County Chosen by Florida Power



As Site for New 800,000 KW Generating Plant


Gulf County will be the site of Florida Power
Corporation's next electric generating plant.
This news became official last Thursday at 1:00 p.m.,
after nearly two years of expectation and waiting by people
of this area for the company to make up its mind, after
learning Gulf County was a possible site for the proposed new
plant.
While it's definite the company's next plant will be
located in Gulf County, it is still uncertain as to just when the
plant will be built. Speculation is that it will be in the early or
middle 1980's, with the company remaining non-committal
on this point.
For the past year, the company has been conducting
tests at a site near White City, where the Gulf County Canal
and the Intracoastal Waterway intersect. The Gulf County
site and one in Osceola county were the last two possible sites
for the new plant.


A Florida Power Corporation spokesman said Gulf
County finally won out in the choice because it had both rail
and water transportation to transport coal to the new plant
site. The other site in Osceola County had only rail facilities
and was farther from the corporations's coal fields in
Virginia and Kentucky.
In a terse news release put out by the company last
Thursday at 1:00 p.m., the company said:
"Following three years of study and evaluation,
Florida Power Corporation has selected Gulf County
as the location of its next new generating plant.
"The company has no firm plans at this time to
construct a new power plant, however, company of-
ficials felt the site selection decision important to the
total corporate planning program for the next decade.
"With strong efforts being put forth through-
out the state to conserve all forms of energy, the con-


struction of a new power plant might not be necessary
for the'next few years. It is a fact, however, that the
new plant will eventually be needed if only to replace
older facilities. When the time comes for an additional
generating site, Gulf County is Florida Power's choice.
EXTENSIVE STUDIES
The power company has conducted exhaustive studies
here in Gulf County for the past year and a half studying
prevailing winds, water availability, composition of the earth
and other matters which they must determine before a plant
can be built. Several dozen borings have been made at the
site where the canals intersect over the past months and a
station located off Highway 98 near St. Joe Beach has been
monitoring weather conditions.
One of the firm's prime concerns is meeting state
requirements for environmental protection, according to
William C. Johnson, public relations director of the firm.


"That's the way we play the game", he said.
Several environmental permits will be required for the
site, including permits to run a transmission line from Gulf
County to the central Florida heart of the company's system.
The company has two suggested routes for this line: one
across the Apalachicola National Forest and then south and
another north through Calhoun County to Havana, east to the
utility's Suwanee River Power Plant now in operation, then
south.
The company provides electric energy for 32 counties
in the state, serving 21,000 square miles and three million
people. Reports say the utilities' customer load is increasing
by some 40,000 per month.
The firm currently has two coal-fired plants under
construction at Crystal River, one of which will go into
production in 1982 and another in 1984.
A plant in Port St. Joe would be necessary to provide any
prediction of current increases for the early 1990's.

Last year's taxing powers
yielded $310,412 in ad valorem
taxes, at a millage rate of 4.87.
Presently, both the county
and the two cities in the county
are operating on the same
basic rate as last year's
budget and financing the day
to day operation with funds
which have been set aside for
depreciation, surplus funds
required by law that the
governments maintain for
emergencies and with bor-
rowed funds. Up to this point,
only the Gulf County School
Board has had to borrow
money to operate for the two
months beyond the normal


budget period.
With Brock's statement go-
ing out and the anticipation of
acceptance by the State Reve-
nue Department, all taxing
bodies in the county will be in
a rush for the next 30 to 45
days getting their budgets
drawn up, approved and the
tax bills sent out. It will be at
least 30 days before any


budgets are finalized as the
law requires this period of
time in the budgeting process.
The County is meeting Fri-
day night at 7:00 p.m., to get
into serious negotiations with
their budget for the new year
and the City of Port St. Joe is
expected to get their budget
work cranked up some time
next week.

