Country, Rock Stars In Festival Lineup


PATRONS CAN NOW PRINT
TICKETS AT HOME
StaffReport
Country and rock 'n' roll stars
will share the stage at next year's
Florida Strawberry Festival.
In one of its most diverse line-
ups in years, rock stars like Hootie
& The Blowfish and Little Richard
will share top billing with country


music legends like Kenny Rogers
and Randy Travis.
The festival is planned for
March 1-11.
"It's one of the best and most
varied we have ever had," said
Joe Newsome, chairman of the
festival entertainment commit-
tee. "There will be something
for everyone."
But while entertainers like
LeAnn Rimes, Clint Black and
Martina McBride will draw a


crowd, festival organizers are
holding off on announcing
another big name until Dec. 11.
Officials would only say that she
is a "top female country artist"
who has never performed at the
festival.
The festival, which drew more
than 600,000 visitors last year and
is in its 72nd year, will also
include parades, entertainment,
a midway, a feast of fun food, and
agricultural and livestock shows.


Getting tickets to the festival
will also be easier this year:
patrons will be able to print tick-
ets at home.
Gate admission, concert tick-
ets and strawberry shortcake
tickets can be ordered and
printed with a home computer
and printer.
Tickets can still be bought at
the walk-up ticket window at the

"Today, Megan has been

Jesus is there with Megan today,"
said the Rev. Ron Churchill.
He visited Megan Carpenter
many times during her five-year
battle with cancer.
"There were surgeries, seizures
and tests that went on and on
and on. Most people give up and
a few months or a year," Chur-
chill said. "She never gave up.
She always kept her chin up. She
fought courageously. Jesus gave
her that strength."

Exploring 'Perceptions Of Paradise' NEWS DIGEST


PART OF LIBRARY SERIES
ON STATE'S HISTORY

Staff Report
Author Mallory O'Connor
will explore "Perceptions of
Paradise: The Visual Mythol-
ogy of Florida As Eden" at
Bruton Memorial Library, 302
McLendon St., Nov. 30 at 7
p.m.
The event is part of a series
of library lectures on the
changing face of Florida.
"Right Before Our Eyes:
Florida's Changing Landscape
in Fact, Fiction and Song"
explores some of the changes
happening in the state and
will run through next year.
The series is a partnership
between the Florida Humani-


ties Council and the Friends of
the Bruton Memorial Library.
O'Connor's talk will focus
on perceptions of Florida
since the first Europeans
arrived in the 16th century
when the state was "viewed as
a mythic place, a land of
dreams, an earthly Garden of
Eden," according to a release
announcing the lecture.
"What are the historical and
cultural assumptions behind
the myth of Florida-as-Eden?
And what role have artists
played in perpetuating the
image of Florida as a land so
beautiful and so blessed that
it seems too good to be true?
O'Connor looks at how art
transmits culture and how
our perception of 'reality' can
be shaped by fantasy and
imagination."


Upcoming lectures in the
series at Bruton Memorial
include:
Maurice O'Sullivan on
"Reinventing Paradise: Writ-
ers in the Sunshine State," Jan.
4, 7p.m.
Dale Crider on "Where
Have all the Flowers Gone,"
Feb. 8, 7 p.m.
Bill Belleville on "Loosing
it all to Sprawl; How Progress
Ate My Cracker Landscape,"
March 15, 7 p.m.
Randy Wayne White on
"An Evening With Doc Ford,"
March 30. Time to be
announced.
All the programs will be in
the Mary Noel Moody Com-
munity Room.

wood, 757-9215.

'SERVICE LEARNING'

PROJECT AT HCC

Staff Report
More than 150 migrant
worker families had an early
Thanksgiving treat at the Plant
City campus of Hillsborough
Community College Nov. 19.
Students from Johana
Melendez's microbiology class
teamed up with Migrant Min-
istries, a faith-based charity
from Carrollwood, for the
event. The students provided
classes on food safety for
migrant families, while the
charity provided Thanksgiving
baskets complete with a frozen
turkey and all the trimmings.
With the microbiology stu-
dents required to perform 10
hours of community service to
earn their degree, Melendez
saw the project as a way to
help and learn at the same
time.


"This is an opportunity for
the students to use what they
have learned in the class-
room," Melendez said.
The teacher also requires
her students keep a journal of
the experience. "I want them
to think and reflect on what
they have learned here," she
said.
"Rewarding" might be the
headline on Linda Horst's
journal.
"I loved it," said the nursing
student. Microbiology is a
required courses for nurses
and many of the students in
Melendez's class plan to work
in the field.
"It was an opportunity to
give back," Horst said. "It
makes me realize what bles-
sings we have."
Fellow student Gladys Bran-
son agreed.
"It's all about giving back to
the community," Branson
said. "It leaves you with a good
feeling inside."


