Thirty million trees and still growing


"I'm a sixth-generation Floridian, and I
plant trees for a living. Trees that give
shade and oxygen. Trees that birds
build their nests in. Trees for parks
and playgrounds and wild spaces
that will be here when my grandkids
are grown. The people I work for have
planted more than 30 million trees.
That's a lot of trees. How do I know?
I work for Florida Phosphate."

Strawberries Called A State Success Story


The agriculture
chief addresses an
annual breakfast.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Strawberries
are one of the success stories
in Florida's economic crisis,
state Agriculture Commission-
er Charles Bronson said.
Bronson was the keynote
speaker at Farm Credit of Cen-
tral Florida's annual Strawber-
ry Salute breakfast, an event
held at Florida Strawberry Fes-

Reggie Holt, president of

largest commodities the lend-

impact over the next few years

for use in ethanol. He said
agriculture's economic impact
is $103 billion a year and that
agriculture might surpass
tourism as the state's top in-
dustry.

The Rev. Ron Churchill has
announced his retirement as
pastor of First Baptist Church
of Plant City. He is shown
March 2 at the Strawberry
Salute breakfast sponsored by
Farm Credit of Central Florida.

First Baptist Pastor's
Last Sermon On Easter
The longtime pastor of the
city's largest church has an-
nounced his retirement.
The Rev. Ron Churchill will
deliver his last sermon at First
Baptist Church of Plant City on
Easter.
Churchill has been First
Baptist's pastor since 1988,
when he moved from First
Baptist Church in Fayetteville,
Ga.
Under his leadership, the
church in 1993 moved from
downtown to a larger campus
at 503 N. Palmer St., and in
recent years purchased acre-
age at 3309 S. James L. Red-
man Parkway for another pos-
sible move.
Churchill, who turns 66 next
month, will not be idle after
delivering his last Easter ser-
mon as pastor April 12 and will
not be far from the church he
has served for more than two
decades.
"I'm planning on teaching,"
he said.
He will teach at Evangelical
University and Seminary, an
interdenominational, Bible-
based educator training school
that opened in 2007 and is
headquartered on First Bap-
tist's campus.
"And I'll probably be doing
interim pastor work around
the area," Churchill added.
Additionally, Churchill is a
longtime volunteer at Steppin'
Stone Farm, where his wife,
Cindy, is the executive direc-
tor. Founded in 1973, the 85-
acre facility along the Alafia
River helps troubled girls turn
their lives around in a Chris-

tian atmosphere.
"I've volunteered out there
since we were married," he
said. "I try to help out any way
I can."
With more than 3,000 mem-
bers, First Baptist is Plant
City's largest church.
To ensure a smooth transi-
tion, a committee of 12 church
members conducted a search
for his successor.
"They've already found a
fellow; we're not telling who it
is yet," Churchill said.
A party to celebrate Chur-
chill's retirement is scheduled
for 6:30 p.m. April 19 at the
Trinkle center on the Plant
City campus of Hillsborough
Community College, 1206 N.
Park Road. The celebration
will be open to the public.

Parade Parties Rock
Around The Clock
Two former city leaders and
their spouses held celebrations
before, during and after the
March 2 Florida Strawberry
Festival Grand Feature Parade.
Former City Commissioner
Marsha Passmore and her
husband, Billy, and former
commissioner and Mayor
Randy Larson and his wife,
Chris, live along the parade
route. Both hosted parade-day
parties at their homes.
Billy Passmore, a Hillsbor-
ough County sheriffs lieuten-
ant, is often working on parade
day and can't attend his own
party. But Marsha is more than
happy to welcome guests to
their Reynolds Street home.


"Celebrating the strawberry
festival parade is a perfect rea-
son for an annual party at our
home," she said. "The crowd
typically grows to more than
100 people in the front yard
during the parade."
The Passmores have lived in
the more than 100-year-old
home since 1997.
"This is our 12th pre-parade
party," Passmore said. "This
has become a tradition that
our friends -look forward to
each year."
The Larsons' backyard abuts
the same stretch of Reynolds
and is the setting for their
party.
The Larsons have lived in
their two-story, late 19th cen-
tury home since 1994. Larson
initiated an after-parade party
when he served as chairman of
the Greater Plant City Cham-
ber of Commerce in 2000.
"This was our 10th year,"
Randy Larson said. "We did it
to give our friends in the city
and county a place to go after
the festival parade so they
could wind down and not
jump right into the traffic."
The party attracts about 300
guests each year. The affair is
catered by Fred's Southern
Gourmet Catering.
Guests include friends and
associates the Larsons know
through church, the chamber
of commerce, politics, law en-
forcement and others. Former
Gov. Jeb Bush and Gov. Char-
lie Crist are among the many
state officials who have attend-
ed through the years.
"Chris and I get to rekindle
old friendships and see people
we haven't seen in a while,"

