Volume II, Number 10 Pensacola Beach, Florida September 13, 2006


Escambia County deputies assigned to Pensacola Beach work year round to keep the peace on the Island. At left is Lt. Bob Clark, who has been the officer-in-charge
of the Pensacola Beach substation for seven years. Some members of his staff and the length of time they have been assigned to the Beach are (L to R): Senior Deputy Peter
Kaston, 9 years; Master Deputy Ron Sanders, 6 years; Senior Deputy Bain Matthews, 17 years and Deputy Tim Ruble, 4 months. Story, page 2.







Sheriff's Finest Protect Pensacola Beach


Summer's end may mean the
Escambia County deputies, sta-
tioned on Pensacola Beach, will
find their jobs a little less de-
manding. Fewer visitors to the
Island mean less traffic tie-ups,
fewer alcohol related incidents
and not so many scuffles and
fights. The Pensacola Beach
Escambia County Sheriffs sub
station has been staffed since
1968 when Louie Davis was the
first deputy to serve. Chester
Mooney was also in that early law
enforcement group, according to
Lt. Bob Clark, current officer-in-
charge of the sub station. The
original sub station was a small
building with one holding cell,
located adjacent to Casino Beach.
The new modem building was
completed in the 1990s.
"It has always been, and still
is, the goal of the deputies to pro-
tect the rights of each and every
citizen," Lt. Clark said.
Lt. Clark has been with the
Escambia County Sheriffs De-


Pensacola Beach Elementary
School students will have a cool,
new bus ride. The School Gov-
erning Board passed a motion to
purchase a 2007 model with a
2006 engine for $72,600 at their
meeting on Monday, August 28.
The new bus will have air condi-
tioning, seat belts and can carry
65 passengers.
The sixteen-year-old bus the
school owns breaks down on a
regular basis, and there has been
a need for a new bus for several
years. Funds raised in the amount
of $19,500 are dedicated to the
school bus purchase, plus the
$14,000 raised at the Harry
Gowens Memorial and a payment
of $31,500 from the state as com-
pensation for the Katrina evacu-
ees who attended PBES.
Jeff Castleberry, principal
presented the School Improve-
ment Plan for Board approval.
High goals in reading, math and
writing, based on prior FCAT
scores, were set along with new
goals covering learning progress
in science. Other goals include
increasing the number of volun-
teers who assist the school, in-
creased school safety programs,
and upgrading technological ca-
pabilities. Finally, there shouldbe
an increase in communication


apartment since 1974 and has
served seven years on the Beach.
"I never asked for a special
assignment in my career," Lt.
Clark said. "I always liked where
I have been." He did say that he
thought the Sheriff, Ron
McNesby, a former beach
deputy-in-charge, would agree,
that of all the areas they serve,
time served on Pensacola Beach
brings back good and fond
memories.
Serving on Pensacola Beach
is challenging in many ways ac-
cording to Clark who says that
most deputies have a real sense
of the beach as a place where
people go to party.
"Most of our calls are D&S,"
Clark says, "Drunk and stupid.
These calls, alcohol related, come
mostly from the core area."
"As the Beach population
grows there are different needs,"
Clark says.
Although most of their calls
still come from the core area,


between the school, parents and
the community.
The large enrollment in the
Kindergarten class this year has
inspired teachers, Jennifer Neal
and Susan Goff to begin a Buddy
Program. Fourth graders will
team up with kindergartners and
assist them at lunch time.
Board president Dan Green
commented on the idea, saying
the Beach School builds great
camaraderie among the students.
Debbie Campanella, in her
teacher's report, said the students
are already showing increased
skills because of the use of edu-
cation based computer programs.
"Just in this short time, stu-
dents are already showing signs
of learning gains," she said.
Reporting on hurricane pre-
paredness, Todd McCurdy an-
nounced that the storm window
coverings would be installed by
September 2, and the stainless
steel screens will be left in place.
And, in the worst case scenario,
the First Baptist Church of Gulf
Breeze has sent the comforting
message that PBES is welcome
back to their church anytime.
PBES, Inc. board meetings
are open to the public. The next
meeting will be September 25 at
6 p.m. at the school.


