Detour Leads To Chance Meeting With Famous Cook's Sons


PLANT CITY -A detour
brought a very pleasant sur-
prise to Jean Ann Davenport of
Plant City. Her family was on
the way home from a trip to
North Carolina and decided at
the last minute to take a de-
tour to Savannah, Ga., to visit
Paula Deen's restaurant.
The eatery was all booked
up, so Davenport went into
the gift shop, and to her sur-
prise, in walked the celebrity
chefs sons, Jamie and Bobby,
of the cooking show "Road
Tasted."
"Nobody knew who they
were at first until I asked the
clerk to take a picture with
them. They were happy to
oblige, and we chatted about
Plant City's Strawberry Festi-
val, and yes, they have heard
about our festival," she said.
When Davenport left, cam-
eras were flashing and every-
one was lining up for auto-
graphs.
"It made my trip," said
Davenport, who is office man-
ager of Dental Associates at
Walden Woods in Plant City
and lives in Walden Lake with
her husband and two sons.

[FROM YOU]


PLANT CITY When Smith-
field Foods announced
on Feb. 17 plans to close
the company's local meat-
packing plant, it was the
most read story of the day
on TBO.com. The article on
the plant's Sept. 1 closing
drew almost 200 comments
from readers. The city's larg-
est private employer, the
plant off Turkey Creek Road
has provided jobs for genera-
tions and employs 760 work-
ers.
The Plant City factory was
one of six Smithfield is clos-
ing nationwide as it consoli-


dates its operations. The
plant, opened in 1967 by
Tampa-based Lykes Bros.,
was purchased by Smithfield
in 1996.
To review the complete
story, read more comments
or leave your own, go to
Plantcity.tbo.com and search
for "Smithfield Cuts."
Here is a sampling of
some of the online reader
comments:

God help us all. When un-
employment is up, so is the
crime rate. My hope is we all do
our heartfelt best to appreciate
and empathize with what is


happening to our society and
follow through with what we
know is right.
Posted by Oyvey

My brother in law works there. I
do not know what he is going to
do. All he did there was pack
meat. Now what in the world is
he going to do?
-Posted by Bayinlcfl

Not only are employees af-
fected, there are a lot of local
businesses that supply Smith-
field with products used in the
plant. Everyone will be affected
by this closure. Sad day.
Posted by lamericangirl

I would think the employees
deserve an explanation for the


disruption of their lives and I'm
curious of all the plants, why
was Plant City chosen for elim-
ination?
Posted by Inquisitive12

Politics aside, the plant clos-
ing is a sign of the times. It's
not the first this year, and I'm
certain it won't be the'last.
Businesses consolidate every-
day. They do this to survive. The
operation at Plant City was on
the short end of the stick. It's
not good, it's not nice, but stuff
happens. I do feel very sorry for
all the folks who have to move
on, and find another job. My son
has been looking, and he has
experience, and there's just
nothing out there. Good luck
people, you're going to need it.
Posted by Bluejean53

May God bless these families


and lead them in the right direc-
tion. Our prayers are with you.
Posted by Servantofjc777

This is the worst news I have
received since 1986 when my
grandfather died. He was vice
president at the plant for many
years. He would take me to
work with him every once in
awhile. I will pray and wish
everyone laid off the best of
luck. I thank God everyday I still
have my job and pray for those
that have lost theirs.
Posted by DMSPC

Sad to hear that as a result of
the plant's closing, area folks
will lose their jobs. I remember
when Lykes operated out of that
facility. Does anyone else re-
member field trips to the plant?
I wish everyone well.

"Holy mackerel, I was over-
whelmed," said her husband,
recognized for his volunteer
work for everything from area
hospitals to the Florida Straw-
berry Festival to the Greater
Plant City Chamber of Com-
merce.
The Rodwells came here in
1996 from Pennsylvania,
where, for three decades,
Bruce was a produce buyer for
Agway. "I came down here to
set up a strawberry operation,"
which he did for seven years.


In keeping with tradition surrounding the award.
the honoree was kept in the dark until the an-
nouncement was made before the Feb. 18 lun-
cheon crowd of about 200 at the Red Rose Inn
and Suites' Red Rose Ballroom.


Not only was the honor a
surprise to Rodwell, so were
many of the guests. The Rod-
wells' daughters, Brenda La-
Crosse of Rochester, N.Y., and
Linda Hackler of Myrtle Beach,
S.C., were in the crowd.
Their father was curious
where they had been hiding
out, and he inquired after the
luncheon.
"We were at the Holiday Inn


last night," said Linda, who
had flown to Tampa three days
earlier.
At a stoplight en route to the
luncheon, the daughters found
themselves in dad's sight but
responded quickly, ducking
and avoiding detection.

4-H Club Will Be Ready

Upcoming shows offer members an opportunity to prepare for more stringent competitions.

Jacob is entering an Asian breed in
the poultry show, a ball of fluff and
feathers called a black cochin.

By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY For half of his
young life, Jacob Bumette
has been a 4-H Club mem-
ber, following the lead of both
older siblings.
His mother, Rhonda Burnette,
a longtime 4-H leader, likes to say
10-year-old Jacob was born into
the club.
The Knights Elementary fifth-
grader is among scores of Hills-
borough County 4-H Club mem-
bers entering animals into what
are among the Florida Strawberry
Festival's lesser-known youth
shows for poultry and rabbits.
Jacob is entering the allowable
maximum of three chickens in
the poultry show, including an
exotic Asian breed, the black co-
chin, a ball of fluff and feathers he
said is a guaranteed first-place
winner every time. He has
brought home blue ribbons in the
past with the breed, he said.
Another exotic he is entering, a
frizzle, is a popular bantam chick-
en distinguished by its unique
feathers. "Their feathers are
curved backwards," Jacob said,
"They're pretty cool."
In the youth rabbit show, his
solo entry is in the fancy class, a
mini lop that grabbed Jacob's
attention after a friend showed
one a couple of years back. "I
liked the kind of bunny and the
way it looks," he said of the breed
known for its distinctive floppy
ears.
This is a big time of year for
area youngsters who raise farm
animals, with the festival offering

Jacob makes sure he gets the right
ingredients and proportions when he is
feeding so the animals don't pick out
just their favorite parts.

