Wewa Christmas
Parade Dec. 15th
:: Wewahitchka will hold its
annual Christmas Parade on
Saturday, December 15. The
parade has a reputation for being
one of the finest in the area.
SIt will begin at 5:00 p.m. CT,
at the intersection of River Road
and Highway 71, and will run,
northward through the city to
North Court Street. Come enjoy,
the many entries,' including the
Shnners' entourage.


St. Joe was to transform the com-
pany from an old, regional indus-
trial conglomerate into a growth
oriented real estate company. I
think we've been successful. In
some ways, that transformation
took longer than I would have
liked, but the fact is, now we are
well positioned to create some
Very special places that will reflect
the unique character of Northwest
Florida.
S: The thing that hasn't changed
over this past five years, though,
is our commitment to communi-
ties across the region. We know
we have a unique opportunity in
Northwest Florida, but we also
understand the great responsibil-
ity we have as well.
There are people in Gulf
County who question your
commitment. What would
you say to the people who
think St. Joe has now been
transformed into a short-


Hospital Drops Blue Cross




Providers Reimbursement Contract "Won't Pay the Bills" Steeley


Part 1
'As insurance premium costs
continue to skyrocket at an astro-
nomical rate, one would think,
increases in medical costs are due
in a large part to those increases.


Hugh Steeley
While this may be the case, Hugh
Steeley, 'owner of Gulf Pines
Hospital. is having a hard time
understanding how that works'in
the case:of Gulf Pines Hospital. -
SGulf Pines' staff has been try-,
ing to iron out a new insurance


reimbursement contract with
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida
as their 10-year service provider
contract comes to a close.
According to, that contract. Gulf
Pineswas receiving approximate-
ly 22 t from Blue Cross for each
dollar they were billed by the hos-
pital.
"We can't provide quali t care
for our patients at this level of
reimbursement," said Steeley.
He went on to explain that, the
rate Blue Cross is paying is less
-than the'amount of return needed
Sto break even. "I can't pay payroll
none-the-less make a profit at
these rates," he explained.
Gulf Pines Hospital is cur-
rently under Chapter 11 reorgani-
zational bankruptcy and, like
many small community hospitals
throughout the country, is strug-
gling to make ends meet.
"Needless to say we can't get out
from under it (bankruptcy) if we
can't collect enough from insur-
ance reimbursements to pay for
services rendered." Steeley point-
ed out.
'They (Blue Cross) were pay-
ing less than half of what the
Medicare rate is." he added.
Indeed this does seem to be a
disturbing trend among ..area,
rural or community hospitals.

week defended the company's
position, stating that they (Blue

called for.
Dr. Barry Schwartz, Vice
President of Care and Nutritional

nng. Because we


SWe're different in a number of
ways. We don't think in terms of
one-time developments. We think
in terms of how this entire region
-can be better. To get the most out
of our projects, we have to be con-
cerned with the overall quality of
life in the region. That means
improving the roads, the schools,
the health care in the region.
These are the kind of things that
will improve the overall quality of
life for everyone. And these are
the things we are working on right
now in Gulf County.
I think a second difference is
our commitment to quality. We
want each of our projects to be
the best of its kind. Our commit-
ment to quality adds value not
only to a particular project, but,
also to the rest of our land.
A third difference is our
respect for local communities and
the environment. When we create
a new place, we want it to be
authentic. We want it to fit in with
the local character, to seem as if it
has always belonged there. To
achieve this, we have to listen to
local communities, understand
what makes their community spe-
cial, and then do our best to bring
out those special qualities as we
go about our business. It's the
same reason we work hard to pre-
serve the natural environment in
the places we develop.
One way we have demonst-at-
ed that commitment to the
community is through the cre-
ation of the Northwest Florida
Improvement Foundation. I know
of no other developer who has
made this kind of commitment.
This foundation was created by
St. Joe and is funded by sales at
Arvida communities like
WindMark.
Already in Gulf County, you
have seen the benefits of this
foundation's work. Tens of thou-
sands of dollars have gone to the
public school system in Gulf
County including $25,000 for the
Gulf County Education
Foundation. The foundation is
providing another $25,000 for the
public library in Wewa. Strong
sales at WindMark can bring
more benefits like these to the
community.
(See INTERVIEW on Page 10A)


was not completed, so it would be
premature to comment before the
testing had been totally evaluat-
ed. ... ..
The presentation will be made
in such a manner as to review the
test findings and share the data
with the public. Allen and
Smallwood agreed that once the
results were outlined there would
likelybe discussions on where the
process would go from that point.
If environmental issues are
revealed, possible discussions of
plans foi- future action that might
be necessary may be brought up.
Steve Hamilton, Regional
Environmental Service Manager


for Smurfit-Stone Contaiher
Company, was quoted' in the
October 4th edition of The Star
stating, "We understand the
importance of this property to the
community and to the economic
future of Port St. Joe. Stone is
committed to completing its por-
tion of the testing process in a
'timely manner and moving for-
ward with recommendations for'
any necessary further action at
the former paper mill."
The county commission will
meet Tuesday, December 11th at
its meeting room in the Gulf
County AdminiStration Building
at the Gulf County Courthouse
complex at 6:00 p.m., ET.


Get Busy Writing

Kids...Santa's

Packing His Sleigh!

A mail delivery service, with connections
direct to Santa at the North Pole, has been
placed at The Star (209-211 Reid Avenue)
for kids to mail those all important wishful
letters-and now's the time to get started
writing yours!

The letters will be sent to Santa, who
will personally answer all correspondence
which contains a self-addressed stamped
envelope. The letters will then be forward-
ed to The Star for printing in our Christmas
issue (December 20th).

The deadline for mailing Santa letters to
receive a reply from the jolly old gentleman will
be 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 17th. So, get
busy writing kids!


Representatives from :Stone
Container Company. the St. Joe
Company, and the State of Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) will give a public
report on testing results from the
old mill site and out-parcel during
a portion of next Tuesday's.
December 1 th, county commis-
sion meeting.
Testing of the sites was com-
pleted several weeks ago when
samples were taken from the mill
site, the old impoundment area,
and thi-ee sediment samples from
St. Joseph Bay. Groundwater,
sampling wells were dnlled at
both landward sites--five on the
mill complex and four at the
Impoundment area owned by St.
Joe Company.
The testing was conducted
during mid-October arid has been
,il the process of being analyzed
and evaluated by DEP-approved
consultants hired by the compa-
ny. During the same'time span,
DEP has taken split samples and
conducted their independent
analyses at separate testing facil-
ities.
Neither Ferrell Allen (Stone
Container Company) or Clay
Smallwood (St. Joe Company)
commented on what the prelimi-
nary results indicated. Both noted
that the final phase of evaluation

because we are charged with
increasing the value of these
assets, we must take- the long-
term view. St. Joe is' not a typical
developer. There is no other com-
pany that I know of that has the
kind of long-term opportunity we
have. We own too much land in
Gulf County and across
Northwest Florida to consider
only the short-term.
We know that what we do
today will affect our ability to
prosper tomorrow. We have a
strong incentive to do quality pro-
jects because if we do the 'first
project right it's going to make the
next project that much more valu-
able. We want Gulf County to be
the best it can be-that's how St.
Joe will create the most value for
our shareholders. We're going to

