TO PERFORM


Staff Report
The Florida Opry promises a
high-energy show Jan. 14 when
fiddler Stephanie Ann takes the
stage in Plant City.
Merle Henry, founder and
president of the opry, said he was
happy to book Stephanie Ann for
the show.
"She is definitely high energy,"
Henry said. "We are very glad to
have her here."
Also performing at the event


Rimmer and The Kings Messen-
ger Quartet.
Ann, who was born in, Palm
River and attended Brandon High
School, is a classically trained vio-
linist.
She started performing at the
Grand Old Opry in Nashville in
1994 with country legend "Whis-
pering" Bill Anderson, before
going solo in 1996. Since then,
she has made three CDs and is
working on her fourth. Ann, who
is among the finalists for Ameri-
can Entertainment Magazine's
Female Performer of the Year
award, also plays the rare strad-a-


one of only six performers in the
world using the instrument.
"There's no one else like her in
the market," said Ron Simon, her
husband and manager. "Think
Shania Twain with a fiddle meets
Yanni. Her performances are very
high energy and emotional."
The show starts at 7 p.m. at the
1914 Plant City High School Com-
munity Center, 605 N. Collins St.

Federation. were shocked
when a vote by the
International Olympic Com-
mittee reduced softball and
baseball to nonparticipating
sports in the 2112 Olympic
Games scheduled for London.
Don Porter, ISF president,
said the vote was politically
motivated and vowed to
regain the participation of
softball in the London Olym-
pics.
Softball will play a promi-
nent role in the 2008 Olympics
scheduled in' Beijing, Porter
said. i .

August

OPINION




Revealing My Conflicts Of Interests


since journalists often obsess about conflicts of
interests by public officials, I think it is only fair
that journalists reveal their own conflicts of inter-
ests financial, political and philosophical. Read-
ers have a right to know where people who presume to
make public judgments are coming from.


Being a newspaperman, I've
never been bothered by
financial conflicts of interest.
I've been a wage serf all my life,
and except for one jackpot in
Las Vegas, all my income has
been from salary and the sale
of my columns. That is still the
case, though in lieu of salary, I
now get a pension and a Social
Security check. Yes, despite the
dated picture that might run
with this column, I've joined
the geezer brigade. As someone
once said, getting old is not for
sissies. The only advantage I
can see is that it gives you a
perspective that younger
people haven't had the time to
acquire.
The only smart thing I ever"
did in the financial arena was
get out of debt and stay out.
The Buddhists are right it's
much better to limit your
desires than to earn the income
to satisfy them. I own two
properties and pay a mortgage
on a third, which is for sale.
Other than that mortgage, I
don't owe a thin dime to a
living soul. My individual
retirement account that I rolled
over is managed by a financial
consultant for a fee that


CHARLEY
REESE
Columnist


exceeds any return it has
earned.
I belong to only two organiz-
ations the National Rifle
Association and the Sons of
Confederate Veterans. I'm
registered as a Democrat. John
F. Kennedy caused me to
switch to the Republican Parry
(despite the sentimental
revisionism, JFK was a lousy
president), and the first George
Bush caused me to switch back
to the Democrats. I disagree
,witb the overwhelming major-
ity-of Democrats, but at least
they aren't hypocrites like the


Republicans, who make
conservative speeches but
implement liberal policies.
My political philosophy is
the same as George Washing-
ton's and Jefferson Davis'. I
believe the Constitution is not
a living document but a
contract between the states
and their agent, the federal
government. I believe it should
be interpreted literally and in
the context of the time in
which it was written and
ratified. Needless to say,
neither political party shares
that belief. The Constitution is
violated every day.
You can bet your life that in
1789, when people were still
being burned at the stake,
scalped and mutilated, the
cruel-and-inhuman-punish-
ment prohibition did not mean
denying a prisoner access to a
telephone and a law library. I
don't believe in pre-emptive
wars, imperialism or meddling
in the internal affairs of
another country in any way
whatsoever. Nor do I believe in
government secrecy which is
a characteristic of authoritarian
regimes, not of a free republic.
It's plain that citizens cannot
hold their government
accountable if they don't know
what it is doing.
George Washington's
Farewell Address summarizes
my political beliefs. Every
* American shouLdiread it, as .'
well as the Federalist Papers,
but, obviously, few do.


As for economics, I no longer
believe in pure capitalism as I
once did. Capitalism is good at
production, but lousy at
distribution. Capitalism based
on ownership in which most
people own their homes, their
farms and their businesses -
will work. Finance capitalism,
which is what we practice, just
allows financial pirates to
exploit the world for their own
gain. It has turned most of our
population into irrational
consumers and debt slaves.
As for morality, we have lost
it. You can be a Christian
society, a Muslim society or a
Buddhist society, but you can't
be a secular society without
decadence and corruption.
Materialism is not a formula for
happiness. Human life is short.
We are born with nothing, and
we die with nothing. Chasing
possessions is a poor way to
spend the short time in
between.
My purpose as a columnist is
to provoke people into thinking
about the important things in
life. Unless we want to join the
zombies who worry about Brad
Pitt's latest romance, we'd all
better get our minds in gear.
Certain morons in Washington
are seriously endangering both
our liberty and our prosperity.
Both are easier to lose than to
regain.

