Alan Jackson, a singer-songwriter who is often referred to as a standard-bearer of traditional country, will take the Florida Strawberry
Festival stage at 7:30 p.m. March 2. Jackson's show will likely range from honky-tonk to pop to bluegrass.


Great Acts Coming;


Bleachers Are Free

The 2008 Florida Strawberry Festival features a popular and eclectic mix of
entertainers, including the knockdown cowboy sounds of Alan Jackson and
Sugarland. Demand was so great that online ticketing and phone lines were initially
overloaded. Festival officials hope those problems are over.

[FROM YOU] YOUR VOICES


EDITOR'S NOTE: Here are some of the
condolences readers wrote on tbo.com
to the family of Jordan Hays, who was
killed by a float in the Dec. 7 Plant City
Christmas Parade. To view the entire
guest book go to PlantCity.tbo.com.
We are so sorry to hear of
your loss. I have two children
of my own and cannot even
begin to tell you how my heart
breaks for you. Know that Jor-
dan will stay in our hearts and
minds forever. Our thoughts
and prayers go to you and your
family in this time of sorrow.
God Bless you!
Michelle Greene (Plant City)

As the mother of four boys, I1
can't even begin to imagine
the awful pain you are feeling
right now. I do believe Jordan
is in heaven with God and he
will forever be with you. No
one, even those who never had
the honor to meet him, will
ever forget his name: I pray for
you and your family and I wish
you peace in the future.
Love, Tracy, Danny, Justin,
Derek, Joey and Nathan the
Cheverez family (Plant City)

May God bless your hearts
and try to heal your pain, from
the loss of your loved orine.
was at the parade that night,
but did not see what hap-
pened. I hope that you all
succeed in making new rules
for the parade! Again, I hope
that you are able to heal your
pain, and know that many
people are praying for you and
your family.
Amanda Summers (Brandon)

I was with the Knights Bap-
tist float No. 140 and heard
about this tragedy shortly after
it had happened. As soon as I
heard, my heart broke and I
started weeping. I am a mother
of three and I could not even
begin to imagine what it would
be like to hear or to feel the
pain your family is feeling. My
thoughts and prayers are with
you all every day. May God
bless all of you.
Maella Nelson (Plant City)

To the family of Jordan
Hays, my prayers are with you
as you are guided through
your loss by faith in a loving
Jesus. Jordan was a shining
star here, but he had served his-
purpose for the Lord here on
Earth, and it was time for him
to go home. Now he is safe in
the arms of Jesus. God bless
tandxkeepyou; r ;t i .


Esther Peterman (Plant City)

Our prayers and thoughts
are with you. It is very obvious
that God had a special mission
and purpose for Jordan to do
while he was here on Earth. It
is just as obvious that when
God had Jordan fulfill his spe-
cial reason for being here on.
Earth He called him home to
continue his special mission
and purpose in heaven. Your
son will always be remem-
bered by Plant City as being a
wonderful angel that was sent
by God to serve and to serve
especially in Plant City. Just
think about the people here in
Plant City that God knew
needed Jordan's Christian
spirit to be near them. God
took him home to claim his
citizenship in heaven.
You are in our prayers and
most tender thoughts.
In Christ. Dale and Blake Bliss
(Plant City)

We are so sorry for your loss.
Jordan left footprints on the
hearts of everyone that knew
him. We pray that God will
surround you and comfort you
during this difficult time.
Tim, Lori, Trevor and Teri
Caudill (Inverness)

I am very sorry for your loss.
I cannot begin to imagine it.
You and your family are in my
thoughts and prayers. Every
since Friday night [Dec. 7],_
when I first heard what hap-
pened, you have been on my
heart. I pray that the Lord
Jesus will give you peace
knowing that Jordan is with
him. Walking on the streets of
gold and loving on everyone
there. My family will continue
to keep you and your family in
our thoughts and prayers. I
pray that God will wrap your
family in his loving arms. God
bless you all.
Love, Mike, Tammy, Michael,
George and Joshua Smith and
Mary Vallejo (Keysville)

Our thoughts and prayers
are with you. May you draw
upon your memories of your
precious little boy to get you
through this very difficult time.
Take comfort in knowing Jor-
dan is in the arms of Jesus. God
be with you all.

Sean Sullivan (Floral City)

Plant City has shared in the
joy of Christmas for over 20
years in the presentation of the
annual Christmas parade. I
now feel that we have our own
guardian angel in the gift of
Jordan to watch over and pro-
tect us. Plant City is a better
place because this child came
to share in the Christmas spir-
it, and I know that Jordan will
live on in our hearts and minds
for years to come. As we cele-
brate the birth of the Christ
child, may we also include
Jordan Hays in the celebration.
God bless you, mother, father,
family and friends of Jordan
Hays.
Marsha Passmore (Plant City)

I would like to join with the
many others who offer you
their heartfelt sympathy and
have you in their prayers. We
are human and we cannot
understand the reason these
things happen. All we can do is
lift you up to God in heaven
who will see you through this
awful time. I have a grandson
almost 9 and I can only imag-
ine what you are going
through. May God be with you
in your borrow and help you
get through this.
Pat Comstock (Plant City)

You are in our prayers, we
are so sorry for your loss. Plant
City parades will never be the
same, and we will never forget.
I pray God's blessings on your
family during this holiday sea-
son.
Rob and Ashley Galloway
(Plant City)

My thoughts and prayers are
i with you in your time of grief.
May your memories bring you
comfort.
Lizzette and Girardeau Mathis
(Lawrenceville, Ga.)