Ajibola Loye's wife, a nurs-
ing student in the class, asked
him to come along to event.
"What they are doing here
today is very important," Loye
said. "If you can educate
people about preventing dis-
eases in the first place-it has a
great impact."
This was the first such
service-learning project at
HCC, said Melendez, who has
plans for similar projects in
the near future.
Service learning is a teach-
ing and learning strategy that
integrates community service
with education and reflection,
Melendez said.
"Our students and Migrant
Ministries have worked hard
to make this happen," said
Melendez, who's hoping it
serves as an "example for
other students and people in
our community to step out
and help develop and educate
communities."

with courage and dignity.
"Megan knew she was going to die, but her faith
helped her deal with death incredibly well," he said.
"Let Megan's life be an inspiration."
Never complaining, Megan instead always
looked for the positives in life, said the Rev. Tommy
Warnock, who officiated the service with Chur-
chill.
"When she first heard she had cancer, the doc-
tors didn't give her much of a prospect, but she
always showed great character, conviction and
faith," Warnock said.
"More than anything else, she had a faith that
was real and genuine and that effected us all,"
Warnock said. "She was truly an angelic spirit and a
gift from God. She is at home with Jesus this morn-
ing."
Diane Sparkman, a friend of the family, and the
Carpenters were neighbors at Lake Nellie, where
both families owned a beach house.
Considering her age and what she was going
through with operations and treatments, "Megan
had the most fantastic outlook," Sparkman said.
"She always had a smile on her face. She was
determined she was going to make the best of
things. It is truly a loss. With her outlook on life, she
could have done anything she wanted. She was an
amazing little girl."
Sparkman said it good to see so many young
people at the service.
"It was a wonderful service and very heart-warm-
ing to see all the young people. Megan had a close-
knit group of friends that stood by here throughout
this whole thing."
Megan Carpenter is survived by her parents,
Chip and Dana; her brother, Chad; her grandpar-
ents, Bud and Patti Rentz and Carl and Marilyn
Carpenter; her aunts, Kim and Amy; her uncles,
Steve and Jay and her cousins, Lindsey, Lauren,
Adam, Matt, Connor, Casey and Ben.
The family asks that any donations be made in
her memory to St. Joseph's Hospital Tampa Foun-
dation, care of the Children's Cancer Research
Group.


FUNDRAISING DRIVE

RAISES $48,000

Staff Report
Megan Carpenter was one of
three local teens who inspired a
recent fundraising drive champi-
oned by Bill Heard Chevrolet and
the Plant City Rotary. All three
girls Carpenter, Alexandria Pre-
scott, 16, and BrandiRedmond, 15
attended Plant City High School.
Prescott suffers from a genetic
neuromuscular disease that
attacks DNA. Redmond was diag-
nosed with a former of cancer -
Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier
this year.
A Beef O' Brady's poker run and
a mini-golf tournament and
window ad sales at Bill Heard
helped raise $48,000 for the fami-
lies of the three teens.
Their illnesses have been hard
on their families, said Chris Pre-
vatt, public relations manager for
Bill Heard Chevrolet, who is head-
ing up the effort.
"Megan's someone everyone
should be inspired by," said Chris
Prevatt, the public relations
manager for Bill Heard Chevrolet
who organized the fundraising
effort. "Her parents are very strong
people," said Prevatt, a father of
two. "I know I couldn't handle
what they are going through. Per-
sonally, I think they should write a
book. It would be inspirational."
Prevatt said the fundraising
effort pulled the whole city

together.
"We had 300 to 400 volunteers
here (for the Nov. 12 mini-golf tour-
nament)," he said. "People were
here from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. No one
asked to go home. The way these
children pulled this town together
is a sensation in itself."
Cheerleaders, football and base-
ball players from Plant City and
Durant high schools all turned out
to help. "There is no way we could
thank every individual or business
involved with a letter without miss-
ing someone, so the best way to do
this is to thank whole community of
Plant City for one most heartfelt
fundraising efforts ever," Prevatt
said.

OFFERING YOUR
CONDOLENCES
People often ask what is appropriate
to say to a grieving friend or family
member. The short answer is: offer
your condolences with a simple "I am
so sorry" and little else. The truth of
the matter is that this is one of those
times when words truly cannot measure
up to the experience of the moment.
Tears, clasped hands, and hugs often
say much more than words can convey
at this emotional time. If anything, feel
free to offer a fond remembrance of the
departed and/or convey how much he
or she meant to you. Conversely, avoid
saying that you know how the grieving
person feels. You do not until he or she
feels comfortable enough to tell you.

