Parade Committee Defies Resolution To Ban Beads, Candy


PLANT CITY - Remember as
children when we didn't get
our way, we would defy au-
thority and do whatever we
wanted to do. When children
act like children, generally
there' isn't much harm done
- and what damage does
occur usually happens to the
children alone.
However, when adults act
like children, oftentimes it's
not the people involved who
get hurt. Someone needs to
tell Fran Neilsen and the Plant
City Christmas Parade Com-
mittee of that reality.
In the November issue of
Focus Magazine, Neilsen,
co-chairperson of the Plant
City Clristmas parade, was
quoted as saving that she and
members of her parade com-
nttree will defy the city com-
missioners' resolution ban-
ning the distribution of candy
and beads at Friday's parade.
The committee will allow
distribution of goodies as long
as they are handed out and
not thrown.
"The city commission
passed a resolution to not
allow beads and cand\ for the
:parades," Neilsen was quoted
as saying. "But it is a resolu-
'tion, not an ordinance. We
have decided to allow the
distribution of Heads and

In an interview \with The
Tampa Tribune after the acci-

er and co-chairman of the
Christmas Parade Committee
said, "Although over the years
we've never had any serious'
accidents, each year there are
'close calls' when kids rush
Sonto the street-forbcandy."
On Dec. 7, 2007, luck ran

reached for candy to distrib-
ute from a trailer that served
as a church float.
The city responded imme-
diately.
On Dec. 10, City Manager
David Sollenberger called on
police Chief Bill McDaniel and
Neilsen to "review the tragic
event last Friday evening at
the Christmas parade so mea-
sures can be identified and
put ino effect to avoid recurr-


rence."
Fire Chief George Shiley
was called upon to evaluate
fire-rescue response in terms
of ability to reach the scene,
whether there were problems
and to provide recommenda-
tions to safeguard this from
happening again.
A select nine-member com-
mittee that included Neilsen,
McDaniel, representatives of
other local paitdes and other


leaders was formed to review
the police and fire chiefs'
findings and recommend a
course of action.
It seemed as though every-
thing was set in place for the
city to get to the bottom of
this tragic accident and to find
ways to make our parades
safer.
On Jan. 4, McDaniel sub-
mitted a comprehensive re-
port to city commissioners,
recommending changes in
parade rules, among them the
banning of the distribution of
candy and beads.
After nine months, six com-
mittee meetings and careful
consideration, the Parade
Safety Committee members
concluded their findings on
Sept. 22 and submitted their
report to city commissioners.
Their recommendation: "all
tossing and passing out of
candy, beads and any other
item" be banned from all
parades in Plant City.
There was no ambiguity in
the conclusions submitted by
our public safety officials.and
the Parade Safety Committee.
On Oct. 13, the city com-
mission voted in favor of a
resolution to ban the dis-
tribution of candy and beads

at all parades in Plant City.
Here's the burning ques-
tion: How can the committee
overseeing the Christmas
parade defy the ban and
allow distribution of candy
and beads at this year's pa-
rade? Just one year ago, Jor-
dan died doing just that.
According to City Attorney
Ken Buchman, "A resolution
is a statedpolicy by the city
commission that doesn't
have any enforcement pow-
ers like an ordinance would.
The Christmas parade com-
mittee can do whatever they
want under a resolution."
Oh, really! Then why did
the city draft a resolution if it
allowed the parade commit-
tee to do whatever its mem-
bers wanted?
In the annals of small-
town politics, the devil-may-
care attitude of the Christ-
mas Parade Committee to-
ward the city's resolution
will go down as a real doozy.
Why would the Christmas
Parade Committee, which


depends on the city for fund-
ing, permitting, police cover-
age, ambulance service, use
of public streets, sanitation
and trash pickup, and street
barricades, be so blatantly
defiant toward the city's
resolution?
Why would the committee
"bite the hand that feeds
them"?
Maybe they didn't.
Plant City is a closely knit
town where politicians have
been known to favor their
constituents over staff and
committee recommenda-
tions.
Don't you know that every
time a line is drawn on prin-
ciple, a deep-seated human
instinct emerges - the in-
stinct to compromise, partic-
ularly when it applies to
politicians.
One thing is.for sure.
Friday is the Christmas
parade, a Plant City tradi-
tion. Go snatch some candy,
grab some beads, have a,
great time.
Above all else, safeguard
your children and be safe.

