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 tax-
ed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was gover-
nor of Syria).

And all went tor 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 tax-
ed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were ac-
complished 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, I bring
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 saying, Glory to God in the
highest, and on earth peace, good will to men. :
And it came to pass, as the angels wereigone away froi
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 Mar,; and Joseph,
and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it,

they made known abroad the saying which was told them con-
cerning this child. And all they that, heard it wondered at those
things which were told therhm bytheshepherds.,

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her
heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God
for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told
Sunto them.

when I know, there are

SChristmas is a time for

plenty of good food. People
should be' thankful for the

More than- any of the above,
Christmas is a' time for
reverence and worship. We
have a tendency to overlook
this most important aspect of

I cani never remember

We were not "dirt poor," we
were just disadvantaged for

don't remember what was

received new clothes, shoes
and my aunt always gave

kind. They look like baby
socks but they fit any size

We always had plenty to

With the cool nights and nippy air

a squirrel, squirrelling away his
dinner for a cold, bleak day, whe ,'
there would be nothing to eat lying
around outside.
There is a colony of squirrels
living at the .corner of my yard, Bill
Rich's, John Miller's and Greg
Turner's. There is a vacant lot there
with lots of underbrush and trees on it,
and the squirrels have found them-
selves a home there. They have,


at the rear corner of the yard which
meets the squirrel's property. They
also live on my pecan tree, my
Japanese plum tree and my pear tree.
I guess you could call them share
croppers. The only difference in them
and share croppers is that a share
cropper harvests a crop on shares.
The squirrels harvest the crops, all
right, but they don't share much.
When I think of it, I put out some

The squirrels like them.

The other day, .Frenchie was

what 'should greet her at the 'door, but
a squirrel, which had been in the
utility room, helping himself to the
pecans. He had his jaw full and was on
his way out of the room, going back to
his trusty tree.
Ever since that happened, I have
been trying to figure out how the
squirrel knew the pecans were in the
utility room and how did he find them
after he got inside?
JERRY REAM found out what we
go through each and every week this
month. Jerry has been leading his
senior citizens in compiling a cook
book publication for selling as a
fund-raising project.

special
ie ads,


put the pages in order and did all the
collating (bringing the pages together'
in proper order) while The Star
printed the publication for him.,
Jerry says many of his seniors
will not speak to him now, after he
talked them into tackling that project.
They found out that a periodical may
not look like it, but there is a PILE of
work there, in getting it printed,
bound and ready for sale.
Jerry mentioned what they were
going to do in their next edition of the
seniors' cook book two years or more
from now, and they nearly chased him
'out of the room.
Selling someone who never has
embarked on such a project, into
producing and doing much of the work
on a cook book publication is just
inviting your own murder after the
'people find out what you have talked
them into.
I'm waiting to see if Jerry is still
going to be among us after the first of
the year.

.Take Two Wins In Week 's Play Over Mosley and Trinity -7


Port St. Joe's Sharks now
have a string of six wins
under their belt this season,
with not a single loss to mar
their standings.
According to .coach Jim
Belin, the Sharks are only
honorable mention in state-
wide standings. "That's right
where we want to be", Belin
said. The standing gives the
team state credibility but
doesn't make it the target of


every team seeking to knock
off a state contender.
Friday night, the Sharks
edged a strong Mosley High
School team, 65-56 in the
Panama City school's gym.
Riding their hot free throw
shooting, the Sharks scored
on 17 free throws in 24
attempts, while the Dolphins
were able to capitalize on
only 12 of 24.
Durey Cadwell was the


leading scorer for the Sharks
with 17 points. Six of his
points came in the final
minute as the Sharks pulled
away from the Dolphins.
Mike Pittman scored 14
points, Josh Jenkins, 16 and
Doug Robinson 10 as the
Sharks had four players
scoring in the double figures.

