Wildwood Rocks At First Bands on the Beach Concert


There will be a whole lot of
ockin' and rolln' on Tuesday
lights once again The everpopu-
lar Bands on the Beach concerts
are back and marking the begin-
mig of the summer season onthe
Beach The first free concert from
7 to 9pm at the Gulfside Pavil-
ion at Casino Beach will be on
May 1 and will continue through
September
Wildwood, a highly ac-
claimed band, will open the sea-
son Beach people have lovingly
embraced Wildwood as their own
since they first started playing as
the house band at Kevin's en [a
'laya in the early eighties
Michael Wheeler, the leader,
has an extensive background m
nusic, dating back to the time
,vhen lie was ten-years-old when
he andlLucky Kelson startedtheir


'he lEscambia County Board
of Commissioners was greeted by
about 75 beach residents, busi-
lesses, and developers at their
April 10 meeting The main at-
raction was the expected vote on
he change in hotel definition As
it turned out, the Pensacola Beach
contingent wi I have to wait until
he June BCC meeting to get a
possiblee answer
Board members Gene
Valentino and Mike Whitehead
nade their position clear, favor-
ing the change in hotel/motel
definition to expand owner occu-
)ancy to 16 weeks per year, as
opposed to the current two week
regulation Opponents of the pro-
)osed change contend that it will
open the door to increased condo
construction and will bring a
nyrad of problems in its wake
proponentss of the change state
the need for condo financing of a
hotel
Julian MacQueen, owner of
he Innisfree Corporation, which
owns a string of hotels, wants to
buildhotels on Pensacola Beach,
)ut insists they must be condo
financed
"I want to build hotels on
ensacola Beach, but I have to
ave the financing option,"
MacQueen said
Robert Rinke, Levin Rinke
(esort Realty, opposes the
change
"If you change the defini-
tion, we stand to make money,"
e said "But, I stood up m the


first band, The Thunderbird Five
Great name Great future
Since then. Michael has been
a member of a number of locally
successful Florida bands Purple
Heritage, The Last Straw, I at Cat,
Wildwood and The Instant
Daddios Michael joined Wild-
wood in 1976 when the band was
still called The Last Straw
After those early years,
Michael's career criss-crossed
from music to attending art
schools, and back to music Af-
ter art school, lie was the director
for an advertising agency ie re-
turned to Pensacola in 19S9 to
open a studio in Gulf Breeze, the
same week the Bay Bridge was
rammed out of whack by a barge
Bad news for his business, so he
moved to Meridian, Mississippi
to work for an electronics com-


Beach Church with Allen Levin
many years ago in front of 700
beachresidents and promised not
to circumvent the residential
dwelling cap, and I didn't "
Twenty-five speakers ad-
dressed the commissioners, who
finally voted in favor of Commis-
sioner Grover Robinson's recom-
mendation that there was a need
for more time to study the issue
'he matter will come up again at
the June meeting of the BCC
The change in definition
was addressed at the full board
meeting of the SRIA on Wednes-
day, April 11 Board members
and other spokespersons voiced
their opinion on the change in
definition
Tom Campanella said the
developers are talking about
developing risk free
"I find that perplexing," he
said "All of a sudden these
projects need to be built without
any risk to the developer They
should assume the risk, not the
comm unity"
Jim (ox, resident, presented
a petition that he had given to the
BCC with 158 signatures from
people opposing the change
When Vernon Prather,
chairman, asked the SRIA
Board if they wanted to go
through every point in his
memo, the board voted unani-
mously in favor of hosting an-
other workshop on April 24 at
11 30 am to discuss the defi-
nition again


pany IIe returned to Pensacola in
2005, picked up his guitar and
went back to Wildwood
The current members of the
band are Wheeler, Island Times
columnist Freddy Esposito, Jeff
Johnson, Dennis Gossman, and
Mitchell Armstrong
Bands on the Beach always
draws music loving crowd who
often bring their coolers and
chairs and have Tuesday night
tailgate parties
Some folks show up for din-


ner on the Beach before the con-
certs and some stay after for
drinks or dinner It's a festive,
now established Beach custom, a
time when everybody is celebrat-
ing and happy
The Tuesday night Bands on
the Beach is sponsored and pre-
sented by the Santa Rosa Island
Authority as a free community
event
"WVe changed the name from
Blues on the Beach to Bands on
the Beach to offer a bigger van-


ety," says Buck Lee, Santa Rosa
island Authority general man-
ager "Blues will still be an es-
sential part, but now we can in-
clude oldies, soul and mucl
more We have booked first-rate
bands all summer, so come to the
Beach and bring your
dancing shoes "
Bands following Wildwvooc
in May will be Midnight Confes-
sions, Tinfeet, Not Quite Fab
Five, and Crosstown


