Downtown Nativity In Works, Minus TheControversy
CITY EXPECTED TO OK
PERMIT THIS WEEK
Supporters of a downtown
nativity scene expect the city to
approve a permit for a creche at
McCall Park this week.
"We do not anticipate any
problems," said Dr. Larue Rich-
ter, who handed in the paper-
work Nov. 10. "Assuming we
get approval, we expect to get
the display set up a "few days
before they turn on the (holi-
day) lights downtown." The
official tree lighting is Nov. 30.
The nativity scene drew
national attention last year
when it was removed by city
officials, citing the separation
of church and state. A compro-
mise engineered by Mayor
John Dicks saw the display
back up a few days later. City
commissioners later voted to
set up a "limited public forum"
in McCall Park.
According to the ordinance,
displays are permitted from the
Friday following Thanksgiving
through Jan. 1 or the last day of
Hanukkah, whichever is last.
"(The nativity) is what
Christmas is really about," said
Richter, a leader of Friends of
Christmas. The small group of
area residents set up the nativ-
ity scene last year.
- "Dec. 25 is not just a holiday
and it wasn't created by the
card companies to sell cards,"
said the group at its Web site,
"It's the birthday of our savior,
This creche was erected by Friends of Christmas last year in McCall
Park. It was removed by the city, but then allowed back. The group
expects to have the display up again by the end of the month.

Dicks. "The Urban Forest concept
will make use of the trails cleared for

Jordan To Lead Parade
CHARITY FOUNDER IS CHRISTMAS
PARADE GRAND MARSHAL
At first she wasn't sure she had heard it
"I would never have thought I would be
grand marshal of a parade. I am delighted."

Dwayne Herring and Shevila Martin. She
worked as waitress for 13 years and then at The

She founded Unity in the Community in
1999. "I just saw a need in community and
wanted to help people," Jordan said.
The organization donates to charitable
groups like Meals on Wheels and the United
Food Bank of Plant City. It has donated more
than $150,000 to charities since it was.
"The community has always supported us
from day one. Plant City is a uniquely caring
community," Jordan said.
The parade will feature a new route this year
starting near Santos Apex and going east on
Reynolds Street to downtown, ending at the
Hillsborough County Courthouse. The lineup
will start around the Planteen Recreation

Joe Niekro's Death Awakens Life
N nothing can make up for lost ground when death
intervenes. People who didn't get to know 22-
year major league pitcher Joe Niekro, people
such as myself, will forever miss out on that -
Niekro, a resident to Plant City
during the last 14 years, died
Oct. 27, of an aneurysm. He was
otherwise said to be in excellent
physical condition. His passing
was a shock to all that knew him.
In spite of his celebrity, with
22 years in the majors and 221
wins to his
,. : credit while
S ""' retirement from
baseball was a
.. quiet life that
Niekro sports passions
on golf, fishing and watching his
8-year-old son, J.J., play baseball.
J.J. plays for a Plant City Little
League team and his school1
team at St. Stephen Catholic
School in Valrico.
Niekro's funeral service, Oct.
31, was held at St. Stephen. The
church was said to be filled to
overflowing with family, friends
and acquaintance-s from all over
the count.l. loe's brother Phil,
also a former pitcher in the big
leagues, spoke fondly of his little
brother. Phil had a total of 318
career wins, mostly with the
Braves organizations in Mil-
waukee and Atlanta, and was
inducted into the Baseball Hall
of Fame in 1997.
Combined with Joe's wins,
the duo makes up the most
successful brother combina-
tion for pitchers in major
league history with 539 wins
Joe's oldest son, Lance, is
presently a first baseman for
the San Francisco Giants.
Joe and Phil played for the
same team twice in their long
pitching careers. They were on
the same Atlanta Braves team
in 1973-74, and with the'
Yankees in 1985.
The brothers worked together
again, following retirement
from the big leagues, when they
managed and coached the
Colorado Silver Bullets. The
Bullets were an all-women ,
baseball team sponsored by
Coors Brewing Company that
was organized in 1993.