Keeping All 12 Days Of Christmas


I hope that we all have been remembering to keep
Christmas over this past week. "What?" you say.
"Wasn't Christmas over on the 25th? We opened our
presents and moved on. The rest of the week was all
about gathering party supplies for New Years Eve."
Some of you probably still have a headache.


Political correctness may be
one thing, but today's column
amounts to a great opportunity
to promote what I like to call
C.C., or "Christmas Correct-
ness." I'm wondering how
many of us who made such a
point of bellowing loud "Merry
Christmases" have taken the
trouble to keep the ball rolling
now the 25th is past and the
spotlight has dimmed? Because
that's when Christmas really
got under way.
To tell the truth, I've been a
tad embarrassed by some of
the "In your face" quality
characterizing much of this
season's celebrations.
"Watch me stick that
blankity-blank atheist with a
full-on Merry Christmas."
"The waiter 'Happy
Holidayed' me, so I left a 'Jesus
is the reason for the season'
card instead of his tip."
"Yo, agnostic. Eat my
Christmas cheer!"
People sharing their faith in
such strident and confronta-
tional tones have effectively
placed a further barrier bet-


DEREK'
MAUL
Columnist

ween the Prince of Peace and
those his sublime message of
reconciliation is intended to
reach.
The time following Dec. 25
provides a great opportunity to
review exactly why that
amazing baby was born, and
the "Twelve days of Christmas"
are designed to do exactly that.
Big clue if Christmas is
already over in your house then
chances are you're a little fuzzy
as to what it was really about in
the first place.


Wednesday and Thursday
this week complete the-
traditional "Twelve Days." If
you effectively shut down the
celebration of Christmas as
soon as the last gift was
unwrapped, then you have
missed much of what makes
this time of the year so
compelling.
From God's point of view,
the Christmas gifts keep right
on coming. And here's the
kicker, the gifts are completely
useless unless we take the
trouble to unwrap them, think
about them and utilize them in
our day-to-day lives.
In order, the 12 days are
intended to remind us of: Jesus;
God's promises; faith, hope
and charity; the four gospels;
the Torah; Creation; the gifts of
the Spirit; the eight beatitudes;
the fruit of God's Spirit; the 10
commandments; the faithful
disciples; and the 12 essential
points comprising the Apostles
Creed of A.D. 160.
Christmas Day has become
such a focal point of frenzied
build-up that too many of us
simply collapse, exhausted,
around noon on the 25th and
react by throwing out the tree
and boxing our decorations as
soon as humanly possible.
Talk about throwing the
baby out with the bathwater.
Pun intended. If we throw the
baby out right along with the
tree then we conveniently


avoid the possibility of that
infant growing up and actually
making a difference in our
lives.
The week and a half follow-
ing Christmas Day provides the
perfect opportunity to build
our New Year on the firm
foundation of a well-consid-
ered faith.
If you are feeling a little
empty this week, if the post-
holiday blues are beginning to
seep into your bones and
hollow out the insides of your
soul, then I recommend 12
days of reflection and inten-
tion, beginning today.
Take a look around the
house. Maybe there's an errant
ornament or two that escaped
the dark confines of the attic,
maybe a nutcracker, a Santa, a
wise man, or a shepherd. Place
the decoration on your desk, or
on the kitchen counter a
tangible reminder of Christmas
prominently displayed and
use it as a prompt to think
about what it all means.
Officially, the Feast of
Epiphany is celebrated Jan. 6.
For the rest of us, however, our
revelation may have to wait
another week and a half.

to stimulate development of new residential
property and add revenue to existing
commercial properties, officials said.

November
*Hannah Hodge, a senior at Durant High
School, beat out 90 other contestants to win
the 2006 Calendar Cover Girl contest. The
event packed the school's auditorium.
Veterans Day saw many events around
town geared to honor, remember and salute
veterans of the armed services, including a
special presentation and open house at the
Plant City Photo Archives Center, and a
breakfast and patriotic show at Knights Ele-
mentary School.
+ City Manager David Sollenberger had
open heart surgery to remove damaged tis-
sue surrounding his heart, and two bypass
procedures to strengthen blood flow. Sol-
lenberger will not return to his duties until
doctors release him sometime in early 2006,
he said.