Fireworks, Fractional Ownership


Light Up Island Authority Meeting


An announcement from
Doug McAllister, Fun Coast Pro-
motions, that there would be
Fourth of July fireworks on
Pensacola Beach brought a mo-
ment of relief to the members of
the Santa Rosa Island Authority
Board at their April 11 meeting
The Board's focus has been on the
change in hotel definition, so the
good news was welcome
"Beach businesses have
been stepping up as sponsors,"
McAllister said He noted that he
is carefully following all regula-
tions Buck Lee, general manager,
said the County had allotted $2(1000
toward the fireworks show
"There is a great deal to do,
McAllister said "But I think the
benefit to the Beach that evening
will be worth it I do not care if I
make any money The only
thanks I need are to know there


are children who enjoyed the fire-
works on Pensacola Beach"
Getting back to their hotel
agenda, the Board viewed a
presentation from George
Fletcher, Adache Group, which
accompanied a request for con-
ceptual approval for the frac-
tional ownership hotel pro-
posed for the former Clarion
site The hotel would include
216 rooms of 1250 to 1465
square feet of space Olga
Dancaescu gave a 45 minute
presentation on the proposed
hotel She said the fractional
ownership hotel would allow
owners to occupy their suites in
two week increments three
times a year Considering that
each unit would have six to
eight owners, there would be a
possibility for 48 weeks of
owner occupancy


Joe Endry, one of the devel-
opers of the property said, "I want
to be sure your concerns are ad-
dressed We can fine tune to make
sure this is a legitimate lodging
facility We want to bring a hotel
which has a very high occupancy
and strong benefits to the beach
This would be a gorgeous flag-
ship on Pensacola Beach "
'The Board did not act on the
request for conceptual approval,
but moved the matter on to the
full board meeting in May
Sandy Johnston gave a re-
port from the Visitors Informa-
tion (enter which included the
fact that 3337 visitors went
through the VIC in March
The next meeting of the Au-
thority will be the committees on
Wednesday, April 25, at 5 p m at
the SRIAoffice The meetings are
open to the public

Barefoot on the Beach


By Jane Waters Cooper


Fishing is not my thing. Dur-
ing the twenty-seven years I have
lived on the Beach, I have gone
fishing only once. And, that was
because my friend, Priscilla
Vayda, a writer for the New Or-
leans Times Picayune, was
spending the weekend with me.
She loves fishing anywhere, any-
time, so I signed us up for a day
aboard The Entertainer.
Preparation for the trip was
easy enough... a few sandwiches
and cokes in the cooler, get up
before sunrise, and we were off,
headed to the Marina to get on
board by six a.m.
Priscilla was wearing a white
silk suit that warm morning. I
guess she didn't bring any fish-
ing clothes. Her hair and nails
were perfect. She was really ready
to fish!
As we got on the boat, I no-
ticed a few ardent fishing friends,
Linda Murphy, Icela Rogers, and
Jeff Goudey. The trip to the first
fishing spot was pleasant. We
were all sitting on the deck, chat-
ting and drinking coffee, enjoy-
ing a fresh sea breeze.
When we arrived at the spot,
everything changed. All the an-
glers went into immediate action,
baiting hooks, positioning them-
selves at the rail, dropping the
lines, forgetting small talk, now
fueled by their intensity to catch
a fish.
I went into the air condi-
tioned salon, sat down, and ate a
sandwich. Suddenly, there was a
huge noise, like a football cheer-


