'ST. NICK SET TO ARRIVE


Santa


Ulaus is



coming



to town

BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
NORTH POLE Get ready
'Calhoun County kids. The
,County Record has con-
-firmed that Santa Claus will
-be coming to town over the
weekend with a sleigh full of
.toys.
"Flu season has not been
-kind to Santa," says a
,spokesperson from Santa's
'Workshop. "However, disap-
pointing millions of children
was not an option. Santa
'held his nose and downed all
sorts of yucky tasting medi-
'cine to get well for the trip
-around the world. The elves
:have been working overtime
,and have already started
:loading the sleigh. The rein-
'deer have been munching on
-corn to bone up for the task
'at hand."
All little boys and girls are
reminded to go to bed early
on Christmas Eve.

HOLIDAY PRANK NO LAUGHING MATTER


Family seeks info on vandals


BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
For years, James and Laura Melton,
known as "Mom and Pop" around
Blountstown, have enjoyed spreading
Christmas spirit from their home on
Juniper Street. However, vandals tried
to rob them of their holiday fun over
the weekend and the Meltons are hop-
ing someone will come forward with
information that leads to an arrest.
The Meltons begin decorating early
each year, filling their yard with a vari-
ety of Christmas displays. Their home
has always been a popular site for
those driving by looking at holiday
lights. In previous years, the Meltons


would have Santa Claus make an
appearance as they invited the entire
community to join them for hot cocoa
and cookies.
This year, the family added an
inflatable carousel to their display,
joining a Santa Claus, the Grinch, and
some snowmen. But some pranksters
decided to ruin their work. "We had
just went to bed around 11:00
Saturday night," Laura recalls. "That's
when I heard some noise." Laura went
outside and heard at least two people
laughing and running away from the
yard. James inspected the scene and
discovered the carousel had been
sliced with a knife. Around 3:30 a.m.,
the vandals returned and the Meltons'


grandson chased them off the proper-
ty. They fled in a white pickup truck.
The family believes they were trying to
remove the inflatables from the yard,
but had trouble since they were tacked
to the ground.
Sunday morning, the Meltons
removed all the inflatables from their
yard. "For someone to do this is unre-
al," says Laura, noting that several
neighbors have not been decorating as
much as usual in recent years, likely
due to similar incidents.
"It takes the joy out of it," says
James.
Anyone with information on this
case is urged to contact the
Blountstown Police Dept. at 674-5987.

AMONG ONLY THREE TO WIN NAllONAL AWARD


coLiberty o. farmer honored


BY BRIAN McGRAW
District Conservationist,
USDA-NRCS
Richard J. Hardy of
Liberty County and Brian
McGraw of the USDA-
Natural Resources
Conservation Service
(NRCS) of Blountstown trav-
eled to Indianapolis,
Indiana, Dec. 5 to attend
the annual meeting ,of the
National Organization of
Professional Black NRCS
Employees. The following
day, at the 2nd Annual
Lloyd Wright Black Small
Farmer Awards Luncheon,
Hardy was honored and
awarded third place nation-
ally.
Mr. Hardy was presented
with a beautiful plaque and
pictures were taken with
the Florida delegation and
Charles Adams, president of
the organization. Other
awards were presented to
Mr. Harvey Williams or
Arkansas (first place), Mr.
Jacob Waddy of Alabama
(second place),, and the


Gwinn Brothers Farm in
Live Oak, Florida (National
Small Farmer Group
Award).
Each year, three Small
Farmers from most states in
the nation are submitted for
the awards. USDA-NRCS
is very proud of Mr. Hardy
and the hard work that he
has done to reduce soil ero-
sion, improve water quality
and animal and plant
health on his farm.
Thursday afternoon,
December 7th, Hardy and
McGraw were glad to land
at the airport in
Tallahassee. When we left
Indianapolis, it was windy,
snow was on the ground,
and the temperature was 19
degrees.
The USDA offices in
Blountstown have been
working with Mr. Hardy for
the past two years to help
him to improve his agricul-
tural operation. Mr. Hardy
was approved for an
Environmental Quality
Incentives Program (EQIP)
contract in 2005, which


provided federal cost-share
funds to help him to
improve forage quality and
the overall health of his live-
stock.
This summer, Mr. Hardy
planted permanent pasture


grass, cross-fenced his pas-
tures, and will soon install a
4 inch diameter well,
pipeline, and troughs to
provide water to his live-
stock in each of his pas-
tures.