The death of Plant City resident and former major league pitcher
Joe Niekro touched those who knew and admired him, such as
Laurie Gouthro, the international Softball Federation director of
competition. Gouthro knew Niekro and his wife Debbie when he
was the pitching coach for the Colorado Silver Bullets, a woman's
baseball team Gouthro played for in 1994.
Laurie Gouthro, the director
of competition for the Plant
Softball Federation, and a
former player and coach for the
Tampa Bay FireStix, which
played its home games at Plant
City Stadium, was a player with
that inaugural team. Laurie has
some fond memories of the
Silver Bullets and the team's
pitching coach, Joe Niekro.
"Both Phil and Joe had no
reason to involve themselves
with the team except their love
and appreciation of the game,"
Gouthro said. "But they were
committed to the mission of the
organization to inspire female
athletes to play the game of
baseball at all levels, from Little
League through professional
leagues. Phil and Joe worked
hard to encourage all forms of
organized baseball to accept
female athletes as players."
Gouthro was an All-American
player in 1989 at Florida
Community College in Jackson-
ville. She played softball and
completed earned a bachelor's
degree at the University of
South Florida in 1991. She was
one of 1,300 women across the
country that tried out for the
Silver Bullets in 1994.
"Being chosen as one of only
24 players to make the team was
amazing," Gouthro said. "But
working with Joe and Phil Niekro,
Phil's son John, Paul Blair and
other major league ballplayers
was something I'll never forget."

Chief In Shock Over New Equipment
Drawing his gun, Plant City police officer Mark
Pfister thought he had no choice but to shoot the
police chief. According to eye witnesses, Bill
McDaniel took a deep breath and seemed
resigned to what was about to happen. And what
happened next wasn't pretty.
Pfister, without provocation,
looked into the face of his
victim and shot the chief from
close range. The chief began to
seize; the initial hit didn't allow
time for a scream, only a grunt
as his body began to convulse.
McDaniel tried desperately to
fight the convulsions, but the
police chief fell to the ground
like a rag doll.
When it was over, the
convulsions and the pain
quickly subsided and the chief
rose to his feet, physically OK,
but psychologically afflicted
by the agony of the assault.
"Physically, I felt that I could
fight," said the chief, "but
mentally, I had no desire to
fight back; I just don't want to
go through that again ever."
It was imagined some 90
years ago as a futuristic
fantasy, an 8-volt electric rifle
for Tom Swift to sling over his
shoulder in Victor Appleton's
early 20th-century adventure
novels. Today, the Thomas A.
Swift Electric Rifle, known as
the Taser, is a highly
advanced, much sought-after
weapon that McDaniel
believes will make law
enforcement in Plant City
safer for his police officers and
the offenders they confront.
What's a Taser?
A Taser is like a handgun,
but instead of bullets, two
wires about 25 feet long are
fired. Tipped with metal
prongs, the wires attach to a
person's clothing or skin and
a 50,000 volt, five-second
electric jolt is delivered. The
shock causes a person's
muscles to contract, render-
ing the bad guy immobile so
that police can make the
arrest without injury to the
officer or the offender.
Unruly individuals who
physically challenge Plant City
cops may soon find themselves
in for the shock of their lives.
If your activities bring you
into conflict with the police
you won't be pleased to hear
that the police department has
purchased 74 Tasers, at $500 to
$800 each. The total cost of the
program, including holsters,
cartridges, training time and
materials, adds up to $85,000.
But don't be shocked.
Money for the department's
Taser gun program comes
from property seized from
illegal drug profits.
Isn't it fitting that the same
people who provided the
money to buy the Taser guns
are most likely the ones who
will be subdued by their own
For the law abiding it just
doesn't get any better.
The police department
began training police officers
this month on the use of the
Tasers and will have them on
the streets on Dec. 1.
Any Plant City police officer
who carries a Taser is required
by McDaniel to take a zap.
According to the chief, "it's
important for the officer to get
a taste of his own medicine."
Most of the time the only
force an officer uses is his or
her presence wearing the
badge and the uniform.
Words alone usually get
people to comply with a
police officer, so the pepper
spray, baton, Taser, and 9 mm
pistol stay on the belt.
But not always.
Words aren't enough some-
times; when physical
confrontation is unavoidable
and all other options are gone
it's a good idea that we give our
police officers a Taser to subdue
the uncontrollable aggressor.
Some think not.
Human rights groups and
other critics point to a number
of cases in which suspects died
in custody after being shocked

Some things shouldn't

Jean Redman smiled affection-
ately beside her late husband's
legislative desk, now at home in
the 1914 Community Center.
It is a modest laminated desk
that speaks of common sense
and frugality. I wonder about
the voices of current legislative
desks? Here at election time, I
think Mr. Redman's desk could
teach them a thing or two.

