Barefoot on the Beach


1 don't think I ever had an
imaginary friend. If I did, it's
been so long ago that the friend
would have vanished by now.
But, I do remember the imagi
nary friends which entered two
of my children's lives. These
creatures of their imagination
were so real that even I some
times believed in them. They, of
course, saw them, talked to
them, nurtured them, even fed
them real food.
Candy's friend was tiny, wet,
and wiggly. When she was about
five-years-old, she told me she
had a new friend. I assumed it was
someone from kindergarten. I was
wrong.
"He's my raindrop," she
said. "His name is Robert Rain
drop."
She held out her hand to
show me that he was sitting on
her palm. I looked, but did not
see anything.
"Where did you meet him?"
I asked.
"I got him off my window
sill," she said.
And, she and Robert Rain
drop went off to play. After a
while, she came and told me Rob
ert was hungry.
"What does he like to eat?"
I asked.
"Same as me. Bread and
mustard sandwiches," Candy an-
swered.
I made two sandwiches, took
them on two plates to the dining
room, and they quickly disap-
peared. Robert had a good appe
tite.


As time went on, Candy told
me about Robert's elaborate ward
robe. It seems he had raingear in
every color of the rainbow.
"Robert's wearing his red
raincoat today," she told me on
one occasion. "I got him some red
socks, too."
Another time, she dressed
him in a sou'wester, rain coat, and
boots, all purple. She didn't men
tion socks. I'm sure they were
purple, too.
I didn't know if I should call
a psychiatrist, get some kind of
school counseling, or should I
just let Robert Raindrop become
a permanent member of the fam-
ily? I quizzed some of my friends
who admitted that their children
had imaginary companions. One
told me she had a tea party ev
eryday for not one, but several of
her little girl's companions. She
said not to worry. The friend
would move out in time. Which
he did. After a few months, Candy
never mentioned Robert Rain-
drop again. Poof, just like that, he
disappeared.
My youngest daughter, Liz,
created a complete imaginary sce
nario. She had three imaginary
friends, Mrs. National, Heckell
and Hayride. She spent what I
thought was way too much time
with them, but her sisters thought
the whole charade was so cute.
Liz was five-years-old, and she
played with Hayride and Heckell.
Mrs. National just went with us
to do the grocery shopping.
One night she came down
the stairs and announced that she

was going to go live with Mrs.
National, Heckell, and Hayride.
She packed her little bag and was
ready to go.
"I thought they lived here," I
said, trying to divert her.
"No. They have their own
house. It's on our street, I want to
go there."
So, we all piled in to the car
and asked her the house number.
She said she didn't remember, but
she would know the house when
she saw it.
We were nearing the end of
Driftwood Boulevard when she
pointed her finger at a house with
a porch light burning. "That's it,"
she said,
We stopped and she got out
of the car. She picked up her little
bag, and started up the walk. I got

out of the car, just in case some-
one might grab her, especially three
imaginary someones. She
knocked on the door. There was
no answer.
She hesitated momentarily,
then picked up her bag and re
turned to the car. "They're not
here," she said. "They moved to
California. I guess I'll go home
now.
From that moment on, we
never heard another word about
the imaginary friends. Her sisters
actually missed her stories about
them, but when they inquired she

looked for her friends, but never
found them. Fortunately, we had
all pretty much forgotten about
them by then.
As for Robert Raindrop, he
took his designer wardrobe and
went back to his millions of sib
lings and cousins.
I wish I could have known
what kind of conversations my
daughters carried on with these
friends. On the other hand, maybe
I wouldn't want to know.
All I can say about imagi-
nary friends is that they are real,
at least to the child who knew
them. They move outjust as rap
idly as they move in. Apparently,
they are harmless, lovable, loyal,
and full of fun.
Everybody should have
friends like them.

