Only one of the 25 young women
competing for the crown will be named
the 2006 Florida Strawberry Festival
Queen Feb. 4, but they were all winners
before the pageant even began, say orga-
nizers.
"I seem to say it every year, but at the
risk of repeating myself, this is a
remarkable group that will provide us
with a queen and four court members
who will do the Florida Strawberry Festi-
val. and Plant City proud," said Ste-
phanie Parker Shuff, a 1986 member of
the Strawberry Festival Queen's court.
Along with the queen, four others will
be selected to be part of the queen's
courn.
The contestants for the 72nd Florida
Strawberry Festival Pageant come from
a variety of area educational institutions.


Ten students attend Plant City High.
Nine attend Durant High. One is a stu-
dent at Bloomingdale High in Brandon,
and another attends Lakeland Christian.
Another student is home-schooled. Two
attend Hillsborough Community Col-
lege and one is a student at the Univer-
sity of South Florida.
'One of the criteria to compete in the
pageant is to maintain good grades in
school," Shuff said. "We set the min-
imum at a grade point average at 2.5, but
the average of this group is about a 3.7."
Shuff said one student is carrying a 5.6
as a senior, with three other contestants
at 5.0 or more.
"We want to stress that this is a schol-
arship pageant." Shuff said. "Each year
the queen and her court represent the
festival and Plant City in the most posi-
tive ways. And each year we look to help
further their scholastic careers by pro-


ving scholarships to advance their
schooling."
This year the festival is presenting the
queen with a $1,200 scholarship. The
first maid receives $1,000 for schooling
expenses, and the remaining court
members receive $800.
The Plant City Lions Club, the origina-
tors of the pageant, will contribute
$1,000 to the queen, and $250 to the
court for school expenses. Businesses
and individuals traditionally contribute
scholarship money and gift packages to
the queen and court through the Lions
Club.
The pageant will take place at Tomlin
Middle School, 501 N. Woodrow Wilson
St., Feb. 4 at 6 p.m. Tickets for the
pageant cost $10 and go on sale Feb. 3 at
5:30 p.m. the school. Organizers expect
about 500 tickets to be available for the
general public. Call: 477-4034.

Police Targeting Robberies, Burglaries


INCLUDES 3 HOME

INVASIONS
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
December was the season
for home invasions, robberies
and burglaries.
The last month of the year
went out with a bang as the
Plant City Police Department
reported 20 robberies, 24 bur-
glaries and three home inva-
sions.
Records show that in the
four preceding months rob-
beries averaged about 10 a
month.
Thus far, the investigations
into the December robberies
has resulted in one arrest and
multiple warrants for individ-
uals suspected in several of
the crimes.
"We are investigating three
home invasions, several
strong-armed robberies and
isolated robberies and bur-
glaries. Most of the strong-
armed robberies happened in
two general areas," said Sgt.
Jim Shultz, supervisor of
detectives for the department.
One of those areas Shultz
referred to is along Martin


Luther King Jr. Boulevard, bet-
ween Alexander and Waller
streets, south to Grant Street.
Another area targeted was east
of James L. Redman Parkway
from Lake to Ball streets and
east to Maryland Street.
"We think we have four
groups of three .or four indi-
viduals who are working inde-
pendently of each other,"
Shultz said.
The information Shultz has
is that the groups are made up
of a mix of local and out of
town suspects. Some of the
suspects are from Hills-
borough County, but others
are from Dade and Polk coun-
ties, he said.
Dejuan Hammond Bell of
14 N. Drake St. in Plant City
was arrested by Plant City
police Dec. 27 and charged
with two counts of robbery
home invasion and- strong-
armed robbery while using a
handgun. Detective Scot Reh-
bein said Bell is a suspect in a
Dec. 22 home invasion on
North Dort Street.
Bell, 19, is being held at the
Falkenburg Road Jail. His bail
is $37,500.
Shultz said warrants have
been issued for two other men
who are also suspects in the


Dort Street home invasion.
Police are searching for
Jason Maurice Johnson, 22, of
Lutz and Ronkedrick "Dean"
Alphonse, 18, of Hollywood,
Fla.
A warrant, in connection
with a Dec. 17 home invasion
in the 1400 block of Ohio
Street, has been issued for
Antwan Price, 21, of Plant City.
Hillsborough County Sheriff's
Office records show that Price
was arrested in May for bur-
glary and grand theft, and
again in September for bat-
tery.
Warrants also have been
issued for a Plant City 16-year-
old and two Polk County resi-
dents for their connection
with a Dec. 15 home invasion
that happened in the 1700
block of Hunter Street.

New Pediatric Unit



Opens At Hospital


ST. JOSEPH'S CHILDREN'S
AT SOUTH FLORIDA
BAPTIST
By Staff Report
St. Joseph's Children's, the
new pediatric unit at South
Florida Baptist Hospital, drew
more than 300-visitors during
its Jan. 22 open house.
Visitors toured the 301 N.
Alexander St. facility that
includes 13 interactive patient
rooms, equipped with video
games, televisions and DVD
players.
"Children have slightly dif-
ferent needs than adult
patients," said Shannon
Mitchell, manager of market-
ing at SFBH. "They need to be
more engaged and in a more
comfortable environment
where they feel safe and
secure. We want them to feel


at ease here."
"Parents will find the pedi-
atric services they need in a
child friendly setting," said Bill
Ulbricht, SFBH's chief operat-
ing officer. "The children of
Plant City will have easy access
to the only hospital in Hills-
borough County that special-
izes in children's health care."
The new unit will include
pediatric and family practice
doctors and one pediatric car-
diologist. Patients will have
access to more than 200 pedi-
atric specialty doctors through
a link with St. Joseph's Chil-
dren's Hospital.
"The opening of St. Joseph's
Children's at South Florida
Baptist Hospital is a tremen-
dous step in the development
of a network of children's
hospital care through the
region," said Michael Aubin,
St. Joseph's Children's
Hospital administrator.

OPINI ON




One Must Never Tolerate Evil


in is paying off for some American charities as
scared politicians in Washington try to dump their
Jack Abramoff campaign contributions. Putting
daylight between themselves and this first-class
crook will not be easy.


