Gulf County may be near to
closing two deals which have
caused the Board considerable
anxiety all year long, it was
learned at the County Commis-
sion meeting Monday.
Administrative Assistant Lar-
ry Wells said that conferences
with Department of Community
Affairs representatives Tony Ar-
rant and Bill Sadowski, has ham-
mered out a tentative agreement
in four areas previously noted by
the DCA in their rejection of Gulf

Blood Drive for
0 Replacement
Starts Tuesday
With whole blood supplies
dangerously low for a holiday pe-
riod, area blood banks are con-
ducting whole blood collection
drives throughout the Panhandle
just prior to the Christmas holi-
days. Estimates are that there
will not be enough blood available
to meet the expected demands
the holiday season brings.
One of these drives will be
held here in Port St. Joe Tues-
day of next week. The collec-
tion process will begin at 1:00
p.m., and continue to 7:00
p.m., in the social hall of the
First United Methodist Church.
The blood supply will furnish
area hospitals with their whole
blood supply.
To be eligible to give blood,
persons must be 17 years of age
or older, but not over 66 unless
with a doctor's statement of good
health. They must weigh more
than 110 pounds. Donors should
eat and drink adequately before
donation to avoid reaction. Do-
nors are advised not to give blood
on an empty stomach. ,-
Pre-registration may be done
by calling the church office at
227-1724 from 9 to 12 and 1 to
3, each week day.
The Panhandle drive is part
of a nation-wide appeal to replen-
ish dwindling blood stocks.

Santa On His
Way to Visit
Wewahitchka
Santa Claus will visit We-
wahitchka Saturday after-
noon, when a big parade will
usher the old gentleman from
the North Pole into town.
The parade will start at
2:00 p.m., in front of the old
elementary school on Main
Street and proceed up Main
Street to the Daniels Service
Station building.
Features of the parade will
be a delegation from the
Shriners, several floats, the
High School band, marching
groups, horses, decorated cars
and Santa Claus riding the fire
truck.
Organizations who wish to
enter floats in the parade still
have time to call the City Hall
and register.

Lanford Resigns


Posts at PSJHS


Port St. Joe's head football
coach and athletic director, Phil
Lanford, surprised everyone the
end of last week, by tendering his
resignation from these positions
at the high school.
Lanford presented his resig-
nation letter to acting principal
Wes Taylor and Superintendent
Walter Wilder Friday afternoon.
He announced his decision to his
team Monday.
"It wasn't something which
was easy to do," Lanford said. "I
have enjoyed my six year associa-
tion with Port St. Joe. The people
and the town have shown great
support for our program."
The head coaclisaid his dec-
sion was made solely because he
felt he had an opportunity to go
into private business which he
felt he couldn't pass up. "I have
purchased the Athletic House
sporting goods store and felt I
couldn't do justice to either the
team or the business by being in-
volved with both," he said.
Lanford said he had been
wanting to go into private busi-
ness, for the future of his family,
for a long time. "I had seriously
considered it before coming to my

'The opportunity just pre-
sented itself suddenly. I really
wasn't expecting it and felt I
couldn't allow it to pass by," Lan-
ford said. He will still be involved
with the school system as a
-teacher.
During his six years at foot-
ball coach at Port St. Joe high
school, his teams came from 1-9
the first year, to the state cham-
pionship finals four years later.
The team has won three District
titles under Lanford's guidance.
Lanford has been in coaching
16 years, with Port St. Joe his
first stint as head coach.

Duplicate Street Names

Port St. Joe Postmaster, Dennis Geoghagan advised the Gulf
County Commission by letter Tuesday, that there is a necessity
to change street names in the Highland View, Oak Grove, Beach-
es area because of duplication of names.
The action has been anticipated by the Commission because
of preparations necessary for the county's new 911 system. Re-
sistance to street name changes erupted in Highland View about
a year ago, when attempts were made to change street names
there, with the people agreeing to having changes made "if it was
necessary". They let it be known they didn't want it done on a
whim.
Larry Wells, of the 911 committee, also advised the Board
Tuesday that, "It is now necessary. Our committee can't make
that decision, but we're notifying the Board that a change, some
how, somewhere, is necessary to make the 911 program effec-
tive."
Geoghagan said the postal service is installing more and
more automated sorting machines in the area offices-including
Port St. Joe-which will only add to the confusion already being
caused by having several streets served out of the same office,
carrying the same name. 'The machine doesn't know if an ad-
dress to Second Streed is Second Street in Port St. Joe, Second
Street in Highland View or Second Street in Beacon Hill," Geo-
ghagan said.
Wells said this problem will be experienced by ambulances,
fire departments, law enforcement officials and other emergency
vehicle response, which the 911 system is designed to facilitate.
Geoghagan furnished the Commission a list of 15 instances
where more than one street carries the same name in the service
area of his office.
Board Chairman, Billy Traylor acknowledged that the Board
is going to have to come up with a solution to the problem in the
very near future. Commissioner Ed Creamer reiterated that he
would not support any changes "unless the people of Highland
View have input to the action."
The remainder of the Commission was agreeable to get at the
job and get it done in a short while.