Comforting a grieving friend entails
offering support and allowing him or
her to go through whatever he or she is
feeling. Be patient with your friend's
changeable moods. It's normal for
someone who is grieving to alternate
between anger, sadness, numbness and
acceptance. At HAUGHT FUNERAL
HOME our experienced staff is available
to answer questions and assist with
funeral arrangements, including pre-
planning. Located at 708 Dr. Martin
Luther King Blvd. W, we can be reached
at 813-717-9300.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Thank you, from

Dana Carpenter

As many of you already know, our
precious angel, Megan Carpenter, landed
safely home in the arms of Jesus on
Wednesday, Nov. 15. She truly amazed us
and everyone that came in contact with her
with her strength and courage these past
five and a half years in the way she handled
her cancer with such faith, courage and
positive outlook. She put 100 percent of her
love and faith into God, and he not only
carried her and gave her strength, but gave
each of us strength as well.
There are so many people to thank that
have lifted us up and carried us through not
only this past week, but the last few years
also.
I have to start by thanking first my family.
God truly blessed me with not only Megan
but my son, Chad. He was truly Megan's
guardian angel, my rock and I am so proud
of him. I am also blessed to have my mother
"Mema", my dad "Granddaddy," Sissy
"Kim," Steve, Jay and their families, and of
course Jamie Boston, Chad's girlfriend.
They have given me strength and support
so selflessly and I love them dearly. I thank
the Carpenter family for their love and
prayers. I will never forget all of my friends
and relatives (there are way too many to
list), Megan's close and sweet friends that
constantly called, sent text messages and
came by the hospital to see her, Dr. John
Saranko and the nurses of 3 North and the
administration of St. Joseph Hospital in
Plant City who took such awesome care of
Megan and my family. A special thanks to
Dr. Cameron Tebbi and his staff at St.
Joseph Hospital in Tampa who cared for
and loved M egan in the most amazing way
over the past five and a half years.
My love especially goes out to Megan's
youth minister, Rev. Tommy Warnock, who
always said such sweet and uplifting prayers
of encouragement and who did an out-
standing job of performing the funeral
service in Megan's honor. In addition, I also
thank our pastor, Dr. Ron Churchill, who
also did such an awesome job at Megan's
service and to our extended church family,
including the hundreds of surrounding
churches who often prayed for Megan. Tim
Haught of Haught Funeral Home showed so


much compassion to my family during this
time and I am so thankful.
A special thanks to all of those who made
Megan's service so special, especially her
cousin, Casey Stidham, whose musical
talent is a gift from God; Pete Battaglia, for
singing so beautifully at the service; and to
"Megan's Boys," who served as pallbearers.
We will never forget the support of our
town and this community, especially Chris
Prevatt and the folks at Bill Heard Chevro-
let, as well as the Plant City Rotary Club and
all of the many sponsors at the fundraiser
on Megan's behalf.
A special thanks to my boss, Rick Hunter,
and my coworkers, who have supported me
and stood beside me over these many years.
I also want to thank everyone for the
delicious food, the hundreds of cards and
phone calls, the visits, the beautiful flowers
and the gifts of love and of course the
prayers that so many prayed on Megan's
behalf. I love and appreciate all of Megan's
prayer warriors. It brings me such comfort
and peace knowing that God has truly
answered our prayer and Megan is now
completely healed and perfect and is filled
with nothing but happiness and love in the
arms of Jesus. Thanks to everyone that
knew and loved my Megan. May God bless
you always.

In Megan's honor,
Dana Carpenter


Hurricane brewing

over Gator tale
Re: Jerry Lofstrom's column "We Are The
Boys From Ole' Florida," Nov. 16 issue.
I live in Mulberry and visit Plant City
often. Wheri there, I ahays pick up a copy
of The Courier. And last week, as always, I
went and got my copy. Upon reading, I saw
Jerry Lofstrom's article and was floored.
Jerry is a great writer and I enjoy reading
his articles, but last week's article made me
sick to my stomach; couldn't-eat or sleep.
He has disrupted my life for the rest of this
football season.
His suggestion that Gator stadium and
its fans are the best was over the line and a
slap in the face to Miami Hurricane
football and their fans worldwide.
Wake up and smell the espresso, Jerry!


Nominate Your

Person of the Year

The Courier is looking for nomi-
nations for a "Person of the Year"
avawrd. Nominees, can be indcliduals
or small groups who are making a dif-
ference in Plant City: those who have
made a long-term commitment to
improving the quality of life in the
community.
All nominations are welcome.
An awards committee will make the
final decision on a winner.
The recipient will be announced
next month in The Courier.
Send your nominations by fax, 865-
4449. e-mail, kbrady@mediagenera-
l.com or mail, Person of the Year. The
Courier, 101 N. Wheeler St., Plant Ciry,
Fla. 33563.

