individual schools will read
their work at the observance.


"It teaches them an appreci-
ation of what Veterans Day is
all about," Willis said. Addi-
tionally, over the years, veter-
ans at the ceremony have re-
marked that they have found
the students' words much
more moving than those of
politicians and other tradition-
al speakers, Willis said.

Eagle Extravaganza
A Real Carnival
Mark your calendar for Fri-
day for Walden Lake Elemen-
tary School's annual Eagle Ex-
travaganza.
The school's big blowout
was held in the spring until last
year, when the carnival was
moved to the fall to take ad-
vantage of better weather and
a time of year less cluttered
with other activities. The cal-
endar move was so successful
that school officials decided to
keep the October schedule.
This year's extravaganza will
feature the same school carni-
val atmosphere, Assistant
Principal Elisa Walker said in a
statement. The extravaganzas
have been a school tradition
since 1991.


The festivities are from 4:30
to 7:30 p.m. and include food
and entertainment.
Each classroom will set up
booths. Games, geared for pre-
school through elementary
children, will include ring toss,
duck pond, spin art and oth-
ers, said Robin Stasiak, whose
daughter Emma is a first-grad-
er at the school.
Other activities include
face-painting, a moonwalk
and cakewalk. Food and drinks
will be available.
Tickets are required for the
food, refreshments and games.
Tickets are four for $1, and
most booths require three or
four tickets.
There will be drawings for
more than 20 gift baskets.
Also at the extravaganza, the
school's fourth- and fifth-
grade chorus will perform un-
der the pavilion at 4:30 p.m.
Agencies such as the Plant City
Police Department and Plant
City Fire Rescue are expected
to have vehicles on display.
Money raised at the Eagle
Extravaganza helps with needs
at the 850-student school at
2800 Turkey Creek Road.
For information or to make
a business donation, call the


school at (813) 757-9433.

Commissioners Surprise
City Manager
Sneaking something past
veteran City Manager David
Sollenberger is difficult at best,
but drafting a surprise resolu-
tion honoring him required
real behind-the-scenes ma-
neuvering.
The covert operation was
most noble: Plant City com-
missioners wanted to honor
Sollenberger's career mile-
stone, 45 years in local govern-
ment.
Unbeknown to Sollenberger
- and purposely left off the
printed agenda the city man-
ager oversees Mayor Rick
Lott pulled the proverbial rab-
bit out of the hat during the
presentations portion of the
Oct 13 commission meeting.
Commissioners, Lott ex-
plained to Sollenberger, asked
City Attorney Ken Buchman to
draft the resolution, some-
thing accomplished while Sol-
lenberger was out of town for
several days.
"And we gotcha," Lott said
with a wide grin.


"Sure did," acknowledged
Sollenberger, visibly pleased
by the sneak attack.
"This is the best job I've ever
had," Sollenberger saidT. "It's
really been a great six years
here."
Sollenberger said he is
blessed with a good staff and
commissioners who really un-
derstand.
"I don't get micro-managed.
It just works the way it
should," he said. "The people
here are just really terrific," he
said of the city's residents.
Oh, and Sollenberger's ab-
sence from work that made the
surprise possible? He was par-
ticipating in the 94th annual
conference of the Internation-
al City/County Management
Association in Richmond, Va.
There, the 9,000-member
organization honored Sollen-
berger's 45-year career in local
government, from California
to Minnesota and, finally,
Plant City, via Sarasota.
Sollenberger had intended
to bring his .award to the Plant
City meeting to show commis-
sioners, he said, but after so
many years on the job, "You
get forgetful."

S........... ... gParadise Inc. makes candied fruit that

PLANT CITY The holiday
season begins early at Par-
adise Inc., the world's
largest producer of a baking
ingredient few know by its
official name: glace fruit.
That French term invariably
causes confusion; so Paradise
calls it "can-
died fruit,"
concedes PARADISE

the distinc- million pounds

Candied strawberries, cher-
ries and pineapple the latter
two in festive colors are
among the fruits Paradise pro-
duces and packages for home
baking needs, as well as for
bakeries, including the nearly
century-old granddaddy of the
fruitcake industry, Claxton.
"We've done business with
them [Georgia-based Claxton]


for years and years," said
Schulis, who joined the com-
pany in 1979 after receiving a
finance degree from Florida
State University. He is senior
vice president of the publicly
traded company.
Most of Paradise's annual
production of 9 million
pounds of candied fruit is sold
through gro-
cery chains

of candied fruit


across the
country and
throughout
the Caribbe-
an.
"Our can-
died fruit is a
traditional
seasonal holi-
day product,"
Schulis said.
During
fruit produc-
tion start-


ing in March or April and
followed by the peak shipping
period of August through mid-
November up to 225 work-
ers are employed at the plant.
In addition to requiring
many workers, creating can-
died fruit takes time.
For example, pineapple,
which arrives at Paradise from
the, Far East in large ,chunks
packed in brine, a preserva-