is set to open Jan. 19, an Aldi
spokeswoman said.
The change is attributed to a
delay in construction of the
building. The building permit
the city issued in June shows
the project is valued at
$900,000.
Most recently the opening
was scheduled for Dec. 15.
Nationwide, 100 new Aldi
stores have opened this year.
The chain that says it offers
high-quality produce, fresh
meats and grocery items at up
to 50 percent less than com-
peting grocers entered the U.S.
market in 1976.

tire community will be staged
Dec. 14 at First United Meth-
odist Church of Plant City.

ma "Arise Shine! Your Light

stained-glass windows and
Christmas decorations.
Before each free perfor-
mance, complimentary break-
fasts will be served at 8:15 and

Bethlehem lamp maker, re-
counting his family's experi-
ences living around the corer
from the stable where Jesus
was born.
"More than 100 adults and
children are involved with the

a surgery for

bladder control.


Watch a surgical implant of an InterStim �neurostimulator for
bladder control live over the Internet. The procedure involves
inserting a neurostimulator through a small incision in the
upper buttock, and an electrode through a small incision. in
the lower back. The device emits mild electrical impulses to
stimulate the sacral nerve, which controls the bladder and
muscles related to urinary function. The electrical pulses
facilitate communication between the brain and the bladder to
help relieve symptoms of uncontrollable bladder.
The minimally invasive procedure is typically done on an
outpatient basis and takes a few hours. Stimulation settings are
adjusted during follow-up office visits in order to eliminate or
decrease symptoms.
Raviender Bukkapatnam, M.D., Tampa Bay Urology Institute,

chief of the division of urology, Tampa General Hospital, will
perform the procedure at Tampa General Hospital.

Spring Into Action


Christmas shop for high-quality discounted items and contribute to a good cause.


STribune photos by JIM REED
Volunteer Vicki Hawthorne puts Christmas items in a curio case to be put up for sale at the Simply Spring 11thrift store in Plant City.


Christmas decorations will be among the items for sale at a kickoff event
Tuesday. The sale is open to the public, and there's no admission charge.


By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - A thrift store with a
unique mission will kick off its holi-
day season Tuesday with a shopping
extravaganza.
Profits from Simply Spring II help
victims of domestic violence. The thrift
shop is one of three stores operated by
The Spring of Tampa Bay.
Simply Spring II, 1417 S. Collins St., is
located near Big Lots in the Plant City
Plaza shopping center. The store opened
Oct. 8 selling new and high-quality used,
clothes and furniture at heavily dis-
counted prices.
"The store has been going great guns
since we opened," said Kat Alley, The
Spring's retail operations manager.
Tuesday's event from 6 to 9 p.m. will


include refreshments, such as wine,, and
appetizers and Christmas items for sale,
along with the regular merchandise. The
extravaganza is open to the public, and
there's no admission charge.
Members of East Hillsborough Friends
of The Spring, such as Hal and Lynn
Brewer, Vicki Hawthorne, Linda Lawson
and her grandson, Blake Stafford, spent a
recent afternoon decorating the store for
Christmas.
"You could consider that the thrift
store's grand opening," said Hawthorne,
president of the East Hillsborough orga-
nization. "We have loaded the store with
high-quality clothes and furniture that is
priced unbelievably low."
The normal operating schedule for the
shop is Wednesday through Sunday
from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

















































Volunteer Hal Brewer, who helped set up Simply Spring II, sorts
through items for sale at the thrift store in Plant City.


Volunteer Blake Stafford, 11, puts stickers on the store windows. The
store sells all children's clothing at $1.99 per item.


As part of the normal pricing, the
store sells all children's clothes at $1.99
per item; T-shirts are 99 cents; jeans,
regardless of brand name or size are
$3.99.
"The quality and variety.is extraordi-
nary," Hawthorne said.
"It took a lot of work to get the store
ready to open," Alley said. "East Hills-
borough Friends of The Spring and
other individuals who live in Plant City
were instrumental in getting this pro-
ject off the ground."
Hal Brewer, a retired physician, has
been supporting the effort to get the
thrift store operational.
"Once we found this location, the
work began in earnest to get it ready as
a retail store," Brewer said.

