This Thing Which



Has Come to Pass

And it came to pass in those days, that there went
out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world
should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when
Cyrenius was governor of Syria).
And all went to be taxed, everyone into his own
city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the
city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David,
which is called Bethlehem;, (because he was of the
house and lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary
his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the
dayswere accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped
him' in swaddling clothes, and. laid him in a manger;
because there was no room for them in the inn.,
And there were in the same country shepherds
abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by
night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them,
,and the glory of the Lord shone round about them:
and they were sore. afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for
behold,. Ibring you good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in
'the'city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the
babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a
manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a:
multitude .of the heavenly host praising God, and say-.
'ing, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away
f0obm them into' heaven, the 'shepherds said one to
another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see
this thing which is come to pass, :which the Lord hath
made known to us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and
J]seph, and the babe lying :in a manger. And when.
they had seen it, they made kno~.'n abroad the saying ,
which was told them concerning this, child. And all
they that heard it wondered at those things i\ which'
were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and 'pondered
them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glori-
fying and praising God for all the things that they had
heard and seen, as it was told unto them,.


was about a week before
Christmas, maybe less. Any-
way, the Christmas Season
was in full swing and down-
town Pensacola was covered
with shoppers. There was also
an abundance' of Salvation
Army "Bell Ringers" station-
ed throughout the downtown
area.
While waiting outside a
.store for my Uncle and Aunt, I
noticed one of the bell ringers,
standing in the cold and


thanking everyone that contri-
buted to the cause. I had never
seen one and asked an older
cousin what he was doing. He
explained that the bell ringer
was collecting money for the
unfortunate people who didn't
even have food to eat at
Christmas time. I could not
imagine anyone that disad-
vantaged and after thinking
about it for a minute or two, I
walked to the station and
dropped fifty cents into the


pot.
When my Uncle returned
and found out what I had done
he was furious! "Boy, you are
a fool!" he exclaimed. "You
have just thrown away good
money. I thought you had
better sense than that!"
I feared that I had commit-
ted, a grave mistake, so on
returning home I immediately
confessed to my Mother. I will
never forget that night and my
dear Mother's reply after I
told her what I had done.
"Son," she said, looking down
at me with a faint smile on her
face, "I can't think of any-
thing better you could have
done with that money. You
don't know how proud I am of
youl"
That was one of the most
unforgettable moments of my
life and one that I shall
remember and cherish always


about my Mother and Christ-
mas.
Thinking back and seeing
things as they are now, I
believe that Christmas is
taken too lightly. I don't mean
that Christmas should be
depressing and drab, but there
is too much emphasis on
parties, gifts and cards in-
stead of reflection and thank-
fulness and, more than any-
thing, love.
If I had one wish at
Christmas it would be that
everyone, in the whole wide
world, would be happy and
untroubled during Christmas,
if only for that one day.
In view of the unlikely
prospect of that wish coming
true, I want to wish everyone
of you and yours a most Happy
Holiday Season and. a very
MERRY CHRISTMASH !!

Putting Up the Christmas Tree Is An



Ever-Changing Chore As Time Passes


IF, YOU DON'T GET that Christ-
Sfas tree. up before the week end is out,
it'll be too late to do anything about it
except be a Florida Gator... you know,
S huck it all and say, "Wait until next .
year".
Getting up the Christmas tree is
getting to be a big operation. Maybe it
was a big operation all along, but I
tiever noticed it so much before because
I had such a lot of help to get my
Ghristtmas tree up into a reasonably
p4right position and decorated in the
latest of Christmas fashions.
We have always used live Christ-
iflas trees at our house, so that in itself
adds to the trouble each and every year
ot putting up a tree. It's not like just
getting a carton down out of the back of
the closet, dusting it off and putting one
otthose plastic reasonable facsimiles of
aChristmas tree, which has no smell,
Sn dripping needles and no pine tar to


drip on the floor.
IN YEARS PAST I have always
had more than ample help in getting up
the Christmas tree.
For years, there was always a
bunch of kids coming along who were
more than eager to get a Christmas tree
up, decorated and lighted for the yule
season. Even when they got too big for
Santa Claus, they were still not too big
for Christmas trees.
Our kids sort of overlapped one
another and when one left home to start
a home of his own, there was always
another one right behind to take his
place at helping with putting up the
Christmas tree.
When the time finally came when
we had ran out of kids at home,, there
were grandchildren large enough to
want to help put up the Christmas trees


