Dog fighting discovered in Columbia City


Authorities arrest
two Marion County
men in alleged ring.
By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter.comrn
COLUMBIA CITY An
anonymous tip led Columbia
County Sheriff's deputies to a
possible dog fighting ring


where two men were arrested
and charged in connection
with the alleged fracas.
Gantry Louis Belvin, 36,
and Todd Shevan Williams,
29, both of Marion County,
were arrested and charged
with fighting or baiting ani-
mals and unlawful assembly.
Both men were later released
on $42,000 bond each.
According to the sheriff's


office, reports of a dog
fighting ring near Columbia
City led deputies to investi-
gate the claims on Saturday.
After the arrests were made,
sheriff's investigators kept
the incident quiet and
searched for others involved
in a possible dog-fighting ring.
When deputies responded
to the area near Nautilus
Road, more than 20 vehicles


were leaving the area at a
high rate of speed. The two
responding deputies avoided
a collision with the oncoming
vehicles, turned their patrol
cars and began pursuit of the
fleeing motorists.
The deputies eventually put
the focus on two SUVs. When
one of the vehicles became
stuck in the mud of the dirft
road,, the driver leapt from


the vehicle and fled into a
wooded area.
He was not captured.
Deputies were able to force
another vehicle to the side of
the road and arrested Belvin
and Williams, the driver and
passenger in the vehicle.
Examination of the vehicle
revealed a scarred pit bull dog

FAST FACTS

A sobering reminder


JASON MATTHEW WALKER/Lake City Reporter
GreenLeaf Auto Recyclers site manager Robert Rutledge (left) and business development representative Keith Caudill
staged a wreck Thursday morning to demonstrate what might happen to motorists who drink and drive during the
holidays. 'I like this slogan I heard,' Rutledge said, 'Don't drink and drive, we don't like meeting our friends by accident.'

Startled motorists slowed east-

several hours Thursday when they
saw what they believed to be a hor-
rific accident scene at GreenLeaf

The tangle of smashed and over-

employees of the auto recyclers as a
graphic reminder to drive sober this
holiday season.

Permit

use draws

plenty of

discussion
Argument made
that burdens are
placed on families.
By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.com
Plenty of discussion was gen-
erated Thursday during the
first public hearing of two
proposed text amendments to
the Columbia County land
development regulations per-
taining to the special temporary
use permit and the special
family lot permit during
Thursday's meeting of the
Columbia County Board of
County Commissioners.
The special family lot permit
allows a land owner to deed a
minimum one-half acre to a rel-
ative for a trailer providing it is
his or her primary residence.
The relative occupying the
trailer must be either a grand-
parent, parent, step-parent,
adopted parent, sibling, child,
stepchild, adopted child or
grandchild of the owner.
The proposed regulation

Laura Folsom's fifth-grade
Summers Elementary School
class learned a valuable lesson
Thursday when members of
the Florida Highway Patrol
promoted bicycle safety.
Lt. Mike Burroughs and
FHP Auxiliary Lt Beaver Twist
talked to Folsom's 20 fifth-
graders about the importance
of bicycle safety and stressed
the need to always wear a
helmet
Folsom said because so
many children receive bicycles
for Christmas, she thought it
would be a good decision to
have the FHP officers attend
the class.
"Some of the students had
talked about some of the things
they do on bicycles," she said.
"They were ready and inquisi-
tive today before the troopers
came in."
In addition to answering stu-
dents' questions about what
they should and should not do
on bicycles, the FHP'officers
went over a lot of the basics to
ensure that children are safe
when riding their bikes.
"In making an attempt to
teach motorists to learn to
share the road, recent studies
have shown that distracted
driving to be equally dangerous
as impaired driving so, because
so many motorists are doing a
myriad of things other than just
driving, they are paying less
attention to other traffic that is
adjacent to them, some of
those being pedestrians and
bicyclists, with a larger percent
of those being children,"
Burroughs said.
He said the number of bicy-
.cle injuries in the state has
increased almost 40 percent
during the past two years,
according to an Florida
Department of Transportation
study.
Burroughs and Twist
demonstrated the effectiveness
of helmets to students by using
examples with fruit and eggs.
When dropped into a box with
foam and pads, similar to the


