-- -into data: -. -..
The $45,000 system purchased
via a federal Homeland Security grant
can scan 1.000 license plates per
minute on vehicles traveling up to 120
mph (guaranteedI and up to 250 mph
(theoretically).
STag data is checked against the
National Crime Information System.
the Florida Crime Information System
and a local database of sexual offend-
ers and predators, Fane said.
Installed Tuesday, the system was
responsible for its first arrest
Wednesday afternoon.
Within 9 1/2 minutes of a hit-and-
run accident at U.S. 98 and Haywood
Taylor Boulevard, deputies nabbed the
suspect leaving the Raceway.
"The lady was able to give us tag
information and said the vehicle was
going toward the track," Fane said of
the victim, who called 911.
By entering the license plate data
she provided, Fane said the computer
immediately detected the vehicle,
informing the operators that "eight
minutes ago, this car with this tag

Raceway.


came through this lane."
One of the challenges England-
based NDI Technologies had in tailor-
ing the software for Florida was the
163 different license plate variations.
"This is one of the most difficult
states to do this in," Fane said.
An audible alarm sounds if a suspi-
cious tag is detected. At the track, a
deputy would exit the shack and ask
the driver to pull over.
But the system can also be used in
patrol cars, which is the plan after the
Races, Fane said.
Because the cameras monitor


license plates and not a vehicle's
occupants, deputies must verify that
whoever is driving is the person asso-
ciated with the tag in question.
"You're not going to arrest a person
just because the computer said that tag
is wanted for something," Fane said,
explaining that the originating juris-
diction is notified to verify that war-
rants are valid.
Tracking local sex offenders gives
officers peace of mind, he said, by let-
ting them know who's attending the
family event. Specific restrictions
vary by case, and attendance by a reg-


istered sex offender is not necessarily
a crime.
However, if any such crimes are
reported, investigators would have
additional information on potential
suspects.
The system is not foolproof, Fane
explained, because anybody wanted
on a warrant could enter the Race in a
borrowed vehicle.
"They shoot for a family environ-
ment out here," Fane said of the Race
organizers, explaining that the moni-
toring systems appears to indicate as
much so far.


Camping serious business at Raceway

a Jack Pollard flips over a slab of ribs as Martin Mackay (in back-

News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING

When the gates opened at the
Sebring International
Raceway at 6 a.m.
Wednesday to let fans in,
many of the early arrivals were carrying
boards, banners, tents and boxes of sup-
plies ready to set up camp for their own
assault on America's oldest sports car
endurance race.
The grounds of the track become a city
for the duration of Race Week with every
shape, size and level of dedication to the
temporary lodging.
Some of the campsites are simple pop-
up tents or awnings cobbled together with
motor homes and a grill, while others
include groupings of track-side parking
spaces that are covered, floored and fea-
ture amenities from bars to elevated view-
ing stands.
Many of the compounds have colorful


names like The Front Straight Juke, Camp
Hootie, Turn 10, Team Tampa and Club
Arnage.
In addition to the actual camping facili-
ties, the groups make no small effort to
accessorize. There's a plethora of lighted
palm trees, inflatable characters placed at
the sites ranging from space aliens to
Sponge Bob Squarepants to more adult-
oriented themes and there are yards of
picket fences or strings of flags stretched
around to denote their claimed territory.
Probably the best known campsite at
Sebring is McGruffs. Picked as the No. 1
campsite at the Raceway during the 50th
anniversary celebration in 2002, the group
now has taken more than 20 track-side
slots near the drive-over bridge leading
into Green Park.
"My brother Joe and I started out there
when we were just 14 and everybody
knew everybody else. My dad dropped us

AVON PARK Five offi-
cers, two K-9s and Avon Park
Police Chief Frank Mercurio
schooled a gym full of
teenagers Wednesday.
Taser and K-9 demonstra-
tions were given to Avon Park
High School students during
an educational experience
some won't soon forget.
"This is not shown to scare
you, this is life," Mercurio
said, displaying a picture of a
drunk driver's fatality crash.
"The worst job I have is to
knock on someone's door at 3
o'clock (in the morning) and
tell them someone is dead
because they got in a car with
a drunk driver."
The assembly featured a
slide show on the after effects
of drinking and driving, a K-9
exhibition, videos of men
being Tasered, and a live
Taser demonstration on a tar-
get.
Some students seemed to
take more away from the
potentially life-changing
presentation than did others,
but overall the police said the
assembly went well.
"I thought it was going to
be boring but I learned a lot,
like to wear your seat belt,"
11th-grader Quinterica
Gordin said. "It's the number
one thing to do after seeing
the pictures of the car crash. It
makes me want to buckle up."
After the slide show, the K-
9 officers led their dogs
across the empty gym floor.

SEBRING Like many
people, Liz Halliday's eye-
sight isn't perfect. Unlike
most people, Halliday is' a
top-level Le Mans .Series
driver :'-mcompeting'- in
Saturday's 12 Hours of
Sebring.
Halliday, who was born in
San Diego and lives in
England, has enjoyed several
successes at the 12 Hours.
Her second place overall fin-
ish last year was the highest
finish by a female driver in
the 55-year history of the
Sebring race.
Because eyesight is impor-
tant while racing at high
speeds and navigating tight
turns, Halliday uses iZon
High Resolution Lenses.
She noticed an improve-
ment in her vision right away.
"They made a difference
for my first race," Halliday
said. "Once I tried them, there
was no going back."
In the world of eyeglasses,
iZon is very unique. The lens-
es are made by using the Z-
View Aberrometer, a diagnos-
tic tool used by eye doctors to
produce an individual's lens-
es. The Aberrometer, which
uses technology originally
developed for the U.S. gov-
ernment's "Star Wars" mis-
sile-defense program, meas-
ures more than 11,300 points

K-9 officer Jose Molina commands partner Ringo to speak in front of a packed Avon Park
High School gym Wednesday morning. The assembly featured a demonstration by Molina
and Ringo together with K-9 officer Marc Wilbur and partner Ivan, a Taser demonstration
and talk about the risks of drug use and drinking and driving.


Even off their leads the ani-
mals responded to commands
from a distance. The bleach-
ers were packed with some-
what quiet students watching
in awe.
When asked how well the
dogs detect scents, Mercurio
passed the microphone to K-9
officer Marc Wilbur.
"Motor oil, coffee, we have
seen it all and the dog can still
pick it up," Wilbur said of
attempts to mask the odor of
illegal drugs. "Smoke mari-
juana in your car and a dog


can still pick up the smell in
the headliner, seats and floor-
boards for up to seven
months."
This fact amazed 12th-
grader April Rivers.
"I didn't know drugs can
stay in your car for up to
seven months," Rivers said.
"Dogs know how to separate
smells."
Senior Derrio Dollard said
he learned valuable lessons
such as dealing with different
situations and making himself
more safe.


But, there were skeptics.
"Watching the big dude get
Tasered was my favorite
part," sophomore Ryan
Nowell said, explaining he
already knew most of the
facts the officers covered.
After the Taser video, offi-
cers used a target to demon-
strate the less-than-lethal
weapon's shock-and-awe
capability.
The assembly gasped and
cheered when the probes hit
the target, producing flashes
of electricity.


on each pupil. The detailed
eye exam results in an iPrint,
or optical fingerprint, unique
to each person.
The lenses are especially
useful for night driving.
because they are designed to
improve the clarity of vision.
Halliday said she noticed the
improvements immediately.
"In the first race I wore
them, I was faster at night
than during the day," she said.
Halliday will be driving the
Number 63 Team Modena
Aston Marton DBR9 in the
GT1 class. She said she's
looking forward to Saturday's
challenge.
"Sebring is widely known
as one of the hardest, if not
the hardest, track in the coun-
try," she said. "It's the biggest
sports car race, and it's also
very historical."
Saturday's race will be her
first in Sebring with the iZon
lenses. She also uses the lens-
es when she's pursuing her
budding equestrian career.
The iZon lenses, made by
Ophthonix, Inc., are available
to the public. However, they
are only available from eye
doctors with the Aberrometer
technology.
While there are no doctors
with the technology in
Highlands County, there are
some in the surrounding area,
including Orlando, Braden-
ton, Venice and Sarasota.


Later, police played addi-
tional video of officers trying
to avoid being immobilized
by the devices to no avail.
The training video captured
the effectiveness of the Taser
- stopping bad guys in their
tracks despite the size of the
officer or the suspect.
As with the general public,
some students voiced concern
with the weapon's temporari-
ly debilitating effects.
"I think Tasers can give you
an electric shock and could
cause someone to have a heart
attack," senior Vicki
Robinson said.
Nobody has died from
being shot with a Taser,
Mercurio said. Nonetheless,
people remain leery of it.
"We went through the same
thing with pepper spray," he
said.
The timing of the assembly
and its focus on drunk driving
and illegal drugs was ideal for
the week before Spring Break,
assistant principal Seth
Lambert said.
School Resource Officer
Kevin Mengo maintains high
visibility at the school and
talks to the students, which
inspired him to organize the
assembly.
He hopes it becomes an
annual event.
"I respect them and they
respect me," Mengo said of
the students. "I think its
important to show this kind of
stuff."