To the cheers of his family,
Jordan Bagley was chosen the

"Weather this year was a factor. Normally we have around 125 babies or more. This year we had approximately 100. With. the
cooler temperatures and winds, I believe we had several families who planned to participate but decided against since."
KRISTI DEAN
In her fifth year as chairwoman of the baby contests at the Florida Strawberry Festival


knew our chances were good.
What else would a mother
think? But Jordan was smiling
and laughing as we passed by
the judges. He loves getting his
picture taken. Once those dim-
ples start showing, he can't be
beat."
The winner of the Most
Handsome Boy in the 13- to
15-month-old category was
Ryan Staley, son of Brian and
Rosemarie Staley of Gibson-
ton. The toddler was the only
boy competing in that age cat-


egory, making him an auto-
matic winner.
"Every other category was
strongly contended," said Bri-
an Staley, who presented his
son on stage. "Just before
going on, I found out we were
all alone in the competition.
My wife was in the audience
taking still shots and video. I
told her to be ready. Ryan was
a sure winner."
"Before the competition, I
talked backstage to the moth-
er of the little boy in the 10- to


12-month old category [Shea
Bagley]. She commented on
Ryan's good looks. We were
glad not to have competed
against each other."
Staley said his son smiles a
lot, has a good personality,
had a good time on stage and
is never shy.
Jennifer St. Martin Morgan
escorted her sleeping niece in
the Most Creative Baby Diaper
contest. Bella Grace Bikowski,
daughter of Stephanie St. Mar-
tin Bikowski and Scott Bikow-


ski won, decked out in a
dazzling white swan's outfit
fashioned as a diaper.
"Sandy Boggs [a friend of
the family] designed the cos-
tume," Morgan said. "Stepha-
nie was in the audience with
many of our family and
friends. Bella was sleeping like
a baby backstage and during
the contest. There were a lot
of interesting diapers out
there."
There was no mistaking
who the crowd favorite was.


Cheers and applause erupted
When Bella Bikowski was in-
troduced onstage and again
when named the winner.
Dean was pleased with the
event.
"We had a lot of baby boys
involved this year," she said.
"Normally the boys are out-
numbered, but not this year.
And they all were just too
cute."

Singer Swift Celebrates
Sibling's 17th Birthday
Singer Taylor Swift did more
than tune up her vocal chords
as she prepared for her March
1 concert at the Florida Straw-
berry Festival.
She and her entourage ar-
rived a few hours before the
concert and celebrated her
younger brother Austin's 17th
birthday at the festival
grounds.
Swift and others donned
party hats and pelted him with
Silly String before presenting


him with a bicycle.
Swift, 19, played to a sold-
out crowd on the festival stage.

Local Talent Wins Strawberry Run

Proceeds will help Plant City Church of God finance Operation Passion, its ministry for the needy.

and Arian Farid.

PLANT CITY The inaugural
2009 Strawberry Challenge
was a big success as 125 run-
ners and walkers joined in a
5-kilometer run-and-walk
benefitting ministries at Plant
City Church of God.
"The response to the event
was awesome," said Peggy
Nelson, wife of the Strawberry
Challenge organizer, youth
minister Mike Nelson.
"Everyone enjoyed the chal-
lenge. We have heard nothing
but positive reactions from ev-
eryone."
Proceeds from the Feb. 14
run and walk through Walden
Lake go to a church building


fund for the youth ministry
and to help finance Operation
Passion, a ministry to the
needy, Peggy Nelson said.
Two riders, Ray Hargrove
and Dwayne Chevalier, who
operate hand cycles, took their
time on the 5K route through
the streets and walking and
bike trails in Walden Lake.
Hargrove, who lost his legs
while fighting in Vietnam, and
Chevalier, who had polio in
childhood in the 1950s, are
Walden Lake residents who
ride regularly around the com-
munity.
The top four finishers
among the runners, in order,
included Arian Farid, a senior
at Durant High School; John


Carter, a runner from Zephyr-
hills; Cristie Rabum, an assis-
tant principal at the new
Strawberry Crest High School;
and Grace Vandergrist, a soph-
omore cross country runner at
Durant High.
Some of those who regis-
tered alternated between
walking and running as they
made their way along the
course. A father and daughter
team from Lakeland ran the
whole way.
"This race was a Christmas
present for my dad," said Amy
Humdon, 21, a junior at South-
eastern University. "One way
for us to spend more time
together is to run in charity-
sponsored races."