at "Memaw's arid Papaw's". H
never one of our problems when
to Christmas tree time. The
problem we had was in sa
enough bulbs, etc., from the tri
hand to floor, to properly decol

to get


involved in putting up two Christmas
trees, so that leaves the whole job to
Frenchie and I.
It saves on ornaments, but it is
tough on backs which haven't kept up
with the demands placed on it.
+++
DON'T GET ME wrong. I don't
loath the job of having to put up the
Christmas tree. It's going to get done
and get done in plenty of time. for
Christmas. The only thing which will be
different is that most of the work will be
re-distributed from its normal source.
When I have to start making
choices about what to give up at
Christmas time, putting up the Christ-
mas tree is going to be one of the last
things to go. As long as there is a
Christmas at our house, I hope there is
a Christmas tree.


AS I TOLD you at the outset, we
don't put up those plastic imitations of a
Christmas tree. I can't imagine a
Christmas without the smell of a
genuine green, live Christmas tree. The
plastic ones look fine until you get close
enough to smell of it, and then it's
evident the Christmas tree isn't a
Christmas tree at all.
I don't fault those who can manage
to get by with the plastic imitations.
Eveyone has his own idea about such
things. Mine just happens to be to go
with the live tree and it's something I'm
not going to change about, even if it is
handy, clean, safe, economical, non-.
allergenic, etc. Some things I'm just
stubborn about and live Christmas
trees is one of them.
MY TREE IS UP. It sort of leans to
port, has a few naked limbs and a
broken one or two. A few lights are out


and the icicles are falling off on the
floor. Rachel the housedog has jumped
up and grabbed an ornament or two for
a chew, but after all, it's her first
Christmas and she's expected to get-
excited.
The grandchildren haven't pawed
this tree quite as much as the ones in
the past, but they're getting too
sophisticated now to be too excited over
Santa Claus. A Christmas tree to them
is a pretty decoration to be admired,
and not an institution to be handled.
I don't think there is even a
package with the corner torn open as
yet. The candy canes are slowly
disappearing but the kids are not too old
to like a little candy along.
The tree is up and Christmas is just
days away. I hope it isn't as hard to get
into the notion to take it down when the
time comes as it was to get in the mood
to put it up without much help.

I have been here for quite
some time trying to decide
.what I will write. Christmas is
one day that is written about
more than any other holiday
we have. It is certainly the
Holiday that deserves that
prominence. After all, it is the
Birthday of Jesus Christ and
He is the foundation for all we
have and hope to have on 'this
earth, regardless of what
some may think or say.
Christmas is a subject that
strikes terror'in a writer, at
least this one. What can I say
that would be, in any way,
original? Not one thing! Nor
will I attempt to. I will say
this, though, I have some very
strong feelings about Christ-.
mas and I would like to share
some of them with you.
Christmas is the most joy-i-
o tmeof the yearfor most:
people. For me it is the
saddest, most emotional time
of the year. Perhaps it is
because there were some sad
and uneventful Christmases
during .my childhood. More
than likely, though, it was
because Christmas was a sad
time for others and I was
taught to share, especially at
Christmas,. with those more
unfortunate than myself.
I recall being invited to go,
on a shopping trip with an',
Uncle and his family. When I
asked my Mother she said it
would be all right and gave me ;
one dollar to spend. I was -
about ten years old and a
dollar was like one hundred is
now. I could not believe my
good fortune.
To the best of my memory it

increases sharply after the

Lt. Colonel Roger C Collar,
acting director. of th Patrol
said, "In 1981, drinki made
up nine percent of the, contri-

third most important single
factor 'listed for all "ypes of

The figures indicate that
drinking drivers tenJ to be
involved in the more serious
accidents and, according to
Collar, some special studies
have shown that at least half