Kevin Roberts to retire in April


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher: tuffley @ newssun.corn
SEBRING Kevin
Roberts, who for 16 years has
been the director of both the
county's Department of
Human Services and the
Children's Services Council,
surprised the community by
turning in his letter of resig-
nation last Friday.
As the first person to hold
either title, Roberts has long
been associated with both
agencies' Work. His last day
with the county will be April
27.
In fact, by joining forces
with two of Highlands
County's powerhouse women,
Doris Gentry, at the time a
county commissioner, and
Ruth Handley, the school
superintendent, Roberts
helped bring the council to
life.
"The county wasn't willing
to put the money in I had
hoped for," he said, referring
to the council. "But what I
thought was a curse at first
turned out to be a total bless-
ing. With limited public fund-
ing we had to involve the pri-
vate sector as well. So we cre-
ated a non-profit foundation,
which was incorporated in
1994 and engaged all the
shareholders. We started to
write mini-grants, and helped
establish new services."
Over the next 13 years
came a long string of success-
es.
For example, an abandoned
and rundown convenience
store was turned into the
Children's Advocacy Center.
It provides multi-agency eval-
uation and services to abused
children, and has been recog-
nized as a model for centers
of its type, awarded for best
practices.
And in another major con-
version and model of its kind,


an abandoned military base
that was actually in Polk
County, was turned into the
Avon Park Youth Academy -
a residential program for trou-
bled male adolescents empha-
sizing job training and crime
prevention. It has grown to be
the fourth largest institute of
its kind in
the state.
T he
council
also has
provided
grant
money to
various
local agen-
ROBERTS cies like
Habitat for
Humanity,
and the Early Learning
Coalition.
Roberts' energy and leader-
ship will be missed, his col-
leagues say.
For instance, Mary Foy,
assistant director of human
services, said, "Kevin is a
man that I have grown to
respect and admire greatly.
His personal charisma, energy
and enthusiasm are conta-
gious, and his knowledge of
human services is nothing
short of astounding. He is a
fun guy to be around and it is
an education everyday to
watch him work. But it is his
faith that underlines every-
thing, shapes his ethics, and
earns him the loyalty of those
who call him boss.
"I have worked with Kevin
on every project for the last
13 years, and there could be
no better lesson. I will miss
working for him, but expect
to keep working with him.
He's not the kind of man who
will cease doing good things
for Highlands County's fami-
lies. It is simply not in his
character."
Nancy Hensley, chair-


woman of the Children's
Services Foundation, said,
"The main thing I think of is
how much heart and soul he
has poured into his job. And
his emphasis on making life
better for the children of
Highlands County. He will be
sorely missed. One other
thing, his job is not just a job
to him, it is a mission, a
Christian mission."
Roberts, who was raised in
Kentucky by parents who
emphasized Christian. charity
and lived as an example, has
always tried to keep his prior-
ities straight God and fam-
ily first, then work.
But it hasn't always been
easy, in 34 years he has taken
only one two-week vacation.
Retiring wasn't a decision
he took lightly he said. He
had prayed on the matter and
consulted family and friends.
"It's a spiritual thing," he
said. "In the Bible it says for
every thing there is a season.
My time is closed."
A friend's recent death, one
month after he decided to
retire, did cause Roberts to re-
examine his own life. After 34
years of public service, the
last 16 with the Highlands
County, he discovered he was
ready for a slightly slower
pace and new challenges.
One of those challenges is
the role of chief executive
officer for the Children's
Services Foundation, which
he will do as a part-time job.
He also plans to visit nursing
homes with his Papillion dog.
The one thing he won't be
doing, he said almost fiercely,
is sitting at home with a tele-
vision remote control in one
hand.
"I could not be more
blessed," he said sitting back
in his chair. ""Others may be
equally blessed, but not more
blessed ... no, not more."

Special to the News-Sun
LAKE PLACID News-
Sun columnist Jan Denise is
slated as the guest speaker at
this year's annual Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce
Administrative Professional
luncheon is scheduled for
Wednesday, April 25, at
Placid Lake Country Club.
This popular event will once
again be sponsored by Jeanne
Fortier, owner of Home &
Office Essentials.
Cost for the luncheon is
$20 per person, and are on
sale at the chamber office.
This event is opened to
Greater Lake Placid Chamber
of Commerce members only.
When Jan Denise experi-
enced the freedom and joy of
being exactly who she was,
she wanted to share them. She
wanted to help others realize
that the greatness they had
been trying to conjure up was
there, buried under the stuff
(education, status, money)
commonly used to band-aid
self-esteem. Her efforts gave
birth to her weekly newspaper
column, Naked Relationships,
published every Wednesday


in the News-Sun. The
columns is represented by
Creators Syndicate and is
printed in newspapers all over
the country.
Denise says that nothing
has more impact on life than
relationship, and there is
nothing she would rather
write about. All relationships
reflect the
relation-
ship with
self.
She is
the author
of "Naked
Relation-
ships" (and
three other
gift books) DENISE
published
by Hamp-
ton Roads. She conducts
workshops and retreats all
over the country, speaks pro-
fessionally for business, char-
ity and wellness events, and
has accepted an invitation to
again serve on the faculty of
Omega Institute. While home
and traveling, she coaches
individuals and couples. And,
she frequently accepts invita-


tions for talk radio. She is
delighted to offer readers -
as well as listeners.,- a com-
pass as they find their own
way to nakedness and love.
Denise has lived with her
heart and mind wide open.
She has been a good student;
and life has been an incredi-
ble teacher. She shares from a
heart that has been there and
supports her message with the
best of the leading experts
from academia (many of
whom endorse her work).
And, she does it with the zeal
and compassion of one who is
still learning.
She will also be selling her
books at the luncheon, with a
portion of the proceeds bene-
fiting the Lake Placid
Chamber of Commerce.
Contact the chamber at
465-4331 or e-mail cham

SFCC offers free exam review


for prospective K-12 teachers


Special to the News-Sun
AVON PARK Knowing
that even teachers need to
study and sometimes suffer
from some test anxiety, the
Educator Preparation Institute
of South Florida Community
College is offering two free
exam review sessions to help
future teacher candidates pass
their state General
Knowledge and Mathematics
Examinations.
Although both sets of ses-
sions are free to participants,
pre-registration is required
because space is limited. All
books and handout materials
will be provided for both
workshops.
The General Knowledge
review session is a compre-
hensive review taught by the
college's EPI faculty who


have extensive K-12 teaching
experience. The classes are
specifically designed for not
only the EPI's own student
teachers, but also prospective
teachers from the Highlands,
Hardee, and DeSoto counties.
General Knowledge ses-
sions are scheduled for 6-9
p.m. Thursday, March 29,
April 5 and April 12, all in
Room G-102. Subject areas
will include discussion of the
examination content, test-tak-
ing tips and strategies, test
anxiety, general mathematics,
English language skills, and
essay writing skills practice.
The Mathematics review
session is for teacher candi-
dates who need to boost their
confidence in the subject. It is
set up as an intensive series of
math review workshops

First-time

visitors ready

for 12 Hours
By JACK HARRIS
Special to The News-Sun
SEBRING Jerry Ott and
Suzanne Graffe, brothers and
sisters, lounging in their lawn
chairs at Turn 13, were happy
to admit that they are first-
time visitors to the Sebring
International Raceway.
Ott has liked sports-car rac-
ing for many years and while
stationed in Germany with the
U.S. Air Force, had the oppor-
tunity to watch the 24 Hours
of Le Mans races in 1984 and
1985.
In 1983 he was at the Indy
500 and has watched ALMS
at Lime Rock in Connecticut.
However, if his red No. 8
chair is any indication, he's a
Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan. Graffe
quickly admitted that "Mark
Martin is my favorite, that's
my man, and one of his sons
did quarter midgets like my
son," a reference to Andrew
Narducci, 20, of Chester
Conn.
Ott said, "But I really like


CAMPING
Continued from 1A
off at the tree and told us to
be there when he got back -
and we were," Martin
Mackay said.
It was just known as
Mackay's campsite for years
until 1984 when Martin's
wife Judy won a stuffed dog
at the Highlands County Fair.
"Somebody said, 'That
looks like (McGruff) the
Crime Dog.' Well, it really
doesn't, but the name stuck
anyway," Mackay said.
Approaching four decades
camping at the Races, it
takes better than a week to
get the camp fully set up and
the group now has swelled to
a couple hundred devotees,
many of who are in the safe-
ty services.
"We're into our third gen-
eration now," Mackay said.
The gathering has spawned
a quasi-professional cooking
outfit, with McGruff's
Barbecue now a crowd
favorite on the competition
cooking circuit.
But, said Mackay, it's
more than just fun and profit.
"We did the cooking for
the Relay for Life and helped
one year with the Make-A-
Wish Foundation when they
had a weekend out here at the
track. That's a great thing, to
help kids with cancer," he
said.
"It's a lot more than just us
having a party out here at the
Race."
Another well-established
group with a presence at SIR
on Race Week is F-Troop.
Started in 1971 by West Palm
Beach residents Chauncy
Wallace and Bobby Armor,
they now feature a live band
and dozens of members who
show up each year enjoy the
party and the Race.
Wallace had been to the
Sebring 12 Hours as a young-
ster and remembers sitting

Brother and sister Jerry Ott and Suzanne Graffe are in
Sebring as first-time visitors to the Sebring International
Raceway.


Ron Fellows," Fellows is a 12
Hours veteran. Ott and Graffe
hope to meet him in the pad-
dock before the race.
Talking about Narducci,
she said he started in quarter-
midgets when he was 8, and
had two race cars. "He loves
it. Now he has a mini sprint
he runs at a dirt track in
Massachusetts."
Gaffe added, "Another
interesting aspect of his rac-

atop his father's shoulders to
watch the famous Le Mans
start, where drivers would
run across the front stretch of
the track, jump in their cars,
start them and then race off.
Over the years, the F-
Troop has had such events as
a slip-and-slide into a kiddie
pool, wheelchair jumping
over a bonfire, human bowl-
ing where participants
would hurl themselves head
first down the lane and into
the pins and a traditional
"drum parade," which now
includes many more instru-
ments than just drums.
In the past, the campsite
served as the mooring point


used to work at Whalen
Engineering in Connecticut."
She left that job in
December to move to Merritt
Island with her mother.
Ott and Graffe were born in
New Haven and grew up in
Clinton along the shore
between New London and
New Haven.
They have already made
friends along the fence line at
the famous Tower Turn 13.
Now, if they can just locate
Ron Fellows.


for "Runaground," a cruising
vehicle comprised of a boat
body mounted on a jeep
frame and driven about the
Raceway grounds at a time
when cruising the Race was a
way of life.
Denizens of the Chicane
area, Dodge City is another
longtime encampment. It
might be best known for its
saloon, complete with swing-
ing doors, bar lights and even
a pinball machine. At Turn
10, visitors can get a
panoramic view from a high
tower and on Friday evening
are treated to a slide show
with shots ranging from some
of the more exotic automo-
biles to some of the more
exotic women who show up
at the Raceway.
In the past few years, there
has been an effort to identify
each of the campsites and
encourage fans to visit in a
kind of combination of a pro-
gressive dinner and pot-luck
supper as Race and party
enthusiasts move about the
sprawling facility to watch
the competition from as
many different vantage points
as possible.
Bringing the gift of beer
for the hosts is always a good
idea.
Much of the interaction
between these groups has
been facilitated through the
sebringfans.com Web site,
where those who love the
Race gather to talk about the
upcoming event, exchange
helpful hints such as
bringing ant killer if you
intend to camp or where the
showers are located. The site
is full of detailed directions
to their camps and how to
easily identify them.
Many campers have
staked their claims and
become fixtures in the same
locale for years. They warn
newcomers while they are
welcome to come and party,
territorial infringement is,
well, frowned upon.