CRIME


A second

arrest made

in llth St

meth case
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
Six weeks after a
Blountstown woman was
arrested for manufacturing
methamphetamine out of a
mobile home on 11 th Street,
the man she shared the res-
idence with is now behind
bars.
Jessie Clyde Kelley, Jr.
has been charged with man-
ufacture of meth and posses-
sion of listed chemicals.
Back on Nov. 3, a search
team with the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Office raid-
ed the home occupied by
Jeris Barbee and Kelley. The
search revealed the home to
contain a red phosphorus
methamphetamine laborato-
ry. Dozens of items were
seized as evidence, including
glass meth pipes, thousands
of matches, along with sever-
al match striker plates, acid,
and twelve empty blister
packs of pseudoephedrine.
Kelley was away from
home at the time of the raid,
however, Barbee was taken
into custody and charged
with manufacture of
methamphetamine, along
with possession of listed
chemicals, meth, and drug
paraphernalia.
The evidence had to be
tested to determine if
Kelley's fingerprints could be
found on the items used to
manufacture the drugs.
Following further investiga-
tion, a warrant was issued
for his arrest. He was taken
into custody Dec. 14 and
remained in the Calhoun
County Jail at press time.

LETTERTOTHEEDTO


To the Editor,
The Reason For The
Season
., Are you ready yet?
Christmas is upon us! Are
the house and yard clean and
decorated brightly to show
cheer? Are the gifts all
bought and beautifully
wrapped? Do you have your
meal planned and guests
invited? How about those
cards to be sent Oops late
by now!-~ Hurry hear and
there get it all done. Then a
moment of retrospect, as we
take time to check our list of
duties. Have we gotten
everyone just the right gift?
Have we forgotten anything
or Anyone?
My next questions are riot
at the top of our lists any-
more. Have we remembered
those who have no way to
have Christmas? Have we
thought of those who won't
be home to celebrate with
family and friends or those
who are too sick to share this


BY LINDA WILLIAMS
& ADELA BURT
Mossy Pond VFD & Auxiliary
Boy, this has been a good
weekend! The Christmas
party was great and we had
so many people we ran out of
chairs and tables, so if you
came and had to stand up we
are so glad that you were
here and next year we will
have enough of everything,
and you'll have a chair and
table. .
We Were so glad many peo-
ple gave us toys and other
items. The other items we
will use for people during the
year that are ip need or
someone that has a structure
fire.
Our firefighters are done
with class and back to some-
what normal life, if you can
call a volunteer firefighter's
life normal. I know I say this
a lot but I really want people
to know what they do. They
are oncall 24 hours a day, 7
days a week and 365 days a
year. Now I know that most of
you out there know this. but
until I got active \ith the
auxiliary it didn't sink in my
brain. Plus, they have to fix
the fire trucks and keep them
in good running, order. They
cannot let a truck sit that is
not ready to go.
We have many beautiful
people thls week. Eugene and.
his family for giving so much


year?
Most of all, have we been
too busy .to enjoy and thank
your Lord and Savior? You
know as hard as we try we
will never be able to top. the
gift our Heavenly Father
gave to. us! He gave us his
most prized possession -, His
Only Son!
Why did God give such a
gift? Jesus was given to save
a sick and dying world; there-
fore he was given to fill our
world with peace, love, light,
and joy. Isn't that what it's
all about? Christmas should
give peace, love, light, arid
joy. Please remember to
share out of your abundance
to those who are less fortu-
hate.
So as we are busily'about
the tasks of this Christmas
season, please don't forget
the "real" reason for it!
Peace, Love, Light,
and Joy to all,
Sandra Seaman


tlus season to us. And they
have a beautiful little grand-
S(son, Paul. Georgie Yaudas
gave a painted saw and we
raffled it off for the auxiliary.
Adele Burt won it. We were
giving .an exercise bike and
we raffled it off. A lady from
Mississippi won it.
We from Mossy Pond want
to wish everyone a Merry
Christmas and Happy New
Year and please don't drive
and drink. If you're going to
drink, make plans to .stay
home for your -party and
plenty of places for guests to
sleep.

