Those New Year's Resolutions

Are Easy To Make, Easy To Break


PLANT CITY There are
things that endure that are
measured in hundreds of
years.
Other things last long
enough to be measured in
decades.
Then there are concepts that
can be measured in days, such
as New Year's resolutions.
Now that we're two weeks
into January, it's safe to admit
that my New Year's resolutions
have already fallen apart.
For many, the new year
starts with a hug and a kiss
from family and friends, leav-
ing last year's stress and prob-
lems behind. We sing that
song no one knows the words
to and we greet the coming
year with hope a resolution
- to be better to ourselves and
to others.
But you'd think that after
countless years of people mak-
ing New Year's resolutions, the
world would be a far better
place. Doesn't it make sense
that if people went through a
yearly upgrade, the oldest
among us would be pretty
close to perfection by now,
and the youngsters should be
showing signs of improve-


JERRY LOFSTROM

ment?
Yet, few things illustrate our
fallen nature more than New
Year's resolutions. Each year,
with the best of intentions, we
promise that this year we're
really going to keep our prom-
ises. But sure enough, before
long, some temptation comes
along that's just too alluring
and there goes another year of
resolutions.
I know. I've been there.
That got me thinking that
maybe the best suited to make
our New Year's resolutions
may not be us, but the person
who knows us best, someone
who may have a more realistic
point of view on what we need
to do to improve as a person.
Although we might resolve
to help the wife with the laun-


dry and keep the house clean,
maybe our spouse might think
our time would be better spent
if we just did the dishes.
So instead of allowing our-
selves to resolve to get that big
promotion at work this year,
maybe our fellow workers
might resolve that we show up
on time for a change.
We might resolve to buy a
magnificent anniversary gift
for our spouse, but our spouse
might resolve that we show
that consideration each day of
the year.
This year, the Lofstrom fam-
ily celebrated the new year in
the frozen tundra of Minneso-
ta, where we've seen resolu-
tions come and go through the
years.
The only person in the fami-
ly more serious about New
Year's resolutions than me is
my sister Carolyn. We ap-
proach it differently, though.
She writes hers down, and
they're usually funny. I don't,
and mine aren't.
On New Year's Eve, she'll
haul out a long list of changes
she resolves to make in order

to lose weight. Every year,
she'll resolve to change the
same things. With a twinkle in
her eye, she promises to im-
prove next year.
I spend time preparing
mine, too, but I don't write
them down, that's too danger-
ous.
If you tell people you are
going to lose weight, how can
you ever feast on a meal with
your friends?
"How's that weight-loss res-
olution going?" they'll ask as
your fork melts into a creamy
slice of cheesecake. Nobody
wants that kind of embarrass-
ment.
OK, I'll tell you what my
2009 resolutions were: First, no
sweets or rich food until I've
lost 20 pounds; second, no
more beer; and third, be nicer
to others.
Jan. 1 got off to a good start.
For breakfast, I had whole-
grain Raisin Bran with ba-
nanas and skim milk, plus vita-
min supplements.
Later that day, we went to
my sister's son and daughter-
in-law's home. They're pretty
health-conscious, so I figured
keeping my resolutions would
be a snap.
The table had a grand
spread of carrots and baked
zucchini sticks, with nonfat
yogurt dip. The host ap-


preached me, asking what I'd
like to drink.
"Have any juice?" I asked.
"No, it all went last night,
would you like some red wine,
beer or eggnog with rum?"
I took the beer. An ultra-
light beer, though.
After my scrimpy breakfast, I
was starved. Wandering over
to the hors d'oeuvres, I began
talking to my nephew about
Minnesota Viking football, a
passion of mine. Without
thinking, I devoured four or
five carrots and a few zucchini
sticks dipped in yogurt.
Then, it dawned on me -
those weren't carrots, they
were cheddar cheese fingers!
And the sticks weren't zucchi-
ni, they were fried mozzarella.
The nonfat yogurt onion dip
made with sour cream.
My wife, Marti, came over,
and there I was, encrusted in
cheese and sour cream, the
ghastly sight of fatty foods
dripping down my chin and
onion dip on my breath with a
beer in my hand.
She laughed, "I thought
you'd given up beer and rich
foods?"
"Hush, don't you think I
know that?" I snapped.
Oh no, I'd done it. Within
one day of making them, I had
broken three New Year's reso-
lutions without even trying.
And that's why I don't write
them down.