The County Commissioners
thought they were meeting on
the wrong day when they
showed up Tuesday morning
and there was not one visitor
in the audience. It is an
unusual thing for the County to
convene a meeting in which
there isn't at least one person
present with a problem to be
considered.
Tuesday was such a day, but
the Board took action to solve
one problem which could be
vital to establishing a port
here in the Port St. Joe area
and continue maintenance
dredging activities in the bay.
On a motion by Commis-
sioner Billy Branch, the Board
instructed their attorney, Wil-
liam J. Rish, to begin taking
necessary steps necessary to
gain ownership of several lots
west of Highway. 98 at High-
land View which are now
der water. The property in

question would be used for
spoil sites in the future for
maintenance dredging.
The Board has looked at this
site with covetousness in the
past, since it would provide
the spoil site needed, protect
Highway 98 from storm tides
and provide a white sand
beach for the area.
This has been only a dream
on their part, since the Corps
of Engineers will not dump
their spoil on private property
without a long-term spoil site
easement, making the proper-
ty, in effect, useless for
anything except a spoil site.
In years past, some of the
property along the highway at
Highland View was high and
dry and was privately owned.
Some of the property is still
owned by at least 12 different
people, but it is under water
and can't be used.
Rish said he would get to
work immediately on the
project.
FIREWOOD
The Board agreed to
offer the wood from several
trees cut down on the
Cut-off Island across the
Dead Lakes bridge for the
public to collect as fire-
wood.
The trees were knocked
down by the county in a
clearing operation on the
road right of way and had
received several requests
from people who wanted to
collect firewood from the
clearing.
The Board decided Tues-
day to allow the public to
come and collect all the
firewood they wanted from
the fallen trees before they
are otherwise destroyed.
The Board plans to have
the debris out of the way
before high water in the
spring, so those wanting
the wood had better get
busy.
ACCEPT BUDGET
After an initial decision to
appeal the proposed $72,474
budget of the Property Ap-


praiser, the County Commis-
sion decided to drop their
objection and consider the
budget in their new financial
plan.
The Assessor's budget for
last year was $47,927.

Fire Destroys Moore Home


Fire of an undetermined
origin completely destroyed
the Lamar Moore home at
Jones Homestead last Thurs-
day evening.
Firemen were called to the
blaze when the alarm sounded
shortly after 6:00 p.m., Thurs-
day evening, and with the aid
of extra water from the
Highland View Fire Depart-


ment, put the fire out after the
home was damaged inside.
The fire was confined to the
ceiling, where it seemed to be
centered in the attic.
A lack of water supply in the
Jones Homestead area ham-
pered fire fighting activities,
but still the department man-
aged to get the blaze put out.


About an hour later, an
alarm sounded again, calling
the department back to the
same home which was com-
pletely engulfed in flames the
second time they arrived.
Again, a lack of water was a
problem with fire fighting,
and the home burned to the
ground.


Wewahitchka's annual
Christmas Parade will be held
Saturday; December 20 at 2:00
p.m., according to the spon-
sors, the Wewahitchka Area
Retail Merchants.
The merchants are furnish-
ing cash prizes for the winning
floats, and there is no charge
for entry. Also, the merchants
are promoting the parade,
with the Community Services
Director acting as chairman.
The CSD says that he still


has room for more floats to
enter the parade and urges all
church groups, civic clubs and
school organizations to enter.
These non-commercial groups
are eligible for the float prize
money, to be awarded im-
mediately following the pa-
rade.
Any group which plans to
include an entry should call
the Community Services Di-
rector at City Hall so they can
be assigned a position in the
parade line-up.


Record Crowd, Record Parade


Santa Claus must have felt warmly welcomed to Port St.
Joe last Saturday morning. He arrived in 78 degree,
sun-shiny weather, with the largest crowd which has ever
witnessed a parade in Port St. Joe, who came to see the
biggest parade which has ever made its way down Reid
Avenue.
It took well over a half hour for the long parade, made up
of many colorful and well-made floats, horses, marching
groups, the Port St. Joe High School "Band of Gold",
decorated cars, clowns, novelty entries and interesting
sights to travel up the street.
This year's parade was produced by the Port St. Joe
Kiwanis Club and the Retail Merchants, who put a month of
planning and arrangements into the spectacle to usher in the
Christmas season here in Port St. Joe. Al Ray was chairman
of the parade planning committee.
People were packed solid from the curb to the back of the
sidewalk, on both sides of Reid Avenue from one end to the