Continued from 1A
Cumberland Street home.
"We know there was no
sexual activity," Chess said
Wednesday, when asked if
rape, robbery or burglary are
suspected.
He would only describe her
wounds and cause of death as
"massive trauma to her upper
torso."
Chess confirmed a weapon
was used. But, because a sus-
pect remains at large, he did-
n't want to divulge what
detectives know or suspect
about the crime.
He wouldn't discuss signs
of defensive wounds, but he
confirmed a struggle occurred
in the utility/wash room.
Chess' detectives verified
that Jaramillo's husband was
at work Tuesday morning.
They have no suspect or sus-
pects, he said. -
"They do not want to call
law enforcement," Chess said
of the mostly Hispanic com-
munity on the south side of


Sun 'N Lakes Lake Placid, a
known harbor for illegal
aliens sometimes referred to
as "no-man's land."
Crimes committed against
people not legally in the
country are often unreported
because the victims fear
deportment.
But once area residents
understood why an officer
was knocking on the door,
neighbors opened up and pro-
vided what information they
could, Chess said.
"We talked to the people in
the neighborhood and every-
thing was normal," he said,
explaining that an interpreter
was used. "We do not know if
this is a first incident (at the
home), or if something else
has happened but didn't get
reported."
He asked Lake Placid resi-
dents to call if they've
encountered any suspicious
people at their homes recent-
ly, but didn't feel the need to
call law enforcement at the
time.
Chess is keeping open the


possibility that what occurred
Tuesday in the Jaramillo
home may have been previ-
ously attempted elsewhere,
and said his department is
using English and Spanish
fliers, radio and Crime
Stoppers to appeal .to Lake
Placid for any information to
point officers in the correct
direction.
Asked if Jaramillo was a
citizen, Chess said he didn't
know and it wasn't relevant to
his task solving a homicide
and "getting a very bad guy
off the streets."
"It doesn't matter if you're
illegal or legal," he said,
wanting to pass on his assur-
ances to Highlands County
residents. "You are here and
you are protected by our con-
stitution."
Chess clarified that investi-
gators don't know whether
they're looking for one or
more male or female suspects.

55th Annual Mobil 12 Hours of Sebring




La Bomba Racing makes plenty of




laps at Raceway, just not on track


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING They were at
the forefront of the trend,
developed their craft during
the golden age and now La
Bomba Racing is one of the
few Race party cruisers left at
the Sebring International
Raceway.
The crew will is celebrating
the 10th anniversary of their
special ride during this year's
Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.
It all started in 1981 when a
group of guys from the West
Palm Beach area painted up
an old, nearly trashed AMC
Gremlin to drive about the
grounds during the 12 Hours.
Later they upgraded and pur-
chased a Pontiac stretch limo,
later they took and cus-
tomized a Cadillac. In 1997
they got serious, taking a
parade float and turning it
into what La Bomba Racing
crew member Matthew
Greenwood calls the ultimate
art car.
It was in 1981 they found
the Pontiac stretch limousine
in a publication called "Keels
and Wheels," a shopper mag-
azine for those in the market
for used vehicles.
"That was great, it was
already painted yellow and
had the Bimini top on it and it
was just about ready to go. Of
course we had to customize it
a bit ourselves," he said.
It was in those days of the
late 1970s and early 1980s
that many of the other wildly
painted paddock cars began to
appear. And it might have
been that yellow Pontiac that

reflect each Race. Members of the group recently completed painting the cruiser for it's debut at this year's Race.


was the original for-purpose
paddock car.
Later the group acquired a
Cadillac Seville. Being from
the southeast coast, it only
seemed natural they cus-
tomize with a nautical flair.
So the car was adorned with a
bowsprit the pole that
extends forward from the
front of a vessel an elevat-
ed "Tuna Tower" for better
viewing of the action and a
rumble seat to allow for as
many passengers as possible.
It was in 1997 when they
got hold of an old parade float
from the Sarasota Shriners.
"They'd used it for a lot of
years, but then they just let it
sit out in a field for a long
time and that's where we
came across it," Greenwood
said
The group purchased the
deteriorating vehicle and
began to refurbish it.
Greenwood said the "bones of


the vehicle" were intact. The
frame and the floorboards still
were solid as were the upright
stanchions and roof assembly
as well as the running gear
They began their creation
by replacing the engine and
the transmission and
reworked the front end of the
vehicle.
"Originally the Shriners
had a box on the front where
the clowns jumped out and we
reworked that," he said.
After one of the group
became the auto body repair
instructor at the Sarasota
County Technical Institute,
the rest of the crew actually
enrolled in the course to learn
the skills to fix it.
In fact, the parade float
actually became the class
project.
It was not an easy task, and
Greenwood said it became a
process of discovery.
"We're not sure, but we


think it's built on the frame of
a bus," he said. "It actually is
licensed, registered and titled
in the state of Florida as a
1997 built-from-parts station
wagon."
The registration itself is
several yards long, encom-
passing not only the official
documentation but also the
group's correspondence with
the state, receipts for materi-
als used in building the vehi-
cle and litany other informa-
tion.
"You might as well have
some fun with it," he said
The group actually drives
the La Bomba from Sarasota
to Sebring. It makes surpris-
ingly good time, able to make
the journey in less than three
hours. They do take the back
roads and don't break any
speed records. Greenwood
said one of the most reward-
ing parts of the journey is the
comments they get from other


motorists.
"They're always honking
their horns and giving us the
thumbs up. It's a real hoot,"
he said.
The group is fairly particu-
lar as to who is permitted to
ride in the vehicle, requiring
they be on their best behavior
while they're out cruising.
This has become more impor-
tant in recent years as the
track cracks down on the idea
of driving about aimlessly
during the Race.
Over the course of the
years, there have been lots of
art cars. There have been con-
verted luxury sedans like
those of the Zoo Crew and
Mr. Badwrench. Others have
converted golf carts, step vans
and other vehicles as their
chosen mode of transporta-
tion.
Those cars have come and
gone, but La Bomba racing
continues.

Nature's surprises


Eight: days, 45 people, and
one bus equals a very uncom-
fortable: environment. Initial-
ly, I was excited about the
eight days away from campus
but when the 45 personalities
started to clash and I spent
more time sleeping on the bus
than in the hotels, I became a
little worried.
During my first spring
break of my college experi-
ence I decided to tour the east
coast with my choir. I was
very anxious to get on the
road because I love to travel. I
was also very excited about
getting to know each and
everyone of.my fellow choir
members a little better. This
trip exceeded my expecta-
tions.
I got to know everyone too
well. I was forced to spend
every minute with them for 24
hours for eight days in a row.
I found out that people change
once they are out of their
familiar environments.
I also discovered a new dis-
gust for buses. I used to favor
charter buses over school


buses any day but
now I hate them all.
These were the most
uncomfortable days
of my life: I am not
sure if my knees will
ever forgive me.
In addition to
learning so much
about others, I
learned some things
about myself. My
body can take more
abuse than I thought


On My
Mind
Georgia Dawkins


it could and I get extremely
motion sick while riding for
long periods of time.
Our first day on the bus, I
had to make my way to the
rest room in the back. My
breakfast and dinner were
ready to come up. I thought I
was better until the end of our
first performance that day
when I knew that my life was
over.
We had just completed our
last song and the pastor of
that church was saying the
final prayer when I found
myself praying that he would
hurry up. As soon as the


"amen" came I made
my way to the rest
room. I am happy to
say that it did not get
any worse than that
because I got better,
During the eight-
day tour we traveled
to North Carolina,
Connecticut,
Maryland, Indiana,
and Georgia. I had
only visited two of
the three states prior


to our journey. When we
arrived in Connecticut, we
could see evidence of snow. I
was not as excited as every-
one else because I had seen
snow before.
After we sang, someone
yelled "snow" and everyone
dashed to the door. When I
walked outside it was like I
stepped into a movie. The
snow was falling very fast but
it was so light.
Everyone was jumping,
laughing and sliding. It was
what everyone had been wait-
ing for, including me. I too
became a little excited at the


sight of the snow falling so
beautifully. Even though we
were all adults, no one could
tell the difference between us
and the elementary students
we had just performed for.
While traveling through
West Virginia we had to go
around mountains. On one
occasion we almost got stuck
in the snow. Some thought
that we were not going to
make it, but I just enjoyed the
experience. We also were
privileged to shop at several
different malls.
Unfortunately, by the time
we reached the last mall in
Atlanta, many of us were sim-
ply window shopping. I must
say that I did not think I was
going to make it through the
week but when I look on the
bright side, the good out-
weighed the bad.


Georgia Dawkins is a 2006
graduate of Sebring High
School. She is a freshman at
Florida A & M University in
Tallahassee.


