Race goes green in more ways than one


Perfect weather allows for festive celebration of speed, St. Patrick's Day

SEBRING Credit the
leprechaun.
After torrential downpours
Thursday night and almost all
day on Friday kept fans under
shelter at Sebring
International Raceway,
Saturday brought crystal-clear
skies and perfect weather for-
the 55th running of the Mobil
1 12 Hours of Sebring.
With Mother Nature finally
cooperating, track and
American Le Mans Series
officials went all out to cele-
brate the Race and St.
Patrick's Day the most
notable examples being a
green-bearded leprechaun
(played by Sebring's John
O'Sullivan, who came com-
plete with his own pot of gold
beads) helping to start the
Race, a bagpipe corps march-
- ing down the front stretch


prior to the green flag and
even shamrocks painted on
the checkerboard start-finish
line.
Not to mention the 60.000
or so strands of green beads

Even ALNIS founder and
Sebring International

Panoz got into the Irish spirit,
sporting a string of those
beads around his neck as he
walked through the Paddock
on his way to watch some of
the action from his suite.

show anybody anything,"

"They smiled on us today
after they dumped on us yes-

great event and great weather
and it's the right temperature
for the cars and the drivers."
"It's absolutely perfect,
especially after the deluge of
Thursday -andl Friday,"
Raceway Communications
Director Ken Breslauer said.
"It's making up for it today."
The rain actually turned out
to be a benefit for the fans,
keeping down the dust and
cleaning off the track, which
made for better watching and
better racing for everyone
involved.
The action on the track in
the early stages was proof,
with a lot of tight racing as
the field tried to keep up with
the two diesel-powered Audi
R10s.


"Even though it's a 34-car
field, I haven't seen this much
nose-to-tail racing for quite a
while," Breslauer said.
The improved weather
brought fans out in droves on
Saturday, as the Raceway
turned into the equivalent of a
large city with more than
100,000 fans expected.
"We were down yesterday
(Friday) because of the
weather, but hopefully we'll
make it up today," Breslauer
said of the attendance.
"We'll be close to the
record."
Panoz said that the 12
Hours is a great celebration
and a great weekend, espe-
cially this year.
"The county and the city
have been a great supporter
all these years and it's an his-
toric event in the United
States," he said. "The fans
come from everywhere."

Law enforcement give disorderly fans 'assistance'


By KEVIN J. SHUTT
kevin. shutt@newssun.com
SEBRING Rubbing is racing.
Bumping a deputy while intoxicated
is criminal.
Highlands County Sheriff's
Deputy J.P. Fane said 32 people
required "assistance" from the sever-
al law enforcement agencies that kept
the peace at Sebring International
Raceway Friday night and Saturday
morning.
"Assistance" was Fane's
euphemistic way of saying arrests.
The arrested consisted of outstand-
ing warrants, disorderly conduct,'
under-aged drinking, possession of


marijuana, theft and driving under the
influence arrest.
"He wasn't capable of paying
attention," Fane said of Jason
Bareno, 31, who allegedly bumped
into Lt. Jess Purvis' unmarked vehi-
cle.
The accident, at slow speed in
Green Park, was the only DUI, Fane
said. There were no injuries and only
minor damage.
Fane didn't have historical data for
comparison with years past, however
he noticed more families.
"The Race is returning to its
roots," he said, explaining that organ-
izers and the sheriff's office have


made concerted efforts to keep the.
race safe.
The following individuals were
arrested for marijuana James
Anderson, 49; Donald Baker, 41;
Matthew Bradshaw, 25; Alexander
Carballeyra, 21; James Hall, 49;
Brandon Haney, 25; Landis Lyons,
26; John Mackenzie, 25; Larry
Moore, 47; Williams Russell, 52;
Nicholas Westcott, 24.

IP threatened with public records lawsuit


By MATT MURPHY
matt.murphy@newssun.com
LAKE PLACID The town of Lake
Placid has been threatened with a law-
suit for allegedly not complying with
state public records laws.
Dr. Bruce Borkosky, a Sebring psy-
chologist, is requesting a copy of the
Lake Placid's water utilities database.
He said the town is violating several
parts of the Florida public records
statute by not giving him electronic
copies of the utilities database.
"I'm exercising my constitutional
right to open government," Borkosky
said. "The government is supposed to
bend over backwards to make itself
open. The statute and the case law is
absolutely clear. It really makes me
wonder what, if anything, they're trying
to hide."
Lake Placid Utilities Director Gary
Freeman said his department has tried


'The government is

supposed to bend over
backwards to make

itself open.'
DR. BRUCE BORKOSKY

to give Borkosky the records he's
requesting, but the town doesn't have
the technology available to give the
records to him electronically without
incurring a large cost.
"He wants information from cus-
tomer billing, history and data on each
customer, and that's fine and good,"
Freeman said. "But the system that we
have is an old system and we can't give
him that (information) electronically."
Freeman said he would have to go to
an outside source to produce electronic


copies of the data, a process that would
cost $2,000.
Attorney James McCollum, who is
representing Borkosky, said the $2,000
cost was unreasonable.
"The town has a computer program
which is not public-friendly,"
McCollum said. "The town wanted to
charge my client an exorbitant amount
of money to provide a field of informa-
tion. Essentially, they wanted him to
pay for their mistake."
McCollum said the town has not
updated its electronic program fast
enough, in accordance with state law.
"The statute says they have to keep
up with technology and have a program
for the public to access public records,"
McCollum said.
Freeman said the town has purchased
a new financial and billing program that
will completely overhaul the town's

in brief


Teen dies in rain
srm crash
LAKE PLACID A
Lake Placid teenager died
Friday in a single-vehicle
accident blamed on a pass-
ing rain storm, according
to the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Brittany Lee Helms, 17,
of Lake Placid, died at
Florida Hospital Lake
Placid after hydroplaning
about 4 p.m. on County
Road 29 three miles north
of State Road 70.
A 6-year-old passenger,
Alexis J. Green, was trans-
ported to Tampa General
Hospital and was in fair
condition Saturday.
The only occupants of
the 2000 Nissan, both
resided at the same resi-
dence according to the
FHP.
Cpl. L.M. Smith Jr. said
Helms was northbound on
C.R. 29, lost control in the
standing water and
careened into a "deep
ditch."
Helms wasn't wearing a
seat belt, according to
Smith, and said it was
"unknown" if Green was
restrained.
Helms' death was the
second single-vehicle death
for Lake Placid residents in
as many days.
Joshua Gary Cooper, 24,
died Thursday in Brevard
County, returning from a
SSpring Break trip to Lake
Placid.

in the center of the cam-
pus. Each panel contem-
plates humanity's place in
the universe, the eternal
quest for knowledge, and
the role of SFCC in
unleashing the potential of
its students.
"Embracing the Earth"
features a globe that is the
iconic symbol of SFCC.

Budget director to
discuss spending cap

with commissioners
By KEVIN J. SHUTT

SEBRING It's raining
cats and dogs for Highlands
County's Animal Control
Office.
With 500-700 open cases in
a given month, the department
is trying to stay afloat as
unforeseen circumstances
wash away its budget.
At commission chairman C.
Guy Maxcy's request, assis-
tant administrator Rick Helms
and animal control director
Darryl Scott will discuss
funding, staffing, procedures
and other issues Tuesday with
the board of county commis-
sioners.

SEBRING -. The city's
landscape ordinance is barely
seven months old, and
changes are already being
made.
If the revisions are enacted
at Tuesday's city council
meeting, the Community
Redevelopment Agency
Commission would be able to
exempt any or all of the orig-
inal landscape ordinance, dur-
ing its design reviews of
downtown projects.
The landscaping exemp-
tions will then be placed on
the city council's consent
agenda for review.

The changes were neces-
sary, CRA Executive Director
Pete Pollard said, because the
original ordinance would
have severely hampered
efforts to build in the down-
town area.
"The way the ordinance
was originally adopted would
almost completely preclude
all construction in the down-
town area," Pollard said. "The
original ordinance basically
created requirements that
were effective citywide based
on zoning. It didn't take a lot
of variables into account."
Most of downtown is zoned
C-1 Commercial, which
requires a 10-foot vegetative
buffer. But in downtown
Sebring, Pollard said, the 10-
foot buffer isn't realistic.
"If you require those
buffers, you're not going to
build anything," Pollard said.
A recommendation pro-
posed by a review group -
consisting of City
Administrator Bob Hoffman
and Pollard, among others -
would have given the CRA
board the authority to exempt
any or all of the landscape
ordinance during the design
review process.
Councilwoman Margie
Rhoades objected to the
group's proposed language at
the March 6 city council
meeting, saying she preferred


supervisor into the field.
"We can keep one guy busy
all day long running traps,"
Scott said, explaining his offi-
cers presently are rounding up
two packs of wild dogs and
that feral cats are epidemic.
Proposed changes at animal
control would improve servic-
es, requiring additional fund-
ing at a time the county is fac-
ing state-mandated spending
Scaps and exploring self-
imposed constraints.
Helms said the proposed
changes at animal control
came from recommendations
made by former director
Keith Albritton and Scott.
Potential changes range
from becoming proactive
instead of reactive to adopting
a code of ethics.
S "He has some very good
ideas of things that we can
do," Helms said of Scott,
who's been with the county
about five weeks and previ-
ously was an officer with the
Florida Fish and Wildlife


city council oversight.
"The city council has ulti-
mate responsibility," Rhoades
said, adding that as an elected
body, the council would be
held responsible by the public
for the CRA board's deci-
sions.
Pollard said although he
understands Rhoades' objec-
tions, he doesn't agree with
them.
"The CRA, in the design
review application, requires a
landscape plan," Pollard said.
"If there isn't one, the appli-
cant will have to explain
why."
Councilwoman 1\I. i'..
Daff, who series s Iioi-sn to
the CRA board, also dis-
agreed with Rhoades and
defended the CRA board.
"Our CRA does a-wonder-
ful job," she sad. "I feel that
they're really doing their
job." Daff added that putting
the landscape design reviews
"will take up more time here
that the CRA can handle."
The ordinance passed on,
first reading by a 3 to 2 mar-
gin, with Daff and Council
President Jeff Carlson voting
against.
The ordinance, if passed on
second reading, will put most
CRA board landscape reviews
on the council's consent agen-
da. If any council member has
an objection, they can pull the
design review off of the agen-
da for full discussion.
Pollard was OK with the
changes.
"It just means all of the
information we get regarding
design review will be sent to
city council," he said, adding
that he thinks "better than 90
percent" of design reviews
will end up on the council's
consent agenda. "If the city
council wants to take over the
design review process, we'd
love to give it to them."
Pollard liked the landscape
ordinance overall, but he
wanted the CRA to have the
ability to make landscaping
decisions case-by-case.


