IN.HI


By TONY MARRERO
tmarrero@medlageneraLcom :
A lot has changed in the strawberry-
growing business since Ron Wetherington
took over the family farm in Dover in
1956.
Back then, 10 acres was considered a
good-sized operation. At that time, the
now-standard practice of putting plastic
over the plant beds had yet to catch on.
And there was no time-release fertilizer or
drip irrigation.
Two things, however, haven't changed,
Wetherington says: growing berries, and
farming in general, is still a challenge and
a gamble. And you have to have it in your
blood to roll the dice.

thing you've-
had to have

LAW ENFORCEMENT


Police Department Recommended For State -National Recognition


OFFICIAL ACCREDITATION
SCHEDULED IN FEBRUARY
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediageneral.com
The Plant City Police Depart-
ment has been unconditionally
recommended for certification in
Florida by the Commission for
Florida Law Enforcement Accre-
ditation as a professional police
agency achieving high standards


for its complete operation.
By passing the three-day, on-
site exam during the week of Nov.
15, the department also qualifies
to receive national recognition
status through the Commission
on Accreditation for Law Enforce-
ment Agencies.
The official certification will be
presented to the department Feb.
9 in Kissimmee.
"We are very pleased that this
long-term goal has been
achieved," said Police Chief Bill


McDaniel. "Passing state and
national standards for a law
enforcement agency shows that
we are doing all that we can to
provide the community with a
top-level police department.
Every member of the department
participated in this effort. This is
something that we have all
worked hard to achieve. I am
ecstatic."
McDaniel said the city and the
department have been preparing
for the accreditation since 1996.


Each step, from self-evaluation to
peer review, public assessment
and finally an on-site evaluation
was a test for the department.
"We have shown to the accre-
diting association that our
department is highly trained in
all policing aspects, from record
keeping to work in the field,"
McDaniel said.

Publisher Working 'In The Field'


KAREN BERRY DEVELOPED
AGRICULTURAL MAGAZINE
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@medlageneral.com
A Plant City woman who has worked in
advertising sales for about 12 years, creat-
ing and developing accounts for several
local publications, including The Courier,
has struck out on her own with an agricul-
ture magazine named In The Fipld.
Karen Berry, a Plant City High graduate
from 1983, and a Walden Lake resident,
decided to publish and market her own
magazine during the last few months, she
said.
"For the longest time I have been
thinking about doing a magazine
designed to represent the people and
businesses in Hillsborough County,"
Berry said. "In the beginning I wasn't sure
what the selected market would be. But
around April when all the fields were
green and blooming with crops, it hit
me."
In The Field will be published monthly,
with stories by and about people and
things in the agricultural community. The
first issue, for November, is out, and will
be followed monthly by direct mail and
over-the-counter sales at stores and busi-
nesses around Hillsborough County.
"The first issue count is 20,000 copies,"
Berry said. "Half of those were mailed to a
list of companies and individuals
involved in the agriculture industry. The
rest will be available in as many places as
we can identify. Hopefully, the numbers
will grow as we go along."
The November cover story is dedicated
to 82-year-old rancher Ed Varn. A feature
story, written by Karen's father, Al Berry,
who is the editor in chief of the publica-
tion, highlights the promising career in
farming of:Jonathon Goff, a 19-year-old
FFA member living and.working in Dover.
Other stories profile teachers, students,
businesses, the Dover Research Center,
the Hillsborough County Extension and
other articles designed to interest the
agriculture community.
"Most of the stories in the first issue
were centered around Plant City," Karen
Berry said. "We wanted to stick with what
we know. I think it turned out well. Later,
as we develop contacts throughout the
county, we will have more diverse sub-
jects and cover more ground."
Recipes, growing tips, agricultural
information and an event calendar is
presented in the magazine with the

appropriate number of advertisements
geared toward the general and agricul-
tural public.
"Advertisement dollars will be the
expected measuring stick for our suc-
cess," Karen Berry said. "Ad sales have
been my biggest single interest for the last
dozen years. The response so far has been


tremendous. We sold the first issue with
only a concept. Now that we have a pub-
lished product, I am excited about the
possibilities."
Al Berry is just as optimistic.

Foot Swefling on Long Flights
It is not uncommon for your feet to
swell because of inactivity during
airline travel. Most of your time is
spent buckled in your seat with your
feet on the floor. Walking forces fluid
back up your legs, without it, your
feet may swell. To relieve swelling,
get up and move around if possible
and elevate your legs after the flight.
You can also rotate your ankles and
wear support hose.
If it persists, get medical attention.
It may be due to a serious problem
like a blood clot (especially if there is
pain and swelling in only one leg).

