The decision to transfer Mr. Zeb Brown from Bethlehem School to the district of ce was done as part of the districts continuing strategic effort to ensure an ef cient and effective school system, said Superintendent of Holmes County School District Eddie Dixon. The move of Mr. Brown to the district is a lateral move and should not be misconstrued as anything other than a decision based on what is best for the school district. I rmly believe this move will serve to further streamline district administration, with a singular goal of ensuring the best possible learning environment for all students. Dixon said that there will be an interim administrator selected to replace Brown over the holiday until a permanent replacement could be found. By MATTHEW BEATON 522-5114 | @matthewbeaton mbeaton@pcnh.com PANAMA CITY The November election is barely in the rearview mirror, but one local politician already is looking to 2016. On Dec. 3, state Rep. Jimmy Patronis, R-Panama City, led for the Senate District 1 seat, according to the Florida Department of States website. Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, currently holds the seat, but cant run for re-election due to term limits. Patronis said ling this early in the game lends legitimacy when he starts meeting with constituents and pursuing the job. He said the district is newly redrawn and includes counties he has not represented. my intentions were to le the paperwork and start to learn what Senate District 1 is all about, he said. Speculation has swirled that Patronis would pursue U.S. Rep. Steve Southerlands seat, if the congressman retires after this term. But Patronis said he has no interest in the seat. By CECILIA SPEARS 547-9414 | @WCN_HCT cspears@chipleypaper.com BONIFAY Holmes County School Board Chairman Jason Motley strongly suggested at the regularly scheduled meeting on Dec. 18 the schools districts principals should be reviewed on emergency procedures in light of the recent school shooting in Newtown, Conn. I understand that theres evil in this world, and if people want to do evil things they will, but we should at least try to make efforts to slow them down, Motley said. Superintendent Eddie Dixon reminded the board they recently held a practice drill with all of the school staff and surrounding emergency and law enforcement agencies. It was held at Holmes County High School, and we found there are a total of 72 sets of doors that lead to the outside, Dixon said. When the school was built, it just wasnt built with that sort of thing in mind. Dixon said they were thinking about doing something similar again, only on a smaller scale and at a different school. We cant put a price on our students safety, board member Rusty Williams said. Our thoughts are that this isnt the rst time something like this has happened, and we pray and hope that itll be the last time, but at this time were hoping for the best while preparing for the worst. Christopher Lauen, with the Holmes County Health Departments Tobacco Prevention, was present to present the school board with more Tobacco Free zone signs for the schools. Lauen said two per school were provided, however more can be provided to those schools that request them.

Through special arrangement by Dr. James Clemmons and the Chipley High Band Boosters, this famous band will present a special matinee concert at 4 p.m. on Jan. 2 at the CHS Auditorium on Brickyard Road. The legendary Glenn Miller was one of the most successful of all the dance bandleaders back in the Swing era of the 1930s and 40s. A matchless string of hit records, the constant impact of radio broadcasts, and the drawing power at theatres, hotels, and dance pavilions built and sustained the momentum of popularity. Most of the bands shows are sell-outs. It has proven staying power, and its popularity has never seemed to wane. Indeed, the Glenn Miller Orchestra today is still the most sought after big band in the world just as it was in Glenns day. Tickets for the Jan. 2 concert at Chipley High School are only $10 and can be purchased at the door. All seats will be general admission for this concert in the CHS Auditorium located in the center of the campus on Brickyard Road in Chipley. Proceeds from the event will go to the Chipley Band Boosters, whose mission is to support the band program at CHS. Rep.

Local A2 | Holmes County Times-Advertiser Wednesday, December 26, 2012 The board also approved of the 2012-13 Performance-Based Exit Option Model. This will ensure that students who enroll in the Performance-Based Exit Option Model are those who will not graduate with their class because of credit deficiency or low GPA and are otherwise capable of completing graduation requirements, Dixon said. This gives the students the ability to make up credits based on performance. This should help the graduation rate go up. School board member Shirley Owens said she had enjoyed all the holiday festivities provided throughout the school district. Ive been around enjoying many programs and dramas by various schools, Owens said. Theyve all done such a wonderful job.