other as the parade made its way up the street and back down
Highway 98.
Of the many floats which were entered in the parade, the
panel of three judges selected the three which they felt best
represented the spirit of Christmas in making their selection.
In the photo below, Merchants Division president,
Wesley R. Ramsey is shown presenting the prize money to
representatives of the three winning organizations for their
floats. The checks are being presented to Catherine Ramsey,
Ambulance Squad chief, second place for $75.00; Mrs.
Imogene Hopps, North Port St. Joe Planning Board, first
place, $100 and Keith White representing St. James
Episcopal Church youth, third prize of $50.00.
In the photo at left, Santa Claus shows his pleasure at the
warm welcome he received by tossing hand-fulls of candy
from his perch atop one of Port St. Joe's fire trucks as he
rides in the parade. -Star photos

Florida Power Announcement Was Welcome News


It's now affirmed that Gulf County is
Florida Power Corporation's choice as the site
for their next power generating plant here in
Florida. After over two years of making
studies of various possible locations in the
state, Gulf County was announced as the site
at 1:00 p.m., Thursday afternoon of last week.
But don't go making plans yet. Hold on to
your plans and dreams for a sudden spurt in
our economy. It isn't coming all that fast nor
all that sudden. These things take time.



You Did A Goo

Port St. Joe had its best Christmas parade
'-Saturday in many years. We think the
Community owes an expression of apprecia-
tion to those who worked up the parade and
put it on, as well as the many people who
worked hard at building the many floats and
entries which were displayed.
We wish to offer our thanks, for the
community, to three men, especially, who
chaired the parade production and saw that it
ran smoothly. The entire project was under
the leadership of the Kiwanis Club, but
Kiwanians Al Ray and Ken Herring spear-
" headed the operation. Al Ray was primarily in
charge and did most of the leg work. They
were assisted by Karl Bowen, who-has worked
"::on the parade in the past for the Jaycees and
helped Ray and Herring, giving them advice,
steering them in securing the many floats and


In the case of the power plant, it may be
from two to three years before we see a spade
of earth turned. The company is indefinite
about when such construction will start, but
they are definite about the fact that it won't be
in the immediate future.
The only thing last Thursday's announce-
ment decided was that Gulf County will be the
site. The "when" of the long-awaited
announcement here, is still to be decided.
We're writing this piece for two reasons:

entries in the parade and doing much of the
actual work himself.
We think they did a superb job.
It's people like these who make things go
around here and in any community. They
don't sit back and wait for someone else to do
it. They get busy and do it themselves. Without
such people, a lot of things would go lacking
around here.
It's impossible to have the many activities
we have in Port St. Joe without some private
citizen having enough civic pride to do the
work. We couldn't pay for such service and we
shouldn't expect to. A community is the people
in it, and what goes on is the result of the
people working together.
Congratulations, fellows. You did a superb
job and we appreciate it.


first, to calm down any excited expectations
we might have about sudden growth here in
Gulf County and the Port St. Joe area next
year. It may come, but the power generating
plant won't .. next year at least. Secondly,
we as a county need to start making plans now
to get ready for this project.

Florida Power is really doing us as a
county a favor by announcing their intentions,
but delaying the actual start for a while. A
sudden start on a project as enormous as this
one would discombobulate our county some-
thing fierce. We wouldn't have the housing,
the sanitary services, roads, services and
many ether needs for the survival and
satisfaction of some 800 to 1,000 workmen
moving into the area to work on the plant. We
couldn't even take care of the several hundred


permanent workmen which would be needed
to operate such a plant.
With the kind of notice we have now, we
can begin taking steps to get ready.
Our county and city governments have
their work cut out for them for the next four or
five years, making plans, getting services
ready, housing, etc. It won't be an easy task,
nor will it be inexpensive. If the task is done
properly, it will mean a profit in the long run
from a financial base and the lack of a need
for a crash program to make ready for such an
undertaking. If done properly, the coming of.
the plant, whenever it is, will be orderly and
peaceful.
So, we think Florida Power has blessed us
in two ways: announcing that they will build
here and giving us ample time to prepare for
their coming.

