with 1,000 Friends able to intervene, but it also saved Gulf
County at least $10,000 in legal fees.
DCA IN ACT OF DISMISSING
Moore said the paperwork is currently making the circuit
among the concerned parties for agreement, with DCA initiating
an order to dismiss the hearing. Moore said 1,000 Friends
agreed to drop all objections if the opposing parties in Gulf
County would agree to be responsible for their own legal fees.
"Since Gulf County has only a few hundred dollars involved, as
opposed to thousands it could owe with a, full-blown hearing,

they immediately agreed to the stipulation," Moore said.
Moore said the County has signed off on the agreement,
which is currently making the rounds of property owners and St.
Joe Forest Products Company for their signatures. 'The docu-
ment should be signed, sealed, and delivered by next week,"
Moore continued.
ALLOWED TO INTERVENE
Moore said the agreement has been over a year in coming.
About this time last year, the Department of Community Affairs
negotiated an agreement with Gulf County to approve its Com-
prehensive Plan. The main point of agreement was that DCA and
the County agreed to a housing density on St. Joseph Peninsula
and Indian Pass, which both parties could live with. The agree-
ment allowed a density of three homes per acre on the Gulf side
along the Peninsula and two homes per acre on the Bay side and
on the Shores of Indian Lagoon.
1,000 Friends, which has attended, or had representatives
present at only one of Gulf County's public hearings, was not
present at the agreement hearing in January, but filed a request
for an Administrative Hearing just before DCA gave its final ap-
proval to the Plan.
1,000 Friends wanted a density requirement along the coast
of one home per 10 acres and had negotiated down to one home
for every five acres. They also wanted a 600 foot buffer zone bor-
dering wetlands, which St. Joe Forest Products objected to. With

Drowning Victim, Missing


Wewahitchka Greets Santa Claus
S- -- Residents of Wewahitchka turned out en masse to wel-
Scome Santa Claus to the small city in a Christmas parade
which was anything BUT small. The parade lasted for near-
ly an hour, as it made its way north on Main Street with
floats, marching groups, the Wewa High School band riding
on a trailer, clowns, the Shriners and marching representa-
P tives of the five services.
The parade had as its honored guests-other than San-
ta Claus-representatives from the armed services at the
head of the marching throng.
-.After the parade, a ceremony was held to pay special
tribute to members of the armed services. Just at dark, a
tree lighting ceremony was held, in which the lights on the
.' -City Christmas tree, floating in Lake Alice, was officially lit
up for the Christmas season.
S Float winners in the non-profit division were: First,
United Pentecostal Church; second, West Florida Medical
Center; third, Westside Baptist church.
Winners in the commercial division were: first. Gulf
Coast Coop; second. St. Joseph Telephone and Telegraph
Company.
The event was sponsored by the Wewahitchka Chamber
of Commerce, which expressed a special thanks to Hub
Norris and the staff of Gulf Coast Electric Coop, for their
.. help with the tree lighting ceremony.


by an old outboard motor. "Ap-
parently, he attempted to put
gasoline in the tank on top of the
motor, when the boat evidently
skidded sideways, or dipped side-
ways, causing him to fall
overboard," he said.
The boat was found floating
and empty near the Gulf County
landing and a floating gas can
was found in the water nearby. A
.22 rifle was found inside the
boat.
"Nobody saw Shoemaker fish-
ing in the area, or fall' from the
boat, but we have to- assume he
has drowned, according to the ev-
idence," Harrison said.
A search operation is still in
progress involving personnel from
the Game Commission, the Ma-
rine Patrol, the'Sheriffs Depart-
ment and the Gulf County Search
and Rescue Squad.

Gulf County received about the nicest Christmas present it
could receive this past week in the form of a surprise move by
the 1,000 Friends of Florida. 1,000 Friends notified County At-
torney Bob Moore they were dropping their request for an Ad-
ministrative Iearing on the articles included in Gulfs Compre-
hensive Plan negotiated settlement with- the Department of

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 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 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 deliv-
ered. 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 be-
hold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all people. For unto you is bornm 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 mul-
titude of the heavenly host praising God and say-
ing, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth
peace, good will to men.
And it came to pass as the angels were gone
away from them into heaven, the shepherds said
one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethle-
hem, and see this thing which has 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 in a manger. And
when they had seen it, they made known abroad
the .saying which was told.them concerning this
child. Amd 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,
glorifying and praising God for all the things that
they had heard and seen, as it was told unto
them.-

I'd forgotten. Leon went over
the cliff first. I reached out as
commanded and grabbed what
turned out to be the back of
Dave's coat. He pulls up in mid
air.
'You guys all right?" Leon
tightened his grip on my arm.