Guns dont kill people; people do Dear Editor: I am writing this to express my opinion on the current problem our country is having with many killings in schools and shopping malls. I dont believe the problem is the guns. Guns dont kill people; people do. When I was growing up we didnt have games that glori ed killing people. These video games that make it fun for our youth to kill people have taught our younger generation this way of lifestyle. Also all the drugs out there now that are available, illegal and prescription drugs, can make a person not able to think rational or even make them delusional. That why I was glad to see law enforcement put a lid on stores selling bath salts. One way to combat this problem would be to increase our law enforcement. Another thing would be to outlaw the sales of those violent videos that glorify the killing of people. The combination of drugs and the violent games just means disaster. My heart goes out to those families who are affected by this recent outbreak of violence. I pray to God that a solution will come soon. Ronald William Burnell Ponce de Leon Reader demands reason for Brown departure Dear Editor, Please make the public aware that Holmes County School Superintendent Eddie Dixon and other school board members (except for Debbie Kolmetz) have all the sudden decided to transfer our principal out from under us without any kind of notice. I called members of the school board personally this morning and some have attitudes, some arent answering their phone and some were nice enough but no one had a reason why Zeb Brown was dismissed from his duties as principal at Bethlehem School. I heard from one that he lied to me and I heard the older people didnt like him graduating from that school then coming back and being in charge and telling them what to do. I think the latter is more true. The jealous older employees that have done things their way for so many years and so long did not want anything to change for themselves, even if it meant an improvement for our children. Zeb was the best candidate for the job because he knew rst hand what was going on and the changes that could make the school better because he participated in the curriculum. I do not like the concept of what schools have become anymore with all the corrupt politics and huge buildings. If you do choose to go along with sending your child off every day to a local school so he/she can learn the most current ideas and trading concepts, you expect the best people will be hired for the job. If you think you should have a job you cannot lose even when you do a subpar job then join a union pay your dues! I have never been more excited about a principal than I have since Zeb Brown had become in charge with his new ideas and changes. Think about the teachers and other staff that have been just getting by, having a bad attitude and showing favoritism or turning their head when they know they shouldnt. Bottom line, do what is right and everything will turn out ne. This was done underhanded with no explanation and is wrong, plain and simple. The parents trump the school board. The PTO trumps the school board. The school board should be there for the parents of the children attending. If the superintendent is the ultimate decision maker of who is principal I for one want to know why this principal that has brought Bethlehem morale up and grades up has been relieved of his duties. I want an explanation of why in the middle of a school year this Mr. Dixon would rank out a man that is working to improve Bethlehem and succeeding and did not as much as ask one parent their opinion. I want to know why school board members are so easily lead to go along with this strong-arm family, the Dixons. I for one have been lied to and disappointed by daddy Dixon when he was principal in some of the worst ways of all my experiences of dealing with schools, and nothing was ever done. I can even give an instance once a girl said my son was smoking a cigar on a eld trip, and Mr. Dixon expelled him from ball from this girls testimony. No matter, my son admitted they crossed the street and ve boys had the cigar. This same girl ended up assaulting a teacher who got in the way of her attack on another classmate. This girl is sent to the GAP, this girl is allowed to continue to participate in all school activities, such as homecoming court and senior trip. Go gure. This is just one.. I have more on Dixon and Thompson from Bonifay. No one is perfect so, some just worse than others