've
worked awhile on qualifying
setup. The team obviously has
done a good job. Now we're

has a nationwide trucking and
rental-car business and his
bright yellow vehicles easily
spotted on the highways.

Speed World Challenge

Blown head gasket doesn't slow down Auberlen


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Bill Auberlen will .be on
the pole for today's SCCA Pro Racing
SPEED World Challenge Touring Car race
after setting a new track record during qual-
ifying Thursday. at Sebring International
Raceway. Charles Espenlaub was second
fastest and will start alongside Auberlen,
while Pierre Kleinubing will start third.
The SCCA SPEED Touring Car race is
scheduled for 11:25 a.m. today.
Auberlen needed just one flying lap in
his No. 2 BMW 325i to land the 13th pole
of his SPEED World Challenge career, tak-
ing the top spot on the grid with a record-
setting 2:19.040 (95.799 mph).
Auberlen's time was especially impres-
sive considering he was under pressure to
turn a fast lap quickly because of a blown
head gasket something that plagued his
BMW during Wednesday's practice.
"I was only able to do one lap because
the head gasket went bad and dumped all
the water out," Auberlen said. "That's the
same issue we had yesterday, but we didn't
have a head gasket. So, we had to put water
in it, do a Hail Mary, get one lap as hard as
I could and that was all we were going to


NOTES
Continued from 1E
GT2 class Saturday.
"We had some problems in
the set up but I'm looking for-
ward to it and feeling pretty
good and confident," he said.
Spoken like someone who
realistically knows that his car


get."
For taking the pole, Auberlen earned
five points toward his SPEED Touring Car
Drivers' Championship total. The 2003 and
2004 series Champion currently plans to
run the initial three races, hoping to secure
additional funding to complete the season.
Espenlaub, farther ahead in the field,
crossed the start/finish stripe sooner than
Auberlen and held the top spot briefly after
turning a 2:19.515 (95.473 mph) in his No.
97 Mazda 6. Had his time stuck, it would
have been the second pole of his career.
After three RealTime Racing Acuras
swept combined practice Wednesday,
Kleinubing, in the No. 42 Acura TSX, was
the lone RealTime entry in the top three
after running a 2:19.794 (95.283 mph).
Randy Pbbst arid Seth Thomas will start
fourth and fifth in a Mazda 6 and BMW
325i, respectively. In all, the top 19 cars
were under Auberlen's 2004 qualifying
mark of 2:23.199.
Reese wins GT pole
Leighton Reese took the SCCA Pro
Racing SPEED World Challenge GT pole
Thursday, running a 2:08.764 (103.445
mph) in his No. 6 Corvette C6 and setting a

Rockenfeller is the "veteran"
of the Job drivers, having run
here twice. This Will be the
first 12 Hours of Sebring for
teammates Klaus Graf and 17-
year-old Graham Rahal, son of
famous racer Bobby Rahal.
Rockenfeller said of Rahal,
"Sure, he's young, but age
won't matter if he's doing a


good job, but I hope he can do
well. He needs more time in
the car, but unfortunately, we
were struggling so much with
the set-up, his time was limit-
ed."
Rockenfeller, himself a
youngster, was 19 when he
first drove at Sebring two years
ago.

new SPEED GT Sebring qualifying record

Mike McCann will start second along-
side Reese and Tommy Archer qualified
third for the race, which is scheduled for
4:50 p.m. today.
After taking the top spot in the combined
practice sessions Wednesday, Reese
appeared .stronger still Thursday, blistering
the 3.7-mile, 17-turn road course to earn his
third pole of the past two seasons.
"Well, it's a good thing we came in and
did the test day, because we were a mess the
first couple of sessions," Reese said. "We
found a good balance on the car, and the car
has basically been a top-four machine ever
since then."
McCann, the 2004 SPEED GT Rookie of
the Year, was third during the early part of
the 20-minute qualifying session before
posting a 2:08.926 (103.315 mph) near the
halfway point in his No. 82 Dodge Viper.
Tommy Archer appeared to have a han-
dle on the front-row, outside slot in his No.
5 Dodge SRT Viper until McCann slipped
past him. Starting third in today's race,
however, still gives.Archer a solid chance
to defend his 2005 win at Sebring.

laughed, and said in perfect
English, "Good competition.
We have to fight hard to get
quicker than they. But it's good
for the series, and I'm looking
forward to fight against them."

fourth in class in the GT2 qual-
ifying while teammate Rahal
watched from Turn 1.


things that will add up to S
more wins in the future. j
"We've been working
the last couple of days on St.
laying off of the rise ball
and we knew both pitch-
ers were going to come
in here and throw that," said
Falla. "We didn't focus well
enough to lay off those (in the
second game) and then we'd
get frustrated and look at a
pitch."
Through both games Falla
stressed the importance of stay-
ing away from the rise ball,
telling his players "it's never a
strike" and warning against
"guessing" a pitch as opposed
to "reacting".
The most impressive reac-
tions in the first game were dis-
played by third baseman Cassie
Green, who almost single-
handedly won it for SFCC.
Smashing a home run in the
sixth to put the Panthers on top
for good, Green then nabbed a
hard-hit grounder in the sev-
enth, tagged third and then

rifled the ball to first to end the
game with a double play.
Green followed up her stellar
play in the first game with more
solid defense and a two-RBI
double in the second contest.
Unfortunately for the
.Panthers, they couldn't sur-
mount the five runs they gave
up to St. Pete in the first and
second innings.
Pitching control was a prob-
lem right away and the bases
were loaded when Anna Turvin
came in for relief. After the
Titans nearly batted around in
the first, SFCC found a defen-
sive groove in the middle
innings and was fortunate
to escape down only 5-0.
The best opportunity
r to tie the game came in
'ete the sixth when SFCC had
the bases loaded with one
out. After Courtney
Wallace flied out to left,
Sam Waldron worked a base on
balls for the hitless RBI, but the
Panthers managed only one
run.
Offense was the top priority
for Falla in the post-game
speech just as it was during the
games. Focusing, adjusting,
and reacting in the batters box
were all recurring themes.
"A lot of times what we're
doing, and what I mean by
'guessing,' is we're thinking
'she's known for a rise ball, this
is going to be a rise ball' and
that's not always the case,"
explained Falla.
"A couple of times she threw
a ball right down the pike and
we took 'em. It's a matter of
getting in there and identifying
the pitch, and then making the.
adjustments to that pitch."
