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 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 were gone away from

them intdoheai, "ti W&pherds said one todnothe,-iILet 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 Joseph,

and the babe lying ;n 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.

Hunker Down with Kes


It Took A Lickin'

and Kept Right On Tickin'


by Kesley Colbert-


I wish I could remember
the exact year, but I can't. I
know it was about 1957 or '58
- I was about 10 or 11 at the
time and it was getting close
to Christmas and they had
this Timex watch at Can-
non's Drug Store. My love


affair for clocks and watches
began with that Timex. It
wasn't an ordinary watch, no
siree it had a red sweep
second hand, it was water
proof, and shock resistant.
Best of all it glowed in the
dark. Of course I couldn't

really tell from looking at it
in the store window if it, in
fact, did glow in the dark but
they had a little sign right
under it saying it would and I
had a lot of faith in Mr.
Cannon and John Cameron
Sweazy.


Well, I tell you, life wasn't
easy for a boy named Kesley
- that watch cost $12.95. I
mean if it had been $7.95 I
might of had a chance. After
about two weeks and about
my seventh or eighth trip to
that window I finally got up

I Don't Think I'm Going


I DON'T THINK I'm going to
make it!
Here it is Monday morning before
Christmas and we here at The Star
are struggling to get the paper out and
take off for a few days of holiday
cheer and I have "Christmas party
fatigue" in the worst way. And, I still
have three more days of Christmas
feasting and Christmas parties to go
before the big day. The course is
getting rough, now. For the past week,
4I have had a few days in between
parties to recuperate from the last one
before I have the privilege of
attending another one, which lets me
get a second wind. If I was drinking
partyer, I think I would already be
under the table and some of you would
have to take over from here on out.
I think I have already shot that 10
pounds I lost just prior to Thanksgiv-
ing. It went out the window about the
second day of the fruit cake circuit.
THE GARBAGE COLLECTION
people have remarked on more than
one occasion that our church has more
eatin' meeting's than almost any other
church in town. Of course, they make


that judgment by the garbage they
pick up behind the church.
I'll acceed to the indictment, but
the eating doesn't stop at the church.
The members do a fair amount of it at

home and every time a group of them
gathers in a home, such as here at
Christmas time, the tables groan.
That's my downfall here at
Christmas. I get my share of
invitations to parties at the homes of
our church members and it's a hard
responsibility to carry out. In order to
get all the parties in, they start giving
dinners, little gatherings and pig outs
two weeks before Christmas.
Add to that Jim McNeill's opening


Through All the Christmas Goodies


I asked if they had a "sampler"
platter-a little taste of everything on
it. Since they were featuring steamed
clams, shrimp, oysters and snow crab
legs, I thought an assortment would

Pass for the opening and the samp-
ling. I was sitting at a table, waiting to
give my order, when the waitress,
looking like she had been through a
hurricane, came up and said, "We're
in such a mad house here. Have you
given your order yet?" She pulled out
a steamed snow crab leg to write
down the order and actually had half
of it written down before she realized
her mistake and borrowed my ball
point pen.


be nice.
The waitress said they didn't have
an assorted tray on their menu.
Then, I suggested she just fix me
an order with a sampling of every-
thing in it.
"Would you like one of every-
thing"? she asked.
I pondered that suggestion and
figured I would want more than one
oyster, one shrimp, one clam ... etc.


So, I said, "I'll tell you, just bring me
three of everything on the menu",
thinking I would get three oysters,
three shrimp, and so forth.
It doesn't work that way. Don't
ever go into McNeill's Raw Bar and
order three of everything. It's dan-
gerous.
When my order came along, that
"three of everything" had resulted in
three dozen raw oysters, three dozen
steamed oysters, three half pound
containers of shrimp, three dozen
steamed snow crab legs and three
dozen steamed clams.
It takes a real heavyweight to get
around something like that and I'll tell
you right now; I had to have some
help with that one.

AFTER A WEEK END spent at
the Raw Bar, a party at my house for
my "Mature" men's Sunday School
class and their wives; a reception at
my preacher's house on Sunday
afternoon; a choir party after the
Christmas music program Sunday
night; another party scheduled for
Monday night; two planned for


Tuesday and our annual family
get-together on Wednesday night, I
just might be a basket case by
Christmas day.
All of this comes on top of at least
three Christmas parties and dinners
earlier last week and one or two the
week before. This thing has been
going on for a time.
I have come to the conclusion that
one of the reasons God fixed it so the
young (and inexperienced) people
would have children is they are the
only ones with the stamina to go
through the Christmas party and
dinner gauntlet and still be able to
cope with a kid raiding the Christmas
tree at four o'clock in the morning on
Christmas day. It's no easy task.
In spite of the hectic swirl of
activity which has left me breathless
and give out, I am eagerly looking
forward to two things. These two
things are a delicious pot of blackeye
peas and hog jowl, along with a piece
of crackling bread on New Year's Day
. and next Christmas!
You all have a Merry Christmas,
you hear?

