Where Is Jesus On The Christmas Cards?


After. church this Wednesday
morning I went to our local Winn
Dixie store to get a box of last
minute Christmas cards. In years
past I have purchased some of the
most beautiful Christmas cards at
Winn Dixie. They always had the
Holy Family on them.
Not this year. Not a single
card said anything about Jesus!!
I then went to Harvey's- the same
thing. �,
CVS-same thing. . ',
Dollar General had Christmas
cards with Elvis but NO JESUS!
When did December 25 become a day
to celebrate Elvis?
Come on people.... how long are
we going to be silent? Are we going
to wait until we are not allowed to
say grace in public? 'Think it can't
happen? Did you ever think they
would make killing the unborn legal
and prayer in school illegal?
I did not see a nativity or any oth-
er sign of my Lord- and Savior in


these stores either. I may have
missed them, because I will tell you,
I was upset! But I should have been
having to step around them, not try-
ing to find them!!!
We all love the prices at Wal
Mart. but have you noticed how hard
it is to find Jesus there?
I was also told by one cashier
that she got in trouble because she
said Merry Christmas to a customer.
Ilst'pilstomer was insulted and re-
p t -"-her. KNOW WHAT... I'M IN-
SULTED!! MY HEART'S DESIRE IS
IEING IGNORED BY A'PEOPLES
THAT HE LOVES DEEPLY AND
BLESSES ABUNDANTLY,.
What should we do? CALL,
COMPLAIN (with love), and DE-
MAND (with a gentle but firm spirit)
THE RESPECT AND PLACE OF
HONOR THAT BELONGS TO JE-
SUS! AND PLEASE FORWARD THIS
LETTER TO ALL ON YOUR LIST.
I know and believe that all people
have the right to their beliefs


or non-beliefs, and I do not be-
grudge anyone a "Happy Holiday",
but do not try to take my Lord out
of my world.
I am the type of person that does
not like confrontation, but I do be-
lieve that I must speak up now. I
hope all. of you who read this and
love God will speak up also. Make a
phone call or two, tell a friend
to speak out, ask the store manager
to write down your complaint and
send it to the home office. Or better
yet, get the address and phone num-
ber yourself and complain. This is
how others are getting God out of
our world, this is what we must do
to keep HIM visible.to all..
If they didn't want your mother,
father, or child there, would you go
there yourself? If they don't want
my Jesus, maybe they don't want me!
Thank you and God Bless,
Merry Christ Mass,
Pat Richie

Merry


Chrisstmas
- The Christmas Season is once again upon us. Shop-
ping, cooking, parties, Santa Claus and family gather-
ings seem to take precedence in our lives.
It 'is all too easy, during this season, to forget
WHY/WHAT we are actually celebrating.
Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
This celebration can be easily hidden behind Santa
Claus Unless we make it a point to bring it to the fore-
front of our lives. I also believe, as parents, it is our re-
sponsibility to make. sure we teach our children to keep
Jesus "the reason.for the season."
But, Christmas is always such a fun time of year, too.
The excitement can be found in both children and
adults. Christmas Eve is always such a fun experience to
watch-...children counting the hours down until they can
go to sleep, so that Santa Claus will visit their house;
cookies and milk left out and only crumbs and an empty
glass left for the children to find the next morning.
We always had "special" reindeer food that Cheltsie
and Brooke sprinkled in our front yard so that the rein-
deer could smell it and see it (we had glitter in the food-
oatmeal-so that the sparkling would catch the rein-
deers' eyes as they flew over our house).
Traditions and family gatherings make this a special
time for all. Always remember that today's happenings
are tomorrow's memories. Make them good!
' During the Christmas holidays, let's not forget to
keep our American soldiers in our prayers, also. Christ-
mas Day, as we sit with our children and family opening
presents and having a feast for Christmas lunch (or din-
ner), OUR soldiers are in-a desert defending OUR coun-
try and fighting for OUR freedom (and'for others' free-
doms). . . . . " *' " *
Merry CHRISTmas!!!
Until then.. .see you around the town.

