A Gift



Of Faith

WILLIAM POU COMMISSIONED
ARTWORK FOR UNITED METHODIST
StaffReport
First United Methodist Church cele-
brated the heart of the late William
"Billy" Pou and the artistry of John
Briggs earlier this month at a Sunday
evening service to unveil two murals in
the church's sanctuary.
Depicting scenes from the early life of Christ, the
13-by-6-foot murals took more than year to
complete. They were commissioned by Pou 18
months ago in honor of his wife, Maida. William Pou
died Nov. 27, 2005. He was 82.
"When I first came to this church 16 months ago, I
was told John Briggs had been commissioned to do
some artwork for the church," the Rev. Earl Smith
told the congregation at the service. "I thought of
paintings in the hall, but then someone told me to
'think bigger Earl.' John did an incredible job," said
Smith, pointing to the murals that flanked the altar.
Briggs said it was a privilege to be chosen for the
job.
"It was a real honor to be picked for this project.
Thank you to everyone who helped along the way,"
Briggs said.
"It comes with a guarantee that it was not painted
by numbers" Briggs said to raucous laughter from the
congregation.
Thanking Briggs for his work, William Pou's son,
Bill, said the Nov. 20 unveiling came at a special time.
"My dad would have been 83 tomorrow."
Rick Norman, chairman of the church council,
officially dedicated the murals.
"We accept these murals as a sacred trust. We
dedicate these gifts to the glory of God," Norman
said.

Elderly Drivers Need To Be Retested


ichard Murray wasn't killed by a drunken driver
or a teenager out for a high-speed joyride in a
stolen car. The tragic death of Richard Murray
last week was the result of a crash with an 80-
year-old who pulled a Buick sedan directly into the
path of his motorcycle at Collins Street and West
Prosser Drive.


According to police reports,
the elder driver was cited for
failure to give Murray the right
of way.
Justified or not, it happens
whenever a senior citizen driver
is involved in a fatal crash: People
start to wonder out loud if elderly
drivers as a group are a danger
to others on the road.
It was the lyrics of the 1960's
- "having fun, fun, fun, 'til
daddy takes the T-Bird away" -
that immortalized the love of
cars. But as boomers age into
grandparents, the question is
becoming, when do you take
daddy's license away?
It caused me think about my
father. On the day of his 78th
birthday he decided to not renew
his driver's license. He had been
driving since the 1930s and his

decision to give up driving
required personal sacrifice.
My dad was an independent
sort; he transported himself to
the store, the doctor and just
about any other place he


wanted to go. I know he gave
up a good measure of indepen-
dence that day.
I'll admit the last time Irode
with him I was nervous. My dad
made a few calls that brought
my hands to the dashboard and
forced me to realize the impor-
tance of strapping on my
seatbelt. So, though it was a sad
day, I was relieved he decided to
quit driving. But he is not alone
in making a courageous
decision like this. The truth is
most senior citizens know when
it's time to quit driving.
But what about those who
don't?
You recognize them on the
road; hunched behind the steer-
ing wheel as they weave slowly
down the street like a drunk
driver, searching for the road
ahead. Those inexorable forces
of biology that converge on the
elderly driver, driving slower
than the rest of traffic, mean-
dering down the road, left-turn
signal blinking continuously.
So why don't we have laws to
protect us from motorist who
are physically impaired?
Can we move into a politi-
cally touchy area?


Politicians are vividly aware
that senior citizens vote; so
elected officials are reluctant to
arouse the anger of older voters
with any legislative action
leveled against them. Much like
the politicians at election time,
I live in fear that I'll be hit by a
cane or whacked by a walker
for my views on elderly driving.
But isn't it time Florida
lawmakers act for the good of*
all citizens by enacting new
drivers license requirements
for elderly drivers?
Yes, but wait a minute.
Here's the critical question:
When are drivers too old to get
behind the wheel? Answer: There
is no answer. I don't mean to be
smart. But the fact is some people
are just as capable behind the
wheel at 65 as some who are 18.
And by capable, I mean they see
well enough, react quickly
enough and think clearly.
Remember Eddie Richter?
Well, he's the 67-year-old
senior citizen who took part in
a police-sponsored driving
contest at the Citizen's Police
Academy, driving against kids

Merry Christmas'Makes A Comeback


hear Christmas is making a comeback this year.
Seriously. "Season's Greetings!" is out and "Merry
Christmas!" is back in. Corporate directives, I
understand, have reinstated "Merry Christmas" as


the go-to holiday howdy.

