Marti Lofstrom talks with a nurse at Moffitt Cancer Center while she was there for chemotherapy. Lofstrom had a tumor removed
from her breast in June and was receiving her second round of the infusion treatment.


Lofstrom was diag-
nosed with Hodg-
kin's lymphoma in
2000 and her battle
began. In 2006 she
found a lump in her
breast.


A Surgeon Responds:


There's Reason To Smile
Marti Lofstrom's world changed the moment she found a lump in her
breast. With cancer surgery behind-her and ongoing chemotherapy
treatment, her prognosis is good. Her husband, Jerry Lofstrom, writes
of the disease's impact on the family and the power ofprayer:

From Plant City, His Ride Leads To The Hall Of Fame


PLANT CITY The road to
fame sometimes goes back to
Plant City.
Country singer and humor-
ist Mel Tillis will be inducted
into the Country Music Hall of
Fame in Nashville, Tenn., in
October, along with Vince Gill
and Ralph Emery.
As a youngster, Tillis, who
had a stuttering problem,
attended Wilson Elementary
School in Plant City. The man
he credits with changing his
life is the late Plant City folk
artist, Bill Miller, who started
the Miller Candy Company in
the 1940s.
When Tillis got out of the
Air Force, Miller interviewed
young Tillis for a job. Tillis
didn't get the job, but Miller
told him he, too, had stut-
tered, and gave him a piece of
paper to read over 10 times
before going to bed.
"It changed my life," the
singer said.
On the paper was written,
"Lord grant me the courage to
change the things I can
change, the serenity to accept
those I cannot change, and


BETTY BRIGGS
Columnist
the wisdom to know the dif-
ference. And God, grant me
the courage to not give up on
what I think is right, even
though I think it is hopeless."
It was that prayer that gave
the young man a "what you
see is what you get" revela-
tion.
Shortly thereafter, Mel
headed to Nashville in a 1949
Mercury with a busted wind-
shield, a wife and 4-month-
old baby, and $29 in his pock-
et.
Tillis, 75, has built a theater
in Branson, Mo., and has been
performing there for eight
years. His daughter Pam, also
an entertainer, was born in
" the little hospital above

PLANT CITY Friday the 13th
was a lucky day for the fifth-

They were chosen by the

Club for an art and conserva-

"We landscaped a common
courtyard area outside the
lunchroom with plants donat-
ed by Harrell's Nursery and

club President Racquel Sturgis


said. "The Juniors cleaned the
area and dug the holes for all
the plants and the youngsters
planted the plants, spread the
mulch in the beds and erected

with flowers and butterflies.

this area."
Interest is high, he said.
"Just by word of mouth we
have been contacted by 120
students who are interested,"
Churchill said. "We plan a
large ad campaign this month
to get the word out."
There will be no tuition fee
for the initial fall 2007 se-
mester courses. Tuition at oth-
er area Christian colleges is
between $300 and $400 per


credit.hour, officials at the new
university said. In the coming
spring semester, it is expected
the cost for classes will be $35
per semester hour. Second-
year costs are expected to be
$70 per credit hour, with grad-
ual increases until the fourth
year of operation when the
rate rises to $200 per semester
hour.
The Rev. Les Keylock, vice
president for academic affairs
at the university, has a dis-,
tinguished career in biblical
studies. He taught at Moody
Bible Institute for 13 years and
recently at Trinity College of
Florida in New Port Richey. He
has served as a pastor and is
considered one of the fore-


"This move toward higher learning in biblical and
religious studies makes this new academic institu-
tion unique in this area. Just by word of mouth we
have been contacted by 120 students who are in-
terested. We plan a large ad campaign this month
to get the word out."
THE REV. RON CHURCHILL
Senior pastor at the First Baptist Church of Plant City and president of
the university's administration and trustees


most authorities in the country
on the Gospels.
"The Evangelical University
and Seminary is interdenom-
inational and will focus on
providing high caliber Chris-
tian training to the local com-
munities," Keylock said.


Robert Westlake, the organi-
zation's treasurer, said Keylock
has been considering a uni-
versity and seminary in the
area for about eight years.
"There is definitely a need
for university-level biblical
studies and seminary educa-


tion in this area," Westlake
said. "Our studies show there
is a market and a large number
of students that would be at-
tracted to the university."
University officials said the
Instructors in the undergradu-
ate program will all have a
minimum of a master's degree
and all instructors in the grad-
uate program will have earned
doctoral degrees.