Ahead of the Pack


Recycling $$$ Makes


Good For All

One of the secrets of:the trade is to go back to previous issues
of the paper and review what was printed a year ago in order to
refresh your memory and stay on track with what you need to do
in the current year.
There are a few pitfalls to that strategy. One being if you for-
got something a year ago, looking at back issues will only help
you remember to forget or overlook it again. This happened over
the Thanksgiving weekend when we failed to report an annual
event we should have publicized. No one has said anything about
it yet, so I'm not going to fess up and maybe I'll get it right next
year, if someone reminds me.
One of the items that caught my mind as I reviewed several
back issues from Thanksgiving until after New Year's last. year
was an editorial I had written after Christmas. The column talked
about how my wife, Shirley, and I had managed to do all of our
Christmas shopping without leaving town.
We did not buy all of our Christmas items from local mer-
chants, but we did buy the bulk of what we purchased locally. If
my memory is correct, we did purchase a,few items from Cabela's
outdoor catalog.
There is a good reason why I purchase most of what I buy
locally-the people/merchants in our coverage area are the ones
who support me. They purchase advertising, printing, office sup-
plies, and other various products at The Star which allows me to
pay employees, make, equipment and building payments, and. of
course, eat (not necessarily in this order of importance).
The way I ,see it, it's in my vested interest to do business with
the folks who do business with me. What kind of message would
I be sending to them if I took theii money to provide a service for
them, then turned around and spent that money somewhere else
for services they could have provided to me.
These are the-same merchants who support our little league
teams and contribute to various not-for-profit organizations.
They're the same people we call on to contribute to our needs
when we're down on our luck or just need a helping hand.:
They're the same ones we call on when the'football team needs
support, the cheerleaders need uniforms, little.-league football
needs sponsors, the church groups need help sponsoring a trip or
'most any other imaginable need.
4 How many times can you think of that local merchants have
not given, in some cases till it hurts, to help with needs iri the,
community? I can't think of a time. ,
Now, I'm fully aware that there are items that are not available
to be bought locally, but the bulk of what a person needs is avail-
able from merchants irn ur immediate area.
I've shared with both of our local hardware owners how when
I recently started laying out plans for a building project, I ran a
budget by using a catalog from a "chain" store's advertisement
that was in one of the area's daily papers. After which; I called the
local hardware to get prices on lumber and guess what? ... The
local hardware were much less for the same building materials.
Now, I know this is not the exception. In most cases, local
merchants are either very close to or charge less than competitors
From surrounding communities for the same identical merchan-
dise.
As you prepare to buy gifts this holiday season, give these
merchants a chance to serve you one more time. You might find
out that they can also.save you a few bucks and a lot of valuable
time as you enjoy visiting with your friends and shopping in the
Gulf County/Mexico Beach area.
Another great gift idea is "Gulf County Dollars-" They can be
purchased and given as giftsfor that person who's hard to buy for
and then used as, currency by the recipient.
Remember that slogan.. ."Support Our Local Merchants-
They Support You!"


I remember the I'ear Mlary
Emma Bookins decided to put her
tree up two ,weeks before
Christmas. It near about caused a
scandal!
SIt came to pass on this wise ..

Mlarn Emma had been a little
different ever since grade school. .I
noticed it right off! Way back in the
second grade she was cutting her
cornbread in half and piling col-
lard greens in the middle like it
was a peanut butter and, jelly
sandwich! Some days she would
run on and on about de-ticking a
dog or ordering White Rose salve
out of a catalogue or how to make
sassafras root beer .. the next
day she might walk right by you
without even as much as a howdy
do! J '
I asked her brother, Vernon


Charles. about it one time, he just
smiled and allowed that, "Mary
Emma slept crossways in the bed
and that had lateralized her think-
ing to-some e.'tent." I couldn't tell
if he was putting me on or not!
I can tell you this. growing up
Mary Emma was pretty much set
,on doing, things her way. She was-
n't pushy mind you. And you did-
n't have to agree with her. Just
:don't get in her .way! I smiled and
waved and, spoke ... if she did.
We got alongjust fine.
I was ii study hall when I got
the word. Mrs. Ingram stepped out
in the hall, Yogi leaned over and
whispered, "Mary Emmasays she
is going to cut her Christmas tree
this afternoon."
"What in the world is she going
to do that for! It's ohlythe 10"'! The
dang tree will'turn brown and the
needles will, fall off before
Christmas gets here!"
"Her parents will never let her
do it." Ricky, Gene said it right out
loud. "Mr. Bookins ain't about to
have to cut and haul two trees-"
"KESLEY, if it is so interesting
that you boys have, to shout to


each other, I'm sure you won't
mind shanng it with the rest of the
class!" Mrs. Ingram was stanng me
down.
Why is it always me? Nlary
Emma gets a wild hair and I'm the
one foing to be punished for it!
Listen, if she starts this Chnstmas
stuff early, it's liable to get out of
hand .. .
She put that tree up in her big,
front picture window that very
afternoon. The whole town was
aghast!
J. A. Abernathy's Hardware
didn't even have their Christmas
merchandise out on display. The
town square wouldn't be decorated
until the weekend before the 25h.
The "Chnstmas In Our Hometown":
sign was still wrapped up behind
the giant cardboard, pumpkin in
the spare room in the back of the
volunteer fire hall.
Red Melton over at the City
Cafe hadn't changed out to
Christmas music on the jukebox.
As a matter of fact. Red's wife was
still serving up a turkey and dress-
ing special that had been running
since the day after Thanksgiving!


There wasn't a tint of fake
snow in one store window in tow-n!
The Perry Como Special wouldn't.
be on for another week! The Coca-
Cola man hadn't brought the cal-
endars! That little Norelco Santa
hadn't even sledded across our
T.V. screen one time!
Mary Emma had thrown' the
whole schedule off kilter. Miles
Featherstone stretched his hands
out, 'seeking the warmth of
Woodrow Kennonrs stove in the
back of the Dry Goods store,'and
allowed' you couldn'tt start
Christmas before it got here!
Lerten Gooch blamed it. on'the
Democrats. "I told you what would
happen if we elected Kennedy!"
It never dawned on me that a
president, especially one who
wouldn't- take office until next
January, could affect a holiday
thdt quickly. Daddy had always
cut our tree a couple of days before
Christmas. WVe spent the night
before Chnstmas Eve hanging sil-
ver icicles, stringing popcorn, and
sitting out candles. It wasn't a big

A Christmas Celebration As Fit As There Is Anywhere!


'I HAD, A PIECE OF fan mail'
waiting for me when I came to
work Thursday morning from the
former Judy Fensom, Judy
[whose last name is Sanders]
lives in Fort Walton Beach. Her
address-for any of her former
classmates who wish. to. get in
touch with her-is Post Office
Box 2529.
I get letters quite often. It lets
me know if there is still anyone
out there reading this blurb after
many years.
Judy remembers the old6 P6ort
Inn burning back in the 40s and
the water heater going off like a
rocket; or at least she says her
husband-does! Like .so many
other spectators at the spectacle,
he couldn't figure which way to
run in order to get out of the way
when it came down.

I READ IN LAST week's
paper where, it was time for the
annual Christmas parade last
Saturday, Deceimber 1.


The Christmas parade has
long been an important event in
Port St..Joe. If my memory serves
me correctly, Port St. Joe was the.
first community in this vicinity to
have a Christmas parade. Pana-
ma City was one' of the earlier
ones, but I think:I'm correct: in
giving the lead to Port St. Joe.
Those were.th6 days when the
American Legion was active in the
community,, with Emmett Daniel
as the ramrod of the group.
Emmett always saw that the
American Legion had a genuine-
built-from-the-ground-up float.
He' g6t his membership strung
out and they came up with a fab-


ulous float.
For several years they would
begin work a week or two before
the parade, get a building and -
hammer and saw away until they
came up to their expectations
with their'product. .
Orie year they built a. minia-
ture destroyer on a truck.
You couldn't see the truck,
but you could sure see' the
destroyer. It was complete with a
crew of men on board and had a
full complement of running
lights.
'The only mistake they Jmade
was that it wouldn't fit under the
signal light which formerly hung


in the middle of Reid Avenue and
Third Street.
Too late to change it now!
So the man at the controls of
the boat simply steered it to one
side of the light, with the mast
just inches from hitting the wire
which held the, light up [after a
man with a long pole shoved the
wire up as high.as he could]. *
Every float builder, since that
time, has measured the distance
they needed to clear the light.

