Public Can Sound Off
On Station Relocation
County officials will hold a
public meeting 6:30 p.m.
Tuesday on a proposal to relo-
cate a fire:station from Spring-
head to Bealsville in eastern
Hillsborough.
The Springhead Fire Station
at 4503 Coronet Road is in
need of about $500,000 in ren-
ovations. Fire officials are pon-
dering the possibility of in-
stead building a new station at
Bealsville Park, 5009 Nesmith
Road, at a cost of about $1
million.
County Fire Rescue spokes-
man Ray Yeakley said the
Springhead station was origi-
nally built to serve volunteer
firefighters. The county now
has four paid firefighters there
24 hours a day, and the ac-
commodations are not very
good, he said.
Also, Plant City has annexed
to within a quarter-mile of the
Springhead station, and fire
officials are wondering if it
wouldn't be better to build in
the Bealsville location about
21; miles away, he said.
At the meeting, county staff
members will discuss the de-
tails of the project, answer
questions and receive public
input.
The meeting will be at the
Bealsville Recreation Center,
5009 Nesmith Road
Yeakley said the county
hasn't made the final call on
relocation, and public com-
ments will play a role in the
decision.
"Usually we don't get a lot of
opposition," but the county
wants to hear from residents,
he said.
For information, call Steve
Valdez at the Public Works
Department, (813) 272-5275.

ger, said longtime Plant City
resident Gary Keeler, who is
organizing the event with his
daughter, Layla Drawdy.
"We thought it would be a
good way to get everybody
together and maybe start a
tradition," he said of the first-
time event. "There's nowhere
to go if you want to hear live
music" this side of Ybor City,
said Keeler, formerly of Silver
Dollar Band and Sweet Rye.
Proceeds go to the musi-
cians, and the "volunteer"
designation is derived from
the fact all have volunteered to
perform, Keeler said.
Food and beverage vendors
are scheduled to participate.
No alcoholic beverages will be.
sold, but patrons may bring
their own, Keeler said.
In addition to Keeler, sched-

Celebrate Mardi Gras
At Flower Show
The Plant City Garden Club
is bringing a touch of New
Orleans to its annual flower
show.
Mardi Gras will be the
theme of the Feb. 5 event at
Walden Lake Golf and Country
Club, 2001 Clubhouse Drive.
There's no admission charge
to the 5 to 8 p.m. show.
Members will play off the
Mardi Gras theme with their
floral designs.
The club has held the shows
for about 30 years so members
can display their floral design
skills. The club selects differ-
ent themes for each of its
annual flower shows. Last
year's theme was Elvis Presley.
Club President Cassandra
Banning said members were
brainstorming ideas for 2009
when Em Rawlings, who used
to live in New Orleans and
participated in Mardi Gras pa-
rade balls, suggested it.
"Everybody liked it. It
sounded like fun," Banning
said.
If you want to make an
evening of it, a buffet dinner
will be served from 6 to 8 p.m.
in the main dining room of the
country club for $11.95 per
person. During the meal, Ray
Mercer will perform music
with a New Orleans and Mardi
Gras theme.
Guests don't need to go to
the dinner, but if they plan to
eat, they need to make a reser-


vation by calling Sherry at
(813) 754-8575 by Tuesday.For
information, call Banning at

Rural Citizens' Alliance
Launches Web Site
The Alliance of Rural Citi-
zens, a nonprofit organization
of northeast Hillsborough
County residents and property
owners interested in preserv-
ing their rural lifestyle, has
launched a Web site:
www.arc-hills.org.
"It is our belief that special
interests have been favored by
our local officials for too long
at the expense of our quality of
life," Ronnie Bayless, the
group's community issues vice
president, said in a statement
announcing the Web site.
"Population growth is not
inevitable; it is a choice," Bay-
less said. "We should have a
right to choose a path that is
consistent with the lifestyle we
have chosen, not a direction
that has been selected on the
basis of potential profit."
There are no membership
costs, but donations are en-
couraged.
The Web site is designed to
enhance dialogue among
members and prospective
members and provide visitors
with information about the
organization's activities, news,
resources, membership infor-
mation and contact informa-
tion.
The alliance started with a
group of Cork neighbors who

came together in 2006 to try to
save a 50-acre Stafford Road
orange grove from rezoning to
allow a subdivision they said
was totally out of character

The property was rezoned

City Seeks Bids
For Old YMCA
The city is accepting bids
on the former Plant City
Family YMCA property at .502
E. Young St.
Bids on the 4.3-acre site are
due by 2 p.m. Monday.
After the YMCA terminated
its lease on the
5,000-square-foot masonry
building in 2007, the city
pondered what to do with the
property bounded by Cherry
Street to the north, Vermont
Street to the east, Young


