ough County School District's
elementary reading coaches.
Deana Moorman, reading
coach at Cork Elementary
School in Plant-City, thought
of the hospital when the read-

Plant City leaders
reflect on a day
of terror.
ByGFORGE Wkl-LKENS
gwilkens@Lampairib.con
PLANT CITY - On Dec. 5.
Plant City was shut down by a
massive manhunt for a heavily
armed suspected killer.
Three nights later, the col-
lective experience and pain
was recognized at the start of
the Plant City Commission
meeting.
The meeting began with a
prayer and comments by May-
or Rick Lott about the "terror
that struck our city. This type
of terror is not supposed to
happen to our community; not
Plant City. But it did."
Fransisco Rangel, wanted in
the Dec. 4 shooting death of
36-year-old Michael James
Longoria, was spotted the next
morning by Hillsborough
County sheriff's detectives
driving through downtown
Plant City.
When they tried to stop him,
he opened fire with a high-
powered assault rifle, author-
ities said.
No officers were hit, but
Candelario Lagunes, 58, a pas-
senger in a passing car, was
shot in the head and died.
A shootout ensued, followed
by hours of 'house-to-house
searches for Rangel, forcing
lockdowns at a dozen schools
and cancellation of the 25th
annual Plant City Christmas
Parade that was to have started
at 6 p.m.
Before the commission
Monday night, the Rev. Carlos
J. Rojas, assistant to the pastor
at St. Clement Catholic
Church, spoke of the difficul-
ties the community suffered at
the hands of a gunman. "He
tested us with spirits that are
not of the season."
Lagunes' son, Henry, at-
tended the meeting. Asked to
address the commission, he
spoke of how he and his father
had planned to launch a small
business, a mobile kitchen.


Assistant City Manager Greg
Horwedel will help the family
proceed with that venture.
"He's going to help you with
.that red tape so you can get
Sthat-permit," Lott told La-
gunes.
"Plant City is a good place to
live," replied Lagunes, who
said many in the community
visited the family's home to
express sympathy. Visitors in-
clude Lott and Police Chief Bill
McDaniel.
Lagunes and his father, 58,
were in their car on the morn-
ing of Dec. 5, en route to the
ATM at Publix, when the
shooting began.. Henry La-
gunes told his father shots
were being fired and, mo-
ments later, the car's back
window popped and a bullet
hit his father, he recalled in an
interview.
Lagunes turned his car
around and started to drive
toward Rangel, but authorities
waved at him to stop, and he
realized that crashing into
Rangel might do his father
additional harm. Candelario
Lagunes was rushed to Lake-
land Regional Medical Center,
where he died.
At Monday's meeting, the
mayor thanked authorities.
"On behalf of the city commis-
sion I want to thank our police
department and the Hillsbor-
ough County sheriff, plus
many other law enforcement
agencies that joined together
to capture this fugitive. Your
knowledge, skill and dedica-
tion to provide public safety
During the manhunt was most
impressive," Lott said.
In addition to local police
and sheriffs officers, agencies
in the manhunt included the
Florida Highway Patrol, Flori-
da Department of Law En-
forcement, Tampa Police De-
partment, CSX railroad police,
U.S. Immigration and Cus-
toms Enforcement and the
U.S. Marshals Service.

Statue Design OKd For Park


Sarasota artist's
eagle design is a
tribute to veterans.
By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - The artist and
his patriotic design favored by
the committee spearheading
Veterans Memorial Park have
received the Plant City Com-
mission's blessing.
At their Dec. 8 meeting,
commissioners unanimously
adopted a resolution approv-
ing the "Freedom Rising" de-
sign by Duane Scott of Saraso-
ta.
Scott was one of a dozen
artists who responded to the
committee's invitation for pro-
posals, and one of seven
whose design reached the.
semifinal selection stage. Ap-
propriately, the committee se-
lected Scott's design at their
meeting on Veterans Day, Nov.
11.
"Our art will be an original,"
Jennifer Closshey, chairwom-
an of the Plant City Armed
Forces Memorial Foundation,


said during her presentation to
commissioners.
The design, which is intend-
ed to honor veterans of all
branches of the military, fea-
tures an 8-foot-tall bronze
bald eagle with outstretched
wings. The work will sit atop a
6-foot-high granite base,
. Closshey explained. The ea-
gle's talons clutch a partially
unfurledAmerican flag.
The statue is the centerpiece
of a revamping of Courier
Field, a city park at Wheeler
and Herring streets, just. north
of Bruton Memorial Library.
The project ji to include a
gazebo, gardens, trees, 8-foot-
wide sidewalks with brick ac-
cents and'a gathering area for
350 people.
The memorial can be com-
pleted within six months' of
signing the contract with the
artist, Closshey said. The com-
mittee hopes to dedicate the
memorial on Veterans Day
2009.
Closshey said Scott will be-
gin his work in clay. Commit-
tee members will review his
progress and have the oppor-

Christmas Parade

To March On

Event planners reschedule it for Friday
after a manhunt halted festivities.


