Blackeyes don't seem to
be bringing much luck
so far to Ms. Teresa Shef-
stad, who has been on a
crusade to get the Coun-
ty Commission to uphold
a controversial decision
by a previous board to
grant her the 50' of right
of way in front of her
property in Suwannee,
known as "Black Eye."

In the presence of her at-
torney Austin Peale, and
two private court re-
porters, Ms. Shefstad
presented the Commis-
sion with a packet con-
taining the documenta-
tion of her efforts to obtain
the unused right of way, go-
ing back'to 2003. The excess
right of way has traditional-
ly been used for boat and
trailer parking, and more
recently, parking for county
equipment.

According to a letter pre-
sented to the
Board by Ms.
Shefstad from "Every ma
then County his ca
Attorney Lind-
sey Lander, the protected
previous Board butl
had voted to
grant her re-
quest for the
additional
right of way, but a "typo-
graphical error" in the
meeting minutes apparently
reduced the amount of right
of way from 50' to 20'. The
current Board has agreed tod
grant her the original 20'
mentioned in the minutes
from 2003, instead of the 50'
that she requested.
The County apparently in-
tends to use the excess right

of way front of Ms Shefs-
tad's property for a parking
area for the proposed boat
ramp.

During the discussion, sev-
eral Suwannee residents
weighed in on their opin-
ions. Sinoma Brown spoke
in favor of granting the ex-
tra right of way, saying '
"We're address-
ing an issue
an's home is that should
istle. It's not have been al-
ready put to
d by a moat, bed." Property
by the law." neighbor Bill
Trew comment-
--Austin Peale ed on Ms. Shef-
stad's plans to
landscape and build a sea-
wall on the property with,
"I think we need to beautify
Suwannee and bring it up to
a certain level."

Suwannee resident Preston
Chavous referenced the
DOT maps from 1949 and
said that "there was never
a-y promise to return that
property (excess right of
way) to any property own-
er....we set a dangerous


precedent...this is going to
turn into a can of worms."

After several statements
concerning the loss of value
,of the property caused by
the proposed boat ramp,
County Manager Mike Cas-
sidy spoke up and said that
contrary to the current
county records and previous
taxation on the property as
commercial, that the North
Central Florida Planning
Council had very recently
re-examined the property
and had determined that
"That property is residen-
tial."

Ms. Shefstad's attorney, Mr.
Peale, strenuously objected
to this, saying that any ef-
fort to "rezone" the property
after the fact would be con-
tentious, and that "If there's
any attempt to change it
(the zoning) we'll be back
before this Commission."
Mr. Peale continued, "Every
man's home is his castle. It's
not protected by a moat, but
by the law."

Deputy Clerk Karen Lev-
erette won the Lions Club
Christmas Basket. When
presented the basket, she
said, "I knew I wouldn't
win; I bought a ticket just
to be nice." The basket
was given to her by Lion
President, Fred Koberlein.
"On behalf of the Lions
club I thank everyone who
purchased a ticket. All of
the funds will be used here
in Dixie County." said
Koberlein. He also thanks
Lion Rosemarie Watson
who contributed to the
basket.

Taking -the train with the Queen

Like so many of us, Queen Elizabeth II of England enjoys
taking a trip to visit family on the occasion of Christmas.
This year, as is her custom, Her Majesty traveled to San-
dringham, her Norfolk estate, to spend the Holiday with her
family The journey takes about an hour and a half by pri-
vate jet:.. wait a minute... there's no place in England that
you can't get to in less than an hour and a half by private
jet! That must have been a misprint. Oh yes, here it is; my
source indicated that the Queen went by commuter train.
You know,- those public conveyances the commoners ride.
But certainly the Queen of England would not lower herself
to commuting alongside the common folk!