Will wonders never cease?
The Trivia Master discovered
there were two fish hatcheries on
Pensacola Beach in answer to the
question, "There was once a fish
hatchery on Pensacola Beach.
Where was it located?" Jeff
Goudey was the first to e-mail the
answer the Trivia Master was
seeking, Range Point, so he'll get
a t-shirt. Sandi Johnson was run
ner-up with the same answer. End
of story.
Nope. Not so fast. Here
comes Loretta Browder in third
place with the following answer,
"At the EPA on Little Sabine Is
land." We checked this out with
Dr. Ray Wilhour of the EPA and
he said, "Yes, we have in the past
hatched fish for research pur
poses." So, there were two fish
hatcheries on the Beach. We stand
corrected, and will send a t-shirt
to Loretta. Incidentally, the ques
tion hatched a boatload of an

deceased, who lived on
Pensacola Beach for many years?
He was the head coach of the San

Tourist Council Announces Names of Funding Recipients


The Tourist Development
Council announced the names of
this year's recipients of funds,
generated by the Bed Tax in
Escambia County at their Septem-
ber 11 meeting. The major fund
ing went to the Pensacola Civic
Center, a totalof$2,164,964. Oth
ers who received money were the
Arts Council of Northwest
Florida, $60,000; Perdido Key
Charmberof Commerce, $113,000;
Pensacola Sports Association,
$229,536; and the Pensacola
Visitor's Information Center,
$1,205,212.
New member of the Council
from Pensacola Beach, Nan
Harper, told the Council, "We are
operating like a seagull with a
wounded wing after the storm.
Our entire island will be involved
in this year's Christmas promo
tion. Residents, tourists, and busi
nesses will benefit. Please keep
that in mind should there be any
funding available."
The Pensacola Beach Cham
ber of Commerce and the Santa
Rosa Island Authority's Public
Safety Department had both ap
plied for funding. The Chamber
had requested $20,000 for its Sea
son Your Holidays with Island


Spirit promotion and the SRIA
has asked for help in replacing
the antiquated lifeguard towers.
The funding requested for the
new towerswas $79,000 per tower.
Neither request was honored, al
though the Beach generates a
significant amount of Bed Tax
dollars which is used in TDC
funding. Last year the amount
was $1.4 million.


Members in addition to Nan
are Denis McKinnon, Jr, chair
man, Mike DeSorbo, Wanda
Cross, Nash Patel, Commissioner
Mike Whitehead, Nancy Halford,
P.C. Wu, and Andrew Rothfeder,
Portofino developer on
Pensacola Beach.
The next meeting of the TD C
will be December 4 on the second
floor of 211 S. Palafox St.

Fall is falling (somewhere)
and I am excited about some
cooler weather. You know, even
when it's miserably hot, there are
still some people who appreciate
that! Take my friends, Ted and
Rita Love-Perry. They own and
operate an air conditioning busi
ness and Rita was extremely
pleased for the heat this summer.
She says, "If we're gonna eat in
the winter, it's got to get hot in
the summer!"
Well spoken, Rita, and
thanks for the wonderful summer
vegetables you brought me for
my birthday. They are delicious
and that's the only way I ever get
them that fresh; when someone
else does the work and brings the
finished product to me.
I love lazy days in paradise.
Speaking of fall, that means par-
ties, parties, and more parties. I'm
going to be bringing you some of
my favorite party appetizers and
main dishes, Get your scissors
ready ...
But first, I'd like to share the
Top Ten of my greatest and most
wonderful summer festivities:
10. Deanna's Baby Shower:
First time I've experienced a "half
time" during gift opening! And
what a lovely and excited Mother
to-Be, along with Grandmother-
to Be, Glamorous Deb.
9. Martinis at the Elk's
where one man wanted to bottle
Paulette's laugh and sell it! (Also
referring to Ted Pence as Ted
Spence, which sounds awfully
close when martinis are involved.)
8. Biloxi Birthday trip with
the girls until 4:00 am!
7. Red, White & Blues
Week: that includes watching
KABOOM fireworks and the
BlueAngels from our deck! Also
includes the Watermelon Suck-
Off atTommy and Wendy Grice's
home!
6. Liz Hewson's yearly
visithome. Can't wait 'tilnextyear.
5. "60-Year-Olds Birthday
Bash" That was a major amount
of fun, even though we got a
glimpse of the future. Hey, if we
can still play as hard as those
people, we will be in great shape
for our age!
4. Sunset at the Lodge,
when we discovered where the
"Elk Antlers" had gone !

