Sail After A Short,

The Sloop Providence set sail for Pensacola after a
seven day visit in St. Joseph Bay, participating in a doc-

The vessel's visit was the victim of the weather since
its arrival last Thursday afternoon. It was scheduled to
dock at Raffleld Fisheries and allow people of the com-
munity to go on board and Inspect the sloop. High winds
and heavy seas made it too dangerous for the boat to
venture into tight places, such as negotiating the draw-
. bridge. at. Highland View, so it had to anchor in Eagle
Harbor for its entire visit to the Port St. Joe area.
According to Harbormaster Billy Howell, who took the
Sloop under his wing while it was here, winds were too
high to even bring the boat to the paper mill docks. "The
wind would have beat it to death against the docks,"

Police Nab Cocaine Dealer
In Arrest of Calvin Johnson
$21,000 Worth of Cocaine Taken In Raid of Home
For the third week in a row,
the Port St Joe Police Depart-
ment have made a major arrest

crime in the City.
Police Chief Carl Richter said
this week the Department has
been successful, along with the

forcement and the Calhoun
County Sheriffs Department, in
arresting a major supplier of
crack cocaine in the Port St. Joe

cause the subject had so much
powder cocaine in his possession
and because of the conspiracy
angle," Chief Richter said. "We

The Department arrested Cal-
vin Johnson, 42, Friday evening
at his home at 238 Avenue C.
Johnson's dwelling was entered
when he was served with a
search warrant. Officers recov-
ered:an ounce of cocaine powder,
$9,000 in cash, property and a
1988 pick-up truck.
Chief Richter said he was in
the process of "cooking" a batch
of cocaine when the arrest was
The cocaine recovered had a
street value of $21,000.
Richter said several under-
cover purchases had been made
from Johnson, during the course
of the month-long investigation,
by different undercover officers.
'This is just one of about three
major dealers we have in the vi-
cinity. Were going to get them all
before we quit," Richter said.
Johnson is presently lodged
in the CCA facility in Bay County
as a federal inmate. He had first
appearance before Judge Larry
Supervisor of Schools Walter Wilder an-
nounced this week that a series of public for-
ums will be held in Gulf County to "feel out the
public reaction to a suggestion for changes to
the school system."
The changes were suggested by the School
Advisory Committee, which is currently at work
with the school administration and faculty to
work out ways in which the Gulf County
Schools can be improved.
'Their first suggestion is that we create a
middle school in the Port St. Joe area and that
we .convert the Highland View School into that
middle school," Wilder said. "Along with the
change it would be necessary to move the stu-
dents currently attending Highland View MEle-
mentary to Port St. Joe Elementary School,"
Wilder said. There are currently about 150 chil-
dren attending .the school.
Two different age groups have been suggest-
ed for the middle school, if it is created. One
would include sixth, seventh and eighth grad-
ers and the other would include only seventh
and eighth graders.
"We're going to give the people adequate op-
portunity to have input to this idea before we
handle it," the Supervisor said.
HEARING TIMES, LOCATIONS
The public forums will be held in three ses-
sions, in different locations of the County. The
first of the forums has been scheduled for to-
night [Thursday] in the Wewahitchka Elemen-
tary School at 7:00 p.m. Central time. The sec-
ond hearing will be conducted at the Highland
View Elementary School Monday evening begin-
ning at 7:00 p.m., Eastern time. The final hear-
ing will be conducted at the Port St. Joe Ele-
mentary School, Tuesday night at 7:00 p.m.
The decision to make Highland View a mid-
dle school has not yet been presented to the
School Board, nor has it been decided by any
official body. It is merely a suggestion by the
citizens' advisory group which is being brought
to the people for their opinion.
"All of this matter is very preliminary," Su-
perintendent Wilder said. "Come give us the
benefit of your feelings," he suggested.