insulation found in a helmet,
the eggs did not crack and the
fruit did not bruise. However,
when dropped on a hard
surface, the eggs shattered
and the exterior of the fruit
reflected dark bruises.
Twist told the students if
they have to ride on the road,
they should ride with traffic,
observe the road rules like a
motor vehicle would, which
includes stopping at stop signs,
and showed them the proper
signals to initiate left and right
turns, as well as slow down.
Burroughs said that he does-
n't encourage the students to
travel along the busy roadways;
but if they must, they should
exercise caution.
"Don't think that drivers are
looking out for you, because
they're not," he told the stu-
dents, adding that some may
be performing other tasks,
such as putting on make-up,
changing CDs or talking on cel-
lular phones. "They are doing
all of these things, but they're
not looking out for you."
The FHP officers also
demonstrated how to properly
fit a bicycle helmet. Helmets,
donated by a grant through
FDOT, were given to each
student in the class.
"With it being just before
Christmas, and knowing that
quite a few children would like-
ly be getting bicycles or skate-
boards, we saw this as a perfect
opportunity to prepare them by
giving them a helmet first,"
Burroughs said.
He said in Florida, it is
required that anyone under the
age of 16 riding a bicycle must
wear a helmet.
'"We have approximately
900 students and are located in
the center of Lake City where
children ride bikes and enjoy
our beautiful hometown, but
we must educate and encour-
age them to always be
safe," Terri Metrick, Summers
Elementary principal, said in a
released statement. "Since it is
the holiday season, numerous
children will be receiving
bikes, and we want them to be
safe and return back to school."

To be considered for rehabil-
itation, a person must own the
property and have no credit
disputes or liens, Lee said.
Handicapped and elderly
persons will be considered first
for rehabilitation and then
families with children. Lee
estimates that approximately
$60,000 will be spent on each
home. Though the particular
needs of each home may
change, the amount of money
used on each.
"We may spend less on one
and spend more money on the
others," Lee said.
A task force has been set up
- to help make recommenda-
tions to city council about how
and where the money is used,
Lee said. The last CDBG grant
had about 75 people sign up,
but 'only 25 people received
rehabilitated homes.
Lee said many of the people
not chosen for the previous
grant had bad credit they were
trying to get cleared.
A major factor in the housing
area is helping low to moderate
income families get their
finances in order so that
they can qualify for housing
programs.
No houses have been identi-
fied for the grant at this point,
but the application process will
be advertised in the future.

atee@ wa previously part of

Committee.
Committee members are

Jefferson, Mayor Stephen Witt,

Manager Alex Hinley, Susan
Christopher from Columbia
County Housing Authority,
Linda Ivery and McCellum and
John Flanagan from the GLC.
-New members from the
banking and building develop-
ment fields may be added later,
Jefferson said.
The committee will meet the
third Thursday of each month.
The next meeting will take
place at 6 p.m. Jan. 17 in

The Greater Lake City
Community Development Cor-
poration may be the first non-
profit housing organization to
receive donated land from the
City of Lake City.
The process to make sure
the title is clear on residential
lots owned by the city began at
Thursday's first Lake City
Housing Committee meeting.
Lester McCellum, who sits
on the committee and is part of
the GLC, had first made the
request at Monday's City
Council meeting. The GLC has
asked the city to donate three
residential lots to the group so
affordable housing can be built
on the properties.
McCellum said the purpose
of the GLC is to build afford-.
able housing and then find a
homeowner that is willing to
take care of it. The GLC agreed
to take the land a parcel at a.
time, as the titles are cleared by
City Attorney Herbert Darby,
and begin construction.
"The titles have to be cleared
and the property declared sur-
plus before they can be
auctioned off or given away,"
said Growth Management
Department Head Larry Lee.
City Manager Scott Rey-
nolds said he would consult
with Darby on the status of the
titles for property located o0.,
Washington, Escambia and
Monroe streets.
McCellum said the GLC
planned to incorporate natural
gas and utilities into the homes
so the city could recoup from
their investment
Once the appropriate paper-
work is in order the request
will have to be brought before
city council.
Lee then updated the com-
mittee on the recently received
$750,000 Community Develop-
ment Block Grant. The money,
which once administrative fees
are taken out will be approxi-
mately $625,000, will be used to
rehabilitate 10 homes for low to
moderate income families in