THERE WERE MANY other
fabulous floats built for the
parades, too numerous to men-
tion.
St. 'Joe Paper Company
always had a beautiful float in
the parade, although they weren't
eligible for the prize money.
Every organization which was
entering a float stayed up late the
night before putting the finishing
touches on their creations.
There will be many organiza-


tions and clubs building floats
this year, too. [Actually, they have
already built them and disassem-
bled them by' this time.]
Activity at Christmastime
goes.way back in Port St. Joe.
Even, before .the annual
Christmas, parade was initiated
by the old Merchants Association,
there was an activity at Christ-
mas promoted for the children of
the community.
The Rotary Club used to
make up 1,500 bags containing
fruit, candy, and a toy to be
handed out at the annual Christ-'
"mas tree program.
The Rotary Club members
would get together at an empty
building the night before and
make up the sacks. They'd'get
strung out in assembly line fash-
ion and fill the sacks to be hand-
ed out.
The day of the parade, they
would get together in a small
parade and tour all through the
city with Santa on the rear of the


old open Ford fie trick as a sig-
nal for all the k s to gather up,
:and then the sacks would be
handed out.
It was a good time for the
Rotarians as well as the kids.

NOW, PANAMA CITY,
Apalachicola, Wewahitchka and
Every town in the Panhandle puts
on a Christmas parade. The only
trouble the communities have is
finding a'date that doesn't con-
flict with their neighbors.
Christmas 'is well taken care
of in the Panhandle of Florida!
As 'it is throughout the
nation! .
Just last nigltt, NBC featured
the lighting of the Christmas tree
in' Rockefeller Center in New
York. The show featured a lot of
talent, but I'll bet they had no
.better time than the people of
Port St. Joe had with their home-
grown product-even if all the
"talent" sang their songs in a rec-
ognizable manner.

Phones Help Gulf's Seniors


Gulf County Senior Citizens
Association director Jerry Stokoe
reported to members of the Port
St. Joe Rotary Club Thursday that
cellular phones donated by the
club were providing a great ser-
vice to senior citizens.
Twelve phones were donated-
to the organization by the Port St.
Joe Rotary club to be used as
emergency communication by the
program and its service group.
Stokoe said ten of the phones
have already been placed in ser-
vice throughout the county.
*Two phones have been
placed with senior citizens for
medical or other emergencies,
providing security and saving over
$300 per year.
*Three homemakers that
work. in and around the
Wewahitchka area have phones in
use. They noy have a means to
make emergency calls for their
customers' or their own emer-
gency needs.
*Two phones are kept in the
M eals on Wheels vehicles in Port
St. Joe and Wewahitchka.

What Do We Want
To Become?
We Can Plan the Future of Gulf
County
For the past couple of years
we have all been hearing that
change is coming to Port St. Joe
and Gulf County. The closing of
the paper mill was the beginning
of a new era for this undiscovered
area of the Florida panhandle.
Sometimes it takes outsiders to
help the local population see what
a natural gem they have and peo-
ple have recognized what a unique
and pristine area Gulf county is:
It will take the cooperation of the
long-time residents and the relo-
cated population to preserve what

they both treasure.
What makes this area so spe-
cial and what must we preserve?
It is the combination of natural
beauty and residents that thrive
on a quality of life that cannot be
found in most urban living areas.
We have beaches, rivers, bays,
lakes and waterways surrounded
by forests. We have abundant
wildlife-fish,, birds, shellfish. and
many species of animals-all
native to this area. We have com-
munities that still have small
town charm; small locally-owned
businesses- and friendly, caring
people. This is what:we must pre-
serve-our natural resources and
our small t6wn personality.
Growth 'is coming to this
area-we all-can see that. More
tourists are "discovering' Gulf
County. Travel writers are coming
to write about this area, which
will bring even more visitors. New
developments in this area are
being advertised nationally and a
larger airport is in the plans for
Panama City.
This has already created some
issues. The location of Highway
98 is a very sensitive issue, to
many county residents. Land
prices on the beaches and other
waterfront areas are skyrocketing.
This has caused some tremen-.
dous jumps in property tax bills.
Increasing property values, will
move inland as this area grows
and property tax issues will soon,
face a larger portion of the popu-
lation.
The biggest challenge Gulf
County now faces is what choices
to make. What do wve want to pre-
serve? It is like we arereading one
of those "choose your own adven-
ture" children's books. Now we
can pick which direction Gulf
County will take, and help deter-
mine our future way of life. We
must keep a tight reign on build-
ing codes so growth does not
destroy the beauty of this area. No
one wants another Destin.
The tax situation must be
brought under control or all
beachfront property will be owned
by wealthy out-of-towners. There
needs, to be a limit on the size of
any tax .increase levied on prop-,
erty owners. Small businesses
must receive the same protection
Tff't' the homestead provision
,. gives homeowners on their resi-
dences (a deductible $$ amount
and a .% limit on property tax
increases). This must be done to
preserve the small town atmos-
phere of this county. ,
The road issue is another area
where' we must,think about the
future of the community. Do we
really want a busy highway going
.right through town? We have |an
opportunity to keep traffic north

join us to the highway. Why not
have the St. Joe Company move
Hwy. 98 not only north of St. Joe
Beach and \VWndMark, but also
north of PortSt. Joe. Travel would
be more efficient and Port St. Joe
would be a more pleasant town for
local and visitor shopping. In fact,
Franklin County would be wise to
adopt the same plan for moving
Hwy. 98 back from their coastal

It is our call. The people of

A Gift In


the Spirit of


the Season
While MP3s. cell phones and
computers dominate wish lists
this holiday season, there's still
one gift.you caiigive that doesn't
-require a manual, programming
or even batteries. In fact, it won't
set you back a dime. This year,
you cain give the gift of life by
choosing, to become an organ
donor. As part of its annual
Holiday Resolution Campaign, the
National Kidney Foundation (NKF)
of Florida is encouraging all
Amrericans to get into the true
spirit of the holiday season iby
simply signing a donor car-d arind
discussing their wishes with their
family. .
S"Our gift idea is low-tech but
Stimeless. and becoming an organ
donor is certainly the ultimate
holiday gift." says Chns Leonard.
president of the NKF of Flonda.
This season is the perfect time to
have aa family discussion about
organ and tissue donation, which
is especially critical since family
consent is often required at the
time of donation."
Right now, more than 78,000
men, women and children are
waiting for a life-saving organ in
the U.S. with more than 2,500
awaiting a transplant in Florida. If
every American chose to become
an organ donor, this waiting list
could be wiped out forever.
Become an organ donor by sign-
ing a donor card, available free
from the NKF of Florida. It just
may be the one gift that could
change someone's life.
The National Kidney Foun-
dation of Florida is dedicated to
increasing the number of organs
available for transplantation and
-enhancing the lives of donor fam-
ilies and transplant recipients.

becoming an organ donor, or to

card, call 1-800/927-9659.

