Plant City kicked off its summer with a look at the proposed replacement for the MLK Recreation Center. The local arts scene was highlighted with a silver screen feature in “No Postage Necessary,” which was filmed in town, Benji Padgett’s win in Kelly Clarkson’s “I Don’t Think About You” cover contest and “Under-Medicated” starting up an improv scene in town. Mayor Rick Lott was reappointed to another term, the downtown area got “refreshed” and Krazy Kup owners Frank and Wenda Trunzo announced plans to open up a “performance pizzeria” downtown in the future. Plant City also mourned the loss of local legend Al Berry, whose voice graced the airwaves from WPLA and whose actions helped grow the Florida Strawberry Festival for decades.