Through Island Course


Many visitors swim, bike
and stroll while on Pensacola
Beach. Others take it to a whole
different level. Professional
athletes and weekend warriors
will be on Pensacola Beach, Sat
urday, October 6 for the 2007
Santa Rosa Island Triathlon.
The event will start with a 500
meter swim in the Gulf of Mexico
beginning at 7:30 a.m. The race
continues with a 20 mile bike
ride and 5K run.
Since its inception in 1996,
the SRI-Tri has been a favorite
among triathletes. The course
has changed over the years to
accommodate increasing par
ticipation, but the basic idea has
not -to host a challenging race
on beautiful Santa Rosa Island.
Former race director Ann
Knight recalls the historic year.
"Remember how cold it was for
the start and how shallow the
water in Santa Rosa Sound was!
The packet pick-up was in the
Santa Rosa Island Authority
building and the swim went
around the pier and finished be
tween Circle K and Flounder's.


The transition area with no bar
ricades was in the parking lot at
Circle K and the bikers headed
west into the Gulf Islands Na
tional Seashore almost to Ft.
Pickens and back. The run was
in the neighborhood on the
sound side of the Island and the
party was at Flounder's beach
side! What fun we had."
This year's event kicks off
at the Hampton Inn with a Fri
day fitness expo from 10 a.m. to
7 p.m. Competitors can register
and pick up race packets all day
Friday and up until 7 a.m. on
race day.
Registration fees are $85 for
individuals and $135 for relay
teams until October 3. Registra
tion fees escalate $15 after that
date.
A post race awards party will
be hosted by The Dock on
Pensacola Beach. Elite racers
can earn up to $1000 for a win
ning time. Age group and over
all awards will also be given to
individuals and relay teams.

. Friends Say Goodbye to Former Mardi Gras Queen


.-L 1..[-105 111 1 iif i3 d11 u ... ....... ..




. .. .
By Dr. Chuck Randle
Pastor, Pensacola Beach Community Church


I have discovered that it's
never too late to express appre
ciation to someone for their kind-
ness, generosity, friendship, or
for a myriad of other acts of car-
ing. That was brought home again
when I read about a former presi-
dent of New York University who
told of remembering a high school
teacher who had introduced him
to English Literature and laid the
foundation for his academic life.
He wrote her a thank you note
and was totally surprised when
he received this letter in return:
"Dear Willie:
I can't tell you how much
your note meant to me. I am in
my eighties, and living alone in
a small room, cooking my own
meals, lonely and like the last
leafoffall lingering behind. You
will be interested to know I
taught school fifty years and
yours is the first note of appre-


ciation lever received. It came
on a cold, blue morning and it
cheered me as nothing has for
years.
At the end of the day I look
back and realize many things left
undone, and one that is so very
important often gets neglected
writing little notes of appreciation
to people who have made me
more aware of the blessings I re-
ceive through their friendship and
love. I know there are those who
make a special effort to accom-
plish goals which impact their
lives and, in turn, impact mine, as
well as others. I can't name them
all, but as I close the day I will
give thanks to God for the cross-
ings of our lives, and make a com-
mitment to work more diligently
in sharing my appreciation. I be-
lieve it is true, as Teilhard de
Chardin said, "The way we treat
others is the way we treat God."

Where Are All These People From?


Did you ever ask yourself as
you were driving in the core area
on Pensacola Beach, "Where did
all these people come from?" You
may be surprised to learn that
they come from all over every
where.
According to an end of sum-
mer report issued by Sandy
Johnston, manager of the Visitor's
Information Center, more tourists
visit the Beach from Louisiana


than any other state. The rest of
the top ten are Texas, Alabama,
Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas,
Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and
Illinois.
Perhaps, even more surprise
ing are the numbers of people
who come to vacation on the
Beach from other countries with
Italy topping the list. Italy is fol-
lowed by Spain, France, Germany,
Canada, England, Serbia, Scot


land, Switzerland, and the Neth-
erlands.
The volunteers at the VIC
see more than 3000 visitors per
month during the off season and
more than 5000 visitors per month
during the peak summer vacation
time.