phins with 16 points-

Alcohol

Menace


In Gulf
Statistics indicate there
are 640 people with drinking
problems in Gulf County,
Tunie Miller, director of the
Panhandle Alcoholic Council
told the Kiwanis Club Tues-
day.
Mrs, Miller said most of
these people who -fall. within
the statistical figures, do not
seek professional help with
their problem. "We saw 88
different individuals in Gulf
County, with alcoholic prob-
lems during the past year"
the speaker said.
The PAC is part of a six
county group which operates
.a "detox center" in Panama
City and half-way houses in
Panama City and Lake City.
Mrs. Miller pointed out
that when she first started
with PAC some six or seven
years ago, the. median age
for her clients was around 50
to 60 years of age. "Now the
majority of our referrals are
in their 20's or even their
teeps", the counselor said.
The speaker said, "I see
teens, 13, 14 and 15 years old
with alcoholic problems on
almost" a weekly basis",
pointing out the prevalence
of alcoholism in'the youth of
today.
Ondeof the services provid-
ed by PAC is to operate
driving schools where those
convicted of driving under
the influence, must spend 12
hours of study and instruc-
tion as part of their penalty.
"We killed more people on
our highways with alcohol-
related crashes in the past
two years than there were
Americans killed in Vietnam
in 10 years of war", Miller
pointed out. In just the past
six months, there have been
29 traffic deaths proven to be
related to alcohol, in just this
six county area of Gulf, Bay,
Jackson, Holmes, Washing-
ton and Calhoun counties.
Mrs. Miller said alcohol
dependency is becoming a
worsening problem. "We of-
fer our services to., help
anyone who seeks it", she
said.
Guests of the club were
Key Clubbers Leann Clen-
ney, Donna Jones, Tony
Beard and Jack Collinsworth

Dredging Not Up to


Inspector Says Not Enough Material Being Removed from Pond


The City Commission
made the decision Tuesday
night to call the prime
contractor to task concerning
the requirements for dredg-
ing the holding pond at the
Wastewater Treatment
Plant.
Working on the advice of
City Inspector, E. F. Gunn
that the dredging is not up to
specifications for removal of
sludge, the Commission de-


cided to send an official
communication to Defendor-
Vactor, of Columbia, S.C.,
that specifications for re-
moval are not being met.
Gunn reminded the Com-
mission the specifications
call for a removal of sludge
to an average of eight feet
above sea level with peaks no
higher than 8.5 feet above
sea level. Gunn said the
average of the area which


has already been dredged is
8.23 feet above sea level with
several spots up to five feet
higher, where the dredge
evidently missed.
Gunn and the engineers,
Jones, Edmunds and Asso-
ciates said the dredging firm
could still meet the average
by taking more sludge than
prescribed out of the re-
mainder of the pond, in order
to bring the average down.


About half the pond has been
dredged.
Commissioner Billy Flem-
ing suggested the firm be
required to meet the average
and that no level above 8.5
feet be permitted anywhere
in the pond, as the specifica-
tions call for. His suggestion
met with the approval of the
Board, as it re-affirmed the
original specifications of the
dredging contract.


Oyster Harvest Stopped

Production May Be Opened Friday Morning


Gulf County's lone oyster
producer, Indian Pass Seafood
Company is still on the hold as far
as oyster production is concern-
ed. A week ago, the Department
of Natural Resources shut down
Indian Lagoon to harvesting
oysters, due to what they-termed
a higher than normal bacteria
count. Indian Lagoon was shut
down following the closing of
Apalachicola Bay to oyster harv-
vesting for the same reason. The
closures seem to come after a rise
in the Apalachicola River level
which brings more water into the
oyster producing area, raising the
bacteria count.
Jim McNeill, owner and
operator of Indian Pass Seafood,
said yesterday he expected to get
the green light to begin harvest-
ing again at daylight Friday
morning. "They're taking an-
other testing Wednesday. They
will put it in the lab Thursday and
have a decision by Thursday
afternoon. But, they will not allow
us to continue harvesting until
daylight Friday, even if the
results are good when the- tests


are run Thursday morning",
McNeill said.
McNeill takes issue with the
testing program, saying the test
isn't accurate, nor is it indicative
of whether or not the oysters in
the Lagoon or Apalachicola Bay
are fit for human consumption or
not.
McNeill said the Bay and
Lagoon were seldom if ever
closed to production while the
Department of Health was mak-
ing the periodic tests. "Since
DNR took over the testing, you
can almost bet on being closed
at least once a year", he said.
Both the Bay and Lagoon
have been closed twice already
this season. Heavy area rainfall
instigated a closing order for
three days in early October.
McNeill says the method of
testirp never considers the cofdi-
tion 4of the oyster meat itself.
"The tests are taken from water
dipped from the top of the Lagoon
and the oysters lie on the
bottom", McNeill said. He also