Letters


My life as a child was a
journey of natural food dis-
covery. It was nothing to
graze my way through sum-
mer days, living off the land.
We kids would refuel our-
selves on pears, peaches or
plums and what we called
"pickle clover," which grew
thick in my front lawn and
tasted like dill pickles. There
was a ready supply of assort-
ed nuts in the fall, and in sum-
mer there were mulberries,
and for dessert, we would pull
the stamens from honeysuckle
blossoms and suck off the
drop of "honey" that came
with them.
( I tested and tasted virtually
everything that was available,
until I came across the fig tree
in Glen Dahl's yard. I stared
at the little dark purple sacks
dangling from the tree
branches and eyed Glen.
"What the heck are those?"
"They're figs," he said.
"Figs!"
"Yeah."
I tested the weight of one
of the figs; it was heavy and
... squashy.
"They're nasty," I sur-
mised.
"How do you know?"
"Look at 'em!"
"The birds like 'em," he
said.
"Birds eat worms and
bugs," I reminded him.
"These are old lady fruits," I
decided. "You have an old
lady fruit tree in your yard."
He stared at me, stricken.
An old lady fruit tree was not
cool, hence he was not cool.
How the heck could he fix
this? About that time Glen's
mother came out the back
door.
"Ya'll don't mess with
those figs if you're not going
to eat them," she said.
"Mom, what do you do
with the figs?," Glen asked,
apparently hoping to learn
that they cured the common

cold or some such thing.
"Well, I can stuff them or
preserve them, or make jelly
or even pudding, but your
father and I like to eat them
right off the tree. They're fat
free," she said, "and they
have a lot of fiber."
"What is fiber for?" Glen
asked, obviously hoping that
it was something magical.
"Well, it ... keeps you regu-
lar," she said finally, and Glen
blushed even harder.
Old lady fruits.
Glen and I forgot about the
fig tree and went on about our
day, and out of deference to
his feelings I didn't bring it
up again.
One weekend my father
and I were rotating the tires
on his truck. It was late after-
noon and the hunger pangs
were starting.
"I'm going to go get a
snack," I announced.
"There's some cookies in
my glove compartment," my
father said, as he wrestled a
tire into place.
Cookies!
I located the cookies and
studied them. They were little
fat squares stacked inside a
clear cellophane sleeve. I had
never seen cookies like this
before, and my father's tastes
were somewhat eclectic; I had
seen him take an entire slice
of hot cornbread and stuff it
into a glass of cold buttermilk

Florida needs

gun restrictions
Editor:
Four states California,
Maryland, South Carolina and
Virginia put a limit on the
number of guns one person can
buy at a time. It is difficult to
find a state with more lenient
gun laws than Virginia but it
nevertheless decided that no
one needed to buy more than
one gun a month. After Virginia
passed this law in 1993 the
number of crime guns in New
York traced to Virginia dropped
61 percent.
These facts are available
from the Brady Center For The
Prevention of Gun Violence.
California has restrictions on
the sale of assault rifles and
attachable magazines. High
capacity magazines' have been
associated with a number of
horrific crimes.' In Alameda
County, the sheriff's depart-
ment says that this law has
reduced the number of assault
weapons on the street.
Last August in Palm Beach
County, landscaper Franck
Joseph was killed with an
assault rifle in a drive-by shoot-
ing.
Earlier this year, near
Lantana, in a possible case of
road rage, someone used an
assault rifle to fire 15 shots into
a car. Of the two men inside,
one was left in critical condi-
tion.
These facts have appeared in
the Palm Beach Post.
Last year the Florida legisla-
ture considered a bill to allow
anyone to take any type of
weapon into a workplace. It is


difficult to imagine a more
foolish bill or one more likely
to endanger law abiding
employees. Under such a law,
gang members who carry
assault weapons in their car
could now bring them inside
where they work. Or they could
bring them into any other busi-
ness without being challenged.
.While the National Rifle
Association pushed the gun-
brandishing bill, the chamber
of commerce opposed it and it
was defeated. How a public
collision between two promi-
nent organizations got so little
space in the press is a mystery.
This year the NRA is trying
again to endanger all law abid-
ing Floridians.

Harmony will

be best help

Editor:
We've all heard about, read
or seen the shocking conditions
at the Walter Reed Medical
Center outpatient building 18
and possibly other locations,
but why the surprise and
despair? This is the Bush
Administration, such condi-
tions are par for such as they.
Remember those fairy tales
we were told about ... Saddam
having Weapons of Mass
Destruction? Seems that Bush
and company thoroughly
expected them to be true once
our troops invaded Iraq. Those
expectations were based on
their belief that Saddam still
had huge stockpiles of the
chemical WMD's left over
from those he used in the '80s


war with Iran and in his attempt
to exterminate the Kurds. So
where did Saddam get such ter-
rible weapons? Why, from the
good ole' United States of
America during the Reagan
administration!
But a funny. thing happened
on the way to Baghdad, there
weren't any to be found! So,
being the Great Flip-Flopper,
what did Bush do? He merely
changed course and said we
were now "freeing the Iraqi
people from a murderous dicta-
tor and we'll give these people
what they've always wanted,
(sound the trumpets) democra-
cy"!
Any high school student
knows what transpired after
World War I when Great
Britain took control of what
was the Ottoman Empire, and
in the area that at one time
known as Mesopotamia they
created, in 1921, the country of
Iraq. They put the Sunni's in
charge, creating even more ani-
mosity between the Muslim
Sunni's and Shiites who have
been at each other's throats for
800 years and the non-Arabic
Kurds. This was done so that
Great Britain would have con-
trol of that underground sea of
oil.
How could anyone in his
right mind expect to install a
democracy in a country like
Iraq with three diverse groups,
the Shiites, Sunni's and Kurds?
You cannot force democracy on
a people with guns and bombs!
As that financial institution
said "you have to earn it!" In
our War of Independence
against England and King
George III, our people were
united in their desire for inde-


pendence. When, and only
when the people of Iraq can
live with each other in some
form of harmony will they ever
be free to determine their own
destiny.

Better reward,

not charges
Editor:
"Suspect Refuses Plea Deal"
sounds like Mr. Butler did the
right thing to me. Mr. Butler,
like many of us, are tired of
having these ATVs and golf
carts running up and down our
roads and lawns. He should be
given a reward instead of being
charged. The noise of the ATVs
is unacceptable.
The child abuse charges
should be against the adult who
permitted the child to operate
the four-wheeler and thus put-
ting the child in danger. Any
adult who puts their child under
the age of 16 on a four-wheeler
should be charged with child
endangerment.
The adult that came to his
door and when told to leave,
pressed his chest against him,
gave him the right to defend
himself.
Any four-wheeler being
driven anywhere other than on
their own property should be
taken and the driver fined
$10,000. The same for golf
carts on, roads not designated
for their use.
I support a ban on the use or
sale of ATVs in Highlands
County.

Impersonator was a special treat rf -


On Feb. 17, I had
the privilege of
attending a concert in
Wauchula put on by
"Elvis and the Danger


Band." I had never seen Elvis
in person so this was a treat
for me. It was at the Historic
City Hall Auditorium in
Wauchula. The place was
packed, and the women in the
audience were shouting for
joy during the performance.
All I can say is that he was
the closest sounding to Elvis
that I've ever heard. He really
put on a good show, with that
down-to-earth, humble, coun-
try boy drawl. A couple of
times I closed my eyes and
could have sworn that it was
Elvis. The band was awe-
some, their music sounded
like the authentic Elvis tunes.

cream. Could I trust him?
"What are they?" I asked.
Dad's head popped up from
under the fender well and he
locked eyes with me. "Why
don't you just try 'em," he
said.
The cookies had a soft crust
and were filled with some
kind of jelly and while I was
not a big fruit cookie eater, I
found them pretty tasty.
"Thanks," I said, picking
up the tire iron and kneeling
beside Dad, who took the tire
iron and spun the lug nuts into
place on the last tire.
"You're welcome. Did you
like them?"
"Yeah, they were good."
"I've always liked Fig

my favorite song.
To top off the


evening, his mother was
there, seeing him perform for
the first time, along with his
sisters. His wife helped with
the scarves, teddy bears and
water to drink between songs.
So I just want to thank the
Danger Band and Elvis for the
complimentary tickets to the
concert. It was an evening I
won't soon forget.
When I was younger, Elvis
was my idol, but as I've got-
ten older, I can and do appre-
ciate who he was as an enter-
tainer. He was raised to
believe in the Lord and even
sang in the church. Watching

"Fig!" I blurted. "Did you
say fig?"

"Yeah." He looked at me
out of the corner of his eye,
and then turned and faced me
full on.
"What's the matter with
figs?" he demanded.
"Well, they uh ... they're uh
..." How could I tell him figs
were old lady fruits? That
would be as good as calling
him an old lady.
"Yes?" He appeared
intensely interested in what I
had to say. He grew up in hard
times and was not a picky
eater, and I'm sure much like
I did as a child, he wandered
around picking and eating
what he could find. More
often than not, that was prob-
ably all he had. I felt fairly
sure that he had probably

fresh figs right off the tree,

"They're good." I said, with
as much sincerity as I could
muster. He grunted in satis-
faction and bent back to the
task at hand.
To this day I have never
eaten a fresh fig, but will still
eat Fig Newtons every chance
I get, and every time I do I
think of that summer after-
noon, rotating tires with my
dad and I have to wonder
what hot cornbread in cold

what else I might be missing.

he would get his band togeth-

the wee hours of the morning.
They say he even got tears in
his eyes on certain songs. He

There will never be another

close as far as his music and
performances, but he was a

Nursing Home, Assisted Living ... topic for Saturday MOAA meeting


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING As the mili-
tary retiree and veteran popu-
lation grows and many of
them reach the time in life
when one may face entering a
nursing home or assisted liv-
ing facility, who will be pay-
ing for it?
Many of the "Over 65" cat-
egory will hope that their
bank accounts and retirement
pay will cover the costs, but
will it?

Nicholson

leads

federal task

force on

combat

benefits
Special to the News-Sun
President Bush has created
a special, inter-agency task
force under the leadership of
Secretary of Veterans Affairs
Jim Nicholson to examine the
latest generation of combat
veterans seeking services and
benefits from the Department
of Veterans Affairs (VA) or
any other federal agency.
Called the "Task Force on
Returning Global War on
Terror Heroes," the task force
consists of the secretaries of
Defense, Labor, Health and
Human Services, Housing
and Urban Development, and
Education, plus the adminis-
trator of the Small Business
Administration and the direc-
tor of the Office of
Management and Budget.
Under the terms of the
executive order creating the
task force, the group has 45
days to: "Identify and exam-
ine existing federal services
that currently are provided to
returning Global War on
Terror service members;"
"Identify existing gaps in
such services;" "Seek recom-
mendations from appropriate
federal agencies on ways to
fill those gaps;" and "Ensure
that appropriate federal agen-
cies are communicating and
cooperating effectively."
Executive secretary of the
task force is retired Rear
Adm. Patrick W. Dunne, VA's
assistant secretary for policy
and planning. Matt Smith,
special assistant to
Nicholson, will serve as the
task force's senior advisor.