It Was A Royal Good Time


After an exciting year, Kristen Smith prepares to pass on her Florida Strawberry Festival queen crown.


By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
LANT CITY Kristen Smith's
dream come true her reign
as Florida Strawberry Festival
queen draws to a close at a
pageant Saturday night.
She spent the last year wearing
the crown that so many Plant City
area girls covet. The lifelong resi-
dent said she has appreciated the
opportunity to wear it and to re-
present her community and the
Florida Strawberry Festival.
S"It's a wonderful experience and
a blessing," said Smith, who will be
a junior this semester at Southeast-
em University.
Smith, 20, said she's sad to see
her time come to an end, but she's
looking forward to getting back to a
normal schedule. Her year as
queen has been a whirlwind of
activities, from parades to speaking
engagements at local schools. She's
also remained active in her church,
Bethany Baptist, and worked part-
time as a waitress.
Smith said she has grown close
to her court members, first maid
Shaunie Leigh Surrency, Britney
Balliet, Jaclyn Raulerson and
Amanda Nicole Sparkman, in their
year together. Smith said they en-
joyed a lot of happy times together,
including meeting with celebrities
who performed at the 2008 Florida
Strawberry Festival.
A favorite was country singer
Blake Shelton, who clowned
around with Smith and her court
members backstage.

author Anne Hull wrote an
article in The New Yorker

Continued From Page 10

"That was cool. That was
really neat," she said.
There were other surprises
along the way. Smith and her
court had some national expo-
sure when former Plant City
resident and Pulitzer Prize-
winning author Anne Hull
wrote an article in The New
Yorker about the pageant and
the town. The magazine article
was a largely nostalgic piece
about Plant City, including
Hull's childhood memories.
The article had kind words
for Smith.
"When her spirits flagged,
she read Scripture. She drove a
pickup truck, attended a Chris-
tian college, worked part time
as a waitress and wanted to
spend the rest of her life in
Plant City raising a family.
Kristen Smith disproved the
theory that the strawberry
queen had to be the well-
connected daughter of a town
scion; her father repaired
washing machines for a living.
She looked like a young Bobbie
Gentry, and she was just what
Plant City was looking for in
these modem times."
Smith said her time as
queen went all too quickly. "I
didn't realize how fast it's go-
ing," she said.
Smith's final moment in the
spotlight will come when she
takes a walk down the runway

competition since the pageant
sponsor raised academic stan-
dards and abolished the swim-
suit competition in favor of
casual wear.
Pageant officials received
complaints that some contes-
tants were wearing swimwear
that was too revealing, even
though they were limited to a
selection of one-piece suits.
The club said it wasn't bowing
to pressure but decided it was
time to make a switch due to
the changing times. Harris said
the decision has been well
received.
"I really haven't received
any complaints about any of
the changes," he said.
The outgoing queen said she
has mixed feeling about the
change in the competition. It's
actually harder to select casual
wear, said Smith, who helped
her sister shop for Saturday's
competition.


The contestants picked
swimwear from a limited
number of styles approved by
pageant officials, so the choice
was easier, she said.
In addition to the switch to
casual wear, the pageant also
is raising academic standards
for contestants, from a 2.75
grade-point average to a 3.0
GPA.
The pageant is for women
who live in the Plant City area
who are 16 to 20 years old. The
queen and court receive prizes
that include scholarships and
locally, they are treated like
celebrities, and play promi-
nent roles at the strawberry
festival.
Smith, who plans to be a
guidance counselor, said her
advice for the new queen
would include 'to clear her
schedule and to expect to re-
ceive a lot of invitations to
community events. She would
recommend attending as
many as possible because,
"you won't get to do it again."

Remembering King has new significance with Barack Obama's inauguration.


By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Champion of the
Dream, the theme of the Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Cultural Arts Festival
that begins Friday, takes on special
meaning in the wake of the presi-
dential election, organizers say.
The 23rd annual event hosted and
organized by the Improvement
League of Plant City features activities
including a parade, street festival and
the popular Statewide High School
Step Team Competition.
Henry Johnson, president of the
nonprofit Improvement League, said
the four-day festival celebrates cultur-
al diversity.


