Signs of economic recovery can be seen in downtown Plant City. Eateries are grabbing up long-vacant spaces. A full-service Italian res-
taurant opened soon after another bailed out, and a wine and cigar cafe is taking its best shot at succeeding.

The suffering economy has shut down some
Plant City businesses. Yet entrepreneurs in love
with the historic district are optimistic.

dream come true, but the
young couple had no idea

Amanda Sprauge, a trainer
at The Power Shop gym, 114 E.'
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

York City and wanted flavor-
ful, healthful-portion meals.
Cynthia Diaz prepared meals
for her, and after the visit,
shipped dinner kits to the
model in Manhattan.
Located at 121 E. Reynolds

from beauty to cleaning sup-
plies, and even nutritious
natural candy. In addition to a
breakfast and lunch menu,
Cynthia Diaz also prepares
dinner kits.
"Everything is made from
scratch," she said.
The couple came to Plant
City about four years ago and
have a 2-year-old son, Joe
Thunder.
"We buy local, seasonally
grown fruits and vegetables,"
Cynthia Diaz said. "Our reci-
pes are great for everyone,
including people on dietary
restrictions -those concerned
with calorie intake and al-
lergies."

Earth, Wine & Fire partners Daniel Del Pino, left, and Kris Smith discuss how to hang artwork they will sell at the new business. A grand opening is planned Thursday.


Moving In ...


Some businesses haven't been able to weather the economic downturn,
but others, with hopes and new ideas, think they can make a go of it
in the historic downtown.


Entrepreneurs are optimistic
about the historic downtown.


By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
P LANT CITY From Wall
Street to Main Street, the
economy is reeling.
Yet as Circuit City and other
mammoth retailers collapse
and chains such as Bennigan's
shutter restaurants coast to
coast, in historic downtown
Plant City there is some evi-
dence of economic optimism.
Along East Reynolds Street,
eateries are grabbing up long-
vacant spaces and a full-ser-


vice Italian restaurant opened
soon after another bailed out.
Optimism shared by new-
comers to the downtown busi-
ness scene is outweighed only
by their enthusiasm.
"There's magic in Plant City,
and I wanted to be part of it,"
said Daniel Del Pino, who in-
vested a small inheritance and
most of his lifesavings to
launch Earth, Wine & Fire, 117
E. Reynolds St. "I literally
walked downtown and fell in
love with Plant City."


A native of northern Califor-
nia's scenic Marin County, the
38-year-old came here via
Jacksonville a year ago when
his employer, travel plaza op-
erator Flying J, promoted him
to manage the company's
Seffner site.
But his heart wasn't in it,
and he dreamed of opening a
unique but simple place, a
home away from home where
customers can relax, socialize,
enjoy beer or wine and smoke
a cigar.


He and "sweat equity busi-
ness partner" Kris Smith, a
,Plant City native, rented the
narrow 1,200-square-foot
storefront in the historic Mays
Building, a long-vacant space
that once housed Memory
Makers sports shop, Herban
Cowboy and Edge Photogra-
phy.
In support of other business
owners with a financial stake
in Plant City, Del Pino
shopped locally for his con-
tractor, plumber, electrician

















































Marian Jones, whose Marian Jones Accents gift shop is set to close in March, says Plant City's historic district is not promoted as much as it should be.






... And Moving Out


"It's just a basic lack of sales. It's nothing but the fact people just aren't buying.
We check our prices. We were always competitive with everyone; we were fair: we were courteous.
MARIAN JONES
Owner of Marian Jones'Accents, a downtown gift shop scheduled to close March 31


and all remodeling supplies,
resorting to out-of-town
sources only for a grease trap
and Ikea lighting.
Del Pino doesn't dream of
making it big, and that's not
how he will measure success at
his 44-seat establishment.
"If I can profit $300, $400 a
week I can survive; my over-
head is so low," Del Pino said.
"I opened up to show my
passion and give life to historic
downtown."
Next door, the 2,500 square


feet that housed Good Times
Caf6 until the late 1990s re-
cently became home to Savan-
nah's Place.
Jean Hayes, who operates
the breakfast and lunch spot
with her two daughters, said
the "restaurant for rent" sign'
appeared at just the right time.
Savannah's outgrew its origi-
nal space at 624 Evers St.
within 10 months.
Larger quarters have al-
lowed for expansion of the
sandwich menu to include


soups, salads, daily hot entrees
and desserts..
Despite the economy, busi-
ness is increasing weekly, said
Hayes, adding that she may
extend hours to include week-
end evenings and Sundays.
Cathy Davenport, owner-
operator of Sister's & Co., said
Plant City residents have long
been the backbone of her
12-year-old ladies' apparel
business. "That's where our
success comes from. We are
still seeing our locals; we're


doing fine," she said of her
2,500-square-foot shop at 104
E Reynolds in the Mann Build-
ing, erected in 1914.
She said small shops have
some advantages. "We can of-
fer something large retailers
can't: We get to know our
customers."
Being in the historic down-
town area has its own perks,
she said. "We do have some-
thing unique to offer. We have

