.Dedication ceremonies to
officially name the recently
completed Overstreet Bridge,
crossing the Intracoastal
Waterway on Hwy. 386. were
held at 1:00 p.m. CST
Wednesday, December 20. .
The sign proclaiming it the
"W. G. Hardy, Sr. Bridge" was
Unveiled by the surviving chil-
dren of Hardy, who passed
away in 1963. .
Hardy was a pioneer of the
Overstreet area, being credited
as the first settler of the com-
munity, coming to the area
around 1908. He was married
to the former Annie Stone of
Wewahitchka. niece of T. H.
Stone, and the father of nine
He provided for his family
by farming and running a tur-
pentine business. At one time
turpentining was a booming
business in the area with six
operating mills.

sion unanimously petitioned
in February, 1994, by resolu-
tion for,the bridge to be named
alter W.. G. Hardy. They and
Other Gulf County residents,
had pushed for the naming of
the bridge after the pioneer
settler: since the announce-
ment :by the Department of
Transportation that the new
high rise bridge would replace
the floating bridge.
The original bridge over
the iatenvay was a ferry,
'which was later replaced by a
floating bridge. At the time of
the construction of the high
rise, the floating bridge was
thought to be the last of its
kind in use in the entire
nation. Prior to being put in
service at Overstreet the float-
ing bridge was in place over
the waterway on Highway 71
at White City before being
,replaced by the original F.
Elgin Bayless bridge in the
Gulf County Commission
Chairman Billy Traylor, State
Senator Pat Thomas, State
Representative Robert
Trammell and .District DOT
Secretary Ed Prescott shared
time at the podium, with each
;praising the- decision to name
the bridge after Hardy.
Senator Thomas and Rep.
Trammelf' ent a step further,
tracing .theif roots and claim-
.Ing distant kinship to the
Sere. that DOT researches a
proposed name to determine
its "worthiness" before they
make the final decision. "W. G.
iardy, Sr. has proven most
worthy to have this bridge ded-
icated after him," he said.
"Dad would be proud," said
Raymond Hardy, son of W. G.
Hardy and life long resident of
Overstreet. Raymond thanked
the County Commissioners,
Senator Thomas, Rep.
Trammell and DOT for their
efforts on behalf of himself and
the numerous relatives who
were able to attend the cere-
monies, as well as those who
were unable to attend.
W. G. Hardy' was instru-
mental in helping to establish

the first school and church in
the area. He also donated his
services as a county commis-
, sioner while Gulf County was
still a part of Calhoun County
prior to 1925.
Additionally, he was one of
the individuals responsible for
initiating the formation of Gulf
County, separating it from

Tots Benefit From A Captive Christmas Spirit
Over 700 handmade wooden toys crafted by Gulf Correctional In-
stitution's staff and inmates were presented to civic organizations,
church leaders and Gulf County Health and Rehabilitative Services
officials on Monday, December 18. Local school counselors and
H.R.S. staff members have helped compile a list of needy children
that will benefit from this abundant display of Christmas spirit.
G.C.I.'s staff members and inmates have been busy throughout
the year preparing for their involvement in the "Toys for Tots" pro-
gram by producing beautiful toys they transformed from scrap wood.
The institution's Vocational Instructor, Cleve Barfield worked with
inmates to help build toys which included trains, planes, dolls, cra-
dles, boats, hobby horses, and many more popular children's items.
They also contributed to the program by refinishing and painting a
number of children's desks that would have been otherwise thrown
away. Special boxes had also been placed in various locations at the
institution for its staff to donate toys for a special needs child.
T. E. Whitehead, Assistant Superintendent, would like to express
a sincere thanks to all staff and inmates who participated in this
year's program. "It was a big success," he commented, and followed
by his desire for next year's effort to produce as good, or better, re-
sults for the children of Gulf County.

We-re honored to join you in singing His praises

as we extend our warmest wishes to you and

your family.

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
And so it was, that, while they were there, the
days were accomplished that she should be deliv-
ered. And she brought forth herfirstborn 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 theirflock
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 nto them, Fear riot;for be-
hold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all people. For unto you is bom 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 1in 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
I child. And all they that heard it wondered at those-
things which were told them by the shepherds.
But Mary kept all these things, and pondered
them in her heart. And the shepherds returned,
glorifying and praising God for all the things that
they had heard and seen, as it was told unto

in 1952. I was young, very
young. My awareness of -things"
going on around me was just
coming into focus, as was my
ability to remember them. I

My older brother woke me

Mother, her face all aglow,

'Twas Only Four Days til Christmas and Time to Get Cracking!