We're on the side of a moun-
tain. Cold! Lost! It's dark! My old-
er brother is holding onto me. I'm
hanging on with about two fin-
gers to my little brother's Jacket.
How come Fm always in the mid-

Dave turned his head toward
me, "Thanks. Boy, I'd like to try
this hill in the daylight."
I looked up toward Leon. He
didn't have to reach out.........
We felt our way along the side
of the mountain 't41 we found a
place that wasn't so steep. We
eased to the bottom.
"I've never been so.cold."

I peered over at David. Now,

"Listen," I could sense a
change in Leon's voice with just
that one word. More grown up,
you know, an experienced voice,
"and understand this real well,"
,he wasn't yelling, he didn't grab
either of us like he sometimes
did. This was an even voice, rock
steady. It sounded like....... like

I jumped to my feet, and fair-

frontieranan -If he'd ever been
lost. "No, sir, I haven't," replied
Davy in that big, booming voice
ringing with confidence, "but I
was bewildered one time for three
days."
We stopped at the top of the
next peak where we could, of
course, see nothing. The snow
was falling again. "Hey, Leon,
maybe we're not lost, just bewil-
dered."
Leon was studying the. sky, I
think in search of the north star.
'We're lost....... but we've got to
have faith." Maybe he was, pray-

We stumbled down the hill
and struggled up the next. Every-
thing looked the same now. Lost
is about the absolute .most worst

My Most Prized


Christmas Gift
The Christmas Season has not always been a time of cheer and
happiness for me. One reason is our family has had some rather
bleak Christmases during my childhood. Another reason is that my
mother always taught her children to think of others who had less
than we, especially at Christmas.
The main reason we had some rather frugal Christmases was
the fact that daddy was extremely sick for about the last 10 years of
his life. Medical care then, as it is now, was expensive, even with
hospital insurance. Add to that the fact he wasn't working when he
was in and out of hospitals and there were nine children in our
family and you can see why Christmas was a rather depressing
time of th6 year at the Campbell home.
But it was during this time, believe it or not, that I received my
most prized and memorable Christmas gift. Ironic as it may seem, it
was at thmetime of the most crucial financial crisis our family had
yet experienced.
It was Christmas, 1956 and daddy was in the hospital in New
Orleans where he underwent aserious operation and extensive test.
Mother and some of the older children were staying in New Orleans
(they would rotate with mother staying there most of the time) and
that expense only lowered our family cash flow. I was a senior in
high school and one sister, Rachel, was four years behind me. The
rest of the children were older.
My mother Was an extremely religious woman and Christmas
was special to her. She made do with very little, but she made sure
that Christmas was special to her family, too. She made many
Christmas days plentiful with very little.
Christmas, 1956, however, was different. There was nothing to
do anything with. Besides that, mother was spending most of her
time with daddy in New Orleans and didn't have time to do any
Christmas shopping if there had been money to do it with. Needless
to say, we were not expecting much, but we received plenty, and it
came in an envelope to each of us. Inside was this poem.
TO OUR CHILDREN
Our hearts are deeply saddened,
Because our funds are low.
And we can't make hearts brighter
Along with Christmas glow.
We have no gifts to offer now,
Except a love that's true.
Believe us when we'tell you that
We're awfully glad you're you.
You make us, oh, so happy,
To have you as our own.
Now we're not just a kiddin',
You're the center of our throne.
We'll not complain of where we stand,
Because we know you're near.
For you have been our helping hand,
And kept back many a tear.
So, with this little poem,
Accept our gift of love, .
And be assured wherever you go
"-!Yo'ffeiwatdfiedoverfrom above. ,.,

DECEMBER 25, 1956
My most prized Christmas gift was a small piece of stationery
and a few minutes spent at an old Royal typewriter. It was gar-
nished with lots of love. A mother's love. '

Keep Money In Gulf
Dear Editor:
Two years ago, we built a
house on Cape San Bias Peninsu-
la. We have been visiting Gulf
County and vacationing here for
the last 10 years and have gotten
to know many of the county's citi-
zens, especially the merchants.
One of our objectives was to
keep our money in Gulf County.
We instructed our builder to pur-
chase building materials in Gulf
County when possible. We have
always used service people from
the Gulf County area.
When we visit Gulf County, if
it be on the weekend or for long-
er, we buy our food at one of Port
St. Joe's three groceries. We re-
cently purchased our first boat
from the dealership in Port St.
Joe.
Although we live in Atlanta
and are part-timers to Gulf
County, we will continue to sup-
port Gulf County merchants. We
are going to keep our money in
Gulf County, not only to help our
friends of the county, but, our
purchases in the county helps
the county tax base in the long
run.
Sincerely,
Don & Louise Hudgins
[Ed. Note: We in Gulf County
thank you.]