MAKING MOVES

Continued From Page 11

some of the best architecture
around and also have that
small-town charm," said
Davenport, a Plant City na-
tive. "We've been blessed."
On the other hand, Marian
Jones' Accents, 107 E. Reyn-
olds St., a longtime down-
town gift shop, is scheduled
to close March 31.
"It's just a basic lack of
sales," largely due to the de-
teriorating economy, owner
Marian Jones said. "It's noth-
ing but the fact people just
aren't buying," despite a
stream of browsers and doing
everything a business owner
can to keep afloat.
"We check our prices. We
were always competitive with
everyone; we were fair; we
were courteous," said Jones ,
in the midst of her going-out-
of business sale: 40 percent
off everything.
"Through the 11 years
we've been in business, most
of our customers came from
outside of Plant City," so gas-
oline that once teetered be-
tween $3 and $4 a gallon was'
another blow to business,
Jones said. Had more of her
customer base been local,
"We would have been a lot
better off," she said.
She adds, however, that
Plant City's historic district is
not promoted as much as it
should be, pointing to places
such as Lakeland and Mount
Dora, home to numerous
downtown festivals.
Jon Davis, vice president of
the Historic Downtown Plant
City Merchants and Business
Association, said the non-
profit group sponsors a
monthly antiques market
and is looking at adding sea-
sonal events to draw crowds.
"We've kicked around a lot
of different ideas, like maybe
an Oktoberfest," Davis said.
"You've got to gear more to-
ward spring and fall. It's hard
to do outdoor events in sum-
mer because people will just
swelter in the heat."
Davis said he is encour-
aged by the opening of new
restaurants "The more diver-
sity we have downtown the
better. We want to keep the
antiques. We want to be
known for that, but we want
to appeal to everybody," he
said.
A train observation plat-
form planned for the down-
town depot at 102 N. Palmer
St. is expected to draw rail


buffs to town.
"We're going to get a lot
more aggressive on our pro-
motions and fundraising
once we have all our draw-
ings completed and have a
timetable" for the project,
Davis said.
As for the 2-year-old Es-
press Yourself Coffee 101, a
coffee shop Davis and his
wife operate at 101 E. J. Arden
Mays Blvd., business is
"tight" lately, he said.
"When we first opened, it
built up for while and
seemed like it was kind of
carrying itself," he said. "I
have a construction compa-
ny as well, and even as poor
as construction is, I've had to
feed the coffee shop with my
construction business."
While everyone downtown
would welcome additional
business, "Overall, we're
hanging in there," Davis said.
"That's all we can do" until,
hopefully, the economy im-
proves.
Downtown has seen its
shares'of ups and downs over
the years. Once the booming
center of Plant City's com-
merce, merchants started
moving to suburban shop-
ping centers in the 1960s, and
downtown began to decline.
But in the mid-1990s, the city
established the historic dis-
trict, and investors began re-
storing the buildings, many
dating to the early 1900s.
Marion Smith, president of
the Greater Plant City Cham-
ber of Commerce since 2001,
acknowledges these are try-
ing times for most businesses
- especially retailers and
restaurants trying to en-
dure a lackluster economy.
"Everybody is hurting a lit-
tle bit right now," Smith said.
"I admire the people who are
opening up" new businesses.
"They have their hearts in it
and everybody wishes them
well. And we hope all the
other stores can hang in
there; we're all in this togeth-
er."
The historic downtown
continues to be a drawing
card. "We have people com-
ing in every day" to the
chamber office at 106 N. Ev-
ers St., inquiring about things
to see and do downtown,
Smith said.
Some of the visitors Smith
meets when they pop into
the chamber office are often
spotted later dining at local
restaurants or photographing
the city's historic brick build-
ings.

PLANT CITY Mary Yvette
Thomas Mathis, the only Plant
City commissioner facing re-
election this year, has an-
nounced she will seek another
three-year term.
In making her announce-
ment at the Jan. 26 Plant City
Commission meeting, Mathis
said she initially began prepar-
ing a formal announcement of
'her candidacy. She decided
against a prepared speech.
"Sometimes you just need to
look at people and speak from
your heart. I want everyone to
know I'm doing this because I
love what I do," she said of her
job on the five-member com-
mission.

"I stand here at this time in
honor and in memory of my
father. He was my inspiration,"
she said of Willie Thomas Jr.,
82, who died April 3 after a
yearlong bout with prostate
cancer.
She has characterized her
late father as her mentor and
political adviser. He was a fa-
miliar face around city hall and
a regular at commission meet-
ings until he became ill.
Mathis won a special elec-
tion in January 2000 to com-

who died of cancer two

Mathis went on to win the

Haldane, with husband Clint, show their son, Luke Matthew, born Plant City teenager Lekeisha
Oct. 27 at Lakeland Regional Medical Center. Goodman will compete Feb. 15
in the 2009 Miss Teen Tampa
competition.


Center, 102 N. Palmer St.
Individuals or groups are
urged to prepare their best for
the event, which will be from
11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
"The categories are mild,
spicy and novelty. And under
novelty, you get some interest-
ing" ingredients, arts council
vice president Gil Gott said.
The entry fee for each cate-
gory is $15, which includes a
4-foot table and cooking sta-
tion, and $30 for an 8-footer
suitable for multiple entries
and groups. Each cook pre-
pares several gallons of each
entry, enough for sampling by
judges .and spectators alike.
"People pay $5 and get a


bowl and a spoon and, of
course, napkins, and can go
around and taste any, and if
they want, all" entries, Gott
said.
In each category, the first-
place winner receives $100,
and second place earns $50.
There is a $25 cash prize for
the best-decorated table.
There is also a people's
choice award determined by
spectators' votes.
Entertainment at the out-
door event will include perfor-
mances by members of
Jackie's Dance Theatre.

