The year 2006 will mark a historic turning point for Pensacola Beach Elkdom when members move into their spacious
new Lodge building early next fall. New officers installed on Saturday, March 25 are: (Seated, L to R): Ron Magee, Inner
Guard and Jason Wiggins, Tiler. (Standing L to R) are: Patsy Ledford, Treasurer; Elaine Tennimon, Secretary; Robert Randle,
Four Year Trustee; Eric Marcey, Esteemed Leading Knight; George Scribner, Five Year Trustee; Barry McCleary, Exhalted
Ruler; Mark Eddy, Esteemed Loyal Knight; Chuck Connell, Esteemed Lecturing Knight; and Gayle Shackelford, Chaplain.









Beach Elks Chalk Up 43 Years of Service To Community


The Pensacola Beach Elks
Lodge has been the glue that has
held the Beach residential com-
munity together for forty-three
years. And, this year the Elks will
celebrate a major landmark when
they move into their grandiose
building on Pensacola Beach
Boulevard possibly in September.
Under the guidance of the new
Exhalted Ruler, Barry McCleary,
the Elks will transfer all their
benevolent activities, ceremonies
and parties to the 10,000 square
foot facility. Amenities will in-
clude a large activity room, din-
ing space, kitchen, and open
seated bar on the first floor.
The building will take ad-
vantage of the view of Little
Sabine Bay with a wrap-around
deck which will provide elegant
outdoor space for cookouts and
gatherings.
The upstairs which will be
serviced with an elevator will be
the formal meeting room for Elks
rituals. A small activity room and
offices for the secretary and club
manager, will also be located on
the second floor.
Chris Dugas is the chairman
of the building committee for the
$2.2 million structure. Other
committee members are Don
Stevens, John Decker, Elaine
Tenniman, George Scribner,
Dave Smith, Dude Hausmann,
Brian Mann, Joe Brennan, Ray
Creary, Lance Drown and Dale
Sogor.
Funding for the new lodge
building came from pledges from
members and insurance coverage
after Hurricane Ivan destroyed
the former building. Currently,


the Elks are housed on the top
level of the Beach Marina.
Originally, the Pensacola
Beach Elks Lodge was number
2256, founded by 122 members.
Six founding members are still
active in the lodge. They are Tom
Miller, Dick Zelius, Joe Knight,
Bob Jones, J.R. Turner, and Joe
Rockwell.
Several years ago, Elks
Lodge #2256 merged with a
downtown lodge and the new
number is 497. There are now
800 members. Membership is
open to ladies and many women
hold dual membership as Elks
and in their own original orga-
nization, Ladies of the Elks. LOE
holds separate meetings, con-
ducts its own fundraisers, and
completes numerous projects, all
to benefit the Elks Lodge.
Elks and the LOE take the
word "benevolent" seriously.
Over their long history, they have
been noted for their ongoing con-
tributions not only to their own
children's hospital and therapy
services, but to numerous local
agencies and organizations. They
are active supporters every year
of youth sports including their
Hoop Shoot contest and contri-
butions to the Gulf Breeze Sports
Association.
Forty-three years covers a
major piece of history on
Pensacola Beach. When that his-
tory is punctuated year in and
year out with constant caring for
an endless string of needs and
causes, it's easy to see why the
Elks have thrived. And, why they
are still the glue that holds the
residential community together.


LADIES, LIGHT, LAUGHTER Ladies of the Elks Officers took their oaths with great joy as
they were charged by Esteemed Esquire Ron Christian to carry out the duties of each office
during the traditional candle lighting ceremony. The LOE Officers who were installed Saturday,
March 25 at the Pensacola Beach Lodge are: (L to R) Elizabeth Glackin, Chaplain; Donna Dotson,
Treasurer; Theresa Ivie, Secretary; Shirley Gaddis, Vice President; and Amy DePew, President.


