AV


Gordon Paulus is not seeking fame and fortune for the special way he treats his wife Karen, and his daughter, Brianna. Nor does he expect praise and gratitude for all the coaching,
counseling, and directing he does for Pensacola Beach youth. Gordon has humbly accepted the honor of being the Island Times Father of the Year as a representative of all Pensacola Beach
dads, whose day-by-day deeds rarely make headlines. Story, Page 2.

Gordon Paulus Ranks At The Top of the Best Dads Chart


Island Times Father o
Year, Gordon Paulus take
therhood seriously. Just as
daughter, Brianna, who
considers him the
world's best dad. Up
until two years ago,
Gordon was the sports
editor of the Pensacola
News Journal, where he
worked sixty to eighty
hours each week. Still,
he made time to take an
active role in his
daughter's life. He be-
gan coaching her sports
teams when she was
five-years-old, playing
t-ball. Since then he has
been head or assistant
coach of baseball and
soccer teams for the past
eight years.
Although he has a
love and vast knowledge
sports, Gordon never con
himself to that area.
Brianna was in kindergart
the Pensacola Beach Eleme
School, he volunteered to h
the classroom. That started
off on many years of volu


f the
es fa-
;k his


positions in the PTA. It was Gor-
don who successfully directed the
school's Fall Festival fundraiser,

Gordon has taken a position in

with Gulf Power Company.
Karen put her husband's
deeds into words when she
said, "He leads by example. He
is truly a fine husband and fa-
ther. On the best dads chart,
Gordon ranks right up at the
top."


He does not have a single
regret about spending all those
hours in making the Beach a bet-
ter place for the mini-residents.
His dedication to his daughter
and to hundreds of other young-
sters makes Gordon outstanding.
He doesn't quite agree. He thinks
he's just doing what he is sup-
posed to do.

Business Great For Some


- Ho Hum For Others


Business was good for
most Beach establishments,
over Memorial Day weekend,
according to Sandy Johnston,
executive director of the
Pensacola Beach Chamber of
Commerce. Sandy told Cham-
ber members at their regular
meeting, Tuesday, May 30 that
the businesses she polled said
they had a good weekend. Ho-
tels were filled Saturday night


and there were few vacancies
on the Friday and Sunday
nights of the holiday according
to Sandy. Businesses such as
the Market on the Island and
Surf Side Food Store reported
high volume days while some
businesses said they had aver-
age or below average sales over
the weekend. Jeff Elbert, co-
owner of Island Style said Me-
morial Day weekend was the


best the store had experienced
since Ivan.
Beach businesses are now
looking forward to a summer
and fall filled with activity. July
fourth and Blue Angels perfor-
mances, July 13 through 15 al-
ways draw records crowds to
the Beach. The Harry Gowens
Memorial Back to School Party
will be August 18 at 5 p.m. at
Flounder's. The party will be a


fundraiser for the school,
which was founded by Harry.
Flounder's will donate the food.
This year, the large color
Pensacola Beach Directory will
be replaced with a full color
broadsheet newspaper format,
according to Sandy. The news-
paper format allows for up-
dated reprints to be distributed
in the late summer and fall.
Sandy also announced that a

Staffing Pensacola Beach
Elementary School for the up-
coming year was the primary
item on the agenda of the board

ing, three positions remained
unfilled, Office Manager, Music

"Although I do not agree with the
decision reached, she wrote, "I
do want to thank the parents and
staff for the 24 years I spent
working at the Beach School."
Mrs. Wright has accepted a po-
sition in an Escambia County
School.
The Board elected Dan
Green, president; Vernon
Niven, vice president; Marilyn
Sundstrom, secretary; and
Chris Bayer, treasurer.

who were willing to continue
serving were Reed Dunne, Su-


san Goff, Debbie Campanella,
Todd McCurdy and Jeff Gill.
Treasurer Chris Bayer
announced that the Finance
Committee reported that
year-to-date expectancies
were ahead of budget because
of donations and high stu-
dent head count. The pro-
jected budget for next year is
based on an assumption of
110 students and $40,000 in
donations. School begins Au-
gust 2.

Board will be Monday, June
26 at 6 p.m.

