This Thing Which

Has Come to Pass

And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a

.decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be tax-

ed. (And ,his taxing was first made when Cyrenius was gover-

nor of Syria).

And qll went to be taxed, everyone into his own city. And,

Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth,

into Judea, unto the city fo David, which is called Bethlehem;

(because he was of the house and lineage of David:) To be tax-

ed with Mary his espoused wife. being great with child.

And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were ac-

complished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth

her firstborn son. and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and

laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in

the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in

the field. keeping watch over their flock by night. And. lo. the

angel of the Lord came upon them. and the glory of the Lord

shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them. Fear not: for behold. I bring

you good tidings of great joy. which shall be to all people. For

unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which

. is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall

find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a


And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the

heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the

,highest, and on earth peace, good will to men.

g And it came to pass. as the angels .wegone ,away from

them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us-

now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come

to pass, which the Lord hath made known to us.

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph,

and the babe lying in a manger. Arid when they hrad seen it,

they made known abroad the saying which was told them con-

cerning this child. And all they that heard, it wondered at those

things which were told them by the shepherds.

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her

heart. And the shepherds returned, glorying and praising God

for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told

unto them.

He Took A

By Kesley Colbert
I wish I could remember
the exact year, but I can't. I
know it was about 1957 or '58
I was about 10 or 11 at the
time and it was getting close
to Christmas and they had
this Timex watch at
Cannon's Drug Store. My
love affair for clocks and
watches began with that
Timex. It wasn't an ordinary
watch, no siree it had a
red sweep second hand, it
was water proof, and shock
resistant. Best of all it
glowed in the dark. Of course
I couldn't really tell from
looking at it in the store win-
dow if it, in fact, did gow in
the dark but they had a little
sign right under it saying it
would and I had a lot of faith
in Mr. Cannon and John
Cameron Sweazy.
Well, I tell you, life wasn't
easy for a boy named Kesley
that watch cost $12.95. I
mean if it had been $7.95 I
might of had a chance. After
about two weeks and about
my seventh or eighth trip to
that window I finally got up
enough courage to go inside
and ask Mr. Cannon about
the watch. He said you could
go swimming down at the
clay pits in that watch and
yes, it did glow in the dark
and it was the best watch in
his store and it cost $12.95.
He didn't let me hold it.
No use to go home and tell
Mom and Dad about the
watch. We had lots of candy,
and apples and Mom always
did, and still does make the
best fruitcake at Christmas
time and we had lots of
pecans and stuff like that -
but we didn't have many
store bought gifts. We'd
usually get one present each
and I can guarantee you they
didn't cost $12.95. So I didn't
say anything about the
watch. I figured I'd have to
be content with a Roy
Rogers gun and holster set
or a pair of genuine Red
Ryder gloves with the fringe
on the side.
My heart sank to an all
time low about two days

passed by the window and
discovered that the watch
was gone. I was mad at Mr.
Cannon and Santa Claus for
letting my watch get away.
For about the first and only
time in my life I wished that
I had all the money in the
world I'd buy that Timex
company and make my own
watches ... and I'd pass a
rule saying that anytime a
boy under 12 years of age
wanted one of our watches
Mr. Cannon had to sell it for
whatever price the parents
could afford to pay. I would
have my good friend, Mr.
Sweazy, to get on television
and tell everybody about our
new deal.
For some reason, and to
this day I still don't under-
stand why, we opened our
gifts Christmas Eve night. I
mean every year before and-


after that

Before I got half the paper
off my box I saw the Timex
name on it. Son-of-a-gun, I
couldn't believe it. It was my
watch and I didn't even have
to buy the company. I looked
at Leon's and David's
presents they didn't cost
half of what mine did.
Mother's gift didn't cost as

that didn't take long, we
decided to ride around and
look at the lights. As we
passed houses my mom
would worry about them
because she said that they
had- even less than we did
and that we were so for-
tunate because we had our
health and our family
together and the Lord had
been so good to us .... I was

Luke to us. After that we just
sat around and talked about
Christmas and each other
and our community and our
world. I tell you what folks,,
there was a. lot of love
floating around in that room
that night.
Along about 11 o'clock as I
looked at my parents and my
brothers and I thought about
those people that my Mom
was worrying about and I
thought about a little baby
born in the city of David, lo
those many years ago, I
began to realize what this

Were Making Progress; the Christmas Tree Is Up and Decorated

Christmas at our house. It's with a
measure of firm faith that I walk into
Monday and Tuesday, firm in the
conviction that Christmas will find me
and mine ready! There was.a while
last week when I had my doubts.
No more.
The tree is up. There's no presents
under the tree. but the tree is up
and decorated. It's decorated, that is,
all except the icicles.
Last year we had the same
problem at our house. I thought we
had purchased some extra icicles the
year before and as it turned out, it
must have been the year previous that
I bought an extra package of icicles,
or I used both boxes up last'year. Or
maybe I didn't ever buy any, even
though I intended to. At any rate,.
there were no icicles again this year
when it came time to decorate the
I had Monday night set aside to
put up the tree and get it decorated. I

Shelly and her husband Tommy just

the window in the front of the house as
one can get.

So, if you come by our house and

year she has purchased some new
decoration, been given decorations,
and made some decorations. Mean-
while, we have never thrown a single
one away. When the kids were little,
they broke some every Christmas.
Afterward, when the grandchildren
began to "help" decorate the Christ-
mas tree every year, some decora-
tions would get broken. I guess you
would call that "attrition". Well,

whatever decorations we have ever
acquired and have not been disposed
of through attrition, we still have.
That means, when the boxes of
decorations were pulled out from
under the stairwell, we had Christmas
decorations from the back bedroom to
the side door and that's a pretty
fair piece to stretch Christmas
After the tree was loaded down
with all it would hold, we still have
more left than we put on the tree.