Parks Official Has
New Role As Mom
If you were wondering what
became of Deborah Haldane
for a few weeks, there was a
good reason the Plant City
Recreation and Parks Depart-
ment veteran was out of the
office.
She became a new mom.
Luke Matthew was born
Oct. 27 at Lakeland Regional
Medical Center to Haldane
and her husband, Clint. Hal-


Ll


dane, the department's pro-
gram manager, returned to
work Jan. 20 following three
months of maternity leave.
Luke Matthew was the first
baby for the couple, who mar-
ried in 1995.
Haldane has been a city
recreation employee for al-
most 14 years. She worked for
recreation departments in
Daytona, Lakeland and Talla-
hassee before starting work for
Plant City.
The maternity leave was the
longest Haldane has been off
at any one time since she
joined the city staff. Of course,
after helping nurture thou-
sands of other people's chil-
dren, she is thrilled have one
of her own.
"It's fantastic. It gets more
fantastic each day," she said.

Junior Sets Sights
On Miss Teen Tampa
A Plant City teenager will
compete Feb. 15 in the 2009
Miss Teen Tampa competi-
tion.
Lekeisha Goodman, a 16-
year-old junior at Victory
Christian Academy in Lake-
land, will compete for her
share of thousands of dollars
in prizes and gifts. She will
compete in the Miss Teen
division. The competition in-
cludes modeling routines in
casual wear and formal wear.
The judges will also look at
personality and interview
skills.
If Goodman wins Miss Teen
Tampa, she will go to the
Cities of America National
Competition in Orlando.
Her grandmother, Jeanell
Vickers, is understandably
proud. She said her grand-
daughter is an animal lover
who wants to be a veterinari-
an.
"She's trying to make a dif-
ference when she gets to be an
adult," Vickers said.

Comedian To Discuss
Sexual Revolution
Keith Deltano will employ
his comedic talents to encour-
age good decision-making
when he brings his show, "The
New Sexual Revolution," to
Shiloh Baptist Church next
week.
The free show at 6:30 p.m.
Feb. 13 at the church, 905 W.
Terrace Drive, Plant City, will
feature comedy, music and
food and is open to all, in-
cluding parents.
Deltano calls his perfor-
mance "serious comedy,"
which he explained in a tele-
phone interview: "All my
shows have sometimes con-
troversial topics involved with
them and that's where the
serious comedy comes in."
The North Carolina-based
Deltano has been performing
since 1993, throughout the
United States and in Europe.
He was previously a youth
pastor and an award-winning
public school teacher who be-
gan using comedy prior to
that, as a military police officer
at Fort Bragg, N.C.
Responding to a domestic
dispute and encountering an
angry Green Beret husband,
he told the angry soldier,
"Dude, you just punched a
hole through two layers of
sheetrock." Soon, Deltano had
husband and wife both laugh-
ing.
Deltano's superior arrived
as backup and was incred-
ulous, asking how Deltano got
the large soldier into the patrol
car. "I'm not sure, Sarge. I
think I used stand-up" come-
dy, Deltano replied.
Qeltano said his program


dealing with teen sexual be-
havior combines Scripture, au-
dience interaction and cultural
commentary into an unusual
style of uplifting commentary.
It can, however, be graphic
and, therefore, recommended
only for ages 13 and older. He
urges parents view a clip of his
show on his Web site:
www.DefyConformity.com.
Immediately following the
show, Deltano will conduct a
workshop just for parents, pro-
viding tips on protecting teens

A Jeep crashed into
the Chevy, pushing
it onto the tracks.
By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY A mother and
her two children managed to
get out of their immobilized
car just before it was hit by an
Amtrak train Jan. 23.
Their car was clipped by the
passenger train shortly after 4
p.m. at the crossing at Al-
exander Street just north of Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. Bou-
levard.
Nikia Wynn of Plant City,
driver of the four-door 1999
Chevrolet Lumina, said she
was northbound on Alexander
when a Jeep struck her car
from behind and fled the
scene.
"I saw that guy behind me;
he had to be going at least 40,
45 mph," Wynn said. "Next
thing you know, he hit my
car," pushing it onto the track,
deploying its two airbags and
immobilizing the vehicle.

Nikia Wynn and her two children managed to get out of their
Chevrolet Lumina before it was hit at a railroad crossing.


Jamison, 10, all safely exited
the car before it was hit by the
train.
Plant City police Officer
Fred Morris said the engineer
of the Amtrak train en route to
Tampa saw the car on the
track and was able to slow to
about 15 mph before impact.
"He wasn't able to stop in
time, but his speed was so slow


it didn't really do any damage
to the train," Morris said. The
majority of damage to the rear
of the Chevrolet was caused by
the Jeep, not the train, he said.
Police later located the Jeep
and impounded it until they
locate the owner and ascertain
the identity of the driver.
The accident delayed the
train for nearly a half-hour.

City Splits Cost Of'No Parking' Signs


Royal Hills
association agrees
to pay other half.
By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY A homeowners
association's dedication to im-
prove traffic safety around its
park and playground has
reached resolution through a
cost-sharing arrangement with
the city.
At the Jan. 26 Plant City
Commission meeting, Royal
Hills Homeowners Association


officers said the association
will pay half of the estimated
$1,800 for "no parking" signs
on streets bordering the park
and playground in their com-
munity on the city's west side,
off State Road 574.
.Cost-sharing came at the
suggestion of Commissioner
Dan Raulerson, conceding "it's
not an exorbitant amount."
Commissioners offered to
delay action pending associa-
tion board approval, but asso-
ciation president Christine
Wynne said it was unneces-
sary.