EDITORIAL


FFA gets


boost for


the future

he Columbia Cattleman's
Association is doing a good
thing by assisting the Fort
White Future Farmers of
., America chapter in
obtaining a small herd of cattle. The
chapter is growing and there is a need
and an interest in raising cattle among
the members of the group.
With the 4-H programs in Columbia
County flourishing and preparing many
students for advanced agricultural
.experiences, the growth of the Fort
White FFA programs seems like a step
of natural progression.
The cattle are a needed asset to help
the students and the program gain
more knowledge and experience.
The cooperation from the cattleman's
- association shows the commitment to
sharing the particulars of an industry
with students who might make
ranching a career after high school.
Cattle cost money and the donation
of these animals shows a major
commitment. With the proper tutelage
and the continued support of the
cattlemen, the Fort White FFA program
should be set for many years to come.
This is a great example of the private
sector working to help the school
district, a public institution, and the
children that may help boost the future
of cattle ranching in Columbia County.

CO MOMENTARY


Oh, what a sweet season!


By BARBARA POLICHETTI
The Providence Journal
N o matter how
many gifts were
stacked under the
tree when I was a
kid, Christmas
was never complete until my
sister and I had burrowed
through our stockings and
found the confections we had
come to expect
There simply had to be a
candy cane hooked over the
top of each stocking's fuzzy
cuffs and bulky Lifesavers
"Storybooks" stuffed inside.
Also, before our fingers found
the fresh navel oranges that
always filled out the stockings'
toes, we knew we would snag
mesh sacks filled with
foil-wrapped chocolate coins.
There were other sweet
traditions. We could always
count on at least three boxes
of Russell Stover candy -
wrapped in festive
poinsettia-covered cellophane
- arriving at the house as
family gifts during the holiday
season. And although my
grandmother always had
Russell Stovers to offer us all
year long, my sister and I
never quite got the lay of the
land when it came to the
interior organization of those
bonbon boxes, and we
inevitably ended up biting into
fluffy creams when we really
wanted the tug of nougat.
At home, this led to a lot of
rustJing through the choco-
late's crinkly waxy cups and
lots of nibbling and spitting -
all of which would infuriate
my mom, who would
immediately confiscate the
box and remind us that
these were "fine chocolates"
that were not to be wasted.
She also diligently guarded
the seasonal boxes of ribbon
candy that were kept in the
dining-room buffet and
handled as if they were
religious relics.
If we wanted a piece, my
mother would reverently take
one box off its shelf and
carefully place it in the center


OTHER


of the dining-room table
before we were allowed to
pluck one of the colorful
ruffled confections from the
nest of corrugated cardboard
that kept it from smashing
into a million pieces. Taste
mattered, but the true
measure of quality was just
how thin it was, and we would
debate in detail how one batch
compared to the next and
which candy house had the
finest touch.
Visits to the homes of
friends and relatives revealed
that Christmas candy
traditions were as individual
as other holiday practices,
whether it is a penchant for
blue bulbs in the electric
window candles or a real pine
tree in favor of a shiny
metallic model.
Peanut brittle and
gumdrops would fill platters
and covered crystal candy
dishes in some homes, while
others would have bowls and
jars shimmering with silver
Hershey's kisses. Rum balls
and homemade fudge could
also be found in abundance,
while New Year's Eve seemed
to prompt people to open up
their stashes of the more
sophisticated Andes and
After Eight chocolate-mint
confections.
A search of the Internet
finds no consistent accounting
of how we came to incorporate
candy into the Christmas
season. Maybe it stems from a
time when pine trees were
decorated with cookies and
other sweets around the time
of the winter solstice. Maybe
the Dutch had a hand, with
their tradition of giving
children giant chocolate
letters that spell their names
or initials at Christmastime.
Maybe it all started with the
candy cane that ostensibly had
humble beginnings in the 17th
century as a simple white
sugar stick used to hush
children during long church
services.
Or maybe it's simply
because the days are short,
the weather is cold and we