Street to the south and
McDavid Street to the west.
The property was once the
YMCA's main site and in-
cluded a swimming pool,
bathhouses and other facil-
ities that have since been
demolished. The YMCA con-
tinued to offer after-school
programs there after moving
most operations to more spa-
cious quarters at 1507 YMCA
Place, off Alexander Street,
about seven years ago.
The former YMCA site in-
cludes nearly 24,000 square
feet of paved parking, basket-
ball court, shrubs and mature
trees.
The city estimates current
land-use designations would
allow up to 17 lots for single-
family homes.
A recent appraisal obtained
by the city lists the property's
value at $450,000.
For purchase require-
ments, other details and a bid
form, go to the city's Web
site: www.plantcitygov.com.

Boys & Girls Clubs
Is $200 Richer
In conjunction with the


local Polio Tropical restau-
rant, Boys & Girls Clubs of
Plant City raised $200 during
a recent promotion.
The restaurant, at 238 W.
Alexander St., donated 15 per-
cent of it sales generated by
guests of the Boys & Girls
Clubs during the fundraiser.
The multicounty fundraiser
included nine Polio Tropical
locations, raising $3,075 that
will be earmarked to develop
and fund after-school youth
activities throughout the area.
"We thank Polio Tropical
for partnering with our orga-
nization to help the clubs
raise money through a simple
and fun activity," said Daniel
Lyons, executive director of
the Florida Alliance of Boys &
Girls Clubs.
Polio Tropical has part-
nered with Boys & Girls Clubs
throughout the years in vari-
ous communities.
Polio Tropical, which de-
buted in Miami in 1998,
opened last year in Plant City.
For information about the
chain or its benefit and fund-
raising activities, go to

Happy Marriage

People who are happily married have
lower blood pressure than those who
are single or unhappy in their marriage.
Participants in the study wore portable
monitors that recorded blood pressures
at random intervals. Happily married
people scored on average 4 points
lower than single adults. The study
also revealed that blood pressures for
married adults, especially the ones in
happy marriages, dipped more during
sleep than single people. Research
shows a greater risk for cardiovascular
problems among people whose blood
pressure remains high at night than for
those whose pressure dips.

Stepping Up


To


The Plate


A celebrity chef
will lead an event
to help United
Food Bank
replenish its stock.
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The demand
at the United Food Bank
of Plant City has never
been greater.
Fundraisers and contribu-
tions are more important than
ever, food bank officials said.
An upcoming event to benefit
the charity, the Celebrity Chef
Dinner, features the interna-
tionally renowned and widely
travelled Chef Jon Ashton from
Liverpool, England.
"This promises to be a great
event, with good food and
fun," food bank Executive Di-
rector Kelleigh Klein said.
The dinner is 7 p.m. Feb. 7 at
the Trinkle Center on Hillsbor-
ough Community College's
Plant City campus, 1206 N.
Park Road. Tickets are $75
each.
Sponsorships are available
from $800 to $5,000.
The downturn in the econo-
my has led to record demand
at- the food bank at 712 E.
Alsobrook St., Suite 9. The
nonprofit organization helped
12,484 clients in 2008, a 36
percent jump over the previ-
ous year, Klein said.
"Working families who nev-
er imagined they'd be in this
situation find they do not have
enough money to make ends
meet. Without the United
Food Bank, many would go
hungry," she said.
United Food Bank also pro-
vided ''"Thaksgiving, and
Christmas baskets to rm6ore
than 1,200 clients.
"We are fortunate that we
have such a giving community
that enables the United Food
Bank to keep our doors open
and continue to feed those in
our community who are at risk
of going hungry," Klein said.
The food bank depends on
donations of food and non-
perishables, but it also needs
cash to operate. The Celebrity
Chef Dinner is expected to go a
long way toward giving the
food bank the money it needs
to meet the challenges it faces,

"This will be a great oppor-

Jeff Houck, Tampa Tribune

. Klein, 45, took over the
management of the food bank
when its founder, Linda Law-
. son, retired from the executive
director's position in Decem-
ber 2007. Lawson founded the


food bank Sept. 1, 1999, to help
consolidate efforts of local
churches and other organiza-
tions that wanted to help the