A Legend

A genuine, bona-fide legend died in our town last week.
Sometimes we don't acknowledge a legend when he or she lives
in our midst because to us the legend is just a good friend, a
fond acquaintance or an especially favorite neighbor. Being a
legend is sometimes the farthest thing from our mind.
That's one of the reasons a person can legitimately be called
a legend, though. They are usually unassuming people, just do-
ing a job, or they happen to be in the right place at the right
time.
With our Port St. Joe legend, it was both. Herman Dean went
about doing his job and doing it well. He was always concerned
that what he was doing was to the satisfaction of those about
him. In a way, he was a perfectionist. He also happened to be in
the right place at the right time. Mainly, he was the last living
person to have been in that right place at the right time.
Last year, several of Dean's former band members and even
those who had never played under him, honored the grand old
man of band music for Port St. Joe, on the occasion of his 90th
birthday. They had a special day for Dean and named the music
suite at Port St. Joe High School in his honor. Dean and his
family were there. It was something done, an honor paid, recog-
nition given to someone who deserved it while he was still alive
and could experience the love and respect those around him had
for the man.
The love and respect was the key at the special day. Every-
one present knew Dean was the last living member of the world-
famous John Phillip Sousa band. Certainly that's distinction
enough for most people. To have been a part of a legendary mu-
sic organization, as famous as Mozart, Liszt, Schumann, etc., in
its own right, is an accomplishment of legendary proportions.
The special day for Dean, however, was held because of the
mark he left on Port St. Joe and on those who participated in his
special activity. He was in Port St. Joe's school system for a
short 15 years, but during that time, he brought some of the re-
spect afforded a member of the Sousa band to Port St. Joe's
band program. It has never been the same before or since. And
that's sad. Because we believe that was the one thing Herman
Dean would have enjoyed most as a tribute-to have Port St.
Joe's band program maintain the quality and respect he molded
into the program during his tenure here.
Our present band master studied under Dean. All of this
writer's children, with the exception of one, were in the band un-
der Dean. Perhaps none of them is the musician Dean, or Sousa
was, but all have a solid respect for good music, which Dean in-
stilled in them. That's something worth having and it came from
a man who lived what he taught.


No Objections Here

Port St. Joe is experiencing one of the reasons Governor Law-
ton Chiles is insistent on making some changes in state govern-
ment agencies. The bureaucracies have become so bogged down
with rules and regulations designed to give somebody a cushy
job that they cannot do an effect job with the duties they are
charged to perform.
For at least 20 years, the City of Port St. Joe has maintained
a small boat launch site at the west end of Fifth Street. The ven-
ture isn't a profit making activity. The City felt it was ludicrous
for a community to be located on the shores of a beautiful bay
like St. Joseph's Bay and not provide a way of getting a boat into
that bay for the people to enjoy.
The launch site is a small one as launch sites go, but it is
usually kept in good shape and is a much-used facility. From
time to time it needs maintenance and in order to repair any-
thing at all which is broken or needs repairs at the launch site
from a broken board in the small dock alongside the launch slip,
a couple of rocks thrown into an eroded place, or a light re-
placed which has been knocked down, all requires a permit from
two state agencies and one from the Corps of Engineers, a U.S.
government agency.
Even maintenance of existing facilities requires permits .
from all three agencies.
The Corps of engineers is usually pretty prompt at giving its
permission after an explanation is presented to them. But the
state agencies take 40 forever to issue their permits. The City of
Port St. Joe has been trying for over six months to get state per-
mission to do some maintenance to a washed out hole at the end
of the concrete launching apron-a simple, inexpensive job. You
would think they had asked for permission to dredge a 100 foot
deep channel all across the Bay. The state still hasn't given its
permission and therein lies one of the reasons the Governor
wants things changed in Tallahassee. He'll get no objections
from this comer.