Stone FromPagel Obituary.....


their move to bow out of the Hearing as an opposing party, leav-
ing no registered opposition to Gulfs Plan, it will now be ap-
proved without objection, as negotiated back in January.
St. Joe Forest Products Company had opposed 1,000
Friends' intervention from the very outset of the Plan prepara-
tion, claiming they had no chapter or members in Gulf County
and therefore had no legal right to intervene in County negotia-
tions.
NO MORE CHANGES CAN BE MADE
Moore said that with the agreement being sent around for
ratification, no more changes can be made in the Plan until after
It is adopted. "It is fairly easy to make changes then through the
amendment procedure built into the agreement, but any change
made will only affect the property of the petitioner and not the
Plan as a whole. There is a big difference and far more protection
for the property owner here," Moore said.
All changes in the Plan will be dealt with by local officials in
the future.
Pointing to a storage box filled with papers relative to the
Plan and its negotiations over the years, Moore said, "At least

taken another step." David's little
legs had had a work out. To tell
you the truth, I was all done in
myself. "Leon, is it Christmas
morning yet?"
"I'm not sure. It's late though.
Mother will be worried to death."
.Crazy Leon! WE'RE lost and
he's thinking about Mother. I had
more more pertinent thoughts.
"Do ya'll reckon Dad will whip us.
'for-a-while' over this one.'
"I just hope he gets a chance
to.",
'We're going to be all right."
Leon was beginning to. sound like
a broken record.."This will be a.
Christmas we'll never forget."-
That Western Flyer sure,
didn't seem as important as' it did ''
this morning. Home and "family
and friends get more precious
when you get as far away from
them as we were right now.
We sat in silence for quite
some time, each lost in his
thoughts.
"Leon," you could tell David
had been studying on something,
"why do people who don't believe
in Jesus .put up. Christmas
trees?"
I fell asleep pondering. that
one. I didn't dream of sugar
plums and bicycles 'either. I.
dreamed of that big fireplace and
the warmth of our living room.
The cold and the wind woke me
up once .......... I looked at Leon,
who had an arm around each of
us and who had done all he could
do on this "trip." David's head
was resting on my shoulder. You
can't beat Godl He's given me two
great gifts one' of them five
years before I was born.
I drifted back to sleep, won-
dering what the paper would say
about three brothers freezing to
death on Christma-
"Boys."
My Father's voice. We juinped
bolt upright. The light from his
lantern filled that run down
shack.
"Daddy!" We attacked '.him
with hugs. And you're not going
to believe this as he picked
Leon up, I saw a tear mixed with
the relief in his eyes.
"How did you ever find us?"
Dumb question. I saw the
snow up to his knees, I saw the


rip in his new winter coat, I saw
the sweatpn his temples on a 230
night, I 'saw' the dried blood on
, his hands from the briars. He
found us because he'd been look-
ing behind every rock, every tree,
every half cabin..........
You ask Leon or David .Mark
or me about Christmas. We'll tell
you about a Father who never
gives up.........
Respectfully,

final stanza, scoring 22 and hold-
ing the Sharks to only 15.
The final score had Lincoln

never allowed Chipley to take the
lead during the rest of their game
in the second round of play.
The Sharks started relaxing
during the final period of the
game and let their lead erode to
only a six-point margin before Ja-
son Maxwell got a hot hand on


his three-point shot, to hold the
Tiger attack at bay. A run in the
final minutes of the last period
had Chipley once again charging
ahead, cutting the Sharks' lead to
only six points before Maxwell hit
on successive three-pointers and
Arion Nickson added a pair of
jumpers and two free throws to
turn the game around for a last
time.
The final score was: Sharks

OVERCOMING
DENTURE "GAGGING"