"The African-American experience
provides an opportunity for people of
all colors and backgrounds to gain
knowledge and understanding involv-
ing black culture," he said. -
The Champion of the Dream theme
was selected before Barack Obama's
Nov. 4 victory.
"While President-elect Obama was
running, we chose the theme because
of the fact of an African-American
being the first to reach that far in the
political arena, not knowing he would
win, but hoping he would," Johnson
said. Obama's victory "was a dream
come true for. a lot of people,"
Johnson added.
Festival events begin with the 11:30


a.m. Friday opening ceremony and
continue through Monday. A Plant
City Photo Archives exhibit will be an
eclectic collection, including photo-
graphs of Marshall Middle School
when it was the local high school
designated for blacks, and the early
days of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Recreation Center, said Gil Gott, pho-
to archives executive director.
At 6:30 p.m. Friday, high school
teams from the area and as far away
as Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Boca
Raton will complete for a $1,000 first
prize in the step-team competition.
The popular event usually packs the

venue for the competition, the
Marshall Middle School gym-
nasium, 15 S. Maryland Ave.,
Johnson said. Admission is $8.
Saturday highlights include
a street festival at the recre-
ation center from 10 a.m. to
10:30 p.m. featuring inflatable
houses, vendors and enter-
tainment. Unlike previous fes-
tivals, there will be no carnival
midway.
The Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. Freedom Parade will start
at 1 p.m. Saturday. Guest
speaker at Sunday's leader-
ship breakfast is Ricky Gallon,
community services manager
of the Boys & Girls Clubs of


Tampa Bay and a former Na-
tional Basketball Association
player whose sports career
began with a club league in
Tampa.
The $25 cost includes
breakfast.
"Basically, I'm going to
speak about how the Boys &
Girls Clubs influenced me,
and I've been able grow up
through the ranks," Gallon
said.
"I've been part of the clubs
since I was a little guy ...
learning things about myself I
didn't think I was capable of,"
said Gallon, who graduated
from Tampa's Jefferson High
in 1974, then attended the
University of Louisville on a
basketball scholarship.
After college, Gallon
"bounced around the NBA"
before continuing his career


playing 17 seasons of basket-
ball with a European league,
he said.
During his 14-year associa-
tion with Boys & Girls Clubs,
/ "I've played a part in helping
youngsters find their niche in
life," Gallon said.
Proceeds from festival
events go toward Improve-
ment League projects. Pro-
jects for 2009 include $1,000
scholarships for four local
high school seniors, the annu-

designated a federal holiday
honoring the civil rights lead-
er.
In addition to the cultural
value, the festival produces an
economic impact for Plant
City, league spokesman Wil-
liam Thomas Jr. said.


"Cultural events seem to be
a tremendous draw; they're
good for the economy," he
said.
Out-of-town step team
competitors, their chaperones
and other festival visitors book
local accommodations for
their stay, he said.
"It fills up hotel rooms, and
that's always good for the city,"
Thomas said.
Festival sponsors include


the Plant City Courier & Tri-
bune.
Additionally, this year's local
event is in collaboration with
the Tampa Bay Black Heritage
Festival. That cultural event
starts Thursday with a 10-day
schedule featuring speakers,
musicians, artists, poets and
craftspeople.

Every Minute Someone Dies From a Heart Attack


CITY UPDATE


Coronary Artery Disease is the number one killer in
the U.S.. An estimated 64 million people in the U.S. have
Cardiovascular Disease nearly 1 in 5 men and women. Of that
number, 13 million have Coronary Heart Disease, the leading
cause of heart attacks.
Nuclear Stress Testing is especially useful in diagnosing
Coronary Artery Disease and blockages in coronary arteries.
Dr. Max Rattes opened the first in-office Nuclear Stress Test
Laboratory in Plant City in December of 2000. Nuclear stress
testing produces images of the heart indicating areas that are
receiving less blood, indicating trouble spots.
Heart attack symptoms include discomfort or pain in chest,
arms, back, neck, or jaw, shortness of breath, nausea, or
light-headedness.