Wauty d each
By Danah Gibson


Q: How do I to remove hair
color?
A: There's nothing like col
oring your hair to make you feel
and look refreshed. A new hair
color can do wonders for your
confidence level or sometimes
it can spell disaster!
The color on the box at the
drug store might look really
pretty, but once you have used
it, the reactions might vary from
"Oh #&*@!" to throwing you
into a major depression. If you
fall into this category, here are
some suggestions on how to
remove hair color.
Okay, let's say the color
you have been dreaming about
and are attempting to do at
home went totally wrong. It may
be too bright, uneven, too dark
or not the shade you were ex
pecting. Blaming the product
company will not help, what
you need is damage control.
Hair color is not like paint
that can be easily removed with
paint remover. This is your hair!
You have to wear it everyday.
Your best bet is to go to a pro
fessional colorist. The only
way to actually remove color is
with a color removal product,


PBRLA


Plans


Election
The Pensacola Beach Resi
dents and Leaseholders Associa
tion is looking for Beach members
of the organization to serve as the
2008 officers, according toTona
DeMers, president.
Nominations may be made
by callingTona at 850 932-2190.
The slate will be presented
at the Monday night meeting at
six p.m. on October 8. Nomina
tions will also be accepted from
the floorand the election will take
place that night.
Newofficers willassume their
duties in January.
Nominees must be members
in good standing of the PBRLA
as of August 1 to be eligible to
run. The October 8 meeting will
be at the Pensacola Beach Comn
munity Church.


otherwise known as bleach.
This is nothing to mess around
with at home, unless you're pre
pared for a super short hairdo a
la Brittany Spears. These prod
ucts should be used by the pros
only.
What you can do at home
to rectify the situation is a color
cover-up. Depending on the
color you selected, you might
be able to cover with a shade or
two darker. Always call the
color manufacturer and seek
their advice. If you mix differ
ent tones you can end up with
a horribly flat, muddy color, or
something so bright that it
looks like the aliens are coming
in for a landing.
Mistakes do happen, but
learn from them and take care
not to let them happen again. A
professional colorist can usu
ally do something to help you.
Make the best of this situation
and get a flattering new cut.
Perhaps you should accessorize
heavily, get some groovy new
shoes, anything to draw atten
tion away from your not-so
lovely hair color.
Please remember to use
products that are safe, because
a head full of orange hair is bet
ter than no hair at all.
Here's to good health and
happy hair!


I usually write about the comr
fort you can gain by using top qual
ity bedding and accessories to
make your sleep and relaxation ar
eas comfy, and thejoy you gather
giving your body the great sleep it
needs. Time for a break. Let's go to
the Beach and use our eyes for
some comfort andjoy!
The Beach is so beautiful to
day It's simply delightful! Think
ing back to September 2004, it's
important to realizejust how far we
have come in our recovery, and
how our community's beauty is
beginning to shine like never be
fore.
If you haven't taken the time
for a drive, a walk, or a bike ride
around the Beach, grab a friend,
and do it now. Enjoy! Express
yourself! Laugh! Share! It will
truly make a difference in your life,
and in your enjoyment of our in
credible beaches and lovely
beachside community.
While you are doing this,
also take time to look into the eyes
of your companion, and those
who you love, or evenjust meet.
When you talk with them listen
with your eyes, as well as your
ears. See what they have to share
with you. The problems they have
may be ones you can solve. You
may havejoy to share and com
fort to give.
The joy you can share, and
the comfort you give from truly
knowing one's positive, honest


feelings will go with them forever.
It will be beautiful each time you
revisit that feeling. It isjust like
our beaches retaining their natu
ral beauty year after year, chang
ing with the ebbs and tides, yet
constantly delighting us with
their natural beauty.
In fact, here's an exercise to
try. When you speak to another
person, stop and look them in the
eyes while carrying on the con
versation. Do the same when they
respond or share with you.
The eyes of the person can
give you the opportunity to learn
so much more about that person
and perhaps about yourself. Try
it. It's amazing how much less
you have to say when you use
your eyes and how much more
satisfying the conversation is.
Feelings like joy, love, pain, de
light, fear, anger, and need are so
vivid in the eyes. Take time to