I can't even begin to say how
sorry our family is for your
loss. I have three girls of my
own and I had to explain to my
oldest what happened and it
truly broke my heart. I have
always loved the Scripture that







[FROM YOU] YOUR VOICES


says sorrow may last for the
night but joy comes with the
morning. I pray that God walks
hand in hand with your family
and somehow, someday he
can help you find your morn-
ing. I searched my heart for
meaning or reason for your
loss but there is none. May we
all take from this that life is so
precious, and we should all
slow down and take more time
with the ones we love and
show them that love. Once
again we are truly sorry.
Artis and Jennifer Griffin
(Plant City)

Words cannot express my
sympathy. My daughter went
to school with Jordan, she said
she will miss and always re-
member the way Jordan made
people smile! Your family will
remain in our prayers.
Leslie Mancini (Inverness)

You have our deepest sym-
. pathy, one could only imagine
the heartache that you have
endured, we are praying for

Our Luck Ran Out: Let's Make Safety No. 1 Priority


PLANT CITY It was a mag-
ical night: Crystal clear, the
backdrop of black-blue sky
sprinkled with glittering stars.
The streets of downtown
were lined with families who
claimed their piece of real
estate along Collins Street as
much as 12 hours before the
Plant City Christmas Parade
took to the streets at 6:30 p.m.
The mood was festive; the
sounds of Christmas and chil-
dren's laughter filled the air.
Police cars with their sirens
blaring preceded the parade's
arrival as people waited ea-
gerly for the parade.
For city, county and state


officials it was a time for hel-
los and other pleasantries.
For youngsters, it was a
time to scramble for candy
and beads. It's an occasion
when children can often run


in front of traffic without get-
ting in trouble.
Sitting atop her grandfa-
ther's shoulders, a little girl
cried out, "Please! Please!" to
the passing floats, hoping for a
string of beads to sail magical-
ly over the outstretched arms
of those in front of her and
come to rest in her small
hands. Evidently, the formula
had worked twice, two bright
strands of beads already
adorned her neck.
But she wanted more.
So did everybody else.
When you mix children
with the competition for can-
dy and beads, and they ma-


never among traffic for
treats, you're playing a dan-
gerous game.
"The kids see the candy and
beads as a treasure, and they'll
run straight into the street for
it," said Bill Tommolino of
Plant City, who brought his
wife, Maria, and their 3-year-
old son, Evan, to the parade.
"It's as though they have tun-
nel vision when they enter the
street. They don't pay any
attention to the huge floats
and the big four-wheel pickup
trucks coming down Collins
Street."
Frank Labarbera, founder
and co-chairman of the


:sO.c ,Kyod


Christmas parade committee
said, "Although over the years
we've never had any serious
accidents, each year there are
close calls when kids rush
onto the street for candy."
This year, luck ran out.
About 8:15 p.m., as the pa-
rade was coming to its end, it
happened.
For many of the spectators
the first indication that any-
thing was wrong came when
the parade stopped and fire
and emergency medical units
found their way through the
line of floats to Collins and

Laura streets.
What they found was hor-
rific.
Jordan Hays, a 9-year-old
from Inverness, was return-
ing to the Greater Heights
Family Worship Center float
to retrieve more candy when
his foot got entangled with a
tire of the float and he was
dragged underneath.
Jerry Bridges and'Johnny
Knotts of Plant City were
among the first to kneel be-
side the injured child.
Knotts told a Tribune re-
porter, "People on the east
side of the street were
screaming. It was obvious
that something horrible had
happened. I ran to the other
side of the float and saw the
boy lying under the trailer."
Bridges, Jordan's cousin,
and Knotts, owner of a hard-
ware store near the accident
scene, removed the boy from
under the float and began to
administer cardio-pulmonary
resuscitation.
When fire rescue person-


nel arrived, Knotts left and
found a place behind a near-
by building where he began
to cry.
A short time later, Jordan
was pronounced dead.
There's no easy way to tell
the story-of the death of a
child. There's no other event
that tugs at the heart with
more anguish.
Tragedies confront people
every day. But there are some
things you never get used to,
including the death of a
child. We want to believe that
children are born to play and
be happy, smile and grow,
not to die.
But sometimes they do,
and it's the unkindest cut of
all.
So it was last Friday morn-
ing when a group of people
from the Plant City commu-
nity, led by Mayor Rick Lott,
traveled to the Floral City
United Methodist Church to
attend Jordan's funeral.
Children aren't supposed
to die. They are supposed to
hang out with friends, tease
their sister, challenge their
parents and respect their
elders. They are supposed to
graduate from college, dis-
cover the world, get married


and watch the joy of their
own children grow.
Jordan will never experi-
ence those times.
It just seems so unfair, so
unjust; the lost potential, the
unfulfilled dreams, and the
loss of all that might have
been.
City Manager David Sol-
lenberger has called on Po-
lice Chief Bill McDaniel and
Fire Rescue Chief George
Shiley to review the accident
and recommend changes in
parade rules.
Their report is scheduled
to be released in early Janu-
ary.
.My advice to the city man-
ager: The current practice of
enticing children onto the
streets with the promise of
candy and beads is unsafe
and should be banned.
Our children need the
support of responsible adults
to look out for their interest,
and that includes their safety.
It should be our No. 1 pri-
ority.

