The President's Message

Merry Christmas
and a
Happy New Year!

It is again Christmas time and we are very rapidly
approaching the end of another year; the end of a year, 1984,
which has been difficult and trying for all of us.
We began this year with a clear indication that things had
to change in Lago's operation. Lago has signed a contract
with its crude supplier which was obviously detrimental to
the livelihood of the refinery. Steps were taken early in the
year to reduce the impact of these changed conditions. As a
team we reacted very effectively and were able to reduce
significantly operating costs and increase the refinery's
productivity. Major improvements were achieved in all
operating areas, such as safety, reliability, oil loss, yields,
etc. ..... in a very short time.
Yet the worldwide refining environment dictated our overall
course of action. We needed to secure an acceptable long-
term supply agreement from our traditional crude supplier.
Although a high degree of effort and stamina was put into
achieving this objective, the desired results was not
realized. So this year, 1984, the refinery announced its
decision to cease operation. But not before all other possible
alternatives had been thoroughly evaluated.
We are fully aware of the impact of the Refinery shutdown
on our employees and the community at large. We know
that Lago cannot solve all these problems, but we try to
alleviate them as much as possible with our separation
program and our efforts to help people to develop new jobs.
Christmas time is traditionally a period of celebration, but
also a time of reflection. Looking back there are numerous
things we have to be thankful for. The high degree of
maturity and sense of responsibility displayed by Lago's
employees during this year is certainly one of those we
recognize and are very proud of.
As members of this community, the actions and decisions
of 1984 have affected all of us. But let us look at the future
with confidence and determination. During Christmas we
celebrate the birth of a new tomorrow. Let's all put our
efforts towards making that tomorrow a beginning of a new
era. A new era that some day we will all be proud of.






Ta temporada di Pascu atrobe y nos ta acercando rdpidamente
e fin di un otro aiia; un aiia 1984, cual tawata dificil y duro pa
nos tur.
S Nos a inicia e aiia cu un indication muy claro cu asuntonan
mester cambia den operation di Lago. Lago a firm un
contract cu su abastecedor di crudo cual claramente tawata

Sdiferente aki. Como un team nos a reacciona cu hopi

operation considerablemente, y aumenta productividad di e
refineria. Mehoranzanan grand a ser alcanzd den tur area di
operation, manera seguridad, dependibilidad, pbrdida di azeta,
production, etc. ..... den un tempo mashed corto.
SSinembargo, e ambiente di refinacion mundial a dicta nos
accionnan totalmente. Nos tawatin mester di sigura un acuerdo
di abastecimiento acceptable a largo plazo cu nos abastecedor
traditional. Aunke cu un nivel halto di esfuerzo y vitalidad a

worde realized. Asina cu e aiia aki, 1984, e refineria a anuncia su
decision pa cera. Pero no promer cu otro possible alternativanan
a ser evalud completamente.
Nos ta completamente na haltura di e impact cu e cierre di e
refineria tin ariba nos empleadonan y e comunidad en general.
SNos sa cu Lago no por soluciona tur e problemanan aki, pero nos
ta purba di alivia nan tanto cu ta possible cu nos program di
termination y cu nos esfuerzonan pa yuda personanan pa
desaroya trabaonan nobo.
Temporada di Pascu ta tradicionalmente un period di
celebration, pero tambe un period di refleccion. Tirando un
bista atras, tin hopi cos cu nos por ta agradecido p'k. E nivel
halto di madurez y sentido di responsabilidad desplega door di
empleadonan di Lago durante e afia aki ta seguramente un di nan
cu nos ta reconoce y ta orguyoso di dje.
Como miembro di e comunidad aki, e accionnan y decisionnan
di 1984 a afecta nos tur. Pero laga nos mira futuro.cu confianza

The Esso News cover and centerfold drawings were created by Stan
Kuiperi, a local artist and arts teacher. He has received his master's
degree in Art Education in Holland in 1982, and has worked full-time
as a painter and photographer since then, living and having expositions
in France and Holland. His work is mainly based on semi-abstract
compositions inspired by elements existing in Aruban landscapes. Stan
Kuiperi is presently residing on Aruba.



Are you willing to forget what you have
done for other people and to remember
what other people have done for you; to
ignore what the world owes you and to
think what you owe the world; to put your
rights in the background and your duties
in the middle distance and your chances
to do a little more than your duty in the
foreground; to close your book of
complaints against the management of
the universe and look around for a place
where you can sow a few seeds of
happiness are you willing to do these ,
things even for a day? Then you can keep

Are you willing to stoop down and
consider the needs and the desires of
little children; to remember the weakness
and loneliness of people who are growing
old; to bear in mind the things that other
people have to bear in their hearts; to try
to understand what those who live in the
same house with you really want, without
waiting for them to tell you; to trim your
lamp so that it will give more light and
less smoke and to carry it in front so that
your shadow will fall behind you; to make
a grave for your ugly thoughts and a
garden for your kindly feelings, with the
gate open are you willing to do these
things even for a day? Then you can keep

And if you keep it for a day, WHY NOT

But remember, you can never keep it
alone .....

