vealed that Lee's performance was

"Thank you for your leadership
and guidance of the SRIA," Gant

not be possible without the staff,"

we are strong If I look good, it is
because of them "

proving public safety with our life-
guards, and I would hate to have a
children over crossing this danger-
ous stretch of Ft Pickens Road"

Ihe discussion regarding the

initiated by board member Dr Tho-

with the nuts and bolts, who parks
where, that kind of study," Dr


Campanella said "It's not as impor-
tant as getting people out here We
need to look at how to bring people
to the Beach "

CATastropheAvoided
For the past few weeks I have
noticed a small puddle of water on
my kitchen floor, strategically lo-
cated in front of the freezer and
positioned as if it might be com-
ing from the automatic water and
ice dispenser located inthe freezer
door I knew it was not the freezer
on the fritz because we had just
spent a small fortune replacing its
mother board Plus I checked the
contents inside Ben & Jerry and
Bubba were frozen to the core
So I asked the Kid if he was
getting up in the middle night to
pour himself a glass of water and
then maybe spilling some of it on
the floor That was a negative
Then I remembered the Colonel
had a bad habit of over filling his
coffee pot using the filtered water
from the freezer door by getting
sidetracked by his Blackberry
buzzing He said he stopped that
practice after I handed him the
mop and suggested he clean the
entire floor, notjust in front of the
freezer Of course, I knew I wasn't
the cause of the mystery puddle
That only left one other resident
at the house -our cat, Sparky
I announced at breakfast to
both the Colonel and the Kid that
I figured out how every morning
there was a puddle on the kitchen


floor It was Sparky's fault Obvi-
ously she had figured out how to
jump from the glass top stove over
to the freezer and was pushing the
lever to get a drink They thought
she was so clever and immediately
gave her treats All I could think
of was a more colorful version to
the Disney movie title, "That Dar
Cat As I stood and ate my break-
fast (she was sitting on my stool),
Sparky gave me the look as if to
say, "Human Lady, I didn't do it
I only drink water from your
grandmother's heirloom crystal
bowls "
In the end, she was right
O A Ld


wasn't until the trickle became a
steady stream pouring onto the floor
from the ceiling above through are-
cessed light fixture, that we figured
out Sparky wasn't as clever as we
wanted to think she was
However in Sparky's cat eyes,
the Colonel is her hero because he
saved the day and she no longer has
to step around a puddle of water on
the floor to get to my bar stool The
Kid has continued to retain his tol-
erated status because he gave her a
half bag of fishy treats for no rea-
son Asforme, Ireceivedmy morn-
ing hiss and swat when I tried to re-
move her from my stool when the

Beach Advocates Board Discusses Issues


The Board of the Pensacola
BeachAdvocates held their meet-
ing under the trees at Morgan
Park, Friday, May 1 President Jim
Cox told the group that it had been
a full year since Judge Jones had
head the arguments on Ad Valo-
rem taxes for Beach residents and
had not yet handed down a deci-
sion
Cox discussed the Core Area
renovation and noted that the sur-
vey sent out by PBA had been
well received by Santa Rosa Island
Authority Executive Director Buck
Lee, the SRIA Board and
Baskerville-Donovan engineers
Discussing the size of hotel
rooms on the Beach, Cox said he
had talked to Commissioner
Grover Robinson on the issue, and
Robinson said the plan was a "hor-
rible political football "
The potential owners of the
former Clarion property and the
Days Inn have already secured
their requests to develop large
hotel rooms on Pensacola Beach
Board members discussed
the role that the PBA would play
in the upcoming planning pro-
cess for the core area They de-
termined that the PBA would act
as a conduit to be sure that
stakeholders are aware of the
opportunities to give input dur-