orders are being
filled rapidly for

By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
TheTampa Thibune
P LANT CITY The Florida
Strawberry Festival -ex-
perienced a major com-
puter glitch just as tickets to
its headline acts went on
sale Dec. 10.
The online ticketing sys-
tem crashed for much of the
first two days of sales,
prompting often frantic cus-
tomers to swamp the festi-
val's phone lines.
By midweek, the ticketing
systems were operating
more smoothly, and orders
have been pouring in ever
since, festival officials said.
Festival General Manager
Patsy Brooks said the tre-
mendous demand for tickets
to such headline acts as Alan
Jackson and Sugarland was
more than the computers
and phone lines could han-
dle.
"We are still experiencing
some difficulties," Brooks
said Thursday. "But things
are getting better."
Joe Newsome, chairman
of the committee that select-
ed the 22 big-name enter-
tainers, was as relieved as
anyone that the ticketing
was returning to normal.
"Everything seemed to be
in an uproar for a few days,"
Newsome said. "Let's hope
that's all behind us now."
Newsome said he expects
"that our entertainment
lineup will satisfy a large-
number of our festival pa-
trons."
Bobby Vinton leads off
with a show at 3:30 p.m. Feb.
28 at the Southern Chevy
Dealers Soundstage. The fi-
nal act, Jason Aldean, per-
forms at 7:30 p.m. March 9.
In between, 20 other per-
formers will entertain with
acts that range from the folk
music and comedy of the

JOE NEWSOME
Chairman of the committee that selected the 22 big-name entertainers


Smothers Brothers to the
crossover hits of Crystal
Gayle to the knockdown
cowboy sounds of Jackson
and Sugarland.
"Alan Jackson and Sug-
arland are our highest-dollar
entertainers," Newsome'


said. "This year we spent a
record $1.5 million on 22
acts. We looked for diversity
of acts, which I think we
achieved. It was a lot of hard
work, but we are very happy
with the lineup."
Reserved seats are as low


as $10 for some shows. Sug-
arland's reserved seats are
priced at $30 and $35, and
reserved seats for Jackson's
show are $40, the highest
charged by the festival.
"Sorme of the shows will
sell out pretty fast," New-


Trace Adkins' baritone has
been energizing audiences
for more than a decade.
























The Smothers Brothers, Tom, left, and Dick, are masters of
timing and practitioners of timeless comedy.

Future Monuments

The Cow Calvary
memorial prompts
commission's
unanimous vote.
By RAY REYES
The Tampa Tribune
PLANT CITY If the East
Hillsborough Historical Soci-
ety decides to allow a compan-
ion piece to the Confederate
Cow Cavalry memorial, it must
seek city permission.
Commissioners unani-
mously approved a resolution
Dec. 10 that requires the his-
torical society to seek their
approval at least 90 days in
advance before it allows any
more permanent monuments
on the grounds of the 1914
Plant City High School Com-
munity Center.
The historical society takes
care of the building at 605 N.
Collins St. and has its archives
there.


Commissioners have said
the historical society should
have asked for permission for
the Cow Calvary memorial be-
cause the city owns the build-
ing.
The bronze memorial de-
picts a rifle-toting man in front
of a horse and-cattle and was
unveiled during the society's
Pioneer Heritage Day on Nov.
17. The Cow Cavalry protected
cattle from Union soldiers and
helped supply Confederate
troops with beef.
The memorial was paid for
by the Plant City chapter of the
United Daughters of the Con-
federacy.
City commissioner Mary
Yvette Thomas Mathis object-
ed to the memorial and told
commissioners during a meet-
ing Nov. 13 that "this is a
Confederate solider we're put-
ting on city property." .
Shelby Bender, president of
the historical society, said she



hIIllI


was surprised the resolution
was on the agenda Dec. 10.
"I didn't know it was back
on the agenda," Bender said. "I
did not think it was coming
back."
At a meeting Nov. 26, com-
missioners tabled the resolu-
tion and agreed to not take
action on it until Dec. 10, when
the language and definitions of
the resolutions were further
refined..
One major modification was
added to the revised resolu-
tion, which defined the word
"permanent" as "any monu-
ment or display which shall
remain on the property for
more than 90 days." The reso-
lution doesn't apply to dis-
plays inside the building.
The city and the society are
discussing ownership of the
building, and Bender said she
was under the impression the
resolution had been removed

An ordinance limiting new
signs along the Interstate 4
corridor to a height of 45 feet
was unanimously approved.
The eight signs that exceed the
new height limit would be al-
lowed to stay unless destroyed
by a hurricane or other natural
disaster. The law was drafted
at the request of commission-
ers, who sought a "balance
between aesthetics and visibil-
ity" along the corridor, officials
said.
"It definitely puts the hori-
.zons back to our community,"
Mayor Rick Lott said after the
vote.
Community activist Char-
lotte Butler-Nelson praised
commissioners for the law.
Tall signs, she said, "do not do
justice to this wonderful city."