Dean were instrumental in the tech-

The land was left
vacant by a 2005
arson fire that de-
stroyed almost a
block in historic

resell the property to
a developer.


City To Buy Parking Lot Plot


The nearly
half-acre parcel
will cost $475,000.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - The city has
agreed to spend $475,000 to
buy nearly a half-acre that was
left vacant by a 2005 arson fire
that destroyed almost a block
in historic downtown.
The city hopes to close by
the end of the year on the deal
for the property at the north-
east corner of Collins Street
and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Boulevard, Assistant City Man-
ager Greg Horwedel said.
The land is owned by Curtis
Devane, who owns a restau-
rant across Collins Street. He
has used the property as a
parking lot since buying it.
Devane ,will donate $50,000
back to the city to use for
landscaping the property, city


Commissioner Mike Spark-
man said. The landscaping,
which could include planters
and vines on trellises, would
help screen the backsides of
buildings exposed when the
fire destroyed several build-
ings fronting Collins.
The city is hiring historic
preservation consultant Ste-
phanie Ferrell for about
$10,000 to develop designs for
the property, which will re-
main a parking lot for now,'
Sparkman said. '
Ultimately the city wants to
sell the property to a developer
when the real estate market
improves, Horwedel said. The
city envisions the new owner
would build a project with a
mixture of residential and
commercial uses, he said.
Sparkman has complained
the property has been an eye-
sore since the fire, a conten-
tion Devane and his wife,


Tammy, have denied. The De-
vanes have said they vastly
improved the property since
acquiring it.
Hillsborough County prop-
erty records show David Haw-
thorne sold .2 of an acre to the
Devanes in November 2007 for
$125,000. They bought an ad-
jacent parcel about the same
size from Dennis Spurlock for
$165,000 in February. Both
properties had been vacant
since the February 2005 fire.
A local ieal estate company
told the city the property was
worth $290,000 to $541,000,
according to city records.
The city will use Community
Redevelopment Agency mon-
ey to make the purchase, Hor-
wedel said. The money is ear-
marked for use for redevel-
opment, he said.

Dentist Joyce Thomas holds down the fort at James R. Hoover's
40-year practice while.he is being treated for cancer.


New Dentist Joins


Hoover Practice

The practice founder steps down
while receiving cancer treatments.


By CHERYL KUCK
wkuck@tampa bay.rr.com
PLANT CITY -. For 40 years,
dentist James R. Hoover has
attracted a loyal base of pa-
tients to his practice.
Last year, though, he was
diagnosed with cancer. Be-
cause of his ongoing treat-
ments, he has been unable to
see his patients.
So he recently hired dentist
Joyce Thomas, who moved'to
the Tampa area from New
Jersey.
Hoover met her through her
husband, physician Jayson Ka-
rakunnel, a new associate at
Hematology & Oncology Con-
sultants of Tampa Bay in Bran-
don, where Hoover is receiving
his cancer treatments. Thom-
as, a mother of two, joined the
practice in mid-September.
Thomas said she is a "proud
first-generation American
whose family came from Goa,
India. I have been a doctor of
dental surgery for about 10
years and had been in a dream


job up North I was reluctant to
leave. I am amazed that I have
been able to find another one."
Thomas' name is now on
the building at 2309 W. Reyn-
olds St., -and the practice is
accepting new patients.
"I will never forget the day I
started work here. Dr. Hoover
looked into my eyes and said,
'Joyce, never forget that I trust
you.' That means so much to
me. I'm looking forward to the
next 40 years of the Hoover
and Thomas dental practice."
One thing hasn't changed at
Hoover's office: His staff re-
mains the same, including hy-
gienists Karen Godfrey and
Velda Hall, who have been
working with him for 35 years;
Dot. Andreu, who has been
handling the office and front
desk for 20 years; and Sandy
Warner, who has been at the
reception desk for three years.
Hoover hopes to return to
seeing patients as his cancer
treatments progress.