December
*The annual Christmas parade and other
seasonal festivities crowded the calendar of
events throughout December. Christmas
plays, church and school activities and
charitable collections added to the busy
season. A nativity scene erected at the city's
McCall Park, without a permit, was disman-
tled by the city. Following discussions with
Mayor John Dicks and other city commis-
sioners, the group seeking to display the
nativity scene received a permit and the
scene was reassembled.
Jerry L. Thomas was named the new
executive director of the Plant City Photo
Archives, replacing retired director Gil Gott,
who will continue to serve as the chairman
of the archives' advisory council. Thomas
will be the archives' first full-time director.

TRAUMATIC GRIEF

In the normal grieving process, although
thee is great sadness, person still retains
an emotional attachment to others that
imbues life with meaningand purpose.
Traumatic grief however, is characterized
by detachment fiom the world, as well
as feelings of futility. There is a yearning
and searching for the departed person, a
denial that he or she is gone, and an in-
ability to imagine life alone. Those most
at risk are those who live alone and lack
social support, as well as those who are
extraordinarily attached to one person
and feel as though they have lost a soul
mate Fortunately, those who suffer
from traumatic grief can be helped if
their trauma is recognized and treated
quiddy.

When you've lost a loved one, it is im-
pornant to have at least one person with
whom you can discuss your feelings.
Joining a bereavement group is a good
idea. Formoreinformation about be-
reavement groups or funeral ser-
vices, call HAUGHT FUNERAL
HOME at 813-717-9300. We
have been helping families of all
faiths at one of the most difficult
times of their lives. Our concern
for you and your family does not
end when the funeral service does.
Haught Funeral Home is located
at 708 Dr. Martin Luther King
Blvd. W

School resource deputy
dies in accident
A middle school resource
deputy was killed as the result
of injuries received in a single-
vehicle crash north of Plant
City Christmas Eve morning,
officials from the Hillsborough
County Sheriff's Office said.
Deputy Robert "Chris" Car-
rega, 48, the school resource
deputy at Turkey Creek
Middle School, was traveling
southbound on, Pless Road,
north of Knights Griffin Road,
about 1:30 a.m., in his personal
vehicle, said Debbie Carter, a
spokeswoman for the sheriff's
office.
The vehicle's right side tires
went off the road's west side
shoulder and Carrega over-
corrected, Carter said. The
vehicle, a 2004 Ford F-150,
traveled across both lanes and
struck a utility pole on the east
shoulder of the road with the
driver's side door. Carter said
Carrega died at the scene.
Carrega was hired by the
county as a detention officer
in June 1981 and worked in
that position until 1988. He
was then employed as a patrol
deputy until 1999 and served
as a truant deputy for two
years. Carrega was the school
resource deputy at Turkey
Creek Middle School since
2001.

School Chief Elia Addresses Growth, Clubs


PLANT CITY HIGH

TOWN HALL MEETING
By LINDA CHION KENNEY
Ichion@mediageneral.com
Both pressing and
philosophical issues were
hashed over recently at a town
hall meeting hosted by the
freshman superintendent of
Hillsborough County schools.
In her first term of office,
Superintendent MaryEllen
Elia has been meeting in the
community to discuss issues
related to public schooling in
the nation's ninth-largest
school district.
At the latest meeting Dec. 15
at Plant City High School, resi-
dents primarily from eastern
Hillsborough County stepped
up to the microphone to-
discuss such issues as crowded
schools, the Gay-Straight Alli-
ance clubs on high school
campuses, extracurricular
clubs and even the separation
of church and state as it
applies to the perceived lack
of "traditional" Christmas
songs at school holiday
events.
In leading off the night's
agenda, Elia, as she did at pre-
vious town hall meetings, out-
lined her .administration's
focus in a county that contin-
ues to grow by about 6,000
students a year. The school
board appointed Elia, the dis-
trict's first female superinten-
dent, following the June
retirement of Earl Lennard.
The district's goals are to


focus on student achievement,
parental and community
involvement and tolerance for
diversity, Elia said.
The district's fourth goal is
to meet the demands of
growth.
"The school district has
built 60 new schools in 10
years," Elia said. "The school
district has renovated 70
schools in 10 years and built
over 119 additions to existing
schools to add student sta-
tions, and we're in the process
of finishing about 40 of those-
right now."
Still, she said, the district is
facing a capital outlay short-
age of about $400 million to'
meet documented
construction needs-for growth
and class-size reduction man-
dates.
Feeling the pinch in
particular are some eastern
county schools, including
Nelson Elementary School,
which opened three years ago
on Durant Road.'
"I believe we opened with
650 students and now we're
like 912, and it's a moving
target," said Nelson Principal
Judy Bowen, who was in the
town hall audience.
More immediately pressing
is what to do at Durant High
School, where about 2,800 stu-
dents attend classes. School
officials say that number could
top 3,000 in the coming school
year. Plant City High itself is
getting crowded, and that has
led school officials to look fer-
vently for a site for a new high
school between Plant City


