participation" Cox said
The Development and Leas-
ing Committee approved the
opening of two new restaurants
on the island, Lilo's at the
Soundside Market and The Dog
House Dell m the Via de Luna
Shopping Center
The Architectural and Envi-
ronmental Committee approved

The Committee also ap-
proved giving two leaseholders

dredging project Hazel Fairey
will be allowed to purchase some
of the spoils and Andrew Brahan
will be given sand to place on his

the spoils will be used on public
he Administrative Committee
heard Dottie Ford, Finance
director's report Fordsaidtherev-
enues were down for January but
were still up overall just a bit for
the year Her report indicated that
most areas of lease fees collected
are less than what was anticipated
However, alcohol, beer and wine
sales were 26 percent higher than
Ed Guernsey, chairman of the
Administrative Committee re-

ported that they are still looking
for alternative legal services for the
SRIA m an effort to reduce costs
Committee member Tammy
Bohannon said she feltthe Author-
ity was at the end of this cycle of
litigation "We had the hurricanes
and some unfortunate drownmgs,
so we are at the end of this," she
said "We have the flag system
which insulates us from most
drowning suits I wonder ifwe are
looking better in this area "
Guernsey asked Dottie Ford
to prepare a report for the last ten
years of non-drowning lawsuits
identifying legal fees and claims
paid to those injured
Hle added that measures have
already been taken to reduce legal
"We're asking the staffto take
a close look at the past to monitor
(SRIA attorney) Mike Stebbins'
bills We want staff to take on any
tasks they can comfortably do, and
we thmkwe will see some savigs
Mr Stebbms has been very coop-
erative m coming to positive reso-
lutions with regard to legal ex-
penses "
Billy Patterson, who owns azy
Day BeachRentals oftumbreilas and
chairs, heard the Authority discuss
his request to set up a volleyball
court near the Beach (I]ub
"It's for the pleasure of any-
one who wants to use it I don't

make a dime on it." he said
Staff had prepared a policy
for the volleyball court, which in-
cluded taking it down at night,
and provisions to ensure the
court would not block emer-
gency vehicles
lhis is a dynamic concept,"
Board member Vernon Prather said
"I thimk the policy needs a little
more work Lets see ifwe can work
a way around these technical is-
sues to satisfy the challenges "
Am olton to keep the policy in
committee passed
After the motion, Patterson
addressed the Board
"Let's get going am readyto
do what I can to make the Beach a
better, safer place I put surfwarn-

am willing to satisfy the require-
ments and all the rules Why wait
another few weeks'"'
Boardmember Dave Pavlock
said he thought they should let
him go ahead with the court in
the absence of a policy Ed
Guernsey agreed and wanted the
staff to refrain from any enforce-
ment until a policy can be
adopted The issue will remain in
The next meeting of the Au-
thority will be at their office at 5
p m on Wednesday, April 8 All
meetings are open to the public

I think my love of hats must
have begun with Easter Bonnets
I know I had the misfortune to be
born at a time when wearing them
was no longer considered stylish
Although hats had been worn for
thousands of years and bare-
headed ladies were likely thought
of as poor peasants or loose
It was the 1950's and while
there were women who still wore
hats that was mainly on televi-
sion Like Beaver's mom, who
never left home without a hat and
kept her high heels on all day I
can't remember my Mother wear-
ing or owning a pair of heels but I
do remember her hats
But when I put on a cowgirl
hat I became a cowgirll Wearing
an Easter "Bonnet" instantly pro-
pelledme into the movie star world
of glamour And don't forgetthose
tiny white gloves with the tiny,
shiny, white purses, which
matched the tiny, shiny, white
shoes Lord, I was inheaven! By
the end of Church, Easter Dinner
and the Easter Egg Hunt, most of
the white was covered with food
and grass stains, egg dye colors,
and God knows what else Butmy
hat always stayed pristine After
all, it couldn't be replaced as easily
as gloves or shoes
Mom and Dad made sure we
always had shoes, but hats were
only purchased for Easter So, you
see why I had to take such good
care, it had to last all year until the
nextEasterl No matter whattoys I
had, nothing could compete with
the hats
It amazes me that putting
something on your head and us-
ing a little imagination can trans-
form yourwhole world Of course,
by the 60's the big broad brimmed
floppy hippie hat had entered the
less-than-fashionable-world and
was donned by everyone under the
ageof30 This hat created a single
image hippie Some stores and
businesses would turn customers
away just because of this hat and
what it came to represent to the rest
of the world How weird is that?