Attempted murder
A Plant City man was arrested and
charged with attempted murder on
Thanksgiving Day after he allegedly slit
his. wife's throat while driving in the
family car, police said.
Froilan Alonso Cortez, 32, was driving
near Park Road and James L. Redman
Parkway along with his wife and two chil-
dren when an argument broke out. Cortez
is accused of taking a knife from his
pocket and cutting his wife's throat,
police said. The wife's name was not
being released by police.
She sustained a puncture wound to the
right arm and a 6-inch cut on her throat,
said Plant City Police Sgt. Jim Shultz..
Police were notified of the assault just
before 7 p.m. after Cortez dropped his
wife off at South Florida Baptist Hospital
to seek treatment. Police went to the
Cortez home and arrested him later that
day. The two children; both younger than
10, were unharmed..They were released
into the care of relatives, Shultz said.
As of press time, Cortez was being held
at the Hillsborough County Orient Road
Jail on $100,000 bail.

Drug arrest
A 27-year old Plant City man was
arrested Nov. 25 and charged with traf-


picking in cocaine, possession of mari-
juana and resisting arrest with violence,
police officials said.
Alvin Shaw, 607 Spruce St., was stopped
by police at 4:54 p.m. after passing
another vehicle in a no-passing zone near
Maryland Avenue and Alsobrook Street,
said police spokesman Sgt. Jim Shultz.
After stopping, Shaw fled on foot. Officer
Keith Dougherty struggled with Shaw on
Hitchcock Street, but Shaw was able to
break free, Shultz said. Officer John Gil-
more continued the chase and followed
Shaw over a chain-link fence surrounding
the Jack Hicks Steel yard near Collins and
Alsobrook streets.
Police said Shaw was carrying a small
quantity of crack cocaine. A search of
Shaw's car produced 189 grams of cocaine
and about 262 grams of marijuana, Shultz
said.
Shaw was taken to a Hillsborough
County jail, charged and released the
same day after paying a $54,500 bond.

Cars crash, then hit by train
Two cars involved in a traffic accident
and stranded on a railroad track Nov. 23
were struck by a passing train, police
said.
About 8:15 p.m., a 1984 Ford Tempo
driven by Kenneth Scantleburry, 106 S.


Gordon St., and a 1997 Mercury Moun-
taineer driven by Paul Gonzalez Falcon,
1505 Wakefield Drive in Brandon, were
involved in a traffic crash at Collins and
Laura streets, said police Sgt. Jim Wat-
kins.
The cars came to rest on the CSX rail-
road tracks and were still there when
police and fire-rescue personnel arrived
about five minutes later. A passenger in
the Mountaineer was about to be treated
for minor injuries when signal lights at
the crossing started flashing to indicate
an approaching train.
Officer David Hancock, Fire-Rescue
Capt. Rick Sullivan, firefighter Dustin Hill
and reserve firefighter Amanda Turbyfill
forced the passenger side door open and
removed Petrin Lopez, 65, of 307 E.
Tomlin St., from the passenger side of the
Mountaineer.
The train engineer, Ronnie Williams, of
Tampa, was unable to see the cars due to
a 90-degree curve just east of the intersec-
tion, officials said. The train, limited to 25
mph on the curve, struck both vehicles
and forced the Tempo into a police
cruiser, causing minor damage.
The cause of the traffic accident is
under investigation, police officials said.
Those injured were treated at the scene
and released, police officials said.

OP INION


T he television chatter
people are having a ball
L analyzing the recent
election. I can sum it up in
one sentence: More people
liked, agreed with and trusted
George Bush than liked,
agreed with and trusted John
Kerry. End of story.
Unless you happen to be a
professional in the business of
managing political cam-
paigns, no further analysis is
needed.
It is useful to knock down
some of the canards that
always arise in the post-
election bull sessions. One is
that the "Christian Right,"
whatever that is, elected Bush.
Nonsense. Christians and
non-Christians voted for both
men. This nation is not
divided into Republican
Christians and Democratic
pagans.
Furthermore, one has to
remember that the graphic
map showing red and blue
states reflects the Electoral
College vote, which is a
winner-take-all system. In
other words, plenty of people
in the blue states voted for
Bush, and plenty of people in
the red states voted for Kerry.
Politically, we are not as
divided as the chattering class
seems to think. If you look at
the past four presidential
elections, the two major

parties are even. The over-
whelming majority of Ameri-
.cans don't set their britches
on fire over elections. The fact
that you vote for Tweedledee
and I vote for Tweedledum
doesn't mean we can't still be
friends and have a beer
together.
It's only the ideologues -
who, thank God, remain a
small minority -who think
the world ends if their side
loses an election.
And that brings up another
canard, that this election was
unduly marked by hatred. I
never saw any. True, some
people passionately disliked
Bush and some passionately
disliked Kerry, but that's