Veteran housing
opportunity
dalnges
adapted rules
Special to the News-Sun
A Veterans Administration
circular, 26-06-7, explains
the provisions of the Veterans
Housing Opportunity and
Benefits Act of 2006 regard-
ing implementing specially
adapted housing grant use.
This is a new portion of the
law.
The Housing Act enables
an eligible veteran or active
duty service member to
receive up to a total of three
SAH grants, and extends to
previous grant recipients.
Prior to this law, grant recipi-
ents could only receive the
SAH benefit from the
Veterans Administration one
time, regardless of the grant
amount.
Under the new law, previ-
ous grant recipients cannot
obtain a subsequent grant to
pay for adaptations made
prior to or to reduce an exist-
ing mortgage principal for
properties acquired prior to
June 15, 2006.
The law establishes a


Temporary Residence
Adaptation grant to assist a
veteran in adapting a family
members home to meet the
veterans special needs. This
portion of the law excludes
active service members.
Veterans needing assis-
tance with the application for
adaptive housing grants may
contact the county Veteran
Services Office, 402-6623.


These questions will be the
theme of the program for the
Saturday noon luncheon
meeting of the South Central
Florida Chapter of the
Military Officers Association
of America.
Joanne Cox, executive
assistant of the Health
Care/Long Term Care
Management Division of the
Florida Department of
Veterans Affairs, will address
these issues to the MOAA
members and their guests


when the local group meets at
the Candlelight Restaurant of
the Sebring Sun 'N Lake Golf
and Country Club, announced
retired Air Force Colonel Roy
P. Whitton, Lake Placid, chap-
ter president.
"As the general population
now is living longer as well as
our military veterans, all will
be facing alternatives to home
care by family members,"
Whitton said.
Military retirees, including
veterans, need to know

Second night out
Leaving the Royal
Gorge behind, we headed
north for Glenwood
Springs and drove toward
Aspen and Vail
( www.mappoint.com).
We stopped at a road-
side diner outside of
Aspen for lunch. The
owner showed us pictures
of some of the people
she'd met over the years,
including one of my
favorites, John Denver
(http://www.john-
denver.org/). At dinner,
we met Steve, who spent
his summers riding his
bike around the state of
Colorado. Throughout
our journey, we would
predict the progress Steve
made on his annual trek.
BJ and I wandered
through Aspen; I got a
snowbunny sweatshirt as
a souvenir. For those of
you who know my aver-
sion to cold temperatures,
you'll appreciate the
irony of a snowbunny
anything. We passed
Steve on his bike, headed
for Santa Fe.
Our campsite was at a
ranch east of Glenwood
Springs ( springspool.com/). Our
neighbors were staying at
the Springs for a few
days to soak up the hot
water.
We stopped off at the
Continental Divide mark-
er (http://en.wikipedia.
org/wiki/Continental_Div
ide). The alpine flowers
were in full glory, with
meadows of columbines
and wild blossoms gently
swaying in the breeze
( dowildflowers.com/).
If you can take a trip to
only one place in our
country, Ouray should be
in the top five choices
( orado.com/). We had a
terrific cloudburst just
prior to coming into
Ouray and I decided I
didn't want to try driving
down the mountain in the
dark. Because of the
thunderstorm, it had
taken twice as long as
expected to get up the
mountain.
When we got to Ouray,
we found out that every-
one else had the same
idea find a dry place
to stay for the night.
After our experience with
the hailstorm in
Nebraska, I thought we
could find a portico to
park under and sleep in
the car, if we came up
empty-handed for a room
to stay.
We had our dinner at
the local ice cream shop,
then went to see the
chamber of commerce's
video on the history of
the San Juan Mountain
Range (http://www.
sjma.org/). It was shown
in 180 degrees and show-
cased Ouray in all four
seasons (http://www.our
aycolorado. com/About+0
uray).
One motel owner final-
ly took pity on us, since
it was also supposed to
get cold that night, and
let us use her rumpus
room to sack out. The
family joined us to watch
a movie on television,
sharing our adventures to
date, and then roasting
'smores in the fireplace.
She didn't even charge us
rent because we had to
share facilities with the
family teenagers. We left
the rent on the coffee
table anyway. What a
gift!


SHighlands County has

S ideal conditions for latest

growing trend
By-PATRICIA C. POND
News Sun correspondent
AVON PARK
y" droponic growing is usually described as
the "farm of the future" and considered a
mystical process involving scientists mix-
t ing chemical brews to produce foods that
many people are afraid to eat.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.


Two commercial hydroponic farms
in Highlands County are producing a
wide variety of fruits and vegetables
right here, right now. Anyone can do
it, anywhere, at any time and with a
minimum of effort.
Hydroponics is a method of grow-
ing plants without soil and feeding
them with liquid organic fertilizer. It
is safe, easy and efficient. No other
method results in so much produce in
a small space with so little water.
Virtually any plant that can be
grown in soil can be grown hydro-
ponically. The resulting produce is of
the highest quality and can be picked
at its peak because it is sun-ripened
and fresh from the vine or plant.
* Recently, the development of tow-
ers of stacking pots and nutrient mix-
tures has taken hydroponic growing
to a new level, and this science is
being constantly researched and
improved.

Ideal growing conditions
Highlands County, with its year-
round growing season, is an ideal
place for a beginner to experiment
with hydroponics, and McCracken
Farms is a good place to start. The
farm is a family business, owned and
operated by John and Lois
McCracken and their son Mike
Young. All three enjoy helping peo-
ple get started in hydroponics.
John McCracken emphasized that
no special plants are needed for
hydroponic growing.
"I buy what I can get locally," he
said. "Because we are growing com-
mercially for a U-pick operation, I
look for varieties of strawberries and
tomatoes that give me a long growing
season.".
Currently, McCracken's has two
varieties of Everbearing strawberries
and several varieties of tomatoes,
including Big Boys, Better Boys,
some steak tomatoes and some cherry
tomatoes.
"There is a lot to learn about the


little things that help create ideal
conditions for raising tomatoes,"
McCracken continued. "In the stack-
ers, we put only two tomato plants
per pot; you can stick some onions in
the other two. And plant them high,
at the top of the stacker."
Young, who installed most of the
growing units with the help of his
parents, is now experimenting with a
separate tomato section much higher
from the ground than the stackers.
The planters are true hanging gar-
dens, with trailing vines loaded with
tomatoes.
Young explained that it is impor-
tant to keep plants from touching the
soil. Insects and disease seem to
avoid plants grown in towers, greatly
reducing the need for insecticides.
The less contact plants have with the
soil, the fewer pests they attract.
Commercial farms cover the entire
ground surface with a rubberized
plastic cloth. Home growers can sub-
stitute plastic sheeting or large heavy
gauge trash bags.
"When people come to pick, the
first thing they say is 'It's so clean,"'
Lois McCracken said, adding that no
dirt means no weeds.
"One of the joys of raising plants
in towers is that there is no weeding
because the plants are above ground."
Lois was removing over-ripe fruit
from the strawberry plants as she
spoke.
"Pick off the dark red, mushy
berries," she advised. "Otherwise,
they will attract bugs and pests. If
you don't let berries rot on the vine,
you can avoid the need for insecti-
cide."

No-dirt gardening
Plants are raised in a mixture of
perlite and vermiculite, both natural
minerals mined from the earth.
Perlite is a volcanic mineral that
holds moisture and nutrients, making
them available to plant roots. It also
holds air, which is a benefit to plant


News-Sun photo by PATRICIA POND
John McCracken, one of the owners of McCracken Farms, shows how high
the new section of tomatoes is from the ground. The pots have been raised
eight feet off the ground to allow the vines to extend without touching any
soil. The yield has been very high. 'You have to keep experimenting,'
McCracken said.

sprouted from seeds. Lois

roots. It is sterile with a neutral pH.
Vermiculite is a lightweight, inor-
ganic, highly absorbent material used
as a filler. Used in combination, these
two materials help deliver everything
a plant needs to survive: water, nutri-
ents and oxygen.
SPlants grown hydroponically use
very little water compared to tradi-
tional in-ground farming. At the com-
mercial farms, plants are automatical-
ly fed a liquid fertilizer solution three
times every 24 hours for about three
minutes. Each application requires
only one quart of water per stack a
total of three quarts a day for the 20
plants in each stack.
Neither of the local commercial


growers uses a recirculating system,
so little water is used compared to
soil farming that it is not necessary.
Young said that recirculating water
could also cause problems because if
any touched the ground, it could pick
up a pest or fungus and transmit it
back to the plants.
Home growers need not install an
elaborate automatic system to enjoy
the benefits of hydroponically-growni
produce. For starters, one or two i
stacking towers can be fed manually.
Liquid fertilizer can be mixed in any
easily available container with a tight
lid. Then it is just a matter of pouringi
a quart of the mixture into the dis-
penser three times a day. I
Young's advice to first-time grow-
ers is to "keep it simple" and don't be
afraid to experiment with different
types and varieties of plants.
Later on, home growers can add an
electric kit to the Hydro-Stacker if
they want to expand the number of
their towers. Hydro-Stacker markets a
unit that will feed up to 14 stacks at a
time and complete kits can be pur-
chased online. They recommend
using a clean 38 gallon trash can for
a reservoir.
The more mechanically inclined
can rig a locally available sub-
mersible pump with a timer.
It is very easy to connect manual
units to the auto-feed system.
Hydro-Stacker is a patented hydro-
ponic vertical gardening system with
growing units made of dense and
durable Styrofoam. Each section con-
tains four plants and can be stacked
five on a pole. This gives each
Hydro-Stacker tower room for 20
plants and takes up just four square
feet of ground space.
McCracken Farms sells Hydro-
Stacker units comprised of five grow-
ing pots with diffuser and the poles
needed to mount and support them.
The cost is $70 per tower and
includes perlite, vermiculite and
enough nutrient mixture to feed each
stack for one growing season;
McCracken Farms is open seven
days a week from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Take SR 17 to Powerline Road,
then turn onto Harnage, and look for
the tractors and the house on your
right.

hydroponic stackers can be found at

Mike Young shows Neil Pond an over-ripe strawberry that needs to be
removed from the plant. 'If you let berries rot on the vine, they will attract
bugs and pests,' Young said. Pond had just purchased his first Hydro-
Stacker unit and Young took him through all the steps of growing.

