rules.
The District will post
warning signs at locations
known to.be entrance points
for riders, including near the
bridge at State Road 6 and
U.S. 41 in Hamilton County.
Until signs are posted, offi-
cers will explain the rule to
violators, issue warnings
and ask riders to leave the
area.
The rule banning motor-
ized vehicles was adopted
by the District governing
board in late 2004 and
amended earlier this year
following publication of a
Department of Environmen-
tal Protection report describ-
ing ecological damage asso-
ciated with the use of vehi-
cles in the dry riverbed and
on its banks.
Damage cited in the report
includes destruction of vege-
tation, significant bank ero-
sion and smothering of habi-
tats important for fish and
wildlife. The report recom-
mended that motorized ve-
hicles be kept out of the en-
tire river system, including
the floodplain, river banks
and riverbed to prevent fur-


their environmental damage.
The rule has been incorpo-
rated into Chapter 40B-
4.3040, Florida Administra-
tive Code and states: "It is
prohibited for any person to
operate any motorized vehi-
cle within a work of the [wa-
ter management] district that
includes the channel of a
stream as defined by the nor-
mally recognized bank. Law
enforcement officers, during
the normal course of their
duties, are exempt from this
rule."
Chapter 373 of the Florida
Statutes authorizes the Dis-
trict to make such rules, and
section 613 states that a vio-
lation of the rule is a second
degree misdemeanor, pun-
ishable by a fine of up to
$500 or up to 60 days in jail.
"District lands are open
for recreational opportuni-
ties such as hiking, biking
and fishing, and we even al-
low limited ATV use at Mal-
lory Swamp during non-
hunting season," said Jon
Dinges, District director of
resource management. "But
our highest priority is the
protection of our natural re-
sources and in most cases,
ATV use is not compatible
with that goal."

Pictorial history book is going fast


Days Gone By, a pictorial
history of Hamilton, Suwan-
nee and Lafayette counties,
is selling like hot cakes!
The coffee-table edition,


pro-
duLced b\ Southern
Heritage Press for Live Oak
Publications, was released
for sale several weeks ago
and a tremendous response
has been seen in all three,
counties.


Many people are purchas-
ing the hardback edition as
Christmas gifts. One man
purchased three, and left his
own personal copy on the
coffee table during a
Thanksgiving gathering at
his home. After the family
got through oohing and ah-
hhing over the books, he re-
turned to purchase six more
as gifts.'
The book is filled with
nothing but photos from
the historical archives of
the three counties, some
which likely have never be-
fore been seen in print.
Each county is represent-
ed with page after page of
photographs from the 1800s
and early 1900s scenes of
roads being constructed,
flooding on the Suwannee,


celebrations, businesses that
no longer exist. The book
presents a pictorial history
that can be passed down
through the years as it gains
more and more value.
Days Gone By is available
at the Jasper News located in-
side the Bank of America in
Jasper, at the Branford News
in Branford on US 129,
Suwannee Democrat located
at 211 Howard Street East
and Croft's Thriftway in
Mayo. Checks should by
made out to Southern Her-
itage Press, not the newspa-
per.
Please stop by any of the
above locations today to pick
up this valuable pictorial his-
tory that will be passed
down through the ages.
You'll be glad you did!


Santa's virtual workshop is

now online at Jinglegram.com


The most celebrated char-
acter of the season, Santa
Claus, has teamed up with
the elves at Jinglegram to
provide kids with a
glimpse of his workshop
online.
Jinglegram features
everything to instill some
Christmas magic for all in-
cluding fun, festive and
free Santa videos, interac-
tive games, stories, screen-
savers, t-shirts and more.
This free service allows
parents and other loved
ones to use an online form
to create a personalized
note for a child and choose
a video pertinent to the
child's age. An email is sent
to an email address notify-


ing the child of the message
from St. Nick. There's also a
featured video for children
whose military parents are
on duty overseas.
The website also features
several free videos by San-
ta, who answers some of
the most common ques-
tions he's asked by children
and free screensavers.
"What makes Jinglegram
unique is that it's one of the
very few non-commercial
Christmas Web sites on the
Internet that really focuses
on the true spirit of Christ-
mas," said yet another en-
thusiastic elf.

Fact or fiction The myths of holiday traditions


'Tis the season of holiday
traditions, although a pro-
fessor at Roanoke College
in Salem, Va., would argue
that many of them are actu-
ally myths.
Christmas 100 years ago
was very simple compared
to today's extravagant cele-


brations. Historically,
Christmas was a holy day
celebrating the birth of
Christ, and the Puritans of
the 17th century honored
the tradition in a quiet, pri-
vate manner.
"They were very offend-
ed by the public revelry


and merriment associated
with the religious day, and
so such merry-making par-
ties were outlawed," he
said.
Though public celebra-
tions of Christmas resur-
faced in the 1850s, Miller
says that many Puritan

ideals still prevailed. Work
and school holidays were
typically one day, and pine
boughs or wreaths were
placed in the home, not en-
tire trees.
"Putting an entire tree in
the house would have been
considered crazy," he said.


