A: I'm 62. I moved here from Fayette-

17 years.
Q: Where were you raised?
A: I was born in Knoxville but I really
grew up in Chattanooga, Tenn.
Q: Why did you move to Plant City?
A: I needed to be close to my parents.
There's a verse in the Bible that says if
you don't take care of your parents
you're worse than an infidel. I took care
of my dad until he died. My mother is 95
and she lives in Venice.

Turkey Vultures Bite Bullet


SHOOTINGS AIM
TO LIMIT NUISANCE
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
The sound of shotgun blasts
shattered the stillness in the pre-
dawn hours last week as 20 to 60
turkey vultures, depending on
who was counting, paid the
ultimate price for creating a nui-
sance for some lakeside residents
at Walden Lake.
About 6:30 in the morning, 30
minutes before daybreak, with
police standing by and the buz-
zards still roosting in the trees,


four residents from Walden Lake,
supervised by Tom Duramus, the
general manager of the Walden
Lake Community Association,
fired shotguns into several trees
overhanging the asphalt trail and
foot bridges that circle the lake.
Shots were fired for almost 30
minutes, witnesses said.
"We followed all of the guide-
lines required by the federal Fish
and Wildlife Commission," Dura-
mus said. "We've tried everything
we could think of to get rid of
them. After following all of the
suggestions provided by the
state, it was decided that the

Turkey vultures have returned to the trees bordering Walden Lake off
Golfview Drive, causing complaints from homeowners in the area who
report damage to homes, pool enclosures, rooftops and walking trails.

Candlelight Tour Illuminates Citys History


HISTORICAL SOCIETY
EVENT DEC. 17
Staff Report
There's a little history on
every corner in Plant City, say
leaders of the East Hills-
borough Historical Society.
And the group plans to prove
it with its 2005 Candlelight


Tour of Homes Dec. 17 from 6
to 8:30 p.m.
"It gives people a real
appreciation of homes within
the city's historic district,"
said Shelby Bender, president
of the historical society and
chairwoman of the Quintilla
Geer Bruton Archives Center.
The self-led tour, which is in
its 13th year, begins at the
archives center in the 1914


Plant City High School Com-
munity Center, 605 N. Collins
St. There are three homes on
the tour, all within a short dis-
tance of the community
center.
"We give out a map with a
brochure with a brief descrip-
tion of the home," Bender
said,
Sidewalk luminaries along
the tour route also add to the


ambiance, she said. "It gives a
feeling of warmth to the
neighborhood."
Tickets for the walking tour
are $15 a person; a walking
tour with dessert and coffee is
$20 a person; and a walking
tour with dinner (including
dessert and coffee) is $30 a
person.
The tour is a fundraiser for
the archives and historical


society.
Tickets will be issued at the
community center beginning
at 5:30 p.m. Homes on the
tour will open at 6.
For more information and/
or reservations, contact the
historical society at 757-9226;
Bender at 754-3577 or sben-
derpc@aol.com; or the
archives center at 754-7031 or

Firefighters Honored


At Ceremony Tonight


TWO NAMED
FIREFIGHTERS OF 2005
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
The Plant City Fire Rescue
career and reserve firefighters
for 2005 will receive awards
Dec. 15 at the Plant City Elks
Lodge on Alexander Street.
The invitation only dinner
and award ceremony will
name Capt. Rick Sullivan and
reserve firefighter Amanda
Gilley for their actions last
November. Both where part of
a very unique rescue effort
involving a multiple car and
train collision at the corner of
Collins and Laura streets.
Sullivan, a 12-year veteran
on the fire-rescue team, was
the shift Captain on duty when
a call went out concerning a
two car accident in the CSX
Railroad right of way on
Collins Street.
"We knew the cars were
blocking the tracks as we were
responding to the call," Sulli-
van said. "Our dispatcher
notified the railroad of the
accident and notified them of
the wreck."
At about 8:15 p.m., a 1984
Ford Tempo driven by Ken-
neth Scantleburry, 106 S. Gor-
don St., and a 1997 Mercury
Mountaineer driven by Paul
Gonzalez Falcon, 1505 Wake-
field Dr., Brandon, were
involved in the crash. A pas-
senger in the Mountaineer


had minor injuries sustained
in the crash and was trapped
in the vehicle. Only seconds
after the first fire rescue vehi-
cle arrived on the scene the
signal lights at the crossing
started flashing, indicating a
train was approaching.
Sullivan and Gilley and
other safety personnel forced
the passenger side door open
and removed Petrin Lopez, 65
years old, 307 E. Tomlin St.,
from the passenger side of the
Mountaineer. Gilley, who has
been a PCFR reserve firefighter
fore more than three years,
helped Lopez to the sidewalk
north of the tracks.
"We could here the train
coming from the north," Gilley
said. "We were safe there but
gathering pedestrians had to
be warned to stay back."
The train engineer, Ronnie
Williafis, of Tampa, was
unable to see the cars due to a
90 degree curve just east of the
intersection. The train, limited
to 25 miles per hour on the
curve, struck both vehicles on
the track and sent the Tempo
rolling into a police cruiser,
causing minor damage.
"Through the quick actions
of Capt. Sullivan, Reserve Fire-
fighter Gilley and the other
safety personnel a real tragedy
was avoided," said Fire Chief
George Shiley.
Sullivan estimates that the
train struck the cars 45 to 60
seconds after his fire unit
arrived at the scene.