"We don't want to look like a

PLANT CITY COMMISSION ACTION











You Ma Pay


For Fire Service


An assessment
proposal is OK'd,
but the city isn't
ready to act on it.
By RAY REYES
The Tampa Tribune
PLANT CITY Eager to find
new sources of money in the
wake of property tax reforms,
commissioners narrowly ap-
proved a resolution that gives
the city the option to charge
annual assessments to pay for
fire service.
If put into effect, residential
and commercial properties,
including churches, would be
charged annual fees for fire
protection, according to a city
staff report. The amount of the
fees has not been determined.
The resolution was ap-
proved Dec. 10 in a 3-2 vote.
The commissioners in favor
of the proposal said fire service
fees could supplement city
coffers because Florida's prop-
erty tax reforms reduced the
revenue of local governments.
"It's a tool we might want to
use if appropriate," Commis-
sioner Robert Brown said. "I
think we can use this as an
arrow in our quiver just in
case."
The city has no plans to
collect annual assessments for
fire protection, City Manager
David Sollenberger said. .
Commissioner Dan Rauler-
son, who cast a dissenting vote
along with Mayor Rick Lott,
agreed that the resolution was
"a viable option" but was un-
comfortable about the lack of
public input. Raulerson said
he was concerned residents
may feel that the commission
sprung "a surprise" on them

by approving the
resolution with-
out formal pub-
lic hearings or
workshops.
The assess-
ments would be
based on a for-
mula that would
include such fac-
tors as the prop-
erty's "historical
demand for
emergency ser-
vices," a city staff
report said
Steve Morris,
the minister of


education and administration
of First Baptist Church of Plant
City, worried how much in fees
First Baptist would pay: The
church is one of the city's
largest.
"We -have no idea what the
fee would be," Morris said. "It
could be $100. It could be
$1,000."
Morris said he is concerned
that smaller nonprofits would
not have the resources to pay
fire service fees. He said he
plans to get the word out to the
community.
"We will be scheduling
some meetings with churches
and nonprofits just in case this
impacts us," Morris said.
If the city exercises its op-
tion to collect fees for fire
service, then a series of public
hearings will be held on the
issue, Sollenberger said.
Thirty-four local govern-

PLANT CITY UPDATE


Sparkman Sets Sights
On Brown's Seat


Mike Sparkman, former
mayor and city commissioner,
has decided to seek Commis-
sioner Robert Brown's seat in
the April election.
Sparkman said he wanted
to recover the commission
Group 4 seat that he formerly
held. Brown won the seat after
Sparkman stepped down in'
2005.
Sparkman announced re-
cently he wanted to return to
the city commission, but
didn't say whether he would
seek Brown's seat or run
against Commissioner Bill
Dodson, who is also up for
re-election next year. Dodson
announced recently he will
seek another term in the
Group 3 seat.


Sparkman


Candidates for
commission run
at large but must
specify the seat,
they are seeking.
The elections are
nonpartisan, and
commissioners
serve three-year


terms.
Brown said he hasn't decid-
ed whether he will seek anoth-
er term. He said he will talk to
his family this month and
make an announcement in'
January.
George N. Newman

Watch Your ID
The topic was identity theft
at a recent business breakfast,
and the speaker was Karin
Klaassen, community rela-
tions manager at Consumer
Credit Counseling,Service of


Central Florida.
Klaassen told members of
the Greater Plant City Cham-
ber of Commerce that identity
thieves can be anyone from a
family member to an Internet
"pirate."
She said clues to identity
theft include unexplained
withdrawals or bills or unex-
pected denial of credit. She
recommended that everyone
shred documents with sensi-
tive information instead of
throwing them away, not
carry Social Security numbers
and monitor credit reports.
"We can never be too care-
ful," she said.

A Great 30 Years

owner of Ideas &
Innovations;
Closshey served a year as
chamber chair-
woman and has served in
numerous leadership roles.
Closshey said she joined the
chamber 30 years ago and
appreciates the city more as
she travels the world on busi-
ness.
"There is something special
about Plant City," said Closs-
hey, who is also on the board
of the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District.
"There is something unique
about Plant City."
She said she was "looking
forward to another 30 years"
as a chamber member.


Dave Nicholson

A Solemn Prayer
The Greater Plant City
Chamber of Commerce break-
fast meeting Dec. 12 included
a prayer as usual, but this one
went beyond giving thanks for
the food.
Betty Tower, a longtime
chamber leader, offered a
prayer for the family of Jordan
Hays, who was killed by a float
in the Plant City Christmas
Parade on Dec. 7. She asked
for divine strength for the
family.
Tower also asked for guid-
ance for city officials as they
continue to look into the acci-
dent.