ing section had just come aboard.
Actually, someone had just
caught the first fish of the day.
From then on, it was a non-stop
bait the hook, drop the line, reel
'em in.
Then, it was off to spot num-
ber two. I stayed in my cool com-
fortable zone. When we arrived it
was the same drill. By now, the
hampers were filling with fish, and
that was before we arrived at spot
number three. It was there that
Icela caught a huge red snapper,
and was the envy of the crowd.
All this moving about and fish-
ing, had taken hours. The ham-
pers were filled. It was time to eat
and drink a little and head back to
shore.
Everybody was sunburned,
had bait on their clothes, and they
were too tired to chit chat.
Priscilla's white silk suit looked
like she had been lying face down
in a mud pie. You could say ev-
eryone was a mess except me. I
was cool, full of sandwiches, and
didn't have to brag about my
"catch."
I did think about what is good
and bad about fishing. To a fish-
erman, there is no such thing as a
bad fish story, but I had already
made a mental list.
What's good is that fish are
tasty, if you have enough tartar
sauce. They are also good for
you, if you don't count the mer-
cury. Fish fries are unbeatable
fundraisers. Fish fries are great
summer backyard picnics. The
bad part of fishing is that any-


thing that starts at six a.m. can't minute. I held it up and yelled at looked like everybody el

Beach Donations Get T


Mayan Indian Children


Chief George Dodge, who
collects items for Indian chil-
dren, has re-
turned after
making his first
delivery to the
Mayan Indians
in Guatemala.
"I delivered
a large number
of school sup-
plies to the
Mayan chil-
dren," he said.
"I am so grateful
for all of those


who helped."
Chief Dodge reported that
the Island

to speak, and
subsequently

all additional donations will be
welcome.

Morrie Drees was the first to
email three correct answers to the
last trivia question, "What por-
tion of the old Mai Kai Hotel is
still in existence on Pensacola
Beach?"
The trivia master would have
accepted the Real Estate House
or the Sandshaker Lounge, but
drew a blank on Pensacola Beach
Properties. Morrie's answers are
verified by the fact that he was
the Mai Kai manager in 1976.
Thanks for helping us set the
record straight, Morrie.
We thought the Mai Kai


ended just beyond the lobby
which is now the Shaker.
Who will be the next lucky
owner of a special Island Times t-
shirt? It could be you if you are
the first to email the correct an-
swer to the following question,
"There was once a waterslide on
Pensacola Beach. Where was it
located?"
Rules are the same. T-shirt
for the first correct answer sent
to islandtimes@bellsouth.net.
Email your answer with "Trivia"
in the subject line before 5 p.m.
May 2. Good luck.

It's another rainy day (and
cool) as I write this, but I'm not
complaining I love any weather
seen through the windows of our
new house And, it's nice to be
back on my own computer I have
a wonderful view of the Sound
from here (m fact, the top floor
has a view from every window of
the Gulf or the Sound) I told all
my friends that if our money trees
had not been destroyed by Ivan,
I would put in an elevatorjust so
the ones who don't wantto climb
stairs could come and visit me
Because I didn't have internet
available, I missed wishing our
editor, Shelley Johnson, a
Happy Birthday in the last is-
sue So, "Happy Birthday
Shelley", I hope it was fun
Shelley's a little 'sneaky about
her birthdays while I start an-
nouncing mine several weeks
ahead of time You should be
proud of each year you survive,
you've earned them alli
Celebrate I hope I'll still be on
line next year and we'll catch
you then
The first thing I hung-up in
my new house, was the Kitchen
Witch I received from our pub-
lisher, Jane Cooper My Kitchen
Witch is one of my prized pos-
sessions, and will be evacuated
should the need arise again I
love my witch and I think she is
doing a good job since I haven't
had any mishaps, so far I'll
keep you posted
Although I must tell you, I
haven't exactly been doing a lot
of cooking since we moved in It
took a while to install my stove,
given to me from my friend, Judy
L'Oignon The stove is a survi-
vor from Judy's old house on the
beach I called Judy to let her
know when I cooked on it for the
first time and to express my grati-
tude I love the stove, it has his-
tory, managed to elude the wreck-
ing ball along with several hurri-
canes, and has survived to con-
tmue cooking It also provided
Judy and me with a big laugh be-
cause we know of "one" thing
that wasn't destroyed
I hope someone tried that
Shrimp Salad recipe It was delh-
ciousl Of course, I like justabout
anything on a croissant This
week's recipe is another favorite
of mine because it involves puff


pastry Man, you can put just
about anythmg on that, tool
My biggest love (in the
world of food) is bread I know
it's not the best thing to eat all
the time, so I don't But, I'm not
above rewarding myself with a
bread treat After all, these days I
just consider it "another couple
of trips up and down my stairs "
I have a lot of stairs thirty-two
outside, tobe exact I'mjusthop-
ing it will, at least, keep me
healthy There's gotto be a trade-
off, don't you think?
I like to use a good sausage
m today's recipe I bought some
from the little country grocery in
Georgia on our way home from
Easter My mother always bought
it there and it's the best I've ever
tasted My mother would always
have some for us when we came
to visit Okay, everyone, let's
head to the kitchen and cook
something good