Hot Dggity! We Get to Pay More Taxes
We now officially have the word, The middle

"might dream up to furnish a utopia for every-
-one in the United States and for all those peo-
ple we can transport to our borders.
We thought we had a little relief coming. Or,
:we should say we dreamed we might just possi-
:bly get some relief with the President's an-
-nounced program of installing a program of re-
Everyone knows that the biggest portion of
.taxes comes from the middle class. That's be-
cause there are so many of them. It's true, they
:earn the bulk of the money in circulation in the
United States. Even being in this envious posi-
tion, there is a limit to the largess of the largest
earning group in the United States.
President Clinton has now-announced what
we already expected, even while he was telling
-us the middle class would get tax relief. There
is no relief in sight. Actually, there is only more
of the same in sight, enlarged a bit. You can ex-'
pect to pay more taxes and get less for.them.
That was to be expected. We now have to
pay back those easy bucks we were tapping the
government till for in the past. It allowed us to
live in utopia then, but it will cause us all to
tighten our belts for years to come in the fu-
We hope Mr. Clinton spreads this burden
among the rich and the poor also. We don't ex-
pect the poor to pay the same rates as the mid-
dle class, but we do not expect them to get the,
same benefits as in the past from a population
segment which is straining to pay the bill.
The fuel which makes our system tick and
work so well, is the thought that if one works
hard, saves his money, is frugal with what he
spends, he can have the good life. That is an
impetus for people to work hard. If you remove
that possibility of seeing better times by work-
ing hard, you will discourage those who are
burning the midnight oil.
Already this is happening to a certain ex-
tent. People 'are refusing to work overtime sim-
ply because the bulk of what they earn is going
to pay taxes. Very little is accruing to their own
Another fly in k:he ointment is that firms are
being taxed and .regulated out of business.
True, some'are having problems with manage-
ment, but the numbers are many, many more
of firms being harassed by fees, permits, rules
and regulations and unnecessary require-
ments. We believe the government would be
better served if reasonable regulations would be
required of business and see that the stipula-
tions are met by everyone. In a situation like

Another Veteran Business Name Disappears
A sad day in Port St. Joe. Sad for a few peo-
ple; just another day for others.
For 56 years the Hurlbuts have had their
name on a business in downtown Port St. Joe.
Now, they are incapacitated and must remove
that name. A nephew is going to carry on a por-
tion of the business, but somehow it just isn't
Port St. Joe has had a number of names in
business here for years and had them disap-
pear when the families have dwindled and the
parents died or become too old and feeble to
carry on the business as usual.
There are some old names In the business
world still carrying on, however, but some are
under a new management. That word "new" is
relative because some of those "new" owners
have been active longer than the former owners
of the business were.
The Hurlbuts have operated dress shops,
5 and 10 stores, paint stores, fishing tackle,
hardware. They have been here a long time.
There was the Boyles family, whose business
disappeared with them. The Nedleys, the Eells,
the Lilius's, and others who don't come readily
About the only long-time business families
left in Port St. Joe are the Costin family, the
Raffields and J. Lamar Miller Agency. They
have been in business in Port St. Joe almost
since there has been a Port St. Joe.
Businesses which have been here a. long
time, now operating under new management
are St. Joe Furniture, Heilig Meyers [formerly
Danley's] The Star, Buzzett's. Drug [formerly
Miller's Drug Store], Campbell's Drug store [for-
merly Carver's Drug Store], Pate's Service Cen-,
ter and St. Joe Bar, all survivors of the 1930's.
There are others who have closed their
doors when the family operating them faded
away such as Schneiders, Gulf Hardware Com-
pany, to name a few.
Port St. Joe has been kind to family-
operated business over the past years. Possibly
the reason their number is waniiqg is because
not enough families wish to gotthrough the
hardships of.building a business in the present
business world. There are too many records to
be kept for state and federal government. Too
many restrictions and too many rules and reg-
ulations. It's no longer possible to just work
hard, keep reasonable records, pay your taxes
and your bills.
Of course there is a host of families still op-
erating businesses in Port St. Joe which started
in the early 40's or 50's which are still the
backbone of the local business community.

I remember when the week
after Valentine's could leave you
with a memory or two. Take for
instance, 1963. I was a sopho-
more in high' school, Just turned
14-and,. of-course, head over hills,
in love. Brenda Whitehead had
moved in from Rocky Mount,
North Carolina and I thought she
was soooo much prettier than
any of the girls I'd been looking at
for the past 10 or 12 years. Ricky
was going steady with Pam. I
think Yogi was just falling in love
with Nola Purcell. Buddy and La-
Renda were becoming an item
and Larry had been going with
Stsle Cozart for years.
'' Now, I'm not counting Rollin
Trull in there with us, He was the
b1est looking guy in our class by
far. And he had that black leather
Jacket and that big Harley-
Davidson.......... he didn't have to
send no Valentine cards.
Going steady was "in" in
1963. You must understand here,
with the. exception of Rollin,
didn't any of us have a clue about
what we were doing. It just all of

hour. You weren't going to get no

this. I wanted one that talked of.

