Building Permits Down


DECLINE SHARPEST
IN NEW HOMES
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
Permits for new construction
in the city showed the sharpest
drop in the area of single family
homes this year. Additionally,
the total dollar value for all per-
mitted construction was down
in November, making it the
second time the monthly total
failed to outpace 2005.
On Dec. 11, city manager
David Sollenberger told the city
commission that new
construction permits were far
ahead of last year.
"Year to date, the value of
permits is far ahead of last
year," Sollenberger said. "We
noticed single family residence
permitting was down. But over
all, the Plasti-Pak addition and
the Dunkin' Donuts/Baskin
Robbins remodel were signifi-
cant project permits."
The city permitted 15 single
family homes in November
with a construction value just
over $2 million. During the
same month last year, 52 per-
mits were issued with a value of
$6.35 million.


The Plasti-Pak addition at
4211 Amberjack Blvd., a Regis-
ter Construction and Engi-
neering project, has a
construction cost estimate of
$1.2 million. The remodel at
Dunkin' Donuts, 2307 Jim Red-
man Parkway, a Fitzgerald
Construction project, is valued
at $500,000. For November,
2005, the total permitted value
was $7.9 million, with most of it
found in the new residential
classification. This November
the total value of permitted
construction was almost $5.5
million. The total of 349 permits
in November was 29 permits
higher than the same month
last year. But that number does-
n't always equate to more work
being done, a city official said.
"Until Novemberthe number
of single family residential
projects have shown a
continued increase," said Terry
Doolittle, a city building plans
inspector. "But that doesn't
mean all those projects are
necessarily coming out of the
ground. There is a definite
slowdown in housing starts in
our area. Some of that could be
the usual end of year slowdown.
We'll see what happens in the
next few months."

Driving home a point
Hoping to make teenager-see the reality of drinking and driving, the DUI Diversion
program placed this car outside the main entrance to Plant City High School last week.
The car was involved in an drunken-driving accident earlier this year that left two people
dead. "The sponsors of this program hope that (viewing the car) provides a direct insight
into what the result may be if a teen decided to drink and drive," said Brad Sparkman of
Progressive Research, one of the program sponsors. David Brewington of Brewington's
Towing and Todd McClernan of The Image Depot also help sponsor the demonstration.

OPINION


Its Time For A Change, Literally


ust when you thought it was safe to quit the fixation
about every driblet consumed and every calorie
burned, it's snuck up on us: the "holiday season."
In defiance to my weight reduction plan, I pinned
some mistletoe to my derriere and turned my back to
the diet.


Let's face it it's the season
for feast and festivity. But after a
holiday season full of chips and
cheeses, eggnog and cookies, I
am beginning to feel like the
portly Dominick DiNapoli in
the 1978 movie "Fatso"; now
the diet is getting the last laugh.
The New Year brings
promise, a fresh start and, yep,
you guessed it New Year's
resolutions.
It starts with a hug and a kiss
from family and friends, leaving
last year's stress and problems
behind. We sing that song no
one knows the words to and we
greet this new beginning with
hope a resolution to be better
to ourselves and to others.
But you'd think that after
countless years of people
making New Year's resolutions,
the world would be a far better
place. Doesn't it make sense
that if every human being went
through a yearly upgrade, the
oldest among us would be
pretty close to perfection by
now, and the youngsters
should be showing signs of
improvement?
But if fantasies came true,
something unusual would
happen at the stroke of mid-
night this New Year's Eve.
Kevin would have stopped
smoking; George would have
the muscle-bound, invincible


JERRY

look of a body builder, and
Jerry would have written his
best-selling book.
We want in some way to
become better people, to make
a fresh beginning. Our motives
may be good and our passion
strong, but when it comes to
New Year's resolutions, they are
frequently broken before the
eggnog disappears from the
refrigerator and the tattered
Christmas tree makes it to the
curb.
Brandie Johnson, member-
ship coordinator at the Plant
City YMCA, says that member-
ship enrollment skyrock-
ets after the New Year with
people eager to exercise and
passionate about weight-loss.
But, she adds, that resolve often "


wanes as the year winds on.
I broke out my dusty book of
unfulfilled resolutions and
began planning the first 30 days
of 2007. You see, my perform-
ance record shows I'm focused
on change in my life for about
30 days before I get distracted,
meaning I remember that being
lazy is so much easier.
But this year will be differ-
ent, because this year I've got
an idea that might help in
keeping my resolutions
through 2007.
What resolutions have you
made for the coming year?
No more cigarettes? No more
leaving yesterday's socks on the
bedroom floor? Maybe a pact
made in a weak moment to help
more with the housework;
maybe something as simple as
being a better listener. Sound
familiar? Join the club.
Be honest, now, have you
ever looked at others and then
said to yourself, "I wish they
were a little more disciplined,
or tidier around the house, or a
little more thoughtful." The list
could go on, couldn't it?
The best suited to make a
New Year's resolution may not
be the person who's making
the resolution. The best suited
person may be the person who
knows us best, and who may
have a better point of view on
what we need to do to improve
as a person.
So instead of allowing us to
resolve that we're going to be,
better prepared for work this
year, maybe our fellow workers
might resolve that we show up
on time for a change. -"
While we might resolve to do