deputies cruise Beach neighbor-
hood streets, which gives resi-
dents a sense of security, know-
ing they will get a quick response
if they ever need to call for help.
Lately, Pensacola residents
have written letters to the PNJ,
criticizing Beach deputies, saying
they hang out at Bamboo Willie's
instead of performing their as-
signed tasks. Actually, those
deputies you see at Bamboo
Willie's and other high traffic ar-
eas are off duty and have been
hired as security for popular
Beach establishments.
The only time you will now
see a Beach deputy just "hang-


The Santa Rosa Island Au-
thority has decided two years is a
long enough time for leaseholders
to have cleaned up and to start re-
building their properties. The Au-
thority, at their committee meet-
ings last Wednesday, noted that
letters had been sent to some lease-
holders, placing their leaseholds in
default.
Extensions have been granted
to several individuals in response
to requests, but the SRIA wants
leaseholders to make extension
requests in good faith, and at least,
clean up the debris around their
premises.
"I am concerned that should
we have another storm that all this
debris which is unsecured will
damage neighboring properties,"
Bill Griffith said. "It also gives us
an image of disrepair as visitors
drive down the street."
The SRIA wants to see clean
up begin before the Full Board
meeting on September 20. Staff
will make on site property visits
before the meeting.
Additional steps to improve
the appearance of Pensacola Beach
were taken with efforts to remove
the forty trailers which are still lo-
cated at Beach residences. The
deadline for the removal of trail-
ers is September 15. Extensions
may be granted on a case by case
basis if extenuating circumstances
are presented by occupants of the
trailers.
During a special board meet-
ing, the SRIA approved the request
of Dave Hemphill, Baskerville
Donovan Engineers, to fund the
repair to 5450 linear feet of side-
walks and six soundside dune


ing out" could be during a break
when they go to the Market to eat
banana pudding.
Lt. Clark, known for his
sense of humor, is among the
pudding eaters, and he also at-
tends meetings of the Chamber
of Commerce and the Association
of Mardi Gras Krewes. During
these meetings, Lt. Clark keeps
up to date on the events which
draw huge crowds. Anyone who
has come to the Beach for the
Krewe of Wrecks parade or on
Blue Angels Day, knows what
potential problems could be in
store for the deputies as they


walkovers. The Board approved
awarding the $164,125 contract to
Construction Details.
Hemphill also reported that he
has assessed the ten Pensacola
Beach studies which the SRIA has
acquired over the past twelve
years. He will present his compre-
hensive report at the October 4
committee meetings.
Thom Blas, Board Chairman,


monitor the crowds. Thanks to
their diligence, there have been
no serious problems or accidents
on those days when as many as
50,000 spectators line the beach
streets.
Dedicated Beach deputies
keep residents and visitors safe,
often under the most stressful
conditions. And, they conduct
themselves with understanding
and good sense, give reasonable
warnings and make unavoidable
arrests.
And the stories you hear
about the deputies hanging
around Portofino Boardwalk are
just not true. Not true at all


asked, "Do we need another
study," and, added, "Then let's take
it to the next step and implement,
actually implement, its recommen-
dations."
The SRIA Full Board meet-
ing will be September 20 a the of-
fice at 5 p.m. The meetings are
open to the public and a visitor's
forum is available for those wish
to speak.


Committee Shuns Set Enclosure Limits


One size doesn't fit all, ac-
cording to the members of the
committee studying the enclosure
regulations on Pensacola Beach.
Members voted 3 to lat their Sep-
tember 7 meeting to recommend
to the Santa Rosa Island Author-
ity that based on the many vari-
ables associated with beach
leaseholds that it is not reason-
able to establish one square foot
amount for enclosures below the
base flood elevations.
Dan Green, committee chair-
man, said, "Set as a ratio of over-
all living area, rather than an ar-
bitrary calculation ensures a fair,
relative amount of enclosure
space associated with overall
home size, storage needs, and lot
size. Enclosure restrictions
should not negatively impact


homes functionality or related
market value."
Architect Scott Holland, dis-
sented saying, "The more square
footage allowed, the more stuff
is stored. That stuff ultimately
becomes debris. We need to be
thoughtful and good neighbors in
pre-storm management of be-
longings."
Additionally, the committee
will recommend to the SRIA
Board that a group of qualified
individuals needs to be tasked to
investigate alternative designs
and construction methods for
break away walls and enclosures
below the base flood elevation.
Dan Green, committee chairman,
will present the group's conclu-
sions at the September 20 SRIA
Full Board meeting.

