It's Easy To Find A Reason
LET US ALL BE THANKFUL. How many different ways can
you think of to make that statement? Certainly the thought is
uppermost in our minds as we pause for a day to give thanks for
whatever position we find ourselves in. No matter how bad we
may think our particular circumstances are, they could also be
And that isn't looking at our condition or position with a
"Pollyanna" attitude, either. That's the truth!
No matter how bad or how good a circumstance we are expe-
riencing right now, just give it a little thought and you will real-
ize they could be worse.
Especially here in the United States.
We moan and groan and complain about rising prices, the
crime rate, a king size [to us] drug problem, a lack of ability of
people to get along with each other and the list goes on and on.
CONSIDER WHAT YOUR situation would be if you lived in
Bosnia,.or Zaire, or even Russia, where nothing can be counted
on. In Bosnia or Zaire or many other places on this old Earth.
one can't even be reasonably assured of waking up on Thanks-
, giving day. Somebody, you don't even know who. could end your
life before the new day dawned.
Or, suppose you lived in some other place on Earth where
material things were cheap, but you didn't even have the price of
*a loaf of bread! Here in America, prices are high, but they're not
unreasonably so. At least we can still purchase food and shelter.
They are not unobtainable, such as so many places in the world.
OR SUPPOSE YOU didn't have good health, or your family
had deserted you, or your nation didn't officially believe in God?
You'd really have cause not to be thankful if you suffered from
any or all of these.
We live in a nation which gives us ALL sufficient reasons to
be thankful. And, really, we believe we all know it, too!
So today, whether your Thanksgiving dinner consists of a
can of pork and beans or the full traditional Thanksgiving feast,
let us all pause for a few moments to offer up thanks to God for
what we do have.
Remember, we are the only nation which celebrates Thanks-
giving, and we're the nation of people who most has cause to.
That should be reason enough to offer our thanks.
In God We Trust?
AMERICANS AREN'T THE only ones who protest at condi-
tions in their nation not being up to snuff. The people of India
are protesting, big time, over the fact that the Miss World pa-
geant is being held there. Bomb threats Ithis one seems to be
universal], court challenges, cow dung smeared on products of
sponsors, strikes and threats.
One man even burned himself to death in protest, for the pa-
geant bekhg-c6fidt-ted in-Ilndia. -- .'- .. .--- ..
.The reason for all the unrest is that the pageant violates In-
dian culture, dehumanizes women and wastes resources of the
WHEN WAS THE LAST time Americans rose up in mass
protest of an action which "violated our nation's culture"? Our
people didn't even give that treatment in opposition to the prac-
tice of abortion an action the Indians promote as a means of
birth control, by the.way. Nor do we actively protest women be-
ing degraded. Our military training centers are being investigat-
ed for the mistreatment of women, but not degrading. We sup-
port movies and activities which degrade women, including an
advertisement in'an area daily newspaper periodically inviting
all to come to a certain club and ogle a woman's large breasts.
Nothing seems to be demeaning or violates our culture enough
to encourage someone to make a human torch of himself.
WE'RE NOT ENCOURAGING anyone to torch himself over a
cause. To the contrary; we discourage it. But, Americans need to
express themselves negatively, strongly, to the plethora of unsa-
vory actions in our nation as these Indians have done if we are
to maintain our civilized status in the world.
At least, our people need to speak out against practices
which are not in keeping with our motto, printed on our money,
"In God We Trust". It's ironic that these actions exist, unsavory
as they are, to make the perpetrators money: the very medium
used for expressing that we are a nation which trusts God.