Christmas and all through the
house ... the joint was jumping!
The last issue of the newspa-
per, prior to the holiday, had
been put to bed and we have all
but quit any productive work un-
til Christmas is over. It's about
time, too, or we wouldn't have
any Christmas at our house this
Now, comes the chore of pur-
chasing Christmas gifts, putting
up the tree and getting the last of
the decorations up. I know you
are aghast at my not having had
an opportunity to put up the
Christmas tree and all its attend-
'ing decorations. But such is life. I
used to have the time to get the
tree up. With six kids in the
house wanting to see a genuine
Christmas tree in the living room,
one had dar well better get it up
Sin a hurry!
The Christmas tree question
used to get raised, the day after
Thanksgiving. When the kids
would see the Macy's parade on

television, it was a powerful re-
minder that it was beginning to
be time
I've had to go to town on Sun-
day on more than one occasion
and get a Christmas tree from in
front of a store and go back later
to pay for it. My kids were serious
as a heart attack about getting
ready, early, for Christmas.

BACK IN THE "Charles Dick-
ens" days people didn't put up
their trees until Christmas Eve.
The practice hung on for a long
time with the tree going up when
the toys or gifts went underneath.
I read that somewhere.

When I was a child it was im-
perative the tree be put up early,
also. Parents tried to wait as long
as possible to keep from having a '
dead tree standing around to
catch fire by a spark from the
fireplace or heater.
Back in Oklahoma where I
lived as a child, we used a black-
jack oak sapling for a Christmas
tree. We had no pine trees where
we lived and. nobody made
enough to buy a Christmas tree.
Artificial trees, so popular now,
were non-existent. So it was a
blackjack oak or nothing. We vot-
ed not to do without so the black-
jack oak substituted for a spruce.

or scotch pine.
It all worked out, very well,
and besides, you could place a.
wagon, an occasional bicycle or a.
ball glove under one of those the
same as you could a traditional
Christmas tree.

NOW, FOUR DAYS prior to
Christmas, it's put up time. That
tree, the Christmas gifts, the good
food, all has to be rounded up be-
fore it's too late.
The kids are all grown up
now, with grown kids of their
own. We're expecting all of them
at our house, as usual, for
SChristmas Eve dinner and that
takes a mite ofpreparation.
Remember. I said our kids
are all grown, with grown kids of
their own. Now more come on,
Christmas Eve. Kids have a way
of multiplying.
There was .a period of time
when I didn't have the chore of
putting up the tree. One or two of
the grandchildren would show up

at tree-trimming time, all eager
and ready to get the job done. All
Frenchie and I had to do was sit
back and give occasional direc-.
tions. Now, we're back to square
one. .
S When grandchildren get
grown, it's like your own children
becoming grown with their qwn
set of responsibilities and inter-
ests. Despite how times change,
however,, comes Christmas-time,
they all expect that "tradition" of
Christmas Eve family time.

I HAVE TO COME up with
some gifts in the next couple of
days and I'm hampered,
I'm not one of those imagina-
tive kind who knows almost .in-
stinctively just what to look for
and what the people on my list
would like to have.
So, if you have any ideas or
suggestions, I would appreciate
your sharing them with me in
plenty of time to put the sugges-
tions into action. Otherwise,

there is no telling what the ob-"
jects of my gift giving will open
Sunder the tree on Christmas Eve
or Christmas Day.
Some say it isn't the gift, but
the thought that counts. Be
aware any gift I give has, a lot of
thought behind it, even if I hap--
pen to give Kes's favorite gift, a
slice 'em, dice 'em Veg-O-Matic
salad shooter.

I'M IN EXTREME thought
this morning, racking my brain
for an alternative, or idea.
The kids have all out-grown
toys, with a couple of exceptions,
and that doesn't ma~ce i any easi-
er. I'm not at all molifled with the
fact that as boys aAd girls grow,
so does the price of the toys they
want for Christmas. I'm sure sev-
eral of the grandchildren would
allow me to solve my gift quan-
dary by giving them a new con-
vertiblel Isn't that nice of them?
You have a "Merry Chrismas".

Rev. Elli Brings

Christmas Sto'ry

To Rotary Club
Former Port St. Joe Rotary
Club member and former presi-
dent of the club, Rev. Sid Ellis
visited the club last Thursday to
give their annual Christmas mes-
sage in the inimitable Ellis style.
Ellis retired 13 years ago and
moved to Panama City. He is now
entering his 80th year but his wit
and his thoughts are both still as
sharp as a tack.
Ellis took the unusual Christ-
mas theme of playing the "devil's
advocate" in his thoughts about
Using Romans 15:9 as his
text, Ellis stated God made every-
thing. "Man didn't ask to be
created so he acts as if. he is
God's responsibility and he is not
responsible for himself," the
speaker said. "God made both
man and animals. The only differ-
ence between the two is that man
was made with the ability to dis-
cern between right and wrong
and possessing this ability is re-
sponsible for his actions."
"What would things be like if
Christ hadn't come," he asked,.
then proceeded to list a number
of distasteful conditions in our
world today as if they were nor-
mal rather than abnormal atti-
"If Christ hadn't come we
would have conditions rampant.
such as murder, rape, assaults,
robberies, drunkenness, pornog-
raphy, robbery, cheating, divorce,
drug addiction, broken families,
child molesttion, etc., as our
everyday fare. he stated.
"Much like today!" he ex-
claimed, "except we would have
no hope or Incentive for things to
be better."
'This Christmas season we
are still looking for Him to return
and set everything right, but un-
fortunately, we as human beings
are looking everywhere but in the
right place inside ourselves!"
he concluded.