By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - The Plant
City Christmas Parade, can-
celed hours before its Dec. 5
start, will be rescheduled for
Friday, volunteer organizers
decided last week.
The go-ahead for the 6
p.m. procession came after a
parade committee meeting
Dec. 10.
After discussing the feasi-
bility of putting on a smaller
but viable parade, the com-
mittee agreed to take all steps
necessary to proceed with
the 25th annual event.
"The insurance carrier has
agreed to provide us with
coverage for Dec.19," said
Fran Neilsen, co-chair of the
committee.
Committee members said
parade participants and sup-
port personnel would be
contacted about the new


date, but expressed confi-
dence that details can be
worked out.
City Manager David Sol-
lenberger said the city will
support the parade commit-
tee in every way possible.
* "We will have to look at the
details with the committee,"
Sollenberger said. "A lot of
people were disappointed
when it was announced the
parade was canceled. This
may be a last-minute Christ-
mas present to a lot of people
who were looking forward to
it."
The committee was sched-
uled to meet again Friday to
update progress and finalize
plans. i
The parade cancellation
announcement. by Sollen-
berger came at 3 p.m. Dec. 5

PLANT CITY - It's a parent's
worst nightmare: a child suf-
fering a seemingly innocuous
sinus infection is ultimately
diagnosed with a cancer so
rare, doctors worldwide report
300 or fewer new cases annu-
ally.
For Plant City teen Emily
Evans and her parents, howev-

rhabdomyosarcoma an appar-
ent success, it created a greater

friends, neighbors, colleagues,
former classmates and strang-
ers.
"We've been able to count
our blessings daily," said Emi-
ly's father, Jerry Evans. "It's
been an amazing journey."
That journey has gone full
circle, the family of four again
reunited at home, ending
nearly a year of splitting time
between Plant City and New
York's well-known Memorial
Sloan-Ketter-
ing Cancer "You never
Center.
Rhabdo- going to be
myosarcoma it, but it
is a cancerous
tumor origi- everybody
nating in the by ca
soft tissues.
In Emily's CINDY
case, a fast- Emily Eva
growing tu-
mor ballooned in her sinus
cavity and attached itself to
her soft palate.
The tumor was removed
during surgery at Lakeland Re-
gional Medical Center three
weeks before Emily, 16, began
treatment at Sloan-Kettering,
the day after Christmas in
2007.
After completing the last of a
dozen three-week chemother-
apy cycles there, late last
month she returned to Plant
City and a welcome-home par-
ty with 150 guests.
A DVD produced by Jerry
that premiered at the party
documents the happy mo-
ments during Emily's ordeal.
The 10-minute slide show set
to music also features dozens
of photographs of friends and
family hoisting signs encour-
aging Emily to get well and
hurry home.
Support for Emily came in


more substantial ways, too.
Plant City residents
launched fundraisers, spawn-
ing donations from those who
know the Plant City High stu-
dent and many who did not.
Nia Ramo, co-owner of Nia
Bella's boutique, made her
downtown business a drop-off
point for donations, and ear-
marked 10 percent of each
purchase for the "Emily Fund."
A woman who lost her
daughter to
hink you're cancer in
2006 came
touched by forward to of-
?ems like fer emotional
support to
is touched the Evans
7cer. family, as did
a Plant City
EVANS girl who bat-
ik mother tied lympho-
ma in recent
years.
Jerry's Plant City High Class
of '75, which was planning a
mass birthday party for former
classmates turning 50, made
the event a fundraiser for Emi-
ly, netting $3,000.
The employers of Jerry and
his wife, Cindy, allowed each
to work remotely so one par-
ent could always remain with
Emily in New York, the other in
Plant City with older daughter
Caity.
Cindy's employer provided
a furnished corporate apart-
ment six blocks from the can-
cer center, without charge, for
nearly a year.
Cindy's New York City-area
relatives regularly stocked the
apartment refrigerator and
pantry and delivered prepared
meals.

PLANT CITY - A five-story,
68-unit apartment com-
plex to provide affordable
housing for the elderly is under
construction near the entrance
to St. Clement Catholic
. \ Church, 1104 N. Alexander St.
, . ' Each San Clemente Villas
, .apartment of approximately
- ' 530 square feet will have one
Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen
S' 'and living room, with each
S- ' : . unit served by an individual
- ' ' air-conditioning system.
S- _ "The project is ahead of
S schedule and going very well,"
said Gerard Donnelly of Sierra
S Construction, Tampa, the pro-
1C- ject superintendent. "We came
' ',- out of the ground on Aug. 8
and expect to turn the job over
1F. _ to the owners on Sept. 9."
- .The senior housing complex
will be operated and main-
S'tained by Catholic Charities
USA, a social services organi-
zation. U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment grants totaling about
$9.5 million obtained by the
Catholic Diocese of St. Peters-
burg and Catholic Charities
will finance the project. The
actual construction cost is esti-
mated at $6.8 million.
The apartments will be
leased to individuals who meet
specific criteria.
"The tenants have to be at
least 62 years old and have an
annual income that is less than
$19,000," said project manager
Jim Conlin. "San Clemente is
the third such complex we
have built in the Tampa Bay
area. The complex is designed
. to be tenant friendly, fully ADA
approved and designed as a
full-service community. They
have proven to be very pop-
ular."

near the main entrance and
elevator. There is also an ad-
joining library and reading
room. There will be a common
laundry area on each floor.
Twelve of the 68 units are
designed to accommodate the
handicapped, including two
for blind or deaf tenants.
During a power outage, a
generator connected to the
building's electrical service
will provide power for an ele-
vator, hallway lighting and, on
the ground floor, air condi-
tioning and electrical outlets in
the multipurpose room and
library.
The building backs up to
Cronin Hall, the St. Clement
social and meeting hall. The
entrance and main parking lot
face south, away from the
church campus. The entrance
overlooks a large wooded wet-
lands area to the south, east of
Alexander Street.
The Rev. Tom Anastasia,
pastor of St. Clement, formally
blessed the ongoing project
Nov. 21, asking that workers be
protected from injury during
construction.