The food bank strives to


ITEMS OF
GREATEST NEED
Even if you can't attend the
Feb. 7 fundraiser for the United
Food Bank, you can still help
with donations of money or
food to help keep the shelves
stocked.
Here are the items the food
bank needs the most:
Diapers
Formula
Toiletries, such as shampoo,
soap, toothpaste and tooth-
brushes
Macaroni and cheese (canned
or boxed)
Pop-Tarts
Cereal
Canned soup
Canned fruit
Canned vegetables
Cookies

screen clients to avoid those
who may try to take advantage
of the community's generosity.
Its motto is "A hand up not a
handout."
Klein is the only full-time
employee. Part-time employ-
ees are storeroom supervisor
Cindy Everly and Judy Reyn-
olds, the client intake supervi-
sor and food pickup coordina-
tor.
Everly is responsible for
quantifying and stocking all
foods and supplies and su-
pervises the volunteers who
are so important to the organi-
zation.
"We try to make it a fun
place to work around here,"
Everly said. "There is plenty of
work to be done. But we share
the load to make it so the
volunteers want to come back
and help some more."
Volunteer Gerald Hicks, 27,
was born and raised in the
Plant City area and has lived
most of his life here. He works
as a volunteer almost every
day the food bank is open.
"It's pretty cool working
here," Hicks said. "No one
bosses you around. We all just
do what we need to do to help
out."
Hicks works mainly in the
warehouse, receiving goods
and stocking shelves.
Tina Walton, 48, is a flight
attendant with Air Tran who
moved to Plant City from At-
lanta. She and her husband
moved here to be near her
father.
"I have volunteered as a
caregiver almost all my life. I'm
able to give about four hours
each day when I'm not flying.
It means a lot to be able to help
people in need. I find that I
enjoy it. Actually, I thrive on it.
I feel blessed to be able to offer
my time to help out."

man Chrysler Jeep Dodge, vol-
unteers four hours on his day
off.
"I think you should give
back to a community that has
been good to you," Ross said.
"If each of us would give just a
little time back to the commu-
nity then towns like Plant City,
the county, the state and the
country will be a better place
for the effort."
Ruth Baker and her sister
Eva Almon are going into their
third year volunteering at the
food bank.
"You get a lot of satisfaction
working to benefit others,"
Baker said. "You can get a little
aggravated too when people
that come to us for help don't
appreciate what they can get."
"But this isn't a grocery store
where you buy all you want.
We determine each person's
needs and do our best to meet


them with a predetermined
formula," Baker said. "It's just
one in a hundred that tries to
manipulate the system. We
just won't let them."
Klein said the food bank has
about 20 regular volunteers
who work there each week. In
addition, students volunteer
there to earn community ser-
vice hours.
Courtney Singletary, a
teacher and Leo Club advisor
at Durant High School, said
her club members help unload
and shelve products each
Tuesday and Thursday.
One of the six Durant Leos
at the food bank in early Janu-
ary was 16-year-old sopho-
more Cole Costello.
"All of the Leo members
enjoy giving back to the com-
munity," Costello said. "Seeing
the need felt by other families
that depend on the food bank
makes me realize how fortu-
nate I am and makes me ap-
preciative of what I have."

Queen, Court Look Forward To New Roles


The honor still
hasn't quite sunk
in, they say.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Florida Straw-
berry Festival queen Lauren
Der and her court members
say they are becoming fast
friends as they prepare to re-
present the festival, strawberry
industry and the community.


They all say the honor hasn't
quite sunk in. They've been
deluged with text messages,
Facebook messages and
phone calls since they were
chosen at the Jan. 17 pageant.
On Jan. 20, they were show-
ered with attention as they
made their first official public
appearance at the Plant City
Lions Club's weekly meeting.
"It's happened real fast. It's
just so new," said first maid
Sara Beth Newsome, a 17-year-


old Plant City High School
senior.
Club member Coleman Da-
vis led the Lions in serenading
Der, Newsome and court
members Megan Cochran, Jo-
clyn Emerson and Morgan
Feaster with the song "Let Me
Call You Sweetheart." Pageant
coordinator Stephanie Shuff
said she was impressed with
the new festival royalty, in-
cluding the young women's
"intellect and charm."


The pageant, now in its 74th
year, is sponsored by the
Lions.
After the meeting, the queen
and court members said they
look forward to their roles at
the Feb. 26 through March 8
festival.
Emerson, 20, said she has
been going to the festival since
she moved to the area when
she was 7.
"It's so exciting to be a ma-
jor part of the festival," said


Emerson, a Durant High grad-
uate and sophomore at Hills-
borough Community College.
In their first post-pageant
interview, the queen and court
shared some fun facts:
Der and Newsome live in
the Cork area and have known
each other their whole lives.
They are both active in FFA.
Their mothers are close
friends.