"I'm glad she is sticking with
the 5K runs," said Cliff Hum-
don, who is a psychology
teacher at the same university.
He said they have been run-
ning together recently in 5K
events all over Central Florida.
"I want to stick with this
distance for a while," he said.
Mike Nelson said the date
has already been selected for
the 2010 Strawberry Challenge.
"Feb. 20," Nelson said. "We
accomplished everything we
set out to do with the first
annual event. Next year will be
bigger and even better."

Senator Pays


Visit To Festival


Nelson was among
the dignitaries
who attended a
luncheon.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT -CITY U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson made his annual trek
to the Florida Strawberry Fes-
tival parade luncheon, but he
didn't get his usual treat.
He had to catch a 1 p.m.
flight to Washington and
didn't have time for straw-
berry shortcake.
Nelson was among a crowd
of dignitaries and festival offi-
cials who attended the March
2 luncheon at the Trinkle cen-
ter on the Plant City campus
of Hillsborough Community
College.
The luncheons typically
draw a who's who of state and
Hillsborough County politics
who mingle, shake hands and
enjoy lunch and shortcake be-
fore the festival's Grand Fea-
ture Parade. This year's crowd
included Tampa Mayor Pam


Iorio, who said she had been
attending for more than 20
years.
"I get to see everybody and
catch up," lorio said.
The crowd also included
state Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink, Hillsborough State
Attorney Mark Ober and Hills-
borough Chief Circuit Judge
Manny Menendez.
Longtime Tampa attorney
Ron Weaver said he's been
coming to the luncheons for
30 years and always enjoys the
warm reception and the ar-
ea's down-home values..
The event, once known as
the Governor's Luncheon be-
cause Florida's governor
would always attend, started
in the 1950s in the old Hotel
Plant in downtown Plant City.
It moved several times
through the years, meeting at
various times at Tampa Elec-
tric Co., a church and the
Florida National Guard Ar-
mory. The luncheon moved to
the Trinkle center in 2006.

Shortcake-Eating Contest



Gets 1st Female Winner


The college student
visited the festival
on spring break.
By DAVE NICHOLSON
dnicholson@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY Michelle
Stringer last week claimed a
slice of Florida Strawberry Fes-
tival history.
The 24-year-old college stu-
dent on her spring break be-
came the first woman to win
the festival's shortcake-eating
contest.
Stringer, a first-year gradu-
ate student at University of the
Sciences in Philadelphia,
downed four pounds of short-
cake in 10 minutes on Thurs-
day to claim a trophy and
bragging rights.
"I can't believe I ate that
whole thing," Stringer said,
clutching a trophy topped with
a figure of a golden pig.
Stringer, who is studying
physical therapy, said she at-
tended the festival last year but
didn't know about the short-
cake contest until it was too
late. She made sure she en-
tered in plenty of time this
year.
Barbara Caccamisi, who
headed the competition, said
the contests have been held for
about 30 years, sponsored by
St. Clement Catholic Church,
which has a shortcake stand at
the festival. Ten competitors
were picked at random and
four pounds of shortcake
placed in front of them. The
one to eat the entire shortcake
- or come the closest in 10
minutes is the winner, she


Stringer is about halfway through four pounds of shortcake on
her way to victory in Thursday's shortcake-eating contest.


said.
For the first seven minutes,
the contestants use a spoon.
For the final three minutes,
they use their hands.
In Stringer's case, she
mopped up the last of the cake
just as time was expiring.
Stringer and the other com-
petitors seven women and
three men were cheered on
by strawberry festival queen
Lauren Der and her court and
a crowd that jammed into the
Stingray Entertainment Tent.
Tony Defrancesco used a scale
to ensure each shortcake
weighed four pounds as he
heaped berries and whipped
cream on oversized yellow
cakes.
The contest's emcee, retired
Plant City fire chief Wesley
Rounds, noted that 55-gallon
trash cans were strategically
placed behind the contestants.
"Do I need to explain why they
are there?" Rounds asked, elic-
iting- a _roar of laughter- from


the crowd.
Defrancesco later confided
that in his 10 years helping
with the contest, "I haven't
seen anyone throw up yet."
After the contest Stringer
posed for photographs with
her trophy. Defrancesco posed
for one shot with her, noting
that she lives in Philadelphia
and he used to live in Pitts-
burgh.
Stringer said she didn't
starve herself for the contest,
eating a regular breakfast and
lunch. Stringer, who said she is
in the area visiting her sister,
Christiana Stringer of Bran-
don, said she likes shortcake,
but not usually in such quanti-
ty.
Rounds, who himself is a
former shortcake-eating
champ, said the contest has
one purpose: "The whole thing
is designed to be fun."