Sausage Rolls
1% Ibs bulk ground sausage
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp Snipped green onion,
or chives
1 Tbsp minced basil
2 Tbsp Minced garlic
1 tsp paprika, divided
% tsp salt
% tsp pepper
1 pkg (17 3 oz ) frozen puff
Pastry, thawed

In a bowl, combine the sau-
sage, both onions, basil, garlic,
34 tsp paprika, salt and pepper
Unfold pastry onto a lightly
floured surface Roll each pastry
sheet into an 11 in X 10 1/2 in
rectangles Cut widthwise into
3-1/2 in strips
Spread V2 cup of sausage
mixture down the center of each
strip Fold pastry over and
press edges together to seal
Cut each roll into six pieces
Place seam side down on a rack
in a shallow baking pan
Sprinkle with rem ainng paprika
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25
minutes or until golden brown
Yield 3 dozen
Enjoy, share with a friend,
and don't forget our Motto
"Why limit Happy to an hour?"
And, if you can't do that, then,
remember "It's Happy Hour
Somewhere "
See ya m the kitchen

What's The House Wine?

Just as every restaurant has a rea-
sonably priced, relatively good house
wine to offer diners, so should you in
your own home When deciding on
your house wine, consider a wine that
is sufficiently versatile to go with many
kinds of summerfoods Forthatmat-
ter, it should not be so full-bodied that it
is not suitable for the summer months,
nor so thin that it cannot stand up to the
rigors of winter cold In fact, a good
house wine should not be too crisp,
tannic, oaky, or spicy It should be a
good middle-of-the-road wine Choose
both a red and a white house wine, as
you and your guests may prefer on or
the other

HINT Once you have selected both
your red and white house wines, pur-
chase them by the mixed case

A moderate choice in both red and white
wine is the bestforyour house wine
Beach Wines and Liquors, Inc we
can help you choose the perfect house
wine By having a great red and white
wine available year round in your
home, you will always be prepared

Lights Out For


Turtle Nesting Season


Baby sea turtles can't tell
the difference between moon-
light and a spotlight, and as a
result thousands of the two-
inch hatchlings die as they un-
dertake the treacherous journey
to the Gulf of Mexico from
Pensacola Beach
Sue Smith, Environmental
and Developmental
Services Assistant
for the Santa Rosa
Island Authority
has announced that
a turtle friendly
newsletter will be
mailed to all beach
leaseholders, out-
lining the steps
they can take to help the tiny
hatchlings complete their jour-
ney safely
"The bottom line," Sue
said, "is turn off as many lights
as possible during the nesting
season which runs from May 1
to October "
If eliminating all lighting
from your residence or business
is not possible, there are a num-
ber of alternative measures you
can take to protect the
hatchlings
"I want to congratulate the
Sans Souci Condominium for
becoming turtle friendly after
their renovation from Hurricane
Ivan," Sue said "This condo is
right on the Gulf of Mexico and
is completely compliant "
Last year, 70,000 hatchlmgs
in the State of Florida were dis-
oriented by lights leading to
their death
Every mature Loggerhead


or Green turtle returns to her
hometown, in this case,
Pensacola Beach, to lay her
eggs, according to Ranger
Bridget Tiffany, Gulf IslandsNa-
tional Seashore Bridget is avail-
able to speak to clubs and orga-
mzations on protecting the sea
turtles She can be reached at
934-2855
After the
mamaseaturtle
prepares her
nest, she lays
about one hun-
dred eggs She
covers the nest
with sand and
returns to the
sea It takes about sixty days for
the eggs to hatch
Members of the National
Park Service monitor the nests
every day during the season
After the hatch date, the baby
turtles will emerge and begin
their precarious trip to the water
This happens mostly at night
since they will wat for a cool time
to go to the sea
All SRIA properties are
lighted with turtle friendly lights
and they are hoping that all other
beach residents and businesses
will follow suit
Following are the proce-
dures to help maintain the Log-
gerhead and Green turtle popu-
lation which are now endan-
gered species These basic rules
are from Turtle Time, a turtle
friendly organization
> Shut off or shield lights
that are visible from the beach
Close drapes or blinds after dark


