she said "I am always so proud of
them "
"And let me tell you about our
blacklab, Blitz who has been a mem-
ber of our family ever since we
adopted him from the Humane Soci-
ety six years ago," LaMar added
"Ie is a ball of energy "
Formerly, LaMarwas te Assis-

She says she can't wait to get
started on her new ob although she

if she has been preparing to come to

"We were veiy fortunate to hire
Maureen LaMar" said Jeff Elbert,
president of the Beach Chamber
"She is a perfect match for our
needs "
Jeff noted that the Chamber
Board went through an arduous pro-
cess to reach the final decision since
more than 200 resumes were re-
ceived for the job
"We're looking forward to a
banneryear," Jeff said "Our Cham-

ber, whichnow has 104 membersis
planning a number of outstanding
events and promotions We're very
excited about the path we are tak-
ing "
And this path includes a per-
son who has already carved an im-
pressive niche in her adopted warm

ented lady do for funm She has veiy

When her family members who
still live m North Pole urge her to
return, she says, "No thanks "
IaMaris surroundedby awarm
sun and even warmer folks who are
her neighbors and friends Some-
how, the new Executive Director
does not see going back to the
Iditarod and wearing snow shoes as
a serious option
North Pole may be a greatplace
to visit in midsummer, but an island
in the Gulf of Mexco is home

Search For .faster Planner Begins

At last The Santa Rosa Is-
land Authority and Portofino
have finally agreed on a docu-
ment which will be the first step
in the implementation of the
much discussed Island Beautifi-
cation Plan The Board voted
unanimously at their April 8
meeting to approve the third,
and now, final wording and
funding of the Request for Quali-
fications to secure a nationally
known Master Planner
'The funding calls for
$150,000 to be taken from the
existing Island Beautification
Fund and will not be repaid If
any additional monies are
needed to secure the planner, up
to $150,000 may be allocated,
but must be repaid to the fund
"This document is an interim
agreement and does not change
the Portofino lease," said Board
member Tammy Bohannon
Deadline for submission by
prospective planners will be at
2p m on May 27
Board member Dr Thomas
Campanella commented that
there had only been one meet-
Ing to gather public input
"The Master Planner will
gather public input," Robert
Rinke ofPortofino said "Agood
planner will include the public
at the beginning, middle and the
end of the planning process "
The Board also approved
the hiring of Maureen LaMar as
the Executive Director of the

Pensacola Beach Chamber of
Jayne Bell, SRIA Director of
Administration, introduced
LaMar to the Board saying, "We
had over 200 applicants and
LaMar's experience and skills
make her perfect for this posi-
tion I was part of the Search
Committee with Jeff blbert,
Karen Cook, Jim Cox and Shelley
Johnson "
Beach Chamber President
Jeff Elbert addressed the Board,
"I am pleased to report to you
that Jayne Bell and Buck Lee
were so helpful in every step of
the search and selection pro-
cess On behalf of the Chamber
I would like to thank you for the
cooperation "
,1 la Cox of Pensacola Beach
Advocates presented an over-
view of the recent survey con-
ducted by the Advocates
T he survey, which had 247 lo-
cal respondents, reflected that
while they were mostly opposed
to a parking garage, their feelings
were that they found a parking
deck with a muli-use facility much
more acceptable
"There is an interest in the fu-
ture direction of the Beach," Cox
said "I urge you to take advan-
tage of the people who know the
Beach well There are some good
ideas in the survey responses
This does not mean they do not
want change "
Tammy Bohannon thanked

Cox for her work and said the sur-
vey had been easy to answer
Buck Lee filled the Board iii
on legal service fees which have
been undergoing SRIA scrutiny
for some time Buck told the Board
the amount of litigation, excluding
the drowning suits, amounts to
about $21,000 annually
"If we can hold to that
amount, I think that would be
good," he said
The Board, however, did not
make a decision onhow to handle
legal fees, but tabled the discus-
sion for now to allow staff more
time to monitor the fees
And Buck Lee won the right
to moonlight in case he wanted to
work at other jobs, such as con-
suiting or teaching, as long as it
does not create a conflict of inter-
est and is not detrimental to the
Lee also announced in his re-
port that there would be security
cameras installed on the Board-
walk soon
"it is unfortunate that we
have come to this," Lee said "But
we have to do it "
He also reported that the arms
at the Toll Booth will work prop-
erly by the end of this month and
will respond to the transponders
from a longer distance
The next meetings will be the
Committees which will convene at
5 p m Wednesday. April 22at the

