WEST BANK OCCUPATION - under Jordanian rule from 1948 to 1967, the West Bank, along with the Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights and Eastern Jerusalem, was occupied by Israel as a result of the Six Day War in 1967. As a result of following negotiations, governance of the West Bank was shared between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. This division of responsibilities and jurisdiction is complex and subject to change and constant challenge - a far cry from what was thought could lead to a recognition of the territorial rights of the involved parties.

THE LONE STAR'S GOOD BUGGER OF THE WEEK Congratulations go to Bernie Hewson for services to Santa, children and all things magical! Bernie Hewson is Hawea's Christmas postie for Santa. You know it's the Christmas posting depot by the reindeer, lights, sleigh and Christmas tree decorations in the garden. Outside her house is Santa's postbox. Bernie clears the postbox daily and sends the mail from all the children of Hawea to Santa at North Pole 001. When Santa has received the letters, he writes back to each and every child and sends the letters to Bernie. He is a bit busy making all the right toys for all the right boys and all the right toys for all the right girls, so he relies on Bernie to help him hand deliver each special reply to each child's house.
