Industry - Deep Water Port - Fine People - Safest Beaches in Florida
PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JANUARY 3, 1980


Gulf County again had the
misfortune to have accidents
mar its holiday week end to
break a usual tradition of
coming through the danger
season safe and sound.
Three accidents were re-
ported ,in the Port St. Joe
area; two during the New
Year holiday and one last
Thursday afternoon.
Last Thursday, two people
received cuts and abrasions
about the face when two cars
collided at the intersection of
First Street and Highway 98.

y 979 A Year of Promise for Gulf County


1979 WAS A GOOD YEAR for Port St. Joe In
looking back thFough the files of The Star for the
past year, we find that of 118 headlines
considered as important stories during the year.
the good ones out-numbered the bad or
controversial ones by 82 to 29. Taken as a whole.
Port St Joe has seen worse years, but few better
ones
During the year, we have seen three new
businesses open their doors in Port St Joe and a
fourth one just waiting for the right time after
the holidays There have been no business
failures or closures during the year Opening up
were the Finishing Touch, Neel's Shoes and
Accessories and the Wewahitchka State Bank
branch. A new business, Terry's Fried Chicken
is all set to open up after the holidays.
There were other happenings of much
importance other than the business climate in
the city In the space to follow, The Star %%ill
attempt to outline some of the most important
events of the past year, good and bad We want to
do things just a bit differently this year. Usually
we list the ten most important sotries and then
some headlines of note which happened during
the past year. This year, we will list important
stories under superlatives
As we leap off into the 80's, take a look at


being insufficient A second petition was filed,
but judges refused to set a recall election with
the regular municipal election so near. When two
members of the Board, whose names were on the
recall petition were re-elected by large majori-
ties in one of the largest voter turnouts in city
history, judges ruled that (he other two question
on the petition would not have to face a recall
election

THE BIGGEST MYSTERY story of the year
was also a double-barreled choice
Here in Port St. Joe. the biggest mystery
was the story which surfaced early in the sear
that a group of Arabs was trying to buy a large
tract of acreage in the southern end of the county
to establish a city of some 10,000 residents. That
story fizzled when the Arabs failed to show up or
were never there in the first place
Another big mystery which faced the county
was a skeleton of a man found in the woods off SR
22. east of Wewahitchka. The identity of the man
still remains a mystery, even though scholars at
Florida State university were able to give a
fairly good description of the man after
examining the skeleton. This story still remains
a mystery.

Dave Maddox, Mark Thompson and Ed Colvin study dredging 'request


some of the things which made life interesting
during 1979.
+ +� +
THE NUMBER ONE story, or we should say
stories, of 1979, had to do with our economic
future. We think the most important stories of
the year 1979, for Port St. Joe as a whole, were
the announcements by Agri-Ports, Inc., that they
would construct and operate a huge export grain
shipment station and elevators here in Port St.
Joe. Construction is scheduled to start during the
first quarter of 1980.
The other part of this most important of
announcements was the revelation by St. Joe
Paper Company that they were going to spend a
considerable amount of money rehabilitating
and expanding their paper and box manufactur-
ing operations here. This announcement tells us
the paper manufacturing climate here will be
stable for several years to come.
THE MOST INTERESTING story and the
one which involved more people in the city than
any other, has to be the attempt to recall four of
the City Commission members in the spring of
the year.
The first petition to recall was thrown out as


. THE BIGGEST SURPRISE of the year, and
a pleasant one it was, concerned two occasions in
which the St. Joseph Telephone and Telegraph
Company made refunds to its customers. The
company made more money than it was allowed
to under FCC regulations, and made the refunds
to their subscribers on two occasions during the
year.
THE BIGGEST FRUSTRATION of the year
just had to be, with no argument, the attempt
made all year long by all local government
officials to secure a permit from the Department
of Environmental Regulation to do maintenance
dredging off the entrance to St. Joseph Bay for
shipping purposes. The permit was finally
approved the last month of the year ... we think.
THE BIGGEST TRAGEDY of the year was
the killing of six people on county and state
highways within the county. The road death toll
has been worse, but it has been better, too.
During 1978, only two were killed in traffic
mishaps.


