Team Pop Trivia

By GINA VIVINETTO

This week's winner: Kathy Carufel of Brooksville knew that singer/actor Kris Kristofferson (andFred Foster) wrote Me & Bobby McGee, with which Janis Joplin scored a hit after she died.

This week's question: The guys in Lynyrd Skynyrd, who perform Saturday night at the Ice Palace, named the band in the late 1960s after Leonard Skinner, their high school gym teacher, who hated long-haired hippie types. For all the money -- okay, for the chance to get your name in the random drawing for the Southern-fried Times T-shirt, tell me the city in which these boys went to high school.