so why go after Zeb? Do you want one reason why Zeb Brown is no longer at Bethlehem School? I demand one. Janie Penn Blevins Bonifay Reader questions Dixons agenda Dear Editor: The new superintendent appears to have a personal agenda, and its not in the best interest of the students! Mr. Dixon reassigns the competent and effective principal at Bethlehem School without just cause or explanation. Parents, teachers and students were surprised and disappointed to unexpectedly learn of a change in administrative assignments given to Mr. (Zeb) Brown, principal of Bethlehem School. This decision was made at the school board meeting on Dec. 11 with little or no discussion, when Mr. Dixon asked school board members to vote for the lateral transfer of Mr. Brown to another position in the district of ces. In an unannounced and spontaneous meeting held Wednesday morning at Bethlehem School, Mr. Dixons only response to his decision was simply that he could not say. When asked for any further explanation, there was none he could give. No listed improvements were given and no investigative measures are being taken. This decision appears to be made solely based on selfinterest measures of Mr. Dixon. Through an uphill battle, and despite personal attacks from a small group of individuals, Mr. Brown has consistently held teachers, staff members and himself at Bethlehem School more accountable to their jobs expecting higher performance levels in what they are being paid to do. For approximately 95 percent of the staff, this new standard has been welcomed, supported and appreciated. Evidence and statistics of improvement in student performance and academic effectiveness is already being seen. Mr. Brown has consistently shown a genuine interest in the success of the students at Bethlehem School and has gone to great lengths to help provide the best academic opportunities possible for our students. In addition, he has opened the door to parents and interested community members who have skills and talents helping to provide additional learning and educational opportunities in a friendly environment for our students. Mr. Brown has taken an individual interest in students lives including those coming from less supportive and challenging home environments holding them accountable to a higher standard and personally encouraging them to step up to their full potential. His personal interest in their lives is beginning to help them make better choices and is making a difference in their lives. Mr. Brown holds an individual interest in each students life and success in part because of his own personal experience and past. His commitment has not waivered and runs deep. Mr. Brown responded to some of those who stood at his side through this ordeal. A portion of this response shows his continued commitment to the students: While the change in career paths is dif cult, I am open to the challenge that has been set before me I will never waiver in my hopes for Bethlehem and all schools in our district. The hope that one day students will have all the opportunities they deserve and for those students whose everyday is a struggle to realize the power to change their situation is already a power they own . I believe in this God divine power because I am a product of it it was only through education and the witness of good teachers and mentors that I am who I am today . I know the heart of Bethlehem; we once dug deep and found it. We are on the edge of doing that once again . Look at what has transpired already. Be joyous in those triumphs. . You are people of great gifts, gifts that are meant to be shared. God brought us all together for a reason and maybe for just this time. I believe the table is ready and He is waiting for it to be set. Now is the time not to walk away from the table but to invite all those who would come. In conclusion, I want to publicly let it be known that in all of my dealings with Mr. Brown, I have seen him to be an honorable and upstanding man, one with integrity in both word and deed. I have a personal appreciation for the Godfearing man that he is and I am aware of his consistent prayers for guidance for the welfare of our students and school. I feel it would be a great loss, not only to our students but to our entire community to no longer have Mr. Brown as the principal at Bethlehem School. It seems that a superintendent who truly cares about the students in their school district would not only recognize, but appreciate and support a principal who is working hard to bring about good and bless the lives of so many students. Tamra Kriser Bethlehem The piper is going to have to be paid Dear Editor, In regard to references made in the Dec. 19, issue of your paper about my attendance at Bonifay City Council meeting on Dec. