Reporter Allison Boggs has an excellent story in today's paper about 13-year-old racing phenom Nicole Behar of Otis Orchards. She's a fourth generation race car driver already winning races at the Stateline Speedway even though she can't legally drive down the street yet. Allison and photographer Kathy Plonka teamed up to put together a fabulous package on this girl, who will be in the eighth grade this fall. My favorite quote? "I'd rather race than shop."
