Dad's Love For His Kids and His Community Pays Off


Dan Green might very well
have become a Beach hippie
when he moved into a cottage at
the Surf and Sand after gradua-
tion from college and taking atrip
to Hawaii in 1979 But, the Island
Times Father of the Year tookthe
exact opposite path, and now
looks back on twenty years inthe
role he played as a community
activist.
Perhaps, his major contribu-
tion came when Escambia
County closed the Pensacola
Beach Elementary School in
1999. No way, declared Dan and
half dozen other parents. They
fought for the establishment of a
charter school, overcoming stum-
blmg blocks everywhere, includ-
ing a contingent of their peers
Dans group prevailed and Dan
became the school's savior, a
move which will impact
Pensacola Beach forever.
"I feel strongly, looking
back, that we made the right de-
cision," he said "Our record of


success supports the tremendous
effort put forth by the parents,
teachers, staff and board mem-
bers I'd put our governing board
up against any corporate board in
this part of the country "
That's not all Dan has done
for Pensacola Beach He has
chaired numerous committees
and served in many capacities
making the Beach a better place
to live He includes work on the
Land Use Plan, water quality in
Sabine Bay, helped to develop a
fair commercial lease policy, and
most recently worked changing
the severe limitation of what can
be placed under raised houses on
Pensacola Beach
"Life on the sandbar has
been a hobby all unto itself Hur-
ricane Ivan presented one of the
greatest challenges of my life,"
Dan said
Dan is a member of the Con-
servation Association, a desig-
nated MAI member, member of
the Appraisal Institute, member


of the National Association of
Realtors, and the Homebuilders
Association He is also a licensed
yacht broker
So whatdoes all this impres-
sive background have to do with
his current title of Father of the
Year? His two extremely talented
children may not realize what
their dad has done for the Beach,
but they know what he does for
them He sings Jimmy Buffet
songs, offkey, while drivmg them
to school, butpays serious atten-
tion to all of their activities
The activities of Savannah,
11, and Daniel, 7, exceed the nor-
mal Savannah is already on her
way to a theatrical career with a
singing talent she did not inherit
from her dad
"I don't think my wife Gall
would claim any special vocal or
theatrical talent, either," Dan said
"So that makes us all the more
appreciative of Savannah's abil-
ity "
A year or so ago, Savannah


was one of the top ten finalists in
the United States for the role of
Annie in the Broadway produc-
tion She was not chosen but re-
turned home to star in the local
production of Annie. She has
opened a recent Pelican's baseball
game with the National Anthem
and she performed at the Relay
for Life in Gulf Breeze Her line
of credits is already paving the
way for a show business career
Savannah never complains about
going to school
But Daniel thinks it's yucky
and would avoid going, if he
could All this, m spite of the fact,
he is an honor student.
"He can smooze with the
best of them," his dad said "He
could have a career as a salesman
or in marketing, buthe thinks he's
good enough to make the big
leagues in baseball."
Daniel loves fishing and
boating, legacies which have
come to him through the genera-
tions


BCC Pounces on SRIA Attorneys, Board Members

Whitehead Critical ofAuthority's Decisions


Who is the Alpha dog? The
Board of County Commissioners
or the Santa Rosa Island Author-
ity? The change in a hotel defini-
tion ordinance, extending the stay
for owner occupancy to sixteen
weeks has reached a boiling point
as members of the SRIA continue
to study the matter from their lo-
cal standpoint of protecting the
mix on the island
On one hand, developers are
seeking condo financing forhotels
they want to build on Pensacola
Beach. The County had al-
ready successfully passed


tomey, referring to cases disprov-
ing the SRIA attorney's reply She
said it was her opinion that the
BCC has the final say as to how to
define a hotel or a condotel
The BCC, at their Committee
of the Whole meeting on May 22,
declared that they are, deed, the
Alpha dog. Here's how Commis-
sioner Mike Whitehead views the
members ofthe SRIA
"They are getting bad advice
from their attorneys I believe that
we need to take a firm position.