"And to light the tree with
candles would have been
absurd. The pine cuttings
were probably adorned
with homemade decora-
tions, such as cookies, can-
dy or popcorn."

Claus of the 19th century

placed gifts of oranges,
wooden toys and marbles
into children's stockings.
Miller noted, "Citrus fruit
was a big deal during this
time; it was a, product of
the laborious railroads."
Secular music of the
Christmas holiday also
did not appear until the
19th century. The most
popular songs were
"Silent Night" and "Oh
Little Town of Bethle-
hem."
Beginning in the 20th
century, the emergence of
the glamorous Hollywood
culture had a major im-
pact on the holiday festiv-
ities, according to Miller.
Films such as It's a Won-
derful Life and Miracle on
34th Street redefined the
spirit of the season and
have become classics of
the American culture.
"Hollywood invented
much of what are now
considered Christmas tra-
ditions," he concluded.

cannabis coming from in-
side the room and asked
for permission to search
the premises. When Mar-
shall refused, Officer
Aldridge called the State
Attorney's office to re-
quest a search warrant,
according to the affidavit.
Officer Aldridge stated in
the affidavit, that while
he was on the phone, he
saw a screen on a win-
dow of Marshall's room
open and a bag of
cannabis was pushed out
from the room.
After Judge Davis is-
sued a search warrant on
Dec. 17, law enforcement
officers from the WSPD
and the Hamilton County
Sheriff's Office (HCSO)
conducted a search of
Marshall's room, accord-
ing to White Springs Po-
lice Chief Joseph Subic.
He said that the officers
found drug parapherna-
lia and 18 grams of
cannabis.
Marshall was released
on his own recognizance,
according to the HCSO
Arrest Report.

added that they don't

volved and they are wait-

A Marine's 'Twas The

Night Before Christmas
From www. theconservativevoice.comi
'Twas the night before Christmas he lived all alone,
In a one-bedroom house made of plaster and stone.
I had come down the chimney with presents to give,
And to see just who in this home did live.
I looked all about, a strange sight I did see:
No tinsel, no presents, not even a tree,
No stocking by mantle, just boots filled with sand;
On the wall hung pictures of far distant lands,
With medals and badges, awards of all kinds.
A sober thought came through my mind -
For this house was different, it was dark and dreary -
I found the home of a soldier, once I could see clearly.
The soldier lay sleeping, silent, alone,
Curled up on the floor in this one bedroom home.
The face was so gentle, the room in such disorder,
Not how I pictured a United States soldier.
Was this the hero of whom I'd just read?
Curled up on a poncho, the floor for a bed?
I realized the families that I saw this night,
Owed their lives to these soldiers who were willing to fight.
Soon round the world, the children would play,
And grownups would celebrate a bright Christmas Day.
They all enjoyed freedom each month of the year,
Because of the soldiers, like the one lying here.
I couldn't help wonder how many lay alone,
On a cold Christmas Eve in a land far from home.
The very thought brought a tear to my eye;
I dropped to my knees and started to cry.
The soldier awakened and I heard a rough voice,
"Santa, don't cry, this life is my choice;
I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more.
My life is my God, my Country, my Corps."
The soldier rolled over and drifted to sleep.
I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.
I kept watch for hours, so silent and still,
And we both shivered from the cold night's chill.
I didn't want to leave on that cold, dark night,
This guardian of honor so willing to fight.
Then the soldier rolled over, with a voice soft and pure
Whispered, "Carry on, Santa, it's Christmas Day, all is secure."
One look at my watch, and I knew he was right.
"Merry Christmas, my friend, and to all a good night!"

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


To the editor,
Is this not a wonderful
time of year? We are all so
busy decorating our hous-
es and rushing hither and
yon to buy the latest gad-
gets for loved ones and
friends. Baking and
preparing those treats we
get only at Christmas.
Parties and gatherings,
sometimes driving for
miles, maybe days to ar-
rive just on time. Then on
Christmas Eve we jump in
the car and check out all
those fancy lighting dis-
plays, only then to stay up
half'the night to help San-
ta Claus with all the gifts.
Wow! It's Christmas