Keep Klein
column coming
I very much enjoy the
"From New York" articles
by Rebecca Klein. I, too,
grew up in the Plant City
area, more specifically at
Springhead.
Rebecca's column in
the Oct. 28 paper brought
back a lot of good memo-
ries for me. She talked
about her grandparents
and their farm at Spring-
head. Some of my
happiest moments
growing up in the Spring-
head community were
spent at that very farm,
because Rebecca's
mother and I were best
friends all through our
school years (and still
are) and I was always
treated like one of the
kids by her wonderful
parents.
Although I haven't
lived there since the mid-
1950s, I still consider
Plant City home. Keep up
the good articles,
Rebecca. They are very
much appreciated.

Say you saw it in
The Courier


A COURIER CHAT



The Rev. Dean Pfeffer, slimmer man of God


The Rev. Dean Pfeffer knew it was time
for a radical change.
Two years ago, the pastor of Hope
Lutheran Church on Park Road had
reached his heaviest point ever. "Over 300
pounds," is all he'll say.
It was a far cry from the lean Dean who
once ran marathons, the last of which was
in New York in 1985.
"Even the 'fat' pants were getting too
tight," he says. ,
Now, after nearly two years of disci-
plined eating and exercise, Pfeffer, 45, is
more than 100 pounds lighter and only 20
pounds heavier than when he came to
Plant City from Sebring more than eight
years ago. He lost 13 inches from his
waist, dropped four neck sizes and almost
five full jacket sizes.
It's been a family effort, he said. His
wife, Liz, has also lost 100 pounds. The
couple have three children, Kristen,
Daniel and Jason.
When he stopped by The Courier office
recently looking even slimmer than the
last time we saw him, we had to ask him
to sit down for a chat about his
transformation.
Why did you decide to lose the weight?
Dr. Steve Smith (the family's physician)
looked back at what I weighed when I
moved here and said, "Dean, this is what
you weighed then. This is what you weigh
now." That's all he had to say.
How did you do it?
Just sensible eating. No more bagels
and cream cheese for breakfast. My
morning meal is a container of yogurt.
What were your eating habits before?
I just ate whatever. I didn't care. And I


TONY MARRERO/Staff photo

Church holds the pants he used to wear
more than 100 pounds ago. Pfeffer said
Hope's congregation helped motivate him,
pledging money toward his upcoming
mission trip to Guatemala for every
pound he lost.
ate whenever. Now it's down to a sensible
routine.
Were there things that you totally cut
out of your diet?
I've not had fast food in over two years.
I've not had a French fry in two years.
Maybe I'll drink soda on the weekend,
whereas before I didn't care.
Any food still a weakness?
I guess I'm one of those unusual
(people). I don't care for sweets, and I
don't like chocolate. That's my blessing
now.


What's your exercise you routine?
I started walking, and now I'm back to
running. I run 45 miles a week, and
weight train probably three days a week
at 45 minutes to an hour a clip. This is all
before I go to work. A big help is my run-
ning partner because we motivate and
push each other.

What else helped to motivate you?
The congregation got behind me on
this. We developed a program called,
"Losing for Missions." People sponsored
by the pound for me to lose. We've col-
lected 800 dollars for my mission trip to
Guatemala in summer of '06.

What do you people say who haven't
seen you in awhile?
Winter (congregation) members come
back down and ask me what happened to
our pastor. One couple just absolutely did
not know it was me. I got a kick out of it.

What's going on with your wardrobe
now?
I've had to buy all new stuff. For Pastor
Appreciation Month the congregation
gave me a gift certificate to buy new
clothes.

Any other goals?
I'll be running Disney's half marathon
Jan 9. I'm only half stupid yet.
What would you say to people who
struggle with their weight?
If I can do it, you can do it. It's a matter
of life or death.

FAMILY


LIVING


BETTY'S PLACE


I've just returned to New
York City from spending the
Thanksgiving weekend at the
beach on Longboat Key with
my husband. Before that, we
were in Plant City for Thanks-
giving day with my parents.
We didn't do much more
than eat, sleep and lay
around. Now I'm on a plane
heading back to the city and
my relaxed, slightly-tanned
shoulders are already begin-
ning to tighten while my
stomach has that familiar
anxious feeling I only get
when I return to New York.
So, why do I keep coming
back?
Living in New York is not
easy. My husband and I call
the worst of it "fighting for a
hot bagel," which includes:

restaurant, a parking space
on the street, an apartment, a

a movie ticket, a seat at the

the Sunday Times, a taxi at 5
p.m. on a Friday, a taxi in the
rain, a taxi when I have to
take my dog to the vet, at 5

any kind of shopping done on
the weekends, a good
housekeeper, someone to
watch your dog when you
want to get out of town for a
few days at Thanksgiving.
It can be exhausting. But
not everything is like that.
Truth is, some of the best
things to do in New York
don't take any effort at all.
Like running into a friend
on the street just when you
most need to see a friend.
Watching the Queen Mary II