ROYAL ROLES


Continued From Page 13

Lauren's mother, Lori, is a
third-grade teacher at Cork
Elementary and taught Sara
Beth.
Sara Beth's mom, Jo Beth,
teaches English at Plant City
High and taught Lauren in
two classes.
Der, a 19-year-old HCC
freshman, chose Jo Beth
Newsome when she was
asked during the pageant
whom she considers, her
hometown hero.
Jo Beth Newsome said she
felt honored that Der select-
ed her as her hero and that
Lauren has always held a
special part in her heart.
Newsome said she felt
"blessed" that her daughter
won first maid and that she
and Lauren are in the court
together.
"It's been a wonderful ex-
perience. I'm thrilled with-
the way it's turned out," she
said.
Der's selection made
pageant history as the only
time sisters have served as
queen; her sister, Erica, was
queen in 2003. But that
wasn't the only historical
. footnote to her reign. She was
selected by her fellow contes-
tants as Miss Congeniality.
That's the first time in mem-
ory that the queen also won
that award, Shuff said.
The queen and court pre-
side over festival events, such
as introducing headline acts.
They also receive savings'


bonds, flowers, scholarships
and even a year of free tan-
ning at a local salon.
"We're so thankful for ev-
erything," Cochran said.
Der, Newsome and
Feaster are longtime friends.
Emerson and Cochran be-
came friends through a pag-
eant coach.
Der and Feaster were in
their second year competing
for festival queen; the others
were first-time participants.
Once a contestant places on
the court, she cannot enter
the pageant again.
Emerson was named Du-
rant High's Miss Cougar in
2007, an award based on
bodybuilding and fitness.
Feaster, 18, who is studying
cosmetology, was a cheer-
leader all of her four years at
Plant City High before her
2008 graduation. Cochran,
the tallest court member at 5
-feet 11 inches, is a member of
a Special Olympics volleyball
team through the Best Bud-
dies program, which pairs
mainstream students with
those with special needs.
Several court members
have shown livestock at the
festival, but the only one with -
an entry in 2009 is Newsome,
who has a steer named Lyn-
wood, or "Woodie" for short.
They all look forward to
the festival so they can meet
new people and represent
the community. Cochran
adds that she looks forward
to polka dancing on senior
citizen day, and Feaster is
savoring the festival food.

[FROM YOU]


PLANT CITY After Lauren
Der was selected Florida Straw-
berry Festival queen, some
readers at TBO.com made dis-
paraging comments about Plant
City or questioned the fairness
of the pageant, drawing a sharp
response from many others.
Here are excerpts from some
of their responses:
Lauren Der is a very intelli-
gent, well-spoken girl. She has
been involved in FFA and the
community and is a very re-
sponsible young lady. This is
your perfect case of beauty
inside and out. Shame on all of
you that say such mean things
about people you don't know.
Posted by GatorGirl2009
Lauren and [her sister] Erica
have been raised in a good
home with loving parents. They
are good students, very active
in the FFA, very active in their
church and do a lot of volunteer
work in their community. Their
parents are also very active and
hard workers. So it looks like
the apples didn't fall far from
the tree. The girls were taught
well and are fine examples of
parents who took the time and
effort to actually put high ex-
pectations on their children. I
am very happy for Lauren and
her family. They are a great
example to others.

Posted by dagwoodbumstead
Lauren, I was there-last night
and think that you were the
best hands down! I do not know
you nor any of the other girls
that were in the competition,
but you deserved to win and I
am very glad that you did. I am
so tired of people putting Plant
City down so much when they
don't live here nor visit the
town. I wish Lauren and the
other girls the best of luck this
year and to have fun!
Posted by nhsqt83


I cannot believe the audacity
of most of you. Can you really
talk about someone you do not
know? Lauren has been involved
in the community because she
wants to. Her excellence comes
from many hours of practice.
Anyone who was there can
agree that she answered the
question the best! If her connec-
tions were going to win it for
her, she would have won last
year.
Plenty of girls who have been
in the court, or won for that
matter, have not been well-
connected in the community.
Their success, as well as Lau-
ren's, was because of their hard
work and dedication concerning
the public speaking and in-
terview portions of the contest,
which are where the majority of
the points come from. If you

spoken and carry themselves
with confidence. Those girls are
the ones who win.

I've known Lauren my whole
life. I'm in high school now, and
all of my life I've looked up to
her; she's a very pretty girl, and
she's one of the best young girls
in the area. She's nice to any-
one. One time she told me, "You
talk to the lady at the McDo-
nalds drive-through the same as
you would talk to anyone else;
respect everyone." So just shut
up unless you know her!
Posted by strawberry95
I'm so excited for Lauren. She
is a beautiful girl, and she de-
serves to be strawberry queen.
Plant City has produced some of
the finest women in the county,
and the lucky few that have
been strawberry queens are no
different. Erica Der was a won-
derful queen, and I have no
doubt that her sister, Lauren,
will perform with equal grace
and quality. In fact, the whole
court was a first-rate selection. I
would love to see someone
come up With a better choice
than what the judges picked.