York, where they marched in
the Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade with a group from St.
Petersburg.
"Over the years we have had
so much fun marching in the
Plant City Christmas Parade,"
Ashley said. "In 2007, a friend
of ours suggested we join the
Awesome Original Second
Time Arounders Marching
Band in St. Pete. We were.
accepted in the marching unit
of the band and have had a
great time with them."
The Macy's parade, an event
televised nationally by NBC,
had 10 marching bands this
past year, and its usual array of
spectacular floats and massive
balloons.
The Second Time Arounders
are made up of 512 members
in the band, majors and ma-
jorettes, and a dozen or more
who carried the banner.
Ashley, 70, and High, 69,
attended Plant City High. Ash-
ley went on to graduate from


Florida Southern College in
1962 with a degree in account-
ing. High left high school to
work at McCrory's, getting a
GED at a later date. During
that time their families have
remained close.
Ashley and High were
thrilled being in the parade,
but they said the six-day expe-
rience was a treat in itself.
Organizers for the Awesome
Original Second Time Aroun-
ders booked three chartered
airliners to transport most of
the band members. They
stayed at the Newark Interna-
tional Airport Marriott during
their visit. The group boarded
buses to get to the parade
route, including a practice ses-
sion in the middle of the night.
On the day of the parade,
the group had a 5 a.m. break-
fast at Planet Hollywood. By 9
they were in line for the pa-
rade.
"The parade seemed to
zoom by," High said. "There
was so much excitement and
grandeur that you couldn't
help but enjoy it."
After the parade, the group

boarded buses and returned to
the Marriot for a "grand"
Thanksgiving Day dinner.
Nov. 28 and 29 were deemed
free days for the group. Ashley
and High purchased tour tick-
ets and saw the sites.
"We went to the Radio City
Music Hall Christmas show
and live Nativity scene," High
said. "It was just amazing. We
also saw the New York Phil-
harmonic."
Ashley recalled their reac-
tion to the site of the former
World Trade Center.
"We visited the chapel at
ground zero," she said. "That
was very moving and inspir-
ing. The people in New York
were so beautiful and friendly.
Their patience with visitors is


amazing."
Long lines discouraged
them from taking the Staten
Island Ferry or visiting Ellis
Island, but they did circle the
Statue of Liberty on a dinner
cruise.
"What a trip," Ashley said.
"We would do it again in a
New York minute."

Hopes Parish Nurse -Adds Holistic Touch


The approach of such treatment is to serve Christ through mind, body and spirit.


By DEREK MAUL
Tribune correspondent
PLANT CITY The Rev. Dean
R. Pfeffer of Hope Lutheran
Church is a big fan of parish
nurse Joyce Schirmer VanMatre.
"Joyce has been a phenome-
nal leader in parish nursing," he
said. "In fact, Oct. 19th she
received the Lutheran Services
of Florida Good Samaritan
Award."
Pfeffer went on to list a cata-
logue of areas where she offers
her skills.
"She serves as parish nurse
coordinator for our Florida-
Georgia District and works with
the Lutheran Disaster Relief
Board. She's a parish nurse
mentor, in training as a Ste-
phen's Minister, assists with
hospital, sick and shut-in calls,
and teaches health and wellness
for district church worker con-
ferences. She is tireless."
The Plant City Courier &
Tribune talked with VanMatre
about her work:


Joyce Schirmer VanMatre stays busy as parish nurse at Hope Lu-
theran Church while also wearing many other hats.


Q: How long have you been on
staff?
A: Since 2002. Pastor has been
so willing to have this ministry
here; it's something I've wanted
to do for a long time.

Q: Why have a parish nurse


program?
A: It's a holistic approach to
serving Christ; mind, body and
spirit together for the whole
person. It's up to us to take care
of the gift of our body, to care
for it properly with the help of
God and keep it in good a run-
ning order.


Q: What are some of the initia-
tives you sponsor?
A: Health lectures, workshops,
prevention, blood pressures,
health fairs, encouragement,
referrals, counseling, visitation
at the hospitals. Then I do a lot
of education.

Q: Is the focus older adults?
A: Not at all. We deal with ma-
ternal child care, vaccinations
and prevention for all ages. Our
quarterly Hope Health Herald
newsletter is for everyone. It's
often hard for young parents
when both parents are working
full time; society has put a lot of
constraints on parents. The
church is the perfect place to
think about your balanced
health.