morning the moment we
have worked so hard to
prepare for, hot coffee,
opening gifts, out to
breakfast or lunch de-
pending on how fast or
slowly your gifts were
opened. Nothing better.
Right?
Well, if we would ex-
pend that much energy
nurturing our faith, just
how wonderful that
would be. All the above is
fine and good but we lose
sight of the true celebra-
tion, the birth of Jesus, the
Christ child. The greatest
gift, the gift of salvation
and eternal life, all here
because of a loving return,

to attend the Christmas
Parade in Jasper last Fri-
day, you missed a treat.
The floats were outstand-
ing and seemed to never
stop coming and were
quite professional.
As I walked up and
down the street, I took in
the beauty and unique-
ness of small town Ameri-
ca. People backing up
their trucks and cars to
face the parade route,
Grandmas and Grandpas
alone and with families
from newborns on up get-
ting ready to enjoy. And
enjoy they did. What a
treat!
As president of the
Hamilton County Cham-
ber of Commerce, I was
quite proud of the parade
that the Chamber pro-
vides for the citizens of


Jasper and Hamilton
County. I would like to
especially thank Ms. Mar-
ian Turner, DaleAnn Wor-
thington, Ms. Kitty Mor-
gan of the Chamber

ers who worked long and
hard to bring this grand
parade to us all.

Dear Editor,
On behalf of the Hamil-
ton County Chamber of
Commerce Inc., I would
like to express our appre-
ciation to all who partici-
pated in our second
Christmas parade.
I have heard so many
good comments and no
complaints concerning
the parade. The floats, ve-


hicles and all exhibits
were beautifully decorat-
ed in the Christmas
theme. Thanks to all the
churches, businesses and
individuals who partici-
pated.
I am especially thankful
to Chamber of Commerce
Board member Kitty Mor-
gan, and her sister and
brother who lined up the
parade at the arena. They
did an excellent job and
the parade started on time
and ran smoothly. The
High School units were
great: the Marching Band,
FFA and ROTC. Thanks to
the City Police and Coun-

I love Christmas. I like
the carols, the coolness in
the air, the holly and ivy,
the greeting cards, the or-
naments, the toy trains,
the lighted miniature
houses, the candles, the
decorations, the Christ-
mas trees, choirs singing,
white candles in the win-
dow, the smells of Christ-
mas coming from the
kitchen, the happy
sounds of family.

Traditional meals for the holidays


The holiday dinner of a
century ago in a typical
Pennsylvania farmstead
would have taken up to two
weeks to prepare. It featured
delicacies that have van-
ished from the modern
Thanksgiving or Christmas
table and others that would
surprise people today.
According to George
Gross, director of Delaware
Valley College's Roth Living
Farm Museum in North
Wales, Penn., venison, wild
turkey or rabbit would be
served for Thanksgiving. At
Christmas, meats were often
pulled from the smoker be-
cause hunting for fresh game
was more difficult in the


snow and cold. Or one of the
youngest children might be
asked to kill a goose or one
of the farm's chickens that
had stopped laying eggs.
There was no ham or pork
on the menu for Christmas
dinner 1905, because were
daily breakfast staples and
they were not considered
fancy.
The farm wife and her
daughters and sons not old
enough for outside labor -
prepared the meats for
cooking. They would clean
and dress the deer or rabbit,
and boil and feather the
chicken or goose. The feath-
ers were saved for pillows.
The meats roasted on an


open hearth or in the oven of
a wood stove.
Cooking on the stove top
were vegetables brought up
from the root cellar such as
turnips, parsnips, squash
and potatoes that were
served mashed with fresh
butter and cream from the
family cows.
Deep-dish onion and egg
pie was a favorite in those
days and it took about five
hours to collect the eggs and
milk, prepare the dish and
cook in a wood oven. A loaf
or two of bread would have
been freshly baked earlier in
the day.
No oohy gooey "death by
chocolate" for dessert. The


farm family of 1905 would
enjoy a tart made from
canned fruit prepared earlier
and pie crust rolled and
baked that day.
It took up to two weeks to
make the favorite family hol-
iday beverage root beer.
People believed that root
beer was an excellent drink,
thinking the roots killed bac-
teria in the drinking water,
thus making it safer to drink.
They hadn't realized that if
they wanted to drink safer
water, they only needed to
boil it.
It took a full day and some-
times longer to clean, boil
and store the assorted roots
used for the beverage. Then


it took two weeks for fer-
menting.
Holidays in 1905 were not
days off as we know them to-
day. On Thanksgiving or
Christmas, the farmer and
his boys might only tend to
the animals but that still
meant hours of back-break-
ing labor beginning well be-
fore dawn.
Farmers typically ate large
breakfasts and midday
meals. Supper was a small
meal with scraps of left-
overs, perhaps a crust of
bread and some cheese or
fruit. That's why the holiday
meal of 1905 would have
been served at midday or
certainly no later than mid-


afternoon. In some places in
rural Pennsylvania "dinner"
today is still served at noon
and supper comes in the
evening.
Like today, the holiday
table of 1905 would have fea-
tured the best dinnerware,
flatware and glassware that
the hostess had to offer. Can-
dles were lit for illumination,
not for atmosphere.
The lady of the house
would have planned the
quantities for her 1905 meal
perfectly because there was
no refrigeration for left-
overs. And the next morn-
ing she would have gotten
up and started all over
again.