CEO Offers Tips On Keeping The Faith At Work


He promoted
the Blackaby
conference.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT-CITY The chief exec-
utive officer of Kforce Profes-
sional Staffing told a group of
religious and business leaders
that he uses biblical principles
in running the Tampa-based
company.


Dave Dunkel was the fea-
tured speaker at a Jan. 15
meeting of Marketplace Events
of Florida, which promotes re-
ligion in the workplace. Dun-
kel was brought in to help
promote a Feb. 6-7 seminar
featuring Henry and Richard
Blackaby, who are father and
son Christian ministers and
authors.
Dunkel said he regularly
meets with Henry Blackaby
and finds him a source of


inspiration in his personal and
professional life. Dunkel said
the Plant City conference
would be "the "experience of
your life."
Dunkel gave several tips on
leading a spiritual life, some of
which he developed with
- Blackaby's inspiration:
Depend on God. "He
wants us to depend on him
every day and every moment,"
he said.
Seek God's wisdom. "The


World doesn't need more of
man's wisdom. The world
needs more of God's wisdom,"
he said.
Daily devotion is a must.
Dunkel said he gets up early so
he can have a quiet time to
pray and prepare for the day.-
Everyone's role model
should be Jesus.
The Blackaby conference is
sponsored by Marketplace
Events, formerly known as
Strategic Marketplace Connec-


tons, which was founded by
the Rev. Norm Blanton. The
group, which promotes the use
of religious values in business,
sponsored a similar confer-
ence in 2006, Blanton said.
The conference was a
"blessing," he said.

Blackaby conference, call

the second night was much

"The temperature reached

Grooms said. "It got down to

place a thin coating of ice on
the strawberry plants. The
constantly regenerated ice
crystals help protect the fruit
and new blossoms.
"We will pick berries off a
plant about 30 to 35 times
from December through
March," Grooms said. "The
plant itself is an evergreen and
won't freeze at those tempera-
tures. But the blossoms and
very young fruit we protected
last night will be ready to pick
around Valentine's Day. We'll
have to wait and see how
much damage was done."
Most of the nation's winter
strawberries are grown in the
Plant City area in a season that
lasts from about Thanksgiving
through Easter.

Steppers Get Red Carpet Treatment


Teams from near and far were welcomed at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Cultural Arts Festival.


By CHERYL KUCK
Tribune correspondent
PLANT CITY Step teams
from across the state helped
kick off the annual Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Cultural Arts
Festival.
The rousing performances
often brought the capacity
crowd at Marshall Middle
School auditorium to its feet as
the teams were judged on such
factors as innovation and com-
pl6xity of the moves.
The step show has been a
popular part of the annual
celebration of King's legacy for
the past eight years. Teams
competed for $1,500 in prizes.
The show was one of the
highlights of the festival, which
included a parade, gospel con-
cert, leadership breakfast and
more. The Improve.ment
League of Plant City has staged
the cultural festival for 23
years.
Stepping or step-dancing is
historically based on song and
percussive (clap/tap/stomp)
precision dance competitions
held for more than 100 years
by AfrIcan-Arqerican sororities
and fraternities. This year's
step show was hosted by co-
median Demetrius "Meech
Dog" Wheeler. He distributed
T-shirts and CDs from one of
the show sponsors, radio sta-
tion WILD 98.7 FM, and asked
everyone to stand and sing
"Lift Every Voice and Sing,"
also known as the Black Na-
tional Anthem.
At the end of the song, ev-
eryone cheered for President
Barack Obama, who was inau-
gurated a few days later.

PLANT CITY The "I Have a
Dream" speech delivered by
the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
at the Lincoln Memorial more
than 45 years ago continues to
inspire people throughout the
nation and the world.
Participants and spectators
in the 23rd annual Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. Freedom Pa-
rade in Plant City said the Jan.
17 parade helped celebrate
King's legacy and the inaugu-
ration of Barack Obama as the
first black president.
Keith Jackson, a social stud-
ies teacher at Plant City High
School and his wife, Karen,
who teaches at Dover Elemen-
tary School, were pleased with
the parade.
"This is not and should not
be Oa celebration by people,
only in the black community,"
Keith Jackson said. "King's
dream that people of all colors
would come together in
friendship and love is a dream
we must all strive for and seek
to achieve."