Gasoline was short during summer of '79
and topped $1.00 a gallon before year was over

ever experiences a robbery of more than a few
hundred dollars. But during the past year thieves
hit David Rich's Super Market in Wewahitchka,
Costin's Department Store and Florida First
National Bank here in Port St. Joe for several
thousand dollars on all three occasions.
Another unusual happening was the armed
robbert of the Jr. Food Store in Wewahitchka. It
has been a long, long time since a place of
business in Gulf County was held up by armed
robbers.
Arrests of three men has apparently solved
the Wewahitchka armed robbery, but the other
three burglaries still remain unsolved.
The bank burglary makes the first time a
Gulf County bank has been robbed by outside
sources.
THE MOST VALUABLE CROP harvested in
Gulf County this past year was a $40,000 patch of
marijuana, pulled up by and taken into custody
by the Gulf County Sheriff's Department. Other
farmers in the county sold more produce than
this, but none raised such a valuable crop on so
little land. The crop was found growing in the
woods northeast of Highland View.
A "FIRST TIME" STORY happened in Gulf
County this past year, other than the bank
robbery. Republicans held their first caucus in
Gulf County. The caucus was held in September.
+++
THE BIGGEST SCARE of the year also has
two candidates for the slot of most important.
The strike at the St. Joe Paper Company
Container Division, which lasted for two weeks,
almost threatened to engulf the entire mill
operation, but was settled before it could get any
worse.
The second big scare of the year was the
tomh threat made in Wewahitchka when callers


THE MOST UNUSUAL stories of the year notified school officials early one morning there
were three big robberies. It's seldom our county (Continued On Page 3)

Three Hurt In




Two Accidents


During New Year Holiday


December Was


A Wet Month

Rainfall during the month of December set another
monthly record for rainfall in Gulf County, according to
Mrs. Emily Simmons, who keeps a daily record of
precipitation here in the southern end of the county.
Rain gauges recorded 8.32 inches of rainfall for the
month, eclipsing a previous record of 7.6 inches which fell
in December of 1966. Five inches of the 8.32 inch rainfall
came during the night three weeks ago, causing some
flooding conditions in Port St. Joe.
Even with the heavy rains of December, it still wasn't
.a monthly recordfor the year. The wettest month-of 1979
:was September, when Hurricane Fredrick helped to bring
19 inches of moisture to the county, to make it the wettest
month of the yrf. -

Russia Seems to be Following In Our Footsteps


After all their self-righteous clucking of
their tongues at the United States for trying to
coerce the world into following its example in
government and freedom for its people, the
nation of Russia seems to be following in our
footsteps in a like endeavor and meeting with
just about as much lack of success.
After years of considering North Vietnam
as their protege while they were fighting the
United States' supported Vietnam govern-
ment, the Russians used this "good neighbor"
policy to ingratiate themselves with the
Vietcong and North Vietnam. All the while,
they were shaming their finger at the United
States for being so involved with the
government of that nation to fend off the
Vietcong and North Vietnam. The Russians
were saying, "Let this nation's people decide
their own destiny."
Now, the Russians are involved in a $3.3
million a day program of furnishing supplies
to the Viets and they are using it to over-run
nearly every country which joins theirs. They
have even used this Soviet muscle to incur the
enmity of the Chinese.
Now, after building up this military
machine though manipulations designed to
embarras the United States, the Russians find


themselves in the position of having to tell the
Vietnamese, point-blank, "Stop your military
operations in Cambodia and other neighboring
countries."
You see, the actions of the Vietnamese are
now embarrassing the Russians with these
nations they wish to influence.
The question here is, will the Vietnamese
listen to the Russians more closely than they
listened to the United States' advice? Will the
Russians eventually have to throw up their


hands and pull out of a morass they can't
possibly untangle?
Then, one day last week, the Russian
press was extolling the virtues of the premier
of Afghanistan in the morning editions and,
with a surprise coup in Afghanistan that day,
had to print their evening editions, telling
what a scoundrel he was.
Russia is also involved in trying to mould
Afghanistan into another communist country,
patterned after their mentors, so Russia can


have first chance at their oil, naturally.
We won't shed any crocodile tears over
the misfortunes of the Russians. It couldn't
happen to a better system. If they were stupid
enough not to learn a lesson from the
experience of the United States, then they
deserve to get their fingers burned.
Which goes to show, these emerging
nations don't mind you giving them money or
feeding their starving millions, but don't try to
expect anything from them for it.