every day. He advocated putting a little
aside for a rainy day.
That is what nature is doing for the
heftier among us. They are saving up
for the day when they won't have


enough to eat to meet their energy
needs.
You don't have to take my word for
it. What I am writing here has been
vindicated in an article in Newsweek
which stated, and I quote, "I see
patients every week who remain


overweight on only 1,000 calories a
day". That quotation was made by Dr.
Jeffrey S. Flier, chief of the diabetes
unit at Boston's Beth Israel hospital.
You know Jeff. You know he knows


what he is talking about.
Dr. Jeff went on to say that people
differ remarkably in the way their
bodies handle food. When a plump
person tells you he has gland trouble, he
isn't just vindicating himself or making
an excuse; that's the actual problem,


according to this article in Newsweek.
THE CULPRIT or the benefit,
which makes all of us plump persons so
round, so firm, so fully packed is
ATPase. That is an enzyme in the blood
which regulates the body's sodium and
potassium levels. This is the gizmo
which burns up calories and keeps you
disgustingly thin people from getting to
be like us normal people. When your
ATPase level is of a certain nature,
your body stores up calories for a rainy
day, rather than spending them on
energy the second you take them in.

NOT ONLY DOES the article show
that plump people can't help being
naturally plump, it also states that the
ideal weight charts are wrong. The
ideal.weight isn't that which makes us
literally a bag of bones.
"As a matter of fact", the
magazine says, "Too little weight can
-be more dangerous than too much."
The article goes on to say that people


who are underweight face much the
same dangers as those who are
overweight.
ALL OF THIS leads me to think
that dieting is not the best thing for a4
person, unless he does it under th
watchcare of a physician.
It was good news to me and I'm
sure it will be good news to you that the
article closed with the advice that the
best course anybody can follow is to use
moderation in your eating and you will
fare much better.
Pass the pie.

I'M NOT GOING to say a thing
about THE game of last Saturday.
The score was enough for both sides
to be happy: the Seminoles for having
beaten the Gators and the Gators for
having held the score so close.
All I have to say is that the
Seminoles are in trouble. Don't they
know it is illegal to gig gators in
Florida?

* Cynthia Rogers Selected

for O'Brian Seminar


TIE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, DEC. 11, 1980


Christmas Concert at School


Miss Cynthia Rogers, da-
ughter of Mr. and Mrs. Vance
Rogers, has been selected by a
faculty committee as the
sophmore to represent Port
St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School as
its representative to the Hugh
O'Brian Youth Foundation
Seminar.
The faculty committee
made the selection based on
Miss Rogers' responses to the
three questions: How have
you demonstrated leadership
ability? How have you ex-
pressed sensitivity and con-
cern for others? How have you
shown the desire to learn and
share knowledge and experi-
ence with others?
The objectives of the Hugh
O'Brian Youth Foundation are
to seek out, recognize, and
reward leadership potential of
high school sophomores here
:: and abroad, encourage and
assist members of this form-
ative age-group in their quest
for self-identification and self-
: development, and to interface
I these potential leaders of


today through intense but
informal give-and-take "rap
sessions," covering a variety
of current subjects.
In 1958, Hugh O'Brian re-
turned from Africa highly
inspired by his visit with Dr.
Albert Schweitzer. Later that
year, while portraying the
legendary lawman, Wyatt
Earp, on television, Mr.
O'Brian decided to make his
own contribution to society by
establishing the Youth Found-
ation. Since that time, the
Foundation has motivated
young people to realize their
leadership potential by con-
ducting annual seminars on a


variety of subjects.
Former representatives
from Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High
School are Leslie Costin and
Patrick May.
- Miss Rogers is an active
student who maintains a B
average. She has been a
member of the band for three
years and has been a major-
ette two of those years.
In the spring of 1981 Miss
Rogers will meet with other
school winners in the State of
Florida seminar. Should she
become a state winner, she
would represent Florida in the
Dallas, Texas seminar during
the summer.