Barefoot on the Beach


By Jane Waters Cooper


Are the Biker Chicks a female
spin-off of the Hell's Angels?
Absolutely not. Biker chicks are
the thousands of high spirited
women who own and ride their
own motorcycles. The days when
the Harley mama rode in the back
seat are rapidly dwindling as
women have been outstripping
men in motorcycle purchases.
Biker chicks, however, are more
often known for their good deeds
than for the fact that they love
the thrill of the ride.
Locally, biker chicks come
from all walks of life and in all
sizes. Nurses, business owners,
and even newspaper editors like
Shelley Johnson of Island Times
and Biker News belong to this
growing sisterhood. The new
wave of women riders has begun
to establish its own fashion stan-
dards, doing away with black
leather and silver rivets and
studs. Shelley's Harley is pink
and her riding costume matches.
The ladies' bikes are bright red,


some are silver, others are yellow
or tangerine.
One of the biker chicks' most
memorable events of the year will
be this weekend's slumber party
on Pensacola Beach. The group
of more than 50 women will gather
at Ben's Motorcycle Repair in
Milton, ride to Doc's Southern
Cycle in Pace where they will
compete in Zany Lady Relay
races. Winners will receive spe-
cially designed bandanas, bear-
ing the Zany Lady logo. After
a lunch stop, the ladies then
head for Pensacola Beach where
they will check in at their head-
quarters, the Paradise Inn.
Since there are no hard and fast
rules, the bikers will scatter all
over the Island, shopping,
dancing, sunning and livening
up the local bistros. However,
they are all expected to recon-
vene at Paradise in their paja-
mas for the 8 p.m. coronation
of the Biker Chick Queen, a new
ceremony this year.


After the Queen gets
crowned, the Chicks will prepare
for their final event of the day, the
Pajama Promenade to the Islander
Lounge where they will take over
the Cypress Bar. Spectators are
welcome to watch the promenade
as the lady bikers show off their
nighttime finery.
This weekend will be dedi-
cated to fun, but almost every
other organized ride is a charity
event for the area women who
ride. They are often asked to
contribute funds for causes,
and they always honor the
many requests which come in
every week.
Some biker chicks are also
activists. Chicks from all over the
State of Florida join their male
counterparts on a ride to the capi-
tol in Tallahassee once each year.
As members of American Bikers
Aimed Toward Education
(ABATE), Florida riders bring
their concerns to their respective
legislative delegations. Each

year, Northwest Florida Repre-
sentatives Holly Benson and
Dave Murzin take time out to
greet the bikers and have photos
taken. Not all legislators follow
this gracious procedure.
Whenever you're driving,
and you find yourself sharing a
roadway with some biker chicks,
use extra caution. Remember, one
of those happy riders could be
your doctor, or your attorney, or


your child's school teacher.
Biker chicks perform good
deeds in the community all year
long. In return, motorists can take
special care to protect them and
all riders. No, they are in no way
like Hell's Angels, but they are real
angels in their own right, giving
time, money and special dedica-
tion to projects that make many
lives a bit easier. Go cheer them
on at the Pajama Promenade.

Pensacola Beach businesses
reported another high volume
month in July as they gave re-
ports at the business meeting of
the Chamber of Commerce onAu-
gust 29.
"July was a really great
month compared to last year,"
Sandy Johnston, Chamber execu-
tive director said. "This July 4791
visitors went through the VIC.
Last year, there was just one. His
name was Dennis."
Buck Lee, Santa Rosa Island
Authority general manager,
backed Sandy's announcement.
"The Beach is back, and we
had a great July," Buck said.
"This time next year you will see
a completed road improvement
project and new condos. There
will be great business."
Another VIP, State Repre-


sentative Dave Murzin, also at-
tended the meeting to greet mem-
bers and catch up on Beach ac-
tivity. Dave is running unop-
posed for the legislative seat this
year. Pensacola Beach is in his
district.
Meg Peltier, executive direc-
tor of the Gulf Breeze Chamber of
Commerce was another guest in
attendance. She announced that
the October 20 Gulf Breeze Cham-
ber Golf Tournament will be fol-
lowed by a Beach Bash at Bam-
boo Willie's. The party is open to
everyone.
"I am here today to tell you
that I am actively promoting
Beach business," Meg said. "We
are always happy to share infor-
mation with our Chamber's visi-
tors about the Beach and what's
happening here."