Q: Are you busy?
A. I've been swamped! Especial-
ly now I'm parish nurse coordi-
nator for the Florida-Georgia
District and on the family
church-worker care committee


[pastors, counselors, parish
nurses]. We cover over 200
Missouri Synod Lutheran
churches. I've been blown away
by how many have active pro-
grams. I've found that net-
working is very helpful, and try
to work smarter, not harder.

Q: How is the church respond-
ing?
A: We have the most loving.
congregation, I'm telling you.
Every January we start a new
'walk' as a congregation. This is
our fifth, and we're going to
walk around the world by Easter
or thereabouts. People keep
track of activities and miles.
Then we track it on a map. This
year we walked to India. Then
people just keep going.

Q: Does the walk help?
A: It's amazing. Cholesterol,
blood pressure, pulse, blood
sugars you name it. Weight

is not the issue, health is the -
issue.

Q: Where were you raised?
A: Born in New York [1943],
then all over as an Army brat,
then St. Petersburg after age
11.

Q: What's your education?
A: I went to St. John's Acade-
my in Winfield, Kansas; that
was high school, 1961. Then
Gordon Keller School of Nurs-
ing at Tampa General Hospital.
I earned my diploma in nurs-
ing. Since then it's been non-
stop learning. I'm a nationally
certified case manager, a
certified rehabilitation regis-
tered nurse and a certified
disability management special-
ist. I received my bachelor's at
University Community Hospi-
tal's University of St. Francis in
1989.

Q: Where did you work?
A: Each step moved me for-
ward. I've worked at Tampa
General, in a doctor's office
and with home health. I was
one of the first nurses hired at
Brandon Regional Hospital. The
bulk of my career was as a
rehab nurse. My business was


in Brandon, Independent Group

Q: Are you married?
A: I've been married to Richard
VanMatre since 1965. He's a

Q: Do you enjoy your work?
A: Everything I've done has
prepared me for this position
as parish nurse. God knew
what he was doing. There's
more to parish nursing -
you've got to be spiritually
mature, got to know the Scrip-
tures. I love what I do.

Q: What Scripture guides you?
A: Romans 12:12. 'Be joyful in
hope, patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer.' Share with
God's people who are in need.
Practice hospitality.

because it makes such a big
difference.

Walden Oaks House A Charmer


Couple receive
beautification
award for
November.
By PENNY BRAGG
Special to the Tkibune
PLANT CITY The Plant City
Garden Club beautification
award for November goes to
Sarah and Harold Mott of Wal-
den Oaks Place.
Walden Oaks is interesting
because, although almost ev-
ery house on that street was
the same model to begin with,
everyone has applied their
own creative designs and ideas
to their house. The Motts'
house is a standout among
them due to the overall charm
they have bestowed upon their
home and gardens through
landscape design and selec-
tion and placement of yard art
and plantings.
The Motts moved into this
house in 2001 and brought
some of the plantings from
their previous home of 41
years.
In the front yard is a circle
garden edged with pavers and
planted with Aztec grass in the
center, with its silvery-green
spikes, then surrounded by

Ex-Raider Bowled



Over By Experience

Sherrod Lott's season ends with a bowl trip and a touchdown.


By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY When Sherrod
Lott sat down in the Plant City
High offices to sign with the
University of Buffalo three
years ago, one of the last things
on his mind was playing in a
bowl game.
"Not so soon, no," Lott ad-
mitted.
There were stark facts about
the Buffalo, N.Y., football pro-
gram, facts that would curtail
even the most optimistic per-
son's expectations.
Buffalo had one winning re-
cord after its football program
was elevated to Division I-AA
status in 1993. And the school

"Buffalo is just
like Plant City.
Only itk cold,"
he says.


owned the longest losing
streak in Division I history -
as well as the second-longest
streak.
Those days are gone, and
with Lott along for the ride,
Buffalo is making new history.
Though Buffalo's season
ended with a loss, the fact that
it came in a bowl game is
remarkable. Lott had a big
hand in helping the Bulls to a
stunning Mid-American Con-


ference championship title
and a trip to the International
Bowl in Toronto.
Connecticut defeated Buffa-
lo 38-20 in the Jan. 3 bowl
game, but that certainly did
not detract from what the Bulls
achieved. Buffalo (8-6) man-
aged to win the conference's
East Division with a 5-3 record.
That landed the Bulls in the
conference championship
game, where they were expec-
ted to go down in defeat to
West Division champ Ball
State, an Indiana team that
came in with a 12-0 record.
But Lott's defensive unit
forced four Ball State turn-

Lancers Make Their Point


An under-13 team
with 'castoff
players turns into a
formidable unit.