The strangest,

thing happened

pean battlefield -

stopped and the
troops from both
sides emerged
from their fortifi-
cations and joined


National,

Security
Joe Boyles
Guest Columnist


together to celebrate Christmas. The lo-
cation was near Ypres, Belgium. Here is
how it happened.
The war that one day would be named
World War I was not even a year old. Mo-
bilization began in the first days of Au-
gust so by late December, the fighting was
in its fifth month. After climactic battles
in the first month, the sides settled into
stalemate and began to entrench. The
trenches that would mark the western
front would eventually stretch more than
four hundred miles from the English
Channel to Switzerland.
Ypres was in the northern sector of
the front where British soldiers faced off
against their German enemies. Already,
the site had been the location of one hor-
rendous battle in October which wit-
nessed more than'a hundred thousand ca-
sualties. Two more costly battles would
follow at the same location in 1915 and
1917, the last destroying a quarter of a
million lives.
But this was Christmas and the bel-
ligerents agreed to a temporary truce.
The military leaders of both Christian na-
tions agreed that it would be an affront to
celebrate the birth of the Christ-child
with more bombing, so the guns fell
silent. As the saying goes, "all was quiet
on the western front."
How did the celebration begin?, Prob-
ably it began with caroling. When the
"Jerries" began to sing the appropriate
Silent Night on Christmas Eve, the
British "Tommies" immediately recog-
nized this familiar carol and joined in.
The trench fortifications were close
enough so that the troops on each side
could hear the other through the eerie si-
lence. Soon, the Germans began to deco-
rate their humble, surroundings by plac-
ing lighted candles atop their trenches.


You see,
most of our
Christmas tradi-
tions are a mix-
ture of German
and English in-
fluence which
occurred thanks
to the marriage
of a . young


',British queen
(Victoria) to a
German prince (Albert of Saxe-Coburg)
in 1838. Eight decades later, the soldiers
on both sides recognized they had some-
thing in common.
Next, nervous heads popped above the
trenches to see what was going on. The
truce held -- no one fired a shot. Then wet,
cold and grimy soldiers emerged from the
earth and began to walk toward each oth-
er. Most could not speak the language of
. the other so hand gestures had to suffice
for communication. A German soldier
would extend a hand and offer his British
counterpart of piece of Bavarian choco-
late. In turn, the British soldier would of-
fer tobacco. They began to exchange. gifts,
just as the Magi .had'at the first Christ-
mas. Not even an ugly war could dampen
the Christmas spirit.
The truce held for about 36 hours dur-'
ing which gifts were exchanged and backs
were slapped.. There is even evidence that
a football (soccer) game or two sprang up
between the two sides -friendly competi-
tion.
We know all of this because of the let-
ters that the soldiers sent home describ-
ing the Christmas miracle.: A few enter-
prising men took photographs showing
groups of belligerents smiling and shar-
ing peace and goodwill.
The generals, ensconced in their
warm and dry villas miles far frpm the
front, were highly critical of the men
when word finally filtered to them about
what was happening at the front. They
soon put a stop to all of this tom-foolery.
Four more years of bloodshed would fol-
low and norepeat of this simple act of hu-
manity would recur. But for one brief mo-
ment, sanity reigned and it was Christ-
mas that sparked this simple expression
of brotherly love. God Bless us each and
every one.

More than 100 billion crayons have been pro-
duced so far. The first crayons consisted of a mixture
� of charcoal and oil. In the early 1900s. cousins Edwin
Binney and Harold Smith developed a nontoxic wax
crayon. Binney's wife, Alice, attached the French
word for chalk, craie, with "ola," from oily, to form
the Crayola name. Their first box of Crayola crayons
were sold for a nickel in 1903.
The first Crayola crayons came in a box of eight
r colors: black, blue, brown, green, orange, purple, red
and yellow. By 1957, 40 new colors were introduced.
Today, there are more than 120 crayon colors, includ-
ing Atomic Tangerine, Blizzard Blue, Mango Tango,
Outrageous Orange, Laser Lemon, Screamin' Green
and Shocking Pink.
Over five billion crayons are produced each year.