Retail revenues have been
sagging- God forbid and in an
effort to increase positive cash
flow, the Savior of the world
himself has been fingered as just
the man or baby- for the job.
Nice to know the Almighty is
en vogue again, even if it's
really just the almighty dollar.
My personal take on this little
dance we do every December is
likely not what most of you might
expect in this space. If some store
clerk wants to counter my "Merry
Christmas" with his or her
"Happy Holidays," I say no
problem. Keep those secular
salutations rolling for all I care -
it's not as if God really needs the
corporate sponsorship.
Or maybe in your jingle-bell
world God does? To hear some
people talk you'd think Jesus
wants us to buy all those extra
luxuries, increase our consumer
debt and spread around a little
extra seasonal coin. Surely if
Mary and Joseph had put away a
few extra shekels they'd have
skipped the cow pen and headed
directly for the nearest mall?
Seriously though, I'm not
comfortable with any holiday
greeting either required or pre-

endorsed by store ownership. If
all Sally-Jane at check-out lane
14 feels is a "Happy Holidays"
welling up inside her then that's
exactly what I want to hear --
even if the Pope himself is store
manager. I don't need to be
Merry-Christmased by anyone
who's uncomfortable with faith.
The older I get the more I've
come to value authenticity, and
there's already more than
enough tinsel wrapped around
my Jesus, thank you very much.
By the same token, if Joey on
aisle 15 is flying the "go-God"
banner full tilt, his timely "God


bless you" doesn't'need to be
muzzled by the politically
correct. This is America, good
grief, and if we can't be honest
about faith around Christmas
then we might as well pack up
the Bill of Rights and return to
pre-Reformation Europe.
Later this week it's going to
be December. I absolutely love
all the advent preparation, but
I'd much rather see evidence of
Christ's coming in the way we
all live than hear a contrived
increase in obligatory nods to
Christian faith punctuate the
cha-ching cha-ching of the
Christmas machine.
Last week, for example,
several hundred members of
my church spent two fun-filled
hours purchasing animals in a
creative gift market. The event
was designed to send livestock
and education to needy families
in Honduras, Guatemala,
Afghanistan and Appalachia.,
Talk about a hoot.
Different ministry teams
competed with one another to
sell the most animals. Rabbits,
lamas, pigs, cows, goats,
chickens, water buffalo, even
bee hives. Children buzzing
around in costume, leaders
impersonating old goats,
ministers dressed as pigs.
The good folk over at the
Brandon Chick-fil-A sent a guy
in a cow suit, sold 250 meals,
then turned around and donated
100 percent of the money they


collected to the cause.
This year, because we're all
trying desperately hard not to
confuse the celebration of
Christ's birth with our growing
obsession with shiny posses-
sions, about $20,000 worth of
animals are now going to help
rebuild the economy in several
small villages. It's a gift guaran-
teed to radically change the
lives and fortunes of literally
hundreds of families.
Heifer International,
www.heifer.org, don't just ship
livestock, they send aid workers
to train entire communities in
animal husbandry. It's one of the
most creative relief efforts in the
world, and if you're one of those
people who like to see exactly
what your charitable dollar is
doing, I can recommend the
program 100 percent.
December, then, is shaping
up to be joy-filled, action-
packed and opportunity-ridden.
The need in this world-and our
community is tremendous,
overwhelming at times, but
today our ability to address both
the root causes and the obvious
symptoms of poverty and
despair are unprecedented.
I'll leave it for the prophet
Jeremiah, writing about 580 B.C.,
to set the context for the coming
celebrations. "Surly I know the
plans I have for you, says the
Lord, plans for your welfare and
not for harm, to give you a future
with hope." Jeremiah 29:11

BETTY'S PLACE




Henderson Steps Up For Students



-TWI


BETTY
BRIGGS
Columnist

Ray Henderson and his six
siblings know how special
Veterans Day is. They were all
active in the armed forces,
collecting more than 70 years
of service. Ray recently
sponsored an essay contest at
Plant City High School, and
the family decided to award,
not one, but all 12 participat--
ing students scholarship
money.
The winners were Rebecca
Smith, $600, first place;
Elizabeth Starnes, $300,
second place; and Martin
Girling, $200, third place.
Honorable mentions and
$100 each, went to Adam .
Batley, David Byars, Ryan
Consolver, Brandon Godin,
Rusty Hartline, Jessica Joiner,
Tim Lovett, Dhara Patel and
Kristen Smith.
Congratulations and God
bless you all.

Wedding bells
December will join the
Plant City Sapp and Mueller
families when Carol Lynn, the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Herbert Gray Sapp Jr., and
Brett Chambers Mueller, the
son of Sherrie Chambers
Mueller and William Andrew
Mueller Jr., take their vows.
Brett is the grandson of
Betty Chambers and the late
Dr. Frank Chambers. He is a
finance graduate of the
University of Florida and a
loan officer with Sunshine
State Federal Savings and
Loan. He is on the YMCA
board, coaches Plant City
youth basketball teams and is
a mentor with the Hills-
borough Education Founda-
tion.
Carol Lynn, a student at
Hillsborough Community
College, will soon begin her
studies in elementary
education at the University of
South Florida.
God bless this union!

effort to put a new roof on the
sanctuary.