Hunker Down with Kes I


I Finally Get to be Bobby Hull


Kesley
Colbert


"Dad, come here! QUICK!"
I bolted out of the bedroom,
the urgency in his voice sent my
heart into another gear. What has
happened? I jumped the golf
clubs in the hall and flew into the
kitch-
"Hurry, Dad!"
Could Cathy finally a'had
enough? She must have one of
them by the throat! I hope Jesse
hasn't stuck Josh with the hot
poker. I told him the next time he
did that... I checked the micro-
wave as I vaulted the bar. Well, at
least they're not lab testing the
hamster again. I hurdled the
couch. "What's happ-"
"Dad, look at this!"
They are watching a hockey


game on T.V. "Boys..." I had to
stop and catch my breath.
"Look at'em go, Dad." Jess
was jumping up and down.
"Awesome!" That was Josh's
new word for the week. It meant
far out.
I like'n to have broke my neck
getting here and it's a hockey
game! Well, it was the part of the
hockey game where the fight
breaks out. "Boys, you scared
me..." I looked at the screen. Son
of a gun. It was a good one. Eve-
ry player on both teams were on
the ice, duking it out.
"Look at that guy without his
shirt, Dad!"
ESPN was replaying the
brawl. According to Dan Patrick.
there was one broken Jaw, one
broken ankle and 10 players
ejected from the game. They
wouldn't have the stitch count
until the 11 o'clock edition of
Sports Center.
Josh and Jess were moving
the furniture back. "Dad, what
can we use for a hockey puck?"
I'd heard that question be-


fore. It was another December. I
was about Jess" age...
Everett's Lake had completely
frozen over. "I don't know. I've
never even seen a real puck."
"Well." Buddy was disgusted,
"we've got to come up with some-
thing. And we've got to hurry. The
sun stays out long on that lake,
it'll start to thaw out."
"What about a can of Redbird
Vienna Sausages? It's round and
flat." Ricky Gene was good at
thinking.
"And you sure can't eat them
things."
I agreed with that! Genuine
imitation Redbird Vienna Sausag-
es weren't fit for human con-
sumption. And you could get
three cans for 19C.
We headed for the lake by
way of Woodrow Kennon's store.
We'd borrowed Yogi's croquet
mallets. They were near about
perfect hockey sticks.
"What teams are we going to
be?"
"What teams are there?"
We studied on that for a


while. The Detroit Red Wings and
the Black Hawks were the only
two teams we could think of. We
didn't know much about ice
hockey in 1959.
"I'm going to be Bobby Hull."
Yogi got the guy I wanted to be.
Ricky Gene stuck out his bot-
tom lip in grim determination,
"No, I'm Bobby Hull."
"I'm Bobby Hull. I said it
first."
"I'm always Bobby Hull."
'You can't 'always be' Bobby
Hull, we ain't never played hock-
ey before."
Ricky Gene hit Yogi with a
croquet mallet and the fight was
on. We hadn't even got to the lake
yetl
I was Gordle Howe. He was
the only other hockey player I'd
ever heard of. We chose up sides,
dropped that Redbird can on the
ice and the game was on. We
didn't have skates of course. But
it didn't matter. With our slick
soled boots we could slide for a
mile. We were moving toward the

Plans and Schedules Are Prone to Be Shattered This Time of the Year


I HAD EVERY good intention
in the world to have my Christ-
mas shopping done by this time .
. at least by the end of next
week. But things have changed
and here I am in a dilemma
again.
I guess it's all my fault, how-
ever. The week end of Thanksgiv-
ing, Frenchie and I took off
Wednesday afternoon, and we
didn't get back until last Sunday
afternoon. We stopped and had
Thanksgiving dinner with her
brother in Perry, Georgia and as
soon as we had our piece of pe-
can pie, we headed north.
We wasted the whole week
end in Dillard, Helen and Atlanta,
Georgia, spending money like
drunken sailors. Frenchie bought
a candle and two bottles of barbe-
cue sauce. I didn't buy anything.
Frenchie picked up all the
pine cones on the ground in Hel-
en and brought them home with
us. I just followed along and car-
ried the plastic bag she put them


in. me in a bind, time-wise.


So, you see, we frittered away
a full week end in that manner.

NOW, THINGS HAVE been
complicated by the court system
of Gulf County. I intended to have
all my Christmas shopping done
by next week, but the other day I
received "greetings" in the mail
from Bennie Lister's office, telling
me I have jury duty next week.
That tears it!
I don't mind serving my time
on the jury, or being exposed to
time served on jury duty, but
next week is really going -to put