By JERRY LOFSTROM
Tribune correspondent
PLANT CITY Marti Lofstrom lay still in a chilly hospital room, her arms
tucked under a white hospital blanket, her face blank and numbed by
the prospect of what was about to be said.
Her eyes went to her doctor's face.
"I am sorry, but the pathology report tells us the tumor is cancerous,"
surgeon Bemardo Gonzales said quietly.
My gregarious, devoted wife and the mother of two had breast cancer.
With her raspberry lipstick, rosy cheeks and silky black hair, Marti didn't
appear ill. But the pain was in her eyes.
"What we do about it is something we have to sit down and discuss,"
Gonzales said.
"It's not the kind of emergency that requires something to be done right
away. If you need information, if you want to talk to somebody else, you


I ~ I -








do that. If you want to take a
trip, you have time. It's cer-
tainly not going to spread all
over your body while you're
thinking it over."
Her mother, a child of the -
Great Depression, had always
told her daughter not to cry
over what. she could not
change.
But her mother's advice
meant little to her now.
"I've always wanted to re-
main strong for my family so
I've never had time to cry," she
said. "But this is my time."
She wiped her tears away as
she struggled to cope with the
doctor's report.
"Are you all right?" Gonzales
asked.
"Yes," she said, her voice a
whisper.
"I still look forward to a long
life, happy with the one I
have," Marti said, sitting in the
hospital lounge, dressed and
ready to go home, her eyes
fixed on her hands, folded as if
in prayer.
"I am going to be happy. It
sounds strange, but it'll be
OK," she said. "I will find my
peace knowing God has a plan
for my life and he will take care
of me."
Her mother, Margaret Mer-
cado, recalled her daughter's
will as a child.
"When she was little. there
was no point in spanking her,"
Mercado said. "She would just
look at you and say, 'That
didn't hurt' She was a strong-
minded child who thought she
could overcome anything."
Cancer First Hits In 2000
During our 23 years of mar-
riage, Marti's gende spirit and
warm smile have been a con-
stant. In time-worn family
photos, she is always happy.
But life isn't always fair.
In November 2000, Marti
was diagnosed with Hodgkin's
lymphoma, a cancer of the
immune system. Even after six
rounds of chemotherapy and a
good prognosis she never felt
like she was home free, that
she had beaten the cancer.
When you fight the battle
against cancer it's the hounds
of recurrence that will dog you
the rest of your life. The fears
nip at your heels, biting a little
more severely around exam-
ination time and howling with
each unexplained pain or fe-
ver. Often, the hounds just
bark and have no bite. At other
times, they bare their fangs
and the relapse of cancer is a
sharp-toothed reality.
In 2006, five months before
her 43rd birthday, Marti
stepped into the shower, soap
in hand, and felt a lump in her


right breast.
The lump, 6 centimeters of
cellular anarchy, was cancer.
Her oncologist would later
tell her she had a choice: "It's
either the breast or the lady."
It's every woman's horror;
breast cancer, mastectomy. In
2006, Marti Lofstrom became a
statistic. She was one of the
1.4 million Americans _diag-
nosed that year with cancer.
According to the National
Cancer Institute, about 178,500
women will be diagnosed with
breast cancer in 2007, and
40,460 will die.
If you're a woman and won-
der how you fit into the stans-
tical mix, cancer institute fig-
ures show that from 2000 to
2004. the median age at diag-
nosis for breast cancer was 61.
About 2 percent of those diag-
nosed with the disease were 20
to 34; 11 percent between 35
and 44; 22 percent between 45
and 54: 23 percent between 55
and 64; 20 percent between 65
and 74; 17 percent between 75
and 84; and 5 percent were 85
or older:
Overall, 1 woman in 9 will
get breast cancer in her life.
VWhat statistics don't tell you
is that cancer can put a family
under siege.
When cancer attacks. it
touches the entire family. The
toll can be disastrous on a
marriage, or it can strengthen
a couple's bond. Children see
the grieving, feel the terror,
know the isolation. One thing
is certain: Relationships will
not remain the same.
I began lying to people after
doctors told me my wife had
breast cancer. People would
ask how I was doing and I'd
say, "I'm OK." But it wasn't
always true. When you find out
your wife has cancer, you feel
terrorized. The only voice you
hear is one that is paralyzed by
shock and consumed with
fear, and only the insanity of
the moment lingers.
The feelings many Amer-
icans experienced after the
Sept. 11 attacks seem familiar;
the sense of being devastated
and the menacing "hole in
your gut." Even after the initial
shock fades, it can be hard to
make yourself think about a
future in which-your life will be
the same.
The Power Of Prayer
On June 8, the atmosphere
was hushed and unhurried as
family and friends. made their
way to H. Lee Moffitt Cancer
Center in Tampa to support
Marti on the day of her sur-
gery. It had been a tough week

PLANT CITY A fertilizer
company, a Durant High
School teacher and two long-
time farmers were honored,
last week at an annual agricul-
ture awards ceremony.
The Salute to Agriculture, a
local tradition for more than
20 years, was hosted by the
Greater Plant City Chamber of
Commerce and sponsored by
Farm Credit of Central Florida.
The breakfast ceremony helps
underscore the area's long ties
to farming, particularly straw-
berries.
"Agriculture is a vital part of
our community," said Richard
W. Joyner, president of the
Farm Credit of Central Florida,
as the program got under way.
Here are recipients of the
awards presented Aug. 8:

in the state and nation, despite
encroaching development.
About one-third of the county
is devoted to agriculture, he
said.