Use 25 watt yellow-bug lights
where exterior lighting is neces-
sary Avoid using flashlights or
fishing lanterns on the beach
Remove beach litter Bal-
loons, plastic bags, foam and
other non-degradable pollutants
cause the deaths of many sea
turtles who mistake them for food
Quietly observe a nesting
turtle from a distance Do not
shine any lights on or around her
- she may abandon her effort to
nest No flash photography Stay
behind the turtle so she cannot
see you Call 916-3010 to report
the nesting turtle
> Do not harass a turtle by
touching her or prodding her to
move Stay out of the way as she
crawls back to the water
> Stack or remove beach
furniture
> Keep pets on a leash, away
from sea turtles and their nests
Leave sea turtle nest iden-
tification markers in place on the
beach
> Leave nest sites undis-
turbed If you find a hatchling
wandering m the daylight, imme-
diately call the Park Service at 934-
2855
A turtle light survey was con-
ducted on the Island on April 2,
and sixteen problem areas were


identified according to Sue Smith
Another light survey will be con-
ducted around June 1 to confirm
that residents and businesses are
doing their part to help the en-
dangered species
Remember these turtles have
been on earth for millions of years,
with little threat to their lives un-
til recently


Making a few simple
changes in your summertime
lighting can save thousands of
turtles For more information on
the cost of turtle friendly lights
as opposed to standard lights,
and other pertinent questions, go
to www turtletime org or call Sue
at the SRIA at 932-2257 or Bndget
at934-2855

Report
David "Roto" Rotenberny
This week we lost another
one of our surfers, David
Rotenberry David, Rote or Roto
aswe called him was a longtime
local and great friend to so very
many of us. We all lose people
every year and as we get older it
seems more and more often, but
losing Roto was somehow dif-
ferent. You see, he was such a
strong character and had this to-
tal go-for-it attitude in all aspects
of his life in and out of the water.
All of us on Pensacola Beach re-
member Dave growing up surfing
the pier and the point.
David's approach to surfing
was like no other Strong. Power-
ful. Fearless. He was a warrior. In
fact he lived his life the same way,
full of excitement, power and
gusto. Anyone who knew him felt
his energy. David enjoyed his life
to the fullest. He became a great
businessman, a great husband,


S&nurf

Freddy
Esposito

and pursued his dream of living
mCalifomia, retunnmg afew times
a year to hang with all his friends
and family. He even flew out some
of his close friends to celebrate
his marriage and had the mother
of all parties will all the Pensacola
boyz. Rote loved his crew
Like most of our brothers and
sisters who pass we will once again
unite and celebrate the life of our
friend There will be a paddle outin
his name with dozens on surf-
boards. It will be a proud day to be a
surfer and a friend of Roto
On one of the last days of his
hfe he told our good friend Rim
Stanley, "Rim, thanks for all the
memcriesbro."
Well, DavidRotenbeny from all
of us thank you. We will always
remember yourbig smile andstoke.
All I can say is this Hold
on to your friends very close,
people. Life is quite short. Re-
member everything!

Consultants Hold Visioning Workshop


It was deja vu for John
Fernsler, one of the owners of
Wallace, Roberts, and Todd
consulting firm, when he re-
turned to Pensacola Beach to
conduct a workshop on April
11 His firm had created the
Comprehensive Land Utiliza-
tion Plan for the Beach in
1988
Fernsler complimented
the SRIA on the way
Pensacola Beach looks now,
at the April 11 workshop
"The blight is gone from
Pensacola Beach," he said
"Now, it is important to look
ahead another twenty years
and find out where you want