Checking further, I discovered that Queen Elizabeth actual-
ly did take the train from London to King's Lynn, Norfolk.
She did ride first class, which costs 44.40 English pounds,
the equivalent of about $27.59 cash American. (Sorry I
couldn't find the symbol for British currency, so I'll just
give the US equivalent from here on out.) Anyway, that's.
only about ten bucks a ride more than going economy class.
The Queen also paid for her trip, though I do believe she's
entitled to a senior citizens' discount. And she also paid the
fare for the half-dozen or so officials who accompanied her.


al& I know what you did this Christmas


S. by Kathy McKinney

S. I've been hearing it everywhere this year: "I
just don't have any Christmas spirit." Maybe
it's the economy, maybe it's because we don't have money (or
credit) this year to buy those four-wheelers, those big-screen
plasma T.V's, and the other expensive trappings of a com-
mercial Christmas. Even my own kid said, "Bah, humbug.
I'm just coming home to drop off my presents. I'm just not
feeling it this year." (What she meant was, she's coming to
get her goodies, of course...the whole joy of just being to-
gether with family on the holiday is totally lost on this kid.
People tell me she'll grow out of it.)

Maybe we've all got a bit of Scrooge in us this year. PerhapsI
it's the worry about the power bill
that is keeping us from putting up "YOU See, Mr
Christmas lights. Maybe we are all
just stressing so much about "big pic- opportunity for me
ture".stuff that it seems too trouble-
some to worry about baking fruitcake so I'e bee
from scratch. I don't know. Whatev-
er it is, we need to knock it off right
now and take some lessons from the Seems we're all *

There are people I know who DO
have Christmas cheer and this col-
umn's for you. Yeah, you. You're a busy lady professional,
working in several counties to make ends meet. You met
that five-year old kid who had never had a Christmas, be-
cause his parents couldn't afford it. I know that you filled
somebody's shed with a Christmas tree and.toys for that kid,
out of your own check book, because your heart is so big
you can't imagine any child not knowing Christmas magic. I
know that you didn't publicize it, tell anybody or use it to
advertise your business. I know who you are and I know
what you did. People like you are the real Santas.

I know about the school group who very quietly raised mon-
ey from friends so that a kid in the group could have pre-
sents. I know about the parents of another kid in that group
whose family this kid has been welcomed into for the holi-
days, because there's not much holiday cheer going on at his
house this year.

I know about you, church lady, and the fact that you're mak-
ing sure that the seniors you know are all getting a hot meal
and a little fellowship on Christmas. I know about those of
you who made sure that our Veterans had a big holiday feast

that the kids never know

is supposed to be about, isn't
it? Giving without worrying

All of these people, and all
the people who are out there
right now, doing great things
for others for no reward,
embody what Christmas
should be.

Thank you all.


My favorite Christmas movie
has always been Bing Crosby's
"The Bells of St. Mary's." Mainly because I love Ingrid
Bergman as a nun, but it has a great story, too. The nuns
are trying to convince rich old Mr. Bogartis to give them his
new building to replace their crumbling old Catholic school.
He's a cranky, irritable man with health issues, and Bing, as
Father O'Malley, convinces him that he'll be remembered by
generations of school children for his "benevolence" long af-
ter he's "dust." That's what motivates him to donate the
building....his own fame. I always thought that was a weak
point in the movie. Anyway, after he gives them the school,
of course his health condition improves, and he changes
from a cranky old miser to a sweet, gentle man who takes a
stray dog to church. Predicatable and sappy, yes, but he gets
true Christmas spirit.

So, if you're one of those Grinchy folk this year, fussing
about wire ties, crowded malls, clamshell packaging and
credit card debt instead of mulling cider and baking ginger-
bread with your family, maybe what you need isn't a higher
credit limit. Maybe trying to give somebody else a bit of
holiday cheer is how you develop your own.
Merry Christmas!


Now, if she hadn't been willing to rough it a bit, she could
have taken the Royal Train. Lots more room and no whistle
stops along the way. That choice would have been made at a
cost of $35,370 to the British taxpayers. Could you just
imagine Henry VIII opting for a means of transportation
that was less opulent than the best coach in the Kingdom?
Or, for that matter, Prince Charles. Or Prime Minister Gor-
don Brown. Both of these gentlemen flew to Copenhagen,
where Prince Charles delivered the "doomsday address" ad-
vising a group of like-minded global warming alarmists
that the planet will sizzle under an additional 3 degrees Cel-
sius by the end of the century if we don't spend billions
and strangle the global economy And each flew aboard his
own private jet, rather than take one of numerous commer-
cial flights available--or even "private jet-pool."