tive, is cooked in corn sweet-
ener for up to 14 days.
"The fruit if you think of it
as a sponge absorbs that"
heated syrup, becoming in-
creasingly sweeter as it cooks,
Schulis said. Once the sweet-
ness of the fruit equals that of
the syrup in which it is con-
tained, the vat is drained, an
even sweeter syrup is injected,
and cooking resumes.
Once the process is com-
plete, the fruit is drained and
packaged by assembly line
workers at the production fa-
cility and warehouse.
"Our most important asset
is the people we have here
working for us," Schulis said.
"Many of them are local, from
the Plant City/Lakeland area."
The Paradise line those
workers process and package
includes candied ginger, or-
ange peel, lemon peel, a fruit-
cake mix, a cherry/pineapple
mix, an old English fruit and
peel mix and citron, a yellow
semitropical fruit resembling a
lime or lemon, only larger and
less acidic.
Every container packaged
for retail sale bears the Plant
City name just above the Para-
dise logo.
"As far back as I can remem-
ber," said Mayor Rick Lott,
"Paradise Fruit has been an
important part of our commu-
nity and has done a wonderful
job branding our community
throughout the world."
Paradise and several other
local foodprocessors are hid-
den jewels helping contribute
to a steady employment base,
Lott said.
The lid of each plastic con-
tainer from Paradise contains
a fold-out, full-color label that
includes two recipes for that
candied fruit inside, plus a
coupon for a 50-cent savings
on a future purchase.
"Many of the recipes were
developed right here at Para-
dise," said Schulis, calling the
cherry chocolate chip cookies,
one of the featured recipes,
"absolutely outstanding."
Information the company
has obtained from customers
indicates baking from scratch
is making a comeback, even
among the young longing to
recapture family traditions,
"which is excellent for us,"
Schulis said.
Paradise recently debuted
its Think Fruit line of natural
dehydrated fruits to garnish
cereal, salads or ice cream and
other desserts.
The new products come in
4-ounce shaker bottles and
1.5-ounce single-serve pouch-
es- ideal for -lunchboxes, and

backpacks.
Varieties include sliced cin-
namon apple, strawberry,
pineapple chunk, sliced
peaches and cranberries.
The company has annual
sales of $26 million, about 30
percent of which is derived
from its Paradise Plastics divi-
sion, a custom injection-mold
operation producing every-
thing from containers to
heavy-gauge parts requiring
computer-assisted forming.
The company made its Plant
City debut in 1962 after Frank


A. Weaner bought several Polk
County companies, consoli-
dated them and moved opera-
tions here. He renamed the
reorganized company Para-
dise.
Weaner, a Detroit native and
Tampa Bay area banker and
investor, died in 1997 at age 89.
His portrait hangs in the
reception area of the company
near a sign that greets visitors:
"Welcome to Paradise."

The company supplies candied fruit for Claxton, a century-old
Georgia company that is widely known for its holiday fruitcakes.

But the city passes
on scheduling the
Christmas parade.
By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The Plant City
Christmas Parade will remain
a Friday night tradition.
At its Oct. 13 meeting, the
Plant City Commission sup-
ported safety recommenda-
tions by a task force formed to
refine parade safety after a
float fatally crushed a 9-year-
old boy helping distribute
candy in the Dec. 7 proces-
sion. But commissioners said
scheduling is best left to orga-
nizers.
Shifting the event to Satur-
day recommended to ease
weeknight traffic congestion
- would create a slew of
scheduling problems, Frank
LaBarbera, parade co-chair-
man, told commissioners.
He said most parade par-
ticipants from Shriners to
school bands and commer-
cial floats, including the one
Santa Claus traditionally rides
- are booked every Decem-
ber weekend leading up to
Christmas.
In response, Commissioner
Mike Sparkman made a mo-
tion to strike the recommen-
dation to reschedule the pa-
rade.
"This commission. has no
business setting the dates,"
he said.
Mayor Rick Lott said he,
too, opposed rescheduling
and pointed out it was not a
safety recommendation,
merely police Chief Bill
McDaniel's suggestion to
eliminate impacts on Friday
rush hour traffic.
Support for the remaining
seven recommendations was
not unanimous.
Commissioner Bill Dodson
urged the ban on candy and
beads be replaced with a pol-
icy dictating safe distribution
of the trinkets.
"Eliminate throwing beads
from moving cars or moving
floats," but allow distribution
"by those who might walk
alongside the route" close
enough to hand the items to
spectators, Dodson said. "I
don't feel it necessary to over-
react by banning beads or


candy."
Lott said although he
would like to retain the tradi-
tion of candy and beads, "I
have a hard time going
against the recommendations
of that committee," whose
eight members included
McDaniel and other safety
experts.
The resolution passed 4-1,
with Dodson dissenting.
Prior to the vote, a spokes-
man for the Downtown Plant
City Merchants and Business
Association urged commis-
sioners to reschedule the pa-
rade. Jon Davis offered peti-
tions signed by hundreds of

downtown property owners
and workers who agree a Sat-
urday parade would reduce
Friday gridlock. If it is too late
for this year, reschedule for
2009, Davis urged.
A primary safety recom-
mendation in the resolution
requires parade organizers
develop and enforce float
standards that, at a mini-
mum, prohibit "outrigger-
style" wheels that protrude
beyond the float or other ve-
hicle.