County has And I think it is im-
portant that we take a position
and let them know what that is
And it is incumbent on each
Commissioner to let his repre-
sentative know what that is and
that they musttow the line and if
they don't then find somebody
who will It is a matter of find-
ing people who reflect your
will "
Commissioner Valentino
wants a change in Article 13 of
the Land Development Code


I refuse to delegate the decisions on land use to a group

ited square foot area for a be They don't look at itfrom a County perspective. They

to be overcome, the two


week per year owner occupancy
rule When many members ofthe
Beach community got wind of the
impending change in the ordi-
nance, they expressed their disap-
proval. Inthe meantime, the SRIA
was continuing its study of the
definition of a hotel room. And
their attorneys told them that the
State Legislature granted them the
ability to determ me what was built
on the property they leased.
The State's Attorney General
confirmed this Not so, says, Janet
Lander, County attorney, as she
fired off a letter to the State's At-


'This is Escambia County's role in
Land Development This is the
SRIA role in Land Development'
And pass a resolution to that ef-
fect It is important to know your
boundaries. Irefuse to delegate the
decisions on land use to a group
of part-time people no matter how
well-intentioned they may be.
They don't look at it from a County
perspective. They look at it from
that little, very myopic perspective
they have out there And that is all
fine and good- that is not how we
should be viewing the most impor-
tant resource that Escambia


which gives the SRIA the ability
to add more restrictive language
in leases His motion to delete
this language from the Code
passed unanimously and Lander
will send itto the Planning Board
for approval, since it is an
amendment to the Development
Code
Additionally, Valentino
would like staffto create a posi-
tion paper with clear bullet points
explaininmmg the scope of where the
BCC authority begins and ends
and where the SRIA authority be-
gins and ends.


Kevin White, Board chair-
man, agreed saying itwould give
them a basis to work from "If
they do not tow the line, then you
can take action," White com-
mented
So, where does the matter
stand?
The BCC has declared that
the SRIA is merely a group of
misguided puppets, who must
jump when they pull the strings
If they don't comply, the County
says they will be replaced by oth-
ers who will The BCC voted
unanimously to bring a change in
the time of owner occupancy
from sixteen to twelve weeks to
their Board meeting on June 21
Whatever way they vote on
owner occupancy, the problems
will not yet be solved. Overall,
who will determine what is best
for the Island, the BCC or the
SRIA? Where will it end?


Dan's passions are fishing
and boating, but he has tried not
to force his hobbies on his son
He needn't have worried Daniel
just took to both hobbies natu-
rally.
When asked abouthis favor-
ite thing, Daniel answers, "Fish-
ing with my dad "
Dan spent his childhood
fishing and hunting with his fa-
ther, John Manning Green of
Gulf Breeze
"I think my dad's guidance
has everything to do with the fa-
ther I am today," Dan said. "We
have been constant fishing and
hunting buddies since I was a
small child "
Perhaps, Dan inherited his
thoughtfulness and wisdom as a
father. Or, maybe it just came
naturally to him
"Aphilosophy on fatherhood
is difficult," he said, "especially
since I'm not done yet. It's better
to set the stage if you can, then
attempt to react to unplanned
consequences The more you
keep open lines of communica-
tion with the kids, the better "
Dan also said, "Teaching
them about diplomacy andteam-
work is important You need to
be careful about their friendships
as they approach adolescence "
Diplomacy aside, Savannah
thinks her dad is funny and told
abouther dad's grand preparation
for cooking on a brand new grill
"We had lots of stuff ready
even vegetables Dad was about
to put some marmated chicken on
the grill He turned the bowl over
and ended up spilling all the
chicken He made us all laugh,"
she said
Just in case you are wonder-
ing, Dan is a property appraiser,
owns his own business in Gulf
Breeze. No, he's not a politician
or a freedom fighter No, he's not
a child psychiatrist. He just
sounds like one
And, accordmg to Savannah,
"He IS the best dadl"
Savannah and Daniel are so
lucky.

Barefoot on the Beach


I'm not sure when The Is-
lander Newspaper decided to se
lect a Father of the Year. It prob
ably happened because we had
chosen a Mother of the Year and
decided to give the dads equal
time. We always seemed to find
really far out fathers. Never any
run of the mill, standard guys.
Were there or are there any stan
dard dads on Pensacola Beach?
Our dads all had one trait in com
mon. Well, mainly they were un-
common, one of a kind fellows.
Stanley, now deceased, was
one of the early Fathers of the
Year. When his daughter, Lindsey,
wasborninAprilof 1983, Stanley
held his tiny child in one hand
above his head. That was the
front page photo. Stanley shared
his passion for fishing with his
children, Lindsey and her little
brother, Cullen. They grew up
with fishing poles in hand. It was
not surprising that Lindsey was
the captain of the boat which
brought the 1000 pound shark
aboard recently, After all, she had
spent most of her life preparing
to catch the "big one." She and
Cullen grew up on the docks in
Stanley's shadow,
The first and last time I ever
attended a man's F--," -h.-.-'r .
was the one Jack i,, ..... i .
friends and the SOBs threw for
him. The party was at Dirty Joe's
East. Refreshments were beer and
chips. The party game was pool.
But, the monumental moment of
the afternoon was Jack opening
his packages of little, bitty cloth
ing and toys for his soon-to-be