One would think that such frugality on the Queen's part
does not go unnoticed by the British taxpayers, and like-
wise members of Parliament and other public officials. But
then, we have Prince Charlie and the PM.

A further note on the big pow-wow in Copenhagen, where
they're supposed to come up with some grandiose scheme
to solve a problem that, according to recently-released data,
apparently doesn't even exist: The accumulated carbon
emissions from the private jets and luxury limos transport-
ing the big shots to, from and around the event will exceed
those of several third world countries for an entire year.
Seems to me that getting lectured on carbon emissions by
this crowd is sort of like getting a temperance lecture from
the town drunk.

Also of interest, those at whatever level of government who
are in charge of hosting the event turned down an offer of
a semi-load of Christmas trees. It seems
they felt that someone might be offended
by having to look at what could be per-
ceived as a Christian symbol. Please un-
derstand that we're not talking about Na-
tivity scenes, we're talking about trees! I
thought that bunch was supposed to be
promoting policies that would be benefi-
cial to trees. I guess the fashionable con-
tempt for Christianity trumps all other
considerations when these types gather
to agree with each other and argue over

der if even one person attending that '
event bothered to tell anyone they didn't -
like that set of priorities.

Let us at least hope that the Queen gives
Prince Charlie a lecture about squander-
ing the taxpayers' money when he drops
in at Sandringham for Christmas dinner. TH W
Anyway, glad things aren't that crazy THE W9
around here. Merry Christmas. "CHRIS

Charity Begins

At Home

by Belanne Pibal

Part of our current problem
in addressing the healthcare
legislation is that Ameri-
cans are a generous people.
We like to help each other.
We all-recognize that some-
times unexpected circum-
stances can hit the best of
us with a mountain of debt
and no obvious way out. We
want to live by the golden
rule "Do unto others as
you would have them do
unto you" because, by and
large, we believe that if we
help someone else today,
someone else will be better
able to help us tomorrow.
That is an admirable thing.
Many times it is the truth as
well.(That whole pay it for-
ward deal plays very well
into the American ethos.)
The problem comes when we
try to apply that ethos
through the government
rather than
as individu-
als and pri-
vate orga-
nizations.
Individuals
and some
private or-
ganizations
have a
Christian
mandate to
help people
and pro-
r vide chari-
ty Govern-
ments have
a mandate
to govern.

When the
RD IS govern-
WAS. ment gives
,PAL! charity, it
PAL! creates no


reciprocal obligation in the
heart of those who receive
that charity It fosters an at-
titude that, not only is one a
total failure at life who must
be grudgingly rescued by his
or her betters, but that one
is entitled, by the inability
to succeed at life, to that
charity anrd need not pay it
forward by word or deed.
However, if your neighbor
or church steps up and pays
your mortgage for a hard
month, or buys groceries or
Christmas presents for a
family that can't afford
them, that creates a thankful
heart(usually) and a recipro-
cal. obligation to give back to
that neighbor or community
group in some way.

Perhaps the fact that there is
no way to give back to the
government is the culprit.
Instead of a feeling of
thankfulness, thexrecipient
is left with a sense of frus-
tration and failure. With a
neighbor or a neighborhood
church, there are opportuni-
ties to help and return the
favor. Taking on supervision
of the Sunday school class-
es, shoveling the helpful
neighbor's walk in the win-
ter or even sharing some
fresh baking or inviting
them to dinner. This creates
a feeling of fulfillment and
self sufficiency It gives the
recipient .of that charity the
opportunity to demonstrate
to that church or neighbor
that they are someone who
was worthy of such charity
That they understand the
obligations of a community
to care for each other.

This is one of the reasons
that government entitle-
ments and charity are a fail-
ure and degrading to the
overall character of the na-
tion. How does government
charity provide a picture of
community support, self re-


spect, cheerful giving and
true charity when our chil-
dren see their parents grum-
bling over the taxes that are
taken from us to provide
such charity? What message
does it send when they see
the recipients of govern-
ment charity grumbling at
how it should be better or
how it didn't really meet
their needs?