Emails poured in early with
answers to the last trivia ques-
tion which was "Along about
this time of the year, for a long
time, the Beach's premier event,

history, only three women took
top honors. Can you name one

The correct answer was
any one of the following: Nini
Baird in 1980; Jane Waters Coo-
per, 1995, both Beach Bums of
the Year. Judy LeBum L'Oignon
was named the Beach Bum of
the Century in 2000.
Leroy Cardenas sent the
first correct answer naming Nini
and Jane, but he stumbled on
the third one answering Jayne
Drees. Close on his heels for
second place was Larry Keever
who named Nini, and minutes
later, third place, Melanie Waite,

I hope everyone had a safe
and wonderful Labor Day holi-
day. I was able to spend some
quality time with my sisters,
Brenda, Gail and Sharon in Geor-
gia, along with a multitude of other
family members. The new baby
boy, Ashton (Gail's latest grand-
son) is beautiful and healthy. He's
also lucky to have been born into
our family, because my mother al-
ways believed in (and insisted on)
family closeness. We, of course,
will continue to pass that tradi-
tion on to our children and grand-
children.
We have grandchildren from
age 15 down to brand-new. There
are thirty-five, I believe, at last
count (it's kinda hard to count
when they're all buzzing around
like butterflies).
Anyway, we have large fami-
lies, including Bill's relatives. So,
when we finally (and we will) get
into our new home, we will have
to set ground rules for visitation.
I spent the entire day last
week with my dear friend, Chris-
tine (Bunky) Hewerdine in Gulf
Breeze. She has a lovely pool in
her back yard and we call it
"Christine's Island."
Christine also comes from a
large family and they all come to
stay with her forvarious holidays
- like Labor Day! I do not know
how she can manage anything
with that many people in her
house at once. And, did I forget
to mention that they also bring
their dogs? So, with her new
granddaughter plus five dogs it
was a house-full!
I would be found eventually
babbling under the kitchen table,
but somehow, she manages.
Speaking of groups of
people, did anybody see the wild
women (or men) who mowed
down Chuck Steele's mailbox?
Apparently, it happened the night


ieas, porribse

of the Harry Gowens Memorial. I
guess Mr. Harry was truly with
us that night and created quite a
bit of mischief, for which he had
always been known. I feel sure
that whoever did this would
apologize, if only they could re-
member.
Oh well, this week's recipe
comes from Peggy Henshell, who
is a member of the Mystic Krewe
of Nerieds. In honor of several
returning guests, they have re-
named the Wednesday Night So-
cial Committee Meeting to Men-
tal Health Night.
Now, I attend those Wednes-
day night meetings, but I am not
a Neried. I have been anointed
as the original "Love Lady" of the
Nerieds. That's because I love
them all.
This is a very good recipe
that Peggy served at the Nereids
Splash Party. I know you will en-
joy it. With the heat we've had,
even the name sounds wonder-
ful! And, it's another no-cook
recipe. Okay, let's head to the
kitchen and NOT cook....

Cherries in the Snow

1 Angel food cake
8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
4oz. sour cream
/2 cup sugar
1 Pkg. Dreamwhip (or
coolwhip)
1 Can Cherry Pie Filling

Tear up Angel Food Cake up
to tightly fit the bottom of a cas-
serole dish. Mix together cream
cheese, sour cream and sugar.
Pour mixture over the Angel Food
Cake. Mix the package of
Dreamwhip and pour over the
cream cheese mixture. Top with
can of cherry pie filling and chill.
Enjoy, and I'll see you in the
kitchen....


AMERICA'S NATIVE SPIRIT


Kicking off a new school year in the hottest high school fashions
is important to these Pensacola Beach teenagers, so they presented
a soundside fashion show last month to showcase the latest in
back-to-campus looks. Modeling the hip leggings and shorts combo
is Sandy Spraggins. Sporting the classic denim and decorated cap
sleeve tee is Haley Curie. Oceane Ziegler, kneeling, shines in a
bright red dress with a cropped top jacket.