Every year the same types of
accidents occur during the holiday
season. No doubt they will again
occur this year, but following the
hints given below may help you
avoid them from happening to you
or your family.
Drinking & Driving
You have heard it once, twice, a
hundred times, and it's worth
repeating: Never, never mix
alcohol with driving. The mixture
is an explosive one. Of course it is
by far preferable not to drink
alcohol; but if you're going to,
take along a friend who does not
drink take a taxi take a bus
- anything that keeps you away
from a steering wheel after
drinking. Remember, killing or
hurting yourself is one thing, but
how would you feel having to live
with the knowledge that you killed
or hurt someone else because you
would not control your drinking?
Christmas Decorations
Electricity cannot been seen,
cannot be heard, but it can surely
be felt with fatal effects. Here are
some simple rules to follow when
applying electrical lighting as

Having a




Christmas decoration: Inspect the
lighting sets for fi-ayed wires. loose
connections, and broken sockets.
Christmas lights can put an extra
strain on the electrical circuit on
which they are placed. If you are
not sure about the circuit's limits,

ask a qualified electrician. Do not
use tacks and/or nails to keep
wires in place, use special brackets
made for this purpose. Wax
candles should not be placed on or
near a Christmas tree and do not
place lights on metal (artificial)
trees. Watch your children when
they're near the tree. They love to
play with the bulbs. This is
dangerous, however, as they can
get burned or cut if a bulb breaks.
If they loosen the bulb and play
with the socket, they can even
receive an electrical shock.

Around the Home
This is also the time when
extensive repairs, painting, and
upgrading is done to our homes.
Needless to say that when working
around the house, you should also
exercise safety. Use the right tools,
use good ladders, don't lean over
too far to reach that last piece of
wall or beam.

We owe it to ourselves and our
families to come through these
holidays salely. Lets do it!

Pasando un temporada di fiesta

Cada afia e mesun tiponan di
accident ta ocuri durante e
temporada di fiesta. Sin duda nan
lo ocuri e afia aki atrobe, pero
siguiendo e sugerencianan
mencionA aki abao, por yudabo pa
evitA cu nan lo pasa cu bo of bo
Bebiendo y Manehando
B'a tende un, dos, cien biaha, y e
ta vale-la-pena pa wordo ripiti:
Nunca, nunca mezcla alcohol y
manehamento di auto. E mezcla
aki ta uno cu ta explosive. Ta
claro cu lo ta mas preferible pa no
bebe alcohol, pero si bo ta bai
bebe, hiba un amigo cu bo cu no
ta bebe tuma un taxi bai cu
bus cualkier cos cu ta tenebo
lew for di un stuurwiel despues di
a bebe. Corda bon, matando of
heridando bo mes ta un cos, pero
con lo bo sinti si bo mester biba cu
e conocimiento cu bo a mata of
herida un otro hende pasobra bo
no kier a control bo bebemento?
Decoracionnan di Pascu
Coriente ta algo cu nos no por


mira, cu nos no por tende, pero cu
indudablemente nos por sinti cu
efectonan fatal. Aki tin algun regla
simpel pa nos sigi ora di colga luz
electric manera decoracion di
InspeccionA e series di luznan pa
mira si tin waya cu a frafia,
coneccionnan cu ta los y "socket"
nan cu ta kibri. Luzanan
decorative di Pascu por pone un
tension adicional ariba e circuit
el6ctrico ariba cual nan ta word
conecta. Si bo no ta sigur tocante
e limitenan di e circuit, puntra
un electricista competent. No uza
punaise y/of clabo pa tene
wayanan na nan lugar. Uza
"bracket" nan special, trahA pa e
prop6sito aki. Belanan di "wax",
esta paratina, no mester word
poni ariba of cerca di kerstboom, y
no pone luz den kerstboom
artificial. Tira un vista ariba bo

yuinan ora cu nan ta cerca di e
kerstboom. Nan ta gusta hunga cu
e bombillonan. Esaki ta peligioso.
sinembargo, como cu nan por
haiha kimA or cortAnan si e
bombillo ta kibrA, of un "shock"
di coriente si nan los e bombillo v
hunga cu e "socket".

Trabaonan rond di cas
Esaki tambe ta e temporada cu
reparacion extensive, verfmento y
mehoracion word haci na nos
casnan. Ta innecesario pa bisa cu
ora di haci trabaonan rond di cas,
tambe bo mester eherc6 seguridad.
Uza e herment corecto, uza
trapinan cu ta den bon condition
y no rek y colga much lew over
di e punta di e trapi pa yega na e
ultimo pida muraya of balki.

Nos tin un obligacion pa cu nos
mes y nos familianan pa pasa e
temporada festivo aki sigur. Laga
nos haci esey!

The holiida\ season will soon be
here again, and so \ill the
opportunity to overindulge in blood
and diink. How man\ of us have
promised ourselves "never again
onl\ to overdo it again the next
Indigestion is that unpleasant
feeling in the stomach that comes
alier overeating. Drug companies
have made millions of dollars
selling remedies lor this condition.
But the best treatment is simply to
prevent it: don't overeat. This
simple step will also help to
prevent weight gain at holiday
Hangover is another of the
penalties for overdoing it. Alcohol,
when taken to excess, not onl'
causes the dreaded hangover, but
also can cause internal bleeding
and liver disease Many traffic
accidents, not to mention home
accidents, ate caused by alcohol.
How\ man\ Christmas holidays
haven't been marred by family


lights as a result of too much
alcohol? This Christmas, drink
sensible Two beers, or two ounces
of whiskey, or two glasses of wine,
are fine. (the\ have the same
amount of alcohol and therefore

have the same effect), but drinking
more than two can lead to trouble.
Sleep is also important. Lack of
sleep causes a decrease in one's
physical and mental abilities. This
can also lead to accidents, fights,
and an inability to handle the
many stresses that we will all have
to face this particular holiday
We should all use common sense
this holiday season. Eat sensibly.
Drink moderately, or not at all.
Get a good sleep every night.
Moreover, do not forget to
continue any medicines that have
been prescribed. Alcohol can be
taken safely while using some
medications, but certainly not all.
So always ask first.
If you follow these simple. and
obvious, guidelines you will avoid
those holiday blues. Then you and
your family can have a very
healthy and happy Christmas -
which is what all of us really wish.

pero mas cu dos por conduci na

Soio tambe ta important. Falta