Commission Reaffirms


Ban On Beads, Candy


Items of interest from the
Oct. 13 Plant City Commission
meeting included:
Commissioners agreed to
advertise for new bids for con-
struction of concrete basket-
ball courts at Mike Sansone
Park off Park Road.
I Construction Group of Val-
rico submitted the low bid of
$134,791 to build two courts
and was awarded the project
Sept. 22. The bid, however,
was rejected when it was dis-
covered the company lacked
the requisite contractor li-
cense, City Manager David


Sollenberger said.
Commissioners adopted
an emergency ordinance ex-
tending mandatory water re-
strictions ordered by the
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District.
The Brooksville-based agen-
cy voted Sept. 30 to extend its
current water shortage order
through Feb. 27. The order
restricts outdoor lawn and
landscape irrigation to one day
per week.
The region still feels the ef-

PARADE BAN

Jordan stepped in front of its

candy. The protruding
wheels rolled over him when
the float moved forward, ac-
cording to a city report.
The other provisions of the
resolution are:
Limit all parades to 100

Maintain strict police de-

The resolution lacks en-

ties provided by an ordi-

did not recommend an ordi-

Buchman said.
"It's a policy statement of
the city," Buchman said later
of the resolution. Anyone ap-
plying for a city parade per-
mit will be advised distribu-
tion of candy, beads and oth-
er items is banned, he said.
On Jan. 14, commissioners
approved a motion banning
candy and beads, Buchman
explained later.
"This readopts that ban,"
he said.

"So far, the nuisance plants
on Sam Cooper Lake appear to
be under control," Sollenberg-
er reported.
The 10-acre lake at Dr. Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. Boulevard
and Lake Street is the center-
piece of Samuel W. Cooper
Park.
Hillsborough County Traf-
fic Engineering has advised the
city it will perform another
study to see if the intersection
of Charlie Griffin and Mud
Lake roads should be a four-
way stop.
Responding to identical re-
quests from the city in January
2006 and November 2007, the
county performed two studies
that determined additional
stop signs are unwarranted.
Since then, however, addition-
al residential subdivisions
have been developed in the
area.
Commissioner Mike Spark-
man vowed that if this latest
effort fails, he will work with
Hillsborough County Commis-
sioner Al Higgenbotham, who
lives in the Plant City area, to
secure approval for the four-
way stop.

Food For Thought
In two recent studies, older people
who consumed more fish (or
its omega 3 fats) did better on
cognitive tests than those who ate
less. A Norwegian study revealed
that people in their 70's who ate
more fish scored higher on tests
of memory, thinking speed and
attention than those who consumed
less. No added benefit was seen
beyond three ounces of fish a day.
In another study of Dutch adults,
aged 50 to 70, those with higher
blood levels of omega 3 fatty acids
had less of a decline after three
years in test scores measuring
thinking speed compared to people
with lower levels.

Plant City claims a
hotly contested
third place in a
district tourney.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY There was no
doubt about the top two teams
at the District 2A-11 girls golf
tournament as Durant and
Wharton cruised over the rest
of the field.
The drama was about which
-team would finish in third
place -, and what drama it
was. Plant City edged a pack of
squads vying for the third spot
in the district, the last position
reserved for teams to move on
to the regional tourney.
"I was pacing back and forth
the whole time. I was definitely
more nervous than anyone
there," Raider head coach Meg
Cimino said.
Her Raiders had only lost
twice all season, but one of
those defeats was to New-
some, and the Wolves were
one of the squads close to
.Plant City for third place as the
round progressed. .
In the end, Plant City fin-
. ished a scant five shots ahead
of Newsome at the 2A-11 girls
tourney, held Oct. 13 at Heri-
tage Isles in Tampa.
The district tournaments
turned out- to be quite suc-
cessful for both the Raiders
and Cougars. Plant City's boys
also advanced to the regional
tourney, which was scheduled
to be held Monday.
Durant's girls and Plant
City's boys both were hoping
to finish in the top two as


teams at the regional tourney,
which would earn them a trip
to next week's 2A state tourna-
ment.
The Raider girls harbor no
such hopes this season, but
that does not make their dis-
trict finish less of an accom-
plishment. The last time Plant
City's season lasted past the
district tournament was in Ci-
mino's playing days in the
mid-1980s at Plant City High.
Cimino was particularly
pleased at how her freshman-
dominated team handled the
pressure.
"We all knew it was Durant
and Wharton, and then third
place was up for grabs," Cimi-
no said. "I didn't tell them how
close it was, just told them to
make every stroke count and
they really played the last cou-
ple of holes very well."
Kelsey Jensen and Belinda
George, both ninth-graders,
, led the Raiders with scores of
88 and 92, respectively, and
Jordan Joyner carded a 93.
Joyner shook off a shot into the
water to manage a bogey on
the final hole.
Another freshman, Savan-
nah Joyner, completed the
team's score (383) by shooting
a 110.
Newsome finished up at 388
and Freedom (403), and
Bloomingdale (408) also chal-
lenged the Raiders for third
place.
Durant and Wharton, by
comparison, were way out in
front. The Cougars' score
made them an obvious con-
tender for the state tourney.

finished in the top 10 with
three players shooting in the
70s.


