ance, Fannye Armour and

Christmas" to Audrey Green
and D. G. Allen with paper
I’m inspired to share Sun-
day’s message briefly. Scrip-
ture was Luke 2:8-20; topic was
“Going to Bethlehem”, as did
the shepherds. We have and
are going everywhere else dur-
ing this season, parties, shop-
ping, visiting and etc., but have
we made our journey to Beth-
lehem to meet the Savior which
IS Christmas? Bethlehem is not
far, just a prayer away. Hope
you make your journey now.
Tight Fit
If you have a fireplace, make
sure the damper fils tightly and
is free of debris for safe and
energy-efficient winter use.
Q. My brother-in-law just bought some over-
sized tires for his car. He claims they'll give it
better stability and handling. Is this true? —
D.S., Port Arthur
A. Not necessarily. Increasing the area of the tire that
contacts the road will usually give you better traction
on dry roads, but might reduce traction on wet roads.
Why? Because making the contact patch larger
reduces the weight per square inch on the road and can
cause hydroplaning at lower speeds This happens
when water builds up in front of a tire until the tire is
actually riding on top of it, like a water ski. Unless the
tread design allows better water drainage, wider tires
may force you to slow to a crawl in wet weather.
Q. I’ve just moved to Texas. What does tlpe law
say about turning headlights on in the evening
and having them on after daybreak? —■ E.W.,
A. Texas law says to turn them on no later than half an
hour after sunset and turn them off no earlier than half
an hour before sunrise. The law also says to turn bn
your lights any time vehicles or persons are not clearly
visible at a distance of 1,000 feet.
Lights not only help you see, they help other drivers
see you. Motorcycle riders often ride with their lights
on during clear daylight just to improve their visibility
to other traffic. You’ll see truckers running with their
lights on anytime near sunset, particularly if the sun is
behind them. If you have trouble seeing other vehicles
that are running without lights, your car is probably
pretty hard to see, too. When other vehicles are easily
visible, with lights on or not, it’s probably safe to turn
yours off.
What's a Mama Bear? That's CB lingo for a female
police person. Tijuana Taxi?A marked police car.
Green stamps are the money you pay if the
Smokey Bears catch you with their X-Ray
Machine (radar) while you've got the Hammer
Down (speeding.)
NIGHT VISION. It takes your eyes about
twenty minutes to readjust to night driving
conditions after you've left a brightly lit house
or restaurant.