objects to the location where the
tests are taken from. McNeill said
testing for the Lagoon is done
from water samples taken from
the water beside the bridge on the
road entering Indian Peninsula,
"Where the water comes right out.
of the woods. It would naturally
be in worse shape than the water
out in the Lagoon, itself, where
the oysters are", McNeill said.
McNeill warned that the
closing order applies to those
persons who would pick up a
bucket full for their own personal
use as well as the commercial
producer. "Their order applies to
everyone", he said.
McNeill said the order didn't
affect him too much for the week
the Lagoon has been closed.
"When the water started rising;
we started stockpiling and we
have an ample supply for right
now. The harvester is not working
though, and that makes it hard on
him, especially right here at
Christmas," McNeill said.
Most of Apalachicola Bay
was opened again to harvesting
Wednesday.


The dredging job is expect-
ed to take nearly a year to
complete and will cost ap-
proximately $850,000.

Par Fred Allen Is In


Critical Condition

from Accidental Gunshot Wound


Port St. Joe's community services
director, Fred Allen, was seriously wounded
by a shot from a .38 pistol Sunday night. The
accident, which occurred at about 9:15, is
still under investigation, but, according to
Sheriff Ken Murphy, the gunshot was
accidental and indications from Allen, who
was conscious after the shooting, are that
Allen fell while cleaning his boat and the gun
went off in the fall.
Allen had spent the afternoon in his
capacity as Captain of the Sheriff's
Auxilliary, checking camps on the river for
vandalism. He had used his own boat in the
operation and had returned to the Sheriff's
office and parked his boat on the parking
ramp beside the office complex.
One of Murphy's deputies heard Allen
outside and went out, to' speak to him and
found him in the process of cleaning out his
boat. The deputy went back inside and a
while later, Port St. Joe patrolmen Howard
Rogers and James Graves came to the
Sheriff's office on business, and found Allen'
-lying on the concrete parking apron beside
the boat. The 38 pistol, which belonged to
Allen, was lying on the ground nearby.
Graves ran inside the Sheriff's office,

because his first thought was, "JailbreakI",
while Rogers looked after Allen.
Ambulance crews were called and Allen
was taken to Gulf Pines where Dr. Jorge San
Pedro stabilized him and put in a breathing
aid. Allen was then transferred to a Panama
City hospital where he was still in critical
condition Tuesday. Murphy said hospital:
authorities planned to keep Allen on the
critical list for 48 hours.
Sheriff Murphy indicated that evidence
points to Allen 'getting out of the boat,
reaching back inside to retrieve the gun and,
possibly slipping, causing the gun to strike
some object and go off. Murphy said they
will not know precisely what happened until
they can question Allen, since he was alone
at the time of the accident.:
The bullet entered the left side of Allen's:
neck and came out above the right ear.:
Murphy said doctors have found no damage
other than to facial muscles, but are still,
cautious about his condition. Surgery was
performed on Allen at 5:00 Monday, when he:
started bleeding.
Murphy said, "He has lost an awful lot
of blood". Doctors have been able to stop the:
bleeding, but he is still bothered by excess.
blood in his lungs from the wound.

DRUG &
ALCOHOL ABUSE
A recent poster commis-
sioned by the Auxiliary to
the American Optometric
Association describes what
drug and alcohol abuse can
do to your eyes. Everyone
should know about it.
Excessive drug use and al-
cohol intake can cause ....
blurred vision
watery eyes
double vision
bloodshot eyes
eye tremors
swollen lids
visual hallucinations
*increased sensitivity to
light
hemorrhaging behind the
eyes, and
* possible loss of vision
When you go for an eye ex-
amination, it is important to
tell your optometrist if you
are taking drugs. He/she
will ask you this question in
the case history part of the
examination. With this
knowledge, the doctor can
better evaluate the cause of
any of the symptoms above.
If those symptoms are caus-
ed by excessive drug use or
excessive drinking, your op-
tometrist will certainly
reiterate the warning:
STOP! If any of the symp-
toms are caused by other eye
problems, in most cases they
can be relieved.