LETTERS M


Money Spent On Lots Is
Needed Elsewhere
The Plant City Courier &
Tribune reported that at the
Nov. 24 Community Redevel-
opment Agency meeting, the
city commissioners voted to
purchase the lots at 108 and
110 S. Collins St., currently
used by Snellgrove's Restau-
rant as their parking lot. The
suggested purchase price of
$475,000 was agreed upon
with owner Curtis Devane,
who then was to donate back
$50,000 for landscaping of the
lot to cover the "ugly" side of
the abutting building.
Research has discovered
that the city was not offered an
appraisal of the value of this
land, but an "estimated value"
which is roughly based on the
taxable value of the land. The
lot at 108 S. Collins is valued at
$64,868, and the lot at 110. S.
.Collins is valued at $91,685, for
a total taxable value of
$156,553. In "normal" eco-
nomic times, a Realtor would
present these in total for ap-


proximately $313,000 or dou-
ble the taxable value. But these
are not normal economic
times; this lot has never been
offered to the public by a Real-
tor; and our tax dollars are
being used to purchase land
that, until someone comes
knocking on the City Hall door
to purchase these lots, is going
to be used by Snellgrove's Res-
taurant as their parking lot.
I believe Plant City already
has enough vacant lots and
built-out space to cover any
needs of prospective purchas-
ers for the next few years.
These tax dollars certainly can
be better used for the benefit
of our citizens NOW, not 5 to
10 years down the road.

Editor's Note: The writer is
referring to two lots left va-
cant by a 2005 arson fire. The
lots were later purchased by
Curtis Devane and his wife
Tammy, how own Snellgrove's
Restaurant across Collins
Street. City officials say they
hope to eventually sell the
property to a developer.

Several readers at tbo.com
wrote to express their sym-
pathy after reading an article
about Army Spec. Samuel Val-
dez, the Plant City solider who
was lost at sea from an Army
tugboat off the North Carolina
coast. Valdez, an Iraqi war vet-
eran and member of the crew of
the Major General Winfield
Scott, disappeared from the
vessel Feb. 22 in heavy seas.
The 22-year-old solider, who is
presumed dead, is survived by
his wife, Lynda, who is three
months pregnant, and their
15-month-old son, Sammy Jr-.


Accompanied by the tug-
boat's master, Lynda Valdez and
other family members toured
the vessel after the accident.
What a nightmare! I have
family in the armed forces, this
is unbelievable. So sad to see
this.
Posted by almom

Very, very sad.
Posted by uknownance

I think she did the right thing
by touring the boat. It might


hurt now, but I think it'll help
her in the long run, knowing
more about what her husband
did on board, in service of his
country. Lynda and Samuel,-I'm
sorry for your loss, and grateful
for the sacrifices you and your
husband made for our country.

I am so sorry Mrs. Valdez for
you and your little one. He will
be proud of his father when he
grows up! Thank you.for your
sacrifice.


It's so hard to begin to mea-

When we lose someone like
him, it really affects us all. I'm
deeply sorry for the pain of his
friends, family and fellow ship-
mates.

The newlyweds' prizes included the ceremony and reception, strawberry shortcake
wedding cake, plus a wedding night stay at a local hotel.


picked up a pen.
"We were engaged two years
ago," so the timing was right to
get married, said the new Mrs.
Lingerfelt.
They were wed Feb. 28 at
the festival grounds' gazebo.
Recalling that fateful first
date, Jesse said his family was
planning to visit the festival,
and he decided to call his
mother for permission to ex-
pand 'the guest list. "I called
her from [Plant City High]
school and asked her if I could
bring a friend with me."


The rest, as they say, is
history.
The newlyweds' prize in-
cluded the ceremony and re-
ception, including strawberry
shortcake wedding cake, plus
a wedding night stay at a local
hotel.
Like everyone else pinched
by today's economy, the
young couple was struggling to
save money, so when the
"strawberry wedding" contest
was launched, it seemed an
ideal way to tie the knot and
cut costs.


The honor included wed-
ding photography by Harry
Jeffcoat and free festival entry
for the wedding party and
guests. Relatives came from as
far as Tennessee to attend,
Jennifer said.
The three-tier strawberry
shortcake that was part of the
prize package donated by local
sponsors was prepared by vol-
unteers at St. Clement Catholic
Church, which has long oper-
ated the popular make-your-
own-strawberry-shortcake
booth at the festival.