AOK Wraps It Up Until Next Year


Everything came up roses
for the Pensacola Beach Associa-
tion of Mardi Gras Krewes after
their year started in a field of
thorns. The Krewes faced the
nearly impossible task of raising
thirty thousand dollars to fund
the Krewe of Wrecks parade. The
Santa Rosa Island Authority
which had financed all the pa-
rade expenses in prioryears, con-
tributed $10,000, the most they

AOK ended with excess funds

Andrea Brunt, Head Wreck said.
"Now, we find we will have

Although, to date, not all the
bills had been received, there will
still be a surplus. The Krewe of
Wrecks Board of Directors recom-
mended that the excess funds be
put in a CD to be used for future
parade expenses. Artie Davis,
Krewe of Bananimals Captain,
moved to place the money in a CD,
but retain a $50 parade fund for
miscellaneous expenses. The
motion passed unanimously.
In reviewing the 2006 pa-
rade, Andrea said that both Buck

They will make

This year's parade contained
a total of 36 floats, three radio sta-
tions, and three marching units,
along with the convertibles carry-
ing Krewe of Wrecks royalty. It
took just under two hours for the
parade to run the Via de Luna
route.
Representatives from krewes
who attended the meeting were
Danah Gibson, Artie Davis, Jay
Brykcznski, Chrissy Cook, Jane
McGrath, and Sam Magee.
Andrea Brunt conducted the
meeting in the absence of the AOK
President Deb Friedman, who was

Barefoot on the Beach


Today, I am researching
things that don't make sense.
Mostly, it's about common say-
ings tht we all use from time to
time in our conversations. Let's
jump right in with the descrip-
tion of someone who has put
away a few too many. That makes
a guy "Drunk as Cooter Brown."
Who was Cooter Brown? Was
he for real? Was he the village
drunk? Or what about "drunk as
a lord?" Which lord? Surely, not
the lords-a-leaping who were
chasing the maids-a-milking in
the carol, Twelve Days of Christ-
mas.
"Drunk as a skunk" has one
good quality, it rhymes. But, tell
me, how many drunk skunks
have you ever seen? Skunks have
some pretty obnoxious habits, but
I don't think drinking booze is
one of them.
Let's travel along to mental
conditions. Take the phrase,
"Crazy as a March Hare." Even
the most knowledgeable psychia-
trist would go off track on that
one. Crazy as a small rabbit run-
ning loose in the months of
March? Puhleeze. And how
about "Strange as Old Nick's hat-
band?" Puhleeze, again. Or "Bats
in the Belfry?' Puhleeze or did I
already say that?
Moving along, we find in-
animate objects which come to
life in odd ways, like "Dumb as
a Doornail, Smart as a Whip, or
Cute as a Button." I will leave
these to your imagination. You


By Jane Waters Cooper
may know more than I do about
doornails, whips and buttons.
It is not unusual for my hus-
band, Frank, a Georgia native to
tell me "It's cold as kraut outside."
I thought kraut was warm, fer-
mented cabbage which dresses up
hot dogs and Reuben sandwiches.
But, maybe, Georgia folks have a
different take on Kraut.
Speaking of weather, where
in the world did the phrase "Un-
der the Weather" come from? If
you're not feeling up to par, I can
just visualize you sleeping under
Channel 28. Here's hoping you
will soon be "Fair to Middlin.'"
Cats always find their way
into weird old stuff. For instance,
if a monthly rental on Pensacola
Beach is outrageous, it's "Higher
than a Cat's Back." How high is
that? Wouldn't higher than the
Empire State Building be better?
How about this one, "What's the
matter, kid, cat got your tongue?"
Poor kid. He goes off searching
for the cat that has his tongue.
He may have been the same
little fellow who was "knee high
to a grasshopper" the last time you
saw him. Do grasshoppers have
knees?
My research could become
book length since there must be
hundreds of sayings which don't
make sense.
I will just mention a couple
of very old-fashioned sayings. (1)
You're the cat's meow. The trans-
lation is you are pretty as a run-
way model. (2) You're the bee's

Have You Hugged Your Pillow Today?