Alicia Hicks, also a teacher
at the local high school, has
attended many of the annual
parades celebrating the slain
civil rights leader. This year's
parade was three days before
Obama's Jan. 20 inauguration.
"It is significant that so soon
after the national celebration
of Dr. King's legacy that we will
be swearing Barack Obama in
as president," Hicks said.
"There is an' obvious correla-
tion to the dream so beautiful-
ly stated by Dr. King. But they
should be viewed as two sep-
arate and significant calls for
celebration." ,
The parade was led by po-
lice motorcycles and squad
cars with sirens blaring. A local
high school Jr. ROTC honor
guard carried the U.S. and
state flags, followed by officials
and family members of the
parade sponsor, the Improve-
ment League of Plant City.
City officials, school bands
and marching baton twirlers
and majorettes were inter-

District Changes Make


Raiders, Cougars Happy


State's Plan C puts
schools in same
football grouping.
By DAREK SHARP
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY It seemed silly
for longtime rivals Durant and
Plant City to not be able to play
in the same football district.
Especially when the schools
are so close in size, not just
distance.
Durant pushed that point,
and though it took a while, the
Florida High School Athletics
Association got the message.
Late' last week the associa-
tion, which had supposedly set
its final decisions on new foot-
ball district assignments, made
its third set of changes. There
were only a few changes this
time, but the big one locally
was to move Durant from
Class 4A to 5A.
And now the Cougars are
placed alongside Plant City in
District 5A-6, meaning the ri-
vals again will have more than
just bragging rights orfthe line
when they meet up in football.



President Of Firm Earns
Specialist Designation
PLANT CITY Michael Wat-
kins, president of Benefit Asso-
ciates, has earned the Certified
Employee Benefit Specialist
designation from the Interna-
tional Foundation of Employ-
ee Benefit Plans and the Whar-


Newsome, Bloomingdale
and Riverview high schools
round out the revised 5A-6..
The news came on the heels
of what was supposed to have
been the association's final
correction on Jan. 16, which
addressed the complaints of
numerous member schools re-
garding the new football dis-
tricts.
In the course of a few weeks,
Plant City has gone from fac-
ing mostly North Tampa
teams to going up against two
closer Tampa schools to an
all-east Hillsborough County
district.
The Raiders were originally
placed in District 5A-6. along
with Gaither, Alonso, Cham-
berlain and Newsome. After
making its case for a change
along with several other area
schools, Plant City learned that
it would be in 5A-7 along with
Riverview, Tampa Bay Tech
and Freedom.
With the third set of chang-
es, those latter two schools
now are in 5A-7 along with
Brandon and Wharton. Plant


ton School of the University of
Pennsylvania.
Watkins started Benefit As-
sociates in Plant City in 2001.
The company manages group
insurance benefits as well as
individual life and disability
plans.
Watkins qualified for the
designation by passing a series


High in South Tampa, which
was first put in a district with
Riverview and Tampa Bay
Tech, now resides in 5A-5 with
"the three other Tampa schools,
Alonso, Gaither and Chamber-
lain.
"We wanted the change be-
cause of travel," said Plant City
High Athletic Director Trent
Hobbs, citing the expense of
getting the charter buses it
would need to take the Alonso
trip. "Everyone was very sup-
portive of our request."
The easier-to-navigate dis-
. trict schedule is not just from a
travel standpoint. Gaither,
Alonso and Chamberlain have
turned into perennial playoff
teams, and now the Raiders-
don't have to be concerned
with them until playoff time.
Durant was hoping to avoid
a drop from 6A to 4A, but the
association did not originally
agree.
Until last Friday's change,
Durant was to have played in
4A-9 with annual state* title
contender Armwood and al-
ways-tough Hillsborough.

The Super Bowl

plan includes

barriers, searches

and closed roads.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Security will
be so thorough that Raymond
James Stadium will be the
safest place in the country on
Super Bowl Sunday, an NFL
security representative said.
Dan Grossi, a retired Tam-
pa police officer who works
for the National Football
League's security division,
said the NFL and local, state


and federal officers have
worked for months to come
up with a plan to keep the
game safe. Super Bowls and
Olympic games have the
highest levels of security of
any sporting events, he said.
Security will be much tight-
er than when Raymond James
hosted its last Super Bowl in
2001, a few months before the
terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, he
said. Security, which had been
minimal at Super Bowls, was
ratcheted up after the attacks,
he said. The NFL has 35 in-
vestigators who report to the
security .division based in
New York.


Grossi, who was featured
speaker Jan. 14 at the monthly
breakfast meeting of. the
Greater Plant City Chamber of
Commerce, outlined a few of
the security measures:
Fans who attend Sunday's
game will go through security
similar to that faced by pas-
sengers boarding an airliner,
as officers use metal detectors
and X-ray machines. Purses
will be permitted but not
backpacks.
Dale Mabry Highway
around the Tampa stadium
will be closed leading up to
and during the game.
Vehicles will be banned


from the stadium and perim-
eter on game day. Prior to
game day, vehicles minaking
deliveries to the stadium will
be searched extensively.
There will be extensive
use of barriers and fences
outside the stadium.
Security will also be tight
in downtown Tampa and ho-
tels housing the players.
Grossi, who has been in-
volved in planning for 12 Su-
per Bowls, said fans under-
stand and support the need
for heightened security.