SJust remember,"' Collar
concluded, "if you continue to

vice will all be resting, but they will

New Equipment Installed


Sylvachem Start-Up


Delayed for
Sylvachem Corporation's
plant here in Port St. Joe, is
utilizing a period of being
shut down to install a new
piece of equipment which is
designed to make the plant
more economical to oper-
ate and'bring costs more
into line with what they
should be, according to
plant manager, Mike Tem-
pleton.
The new piece of equip-
ment is a dow therm
heater, which is replacing 4
an older piece of equipment
with a new one with a
larger capacity. The equip-
ment is an open flame
boiler which heats a heat
transfer agent used in the
distillation of tall oil from
paper mill residue at the
plant.
The new unit will use
natural gas as a fuel,
making it virtually pollu-
tion free.
Meanwhile Sylvachem
has announced a delay in
its planned Monday start-
up. Templeton said the
tentative start-up has been
pushed back two days to
Wednesday, December 29.
"Our inventory level has
not come down as much as. .
we had hoped. More of our A+ A ,
customers have shut down ',.'.. -
during the holidays than
"eiitpiected. This-ras-Foreed NT
us to delay our start-up",
he said.
,The start-up date has
been labeled as tentative, '
with a final decision ex-
pected Monday. Templeton
added, "I regret that a firm
date cannot be set at this
time. I know the uncertain-
ty will create some prob-
lems for our employees.,
However, right now, we
simply do not have enough
information to allow us to
make a decision which is in'
the best interest of our.
business and our employ-;
ees." All employees are
requested to contact the. ,
plant Monday afternoon
concerning the plant start-
up date and associated
shift work schedules.

Fire Siren

Cries "Wolf"
Drowsy voices flooded the
telephone lines calling the
police and fire departments
early Tuesday morning, as the
city's fire sirens shorted and
spent some 30 minutes or so,
wailing and shrieking into the
night.
Some thought the alarm was
some kind of evacuation war-
ning and questioned the night
operator at the emergency
telephone. at City Hall about
whether or not they should
S leave home.
a- City Clerk, Alden Farris
said Tuesday morning, the
alarm was set off when a short
.occurred somewhere in the
fire siren system, which took
some 30 minutes or so to locate
andshut the sirens off.
The sirens started their
voluntary wailing near mid-
night and continued for nearly
a full half hour. Wednesday
morning, permanent repairs
were started to the system.
The same thing happened to
the system some two years
ago, but the sirens had the
decency to go bad during the
day rather than in the middle
of the night.

am nine years old. I hope you
are doing well with your elfs
and choosing presents. I live
in Wewahitchka, Florida. I
have been a good little girl this
year. But my sister did
something bad Wednesday
evening.
My mom told her not to let
the cat in because my bird vas
out of her pen. But my sister
Jennifer let the cat in anyway.
The cat started chasing the
bird. The cat caught the bird
and ate it. Jennifer started
screaming and my moma ran
in the room where Jennifer
was at. When mom told me I
got mad but I tryed to calm
my nerves. I know she's been
a bad girl but please get her
something. I have been making
art for Christmas. I love all of
the presents you .give me. I
love all -of the teachers, but I
do like school holiday.
You have been so good to me
I don't know what to give you.
All I know what to give you is
this letter. I have friends to
share my break with. They
are nice to me. I. like, the

everyone lunch!

and the Chrismas tree in our
room with pretty lights and
ornents,! I like everything,
counting you! Please excuse
me I know this isn't very well
but I hope you can read it. I
would like to ask a few
questions. How are you doing
with your presents? Are you
going to do the Chrismas
parade? That's about all but

holiday. It's the time to share
love.

Decorate


with Plants

By Roy Lee Carter County Extension Director


leaves. The plant should be
placed in the coolest part of
the room, but not in a cold
draft.. This means away from
radiators and other sources of
heat. A temperature of 65
degrees at night is satisfac-
tory but 60 degrees is still
better for most of the flower-
ing potted plants. In fact,
'cyclamen like a' 50 degree
night temperature.
The method of watering
many times determines the
life of a plant. Many drown
their plants by; watering at
regular intervals, not consi-
dering whether the plant
needs it. Plant roots need air
as well as water, and exces-
sive amounts of water do not
allow a place for air in the soil.
Overwatering literally smo-
thers the plant roots. Proper
watering calls for a little
thoughtfulness and often exer-
cise of restraint. Water should
be applied in sufficient quanti-
ties to thoroughly soak the soil
in the pot and no more given
until the soil approaches dry-
ness again. Plants should be
checked for dryness daily but
not watered if the soil is still
moist.
Remember that most holi-
day plants have been out of a
greenhouse a short period.
The difference -between a
greenhouse environment and
a typical indoor. room is
usually considerable. In the
home provide as much natural
light as possible. A dark
bedroom, hall entrance foyer
or living room does not have
optimum growing conditions.
Place your plants where they
receive the morning sun. Poor
light will cause leaf drop.
Although the humidity in a-
house is not easily altered,
plants will do best in an area
of the house where the humidi-
ty is the greatest. This is
usually in the cooking area. It
often helps if plants are set on
pebble-filled saucers with wat-
er maintained at a level just
below the base of the pot so
that it doesn't touch the water.
By giving your Christmas
pot plants the best environ-