I would like to invite Jerry to accompany
me to enjoy the great college football spirit
and festivities that exist about 325 miles
farther south in Miami; where "Gator tail"
is served as a delicacy in the parking lot
before it's eaten on the field.
My only solace here is to keep in mind
that a Yankee from Minnesota doesn't
know squat about football in the South.
Go 'Canes!

Best friend is back

I am writing to thank my sisters -
Carolyn Francis, Carol Brooks and Pat and
Libby Mitchell for their relentless efforts
in placing more than 300 fliers within the
community to find my best friend. I want
to especially thank Josh James and his
fiancee for rescuing my friend, taking very
good care of him for almost eight weeks
and returning him to me after seeing one
of the fliers. I should mention my best
friend, Oscar, is 5 years old, weighs 13
pounds and is a red dachshund dog. My
grandchildren and I are so very grateful to
have him home safe and sound!

We Need To Raise The Bar On Candidates


Classifieds: 865-4437 n Jan. 14, 1950, Dwight Eisenhower attached to
53 his diaries a farewell editorial written by the
, Sunbelt Newspapers 2006 publisher of the original New York Sun
Sunbelt Newspapers is a
\ledia General publication newspaper, now defunct. He did so because one
paragraph summarized his own beliefs.

Here is the relevant part of
that paragraph:
"... [The newspaper] has
supported constitutional
government, sound money,


reasonable protection ior
American industry, economy in
public expenditures, preserva-
tion of the rights and responsi-
bilities of the several states, free
enterprise, good citizenship,
equality before the law, and
has upheld all the finer Ameri-
can traditions. It has opposed
indecency and rascality, public
and private. It has fought
Populism, Socialism, Com-
munism, governmental
extravagance, the encroach-
ment of bureaucracy and that
fo9rm of governmental pater-
nalism which eats into the
marrow of private initiative and
industry."


CHARLEY
REESE
Columnist


Eisenhower wrote in his
diary: "These are the things in
which I believe. If a paper that
has preached these things
cannot secure enough support
to operate successfully, the.


question is, 'Are these princi-
ples, as guides to American
action, now to go into the
discard?' If they are, I am
wasting a lot of energy but I'll
go down fighting."
Eisenhower's beliefs were
not manufactured, as so many
are today, for campaign
purposes. They had evolved
over his lifetime and were
rooted in the ethics and beliefs
of parents and neighbors in
Kansas. Like his predecessor,
Harry Truman, Eisenhower was
scrupulously honest. He
worked like a dog for the sake
of the only two passions of his
life his family and his coun-
try.
You can find a copy of "The
Eisenhower Diaries" at your
library. The book is edited by
Robert Ferrell. It's a good book
for just browsing. These are not
the diaries of a self-concerned
neurotic. Much of them are like
unit diaries describing what-
ever military duties he was
performing, but the insights
into famous people, including
Eisenhower himself, are


fascinating.
He had a low opinion, for
example, of the movie business
and remarked that after
decades of a virtual monopoly,
the movies were up against it
with the advent of television. If
you have to be bored to death,
he remarks, you might as well
stay home and be bored by
television rather than go out
and buy a ticket. He had an
equally low opinion of the
press because of what he
described as inaccurate
reporting.
I'm bringing up Eisenhower
because now that the midterm
elections are over, the
presidential race for 2008
begins. All too often, Americans
will compare candidates with
their contemporaries. People
will say, for example, that Bush
is better than Gore or that
Clinton was better than Nixon,'
etc.
What we should do when
faced with candidates for the
presidency is compare them

John Griffin's legacy to the club he founded is immortalized in
the main lobby of the South Waller Street building.


Club Celebrates Legacy


Of John Griffin M


'THE KIDS WERE
EVERYTHING TO HIM'
Staff Report
John Griffin died two years
ago, but he was surely smiling
last Thursday.
The former director of the
West Side Plant City Boys &
Girls Club, Griffin spent his life
helping children, said his wife,
Nadine. And the Thanksgiving
feast at the club was always
one his favorite events.
Griffin helped found the
club in 1999. He was the club
director for five years until his
death in 2004.
"Kids were everything to
him," said Nadine as she
helped serve up a turkey and
ham dinner to more than 200
people.
Griffin's legacy lives on