Jacob works with his pig Sugar recently. This year, for the first time, Jacob was lucky enough to win a slot through a lottery
that decides which youngsters can enter animals in the swine show, which will take additional time and dedication.


For many 4-H Club members, the


rabbit and poultry shows offer an

early opportunity to prepare for

more stringent competition in the

youth shows for steer and swine.


competitions for critters from
steers to chickens to hogs to
rabbits.
Thomas Sturgis, longtime
agriculture teacher at Durant
High and committee chairman


for the festival's rabbit and
poultry shows, said both are
low-key competitions.
"With the rabbits and chick-
ens, our focus has been to
keep a level of competition,


but keep it really kid-friendly,"
he said. "It's not a real strin-
gent or rigorous competition,"
with about 90 percent of par-
ticipants earning ribbons. "Ev-
erybody has a good time," he

said.
Ribbons also mean cash
awards: $7 for blue, $6 for red
and $5 for white. Best of show
nets $25 extra.
"The neat thing about that is


we pay the kids in cash," Stur-
gis said. "It's a direct reward,
your pat on back right there,"
eliminating the need to hand-
ing the check over to parents
to convert to spending money,
he said.
Additionally, youths want-
ing to sell animals are allowed
to advertise them at the show.
"It's all kids; we don't have
any professional exhibitors in
there," said Sturgis, who has
been associated with the
shows for 15 years and is in his
third year as chairman. "I
think we really have one of the
better shows in the area, with-
out the sometimes cocky atti-
tude other shows have."
He expects 50 rabbits and
100 chickens to be entered in
the 2009 shows at the festival,
which runs Thursday through
March 8. The rabbits and poul-
try are displayed in a tent near
festival Gate 14.
Professional judges brought
in to select entries that best
exemplify the breed's stan-
dards also provide direction. If
there is an issue with any
,animal like ear mites com-
mon among rabbits, for ex-
ample judges offer profes-
sional advice on how to resolve
the problem, Sturgis said.
For many 4-H Club mem-
bers, the, rabbit and poultry
shows offer an early opportu-
nity to prepare for more strin-
gent competition in the youth
shows for steer and swine.
This year for the first time,
Jacob was lucky enough to win
a slot through the lottery that
decides which youngsters can
enter animals in the swine
show. But preparing his young
and growing pig for the show
requires additional time and
dedication beyond what he al-
ready devotes to his small-
animal entries.
"I have to go out and walk
the pig for 30 or 45 minutes"
daily in preparation for the
youth swine show that will be
held on opening night of the
11-day festival. Under Jacob's
care, the pig he named Sugar
'has grown to 252 pounds since
he-got it several months ago
and is well on its way to the
ideal market range of 260 to
280.
"Because I got a good pig,"
Jacob said, he feels Sugar has
the makings of a grand cham-
pion, an honor that will con-
vert to cash in Friday night's
youth swine sale.
He quickly admits he's in
4-H "because it's fun" and,
hopefully, "very profitable."

of Plant City provides plenty of
room for additional animals,
big and small.
When Jacob joined Antioch
Critters 4-H Club five years
ago, he was following in the
footsteps of brother Jarrod,
now 19, and sister Kendall, 21.
Their mother, a 4-H organi-
zational leader for a dozen
years, said all of her children
began showing rabbits and
chickens. Early on, Jacob was
steered toward the black co-
chin breed of chickens be-
cause "We wanted to do some-
thing smaller, a more docile
kind he could handle."
This year, Jacob will have
two entries in the youth steer


show, too.
He's come a long way since
he was too young to join 4-H,
tagging along with older sib-
lings for meetings and assort-
ed activities. Other 4-H par-
ents "used to tease me that he
was the club mascot," his
mother said. "He was always
there."
The shows' chairman knows
firsthand about that youthful
exuberance.
"That's the best part of the
show, seeing those eyes light
up when [they] get trophies or
ribbons," said Sturgis, looking
forward to when his own child
is old enough to join the 4-H
Club.
"Next year my daughter will
be 5, and she'll be showing her
first animal," he said.

wells lived before.
"Bruce was one of my teach-
ers; he taught me the busi-
ness," said Harris Cutler, a
produce dealer who flew down
for the luncheon. "Bruce is a
great personality, and anyone
who ever met him loves him,"
Cutler said as Rodwell was
encouraged to pose for photos
with friends, relatives and the
Florida Strawberry Festival
queen and court.
"I didn't know I was so
important," Rodwell said of
the outpourifig of attention.
"Ever since we landed here,
he's been involved completely
with Plant City," Margaret
Rodwell said.
Area civic clubs and the
Greater Plant City Chamber of
Commerce nominate candi-
. dates for the event organized
by the Kiwanis Club of Plant
City. A committee of represen-
tatives from each of the orga-
nizations selects the winner.
Last year's winner was Fred
Johnson, owner-operator of
Fred's Market Restaurant and
Grandpa Johnson's Barbeque
in Plant City, plus Fred's
Southern Kitchen in Lakeland.
Previous winners of the
award, established in 1960, in-
clude the late City Manager