THE MEMORIAL
SERVICE
Geographical distance and other
circumstances sometimes make it
necessary to remember the life of a
deceased individual who is present
only in spirit. If so, families and
friends may participate in a memorial
service that evokes remembrance
of the deceased without having the
body present. This evocation may
be conducted in word, song, and/or
pictures. Much as a person would
nostalgically thumb through an
album of photographs, a memorial
service may involve readings,
musical interludes, and recounting
of cherished thoughts. A memorial
service can be held instead of a.
funeral or in addition to it. There
might be a funeral in town where
the person lived and died and a later
memorial service where the deceased
grew up.
If you are thinking about a funeral or
memorial service as the best way to
say farewell, what are your goals for
the service? Take a-moment to write
them down. Many funeral directors
will be glad to assist with memorial
service planning whether using
the funeral home location or not,
but there will be a charge for such
services. At HAUGHT FUNERAL
HOME, our experienced staff is
available to answer questions and
assist with funeral arrangements.
Located at 708 Dr. Martin Luther
King Blvd. W., we can be reached at
813-717-9300.
Quote: "And our hearts.. .like muffled
drums, are beating funeral marches to
the grave."

By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
The Tampa Tribune
PLANT CITY Christmas is
coming early forsome needy
children in the Plant City area.
The Plant City Kiwanis Club
was busy last week gathering,
sorting and labeling toys to

dents.
"This is the 19th year our
Kiwanis Club has collected
toys for needy children," said


Robert Brown, a city commis-
sioner who founded the toy
drive.
He is the 2007 Kiwanis Club
toy drive committee chairman.
Brown was at Plant City Cor-
nerstone Center on Dec. 10
collecting toys for later dis-
tribution. He was joined by his


wife, Wendy, their son Andy
and the Kiwanis Club Treasur-
er Anna Reitz.
"Last year we distributed
3,961 gifts to 1,490 elementary
school students," Brown said.

Volunteers from businesses, clubs and Plant City High School will
help sort and wrap the gifts before they are delivered.


Heather Coats and Sandra Ri-
chie helped the others unload
the gifts.-
"This event is very special
and heartwarming to be a part
of," Smith said. "Helping little
children enjoy Christmas is
something we all want to do."
Once the toys and gifts are
catalogued, the schools will
send gift requests to the group.
"That will be when we wrap
the gifts and put the student's
name on the package," Reitz
said. "The gifts will then be
delivered to the schools for


distribution before the Christ-
mas break"
Plant City High School Key
Club members will help sort
and wrap the gifts.
"This Christmas will be
made a little better for many of
the children in the area," Rob-
ert Brown said. "We appreciate
all the contributors and the
help given to make this a big
success each year."

The plants connected with
Christmas have fascinating
and sometimes obscure stories
to explain why. They tend to
come from a mix of pagan and
Christian traditions.
There is a legend about
rosemary, for instance, that
says the Virgin Mary draped
her cloak over a rosemary bush
while the holy family Was flee-
ing Herod's wrath on their way
to Egypt. The flowers had been
white, but they took on the
blue hue of Mary's cloak, and
its sweet fragrance. Another
legend says Mary spread baby
Jesus' clothing on a rosemary
bush to dry, and its wonderful
scent is a reward for its humble
service.
Rosemary grows well here,
as long as it has mostly sun
and soil that is well watered
but never soggy. I've seen it
thriving in the desert, so we are
fortunate that it survives our
wet summers. Those of us who
know this plant cannot pass


Loiumnlsi


one without rubbing the
leaves, and the scent stays on
the hands for a long time.
There also is an herb called
Lady's Bedstraw, Galium ve-
rum, that Mary supposedly
used for the Christ child's bed.
The pleasantly scented leaves
and stems were long used for
mattress stuffing. These do not
grow here, but if you find dried
ones in an herb shop or cata-
logue, they are said to be effec-
tive in pillows.
Evergreen plants such as


holly, ivy, mistletoe and the
many coniferous trees dis-
played at Christmas were part
of nearly every winter celebra-
tion. Because they keep their
color and foliage through the
* short, cold days of winter, they
were a promise that life was
still vibrant and its abundance
would return. Thus, the song
"The Holly and The Ivy."
Christians early on learned to
make the most of pagan tradi-
tions and turned the prickly
leaves and blood-drop red ber-
ries of these plants into a sym-
bol of the crown of thorns.
Hollies of many kinds, with
smooth or prickly leaves, all
with red berries on the female
plants, grow well in Florida,
and some of them are natives.
We can grow many kinds of
ivy also, and these plants make
for good ground cover in
shade, or a cascading filler