enough courage to go inside
and ask Mr. Cannon about
the watch. He said you could
go swimming down at the
clay pits in that watch and
yes, it did glow in the dark
and it was the best watch in
his store and it cost $12.95. He
didn't let me hold it.
No use to go home and tell
Mom and- Dad about the
watch. We had lots of candy,
and apples and Mom always
did, and still does make the
best fruitcake at Christmas
time and we had lots of
pecans and stuff like that -
but we didn't have many
store bought gifts. We'd
usually get one present each
and I can guarantee you they
didn't cost $12.95. So I didn't
say anything about the
watch. I figured I'd have to
be content with a Roy Rogers
gun and holster set or a pair
of genuine Red Ryder gloves
with the fringe on the side.
My heart sank to an all
time low about two days
before Christmas when I
passed by the window and
discovered that the watch
was gone. I was mad at Mr.
Cannon and Santa Claus for
letting my watch get away.
For about the first and only
time in my life I wished that I
had all the money in the
world I'd buy that Timex
company and make my own
watches.. .and I'd pass a rule
saying that anytime a boy
under 12 years of age wanted
one of our watches Mr.
Cannon had to sell it for
whatever price the parents
could afford. to pay. I would
have my good friend, Mr.
Sweazy, to get on television
and tell everybody about our
new deal.
For some reason, and to
this day I still don't under-
stand why, we opened our
gifts Christmas Eve night I
mean every year before and
after that Christmas we
opened our presents on
Christmas morning. It was
almost like someone was
trying to give me a message
or something, for this was to
be a special Christmas for
me.
Before I got half the paper
..bff.my:box I saw the Timex
riname oh-it. Son-ofai-gun,I I
couldn't believe it, It was my
watch and I didn't even have
to buy the company. I looked
tt Leon's and David's pre-
sents they didn't cost half
of what mine did. Mother's
gift didn't cost as much as
mine! I figured my brothers
would be upset but they
weren't. They were happy for
me 'cause I'd told them
that's what I wanted. Those
guys have been even more
special to me since that
night.
After we had opened every-
thing, and at our house that
didn't take long, we decided
to ride around and look at the
lights. As we passed houses
my mom would worry about
them because she said that
they had even less than we

Gets Important Post



Chiles Discusses


Topics


of Interest at Breakfast


Florida's senior Senator, Lawton
Chiles told a group of some 125 people
who gathered at Butler's Restaurant
Friday morning that he had paid his
dues in the Senate and would be
chairman of the Appropriations Com-
mittee when the next session convenes
after the first of the year. "I think the
appointment is sort of like being
'named captain of the Titanic just
- after it hit the iceberg, but we're going
to do our best", he said.
Chiles talked to the group mostly
about the budget, the deficit, trade
imbalances and a need for improve-
ment in each of these areas.
"We have our ox in the ditch. We
will be starting a new fiscal year with
-a built-in $170 billion deficit and we
need to get into control of it."
The Florida lawmaker pointed out
-that if we continued to have the
programs we now have from our
'government, there is going to have to
be some more tax income from some
source or another. "We're spending 24
percent of our gross national product
and taxing only 15 percent of the GNP.
Something has to give".
Chiles declared it is very easy to
spend money when you don't have to
pay for what you spend. He predicted
Sthe new tax reforms which will begin
next year will take at least two years
'before any effect is felt from them.
Still, the Senator was skeptical as to
whether or not the reforms would be


sufficient to cure our financial ills.
"We have to quit eating our seed
corn", he philosophized. The speaker
said he would promote more tax
income through growth in the econ-
omy which would raise more revenue
while providing more jobs.
Chiles spent a good portion of his
time scoring the imbalance of the
trade program of our country. He
declared the Japanese expect us to
purchase a major part of their
production, but offer a stiff resistance
to buying ours. "Trade is a give and
take situation", the lawmaker said.
"The Japanese are now, buying
our banks, our lands and our dollars.
In the meanwhile, they are putting up
the stiffest resistance to our goods
coming into their nation. A fair trade
situation is necessary. They can't
expect us to continue buying their
Toyotas when they buy nothing in
return".
Touching on President Reagan's
present situation, Chiles said he was
one of the most popular President's
the nation has ever had, but he has
bad communications with his people
in Washington. "That's his main
problem. He needs to fire Regan and
Casey and shore up his communica-
tions with his people."
Chiles said he felt Reagan is
misinformed about Star wars and that
he made a serious error in Iceland by
not conferring with his Joint Chiefs of


Staff before making his bid to the
Russians. "We're just lucky they
didn't take it", Chiles declared.
Chiles said he supported aid to -'
Nicaraguan rebels fighting the Ortega
regime, but emphasized he did not
supportt the so-called Iran-Contra--
,affair presently being tried by the.
'media. "There are actually four .
Contra groups and, naturally, some of I
them aren't good. We're trying to help <;
those who offer the most for the ,
people".
'WALKING' AGAIN
After the breakfast, in a meeting
with several of his local supporters,
Chiles declared he will be a candidate
for re-election in two years. "I want to
let it be known I will be among the,
candidates before anyone else arN,
ounces. It has been a long time since-
people knew about 'Walking Lawton'
so I must introduce myself all over,
again".
The Senator said he had no
aspirations to be a Presidential'
candidate, but he was more than
willing to give aid and support to'
someone like Senator Sam Nunn of
. Georgia. He declared there is a corps
of southern members of the Senate
and House who can make their voices
felt in Congress once more and could
give considerable support to a candi-
date. "The South is rising again!" he
declared.