Strawberry Royalty Gets ABC's Attention


The queen and her
court will be on
"Good Morning
America."
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The Florida
Strawberry Festival queen and
court have again drawn na-
tional attention and will be
profiled in an upcoming televi-
sion spot on ABC..
In 2008, festival queen Kris-
ten Smith and her court mem-
bers were profiled by The New
Yorker magazine. The feature.
article about the Plant City
royalty was written by Anne
Hull, a former Plant City resi-
dent and Pulitzer Prize-win-
ning staff writer for The Wash-
ington Post.
This year, festival queen
Lauren Der and court mem-
bers first maid Sara Beth
Newsome, Megan Cochran,
Joclyn Emerson and Morgan
Feaster are being profiled
by "Good Morning America's"
Saturday feature program in a
bimonthly segment, "Ameri-

can Snapshot." The Plant City
spot is expected to run in late
March or early April.
Queen and court coordina-
tor Sandee Sytsma was noti-


fled of the "Good Morning
America" interest in late Janu-
ary. The show's producers
were inspired by Hull's article
this summer in The New York-


er, which took a nostalgic look
at the queen's pageant and
Plant City, Sytsma said.
"The festival was put in
touch with Jennifer Perone, a


producer at ABC, and we e-
mailed back and forth to set up
the visit," Sytsma said.
Sytsma, Der and court first
met with Perone over dinner
Feb. 16 at the Red Rose Inn and
Suites' difiing room. The festi-
val picked up the tab, Sytsma
said.
"We took that opportunity
to let the girls meet with Jenni-
fer so they could get to know
one another," Sytsma said.
"Before long, they were like old
friends."
Perone is in her fifth year as
a producer with ABC. She said
she soon learned there was
more to Plant City than she
could ever have imagined.
On Feb. 17, Sytsma and Pe-
rone met again with a free-
lance film crew out of Orlando
to tape "points of interest" in
Plant City.
"Between 8 and 11 a.m., we
taped segments at the straw-
berry water tower [off Wilder
Road]; a 'Welcome to Plant
City' sign on a road coming-
into town; a crew of workers
picking strawberries in a near-

Market, where we ate straw-
berry shortcake; and Sister's &
Company 'to see strawberry
jewelry, purses, clothes and
other items," Sytsma said.
The crew also paid a visit to
the Camellia Rose Tea Room
to film its strawberry table-
cloths, tea pots and china piec-
es, and to enjoy its strawberry
tea and strawberry scones.
At 11:30 a.m., Sytsma, Pe-
rone and the camera crew
joined Juju Chang, a New
York-based Emmy Award-win-
ning correspondent for ABC
News. They spent the rest of
the day with Der and her court
members to film them in their
daily routines.
"Our first stop was at the
Plant City High School gym to
interview Megan on the volley-
ball court," Sytsma said. "Me-
gan.and Juju actually played a
little volleyball while we were
there."
From there, they visited Stu-
dio3 Salon, where Morgan
works as a hairdresser. Then
Beef O'Brady's for lunch,
where Emerson works part
time.
The fourth stop was New-
some's home, where she
groomed and walked her steer


Lynwood.
The next stop was at Der's
home, where the crew checked
out her trophies, awards and
festival wardrobe, and then
went outside to visit with her
pet donkey, Leonard, and her
horse Radish.
At 6 p.m., the group went to
Pec and Dub McGinnes' home
for a meal and instructions on
manners. The annual event,
called "Miss Manners Night,"
includes tips for the queen and
court on how to greet strang-
ers, introduce themselves and
others, and shake hands in a
ladylike fashion.
Dub McGinnes, who is a
festival director, later chauf-
feured Chung to Bern's Steak
House in Tampa where she
was to meet with friends. Pe-
rone was taken back to Stu-
dio3, where she got her hair
cut and styled.
Mindy Feaster, Morgan's
mother, who is one of the
owners of the salon, cut Pe-
rone's hair.
"Jennifer was so sweet and
down to earth," Feaster said.
"She was easygoing, easy to
know and a pleasure to be
with. She invited us to visit
with her in New York."
The crew plans to return
during the strawberry festival
to get more footage of Der and
her court members.

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

County Meetings

To Discuss Draft Post-Disaster
Redevelopment Plan


Hillsborough County will hold a series of public meet-
ings to discuss the draft Post-Disaster Redevelopment
Plan which local governments and community organi-
zations have been developing over the past year. This
is a plan that details how the county will redevelop
and return to normal after any major disaster, such as
a hurricane.
Hillsborough County was selected by the Florida
Department of Community Affairs to be one of five
pilot communities in the state to create a long-term
post-disaster redevelopment plan (PDRP). The PDRP
is a requirement for all coastal communities and
municipalities.
The draft Plan covers the subjects of health and social
services; housing; land use; infrastructure; environ-
mental restoration; economic redevelopment; financial
administration; and public outreach. The final Plan


will be submitted for approval by the County Com-
mission later this year.
At these meetings, residents will be able to hear
about the Plan, look at the draft components, and
make comments.
For more information about this project, go to the
County's website at www.hillsboroughcounty.org,
click on the "A-Z Index" link and then select "Post-
Disaster Redevelopment Plan."

All meeting facilities are ADA compliant. Any ad-
ditional necessary accommodations will be provided
with a 48-hour notice.
Please attend, we welcome your input. For more -
information, please call the Hazard Mitigation Sec-
tion, Planning & Growth Management Department,
at 272-5600.

County Closes
Building Services Office
PLANT CITY Hillsborough
County is closing its local
Building Services Division of-.
fice March 16.
-The elimination of the office

turn in construction activity,"
the county said.
Customers can visit the
Building Services Division's
South County office at 410 30th
St. S.E., Ruskin, or its main

Symptoms of
A Herniated Disc
The bones of the spine are cushioned
by small, spongy discs. Stress or
injury can cause a herniated disc,
a disc that ruptures or bulges and
presses on the nerves in the spine.
Symptoms include back pain that
may radiate down the leg, numbness
or tingling in the legs, pain that feels
better with rest and worse with activity
and pain that intensifies when you sit,
drive, lean forward, cough or sneeze.-
Symptoms usually get better in a few
weeks-or months. If pain isn't severe,
light activity may help. Also, icing the
area for 10-15 minutes, 3 times a day
may ease pain. Applying heat relieves
pain for some people, but wait 2-3
days after the injury to use it.