Ready To Work Program Aids Jobseekers


By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Diane Head, public re-
lations director for the
North Florida Workforce,
Development Board, re-
cently released a state-
ment recognizing several
graduates of the success-
ful Florida Ready to Work
program.
Head notes, "In the
current job market, job-
seekers are doing whatev-
er it takes to stand out to
potential employers. Zelda
Miller, Janice Hunter and
Nicole Jones have done
just that."
On Oct. 10, these job-
seekers took three assess-
ments and earned their
Florida Ready to Work
Credential, which will
show employers that they,
possess the initiative and
skills needed for today's
workplace. Miller stated
she likes the Florida
Ready to Work credential
because it. tells employers,
what skills she has .right
on the certificate of com-
pletion.
According to 'ivww.

and scores-job skills and
work' habits. It gives job-
seekers , a competitive
edge-a credential that
proves to employers that
they have the right skills
and the right attitude for
the job..
For employers, it takes
the guesswork out of hir-
ing, which.saves time and
money
. Florida Ready to Work
is sponsored by the state of
Florida, so there is no cost
for employers or jobseek-
ers to participate in the
program.
"Florida Ready to
Work tests work skills in
three areas (applied math-


ematics, reading for infor-
mation and locating infor-
mation) as well as work
habits. For employers,
Florida Ready to Work
may ultimately reduce
turnover, reduce employee
training costs and save
hiring time," Head ex-
plains.
Florida Ready to Work
is' an online, interactive
system, where users build
knowledge and skills
through self-paced
lessons, so all that's need-
ed is Internet access and
the commitment to get the
job done. Jobseekers study
until they feel prepared to
take the supervised as-


sessment test at the Em-
ployment Connections of-
fice.
In order to earn full
credentials, each study
area must be passed. Com-
pletion of the Work Habits
course is not required to
receive credentials. How-
ever, if. passed, an endorse-
ment will appear on the
credential as well.
Locally, jobseekers can
receive more, information
by calling Employment
Connections at (850) 973-
WORK or toll free at (866)
367-4758.

According to George
Blevins, who has devoted
himself to finding re-
sources for the growth and
improvement.of volunteer
fire departments through-
out Madison County, is
pleased to report that Sir-
mans Volunteer Fire De-
partment was* awarded a
grant for operations and
safety in the amount of
$58,366 from the Depart-
ment of Homeland Securi-
ty Assistance to Fire
Fighter Grant Program.
"We are very grateful
for this 2008 DHS grant


award. As you may re-
member, we received two
2007 DHS grants last year.
Our 2007 grants were for
equipment and a new
3,000-gallon tanker to en-
able us to provide the pro-
tection that our fire dis-
trict needs. This new 2008
DHS grant provides us the
resources to purchase per-
sonal protection gear for
our fire fighters," Blevins
explains.
The current personal
protection gear (bunker
coats, pants, helmets.
boots, etc.) consists of
hand-me-downs - do-
nated from depart-
ments in South Flori-
da and Alabama. The
breathing apparatus-
es(SCBA) were donat- j
ed by Pinellas Sun-
coast Fire Rescue
District. This
grant will allow
Sirmans VFD to
purchase new proper-fit-
ting bunker gear and up-
date breathing equipment.
It also provides resources
for training, which used in
conjunction with a certi-
fied instructor, will allow
fire fighters to obtain prop-
er certifications at home
while. minimizing time
and travel outside the
area.
Challenging economic
times affect all aspects of
the local economy, so
grants like these are in-
credibly important and
timely Blevins concluded
with a sentiment echoed by
fire fighters everywhere.
"Times like these re-


mind us of our blessings
and we know that one of
the rery real blessings we
have in our community is
captured in the heart of
the volunteer fire fighter.
There is no doubt that the
Lord is paving the way for
our department to protect
these courageous, gener-
ous-hearted men and
women. So, we give thanks
to Him for this blessing as
we do for all we have."