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR When I was teaching, I wished for Thanksgiving holiday to continue until Christmas so that I could get everything done for the big day. Since I have retired, I nd that there still isnt time to get every thing done. Even though I dont decorate the house as much as some do, its still an ongoing process which demands a great deal of chaos. With husband Jack in the hospital, son Glen set up the tree and granddaughter Lacey decorated it. That is a good start., but boxes containing decorating stuff keep turning up more and more things to put Somewhere. I have heard of people who take pictures of the placement of decorations and keep an album to go by for the following year. They probably have other personality disorders, too. I have also heard of people who get their shopping done and gifts wrapped by Dec. rst. I am not one of them either. It isnt that I procrastinate. I just operate on a demand schedule. Whatever demands my attention at the moment is what I do. Making jelly for Christmas sales demands my attention one week between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I always tell myself Im only giving money to family members as my declining physical stamina prohibits extensive shopping trips. But ivariably, I pick up this or that for a person on my gift list. (Do I have a list? I dont see a list.) Then, when I start the process of digging out the bargains Ive found, (going to my store as my sister Minnie used to say) I try to even out the value by adding items. That involves local shopping trips. In desperation, I ing odd and sundry items into fteen gift bags and announce to the assembled family on Christmas day, If you dont like or cant use what is in your bag, swap with somebody, take it to Good Will, or put it in the garbage. Baking is top priority for me. And I am thankful for the freezer which allows me to bake before Christmas week. With Jacks hospital visits, I vowed to cut the baking, and I have left off any candy or cookie making, but my dressing is in the freezer. My two Itallian Cream cakes are done; my fruit cake is done; and my 12 layer chocolate cake is in done. Over the years, Ive experimented with which recipe makes the best cake for the thin layer chocolate. Ive used pound cake; not enough volume. Ive used yellow cake mixes; they work just ne, though more prone to break. This year, I searched our Relay For Life cookbook from First Baptist Church (out of print) and found Mrs. Eunice Kents Chocolate Layer Cake Recipe. It is the best. If I hadnt run out of Bakers Joy and skipped lining the pans with greased waxed paper, my layers would have come out perfect. Here is Mrs. Kents cake recipe: 3 sticks butter (1 and cup), 3 cups sugar, 4 and cups our, 4 and tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp salt, 6 large eggs, 1 and cup milk and 1 tsp vanilla. Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time, add sifted dry ingredients alternately with milk and vanilla, starting and ending with our. She baked hers in six layers for 20 minutes on 350, but it easily makes 12 of the thin layers baked from 12 to 15 minutes each. I use Alan Rileys grandmothers icing recipe. Several years ago I asked Martha Hudson to get me her mothers boiled icing recipe. So she asked Mrs .Hutto for it. When she showed her the measurements, it was with a coffee mug. So Martha, using a standard measuring cup, translated the frosting recipe. Here it is: 3 cups sugar, pinch salt, 2 TBS our, one cup cocoa, 2/3 cup milk, 1 stick butter or oleo and 2 tsp vanilla. Mix dry ingredients in heavy boiler; stir in milk. Bring to a boil and boil until thickened. Stir in butter and vanilla. Reduce heat to simmer and leave on stove as you pour over layers. This frosts 7 layers, so for 12 or 14 layers, double the recipe. The process is very messy but I spread an old table cloth on my counter and I scoop the run-off from the plated and back onto the cake. Mrs. Kents boiled icing recipe is similar. 1 stick butter, 2 squares unsweet chocolate, 2 cups sugar, cup evaporated milk, 1 TBS Karo syrup and 1 tsp vanilla. If I had to con ne my baking to one cake, my family would have me do the thin layer chocolate. Merry Christmas and happy eating to you.