By DEREK MAUL
S r Tibune correspondent
PLANT CITY - The Strawberry
Stitchers club was organized in
1990 to help people in need.
Activities have ranged from
feeding the hungry to assisting
families around the holidays to
sewing teddy bears for children
in crisis.
Susanne Coldwell joined in
-2006, looking for friends after
her move from Jacksonville.
Carol Weathersbee stumbled
across the group researching
community service for her
daughter; they joined together
this past summer. -
The Plant City Courier &
Tribune talked with Weathers-
bee and Coldwell about the
group's history, challenges,
mission and future .
Q. What do Strawberry Stitch-
ers do?
A. We make teddy bears for
children. Our focus is the emer-
gency room at South Florida
Baptist Hospital. The bears are
handmade, and they really make
an impact.
Q. Do you hear from recipi-
ents?
A. Yes. Member Jann Donley has
fa friend named Sara Valladares.
.Sara received one of the first
bears in the '90s, She told us,


"Having the bear made me feel
good inside and, gave me a
sense of comfort and security."
Sara's 12-year-old niece still has
her bear and displays it on her
bed.
Q. How are they received?


A. When we come in with a bag
of bears, they're like. "The bears
are here!" Nurses, security ,
guards, the children - everyone
likes it.
Q. Was the club more active in
the past?


A. Originally, over 20 women
were active. They saw a need
for children and provided bears
to the police and fire depart-
ments, hospitals and Indian
reservations. They also fed the
poor and elderly and took care
of people during holiday times.


AT A GLANCE

WHAT: The Strawberry Stitch-
ers
WHEN: The club meets 7 p.m.
Thursday and is looking for a
permanent location.
INFORMATION: (813) 990-9155



Q. Is the need less today?
A. Absolutely not! But there was
a time when more women were
involved in groups like this. Now
we have to be more efficient
and make sure people don't
waste their valuable time. We
know people don't have all day
anymore to sit around and talk.
Most everyone is working out-
side the home.
Q. Where do you meet?
A. We're homeless! We met in
the [Plant City] Winter Visitors
Center for 15 years, but now *
they only allow revenue-produc-
ing groups. It was a budget
thing; we can't pay $150 every
Thursday night.
Q. How important is Straw-
berry Stitchers?

STITCHERS CLUB


Continued From Page 28

A. We're providing emotional
support .to children who are
going through a struggle.
When children get a bear in a
crisis mode, it calms the situa-
tion down. It's something to
hug, something to hold.

Q. Do you have fun?
A. It's our Thursday night ther-
apy! And our resident comedi-
an keeps us all in stitches in
more ways than one. We have
a 10th-grade girl in the group;
she said, "Those ladies are
funny; I guess you get funnier
as you get older."
Q. How many women partici-
pate?
A. Eight at most on a meeting
night, although we have mem-
bers who can't come out at
night. It's kind of like a pro-
duction line. Some embroider,
some sew, some cut fabric,
some stuff the bears.
Q. How can the community
help?
A. We don't need money, but.
we do need a place to meet.
We're tidy, we clean up after
ourselves, and we don't eat
because our hands are too
busy. We're well-stocked with
supplies, but we need people
to participate.
Q. Who is involved?
A. People from many walks of
life. Businesswoman, a lazzer-
cise instructor. a substitute


teacher, a high school student,
women's and garden club
members, a pest control pro-
fessional, and longtime Plant
City residents. We've also had
some mother-daughter com-
binations over the years.

Q. Is volunteering still impor-
tant?
A With budget cuts and such, I
think volunteers are more im-
portant than ever. Volunteers
are picking up the slack. We
have this sense of pride that
we're helping kids in crisis.
The children always choose
these bears - we're told -
.because they have such a pret-
ty smile.
Q. Do you recycle bears?
A. No. We bag them so chil-
dren and parents know their
bear is brand new.

Q. How many do you make?
A. Not as many as we'd like.
We try to give maybe 30 a
month.

Q. Are you optimistic?
A. There is always hope for a
new day, new opportunity.
God is good, and Plant City is a
wonderful place to be. What a
neat community; it's like
something Disney would
build, just a beautiful.setting.
Q. In closing?
A. We need people, and we
need a place. If we had people,
we'd figure out how to get ft
done. It's no good having a
place if we don't have people.

