Fern Shellhase Alabama Editor: When people are paying for barbe- cue at "Texas Reds" they should ask why the colors of the United States are placed in a subordinate position to the flag of the Lone Star Republic. According to the American Legion book on flag etiquette, Old Glory is to be placed to its own right. Furthermore no other flag is to be placed at the same height. Both of these directions are ignored by Texas Red. I don't think the Texas Reds in Texas would ignore the directions and show disrespect to the Stars and Stripes. I don't think we should condone this disrespect in Superior.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch My husband has an uncanny knack for one-liners. Awakened from a nap, our son came into the living room. His hair was a mess. Everything pushed to the center in the shape of a fin. I paid little attention, until my husband looked at him and said, "If you were swimming in the ocean, people would be screaming SHARK!" Our son did not share in my hysterical laughter. Beneath laughter, there is a well-cultivated layer of fear and doubt. I believe everyone is afraid of something, My husband tells me, "I'm afraid of women!" "Very funny dear." Though humorous later on, many of my fears, irrational and paralyzing are real to me at the time. We learn fear when we are young. Some children are afraid of the dark. My daughter is afraid of lightning. I was afraid of a shark. A small town theatre is a wonderful amenity. It is interesting how fast our children clean their rooms when they want to see a movie. My parents were not so lucky. The closest theatre of my childhood, was 102 miles away. The movies I recall seeing in a theatre before the age of 13 can be counted on one hand; "JAWS", was not one of them. By means of poor television reception, the infamous great white shark must have found her way to me. The Alaskan wilderness was my playground. Alone, I plunged frequently into the pond on our property. Four feet, if that, at its deepest, the bottom squished, like walking through chocolate pudding. My "love of the water, shared only with our ducks and geese. Everything changed the day I believed "JAWS" came to live in my pond. If I went further into the water than I felt was safe, I would be gone and no one would know, "a shark ate me." Of course, I did not consider why the shark did not eat our ducks and geese. Had I thought about it, I would happily have given "Hansel" as a peace offering. Hansel, was my mother's vicious pet goose. Hissing, with head lowered, he would chase me unmercifidly around the yard. If he caught me, he would pinch and twist my skin with his beak. My mother tired of my cries for rescue from her goose. "Just ignore him and he'l! leave you alone," she would say. When I heard my mother screaming from the calf stalls one day, I ran to see what was wrong. She was trapped in the corner, batting at Hansel with a broom. My pride would not let this opportunity pass. "Gee room, just ignore him and he'll leave you alone." I walked off. l'm surprised my mother did not bat me with the broom. No, my shark did not eat Hansel. My father did. There are always cxception~ to my fears. My brother had a German Shepherd named Heidi. If I threw a stick in the water and held onto her collar, she would tow me all over the pond. I was sate from my shark as long as Heidi was with me. Or, at the least, the shark would eat her first and I would still have a chance to swim to shore. I doubt my brother will appreciate knowing, 1 once used his dog for shark bait To the dismay of my family, the movie "JAWS" is now a repeatedly watched classic in our home. When Roy Scheider's character saw the shark tbr the first time, he said, "I think you're gonna need a bigger boat." Currently rekindling my bond with horses, I can relate. "Hey dad, it's me. We have a large four-legged guest coming for a visit. I think I'm gonna need a bigger fence!" I think my father's only fear, is phone calls from me. I'm certain he stood next to the answering machine wondering, "Whose idea was it to have this last child? Why didn't we just stop at six?" And, Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch. I now have a lot of respect for "JAWS." Unlike me, she never bit off more than she could chew. -Tonya R. Paddock Mirrored Flattery is the art of describing oth- as they see themselves.