10, I feel I need to expand on those statements made by me. Is was in attendance at the Bonifay City Council meeting on Nov. 26, addressing some issues in regards to the sewer project that was conducted in 2011, speci cally about some observations I had made about depressions sinkins, patches, etc., that have been made, and asked what the warranty period on that project was. The Mayor responded and said the warranty period was one year and had already expired. I made mention of some speci c locations of some of those depressions, sink-ins, patches, etc. Then, on Friday, Nov. 30, I observed a crew, on two or more trucks, with a compactor, trailer with asphalt, workers with shovels, etc putting asphalt in depressions in Scenic Hill Circle, the street in front of my house, also they worked on Brock Avenue. There was no name on the trucks, and I could no ascertain who was performing the work I knew it was not City of Bonifay. Again, at the Nov. 26 city council meeting, the Mayor had stated the warranty on the project in 2011 had already expired, so my intention in attending the Dec. 10 council meeting was to ask questions of the council as to who the people were that I had observed doing the repairs, patches, or whatever, with idea of posing questions, that, if it was the contractor of the 2011 sewer installation, then would not that action be a basis for considering some action against the company, but, when I stood to speak to the Council, (at Dec. 10 meeting) the Mayor stated, straightforward to me, no questions allowed. So, I s till have to wonder who the party or parties were that were doing the work on Nov. 30. By the fact that, as I have been able to ascertain, that crew lled in sinkins at laterals from the sewer main to four different residences, one on same side of street as my residence, in fact, the next residences south of my residence, two residences south of mine, on opposite side of street, and one residence north of mine on opposite side of street; then, on Brock Avenue there had been at least ve patches that is, after the sewer main had been installed, the laterals to the various homes installed, and the street repaved, the new pavement was dug up, I speculate because of problems that had already arisen, corrections made, then the patches were made to the pavement, and the crew I observed on Nov. 30 paved over the original resurfacing, and the patches, except that, at the Nov. 26 Council meeting, I had stated there was the makings of a large pot-hole in Brock Avenue where a culvert under the street existed, indicating some failure in the repaving of the street, and that breaking of the street is still there. So, again, speculation on my part, I thing in terms of the construction company that did the 2011 sewer project was, those who did the patches on Nov. 30. But, again, I was denied being able to ask the question. And, as I was making my statements, I cited an experience that my wife and I had at a home that we had built on in 1962 at 810 North Oklahoma, St., in Bonifay. When the homes were built, there was no sewer access available and we had to build a septic tank. And some time between then and 1970, a sewer project, by action of Bonifay City Council, was initiated, and the mandate was that all residences adjacent to the project had to connect to it we did, and the citing I made was that more than a year passed when we experienced our commodes backing up. And, as I cited, after the third occurrence I went to the Mayor, citing our unpleasant experiences, and the Mayor told the maintenance foreman to go, nd the cause, and x it, whatever it too. And, as I stated, the crew found that the main sewer line down Minnesota Avenue that was supposed to connect to a manhole at Oklahoma Street, lacked 12 to 15 inched connecting, caused by lack of inspectors doing their job, the construction crew doing the work, looking for sundown and payday, covered up the failure, and it took time probably a year or more for the sewer main to ll up with backed up sewage until it reached where our residence connected, then backed up commodes, this reference being cited by me, to connect with the 20112 sewer project, that it would take time before the problems would begin showing up the sink-ins that I had cited, that were patched over, I contend present possibility that the sinking of the pavement could, or would, impact on the lateral connecting the residences to the main sewer line, and the laterals of rigid PVC, not made to bend, ex, etc., could wither break, pull loose at a joint, or could pull loose from the sewer main and that, again, would take time for the line to ll with blocked up sewage, and reach back into the residences and the backed-up commodes, etc. would present them selves, but, as I was getting to the point of making that association, the May stopped me by saying Youve said enough, and my address to the council was abruptly halted. And, some gures that I had developed, from the Bonifay City Clerk in preparation for addressing the Council on Dec. 10 the company that sis the 2011 sewer project was Blankenship Construction and the contract was for $2,680,684. Also, the current sewer project that is now on-going is being done by Royal American and contracted for $4,078,220. At the Nov. 26 Council meeting, I had stated that I wondered if the 2011 sewer project had created any improvement in the Bonifay Sewer System. It was stated, emphatically, by the City Engineer, that the system was better. In statements and articles in paper, as I recall, the Bonifay City Council engaged services of a company that had capabilities, by use of cameras, lines, etc., to run those cameras through the sewer system lines and present the speci c location of breaks in the system. And, I stated at the Nov. 26 meeting that I questioned that there was any failure in the Scenic Hill Circle Street sewer line, except that, when that line was installed the street was unpaved. Later, a Bonifay City Council of the past, had the street paves, but, they failed to have the manholes being raised, or the pavement being lowered, that would allow access to the manholes, and I suggest that was the only reason for the line bring replaces. And I could suggest other streets that are in that same category. My point being, in having stated the preceding, is that I wonder, considering the six and one-half plus, million dollars that has been obligated and, again, the information provided me by Bonifay City Clerk, is that amount is a loan not any of the free money, meaning that we the residents of Bonifay who use and pay sewer charges each month, and recall that at out set of the 2011 project, the monthly sewer fee was raised by $5 to pay for it, could not have been, again using the videos of the pre-2011 sewer system, been addressed by the City Engineer and the employees, for a lot less money and the outcome have been as good as will be after all has been said and done. I speculate that I am wasting my time in attending the council meetings and writing this letter, but, looking at the world situation the nations such as Italy, France, Spain, etc., and their nancial plight, the United Sates and the scal cliff that is so prominent in the news today, all of which, from my viewpoint, has been brought about by politicians, internationally, nationally, sate, down to local governments, having no self constraint, as they do in respect to their personal nances, have an attitude of lets get it its only money tomorrow will take care of the payback but, Im concerned about tomorrow and the piper is going to have to be paid. I thank you, Mr. Editor, if you do print this letter. Ray Brooks Bonifay ROGERS INSURANCE AGENCY, INC.