and Durant.
Meanwhile, a task force
with representation from
schools, parents, builders,
community groups,
governmental bodies and
chambers of commerce' has
issued a report with five sug-
gestions for meeting the class-
room crunch.
One of the more
controversial recommenda-
tions involves the impact fee
charged to new construction
and homes in Hillsborough-
County.
Elia noted that nearby
counties impose an impact fee
as low as $4,000 and as high as
more than $8,000, but that in
Hillsborough the fee is much
less, at $197.
"We need to request that
the county commissioners
increase our impact fee," she
said, rioting that a joint meet-
ing between the school board
and county commission will
be held in January.
Other recommendations
from the task force include
levying a half-cent sales tax for
school construction and
asking the Legislature to adopt
document stamps for school
construction and to fully fund
the class-size reduction man-
dates. A fifth recommendation
involves school officials con-
sidering more efficient uses of
classroom. buildings. That
could include such things as
boundary changes and year-
round scheduling.
Barbara Hammock of Plant
City expressed her concerns
with double sessions. As a

grandmother, she said, she is
involved in her third decade
with Plant City High School
and she remembers well when
Brandon High School was
almost on triple sessions.
Elia stressed, however, that
burgeoning student enroll-
ment is a major concern and
that redistricting "as a normal
course of events" must be
expected in a high-growth dis-
trict.
Indeed, much of the discus-
sion Thursday night centered
on the establishment of Gay-
Straight Alliance clubs on high
school campuses. There is a
push in some camps, and
indeed a petition, to get rid of
these clubs, but many speak-
ers stood inr protest of that
action, including' student
members from the club at
Brandon High School.
"This is not a sex club and
nobody is able to 'hook up'
(through the club)," said pres-
ident Mike Freincle, who
invited anybody to drop in on
a club meeting and see how
the group works to advance
tolerance. "This is a safe haven
for kids who don't fit in."
Allan Trovillion, whose chil-
dren attend Newsome High
and Randall middle schools,
responded to the students.
"We're going to be positive,"
he said. "We're not going to
name-call or stereotype. With
reasoning, we can come up
with a policy that's good for
all. Petitions are designed to
get attention and we got
attention to an issue that
needs to be addressed."


The petition in question,
with hundreds of signatures,
came from a group calling
itself Citizens for Academic
Excellence.
Elia said a task force with
wide representation will look
into all extracurricular clubs
and activities, including the
popular hockey clubs that
sport school names but oper-
ate independently with paren-
tal and community support.
Recommendations from that
task force are expected "soon
after the beginning of the
school year," Elia said.
The superintendent stressed
.that the purpose of the task
force "is not to ban anything,"
but "to look at ways we can
define what is appropriate."

City Grill Restaurant Fires Up On Alexander


NEW EATERY SERVES
LUNCH, DINNER
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
The owners of the new City
Grill Restaurant are working to
bring something different to
the dining experience in Plant
City.
While there will have to be
strawberries on the menu, in
and out of season, Bill Mueller
and Don Hinton have pack-
aged some dishes that would
normally call for an out of
town trip by prospective din-
ers.
The eatery at 1701 S. Alex-
ander St. has been open for
dinner since mid-November,
but is now open for business
for lunch and dinner.
Hinton, a third generation
strawberry farmer now work-
ing in sales with Florida Elite
Produce, is excited about the
opening of the new restaurant,
located where Cherry's once
operated in the Village at Wal-
den Lake shopping center.
"We refer to the fare as
American bistro," Hinton said.
"Our selection of appetizers
and entrees are unique to the
Plant City area. But we
retained the sports grill items
and entertainment. And .we
are putting a large part of our
attention into -.quality and
service."


Hinton and Mueller and
other minor partners have
sunk a lot of money into the
complete refurbishment of
the restaurant, Hinton said.
"We literally gutted the
place," Mueller said. "We
rebuilt the kitchen and bath-
rooms. We removed the old
bar, built a new bar on the
west side of the restaurant and
separated it from the main
dining areas."
The owners also purchased
new coolers for the expanded
kitchen, painted the walls and
ceilings, added seasonal deco-
rations, finished the floor with
hardwood, furnished the din-
ing areas with granite-topped
tables and added two big-
screen and a large plasma
television above the bar.
Mueller, who is the
manager, moved to Plant City
almost four years ago from
Baltimore. He has been in the
business of rebuilding historic
homes. One of his most recent
projects was a home on Tever
Street, near Wheeler Street.
"Rebuilding the restaurant
was similar to rebuilding a
home. I was able to use my
experience and put it to good
use," Mueller said.
Another influence that is
more subtle, but equally as
important, is the fact that
Mueller's father, William
Mueller Sr., was an senior
chef in several exclusive res-
taurants in the Washington,


