Volume II, Number 24 Pensacola Beach, Florida March 28, 2007


Easter on the Island is a weekend full of ceremony, tradition and whimsical celebrations. Residents and visitors will rejoice at waterfront sunrise
Easter services. The Krewe of Junkanoo will host their annual Easter Party complete with deviled egg and Easter Bonnet contests. And, the Easter
bunny will leave brightly colored eggs easily spied on the white sands of Pensacola Beach. These young Beach residents are preparing for the annual
Easter Egg Hunt at the Beach Community Church, Saturday, April 7. Readying their baskets for the big weekend are (L to R): two-year-old Lauren
Pinkston, Jesiah Fitzgerald, 6, and seventeen-month-old Sissy Rowe. Story, Page 2.

Barefoot on the Beach


By Jane Waters Cooper


I was attracted by a photo of
man, wearing a tuxedo, and stand
ing in a field ofgrain in a brochure
I received about two years ago.
The man's name was Heintzman
and he was standing in a field of
golden flax on his farm in Onaka,
South Dakota. My curiosity was
piqued, so I read the entire bro
chure. Why he was dressed in
formal attire as if to attend a Mardi
Gras Ball was never made clear. I
think he was accepting an award;
however, what flax can do for you
was made extremely clear.
Peppered with little phrases
like II .... ji...- Dakota
Flax Gold for happy longevity"
and "just for the well of it." This
text was entertaining as well as
informative. At least to me who
had never had a speaking ac
quaintance with a lignan. A lignan,
it seems, is an anti-cancer com-
pound found in many plants, but
one of the richest sources is Da
kota Flax Gold. For sure. For in-
stance, according to the brochure,
you would have to eat 90 pounds
of cabbage at one sitting to get
the amount of lignans contained
in a fourth cup of DFG Or you
could try consuming 82 pounds
of bananas, 75 pounds of straw-
berries, 26 pounds of broccoli, or
12 pounds of wheat, And I always

paint!
By now, I'mhooked. And, al
though everyone is aware that
eating Omega 3 is essential to a
healthy diet, hardly anyone
reaches the required input. Here


comes the flax again. It is known
to be one of the richest sources
of Omega 3s. A deficiency of
Omega 3s can cause all kinds of
problems. Fish oil and eating cold
water fish come highly recom-
mended to augment the Omega 3
requirement.
Well, flaxjust happens to be
a natural source of Omega 3,
lignans, and fiber. As the bro
chure said, "Eat Flax. Save the
whales."
I have been an off and on,
sort of vegetarian most of my


adult life. At first, I followed this
path because I couldn't stand the
apparently terrible treatment of
animals which provide food. I did
finally relax my vegan standards
and included fish and chicken in
my diet, Now, along comes flax. It
seems like it is a perfect food
source. Besides, if it replaces sar
dines that's all to the good.
So, I have set my own pa
rameters concerning flax. Every
morning I eat the same breakfast,
one-fourth cup of flax, a half cup
of blueberries, a glass of orange


juice, and a cup of decaf. Guide-
lines on the flax are that it must
be kept refrigerated or frozen and
it must be ground fresh every day.
I guess if you eat the little seeds
in their natural form, they don't
do what they are supposed to do,
They have to be ground. Dakota
Flax Gold sells flax in varying
amounts. The starter kit contains
a grinder and three one pound
bags of the seeds. I ordered the
starter kit and have been eating
flax for my breakfast cereal for two
years.


Hundreds of Volunteers Expect To Win the Beach Trash Battle


The Santa Rosa Island Au
thority and Escambia County are
looking forward to seeing a pre
Ivan clean Pensacola Beach by
afternoon on April 14. The two
governmental agencies are spon
scoring a Team Up To Clean Up
Day from8:30 a.m. to 1:30p.m. on
Saturday, April 14.
Residents who are able to
clean their yards before April 14
can put bags of trash at the road
side on that day for free pick up.
"This is an Amnesty Day, if
you will," said Buck Lee, SRIA
General Manager. "We don't want
you to clean out your garage and
bring out appliances and
couches. We want you to clean
up your yard and we will come
along and pick up the bagged
trash,"
And the Island Authority is
offering help to those residents
who cannot clean up properties

said. To ask for assistance, con-
tact the SRIA office at 932-2257.
Volunteers are asked to sup
ply their own gloves, but trash
bags will be provided. Water will
be available.
Bob West, Safety Director
commented, "It's a great idea to
bring your own water bottle and
sunscreen. We will have emer
agency personnel available for
heat related problems."