Jennifer Bennett made sure she looked cool and comfortable
at the fashion show. Jennifer is just chillin in knee length denims
topped with a bright yellow top which can be campus casual or
weekend beach party wear.


The history of bourbon largely coincides
with the history of this country. About the
time of the American Revolution, pioneers
in Bourbon County in northern Kentucky
began fermenting a mash of corn, malt and
rye that gave rise to a new whiskey-bour-
bon. ThisAmerican bred whiskey became
so popular that in 1964, anAct of Congress
gave bourbon a legal definition requiring a
minimum of 51 percent corn-grain content
and bestowed it with the honorary title of
America's Native Spirit. Compared with
its European counterparts, the whiskey
remained rawand unrefined until the 1980s,
when it began to achieve international rec-
ognition due to increased quality and com-
plexity. Today, a wide range of bourbons is
available.

HINT: Single barrel bourbons spend their
entire aging life (8-12 years) in one barrel,
which lends each vintage unique charac-
teristics.
We have bourbons in all price ranges and
many different vintages. At BEACH
WINES & LIQUORS, INC., we feature
only the finest wines and spirits. Come
see whatwe have to offer! We are proud to
serve our community. If you ever have
any questions, regarding wine or spirits,

LUCKY THIRTEEN
For the past seven years,
September 13 has been deemed
Defy Superstition Day. Did you
know that many hotels do not
have a thirteenth floor or a room
number 13? It's all because
people are superstitious about
this number. However, residents
are in luck. Paradise Inn and
Springhill Suites have locals
specials for September. Cel-
ebrate Defy Superstition Day
with a night on the Beach.

FLOAT IN, MATEY
Full steam ahead to the ma-
rina behind PegLeg Pete's on Ft.
Pickens Road. Located in the
still waters of Lafitte Cove, it is
the perfect place to slip your
boat, for the evening or a long
weekend. Keep a lookout in the
crow's nest for the resident pi-
rate, Pete.

CREATIVE MONEY
According to AmSouth
mortgage loan officer Sandy
Franz, lending packages are
available in more variety and
options than before. Creating a
mortgage that is customized for
her clients is her specialty.
When purchasing your piece of
the beach, think about Sandy.

COLORS OF FALL
Bob Temple at Beach
Wines and Liquors says his
Peju Merlot is described as


bright red in color with aromas
of red currant, vanilla, clove,
raspberry, bing cherry, and
freshly crushed sage. Get your
bottle before the first day of fall,
September 23. Perfect for foot-
ball and fun.

GAS UP BEFORE YOU GO
The only fuel stop on the
island is at the Surf Side Food
Store. Convenience and com-
petitive prices right on Via de
Luna. Top off your tank or stop
and shop before heading off
the Beach.

NO NORTH WINDS
Bob West, SRIA Public
Safety manager reports that the
north winds haven't kicked up,
so the usual airborne guests,
biting flies, haven't arrived yet
on the Beach. Warm Gulf water
and slightly cooler air temps -
just another day in Paradise ac-
cording to Bob.

The sound of rumbling en-
gines will fill The Islander
Lounge's Via de Luna parking lot
at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September
16, but you can erase the image
of burly leather-clad bikers from
your mind. These motorcycle
mavens are biker chicks and will
arrive on Pensacola Beach after a
long day of riding. The Islander
is first stop for the Biker Chick


Slumber Party with a ceremonial
toast and induction into a not-
yet-revealed-to-the-public soci-
ety.
"We love having the ladies
party at The Islander," said Kevin
Rudski, owner. "They certainly
know how to have fun. But don't
ask me to tell their secrets."
There are no secret activities
for the rest of the weekend, so


men are welcome to party, too.
The Paradise Inn on
Pensacola Beach is the host ho-
tel for the Slumber Party.
"After checking in, we park
our bikes and begin to party. Ev-
eryone is welcome to join us,"