Golfer First Wins


Casey Award


Then he secures
spot at community
college in Brevard.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Kyle Martin is
on a roll.
The Plant City High senior
was named the county's Most
Valuable Player in boys golf,
and less than a week later,
secured his collegiate future in
the sport.
Martin received the presti-
gious Casey Award as part of
the Hillsborough County
School Board's fall sports cere-
mony on Jan. 15. Just days
later, he sighed an athletic
scholarship to Brevard Com-
munity College in Cocoa.
Former Raider teammate
Spencer Baldwin just finished
his freshman season at
Brevard.
Athletic performance was a
key factor in the Casey Award,
but academics and leadership
are also considered for the
county sports honors.
Each year county coaches
from each sport vote to honor
the top senior performer. Mar-
tin did not k1dnw he was get-
ting any kind of trophy until
the day of the event, but his
coach suspected Martin had a
good chance.
"The way they work the vot-
ing, you have a bunch of peo-
ple get nominated and then it
comes down to five finalists,"
Raider boys golf coach Gary
Brady said. "I figured then his


chances were really good be-
cause strictly on his scores, I
don't think anyone had a bet-
ter year as an individual in the
county. There's no way anyone
could have voted him any low-
er than second."
Martin set a school record
with a four-under 32 this sea-
son. He came in second in the
district tournament and either
individually or with his team,
reached the regional round all
four years at Plant City.
In Martin's four years at
Plant City High, the Raiders'
combined record was 57-13.
He was a two-time all-county
selection and in his senior sea-
son, averaged 37, or one-over
par for nine holes.
Martin is the son of Greg
Martin and Karen Spivey. The
Casey Award ceremony was
attended by Karen and her
husband, Adam Spivey, along
with Kyle's grandparents Larry
and Diane Martin. Brady and
Plant City High Athletic Direc-
tor Trent Hobbs were also
there.
All of the top fall sports
athletes were honored in the
Jan. 15 event at the Hillsbor-
ough County School Board ad-
mministrationhbuilding, as were
teams with the highest collec-
tive grade-point averages by
sport. Durant was second in
football and third in girls golf.
Cougars golfer Amy West
will be headed to Seminole
Community College, as she
made that signing last week as
well.

Durant Girls Return To Playoffs


The soccer team
will host Alonso in
regional play.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The Durant
High Cougars are back in the
girls soccer playoffs after a
couple of rare years away.
Durant, which made the
postseason during all but one
of the school's first 11 years but
missed out the last two, defeat-
ed Sarasota Riverview 4-0 in
the Jan. 21 6A-8 semifinals.
Durant defeated East Bay
1-0 in the district finals on
Friday, and both teams, by
virtue of reaching the title
game, are headed to the play-
offs.
Regional play starts Thurs-
day. The Cougars will be at
home for the 7 p.m. kickoff
and will face Alonso.
Freshman Gillian Sweet, one
of several Durant underclass-
men logging significant play-
ing time this year, made a big
impact at the district tourney.
Sweet scored a goal in a 2-0


win over host Riverview on
Jan. 20 and then broke through
with two more goals in the
semifinals.
"I hadn't been playing as
well as I would like coming in,"
Sweet said. "I usually try to
beat people with my speed,
and I feel I was able to do
that."
Sweet, who had four goals
all regular season, nearly
matched that total in the first
district tourney contests.
Against Sarasota Riverview,
the halftime score was 0-0, but
Durant tallied twice in the
opening five minutes of the
second half to shock the Rams,
who were the No. 2 seed.
Senior Caitlyn Dever, the
anchor of the Cougars defense,
moved up to score off a corner
kick, making it 1-0 in the very
first minute. Sweet scored to
make it 2-0 and added a goal in
the final 10 minutes. The Cou-
gars tacked ona penalty kick
score from Christy Faliero,
who was rewarded for her two
previous assists.
Leading scorer Marissa
Skindell (eight goals in the


regular season) had the other
goal in the opener against Riv-
erview. The victories on back-
to-back nights were played in
frigid conditions, with players
bundling up in gloves and long
sleeves.
"My hands are blue," goalie
Meghan Fox said after the Sar-
asota Riverview game, where
temperatures hung around 40
degrees.
Fox was appreciative for the
defense's efforts, as was Cou-
gar head coach Dick Sheffield.
"We rotate six girls back
there well, Dever never
leaves leave the field and
we're confident in whoever's
in the game," he said. The rest
of the defensive rotation con-
sists of seniors Mary Helen
Moran and Amanda Bricker,
sophomore outside backs Jes-
sica Ross. and Leslie Knopp
and freshman Shaylyn Corgan.
Another freshman, Riley An-
dreu, was unable to play due to
the flu but will return for re-
gional action.
Sarasota Riverview had
beaten Plant City in the first
round, but the seventh-seeded