discovered the joys of having a
mother's helper right next
door. That was Jean Ann
Weaver, the daughter of long
time Plant City residents Jean

Jean Ann became second mom
to my kids, for she not only
watched out for them, but
grew to love them as if they
were her own. I don't know

SteinshouerBrings Hemingway Critics To Life
BRUTON MEMORIAL LIBRARY
ON A LITERARY TEAR
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
Betty Jean Steinshouer minced no words in
defense of the legendary American author Ernest
Hemingway following her performance of "On Hem-
ingway: Three Views" at the Bruton Memorial Library
on Oct. 5.
"He wasn't a very nice man," Steinshouer said
during a question-and-answer period following her
The one-woman show was viewed by about 40
people, most of whom knew Steinshouer from her
Chautauqua performance in Plant City back in 2003.
"Hemingway's offspring were proud of him as a
writer. But it is questionable if they had any pride in
him as a father," Steinshouer said. "He was jealous of
his friends and fellow writers. He turned on his
editor, who he sued for no good reason, losing two
years that could have been used for more productive
ventures. In the end, he broke all their hearts."
In her "On Hemingway: Three Views" perform-
ance, Steinshouer portrayed Hemingway's contem-
porary acquaintances, Willa Cather, Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings and Gertrude Stein.
Steinshouer developed her "Three Views" script in
1999. But she has been depicting Cather for more
than 17 years. She has done more than 3,500 per-
formances in 40 states and Canada.
Cather was a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, one
who was named among the five best in America by
William Faulkner, who also included Hemingway
and himself on that list.
As Rawlings, Steinshouer said Hemingway put real

writer. But it is questionable
if they had any pride in him
as a father."

people in his books; people who were known within
"He did some real damage to them. It was a
shame," the Rawlings character said.
Referring to Hemingway's fifth wife, Mary Welsh,
Rawlings said with a wicked little smile, "I'm not
sure, but I heard the present Mrs. Hemingway joins
her husband lying over herds of gazelle machine-
gunning into the herd. I'm not sure, but I heard
Steinshouer said she enjoys performing.
"I have managed to stay busy performing literary
characters for quite some time," she said. "I truly
love this work."
With her old standbys still in demand, Steinshouer
said she has new works coming to the stage for
"I am totally booked. But if I find a break in my
schedule I promise to come back to Plant City to
perform," Steinshouer told Anne Haywood, Bruton
Library director. "I love the people here."
Haywood has other performances schedule for
the library tour this fall.

The Rev. Garland Combs: Lebanon Baptist Church
When Garland Combs
meets with his preacher
friends to chitchat, they refer
to themselves as "The Sanhe-
drin." He's joking of course,
but the 78-year-old Baptist
minister has a quiet authority
about him born of much expe-
rience and prayer.
For more information about
Lebanon Baptist, 110 Forbes
Road, call 752-2006.
Q: Where were you born?
A: Chattanooga, Tenn., in
1928. I used to say I was
middle-aged but then my son
(Lee, 36) said, "Who do you
know that's 150?"
Q: Were you raised there?
A: Yes. I worked with my
dad in the foundry. An old
mule gave me a good
education; he taught me I
didn't want to be a farmer.
Then a foundry taught me I
didn't want to do that.
Q: Did you go to church?
A: My mother was a beauti-
ful lady. She was happy and
she liked fun. My dad was very
kind, patient and gentle. I
loved my dad. But we never
went to church together.
Later, I found my parents both
had been saved when they
Q: Who brought you to
A: I'd go with my wife (the
former Geneva Baker) when I
couldn't get out of it. Then I
was saved at 26. We've been
married 55 years.
Q: Did you go right into
A: No. I'm kind of a Jacob
because I'm always wrestling
with God. I didn't want to be a
preacher then I didn't want to
come to Florida. I stayed 20
years as pastor at Sheppard
Baptist Church in Chatta-
Q: Was your wife
A: Geneva I call her Sally -
has been perfect. I couldn't
have got a better wife if I'd
picked her myself. Even before
I was saved, God's hand was in
it. To be as kind and as loving
- she always supports me.
She's a great cook and she
never tries to step out front.
Q: When did you come to
A: We came to Lebanon to
fill in. Then they said, "Why
don't you drop that interim
title." It's been about 10 years.
Q: Characterize this
A: Loving and caring. It's
beginning to grow some. My
interest is trying to teach
people what God is teaching
me. I'd never be happy in a
large church. You've got 3,000
people, you've got 3,000 prob-
Q: Do you like Plant City?
A: I love tomatoes and I love
strawberries. When I moved
down here I thought I'd died
and gone to heaven. I grew up
in the country and I love the
Q: Do you have a favorite
A: "Great is thy faithful-
ness," "Amazing Grace." I love
the hymns. They tell the story
Q: What books are you
A: I've thrown away some
books. I call them, "Dr.
Sounding Brass." I take my
Greek, my lexicon, and my
King James Bible. More and
more I'm going back to just
reading the Word. The Bible is
really simple. God doesn't give
us a mystery. I've been taking
a fresh look and I'm amazed at
what I begin to see.
Q: Who's your Bible hero?
A: I guess Jacob (the Old
Testament character who
wrestled with God) because
we're so much alike. One I'd
like to meet is "The Demo-
niac" (a mentally disturbed
man Jesus healed). It's
going to be interesting to sit