"We can commit to 50 per-
cent," she said, explaining that
she and treasurer Randall Bar-
ner, also at the meeting, re-
present two-thirds of the asso-
ciation's officers and concur
on the cost-sharing.
The association's original
request in March also sought a
reduction in the community
speed limit from 30 to 25 and
speed tables on streets around
the park.
Following an investigation
that determined 85 percent of
vehicles traveling the streets
were going 24 to 31 mph, the


city in July denied that request
and the one for speed tables,
which would reduce response
time by emergency vehicles.
Earlier this month, the
homeowners association
asked the city to proceed with
the portion of its request pro-
hibiting parking at all times on
select stretches of Scarlet Ma-
ple Court, Country Hills Bou-
levard and Abigail Road
around the park and play-
ground.
Vehicles parked on those
22-foot-wide streets pose a
dangerbecause children might


dart between them into the
path of a vehicle, association
officers have said.
"This is our last-ditch ef-
fort," Wynne said during the
final public hearing on the
parking ordinance, adding that
residents have, long sought
such safety improvements in
their community.
Commissioners unani-
mously adopted the parking
ordinance.

PLANT CITY
COMMI SSION ACTION


Rescue Crew Shows

Off New Ambulance


Items of interest from the
Jan. 26 Plant City Commission
meeting include:
Fire Rescue Chief George
Shiley and his crew displayed
the city's newest ambulance
outside City Hall prior to the
meeting.
Received just before Christ-
mas, the new unit had already
been on five emergency calls
prior to the 7:30 p.m. meeting.
The official unveiling of the
new vehicle included a dem-
onstration of a power stretcher
that Plant City Fire Rescue
hopes to acquire three of
through a Florida Department
of Health grant that would pay
75 percent, or all but $8,886 of
the total $35,544.
The stretcher's battery-pow-
ered pneumatic legs extend, so
the stretcher is level with the
rear deck of the ambulance
and can be easily wheeled in or
out of the vehicle. The device
avoids drops and reduces back
injuries to emergency person-
nel
The city adopted an emer-
gency ordinance extending
compliance with recent modi-
fications to Southwest Florida
Water Management District
restrictions on lawn irrigation.
The district's Dec. 16 order
extends current water-use re-
strictions through June.
In background about the
water shortage, the district
said the cumulative rainfall
deficit in its 16-county area


was 4.8 .inches during the 12-
month period that ended in
November.
Throughout the district, lake
levels are low, river flows are
extremely impaired and
groundwater levels are below
normal- and declining, the
agency said.
The emergency ordinance
supersedes city regulations on
new landscaping.
Among other things, the
emergency action further re-
stricts waivers for irrigation of
-new lawns and shrubs.
City Manager David Sol-
lenberger reported 153 munic-
ipal employees participated in
the United Way campaign
through payroll deductions,
contributing $25,568, a 4.2 per-
cent increase over the previous
year.
"The increase is the result of
the continued generosity of
previous givers and an addi-
tional 15 new givers this year,"
Sollenberger stated in his re-
port to commissioners.
The city has 442 employees.
Reconstruction of the
Palmer Road railroad crossing
scheduled to begin Jan. 23 was
delayed because CSX crews
were occupied with Tampa
projects in advance of Sun-
day's Super Bowl, the city
manager reported.
The Palmer Street project is
rescheduled for March.

Savannah's Place,
which has moved
to larger quarters.
By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY While many
restaurants are struggling to
stay afloat, one fairly new Plant
City eatery has already moved
to larger quarters and expan-
ded its menu.
Family-owned and -operat-
ed. Savannah's Place recently
moved to 115 E. Reynolds St.,
in the 93-year-old Mays Build-
ing in the heart of historic
downtown.
The new site offers greater
visibility in a higher traffic ar-
ea, said Jean Hayes, matriarch
of the business launched last
year in smaller quarters at
624 Evers St. That site could
accommodate only a small.
sandwich shop.
"We kind of wanted to do
something as a family," and
daughter Rhonda Hayes al-
ways dreamed of being in the
food business in one form or
another, Jean said.

going and had a lot of ideas"
but insufficient space
"Within 10 months, we knew
we had outgrown it," Jean
Hayes said. "We gave birth
there, that's what I say."


The restaurant's new site in the Mays Building
offers greater visibility and more traffic.


About the time family mem-
bers decided larger quarters
were a necessity, they spotted
a "Restaurant for Rent" sign at
the Mays Building. They made
the move about three months


ago.
Savannah's Place fills a
ground-floor space most re-
cently occupied by Good
Times Cafe, which closed in
the late 1990s.

club sandwiches, ham and
cheese and roast beef round
out the menu, which is still
being refined. Soups (served
with fresh Cuban bread),
smoothies, coffees, other bev-
erages and assorted desserts
are also offered.
Hayes, a Maryland native
who came to Florida three
decades ago, has lived in
Plant City for 13 years and is
the former catering coordina-
tor for.the full-service cafete-
ria at Verizon's Tampa head-
quarters off Fletcher Avenue.
Savannah's Place offers ca-
tering tailored to customers'
needs, not limiting them to
selecting from standardized
menus, Hayes said.
Hayes is assisted in the
kitchen by Natasha Richard-:


son, who made the move
from the original location.
Rhonda Hayes, 35, also works
full time at the restaurant,
feeding a love of cooking born
years ago.
"Spanish and Italian are my
two big loves," she said. "Sal-
ads are big, too," she added,
singling out the restaurant's
signature Fiesta Salad.
Rhonda's sister, Allison, 25,
also works fulltime at the
family business.
Despite the long vacancy at
the former Good Times Cafe
site, the "for rent" sign went
up only recently.
"We wanted to do some
remodeling" first, said Lillian
Mays, whose son, Kirk, owns
the Mays Building. "I'd like to
see a whole lot more restau-
rants in that area."
Nearby East Reynolds
Street restaurants include Al-
legro Cafe, The Corner Store
and Joey's Place, which
opened in September.