every day at the Boys and Girls
Club at 901 S. Waller St. said
Sharon Moody.
"The club was his passion,"
said Moody, the current direc-
tor of West Plant City Boys and
Girls Club. "He was just a great
family man and all around
person."
Moody presented an award
in honor of Griffin to his family
before the dinner.
"He was brother to me, but
also a father figure to many,"
said Barbara Dixon, Griffin's
sister. "John was always look-
ing out for the future of chil-
dren. He put a lot of effort into
starting the club because he
wanted a safe place for chil-
dren to go."
A football coach at Plant
City High School for many
years, Griffin was "coach" to
many of the youngsters during


the early years of the Boys &
Girls Club.
"There were times when
some kids couldn't afford the
physical to play football or
couldn't come up with the
money to pay for a uniform,
but John would always come
up with the money for them,"
Dixon recalls. "John always
saw the good in a children,
never the bad."


Griffin's reputation went
beyond the walls of the club,
said Mayor John Dicks, also on
hand for the dinner.
"He was devoted to the chil-
dren of the community and
did a terrific job of always
encouraging them to be
productive members of soci-
ety," Dicks said.

Above, Sharon Moody,
director of West Plant City
Boys and Girls Club, presents
an award to the Griffin family
at a Thanksgiving dinner in
honor of John Griffin, a former
club director. Barbara Dixon,
John Griffin's sister, is accept-
ing the award. At left, The Rev.
Norm Blanton, the director of
Somebody Cares Plant City,
offered a prayer of thanks
before the meal.
and John Jr. always heard
those words of encourage-
ment growing up, said Grif-
fin's son, John Jr.
"There was a college foot-
ball game between Syracuse
and Florida in the Orange
Bowl that I really wanted to go
to tickets were impossible to
find." His dad came up with
the tickets. "He never told me
how he got those tickets."

ISF Pursues Olympic Reinstatement


FORMER IOC PRESIDENT
OFFERS SUPPORT
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
Officials at the Plant City-
based International Softball
Federation have established a
task force, headed by former
International Olympic Com-
mittee President Juan Antonio
Samaranch, to seek the rein-
statement of women's fast-
pitch softball as a participating
Olympic sport.
"Samaranch has agreed to
serve as the honorary chair-
person of the ISF Strategic
Task Force," said ISF Presi-
dent Don Porter. "Mr. Sama-
ranch is still influential in the
IOC and will play a large part
in reinstating women's fast-
pitch softball as a participat-
ing Olympic sport."
Women's fast-pitch softball
will be played at the 2008
Olympics in Beijing, China.
However, the sport was
removed by current IOC Presi-
dent Jacque Rogge from the
2012 London Olympics.
In July 2005, a secret ballot
produced a simple majority,
eliminating softball as a par-


ticipating sport by a single
vote of the 116-member IOC.
Unless a status change is
made, softball will not be
played again as an Olympic
sport.
Samaranch was the IOC's
seventh president, from 1980-
2001. Softball was identified as
a possible Olympic sport in
1991, and introduced as a new
Olympic sport in 1996, where
it debuted at the Atlanta
Games.
The ISF task force's aim will
be to regain Olympic status for
the sport when the IOC meets
in Denmark in 2009.
"Obviously we continue to
feel very strongly that softball
should still be an Olympic
sport beyond the 2008
Games," Porter said. "The task
force is going to be made up of
people that will be able to help
us convince the IOC of that.
Having the former IOC presi-
dent as honorary chairperson
can only bolster the efforts of
the group."
The announcement of
Samaranch as the honorary
chairman is the first name
associated with the task force
to be made public. The task
force was created during the
ISF Executive Council meeting


in Beijing during the recent
women's world champion-
ship. Porter said he is finaliz-
ing the makeup of the group
and that an announcement on
the other will be made in
December.
Samaranch was among the
first three people to receive
the ISF Medal of Honor in
1990. The honor has only been
bestowed on six people since.
In July 2001, he was elected
Honorary (IOC) President for
Life, Porter said.
Porter, who believes that his
sport contributes to
international goodwill, is
incensed that Rogge would
undermine the efforts of the
International Softball
Federation.
"Rogge has wanted to elimi-
nate softball ever since he
became IOC president," Por-
ter said. "During a 2001 meet-
ing in Mexico City, Rogge
made it clear he wanted to
eliminate softball. But at that
time he was defeated. He
wants rugby, a sport he played
for one year in college, to be
recognized as an Olympic
sport. He thought that remov-
ing softball would open the
door for rugby. The IOC has
not supported his intention.


GEORGE H. NEWMAN/Staff photo
Don Porter, the president of the Plant City-based International
Softball Federation, recently announced the selection of a
former international Olympic Committee president to support
the ISF effort for reinstatement women's fast-pitch softball as a
participating sport in the Olympic Games following the 2008
Games in Beijing, China.