Barefoot


My macho husband is turn-
ing into a desperate housewife.
When Frank and I were first
married, almost elevenyears ago,
his signature culinary accom-
plishment was assembling a pea-
nut butter and jelly sandwich.
Now, he has decided he wants to
cook.
He first encroached on my
kitchen territory by preparing
breakfast. He decided to surprise
me with his expertise at pouring
cereal out of a box, covering it
with blueberries, filling the or-
ange juice glasses, and brewing
coffee. Breakfast was his first
cooking adventure.
A little while ago, I noticed
that he was sitting in the kitchen
watching me make our salad for
lunch. He's a quick study. It
wasn't anytime before he was
hauling salad ingredients out of
the refrigerator, and putting them
all together. Not only had he fig-
ured out how to duplicate my
salad, but he added his own gour-
met touch. A slice of pineapple
with a dollop of cottage cheese.
He pops a couple of English muf-
fins in the toaster, confident that
they will not bum, fills the water
glasses and invites me to lunch.
I must admit that although he is
the breakfast chef everyday, he's
sort of a spasmodic lunch cook.
And that's o.k. I can always
fill in for him.
There are some areas where
Frank is still deficient. He has
never cooked anything on the top


on


of the stove. So, he sneaks out of
that problem by buying numer-
ous boxes of chicken, rice, and
vegetables, all of which have a
message on the side: "Microwave
Directions." He is becoming the
master of the microwave, and I
am the one sitting at the kitchen
table watching hm. He under-
stands all the intricacies of the
microwave, even how to cook on
half high, and how to reset the
clock. What I mostly know is
"express on high." But, then I do
know how to cook on the top of
the stove.
My desperate housewife
husband has figured out the
oven. Sort of. He canbake a fro-
zen pizza, slice it, and serve it,
all bubbly and hot. Beyond that,
the oven remains a mystery to
him.
Fish cooking is not only
mysterious to Frank, it is also an
abomination. He absolutely can-
not tolerate the smell of frying,
baking, grilling or sauteeing a
fish filet. However, he has had
an electric outlet installed on the
balcony, so we can take the
George Foreman grill outside,
and prepare fish without offend-
ing his olfactory sense.
Speaking of outdoor cook-
ing, Frank is not the kind of guy
who fires up the grill on week-
ends. He wants to be a more sub-
stantial, every day kind of cook.
Some day, he could be known as
the Emeril of Ariola Drive.
I'm not really sure how I

the


By Jane Waters Cooper
found myself married to a cook-
ing man. I should have seen it
coming. He has never had a prob-
lem with grocery shopping, do-
ing laundry (as long as he doesn't
have to put it away), or sweep-
ing the sand out of the front hall-
way.
Sometimes, I think Frank's
unlikely interest in cooking is a
matter of self defense. Like there


Beach


might come a time when he lit-
erally would starve to death be-
cause I might retreat into my "I
really hate cooking" syndrome
and never come out.
Every household needs a
desperate housewife. In our case,
it's getting to be a toss up about
which one fits the description. All
I know is that Frank has heard


*)"


me say, "I hate cooking" often
enough to prepare himself for the
worst.
So, I am just fine with
Frank's excursions in the kitchen.
Just as long as there is no trade
off. If I hate cooking, I really de-
spise carrying out the garbage or
blowing sand off the driveway.
That's man's work.


Leading the ladies of the Pensacola Beach Woman's Club will be the newly elected executive board. Members
are front row (L to R) Kathy Christoff, treasurer; Chrissy Cook, president, and Jane McGrath, first vice-president.
Standing are (L to R): Carol Stark, secretary and Beverly Dufrechou, second vice-president. The Board will be

TO NASTY JOHN
Thank you for the beautiful
bouquet of roses and daisies.
Those flowers really made my
weekend. Love from You-Know-
Who.
BLUES THERAPY
Jason Edwards drowned out
any worries he might have had
about a Wednesday surgical pro-
cedure when he and his wife,
Leah, attended last Tuesday
night's Blue on the Beach. Jason
is fine and recovering at his Gulf
Breeze home.

IT'S A DATE
A Beach group of rockers

Cook.

NAVARRE, WHERE?
The Reverend Chuck and
Helen Randle are on vacation and
have spent time visiting relatives

FIFTY IS GOLDEN

their married years, which now
number fifty. Most of the Kerry

late mom and dad at an Golden

BACK IN THE BREEZE

from a European vacation which
included visiting some of his
former duty stations. Morrie and
Mary, and grandson Robert jetted
off to Europe a few weeks ago, but
are back home for the summer.

BAHAMIAN CADENCE
Residents of the Bahamas
march to a slower drum than
Pensacola Beach dwellers, accord-
ing to Glen Windham who has just
returned from a trip to the Grand
Turks. They are still recovering
from a hurricane which hit them
more than a decade ago, so Glen
feels Beach people are lucky to
have accomplished so much in a
relatively short time.