born infant. Wow, whatta day.
Jack's buddies never let him live
that one down. A couple of years
later, he was named Father of the
' .. h 1.. 1.1 1.. .1 ... 1.1 II1
in his arms for our front page
photo,
The Beach dad who took his
role most seriously was Mike
Meade. Mike owned Surf and Sail
Boardsailing in the Sandspur Re
public, and when his daughter,
another Ally, was born, he took
her to work with him every day. I
remember well a Chamber of Com
merce meeting at The Dunes Ho

battery powered crib gently
rocked the child until it was shut
off,
Mike had to go to the bath
room during the meeting and
asked me to keep and eye on the
swinging Ally. When he returned
shortly thereafter, he asked, "Did
she miss me?"
I replied, "I don't know. She
didn't say."
Mike was a handsome dad,
actively playing the mom and pop
role, so his wife Susan was free
to pursue her career as an artist.
One year we chose pioneer
Beach resident, JR Turner as our
Father of the Year, He had the
courage to raise two sons on
Pensacola Beach, beginning in
the fifties when the Beach was
truly a primitive place. BZR and
Herb grew up on the Beach be
cause their father's feet were firmly
and irretrievably buried in the
sand.

Even after all the trauma of
Hurricane Ivan and the burning
of Herbie T's in downtown
Pensacola Beach, the Turners
are stalwarts of the Beach.
Their home is almost ready for
occupancy and Herb is close to
completing his building. (We
hear it is going to be a cafe.)
When Dr. Tom Campanella,
current SRIA Board member,
graced The Islander's front page
with his daughter and son,
Lauren and Greg, he had al-
ready decided he would spend
quality time with his children.
He did not take any appoint
ments on Wednesday after
noon. That's the day of the
week which belonged to him and
his kids, Although he spent


By Jane Waters Cooper


many other days with them, and
attended all their games and ac
tivities, Tom still dedicated
Wednesday to his children,
Jack Greenley was the last
Father of the Year in The Islander
in 1998. He had a family reunion
and celebrated fifty years of mar
riage at a party in his home. Jack's
sons and daughters were all there
telling stories on their father,
which he took in good humor,
Jack passed away a while after
that party.
There were many others,
l i ,,, I ,,,_ I h ,, I... II

deserving of the honor, but
there's not enough space here to
tell their stories,
So, now the Island Times is

year's Father of the Year follow-

Paulus last June.
So, that's the story on
some of the more illustrious and
outrageous Beach dads.
As 1 look back, what makes
a kid feel special is to have a
Beach dad. I don't know where
most of the children are now, but
they must all be free spirits, with
carefree childhood memories.
Wherever they are from, Seattle

are -doctors, lawyers, mer

surely recall with special rever
ence the paradise they once
called home. Thanks. Dad.

Ring, Ring, Ring Go The Trolleys

Traditional Beach Transportation Returns For Summer


The trolleys will roll once
again on Pensacola Beach on
weekends beginning Friday, June
8. Friday's schedule will be from 6
p.m. to 11:45 p.m.; Saturday from
noon to twenty-five minutes past
midnight and Sunday, noon until
5:45p.m.
"General Manager Buck Lee
and I worked hard on the trolley


schedule this year," Wade Lane,
Santa Rosa Island Authority Pub-
lic and Recreational Facilities
manager said. "Our available
funding has been cut in half due
to the hurricanes."
The routes will include the
loop through the core area, down
Via de Luna to Avenida 10, and
along Ft. Pickens Road to the Ft.


Pickens gate.
The trolleys will operate un
til September 3. There is no
charge to ride.


The answer to the last trivia
question was a pushover. It
couldn't have been anyone else
who was the Superintendent in
charge of public recreation (and
just about everything else) on the
Beach except the affable and al
ways smiling Charlie Petersee.
Burma Davis who lived and
worked on the Beach for many
years emailed the first correct an
swer from the Mainland. (No,
Larry Keever, it was not Monroe
Slaughter, although he, too was
affable and always smiling. He
was in charge of trash and gar


bage.) Thanks for all your an
swers, but the t-shirt goes to
Burmm.
Here's another easy one. The
property where the Grand Marlin
Marina will soon be built housed
many restaurants over the years.
Email the name of at least two of
them before anyone else and you
will get an Island Times t-shirt.
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.
June 13. Good luck.