more cooking, maybe our
family might think our time
would be better spent if we just
did the dishes.
While we might resolve to buy
a better anniversary gift for our
mate, our mate might resolve
that we show that consideration
each day of the year.
- The year 2006 will soon be
history and we will embark on a
new year. I have always liked the
opportunities a new year brings.
It's a time for reflection. It gives
us an opportunity to re-exam-
ine, reorganize and set new
priorities for the year ahead.
One thing is sure: 2007 will
bring change. Some people
flourish with change, while
others like the usual. We are all
creatures of habit the old ways
of doing things take little effort
and are familiar, and we are
sometimes unwilling to make
the choices that will bring
positive changes in our lives.
Even though we want things to
be different, there is something
comforting about the familiar.
The New Year lays out a path
before us; the road is yet to be
traveled. In the months ahead
some of the pathways will be
smooth, while others will be
steep and jagged. There will be
challenges, but there will also
be opportunities.
God has given us the gift of
another New Year; now is the
time to think about what we
can do in 2007 to improve our
life, to give to others, to make
*our family happier and to make
Plant City a better place to live.

Christmas Party Time And A Whole Lot More


I love everything associated with giving and receiving
Christmas presents. Preparation, purchase, antici-
pation, keeping the surprise factor alive. Piling gifts
under the tree, snickering because I know and they
have no idea, watching someone unwrap something I
worked hard to pull together, even opening a few
myself. This year may be Christmas No. 51 for me, but
the process never fails to electrify.


Plus, I love the parties, which
is funny considering that I'm
naturally shy. Somehow
though, probably via the social
necessity of being the preach-
er's husband, I have learned
the more essential choreogra-
phy of the social dance. I have
found that, to my delight, I
really do love people.
All in all Christmas works out
pretty well for someone like
me.
But it gets better. The huge
parade of parties my wife and I
attend this time of the year
typically involve happy sober
people who also happen to like
one another.
Not just happy but sober,
too? I know that's a far cry from
the standard office shindig. But
what can I say, I've got bunches
of friends who love their lives
and enjoy one another's


DEREK

company. From the church
choir to my men's Bible study
to the support group for
parents of college-aged kids,
I'm surrounded with much
more than seasonal goodwill.
Then there's my wife's office
party. Talk about a hoot! The


gathering brings together all
her staff along with their
spouses. There may be only 20-
some people, but they sure
manage to make a lot of noise.
The evening is always guaran-
teed Christmas merrymaking,
and of a quality pretty much
unimaginable to people who
define fun in terms of how
quickly they get smashed or
who they wake up with the next
morning.
Stereotype all you like about
church folk, but the truth is this
is a fun crowd. Maybe it's
because we love one other
unconditionally. Maybe it's
because we're all tapped into
the same source of joy. Maybe
it's because we're secure in
ourselves and we don't have to
play games.
Remember traditional
dinner parties and sparkling
conversation? Well we're a
small enough group to still
enjoy table talk. So traditionally
I ask a couple of leading
questions to get the ball rolling.
Believe me it's always amazing
where the evening goes.
This year my question was,
"Share an interesting or
unusual Christmas memory."
Some of them made us laugh,
some of them made us cry,


some accomplished both. My
favorite was either Kelly's dad
and his perennial struggle to
keep a Christmas tree upright
or Rebekah's "My parents
honestly thought it was cold
medicine" story from back in
1961. Heather shared about a
lost childhood memory her
husband lovingly restored, and
Gil remembered having the
only Christmas tree for 200
miles back in Vietnam.
The best of the evening,
however, is always the gift
exchange. We hand out
numbers and do the whole
stealing thing; you know how it
goes. It's always a good time,
but this year, and for the first
time in recorded history, I
pulled out the highest number.
And boy was I smug.
"Not my turn yet," I kept
saying, watching the favored
treasures emerge and then
change hands numerous times.
Eventually the dust settled,
wrapping paper littered the
floor, and I had my potential
pick of absolutely anything in
the room. A house full of happy
people suddenly fell quiet,
nervously clutching their
riches. I had waited for this
moment for years.