D.C., area.
"Dad was a chef at the Will-
ard Hotel in D.C., near the
White House, before I was
born," Mueller said. "All of the
leaders in Congress dined
there. He also worked at the
Occidental Hotel, and was the
executive chef for the National
Geographic corporate office
dining room in D.C."
His father died at the age of
93, in Plant City, where his son
brought him to live out his
life. In November 1963, the
younger Mueller remembers
standing on the second-floor
balcony of the Occidental
with his father, watching the
funeral procession for John F.
Kennedy move along Penn-
sylvania Avenue.
"He's probably looking
down on me right now,
thinking I'm crazy for follow-
ing him in the restaurant
business," Mueller said. "It is
not the easiest profession to
follow."
The City Grill luncheon
menu contains such appetiz-
ers as Sedona shrimp, butter
breaded mushrooms, Cadillac,
nachos and chicken tenders.
Lunch entrees include a vari-
ert of sandwiches and traps,
including a crab cake sand-
wich, reuben and phillycheese
steak, and assorted pasta.
soups and salads.
Entrees served at dinner
include filets of fresh fish,
grilled scallops and coconut

BRIGHT SIDE
Continued From Page 1

Crumbly said. "But I'm still
reaching for that dream. I'm
not there yet."
Strangely enough, Crumbly
insists that his dream began
as an 11-year-old when he
jammed a shard of glass
through the palm of his right
hand. He was playing with
friends when he fell on a
broken soft-drink bottle that
pierced his hand, stabbing
him like a spike through flesh,
tendons and bone.
"I felt no pain," Crumbly
said. "But I was fascinated to
see three inches of glass on
both sides of my hand. As I
pulled it out blood flew
everywhere."
Doctors sewed the tendons
in his hand back together. But
they warned him that he
might lose the use of the
fingers on that hand, and
might not even be.able to
open his fist when the healing
was done.
From that strange begin-
ning, with his young athletic
fantasies left in doubt,
Crumbly was encouraged by
the doctor who treated him to
take up writing or art in order
to strengthen his hand.
"As a young boy, I played
baseball, football, tennis, ran
track and thought I could be a
star," he said. "But that injury
brought me back down to
earth. I immediately followed
that doctor's advice and since
I didn't like writing, I started
to draw."
He has been drawing ever
since.
Crumbly was born and
raised in Erie, Pa., by James
and Olive Crumbly. His father
was a police officer who never
went to college. His mother
was a graduate of Case
Western Reserve University
and Mercyhurst College.
"They were married for 49
years," Crumbly said of his
parents. "He was her hero his
entire life. They were perfectly
matched in spite of their
educational differences."
In 1998, his father died of
prostate cancer. He was 68
and retired from the police
department three weeks
earlier. His mother, now 74,
lives in Manneville, Ohio,
with her daughter.
"My father, called J.W. by
friends and family, taught me
about life and how to live it,"
Crumbly said. "He was a great
father, husband and a
courageous man."
"My dad set the standard
for me," Crumbly said. "He
did things the way they are
supposed to be done."
One of five children, Greg
attended high school at Erie
Technical Memorial. He
played wide receiver on a
football team that went
unbeaten and un-scored
upon in 1976.
"We were a powerhouse
team," he said.
Crumbly was the top
student in his class, in a
school that swelled with 3,800


students. He took college
preparatory classes and
ignored athletic scholarships
from all over the country to
take an academic scholarship
to Bucknell University in
Lewisburg, Pa. The schol-
arship paid two-thirds of his
tuition, room and board. He
played semi-professional
football to make up the
difference. He graduated in
1980 with two degrees in
hand, one in art history and
the other in psychology.
"I thought I would be a
teacher," he said. "But it
didn't work out that way. God
showed me a sense of humor
and other plans for my
future."
After a very brief stint in the
Canadian Football League,
Crumbly, right out of the
blue, went to talk with a
military recruiter and was
soon signed up for a three-
year hitch in the Army.
"I went to Fort Benning in
Columbus, Ga., to train as a
private with an infantry unit,"
he said.
Following basic training,
Crumbly attended advanced
individual training, still at
Fort Benning. It was then that
he realized he couldn't
transfer to an aviation unit, as
his recruiter had promised. So
he signed up for U.S. Army
Ranger School to escape a
certain future as a "ground-
pounder."
"From there I went to
Warrant Officer School at Fort
Rucker, Ala.," he said. "To get
there they said the directions
were to go to hell and turn left
near Dothan, Ala.," he said.
"The directions weren't far
from being right on the
money."
During his 10 years in the
4.Armyin'CrumblIFlevw combat
helicopters, and fought in
Nicaragua, Panama and
Grenada.
He retired from the military
in 1991, but his studio in
Springhead is filled with war
trophies, souvenirs, items
that he bought while serving
overseas and memorabilia.
It's an eclectic mix including
an African rain stick; military
and western saddles; bugles;
and several medals, including
a Silver Star that was given to
him acknowledging valor
under fire.
He also has his diploma
from Bucknell, his honorable
discharge, swords carried by
the military in several differ-
ent nations, a 1943 Army
bayonet, a Nazi officer's
dagger and several guns and
rifles used by the military and
the police.
"Everything about me is in
this studio," Crumbly said.
"Including those pictures of
my mother and father."
Developing his skills as an
artist began shortly after
Crumbly stepped out of the
Army in 1991, walked across
the hall in a government
building in Pittsburgh and
joined the Pittsburgh Police
Department.
During his training at the
police academy he was asked
to repeat the detailed descrip-