He cited several statistics,

farmer spends about $20,000
per acre each year for plants,
irrigation, and other expenses,
Crocker said-
The growers association, in
its 25th year, is launching a
new marketing program, in-
cluding a new logo and Web

He sees a bright future for
strawberry growers, including
a role in growing second crops
such as sorghum and switch

CANCER BATTLE

Continued From Page 13

for the family, and we dreaded
the painful procedure and the
untold story of this alien that
had invaded her body.
In the hospital waiting room
a television set was tuned to
afternoon soaps.
"Like sand through the hour
glass," the announcer intoned,
"so are the days of our lives."
Sitting on a gurney in a
small pre-op cubicle, Marti
nervously talked with hospital
staff members preparing her
for surgery.
"It's scary," she said. "On
the ride to the hospital I
couldn't stop staring at my
children and wondering if I
might not be here to watch
them grow and get married.
I've been really good at cover-
ing up for a long time, putting
on a happy face. Sometimes I
get this idea I'm invincible,
and now I am faced with the
reality of my own mortality."
At 2:15 p.m., medical staff


members dressed in green sur-
gical scrubs, masks and paper
booties rolled Marti away to
the operating room and to a
place only she could go.
As she vanished behind the
double doors of the operating
room there was nothing more
we could do but pray.
Few places are more nerve-
racking than a hospital waiting
room. At one end, a red-nosed
woman struggled to breathe as
a doctor brought her news of a
loved one.
The hours ticked by as Marti
remained in surgery. I couldn't
help but think about that
grieving woman. Every time
the waiting room door would
open or a physician would
enter the room, I braced for
the news.
It came at 4:45 p.m.
A loudspeaker brought the
message: "Would Mr. Lofstrom
please come to the front desk?"
As I reached for the phone
connecting me to the operat-
ing room, it seemed at that
moment that time stood still.
Surgeon Susan Hoover's
message was clear: "There is


Tribune photo by JASON BEHNKEN
Nurse Trinh Vu updates Marti Lofstrom's charts at Moffitt. Lof-
strom's chemotherapy sessions take about two hours.


reason for hope, Mr. Lofstrom.
I removed the cancerous tu-
mor and I'm certain I got it all.
We found no evidence of can-
cer in the lymph nodes, which
tells us the cancer did not
travel beyond her breast. Marti
is in a recovery room and
doing fine; she will be trans-
ferred to her room in a couple
of hours."
Hoover's report was like a
ray of sunlight piercing a


cloudy sky. After weeks and
months of gloomy possibil-
ities, family and friends were
suddenly basking in the
warmth of good news.'
But it was also time for
recognition.
As Christians we believe the
prayers of many friends and
the intervention and guidance
of God's hand led to a suc-
cessful surgery that Friday af-
ternoon and we thank him for


his presence.
To cap off the day, a spec-
tacular light show appeared
out the window of Marti's hos-
pital room a perfect double
rainbow shining from the
heavens as if to say everything
was going to be all right. Min-
utes later, the eastern sky was
set afire with the launching of
the space shuttle Atlantis.
It was a time of celebration.
Voltaire, the French writer
and philosopher wrote, "it is
not known precisely where an-
gels dwell whether in the
air, the void or the planets. It
has not been God's pleasure
that we should be informed of
their abode."
But God has shown me, Vol-
taire.
Go to Moffitt Cancer Center
and you will be surrounded by
angels. They wear physician's
lab coats, nursing badges, cus-
todians' uniforms, food service
aprons and volunteer smocks.
Go there, Voltaire, and you'
will find Marti's guardian an-
gels.

Keep This A Secret
Jim Creel was 10 when he
knew he was going to be a
preacher.
At 12, he was ordained by
the Assemblies of God, and he
has been in the pulpit ever
since, said his wife, Marge.
That was 50 years ago, and
he still is going strong.
On Sunday, family and
church members will cele-
brate his golden anniversary
of spreading the Gospel. The
celebration is at 10 a.m. at
New Hope Worship Center,
803 W. Mahoney St., where he
has been pastor for 20 years.
Lunch follows in the church
fellowship hall.
Marge Creel has tried to
keep the celebration a secret
from her husband, but she
agreed to talk about it to help
spread word about the -festiv-
ities.
She hopes no one who
reads this will tell him.
The Rev. Jim Creel was born
in Hartford, Ala., near Dothan,
and was ordained in Grace-
ville, a small city on the Ala-
bama-Florida state line. His
father was a contractor, and
his grandfather, "Big Daddy"
Creel, was a preacher for
many years, as was his late
uncle, P.D. Creel. who for
years was pastor at First As-
sembly of God in Plant City.
The Creels have, five chil-
dren Ricky Creel of Waco,
Texas; Tina Creel of Lakeland;
Crystal Butler of Plant City;
Michael Whistin of Bartow; -
and Lora Day of Barrow not
to mention 10 grandchildren.
Marge Creel anticipates all the
children except Ricky will be
there for their dad's big day.

