of a half c


L, .. -d:


For The Most Part,
It Was A Positive Year


....- .




St. Joe Forest Products paper mill was sold to Florida
.Coast Paper Company, LLC, during 1996. -


It froze-twice-during the
first two months of the year.


Olympic torch passed thru
Wewa on its way to Atlanta.


For the most part, news happenings in 1996 were positive
items, rather than negative items. Of course there were items
which were stipulated as "bad news", but their number were
overshadowed by good news.
We've listed'all the headlines for the year, by months, which
rate all the way from sensational news for the county, to impor-
tant, to unusual ... all the way to bad news.
We've also highlighted what we, believe to be the 10 most im-
portant stories to be revealed during the past year. You may not
agree with our ratings, but that's alright, too. You're allowed to
have your own opinion as to what the ,10 most important stories
to happen during the year were.
Our selections and rankings as to order of importance are as
follows:
-MOST.IMdORP 'NTSTOR .:. ., ......
We believe you .will unanimously agree the consummation .of
the sale of St. Joe Forest Products Company and St. Joe Commu-
nications was the most important.. story of the year for Gulf
County.
The impact it has had on numerous families is undeniably'
the most important matter to happen to them during 1996. The
trauma and suspense the sale, along with Its happenings, has
had to the people kept them in suspense for most of the year.
The final settling down, the signing of labor contracts, the
changing over of the system, has left us with a sigh of relief, now
that it is over and we see that it was not as bad for our people as
it mlght have been.
NUMBER .2
The second most important story is actually a conglomeration
of stories, all having to do with our school system.
The first educational "happening" of importance was the an-
nouncement by Gulf Coast Community College of its intent to
build a Port St. Joe campus at the intersection of Garrison Ave-
-nue extension and Highway 98. The Warriner family has made
the land available and an architect has been hired to draw'thed
plans. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring.
The next thing is the School Board's decision to drastically
renovate the Port St. Joe Elementary School and passage of a
half-cent sales tax by the voters to pay for the work. This work,
too, should get underway early next year.
Another school-related :happening of importance was the
state's announcement that Gulf led the list of state-wide schools
in percentage of students to graduate and second lowest among
state-wide schools in students who drop out 'of school before
completion.
SWe can't leave out the fact that Port St. Joe High School is
among the top five in the state athletically, and received the
"Sportsmanship" award for the third straight year.
NUMBER 3
The third most important story will be relegated to the posi-
tion of most important story by some; the families involved.
We have listed the fact that only two people met death on
Gulf'County highways in traffic accidents.
Les Gortman of Wewahitchka was killed in an accident in the
vicinity of Honeyville and Robert M. Hobson, of Mexico Beach,
was killed in a head-on collision in the St. Joe Beach area.
NUMBER 4
The fourth most important story is the development of a ma-
rina here in Port St. Joe.
After nearly 40 years, of various-though vain-attempts to
construct a marina in Port St. Joe, it is finally becoming a reality.
A facility which will accommodate 159 boats is currently begin-
ning construction at the old Hess Oil facility site.
NUMBER 5
The bay is not polluted! After years of claims of how polluted
St. Joe Bay is, or was, a group of experts reporting to the newly,
organized St. Joe Bay Committee has officially stated that the
bay is not polluted, but is actually in good shape.

Senior Citizensl ve

Into New Building


Ending A Long
'Construction To


Wait For
Be Completed


The new year started with the Senior Citizens operating from
their brand new, long worked for, new building beside the Gulf
County Courthouse, just south of the Corrine Costin Gibson
public library building. The Senior Citizens finally moved their
operation into the new building over the holidays and set up
shop in their new headquarters.
The Senior Citizens began raising money for the new build-
ing some three years ago, and dreaming of a place they could
call their own, and called on the community to help. The entire
county responded in a generous fashion and construction was
started early in 1994. With Ike Mincy as prime contractor, the
building slowly took shape until the final days in 1996, when the
6500 square foot brick veneer building was finally completed.
"EVERYTHING IS FUNCTIONAL"
When The Star called the center early Monday morning to
verify the fact the center's move was completed, Mary Reeves,
who answered the phone, said, "We're finally in the building and
every service we offer is operating from our new site. Everything
is functional!" she said.
The center's new headquarters, located at 120 Library Drive,