SRIA Dedicates Harry's Park


The Santa Rosa Island Au
thority will host a dedication of
the Harry G Gowens Memorial
Park at 4 p.m. on Saturday, June
9. The park is the children's play
ground located on Via de Luna.
Vemon Prather, Santa Rosa Island
Authority board chairman, will

oring Harry, founder of the
Pensacola Beach Elementary
School. Refreshments will be pro
vided by the Beach Chamber of
Commerce.
Later in the summer during


August, the Chamber will host a
Beach Appreciation Party in the
park, much like the parties Harry
put together every year. This party
will offer famous barbecue, side
dishes by the SOBs, and music.
"We want to have a fun
party in honor of Mr. Harry," Jeff
Elbert, president of the Beach
Chamber said. "Something Harry
would have enjoyed himself."
Both the dedication and the
Beach Appreciation Party will be
open to the public at no cost. They
will not be fundraisers.

School's out for Summer!
Whatever your age, I know you
can stillremember "that" feeling.
The endless possibilities and
promises of a wonderful summer
in Paradise! Even if you weren't
here during your school years,
you were still excited about sum-
mer. I've been out of school since
the Dark Ages and I still get that
same feeling. Beach School
teacher Jennifer Neal (and her
helpers) gave a spectacular
Graduating Party for her Kinder-
nrton "rhll It included a picto-
, ... review" DVD set to
music. By the time it was over,
there wasn't a dry eye in the room
My daughter, Melanie, was a
complete puddle on the floor!
Ms. Neal joked that by the time
Jesiah graduated from high
school, Mel would be attending
on a stretcher! Possibly very true.
It's also hurricane season, so
cease allwork on your house (less
to have to re-do) and begin your
preparations (packing anything
you want to keep) instead. Even
though, according to Queen
Shugah Paulette, all anti-hurri
cane rituals and ceremonies have
been performed by her Royal
Highness and her Ladies-in-Wait-
ing, you should still be prepared.
Welcome to all our summer
visitors and readers from afar! We
enjoy sharing Paradise with you,
especially those who leave itjust
the way they found it. There are
some in this world who always
believe someone else is respon-
sible for cleaning behind them.
There is no 'someone else' -
there's only you! Please leave
only your footprints.
Okay Dads, this edition of
our fine newspaper is dedicated
to all of you and to having what it
takes to be a great Dad. Yes, I
saw some of you at the Gradua
tion Party and the pride and love
for your child was evident in
each. I also watched the faces of
your children and saw that pride
and love reflected there. That's
what it's all about. I'm saddened
for the Dads that are not always
able to be a constant presence in
their child's life; some by choice
and some by necessity. Ifit is by
choice, then I hope you can look
into the eyes of another Dad and
his child and feel, not only your
loss, but that of your child. It's


never too late to show your love
and, hopefully, have it returned.
To those of you forced, by ne
cessity, to be away, rest assured
you are never forgotten and love
lives in the heart of its recipient.
Then, on the other hand, there are
those Dads who didn't have to
be dads, but lost their hearts to
children whether by design or de
feat. Children can be relentless
in more ways than one. They can
also be the greatest source of joy
and love that you will ever know.
Since having grandchildren,
I can more easily understand my
own parents'love for my children.
My Dad once told me that he
could never say 'no' to one of his
grandchildren. This from a man
who had no problem telling his
own children "NO!"
Being a parent is the hard
estjob on earth! So, this recipe is
for all of you Dads that make it
look so easy Happy Fathers
Day! This one's for you, Let's
cook....
Barbequed Country Ribs

6 to 8 pork country ribs
1 bottle (cheapest brand) BBQ
Sauce
2 to 3 Cup brown sugar

Place ribs in large pot and
cover with water. Place pot over
medium high heat and bring to a
slow boil. Continue boiling 15
minutes. (Boiling reduces cook
ing time allowing ribs to tender-
ize and retain moisture.) Remove
ribs and place on pan for baking
or grilling.
In a small bowl, combine
brown sugar with BBQ sauce.
Using a pastry or BBQ brush (or
spoon), cover ribs with sauce.
If baking, place in PRE-
HEATED 350 -i,_rr ,-,"n nd.
bakeforl5m in. i ..... ....i r.. I
ribs over, cover with sauce and
continue baking for another 15
20 minutes, until ribs are fork ten
der.
If grilling, cover ribs with
sauce and cook on medium heat
30 minutes, until fork tender, turn-
ing once and covering with more
sauce.
These are tender and juicy
and perfect with "Kathi's Potato
Salad".
Enjoy and I'll see you in the
kitchen.....