DIVERSIONS


Many beautiful women gather for tea


Great memories
shared between grandparents
and grandchildren are treas-
ures, especially when shared
with inspiring company.
Recently, my 12-year-old
granddaughter Bianca, and I
attended the Ridge Area Arc's
tea party at the luxurious
Sebring Resort. The setting
was elegant, as we sat sipping
refreshing raspberry ice tea,
while munching on delicate
scones and cream
pastries beneath a canopy
supported by multiple chan-
deliers.
Sitting at table seven were
a number of beautiful, inter-
esting women who shared
inspiring stories. One so
moved by the plight of girls,
is in the process of raising


e e






funds for the arts and to pur-
chase a building to accommo-
date young girls.
The other was celebrating
her birthday, and glowed in
appreciation as she opened
her many cards. There was
also that classy woman from
Fort Meyrs who lost her


mother to ovarian cancer, and
in an effort to raise further
awareness about the disease,
has raised thousands of dol-
lars for cancer research.
Another guest at table seven
was in the final stages of dec-
orating her new home. There
was also the glamorous,
mayor's wife.
Of course we could not for-
get the guest of honor, the
effervescent, eight times pub-
lished novelist Nancy Cohen,
who spoke about her Bad Hair
Day series and her more
recent novel "Perish By
Pedicure."
How could I forget the
many prizes that were won by
the appreciative guest includ-
ing my grand-daughter.
Winners were sent to choose


their prizes, or wnicn mere
were many. I liked that idea.
Congratulation to Linda
Wells for organizing such a
wonderful event, a truly fabu-
lous time was had by all espe-
cially the guest at table seven.

A frown takes more effort than a smile


Mark Twain said, "A smile
is understood in all lan-
guages." I have learned this
- true. I have also learned that a
frown is understood in all lan-
guages. A smile can lift a per-
son's spirit and encourage
others, but no one is encour-
aged by a frown.
I understand that it also
takes less facial muscles to
smile than to frown. Frowns
can make unwanted wrinkles
in your face.
The dictionary states, "A
frown is to contract the brow
as in displeasure or concen-
tration; to look on with dis-
taste or disapproval. A facial
expression in which the cor-
ners of the mouth turn down-
ward, indicating displeasure."
A frown quickly shows dis-
pleasure or negative reaction.
You can speak without a
word by using a smile or a


frown. Example:
"How was your
day?" No need to
use words just a a
facial expression of
a smile or a frown *p S
will give the answer.
Also, I have
learned that a frown
is a natural reaction
given without much Verl
practice, but a smile
is a conscious reac- Spir
tion from within. Vita
The same diction-
ary states, "A smile is Verlon
a facial expression in
which the corners of the
mouth turn upward, indicat-
ing pleasure."
Now let me ask you a ques-
tion, which do you prefer, a
frown or a smile? Notice that
when you leave a person who
smiles you are refreshed, but
when you leave a person who


?**


Ion's
itual
imin
Carrell


frowns you are
resentful. This
means that a smile
or a frown can be
contagious and
quickly effect oth-
ers.
So, when you see
someone without a
smile, give them
one of yours. When
you see someone with
a frown make an
effort to see it change
into a smile. Anyone
can be a negative per-
son, but it requires


character to become a positive
person who refreshes others.
Paul stated, "I have learned
... to be content," based on
Philippines 4:11. Notice that
he was not always a contented
person but he learned to be
content. Being content is not
normal, but it is a choice.


Each day you must choose to
be content.,. One more ques-
tion,, how many contented
Christians. do. you know?
It is important for
Christians to show on their
faces what is in their hearts.
The world needs to see some-
thing in our lives they do not
have. What will people see on
our faces this week, a smile or
a frown? Practice it now,
smile, see it did not hurt you.
Now let's put on our happy
faces and go tell Lake Placid,
Sebring and all of Highlands
County. You will be glad you
did.

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

The award winning Sounds
of Sebring Barbershop
Quartet was formed in
January 1999. They have per-
formed locally and through-
out the state, entertaining


many groups with a varied
package of four-part harmony
and comedy. This quartet was
instrumental in founding the
Sebring Heartland
Harmonizers Chorus in 2002.
On March 18, 2002, eight
members of the Polk County
Barbershop Chapter, Winter
Haven, met to discuss the
feasibility of forming a new
chapter in Highlands County.
The meeting was spearheaded
by members of the quartet
"Sounds of Sebring," District
Senior Quartet Champions,
who volunteered to take the
leadership role in establish-
ing a new chapter.
The name Heartland
Harmonizers was chosen for
the new chorus. By the fall of
2007, the membership had
grown to 65. Work began
immediately on presenting a
show to introduce the new
chorus to the community, and
to raise money for operating
expenses. After paying all


expenses, including purchas-
ing risers and uniforms for
the chorus, a scholarship was
donated to the music depart-
ment of Sebring High School.

Who is Jesus? The Bible tells us the 'Word' is Jesus


By RON KINCAID
Special to the News-Sun
Jesus is, was and always
will be exactly who the Bible
says he is. John 1:1 says, In
the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God." John
1:3 says, "Through Him all
things were made." John 1:14
says, "The Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among
us, who came from the Father
full of grace and truth." John
1:17 says, "For the law was
given through Moses; grace
and truth came through Jesus
Christ. No one has ever seen
God, but God the one and
only, who is at the Father's
side, has made him known. "
Matthew 3:16 says, "As
soon as Jesus was baptized, he
went up out of the water. At
that moment heaven was
opened, and he saw the Spirit
of God descending like a dove
and lighting on him. And a


voice from heaven said, 'This
is my Son whom I love; with
him 1 am well pleased.'"
This is telling us very
plainly that the "Word" is
Jesus, that he is the son of
God. That all things that were
made were made by him. The
word became flesh (Jesus was
born to Mary). He came to the
lost sheep of Israel. He was
the Messiah that the Jewish
people were waiting for. But
in spite of the prophecy of his
coming in Isaiah 9:6 the Bible
tells us, they knew him not.
Colossians 1:15 says, "He is
the image of the invisible
God, the first born over all
creation. For by him all things
were created; things in
Heaven and on Earth, visible
and invisible, whether thrones
or powers or rulers or author-
ities: All things were created
by him and for him. "
Genesis 17:1 says. "When
Abram was ninety-nine years


old, the Lord appeared to him
and said, I am God Almighty,
walk before me and be blame-
less." The Bible tells us, no
one can see the Father and
live. Who did Abram see?
God the son Jesus Christ.
John 8:58 says "I tell you
the truth, Jesus answered,
before Abram was born, I
am." In Daniel's dream,
Daniel 9:25, the angel Gabriel
told Daniel, "Know and
understand this. From the
issuing of the decree to
restore and rebuild Jerusalem
until the anointed one (Jesus)
the ruler, comes, there will be
seven sevens, and 62 sevens,"
that would be 7x7 = 49 plus
62 x 7 = 434 49 and 434 =
483 years. Jesus was anointed
in 27 AD exactly 483 years
after the decree was issued.
Daniel 7:13 says (Daniel's
Vision) "In my vision at
night I looked and there
before me was one like a son


of man, (Jesus), coming with
the clouds of Heaven. He
approached the ancient of
days (God) and was led into
his presence. He was given
authority, glory and sovereign
power: all peoples, Nations
and men of every language
worshipped him. His domin-
ion is an everlasting dominion
that will not pass away, and
his Kingdom is one that will
never be destroyed." This is
Jesus going to God in heaven
after his resurrection to
receive all power on Earth
and in Heaven. He was made
King of kings and Lord of
Lords.
Matthew 28:16 (Jesus
appearing to the disciples
before his final ascension)
says. "Then the 11 disciples
went to Galilee, to the moun-
tain where Jesus had told
them to go." Matthew 28:18
says, "Then Jesus came to
them and said, all authority in


Heaven and on earth has been
given unto me." Thus fulfill-
ing Daniel's prophecy.
Why did Jesus have to die?
Because the wages of sin is
death. All men are sinners; we
are born sinners, (part of the
original sin). God created us
for his pleasure, for his fami-
ly; and loved us so much that
he was willing to die for us.
But God and his son Jesus are
spirits and cannot die. So God
sent his son Jesus to be born a
human so he could die for our
sins. After, he was resurrected
in a glorious new body and
led the way so all who believe
in him and invite Jesus into
their hearts will receive his
holy spirit. Ephesians
1:13-19 says, "Having
believed, you were marked in
him with a seal, the promised
Holy Spirit, who is a deposit
guaranteeing our inheritance
until the redemption of those
who are God's possession to


the Praise of His Glory."
The Bible says Deposit,
which tells us there is a con-
tract. Jesus has already done
his part. (He has offered ever-
lasting, eternal life). Your part
is to keep God's command-
ments and live according to
the two great commandments
of Jesus (The word is Love).
So who is Jesus? Our
savior, our redeemer, our
King in Heaven, on Earth and
the new Earth, the only name
that can guarantee Salvation.
Not only believe in him, but
invite him into your heart and
receive his Holy Spirit.

Ron Kincade of Sebring is a
born again Christian. He is an
active Bible student in Sebring
where he lives for the winter
and an active member of an
Anglican church in New Bruns-
wick, Canada. He believes writ-
ing is part of the ministry that
God gave him to do.

Heiko and Kay Burklin and their sons Stephan, Yannick and Micah have been spread-
ing the gospel since 1995. They will be attending the family dinner at Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Heiko Burklin is expected to talk about his work
for the Lord in Germany.
Heiko Burklin, missionary to Germany, will
speak at Avon Park First Presbyterian Church


EVENTS
Continued from 4B
On Sunday, April 1, St.
Agnes will be the venue for
the Lake Wales Chorale's
Italian Masters concert. The
Chorale and accompanying
symphony are well known in
the Lake Wales area and
have selected St. Agnes in
Sebring for their first out-
reach venue. Ticket sales
will be advertised.