Guerry Melton, left, was one of 125 people who gathered last Friday morning at
Butler's Restaurant to meet with Senator Lawton Chiles. Chiles announced that he
would be a candidate for reelection two years from now. -Star photo

Christmas Is Giving
.LT i'x1.1 HAVESBEEN HERE fo~tabhile, trying to decide> .
,nuwhatIrvqil .*rite. Christnias Mft 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 Christmas and I would like to share some
of them with you.
+++++
CHRISTMAS IS THE MOST joyous time of the year
for 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 was about a week
before Christmas, maybe less. Anyway, the Christmas
season was in full swing and downtown Pensacola was
covered with shoppers. There was also an abundance of
Salvation Army "Bell Ringers" stationed 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 contributed 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 disadvantaged 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 committed a grave
mistake, so on returning home I immediately confessed
to my mqther. 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 anything better you could
have done with that money. You don't know how proud I
am of you!"
That was one of the most unforgettable moments of
my life and one that I shall remember and cherish
always about my mother and Christmas.
+4-+++
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 instead of reflection and thankfulness and,
more than anything, 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 CHRIST-
MAS!!!

Man Falls

from Tree;

Impaled

Gulf County has had only
one accident reported during
the Christmas season, this
far, but it was a serious one.
Harold Nunnery, of Wewa-
hitchka, was impaled on a
tree limb in a hunting
accident north of Wewa-
hitchka Sunday. He is a
patient in a Panama City
hospital in serious condition
from the mishap, according
to Gulf County Al Harrison.
Nunnery was deer hunting
from a tree stand, several
feet up a pine tree, when he
apparently slipped and fell
from his perch. When he hit
the ground, he hit a tree limb,
which was sticking up, driv-
ing the limb through his
chest, narrowly missing his
heart.
Nunnery was taken to a
Bay County hospital for
extensive surgery due to the
wound and is presently re-
covering.
Sheriff Harrison said this is
the only accident thus far in
the holiday season, which is a
prime time for accidents to
happen. "I hope it's our last
one, too", the Sheriff said.


For this reason, Ward Ridge decided to
nullify the referendum and the City of Port
St. Joe cancelled plans for an answering
. referendilm in December.
Taylor said Ward Ridge should come up
with a definite date for their balloting
shortly after the first of the year. "We're
wanting to get the matter settled", he said.

SJT&T Will No Longer Provide Corporations Promote Use of Seat Belts


Phone Sets,
Beginning January 1, 1987, St.
Joseph Telephone & Telegraph Com-
pany will no longer provide telephone
equipment or wiring beyond the
entrance to the building (the protect-
or). This is the final phase of
deregulation for the telephone com-
pany as ordered by the Florida Public
Service Commission and the Federal
Communications Commission.
Since the telephone Company will
be "out of the house" at that time,
customers will become responsible
for providing and maintaining their
own telephones, inside wiring and
jacks.
These customers who are still
leasing telephones or any other
premise equipment from St. Joseph
Telephone & Telegraph Company on
December 31, 1986, will begin receiv-
ing billing from St. Joe Communica-
tions, Inc. As part of the Florida
Public Service Commission Order, the
ownership of all customer equipment
previously owned by St. Joseph
Telephone & Telegraph will be
transferred to St. Joe Communica-


, Wiring, A
tions. The only exceptions are devices
for the hearing impaired and certain
emergency reporting systems.
Customers of St. Joseph Tele-
phone & Telegraph Company will
continue to be billed for the local
access line, additional listings, direc-
tory advertising, touch tone lines,
custom calling features, and any
other charges not equipment related.
For new installations beginning
January 1, 1987, St. Joseph Telephone
& Telegraph Company .will do, all
necessary work up to including the,
protector mounted outside the build- .
ing. The customer will be responsible
for any work beyond that point
including the inside wiring, jacks and
telephone instruments. If, at the time
the protector is installed, the inside
wire is in place and pulled through to*
the outside of the building, the
telephone company installer will
connect it inside the protector. If not,
the customer will be responsible for
making the connection himself or
having it done by a serviceman.
Instructions for making this connec-
tion will be mailed to each new