Commissioner Grover
Robinson and Buck Lee will open
the community project in the Ca
sino Beach parking lot with a few
words. Volunteers will receive
their assignments and the actual
clean up begins at 9 a.m.
Commissioner Robinson is
enthusiastic about this commu-
nity effort. "I will be there on
April 14 and am bringing my
whole family with me to the
Beach Clean Up," he said.
The Pensacola Beach
Chamber of Commerce is sup
porting this effort and playing
a major role in the clean up.
Chamber President Jeff
Elbert, said, "I am very pleased
to see the whole community
come together to plan an island

Buck Lee noted that the
County will send in two road con
tractors to begin extensive clean
up on the island's rights-of way.
He also pointed out that the SRIA
will continue to urge residents
and businesses to keep the island
clean. Plans are to name a yard of
the month for residents. Busi
nesses or groups can adopt an
area to maintain throughout the
year.
And when the Beach is all
sparkling clean on April 14, the
volunteers will be invited to the
tent in the Visitor's Information

"Spring has sprung and the
grass is riz. I wonder where my
new car is?" said Cathy Long as
she awoke on the first day of
Spring. I awoke on the same
morning to find my old Caddy
smashed and pushed 10 feet. from
its parking space. By the time we
put the puzzle together, Kathy's
brand new Volkswagon convert
ible was found on the mainstreet
of downtown Elberta, Alabama,
abandoned by a car thief and
blocking traffic! It seems the thief
stole Kathy's car from her drive-
way and barely drove it a block
before colliding with the giant
Caddy. Even though Volkswagon
pieces and parts were strewn
along the road, along with glass
from broken headlights, and a
deployed air bag, the thief still
managed to drive that car all the
way on Hwy. 98 to Elberta! Can
you believe it? My neighbors
heard the crash and saw the man
get out of the car, hide, then re-
turn and drive away. And I slept
through the whole thing! Surely,
alcohol was involved I'd hate to
think sober people do that!
Well, fasten you seat belts
Islanders, it looks like we're in for
the "Toads Wild Ride" this sum-
mer! .
What great St. Paddy's Pub
Crawl! Be proud, that's a tough
group in which to attempt to
stand out. But some people defi
nitely made it happen. Queen

kets filled with treats and eggs,
but because my Mother made
sure we all had brand new Easter
outfits! Oh yeah, I'm talking
about from the skin out new
undies, lacy socks, frilly dresses,
shiny white "church" shoes for
summer, gloves, hats and the
obligatory shiny white purse.
(My Mother never went any
where without her purse she
even took it fishing!) Of course,
by the end of the day, most all of
the 'shiny' stuff was either discol-
ored, stained, torn, or all of the
above. When Melanie and I


moved to the Beach back in 1983,
we established our own tradition
of buying a new swim suit every
Easter. (Since we spent the most
time in a swim suit all summer, it
made much more sense, to me
anyway. Itneverdid catch onwith
my Mother!) Mom always
cooked so many eggs, that, of
course, we were eating them all
week. Luckily, we liked eggs as I
know some people that don't.
But, then, as Mom always said, "
That's why we have chocolate &
vanilla ice cream". (Now that I
have a grand daughter, I love
quotin' Mama!) This week's
recipe is a new variation on an
old recipe. Everyone has a recipe
for deviled eggs and this one just
puts a seafood spin on it. Don't
be afraid to add things you like
and leave out what you don't.
Don't forget to "fancy-up"
your Easter Bonnet in time for the
Krewe ofJunkanoo's Easter Bon
net Party! Okay, let's cook....

Crab Deviled Eggs
12 hard boiled eggs
2 cans, 6 oz. ea crabmeat
V Cup mayonnaise
1 green onion, fine chopped
1 Tbsp finely chopped celery
2 tsp. spicy brown mustard
1 tsp. freshly minced parsley
Salt & pepper to taste
3 dashes hot sauce
3 dashes Worcestershire
sauce
Additional minced fresh parsley

Cut eggs in half, lengthwise,
and remove yolks. Set whites
aside and mash the yolks in a
bowl. Add the crab, mayonnaise,
onion, celery, mustard, parsley,
salt and pepper, and both sauces.
Mix well. Pipe or spoon mixture
into egg whites. Sprinkle with ad-
ditional parsley. Refrigerate un-
til served.
Here's a great tip for peeling
boiled eggs: let eggs cool to room
temperature in cooking pot. Place
lid on pot and shake vigorously
for about 20-30 seconds. Eggs
should be coming out of their
shells, when you remove lid. If
not, shake again.
Enjoy, have a safe and
Happy Easter.