The Madison County
Memorial Hospital held its
annual Christmas banquet
Tuesday evening, Dec. 16,
at the First United
Methodist Church. The fel-
lowship hall was filled, to
capacity with hospital
staff and their family, each
taking time to enjoy the
music, food and friends
that make these types of
gatherings memorable.
CEO David Abercrom-
bie and several hospital
administrators acted as
hosts and hostesses of the
party, making sure every-
one got plenty of the deli-
cious .chili and all the
sides prepared by Aubrey'
Jones. Adding to this culi-.
nary caravan were no less


than two-dozen desserts
lovingly prepared and de-
livered as well. This re-
porter was guilty of grab-
bing seats at different ta-
bles as a strategy to get ex-
tra without being discov-
ered. Yes, it was that good.
Of course, no holiday
gathering would be com-
plete without music. Here,
too, the hospital was well
represented, with Jessica
Pickles firing up the vo-
cals and Chris Bartels ac-
companying her on guitar.
The fellowship hall had ex-
ceptional acoustics, allow-
ing the duo to offer up old
school and new school,fa-
vorites, including the Ea-
gles, "Please Come Home
for Christmas," and , cias-
sics like, "Silenit N1ight' "'

Can You Benefit from Current
Opportunity in Municipal Bonds?
Provided by, Brad Bashaw, Edward Jones

As the year winds down, you may find yourself reviewing
your investment strategy to determine if you made the- right
moves in.2008 to help you achieve your financial goals. And
one topic you may well focus on is tax-advantaged investing.
Did you do all you could in this area? If not, you might want to
consider a popular, but often misunderstood, investment:
municipal bonds. And right now, these types of bonds may be
more appealing than they've been in many years.
Essentially, a municipal bond is a debt security issued by
a state, municipality or county to finance its capital expendi-
tures, such as bridges, highways or schools. The interest you
receive from municipal bonds is exempt from federal taxes
and from most state'and local taxes, especially if you live in
the state in.which the bond is issued. Nonetheless, if you're
like many people, you might dismiss municipal bonds as con-
servative investments that usually offer lower yields than tax-
able Treasury or corporate bonds. (The yield is the return you
will receive on your bond,if you hold it until maturity.) But what
you rmay not realize is that if you are in one of'the upper tax
brackets, the tax savings you receive from your, municipal,
bonds may be enough to provide you with a higher yieldjhan
you'd get from a comparable Treasury or corporate bond.
Furthermore, in recent months, we've seen something
that rarely occurs: municipal bonds yielding as much, as, .or
more than, Treasury bonds - even without taking the tax'
benefits into account. Why has this happened? For a variety'
of circumstances, the market has become somewhat "glutted"
with municipal bonds; this oversupply has led to lower prices.
And bond prices are inversely related to yields, so the drop in
municipal bond prices has led to the higher yields.
Thus far, we've seen that today's municipal bonds feature
tax advantages, low prices and relatively high yields. Yet like
all investments, municipal bonds do carry some types of risk,
including the following: .
* Credit risk - During difficult economic times, munibipal-
ities may be strappedfor cash. and have trouble meeting their
financial obligations - such as scheduled interest payments
on their bonds. It's a good idea to invest in a municipal bond
whose issue( is considered highly creditworthy, as deter-
mined by. the ratings it receives from an independent rating
agency, such as Moody's or Standard & Poor's.
* Call risk - When market interest rates are falling, a
municipality may want to buy back - or "call" - its bonds so,
that it can reissue new ones at the lower rates. Obviously, if
your bond is called, your income stream will be disrupted.
That's why you may want to look for municipal bonds that offer.
call protection - a period of time during which the issuer can-
not call the bond.