By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Just getting a
full team on the field became a
humble goal for the Plant City
Lancers Under-13 girls soccer
club.
Last year, the Lancers had to
play in an 8-on-8 league -
which is pretty much the only
option when only eight people
fill out the squad.
Things have changed, and
pretty dramatically. From a
group made up mostly of play-
ers who, frankly, couldn't
make it on other clubs, the
U-13 Lancers have turned into
a greatly respected unit. This
season's success hit a pinnacle
recently when Plant City en-
tered the state rankings.
"It's amazing what, if you
tell someone they can't do
something, how determined
they can be," said Lancers
coach Jim Turcich. "These girls
told me up front, 'Hey, people
say we stink.' They were told
by others that they weren't

Indeed, in his efforts to try to group of others' "castoff" play- est level of Florida club soccer,
field a Lancers squad, Turcich ers has been remarkable. 8-on-8 Division 3, this year's

guess eight girls show up.
But as Turcich called other
clubs around the Tampa Bay
area, he was able to get more
players, and their talent
emerged to the point that the
Lancers were elevated to Divi-
sion 2 play.
The first notion that Plant
City had some talent came at a
summer event in Melbourne
Beach where the Lancers
made the semifinals.
"This was the first time a lot
of these girls had even traveled
anywhere to play soccer," Tur-
cich said. "They made the
semis; then we went to an
event in Palm Harbor and
came so close to making the
finals. We were going, up
against Division I teams, too."
Plant City just needed a tie
against the hosts to claim a
trophy, but Palm Harbor
scored with only 30 seconds
left for a 1-0 win. Still, the
Lancers shook that off and had
another good showing at a
Halloween event in Largo.
One result in particular
showed just how much the
Lancers have improved. They
tied the Hernando Heat, which
beat ihe Lancers 8-0 last sea-

son.
"You would have thought
they'd won the World Cup the
way they celebrated," said Tur-
cich.
With the respect they've
earned at the various tourna-
ments, the Lancers find their
schedule filling up, with tour-
ney invites coming in regular-
ly.
Plant City's record of 9-9-2
through the first 20 games was
good enough to make national
Web site usarank.com take no-
tice. The Lancers are No. 55 in
the state for under-13 girls
teams.
Such a turnaround is hard to
believe, but it came with hard
work; the Lancers held approx-
imately 50 practices before
playing their first game.
Though Turcich has enjoyed
the results, he is far more taken
with how his team has forged
into such a strong group.
"I'm proud to point out that
our girls are quite diverse, and
represent seven different
schools," he said. "Forming a
team is one thing ... becoming
one is quite another. And our
team would not be where it is
without the unbelievable sup-
port of our parents."

pacted the Lancers was a team
visit to Raymond James Stadi-
um to see the USA National
squad take on the Korean Re-
public.
Through his ties with the
national soccer program, Tur-
cich arranged for some of the
players to speak personally
with his team.
"It was unbelievable. It's
hard to get girls to sit still for
very long, but at this game they
stayed glued to their seats.
They were watching the game,
not worrying about the cute
boy two rows down," he said.
Turcich added that the most
special moment of the 2008-09
club schedule so far had noth-
ing to do with his team's on-
field performance.
Shortly before one contest,
the team learned a teammate's
family member had become
seriously ill.
"These young ladies, out of
sight of nearly all in atten-
dance, encircled her, joined
hands and they prayed. It was
an amazing moment for a
group of girls who just a few
. months before were mostly
strangers," Turcich said.
Apart from tournaments,
the Lancers compete in a
league with teams from
around the Tampa Bay area,
including Brandon, Dunedin
and Manatee. The girls' next
home game is Sunday against
Brandon.