Abramoff no doubt caused
digestive problems for a
number of members of
Congress and their staffs when
he decided to turn canary and
sing the tunes dictated by
federal prosecutors. Corrup-
tion in Washington is so
pervasive that a number of
people forgot an important
lesson: There is no honor
among the dishonorable. Faced
with a long prison sentence,
the once-cocky Abramoff said,
"Who do you want me to rat
on?"
Many of these politicians
and arrogant little staff mem-
bers are now having night-
mares about orange jumpsuits
and bright, shiny handcuffs.
Let us all hope fervently that
their nightmares come true. Let
us all pray that there are still a
few honest people in the
Justice Department, protected
by civil service, who will do
their duty and not the bidding
of their political boss.
Abramoff was one of the
young stars of the "new
conservatives" rising through
the ranks of the College
Republicans. As it turned out,
these guys were neither new
nor conservative. They loved
big government as much as
the liberals as long as they
could control it and direct the


CHARLEY
REESE

patronage. Their morals were
as old as sin itself. They got
drunk on arrogance. They got
greedy. All of their high-blown
rhetoric was as nothing
compared with a fat bank
account, a mansion and
memberships at all the fancy
watering holes.
The problem is that in
Washington, the only god in
town is money. The pols need
money to run their campaigns.
The lobbyists need money to
buy their votes. The special
interests are more than eager
to supply the money in
exchange for favors. Why do
you think the tax code is about
22,000 pages of small print?
They need that verbiage to hide


favors written into the legisla-
tion in return for the lucre.
Campaign-finance reform
will never work. Whatever
amount of money a politician
needs to win he will find a way
to get by hook or by crook. The
answer has to be to find ways
to limit the amount of money
that can be spent. Multimil-
lion-dollar campaigns are an
invitation to corruption.
Under the original
Constitution, senators were
chosen by their respective state
legislatures. During one of the
reform frenzies, an amend-
ment changed this to make
senators run statewide. We
should rethink this. In today's
overpopulated America, it is
impossible to run a statewide
campaign in a large state
without spending millions of
dollars. Having senators
chosen by state legislators who
are answerable to the people
would take a huge hunk of
money out of the equation. It
would also help people realize
the importance of their state
legislators.
Another step should be to
require that all campaign
contributions come from
individuals who are legal
residents of the politician's
district. As it is today, once a
man gets to Washington, he
can raise his next campaign
kitty in Washington. This is a
huge disconnect between the
congressman and the people
back home he's supposed to
represent. He doesn't really
need the people back home. He
just needs the money, which he


gets in Washington, to fool the
people back home once every
two years.
Media, pollsters and market-
ing people have taken over our
political process. Huge
amounts of campaign money
flow into the pockets of these
people, and consequently, we
live in an age of perpetual
campaigning. Perhaps we
should limit campaigns to
three months, ban polling and
ban television advertising.
Before the three-month period
begins, candidates should be
forbidden to spend even one
dime on their campaigns.
You might have even better
ideas. The point is, all of us
must think of ways to shrink
the influence of money on the
American political process.
Power is shifting away from the
people to the big-money
crowd. Unless the trend is
reversed, it will inevitably lead
to more corruption and rule by
an oligarchy that will sit behind
the scenes and instruct its
bought politicians. Our
elections will become
meaningless, since the oli-
garchs will dictate the only
choices we have on the ballot.
One of the things that
worries me a lot these days is
the general absence of outrage.
I don't believe self-government
can work unless people get
angry about corruption. To
shrug it off is to accept it. One
must never tolerate evil.

Life In The Fast Lane: Are We In That Much Of A Hurry?


Don't you just love Florida's roads during the
winter months? Everyone drives so carefully, the
lights are exquisitely well timed, congestion is at
a minimum, traffic laws are followed to the letter
and it goes without saying that courtesy reigns.


Well, maybe not, but at least
we can all dream once in a
while.
I understand there's no easy
solution for the crowding, but
for the life of me I can't fathom
why people are convinced they
have to be in such a constant
hurry?
Interstate 75, of course,
amounts to an extra-special
treat. My parents live down in
Bradenton, so I am familiar
with the 40-mile stretch
between Tampa and State
Road 70.
Jesting aside, the experience
is beginning to border on the
surreal. All three lanes four or
more in some sections are
loaded, bumper to bumper,
and people fly by on both sides
at astonishing speeds.
Last week, A) because I was
bored, and B) for the pure love
of scientific inquiry, I decided
to steer my car into the "slow"
lane and set my cruise control
at a modest 77 mph. I won-
dered how far I could drive
before having to slow down.
Seventy-seven mph is pretty


DEREK
MAUL
Columnist

fast. Back in 19801 I would have
been pulled over in a heartbeat.
My hypothesis predicted
maybe a mile at best before I
ran into slower-moving
vehicles. I couldn't have been
more wrong. I was amazed to
see how long I was able to
maintain my pace. My little
Saturn cruised all the way from
Ellenton to the State Road 60
exit in Brandon. I didn't even
have to change lanes. More
than 30 miles and I didn't
touch the brakes once.


I'm talking about the right-
hand track. Multiple lanes of
solid traffic, probably a good
third of them large trucks, and I
cruised 7 mph more than the
posted speed limit with
absolutely nothing even
vaguely close to slowing me
down.
In fact, rather than running
up on the tail of some 72 mph
slowpoke, I was the one
causing aggravation to the flow
of traffic. Slow-lane traffic that
is. They were lined up behind
me waiting to get by. Some
honked, a few edged close to
my bumper and made furious
faces, a couple of impatient
speedsters even zipped by
using the emergency lane.
Several made interesting
gestures on their way past.
Just north of Sun City an
elderly person in an Oldsmo-
bile passed me like I was
standing still. And she was on
the entrance ramp, peering
over the steering wheel as if
unsure of what may lie beyond
the hood. She was doing well
past 80 but still managed to
flash the international highway
greeting sign on her way past.
Scientific studies are not
always enough to make the
drive interesting and most
radio tends to be mind-
numbing, so a couple of weeks
ago I pushed the blue "OnStar"


button to see what would
happen. My car came with one
year of free service so I thought
I'd check it out.
"Good morning Mr. Maul,"
the voice said. "My name is
Steve. I see you're driving north
on Interstate 75 just south of
Apollo Beach. You have 48
percent of your oil life left,
4,033 miles on the odometer
and the diagnostic tells me you
need to take no action at this
time regarding any of your
vehicle's systems."
"You've got to be kidding," I
replied. "You know exactly
where I am?"
"Absolutely," Steve said. "We
can collect information from
your vehicle and run tests that
pinpoint any problems you
may be having directly through
the satellite. We can even
unlock your car if you leave the
keys inside."
"Get out!" I said. "Is there
anything else you think I need
to know?"
"Just one more thing," the
disembodied voice suggested.
"You might want to pick up the
pace a little. I think you're
holding up traffic."