Gulf Countians Seem Enthusiastic About the "80's "


Almost everyone in Port St. Joe seems to
be enthusiastic about 1980, in spite of recent
announcements that the price of oil, and
gasoline,' would be going up in price.
Announcements made recently about
Agri-Ports building a grain elevator here,
progress made in establishing a seafood
processing center and port facilities, along
with Florida Power Corporation seeming to
favor this area for a new generating plant and
expansion and improvements announced by


St. Joe Paper Company, make 1980 a year of
promise from the very first day.
There have been many people, working
hard and spending their own money during the
past year to try to get things going around
here. They see the squandering of our most
valuable resource, our young people, by
sending them somewhere else for others to
reap the benefits of their expertise.
New jobs will be the fruits of any new
industrial operation which starts up here


during the coming year or two. New jobs will
mean our young people can stay here and
build a solid town which will become "home"
for everyone who lives here.
We can begin to see a sense of pride
emerging in our community since the promise
of better things to come have been revealed. A
sense of pride will do more than any other one
thing to make our community the showplace
of the Gulf Coast.
We hope to see it continue to grow in 1980.

Drunk driving arrests by

way Patrol recently.
Records for the first nine
months of 1979 indicate that'
troopers have arrested 5,536
drunk drivers. The same
,period for 1978 resulted in
5,273 D.W.I. arrests.

And for most of us, even though we
knew the assessment was wrong and
even though we knew we were really
being flim-flammed by our law-break-
ing property appraiser, we appreciated
receiving an assessment that was
considerably less than the, just value of
our property.
Now that Florida finally has a
governor who appears willing to force
this select band of elected officials to
obey the law - to carry out their sworn
constitutional duty - they are going to
circulate petitions and try to get 255,000
voter-signatures to make. 50 percent

become politically advantageous for
them to assess at 40, 30. apd- even less

find themselves in the same bad straits
they were in prior to the Supreme
Court's strongly reiterating that just
value - called for in the constitution --
is 100 percent of value.
- A- .It is-pure-hypocrisy'on the part of-
property appraisers to attempt to
impose limits on spending. It is not
their job, but if they are sincere they
should start with their own budgets. It
is probably a safe bet that everyone of


them has sought to increase the office
budget, and probably more than the 5
percent limit they would impose.
Budget-making is the job of city
and county commissioners and school
board members, and they are the
officials tax-payers should hold
accountable.
And it is the property appraisers
tax-payers need to hold accountable for
failing to obey the law and under
assessing property. In the long run we
are all losers, because of their
self-serving actions.
Gov. Graham's decision to force
compliance with the just value law was
a good one. Floridians still enjoy a low
tax climate, but inflation is causing
problems for the poor and the retired.
These can be handled by such proposi-
tions as the Max Tax, which would limit
the amount of property tax a person
pays based on. a .percentage ,of. his,
r income. . , ....

while in total accidents, only
seven percent involved alco-
hol. This brings out the
seriousness of alcohol related
crashes."
Dade County led in drunk
driving arrests with 533,
Orange had 412, Hillsborough
387, Palm Beach 351, and
Duval 347. Four of the small
counties had less than ten
D.W.I. arrests.
"Alcoholics, many who stop
on the way home from work
for a few drinks, represent one


of the more dangerous class of
drivers. They are convinced
that alcohol has no effect on
their driving and that they can
drive just as good as any other
driver," said the traffic offi-
cial.
"Anyone who is put in the
position of having to ride with
an intoxicated driver should
never permit that person to
drive. If you are unable to stop
them, at least don't get into
the vehicle yourself. Help save
a life; yours," concluded
Beach.


Christmas Is Gone
This discarded Christmas tree, which formerly


decorated someone's home with a brilliant splash of color
and gaily shining lights is now just so much garbage as
well as a mute testimony to the fact that Christmas has
come and gone. The holiday season is officially over when
the Christmas trees are thrown out. -Star photo


Is 1980 the Last Year of the "70's" or Beginning of the "80's"?