AVON PARK Heiko
Burklin, a World Witness
Associate Reformed
Presbyterian (ARP) commis-
sioned missionary to Berlin,
Germany, began work there
with his wife Kay and sons
Stephan, Yannick and Micah,
in 1995. They specialized in
church-planting, focusing on
East Berlin.
After having started three
church groups in some of the
older, more traditional areas
of the city, the Burklins, with
their team, including one
other couple with the ARP
mission board, began a new
thrust in 2000, with a focus on
youth. This new project was
begun in a more contempo-
rary district in Marzahn,
where the Burklins lived.


The Burklins, with their
team, began to plant a youth
church in Marzahn, a far-east-
ern district of Berlin with
some 160,000 inhabitants in
concrete slab buildings with
only a handful of small
churches. Under Communist
influence, an entire genera-
tion grew up with little or no
exposure to Christianity.
The ministry and the team
had grown and began to flour-
ish. Then, last August, Heiko
and his family returned to
Lake Wales, where they are
members of the First
Presbyterian ARP Church,
and the youth church in
Marzahn is now led by a
German pastor.
Heiko and his wife Kay
will be attending the family


dinner at Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church ARP at 6
p.m. Wednesday in fellowship
hall. Esther Circle will host
the family dinner. Place set-
tings, beverages and desserts
will be provided. Bring a dish
to share and enjoy a lovely
meal together.
Following the dinner,
Heiko will speak about his
time in Germany and the
work being done there for the
Lord. A free-will offering will
be collected for the Jubilee
Birthday Women now serving
in Germany.
The Avon Park First
Presbyterian Church is at 215
E. Circle St., on the shore of
Lake Verona, with the
entrance to Fellowship Hall
on LaGrande Street.

55th Annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring


Carswell is


first female


Fan of Year

Shares honor with
David Schumacher
By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING For the first
time, a woman has been
tapped for the Sebring
International Raceway's Stan
Durance Fan of the Year
award. Penny Carswell of
Morgantan, N.C., will share
the title with David
Schumacher of Wellington.
Each called it the ultimate
honor.
Both of this year's recipi-
ents have been at Sebring for
the past 37 years, however
the manner in which they
began their love affair with
America's oldest sports car
endurance classic couldn't be
more different.
Carswell attended her first
Race when she was just 11
years old, after her sister con-
vinced their father to bring
'them to Sebring.
"We weren't allowed to
leave the Paddock; my dad
said it was too wild out
there," she said.
It wasn't until several years
later when their father did-
n't attend the Race that
Carswell and her sister ven-
tured outside the Paddock
and found out what her father
meant.
"I said, 'Dad was .right,'
but it turned out OK because
we stayed with a bunch of
friends," she said.
Over the years, Carswell
has come to the Races with-
out fail. There were times
when she brought other peo-
ple, but sometimes she came
by herself and slept in her car.
Carswell's loyalty to
attending the Race is so
ardent that she said her mar-
riage plans actually hinged on
a vow from her fiance that
she be allowed to attend the
12 hours.

Marco Werneir set a new qualifying record and led an Audi sweep of the front row Thursday in qualifying for Saturday's 12
Hours of Sebring.






Audis up front


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING It comes as little sur-
prise that there will be a pair of Audis on
the front row Saturday for the Mobil 1 12
Hours of Sebring. Less than a half sec-
ond separates the No. 2 TDI R10 of
Emanuele Pirro, Marco Werner and
Frank Biela and the No. 1 team car of
Dindo Capello, Allan McNish and Tom
Kristensen.
In scoring his first ever pole at
Sebring, Werner turned a 1:44.974 a
new track record Thursday afternoon.
In fact, there were qualifying records set
in three of the four classes.
"I think we are very prepared," said
Werner of the Audi AG team.
Werner, who averaged 126.889 mph
on his pole-winning lap, said the team
waited to send out the No. 2 car, hoping


Starting grid, 6D
that traffic would clear some sand left on
the track during the previous GT qualify-
ing session and give the cleanest shot at
getting the best time.
The looming LMP2
battle between Porsche
and Acura was never
more apparent than it was
during the prototype
qualifying, as Timo
Bernhard in the No. 7
Penske Racing Porsche
Werner RS Spyder and David
Brabham in the No. 9
Highcroft Racing Acura took turns best-
ing each other in finding the quickest
way around the 3.72-mile circuit.
. In the end it was Bernhard's time of
1:46.046 (125.608 mph) that took the


LMP2 pole in yet another track record. It
was the ninth pole for Bernhard, who has
registered one victory at Sebring, a class
win driving a Porgche for Alex Job
Racing.
Bernhard, from Hamburg, Germany,
said that like Werner, he had waited to go
out and run his qualifying laps.
"I waited a long time for a clear lap.
When I finally did, the first one was very
good," he said.
Following him was Brabham at
1:47:019. Although this actually is the
fourth time at Sebring for the Acura
teams in as many months, the new ARX-
01a chassis was officially introduced
Thursday afternoon.
Developed by Honda Performance
Development, it marks the first time

qualifying
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Doug
Peterson of Bonita Springs
captured his first-career
SCCA Pro Racing SPEED
World Challenge GT
Championship pole Thursday
in spectacular fashion and
will lead the field at the start
of today's race.
Driving the No. 87
Chevrolet Corvette, Peterson
needed -only one flying lap
around the historic 3.7-mile
circuit to turn a 2:07.679
(104.324 mph), shattering the
year-old qualifying mark held
by Leighton Reese by 1.085
seconds.
"Being in this position
feels pretty scary," Peterson
admitted. "I was working
toward this lap
since last Tom '
October. We've RAsM
done a lot of
testing and Touring
study of tapes 11:05 a.m.
with my team-
mate Lou GT
Gigliotti. It was 4:45 p.m.
just a fantasy
lap."
Fellow Corvette pilot Eric
Curran will start second.
Curran actually held the pro-
visional pole for just under
five seconds with his lap of
2:07.744 before being
trumped by Peterson by 0.065
seconds.
Peterson's team leader Lou
Gigliotti was third quickest in
his No. 28 Chevrolet Corvette
with a time of 2:08.598.
Gigliotti appeared to be on
his way to victory at Sebring
in 2006 before a mechanical
problem sidelined the three-
time series Champion.
Andy Pilgrim, who hopes
to break his streak of three-
straight runner-up finishes at
Sebring, was fourth fastest in
his No. 8 Cadillac CTS-V
with a lap of 2:08.939

Sebring's Lowrance riding high in Panoz Racing Series GTS class


News-Sun photo by SCOTT DRESSEL
Charlie Lowrance was the fastest car on the track during both qualifying sessions for today's
Panoz Racing Series race.


By JACK HARRIS
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Charlie Lowrance is guaran-
teed a spot on the podium for sure unless both
cars fail to finish in Friday's Panoz Series
GTS class.
Lowrance, who moved to Sebring in 1989,
has been racing only three years.
"I went through the Panoz school at Sebring
and I enjoyed that then began racing in their
GT series, and now am in the GTS series," he
said. "I thank Dr. (Don) Panoz for letting me
play with his toys."
His GTS model is owned by Panoz Auto
Development, and he's been making it fly
around the historic Sebring circuit this week.
"He had some blistering laps on Tuesday,"


Joel Grewett, GTS program manager, said.
"On Wednesday, I threw him out there on
some junk tires and he still was faster than
everybody else in the GT class."
Thursday, Lowrance had some good tires on
his car and made the most of it, turning in the
fastest time in qualifying for today's 45-
minute race, which takes the green flag at 2
p.m.
"Charlie's car is a 2002 model and we have
had to replace a leaky differential gasket, put a
few other parts in it, tighten up the front end,
and keep air in the tires to keep Charlie off the
wall."
Grewett said the goal this year is to make up

visiting Booker.The senior went the distance, pitching a no-hitter and also blasted a three-run home run
to cap off the one-man show.
15 YEARS AGO
March 17, 1992: The Lady Blue Streaks softball team atoned for an earlier 10-3 shellacking by top-
ping the Lady Red Devils, 5-0. All five runs were tallied in the third inning off Avon Park's Christie Hipps

Sedlock held Sebring down in the fourth,
but ran into a little trouble in the fifth.
Blue Streak J.T. Tomlinson drew a one-out
walk and moved to second on Ryan Thorlton's
single to right. Abeln was hit by a pitch to load
the bases and Nick Maloyed brought two runs
in with a single to make it a 5-2 contest.
.Sebring threatened again in the seventh,
with Tomlinson singling and scoring on a two-


out triple to right-center by Maloyed, but
Sedlock mustered up just enough to register
the final out and even up the Avon Park season
record at 7-7 overall and 3-3 in district play.
"It's been a long week and we just didn't
come ready to play," Sebring head coach
Hoppy Rewis said after his team's second loss
of the season to fall to 14-2. "Any time
(Sedlock) is on the mound, you're not just
going to go up there and hit him. He tired a bit
in the fifth, but he had enough left to finish the
job."

55th Annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring

Robertsons fighting through troubles

Husband and wife teamed with Luyendyk Jr. in Panoz for 12 Hours


By JACK HARRIS
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING A cram course in car handling
usually is not a formula for winning the 12
Hours of Sebring.
But that's just what Robertson Racing -
which features the husband and wife driving
team of David and Andrea Robertson faces
Saturday because the team is three months
behind in shaking down the new Panoz
Esperante GTLM it has entered in the GT2
class.
"We'd be a lot more competitive (without
the problems)," David Robertson said
Wednesday.
Also, the car has had a lot of handling prob-
lems, he said.
Why the late delivery? He hinted that the
Panoz people are spread too thin because of
more emphasis placed on Champ and IMSA
Lites programs.
He laughed, and added, "The sad truth is
we'll be the only team out there improving as
the Race goes on."
The car was scheduled for delivery in
September but didn't arrive until Dec. 31.
"The late delivery put our training program
way behind," said Andrea Robertson, who,
along with her husband David, will drive the
Esperante. They have experienced driving
help in Arie Luyendyk Jr., son of the two-time
Indy winner.
They also have Dick Barbour, a Sebring
winner and car owner, managing the team.
The Robertsons he's from Arizona, she
from Ohio met in Detroit when he was a
pilot for Spirit Airlines and she was dispatch
manager. They wed in the early 1990s, now
live in Ray, about 40 miles north of Detroit,
and began sports-car racing in 1999.
Prior to competing in the American Le Mans
Series, the Robertsons have experience in
Spec and Formula Fords and the Panoz Racing
series. Although they are rookies in the 12
Hours, they are familiar with the course, com-
peting here many times in SCCA events. They
also practiced in their GT-2 car in January and
February.
"When this race is over, we'll look at the

data and then we'll need for both of us to get
in the car hour after hour," David Robertson
said. "We know how to do it, but for now
we've run out of time."
Andrea Robertson smiled when it was sug-
gested it might take a miracle to win the class
"Or, lots of luck," she said. "We're a rookie
team and underdogs.
"Arie is our best driver because he has a lot
of experience. We have a long way to go but
nothing is impossible."
She said the team has noticed the car does-
n't want to full speed through Turns 14 to 15.
"There is still a little quirkiness with the car,
but I think all of us drivers will just have to
adapt with the car right now."
"This will not be our good year," David
Robertson said. "We'll do a lot better next
year, but it's fun to be a part of (the 12 Hours).
Sebring is so much part of racing history."
No matter what the outcome Saturday,
David Robertson promised the team will be
ready for the Bell Isle race in Detroit on Sept.
1, which is the next-to-last race in the ALMS
series.