need something to soothe our'
sensibilities.
Whatever the origins of
the Christmas candy, it's a
combination that is clearly
here to stay.
Christmas is the
third-biggest holiday for the
nation's candy makers,
according to the National
Confectioners Association.
(First and second are
Halloween and Easter,
respectively.)
This year, winter holiday
sales are expected to total
$1.4 billion, according to
spokeswoman Susan Fussell,
at the association's Virginia
offices.
"There really is no definitive
story about how it all began,"
she said. "It seems that at
Christmas, the traditions are
very personal and individual
and are customs that have
been passed from one
generation to another. What
is common for one family
might be completely unknown
to another."
A 2004 survey by the
association found that
chocolate is the favorite
food gift that Americans
like to receive, while the
much-maligned fruitcake
came in last.
The association, which
works to promote the candy
industry from mom-and-pop
shops to corporate giants such
as Hershey and Cadbury -
says Dec. 26 is National Candy
Cane Day. And in case anyone
is wondering, 1.76 billion candy
canes are made each year -
enough to stretch from Santa
Claus, Ind., to North Pole, Ark.,
and back 32 times.
Statistics aside, it's a simple
fact that candy was always
part of our holiday festivities,
and the tradition has been
heralded in prose, poems and
song lyrics.
So let sugarplums dance in
your head, keep your spirits
merry and light and may all
your Christmases be sweet.

COMMENTARY


Celebrating


this giving


time of year


They also seem to be the most
cheerful with their heart in the
right place and with their frame
of mind adjusted during this
wonderful Christmas season.
I noticed this as I rang the bell for a few
hours as a Rotary Club of Lake City bell
ringer volunteer at the Salvation Army kettle
in front of Wal-Mart earlier this week. It was a
heart-warming experience to chat with
Columbia County residents who approached
and dug deep
in their pockets
for greenbacks
and spare ,
change.
I tell this
story not to
draw attention
to me, but to Todd Wilson
salute the twi!son@Jakecityreporter.com,
community in
which we all circulate.
I positioned myself near the entrance doors
and made the effort to make eye contact and
greet nearly everyone who entered the store.
"Hello, sir."
"Good afternoon, ma'am."
Sometimes something simpler:,"How are
you today?" or just "Hello."

We're a blessed people
in a blessed country
and most of us have much
more than the necessities.
We all can afford to give
something back.

I believe it's common courtesy to thank
someone for making the effort to donate and
every donation received a "thank you" and
"Merry Christmas" response from me.
Sometimes ringing a bell at this time of
year is viewed as having leprosy. Some people
want to avoid eye contact or any type of
connection as they wall into the store. Cell
phones whether in use or not often
serve as a crutch for this act. Others look
away, feign a coughing attack or dig in their
purse.
But most people, even the ones
half-heartedly trying to ignore their inner
call to help others, responded to the greeting.
People in Columbia County sometimes get
labeled as being circular not willing to
allow newcomers into their group and cold
to strangers. Ninety percent of the people I
greeted were ones I had never seen before.
Nearly all of them smiled and returned the
greeting.
Most people did the right thing, too. Some
donated to the kettle on the way inside; others
discarded their change on the way out.
Children dropped coins and folded money and
many parents took the time to explain to their
little ones the meaning of their donations.
Some shoppers had their consciences get
the best of them. They walked outside the
store, pushed their cart to the edge of the
sidewalk and stopped. Then they turned,
came back and made a donation.
Men with ponytails and some with doo-rags
rolled out the cash and filled the kettle with
the biggest smiles and the heartiest laughs of
Christmas cheer. Others who looked as if they
have the least, often gave the most.
The more tattoos, the bigger the donation.
One well-dressed woman who appeared to
be in her late 40s, walked up, smiled and
praised the Salvation Army for its efforts
around the world. "One Christmas when I was
a kid, Santa Claus came because of the
Salvation Army. I'll never forget it." She
shoved a wad of cash into the kettle.
Many promise donations when headed
into the store once they get change. Most
delivered with coins clinking in the kettle.
Columbia County is a giving community
and this year, the charitable effort of many
organizations is stretched thin. All the
charities in the area are reporting a greater
demand and fewer resources to meet these
needs.
We're a blessed people in a blessed
country and most of us have much more
than the necessities. We all can afford to give
something back.
And there's still time.
Whether you have ink on your arm or not,
roll up your sleeves, dig deep in your pocket
and give to the charity of your choice. The
need is ever-present, and you can make a