City Sets 2006 Legislative Priorities


WILL CARRY REQUESTS

TO TALLAHASSEE
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
Plant City commissioners
approved a list of priorities
Dec. 12 it would like the state
to consider during the upcom-
ing legislative session.
I City officials will present
the list to the Hillsborough
County Legislative Delegation
Dec. 16 at the Sam and Martha
Gibbons Alumni Center at the
University of South Florida.
Mayor John Dicks and other
members of the commission
and city staff are expected to
be there to make a brief pre-
sentation about 9:45 a.m.
Michael Karr, the assistant
to the city manager, is finaliz-
ing the list of priorities. The
list includes a request for $3


million from the state for the
Eastside Canal stormwater
master plan; a historic
resources grant of $180,000 for
the Bing Boarding House; and
several requests involving
home rule decision making
for municipalities regarding
community redevelopment,
the collection of impact fees
and a local option for gasoline
taxes.
Commissioner Bill Dodson,
voicing his concern for the
lack of revenue sources
needed to build and improve
roads in the area, asked Karr
to include on the list a request
for such funds.
Commissioner Rick Lott, a
member of the Hillsborough
County Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization, which allo-
cates state and federal funds
for transportation projects,
said that without matching


funds or right of way owner-
ship by local governments, the
state is not likely to approve
any road building projects.
Lott, who is also a member
of the state task force for
impact fee regulation, said the
city needs to ask the state to
continue a 30-year precedent
for home rule on imposing
and the use of impact fees.
"If it is at all possible, I
would like each of the com-
missioners to be there on the
16th," Dicks said. "Our pre-
sentation will be brief but
strength in numbers would
help us make a statement with
the delegation."
In other action, the com-
mission:
Accepted the ranking of
firms that responded to a
request to design, purchase
and integrate a traffic man-
agement system for the city.


Gord and Associates of
Tampa, was the highest rated
firm. The company will
upgrade the city's traffic signal
system, and the adjacent out-
lying areas in the county to
coordinate traffic during high
volume occurrences. The $3
million system is being paid
for mainly with federal and
state funds.
Continued until Jan. 9 a
public hearing on mixed-use
regulations for commercial-
residential properties in the
historic downtown district.
Continued a public hear-
ing on proposed regulation
variances for a private road
and utilities within the 1-4
Business Center, an industrial
subdivision planned north of
the interstate and 1/4-mile
east of Paul Buchman High-
way.

one of the "30 Under 30 Stars
of Tampa Bay" for 2005 by the
Tampa Bay Business Journal.
"I was very excited and sur-
prised just to be nominated,"
Closshey said. "It is quite an
honor."
Selecting the winners is a
multi-stage process. First,
nominations are sent in and
reviewed. Those are whittled
down and nominees are asked
to send additional personal
information. The winners are
selected from that group. "It's
mind-boggling to think they
would deem me worthy to be
part of such a prestigious
group."


There were more than 100
nominees for the award.
Closshey, 24, holds two
bachelor's degrees, one in
marketing management and
one in exercise science.
She is vice president of
Ideas & Innovations Inc., a,
business, talent and consult-
ing firm in Plant City, as well
as a classically trained violin-
ist with an international per-
formance and production
schedule.
She is a member of the
American Cancer Society
Southeast Hillsborough board
of directors, The Spring of
Tampa Bay, American
Business Woman's Associa-
tion and the Plant City Cham-
ber of Commerce. She was a
YMCA board member from
1999-2004.
She served as director of


Touching Tomorrow Inc., a

arships to youth in the Tampa

appointed by Gov. Jeb Bush to
the Florida Film and Enter-
tainment Advisory Council,
serving on the membership
and education committees.
Closshey, who just returned
from a national tour of "My
Fair Lady" with the Theater for
the Stars, is currently working
on performing with her violin
and some roles in indepen-
dent films.
"If I had to pick just one I
would lean toward acting, it's
a tremendous outlet for
expression. But I can't imag-
ine not having the music."
Closshey can be reached by
e-mail at cclosshey@ideas-