It Ain't Right

"BLACK ENGLISH" AND ITS BEING taught in California
schools has been on the front pages for the past several weeks.
The decision of whether or not the teaching of the alternate lan-
guage, which should be considered as nothing more than slang,
has been attacked by such black notables as Jessie Jackson and
others.
Jackson labels, the alternative language as "demeaning" to
the black race,. even to be considered as a viable subject to be a
part of a school curriculum
We agree with Mr. Jackson. If we were black, we would con-
sider it an insult, not because the language isn't a sign of ignor-
ance, but because those to whom its teaching is aimed, are be-
ing considered as not being able to assimilate regular English.
ALL OF THIS REMINDS us of the resistance which churned
in our nation over the declaration of English as the official lan-
guage of the United States of America, an English-speaking na-L
tion. You would have thought the opponents of English as the
official language, had proposed that we should allow each ethnic
group, from.the Piaute Indian to the Chinese immigrant, to re-
main conversant in his own language while discussing legal mat-
ters.
The fight to declare English the official language of the Unit-
ed States isn't over yet, you know. The opponents of such a
movement are still very much alive and well.
PEOPLE STILL SAY "AIN'T" and "tisn't" and "you'uns" and
many other colloquial words and phrases, but that doesn't make
them correct or acceptable. It certainly doesn't mean we should
revert to teaching such flagrant misuse of the English language
and give it the air of respectability teaching it in school would. In
other words, it still doesn't make usage of such words correct
and acceptable, even though respectable people use them every
'day.
Neither should the slang used by black Americans be given
the aura of acceptability by teaching it as a course in school.
Black Americans, although many of them use the black
:slang language, do not agree with it being taught in school.
Neither do we!
Schools and the courses they teach, are meant to teach us
the correct manner of speaking, not bend to every colloquial use
of words people exercise.



Island For Sale

THERE'S A BAHAMIAN ISLAND for sale to anyone who
wishes to purchase a little solitude. You can have a 363-acre es-
tate, surrounded by water and susceptible to hurricanes for a
mere $3.5 million.
Don't everybody rush to buy this piece of real estate, lest you
get trampled in the crowds of prospective purchasers.
Why wasn't this piece of real estate put up for sale before
Christmas?.4It .wotrldhavesolved- the; question of, what to give
.that person' ,ioo :has everything.- And,' .t,,'comes completely
equipped! It has: its. own 2,400-foot airstrip, .boasts 15 acres of
sheltered harbor just the thing for parking one's yacht in out of
the weather] and comes complete with a house containing 3,200
square feet of living area.
What more could you want?
I wonder how far from-or how close to-a super market that
island is; or a movie theater, or a shopping center, or even a cor-
ner store. Do you suppose it even has a source of electric power,
or phone service?
We have our doubts. It sounds pretty isolated to us.
FOR THOSE WHO are always complaining about having
nothing to do, nowhere to go, no means of recreation furnished
them, not even a TV station; this island would be from nowhere-
ville. '
Come to think of It, this might just be why this particular is-
land is being offered for the bargain price of $3.5 million: you
know, just pocket change!
It seems to us that a person with the wherewithal to shell
out $3.5 million forjust such a choice piece of real estate as this
S island, would be something of an eccentric if he/she were to of-
fer to buy it.
There are people wanting to make a deal to purchase the is-
land though, and Just as we suspected, they are people who
don't want other people to see what they are doing! They are
people who make their own recreation!


I Hunker Down with Kes by Kesley Colbert


Forever On My Mind


Willie suggested a year end-
ing story today highlighting my
memorable moments from 1996. I
pondered on this idea for two
days and I couldn't come up
with one' personal 'memorable
moment" for the entire year. Now.
don't get me wrong -- 1996 was
very good to me (Listen, I'm still
here, and kicking that counts
for a lot) but that one very spe-
cial, remember it forever, Golden
Kodak, frozen In time, almost as,
if it took place in slow motion,
embossed on the brain with a


scalding branding iron moment
just didn't happen for me.
Let me give you some exam-
ples.
1953 First day. first grade.
We're "taking our shots." Mrs.
Braxton from Doctor Holmes' of-
fice Is giving you a shot in the left
arm for whooping cough or. dip-
theria or whatever arid some big
nurse I'd never seen before is
sticking us in the right arm for, I
figured, all the diseases not cov-
ered by Mrs. Braxton. Buddy Wig-
glelon is two people ahead of me.
They immunize him for life he
takes two steps and drops like a'
shot horse. LaRenda Bradfield is
.in front me. They stick her as Mr.
Featherstone drags Buddy to the
recovery room. LaRenda doesn't
make a full step before she crum-


bles. The big nurse turns and
says, "NEXT."
Folks, I had my first ever,
sure-nuff memorable moment!
1955 The annual third
grade Thanksgiving play. Miss
Belle saved the costumes from
year to year. We had pilgrims, in-
dians, John Smith, Pocahontas, it
was quite a production. I was one
of the three turkeys. We packed
out the auditorium. Bob Ed-
wards, who played the haystack
was just whispering to me that
Mary E. was a tad bit larger than
his idea of Pocahontas, when.
startled by the sudden appear-
ance of the funny dressed. white
people, she hopped backwards -
right off the stage and into the
lap of an also started J.A. Aber-
nathyl