That's a lot of power for one hat to
Some would say they are the
same person underneath the hat I
have great sympathy for them
What happened to their imagina-
tion? Andno one canforget Jackle
O's pillbox hat during the Camelot
reign Didn't it make you feel as if
everything was right with the world
when she appeared in public wear-
mg her little pillbox?
Before Ivan, I had a collection
of antique hats purchased at thrift
and consignment shops all across
America My wonderful optimis-
tic Mother reminded me that I at
least had gotten to wear nearly all
of them before the storm washed
them away I did and I'm telling
you there was a different feeling
and attitude with each one I be-
came many people under those
Hatsmakemy Imagination run
wild, and you should let yours get
wild and create an Easter Bonnet
this year Wear it to the Junkanoo
Contest Okay my friends, I gotta
get busy on my hat for the Easter

Bonnet Contest
So, on this Easter Sunday put
on your adorned hat and celebrate
the Resurrection of Jesus Christ,
our Lord Feel the beauty, grace,
love and imagination He gave to
eachofus 'Cause sometimes you
just need a hat for little mspirationP
Meanwhile, it's time to cook
This is my favorite recipe and my
favorite cake, so let's head to the

Easy Coconut Cake
1 Box Yellow (or white) cake mix
Mix and bake as directed Let
cool completely
Perfect Frosting
1 -8oz Cup cool whip
1 -8oz Cup sour cream
2 Tsp vanilla flavoring
2 Cup powdered sugar
2 Cups grated froz or fresh
coconut (sep into 1 cup ea)
Mix all ingredients well, re-
serving 1cup coconut Spread
over cooled cake then sprinkle with
remaining coconut Coconut can
be colored easily with food color-
mg get creative put on a hati
Happy Easter to all and I'll see
you in the Easter Parade

try Sauvignon Blanc Loire Valley (Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume) and -
Bordeaux (where it is blended with the Semillion grape to produce both fine wines, such
as Graves, and the great sweetwines of Sauteme and Barsac) It is also produced in a
wide range of styles in New Zealand, California (were it sometimes goes by the name
"fume blanc"), Australia, South Africa, and Chile Sauvignon Blanc is known for its
distinctive aroma, which can evoke the scents ofgrapefruit, lime and green melon
HINT When grown in cooler climates and fertile soils, Sauvignon Blanc can evoke
herbaceous smells and flavors

by E.K Hewson

Just last weekend I had the
opportunity to fly down to the
Beach from Washington, DC I
wasn't even gone a full three days,
but when I came home our family
cat, Sparky, treated me like I had
been away for a lifetime When I
walked into our m aster bedroom to
unpackmy overnightbag, Inoticed
Sparky was cuddled up on my pil-
low I figured it was just her way
of staking out her new found terri-
tory You know how that goes --
human lady was gone, feline
phenom takes over But something
told me this wasn't the case For
the first time since I rescued her
from certain death, she was look-
ing at me with her emerald green
eyes as "mom" not the "human
lady "
"Harrys," I yelled to my two
boys, "what's wrong with Sparky?
She's letting me pet her and she's
not moving from my part of the
I received a "don't know"
from young Harry and the Colonel
mumbled something about she's
been that way since Saturday nght
Since Saturday nghtl What do
you mean since Saturday night?
My precious little Sparky in her
pink camouflage collar and her
jeweled "Diva" name taghasbeen
onmypillow since Saturday night
Ohandtothink I flewhom e tovisit
my mom and missed probably my
only opportunity to bond with the
dam cat Just my luck
So I seized the moment and
tried to pick her up when she hissed
at me and became the reincarnate
of Linda Blair m the original Ex-
"Harrys," I yelled to my boys
again, "Sparky just hissed at me
and is still not moving from my
pillow Did something happen
while I was gone? And this time I
want answers "
"Dad found her collar in the
driveway and we've been feeding
this really cool boy cat that hangs
out on our porch now Can we
adopt him too?" fessed up young
The next thing I know the
Colonel was by my side explain-