Like most merchants, we are
trying to make up a little slack
with Christmas business and,
now I have to spend some of that
time waiting in a jury pool. That
might make me prejudiced.
I got caught in a jury pool call
a few years back and I turned up
dutifully only to find that the
state wasn't ready to try the case
after the second day of attempt-
ing to, and it was finally thrown
out of court.
That was in the days before
Jim Appleman and Fred Witten.
Well, all of us on the jury spent


two half days cooling our heels in
the Gulf County Courtroom, only
to be told just before noon on the
second day that the prosecution
couldn't produce their lone wit-
ness after two days of reporting
for trial, so the trial was called off
and the jury sent home.
That ticked me off, to waste
all that time, simply because
someone hadn't planned proper-
ly. I said so in so many words in
this column and the Circuit
Judge at that time sent me an an-
gry and threatening letter about
the matter, telling me, in so many
words, that the court did no
wrong and I should not be talking
about it in deprecating words.
Huh!
NOW, HERE WE ARE again,
right in the middle of my Christ-
mas shopping plans, sending out
a clarion call to Jury duty.
I trust my old friends, Fred
and Jim to at least make this re-
porting experience profitable in


that it won't be time wasted like
my last experience. It would be a
terrible blow to have an appear-
ance in court come to an abort
situation simply because of some-
thing someone didn't do and in-
terrupt plans laid several months
ago.
Serving on a jury is not some-
thing I beg to do, you under-
stand, but it's something I will do
because everyone should make
themselves available on occasion
to serve in this important part of
our system. If I ever am faced
with having to go to court for
something, I hope my jury is
made up of someone who report-
ed because he thought it was nec-
essary that he do so, because it is
one of our freedoms.
I would dearly hate to face a
jury made up of people who were
there for the daily stipend it pays.
I would take a person who
had to miss doing his Christmas
shopping, over having this sort of
person decide my future.


I JUST HOPE the ones on
trial during this week, realize
what they are receiving from a
person who gives up his time and
defers his responsibilities, to sit
on a jury deciding his/her fate.
Not only is it a large responsibili-
ty, it's a sizeable inconvenience
for those who are there simply be-
cause their number was called
and through no fault of their
own.
I understand that, after the
first of the year, jurors will be se-
lected in a lottery-like manner,
picking from drivers' license num-
bers. This will make it all but im-
possible for anyone to avoid serv-
ing at some time or another.
Not only will this system get
those planning to use that time to
do their Christmas shopping, it
will get those who never planned
to serve under any conditions.
The one being tried may get
off free, but the prospective jurors
won't!

A Plan for Living
One day last week I found an envelope on my desk addressed
to me, but had no postmark. It had apparently been hand deliv-
ered. The return address revealed that it was from a friend and I
immediately opened it, anxious to see what was wrong.
During the several years I have written this column, I have
received several letters, most of which were of a positive and
complimentary nature. A few people, however, wrote telling me in
no uncertain terms what I could do with my opinions, typewriter
and column. Several more wrote to tell me that a certain article
had sparked a remembrance of a personal nature and most were
kind enough to share it with me.
Such was the case with the envelope I found on my desk last
week. The envelope contained a note and a message and both
were so nice and compelling that I felt I must share them with
you. It was dated November 26, 1991. It said:
Dear Wendell:
I Just read your "Thanksgiving" article. It was greatly You
couldn't have put it better. All we have to do is open our eyes to
see the things we should be thankful for.
I ran across the enclosed the other day. I found it on my
aunt's refrigerator last year, the morning after she died. I thought
you might like it. It's the way she lived and we should try to live.
Hope you and your family had a great Thanksgiving!
The letter was signed and the following was enclosed:
Live each day to the fullest; get the most from each hour,
each day, and each age of your life. Then you can look forward
with confidence and back without regrets.
Be yourself but be your best self. Dare to be different and
enjoy what is beautiful. Love with all your heart and soul. Believe
that those you love, love you.
Forget what you have done for your friends and remember
what they have done for you. Disregard what the world owes you,
and concentrate on what you owe the world.
When you are faced with decisions, make that decision as
wisely as possible then forget it. The moment of absolute cer-
tainty never arrives.
AND ABOVE ALL, remember that God helps those who help
themselves. Act as if everything depended upon you and pray as
everything depended upon God.
As you can see, my friend was wrohg. I could have put it bet-
ter and someone' did. My friend's note will be placed among my
most cherished letters. I have retyped the "Plan for Living" and I
will'endeavor to. form a habit of reading it each morning.
Thanks, Greg,'and I hope you and yours have the best Holi-
day Season ever

SOLID WASTE
M&O was the recent low bid-
der to contract for operating
Gulfs solid waste collection sys-
tem, at a price of $8.75 for resi-
dences with once a week pick-up.
The price includes hauling the
solid waste to the incinerator, but
does not include billing services.
Individual customer billing is one


question still to be resolved.
A sliding scale for commercial
collection was offered, which is
less than the present scale being
used.
M&O agreed to pick up solid
waste from the Courthouse,
county parks and churches at no
charge.
Chairman Billy Traylor said
M&O and the County will talk
further before any contract is
signed.