I can still see the look in Miss
Belle's face as if the whole thing
Just happened this morning.
1958 Me and Leon and Da-
vid were down in that field by the
big ditch hoeing cotton. Daddy
was with us so the hoes were fly-
ing. There hadn't been so much
as a breath of air stir all morning.
Dave turned to me, without a let
up in his work. "You pitching to-
night?"
"Yeah, if this blister will let
me." We were Just making conver-
sation, passing a little time -
"Let me see it." Dad was care-
fully examining my throwing
hand. "You'd better go back to
the house for the rest of the day.
You need to get ready for the
game."
We'd never hedrd of quitting
work in the middle of the day!
And you talk about still seeing
the looks on some faces as I
made haste to vacate the bottom
forty Dad turned to my brothers,
"We'll be glad to do your share .

Thirty eight years later I can
walk by a hoe and suddenly get
the urge to toss a couple of in-
nings.
1959 Sixth grade. Radiator
cap broke off. Steam shot every-
where! Gene Fuller went under
Miss Mary Ann's desk and Su-
sie Cozart jumped through the
second floor window I will never
forget racing to that gaping hole
Just in time to see the not-
quite-perfect three point landing;
1964- Eighteen years of frus-
tration are swept away,in one,
thrilling moment as Tim McCarv-
er catches the last but of the last
game of the season and "The Car-
dinals win the pennant! The Car-
dinals win the pennant!" I'd wait-
ed my whole lifetime for that
memorable moment!
Also in '64 I saw the big fight
between Rebecca Whitehurst's fa-
ther and her boyfriend. Mr.
WhUehurst just drove into the
school parking lot, caught up
-with Turner Dotson as he came
out of the ag. building and the'
went to duking it out. 'Course, '1
must say,' BeckyTHad the propen-
sity for picking the worst guys.
Come to think of It. 1964 was
the year the chief of police came
out to the house to tell my Dad to
move his truck. It's a long story
and I won't bore you with the de-
tails but I will never forget the
chief coming across the front
yard, "Lonnie, you're going to
have to park your big rig some-
where else. You're blocking-"
"Aaron." Dad's voice was so
calm, like he was discussing the
weather or something, "You didn't
bring enough men to get me to
move that truck.. You'd better go
back and get some more help."
You'd never seen a guy back-
ing out of a yard so fast
I never realized how much
happened in '64. If Charlotte Mel-
ton had a'gone to the Baptist
Church hayride with me instead
of Martin Paschall, it could have

CHRISTMAS HAS come and
gone and I had a merry one. I
hope you and yours did, too. It
turned out to be a fine day after
threatening to rain and turn cold,
as you well know.
I received the obligatory new
shirt or two. They all fit so I didn't
have to exchange them. I didn't
get a single pair of underwear or
socks, however, not even a tiel
But I received a sufficiency, any-
how.
I received more than a suffi-
ciency in food, however. Between
Thanksgiving and Christmas, I .
gained 10 .pounds. Now. comes
the hard part; the shedding of
those 10 pounds. Putting them
-on was part .of what makes
Christmas merry. Taking them off
will require all my New Year reso-
lution power. It's also a part of
what makes February dreary.
But after a year of losing
what little bit of weight I lost, I
feel It's necessary that I do so
again.


NOW. I AM ready for some
blackeye ,peas and some corn-
bread, after:all that turkey, dress-
ing, ham, mince pies, fruit cake
and about a half dozen .varieties,
of cake which I didn't recognize.
; I wonder how that good, rich'
Christmas and Thanksgiving food
can taste so good and yet make
us so tired of it, all,at the same
time. It has a way of doing so,
though.
I can hardly wait until all the
left overs are gone and I can en-
joy a glass of milk with cornbread
crumbled up in it,' again. Milk
and cornbread are the perfect fol-
low-up to a month of rich eating.