Interview


SOther people are concerned
that St. Joe is going to
make a lot of changes and
turn Port St. Joe into some-
thing unrecognizable. Is
that an issue?
Change happens whether you,
plan for it or don't. It has been
happening here for some time-
and change has brought With it
some problems.
We're trying to bring change.
that will make this an even better
place to live, while at the same
time trying to preserve those
things about Port St. Joe that
make it so special. If anything, we
want to enhance the qualities that
already exist and improve the
amenities and services so people
can enjoy what's here, and not
have to leave.
As I mentioned before, we
have a different approach to
development. We refer to it as
"place-making." ,Place-making is
an effort to create true places that
are authentic, that are real. So
when we do a place like
WindMark, we want it to reflect
the best of the local character.
That means using designs
that incorporate the best of local
architecture, it means respecting
the environment and using native
plants in the landscaping, it
means respecting the history and
unique strengths of a region,
maintaining the local crafts and a
local feel.
Weknow this part of Florida
is very special, we respect that,
and we want to communicate that
in the places we create. We
frankly think that is in St. Joe's
and the community's best inter-
est.
How does your background
and upbringing affect the
way you do your job?
Willie, there are some who
believe that I want to recreate the
small town I knew as a boy. They
Might be right. I grew up in a,
small farming community, quite a
bit smaller than Port St. Joe. My',
parents were hardworking people,
and I worked on a farm from the.
time I was 12. It was a small town
and a true "place." We were an
ordinary middle-class family, but-
in retrospect I consider myself
extraordinarily lucky.
So; I guess I have brought
with me to this job an instinct to
find the best in small towns and
make those places even more spe-
cial. If we are successful in doing
that,' we will be successful as a
business as well.
:Lee Ann and I have two young
children, they are 10 and 7 now,

community plays in their lives. If
we can help create places that
promote family values and bring
families together, that would be a
pretty good legacy for any of us.
Because of the many years
you spent working at
Disney, some people are
concerned you're going to
create Disney-like develop-
ments here. Should they be
concerned?
St. Joe and Disney are two
very different companies, with dif- .
ferent goals and ambitions. At
Disney, we developed projects
that centered on people's fan-
tasies. We were trying to bring to
life things people only imagined.
St. Joe today is in many ways
exactly the opposite. Our view is
rooted in the real lives of real peo-
ple. We're trying to make places
that'recognize the way people live
and work and play in the real
world everyday, and make that
experience as good as it can be.
What are St. Joe's goals in
Gulf County?
We believe that Gulf County is
one of the hidden gems in
Florida's coast. I've often said that.
it is one of the jewels of our land
holdings. The beaches here are
spectacular, the bay is unbeliev-
ably beautiful and the natural
landscape throughout the area
really grabs hold of you and won't
let go.
But what really makes Gulf
County special is. the local char-
acter, the local feel of the place.
Gulf County is what Florida was-
and that's a good thing, because a
lot of people miss- it. We want to
embrace that local character, pro-
tect it and preserve it.. When .a
person comes to WindMark, we
;want them to feel as though they
are in Gulf County and nowhere
else.' We want to pass on the
unique experience of being here,
What are some of the eco-
nomic development initia-
tives you're involved in?
We're very involved in eco-
nomic development in this area.
It's a big concern. We want to help
create a strong, growing, diversi-
fled local economy and strengthen
the jobs that others have already
brought to.Gulf County.
We want to help create more
quality jobs- the kind of jobs
that give young people a future
and will keep them from moving
out of the region. But at the' 4*ne
time not destroy that special feel
we were talking about a minute
ago. It is a tncky balance.

from page 1

Gulf County suffered because
of the decline of the paper indus-
try. But that was a world-wide
phenomenon. Frankly, no one at
St. Joe-or anywhere else-,was
smart enough to see it coming.
With one million acres, the forest
products industry remains very
important to us. So the decline of
the paper industry has had a.heg-
ative effect on the company.
So how do we respond? The
answer is that we must diversify
our economic base in order to
have a more secure future and
protect the jobs that are already
here. We're working in a variety of
ways to support economic devel-
opment in Gulf County.
We've hired Neal Wade as our
Vice President of Economic
Development to help attract .new
jobs. His job is to bring jobs to
Northwest Florida, Gulf County
included. He's established
Florida's Great Northwest, ,Inc.,
which has brought together 13
counties to work together on eco-
nomic development.
We think it's really important
to build on existing strengths
while addressing weaknesses.
Access to the Gulf of Mexico is an
obvious strength that provides
tremendous opportunities in
tourism and maritime industries,
We developed the Port St:. Joe
Marina as a focal point for the
community, and we are operating
the marina despite the fact that
we must subsidize it. But we
believe in its future.
,In Bay County, for example,
our team has been successful in
bringing Nextel to Panama City
Beach with 600 new jobs and mil-
lions of dollars added to the econ-
omy.
We're working very closely
with the Port Authority to support
and grow the maritime industry.
We're also working with business-

es like Arizona Chemical to pre-'
serve critical jobs while we're
working to create new ones.
WindMark, is going to jumpstart
the tourism industry here. All of
these initiatives are designed to
create new jobs and create a
diversified job base.
In your opinion, what is
Gu(f County's major weak-
ness?
It's very difficult to keep jobs
and create new ones without the
infrastructure to support the local
economy. The number one weak-
ness we have to address is the
roads.
For the port to become estab-
lished, for tourism to grow, for the
local economy to grow, Gulf
County needs improved roads.
Improved road infrastructure
stands between Gulf County and
a dramatically better future. It's
time to address that issue. Those
who oppose road infrastructure
improvements are keeping more
and better jobs from coming to
Gulf County.
Why is it important to
improve the roads? And
specifically, which roads
are the priorities?
We've got to improve access to
and from Gulf. County. .Every
aspect of economic development
is dependent on better access to
the rest of the country. We've got ,
to do -it to build the tourism
industry; we've got to make it easy
for people to iget to and from their
destination. We also need better
access to and from the port. In
terms of specific improvements.
the top priorities are the Tyndall
By-Pass and the relocation of U.S.
S98.
Another reason for improving
the roads to and from Gulf
County is to provide a better hur-
ricane evacuation route via the
proposed Tyndall Bypass. As this
count)' grows, that will become
more and more important.
The same is true for State
Highway,71, a cntical link to the


north and to Interstate 10. We are
working with the state on
improvements -for this highway
including how it can be four-
laned.
Some have suggested that
moving U.S. 98 will create a
traffic mess. What about
traffic?
In fact, if we don't move U.S.
98, traffic congestion could get
much worse. You can already see
the impact of previous develop-
ment on Highway 98, through
Mexico Beach and St. Joe Beach.
St. Joe has some special
expertise in this area. Whenever
we do a project or development,
traffic is something we look at
very closely. And frankly, I think
we handle traffic better than any-
one. Remember, we're in this for
the long-run, so we want long-
term workable solutions.
We've studied this and we
believe the relocation of U.S. 98 is
essential for managing traffic as
the county grows. If we don't
move U.S. 98, then this stretch of
road- will eventually become like
every other bad stretch of con-
gested beach road- in this state.
And eventually, it'll be virtually
impassable.
On the other hand, by moving
the road and the heavy traffic
away from the beaches, we think
we've started to implement a
workable long-term solution.