Mf Cross in the Sand
By
Dr. Chuck Randle
Pastor
Pensacola Beach Community Church


One of the many things I
enjoy about the beach commu-
nity is the laid back atmosphere.
Residents and visitors can go
to restaurants and activities
dressed very casually or more
formal and no one really cares.
The same is true of our Beach
Church. Worshipers in shorts,
cut-offs, sandals, sit and wor-
ship next to those who are more
comfortable with a suit and tie,
or in dresses. No one really
cares what the other person
wears. I came across an article
by Christine Iverson, entitled
"Flip Flops" that I thought very
interesting.
Today I came to church
wearing flip flops. I wasn't wear-
ing a suit, or a fancy hat with a
bow.
At first, I felt uncomfort-


able. Maybe God wouldn't like
it. It might be upsetting. And
then I thought, would God re-
ally get upset because I wore
jeans or anything else?
Is that what bothers God?
Then I remembered: unkind
words, cussing, the fit I threw in
the car, my impatience in line (did
it really matter that I had to wait?)
People are hungry, inno-
cents are dying because of
bombs they cannot control. I
turned off the news.
I couldn't be bothered.
I came to church today,
wearing my flip flops. I was re-
minded that God adopted me in
baptism. God loves me -just the
way I am.
Now it's my turn to share
that love. God knows how much
we need it.


Beach Churches Celebrate Rebuilding Efforts


Our Lady ofAssumption
Catholic Mission Helps With
Habitat for Humanity Home

Betty Salter, executive direc-
tor of Pensacola Habitat for Hu-
manity, will speak at Our Lady of
the Assumption, Pensacola
Beach on September 17, the des-
ignated international day of
prayer at the 9:45 a.m. Mass.
"This is a wonderful oppor-
tunity for us to remember those
in need," said Bev Ishol, who has
been the Habitat for Humanity co-
ordinator at Our Lady for five
years. "Those who volunteer,
whether financially or on the site,
always receive as much grace as
the family who moves into the
house."
"The International Day of
Prayer and Action for Human
Habitat, observed on the third
Sunday in September, is a time
when the entire Habitat for Hu-
manity community is urged to
pray for those in need of shelter",
says the Habitat web site.

St. Ann Catholic Chuch in
Gulf Breeze along with Our Lady
on Pensacola Beach will begin
their tenth Habitat for Human-
ity house built by the two con-
gregations at 8 a.m., Saturday,
October 7. The house is at 5833
Congress Street in Gulf Breeze.
Parish Ministries and individu-
als will help provide breakfast
and lunch items on the work
days for volunteers working on
the home.
"This is the first year the
churches have done two
houses in one year," Ishol said.
Work begins with ground
breaking and framing October
7, and continues the following
two Saturdays, October 14
(trusses and decking) and Oc-
tober 21 (roofing). All adults are
invited to help work on the
home.
"To celebrate Habitat for
Humanity's 25 years, Habitat
for Humanity of Pensacola is
asking 25 churches to donate
$1,000 each to build a house in
Pensacola. St. Ann Catholic
Church and Our Lady of the As-
sumption Mission are partici-
pating in this effort, as well,"
Ishol said.
For more information or to
volunteer, please call 850-932-
2859.


Pensacola Beach Community
Church Dedicates Church
House
Hurricane Ivan devastated
many buildings on our beach,
as well as our two churches. On
Sunday, September 17, the
Pensacola Beach Community
Church will have a special ser-
vice of dedication and rededi-
cation of the recently reno-
vated Beach Church House and
the restoration of the church
sanctuary.
The sanctuary was com-
pletely taken apart, walls, ceil-
ings and all, and carefully re-
stored to the way it was before
Hurricane Ivan.
The Fellowship Hall had to
be demolished. With no place
for the Sunday school program,
other programs of the Church,
and offices, the house on the
northwest corner of the prop-
erty was purchased and con-
verted to offices, a meeting room,
and rooms for Sunday school
classes, until the new fellowship
hall is built.
Members and friends are in-
vited to share in the service of
celebration. Following the ser-
vice, a potluck dinner will take
place under the tent next to the
Beach Church House.