Is It A Hotel, A Condo Or Both SRIA, County Commission Seek Answers


When is a condo not a
condo? When it is a hotel room.
When is a hotel room not a hotel
room? When it is a condo. And,
who will determine which is
which?
The Escambia County Board
of County Commissioners is ex
pected to have the answers soon.
But, not before several meetings
on the issue take place, including
a public hearing on April 10. The
controversy came to the front
when the Planning and Zoning
Board approved a change in the
existing hotel room definition last
month. They endorsed changing
the owner occupancy from two
to sixteen weeks. To many Beach
people, this change opens the
door for the construction of con
dos. It also opens a can ofworms.
A Santa Rosa Island Author
ity sub-committee workshop last
Tuesday attracted a large group
of people who presented their
ideas. The Committee was com-
posed of Vernon Prather, SRIA
chairman, Kelly Robertson and
Fred Grant, board members.
Robertson and Gant did not at
tend the meeting, so Prather con
ducted the meeting along with
SRIA staff.
Mary Bolman, Administra
tive Manager, presented a his
tory and facts on the definition
including the notation that the
square foot area of a hotel room
had already been changed at the
county level from 500 feet maxi
mum to no maximum in 2006.
Mary produced figures on
the amount of revenue the SRIA
receives from hotel rooms and
condos. Using Portofino as an
example, the annual income to the


SRIA is $1378 as compared to
$1816 per unit from the Hilton
Garden Inn. The figures on the
Emerald Isle condo is $960 per
unit compared to $1319 per unit
from Springhill Suites.
Following Mary's present
tion, developers and residents
voiced their opinions. SRIA
board members present at the
meeting were Dr. Thomas
Campanella, Tammy Bohannon,
and John Peacock.
Thomas Campanella favors
a regulation which limits the size
and length of owner stay.
"I believe we need the rev
enue that is generated from ho-
tel guests," he said.
John Peacock felt that the
market should drive the develop
ment of hotels.
He said, "I believe the de
velopers intend to build hotels
and run them like hotels."
Tammy Bohannon added
her opinion. "I am thankful that
we have developers who are will
ing to invest in Pensacola
Beach," she said. "I think we
need to look to architectural
guidelines and not limit size. I
think we need to make sure these
are really hotels and that the use
cannot change over time to a
condo."
Robert Rinke, Levin Rinke
Resort Realty, told the group that
condo financing is a very quick
way to get development money
back.
"Of course they are highly
motivated to see this happen.
But, the fact of the matter is that
transient guests spend 300 times
more than others on Pensacola
Beach. The flag hotels on

Pensacola Beach are some of the
most successful in the country."
Jeff Townsend, representing
Innisfree Corporation said, "We
want to build hotels. If we wanted
to build condos we would ask for
a rezoning to build them. We want
to build better than average ho
tels. Get away from the Redneck
Riviera."
Jim Cox was opposed to the
new definition based on the pos
sibility of less revenue to
Pensacola Beach.
"Do what is best for the
Beach," he said. "I fear that a
change in hotel room definition
will end up with unrented prop
erty which the owner has no obli
nation to put on the rental mar
ket." Jim and his wife Lila own a
home, three condos, and a Hilton
Towers unit on the beach.
Joe Endry, Beach real estate
broker and developer, whose comr
pany managed the former Clarion
Suites implored the board to study
the market relating to this regular
tion.
"It think it is most important
that you do extensive research into
the trends in the hotel business.
The transient consumers want up
scale, larger suites. It is still a ho
tel and the guests fit the defini
tion. In order to have that upscale
hotel built, some units have to be
sold to owners," Endry said.


The SRIA has received let
ters from Grover Robinson,
Escambia County Commissioner,
and from Bill Griffith, former Chair
man of the SRIA board.
Robinson made several rec
ommendations, and he told the
Board Santa Rosa Island should
be excluded from the ordinance.
"Over the next three months,
I propose that we readdress this
issue with both sides to research
the issue in depth to ensure that
the goals of the SRIA and
Escambia County can be accom
plishedwith this ordinance. I rec
ommend that the SRIA and the
County work together to estab
lish the proposal, and report back
to the Island Authority and the
BCC by the end of this summer."
Bill Griffith, in his letter,
voiced many objections to the
condo-hotel financing. "I do
not believe changing the policy
on defining hotel-condo for fi
nancing is the answer. Appar
ently, the very large hotel and
tourist attraction theme park
that is proposed for the Fort
Pickens Road Holiday Inn prop
erty flies in the face of what Mr.
MacQueen is proposing," the
letter stated.
Joe McCay, general man
ager of the former Holiday Inn
confirmed Griffith's remarks
when he spoke to Island Times