foliage in containers. We can't
grow the Boston ivy that grows
on the back wall of Wrigley
Field, turns bright red in fall
and has red berries that are an
important source of food for
winter wildlife but are poison-
ous for people. The ivy we can
grow I have not seen bloom.
We have so much green and
color year-round in Florida
that, even with television, we
only briefly think of the dreari-
ness of northern winters, with
the outside world largely gray.
One of my favorite Christ-
mas songs from childhood
choir days rang out, "From the
manger bed what a path was
led, what a perfect holy way."
Another refers to .the Christ
child as the Christmas rose;
which may be why roses are so
often given as Christmas gifts.
Mistletoe myths started with
the Druids in Britain about 100
A.D. They thought mistletoe
could make miracles, help
cure diseases, protect them
from witches and help them
have more babies. So, in the
dark of winter, Druid priests
would cut mistletoe out of the
oak trees and give it to people
to hang in their houses.
The tradition of kissing un-
der mistletoe may have started
with a Viking legend around
800 A.D. The Vikings had many
gods. One of them, Balder, was
killed with a poison made from
mistletoe. His mother brought
him back to life after three
days by reversing the effects of
the poison. The details of that
reversal are unknown. When
Balder was revived, his mother
was so happy she kissed who-
ever walked under the mis-

The Tampa Tribune
MANGO Members of the
Greater Seffnher Chamber of
Commerce mixed barbecue
with charity last week when
they gathered for their annual
Christmas luncheon.
Area schools, charities and
civic groups received cash do-
nations from the chamber at
the event Thursday.
"Every year, the chamber
chooses charities important to
the community, the young and
families in need," Chamber
President Dennis Schrand said
as members feasted on a bar-
becue luncheon catered by
Hungry Harry's.
This year, the list of benefi-
ciaries included five local ele-
mentary schools Mango,
McDonald, Dover, Lopez and
Seffner and Burnett Middle-
School. Each school received
$175.

Consultant Tucks Culture Into Cards


A woman's job led
her to a way to
encourage fellow
Latinas.
By ID'ANN LAWRENCE WHITE
The Tampa Tribune
RIVERVIEW Like the greet-
ing cards she's marketing,
Ivette Mayo's career evolved
through fate rather than de-
sign.
"I was a corporate trainer in
the airline industry when the
Sept. 11 terrorist attacks oc-
curred and shook up the entire
industry," she said. "There
were thousands of layoffs. It
was really dismal. Even those
of us who weren't laid off were
affected. It affected our hearts
and souls, looking at empty
desks, saying goodbye to
friends, guilt over still having a
job. My heart just wasn't in it
anymore. I needed to redefine
myself."
Among the parts of her job
she enjoyed most was cultural
training: teaching people to


relate to others of different
cultures and ethnicities.
With America becoming
more multicultural and the
business, world becoming
more global, she began to ex-
plore the idea of helping peo-
ple in all industries, large and
small, better relate to people of
'diverse cultures.
The result is Yo Soy I Am
LLC. Opened in April 2006, the
business offers private con-
sulting and workshops to help
businesspeople understand
customers and employees of
different cultures better, build
good relationships and imn-
prove effectiveness when deal-
ing with people of different
ethnicities.
"My goal is to make people
think differently about the way
they treat others and how it
affects their business," Mayo
said. "Even though people may
share the same core values,
they might express them dif-
ferently so, without realizing it,
you may be offending some-
one. So it's helpful to be in-
formed and understand some

view has branched out, launching a Latina greeting card line.


of the cultural nuances. Some-
times the differences are so
slight, they're not even appar-
ent. It can be something as
simple as a tone of voice or the
greetings you use the first time
you meet a person. It can even


vary from one part of the Unit-
ed States to the next."
Mayo said she has been a
consultant for many business-
es that have seen a slide in
revenue because of not being
able to communicate with cus-

much time on

tomers.
"You don't have to speak the
same language," she said. "But
you do have to practice pa-
tience and respect. You owe it
to yourself to extend that
hand."
Her clients range from law-
yers, physicians and small res-
taurants to large staffing and

"I see the Tribune as a partner."

As a small-business owner, Alice Holden Bock from The Dance Center and
Brandon Ballet relies on her Tribune advertising consultant to be on her toes.
From hands-on customer service to attentive follow-through
to weekly advertising that works.

As a result, Alice's business has achieved growth and
recognition in the community.

"People know our school, our ballet company, and I really believe
it's because we advertise in The Tampa Tribune."

tletoe.
We have mistletoe growing
wild in our oak trees and about
this time of year, when many
oak leaves have fallen, we see
the dark green, bushel-basket-
sized clumps of it. Mistletoe is
a parasite that sinks it roots
into the tree and takes the
nutrients it needs. I had not
seen it growing until we
moved to Florida, and I find it
fascinating, probably because
it was an important part of
Christmas in my childhood
home.
Today's Pick
The East Palatka holly was
discovered in 1927 near East
Palatka in northeastern Flori-


da, where it is often found in
swampy areas along roadsides.
It is one of several natural
hybrids related to Ilex cassine,
or Dahoon holly and Ilex opa-
ca, or American holly. Being
selected as the holly for the
Olympic Games in Atlanta in
1996 added to its popularity.
The trees are evergreen, all
female and can grow 30 feet
tall in light, though they will
stay smaller if grown in a con-
tainer. They take on a nice
pyramid form as they mature,
and the red berries are quite
decorative, especially near the
top of the tree. Birds love the
fruit. They have inconspicuous
white flowers in spring. The
rounded leaves usually have
only one spine at the end.
They are hardy throughout
northern and Central Florida
but don't do well in. the far
south. They also grow along
the western and southern bor-
ders of the United States, as far