One final nQte of caution: Some municipal bonds are
subject to the alternative minimum tax (AMT), so, before'
investing in a muni, consult with your tax advisor.
Once you understand these risks and take'the steps
we've suggested to address them, you may find that munici-
pal bonds can play a.valuable role in your portfolio, so give
them some consideration.

On Monday, Dec. 15, the Madison
County Central School hosted its an-
nual Career Day. Organizer Kay
Evans, with the help of several
school staff and a host of student
helpers, made sure the speakers
were diverse and plentiful, so stu-
dents could get a taste of the future
that's available with hard work and
commitment.
Speakers included business
owners, law enforcement, corporate
representatives and educators. Lo-
cal and state government, including
two state representatives, Leonard
Bembry and Curtis Richardson,
were in attendance. Each notable


made 20-minute presentations to
five or six classes, being escorted by
student volunteers between visits,
which gave the affair a professional
quality from top to bottom.
Superintendent of Madison
County Schools Lou Miller was ex-
tremely complementary of the
event, giving her praise and her
time as a guest speaker.
"Career Day is a wonderful op-
portunity for the kids to meet role
models and local success stories,"
said Miller. "This helps motivate
them to work- harder and also lets
them know that there are people out
there cheering for them."
Principal - Sam Stalnaker
agrees. "All year, we have made it a


priority to keep the students fo-
cused and productive. Events like
* Career Day are very helpful in that
effort."
Several of the guest speakers
were actual members of the Evans
family, five sisters and one brother
to be specific. They are extremely
modest regarding their local and re-
gional success, but having had an
opportunity to work with a few of
them, namely .Deveda Bellamy and
Charles Evans, this reporter can at-
test to the passion and commitment
they have for the children of Madi-
son County. All who participated
echoed these sentiments.

HISTORY






PICKING UP LOOSE ENDS


By Alfa Hunt
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The surrender of General Lee at
Appomattox Courthouse meant a sud-
den and drastic change in the Confed-
eracy's future. The South had seen glo-
rious secession and freedom within
their grasp, but now they saw a war-
torn home-
land, which -
must be built : " ,
back up with- ' . . :
out the work
force they had ' "- ' ' "
become so ac-
customed to in
previous years. --
The War g , ^.
Between the
States had now
concluded, and
soldiers from
both sides
were returning
home. Many of
the Confeder-
ate men were
forced to walk
the entire way
due to the fact
there was no
public' trans-
portation and
all riding ani-
mals had been
killed or con-
fiscated. Some
were reported
to have died
along the way
due to disease,
wounds or just
sheer exhaus-
tion from the
long hike.
Sa mu e I
Lewis Moore
from Quitman,
Ga., told of his
journey home:
"I did not
feel the loss of
the shoes until Painin
I got. to Jack-
sonville, and
had to walk twelve miles, barefooted,
where the railroad had been torn up.
The train took us up, finally, and when
I got to Madison, Fla., I had to walk 16
miles..."
The loss of life had been exception-
ally high for both sides. The 5th Flori-
da Infantry commander, Amon De-
Laughter, kept a record of his men,
which told of each one's fate. There
were a total of 123 men in Company D
of the 5th Florida Infantry Eighteen of
the men died on the field or in the hos-
pital, 29 were wounded, 19 were cap-
tured, 39 died from assorted causes,


and nine deserted. The
total number of men lost,
was equal to 52 percent of
the original 123 men.
The soldiers coming:
home to Madison County

homes just as they had
left them since no battles
were ever fought on.
Madison soil.
: Instead, they came
home to see the many
sacrifices their families
had to make in order to
support the war. Homes
had sunk into disrepair.
Yards had become over-
run with weeds. The
thriving society had be-
come a light version of a
shantytown. Some sol-
diers were horrified by
the devastation and
moved their families to
other prospective areas.
The rest of the veter-
ans realized . that the
town was in desperate
need of renovations and
immediately put them-
selves to work.

was almost immediately replaced by
martial law. Regardless of the sudden
change in government, local politi-
cians were asked to remain in their of-
fices until the US government could
make the necessary arrangements.