Riki Morgan earns kudos
Congratulations Riki
Morgan, South Florida Baptist
Hospital's Team Member of
the Month for
: November.
Riki, who was
raised in West
Palm Beach,
is a clinical
nurse.
"I've been
there for 17
years and I
love it," he
Morgan said. "This
community
and hospital are wonderful to
me."
When he's not at the
hospital, he's at Highland
Park Church of the Nazarene
in Lakeland helping his wife,
Jeanne, a children's pastor.
Riki also plays the baritone
horn and the couple have a
musically talented son,
Matthew, 17, who leads the
church's praise band.

Recalling William 'Bill'
McClelland
As we all look forward to
next year's Florida Strawberry
Festival, it's worth remember-
ing longtime Doverresident
and Strawberry Festival board
director William "Bill"
McClelland, who passed away
in October at age 77.'
It is no surprise to learn
that Bill and the late Jim
Redman have both been
memorialized as fiercely loyal
and committed Plant City
Christian leaders. The two
families camped together and
Ruby Jean Redman recalls
their last motor home trip to,
Gatlinburg, Tenn., several
years ago.
"We really enjoyed travel-
ing with the McClellands,"
she said. "Jim and Bill shared
a special friendship as good
Christian men."
Bill, like his friend Jim, was
a dedicated family man,
married for 56 years to Louise


Simmonds. He left a
daughter, Johanna Wethe-
rington, and a son, Reese
McClelland, Reese's wife,
Wanda, three grandchildren
and three great-grandchil-
dren. As a festival director,
Bill was not only interested in
the farming sector, but in
preserving the heritage of our
town; he was as a charter
board member of the East
Hillsborough Historical
Society.
Many fondly remember
him as "Dollar Bill" because
of his connection to Plant
City's banking and loan
business.
We will not forget these,
Plant City icons or their
contributions to our commu-
nity.

Whistle Stop reopens
The Whistle Stop Cafe
closed July 1 for "what we
thought was going to be a 30-
day sabbatical," says owner
Jerry Lofstrom. However, due
to a medical emergency, the
popular downtown eatery has
remained closed into Novem-
ber.
"Many people from Plant
City and others have con-
tacted us over these months
with questions as to the status
of the cafe and when we will
re-open," says Jerry.
The good news is the
Whistle Stop will open today,
Nov. 30.

Rick Cumbie celebrates
birthday
Gene Cumbie is planning
to celebrate with his son,
Rick, this month when Rick
turns 50 on Dec. 13. Rick is
the son of Gene and Lea
Cumbie and Wanda and
Bruce Bidwell.
Happy birthday, Rick. It
looks like you are every dad's
dream: a strong pair of
helping hands.

Jean Ann is 'outstanding'

SPIRIT
Continued From Page 11
Q: How long have you been
on staff?
A: I worked for Winn Dixie
for almost 21 years, helping
locations that needed invigo-
rating. I loved it, but knew
there was something deeper.
Then in 1999, Ijust burned out
from doing everything at the
same time. We sought the
Lord and then Pastor Herrin
approached me in 2000 and
said, "The Lord said you're
meant to be our youth pastor."
I just started to cry. I knew
what God wanted me to do -
the question was my willing-
ness to follow.
Q: Good call?
A: There's no doubt about
it. God's put us in places we
never dreamed possible.

Q: Has your program
grown?
A: Quite a bit. We now have
about 400 involved, around
300 any given Wednesday,
then 80 to 100 in ministry
teams on Sunday. There's a
misconception that it's a party
here, but it's ministry and dis-
cipleship and accountability.

Q: Do youth leaders net-
work?
A: I'm on the National
Youth Leader Association, the
state Youth and Christian
Education Board and the Flor-
ida Youth Leaders Association.
Locally, I get together with a
group of area youth pastors
across denominations.

. Q: How do kids -stay
connected?
A: We work with students in
small groups, and I do leader-
ship development with 20
volunteer adult staff. Our key
emphasis is "do small excel-
lent."

Q: What makes a disciple?
A: It's all about discipleship
for me. I want to maximize
every minute. Anybody can
say "I'm forgiven." It takes
more to say, "I follow you."
There's a saying: "May you be
covered in the dust of your
rabbi" meaning be that close
as a follower.

Q: Why kids?
A: That's where God has
gifted me. It's about what I
give to God. I've worked with
kids for years. I love to see
them open up, to see God
pour into their lives. Student
ministry is so rewarding.
They're not set in their ways
yet.