Excellence is the name of
the game for citizen-scholar-
athletes Caroline Evans and
Clay Bavinger.
These two Plant City High
School students have been
nominated for the coveted

school seniors who best
exemplify a supreme citizen-
scholar-athlete.
Caroline and Clay, nomi-
nated by former Principal
Buddy Raburn, have 5.0-plus
grade point averages. Caroli-
ne's accomplishments
include four years on the
varsity swim team and as a
member of the Civinette
Service Club, where she
served as president.
Clay is a National Merit
Scholar semifinalist, a
member of the varsity tennis
team, and was the top youth
fundraiser for the American
Cancer Society's Relay for
Life.

Special to The Courier
Caroline Evans and Clay Bavinger excel both on the field and in
the classroom.


farm boy David Hawthorne is
between jobs, and recently
took time to speak to the
Plant City Kiwanis Club.
David, the only person I
know who can say "job well
done" when the company he
works for lets him go, is what
the corporate world calls a
turnaround man or specialist
in corporate rehabilitation.
He's as comfortable in a
London banker's board room
as he is on his ranch near
Knights Station (good thing
David uses brain instead of
brawn in those high-powered
board rooms you should see
what he and his chainsaw did
to the 17 massive oak trees
that fell on his property
during the last storm. Need-
less to say, they are no longer
a threat to man, animal or
environment).
He has been CEO, CFO and
chairman of the board for
public and private companies


all over the country, some
with as few as 10 employees
and others with as many as
50,000. Don't let the farm boy
image fool you he has an
innate quick sense how to
pull a struggling company out
of trouble. (Of course, that
doesn't apply to being quick
on his feet when he's up
against a Japanese taxi. On a
trip to Tokyo, for client Tower
Records, he failed to pull his
foot out of the way of a taxi.
Miraculously, an X-ray
showed no broken bones).
He and his wife, Vicki, have
renovated 13 historic build-
ings downtown. At the
Kiwanis meeting, I'm told he
threw out some innovative
ideas on how to keep Plant
City a unique community.

husband actually mentioned
putting ours up before I did,
and then to the maestoso
(and fortissimo) sound of
Handel's Messiah coming
from a neighbor's house, he
cheerfully got the ladder and
went to work.
When all was sung and
done, he sat on the porch
swing with his guitar, enjoy-
ing his handiwork. I hope God
is enjoying his handiwork: the
families and individuals who
are passing on the real
meaning of Christmas.
I know churches are

Concept Considered To Assist Annexation


PLANNING COMMISSION;
EXPLORING IDEA
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@mediagenerai.com .
'Hillsborough County and Plant'City
are exploring the possibility of creating
an agreement that could reduce some
of the difficulty involved in annexing
property.
Tentatively referred to as the Urban
Reserve Area, the concept would create
a buffer zone around the city where
certain development densities would
be restricted.
This would defer the construction of
properties where homes are restricted
to one dwelling per acre, as is normally


the case in the unincorporated
county.
It would also lessen the burden of an
expanding city, easing the cost of run-
ning sewer and water systems into
newly developed land.
The concept is under development
by members of the, Hillsborough
County City-County Planning Com-
mission and is in its infancy, said Mark
Hudson, a city-county' planner who
works exclusively with Plant City.
"The issue is in its embryonic stage,"
Hudson said. "O,ur office-Will talk with
the city manager;and members of the
Plant City commission soon after
Thanksgiving. -
"Those discussions could lead to a
mutual concept that will help the city
and the county deal With problems


related to private property being vol-
untarily annexed into the city.
"An interlocal agreement between
the city and the county could assist
both parties in approving the develop-
ment of properties and the infrastruc-
ture needed to support such
development."
A resolution requesting the develop-
ment of the JUrban Reserve Area was
approved Oct. 2.5 by the City-County
Planning Commission The report was
presented to the' Plant City commis-
sion in brief Nov. 8.
In effect, the reserve area would be a
zone outside the city limits where
development plazs would be restricted
if they might crate an infrastructure
problem for .thjbHty some time in the
future. Such,a buffer zone has not been


drawn at this time. And the size of the
area has not been determined.
"The city-county commission is
updating the land development plan
for Plant City," said City Manager
David Sollenberger. "As that update is
being formulated, the idea was put for-
ward to consider the development of
an urban reserve area. The concept has
merit. The city-county staff is
interested. And we have nothing to
lose by seeing what they can come up
with."
According to the report, Plant City
has grown in population by several
thousand people during the last couple
of years. It is also expected to grow by
another 25 percent during the next 20