Following the ceremony,
which was also witnessed by
about 500 festival attendees, a
private reception catered by
Applebee's, Outback Steak-
house and Alessi Bakery was
held in the Stingray Chevrolet
Entertainment Tent, also at
the festival grounds.
The strawberry wedding
promotion was a one-time
event, and festival organizers
have not decided whether to
repeat it next year.
Jesse, 22, and Jennifer, 19,
both longtime Plant City resi-


dents, spent their wedding
night at the Red Rose Inn and
Suites, with brunch the next
day, all complimentary.
When Jennifer announced
plans to enter the inaugural
contest, Jesse told her, "Go for
it." She wrote the first drafts by
hand before turning to the
computer, where Jesse helped
edit the joint effort.
"It went perfect," Jennifer
said of her wedding.

me and a lot of other people. It
was a great day."
Smith, a patrol sergeant in
the Plant City Police Depart-
ment, noticed last year the


flagpole at the Mike Sansone
Community Park's Little
League complex wasn't being
used.
"It has been something like
five years since a flag has been
flown there," Smith said. "I
contacted Jack Holland at the
city recreation and parks de-


apartment earlier this year, and
they repaired and repainted
the pole, and even provided a
flag until the one the Little
League ordered arrived."
Smith, a board member for
the 58-team league, suggested
the league incorporate a flag-
raising ceremony each day.


Another board member, Dan-
ny Coton, who also is a direc-
tor for the Florida Strawberry
Festival, helped arrange the
appearance of festival queen
Lauren Der, who threw out the
first pitch.
Der and her court members,
first maid Sara Beth Newsome


and Megan Cochran, Joclyn
Emerson and Morgan Feaster,
were on hand to help start the
season's first game between
the Marlins and the Cubs in
the 9- to 10-year-old bracket.

Every Minute Someone Dies From a Heart Attack


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

First Vet Arrives At Festival


PLANT CITY A Ruskin man
whose service career spanned
30 years, including service in
World War II, was the first
veteran through the gate
March 4 as the Florida Straw-
berry Festival celebrated Mil-.
itary Day.
The festival offered free ad-
mission during the da\ for
active, reserve and retired mil-
itary men and women. The
first one to enter when the
gates opened was 80-year-old


Dan Werner, whose military
career included service with
the Air Force, Army and Coast
Guard.
The visit was the retiree's
third to the annual strawberry
festival. The retired veteran
came early to watch the 4-H
members with their cattle.
Military Day was sponsored
by Winn-Dixie. This is the first
year the festival has offered
Military Day; officials haven't


decided whether they will re-
peat it in future years. The
festival association decided on
the day in keeping with the
2009 theme, "Hometown Sa-
lute to America."
A festival spokeswoman said
a steady stream of veterans,
including some bused in from
James A. Haley Veterans Hos-
pital in Tampa, visited the fes-
tival.

Basketball Rivals Join Forces


For County All-Star Game


Garden, Thiebe
to play together
on East team.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY For the last
couple of years they were the
biggest of rivals, but this Satur-
day A.J. Garden and Josh
Thiebe will be literally shoot-
ing for the same goal.
Durant's Garden and Plant
City High's Thiebe were select-
ed to play for the East in the
Tampa Bay Basketball Coach-
es Association's Hillsborough
County All-Star Game.
Their coaches will also be
working together. Durant's Jeff
Shotwell and Plant City High's
Dale Chambers are coaching
the East squad.
"That will be a lot of fun,"
Shotwell said. "I'm really
looking forward to working
with Coach Chambers and the
All-Star kids. We'll have a pret-
ty good squad. And Chambers,
like myself, is a sweater vest
guy so we should work really
well together."


Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m. at
Tampa Prep.
Also on the East team is
King's Toarlyn Fitzpatrick,
who led the Lions to a trip to
the 5A state semifinals. King
lost to Gainesville in the March
4 semifinal.
John Henson, 6-foot-10-
inch center for Sickles who's
headed to the University of
North Carolina, will lead the
West side.
Only seniors are playing in
the East-West game, but Du-
rant sophomore Andre Nation
did get recognition from the
coaches association. Nation,
Garden and Thiebe were all
among those chosen to the
association's All-Star team, the
top 24 Hillsborough Counity
players regardless of class.
There were 10 underclass-
men including Nation on the
All-Star list. The 24 players will
be honored at the annual asso-
ciation banquet April 1 in Tam-
pa.
As for the All-Star game, if-
the East team wins, Shotwell
and Chambers will get to
coach the Hillsborough Coun-


ty squad the following week-
end as it takes on Pinellas
County All-Stars at Eckerd Col-
lege.
Another Durant player, Jef-
frey Thomas, was recently
named to the Western Confer-
ence First Team for the Na-
tional Division along with Gar-
den.
Shotwell, who was voted
Coach of the Year for the Na-
tional Division, was glad to see
Thomas get noticed.
"The coaches recognized his
impact on our team and our
success this year," Shotwell
said. "Maybe his [statistical]
numbers don't warrant recog-
nition but all of the coaches
who have seen him play know
his importance to the team."
With Thomas running the
point Durant went from 12
wins last season to 21 this year.
Plant City had one player,
Quet Shaw, make the girls First
Team in conference honors.
Janae Lancaster of Durant was
all named First Team and her
Cougar cohort Taylor Broad-
nax merited Second Team
honors.