What's In A Name?
At the recent Salute to Agri-
culture breakfast, county
school agribusiness adminis-
trator Jim Jeffries shared tid-
bits about two of the better-
known corporate names in the
area.
Most residents are familiar
with CF Industries and its
phosphate-processing plant
north of the city.
But what does CF stand for?
It's not an acronym for
Central Florida. It stands for
Central Farmers, as in the
central United States, Jeffries
said.
The company's roots are in
the central United States, with
headquarters in Deerfield, Ill.,
he explained. CF's local plant
is one of several the company
owns, Jeffries said, quoting
from the company's Web site.
Jeffries also shed light on
the old Tenoroc phosphate
mine in nearby Polk County.
Tenoroc, he said, is Coronet
spelled backward. Coronet
owned the Tenoroc operation
and also operated a phos-
phate-processing plant at
4028 Coronet Road in Plant
City until 2004. Jeffries worked
at Tenoroc as a young man to
earn money for college.
Phosphaie was discovered
at Tenoroc in the early- to
mid-1900s. The old Tenoroc
property is now a state park.
Coronet's old factory recently
was demolished.
Dave Nicholson.

Long Tradition
The agriculture breakfast,
sponsored by Farm Credit of
Central Florida and hosted by


the Greater Plant City Chain-
- ber of Commerce, has been
held annually for two decades.
The event was founded in
1986, and the first recipient of
the Agriculturist of the Year
award was Marshall Watkins.
Other award categories, such
as agriculture educator of the
year, were added in the early
1990s, said Debbie Simpson,
chairwoman of the event
committee.
Farm Credit spokesman
Ron O'Connor said agriculture
lending is the "bread and
butter of our business." Spon-
sorship of the Salute to Agri-
culture is a natural for the
lender, he said.
Farming is "part of the fab-
ric of Plant City," he added.
Dave Nicholson

Gator Alum Chums.
Agriculture breakfast emcee
Kelleigh Klein, a University of
Florida graduate, couldn't
help but point out the event's
keynote speaker, Shawn
Crocker, is a fellow Gator.
Crocker is the relatively new
executive director of the Flori-
da Strawberry Growers Associ-
ation and "another great ex-
ample of what the university is
producing," Klein said to
chuckles from the crowd.
Klein, the development and
special events coordinator for
the Johnnie B. Byrd Sr. Alz-
heimer's Center & Research
Institute in Tampa, has been
the master'of ceremonies for
chamber of commerce events
for three years. Her degree
from UF is in exercise and
sports science, and she

books.
"It encourages children to
read and it encottrages par-
-,ents to read to their chil-
dren," Lawson said.
Children's books and
books suitable for ages up to
high school are being col-
lected, she said.
Donations can be dropped
off at the food bank, 712 E.

Atrial fibrillation (A-Fib) is the most common heart rhythm problem.Yet, most treatments
have been ineffective, and long-term medications often have side effects.

New minimally invasive procedure offers new hope for A-Fib!
It's a safe and simple option for the treatment of A-Fib. Our hospital is among only a few
that offers this break-through procedure. If you have been diagnosed with A-Fib, we invite
you to learn more how cardiovascular specialists on our staff can restore your heart's
rhythm without major surgery.

a public-private community
initiative working to improve
outcorries for foster youth
through services and pro-
grams. Its mission is to ensure
that young people are educat-
ed, housed, employed and
supported by age 25. '
Linda Lee, a 17-year-old in
foster care who is starting her
senior year at Plant City High
School, was a guest speaker at
the ceremony Aug. 2.
"My 18th birthday will be
the most terrifying day of my
life," Lee said from the podi-
um, with Glorioso. and Crist


standing at her side. "Leaving
the foster care program I will
have to wonder, 'Where will I
live?' What will I eat? How will I
get around?'"
Lee spoke of her foster
home closing down during her
sophomore year, leaving her
stranded in a world without
family.
"I want to thank Rep. Glo-
rioso for helping all of us who
are dependent upon the foster
care system," she said. "Fami-
ly, for me and for many others,
means extending beyond the
legal family. I am determined
to make it work. I know that I
will have a lifelong connection
with Connection at 25. I am
not one voice. I am the voice of
many."
Glorioso said the bills he has


written and passed to improve
the foster care program in
Florida are not the end of that
effort.
"Each year in office I plan to
present improvements to the
foster care laws of our state,"
Glorioso said.
Glorioso spent 90 minutes
talking with foster care chil-
dren after the bill signing.
"I am always impressed with
the resilience shown by the
foster care children," Glorioso
said. "All they want is a chance
to succeed. After so many
things have gone against them
it's up to us to give them a real
chance at life."