SPEED
Continued from 1D
(103.304 mph), 0.031-second
ahead of teammate and
defending series champion
Lawson Asenbach in the No.
1 Cadillac.
All of the top five quali-
fiers were faster than the
existing record.
Sebring's Al Wicht, a series
rookie, qualified 29th in his
No. 03 Chevrolet Camaro.

Altenburg claims
Touring pole
Jeff Altenburg will start
from the pole for the Touring
Car Championship alongside
teammate Randy Pobst, mak-
ing it an all-Mazda front row
for the season opener.
Clocking a time of
2:19.951 (95.176 mph),
Altenburg earned his second
career pole, his first since
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
in 2003.


According to Altenburg,
the No. 72 Mazda 6 was per-
fect out of the box.
"This is the best car for this
track that I've ever had,"
Altenburg said. "This car is
absolutely hooked up. Credit
Sachs Shocks, credit Craig
Nagler, engineer and team
owner for Tri-Point, and cred-
it the Mazda 6 for being a
great starting point.
"It's about time. We've
been running this series for
awhile and we've always had
good equipment and a good
team. Admittedly, I've had
trouble getting myself wicked
up for qualifying and it's
kinda my race style that I start
out sort of conservative and I
can start pushing myself hard-
er toward the end of the race."
After finishing runner-up in
the Manufacturers' and
Drivers' Championship for
two years in a row, the impor-
tance of a Mazda 1-2 on the
grid is not lost on Altenburg.
"This is absolutely huge,


we are now leading the
Manufacturers' Points, I am
now leading the Drivers'
Championship, at least for a
day. The Manufacturers'
Championship is the main
thing, but if we can take home
the Drivers' Championship at
the same time, then all the
better."
Pobst turned out a time of
2:20.052 in the No. 73 car
shortly after his teammate set
the quickest lap.
Acura newcomer Kuno
Wittmer is proving his worth
at RealTime Acura as his No.
44 Acura RSX is the highest-
placing Acura on the grid with
a time of 2:20.849.
Seth Thomas qualified a
career-best fourth in his No.
38 Bimmerworld BMW 325i
in 2:21.164 and defending
SPEED Touring Car
Champion Pierre Klienubing
completed the top five in his
No. 1 Acura TSX.

FAN
Continued from 1D
"In 1985, we were in North
Carolina. He proposed to me
and I told'him, 'I'd love to
marry you, but you have to
promise to let me go to the 12
Hours of Sebring in Florida
every year,' and when he said
yes, so did I," she said.
Carswell said that the 12
Hours of Sebring to her actu-
ally was a blend of every-
thing, from the ambiance of
the Race, to being with
friends, to watching the cars
and in the nearly four decades
of attending races she has met
lots of famous drivers.
"I met Steve McQueen, I
met Bruce Jenner when he
was'here and I was invited to
Mario Andretti's victory party
when I was 11 or 12," she
said.
Unlike Carswell,
Schumacher had a rather
inauspicious first Race expe-
rience, but it seemed as
though every pitfall turned
out to be a blessing in dis-
guise.
"Actually, my first Race I
got caught trying to sneak in,"
he said.
He had been under some
blankets in the back of a van
with a cooler full of beer, but
they were stopped because the
spare tire mounted on top of
the vehicle had been torn off
as they passed beneath the
roof of the ticket booth at the
front gate.
"I heard some voices out-
Sside the van and then all of a
sudden they were pulling the
blanket off and hauled me
out," he said.
The authorities ultimately
released Schumacher and his
friends and they were still
able to see the Race that
remains his favorite to this
day.
"It was 1970, the year
Mario Andretti drove that 512
Ferrari to beat Steve
McQueen by about 20 sec-
onds," he said.
That's when he started
coming to the Race, but it
-wasn't until several years
Slater a chain of events put
Schumacher to work for the
track.
Again, it was quite by acci-
dent.
"We were waiting in line
and I said to my brother, 'If
we have to sit out here and
wait we won't get our regular


'Actually, my first Race I got caught

trying to sneak in.'

space by the Chicane,'" he
said.
It was then Schumacher's
brother had a bright idea -
he would try to use his influ-
ence to get them in through
the competitor's gate.
Through some smooth talking
they got a wonderful spot ...
until the next morning when
security came around check-
ing credentials.
"They took my brother over
to Race Control. He was gone
for quite a while and when he
came back he looked at me
and said, 'Dave, we're work-
ing for them now.' So we
started doing promotional
stuff and we've been doing it
ever since," he said.
Now, he's known in south
Florida as "That Sebring
Guy," handing out copies of
the Countdown, putting up
posters in store windows and
helping with Race promotion-
al activities in different parts
of the Palm Beach area.
A teacher in the Palm
Beach County School System,
Schumacher displays a poster
in his classroom.
One year, he was serving as
a varsity baseball coach at
Palm Beach Gardens High
School but ended up with a
game the night before the
Race. His solution? He drove
directly from the ballgame to
the track, still in uniform.


"There I was with my cleats
and everything. A lot people
were looking at me," he said.
Both Carswell and
Schumacher said being Fans
of the Year was a very special
honor. But their plans for the
week were, well, to be fans.
"We're going to do our


power walk. We'll load up a
12 pack and walk around the
track talking with the fans and
seeing the sights,"
Schumacher said.
Carswell said she will
enjoying the Race with
friends and family at the
McGruff's encampment.
"This is a place where you
can come once a year, see
some awesome racing, get
together with your friends and
have a wonderful time," she
said.

55th Annual Mobil 1 1 Hours of Sebring


FRONT
Continued from 1D
Acura has entered the
American Le Mans Series as a
full-fledged factory effort in
race car design and develop-
ment.
"This car expands our pro-
gram involvement beyond our
traditional engine-only focus
into chassis research and
development," said HPD
President Robert Clark.
Of the three teams,
Highcroft Racing and
Andretti Green Racing will
run the chassis.
A third record fell with the
2:02.439 (108.789 mph)
turned in by Jamie Melo in
the bright red GT2 Risi


Competizione Ferrari 430 GT.
It was on his first flying lap in
qualifying he turned in an ini-
tial quick time, shaving sever-
al thousandths of a second off
it in the second go-round.
Later in the session, Melo
had to lock up the tires, flat-
spotting at least one of them.
According to ALMS rules, the
Houston-based team can
replace one without penalty.
Replacing more would put the
car at the back of the grid for
Saturday's endurance classic.
"We will wait for a report
from our tire representatives
at Michelin before a decision
is made," he said.
Melo said there was "a big
difference in the track" from
last year and that the Ferrari
was "very sensitive" to it.


The Fast Four

LMPl/Overall Pole


Defending champions
Corvette will be on the pole in
GT1. Jan Magnussen set the
fast time 1:57.061
(113.7.87 mph) despite put-
ting just two laps in the books
in the No. 3.
"Everything went well. The
first lap was my fastest. After
the second lap we figured we
weren't going to improve," he
said.
The prototype session was-
n't without incident. It was
red flagged for a time after
Jon Field slid his new No. 27
Creation/Judd into the tire
wall at Turn 17. The area was
not a good one for the
Intersport team. Field's team-
mate Richard Berry crashed
his car in almost the same
spot during the IMSA Lite

Things didn't improve later
for the Intersport team, either.
In addition to both cars hitting
the Turn 17 tire wall, a sudden
squall hit the track late in the
afternoon, ripping half the
awning off the transporter and
dousing the cars and the team
members that were trying to
cover them in the wall of rain.
"We have had better days,"
said one drenched crew mem-

into the transport.

St. Patrick's Day


HIGH
Continued from 1D
for last year, when Lowrance
had to watch the race after his
car developed transmission
problems.
Grewett gave Lowrance the
high praise every drives loves
to hear: "Every time he has
gone out, he's gone faster."
Lowrance said he's very
happy with the car.
"It's almost like driving a
Cadillac out there, but it does-
n't have an air conditioner it,


though," he said. "I'm real
thankful to have the opportu-
nity to participate out here,
and I praise
God for that."
That' s
apparently
evident with a
"Jesus Saves"
sticker on the
car's front.
Lowrance Lowranc'e
attends Grace
Baptist Church in Sebring.
After being a fire captain
with the Miami-Dade Fire
Department for 29 years,


Lowrance moved here to start
a business Signs Now -
but he subsequently sold it
and is retired.
He and his wife Susan have
three offspring and she has
three children from a previous
marriage. "They're all out of
the house now. They're off
the family the payroll," he
said with a laugh
Asked his age, he smiled
and said, "I'm as old as this
place," gesturing toward the
Race course and referring to
the first 12 Hours of Sebring
in 1952.

Gerado Bonilla celebrates becoming a two-time winner at
Sebring Thursday after taking an IMSA Lite victory in his
Elan DP02 on the circuit he considers his home
track. The Orlando resident led the race flag to flag, sur-
viving a couple of full course yellow flags in the 30
minute sprint. He'd taken the pole, turning in a time of
2:03.633, which translates into 107.738 miles per hour
in his 200-horsepower machine. Bonilla, an instructor at
the Skip Barber Racing School was a winner last year in
the Star Mazda Series debut at Sebring as well.