HERE I WAS all set to start the
decade of the "80's", when along comes
a calendar maker and tells us that we
are not entering the decade of the
"80's", we are completing the decade of
the "70's".
This .particular calendar maker
argues that we count from one to zero,
not zero to nine, thus, the new year will
wind up the "70's".
0 I think this guy is just trying to
come up with a scheme to get his name
in the papers. He argues that 1980 will
be the last year of the. 1970's, because
the zero naturally follows the nine in the
counting rotation.
I remember back when I was in the
first and second grades, we started
learning to count by listing the zero
first.
Another thing to think about is that
we are now entering the ninth decade of
this century and not the eighth. If you
remember, the first decade of the
century started off with 1901. We had a
zero as the third numeral denoting the
year. When we reached the second
decade of the century-1910- there was
a one for the third digit.


If all of that doesn't confuse you
enough, just forget it all. We are now in
1980, whether it is a new decade or not
and regardless of which decade of the
century it is.
The biggest problem isn't to decide





ETAOII






which decade it is. The biggest problem
which faces us all is to get used to
writing "1980" when we date our
checks, mail and other material on
which a date must be affixed.
ONE OF THE REASONS I like to
read is that very often I run across an
interesting sounding word I don't know
the meaning of or ever heard of before.


It's real often that I run into a word I
don't know the meaning of, but the ones
which just sound interesting and
different intrigue me. Some of these
words are just ready-made to drop into
a conversation and let them roll around


and sound inviting.
One of these words was discovered
last week in Russell Baker's column.
Russell was going on about reading the
small stories in the papers which tell of
the unusual, the bizarre and the
comical.
That's why I read Russell Baker: to
come up with the off-beat subject, the
unusual, the comical and the whimsi-


The word I discovered was "post-
prandial". Isn't that an interesting
word? Doesn't it sound inviting to you?
I looked it up and it meant, "after
dinner. Done after dining."


I know now why I never used it
before. I just usually say "after
dinner". I don't know if I will every
have any use for the word "postpran-
dial", since it is more handy to say
"after dinner", but I'm going to file
that word away and use it someday
when I least expect it.
Come to think of it, just now, after
the holiday season, we are still living in


a postprandial condition. We're trying


a postprandial condition. We're trying
to get over what we "prandialed"
during the past two weeks and our
postprandial activity is getting rid of
the extra pounds we put on during the
holidays.
My postprandial activity is an
orange and a salad for supper for the
next two or three weeks.

ACCORDING TO a little squib I
read in the papers the other day, 1979
saw half as many people getting
divorces as were married' during the
year.
According to recorded statistics,
there were 1.8 million marriages during
the first nine months of 1979, while
868,000 divorces were granted.
On the face of it, you might draw
the conclusion that half of the new
marriages ended in divorce, but it just
isn't so. I means that 868,000 of all the
married couples in the United States
were divorced during the year. Still it's
a tragic thing that this many people had
to end a marriage through divorce.
I hope the 1.8 million who were


married during this period of time hav
a better track record than the unfo4-'
tunates who had to dissolve theft
marriages.

: THIS IS BEING WRITTEN OWi
Saturday, but already we can see tlp
signs of this state coming to a complete
stand-still Tuesday 'night, while the
citizens of Florida hang on the TV to sep
how Florida State will come out in iA
Orange Bowl game with Oklahoma. ,
You'd think the school was entering
, the Super Bowl or something. Most 4f
the Florida people seem to hare
confidence the Seminoles can handle
the Sooners, but the people outside the
state who offer an educated guess i
such matters, say the Seminoles'
followers will be disappointed.
Even these unpopular statements
(in Florida) don't dampen the interest
in the big game. Even here in Port St.
Joe, one would think the Sharks weie
playing for the state title.
If we could just generate this
amount of interest toward cleaning 4p
and keeping our city clean during tle
coming year.