Freshman Madison Opfer
went two-under par 70 to win
the individual medalist honors
by one shot over King's Kelsey
Gibson. Cougar sophomore
Erika Wardzinski shot 73, and
top player Amy West struggled
by her standards but still had a
76. Kerrie Reinhardt chipped


in with an 83.
The 302 total, by compari-
son, was 48 shots lower than
that of 2A-District 10 champi-
on Plant. Wharton finished 21
shots behind the Cougars.
Plant City's boys finished
just one shot behind host King
at the district event, hosted by
the Lions at Temple Terrace
Golf Club. Seniors Kyle Martin
(79) and Brad Hall (84) posted
the top Raider scores during a
very windy round that made
the course much tougher to
navigate.
In fact, Martin was the only
player besides individual med-
alist Ian McConnell of River-
view to shoot below 80.
McConnell carded a 74.
Freshman Connor Hurst
(87) and Nick Jones (88)
rounded out the Raiders team
score (338), which was five
shots better than that of third-
place Newsome. Riverview
and Wharton both came with-
in three strokes of Newsome
for the last regional spot.
Durant's Eric Soule shot an
84, good enough to advance
him to regionals as an individ-
ual.
The state tournament is a
36-hole event to be held Tues-
day and Oct. 29. The boys
event is at Providence Golf &
Country Club in Davenport
while the girls play at Ridge-
wood Lakes, also in Daven-
port.

It's Home Sweet Home, Finally, For Raiders


Raider Stadium turf
gets the OK for
football action.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The Plant City
Raiders are finally, really, at
home this week.
And it's a pretty good time
for them to be there.
Raider Stadium has been
deemed fit for football action,
and that is what Plant City and
Newsome will be providing
Friday in what could turn out
to be the game of the season
for the hosts. Plant City, thanks
to a thrilling Oct. 10 victory
over East Bay, is back in con-


trol of its playoff destiny but
must defeat Newsome to keep
it that way.
"You always want to play at
home," Raider head coach Ja-
son Strunk said. "It hurts not
having the familiar elements of
a home game. The good thing
is we have a great new surface
for our players to play on. That
is the most important thing. It
has been a long process, but it
is now finally done."
Strunk especially thanked
school administrators Trent
Hobbs, Traci Durrance and
Philip Balliet along with assis-
tant coach Gardner Box for
their efforts.
Hillsborough County's Ath-
letic Department has been


overseeing the progress of the
new Raider Stadium turf,
which was installed before the
regular season but took longer
than expected to form into a
strong, safe surface. Last week,
county Athletic Director Lan-
ness Robinson and other offi-
cials gave the nod of approval.
"There were a couple of
spots we weren't sure about,
so we had some [Raider] play-
ers put on their cleats and
actually run around on it,"
Robinson said.
Plant City's first three home
games, as well as its preseason
contest, were played at the site
of the team that was supposed
to be the visitor. The exception
was the East Bay game, which

was held at Durant. It was
believed Durant also may have
to host this week's action.
Against East Bay, Plant City
scored with mere seconds re-
maining to win 27-23. Line-
backer and running back
standout Duran Lowe scored
the winning touchdown on a
six-yard run, and the Raider
offense had by far its best
performance of the season.
East Bay was considered the
favorite to win the district.
Quarterback Clint Stearns
ran for two touchdowns but
just as importantly saw the
passing game get on track,
tossing for more than 150
yards.
Strunk said his team en-
joyed the atmosphere for its
"home game" at Durant.
"I want to thank Durant for
helping us out and letting us
play there. Our two schools are
rivals, but Durant put aside
that rivalry and helped out in a
tremendous way. I am very
appreciative of that," he add-
ed.
Though the Raiders are at
their true home this week, the
going should be tough against
Newsome, which has been led
almost completely by its de-
fense. Newsome's first District
5A-7 game turned into a battle
of the defenses, with the
Wolves outlasting Brandon
3-0. It was Newsome's second
shutout of the year, and in a


third victory, the Wolves lim-
ited. Durant to six points.
How important was the East
Bay win for Plant City? That
last-second score turned the
Raiders from a near-elimina-
tion scenario into one where
they completely control their
playoff fate. If Plant City wins
its last two district games, the
Raiders will at worst finish in a
three-way tie for first place.
As good as that sounds, Fri-
day still is a near do-or-die
situation for the Raiders. A
second 5A-7 defeat would
force the Raiders to hope for a
handful of other results to fall
their way and that would be
just to hope for second place.
"I am happy for the seniors,"
Strunk said. "They get a
chance to play two meaningful
games at home. You could not
ask for anything else."
Newsome and Blooming-
dale currently lead 5A-7 both
with 1-0 records. Both teams
have had their bye weeks al-
ready, meaning both have
three more district games re-
maining. Plant City and East
Bay are both 1-1 while Bran-
don, idle this week, is 0-2.
If Plant City wins Friday, the
Raiders can still be district
champions, and if East Bay
happens to defeat Blooming-
dale, there would be a four-
way tie for first place. -
Kickoff at Raider Stadium is
at 7:30 p.m.

A Pioneer Celebration


A great deal of fun
for everyone is on

"This year will be bigger and
better than ever," she said.
"Hundreds of volunteers and
dozens of vendors and exhib-

PLANT CITY Pig Jam, a
daylong barbecue competition
and celebration of grilled
meat, will be Nov, 22, the sixth
year for the popular family
festival.
More than 50 professional
chefs from across the nation


will fire up their grills in hopes
of taking home ribbons, cash
awards and bragging rights as
purveyors of Florida's best
barbecue.
The day will offer something
for everyone, said Marion
Smith, president of the Greater
Plant City Chamber of Com-
merce, sponsor of the event


that last year drew an estimat-
ed 10,000 people.
There will be musical enter-
tainment, games for children
and, perhaps most important-
ly, an opportunity to sample
some world-class barbecue.
Most of the competitors will be
selling their ribs, pork, other
barbecue and side dishes pre-


pared at the festival.
For college gridiron die-
hards, Budweiser sponsors a
sports tent with big-screen
televisions tuned to the Satur-
day football games.
"We don't want anyone to
have an excuse not to come
out to Pig Jam," Smith said.
The competition,, sanc-


tioned by the Kansas City Bar-

sions for professionals and
amateurs, and a third for chil-
dren.