Time spent in Thomasville
was very fruitful! We enjoyed
their hospitality and spirit
while experiencing a
Victorian Christmas!
Imagine cozy brick walk-
ways, lights twinkling in the
trees and on old fashioned
lamp posts. Even our noses
were entertained by the many
food and beverage vendors
lining the streets! Merchants
stayed open late and their
shops were packed with
shoppers and folks in
Victorian costumes. Carolers
and church groups filled the
air with holiday songs, cafe
tables and park benches
were full. The Serendipity Inn
(Bed and Breakfast) was
wonderful, as Kelli has writ-
ten, and I can see this hap-
pening here, can't you?
Our county has so much
to offer. Help us work togeth-
er to improve what we have
and ensure our area will keep
its rural charm while allow-
ing for some well planned
growth. We need to put our
heads. together and create a
package of benefits/reasons
for small businesses and
entrepreneurs to open up
shop here. This would mean
improved revenue, families
needing a progressive place
to live, being able to offer
high quality competitive edu-
cation and planning for their
retirement here.

Wildcat J. V. and Varsity



post 2-1 record for week


BY JIM McINTOSH

Altha must have thought
they were at the SouthPOLE
instead of at SouthPORT last
Thursday. The Bozeman
Bucks invited the Wildcats
into their Big Freezer that
also doubles as a gym to play
what the fans thought was a
basketball game but it would
have been better suited for a
hockey game. It was C-O-L-
DI
The JV Cats (2-4) tried to
thaw out but couldn't shake
the cold and their shooting
reflected it. They were 9 of
19 in field goal shooting and
3 of 11 from the charity
stripe. They finally suc-
cumbed to the frostbite and.
the Bucks, 30-26.
Ethan Byler was the Top
Cat in scoring with 10 points
as well as 4 rebounds and 2
steals. Andrew Brazell
chalked up 9 points, cleared.
10 boards, and he had 5
blocked shots. Corey
Johnson added 4 points
along with a rebound and a
steal. Ethan Ellis rounded
out the Wildcats' scoring with
a 3-pomter. Ellis was credit-
ed with 3 rebounds and a
steal.
The varsity Cats (5-1)
pulled out a squeaker, 47-45,
At the intermission Altha
had a 25-20 advantage. The
Wildcats held a 35-31 lead at
the end of the third period
but Bozeman pulled ahead
46-44 with 49 seconds left in
the game. Corde Beauchamp
was fouled with 5.7 seconds
left and went to the free
throw line to shoot a 1-and-
1. As the Bucks' player, who
had fouled out when he
fouled Beauchamp, walked
by the referee he made a
remark and was tagged with
a technical foul. Corde sank
his first free ,throw to bring
the Wildcats within a point,
46-45. Then Altha's Kevin
Saldana stepped to the char-
ity stripe and swished the 2
technical foul free throws to
seal the deal for the Cats.
Altha broke through the
ice that seemingly was on top
of the junior varsity's goal by
attempting 15 3-pointers but
sinking only one. However,
they shot 69% (16 of 23) in
the field goal department and
75% (12 of 15) of their free
throws.
Jason Holland .led the
Wildcats in scoring with 17
points. Also, he snagged 8
rebounds and. had 2 steals.
Kevin Saldana added 10
points and he had 3
rebounds. Josh McIntosh
drained 8 points, cleared 6
boards, and he had 6 steals.
Thursday night found the
Wildcats back in the warm
and friendly confines of "The
Den" to face their county-
rival and district foe,
Blountstown.
The JV Cats (3-4) took
care of business and defeated
the Tigers, 31-26.
The "Brothers B", Andrew
Brazell and Ethan Byler both
recorded a double-double in
this game. Brazell was the
Top Cat in scoring with 11
points along with 13
rebounds, 'blocked 2 shots,
and 2 steals. Byler was cred-
ited with 10 pointsas well as
15 rebounds and 3 steals.
Jake Edenfield added 7
points to the Wildcats win.
Also, he had 9 rebounds. 2
steals, and Edenfield blocked
a shot .attempt. Ethan Ellis
swished 1 of his 2 3-point
attempts. Ellis posted 3
rebounds, blocked a shot
"attempt and a steal.
The varsity Wildcats (5-1;
0-1, District 3, 2A) were seek-
ing to notch their first district
win against Blountstown but
they came up on the short