The Music Department of
Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High
School is presenting its Annual
Christmas Concert next
Thursday, December 18, at
7:30 p.m. in the High School
Commons Area. The first part
of the program will consist of
choral music with the concert
choir, St. Joe Singers and

Everyone is cordially in-
vited to attend at no admission

was capped off with an
inspiring talk by Paul Ander-

The Taunton home, built on
property owned by the Taun-

Cemetery Road, is designed to
care for and provide a home
for about 15 children, accord-
ing to the Judge's wife,
Abigail. Already two children
have been taken into the home
and will be allowed tostay just
as long as they want to,
according to Mrs. Taunton.
"We are looking for children


who are not wanted at home
and have no place to go",
Judge Taunton said. "We will
take any child, regardless of
color, creed or sex, and
provide them a home. We
prefer to get them just as
young as possible."
At present, the home is not
finished, but it is completed to
the point where the entire
facility can be used and lived
in comfortably, including the

multi-purpose gymnasium,
which runs the entire length of
the rear of the home and is
under the same roof. The
gymnasium is accessible to
the home through a double
sliding glass door right off the
spacious, cypress paneled
great room.
Inside the gym, provisions
are being made for a variety
of physical exercise programs
including basketball and ten-
nis.
In front of the home is a
yawning hole in the ground,
which will be a lake in the
future. Beside the home is
another, smaller hole, which
will be a swimming pool.
The home was dried in by a
building contractor, and then
the Taunton family took over,
with brothers, cousins and
in-laws doing the actual finish
work.
"We have also had a lot of
donated labor on this project",
Judge Taunton said, mention-
ing especially Charles, Betty
and Reubin Cleckley who
completely wired the complex
free of charge.
Most of the lumber in the
rambling structure was cut
and sawed by the Taunton
Brothers Sawmill and made
available for the home.
Construction on the home
was started the first of the
year and the family moved in
about two months ago, accord-
ing to Mrs. Taunton, who has
done much of the finish work
on the inside of the home
herself.
"We're now open for accept-
ing children and we are
looking for homeless children
to accept into our home",
Judge Taunton said. He said

cover from the bad period.

out-scoring them 28-18.

man for the Gators with his 17
points. Boyd Walden led
Sneads with 26.

planning for the beautifica-
tion of the area and the full-
fillment of the many needs
evidenced in the area. One of
the primary projects this year

planned each evening that the
weather is pretty, at the
Christmas Tree site on Main
Street. Refreshments will be

donation box present. All
donations will go to the
Planning Board, to help de-
fray the expenses of the varied
projects in progress.
The Planning Board also
constructed a float for. the
Christmas parade, which won
the first place prize money of
$100. The Planning Board
extends its thanks to the many
individuals who worked so
hard on this project, contri-
buting both their time, efforts
and money.
The Board is also planning
fruit boxes, etc. for the elderly'
and needy for the holiday
season. The Board solicits
help on this project from any
other organization or church
desiring to help.

Votes for

Fund Bill
Congressman Earl Hutto,
(D-Fla.), announced in Wash-
ington recently that he had
voted in favor of the omnibus
reconciliation bill to reduce
the fiscal 1981 deficit by $8.6
billion. This bill provides for
spending cuts totaling ap-
proximately $5 billion in out-
lays and revenue increases of
$3.6 billion for fiscal year 1981.
"A number of very con-
cerned constituents have
called my office about cost-of-
living provision in the bill,"
said Congressman Hutto. "At
one stage the COLA provision
was to have been changed to
an annual increase rather
than semiannual as a measure
to save the budget about $700
million. However, I am
pleased to say that, in the final
version, the semiannual cost-
of-living benefit paid to civil
service and military retirees
was retained.
The reconciliation bill
evolved from the 96th Con-
gress' efforts to restrain grow-
th in federal spending. In
addition to this effort, revenue
raising measure were in-
cluded and allowances for a
possible tax cut which would
come up in the 97th Congress
when it convenes next year.