Fastest Growing Areas in Florida


tion of a suspect given by one
of the class instructors. He .
simply said, "Here he is," and
handed the instructor a
pencil drawing that he made
from the verbal description.
The rendering was close
enough to the actual picture
of the suspect for the depart-
ment to make Crumbly its
forensic artist.
From that time until he
retired from the department
in 2001 he was loaned out to
the FBI, the Pennsylvania
State Police and other law
enforcement agencies as an
artist specializing in suspect
renderings. He has a scrap-
book filled with newspaper
articles resulting from arrests
and convictions based upon
his artistic skills.
Explaining his departure
from another successful job
Crumbly doesn't hesitate:
"Ships are safe in a port. But
that is not what ships are for. I
have to sail through life like a
ship on the high seas. I don't
want to remain in port. I want


to ride the winds. That is what
I was meant to do."
In 2001, Crumbly moved to
Springhead.
Since that time he has
developed his abilities as an
artist and refined the skills
and contacts needed to
become a commercial artist.
"On his death bed, my
father reminded me of
something I told him when I
was 12 years old. I told him I
wanted to be able to handle
2.3 grams of graphite better
than any other man in the
world." Graphite is typically
used to create charcoal
drawings.
Crumbly said his goal
hasn't changed. And he is
getting closer every day.
"My mother said you have
to have a goal in life and a
plan to get there, or someone
else might choose it for you,
and you might not like it," he
said.
Crumbly's plan to reach his
goal includes targeting
national personalities,

particularly sports figures,
drawing their images as
realistically as possible.
"I don't do caricatures,"
Crumbly said. "I try to depict
the real likeness of my
subject, in action if possible,
with as much detail and
realism as I can get."
Crumbly has done sports
figures such as Mike Alstott,
Ronde Barber, Arnold Palmer,
Tiger Woods, Warren Sapp,
Carnell "Cadillac" Williams,
Beth Bauer and dozens of
others. Many of the originals
he still has are signed by the
athletes.
"I'm under full sail now,"
Crumbly said. "We'll keep the
sails full and see which way
the wind blows."

Q: Where and when were
you born?
A: Brunswick, Ga., the
Golden Isles, in 1937. When I
was 12 we moved to Jessup.
That's where I spent my teen
years.

Q: How long have you lived
in Plant City?
A: This is going on my
eighth year. I first came to
Florida in 1992 to work in our
state office in Tampa as direc-
tor of evangelism and home
missions. I never wanted to
live in Florida till I got here.
Now I don't ever want to
leave.
Q: What about Plant City
floats your boat?
A: I love the small-town
atmosphere. Plant City is just
a friendly, warm place that-
receives everyone., J'm sorry-
now I had to wait so long to
get here. The community is
warm, friendly, and exciting.
Our church reflects that.


Q: When did you build the
new church?
A: We relocated a little over
two years ago from property
adjoining the Strawberry Fes-
tival. We have 29 acres, 930
members and average about
700 on Sunday morning.
Q: Has anything embarrass-
ing ever happened to you in
church?
A: Watch-night service
when I was a teen. I had some
firecrackers in my pocket -
torpedoes. I inadvertently
slipped my hand in and took
out two or three not even
aware of what I was doing. I
dropped those things. Boom!
boom! The lady testifying
screamed and I burned a
man's leg across the aisle. It
woke everyone up.
Q: What is your favorite
hymn?
A: "How Great Thou Art.,"
I've sung it thousands of times
in mylife..
Q: What do you do for fun?
A. I used to golf, but my
game is really going south. My
very favorite thing to do is to
read. ,
Q:Talk about your television
viewing.
A: Just something to throw
my mind out of gear, for relax-

news, I watch FOX.

what book has influenced you
the most recently?

Alcohol
Dependency Drug
The FDA has approved a new drug,
acamprosate (Ca imptil), for treating
alcohol dependenc'. It has been shown
to be effective in preventing relapse
in alcohol-dependent people who've
already given up drinking. It is thought
to act on certain pathways in the brain
related to alcohol abuse, reducing
the desire to drink. The advantage
.of this nonaddicting drug is that it is
not metabolized by the liver so less
monitoring is required. However, if
you have kidney disease, you should
definitely discuss possible complications
with your doctor.