Well done, Fran
I want to give special

For more than 27 years she
has been an untiring, gener-

COMMENTARY


Remember That There's No Going Back


East of Atlanta, an outcropping of granite rises
863 feet above the Georgia plateau. It is
rounded and about five miles in circumference.
Today, Stone Mountain is owned by the state of
Georgia, and there is an amusement park.
In earlier years, however, visitors who climbed to
the top would sometimes walk toward what they
thought was the edge. Because of its rounded shape,
there was no edge; there was only an ever-receding
illusion of an edge. Sometimes people would realize
too late they had walked too far and, unable to go
back, would fall to their deaths.
I believe we Americans for the only debate to be

percent of our massive public
debt is now held by foreign-
ers. This is dangerous. Either
because of spite or loss of
faith in our fiscal responsibil-
ity, this massive amount of
U.S. bonds could be dumped
on the market and cause a
financial catastrophe.
Trade policies have to be
revamped, because no
American, no matter how
well-educated or -trained, can
compete with people who will
work for half or less than what
an American makes. The
theory of The New York
Times' self-appointed sage,
Tom Friedman, about a flat
Earth is a prescription for
turning America into a Third
World country.
That's not far-fetched. An
article in the Dec. 5 edition of
the Financial Times reports


that 10 percent qofAmericans
own 70 percent of the nation's
wealth. That leaves only 30
percent to be divided by the
remaining 90 percent of the
population. The government
loves to use statistics to
disguise the truth. The claim,
for example, that 69 percent
of the people own their
homes includes people who
are making mortgage.pay-
ments. Paying on a mortgage
is not ownership. Read the
fine print in your mortgage
contract if you doubt this.
The war in Iraq is an insane
endeavor for a number of
reasons, not the least of which
is the stupidity of spending
billions of dollars to destroy
the country and more billions
to reconstruct what we just
got through destroying.
Yes, we are stuck with a
huge central government with
imperial ambitions. Neverthe-
less, we had better do all we
can to see that this leviathan
is run by honest and intelli-
gent people, lest we follow all
the previous empires into the
sanitary landfill of history. We
can't afford any more boy
emperors or chicken hawks
anxious to prove their man-
hood at the expense of other
people's lives.

IN THE SPIRIT



A Year In the Spirit'


"In the Spirit" has run as a
weekly feature since Dec.
2005, profiling Plant City's
spiritual leaders with ques-
tions and answers about their
life and ministry. After one
year and more than 50 con-
versations, a distinct picture
of the community's spiritual
personality is emerging.
Derek Maul answers some
interesting questions.
Q: How many denomina-
tions have been featured?
A: At least 13 and that's
only if you lump all "indepen-
dents" together as one group.
Q: How many Baptist
preachers?
- A: Twenty-one and count-
ing. There are a lot of Baptist
churches around Plant City,
more than 40 congregations
in the Southern Baptist Shiloh
Association alone.
Q: What's the breakdown?
A: The second largest group
has been Assembly of God
(eight columns to date), next
the Methodists (four), and
then two each representing
Presbyterian, Lutheran and
the Church of God.
Q: You can pick a preacher
out of any crowd, right?
A: Not exactly. The Eastern
Orthodox priest wore
elaborate vestments, then a
couple of preachers sported
clerical collars. But the major-
ity of Plant City pastors come
to the office in street clothes.
Q: Were any women fea-
tured?
A: Yes. We talked with two
women pastors and one
preacher's wife. Plant City is
beginning to see more women
in spiritual leadership.
Q: How old are Plant City's
preachers?
A: We have talked with
preachers from 26 to 78, the
majority fall between 35 and
55.
Q: How politically diverse
are preachers?
A: This is a conservative
town, but church runs the
gamut. Typically, people tol-
erate more social conscience
in their pastors than they can
stomach in themselves.


DEREK MAUL/Photo
The Rev. Clifford Frink
(photographed-in May)
represented the purity of
faith and clarity of focus that
characterizes Plant City's
spiritual leaders. Frink, senior
pastor at Fellowship Baptist
Church, died in October after
a courageous struggle with
cancer. His legacy is a gener-
ous heart, a indomitable spirit
and an enduring hope.
Q: Are the buildings pretty-
much standard?
A: Not at all. People meet in
living rooms, storefronts, cha-
pels, churches and auditori-
ums. Worship ranges from
incense and chanting to
electric guitars and rap. The
majority of congregations fea-
ture choirs and hymn books,
but most also offer "blended"
worship with light contempo-
rary music. "Coat and tie"
churches still exist, but if you
prefer flip-flops, shorts or
overalls, Plant City has a place
for you.
Q: How much do preachers
make?
A: A handful earn generous
salaries. Many work jobs on
the side and volunteer time at
church. Most pastors, how-
ever, earn far less than you
would expect for such highly
credentialed professionals.
Q: Have some interviews
touched you deeply?
A: Plant City is blessed with
deeply committed spiritual
leaders, men and women of
profound faith and undivided
passion. Every minister has a
powerful story if you have the

