Last-minute shoppers out in full force


Reasons vary why
people still shop
on Christmas Eve.
By MICHAEL MITSEFF
mmitseff@lakecityreporter.comrn
Even the Lake City Mall
Santa Claus took off the day
before Christmas most
likely to prepare for his night-
long trek delivering
Christmas gifts to dreaming
little girls and boys but last
minute shoppers were still on
the job Monday afternoon.
"Sometimes you forget the

list and then you go shopping
for one or two items like me,"
said Cynthia Gonzales. "I for-
got two names on my
Christmas list; but I'm really
glad the stores are open today."
Last-minute shoppers like
Gonzales had good reasons
.for being in the stores on
Christmas Eve, and their
responses to why they were
out shopping at the last


minute varied.
"It's the man's fault because
I was done yesterday," said
Topeka Andrews."Last-minute
shopping is crazy because I
really don't want to be here at
this moment in time.
"You're supposed to spend
this day at home preparing
Christmas dinner and getting
ready to open gifts tonight."
Andrews said she was shop-

wouldn't get up and go shop-
ping Sunday, instead she had
to visit the mall the day before

By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.com
Most children have spent the last
364 days dreaming of this morning
- Christmas.
Woodrow Faulkner, a local
10-year-old, is no different.
Woodrow had already made his
Christmas gift list for this year,
dreamed of the
toys and games he
would get for
Christmas and
made plans to play
with his brothers,
sister and other
family members.
Faulkner Woodrow, how-
ever, was severely burned in an
explosion while playing with a
lighter and gasoline on Dec. 11. He
had second- and third-degree burns
to 60-65 percent of his body as a
result of the explosion.
He remains at the Shriners Burn
Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he
has been treated for the past two
weeks.
Despite his injuries, Woodrow's
mother, Patty Gaines, said he is excit-
ed' about Christmas and even took a

EDITORIAL


Yes,

Virginia,

there is a

Santa Claus
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
editorial, among the most famous ever
written, appeared in The New York Sun
in 1897 and remains appropriate for this
holiday season 110 years later.
Is there a Santa Claus?
We take pleasure in answering at
once and thus prominently the
communication below, expressing at the
same time our great gratification that its
faithful author is numbered among the
friends of The Sun:
Dear Editor! I am 8 years old.
Some of my little friends say there is
no Santa Claus.
Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun
it's so." Please tell me the truth: Is
there a Santa Claus?
Virginia O'Hanlon.
115 West Ninety-Fifth Street
Virginia, your little friends
are wrong. They have been
affected by the skepticism
of a skeptical age. They do
not believe except they
see. They think that nothing can be
which is not comprehensible by their
little minds. All minds, Virginia,
whether they be men's or children's,
are little. In this great universe of ours
man is a mere insect, an ant, in his
intellect, as compared with the
boundless world about him, as
measured by the intelligence capable
of grasping the whole of truth and
knowledge.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
He exists as certainly as love and
generosity and devotion exist, and you
know that they abound and give your
life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how
dreary would be the world if there were
no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as
if there were no Virginias.
There would be no childlike faith
then, no poetry, no romance to make
tolerable this existence. We should have
no enjoyment, except in sense and
sight. The eternal life with which
childhood fills the world would be
extinguished.
Not believe in Santa Claus! You might
as well not believe in fairies! You might
get your papa to hire men to watch in
all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to
catch Santa Claus, but even if they did
not see Santa Claus coming down, what
would that prove? Nobody sees Santa
Claus, but that is no sign that there is
no Santa Claus. The most real things in
the world are those that neither
children nor men can see. Did you ever
see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of
course not, but that's no proof that they
are not there. Nobody can conceive or
imagine all the wonders there are
unseen and unseeable in the world.
You may tear apart the baby's rattle
and see what niakes the noise inside,
but there is a veil covering the unseen
world which not the strongest man, nor
even the united strength of all the
strongest men that ever lived, could
tear apart Only faith, fancy, poetry,
love, romance, can push aside that
curtain and view and picture the
supernatural beauty and glory beyond.
Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this
world there is nothing else real and
abiding.
No Santa Claus! Thank God! he
lives, and he lives forever. A thousand
years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times
ten thousand years from now, he will
continue to make glad the heart of
childhood.