The 30-day promotion was
launched Feb. 18.
Del Mar's manager, Noelle
Poole, said he is confident of a
positive response, helping to
restock the food bank shelves
while also getting an opportu-
nity to sample the cuisine at
the restaurant that opened in
July.
Economic conditions have
placed a burden on food
banks, and a supply of canned
goods is vital to the organiza-
tions, said Judy Reynolds of
United Food Bank. From 2007
to 2008, the demand for food
jumped 40 percent.
Del Mar's, 2803 James L.
Redman Parkway, is in front of
Lowe's Home Improvement

Free Show Planned
In Lieu Of Hough
PLANT CITY The Florida
Strawberry Festival will offer a
free show to replace the can-
celed March 8 performance of
singer and dancer Julianne
Hough.
The festival scrambled to
find a new act after Hough's
show was canceled recently
due to scheduling problems.
The replacement will include
singer and songwriter Trent
Tomlinson; a new group, Love
and Theft; and Chad Brock
and Killer Beaz, from country


radio station WQYK 99.5 FM's
morning show.
Brock, best known perhaps
in this market for his role on
the morning show, has also
produced seven singles on the
Billboard country music
charts, including the No. 1 hit
"Yes!" and the top 5 "Ordinary
Life." Fairly new to the Tampa
Bay morning show scene, Kill-
er Beaz has 27 years in stage,
television, radio and touring.
He will perform a comedy rou-
tine.
General admission seating
for the 3 p.m. show is free with
paid gate admission.
Hough, a two-time winner
of "Dancing with the Stars,"
canceled her 3:30 p.m. show
due to what was termed an
"unavoidable scheduling
change." The festival is paying
refunds for fans who bought
reserved seats, $10 and $15, for
Hough's show.

tival at (813) 752-9194 or go to

Ducks Leader Has Local Ties


He has been
working with the
conservation group
since 1983.
By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Former Plant
City resident John R. Pope is
poised to be elected president
of Ducks Unlimited when the
volunteer-based conservation
organization holds its national
convention in Denver in May.
A University of Florida grad-
uate, Pope, 61, lives in Jackson-
ville and works as a financial
advisor with Raymond James
Financial Services.
Born in Tampa, Pope and
his family moved to Plant City
when he was a child. He relo-
cated to Jacksonville in 1976
where, in 1983, he began his
long affiliation with Ducks Un-
limited.
He is now the organization's
first vice president, the post
used to groom the organiza-
tion's president-elect. The
council of state trustees and

He was born in
F .. Tampa and lived
in Plant City when
he was younger.
national delegates of Ducks
Unlimited traditionally elects
and installs the organization's
senior vice president as presi-
dent during its annual conven-
tion.
"If everything goes accord-
ing to plan, I'll be the 40th
president of Ducks Unlimit-
ed," Pope said of the organiza-
tion, which has a long history.
"It was founded in 1937,"
Pope said. "A group of sports-
men and conservationists
were concerned about the de-
cline in waterfowl populations
in that period of the Dust Bowl
and worldwide drought and
depression," he said. "That
group of concerned sportsmen
on both sides of the U.S. and
Canadian'borders got together
and helped form this alliance
we have today."
Today, the Memphis, Tenn.-
based group with its mission of


habitat conservation has near-
ly 800,000 members in the
United States, Canada and
Mexico. As of 2008, the grass-
roots organization's efforts
had conserved 12.2 million
acres in North America.
Before being elected senior
vice president in 2007, Pope
served Ducks Unlimited as re-
gional vice president for the
South Atlantic Flyway, was the
organization's Florida chair-
man, state sponsor chairman,
district chairman, Jacksonville
area chairman and a Jackson-
ville committee member.
"And I've always been in-
volved with fundraising at the
grassroots level," he added.
Despite his lengthy associa-
tion with Ducks Unlimited,
Pope said that a half-dozen
years ago he would have never
dreamed of rising to the ranks
of president.
"I look forward to it; it's
going to be an exciting time,"
Pope said.

Title Gives Them A Reason To Cheer

Plant City High School cheerleaders beat out 23 other squads to win the conference competition.

"Preparing for the competition we had two-a-day practices, be-
fore and after school, for two weeks," Jessica Bullard said.

PLANT CITY The Plant City
High School cheerleaders won
the Western Conference cheer
competition, outscoring 23
other schools in the process, to
take their first title in school
history.
The Plant City team out-
paced several strong perennial
contenders to win the champi-
onship.
Newsome High School fin-
ished second to Plant City, and
Sickles and Durant high
schools tied for third place.
"I'm so excited about the
win I can't believe it," Plant
City cheerleading coach Gin-
ger Parks said. "We wanted to
do well, but the girls nailed two
routines in a row and won it
all. It's like an impossible
dream come true."
Cheerleader Jessica Bullard,
a 17-year-old junior, said she
knew her team could get high
scores during the Feb. 6 com-
petition.
"Preparing for the competi-
tion we had two-a-day practic-

were all screaming and hugging each other and jumping around. I
couldn't believe it. We are the Western Conference champions."


es, before and after school, for
two weeks," Bullard said. "On
the day before the competition
we had a demonstration prac-
tice just as school let out. We
fumbled and tumbled through
the practice and kind of made
a mess of it."
Parks and her assistant
coach, Cassie Barrow, thought
the practice that was wit-
nessed by students as they
exited the school would be a
good experience for the cheer-
leading team leading to the
competition at Armwood.