More than 200 business and civic leaders gathered at the Ramada Inn Dec. 13 for the Plant City
Chamber of Commerce monthly contact breakfast. Above, Chamber chairman Danny Coton hands
over a check for $500 to Linda Fuhrman, left, and Lou Baird of Unity in the Community, a local
charity group.
Below: The Chamber also made a donation to The Food Bank of Plant City. Linda Lawson, founder
of the group that provides food to hundreds of local families each year, accepted the check.

William Ulbricht, chief operating officer of South Florida

and parks department accepted The Courier's Person of the
Year award at the breakfast from editor Kevin Brady.

Continued From Page 11
time with Pastor Cliff Frink of Fellow-
ship Baptist. Cancer took his life on
Oct. 6 but Cliff lived his faith with real
commitment and authentic joy. He
said the following about what it means


to be Christian:
"People need to see Jesus working
through us. To see the reality of Jesus
they need to see it lived out through
you the fruit of the spirit is the
character of Christ. I don't want my
kids just to say they had a good dad, I
want them to say, 'My dad was a man
of God.'"


Q: What do preachers have in
common?
A: Much more than the small details
that divide.
Q: Are there any preachers left to
interview?
A: Absolutely. Superpages.com lists


more than 150 churches serving the
Plant City area. The challenge, of
course, is to connect with the pastors.
Do you have someone you would
like to see us profile in this column?

Lords Win Inaugural Award


'NOT AN EASY DECISION'
StaffReport
Christmas came early for Alice
Faye Lord this year.
She was just expecting a couple of
visitors, so when the big, black Lin-
coln pulled up outside her home at
1009 N. Ferrell St. Dec. 7, she was a
little surprised. But when the mem-
bers of the Plant City Garden Club
got out and presented her with the
club's inaugural Garden of the Year
award, the surprise turned into
shock, leaving a smile on her face for
the rest of the afternoon.
"I couldn't believe it," Lord said.
"There afe some beautiful gardens
around town. I never dreamed I
would get an award like this. But it's
really the Lord's in this garden. It's
not about me. All the glory is due to
him."
Club president Cassandra Ban-
ning, however, felt that Lord
deserved at least some of the credit.
"It was not an easy decision as
there were many beautiful gardens
that were looked at from monthly
winners to gardens that readers
called in and recommended," she
said.
The Garden Club gives out a
monthly garden award and had been
soliciting nominations for a garden
of the year.
"Wayne and Alice Lord's beautiful
gardens were selected for their use of
color, texture, balance and scale and
also use of garden art, all of which
gently draws you in leading you from
the street to the backyard.
Their gardens welcome you so
that you want to sit a spell and enjoy
the peace and tranquility diat
abounds," she said.
"For Alice, gardening is all about
family. Her mother began the gar-


dens in 1940, her sister lives next
door and the two sisters are often
seen together helping each other
and family members out. Alice is
always willing to share the beauty of
her gardens," she continued.
The garden was featured on the
Garden Club's annual garden tour in
1999.
Lord's garden, which she works on
with her husband, Wayne, and sister,
Margie, stretches over more than a -P-
quarter of an acre, from her backyard .
into her sister's house next door and
then into her niece's.
Hard to imagine that it all started
small 14 years ago. e '
"My backyard had weeds, a dog
pen and a mulch stack back then,"
she said.
Then her husband brought home
some decorative wall stones from
work that were going to be thrown
away. Alice also had some decorative :
grass plants from her niece's yard..
that were destined for the garbage
dump.
"Little by little we went from
there," she said.&
With her husband and sister, she
works on the garden as much as she
can.
"It's like someone who paints or .
fishes it's just something I love to
do," she said.
The Lords are also cost effectiveA-
when it comes to the upkeep of the
garden.
"We go to yard sales and thrift
stores and pick up a lot different
things," she said. "It really doesn't
cost that much."
The Lords run an "open garden" --n
and are happy to have visitors to
their garden.
"It's really about the Lord," she-A
said. "It's His work you see in the
garden."

Breaking ground on Laura Street
Future home owners and members of the city commission and city staff were on hand Dec.
11 to take part in a groundbreaking ceremony for an affordable housing project on city-
owned property along Laura Street. The city community development department has
made several properties available to low-income residents who purchased the properties in
the Laura Street Restoration District. The project provides affordable housing and assists
with the revitalization of the restoration area, city officials said.