WEEKEND IN PARADISE
Patti and Rick VerMehren
and Ella Hess were among the
lucky visitors to the Beach over
Memorial Day Weekend. They
had a whole house to themselves
on Ariola Drive.

NELLIE IS HOMESICK
Nellie Bryan, a Pensacola
Beach resident for more than 30
years has lived in Columbus, Mis-
sissippi since Ivan, and is not sure

Kamphuis, has helped Nellie by
bringing the Beach to her
through a gift subscription to Is-
land Times.

Anderson's thirteen-year-old
grandson, is proud to report that

mother. Currin returned recently
from a vacation at Lake Tahoe.

I hope everyone had a won-
derful Memorial Day! I sure did
- although I only left the comfort
of my RV sofa for necessities.
With the door open, I had a beau-
tiful view of my new house in
progress. So, Ijust sat there and
"bonded" with our new home and
thought of all the memories from
the old one and the possibilities
of creating more in our little
'round brown house'. I literally
could not tear myself away!
Eventhough, there were
other things available, Sam and
Ron's traditional party, and calls
from Paulette begging me to
come to her house, I couldn't
move. Now, we know that Queen
Shugahjust loves to see her name
in the paper, I know that she also
loves me and wanted to see me,
but I couldn't move. Even with
Jeff Goudey cooking ribs and all
the wonderful food they were
having, I couldn't move. I was
trapped (willingly) in memories.
I thought of the veterans, the
ones now gone and the ones still
here. What brave young men
they were going off to War. I
called my brother to tell him I
was thinking of him and I love
him. I thought of the things my
husband, Bill has been through
during and since Viet Nam and I
though a lot about my Dad, Hoke
Harris. He served in WWII and
has been gone from us since July
22, 1994. I find myself thinking
of him more often since I lost my
Mother. He was a very hard-
working man. He only went to
school through the third grade He
had to quit school in order to
work and help provide for his
family. Can you imagine send-
ing your third grader off to work?
But they did what they had to in
order to survive, as do young men
going to war and good Dads.


My Dad taught me that work
was what he had to do, but his
family was his joy in life. He al-
ways had time for us, even after
a long, hard day of operating
heavy equipment. Sometimes, he
would drive a piece of equipment
home, but no matter what he was
driving, we would wait and
watch for him. We lived at the
bottom of a hill, so you could see
him when he topped the hill and
we would run screaming to the
end of our driveway. We would
jump up and down with pure joy
and he would stop whatever he
was driving and pick us up to
drive down the driveway. I know
this may not sound like much ex-
citement to others, but we lived
in the country and being lifted up
in the front loader of a back-hoe
was exciting!
I was so small then (only 4
or 5) that I could barely see over
the top and it seemed like we
could touch the sky! He would
be laughing and just as excited
to see us as we were to see him.
He and Mom were loving and
caring, family people.
Papa taught us that we could
touch the sky and accomplish any
goal we set for ourselves. He
could add and subtract figures in
his head, faster than anyone with
a calculator. He was the super-
visor of both jobs that he held
during my childhood. But, best
of all, he taught us to love and
protect each other and, that fam-
ily stuck together.
I thought we were rich, un-
til I began school and saw how
other people lived. They might
have had money, but we had each
other! He taught us that there's
more to life than money. Every
weekend was spent with a fam-
ily trip somewhere didn't even
matter where, we were together

and that's what counted. I don't
have room to really tell you all
the things he taught us, but be-
lief in God, family and our Coun-
try were the top of the list.
Ijust want you Dads to know
that what your children will re-
member is the time spent with
them and the love you give, not
what great achievements you
may accomplish. For my Dad,
his children were his greatest
achievements in life. That he
managed to feed, cloth and pro-
vide a home (that he built with
help from my uncles) for his wife
and five children, and show us
his love by spending his time
with us, is his legacy.
And standing on the deck of
our new home (which we will
share with our families) makes
me feel, again, like I can touch
the sky. And, when we move in
we will be, once again, "those
rich people that live on the Is-
land".
We are rich in love, family
and friends. These are much
more valuable than mere dollars
will ever be. So, to my Dad,
thank you. To my husband, Bill,
I thank you. I hope Dad's every-


where have a safe and happy
Father's Day and remember the
next time your child wants your
time or attention, it's you they
want...
And, before I forget, a be-
lated Happy Mother's Day to Deb
Friedman,who was also at
Paulette's for Mother's Day cel-
ebration.
This recipe is super and can
be cooked and frozen in indi-
vidual servings (for hot dogs,
omelets, etc.), then thawed and
heated in microwave. We used
this at the Sand Dollar Caf6, so I
had to decrease the ingredients.
Okay, let's cook.