Undying Gratitude ForAn American Hero Maul brings


Like those commercials for
Hallmark or long-distance tel-
ephone companies, it was
one of those feats of filmhnmak-
ing designed to put a lump in
your throat.
The tribute to the Armed
Forces produced by
Anheuser-Busch showed a
group of battle-weary soldiers
entering an airport after (the
viewer is led to assume)
completing a tour of duty in
the Middle East. Their
expressions are solemn as
they walk through the gates
and all heads turn to watch
their arrival. Then, one by
one, the travelers, the airport
employees and ticket agents
begin clapping. Soon the
airport is filled with
spontaneous applause in
gratitude to the men and
women who have been
risking their lives in war.
The expressions turn to
pride, as the soldiers accept
handshakes and pats on the
back.
After watching the film, my
10-year-old son asked me if I
thought such a thing really
happened in airports when
service men and women
return home.
"I'm not sure," I said. "But I
hope so."
Yes, I sincerely hope we.
haven't become so blas6
about the courage and
dedication it takes to serve
our country that we would
neglect to show our military

football team, was killed in
Iraq Thanksgiving Day.

personnel our gratitude.
However, I remember a
time in the not-too-distant
past when Americans became
inured to body counts and
flag-draped coffins.
I was a teenager before I
knew what it was like to live in
peacetime. The Vietnam War
hung over my childhood,
forever shadowing my
perception of the world.
I can still see my mother
anxiously watching the news,
dreading any mention of the


downing of an American
aircraft for fear it might be my
uncle, an Air Force colonel
who flew regular missions
over Vietnam.
I remember neighbors
guardedly retrieving their
mail, hoping against hope
that the next round of draft
notices wouldn't send their
sons into that forsaken
jungle.
And I recall cringing
whenever a classmate with a
brother or father in Vietnam
was quickly ushered out of
class by a teary eyed relative.
In all that time, I don't
recall ever seeing anyone
applaud for our service men
and women, in or out of an
airport.
On the contrary, the guys I
knew who served in Vietnam
changed into civvies before
they disembarked for fear of
becoming a target of war
protesters. There were no
"Welcome Home" signs, no
flags unfurled in their honor,
no pats on the back. The
soldiers either returned home
one by one as unobtrusively
as possible or en masse in
body bags unceremoniously
piled in a cargo plane.
I remember the brother of a
soldier killed in Vietnam
telling me how he watched
his father rip up the form
letter from President Richard
Nixon consoling him on the
death of his son and telling
him how grateful the nation


was for his sacrifice.
There were no outward
signs of gratitude from our
nation, which made the
sacrifice seem all the more
pointless.
It was a shameful time in
our history, and I pray we
never repeat it. No matter
how we personally feel about
the war, I'd hate for the
Delgado family to ever think
we aren't grateful for the
sacrifice their son, Marc,
made for his country.
Army Pfc. Marc Delgado,
21, of Lithia was killed
Thanksgiving Day when a
bomb exploded near his
Humvee in Baghdad.
A 2003 Durant High School
graduate, who played on the
football team's offensive line,
Marc was a 6-foot-3-inch,
230-pound powerhouse. He
must have seemed
invulnerable to those who
knew him, making his death
all the more of a shock.
As my heart ached for his
family, I couldn't help but
wonder if Marc ever heard the
sound of spontaneous
applause as he made his way
through an airport.
More importantly, I wonder
if he knows we're applauding
him now?

Christian

message alive
I am currently a
student at Ashury Theo:
logical Seminary in
Orlando, a cherished wife
and a mother of three
children.
So many times days are
filled to the brim and
there isn't time to sit and
read much of anything
beyond the required
readings for my classes.
However, Derek Maul's
articles in The Courier
have caught my undi-
vided attention over the
last several months.
I just wanted to say
thank you for the
thoughtful reflection and
creative writing abilities
in these columns that
bring the Christian
message alive to a world
so in need. It is with
much anticipation I look
into The Courier each
week; not only to find out
the happenings of the
community I live in, but
to see the words of Derek
Nlaul.
Thank you for the
dedication in these
articles, to this commu-
nity through writing and
to Christ whom it is
evident you serve.
Grace and peace. As
God gives, so shall you.

Pam Mecham of Alcoa presents a check for $8,000 to Scott Warren, director of the Plant City YMCA at the YMCA's youth

no one will be turned away due to an inability to pay," Warren said. "This is only possible through the generosity of busi-
nesses and individuals in the community." The Plant City YMCA awarded more than $60,000 in scholarships in 2005.

VULTURES


Continued From Page 1
shooting was the only thing left."
Police Capt. John Borders said one
officer stood by to monitor the shoot.
This year was the second in a row
turkey vultures have been shot at Wal-
den Lake. In fall 2003, Duramus
applied for a renewable permit. to
shoot the buzzards. He witnessed two
shoots in 2004. This year, he expects to
renew the permit again to shoot more
birds in the fall.
Turkey vultures are a migratory bird
that arrive in this area in the fall and
leave again in the spring. Each year,
the returning flock seems to get bigger,
Duramus said.
After receiving calls from homeown-
ers and verifying their complaints,