I looked at my number and
rubbed my hands together in
anticipation. Heather's train?
Wayne's wrought iron candle
set? Jackie's ornament? Gil's
angel? Kelly's box from my

But then I wondered to
myself: "How could I take any

friends were all so content
and, more to the point, wasn't
the spirit of Christmas in the
air?
Peace on Earth. Goodwill to

Staff Report
Students at Marshall Middle
School in Plant City are seeing
science more clearly than ever
thanks to six new LCD projec-
tors purchased with help from
a $3,000 grant from Cargill
Grain & Oilseed Supply
Chain.
Science teachers at Mar-
shall, which has more than
900 students in grades 6-8, are
using the LCD projectors to
showcase virtual labs, pre-
made PowerPoint presenta-
tions and concept-mapping
programs.
"Hillsborough County just
adopted a new middle grades
science program and a large
portion of the curriculum that
came with the new textbooks
is technology-based. The new
projectors have really helped
us maximize the county's
investment," said Farrell
Rogers, the science depart-
ment chair at Marshall. "I
have used the new projectors
every day. We would not have
been able to do this without
Cargill's help."
"We're excited to be able to
help science teachers at Mar-
shall more effectively teach
and for students at the school


to be better able to learn," said
Linda Hiznay, a spokesperson
for Cargill. "The future suc-
cess of companies such- as
Cargill, as well as our commu-
nity, depends on the ability of
our young people to learn
about such important sub-
jects as science."
Cargill's contribution was
jointly funded by Cargill Grain
& Oilseed Supply Chain in
Tampa and the Cargill Global
Partnership Fund, a corporate
program that matches contri-
butions made'by Cargill facili-


ties to support special projects
and services in their commu-
nities.
The company decided to
fund the Marshall project
after an employee at its
Tampa office, Jack Dixon,
brought it to management's
attention. Dixon's wife, Sher-
lynn Dixon, is a teacher at
Marshall.
Cargill is an international
provider of food, agricultural
and risk management prod-
ucts and services with 149,000
employees in 63 countries.

Volunteers Needed To Help SHINE


ASSIST WITH MEDICARE,
MEDICAID QUESTIONS
By KATE KRAMER
kkramer@mediageneral.com
When Jim Mulcahy retired as The
Tampa Tribune's area circulation
manager in 2002, he didn't realize all
he needed to know for health insur-
ance in retirement.
"When I left, they handed a packet
and said 'good luck,"' he said. "I
thought there had to be other people
who needed help understanding this."
Today, the area coordinator for the
Serving Health Insurance Needs of
Elders program organizes volunteers
in Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee,
Hardee and Highlands counties to
help seniors understand insurance.
The state-funded program has been
offered in West Central Florida for
more than 10 years. Volunteers assist
and educate seniors with health insur-
ance concerns, including how to com-
pare policies and interpret coverage
with Medicare and Medicaid.
Mulcahy said in the five counties he
works with there are 48 volunteers and
only one bilingual volunteer.
In order to advise seniors, volun-
teers go through extensive training
over several months including a one-
day overview class teaching the basics
of Medicare and Medicaid, a three-day
training on the specific types of insur-
ance, a one-day class on the SHINE
program, a one-day presentation skills
class and a review class. Before they
start giving advice to clients, volun-
teers partner with a mentor to assist
them. Training takes place over several
months and begins next in January.
Mulcahy, who started as an adviser,
said while the training may seem over-
whelming, the program offers the vol-
unteers the resources they need to
answer questions.
Each volunteer gets a briefcase con-
taining several books including "Medi-
care Explained," "2006 Medicare and
You Booklet," Shine for Seniors bro-
chures and a notebook with all mod-
ules covered during orientation.
"You don't have to memorize every-
thing, but we teach you to know where
to look," Mulcahy said.
Mulcahy saw the benefits of his vol-
unteering when he helped one woman
who paid a $3,800 medical bill find and
fix an error to get her money back from
what was a $38 bill.
Volunteers work four hours per week
and 16 hours per month. They can
assist seniors over the phone or meet
with them one-on-one at the office,


WHO EE S"






WHO NEEDS IT??