He didn't ever go for the Redbird

I didn't care about the game
any more. I was going after Bud-

into a pine tree, busted his lip up
something awful.
Yogi and Ricky Gene would
take one swing at the puck and
two at each other. Buddy elbowed
me in the fact. I hit the ice again.
Nicky Joe chipped a tooth. That
Redbird can was hard as a rock.
But at least we found something
useful to do with it.
I don't have any idea what
the score was. We played and
fought near about all day. My

me down. I don't know how Yogi

Cage Season Opens at Home Friday


Port SL Joe's basketball
Sharks had a rude greeting in
their first game of the season
Tuesday night, in Panama City,
as the Rutherford Rams took ad-
vantage of a big first quarter mar-
gin to dump the Sharks, 89-67. It
was the third game of the young
season for the Rams.
The Rams used their superior


height to hold the Sharks at bay
in every quarter, after running off
a 12-point lead in the first stan-
za.
Vince Addison, a part-time
player last year, was high point
man for his team with 12 points.
Arion Nickson added 11 and Alar-

PROBING THE POCKETS


Stephen K., a 46-year-old ac-
countant, noticed that his gums
bled when he brushed his teeth
or bit into an apple. He visited
his dentist who commenced ex-
amining him by inserting a little
"perio" probe between his teeth
and gums to find the extent of
the "pockets". After an x-ray ex-
amination showing the amount
of tooth-supporting bone loss,
he was given the bad news. He
had advanced periodontal dis-
ease and would lose at least
three teeth which were beyond
help and have to undergo exten-
sive care to hopefully save the
other 29.
Of the 125 million adults


who still have their teeth (20 mil-
lion have already lost theirs),
about 100 million have periodon-
tal disease. And in 32 million, it
is in an advanced stage, mean-
ing that they too will become
toothless unless they undergo
extensive treatment.
There is no need for perio-
dontal tooth loss. Learn to clean
your teeth properly and they
should last a lifetime like they
are suppose to.

HOME OPENER
The Sharks will play their
first home game of the new sea-
son Friday night. The team will
have another 3A foe, in Bay High,
as they try for their first win of
the season in the familiar sur-
roundings of R. Marion Craig Col-
iseum.
After these two initial games
of experience with competition,
the Sharks will enter the Panama
City Mosley Tournament next
week end just before the Christ-
mas break.
The Sharks will be hosting a
Christmas tournament of their
own this year, scheduled for De-
cember 26 through 28, and
dubbed the Gulf County Classic.
Eight teams will be partici-
pating in the holiday games, in-
cluding Wewahitchka, Apalachi-
cola, Panama City Christian,
Pensacola Catholic, Chattahooch-
ee, Freeport, Ponce de Leon and
Port St. Joe.
TOUGH SEASON AHEAD
Head coach Vern Eppinette,
said the Shaiks face a tough
schedule this year. "We face a
schedule of veterans in a season
we are re-building," he said.
The Sharks have seven foes
on their schedule this year who
are ranked in the top ten teams
of their respective divisions. One
of these teams, the Rutherford
Rams, has already shown how
tough they are, dumping the
Sharks 89-67 in their season
opener. Others, who are ranked,
include: Graceville, Blountstown,
Quincy Shanks [new to the
schedule this year], Marianna,
Havana and Malone.
Florida High was moved off
the list of opponents this year,
due to scheduling problems. The
game was replaced by Quincy
Sharks which had been moved
into the Sharks' district.
The Sharks will have a 23-
game schedule for the season, in
addition to two tournaments dur-
ing the Christmas season, as well
as the three tournaments leading
up to the state championship
contest.

MTI Has Made A Good Citizen


It seems like it happened only
yesterday, that Material Transfer,
Incorporated first turned dirt for
their installation here in Port St.
Joe, 10 years ago. The organiza-
tion shipped its first 100-carload
train of coal daily to Seminole
Electric power generating plant in
1982 and has been at it ever
since.
Plant manager, Tommy Pitts
told the Rotary Club last Thurs-
day at their meeting, "Our direc-
tors said when 'this plant an-
nounced it was coming to Port St
Joe that they would be good
neighbors and become a part of
the community. I feel they have
kept that commitment"
Pitts was the first employee
hired by the firm, being hired as
manager in 1982. Now, the local
plant employs 14 people and Pitts
said, "Every one one of those 14
employees was a Port St. Joe or
Gulf County resident when he
was hired. The firm has, indeed,
furnished new job opportunities
to local people."
In addition Pitts said the
plant's operation has required the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad to
employ "at least 10" additional
employees to handle the business
the coal handling operation sends
over their lines to Palatka.
0 During the past 10 years, the
plant has received by barge and
shipped over rail some 22 million
tons of coal to the Seminole
plant That amounts to a 100-car
train going out of Port St. Joe eve-
ry day, seven days a week, for 10
years.
Pitts said both the plant and


the railroad have built facilities to
handle about three times that
traffic over the years in case new
customers are attracted to the
service.
Pitts said that one point the
job had impressed on him was to
see all that coal coming through