Commission.
Though change will come,
Scott will retain effective
methods.
"If we're going to become
more proactive ... that's going
to require additional staff,"
Helms said.
Whether additional staff are
added would be determined
during the county's budgeting
process. Helms is surveying
other counties' levels of serv-
ice for comparison.
Helms and Scott are explor-
ing the need to improve the
facilities.
"We want to improve the
pen area for large animals,"
Helms said. "That's some-
thing we're seeing an increase
in. We need to be able to
properly care for them, allow-
ing them to move around."
Recent marijuana grow
operation stings by the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office have resulted in the
seizure of livestock, for which
animal control has to provide


care.
The department lacks suffi-
cient facilities and larger ani-
mals drain his budget, Scott
said.
Animal control brings in
some revenue from licensing,
adoption and court-imposed
fees.
Currently, the department
reacts to complaints, and
abuse and neglect cases are
investigated as criminal viola-
tions by the sheriff's office.
Helms and Scott will rec-
ommend that animal control
officers proactively find vio-
lations, "intervening on
behalf of animals in distress."
A civil citation would allow
enforcement of minimum ani-
mal care the way code
enforcement officers enforce
property standards.
"There'll be a lot of infor-
mation discussed at the meet-
ing," Helms said, explaining
that data will continue to be
collected after Tuesday. "As a
county organization, we rec-


Army introduces new pin


A new pin has been created
for the retired Army soldiers
to emphasize the lifelong
bond with the Army. The pin
combines the Army logo with
the word "retired" embla-
zoned above.
The Army Chief of Staff's
Retiree Council recommend-
ed replacing the "Retired,
Still Serving" lapel pin. The
council asked for a larger pin
that could be recognized from
afar, be worn on clothing
other than a suit jacket, and
that would show the continu-
ing bond between the retired
soldier and the Army.
A packet containing the
new pin, a newsletter and let-
ter from the CSA will be
mailed to retired soldiers.


Retired Army Soldiers
should expect their retired pin
over the next four months.


ognize that we need to con-
stantly- improve the way we
do things. We continuously
seek ways we can better
deliver services."
Maxcy asked his board two
weeks ago to bring ideas for
efficiency to Tuesday's meet-
ing.
Management and Budget
Director Bernis Gainer will
present Hillsborough
County's "budget preparation
and limitations" policy, also
known as a "spending cap."
Calling it a "very broad
policy," Gainer said he'll be
prepared to field questions as
to how such a policy would
affect Highlands County, and
whether it should be imple-
mented.
"I would certainly be hesi-
tant to implement this kind of
local spending cap," Gainer
said Friday, explaining that
the state Legislature might
impose spending limitations
targeted at counties.

Not as bad as it appears


News-Sun photo by TREY CHRISTY
Firemen and spectators surround the scene of Ribmasters Barbecue last week after a
structure fire was reported to the Sebring Fire Department. Fortunately for the
restaurant and its patrons, Fire Chief Bradley Batz confirmed there was no fire out of
control, but rather grease was heated to the point it was ignited. Because of this, no
extinguishing agents were used and there was no contamination to food or the restau-
rant. 'The system worked the way it should and the fire was self contained,' Batz said
of the cooking apparatus used by the restaurant. Ribmasters was closed for the rest of
the afternoon but reopened for business as usual the next day.

participants to design a logo
and an accompanying slogan
alerting adults to the dangers
of underage drinking.

topics: underage drinking,
binge drinking, and alcohol-
related crash fatalities."

grades six to 12.
Last year a student from
Sebring High School
designed the HCCC logo,, but
the winner of this countywide
public awareness campaign
will see their design every-
where.
Stickers with the logo will
be placed on packs of beer,
wine coolers and other alco-
hol-related products that
appeal to underage drinkers.
Even posters will be available
for cooler doors.
Because of this fact, entries
in the contest need to be
geared to their target audience
- adults.
Entries must be black and
white and submitted on 8.5-
by-11 white paper to a desig-
nated person at each school
no later than Friday, March


30.
Entries will be judged April
11 with first, second and third
place winners taking home
$100, $50 and $25, respec-
tively.
Wording related to the
theme of the visual image is
limited to a maximum of six
words.
All statements should con-
vey the theme that persons
under 21 years should not
drink alcohol.
For example, "Arrive
Alive" or "Friends don't let
friends drive drunk" would be
appropriate.
Entries need to include the
student's name, school, stu-
dent's or school's address and
student's telephone number.
For additional information
contact Dr. Van Horn at 471-
5662.

Remember

SWhen The Word

"Service" Meant

Something?
We remember when people took the time to
serve others. Our family has been helping
families here for many years. A our town
has grown, we have grown too, with more
specialized services, such as out-of-town
arrangements, pre-arrangements, cremations
and a grief recovery program. Even though
we have grown, our dedication to service is
still the same as it was years ago. And, we
think that's really something.

Nurse Kelley Coluibie asks James Lewis a few health related questions -last week as
he lies back in the newly opened trauma room with wife Mary Lewis at Highlands
Regional Medical Center. Phase one of the emergency room renovation opened March
7, adding eight new rooms including the trauma room. This state of the art room is
essentially an operating room with trauma lights, an air regulator and all the neces-
sary equipment, said Dr. Hinda Greene, medical director of the Emergency
Department. The room is larger than a traditional ER room, so while not in use it is
large enough to house two patients. In an emergency the size of the room will allow
multiple doctors to assist a single patient, registered nurse Debie Baker said.

School for black students was named for a white man


By ELIZABETH WALKER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING "Why was
E.O. Douglas School named
for a white man?" is a ques-
tion frequently asked any time
the former Sebring school for
black students is mentioned.
Some are
quick to
answer that it
is because
Douglas paint- (
ed the building.
In a note hand-
written by Mrs. i _
E.O. Douglas, SEBI
it does indeed,
mention that her husband had
"instigated the first paint for
their school" and that "the
colored school board has
asked my permission to name
the school E.O. Douglas in
honor of him. It was a great
honor."
However the reasons for
honoring Eugene Oren
Douglas include much more
than a paint job.
Douglas and his new bride,
Blanche Skipper, moved from
Bartow to Sebring in 1912.
By 1913 he had become

record-keeping system. But
because of the complexity of
the new program and the
major changes it will mean
for the department, Freeman
said, the new system won't be
ready for at least another six
months.
"The system we have can't
give it to him electronically,"
Freeman said. "We're just
doing everything we can
here."
Freeman offered printed
copies of the records to
Borkosky, but he turned them
down.
"Having a paper copy is
useless in terms of analyzing
data," Borkosky explained.
"It's also extremely expen-
sive and wasteful and it kills
a lot of trees."
Borkosky didn't expect the
situation to come to this
point.
"Through this whole
process, I was really sur-
prised at how the town of
Lake Placid has stalled and
given me all different kinds
of excuses," he said. "I guess
my eyes have been opened as
to how government employ-
ees work sometimes."
Lake Placid Town Attorney
Bert Harris told the town
council to "brace yourselves"
for an impending lawsuit at
Monday's regular council
meeting.
Borkosky has authorized
McCollum to file the lawsuit.
However, McCollum has
been in continuous discus-
sions with Harris and Lake
Placid staff, and as of Friday
the lawsuit had not been
filed.

NAL president in
1926.
He served on
I| G the city council
from 1923-27,
was chairman of the fire com-
mittee, chairman of the water
committee and a member of
the chamber of commerce, as
well as the Masons.
He served in the National
Guard and was instrumental
in getting the present location
of State Road 8, which was of
special benefit of the Sebring
area at that time.
Douglas was vice president
of the first bank in Sebring,
the First National Bank, and
later became its president. He
even served as Sebring's post-


master. Allen Altvater's
records in the Sebring
Archives show him as the
city's first postman. Douglas
was the first unofficial post-
man when the post office was
in the rear of the First
National Bank. He dispensed
the mail to the few residents
receiving mail.
According to U.S. Postal
records, John D. Harrison was
the first official postmaster
and was appointed Feb. 29,
1912. Douglas's official
appointment began Nov. 19,
1913, to Sept. 29, 1914. His
next appointment was Jan. 24,
1917, to March 4, 1918.
As Sebring schools grew
and more teachers were
required, officials decided the
teachers needed living quar-
ters near the school on Pine
Street. Newspaper owner
Ruhl was approached for the
purchase of his frame home
near the corner of East Center
and North Pine for a "teacher-
age." Since the area was
becoming too busy for his
hobby farming, he relin-
quished the property.
The teacherage was also


named in honor of Douglas.
Known as Douglas Hall, it
even served as classrooms
later. The hall has been
restored and moved to Lemon
Street near the Sebring
Middle School and is used by
South Florida Community
College for classes.
The Douglas's lived on
Lakeview Drive in a frame
home where the .present
Douglas Place is located.
They were blessed with two
sons, Eugene Oren Jr. and
Glenn S.
Eugene Oren Sr. was born
in Coffee County, Ga., in
1882 and died in Sebring,
from complications of high
blood pressure in July 1927.
He is buried in Sebring's
Pinecrest Cemetery. His obit-
uary included "He labored
earnestly for the educational,
civic and moral betterment for
his fellow man."
Blanche remained in
Sebring until her health
failed, then she spent the
remainder of her life in New
Port News, Va., with her son.
She died April 1971 and is
buried in Sebring's Pinecrest