/i I
I I
I ff


look and listen.
Share the laughter you have,
and encourage everyone to en
joy the gifts our Island offers.
Each and every day we have
the opportunity to look and listen
to those around us. We can share
the joy we feel. We can lift each
otherup for a better and more beau
tiful day! Each of you can be as
beautiful as a Pensacola Beach
sunset. I can see it in your eyes.

great adjingle that stays with you
for life. Never mind if the product
works or it's a product you can
even use, it's all about the adver-
tising.
My earliest memories of ads
were from television, I still remem-
ber how the mom in the Windex
commercial had a toaster so

II . I I I v i ,y
Windex? Please, you are making
a very big assumption that I do
windows,
Iamnot sure ifthese qualify
for advertisements. Maybe they
might even have been the first
infomercials I grew up on School-
house Rock and the health and
nutrition commercials that aired
during Saturday morning car
toons onABC. I didn't really care
for the cartoons. I liked what was
being advertised. Afew years ago
I bought the entire CD set of
Schoolhouse Rock and used it in
my classroom when I taught. And
on more than one occasion my
son, Harry, has had to listen to
me sing, "I hanker for a hunk of, a
slab or slice or chunk of, a snack
that is a winner, yet won't spoil
my dinner, I hanker for a hunk of
cheese."
As an adult, I watch very
little commercial television. I sub-
scribe to cable and have to re-
member "It's not TV It's HBO."
! I Ii r apremiumnotto
have my mind cluttered with any-


the commercials.
I do, however, read three
newspapers cover to cover: the
WallStreetJournal, the New York
Times (Sunday edition only) and
m', personal favorite, the Island
What the WSJ lacks in
great attention getting ads, it more
than makes up for in content. The
WSJ has come a long way from
being nothing but a publication
about finances and the economy.
As for the Sunday edition of
the New York Times let's just
say a girl can dream, can't she?
Half-way through the lead story
on the front page and while
searching for A16 to read how it
ends, I lose myself in the ads on
the pages in between. Next thing
I know, I see myself wearing a
Winston Solitaire and clutching a
Tod's tote while heading off to a
private showing of some
designer's fall collection at Lord
Taylor that I plan to pack in my
Louis Vuitton luggage while jet
ting off to some exotic location
serviced by British Airways.
The Island times, simply put,
is a reality check. I feel myself get
ting homesick missing my fam-
ily, friends and all the great fun I
had growing up on Pensacola
Beach. Once I've finished with
Flounder's and Crab's advertise-
ments, unlike the other newspa-
pers we subscribe to, the Island
Times doesn't get recycled, but
gets saved in my leather portfo-


may officially end on September
28, but thejingles, logos, slogans
and icons created from some of
the best in the business on Madi-
son Avenue will live on in my
brain forever To see which two
advertising slogans and icons
will be inducted into this year's
Madison Avenue Advertising
Walk of Fame, log onto http://
advertising.yahoo.com/
advertisingweek 07/index.html.
The winners are being an
nounced concurrently with the
Island Times'press time.
"The Few The Proud. The
Marines." _rt r -vote. So did "I
want my I! and "All The
News That's Fit To Print." and
"Good To The Last Drop." and
"Have it your way" and "We Try
Harder,"
Then there were the icons
the Maytag repairman, the
Coppertone girl, Snap, Crackle
and Pop, and the Travelocity
Roaming Gnome. And to think I
was only supposed to vote for
two.
Until next time...