end of the scoreboard, 52-41.
Josh McIntosh was the top
scorer for the Wildcats with
11 points (including a 3-
pointer) and just missed
recording his first double-
double of the season when he
cleared 9 boards. Also,
McIntosh had 4 assists and a
steal. Corde Beauchamp
added 10 points to the Cats'
cause and he drained a 3-
pointer. Also, he had 2
assists, 3 rebounds, and 2
steals. Both Cale Chafin and
Jason Holland chalked up 6
points. Chafin had 3 assists,
3 rebounds, and a steal.

and he had 3 steals and an
assist. Kevin Saldana added
'5 points, he had 5 rebounds,
and an assist. Nathan
Castenada rounded out
Altha's scoring with 3 points
and he had 3 rebounds and 2
assists.
Liberty County came call-
ing on the Wildcats last
Friday night and both of
Altha's boys squads got back
on the winning side of the
ledger.
..Andrew Brazell had a
monster night for the Cats'
.junior varsity team, scoring
34 points'and pulling down
18 rebounds in leading his
team to a 52-47 victory..
Also, Brazell was credited
with 4 blocked shots and. an
assist.
Not only Brazell but all the
Wildcats contributed offen-
sively and defensively, to
their fourth win of the sea-
son. Jake Edenfield racked
up 6 points (including a 3-
pointer) along with 7 steals, 6
assists, and 3 rebounds.
Corey Johnson had 4 points
as well as 4 steals, 2
rebounds and an assist. The
"Double Es"-Ethan Byler
and Ethan Ellis-both netted
3 points (Ellis drained a 3-
pointer). Byler cleared 7
boards along with 3 assists
and a steal. Ellis blocked 2
shots as well as .2 steals.
Also, he had an assist to go
along with his rebound.
Steven Vassallo got in on the
scoring action with a field
goal. He recorded with 2
assists, a rebound and a
steal. Josh Warner and
Caleb Willis pulled down a
rebound apiece. Ben Willis
was credited with a steal.

p.m.(CST).
The Varsity 'Cats were
hungry for another win and
they were able to hold off a
good Liberty County team,
46-41, bringing Altha's
record to 6-2 on the season.
Wildcat Jason Holland'
had another double-double
night, scoring 17 points and

Early in their season, the
Altha Lady Wildcats have
posted a 3-3 record.
They faced Poplar Springs
Nov. 13 and won 48-24.
Cherie Hires led Altha with
15 points, followed by
Meagan Wiltse with eight.
A road trip to R.F. Munroe
ended in a loss on Nov. 16

was the team leader once
again with 18 points, three
rebounds, two steals, and
two assists. Lindsey Doyal
brought in 14 points, eight
rebounds and two steals.
"We played both teams
very well," says Coach Cassie
Bates. "The girls have
improved so much and we're
extremely proud of them.
They were very excited to win
their first ever varsity win!"
Sneads came to town Dec.
5 and the Cats edged them,
36-33 to chalk up their first
district victory. Hires netted
16 points for Altha. 'The girls
played their hearts out in the
game," Coach Bates
remarks. "We could not have
asked anymore from them."
The Lady Cats lost to
Marianna Dec. 8, 52-25. Joy
Capps led with eight points.
Altha lost a close one to

With dry conditions this holiday season...


Use care with outdoor fires


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is asking the public
to be careful with all outdoor
fires this holiday season.
"Florida has received
below-normal amounts of
precipitation through the fall
months, and this past week-
end's freezing temperatures


in the northern' part of the
state have left much of our
wildlands vulnerable to wild-
fire," Bronson said. "The
freeze-dried vegetation will
only add to the already accu-
mulated debris that is still
scattered across Florida from
the 2004 and 2005 hurricane
seasons."
Relative humidity below


35 percent, lack of rainfall for
two weeks or longer, and
strong, dry winds are all
components that create
extreme fire danger.
"Any fire that starts during
these weather conditions
could get out of control and
spread quickly," said
Bronson.

