Shepherds in the fields saw a brilliant star, and knew that night
was born the Christ for whom they'd waited. The wise men also
saw and followed the starlit path that led to Bethlehem and to the
Christ Child.

"And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his
mother, and fell down, and worshipped him;
and when they had opened their treasures, they

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 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 fo 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 yow 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 were gone away from

them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us

now go even unto Bethlehem,,and, see.thihisng hiich iscomee

to pass, which the Lord hath made known to us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, 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 them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these, things, and pondered them in her

heart. And the shepherds returned, glorying and praising God

for all the things that they had heard and seen; as it was told

unto them.

We're Starting A New Christmas Tree Trend In Our Neighborhood


LIKE THOUSANDS OF other
families across the land, we put up our
Christmas tree last week and made
ready to celebrate the coming of the
Fat Man in real pagan style.
I picked up our tree about two
weeks ago and.set it up in the old
trusty tree stand a little over a week
ago and set it out in the rain.to pick up
a little moisture and prolong the. day
of its dying on me.
Last week, we undertook the job
of putting it up in the house and
getting the decorations put on and the
lights lit. "Litting" the lights was an
adventure in itself, but I'll save that
story until next year.
Did you ever use scotch tape, in
an emergency, to repair a set of
Christmas tree lights? Sounds dan-
gerous, doesn't it.
It is.
Anyhow, we got the tree up all in
one piece with a minimum of needle
fall-out, and it works!

I don't mind the job, you
understand. It's just that things
happen which one doesn't ordinarily
associate with putting up a Christmas
tree when I put up a Christmas tree.
There are ways to avoid these
happenings, however. I set the tree up
in the stand, as I said.
I came inside the house and
cleared the normal spot for putting up
the CPhristmas tree in front of two of

evening, there stood the tree, all

Most of you have your tree in the
front of the house, where all the
passers-by can see it. Right? Most
people have their decorations toward
the front of the house where others
can oooh and aaah at their ingenuity
at decorating for Christmas.
Not so at our house. You can't see
our tree from the front of the house.


Onewould swear we had no Christmas
tree up. As a matter of fact, I was
outside the other night ,when a car
passed by and I heard a child remark,
"Momma, why don't those people
have a christmas tree?"
I asked Frenchie why the Christ-
mas tree was in the back door.
"It's out of the way there and
easier to get to and there's more room
to place gifts around it, there".
Women have no logic in arguing
things like this.
It didn't matter that the hutch had
to be moved to get the tree in; the
dining room table had to placed on the
other side of the room and all the
chairs moved.
It was less trouble to place the
tree there.
I started to wonder if Frenchie

anymore.
I new she wasn't getting old,
because she is the same age I am.

walks with the advent of Standard
Time. So, when I walk at night, I see
the bright Christmas trees which have
been put up in the neighborhood, and I
found there are others who have
placed their trees in the back of the
house.
A new trend is being born right
there in and around Allen Memorial
Way. It may even take the place of
long hair for men and rock music.
A casual stroll around our neigh-
borhood, shows Tom Ford has his
Christmas tree in the back of the
house.
Walk a little farther and you'll see
Margaret Smith has hers in the back
of the house .. and Ralph Roberson
and my backyard neighbor, John
Miller.
I suspect Robert Nedley has his in
the back of the house, too, but its
lights were turned off about the time I
noticed it the other night and I'm not
real sure that was Robert's house or
Bill Whaley's.
The moral of this story is that if
you want to see Christmas tree beauty
in our neighborhood, you'll have to
drive up the alley.

Captain Gerald Huval of
the "Manchac" says the boat

of material per day in its
operation. The boat carries a
crew of 30 to 35 men. The
digging operation is powered
by a 16 cylinder engine which
develops 2,850 horsepower.

Maddox said interests
would like to extend the catch t
basin about 300 feet to the
southeast in an attempt to
catch more of the sand
washing into the area, where
the encroaching Peninsula
point is filling in the channel
at other points. Maddox said
extending the catch basin

tional work on the project.
Suggestions have also been
made in the past to move the
channel farther away from
the Peninsula to escape the

constant filling in caused by
the eroding shoreline of the
Peninsula. "This would take
care of our maintenance
problem for a .long time",
Maddox said.
The Bar Pilot said the
channel was originally not as
deep as it presently is.
Through the years, as the
need.for a deeper channel
cmre up; the present chanriel
was just dug deeper, rather
than moving it to deeper
water and following natural
bottom where it could. Right
near the channel is bottom
which is already as deep or
nearly as deep as the author-
ized 37 feet of the Port St. Joe
channel. "Originally, very
little dredging was done on
our harbor because ve only
had an authorized depth of 28
feet and natural bottom was
used virtually all the way


into the docks here at Port St.
Joe", Maddox said.
At any rate, when the
present project is completed,'
Port St. Joe will once again
have an authorized 37 feet
depth in its harbor entrance
from its beginning out in the
Gulf of Mexico to the docks
here near St. Joe Paper
Company. Dredging for this
project and for the one five
years ago, is all confined'to
the small area near St.
Joseph Point. The feeling is
that the dredge will need
to come, back to the same
position in just a short wlile.

