I aman rtj (Continued from Page 5A) Santa, I have been good all year. I can not wait until Christmas. I will leave you cookies, milk, and gum. I will leave your reindeer some carrots. P.S. I would als61ike a big screen TV, but it has to be 12 foot. A new pencil box, and a lot of animals. Don't forget a Harry Potter Potion set, and a experi- ment set. and bionicals, some roller blades every single one! Also a big stuffed bear bigger than my dad. I would like a DVD player, and a VCR player with a lot of movies. Your friend, Tyler Shadduck helped by Breanna Webb White Reek P.ehool Students share Christmas ideas Fourth and fifth grade students at White Rock Elementary School share memories and thoughts about Christ- mas Travis Boyles One year I got the wrong gift for Christmas. The gift was wrapped in pink paper with a big fluffy bow. I wondered what was in a pink package. Beneath the tissue paper was a doll! When I picked up the doll it said "mamma"! Then I looked at my sister and she had a gameboy. My sister and I decided to switch. We were both happier with the gift we were supposed to get. I will always remember that Christmas, but I hope I never get a doll again. Jennifer Bryant One upon a time there was a place called Christmas Town. Christmas Town had elves, reindeer, and Santa. Elves worked really hard on the toys. Elves were little people who made the toys for Santa. Reindeer pulled Santa' s sleigh on Christmas Eve. There were light reindeer in light stalls at Christ- mas Town. Santa ts a holly, jolly old man. He lives with Mrs. Claus in their gingerbread house. Elves, reindeer and Santa live in Christmas Town. I wish I could visit Christmas Town, but I can't. William Burgess Christmas with my family is great. Having everybody home is a joyous time. These are three things that make me happy about Christmas, our own Christmas tree, family dinner, and Christmas Mass. Our Christmas tree is right in our window. Our tree has an angel on the top. Every Christmas we have a family dinner. The food is delicious. When we go to Mass every- thing is quiet, We get to hold candles. I wish Christmas was every day so I could get a Christmas tree. have a family dinner, and go. to Mass. But then!!! I'd get tired of it. Kevin Garman Clueless, is a way of life at Christ- mas. I never know what is going on. When I try to figure out what gifts 1 am getting I shake presents, ask questions, and secretly unwrap, gifts from under the tree. No one is suspicious if you shake a present. They only say 'put it down' ! I pick up a box, I go to Erin and ask "what is in this?" No one ever gives me a clue. My family is clueless at 3 a.m. when I am secretly unwrap- ping presents. I tape them all back together and they are still clueless. Years have past, the presents look the same and I am still clueless. I still shake presents, and ask questions, but I don't secretly unwrap because they can tell somehow. Jessica Hancock The best part about wimer is snow, Christmas and school. Winter is my favorite time of the year. Snow makes me very very cold and rosy. When it snows a lot, you get out of school. Christmas is very cool because every- body is together with their family. You get neat presents to share with your family. School is fabulous because you get to do awesome Christmas projects in Dec. Winter is very awe- some because of snow, Christmas, arid school. This makes my life sweel! Katie Hesting Do you smile at Christmas? The three things that make me smile at Christmas are family, nativities and lights. Family is my most taw)rite smile at Christmas. Family just puts a big smile on your face when the walk in from the frosty snow and give you a warm hug. At Christmas all the nativi- ties tell us to smile. Nativi:ics always remind me of Jesus. One of the best smiles about Christmas is the lights on peoples homes. These are my three favorite smiles about Christmas. Christmas--it's just too fun! So put a smile on and enjoy. Reran Jefl'ery I love Christmas because of the pretty decorations. Candy canes, Christmas trees and Christmas lights are my favorite Christmas decorations. Candy canes are the thing I like most on the tree. Candy canes look beauti- ful on the tree. My Christmas tree is the thing I like most at home. The Christmas tree lights'up the whole house. Christmas lights are wonderful to see. Christmas lights are really beautiful outside at night. I love Christ- ma~ and I'm glad we do not celebrate Christmas in the summer. Cortney Kuhimann SantaClaus isthe nicest guy. When I'm asleep he brings presents to me and puts them under the tree. I creep to the living room and I open my presents while my morn is just waking up. I like to open presents with my morn. My morn went to my stocking and gave it to me. I looked in my stocking. I had a bouncy ball, pony tails, clippies, and a lot of candy. Singing carols with my family is fun. Singing carols is my favorite thing I like to do at Christmas Sean Mohlman This is the story of the [~arm Animal Christmas. The