housing," Conlin said. "The
entire building has been de-
signed with safety and conve-
nience of the tenants built in.
The construction is top-notch
and has been federally and
locally approved in all phases."
The city originally approved
zoning of about 30 acres ad-
jacent to St. Clement to ac-
commodate the villas. Much of
that property is wetlands and
considered. undevelopablee.
The useable area, accommo-
dating the structure, parking
and peripheral property takes


up about 5 acres.
Original plans called for
three stories, but the design
was altered to reduce the
building's footprint, officials
said.
Conlin said Sierra Construc-
tion has built other subsidized
housing complexes in Hills-
borough County, including St.
Lawrence, off Himes Avenue
in Tampa, and San Lorenzo
Terrace, off North MacDill Av-

- for everything," Jerry
said.
Most important, Emily's
parents cite their daughter's
upbeat attitude throughout
the ordeal, from diagnosis
to repeated chemotherapy,
while being far from home.
"She's an incredible kid
with incredible spirit," her
mother said.
"The journey's not over
yet," however, and doctors
wait five years before they
use the term "cured," Cindy
Evans said. Emily must re-
ceive monthly chest X-rays
in Tampa and, every three
months, return to Sloan-
Kettering for several days to
undergo scans.
"You never think you're
going to be touched by it,
but it seems like everybody
is touched by cancer," Cin-
dy added.
The ordeal was made
more bearable through the
support of so many, "every-
body, from family and
friends from the South and
family up North, too," said
Cindy. "People were with us
every step of way and we
felt their prayers and we felt
their love."

9:30 a.m. deadly shootout
that shut down Plant City
streets and forced lock-
downs at local schools.
The search ended around

fatally, was apprehended as
he walked between two va-

PLANT CITY UPDATE


City Leaders Have
Ties That Bind
There was colorful support
for the Florida Gators at the
Dec. 8 Plant City Commission
meeting.
To mark the University of
Florida's Dec. 6 victory over
top-ranked Alabama to win
the SEC championship game
in Atlanta, commissioners and
other city officials donned
neckties hearing the Gators'
orange-and-blue colors.
City Attorney Ken Buchman
wore his and brought extras to
accommodate those who for-
got or lacked the initiative to
back the Gators. "'
Commissioner Dan Rauler--
son, a Florida State; Universitr
grad wearing a more conserva-
tive print tie, declined Gator
neckwear but graciously ac-
knowledged the 31-20 victory.
"I must say, 'Go Gators,"' he
Said as the hourlong meeting
moved toward adjournment.
"Oh, it hurts, but I'm going to
be a good cohort and wish the
Gators well."
Taking advantage of the city
Attorney's sharing mood,
Commissioner Mike Spark-
,man donned a Gator tie after
:removing his seasonal neck-


wear paying tribute to Santa.
Commissioner Mary Yvette
Thomas Mathis received a
loaner, too, opting for a more
conservative orange-and-blue
striped tie she wrapped
around her neck, scarf-style.
Mayor Rick Lott, wearing a
Gator tie, explained the tradi-
tion: "When the Gators win the
SEC title, all Gators wear Gator
ties."
George Wilkens
Demolition Set
At Weigh Stations
The day. are numbered for
truck weigh stations on In-
terstate 4 west of Thonoto-
sassa Road in the Plant City
area.,
High-tech Weigh stations are
nearing completion on 1-4 be-
tween Mango and Mclntosh
roads. Shortly after those open
in early January, the ones in
Plant City will be demolished.
There" will be about three
months of testing of the new
,stations, project spokesman
John McShaffrey said.
The stations under con-
struction by John Carlo Inc.
are opening substantially
ahead of the projected 2010
completion date for the
$36 million project, he said.


There have-been weigh sta-
tions in the Plant City area
since the 1960s, but they have
static scales, where truckers
must stop while their rigs are
weighed before they merge
back into traffic.
The state decided to replace
them with modem scales that
can weigh trucks while they
are in motion. The trucks will
be travel through the new sta-
tions about 45 mph and will

The new stations will have a

Attention, Teachers
And Parents
Betty Kay Ruel, reading
coach at Plant City High
School, is getting the word out
about FCAT preparations.
"Beginning Jan. 6, Plant City
High will offer after-school tu-


touring for all students in prep-
aration for the FCAT," Ruel
said. "We are trying to reach
parents to let them know of
this free service."
Ruel is asking teachers and
parents of students that could
benefit from after-school tu-
toring to have those students
register as soon as possible.
"Please begin recruiting stu-
dents immediately," Ruel said.
"This is an important opportu-
nity for every student. The
Level 1 and Level 2 readers,
and to all FCAT re-testers will
greatly benefit by attending."
"We want to be an 'A'
school," Ruel said. "Reaching
these, students will 'help us
reach our goal."
Ruel said transportation is-
sues can be worked out by
calling her at (813) 757-9370,
ext. 283.