And m this corer
It's been a little over two weeks
since our family cat, Sparky, found
herself on the losing side of a cat
fight After a quick, but rather ex-
pensive, visit to our local vet, she
seemed to be on the mend In fact,
in less than 72 hours she was back
to her finicky feline self and the
pecking order in the family had re-
turned to normal Sparky, because
the world revolves around her, the
Colonel, because she allows him to
live in the world which revolves
around her, the Kid, who would like
to be m her same galaxy, and me,
the one who tells her on a daily ba-
sis "Catpernicus meowed and
hissed, the world doesn't revolve
aroundyou "And like the rest ofthe
family, she doesn't appreciate my cat
humor either
So when she started limping
again, I wasn't sure if it was a ploy
for more baked salmon or if she was
truly still hurt I couldn't imagine our
vet had overlooked anything at that
first 15 minute visit Three different
injections, a stack of paperwork for
me to read and sign, and one boat
payment later, I thought for sure
Sparky was healed I was even ready
to get a witness and an Amen Ah,
but not so fast
The next thing I know The
Colonel starts commenting how she

can't put any weight on her back leg
The Kid starts to notice that she has
to dig her front claws into the suede
chair covers, leaving small tears in
the fabric, in order to jump up on
them I happily carry her upstairs to
her Diva Digs because I think it ac-
tually gives us a split secondto bond
She bites me in appreciation Things
are definitely looking up between
the two of us
As the responsible pet owner,
it fell upon me to return to the vet
with her for a follow-up visit You
could say this time I was going in
there like a Remora on a shark no
letting go until every piece of
Sparky's fur and anatomy was ex-
amined Well, Sparky's tail may
have been betweenher two legs, but
mine wasn't and it was a good thing
Once again the vet tried to tell me
that her hip and leg were fine and
the x-ray confirmed his findings
Call it a mother's intuition or more
realistically the fact I wasn't mak-
ig another boat payment for this
guy until I had a reason why m the
near future we would no longer be
calling our cat Sparky, but Gimpy I
wasn't shoving her in her "Kate I've
Been Spaded" carrier until I had an
Thenit dawnedonme Justlike
the time The Kid broke his arm and
the emergency room doctor insisted

nothing was wrong based on the x-
rays he ordered So I actually asked
him to humor me and x-ray The
Kid's humerus and sure enough we
found the break Unfortunately, the
only idea that popped into my mind
for this situation was the joke about
"he shot my Pa" and it didn't seem
appropriate, so I just asked the vet
if he could x-ray her paw because
her toes looked a little crooked Af-
ter wrapping the cat up in a towel
like a burrito, the vet tech pulled out
Sparky's right paw and waved a
wand over it Like magic the photos
appeared on the computer screen
and sure enough she had not one, but
two broken toes
One injection, more paperwork
to read and sign, and a boat payment
later Gimpy and I were on our way
home Turns out for cats, there is not
a thing you can do for broken toes
You can't even tape them together I
guess she won't be getting a
pawdicure anytime soon
Until next time

Mmos ty Nuts & Bolts
& S7' ~ByCandy Segar

My nephew, McFlye, is a futur-
istic thinker! I ponder his thoughts
and one in particular blew my mind.
He was talking about creating a de-
vice that would pick up the sun's
light and beam it back to Earth to
use as energy. We were discussing
alternative energy sources, and this
was his solution.
Well guess what? PG &E (Pa-
cific Gas and Electric) utility in San
Francisco is planning on purchas-
ing solar power from the Solarem
Corporation. Solarem plans on build-
ing a space-based solar power sys-
tem that could safely beam back en-
ergy to Earth, 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
The satellite would include gi-
ant mirror arrays which focus sun-
light onto photoelectric cells. These
mirror arrays would measure several
miles in width. The photoelectric
cells would generate gigawatts of
electricity. This energy would be
converted into microwaves trans-
mitted at a frequency that would be

best for Earth's atmosphere. A recti-
fying antenna array on Earth would
receive the microwave beam. The
receiving station would convert the
microwave energy into electricity.
This power would go directly into
the grid.
The designated date for deliv-
ery of this solar power transmission
is scheduled for 2016.The members
of Solarem consists often engineers
and scientists. Their plans are to
employ 100 more individuals in the
near future. Each member of Solarem
brings with them 20 years experience
in the aerospace industry. This ex-
perience includes Hughes Aircraft
Company, the U.S Air Force and
Boeing Satellite Systems. It would
take four to five heavy-lift launches
to put all the equipment for the
power-generating facility into orbit.
This could be the solution to pollu-
tion free energy.
And just think an eleven-year-
old was thinking about developing
this same technology and that gives
me hope!

My wife and I are the proud
great-grandparents of two children -
one nearly seven years old, and the
other nearly four. Their world consists
of their parents, grandparents, and
great-grandparents, and is limited to
family, school, play, and television.
They don't understand much about
the world (although they are
learning), and interpret everything
from their limited perspective. They
will soon begin to comprehend that
knowledge and experiences are
limitless.At least, I hope they will.
Our world becomes very small
and parochial if we believe there is
nothing beyond our understanding.
My wife's cousin was a senior

scientist on the Hubble Telescope
Project. His pre-teen years were spent
building telescopes and locating
stars. The Orion Nebula was one of
the first objects he saw. His main field
became "Observational Astrophysics
of Gaseous Nebulae" and wrote a
book, "The Orion Nebula: Where
Stars Are Bor."
Bob knew that his, and
everyone's information about
gaseous nebulae, were limited and
inadequate. The more he studied, the
more he uncovered many of the
secrets of the universe. I think
sometimes we make great mistakes by
thinking we have all the information
that is necessary, and make decisions

on that, rather than realizing there is
so much beyond our knowledge and
My great-grandchildren live in
such small worlds, whereas Bob's
world is beyond the imagination of
most of us a world that keeps
growing because we keep learning
more about it. Bob wrote, "There are
some mornings that I can't wait to
get in to the office to find out what
lies around the next corner." He
knows that reaching one comer will
lead to an ever-increasing number of
comers. How wonderful it is when
we come to the realization that we can
not in our lifetime know all there is to