Okay. Well here we are. We
made it through the summer, so
far, with little action in the trop-
ics, a new four lane road under
construction and what some say
is a great year!
It seems that Pensacola
Beach has come back, with new
life and attitude.
Is that really the case? What
is in store for out tiny beach com-
munity?
Well, let's look around our
old beach.
As a long time local, even I
can't recognize parts of the beach.
There new houses that are forty
feet high. There are new condos
that are 18 stories high and people
have never seen before.
Everything is for sale or rent,
but no-one is buying or renting.
You see, locals have been
through way too many changes


the Turners, who are just now
getting their pilings after two
years. They have been at that lo-
cation since the 50's. Do they
want a new house? Well yes, but
I think they would rather have
their old one back! All the memo-
ries and all the old pictures are
gone.
Or take our great local Gary
Cole. Hey, what a cool green
house, Gary. Brand new. You
know, I have a feeling Gary would
rather have his old one story
house, with all its history and
charm.
Think about it people. No
Sun Ray. No Gowens A-Frame.
No Tiki. No bath house, and no
more beach cottages.
Are thing getting better...or
just different?
Pensacola Beach had a
charm about it. That's going the

Aqua Dynamics and Aerobic


Where's the Bite


Pensacola Beach anglers are
reeling from all the hot action. I
talked to a few who were wetting
a line and here's what they had to
say.
Jerry at the Pensacola Beach
Fishing Pier said Black Snapper
were being caught on live shrimp.
The Spanish Mackerel were hit-
ting gotcha and cigar minnows or
any kind of shiny lures. They have
been seeing Reds off the end of
the Pier, but no one is pulling
them in. Pompano can be caught
on a jig. But, one dedicated an-
gler who was trying to catch
baitfish, caught two Pompano on
abare gold hook. The Pomps were
twelve to thirteen inches.
Local Realtor Clark Allen
fishes offshore in a secret loca-
tion. He will only describe it as
southwest of the Pass. Last week
he and his crew threw out lines
with live cigar minnows and
brought some healthy Red Snap-
per home for dinner. They had
their limit in one hour. Efficient
fishing.




Pete Della Ratta


A diva of dawn, Christie
Jones, advises early morning in-
shore fishermen to scout around
the grass beds in the Sound
about 5:30 inthe morning. She will
be looking for Redfish and Trout
this weekend armed with live
shrimp in her bait bucket. Christie
admits that she'll eat cheese and
peanut butter crackers and drink
cold Cokes for breakfast.
King Mackerel fishermen will
likely have stories to tell after this
weekend's Outcast King Mack-
erel Classic. Weigh in is at the
PalafoxPier, Friday, September 15
through Sunday, September 17.


Swimming courses are $60 for a
30-hour course (meets twice a
week) and $90 for a 45-hour
course (meets three times a week).
Adult swim lessons are $45 for 10
hours of instruction. A variety of
times for courses/lessons are of-
fered Monday through Friday.

Couples can snuggle up to
this advice.
Time To Re-energize
Taking the time for yourself-
and your significant other to re-
energize and rejuvenate is vitally
important to your physical health,
your emotional health and your
relationship. Taking a much
needed, deserved and necessary
rest each night will allow you to
live your hectic life fully invigo-
rated and ready to take on every-
day challenges. So, set aside
eight or nine hours for rest and
sleep.
Simple Pleasures
What could be more impor-
tant than creating a personal ha-
ven for relaxation and rest fo-
cused on the two of you? A mas-
ter suite that surrounds you with
timeless traditions and elegance,
indulging your senses, is a per-
fect solution. We live in a time
where we've all but forgotten to
take time for the simple pleasures
as we pursue our hectic lives. It
allows the two of you to "get away
from it all" and focus on re-ener-
gizing yourself and your relation-
ship on a daily basis.
A Place of Significance
We devote a great deal of
time, energy and money decorat-


ing the formal areas of our homes
- the areas that the public sees.
Since about one-third of our life
span is spent in the bedroom,
where many of the most impor-
tant decisions of your life together
are made, shouldn't more atten-
tion be focused on your sur-
roundings? This is one of the
most significant rooms in your
home. Carefully select the right
bedding and pillows, and sur-
round yourself with those things
that allow you to experience the
beauty of life. Choose paint col-
ors and decorating schemes to-
gether. Creating a custom suite


that reflects you as a couple. You
will begin to experience the qual-
ity of life that a truly rejuvenating
rest can provide, while deepen-
ing and strengthening your rela-
tionship together.
Dare To Dream
Agood night's rest will leave
you ready to face the new and
adventuresome world out there.
As a couple, you truly are worth
the effort to make your Master
Suite a restful masterpiece
For more information on the
importance of proper bedding call
me at 850.432.4777.