Free Concert
Planned Thursday
Joseph Mendolia, founder
and director of the Communi-
ty Choir, is staging the group's
first appearance at The Church
On The Rock on Thursday.
Mendolia organized the vol-
unteer singers and musicians
during the past few months


and arranged this concert in
the main hall of the church at
301 E. Alsobrook St.
"The community choir will
highlight harps, flutes and vio-
lin during the concert," Men-
dolia said. "We have 17 mem-
bers in the choir for this per-
formance. People will be sur-
prised by the concert," he said.
"Members of the choir are
highly skilled and experienced.
I am very pleased by what we
have accomplished."
Mendolia said he had
planned to attend the Uni-
versity of Central Florida start-
ing in January but transferred
to the University of South Flor-
ida so he can remain active in
developing the choir.
Tryouts and rehearsals for
the 2009 season are set for Jan.
19 at The Church on the Rock.
Those interested in supporting
or joining the choir can call
Mendolia at (813) 263-4091.

Suspect Had 'Nowhere To Run


Intense pressure
flushed Fransisco
Rangel out from
the shadows.
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - More than 400
heavily armed law enforce-
ment officers from at least
eight agencies joined forces
Dec. 5 to capture a suspect in
separate shootings that. killed
two Plant City residents.
SAround 3:40 that afternoon,
Hillsborough County sheriffs
Deputy Walter Brown appre-
hended Fransisco Rangel after
spotting the suspect moving
between two vacant homes at
the comer of North Collins
and East Tever streets, just
north of tlie city's historic resi-
dential district.
Rangel was the focus of a
manhunt launched about 9:30
a.m., when he allegedly initiat-
ed a shootout with sheriffs
detectives on James L. Red-
man Parkway, in front of the
Strawberry Plaza shopping


center, near Henry Avenue.
Rangel was wanted in con-
nection with the slaying of
Michael Longoria and the
shooting of a second man the
previous day at 3506 Juanita
Drive. The wounded man,
whose name has not been re-
leased by authorities, was shot
in the abdomen and is expec-
ted to recover.
Detectives were trailing
Rangel through town, attempt-
ing to pull him over, when he
suddenly stopped his vehicle,
exited and fired 17 rounds at
the detectives. One bullet
struck and killed Candelario
Lagunes, 58, of Plant City, a
passenger in a passing car.
Rangel disabled two police
vehicles with gunfire and fled
north on Redman Parkway in
his Ford Expedition. He drove
through the historic down-
town, continuing into the his-
toric residential area on North
Collins Street.

said Plant City Police Chief Bill
McDaniel. "Whether his vehi-

Rangel left in his vehicle the
high-powered rifle allegedly
used to fire on police in the
vehicle. It was unclear whether
Rangel was armed with a
handgun when he ran north,
McDaniel said.
"Rangel was seen earlier


with a tote bag that could have
hidden a handgun," said Plant
City Police Capt. John Borders.
"A handgun may have been
used in the Thursday shoot-
ings."

City police set up two perim-
eter rings. It-wasn't long before
sheriffs office helicopters and
dozens of patrol swept into the
Plant City area.
Plant City police Capt. Carl
Lane said the rapid saturation
helped drive Rangel into hid-
ing. "What worked in our favor
was once he got on foot he had
to hide," Lane said. "Ie had
nowhere to run. We had him
surrounded. He knew it before
we did."
In addition to the Plant City
Police Department and Hills-
borough County Sheriffs Of-
fice, agencies aiding in the
search included the Polk
County Sheriffs Office, U.S.
Marshals Service, Immigration
and Customs Enforcement,
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, CSX railroad po-
lice and the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Hillsborough County Sheriff
David Gee said he had about
250 deputies and detectives
assigned to the search.
Chief McDaniel said Plant
City provided about 60 offi-
cers, including the depart-
ment's Emergency Response
Team. Many officers were

LOCAL TRAGEDY

tling in the background and a
freckled-faced, barefoot boy
named Opie carrying a fishing
pole and throwing a rock into
Myers Lake.
In the old days in this peace-
ful little town, the local gang
might have gotten together
and rolled a hapless kid in the
mud on his first day of school,
ruining his new clothes.
Those days are gone in Plant
City.
Just take a look at graffiti
around Plant City and you
should have no doubt gangs
are here, and they are violent.
According to Police Chief Bill
McDaniel, there are five orga-
nized street gangs in Plant
City: Sur 13, KCS, CK, Norte 14
and Dover Locos.
The tragic events on Collins
Street show that gangs can
scar Plant City as much as New
York's meanest big city streets.


semi-automatic rifles or shot-
guns, plus other lethal and
less-than-lethal weapons.
Most wore protective vests and
helmets with face shields.
The perimeter police estab-
lished ran along the north-
south railroad tracks, just east
of the neighborhood where
Rangel abandoned his vehicle.
"We had canine units search
the traii and its cargo before
allowing it to pass through the
area," McDaniel said. "We had
well-armed aAd deployed ar-
mored personnel in the woods
and all around the areas where
suspicious activity was report,
ed," McDaniel said. "If Rangel
went into the woods on the
north side of Tever Street, he
didn't stay there long."
At 3:40 p.m., with the police
presence stronger than ever
and growing, Gee was con-
ducting a news conference at
the corner of North Palmer.
and East Herring streets. His
televised update was inter-
rupted by sheriffs personnel
reporting Rangel was in custo-
dy. The vigil and door-to-door
search was over.
Subsequent searches by of-
ficers using dogs failed to re-
cover weapons or other items
linked to Rangel, sheriffs offi-
cials said.

Reporter George H. Newman can
be reached at (813) 865-4451.


