*Plus Sales Tax
by Timothy J. Haught,
Since ancient times, our ancestors
have conducted reverential ceremonies
to accompany the burial of their dead.
Aside from providing the living with
the opportunity to commemorate a
life that has been lived, a funeral
helps grief-stricken individuals take
the first step toward accepting the
reality of death and pay their final
respects. This process can be helped
enormously by the show of emotional
support made by family and friends.
Funerals also help the bereaved by
allowing them to view the body and,
thereby, overcome the denial that
psychologists have established is a
natural part of the grieving process.
Funerals are for the living so that
they might begin to find acceptance
Making funeral arrangements at
the time of loss is extremely difficult
for those left behind. One of the
most caring, loving things you can
do for your family is to leave detailed
information which permits them to
make the funeral service a personal
tribute in keeping with the way you
wanted. When you need assistance
with funeral services, please call
HAUGHT FUNERAL HOME.
We have built a full service funeral
establishment offering personal,
distinctive and affordable services to
individuals and families. Located at
708 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd. W,
we can be reached at 813-717-9300.

Marines Express Thanks
I'm a Marine currently serv-
ing with of 2nd Intelligence
Battalion, P&A Co. USMC. On
its behalf, I'd like to thank you
very much for the all of the
packages and support that
you've sent. Your packages
that were sent have raised the
overall morale of many Ma-
rinesand brought joy to more
Marines than you can imagine.
Also, they were able to reach
Marines in the northern part of
Iraq attached to our company
(ground units). This time of
year tends to be difficult for
troops being away from their
loved ones, and I believe that
the packages could not have
arrived at a more perfect time.
From the moment your
packages arrived, Marines
were already beginning to talk
about the size and number of
the packages that I received.
The boxes just kept coming,
and they brought a lot curi-
osity as to why I personally had
so many packages. When I
explained that they were for
everyone and not just me,
there was a drastic change in
moods throughout the work-
place; everyone was very excit-
ed. I remember it very well and
will never forget the reaction
the Marines had to the packag-
es that you sent; I only wish
that you all had been here to
see it for yourself.
A captain and chief found
one of the Frisbees that you
sent and threw it around for a
while. The cards brought many
smiles, and every Marine en-
joyed reading what the kids
had written. From all the ra-
zors, soap, bed padding, to all
of the snacks, and many more
items of use, everything is ap-
preciated. After the storm of
Marines left for the evening,
the next crew came into work
and saw all the packages you
all sent. You could see the
same joy on their faces as the
first group to receive the pack-
I know in my heart, and
because I was told by all of the
Marines, that everyone is more
than grateful. I was ap-
proached by every Marine in
the company, and all they
could say was "thank you."
I had to explain that it was
not me who put this together
and that there was group of
people from Plant City, Fla.,
who cared about every de-
ployed service member and
wanted to show us that people
from the United States believe
and support us for what we do.
As much as each item re-
ceived meant to us, it was the
intention and spirit behind
those items that meant so
much more. That you took out
the time and effort to put all of
these packages together to
support a group of people that
you've never met and faces
that you've never seen means
so much to us.
Words cannot express our
gratitude. Thank you very, very
much, and God bless everyone
and their families who had a
part in putting this to together.
Thank you for your support,
and we will be home soon.
MARINE CPL. EDWARD
EDITOR'S NOTE: The writer is
referring to a drive to supply
troops with packages during the
holidays that was headed by
Donna Briggs of Plant City. The

one of the volunteers in the drive.

Sportsman Ministries is to allow
youngsters to share the great out-
doors so they can better appreciate
all God's creatures, Pawlowski
"We've been plugging away for
almost three years now, and we're
getting more and more organized,
getting more and more people
involved," said Pawlowski, who
moved here from Seffner 14 years
ago after accepting a job with the
Plant City Police Department.
A 20-yard range allows Bailey's customers to Michael Perry of Ducks Unlimited works with Nathan, 6, who began shooting at age 4,
test-drive archery equipment before they buy. Pawlowski to build the program. draws a bead during a practice session.
"Some of my best shooters are girls. And I've got a good mix of boys and girls going through the program.
Probably the largest growing section of outdoors people is girls and women "

"Safety is first and foremost," says Pawlowski, practicing recently with sons with Noah and Nathan. The eight-week course at Bailey's begins with the
basics, and youngsters who gain an appreciation of archery can register for more clinics, Pawlowski said.
The youth archery program was
launched in 2006. "I was coming
home from a hunting trip, and the
idea popped into my head," Paw-
lowski said. The brainstorm be-
came reality after he rounded up a
group of children interested in
learning how to use a bow and
By 2007, the organization had
joined forces with the Plant City
Family YMCA, and some 60 chil-
dren learned archery during that
organization's summer camp. That
same year, 40 kids, ages 8 to 12,
participated in a weeklong archery
clinic co-sponsored by Trinity and
the church where Pawlowski is a
member, First Baptist of Plant City.
Last year, additional archery
clinics were opened up to youths
and their parents, and advanced
lessons were made available.
Although dads are a natural to
team up with the kids for this
sport, don't discount Mom.
"It's definitely not a boys-only
sport," Pawlowski said.
"Some of my best shooters are
girls. And I've got a good mix of
boys and girls going through the
program," he said. "Probably the
largest growing section of out-
doors people is girls and women."