A bright, colorful azalea,
Christmas begonis, chrysan-
themums or a gaily decorated
poinsettis, cyclamen or
Christmas pepper added to the
other decorations in the home
give the holiday season a
festive air. My information for
this article was provided by
Extension Horticulturist Dr.
Robert J. Black.
These Christmas plants can
be enjoyed not only during the
Holidays but will remain
attractive far into January.
and even February if properly
cared for. Care of Christmas
plants, whether a colorful
cyclamen, a long-lasting Ka-
lanchoe, or a cheerful Christ-
mas begonia, is easy. Faithful
attention will add days and
even weeks of life to any of
these popular Christmas
plants.
Temperature has an import-
ant influence on the length of
time a flowering house plant
will remain attractive. 'The

creasingly alarmed oer ihe
possibility of more restrictions.
As a result, they are anxious to
assist in resolving present trade
disparities.
Despite the mans problems
that exist between the U.S. and
Japan, there are plenty of en -
couraging signs in our relation-
ship. Trade officials from both
the U.S. and Japan admit in
private that, in spite of the
problems, they much prefer
negotiating with the .Japanese to
fiegotiating with our European
allies. It is hoped that, through
continued negotiation and com-
pr6mise, the present disparity
between U.S. and Japan trade .*
interests will be resolved.

The' congenial trade rela-
Sionship which has existed be-
tween Japn- and the 'United
Stares since' the end of World
W.a'r.Il may be coming to a
close With an ailing U.S.
economy, there is increased sup-
p.ort 'for trade restrictions on
Japan'ese |mporls and a general

ally. ,
For years, the Japanese have
advers'eN t impacted our nation's
automobile and steel industries.
I The result has been thousands
of, displaced U S. jobs and
millions of dollars in lost
business revenue. Coupled wnhth
the latest unemployment raie of
10.4(o, our trade deficit with
the' Japanese is expected .to
reach $20 billion b\ the end of
the-year.' up from $16 billion in
1981.' 'N i 'only is there great
concern over these factors, but
.current Japanese efforts to
boost high-technology involve-.
men'r is gaining artention as
well. It is the high-technology
industries, such as coinputers,
telecommunications and
biotechnology, that will prob-
ably determine the U.S. trade
position' irthe future, although
older inditsiries like automobile
and steel are presently being
harmed?"'1':
The U.S. response has been
centered around encouraging
vbluniary cuibacks'mn Japanese
exports to the LI.S.. and Admin-
istraition suggestions that Japan
li't, import barriers alfecting
U.S. g6ods. While these efforts
ha\e had a positive impact on
easing the imbalance between
" the U S. and Japanese trade,
there has been liule.noticeable
effect on the major industries
such as automobile and steel
Manufacturers.
The present U S focus is
expected to change in the near
' future. An increased array of
protectionist bills are expected
to be introduced in the 9Sth
, Ciongress. As an example of
S"'whai 'is to be expected, the.
House is presenil considering
. a "domestic content" bill. This
, legislation requires that 909'0 of

Sin 'the U.S. be American-made -.
In addition, legislation is being

Hanlon

Qualifies

For Boston
For the third straight year,
James Hanlon qualified to
enter the world famous Boston
Marathon, in the second
annual Tyndall Marathon
which was held December 11,
at Tyndall Air Force Base.
Hanlon won the Master Divi-
sion (40 and over) in the time
of three hours and six seconds
(3:06:50), 11th over all. This
time qualified him to enter the'
Boston Marathon next year.
Hanlon said, "The race was
under steady rain fall. It felt
like I ran 26.2 miles in two
inches or more of water. The
course was all right, but the
conditions were bad."