TIE STAR. Port St..Joe. Fla. TH'RSI)DA, DEC. 22, 1983


'Mrs. Lola Costin, Gulf County's Good Samaritan


By Margaret Key Biggs
When I first came to Port
St. Joe to teach three decades
ago, one of the first people I
heard about was a Good
Samaritan everyone called,
"Miss Lola." Her reputation
preceded her, yet when I met
her, I was delighted to find
she was even more wonderful
than her tributes.
She is not a "Miss Goody
Two-Shoes" nor a "Polly-
anna" type, but she is a
down-to-earth woman whose
love for people leads her to
see their needs and to help in
any way she can.
Helping people has in-
cluded sitting up all night
with ill patients (even when
she had three babies in
diapers and on bottles at the
same time), providing food,
clothing, and-or shelter, pay-
ing medical bills, assisting
with funeral expenses, get-
ting food together for griev-
ing families, and being a true
friend who was there when
she was needed.
For example, one day Miss
Lola asked Mr. Cecil to drive


her to a particular house in
the area. No one had told
Miss Lola of a family's need,
but like a homing pigeon that
always finds its destination,
Miss Lola has a sixth sense
about people's needs.
When they drove up, they
found a woman in tears who
explained that there was
nothing in their house to eat.
Miss Lola examined the
kitchen herself and said,
"There was not even flour
and grease to make gravy."
She and Mr. Cecil left for a
while, and returned later
with boxes of food.
Among Gulf Countians who
are aware of the benevolent
deeds of the Costin family is
the saying that "Mr. Cecil
brings it in the front door,
and Miss Lola takes it out the
back."
But it is Mr. Cecil who puts
brightness in Miss Lola's life.
When I asked Miss Lola what
her fondest memory is, she
said "When I married Cecil
sixty-one years ago, and
when my first child was
born."


MRS. LOLA
She was born Lola Lee
Pridgeon in Wewahitchka
when it was part of Calhoun
County. Her mother ran a
hotel whose backyard was a
grove of orange trees. There
she grew up with her ten
other brothers and sisters.
Wewahitchka State Bank is
now on that site.
As a young woman in
Wewa, Miss Lola had several
beaus before she married
Cecil in 1922. She said that
there wasn't too much to do
back then, but two things
young people enjoyed were

these two who have given so
much to others have never
,given each other a' gift for
any occasion- perhaps be-
cause they have given each
other the ultimate gift that
has been sustained for over
six decades.
For over six decades Miss
Lola has been a member of
the First Baptist Church
where she served as the
S,,Nursery Director for thirty-
G gtwo years, and has served on
the Benevolent Committee.
Miss Lola was awarded a
life membership pin in the
P.T.A., and has served as
W.M.U. President, but, for
the most part, she has
shunned clubs and organiza-
Stions and leadership posi-
s tions. She prefers to find the
needs of people and then to
Sfall them.
It does not take long for the
p'news of a Good Samaritan to
-'get around. Miss Lola has
'received a plethora of tele-
phone calls with voices ask-
ing, "Are you the welfare
lady?"
She always answers, "I'm

great-grandchildren. And of Miss Lola, "I could use


every good adjective to de-
scribe her. I wish I had more
church members who are as
faithful and dedicated to the
Lord. Her benevolent nature
is a Christ-like nature. She's
the kind of person churches
can be built on because she's
not looking for any personal
honor and glory."
But she herself summed up
her life best when she said, "I
don't know of anybody I don't
love. I don't like the ways of
some, but I love them," and
"It's more blessed to give
than receive."
Chronic health problems
have slowed down Miss
Lola's activities a bit. She
said, "I reckon I need to be in
a nursing home, but it
frustrates me that now, since
we've got the nursing home, I
can't get over there to visit
with those people."
How fortunate are we who
live in Gulf County to know
such a good Samaritan.

Let's Be Careful Out There with


Fires Wood Stoves or Fireplaces


What was once found main-
ly in mountain cabins is
becoming more and more a
part of carpeted living rooms
in homes in many regions of
the country. What is it? A
woodburning stove.
Wherever it's used, it can
be dangerous if it's not
properly installed and op-
erated says the Insurance
Information Institute. In
fact, the Institute points out,
a majority of the fires
connected with wood stoves
can be attributed to careless
use.
To help reduce the tragic
consequences of wood stove
fires, the Institute offers a
free leaflet, "Wood Stove
Safety," which may be ob-
tained by calling its hotline:
800-221-4954.
The Institute's leaflet
says:
.DO make sure there is
ample clearance between the
stove and all combustible
floors, walls, and ceilings.
DO place the stove on a
fireproof base. DO be sure
your stove is made of sturdy,
suitable material, such as
cast iron or steel. Look for
stoves listed ,by Under-
writers' Laboratories (UL)
or other recognized testing
laboratories.
! DO remember, if you pur-
chase a used stove, to check

Tips On Proper Planting for Shrubs


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
A beautiful home land-
scape can represent a major
investment, a sizeable por-
tion of which is often account-
ed for by. trees and shrubs.
It's important to plan care-
fully, buy from reputable
nurseries, and take care of
your new plants properly as
soon as you get them home.