mg that he let her out, but only for
about 30 minutes and she never left
the yard The man, who is trained
to spot inconsistencies on a battle-
field from 100 feet m the air, then
said that he didn't happen to no-
tice that when he let her back in
her collar was missing He was,
however, quite proud of himself
that he found it in the driveway on
Sunday morning before they came
to pickme up from the airport He
triedto give me an explanation on
how the collar has a safety latch
that easily comes apart to avoid
accidental strangulation and he
thoughtmaybe she hadremoved it
I gave him the look that clearly
communicated Sparky is the cat
that doesn'tknow enoughto come
m out of the ram or the snow and
there was no way she removed her
own collar
Then the Colonel morphed
into some kind of Marine Corps
version of St Francis ofAssisi He
was all of the suddenMr Humani-
tarian and I almost fell for it re-
membering he didjump off the Bay
Bridge to save a dog's life when
he was in flight school in
Pensacola He started telling me
how this male cat came to the back
door on Friday night and was hun-
gry, so he fed him Then he was
back on Saturday and Sunday He
even suggested that maybe this
other cat could be our outdoor cat
Our outdoor cat?l?
But somewhere among the pil-

lows, I heard a small meow I don't
speak feline, but I truly believe
Sparky was with me m solidarity
and trying to tell me that this male
cat was the reason why she was
cuddled up on my pillows and not
moving And because I don't
speak feline, it wasn't until I
shooed her from my spot in bed
that I realized she was truly hurt I
now had become Cat Woman with
an attitude and both Harrys knew
I was ready to pounce
Young Harry quickly was on
the back porch taking in the food
andwaterdishes TheColoneljust
handed me the check book and
made some comment about the
GPS upgrade on the sailboat could
wait Well duh
Turns out Sparky had been in
a pretty good cat fight and unfor-
tunately she lost She had a punc-
ture wound to her right side and
shredded claws on her right paw
After a thorough examination com-
plete with much hissing (I think cat
hissing is the equivalent to human
cursing) and a few shots from our
local vet, Sparky is now on the
Of course, once again order is
restored in our house She loves the
Colonel She tolerates the kid and
she still hates the human lady And
to think I was bamboozled by her
snuggling on my pillow and the
pitiful meow Hmm, maybe next
time I'11 make sure we get the up-
graded gear for our sailboat and
not our vet Until next time

Back in the days when it was
popular to have sensitivity training
sessions among clergy, Walter was
asked to lead a three-day clergy
retreat. As customary, Walter
shared meditations and led discus-
sions for the first two days. He
tried to model the benefits of be-
ing open to the inner voice, as well
as to one another. The participants
just could not move to that level.
They carried on superficial conver-
sations, told an occasional joke to
hide their uncomfortableness, and
would not move beyond that.
During a restless night when
Walter could not sleep, it became
clear to him that the clergy were
afraid of making themselves vul-
nerable ... sharing their true selves
with one another. They wanted to
project the image of persons in
complete control.
The next coming Walter gave
each participant several sheets of
red construction paper, instructing
them to tear off a strip of paper and
attach it to place on their bodies
where they had been injured in
some way. When they had all done
this, he told them to keep attach-
ing red paper to the sites of physi-
cal injuries until either all their