As we approach the end of another


time to reflect and be thankful for the many blessings he has bestowed upon us.

How to save money on

fuel during holiday travel


Hand-made ornaments on WAIT'S Christmas Purity Tree
encourage abstinence and purity. (Photo Submitted)

WAIT decorates a

Christmas Purity

Tree with hand

designed ornaments


Each member of WAIT
was asked to make a
homemade ornament for a
Christmas Purity Tree rep-
resenting abstinence and
purity. Hand designed
diplomas, gift name tags
to self respect from WAIT,
"Be a Star" stars, angels
representing virginity and
purity, and gift boxes of
virginity are only a few
examples of the creative
ornaments that adorn the
tree. WAIT members who
participated in this Christ-
mas project were reward-
ed with goodie packages
from their sponsor.
The creativity of the
group sends a message of
abstinence and encourages


everyone to give the gift to
a loved one.
As a parent, begin com-
municating to children at
an early age the risks of
pre-marital sex and keep
the discussion going
throughout their teenage
years. Even when they are
a teenager (male or fe-
male), help them make
healthy choices that in-
clude abstinence from pre-
marital sex to avoid un-
necessary risks.
Abstinence has many re-
wards that will be of bene-
fit for a lifetime. It is truly
a gift to oneself as well as
a future spouse and chil-
dren. Merry Christmas
from WAIT!


The holidays are here
and, as such, they require
more time traveling by ca.r
to visit friends and rela-
tives, attend various par-
ties and, of course, do last-
minute shopping for food
and gifts. With gas prices
continuing to rise, you
may be worried about go-
ing over budget and
spending much more on
fuel than originally in-
tended to.
Very few people have
control over the price of
fuel at the pump. What
you should focus on, then,
are things you can control,
like increasing fuel effi-
ciency, which can save
money in fuel costs, espe-
cially at a time when
you'll be using your car
more often than usual.
Here are some ideas on
how you can improve a


vehicle's fuel efficiency.
Pay attention to how
you drive. Don't exceed
highway speed limits. Use
moderate-to-easy acceler-
ation. Gas mileage is nega-
tively affected by fast ac-
celeration and fast decel-
eration. Use cruise control
on highway trips. Main-
taining a constant speed
helps reduce fuel con-
sumption.
Maintain a properly
tuned engine. Dirty spark
plugs do not create the
maximum spark and
cause reduced horsepow-
er and increased emis-
sions.
Limit use of air condi-
tioning. It may not be as
comfortable, but the issue
here is saving gas.
Switch to synthetic mo-
tor oil and drivetrain lu-
bricants. Independent


tests show savings of two
to five percent when using
synthetic motor oils, gear
lubes and ATFs.
Install clean air filter as
needed. To get optimal ef-
ficiency from your engine,
it has to breathe.
Avoid use of the roof
rack. Reduce aerodynamic
drag, and improve your
fuel economy by placing
items inside the trunk
whenever possible. Sun
roofs also disturb smooth
aerodynamic air flow, and
reduce mileage.
Properly inflate your
tires. Keep tires balanced
and rotated regularly. Use
radial tires for less friction
between tire 'and road.
Keep the front end aligned
for better mileage and
longer tire life.
Pack light, and clean out
your trunk. Every 200


pounds of unnecessary
weight shaves one mile
per gallon off your gas
mileage. You would be
surprised how much stuff
most people carry around
in their trunks that they
aren't using.
Idling any longer than a
minute wastes gas, and
one minute of idling uses
more fuel than restarting
your engine. When possi-
ble, avoid drive-throughs.
Idling for as little as 10
minutes while you sit in
line can waste five or six
miles worth of gas. Limit
warm-ups to 30 seconds.
Allowing your vehicle to
idle excessively wastes
gas.
Make a list and do all
your holiday shopping
once a week. Carpool, hike
it, bike it or use public
transportation if possible.