Is there anything more com-
forting than your very own pil-
low? Pandora de Balthazar,
owner of Decadence Down,
doesn't think so. When she heard
about Karen Cook Cowen's ef-
forts to make life a little easier
for 150 children in protective
custody in Santa Rosa County,
Pandora went to work.
She donated 77 Hungarian
goose down child size pillows to
Karen's kids.
"To think of those children
and all of their loss then I
thought about giving them pil-
lows," Pandora said. "The pil-
lows would be something of
comfort to hold their little
heads for what could be a very
long night."
So, Pandora had the pil-


lows ready, but they did not have
covers. Mollie Thibodeaux, a
member of Karen's crew came to
the rescue by recruiting volun-
teers Kay Amberson and Shelby
Smith who found colorful fabric
and stitched 77 miniature pillow
shams.
The real meaning of the ef-
forts of these ladies came from a
little girl who came to a county
coordinator, hugging her pillow.
She hugged it and hugged it. The
pillow was all she had.
Currently, Karen's group of
volunteers is in the process of fill-
ing 150 Easter baskets for the
children. Anyone who wishes to
help with this project can take
donations of cash, Easter candies,
or trinkets to the Real Estate
House on the Beach by April 5.


Huggable Hungarian goose down pillows were donated to the children
in protective custody in Santa Rosa County. It took the teamwork of (L to
R): Pandora de Balthzar, Decadence Down; Mollie Thibodeaux, Shelby
Smith and Kay Amberson to pull off this monumental donation.

Open House


Tours of the new Pensacola
Beach Elementary School will be
featured at the Open House be-
ginning at 3:30 p.m. on Thurs-
day, April 27.
The Open House will be the
first time the entire community
and all interested persons will
have a chance to see how the
renovated school building has
been upgraded.
"All the students, teachers
and staff are proud of this
school," Jeff Castleberry, princi-
pal said. We want everyone to
come and see how good the
school looks after the renova-
tions."
Businesses, organizations
and others will have the oppor-
tunity to sign up as Partners in


Education with the school at the
Open House. Traditionally, the
Beach School has always had
Partners from the business com-
munity. Businesses usually de-
velop a close association with the
students, and help them in many
different ways. Information will
be available for interested groups
and businesses.
The Pensacola Beach El-
ementary School, now a charter
school, ranks at the top of the
schools in the state academically.
The school has always had the
support of the community, and
Principal Castleberry is looking
forward to a large crowd on
Thursday.
Conna O'Donovan is chair-
ing the event.

Well, Spring has sprung, the
leprechauns have gone back into
hiding and beer is back to its
natural color! So, we have a little
break before things begin "hop-
ping" again on our little Beach.
I need a break from spring break,
having spent the week with my
five-year-old grandson, Jesiah.
Lord, I need his energy, not to
mention his excitement and en-
thusiasm. But, to him, a week at
Nanny and Pappy's is better than
Disney Land! I've beento Disney
never do it again. He's right, it is
better here. I didn't do a lot of
cooking last week as most of our
meals were ordered at the drive-
thru at "Happy Donalds". That's
his favorite and that's what he's
always called it. We took him
on a trip to The Zoo, which is an
all day thing, but worth it.
Another day was spent at the
Gulfarium in Ft. Walton. After
spending around $35 for entry,
we're watching the dolphin show
when Jesiah says, "Hey, Nanny,
look at the bird!"
Of course, seagulls know
when it's feeding time for the
animals. Right before we lost my
mother, Jesiah had a dream in
which he saw great-granny fly-
ing through the clouds like a bird.
When I told my mother this, she
smiled and said, "Then maybe
that's how he'll see me." So, ev-
ery time we see a bird, we say
"hello" to great-granny, even at
a dolphin show.
He and Pappy went shop-
ping for X-Box games, which
they play endlessly, so that gave
me a time to catch the last of the
Pub Crawl and share in celebrat-
ing Sherri Greene's 50th birth-
day! It was wonderful to see her
and George again since they've
moved to Alabama.
Special thanks to my dear
friends, Courtney and Jim
Winstead, for giving me a ride
home. I swear that Caddy does
love the beach!
On Sunday, it was time for
Jesiah to go home. He never
wants to leave Nanny and
Pappy's, so we tried to explain
spring break to him. But all he
really understood was he got to
stay at our house and there was
no school (he's only in pre-K).
Eight days is not long enough for