(From Page 2)
bothering with the greens and
beans and things ......
I have observed my family
and my wife's family pig out for
over forty Christmases now.
Amazing! I'm writing a book on
Yuletide eating 'entitled, "The
Twelve Polyextrasaturated Pounds
of Cliris~as". I hope 'Vyo'll pick
up a c4. In it you'll read about -
my Mother's, great aunt, Uni-
belle Hagen. According to Mom,
for years Aunt Unibelle showed
up at every Christmas dinner
eight months pregnant and

down double handfuls of egg
custer creme pies and chocolate
eclairs. "I'm eating for two you
'Course, I didn't meet Aunt
Unibelle until the later years
-when, her eating had slowed a
little. Her ample size still dis-
played her many Christmas ad-
ventures. I asked Dad about the
prodigious eating stories I had
heard. "Son," he said with a
wink and a smile, "that's all be-
hind her now."
About the best warm glow
I've seen in recent years was the
Christmas I gave my wife the
Romo Veg-i-matic and, ever
mindful of our family trees, a
box of sugar free lemon drops.
Whewl She turned beet red and
was speechless! I was so thank-
ful I remembered my Mother
telling me it was better to give
than to receive ......
I know what you're thinking.
How can you top a Veg-i-matic?
Well, I tell you, it's been tough. I
think she was disappointed in
the Wok; I haven't seen the
Stairmaster since she un-
wrapped it; arid she hardly ever
uses the Buttoniere. But, I'm re-
bounding big time this year--
I've gotten her the genuine, one
and only, no cheap' imitation
here Presto Salad Shooter and
I've'got a lead on some fat free'
coconut squares.
Deck the halls and prepare
to spring to the sashesl I can
feel that warm glow already ris-

A happy family sitting around
the hearth reading heart warming
cards. That's the picture most of
us have when we think of going
home for the holidays-but that's
not the way it is with most fami-
lies, says Radford University psy-

disagreements over everything,
from politics to how to raise chil-
When we go home. it's easy to
fall into the old roles of compliant
child, disagreeable child, critical
parent or whatever roles we

hear something very loudly for it
to drive us crazy, because it's the
same stuff that's always driven us
RU counselor education pro-
fessor Paula Stanley agrees that
,when adult children go home for
the holidays it can be easy to fall
into old roles and resume old con-
flicts. .
"Don't idealize your holiday
expectations," she says, "realize
that it's easy to revert to behaving
like a child and fall into the same
kinds of cycles that have always
existed." .
Your parents may never
approve of your friends or t he way
you dress,. but there's no need to
take their criticism personally,
she says. "As adults, we need to
see our parents as people and try
to maintain a good relationship
even if that means some self-
restraint Also, instead of focusing
on your differences, try to find
some common ground.

Chase suggests planning
shared activities like shopping or
going to a museum or play.
"Activities give 'you something
neutral to talk about and some-
thing shared," he says, "which is
especially important if you've lost
touch and aren't really sure what
to say to each other."
Shared holiday time will be
less strained if you make an effort
to stay in touch throughout the
year, he says. 'Then it won't seem
so artificial."
"Sometimes during the holi-
days we get pulled in many differ-
ent directions and different
Demands are put on us," says
Chase, especially if many relatives
are involved. 'We need to decide
who we're going to see and how
much time we'll spend with them.
For couples, it can help to negoti-
ate this beforehand and let family
members know your plans ahead
of time. That way, at leastyou've
laid the groundwork."
If you run into conflict, don't
shut down forget defensive, sug-
gests Chase. "Instead, plan for
success," he says. "Adapt and fig-
ure out how you can make things
work," '
"Sometimes it helps to think
of yourself as a guest instead ofa
person who is going home," he
says. "Then, you'll be more willing
to be polite and less willing to
contradict or be argumentative."
Another pointer from the experts:
Don't stay too long. There will be
less stress if you leave before you
wear out your welcome.