Most of us add trees and
shrubs to our home grounds
now and then. As we contem-
plate such a project, we face
a common question: When is
the best time to plant?
Generally speaking, the
answer is: During late fall
and winter months. So if
you're thinking about setting
some new trees or shrubs in
your landscape, now is prob-
ably the time to do it.

The next thing we need to
talk about is preparing the
planting site. You should get
the selected site ready well in
advance of buying a plant, so
that you'll be able to get it in
the ground as soon as you
take it home. This is very
important. If you wait even a
few days between purchase
and planting, a plant that
was healthy when you bought
it may be in poor shape by
the time you set it in your
landscape. If you give a little
extra time and effort to site
preparation, you'll get your
new plant off to a much
better start. The job you do in
preparing the planting area
will have to lot to do with how
your plant will look for many
years to come- perhaps its
very survival.
Obviously, the first step is
digging the hole. Be sure you
dig it large enough. The hole
should be at least six inches
deeper and wider on all sides
than the root mass of the
plant. Keep the sides going

straight down, rather than
sloped. Loosen the soil in the
bottom, to allow for root
development.
Your next step will be to
add some soil amendments to
the earth you've removed
from the hole- soil that will
be used to fill in around the
roots when you set your
plant. I will discuss this in
my article next week.

The American Cancer So-

Florida National Bank has
announced a challenge to all
major Florida corporations
to join forces and raise $3
million over the next three
years to fund cancer re-
search.
To initiate the "$3 Million
Florida National Cancer
Challenge," Florida National
Chairman Jack Uible pled-
ged $300,000 over the next
three years.
"Over 1,200 people a day in
the United States are dying of
cancer. This disease touches
the lives of almost everyone
in some way and the cor-
porate community has a
responsibility to actively par-
ticipate in the fight against
cancer," stated Uible. "We
pledge $300,000 over the next
three years and challenge
other concerned corporations
to contribute on the level they
believe is appropriate for
their organization."
Uible will personally ex-
tend the challenge to other
corporate leaders in Florida
during the next few months.
A challenge team composed
of Uible and American Can-
cer Society research and
volunteer personnel will can-
vas the state's major cor-


portions to appeal for com-
mitments of $100,000 a year
for three years. Some cor-
porations will give less and
contributions from smaller
companies will supplement
the "challenge."
Dr. Frank Rauscher, Se-
nior Vice President of Re-
search, American Cancer
Society, accepted the Florida
National check. "The Florida
National Cancer Challenge
will be felt nationally. Cor-
porate involvement of this
type is rare and it comes at a
crucial time," said Rauc-
scher.
"We have just made a
quantum leap in research
and as we talk today a major
breakthrough could be taking


place in a research lab," he
said. "We are so close and
with the help of corporations
we may be able to knock two
to three years off the time
table."
Fourteen types of cancer
currently curable, said Raus-
cher, and we are successfully
curing 50 percent of those
who contract cancer.
Carter Bryan, Florida
Division Crusade Chairman,
called the corporate chal-
lenge another first for Flori-
da. "We lead the nation in
dollars raised in special
events and raised 20.6 per-
cent more in this year's
crusade than in the previous
year. We believe the Florida
National Cancer Challenge
will set the pace for a


national corporate cancer
contributions. The state of
Florida will issue a national
challenge to other state divi-
sions of the American Cancer
Society, which could multiply
the effect of the Florida
National Cancer Challenge
many times."
Bryan, who is serving his
second year as crusade
chairman, has a $10 million
goal for 1984, including speci-
al events, residential giving
and corporate giving.
"The charter of the Ameri-
can Cancer Society states
that we will disband the day a
cure is found," explained
Bryan. "With the help of
Florida National and other
state corporations, that day
could be soon."