Raiders, Cougars Hit


Hardwood After Holiday

The two teams were busy at events during the break.


By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The second
half of the basketball season
is under way, with Plant City
and Durant back to the busi-
ness of trying to improve their
district standing. Both squads
managed to fill their holiday
with enough game action to
prevent rust from setting in.
Plant City travelled to Or-


lando for the KSA Holiday
Classic at the Disney Wide
World of Sports Complex. The
Raiders went 1-2 in the event.
Durant finished its second
2-1 tourney performance,
leaving the Big Blue Classic
with an impressive season re-
cord of 11-3.
Although the Raiders have
slid a bit from last year's
exceptional region final cam-


paign, head coach Dale
Chambers remains encour-
aged.
"Obviously we are not as
good as last year, but I have
seen glimpses of hope," he
said. "We lost our first game
[in Orlando] by 44 points but
bounced back by gutting out
a tough win."

overs, the last two getting
returned for touchdowns. It
was Lott who clinched the
game, taking a fumble back
74 yards for a score. The
highlight was plastered on
ESPN's "SportsCenter" as the
defining play of Buffalo's vic-
tory.
"The coaches called a blitz,
we got to the quarterback and
the ball just popped out. I just
picked it up and took it
home," Lott said. "I knew I'd
be on TV with that one."
Another key moment from
the Bulls' season turned out
to be one of the candidates
for national play of the year.
Buffalo won its first confer-
ence game of the year, 30-28,
over Temple on a 35-yard
Hail Mary touchdown pass on
the last play of the game.
As it turned out, had Tem-
ple won that game, the Owls
would have gone to the con-


ference championship, not
Buffalo. The conference
champion automatically goes
to the International Bowl.
"It was so exciting to go to a
bowl; the atmosphere was in-
credible, and we brought a lot
of fans up from Buffalo," said
Lott, who plays defensive
back for the school. "We knew
it was possible because the
coaches always preached for
us to stay positive. We're like
a big family really; everyone is
like a brother."
Coaching can certainly be
traced as the primary reason
for the football program's tre-
mendous turnaround. A cou-
ple of months before Lott
committed to Buffalo, Turner
Gill was hired in December
2005. It was Gill's first head-
coaching job after serving as
an assistant with the Green
Bay Packers; Gill was a Heis-
man Trophy candidate quar-
terback at Nebraska.
Buffalo became a Division I
program in 1999 after a seven-
year stint in I-AA, where the
only time it finished with a


winning record was an 8-3
mark in 1996.
At Plant City High, Lott
(5-9, 176) was a four-year let-
ter winner and played corner-
back and wide receiver. He
played as a true freshman in
2006 and started six games
before sitting out his second
year. This season, Lott played
in all 14 games and was sev-
enth on the team in tackles.
Lott is the son of Dwight
and Roshanda Copeland.
"Turner, and the entire
coaching staff have helped
shape my son into not only a
good football player but also a
strong, dedicated and well-
mannered young man that
we can all be proud of," Rosh-
anda Copeland said.
She said she also is proud
of how well Lott has adjusted
to the weather on the Canadi-
an border.
"One day. I was in mi-
nus-18-degree weather and
the next I'm visiting home
and it's 80," Lott said. "But
really, Buffalo is just like Plant
City. Only it's cold."

PLANT CITY The 40th sea-
son of the Plant City Recre-
ation & Parks Department/Op-
timist Youth Basketball Pro-
gram began last week. This
year, 44 teams will hit the
courts with a total of 200
games to be played over a
two-month schedule.
Games are played in six age
groups. Most of the Cadet
League (8 and 9 year olds)
action unfolds on Saturday,
but the season tipped off Jan. 6
at the Plant City Family YMCA.
Matthew Mashburn scored.
16 points as the Grizzlies de-
feated the Bullets 28-10, and
Kooper Long had 10 as the
Bears topped the Otters 18-12.
Play also started last week in
the other age groups: Junior
(10 and 11) Boys, Junior Girls,
Senior Boys (12 and 13), Senior
Girls (12 to 14) and Premiere
Boys (14 to 16). Games are held