RED WINES FOR RED MEAT

When searching for a wnethatgoeswell
withmeat. you must look for a wine with
sufficient texture and strutureto standup
tothedensityand meatyflavoroa grilled
or broiled piece of meat. Cabernet
Sauvignon immediately comes to mind,
especially from those countrieswhere
grilled meat is often on the menu, such
asthe United States andAustralia. Other
red wines that go well with meat are

ful Zinfandels,The common denominator
in all these wines is that they all have
serious structure, which comesfrom their
tannin content. This isthe compoundthat
giveswine the character it needstostand

GROVER'SMEETING
Commissioner Robinson has
set his Pensacola Beach Town
Hall Meeting for June 28 at 6:30
at the SRIA office.


The Parking Garage concept
will be kept on the Development
and Leasing Committee agenda,
following a brief discussion at the
May 23 committee meetings.
"The garage will continue to
be on the Board's mind as the vi
sioning process builds and
moves forward. A budget must be
established," said Vernon Prather,
Board chairman.
Tommy Chavis, a Beach resi
dent and contractor, spoke from
the audience suggesting that the
garage could be designed as a
drive through, which would elimi-
nate the need to change the road
system.
Among other items to come
before the Development and Leas
ing committee, the request for a
sublease from Fred Simmons to
Angelika Simmons was ap-
proved. The property is the
former Geronimo's and will now
be the Paradise Outpost, a retail
bazaar.
Also, the Beach Marina re
ceived approval to assign its
lease to Beach Marina, LLC.
Mary Bolman, Manager of
Administration, Leasing and Pro-
motional events, said she is wait-
ing for a call back from the Haas
Center at UWF to see if they have
the ability to meet the SRIA'svi
sioning needs. This item will be
moved to the Full Board for dis-
cussion.
The Architectural and Envi-
ronmental Committee approved
two new attractions at Tiki Island,
a hot dog stand and a water bas
ketball game. Their request to
build a water balloon facility was


moved to the Full Board for ap-
proval.
The request by the
Sandshaker Lounge for a year's
lease extension to keep their out
door kitchen running was modi
fied to give them the same oppor
tunity that the Board gave the
Paradise Grill, a six month exten-
sion.
The Board also moved the
conceptual approval of the frac
tional hotel to be built on the
former Clarion site, to the Full
Board. The vote was two to one
with Kelly Robertson voting
against the request.

Subcommittee Seeks Best Plan for the Island


An issue that appeared to be
a single change in the County's
hotel ordinance has morphed into
a multi-headed dragon lighting
complex fires that must somehow
be extinguished,
The Santa Rosa Island Au
thority subcommittee is in the
process of determining what con
stitutes a hotel room as opposed
to a dwelling unit.
The committee at their third
meeting on May 22 continued to
pursue Chairman Vernon Prather's
and staff recommendations. Ba-
sically, the document contains
three types of hotel accommnoda-
tions: 1) standard hotel rooms, 2)
luxury hotel suites, and 3) ex
tended stay facilities. All board
members participated in the dis
cussion which also covered
square foot areas and amenities
in addition to weeks of owner
occupancy.
The hotel definition later was
extended to the agenda at the
SRIA committee meeting on May
23.
Three Board members
reached a consensus that in
luxury hotel rooms a twelve week
stay was acceptable. The pro-
posed change in the County or
finance allows for a twelve week


occupancy by owners. Three
members felt an eight week re-
striction on owners occupancy in
extended stay units was appro-
priate. On the issue of kitchens in
extended stay units Fred Gant,
John Peacock and Prather agreed
that kitchens would be accept-
able. Kelly Robertson and Dr.
Tom Campanella felt kitchens
should be limited in 90 percent of
the rooms.
No final document has been
drafted to date. But, the list of
agencies and individuals in the
process continues to mount, in
cluding the Escambia County
Board of Commissioners, staff,
and their attorney, Janet Lander;
the SRIA staff and their attorney
Matt Dannheisser; the State's
Attorney General, the Internal
Revenue Service, the Department
of Community Affairs, the Land
Development Code, the resident
tial dwelling cap, Pensacola Beach
Residents and Leaseholders As-
sociation, Beach developers and
investors. Other players may yet
come forward, but certain regular
tions are already in place. There
is no square foot area limitation
on hotel rooms in the County or-
dinance, so the question of owner
occupancy for 12 weeks of the