I' look at it as if

I needed it. It's a

good feeling when

you know you

helped somebody."
JIM MULCAHY
Area coordinator for the Serving Health
Insurance Needs of Elders program
5905 Breckenridge Parkway, off U.S.
301.
While volunteers help others
understand health care programs,
Charmaine Andrews, volunteer coor-
dinator for West Central Florida Area
Agency on Aging Inc., said they must
leave the decisions to the clients.
"Volunteers are trained to work and
counsel seniors on how to use whatever
insurance they have to their best advan-
tage," she said. "We don't actually do
work for them; we try to empower them
to do the work for themselves."
Volunteers vary and range in age
from 40 to 80. They include retired
social workers, nurses, executives and
telecommunications professionals.
Andrews said while some volunteering
jobs may seem easy, SHINE gives vol-
unteers a chance to work hard while
they make a difference.
"This program gives people solid
program they can sink teeth into," she
said. "It's more intense than a normal
volunteer program. It's not a fluff pro-
.gram."
Beyond learning the information to
help the seniors, Andrews said learn-
ing about insurance also helps volun-
teers for when they need to use the
insurance themselves.
Mulcahy said from November to
May the enrollment period for Medi-
care volunteers had a high number of
calls because of the change of Part D of
Medicare, which now covers medica-
tion costs. Instead of the usual 15 calls
per day, volunteers faced more than
100 calls per day.
The calls have slowed down, but
Mulcahy said the number of volun-
teers has also dropped because of
some volunteers returning to the North
for the summer. He encouraged com-
munity members to volunteer with the
program both to learn the insurance
plans themselves and to help others.
"I look at it as if I needed it," he said.
"It's a good feeling when you know you
helped somebody."

program, call 740-3888, Ext. 510.

LIFE IS A GAME, A VERY SERIOUS GAME FOR THIS FORMER NBA ALL-STAR


By SCOTT E. RUPP
srupp@mediageneral.com
James Price has spent his
life playing games.
Specifically, basketball.
He's no stranger to the
analogies of the game and
living life by the rules
therein.
He's made a life of living
on the road, swapping stories
with guys on the teams he's
coached. The game has taken
him around the world, as far
away as Kuwait, and to small
places unknown to the
masses, like Kearney, Neb.,
or, recently, to Brandon,
where he's lived since
August.
Wherever he goes is
another place where he
could plant some roots, he
said. Brandon is no different
than Kearney or Colorado.
He's happy. He doing
something he loves. He loves
basketball.
A former all-star in the
NBA, having played for the
Los Angeles Lakers, the
Detroit Pistons, Denver
Nuggets and Milwaukee
Bucks for a total of seven
years throughout the 1970s,
he has no pretense for his
accomplishments.
"It's a good icebreaker," he
said of both his professional
playing days and starting
conversations with strangers.
Humble and soft-spoken,
one wouldn't think he was
once a domineering
defensive guard who made it
to the All-Star game in 1975.
But he did. And when he
left the game to coach, he
found more of the same -
success.
Coaching teams in the inde-

into league champions. He did
it in Kearney, in the first and
only year the team existed,
and in Miami.
His Tulsa his team became
division champions. He even
helped take Butler University
to the NCAA Tournament in
1997 and 1998 as an assistant
coach.
With all that bouncing off
the boards, he rebounded
and left his hometown of
Indianapolis. He headed to
Florida earlier this year on
the recommendation of a
friend who said the world of
youth basketball had not
been developed here and the
need to cultivate the field
was growing.
"There's a need for
basketball skills develop-

here, so there's still a need. I
came down here to put a

Dogs.


ship, cooperation, enthusiasm,
ambition, fight, integrity,
honesty, faith, poise and skill,
among others, and builds on
them through sportsmanship
and teamanship.
Price, who played against
Wooden, claims the experi-
ence was one of the most
memorable of his life.
Lessons left by Wooden on
the court years after the
coach left the game have
become ways of life for Price,
specifically, "building
players, building teams,
building success" the
motto for Price's business.
"Sports have tied commu-
nities together; brought
people together," he said.
"Developing a player impacts
them from the inside out.
They develop things that can
help them be successful as
people."
Through sports and
enhancing people's character
qualities, he also hopes to
build their confidence, and
do it all with integrity.
"You never really know
when you're going to call on
your character qualities," he
said.
Next month he'll be
starting a new basketball
league in Brandon for middle
school kids, boys and girls.


The camp will run from
Jan. 6 through March 3 on
Saturday.
As for the game, he still has
no plans to leave. In fact, he is
planning the near impossible:
leading a Tampa independent
basketball team, the Tampa
Bay Strong Dogs, to a champi-
onship. Mind you, once the
team becomes a reality.
About two weeks after
moving to Brandon, he was
offered the head coaching
job. And while there isn't a
team in Tampa yet, it is in
the formation process.
It was supposed to have
started this year, playing at
the University of Tampa.
According to information
Price has gathered from team
owners, the team will be
delayed only one year,
beginning play in late 2007.
For now, when not working
with children on the court,
he's scouting talent to fill the
team roster, guys from college
and independent leagues.
He's a coach and player.
Once it gets into him, the
game seems to take on a life
of its own. Perhaps it's a
character quality, maybe a
business venture.