They mean a new
outlook for Plant
City and Durant
high schools.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY When the final-
ized new districts for basket-
ball, volleyball and soccer were
released recently there didn't
seem to be much news affect-
ing Plant City and Durant.
And that indeed will be the
case unless the Raiders and
Cougars make the playoffs in
any of those sports.
Reclassification that goes in-
to place next school year .has
Plant City and Durant shifting
into a new region within Class
5A. Instead of landing in a
Hillsborough/Pinellas domi-
nated region, the schools find
themselves paired up with
teams to the east and some to
the north.
When the original changes
were announced by the Flori-
da High School Athletics Asso-
ciation in February, Plant City
and Durant were put in Class
5A-District 9 along with Arm-
wood, East Bay, Newsome,
Tampa Bay Tech and Free-
dom. The latter school was the
only one not in east Hillsbor-
ough County but did not con-
stitute too great of a travel
hassle.
But Freedom wanted to
move out, and the solution
proved to be easy. Last week
Riverview, which was at first
put in District 5A-10 along with
schools such as Chamberlain,
Gaither and Hillsborough,
simply swapped districts with
Freedom.
That part is easy to digest.
Plant City, Durant, Armwood,
East Bay, Newsome, Riverview
and Tampa Bay Tech make for
a centralized new District
5A-8.
But that puts the Raiders
and Cougars in Region 2 in-
stead of Region 3. Since teams
who make the playoffs have to
advance out of their own re-
gion first before competing for
a state title, the quality'of the
region's teams often dictate


the chances for success.
And those other regional
-squads constitute a whole dif-
ferent playoff outlook for the
Raiders and Cougars.
Now the Plant City schools
are grouped with foes mostly
from Polk County but also
from Orange and Hemando.
There are no schools from
Hillsborough in the region,
outside of the ones in 5A-8.
Most curious is the new Dis-
trict 5A-7, which has only three
schools in it. They are all way
to the north: Brooksville Cen-
tral, Springstead and West Port
out of Ocala.
Those are the three schools
that Plant City and Durant
would pair up with in the first
round of the playoffs.
Outside of that shocking bit
of news that a first playoff
game might involve a haul to
Ocala the rest of the new
region is different but not as
unsettling. The teams in 5A-5
and 6 would only become an
opponent in the region final.
Most of those schools are in
Polk County including Lake-
land, Kathleen, Auburndale
and Bartow, but there is one
Orlando school (Evans) and
three from Kissimmee.
How this affects Plant City
and Durant varies by the sport.
For basketball, Polk County
teams such as Kathleen, Bar-
tow, Winter Haven and Haines
City (all in Region 5A-2) are
strong, and Evans happens to
be a powerhouse.
Springstead and West Port
went to the 4A regional final in
boys basketball this year.
For soccer, Auburndale has
evolved into a dominant boys
team, but otherwise the season
should prove easier to navi-
gate. And in volleyball the out-
look is a lot better for Durant
and Plant City.
Later on this year softball
and baseball will learn their
new districts, which will likely
be similar if not identical.
Announcement of the final-
ized basketball, volleyball and
soccer districts was were re-
vealed March 3. All of the new
districts can be viewed at
www.fhsaa.org.

Raiders, Cougars


Hit The Diamonds


The baseball and
softball teams both
play tonight.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY With the teams
as evenly matched as ever,
Durant and Plant City will play
for the first time tonight in
both baseball and softball.
Both games start at 7 p.m. at
Durant High.
This year is off to a better
start for the Raiders on the
softball side, but defending 6A
state semifinalist Durant is far
from being counted out. The
Cougars got off to a rough 1-4
start before winning their next
two.
"We'll get it together," said
Durant head softball coach
Matt Carter, whose team has
10 freshmen on the roster and
has had several injured players
miss the first couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, Plant City shot
out to a 10-1 start before falling
last week in a tough 1-0 game
against East Bay. Indians
pitcher Kayla Cox struck out 19
Raiders.
It's looking like District 6A-8
will be extremely well-bal-
anced, with the Raiders and
Cougars, East Bay, Riverview
and both Sarasota teams
seemingly capable of winning
against any of the others.
"It's tough. If you make just
a few mistakes, the other
team's going to be capable of
putting you away," Carter said.
He noted that new starting
pitcher Erika Wetherington
has been performing well, but
in three games, the defense
faltered, leading to 10 un-
earned runs. However, every-
thing came together in a 2-1
district win over Sarasota on