Mistletoe Is An Ancient Custom


Mistletoe is the name given to
represent several different plants
which are all members of the family
Loranthaceae. It has been used as a
Yuletide decoration for centuries. The
soft woody plant, with its dark green,
oval foliage and white berries,
symbolizes peace and love. The Norse
belief may have been the origin of this
symbolism as it was said that men
who met in battle under mistletoe
would stop their fighting and kiss and
make-up. The tradition of kissing
under the mistletoe may have also
originated from the Druids who
considered the mistletoe sacred. They
believed that it held magical virtue
and was a remedy for evil. The priests
would cut pieces of the oak tree on
which the mistletoe grew and -offer
them along with two white bulls as a
sacrifice to pagan gods. Twigs with


berries were hung above doors to
indicate that past grievances and
hatreds were forgiven and it was used
in amulets, bracelets and rings to
ward off evil and protect against
witchcraft, poisoning and evil. It was
also believed to be one of the many
plants used in the wood of the cross
and monks of the medieval church
wore pieces of the wood around their
necks.
These customs and beliefs have
carried over to its use at Christmas
time to encourage passion by way of
kissing. Hanging up the white berries
was a subtle challenge to kiss the
suspecting or unsuspecting individual
who stood beneath it.
But mistletoe is actually a para-
site of several deciduous trees includ-
ing pecan, oak and maple. This means
that mistletoe depends on the host tree

to the tree. It grows up the trunks,
limbs and twigs of these trees, but is
usually found at the canopy where it
can obtain the sunlight it needs.
Mistletoe has roots which obtain
nutrients from the host it parasitizes
rather than from the ground as is
usually the case. The seeds are
produced in the berries that are
covered with an adhesive pulp.
Certain birds eat these berries and the
sticky pulp clings to their beak and
feet and is carried and deposited on
twigs and branches. The seed is also
spread in the birds' excrement. The
berries are also naturally shed and
can adhere to lower branches. After
adhesion, the seeds germinate and
send out roots which penetrate the


bark and enter the water and
nutrient conducting tissue of
a tree. After the young plant
is established it grows very

dies from mechanical break-
age or excessive shade.
Eventually the tree is
weakened and will decline in
p health as it is robbed of its
nutrition by the clinging
isttlet;2 .
There are many species of
this plant growing through-
out the world, but the most
common mistletoe in the
United States is Phoraden-
dron serotinum which is
native to the southeastern
part of the country. It is
usually referred to as the
Eastern mistletoe. Mistletoe
is very difficult to control
because a portion of it grows
into the tree's tissue. Break-
ing away the mistletoe is in-
effective as it will redevelop
at the point of removal and
produce another clump. The
most successful method of
control is to cut out the in-
fected branches when they
appear. The cuts need to be
at least one foot below the
plant where the mistletoe at-
taches.
Today the mistletoe re-
, mains a desirable decoration
for the holiday season. Most
people think of its attractive
white berries and evergreen
foliage in this decorating
context and are surprised to
p hear of its injurious threats
to the trees it parasitizes.
The plant also has poisonous
properties and should be
kept out of the reach of small
children who may be tempt-
ed to ingest the berries.

Since St. Joseph Telephone &
Telegraph Company will not maintain
equipment or inside wiring after
January 1, 1987, it will be important
that all customers attempt to isolate
the trouble source when a problem is
encountered with their telephone
service. St. Joseph Telephone &
Telegraph Company will maintain
service only to the protector. If a
service call is made and the trouble is
* determined to be beyond the protector
(inside the building; for example,
wiring or telephone), there is a
trouble location charge of $20.00.
Customers who suspect a problem
with a.telephone can unplug it and
move it to another jack for testing
prior to calling in a trouble report. If
only one jack is available on the
premises, the telephone can be
checked using a neighbor's jack.
St. Joseph Telephone & Telegraph
Company recognizes that these
changes will require some adjust-
ments and every effort will be made to
make the transition as smooth as
possible.


634 Florida corporations

belt competition sponsored
by the Florida Coalition for
Auto Safety Now. The chal-

Teague, Executive Director
of the Florida Coalition, at a
special corporate safety belt
conference held in Orlando
^ recently.
The Corporate Safety Belt
Challenge is a unique promo-
tion that challenges corpor-
ations to promote safety belt
use to their employees. In-
formant surveys of safety
belt use will be taken during
; the promotional period and
companies who reach a 90
percent employee usage rate
will be declared the winners.
The competition begins on
January 1 and runs through
March 1, 1987. .
Corporations who attended
. the conference learned how
effective safety belt cam-

health and company profits.
Speakers from companies
like Tampa Electric, Ryder

Class Makes Xmas Village


The little elves of Mrs. Arnold's
second grade at Highland View
Elementary have been extremely
busy this Christmas season.
Although they're not at the North
Pole, they've been working as hard as
Santa on their projects.
One of their projects which they
are very proud of and wish to share is
their Christmas village. The village
consists of 15 two story homes. Each
yard is complete "with trees and-
'shrubbery. The town is decorated with
Christmas trees in the center of the
boulevard, which is patroled by the
City Police car. He has a busy job
since each home has a vehicle parked

$325 Average
Spent on Xmas
The nation's 88 million households
will spend an average of $325 each on
Christmas gifts this year, according
to the Conference Board's annual
holiday spending analysis. In all we
will spend about $29 billion this
Christmas.
This year's spending totals are
projected to rise about five percent
over last years levels. About half of
this gift spending increase in 1986 is
caused by higher reatil prices.
These spending totals were based
on a survey of 5,000 households across
the nation. Part of the report states
"with consumers less confident today
and stores having fewer selling days
than a year ago, Christmas sales are
likely to be only moderately better
than last year."