"When we develop our
property it will be a hotel in the
strictest sense of the word. There
is not a condo option on the de
velopment," Joe said.
Griffith was critical of the
manner in which the current ho
tel definition was approved and
the way it reached the Planning
and Zoning Board.
"It is interesting to see that
after working with the SRIA
Board and staff, and agreeing
with the definition of a condo
hotel, Julian MacQueen went to
the Planning Board in September
2006 to have the room size elimi
nated without any input or knowl
edge of the action by the SRIA.
Further, the present change was
placed on the Planning Board
agenda, February 13, 2007 with
out their staff having prior knowl
edge of this matter, and certainly
without any notification to the
SRIA of the action being taken."
So, the matter is still up in
the air, pending a decision which
may be made at future meetings.
The SRIA sub-committee will
hold a workshop at 11:30 a.m. on
Tuesday, April 3 at the Authority
office. In the meantime, Prather
will be working with the SRIA at
torney and staff to draft a regular
tion on the issue. The workshop
is open to the public.






Margeaux Makes The Grade Invents Pensacola Beach Game


Life is not all fun and games
for ten-year-old Beach resident
Margeaux Taylor. The charming
fifth grade student at Episcopal
Day School got down to the seri
ous business of inventing as a re-
cent school assignment.
Margeaux's teacher Nancy Norris
challenged her to enter the Inven
tion Convention. So, Margeaux
invented a board game and named
it the Pensacola Beach Game.
"I thought a long time and
came up with a bunch of topics,
but I finally decided I wanted to
invent a board game about
Pensacola Beach," said Margeaux.
Her parents, Angie and John
Taylor were amazed at the effort
and time that Margeaux dedicated
to her invention, but were not sur-
prised by the results.
The game which Margeaux
carefully laid out on her living room
floor consists of a full color map of
Pensacola Beach. The game pieces
are miniature silver flip flops. The
playing cards are brightly deco-
rated featuring hand drawn beach
wildlife. It was all stored in a blue
sand bucket. Margeaux beams as
she gives instructions on how to
play the Pensacola Beach Game.
"It's really very easy. Anyone
can play, even my five year-old sis
ter Madeline," she giggles. "The
object of the game is to travel all
over the beach and the first one
who arrives at the Boardwalk for
ice cream wins."
The game hoard has yellow
spaces shaped like suns for play
ers to advance along. Each player
draws a card and follows the in-
structions on it. Sometimes you are
rewarded with moving forward for
being "turtle friendly" and some-
times you have to go two spaces
back for "stepping on a stingray"
The artwork is whimsical as are the
eco and beach friendly instruc-
tions.
As part of her assignment,
Margeaux tested her game to see
if other children would enjoy it. She
admits that one of her peers did
not like it, but surmised that was
because he did not win. She
wanted the results to be fun and
educational.
"Everyone likes playing the
game. I hope players leam things
about the beach and our environ-
ment, too. I think visitors and beach

Margeaux is notjust an inven-
tor; she also is an accomplished

rus. But swimming is her favorite

enough to swim I go swimming in
the Gulf or in Little Sabine every-
day. "
When asked about her favor
ite game, Margeaux admits that her
new favorite is the Pensacola
Beach Game. Before that, she used
to play a math board game called
Totally Tut. Math, however, is not
her favorite subject in school,
physical education is.
The energetic entrepreneur
intends to market her Pensacola
Beach Game, so everyone can play.
She has created a website at
www pensacolabeachgame.com
for that purpose. But, as you might


"It is kinda like a lemonade
stand," she said laughingly "Only
it's soap."
Her talent for capturing the
magic of the island that is her home
and reproducing it as a board
game is stunning, but not surprise
ing after you spend some time with
her It is apparent that she welcomes
the chance to share her enthusi-
asm for the beach.
"I love Pensacola Beach. It is
the best place in the whole world
to live" she announced.
And, as for the school as
signment, Margeaux received
an A plus.