OF PARTICULAR NOTES
Fewer musical notes are more
eloquently haunting than taps, the
military bugle call that is sounded
over soldiers' graves. This melody
began as a replacement for the more
formal Extinguish Lights (Tattoo)
that preceded it. Adapted by the
Union Army's Brigadier General
_Daniel Butterfield in 1862, the call
became known as "taps" because: it
was often tapped out on a drum
when a bugle was not available.
The first use of taps at a funeral
is said to have occurred when
Captain John C. Tidball of Battery
A, 2nd Artillery, ordered it played
for the burial of a cannoneer killed
in action. The close proximity of
the enemy deemed it unsafe to fire
the customary three volleys over
the grave.

Upon a family request, the law
requires that every eligible veteran
receive a military funeral honors
ceremony to include folding and
presenting the United States burial
flag and the playing of Taps, The
law defines a military funeral honors
detail as consisting of two or more
uniformed military persons with at
least one a member of the veteran's
parent service of the Armed Forces.

he inspiration for Joyce
Bugaiski's artwork comes
from her Cherokee heri-.
tage.
Bugaiski is a tribal member
of the Southeastern Cherokee
Council and the Black Wolf
Warrior Society, whose mem-
bers know her by her tribal
name, Spirit Wind.
The award-winning Lake-
land artist is a member of-The
Brandon League of Fine Arts,
Arts on the Park, the Lakeland
Art Guild, the East Hillsbor-
ough Art Guild and the Bar-
tow Art Guild. She has been
selected as a featured artist
for the Cherokee Heritage
Calendar for the past three
years.
:The piece chosen for the
2009 calendar is a striking
portrayal of mother and child
titled "Tsa La Gi Madonna,"
which means "Cherokee Ma-
donna" in the artist's native
language.
She began her career with
the encouragement of fellow
Brandon League artist Luis
Zamora, who frequently dis-
plays work with her in shows.
Together they present spiritu-
al and metaphysical view-
points in bold and brilliant
color.
Zamora handed Bugaiski

suggested she take some clas-

pencil demonstration by
Tampa artist Mark Menendez,,
so she decided to take her
first classes with him in 2000
after she suffered a stroke.
"I believed that using my
fingers and my concentration
would be good therapy, and it
was. His teaching changed
my life," she said.
Her first competition was
the 2001 Florida Strawberry
Festival amateur artist con-
test. She entered a drawing
titled "In Memory Of," ded-.
icated to her deceased son,
Wayne Bugaiski, whose tribal
name was Wings on Feet.
"The drawing was for my
son's memory and became a
healing drawing for me," she
said.

tray any subject matter, but

Lifestyle &
Longevity
A lifestyle of not smoking, getting at
least 30 minutes a day of moderate
exercise, eating five servings of fruits
and vegetables a day and drinking
alcohol in moderation may increase
life span.-A study found that those who
had all four factors lived an average
of 14 years longer than those who
didn't. Also, people who did none
of the above were four times more
likely to die by the end of the eleven
year study. Not smoking offered the
greatest benefit for survival. Note: If
you are taking medication, consult
your doctor or pharmacist before
consuming alcohol.

The house, which was built .,

neighboring plumbago and
the butterfly-attracting cassia
plants. The backdrop to these
is Larry Langford's wooden
grape arbor bearing purple-
colored muscatel grapes.
At the front and to the side
of the property, there is a very
healthy orange tree, one of the
largest of the plantings on the


property. Liana Langford said
that they have taken care not
to let things grow very big. This
has created a pleasing propor-
tion for each plant in relation
to its surroundings and the
size of the .yard. Specimen.
trees of many kinds are spaced
out around the yard and add
interest everywhere.
Among the plantings in the
side yard are a poinciana tree,
several crape myrtles, a Japa-
nese plum tree, a tabebuia
tree, an avocado tree and a
mimosa tree ringed with lilies.
Looking to the far back of
the yard is a gazebo. It is a very
inviting and serene spot; but
when you start really looking
at it, there is a lot going on. The
tin roof is supported by three
vertical poles at each of the
four comers of its wooden
deck. It is enclosed by the
"walls" of flowers and vines
that grow around and on it.
There are bougainvillea on two
decorative trellises on one side
and trumpet vine and wisteria
on other sides.
A second horizontal rail is
there for the wisteria to travel
around the whole structure,
and there are hanging plants at
various levels, too. There are
ground plants such as ixoras
and dwarf Rex begonias, vanil-
la, rabbit hat and croton. In
pots on the ground and in
hanging planters are the suc-
culent night blooming cereus.
Potted caladium, sedum and
impatiens can be found here
along with a nearby tibouchi-
na tree.