Candelario Lagunes, 58, was
an. innocent bystander who
happened to be at the wrong
place at the wrong time. It
could have been you, it could
have been your wife, it could
have been your, child at that
intersection on that fateful Fri-
day morning.
Here's the million-dollar
question: What can the com-
munity do to stop such acts of-
gang violence?
The list of potential solu-
tiolis is as long as the list of
possible reasons behind the
problem.
Some believe the answer to
gang violence can be found in
our community, schools,
churches, recreation facilities
or gang intervention pro-
grams.
But in the end, there is no
substitute for family. The way
a child really grows and devel-
ops is through the family. It's
America's first and most im-
portant social institution.

Meth Kills, Children Learn


Officials talk to
Boys & Girls Club
members about the
dangers of drugs.
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - Methampheta-
mines are highly addictive and
can kill you. That was the
message to about 70 members
of the Plant City Boys & Girls
Clubs last month on National
Methamphetamine Awareness
Day.
Officials who visited the
West Side club to address the
children about the dangers of
methamphetamines included
members of the Plant City Po-
lice and Fire Rescue depart-
ments, detectives and deputies
from the Hillsborough County
Sheriffs Office, and other pub-
lic officials.
"We want to do more than
tell them to just say 'no' to
drugs," said Sharon Moody,
director of the Plant City West


Side Boy� & Girls Club. "We
told them why. Many drugs,
especially methampheta-
mines, are so addictive they
will ruin your life no matter
how strong you think you are."
Participants in the two-hour
event included Steve Wilson,
Henry Falcon and Sara Beth
Frierson, all members of the
club's board; Carlos Jimenez,
director of the East Side Boys &
Girls Club; community volun-
teer John Long Jr.; and Derrick
Hargrove, a reality TV person-
ality.
Mayor Rick Lott, state Rep.
Rich Glorioso, former Kiwanis
Club President Anna Reitz and
City Community Development
Director Jim McDaniel also at-
tended.
Members of the Plant City
Street Crimes Unit and the
Hillsborough County Drug
Awareness Team gave presen-
tation on the effects of drugs,
especially methampheta-
mines.
Sherriffs Lt. Sankar Mon-
toute, a former player for the


Tampa Bay' Buccaneers and
Tampa Bay Bandits, also spoke
to the children about the dan-
gers of addictive drugs.
"Don't take the chance of
trying drugs just because some
friend says they are cool,"
Montoute said. "That person is
not a friend. Drugs can ruin
your life. Drugs can take away
everything you love in life."
Glorioso and Lott asked the
children to focus on plans for
the future as they move toward
adulthood.
Teacher, soldier, fireman,
doctor, nurse, ball player and
politician were among the ca-
reers children mentioned.
"All of your dreams and
plans to grow up and become
someone who can help your
community would be gone if
you give in to drugs," Glorioso
said. "To help keep Plant City a
good place to raise a family,
you have to say no to drugs.
"To make good grades in
school, to go on to college, to

get a good job you have to
stay away from drugs," Glo-
rioso said. "To be a good
parent, to be a role model
and to grow into the best
person you can be, you
have to stay away from
drugs and away from peo-
ple who do drugs. Nothing
good comes from doing
drugs."
Lott stood with club
member Dyamond Jackson,
6, who said he dreams of
one day being elected may-
or.
"Some day, when you be-
come the mayor of Plant
City, I want you to remem-
ber this day," Lott said.
"You should all stay away
from drugs. Do well in
school and all of you can be
a positive part of your com-
munity."

Two men were
fatally shot, a third
died in a car crash.
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
and PETER BERNARD
pbarnard@wfla.com
PLANT CITY - More than 300
people attended a Dec. 10
Catholic Mass and memorial
ceremony for two Plant City
men fatally shot the previous
week and a teen who died in a
Dec. 7 car crash.
.Friends and family mem-
bers gathered at the Plant City
Stadium to remember the life
of Candelario Lagunes, 58, a
bystander shot and killed Dec.
5 by a man wanted on a mur-
der warrant.
Tom Anastasia, pastor of St.
Clement Catholic Church in
Plant City, asked the crowd to
also remember Michael James
Longoria, 36, fatally shot Dec.
4, and his cousin Juan P. San-
chez, 18, who died three days
later in a car crash on U.S. 92
and Rogers Road.
All three were members of
St. Clement.
"We're just trying to come to


be at peace," Lagunes' son,
Henry, said at the memorial
service, "and to move on little
by little."
Authorities say Lagunes and
Longoria were slain by the
same man. Longoria's killing
the previous day prompted the
Hillsborough County Sheriffs
Office to issue a warrant for
Fransisco Rangel's arrest in
connection with the incident.
When Rangel, 25, was spot-
ted by authorities about 9:30
a.m. Dec. 5, he allegedly fired
an AK-47 assault rifle at detec-
tives who were pursuing him,
the sheriffs office said. The
Gunfire disabled two detec-
tives' vehicles and killed La-
gunes, a passenger in a passing
car, authorities said.
Rangel was arrested about
3:40 that afternoon after a six-
hour manhunt through Plant
City streets that involved near-
ly 400 members of local, state
and federal law enforcement
agencies.
Relatives of the three fami-
lies wept during the memorial
service. Henry Lagunes also
grieved but said he recently
received some good news. His
wife learned Dec. 8 she is


pregnant.
"It put a big smile or my
face, it really did," Lagunes
said. "It is so weird how life
works."
Dec. 10 marked the first day
of the Festival of Our Lady of
Guadalupe, but church leaders
amended the program to in-
clude the memorial.
"We're supporting the fami-
ly for what they're going
through," church member An-
selma Fernandez said.
An altar was set up on a
platform in the infield of a
diamond used by softball
teams.
"Do not let death have the
last word," the Rev. Carlos
Rojas, assistant pastor, told the
crowd: "Let life and resurrec-
tion have the last word."
Church member Maria Cha-
vez said the community need-
ed the memorial service, al-
though most expected to kick-
off the five-day festival with a
celebration.
"People here tonight are
hoping it is also the start of the
healing process," Chavez said.