that can be deeded to family
members.
No more than two special
family lot permits shall be
issued on parent parcels of
less than 15 acres (10 acres
were originally proposed);
three on parent parcels of
15 (10 were originally pro-
posed) but less than'20 acres;
and four on parent parcels
greater than 20 acres.
Carmen Mikulic argued that
the restrictions placed a bur-
den on families who wish to
have their children or other
family members near them.
Mikulic said that she
believed that "these rules are
against family values."
Stewart Lilker said that
the land use regulations
should be followed and land
owners shouldn't be allowed
to subdivide their land into
half-acre lots.
The board voted to consider
the objections and charged
County Planner Brian Kepner
to go back to the drawing
board and design an amend-
ment taking into consideration
the objections voiced at the
meeting.
The special temporary use
permit generated public debate
as well.
"I think the board should go
back to the method used in
1986 when individual requests
for temporary use permits
were heard on a case-by-case
basis," Lilker said.
The board again carried the
debate over to the second
hearing scheduled for Jan. 3.
In other business, the
board approved the regular
land use amendment change
from residential low density
(less than or equal to
2 dwelling units per acre) to
light industrial (a new land use
classification).
Of the three small land
use amendments, two were
approved and the third,
requested by Nick Karantinos,
was denied.
Karatinos had requested a
change from very low density
(less than or equal to 1 dwelling
unit per acre) to residential low
density (less than or equal to
2 dwelling units per acre).

inside along with heavy har-
nesses and leashes, according
to reports.
The second SUV, in which
the driver had fled, also con-
tained an injured dog. Both
dogs were taken to the Lake
City Animal Shelter and
Columbia County Sheriff Bill
Gootee was unsure of their
status Thursday.
In addition, $24,000 in cash,
a set of scales and a betting
ledger were obtained from fur-
ther investigation of the vehi-
cles. Deputies later found an
arena, a concession stand, a
generator for power arid light-
ing and several large vats of
water in a field that would not
be visible from the roadway.
Gootee said his agency has
called in the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement to assist
in the investigation and is
unsure how widespread this
problem is in Columbia County.
"I think, from our stand-
point, this looks like an isolat-
ed incident," he said.
"However, with these individu-
als being from out of the coun-
ty, we think this could be a pos-
sibly larger, .more well-organ-
ized group and the FDLE
is going to conduct a more
in-depth investigation."
Gootee said he was not sure
of Belvin and Williams'
involvement in the activity and
if they are possible organizers
or were only participants.

driving because we appreciate
this community."
Accompanying the staged
accident scene is a sign
encouraging driver's to "be
safe; don't drink and drive."
The inspiration for the sig-
nage may have been garnered
from a letter to the editor in
Tuesday's Lake City Reporter,
written by Gina Busscher of
the Florida Department of
Transportation.
"Our local Community
Traffic Safety Team launched
the 'Celebrate Safely' project
to publicize the importance
of not drinking and driving
this holiday season," Busscher
said.
Also mentioned in the letter,
Busscher suggested to busi-
nesses that they "use their
roadside signs to display a
'Celebrate Safely,' 'Designate a
Driver,' or 'Don't' Drink and
Drive' message through New
Year's Day.