WE HAD OUR usual family ,
Christmas Eve dinner at our
house. I forgot to take a count of
how many were there, but some
of the grandchildren were miss-
ing;
They have families of their
own, now, and at least two were
visiting their wive's families, one
was stationed in. Germany and..
one spent the Christmas, holidays,.,,
at his own home..It's hard to tray-,
; el with small .children. Two more,4
were newly married and their par-
ents went'.to .see them, rather
than them having to come here.-. ."
Our family is beginning tot


scatter and it will probably take
something like a family reunion
to get us all back together at the
same time again. So our Christ-
mas will have a little different fla-
vor from now on.
It was enjoyable while' the
whole immediate family .could
show up at our house on Christ-
mas Eve for as long as it lasted.

MY BROTHER-IN-LAW aiid
.his wife and four toy poodle
house dogs came to spend Christ-
mas with us. So as you can see,
we had an interesting time of it at
our house. Every time one of the'
kids would arrive whom the dogs
were not familiar with, those dogs
would raise a caterwauling of
yapping until they realized every-
thing was all right..
We -were all good friends by
Sthe time thei day was ovei-. The
dogs knew everybody and every-'
-.body knew the dogs.
My brother-in-law is the type
which can't sit still, so he brings


his tools and work clothes with
him and spends his-time, here go-
ing around repairing all that
needs fixing around the house. I
get a handyman's service for a
full day for a couple of night's
room and board.
Of course, I have to follow his
every step and "help" him do all
those repairs.
Everything is functioning
well, now. All the sticking doors
are repaired, all the light switches
functioning well, the drains are
- all un-stopped, even all the hing-
es are well oiled. We're all set un-
.til next Christmas, when, I am
Assure, several other things will be
out of order or not functioning
properly. I hope so because he
will be miserable while he is here
If there's nothing for him to flxl

BY THE TIME you read this I
will be shifting around in my re-
cliner, getting comfortable for the
bowl games. I'm going to watch
them every one. The only ones I


will miss will be those being
broadcast simultaneously on two
different networks and then I will
be "channel surfing" furiously, in
order to keep up with what's hap-
peiing.
Come to think of it, I had bet-
ter buy a new battery for my
channel changer to have on hand
should the battery decide to give
up the ghost while right in the
middle of bowl heaven.
A day of bowl games and a
bowl full of blackeye peas, a piece
of cornbread, and I'll be set for
the day.

IN THE MEANTIME, I'm go-
ing to do my very best to have a
full and happy New Year, striving
to stay healthy and remain pros-
perous, and I sincerely hope you
do too, each and every one of you.
It has been a fine year, just
passed, for us. We have enjoyed
every minute of it;. especially
those minutes we spent in taking
a trip or two.

Stokoe, center director said. "We even have an operating kitchen
so organizations can prepare food for an eating meeting," Stokoe-
said.
The Senior Citizens center already has an organization meet-.
ing in the new building, according to Stokoe. The AARP organi- -
zation has already scheduled its monthly general meetings at
the location, as well as the regular sessions of its board of direc- :
tors.
ONLY $54,000 STILL OWED ON STRUCTURE
The director went on to exult over the fact that only $54,000
is still owed on the new center. 'That speaks well for the gener-
ous support we received from the public, all through the two
year construction period.". he said. "Of course, we are still ac-
cepting donations to help make payments on this small debt
which we still owe," he continued.
As with every move, this one wasn't without last minute
problems and needs. Stokoe said the move couldn't have been
facilitated so smoothly and quickly without the. help of several
organizations and firms in the community. "Gulf Forestry Camp
did most of the heavy work of physically moving our equipment,"
Stokoe said. "In addition. St. Joe Natural Gas and St. Joe Com-
munications expedited the hooking, up and moving of our gas
service and telephone lines; Duren Piggly Wiggly helped with
needed food items; Ike Mincy was on the site to take care of any
small problems with the building and Kirk's Ice Company made
ice available to us and the moving team," Stokoe said.
Stokoe also expressed appreciation to Bill Quaranta and his
crew for installing the roof on the new center.