COMMENTARY


The lessons of Rudolph


I n one of the all time
great episodes of
"Seinfeld," George
Costanza's father leads
off the family's
Christmastime celebration of
"Festivus" by calling for the
annual "airing of grievances!"
I don't celebrate Festivus,
but I do have my gripes at
Christmastime.
No, it's not all the "stress"
of Christmas. I've been cutting
back on that (no Christmas
cards!) and even the "stuff'
under the tree, for a few years
now. Santa agrees with me
that's a fine thing.
And I'm more or less over
the fact that "Merry
Christmas" has been replaced
by "Happy Holidays." I think
the change is silly but I'm no
longer really offended by the
new language. After all, I'm an
evangelical who essentially
treats Christmas as a secular
holiday anyway. Actually, the
early Puritans eschewed it
altogether because it wasn't
called for in scripture, but
thafs another column.
But I'm not over the fact
that both "Scrooge" and
'The Grinch" have decidedly
negative connotations. As in,
"he's a real Scrooge" or "what
a Grinch!"
Hello people, they
reformed! These guys went
through life transformations.
How do we so regularly forget
that? We should be saying,
"What a generous guy he's
a real Scrooge," or "I can't get
over what a sweet fellow he is,
what a Christmas Grinch!
Sheesh. Talk about holding
a grudge.
Another sign of a really
crazy culture? I admit that I
like the Dean Martin version
of "Baby It's Cold Outside."

HIGHLIGHTS
IN HISTORY
Today is Tuesday, Dec. 25, the 359th
day of 2007. There are six days left in
the year. This is Christmas Day.
On Dec. 25, 1818, "Silent Night," written
by Franz Gruber and Father Joseph Mohr,
was performed for the first time, at the
Church of St. Nikolaus in Oberndorf,
Austria.

But my older kids really
listened to the lyrics hot too
long ago and what offended
them? Not that the song is
essentially one long
heavy-handed seduction
scene. Oh no, they tuned into
the real source of outrage.
Forget fornication: ""Mama,
in the song that woman is
smoking a cigarette!"
Sheesh again.
But what has really begun
to bug me this year is
Rudolph. As in "Rudolph the
Red-Nosed Reindeer."
Better put, what I dislike is
how Rudolph is treated. In the
famous Gene Autry hit from
the 1940s, Rudolph is, of
course, shunned by his peers:
"All of the other reindeer,
used to laugh and call him
names; they never let poor
Rudolph join in any reindeer
games."
Do the little deer come to
see the error of their ways?
Do they feel bad because of
how they treated Rudolph?
No. Its just that suddenly
Rudolph becomes useful to
them.
Once they find out he can
lead Santa's sleigh and get the
Christmas show on the road,
wow, suddenly he's their best
friend:
"Then how the reindeer
loved him, as they shouted
out with glee, Rudolph the
red-nosed reindeer, you'll go

OTHER V


down in history!"
Talk about the ultimate in
cynical.
His "friends" decided they
"loved" him? Ha, as my
mother would say, with
friends like that who needs
enemies?
The other night, I watched
the 1964 classic animated
movie, "Rudolph the Red
Nosed Reindeer," with my
kids. Not only does Santa
himself tell Donner he should
be ashamed of himself for
having a red-nosed child
(ouch!) but Coach Comet is
the one who instructs the
young bucks not to let
Rudolph play in any reindeer
games. I'd like to think its all
a big morality play, but when
Rudolph comes back into their
midst at the end of the movie
all we hear from the narrator
is that the deer and elves
started to realize that "maybe
they were a little hard on the
misfits."
Like my mom said...
I guess I should be grateful
times have changed. Maybe
too much. Today Santa would
lose his job because his
insensitive comments would
be all over youtube.com, and
Donner would be sued for
inflicting emotional distress
on a child, but thafs another
column too.
Yes yes, I realize there are
far more important things to
worry about
In fact, one thing I'm
especially thankful for this
time of year? That I live in a
time and place in which I have
such delightfully superficial.
things to gripe about
Merry Christmas!