ANNEX
Continued From Page 12
years.
"The city has added another 1,000
acres of development through vol-
untary annexation during the last 12
months," Hudson said. "That is just a
small part of what is expected during
the next decade. Developing an
interlocal agreement between the
city and county would simplify some
of the transition."
Such an interlocal agreement does
not presently exist in Hillsborough
County.
"I am confident such agreements
exist in other locations. But I am
unable to tell you where those might
be. The urban reserve concept was
floated in this area back in 1989, but


it never caught on," Hudson said. "At
this point we haven't even agreed on
the name of the concept."
The resolution presented to the
city commission Nov. 8 suggested
such a plan could "improve the plan-
ning and phasing of public facilities,
while discouraging the premature
speculation and conversion of par-
cels to more intense land use plan
categories."
"We have a long way to go with
this concept," said Rob Anders, the
Plant City director of planning and
zoning.
Anders said there could be some
benefits in developing such a plan,
but doesn't know if the city and
county could agree on the concept in
the long run. He said the state must
also become involved at some point.
"If some kind of urban area agree-


ment becomes part of the compre-
hensive plan, then it will become
more than simple guidelines. I don't
know if we are ready to do that,"
Anders said.
"Low density residential sprawl is
something the city and the county
want to avoid," Hudson said.
Infrastructure costs for water and
sewer, roads and other utilities are
all a part of annexation, city officials
point out. Having developers con-
tribute to the cost, beyond impact
fees, will be a necessary part of
affordable growth, they said.

future growth," Hudson said. "An
interlocal agreement between the
city and county can help that vision
of responsible growth come to

I've said it before NYC is really
just a crazy quilt of communities
held together by streets and
avenues. Within each, lives
intersect and connect every day.
And it's in those interactions that I
continue learning more about
myself and my city and why I stay.


There is a part of me that will
always love the country. But,
despite the doubts and thoughts of
leaving, it's this city that keeps me
off the sidelines and makes me
take part in my own life.
So I guess you could call this my,
"Why I Live in New York List of
Things I'm Thankful For." It's the
hard things that make the good
things so great in this city and the
good things that make New York
City one of the greatest places to
live in the world.

over the phone and in person, to sell the idea
of In The Field to local businesses," he said.
"Every business I talked with took out an ad.
The need for such an informative magazine
is apparent to a lot of people in this county.
Karen, and the staff on the magazine, will
deliver a very useful product."
"Other publications available in Hills-
borough County are designed as news mag-
azines," she said. "We are going to
concentrate on goods and services in the
agricultural community. Our features and
profiles will identify people in the commu-
nity who are often overlooked, but play an
important role in the continued success for
ag-related businesses in the county."
The November issue contains an open
letter to the community from B. Shawn
Crocker, president of the county's farm
bureau. In the letter, Crocker endorses In
The Field, calling it a necessary publication
and a "positive voice for our industry."
Crocker points out that while Hillsborough
County is predominately urban, its largest
single industry is agriculture.
"It is time to reconnect the urban popula-
tion and the agricultural community. It is
vital to provide a better understanding of the
factors that influence opinions within
them," Crocker wrote. "We expect this mag-
azine to become a tool used to educate the
urban audiences as well as offer opportuni-
ties for relationship development within the
agricultural industry."
Berry is using lists provided by the Straw-
berry Growers Association, the Hillsborough
County Farm Bureau and the county Green
Belt Association to deliver her publication to
the intended audience. In time story ideas
will be developed in Lutz, Wimauma, Rus-
kin, Pinecrest and Dover, as well as Plant
City.
"We want to cover the entire county. And
we will develop stories that will interest a
wide variety of people throughout the
county," she said.


You tear it up and we'll fix it up.