FRANK HANNON, Agent:


It has only been five years
since the entrance, to the
channel in St. Joseph Bay
was dredged to an authorized
depth of 37 feet, but the
Corps of Engineers have
been back on the job for the
past two weeks, dredging
again at the point where the
channel comes within just a
few yards of the tip of St.
Joseph Point.
This time around, the
Corps, along with the coop-
eration of the Department of.
Natural Resources, are using
the spoil from the dredging
operation tVo re-nouirish' the
eroding beach on the west
side of the Peninsula, which.
faces the Gulf of Mexico.
According to Dave Mad-
dox, local Bar Pilot, 'the sand
which keeps filling' in the
entrance to the bay channel
is eroding from the western
shore of the Peninsula and
continuously extending the
point of the Peninsula and
filling in the channel en-
trance at this point. Maddox
also says that with the
extending point of the penin-
sula, the point is shifting
toward the south, or the
"Shark Hole" area, in an
area where the Corps has ho
jurisdiction to dredge, caus-
ing another problem with the
channel.
Five years ago, the Corps
dredged out the channel
where it skirts the Peninsula
and.in the process, dug a 300
foot wide catch basin be-
tween the channel and the
Peninsula. "The purpose of
this catch basin was to catch
the sand washing into the
area before it got to the
channel", according to Mad-
.dox.
Now, the catch basin is full
and the sand has filled in the
channel, also, making the
current dredging operation
necessary. Maddox says his
experience with the channel
and the charts being used by
the Corps of Engineers, show
that at one point, where the

Eye Openers
by Dr. Wesley Grace

MONITORING YOUR
EXTENDED WEAR
LENSES '
Extended wear contact
lenses tend to develop pro-
perty changes and may
become contaminated with
age. It's important to exer-
cise this daily safety check
at home:
1. Blink your eyes about 8 or
9 times, and see if your
lenses and your eyes feel
comfortable.
2. Look into a mirror and see
that your eyes look good -
they should not be red and
they should be free of
mucus.
3. Gaze at a distant calendar
or picture, covering each
eye alternately, to be sure
that the vision in each eye
is clear.
If you pass all three steps
of this self-test procedure,
continue wearing your con-
tact lenses on the extended
wear schedule prescribed by
your optometrist.
If, however, you fail any
part of the self-test, remove
your lenses immediately;
then clean, disinfect and re-
insert them. Administer the
test again. If you still don't
pass, remove the lenses and
call your eye doctor for a re-
examination.

Social Security Begins


Second Half Century


The year 1985 was a time for.
reflecting on the past as Social
Security celebrated its 50th anniver-
sary. With the second half century
underway, let's review how the
program has served several, genera-
tions and will continue to do so.
Looking back, we find that some 115
million people have received about
$1.8 trillion in monthly benefits since
the first'payments were made in 1940.
Social Security has provided an-
important financial base upon which
to build with other protection such as
savings, pensions, and so on.
About 125 million working people
now pay Social Security taxes which
are used to pay current benefits. In
1986, employees and their employers
will pay an extra dime for each $100 in
wages, up to the maximum amount
taxable, and self-employed individu-
als will pay an extra 20 cents per $100
of self-employment income.
The scheduled tax increase was
part of 1983 legislation that restored
financial soundness to Social Security,
As a result of this and other changes,
present and future beneficiaries can
count on getting all benefits when due.
Many people don't realize that
Social Security is much more than a
retirement program. Over 37 million'
people of all ages receive benefits.
They include retirees 62 or older,
disabled people under 65 who have
been unable to work for at least a
year, unmarried children who are
under 18 or disabled, wives and
husbands, widows and widowers, and
surviving dependent parents. Also,
most older people and many long-
term disabled beneficiaries have
Medicare to help pay medical bills.
A recent survey indicates that,
people of all ages continue to strongly
support Social Security. Well over 9
percent of Aiiericans 25 and over fee
it is an important and successful
program. Nearly as many oppose
phasing it out and agree that its
elimination would mean many more.
older people Would have to depend on
families or welfare for support.