a visit in his book. We took him
home by way of another "Happy
Donalds" with a playground and
he was fine by the time he got
home. We had a little time to
spend with Quincy, (she's still too
young to realize the magic of
staying with us, but it won't be
long). Right now, for Jesiah it's
all magical fun with Pappy, leav-
ing toys scattered, staying up late,
excitement and a captive audi-
ence. I hope he never loses that
excitement and enthusiasm for
life. For now, we are two very
exhausted grandparents headed
home for the sofa, where we im-
mediately went to sleep. The
good thing is that my daughter
and I have finally found a boy we
can agree on!
I really did cook this recipe
a couple of weeks ago, and I
found that if you added a green
vegetable, it's a meal by itself.
Okay, let's cook....

Shrimp & Crab
Casserole

1 onion, chopped
1 small bell pepper, chopped
1 cup chopped green onions
1 rib of celery, chopped
1 stick margarine or butter
1 Ib shrimp, peeled & deveined
Fresh or froz. Asparagus spears
or broccoli flowerettes
% Ib velveeta cheese
1 can evaporated milk
3 cans lump crab meat, or 1 Ib
fresh
1 cup bread crumbs
salt, red pepper, black pepper

Saute onion, bell pepper,
green onion tops and celery in
melted butter. Add shrimp and
simmer until liquid is gone. Melt
cheese in milk (easier if you cut
up cheese), then add to shrimp
mixture. Fold in crab meat and
asparagus or broccoli, season to
taste and pour into casserole dish.
Top with breadcrumbs and bake
at 350 degrees for 20 minutes
(Tip: you can also add scallops,
fish or oysters)
Serve immediately withyour
favorite bread.
Hope you enjoy.

the deserved reputation as a very unso-
phisticated wine that was served from
straw-covered bottles that were quickly
emptied so that they could serve as
candleholders. All that changed in 1996,
when the DOCG (Denomination of Con-
trolled Origin, which requires labels that
must state wines' zone of original and
that the wines meet certain production
standards) appellation of Chianti
Classico was finalized. This action
served to establish the highest standards
for vineyards and winemakers. As of
2005, Chianti Classico producers are
united under the fourteenth-century logo
of the "Profile of the Black Rooster,"
which will appear on an qualified bottles
of wine. T his ensures consumers of the
highest quality Chianti. Hint: Chianti
Classico is made from at least 80 per-
cent Sangiovese grapes, which may be
blended with other Italian and interna-
tional red varietals. Chianti varies with
how and where the grapes are grown,
the percentages of the different variet-
ies of grapes used, the method of aging,
including the type of oak used, the size
of the barrels, and their age. At Beach
Wines and Liquors, Inc. we know wine,
and will be happy to show you our large
selection of wines, including fine
Chiantis. We're located at 5B Via de
Luna across from the Hilton Garden
Inn. Call us today at 932-8850. --adv --

QUEENS PLANT SEA OATS
The queens of the Krewe of
Nauga, purchased sea oats at the
Beach School, and then planted
them at Morgan Park. Gwen
Gibson and others from Danah's
Hair Salon appreciated the in-
structions they received along
with the plants. It seems that, like
most everyone, they had never
planted sea oats before.
RED DRESS HASHERS
The Red Dress Hashers fol-
low the party scene. After partici-
pating in McGuire's Prediction
Race, they brightened the scene
at Paradise Bar and spent the
weekend at the Paradise Inn be-
fore returning home to Pensacola
and other Southeastern cities.
WINNING BARLEY WINE
Twenty-two Florida craft
breweries submitted over 70
beers to a panel of beer judges
and McGuire's "What the Gentle-
men on the Floor is Having" Bar-
ley Wine was awarded "Best of
Show" in Tampa following a
Florida Brewers Guild Festival
held on March 4. Just scoot
across the bridge to McGuire's
to have a glass, but hurry, it's
only brewed once a year. When
it's gone, it's gone.