By Cheryl McCall
Following a North
Hamilton Elementary tradi-
tion of many years, Ms.
Zant, media specialist, read
The Polar Express by Chris
Van Allsburg. Ms. Zant
reads this story the last time
the classes come to her be-
fore Christmas. This year


marks the 20th anniversary
of the book's publication.
Kindergarten and first
grade students enjoyed a
trip to see Chicken Little at
the Valdosta Cinema on
Dec. 13. The story teaches a
valuable lesson about the
relationship between par-
ents and children and about


accepting people the way
they are. Thanks to all the
parents who attended and
enjoyed this experience
Our music students have
been busy "caroling" dur-
ing this holiday season. On
Monday, Dec. 12, the fourth
graders entertained the
PTO meeting with a
"rootin' tootin'" musical
called Christimas at the OK
Corral. They took the crowd
back to the Old West
through song and dance.
On Dec. 13, the fifth and
sixth graders joined other
county elementary schools
for the "Third Annual
1Hamilton County Elemen-
tary Chorus Holiday Con-
cert." Thev performed a va-
riety of Christmas songs for


a packed house at the
HCHS auditorium. If you
didn't make, it, you really
missed a treat!
The Sunshine Committee
organized and decorated a
delicious holiday luncheon
for the staff on Dec. 15.
Then on Dec. 16, Ms. Diane
Smith, reading coach, was
honored on her retirement
with a "Cracker Barrel"
rocking chair. Although,
we're sure she won't spend
much time in it! Best wish-
es, Ms. Smith, as you enter
this special time in your life.
Don't forget us, and come
back to visit!
Parents, mark your calen-
dars for Jan. 3, 2006 the
first day of school after
Christmas!


'Twas the Friday before Christmas and all through the school
We were trying our best not to "lose our cool."
For the children were running 'round in their Nikes and Keds
While visions of Wild Adventures danced in their heads.
And the parapros in the halls and the teachers in their classes
Were trying to control hyper young lads and lasses,
When out in the parking lot there arose such a clatter
We sprang from our desks to see what was the matter!
Away to the window we flew to look out,
Telling the kids to SIT DOWN! with a shout.
When what to our grateful eyes should appear
But the sight of yellow buses they're finally here!
This gave us the courage to last a few minutes more,
As we gently nudged the students out of the door.
And as the last vehicle pulled out of sight,
We said, "Thank You, Lord, there wasn't a fight!"
We scurried to our cars our engines gave a roar
For we all had to hurry to the grocery store!
But you could hear us exclaim, our hearts filled with cheer,
"Merry Christmas to all and a happy New Year." (From
all of us It N11F, where "we are changing lives through .
quality education."

Perry .


The Hamilton County
SIrojans basketball team
S. ade a statement this past
. v :: veek knocking off the dis-
irict leading and number
Seven team in the state
rankings, the Taylor County
Bulldogs 68-63.
Josh Jones would lead the
eamr in scoring with 26. He
,was not going to be denied
4.*n the contest shooting 12-
12 from the field. He also
ed the team in rebounding
.,grabbing 10 boards. Three
steals and five deflected
passes really offset the Per-
ry offense scheme.
Cam Cohen would not be
*': Ifar behind turning in an
outstanding overall game
scoring 22 points with four
assists. Cohen was able to
connect four times from
downtown and handed out
four assists. He also stole
the ball three times and de-
flected a pass.
Desmond Williams was a
floor general on this night.
He scored eight points, but
the unselfish nine assists is-
sued by Williams paved the
way for a lot of easy-baskets.
Williams grabbed four re-
bounds, had a steal and de-
flected three passes assisting
a very aggressive Trojans
defense on this night. He
also blocked a shot.
Other scorers for the
game were Gareth Johnson
with four points and Tyrell
Claridy, Blake Daniels,


Glenn Sheppard and An-
thony Stevens, each with
two points.
The secret to the game
was the Trojans ability to re-
bound with the Bulldogs on
an even basis. There were
several key players making
that possible.
Sheppard was aggressive
all game and finished with
eight rebounds. He also
stole the ball once and de-
flected three passes while
finding an open Trojan for
an assist.
Stevens pulled down five
boards in the effort, and
stole the ball twice with a
deflection and had one of
the teams' 17 assists.
Johnson was able to pull
down three boards and de-
flected three passes.
The win puts the Trojans
in the thick of the district ti-
tle race with a 2-1 mark. The
4-6 record the team current-
ly possesses is a result of
playing some great compe-
tition that has included a
game with Shores Academy
who is the 2004-05 National
Association for Christian
Athletics National Champi-
ons. Lowndes is also a good
game even though they are
tough to beat on the court.
Those games are starting to
pay dividends for this
group as the Trojans gear
up for the final stretch run
following the holiday
break.


.m..





Sheppard tries to find a way to make it happen against tough opposition this year. He grabbed eight huge boards against
Taylor in what turned out to be the Trojans biggest win to date. There will be more.