The village will remain in the

Florida Eyes World Export Market for Pecan Sales


A combination of factors has
focused new attention on Florida's
relatively small but growing pecan
industry. The state's crop this year is
up by about half a million pounds, to
5.5 million, while national production
is the lowest in three years at 225.25
million pounds, mostly as a result of
the drought, which largely spared
Florida. This created a situation
unusual in agriculture, high prices in
conjunction with a good crop.
This comes at a time when
Florida producers are beginning to
increase the quantity, quality and
dependability of their product through
more concentrated grove care proced-
ures. Pecan trees tend to produce full
crops only every two or three years,
but regular fertilization, spraying and
irrigation can level out the produc-
tion.

Gulf County is considerably in-
volved in this increase in pecan
production for the consumer market,
as well as other portions of the state.
Before long, Gulf County may be the
pecan producing capital of Florida
since FICO Farms, between Over-
street and Wewahitchka is presently
involved in planting approximately
1,000 acres of pecan trees. FICO is
heavily involved in pecan production
in Arizona and is introducing its
know-how in pecan production and
marketing to Gulf County.

This, in turn, has enabled Florida
to look seriously at the export market
for the first time. In the past, a large
share of Florida nuts were taken to
Georgia for marketing. It takes 40,000
pounds to fill a shipping container.
Kenneth Sheffield of Breacy & Shef-
field Enterprises, Monticello, is trying
to become the first Florida grower to
make a containerized shipment di-
rectly to an overseas market. Shef-

Gulf County Getting
field is caretaker of several groves
besides his own.
Sheffield is a leader among
Florida growers in utilizing modern
techniques of grove care to maximize
his harvest. He hopes that this year's
crop will more than make up for
losses he suffered in the last two
years, partly as the result of 1985
hurricanes.


Right In the Thick of Things with Growing Orchard


ine of the drawbacks to raising
pecans, especially for small operat-
ors. is that it takes several years of
investment before a marketable pe-
can crop can be harvested. Intensive
care procedures increase this invest-
ment still more, which iw why some
growers have been reluctant to take
the long-range gamble. &
Although Florida's 1986 pecans


crop looked very good going into the
season, Dr. Tim Crocker, pecan
specialist at the University of Florida,
says continued warm, wet weather
threatens nuts not yet harvested.
He has found a lot of interest in.
pecans as an alternative crop in areas
where they have not been grown
commercially before, but the high
start-up costs have kept actual


plantings to relatively small acreages
in many cases.
One new technique which may
help cut grove care outlays is the
planting of certain cover crops, such
as vetch and arrowleaf clover,
attractive to beneficial insects which
feed on pecan pests. In one experi-
mental grove, the area not sprayed at
all did at least as well as those which


Acreage


were treated.
Growers like Sheffield hope that by
making use of all the modern
developments, Florida can make a
place for itself as a major supplier in
both domestic and foreign markets.
That could encourage others to switch
to pecans in the northern Florida
counties which have been hit so hard
by the current crisis in agriculture.

EYE FITNESS
Eye fitness is an integral
part of total physical fitness
for young and old alike.
Follow these guidelines to
reduce the strain modern life
puts on your vision:
Look up and away periodi-
cally while doing near vi-
sion tasks.
Light on "what you are do-
ing" should be three times
brighter than the rest of
the room.
Don't read undeca. single
light in an others ark.
room.
The best distance for
reading, writing or other
close work is 14 to 16 inches
for adults, the distance
from mid-knuckle to elbow
for children.
Posture is important. Sit
straight and keep both eyes
an equal distance from
what you are looking at.
Don't watch TV or read
while lying on your back,
side or stomach.
Engage in outdoor sports-
walking is good, too-that
requires using your, eyes
for seeing distance.

Have A Safe

Christmas
State Fire Marshall Bill Gunter
recently urged Floridians to enjoy a
safe holiday season by observing
simple fire safety precautions.
"A beautifully decorated Christ-
mas tree, a child's toy or colorful
holiday lighting may seem to be
unlikely sources of fire," Gunter said.
"But each year these very items when
handled improperly cause property
damage, injury and death."
Last year, fires during December
cause $9.2 million dollars in property
damage and one death. In 1985, an
eight year old West Palm Beach girl
died of smoke inhalation when a string
of lights on the family's artificial
Christmas tree started a blaze which
also damaged the one story frame
housq. All other family members
survived.
The causes of holiday fires
include Christmas trees live,
plastic and metallic, lighting sets and
overloaded outlets. While attention
should be paid to the obvious holiday
fire hazards, Gunter advised Flori-
dians to also be aware of the hazards
of alcohol. Last year, alcohol related
fire deaths increased 15.5 percent in
the month of December more than
any other time during the year.
In a house used by the Tallahas-
see Fire Department to train fire
departments recruits, Gunter demon-
strated proper live tree care, tree
placement and lighting safety. Gunter
also showed what can happen when
fire hazards are ignored by simulat-
ing an electrical fire which ignites a
dried out live tree, worn light sockets
and near-flammable objects.
Gunter advised Floridians to
follow these fire safety precautions:
If you're buying a live tree, select
one that's fresh. Don't buy a tree
that's sheddihg rieedles. j$ut one inch
- off the bottom of the tree at an angle
so it will absorb water. Place the tree
in a sturdy stand and keep it filled
with water above the cut line.
If you buy a plastic tree, make
sure it has a label showing that it's
fire retardant. And whether the tree is
live or not, never smoke near a
Christmas tree or Christmas decor-
ations.
Only use lights approved by a
safety testing agency like Underwrit-
ers Laboratory, labeled UL, or
Canadian Standards Association, la-
beled CSA.
Never put lights on a metallic
tree.
Never put more than three sets of
lights on one extension cord.
If you're putting lights outside,
make sure they're lights specifically
designed and made to be used
outdoors.
Unplug the lighting sets before
you go to bed or leave the house.
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.