Youth Football,
Cheerleading Signup
PLANT CITY The Antioch
Redskins will hold signups for
football and cheerleading from
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday,
April 18, May 16 and June 27
and 6 to 8 p.m. June 25 at the
team's field, 8510 N. Franklin
Road, off McIntosh Road.
The signups are for children
ages 4 to 16. Teams are limited
to 30 per team, and rosters fill
up fast.
) ( ., )?f1. v r r


March 3.
Durant followed that up
with an easy 13-1 win over
Lakeland. Sisters Brielle and
Corinne Gordon had two RBIs
each, as did Kelsey Horton and
Kim Wright.
Horton, who has committed
to play for the University of
Florida, has gotten off to a slow
start, something Carter knows
will turn around, adding to his
optimism for the rest of the
season.
This weekend, Durant was
headed to Tallahassee for a
tournament. On Friday, the
Cougars play Florida High, a
smaller school from the state's
capital, along with another
smaller school, Jacksonville's
Bolles.
After pool play Friday, the
dozen schools involved will
enter into bracket play to de-
cide the tournament champ..
Over on the baseball dia-
mond tonight the intensity -
and desperation level -
promise to be intense between
the rivals. Both Durant and
Plant City have run up against
6A-8 powers Lakeland and Sar-
asota, both state title contend-
ers, and league victories have
been hard to come by.
Plant City's lone league win
heading into the weekend was
a 4-2 defeat of Riverview, a
team Durant lc st to 7-3. But
the Cougars wei e able to surge
ahead of the Raiders in the
district standings when they
beat Sarasota Riverview 7-5.
Michael Crabb and Brad Sa-
bourin both drove in two runs
for that Feb. 27 game.
Next up for Durant is a
tough one, a trip Friday to
Lakeland before hosting Bran-
don on Saturday afternoon.
The Raiders follow up the Du-
rant trip with a nine-day break.


Fees are $130 for tackle foot-
ball and cheerleading teams or
$85 for flag football. A pay-
ment plan is offered with $75
deposit. The balance must be
paid before the first day of
practice in July. Parents or
guardians should bring their
child's birth certificate and
current wallet-sized photo to
signups. Varsity boys players
must have a drivers license or
Florida ID.

Outdated
Sunscreens
Sunscreens deteriorate and lose
effectiveness over time. Some
manufacturers mark sunscreens with an
expiration date. Discard any sunscreen
that is over three years old or appears
discolored. Sunscreens may deteriorate
quicker if not stored in a cool place.
Sunscreens should only be used by
adults and children over six months
old. Infants should be kept in the shade.
Be sure to protect your skin by using
sunscreens that block both UVA and
UVB rays and have an SPF of at least
15. If you have sensitive skin, ask your
pharmacist to help you choose the
sunscreen that is best for you.

Sally Spooner
wins the December
beautification
award.
By PENNY BRAGG
Special to the Tribune
PLANT CITY The Plant City
Garden Club has presented its
December beautification
award to Sally Spooner of Pad-
dock Drive, who moved here
in May.
It has not even been a full
year, yet she managed to do an
amazing amount of work in
her gardens. The yard was
filled with plunbago, which is
great, but she wanted variety.
So she replaced much of it
with new and interesting
plants on all sides of her home.
All along the perimeter of
the house, decorative pavers
placed in a serpentine manner
allow gardens to swell into
larger areas out into the yard
and then retreat back again up
nearer to the house. These
areas are mulched and planted
with everything from orna-
mental grasses to small and
bushy plants to small and me-
dium-sized trees. Some are fo-
liage plants and some are flow-


ering.
Lava rocks and metal or
ceramic sculptures are found
here and there to add to the
charm.
The largest area leading by


walkway to the house has a,
sizable earthenware pot with
bougainvillea in it and African
iris and snowbush nearby. Lit-
tle rust-colored lanterns lead
the way to the house. By the


front door is a large potted
dracaena with a frog reclining
on a "leaf chair" next to it. The
pavers then run left along the

however, a second fruit tree
more than makes up for it.

are used to seeing; instead, it
has made excellent use of an
old tree stump. Running from


there to the front of the house,
we pass by red hibiscus, mari-

reach the right front comer of

bushes, a pink hibiscus and
lots of blooming periwinkle.