BETTY'S PLACE



Sullivan, Denham Singled Out For Honors


BETTY
BRIGGS
Columnist

Senior Aaron Sullivan,
captain of the Plant City High
School football team, is
tackling hometown chal-
lenges and doing a mighty
good job of it.
Aaron was recognized in
the recent Bank of America
Neighborhood Excellence
Initiative program at Tampa
Theatre.
The award recognizes
student leaders, organizations
and heroes who nurture and
help neighborhoods achieve
excellence. Five students from
the Tampa Bay area, includ-
ing Aaron, were chosen for
the honor.
Aaron will take part in a
paid summer internship with
the Boys & Girls Club to
experience firsthand how he
can help shape his commu-
nity, now and in the future.
He was an American Legion
Florida Boys State
representative and was
selected by the Plant City
Rotary Club as a delegate to
the World Affairs Youth
Seminar at Auburn Univer-
sity.

Sandy Denham is a 'hero'
Also making our commu-
nity proud is Sandy Denham,
a teacher at Plant City High,
who was recently selected as a
2005 Local Hero by the Bank
of America Neighborhood
Excellence Initiative program.
She is the sponsor of the
school's Best Buddies Club
that matches mainstream
students with those with
special needs.
Sandy was also recognized
for her work with the Special
Olympics, and received a
$5,000 check to go to the
charitable organizations of
her choice. It went to Best
Buddies and Special Olym-
pics.

Well done Eleanore McDade
Congratulations to Elea-
nore McDade, a talented artist
and beautiful woman, on the
winning design for the East
Hillsborough Art Guild
Strawberry Festival Art Show.
Her design was a boxcar full
of strawberries on railroad
tracks with the theme
"Making Tracks to Fun." The
design will appear on both the
front and back of the entry
forms for the show.

you Mrs. Robinson, my fifth-
grade teacher.

ber a teacher or guidance
counselor that sparked a love
for learning. Mrs. Robinson
did that for me. Sometimes
these "stars" in our lives shine
long after we've left school or
they've passed on.
Jan Henrick, a former
guidance counselor at Walden
Lake Elementary and a swim
coach, is one of these stars. In
2002, Jan and her husband,
Kevin, established the Jan
Henrick Achievement Award,
honoring students who turn
their lives around in some
way. The students are chosen
based on academic improve-
ment, attendance and overall
positive attitude.
When Jan passed away in
2004, her husband enlisted
the help of Sherrie Mueller,
the guidance resource
specialist at Plant City High
School, and sponsor Florida
Gas & Electric Corp., and
continued the award in honor
of Jan.
The winners each received
a $150 gift certificate to Wal-
Mart. Kevin is also including
the names of the students on
a plaque and will present it to
the school. These deserving
students will be recognized in
May.

7-year-old battles brain tumor
Rabbi Harold Kushner


wrote a book years ago in an
attempt to understand why
bad things happen to good
people. The family of Carley
McMaster, 7, including her
Plant City grandmother, Nita
McMaster, is dealing with just
that.
Nita, her son Scott and his
wife, Vindy, both longtime
residents of our area, but
currently living in Aiken, S.C.,
know the heartache of having
a child who is desperately
sick. Carley has a brain tumor
and is being treated in South
Carolina.

A fellow Plant City resident
and friend of Nita's (her
roommate at the College of
William and Mary 50 years
ago), has established an
account at Hillsboro State
Bank to help with hospital
expenses The Carley
McMaster fund. Scott has
insurance, but not nearly
enough to cover the astro-
nomical bills.

IN THE SPIRIT


The Rev. Russell
Martin
Lord of Life
Lutheran Church
The Rev. Russ Martin moved to
Plant City in 2001 with his family after
living 51 years in and around Colum-
bus, Ohio. He chose ministry as a
second career, or rather ministry
chose him. His is a remarkable story
of redemption. Martin is a self-
described alcoholic, in recovery since
1987. The grace that made his re-birth
possible defines him.
Q: Where were you raised?
A: I was born in Southwest Pennsyl-
vania in 1950. We moved to Youngs-
town, Ohio, when I was 7. That's
where I grew up. After high school I
spent four years in the Marines as a
mainframe computer operator.
Q: Where did you go to college?
A: Ohio State University at Colum-
bus. It took me 14 years. I was trying
to work full time, go to school full
time, and drink full time. I worked in
and around the mental health indus-
try, specializing in group homes and
on-the-job training.
Q: How did you get sober?
A: Sunday, April 19, 1987, I was
driving to my dad's house. I was
angry. I dumped the emotion and I
realized what a beautiful spring day it
was. It seemed to become brighter
and I was overwhelmingly aware of
new life. It was as if I heard a voice
that said, "I died so you don't have to
die like that." By the time I ended that

lou, and comedienne Janeane Garofalo.


road trip I was aware of the fact that I
was an alcoholic afid a drug user.
When I got home I went to my first AA
meeting.
Q: Then what happened?


A: I felt called to follow God. It took
three years to complete that first step.
I'd begun to attend church again and I
knew I wanted to become a disciple. I
wanted to go learn about God. I
thought the place to do that was


seminary. So I enrolled at Trinity
Lutheran.

SPIRIT
Continued From Page 12
City?
A: 2001. This is my second
church as a full-time pastor.
They're great people, open to
growth and healing. I saw the
potential to move forward.
We have around 216 mem-
bers and around 100 in
attendance Sundays.

Q: What do you like about
Plant City?
A: I really like the
newspaper. I love what the
Optimist Club and (the Plant
City) Parks and Recreation
(department) does for kids.
My son is involved in flag
football and soccer. I like that
we are close enough to
Tampa and Orlando that I
can go somewhere and then
come back. I love Walden
Lake. Our block is like Knots
Landing!

Q: Share an unusual
experience from church.
A: Back in Ohio the nephew
of the deceased was giving a
eulogy at the pulpit. His cell
phone went off in his suit
pocket. He had to stop talking
to turn it off.

Q: Talk about your family.
A: I married Cathy Ander-
son in 1991. She's a really
good mom to Eli. She's also a
teacher. She works for Easter
Seals as a home-based
developmental specialist,
working with infants and
toddlers. We have two large
dogs Kramer and Conan the
Destroyer two cats and
some fish.

Q: Is there a TV show you
try not to miss?
A: "The Daily Show with
Jon Stewart."