"Rugby has been defeated as
a Olympic sport at several
meetings. But on July 8, in
Singapore, Rogge finally got his
way by eliminating women's
softball from the 2112 Games."
Porter hopes that Sama-


ranch and the task force can
make a difference.
The ISF is softball's world
governing body. Porter said
that millions of amateur ath-
letes participate in the sport
worldwide.

IN THE SPIRIT


The Rev. Bob Franklin and wife Darlene had five daughters in a
row before having three boys.

Rev. Bob Franklin:

Covenant Bible Church


Bob Franklin is a humble
man who sees himself more as
pastor and counselor than
spiritual luminary.
His church owns no build-
ing, yet the congregation
maintains a quiet presence in
the community that is less
unnoticed than it is under-
stated. For more information
about the church, call 754-
4920 or visit www.covenantbi-
ble.com.
Q: Today's Thanksgiving:
What are you thankful for?
A: Salvation. My wife. My
family. If I'm right with my
Lord, my wife and my kids ...
then so much of what life's all
about is right there.
Q: What makes Covenant
Bible Church unique?
A: We have a unique contri-
bution and our focus is rela-
tionships. Marriage, family,
and a personal walk with God.
My personal walk with God is
the hub of everything. We
never set out to start a home-

80 percent of our families

. Q: Is the low-profile delib-
erate?
A: I've never been moti-
vated to try to impress others
in terms of trying to be some-
body. Being real with people is
more important than what we
say. It's about ministering
faithfully to the people God
brings to us. We're just trying
to make a difference for
Christ.
Q: Would you like a build-
ing?
A: Ultimately, yes. In fact
we're looking at an opportu-
nity right now. If you write
this article and people feel
compelled to give us money
for a building then that would
be great.
Q: Where were you raised?
A: Born (1953) and raised in
Plant City. We lived in walking

year's effort at the Plant City Stadium grounds, which
attracted approximately 10,000 patrons. The Nov. 18 event
included live musical entertainment, including Buck Hummer
and the Pickups, more than 80 amateur and professional
barbecue venders, kid's games, a sports tent and, of course, a
lot of country cooking. Below: Danny Coton presents the

My dad was born here in 1924.
My grandfather, Robert Jeffer-
son Franklin, was born here in
1890. I also have the marriage
license from my great-grand-
father's 1878 marriage in
Tampa.
Q: When did God call you?
A: When I was little my
mom and dad said they prayed
for a son and promised to ded-
icate me to the Lord. Some-
how I had this sense that God
had a special purpose for my
life. I measured the decisions I
made against that sense of
purpose. I became a Christian
at 7 and surrendered to the
Gospel ministry at 15.
Q: Was the decision easy?
A: I agonized over it because
I didn't think preachers could
hunt and fish. Dr. Roy Rey-
nolds was my pastor and
mentor and he took me under
his wing.
Q: Outline your schooling
A: Plant City High, Univer-
sity of South Florida (bache-
lors degree in accounting)

in Memphis, Tenn. I did well
in school and I loved Greek
and Hebrew.
Q: We hear you have a large
family?
A: I married Darlene
Macuch in 1981, when I was
almost 28. We had five daugh-
ters in a row then three boys.

Q: Where have you pas-
tored?
A: My first call was First
Baptist Church of Samoset,
Bradenton. Then I served
some interim positions
around Memphis before
moving back to Plant City in
1985.
Q: Why Plant City?
A: I wasn't sure about my
direction so I worked with my
dad. I was 32 with a wife and
three children and I felt a little
discouraged. God taught me
to come to the place where I

didn't worry about what
others thought about me.
Q: Did you still minister?
A: I helped out at Eastside, I
did some interim work, and I
helped a split church in Lake-
land get back together again.
Then my wife said, "I think
God wants you to start a Bible
Church in Plant City."
Q: What happened?
A: Several families agreed

dy's restaurant May 1989.

heart that's free to love God
and others. The Bible says "Let
the peace of God rule in your
heart." (Colossians 3:15) and
"The peace of God which
passes all understanding will
keep your heart and mind in
Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:
7)
Q: What is your favorite
scripture?
A: My life-verse is 2 Chroni-
cles 16:9. "For the eyes of the
Lord range throughout the
earth to strengthen those
whose hearts are fully com-
mitted to him." Early in my
Christian life I was perform-
ance-oriented. I was trying to
earn God's love and accep-
tance. Then God showed me
he loves me because of Jesus.
He accepted me because of
Christ not because of anything
I could do. A heart that's per-
fect is a heart of peace and
only God can give me a heart
of peace. My responsibility is
to say "God, here's my heart."
Q: What do you do for fun?
A: Most of my free time is
committed to being with the

boys and family activities that
surround community football.
I like to fish and I enjoy the
woods, and I do a little wood-
working.