Three hunting

accidents in four


days mar deer season


Submitted
The general gun hunting
season has started and in-
vestigators from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC)
North Central Region are in-
vestigating three hunting ac-
i cidents.
The most recent accidents
'both happened Nov. 22,
around the same time of day,
4-30 p.m., but on different
.coasts one in Duval Coun-
ty the other in Levy County.
The first accident of the gen-
era gun deer hunting season
%% a- on Nov. 10 in Hamilton
County. All three involved
hunter: pur-uing deer with
dog_.. Luckil' tor the victims,
ill of the accidents were not
wlie-threatening.
On Nov I'-' a hunter was
truck b\ buckshot at the
-lickorv I-land Hunt Club
n Hamilton County. The ac-
ident happened around 2
'*.m. while about a dozen
iiinters -%ere pursuing a

lit I. The victim was trans-
:lrted to Trinity Communi-
Ho-pital in Jasper and lat-
tran-ported to Shands
o_-pital in Gainesville
heie he was treated and
lea-ed Both the victim
d -hooter were back hunt-
at the club the next day.
In Duval County, two
\-. ages 10 and 14, were
nting with dogs in the
et Fiftone Hunt Club


near Baldwin. The 14-year-
"old shot at a deer with his
shotgun and a stray pellet
struck the 10-year-old boy
who was standing along the
same road about 100 -150
yards away. The pellet hit
the boy in the upper chest,
penetrated his clothing and
broke the skin. He was life-
flighted to Shands Hospital
in Jacksonville, but luckily
his thick clothing prevented
the pellet from penetrating
his chest cavity.
Farther southwest of Levy
County, on the same day,
another hunter using dogs
to hunt deer in the Gulf
Hammock Wildlife Man-
agement Area suffered an-
other pellet injury. The man
was hunting with a group of
dog-hunters from the Gulf
Hammock Hunters Associa-
tion when one of the
hunters shot at a deer and a
stray pellet struck the victim
in the ankle. The man
sought medical treatment,
but his wound was minor.
All three hunting acci-
dents are under investiga-
tion by the FWC.
"This is a good time to re-
mind hunters of two of the
most important safe hunting
rules," FWC spokesperson
Officer Chris Jones said.
"Number one, know your
target and, number two,
know what's beyond your
target before pulling the
trigger. All three of these ac-
cidents could likely have
been avoided if those in-
volved had followed the ba-
sic rules."

ing an FWC hunter safety

Jones on the defense. This is a part of a rapidly improving
Lady Trojans varsity team as Coach Taylor is getting some
great efforts from his players.

Hidden meanings in


"The Twelve Days of Christmas"


Ask most people to recite
"The Twelve Days of
Christmas," and chances
are you'll find a significant
number of people who can
actually name most, if not
all, 12 verses. A frequently
played Christmas song, it's
been heard by nearly every-
one, several hundred times.
Though many of us can
quote the lyrics, far fewer
people are likely to know
the meaning behind the 12
days.
Though many assume
the 12 days refers to the
days before Dec. 25 (when
those in the Western hemi-
sphere celebrate Christ-
mas), it really refers to the
days between Dec. 25 and
the beginning of the
Epiphany on Jan. 6. The
Epiphany (also known as
"Little Christmas") is rec-
ognized as the day the
Three Magi arrived with
gifts for Baby Jesus.
As for each individual
day and what each gift
symbolizes, the largely


cryptic connotation of each
gift dates back to the times
when Catholics were not al-
lowed to openly or even
privately celebrate their re-
ligion in England. There-
fore, as a way to both cele-
brate and pass on their reli-
gious beliefs to their chil-
dren, Catholics began
singing "The Twelve Days
of Christmas," with each
gift bearing some religious
significance.
According to Catholic
Online, a Web site devoted
to providing Catholics with
information pertaining to
the origins, practices and is-
sues regarding their faith,
the song is a reflection of
the love between Catholics
and God, with "my true
love" referring to God and
"me" being all practicing,
baptized Catholics. The rest
of the song, Catholic histo-
ry suggests, can be inter-
preted as follows:
A Partridge in a Pear
Tree: Jesus Christ, the son
of God.


Two Turtle Doves: the
Old and the New Testa-
ment.
Three French Hens: the
theological virtues of Faith,
Hope and Charity.
Four Calling Birds: the
four Gospels.
Five Golden Rings: the
Pentateuch, or the first five
books of the Old Testa-
ment, all of which dealt
with man's fall from grace.
Six Geese A-laying: the
six days of creation.
Seven Si~ a A-swim-
ming:- the seven" Sacra-
ments.
Eight Maids A-milking:
the eight Beatitudes.
Nine Ladies Dancing: the
nine fruits of the Holy Spir-
it.
Ten Lords A-Leaping: the
Ten Commandments.
Eleven Pipers Piping: the
11 faithful apostles (exclud-
ing Judas).
Twelve Drummers
Drumming: the 12 points of
doctrine in the Apostle's
Creed.