See GARDEN AWARD, Page 35 N


The Langfords have landscaped their yard with charm and beauty, but there were
only three plants there when they moved in 11 years ago.

Durant records its
best-ever
individual finish.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT. CITY - Although it
wasn't quite the run he had in
mind, John Mitchell can settle
for eighth in the state.
The Durant High senior
gave the school its best-ever
finish for an individual at the
state meet, running the eighth-
place time of 15 minutes and
59 seconds across the three-
mile course at Dade City's Lit-
tle Everglades Ranch.
"I was hoping to startoff in
the top 10 and then try to
sprint my way into the top five,
but it didn't quite work out
that way," said Mitchell, who
nonetheless was quite pleased
with how his day turned out.
Namely, upon finishing as
the best Hillsborough County
runner, Mitchell was pretty,
Much instantly invited to com-
pete in a state All-Star event
Saturday at Florida State Uni-
versity.
College coaches will be at
that meet and were also at the
Foot Locker regional meet that
Mitchell was to take part in last,
weekend at Charlotte, N.C.
The exposure to the coaches is
good for Mitchell, who is still
trying to decide where he will

continue his running career.
Perhaps Mitchell will be able
to solve the stomach cramping
that has hindered him much of
the season, including at the 4A
meet in Dade City.
"I'm dieting right; I eat
enough potassium," he said.
"But I cramp up every race.
The good news is my legs have
felt great."
Mitchell said his stomach
started to bother him at the
two-mile mark -at the state
meet.
"It's like, 'Oh goodness, here
we go again,"' he said.
Still Mitchell's problems
were nothing compared with
his main county rival. Sickles'
Derek Wehunt, who was ex-
pected to finish in the top 10,
had his whole body cramp up,
and he ended up in 100th
place. Wehunt will join Mitch-
ell in representing Hillsbor-
ough County at this;ieekend's
race in Tallahassee.
Mitchell's finishes in the last
three state cross country races
have gone with a coincidental
math pattern: He was 32nd as
a sophomore, then 16th as a
junior before finishing eighth.
Now Mitchell turns his at-
tention to playing guard for
the Cougar basketball team
before finishing up his high
school career with track in the
spring.

All-star squad also
includes three
Durant players.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - Plant City
High's Duran Lowe, who is
verbally committed to Wake
Forest University, was the lone
Raider named to the First
Team when Western Confer-
ence all-star squads were an-
nounced last.week.
Lowe played anywhere on
the defensive formation where
needed and made the Federal
Division First Team as a defen-
sive back, the position he will
likely be groomed to play in
college.
The coaches of each of the
four divisions in the Western
Conference pick the all-con-
ference squads. The Federal
Division includes Plant City,
Durant and all of the eastern
Hillsborough County teams.
Playoff qualifiers Spoto and
Newsome had the most play-
ers honored.
Durant, which reached the
6A playoffs before falling 14-7
to Orlando's Dr. Phillips, had
three players get First Team
honors. Cole Gilliam, who is
mulling over several Division I
football -scholarship honors,


was named one of the top
tackles and Ryan Rice made
First Team running back
alongside East Bay's Chaz Bur-
rows and Newsome sopho-
more Conner Powers. On de-
fense, Durant senior Austin
DeVall was a First Team
choice.
. The First Team quarterback
was Andrew Burdick from Len-
nard HIgh.
Plant City had three make
the Second Team offense:
quarterback Clint Stearns,
wide receiver Cortez Hargrett
and center Eddie Rosenbaum.
Plant City's Denzel Drone was
a Second Team defensive se-
lection.
For Durant, Colton Bridges
and Ruben Garcia made the
Second Team defense, Conner
Bass was the kicker, and John
Hicks the kick returned.
Earlier the Western Confer-
ence top volleyball players
were voted on, with three Du-
rant players - Chelsea Morris,
Kelsey Horton and Lindi Oest
- on the First Team. Plant
City's Ali Boggs made Second
Team.
Durant reached the' state
tournament but fell to then-
undefeated Countryside in the
first round. Countryside went
oh torthe state semifinals be-
fore falling.