Granada Operation Is


Planned On 7-11 Lot


"Operation 7-11" is an
appropriate code name for
the Granada operation. Ac-
cording to Col. Dave Niles,
stationed at Hurlbut Field,
near Pensacola, where the
operation was originated,
who spoke to the Rotary club
last Thursday, that's where


the rescue mission was plan-
ned.
Col. Niles was flying one of
the lead planes ferrying,
paratroopers and material to
Granada to go in on the first
wave of troops to hit the
island.
The Colonel said his group
received its. first indication
that they might be activated
and sent on a mission on
Wednesday before the opera-
tion was activated on the
following Tuesday. On Fri-
day, his squadron was told to
be prepared to go. On Satur-
day, they were told to stay
close to the telephone. On
Sunday, Col. Niles said he
received a call from his

commanding officer telling
him they had to get together
to talk. "I met him at a 7-11
convenience store near the
base and we sat there in the
car, in the parking lot, and
planned the Granada opera-,
tion", he said.
Monday, the call came
down that the squadron was
definitely going and they took
off for the staging area.
Tuesday morning, at about
4:00 a.m., the planes were
over Granada with their
troops, material and supplies
with plans to touch down,
unload and take off again.
A Navy reconnisance boat
which was to give the planes
some intelligence on landing
conditions, couldn't get close
to shore because of stormy
seaS. The boat wound up
about 30 miles off-shore.
"We decided to go with
plan 'B' and air drop our
troops and supplies", Niles
said.
The first plane peeled off
from its drop run because it
met heavy anti-aircraft fire
and did not drop its load.
SA er plane mov d' into
position and it and number
two plane dropped its load
,which consisted of 40 troops.
"They were ,cooks, bakers,
etc., but they were trained to
defend themselves", Col.
Niles said.
A gunship was called in to
hit the anti-aircraft im-
placements, ,while, in the
meantime, the 40 soldiers
were on the airport runway
all by themselves. After the
gunship got through, the
planes began to come in and
drop their loads, flying under
the flak still coming up from
batteries which had not been
knocked out.
The speaker said the oper-
ation went very smoothly
from that time. He described
the military today as young,
with fast reactions and well
trained. "Trained men are
staying in the service longer'
than they used to. Our
retention of enlistees is grow-
ing, giving us a more exper-
ienced group of men".
Although Col. Niles and his
men didn't know for sure
they were going to Granada
until Sunday before they
landed there on Tuesday, the
Cubans knew they were
coming.
Col. Niles said, "Up uptil
we got to the staging area,

a great success. If I may so
so myself, I believe that this
program, which is usually
held in the fall of the year at
PSJ High, is a great asset in
helping students to deter-
mine a great deal about their
futures.
The '84 Cruise Club will be
taking orders for donuts to be
picked up and delivered
December 19 FRESH, so if'
you encounter an "innocent
face trying to earn some
honest money for a cruise,"
why not help out (and enjoy
what you get in return.)

To many, many unmen-
tionable persons' relief and
joy, PSJ High will be "releas-
ing" its students next Wed-
nesday aind Thursday at
12:30. The bad part of the
deal is that semester exams
will be given those days, but
the' good part is that we'll be
out for two weeks after
Thursday!!!
Attention: The Band

duled to be held December 16

Gulf County School Lunch


MENUS


Christmas Lagniappe

Special arrangements have been made by the folks at
JIndian Pass to have available for your holiday enjoyment
fresh shucked INDIAN LAGOON OYSTERS. Beginning
December 1st, orders will be accepted for these
epicurean delicacies for later pick-up. A minimum of
three days notice must be given to assure your order be-
^ ing filled. These will not be the machine ground, stabbed,
oysters with all the flavor washed out that are unfor-
tunately found in most grocery stores. These delicate
morsels will be individually handled and lovingly remov-
ed surgically from their shells by thin steel blades and
gently packed in their own juices. The Choctaw and
Creek Indians paddled hundreds of miles to eat what they
(and we) believed to be this aphrodisial "Food of the
Gods". During this period you can acquire them for

$4.95 a pint
OR ONLY

$30.00 per gallon

For you do-it-yourself he men we continue
to offer those
excellent quality bushels of In-
dian Pass oysters in the shell.
The oysters you eat today slept ., --
last night in the soft beds of In-
dian Lagoon.
Call 227-1670
to reserve your holiday treat.
