| , 1 Claire, Carol Smith, Sue Tulloch, :ters Continued from page 6 iod, we would like to thank our lo- cal post office for its superb ser- vice, especially our latest carrier, Marilyn, who works hard and is very patient and caring with us oldsters. The other local post of- fice personnel has been equally efficient and caring. As a former newsletter editor of my World War II organization, I have mailed and received thousands of letters. To my knowledge, none has ever been lost, and all were delivered. And for those who complain about our great postal service, I say to them, what other country can you mail a five page, back-to- back typewritten letter 3,000 miles for the small sum of 32 cents? Enough said about the su- per service of our good post office folks. Further, we want thank all of the medical community in the Lewes and Salisbury area for the great service to us over the years. Between the ages of 65 and 75 (as you can see, we are up there), we had all or most of the health prob- lems that happen in the "golden years." During that time, our lives were saved on several occasions by the staffs at Beebe Medical Center and Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. The staffs at these two great hospitals in the ER, ICU, etc., plus all of the physicians, surgeons and special- ists (can't name them all; it would take a lot of time and paper, but they know who they are) have served us with care, courtesy, ded- ication and above all else, they all (including the postal people above) have been so very, very patient with us. Ethel and I will be moving out of state soon, but we want all the above wonderful people to know that it was an honor and a pleasure to receive such super, fantastic, beautiful service over the last 14 years or so. We will always remember them and we have so much love, respect and admiration for all of them, it is hard to explain in mere words. God bless all of you and thanks. James C.

Without the efforts of these organizations the dinner would not have been possible. It was a true showing of community unity and we look forward to do- A new spin on classic Christmas poem The following poem was written by Carole Short's second grade class at Shields Elementary School in Lewes. 'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the teepee, And all the Indians were very sleepy, The leggings were hung by the fire with care, In hopes The Great Spirit soon would be there. The Indians were covered with blankets of fur. It was so quiet, nothing did stir. The plans were all covered with white mounds of snow. The bright full moon cast a beautiful glow. When from the north, I heard the wind blow. I looked out the teepee and saw a figure in the snow. He was covered with feathers and had stars on his cloak. He looked as strong as a might oak. There were nine fat buffalo pulling his sled. A bright nose was on the one who led. The Great Spirit yelled and called them by name, "Rubo! Dubo! Squanto! and Flobo! "Skobo, Rowdy, Glyde, Turbo and Minto!" The Great Spirit shouted, "Down to the village my buffalo. Now go!" And the buffalo dashed down to the snow below. He magically went through the skins of hide, and filled the leggings by the fireside. He laid new blankets on all of our beds. He gave us sweet blessings and patted our heads. And winds descended with a swirling blow, And the Great Spirit disappeared with a violet red glow. As the north wind carded the sled to the skies far above, I heard him exclaim, "Merry Christmas to All! Peace! Happiness! and Love!" ing it again next year. Anne Marie Burner Rehoboth Beach Main Street Meaning of Christmas Christmas has become a rather strange holida)i these days. In some ways it's like throwing a gi- gantic birthday party for a special person everyone claims to love, yet when they arrive at the party in his honor, they ignore him, give each other presents and eat the cake without offering him a piece at all. Santa is a nice idea, opening presents is fun, giving them is even more fun, and colorful lights are just plain beautiful. But Santa isn't the son of God, the wise men didn't bring Him candy canes, the original manger crew didn't have enough money to exchange gifts, and the Light in the sky that didn't need electricity to pierce the dark- for residents' use. The facility has grown modestly over the years but nothing like the rapid expansion currently under way at SCI where new buildings and fences are going up quickly to house Delaware's growing prison population. In Sussex County, those consid- ered by society as the most inno- cent among us, and those consid- ered the most guilty among us, live just miles apart. But the arch- way at the Stockley cemetery and the steepled chapel inside the ra- zor wire at SCI remind us, espe- cially at this time of year, that those on both ends of the moral spectrum, and the rest of us in the middle, are all God's children. The chapel inside Sussex Correctional Institution. Barefootin' Continued from page 7 Delaware Colony involved a 1,000 acre tract with residential and dining facilties large enough to-accommodate 400 residents. Howard T, Ennis St. directed its first decades, and Delaware Colony, like the nearby penal in- stitution, was largely self-suffi- cient. The men and boys who were able took classes in rudimentary education and worked in the dairy and the vegetable fields to pro- vide. The able women and girls were trained in shops on site to operate a laundry and make kitchenware and clothing items 2 ness with its brilliance. The reality of Christmas is that Jesus was born - the only son of God had just entered the earth in the body of a baby, and by doing so had set the stage for the most outrageous mir- acle this universe will ever know. A holy God was about to buy back His own creation with the blood of his own son from the law of sin and death that had come into the world through Adam's disobedi- ence. Christmas isn't 'Jingle Bells' and overeating homemade cookies - it's the redemption of us all if we'll believe it. This Christ- mas let's not forget the guest of honor of the birthday party we're so excited about. Instead of ignor- ing Jesus, let's thank Him for be- ing born to die for US; instead of giving each other presents, let's give Jesus what He wants more than anything - our hearts; and in- stead of bowing our knees to San- ta Claus, let's openly adore the one who openly adored us by go- ing from the manger to the cross to the throne, and is at this moment on the edge of His seat waiting for the Father to give the word to come again. Bunni Casey Milton Casa says thanks Casa San Francisco would like to thank those who donated canned goods and other nonper- ishables at Georgetown's Caroling on the Green. Our emergency food pantry is filled with a wide variety of food items to be given out over next few months. Thank you one and all. May you all have a happy Christmas and new year.