Many people may wonder
why Easter egg hunts are so
popular around Easter. The
Internet is a great source of infor
mation. One article indicated that
an average of 72 million dozen
eggs were purchased at super
markets in the United States in
2005. Due to the fact that many
families decorate eggs for Easter,
or use eggs as part of the Pass
over Seder meal, during the week
prior to Easter, the total sold was
"b I I I ,I I h I II Ie
number reached 93.4 million
dozen.
Eggs, as a symbol of new life
and rebirth, have been around for
centuries Long before the birth
of Jesus, pagan people used eggs
to celebrate the return of the sun
and the rebirth of nature each
sping. Jewish people used a
roasted egg on the Passover
Seder plate as a symbol for life
and the hope of salvation for
many. Christians have adopted
the egg to represent the Resur


reaction.
So, when we see children
out enjoying hunting decorated
eggs, it is more thanjust an active
ity. It spans ages, cultures, and
varied religious traditions, and is
representative of deeper mean
ings that our children may have
yet to learn.

Church will conduct the annual
Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday,

E spS* R report
E Esposito Su
by __b
Freddy
Esposito


It seems that our Santa Rosa
Island Authority wants to rename
part of Via de Luna after Allen
Levin, the Portofino developer.
Now, before I start this, let's all
take a big deep breath.
The renaming of roads hap
pens all the time all over the coun
try. It's to honor people who have
contributed to the local area.
People who have made positive
change. People who have made
a difference.
The Levins, who I have
known for years, have made
changes. Lots of them.
But, I rarely remember the
Levins let's say hanging out at
the Tiki with Fred Bates or fish
ing the pier with Joe Sealy.
I don't remember them surf-
ing with me and Yancy and
BZR,or hanging out at Kevin's.
Look people, there's noth-
ing wrong with the intention of
naming a road after someone who
is a pillar of the community.


But let's be careful. Let's
represent the spirit of our small
beach community, too.
So, I want to suggest a
name that really represents the
flavor of the beach. TWO
WORDS....HARRY GOWENS
Harry gave back to this
beach with his love and time.
He built the first school with
money out of his pockets, not
for profit, but for the children.
Harry wanted this beach to
prosper, without over develop
ment and have this thing they
call soul.
If we are to represent our
beach with a positive force,
something that our children will
appreciate, then it is our re
sponsibility to uphold tradition.
It is our responsibly to honor
the people that have lived and
worked hard on this beach.
Think about this. What do
we tell our children? "Hey, this
road is named for the guy who


was a developer." Or "This road
is named for the guy who built
the first and only school from
the kindness of his heart."
Hmmm? Really think people.
What are we doing here?
There are tons of people
who have made a difference
here on our beach. Drees, Tun
ers, Waters and many more. But
to rename the road for a devel
oper doesn't make much sense
to anyone who has lived here
all his life
Let there be no mistake, I
am not discounting what Allen
Levin has done and I am not
putting down the SRIA's idea
to honor him. I'm just saying
stop and think!
Legacy is forever Set an
example for ourchildren. Some-
thing they can be proud of.
Write letters. Go to the
Santa Rosa Island Authority
meetings. Put your two cents in!

My Fishing Experience

By Pete Della Ratta and Kevin Maye


To the Young at Heart;
This story is about an eighth
grade student Kevin Maye from
Woodlawn Beach Middle School
who participated in last year's first
Fishing and Boating Curriculum
held at the school. An avid fish
erman, he tells his recollection of
the first experience he had on the
water with his dad.
Look for future writing and
stories from our future anglers
and boaters.
My Fishing Experience
What is your most memo
rable moment in your fishing his
tory? One of my most memorable
experiences is when I went deep
sea fishing for the first time.
Deep Sea Fishing
When my Dad and I went
deep-sea fishing for the first time
we did not know what to expect.
We had never been fishing in the
Gulf of Mexico in a 57-foot boat
before. The boat was coming out
of Destin, Florida. The name of
the boat was Sweet Jody. My Dad
told me that we were going to go
out fishing for my tenth birthday.
My birthday was going to be dur
ing the school week, so we went
on the Saturday before. I was re
ally looking forward to the day
that we were going to go fishing
on the Sweet Jody
Lucky Bait Fish
Before we went to the dock
that morning we stopped and
fished for baitfish that we could
use for bait to try to catch bigger
fish. We had pretty good luck
and caught some pinfish, croaker
and a couple of finger mullet in
our cast nets that we could use
for bait on our trip. We hoped
that our luck would continue
through the day that we had
planned.
When we got to the boat
docks we were a couple of min-
utes early so tried to catch a
couple more baitfish there. We
saw a couple of ladyfish swim in
real quick and we thought that if
we caught them we could use
them as cut bait for grouper and
snapper. I tried cast after cast but
they werejust too fast for me. All
I could catch was pinfish and the
occasional croaker. By that time
a couple more people showed up
and they were lining up by the
boat. So we started to line up,
too and then we started to board
the boat.
Boarding the Boat
We were near the back right
side. There were about fifteen
other people going with us on the