year will bevoted on by the BCC
at their June 21 meeting.
This vote may or may not
end the controversial ordinance

for a countywide ordinance

best fit their desire to maintain a
mix of use on the island.
"Ultimate compliance as to
whether this is a hotel or a dwell-
ing unit is out of ourworry I think
we want a mixed use on the is-
land and we could work legally to
get a variety of hotel products,"
Prather said.
Attorney Matt Dannheisser,
pointed out that the Authority


could approve one fractional
share hotel, but would not be
compelled to approve another.
"The Board must act reason-
ably and consider the effect of
each development on the island
as a whole," he said.
The results of the
subcommittee's work will be
brought before the SRIA full
board on Wednesday, June 13.

The new executive Board of
the Pensacola Beach Elementary
School will step up to guide
Board meetings, beginning June
25. Dan Green, who has served
on the Board seven years, con-
ducted his final meeting on May 21.
Susan McLeod, fourth grade
teacher, in her report, told the
Board that the fourth and fifth
grades at the Beach School had
honored the fourth grade from
Hallmark Elementary School in
Pensacola. The Hallmark students
had made dramatic improvements
in their FCAT scores this year, so
they were invited to a party at the
Beach School. The Beach School
bus picked the children up in
town and brought them to the
Beach. The forty-seven young-
sters, along with the Beach chil-
dren, received sand buckets,
courtesy of Sidelines, and they
all went "shelling" on the shores
of the Gulf of Mexico.
After refreshments of lemon-
ade and cake, the Hallmark group


returned to their school on the
Mainland.
The Board voted unani-
mously to approve the new en

Amendment requirement and set
up a prioritized admission policy
based on residency and other fac
tors.
Jeff Castleberry, principal,
read a letter of resignation from
Jackie Henderson, longtime art
teacher at the beach School. She
said she wanted to get more in-
volved in her son's school, Gulf
Breeze Middle. She also said she
no longer wanted to attend sum
mer classes designed to keep her
certification current.
Members of the new execu-
tive board are Todd McCurdy,
president; JeffGill, vice-president;
Reed Dunne, secretary; and
Patrick Lanza, treasurer.
The June meeting will be at
the school at 6 p.m. The meetings
are open to the public.

spot's Surf Report


When I was a kid on
Pensacola Beach there were a
number of signs that lined the
entire beach. These signs stated
a simple but necessary message
"$500 fine for littering. Please
leave nothing but your foot-
prints." What has happened to
this philosophy?
Everyday we have tourists
from all over trash this beautiful
Beach with beer cans, wine
bottles and old McDonald's bags.
For instance, if we would have en
forced the Litter Law on Memo-
rial Day, think of the money we
could have radejust at the Pier
What I don't understand is
why we don't enforce this law. If
people knew that they could get
.11111. I I ,I .I I 1 II .. you
would think the word would get
out.
As a local, I pick up bottles
everyday just behind my house.
It's insane how people just don't
care. They see the beauty of our


-- By Fredy E' p a.lo
beach. They come and swim in
the Gulf, and then...BAM they
leave all this trash!
I tell you what in just one
weekend we could set a prece
dent that could keep our beach
cleaner in the future. This just
seems so simple to me. Laws are
on the books to protect this
Beach, so we need to enforce
them. Have you ever heard of
anyone getting $500 fine for lit
tering, ever?
This money could help the
Beach or maybe the school here,
or a charity...something.
Sure we have garbage cans
everywhere, overstuffed and
stinky...this is not working
people!
How 'bout making some of
us locals as "On-Watch Trash
Patrol." We could hand out $500
tickets. The beach stays clean!
The point is, "Leave Noth-
ing But Footprints" or please take
out your wallet!