Tell you about a new word
I've just learned for something


I've been doing for a long time.
The New Oxford American
Dictionary chose locavore, a
person who seeks out locally
produced food, as its 2007
word of the year. The local
foods movement is gaining
momentum as people discover
that the best-tasting and most
sustainable choices are foods
that are fresh, seasonal and
grown -close to home. Some
locavores draw inspiration
from the 100-Mile Diet or from
advocates of local eating such
as Barbara Kingsolver. Others
just follow their taste buds to
farmers' markets, community-
supported agriculture pro-
grams and community gar-
dens. Check out the produce

Team Battles Mental Doubts


"We're a good
team" that needs to
jump that hurdle,
the coach says.
By DAREK SHARP
The Tampa Tribune
PLANT CITY When a team
thinks it is headed to the state
playoffs and has an official's
whistle change everything, it's
a hard feeling to shake.
New Plant City High basket-
ball coach Dale Chambers
thinks his Raiders can do it.
But the talented bunch is try-
ing to get over a bit of a mental
hump.
"We're 'almost there. I'd like
to see just a little bit more
resiliency," Chambers said.
"We're definitely a good team,
and these are great guys to
coach. We just need to get past
that hurdle."
Lakeland, the class of Dis-


trict 6A-8, beat Plant City 80-60
last week, but the game was
close until the fourth quarter.
The Dreadnaughts are a good
example of the Raiders' plight:
a strong team, one that on the
court Plant City can hang with,
but in the end the Raiders lose
out.
The same thing happened in
a thrilling regular-season con-
test against an undefeated
Lakeland team last year. In the
district tournament semifinals,
the Raiders thought they had
beaten Sarasota on two late
free throws by Rod Henderson,
but the Sailors were awarded
two foul shots after time had
expired.
Then in overtime, Sarasota
again sank two free throws to
beat Plant City and end the
Raiders' season. Chambers
can see thoughts of that kind
of outcome linger in his play-
ers.


"It seems like when things
go bad in a game there's that
little doubt in their eyes," he
said.
But there's no doubting
Plant City has the ability.
Channing Woodall, a point
guard, is shooting 60 percent,
an incredible number for an
outside shooter, while scoring
nearly 20 points per game and
leading the way in assists.
"He's very consistent, and
Rod has been, too," Chambers
said. He said he's also excited
about the development of Josh
Thiebe, a first-year Raider who
is starting to get more playing
time.
Coming up, Plant City will
get a few tests, as Chambers
was able to get his team into
the KSA Holiday Basketball
Tournament in Orlando.
The event at the Disney
Wide World of Sports Complex
features more than three doz-


en schools competing in
brackets of eight. Plant City is
in the Mickey Bracket and will
open against a team from Cali-
fornia, El Toro High School.
That game will be at 11:30
a.m. Dec. 27. Other Florida
teams in the bracket are Tim-
ber Creek, Freedom High (of
Orlando) and West Boca Ra-
ton, as well as squads from
New Jersey, Pennsylvania and,
Georgia.
The Raiders got revenge on
Sarasota with a 50-32 victory
Dec. 7. Henderson and Steve
Hardnett were in double fig-
ures.
Plant City's first game after
the break should be a great
one: the Raiders host Durant
Jan. 11. The Cougars beat Plant
City in this season's first meet-
ing.

Dave Olm's Pro Shop Four
Aces League unquestionably is
the top league at Pin Chasers
Veterans, where high-average
bowlers compete.
An 801 series and 299 game
last week provide proof.
However, the Hits and Mis-
sers League, competing on the
same Wednesday evening as
the Four Aces, is a step be-
hind.
A perfect game two weeks
ago and a 299 last week are
viable evidence.
Brian Aaron's 284-258-259 -
801 and David Tuma's 299-719,
leaving a solid eight pin on the
final shot, highlighted the
Four Aces League. It was Aar-
on's first 800 series, although
the young man (20) doesn't
have a perfect game to his
credit. For senior citizen Tu-
ma (64), the perfect game
marked his second lifetime.
John Collins' first 300 and
Gary Vetelo's 299-743 lit up
the Hits and Missers League.
Going down in ball weight (16
pounds to 15) and a different
ball drilling played a big part
in Collins' perfect. Vetelo has
two 300s to his credit.

FLORIDA LANES: Darren Walk-
er's 290-804 led the men,
while Vicki Mark's 276-613
paced the women last week.