Tribune reporter Ray Reyes con-
tributed to this report. .

Raiders Have Youth On Their Side


Boys and girls
soccer teams show
lots of promise.
SBy DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - They may end
up making a few rookie mis-
takes, but that's a part of the
process their coaches do not
mind so much.
Plant City's boys and girls
soccer teams are both carrying
a large number of first-year
starters, and the result has
been optimism, if not always


wins.
"We're definitely a young
team," said first-year head
coach Wendy Young, who was
a tremendous soccer player for
the Raiders in her high school
days. "The girls are hard work-
ers and have been very posi-
tive."
Young's team might have as
many as eight freshmen on the
field at any given time. The
young players are helped
along by two strong senior
players, leading scorer Emily
Hoy and Kate Wicker.
Hoy does just about every-


thing that can be asked of a
player on the field.
"She sets the tone," Young-
said. "She plays sweeper [on
defense] but makes a lot of
runs up the field."
Through the team's 2-5
start, Hoy had five goals. Plant
City's two wins were against
nondistrict foes Lennard and
Robinson, by a 15-0 total.
Already the girls' team has
more victories than last year's
squad.
On the boys' side, Plant City
has been unable to match last
year's start of not having lost a


game until the final week of
the season. But that does not
come as a surprise.
"We have nine new start-
ers," said Raider head coach
K.C. van der Luit. "I expected
us to be around .500 [the Raid-
ers began with a 3-2-1 mark],
and our record, all things con-
sidered, is not too shabby."
Like the girls' team, the
Raiders have a small core of
leading returners, namely Bri-
an Fekete and Matt Kirkland.
Both Plant City teams are
playing their home games at
Otis M. Andrews Sports Com-


plex this season due to ongo-
ing field work at Raider Stadi-
um.
"That suits me fine because
our district tournament is held
on a big field like the one we're
playing on," said van der Luit,
explaining that the Raider Sta-
dium setup for soccer is a little
narrower than a regulation
soccer field.
Plant City visited Durant on
Tuesday. Next up is taking part
in the Wharton Invitational.
The Raiders play Sickles on
Jan. 3, followed by games with
King and Brandon.

Doctor Spreads Holiday Cheer


A treatment center surprises patients and families with poinsettias for the holidays.


By LAURA FRAZIER
lfrazier@tampatrib.com
BRANDON - Drivers for a
local radiation oncology group
deliver vanloads of patients to
and from treatment offices
across Hillsborough County -
patients who otherwise might
not make it to their appoint-
ments.
They offer the service in
Brandon, Plant City, Sun City
Center, Tampa -and Zephyr-
hills five days a week - for
free.
Each December, the drivers
do double duty by delivering
poinsettias to patients under-
going cancer treatment and to
the families of those who re-'
cently were claimed by the
disease.
Physician Kathryn Kepes,
founder and chief executive
officer of The Center For Radi-
ation Oncology, started the
outreach program she calls
Poinsettias for the People in
2006. She wanted to bring a
little cheer to critically ill or
socially isolated patients and
the families of her patients
who had died.
She said her staff and pa-
tient drivers embraced the
program. Kepes met with her
staff recently at her adminis-
trative offices on Parsons Ave-
nue to launch this year's first
delivery of more than 100
poinsettias.
Driver Victor Cruz has deliv-
ered hundreds of poinsettias
duringg the past three years. He

holidays to transport people

She said the recipients' big
reactions to the small gifts
make the effort worthwhile
and fulfilling.
"They're so happy, you can't

tients who are in serious de-
cline.
"It's kind of a bittersweet,
mad rush to get them poin-
settia for their last Christmas,"
she said.
The staff is driven to keep up
the deliveries through Christ-
mas Eve.
'Inevitably, we'll have a new
patient on Christmas Eve and
find out they are alone," Kepes
said. "As soon as they leave,
we'll say, 'We need to get them
a poinsettia.' It's a tough thing
to be alone and have cancer at
Christmas."

