ADVENTURE ON THE HIGH SEAS Captain Terry Kreitzberg and his daughter, First Mate Cassie, have completed one third of their around
the world odyssey on board the Sora, a 55 foot Tayana Ketch. The pair left the Pensacola Beach Yacht Club on June 3, 2006, and are currently
in Tahiti after a year of sailing. More on this fascinating story, Page 2.







Sailing With Sora Around The World in 1095 Days


Almost everybody dreams of
sailing around the world at one
time or another. Very few ever
fulfill this fanciful dream, but
Pensacola Beach's Terry
Kreitzberg is the exception. Right
now, he and his daughter, Cassie,
are living the dream. They left the
Pensacola Beach Yacht Club on
June 3, 2006, and have completed
a third of their three year odys-
sey at sea.
"Terry had been planning
this trip for almost tenyears, and
although he realized his boat, the
Big Sky, wasn'tup to such an ar-
duous journey, he still kept on
planning," according to his wife
Karen.
Then, Ivan came along and
helped Terry by demolishing the
Big Sky. He had to find another,
more seaworthy boat if he was to
make the trip around the world.
Terry searched the internet and
came across the 55 foot sailing
yacht, Sora, aTayanaKetch. Per-
fect! Terry began to put his plan
in action. Notyetretired from his
job as a pilot for FedEx, he flew
back and forth to meet his com-
mitments from June to this Janu-
ary, leaving Cassie in charge of
the Sora. Now, fully retired, Cap-
tain Terry is enjoying his life as a
skipper.
Reading Cassie's day by day
accounts of the trip in her jour-
nal will makeyou feel thatyou're
rightthere on the boat with them.


At least, they will makeyou wish
you were.
Maybe, you're wondering if
they are bored with nothing but
the deep blue sea around them.
Wrong. Cassie is always upbeat,
no matter what, and she and her
dad have great senses of humor,
probably the one real necessity
when packing for the trip. Don't
leave home withoutyour sense of
humor.
At one crucial moment their
engine, known affectionately as
Mr. Perkins, began to surge. That
required a filter change normally,
but was not the cause of the
trouble this time. Terry bet Cassie
five dollars that he had found the
solution. She won the bet, but he
hasn'tyet paid up. Check is in the
mail, he says.
Cassie's not worried. She's
holding the Sora for collateral.
Most of the first leg of the
trip seems to have gone smoothly,
with unforgettable stops at exotic
ports.
When they anchored off
Cristobal Island, there were a
dozen boats, some of the crews
were friends of the Kreitbergs'.
Cassie reported in herj oural that
it was a beautiful place, filled
with barking sea lions, but she was
able to run and explore at will.
Cassie has been discovering
hidden talents on this cruise.
"Cooking on a boat has become
one of my creative talents," she


writes. "I spend much of my time
in the galley, and have really re-
trained the captain's taste buds. I
have discovered how really good
a dish of cantaloupe with mayo
and hot sauce can be."
At the end of May, the Sora
was sailing from Tuamotus en
route to Tahiti. Although, a great
deal of Cassie's journal related
mostly to the good times, there
was an entry on the day's chores
on the boat on May 30.
"Today was a 'git 'er done
day.' Itwas cleanyour room day,
laundry day, fix the spinnaker
halyard day, clean the water line
day and scrub the bottom day."
But the description of the
grunge duty was simply erased by
the story about a trip the next day
to the Pearl farm. Cassie re-
marked that the adventure was
one to put in a unique experience
bank. They took a skiff to a house
sitting on the middle of a coral
reef where they learned all the
wonders of raising pearls.
During the firstyear of their
three year sail, Cassie's journal
reflects herjoy at discovering all
kinds of unusual events, like it
gets quite cold on the Equator
when the sun goes down, she
loved cooking the fish her dad
catches frequently, when a moon
is fuller than full, and constant
exciting Island excursions, that
she only sleeps well when the
boat is rocking, and the fun of

frequent trips imports sofar away
from her home on Pensacola
Beach.
So, where is Karen
Kreitzberg, wife and mom? She
has made frequent trips to visit
the boat, and stays as long as she
can stand it. A week ago she was
preparing to fly to Tahiti to board
the Sora and stay with her
husband's cruise for six months,
or until the siren song of the land
lubber lures her back to
Pensacola Beach. She will get to
Tahiti just before the monsoon
season so the Sora will sail to-
ward New Zealand or Australia
soon after her arrival. Cassie is
28, a graduate of Pensacola
Beach Elementary School and


received her Bachelor's degree in
International Finance from the
University of West Florida in
2006.
The Kreitzbergs' other
daughter, Mandy is also a Beach
School graduate and currently is
living and working in New York
City. Mandy, a star soccer player
at Gulf Breeze High School, still
plays pick up soccer games and
belongs to the Brooklyn Kickball
League.