Welcome to Readin' the Wa
ter. May 19 my wife Janie and I
took "The 4FUN" (our 1991 20'
Renken) out in the Santa Rosa
Sound for a little Speck action and
we found them on the first cast
on the west side of Ranger point.
We had not even dropped anchor
when I hooked up on a nice Speck
on a RedHeaded Got-Cha. The
Specks were everywhere along
the grass beds. We tried other
arts, but, the Got-Cha's were the
Hot ones.
I was lucky enough to be
there when Curtis Gilbert, father
of Connor Gilbert, stopped by the
Pier to pick up a check for his son's
business "Connor Jigs". Connor
is an 11 year old who started tyin'
flys at the age of 8, and has turned
it into avery successful business.
With the help of Curtis andTonya
"MomandPop" and brother Clay,
Connor has made a BIG name 4
himself in the fishing' circles around
the Gulf Coast and beyond by
selling' his "Connor Jigs almost
everywhere that fishing' supplies
are sold.
I caught my first Pomp of the
season on a Pink Conner Jig. The
Gulf Pier is hosting a Pomp Tour
ney with Conner Jigs. Call 4 info,
850 934-7200.
There are still a few Ling
around that thing "THE PIER."
On May 22 Mike Moore hit the
deck with a beautiful 55 pound
Ling that had him smilin'. Bo Cox
pulled a 30 pound ling up in 45
seconds. He hooked it up at the
Pier and pulled it right up. "Wow!"
Bo said. "He's fought hard tails
longer."


There's a lot of action on the
Old Bridge and Reds are takin'
every thing in the water when
they come by. Spanish are bein'
caught daily on all kinds of bait
rigs.

Why is it that normally calm,
cool and collected fathers in-
I .,i, i. .. .. Carl Spackler (the
I 11 i ...,. character from
"Caddyshack") whenever a ro
dent like animal strays into their
yards?
For the past week, my son,
Harry, and I have been quite sim-
ply dealing with the daily mess
left behind by an unknown
source. Nothing fancy on our
,, I 1.1 .. ... ,,i Ii , 11
ing recycle bins or sweeping the
mulch that had "drifted" out of
the garden. We just assumed the
wind was really gusting every
night and cleaning up our yard
became part of our morning rou
tine while waiting for the school
bus.
Then one evening there
wasn't a breath of air and yet the
next morning our trash can lids
were strewn out into the drive
way with remnants of a week's
worth of garbage here and there.
We knew then it wasn't the wind.
We had a varmint in our midst
and Harry's dad instantaneously
turned into Carl. It started out with
just simple actions like putting on
a floppy hat and muttering the
classic line, "here gopher, go
pher," which was funny unto it-
self since there were no signs of
burrowing in our yard. Then he
started making homemade traps.
None of which worked. All of
which left him frustrated and the
unknown offender well fed.
Eventually, the rotund rascal
showed himself and not at dusk
as we had thought he would. It
was three in the afternoon when
Rocky Raccoon ambled out of our
backyard woods, over to our
trash cans, lifted the lids, grabbed
himself a bagel and sauntered
back to his foliaged home with-
out a care in the world. Harry and
I captured it all on video tape while
laughing hysterically. Thirty min-

maybe he was looking for cream
cheese or somejam. Then he came
back again, and again, and again,
and again. His cuteness was
quickly wearing off and I was get
ting tired of playing put-the-lids
back-on-the-trash-cans game.
Out of frustration, I called
Harry's dad who dashed home
fromwork with a look of little boy
excitement on Christmas morning
on his face. It was his time to
shine. He was going to rid the

Hewson driveway of Rocky. He
donned his floppy hat and armed
himself with our son's Red Rider
BB Gun. As he pumped and fired
towards Rocky, Harry and I
watched from the safety of our
kitchen window. Rocky just sat
there and licked his paws. "Did
you hit him?" I asked. "No, I
don't want to hurt him, Ijust want
to scare him," was the reply. My
husband, always the humanitar

severity of the standoff intensi-
fied. Rocky decided to stand his
ground. Well actually he chose
to sit on the steps to our back
door My husband, however, was
locked and loaded with 100 feet
of garden hose set to jet spray
that somehow switched over to
mist as he approached Rocky.
"No, I don't want to hurt him, I
just want to scare him," was the
reply. Yeah, yeah, I got it for
ever the humanitarian. These
Rocky ridding antics went on for
hours.
In the end I called the MPs

As my husband hung up his
floppy hat and sat down for a
very late and very cold dinner,

on the run. Almost twice you
scared him back into the woods
and you didn't even hurt him.
You're my hero."
Until next time, happy
Father's Day to all the dads who
have encountered a Rocky like
creature and become a child's
hero for doing the right thing.

with pins, then use the front to
wrap around and pin underneath
the back. SPRAY! Also, you can
do a faux french twist by comb
ing all the hair into a low ponytail
in your hand, then twist the hair
several times (upward) and fold it
into a twist. Pin and secure, then,
either leave the ends out to curl
or let them stick out randomly,or
tuck them under for a more class
sic look.
Good Luck!


