Prosecuting adolescents as adults ineffective deterrent

University employee carries torch, helps bring the Olympic spirit to Daytona Beach

Beth Barnes, senior executive assistant to the president, was a Coca-Cola "Share the Spirit" runner, carrying the Olympic torch from Mainland High School in Daytona Beach to the UCF-Daytona Beach campus on July 8. She ran on day 73 of the ceremonial run that has traversed the country. She was provided with the running outfit she wore and was required to attend "torch school" to learn how to carry the torch safely. Barnes was applauded by hundreds of spectators along the streets during her run. When she was mobbed by people afterwards, she complied with requests to pose for photographs and give autographs. Many just wanted to touch the torch. Barnes purchased the torch she carried, an option given all runners. Sarah Pappas, director for Daytona Beach campus, also carried the torch as a "community hero."