What message does it send
to the children who are sup-
ported by such largesse?
How does that encourage
our children to continue our
tradition of generosity?
When our children see that
those who are providing this


charity (the taxpayers) are
made the poorer by it and in-
voluntarily at that.

Voluntary charity is a bless-
ing for both the provider
and the recipient. Involun-
tary charity is not charity, it
is wealth redistribution. We
the People need to recognize
that, while government may
be a fine vessel for the gov-
erning of a people, it is not a
fit vessel for works of chari-
ty.

By Bonnie Wilson

This week as everyone is
preparing for Christmas we
did not have a scheduled
ride with our Levy County
Horse Club members. Our
scheduled ride is set for De-
cember 27. However Dave
and I did managed to get
away for a short ride at
Goethe State Forest.
The trails wind for 100 miles
through three tracts of
Goethe's nearly 50,000-acre
state forest. You can ride
through pine plantations
and old growth longleaf
pine forest. There is a large
equestrian camp-
ground at the
Tidewater trail-
head off CR 337,
northwest of
Dunnellon, and
trailheads at
Apex and Black
Prong.

Threading through pine flat
woods around cypress
domes, the trail system
ranges from loops of 2.5
miles to 10.5 miles. At Apex
my favorite of the tracts
because of its old-growth
longleaf pines there are
five different loop trails,
from 4.5 miles to 11.7 miles.
At Black Prong, where vast
forests have been mowed
down for restoration of the
forest back to a sandhill
habitat, there are three
marked trails, from 3 to 10
miles in length. This is the
one we will explore more
with our club members next
week.

But today we are at Tidewa-
ter trailhead. The trails are
well marked and easy to fol-
low even if it's your very
first visit. I am afraid I am
not one to be very good at.
leading on a trail as I am not
generally known for finding
my way out of a paper bag.
Having said that I find that I
am very comfortable at
Tidewater. I know these
trails well and as I've said
they are extremely well
marked.

HIGH SPRINGS MAN ARRESTED FOR

DOING SURGERY WITHOUT

LICENSE & BILLING MEDICAID


As we lead the horses out of
the trailer and saddle them
up the weather is quite cool
and our horses are a bit
frisky. It appears they are
anxious to get down the trail
and so am I. So off we go at
a brisk trot. I'm on my "high
horse" Buddy and Dave is
on his palomino Zip. The
horses are feeling their oats
today, eager to lope down the
trail and explore.

Riding in the great outdoors
of Florida is a marvelous
experience as you are all
aware. I would not trade any
of this for any other state.
Sure the mountains out west
are beautiful, but who could
ride there all year long with-
out getting frostbite! I'll,

and ride most of the
year rain or shine or
cold. I always feel
much warmer in the
woods as I ride. I
don't know if it's be-
cause you're en-
closed in the thick
woods or if I'm just
enjoying myself so much
I'm not aware of the cold. In
any case, I do believe Flori-
da has a lot to offer the
equestrian rider under
mostly sunny skies.

Today was a great ride even
though the weather was cool
and a little windy No
boogersjumped out of the
palmetto bushes to disrupt
our ride. Thank goodness I
stayed in the saddle. I sure
would hate to fall off my
high horse! Trust me it's a
long way to the ground.
I guess the deer were hid-
den deeper in the forest, as
we only saw their tracks to-
day

Later as I unsaddled Buddy
and rewarded him with a
cookie, I asked him if he en-
joyed the ride today. He
promptly curled his top lip
up at me, showing his big
teeth as he flopped his big
lips in the air just like he
was laughing at me. Actual-
ly I-think he was just saying
he too enjoyed the ride.

Come along for the next ride
with us and until next
time......happy trails to you!

Prieto is charged with 61

FWC makes two arrests for


fire hunting, taking doe


Officer Bryan Humphries
was patrolling at 12:52 a.m.,
when he observed a light
shining a clear cut. Upon
stopping the vehicle, he ob-
served two subjects with a
loaded 30-30 caliber rifle
and a 12 gauge shotgun in
the front seat. Also in the
bed of the truck he ob-
served blood and deer hair.