Duramus followed guidelines pro-
vided by the state and tried to chase
away the roosting birds.
The state suggests those who are
bothered by the nuisance birds, bird
droppings and other related damages,
use firecrackers, if legal, make other
loud noises, shake the roosting trees at
night, and other direct methods, such
as high pressure water, to encourage
the birds to relocate.
"They also suggested we hang dead
buzzards in the roosting trees to dis-
courage them from staying," Duramus
said. "That may have worked some-
where else. It didn't work for us."
Complaints from Walden Lake resi-
dents included odors, bird droppings,


roof damage and pool enclosure dam-
ages.
Rueben Austell said he was in favor
of whatever it takes to get rid of the
birds.
"I have been living here since 1998,"
Austell said. "The number of vultures
roosting around here is horrible. They
were just as bad two years ago. Shoot-
ing them seems to be the only way to
get rid of them. As much damage as
they do to my property, they can shoot
them all as far as I'm concerned."
One resident said he would have
appreciated some warning before the
shooting started.
."We will find a way to announce our
intentions and the timing of the shoot


next time," Duramus said.
Another resident questioned
whether the shooters were able to
retrieve all the downed animals, esti-.
mating that about 60 birds were killed,
with half of them ending up in the
lake.
"Some of the birds fell in the lake
and sank," Duramus said. "We
retrieved all that we could, bagged
them up and disposed of them. We
couldn't get them all."
A survey of the immediate area off
Golfview Drive found one dead vulture
submerged in an estuary. A 6-foot alli-
gator was on the adjacent bank, staring
into the water where the downed bird
lay.

BETTY'S PLACE


WriterFinds Treasure On Trip


Plant City is blessed to have
the best of Brenda Paul, wife,
mother, poet, songwriter and
someday novelist.
Brenda and her husband
recently celebrated their 35th
wedding anniversary on
Amelia Island, their favorite
vacation spot in northeast
Florida.
While there, they strolled
historic Centre Street in
Fernandina Beach and visited
the unique shops. As they
visited a bookstore for some
Christmas gifts, Brenda
happened on a coffee table
book, "The Best of Amelia
Now Volume Two," which is a
compilation of the "best"
articles from the quarterly
magazine, Amelia Now. Back
in 2000, she had submitted
her very first article, "Missing
Amelia" to the magazine and
they published it. She also
submitted the piece to a
district level competition of
the National League of
American Pen Women and
placed in the top three
winners of the nonfiction
category.
"As I looked through the
book that day, I thought,
'Wouldn't it be a real hoot if


BETTY
BRIGGS
Columnist


my article were included in
this?'"
Well, never thinking to look
in the index, she thumbed
through the book and when
she turned the final page,
there it was, "Missing
Amelia!" Brenda says she
squealed and giggled and
practically danced over to the
register to buy the book.
Congratulations and I feel
sure Brenda's novel dream
will come true.

Joyce family will
be flying high
The ayes have it.


Now that Randy and Shirley
Joyce's daughter Krista Joyce
Holloway has moved to Dallas
where son Jason works for
Western Extrusions, the kids
and grandkids have taken a
vote. It's unanimous. Randy
and Shirley must keep airline
tickets in pocket for holidays,
birthdays and vacations.
Jason and Alynn Joyce have
two children Aly and Carter.
Don't look for Randy to follow
in the kid's footsteps though.
"Plant City is home," he says.

Newman's own
And babies make six-
Newmans, that is.
Kenny, a supervisor for A
Stepping Stone A/C, and
Kristen, a nurse for Hills-
borough County Health
Department, welcomed twin
boys Adam Joseph and
Branden John a minute a
part Nov. 5.
Siblings Zack and Kayla,
grandparents Dennis and
Rhonda Thomas, and George
and Ruth Manginelli, all of
Plant City, are overjoyed. God
bless you all.

Painters have a masterpiece
Frances Painter, who taught


chemistry at Hillsborough
Community College and now
lives in Hillsdale, Mich., with
husband Joe, a radiologist,
tells me she is now a proud
grandmother.
Son Frederick Groth and
wife, Kristi, from Nebraska,
became parents to Ryan over
the Thanksgiving holiday.
God bless you all.

Kurchinskis welcome daughter
Another former resident,
Frank Kurchinski, a planner
with WCI for years, and wife,
Ali, welcomed a new
daughter, Caroline, in
November.
Little sister Jacque is
delighted with the new
addition, and all are doing
well in the Tarpon Springs
area.

Kiwanis birthdays
Plant City Kiwanis Club
November birthday and
anniversary blessings go to
Anna Reitz, Susan Baggett,
Ken Buchman and Rich
Glorioso and Jim and Jennifer
Brown, Robert and Wendy
Brown, Matt and Mary Buzza,
Mac and Sharon Hooper, and
Rich and Judy Glorioso.