A tale of

Christmas

anthems

about a sort of
sensory overload.
The sight of
Christmas lights
and decorations, the smell of
baked apple pies and of
course, the sound of
wonderful Christmas cheer.
Christmas music has
always had a special place in
my heart I don't know if it
was because I grew up
listening to it while riding
with my parents at a young
age, or I played that Alvin
and the Chipmunks
Christmas cassette one too
many times. Either way, the
day after Thanksgiving
begins a month-long
bombardment of Christmas
tunes in my house that
we've likely all heard.
Of course, I do like to
have a little variety among
my songs. There's only so
many times you can listen to
Bing Crosby's "It's
Beginning to Look a Lot
Like Christmas" before you
feel the need for something
different.
So, in addition to some of
the classics, my playlist is
littered with other assorted
holiday tunes. Obviously, my
previous mention of the
Chipmunks Christmas
should give you some idea
that a couple of those songs
appear on my iTunes playlist
that regularly plays when
I'm home.
And we're talking about
the old Chipmunks, not the
soundtrack from the new
CGI-animated movie. Yuck.
I've written about the
musician Kevin Max a few
times before and tracks
from his CD "Holy Night"
are prevalent among my
current playlist. Max has a
rich, unique voice that fits
well with traditional songs
such as "0 Holy Night" and
"What Child Is This." While
they are traditional
Christmas tunes, Max
makes them his own using
his distinctive and
overpowering vocals that
even some of the legendary
singers can't attest to.
Of course, there are those
certain "new" Christmas
songs that likely shouldn't
exist and, rather than
S bringing joy to the listener,
evoke other, more
loathsome thoughts. At last
check, Toby Keith has
released a Christmas CD,
words that shouldn't be
uttered in the same
sentence.
And it isn't just singers or
bands I detest. I enjoy the

released holiday singles that
just... I'll just say Maroon 5
can't hold a candle to John
Lennon in "Happy
Christmas (War is Over)."
Just because it's
Christmas doesn't mean
every popular singer or
group needs to release a
holiday CD. The songs need
to convey the spirit of fervor
and happiness, not "we're
singing this to make
money."
Although, in reality, isn't
money what Christmas has
really evolved into?
But that's a rant for
another time.
I hope everyone has a
Merry Christmas.

A football

family
O n Oct. 3, 2003,
Columbia High
quarterback
Colt Green
was blind-sided
by a Jones High defender.
Colt completed the pass for
a touchdown, but suffered a
dislocated shoulder in the
process.
Colt's dad, Danny Green,
experienced a similar
feeling last week when he
was told he would not return
as head coach for the Tigers.
The Greens Danny,
Pam, Todd, Corey and Colt
took Colt's injury in
stride. He rehabbed and
returned to the starting
lineup later in the season,
as Columbia made it to the
state semifinal.
It was the ninth
consecutive trip to the state
playoffs for CHS under
Green and the seventh time
the Tigers advanced to the
third round or better. Since
returning to Columbia,
Green's teams have made
two more postseason trips.
The Greens were able to
deal with the injury
because, as Green once
said, "We have just always
been a football family."
It is a family which
understands football in all its
highs and lows. The same
outlook will carry them
through this latest situation.
Corey is head coach at
Hamilton County High and
he may wind up with the'
best volunteer assistant in
the state.
Green began his
coaching career in 1970 and
has been a head coach for
26 years. He was named
Coach of the Year for his
school's classification three
times, while accumulating
more than 200 wins.
In the 12 years of calling
opposition coaches for game
previews, one constant is
their comments on the class
program ran by Green.
People may disagree with
his philosophy or
play-calling, but there has
never been any talk of
impropriety.
Green's football fortitude
goes back to when he
played in the mid-1960s.
The football lines are
blurred now, but in those
days the varsity and junior
varsity teams were totally
separated. The varsity
practiced behind the new
high school (now Richardson
Middle School), while the JV
was relegated to the area
around Memorial Stadium.
In my freshman year,
Green was one of three
juniors who were on the JV.
All three gutted it out and
started on the varsity their
senior year.
As one who became a JV
junior and gave up football,
I have always had great
respect for those guys.
There was no bus to take
JV players to the stadium
and this was before every
kid was issued a car, so we
had to find a way to keep
from walking. Green had an
old car and we would pile in
like a clown car in the
circus. It was a good ride.
Following the Tigers
since 1995 under Green has
been a great ride.