Q: Do you watch TV?
A: I do watch football. I
enjoy Jenson Franklin
(preacher) on TBN, "American
Idol" and Emmitt Smith (on)
"Dancing With the Stars."


.LA


Q: How do you get news?
A: I read the paper every
day I always read The Cou-
rier. The evening news when I
can. Then relevantmagazine-
.com to keep up with trends.
Q: How do you stay in touch
with youth?
A: Inundate yourself in their
world. Go where they go.
Make myself available. I meet
with our core leadership, I pay
attention.
Q: Are you optimistic?
A: Absolutely. These stu-
dents are smarter, more crea-
tive and more real. This
generation's hungry for some-
thing, and if we can help them
find it, they're going to turn
the world upside down.
Q: Do you have a Scripture?
A: Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in
the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own
understanding; in all your
ways acknowledge him, and
he will make your paths
straight."
Q: Why do you love Plant
City?
A: God has called us to be
here, and we've never let go of
that. This is just scratching the
surface of what we can do in
this town. This is a rich com-
munity, a warm friendly place.
People like to be known and to
have relationships.

A: We love to travel. Water
sports, NASCAR races, hot air
balloons, theme parks; we

open up our arms to the com-
munity. That's exactly what
Christ called the church to do.

Plant City Hears That Transportation Remains Key For Growth


COMMISSIONERS

BRIEFED BY MPO STAFF
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
A presentation made to city
commissioners Nov. 27 by staff
of the Hillsborough County
Metropolitan Planning
Organization spelled out the
importance of taking action on
transportation issues today
before the problems become
insurmountable.
Lucie Ayers, the executive
director of the MPO, and staff-
ers Ray Chiaramonte and Beth
Alden talked to commission-
ers during the Monday night
meeting at city hall. They
addressed issues concerning
light rail, streets and highways,
and the recently proposed
beltway system tying Inter-
state 4 to Interstate 75 in Pasco
and Manatee counties.
It came as no surprise to city
commissioners that transpor-
tation issues were on the front
burner when it concerns
growth. Commissioner Rick
Lott, a member of the MPO
board, said that opportunities
to address past transportation
issues in the county were lost.
He said there is no reason to
make the same mistakes
again. Long-range plans must
be made to relieve clogged
roads throughout the county.
"When you are speaking
about 10- or 20-year plans for
transportation development,
that is like a blink of an eye,"
Lott said. "We need to start


"We need to start working on

tomorrow's problems today."


CITY COMMISSIONER RICK LOTT
working on tomorrow's prob-
lems today."
The presentation by the MPO
staff to the commissioners will
be repeated to the Hillsborough
County Commission, the
Tampa City Council, Tampa
Mayor Pam lorio and to any
organization looking for
information, said Chiaramonte.
"Good transportation-choices
add to the economic vitality in
any given area," Chiaramonte
said. "Mobility adds to quality
of life. And a good combination
of transportation sources are
needed to make it work.
The presentation was titled
"consideration of rail," by the
MPO staff, but some of the back-
ground information was telling.
"The county had an oppor-
tunity to invest in rail transpor-
tation during the 1990s," Ayers
said. "Federal funding was
available but the steps needed
to get that project under way
were never taken. Now, high-
ways like Interstate 4, through
this area is reaching saturation,
which can stop all develop-
ment along that road."
The recently announced
plan from the Hillsborough
County Expressway Authority
for a beltway connecting Inter-
state 4 with Pasco and Manatee
counties could reduce some
traffic flow on the Interstate
through Plant City, Ayers said.
"But only if the beltway was


built east of Plant City, not to
the west," she said. "The belt-
way only helps reduce traffic if
it allows vehicles to go north
or south without traveling
through Plant City."
"And if the beltway ties into
the Polk County Parkway
system," said Commissioner
Robert Brown.
Concerning the rebirth of
light rail to the transportation
mix, Mayor John Dicks men-
tioned Plant City's heritage.
"Plant City got its start with
the construction of the rail-
road," Dicks said. "Including
Plant City in the construction
and use of rail in our area
would be a good match for us
and a natural continuation of
our history."
Ayers said local support is
needed to make it happen.
"We also need to communi-
cate with federal, state and
county governments to build
consensus on the needs.
Roads alone are not the
answer," Ayers said.
Additionally, the commis-
sioners:
* Approved the disbursement
of $845,303 from the Com-
munity Development Block
Grant fund to finance drain-
age improvements, afford-
able housing assistance,
rehabilitation and preserva-
tion projects, recreation and
park improvements, the Bing