Tom D'Antoni 245-638 and
Tony Cuebas 243-620. Women

Bullets White Gets To Tournament Seinififials


The AAU team
finished third out
of 36 teams.
By DAREK SHARP
The Tampa Tribune
PLANT CITY The Bullets
White 11 and under baseball
team finished strong after
starting the season in the lower
division and working its way
up.
The Amateur Athletic Union
squad, made up mostly of
Plant City Little League play-
ers, finished third out of 36
teams at the 2007 Fall Classic
in November.
"Hard work pays off. And
these special ballplayers
showed that with talent and
hard work you can reach your
goals," coach Tommy Mat-
thews said.
The Bullets started the sea-
son in September playing in
the Matrix division, then
moved up into the Fire divi-
sion, winning it to land in the
ICE Division.
Playing in the ICE bracket at
the Fall Classic, the Bullets
were seeded eighth but ended
up making the semifinals. For

The Bullets White baseball team finished its season 18-5-1. Pictured are: front row from left, Brandon
Colbert, Marcus Maley, Quenton Williams, Cole Rogers and Nuno Ontiveros; middle row, Roberto

the year the Bullets went 18-
5-1.
They started off the Auburn-


dale tournament in November
with a 17-2 win and won their
second game 12-2. In an elim-


nation contest against the
Central Florida Diamond-
backs, they won 8-6.


Nuno Ontiveros made a dra-
matic game-saving catch with
the bases loaded to end it.
Then the Bullets lost 8-2 in
the semifinal to the Florida
Fire, an Orlando team that
won the tournament.
"Many teams commented
that they enjoy playing the
Bullets White because the
games are so competitive, and
the parents behave themselves
so well," Matthews said.
Plant City players such as
P.J. Almon, Trey Matthews,
Spanky Hakkarainen, Quenton
Williams, Cole Rogers, J.J.
Niekro and Ontiveros have
played together since they
were 6 or 7 years old.
Roberto Garcia, the team
leader in home runs, and Kody
Glausier are also from Plant
City, with Valrico residents
Marcus Maley, Brandon Col-
bert and Josh Mejia rounding
out the roster.
Tommy Matthews credited
his assistant coaches, Mark
Rogers and Sal Giardina, for
helping develop the team.

Public Access For Preserve OKd


The county sticks
to grant rules and
allots $801,000 for
amenities.
By TOM BRENNAN
The Tampa Tribune
LITHIA Hillsborough
County commissioners have
decided to spend $801,000 to
make a 3,500-acre preserve ac-
cessible to the public rather
than not spending the money
and risking having to pay back
millions of dollars in state
grants they have spent buying
the land.
Commissioners without
comment agreed Dec. 5 to let
the county's Parks, Recreation
and Conservation Department
build three entrances to prop-
erty the county spent $14 mil-
lion acquiring in 2003 and
2004.
The $801,000 had been fro-
zen because of fears proposed
state property tax relief might


put more pressure on county
coffers.
But park officials worried
the county might have to give
back $9.2 million in grants
from the Florida Communities
Trust if the project weren't
budgeted by the fiscal year
beginning in October.
"We don't want to be in
violation of our contracts,"
said John Brill, parks depart-
ment spokesman. "We don't
want a bad relationship with
them [the state trust] because
they have been such good
partners."
Conditions of those grants
mandate the county provide
public access, make park im-
provements and develop envi-
ronmental management plans
for the preserve, a swath of
undeveloped land south of the
Alafia River and west of Lithia-
Pinecrest Road.
The county will build en-
trances on the north side of
FishHawk Boulevard, at
Boyette and Balm Boyette


roads and next to Lithia
Springs Park. .
Preliminary plans call for
small parking lots at the Fish-
Hawk Boulevard and Lithia
Springs entrances, each with
about 28 spaces, two- picnic
shelters and a play area.
The Boyette entrance would
have a paved parking lot for 60
cars, an open playing field with
a baseball backstop, two picnic
shelters, a double basketball
court, a playground, an in-
formation kiosk and a bicycle
rack. Brill said recreation facil-
ities at that entrance would be
more elaborate because the
property is on uplands that
have been disturbed and are
no longer pristine preservation
land.
Brill said the FishHawk and


Lithia Springs entrances will
be for passive pursuits such as
hiking or bird watching.
Each of the entrances also
will serve as trailheads for an
interconnected network of
walking trails with 6-, 5- and
3-mile legs.
There isn't a timetable for
construction, but the grants
were approved with a comple-
tion target of August 2011.
"We are at ground zero," he
said. "We have to start with
drawings and permits. It isn't
something that is going to
happen next month."
The county acquired the
land in three transactions as
part of its Environmental
Lands Acquisition and Protec-
tion Program. The first 1,450
acres were purchased from the


It isn't something that is going to happen

developers of FishHawk Ranch
in January 2003 for $5.2 mil-
lion. The trust reimbursed the
county half of the purchase
price.
The county bought an ad-
jacent 1,085 acres in March
2004 for $8.8 million. The state
trust picked up 75 percent of
the tab.
Also during March 2004, the
county negotiated a conserva-
tion easement for 600 acres the
Gulf Ridge Council of Boy
Scouts owns along the south-
ern banks of the Alafia River.
The Scouts kept ownership,
but the land cannot be devel-
oped.
Brill said his department will
use existing trails and roads
where possible and blaze new
ones to connect them.
"We're doing this project
because we promised we
would," he said.