"Going into Armwood High
School auditorium with over
1,000 people screaming at the
top of their lungs can be dis-
tracting," Parks said. "I wanted
them to be ready."
They didn't look ready at
that last practice session, but
Bullard said she and her team-
mates weren't deterred.
"I told our coaches that
when we were on the mats and
the adrenaline started pump-
ing we would be ready," Bul-

BEST CHEERS

Continued From Page 25

As it turned out they were,
but it wasn't that simple with
23 other teams vying for the
title.
"On Friday [Feb. 6] we were
looking for any edge we could
get," Parks said.
Parks, a 1987 Plant City High
School graduate and Universi-
ty of South Florida graduate, is
in her first year as cheerleading
coach at the school. She teach-
es English I and Honors Eng-
lish II.
Barrow, a 2001 graduate of
Royal Palm Beach High School
and University of Central Flor-
ida graduate,, is in her second
year coaching cheerleading at
Plant City High. She teaches
10th grade reading.
A high score in the first
round of competition placed
the Plant City team in the top
10.
"To tell you the truth, I was
just pleased that our team
made the top 10. It was a real
accomplishment," Parks said.
"To think they could pull off
another perfect routine was
not something I really expec-
ted. But they are young
enough and they were excited
enough to think they could do
it again."

The girls won't stop at the Western Conference championship,
though. Now it's on to the March 12 and 13 state championships.


Teams were scored on
sportsmanship, crowd-leading
ability, choreography, syn-
chronization, stunts and toss-
es, tumbling and jumps, pyra-
mids, execution and practical-
ity of skills. In order to make
their team more competitive
with high-ranking programs,
the Raiders added a new pyra-
mid skill.
"In the last week of practice
we worked in a collapsing pyr-
amid and recovery move that
increased our level of difficul-
ty," Parks said. "We worked


hard to get it right, and in the
competition the girls hit it
right on the mark. It was per-
fect."
Parks was hoping to place in
the top three.
"I wasn't able to see all the
competing teams perform, so I
really didn't know what our
team was up against.. I just
knew some teams, like Bloom-
ingdale, Armwood and Du-
rant, had excellent teams."

PLANT CITY A banquet,
parade and more were part of
a festival celebrating black his-
tory.
The sixth annual Black Heri-
tage Festival was staged Feb.
13-14 by Plant City Black Heri-
tage Celebration Inc. "It's all a
team effort," board member
Sharon Moody said.
The festival opened with a
banquet at the Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King Jr. Recreation Cen-
ter.
"The banquet was well at-
tended with over 200 tickets
sold," Moody said. "The enter-
tainment and guest speakers
were well prepared. I was es-
pecially proud to present
awards to several Plant City
residents who have been lead-
ers in our community."
Lillie Mae Jackson, 100, was
hot in attendance but received
a Lifetime Achievement
Award.
Eleanor West received the
Heritage Award. Anna Reitz
was the recipient of the Hu-
manitarian Award, and Jim
McDaniel received the Out-
standing Citizen Award.
Mount Moriah Missionary
Baptist Church and the
Kiwanis Club of Plant City
were also recognized.
Moody took the time to
thank sponsors of the event.
"The city recreation depart-
.ment and the city of Plant City
are an invaluable sponsor for
the black heritage celebra-
tion," Moody said. Master of
ceremonies Steve Wilson in-
troduced the award winners
and provided the benediction
at the close of the banquet
celebration.
On Feb. 14, the celebration
continued with a parade, ven-
dors, games, contests, enter-
tainment and other activities.
"All in all I feel it was a
successful celebration,"
Moody said. "All the vendors
made money. All the visitors
had a good time. And we all
shared in the heritage of the
black community in Plant City
and the continued spirit that
helps us to unite the change."
The celebration is presented
each year as part of Black
History Month.
Plant City Black Heritage
Celebration is guided by board
members including. Moody,

Festival Job Is



A Dream Come True


Paul Davis grew up
in the area and has
fond memories.
By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Few people are
fortunate enough to be living
out their dreams while work-
ing in a position that they love.
Such was the destiny of Paul
Davis, the new general manag-
er of the Florida Strawberry
Festival. Davis, who retired af-
ter 32 years with the Hillsbor-
ough County Sheriffs Office,
said the job offer by the festival
directors was too good to pass
up.
"Some of my earliest child-
hood memories are about the
Florida Strawberry Festival,"
Davis said. "It's a dream come
true to be working here as
manager. I have been in. the
people business for 32 years.
Having the opportunity to
continue working in this com-
munity is very satisfying for
me."
Davis started Dec. 1.
He replaced Patsy Brooks,
who retired June 2 after about
13 years as general manager.
Brooks had been a festival em-
ployee since 1975.
Davis, 53, was born in Tam-
pa and raised in Dover, off
Gallagher Road. He attended
-school at Cork Elementary,
Tomlin Junior High, Plant City
High, Hillsborough Communi-
ty College, the University of
South of Florida and received a
bachelor's degree in criminal
justice at St. Leo University in
2005.
"After high school, my edu-
cation was spread out over a
long period of time," Davis
said. "Working, married with
children and going to college is
a handful."
Davis has been married for
30 years to the former Sheryl
Yates. They have three chil-
dren: Jeremy, 29, who is a
detective with the sheriffs of-
fice; Ashley Galloway, 24; and
their youngest daughter, Mor-
gan, a senior at Plant City High
School. Jeremy and his wife,
Talbitha, have two children,
Madison, 5, and Logan, 3.
Davis retired from the sher-
iffs office after reaching the
rank of colonel.

"All the things that have made the festival a big success are still in
place," says Paul Davis, the new general manager.