Q: What do you do for fun?
A: I like to watch good
movies, especially those with
good storytelling. "Batman
Begins" was wonderful. I like
to read. I like to camp. I'm a
Cub Scout den leader. We're
going to reactivate Troop No.
5 when my son crosses over
to Boy Scouts this spring. I'll
be the troop chaplain.

Q: Is America ready for a
female president?
A: Women make amazingly
gifted leaders, but I don't
believe the country would go
for it. I don't think America is
ready.

Q: What would your dream
lunch date be?
A: Three women. Writer
Belle Hooks, poet Maya
Angelou and comedienne
Janeane Garofalo. It would be
very interesting. I also like
Michael Moore. I call him the
thinking man's answer to
Rush Limbaugh.

Q: What Bible story would
you like to leave with readers?
A: From John's gospel, the
scene where Jesus invites the
disciples to, "Come and see."
They discover they have
found the messiah, and they
go and invite others to come.

Durant Takes To The Stage With Younger Students


'WIZARD OF OZ' A
COMMUNITY AFFAIR
By LINDA CHION KENNEY
Ichion@mediageneral.com
Theatre Durant is opening
its doors to area schools in its
staging of "The Wizard of Oz,"
featuring the talents of teach-
ers and thespians from Durant
High School and students
from Nelson Elementary and
Mann and Mulrennan middle
schools.
The show opens Jan. 27 and
runs Jan. 28 and Feb. 3-4 at the
Durant auditorium at 4748
Cougar Path in Plant City.
"In rehearsals since Novem-
ber, this promises to be an
extravaganza worth the ticket
price," said Ed Mason, drama
sponsor at Durant High. "This


is Durant's first attempt to
consolidate talent from other
schools in the area. It has
proven to be an enjoyable
experience."
Earning its classic status as
a 1939 movie starring Judy
Garland, the show follows the
adventures of a Dorothy, a
Kansas farm girl caught in the
grips of a tornado. Struck on
the head by a piece of wood,
she and her dog, Toto, are
transported to a "land beyond
the rainbow" where she tests
her brains, heart and courage
with the help of a scarecrow,
tin man and lion.
Carl Russ plays a chorus
role, but covets the role of Tin
Man.
"I used to love the movie. I
was obsessed with it," he said.
"I always used to pretend to be
the Tin Man. I always thought


he was so cool because he's a
man of tin and he squeaks."
"I saw the movie with my
grandmother a long time ago
when I was little," said cast
member Jacqueline Watson,
who plays a Winky Guard and
a Crow. "It's a cute musical
and a family show. I still see it
once in a while, in a blue
moon."
Mark Stutzman plays the
head of the Winky guards.
"I'm the witch's guard. She
enslaved our nation and made
us her guards," he said. "It's a
lot of fun, performing with the
middle school and elementary
school students. I was proba-
bly about 3 when I first saw
the show on TV."
The show is adapted from L.
Frank Baum's venerated chil-
dren's book, "The Wonderful
Wizard of Oz," written in 1899


and published a year later.
"The production brings to
the stage all the characters
and songs that you have seen
on the screen for the past 67
years," Mason said, noting in
particular such classics as
"Follow the Yellow Brick
Road" and "Somewhere Over
the Rainbow."
Because of the show's pop-
ularity, Mason said he decided
to double-cast key parts,
including Dorothy. Filling the
role for Durant are Rachael
Sanders and Sarah Mitchel.
Traci Reynolds and Jasmyn
Hendricks share the role of
Glinda, the Good Witch of the
South, while Paige Arms and
Kelli Santos bring to the stage
the Wicked Witch of the West.
Jonathan Weaver, Stephen
Heid and Eric Mercado fill the
roles of Scarecrow, Tin Man

Above, Durant goalkeeper Megan Kim snatches a corner kick before Sarasota Riverview's Natalie
Sherk can head the ball into the net during last week's Class 6A-District 8 girls soccer final. Kim
was sharp in goal for the Cougars with six saves, but Sherk was able to slip past a goal to give the
Lady Rams the district championship and a home playoff game. At right, Durant's Amanda Bricker
heads the ball out of the zone past Ella Gentry as Cougar Kelsey Bowers looks on. Durant was
scheduled to play its region quarterfinal game tonight at 7 p.m. at St. Petersburg High School.

Cougar Girls Head To St. Pete For Region Playoffs


BOYS SOCCER DISTRICT FINAL
SCHEDULE FOR TONIGHT
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
If a one-goal game was going to go
against them, the Durant girls soccer
team picked the right time for it to
happen. The Cougars lost to Sarasota
Riverview, 1-0, last Friday in the finals
of the Class 6A-District 8 tournament,
but because of a close win in the tour-
nament semifinal, Durant's season is
still going.
A goal by freshman Caitlin Dever
with only two minutes to go in regula-
tion gave Durant a 2-1 win against East
Bay last Wednesday. That result
ensured the Cougars a place in the
regional playoff bracket.
The loss in the district finals, though
it makes things tougher, at least did
not end the year for the Cougars. How-
ever, they probably won't get a home
game the rest of the year. Durant starts
the postseason tonight when it visits
St. Petersburg High, which was a sur-
prise winner of District 7.
Tonight also marks the finals of the
boys District 8 tournament. Plant City
and Durant went in as the top two
seeds and, if they were able to win in
Tuesday night's scheduled semifinals,


would play one another tonight (7
p.m.) for the district title at Raider Sta-
dium.
For Durant's girls, the trip to St. Pete
High takes them in a more southernly
direction than was expected, since
Sickles was supposed to be the 6A-7
champ. But St. Pete not only upset the
Gryphons, but did so convincingly in
the District 7 final. The Green Devils
gave Sickles its first loss of the year, 4-
0. St. Pete got the goals on a total of
only seven shots.
"They have a couple of speedsters,"
said Durant head coach Ron Evans.
"We'll try and put high preesure on
their defense and try to make them
make a mistake, and take advantage of
it if we can."
Durant did not have many great
chances to score in the district final,
and Sarasota Riverview got the game's
only goal with 18 minutes left. The
Cougars did get six goals in winning
their first two games of the tourney
though, starting with last Tuesday's 4-
0 win over Plant City. Gabi Rivera
scored twice in that game.
Against East Bay, Trinity Thompson
scored the first goal before the Indians
made it 1-1 early in the second half,
setting the stage for Dever's winner.
Unfortunately, Dever suffered a foot
injury. That, paired with an ankle
injury that had likely ended senior Lisa