Port St. Joe daily and have a han-
dle on the amount going to other
parts of the nation, then to realize
that this nation has a 500 year
reserve of coal in the ground at
the present rate of use.
Guest .of the club was Jim
Anders of Blountstown.

can be protected from freeze dam-
age by putting them in a garage
or on a porch. If it is not possible
to move them indoors, protect
root systems by pushing the con-
tainers together and apply a
mulch over the container.
Plants growing under trees or
eaves of a house usually have a
higher survival rate than those
grown in the open. This is be-
cause tree canopies or roof eaves
keep the radiant heat that has
built up in the plant and in the
ground during the day from es-
caping into the atmosphere at
night. The same principle can be
used to protect plants growing in
the open. The radiant heat stored
in the plant and ground can be
trapped by covering plants with
materials such as cloth, plastic or
paper. In order to trap the maxi-
mum amount of radiant heat, the
cover should extend all the way to
the ground. It is also important
that the covering be draped over
stakes that will prevent plant foli-
age from touching the cover. Foli-
age that comes in contact with
the cover is often injured because
of heat transfer from the foliage
to the colder cover. The cover
should be tied to prevent the
wind from blowing it off the
stakes.
Covering is not enough to
protect tender plants from freez-
ing temperatures which last
many hours. Eventually, the tem-
perature under the cover will
reach freezing and the plant will
be damaged. However, an electric
light bulb placed under the cover
will usually provide enough heat
to prevent the plant from freezing.
Remember to turn the light off
when the temperature outside the
cover rises above freezing. It is
also very important to remember
to remove the cover after sunrise.
If the cover is not removed, the
radiant heat from the sun
trapped under the cover can
reach temperatures which could
damage the plant.
If all fails and the plant freez-
es, replace it with a more cold tol-
erant species or grow that favorite
ornamental as a pot plant which
can be moved indoors those few
cold days we have in Florida.

Bethelem A "Small Little Town" Before Saviour Was Born


"0 little town of Bethlehem,
how still we see thee lie..."
Bethleheml The very word
calls to mind an image of verdant
pastures and sheep grazing un-
der shepherds' watchful eyes...
dusty streets trod by donkeys la-
den with water jugs... and white-
washed dwellings clustered about
the village well.
Here it was that Ruth gleaned
barley in the fields belonging to
Boaz. It was here that the young
David tended his father's sheep
and where he was anointed king
of Israel.
In the time of Jesus, Bethle-
hem was just a small village in


the province of Judea. Yet the
prophet Micah foresaw its future
eminence. Had he not prophe-
sied, "But though, Bethlehem
Ephratah, though be little among

sands of pilgrims will descend
upon the town where the Savior
was born.
But, instead of a humble
stable, they will find a basilica
built over the cave where Mary
and Joseph are said to have
found shelter. A silver star marks
the exact spot where Jesus is be-
lieved to have been born. Fifteen
lamps surround it, donated by
various Christian communities,
demonstrating that here, in the
land of Jesus' birth, differences
fall away before a common faith.
Most pilgrims to the 'Holy
Land will also travel to Galilee,
where .the town of Nazareth lies.
Although the distance between
the towns is short by today's
standards, in the .time of Mary
and Joseph, the journey must
have been a hardship for them -
especially for the young woman,
heavy with child. As it was, Jews
resented the census greatly; it
was a humiliating reminder of
their subservience to Rome.
When Jesus lived in Naza-
reth, the countryside was com-
posed of wooded hills, each with
its little plain. Galilee was one of
the most beautiful of the provinc-
es. In fact, Galileans were sus-
pected of being too easygoing and
not strict enough in observing the
laws; perhaps, this was attributed
to their pleasant surroundings.
Here, in Nazareth, the grow-
ing Jesus would become familiar
with such commonplace sights as
the fig trees, the mustard plants,
and fields of grain, all of which, he
would draw upon later in his par-
ables.