COMMENTARY


Putting


Christ into


politics

WASHINGTON
Mike Huckabee's politics of piety
appear to be winning the hearts
of Iowa Republicans. He has
acquired a new first name from
the nation's headline writers,
who call him "Surging Huckabee."
But what will voters elsewhere make of
such declarations as "Faith doesn't just
influence me; it really defines me?"
That's vintage Huckabee, a former
Southern Baptist minister and governor of
Arkansas, in a TV ad that helped propel his
rise in Iowa polls. The words "CHRISTIAN
LEADER" then appeared onscreen.
Last week, Huckabee's video Christmas
card made an even more overtly religious
appeal.
The warm-and-fuzzy ad running in Iowa, New
Hampshire and South Carolina carries the
message that
what's most
important in
this season isn't
presidential
campaigning
at all but
Christ
"At this time Marsha Mercer
of year ... what arsa erc er
really matters mmercer@ediageneral.com
is the celebration of the birth of Christ and
being with our family and our friends," he
said. A Christmas tree glows, and "Silent
Night" plays. He wishes a "magnificent
Christmas season" and ends with "God bless
and merry Christmas."
Watch it here:
www.youtube.com/watch ?v=8xn 7uSHtkuA
Viewers more observant than I spotted a
white cross behind-him. Huckabee said it was
just a bookshelf, but critics said it was a.
subliminal message aimed at Christian voters.
Huckabee has every right to wish people a
merry Christmas. As a presidential candidate,
though, his actions are rightly viewed in a,
political context
Huckabee's cheery Christian campaign is
useful politically in Iowa, where half the likely
caucus-goers Jan. 3 will consider themselves
"born again" Christians, according to the
Des Moines Register. His lead over former
front-runner Mitt Romney is due to support
from religious women, pollsters say.
Huckabee's folksy, funny style is attractive,
and it doesn't hurt that he learned to put
down a fork.
But employing religious language and
symbolism is not without risk. In especially the
big states whose primaries follow Iowa and
South Carolina, many people still want to keep
church and state separate. When Huckabee
appeals as a Christian to other Christians, he
creates an "us" that excludes "them" people
of other faiths as well as nonbelievers.
Don't get me wrong. I'm glad Huckabee is
being candid. He does us all a favor when he
shares whafs in his heart and mind. It's good
to know he doubts evolution and favors
teaching creationism in the schools.
Presidential elections are about hiring
someone to lead us. People should be aware
of the principles and vision that will guide the
president although, of course, there's no
guarantee the ideals will be followed.
Interestingly, Huckabee is riding a trend of
melding religion and politics that started
more than a quarter-century ago. The authors
of a new book, "The God Strategy: How
Religion Became a Political Weapon in
America," studied presidential speeches from
Franklin D. Roosevelt to George W. Bush and,
found an "astounding" increase in religiosity.
Scholars David Domke and Kevin Coe found .
that presidents from FDR to Jimmy Carter
mentioned God only about 47 percent of the
time. But since Ronald Reagan's 1980 "crusade"
presidential campaign, presidents have rarely
missed an opportunity to invoke God.
President Bush has mentioned God in
94 percent of his speeches; President Clinton,
93 percent; and the first President Bush,
91 percent, according to Domke and Coe.
Reagan mentioned God in 96 percent of his
speeches.
This year, we know a lot about the spiritual
lives of our presidential candidates. They have
agreed the Bible is the word of God and the
greatest,book ever written. They've pondered
what Jesus would do about capital punishment
and explained how prayer works in their lives.
National polls show a statistical dead heat
among Huckabee, Romney and former New
York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. Romney, in his
speech defending his Mormon faith, tellingly
also affirmed his belief that "Jesus Christ is
the son of God and the savior of mankind."