the clever name firefighters'
have given their primary fund-
raiser at Dinosaur World
theme park.
The fourth annual Cork
Knights Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment benefit will be from 7 to
11 p.m. today through Oct. 31.
"Basically, it's a safe place
for kids to go for Halloween,"
said Tony Huntley, chief of the
27-member department. "It's
a haunted trail" through Dino-
saur World, featuring five
stretches, each with a different
theme, he said.
"It's a good walk, so they get
their money's worth," Huntley
said, adding that over the
years, customers have likened
it to Halloween events at major
theme parks.
Younger children might find
it frightening, "But the way it's
set up they can bypass a good
portion of the scarier stuff and
still go into the park with par-
ents and enjoy some of the
activities," including a lighted
playground and concessions,
Huntley said.
Admission is $12.75 for ages
13 and older and $9.75 for ages
3 to 12.
Dinosaur World is just off
Interstate 4 at Branch Forbes
Road, Exit 17.
Advance tickets provide a $3
discount and are available on-
line at Corkknightsofscream-
s.com.
Advance discounted. tickets
r are also available at the fire
station, 5302 Thonotosassa
Road, Plant City, at Forbes
Road next to Keel & Curley
Winery.
Hoofing It With Spirits
For those who want to mix
terror with a little exercise,
there's the Hopewell Lantern
Ghost Walk, a Halloween night
benefit back for its second
year.
The Oct. 31 walk starts and
ends at McCall Park at Drane
,and Collins streets in down-
town Plant City. Registration is
from 6 to 6:45 p.m., the walk at
7. -
In addition to the walk, the
price includes ghost stories by
members of Plant City Enter-
tainment community theater
group and, while supplies last,
hot dogs and soft drinks. Addi-
tionally, there will be live mu-
sical entertainment in the park
frontf&t-.lOp.n.-. < ; f: 'i --..


Tribune file photos (2007)
Homes along the route of the Hopewell Lantern Ghost Walk,
which starts and ends at McCall Park, often show their spirit.

Participants are asked to
bring a flashlight or battery-
powered lantern to help light
the path.
"We had people do that last -
year to add light along path-
ways in the historical district,"
said Marsha Passmore, direc-
tor of outreach for Hopewell
Funeral Home & Memorial
Gardens, sponsor of the event.
"It was lot of fun and it helps -
you to see the ghosts better."
The cost is $10 for ages 16
and older and $5 for ages 8 to
15. Proceeds benefit Unity in
the Community.
"We don't make it so scary
younger children can't come,
if their parents think they're up
to it," Passmore said of the
walk of a little over a mile.
Wear comfortable shapes, she
adds.

Robert Brown died
of cancer Oct. 12.
He was 49.
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Former city
Commissioner Robert P.
Brown was remembered last
week by friends, family and
colleagues as a leader who had
a lifetime of community ser-
vice.
But some of those close to
him also say he was a complex
man whose legacy may have
been clouded by a highly pub-
licized apology to his longtime
wife for an affair. He ultimately
left her for the other woman.
Brown, 49, died Oct 12 at his
Plant City home after a reoc-
currence of cancer, with his
newlywed wife and her sister
by his side.
Brown was first diagnosed
in February 2006 with a cho-
roidal melanoma, a very rare
form of eye cancer, and his left
eye and optic nerve were re-
moved. Cancer was again dis-
covered in April, and he was
told by his physicians that his
death was imminent, his fami-
ly said.
Brown enjoyed successes as
a community leader and com-
missioner. But he got his big-
gest wave of publicity in July
2007, when he publicly con-
fessed at a city commission
meeting to an extramarital af-
fair and apologized to his wife
of almost 27 years, Wendy.
He kissed his wife, who was
in the audience, and presented
her roses.
* Brown's apology in such a
public forum made newspa-
pers from Miami to San Fran-
cisco.
But the couple later di-
vorced, and Brown last month
married his high school sweet-
heart, the former Judy Miles
Traugott.
Brown, who didn't seek a
second three-year term on the
city commission, was recalled
by many as a leader who
should be remembered for his
life work.
He had a 23-year career with
Sunshine State Federal Savings
and Loan, where he was exec-
utive vice president and chief
financial officer. He held such
positions of prominence as
chairman of the Greater Plant
City Chamber of Commerce.
"I have known Robert for
many years through his work

at Sunshine State Federal Sav-
ings and Loan and through his
work with the chamber of
commerce," city Commission-
er Mike Sparkman said.
"As a commissioner, Robert
was very thorough. He re-
searched the- commission's
business and asked the impor-
tant financial questions,"
Sparkman said.
"He was superintelligent,
but he struggled to convey that
to people that he didn't know,"
he said.
Hal Brewer, a retired physi-
cian who knew Brown for
many years, called him an al-
truistic person.