The Christmas season has
now "shifted" into "over-
drive," and, by the time you
read this column, I hope you
have most of your cards
mailed, your shopping done,
and can now pretty well sit
back, relax, have a cup of
"Santa's Snow White Christ-
mas" coffee with heavy
cream and lots of sugar, pop
in a Christmas CD, light a
fire, turn on the Christmas
tree lights and "enjoy" your
Christmas. For those who are
traveling, please exercise cau-
tion and, wherever you are, I
wish all my readers a very
Merry Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas,
most of my readers know
that I am a "yellow dog" De-
mocrat but, I consider myself
moderate to moderately lib-
eral in my political leanings.
However, I must write that I
am truly sick to death of all of
the various factions in this na-
tion exerting whatever mus-
cle they have, and it must be
substantial, and all but hav-
ing the greeting "Merry
Christmas" obliterated from
the holiday scene. This year,
for the first time in a long
time, I made a special effort of
purchasing cards with the
greeting "Merry Christmas"
on them.
I just feel that Christmas is
a Christian holiday and as
Christians, we should all ex-
ert ourselves a little more
and say with pride "Merry
Christmas," not "Happy
Holidays" or "Seasons Greet-
ings." This may make some
of my readers uncomfortable
and if it does, I am truly sor-
ry but, dear friends, "reli-
gion"' is a man niade institu-
tion like education and other
societal institutions. "Reli-
gion" betrayed our Savior,
put Him on trial in Pilate's
hall, and nailed Him to the
cross but one simple word
that means so much and is
used so loosely by many in
our society, the word "love"
is what kept him there. Love
is at the center of the Christ-
ian faith and love, the love of
God through Jesus, is the rea-
son for this special season.

arrived at the restaurant "just

everyone involved with the

White Springs for missing
the meeting. I wish everyone
the very best with this project
and I promise I will try and
make it to the next meeting.

A Jewish Response To
Hunger
Over the past several
months, Hurricanes Katrina,
Wilma and Rita ravaged our
Gulf Coast states. Through
our joint efforts with states,
food banks, faith and com-
munity-based organizations,
and schools, hundreds of
thousands of the victims
were able to receive meals
and emergency food boxes
at shelters, and more than
960,000 households re-
ceived over $550 million in


emergency food stamps to
feed their families. Food
Banks across the country
shipped more than 1,700
truckloads of food from their
own inventories to the states
across the affected region.
While we. are proud of the
creativity and flexibility in
meeting the needs, we re-
main steadfast in our com-
bined effort to achieve real,
lasting results in reducing
and preventing hunger.
Combating hunger across
America requires leadership,
commitment, and partner-
ships at all levels. Our na-
tionis 15 domestic nutrition
assistance programs includ-