FLY AWAY

T L22W JARD'5 TON
by E.K Hewson


Spring has sprung. The
grass has riz. I wonder where my
husband is?
No, really, I wonder where
my husband is.
Last week spring eased its
way in to Havelock with tempera-
tures in the high 60s to low 70s
and everything starting to bloom,
including our lawn. As usual I
took my couple of hours of "me"
time on Saturday which normally
consists of a trip to the Commis-
sary to buy groceries or the War-
rior Library to return overdue
books and a quick workout at the
Devil Dog Gym or the Combat
Pool. Normally, when I return
from one of my Saturday after-
noon outings, I am greeted by my
two Harrys (husband and son)
who have spent many weekends
this past winter refurbishing a
1960s wooden lifeguard boat re-
covered off the Jersey Shore.
Young Harry always greets
me first and waylays me with
tales of how his dad let him use
power tools, that he had Sprite
to drink with lunch and quickly
asks if he can have a sleepover
with one of his friends.
Then Harry, my husband,
saunters over, gives me a kiss and
inquires as to how my afternoon
was. Getting better, I always
think to myself, as I survey what
is in front of me a Marine of-
ficer who has gracefully aged
over the past 18 years wearing
khakis, a blue chambray shirt and
leather Sperry Topsiders with no
socks. His full head of regulation
cut hair is almost completely gray
and on these afternoons it is pep-
pered with bits of sawdust, paint
and flecks of fiberglass. As al-
ways he helps me carry in and
put away the groceries and more
often than not we enjoy an ice
cold micro-brew beer while he


tells me about the progress he's
made on the boat or I ramble on
about the lack of selection of
books in our tiny base library.
So you can only imagine the
utter shock of it all when I re-
turned home on a most glorious
Saturday with the intent of de-
vouring gourmet hors d'oeuvres
while sipping a fine red wine
with my husband who is some-
times more like a fictionalized
character out of a Nicholas
Sparks novel only to be greeted
by a Larry the Cable Guy
wannabe.
"Harry, where is your dad?"
I ask.
"Oh, he's out back cutting
the lawn."
That's what I was afraid of,
I think to myself. Yes, for all to
see, there sat my husband on a
bright orange lawn tractor wear-
ing jeans (not his sexy 501s),
work boots (bought them at Wal-
Mart), a sleeveless t-shirt (usu-
ally these end up as paint rags),
a ball cap (I didn't even know
he owned a ball cap), drinking
a Budweiser and cutting the
grass.
"Sweets, can you help with
me with the groceries?" I ask try-
ing to smile and not notice the
unnerving makeover of my hus-
band.
"Can't sugar lips, it's gonna
rain soon and I gotta 'git-r-
done'!" he says.
While I put away the last of
the food, I replayed in my mind
the words "gonna" and "git-r".
I am not sure what happened to
my Yankee bred, English Lit ma-
jor husband last weekend, but
this Girl-Raised-In-The-South
enjoyed the moment.
Until next time...
Luv,
Lizzard

"I L J


leauty liach

By Danah & Gwen Gibson


This week I would like to ex-
plain some of the differences be-
tween professional shampoos and
the kind that you can buy at the
grocery store along with why us-
ing the right shampoo on the
wrong hair is not a good thing.
The first thing that I will tell
you is that there are good and bad
inboth choices of shampoos. The
biggest difference in profes-
sional, salon quality shampoo
and everyday, drug store sham-
poos is the chemical make-up.
The professional products are 3
to 4 percent water. Most sham-
poos available at the grocery
stores are 23 to 24 percent wa-
ter. Now, if you normally glob a
big handful of shampoo on your
hair anyway, then this really
doesn't matter. Salon grade
shampoos have less water, so are
more concentrated. You need a
smaller amount to get the desired
effect.
The same rule of thumb ap-
plies to conditioners.
Of course, the salon grade
products are more expensive and
with good reason. If a manufac-
turer supplies a shampoo which
boasts strength and protein en-
hancers, the protein molecule has
to be broken down small enough
to penetrate the hair shaft. This
is where the expense lies. Prod-


