CEO - Porsche's Risky Recipe
Topic: Cars and Trucks 10:49 am EST, Feb  4, 2003

] With his twinkly eyes and durable smile, Wendelin
] Wiedeking doesn't look like a fighter. But the Porsche
] CEO loves a good scrap. Taking principled but unpopular
] positions, then defending them to the death, is his
] nature. When the German government offered $97.5 million
] in subsidies in 1999 to help Porsche build a new assembly
] plant, for example, Wiedeking turned it down. He said he
] wanted to protect Porsche customers from complaints that
] taxpayers were subsidizing their expensive tastes. He has
] also rebuffed Porsche executives who want stock options.
] In fact, he won't even let them buy company stock.
] Wiedeking worries that in a company as small as Porsche
] (fiscal 2002 revenues were less than $5 billion), almost
] every decision could affect the share price and thus lead
] to suspicions of insider trading.

Traffic jam at school caused by kids' golf carts
Topic: Cars and Trucks 12:17 am EDT, Oct  6, 2002

Kids in an upscale Georgia community aren't taking the bus to school or riding their bikes - they're driving golf carts.

And the principal at McIntosh High School says all those carts are creating a traffic jam.

Teens as young as 15 are allowed to drive golf carts in Peachtree City. Matt Herbel, a 10th-grader, says it's getting tough to find a parking space. He wants the school to build a parking lot just for the students' golf carts. But school officials say there's not enough land on campus for a new lot.

Meanwhile, police are warning they may ticket or tow illegally parked golf carts. The kids might have to walk home.