"As a sheriffs office employ-
ee, I worked security at the
festival for 30 years," Davis
said. "We were paid by the
festival and would take vaca-
tion from the county during
the festival time. I also worked
security during presidential
visits, two Super Bowls, Gaspa-
rilla, and many events at Tam-
pa Stadium and Raymond
James Stadium. In the later
part of my career, I was head-
ing up a large security force at
all of those events."
During the past five years,
Davis worked without pay as
the head of inside security at
the Strawberry Festival.
Festival association Presi-
dent Gary Boothe said Davis
was hired after a national
search.
"We had 31 applicants from
people with varying degrees of
fair and fair managerial experi-
ence," Boothe said. "It really
was a difficult decision. Many
of the applicants had impres-
sive resumes. But in choosing
Paul, we chose a hard worker


with excellent contacts and a
true love for the community."
Festival director Mike
Sparkman said Davis is a quick
learner.
"Paul started right in the
thick of our busy season,"
Sparkman said. "He has
worked hard to strengthen his
staff while we are gearing up
for the 2009 festival. Paul's
involvement will help make
this a successful event."
Davis said he is proud to be
a part of the festival as general
manager. "But above all, it's a
team effort. All the things that
have made the festival a big
success are still in place. We
have a great staff, an army of
volunteers that work hard ev-.
ery year to make it all possible,
and a volunteer board of direc-
tors that continues to make the
Florida Strawberry Festival
recognized as one of the best
fairs in the country, year after
year."

The new midway
has more rides
for children.

By GEORGE WILKENS
gwilkens@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The hundreds
of thousands of people who
will pass through the Florida
Strawberry Festival gates
over the next 11 days can
expect to find their favorite
foods, rides, exhibits and en-
tertainment. Some may note
additions and improve-
ments.
For starters, there's a new
midway operator for the fes-
tival, said Paul Davis, general
manager of the event that
opens at 10 a.m. Thursday.
Belle City Amusements, a
third-generation family busi-
ness, will provide the rides.
"They're not
strangers to
this place," Da- The best
vis said.
"They've had perhaps
rides in our no incre
event for many
years. This is price ofc
just the first or str
year they're
taking over the short
whole mid-
way."
The Deltona-based com-
pany will offer an expanded
selection of rides for the festi-
val's Kiddie Corral.
"We've expanded our kid-
die rides," moving the most
onto paved areas to make it
easily accessible with baby
strollers. "Now you don't
have to take your small chil-
dren out into the real crowd-
ed midway," Davis said.
The Kiddie Corral is at the
east end of the festival
grounds and most easily ac-
cessed through Gate No. 5 at
the comer of Lemon and
Reynolds streets.
Additionally, the TECO
Livestock Arena and CF In-
dustries Ag tents have been
moved to the northwest cor-
ner of the festival grounds,
near the midway. The mid-
way has been redesigned to
provide a buffer between the
Tnoisier thrill rides and those


large tents housing the youth
livestock shows and sales.
"The new ride owners real-
ly worked hard to work that
out, and I think they've done
as much as they can to get
the real loud rides away from
the tent," Davis said.
"There's a lot of new things
to see. We have 60 to 70 new
vendors, vendors who have
not been here before," Davis
added.
Strawberry Festival associ-
ation president Gary Boothe
said another improvement
this year is the 'addition of
overhead lighting throughout
the festival grounds.
The best news is, perhaps,
there is no increase in the
price of admission or
strawberry shortcake.
"We worked really hard to
keep the price the same as it
was last year," Davis said,
adding that
there is much
iews is, free entertain-
ment scheduled
there iS throughout the
e in the festival.
Gate admis-
Imission sion tickets sell
wberry for $8 in ad-
vance for ages
ake. 13 and older
and $4 for ages
6 to 12. Advance
tickets are available through
today at the festival ticket
office or through the end of
the festival at participating
Sweetbay Supermarkets.
Admission at the gate will
be $10 and $5, respectively.
Children 5 and younger are
admitted free with a paying
adult.
Strawberry shortcake tick-
ets purchased at the festival
will also cost $3.50, the same
as last year.
"For the price of a movie,
you can have a full day of
entertainment," Davis said.
Davis, his staff and festival
volunteers are doing what
they can to manage the one
variable over which they have
no control.
"We're just praying for
good weather," Davis said.

GOT SPIRIT

scores, and all the teams sat on
the floor of the Armwood gym
and waited for the results.
"They announced there was
a tie for third place," Parks
said. "That meant four out of
the 10 teams would be recog-
.nized. I just wanted us to at
least place."
When Sickles and Durant
were named as the third-place
teams, Parks gasped at, the
thought of coming in second.
"I knew we had done a great
job on the mats but wasn't
sure where we stood."
The announcement was
made that Newsome High
School was the second-place
finisher. Parks had coached
the cheerleaders there when
the school opened in 2003. She
had coached them to the
Western Conference finals that
first year and to the top three
the next year. Her team at
Plant City was about to pull off
the impossible.
"I really didn't have time to
think about how we could
make it to No. 1," Parks said.
"Cassie and I just looked at
each other. We were honestly
confused. We knew the girls
had done everything right. We
didn't understand who could
be picked No. 1. Then they said


Plant ... and that Plant seemed
to stretch out forever. My mind
raced, Is it Plant High School?
They were in the top 10 and
they were one of the teams I
didn't see compete in the fi-
nals. And then the announcer
continued with Plant City High
School. I was in shock."
Barrow said she was ecstatic
for about 30 seconds after the
winner was announced.
"I was jumping up and
down with everyone else," Bar-
row said. "Then it really hit me
and I started bawling, boo-
hoo, crying for two or -three
minutes. We worked so hard.
And it was such a great mo-
ment. I couldn't help myself.
The team really deserves a lot
of credit. They improved so
much from last year. They de-
served to win."
Bullard said all the girls on
the team went crazy.
"We were freaking," she
said. "I didn't think it was real.
We were all screaming and
hugging each other and jump-
ing around. I couldn't believe
it. We are the Western Confer-
ence champions."
Now it's on to the March 12
and 13 state championships in
Tallahassee.
"Look out, Tallahassee, here
we come," Parks said. "No
telling what might happen."