The most common problem
with new dentures is gagging.
The presence of this foreign
body (the denture) causes an in-
creased flow of saliva which
may cause a person to gag. A
lozenge sucked continuously for
the first few days will increase
the rate of swallowing and thus
rid of the extra saliva. Within a
few days, the body will gradually
adjust to the new dentures.
The upper denture is held in
place by adhesion and cohesion,
(suction). The back of the palate
must be covered (sealed) for the
denture to fit properly. Unfortu-
nately, some patients have diffi-
culty adjusting to the back end
of the denture. They gag, feel


uncomfortable and often plead
with the dentist to shorten the
denture. There is little the den-
tist can do. If he were to shorten
the denture, the seal would be
lost and the denture would no
longer fit. Lozenges are useful,
but it is up to the denture-wearer
to adjust to the new environ-
ment. It might help to know that
the full upper denture is almost
always successful. But you must
give your body a few days to get
used to it.

Tribute to Mrs. Peak


"Mrs. Peak was a nice kind
lady who was nice to the children
and always had a smile on her
face. I loved her a lot," Cerrelle
Hanes.
'The way that I remember
Mrs. Peak is when she brought
us the bread and how she had
that happy smile on her face.
Mrs. Peak was very nice and kind
and she was a loving person. She
loved us very much. It was very
sad when she died," Greg Carter.
"Mrs. Peak was kind to the
kids. She was like my aunt. She
died last night. I liked her a lot.
My Granny knew her. My Mom
liked her a lot tool She worked in
the school lunchroom," Tonya
Hall.
"Mrs. Peak always had a
smile on her face. She was nice
and she made me smile too. My
Christmas wish is that she has a
good time in Heaven," John Rob-
ert Beatty.


Farewell Mrs. Peak
The WES faculty, staff, and
students join with Mrs. Peak's
family in mourning this faithful
member of our staff. She was a
kind, hard working woman who
made life better for those around
her. We will miss her.
POPS Field Trip to Fox
TV Station and WPAP
With the help of chaperones
Debbie Kemp, Marilyn Witten,
Sondra Dickens, and POPS spon-
sor,, Terri Weimorts, the POPS
members had a delightful tour of
the facilities of Fox and WPAP tel-
evision and radio stations. After-
wards the students enjoyed lunch
at McDonalds.
Discrimination Charge Made
When Linda Whitfield invited
all the female members of our
staff to an 'all girl Christmas par-
ty' at her house last Friday night,
staff member Bill Carr said he
thought discrimination had taken
place. Maybe so, but we sure had


a good time.
Christmas Crafts Galore
Sandwiched in between read-
ing. writing and 'rith'metic, the
teachers at WES have given the
children plenty of opportunities
to be creative this holiday. Every-
one you see had hot glue burns,
sequins on their noses, and pipe
cleaners in their teeth. Bah, hum-
bugl Not around here.

The pizza passport prizes
have been awarded. All students
selling six or more participated in
a drawing with $50.00 as the big

Mistletoe, A X-mas Favoite


IsA Bad


Parasite
Mistletoe, which symbolizes
yuletide friendship, is a destruc-
tive pest of hardwood trees. This
plant is close to a true parasite,
living primarily off a host tree's
bark and sap.
Mistletoe is almost as much a
part of the holiday season as hol-
ly, wreaths and Christmas trees.
But, interest in mistletoe began
long before the birth of Christian-
ity. Because of its unusual
growth habit, mistletoe has been
credited with strange and mystic
powers down through the ages.
Many ancient people, from the
Druids to early American Indians,
used this plant.
In times past, pregnant wom-
en made a mistletoe tea, which
they drank before childbirth. It
has even been suggested that









mistletoe might be used in treat-
ing hypertension. But, the most
familiar practice associated with
the unusual plant, kissing under
the mistletoe, dates back to Norse
mythology. My information on
this tradition, as well as problems
associated with mistletoe, was
provided by the Forestry Depart-
ment of the University of Florida.
According to Norse mytholo-
gy, a god named Balder (ball-dur)
was shot by a mistletoe arrow. In
their anger, the other gods turned
mistletoe into a parasite. Its ber-
ries symbolized tears. Later,
when the gods and human were
on good terms again, mistletoe
became a symbol of harmony.
Mistletoe hanging in a doorway
indicated a peaceful house. The
tradition of kissing under the
mistletoe signified friendship.
Regardless of its romantic
symbolism, mistletoe is a parasit-
ic plant, which commonly infests
hardwood trees, such as oak and
pecan. Mistletoe does manufac-
ture a small amount of food for it-
self, but, for the most part, it
feeds off other plants by rooting
into the bark and living wood.
Mistletoe can cut off the flow of
sap from the trunk to infested
branches of a host tree. When
this happens, whole limbs die. In
addition to blocking sap flow,
mistletoe reduces food production
by shading out the leaves of the
host tree. Naturally, a weakened
tree also becomes susceptible to
other problems fungi, diseases,
and insects. Thus, a mistletoe in-
festation may result in the even-
tual death of an entire tree.
Mistletoe produces seeds,
which can be spread by wind,
birds, and even people. These
seeds come out around Christ-
mas time. And since many people