Hotel Definition Policy Gets Rnal Approval Document Goes How To County Commission


The Board of the Santa Rosa
Island Authority played to a
packed house at their June 13
meeting, and after four hours of
debate and discussion, they ap-
proved by a vote of five to one
their policy for a hotel definition.
The documentwill beforwarded
tothe County Board of Commis-
sioners who sparked the question
when they decided to vote on a
16 week owner occupancy ordi-
nance to accompany their already
approved unlimited square foot
area for hotel rooms.
With the concept of condo
financing in mind, the SRIA cov-
ered all the bases minutely to
make sure that hotels constructed
on the Beach would, indeed, be
geared toward transient lodging.
Although theAuthority's sub
committee had spent hours pre-
paring the policy, the full board
still made minor adjustments be-
fore approval was reached. John
Peacock cast the lone vote
against, saying all the items had


already been covered by the
County Commission and the
Land Development Code.
Basically, the document was
divided into sections with the first
being a description of regular
hotel requirements such as front
desk, centralized reservations,
limit on number of bedrooms and
bathrooms, and prohibition of the
use as a dwelling unit, among oth-
ers.
The policy outlined specific
requirements for hotels with
larger rooms, notably some re-
strictions as follows:
oRoom Size Limits: Ten per-
cent would have no size restric-
tions. Ninety percent of the rooms
can be no larger than 850 square
feet
o There shall be no cooking
facilities except kitchenette
equipment i.e. microwave, refrig-
erator, coffee maker and sink.
n Owners of hotel rooms in
this category can occupy themfor
up to eight weeks per year, and


must abide by specific times and
all other restrictions.
The Board granted concep-
tual approval for the proposal for
a 216 unit hotel on the former
Clarion property by a vote of four
to two with Kelly Robertson and
Fred Gant opposed. It was
pointed out that conceptual ap-
proval does not guarantee any
future approval.
Van Nevel Helicopters was
given approval to operate on the
vacant property owned by the
Palace. Tom Campanella dis-
sented on this item saying,
"Safety is paramount. This is a
high traffic area both on land and
by water."
Members ofthe neighboring
Elk's Lodge voiced concerns
about sand and debris going air-
borne. George Van Nevel said
that could be controlled by a fenc-
ing system. Final approval of this
item is contingent upon the Pal-
ace making past due payments.
The helicopter operation must


meet safety standards and be ap-
proved by Escambia County.
Deb Friedman, president of
the Mardi Gras Association of
Krewes on Pensacola Beach, ap-
peared before the Board to re-
quest help with the financing of
the Krewe of Wrecks parade in
the amount of $25,000. The ac-
tual costfor lastyear's parade was
$31,000. The AOK requests will
go to committee.
And the meeting went on and
on as they voted to approve a
Water Balloon game at Tiki Is-
land Golf and Games, granted
approval of the Sandshaker's out-
door kitchen to operate for one
year longer, and approved
Domino's pizza's request to op-
erate from the former Baars Re-
alty building.
Dave Hemphill, Baskerville
Donovan engineer, said all
projects were nearing completion
and Cowley Park will be opera-
tional by the Fourth of July.
Buck Lee, in his Manager's


Report, noted that a pipe would
be installed at the west end of
Little Sabine Bay to improve
water quality. The entrance to
Little Sabine Bay will be
dredged, and grasses will be
planted on Bird Island to help
clean the water. All this will be
accomplished through grants.
The SRIA committee meet-
ings will be on Wednesday, June
27 at the Authority Office. The
meetings begin at 5 p.m. and are
open to the public.