"Christmas Traditions


of Other Countries


.:: The magic of Christmas reaches
across continents to touch people of all
races and tongues in a special way.
Wherever you may travel, you will find
he holiday season celebrated in a way
hat is special to the country you are in.
For instance, in Sweden, St. Lucia's
.)ay, December 13, ushers in the holi-
lay season. Tradition dictates that the
oldest daughter of the family must rise
it dawn to serve coffee and cakes to
her family. As St. Lucia, she wears a
white robe and a halo of lighted can-
illes. Public appearances by St. Lucia
are quite common in Sweden today,
.where white-robed girls can be seen
in schools and civic buildings on the
saint's day.
: Holiday festivities begin with a pa-
rade in Mexico on December 16. For
iine consecutive nights, "Joseph" and
"'Mary" search for a room at the inn,
a reenactment known as "Las Posadas"
n this country south of the border. At
,the end of the nine nights, the search-
.rs are finally given posada, and a fies-
ita follows. For the children, the
highlight of the fiesta is the breaking
of the pinata, a clay container stuffed
with candies and other goodies.
t In Argentina, families attend mid-
night mass on Christmas Eve, then sit
Down to a big dinner with pork as the
'main course. After dinner, it's cus-
tomary to enjoy a glass of sidra, simi-
lar to our cider, with pan dulce or
;anetone, as it is also called, due to
the strong Italian influence in that
country.
Another midnight libation is clari-
%co, a blend of white wine, sugar and
Natural fruits of the season. After
,several toasts, it's time to visit friends
!and wish them a happy holiday. These
visits go on until the wee hours of the
morning! Children in Argentina don't
receive their presents until January 6th.
,The night before, they put their shoes
(outside the door or window, a long
(with a tray holding a glass of water and
?some grass for the camels of Los Reyes
'Magos, the Three Kings. In the morn-
(ing, the grass and water will be gone,
%and in their shoes will be presents. In-
'stead of Christmas trees in their
,homes, most Argentinians will have a






-ufR~^'IF'


presepre or nativity scene.
The holiday season begins two
weeks before Christmas Eve in Portu-
gal, when families go looking for their
Christmas tree. In small towns, this
usually means a trip to the forest, but
in the cities, artificial trees are often
used. The tree is decorated with lights
and ornaments a few days before
Christmas Eve. In Portugal, Christmas
is a family affair, with everyone get-
ting together for midnight supper,
which may feature turkey. The young
children place their shoes around the
fireplace for Santa to fill during the
night. In the morning, the shoes will
hold toys, candies and other gifts.
Down under, Christmas comes in
the summertime, a contrast to the
snowy scenes of Europe and many
parts of the United States. Australians
celebrate the season with a Christmas
Day picnic and with another holiday
tradition, the community sing. This
gathering is always held out of doors,
at night, by the light of torches and
candles. Special candles are sold in the
shops, with the proceeds going to char-
ity. The custom of community carol-
ing goes back to the Cornish miners
of the last century, who would gather
on Christmas Eve in the Australian
mines to sing carols, by the light of
candles stuck to the brims of their safe-
ty hats. Today, some of the communi-
ty sings attract over 100,000 carolers.
The caroling goes on until midnight,
ending with the singing of "Auld Lang
Syne."
In France, the creche is the center
of attraction at Christmas time. Every
church, no matter how small, has its
nativity scene for the faithful to ad-
mire. And, each French household has
its own versiori of the nativity. Much
care is taken in the setting up of the
creche, which has holly or other
greens for a background. A star of
Bethlehem is suspended over the
Christ Child, as candles add a rever-
ent glow to the setting.
Around the world, wherever Christ-
mas is celebrated, customs may vary
from country to country, but the spirit
of the season is ever the same.


