Athlete of the Week: Andrew Weber

Andrew Weber can juggle with the best of them. Even with pressure from coaches and teachers, he never drops the ball.

Houston County soccer coach Jason Kirk says, "Andrew loves pressure. He really does. He kind of thrives with it. The more he's required to do, he'll actually put forth more effort."

Weber spends most of his time practicing on the pitch.

He says, "I pretty much play every day. If I don't have school practice, I usually go play with friends. I have ODP practice on Sundays, and sometimes club practice in Columbus."

All of his hard work paid off when he set foot on the field for his junior season. Weber ranks as one of the leading scorers for the Bears with 23 goals and 8 assists.

Kirk says, "He's working harder than most guys. He never complains. He loves to win so that really drives him. He likes being the best."

Warner Robins Students Tour Jet-Powered Bus

Some students at Warner Robins Huntington Middle School got a chance to see a school bus on blast Thursday.

It was a school bus with a jet engine on the back.

Paul Stender from Indy Boys Inc. out of Indiana designed it with a jet engine from an F-4 phantom aircraft.

It can reach top speeds of 360 miles per hour, he said.

You can see the bus in action this weekend at the Robins Air Force Base Air Show.

Stender races the bus against a plane twice Saturday and twice on Sunday.

He said, "It looks like a fighter jet when it takes off. We only have the fire come out when were doing our fire show, when were doing it slow, because it draws at 60-percent. When were in full throttle, it looks just like a jet, got the shock waves come out the back 10 feet or so."

Stender says firing up the jet engine takes about 150 gallons of fuel, which costs him about $900. That's why he didn't crank it up in the school parking lot.

John Williams Convicted on All Three Charges

A federal jury Wednesday convicted John Williams on all three charges against him.

They found him guilty of extortion under color of official right, making false statements to a federal officer and tampering with a witness.

Williams did not react as the verdict was read. His wife, son and daughter sat behind him the courtroom, and also showed no reaction.

Judge Marc Treadwell set Williams free until his sentencing. The court decided Williams was not a danger to the community and not a flight risk.

Williams will be confined to his home and required to follow all of the conditions of his probation. Treadwell said. "The law favors taking you into custody after a jury verdict", but he intends to give Williams a chance at following the rules set by the court.

Williams thanked the judge for the opportunity. Then, he the former Warner Robins council member left the courtroom quietly with his family. His attorney, Tina Hunt, had no comment.