Extension Notes
By
Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service


harvest mistletoe during the holi-
day season, they often do a lot to
help the parasite spread.
Keeping mistletoe out of your
trees can be a real problem. As I
pointed out, its seeds can be
spread easily. And, there's no
spray you can use to prevent or
eliminate a mistletoe infestation.
In the early stages, before limbs
have started to die, you can cut
the mistletoe away. In cases of
heavy infestation, you may want
to prune off entire limbs. But,
pruning is certainly not a .erma-
Uent control measure. If you find
mistletoe growing on one branch
of a tree, the parasite's seeds are
almost certainly germinating on
other limbs, as well. So, since
there are no methods of preven-
tion or cure, your best bet is try
to minimize the chances of mis-
tletoe attach. You can do this by
carefully inspecting new trees be-
fore introducing them to your
home landscape.

2. Stick with the truth, even
if it makes you look or feel bad.
Falsehoods are like wandering
ghosts.
3. Forgive your enemies as
part of the price you pay for the
privilege of being forgiven. Realize
you are sometimes a pain in the
neck yourself. ,
4. Walk. Get lots of air and
sunshine, and occasionally get
some rain or snow in your face,
some dirt on your hands.
5. Talk through your troubles
and mistakes with someone you
trust and your dreams, too.
6. Don't underestimate the
ability of God to straighten out a
situation even when you can't,
and give God a little time


7. Discriminate among your,
fears. Learn to tell which ones are
useful and which ones are de-
structive.
8. Remember that the ulti-'
mate death rate is still 100 per-
cent. You would be getting short-
changed if everyone got to die and
you didn't.
9. When you can't sleep, say
"Aha! here's a chance for a little
privacy and creative thinking. All
day I've been too busy to pray,
and now I can get around to
thanking God."
10. Fall in love with life -
with children, older people, mid-:
die-agers, sports cars, the thea-:
ter, music, books, cities, hills, the:
sea, the Bible with everything
except money.

Port St. Joe Families Needed to Host Foreign Students


Foreign high school students
will be arriving soon into the Port
St. Joe area for homestays, and
the sponsoring organization ur-
gently needs a few more local
host families for their second se-
mester program.
According to Pacific Intercul-


tural Exchange (P.I.E.) Executive
Director, John Doty, the students
are all between the ages of 15 and
18 years, have their own spend-
ing money, are fully insured and
are anxious to share their cultu-
ral experiences with their new
American families. P.I.E. current-
ly has programs to match almost
every family's needs, ranging in


academic year, where the stu-
dents attend local high schools.
P.I.E. representatives match
students with host families by
finding common interests and
lifestyles through an informal in-
home meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review stu-
dent applications and select the
"perfect match". As there are no

fit a student into just about any
situation, whether it be a single
parent, a childless couple, a re-
tired couple or a large family.
For the upcoming programs,
P.I.E. has students from Spain,
Germany, Yugoslavia, Italy, Ar-
gentina, Brazil, Colombia, New
Zealand, France and many other
,countries. P.I.E. is a non-profit


el ngth from a semester to a full typical host families, P.I.E. can educational organization that has

sponsored more than 18,000 stu-
dents from 18 countries since its
founding in 1975.
Port St. Joe area families in-
terested in learning more about
student exchange or arranging for
a meeting may call P.I.E., toll-
free, at 1-800-245-6232. The
agency also has travel/study pro-
gram opportunities available for
American high school students.