Durant Struggles In



Holiday Hoop Events

TEAMS RUN UP AGAINST TOUGH OPPONENTS


By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
The good news for both
Durant basketball teams was
that they got to play in some
very quality holiday tourna-
ments last week.
But, that also was the
reason their win-loss mark
was not up to par.
Durant's girls entered the
Leto Holiday Classic on a roll,
overcoming a poor season
start to finally get above the
.500 mark. The team opened
with a win over Jefferson, but
then lost its next two games.
Dec. 18 the girls scored a
41-33 win over Jefferson, with
Emilee Hansen scoring 13
points and Kate Williamson
pitching in with 10. Marianela
Aybar and Janae Lancaster
both scored six.
That victory put Durant
into the semifinals, where the
team ran into a powerhouse
team from Bradenton, IMG
Academy.
IMG won 53-14.
IMG's Marisa Gobuty, who
would go on to lead the Pan-
thers past Bloomingdale in
Thursday's championship
game, had more points her-
self, 15, than the entire Cou-
gars team.
For her efforts, Gobuty was
named the tournament MVP.
In consolation effort,
Durant fell, 48-32, to Gaither
Dec. 21. Aybar and Sonia Pitts
scored six points apiece for
Durant, now 6-6 on the


season.
On the boy's side, the only
out-of-state team at the Leto
event was an easy winner.
Concordia Prep from
Wisconsin outscored its three
Tampa Bay area opponents by
an average of 28 points,
including an 87-55 win over
Wesley Chapel in the finals.
Bloomingdale had a
successful week, finishing in
third by topping Palm Beach
Central 63-48.
Durant's boys played in the
Outback Steakhouse Invita-
tional tournament event at
Berkeley Prep, a field loaded
with smaller school powers,
but went 0-2.
"There were no bad teams
in that tournament, that's for
sure," said Cougars head
coach Jeff Shotwell. "And you
know you could be in trouble
when the host schedules you
for its first game."
Indeed, Durant played Ber-
keley, losing 73-48. A.J. Garden
scored 15 for Durant while
Royce Rose and Damon Kola-
nowski added 10 each.
Needing a win Wednesday
to stay in the event, Durant fell
50-34 to Orlando's First Aca-
demy 50-34. It was close at the
half, 27-23, before First Aca-
demy pulled away.
In the final, Bishop Verot
from Fort Myers defeated
Providence Christian out of
Jacksonville.
Newsome ended up finish-
ing fourth, falling to Berkeley
Prep 76-62.


1 STILL SUSPENDED

AFTER BRAWL

By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
They are still missing a val-
uable member of the team,
but the Plant City Raiders
aren't stretched nearly as thin
as they thought they would be
this week.
All but one player has been
reinstated to the boys basket-
ball team by the Florida High
School Athletics Association
after investigating the Dec. 15
incident in which a fight that
broke out on the court in Plant
City, cutting short the Plant
City-Brandon game leaving all
10 starters, five from each team,
under indefinite suspension.
Brandon's team also lost a
player as a result of the fight.
It was concluded that only
the two players involved in
starting the on-court incident,
one each from Brandon and
Plant City, should have their
suspensions upheld.
The rest of the players
involved have been cleared to
play.
One conclusion from the


investigation is obvious: the
FHSAA realized most of the
damage was done by the fans
that rushed the Plant City gym
floor and turned the melee
into a fiasco.
'Plant City will be without
Denzel Drone, one of its top
inside players, for six weeks.
Drone can return as the post-
season is getting started.
Brandon's Mike Brown is
suspended as well.
There was uncertainty as to
how many players Plant City
would have available for last
week's McGrady Shootout in
Auburndale.
With the near-full squad the
Raiders went 1-1, first losing
to Miami Carol City then beat-
ing South Florida Christian
Prep 54-40.
This week the Raiders are
back in Polk County at a six-
team tournament where half
the entrants are smaller
schools including host McKeel
Academy of Lakeland.
Plant City plays Zephryhills
Thursday at 9 p.m.. with the
winner advancing to the cham-
pionship game Friday at 7.
Plant City resumes its
regular season next week
having lost just twice so far.


Plant Citys Roster


Nearly Full Again

SHARP CUTS


Bowl Bound


There's not much in the
way of prep sports going on
this week, but there are plenty
of bowl games.
No, this is not where the
trendy, making fun of the
bowl games begins. I think
we're past the point of
wondering why there are so
many bowls, and why there
isn't a playoff.
I mean, people make fun of
bowl games that have spon-
sors none of us will ever know
anything about. The R&L
Carriers New Orleans Bowl,
anyone? Or, perhaps a trip to
the PetroSun Independence
Bowl?
But, then again the unori-
ginal titles such as the New.
Mexico Bowl also get made
fun of.
The bowl games are always
going to be there, and for that
reason companies will always
be willing to cough up lots of
money to get their name on
one.
So if I can be so bold, let's
just skip that part and go
straight to my suggestion for
what would be the perfect
playoff system in college
football.
The main complaint from
those few who don't think a
playoff system is the way to
go mind you, every other
single sport in Division I
college sports has a playoff
system is that it would take
too much time to accomplish.