'Fiesta' At Welcome


Baptist Church


ALMOST 300 SHOW UP
Staff Report
Welcome Baptist Church in
Lithia opened its doors for a
Christmas party with a dis-
tinctively Latin theme Dec.,
15. -
Almost 300 people from
migrant families enjoyed the
"Christmas Fiesta," which was
organized by staff from Pine
Crest Elementary School.
The event featured food
cooked by migrant families,
toys for the children donated
by Joseph Scott Financial,
Roadmaster and Bank of Ame-
rica, a visit from Santa, a
pifiata and a Hispanic band.
"It can be especially hard
for some these children to get


presents, but the companies
were more generous than we
had even hoped," said Flora
Garcia, an.ESOL specialist at
Pinecrest who helped organize
the event.
Ines Colon, Pinecrest's
migrant advocate, said the
distinctive Latijtheme for the
party came from ithe migrant
families.
"This was their idea."
Colon was only too happy to
accommodate.
"We are seeing a lot more
migrant families moving into
the Lithia-Pinecrest area
now," Colon said. "We are
trying to reach out to them
and through events like this
we hope to make them feel
more acclimated and welcome
here."

SHARP CUTS



Looking Back On Top Local Sports Stories Of 2005


Don't look down, if you
want be kept in suspense.
Actually, most of you will
know what's coming, as I
submit the list of what I
thought were the five biggest
local high school sports
stories of 2005. There was
one incident that stood out
as having the most impact to
the programs at either Plant
City or Durant.
But we shall start with No.
5:
5. The run of the Plant City
softball team. This is where,
admittedly, I almost had to
flip a coin. So many of the
Cougar and Raider teams
and/or individuals were
outstanding this year (see
the honorable mention
paragraph). Here I just went
with a team whose story
grabbed my memory best as
having a truly remarkable
run.
Heidi Kouveras' team was
doing fine, but nothing
special, toward the end of
the regular season and then
BOOM, they knock off 18-0
Chamberlain. Some teams
would just choose to hang
that as the highlight of the
year and be happy, but the
Lady Raiders went on to beat
Bloomingdale (a top 10 team
in Class 6A).
Then in the district
tournament mind you,
Plant City was 4-6 during
district play it was
consecutive low-scoring
wins against Durant (on a
run in the bottom of the
seventh) and Bloomingdale
to make the district final and
ensure a spot in the playoffs.
Maybe the game of the


year took place at Plant City
Stadium in the district final.
The Raiders were one strike
away from winning but
Sarasota Riverview hit a
triple to send the game to
extra innings and the Rams
won 5-4. Kayla Adams went
4-for-4 on that night.
Plant City lost in the first
round of the playoffs to
Kissimmee Osceola, but
what happened in the three
weeks before that will stand
out as the single most
impressive little run of the
year.
And the team had three
players (Jessica Pauley, Sam
Waldron, Leticia Manning)
sign to play junior college
ball.
4. Durant and Plant City
get split up. I still don't like
this, and I can assure you the
Cougars want to get back to
the "old days" when it comes
to the district football
alignments. Starting in
August, the Raiders and Cou-
gars were no longer district
opponents. Sure, they will
always play one another in
football but the game won't
have as much meaning for
the next three years unless
something changes.
Because of a difference in
school populations that at
the time was less than 100,
Durant was bumped up to
Clhss BA with Plant City
staying a 5A school for
football. It was a bad deal for
Durant because, simply,
there are no other 6A foot-
ball schools in the area
except for the three the
Cougars were grouped with,
and they were doozies in


DAREK
SHARP


Sarasota, Sarasota Riverview
and Riverview.
This football season
provided a great example of
how tough the sledding will
be in that league for the
Cougars.
The two Sarasota schools
were coming off a year
where they both advanced to
the regional finals, and yet it
was Riverview that won the
district and made it to the
second round of the playoffs.
Plant City, in 5A District 7, is
pitted with a more manage-
able group of East Bay,
Brandon and Bloomingdale.
The current districts are
supposed to stick through
the 2008 season.
3. Jason Brown. If you've
read The Courier at least
sparingly over the last four
years, you've probably heard
plenty about this guy. As this
is the final year we get-to see
him, at least on the high
school level, it is mandatory
that Brown earns a spot on
this (or any) "best of" list.
Here's hoping Brown can
get his first playoff action,
which would have to come
with the Raiders basketball