Goodbye To Gibby by Danab Gibson
by Danah Gibson
It was in the fall of 1993. I of life. Just ask around, he was He was an intelligent man who -
was having my usual after work many different things to many chose to live his life his way, on
cocktail at Bobby D's, Iglanced differentpeople- Lovinghusband his terms. The biggest lesson ev
across the bar and noticed a new to his wife Barbara Dad to Bowie eryone learned from Gibbm was ..-

was a big guy, well over six feet
tall with a clean shaven, shiny
bald head and a jet-black fu-
manchu mustache. I thought
"Wow, he looks interesting," and
boy, was I right! Interesting to say
the least. It was none other than
Gibby.
We struck up a conversation
and became fast friends. Back
then he was crashing in the back
of Rick Czeck's T.V repair shop,
and hailed from Australia you
know! Over the years, there were
many tall tales from Gibby, which
were always amusing and a big
part of his charm ( he definitely
was a master of the art of blar-
ney).
A softspoken, kind and sen-
sitive soul, misunderstood by
many and beloved to all his
friends, who came from all walks


& Buttercup; Beach Bum of the
Year; Mayoral candidate: CEO of
his company, Fishpie Records;
fundraiser and supporter of the
Beach school, and many other
organizations and people, all of
whom are not known to me. He
liked to help people out when he
could, and was sometimes gener-
ous to a fault!
He loved his wife Barb, his
family, and all pets. Who else
would, on a regular basis, bring
home a Philly steak sandwich with
double meat from Peg Leg's for
his dog, Petey? He held close to
his heart Horatio Hornblower, the
Blues and Heavy Metal music,
Bluebell ice cream, playing his
harmonica, Live music, making his
"daily rounds" on the Beach, beef
pot pies and Budweiser beer in
the can.
He had a serious side also.

its cover. It happened to him all
the time, but he accepted folks for
who they are on the inside, not
what you look like on the outside.
The most important life les
son that I personally learned from
him is that there are many differ-
ent kinds of love. No two are the
same. And that's a hard one to
grasp. Thanks, Gibby. You
touched more people's lives than
you will ever know. I, along with
everyone who loved you, will
miss you everyday My hope for
you now is that you are on a big,
fat, happy cloud, enjoying a Bud,
jamming with Hendrix, and hav-
ing some fabulous conversation
with Frank and Albert! (Zappa &
Einstein, respectively).
See you on the other side-

Island Times




June 20 2007


It is definitely Summer on the
Island! I've just had my first
guests for the season. My sister,
Brenda Williams and our family
friend, Mable "Precious" Purvis,
both of Albany, Georgia were
here. It was Mable's first visit to
our area and she was definitely
impressed with our Island and my
new house. Mable has been
around our family for so long, she
has become one of us and we have
changed her name to "Precious."
That's because she cooks such
wonderful food and has fed our
family through every loss in our
lives. You've all heard of "funeral
food." Precious is such a good
cook, that we've actually consid
ered "knocking off" some of the
least favorite family members ust
so she will bring us food!
A bird ate the first grape to
mato from our garden. That's
okay since Jesiah said, "It was
Great Grannie and she was hun
gry." My mother did love toma-
toes and gardens, so we may not
get to eat as much as we thought.
If you missed Monette
Hodges' Dance Recital, put it on
your calendar for next year. It was
an absolutely spectacular event!
You know Deb Friedman always
dances and she is very, very
good. But the best surprise this
year was Courtney Winstead. My
God, where did those legs come
from? Courtney says she always
feels like a big giraffe when danc
ing, but I have to tell you she
looks more like a gazelle to me.
Deb and Courtney were both
fabulous, along with the rest of
the cast. This is such great en
tertainment for us, but a whole
year of work for Miss Monette.
Her daughter, Lacey, also dances
and looks so much like her mom,
it's incredible. Lacey performed a
solo with perfection, wearing the
same dress in which her Mother
won top awards.
Don't forget to "reserve"
your seats for upcoming major
events- 4th of July Fireworks and
Blue Angels Shows! I love the
fireworks and we are very grate
ful to have themback this year. I
still miss Mr. Harry and his first
day of Summer party, and I swear,
I still smell the barbecue cooking
at the end of my street!
Okay, back to Precious and
Brenda. We had a wonderful din