The Florida Highway Patrol
released its prediction concerning
highway traffic deaths for the upcom-
ing Christmas and New Year's
holiday period. Both holidays are
likely to claim a total of 78 lives;
many as a result of alcohol-related
accidents.
Troopers feel as many as 44 may
die during the 102 hour period
beginning 6 p.m., Wednesday, De-
cember 24, 1986, and ending midnight,
December 28, 1986. Thirty-four are
predicted to lose their lived in
Florida's highways over the 102 hour
period from 6:p.m., Wednesday,
December 31 until midnight January
4, 1987.
"Even a few 'social' drinks can
impair a person's ability to drive,"
according to Colonel Bobby R. Bur-
kett, Director of the Florida Highway
Patrol. "A person can be impaired
well before reaching the level of legal
intoxication."
The Florida Highway Patrol
noted that, because alcohol often
increases confidence while decreas-
ing judgment and self-criticism, peo-
ple who have had a few drinks may
find it difficult to assess whether their


driving skills have been affected.
The week of December 14 20 has
been designated "National Drunk and
Drugged Driving Awareness Week,"
to alert the public during the holiday
season to the threat to life and limb
posed by combining alcohol or drugs
and driving.
In observance of this awareness
week, the Patrol encourages motor-
ists to follow these safety tips:
If you are drinking alcoholic
beverages, limit yourself to one drink
or less per hour. Your body needs
about one hour to eliminate the
alcohol in one drink.
Try to finish your last drink at
least an hour before you think you
might be driving.
Eat before you drink any alcoho-
lic beverages. Snacks can slow down
the rate at which your body absorbs
alcohol.
Plan to use the "Designated
Driver" approach: One person in a
group sticks to nonalcoholic drinks
during the evening. This person drives
the others home. At the next gather-
ing, another person refrains from
drinking alcohol and the responsibili-
ty is rotated.
The Patrol reminds motorists that


one drink equals 12 ounces of beer,
five ounces of table wine, or one and
one-half ounces of 80-proof liquor.
Colonel Burkett also noted that 95
percent of all drivers and passengers
killed in last year's Christmas and
New Year's holiday periods were not
using seat belts, even though they
were available. "Seat belts do save


lives. The majority of those killed last
year could be alive today and they
buckled up," he stated.
"Our main objective is to reduce
the needless loss of lives and human
suffering that results from traffic
accidents. Enforcing DUI laws will be
our top priority during these holiday
periods," concluded Colonel Burkett.

* Rev. Ellis Tells Rotarians: It's God's Christmas-Give Yourselves


Rev. Sid Ellis led up to a final
sentence last Thursday, while giving
the Rotary Club his annual Christmas
message. Ellis declared, "This is
God's Christmas. The greatest gift
you can give Him, is yourselves!"
Ellis declared that Christmas is a
"penitential season" in which man
should express his penitential thanks
to God for sending His Son to earth to
explain to man how he should live and
then died for his sins.
"The way we celebrate Christ-
mas, Santa Claus and Jesus Christ
both came on the same day", Ellis
quipped. "Christmas is more than
food, gifts, and shopping. It isn't
parties, food and drinking. It is a
CHRIST-mas which we all celebrate."'
The speaker pointed out that the
entire Bible is a sort of magnifying
glass' which points to the birth of
Christ,. which is Christmas.
Ellis pointed out that they don't
celebrate Christmas behind the iron
curtain. "There are a few Chris-
tians-mostly old people-who fur-
tively visit the church for a few
minutes to observe Christ's birth, but
they don't tarry". He pointed out that
the governments of these countries
discouraged anything which hints of
God, including Christmas.
We owe God a lot, the speaker
emphasized. "The Christian religion
is the only religion which does not


foster 'getting out' of the world, but
. encourages us to 'get into it'. Live, not
die to achieve a better life in the
hereafter like other religions teach",
he said.
Man is put on Earth only to please
God and not outselves. "Man is not

Legends of

Christmas
There are countless legends that
have grown up around the season of
Christmas.
In Italy, the legend of La Befana
tells of the Three Kings who came to
her home, in search of the Infant Je-
sus. They invited La Befana to join
them on their journey to Bethlehem,
but she refused, for she was too busy
cleaning her house. The following
day, the old woman set out to overtake
the Three Kings, but she never did,
nor did she ever reach Bethlehem.
She would stop wherever there was
a child, leaving a gift, in hopes that
she would find the Christ Child. That
is why Italian children await gifts
brought by La Befana on January 5th.
If they've been naughty however, she
will leave them lumps of coal instead!


essential to anything on Earth, except
to praise God", he said.
He suggested the men in his
hearing spend this Christmas praising


God.
Guests of the club were' Bob
Bearden, Sherman Riley and Andy
Millergren, all of Port St. Joe.


The Origins of Some

Holiday Customs

family. We hope that you will find peace and
contentment this Christmas and always.