card cost 59 cents. That was half

worth it. I wanted everything to
be "Just right."
I even asked-Leon about pre-

appropriate manner. "Well, the

, Maybe even a little difficulty
with being demonstrative.
BUT, I DEFINITELY want to
go on record as letting you know
that I don't think it could happen
to a more deserving person.
I'm talking about the Cham-
ber of Commerce "Outstanding
Citizen of the Year" award which
went to Mayor Frank Pate last
I've sat on that Commission
Board with Frank Pate for a num-
ber of years, and I know it can get
downright uncomfortable at
times. But Frank has never
squirmed in the 22-plus years he
has been Mayor. If things get
rough, he just grins, lets out that .
little chuckle, shifts his weight In
his well-worn chair and tackles
He's no Uncle Remus, but he'
usually comes up with a solution
to a problem which is acceptable
to everybody. Maybe everybody
isn't satisfied, but they can live
with the situation. He is a master,
of give and take.
Everyone is treated alike. The
man knows everyone between
here and Two Egg. ,And /they.,
know him. He'll do anything to
help anybody, whether they are
special favorites of his or not.
However, I have never seen any-
body who didn't get treated as
special favorites. ,
I take that back. I remember
one person who kept coming be-
fore the Board with agitating sug-
gestions that they were being
treated unfairly and making a
general' nuisance of themselves.
That went on for about a month
or two and finally Frank just had
to say, "--- ,. you have been
coming before the Board with this
same problem for .two. months
now. Nothing we do seems to
please you or be. like you want it.
If we do what you suggest, you
change your demands by the next
meeting. Why don't you just tell
us what you really want and let
us take care of it, or just don't
come back to this meeting any
more. You're wasting your time
and ours with all these petty grie-
vances you keep coming up with."
I swear, by all that's truthful.
He told.a person Just that and do
you know, suddenly their prob-
lem was solved?
But that was only once in 22
'THE MAYOR IS a hard bar-
gainer when it comes to the City's
money. There have been many
important looking people come
before the Board carrying their
brief cases with important sound-
ing titles, offering the City "deals
they couldn't refuse". But some-
how or other our country boy
Mayor from south Alabama, who
pumps gas and sells tires for a
living, has proved himself to be
more than a match when it
comes to getting the best deal for
I SHUDDER TO think how
much it would have cost the City
of Port St. Joe over the past 20
years, 'to operate the Wastewater
Treatment Plant, alone, if it had
not been for the mule-trading
sixth sense of Mayor Frank Pate.
Every time a new man moves
into the offices of EPA in Atlanta
or DER in Tallahassee, he seems
to delight in coming to this "back-
woods village" with the big city
disposal plant to show how much
he knows about waste water
treatment, how much Port St. Joe
seems to be polluting St. Joseph
Bay and just how many hundreds
of thousands of dollars he is able
to assess in fines if the City
doesn't make all the changes he
Well, the new fellow usually
runs into Frank Pate, who has
made it his purpose to learn
about these things over the last
20 years and is usually able to
teach the new expertt" a thing or
two about treating waste water.
And they usually like the
man, because he didn't threaten
or bluster as he dealt with them.
ON TOP OF ALL that, I have
found the man to be a totally
honest person. That alone, is rea-
son enough to make him "Out-
standing Citizen of the Year".

We are all faced with decisions that we must make each day.
S Some decisions are big and, fortunately, most are small. The deci-
sion to remove Shad from the heading of this column was mine
alone. I did it because I felt it was time for a change. (My older
brother really pressured me into it. but I told him I wouldn't say
that and I won't).
I now firid that change for the sake of change is not always the
best policy. There must be, in my opinion, a better reason to change
the course of something, other than change it just to change It.
Some wise and knowing person said it best when he uttered. "If it
ain't broke, don't try to fix it!"
Shad would look at it this way: If you had.a cow that was giving
enough milk to run the bucket over each morning and evening (for
you folks who never milked a cow, they must be milked morning
and evening) and the cream was about eight inches down in the
jug. you wouldn't change her feed and put her in another pasture to
feed for no reason at all, would you?
No, you wouldn't. And It's hard for me to type the heading for
this article because it doesn't seem right. When I en pn the paper to
review the article from time to time, I find myself flushed with sor-
row. not seeing Shad's name there in the heading. It's a feeling like

often times, begin to look alike.