Unfortunately for the returning

beginning. The idea of putting the

Some of the former plantation
owners decided upon a solution to
. their problems. They had decided to
move to Brazil, where they would be
able to keep slaves legally and work


structing railroad ties for the Pensaco-
la and Georgia Railroad at the same
time. Whitner and Daniels never left
for Brazil as planned. Whitner did
move from the area, but to South Flori-


da instead of South America. The plan
was picked up by Southerners in other
areas and was followed through.
Difficulties for the South mounted
with elected government officials ar-
guing about what was best for Madison
County. Military men were given the
assignment to act as agents, and the
Madison agent
was Lt. J.E.
Quentin, who
soon struggled
with the local
officials to the
point he was
nearly reas-
signed to the
state capital.

Soon, the,

ers were hand-

military to

the devasta-
tion in .the
South as an op-
portunity to
fill their pock-
ets. The men
who came

North were


called "Carpet-
baggers," and the Southerners who
worked with these men were referred
to as "scalawags." Both were hated by
Confederate families to an extreme lev-
el. In the ,book, Carpet-Bag. Rule In
Florida, published in 1888, recorded
what John Wallace had to say about the
situation.
"The.Freedman's Bureau, an insti-
tution devised by Congress under the
influence of the very best people of the
Northern States, and intended as a
means of protection of the freedman,
and preparing them for the new re-
sponsibilities and privileges conferred,
in the hands of bad men
proved, instead of bless-
S ing, to be the worst curse
of the race, as under it he
was misled, debased and
betrayed."
In Madison County,
the two most notorious
carpetbaggers were Den-
nis Eagan and David
Montgomery Most of the
offices in Madison were
held by these two men,
except the seat of the
county judge.
Montgomery was tax
id e rs collector and much of
the money he collected
from his neighbors found
its way into his pocket.
He neglected to pay his
own taxes, which ended
up amounting to thou-
sands of dollars.

to keep his illegal activities from com-

Greene Publishing, Inc.
According to recent re-
search, telling an anxious
child to "calm down" prob-
ably won't work. The uni-
versity psychiatrist con-
ducting the research also
noted that new findings in
adolescent monkeys show
that the brains of those
suffering from anxiety and


severe shyness in stressful
settings consistently show
signs of anxiety even in
situations others find safe.
Dr. Ned Kalin, chair of
the University of Wiscon-
sin psychiatry depart-
ment, says the brain ma-
chinery underlying the
stress response seems to
always be "on'" in some in-
dividuals. The 2008 study


published in the Public Li-
brary of Science looked at
brain activity, anxious be-
havior' and stress hor-
mones in adolescent mon-
keys, which are often used
as a research model for hu-
man children. Those with,
the most anxious tempera-
ments showed higher ac-
tivity in the amygdale, the
brain structure that regu-
lates emotion and triggers
reaction to anxiety
"Severely shy or anx-
ious children are not like-
ly to just 'grow out of it'
without help," says
Kalin. "Having an anxious
temperament at a young
age is a predictor of the
later risk to develop anxi-
ety, depression and drug
abuse related to self-med-
icating."