half his age. He won the
coveted award top driver of
the 2006 Plant City Citizen's
Police Academy.
The Eddie Richter's aside, I
believe that more than a few
elderly drivers are a danger to
others when driving. Their
vision has often worsened
with age and their skills
behind the wheel should be
tested more often.
Opponents say if the elderly
are required to be.tested,
testing should be for every-
one, including die young. But
the point they miss is that
vision and driving itest-
cannot screen for a driver
who decides to drive too fast,
follow too close, is distracted
by reading a book, eating,
drinking, talking on a cell
-phone, putting on their
makeup, combing their hair,
weaving in and out of traffic,
and generally not fT:uililna
the rules of the road. T hose
are issues for the police
department.
But there's no denying that
age erodes the skills required
for safe driving: judging
distances, processing
information and reacting
W-iIthout htic -tation. Those
ph sical handicap_, to driving
can be tested, andshould be.
The maxim that-driling is a
privilege, not a right, applies
here.
As the population contin-
ues to age, wxe need to make
sure that safeguards are in
place to protect all motorists,
including the elderly. But that
will not be an easy task; the
elderly will argue that retest-
ing discriminates against
them. The media will be
accused of exaggerating a few
sensational, but isolated,
accidents. Politicians in
Tallahassee will try to avoid
the issue altogether. Emotions
and sentiment will get in the
way.
But there should be no
ducking it any longer; law-
makers need to show courage
by giving Florida new laws for
mandatory retesting of elderly
drivers.
I think Richard Murray
would have wanted it that
way.

CHRISTMAS PARADE DEC. 1;
PUBLIC ASKED TO SUPPORT
FOOD BANK DRIVE
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
More than 75,000 people are
expected to welcome in the holiday
season Dec. 1 at the 23rd annual
Plant City Christmas Parade.
The parade starts at 6:30 p.m. near
the Santos Apex on West Reynolds
Street, near Dort St., and will proceed
east on Reynolds and end at the
Hillsborough County Courthouse
downtown
And as usual, Santa will dazzle
guests with his grand entrance. But
in keeping with tradition, the details
of how and in what conveyance he
will arrive remains a mystery.
In an exclusive interview with The
Courier, Santa Claus said he was
looking forward to the parade in
Plant City.
"Having the parade on the first day
of December fits right in with my
busy schedule," Santa said. "The
Plant City parade is always special for
me. And I like to get it done early."
Santa said during the parade he
likes to see all the boys and girls,
young and old, to see if they have
been naughty or nice.
"All the good little boys and girls
should make a lot of noise when I
come by," Santa said. "I will remem-
ber them on Christmas."
Santa said his elves have been
busy making toys and clothes for
people all over the world.
"After we have a nice Thanksgiving
dinner, everyone goes into over-
time," Santa said. "Santa's shop is
always busy. But there is still a lot to
do."
Santa said there probably would-
n't be any snow in the air once he
gets to Florida.
"I wouldn't wish snow on the
people in Florida," Santa said. "Flor-
ida is my favorite vacation place. I
especially like Plant City for its
hometown appeal and the lack of
snow in the winter time. Flying is no
problem. And the takeoffs are all
right. It's those landings on steeply-
slanted roofs that give us a hard time
in the snow."
But rain, sleet or snow, Santa
promises to be there again, bringing
a special time for everyone he sees.
Admission to see the parade is
free, and parking is available on
nearby streets.


"Having the parade on
the first day of December
fits right in with my busy
schedule. The Plant City
parade is always special
for me. And I like to get it
done early.
SANTA CLAUS

Patrons viewing the Christmas
parade are asked to bring donations
of canned goods, boxed food and
other non-perishable items. No glass
containers please. Volunteers at the
United Food Bank of Plant City will
be collecting donated items. The
non-profit charitable organization
will showcase its new pickup truck in
the parade and volunteers walking
with the truck will collect the dona-
tions, said Linda Lawson, the food
bank director. Lawson can be con-
tacted at 764-0625.
Joyce Jordan, the 1999 founder of
Unity in the Community, will be the
parade's grand marshal.
"I would never have thought I
would be grand marshal of any
parade," Jordan said. "I am
delighted."
"She was an easy choice," said
Fran Neilsen, co-chair of the parade
with Frank LaBarbera. "Joyce helps
children, families and those in need
and she never thinks of herself. It's
always other people. Joyce goes
above and-beyond for'others."
Unity in the Community-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
founded.
"I just saw a need in the commu-
nity and wanted to help people,"
Jordan said. "The community has
always supported us from day one.
Plant City is a uniquely caring com-
munity."
But Jordan will be the toast of the
town come Friday.
Businesses, civic clubs, churches,
bands, schools and their clubs, along
with dignitaries, are represented in
the parade in the parade.
Members of the First Presbyterian
Church, 404 W. Reynolds St., will
serve food on the church grounds
prior to the parade, proceeds will
benefit the re-roofing of the sanctu-
ary.