Stylist Gwen Gibson and
Nail Tech Genella Vegas are
bridal beauty experts. Both
helped Susan Haselton Barr on
her wedding day, May 27.


Can you all believe that it's
June already? Unbelievable!
What comes to mind when we
hear "June" ?The June Bride.
Why June became "the" month
to get married, I have no idea. If
you live in the South, who wants
to wear a 30 pound dress with all
the trimmings, and get married,
sweating in the 90 degree heat is
beyond me, but people opt for
summer weddings.
We do alot of bridal parties
at Danah's Hair studio, locals and
visitors alike, most of whom are
having their ceremonies on the
Beach, outside. My sister, Gwen
is the absolute BEST at styling
brides. She does the most fabu-
lous up-dos! Here are some things
to consider if you are going to be
a Summer Bride.
1). Heat and Humidity.
Whether it's June, July or Au
gust, it is gonna be hot and hu-
mid. Loose curls, half up-half
down, straight down your back
either way, if you are outside,
curls will flop, and straight will
stick to your neck. If you are in
side with A/C, that's a whole dif
ferent ball game.
2). A nice updo will stay in
place, cut down on the stress of
how your hair will look all night
and what better occasion to
"dress" your hair than a wedding!
If you are able to get your hair
professionally done, it always
helps to cut down on time if you
come in with clean dry hair. That
saves at least 45 minutes right
there. Wear a button down shirt
that does not have to go over
your head.
3). If you opt to do it your
self, here are a couple of easy
things to '. Pirt th. ht!ir fr.m

2007.
"We may have to raise the

of producing the parade," Jeff
said.

on this information, for the Santa

Agenda Fill Chamber's Plate


Island Times


The Pensacola Beach
Chamber of Commerce plate is
full. Sponsoring Beach events,
large and small, and solving
problems, also large and small,
have become a way of life for
the Beach business organize
tion.
Their efforts to get a ferry
to Ft. Pickens from a Pensacola
Beach dock is now a reality with
the Katelyn up and running.
"I think Chamber members
should pick a day to ride the
ferry to Ft. Pickens," Jeff Elbert,
president said at the Chamber
meeting Tuesday, May 29. "I
think we need to celebrate. If it
were not for our influence this
ferry service may indeed never
have docked on Pensacola
Beach."
Nan Harper, events chair
person, told the business rep
resentatives that Kaboom, the
Fourth ofJuly fireworks display,
is definitely going forward.
"I remain eternally grateful
for the support of the Chamber
and Beach businesses in mak
ing this a reality," Nan said.
Nan further pointed out
that there will be a concert by
the Tams, an oldies band, which
will be Thursday, July 5. Also,
there will be a free Friday Night
Flick on Friday, July 6.
"These events, which are
free and open to the public, are
planned to expand the Fourth
of July holiday so visitors will
have reasons to remain on the
Beach during the entire week,"
she said. "Doug McAllister of
Fun Coast Promotions is coor
dinating these events."
A t-shirt design honoring
Lt. Cdr. Kevin Davis, who died
in a recent Blue Angel Air Show
crash, was presented by Jeff.
Proceeds from the sale of the
shirts will all go to charity at the
request of the Davis family.
Traffic tie ups which may
be traced to the operation of
the toll booth arms were dis
cussed. The Chamber will sug
gest that they leave the arms up
and not bring them down each
time a motorist goes through the
toll plaza during peak times.
Chrissy Cook, president of
the Pensacola Beach Woman's
Club, thanked the Chamber for
their support of the most suc
cessful Game day ever. The club
netted $4700 at their once year
fundraiser.
"We have designated Mor


gan Park, Beach safety, Our
Lady of Assumption Catholic
Mission's Hunt Hall, the Elk's
Lodge, Pensacola Beach Com
munity Church and Pensacola
Beach Elementary School as re
cipients of the money," she said.
"We certainly could not
have raised this money without
your help and donations,
Chrissy added.
The Chamber's next busi
ness meeting is at 8:30 a.m.
Tuesday, June 26 at the Com-
fort Inn. Business After Hours
is at 5:30 p.m. on the same day
with the location to be an
nounced.

Chamber may be secured by

tive director at the Visitor's In
formation Center at 932-1500.