this? Is this going to cost us
a lot of money?
The St. Joe Company and the
State of Florida are going to split
the cost. And St. Joe is going to
provide the right-of-way for the
back beach road. Further, we're
also going to leave enough room
so that one day, if it's ever neces-
sary, this part of U.S. 98 could be
expanded to four lanes.
You've mentioned WindMark
Beach. What is your devel-
opment plan there?
We're developing WindMark
Beaches a family destination that
will build on the local color of Gulf
County. The community will build
on the best of Northwest Florida's
architectural heritage. It's the
first phase of a place we hope will
really make-a positive difference
in the county. In the not too dis-
tant future we plan to add high-
quality golf courses.
Are you going to create 'a
private beach-or will the
public be able to enjoy it
too?
We're not going to create any
private beaches. In fact, we want
to improve public access to the
beaches in the county. If you look,
for instance, at Gape San Bias,
that's one of the problems now-
it's difficult to get to the beach
and really enjoy it. With
WindMark, there's going to be two
public access points with board-

The presiding board'of offi-

its plans for conducting elections
for the upcoming 2002 baseball
season.
Anyone who is interested in

voicing an opinion by voting must

Stac House on Eighth Street in
Port St. Joe, beginning at 7:00

Hospital

are reimbursed for services which
are rendered, one must first look
at what is called an average or
base charge called "per patient
discharge." This ends up being .a
sliding scale that all reimburse-
ment charges are connected to
which can go up or down depend-
ing on treatment, stay in hospital,
or services rendered.
Medicare .per patient ,dis-
charge reimbursement fee scale is
$4,300 to Gulf Pines Hospital.
Blue Cross's contract was $2,200
per patient discharge to Gulf
Pines.
When Dr. Schwartz said a
substantial increase was offered,
-he is exactly right. Blue Cross
offered .Gulf Pines $3,000 per.
patient discharge, according to
Steeley.. This is nearly a 40%
increase from the $2,200 figure,
but it is still a far cry short of
what Medicare pays. ',
Many hospitals believe'
medicare reimbursements to be
sub-par payments at the $4,300
per discharge figure as is regular-
ly reported in the news. :

Reunion

will be playing for the New Year's Eve celebration

at the Centennial Building in Port St. Joe


Band members Larry

Parker, Clark Downs,

Trudy Downs, Robin

Downs and Crook

Stewart invite you to

join them for New

Year's Celebration!


Information uncovered con-
cerning patient reimbursements
indicate a range of between
$2,200 and $7,000 paid' to
providers by Blue Cross. Gulf
Pines' old contract places them at
the bottom of that range and the
new proposal falls far short of
mid-range.
Steeley acknowledges that
he's no expert at negotiating reim-
bursement fees, so he hired a
consultant who specializes in
these processes to guide him
through the procedures.
Following advice from the consul-
tant, he requested a reimburse-
ment, fee of $5,500, a figure the
consultant said was a "reasonable
request."
According to Steeley, the two
parties remained deadlocked with
a separation of S3.000 offered by
Blue Cross and S5.500 requested.
When" asked to :verify these,.
figures, Dr. Schwartz said he
would not comment on. the
.amount offered nor the amount
requested, other than to say the,
request was unreasonable and
the offer by Blue Cross was a sub-
stantial increase -higher than
similar hospitals."'
Steeley said he offered to set-
tle for what an area hospital was
being reimbursed. He said Gulf
Coast Hospital (Panama City) has
only recently negotiated a new
contract, so he offered to settle
the issue and accept exactly what.
that area hospital had settled for
(a figure that he did not know).
"They (Blue Cross negotia-
tors) said you don't have the
leverage to negotiate with us like
they did,"' Steeley exclaimed.
Schwartz said he doubted
,such a statement was made by
Blue Cross negotiators. He also
said that the Blue Cross contract
would have very little impact on
the hospital anyway since it only
accounts for, 3% of the hospital's
total business.
Not so, said Steeley. "Losing
this contract is more like a catch
22 '.we lose money if we. accept
Blue Cross and if we don't, we
lose 12"o of our business, and
that has a significant impact ...
we've got no choice."
In this week's edition of The
Star, Gulf Pines has an insert
which explains and outlines for
Blue Cross policyholders what
has taken place and offering 'a
sample letter to be sent,,to the,
company asking them to recon-
sider its reimbursement rate for
Gulf Pines Hospital.
.During conversations via
phone Tuesday morning with
Public Relations Department rep-
resentative Mark Wright, he said,
"Negotiations-are still open if they
(Gulf Pines Hospital) wants to
talk."
Steeley was advised of this
.statement and did return a phone
call to the Blue Cross representa-
tive offering to'.further negotiate
the fees. As of press time
Wednesday, Blue Cross negotia-
tors had not followed through
with any further contract.

Interview
.-From Page 1OA
walks to the beach and public
facilities like bathrooms that will
rriake it easier to enjoy the. beach.
If we get approval to relocate
U.S.,98, we're going to*put in a
3.5 mile trail system so people will
be able to walk, ride bikes and
really enjoy beach views and
access to the beach.
When is all this going to hap-
pen?
Projects like this proceed in
phases. Timing usually depends
on 'the government review and


permitting process, along with
market demand. And because
we're talking about things like
moving roads, we have to work
with state on funding issues. We
want to move ahead as quickly as
we can-and we're working close-
ly with state and local officials to
get things going;
We've already started with the
first phase of WindMark Beach.
One important thing though, the
only way we can create WindMark
the way it should be is to move
U.S. 98. If we can't move that
road, we're going to have to re-
think all our plans. But the status
quo can not be an option.
What are you doing to pro-
tect the environment?
We are very careful in our
approach .to development. At
WindMark for example, we are
going to preserve as many of the
native plants as possible. The
native plants will become the pri-
mary features or.the landscaping.
We also know that moving U.S. 98
from the beach and siting homes
behind the old roadbed will have a
very positive effect on the beach
ecology and environment.
In addition to developing
carefully with respect to the
environment, we're also actively
involved in conservation efforts.
We've helped establish the St. Joe
Wildlife Preserve. designed to be a
wildlife sanctuary and education-.
al center. It will include a facility
that provides wildlife emergency
treatment and rehabilitation. It
will also have a library ard edu-
cational research center. The St.
Joe Wildlife Preserve .will serve
Gulf'and Franklin Counties and
Southeast Bay.
It's obvious how St. Joe ben-
efits from these develop-
ments. How will the people
of Gulf County benefit?
We hope to help create good
jobs and' help energize, the local
economy. But, at the same time.
we want to preserve and enhance
the terrific quality of life that
makes this place special. There is
that theme again of balance.
When you look at the numbers,
they tell a positive story for Gulf
County.
Wind Mark could generate as
many as 2,900 jobs over the
entire constr-ction period. These
are good paying jobs-they could
generate $94 mllon in n wages.
Our development plans will also
increase the tax base-that
means more money for public ser-
vices like schools.
We estimate that WindMark
Beach could add $9.7 million
annually in property tax revenues
to Gulf .Conty, .that's a stibstan-
tial increase over the current bud-
get.
In all, we hope to help create
a stable, diversified, growing local
economy that provides good jobs.
And do it while protecting the
local character that makes this
place so special. I want balance to
be the thought I leave everyone
with.

Because gum disease is the
major cause of tooth loss, you
should check your gums from
time to time to see if there are
any signs of gum disease. One of
the areas to pay particular atten-
tion to is the gum triangle
between .your' teeth. If it is
inflamed and looks, enlarged,
reddish, and shiny, it'may be a
sign of gingivitis, an early stage'
of gum disease.
The disease may be more


Checking Your


Gums

advanced than this would indi-
cate, however. For this reason,
your dentist will use an instru-
ment called a probe to discover
just how extensive the disease
may be. The probe is a small
measuring instrument inserted
into the space between your
teeth and gum lining. It is marked
in millimeters.
By taking measurements on
all sides of a tooth, your dentist
can discover how extensive the
gum detachment or bone loss
may be. He will also be examin-
ing the quality of your gum lining.
If it is diseased, the gum lining
will tend to bleed when touched
by the probe.