In addition, nearly two-thirds of
those surveyed believe the Social
Security taxes they pay are about
right. Only 23 percent say they are too
high.
Like other programs, Social Secur-
ity is not perfect. However, it has
served the American public well for
decades'and will continue to do so for
the next 50 years and beyond.


May the joys and peace of
His birth be with you today
and always. Bless you all.

Deadline


for Filing

Federal-state officials recently
urged Small Business Administration
I SBA) loan applicants to fill out their
forms and return them quickly.
Paul Hall. federal coordinating
officer, said. "We gave out 106 home
and personal SBA loan and 307 SBA
business loan applications.
"To date. 15 home and personal
loan and five business loan applica-
tions have been returned." he said.
Applicant failure to resolve their
SBA loan status is one of the main
causes of delays in providing disaster
victims with other program assist-
ance.
Another problem is failure to
include supporting documents. Most
commonly missing are a copy of the
real estate deed (do not send an
original) and tax statements to prove
loan repayment capacity.
Applications deadline is Feb. 3,
1986.

A Beautifully Decorated Christmas Tree


Can Trigge
A beautifully decorated Christmas
tree, a child's toy or colorful holiday
lighting can be the source of tragedy if
fire safety tips are ignored during the
holiday season, State Fire Marshal
Bill Gunter said recently urging
Floridians to be cautious while
celebrating the holiday season.
"I hope citizens everywhere will
take special care to observe the basic
fire safety precautions," said Gunter.
"While the Christmas season is a
special time for all of us, it is marred
for a few people every year by holiday
fires."
Gunter noted that last year holiday
fires in Florida caused more than
$34,000 in damage, although no lives
were lost. 1985 losses are already
higher.
Last week, an 8 year old Fort
Lauderdale girl died of smoke inhala-
tion, the first victim of a holiday fire.
A string of lights on the family's
artificial Christmas tree started a
blaze which considerably damaged
the one-story frame house. All other
family members survived.
Gunter released the following list of
recommended fire safety precautions.
Select a firm fresh tree, if you are
buying a live tree. Don't buy a tree
with shedding needles. Cut one inch


r Tragedy
off the trunk, on an angle, to help the
tree absorb water. Place the tree in a
sturdy stand and keep it filled with
water above the cut line.
The drier a tree becomes, the more
of a fire hazard it is. To reduce the
hazard, keep the tree indoors only as
long as absolutely necessary,
Use only lights labeled by a safety
testing agency such as Underwriters'
Laboratory (UL) or Canadian Stan-
dards Association (CSA).
Don't hand lights on a metallic tree.
Plastic trees should have a fire
retardant label.
Never put more than three sets of
lights on any extension cord. Doh't
overload outlets. Replace worn sets
which cannot be completely repaired.
Outside, use special outdoor light-
ing.
Unplug the lighting before you go to
bed or leave the house.
Don't smoke near the tree or
decorations.
Don't buy combustible toys or ones
that use flammable liquids. Plug-in
electric toys should be labeled for fire
safety by UL or CSA.
Practicing these simple, preventa-
tive measures will help ensure a safe
holiday season!


Demos Take Credit


for Low Taxes In Fla.


Democratic Party Chairman Char-
les Whitehead recently commended
the Florida Republican Party for
improving recent campaign tactics.
This was in response to a recent direct
mail letter released by the Florida
Republican Party wherein it was
stated that the Florida GOP was
committed to keeping Florida taxes
low.
Chairman Whitehead noted that
"although the Republican letter con-
tained much of their standard rhetor-
ic, it was a clear departure from
previous direct mail releases." White-

Anthony Ends

Tactical Course


Pvt. James B. Anthony, brother of
Evette Watson of 211 Broad St., Port
St. Joe, has completed the tactical fire
Operations cq"rse at Fort Sill, QMa.
During the course, students were
taught to set up and operate tactical
fire direction equipment and-to
perform troubleshooting procedures
and maintenance.
He is a 1985 graduate of Port St. Joe
High School.

head added that he was "pleased to
see that the Republicans were ac-
knowledging that Florida retains one
of the lowest tax structures in the
country".
Chairman Whitehead cited a study
verifying what the Republicans have
conceded, butt wiaftFlorida citizens
have known all along Florida
Democratic leadership has kept Flor-
ida taxes at one of the lowest levels in
the nation. The Tax Foundation, a
nationally recognized watch-dog of
state taxes, has consistently rated
Florida as having one of the lowest tax
structures in the nation. One such
report, issued in February of this
year, ranked Florida as one of six
states with the lowest state-local tax
burden in the nation. According to
another study issued by the group,
Florida's corporate and personal
taxes are second-lowest in the nation
when figured as a portion of income.
Whitehead noted that "this is one
instance where" being 49th in the
nation is a true accomplishment for
Florida taxpayers."

ing this treasured event in
their home Saturday, De-
cember 28, 1985.