Main Street Contest Field Narrows


The downtown
merchant's entry
gains views, and

PLANT CITY .And the winner
?isn't ... Plant City.
The downtown merchants'
entry in Ikea's Small Business-
es, Big Dreams main street
makeover didn't make the fi-
nal cut in a national contest
that drew more than 50 entries
from small towns across Amer-
ica.
Judges representing the
Swedish furniture-maker have
narrowed the field down to 10
finalists. Visitors to the compa-
ny's Web site can view the final
entries and vote for their favor-
ites through Aug. 22 at ikea.
shycast.com.
The public's votes and those
of a panel of judges will deter-
mine the grand prize winner
Aug. 27.
Heather Davis, co-owner of
Espress Yourself Coffee 101,
said she's disappointed Plant
City's video isn't among those
still in the running.


Timothy Taylor of Taylormade Video Productions produced the
video for the Ikea contest for a group of downtown businesses.


"But I don't regret it." she
said. "It was a wonderful expe-
rience and definitely worth it."
Davis, along with owners of
the Camellia Rose Tea Room &
Gifts, the Sub Club, Focus
Magazine, Patricia's Antiques
and The Comer Store partici-
pated in the project, which was
produced by Tun Taylor of
Taylormade Video Produc-
tions in Tampa.
The finalists include Old

ams Morgan, a neighborhood

No word from Ikea as to
how long the Plant City video

However, Davis is considering

Solid Service Is Foundation At Millennium Homes


"I1 always thought I could build a home that somebody could own with pride,"
Joe Rodriguez says.
In 2003, after serving four years as supervisor for a national builder. Joe
launched Millennium Homes, a custom home developer al 110 W Reynolds St. in
Plant City
Millennium Homes, www.millenniumnomes.bi:, specializes in building custom
homes and room additions in Hillsborough and Polk counties, and selling land lots
in the Plant City area. "Customers design their own home-based on various sizes
and layouts often choosing an element from one plan and something else from
another to create the perfect home Joe says
At Millennium, it's been a family affair from the beginning. Mom Janice leads
sales and marketing Brother Jamie works with customers in the design center.
Dad Joe Sr oversees all service work. Though not a Rodriguez family member,
crew supervisor Barry Watson has been with the company since its start and
brings more than 25 years e.penience to the role.
Anyone who works with us can expect honest, straighl-forward communication
Joe says 1 II tell you what we can and cannot do and always be up-fronl about
costs and rime.' He insists [he process of building a home is rather simple.
*At Millennium customers meet with a drahsman to share their ideas. That
professional transforms their dreams into a plan, and we give those dreams
walls he says.
Millennium offers a 10-year structural warranty on all homes and prides itself
on a strong reputation for good service "We're always trere for our customers,"
Joe says. "How many companies do you know give out their personal phone
numbers in case there are any problems'? He also knows that efficiency leads to
greater customer satisfaction. "We can produce a high-quality, custom-built home
in 4 to 6 months, which is fast by industry standards.
He points to letters and thanK-you cards sent by customers 'Everyone has
worked tirelessly to help us achieve our dream,' wrote one couple building their
first home. Another customer sent a letter to The Tampa Tribune raving 'As a


manager of a business myself, I Inink it s well worth the effort to try and get the
word out on someone who tries as hard as Millennium Homes to satisfy their
customers Comments like these are why you stay committed,' he says.
Joe. who resides in Plant City with his wife and son, offers advice to anyone
considering a custom-built home. "Hurricane season reminds us of the importance
of a home's foundation," he insists. "We're building more homes with ICF walls,
insulated foam walls waih cement at their center. They're more hurricane-resistant
and energy-efficient and ofter a little peace of mind "
He adds. "Be sure to compare apples to apples and find someone who really
cares about building your dream home You nave a lot of your time and money
invested, so make sure they're in good hands."
Millennium is running a summer special that offers customers a 2 400-square-
foot house on a one-acre lot in the Plant City area for $299 000. To learn more.

PLANT CITY Professional
baseball players who can.run,
hit, hit for power and play,
good defense are worth a ton
of money on today's market.
A former Plant City High
School and Florida Southern
College star player made his
mark in the professional
leagues, but has opted out of
that whirlwind life to seek his
fortune closer to home.
William "B.J." Garrisonr, 29,

Bowling Record


LOCAL BOWLING


By BOB AUSTIN
Tribune correspondent
It was nail-biting and pos-
sible record-setting time and
most no, make that all -
of the bowlers not involved
at Oakfield Lanes were
crowding around Lanes
17-18 and making sure they
would be able to tell their
children, friends, or co-
workers that they were there
and witnessed it.
It was the second game of
the Oakfield Thursday Nite
Men's Summer League and
after nine frames, three of
the quintet Don Yoshih-
ara, Mike Tuzzolino and Mike
Murkin were looking per-
fection dead in the face. A
fourth, J.D. Barile, had drilled
the first eight strikes before
his string ended at nine with
a spare.
"I got my 300," said Yosh-
ihara, the.701 of his still

struck on the first ball, but

lege. It's a great school. After
receiving my degree it was a
foregone conclusion that I
would join the staff at Caring
Concepts."
Glenn said Garrison can
help care for a growing list of
clients.
"It's a bit of a drive through
Orlando on Interstate 4, but if I
got used to anything playing
baseball it was being on the
road," Garrison said.
Baseball has been a big part
of Garrison's life. Born and
raised in Plant City to Vel and
Jack Garrison, he graduated
from Plant City High School in
1996.
"My mother was working
with Dr. Kohlmeier at his chi-
ropractic clinic," Garrison
said. "He was part of athletic
physical health staff at the
school, giving us physical and
treating us for injuries during
the season. He was a big influ-
ence on my interest in physical
training and therapy."
Now the feeling seems mu-
tual.