How Much Anxiety
Is Too Much?
Here are some of the
signs of excess anxiety:

You feel anxious, wor-
ried, or afraid for no
reason at all. Normally.
teens feel anxiety because
of something specific-
like a test or going out on a
date. But if there's no ob-
vious reason for your feel-
ings, your anxiety level
may be too high.

you worry too much
about everyday events
or activities. Some worry
is normal. But if you're
constantly worrying about
things that are not unusu-
al, your anxiety level is too
high..
W hen you continually
check whether you
did something right.
While it's normal to check
something you did to make
sure it's right, continuing
to check it again and again
is a sign that you have way
too much anxiety

Pneumonia is caused
by bacteria and viruses
that are breathed into the
lungs. People are more
likely to develop pneumo-
nia after recovering from a
cold or the flu. These ill-
nesses make it hard for the
lungs to fight off infection,
making it easier to get
pneumonia.
Having a long-term-
or chronic-disease like
asthma, heart disease,
cancer or diabetes also in-
creases the chance that
one will get pneumonia.
Symptoms of pneumo-
nia caused by bacteria de-
velop quickly They may
include: coughing up
rusty, green mucus which
can sometimes byf tinged
with blood; fever; rapid
breathing and feeling
short of breath; shaking
and "teeth chattering"
chills; chest pain that
worsens when you cough
or breathe in; a fast heart-
beat; a feeling of extreme
fatigue or weakness; nau-
sea and vomiting; and di-
arrhea.
When the pneumonia
host has mild symptoms,
physicians may refer to
this as "walking pneumo-
nia." Older adults may
have different, fewer or
milder symptoms than
younger generations. The
main sign of pneumonia
in older adults may be a
sudden change in how well
they think, Confusion or
delirium is common. �
Symptoms caused by
viruses are the same as
those caused by bacteria,
but they may come on
slowly and often are not as
obvious or as severe.
A sufferer's doctor will
ask about the patient's
symptoms and do a physi-
cal exam when testing for
pneumonia. They may or-
der a chest X-ray and a
blood test. This is usually
enough for the doctor to


know if pneumonia is pre-
sent. More tests may be
necessary if the symptoms
are severe, or if the pa-
tient is an older adult or
has other health problems.
The doctor may also test
the mucus from the lungs
to find out which germ is
causing the pneumonia.
Finding the exact germ
can help the doctor to
choose the best. medicine
for the patient.
Antibiotics most often
cure pneumonia caused by
bacteria. Taking pre-
scribed antibiotics is im-
perative. If, after two to
three days of taking pre-
scribed antibiotics, the
pneumonia symptoms do
not begin to subside, a call
to the physician should be
placed. If symptoms wors-
en at any time, the doctor
should be called immedi-
ately
There are several
things one can do to feel
better during treatment:
Get plenty of rest and
drink plenty of liquids.


Smokers should discontin-
ue smoking.
If a cough keeps a pa-
tient awake' at iiight, they
can talk to their doctor
about using cough medi-
cine.
Pneumonia sufferers
may need to go to the hos-
pital if they have severe
symptoms,- a weak im-
mune system or another
serious illness.
Pneumonia caused by
a virus cannot be treated
with antibiotics. Home
treatment, such as rest
and taking care of. the
cough, is the only treat-
ment. Symptoms will usu-
ally clear after about two
to three weeks at most.
Those who are older
than 65 or have heart or
lung problerns may be able
to 'prevent contracting
pneumonia by getting a
pneumonia vaccine. Even
if the pneumonia is not
prevented, the vaccine will
help patients, feel better
than they would other-
wise.

Question: Is it OK with the Tooth Fairy for
Santa Claus to put candy canes in the
children's stockings?


Answer: I am glad you asked because I know
you don't want to see Santa Claus get in
trouble with the Tooth Fairy. Good News! I
have heard that Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy
and the Easter Bunny are all good friends.
The Tooth Fairy text messages Santa all the
way at the North Pole. Santa told the Tooth
Fairy "What is Christmas with out candy
canes in the stockings? I leave the children
candy canes so the children will leave me
milk and cookies." The Tooth fairy said OK
for Santa to leave candy canes as long as Santa
told all the parents to put a new toothbrush in
the stockings to go along with Santa's candy.
So all you parents out there, make sure you
put toothbrushes in the stockings. Don't let
Santa get in trouble with the Tooth Fairy.