BORN: April 8,1959, in Washington, D.C.
DIED: Oct. 12, 2008, in Plant City
OCCUPATION: Executive vice president and chief financial officer at

CIVIC: Secretary and treasurer of the South Florida Baptist Hospital
Foundation board, co-chairman of the Boys & Girls Club of Plant City,
former district vice chairman of the Boy Scouts, founding member of
the Children's Board of Hillsborough County, former chairman of the
Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce, and member and leader in
many other organizations
CHURCH: First Baptist Church of Plant City
SURVIVORS: Wife, Judy Miles Brown; father, Warren Robert Brown,

Daniel; sisters Linda Goddard, Judy Mullen and Nancy Babin; and two
grandchildren
FUNERAL HOME: Wells Memorial Funeral Home, Plant City, was in
charge of arrangements.


"For as long as I have known
Robert, he has constantly done
things to help other people,"
Brewer said. "He worked as a
volunteer to help people,
causes, charitable organiza-
tions and benefits. He never
appeared to do any of it for his
own gain, but I think from the
goodness of his own heart."
"Robert always had a smile
on his face," Brewer said.
"Evbn during his illness, he still
smiled and tried to make light
of his situation."
Jim McDaniel, the city's
community development di-
rector and fellow Kiwanis Club
member, recalled him for his
1K.


sense of humor and attention
to details.
"Robert was a fun-loving
person. But he was always very
serious about business,"
McDaniel said. "If the club was
going to submit anything to a
government body, Robert
would be the one to make sure
we dotted all the i's and
crossed all the t's before it
would be submitted."
Judy Brown said her hus-
band was an intelligent and
religious man who loved peo-
ple.
"He could make people
smile. He was a dedicated
public servant. He was much

loved and will be missed by
many. His desire was to meet
Jesus at the gates to heaven
and be told: 'Well done, my
good and faithful servant.'
"People might not under-
stand, but I believe it is
through God's will that all of
this has taken place."
Brown's son, Andy, 25, how-
ever, claimed his father turned
his back on his family in recent
years.
"He was one person outside
and a totally different person
inside the home," Brown said.
"He put on a public face. It was
like night and day."
Wendy Brown said she was
devastated by his loss but .said
he was "not the same man that
we have known and loved all
these years."
John Dicks, a former city
commissioner and mayor, said
despite what has transpired
during the past year, he feels
confident that Brown loved his
ex-wife and children.
"That family has gone
through some terrible times of
late," Dicks said. "But I am
certain Robert loved and was
proud of them all. He was
especially proud when his son
was honored as an Eagle Scout
some years ago."
Wendy and Robert Brown
were divorced Aug. 27. He re-
married Sept. 21 in the chapel -
at South Florida Baptist Hospi-
tal. The Rev. Ron Churchill,

No Matter What, I Will Remember Brown As A Good Man


PLANT CITY The late Rob-
ert Brown was once the pic-
ture of health, a 6-foot-2-inch
big teddy bear of a man with a
boyish 100-watt grin, quiz
show smarts and a penchant
for details.
He was a man who met
every professional challenge,
reached every professional
goal all before turning 50.
In most standards of profes-
sional achievement, he was
looked upon as a success, a
vice mayor, city commission-
er, executive vice president
and CFO of a local savings and
loan.
So when he was diagnosed
in 2006 with malignant coroi-
dal melanoma in his left eye,
family and friends believed
the man who was larger than
life could overcome the
"dreaded beast" that had
invaded his body.
Then one day in April, a
doctor told him something he
could not change or over-
come. The "dreaded beast"
was back. He was sick. He was
dying. What does he do now
that his life, always measured
by achievements and accom-
plishments, must be mea-
sured instead in months or


done exactly what others in

JERRY LOFSTROM

weeks?
Five mornings a week, every
week for years, Brown had
done exactly what others in
his adopted hometown do: He
got up and headed off to work.
Along the way, he often saw
neighbors en route to their
jobs. They smiled and waved
to each other, sharing famil-
iarity and a spirit of commu-
nity.
So it was no surprise when
Brown made the decision to
run for public office; he was
elected Group 4 city commis-
sioner and took office on June
12, 2005. In taking his seat for
the first time, he pounced into
his commissioner's chair with
the joy of a child on his first
trip to Disney World,
shouting, "I am here. I am
here. I can't believe I am here


in this chair!" It was refreshing
to see a grown man acting out
his dream of becoming a city
commissioner with such
childlike enthusiasm. .
"Robert Brown was always
well-prepared for every issue
brought before the commis-
sion," Commissioner Dan
Raulerson said.
Friends say Brown was a
"deeply committed" public
servant and was in politics
"for all-the right reasons."
"He really, deeply believed
in the concept of public ser-
vice and the concept and
value of community," Mayor
Rick Lott said. "He was detail-
oriented and would go deep
into an issue in doing the
public's business."
Yet, Brown's public persona
didn't always match his pri-
vate life.
Although political debates
occurred over such things as
property taxes and land use,
there was a debate going on
around town about Brown's
alleged indiscretion and in-
fidelity.
In a July 2007 city commis-
sion meeting, Brown went
public and confessed that he
had been unfaithful to his


wife, Wendy. He said he made
some bad choices when he
had an affair with another
woman.
"I chose the easy way. I
chose the fun way," he said. "I
chose poorly."
Then he asked the commu-
nity to pray for him.
With a dozen red roses, a
kiss and a public apology,
Robert Brown took a private
family matter and turned it
into a public spectacle.
Robert Brown, who di-
vorced Wendy this year, was
an enigma. How could a man
be so successful in his profes-
sional life, yet have such diffi-
culty in his private life?
Some family members say
Brown was arrogant and nar-
cissistic with an attitude of
always being right and above
the fray.
Choosing not to run for
re-election, he made what
would be his last public ap-
pearance as a commissioner
on May 27.
At that meeting, Lott paid
tribute to Brown: "I respect
you as a person, as a citizen,
as a man, and as a public
official. You will be sorely
missed."