Heavenly butterflies
Donna Ashley of Dover,


affectionately known as the
Butterfly Lady, tracks the
migration of monarchs in her
back yard through a program
from the University of Kansas.
I saw her recently and
learned that's not her only
interest. She has a children's
book coming out soon that
teaches God's principles
through knowledge of butter-
flies.
If you'd like to talk to her
about her book or what plants
to put in your yard that attract
the state butterfly, the zebra
longwing, I know this lovely
lady will answer any ques-
tions you have. Call: 659-1194.
-
And there's more...
I want to thank everyone
who takes time to send me
news. I've got several stories
in the wings, the Hinson
anniversary, Kathryn Peters-
Brown's first fish and others,
that I'll be sharing in the
upcoming weeks. Some of you
feel it's boastful to send me
your news, but I look at as
weekly blessings, and you can
never have enough of those!

Memorial Recalls Loved Ones


'He would want

me here,'

says one mom
By KEVIN BRADY
kbrady@mediageneral.com
Lance Cpl. James Ronald Phillips died
Dec. 23, 2004. But his memory was alive
and well Dec. 8 at a special Christmas
memorial service at Wells Memorial
Funeral Home.
"I know he would want me to be here,"
said Lisa Phillips of her only child. "I don't
want him to be forgotten."
The 21-year-old U.S. Marine was killed
by Iraqi insurgents.
Phillips joined more than 100 others at
the service, which included three local
pastors, songs and a reading of the names
of the dead.
"The first Christmas without a loved
one is the hardest to get through," said
Verna McKelvin, officer manager at Wells.
Wells has been hosting the event for six
years.
A widow herself, McKelvin remembers
what it was like that first Christmas.


"It was very hard," she said. "You see
everyone with family, but our family was
torn up. But a service like this can give
people at least one hour to dedicate to that
person they have lost."
The memorial service gives those who
are grieving a chance to share that pain
and perhaps connect with others, McKel-
vin said.
'They might meet someone here who is
going through the same thing," she said.
Eleanor Johnson sat quietly remember-
ing her father, Leslie Cummings, during
the service.
"It's a time to reflect on our loved ones
and share with others who may be just
going through it," she said.
Grace Paul remembered her mom,
Bessie DeShong, and brother, Archie,
during the service.
"The pastors had a good message for
everyone here tonight," Paul said.
Jim Rodriguez of Turkey CreekAssembly
of God participated in the first Christmas
memorial service at Wells and has been
back for every one since. Rodriguez, one of
three pastors who addressed the more
than 100 people who gathered for the
service, said the holidays can be difficult
for those who have lost a loved one.


"It can be especially lonely for those
people," he said. "They need to be
reminded of some truths, like God is a God
of comfort and love."
Pastor Jim Brady of East Thonotosassa
Baptist Church said those who are griev-
ing might want to isolate, "but we need to
talk it out or we may take it out on others.
We need other people at this time."
Relating a story to the audience of a
friend who once asked him how to avoid
becoming bitter, Brady had two sugges-
tions: accept what you cannot change and
appreciate what you still have.
"Focus on what's left and not what's
lost," he said.
Pastor Don Mason of Evangelical Pres-
byterian Church suggested looking to
heaven for our "balcony people," or lost
loved ones.
"They are now cheering you on and tell-
ing you to throw off your hindrances. And
at the end of our race, (we will meet) all
those people we are remembering
tonight," he said.
The Christmas memorial service also
says something about the community,
Brady said. "It speaks well of the funeral
home and this community," he said. "Not
every community does this."

Three pastors, Jim Rodriguez of Turkey Creek Assembly of God, left, Jim Brady of East Thonotosassa Baptist Church and Don Mason
of Evangelical Presbyterian, took part in the service.

16 THE COURIER DECEMBER 15, 2005


SPIRIT
Continued From Page 1
like the down-home friendli-
ness of the people. I know an
amazing number of people,
probably a third of the people
in Plant City a 10th of the
people are members here.
(The church's congregation is
a little more than 3,000). I feel
a part of the community. It's
great being in touch with so
many people.
Q: Care to share an: embar-
rassing or unusual moment?
A: When Bob Lovelace was
my neighbor, I heard a noise
outside the house real early in
the morning. I stuck my head
out and the wind blew the
door closed. I started yelling
."Bob, I need a pair of pants."
That's a pretty unusual request
from your pastor.
Q: What is your favorite
Christmas carol?
A: I like "Hark the Herald
Angels Sing." The symbolism
and the thought of the angels
praising God is a strong
image.
Q: Do you know any good
preacher jokes?
A: I know a pile of good
preacher jokes, but they'd
probably be too long! I could
tell you 15 stories but it would
be your whole article. We have
a great Christmas Eve service,
it's probably our nicest service.
This lady came up to me at the
service and said, "It's my
daughter's birthday, do you
think everybody could sing
'Happy Birthday' to her?" I
came that close to saying, "Is
her name Jesus?" She totally
missed what it was all about.
Q: If someone gave you
$100,000 (no strings attached),
what would you do with it?
A: The church just bought
53 acres three miles south of
town. We plan to move out
there. I'd put it on our church
debt.
Q: Is there a television show
you try not to miss?
A: The ones I have always
liked cycle off. "Everybody
Loves Raymond" was our
favorite show. Before that I
really liked "Frazier."
Q: Share something that
makes you proud of your wife.
\ A: I married Cindy Sheldon
13 years ago. She's a very posi-
tive, dedicated Christian
person. Her heart is pure. I
had dated a lot of people by
the time I was 50. She was
interested in what we could do
together in ministry. She's my
biggest helper and I try to be
her biggest helper.
Q: What do you like to do for
fun?
A: I work at my wife's minis-
try. She runs Steppin' Stone
Farm. We live with 27 teenage
girls on 85 acres. My hobby is
to work on the grounds there. I
like to plant bushes and flow-
ers all over the property.
Q: What is your favorite
place to eat?
A: We eat at Grandpa John-
son's Barbecue here in town. I
like Carrabba's in Lakeland.
Then Landry's Seafood House
over on the Courtney Camp-
bell Parkway.
SQ: Apart from the Bible,
what book has influenced you