Cemetery also.
E.O. Douglas graduates
were and are proud of their
high school years and friend-
ships; their reunions are
always well attended.
Headquarters for the reunion
Aug. 2, 2007, will be in the
Inn on the Lake. More week-
end events featuring The


Voyage theme will be at the,
Quality Inn, Avon Park ,-
Community Center, Lake."

and Golf Course to be

Air conditioning


A cool living in Florida's heat it isn't magic, it


By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
christopher tuffley @ newssun. coin
SEBRING Gil Calcagno
moved to Highlands County
from Broward County at the
end of last year.
Like so many before him,
he was looking for a quieter,
more balanced life. As he
began his search for a new
home one friend told him
about another friend who
owned property in Lake
Placid.
Calcagno and his wife
came up for a visit to see what
was available and what the
place was like. It was right
before Labor Day 2006.
All it took, Calcagno said,
was stopping at the first site,
an empty lot right on Lake
Grassy.
He was sold on the spot. "It
was perfect. It didn't take. a
minute," he said, "I didn't
have to look anywhere else."
Of course his wife wasn't
quite that sure, and insisted
they see at least one other
property.
Which he did to please her,
but the other place, while
nice, just wasn't the same,
and he talked his wife into the
first one, which they bought
on the spot.
"I built a house to personi-
fy what I had as a kid," he
said. "When I was growing
up, my family was always
getting together. Now I don't
have to go on vacation, and
Lake Grassy is my ocean."
Calcagno has one of those


just feels that way


TOUFF1' IT

WITH TUFFLEY
Christopher Tuffley


- which,
thankfully, is
still in good
working
order.
You would-
n't think so to
look at it
though be-
cause of the
mildew grow-
ing on the out-
side of it.
I said
something
about using
bleach to
clean up the
housing, but
Calcagno


warned me
against it. Bleach is a corro-
sive, he explained, if I used it
too often I could compromise
the quality of the metal cas-
ing. Outside mildew wasn't
really anything to worry
about, he added, because the
system is closed and wouldn't
be affected.
Plus, I'd be using a lot of
bleach, because the problem
was the result of having the
air handler in an uncooled
part of the building. The
mildew was the natural result
of the combination of cooled
air in the box and hot air out-
side it. It couldn't be helped
and would only come back
when I tried to remove it.


See MAGIC, page 11A


In the interest
of full disclo-
sure, this week's
assignment
worked out a lit-
tle differently
than usual.
For some time
I've thought
about doing a
piece on air con-
ditioning repair
because it's such
an obvious
career choice
for those of us
living in
Florida.
But one thing
has always led


News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY
Gil Calcagno checks out an elderly air handler. The triangular piece at the top is the evapora-
tor, where heat is removed from the air. One side product of the system is water. A typical
system will create five gallons of water a day, up to 20 gallons if the weather is more humid.


interesting backgrounds typi-
cal of many Americans.
His grandfather was an
Italian who moved to .the
Dominican Republic, where
his father was born.
When World War II started,
Calcagno's dad wanted to get
into the fighting. So he moved
to Canada to join the military
there.
While he was there, his
father saw a woman one day
on a bus and he followed her
home. When she turned to
confront him, he said, "I'm
going to marry you."


"You're crazy," she replied,
but six weeks later he did.
Calcagno laughed telling
the story about his parents,
then added, "They divorced
20 years later."
Calcagno mostly grew up
in Toronto, but in 1960 moved
with his family to the warmer
climate of Fort Lauderdale.
There he graduated from high
school. After a stint in the Air
Force, when he worked on B-
52s, he began work with
National Airlines.
But strikes, and an uncer-
tain future lead him to explore


options. It was a slow transi-
tion, but eventually he went
back to school for a five-year
program in heating and cool-
ing systems. He studied blue-
print reading, soldering, and
welding, as well. He has been
in the field ever since 1970.
With partners, he eventual-
ly established a firm in Fort
Lauderdale Crane Air
Conditioning.
He is opening a branch of
that firm here, but his dream
is to have his own shop. He

to another, and
nothing ever came of it.
Well, a few weeks back I
was at the Heartland
Workforce attending one of
its regular breakfasts for local
businessmen. While I was
there I met Gil Calcagno, a
recent transplant from
Broward County.
Turned out he was in the air
conditioning business and
more than willing to teach me
something about the trade.
One problem, he has only
been here a few months and is
basically unknown, which
meant he had no customer
appointments scheduled.
So we went to my place
where he showed me around
my very old air handler unit

Father, daughter team make First Impression


Jorell Snook operates the brand new Hamada offset printix
press, which can produce one-color or full-color work at
First Impression Printing Solutions.


MAGIC
Continued from 9A
Calcagno is a serious propo-
nent of the age old adage, "if
it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Only he takes it a step further,
"if it ain't broke, don't open it
up," is his best advise.
He said many new techni-
cians, coming right out of
school, itch to get their hands
on the insides of the machine.
They have the tendency to
tear things apart, which can
lead to even bigger problems.
Older pieces can snap, or get
bent out of shape, and before
you know it, he said, you
have to replace everything..
s That'" why, he said, trouble
Shooting is very important to
the job, and developing an
eye and an ear for a problem
can only really come with
experience.
As for my machine, despite
the nasty look of the inner
rust and the outer mildew, it
worked, so we should leave it
alone. But that left us with
nothing to do. He pointed out
the different parts, explaining
their functions, and we put
the cover plates back. That
was the sum of my work
experience.
I did learn one of the draw-
backs to this occupation -
working in tight, nearly inac-
cessible spaces.
Calcagno explained how
air conditioning works. It
turns out to be both simple
and hard to comprehend, so
much of it is like magic.
An important concept is to
understand that air condition-
ers don't cool the air, instead
they remove heat from it.
"You are creating your own
weather system," is how
Calcagno explained it.
Freon (which, by the way,
is a brand name used
generically, like Kleenex -or
Jell-O) is a refrigerant. It can
change from a gas to a liquid,
then back to a gas again,
which is how the whole sys-
tem works.
The refrigerant starts out as
a cool, low-pressure gas. Fed
into a compressor the gas is
squeezed so the molecules are
forced closer together, mov-
ing faster and growing hotter
as they do. The now hot,
high-pressure gas then goes to
the condenser.
The condenser has fins and
acts like a radiator in a car -
it quickly disperses the heat.
That cools the refrigerant,
converting it into a liquid,


which is still under high pres-
sure. Then the liquid is forced
into the evaporator through a
very small hole. The evapora-
tor also has fins, creating
space for the high-pressure
molecules to spread out.
The molecules spread
because heat from the air sep-
arates them as they reform
from a liquid back into a gas.
A fan connected to the
evaporator blows across it,
forcing the conditioned air
into the room.
Inside the machine, the gas
returns to the compressor,
while outside, the lighter hot
air is displaced upward by the
cooler air, where it is drawn
back into the system, and the
cycle begins all over again.
According to www.fac
staff.bucknell.edu and www.
greatachievements this com-
plicated technology took
decades to develop. Inventors
were experimenting prior to
the Civil War, and President
John Garfield was cooled
with a rudimentary contrap-
tion as he died slowly from. an
assassin's bullet in 1881.
The first viable product
was invented by Willis
Carrier in 1902. The first
applications were strictly
industrial, used by businesses
like printing plants and phar-
maceutical companies.
Movie theaters and depart-
ment stores began installing
air conditioning in the mid- to
late '20s. It wasn't until after
World War II that air condi-
tioning became generally
affordable.
It takes a knowledge of
electricity, as well as the par-
ticular dynamics of the air
conditioning system, to mas-
ter the trade.
South Florida Community
College offers a year-long
course of instruction, which
includes time in the field.
Tom Bush, who has taught
the program for nine years, is
himself a graduate of the pro-
gram.
There is currently no wait-
ing list to enter. Typically 10
to 15 students attend each
term. Bush reports graduates
have had no trouble finding
work.
Bush recommends the
occupation. It pays well, he
said, and, in Florida, is basi-
cally recession proof, as most
people can't live without air
conditioning. A starting wage
would be around $10, he said,
but an experienced technician
can make as much as $15 or
$16 an hour.