T LIZZ2ARD'S5 TONGUE CfA
by E.K. Hewson ..... ..ii


The past few weeks have
been tough on me ever since I
found out that Pluto is no longer
the ninth planet. I guess I've been
in spatial mourning and experi-
encing solar system sadness af-
ter the International Astronomi-
cal Union stripped Pluto of its
planetary status. According to
this prestigious international
group, celestial bodies have to
meet very strict standards before
they can become a real planet like
the ones we all studied about in
the elementary classroom. The
new rules state that in order to be
a planet, a celestial body must
orbit around the sun, have suffi-
cient mass for its self-gravity to
overcome rigid body forces so
that it assumes a nearly round
shape, and has cleared the neigh-
borhood around its orbit.
It seems to me that Pluto, the
little celestial misfit with more


than 75 years experience of hold-
ing its own with the other eight
planets, should have been
grandfathered in. I just think the
rest of the planets are a wee bit
jealous because they don't have
a famous Disney character name-
sake. And who cares if Pluto's
neighborhood is a little unkempt.
It's not like anyone is making
plans to visit it anytime soon.
Now that we know Pluto is
not a planet, then what is it? I've
heard all sorts of classifications:
dwarf planet, planette, minor
planet. I personally would like to
submit my entry -- Planet Lite, for
small solar system bodies only.
Just think of all the beer and diet
food commercials that advertis-
ing agencies could spin off of a
category like Planet Lite.
I can even envision parents
warning their kids that they bet-


ter keep their rooms clean and free
of clutter. "After all, Billy and
Suzie, look what happened to
Pluto. It got kicked out of the so-
lar system and lost its right to run
with the big 'dawgs'." Of course,
Billy and Suzie are probably try-
ing to remember if this solar sys-
tem ride was open during their last
visit to DisneyWorld and in their
minds Pluto will always keep up
with the likes of Benji, Lassie and
Rin Tin Tin.
Astronomers from all over
the world have spoken and so,
who am I to argue. Pluto is planet
non grata. I guess I will just have
to adjust the classic mnemonic of
"My Very Exceptional Mother
Just Sent Us Nine Pizzas" to "My
Very Earthy Mother Just Sent Us
Nachos." Or noodles. Or nothing.
Until next time...
Luv, Lizzard

A Perfect Day at the Dump and Hardware Store


While I have been renovat-
ing the bathroom, the debris has
piled up. Outside that is so,
guess what time it is? It is time
to take a trip to the dump. I love
going to the dump. My Dad
used to take me when I was
little. He taught me a song about
rye whiskey, and he and I
would sing it with great gusto
while traveling to the dump.
Now why the song and the
dump appealed to me as a little
kid, I don't know. But this at-
traction still carries over into my
fifties.
The dump I frequent is
quite nice and expansive. There
is a recycling center and all de-
bris is separated. The best time
to get there is right at 7 a.m. No
traffic at that time. You can have
the whole dump to yourself.
And, the people who work there
are so nice, too. Important tip
number 1 bring your gloves.
I have to say that besides
going to the dump, my second
favorite place is going to the
hardware store. And this par-
ticular trip I bought tile for the
bathroom. But this isn't just any
tile. I bought golden marble and
multi colored green onyx tile. I
could only afford ten square feet
of the onyx. (If I had bought
any more, I would have had to
take a loan out on the house.
And my husband, Ralph, remi-

niscent of the Honeymooner's
Ralph Cramden, would have
gone "ka-boom.") The tile as-
sociate designed an excellent
pattern for me so that I could
have my onyx and marble floor.
And if that wasn't enough,
there was a "20% Off' sale in
the flooring department and...
if, that wasn't enough I had a
$250 gift certificate. Hey, it
doesn't get any better than that.
So let me leave you with tip
number two. If you are going to
lay a marble tile floor, get the
proper adhesive for marble be-
cause you cannot use the ge-
neric adhesive.
