This Thing Which
Has Come to Pass
And it came to pass in those days, that there
went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that
all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing
was first made when Cyrenius was governor of
And all went to be taxed, everyone into his
own city. And Joseph also went up from Gali-
lee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea,
unto the city of David, which is called Bethle-
hem; (because he was of the house and lineage
of David) to be taxed with Mary his espoused
wife, being great with child.
And so it was, that, while they were there,
the days were accomplished that she should be
delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn
son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there was
no room for them in the inn.
And there were in the same country shep-
herds 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
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.
-- AfOl. it came to pass, as the angels were gone ,,
yi atO- from them into heaven, the shepherds i.
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
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 pon-
dered 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 unto them.
The Fourth Wis Cobee Man
The Fourth Wise Man
Eddie Ray Gilbert was a good
guy but lots of things got past
him. My Dad would try to make
conversation with him and after
about two minutes Dad would re-
member he had something to do,
down at the barn. Late that night
after every one had left Dad would
kinda' shake his head and say, "I
love Eddie Ray, but boys, he's a
little slow on the up take."
I don't think it was a bad
learning problem he made D's
and F's like the rest of us. The dif-
ference was, Eddie Ray was try-
ing. He'd get upset over a real bad
grade, which meant of course he
was feeling kinda' low most every-
day. The teachers looked out for
Eddie Ray, went out of their way
to be nice and would explain
things to him over and over, more
slowly each time. Poor Eddie Ray
couldn't get it, and those teachers
wouldn't give him a grade. You
know how they are about that.
. Mrs. Gilbert told Mother once
that the school and Dr. Holmes
had recommended that Eddie Ray
see some specialist in Memphis.
Of course, you know the problem
with that, the Gilberts couldn't af-
ford a bus ticket to Greenfleld, 16
miles away, so Memphis was out
of the question. And pay a big city.
specialist to look at Eddie Ray? It
wasn't going to happen. And if
you're thinking why didn't they
just ask for help well, you
didn't know Mr. Gilbert.
Eddie Ray was a year or two
or three ahead of me in school but
I caught him in the fifth grade.
Some of the boys in class stayed
on Eddie Ray all the time. They
wanted to know if he slumbered
in his sleep, who was buried in
Grant's Tomb, which came first
the chicken or the goat. Eddie Ray
didn't seem to mind. He never got
mad. I don't think he understood
just exactly what they were up to.
I mostly laid off Eddie Ray ex-
cept for about the rock. We had
been down to Sugar Creek skip-
ping rocks and were coming up
the hill when we met Eddie Ray.
He asked what were we doing?
Ricky still had a rock in his hand
and he started jumping up and
down as excited as all git out
about finding a genuine Indian
medicine rock. He's a'showing it
to Eddie and we're in to it.now.
"It's real all right."
"Must'a belonged to a real In-
"They sold one last year at the
fair fot a hundred dollars and it
wasn't no where about as big as
"Best thing about it is it
brings good luck to the fella who's
got it." '
"Guy who has this rock will
not have any more problems."'
"Girls flock t6 the owner of a
genuine Indian medicine rock.
"It's got special powers.".
We gave that ordinary, noth-
ing, Sugar Creek rock to Eddie
Ray in a special ceremony and
you'd a'thought he'd won the
moon. He showed his Indian
medicine rock to everyone, ,and
told them all how special it was.
He was proud as a peacock. Of
course, most everybody was
laughing about the special Indi-
an medicine rock and asking Ed-
die Ray if they could "Rub it for
luck." Eddie was getting attention
and he wouldn't have traded that
rock for a million dollars.
I hate the first day of school
after Christmas. The teachers al-
ways have you stand up and tell
the class "what you got for Christ-
mas." We'd start over there with
the row by the window and go
around the room. LaRenda,. Pam.
Nola, Betsy and all the rest of.the
girls got dolls. How juvenile. Yogi
got a Daisy BB gun. I had to get
up and tell about my Red Ryder
gloves with the fringe. Eddie Ray
got up and once again showed off
his genuine Indian medicine
rock. He said, "I got it a few weeks
before Christmas but I count it as
a Christmas present."
We worked down the last row
by the wall 'till we got to Raymond
Dodd. Raymond didn't stand up.
Miss Penick said, "Raymond,
stand up and tell us what you got
Raymond Dodd stood up but
he didn't say nuthin'. He mostly
studied his feet. Mr. Dodd had
been laid off at the saw mill for
months. Raymond didn't get a
Christmas present. After what
seemed like five minutes Miss Pe-
nick realized what was going on
so she said, "Next."
I saw Raymond that after-
noon after school and was going