Over the past twelve years, Dr. May and his staff have satisfied
thousands of individuals by delivering state of the art, painless
dentistry in a gentle and caring manner. Can Dr. May help you?

Touchstone Energy Donates to Relay for Life

Raised $265,000 during 2001 for American Cancer Society 'l v


Touchstone. Energy Coopera-
tives from south Alabama and
north Florida teamed-up with the
American Cancer Society at a
press conference Monday, Novem-
ber 19th at Touchstone Energy
regional ", headquarters in
Andalusia, 'Alabama to announce
a titlee' sponsorship, agreement
between Touchstone Energy and
thC AmieriCan Cancer Society's
S:MidSouth. and Florida Divisions.
For a second year cooperatives
thrbtghout central and south
Alabama' and northwest Florida
will serve as title sponsors of the
American Cancer Society's Relay
for Life events.
Relay for Life, the American
Cancer Society's annual fund-
raiser, is conducted in local areas
to raise funds for cancer educa-
tion and research. This year
Touchstone -'Energy distribution
cooperatives sponsored 55 relay
events in Alabama and Florida,


raising more than $3 million. The
2002 sponsorship commitment
equates to a $265,000 donation to
the MidSouth and Florida
Divisions.
"When Touchstone 'Energy
teamed with the American Cancer
Society last year to sponsor the
Relay For Life events in Alabama
and Florida, we saw first-hand not
only the hard work they do, but
the passion they dedicate to their
mission," says Gary Smith, presi-
dent and chief executive officer of
Alabama Electric Cooperative
(AEC). "We were so impressed
with their performance and suc-
cess that this year we've decided
to up the ante. We do this for our
members owners, their members,
their children and the generation
to come."
According to Smith, the part-
nership between Touchstone
Energy and the American Cancer
Society is designed to help both


parties promote cancer education
and research in the local area.
In conjunction with title spon
sorship, local Touchstone Energy
cooperatives will continue to forn
teams at designated events where
they are present.
"Electric cooperatives are
unique from other companies ir
that instead of investors, we have
members," says Ed Short, AEC
board chairman. "But our share-
holders expect a return on their
investment as well, and sponsor-
ing Relay For Life does that.
"We guard the trust placed ir
us by our members carefully. To
ignore their needs is not our way
of doing business. Making
Alabama a better place to live is."
The American Cancer Society
one of.the largest voluntary health
agencies in the U.S., is dedicated
to eliminating cancer as a majo:
health problem by preventing
cancer, saving, lives and dimin

Santa Helps "Project Grad" Pick AWinner
During last Saturday's "Christmas on the Coast" festivities,
Santa took time from his busy schedule to draw a lucky "Escape
To The Cape!" winner from among the many who made donations
to help boost Port St. Joe High School's 2002 Project Graduation
efforts. Committee co-chair Boyd Pickett looked on as Santa did
the honors. Local resident (and mother of two PSJHS graduates)
Teresa Peak was the excited recipient of the early Christmas pre-
sents.
The "Escape to the Cape Weekend" includes a weekend stay
in a Bay Villa, donated by Cape San Bias Vacation Rentals: a
guided St. Joseph Bay fishing.- charter, donated by Capt. Clint
Moore of Channel 44; and a seafood dinner for two, donated by
Butler's Restaurant. The seniors and their parents sincerely
appreciate the prize donors as well as everyone who made a ,.
donation.
ATTENTION SENIOR PARENTS: It's never too late to join the
effort to give your senior a great send-off from high school. The
next meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 14th, at 6:30 in
the Commons Area of the school. Be early, be late, just be there!


Vehicle Preservation AssociaLuon.
The Flonda National Guard is also
providing its support by way of'
the 13th Army Band who will per-
form during the reception. At
Soon, Taps will be played in com-


memoration of the 60th anniver-
sary of the attack on Pearl Harb'or.

News Column
Faith Christian School

Mrs. Jackie Quarles, who
usually writes this column, is
with her, daughter in North
Carolina where she is recoyeriing
from heart surgery. She came
through the surgery fine but is
dealing with major complications.
:PJease keep her in your prayers.
A- Tuesday morning the stu-
,dents a i teachers from kinder-
garten up gathered in the Godfrey
Hall library to have special prayer
for Miss Jackie and to participate
; in the National Day of Reconcili-
ation'.
The pre-kindergarteners had
the school all to themselves last
Friday. It was mighty, quiet
around school as most of the stu-
dents were away on field trips as
a result of a good job on the
Christmas card sales project. The
kindergarten through third grade
went to Chuck E. Cheese in
Panama City Beach while the
fourth through eighth graders
enjoyed Wild Adventures in
Valdosta, Georgia.
We hope that as many as pos-
sible went by to hear the special
reading activities sponsored by
the Friends of the Library at'the
Chateau Nemours.:Dr. Bill Taylor,
our pnncipal. and John Hendry,
father or K4 student Gabriel
Hendry, were among the readers
who participated in the program.
The Parent-Teacher Fellow-
ship was responsible for having
Faith Christian well represented
in the Christmas parade 'last
Saturday. A special thanks goes
to The Big Barn for use of the
large .angels, Big Fish .Construc-
tion, Precision 'Industrial Servic-.
es, and Albert Wittington for the
trailers. Many of the students
enjoyed riding on the floats while
,others marched with SWAT. The
PTF also provided a baked goods
booth and a crafts booth on
Saturday.
The Faith Christian staff
Christmas party will be hosted
this year by the PTF on December
7th in the home of Tommy and
Diane Pitts. This is an occasion
that the teachers always look for-
ward to.
Saturday, December 8th, the
PTF is having a family workday
for the playground and school-
yard. Dads are especially needed
and are asked to bring yard toals,
shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows,
sledge hammers, etc. The family
workday will begin at 9:00 a.m.


by Tom Boone
The Christmas holidays are
closing in on us. With only a few


weeks until the Winter Break,
several things are going to hap-
pen.
First on the agenda, Friday,
December 21 will be our
Christmas Dance. Students,


remember that you cannot attend
if you have more than four refer-
rals. Tardies do not count toward
this total.
All clubs will meet this Friday
during AA.

that you can now turn in money

do not forget to place an order.
Finally, this week,, I leave you
with three small Christmas jokes
I came across recently in honor of
this festive season:
What reindeer has the clean-
est antlers?-Comet! (Submitted
.by Henry Kirby)
How do you make a slow rein-
deer fast?-Don't feed it! (Sub-
initted by Andy White)
What bird at Christmas has
*wings but doesn't fly?-The roast
turkey! (Submitted by Jeremy
'pouch).

High School

The holiday season is very
much with us now. In addition,
,the winter sports season is in full
,swing. Our faculty and staff are
very much aware of how many
Demands are on your schedules -
'after all we have such schedules.
too! However, these are also times
for all of us to review and main-
tain our pronties.
Among them has to be \why
we are in school in the first place:
learning. As parents. we can set


time aside for study; give a quick
call to a teacher;' and demon-.
strate a consistent positive atti-
tude about grades and learning.
Thank you for encouraging' our
young people to reach toward
lofty goals.

The girls' basketball teams
were in action last week. The: JV
girls are still seeking their first,
,win while the varsity girls are 1-2
after beating Apalach and losing a.`
heartbreaker to Aucilla on Friday.,
The boys looked good against
Aucilla in their opening games of-
. the season. The JV team won and
the varsity also came away with a
victory 68-31.