Hayman's season, will certainly not
help the Cougars.
"We don't have a lot of game experi-
ence on the bench right now," Evans
said.
On the plus side, Danya Conrad and
Mary Helen Moran both returned from
injuries last week. Goaltender Megan
Kim continued her great play, espe-
cially keeping Durant within striking
distance against Sarasota Riverview.
Kim's efforts will be a key tonight
against a St. Pete team that in 16 games
has posted 12 shutouts. The Green
Devils are 14-2, Durant is 10-5-5.
If Durant wins, it would play next
Tuesday on the road against the
winner between Orlando Boone and
Eau Gallie. Boone is 21-3-3 on the
season but played in the weaker of the
three Orlando-area districts. In its dis-
trict championship game, Boone
edged Timber Creek, the same school
Durant easily defeated on the road to
start last year's playoffs.
Should Durant win twice to advance
to the region final, it would only get to
host if its opponent were another dis-
trict runner-up, namely Sickles or Dr.
Phillips. The FHSAA girls soccer finals
are set for Feb. 9-11 in Fort Lauder-
dale.
Plant City's boys hope to make it
there as well, but had an unusually dif-
ficult draw for Tuesday night's


semifinal. Sarasota Riverview went 16-
4-3 on the field this season but had to
forfeit a pair of district games, wins
over Durant and Sarasota, due to the
use of ineligible players. Instead of
being seeded second, the Rams were
knocked to the No. 5 spot. In Monday's
first round, Sarasota Riverview won a
wild 6-5 game against sixth-seed River-
view. The score was tied 3-3 less than
20 minutes in. Eventually, Sarasota
Riverview won in sudden death.
Bumped up to the No. 2 seed,
Durant easily handled East Bay, 4-1, on
Monday. Ed Carbajal scored two goals
and Justin Stephens had a goal and
two assists. The Cougars advanced to
face Sarasota, which was a 2-0 victor
against Lakeland. Sarasota won last
year's district title en route to the state
finals, but graduated most of its start-
ers.
The Raiders finished up the regular
season strong on Friday with a domi-
nating 10-2 performance at Jefferson
High. The lopsided score might have
explained why Jefferson officials appa-
rently forgot the game was scheduled,
finally getting someone to the school
to turn the lights on five minutes after
scheduled kickoff.
Colin Gill scored four goals, Stevie
Lamas and Brian Fekete added two
each and Jordan Barry and Patrick
Hines rounded out the scoring.


SHARP CUTS


Too Early To Cheer ForNew 'Sport'


Really, I'm all for cheer-
leaders.
But when I saw that
cheerleading could become
an actual, full-fledged sport,
I couldn't help but react to
the idea with skepticism.
Yes, the FHSAA has
approved "competitive
cheering" as a sport for next


season. I realize how big a
deal the cheering events, like
the one that packed the
Armwood High stands on
Saturday and like the ones
that you see all the time on
Sun Sports, are. Here comes
the "but" though.
BUT when I think of
sports, I think of games. You


know, this team vs. that
team. How is cheerleading
going to work? Will Plant
City "play" against Armwood
one night, and then Cham-
berlain a few nights later?
Will stats be kept? Is there a
scoreboard, for that matter?
If I'm going to have to report
on these "games" I need to


know the lingo.
Are there time-outs to
change the game plan? Can
you boo? Better yet, if you're
not a cheerleader, can you
still cheer for the cheerlead-
ers and do you feel kind of
awkward in so doing? I'm
sure more questions are to

come.
Believe me, I'm not going
to argue whether or not
cheerleaders are athletes.
And I know how dedicated
these young women are, and
I certainly couldn't attempt
any of those maneuvers. And
when you read that in the
handful of states where
cheerleading is one of the
recognized sports, it is
second only to football in
generating revenue, it would
be foolish not to reserve
judgement.
Until then, though, we
have plenty of sports to
ruminate on. Amazingly, we

Four teams in the Cadet
League (8-10) improved to 4-0
with wins on Saturday morn-
ing.
In the American Division,
the Knicks and Colts both hold
that mark to share first place -
and they face off this Saturday
at 9:45 a.m. at the Plant City
Family YMCA gym. DeAndrew
Wooden scored 19 points as
the Knicks topped the Trail-
blazers last weekend, while
P.J. Almon had 12 to lead the
Colts past the Cougars 35-20.
The Panthers are in third in
the division at 3-1.
Both the Grizzlies and
Hornets are off to 4-0 starts in
the National Division. The
Grizzlies have been doing it
more with defense, averaging
less than six points per game
allowed, including a 28-2
result. The Hornets have out-
scored everyone else in the

unbeaten are the Bulls, at 3-0.
As it happens, the Bulls will
take on the Hornets Monday
night, followed by a game next
Saturday against the Grizzlies.
A pair of 3-0 squads lead
their respective divisions in
the Junior League (11-13). In
the American Division, the
76'ers have averaged 36 points
per game.
On Monday night, Adrian
Nelson scored 16 points to
help the Sixers edge the Magic,
32-29. The Lakers won Satur-
day to go to 3-0 atop the
National Division.
That record also had the
high-scoring Nuggets on top

Nuggets were averaging 56

tough the Sharks are, but
Riverview at the same time
found out how good the
Cougars' Amy Rogers is. She
put up 25 points, and still
Riverview won 63-38 to
improve to 17-2.
Last week, Rogers scored
21 and freshman TeKeyah
Clark had a great game with
16 points, and the Cougars
edged East Bay, 48-46.
Last Wednesday was a
nice night for the Cooper
twins at Plant City, with both
leading their teams in
scoring Chyijuanna scored
19 for the girls and Chyijuan
18 for the boys. The Raider
boys accounted well for

themselves in two games

both games. First, the
Raiders fell 66-52 at Sickles,
and then in a game that
featured 50 fouls (that's one

Raiders lost 72-57 to Lake-

my family and my wife's
family live in this area. There
are so many recreational and
spiritual opportunities for
children and families. I think
Plant City people are known
for their honesty, work ethics
and modesty. It is not easy to
find a community like Plant
City anymore.
Q: What are your goals for
the chamber in 2006?
A: We have created a new
Government and Community
Affairs Division in the
chamber structure this year.
Falling under that division is
the revised Education
Committee. I wanted to focus
this year on enhancing the
already strong alliance
between the business
community and the area

benefit, the community
benefits. I discussed my
thoughts with (chamber

Lott Leaves Legacy As Chamber Chair

MEMBERSHIP REACHED
RECORD LEVEL
Staff Report
The outgoing chairman of
the Plant City Chamber of
Commerce's board of direc-
tors, Rick Lott, is a busy man.
He owns three Lott-Mather

tiac-GMC car
dealerships;
Zeno Office

Sment and
S, software
_4 company;
Bene fit
1,1 ..-' '1 Resources
L group, an
Lott insurance
company;
and Matrix Medical LLC, a
home health care company.
He's also sits on the Plant City
City Commission.
But he never balked at
taking on the the chairman-
ship of the chamber.
"Rick has done an excellent
job," said Daniel Coton, the
chamber's new board chair-
man for 2006. "He's a very
hard-working guy"
"It's been a wonderful year
with Rick as chairman," said