THE ONLY BAD THING about
Christmas is that it seems such a
short time since we had the last
one. Really, it seems like only a
month or so ago that we were try-
ing to wind things down here at

for Christmas without haviring to
worry about what needed to be
done here at the office. The time is
Just zipping by,and,I know what

But, that's another story.
Let's get back on Christmas,
As usual, it will be a bleak day
for some. For most of us, it will be
an extremely happy occasion. It
will be a day for family and most
families will even forget to fuss
with one another for most of the
rest of this week, at least.
It's a pity it is one of the two or
three days in the year in which
most of us who have plenty to eat
will think of those who haven't.
But, at least, those who don't have
plenty to eat can look forward to
Christmas because it is one of
those days during the year, when
they, too, will be well fed.
I JUST HOPE NONE of my
friends or relatives become one of
those statistics we all read about
at this time of the year.
You know the type. The high-
way patrol says a few dozen peo-
ple will die on the highways dur-
ing the holiday week end.
The national safety council
gives us the statics that a number
of people will die from bums, ex-
posure, home accidents, frostbite,
drowning, electrocution, in fires,
It will be a merry Christmas if
one of those statistics isn't felt
here in Gulf County. We have had
them in the past, but for the most
part, holiday accidents usually
pass us by.

Playing in the losers bracket,
the Sharks stumbled to the
Blountstown Tigers, 77-62 in the

The Sharks had tamed the Ti-
gers on December 6, but lost their
momentum in the second half of
Saturday night's game while the
Tigers surged ahead.
The Sharks carried a 41-37
edge into the locker room with
them at half time, but came back
to put on two 12 point perfor-
mances in each of the final two
periods, while the Tigers went on
a 26 point scoring spree in the fi-
Kevin Cox had 15 points to
lead the Shark scoring. Willie
Smith and Eric Langston had 12
points each and Cody Thomas
bucketed 10 for the Sharks. Cox
hit three 3-pointers on his way to
scoring 15 points and Cody
Thomas hit two.
Richard Gatlin led the Tigers
with 24 points.

Selecting A Plant For A Gift
Carter Gives A Few Tips On Selecting a Healthy Plant
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Christmas shopping can-be
quite a challenge to your to your
brain, as well as your budget. In
addition to the consideration of

cost, there's always that old ques-
tion of what to give. For some of
those on your list, plants might
offer a nice solution. A healthy,
vigorous plant usually is a wel-
come addition for either home or
landscape. But, before you rush
to your favorite nursery, you
should consider what to look for,
and what to avoid in plant selec-
Whether you're shopping for
a gift plant for a friend, or fo ahn
addition 'to your own collection,
you should choose your purchase
carefully. Plants come in a wide
range or grades, conditions, and
standards, and it's sometimes
hard to tell which ones have the
best chance for survival. Usually,
better plants will cost you more
money. But, this isn't a hard and
fast rule. When nurseries have
sales they offer top quality plant
at bargain prices. The important
thing is to be able to tell what
quality is. My information on
plant selection was provided by
Extension Urban Horticulture
specialist Dr. Robert Black, of the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food an Agricultural Sciences.
If you visit a nursery which
tags plants according to the
standards of the Florida Division.
of Plant Industry, you'll have a
much easier time deciding on
quality. A "Florida Fancy" is an
extremely healthy, vigorous plant,
well shaped, with good strong'
branches and dense foliage. A
"Florida Number One" is a
healthy, vigorous plant with a
good shape and a good supply of
leaves. All other plants are la-"
beled "Number Three" while those,
are the cheapest plants, they also
have the poorest chance of survi-
val. If your nursery doesn't classi-.
fy plants this way, or if you buy
gift plants' from a supermarket,
discount store, or similar outlet,
you'll need to be able to identify
vigorous, healthy plants on your"
S.Look for compact, .rather thail
spindly plants. An abundance oP
foliage is usually a good sign. A,
spindly plant without a good sup-'
ply of leaves may be the victim of
various leaf spot diseases or ine-
sect problems which have caused
leaves to fall. Make sure the
leaves have good uniform colors
Check tips of leaves for brown or
yellow discoloration. Inspect the
trunk and branches to see that
they are well-formed, without
cracks, peels or scars.
Carefully examine each plant
for any signs of insect or disease
problems. Some things to look for
are speckling on the leaves,
which indicates spider mite inju-
ry; curled or distorted leaves,
caused by aphid injury; and small
bumps on stems and underside of
leaves, resulting from a scale at-
tack. Common disease problems
often, show up in yellow on brown
leaves, rotting stems, and brown
Some other considerations
involved where a gift plant will
eventually be grown. If the plant
is to be kept indoors, you should
determine whether it requires
special lighting. If the plant Is to
be grown outdoors, you must de-
termine whether it's adaptable to
the climatic conditions of its
eventual planting site. Your nur-
seryman should be able to help
you in making such decisions.
If you follow these basic
guidelines for selecting gift
plants, your living Christmas
presents should provide many
years of enjoyment.