Out of the world and trying to catch up


- ~ -


-C -


People who see me this
week might notice I'm a tad
confused. I mean, more than
usual.
There is an explanation for
this. I just finished spending a
week out of state. Clear
across the country, as a matter
of fact, in Oregon, where I
joined several other writers
for a writing retreat.
The retreat was designed
for us to guess what? -
write. It was not a vacation.
We went wanting to get a lot
of words written, and hoped
that being in a house with a
common goal and armed with
our laptops that there would
be great progress.
Well I'm happy to report
that great progress was made
and many words written
fueled by positive energy and
copious amounts of caffeine
and chocolate. All of us were,
in general, considerate human
beings and so we concentrat-
ed on our characters having
conflicts instead of each
other.
Why, you may ask, would


such a positive week Lau
leave me in a state of
great physical and Lo
mental confusion? Laur,
Well, there are a cou-
ple of reasons.
First is the whole time
issue. There is a three-hour
difference between Florida
and Oregon. That means that
at midnight here, it is only 9
p.m. there. The mind accepts
this change. The body is left
scratching its head and asking
what happened.
It also didn't help that we
realized, to our dismay, that
we had to lose an hour last
Saturday. I have long won-
dered why we continue this
whole silly concept of
Daylight Savings Time. After
this past weekend, I'm ready
to junk it for sure. Did anyone
ask if Ineeded that hour?
Add to the whole mix that
in order to get back to Florida
at anything resembling a
decent hour I must get up at
an indecent hour and it may
not surprise you that I came
back to Florida almost cross-


ira's eyed with fatigue.
I have spent a good
Iok bit of the past two
a Ware days sleeping.
Hopefully my body
will re-adjust itself soon.
But there is another reason
for my confusion. Remember,
this was a writing retreat.
Retreat in the sense we left
our homes and our routines to
focus on getting words on the
page (or the laptop screen).
That meant minimizing dis-
tractions. Which meant no tel-
evision. Almost no Internet
access. (We didn't have
access at the house but sever-
al of us who were suffering
withdrawal visited a cyber
caf6 on Thursday.)
This meant I didn't read a
newspaper (no newspaper
delivery!) or listen to talk
radio or watch the news for a
week. A week of no politi-
cians sniping at each other.
No breathless recounting of
the latest in the Anna Nicole
Smith case. No word on the
current food that will kill you
if you even think about eating


The only news I heard
while I was out of touch was
that Scooter Libby was found
guilty. The person who men-
tioned this didn't supply
details, and I didn't ask.
And I didn't really miss it.
Look, I am a news junkie at
heart. I usually love listening
to the latest in political twists
and turns. I watch Fox News
and get news alerts from
CNN. My radio is almost
always tuned into TK 730, our
local talk station.
But a break was nice, I,
have to admit. Sure, it means
I'm going to be confused for a
few days as I shovel out my e-
mail and revisit Web sites to
catch up on stuff. And I may
not be as "in the know" as
usual.
But a break can be refresh-

Warm, cool

cycles natural
Editor:
Pertaining to the "Global
Warming" rhetoric, the earth
has had a global warming and a
global cooling cycle about
every 15 to 20 thousand years
without the help of man. That is
what caused the demise of the
pre-historic creatures.
Don H. Streeter
Sebring

'Star Spangled

Banner' is 76
Editor:
The War of 1812 had been a
particularly nasty conflict with
the British. After burning down
the Capitol and White House
they were set on taking the port
of Baltimore, which was pro-
tected in part by Fort McHenry.
After a land attack had been
thwarted, 16 ships of the
British fleet positioned them-
selves for a massive attack on
the fort.
Before the fleet came into
cannon range, Francis Scott
Key went to one of the British
ships to negotiate the release of
Dr. William Beanes, a friend of


Key who had been seized fol-
lowing the attack on
Washington. The British
agreed, but Key and his friend
had learned too much about the
coming attack and were
detained by the British on
board the frigate "Surprise"
until all was over.
The attack started on Sept.
12, 1814, and continued for 25
hours. He watched the bom-
bardment from the deck and
occasionally caught glimpses
of the fort with its huge flag 42-
feet long, with eight red stripes,
seven white stripes and 15
white stars.
In the dark on the 13th, the
shelling suddenly stopped but
through the darkness he could-
n't tell if the British forces had
been defeated or the fort had
fallen.
As the sun rose, Key penned
through the darkness the first
lines of a poem he called
Defense of Fort McHenry came
to him and were written down
.on an envelope -
"O, say can you see, by the
dawn's early light, What so
proudly we hail'd at the twi-
light's last gleaming."
Finally the sun rose and with
intense relief and pride he saw
that the fort had withstood the
onslaught...


"Tis' the Star Spangled
Banner O long may it wave
"O'er the land of the free and
the home of the brave."
In 1916, President Woodrow
Wilson ordered that it should
be played at military and naval
occasions, but it wasn't until
March 3, 1931, that it was offi-
cially designated as the nation-
al anthem by act of Congress.

Reinstate

intangibles tax
Editor:
For the majority of our citi-
zens, the solution to our proper-
ty tax fiasco should be readily
apparent, although the
Republicans controlling our
state government aren't likely
to be very receptive.
The intangibles tax, which
impacted only the wealthiest
Floridians, should be reinstated
and the property tax reduced by
a commensurate amount. All of
the sales tax exemptions grant-
ed to special interest groups


should be re-evaluated and
those not found to be in the best
interests of the general citizen-
ry should be rescinded.
The privatization of our
government services must be
halted. We have all seen the
increased corruption and the
waste of taxpayers money
brought about through this
failed philosophy. As has been
continually proven, the private
sector has no motivation except
profit and thus can never com-
pete with public employees
when providing a comparable
level of service to the public.
Our tax money must be used
more wisely. An ever-increas-
ing portion of. our resources is
spent on the expansion of
sports facilities benefiting few,
even as the needs of a great
many of our most vulnerable
citizens remain unmet.
It is unlikely that the aver-
age citizen will be well-served
as long as our government -
federal, state and local is con-
trolled by politicians devoted to
allowing business interests to
operate with little or no regula-
tory oversight and who contin-
ually refuse to protect the pub-
lic.

Pause And
Consider
Jan Merop

Simply

amazed
The first day of spring
is only two days away.
But, God has been work-
ing behind the scenes,
beneath the earth and
within the atmosphere -
though we may not see
these intricacies till they
manifest themselves.
Winter has been less
frigid here in Florida
causing some plants to
bloom early. But, in spite
of that, cold nights and
chilly days did come
reminding us that spring-
time was still a ways off.
Now it is arriving and
offering renewal.
In our tropical setting,
we are blessed with pro-
fuse color and design in
flowers, birds and sunsets
all year. But, having
lived in the North, I
remember the bareness of
winter.
I recall one of the ear-
liest signs heralding the
rebirth of spring. The
vibrant, yet tiny, crocus
pushing up from the
crusted earth through the
white snowd-to, say,- "Here
I am. I've slept away the
winter, but I'm here to
announce spring."
'The strength of the tiny
crocus ne\er ceased to
amaze me as it broke the
frozen earth with color
and delicacy. I also loved
how the trees were trans-
formed from brown, bare
branches to the emer-
gence of tiny chartreuse
buds that filled out to
shade trees. I'm amazed
at life reborn.
Sometimes we feel like
we are in the winter of
life with the many bur-
dens we bear. We shiver
from the cold realities
and harshness that threat-
ens to overwhelm us -
making us think it will
never pass.
We've been on our
knees in prayer, we've
asked and believed. But
the answers haven't come
as soon as we would have
liked. Yet we can be sure
that God is working
behind the scenes and the
intricacies of his answers
are coming.
A look at nature
reminds us that "this too
shall pass" and that a
new season is on the way.
And when that delightful
answer finally breaks
through even though
we asked and believed -
somehow we're still
amazed.
But, that amazement is
a good thing. It causes us
to lift our voices to the
Lord in praise and
when we praise him, he's
present in our praise.
Like the Psalmist in
Psalm 28: 6 & 7, NIV, we
can say,
"Praise be to the Lord,
for he has heard my cry
for mercy. The Lord is
my strength and my
shield; my heart trusts in
him, and I am helped.
My heart leaps for joy
and I will give thanks to
him in song."
I'm glad we can still
be delighted, astounded
and simply amazed by
God's miraculous deeds.
Selah.

Citrus Scab


Sooty Mold


By ED AYEN
Master Gardener
Today we will look at some of the
diseases and pests that affect citrus.
"Alternaria brown spot" infection
is a fungal disease that can cause
severe leaf and fruit drop particular-
ly in Minneola (Honeybell) and
Orlando tangelos, Dancy tangerine,
and Murcott (Honey tangerine).
Wide spacing of trees so you have
good aeration will help prevent this
disease. If need be, use copper fun-
gicide for chemical control. The first
spray should be applied when the
spring flush leaves are one-quarter
to one-half expanded. More sprays
may be needed during the growing
season should you have a persistent
problem.
In another fungal disease called
"citrus scab," corky outgrowths
begin on leaves, shoots and fruit as
rounded pustules. Initially, scab
lesions on fruit consist of slightly
raised pink to light brown pustules.
Later they become wart-like,
cracked, turn yellowish brown and
eventually dark gray. Again, copper
spray may be used to combat the dis-
ease starting when leaves are one-
quarter to one-half expanded .
"Greasy spot" spores germinate on

the underside of
the leaves, pene-
trate the leaf tis-
sue and cause cel-
lular swelling,
resulting in blister
formation on the
lower leaf surface.
Yellow spots first.
appear on the
upper leaf surface,
then irregular
brown blisters that
become dark,
slightly raised and
have a greasy
appearance develop
on lower, and later,


upper leaf surfaces. Thorough cover-
age of the underside of leaves with
copper fungicides plus oil is impor-
tant and necessary for the control of
greasy spot.
"Phytophthora" is a soil-borne dis-
ease whose symptoms include
sloughing off of roots (root rot) and
bark peeling in crown roots and
trunk at the soil level (foot rot). This
disease is caused by an oversupply
of moisture. Do not mulch around
your trees keep the area around the
trunk free of weeds and grass out to
the drip line and do not over water.


"Sooty mold" is a black thin mat
usually caused by a fungus that
grows on the sugary excrement (hon-
eydew) of insects with piercing-
sucking mouth parts such as White-
flies, scales, aphids and mealybugs.
Applications of horticultural oil will
loosen sooty mold and help control
insects if present.
"Aphids" are closely associated
with new growth flushes and newly,
emergent, succulent leaves.
Infestations and sustained feeding
result in distorted growth arid stunt-
ing following by leaf cupping and
curling or twisting. Other insect
attacking citrus are the "citrus psyl-
lid" and the "rust mite". Again horti-,
cultural oil will do a decent job of
controlling these insects.
Any of these diseases and pests
can cause leaf drop, dieback and loss
of fruit yield. For more information
on diagnosing and control of these
problems please contact the Master
Gardener office.