End On



The 13th


Phoio by STEPHANIE FARMER
The Durant High junior varsity wrestling team: kneeling in front, Dylan Wood; second row (from
left), head coach Kerry Beaty, assistant Colin Jones, Trent Johnson, Rafael Rosa, Louis Tur, Alex Cook
and assistant Hamilton Jordan; back row, C.J. Mazur, Matthew Farmer, William Clark, Chris Melendez,
Nick Cullen, Matt Simeone and Kaleb Sistrunk. Tur, Mazur, Brandon Booher and Daivontae Lumpkin
were also individual champions.



Durant Snags State Title

The IV wrestling team entered the contest at the last minute.


By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY For a team that
wasn't sure it would be al-
lowed into the event, Durant,
High made the organizers look
pretty smart. A late entry into
the IV State Wrestling Tourna-
ment, the Durant junior varsity
squad walked away with the
state title.
"It's pretty exciting for ev-
eryone," said Kerry Beaty, one
of the team's coaches. "Last
year was the first I'd heard of a
JV state tournament, and it
rolled around this year and I
tried to get us in."
Durant varsity coach Dennis
Kitko helped convince the
coach of the host school, Cen-


tral High in Brooksville, that
- the Cougars JV squad deserved
a spot. The event was Jan. 31.
The field of 16 teams in-
cluded many'*JV units for
schools with powerhouse var-
sity programs, such as Osceo-
la, Oviedo and Manatee. Osce-
ola's varsity squad won the.
recent Class 3A-Region 2 tour-
nament.
Four Cougars won individu-
al titles: Louis Tur (103
pounds), C.J. Mazur (145
pounds), Brandon Booher (152.
pounds) and Daivontae Lump-
kin (189 pounds).
Rafael Rosa was second in
the 215-pound class, and
heavyweight Stan Witchowski
,finished in third.


"When I first called [Central
High] coach [Roy] Reyes, it was
a 'let's see what we can do'
situation. I told him we really
wanted to be part of it," Beaty
said. "His being a good friend
of Coach KiLko I dhink helped."
Beaty said the main factor in
Durant's favor was it was able
to bring a full squad while
other schools could not. The
only. downer was Kyle Chava-
lier was unable to wrestle be-
cause he had a 103-degree fe-
ver the morning of the event.
This was the team's first
state title. The team was un-
defeated this season, with a
14-0 record.


Two Durant High
teams and a Plant
City team find
Friday unlucky.
By DAREK SHARiP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Friday the
13th proved to be unlucky for
three local teams.
Within a couple of hours
on Feb. 13 both the Durant
and Plant City boys basket-
ball teams saw their seasons
come to ark end at the District
6A-8 tournament, and the
Cougars lost to Melbourne in
the boys soccer Region 6A-3
finals.
The basketball squads
needed to win to advance to
the state playoffs. Plant City
fell to top seed Lakeland
while Durant was unable to
defeat a Sarasota Riverview
team which the Cougars had
topped twice during the reg-
ular season.
"A lot of people told me
coming into the game how
hard it is to beat a team three
times in ,a season," Durant
head coach Jeff Shotwell said.
'Well, it's reallyhard to beat a
team that is probably just a
little better than you three
times."
Sarasota Riverview was
ranked 10th in the state but
Durant's two victories had
the Cougars seeded No. 2 for
the district tourney. In the
semifinal played on Friday
the 13th, the Rams came up
with some clutch shooting
despite the rabid Durant
home crowd.


The final score was 66-53.
It was the last game as a
Cougar for the all-time lead-
ing scorer in program history,
A.J. Garden. Two other se-
niors who saw regular time
will also depart, including
Dexter Barge, who had the
most rebounds on the team
by well more than double
anyone else. Senior Denaldi
Bradley contributed five
points per game.
Durant (21-6) still had one
of the better seasons in pro-
gram history despite not
making the playoffs.
Plant City, which made the
regional finals last year, had a
rebuilding season with the
loss of three great seniors.
This year the Raiders went
9-15, ending with the 62-46
loss to Lakeland.
Raider head coach Dale
Chambers said the 9-15 re-
cord was "not what I was
expecting heading into the
season ... sure we lost plenty
from the year before but we
did have young talent. Losing
our first two games hurt our
confidence. We lost in OT to
Armwood and in a nail-biter
in the last minute to Durant.
Winning both or one of those
games would have boosted
our confidence tremendous-
ly. "
Most of the Raiders return
next year, but two key mem-
bers will graduate, Josh
Thiebe and Kenny Adams.
"Josh returned this year in
great shape. He was steady
on both ends of the court,
and we received great senior

Plant City Softball Team Off To A Good Start


The players have
won five of their
first six games.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY The Plant City
High softball team lost one of
the best players in program


history when Kendall Dawson
graduated and headed to play
for the University of Alabama.
But the Raiders haven't ex-
actly fallen off the map.
With starting pitcher Megan
Still and Dawson's replace-
ment, Taylor Storey, off to
great starts, Plant City opened
its season with five wins in its


first six games. Playing in a
tournament this month in Sar-
asota, the Raiders went 3-1
with Still on the winning end
of three shutouts.
After beginning the regular
season with a 4-0 win over
district opponent Sarasota Riv-
erview, a game where Still
struck out 15, the Raiders


headed to Sarasota.
"Our schedule this year isn't
as strong, so I wanted to get
into a tournament early," soft-
ball coach Heidi Kouveras
said. "There were 12 teams,
some really good teams, and it
turned out to be a great event
for us."
It was particularly good in