Christmas.
So is the male or female gender more like-
ly to be found in the mall shopping on
Christmas Eve? According to University of
Florida researchers who surveyed more than
1,000 adults last October about their holiday
shopping habits, it's women.
The survey results proved conventional wis-
dom wrong about men being last-minute shop-
pers. Researchers found that compared to last
year, the last-minute holiday shopping habits of
men and women are statistically meaningless.
"I just needed a couple of last-minute things,"
said Sheila Mathews of Ellisville. "Every once
in a while I find myself shopping on Christmas
Eve, and I want to make sure I get something
for everybody."
Last-minute shoppers slowly filled the mall's
parking lot Monday morning, and by noon the
last-minute crush was well under way.
"Actually, I have most of my shopping done,


"I enjoy every minute of it."

Cindy Sanders,
Baker County resident

but I'm helping my 76-year-old father do his-"
shopping," said Cindy Sanders, a Baker
County resident. "He thinks he has to buy
for everybody, which is about 60 people, and,'
that includes his children, grandchildren,'
great-grandchildren and all his in-laws."
"I enjoy every moment of it," Sanders said.
Some people like to plan ahead, but their vision'
of early shopping doesn't always pan out
"I'm always finished by September," said
James Singleton. "But for the last two or three
years I've been caught up in this.
"I have a girlfriend who likes to do last-
minute shopping, but I don't Next year, I'm"
going back to September," Singleton said.


FAULKNER: Boy has had four surgeries


Continued From Page 1A

picture with Santa Claus.
"He has had four surgeries
since he's been here and he
has to have more," Gaines
said. "God is really blessing
my baby. He's really been heal-
ing and recovering and the
doctors are amazed thaf he's
recovering so soon with the
kinds of burns he had."
She said he didn't have sur-
gery on his lower jaws, chin
and neck because that skin is
healing naturally.
"His identity will be saved,"
Gaines said. '"He's not out of
the woods yet because of infec-
tion and all that stuff. He took


a picture with Santa Claus and
he was all bright-eyed. He's
recovering well."
Though Faulkner is recuper-
ating well, he's not expected to
be home for quite some time.
"Our Christmas is going to
be spent here, in Cincinnati, at
the Shriners Hospital," Gaines
said. "He will be coming home,
but he won't be coming home
anytime soon. The doctors
told me if everything keeps
going well he should be home
by the end of February or the
beginning of March."
A trust fund for the boy has
been established at First Federal


Savings Bank of Florida.

MLK: Observance set for

Jan. 20 at Baptist church


Continued From Page 1A
The Rev. Mark Crutcher, pas-
tor of New Bethel A.M.E.
Church of Pensacola and former
pastor of Mt Pisgah A.M.E.
Church in Lake City, will serve
as the events keynote speaker.
John Mayo, Columbia
County NAACP branch presi-
dent, said the public is invited to
the event
"Dr. King showed us the
way to mend broken fences
and to move on in building this
land rather than destroying it,"
Mayo said. "We thank Dr. King
for being the drum major who
was able and ready to lead our
nation to greater heights


through love and peace."
Glynnell Presley, the local
NAACP secretary, also spoke
of King's influence on society
and his role in history.
"History is made up of sig-
nificant events which shape
our future and outstanding
leaders who influence our des-
tiny," Pressley said. "Dr.
King's contribution to our
history place him in this inim-
itable position. In his short
life, King was instrumental in
helping us realize and rectify
those unspeakable flaws
which were tarnishing the
mane of America,"

I was recently in the hospital for a respiratory
infection and I thought I could manage by myself
I at home. I am much weaker than I thought and
"^ not sure if I am using my inhalers correctly since
they don't seem to offer as much relief as I had
hoped. What can I do?
A : People are surprised at how an illness weakens them. Your inhalers may not
be working for a variety of reasons, which could include improper usage.
Call your physician and let him know how you are feeling. He may want to see
you in his office. Ask your physician if he feels a home health referral may be
appropriate. A nurse can assess your respiratory status between physician visits
and check to see if you are using your inhalers correctly, teach you about your
disease process, and other medications as well as possibly recommend physical
therapy for strengthening if needed.