The fourth graders became
Santa's elves last week when they
invited the first graders to their
classroom. When the young ones
arrived, the elves had prepared
everything they needed to make
angels, snowflakes, Christmas
cards, doves, and two kinds of
Santas.
The comradeship was a fan-
tastic sight to witness! It took
them two days, and a fun time
was had by alll
Mrs. Howell's fourth graders
presented a program called The
First Thanksgiving. The pilgrims.
came to America and found they
didn't know much about the
country, particularly that there
was not much food.
The Indians, led by Squanto
and Samerset taught them how
to grow the crops that they knew
of corn, squash, apples and
others. Thus, when all was done,
they gave thanks and shared
their meal together.
Ron Sterrett, the manager of
Silver Circle Skate Center in
Parker gave each student a free
admission and special rates cou-
pon to the Center.
This is greatly appreciated
and thanks to Ron and his staff.
Hol Hol Ho! This is what San-
ta appeared to be saying as he
was being painted on the sweat-
shirts of students in Winston
Wells' class.
With teacher Winston Wells
and aide Joyce Sweazy, Joseph
Lee and Johnny Taylor undertook
a building project. The boys con-
structed and built a gingerbread


house out of different kinds of
cookies and candies. Folks, these
looked like one could just walk in
and be comfortable they were
really built well.
The Hawk ,fourth, fifth, and
sixth grade POPS Club had a very
nice surprise for the teachers and
staff recently. They planned and
prepared a nice party in apprecia-
tion of teachers and staff. A great
big thank you to all the students
who helped.
Mrs. Howell's fourth graders
present their Christmas stories to
you.
The Christmas Party
One Christmas I went shop-
ping. I walked down the alley be-
cause it is a shorter way to the
house. I saw some homeless peo-
ple. I looked at them and they
were crying because they had no
food. I took them home for a
Christmas Party.
I walked down the alley be-
cause my brother said it was a
shorter way to the house.
The alley was very dirty.
There was a big building there but
all I saw were mice running out. I
was scared in the alley. It was
narrow and dirty.
The father of the homeless
people said; "Is this a special-
day?' I said, 'Yes, it is. Come on
let's go to my house. You can come
and celebrate Christmas with my'
family." The father agreed to come
celebrate with us. When they got
to my house, they took off their
coats and sat down. When I gave
them the food, they ate and ate
and ate. I felt good about inviting
them. And they were happy.
By Jenny Patterson


A Merry Christmas
for a Homeless Boy
Once upon a time, there lived
a very sad little boy. He was sad
because he didn't have a home.
He was very dirty. He didn't wear
shoes. No one even knew why he
was homeless.
One day I asked him what his
,name was. His name was Joey.
He said he was sad because it's
nearly Christmas and I don't have
a home. Then a good idea popped
in my head. I went home and I
took him with me. When I got
home Mom wanted to know who
he was and what he was doing
here. I told her he was a homeless
boy and I wanted to give him a
nice Christmas and mom said I
guess someone might adopt him.
Mom found him a home and he
lived happily ever after.
by Belle Shurrum
The Visit
I went to see Santa Claus at
the mall in Panama City. After I'
saw Santa, I went shopping with
my mom and I got some presents
,for my dad and my grandma.
Grandma was at my house wait-
ing for us to come back. When we
got back we all ate dinner together
and the next day we opened our
presents. Then my grandma had
to go home. She liked the presents
we gave her. She said she would
come back soon. She said bye.
by Anthony Crocker
The Man.
Once there was this man who
had one child.
He bought a tree and some or-
naments. And got a present for his
son. .And his next door neighbor
was poor. So one day the rich peo-
ple gave him some money so he
can buy some presents for his chil-
dren and some food for his family.
And then he was happy because
,,,his, children., were happy, of the
presents.

Best Christmas Smell?


What does Christmas smell
like? Evergreen? Bayberry?
Roasting chestnuts? Apple cinna-
mon cider?
The answers would be pre-
dictably diverse because our
sense of smell can be sentimen-
tal, says William Helm, a Univer-
sity of South Florida English pro-
fessor and holiday expert.
"Our sense of smell equals all
our other senses in evoking
moods," says Helm.
Actually, scientists have long
noted that some fragrances or
odors can evoke certain memories
and feelings. Some smells such
as lemons make people more
alert, while smells such as spiced
apples make them more relaxed.
No one knows if the smell of
spiced apples relaxes people be-
cause it reminds them of family
holidays and hot apple pie or if
there Is something inherent in
spiced-apple molecules that trig-
gers relaxation.
"Down through history the
sense of smell has been used to
evoke desired responses," says
Helm. "The use of incense, for ex-
ample, is not a new thing it
was used long before the birth of