Gardener at the Highlands County

'Pirate of Penzance' will close the South Florida Community College Artist Series with a
March 28 presence on the auditorium stage. Tickets are still available for this final show of
the 2006-07 season and can be purchased online or at the box office.


SFCC Artist Series closes season

with 'Pirates of Penzance'


AVON PARK South
Florida Community College
will present an evening of
fine entertainment with the
final Artis't Series perform-
ance of the 2006-07 season,
"Pirates of Penzance." The
curtain rises at 7:30 p.m.
Wednesday, March 28, in the
SFCC Auditorium, Highlands
Campus, Avon Park.
The Carl Rosa Company is
in the midst of a major tour of
the United States and Canada
with its acclaimed production
of Gilbert & Sullivan's highly
popular show "The Pirates of
Penzance." With London's
West End star Rosemary Ashe
(the original Carlotta in "The
Phantom of the Opera") in the
role of Ruth, this award-win-
ning, revived production fea-
tures stunning new period
costumes, staging and designs
along vith a prestigious cast.
"The Pirates of Penzance"


was written in 1879 and is
about Fredric, a young man
who is mistakenly appren-
ticed as a pirate rather than as
a ship's pilot. After many
years, he discovers the truth
and plans to leave the Pirates
of Penzance. Shortly after-
wards, he meets the daughters
of a major general and falls
madly in love with them. The
daughters reject him because
he was a pirate, but the fairest
of them all, Mabel, agrees to
love him. Then, something
stirs up in the story that
leaves Frederic and his sense
of duty as a pirate stuck in the
middle.
Now 127 years since its
premiere, "The Pirates of
Penzance" remains an all-
time favorite with familiar
songs such as the "I Am The
Very Model of a Modern
Majori-General" and "Sighing
Softly to the River."


Elegantly re-creating the
original period settings and
costumes with exquisite
detail, this internationally
acclaimed revival sparkles
with wit, fine singing, and a
sensational cast.
The co-sponsors for "The
Pirates of Penzance" are
Highlands Today and
Highlands Regional Medical
Center.
Tickets range from $33.-
$38 and may be purchased
online 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, at www.south
florida.edu by clicking on
"Performances." Tickets may
also be purchased by calling
the SFCC Box Office at 784-
7178 or by visiting the SFCC
Box Office at the front of the
SFCC Auditorium, 600 W.
College Drive, Highlands
Campus, Avon Park, 11:30
a.m. to- 2:30 p.m. Monday-

Drought has not led lakes to historic lows ... yet


Jennifer will be taking a
few weeks off from writing,
to concentrate on her most
recent adventure, mother-
hood. In her last article, she
covered some delicious dairy
recipes for Super Bowl
Sunday.
Unfortunately for her and
her husband, they did not get
to enjoy any of the treats
because her son was born dur-
ing the first quarter of the
game. Mother and son are
doing fine and bonding during
her time off from work. In the
interim, Jennifer's colleagues
in the Natural Resources
Department will be trying
their hands at filling in the
gap.
Right now, we are at the
mid-point of the dry season in
Florida, and though there
were some hopes that the El
Nino conditions in the Pacific
would bring us increased rain-


fall, those forecasts didn't
materialize. Most of our rain-
fall occurs from June through
October, averaging 35-40
inches of rain. During a nor-
mal dry season we tend to get
an average of 15-20 inches of
rain. The December 2006
rainfall was a little below
average, and put most of
Highlands County in the 'very
dry' column on the Southwest
Florida Water Management
District's monthly report.
January's rainfall was even
further from its historical
average.
According to the
SWFWMD report, water lev-
els for the district's sample
lakes in the Lake Wales Ridge
region, which includes six
lakes in Highlands County
and three in Polk County,
decreased an average of three
inches in January alone. This
corresponds to an average


lake level for the
sample lakes that is
3.27 feet lower than
what it was one year
ago. Even though this
number sounds dras-
tically low, none of
the lakes have
reached their histori-
cal lows. For exam-
ple, Lake Jackson is
currently at an eleva-
tion of 99.42 feet,
which is 3.04 feet
down from its level


News From
the
Watershed
Erin McCarta


one year ago, at
102.46 feet. Lake Jackson's
historical low is 97.16 feet,
which occurred in May 1982.
There are many factors to
consider when trying to
understand the impact that
rainfall, or the lack thereof,
will have on our lakes. It is
important to look at the water-
shed of a lake, which is all the
land that" drains, or sheds


water, to a lake. In
Highlands County,
the water in a water-
shed can come from
groundwater seeping
through the soil or
from sheet-flow and
runoff. If a lake has a
large watershed in
comparison to its
size, chances are that
even a relatively
small amount of rain
will have a significant
impact. If the water-
shed is small in com-


prison to the size of the lake,
then a substantial rain event
or a long period of rain would
be needed to notice a change
in lake level. An example
would be to compare Lake
Jackson with Lake Sebring.
Lake Jackson is a 3,500-acre
lake with about 4,500 acres of
watershed. Lake Sebring is a
450-acre lake with a water-

shed of 7,550 acres. This
helps to explain why there is a
drastic difference in water
level changes between these
two lakes. While Lake
Jackson's water level has
dropped more than three feet
since last year, Lake Sebring's
deficit, only one foot, has not
been nearly as noticeable.

It is also important to note
whether a lake has inflows
that contribute to its water
level. These could be tributar-
ies or streams that connect
lakes together, or they could
be drainageways collecting
water from various sources.
Either way, they contribute
water to a lake in addition to
direct rainfall.
Visually, some lakes appear
to be lower in level than other
lakes, or they can seem lower
simply because sand bars
have appeared. When water


levels drop, the shoreline of a
lake is further out than it used
to be, exposing the lake bot-
tom. The bathymetry, or bot-
tom contours, of a lake can be
changed by simple wave
action. A lake is like a bowl of
water with lots of sand on the
bottom. If the water in the
bowl is sloshed to and fro, the
sand on the bottom will move
and settle in a different spot.
Essentially, this is why some
of our lakes have a lot more
exposed lake bottom than
might have been seen in the
past. In the recent past, severe
changes in lake bottom con-
tours were probably caused by
hurricanes.

It is difficult to foresee how
a lake will respond to rainfall.
For more information on
selected lake levels and rain-
fall, visit the SWFWMD Web
site at swfwmd.state.fl.us.

Concert is coming

The Lake Wales Chorale will present 'Italian Masters' at First Presbyterian Church in Lake
Wales at 8 p.m. Friday, March 30.


Chorale presents 'Italian Masters'


LAKE WALES The
Lake Wales Chorale will pres-
ent its Spring Concert,
"Italian Masters," at 8 p.m.
Friday, March 30, at First
Presbyterian Church, Lake
Wales. The program will
include a variety of music
from various eras as well as
works by many of the great,
well-known Italian com-
posers.
The centerpiece of the con-
cert will include Antonio
Vivaldi's Magnificat with
orchestra and harpsichord
played by Assistant
Director/Accompanist Ginger
Statom. Soloists will include
chorale members Katie Bell,
soprano and Bill Dickinson,
bass; guest soloists will
include Ceci Dadismon,
mezzo-soprano from Palm
Beach and operatic tenor,
Bryce Westervelt from New
Port Richey.
Other music will include
Renaissance madrigals,
Verdi's Ave Maria, and a
Renaissance mass. Of course,
Italian music cannot be com-
plete without opera and the
close of the concert will high-
light many of those great
tunes that will make you feel
as if you are at La Scala in
Milan.


These choruses will be con-
ducted by Lake Wales Arts
Council Executive Director
Bill Dickinson, who has a
great love of opera and was
executive director at Opera
Colorado.
"This will be Bill's last
concert with the Lake Wales
Chorale, and he has been cru-
cial in the growth and man-
agement of this organization,"
said Artistic Director Dr.
Gabriel Statom. "Bill has had
a wonderful career as an
administrator, musician and
teacher and we have bene-
fited greatly from his expert-
ise in Lake Wales this is
just one fun way we can pay
tribute to his commitment to
the arts in Lake Wales."
The "Italian Masters" con-
cert is not only being present-
ed for the benefit of the
Central Florida audiences, but
will also be enjoyed by many
in Italy as the Lake Wales
Chorale embarks on a tour of
that country 1May 25-Jufie 6.
The choir will sing in Rome,
Florence, Assisi, Venice and
Spoleto at venues such as St.
Peter's Basilica in the
Vatican, where the choir will
sing high noon mass and also
at St. Mark's Cathedral in
Venice.


"This choir has gained a
reputation, especially during
our successful Austria tour in
2005 where we sang at St.
Stephens Cathedral in Vienna
and made a connection with
Wolfgang Riesinger, who is
director of all church music
for the Catholic churches in
Austria," Statom said. "He
recommended us to sing at the
Vatican every visiting
choir who sings there must
have a recommendation from
another major cathedral in the
world this is a great honor
for us."
The Lake Wales Chorale
will have 60 singers for the
March 30 concert. They will
present a concert in Sebring at
St. Agnes Episcopal Church
at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 4, and
will sing at Lake Ashton on
Saturday, April 22. There will
be a Benefit Dinner and
Concert at La Bella Torre on
Thursday, April 19, in which
people will be serenaded with
Italian music, wined and
dined with Italian cuisine, and
the proceeds will benefit the
Chorale Scholarship Fund,
which will help about eight
young singers participate in
the 2007 Italy Tour, which
will include about 47 singers
and friends.

