Santa Claus will be coming to town Friday when the annual Christmas Opening festivities unfold. A parade starting at 4:00 p.m. will be the highlight of the Christmas Opening events. This year's theme is "A Fairyland Christmas". For the first time, the parade will feature wheelbarrow floats as well as the traditional floats. Parade chairman Gary Absher says the wheelbarrow entries have been slow to come in and would like to hear from more people wishing to enter a wheelbarrow float In order to involve the entire community, the wheelbarrow floats have been added as special interest to those not wishing to construct a larger float. The only limitation will be that the wheelbarrow must be pushed with a rider for the entire

length of the parade. (The pusher and rider may trade places at any time during the parade). There are no limits to the number of participants in each category. The four best wheelbarrow entries will receive $25 each. The two best floats with the fairy tale theme will receive $75 each. The parade chairman is Gary . Absher, who may be contacted at 348-3781 for any information regarding the parade which is slated to begin at 4:00 p.m. Friday.

The most well known role of a war chief was that of raider. An ' important responsibility which is not often discussed was the defense o f the band.

Action, it is said, speaks louder than words: ...I am informed that Santa Anna, the Comanche Indian Chief who lately left that section of country very suddenly & under suspicious circumstances with all' the women & children of his tribe, has returned and expresses eveiy disposition to be. friendly with the white people and to keep his people quiet and friendly as far as he can control them.

Jasper McClellan Peace O ur Overseer—Righteousness O u r Taskm aster Who or what motivares'you?'Reflect on the past week and ask yourself what prompted you to do what you did, or did not do. Was it fear? Was it perhaps hate, or anger? Maybe peer pressure, social pressure or eco­ nomic pressure got you into action. What role did love play in your ac­ tivity last week? Was it perhaps the compulsion of life-long habit or tra­ dition or the coercion of selAshness? Is your motivation intrinsic or ex­ trinsic? In Isaiah 60:17 God promises that someday His covenant people would have . . peace as your overseer and righteousness as your taskmaster." Christians who are God's.New Covenant people should let peace, specifically the peace of Jesus Christ rule and reign in their hearts. Other motivations just can't measure up. When one is "in Christ" then one has the "peace of Christ" only when one is doing what is right. Peace, then, becomes the overseer, the supervisor, the manager, the direc­ tor, the motivator for life. The verse also says that righteousness should be our only taskmaster, i.e. is to be the force that directs our actions, our tasks. The Bible makes it clear we have no righteousness in and of ourselves. God has made us righteous only with the righteousness of Jesus Christ, when our lives are fully surrendered to Him. When was the last time you remember doing something simply because you knew it was the right thing to do? (And I'm not talking about oat­ meal!) Many people do only what their denomination tells them to do, THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT! Some do what their long-standing tradition has always had them do. THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT! There are folks Who vote for cer­ tain candidates because they belong to or don't belong to a certain party. THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT! Many people today; perhaps teenagers more than adults, though not necessarily so, do what they do because "everybody is doing it." THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT! Some are motivated out of fear, anger, hate or a get-even attitude. THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT! Many today let the love of money, power, position or prestige control their every move. THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT RIGHT! Only when we let the peace of Christ rule and reign in our hearts, hav­ ing been fed on the Word of God, the Bible, guided by God's Holy Spirit, can we say that peace is our overseer and righteousness is bur taskmaster. I challenge all readers during this advent season and beyond, to let peace, the peace of Christ, be your overseer and let righteousness be your only taskmaster. . Maranatha! Jasper

Education CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 far as to lay much of the blame squarely at the feet of the parents. In her book, SOS: Sustain Our Schools, author Patricia Graham writes that parental-apathy ranks with the toughest obstacles that Children must overcome, including high levels of poverty and empty hours of television. According to Graham, change is not likely unless families take the initiative to make education a priority. Too many households, Graham writes, are ruled by the "pleasure principal." Too many parents are not vitally concerned with their children's edu­ cational welfare, and too many par­ ents arc using the TV as an easy way to keep their children occupied at home, Graham says. Others argue that most parents are not apathetic-they simply lack the time and resources to make a Edd and Ruby Hartman are shown on a recent trip standing in front difference.