Simplicity Of Order And Worship


Members of Fellowship Primitive Baptist Church stand behind the heritage in their faith.


By DEREK MAUL
Tribune correspondent
WIMAUMA In 1875, five
miles east of Wimauma,.
25 people signed their
names to a charter, and Fellow-
ship Primitive Baptist Church
was born. Today, 12 committed
members maintain a timeless
and vital ministry and the his-
torical pioneer family cemetery.
Fellowship's interim pastor,
Elder Donald Martin, deacon Earl
Stanland and church member
Clyde Holland recently talked
about the church and its expan-
sion plans.
Q. How long have Primitive
Baptists been in Florida?
A. Elder Mosley came down
here in a horse and buggy in
1850 on a wilderness trail. The
Plant City Mount Enon Church
was the mother church of all
Primitive Baptist in Florida. And
this church [Fellowship] is one
of two that maintained the
original predestinarian position.
Q. How active is the church
today?
A. We have 12 actual official
members; then anywhere from
20 to 30 in attendance. These
churches used to be hubs of the
community; today, people come
from all around.
Q. Is this the original building?
A. This building was built in .
1957; the original burned in
1963. We have 43 acres, in-
cluding the cemetery.
Q. Why are you expanding the
facility?
A. We wanted a building for
community functions, a place
where the community can gath-

Holland are leaders in Fellowship Primitive Baptist Church.


er. So we started counting our
nickels and dimes, and we're
erecting it here by the cemetery
to better serve the community.
Q. How can people help?
A. There are many pioneer fami-
lies in this cemetery, and if
people want to help financially
to assist this program we'd be
grateful. The cost is probably
going to end up around
$100,000. Also, since 1904,
we've had Cemetery Workings
twice yearly. We'll eat together
and work the day.
Q. Define "Primitive."
A. Primitives maintain a simplic-
ity of order and worship that's
becoming more and more of an
interest. There is a draw to.the
simplicity here that the common
Baptists do not have; Primitives
are not into programs, enter-
tainment and so forth.
Q. Is the music different?


FELLOWSHIP
PRIMITIVE
BAPTIST CHURCH

The church is at 10232 State
Road 674. Wimauma. and
meets at 10:30 am. the first
Sunday monthly; a luncheon
follows each service. Elder
Donald E. Martin Sr. is interim
pastor. Call (352) 793-1721.


A. We sing totally a cappella,
and we sing by meters, not by
notes. It's been a tradition since
1717 in the United States. We
feel God has given us voices as
instruments without the
drowning out of the noise. The
only Primitives with instruments
are the Progressive Primitive
Baptists.
Q. When did Primitive Baptists
begin?


Fellowship Primitive Baptist Church was established in 1875 and
wants to add a new building.


A. We came from England in the
early colonies. They were called
Strict and Particular Baptist. In
1832, after the Black Rock Ad-
dress in North Carolina, the
missionary-minded went to the
left and the Primitives went to
the right. We have a strict posi-
tion against means and meth-
ods; we continued to go the old
paths.
Q. So what is the church up to
today?
A. The historical aspect of the
Gospel we stand for and the
heritage we've maintained
through the years is more im-
portant than what we're up to.
Q. Were you raised Primitive?
A. I was raised Methodist, then
converted ... at 27. I went to the
Southern Baptists, then started
to minister among Primitive
Baptists in 1975. I'm an elder -
that's what we call preachers -
we don't take titles of reverend.

We love you very much and are all so proud of
the wonderful Christian example you have always been!


.Happy B birthday!

....... Betsy, Pam, Renee. Todd & Sarah


I've been interim pastor here
since two years.
Q. How important is tradition?
A. As a Primitive Baptist assem-
bly we've carried on the history
just as it was when the church
was established. What we do
here on a given service day is
no different from what they did
back in 1870. Simple singing
and Scripture discourses from
the pulpit with no kind of pomp
and show. The simplicity is one
of the key things to our witness.
, We've been an unchanged
group of Baptist people down
through time.
Q. Dinner on the grounds?
A. Every Sunday after church.
Q. Why do Primitives resist
programs and missions?
A. We believe in the absolute
predestination of all things. We
believe God has called out a
people throughout the genera-
tions of time.
Primitive Baptists maintain
that this election work of God is
being accomplished and he's
bringing people into his church
as he so desires. We believe
that if someone is to be here,
then God in his sovereign pur-
pose/will bring him here. We're
not trying to build the church
bigger and better by the efforts
of men's hands.
Q. How do you feel about the
future?
A. I feel very positive, and here's
why. We believe in the absolute
sovereignty of God that God
is in control of all things. We
have confidence that our God
has everything under control.