Both sets of teams. are .in
action this week. The girls play
against Monroe at home on
Monday and Apalach at home on
Tuesday. The boys play at Bnstol
on Tuesday and then have their
home opener on Friday against
PC Christian.
Extra 2001 yearbooks will be
on sale until December ,19th. At
that time all extra copies not sold
will be returned to Josten's.

introduced last year.
Donations can be mailed to Knights
of Columbus, P. O. Box 13238, Mexico

program. New toys will also be accept-
ed at the drop-off points. For more

During the winter holidays, we can't
help but long for the beauty of fresh
falling snow. Whether we're dreaming
of a white Christmas or waking to a
snow-covered yard on New Year's
morning, the bright white snow is so
clean and beautiful, we simply must
pause and take in the wonder of it all.
All shapes and sizes of snowmen
(and even snow women and snow
babies) decorate our homes during the


504 Monument Avenue, Port St. Joe FL, 32456


holiday season. These figurines are
appropriate for the whole winter-and
in some states, the season lasts for
several months. This year, take your
decorating to the kitchen and bring the
beauty of the snow inside. Stir up
some pretty Snowflake Cookies. And


what makes the best, most tender,
snow-white cookies? White Lily flour,
of course. With White Lily's low-pro-
tein all-purpose flour, your roll-out
cookies will always be light and ten-
der. Snowflake Cookies are extra fla-
vorful because there's coconut in the


buttery dough.

All you need to make these beauties
is a snowflake-shapcd cookie cutter,
available inexpensively in assorted
sizes and shapes at your local grocery
or housewares/kitchen store.


HOLIDAYS


A little boy approached Santa.
He wanted a bicycle, a wagon, a
chemistry set, a train, a football,
and roller skates.
'That's along list," said Santa.
"I'll have to check and see if you
were a good boy."
"Don't check, Santa," cried
the boy. "I'll just take the roller
skates."
Not many of us can stAnd a
checking, can we?
But when God sent us His
priceless Gift on that first
Christmas morning, it wasn't
because of our merit, only His
mercy; not because of our labor,
only His love.
The Bible says, "For God so
loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish, but have
everlasting life."


John is a typical co-op employee.Throughout the year,
he wears many hats depending on the task:he is
providing for his cooperative members. But today there
is only one choice. Of all the hats he wears, this one is
his favorite. He loves playing Santa for children in the
area.


: I John remains committed to providing the highest quality
Sof service to all of his customers no matter which hat
She is wearing.

reality, many area children do not have
coats or continue to wear the ones they
have outgrown. We are very grateful for
ALLTEL's willingness to help in the
effort to provide children with much-
needed coats."
Individuals can donate coats at

Live Christmas Trees Require Care


by Roy Lee Carter, County
Extension Director
Although artificial Christmas trees
have, gained considerable popularity in
recent years, primarily because of their
convenience and consistent appearance,
many people still prefer a real tree. If
you're a traditionalist, and plan to have
a natural tree, it's important that you
shop early and take good care of your
purchase from the moment you get it
home until the holidays are over.
Regardless of the type of natural
Christmas tree you choose- an import-
ed fir, pine, spruce, or a native Florida
red cedar-you should select a fresh,
well-shaped tree. Before buying, decide
where you'll display the tree, so you'll
know exactly what size to purchase. If
you plan to put the tree in a corner or
against a-wall, you might buy one with
a bad side, and save a few dollars. It's
important to shop at a Christmas tree lot
where the trees are well displayed, so
you can really see what you're getting
,for your money. Once you find a fresh
tree of the right size and shape, you
need to know how to take care of it
properly.
If you buy your tree several days
before you plan to set it up, store it out-
doors in a cool area under shade or in a
carport. Cut the tree stump at a diago-
nal about one inch above the original


cut, and place it in a container of water.
When you bring the tree inside, saw the
stump again, this time squaring off the
diagonal. This creates a fresh wound
which helps the tree take up water
through the stump. Now place the tree
in a stand that holds water. Be sure you
keep the stand filled at all times. It's sur-
prising how quickly a good-size tree can
take up a quart of water. So, check the
water level at least once a day.
Place your tree in the coolest part
of the room. Keep it away from things
like fireplaces, radiators, air ducts, even
tv sets. The heat from these can cause
the tree needles to dry out and drop off
very quickly.
Proper Christmas tree care is only
part of the story. There are certain safety
rules you should follow carefully. Never
use candles or anything with an open
flame on or near the tree. If you are
using electric lights, check them over
very carefully for loose connections and
-wofrirfes. Don't overload your electri-
cal circuits. If you must use an extension
cord, run it out of the way of foot traffic,
and be sure it's heavy enough for the
current load. Always turn the tree lights
off when you leave home or go to bed.
Buying and caring for your
Christmas tree may not be the weighti-
est problem on your mind as we move


Shop Hours- M-T-T-F: 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.rm.

into the Christmas season. But, if you
plan to have a natural Christmas tree in


ing. Make sure you keep the tree in the
coolest possible place, and that you


your home this year, you'll need to give water it every day. Take the time to
some thought to both subjects. Keep in properly care for your Christmas tree,
mind that a fresh tree with good shape and it will reward your efforts with
and sturdy branches usually will make radiant beauty throughout the holiday
the best tree for displaying and decorat- season.

1 cup heavy (whipping) cream*
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine,

1 can (21 oz.) cinnamon-apple
pie filling
S 2/3 cup caramel-apple dip
(usually found in the produce section)


1/2 cup pecan halves or pieces

and baking mix, cream and butter
until pastry dough forms a ball. Turn
out onto surface dusted with addition-
al biscuit and baking mix. Knead 7 to
10 times. Roll out to a 15-inch round.

Helpful Hints

For Mailing

Holiday Gifts
According to a recent survey,
Americans send an average of ten gifts
through the mail or via private shipping
companies each year-90 percent of
which are sent during the holiday sea-
son. Here are some useful tips to help
ensure that your precious gifts arrive in
mint condition.
*When sending glassware, care-
fully wrap each item individually in
packing paper. Place the wrapped glass-
ware in a gift box and put the gift box in
a larger shipping container filled with
packing materials such as foam
peanuts, bubble wrap, plastic and paper
bags, newspapers, tissue paper, or even
scraps of paper from the recycling bins
at work.
*If you're sending books, pack
them upright in a gift box, alternating
bound edge to open edge. Place the gift
box in a larger shipping container that
has been filled with packing material.
*To ship fragile collectibles, use a
box at least one third larger than the size
of your gift. Fill the bottom of the box
with foam peanuts. Wrap the gift in
bubble wrap and position it upright in
the box. Fill in the sides of the box with
additional peanuts. Nestle your gift in
the center of the box without touching
the sides.
*To pack small appliances such as
telephones or portable stereos, fill the
bottom of a box with paper, set the
appliance in the box and thoroughly
pad it all around with packing material.
Then place another layer of packing
material on top before sealing the box.
*Make sure you use sturdy boxes
to secure your gifts. To obtain boxes
free-of-charge, try your workplace or
local grocery store, liquor store or

supermarket.
*Use plenty of heavy-duty pack-
aging tape to secure your boxes. To help
save time and avoid the aggravation of
searching for misplaced scissors-or
using a tape dispenser with a cutting
blade-try Scotch tear-by-hand packag-
ing tape from 3M. This tape can be torn
by hand in any length, eliminating the
need to use scissors, knives, keys-or
even your teeth!-as cutting instruments.