Since it was the practice for
sons to follow in his father's
trade, undoubtedly Joseph
trained the young Jesus to be a
carpenter, like himself. He proba-
bly taught Jesus the Sh'ma:
"Here, 0 Israel, The Lord our God
is One lord; and you shall love
the Lord your God with all your
heart, and with all your. soil and
with all your might."
As the Bible reveals, Mary
and Joseph were devout Jews,
following the traditions of their
ancestors. In accordance with
Jewish custom, they traveled to
Jerusalem every year at the Feast
of the Passover.
What an impression that city
must have made on the young Je-
sus! It was the holy city to all be-
lieving Jews, the city that God
Himself had chosen as the place
for His worship. Here was the
Temple, the center of Jewish tra-
dition. The psalmist describes the
feelings of pilgrims as they went
up to the Temple:
"I was glad when they said
unto me, Let us go into the house
of the Lord.
Our feet shall stand within


thy gates, 0 Jerusalem.
Jerusalem is builded as a city
that is compact together;
Whither the tribes go up, the
tribes of the Lord, unto the testi-
mony of Israel, to give thanks
unto the name of the Lord.
For there are set thrones of
judgement, the thrones of the
house of David."
Today, only the Western Wall,
the Wailing Wall, remains of the
Temple. But, visitors can still see
the pool of Siloam, where the
blind man washed his eyes to re-
gain his sight, as Jesus told him
to do. And, from the Mount of
Olives, travelers can look down
upon the Holy City, just as Jesus
did.
Although Nazareth is no long-
er the humble village it must
have been when Jesus lived
there, its narrow, roofed streets
and colorful marketplace evoke
Biblical times, and today's Galile-
ans still harvest their wheat in
much the same manner of their
ancestors. Along the shores of the
Sea of Galilee, fishermen still cast
their nets into the lake, just as
Peter, Andrew, James and John
must have done.

*Severe driving conditions,
most people are surprised to
learn, include the frequent
idling that occurs in stop-and-go
driving in heavy traffic. It calls
for more-frequent changes of

*Periodic car washing is impor-
tant to help preserve the vehi-

posure to acid rain will eventu-
ally hurt paint finish.
*If a new battery seems to be
wearing down before it should,
the problem may be a faulty
voltage regulator causing it to
be undercharged. Also, check
cable connections for signs of
corrosion.

THE STAR PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, DEC. 12, 1991


News from Wewahitchka Elementary
By Linda Whitfield


Star Student of the Week
Kenny Maddox, the 11-year-
old son of Teresa and Richard
Maddox, is the star student of the
week. Kenny is in the sixth grade
homeroom of Mrs. Lori Price.
Kenny's favorite subject in school
is science "because we do experi-
ments." It is not surprising then
that he wants to be a scientist
when he grows up.
Kenny's favorite song is the
F.S.U. Fight Song. His favorite
book is The Black Stallion Re-
turns.
Kenny says this about him-
self: "School is o.k. I like science
because we do experiments. It's a
lot of fun. I like playing the piano,
riding my bike and riding my
skateboard. I like to play with
Justin Allen. I admire my dad."
Kenny's homeroom teacher,
Lori Price, had this to say about
him: "Kenny is well rounded,


Gant Participates
In Band Clinic
Elitha Gant, a senior at Port
St. Joe High School, participated
in the Tri-State Honor Band clinic
and concert which was held in
Tallahassee December 5-8.
High school students were se-
lected from Florida, Georgia, and
Alabama to attend the clinics.
Nationally known conductors
leading the students during con-
certs held Sunday afternoon in
the Ruby Diamond Auditorium on
FSU campus were Michael Haith-
cock, Baylor University; Tim Top-
olewski, Crane School of Music;
Mark Kelly, Bowling Green State
University. James Croft, who is
the Dean of Music at FSU and his
staff, hosted the four-day event.
The students received in-
struction during the clinic from
these and other instructors in
music, as well as their band di-
rectors attending seminars fea-
turing the clinicians.
Elitha is the daughter of Mr.


hard working, mannerly, an ex-
cellent student, and has great po-
tential." I'll add that he has a cap-
tivating smile, too!"