YMCA Teens Clean Graffiti


YOUNGSTERS PICKED
PROJECT
Staff Report
Paint brushes in hand, teens
from the YMCA cleaned up
graffiti at sites around Plant
City last month.
Using paint and supplies
donated by Knotts Hardware,
the teens covered up writing
on an abandoned building on
Park Road, the Southern Hos-
pitality building and multiple
trash bins behind businesses.
"We are really proud of their
initiative and hard work on
-this project," said Doug. Bar-
nette, a YMCA senior program
director and an adviser to the
club. "Of course, they're still
teens so a lot of paint ended
up on the kids as well as on the
walls and fences."
*The graffiti cleanup was one
of three projects suggested by
the teens in the club. After
evaluating each project based
on the cost of materials,
impact on the community,


and, of course, the amount of
fun, the group voted and
chose the repainting of graf-
fiti.
The teens will send photos
and video footage of the
cleanup project to USA Week-
end Make a Difference Day, a
national contest that inspires
and rewards volunteer groups
by providing a $10,00.0 dona-
tion to the winning project.
If the club wins, the $10,000
will go to the YMCA's We Build
People campaign.
The club, which has 12
members, is part of a national
YMCA program that offers
those 12 to 17 years old the
chance to increase their lead-
ership skills, volunteer
involvement, health and fit-
ness. YMCA staff members
create the framework and
advise the club, guiding par-
ticipants to plan, develop and
approve the club's projects
and curriculum.
For more information about
the Plant City YMCA, visit
www.tampaymca.org/pc.

Every Minute Someone Dies From a Heart Attack


Coronary Artery Disease is the number one killer in
the U.S.. An estimated 64 million people in the U.S. have
Cardiovascular Disease nearly 1 in 5 men and women. Of
that number, 13 million have Coronary Heart Disease, the
leading cause of heart attacks.
Nuclear Stress Testing is especially useful in diagnosing
Coronary Artery Disease and blockages in coronary arter-
ies. Dr. Max Rattes opened the first in-office Nuclear Stress
Test Laboratory in Plant City in December of 2000. Nuclear
stress testing produces images of the heart indicating areas
that are receiving less blood, indicating trouble spots.
Heart attack symptoms include discomfort or pain in
chest, arms, back, neck, or jaw, shortness of breath, nausea,
or light-headedness.

Music May Help Chronic Pain
Researchers have discovered that
people with chronic pain may be
able to reduce their pain by 21%
by listening to their favorite mu-
sic for one hour a day. Results of
the recent study also showed a re-
duction in the depression score of
participants of 25% and an 18%
decrease in self-rated disability.
Those involved in the study suf-
fered from conditions like rheu-
matoid arthritis, osteoarthritis
and spinal disc problems and had
all experienced chronic pain for
at least six months.

Clown Collectibles Set


For Auction Block
HOPE REMAINS FOR BUYER TO
KEEP COLLECTION INTACT


By LINDA CHION KENNEY
Ichion@mediageneral.com
A 45-year-old collection
that began with a Marcel
Marceau painting is getting
readied for the auction block
unless somebody steps for-
ward to purchase what is
being billed as "the world's
largest clown collection."
If Jack Klein, 78, can't find a
buyer for his collection of
about 60,000 pieces, 800 of
the best items will be auc-
tioned in Brandon Dec. 1-3 at
the Best Western Hotel &
Conference Center at State
Road 60 and U.S. 301.
"It feels bad, the stuff's
going to go," said Klein, who
has been displaying and stor-
ing his collection at the Clown
Rushmore Museum in Lake
Hamilton, which he runs with
his wife, Sarah. Klein, known
as "Clown Jackey," has to
move out of the facility, off
U.S. 27, by Jan. 1.
He said he bought his first
painting at a Gimbel's Depart-
ment Store in New York.
"We're hoping to sell every-
thing to somebody so they
could open it up and show it
somewhere else, but that
hasn't happened yet," Klein
said. "But it could happen
over the next couple of days.
We're hoping."
So, too, is John Harris of the
Kincaid Auction Co., which
has been working with Klein
to find a home for the collec-
tion, which includes a good
number of rare collectibles.
Harris said the owner of the
auction company happened
upon the liquidation sale that
Klein had been holding at his
museum.
"Randy, the owner, said to
me, 'I've just seen the most
incredible thing I've seen in
my life,' and Randy is 65 years