Here's Rundown


On Proposed


Realignments

The football playoff picture will change
dramatically if the new format is OK'd.


By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - Big changes
are afoot for the Florida state
football playoffs. Among the
effects of an upcoming district
realignment is the likely return
of Plant City and Durant as
district rivals, but that is just
the start of the intrigue for
those schools, and really for
everyone else around the state.
In a move unanimously ap-
proved by the Florida High
School Athletics Association
last week, the setup for football
districts and the playoff format
will drastically change. For the
four largest classifications,
starting with 6A and going-
down to 3A, the number of
districts will be cut in half,
resulting in much larger
groupings.
Along with that, the number
of playoff-bound teams from
each district doubles, going'
from two to four. The number
of playoff qualifying teams per
region, eight, remains the
same.
Considering a typical dis-
trict will now contain as many.
as nine teams, it will also make
for a season full of meaningful
contests.
"Every week now you're go-
ing to have something to play
for," Durant head coach Mike
Gottrian said.
For his team, the new dis-
tricts will likely mean the end
of a five-year stint where the
Cougars were in Class 6A.


Because its higher atten-
dance put the Cougars apart
from most Hillsborough Coun-
ty schools for football, Durant
has had to be grouped with
Sarasota and Sarasota River-
view. But according to tabula-
tions by Hillsborough County
Athletic Director Lanness Rob-
inson, Durant will likely go
down to the 5A level.
Durant and Plant City would
naturally be in the same dis-
trict for football. That won't be
official until Dec. 12, when the
association will release its pro-
posed new districts. Schools
will have three weeks to pro-
test.
Plant City and Durant can
count on being placed with
other area 5A schools includ-
ing the ones Plant City has
shared District 5A-7 with:
Newsome, East Bay, Bloom-
ingdale and Brandon. Other
potential new district foes
could include top Hillsbor-
ough County teams such as
Chamberlain, Gaither, Alonso
andWharton.
There is also a chance that
powerhouse Lakeland may be
in the Raiders' and Cougars'
district; however, with four
playoff spots available, that
news would not be quite as
daunting. A team could afford
to lose to a couple of strong
foes and yet still have third or
fourth place to shoot for.

2009 SEASON

Continued From Page 40

So for many teams, the
change, which will go into ef-
fectfor the 2009 season, means
new hope. Lakeland's district
is a great example, as the
Dreadnaughts' presence has
meant that between two very
strong teams, Kissimmee
Osceola and Lake Gibson, one
has had to be left out of the
playoff picture.
This year in 5A-11, there


were three teams ranked in the
top 10 but only two made the
playoffs, with Manatee going
8-2 but not making the post-
season.
For others, such as Jefferson
High, the road actually .be-
comes more difficult. With on-
ly four teams in its district
(4A-11), the Dragons have had
a cakewalk to the postseason,
just needing to beat perennial
losing teams Leto and Blake to
get in.
SDurant was also in a four-
team district, but 6A-6 has
been pretty even during the
Cougars' stay.


Plant City and Durant can count on being placed
with other area 5A schools including the ones
Plant City has shared District 5A-7 with: New-
some, East Bay, Bloomingdale and Brandon.
Other potential new district foes could include top
Hillsborough County teams such as Chamberlain,
Gaither, Alonso and Wharton.


Either way, no longer will a
team have as few as three
district games: the ones that
decide their playoff fate. Du-
rant needed just one victory
(and then to prevail in a three-


way tiebreaker) to get into the
6A postseason this year.
One big plus is that no lon-
ger will a school be able to
reach the playoffs with a below
.500 record. For example, had


Riverview defeated Durant this
year, the Sharks would have
made the playoffs by going 2-1
in district play, but their over-
all record would have been
2-8.
But Durant got in, and the
Cougars fell 14-7 to a very
strong Orlando Dr. Phillips
team Nov. 21 to see their sea-
son end with a 6-5 record.
"It was our first winning
season in four years," Gottman
said. "Dr. Phillips had a whole
lot of skill, and their defense
was tall and physical. We
played 'em tough, but we just
couldn't move the ball."