BY COACH BILLY JONES
The Blountstown Middle
School varsity boys went 9-4
on their season. This past
week they defeated
Riversprings, but were beat-
en by Port St. Joe.
In their win over
Riversprings, 46-37, our
defensive press really helped,
plus our defensive rebounds
helped as well. Both Garrett
and Abbott did an excellent
job in their competition
against Riversprings height
advantage. They also led in
scoring with Abbott's 14 and


Everyone knows that sum-
mer temperatures are cooler
in the .shade, but trees can
help cut winter energy costs,
too. The most common
approach is to plant ever-
green trees and' shrubs on
the north and northwest
sides of your property.
S"Wind barriers can chan-
nel winds away from your
house and cut down on cold
drafts getting into your
house," says Peter
Gerstenberger with the Tree
Care Industry Association.
"In addition, shrubs, bushes
and vines planted next to a
house can help insulate the

mer."
The ultimate goal of plant-
ing a windbreak or living
snow fence is weather con-
trol. By creating a design
that takes into account wind
speed and direction, snow
accumulation patterns, and
areas of high and low usage,
spring and summer plant-
ings can offer homeowners
benefits ranging from
reduced energy costs to more
efficient water management.
To reduce heating costs,
plant evergreen trees and
shrubs as windbreaks. Most
cold winds come from the
north or west (though this
can vary locally), so on those
sides of the building plant a
dense row of evergreens that
maintain branches low to the
ground. To provide addition-
al insulation for your build-'
ing, evergreen shrubs should
be planted slightly away from
the foundation.

reduce the chilling effects of


Garrett's 13. Mosley added 8
more along with Engram's 6
and Bugg's 5 pts. Our offen-
sive play really went well
especially with. Mosley's and,
Bugg's drives to the basket
and their back door passes.
In their loss against St.
Joe 43-59, they had a good
first half, but in the second
half St. Joe dominated com-
pletely. Garrett led the team
in scoring with 16 points.

for a .2-0 forfeit. at

winter winds or control the
accumulation of snow, the
density of the plantings is
key. A rough estimate of den-
sity can be determined by
estimating the ratio of the
"solid" area (branches,
trunks, leaves, etc.) to the
total area of the barrier. For
example, a row deciduous
trees might offer a density of
roughly 30 percent, which
means that the row consists
of 30 percent trees and 70
percent open space in winter.
By comparison, a row of
conifers might have a density
of 50 or 60 percent in winter.
Higher density wind-
breaks are better at slowing
wind speed enough to cause
snow to drop to. the ground
and accumulate both on the
windward and leeward side
of the row (or rows). These,
types of living snow fences
are extremely useful for
keeping roads, driveways,
and other high-use areas
clear of drifts, which means
less ,plowing, less shoveling
and less aggravation.
, On,the other hand, trees
should not be planted on the
southern sides of .homes in
cold climates because the
branches will block some
winter sun. Open drapes on
the south side of your home
during winter days and close
them at night. Sun angles
are low in. winter, allowing
substantial solar heating
through' all south windows.
You, may want to trim
branches on this side of your
house to allow sunlight in.
Call a professional arborist to
trim any 'egetatlon that
shades south windows.

23-7. In their excellent win
over St. Joe, Jawon Mosley
and Roosevelt Martin led in
scoring with 17 and 12
points. Miah Jackson added
8 more along with Will
Roger's 5. This J.V. really
had a great season.
Their two losses were by
only one point verses Grand

against some 8th grade play-

FROM THE PANHANDLE AREA
EDUCATIONAL CONSORTIUM
(PAEC)

Calhoun County was one
of three school districts to see
their STAR plan gain final
State Board of Education
approval Tuesday. That
brings to four the number of
districts with approved STAR
plans. But Education
Commissioner John Winn

Superintendent Mary Sue
Neves described State Board
of Education approval of her
district's STAR plan Tuesday
in Tallahassee.
STAR (Special Teachers
Are Rewarded) was .included
in proviso language in the
2006-07 state education
budget and provides $147.5
million that school districts
can use to reward teachers
who perform well in the
classroom as illustrated by
how well their students do.
But, since STAR is. in the,
budget, not in law, the pro-
gram is good for just one year
unless the Legislature next
session again includes it in
the budget or passes a sepa-
rate law creating the STAR
program. School districts
have until the end of this
month to submit their plan to
the State Board.
'"We're very thrilled, very
pleased at having our STAR
plan approved," Ms. Neves
said later.
Approval of all three plans