Fireplaces Nice but Need Regular Attention


Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
If you have a fireplace in your home,
now's the time to think about using it as
more than just a decorative device. A
fireplace can be an economical altern-
ative heating source in these days of
soaring electric, oil and gas prices
especially here in Florida, where we often
only want to take the chill out of the
evening or early morning air.
The use of fireplaces is one way to
conserve energy and cut home heating
expenses by reducing the use of more
costly conventional fuels. One of the
advantages of using firewood is that it is a
renewable energy source. And, wood is


much lower in irritating pollutants than
other fuels.
The first thing to do is to check your
fireplace, and determine whether it's in
good working condition. Check to see if
the fireplace has firesafe linings, smoke
ducts, and a working damper, And, make
sure the chimney is free of obstructions.
So, you might want to leave a window
open a bit to provide extra air. Before
lighting the fire, be sure the damper is
open and the flue is clear.
Carefully choose the wood you'll burn in'
your fireplace. Just any old wood won't
do. Don't burn wet or green wood. Use of
damp or unseasoned wood increases
production of flamable wood tars which


could coat the chimney flue and cause a
serious chimney fire if ignited. You'll
want to look for two types of wood to use
in your fireplace. First, choose a soft
wood such as pine, spruce or fir, these are
easy to ignite and burn rapidly with a hot
flame, such woods are good for starting a
fire; second, choose hardwoods such as
uak, hickory or ash for their slow burning
qualities woods that produce heat for an
extended period of time. A combination of
softwood for easy lighting with hardwood
for longer burning makes an ideal fire.
Firewood can be bought, or may be
found in dumps, landfills, construction
sites or storm damaged areas. If you find
a particular hard or softwood you'd like to
use that's wet or green, you can season it


yourself for use next year. Set the wood
out to dry underneath a shed or roof for
about 6 to 8 months. Splitting the logs
lengthwise will quicken the drying
process.
Now, if you've inspected your fireplace
for safety hazards, clean it out and gather
the right kinds of wood, you're ready to
start your fire. Use a combination of
softwood for quick igniting and hardwood
for longer burning. And, once your fire is
lit, remember this cardinal rule of
fireplace management: Keep a thick bed
of ashes under the grate to form a bed for
the blowing coals. These coals provide a
steady heat and help ignite new wood that
is added to the fire. But, check to make


sure that the ashes don't pile up closer
than an inch or two from the bottom of the
grate. A greater accumulation could
damage and block the flow of air to the
fire. Always keep a screen in front of your
fireplace to catch any flying sparks.
To quickly summarize, fireplaces can
be valuable supplemental heating sour-
ces; but they do present some hazards.
They require extra ventilation. Both the
fireplace and chimney should be checked
regularly for obstructions, or other
potential causes of faulty operation. Burn
only well seasoned wood, and finally,
maintain a thick bed of ashes, about two
inches beneath your fire grate to keep
coals burning longer.

College Loans


The cost of going to col-
lege has risen dramatically
over the past few years. This
is no surprise to any of you
today. If you either have a
child now in college or are at-
tempting to finance your own
way through school, the con-
stant escalation in tuition,
room and board, books, or
whatever, has made your case
even more difficult. Help
may be available to you
through .some "good"'
federal programs for a
change. Congress has paved
the way for more low-cost
loan money to help finance
college education by revising
the whole student loan pro-
gram to help families cope
with these increased costs.
While I have marked my
political career by fighting in-
creases in federal programs, I
do believe that beneficial pro-
grams should be continued
and supported. The funding
of education is one important
aspect of federal program-
ming and I have continued to
support assistance to parents
and to students interested in
educational advancement.
Here's how the government
can help:
Beginning January 1,
1981, students and parents
can borrow up to $5,500 per
year through the old
Guaranteed Student Loan
Program and the new Parents
Loan Program.
Under the new program,
graduate students can borrow
up to $25,000 over five years
and undergraduates can bor-
row up to $12,500 over the
same time. However, the new
interest rate will be 9% (in-
stead of 7%) for students just
* entering the program.
(Students who are already
under this program at the 7%
rate will be able to continue
borrowing at this'lower rate.)
In today's money market,
either 7 or 9 percent is much
lower than you could obtain
under any other type of loan.
In addition to raising the
*loan limits and adjusting the
percentage slightly to reflect


today's rates, Congress also
created an entirely new type
of loan aimed at parents.
Beginning January 1st,
* parents with children in col-
lege may borrow up to $3,000
a year at 9% to help pay for
their children's education.
The limit for up to five years
.will be $15,000. This parents'
program is limited, however,
to undergraduate studies, not
graduate work. Furthermore,
unlike the student loan pro-
gram, parents have to start
paying interest 60 days after
their loans go into effect. (In
the student loan program, the
"student does not have to start
paying off the loan until 9
months after leaving college.)
Many of these loans
should be available through
local banks and credit
unions. If you would like
more information on these
programs, contact the finan-
cial aid office at one of our
local colleges. I'm sure that
they will be happy to discuss
the Guaranteed Student Loan
Program or the Parents Loan
Program with you.