All four establishments co-
operate, borrowing ice or oth-
er commodities from one an-
other when needed, Jean
Hayes said.
"Not only are we all doing
business here, we're good
neighbors together," she said.
"I think that's unique for to-
day."
Despite the sagging econo-
my, "Our business has been
increasing on a weekly basis,"
Hayes said. "We anticipate
that within the next three
months, we'll be open in the
evenings, especially Thurs-
day, Friday, Saturday, and,
possibly, Sunday afternoons,"
she said.
The restaurant's name was
inspired by Rhonda's
13-year-old daughter, Savan-
nah. Plus, adds Jean, "Our
favorite place to go is Savan-
nah, Ga."

It's the highest
honor that Girl
Scouts can receive.
GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Since June,
three members of a neigh-
borhood troop have received
the highest honor possible
from the Girl Scouts of Amer-
ica.
Cait-lyn Biggs, Rebecca
Kjeer and Marissa Harrer,
members of Troop 1178, were
recipients of the Gold Award.
The three were the only Gold
Award winners in the troop's
11-year history, said troop
leader Mar Harrer, the mother
of Marissa.
"Two of the Gold Award
winners [Kjeer and Marissa
Harrer] have been with the
troop since it first started," she
said.
Kjeer, 19 and Marissa Har-
rer, 18, are 2008 Plant City High
graduates who are in their first
year in college.
Biggs, 18, graduated last year
from Durant High School and
works in Springhead Elemen-
tary's after school K-5 pro-
gram.
Girl Scouts have to complete
a community service project to
earn a Gold Award.

ceived their Gold Awards in

Rebecca Kjeer, left, and Cait-lyn Biggs restored a pet cemetery in
Pinellas County to earn the Gold Awards.


December, collaborated on
the restoration of a pet ceme-
tery in Pinellas County.
Harrer, who received her
Gold Award in June, created a
tutoring program at Bryan,
Knights and Wilson elementa-
ry schools as her community
service project. Plant City
High's National Honor Society
has taken over the program,
offering after school tutoring
three days a week.
"The .volunteers help the
younger students with their
homework assignments, teach
them the best way to study and
learn. And how to be better all
around students," Harrer said.


The Gold Award was "a cul-
mination of a lot of work for all
of them," Mar Harrer said. The
award is similar in prestige and
honor as Eagle Scout in Boy
Scouting. Kjeer and Harrer
were also recipients of the Girl
Scouts' Bronze and Silver
awards. Biggs joined the troop
about four years ago, giving
her enough time to earn badg-
es required for pursue the
Gold.
All three of the scouts en-
joyed the challenge.
"I felt very accomplished,"
Harrer said. "Pursuing the

Gold Award was very time con-
suming but worth every min-
ute of it. Scouting, in general,
has solidified my morals, in-
spired me to be a better person
and has given me a bright
future. I have also made many
friends through scouting."
Harrer attends Flagler Col-
lege in St. Augustine, where
she is studying deaf and ele-
mentary education.
Kjeer said she got the idea
for the restoration of a pet
cemetery from the Humane
Society in Pinellas. The society
owns the cemetery.
"We cleaned the place up.
We painted the walls; replaced
wooden fencing and rails and
made it sparkle," Kjeer said.
Her parents, Lorrie and
Todd Kjeer, helped the two
Girl Scouts with some financial
.assistance. The Humane Soci-
ety is continuing the ceme-
tery's restoration.
Kjeer is studying art at Flori-
da Gulf Coast University in
Fort Myers.
Mar Harrer said she had a
lot of help keeping Troop 1178
busy and, on the go since its
creation.
"Troop co-leaders Selena
Brewster and Cindy Sardin
have been very involved in the

workshop of the new year is
scheduled for 6:15 p.m. March

regular 7:30 meeting.


success of the troop," Harrer
said. "Selena was with me for
10 years. Cindy and I joined
two troops together six years
ago. We have done a lot of
camping and field trips with
the troop. It's been quite an
eventful ride."
Susan Barnes, a spokes-
woman for the Girl Scouts of
West Central Florida, said
about 30 to 40 scouts in the
eight-county area win Gold
Awards each year.
"The award is based on
leadership, community ser-
vice, career planning and per-
sonal development." she said.
"The Gold Award is a spring-
board for the girls as they seek
continued education, a career,
start a family or other respon-
sibilities in life. Scouting, in
general, seeks to build cour-
age, confidence and character
in all our members."
For information about Girl
Scouts, call (813) 281-4475.
The three won their awards
in the final year of Troop 1178's
operation, at least under its
current charter. The troop has
ceased to operate because the
girls in the troops graduated
high school and new ones
didn't join. Harrer said the
troop number will be retired
this year and given to another
group sometime in the future.