SEBRING On this

Cross." Pastor Dale Schanely
will use the Biblical illustra-
tion of Abraham with his son
Isaac, as willing to make the

the meaning of the cross. Jack
Sink, lay leader, will sing
"People Need the Lord."

potluck dinner will be served
in fellowship hall.
Holy Communion will be
served at 9 a.m. Wednesday

Arts Council plans Youth Music Festival for April 28


LAKE WALES The
Lake Wales Arts Council is
proud to announce the fifth
annual Youth Music Festival
for East Polk County stu-
dents. Four years ago the
council began offering a com-
petition for music students to
compete for prizes and gain
valuable experience perform-
ing for an audience and before
a panel of judges.
The Youth Music Festival
will take place at the Lake

Highlandaires

perform last

concert of

season
SEBRING The
Highlandaires Big Band will
play its last regularly sched-
uled concert of the season
featuring classic hits of the
big band era for listening and
dancing at the Sebring Civic
Center (next to the Little
Theater on Lake Jackson)
from 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 29, in co-
operation with the Gallery
Walk.
Admission is $7 If you
show a receipt of purchase
from one of the Gallery Walk
participants dated 3/29/07,
admission is free. For further
information, call 471-1086.

Cowell claims

to sell 'more

records than

Springsteen'
Associated Press
NEW YORK Simon
Cowell says he's bigger than
The Boss.
In an interview to air
Sunday on CBS' "60
Minutes," the "American
Idol" judge 'says he's worth
five times more to Sony BMG
than Bruce Springsteen.
"I sell more records than
Bruce Springsteen, sure,"
Cowell says of the 57-year-
old rocker, who signed a con-
tract that was reported to be
in the neighborhood of $100
million.
"I mean, in the last five
years, I've probably sold over
100 million records. If
(Springsteen) got one hun-
dred (million dollars), I
should have got five hundred
(million dollars)," he says.
Cowell says he sells all
those records because he's
signed "the biggest artist on
the planet" Fox network's
"American Idol."
"Every single 'Idol' winner
is now signed through Sony
BMG," says Cowell. "And
this applies to ... all the coun-
tries ... we sell 'Idol' to,
which is over 30 countries."
Albums by "American
Idol" winners and runners-up
are distributed by labels with-
in the Sony BMG system
through a deal between Clive
Davis and 19 Recordings
Unlimited, the label managed
by "American Idol" creator
Simon Fuller.
Interviewer Anderson
Cooper asks Cowell, 47,
whether his deal with Sony
BMG is in the same neigh-
borhood as Springsteen's.
"A hundred million .
that's a great deal," Cowell
says.
Was he referring to himself
or Springsteen?
"For him," Cowell says,
grinning. "For him it's a good
deal."


Wales Arts Center on
Saturday, April 28. The com-
petition will be divided by age
group and by voice, piano,
and instrumental music. The
two age groups are age 11-14
and age 15-18. Students are
placed in the groups based on
their age on April 28, 2007.
The students are allowed to
compete in more than one cat-
egory.
Students will perform for
the panel of judges through-
out the day. Winners will be


announced at the public con-
cert that evening beginning at
7:30 p.m. The council encour-
ages all contestants, families
and their teachers to attend
this concert. The public is
also invited.
The evening concert has
been the highlight of the day
for staff and supporters of the
event. Don't miss this oppor-
tunity to see (and hear) these
amazing young musicians
perform. There is no admis-
sion for the concert. The pub-


lic is also invited to stop in
anytime during the day to
watch the judging.
To enter the competition,
students must attend a public,
private, or home school that is
located east of U.S. 27 in Polk
County or have a permanent
address in the attendance zone
for one of the public schools
in that area. Students must
perform two contrasting
selections from the standard
classical repertoire and vocal
students 15-18 years are


encouraged to sing one selec-
tion in a foreign language.
Prizes will be awarded at the
discretion of the judges and
the Lake Wales Arts Council.
Cash prizes will be given in
each category as follows: in
the 11-14 Division, first place
is $100, second prize $50,
third prize $25. In the 15-18
Division, first prize is $500,
second prize is $250 and third
prize is $100.
The Youth Music Festival
has been a great successful


since its inception. Each year
more and more students com-
pete and as they compete, we
see an amazing difference in
the quality and skill of these
young performers.
Entry forms and a copy of
the rules are available upon
request. The Lake Wales Arts
Center is located at 1099 State
Road 60 East in Lake Wales.
For information on this or
any other program offered at

55th Annual Mobil 1 1I Hours of Sebring


News-Sun photo by SCOTT DRESSEL/News-Sun
Marco Werner celebrates as he crosses the finish line in the No. 2 Audi R10 Saturday night to win the 12 Hours of Sebring


Holds off challenge from


Acura for eighth straight title


By BARRY FOSTER
News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING The fans who showed
up for this year's Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring got their money's worth. Three
out of the top four qualifiers set lap
records in the battle between the LMP1
and LMP2 divisions, a tussle for the
overall 'Iin that challenged the Audi
teams all day long.
In the end, it was a clogged radiator
that dropped the No. 26 Andretti Green
Acura/ARX-0la LMP2 out of the lead
in the late stages and, gave the lead to
the No. 2 Audi and pole-sitter Marco
Werner, who drove the final stint.
Werner and co-drivers Emanuele Pirro
and Frank Biela completed 363 laps
around the 3.72-mile circuit, finishing
seven laps ahead of the Andretti-Green
Acura.
Even so, it was an auspicious start
for Indy stars Brian Herta, Dario
Franchitti and Tony Kanaan, who made
their maiden run at Sebring. Acura also
took the third spot with the No. 15
Lowe's Fernandez Racing Lola of
Adrian Fernandez, Luis Diaz and David
Martinez.
In addition to finishing first overall,
Audi Sport North America scored a
one-two win in the LMP1 division with
the No. 1 Audi of McNish, Capello and
Kristensen second in class and fourth


overall.
It was the eighth straight overall wi n
for Audi in 12 Hours, and also ga'e
Biela his record-tying fourth win, put-
ting him at the top of the all-time
Sebring list alongside Kristensen, who
won his fourth last year.
It was also the ninth win in as man\
starts for the diesel-powered RI0.
which made its debut in last year's 12
Hours.
The new Creation/Judd of Intersport
Racing finished third in the LMPI
class. Jon Field and his team overcame
a myriad of adversities over Race Week
ranging from a wreck during practice io
the destruction of part of their trans-
porter in a vicious Thursday night rain-
storm to finish on the podium.
Officials from Acura were delighted
with their one-two finish in the LMP2
class. Winner Andretti Green ran the
new Acura chassis with the Lowe's
Fernandez team opting for the Lola
platform. Finishing third in the division
was the No. 7 Penske Porsche RS
Spyder of Timo Bernard, Romain
Dumas and Helio Castroneves.
The finish in the GT2 division came
down to a heart-stopping front stretch

Jamie Melo in the No. 62 Ferrari swap-
ping paint with Jorg Bergmeister's No.

The No. 26 Andretti Green Racing Acura finished second overall and was in
the hunt for the win until the late stages of the Race.


45 Flying Lizard Porsche 997 for a
.020-second victory. That race boiled
down to the final lap with Bergmeister
able to get a brief lead down the back
stretch.
The GT2 fight was an all-day battle
between Ferrari and Porsche, with Risi
and Petersen/White Lightning carrying
the banner for the Prancing Pony while
the Flying Lizards were relentless in
their day-long charge for the checkers.


Finishing third in GT2 was the Tafel
Racing Porsche. It also was that team's
first run at Sebring.
To nobody's surprise, Corvette
cruised to victory in the three-car GT1
class. The Velocity Yellow No. 4 of

12 Hours a real endurance test for this rookie fan


And Another
Thing ...
Dan Hoehne


The Mobil 1 12 Hours of
Sebring.
A one-half day of racing
featuring four classes of race
cars simultaneously speeding
around the 3.72-mile course of
the Sebring International
Raceway.
I can only remember going
to one auto race of any kind in
my life.
And I was about 5 when my


dad took us to the stock car
races west of Chicago, so I
really wasn't sure what to
expect.
One thing I had discovered
after having come out to the
Winter Test and the qualifying
runs was that it would be loud.
Those prior experiences had
shown me that an individual
car going by was loud enough
to loosen up some ear wax.


So I arrive Saturday morn-
ing, just before race time at 10
a.m., and quickly realized I
should have gotten there
much, much earlier to find any
sort of parking.
By the time I found a spot,
the race was about 15 minutes
in and I was somewhere near
Miami.
Of course, during the walk
from my car to the press box,


I experienced the volume of a
trackload of race cars roaring
by at once.
I'm not sure if I heard it so
much as I felt it since a few of
my fillings suddenly came
loose, everything that was in
my pockets came flying out
and somehow my shoes
became untied.
My hearing had returned

Notes

Grand Admiral?
U.S. Admiral John
Nathman not only
served as the Grand
Marshal for this year's
running of the Mobil 1
12 Hours of Sebring, he
also was the honorary
flagman.
Nathman gave the
signal both for the start
America's oldest sports
car endurance race and
also waved the red flag
that signaled the end of
yesterday's Panoz sprint
race.
"He told us that if he
was going to be an hon-
orary flagman he was
going to wave a flag, so
we gave him the red one
and that was that," said
Panoz series manager
LisaKay Golde

New-look 'Vette
Fans used to seeing
the Velocity Yellow
Corvettes were sur-
prised Saturday morn-
ing to see the No. 3 car
running in Arctic White.
The color.scheme
with special accents was
designed to honor the
limited edition Ron
Fellows ALMS
Champion Corvette Z06,
and wasn't unveiled
until just before the
Race.
When asked whether
he preferred the yellow
or the white color
scheme, Fellows' team-
mate Johnny O'Connell
said, "I prefer first
place."
As for Fellows, he
said that from inside the
car, everything looks the
same as it did when the
car was yellow.

Lot full
It was another
bumper crowd at the
Sebring International
Raceway Saturday. The
track had to stop selling
parking passes at 8 a.m.
Saturday because there
were no spaces left.
Those arrivals had to
park outside the track
and take the tram into
the raceway.