Fourth of July Fireworks, af-
ter a two year hurricane induced
delay, are off the back burner, and
will light up the sky over Santa
Rosa Sound The Beach's long-
time tradition has returned
Doug McAllister, owner of
Fun Coast Promotions, who will
produce the display, told the
SRIA in a heartfelt speech that
businesses had saved the fire-
works for this year (See SRIA
story, page 2)
Since the SRIA did not have
the funding to produce the
Fourth of July Fireworks, many
businesses and individuals have
come forward with contributions
to guarantee the show
"Right now, the major spon-
sors are the Grand Marlin Marina
and Escambia County has guar-
anteed $20,000 to the Pensacola
Beach Chamber of Commerce to
support the fireworks Other ma-
Ior sponsors are finalizing com-


to be "
Fernsler told the Board
members that they must de-
velop a true vision and assign
a hierarchy to address the
item s
His recommendations are
O Prepare a vision state-
ment which represents a con-
sensus of values and priori-
ties It answers the question,
"What do we want to be?"
O Develop a strategic ac-
tion plan for the next five to
ten years
O Draft a Land Use Plan

mitments," Doug said
"The Beach Chamber has
been very effective m the drive
to secure the necessary funds to
be able to go on with the fireworks
show," Doug said "Many of the
members are backing the fire-
works financially, and they have
contacted a number of busi-
nesses who have sent dona-
tions "
"What's important is that
kids will once again have the
chance to spend the day on the
Beach and look forward to the
grand finale, the fireworks," Doug
added
The fireworks, which will
originate on a barge in the Sound
at 9 pm July 4, will be visible in
many areas of the Beach How-
ever, the best view will be from
downtown Pensacola Beach
A complete list of sponsors
will be published after the contri-
bution deadline ends

Fernsler then proceeded
to tell the Board, "I recom-
mend that you write a vision
statement It is very useful to
put together 15 to 20 individu-
als representing a broad cross
section of stakeholders and
charge them with writing the
vision statement Then the
vision statement truly reflects
the vision of the people "
Sylvia Vargas of WRT,
made a presentation of the
work they had done in several
areas, especially Key
Biscayne, a community which
began the visioning process
by creating a statement from
the stakeholders
Vernon Prather, SRIA
Board Chairman, asked the
staff to request that WRT
make a proposal to follow up
with the idea of creating a vi-
sion statement by using a Vi-
sioning Statement Committee

General Kennedy Commands Respect At Beach Poker Tables


The best bluffers on the
Beach gather weekly at three
beach bars for Texas Hold 'Em 4
Fun games. Organizer and top
dealer Rick Uzdevenes describes
the action for the last two weeks,
"As the temps heat up on the
Beach, so does the poker action.
We have been seeing a few new
faces at the top of the chip stack."
On the second floor of the
historic Islander Lounge players
battled on April 7, but "Cool
Hand" Fran Cox went all the way
with Trey "J.O. III" Weeks as run-
ner up. Janie Uzdevenes made a
strong run, but ended up in third
place. Trace Lewis was awarded
the coveted "t-shirt" because a
judging error was made on his fi-


nal hand.
Just seven days later Jeff
Lockwood took the win on a
stormy night at The Islander.
Larry Gers made a strong show-
ing as runner up.
Poker played at Paradise Bar
and Grill sets tables against a
backdrop of Santa Rosa Sound.
Right around sunset, games are
played on Monday and Wednes-
day nights. Trace Lewis made Is-
land history by winning three
weeks in a row at Paradise. J.O.
Weeks and Michelle Bourgeois
were runners-up to him on April
9. Atlanta Tourist, John Choate,
returned for more punishment
from the locals, made it to the fi-
nal table and was the runner up

In this world of instant mes-
saging and digital everything, we
need a place to recharge our bat-
teries. Here are a few timeless tips
on how to create the place where
we rest.
Dressing the outside of
your bed is not the same as dress-
ing the inside of your bed!
The selection of Hungarian
goose down pillows, mattress
pads and duvets is very personal
and should be planned for the
persons enjoying the bed.
The linens must be selected
to be cool, warm, soft, or crisp,
based on yourbody's tactile feel-
ings, and yes, fabrics come in all
sorts of colors, textures, even
weights and colors, but white is
never "out"-white is an example
of purity, and is a classic choice
for the inside of your bed.
Prepare at least 3 changes
of linen, six are preferable, so your
linen can be changed often and
given time to 'rest'!
Make sure all your choices
are machine washable, so your
bed will remain clean and fresh
after all, the investmentyoumake
can last a lifetime if you take care
of it, laundering carefully, and
changing your linen.
Dressing the outside of
your bed can be in any color or
print, and you can choose heavy