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


One hour is allotted for the
workshop on amendments to
the comprehensive plan.

and previous meeting agen-
das, go to .the city Web site,

weight loss program designed
for the individual.
The ribbon-cutting and
grand opening will be at Al-
exander Crossing, 605 E. Al-
exander St., at the former
home of Bell Chevrolet, from
10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Feb. 11.
"Through my experience in
internal medicine, dietary con-
cerns, weight management
and the consequences of being
overweight, I felt that a weight
loss center would provide a
necessary and needed addi-
tion to the health care in this
area," Richter said.
Richter was born in Plant
City, trained as a pharmacist at
the University of Florida, re-
ceived his medical degree in
Seville, Spain, and interned in
internal medicine at Franklin
Square Hospital in Baltimore.
"We are ready to help pa-
tients who are serious about
weight loss," Richter said.
"Shedding unnecessary weight
can reduce heart problems,
prevent or control diabetes,
extend your life and in general
make a person feel better.
What makes this program bet-


ter than the rest is a combina-
tion of factors can be used to
individualize treatment for
each patient we see. The pro-
gram also includes a specialist
available for behavior modifi-
cation classes to help people
overcome food addiction and
compulsive overeating."
Visitors at the grand open-
ing will be provided with in-
formation about available
weight loss programs. Samples
of drinks, energy bars, dietary
shakes and puddings will be
available.
Physicians Weight Loss
Centers, based in Akron, Ohio,
has locations in a dozen
states. The closest location is
currently in Tampa.
Richter said he will main-
tain his practice at 2007 W.
Reynolds St. The phone num-
ber at his weight loss clinic is

Comic Relief From
Seminole Fan, Gilligan
It wasn't all business at the
Jan. 22 Greater Plant City
Chamber of Commerce's 27th
annual Chairman's Banquet.
The emcee, City Commis-
sioner Dan Raulerson, a Flori-
da State University graduate,
gave a reluctant nod to the


archrival Florida Gators to
start the program. The Semi-
nole fan said it "troubled the
depths of my soul," as he let
out a "Go Gators," in acknowl-
edgement of UF's national
football championship.
Raulerson wasn't the only
comic relief of the night. The
evening concluded with a vid-
eo produced by Al Berry based
on the old "Gilligan's Island"
TV show. The video featured
local chamber of commerce
officials in the lead roles, in-
cluding Charles Harris as the
bumbling Gilligan, Doug
Gibbs as Jonas "The Skipper"
Grumby, Ed Verner as "Profes-
sor" Roy Hinkley, Jennifer
Closshey as movie star Ginger
Grant, Kerrie Gafford as Kan-
sas farm girl Mary Ann Sum-
mers, and Bruce Rodwell and
Gail Lyons as millionaire
Thurston Howell III and his
wife Eunice "Lovey" Went-
worth Howell.
The story plot involved a
boat washed up on the shores
of Walden Lake, and scenes
were shot at Dinosaur World
and outside the ark-like build-
ing at Forbes Road and In-
terstate 4.
We can't recall if they were
rescued or stranded in the
end.

is scheduled to
play East Bay.
ByDAREKSHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The Durant
Cougars, looking to make the
state girls basketball playoffs
for the first time since 2004,
were the No. 3 seed for the
District 6A-8 tournament at
Plant City High.
Durant played Riverview on
Tuesday, and assuming the
Cougars won, will have the
expected task Friday of having
to knock off Sarasota River-
view with a playoff berth at
stake.
Results of Tuesday's game at
Raider gym were not available
at press time.
Plant City entered as the No.

Outside vendors are welcome to
participate. Strawberry Square,
off Boot Bay Road south of
Interstate 4, is a community of


5 seed and was set to play East
Bay on Tuesday. The Indians
drew the fourth seed although
both teams went 5-7 in district
play, and split their head-to-
head meetings.
Tuesday's winner has a
tough task Friday, going up
against top seed Sarasota. The
Sailors went undefeated in dis-
trict play.
Durant is on the other side
of the bracket and was expec-
ted to roll in its Tuesday open-
er against Riverview, a team
the Cougars handily defeated
twice. If Durant won, it plays 6
p.m. Friday against the Saraso-
ta Riverview-Lakeland winner.
In all likelihood that means
the Cougars will have to knock

Boundary Changes Talk Draws 350


New high school
creates a problem
for some families.
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The addition of
Strawberry Crest High School
will definitely be welcomed as
all east Hillsborough schools
are operating over capacity.
The drawing of boundary
lines to accommodate the new
school, however, has created a
ruckus for some families who
will be affected directly by the
change.
"The boundaries are still un-
der review," said Steven D.
Ayers, the school district's di-
rector of community and par-
ent relations. "Any comments
and requests will be presented
to the school board Feb. 10 for
their consideration."
About 350 parents, students
and teachers attended a Jan.
26 meeting at Tomlin Middle
School to discuss boundary


changes needed with the addi-
tion of Strawberry Crest.
Durant, Armwood, and
Plant City high schools are
exceeding capacity, with Plant
City at 120 percent, Ayers said.
Strawberry Crest High
School, under construction
near Interstate 4 and McIntosh
Road, off Joe Newsome Road,
will open in August. During the
first year, the school will not
have a senior class. At the
beginning of the 2010-11
school year, after the senior
class is added, Strawberry
Crest expects to have 1,602
students.
"In August, when Strawber-
ry Crest opens, Armwood High
will be at 75 percent capacity,"
Ayers said. "Durant will be at
77 percent and Plant City at 88
percent."
Barbara Knox, a teacher at
Burney Elementary, has a
daughter at Tomlin Middle
School Who was expecting to
attend Durant High School,
where her sister graduated.

Parents, students and teachers discuss boundary changes necessi-
tated by the fall opening of Strawberry Crest High School.