Gulf County has a long and
proud tradition of supporting the
National Defense of the United
States. Many of the young men
and women of Gulf County will
enter into military service upon
completing high school. It is be-
cause of this dedication to duty
that I wish to bring to attention:
several ways in which the people
of Gulf County can let their voices

Soon after his Inauguration,
President Bill Clinton announced
his decision to lift the ban which
prohibits homosexuals from serv-

from his desire to remove what he

However you feel about this
issue, your elected officials will
not know unless you tell them.
You can state your position by
phoning the White House (202)

will bear the burden of your fail-

Although February is not a long month, it seems to be jam-
packed with work and fun. As the years progress, we seem to have
more and more "firsts" here at Faith Christian School. On February
10, 1993, we had our very first Faith Christian School Valentine's
'Banquet. The banquet was held at the Cheese Barn in Panama
City. We were privileged to have David Jones come to speak to us
on the topic of love. The food was excellent, and the activities were
fun. Everyone left full and with a sense of encouragement. The first,
second, and third grade classes attended a presentation of Cinderel-
la at the Panama City Marina Auditorium on Wednesday of last
week. The students had a front row seat to the whole production. It
Even though we are beginning to expand and do new things, we
still have many things that we do each year. For instance, our an-
nual candy sale has Just begun. The students at F.C.S. sell Her-
shey's candy to raise money to fund the school and its programs.
This is one of our largest fund-raisers of the year. If you would like
to purchase some candy to help out the school or if you have a
huge sweet tooth, you can get in touch with any of our students,
and they will be glad to accommodate you. Remember... it is for a
Some of our other annual events are the spelling bee and the
science fair. The spelling bee was held on February 12. Jason Shoaf
,came in first place, and Chris Robershaw was the runner-up. The
science fair will be held on February 19, and everyone is welcome to
come by to look at the .students' exhibits. For information concern-
ing the time, just call the office at 229-6707. Our Campbell's soup
label contest is still going strong. For those who don't know what
this is, it is a contest between the different grades at our school to
see how many soup labels can be collected. The labels are then re-
turned to the Campbell's Company in exchange for school equip-
ment or supplies.. We invite anyone to donate soup labels so that we
might be able to trade them for a laminating machine.
Almost another six weeks has gone by, and it is about time for
report cards to go out. The students will receive them on February
23, and I know everyone is looking forward to getting them.'
On Tuesday, February 9, af-
ter 10 rounds of competition, Port
St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High crowned a
new spelling champ. Natasha
Powell, a seventh grader, beat out
27 other contestants by spelling

the runner-up, missing "hybrid."

manufacturer or we destroy them.
It is our duty as a pharmacy to see that every precaution
is taken to insure that every prescription you receive is able
to perform as represented. We are fully aware of this

Floyd said there are ways to
get around the confiscatory taxes,
but a property owner can't wait
until the last moment and expect
to escape the heavy tax burden.
Property owners are still al-
lowed to give each child or spouse
up to $10,000 each year and re-
move the value from his estate for
tax purposes, Floyd pointed out.
There are other intricate means of
avoiding the heavy taxes, also,
but they are too complicated to
explain to a lay audience and
need the input of an expert.
Floyd said his purpose in
making the report was to alert
property owners to begin taking
steps now if they expect their in-
heritance to go to the one they
wish to receive it. "Otherwise, an
estate may have to be liquidated
in order to get the cash to pay in-