I saw Robert Brown approx-
imately three weeks ago. I
flinched when I looked at him,
the ravaged, cancer-ridden
shell of a man he used to be.
When a man is dying and
knows it, there is clarity given
him that is denied most other
people. And if he has friends
who intertwine themselves in
his last days, some of what he
learns rubs off on them.
David Galloway was one of
those friends who visited
Brown frequently. Galloway
said that "even while bedrid-
den, his body ravaged by can-
cer, Robert Brown never com-
plained, I would go to visit
Robert thinking I would be an
encouragement to him, yet
each time I left him, he was
the one who uplifted me. He
died with grace and dignity."
Robert Brown will be re-
membered by many as the
-man who revealed the prob-
lems lurking underneath the
surface of success with a doz-
en red roses.
I will remember him as a
great commissioner and a
good man.

Honors One Of Its Own


A resolution cites

Brown for "his

dedicated service."
By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The late Robert
P. Brown was honored Oct. 13
by the Plant City Commission,
the five-member board on
which he served three years.
The commissioners adopted
a memorial resolution to pre-
sent to Brown's family.
The resolution outlines his
service as a city commissioner,
June 2005 to this past May,
including the last year as vice
mayor. During his term he also
was the city's representative
on the Hillsborough County
Council of Governments, serv-
ing as its chairman from Janu-


ary 2006 to 2008.
"Among his accomplish-
ments, Robert P. Brown served
as an officer of the Sunshine
State Federal Savings and Loan
Association, president of the
Plant City Kiwanis Club and
chairman of the board of the
Greater Plant City Chamber of
Commerce," states the resolu-
tion.
It cites "his dedicated ser-
vice to this city and to the Plant
City community" which he
"served with outstanding lead-
ership, vision and a spirit of
excellence."
The resolution signed by
commissioners goes on to
state: "Through his loyalty, pa-
triotism and service to this
community, he was a timeless
example of the highest stan-
dards of citizenship."


Before reading the resolu-
tion aloud, Mayor Rick Lot
called Brown "an astute busi-
nessman" who made Plant
City a priority. "He was a great
leader in our community."
Brown was also remem-
bered in the invocation by the
Rev. Jack Roberts of Eastside
Baptist Church at the start of
the meeting.
At Brown's final commis-
sion meeting May 27, col-
leagues presented him with a
plaque honoring him for his
service. Brown was in the audi-
ence June 9, when Mike Spark-
man took the oath of office for
Brown's commission seat.
Brown did not seek re-elec-
tion.

Robert gave of himself and
always had time for everyone.
He granted an "interview" to
my then-10-year-old daughter
Savannah that she needed to
do for a class project. (It had
to be a public figure.) He an-

without hesitation, including
ones about his eye patch. He
made Savannah feel very com-

What can I say about Robert
that hasn't already been said.
He was indeed a great person.
Every time I came to visit my
mother I could expect a big
hug from him when he noticed
me in her office. He had a
wonderful personality, and a
great sense of humor. I looked
forward to every company
picnic so I could see just how
excited he got about his vol-
leyball. Robert was an all-
around great guy; he will be
missed, but he is in a better
place now.

An estimated 250
people soak up the
fun at the annual
fundraiser.
By CHERYL KUCK
wkuck@tampa bay.rr.com
PLANT CITY The old
downtown train depot area
was filled with more than 100
energetic youngsters for the
second annual Habitat for
Humanity Kids Carnival.
Last month's fundraiser
was a "really good communi-
ty event, and you can be
certain there will be a third
annual carnival held next
year," said Rachael Layman,
Plant City Habitat for Hu-
manity director.
Habitat volunteers helped
with various forms of enter-
tainment, from giant slides to
a dunking for ducks game to
face painting.
"I like fishing," said 3-year-
old Joey Rainard, who stayed
by a fishpond game most of
the afternoon.
Games of skill included
throwing darts at paint-filled
balloons, which when hit,
covered volunteers in paint.
Many tried out their pitching
skills by throwing balls at a
target on a water-filled tank
where a precariously seated
Habitat volunteer was
doomed to get soaked.
"This is one way to cool
off," Franklin Magnet Middle
School volunteer Kayla Fields
said laughingly as she
dropped into the dunk tank.
Scoops the Clown and bal-
loon artist Douglass Capen
entertained crowds at Union
Station Welcome Center with
colorful balloon hats and oth-
er images Capen created us-
ing air and simple rubber
latex.
Jeffrey Ewalt, Lowry Park
Zoo's animal ambassador
and trainer, showed nature
lovers that even porcupines
can be cute when gingerly
handled with protective long-
sleeved gloves. He showed off
one of his "favorite critters," a
rare Central and South Amer-
ican prehensile-tailed porcu-
pine, telling his audience,
"You've got to be careful
around these guys; they'll
form into a ball and growl at

you."
Kathy Brogli, Hillsborough
County Habitat community
relations director, praised the
work of volunteers.
"Events like the carnival
help increase awareness of
what we are doing in Hillsbor-
ough County," she said.
An estimated 250 people in
all attended the carnival.
Habitat offers affordable
housing for families who
could not otherwise purchase
a home.
Prospective homeowners
are required to help build


their homes and the homes of
others in the program.