paper was gone or they ran out of
injuries. No one stopped until ev-
ery strip of paper was attached
somewhere. Walter asked everyone
to look around the room at the sea
of red, which represented their
woundedness. As they saw the
outward signs oftheir brokenness,
most ofthe participants also broke
through their outer defense. The
pretense that they could save them-
selves was gone. The sea of red
proclaimed that everyone suffers,
that we are all wounded, and that
none of us can save ourselves
through our own power. (Story
attributed to Susan Zerkus)
As Christians move through
this week known as "Holy Week"
we are reminded again of our vul-
nerability, that we are all wounded
in one way or another, and that we
need healing that comes from love
God's love and the love of one
another. The new commandment
given on what we observe as
Maundy Thursday was to "Love
one another, as I have loved you."
I believe the French philoso-
pher was right when he wrote, "The
way we treat others is the way we
treat God."
A blessed Easter to all!

I would like to tell you a story
about an Italian physicist and
Nobel laureate named Carlo
Rubbia. He published a report at
CERN, the European Center for
Nuclear Research, in 1993 on a ba-
sic design for a subcritical energy
amplifier. This type of nuclear
power reactor utilizes an energetic
particle beam which stimulates a
reaction in thorium. If you bom-
bard thorium with low energy neu-
trons, it turns into a rapidly decay-
ing isotope of uranium which re-
leases energy. This may be the al-
ternative energy source we have
been seeking for power generation.
What does this all mean?
There's a new energy source in
town, and its name is thorium. It is
number 90 on the periodic chart. It
is abundant on this planet. So
abundant in fact, that there is
enough thorium to generate power

Ski Club Trades

Snow For Sand

Flounder's Beach
The Pensacola Ski Club is head-
ing to the gently sloping white sands
ofPensacola Beach for their Spring
Party and Business Meeting, Sun-
day, April 19 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.at
The officer and board election
is on the agenda. The following
slates will be considered: Officers:
President Susan Naile; Vice presi-
dent Melinda Ross; Vice President
oftrips IlonaBorish; Treasurer Terri
Phillips; Asst Treasurer Cindy
Urmos-Clements; Secretary Beverly
Gay; and Past president/FSC del-
egate Al Maddux.
First year board
members:Michelle Mandel,
Fitzhugh L. Miller, Tim Bone, Jim
Clements, Paul Belt, Pam Ryland, Al
Austin, John Rogers, Bruce "Doc"
Holliday and Bob Breathitt.
Second year board members:
CherylAlter, Barbara Erhart, Denice
Hair, Ron Shaeffer, Karin Streetman,
Laura Tkach, Archie Hovanesian,
Diane Mielcarz,Alan Miller and Traci

for several thousand years at cur-
rent consumption. This new type
of power plant, called an Energy
Amplifier, would not have to con-
tend with a runaway reaction. The
reaction is more easily controlled.
If anything went wrong, the reac-
tion would stop, and the reactor
would cool down. Another nifty
aspect of thorium is its rate of de-
cay. It happens quite rapidly within
ten to twenty years. After 500
years, the thorium wastes would
be equivalent to the radioactive
level of coal ash. The energy am-
plifier produces very little pluto-
nium, and in addition to this; there
is also the possibility of using this
type of plant to rid the world of
existing plutonium.
So why aren't we using it? An
even more pointed question is this
- Why haven't we heard about
this? This could revolutionize the
world in supplying power for all
countries. Is there anyone pursu-
ing this technology? You bet there
is. India is taking the lead at the
Bhaha Atomic Research Center
near Kalpakkam. Their plan is to
build a plant based on Carlo
Rubbia's design and iron out any
problems that may occur. If India
succeeds, it may literally become
the powerhouse of the world. And
we need to jump on that electron
and follow the wave!

The Florida Trail Association hosts monthly hikes along the Dunes
Trail on Pensacola Beach. Rheba Mason, left, and Ginny Hinton, right,
take the lead as the group passes Portofino Resort heading east
toward the Florida Trail marker which denotes the start their hike
along the Dunes Path. Hikers should meet at the parking node across
from Portofino at 9 a.m. Friday, April 10 to participate in this free event.