The subjects stated that the
blood and hair was from a
spike they had killed earlier
that day. Officer Humphries
followed the subjects back
to their camp, and there he
met with Officers Matt Tyre
and Rodney Boone. The


three officers continued to
interview the subjects, and
through their interview
they discovered that the
subjects had actually killed
a doe deer.

Both subjects were arrested
and transported to the ..
Lafayette County Jail. They
, .both received citations for
attempting to take deer by
use of gun and light, and
for taking doe deer during
the closed season.

The guns, spotlight, and doe
deer meat were seized as ev-
idence.

Academics are at the fore-
front of our attention. Prin-
cipals and Assistant Princi-
pals have visited classrooms
while students have been
taking mid year progress
monitoring tests (TeenBiz/
KidBiz and SchoolNet base-

Science). We will use the re-
sults of these tests to focus
on student needs and
strengths. Academics, espe-
cially FCAT tested areas,
will be our most important
emphasis as we begin 2010.

I would like to encourage all
students, staff and parents
to work extremely hard
these next few months in
preparation for the state

"My First Christmas In Heaven"
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like.Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas .
choir up here. I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices
bring. For it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart
But I am not so far away, We really aren't apart.
So be happy for me, dear ones, You know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do.
For I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ
this year.

From COMMISSION, pg 1

Suwannee resident Donna
Warren asked, "Where are
the people supposed to park
who come in with larger
boats?" Chairman Hunt
replied that "That's another
issue." He continued that
he wasn't prepared to vote
on granting the right of
way, saying that "I honestly
believe we need to step back
and look at what's before
us." Commissioner John-
son agreed, saying that 'I'm
not going to vote on it until I
consult with
the attor-
ney"

Commis-
sioner Hig-
ginbotham "
said that
"The only
people we've
given right
of way to ,
was to peop-
ple when it
was no
longer of
use to the
county." Ms.
Shefstad Lakei
voiced her dis- Lake Ci
pleasure at the Aust
delay saying
that "I've been before this
Board numerous times, and
quite frankly, it's getting ex-
pensive for me." Chairman
Hunt replied that "I respect
what you're aying and I un-
'derstand where you're com-
ing from. If I was going to
vote, which I'm not, I'd do it
based on the actions of the
previous Board."

The Commission then voted
to table the subject until the
first meeting on January on
the 7th at 10:00 am.

Ms. Shefstad stuck around
for the next discussion of
the proposed boat ramp im-
provements at Demory
Creek. She protested the
plans, saying that "It entails
blocking the entire access to
my property" She contin-' .
ued speaking against the.
boat ramp, saying that "For
the county to compete with
marinas by offering free or
discounted boat ramps," has
a negative impact on the
economy of Suwannee, and
that it "needs to be studied."

Suwannee resident Lillian
Smith stood up and said,
"She knew when she bought
that property- that she was-
n't going to get that fifty -
feet. There's no sense in her
harassing ya'll. It (the
transfer of the 20' of right
of way) was not advertised,
it was not legal. I told her
that in the bathroom."

In order to allow for more
public comment on the pro-
posed boat ramp, a work-
shop was scheduled for
Wednesday, January 6th
at 5:00 at the Suwannee
Community Center. Phil
Bishop of Bailey, Bishop
and Lane, County Engi-
neers, said that the plans for
the Demory Creek boat


ramp will be presented at
the town hall meeting.

The Commission then
moved on to other topics, in-
cluding the happy news that
Mr. Jerry Prater would be
getting out of the hospital
and that all county roll-off
sites that are normally
scheduled to be open on Fri-
day will be open on Christ-
mas Day to better allow resi-
dents to dispose of Holiday
garbage.

tor Tim

sion know

a reverse 911 system should
be ready about the same
time.