Report cards are due February 26th (Friday), so please be look-
ing for them and insist on seeing them. We'll be into the fifth six
weeks and problems need to addressed immediately. Don't hesitate
to call and ask any questions you might have. .
According to Mrs. Wooten, a good time was had by all at the
middle school Valentine's Dance. Now, maybe the middle schoolers
can settle down a little and get serious about their work. If you're
into philosophy, a parent commented to me the other day that she
thought the main reason some students have discipline problems is
because they often have never been told "no" then when they ar-
rive at school, they must face being told "no, you can't talk in class,
or be in the hall, etc." Sounds like good logical thinking to me.
We want to remind all parents of the workshop, "How to Survive
the Teenage Years," Thursday, February 18th at 6:30 p.m. in the
WHS commons. Vanessa Kent, a Christian counselor affiliated with
Rivendale, will be the presenter.
February 25th will be a busy day for our students. Mr. Monks
has worked very hard to develop "Career Day" for grades 9-12. Rep-
resentatives from 14 different careers will give two 20 minute pres-
entations during first period. Each student will have the opportuni-
ty to learn about two careers that he/she has pre-selected. This is a
first for WHS students and we hope they will take full advantage of
is sponsoring a circus. Admission'for students is $2.00. We encour-
age all students to attend and support this-project.

Live Oaks Are Magnificent
One of Area's Most Unique Trees, Long Lived, Pest Free
Few of our native trees are as
magnificent o; beautiful as a
huge, old live ok. This long-lived,
usually pest-free, species is
among our most valuable and
historic shade trees. Unfortunate-
ly, homeowners confuse live oaks
and water oaks and use them in:
their landscapes, instead.
The live oak is one of the
most characteristic trees on this
part of our nation. Live oaks grow
in hammocks and along lake
margins in every Florida county.
A large live oak specimen may be
20 to 30 : feet around the trunk,
with limbs spreading over 150
feet. Usually, they aren't more
than 40 or 50 feet high. The bark
is more; often grayish-brown,
broken into urlform, narrow, flat-
topped ridge The leaves' are
dark green and shiny in the
upper part of the tree often
paler and downy on lower
Live oaks reproduce in the
wild by seed and by vegetative
means. Although they aren't
showy, flowers are produced eve-
ry spring, in March and April.
Acorns mature in September and
October. If they fall on a moist,
warm site, they germinate quick-
ly. Live oaks will sprout from the
root collar, and from 'shallow
roots of existing trees. When a
tree is cut, or the trunk and
limbs are destroyed, every main
root may send up three or four
sprouts. If these are mowed, new
ones appear in even greater num-
bers. This makes live oaks very
hard to kill.
It's a good bet that most of
the historic trees in the southeast
are live oaks. But, most are not
as old as we think. As a rule,
even the largest aren't more than
two or three hundred years old.
Some of the huge, slow-growing
live oak specimens actually devel-
oped from sprouts or groups of
several trees, which grew togeth-
er. This tends to make them look
older than they actually are.
Also, trunk circumference
may depend quite a bit on where
a tree is growing. The live oak so-
ciety of Louisiana won't accept a
tree as being 100 years old, un-
less the trunk is at least 17 feet
around. To reach this size in a
hundred years, a tree would have
to add two inches to its circum-
ference every year. But, in Flori-.
da's andy soil, live oaks may not
grow thatfast. An increase:!in cir-..
cumference .of,- onle .to one-.-,
and-one-half inches .. annually
Like many other trees, live
oaks in the landscape respond to
proper care. You can raise live
oaks from seed, or transplant
them from the woods. If you do a
good job of root-pruning and top-
pruning, you can successfully
transplant a bare-rooted 'live oak
CHILDREN HEALTH FORUM
The Itch and
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
With the flurry of chickenpox in the area, it might be good to re-
view some of what we know about the disease and its management.
A primary case *of Varicella-Zoster Virus disease is chickenpox.'
Most people are exposed to this in childhood and have a relatively
After a primary illness, the virus remains around but dormant.
If the virus becomes activated in later life, the person develops shin-
gles. You will hear about children developing chickenpox after an
adult has shingles same disease.
The incubation period for chickenpox in a susceptible person is
usually 14-16 days. It can be as early as 11 days or as late as 20
If you know your child has been exposed to chickenpox you be-
gin watching for signs or symptoms'of disease about two weeks af-
ter exposure. These signs and symptoms do not usually amount to
much. A,slight fever and then a few red spots. The spots begin up
around the head and neck and spread outward and down along the
body extremities. The skin lesions are red spots about the size of
the tips of your little finger. In the center of the red spot is a tiny
blister that may not be obvious unless you look at the red spot at
an angle. The spots itch. The children scratch and shortly there are
red crusting sores.
Baths with cornstarch, baking soda, and oatmeal have all been
tried to help itching. Calamine lotion will bften help the itching and
some people find Benadryl by mouth to help. You can keep an older
child occupied by giving him a watercolor brush and letting him
paint the sores with calamine lotion as they itch. This gives him
something to do besides scratch..
People with chickenpox are contagious until they are no longer
getting new sores and all the lesions are crusted over. Children can
return to activities with all sores crusted, but often they feel strange
about doing so and feel that other children will poke fun at them.
They may elect to remain at home until all the crusts are gone.
Patients with chickenpox should not receive aspirin because
there is an increased incidence of Reye's Syndrome in chickenpox
patients receiving aspirin. Instead of aspirin, Acetominophen (Tyle-
nol) may be given for fever or comfort.
Healthy children will usually not have complications after
chickenpox. Problems can arise in several situations. The baby
born to a woman who was ill with chickenpox in the first and early
second trimester of the pregnancy, may be born with several differ-
ent birth defects. 'If the mother develops the disease just before or
Just after delivery, the baby can be very ill and some die. The most
common complication of chickenpox in adults is pneumonia.
Immunocompromised patients (children being treated for leuke-
mias. cancer, arthritis, and AIDS) can become deathly ill with
chickenpox. Fortunately, there are current treatments that can be
used In these extreme situations.
S.....Tere iscurrently a vaccine being licensed for use in the United
States. Thls vaccine was developed and has been used for years in
Japan. The vaccine is anticipated to be licensed soon and we expect
chickenpox to go the way of diphtheria, whooping cough, and teta-
nus. and disappear.