Marion Smith, chamber presi-
dent. "We really got .a lot
accomplished. Rick has a real
talent for getting the best of
out people."
At the beginning' of his
chairmanship, Lott and the
board set a goal of taking
membership over the 700
mark for the first time in
chamber history. They ended
the year with 720 members.
"That's something we are
very proud of," Lott said. "If
you are making things happen
in the community people
want to be a part of it. It really
shows that the chamber is
working hard."
But it was the creation of
the chamber's new growth
and planning division that
Lott is most proud of.
The division was Lott's
brainchild and aims to
promote more communica-
tion between the chamber,
the city and the county.
The division is chaired by
Plant City businesswoman
Jennifer Closshey.
"Anytime you bring on a
new division the most impor-
tant thing is to get it off
ground, but with Jennifer
chairing it and the board
standing behind it we have
created a great alliance with

the city and the county."
Lott is quick to point out
that the growth and planning
division does not want to get
involved in politics.
"We want to work with the
city and county in planning
new growth. We want to be
involved in policy, not the pol-
itics. We want to help provide
a second set of eyes and ears.
It's formalizing a relationship
so we can work together."
Lott, a fourth-generation
Plant City resident, said the
group is not opposed to
growth, but "we want that
growth to reflect the future of
Plant City. I would like to be
able to blindfold someone and
bring them here and take off
that blindfold and they would
say 'I am in Plant City.'"
When Coton formally takes
over as board chairman at the
chamber's 24th annual Chair-
man's Banquet tonight, Lott,
who has been a chamber
member for five years, will move
to co-chair the growth and plan-
ning division with Closshey.
He'll also have no problem
recognizing the man he is
passing the gavel to.
"Danny (Coton) and I go
back to the sixth grade. We
played for the Plant City Colts
together," Lott said smiling.

Bike Fest, a monthly event celebrating everything on two wheels, drew more than 20,000 to downtown Plant City for its third anniversary.


DIVISION ORGANIZES
PIG JAM, BIKE FEST
BySHERRI LONON
slonon@mediageneral.com
When tourism thrives, the community
and its businesses prosper.
That's the reasoning behind the Greater
Plant City Chamber of Commerce's push to
market the city and its environs through a
host of events designed to draw in tourists
both from nearby communities and far
away.
This task falls on to the shoulders of those
who volunteer with the chamber's division
of growing businesses. By playing host to a
number of events throughout the year, the
division brings people and money to town,
officials say. This in turn is good for


business, especially since many of the visi-
tors keep making return trips.
"The division of growing businesses is a
committee that basically is a brainstorm
think tank that comes up with ideas to
increase awareness of Plant City and com-
merce in Plant City," said Steve Solomon,
who chairs the division.
But brainstorming isn't all volunteers on
the committee do. They also work a lot.
The committee is responsible for hosting
the monthly Strawberry Classic Car Show
and the Bike Fest in addition to putting on
the annual Pig Jam and taking part in a
number of other events, including the Flor-
ida Strawberry Festival.
"The chamber of commerce's role is to
create commerce," Solomon said.
People who come to town for an event
also bring money and they have a propen-
sity to return to spend even more, said


Marion Smith, chamber president.
"We have a beautiful downtown historic
district," said Smith. "A lot of people who
come for the events come back to shop."
Members of the division's multiple com-
mittees are responsible for hosting the dif-
ferent events. The notion is to make them as
successful as possible. The bike fest, for
example, recently celebrated its third anni-
versary with crowds that topped 20,00.0. On
average, the bike fest draws between 5,000
and 9,000 people each month to downtown
Plant City.
The Pig Jam, also only a few years old,
drew 10,000 during its run last November,
Solomon said.
The event's popularity has grown so
much that it pulled contestants from differ-
ent parts of the country and even boasted

judges from the Kansas City
Barbeque Society.
Not satisfied to stop with
the events already on its cal-
endar, the division is dream-
ing up new ideas as well, both
Solomon and Smith said.
In the works now is an Out-
doors Extravaganza that will
feature a number of sporting
goods vendors two times a
year.
It will be "a big hunting and
fishing show where all the big
vendors will come and dis-
play (their wares)," Solomon
said. "There's a big need for it
in the Plant City area."
Details on the new event
have not been finalized, but
Solomon said plans are to
have the show make its debut
in August 2007.
The work of the division is
important to the chamber,
said Danny Coton, chamber
chairman.
"It exposes the Plant City
community to so many other
individuals," he said.
"It promotes the chamber
and it promotes Plant City.
It's an extremely important
division."
Putting together events
that draw people from all
over the Tampa Bay area, or
the country in the case of the


The Strawberry Classic Car Show also helps draw visitors to Plant


Pig Jam, is a labor of love for
Solomon and his volunteers.
"If you don't give back to


your community, you're
missing the point," he said.

Chamber Starts Year

With Speaker's Bureau

GETTING A BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK


By SHERRI LONON
slonon@mediageneral.com
The Greater Plant City
Chamber of Commerce has
become famous for its Pig
Jam, Bike Fest and the Straw-
berry Classic Car Show, draw-
ing visitors from all over the
region and even country.
But the chamber does much
more than host popular
events, leaders say.
In an effort to get the word
out about its less-visible under-
takings, the chamber is kicking
off a speakers bureau this year.
Operating under the auspices
of the chamber's community
and governmental affairs divi-
sion, the bureau will provide
short presentations about the
organization's overall impact
on the community to civic
groups, businesses, schools and
more, said Danny Coton, the
chamber's chairman.
"The idea behind it is our
events, those things are very
visible events," he said. "What

"What the speaker's

is get the community

the local business
community other
than what is note-
worthy in the news."