@kV Two Apples
and call me in the morning...
The doctor is in and she's hip, too!
By Tracey Pinkston, J.D., M.D.

Recently, I was on the receiv-
ing end of the medical system It
was the veterinary medical system
and I was not actually the patient,
but the feeling was very personal
My puppy had become e ill and I spent
two weeks going to the vet daily for
the dog to have treatments and car-
ing for him at home at night Dur-
ing that time, I thought what a fnght-
ening experience it would have been
if I had not known exactly what was
gomg on Then I realized that most
patients don't have the luxury of
knowing exactly what is going on
with their medical care andmay feel
confused or worried about what is
happening to them Idecidedthat I
would give you some pointers for
dealing with your doctor
First and foremost, make sure
the doctor explains everything to
you in terms that you understand A
person is not stupid or uninformed
if they do not understand "doctor
speak" If your doctor will not ex-
plain something to you in your terms
or makes you feel bad for asking for
a better or different explanation,
then it's time to find a new doctor
Also, do not take everything said by
your doctor as "gospel If you think
something is not right for you, chal-
lenge him or her about why he feels
the recommended therapy or medi-
cation is the best thing for you If
he cannot, then see number one
above Remember that you know
your body better than anyone else
Do not fall victim to thoughts of
doing whatever the doctor says ust
because "she's the doctor" Also,
always get details about any treat-
ments or medications--risks, ben-
efits, side effects, long term goals
Speak up and do not be afraid
This is an era where paternal-
ism in medicine is gone Well, it
may not be gone, but it should be
Patients and doctors must be part-
ners medical care Ifyoufeelyou
are in a paternalistic relationship
with your doctor, then make your-
self into a partner You can do this
by asking more questions and chal-
lenging your doctor for explanations

of alternative therapies or medica-
tions that maybe available If your
questions are falling on deaf ears and
your doctor expects you to do what
he says because he's the doctor, then
maybe it's time to find a new one
who will be your healthcare partner
It may also be helpful to ask
for written instructions following
each visit It may be difficult to re-
member everything said at a doctor's
appointment--what medications to
stop, what new ones to start, and how
to change the number of pills taken,
or which new vitamins and supple-
ments to shop for, or when to go to
the lab or schedule a test can all be
put on a checklist for you to take
home If your doctor doesn't give
you a checklist like that, then you
can take notes during the visit One
patient I have seen even tape
records appointments so she can
refer back to exactly what was said
Your doctor may not like that, but
it is certainly a way to document
what happened at the appoint-
mentl Generally, such extreme
measures are not needed and may
make your doctor hesitant to say
anything, but your written notes,
or an instruction list from the doc-
tor can be very helpful
These are just a few examples
of things you can do to become more
of a partner in your healthcare ex-
perience The bottom line istomake
sure you are a partner and that you
do understand everything that is go-
ing on with you and treatments you
are receiving, so that nothing is mys-
terious or confusing or frightening
(except probably the bill)

Keep Reading -Please always
consult your doctor before starting
or stopping any medication or nu-
tritional supplement

Beach Fish Hatchery
Born In The Sixites
Used For Pompano
Morre Drees, who is the Island
Times resident trivia buff, re-
sponded to our plea for more mfor-
mation about a Fish Hatchery lo-
cated on the eastern end of
Pensacola Beach Drees, who is a
retired United States Navy Com-
mander, lived on the Beach until
Hurricane Ivan destroyed his home
Morrie writes
Kathy Hams' father poured
some of the concrete for the fish
hatchery which was owned by Dr
Sam Monroe. Dr Monroe was a past
president ofthe World Manculture
Society and farmed the sea in
Pensacola andKey Westforseveral
years, working with oysters and
The hatchery was built in the
1960's to raise Pompano and for
various reasons failed Some say
that Pompano required more saln-
ity than was available at Range
Point due to freshwater spnngs in
the vicinity. The ponds were only
waist deep and they got too warm
in the summer Anyhow Iwould con-
clude that theyfailedbecause ofen-
vironmental reasons.
This is all I have been able to
piece together I hope it helps.

Bill Lipscomb of Navarre, left, and Bob Hoard from Fort Walton Beach, weighed
in their two best fish on April 4 at Paradise Bar and Grill during the Emerald
Coast Redfish Club Tournament. For all their efforts, the team could not over-
take Chad Skeeles and George Johnson, who won first place.