The best, though, and

in my house capable of
pulling in some serious
money, is happily revealed
below the mantel. I kid you
not, and this is possibly even
more dramatic than the

The truly bizarre part about
all this is the fact that I would
undoubtedly garner some
serious offers if I took photo-
graphs, posted the Fab Four
on eBay and asked interested
parties to submit bids. There
are people in this country of
ours who would willingly cart
off my stone fireplace and
reassemble it somewhere for
public exhibition. My guess
would be either California or
South Florida.
That's where my new
"weird tax" would come in.
Think of the revenue poten-


tial if we simply applied a levy
to whackos. We could impose
a sliding scale, a kind of
Richter measurement recog-
nizing increments of cultural
lunacy.
The folk on Capitol Hill
might well tariff themselves
right out of office. Imagine
California toning down to the
degree that it eventually
scared itself into becoming a
red state. Before long the NBA
would be known as "The
Sport that Gives Back." The
NFL alone could support an
entire branch of the federal
government.

the Florida Farm Bureau. He has
served on a host of county and state
committees, and championed agricul-
ture causes in front of Hillsborough's
county commission and the Florida
Legislature.
"He's been a real asset to the ag
community," said Carl Loop Jr., presi-
dent of the Florida Farm Bureau, who
has known Wetherington for more
than 20 years. "He's one of those guys
who is looked up to and respected."
Still, Wetherington, who said he was
"totally flabbergasted" by the Hall of
Fame award, said berry growers in
general deserve the honor.
"I admire all growers because of the
tremendous sacrifice they make to get
into the business," he said.

Berries in the blood
In the late 1800s, Wetherington's
great-great-grandfather, W.O. Pass,
named the tiny community of Sydney.
He was the postmaster, the depot
agent and school board all at once,
and still found time to grow strawber-
ries.
Pass would take a horse-drawn
wagon loaded berries just picked from
the field to the nearby railroad tracks.
He flagged down the train and loaded
the berries, packed with ice, for their
journey to New York.
Wetherington's father, Dalton, later
took over the family land at what is
now, Dover and Wooten roads and
would also pack ice-filled crates of ber-
ries onto the trains, bound for points
north. Dalton also ranr a filling station
at State Road 574 and Forbes Road and
young Ron would often spend time
there.
Once the family, started setting
orange groves in the 1940s, however, "I
spent more time in the groves behind a

Wetherington, second from left, is flanked by U.S. Rep Adam Putnam, left, and

hoe than in the garage," Wetherington
said.
Dalton Wetherington gave his son
his own 6-acre plot to work while Ron
was still attending Turkey Creek High
School, a strawberry school that dis-
missed students in the winter to work
in the fields.
Back then, Ron could often be seen
sporting his blue corduroy FFA jacket.
He showed livestock and earned the
organization's prestigious State and
American Farmer degrees, which
combined criteria including the crops
raised and community service work.
When Ron graduated in 1956, his
father turned the farm, with its 25 acres


of berries and vegetables, over to him.
Two years later, he married his high
school sweetheart, Faye Butler, who
grew up within a couple of miles of
him and came from the same kind of
agricultural stock.
"When I went to pick her up, I knew
where to find her out in the barn,
helping her daddy load produce onto
the truck," he said. "I'd get up there
and help her so we could get away."
The couple have three children,
Rhonda, Lane and Shayla. Today, Lane
is the sixth generation to work the
same family land.
Wetherington said he realized at a
young age how important it was to


have several sources of income
because of farming's unpredictability.
"I saw right then I didn't want all my
eggs in one basket," he said. "I wanted
to diversify. The risk was just too
great."
Wetherington has had his hand in a
number of ventures to try to minimize
that risk. He ran a tropical fish farm on
the property for 12 years that at one
point boasted 379 ponds. He ended
that venture after a decline in the pop-
ularity of the fish saw sales take a dive
and the infamous freeze of 1989 killed
off much of his stock.
He also co-owned a Ford tractor
dealership from 1960 to 1972.
The family continues to work its
citrus groves, though the acreage has
decreased to 20 from a total of 70
acres.

A united voice
Strawberry growers can be a skepti-
cal bunch, Wetherington said.
Back in the 1980s, it took some work
to convince growers that it would be in
their best interest to join the Florida
Strawberry Growers Association,
which had formed in 1982. Hinton
recalls the role Wetherington played in
talking growers into it and in guiding
the organization as one its first presi-
dents. ,
"What Ron did was provide us with a
lot of credibility," he said. "He was
well-known in the community and
respected as a leader, so he gave us
good, long coattails to work with in
terms of showing what we could do for
the community."
Eventually, Wetherington said,
growers saw that, "It's much cheaper
to pay dues and have lobbying done
for you than to hire a lawyer to protect
yourself."
That might be more obvious today
than ever before, as Hinton and the

association are leading the charge to
delay the government's phase out of
methyl bromide, a "magic bullet" pes-
ticide, until a better replacement is
found.
It's that lobbying that Wetherington
has come to love, he said. As a former
president and current director of the
Farm Bureau and a member of numer-
ous state and local advisory commit-
tees, he has stayed at the forefront of
issues that affect agriculture the most
land use rights, water restrictions and
pesticide regulations but said he tries
to do so quietly.
"My main goal is to work behind the
scenes and take care of an issue before
it becomes a problem," he said.
Wetherington is working to encour-
age local government to establish a
more "hands-off" policy when it comes
to agriculture and land use. The people
making and enforcing the policies are
out of touch with the real-world, detri-
mental effects on agricultural land-
owners, he said.
The issue hits close to home for him
- he is in the county's "nonproposed