Sponsorship deal
Officials at Mobil 1
have announced they
will continue for the
next three years as the
title sponsor at Sebring.
It extends one of the
longest running name
and title sponsorships in
the motorsports indus-
try, The accord now
runs through 2010.

Good hosts
There were plenty of
fans at the Raceway, but
none more dedicated
than those at Turn 10.
While attending the 24
Hours of Le Mans, they
met a group from
Holland.
This year, they are
hosting the dozen or so
Dutch enthusiasts here
at Sebring.
"We want to be an
asset to Sebring. We've
hosted people from
Spain, England, the
Netherlands, from all
over Europe," said
"Jupiter John" Gierue,
major domo of the


campsite.

HISTORY LESSON


15 YEARS AGO
March 17, 1992:The Sebring baseball team moved its record to 10-5 on the season with a 5-4 win
over district foe Bartow. Jady Hill, batting .613 entering the contest, kept up his hot hitting with a single
and the game-winning two-run double. Hill also saw some time on the mound due to a shortage of pitch-
ers for the Streaks busy schedule, relieving southpaw Eric Knott, who threw three innings of no-hit ball. -

20 YEARS AGO
March 19, 1987: The Sebring baseball team came out on the short end of a pitchers duel with
DeSoto, 1-0. Bulldogs starter Dennis Day gave up two hits to the Blue Streaks, while Sebring freshman
Gabe White surrendered just three hits and struck out 11.

Luby's edges Royal Palms


Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING-- Luby's edged Royal Palms
with a final score of 12-11 in Thursday's
Sebring Senior Softball League action at
Lincoln Heights as Harold Dinel banged out a
triple for the tying run in the bottom of the
eighth inning and Howard Southwick drove
him in on a fielder's choice for the winning
run.
Bob Weiss hit a home run and Charlie
Quinn smacked a double and had five RBIs for
Royal Palms.
Miller's Central Air topped Discount
Aluminum 15-5 at DeSoto City, with Millers
having good defensive plays and five players
with three hits each. Les Smith went 4-for-4
and Jim Larnard was 3-for-4 for Discount
Aluminum.
After a very emotional win on Tuesday, the
Salesman had a defensive letdown against the
Rebels, falling 15-14. The Salesman's first
batter up, Dick Harris, slammed a home run
for a good start, and getting three hits each
were Jerry Johnston (two doubles), Don
Cunningham, Rogue Socarros and Bob Flack.
For the Rebels, Stan Turl was 4-for-4 with a
homer and two doubles, Jim Strietzel was 4-
for-4 with a triple and Moose Morrissette was
3-for-4 with a home run and a triple.
On Tuesday, the Salesman rallied from an
11-0 deficit to shock Miller's Central Air, win-


Hay, we're the


ning 12-11 in the 10th inning. The Salesman
found the starter button and put the game in
high gear after falling behind through the first
four inning. They scored two runs in the sixth
inning, eight in the seventh and one in the
eighth inning to tie the game. Charlie Williams
drove in the winning run in the 10th.
Jerry Johnston pounded out a grand-slam
homer, Roque Socarros was 6-for-6 and exhib-
ited some good defensive plays and Carl
Brosius and Richard Godfrey had four hits
each. Dave Holloway went 3-for-4 for
Miller's.
At Lincoln Heights, Luby's rolled to a 20-7
win over Discount Aluminum. They attributed
their high score to great defense, including
four double plays. Every batter in the lineup
produced good hitting.
Discount Aluminum again was short of
players but they keep a very positive attitude.
Ken Crandall went 3-for-3 and scored three
runs and Paul Stevenson was 3-for-4, scoring
two runs.
In Lake Placid, Royal Palms outslugged
the Rebels 11-6. Bob Weiss pounded out a
home run, Bill Wilkes tripled and Brian Pluta
had a double for Royal Palms. Tony Caristo hit
a homer and was credited with three RBIs for
the Rebels, while Moose Morrissette belted a
triple and was 3-for-3 and Stan Turl was 3-for-
3 with a double.

55th Annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring


Curran




rules in




SPEED GT

Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Eric Curran mastered
tricky track conditions to win his first
SCCA Pro Racing SPEED World
Challenge GT race at Sebring
International Raceway Friday afternoon.
Reining SPEED GT Champion Lawson
Aschenbach and Tomy Drissi completed
the podium.
Shortly after the SPEED Touring Car
race at Sebring International Raceway,
the skies opened and pummeled the track
*with more than three hours of heavy rain
and strong winds. When the rained
ceased, two other racing series took to
the course before the SPEED GT race,
resulting in damp to drying conditions
and a tough tire decision for all the
teams.
With the sun beginning to peek
through the clouds, nearly all of the cars
opted for dry tires. To add another vari-
able to the equation, SPEED World
Challenge officials announced a rolling
start would be used in place of the tradi-
tional standing start, since the crown of
the front straight had left one side of the
grid significantly more wet than the
other.
When the green flag was displayed,
Curran wasted no time, rocketing around
polesitter Peterson into Turn 1 despite
not knowing the level of grip the pave-
ment held. The move earned Curran the
B&M Oil Coolers Coolest Move of the
Race Award. In only a matter of corners,
Curran pulled a considerable gap on the
rest of the pack, his No. 30 Whelen
Engineering Chevrolet Corvette C6 leav-
ing Peterson's eyesight.
Curran looked to be on track to a run-
away victory until a full-course yellow

erased his lead of 16.8 seconds.
On the lap 14 restart, Curran defended
his position from a hoard of Cadillacs
and Porsches to maintain the lead.
Although he wasn't able to regain the
same margin he held previous to the yel-
low-flag, Curran put his head down, set-
ting the race's fastest lap, a 2:11.005
(89.456 mph), on his way to the check-
ered flag.
"I wasn't real sure about the grip,"
Curran said. "It was risky at the begin-
ning. I put the power down and I actual-
ly had to steer the car down the front
straightaway. I got really close to (pole-
sitter Doug) Peterson at one point. I did-
n't know what to expect, but I really paid
attention on the warm-up lap of where
the puddles were and where I could and
couldn't go. We slipped and slid and got
by him."
Starting fifth in his No. 1 Cadillac
CTS-V, Aschenbach dropped a position
early, but bounced back in a big way,
resetting fast race lap on his way past
teammate Andy Pilgrim and into second


before the yellow flag came out.
Drissi, a former Trans-Am race winner
and latest addition to the LG Motorsports
Team, returned to the podium at Sebring
in his No. 15 Corvette C6.
"I was so excited to be out here,"
Drissi said. "At the start of the race, the
Porsches were really, really good in the
wet. I was a little more careful. Then I
started passing one car after another.
When I came up to another car, I got so
excited that I drove off the track. Then, I
caught back up to the same car and drove
off again! I had to start over twice. There
was so much happening out there. Third
place is great. There are a lot of really
good drivers out there."
A fourth place finish for five-time
series Champion Galati earned him the
Sunoco Hard Charger Award for advanc-
ing 11 positions throughout the race.
James Sofronas finished fifth in the No.
14 Porsche 911 GT-3.
The SPEED GT season opener from
Sebring will be broadcast on SPEED,
Sunday March 25, at 2:30 p.m. EDT.


Altenburg wins close Touring race


Special to the News-Sunit
SEBRING After going
three seasons without a win,
Jeff Altenburg grabbed his
third-career victory at Sebring
International Raceway, hold-
ing off teammate Randy Pobst
to take a .433-second win in
the closest finish ever for the
Touring event at Sebring.
Through all 18 laps of the
66.6-mile race, Altenburg,
driving the No. 72 Mazda 6,
faced continuous pressure
from Pobst and the crowd
couldn't tell where one Mazda
began and the other one
ended.
"I wasn't simply playing
wing man out there," Pobst
said. "I wanted to win that
race with all my heart and I
gave it all I had. Jeff had a
really strong car and had a
good day today."
Altenburg was also quick to

Johnny O'Connell and Jan Magnussen.
Team Modena's Aston Martin DBR9 fin-
ished third.
Action had started early Saturday
morning with the roar of the ALMS cars
in open testing acting as an alarm clock
for any late sleepers. As dawn broke at
7:30 a.m., the track already had been
alive for some time, with the smell of
breakfast permeating the air.
Early risers got a first look at the No.
3 Corvette, which had been repainted
from Velocity Yellow to Arctic White as
a tribute to the new Ron Fellows ALMS
GT1 Champion Corvette Z06. This
year's 12 Hours was the last for the vet-
eran Fellows.
Audi traded the overall race lead sev-
eral times with LMP2 cars. First to hold
the point was the Penske Porsche of
Timo Bernhard then Romain Dumas,
then in the fourth hour Dario Franchitti
took the lead in the LMP2 division in the
Andretti Green Acura ARX/01a.
There were several shunts in the race.
Among them were Adrian Fernandez's
Lowe's Acura contact with the No. 1
Audi R10 of Rinaldo Capello in Turn 13.
It damaged the nose of the Acura and
sent the Audi off course.
Earlier, the No. 1 Audi R10 of Tom
Kristensen made contact with the No. 16
Porsche Spyder of Butch Leitzinger it
caused damage to the sidepod of the
Audi. Kristensen also was given a stop-
and-go penalty.
The Corsa White Lightning Ferrari


credit his teammate for the
successful Mazda perform-
ance at Sebring and his first
win since 2003 at Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca.
"It feels awesome to win
and it was a perfect week-
end," Altenburg said. "First
pole in four years and that
was with the help of Randy
(Pobst). We decided we were
going to help each other out
more in qualifying and give
one another a pull down the
straights. We both got a clean
start. Worked together to not
do anything silly.
"Randy says he wanted to
win with all of his heart and
I'm sure he did, but I think he
could have pulled a move or
two during the race. But,
being teammates, he opted not
to and I appreciate that.
Seeing an orange-and-white


car behind you (RealTime
Acura) is a little more discon-
certing than having your
teammate right behind you.
Driving the No. 73
Mazdaspeed Motorsports
Development Mazda 6, Pobst
had to defend his position
from defending SPEED
Touring Car Champion
Kleinubing, before he could
make a bid for the lead. After
putting a small gap between
him and Kleinubing, Pobst
turned up the heat on Lap 11,
resetting the fastest race lap
and beginning to take a.cou-
ple looks at his teammate.
Starting fifth in his No.1
Acura Certified Pre-
Owned/RealTime Acura TSX,
Kleinubing putting serious
pressure on Pobst, occasional-
ly locking up tires in the
process.