the most recently?
A: "Good to Great," by Jim
Collins. That is a great book. I
had all of our staff read it.
Q: What is the best Christ-
mas present you ever gave?
A: Every year, my wife and I
give each other a trip. We've
had some great trips, but the
nicest was Alaska. We did the
cruise and the land tour.
Q: What is your favorite
verse from the Bible?
A: "If you confess with your
mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and
believe in your heart that God
raised him from the dead, you
will be saved. For it is with
your heart that you believe
and are justified, and it is with
your mouth that you confess
and are saved." Romans 10: 9-

Bruce and Margaret
Rodwell, who again
this year head up the
Salvation Army's
efforts in Plant City,
ring up some holiday
spirit at the Wal-
Mart Supercenter in
Plant City. Last year's
Salvation Army drive
raised $4,147.17 in
Plant City. Due to the
drain on the Salva-
tion Army's funds
during Hurricane
Katrina, they hope to
raise even more this
year, the Rodwells
said.

SCHOOLS
Continued From Page 1


begin at 7 p.m. at Plant City
High School, 1 Raider Place.
Plant City High is just over
100 percent of capacity with
2,700 students, said Principal
David Steele, who is expecting
at least 100 people at the
event.
In terms of overcrowding,
"We are pretty good right
now," Steele said. "But there's
no doubt within the next few
years we will need another
high school in the area."
Historically, Hillsborough
has put high schools on
double sessions when enroll-
ment surpasses 3,000 stu-
dents, as was the case most
recently with Bloomingdale,
Gaither and Sickles high
schools. There was a time
when Brandon High School,
already on double sessions,
was considering triple ses-
sions, as its enrollment topped
4,500 students. That move was
preempted when voters
approved a school
construction bond referen-
dum.
During Superintendent Earl
Lennard's nine-year tenure,
which ended in June, the
Hillsborough County School
District grew by about 50,000
students and 65 schools,
which doesn't include schools
under construction. Spoto
and Lennard high schools are
scheduled to open next year in
Riverview and Ruskin, respec-
tively. At a time when it was
growing from the nation's
13th-largest school district to
the ninth-largest, lowering
class sizes to boot, Hills-

schools.


borough was growing itself
into today's $350 million defi-
cit in capital outlay funding,
even after spending more
than $1 billion on school
construction and renovation
over the past decade.
Durant High School antici-
pates topping 3,000 students
by the fall.
"Ten years ago we never
could have contemplated this
school being the largest school
in the county," Bowden said at
the Nov. 9 meeting at her
school.
"Our district is concerned
about our numbers," said Bar-
bara Franques, director 'of
schools in eastern Hills-
borough County. "If they
weren't, you wouldn't be
having this meeting today.
Understand that we're here to
take suggestions and talk
about some possibilities for
helping this situation."
It's a situation other schools
will be facing as well.
The district refers to schools
with growth concerns over the


next five years as "sch
interest." In the great
don and Plant City ai
list includes Alafia,
Buckhorn, Mintz, J
Pinecrest and Walde
elementary schools ai
rennan and Tomlin
schools. "Nelson Elem(
Franques said, "is soo
my more critically
crowded elementary
and Randall my
school."
Steve Ayers, the d
director of pupil adm
tive services, said
would have to be relief
way or another within
two years.
One way would be
sign kids, but nearb
City and Newsome
schools have growth ci
of their own, albeit
immediately pressing:
district could reassign
assignment kids back
neighborhood school
school officials note
such relief probably w