A delicate balance: Skin care

tips for the new mother and baby
(ARA) As a new mother, what do you do if your infant suddenly
develops what looks like a case of teenage acne or a rash on his or her
scalp? And while you're worried about your child's skin, you may be
worried about your own and the changes it experienced during and after
pregnancy. For a lifetime of healthier skin, a dermatologist a doctor who
specializes in the care of the skin can address both mother and baby skin
concerns.
"Psychosocial stressors, such as hormonal changes, sleep deprivation,
dietary changes and the new responsibility of caring for a baby can have a
significant effect on a mother's skin," says dermatologist Andrea Lynn
Cambio, M.D., of New York City. "Hormones that also can affect the baby's
skin pass from the mother
to child, leading to several
common conditions in baby
that can be resolved by
consulting with a
dermatologist."
Winter Skin Care for
Baby
The change of season can
be challenging for the
delicate skin of an infant
and Dr. Cambio
recommends the following
tips to prevent seasonal skin
conditions:
Use only fragrance-free
baby soaps and lotions.
,* Apply generous
amounts of moisturizing
creams and ointments to
areas of baby's skin that
appear dry.
Reduce the number of
baths Avoid daily baths
and spend no more than 10
minutes washing your child
in lukewarm water.
s a b* Use a humidifier to
boost moisture and ease
your child's breathing
overnight.
Don't bundle children up too tightly Heavy layers can make children
sweat, leading to' skin irritation, while under-dressing can expose your
child's skin to the elements.
Infant Skin Conditions
Recurrent diaper rash is caused by persistent wet, soiled diapers and the
use of unnecessary baby products, such as powders, creams, lotions and oils.
"When a baby has diaper rash, parents should remember to change diapers
frequently, use a warm, wet washcloth instead of pre-moistened baby wipes
on the bottom and apply a barrier cream with zinc oxide to the affected
area," recommends Dr. Cambio.
Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, is an itchy, oozing, crusting rash that occurs
mainly on the face and scalp, but patches can appear anywhere. Eczema
treatment can include the use of an over-the-counter or prescription topical,
steroid-free antihistamine.
Baby acne, which can have the appearance of pimples and whiteheads
along the nose and cheeks, is quite common in newborns. This condition
usually clears within three weeks without treatment.
Birthmarks, the two most common types of which are hemangiomas and
port-wine stains, may increase in size as a child grows. Port-wine stains are
present at birth, while hemangiomas may not immediately appear. Oral
corticosteroids can be prescribed or a pulsed-dye laser can be used to
significantly improve the appearance of these birthmarks.
Mother's Skin Changes
Dark patches on the face could be melasma, also known as the "mask of
pregnancy." This benign condition is attributed to an overproduction of
melanin, a natural substance in the body that gives color to the hair, skin and
eyes. Dr. Cambio recommends applying cosmetics to camouflage the
condition and wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a Sun Protection
Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher to prevent further darkening of the skin. A
dermatologist also can prescribe topical creams with ingredients such as
hydroquinone, retinoids, azeleic acid or hydroxyacids.
Stretch marks develop in more than 90 percent of women during
pregnancy. "There are no over-the-counter treatments to 'cure' stretch
marks, but a moisturizer may help improve their appearance and control
itching," remarks Dr. Cambio. "Women also may use a sunless tanning
product which can help hide stretch marks, or there are many successful
treatment options available from a dermatologist, such as a prescription
tretinoin cream or laser treatments."
During pregnancy, itchy, red skin is common on the palms of the hands,
and the soles of the feet. The best solution for this condition is to avoid long,
hot showers and switch to a fragrance-free non-soap cleanser. An over-the-
counter mentholated or oatmeal-based moisturizer stored in the refrigerator
can provide added relief.
"For many new mothers, caring for their own skin after pregnancy is not at
the top of their list, while caring for their newborn's skin becomes the
priority. A visit to the dermatologist can put a mother at ease about her
child's skin condition, while finding solutions to her own skin concerns,"
says Dr. Cambio.

Happy Holidays
'Twas the day before Christmas,
when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even my spouse;
Some presents were wrapped and under the tree,
But that one special gift seemed to elude me;
The evening was early, my wife tucked in bed,
Ideas for her present now danced through my head;
So I snuck to my car, 'cause the store closed soon,
And drove to the mall by the light of the moon.
When just up ahead was a flash of blue lights,
"A detour," they said, "you won't make it tonight!
The road has been closed and some trees are down,"
In an instant I knew I wouldn't make it to town.
My hope seemed all gone as I made the turn right,
Traveling down roads in the darkness of night,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a bright yard sale sign, at this time of year?
Now who would have a yard sale on Christmas eve?
I knew in a moment that I must believe,
I pulled up the drive and found tables galore,
I'd never seen a sale like this one before;
There were nick-knacks, appliances, stereos and tools!
Furniture, clothing, even bracelets and jewels!
From knock-offs to brand names, and one of a kinds,
There were dozens and dozens of bargains to find.


Duane "Cash" Hoize
& Todd "Carry" Holze


02005 The Classified Guys


I browsed through the tables of stuff piled high,
So many odd items, but nothing I'd buy,
"Oh why do I wait," I continued to strain,
"I know Christmas shopping, gives me migraines."
And then, in a twinkling, I heard from indoors,
It sounded like someone was doing his chores.
I backed from the table, and was turning around,
When the host of the sale came out with a bound.
He was dressed all in ftur, from his head-to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
"Excuse my costume, it is strange I admit,
But my wife just bet that it still wouldn't fit."

His eyes seemed familiar, his face was unique,
But I couldn't quite place those rosy red cheeks,
I thought to myself, "Have I met him before?
At the office, through friends or maybe a store?"
He offered no answers, but tried to explain,
"My basement's too full and my wife just complains;
"I'll sell you anything at a rock bottom price,
Provided," he laughed, "You're not naughty, but nice."
"I forgot a gift," I must sadly concede,
"And could use your help for that one thing I need,
A present for my wife would truly be grand,
Is there anything here that might be name brand?"
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And reached into a bag; then turned with a jerk,
"This great little present will make your wife shine,
It should be just right, as it is Calvin Klein;"
I sprang to my car, full of joy and good cheer,
In a flash the old man seemed to disappear,
Yet I heard him exclaim, as I drove out of sight,
"Happy Holidays to all,
and to all a good-night."