Stress is the bodily or mental
tension that results from a per-
son's response to physical, chem-
ical or emotional factors. Stress
can be physical as well as mental.
Everybody feels stress at different
times, in different amounts and
with different amounts and with
different reactions.
Researchers don't yet know
the role that stress plays, in the
development of heart disease.
That's why the American Heart
Association says mo e study is
needed on the subject.

as though everyone looks for ways
to aggravate me. Having to go
through all the hassle, red tape,
and physical work associated
with recovering from' damages
caused by the recent hurricane, is
More than I can endure.
There are times when I think
nobody ,really cares anything
about me. Even the disaster-relief
agencies are not doing what they
should to help with the repairs on
my house. It's bad to need help
and everyone just beats-around
the-bush. I get so angry that I give
them a piece of my mind. It seems

However, you can reduce the
stress level by making sure you

fuel fill fitting made by Attwood
Corporation and -installed upon
as many as 45.000 boats. The it-
ting was Installed on motorboats
with permanently installed fuel
tanks starting in 1994 and con-
tinuing until present. One docu-
mented case involved a boat own-
er that had discovered a fitting
failure after a fuel attendant
pumped 45 gallons of gas into'
what was supposed to be a 30
gallon tank. The fuel was in the
bilge. There have been no reports
of fires or explosions caused by
fitting failures but anyone affect-
ed by this recall should get the
problem corrected as soon as pos-
The affected Attwood fitting is
black, white or gray plastic and
has the series numbers 3660,
3661, 3662, 3663, 3668, or 3669
on the underside of the fill cap. If
the deck fill hole is oblong or
;oval, indicating that the fill neck
is angled, then the fitting must be
replaced. The boat manufacturers
are replacing the fittings and the
boat should not be used until re-
placement is complete. This infor-
mation is provided to all marine
law enforcement officers for possi-
ble investigatory purposes.
For more information about,
what boat models are involved,
the public is advised to call their
boat manufacturer or the U.S.
Coast Guard at. 1-800-368-5647.

Whether You Say "Poin-set-ah" or Poin-set-ee-ah", They're Still Very Tender Flowers
Poinsettias Have Become Very Popular Throughout the Country As Beautiful Symbols of the Christmas Season

Poinsettias and Christmas go
together especially here in Flori-
da. The poinsettia's bright red
bracts and dark foliage give this
plant a festive appearance, which
is especially appreciated during
the holidays.
Poinsettias have become very
popular throughout the country
as symbols of Christmas. As a
Floridian, you have the widest se-
lection of poinsettia this year,
you'll want to know what to look
for, and how to care for your pur-
chase after you get it home. My
information on poinsettia selec-
tion was provided by Extensibn
Horticulture specialist Dr. Robert
J. Black.
You'll probably hear this
plant call both poinsettia (poin-
set-ah) and poinsettia (poin-set-
'ee-ah)..The second pronunciation
'is preferred by most garden ex-
perts. But, don't feel you have to
say "poin-set-ee-ah". If you tell
your nurseryman you want a
poin-set-ah he/she'll know what
you mean.
When shopping for a poinset-
tia, look for several things. Be
sure the plant has' green foliage
almost to- the soil line. A plant
which has lost most of its bottom
leaves is probably getting old.
Factors such as sudden tempera-
ture changes, soil pests, and in-

sects also can cause leaf drop. A
good supply of lower leaves is a
basic key to healthier, as well as
younger plants.
The showy parts, .which most
people call flowers, aren't flowers
at all. They're special "kinds of
leaves, called bracts. These
should be large enough to extend
well beyond the lower green foll-

age, and they should be brightly
* colored. The most popular poin-
settia color is red. But, you also
can find numerous shades of,
pink, white and every color com-
The real poinsettia flowers
are small green and yellow clus-
ters growing in the center of the.
bracts. You should select a plant
with small, green undeveloped'
flower parts. If a poinsettia al-'

ready has opened, yellow flowers,
a good portion of the plant's dis-
play life is over, and the bracts
soon will begin to fade.
Poinsettias are native to the
warmer, humid regions of Mexico.
So, potted poinsettias need spe-
cial care. As house plants, poin-
settias should be located where
they'll enjoy uniform tempera-
tures of 60 to 75 degrees fahren-
heit during the day, and about 60

Keeping Tabs On Holiday Treasures

(NAPS)-One of the joys
of Christmas is discovering
that a Christmas treasure
you bought because you fell
in love with it, is now con-
sidered very valuable.
For example,.anyone
lucky enough to. own a
gleaming Christopher Rad-
ko Partridge in a Pear Tree
ornament; has an extra.
Sreasoni to be joyful this sea-
son. This first ornament inM
the Twelve Days of Christ-
mas series has skyrocketed
from the original issue
.,price. of $3.5,to between,
$600 and $1,000 on the"
secondary market.
Lucky collectors of The _:
Village Mill from'Depart-
ment 56's Dickens Village
Series have recently traded :
this piece for between"
$3,800 and $5,200.
Fluctuations like this
happen all the time and can
often make your insurance
coverage for these treasures
inadequate. So, while you're
decorating for the holidays,
it might be wise to take
stock of your treasures and
update your inventory list
with current secondary
market values. Here's what
you need to list::
Who-list the manu-
facturer/distributor, and,
the artist. :
What-record the
name of the piece, includ-
ing series name, if applica-