ner on Saturday night and de-
cided to walk on the beach after-
wards. The thing is, Brenda also
insists that I drive her car when
she's here (to use her gas) and
since she has a cute little PT
Cruiser, it is certainly fun. The
prnhlom hooqn when we went to
ii ... r. I i.., I 1. W e parkedat
the Church and tucked our purses
under the car seat to deter
thieves. Well, that was all fine
until about 45 minutes after my
sister left my house to return
home. That is when I reached for
my purse only to discover that it
was not in my house. Three
guesses where it was. Oh yeah,
still under the seat in Brenda's car.
So, frantically I called her (be-
cause cell phone with telephone
numbers, checkbook, ID's are all
in my purse). Luckily, they had
not gotten very far past
Crestview, so she turned around
as Bill and I headed to I110. We
met them in Crestview and re-
trieved my traveling purse. I told
Precious it would be hard to leave
the beach and, by taking my
purse, she had signified the de
sire to return.
This week's recipe is court
tesy of Precious and is guaran-
teed to make you "hug your
Mama," This one's for you, Pre-
cious. Let's cook...

Precious' Pineapple
Filling

1 box butter yellow cake mix
1 (No 2) can crushed pine
apple
1 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
2 Tbsp Lemon juice
4 Tbsp. Cornstarch

Cook cake mix according to
directions on package. Let cool.
In a mediumsaucepan, cook pine
apple & sugar for 35 minutes.
Remove from heat and remove a
small amount of hot mixture from
pan. Blend eggyolks, lemonjuice,
salt and cornstarch in small
amount of mixture then return to
remaining mix. Return saucepan
to heat and, stirring constantly,
cook 2 minutes or until mixture
thickens. Ice cake immediately,
serve and enjoy!
Happy Summer everyone!

Whenever Pandora de
Balthazar takes on a project, she
always adds a touch of class.
Sometimes, a whole lot of class.
She was the hostess for the first
ever birthday party to honor chil-
dren who were born in June who
are now in foster care. These chil
dren, often referred to as "Karen's
Kids" because Karen Cook
Cowen founded the Lunch Bunch
group which sponsors them dur-
ing the holidays.
Pandora directed the birthday
event, the first time it has included
both Santa Rosa and Escambia
County children.


She partnered with the
Pensacola Opera and volunteers
from the Beach Church. There
were numerous activities for the
kids and their foster families, Sing-
ers and a pianist performed ex-
cerpts from children's operas and
musical theatre. The kids joined
in the dances and songs. Face
painters were on hand and cos
tumers provided the kids with the
opportunity to dress up in fun
clothes.
Each of the birthday kids re-
ceived an individual cake baked
by Barbara McGlynn and Marilyn
McDonald as well as gifts.


Pensacola Opera performers entertained birthday partiers.
Delighting the children with face painting, singing and costuming
are Opera members (L to R): UWF theatre major Christopher Lotito,
Timothy Kennedy, Opera Director of Education and Community
Outreach, and UWF Theatre Arts major Lynsey Price.

A friend of mine sent me the
following fantastic story in an
email and I thought it was worth
sharing:
A 92-year-old, petite, well
poised and proud man, who is
fully dressed each morning by
eight o'clock, with his hair fash
ionably coifed and shaved per
fectly, even though he is legally
blind, moved to a nursing home
today. His wife of 70 years re
cently passed away, making the
move necessary. After many
hours of waiting patiently in the
lobby of the nursing home, he
smiled sweetly when told his room
was ready. As he maneuvered his
walker to the elevator, I provided
a visual description of his tiny
room, including the eyelet sheets
that had been hung on his win
dow.
"I love it," he stated with the
enthusiasm of an eight-year-old
having just been presented with
a new puppy.
"Mr. Jones, you haven't
seen the room; just wait."
"That doesn't have any-
thing to do with it," he replied.
Happiness is something you de
cide on ahead of time. Whether I


New Shelters

on the Way
Twenty-four new picnic shel
ters will replace the outdated
structures at the Ft. Pickens Gate
area after the Santa Rosa Island
Authority accepted a bid at a spe
cial Board meeting on May 29.
Southeastern Construction Com-
pany was the successful bidder
at $474,971.46 from a group often
bids. They will also build new
dune walkovers.
"These will look like the shel-
ters at Quietwater Beach," Dave
Hemphill, Baskerville Donovan
engineer said. "We have the DEP
permits in hand and are ready to
get the work started."
The project will be paid for
by FEMA funding.

