June 21, 1992: Schools, Parents Debate Proposed Anti-drug Policy  Wolfgang is quoted in an article about curbing teen alcohol use, foreshadowing thread that will become prominent in his own family life in the years to come:

School Board members want a countywide policy because they say there is serious alcohol and drug problem in the district. High school officials routinely snag fliers on campuses announcing keg parties and overhear stories in hallways about weekend drinking binges.

”I’ve taken about 35 fliers this year talking about a big keg party,” said Wolfgang Halbig, assistant principal at Lyman High School in Longwood. ”How do you prevent this? Do we turn our backs or get involved?”

Splitsville: Divorce between Halbig and Kathleen

August 12, 1992: A temporary relief is recorded relating to the marriage of Wolfgang and Kathleen Halbig. This indicates that a divorce has been initiated.

Investigators have been unable to 100% confirm any of the theories as to why the Halbigs ended their divorce at this point in time, however, it is noted in records that the divorce was initiated by Kathleen Halbig.

November 25, 1992, Stun Gun Could Mean Expulsion For Student

Another article from the Orlando Sentinel, this time about a student being caught with a “stun gun” at his school, quotes  “Lyman Assistant Principal Wolfgang Halbig.” Halbig, who had no independently documented involvement with school security before this event, takes special note that a student called the school to report the danger:

Halbig, who once worked as a state trooper in Miami, said the electric device can really zap a person.

”It can really hurt you and cause serious damage,” he said. ”It’s not something you bring to school.”

He was heartened that the tip came from students. ”They didn’t want to see anyone else get hurt,” he said. ”There are a lot of good kids who are really getting sick of all this.”