h be that significant.
as Bowden noted that many of
the approximately 270 kids on
ses- special assignment now were
granted that request when
sSeS their siblings were allowed to
stay at Durant instead of
case moving to Newsome when it
opened in 2003, and therefore
ing-_ their numbers will dwindle
I, through attrition. Besides,
igh Ayers said, it wouldn't be fair
highly to tell a kid well on his way
through high school that he
has to go home, so to speak.
Another option would be to
hools of bring back portables, which
er Bran- Ayers said is a costly venture
rea, the and by no means a long-term
Bevis, solution, even .though for
ackson, years the district had put to
n Lake use about 1,800 of the make-
nd Mul- shift classrooms. That was
middle before the Legislature, during
entary," the final term of Gov. Lawton
)n to be Chiles, considered portables
over- somewhat second-class and
school unsafe and essentially banned
middle them.
Another option would be to
district's build a new school, which
ainistra- would be the ultimate solu-
Durant tion, except for the fact that it
ved one takes land, which hasn't been
the next acquired, and money, which
hasn't been allocated.
to reas- Durant is not land-locked,

e high classroom wing is possible,

g. The said.
special And so Durant is at a cross-
to their roads. A teacher at the meet-
ls, but ingtalked about the reputation
ed that Durant has for caring for its
couldn't kids, a child-centered


approach that was built into
the school's culture by its
founding Principal Ron Frost.
Those around the table con-
curred, including Scott
Varnum, who said he never
dreamed of sending his kids to
Newsome High School, even
though it was named for his
father-in-law.
Bowden said she doesn't
want to see one kid go, but
something will have to give as
the school approaches 4,000
students. With growth, safety
concerns become paramount
and it becomes more difficult
to feed everybody and to drive
to and from the school in grid-
lock traffic. Bowden wondered
aloud if parents would prefer.
boundary changes to double
sessions.
The answer, said some of
the respondents, depends on
whose kids you plan to move.

Prevent Injury From
Heavy Backpacks
An overloaded pack can sometimes
create strain on a child's shoulders
and arms and possibly cause injury
to nerves. Choose a well-fitting
backpack with two padded shoulder
straps; use both to distribute the
weight more evenly. A good pack
should have a waist strap to help
take the weight off the shoulders
and keep the pack evenly in the
middle of the back. Heaviest items
should be packed closest to the
back. Rolling packs are also an
option. If your child complains of
pain, tingling or numbness, see your
doctor and bring the pack along.

Bowden, Brown Join


Forces To Lift East All-Stars


ROBERT CONEI/Saff file photo
Durant senior Chip Bowden fires off a pass against the Plant City Raiders.
Bowden threw several passes to rival Raiders QB Jason Brown, who played wide
receiver, in the Hillsborough County senior all-star game. Bowden led the East
squad to a 16-13 victory over the West all-stars.


SENIORS DEFEAT
STAR-STUDDED WEST SQUAD
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
With players just from Jefferson
and Hillsborough stocking their
roster, the Hillsborough County West
all-stars could pretty much have
enough talent to knock off any other
county's full squad.
Toss in players from Robinson and
Plant and the team fielded Saturday
night at Raymond James Stadium was
truly star-studded and certainly
expected to be better than the East
county stars.
But thanks in large part to Durant
senior Chip Bowden, the East pulled
off a victory, beating the West, 16-13.
"A lot of people didn't think we had
a chance," Bowden said. "We really
wanted to win, and we practiced hard
all week."
Saturday night's contest featured
the top seniors from both sides of the
county.
The* West led 13-3 in the fourth
quarter, and forced a fumble by sack-
ing Bowden to seemingly ice the
game. However, the East got the ball
right back on a fumble, and after
Bowden was twice hit late for some
big penalty yardage, he scored on a
tough 21-yard run.
Then Plant City High's Jason Brown
ran a punt back for 32 yards all the
way to the 17-yard line, and with a
minute to go Bowden threw a 16-yard
touchdown to Andre Patrick of Tampa
Bay Tech. The East won 16-13.
Brown, who spent nearly a full four
years as the Raiders quarterback, was


"A lot ofpeople

didn't think we had
a chance. We really

wanted to win, and

we practiced hard

all week."
CHIP BOWDEN
Quarterback, East all-stars

put at receiver by the East coaches and
caught several passes from his high-
school rival Bowden.
"He's not as tall as most receivers,
but he's definitely faster than most,"
said Bowden.
Also representing the Raiders was
offensive lineman Cody Silcox.
Other Durant seniors who played in
the all-star game were Kyle Swallows,
Josh Fussell and Dennis Hicks.
Bowden said he has two college visits
scheduled he is a three-sport athlete
(baseball, wrestling) but is looking at a
football scholarship at the University
of New Mexico and West Point.
Brown, also point guard for the
Raider basketball team and a track
standout, has yet to verbally commit
with any school.
Bob Henriquez, the head coach of
Tampa Catholic, led the East team and
was assisted by most of his TC staff
along with Brandon head coach Jim
Wilt.
"We took it seriously and we really
wanted to prove ourselves," Bowden
said.