Sweet Jody. When we got on
the Sweet Jody we waited a
couple of minutes to get situ
ated then we got ready to get
underway.
TheFirstSpot
It was about a half hour
trip to the first spot we were
going to try. We caught trigger
fish and mangrove snapper. My
Dad even caught a red snapper
that was within the legal limit. We
fished or a couple of minutes then
we brought up our lines and
moved to our next spot.
Snapping Up Fish
We drove for about 15 min
utes then we stopped and
dropped out our lines again. We
caught mutton snapper and group
per. We did not get much action
and moved to the third spot.
Amberjack
There, the first time I
dropped my line I had a nice bite.
At the same time my Dad had a
good bite, too. I brought my fish
up first and then one of the
deckhands got a gaff. The
deckhand said that it was an am
berjack. Acouple ofminuteslater
my Dad had finally brought up
his amberjack. He put them along
with our other fish we had caught
that time in the cooler.
A King at the Last Spot
Then we had time forj ust one
last spot. So we headed there and
dropped our lines. We didn't
have any bites for the first 10 min
utes then there was something
that was nibbling at the end of
my line. At first I thought it was a
snapper. It was yanking line out
as fast as I could bring it in. It
took awhile before I brought it up
to the surface. As soon as I got
the fish near the surface, the fish
kept going back down. Just like
when I caught the amberjack, the
deckhand got the gaff. When the
deckhand gaffed the fish he said
it was a king mackerel. My Dad
and I have heard of people catch
ing king mackerel and smoking

them. We asked the deckhand if
the mackerel was in legal size limit,
which it was. After that we caught
a couple of snapper and grouper,
which were size limit too. The
deckhand put the fish that we
caught in the cooler with the
other ones we had caught earlier.
Fish Stories
We soon started to head
back to the dock. While some of
the other people were fishing,
they had caught some weird fish.
When we were heading back to
the dock, the deckhands were
telling people about the fish. One
of the fish was a remora. The
deckhand said the remora had a
suction cup on the top of his head
that stuck to sharks and cleaned
them. Another fish was a robin
fish. The robin fish had little legs
that it used to walk on the sea
floor. It also had fins on the side
that looked like wings. After the
deckhand showed us and told us
about the neat facts about the
fish, my Dad and I went into the
cabin and ate a little bit. After
about 15 minutes, we arrived back
at the dock. When we got to the
dock the deckhands were fillet
ing the other people's fish.
HeadingHome
After we watched them we
got our fish cooler, got into our
truck and headed home. When
we got home we had to clean the
fish. We took our time to clean
them to make sure there were no
bones. That night we cooked
some of the fish on the grill. That
experience was a great one and if
I had the chance again, I would
like to take it again! That is my
most memorable experience and
it always will be!

Spring has sprung and ev
eryone is headed to the Beach.
The water is a tad chilly yet, but
it still feels good to sit on the
sand with a drink in your hand.
Don't worry about what to pack
in your beach bag. Here's some
hints:
Lip Gloss is critical for
preventing chapped, dried out
skin, but even more impor
tantly, for avoid sunburned lips!
Look for SPF 15 or more for the
best protection for your kisser.
You don't need found
tion, unless it is a light one
which contains sunscreen.
Waterproof mascara to
accent your eyes. It won't slide
down your face after swimming
or a game of volleyball.
To add some color use a
natural or light pink lipstick. But
keep it in a ziplock bag in your
cooler. Eye shadow and lipstick


tend to melt in the Pensacola
Beach sun.
No matter how badly you
want a tan, bring sunscreen to
protect your precious skin from
overexposure!
Just in case you do get a
sunburn, do your body a favor
and slap on some aloe. Amedium
sized plastic bottle is more than
you will need, and you'll thank
yourself for remembering it if you
happen to fall asleep on the
beach.
Have you ever been caught
in a sand storm? Well I have, and
I can't stress enough about the
value of a bottle of eye drops in
case those pesky particles of
sand find their way into your
eyes, whether by a storm itself or
by a playful game of football or
beach soccer. Though they are
possibly the most obvious item,
don't forget your sunglasses!