Christ.
"One of the most popular gifts
at Christmas time is still per-
fume, bought for the purpose of
stimulating the sense of smell,
very often for a sexual response,"
adds Helm.
For many people, acknowl-
edges Heim, it is the evergreen
smell that reminds them of
Christmas. That is why decorat-
ing homes with live Christmas
trees is so popular.
"So this Christmas season, be
good to yourself," Helm says.
'Treat yourself to all the smells
and sounds the bring back happy
thoughts and memories of Christ-
mas.
"If the scents do nothing
more than make us feel good
about ourselves, that's nothing to
sniff at," says Heim.

Little Known Facts

About December...


We all know that it is the last
month of the year. And we all
know that Christmas falls during
this month. But here are some
other interesting facts about De-
cember that not everyone knows:
*National Roof-Over-Your-
Head Day falls on the first day of
December. The purpose of the
event is to draw attention to the
plight of the homeless across the
country.
*On December 6, 1865, the
Thirteenth Amendment to the
Constitution was ratified. It abol-
ished slavery in the U.S.
*This is Bingo's Birthday
Month. It is set aside to celebrate
the birth of the game in 1929.
*The Wright Brothers accom-
plished the first documented pow-
ered and controlled airplane flight


on December 17, 1903. Orville
was born in Dayton, Ohio, in
1871. He died in 1948. Wilbur
was born at Millville, Indiana, in
1867, and passed away in 1912.
*Are you an underdog? Then
December 18 is a day set aside
for you and all the unsung he-
roes.
*Remember the Louisiana
Purchase? On December 20,
1803, France turned more than a
million square miles over to the
U.S. The price? About $20 a
square mile.
*Why is December 21 Nation-
al Flashlight Day? Probably be-
cause it has the longest night of
the year.
*"God-Awful" Tie Day. What
is this? It's December 26, the day
after men receive those "different"
neckties.

SHoliday Greenery


Isn't Just for X-mas


Decorating for the holiday
season can challenge the talents
of -even the most creative family,
especially when they want their
home to display love and a warm
welcome to visiting relatives and
friends.
The holidays also mean lots
of entertaining. Whether for the
boss or Aunt Marsha, creating
Just the right decor for a festive,
happy occasion requires careful
thought and planning, but
shouldn't cost a fortune.
Nothing creates a feeling of
warmth better than live plants
potted in gaily colored containers.
Start at the front entry. It
should have a warm, inviting
look. Flank the entrance with
Grecian urns filled with red silk
poinsettias or pine boughs with
pine cones and red ribbons. A red
or green Christmas door mat with
matching macrame wreath com-


pletes the look.
As guests enter your home,
randomly placed terracotta plant-
ers in Christmas red or white,
potted with white poinsettias,
Christmas cactus or other festive
holiday plants, warmly welcome
them. Doors in the entry can fea-
ture either red or green Yuletide
Yarn macrame swags and match-
ing doorknob hangers.
Everyone wants to see the
Christmas tree. Imagine the sur-
prise and delight as your guests
view your tree, surrounded by
several gloss planters in alternat-
ing red, white and green, potted
with red or white poinsettias. The
look is breathtakingly
And don't forget the rest of
your home. The kitchen, dining
room, family room or great room
can feature planters in Christmas
red, white or green, filled with
holiday or live house plants.
Last but not least, while you
welcome and entertain friends in-
side, don't forget your backyard
guests. A bird feeder filled with
delicious seed will keep your
feathered friends fed and cozy
during the holidays and beyond.
Careful thought and planning
coupled with your creativity and
several containers, available at
lawn and garden, hardware, mass
merchandise and discount stores
nationwide, will make your home
the one family and friends re-
member warmly throughout the
holiday season.


Holiday Customs

*There is a spicy cookie called
"Lebkuchen" that German fami-
lies use to decorate their trees. It
can be made into various shapes,
and hung on branches adorned
with tinsel and lights.
*An old Spanish custom:
"Swinging in the sun." The chil-
dren take turns on swings that
have been set up in the middle of
town. They see who can go the
highest. What is the purpose?
They try and "lead the sun farther
north," in hopes for an early
spring.
*"Navidad" (Nah-vee-Dahd) Is
how they say "Christmas" in Mex-
ico. Friends gather for parades,
carrying small figures of the Holy
Family, and singing Christmas
carols.