One of the factors to consider when
evaluating a wine is the length of its
aftertaste, or "finish." Finish refers to
the amount of time that the flavor of
the wine lingers in your nose and
mouth after you have swallowed it.
If a wine is of fine quality, it can lin-
ger for 30 to 60 seconds or more.
Indeed, some of the truly great wines
scarcely seem to diminish until they
are overwhelmed by a bite of
cheese. Conversely, a "short" wine
will be nothing more than a memory
after it is swallowed. Such may be
the case with dilute wines. As with
people, the wine that makes the
longest impression is bound to be the
most memorable.
HINT: When you swirl a wine in your
glass, check to see how long it lin-
gers on the side of the bowl. This is
an indication of a wine's "legs."
If you are looking for a wine with
great aftertaste, or finish, come to
Beach Wines and Liquors, Inc. We
can offer you tips and advice on how
to properly test wine. If you are in-
terested in learning more about wine,
and wine tasting techniques, come
see us. We are wine experts, and
are happy to help our community pur-
sue great wine. Questions? Call 850-

T7 LZZARD'5 TONGUE
by E.K. Hewson


This Fathers' Day, I have a
sneaky feeling that my husband,
Harry, is trying to earn the title
"Father of the Year," at least in
our son's eyes. He is avery quick
study as he watched me be
skewered and then grilled by Har,
our one and only child, this past
Mothers' Day. I made the fatal
parental mistake of grounding
Har the week before I was to be
revered and honored as the
World's Greatest Mom.
First, Har informed me
that Mother's Day was not just
my day, but a very special day
for all the mothers in the world.
I sheepishly agreed, all the time
thinking of a few mothers I
would like to permanently ship
him off to, some of which I've
met in the Commissary and
also carry the title of Marine
Drill Sergeant.
Then came the Monday
morning classroom assignment
which was sent home in the
weekly Tuesday folder. Write a
one-hundred word essay about
how you spent Mother's Day.


Bailey Rinke

Dances Her

Way to School

Ballet Pensacola Company
dancer, thirteen-year-old Bailey
Rinke, has been selected to attend
the International Ballet School in
Jackson, Mississippi this sum-
mer.
The International Ballet
School provides an opportunity
for intermediate and advanced
students to study with some of the
world's leading teachers and to
attend performances of the USA
International Ballet Competition.
The event is held every four
years. Dancers from 26 states and
six countries studied with eleven
of the world's leading dance
teachers in the last session, in
2002.
Bailey, performed the lead-
ing role of Clara in the Ballet
Pensacola performance of the
Nutcracker in 2005.
Bailey is the daughter of
Abby and Robert Rinke of
Pensacola Beach.

way out on the web
www.MylslandTimes.com


After Big Harry had spent weeks
planning the ideal celebration for
me, Har summed up the event
like the following:
"Mother's Day was the
worst day of my life. My parents
made me go sailing and then we
ate lunch at a fancy restaurant on
the water. Later, we went for a
family bike ride. The day was
totally boring. The only good
thing was I got to play Legos with
my friends, James and Johnny."
Thus, Big Harry is now care-
fully planning his own Father's
Day celebration, because he
knows better than to make the
same mistake twice. Due to travel
plans, he has already stated that
we will honor him on Saturday
as opposed to Sunday. How con-
venient, since he knows James
and Johnny have soccer on Sat-
urday and are not available to
play all day. Next, he has chosen
to eat at the brand new Waffle
House, only one of Har's most
favorite places to dine. He has
also called for the inaugural
Hewson Lego building contest


followed by a water balloon fight.
As Harry made this procla-
mation at the dinner table, I kept
silent. Our number one parenting
rule is to always back the other
one up and discuss any differ-
ences at a later time. Not less
than 30 seconds after Har was
asleep, I couldn't help it. I ex-
ploded. Waffle House? Lego
building contest? Water balloon
fight? Sarcastically, I threw in for
good measure, what next the ul-
timate Game Boy challenge?
Harry just smiled at my
little rant and quietly said that he
didn't want Father's Day to be
the second worst day of Har's life.
Then it dawned on me, Harry had
just revoked Har's Game Boy
privileges. I guess it's a good
thing the Marine Corps trained
him to be in the fight of his life
one minute and then perform
humanitarian duties the next, be-
cause it sure is paying off on the
fatherhood battleground.
Until next time, Happy Fa-
thers' Day...
Luv, Lizzard