Q: Do you watch television?
A: I guess there's none of
them I really watch. I usually
catch the news. I love sports
and I watch some of the games.
Q: Where do you like to eat?
A: We like Applebee's and
Sonny's (Real Pit Bar-B-Q). We
also go to Cracker Barrel and

FAMILY'S MILITARY BOND
COVERS OVER 60 YEARS
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
SHistory in any nation often combines
time, families and individuals together
in one continuous chain of events.
An example of that can be found here
in Plant City when you consider the
personal and military history of retired
Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Clarence
Barror, 72, is a retired minister now
living in Plant City. He was born in
: ., Toledo, Ohio, and briefly attended
: .Olivet College in Kankakee, Ill. He
-i' .-.. dropped out of Olivet, where he was
S' studying for the ministry, to help care
'for his ailing mother.
The Korean War was in full swing and
S. Uncle Sam had other plans for the
S : young man. Barror soon received his
'' draft papers.

around in the mud," Barror said. "I
..' signed up for a four-year hitch that
': eventually lasted more than 20 years.
Once I got in there I decided to makethe
most of it."
Following basic training at Great
".'. Lakes Naval Station, Barror married

13 mission to the moon.
"I was chief medical corpsman aboard
the Iwo Jima when we were notified of
our role in the Apollo mission," Barror
said. "Our captain, L.E. Kirkemo, knew
that I was an aspiring artist and he came
to me with an idea."
The ship's captain told Barror that the.
Apollo recovery assignment would put
the Iwo Jima in the spotlight to be seen
by people all over the world.
"He asked me if I could reproduce the
raising of the American flag on Iwo Jima
on the ship's interior hangar door,"
Barror said. "He had a copy of the
photograph in his quarters. I told him I
would do my best."
Barror painted a life-sized replica of
the flag raising using oil paints from the
ship's stores. Because of his extraordi-
nary effort, passing up shore leave to
finish before the ship sailed, Barror
received a special commendation from
the ship's captain.
But that wasn't the end of the story.

During a perilous flight filled with real-
life drama, the Apollo crew flew around
the moon and made a pinpoint landing
in the Pacific just four miles from the
waiting USS Iwo Jima. Because of the
serious nature of the physical stress
caused to the crew on the spacecraft,
there was no welcome aboard ceremony
and no world broadcast.
The Apollo crew fared well-and the
ship's crew was proud to be on hand to
bring them aboard, safe and sound. But
the painting of the flag-raising on Iwo
Jima, still protected and honored by the
ship's crew, remained unseen by the

medical adviser to the South Vietna-

Barror was then assigned to Harpers
Ferry, W.Va., where he spent his last year
in the Navy. He also served his first year
in church ministry at the Church of the
Nazarene. He was ordained to the
ministry in 1973 and served in that
capacity in five different churches during
the next 13 years, retired and moved
with his wife to Florida.