ble, arid product number.
When--note date of'
purchase and the date the
piece was produced.
Where-jot dowi the
place of purchase.
Why-Was the piece a
special event piece or.a
gift? Making a note keeps,
memories fresh.
How Much-What was
the' original issue price
when it first hit the market?
How much did you pay for
it? What's it worth today?
"How Much" questions
are critical for adequate
insurance coverage or tax
purposes if you sell an
extensive collection.
To help fill in the blanks,
look into the Collectors'
Information Bureau Collect-
ibles Market Guide and
Price Index ($22.95 + $3.75

should receive bright light, but
not direct sun. Avoid areas sub-
ject to drafts, sudden tempera-
ture changes, low humidity, and
dim light.
If you have poinsettias in
your landscape, you'll probably
use them as cut flowers, to
brighten your home's holiday de-
cor. To keep the bracts from wilt-
ing, the stem ends should be
singed to coagulate the milky sap
and prevent its loss. Also, it helps
to "condition" poinsettias, by
placing cuttings in water and
holding them in a cool area over-
night, before bringing them in-
doors. Arrangements of cut poin-
settias should be placed in cool,

draft-free areas where: there's
good light. But, like potted
plants, they should not be ex-
posed to the direct rays of the
If carefully selected and prop-
erly cared for, poinsettias can add
a festive touch to your home dur-
ing the holidays.

May peace and enlightenment
guide you this holiday season.

Floridians Want A

.Cut In Spending,

Taxes, for Christmas

Growth Rate of Taxes Far Outstripping
SPer Capita Income Growth Rate
You won't see it in any of those phony polls liberalsre always get-
-:ting into 'their friendly daily news media, but the biggest gift most
Floridians want inder their Christmas tree from government is a crack-
down on spending and taxes.
And why not?
State government expenditures soared far beyond population growth
or inflation in the past 15 years and taxpayers know it. The total per capl-
Sta tax load on Florida residents was $977 in 1983 and $2,128 in 1993.
The whopping 117 percent increase compares most unfavorably to a per
capital income increase of 73 percent and a 43 percent inflation rate hike
during the same period.
The Florida Supreme Court clobbered the tax cap drive last year but
-perhaps because of a guilty conscience-let stand proposedd amend-
ment that would remove the single-subject requirement for tax-related
Issues. Not surprisingly; it was passed unanimously by voters.
Next year the Florida Tax Cap Committee expects to have constitu-
Stional amendments on the ballot that would require voter approval of any,
Stax increase by state or local government and allow a jury to compensate
.property owners when it determines government action has diminished
the value of their land.
'There is no doubt they will pass when citizensget a chance to vote
on them." Tax Cap Chairman David Biddulph said.
This isn't good news for Gov. Lawton Chiles who has a school tax
reform plan (higher taxes of course) that he has threatened to take to the
people in a constitutional, amendment. Nor is it.good news for Sen. Bob
Graham'who is standing in the wings nationally with a plan to increase
Medicaid spending dramatically. Medicaid, which requires state matching
money, has had the biggest increase of all government services:
Proponents of big government spending, of course, argue that need-
ed services will suffer because voters-if given a chance will vote against
tax increases. They're wrong.
The Tax Cap Committee has found voters passed 54 percent of the
tax increases and 69 percent of the bond issues on the ballot of Florida
counties during 1980-1992. It seems voters are not mean-spirited and
selfish as the liberals contend, but a group of Florida newspapers did find
last year that government waste was viewed by them as the biggest prob-
"If it's such a good deal. why isn't the full faith and credit of Santa
Rdsat Couiity pledged for it," said Florida Comptroller Bob Milligan, the
only Cabinet member voting against another toll bridge across Pensacola
Bay. "It's insane to think the county and the state will not come to the
rescue of the bridge authority if the toll rate plan for paying for it goes
belly'-up. '

S'You can't make liars tell the truth with any law," Sen. W. D. Childers,
Pensacola, said at hearings on the dirty-tricks investigation of the
Democratic Party and Gov. Lawton Chiles' campaign committee.

Here's the Capitol News Roundup
Secretary of State Sandra Mortham would send federal block grants
directly to counties and limit public campaign financing in Florida to can-
'didates who refuse Political Action Committee mqney. .,,
K Those were only two of her public policy suggesians;made at a un-
dheon of thdaamies Madllson InsiftutliiA Tallahassee lWs We'a'.': ..
S"I'm a true believer in local government," said Mortham, 44. former
Republican state representative from Pinellas County. "I've never seen a
mandate from Tallahassee or Washington that I liked. Never ever."
As an example of her true belief in local control, she said she would
like to see the $31 billion the Florida Legislature voted for education
divided by the number of students and sent directly to the local county