THEY TELL ME it isn't good
column writing practice to put two
subjects in one column, but I have
done it for years and never had a
problem with it before.
So, here is another subject; one
that needs to be pondered over.
Mary Ann Lindley was writing.in

the Tallahassee Democrat the other
day about the little girl up in
Randolph, Massachusetts (she ab-
breviated 'Massachusetts', I wonder
if she can't spell it?) who had refused
to recite the Pledge of Allegiance to
the flag. On questioning the little girl,
it was learned she was proud to be an
American and wouldn't be anything
else. She considered the flag just
another piece of cloth and refused to
repeat the pledge.
As you might think, the teen-age
girl's reticence has caused a stir up in
Mary Ann describes the girl as
"that silly kid in Massachusetts (she
spelled it there), who thinks she's
doing something more profound than
simply growing up the hard way".
I say, when that little girl takes a
$1,000 bill, considers it just a piece of
paper and lights the morning fire up
there in Randolph with it, then I will
consider she is a victim of her
misplaced considerations when she
refers to the flag as "just a piece'of

Don't Drink and Drive

During Holidays FHP

The Florida Highway Pa-
trol released its prediction
concerning highway traffic
deaths for the upcoming
Christmas and New Year's
holiday period. A total of 86
lives are likely to be claimed,
many as a result of alcohol
related accidents.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol predicts 53 persons will
die on Florida's streets and
highways during the Christ-
mas holiday period. This
amounts to one death for
every one hour and fifty-
three minutes of the 102 hour
period, beginning 6 P.M.
Friday, December 21, 1984
and ending midnight, Tues-
day, December 25, 1984.
Colonel Bobby R. Burkett,
Director, Florida Highway
Patrol, stated "If last year is
any indicator, 54 percent or
twenty-nine of the deaths will
be alcohol related; Saturday
will be the most deadly; and
most will occur on straight
and level roads during clear
weather conditions. Night-
time will account for more
than a majority of the fatal
r Department records reveal
that along with alcohol, care-
less driving ranks as one of
the circumstances most often
cited as contributing to those

fatal crashes.
This year's New Year's
holiday period will account
for 33 deaths over a similar
102 hour period which will
begin 6 P.M. Friday, Decem-
ber 28, 1984, and continue to
midnight, Tuesday, January
1, 1985.
"During this period we will
experience the highest per-
centage of alcohol involved
crashes of the year", stated
Colonel Burkett, "Sixty-nine
percent of last year's deaths
involved the use of alcohol".
The Patrol will be continu-
ing its forty-two day state-

wide crack-down on drinking
drivers, which began Novem-
ber 21, 1984, with the Thanks-
giving holiday period, and
will continue through the
January 1 holiday. The
crack-down involves the use
of selective enforcement by
troopers to arrest drunk
drivers in targeted areas
known to the patrol as having
a high death and injury
accident rate associated with
alcohol involvement.
It also involves the use of
over 125 bill boards state-
wide, announcing to the'
public "Drunk Driving Will

Cost You...We Guarantee"!
"Public and media respon-
se has been very favorable to
thit program, and we predict
the increased public aware-
ness to this problem to be a
major factor in reducing the
deaths during this 42 day
period", continued Colonel
"Our major objective is the
reduction of needless loss of
life and human suffering that
results from traffic acci-
deits. Alcohol related offen-
ses and speed violations will
be our top priority during
these holiday periods," con-
cluded Colonel Burkett.

proposed order may be filed
within 45 days before .a final
order is issued.
This means that it could be
as early as July, 1985 before a
final order is handed down
and it could be months or
years after.
Proponents of the dam's
removal contend the public
hearing process has already
been satisfied with the straw
ballot vote in March held on
the issue in both Gulf and
Calhoun counties. The vote
was overwhelming in favor
of taking the controversial
dam out and allowing the
Chipola River to flow through

are expected to exercise

Prescott Sentenced

On Three
Robert P. Prescott, 19, of
Wewahitchka was sentenced
Friday after entering guilty
pleas to three charges in Gulf
County Circuit Court. Pres-
cott was to be tried before
Circuit Court last month but
asked for the unusual proce-
dure of having a pre-sentence
investigation prior to the
trial before he entered a plea
in the case. When the investi-
gation was finished this past
week, Prescott was brought
back before the court where
it was revealed he would
receive three 27-year sen-
tences if found guilty. Pres-
cott then entered guilty pleas
to three charges. The char-
ges included, attempted first-
degree murder, sexual bat-
tery and. burglary: qf a
dwelling in the Wewahitchka
The crimes were commit-
ted against an elderly Wewa-
hitchka lady at about 2:00
a.m., July 5 of this year.
Prescott was 18 years old
at the time of the crime.

incident to the Wewahitchka
police at the time. A Sheriff's
Department deputy had seen
the accused in the area of the
lady's home about the time of
the crime and he was arrest-
ed later the same day.
The home was entered
through a kitchen window,
where he robbed the woman,
who lived alone, and slashed
her throat with a knife when
she resisted the attack.
Prescott will serve all
three sentences concurrently
and will receive credit for the
180 days he has already spent
in the Gulf County jail.

The True Meaning of
The true meaning of Christmas
gets lost every year,
between hustle, and bustle
and shopping and cheer;
The material things
that the world has to give
seem to be more important
each year that we live;
In the rush of the season
we're so busy with things
we forget all the joy
that remembering Christ brings;
Of the wonderful day
He was born on a hill
in a warm quiet manger
so peaceful and still.
A time for rejoicing
in the still of the morn
the beautiful day
when the Christ Child was born;


Judging will be done bet-
ween December 26 through