ucts can advertise that they have
all the protein in the world, even
if there is just a small amount in
the mixture. The protein does not
do any good unless it gets inside
the hair shaft. You might as well
put a pork chop on your head!.
As for"Pro-V," w\ lu1 is .lll '
A professional vitamin? Great
marketing, but get real.
As for the right shampoo for
the right hair, follow your hair
type to make a good choice.
Coarse red hair needs moisture.
Fine hair needs volume. Chemi-
cally treated hair needs some-
thing specifically designed for
that.
Shampoos designed to help
ease a condition should be used
with caution. A common mistake
when using dandruff shampoos
is using them everyday. That can
actually make the problem worse.
Every third day should be just
fine.
There are a variety of prod-
ucts available,consult your hair-
dresser to find the right one for
you. The investment you make in
the correct shampoo and condi-
tioner is a step toward a more
beautiful you. If you have any
questions, call the Hair Hotline
at 932-4323.
Here's to good health and
great hair.

Espo's Surf Report


ri' F, et?0')i Es po

Hurricane Surf..


In the last few years
Pensacola has seen some of the
biggest and most powerful hur-
ricane waves in our history.
The outlook for the next 15
years seems like it will follow
that trend.
You see, the cycle of hur-
ricane activity goes round ev-
ery 20 to 50 years or so.
Since(Erin/Opal) in 1995, ac-
tivity has been growing stron-
ger and will probably continue
to do so until around the year
2020 and the threat of the
most intense hurricanes, cat-
egories 3 to 5, is especially
high. That's not good.
Here's the way it works.
Hurricanes feed off warm ocean
waters of at least
(80degrees),like our Gulf. The
warmer the water, the better it is
for hurricanes. The waters also
need to be around 150feet deep,
because these storms churn up
seas so violently that they can
drag up cold water, which kills
the storm by cutting off its power
source.
Hot, humid air rising off our
Gulf is the fuel that drives these
tropical storms and hurricanes.
As that moist air rises, it cools
and condenses into giant storm
clouds, at the same time unleash-


ing a large amount
powers these storms.

A Cross in the Sand

By Dr. Chuck Randle
Pastor, Pensacola Beach Community Church
r.'.5


With the beginning of Lent
on Ash Wednesday, the Christian
community now is in that "In
Between Time" as we wait to
observe the events of Holy Week,
followed by our Easter celebra-
tion. The "in between time" of-
fers opportunity to move through
moments of introspection.
"Know thyself," has been a good
suggestion, for it is so easy to live
through our days and not take
time to examine the reasons for
our actions, or to establish a phi-
losophy of living that will be pro-
ductive and rewarding. It is so
easy to let each day come and go,
reacting to all the pressures and
opportunities without having
consciously worked out that phi-
losophy. Not to recognize a phi-
losophy is a philosophy in itself,
responding on the run with no


guidelines to offer stability and
direction. This "in between
time" canbe a wonderful forward
leap if we take advantage of it.
Perhaps sitting on the beach and
watching the waves come and go,
or sitting on a pier seeing the
ever-widening ripples of water,
or just watching the twinkling of
the stars on a dark night, could
afford the opportunity to "know
thyself." Or, perhaps a time of
quietness with soft music and a
book that presses us with some
hard questions to consider, would
be productive. This "in between
time" may be a wonderful oppor-
tunity for spiritual growth and
development.
With the busy activities of
the summer, this may be the last
opportunity for quite a while to
"know thyself."


Jim and Lila Cox became
Pensacola Beach Optimist Club
members just in time to help with
the April 8 Fiesta Fundraiser
which will be at Flounder's. The
Beach couplelook forward to
volunteer roles to support youth
activities including the upcoming
Pensacola Beach Elementary
School Oratorical Contest.