from the events and education
to governmental affairs, plan-
ning and business develop-
ment.
In addition to its monthly
and annual events, the cham-
ber has a host of other divi-
sions and committees whose
members are constantly beat-
ing the bushes to improve the
quality of life within the area


for both businesses and r.esi-
dents, he said.
"We have all these groups
.out there trying to help with
the future of Plant City,"
explained Marion Smith, the
chamber's president.
Smith listed off some of the
highlights of the chamber's
- lesser-known efforts. They
include Leadership Plant City,
the New Teacher Coffee, the
Tallahassee.Trek and the work
of such chamber groups as the
growth and planning division,


which will work with
government agencies to help
shape the community's future.
Within the growth division are
subcommittees that will deal
with transportation issues,
commercial and residential
development, education con-
currency and more.
"We're trying to look at how
we want Plant City to look in
the next 25 years," she said.
The idea behind the growth
division is for chamber mem-
bers to research ongoing or


upcoming issues and make
recommendations to city,
county and even state
government in regard to them,
she said.
For its part, the speakers
bureau will be charged with
making sure others in the
community know about all of
the functions of the chamber.
"The chamber's not all about
the Margarita Ball or Pig Jam,"
Coton said.
While some chamber staff
members are already available


to give talks to groups, the full
bureau is expected to be up
and running later this year. A
video presentation is currently
being developed, Coton said.
"My personal goal for the
year is to get that committee
established, up and running
and (have it) be a real integral
part of the chamber's
function," he said.

the chamber, call 754-3707 or

Education A Priority Say Chamber Members


FORMS FOUNDATIONS,
REVAMPS PROGRAMS
By SHERRI LONON
slonon@mediageneral.com
Through a bit of reorganiz-
ing and the addition of a few
new programs, the Greater
Plant City Chamber of Com-
merce is pulling out the stops
to support students within the
community, officials say.
With more than 700 mem-
bers, the business organization
already has a long-standing
mentoring program in area
schools and has given out
scholarships for a number of
years in addition to hosting
such events as the New
Teacher Breakfast.
This year, the chamber
wanted to do more.
To help it get more involved
in education, the chamber's
board of directors decided to
concentrate efforts more
directly by working with
individual schools and the
school district to discover
needs and find out what can
be done to fill them.
In addition, the chamber is
in the process of incorporat-
ing the Greater Plant City
Chamber of Commerce Inc.,
which will make its schol-
arship and charitable work fall
under nonprofit rules.
It also has added a commit-
tee to help it monitor progress
of area schools in regard to
education concurrency laws.
"We're working with the
schools and the business
community to try and become
a liaison to improve the
resources available to the
teachers, PTAs and the stu-
dents," said Danny Coton,
chamber chairman. "There
may be a lot of support avail-
able the schools don't know


how to tap into."

Partnering for the future
Kelleigh Klein is the cham-
ber member charged with
overseeing the committee to
boost the chamber's partner-
ship efforts with schools.
Through the business part-
nership program, the cham-
ber and its members will find
out what schools need to help
them do their jobs better,
Klein said.
"The chamber will serve as
a liaison to open the doors
even wider between the busi-
nesses and the schools in
Plant City," said Klein. "We
would like all of the businesses
to be involved in schools.
There is a place for every
business to be involved.
There's not a certain level of
giving."
Marshall Middle School
principal Josie Sanders could-
n't agree more.
Sanders said any level of
support from small donations
of time or money to larger
donations go a long way
toward helping schools do
their jobs.
"It's very, very important,"
said Sanders of businesses'
efforts on behalf of schools.
Money given to her school is
used for such things as
computer programs, books to
promote FCAT reading and
more. "There's always a need-
for additional books."
Coton said the effort to
increase the chamber's role in
area schools is vital not only
for the schools themselves,
but also the business commu-
nity.
"The gain from the business
perspective is we want the
Plant City students and the
surrounding schools to realize
and have contact with the
business community," Coton


said.
The idea is to provide
opportunity for Plant City stu-
dents to learn and grow in
their hometown while discov-
ering all the opportunities
that await them after gradua-
tion to stay in the area for their
careers, he said.
."It really makes a lot of
sense for businesses and
schools to be working
together," Klein said. "There's
a lot of wins with partnering
with education."

Creating a foundation
for the future
Following along with its
mission to become even more
involved in education, the
chamber is in the process of
creating its own nonprofit
foundation.
The Greater Plant City
Chamber of Commerce Foun-
dation Inc. will not only help
the chamber's educational
scholarship program grow, it
will also help with the organiz-
ation's other charitable
efforts, such as making dona-
tions to the area's food bank
and other nonprofits, said
Jennifer Closshey, past cham-
ber chairwoman and current
chair of the growth and plan-
ning division.
"It will help us bring more
money (in), it will help us have
more programs and it will
enable volunteers to see their
efforts -re making a differ-
ence," Klein said of the foun-
dation.
According to Coton, the
paperwork for the foundation
has been filed with the state.
From there, the foundation
will need to undergo the scru-
tiny of the Internal Revenue
Service before becoming offi-
cial.
Once it's up and running,
the nonprofit status of the


"The chamber will serve as a liaison to open
the doors even wider between the businesses
and the schools in Plant City, We would like
all ofthe businesses to be involved in schools.
There is a place for every business to be
involved. There's not a certain level of
giving."
KELLEIGH KLEIN
Chamber member


foundation will enable the
chamber to leverage for
matching-fund dollars from
other agencies to bolster the
amount of scholarships it is
able to give out in addition to
helping it gain more revenue
for other charitable activities,
Closshey said.
"It is a very valuable tool,"
she said.
Last year, the chamber was
able to give away about $8,000
to area students to attend
Hillsborough Community
College. The goal is to con-
tinue building on that, she
said.
"We'd like to be able to be a
driving force for helping
young people achieve their
educational desires while
staying part of our commu-
nity."

Keeping up with growth
Following in the footsteps
of the state Legislature's
education concurrency laws,
the chamber has created its
own watchdog group to
measure area schools' ability
to handle growth.
The state laws prohibit
planned growth without first
making sure schools can
handle the impacts either
immediately or within a
several-year period after
development gets under way.


Fred Johnson will chair the
chamber's education concur-
rency committee.
"We're just trying to make
sure we stay up on our situa-
tion and act in a unified way to
influence our elected offi-
cials," Johnson said. The focus
is to make sure "we can grow
our community."
The committee will keep
track of growth issues in rela-
tion to educational impacts
and do what it can to make
sure things are in place to
allow continued growth.
"A lot of people don't want
us to grow, but their head's in
the dirt if they don't think it's
coming," Johnson said. "The
best thing is to stay on top of it
and make sure it's not some-
one in Tallahassee or Tampa
telling us what to do."
Coton is pleased with the
chamber's efforts on behalf of
education.
"There's been a lot of work
going on to get some of these
things off the ground," he
said.
"I'm really pleased with the
progress they've made."
For her part, Sanders could-
n't be more pleased either.
"I can tell you from Mar-
shall's stance that it is very
needed," she said. "We are
constantly looking for
business partners to give us
assistance."