NOT A DECISION.
TO DELAY
If you think that you are either
too young or too healthy to make
plans concerning your funeral, you
should be made to realize that
death does not necessarily observe
a timetable. It is a fact of life that
death can occur at any time. When
it does, you should have clearly
defined plans in place that make
your desires clear. Otherwise,
the burden falls on your family
members to divine your intentions
without you. Decisions such as
these are best not made during the
emotionally charged period that
immediately follows the death of
a loved one. It is not enough to
mention your desires to a family
member or in a will, which is
usually read after the funeral.
Planning in advance can
help you make informed and
thoughtful decisions about funeral
arrangements. It allows you to
choose the specific items you want
and need and compare the prices
offered by several funeral providers.
It also spares your survivors the
stress of making these decisions
under the pressure of time and
strong emotions. For more
informationabout pre-arrangement
please call CAUGHT FUNERAL
HOME at 813-717-9300. We are
located at 708 Dr. Martin Luther
King Blvd. W

PLANT CITY - The Jesuit High
School soccer tournament has
been around for years and
draws numerous top area
teams, but this weekend marks
Durant's first appearance in
the event.
That's because the Cougars
might not have been able, to
hang in the past. This year is a
different story.
"It's a very competitive tour-
nament. This year I think we're
ready for it," said Durant head
coach Jamin Hollingsworth.
His team, laden with se-
niors, is off to an undefeated
start and has clinched a first-
place finish in District 6A-8.
Although the 7-0 start is reason
to get excited, the Cougars
really can make an impression
by coming away with some
wins this weekend.
So loaded is the Jesuit event
- called the High School Soc-
cer Invitational - that the 32
schools have to be split into
Elite and Premiere brackets.
Durant will play three teams in
its pool, including the hosts,
who recently found a perenni-
al spot in the national rank-
ings.
Although Jesuit is hosting
and has an incredible home
stadium complete with artifi-
cial turf, because of the size of
the tourney games are played
at the Ed Radice Sports Com-
plex in North Tampa.
Durant will face Jesuit at 8
p.m. Saturday. On Monday,
the Cougars line up against


SPORTS AWARDS

Continued From Page 30

The Raiders advanced to the
regional tournament for the
first time in more than 20
years.
Cross country awards for the
boys team were garnered by
Gage Munoz (Most Improved),
Javier Minaya (Outstanding
Sophomore), Samuel Gamez
(Outstanding Junior), Luis Car-
denas (Most Dedicated) and


another state power, Tallahas-
see Lincoln, in a 3 p.m. game
and then face Mitchell at 8 that
night.
"This will be a great test to
see where we are at and what
we need to work on," Hollings-
worth said.
Thus far, the Cougars have
been making relatively easy
work of their opponents. Three
of their wins were by one goal,
and the others were lopsided.
Last week, Durant took care of
East Bay, 3-2, in a game that
decided the top spot in 6A-8.
The Cougars went to 5-0 in
district play, and even if they
lost to Plant City in a match
scheduled for Tuesday, Durant
will still finish in first place.
Cecil Clarke has returned as
Durarit's leading scorer, and
Billy Fanning is second on the
team in goals and points. Also
a strong suit is the defense,
which is an all-senior unit
(Freeman Bass, Jarrett Wil-
liams, Micah Garcia, Tommy
McCandless). Williams moved
from playing up to strengthen
the back line.
"Those guys are like their
own clique, and that's good,"
Hollingsworth said. "I like to
challenge them to put up shut-
outs every time."
After the Jesuit tournament,
the Cougars are off for Christ-
mas break but return to anoth-
er quality event when they play
in the Wharton Invitational.
Durant is scheduled to play
Alonso (a defending 6A region
finalist), Bloomingdale and
Lennard.


Kyle Castagno (Dynamic Lead-
ership). For the girls, Elizabeth
Schmidt got the Spirit award,
Stacey Heckerman was noted
for Sportsmanship and the
Coach's Award went to Kath-
lyn Vu.
Swimming trophies went to:
Anthony Lockhart (Most Im-
proved), Gabe Haas (Most
Dedicated), Aaron Sykes
(Team Player), Brandon Kell
(Heart) and Blair Butler ("A"
Game Award). Amanda Knight
from the girls' squad was rec-
ognized as Most Improved.

The nonprofit group offers free

counseling to low-income people.


By JOHN CEBALLOS
jceballos@tampatrib.com
WIMAUMA - Hillsborough
and its surrounding counties
have some of the highest fore-
closure rates in the nation.
"Foreclosures in the county
are through the roof," said
Migdalia Figueroa, managing
attorney for Bay Area Legal
Services' Wimauma office.
"The trouble with the econo-
my is having a major impact
on everything the housing in-
dustry does."
According to California-
based RealtyTrac, the Tampa
area is No. 2 in the country in
foreclosures.
Bay Area Legal Services has
been helping residents since
well before the current eco-
nomic recession.
Established in 1967, the
nonprofit organization pro-
vides free legal services for
low-income families in Hills-
borough, Pinellas and Pasco
counties. It began with four
lawyers but now has five offic-
es with almost 50 lawyers who
help more than 16,000 people.
every year.
The Wimauma office, locat-
ed on the same grounds as the
Beth-El Mission at 18240 U.S.
301 S., first opened 14 years ago
and has three lawyers who
primarily focus on fair-hous-
ing issues.
In October 2007, Bay Area
received a three-year fair
housing grant from the U.S.
Department of Housing and
Urban Development's Super
Notice of Funding Availability.
"With most grants, you have
to write a new one every year,
but since this is a three-year-
grant, we just have to make
sure we perform at a high level
so we get to keep it," Figueroa
said. "Our grant was renewed a
few months ago, so we're very
proud of our work."
The grant provides about
$235,000 per year, which will
be used toward outreach and
education programs.
"When people hear 'low-in-
come' family, they assume we
only work with the migrant
population," Figueroa said.
"Well, we work with docu-
mented members of the mi-
h;j I0 :irlil J^0l7]i "'( L~I' 1%^0