Q: What are you reading?
A: I just read Henry Blacka-
by's book on spiritual leader-
ship. That really touched my
life. Now I'm reading "The
Present Future: Six tough
questions for the church" by
Reggie McNeal.

Q: What's the big challenge
for Plant City?
A: Complacency. I'd like to
see more unity. Norm Blanton

with great presidents, such as
Eisenhower and Truman. We
should ask ourselves how
these new people measure up
to those great men of the
past.
Are they honest, both
morally and intellectually?
Will they put the long-term
good of the country ahead of
short-term gains for them-
selves? Will they always tell us
the truth? Will they set high
standards for appointees? Are
they competent administra-
tors?
More importantly, how
does the record of their lives
compare with their campaign
promises? People don't really
change.
Their opinions about
temporary issues might
change if they discover new
information, but their
principles and character
won't. Both Eisenhower and
Truman were as honest, as
self-disciplined and as hard
working as young men as they
were when they became
president.
Neither man was afraid to
do what he believed was right
even when it was unpopular.
It's time for the American
people to raise the bar for
candidates and to put an end
to the necessity of choosing
the lesser of two evils.
How much better it would
be if we have to choose the
better of two good people.

Sodders Comes Home To Lead Raiders' Baseball Team


TAKES OVER FOR KENNY WHITE
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
Mike Sodders was a star pitcher at Alabama, set-
ting records there that held for nearly 15 years. He
was a high draft pick and had a long minor-league
career, followed by an impressive series of stops as a
coach.
But never has Sodders been more excited than he
is at his latest stop, which happens to be the same
place he started. Sodders has been named the new
head baseball coach at Plant City High School.
"I haven't been sleeping much, I'm that psyched
up," he said. "Plant City is where I want to be."
The position came open when Kenny White, who
led the program the last two seasons, took the recent
vacancy at Hillsborough High School. Terriers coach
Pat Russo was forced to resign when reports of
recruiting came over Hillsborough, a team that made
it all the way to the Class 5A state finals last year.
Sodders is more than happy to step in for the Raid-
ers. Most recently he was a coach at tiny Hernando
Christian in Brooksville, where he took over in Janu-
ary. The program had never had a playoff victory
until this year.
Getting back to the playoffs is just the beginning of
Sodders' vision for the Raiders' program. If he could


do it at Hernando Christian, the chances are good it
can happen here. He took the job as a favor to a
friend at the school.
"I'm used to coaching guys that are 6-foot-4, 240
pounds and at the first practice at HCA, these guys
couldn't get the ball out of the infield," Sodders said.
In the two seasons before Sodders arrived they
had made the playoffs, but got beat by a combined
score of 26-1. Against Seffner Christian in May, Her-
nando Christian won 15-2 before it was eliminated in
the second round.
More important to Sodders is what happened after
that four players signed collegiate baseball schol-
arships. The school, which just added a new baseball
facility last year, had never had someone sign
before.
Of course Plant City has a bit more of a tradition,
one that traces back to his playing days.
Sodders was a standout in the early 1980s. In fact
as a sophomore in 1982 it was Sodders who was the
emerging pitcher on a team that featured Kenny
Rogers as an outfielder. Since then Rogers has gone
on to a very successful major league career as a
pitcher, getting the Detroit Tigers to the World Series
last month.
"That's one of the most unbelievable stories, early,
and one of my favorites to tell," said Sodders. "I
recently ran into (then Plant City coach) Charlie Per-
domo and asked him, did Kenny even pitch one


single inning in high school? He said, absolutely
not."
Sodders did plenty of pitching, going to Alabama
where he set school records for wins and strikeouts
that stood until 2002. He was drafted by the Expos in
the fourth round in 1987 but turned down the offer,
signing with the Cubs a year later. He made two
Triple-A all-star games but never got to the big
leagues.
After his playing days Sodders started off as a coach
of a minor-league team in Canada. Sodders then
returned to Alabama where he coached high school
ball and travel ball before heading back to Florida.
The whole time he had is eye on his alma mater.
"I would always call, but I respected the job that
they were doing with the program here," he said.
Now that his time has come, Sodders has some high
aspirations.
It has been more than a decade since the Raiders
had a winning record. Plant City's last playoff
appearance, in 2001, was a year when the Raiders
had a 10-15 mark.
"What I really want to do? I want to change the
whole outlook on Plant City," he said, energy exud-
ing from the phone as he was being interviewed from
Alabama on Tuesday.
"I think we're looked up as a baseball team that is
maybe not very serious at all. If anyone can pull it off,
I can."


