Panorama By Fawna Barrett If the first five days are predicting the weather for the rest of the month, it will be extremely cold and dry--two unwanted comments at this point in time. Last year, we wondered what the landscape would look like without snow and this year, we wonder why there isn't more snow. Drought continues to trouble this area, while other states and other coun- tries are battling floods. Cold withoUt snow cover is hazard- ous to the dormant wheat crop. Tender plants can be damaged by sharp or prolonged freezes. With quite a bundle of cash invested in seed, fertilizer and in some cases, chemicals to kill previ- ous crops, losing the wheat would spell doom for some farmers. Farming is our way of life and most stick with it through good years and the poor times. It's who we are! [[[ $ Northbranch By Erma Dillon I On Wednesday evening before Christmas, members of the Northbranch Friends congregation had the pleasure of seeing and hearing the Christmas story unfold asit might have happened in today's setting. Colleen Jeffery wrote and directed the three- skit play which was put on by some of the Sunday School pupils. The first skit; "Angels on Assignment" was played by six angels who were given assignments for the day by the head angel. The second skit, entitled, "Who'd be Outside at That Time of Night?,. Three deer hunters were stationed in their deer stand, instead of shepherds guarding their sheep. Suddenly the host of angels appeared saying "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests." After the angels returned to heaven, the deer hunters head to Bethlehem where they find the Christ Child with Mary and Joseph. The third skit was entitled, "The Three Wise Ladies.". Could the Magi of the story have been ladies? Tradi- tion says they were men, but can that be proven? The ladies walk along as they discuss billboards, blisters on their feet, etc. They decide to rent a car from Herod's Rent-A-Car. Riding in the car, they keep focused on the star as the blonde lady keeps the congregation entertained with numerous 'blonde jokes.' The program draws to a close as the 'three wise ladies' exit their car, bringing their gifts with them, as they have reached their destination of find- ing the Christ Child. Colleen and her helpers produced an outstanding production! A candle- light service followed making a per- fect closing of another Christmas story. Food and fellowship time in the Fel- lowship Hall followed. Jaclyn Yelken won a quilt at the Franklin SeniorCenter. HerGrandma Carol entered Jaclyn's name. The quilt is a fan design with shades of pink, purple and turquoise, which are the same colors as Jaclyn's newly redeco- rated room.