"I have known Dr. Garrison
his entire life," Kohlmeier said.
"I know he has all the qualities
a patient would want in their
physician. He will have a posi-
tive impact on the practice and
Plant City."
Field Of Dreams
During high school, Garri-
son impressed college scouts
with his speed and bat, but
opted to go to Florida South-
ern to play as a walk-on. Flori-
da Southern has won nine
Division II championships and
two national championships.
He received a full scholarship
while making a name for him-
self in the school's record
books.
"During my freshman year I
was voted best defensive play-
er," Garrison said. "As a sopho-
more I was selected most valu-
able player. In my junior year I
made honorable mention, All
American, and led the team
with 15 doubles, 11 triples, 10
home runs and a .365 batting
average."
During his senior year Garri-
son was First Team All Confer-
ence and finished fourth over-
all in total bases at Florida
Southern for his career.


His future looked bright,
with or without baseball. Even
though he was not chosen in
the Major League Baseball
draft, he had a bachelor of
science degree in sports man-
agement with a minor in sci-
ence.
"I wasn't too disappointed
when none of the teams draft-
ed me," he said. "That hap-
pens to a lot of good athletes.
But I was working at Dr. Kohl-
meier's office and didn't get
much time to sulk about it,
even if I wanted to."
The day after the draft, Gar-
rison was contacted by a scout
from the Northern League, in
Canada. He said the owner of
the Quebec Capitols wanted
him in New York to play right
field for the team the next day.
"One day I'm filing medical
records at Dr. Kohlmeier's
clinic and the next day I'm in
New York getting paid to chase
down fly balls and run the
bases," Garrison said. "Sud-
denly I'm a professional base-
ball player. I was in shock."
During his first time at bat,
Garrison said he hit a 95 mph
fastball to the wall for a triple.
His second time up he hit
another line drive into the gap


William "B.J." Garrison, now a
chiropractor, played college ball
at Florida Southern in Lakeland.

between outfielders but held
up at second for a double.
"The third base coach was
waving for me to go for anoth-
er triple but I went back to
second," Garrison said. "He
chewed me out for ignoring


the sign. I'll never forget it."
Garrison hit .310 that first
season and was named Rookie
of the Year. His parents went
to Canada to watch him play
and witnessed their son hit a
single, double, triple and a
home run in the same game.
"Jack and I took home vid-
eos of the game," Vel Garrison
said. "We watched B.J. play
many times before but it was
all so exciting."
Career Peaks In 2001
Garrison played four years
in the Northern League. He
says his best year was in 2001
with the Capitols. He injured
his left wrist in 2002 and spent
time on the disabled list.
He played well in 2003, driv-
ing in the winning run after
more than 4 hours of play in
the longest game in the team's
history. Late that year Garrison
reinjured his wrist sliding
headfirst into home.
He was traded late in the
year to the Fargo-Moorhead
RedHawks. The Red Hawks
were going into the playoffs.
The coaches noticed Garrison
favoring his wrist and sched-

A Great Catch For Softball Federation


Being an event
administrator is a
glamorous job,
Gouthro says.
By SCOTT E. RUPP
The Tampa Tribune
PLANT CITY Laurie Gouthro
gave up her batting glove for a
briefcase long ago.
Instead of boarding a bus
from game to game, she travels
around the globe several
weeks out of each year.
Hers is a position that many
people see as glamorous, and
they tell her so.
Admittedly, it is, she said.
Fresh moments grab at her,
and she is thankful for the
experiences, such as watching
the softball medal ceremony at
the 2004 Olympic Games in
Athens, Greece.
After an action-packed two
weeks of competition, preced-
ed by a week of preparation,
watching the American flag
rise up the pole and hearing
the national anthem, she said
she felt extremely fortunate to
be in her line of work.