growth area." which can limit the value
of land by making it impossible to
develop. Farmers should have the right
to develop their land, he said.
"Don't tell me I can't do it, put on
some guidelines for me to meet," he
said.
Wetherington sits on the board for
Florida Farm Credit, which provides
loans and other funding to help farm-


ers flourish. Heosajd he is proud of the
.positive -role the institution has
played.
"We have an ear for the business
they're in because we've been there,"
he said.

Watching kids grow
But he said he is most pleased when
he sees how a youngster grows through
involvement with the FFA. It did the
same for him, he said, when he was
once a "shy, timid kid."
Robert Raulerson, past president of
the FFA Foundation, the group's fund-'
raising arm and a lifelong, friend of
Wetherington, said Wetherington's
political connections and love for the
organization combine to make him an
influential advocate. Wetherington is
credited with helping the Florida Leg-
islature see the importance of support-
ing the group financially, Raulerson
said, evidenced by its contribution to
fund for the FFA's Leadership Training
Center in Haines City. Also, Wethe-
rington encouraged the Farm Bureau
to fund construction of a student villa
at the center.
"He's opened doors that probably
would not have been opened had it not
been for him," Raulerson said.


Raulerson said Wetherington's true
value is evident in his interaction with
the students themselves, whether it's
judging a livestock contest or taking
them on a tour of Tallahassee.
"He has a great rapport with the
kids," he said. "They know him, they
love him, they hug on him. They jusi
really appreciate all that he's done."
Wetherington is active at his church,
serving as a deacon at First Baptist ol
Dover, and has served as president ol
the Dover Turkey Creek Fire Depart-
ment and the Dover Civic Club Associ-
ation.
Two years ago, Wetherington
received what he said for him was the
"ultimate" honor: the National FFA
gave him an honorary version of the
National Farmer Degree he received as
a high school student in 1958.
Wetherington said he is now "sort ol
retired," but added he would go on
helping farmers and future farmers -
for as long as he could. When asked
about his fondest memories, it's "real
simple," Wetherington said: "to see
these high school kids excel and
become good speakers and go to
become something special.
"It's worth all the effort," he said.

politics. Neither man in this
election was demonized the
way poor Barry Goldwater
and George McGovern were
in their election bids. And
none of our elections in the
20th and 21st centuries
compares in mudslinging and
viciousness with the
presidential campaigns of the
19th century. American
politics has always been a
rough-and-ready game.
Only once in our history
has a presidential election
caused people to go for their
guns, and after 600,000 good
men on both sides died, we
seemed to have learned our
lesson.
The valuable thing about
America is that the losers
don't really lose anything,
except perhaps a few patron-
age jobs. John Kerry will go
right on enjoying his good life
in his five houses and, after
sober reflection, will probably
decide it is just as well that it
is Bush and not he who has to
figure out a way to get out of
Iraq. The rest of us are the
same after an election as we
were before, regardless of the
outcome.
It is to the credit of the
American people that their
families, jobs and local
communities are more
important to them than
national elections. The cable-
television media, because
they have to talk so much, get
obsessed with national
elections. Most Americans
don't. Most of us are glad this
one is over.


Finally, it's useful to
remember that neither the
Republican Party nor the
Democratic Party is mono-
lithic. Mr. Bush is likely to
have trouble with liberal
Republicans voting with
Democrats, while the Demo-
crats might see some of their
few remaining conservatives
side on occasion with the
Republicans.
With our system of three
separate and independent
branches of government,
senators and representatives
are not beholden to the
president or to their political
party. Their allegiance is to
their constituents and to the
Constitution.
That's proven to be a far
better system than the
parliamentary model that
most of the world's democra-
cies are stuck with. In the
parliamentary model, the
legislative and executive
branches are the same. This
means the country can lurch
from socialism to capitalism,
or vice versa. In most coun-
tries, it encourages a multi-
plicity of parties, and many
countries are always gov-
erned by coalition govern-
ments.
Our system is by far more
stable. We sometimes
complain that there is little
real difference between
Republicans and Democrats,
but this similarity at least
prevents upheavals. No
matter who wins, we get
neither Utopia nor Armaged-
don. And I like that.