Sto play outside and be a' child

Army Ist Sgt. Royal Fennell,
son of Eva M. Fennell of 302
Avenue E., Port St. Joe, is doing
his part to help maintain peace in
Bosnia. And although the war
there is for the time being over, he
carries a gun and ammunition.
Just outside his fortified camp,
neighboring Bosnians peacefully
wander through the city looking to
buy food for the day or find need-
ed supplies. Sandbagged bunkers
and sharp concertina wire sur-
round his daily environment as he
wears a protective helmet and
body armor.
Fennell and nearly 20,000
American soldiers are there; to
help maintain peace something
this country hasn't seen for years.
Based on ethnic and religious dif-
ferences, a totally devastating civil
war tore this country, and its peo-
ple, apart.'With the efforts of the
American and multi-national
forces known as IFOR, the
Implementation' Force, Bosnians
are slowly piecing back together
their homes and way of life.
"I live and work at a camp
that's located in the ,Zone 'of
Separation here in Bosnia. As the
company first sergeant, I deal
with all matters concerning my
soldiers and officers. I'm also
responsible for all administrative
actions, supply operations, re
supply of my company while here
in Bosnia, and most of all, keep-
ing my soldier's focus on situation
awareness and getting them home
safely to their families ,ndl oyed
ones," Fennell said.

"Life here in Bosnia has been
difficult for many of my soldiers
and their family members at home
because of the separation. I'm
truly proud of what my soldiers.
company and battalion have done
here, especially being that we've
helped bring peace to Bosnia.
Sure my soldiers didn't under-
stand why we had to come here.
but after seeing the conditions the
Bosnians were living in and seeing
what we've done for them, they
now better understand." Fennell
said.
Considering the fact that
many modern-day conveniences
don't exist for these soldiers, life
here isn't that bad. With few
exceptions, nearly every soldier
sleeps in a bed or on a cot, has
hot food, and showers as often as
necessary. Most camps have
portable gyms and workout facili-
ties established in a designated
tent or building. Morale facilities
have books to read. Armed Forces

candy and soft drinks and at
some facilities amenities such as

PAGE 6A THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JAN. 2, 1997


1996..
NUMBER 6
Good news to people'living in
the Ward Ridge vicinity was the
decision by the City Commission
to extend water and sewer servic-
es to that subdivision as well as to
the planned Gulf Coast Commu-
nity College .building site with
construction to begin early next
year.
NUMBER 7
Another bit of good news to
come in 1996, was the decision
by the City of Mexico Beach to
join a Bay County consortium to
build a central sewage treatment
plant and provide sewage collec-
tion service to the City, of Mexico
Beach.
Though this decision wasn't
met without vigorous opposition,
the City Council. bit the bullet
and approved the matter as being
of utmost importance to the fu-
ture of the City.
NUMBER 8
Die-hard Democrats won't
agree that this deserves a spot in
our most important stories of the
year, but they will have to agree,
it at least made history!
.Gulf County had its first Re-
publican primary in its history-
before or after it was divided from
Calhoun County.
The county has had lone Re-
publican candidates for various
offices, but it had never experi-
enced a Republican primary be--
fore.
NUMBER 9
Although this. Sstoiy had no
lasting affect on the county, its
importance is undeniable. The
Summer Olympics torch passed
through Wewahitchka, on its trip
to Atlanta. to light the torch for
the summer games.
NUMBER 10
The final story has an impact
on Gulf County, historical In na-
ture, but also of importance to
the maritime traffic in and
around the county.
The number 10 story in im-
portance had to do with the Coast
Guard closing down the Cape San
Bias lighthouse after 111 years of
operation. The light is still.stand-
ing, but the reflector is covered
over and the light out of service.

Gleanings


From

My Garden


By Stephen D. Cloud, Pastor of First Baptist Church, Lillian, AL

The author, Stephen D. Cloud, is a native of Port St. Joe, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Cloud.


Tidbits

These are little tidbits. Some
I've read. Some I've heard. And
some I just thought. None of them
are necessarily original ideas--
"When it comes to the
.Browns, I'll take Charlie over
Murphy any day."
"Babel is where everyone is
talking, nothing is heard, and
nobody is understood. There is no
such place in the Kingdom of
God."
"There is no such thing as
Baby Greek, minor surgery, or
half-truths."
"A bad day playing golf beats
a good day at work any time. Why
do they call it golf? All the other
four letter words were taken. Golf
Is much like life, the minute you
thinkyou have it made, you're out
of the fairway and into the rough.
SThe fishing is always good..
Sometimes the catching is not so
hot"
"Integrity may assume leader-
ship, but it may also renounce
leadership. When the masks come
off, arid we see ourselves as we
really are, we can stop competing
for vain and stolen goods; Grace,
is always a possibility, but it is
not. always healing. To talk of a
private integrity and a public one
is to lose all Integrity. If we begin-
to say we have Integrity, we most
surely have lost.what little we
had."
-The church is wherever the
wear and waste of human misery
is being reversed. Do churches
ever fight over anything other
than money? Whatever became of
arguing over theological or social
issues? Do churches seriously
discuss such matters anymore? A
committee is a group of the
unknowing, who try to do the
impossible for the ungrateful. I
don't believe iinorganized religion,
that's why I'm'a Baptist."
."To spend the day with a
preschooler and .see things