ment of Education. Prior to
teaching the two-week class,
teachers undergo an eight-
hour Basic Archery Instructor
Training Program, according
to the organization's Web site.
Now, with help of Perry and
the resources at Bailey's Out-
door Products, participants in
the joint independent pro-
gram have use of an indoor
archery range on which to
hone their skills.
Perry became involved with
the youth archery program
through his volunteer work as
east Hillsborough County's
representative for Greenwing,
the Ducks Unlimited program
for ages 17 and younger.
"We're trying to get kids
interested in the outdoors,"
said Perry, a Plant City resi-
dent, avid duck hunter and
Ducks Unlimited member for
a dozen years. Archery is a
sport focusing more on skill
than brawn, which appeals to
many youngsters, Perry said.
"Not everyone's interested
in physical sports," yet for
those with great archery skills
there is an opportunity to
compete globally, as archery is
an Olympic event, he added.
An electrical contractor by
trade, Perry donated lighting
and labor for the archery range
that opened in August at Bai-
ley's, 201 E. Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. Blvd.
The 20-yard range that al-
lows Bailey's customers to
test-drive archery equipment
before they buy and provides
them an indoor practice area is
also being made available to
members of the youth archery
program for several hours
"Safety is first and fore-
tion through the Na-
tional Archery in the
Schools Program is of-
fered at nine Hillsbor-
ough County schools,
including Turkey Creek
and Marshall middle
schools and Durant
most," Pawlowski said. The
eight-week course at Bailey's
begins with the basics, and
youngsters who gain an appre-
ciation of archery can register
for more clinics, Pawlowski
Pawlowski's young sons,
Nathan and Noah, have been
practicing archery for years.
Says Noah, 9: "It's a very old
sport, and it's fun." At home,
he practices his marksman-
ship from the backyard deck,
shooting at paper targets 5 to
20 feet away.
Noah has been shooting
since he was 6, starting like
many children, with an in-
expensive toy bow and arrows
tipped with suction cups. "I
didn't use a compound bow
then. I used a play one," he
Nathan Pawlowski, 6, began
shooting at age 4 but may not
have his heart in it, according
to his older brother, who often
shoots at a life-size three-di-
mensional target of a deer,
complete with color-coding
depicting the animal's vital or-
"Sometimes, when I get a lot
of arrows in the red, Nathan
cries," Noah said.

Spreading The Cheer
At Felton's Market
Shoppers at Felton's Meat &
Produce Market were treated
recently to a little more than
good deals on groceries.
They also enjoyed the angel-
ic voice of Edith Langston.
Langston, minister at Plant
City's METS Ministries, belted
out such holiday classics as
"Jingle Bells," "The First Noel"
and "Oh Come All Ye Faithful,"
in the days leading up to
Christmas. On Christmas Eve,
Faye Brown, with her 3-year-
old great-granddaughter, Kitty
Brown, riding in the shopping
buggy, stopped to listen.
Brown said she enjoyed the
singing by Langston, also a
member of the Gospel METS
Langston has been singing
holiday tunes during the
Christmas season at the gro-
cery store at 617 N. Maryland
Ave. for about eight years.
She doesn't need a micro-
phone as she belts out tunes a
cappella loud enough to be
heard several aisles away.

Top 8 Of '08 Sports Stories
A wealth of strong new items about Plant City and Durant athletes and teams makes
By DAREK SHARP
PLANT CITY Once again it
was a bountiful.year for the
athletic teams from Plant
City and Durant high
Here's the Plant City
Courier & Tribune's Top
Eight of '08 for sports sto-
ries on the two schools.
There was plenty to pick
from as 2008 was partic-
ularly strong for teams ad-
vancing far in the state
playoffs. One individual
went all the way to the top,
in a surprising track result.
The feats are listed chrono-
logically, with the exception
of the first item.:
Plenty of big signing.
Capped by Plant City all-coun-
ty football player Duran Lowe
verbally committing to Divi-
sion I Wake Forest, there were
students from nearly every
sport securing their future ath-
letic endeavors. Durant has
several softball players headed
to college after this season,
with Kelsey Horton going to
the University of Florida. Kara
Cecil, a new member of the
Cougars tennis team, will play
for Ohio State. And the year
started with Raiders offensive
lineman Mark Popek getting
signed by the University of
Return to glory for Raider
hoops. Not only had Plant City
not been to the basketball
playoffs boys or girls -
since 1993, the Raiders never
had so much as a chance to
play in a district title game in
that time. Led by new head
coach Dale Chambers and a
trio of senior standouts, Chan-
ning Woodall, Rod Henderson
and Steve Hardnett, the Raid-
ers broke through first by tak-
ing the district runner-up spot.
Edging Sarasota in a game
played at Riverview High put
Plant City into the postseason,
and once there, the Raiders
flourished with road wins at
Sickles and Lakeland.
The latter was a dramatic,
impressive showing in mid-
February against an opponent
that had beaten Plant City
three times previously.
Though the Raiders lost in the
region finals to Orlando Evans,
coming up one win shy of a
trip to the state semis, it
brought the community to-
gether in remarkable fashion
and served as a re-emergence
of Raider hoops.
Raiders reach state final.
After a narrow escape against
rival Durant to make the flag
football playoffs for the first

& Blood Vessel
Even a small weight gain of about
9 lbs. is enough to disrupt normal
blood vessel function in young,
healthy adults according to Mayo
Chink. If the cells in the lining of
the blood vessels aren't working
properly, this can hinder blood
flow through the vessel. This in
turn raises the risk of stroke and
heart attack. The good news is
the study also found that losing
the extra pounds again restored
proper blood vessel function.

sodding the field was done,
but not until the last week of
the regular season.
Plant City had-to play its first
three scheduled home games
at the would-be visitors' home
turf but then got some help
from rival Durant to hold the
East Bay game at the Cougars'
field. Ironically, that turned
out to be Plant City's best win
of the year. The Raiders did
indeed host Freedom in the
final week of the regular sea-
Cougars end up fourth at
state golf. With talented fresh-
man Madison Opfer added to
an already-strong squad, Du-