like my room or not doesn't de
pend on how the furniture is ar-
ranged. It's how I arrange my
mind. I already decided to love it.
It's a decision I make every morn-
ing when I wake up. I have a
choice; I can spend the day in
bed recounting the difficulty I
have with the parts of my body
that no longer work, or get out of
bed and be thankful for the ones
that do. "Each day is a gift, and
as long as my eyes open, I'll fo-
cus on the new day and all the
happy memories I've stored away,
just for this time in my life."
He said, "Old age is like a
bank account. You withdraw from
what you've put in." So, my ad
vice to you would be to deposit a
lot of happiness in the bank ac
count of memories!
Thank you for your part in
filling my memory bank. Iam still
depositing.

Steve and Jessica Summers weighed in their Specs at Shoreline

fish weighed in at a modest one pound and Steve's was a two
pounder. It's a great way to fish, according to the couple.

What are kitchen blessings?
Kitchen blessings are an-
tique, embroidered fabrics meant
to be hung in a kitchen to bless
the inhabitants. For centuries,
embroidery, needlepoint, needle
laces, and other handmade art
forms were a woman's outlet for
artistic creativity with a practical
punctuation: these finished
works graced her home in a fash-
ion suited to the family's status.
Young women were raised learn-
ing to darn, sew, embroider,
needlepoint, crochet, and create
the very wardrobe for her trous-
seau and her future family's home.
It was a part of her dowry, and
was expected of every young
woman, regardless of her place in
the world.
In each case, a woman al-
ways reserved a quiet portion of
her talent to focus on making her
own special room, the kitchen, a
place of grace, comfort, and
beauty Why not? The kitchen
was the heartbeat of her home and
where she spent most of her own
time!
Why decorate with kitchen
blessings?
Kitchen blessings hold a spe
cial place in the collector's eye
because they represent the heart
of the home, the maker, and her
viewpoint of and for her life. The
kitchen is the place where one
feels most protected and welcome,
and where one can be reminded
of the beauty of family life.
Economically, kitchen bless
ings are an excellent investment.
Compared to samplers, they cost
less than 10% of the market price
of samplers today, and yet face a
growth value three times that of
the recognized and dated sam-
plers seen at auction. Moreover,
they carry a simpler version of a
woman's view from the kitchen,
her expectations from life and for
her family and friends. The impact
of the soft blues, bright reds or
simple golds provides onlookers
with a smile.
I hope that your kitchen and
your home is blessed.

A Walk In The Park Will Be Easier Sometime in 2008


Jerry Eubanks, Superinten
dent of the Gulf Islands National
Seashore told the members of the
Residents and Leaseholders As
sociation that by this time next
year the road between Pensacola
Beach and Navarre Beach would
be completed. Speaking at their
June 11 meeting, he said, "Even-
tually, everything will be back to
normal, I hope. It will take a little
longer to finish the road to Fort


Pickens, but when the road is
' .. . .1,,, there w ill be

He said the park is in good
shape with buildings being re
paired and replaced. One notable
exception is the loss of thousands
of pine trees which have been re
moved from the park.
"There is very little shade in
the campground now," Eubanks
said. "And I am concerned for the


eagles, ospreys and owls."
Right now, the only means
of getting into the park is by bi-
cycling or hiking, beaching your
own boat or booking passage on
the ferry, according to Eubanks.
The PBRLA has changed its
regular meeting night to the sec
ond Monday of the month. The
next meeting will be Monday at 6
p.m. at the Pensacola Beach Corn
munity Church on July 9.


Children were ready to hit the water at the last day of

Church, June 8. The theme was Waterworks Park.