County Attorney Jennifer
Ellison appeared to update
the Commissioners on the.
progress of ongoing law-
suits, including the "Ten
Commandments". case. The
report said that the ACLU
has filed a "Motion for Sum-
mary judgment" arguing
that the case does not need
to go to jury trail because
"by law" the monument is
illegal. The County is being
defended by Liberty Coun-
sel, who has filed a memo-
randum of law arguing
against the motion. Ms. Elli-
son states in the report that
she doesn't feel that a hear-
ing will actually take place,
and that the case will most
likely go to trial next sum-
mer.

She also updated the Com-
mission on two pending ac-
cident cases resulting from
"the Mike Gantt" accident
and another case where Kim
Lashley fell at the Jena Roll-
Off site. All three accident
cases are being settled by an
insurance company

The report also included a
statement on the recent set-
tlement of the River Shores
vs. Dixie County lawsuit,
saying that "there may be
future potential claimants,
the county is working on
and has made changes to
the comprehensive plan in
accordance with the settle-
ment to hopefully prevent
any more 'winnable' cases."
After wishing everyone a
Merry Christmas, the Com-
mission adjourned.

iMMmarw mar Q"te cvutrrt4Anderson Students of the Month


Our family tradition for
Christmas Day is we get up
and open our gifts. Then my
Mama and Daddy come over
and we open gifts with them.
Then I cook breakfast.
Every year I look for easy
but special recipes. This is
one of my favorites.
I have named them Whom-
pum Biscuits. This name
came about because you use
refrigerated biscuits in the
tube which you have to
"whomp" on the counter to
open.

WhkOIw'pm.m "5.ls.(LtS
1 tube Grands Biscuits
% cup sugar
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
1 stick melted butter
Jelly

Grease your 9 X 13 baking
pan and preheat your oven
to 350 degrees. Put your
melted butter in a bowl. Mix
the sugar and cinnamon in
another bowl. Take each bis-
cuit and dip the top into the
butter and then into the sug-
ar cinnamon mixture. Place
into your baking pan with
the sides barely touching.
Place a % tsp of jelly in the
Center on top of each bis-.
cuit. Bake until brown about
25-30 minutes. Watch them
so they don't overbrown.
This recipe makes 8 bis-
cuits.
Now these measurements
are approximate. If you like
more cinnamon add more. If
I have any cinnamon sugar
mixture or butter left over I
just sprinkle it over the bis-
cuits before I bake. Use your
favorite jelly. I made some
peach jelly this year that is
really good. If your family


India Martinez wins
essay contest :.
Students in Dixie, Gilchrist,
and Levy middle schools re-
cently participated in the
Patriot's Pen Writing Con-
test sponsored by the Veter-
ans of Foreign Wars and
Ladies Auxiliary The topic
of the writing contest was,
"When Is the Right Time to
Honor Our Military He-
roes?" Sixth and seventh
grade students at Ruth
Rains Middle School entered
the contest. India Martinez,
a student in Mrs. Hurst's
sixth grade advanced lan-
guage arts class, won second
place honors. India received
a $100.00 check from the lo-


has different tastes just
make a flavor for each mem-
ber. Use the big biscuits. I
have tried this with the
smaller ones and it just
doesn't taste the same.

If eggs, grits, bacon or
sausage is also on your
menu...well, I have a confes-
sion. I normally do not like
grits. My husband is usually
glad just to get a packet of
the instant grits if he gets
any at all. Until I found this
recipe. It only takes 30 min-
utes but these grits are so
creamy and delicious I love
them!

cri.ts
2 Cups water
1 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 Cup quick cooking (not in-
stant) grits
% cup butter

Bring water and salt to a
boil and add milk...watch
your pot so it doesn't boil
over.., slowly add grits stir-
ring constantly Cover and
lower temperature and cook
30 minutes stirring fre-
quently. Add more water if
necessary Grits are done
when they reach a smooth
and creamy consistency Stir
in butter and serve.