Time to Landscape - Choose


Plants and Site Carefully


Success of landscape plant-
ings depends greatly on site
analysis and plant selection.
The long term value of a
landscape plant depends on
how well it performs in the
planting site. Planting site
characteristics such as
amount of sun or shade, salt
* spray, exposure, water drain-
age and soil type must be
.determined before plants are
selected.
The light characteristics of
a planting site can be full sun,
half day full sun, indirect
light, broken shade, full shade
or any light level in between.
Ornamental plants can be
selected which will grow in
almost any sun or shade level
around the home.
The amount of light affects
rate or photosynthesis, plant
water loss, degree of sun
scald, and ability to tolerate
dry soils and winds. Most
plants grown in shade require
less irrigation than plants
" grown in full sun.
Plants protected by trees
are less subject to cold injury
than those in exposed loca-
tions because the tree canopy
reduces the radiant heat loss
t.from these plants. Shade
during the early morning
slows the rate of thaw and can
reduce the amount of cold
damage.
Plant tolerance of salt water
and salt spray is of particular
concern to homeowners living
in Florida's coastal areas.
Plants can be selected that are
well-adapted to soils and
exposures of coastal areas.
Poor soil drainage may
cause roots of some plants to
rot while other plants are
adapted to wet areas. How-
ever, plants recommended for
wet areas which are produced
in a well-drained nursery soil
may not be able to withstand
the rapid transition. The best
solution is to correct the
drainage problem by altering
surface or subsurface drain-
age patterns with tiles, land
forms, etc.
A soil lest should be com-
pleted before landscape plants
are selected. Select plants
which are adapted to the
existing soil type rather than
amending or changing soil
conditions to suit a particular
type of plant.
Good landscape design re-
quires that landscape plants
be used to serve a definite
function. Plants should im-
prove the appearance or use-
fulness of the home grounds.
Homeowners often select
plants with unusual character-
istics. A limited number of
plants with unusual colors or

growth habits can be used
effectively in the landscape,
but their location must be
skillfully planned.
Some plants in retail outlets
are tagged according to
grades and standards as es-
tablished by the Florida Divi-
sion of Plant Industry. A plant
graded as a Florida Fancy is a
healthy and vigorous plant
which is very well shaped,
heavily branched and densely
foliated. A Florida No. I grade
is a healthy vigorous plant
which is well shaped, well
branched and well foliaged.
The Florida no. 2 is healthy,
vigorous, fairly well shaped,
and with fair branching and
fair foliage. Any plant not
meeting the above standards
is a Florida No. 3 The lower
the grade when purchased'the
less chance the plant has of
being a good one at maturity.
Often plants are not tagged
as to grade, and they should be
inspected closely. Do not
purchase plants with an 'un-
healthy appearance or with
weak, poorly formed, scarred,
cracked or peeling trunks or

branches. Poorly distributed
branches usually lead to "leg-
gy" plants and should be
avoided. Leaves of abnormal
size or excessive yellowing
are an indication of a plant
health problem. These plants
should be examined for in-
sects, diseases and mechani-
cal damage. I
The root system of a con-
tainer grown plant should be


well established, however, the
plant should not be root-
bound. Roots should be distri-
buted throughout the soil and
not protruding outside the
container or penetrating into
the ground.
High quality plants suited to
your particular site will be
easier to maintain and will
provide beauty and enjoyment
for years to come.

Administration (FmHA) an-
nounced the suspension re-
cently.
Cavanaugh said no new
authorization or continuing
resolution has been enacted.
Programs affected are the
section 502 low to moderate
income home ownership, sec-
tion 515 rural rental housing
and the section 523 technical
assistance grants and self help
site loans.
Cavanaugh, in a directive to
state directors, said although
the nearly 2,000 county, dis-
trict and state offices around
the country can continue to
accept and process applica-
tions for the affected pro-
grams, it should be made
clear to applicants that the
loans cannot be approved until
FmHA received Congression-
al authorization.
FmHA suspended lending
Oct. 31 when congressional
authorization for the pro-
grams first expired, however,
lending was resumed in mid-
November after Congress pas-
sed a resolution continuing the
program until December 1.
FmHA is the rural credit
arm of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. During fiscal
year 1979, the agency made
approximately 100,000 low to
moderate income home own-
ership loans totaling $2.9
billion, and 1,645 rural rental
housing loans totaling $860
million.

For A Lunch Box Treat...