The addition of Strawberry
Crest to the mix has changed
that.
"We are curious to see
which school she will attend,"
-Knox said. "I think she will be
happy to go to a brand new
school, but I'm sure some of
her friends she goes to school
with nowwill go on to a differ-
ent high school."
Howard Randolph said he
has children attending Durant


High School who would be
forced by the proposed
boundaries to attend Plant
City High.
"These two schools are ri-
vals," Randolph said. "It won't
be easy to change from one
school to another. I think you
should leave the attending stu-
dents alone."
Randolph's comments re-
ceived a round of applause.
Joe Weaver, an Armwood


parent, said he lives so close to
the border between Armwood
and the new high school, he
can't tell from the county
maps which school his chil-
dren will attend.
"The boundary maps they
published aren't legible,"
Weaver said. "And I like Arm-
wood. I know what that school
is like. I don't want them to
change, even if I have to drive
them there myself."
Ayers said some students
will be able to stay in their
school rather than abide by the
new boundaries. But they will
have to make that request to
the school district. There is
also a rule that says if a student
attends a school outside the
normal-boundaries, no school
bus transportation will be pro-
vided.
Maps of the proposed
boundaries are at http://class
size.mysdhc.org.

Chamber Members Urged To Step Up


New leader Ed
Verner is installed
Jan. 22.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.comn
PLANT CITY The new chair-
man of the Greater Plant City
Chamber of Commerce called
on members to volunteer their
time to help the organization
weather economic uncertainty
in the coming year.
Ed Verner, whose business
interests include the Lee
Building in downtown Plant
City and part ownership of
Tampa's Dallas Bull nightclub,
said the chamber needs help
to maintain its 700 members
as companies seek to make
cutbacks. Some companies
may need convincing that
chamber of commerce mem-
bership is .a worthwhile in-
vestment, he said.
Verner said Plant City has a
wonderful spirit of stepping up.
to help in times of need.
"There's nothing more pow-
erful than the heart of a volun-
teer because they give with
passion," he said at the 27th
annual chairman's banquet.
"You are part of the reason it
works," he said.

Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce chairman Ed Verner,

Verner took the gavel Jan. 22
from Paul Hackney. He told
the outgoing chairman, "Your
shoes are too big for me to fill."
In his farewell address,
Hackney said he appreciated
his term as chairman, and said
he saw the American dream
come true for many people
who started their own busi-
nesses in the last year. He
thanked chamber President
Marion Smith and her staff for
their hard work, and his wife


and his boss at Sunshine State
Federal and Savings Loan As-
sociation for tolerating the
many hours he spent on
chamber of commerce busi-
ness in 2008.
Awards presented during
the evening included the
chairman's award for out-
standing service, which went
to Tom Daramus, who Hack-
ney called a tireless worker at
his church and chamber spe-
cial events. "They do the right


things because it's the right
thing to do," Hackney said of
chamber volunteers such as
Daramus.
Daramus said he appreciat-
ed the opportunity to serve.
"It's just been great being a
part of Plant City. I just enjoy
working with all the people,"
he said.
The ambassador of the year
award went to Jodi Smith, phy-
sician development specialist
at South Florida Baptist Hospi-
tal and community leader.
Ambassadors are the public
relations committee for the
chamber and help ensure that
members are aware of the
chamber's services.
Smith has won the award
three years in a row. She also
won in 2004.
She followed up on Jan. 28
by collecting another honor:
Her ambassador team won the
chamber's team of the year
honors for 2008. Her team also
won in 2005.
"I'm thrilled. This is so excit-
ing," she said of her team's
award. Mike Ardent is her
team co-leader.
Other officers installed Jan.
22 included Charles Harris of
Holiday Inn Express and
Suites, chairman-elect; Hack-


ney, immediate past chair-
man; Matt Buzza of Sunshine
State Federal Saving and Loan,
treasurer; Lee Williams, Fel-
ton's Meat & Produce, com-
munity and government af-
fairs division chairman; Gail
Lyons of Regions Bank, grow-
ing businesses division chair-
woman; Kerrie Gafford of Wal-
Mart, membership division
chairwoman; and Doug Drig-
gers of Tampa Electric Co.,
economic development divi-
sion chairman.
Directors include Al Berry,
Rick Bunnell, Michael Camer-
on, Jimmy Carapezza, Jennifer
Closshey, Hugh Gramling,
Nate Kilton, Rick Lott, Steve
Nierman, Gary Pike, Bruce
Rodwell, Jim Scott and Brian
West.
Past chamber chairmen
who attended the banquet
were recognized, including
Don Walden, 1980; Hal Brewer,
1985; Marion Smith, 1988;
Floyd Hall, 1989, Danny
Wilkes, 1994 and 1999; Bob

A Landmark Victory For Durant


Cougars beat
state-ranked
Sarasota Riverview.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY It has been a
tremendous season for Durant
High in boys basketball, but
until last week, the Cougars
had not recorded a landmark
victory.
That changed when the
Cougars came away from Sara-
sota Riverview with a 53-51 win
- Durant's first road defeat of
a state-ranked team in six
years.
"It was one of the best
games I've been blessed to be
a part of," said Durant head
coach Jeff Shotwell, whose
team improved to 17-4 with

Sarasota Riverview quickly
erased a six-point deficit at the
start of the fourth quarter, after
Durant had outscored the
Rams 17-6 in the third. It was
close the rest of the way, but
the Cougars prevailed.
Durant will be the No. 2
seed for the upcoming District
6A-8 tournament. The Cougars
had a chance at the top spot
and a first-round bye but lost
52-44 Friday to Lakeland, so
Lakeland gets the No. 1 seed.
That means Durant's quest
for the playoffs will likely re-
quire another victory against
Sarasota Riverview. Durant,