Plant City, Durant Girls


Off To A Fast Start


The Sarasotas and the
Riverviews have held control
over 6A-District 8 girls
basketball the past couple of
years, but there's reason to
believe Plant City or Durant
can break up that domi-
nance.
Both the Raiders and
Cougars started their
seasons last week with high
levels of optimism. Plant
City got off to a 2-0 start and
has head coach Ginger Forte
beaming about her team.
"These girls are all
Velcro," Forte said. "They
mesh together so well."
Plant City has two seniors
and five juniors on the roster,
then add in a sophomore who
is quickly showing herself to
be a tremendous player.
Tekeyah Clark has averaged
12 points in the first two
games and is a "dream" to
Forte because of her obvious
knowledge of the game.
"You can just tell that she
knows the game inside and
out. It's rooted in her," said
Forte, who is also very
pleased with 6-foot-I-inch
junior Sade Dunkley and her
32 points in the first two
contests.
The Raiders started off
against first-year team Spoto
last Tuesday and outscored
it 21-0 in the first quarter en
route to a 56-11 win. More
representative was the next
game, a 55-45 win over
Tampa Bay Tech.
While Plant City appears
to already have the team
thing covered, that is what
Durant's O.J. Marbra is
working on. The Cougars
have no new players, and
thus plenty of experience,
but there is no single "go-to"
player. Returning starters
are Camille Jacobs, Altranise
Childs and Sonia Pitts.
"We probably won't have
a player score 10 points
every game, but that's OK,"


DAREK
SHARP


he said. "In order to be
successful, we have to be a
real team. We're going to
have to be very balanced."
The biggest worry is
turnovers, which reared up
against a very good Plant
team Monday night. Durant
turned it over 18 times in the
first quarter alone, more
than two turnovers per
minute, in falling behind 23-
4. The Cougars lost 51-28 to
fall to 1-2.
Boys basketball tips off
this week...
Plant City and Durant
were well represented in the
Western Conference all-star
team announcements. For
volleyball, Plant City had
Rena Reaume named to the
National Division's First
Team along with Durant's
Alexa Donini.
Raider running back Jacari
Bennett was the only non-
Riverview member of the
first team football backfield.
Durant had two make the
first team defense, lineman
Jamal Clark and linebacker
Eric Councill. Plant City
safety Kris Bellamy was on
the defensive unit also, and
punter Robbie Beck grabbed
honors.
Durant members of the
second team were quarter-
back Jeremy Fussell, Royce
Rose, David Zanata and Jacob
Wall. Mike Jett from Plant City
made the second team.

Gaither and Riverview at the competition.


Teams Fare Well In Wrestling Tourneys


NEW RAIDERS COACH

GOES UP AGAINST HIS

OWN BROTHERS
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
If a wrestling team is going
to include Brandon as part of
its tournament, then second
place pretty much becomes
the target to shoot for.
On that count, Plant City
had a very successful time Sat-
urday.
The Raiders, with new head
coach Nick Ferrario at the
helm, went 4-1 in a six-team
tournament hosted by Plant
City. Brandon not only won
the event, but the Eagles did
not even get scored against -
except in a 66-9 win over the
Raiders.
Ferrario had enough rea-


T'm expecting big
things out of my team.
We have the talent."
NICK FERRARIO
Head coach, Raiders

sons to be emotional, what
with it being his first-ever offi-
cial event as a coach. But the
fact that he had brothers
coaching two of his opponents
made it even more so.
"It was nice going against
my brothers, but when it
comes down to business, I was
ready," Ferrario said. Remy
Ferrario is an assistant at East
Bay while Mike is one of
legend Russ Cozart's assis-
tants at Brandon.
The Raiders had three
extremely tight matches but
came out on top each time. It
tied Gaither, 42-42, but tie-
breaking criteria favored the


Raiders. Plant City edged East
Bay, 40-30, and also defeated
Alonso, 42-36. The other vic-
tory was 46-21 over River-
view.
All four opponents were
better than .500 last season.
"I'm expecting big things
out of my team," Ferrario said.
"We have the talent ."
Durant came out the clear
winner at its weekend tourna-
ment, held at Sickles. The
Cougars went 5-0 as a team.
The Cougars' closest match
was 51-20 against Chamber-
lain.
Wrestlers who won all five
of their matches: Alex Hamm
(103 pounds), Justin Bechtold
(119), Erik Ruiz (125), Matt
Wacaser (140) and Zak
Upshaw (189). John Decker
was 4-0, Christian Reed, Josh
Triplett and Jordan Dobler
went 3-0 and Zander Raynal
was 4-1.