"We think the best
thing is for him to
sell (his collection)
as a block sale. It
would be great in
a museum.
JOHN HARRIS
Kincaid Auction Co.
old and he's been auctioneer-
ing for 16, 17 years," Harris
said. "I've been working with
Mr. Klein ever since."
Part of the problem, Harris
said, is that the museum is in
a bad location; "70 miles per
hour on a curve," as he put it.
"We think the best thing is
for him to sell (his collection)
as a block sale. It would be
great in a museum," Harris
said. "There's a chance some
beneficiary will see it. Do I
think it's going to happen?
No. Do I think it could
happen? Certainly."
The collection includes
signed pieces by Emmett
Kelly Jr. and Red Skeleton, as
well as original oil paintings
by various artists and figu-
rines by artist and sculptor
Ron Lee.
For more, visit www.clow-
nrushmore.com. For more
information on the auction,
visit www.kincaid.com.
The Brandon Best Western
auction is at 9331 Adamo
Drive. Times are Dec. 1 at 4.
p.m.; Dec. 2 at 10 a.m.; and
Dec. 3 at 1 p.m. A two-day
liquidation sale of gift shop
merchandise and fixtures is
set for Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. and
Dec. 10 at 1 p.m., both days at
the Clown Rushmore
Museum at 29600 U.S. 27 in
Lake Hamilton. Call: 863-439-

Cougars To Host Stellar Field In Wrestling Tourney


FROM LIVE OAK TO MIAMI,
TOP SQUADS CONVERGE
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
There may be better high school
wrestling tournaments in Florida this
year, but that list will be a short one.
Strong squads from all over the state
will be meeting up this weekend at
Durant for the Cougar Invitational.
Matches begin at 2:45 Friday after-
noon and the finals are set for Saturday
night. In between there will be a ton of
wrestling.
As of Tuesday, with the last-second
addition of a powerhouse Kissimmee.
Osceola squad, the field for the event
was at 29. Because of that it will take
more matches than at a normal tour-
nament to determine the winners of
each weight-class bracket.
"Kissimmee Osceola is the team that


came in second to us at regionals last
year, but they've got everybody back,"
said the man who put together this
massive undertaking, Durant head
coach Dennis Kitko. "In fact, they
might be the team to beat."
The Cougars have to be considered
for that status as well but there are so
many other tremendous schools in the
field.
Most of the best Bay Area teams are
involved, with defending Class 2A
third-place finisher Lake Gibson and
Manatee leading that group. Lakeland,
Sarasota Riverview and Lakewood
Ranch are also invited. Jesuit is the
other strongest county team and is
joined by Hillsborough, Chamberlain,
Middleton, Alonso and Jefferson.
From Live Oak, Suwanee High the
state runner-up in 1A is another very
notable team.
"In getting some of these teams it
helped that I already knew some of the
coaches, like with Suwanee," Kitko


'In getting some of these
teams it helped that I al-
ready knew some of the
coaches, like with Suwanee.
But people know in general
that we've built up a pretty
strong program, and they
know it's going to be a first-
rate tournament."
DENNIS KITKO
Head coach, Durant wrestling

said. "But people know in general that
we've built up a pretty strong program,
and they know it's going to be a first-
rate tournament."
That helped secure the attendance
of other far-away teams such as Fort


Walton Beach, Gulf Coast, Merritt
Island, and Miami schools Braddock
and Southwest.
With so many wrestlers the meeting
to help seed individuals within their
brackets is a true event; it was Wednes-
day night at the Brandon Hooters.
"It's not just 29 schools, it's 29 full
teams," Kitko said.
Matches will be going on at five dif-
ferent mats Friday night. After Friday's
action the first three rounds plus two
rounds of wrestlebacks matches get
under way Saturday at 9:30 a.m.
The consolation finals will go from 5
to 6:15 p.m. Saturday with the finals set
to begin at 6:30. Medals will be
awarded to the top six players in each
weight class and the top five overall
teams receive trophies.
And a note for fans who plan on
attending: the concession stands will
be kicked up a notch.


SHARP CUTS



Take YourPick At


Playoff Games


Beating Armwood is
pretty easy after all. You just
have to have possibly the
best quarterback in the
country, a guy who is able to
run away from those scary
250-pound defensive
linemen, gather himself and
chuck a 50-yard pass.
So it's not easy, but I got
to witness Plant and star QB
Robert Marve pull that off
last Friday night. For those
of you who checked out of
the playoffs after Plant City
was eliminated, get on over
to Plant Friday to witness
that show. That is, if you can
get a ticket get in line no
later than 4 o'clock.
Like Plant (which faces
Miami's Booker T. Washing-
ton), the Lakeland Dread-
naughts are still undefeated
and play Friday for a trip to
the state finals. Lakeland has
a date with Daytona Beach
Mainland, and if you're a
Durant fan right now you're
thinking, "Wait a second,
Mainland sounds REALLY
familiar."
That would be because
Mainland, in retrospect, is
the team that just barely
cost the Cougars a state
championship. Back in 2003
Durant took the trip to
Daytona Beach for the state
semifinals and led for a
while, only to have Main-
land go ahead in the third
quarter and win 23-14. That
result was closer than
Mainland's state title victory
over Naples.
Since then it has been
three straight titles for
Lakeland.
The Durant football
program was proudly on
display Saturday. USF's
stunning upset of West
Virginia had a major Cougar
connection. Ean Randolph
had several key receptions
and the touchdown catch
that made the score 21-12 in