Bake Up Almond Bars

EPaMk ni crchy almond a nd- ctm-44 prune goodness into
the day with Almond Prune Bars.
Those seemingly insatiable student appetites will .delight in
these crunchy, chewy Almond-Prune Bars. And when you pack
a lunch with these tempting treats, you're packing plenty of
wholesome, natural goodness. Almonds fare a good source of
vitamins and minerals, often lacking in diets today. Plus, they
are rich' in nutritious, energy-producing carbohydrates, which
are especially important for growing children
Almonds are available in so many convenient forms they
make baking a breeze. Almond-Prune 8ars are no exception-
they're a quick and simple one-pan. cookie treat. A durable,
easy-to-pack dessert, they weather the rigors of lunch.. bot*
transport well. The real question will be. whether kids will wait
until lunch to taste these delicious cookie bars.
For another crunchy almond lunch box special, mix the versa-
tile almond with dried fruits and coconut flakes.

ministration has finally ex-
plained why.
The city of Pueblo, Col-
orado is located in the center of
the country. Really - no kid-
ding. That is why. This
theoretically allows orders to
reach both coasts in about the
same time and, conversely,
orders can reach Pueblo with
approximately the same delay.
This location, combined with a
mechanized and highly effi-
cient operation, allows for the
processing of up to one million
publications each week. Last
year, the Center sent out more
than 26 million publications.
Well, now you know -
Why Pueblo.

tative from Pennsylvania, sub-
mitted the recipe which Nancy

1 cup unsifted flour
V2 cup light brown sugar
V4 cup vegetable shortening

I teaspoon baking soda
1 cup boiling water
1 cup golden table molasses
V4 teaspoon salt
9 inch unbaked pie shell

and shortening in a bowl and
cut with a pastry blender or rub
with your fingers until it forms
fine crumbs. Set aside.

water. Add molasses and salt
and stir to blend well. Pour liq-
uid mixture into pie shell and
sprinkle the crumb topping
evenly over it. Bake in a 3750
oven for 10 minutes. Reduce
temperature to 3500 and bake
for 30 minutes longer or until
set. When pie is given a gentle
shake, the top should remain

-The tax rate schedules
have been widened, reducing
taxes in several income brack-
ets.
According to DeWitt, the
widening of the brackets is
designed to prevent higher
earnings generated by infla-
tionary forces from pushing
taxpayers more quickly into
higher, tax brackets.
Other, changes include the
elimination of the gas tax
deduction and deductions for
political contributions. How-
ever, he limit for tax credits
for political contributions has
been doubled to $100 on a joint

Scrap Aluminum Collection Dates


The new year brings a new
decade and an appropriate
time for Apalachicola's citi-
zens to make their "recy-
cling" resolution.
In January, the Reynolds
Aluminum Recycling Com-
pany will purchase aluminum
from the public on Tuesdays,
January 15 and 29 from 11:30
a.m. to 1:00p.m. at the County
Dock, Boat Base, Avenue E
and Waters Street.
Reynolds pays 23 cents a
pound for aluminum beverage.
cans and other clean, house-
hold aluminum products such
as pie plates, foil, frozen food
and dinner trays and dip,


pudding and meat containers.
Reynolds also recycles such
items as aluminum siding,
gutters. storm door and win-
dow frames, castings, and
lawn furniture tubing. These
aluminum items must be cut
tolengths not exceeding three
feet and should not be mixed
with cans.
Dave Vardell, District Man-
ager. Reynolds Aluminum Re-
cycling Co.. said, "As more
and more people become
aware of the importance of
aluminum recycling. 1980
should prove to be a very
successful year for recy-
cling."

may be required for the first
time to include all or part of
such benefits in gross income.
"There are also changes in-
volving the earned income
credit which may result in a
tax credit of up to $500 for
some persons making less
than $10,000," DeWitt said.
The IRS director noted that
more than 1.5 million Floridi-
ans will be receiving the
shorter Form 1040A package.
"Once again we expect a
record number of our state's
taxpayers will be able to use


A Sophisticat
--by


this form and still obtain all
the tax benefits they are
entitled to," DeWitt said.
While overall tax return filing
by Floridians has increased 13
percent during the last three
years, Form 1040A filing has
nearly doubled.
DeWitt urged taxpayers to
use the pre-addressed IRS
envelope and peel-off label
provided with their tax pack-
age since this will speed up
processing of their returns
and get their checks to them
more quickly.

- Turkey and gravy - that's menu shorthand for good eating.
That goodness translates into delicious eating any day of the
year, by serving turkey and gravy in a number of appealing
ways. For example, this Turkey Dip Sandwich.
Serve the sliced roast turkey in a French roll and dip into
this dressed-up gravy. Black coffee is the surprise ingredient
that gives it pizazz.
Spoon a little of the gravy over the turkey in the sandwich
and serve more alongside for a dip as you eat. That way you
won't miss a drop of that turkey and gravy goodness!