Lake City's Jackson claims Europa Cup medal


Bobsledding team
earned silver with
time of 1:57.92
By AMANDA BIRD
Special to the Reporter
CESANA PARIOL, Italy -
Lake City's Jamia Jackson and
Jazmine Fenlator of Wayne,


N.J. teamed together for a
silver medal performance in
the Cesana Pariol, Italy
Europa Cup competition on
Sunday.
"Jamia's silver medal in
Cesana was an unbelievable
finish," women's bobsled
assistant coach Bill Tavares
said. "We weren't surprised,
and we're excited to watch


both Jamia and Jazmine
continue to improve this
season."
After a short stint as a push
athlete, Jackson moved into
the driver's seat and claimed
the 2007 America's Cup title,
while this is Fenlator's first
year on the team.
'We're going in the right
direction with our elite


development program,"
Tavares said. "Converting
push athletes that show an
aptitude for driving into pilots,
has proven to be an asset ito
our program."
The American duo pushed
a solid 5.56 start time for the
third fastest run of the second
heat, a 58.81. Pushing a
consistent 5.57 start time in

- Supermarket Santa keeps

. girl's holiday hopes alive


DEAR ABBY: While my
daughter and I were at the
.- supermarket, we ran into
Santa at the deli! You can't
imagine my daughter's
* surprise not to mention my


own.
*- a There he was, with his per-
S -- - - fect bowling ball head and full
- -- white beard. He had a jolly big
S - belly, rosy cheeks, even small
* * square wire-framed glasses.
S-Ow He wasn't dressed in his tradi-
m -- tional holiday outfit; he was
*- a casually dressed.
- .* -- My daughter, who is 9, had
-- started having serious doubts
- about Santa last year, but she
-- sure does believe now. She
- *s** ran up to him and said, "I
so W am knew it! I knew you were real!
am Where's your sleigh? Where's
your reindeer?"
- The man winked at me,
---. - looked down at my daughter
and said, "Sweetheart, they're
b m* -* at the North Pole. I'm in the
-- area checking things out
* before Christmas." Then he
S*d. asked her if she had been a
- =. good girl. When she said yes,
he advised her to write him a
letter. It was wonderful.
-- I know some people don't
-- believe, and I know some feel
it is technically lying to chil-
dren, and not everyone shares
* * the same religious beliefs. I
t ft respect their right to celebrate
the holidays in their own way.
,, I grew up poor. I knew
S- when Christmas morning
came it would be no different


~. ~

than the year before on
Christmas Day there would
be nothing. I missed out on so
many wonderful things in my
childhood.
Like many parents, I want
my kids to have the childhood
I didn't have. I studied hard,
got a good education, met a
wonderful man and married.
We have two beautiful daugh-
ters, 9 and 11. We're not rich,
but we're comfortable and
don't want for much.
Every Christmas, my chil-
dren and I go to the local mall
and visit the Orphan Tree.
Each of them chooses an
orphan and buys him or her
whatever is on his/her list. I
explained when they were
younger that sometimes even
Santa needs a helping hand. I
also point out how fortunate
they are and when you are
fortunate, you must give
something back.
To you and your readers:
Whether you choose to
believe or not I wish you
happy holidays. STILL A
BELIEVER IN OHIO


DEAR STILL A BELIEV-
ER: It is a wise parent who
not only enjoys the holiday
season, but also uses it as a
teachable moment to show
children the true spirit of
giving to others. Happy holi-
days to you, too and to my
readers as well.
DEAR ABBY: My friend
"Phil" books an annual trip
every year for a closely knit
group of 12 friends. We pay
him by check and eventually
receive flight schedules, hotel
reservations, etc.
We have recently learned
that Phil receives about $500 a
year in perks and credit card
points for booking these trips.
He never mentioned it to any
of us. Instead, he makes
believe that we're indebted to
him for his service.
Isn't it customary and ethi-
cal to redistribute such money
to everyone in one form or
another? Should we confront
him about this? COUSIN
ROB IN NEW YORK
DEAR COUSIN ROB:. I
see no reason to confront Phil.
Nor do I see why he should
compensate you and the oth-
ers for any money he received
for doing all the work of
arranging the trips. The
arrangement you have
described is not uncommon.