DAREK
SHARP

the third quarter. Late in the
fourth, a fellow former
Durant running back Trae
Williams made the game-
clinching interception his
seventh of the season.
For a change, it's the
Durant's boys soccer team
that's off to the big start
while the girls are struggling
a bit. The boys are 5-0-2
heading into the week while
the girls have played a tough
schedule and are at the .500
mark.
And here's a very exciting
note for soccer fans in Plant
City. The Lancers club
soccer program is about to
get its first head trainer. Jack
Dikranian will come from
the Black Watch program
with the idea of bringing
some serious clout to an
already growing
organization.
There are now 11 Lancers
teams (eight boys, three
girls) and the season is
about a month old....
Finally, just a friendly
reminder about the Wall of
Fame at Plant City High
School. The first-ever
induction is early in 2007,
and applications for Wall of
Famers are due by Dec. 31.
Applicants need to be
PCHS graduates and also
must fill out the applications
themselves.

Boys Basketball Rolls Out,


Into District Schedules Quickly


RAIDERS, COUGARS
GOT GOING LAST WEEK
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
One team lost its leader
while the other has its top
scorer back for three more
years. But that doesn't accura-
tely depict the makeup of the
boys basketball teams from
Plant City and Durant.
While the Raiders did lose
Jason Brown, the starting
point guard for all four of his
high school seasons, plenty of
talent is wearing the Raider
uniform. It was on display as
Plant City went 2-0 at a tip-off
preseason tournament at Jen-
kins High.
The boys basketball season
got under way last week.
"We have a lot of guys that
we're able to put on the floor,"
said Plant City head coach
Gary Meyer. "We try to go 10-
deep and get up and down the
floor."
Jeff Knight, Roderick Hen-,
derson and Denzel Drone all
return from regular duty last
year and have been joined in
the starting lineup by point
guard Kenny Woodall and
Steve Hardnett, who his been
a strong court leader.
Off the bench Kevin
Williams, Alex Semple and
Keith Bayhard have all been
putting in quality time as well.
"It's a very unselfish group,"
Meyer said.
Plant City knocked off both
the host Eagles and Lakeland
Christian at the preseason
event and Meyer said he was


'7 thought we had some pretty

good quickness until I went over

and saw Blake play. This will be

a good gauge for us, definitely,"
Gary Meyer
Head coach, Plant City basketball


impressed with the Raiders'
intensity. In the regular season
opener it was an easy victory
against first-year Spoto.
The schedule picks up
quickly. First off is a home
game Friday against Blake.
"I thought we had some
pretty good quickness until I
went over and saw Blake play.
This will be a good gauge for
us, definitely," Meyer said.
Then next week the Raiders
go into District 6A-8 play with
three games in four days. The
Raiders host Sarasota on
Tuesday then in comes rival
Durant for a game Thursday.
Next Friday Plant City is at
Sarasota Riverview, which
along with Lakeland comes in
as the favorite to win the dis-
trict.
While the Raiders are able
to run two seniors and two
juniors out for a starting
lineup, Durant is quite the
opposite.
"We started four sopho-
mores and a freshman in our
two preseason games," said
Durant head coach Jeff Shot-
well. But one of the sopho-
mores is A.J. Garden, who led
the Cougars as a freshman
with 15. 5 points per game.


The guard tandem is one
that Shotwell said will be
exciting to watch for years to
come. They are the Mitchell
brothers: Mitchell is a sopho-
more who was the point guard
on the JVteam, and Jordan is a
freshman who has a great out-
side shot. Jordan Mitchell
made four three-pointers in
the two preseason games.
Royce Rose, a junior, will
bring more experience but
first has to recover from a knee
injury suffered as a member of
the football team. Rose (6-4)
will provide some inside pres-
ence when he is able to play.
"Size will again be a big
issue for us. But we've always
dealt with that here. It is not a
new obstacle," Shotwell said.
Denaldi Bradley is a sopho-
more who is an aggressive
rebounder, can block shots
well for his size (6-1) and can
also score from 15 feet and in.
Others expected to contribute
are sophomore Michael Lucas
and juniors Damon Kolanow-
ski and Mike Culbertson, a
transfer from Newsome.
The Cougars are at Lennard
Saturday afternoon and have
district games with East Bay,
Plant City and Lakeland next
week.