cial standing. White sheets, like
Egyptian cotton, were de rigueur.
It's time to reflect and return
to the classics. Planning a home
should begin with the bedroom,
where the couple should share
their most intimate moments. The
marriage bed, plumped full with
down and sleek, cool and crisp
sheets, should be inviting and
soothing for the couple to seek
their moments of quiet, respite,
and joy. Imagine how much
longer our relationships can last
when soothed and rested.
Take time to live the beauti
ful life as a couple, investing in
the areas of your home where you
truly will spend the best part of
your life. Fill it with memories and
items for daily use that give you
pleasure today, as well as for the
future, not to mention to create
classic traditions which will be
enjoyed by the generations.
Enjoy the beauty of life, ev

each

When you spend time play
ing on the beach, what happens
to the top of your head is likely
the last thing on your mind. To
help prevent sunburn on your
scalp, consider packing a hat of
some sort, a bandana or a hair
scarf.
If dried-out hair due to ex
cessive exposure to sun, chlo
rine or saltwater is a concern of
yours, fret not! When you re
turn home from your beach day,
try a deep-conditioning treat
ment or masque.
Footwear: wear sandals
or flip-flops but be sure you
have neatly groomed toes. Our
nail technician Genella Vegas
can certainly get your feet into
Beach shape. She is available

IT4 L22 ARD'S TONE
by E.K. Hewson 1I


Last week my son Harry be
gan his three week spring break
from his year around school
schedule. As we were walking
along the sandy riverfront near
our house aboard MCAS Cherry
Point, he asked me what I used to
do during spring break. I had to
think. First off, I don't really re
member having an official spring
break until middle school and
growing up in New Orleans it was
always tied into Mardi Gras. Then
I told him of my favorite spring
break ever.
My mother, Jane Waters
Cooper, decided to take all her
girls away from New Orleans and
; ..... 1 ; .. ; I,nd
11. 1 1,h ,,, I .. ,, t r. I- o r
being one of the most beautiful
places in the world, it was still
rather undeveloped and immedi


ately felt like home I remember
staying in the only high rise at
the time watching the sun set out
the back sliding glass door. I had
visited this natural treasure be-
fore, but only from the eyes of a
weekender. This time I would be
there for one whole week.
The days were filled with
endless digging in the sugar
white sand, the making of
sandcastles, chasing ghost
crabs and imitating sand pipers.
Sunscreen was something only
red heads and kids who freck
led easily wore back in the 70s,
so my skin turned ever so pink
and though it was hot to the
touch the night air kept me cool.
I went fishing at dusk with my
older sister's husband and the
thought of sharks never entered
our minds. W rode our bikes to


get ice cream and bought rafts
from a convenience store. I spent
one whole day climbing around
an old fort and wondering what
this place looked like in the 1800s.
Our nights were filled with grill-
ing on the BBQ and going out to
eat at the one family style restau
rant.
Harry knew right away that I
was talking about Pensacola
Beach. His connection made me
feel good because the Beach has
changed since I was a little girl
tourist and a young woman resi
dent. Yet, somewhere through all
the new and improved develop
ment, the unbridled spirit of the
Island remains. It must be those
glorious sun rises and sun sets,
the emerald green waters and that
sugar white sand.
Until next time...

Sit. Sip. Stay.

Authors of 1998 Incorporation Study Explain Process To Leaseholders


I have had fun the last two
weeks going to the dump. Now
you know it's a strange sensa
tion when you go to the dump,
and they recognize you.
My husband, Ralph, com-
mented, "How do they know
you? You haven't been there for
awhile."
My reply, "I'm the woman
with the braids."
Now my last trip, I did see
another woman who drove up
and was two slots down from
me. She was nicely dressed. I
am covered in leaves and muck
from the trash I am dumping
with sweat running down my
face. She is perfectly coifed.
And my jaw dropped when I
saw what she was throwing
away. Golf clubs, clothes, boots,
things that people could use.
Her truck load of stuff should
have gone to a charity. It was
not dumpster stuff!
Then to add insult to injury,
her execution of throwing out
the stuff was poor form. She
threw it out one item at a time
with a most genteel manner. No


rhythm to her method.
I have established certain
protocol for the dump.
Law #1 -Dump trash -not
good recyclable stuff.
Law #2 Don't dress up to
go to the dump, Why? Because
it's the DUMP!
Law #3 Don't gingerly pick
up your items one by one unless
they have nails sticking out of
them. Then disregard law #3. Get
your stuff dumped and move on
so the next person can get in
there,
Law #4 Make sure your
items are segregated. She did
drop off the TV in the right sec
tion?
Law #5 Wear good protec-
tive gloves which helps with law
#3.
Law #6 Offer to assist your
fellow dumper if he or she has
some huge items, and the indi
vidual is alone. I always offer to
help, which surprises some men.
Law #7 Be courteous and
friendly. Who knows you might
get a new set of golf clubs to take
home with you!