characters are Padre, Blaze, and Welter. Blaze and Padre are horses, while Welter is a dog. Blaze and Welter were singing Jingle Bells. Padre was eating hay in the comer of the barn. Padre hated Christmas. Ev- ery year Blaze and Welter tried to convince him Christmas is great. It never worked! This time it had to work. Welter said "I guess you' 11 miss a game of snowball war". "No I wen't!", said Padre. Blaze said "you have to to have the Christmas spirit". "iff 11 try" said Padre. That is how Padre got the Christmas spirit. Allison Thompson Do you ever wonder what you re- ally want fl)r Christmas? A tree, some snow, and everybody home are what I want for Christmas. Something that I love to have every Christmas is a tree. The reason I want a tree is because it is where people gather. For Christmas I want it to snow. Snow is like the icing on the cake and it is so rich with fun. The thing 1 want most for Christmas is everybody home. When everybody is home you forget about toys because the best gift of all is your family. I'll wonder what you'll want for Christ- mas? With all my might I wish a Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night. l,indy Broeckelman Would you like to give the world three Christmas Wishes? If I could give the world three wishes they would be for everyone to have a Christmas with their family, to have a warm house, and to have one thing they want. The first thing I want everyone to have is a Christmas with their thmily. I think everyone should have a Christmas with their family. The second thing I want everyone to have is a warm house. Some kids don't have a warm house to have Christmas in. The third thing is to Imve one thing they want. Everybody wants one thing. These are my three Christmas wishes. I am lucky my three wishes just nfight come true. 'Eden J. Diehl What would yofl'~iVe the world if you could? I know what I would give shelter, a smile, and food. One thing I would give the world is shelter. I would give the world shelter because not everyone in the world has a home. I would also like to give the world a smile. Everyone needs a smile to cheer them up! One more thing the world really needs is food. Some people starve because they don't have enough food. Do you know what you would give the world? If all of the world had shelter, a smile, food and just a dash of love, we would be perfect. Ivy Diehl Have you ever had a Squirre/y Christmas? You have to have sqmr- rels, chipmunks, and acorns. The squir- rels chatter about Christmas all year. You should just hear them "eeek, I really .can't believe it's 364 days till Christmas! eek!" Acorns are the best part. They have squirrel crackers, they can't live without them! Now you can have a Squirrely Christmas all by your- self! Just remember, don't let chip- munks, "364 days, eek! 364 days, eeck!" Megan Frost My parents think I am an angel. My present to them will be my trying to earn my halo. Setting the table isn't my favorite but I want my halo. Clean- ing my room is not fun. Cleaning my room could take four hours, but I want my halo. Not to fight with my brother is impossible. A magic genie would have to grant this wish. If that will get me my halo faster I'll try. I'll have to be the magic genie. My parents think I am an angel so please don't tell them differently. /~ ,e' Trevor Marihugh For Christmas I would like to give the world some wishes. IfI could give the world three Christmas wishes, I would give it peace, life, and no woes. First I would give the world peace. Peace would keep our country free and stop people from worrying about our country. I would give the world life without all of the killing~ I would give the world no more wars. T~.stop all of the people from dieing I th]'nk peace, life, and no wars would make a good Christmas all over the world.

A com- mon and serious health condition, dia- betes must be watched each day of the year, including during the holidays. Mary Meek Higgins, a human nu- trition specialist with Kansas State University Research and Extension, is also a certified diabetes educator. She said diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar levels if uncontrolled. The disease results from a defect in the body's ability to produce or use insu- lin. Insulin, which is produced by the pancreas, helps convert food into en- ergy. Two out of 25 adults age 20 and older have diabetes. As estimated 17 million Americans have diabetes, but as many as one third of those who do, nearly six million, do not know it. A simple inexpensive blood test can confirm the diagnosis or rule it out. Early warning signs include the need to urinate often, blurred vision, exces- sive thirst, itching, a slow healing wound or nausea. These symptoms often go unnoticed or are ignored. Over times high blood sugar levels can dam- age blood vessels, which can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure or blindness. tion sizes of certain foods, blood sugar levels and ten throughout the ty requirements in ing diabetes.