team. Though, of course,
he'll still have a shot at
individual glory in his last
track season this spring.
Brown can also lay claim
to having the best individual
performance of any Raider
or Cougar in 2005, for his
four-touchdown showcase
against Brandon. If you
weren't there (and, thank-
fully, I was), it's pointless to
try and describe the moves
displayed by the ultimate
running quarterback.
2. Carmine Giardina.
Nothing much more needs
to be said about this Durant
senior apart from where he
is going to be playing college
ball. Giardina was hotly
pursued by the country's
baseball powers and who'd
he go with? Oh, just the
national champion Texas is
all.
He wasn't alone, but
Giardina was certainly the
driving force behind Duran-
t's journey to the baseball
playoffs. Several games
Giardina carried the Cougars
with his pitching, but he was
also one of the best hitters.
Giardina was a finalist for
the Junior National Team,
which I toss out like it's
some sort of neatsy note, but
man, that is incredible.
Should be fun watching
Carmine throw (and hit) his
final prep season.
1. Todd Long. If this is a
list of the biggest stories,
with the impact they made
being included, then what
else can top the list? Long's
resignation as head football
coach at Plant City was not


completely unexpected to
those around him, and no
one really blamed him for
making the move to admi-
nistration, especially with
his family as a consideration.
But the move was sudden
to most of the Raiders, who
clearly were thrown for a
loop (and it didn't make
matters easier that he
transitioned to the Raiders'
rival school). Plant City went
from 4-3 and in control of its
district, to getting beat by a
combined 104-46 in its final
three games. It would be
naive to say the team had
not lost its focus due to the
departure of the coach.
As it turned out, any other
team in that whole region
was doomed, as Lakeland
steamrolled its way to the
state championship.
And since I was limited to
five choices, naturally some
outstanding candidates were
left off. So many come to
mind: the athletic and
academic excellence of Plant
City High's Clay Bavinger,
who managed to lead the
tennis team while finishing
up as 2005 school valedicto-
rian; Raiders swimmer
Stephanie Barker (a second
straight trip to the state
meet) and Durant divers
Kaylee Doback and Christo-
pher Plante (both top 10 at
states); the emergence of the
Durant wrestling program as
second only to Brandon as
THE area power; and to
everyone who reached the
state finals including, after
many years of near-misses,
the Plant City boys golf
team.


Raiders See Bounces Go Their Way


REACH RAM CLASSIC FINAL
ByDAREKSHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
The Plant City Raiders boys basketball team
got a good taste of tournament pressure over
the holidays. The taste was pretty sour after
going winless in Auburndale, but Plant City had
a much sweeter experience last week.
At the Ram Classic in New Port Richey, Plant
City finally had the bounces go its way. The
Raiders won a tense semifinal against Pom-
pano Beach in overtime. That allowed the Raid-
ers to play for the championship, where it lost
to host Ridgewood, but the 2-1 week has the
team entering the final month with a much
more upbeat outlook.
"The district tournament is right around the
corner," said Raiders head coach Gary Meyer.
"We have 12 games left, eight of them at home,
and we have a couple of three-game weeks, so
these last couple of weeks were good for us."
Particularly good for the Raiders was seeing a
last-second shot go in their favor, which was
the case last Thursday. Jason Brown hit a shot
late in regulation to force overtime, and in the
extra period the Raiders kept a slim lead
throughout and won 69-67. Brown scored 16
points and Chyijuan Cooper hit for 14.
"We knew nothing about them until we saw
them the day before, and they had a pretty
good team. Finally we got a close one," Meyer
said.
Ridgewood improved to 12-1 with the 55-46
victory over the Raiders in Friday's title game.


Cooper scored 14 and Rod Henderson had nine
for the Raiders.
Both Brown and Cooper were named to the
all-tournament team. In the first round, Plant
City's easiest win of the year, Cooper had 15
points as the Raiders won 67-46 over Brooks-
ville Central. Plant City (7-8) outscored Central
25-9 in the third quarter to take a 57-29 lead.
The Raiders have three games this week, all
at home. Riverview visits the Raider gym Friday
in a district contest, followed by a game with
Jefferson Saturday afternoon.
Durant settled for seventh place in a tourna-
ment at Hudson. With several junior-varsity
callups seeing significant time, the Cougars lost
to very strong teams Clearwater and Clearwater
Central Catholic, but then beat the host Cobras
53-49. John Mitchell, a 5-6 freshman, started
his first three varsity games as did Jeremy
Fussell and Damon Kolanowski.
The trio affectionally dubbed the "Little
Rascals" by Cougars head coach Jeff Shotwell,
since Kolanowski is the tallest at 5-9 combined
for 23 points in the win. Josh Fussell, a senior,
scored a career-high 26 points against CCC and
added 13 against Hudson. A.J. Garden-another
freshman, but well entrenched in the starting
lineup hit double figures in all three games.
At a very strong event in Tampa, the Durant
girls found themselves going up against two
small-school powerhouses and lost twice: to
defending Class 3A state semifinalist Academy
of Holy Names and then to Cambridge, which
lost two games all of last season. Academy, the
tourney host, went on to make the finals, where
it fell to 15-0 Freedom.