the first three games, shutout
victories over Manatee, North
Port and Braden River. Still got
some help from No. 2 pitcher
MacKenzie Audas, who was
sensational with six strikeouts
in two innings of relief wbrk
against Manatee. Audas also

leadership from Kenny Adams,
who established several career
highs throughout the season,"
Chambers said.
Durant's soccer squad will
,see a big crush from gradua-
tion. Cecil Clarke (21 goals)
and Leo Mesquita are two
great playmakers and Freeman
Bass is a tremendous sweeper;
and all could be All-State play-
ers when those squads are
announced in the upcoming
weeks.
Other seniors include Jarrett
Williams, who selflessly went
from a forward player to a
defender during head coach
Jamin Hollingsworth's time,
and Tommy McCandless.
"It's the first full class I've
had the whole time here," Hol-
lingsworth said. "Jarrett, Mi-
cah [Garcia] and Andy [Nassar]
I've had all four years. It's sad
obviously that those guys are
leaving. I've never coached a
game without those guys
around."
The cupboard is not bare for


next season. Leading scorer
Billy Fanning, who finished
two goals shy of Hollings-
worth's own Durant season
record of 28, is a junior. Goal-
tender Conner Bass and starter
David Eisenhauer are sopho-
mores. Freshman Jacob Brum-
beloe scored six goals.
Hollingsworth certainly has
no regrets over how the year
ended, thanks to the opponent
Melbourne High being of such
high quality.
"The further away we've
gotten from that game, the
better that Melbourne team
gets," he said. "They had two
guys who were very, very fast
on the outside and their
forwards might have been
their weakest point. They have
-two center mids [midfielders]
who were both physical and
very skilled, and good in the
air, and hard tacklers. And
their back line was the same
way, not fancy just very good.
They outplayed us."
Durant easily eclipsed the
school mark for wins (18) by
finishing with a 25-3 mark.
Only one other Cougars team
had ever reached the regional
finals.

Tennis Matches


Get A Bit Crazy


Reserve players last
for two hours and
15 minutes.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
-PLANT CITY Right down the
line the Plant City-Durant sea-
son opener in boys tennis was
pretty clear-cut.
Then it got crazy.
Feb. 17 at Walden Lake, the
Raiders showed up strong and
easily defeated Durant 7-0.
The five singles matches were
over so quickly that by the
time doubles began, Plant City
had already clinched victory.
With that in mind, Raider
head coach Dale Rice decided
to give some doubles action to
a pair of players who normally
would be reserves.
"I figured this would be a
great time to get them some
experience. They're both soc-
cer players really," Rice said of
Robin Hurtado and Chris Sulli-
van.
The duo, who thought they
would just be spectators head-
ing into the day, got their first
high school tennis experience
all right two hours and 15
minutes worth.
Against Durant's Craig Bea-
rison and Mel Yepes, also not
regular starters, the Plant City
duo won in a match that went
just about as long as a three-
setter can go. The score was
5-7, 7-5, 7-6 with the thirdrset
tiebreaker going to the ex-
treme as well. The final tie-
break score was 16-14.
"Why not I've got all day,"
said Rice, acknowledging the
strange circumstances. Gener-
ally, when a match is already


decided, the doubles will be
reduced to pro sets, with the
first team to eight games win-
ning.
Plant City had things
wrapped up by 4 p.m., an hour
after the match started. The
No. 2 doubles slugfest did-not
conclude until 6:30 p.m.
"Hey, that's what it's all
about. It's something those
guys will never forget, that's
for sure."
The No. 1 match was also
intriguing, as Kyle Madill re-
presented the Raiders. Madill
is a baseball standout but also
is a great tennis player, and he
won 6-0, 6-0. Rice said that as
long as Madill gets in four
matches during the tennis sea-
son, he will be eligible for
district play at the end of the
schedule.
Dustin Hinson, the normal
No. 1, won 6-1, 6-0, and Trent
Lott and Drew Balliet both
won 6-0, 6-0. At No.-4, Max
Girling won 6-0, 6-3.
Durant's girls team beat
Plant City in a match played
Feb. 17 at River Hills. Transfer
Kara Cecil, an Ohio State com-
mit, showed her talents with a
6-1, 6-0 victory over Plant
City's Arielle Rollyson.'
"She's consistent, she's
powerful, and this ain't her
first time at the rodeo. You can
tell she's played a lot of match-
es," Plant City girls coach Gary
Brady said.
The Cougars won 5-2 with
two pivotal matches both go-
ing their way, including Jane
Nappi's 6-2, 0-6, 11-9 win over
Rebecca Sperry at No. 2 singles
and No. 4 Erika Wardzinski's
7-6, 6-3 victory over Plant City
freshman Maddy Peterson.

pitched four out of the seven
innings in the 5-0 win over
Braden River,
Tara "Red" Thomas, who
along with Amanda Alba
signed a letter of intent with
Brevard Community College,
had four hits against North
Port in the 3-0 victory.
The lone loss was 8-4 to
Lakewood Ranch, a game
where Storey went 3-for-4.
"Taylor's been on fire,"
Kouveras said. "Behind the
plate [on defense], she's just as
good as Kendall was. We ha-
ven't dropped off at all."
At the plate, Storey was hit-
ting .500 through six games

while Thomas was leading the
team with a .571 average.
Still has gained some speed
on -her pitches without losing
the good movement. As she
has since she was in eighth
grade, Still works out from
time to time with University of
South Florida pitchirig coach
Monica Triner.
Although .the Feb. 13-14
tournament in Sarasota was
co-hosted by two of Plant
City's district opponents, it
was set up so the Raiders did
not have to play either team.
Already Sarasota and Sarasota
Riverview are on the Raiders'
schedule twice.
"It really worked out well for
us," Kouveras said.
Plant City is at Riverview this
Friday and hosts Freedom at 1
p.m. Saturday.