Q: I am a 56 year old man in good
health. Do I need a colorectal cancer
screening test?


A: YES! Colorectal cancer, or cancer of the colon or rectum is the
second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the US for men and
third leading cause for women. The risk factors: age, personal or family
history of colorectal cancer or polyps, inflammatory bowel disease, and
certain genetic conditions, The contributing factors: lack of physical
. activity, low fruit and vegetable intake, a low fiber and high fat diet,
obesity, alcohol consumption, and tobacco use. Screening tests can also
find colorectal cancer early,. when treatment works best and the chance
for a full recovery is very high. Consult your doctor.

Q What are the advantages of advertising if I can't
L compete with some of the advertised prices?

A :You can advertise the brand names of the merchandise
you handle and cash in on the manufacturers' national
advertising in all media. 'Emphasize reasons, other than price,
why customers like your store- it may be credit, service or the
friendly atmosphere. Newspaper advertising helps upgrade the
impression of your store. It lets you promote the quality and value
of your merchandise.

SMy loved one is receiving chemotherapy.
SIs it safe to be around them?


: Chemotherapy can make a patient's immune compromised,
d thus more susceptible to infections. However, they
should try to keep their lives as normal as possible. This includes
interaction with others, especially loved ones. When one is with
a chemotherapy patient, common sense cleanliness applies. Wash
hands before touching, etc...if you have an illness (e.g. cold or
flu, etc...), it would be best to avoid the patient until you are over
your illness.

S. Will "Subprime" loan crunch affect
0you?
: You've probably hard about some of .the problems associated
with "subprime loans." But will the fallout from these loans
affect your investment strategy? It shouldn't, although the real estate
industry is slumping,, the rest of the economy remains relatively strong.
Furthermore, inflation and interest rates remain low and stable, and
corporate profits still exceed expectations. Consequently, we are still
looking at a relatively favorable investment environment. By sticking
with good investment habits, you may well escape some of the problems
caused by the subprime fallout while you stay on track toward your
long-term investment goals.

Q What is a statute of limitations?


A When a cause of action accrues, it is the period of
time that a party has to file suit before that right is
lost forever. For example, pursuant to Florida Statute
95.11, an action founded on negligence must be filed
within fouryears.

Columbia expects
to see tough teams
on Christmas trip.
By TIM KIRBY
tkirby@lakecityreporter.com
Even Santa Claus could not
come up with an original
gift for Columbia High's
basketball team.
The Tigers are returning to
the Playground Area Shootout
Christmas tournament in Fort
Walton Beach and are facing
another top 10 team in their
mini-bracket.
Pensacola High is' ranked
No. 9 in Class 4A and the two
sets of Tigers are on a
collision course if both win
their opening games.
"Pensacola always has got
athletes," CHS head coach
Trey Hosford said. "We faced
them in the first round of the
playoffs when I played in
1996. I don't know much
about them, but they play
right before us and we will be
able to watch that game."
First, Columbia must get by
Ben Franklin High from New
Orleans. The game is 1 p.m.
CST on Wednesday. Pensacola
opens with McDonogh No. 35
High, also from Louisiana.
Choctawhatchee High is
the host school for the
tournament and is in the
bracket, with Poplarville,
Miss., T.R Miller, Ala., and
Pine Forest High.
Florida high schools Pine
Ridge, Crestview and Gulf
Breeze join Siegel, Tenn., in
the second bracket. Palm
Beach Central High is with

Williams, Cameron Reynolds, Ryan Bell and Kenny Williams. Back row (from left) are assistant coach John Brown, assistant coach Steve
Smithy, Shavar Williams, Julio Viens, Joe Bradshaw, Matt Jerry, manager Curtis Myers and head coach Trey Hosford.


Christian Life, La., Lebannon,
Tenn., and Dickson County,
Tenn., in the third bracket.
"There were a lot of talented
teams last year and that is one
of the reasons I wanted.to go
back," Hosford said. "It is
double elimination and it is
important to win your first
game. That is what we did last
year, then we ran into Rome,
Ga., and Tony Woods."
The 6-11 Woods is a senior
this year and has committed
to Wake Forest.