Cougars Host Plant City In Boys Hoops SHARP CUTS


KEY DISTRICT GAME
FOR BOTH TEAMS
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
Under" ordinary circum-
stances, Plant City would be
looking forward to this Fri-
day's boys basketball game
with Durant.
Thanks to what happened
in the Raiders' last outing,
they really, really can't wait to
play the Cougars.
This Friday at Durant will
mark the first action for the
Raiders in a week and the
first since a very rough loss to
East Bay.
Plant City led 43-36 going
into the fourth quarter, but
lost the game, 46-43. That's
right: no points in the fourth
quarter.


"I didn't know we hadn't
scored until afterwards. You
just look up and knew that
there is a dry spell going on,"
said Raiders head coach Gary
Meyer, who said that none-
theless the Raiders hit the
practice floor with enthusiasm
this week and will be ready for
the Durant game.
Friday's contest will count
in the Class 6A-District 8
standings, the return meeting
in Plant City on Jan. 24 will go
to the awarding of the Ron
Frost trophy.
For five years, the Durant-
Plant City winner has laid
claim to the trophy, an unoffi-
cial city championship.
And while normally getting
district wins is of ultimate
importance, the way the boys
basketball season is shaping
up this year may create a dif-
ferent vibe. Now, District 8 is


looking like Sarasota River-
view and everyone else.
In fact, one could argue that
finishing in sixth place might
be better than in fourth or
fifth, since the winner of the 4
vs. 5 game in the tournament
will have to beat Sarasota Riv-
erview (ranked fourth in the
state) to reach the district
final.
In other words, if a team,
can't finish in the top three of
the district, it would almost be
better to drop all the way
down to one of the bottom
two spots.
Next week, the Raiders take
on a pair of Polk County teams
and one from Miami in the
T-Mac Rotary Shootout in
Auburndale.
Plant City will play Winter
Haven, Haines City and then
wrap up with Carol City next
Friday.

SoccerSquads


Clinch Top Seeds


Must be nice still having a
month to play in the regular
season, and yet already have
a district top seed wrapped
up, huh?
Well, that happens to
describe the situation for
BOTH the Plant City boys
and Durant girls soccer
teams, which each took care
of the feat by winning games
last Friday.
Even though there is still
plenty of season left, both
squads have secured the best
overall district mark through
a limited, six-game district
schedule. The Raider boys
did it against Durant,
winning 2-1 Friday, while it
was the Cougar girls beating
Plant City 6-2.
Obviously, the boys game
was a much closer call. It's
hard to get much closer than
what happened at Durant:
The Cougars hit the crossbar
with only a minute left to
play. After an early Cougar
goal, Plant City's Micheal
Fekete tied the score and
then, late in the half, Ben
Liles put home a loose ball
off a Jonathin Dupree free


kick.
Outside of ringing the iron
late, Durant also had two
one-on-one breaks with
Raider goalie K.C. Keller,
along with a shot that the
Plant City defense cleared ofi
the goal line.
Plant City (9-2) was
without its second-leading
scorer, Colin Gill (seven
goals, seven assists). Gill was
in Raleigh, N.C., for a club
soccer tournament.
The Raiders have only
advanced past the first
round of the playoffs once,

and only have reached the
postseason three times. The
chances of returning seem
good. Both they and the
Durant girls have the luxury
of hosting the district
tournament in late January.
Durant's girls are 6-0-4
going into the winter
holidays, but is done with its
6A-8 schedule having gone
4-0-2 in district play. East
Bay has the same district
mark and the teams tied one
another, but Durant has the
tiebreaker edge due to a
better result against third-
place Sarasota Riverview.
The Rivera sisters (Gabi
with nine goals, Dani with
five) lead the way in scoring
for Durant along with
Brooke Van Aman. While the
Cougars are undefeated
now, it will be tough to carry
that status into the district
tournament, but that might
be a good thing.
At next week's Sarasota
Holiday Tournament,
Durant will face some stiff
competition starting with a
couple of highly-rated local
squads, Bloomingdale and
undefeated Sickles. Durant
is also scheduled to face Eau
Gallie and Fort Myers.

Swim stars
Plenty of Raider swim-


mers were honored with the
announcement of the
Western Conference all-star
teams last week.
Stephanie Barker earned
first-team mention in the
200 individual medley and
Mallory Ventsam was the
first-team breast-stroke
swimmer.
Durant's Kaylee Doback,
like Barker a state-meet
qualifier, was a first-team
diving representative.
Barker, Ventsam, Anna
Palermo and Marah Dolan
were on two second-team
squads: the 200 medley and
200 freestyle relay.

day's Raider Invitational
wrestling tournament, were
a bit put off that shark was
one of the menu items in the
hospitality room.
Where else could the crew
of Raider wrestling parents
go after already having
featured in the past.such
"exotic" dishes as buffalo, ox
and the famous ostrich
sausage?
Riverview defended its
team title with the victory,
so at least there was no need
for them to eat crow.


Deadline is Thursday the week before the item is to appear in the paper. This includes club news, calendar items, church-related
items, business notes, entertainment and school notes.