Be Sure Lights,


Decorations, Safe

Defective or Unsafe Decorations
Can Result In Holiday Tragedy


Each year, many consumers
use decorative lighting and color-
ful adornments to brighten
homes during winter holidays.
Glowing lights and candles, plas-
tic and natural holiday trees and
other ornaments are a common
sight during this time of year.
But, holiday celebrations can
result in tragedy if unsafe decora-
tions and lighting are used or if
safe decorations are used improp-
erly.
In Florida, 97 fires have been
connected with the use of decora-
tive holiday trees since 1983, ac-
cording to a report by the State
Fire Marshal's office. The fires
have caused more than $1 million
worth of property damage and
have resulted in 11 civilian
deaths.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Servic-
es urges consumers to use safe
decorations to help reduce injury
and property loss. Before decorat-
ing, consumers should:
*Read instructions carefully
for all lighting and decorations to,
ensure proper usage. .. .
*Use lightbulbs and strings of
miniature lights that have the
Underwriters Laboratory (U.L.)
seal of approval.
*Check all lighting for loose
connections, broken or cracked
sockets and frayed or bare wires.
*Use indoor lighting only for
indoor purposes and outdoor
lighting for outdoor purposes.
*Supervise the lighting of all
candles.
*Keep candles in a location
where they cannot be knocked
down or blown over and keep
children, animals and other flam-
mable materials away from open
flames.
*Never use tinsel or tree orna-
ments that contain lead; children
may eat them.
*Never use candles on any
decorative tree, and keep trees
away from all open flames.
*Make sure decorative trees
are fresh and not dry and brittle;

Card of Thanks
Our sincere appreciation and
love goes out to our friends and
relatives who have been so con-
cerned about our family during
the illness of our loved one. The
cards, prayers, calls, visits and
many acts of kindness will never
be forgotten. May God bless each
of you.

Vertis Hysmith Brings in
8-Inch Dinosaur Tooth
One of the things that makes
our day so interesting and unpre-
dictable is wondering what the
students will bring to share. To-
day was about perfect in that re-
spect. Vertis Hysmith, a third
grader, brought in an eight-inch
dinosaur tooth that a friend of his
father found in Texas. It appeared
to he the tooth of a herbivore and
by the looks of the plaque, never
saw a toothbrush! I didn't have
the scales to weigh it, but it was
at least five pounds and it was at-
tached to the gums which were of
course fossilized too. As big as
the tooth was, we would have
hated to be chased by the dino-
saur. (Of course, we know people
were not alive at the time of dino-
.saurs.) Vertis is the son of Danny
and Evon Hysmith.

Interval Cooking
Increases Bacteria

Interrupted cooking increases
the possibility of bacterial growth.
The turkey may be heated
enough to activate bacteria but
not long enough to kill them. If
you want to save some time and/
or work, cook and carve, the tur-
key a day or two before you plan
to serve It, then store it in the
refrigerator for reheating in a
microwave or conventional oven
on the big day. Make sure you get
the turkey to at least 165 degrees
F. when you reheat it because
adequate reheating is critical for
safety.

Minnie H. Johnson


New FmHA

Administrator

Minnie H. Johnson has been
named Farmers Home Adminis-
tration (FmHA) Supervisor for the
Blountstown Coupty office. The
appointment was made by Jim
Cherry, State Director of FmHA,
which is headquartered in
Gainesville.
Johnson is a native of Tifton,
Georgia, and moved to Florida in
1950. She graduated from Chipo-
la Junior College, and has attend-
ed FAMU and the University of
Florida, College of Agriculture.
Johnson joined Farmers Home
Administration in 1964 as a
County Office Clerk in Marianna.
She became Assistant County Su-
pervisor in that office in 1978,
where she served until coming to
the Blountstown County Office.
Johnson is married and lives
in Kinard with her husband, Rod-
ney. They have two sons and
three grandchildren. Johnson en-
joys fishing and snow skiing, and
she and her husband make an
annual trip to Colorado to ski.
FmHA is the principal credit
agency of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. As County Supervis-
or, Johnson will have responsibil-
ity for managing FmHA's single
family housing and farm loan ac-
tivity in Calhoun, Gulf and Liber-
ty counties.
In the 1990 fiscal year, the
office processed approximately
$2.2 million in farm and rural
housing loan. The office currently
services approximately 350 farm
and housing borrowers.


Ornaments Are Fun


to Make and Decorate


Children love making orna-
ments at Christmas time -
here's an easy recipe for bread
dough ornaments that they can
help make and then decorate:
Mix 4 cups of flour and 1 cup
of salt in a bowl, using a wooden
spoon or rubber spatula. Add 1
1/2 cups of water slowly, mixing
as you pour. You may need more
water, depending on the humidi-
ty, but keep the dough stiff for
best results.
Knead dough for 10 minutes;
when texture is soft and smooth,
it will be ready for cutting.
Have the youngsters shape
the ornaments with cookie cut-
ters, inserting hooks into the
dough at this time.


Bake dough in a 3250 to 350*
oven and no hotter. The orna-
ments should be rigid when re-
moved from the oven.
Allow them to cool and let the
kids take over, decorating them
with poster paint or tempera.
They can also sprinkle them with
cake decorations, using regular
white glue.
To keep the finished orna-
ments looking pretty longer,
spray them with an acrylic gloss;
this will also give them a nice
shine.
Hang the ornaments on the
Christmas tree for all to admire,
or have the youngsters given
them as gifts.