BES opens student run bookstore
The grand opening of the new Blountstown Elementary student run bookstore was held on
Friday, December 15, The bookstore will be open every Friday afternoon from 1:15 to 2:15 P M.
Paperback books cost only $1.50 and hardcover books $3.00. The student runr bookstore fea-
tures some promotional reading packages. Student may purchase gift certificates and pre-
paid cards in several denominations. For more information about purchasing gifts certificates
and pre-paid cards contact Debbie Van Lierop at 674-8169. Research shows that access to a
variety of ,books (such as through the bookstore) effects a child's reading motivation and
achievement. The more a student reads, the better his or her vocabulary, reading skills and
knowledge will be. The bookstore features great books at great prices! Parents are encour-
aged to come visit the bookstore and become actively involved in literary development or their
children. Pictured above are some of the students who run the bookstore, (from left) Olivia

Blountstown Fire Department offers...


Tips on holiday fire safety


, Blountstown Fire
Department would like to
'remind everyone to practice
Tire safety this holiday sea-
son. Most residential struc-
'ural fires occur in the
months of December,
January and February.
Disaster can be prevented by
simply following a few safety
tips.
' For those who have a live
,Christmas tree, regularly
,&heck your tree for fresh,
green needles. Trees that
have dried out over several
,weeks burn faster .than
fresher, well-watered.
Remember to keep your tree
watered at all times. Make
Sure your tree stand holds at
least 1 gallon of water. As a
general rule, stands should
provide 1 quart of water per
inch of trunk diameter. The
average 6-foot tree has a 4-
inch diameter trunk and can
consume as much as 4
quarts or 1 gallon of water
per day. Keep your tree at
least 3 feet from fireplaces,
radiators, space heaters,
eatingg vents and other
Sources of heat. Don't place
fhe tree where it blocks an


I John 5:20
It was a solemn question
that two little girls took to
(heir preacher one Sunday
morning. Understandably
leery of small girls questions
t-he preacher promised to'
answer if he could. What was
the question? If Jesus was
born in Bethlehem, how did
he get over here? This is the
miracle of Christmas.
He was born 2000 cen-
turies ago in a small country
about the size of the state of
New Jersey. Such a little
child in such a humble birth-
place to be the whole worlds
hiapeand vet each Christmas
oUr footsteps. like the shep-
heidY turn toward
Bethlehem. In thousands of
different churches, hospitals
and places of business, He
makes his presence felt as
men and women open up
hearts to Him. A majority of
citizens of this nation at least
acknowledge Christ as
Master, Lord, and Savior. It'
must seem strange and mys-
tical to non-christians that in
nearly every. country the one
born in a stable in a little vil-
lage in the Middle East long
ago should be spoken to as if
He were present today'. How
did He get over here? The
New Testament explanation
is in I John 5:20.
He got over here because
in His human birth and life
and death and resurrection,
God invaded our planet. God
gave Him to all mankind
everywhere in the world. God
wanted his creatures to live
abundantly as member of His
family. Could man do this
with sin in his heart groping
in the condition he was. in,
nol
So God gave the priceless
gift, He gave Himself for man
in Jesus Christ that first
Christmas. God gave Himself
that we might know Him, all
men everywhere might know
Him personally and be pre-
pared for eternity.
- And as the Angels praised
God they cried, "Glory to God
in the highest and on earth
peace good will toward men"
Peace, peace, wonderful
peace, peace of heart and
soul. It came that night.
Christ did not come to just
Bethlehem but to all the
world. He came on behalf of
every man, woman and child,
he died for every man.
woman, and child. Christ is
not confined to a city or town,
IHe is present everywhere
people will look to Him. Now
all men who trust and serve
Him are the sons of God. He
got over here because he
invaded this planet of ours
and brought salvation full
and free.
He got over here because
He founded the church. This
community of the Holy Spirit
gave the world the Bible. The
Bible tells how God's search
f@r man and man's quest for
God found fulfillment in
Christ. How that man's
search in this world for
peace, contentment, some-
thing to satisfy, is his search
for God. And that God want-
ed to fellowship with man
and deliver him, but sin
stood in the way.