Jesse spent twenty-eight days
in the neonatal center at Sacred

first five he was in the Intensive
care unit. A nurse stood beside
him 24 hours a day. When he
would forget to breathe, as pre-
mature babies are wont to do,
she would gently place a hand
under him and shake him into

:That actually happened
about a month ago, now, and'
there are those of us who have
not. gotten over the shock it
caused us. Harry Lee actually did
it, after several years of being
ragged about his old pick-up
truck he drives and his "newer"
car which qualifies for an antique
tag. ':. : r':, ,, : :
The word I get is that when
Harry Lee would go out of town,
he would either bum a ride with
somebody else or he would rent a
car for the trip.
He never got tired enough do-
ing either to 'encourage him to'
buy a new car. It's been 37 long
years since he did that!
Of course. Harry 'Lee doesn't
have a wife to nag him until he
did buy a new car. If he had a
wife. I'm sure he could not have
resisted for the 37 years. No
woman in the world would stand
for riding in a car 37 years old
Just because her old man was too
tight to buy a new one.
COME TO THINK of it. that
might be the shove which pushed
Harry Lee into the ranks of all the
rest of us men who are having to
make car payments.
Tell me, Harry Lee. Are you
planning to get'married? Are you
engaged? If so, who's the lucky[?]
girl? Did she flatly refuse to go
through with it unless you
bought a new car?
All the national magazines for
a long period of time listed John
F. Kennedy, Jr., as the world's
most eligible bachelor. Well, John
F. broke the ice and tied the knot.
I have contended all along that
the world's most eligible bachelor
wasn't John F. at all! It was you.

Hello Gulf.County! ;
As you sit down to enjoy your Thanksgiving meal with your
family I hope you take a minute to remember that first
Thanksgiving and what was truly important about that day. It
was a time of making peace and enjoying the fellowship of
people so different from each other. Can you imagine the lan-
guage barrier, much less the difference in how they were
dressed but, they probably had the same hopes and dreams
for the future. We owe it to each other to get to know all of
our neighbors. I met Susan in the street after the
Homecoming parade. We didn't know each other at all but,
we found we have a lot in common. I hope that we can
become friends. There are a lot of people that we would prob-
ably be friends with if we took the time to get to know them.
I am not going to talk about roofing in this letter. I think this
should be a time to relax and enjoy the fruits of our labor. As
parents the next month will be a busy one. All of the hustle
bustle tires us out and makes us wonder why we go through
this every year. But, when you look at those little faces and
see the excitement, it brings out the child in all of us and
makes it all worthwhile. There is plenty of time for rest after
the Christmas season. I am sorry to bring all of this up before
vou have even had time to digest your Thanksgiving turkey,
but it just seems to get here so quickly afterwards.
Donna will be in West Virginia by the time you read this pro-
vided that she actually gets on the plane. After her flight,
there she may need a little time to settle down when she gets
back. As for my family, we will go to my sister's house in
Callaway and spend the day with our family. My mother
passed away five years ago so my sister Sandy keeps the tra-
dition going at her house. We will also go to Taft's parents for
supper. We will spend Friday at home trying to finish moving
in. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and
that you have as much as I do to be thankful for. Please go to
church somewhere this Sunday.

"This year's team reminds me
quite a bit of the 93-94 tearm--we
have very young point guards who
have no experience making the

defensively that we will need.
Secondly, even though we have
the best height we've had in quite
some time, we lack the rebound-
ers we've had recently that would
go get rebounds.
"And, of course we lack the
leadership and competitive fire
that our recent graduates gave
us. however, I feel that if our fans
will give this team both great sup-

learn and listen and get better

Views On Dental Healfti
FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.
Have you ever heard
someone, say, "My jaw is
killing me!" You might even
have had the problem your-
self. The pain can be excruci-
ating, like -.sharp stab, or
jist an ache. It usually occurs
in the area just in front of the
ear opening, and is particu-
larly painful on opening or
closing. It can hurt so much
that the sufferer wants to cry.
What is the problem? This
type of jaw problem is
referred to as the TEMPORO-
MANDIBULAR JOINT SYN-
DROME. For simplicity sake,
it is often called TMJ SYN-
The strange aspect of this
syndrome is that often aches
and pains in other parts of the,
body are also caused by an6
inflamed or pathologic jaw
joint. For example, head-;
aches, ear aches, ringing,
buzzing, clicking, popping,,
and scraping noises in the'
ears, stiff or aching neck or
upper back muscles, shoulder
pains, and other upper body/
neck/head problems have
been traced to primary prob-.
lems in the jaw joint itself.