Did you ever wonder why those
beautiful Christmas trees in store win-
dows, magazines and floor displays
looked so much different than your tree
at home? Why they reached out and
made you stop and stare, ohhh and
ahhh at their dazzling glimmer? Did
you ever examine these exquisite trees
for ideas and when you tried them at
home it just didn't look the same?
Here are a few tricks of the trade in
decorating Christmas trees!
Selecting a Tree
Remember it will have a visual
impact and be the focal point of your
room throughout the holiday season.
The size of your tree will partially
be determined by how much space you
have in your room, but also keep in
mind these factors to enhance showing
off your ornament collection. The more
branch tips.on the tree, the more orna-
ments you can hang.
If you want an informal look,
choose a tree, with long needles and-
upswept branches. For a formal appear-
ance, select a tree with short needles
and horizontal or downnswept branches.
If you are purchasing an artificial
tree you should take storage into con-
sideration and choose a tree that allows
you tostore it with the lights attached.
Lighting the Tree :
A general rule of thumb is.. to use
one strand of lights per foof of tree. Of
course the simplest way is to purchase a
pre-lit tree that is hinged for easy stor-
age. But if you are starting from scratch,
remember the lights should be strung
throughout the tree, not stretched over
the tips of the branches.
Tuck your lights around the trunk,
weave them in and out of the length of
the branches to give the tree depth.
Keeping the amount of lights uniform
throughout the tree is important.

Adding Garland
There are several ways to place gar-
land on a tree. The most traditional is to
swag your garland, beginning on the
bottom, at the back of the tree. Swag the
garland from tip to tip, using 12" to 20"
swags, depending on the width of the
tree and then twist the garland on each
tip. The swags should become smaller
as you go up the tree.
Other styles are to double swag the
garland with one row falling lower than
the other or to spiral the garland at an
angle on the tree.
There are also many types of gar-

Get Your Home Into

The Holiday Spirit
To give your home a holiday lift,
here are some quick and festive decorat-
ing tips from the experts who make
VELCRO brand hook and loop fasten-
ers:
*Hang holiday wreaths on doors
or fences without hardware using
industrial strength Sticky-.Back coins.
They're waterproof and very strong.
*Add pizzazz to a plain Christmas


tree skirt by affixing festive appliques
with the same coins. Appliques can be
made with Christmas cookie cutters and
colored felt. Tack with contrasting color
thread to keep in place. Prevent the skirt
from bunching up by using the coins to
adhere it to the floor.
*Create a dramatic entrance. Light
up a doorway or staircase by hanging
Christmas lights with VELCRO Light
Clips which can be mounted to glass,
plastic, wood trim or aluminum. Or be
creative and use clips to hang other dec-
orations, such as a garland, ribbon, or
mistletoe.

Decorating from


land to choose from: everything from
traditional berry or gold leaf garland to
elegant vintage blown glass beads,
stretching your imagination with
designs of fish, sporting equipment or
gumball garland.
Using Filler
Filling the spaces inside the tree cre-
ates an enchanting look from the inside
out. This is the step that many house-
hold tree decorators don't know about.
Filling inside spaces adds interest and
compliments the overall mood of the
tree. You can use ornaments, ribbon,
garland, fruit, toys, mirrors, small gifts,
cards or pine cones, whatever fits your
theme.
Theming your Tree
To make a strong statement, it is,
important to choose a dominant subject
or color for your tree.
Most trees look best with a balance
of texture, shape, size and color but this
should be tied together with one ele-
ment being dominant.
For example, if your existing orna-
ment collection has no theme, you can
create one by introducing a significant
quantity of one color or shape.
Design Repetition
Establishes design and can help cre-
ate the theme of your tree. Using differ-
ent shapes in the same color or repeat-
ing the same texture in different colors
.also works.
Past blending with the nostalgic
toys of Santa and Friends or the elegant
old world sporting look of Stag's Head
Inn and Pine Tree Lodge. The key is to
keep your theme in a basic motif-out-
doors and nature, angelic and romantic,
folk art and handcrafted, Western and
Southwest, antique glass and heir-
looms, nostalgic and family, etc.

Hanging Ornaments
First you must determine how
many ornaments you will need for the
size of your tree. While it's not an exact
-science, a rough formula to achieve the
look you'll like for your display is
approximately 40 ornaments per foot of
tree.. For example if you are decorating a
7 foot tree you will need about 280 orna-
ments.
You will also establish symmetry to
your tree by hanging the largest quanti-
ty of ornaments first, then the next
largest and so forth. Be sure ornaments
are suspended and hang freely so they
are not touching other branches.
Shiny finishes should be hung
before matte or soft finishes, and bright
colors before muted colors.
Each size, shape, texture and color
should be distributed over the entire
tree. Larger ornaments should be placed
on the lower part of the tree for balance.
For dramatic effects you can cluster sev-
eral ornaments, combining different col-
ors, sizes or shapes in one bunch, bound

together with ribbon or a bow. These
can be placed symmetrically through-
out the tree or joined and placed as a
swag spiraling the tree.
Another important decorating hint:
a faithful decorating staple, especially
with glass ornaments, is green coated
ornament hooks with two different
lengths for an assortment of height
when placing ornaments, which adds
dimension. I prefer the green coating
because the wire seems invisible against
green tree branches. The best thing
about these hooks is that you can pinch
and lock them so your ornaments won't
fall off the tree.


Dare to be Different
One reason display trees grab our
attention is because they dare to be dif-
ferent. Decorators have used actual
wood chairs, footballs and sports equip-
ment, garden rakes with vegetables,
bouquets of dried flowers and fancy
hats blended into the branches of their
trees. Adding bold new ideas makes the
tree fun and it is certain to create con-
versation.
If you want to decorate your tree
with ornaments your children have
made throughout the year, be imagina-
tive by adding stuffed animals with
Christmas ribbon, train sets, favorite
storybooks and rocking horses. Fill in
with ornaments that complement your
child's interests. Make the entire tree
your children's story with their person-
al belongings. They'll love it!

Heart's Desire


The Tree Skirt
Covering the base of your tree can
be as thoughtful a process as choosing
your tree. After all, the tree skirt doesn't
just cover the base of the tree, it is
spread out as an invitation for all those
gifts to entice us until Christmas day.
Try tree skirts with matching stockings
to hang on the fireplace.
Many homes use a traditional tree
skirt handed down from family to fami-
ly. If you don't have an heirloom, or


A tradition in many homes is the
final tree decoration step-lifting the
youngest child up to place a special star,
finial, bow or angel on top of the tree.
This crowning touch creates memories
and makes the statement that the tree is
completed for another season of family
celebration.
Now that the experts have offered
some of their holiday decorating secrets
you won't have a single excuse for not
producing the most unique tree in the
neighborhood.

I Bring You


Good News


/ Everyone enjoys receiving good
news. We canjust imagine how the
shepherds must have responded
when an angel of the Lord
appeared before them to announce
that their Savior was born. The
Gospel of Luke tells us that they
were terribly afraid, but the angel
said to them. "Do not be afraid! I
-< am here with good news for you,
which will bring great joy to all the
people. This %ery day in David's town your Savior was
born-Christ the Lord!" The shepherds then went to
Bethlehem to see Jesus with Mar' and Joseph. and they
told them what the angel had said about the child. Then
they went back singing praises to God for all they had
heard and seen. After two thousand years, the good news
of Jesus Christ is still available for everyone who embraces
God's love and mercy. Our Heavenly
father has given us His Son so that
everyone who believes in Him may She aIUihaea
have eternal life. Good news is and odou uil
name Him esus-lbeause He
something that .we can never get N4i sae Is people from
enough of. The reality that Jesus was "ir sins
born for all mankind is an indication CoJ, .An Bile
of how much we are loved by God.