orlightweightfabrics to meetyour
interior preferences, but you
shouldn't choose the inside of
your bed that way-use your
sense of touch when dressing for
bed!
Contrary to popular belief,
1000 thread count sheets are nor-
mally heavier than 400 or 500
thread count sheets, so touch
and feel them before you buy.
Make sure you seek good
advice:
An experienced bedding
consultant can guide you through
the maze of cotton, linen, or silk
choices forthe inside of yourbed.
An experienced interior de-
signer can assist you with the
outer dressing of your bed and
home.
I have been manufacturing
Hungarian goose down pillows
and duvets for 12 years. I have
been importing antique textiles,
antique sheets and shams, and
new Egyptian cotton sheets and
shams for more than 30 years.
Making classic choices for your
bed and for your home are an in-
vestment in your lifetime.
Please, for your best health
and enjoyment, take the time to
select the best you can buy, and
do it now.
Enjoy the beauty of
life...today!

By Danah Gibson


In honor of my Nanny, who
turned 100 years old onApril22, I
have decided to share some in-
formation that might be helpful if
you have an elderly person who
you love and are caring for. My
grandmother is still living in the
same house she has lived in since
the 1940's, thanks to her children
who opted to care for her at home,
and this is some feat, consider-
ing that they range in age from 82
to 69! It's a hard job. They are
great with her. My hat's off to all
of them and I love them for it. I am
very lucky to have a family who
cares for each other immensely.
Consider these thoughts:
1). Don't force your loved
one into cutting off her hair, so it
will be easier to care for. Easier


for you, not them. They are al-
ready losing a certain amount of
dignity and independence, if you
pull a change on them now, that
just takes more of their "self"
away. Would you want this done
to you? Always a question to
ponder.
2). Dry shampoo. They sell
this at most stores. If you can't
find it, try a beauty supply house.
These generally don't work as
well as regular shampoo, but it's
better than nothing. Having dirty
hairjust makes you feel yucky.
3). Velcro rollers. You can
dampen the hair with a squirt
bottle, then roll hair up on small
rollers, using small sections. No
pins or clips necessary. Let it dry
and brush it out with a natural


Prayers Offered

To Calm The

Waters

Our Lady of the Assumption
Catholic Mission on Pensacola
Beach invites all to join them on
May 20 at 9:45 a.m. inprayingfor
a safe hurricane season this year.
The entire parish will pray at all
Masses for grace, courage and
safety for the community before
the hurricane season begins.
Last year at Our Lady of the
Assumption Mission, Pensacola
Beach, the parish held a special
prayer service, and invited the
community to bring an item from
home to be blessed. This year, the
parish will to repeat the new tra-
dition with prayers during Mass,
and ask the entire community to
join with them at Our Lady, or at
their own houses of worship.
"Afterwe realizedthe toll the
busy hurricane seasons had taken
on our parishioners, we soon re-
alized that only prayer would be
able to calm the fears we were
seeing daily. So a prayer service,
aptly named "Calming the Waters'
was instituted last year," said
Susie Spencer, parishadministrator
St. Ann Catholic Church,
Gulf Breeze, and Our Lady of the
Assumption Mission, Pensacola
Beach, together are a parish of
over 2,700 persons serving the
community in body, mind and
spirit. Information, bulletins and
newsletters are available on the
web at StAnnGulfBreeze.Org.





each

bristle brush. You have a 'do!
4) Get one of those little fa-
cial hair razors and take care of
facial hair. She might not be able
to see it to get to herself, but I'll
guarantee you she can feel it!
They have these at most drug
stores. If your loved one is a
gentleman, shave his face for him,
sometimes old hands canbe quite
shaky.
5). Make sure all fingernails
and toenails are clipped short.
6). Lotion, Lotion, Lotion.
Doesn't matter what you use, just
put it on their hands and feet for
them.
7). Visit when you can.
Thanks to my Uncle Gabby,
Aunt Kitty, and Dad for taking
such good care of my Nanny!