Sending Christmas Cards
Several years ago I read an article about an unusual person
who would, on special occasions, send cards to friends. The unu-
sual thing about his sending cards was if it was his friend's birth-
day, he might send them a Christmas card; if it was Christmas he
would send a get-well or Happy Anniversary card.
The point was the person receiving the card never forgot he
had received a card from this man. He had remembered them on
that special day.
People don't sent Christmas cards like they did some years
ago. One reason, I think, is because mailing cards is expensive.
.. Let's face it, by the time you buy a nice card, address and seal it
and buy a stamp to mail .it, you're talking a.buck or more. If most
of us sent a Christmas card to each of our close friends we would
probably have close to five dollars invested.
Just last week I received an envelope in the mail. It was one
of those long, business envelopes and was kinda bulky. It didn't
have a name on the outside but I recognized the address as being
.the home of a friend. I feared that he had remembered the money
I owed him and was billing me, hoping to collect before the first
of the year to help pay his taxes.
S The contents, however, surprised me. Inside, neatly folded at
the bottom, so it would fit into the envelope, was a Christmas
card. .a used Christmas card! The person's name who originally
sent the card had been scratched out and in its place was this
warm, personal message: "Dear Shad: Things have been sorta
lean around our house this year but we're hoping things will be
better next year. We want to wish you and your family the very
best this Christmas and in the coming year." It was neatly signed
with this post script: "Hope things have been better at your
Someone once said,'"Ideas are a dime a dozen, but one that
works is priceless!" That card gave me an idea. How could I save a
few dollars on Christmas cards this year and the coming years?
Suddenly it came to me! I could wish my friends Holiday

Bond Sales In Gulf Hit $146,320
Our'hope is for a world filled with

Steve, Melba & Cindy Richardson
Fiscal year 1988 sales of Un-
tied States Savings Bonds in Gulf
County hit $146,320 reported
Jane Willoughby, Area Manager,
U.S. Savings Bonds Division.
Across the state of Florida, sales
totaled $264,649,026, while sales
throughout the nation reached
$7.26 billion for the same period.
Since the Introduction of the
market-based interest system in
November 1982, the total amount
held by the public in Savings
Bonds has climbed from $67.8
billion to $107.8 billion a 59%
increase. Presently, more people
own Bonds than any other securi-
ty in America.
Willoughby said, "Bonds con-
tinue to meet the financial needs
of many citizens through regular
and systematic savings, and as a
result, sales remain very good.
That's not surprising, since the
consumer and our government
both benefit. For the consumer,
Bonds offer advantages such as
competitive market-based inter-
est rates, great tax advantages,
complete risk-free security, small
.purchase amounts required, and
ease of purchase at banks or
through company payroll savings
"Our country also benefits be-
cause bonds continue to provide
non-inflationary financing to our
government. This contributes
greatly to cost-effective debt
management. There is a direct
savings to the tax-paying public
of $60 million for each billion dol-
lars in bonds sold.