Football teams, unlike
basketball teams, can't play
three games in as many days,
or in two weeks, for that
matter. But, by the time the
Gators meet Ohio State for
the national title five weeks
will have passed since Florida
played, and add two weeks to
that for the Buckeyes. So I
think we can manage a
playoff schedule here.
.Keep in mind through all
of this: only a couple of
teams will be "put out" by
having to play extra weeks,
and something tells me the
pursuit of a national champi-
onship will get the teams
through it all. Think about
the NCAA basketball tourna-
ment (which I have my ideas
on as well, but that's another
story) and try and come up
with a story where a team
that has progressed to the
Final Four is complaining
about how long the season
has dragged on.
Whether or not there
should be a football playoff
doesn't seem to be much of
an argument anymore. The
big question is: how many
teams?
I hear some four-team
models, but that's not
enough. Teams like USC and
Wisconsin are good enough
to get a shot. Eight might
make sense, but I say go with
12, for two main reasons.
That's where you can


DAREK
SHARP


reasonably draw the line from
teams that have a legit chance
to win it all, and those just
filling up space.
The other reason is it allows
the very top teams an advan-
tage of having a bye week.
Needing to win three games
for the championship is much
easier than four, but those
teams ranked 5-12 will
probably be more than
grateful for the chance.
How to arrive at the 12
.teams is so easy it's silly. Just
use the BCS! That's the funny
thing. What BCS stands for is
Bowl Championship Series
and it can still be very
applicable.
The rankings set the teams,
though you can't just take the
top 12 in order. The six BCS
conference champions all
make the playoffs (see,
utilizing the existing system
sort of), meaning that Ohio
State, Florida, USC, Louisville,
Oklahoma and Wake Forest
all get in. The other six "wild
card" teams are the six most
highly ranked, and so this
year we'd be looking at No. 3
Michigan, No. 4 LSU, No. 7


Wisconsin, No. 8 Boise State,
No. 9 Auburn and No. 11
Notre Dame.
Fair enough?
Wake Forest is the lowest
rated of the conference
champs and they are 14th, so
the only teams with a beef at
all are the 12th and 13th
teams, Arkansas and West
Virginia.
Oh well. Arkansas shoul-
d've beaten Florida and the
Mountaineers got beat at.
home by USF. See how easy
this is?
The other twist is that none
of the non-conference
champions can get a bye, so
sorry Michigan and LSU. You
have to play that first week
when Ohio State, Florida,
USC and Louisville are
kicking back.
The match-ups would thus
be Michigan-Wake Forest,
LSU-Notre Dame, Wisconsin-
Auburn and Oklahoma-Boise.
Those games would be
"regular" games with the
higher seed getting to play in
its home stadium. The
winners of those games
advance to the quarterfinals,
and that's where the "big"
bowls join the picture.
We can all agree that the
"Big Four" bowls are the
Orange, Sugar, Rose and
Fiesta. That means once every
four years one of them hosts
the national title game, the
semifinals go to two of the
other three, and the fourth
gets to "sit out" by hosting a
quarterfinal. The other three
quarterfinals will also go on a
rotating basis to the bigger


bowls like the Gator, Outback
and Capital One. Since it can't
be a Florida-only playoff we'll
also include the Cotton,
Holiday, Sun and Chick-fil-A
(which can't be played on a
Sunday) in the rotation.
That leaves almost two
dozen of the other bowls for
teams like Troy and East
Carolina to enjoy (and
seriously, you'd still have
some serious teams involved
not in the playoff).
Granted, after all this we'd
probably still have Ohio State
and Florida playing in the
finals, but this way teams like
Michigan, Louisville and USC
all get a fair shake.
Remember, the week
Florida was playing Western
Carolina, Michigan was
taking on Ohio State. Should
Michigan be punished for
that?
I really don't know how it
would play out with those
teams; maybe LSU is your
champ, or Boise State? Both
deserve the chance and that
of course is the whole point.
If you too have put this
much thought into it and
don't want that time to be
one big waste, e-mail your
suggestions my way (dsharp-
@mediageneral.com). We'll
pass them on to the NCAA,
which I'm sure will get right
on it.
All right, it's time to splash
on some cologne and get
ready for the Brut Sun Bowl.