Rotary steps up for students
Students at Walden Lake Elementary School show off their new dictionaries courtesy of the Daybreak Rotary Club of Plant City and the Plant City Rotary Club.
The clubs donated dictionaries to 1,100 fifth-grade public school students in the area. Along with traditional definitions, the dictionaries also include

volts traveling through
Plant City police Tasers
come with a computer chip
that records when and how
many times the weapon has
been deployed as well as a
video camera that "starts
shooting" when the Taser is
triggered. This allows the
department to review any
complaints suspects might
raise concerning misuse and
excessive firing of the
Tasers, a good idea?
Police say yes; some
communities say no.
Amnesty International is
calling for a moratorium on
the use of all electroo
muscular weapons," saying
bad cops can abuse them
and torture their victims.
In an effort to prevent this
from occurring, Amnesty
International might want to
consider the following:
1. Do not threaten or point
a gun or other weapon at a
police officer ever.
2. Do what the police
officer tells you to do. When
you are told to do it.
3. Refer to 1 and 2 and you
will not be Tasered.
For others who cringe at
the thought of subduing an
out-of-control bad guy with
a 50,000-volt electrical jolt
from a Taser consider the
alternatives: Does the use of
a club sound better? How
about the release of a 15-fool
cloud of pepper spray that
might harm innocent
bystanders, or how about a 9
mm pistol and deadly force?
McDaniel should be
applauded for bringing the
Taser to Plant City. It gives
police a way of resolving
potentially deadly situations
with the least amount of
injury or force to the police
officer and to the offender.

Sliver and pancreas was available for transplant! We went through
so many mixed emotions, excited yet very nervous about what was to come.
Your PaPa called the radio station and requested a song for you, "I hope you

Dicks and Holland agree that the Jackobury
concept could be repeated on the property as
an annual event.

A: The Lord said, "I'm

go and return to my place
until they (Israel) acknow-

my face ... Come and let us
return unto the Lord ... and he
will bind us up ... and we shall

by Timothy Haught,
One advantage of funeral preplanning is
the opportunity to compare prices and
services. Doing so contrasts sharplywith
a situation in which family members
feel forced to make decisions when a
loved one dies without preplanning.
While preplanning allows for budgetary
considerations, it is important not to
base decisions on cost alone. As any
consumer knows, cost does not always
reflect the full measure of the people and
services that stand behind the product.
Trusworthiness, sensitivity, support,
experience, and quality all count for
much as well. With this in mind, it is
best to visit with a funeral director in
order to gauge the human connection
that will best serve you at this most
human of moments.
It is helpful to bring along certain
information when prearranging a funeral.
Information such as: social security
number, veteran discharge/benefit
papers, a list of all surviving relatives,
birth date, organization memberships,
and basic information to be used on the
death certificate and in the newspaper
obituary. The more paperwork that is
complete ahead of time will help simplify
things when actual death occurs. At
HAUGHT FUNERAL HOME we can
help you make the arrangements that
you want. for more information please

at 708 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd.,

The Day Sam Walton Came To Plant City
RETAIL GIANT'S VISIT
By LINDA CHION KENNEY
David Storck knows a thing
or two about Wal-Mart.
In fact, he knows about 25
years worth of things, having
retired from the company
after a stint that included
opening the Wal-Mart on
Bloomingdale Avenue 20
years ago, on Sept. 27, 1986.
Brandon was a much differ-
ent place back then, but to
Storck, who started with Wal-
Mart in Salem, Ill., coming to
Brandon was like moving "to
"I came from a town of 350
people, Farina, Illinois, where
I had to drive 25 miles to get to
work in Salem, a town of about
5,000," he said. "That was a
big town in southern Illinois.
Moving down here, to Bran-
don, was like moving to the
city, even back then."
Storck, who retired this
year, said he remembers
working as the store manager
in Plant City, back when Wal-

now Southern Hospitality on
James L. Redman Parkway.
The store was about 66,000
"Sam Walton (Wal-Mart's
founder) came to Plant City in
1991," he said. "He told me,
'This is the best Wal-Mart I've
been to,' and I'm sure he said
that to all of them he visited.
He asked me, 'Is this store big
enough?' And I said, 'No, we
need more space.' He got on
the phone and said, 'I'm down
here in Plant City. We need a
new barn down here, this one

Plant City got its "new
barn," a Wal-Mart at 2602 Jim
Redman Parkway, which
opened at about 127,000
square feet, only to be later
remodeled into a superstore
of about 203,000 square feet,
Storck said. The original Plant
City store was the first Wal-
Mart store in Florida. Two
other Wal-Marts had opened
before the one in Plant City,
but they were buildings con-

career at a gas station, restau-

"For people who worked in
country stores like myself it
was a whole new ballgame,"
he said. "We did a tremendous
volume at Wal-Mart, but I've

twice as much business in one
day that we did in the old store
in a week."