"I was so overwhelmed by
what we needed to do for it to
be perfect," she said of the
preparation prior to and dur-
ing the Olympic Games. "It's a
moment I won't forget. The
flags were going up, the an-
thems were being played. I
thought to myself, 'We just
pulled this off.' I get to be part
of the game [softball] at the
highest level."
Gouthro is an event admin-
istrator for the International
Softball Federation, based in
Plant City. Organizing softball
play at the Olympic Games is
just one of her many roles.
A Brandon resident, the for-
mer professional softball play-
er technically serves as the
director of competition for the
agency. One of her main func-
tions, however, is serving as an
ad hoc tournament director of
sorts at international competi-
tions.
"She basically makes them
[tournaments] happen any-
where in the world," said
Bruce Wawrzyniak, spokes-
man for the federation, adding
that Gouthro is such a valuable
source to softball and the ad-

ISF's go-to person at tourna-
ments."
"I try to make every aspect
of the event run smoothly,"
she said. "I am somewhat of a
perfectionist and extremely
competitive but do try to bal-
ance the needs of everyone
while the events are taking-
place."
ISF is the world's softball
governing body, and the only
governing body to an Olympic
sport based in the United
States. The federation hosts at
least one major international
softball event each year in-
cluding the Junior Women's
World Championship, which
finished in June, the Junior
Men's Championships and the
Olympics next year, the Men's
World Championships in 2009


and the Women's World
Championships in 2010.
Gouthro recently returned
from a trip to Europe where
she supervised an Olympic
qualifier tournament in Italy
and the Junior Women's World
Championship in the Nether-
lands.
Though her playing days
seem to be behind her, she's
filled her life with softball since
she was 11 and watched a
game her babysitter was play-
ing in, in Hollywood, Fla.
She quickly told her mother
that it was the game for her,
and she joined a team, though
she said her excitement got the
better of her as she had not
one clue about how to play or
what the fielding positions
were called.
"It was very comedic. I
would go all over the place
chasing people down," she
said of her first few times on
the field. "I believe I caught on
very quickly, and made the


All-Star team."
She said the All-Star dis-
tinction was no big deal, but it
did seem to be a foreshad-
owing of her life.
Gouthro continued playing
through high school, fascinat-
ed by sports and how athletes
acted and trained.
"I always .wondered what
made them so good. and I was
interested in what made ath-
letes tick," she said.
She considered studying
sports psychology but instead
decided to teach and studied
secondary physical education.
Having won scholarships to
play softball, she first attended
Florida Community College in
Jacksonville and later the Uni-
versity.of South Florida, where
she graduated in 1991.
For a time after, Gouthro
coached collegiately and
taught and coached at Frost-
proof High School and Bran-
don High School before'step-
ping up to the plate at the


agency that is softball in 2001.
This past school year
marked the last group of stu-
dents she taught at Brandon
who graduated from college.
She said she's still considered
coach by those she taught.
She even made the -only
women's professional baseball
team the Colorado Silver
Bullets where she played as
an infielder during the 1994
and '95 seasons.
Later, she became an in-
fielder for the Tampa Bay Fire-
Stix, part of the Women's Pro-
fessional Softball League in
1997 and '98, and became the
team's assistant coach from
1999 when the FireStix won the
championship to 2001 when
the league folded.
Some of the softball games
were played in Plant City at the
former Cincinnati Reds' spring
training complex where her
current office is at 1900 S. Park
Road. When the FireStix
played there, her office was


nothing more than a covered
concrete patio where team
functions were held, but now it
looks more like Gouthro's sec-
ond home.
The room is filled with
memorabilia, posters, balls
and the like, and she's com-
fortably set in.
But all is not settled in the
world of softball. In 2005, the
International Olympic Com-
mittee removed softball and
baseball from the 2012 Olym-
pic Games, primarily because
of concerns of steroid use in
baseball and Major League
Baseball not suspending its
season during the Olympic
Games and sending its best
players to participate, Wawr-
zyniak said.
Both baseball and softball
have been part of the Olympics
since 1996 in Atlanta.
Softball, he explained, had
been lumped together with

baseball because it's a bat
and ball sport, even though
softball has no doping issues
facing it.
"It's a tough time for us
because of our perceived ties
to baseball," he said. "It's
guilt by association. They just
assume softball is women's
baseball."
The federation is pushing
to have softball returned to
the Olympic ticket by 2016
and minimize the damage
done by missing out on the
Olympics.
Under the Back 'Softball
campaign, the International
Softball Federation is seeking
to increase the number of
softball federations (coun-
tries) participating in softball
events. Currently there are
130, but federation officials,
including Gouthro, look to
have 150 member countries
by October 2009 as evidence
that the sport is growing and
gaining a worldwide follow-
ing.
Though there's a healthy


respect for the Olympic pro-
cess, and knowing that the
sport is thriving even without
the Games, Gouthro works
toward the reinstatement.
But even without the
Olympics the world cares,
she said.
"I don't think anyone has
really given up. South Africa
is still bidding on 2011," she
said. "So people are still plan-
ning."
As such, Gouthro is going
to continue swinging
through each pitch she's giv-
en, working toward the China
Cup later in October, a tour-
nament designed to replicate
how the Games should go.
Then, she'll be spending
the next year focusing on
producing a softball tourna-
ment on the Games' largest
stage in Beijing, all the while
making sure the remaining
tournaments and events go
off without a hitch.
The whole journey has
been incredible, she said re-
cently. "I've met the most
incredible people in so many
different countries."