sion, said 116 Florida law
enforcement agencies are
accredited by the commis-
sion.
"Accreditation means that
the law enforcement agency
has been placed under a
microscope," Moody said.
"During the process, a peer
review of the standards and
procedures used by the
department is examined and
tested. This ensures that the
accredited department is
using the latest law enforce-
ment standards and philoso-


phy in the industry today."
McDaniel said the examin-

in-house equipment, written

ment offices and monitored
staff as they went through

Cougar Invitational Kicks


Off Wrestling Season


Flag football champs


24 TEAMS TO COMPETE
THIS WEEKEND AT DURANT
By LINDA CHION KENNEY
Ichion@mediageneral.com
Wrestling season begins in earn-
est for the Durant Cougars, who this
weekend will host the 9th Annual
Cougar Invitational.
"It's a good testing tournament to
begin the year with," said Dennis
Kitko, who returns for his second
year as the Cougars' head coach. "All
the teams can see where they're at
and where they need to improve."
This year's tournament features
24 teams, including wrestlers from
Alonso, Armwood, Chamberlain,
Hillsborough, Jesuit, Newsome,
Plant, Providence Christian, Sickles,
Temple Heights and Riverview.
Other teams include Gulf Coast,
Haines City, Lakeland, Lakewood
Ranch, Lake Gibson, Lake Wales,
Merritt Island, Moore Haven, New
Smyrna Beach, Riverdale, Sarasota
Riverview and Vero Beach.
Kitko credits the large interest in
the tournament to the growing stat-
ure of the Durant High School wres-
tling program.
"We go out and try to get the good
teams in the area and people
throughout the wrestling world
know us," Kitko said. "Having the
success we had last year, at districts


and regionals, brings people to your
tournament because they want to
wrestle a good team."
Also, Kitko added, "The coaches
and referees enjoy coming to our
tournament because we have such a
big facility and our parents go all out
in providing good hospitality."
As for the upcoming season, Kitko
said he hopes to start the season off
right by winning this weekend. The
competition comes on the heels of
the team's first regular-season
match Dec. 2 against Plant. Last
year, the Cougars were district and
region champs with a 13-2 dual-
meet record.
Kitko, who said he has a strong
team that is becoming "a veteran
team," looks to improve on last
year's success while acknowledging
an undefeated season will be diffi--
cult the Cougars face Brandon
High School Jan. 19. The Eagles hold
the national record for the longest
high school dual-meet winning
streak at 395 straight.
The Cougar Invitational at Durant
High School, 4748 Cougar Path in
Plant City, kicks off Dec. 3 at 3 p.m.
The tournament continues Dec. 4 at
9 a.m. through approximately 5 p.m.
Finals are expected to begin at 6:30
p.m.
Also, the Plant City High School
wrestlers will grapple at the Semi-
nole High School Invitational this
weekend.

Boys High School Basketball


Teams Off To Solid Starts


BOTH PC, DURANT
WIN OPENERS
ByDABEK SHARP
dsharp@mediageneral.com
Coming off losing seasons and
with new coaches the boys basket-
ball teams from Plant City and
Durant are off to a strong start. Both
easily won their season openers
Monday, the first day Hillsborough
County teams could play regular-
season contests.
Jason Brown, a junior in his third
season as Plant City's starting point
guard, took no time in establishing
himself as the Raiders' team leader.
Brown scored 31 points as the Raid-
ers handled Hillsborough, 63-45, at
the Plant City High gym.
It was Gary Meyer's official debut
as Plant City head coach, though the
Raiders played in a preseason tour-
nament at Lake Gibson the week
before.


Jeff Shotwell was also victorious in
his Cougar "sort-of" debut. Shotwell
coached the Durant girls for three
years before taking the Plant City
boys job last season. On Monday,
Durant routed Chamberlain, 70-35.
"The kids played extremely hard.
As long as we played hard, athleti-
cally we will stay competitive," Shot-
well said. "When our execution
improves, we have a chance to be a
nice ball club this year."
Durant had. balanced scoring,
with Pedro Coronado leading the
way with 17 points. Clint McKay
added 12 and Tristan Scott scored
10. Martin Harvey had eight points.
It was somewhat close at halftime
until Durant outscored Chamberlain
25-11 in the third quarter.
Durant is at Leto Thursday night
and has one preholiday district game
next week at Sarasota Riverview.
The Raiders do not play again
until Monday, when they host Whar-
ton.


Winners of the premier division for ages 10 to 12 were the Cowboys. Cowboy
teammates are Mackenzie Ellingsworth, Rocky Ellingsworth III, Luke and Paul
Gibbs, Richard Glorioso, Ralph Goodell, Hannah Kirkwood, Tyler Newkirk,
Dustin Poole, Morgan Schaub and Kael Woods.