When you are making your
holiday casseroles try using
Panko bread crumbs in the
place of your regular top-
pings. You can find them in
the same isle as the bread
crumbs. Panko bread
crumbs have a crispy light
texture that doesn't get sog-
gy Even leftovers retain

of you, India! Pictured be-

daughter of Marisol Reyes of
Cross City, with one of the
local VFW members present-
ing her with the prize at
Ruth Rains Middle School.
India's paper read as follows:

When Is the Right Time to
Honor Our Military Heroes?
On Veteran's Day we
remember the men and
women who have served in
the military Even though
it's only one day, we should
remember to keep them in
our daily prayers. And not
just the Veterans of the past,
but the people who are cur-
rently in the military now.

some crunch. I use them in
the place of cracker crumbs
for my casserole toppings
and as an alternative to
heavy sticky breading for
pan frying. If you try them I
promise you won't go back!
One more cooking for
Christmas hint. I love to use
fresh ground pepper but it
takes forever to grind
enough with a regular pep-
per grinder. I get my coffee
grinder and use it to grind
up enough pepper for the
day It's quick and easy and
you can make it as coarse or
fine as you need.

I was so excited to hear from
some of you about previous
articles. Jill Thomas let me
know that she has been us-
ing vinegar in her dish
washer and it works beauti-
fully. My mother said the
same thing. I wonder why I
have to put it in print for
her to try it? I have been
telling her about it for years!

I would love to hear from
you. E-mail me any tips that
have made your life easier.
Your favorite recipe. Is there
something you would have
loved to have known when
you were first starting out?
Is there something you did
that you vowed never to do
again? Do you have any
questions about a previous
article? Drop me a line.
Nothing is too small. I will
love hearing from you. We
are all in the same boat.
There will always be empty
bellies and dirty dishes.
Dust on the table and dirt on
the floor. A little bit of h'u-
mor and advice can make
the trip so much easier.

There are simple
but nice ways ,to honor Vet-
erans. One way is to visit
them in nursing homes or
VA hospitals. Another way
is to attend a parade and
show your support. Putting
flowers on the graves of the
Veterans that have passed is
another way of showing re-
spect and support. Hanging
a flag in front of your house,
sending care packages to
military people, writing
them letters, wearing a flag
pin, and even visiting the
Memorial Wall are other
ways you can show your
love, respect, and support.
'There are so many things we
can do that don't cost a lot of
money or take a lot of time.
Volunteering at Veteran's
. Nursing homes or even
inviting a Veteran to speak
to your class are ways we
can learn more about their
lives. *
In our busy days
let's take a moment and re-
member how special they
were even if they aren't
your relatives. Because of
their sacrifice we have our
freedom. No matter who we
are we should be thankful.
We should always remember
our Veterans, not just on
Veteran's Day or Memorial
Day or July 4th, but every
day. Let's show our love,
support, and respect for all
Veterans.

Stuff to Do & Legals


Never Give Up!

ESCAPE FROM A FULL NELSON

A Full Nelson is a |
hold that applies a lot of
pressure on the neck and of-
ten renders the victim help-
less. There are several
ways to escape this hold. In
the case where the attacker
is too overpowering, other
techniques may be needed
but here is one of the first
basic moves which can be
effective most of the time.
Clasp your hands
together and push back against your
forehead. This will relieve some of
the pressure the attacker is putting on
your neck.
Bend your knees and drop
your hips slightly
* Twist around, stepping be
hind the attacker's left leg with your
right leg.
* Push back and twist forceful-
ly raising your arms at the same t ime.
* The attacker will lose balance
and fall backwards

Sometimes the attack-
er will hold on and you both
Will go to the ground. At that
point it is much more difficult --
to keep a full nelson hold. If I
you have learned some ground
fighting grappling maneuvers _
an escape would be easier. If
not, the more you squirm and
forcefully thrash- around the
harder it is for the attacker to
keep his hold. In either case,
do not stop moving until you
are free.

An instructor in a controlled
environment can make sure
you learn self defense without
injury or embarrassment.
Children should not try this
without adult supervision.

And lo, the angel of the Lord
came upon them, and the
glory of the Lord shone
around them; and they were
in great fear. And the angel
said to them, Fear not: for be-
hold, I bring you good
tidings of great joy which
shall be to all people.

For to you is born this day in
the city of Davit a
Savior, who is
Christ the Lord.

--Luke 2


We love you and ask that
you pass this on.