The desire to go to Washington D.C. is just not in my blood. Patronis said he likes serving in the Legislature and hes close enough to Tallahassee where he can sleep in his own bed every night.

Patronis said he thinks Southerland will have a long and prosperous career in Washington and probably can hold the seat for as long as he wants.

Editors note: The folwlowing is one of the top area stories from 2012 to recap the year in sports. By PAT McCANN 747-5068 | @patmccann pmccann@pcnh.com It didnt take long for two area high schools to take advantage of the new Rural Classi cation for smaller public schools. Long dominated by private school powerhouses from large metropolitan areas, Ponce de Leon and Chipley each took home a 1A state title in basketball, the PDL girls edging Newberry 55-52 and Chipleys boys overpowering Hawthorne 71-48. Their combined effort was good enough for No. 8 on The News Herald sports departments list of Top 10 stories of 2012. Ponce de Leon, 28-2, built a 23-point lead early in the second half against Newberry on Feb. 23 in Lakeland, but had to hang on to survive. Pirates coach Tim Alford lauded the new playoff system put in place by the Florida High School Athletics Association. For me as a coach, I honestly feel like my kids work hard, too, as do Newberrys kids, Alford said of the new 1A class. All the games here were competitive, it (Rural classi cation) was a great opportunity for kids. I noticed in one of the other classi cations the region nal score was like 73-6. We didnt have that down here. Ponce de Leon didnt secure the championship until 2 seconds remaining when Lasharrah Nattiel, who led Newberry with 19 points, missed two free throws. One second later, JoJo Carlson made the rst of two free throws to clinch the crown for the Pirates. Slightly more than a minute into the third quarter PDL led 32-9, and still was in control at 41-21 about 4 minutes later. Thats when Newberry, 27-3, regrouped for a nal charge. Chipley didnt have a similar scare as the Tigers, 26-3, romped to their 24th straight triumph of the season a week later in Lakeland. Cameron Dozier led the way with 23 points and six assists as Chipley won its rst state title after having nished as runner-up three times, the last in 1989. You realize youre in a state championship game when you see the level of intensity these guys played at, Chipley coach Joel Orlando said. They put everything on the line, both offensively and defensively. In doing so, the Tigers overcame a 2-3 start to their season, the early schedule dotted with larger classi cation schools. When you play against good teams and youre fortunate to win, it builds con dence, Orlando said. When you have con dence in young men it makes them play beyond their potential.

Gods Love is Everlasting It seems that we are always waiting for some special future event in our lives. Perhaps we are looking forward to a long-deserved vaca tion, or maybe an upcoming sporting event, or some other special occasion that is important to us. How ever, the joy and pleasure that are received from most of these events are all so short-lived, that why we were so involved with them. Surely, there is nothing wrong with looking forward to special occasions, since it is important to have events in our lives that give us a break from our daily routine. And, God wants us to be a joyful people, but we should keep in mind that Gods love is the only thing in this world that is constant. The Bible tells us that Gods love is everlasting, and with loving kindness He has drawn us (Jeremiah 31.3). So many of the things that seem so important to us today and mean little to us later; however, our return ing Gods love will assure us of a friendship with Him that will last forever.