W w mrSa .. ,. Kids Learn To Hang Ten At Family SurfFest


I few weeks ago I got a
chance to visit the Pensacola
Beach School and talk to Sandee
Bredesen's first grade class. She
had me come out and teach the
class about rip currents and
weather on the beach.
This was my first time to
visit the Beach School. We all
gathered on the shoreline, sat in
the sand and discussed every-
thing from surfing to hurricanes.
Let me say this, I've never
been more impressed. These kids
were smart, polite and down
right inquisitive. I asked if any-
one had questions, and boy, did
they.
They wanted to know every-
thing from what causes the surf,
to where our white sand came
from. Wow, what a day. There I
was, a 50-year-old surfer, with a
bunch of six and seven-year-olds
asking me questions. At first I
was scared to death - that soon
changed to amazement.
All those kids and old Espo,
just hanging on the Beach and
sharing stories.
Hey, I've surfed giant waves,
been in hurricanes and faced con-
stant drowning, but nothing was
scarier than this. These kids are
smart!


My wife, Heidi, also goes
to the School to help some of the
kids with reading. She has never
been the same. She can't wait for
that one day a week to spend time
with the kids.
I consider us very lucky to
have had time with the children
and staff of the Beach School,
and advise everyone to give it a
try.
Call the School before next
year and see if you, too, can help
in some way. Believe me, you'll
feel great and get hooked like I
did.
I must say this about the
Beach School teachers and staff
who make it happen, we are all
so lucky to have them. They re-
ally care about the kids and their
community. They treat these kids
with love and respect and teach
them well.
Trust me, when school starts
next year I will be there, but I
had better study.
This year the Surfer's Me-
morial presented the Beach
School with a $2000 check. This
school needs our help, so look
into it and call the school!
Remember, these children
are our future and it looks like
we're in good hands.


READY TO RIP Hunter Harris, 8, (left) looks for a little more instruc-
tion on how to paddle his surfboard out into the waves at the Family Surf
Fest on Pensacola Beach, May 27. Big sister Haley thinks it's just too easy.
After all, Haley is eleven-years-old and has informed her parents, Sean and
Susan Harris of Gulf Breeze that she is going to own a surf shop called
Water Girls when she is older. The surf lessons, which were taught by Sean
Fell of Waterboyz Surf Shop in Pensacola, were part of the day long festi-
val sponsored by the Christian Surfers and local surf shops. Sponsors
provided food, surf instruction and free music all day. Both Hunter and
Haley were surfers by the end of the day.


Summer Surf Camp


Swells In Popularity


Yancey Spencer, IV, has
been surfing since he was
three-years-old, so he is well
qualified as the head instruc-
tor at Innerlight's Summer
Surfing Camp for beginners.
Yancey, who began competing
at the age of eleven, will teach
for the fourth year this summer.
Summer Surf Camp con-
sists of ten week-long sessions,


which fill up very quickly, ac-
cording to the sponsors.
Young surfers learn the ba-
sics of surfing in a fun filled
atmosphere at the summer
camp. The ratio of students to
teacher si 1 to 5, and parents
are welcome to stay and watch
surf camp, but they are not ob-
ligated to do so.
For more information, call
Innerlight at 932-5134.

I MAKE A DIFFERENCE TAKE A KID FISHING I


'p


Sby
Pete
Della Ratta

A Day to

Remember
When the day comes to
pass the tradition of fishing on
to the next generation, one must
consider what to say to keep the
interests going. What do you say
and when do you say it? A great
time for this is between Mother's
Day, Memorial Day, and Father's
Day. What stories could be
greater to tell our children than
sharing memories about the men
and women who fought and are
still fighting for our freedom or
the stories of Mom and Dad and
the first time they caught their
first fish?
It doesn't matter if they are
catching their first Bass, Pinfish,
or anything else. What matters
is that it lights up their face when
that all important first catch
comes out of the water. This
priceless moment comes to mind
and hopefully, it will last a life-
time in that child's memory.
Then they can pass it on to the
next generation.
I think the best information
we can pass on is how the past
made us the person we are today.
Any fishing report can be
wrong on any given day. But, if
you are having a good time with
the person you are with or even
if you're fishing alone, then the
day has been a success. The fish
that got away will always be there
the next time. Just make sure
there is a next time. If you know
someone who has never been
fishing, go out of your way to
invite them along and you might
teach someone a lifelong skill
which they will utilize in the fu-
ture. So here's a thank you to
all the veterans of past and
present. Thank you for all you