CHAIRMAN
Continued From Page 3


the assistance of the general
director of Area VI schools,
Barbara Franques, in turning
those thoughts into reality.
Kelleigh and Barbara are both
dynamic individuals and I am
very excited about what can
be accomplished by this
committee.
Under that same division,
we also created the Speaker's
Bureau. Kelleigh Klein also
agreed to chair this commit-
tee. The Plant City chamber is
doing so much work behind
the scenes to benefit this
community. Much of that
work does not receive as
much publicity and media
attention as some of the more
popular chamber events. The
purpose of the Speaker's
Bureau is to really reach out
to the community and ensure
that the chamber is meeting
the needs of the business
community. We also want our
business community and
residents to know that the
chamber volunteers are
working hard for them and
that there are many opportu-
nities for individuals get
involved on chamber com-
mittees.
In addition, Marion Smith,
the president of the chamber,
brought up the idea to create
the Greater Plant City Cham-
ber of Commerce Foundation
that would have 501(c) (3)
status. The corporation has
been filed and we are working
on the application to obtain
the 501(c) (3) status. We hope
to have that completed in the
very near future. We hope to
use the foundation to create
additional opportunities to
further the work of the
chamber.

Q: The city issued 1,787
building permits last year and
expects to see 400 new homes
go up in the Plant City area


this year. What is fueling this
growth?
A: A common phrase in real
estate is "location, location,
location." Plant City is
centrally located in the
beautiful .state of Florida
along the 1-4 corridor. Not
much else needs to be said.
That, together with the charm
of the Plant City community
and strength of the business
community, make this area
extremely attractive for
residential and commercial
growth.

Q: Are there are growth-
related issues the city should
watch out for?
A: Growth is inevitable.
How to prepare for it is
another question. The
extensive growth that is
expected over the next several
years will have a tremendous
impact on our already
overburdened roads, infra-
structure and school system.
Though there is a
simultaneous benefit, growth
does not come without a cost.
The state, county and local
governments will need to
make some hard decisions to
provide for the current and
expected growth in the area.
The Growth and Planning
Division of the.chamber is
monitoring these issues as
they come up and will bring
recommendations to the
board when the chamber can
be of assistance.

Q: What kind of businesses
would you like to see the city
attract?
A: I would like to see the
city attract businesses that
would create the need for
upper level, higher-income
jobs. I would like our young
people to feel that there are
opportunities available to
them right here in Plant City


,after they graduate from high
school or college.

Q: How important is
education to a strong
business base and why?
A: Education is a personal
priority of mine. My wife
taught school until our
children were born and my
mother was a teacher for 38
years. My mother truly loved
being a teacher and instilled
in my sister.and me the
importance of education. At a
function a few days ago, Dr.
Gwen Stephenson, the
Hillsborough Community
College district president,
commented that "education
is opportunity" and
"education is the great
equalizer." I do not believe it
can be said better than that.
As successful businesses are
considering relocating to
Plant City, the quality of the
local educational system is a
very real consideration.
Therefore, I truly believe that
the chamber's assistance in
creating additional resources
for our schools will strengthen
our local workforce.

Q: How can that be done?
A: A primary focus of the
chamber Education Commit-
tee this year is to assist in
bringing the business com-
munity and thepschools
together. There are so many
untapped resources available
to our schools from our
business community. Right
now we are planning to
arrange meetings to bring at
least one school per month
together with two business
and let each discuss their
needs. We have a wonderful
school system with very
motivated and dedicated
administrators and teachers. I
believe it would be great
accomplishment if the


chamber can help facilitate
some dialogue between the
schools and the business
community.
Dr. Felix Haynes, the
Hillsborough Community
College Plant City campus
president and chamber board
member, is working with the
business community and the
local high school administra-
tors to ensure that the .
educational opportunities
available are meeting the
needs of the business com-
munity.

Q: If you had lunch with
anyone in the world for one
hour who would it be and
why?
A: My wife. We have four
very wonderful, very active
children. I can't remember
the last time my wife and I
had a quiet lunch or dinner
together. Seriously, I would
like to spend an hour with
President George Bush to get
his personal perspective on
the issues facing the country.

Q: Who has most influ-
enced you and how?
A: I have been very
fortunate to have dealt with
many people that have
influenced me. However, I
would have to say my parents
have influenced me most. My
parents are modest, hard-
working, non-judgmental
people who always instilled in
my sister and me to be
respectful and kind to others
irrespective of who or what
they are or have. My parents
are not rich or famous but yet
want for nothing. That is a
nice place to be in life. My
parents are very different. My
father is rather quiet and my
mother doesn't know a
stranger. Though their
personalities are different,
they are fiercely loyal to each


other and to our family. They
laid a solid foundation for my
sister and me.

Q: What are you most
proud of in your business life?
A: I try to run my law
practice honestly and ethi-
cally. I feel very fortunate to
have a successful law practice
and I appreciate the personal
relationship I have with my
clients.

Q: If you could give advice
to a young person, what
would it be and why?
A: I often remind my oldest
son that it is better to have
tried and failed than not to
have tried at all. This is a
common saying that can be
applied to many aspects of
life. The only way to be sure
you won't fail is to not try.
There are so many opportuni-
ties available for those who
aren't afraid to try even when
the outcome may be
unknown.

Q: What hobbies do you
enjoy?
A: I enjoy playing most any
type of sport. I try to run at
least a few times a week.
However, most of my free
time is spent with my family
and I enjoy their activities.
Fortunately, they are involved
in various sports activities.
Usually at any given time of
the day, one of my children is
always ready to ride a bike,.
throw a football or baseball
around or play a game of
basketball.

Q: What would people be
surprised to know about you?
A: I would have to say that
most people would be
surprised to know that I own

some cows that are kept
south of town in the Lithia
area. I.bought my first cows as
calves and often hand-feed
them. However, as my
practice has expanded and
my children have become
more involved in activities, I
have not been able to spend
as much time tending to them
as I once did. My cows are on
my father-in-law's property
and he has been most
gracious in assisting me in
watching over them. If I
wasn't an attorney, I would
want to be involved in the
agriculture industry. I repre-
sent many of the area farms
and farmers and, for now, will
have to be satisfied with that!