through their eyes Is to see the
real world. Being a teenager is not
a disease."'
"A mature faith is one that
recognizes that there is often a
great gap between what we say we
believe and how we live our lives.
A mature faith also resolves to
bridge this chasm between our
ideas and our actions. How you
live is your real theology.
Listening to how we pray and
observing how we worship are
true reflections of what we believe


about God."
'The people who make us
angry control our lives. To be a
critical thinker is a blessing and a,
burden. To be tough-minded, ten-
der-hearted, even-handed, and
tlick-skinned is the delicate bal-
ance necessary for life in the
church. Excessive cynicism is the
shadowy side of an over inflated
ego.".
"God is not offended when we
ask, 'why?' I'm glad God does not
give us what we deserve."

Dear Counselor:
I have a real problem control-
ling my spending. It has gotten to
the point that it is causing prob-
lems In my marriage. My husband
has put me on budget after bud-
get, but I can never stick to them
and he doesn't know the half of it,
I have credit cards that he doesn't
know about. Half the time I don't
even use what I buy, it is Just that
I have to buy something!
Afterwards I feel very depressed
and ashamed for the trouble I am
causing. We are getting further
and further into debt. What can I
do to control these spending
binges before they ruin my mar-,
riage and my credit?
Signed.
Shop-a-holic
Dear Shop-a-holic
A budget is a great idea 'for
those of us who have a tendency
to spend beyond our means.
However, when spending begins to
have a negative effect on other,
areas of your life, such as the,
marital difficulties you are
describing, it could be a symptom
caused by a deeper: underlying
problem. Just as a person may
turn: to a chemical substance to
escape their reality, the "high"
and feeling of power that some
individuals gain from shopping
may be their way of filling a void
in their life; unresolved issues


that require closer examination.
The problem that you have.
described is a fairly common
issue, so you are not alone. It may
be beneficial for you to seek pro-,
fessional help -to assist you in;
Identifying the unaddressed
Issues that may be leading up to'
your overspending. The Gulf
County Guidance Clinic. Inc. has
a staff of qualified counselors who
can help you gain more insight
into your behaviors and more con-
trol over your life and your spend-
ing. Since your marriage is being:
affected, it would be a good idea
for your husband to seek counsel-
Ing with you as well. After you
have a better understanding of
the causes of your behavior, then
you will be better equipped to
design a budget, and more impor-
tantly, to stick to it! Good luck
and please don't hesitate to. call
the Guidance Clinic at 227-1145.

Sjacey Anders.

Resolutions

The New Year is upon
us. In Colossians 1:3 & 4
we find, "We always
thank God, the Father of
our Lord Jesus Christ,
when we pray for you
because we have' heard of
your faith in Christ Jesus
and of the love which you
have for all the saints."


A good resolution for every Christian is a
sense of renewal for our individual and corpo-
rate prayer life. Sometimes we get lax in our
prayer life. Repetition sometimes dulls our
response.
I am always excited when I go to. the Lord in
prayer. We need to consider priorities before we :
speak to the Lord in prayer. At times I consider
the order of my prayers, and other times spon-
taneity takes precedent.
The important thing is that our prayer life be,
constant. Let's resolve to speak daily to the Lord
in prayer in 1997;

BEST FOOT FORWARD
By: Dr. Stephen J. Gross, Podiatrist


When A Tendon Fails
Ordinarily, people aren't
aware of the posterior tiblal ten-
don and the role it plays In using
the feet. Connected at one end to
the back of the tibia or shinbone,
the tendon winds around the
ankle bones and its other end
connects to small bones of the
foot... *
injury. inflammation, obesity
and other stresses can weaken
the tendon and cause it to rup-
ture. When that happens there is
sudden pain and swelling in the
ankle and gradually the foot's


arch sags.
Surgery 7
traditionally
has been the'
means of per-
manently correcting the rup-
ture, but some cases can benefit
from more conservative treat-
ment that employs orthotic shoe'
inserts to improve the foot's
function. -