school boards.
The same should apply to federal block grants, she said. Why should
bureaucrats in Washington or Tallahassee get the money, take out their
share of the pot, then pass it on down.
S''The best ideas come from the locals.'They are meeting problems
head on and what's good for one county wouldn't work in another."
Mortham said.
SClaiming studies are showing more Political Action Committee money
went to candidates who took public campaign funding than those that
didn't, Mortham said she'd propose legislation forcing candidates to
choOse one or the other.:
"Outlaw all special interest money. Take no PAC money at all," she
S The same day that she said she totally opposed public campaign
funding, Sen. W. D. Childers, R-Pensacola, sitting on the Senate Ethics
Committee, said it bothered him that Cov. Lawton Chiles spent public tax
dollars on "lying" telephone calls to seniors the weekend before he beat'
Jeb Bitsh by about 64,000 votes.
Division of Elections records show Chiles got more than $1 million in
public'campaign tax money from the state just one day before his com-
mittee wrote a check to pay for the deceptive phone calls.
"It was just too close for comfort," said Childers, the longest tenured
member of the Senate who recently changed parties from Democrat to
Mortliam would also reform the federal motor voter law that allows
voter registration when applying for a driver license or welfare program,
claiming it lends itself to fraud. An eight-year old girl was registered to



from Tallahassee

vote in Florida
But she stands behind the unique Florida Cabinet System as a bas-
tion of last;resort for many citizens who otherwise wouldn't have govern-
ment access. She cited examples of six Cabinet members making deci-'
sions not'recommended by staff that wouldn't have happened if it was left
up to only the governor.
Pledging to flight taxes, waste and red tape. state Rep. Allen Boyd
joined the race for the 2nd North Florida Congressional District last week
as another conservative Democrat-Sen. Charles Williams-changed his
mind. and withdrew.
Boyd, of MontcellUo heads the informal coalition of conservative
Democrats and Republicans. A farmer, he has been in the Florida House
since 1989 and says he will base his candidacy on family values to suc-
ceed retiring U. S. Cong. Pete Peterson. D Marianna.
Williams, a former Suwannee County commissioner considered the
most conservative Democrat in the legislature, said a month ago he might
switch parties to run for the seat next summer, but changed his mind
because he realized he didn't want to spend four or five days in
Washington every week....
Democratic insiders said the real reason was that neither party would
help him raise money for the race. Liberal Democratic activists, of course,
hate him. The'GOP is reluctant to spend much money in a district that Is
registered 80 percent Democratic.
Williams said it isn't true, he could win, and last year he raised more
money for his campaign than anyone else in the Senate.

Consumers, And The
State's "No Calls List"
The marketing efforts of
many businesses and organiza-
tions depend on the telephone.
But many consumers do not like
the intrusion of telephone sales
calls -into their personal lives.
Florida was one of the first states
to address the matter through
specific legislation.
Under the Florida Telephone
Solicitation Act, the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services compiles a list of
consumers who do notwish to re-
ceive sales solicitations over the
phone. All telephone solicitation
firms that are covered by the law
must purchase the "No Sales So-
licitation Calls List" before engag-
ing in business in the state, and

they cannot call consumers who
are listed.
The cost to consumers of hav-
ing a telephone number listed is
$10 for the first year, with a year-
ly renewal fee of $5 to keep a
number on the list. The list is up-
dated quarterly.
Some types of calls and busi-
nesses are exempt from the provi-
sions of the law. Solicitors may
make calls:
in response to an expressed re-
quest by the person called;
*in reference, to an existing
debt, contract, payment or per-
*to any person with whom the
telephone solicitor has a prior
or an existing business rela-
tionship; or
*if they are employed by a
newspaper and are. calling
about newspaper business.

We'd like to chime in with resounding "thanks"
to all the fine folk who have helped make
our year a ringing success.

To all our valued patrons, we extend
our warmest wishes for a very
merry Christmas and a prosperous year.

Joseph, The
Forgotten Man
Of Christmas
At Christmas, we often forget
Joseph.. Mary, the baby Jesus,
Wise Men, and Shepherds take
center, stage in this'beautiful :dra-
ma called Christmas. Somewhere
just out of the spotlight is this'ob-
scure, figure named Joseph.
Somehow Joseph gets lost in the
background of all that happens.
But, .the unnoticed is not- neces-
sarily the unimportant. Joseph is
the forgotten man of Christmas.
We would do well to .remember
him. He is important. And he
made a difference that is so often
overlooked. ,
The Bible tells us several
things about Joseph that help us
understand more his importance
to the Christmas story. First. Jo-
seph is described as ''"Just man"
(Matthew 1:19 NKJV). The word,
"Just" is sometimes translated,
'righteous." This unfortunately Is
a word we often misunderstand.
Often we. think righteousness to
mean being a ,'goodie, goodie, two
shoes." That is not however, what
the Scripture means when some-.
one is called "righteous." Right-
eousness, as used In the Bible, is
primarily a relational term. It has
:,something to do with keeping cov-
enant or keeping one's word. liv-
ing up to one's promises, and ful-