Ginger Cake

This week Nancy selected
a recipe by Mrs. John J.'
Flynt, Jr., wife of the former
Congressman from Georgia.
Jack retired in 1978 after ser-
ving in the House for 26
years.

V2 cup vegetable shortening
V2 cup sugar
2V2 cups sifted flour
1 cup sorghum
2 teaspoons baking soda
V2 teaspoon salt
2 'eggs,
1 cup boiling water
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinna-
mon
V2 teaspoon ground cloves
V2 teaspoon' allspice

Combine all ingredients -and
mix thoroughly. Pour into a
greased, shallow 10 x 13 inch
baking pan and bake at 350'
about 1 hour.


With winter fast approach-
ing, it soon will be time for
major tree and shrub planting
and transplanting. There are
several advantages in plant-
ing during the winter, instead
of waiting until spring. The
plants are not actively grow-
ing during this time and less
apt to be injured by shock
from planting. Too, the
weather and moisture during
the winter season is very
conducive to good plant ad-
justment as well as good
working weather for the
gardener.
Winter planting of trees and
shrubs allows the plants to
become well established prior
to spring growth and bloom,
also summer heat. Research
shows that roots of plants
continue to grow and develop
during mild winter days, even
though foliage does not.
You will find also that your
nurseryman has a good stock
of plants during the fall and
winter, and too, he can give
you more time and attention
during this season, whereas he
cannot during the rush of
spring.
The success of your land-
scape will depend greatly on
your ability to select plants
which will fit your particular
landscape need and situation.
Trees are always a must in
most landscape whether their
purpose is for shade, wind-
breakers, food setting or
atmosphere, to add color and
beauty with bloom and foli-
age, or to add esthetic and real
estate value to the property.
Th ideal landscape tree
does not exist. Trees which
have desirable features also
have those that are undesir-
able. A tree may have beauti-
ful flowers in the spring,
followed by undesirable fruit
or seed pods in the fall. If a
tree is a fast grower, it may
also be brittle and shortlived.
All trees have advantages
and disadvantages, thi your
selection must be carefully
considered. Points for con-
sideration in choosing the
proper tree should include the
following: (1) Be sure the tree
you choose will fit your
landscape need. For example,
fast growing for quick shade,
broad and spreading for
shade, dense for a wind-
breaker or for screening or
attractive blooms for an ac-
cent. (2) Know the tree you
select and its growth require-
ments. Know the tree's ulti-
mate size and plant accord-
ingly. Does the tree require

The following recommenda-

-Check Christmas lights

cracked sockets and plugs. Do
not use more than three sets of
lights on any extension cord.
When leaving your house, or
before retiring for the night,
unplug the lights.
-If your tree is metallic,
use indirect spot lights instead
of strings of lights. If the sharp
edges of metallic trees cut
electric cord insulation, the
entire tree will become elect-
rically charged and cause
severe shock.
-When decorating live
trees, use flame-retardant or
noncombustible ornaments,
such as glass. Never use
candles on or near a tree, and
do not hang metallic "icicles"
over wires or tree lights.
"Angel hair" and spray on

ible combination. Use one or
the other, never both. Always

-To prolong the freshness
of a tree, keep water, in the
holder above the tree's cut
line. When the needles beginto
fall in quantity, the tree is too
dry for safety; dispose of it.
-Never burn used wrap-
pings, cartons, or ribbons in
the fireplace. Flare-ups and
noxious odors can occur from
burning toxic plastics. Be sure
the fire screen is in place any
time a fire is burning.
-As a final precaution,
parents should not leave