Faith BRIEFS SPECIAL TO THE TIMES-ADVERTISER Youngsters at Reedy Church in Westville performed their annual Christmas Play on Sunday. REEDY CHURCH CHRISTMAS PLAY Dr. James L. Snyder For the last several hours, I have been slouching in my easy chair basking in the soothing aura of the season. I have not moved in several hours, and it probably will be several more hours before I even think of moving. Just a few days ago, we were in the middle of our Christmas holiday celebration with family and friends. The only thing I enjoy more is the peace and quiet that follows all that festivity. Do not get me wrong, I love my family and friends but boy do I love peace and quiet. Isnt one of the sayings of the season, Peace on earth, goodwill toward men? I am not sure of all the rami cations of that phrase, but I do enjoy the peace that comes following an exuberant time of celebration with family and friends. About this time, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage came in and saw me in the same position she saw me several hours previous. Are you, she said after staring at me for a few moments, going to stay in that chair all day? All I could do was smile graciously in her direction. Then she became concerned, and prodded me a little, Are you all right? She said it with a deep sense of genuine concern. I knew I owed her an explanation for the collapse of my bodily activities. Nothing wrong with me, I explained, Im just broke. With that, I smiled a rather infectious smile. She broke out laughing and said, What did you say? I think at the time she thought I was just exercising the spirit of merriment. I said, Im broke. Then she had a look of concern on her face. What do you mean youre broke? I knew she was concerned at that point and I had to explain to her what I meant by being broke. By being broke, I do not mean like the government broke into my bank account and con scated my money. For all Americans that is quite a taxing situation. Also, by being broke I do not mean I dropped my wifes favorite porcelain teapot and broke it all over the oor. Once something is broke, there just is no way of xing it. Im broke, I repeated to my wife with a whimsical smile, and its a real good feeling this time of the year. She looked at me, shook her head and then went back to her business. I thought some more on that subject and reaf rmed my idea that being broke this time of the year was a marvelous feeling. If it were April, tax time, being broke would not feel so good. Or, if it were before Christmas, being broke would not be a very good idea. Being broke after Christmas means several things. First, it means that I did my best to bless my family and friends around me with tokens of appreciation. That is all a gift really is. I am not a very good gift buyer, just ask my wife. I am the kind of person who thinks it is the thought that counts. I also know, behind every thought must be some emblem of tangibility. I have done my best this year to select gifts that would be appreciated, at least for a moment. It would be a terrible thing at the end of the Christmas season to have a ton of money left over realizing that maybe you did not do your best this year at Christmas time. Do not get me wrong. I am a Pennsylvania Dutchman through and through and we do not believe in wasting money. We do believe in investing our resources in family and friends. I am not extravagant in my giving. I do not have it to be extravagant. What I do have, I want to use to bless and encourage the people that have meant so much to me during the year. Yes, being broke is a good feeling. Being broke also means I have no room for regrets. Would I have liked to give more gifts? Sure, but when you run out of money, you cannot go any further. By being broke at the end of Christmas means, I have done everything I possibly could within my resources to thank the people I love for being a part of my life. You cannot buy friendship. Unless of course you are in Washington DC or Hollywood California. Among normal folk, friendship is not for sale. It is not even for rent. At this time of the year, it sure is a wonderful feeling to tell your friends and family you are glad they are a part of your life. Being broke is a lot more than having no money. I have given all I had to give and there is a good warm fuzzy feeling about that. God is the one who set the standard along this line. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23 KJV). God looked at the world, it broke His heart and therefore He sent His Son to remedy our situation. Thank God for that broken heart. He gave His all for those He loved. Dr. James L.