If you suffer from frequent headaches
and are taking pain relievers more
than 2-3days a week, you may be ex-
periencing rebound headaches. The
very medications you are taking to
relieve the pain may actually be caus-
ing more pain. Rebound headaches
occur because your body adapts to the
medication. Using too much inhibits
your brain's ability to sense and re-
spond to pain. As the drug wears off,
the pain worsens and you take more
medication perpetuating the cycle.
If you think you are having rebound
headaches, see your doctor for help in
breaking the cycle of pain.

Last week in beating Winter Haven 14-6, Powell

The Braves certainly have some notable victories.
Not only did the Braves give Winter Haven its only

same service to Kathleen. Even though Lake Gib-

ing up one's pace. But for the
Durant boys cross country
team at Friday's Class 4A-
Region 2 meet it was some-
thing else a Web site.
"We were looking at run-
ners.com, and they had us
ranked ninth in our region.
They had us ranked behind a
couple of teams we had just
finished ahead of at districts.
That jazzed our guys up," said
Durant coach Bryce Pre-
Did it ever. Durant improved
its times all around and in doing
so is headed to the state meet
for the second year in a row.
The Cougars finished fourth at
the regional meet, held at Ed
Radice Park in north Tampa.
The result was quite
remarkable considering the
Cougars were fifth at districts,
and not only had to face the
four squads that beat them
there but also the best teams
from east Central Florida as
All four placing Cougars fin-
ished in the top 30 out of 101
runners, paced by senior
Kevin Jones who came in
fourth with a three-mile time
of 16:51. Melbourne's Brian
Atkinson won the race with a
16:21 and his team was the
regional runner-up behind
Sickles. Bayside High from
Palm Bay was third, then
Durant, Vero Beach and St.
Pete High concluded the list of
teams that qualified for this
weekend's Class 4A race in
Sophomore John Mitchell
was 15th, Khemaron Kelly
20th and Daniel Barousse ran
a career-best 17:59 to give
Durant another good result.
Predmore says the goal at
this week's meet is to finish in
the top 12, which would be a
good jump over last year's
"The end caught a lot of
people last year, especially us.
You finish with a long, gradual
hill," Predmore said. "Then
there was the intimidation
factor, being there for the first
time. We get out of our van
with guys wearing mis-
matched uniforms. You look
over and see teams getting out
of chartered buses dudded up
in Nike, head to toe."...
SWIMMING: The state
swimming and diving meet
was last week and all three of
our local participants scored
big. Durant diving duo Kaylee
Doback and Chris Plante each
came in the top 10. Plante was
fourth in the boys competition
while Doback, like Plante a
junior, was eighth among the
Raiders junior Stephanie
Barker reached her goal in the
100 butterfly, making it to the
championship final where she
came in eighth. Barker also
qualified for the Class 3A meet,
held in Fort Lauderdale, in the
50-yard freestyle where she
reached the consolation

ALL OF US OWE A
GREAT DEBT TO THE MEN
AND WOMEN WHO SERVED,
FOUGHT AND DIED IN THE
ARMED FORCES OF OUR
COUNTRY SINCE THE BIRTH
OF OUR NATION
I believe that as Americans we owe a great debt to the men
and women of our armed forces who have served tirelessly,
fought relentlessly and who gave of their own lives selflessly
for the freedoms you and I enjoy every day.
Now we have an opportunity to erect a monument that would
honor and express our gratitude for the great many
sacrifices these men and women have made for us, and at
the same time, help to educate generations to come. We
have a chance to show that our community has not and will
never forget that freedom comes at a price. We also honor
those family, friends and neighbors who have paid that price.
The Veterans Monument Committee of Plant City has
engaged the services of world renowned sculptor and Plant
City native Harrison Covington to create a 20' sculpture to
honor and commemorate these veterans. Mr. Covington,
a World War II flying ace, is graciously waiving his fee.
However, the cost to construct, transport and install the
monument will be approximately $500,000. The finished
work of art will appropriately be placed in front of our City
Hall. The target date for completion is November 11, 2007.
With great admiration for our veterans, Haught Funeral
Home is proud to be a supporting sponsor of this project for
our community. If you would also like to be a supporter and
a part of this monumental occasion, please join the effort by
sending a tax deductible check made payable and mailed to:
Plant City Armed Forces Memorial Foundation
110 West Reynolds St., Suite 204
Plant City, FL 33563
For further information, you may contact
Jennifer Closshey at 813-754-5350.