Playing good teams is
nothing new to Columbia (5-5).
The Tigers have already faced
Top 10 teams Gainesville High,
East Gadsden High and Raines
High.
Columbia is leaving for Fort
Walton Beach at 5 p.m. today.
"I think it is unique that a
high school team gets to
spend Christmas night
together," Hosford said. "It is
an opportunity to go away
together and get to know each
other better. It's about coming


together.
"I told them to spend the
day with their families. That is
what I'm going to do. Holidays
are about being, with family
and I am looking forward to
leaving at 5 p.m. with my
other family.".
Hosford said tournaments
prepare a team for the
playoffs because you have to
win to advance and teams
can't be looking ahead.
Two games are guaranteed,
but the Tigers could prolong


the vacation as long as to
Saturday. There will be trips
to the mall, and maybe the
beach, plus bowling and good
eats.
"We had a really good time
last year and the kids are
looking forward to it,"
Hosford said. "I want to thank
all the people that contribute
to our program.
"It takes money for rooms
and expenses and it would not
be possible without their
donations."

DEAR ABBY: Thank you
for instructing "Pulled in
Two in, California" (Nov. 1)
to stick by her decision to
* * keep a troubled child out of
the system. As a newly
licensed educator, I find the
attitude of the granddaugh-
ter to be indicative of our
times. It appears the girl's
mother has completely
dropped the ball.
Today, sadly, mediocrity is
* the norm. How can we
d expect better from our chil-
dren if those who are sup-
posed to teach them, both at
home and at school, settle for
so little? Grandma should
stand firm. By doing so,
she'll teach her granddaugh-
ter a long overdue lesson. -
TEACHER IN ALABAMA
-- DEAR TEACHER: I
agree with you about the
importance of adults teach-
ing by example. In this case,
it could be the defining
moment in her foster child's
life. Read on:
DEAR ABBY: I .was 18
when my husband's 11-year-
m old sister moved in with us.
Their parents are convicted
drug addicts who never had
time for their children. I
shudder to think about
where "Kim" might be if we
hadn't taken her.
Her parents didn't make
her go to' school because
they didn't feel like getting
up to take her. She had no


Abigail Van Buren
www.dearabby.com
rules and got her own way so
she would leave them alone.
We had a hard time with her
at first because she didn't
want to follow rules.
Kim is now 17, a junior in
high school and has made
the honor roll for the first
time since she was in gram-
mar school. She is learning
that her life is not defined
by her -parents' actions.
She's happy, healthy and
well-mannered, and I'm
proud of her.
"Pulled in Two" is doing
the right thing. Kids can't
control what they're born
into, but we can help them
control what they become by
not giving up on them. -
KIM'S 23-YEAR-OLD
"MOM" IN ARKANSAS
DEAR ABBY: That grand-
mother needs to get herself
to a foster/adoption parent
support group or a therapist
who specializes in adoption.
Her local foster/adoption
agency can provide a contact.
I also suggest Adoptive
Families magazine, which is


online. DIANE IN
CASTLETON, N.Y.
DEAR ABBY: Your reply
to "Pulled in Two" was excel-
lent. It underscored that fos-
ter youth and former foster
youth need stable influences
in their lives. The last thing
that young girl needs is for
someone else to abandon
her, as her mother and for-
mer best friend have.
I want to make you and
your readers aware of a full
five-year scholarship pro-
gram for former foster youth
and emancipated minors. It's
called Guardian Scholars,
and it's at Cal State-
Fullerton. The program pro-
vides housing, tuition and
books to youth who would
likely not otherwise have
the chance to further their
education.
This model is being imple-
mented on campuses
throughout California and in
other states as well. The suc-
cess rate is excellent, and
because my wife works in the
program, we have had the
privilege of meeting dozens
of truly amazing young
people. ROGER K.,
BREA, CALIF.
TO MY CHRISTIAN
READERS: A very Merry
Christmas to you all!