Raiders certainly made it in-
teresting in the first half, as it
was 3-2 at the break. However
the Rams broke loose for an
8-3 victory to end Plant City's
season.
Janeth Antunez, Brittany
Lyndsey and Janet Vasquez
scored for the Raiders.
"I was very proud of our girls
this season," said Raider head
coach Wendy Young, whose
team finished with a 4-9 re-
cord. "I was very impressed
with their play against Saraso-
ta Riverview. They worked
hard all season, and I'm
looking forward to seeing
them improve in the seasons
to come."
East Bay was the No. 1 seed
although the Indians, Durant
and Sarasota Riverview all fin-
ished district play with 5-1 re-
cords. East Bay won the tie-
breaker due to superior goal
differential in the games be-
tween the teams.
Sheffield credited a late-sea-
son string of games against
tough opponents in readying
his team for tourney play. "We


got lucky," he said in reference
to how four tough teams lined
up at the end of the schedule.
Durant actually lost its last
four regular-season games, to
Newsome, Plant, Freedom and
Bloomingdale. But, Sheffield
said, "it put us in a situation
here we're playing strong
teams, and it worked out."
No tiebreaker was needed to
decide the top seed in the boys
6A-8 event, as Durant went
6-0. That tourney started Tues-
day at Sarasota High. Durant
entered with a stellar 21-2 re-
cord.
Durant will play tonight, po-
tentially against Plant City with
a spot in the 6A playoffs on the
line. The Raiders were sched-
uled to take on Sarasota River-
view in a first-round game
Tuesday, and the winner gets
Durant tonight at 8. In the
other half of the bracket, the
first-round matchups were
Sarasota vs. Riverview and sec-
ond-seeded East Bay vs. Lake-
land.
The district finals are Friday
at 7 p.m.


Raiders' hoops
leader plays "to his
strength," helping
his team to win.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Getting a se-
nior to change his game mid-
season was not the easiest
thing, but it has been paying
off for the Plant City High
boys basketball team.
Kenny Adams has taken
over a leadership role along
with fellow senior Josh
Thiebe, helping the Raiders to
their improved play of late as
the stretch run approaches.
Adams has gone from aver-
aging fewer than 10 points per
game to career nights where
twice in a week he scored
more than 20 points.
The key? Some friendly ad-
vice from the head coach.
"He's playing to his
strength now," said Raiders
coach Dale Chambers on Ad-
ams' new approach of driving
to the, basket. "He's been a
player who wants to shoot


threes all day. He tells me day
in and day out, he can shoot it
[from outside]. But these last
three to four games, he has
established himself. Good
thing he's a highly coachable
kid."
Adams hit for 24 points, his
career best, in a 71-43 win
over East Bay on Jan. 16. On
Jan. 21, as Plant City was
winning its third straight Dis-
trict 6A-8 game after an 0-6
league start, Adams scored 23
against Riverview.
The Raiders were 6-9 with
the winning streak. Plant City,
having already lost its two
games with rival Durant, was
set to take on the"Ldistrict's
other frontrunner, Lakeland,
for the first time Saturday.
Those teams play again
Thursday in Polk County.
"It's been a strange sched-
ule for us. We're playing bet-
ter," said Chambers, who
compares his squad to the
Durant club of last season,
which came on strong late
and was "one of those oppo-
nents no one wanted to play
at the end of the season."
Onie key to success has


been point guard. Chambers
has tried several different
players at. the spot, and the
latest to give it a shot, junior
Alton Honors, has been han-
dling the duties well.
"He's playing out of posi-
tion but considering that, Al-
ton's doing a good job,"
Chambers said. "As of late,
we're trying to play faster, but
our offense has to play better
if we want to win consistently.
We're more of a half-court
team this year, though we try
to play up-tempo, it's prob-
ably not our strength."
Thiebe missed three games
this year, and his continued
return to health should help.
Durant suffered its first dis-
trict defeat Thursday, 68-58,
against ninth-ranked Lake-
land.
The Cougars have a pair of
big games this week and need
to win at least one to main-
tain a shot at claiming the top
seed for the district tourna-
ment. On Tuesday, Durant
faced Lakeland again, and
this Thursday they wrap up
district play at Sarasota River-
view.