Kleinubing began to fall
back shortly thereafter, but
did set the fastest lap of the
race with a 2:22.710 (93.336
mph) on lap 16 in one last
charge for the front. He
wound up third.
Chip Herr, finished fourth
in his No. 17 Audi A4 and
RealTime owner Peter
Cunningham completed the
top five in his No. 42 Acura
Certified Pre-
Owned/RealTime Acura TSX.
Charles Espenlaub (Mazda
6) managed a sixth place fin-
ish after starting 23rd, due to
suspension problems in quali-
fying and opting to change all
four tires before the race.
The season opener of the
SPEED Touring Car
Championship will be broad-
cast on SPEED Sunday,
March 25 at 1:30 p.m. EDT.

The No. 62 Ferrari won a thrilling battle in the GT2 class on Saturday.


430 GT brought out a full course yellow
when it caught fire in the hairpin turn.
Driver Jose Maria Lopez nursed the car
through the Chicane before he had to pull
it off the track. Turn workers with extin-
guisher put out the flames.
It seems that electrical problems and
tires were the big problem at the Mobil 1
12 Hours of Sebring. Both the Penske
Porsche Spyders had a couple of stops
for electrical issues and the No. 1 Audi
R10 TDI was in for an extended pit stop
as they replaced the batteries and starter.
The Horag-Lista had electronics prob-
lems as did the Highcroft Acura ARX-
Ola.
The Intersport Creation/Judd, the No.
2 Audi R 10 TDI, the No. 16 Dyson
Porsche and one of the Flying Lizard


Porsches had tire issues as well.
There were plenty of penalties over the
duration of the race. Stop-and-go assess-
ments were given to Ryan.Briscoe in the
No. 6 Porsche for starting the car while it
was up on the jackstands, the Audi teams
were both assessed for the fueler failing
to wear his safety goggles as was the
GT2 JMB Racing effort. The Team
Modena Aston Martin DBR9, the JMB
GT2 Ferrari, the No. 7 Penske Porsche
Spyder and the Tafel Racing Porsche 997
were penalized for speeding in the pits.
In all, it might well have been the
highest quality field at the Sebring
International Raceway in quite some
time and certainly some of the best rac-
ing in the American Le Mans Series in
recent memory.


Group got up-close
look at cars, drivers

By JACK HARRIS
Special to the News-Sun
SEBRING Sebring
Middle School teacher Gina
Hitt led several of her special
needs students through the
paddock Friday at Sebring
International Raceway.
They looked at and touched
racing cars and posed with a
former 12 Hours of Sebring
class winner.
Susan McMillan, also a
teacher at the school, helped
guide the youngsters along
the garage area.
Three interns students at
Sebring Middle School -
assisted Hitt and McMillan.
It was the second year in a
row that Tres Stephenson,
SIR president and general
manager, has agreed to allow
them access, Hitt said.


The group met Melanie
Snow, who later drove in the
support IMSA GT3 Cup race
which was shortened from a
scheduled 45-minute run to
30 minutes because of heavy
rain.
She was happy to meet with
the students, she said.
Snow won the GTS-1 class
here in 1999, finishing ninth
overall in the 12 Hours of
Sebring. Her husband,
Martin, and Patrick Huisman,
also drove stints in the No. 56
Porsche 911 Turbo, covering
285 laps.
Friday's IMSA race was
Melanie Snow's first drive in
a racing Porsche since that
run in 1999, she said.
"I was having babies," she
said when asked why the long
break.
The Snows have four chil-
dren. "My youngest is 2, so I
decided to start coming
back."

HOEHNE
Continued from ID
enough when I got to the
press box to get a sense of
the expanse of the 12 Hours.
Listening to the chattering
among the press corps, all
sorts of European accents
and languages could be dis-
cerned, and it gave me a
sense of awe that I just drove
about 10 miles from my
apartment to be here and
these ladies and gentlemen
had flown across the Atlantic
to cover this event.
Seeing the names of the
drivers on the pit notes being
continually handed to us con-
tinued that awed feeling,
with names like Sascha,
Wolf, Mika, Romain and
Emmanuel and last names
that make me glad I just have
to spell them right rather
than try to pronounce them.
So now it was time to set-
tle in and view a bit of the
racing from press row.
It wasn't quite so loud and
it was pretty neat seeing all
the variety of cars rocketing
by along the front straight.
We also had the benefit of
TV's up there, which allowed
us to see the torturous lap of
Frank Biela in the No. 2
Audi.
Just coming out of the pits,
he lost his left-rear tire and
had to make his way all the
way around, quite slowly, on
three tires losing two laps
to the field in the process.
It was interesting to read
in the pit notes of the 20-sec-
ond penalties incurred during
pit stops for offenses ranging
from speeding in pit row, a
fueler not having his goggles
down, a crew member jump-
ing over the wall before the
car was stopped and the driv-
er starting the car before it
was off the jacks.
As interesting as it was in
press row, however, with a
sunny sky and the endless
sea of campers, tents and
RVs that made up "Raceway
City," I had to go meander-
ing and see what all the 12
Hours included.
There were plenty of dif-
ferent food options. In addi-


tion to the usual fare of hot
dogs, hamburgers, cheese
steaks and brats, there were
also fried Twinkies, funnel
cakes, turkey legs and more
types of meat on a stick than
you could, well, shake a stick
at.
There were all sorts of car
displays from the various
companies, a rock-climbing
wall and a mechanical bull
for some diversions.
There was also a psychic
and a tattoo parlor. Shortly
after walking past the tattoo
place, I saw a shirtless man
in shorts with his entire (visi-
ble) body covered in tattoos,
making me wonder if it was
an advertisement for the
place, or a public service
announcement against body
art.
Venturing down along
other parts of the Raceway, I
again thought how neat it
was to see these different
classes of cars racing at the
same time.
I also had the random
thought, wondering if when
one of the P1 cars is coming
up behind a GT2 car, is he
thinking, "Outta the way pip-
squeak!"
There were no big crashes
in the race that I saw, but
there was surely some bump-
ing along the course as I saw
cars with duct tape on vari-
ous parts, making me realize
how much of an endurance
race this is.
They may have multiple
drivers to run the 10 a.m.-to-
10 p.m. race, but only one
car.
One high-powered race car
that has to make it through
12 hours, so they're going to
hold them together with
whatever they've got.
As enjoyable as the day
was, it was an endurance test
for me as well.
With so many things to see
and do, I could have used
another driver or two to spell

After my first 12 Hours of

later this year in ALMS

News-Sun correspondent
SEBRING A Florida-based
team may soon become the newest
competitors in the American Le
Mans Series. Officials from
Porsche Motorsport North America,
the ALMS and CET/Solaroli
Motorsports gathered Thursday
evening at Sebring International
Raceway to announce Jacksonville
businessman Al Solaroli will debut
the effort later this year.
"We are very, very pleased that
after Dyson (Racing), Mr. Al
Solaroli chosen Porsche," said
President of Porsche Motorsport
North America Uwe Brettel. "We
are absolutely fascinated with Al
and his commitment to this organi-
zation. This will be a great addition
to the ALMS."
Dyson Racing switched from
Lola to Porsche RS Spyders prior to
the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Brettel said the deal had been a
year in the making, with Solaroli
asking about the support package as
well as the car. He said factory sup-
port traditionally involves help
with everything from engineering
to public relations and logistics.
Solaroli announced he would
field both LMP2 and GT2 cars in
the upcoming season. When that
happens, it will be the first time in
ALMS history a team will have
contested two different divisions
simultaneously.
"When we introduced the
Spyder, we announced it would be a
customer car. First it was with
Penske Motorsports, then Dyson
Racing and now CET," said Bob
Carlson of Porsche North America.
Penske's run with the car after a
shaky start at Sebring was impres-
sive, capturing the ALMS LMP2
championship, team championship,

drivers' championship, plus the
engine and chassis manufacturer's
championship for Porsche.
Earlier this year, Dyson Racing
became the next customer for the
car and now CET has made their
announcement. Carlson said this
most recent sales of race cars was
nothing new for Porsche.
"This is really an extension of
Porsche Motorsports customer rac-
ing program that we have been ded-
icated to dating back to the 935
days in the 1970s," he said.
Saying his organization was "not
a backyard team," Solaroli predict-
ed the marriage between CET and
Porsche would be a strong and a
very happy one.
As to who will drive the cars, the
two divisions will be segmented
with top-notch American, Canadian
and European drivers for the LMP2
car while the GT2 effort would be
used as a sort of "farm team" to
develop new driving talent. In
either instance, Solaroli said the


aim is to head to the front of the
field.
"We will have drivers that will
take these cars where we expect
them to go," he said.
Noting that they were in "sensi-
tive negotiations" at this time with
some drivers, Solaroli declined to
release any names, however, he
predicted announcements of who
they are could be made as soon as a
week to 10 days.
Because the team would make its
debut sometime around mid-sea-
son, Solaroli said 2007 would be
used to gain information. That
being said, he pledged that his cars
would be contenders in any race
they might enter.
This is not the first collaboration
between Porsche and Florida racing
teams. Both the very successful
Champion Racing and Alex Job
Racing are headquartered in the
Sunshine State. Both are former
Sebring winners and both have stel-
lar records in the ALMS ...,