14 L ZAPPD'5 TON 41 L
by E.K Hewson


My mother raised me to be-
lieve that I could do anything I
put mymind to. For the mostpart,
she has been absolutely correct.
If I really wanted to accomplish
something be it in my personal
life or professional career or ath-
letically or academically, all I had
to do was set the bar as high as
possible and then let nothing get
in way until I metmygoal. Soyou
can imagine how upset I was
when I reality sunk in that I could
not spit and run at the same time.
It all started when my mara-
thon training partners and clos-
est friends delicately breached
the subject. Okay, they were
pretty direct. After all, they can
spit with grace, ease and dignity.
I believe the conversation went
something like this.
"Hold up, I have to get my
tissues out of my pocket," I said
as my nose was doing more run-
ning than my feet due to the high
pollen count which was creating
yellowish-green dust storms
when the wind blew.
"Friend," said Susan in a
tone of voice that always indi-
cates that you are about to get a
Marine Corps Lieutenant Colonel


reservist's lecture, "you need to
learn how to spit."
A bit offended by her remark,
I countered with, "Spit?"
"Yeah," said my world-trav-
eled, highly sophisticated, mas-
ter degree, drop dead runway
model gorgeous neighbor Leslie
who is training for her sixth aa-
thon. "It's easy. In through the
nose, out through the mouth."
Then she had to demonstrate.
I promised I would learn to
spit and leave the tissues at home.
They decided no time like the
present run we were on to teach
me. I gave my nose one last blow
and hoped that my sinuses would
remain free and clear for the next
five miles. I probably wasn't even
500 yards and I could feel the
trickle. Since I couldn't getmy tis-
sues, I just wiped my nose on my
sleeve.
"Suck it in, spit it out,"
chanted Leslie.
"What are you going to do
when summer comes and you are
in a sleeveless shirt?" asked Su-
san. "Just spit."
Unfortunately, sooner than
later, my nose just wouldn't stop
running. My first attempt to spit,


I expelled my chewing gum with
the former contents of my nasal
passages. The next time I hit my
own foot. My friends remained
positive and encouraged my ef-
forts. Then I did the unimaginable.
As we were running into a
somewhat stiff headwind, pollen
was misting out of the trees mak-
ing our eyes itch and let's just say
it wasn't champagne that was
flowing. Prepared. I aimed. I fired,
but did not take into account the
headwind. Therefore, it landed
right between the soulful brown
eyes of our four-legged faithful
follower, Sugar.
As I stopped to get out a
clean tissue to wipe off her 10-
month-old square Boxer snout,
Susan, her owner laughingly said,
"Spit happens." Yes it does, just
not for me.
Untilnexttime...

ATale of Two Mitts
This is a tale of two mittens,
not kittens, mittens, two kitchen
mittens As Saturday's storm was
passing through, I was awakened
by the sound of a large boom I
thought one of our windows was
broken, but my search at midnight
proved me wrong, so I wentback
to bed and to sleep
On Sunday morning I woke
up and looked out into the back-
yard and saw downed power
lines There were huge branches
from our magnolia tree on top of
the lines I was trapped The 220
line that fed our garage was hot
and blocking the driveway And
there was no way I could move
the wire without the two hot con-
ductors arcing I called my hus-
band Ralph and relayed the in-
formation
His first thought was put on
your rubber boots Those would
be my concrete pour boots Then
he and I sat and thought about
how to isolate the conductors
And then it hit me My eyes fo-


Bytes G Bits

Q How can I protect my
computer data from damage mthe
event of a "windstorm"?
A If you evacuate, take it
with youl Nobody likes to think
about hurricanes, but the sea-
son will be here in just a few
months Thousands of houses
were uninhabitable after Ivan
and Dennis Inside those
houses were many computers,
left behind by their owners
Some of the data was recovered,
but most was lost Now is the
time to take some steps to save
your data files --- not when the
weather starts looking bad
Documents, music, photos, fi-
nancial data, address books,
appointment calendars, and
emallmessages are examples of
the information that may be
stored on your computers
Knowing how much data you
have will help you determine


caused on two big over stuffed
oven mitts hanging on hooks in
the kitchen, looking insulating
good
"Ralph, how about two oven
mitts?" I asked
His response, "That will
work, but call me so I know you
didn't get electrocuted"
"Right on I said
So I went out m my rubber
boots and leather gloves, and put
the kitchen mitts on the two hot
conductors to isolate them from
each other I also taped them with
electrical tape
My next job was moving
three massive branches off the
wire I had to be careful so as not
to nick the insulation And I had
to use one branch as a lever to
move the other two
Once that was accomplished
I couldmove my wire I carefully
pulled it across the driveway, and
into the grass along the fence I
then tie wrapped and secured the
wire to the electrical pole Sojust
remember, if this ever happens to
you, a conductor in the mitt is
worth an arc m the bush
[To my readers Don't try
this at home. This column is in-
tended for your entertainment

fessional ]