exit.
Everyone loves lights on
their homes; some here in
Blountstown can be seen
from SPACE! However, if not
installed properly, these
beautiful lights can create a
serious problem. Carefully
inspect each electrical deco-
ration new or old before
plugging it in. Cracked sock-
ets, frayed, bare or loose
wires can cause a serious
electric shock or start a fire.
Replace damaged items with
new, UL-Listed decorations.
Don't use staples or nails to
hang light strings. Instead,
purchase plastic hooks or
clips designed for hanging
light strings. Don't overload
extension cords by plugging
in too many decorations.
Turn off all electrical lights
and decorations before leav-
ing home or going to bed.
Finally, during these cold
winter nights, be extremely
careful with your home heat-
ing appliances. In 2003
heating equipment fires
accounted for 14% of all
reported home fires (second
behind cooking) and 8% of
home fire deaths. Space


Now through Christ one
can be redeemed, restored
back'into fellowship and as
Jesus once said, 'These are
they which testify of me."
The church took the Bible
from the Mediterranean
lands to Greece and Rome.
From Italy and nearby
nations the early missionar-
ies carried it to the barbar-
ians and savages of northern,
western and eastern Europe
which our ancestors lived.
How did it reach the
English speaking world? In
Constantinople, in the fourth
century John Chry.sostom
cried out,-"We ha\e preached
thesgospel by our mi'iionar-
ies. even to the hleathen in the.
British Isles." Thank God
the gospel spread and spread
to the Scandinavian coun-
tries, the Germanic lands, to
France. Praise His name the
church by the Spirit was on
the move.
Then the Pilgrims and oth-
ers came to this hemisphere
carrying Hinm in, their hearts,
their minds, and their souls.
This is how Christ got over
here, through the Bible and
the hearts of men and women
and the church.
Christ got over here
because He kept His promise.
In Acts 1:8 Christ said, "But
you shall receive power after
that the Holy Ghost is come
upon you: and you shall be
witnesses unto me both in
Jerusalem and. in all Judea
and in Samaria and unto the
uttermost part of the earth."
He said when filled with the
Spirit you shall have power
and you will be the ones to
bring the Gospel to every cor-
ner of the earth.
Uttermost means to the
extreme, to the greatest or
highest degree. You can't get
any plainer than that, Christ
promised that the Gospel
would be brought to all the
world by His Spirit through
us.
Also in Matthew 28:19 we
read: Go therefore and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father and of
the Son and the Holy Ghost.
Teach or make disciples of all
nations, this is God's pur-
pose, this will be .done by-
those who are faithful. He
also said, Lo I am with you
always even unto the end of
the world." If you believe this
is God's world and that the
living Christ is still in the
midst of His people then the
question, how did He get over
here, is no problem. Christ is
in the world today, he's in
your heart if you know Him,
He's in your life if you are liv-
ing for Him.
His presence, His power,
His glory encircles the globe
today and enters everywhere
mens hearts will open to
Him. He has and is keeping
His promise that He would be
with us and that every nation
and people would know of
Him and have opportunity to
:come to Him.
God's promises are triue.to
you, he will be wvith you to
the end of the world if you
will receive Him today and
there will be a Merry
Christmas in your heart and
home.

"For unto us a child is born"
Isaiah 9:6
To my patients and friends:
Warm Christmas greetings from Blountstown, as we prepare to
celebrate the birth of the Christ Child, God's greatest gift to us, may
we find a moment, away from the hustle and bustle of holiday
shopping and wrapping, to get alone and present the Lord with a
"love gift" of our time. Time to be still and know that he is God.
Time to reflect on the valleys He's brought us through this year; the
mountain tops some have experienced, and to thank Him for His
Grace and Mercies that are new each morning. I believe this
expression of our love would please Him more than anything we could
give. He is worthy of our Praise and Thanksgiving and...our time.
After all, it is "JESUS' birthday".
We wish you and your loved ones a Meny Christmas
and every Blessing in the New Year.
Dr. and Mrs. Edewaard & staff.

Dr. Barry Edewaard