There is still' no conclusive

fact, addictive behaviors tend to

personality traits and even some
biological factors that make one

Sin maintaining these addictions.
' These activities may be how you
have learned to manage stress
and stopping the behaviors will
probably require learning new
ways to cope. Whatever is under-

effective approach is contentrat-:

The Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission (GFC) is
launching a new program for
birdwatchers. They call it "Wings
Over Florida." The program
awards full-color certificates at
four achievement levels to birders
who submit their state lists of
Florida birds to the Commission.
"The purpose of Wings Over
Florida is two-fold: to ackn6wl-
edge the accomplishments of
Florida's birders and encourage
them to elevate their birding skills
to: the next level of achievement."
birding projects manager Alex-
ander Kropp said.
Wings Over Florida is part of
the Commission's efforts to pro-
vide new programs for Florida
birdwatchers statewide. Birders
represent a growing recreational
contingent and an important ally
in conserving Florida's wildlife,
A recent survey sponsored by
GFC estimates that 21 percent of
Floridians (almost 3 million peo-
ple) can identify 20 or more
species of birds. About twice that
number have participated in some
birdwatching activity in the past
Certificates are available at

Uncle Clevus "Does" (Laur at Large. j
Thrill Hill y Laura Rogers
There was a' bit of unfinished
construction at the. bottom of a
hill in our town of Mulberry. I'm
not sure What possessed some
road builder to ever do it. You see
the road started at the top of the
main road that brought folks to
our town. And then it went
straight down at a 90 ,degree
angle right into the Mulberry
River, unless, of course, you
veered hard into a small grove of
catalpa 'trees and blackberry
This' was about the only
source of fun in our small town
for the more oppositonal teenage
Sales, and some of their unwise
girlfriends. The idea was to get a,
souped-up mustang ,or some
other type of 'cool' car (think late
1960's) blast something like Eric
Clapton and Cream, and try to get
down that hill without having to
take a prolonged swim in: the
Mulberry River. No one made It.
After a while folks just lied
about it It became like the folk-
lore passed around at the Hoggly
Woggly. No one believed it. but
everyone enjoyed it and acted as if
they believed it. And after a little
longer the hill became a place to
take a real 'hot' date and 'park
and spark' as they called t. Thus,
the place became known as "Thrill
Hill" for more reasons than one.
My Uncle Clevus;'priir-to his
conversion, had a real wild side.-
He had talked for years about
"whupping" Thrill Hill on his
Harley motorcycle. He'd talk
about it at family dinners, and
even at family funerals. He'd talk
till folks started avoiding him. Till
one day he came back, bruised,
dirty and wild-eyed, covered with
catalpa worms and blackberry
juice and said he'd done
S twhupped" Thrill Hill.
'Course with such strong evi-
dence as he had, none of us

The American Association of
State Troopers, Inc. recently
awarded 19 Florida students with
$1,000 scholarships in recogni-
tion of their outstanding scholas-
tic achievements. The students
are sons and' daughters of active
and retired, members of the
Florida Highway Patrol who are
members of the association.
"The scholarship program is
just one more way AAST benefits
our member troopers," said
Tommy Moore, an active Florida
trooper and state director of the
AAST Florida Lodge. "The scholar-
ships help ease the financial bur-
den of troopers."
T 'o qualify for the :scholar-
ships, which are funded through
contributions received from the
public, each student is required
to be a high school graduate and
to have maintained a minimum
2.5 grade point average (4.0 scale)
at the most 'recent accredited
school attended. In addition, stu-
dents are required to submit a

us even more. This meant he was
truly up to' no good. But we
would have' to wait for his pay-

You see, Clevus subscribed to
the Confucius saying, "Beware a
smiling enemy." In our family the
saying had been modified to,
"Beware of a smiling Clevus."
C'.levus had given us fair warn-

worse the retribution. That day
his smile was as wide as a three

Now, I imagine most families

featjust to satisfy their lack of
belief. But our family was differ-