The lawyers at the Wimau-

their efforts to work with se-
nior citizens and people with
disabilities and other health
issues.
"As soon as I got to this
office, I was working with two
or three of every different type
of person within my first year,"
said lawyer Greg Grossman.
The third lawyer in the Wi-
mauma office is Dan Reigle.
On Dec. 14, Figueroa partici-
pated at an outreach event in

Teammates Invited To Bowl Game


By NICHOLAS I.E. MURRAY
.nmurray@tampatrib.com
New Tampa Wildcats Jake
Kennedy and Jacob Meier
have grown up playing foot-
ball together. Now, the two
friends are gearing up for a
big opportunity.
Both running back/line-
backer Kennedy and guard/
defensive lineman Meier
have been named to the 2009
Football University (FBU)
Youth All-American game,
which is being held in con-
junction with the U.S. Army
All-American Bowl in San
Antonio, Texas, in the first
week of January. Three
games will be played, with an
Under-13 game, and two
Under-14 games, one with a
weight-limit of 170 pounds,
the other without.
In the 170-pound game
Meier and Kennedy will play
in, only three players were
selected from Florida, the
other being Ray Lewis III, the
son of Baltimore Ravens
All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis.
The selection process began
earlier this year, with FBU
scouts traveling to games,
and watching game film of
potential candidates. While
both players knew being
named to the East squad was
-a possibility, neither was
expecting it.
"I \vas shocked," Kennedy
said. "I couldn't believe that I
had been selected. It was just
such an honor."
"I was really excited,"
Meier added. "I was just
overwhelmed by it. It's just
really exciting."
Meier's father, Chad, was
both players coach with New
Tampa. The Wildcats junior
varsity squad went 10-0 in the
regular season, and reached
the Mid-Florida Football
Conference Super Bowl be-
fore falling to the Osceola
Panthers.
"I knew that we have sev-
eral good kids on our team,"
Chad Meier said. "But to have
one selected, let alone two,
was a huge accomplishment
for the boys."
An impressive feat, consid-
ering only 22 players were
selected for each team. Jacob
Meier said he had always"
wanted to play in the trench-
es, and that he enjoyed the
physical part of the game.
"I just fell in love with the


YOUTH ROUNDUP


position," Meier said. "I've
never really wanted to play
anything other than O-line
and D-line. It's fun hitting
someone every play. It's real-
ly the only position you do
his everyone on every play."
Kennedy is a tough runner,
who according to Meier will
turn a 6- or 7-yard run into a
30- or 40-yard one. An Ala-
bama Crimson Tide fan
thanks to his cousins, Kenne-
dy attended the Nick Saban
Football Camp in Tuscaloosa,
Ala., earlier this year, and was
named to the camp's All-
Saban team.
Still, Kennedy said - as
did Meier - going to the
All-American game with a
teammate and a close friend
is going to make their trip all
the more special.
"It's going to make it much
more fun and enjoyable,"
Kennedy said. "He's a great
football player, too, and it's
going to be fun to playwith
him down in Texas."
Both players will also get to
take part in the same activ-
ities as their high school
counterparts. Local stand-
outs Orson Charles and Aaron
Murray of Plant and Ryne
Giddens of Armwood have
accepted invitations to the
All-American game, giving
Meier and Kennedy a chance
to learn what it might take to
continue their progression.
"I think they're going to
see what other players are
out there in the country, the
top other players in their age
group," Chad Meier said.
"It'll give them a good mea-
sure of their abilities and
what they need to work on.
"The other thing is ...
they're going to witness
what's involved with the top
high school players in the
country and the recruiting
aspect of it, and what the
coaches are looking for, so I
think from that aspect, it's
going to be a huge learning
experience for them."

Tampa Tribe Aiming
High At TOC
WESLEY CHAPEL - After its
Under-17 squad reached the
final of the Rising Stars divi-


sion at the Dick's Sporting
Goods Lacrosse Tournament
of Champions last season,
the Tampa Tribe is looking
for more.
This year's tournament
begins Jan. 2. in Wesley Cha-
pel, and this weekend saw
the final tryout camp for the
Tribe squad. Supervised by
Tribe coach Tom Fitzsimons
and Ted Garber, the offensive
coordinator of Major League
Lacrosse's Boston Cannons,
the players engaged in a
tough series ofworkouts to
determine who would re-
present the two squads next
month.
"We're trying to ramp up
the competition and make
the kids better," Fitzsimons
said. "There's five teams
coming for the TOC from
Canada, and we know how
well they are, and a lot of
them are state all-star teams.
We've got Team Georgia,
Team Illinois, so there's a
couple of teams that are
really going to be stacked
with talent."
The Tribe is the same way,
with players from as far as
Fort Myers, Sarasota and the
east coast traveling to earn a
place on one of the two
teams. That has meant while
some players have competed
together before, others are
having to learn to adapt to
new teammates. Cameron
Clearwaters, a regular for the
Tribe, said the practices have
been full of intensity.
"It's been pretty heated,"
Clearwaters said. "There's
teams from all-around that
are usually in competition
[against each other], but
we've got to come together
and learn new things togeth-
er."
Clearwaters and his team-
mates are confident they can
make the transition to find
success in the Elite division.
The Tribe have been drawn
in a pool with Team Head-
strong from Pennsylvania
and True Lacrosse from Illi-
nois in the opening round.
"I think we'll make the
transition well," Clearwaters
said. "There's a lot of good
teams coming down, but
we've got a lot of players and
a lot of skill."

Figueroa hopes to con-