at the Plant City YMCA as well
as at Tomlin and Marshall
middle schools.
Charles Griffin scored 19
points, and James Perry added
eight as the Heat won their
Premiere opener 44-32 over
the Sonics, and the Cavs edged
the Braves 35-34, with Sat-
urnino Sierra scoring 18.
Not too far away is the Tri-
Star competition the Optimist
Club holds each year. It will
take place at 2 p.m. Jan. 24 at
the Tomlin gymnasium.
Trophies will be awarded for
first, second and third place in
each age group, which starts at
8 and goes up to 13. Boys and
girls compete separately, so as
many as 36 awards may be
presented.
The event is free for anyone
involved in the rec league.
Contestants are judged on
shooting, dribbling and pass-
ing.

multicircular ornament that
Sarah Mott got at the Florida
Strawberry Festival.
Across the driveway, as you
round the comer of the house,
are a dwarf nandina hugging
the garage wall and a 3-foot
croton ringed with Aztec grass.
A pathway of steppingstones
takes you around to the side of
the house. While taking the
path to the backyard, you pass
a variety of plants. Among
them are pink impatiens, red
and white petunias, oyster
plants, scheffilera and coontie
palm.
The Motts enjoy sitting on
their screened back porch and
looking out into the backyard,
which is enclosed by a tall
weathered fence that provides
the backdrop for their botan-
ical vista. Harold Mott has
spent many hours in that gar-
den. First of all, he had to take
out many loads of dirt by hand
and wheelbarrow so that the
water back there would drain
properly. Then he planted the
grass and did all the rockwork.
The largest plants are the
live oak tree in the middle of
the yard, a pink crepe myrtle
off to the right side and an
English dogwood.
A large planted rafus palm
used to be in a container until


HOOPS SEASON


Continued From Page 35

Plant City ran into a power-
house at Disney in the form of
a Los Alamitos, Calif., team.
That squad went on to easily
beat Niceville -for the KSA
championship and left Orlan-
do with a 13-1 record. But the
Raiders would defeat Coven-
try, R.I., 54-51 in a Dec. 29
meeting.
The Raiders returned to ac-
tion last Monday with a district
loss at Sarasota Riverview. A
night later, Alton Honors
scored 17 points, but the Raid-
ers fell by 10 to Brandon. On
Friday night, Durant defeated
Plant City, 63-49; the Raiders
take on Sarasota tonight.
Plant City's next home game
is Friday against East Bay.
Durant had a chance for a
perfect 3-0 stay at the Big Blue
Classic, hosted by Winter Ha-

The Motts, who brought plant-
ings from their previous home
of 41 years, included colorful
crotons in their landscaping. -

Sarah Mott decided it was time
to plant it. Since then, it has
grown and flourished and real-
ly dresses up the left back
comer next to the fence. Ma-
ture azaleas are along the pe-
rimeters of the yard while oth-
er plants, such as smaller aza-
leas, oyster plants, peace lilies,
crotons, coleus, impatiens,
spyglass plants and cut leafs,
fill in the mulched and bor-
dered areas.
Begonias are planted in an
old yard cart that used to be-
long to Sarah Mott's dad. An
antique water pump, a sculp-
ture of a girl feeding bunnies,
and a small tower of stacked
pots and saucers add charm to
the gardens while ornaments,
also purchased at the. Straw-
berry Festival, gently swing
from a shepherd's hook.

ven. The Cougars got 21 points
from A.J. Garden in winning its
first game there, 63-45, against
Lake Region.
The Cougars had a huge
fourth quarter, outscoring
Lake Gibson 27-8, to beat the
Braves 80-59. Guard Jordan
Mitchell poured in 21 points,
and Garden added 18. But Du-
rant struggled on New Year's
Eve against Auburndale, losing
44-39.
The Cougars were without
leading scorer and top defend-
er Andre Nation because of an
ankle injury, but he should be
good to go the rest of the way.
"We're looking forward to
getting back into the district
schedule," said Durant head
coach Jeff Shotwell. The Cou-
gars enter the second half of
the season with the 6A-8 lead,
but Lakeland and Sarasota Riv-
erview are close behind.
Durant must play defending
district champ Lakeland twice,
the first meeting Jan. 22 at the
Cougar gym.