Going To The Dump Is Not For Amateurs


Two of the authors of the
Pensacola Beach Incorporation
Plan of 1998 spoke to the Resi
dents and Leaseholders Associa
tion at their March 13 meeting,
and explained the roadblocks
which stand in the way of incor-
poration.
Although there have been
several incorporation proposals
over the years, this one was rec
ognized by the Department of
Community Affairs in Tallahassee
as a very comprehensive docu-
ment, according to Kent Marple.
He explained the steps necessary
before incorporation could ever
take place. First, abill calling for
the abolition of the SRIA would
have to pass the state legislature.
Then there would have to be a
special referendum and waiver of
population requirement. Before
any of this can take place, how
ever, the planwould need a unani
mous vote of approval of the six
members of the Northwest Florida
legislative delegation and major-
ity vote of approval from the
Escambia County Commission.
Joe Barron, who also served
on the 1998 Incorporation Com
mittee, told the group how great
the level of commitment and en-
thusiasm has to be by everyone
involved in working on the prod-
uct.
"If you want to take this on,
be prepared," he said. "The work
is not easy. You must be ready to
poll the residents, speak to
homeowners associations, and
convince and involve commercial
leaseholders. You need a strong
attorney. There has to be money
for the studies and expenses."
"We are all serfs out here,"
Kent Marple added. "We have an
appointed government with only
one elected member. With incor-
poration we would have a city
government with local control.
You would have some local say
so.
After the speeches, Tona de
Mers, PBRLA president, com-
mented that if Commissioner
Whitehead continued his at-
tempts to have the SRIA abol
ished, then this is something we
would have to work on."

Q: How often should I
"defrag" my computer's hard
disk?
A: The schedule for
defragmenting a disk will depend
on how many files you add to (or
.. . . )1 ,,,, .,,,.. If
i:,,,,: ,, ,,, ,,,,c:. F the
way to find out if your computer
could benefit from that process
would be to run the "Defragment"
program about once a month and
choose the option to "analyze"
the disk. The program will let
you know if it needs to be done.
To find the program, click on the
Start button and bring up the list
of programs installed in your comn
puter. Click on "Accessories,
then "System Tools", then "Disk
Defragmenter". Windows 98
doesn't have the "analyze" op-
tion.
So, what does that program
do anyhow? When you are add
ing new files and programs to
your computer they may be scat
tered around in different parts of
the disk. When you delete files,
empty spaces will be left between
the files that remain. Result the


files are "fragmented" on the
disk, The Disk Defragmenter
moves all the files into one area
so that they are organized and all
together, putting all the empty
space at the end of the disk.
Then the computer can retrieve
the files faster when you request
them,
You may not be able to run
the program if your computer's
disk is almost full because the
computer has no place to tempo-
rarily hold all the data while it is
being shuffled around.

Agenda items were brought
up for discussion including the
recent hotel room definition.
"I am cautiously optimistic
about our new SRIAboard," Tona
said. "But, now we are faced with
a change in a County definition
which would, in fact, circumvent
the residential cap."
The proposed new definition
of a hotel room includes unlim
ited square footage and sixteen
weeks per year of owner occu-
pancy.
A discussion on thejoint ef-
fort of the Island Authority and
the County to clean up the Beach
followed.
"I find the idea of being
forced to sift anything bigger
than a bottle cap out of the sand
in my leasehold sufficiently terri-
fying," Tona said.
Johnny Johnson, who was a


candidate for the elected SRIA
position, spoke in favor of the
clean up campaign.
"We must maintain a commu
nity standard and a clean yard
must be part of that. I am certain
it has an environmental impact.
The SRIA needs to do their part
as well," Johnny said.
Tona offered to inquire offi
cially on behalf of the PBRLA
concerning the conflicting word
ing in the citation and verbal in-
struction from Code Enforcement
officers. T Ii. i, ,, ". i ..
"clean ut i ii ... i ...
say to "sift the sand."
The next meeting of the
PBRLAwill be at 6 p.m. April10
at the Pensacola Beach Commu-
nity Church. All residents and
leaseholders are welcome to at-
tend the meeting and to become
members of the Association.