(both losses to Lakeland),

seed Riverview. Assuming a

In the other half of the

LEAVING
A LASTING
IMPRESSION
While a funeral may focus the
thoughts of mourners on the deceased,
its most important function is to help
the assembled survivors better come
to grips with their loss. In essence, a
funeral brings the living face to face
with the reality of death and helps
them to accept its finality. At the.same
time, a funeral provides a climate of
mourning that enables grief-stricken
individuals to gather with others and
express their sorrows in an accepting
and supportive environment. With
all this in mind, families who might
not see the value of a service, or who
desire a private service, might want to
consider the needs of others to express
their own grief and sense of loss.
Regardless of the final disposition,
whether it is burial or cremation,
funerals serve an important
purpose. A funeral is similar to
other ceremonies in our lives. Like
a graduation ceremony, a wedding, a
baptism and a bar mitzvah, a funeral
is a rite of passage by which we
recognize an important event that
distinguishes our lives. For more
information about arranging funeral
services for a loved one, please call

dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The Plant City
and Durant wrestling teams
are among the field of nine
schools on hand for the Dis-
trict 3A-5 meet, set to unfold
Saturday at East Bay High
School.
Wrestlers from both teams
hope to finish in the top four of
their weight class, the result
needed in order to continue
one's season onto the regional
level.
Durant harbors hopes of a
team championship.
"I think Bloomingdale's very
strong, and Alonso's good, too.
I think between us three it will
be a good battle for first place,"
Durant head coach Dennis
Kitko said. "If we win it this
year, it will be a pretty good
accomplishment."
The Cougars have won the
last two district champion-
ships. This year's squad might
be a tad below that level, how-
ever Kitko said the past few
weeks have seen Durant come
together. One factor has been


moving several wrestlers up or
down in weight class to get the
lineup at its most functional.
No tinkering has been re-
quired for Nick Hadick, who
brings a 36-3 record into the
district meet. Alex Hamm (112
pounds) has also been out-
standing, with a 34-4 mark
-heading into last weekend's
Western Conference event.
Others with strong records
include T.J. Davis (145 pounds)
and a pair of emerging per-
formers, senior Reggie Beal
and Titus Horner. Beal
dropped two classes, from 171
pounds at the beginning of the
season to 152.
Durant is 22-8 in dual
matches but, as Kitko points
out, the schedule has been
tough.
"If we stayed local, we'd
have a lot better record. I'd say
our schedule is as tough as
Brandon's," he said. All eight
losses were to schools ranked
in Florida's top 16 as rated by
floridakids.us.
Durant participated in tour-
naments in Oviedo, Orlando,


Tarpon Springs and Lake City.
Plant City did well recently
in the Ippolito Tournament at
Brandon High,' finishing 13th
out of 29 schools.
Three Raiders made it to the
placement round, meaning a
top-six finish inside their
weight class: Travis Vollick
(fourth, 189 pounds), William
Joyce (fifth, 103) and Josh
Creamer (fifth, 112). Making
the top-six result so impressive
was the fact it came against a
larger field than most tour-
neys.
Vollick had to win four
matches just to get to the
semifinals, which put his re-
cord to 23-2. Creamer went 5-1
on the day to improve his mark
to 27-8, and Joyce won four
matches after losing his open-
er.
The Ippolito was held Jan.
24 at Brandon High School.
The host Eagles were the over-
all winners.
Saturday's district event
starts at 11 a.m. with the finals
tentatively set to begin at 5
p.m.

PLANT CITY It took a half
for their nerves to settle, but
once that happened the Du-
rant boys soccer team
cruised into the 6A playoffs.
Durant defeated Plant City
5-0 in the Jan. 28 District 6A-8
tournament semifinals, as-
suring a spot into the post-
season regardless of the re-
sult in the championship
game.
The Cougars were set to
face East Bay last Friday. The
winner will be at home on
Thursday as the boys soccer
playoffs begin, while the loser
will be travelling to play ei-
ther Mitchell or Gaither
Seeded No. 1 thanks to a
perfect district mark, Durant
was given a good challenge
by the Raiders. It was 0-0 at
the half. But an early goal
after intermission started the
Cougars on their way and
started Cecil Clarke on a hat


trick.
"We were nervous in the
first half; we were tight," Du-
rant head coach Jamin Hol-
lingsworth said. "But once we
got that first one, the pres-
sure was off and the guys
were on their way."
Clarke scored the first two
goals. Billy Fanning made it
3-0, and Clarke completed
the hat trick after that.
Fanning added a second
goal.
The district tourney was
played at Sarasota High
School, but both Sarasota
schools were gone early.
Plant City did the honors in
the first round, defeating Sar-
asota Riverview 2-0 to set up
the match with Durant.
East Bay eliminated the
hosts 3-2 in overtime in the
other semifinal.
Durant's girls saw their
playoff journey end quickly
with a 1-0 loss to Alonso in
the first round last Thursday.

Cognitive
Decline & Blood
Pressure
A history of hypertension (high blood
pressure) may raise the risk of mild
cognitive decline. A .recent study
followed over 900 adults age 65 and
older. none of which had any cognitive
impairment at the start. After 5 years,
about one third of participants developed
either amnestic mild cognitive decline'
(involving memory) or non-amnestic
(involving diminished reasoning and
judgement, language, visual spatial
problems). Those with a. history of
hypertension had a 40% greater risk
of ail types of impairment and 70%
increased risk of non-amnestic mild
cognitive impairment in particular.