Fires


Spoil


Yule
The Christmas season.
should be a time of great
cheer, but all too often it
tragically turns to a time of
sorrow because fire safety is
neglected.
"People become so caught-
up in the gaity of the season, in
pretty decorations and roman-
tic fireplaces that they often
don't consider the safety fact-
or," says Division of Forestry
Chief Michael C. Long.
"Most accidental fires in-
side and outside the house are
caused by oversight rather
than unconcern," Long said..
"A little planning as you put,
up your decorations will, for
the most part, allow you to
carry on safely during the
remainder of the season with-
'5yj out much thought about
them."
The Division of Forestry
offers the following i10-point
checklist for fire safety: Use
only electrical devices 'that
carry the U.L. seal of approv-
al; Never used frayed electri-
cal cords; Use lights specified
to be outdoor safe for decora-
tions outside the house; Don't
use electrical lights. on metal
trees. Light such trees with
floodlights, inaking sure the
lights are out of reach of
children and pets;
Don't overload outlets (or
extension cords); Don't run
extension cords under rugs, on
hooks, or through doors; Don't
use lighted candles on Christ-
mas 'trees; Be sure plastic
trees and decorations are
fire-resistant; Don't allow na-
tural Christmas trees to, dry
.out (don't place them near
heaters, fireplaces or 'air
conditioning-heating vents be-
cause this will cause them to
dry out quicker); Always use
fire screens on fireplaces.
The, Division of Forestry

traditional wildfire season and
that special caution should be
exercised with outdoor fire.

ing are illegal in Florida. Your

A coffee, set in the festively
decorated Christmas motif at
the Activity Center for Re-
tarded Adults, honored mem-
bers of the Community Ser-
vice Art Guild for their
generous sponsorship of the
Center during the year.
The holiday table ladened
with a variety of delicacies

panying poinsettias. A crystal
bowl of frothy scarlet punch
was central to the beautiful
array of colorful finger foods.
The Center's clientele and

party food and enjoyed a
background of lovely Christ-

Why do the bells of
Christmas ring?
Why do the little children
sing?
,Once a lovely shining
star,
Seen by shepherds from
afar,
Gently moved until its
light
Made a manger's cradle
bright.
There a darling baby lay,
Pillowed soft upon the
hay;
And its mother sung and
smiled:
"This is Christ, the holy
Child."
Therefore bells for
Christmas ring,
Therefore little children
sing.

poised for action by the full
Senate possibly even before
this column is printed. -
Congratulations are dye to
Sens. Lawton Chiles and Paula
Hawkins for their perserverence
in moving the bill through the
Senate and in proposing some
minor modifications which
removed the objections of Sen.
Howard, Metzenba'um (D-Ohio).
The changes simply address
the method of compensating
the four companies holding
preferential lease rights to mine
in the Osceola and I will recom-
mend that the House of
Representatives accept these'
changes when the bill is approv-
ed by 'the Senate and referred
back to the House.
.By accepting -the ;Senate
amendment we will eliminate
the need for a conference com-
mittee on the bill and it can be
forwarded to President Reagan
for his signature.
I. am convinced that
members of the House of
Representatives, which: has
overwhelmingly approved the
legislation in the last two Con-
gresses, will agree 'with my
recommendation to accept,the
Senate language.

.* *' *, .

I' voted last week against a
five cent increase in the gasoline
,,tax for two reasons:
The distribution formula was
not sufficiently' detailed to
assure Florida would get its fair
share of the tax for badly need-
ed road maintenance; and the
unjustified haste with which the
issue was presented left insuf-
ficient time for adequate study
and revision of the provisions.
The bill passed the House by
more thanp100 votes and,;even
though I opposed it, ,lthe,
guarantee insuring each state
will receive at least 85 cents on
every dollar raised by the new
tax from within the state remov-
ed many of my objections.
I was also pleased that wor-
ding was included which
assured that some of the funds
raised could be allocated to
secondary roads.
While I feel that it would
have been wiser to wait until the
new Congress takes office to
enact this legislation, I believe
that the bill as passed is as good
as can be expected under the
hurried conditions that sur-
rounded it.

I voted last week to delete
from next years budget nearly
$1 billion for procurement of the
MX Missile, which is still
undergoing research and
development.
.1: i ]makes little sense to me to
.jhfla'te the national budget for
procurement of a weapons
stem which is'not yet ready
for deployment.
While I am opposed to pro-
curement of the system, I.also
feel the nation-should proceed
with -its development so that
when and if research is conclud-
ed and a deployment plan is ap-
proved we have the option of
adding this system to our na-
tional arsenal.


Human beings are the only
animals that can blush.

we're the only animals that
need to.