with a trunk diameter of several
inches. You will need to supply
plenty of water for several months
after moving your tree.
SLive oaks in the landscape
usually get some benefit from fer-
tilizer applied to the lawn. But,
you also can apply fertilizer di-
rectly to a tree's root zone. Take a
metal rod and punch holes in the
'ground about a foot deep and 18
inches apart under the tree cano-
py. Stay at least a foot out from
the trunk, to avoid injuring the
roots. Make holes out to the drip
line or just beyond, Then distrib-
ute the fertilizer, in the holes. A
tree needs about 25 to 50 pounds
of fertilizer for every foot of trunk

Big Day at
Bay St. Joseph
Valentines and sweethearts
were abundant at Bay St. Joseph
Care Center last week. Anticipa-
tion and excitement were in the
air as the Valentine party got into
full swing. There were lots of
goodies served. Valentine cards
were passed out from' all over the
community and even special
heart-shaped cakes were served
,on each lunch tray. The cakes
were brought in by the Highland
View Assembly of God Church.
The big event for the day was
the announcement of the Sweet-
hearts from each hall. The win-
ners were: Annie Pate, Willie Ho-
ward, Bessie Brinson, and Coy
White. Special sweethearts are
Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Doral.
On Sunday, Valentine's Day,
several churches put on pro-
grams and treated the residents
to all kinds of surprises. It seems
the entire weekend was made up
of special people making, other
special people happy.
Jastors Jim and Susan List
The Highland View Power of
Positive Students (POPS) Club
made their first monthly visit to
Bay St. Joseph Care Center on-
Thursday, February 11th.
The energetic fifth grade stu-
dents shared their talents, fresh
ideas, and most important of all,
their interest in someone else,
someone who needs them., The
elderly residents were most ap-
preciative of, the efforts these
young people put forth and look
forward to their next visit. Both
the faculty of Highland View Ele-
mentary and the parents of these
students can be proud of their ac-
sweethearts forever: Jean
and Wilson Doral.
A new church will open its
doors for services beginning Sun-
day, February 28. The Rock of
Port St Joe will be located at 103
This church, The Rock is
built on the foundation of the
Apostles and Prophets, Jesus
Christ, Himself, being the Chief
Cornerstone (Eph. 2:20).
According to Pastor List, The,
Rock is non-denominational, even
as the true Church is. God has
brought: about the restoration of
His Church in the prophetic
anointing' and is restoring true
government through the Apostolic
ministry of the five fold office.
The Rock is a part of seeing
the Church of Jesus Christ move
into maturity arid wisdom. This
vision will be accomplished
through weapons of praise, wor-
ship, intercession and obedience
to the Word of the:Lord ..
Pastors Jim and Susan List
look forward to the opportunity of
ministering to you and your fami-