uled him for an X-ray.
"The X-ray showed a clean
fracture, but the bone wasn't
separated and the blood flow
was not interrupted," Garrison
said. "They asked me if I want-
ed to finish the season" or seek
treatment.
Garrison opted to continue
playing ball. He hit a game-
winning home run against the
Shamburg Flyers, knocking
them out of the playoffs, and
then played for the champi-
onship.
"We played the Winnipeg
Goldeyes arid we stomped on
them," Garrison said. "We
were the 2003 Northern
League champs."
Garrison returned home. He
had his wrist operated on. Af-
ter wrist surgery, he wore a
bone-growth stimulation de-
vice for more than three
months until his wTist was
healed. His career in baseball
looked boundless, except for
one thing. He fell in love.
Felicia Baldick stole his
heart, sending Garrison back


to school to get his chiroprac-
tic degree.
"On Nov. 1, 2004, we were
married," Garrison said.
"Our family is extremely
proud of B.J. and all of his
accomplishments," Vel Garri-
son said. "When he played
baseball I would always .tell
him as he approached the
plate to 'swing hard in case
you hit it!' Now we feel that by
returning home to practice in
Plant City, he has hit one out of
the park just for us. It is such


fun for us to work together."
Garrison's father is also ex-
cited to have his son closer to
home.
"It was an unforgettable ex-
perience to watch him play pro
ball in the Northern League,"
Jack Garrison said. "And it's
been fun.getting him back on
the golf course now that he is
close enough to do it."

THE IRISH WAKE
Although the Irish Wake is a well-
known funeral tradition, this glorious
send-off of the departed is not in such
widespread practice as it once was. While
it is now the custom to view the body in
a funeral home, a traditional wake has
the body laid out in the home of a family
member or friend. With head and hands
visible, the deceased is dressed in his or
her best clothes, with a shloud covering
the body from the chest down. Visitors
are greeted at the door and invited to view
the body, say a prayer, and be seated. All
clocks in the house are stopped as a.sign
of respect. Refreshments are provided
while family and friends reminisce.

The whole concept of saying
goodbye to o nes has changed
tremendously over the past few years, as
tradition has given way to more modern
approaches. When you experience a loss,
a funeral for a member of your family
is the most difficult day of your life.
Funeral- directors are there to help and
advise in, whatever way they can. They
play a key role, helping relatives of the
deceased to make arrangements and then
providing a dignified funeral 'service in
accordance with the family's wishes. For
information about funeral services, please
call HAUGHT FUNERAL HOME 813-
717-9300. Our home is located at 708 Dr.
Martin Luther King Blvd. W.


"May you live as long as you want, and
never want as long as you live."

Raider Golfers Will Step Up


By DAREK SHARP
The Tampa Tribune
PLANT CITY The Warner
Southern College golf team's
gain is. Plant City High's loss.
When the Raiders start their
season, they will be without
Spencer Baldwin anid Chad
Ballantyne for the first time in
five years.
"They were our No. 1 and 2
players ... and this year as
freshmen they may be Warner
Southern's No. 1 and No. 2,"
said Gary Brady, Plant City
High boys golf coach.
Naturally, Brady's feelings
are mixed, between pride of
seeing his players earn full'
scholarships to college and
knowing his Raiders squad has
two voids to fill. Baldwin and
Ballantyne will tee off their


first year at Warner Southern, a
small school in Lake Wales, in
January.
One comfort for Plant City is
that the rest of last year's top
five returns. Juniors Kyle Mar-
tin and Brad Hall and senior
Cody Lusk will form the new
top three.
Just don't ask Brady who
will be where.
"It'll be those three in some
combination. We'll see how
things shake out after qualify-
ing," he said. The Raiders just
began practice last week and
will have qualifying rounds to
sort out the top five.
Martin is a strong candidate
to be the new No. 1 Raider. He
excelled in junior tournaments
this summer, winning a Cen-
tral Florida Junior Golf Associ-


ation event in Sebring in July
by shooting a 72.
At the Bagwell Junior In-
vitational, also held at the Riv-
er Greens, course in Sebring,-
Martin finished second with
rounds of 77 and 71. In one
event Martin outscored Bal-
dwin.
Brady said six freshmen are
battling for the rest of the
starting spots.
Last year, the Raiders went
12-4 against a strong schedule.
Plant City gave Plant High its
lone regular-season loss, and
the Panthers went on to the
Class 2A state tournament,
where they finished eighth
overall.
"It was us, Plant and Bloom-
ingdale as the strongest teams
in the county last year. Bloom-


ingdale only lost one guy and
Plant, I think, has its entire
team back," Brady said.
The Raiders start the season
against Bloomingdale Aug. 28
at Walden Lake.
Raider girls golf coach Meg
Cimino has all of her top five
coming back. Captain Dakota
Baty leads the all-senior group
that includes Skoti McEleven,
Tanay Tatum, Crystal Bennett
and Alicia Pruett. Underclass-
men back from last year's
squad are Jordan Joiner and
Hayley Battaglia.
Pruett is a senior playing her
first year. Newcomers are Lisa
Smith and Carly Copeland.
Reporter Darek Sharp can be
reached at dsharp@tampatrib