Because they look like deer,
and because of their name,
many people think that
reindeer belong to the deer
species. But they really be-
long to the caribou family.

COUNTY SEAL 4t 12/5

FINAL NOTICE
Notification is hereby given to the
public' of the intent of the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA)to provide assistance to local
governments and state agencies in the
counties of Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf,
Leon, Liberty and Wakulla to restore
facilities located in the base floodplain
which were damaged in the recent ma-
jor disaster declared as a result of
Hurricane Kate. Public comment
about restoration of these facilities
'and application of the floodplain
management executive order to them
was invited by notice on December 19,
1985.
These facilities include, but are not
limited to the following:
1. Non-emergency debris clearance.
2 .Non-emergency repair to protective
flood control and protective coastal
facilities.
3. Damage to streets, roads and
related facilities.
4. Damage to water control facilities.
5. Damage to public buildings and
related equipment.
6. Damage to public utilities.
7. Damage to certain private non-
profit facilities (hospitals, educa-
tional centers, emergency, utility,
and custodial care facilities)
Comments and information received
were fully.evaluated by FEMA along
with evaluation of social, economic,
environmental, and safety considera-
tions. FEMA also consulted withState
and local officials to insure com-
pliance with appllcablelfloodplain pro-
tection standards. FEMA has deter-
mined that the only practicable alter-
native is to restore certain facilities at
their original location within the base
Sfloodplain because one of the following
situations applies in each case:
1. The facility is functionally depen-
dent on its floodplain location.
2. The project facilitates an open
space use.
3. The facilities are an integral part of
a larger network which would be
uneconomical to relocate.
Additionally, the possible effects of
not restoring the facility were examin-
ed. In each case, there was an over-
riding public need for the facility
which clearly outweighed the order's
requirements to avoid the floodplain
when there is a practicable alter-
natire, and which made non-floodplain
sites not practicable. The restoration
of these facilities will also incorporate
certain measures designed to mitigate
the effects of future flooding.
Interested persons may obtain infor-
mation about these actions and their
locations at the Office of the Federal
Coordinator at 5060 West Tennessee,
Tallahassee, Florida 32304 or by call-

Rev. Sid Ellis wove a tale
of God having a plan for
everything into the tradition-
al Christmas story last
Thursday at noon, as he
addressed the Rotary Club.
Ellis said "God has a plan
for everything. When he sent
his Son to Earth to atone for
the sins of mankind, it was
time in his plan to do it."
Ellis said it is futile for
mankind to try to figure out
God's scheme for things just
as it is useless to try and
describe the vastness of

God's creation. It's beyond
man's abilities", he said.
"Even tragedy is part of
God's plan", Ellis said.
"Tragedy is also a part of
God's design. Tragedy tea-
ches us to cope. It teaches its
victims to deal with difficulty
and to accept God's design
for things."
Ellis summed up his des-
cription of God's plan by
saying, "We're not just here

118 Fifth St. Highland View


A total of 796 families
registered for various forms
of assistance in the three
Florida counties declared a
major disaster area follow-
ing Hurricane Kate, accord-
ing to federal and state
disaster recovery coordinat-
ing officers.
+++
Applications here in Gulf
County had numbered 225
last week and were expected
to climb to nearly 300 before
the offices were closed here
Friday.

Four disaster application
centers were operated in
Wakulla. Gulf and Franklin


counties during a three-week
period that began on Mon-
day December 9 and ended
here in Gulf County on
Friday, December 20.
According to Paul Hall, the
federal coordinating officer,
the Disaster Application Cen-
ters were established to
provide one-stop locations in
affected communities where
residents could register for
assistance.
"Based on our estimates of
damage, we are confident
most families affected by
Hurricane Kate in these
counties have registered for
assistance," Hall said. "The
centers provided all assist-


ance programs at one loca-
tion convenient to the disas-
ter victims. But their clos-
ings should not be mistaken
as an end to the disaster
assistance programs."
++ +
Residents may continue to
make application for Small
Business Administration dis-
aster loans, Individual and
Family Grants, temporary
housing and other federal
and state assistance pro-
grams in each of the affected
counties until February 3,
1986; except for the DUA
program which has an appli-
cation deadline of January 2,
1986.