filling one's obligations.
S In the Old Testament, God is
righteous in that he is the faithful
covenant partner who remains
faithful even in the face of the un-
faithfulness of His people. Right-
eousness is a term which con-
notes tenacity, or stick-with-it-
ness. When the chips are down, a
righteous person just keeps on
keeping on. '
.Joseph was a righteous man.
His righteousness was expressed
in his desire to not so abruptly
end his engagement to Mary. Be-
fore the intervention ofanr angel,
his intentions were to end their
engagement quietly.e Engage-
ments in that day were more seri-
ous than many 'marriages are to-
day. They were not entered into
without serious forethought nor
were they ended without just
cause. Joseph's reluctance to end
the engagement even after' he
found out that Mary was preg-
nant is indicative of how seriously
he took the relationship. This is
why he is called a "Just man".
Second. Joseph was a man of
faith. He was asked to believe the
unbelievable. Even with the an-'
gelic dream, what he was asked;
to accept was incredible. Joseph
had a hunch that what the angel
said was true. He had heard the
same through Mary's tears. But
I'm sure he had some doubts as
We sometimes think that
faith Is the absence of doubt. But
faith Is not so much not having
doubts as it is acting upon those
hunches, those dreams, those
crazy notions we sometimes have

that God does things differently,
that He expects us to act, think
and feel differently. Faith is some-
times fueled with the fires of
doubt. Doubt makes us take our
faith in search of understanding.
But we must realize that if we ful-
ly understand we cease to' have,
faith. For, "faith is being sure of
what we hope for and certain of
what we do not see" (Hebrews
11:1 NIV). Joseph was a a man of,
faith, because he acted upon his
hopes and dreams, and not on
the basis of his doubts. .
.Third,. Joseph -was a family
man. We sometimes forget that
the protective care of Mary and
baby Jesus was left in his hands.
Joseph took care of things. Or-
thodox faith has always asserted
That Joseph was not Jesus' father
in a physical sense. Yet in a rela-
tional sense he was Jesus' "Dad-
dy". He took care of Mary and Je-
sus 'like a good daddy would a
pregnant wife and a new bor

Many feel that Joseph died
while Jesus was still young. But,
he lived long enough to pass on
his carpenter's trade to Jesus. Jo-
seph had enough of an influence
upon Jesus that when Jesus be-
gan his public ministry, the ques-
tion- was raised, "Isn't this Jo-
seph's son?" (Euke 4:22). In some
sense, we can, speculate that Je-
sus may have been the man he
was in part due to the significant
influence of Joseph during Jesus'
early formative years. Joseph had
to have been a special man for
God to entrust him with the care
and early life of His only Son.
In a day where many men do
Snot take responsibility for the
children they father. n a 'time
where were searching for some
positive male role models, we
have to look no further than the
story that is often tld at' Christ-
mas' to find a man who stands
'out of obscurity to be one'worth
noting. Joseph may well be the
forgotten man of Christmas; 'but
we would be wise to remember
him and his example of being a
righteous, faithful, family man.
-.' And we would be wiser still to at-
tempt to live according to the
same principles.

"Good News

Christmas is the greatest "Good News"
our world has ever received. In Luke: 2:10-
11, we find, "And the angel said unto them,
Be not afraid, for behold, I bring you: good
news of great joy which will come too all the
people, for to you is born this dayin the
city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the
Lord." The, babe wrapped in swaddling
clothes lying in a manger changed the
world. Christians received the greatest gift
known to mankind.
Laura and I made a vow to give gifts to
others outside of family and friends because
God sent his Son to be our Savior. Our Lord
spoke of "The least of these" as how to re-
spond to His love for us. There is a Christ-
mas hymn which starts, "Love' came down
at Christmas." I pray that each and every
person who reads this
will open their hearts
to this love. The next
step is to share this
love. Merry -Christmas
to all.

be a game warden when he grows

Some of his favorite things
are: TV show, "Batman"; favorite
song, "Jingle Bells"; and his fa-

The November Hoopla com-
mittee didn't forget their social
time was in November, but they
did have to postpone it until De-
cember! Faculty and staff had a
great belated time on December
11 in the Commons Area.

