Thanks for the response.  Will do as you suggested.

Seems like there ought to be a way though to configure apt so that when
a new stable Tor is released, 'apt-get upgrade' will install the stable
package and cease installing nightlies.  Currently, I am having to
periodically manually check the stable repository to see if a new stable
has been released.  I will look more into the problem sometime.