Habitat's Kids Carnival


A Slam-Dunk For Laughs


Irresponsible Consumers
It's really hard to fathom
how anyone could be on
board for lowering the drink-
ing age. Their argument is that
you can vote at 18, you can
join the military; you can ap-
ply for a loan, get married and
so on.
The one thing they pur-
posely leave out of this equa-
tion is that all require sober
judgment, not the consump-
tion of alcohol. The largest
vote in this request is the col-
lege students who claim that
lowering the drinking age "will
curtail binge drinking on col-
lege campuses."
Who is in control of these
underage drinkers in our col-
leges today? Where are the
administrators? Don't the
parents of these students bear
any of the responsibility for
their child's actions? Does
anyone think that enabling
teens and 20-year-olds to .
purchase all the booze they
want is going to "curtail" any-
thing; if anything, it will cause
it to explode out of control.
I find it ironic how so many
people, the government in-
cluded, have launched their
attacks against tobacco, sat-
urated fats, obesity and any-
thing else that they can find to
stick their noses into, while all
the while they don't make a
peep about alcohol, a drug
that kills countless people and
destroys the lives of those
affected by its addiction and
consumption. I have seen,
firsthand, its devastating con-
sequences on families and

individuals.
I personally don't agree
with allowing 18-year-olds
into atmospheres that incor-
porate alcohol consumption.
We need to be focused on
what's good in our society as a
whole, not the "dollar signs"
.or "what's cool."
If you need a sobering ac-
count of losing a cherished
loved one to someone who is
irresponsibly intoxicated, you
can ask Eddie and Jaretha
Fletcher of Plant City, and
members of their family, who
lost their son, Eddie Jr., one
night not long ago on State
Road 39 South when an al-
leged drunken driver struck
and killed him while he was
on his way home from the
store. He was just 30 years old
and left behind his wife, Brit-
tony; his 11-year-old son, Trey;
and his 5-year-old daughter,
Haley. I'm sure they could
give you an earful.
No, we absolutely do not
need millions more drunken
drivers behind the wheel and
teenagers acting irresponsibly.
We have more than enough of
that as it is.

ROBERT BROWN

senior pastor at First Baptist
Church of Plant City, per-
formed the ceremony.
"Robert was a longtime
member at our church," Chur-
chill said. "He and his family
were very active in charitable
functions at First Baptist. Rob-
ert was on many of our church
committees and volunteered
his time and skills wherever he
was needed.
"I had, of course, talked with
Robert quite often during the
past year," Churchill said.
"With his recent divorce and
my understanding of his be-
liefs, there was no reason for
me not to grant his wish for me
to officiate at his wedding.
"His death was tragic. To
have someone so young, in the
prime of his professional life,
to face death is so overwhelm-
ing."
Judy Brown said she dated
Robert throughout their high
school years at Sarasota High.
They have been living in a Park
Road condominium since Jan-


TBO^com, ywod*1


uary.
"Following the divorce, we
had planned an October wed-
ding," Judy Brown said. "But
his condition worsened, and
Robert wanted to move it up to
late September. When he was
hospitalized the last time and
his condition worsened, we
moved it up again."
The couple asked Churchill
to perform the ceremony in
the hospital chapel as soon as
Brown was discharged.
"The best way to humor
Robert was to do what he
wanted you to do," Judy
Brown said. "When Robert's
cancer returned he told me
that I didn't have to see this
through. But we were living
together and we were in love. I
had committed myself to him.
I told him that I felt God put
me in his life for a reason. And
that I would see him through
this, no matter what."

A Cougar win over
Sarasota Riverview

PLANT CITY Technically,
Durant can lose Friday and
still have a chance of making
the postseason.
But that option is not advis-
able.
Friday, the Cougars take on
Sarasota Riverview in a virtual
must-win situation. And it
won't be easy.
Sarasota Riverview has

underrated teams in the Tam-
pa Bay area. The Rams came
out of nowhere because they
started off 1-2, but further ex-
amination of those losses at
Kathleen and a 21-14 defeat
against still-unbeaten Venice
- show that they were actually
impressive outcomes.
So were victories for Saraso-
ta Riverview against Sarasota
Booker, the Tornadoes' only
defeat of the season, and
against Miami Pace.
The Rams have two out-
standing running backs, Andre
Booker and Jon Evans.

but lost 21-16 to Sarasota on
Oct. 10.
Against Sarasota, the Cou-
gars jumped to a 7-0 lead on a
38-yard touchdown run by An-
tonio Morris but did not score
again until the final minutes.
In between, the Cougars were
stifled by penalties, none more
costly than a block in the back
that overturned John Hicks'
interception return, which
would have given Durant a
17-14 lead.
Sarasota Riverview won its
first 6A-6 game, 35-12 against

Sarasota teams would lock up
the district's two playoff spots
if they win Friday.
A Durant victory would cre-
ate quite a few scenarios, in-
cluding the possibility of a
three-way tie for first place.
Should the Cougars lose,
they would need Riverview to
knock off Sarasota, then would
have to beat Riverview on Nov.
7 and have Sarasota Riverview
also defeat Sarasota.
All of that would be just to
put Durant into a three-way tie
for second. The district's run-
ner-up would be decided in an
on-field tiebreaker Nov. 10.