From the Principal


High School
by Larry A. Mathes

OK-We didn't make the,
paper last week, and we're not
positive as to what happened (al-
though the possibility exists that
after writing it and copying it, we
didn't send it to The Star). So
much for writing it early! We do
better writing it at the last minute'
and rushing it directly to the fax
The-state's Annual -Report -to
parents went: out Friday by stu-
deitts.-I hope you got yours. It
deals with last school year, 1994-
95, but still deserves your looking
through it and questioning any-
thing you don't understand.
By the time you read this, se-
mester exams will be completed. I
hope your student took them se-
riously and tried his or her best. .
There have been'so many distrac-
Uons this year that it would be
tempting to blame poor perfor-
mance on those factors.
When : students return, on
January 8 (WHS) they will be
starting a new semester, 'with
new classes and a new schedule.
WHS will announce an "Open
House" as near the beginning of
the second semester as possible.
Parents will be invited to come,
talk with teachers, check sched-
ules, etc. We' need a good turn-
out of interested parents, since
this is a good time: for us to sur-

vey parents on some issues.:
rOne issue on which we would
like to have parental input is the
issue of more separation of the
middle schoolers from the high
school. We need to know whether
or not we should still pursue the
idea of building a separate facility
for middle school, as opposed to
sharing the same facility as the
high school. This issue has not
surfaced recently, but planning '
for the future requires knowing
what people want. Try to plan to
Each year the holidays seem
to be dampened by accidents and
tragedies involving students or'
former students of WHS, and this
.year has been no different. We all
share the losses, and offer our
condolences and prayers of sup- i
port to the families. To our stu-
dents, we ask again "Please be
carefuI;, especially during.the holi-
days-we care about each of
you." Driving, hunting, even
shopping is more dangerous than
ever during this period.
', Remember-don't celebrate
too, much or too early! And since
we may not be here to write an-
other column until after the holi-
days, WHS wishes you and yours
a very "Merry Christmas" and a
"Happy New Year!"

This week we would like to
feature our music department at
Faith Christian. Mrs. Michelle
Teat teaches all ages from the
three year old kindergarten class

through senior high. Students are
greeted with two quotes as they
walk into the music room: "God
gave us music that we might pray
without words", and 'Your life and
talents are God's gift to you, what
you do with them is your gift to
God". These give you an insight
into our emphasis on music.
All the music groups per-
formed during the Christmas sea-
spn. The two classes of recorders
played for the Senior Citizens and
for Bay St. Joseph Nursing Home..
Miss Katie Geoghagan played a
solo in the beginner group and
the advanced performers are
Rachel Geoghagan, Renee Vinson,
Jessica Tarpley and Rebekah
Peterson. On Tuesday afternoon
the Chorus performed a short
concert for the upper student
body. Amanda Haney, Lennon
Thiel and Mrs. Michelle Teat were
soloists. In addition to the chorus
Nicholas Blake played a violii,
and Jack Spencer gave a short
narration, 'The Shepherds Story",

nt'Is Tale

Faith Christian School
written by Amanda Haney. The
kindergarten and elementary
grades enjoyed the third grade
presentation of the Nativity with
the singing 'of traditional
Christmas carols.
Here are two articles from our
student newspaper.
Musical Notes
by Eroica Porter
Mrs. Michelle Teat is looking
forward to a great year with the
elementary school chorus, and
plans for them to be very busy
singing and learning many new
things.Miss Michelle plans for the
student to learn about the follow-
ing in her classes: theories, com-
posers, and instruments. Miss
Michelle plans to include some
fun things in her classes, like per-
formances in special events at
Singing through School
by Jack Spencer
This year, Chorus has
acquired seventeen members to
help praise the Lord. We have
seven sopranos, four altos, and
six tenors. It's the largest chorus
class ever in the history of Faith
Christian School. With this many,
members, Mrs. Teat says, '"We'll
be learning to sing parts." It is
going to be a great year for
Chorus. We at Faith Christian
wish our readers a Blessed
Christmas as we celebrate the
birth of our Saviour.

Rained Out, But "The Show
Must Go On"
Not one.to be thwarted by a
little rain, the third grades did
have to cancel their Christmas
play on Monday night, December
18, but they presented it on Tues-
day night, December 19. Keep in
mind that this was after they had
been on a field trip to the Marian-
na Caverns that same day!
Santa's Village
Thanks to the efforts: of the
WES P.T.Q. and lots of volun-
teers, the WES Santa Village was
once again a huge success. The
sleigh alighted on the stage and
with it came presents galore. The
man himself was here on
Wednesday. to have his picture
made with the young and the
young at heart.
Merry Christmas
On behalf of the entire staff
and faculty at WES, Mr. Kelley,
would like to wish each and every
one of you the merriest of Christ-
mases. As our preacher, Brother.
John Kramer, said on Sunday,
"Instead of rushing out and buy-
ing one more gift for someone
who doesn't need it, find someone
who does." Christmas is for shar-
ing, aid the joy comes with the
giving. Merry Christmas to one
and all! This column will resume.
in January.

displayed their true Christmas spirit. The classes of Cindy Phil-
lips, (third grade), DeEtta Smallwood, (fourth grade), and Sharon
Watson, (fifth grade), contributed money to buy toys for under-
privileged children in Gulf County. Together the three classes
collected over $400 and were able to purchase many nice gifts
for other children instead of exchanging presents among them-