4 David and Joyce Moore


Why do we send cards at Christmas
time or put up a tree? There are many
traditions we' take for granted during
the holiday season, and it is interest-
ing to learn how some of these cus-
toms originated.
The ancient Druids can be thanked
for the custom of hanging mistletoe at
Christmas. In the rituals of the
Druids, mistletoe was cut down with
a golden sickle in November. The
mistletoe would be divided up among
the people, who took the plant home
to hang over their doors. The Druids
believed that the plant could work
miracles of healing, protect against
witchcraft, and make the land fertile.
The origin of the custom of kissing
under the mistletoe is not known, but
it may have been inspired by the
plant's supposed powers of fertility.
The Germans originated the custom
of placing a tree in the home at Christ-
mas time. There are several legends
to explain the custom. One credits St.
Boniface, a missionary to Germany
during the eighth century. According
to the legend, one Christmas Eve the
saint chopped down a sacred oak
which had been used as a site for hu-
man sacrifices. As the oak fell, a fir
tree miraculously appeared in its
place. Another legend says that on the
night Christ was born, all the trees in
the forest bloomed and bore fruit,
even though it was the middle of
winter.
Martin Luther, a German, is thought
to have first decorated the Christmas
tree. The story goes that Luther, walk-
ing under the stars one night, was in-
spired to bring home an uprooted fir
tree and place candles on its branches
as a reminder of the heavens.
The nativity scenes that are so be-
loved at Christmas time are a tradi-
tion given to us by St. Francis of
Assisi. On Christmas Eve in 1223,
Francis was inspired to reenact the na-
tivity for the people of the town of
Greccio in Italy. St. Bonaventure


described the event in his writings:
"... they made ready a manger, and
bade hay, together with an ox and an
ass, be brought unto the place... The
man of God, filled with tender love,
stood before the manger, bathed in
tears, and overflowing joy."
It was claimed that the hay used in
the crib had remedied sick beasts af-
terward, and many other wonders
were attributed to this first manger
scene. The idea quickly caught the
fancy of the faithful and before a cen-
tury had passed, carvings of the na-
tivity scene, or creches, were used
throughout Europe during the holiday
season.
The custom of sending Christmas
cards probably originated with an En-
glishman, Sir Henry Cole, who com-
missioned John Horsely to design a
card in 1843. The card featured a fa-
mily celebrating the season, with two
smaller motifs depicting charitable
acts; "Clothing the Naked" and
"Feeding the Hungry." The card was
lithographed and sold in 1846, and
thus the Christmas card was born.
Whether originating in legend or
real life, the customs of Christmas en-
rich the season for us all.


Like these Christmas poinsettias,
may your holidays be bountiful,
bright and beautiful.

Allow Time


for Benefits
Applications for disability bene-
fits often take longer to process than
do applications for other types of
Social Security claims; therefore, you
are urged to gather the necessary
information before applying.
Determining disability under the
law requires both medical and
employment evidence, and the de-
termination may become complica-
ted. The findings must show that'the
applicant has a severe physical or
mental impairment that is expected to
prevent him or her from working for
at least a year, or is expected to result
in death.
There is a five month waiting
period before your benefits may 'be
paid; however, you should apply'as
soon as you become disabled to make
certain that the claim is processed in
time for benefits to begin with the
sixth full month of disability.
The following information should
be available when you apply for
disability benefits:
Social Security number, date last
worked, date sickness began or injury
occurred, nature of illness or injury,
dates and places of treatment,
including names, addresses, and
telephone numbers of doctors, hospi-
tals, institutions or clinics, military
service serial number and VA claim
number if medical care was received
in a military service or VA hospital,
the kinds of jobs held the most in the
15 years before disability began and
social security numbers and dates of
birth of spouse and minor children.
However, do not delay applying
for benefits even if all the information
is not immediately available.


by church services, parties and gifts
to increase our emotional awareness
that people care about us," says
Patricia Miller, professor of psycho-
logy at the University of Florida.
"The fact that people care about us
feeds our self-esteem, which is the
basis for personal fulfillment."
Without holidays like Christmas,
it would be harder to maintain human
contact in a mobile society, especially
in Florida: "Holidays provide a
means of social interaction for people
on the go," says Miller.
And the nice thing about Christ-
mas, says religion professor David
Hackett, is that it doesn't tend to
exclude people because of their
religious beliefs like other Christian
holidays: "Most practices like tree
decorating and stringing lights on a
house were borrowed from pagan
agricultural and solar observances in
mid-winter, so there shouldn't be any
conflict of beliefs."
Hackett says that some rituals
can strengthen our spirituality, and
suggests that individuals develop
their own practices.
Miller agrees, "Holiday rituals,
especially those prepared in chrono-
logical order, provide a sense of
stability during a fast-paced season."
But Christmas revelers should be
careful not to fill their calendars with
so many events that it's a strain to
keep up with the schedule, says
Miller.
Traditional holiday practices, in-
cluding spiritual devotions; visits to
family and friends, the burning of yule
logs (symbolic of warmth and lasting
life), caroling, banquets and greeting
cards, may be altered to suit your
originality, and your schedule. "A
person's calendar of events should be
flexible to avoid fatigue and mental
stress," says Miller.
As for the exchange of gifts, this
practice should be the result of mutual
love, not economic equality. "We live
in a self-centered culture," says
Hackett. "Often a person will give


only because he received something.
Instead, we should give from the


heart, whether or not there is a
holiday."