You meet some of the nicest
merchants in the pages of Island
Times Newspaper, One such per-
son is Pandora de Balthazar. Her
shop, on 9th Avenue, is wonder
ful. And Pandora is a wizard in
antique linens, textile art and the
goose down sleep system world.
I will focus on the sleep system
because I am an insomniac.
Pandora and her assistant, Toni,
took the time to teach me and let
me experience the goose down
sleep system.
In conjunction with that,
Pandora recommended that I read,
Power Sleep by Dr. James B.
Maas, which provides the science
behind the sleep system. I pur
chased the book from Pandora's
shop, and it is just what I needed.
Also I have been following the
instructions that both Pandora

Q: My computer has the
Microsoft's Vista on it. Can I go
back to Windows XP?
A:It is possible to replace
Windows Vista with a licensed
copy of Windows XP. Now, for
the bad news. The latest com-
puter hardware is designed for the
Vista Operating System, so Win-
dows XP may not know how to
configure some of your hardware.
For example, the video and sound
components may not register cor
rectly inXP.
After looking at the com
puter manufacturer's websites, I
have seen that the manufactur-
ers are not referencing Windows
XP on their new equipment com-
patibility lists. But, isn't that what
you would expect? Microsoft
would have no reason to make it
easy to stay with their older soft-
ware.
Computers with Windows
XP are still available through the
manufacturer's websites or by

It really makes a huge differ

What intrigued me most was en-

We were eating supper just
after sunset when we heard the
squeal of brakes on the narrow
road that separated our home from
the beach,
Our youngest immediately
shouted, Rusty! Our collie was
still outside the house and we all
ran to the front porch, heard the
sound of a speeding automobile,
and saw our beloved Rusty lying
on the edge of the road. All eight
of us ran down the stairs as
quickly as we could.
The cries of our children
bounced ahead as we ran. "Rusty!
Rusty!" echoed their frightened
voices. The dying collie lifted his
ruffled brown and white head from
the black asphalt. His eyes were
filled with puzzled excitement, The
late evening reds and yellows
clung heavily to the darkening
white dunes and a gentle crash
ing surf was the only background
to the sobs of small children.
The aged collie, still with the
grace of his youth, struggled des-
perately to get to his feet . to
bark his usual high-pitched greet
ing. He managed painful yelp and
a pitiful, jerking movement of his
one, unbroken leg. But Rusty's
eyes told his message. In just a
moment, when this sudden
strangeness had passed, he
would leap to his feet, run circles
around the children, and barking
happily, put his two feet in their
hands and dance on his hind legs.
Then he would run for the beach
listening to the laughter and ex-
cited voices that followed.

While they waited for me to
pull our old station wagon into
place, and their mother to call Doc
Andress, our children stroked
and petted, talked in soothing
voices, probed small fingers
through soft fur, and calculated
with childish wisdom how to mend
the awful wounds.
Then we lifted Rusty gently
into the car and headed for town.
Doctor Andress had agreed to
meet us at his office. Doc was our
children's hero. He had tenderly
placed splits on the broken wings
of wild birds, doctored injured
squirrels, and treated numerous
other small animals for our family
for many years. He was of a breed
they don't make very often.
Doc did a quick examination
of Rusty, then sent us home prom-
ising to keep in touch. He re
mained with Rusty until the early
morning hours and then called to
tell us that Rusty was gone. My
wife and I waited until morning to
tell the children, dreading the
thought.
Most of a lifetime has passed
since that summer on the beach.
My wife is now in a nursing home
with advanced dementia and it is
doubtful that she has many memo-
ries of Rusty, But the remainder
of the family does and we speak
of him at many family gatherings.
His story has been told and re
told to nearly thirty of my


children's children.
And with old age comes
more time to enjoy the simple plea
sure of reminiscing and letting our
minds roam. When I recall those
dayswhen our children were very
young, Rusty is often a part of
those thoughts. And allowing my
mind to imagine and wander much
more that I did when I was
younger I like to think that on that
long summer night as my wife and
I lay awake expecting Doc
Andress to call at any moment,
there was one of life's little hap
openings.
I can visualize clearly that
during that moment when Doc
Andress told us that Rusty was
gone, a sudden gust of night wind
passed over our home on the
beach and with it came a little
cloud of beach sand. And it is
easy to understand how those
small grains of sand settled
throughout our home and into the
innermost recesses of the minds
of all our family. They will remain
there for all of our lifetime. And
within those small grains brought
by the night wind Rusty still lives.
It only takes a moment of si
lence and concentration to bring
him back, And with our beloved
collie come the sounds of our
children running and laughing,
while winding their way through
sugar white sand dunes shout
ing "Rusty! Rusty!"