M ostly Nuts & Bots
SL By Candy Segar


No one treats their tourists bet-
ter than the folks on Pensacola
Beach. Pensacola Beach businesses
and residents have raised the bar
really high, but I have to tell you the
people in Walhalla, South Carolina
come close. I went to an auction in
Walhalla, and the people there were
so friendly.
I have been to a few auctions in
this country, but this one was quite
different. It was very festive, yet,
familiar; you felt as if you had walked
into a friend's living room. There was
a large concession stand which was
essential to the family atmosphere.
It also was essential to the man
who sat to my left. He announced at
7:30 p.m. that it was ice cream time. I
thought he was going to run over
me. I couldn't get out of his way fast
enough. He and his wife were un-
usual. He sat and read a book on
gardening and only occasionally
looked up. His wife slept through
the whole thing. How could you
sleep through "Do I hear 5,5,5,5,5,
who will give me 2,2,2,2?" And then
I wondered why they even came to
this? I soon realized why.
It was the people. I had to ask
one person where to get my num-
ber, and then I asked another man if
I could sit anywhere I wanted to. He
said, "Of course," and to pick the
most comfortable chair I could find.
I did, and, boy, was I glad. I sat there
for four hours.
While I waited I chatted with
yet another man about the proceed-


ings for the night. This is how it
stacked up. First the auctioneer sold
the furniture (most of it), then he
mixed it with the crystal andjewelry
which I had no interest in. Then he
stopped the auction and said. "It's
time to pick your boxes."
I asked the man behind me,
"What do I do?"
He said, "Just pick your boxes
of stuff you want and take it up front
to the tables and you have to bid
first at $5."
I had picked out three boxes.
One was a beautiful box from the
1930's with gloves, scarves and hats
from the 1950's. I won that one. The
other two were boxes full of doll
clothes. I won one and lost the other.
The one I won had an extra bonus.
It had mouse poop in it. I had it on
the floor and was taking the clothes
out and noticed little poops. Great! I
threw the box outside and put the
clothes in a container and hand
washed them. Well, what do you ex-
pect for $5?
I also was the wining bidder on
two vintage baby buggies one was
for dolls, the other one was for kids-
both from the 1960's. I think the folks
got a real kick out of me as I left. You
see I have a Miata and I had to put
the top down in order to get the two
buggies home. They were pointing
and laughing and I was laughing,
too.
I had so much fun that night
thanks to the nice folks in Walhalla,
South Carolina.


We are sometimes serious, and
sometimes humorous, when we
speak of doctors practicing medi-
cine. Actually, that is what happens.
A doctor cannot go to a medical
book and look up categories, such
as, "male, American, 6 feet tall, 230
pounds, 55 years old," and then find
the prescription that is acceptable
to all who fit that category. The rea-
son is that we respond to medicines
in different ways, depending on our
particular body. One reason we have
so many different kinds of medicines
designed for one ailment is because
some persons will respond positively
to one, while others will respond
negatively. The challenge of the
doctor is to try and determine which
medication will work best with that
particular body.
We sometimes hear, "Well, he's
a practicing Christian," or "She's a
practicing Jew," and we even get
more specific by saying, "She's a
practicing Catholic, or Baptist, or
Episcopalian, etc."
What is often meant is that the
person is serious about following
that particular expression of religion.
It's different than what happens with
the "practicing physician." How-
ever, there may be some similarities.
Religious practice has to do with the
ways in which we treat one another.
We may try to be kind and loving,
only to be rejected or even taken


advantage of. And we may be in-
sulting to others by the ways we
respond. Then we "practice" a dif-
ferent way to achieve the same re-
sult. As one person wrote, "Some-
times I practice being a religious
person, and sometimes I unfortu-
nately claim the benefits of member-
ship without deserving it. But I'm
working er, practicing on that."
A psychologist has suggested


that Christianity has focused too
much on "orthodoxy" right belief
- and not nearly enough on "ortho-
praxy" right practice. To me, the
right practice of religion is much
more important than trying to es-
pouse what some have insisted is
right belief. It requires both because
belief determines the manner in
which we live; and practice gives
evidence of our beliefs.
