Pensacola Beach Card Playing Aces Host Pair of Poker Events


Celebration For Education
Texas Hold 'Em 4444 Fun and
Island Times are sponsoring the third
annual Celebration for Education
Tournament on Saturday, October 10
with the call to "Shuffle up and deal"
being made about 4 p.m. at the
Sandshaker Lounge.
Players who want to brush up
on their skills or those who need to
gain a basic knowledge of the game
can participate in a poker instruc-
tional class starting at 3:30 p.m. The
class is free and includes game ba-
sics and poker etiquette.
There is no charge to play in
the Celebration for Education Tour-
nament, but a donation of $20 per
player will be accepted. All monies
will go to the Pensacola Beach El-
ementary School Music Department.
Players will be issued a stack of
twenty chips, which could be up to
$38,000 worth of chips to start.
"It really depends on how many
players sign up, but everyone is is-
sued the same amount of fun chips,"
said Rick Uzdevenes, promoter. "We
have some wow-factor chips that are
worth a million dollars in fun money.
If all goes well, we may see some
players betting with the big chips!"
Gaming tables will have eight
players each plus one dealer. There
were 47 players at the first Celebra-
tion for Education which was held
at the Paradise Bar and Grill. The
winner was Bank of the South teller,
Jon Rhodes. Last year, the tourney
was held at Tiki Island Golf and
Games and Beach poker icon Tex
Atkinson was the winner.
"The Shaker is a great place to
play. We have a covered area, but it
is not enclosed so you get the fresh
air, too. Should be a fun afternoon,"
said Tex who plays poker every
chance he gets.


The first hand will be dealt
around 4 p.m. and there will be a ten
minute break each hour.
As players get knocked out,
seats will be shuffled around until
the last eight to nine players are still
alive. They will be moved to the fi-
nal table from which the winner will
emerge.
If your stack of chips is dwin-
dling or not as big as you would like,
you may get more chips by making
another donation. Re-buy will be al-
lowed until the final table is seated.
"Since this is to raise funds for
the Beach School's music depart-
ment, we will encourage players to
make additional donations and re-
ceive extra chips all afternoon long,"
said Uzdevenes.
The Beach School Music De-
partment is the beneficiary of the
donations because there are a num-
ber of Beach poker players who are
also musicians. Rick Uzdevenes, the
founder of the tournament, performs
and writes blues music under the
name Saltwater Rick.
The tournament will last from
three to four hours depending on
the number of entrants and pace of
play.
"A winner should be crowned
around 7:30 or 8 p.m." according to
Uzdevenes. "I understand some of
the lady riders from the Biker Chick
Slumber Party will be joining us at
the poker tables. We are looking for-
ward to a good crowd."
The top six players will be
awarded special Texas Hold 'Em 4444
Fun Commemorative Mugs. They
are clear glass mugs with the tour-
nament name, poker chips and the
date emblazoned on them.
The winner gets an engraved
keepsake Texas Hold 'Em 4444 Fun
Celebration For Education award.

Mike Nixon Joins Beach Chamber Board


Mike Nixon took his seat at his
first Pensacola Beach Chamber of
Commerce meeting on September
22. Other Board members welcomed
Nixon, who is the Regional Director
of Operations for Innisfree Hotels.
The Board discussed their
highly successful Taste of the Beach
festival on September 19 and 20.


Beach Chamber Exec Maureen
LaMar awards Crab's Kitchen
Manager Jere Doyle the Best Dish
award at the Taste of the Beach.


The Board officially accepted
monies raised at the Anything That
Floats and Bathtub Races and the
Sandshaker's Queen contest. Those
donations will be used to cover
event costs from the Taste of the
Beach and Art and Wine Weekend.
"It is wonderful to see the
Chamber exceed its financial goal
and be able to support these quality
events on Pensacola Beach," said
Maureen LaMar, executive director.
The Board will send a special
thanks to Jack Lawrence of H20
Water in Gulf Breeze for supplying
filtered drinking water for Taste of
the Beach; to Lila Cox and the
Pensacola Beach Advocates for co-
ordinating the festival recycling and
water bottle sales; and Mary
Montcalm and the Gulf Breeze High
School Key Club for manning the
Kid's Area. Also, to Julian
MacQueen, owner of Innisfree Ho-
tels; Tammy Bohannon, owner of
Emerald Coast Rentals; and Beverly


Boswell, co owner of the Sandshaker
for their sponsorship of the stain-
less steel water bottle program.
Winner of the Taste of the
Beach Best Dish category was Crab's
for its Crab Cake Sliders. Because of
its popularity, the dish is being
added permanently to Crab's menu.
The Best Decorated Booth award
went to Hemingway's Island Grill.
Despite the weather, the event
attracted thousands of attendees.
"We look forward to making
this event a regional attraction where
we can show everyone how won-
derful a taste of the beach really is,"
said Nan Harper, Chamber events
chairman.
The Board approved the date
of Tuesday, December 29 for their
annual holiday party. A volunteer
appreciation luncheon will also be
hosted.
For Chamber membership infor-
mation or to volunteer, call Maureen

Barefoot on the Beach


By Jane Waters Cooper


Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh
my. I'm not talking about the zoo or
the Wizard of Oz here. I'm talking
about the animals who live on col-
lege campuses all over the United
States. These animals are loved, pet-
ted and honored. They are, after all,
the team mascots. According to a
survey by Dr. Ray Yarborough,
there is not a college or university,
large or tiny, which does not have a
mascot. Some of these animals are
for real. Remember Mike the Tiger
who attends LSU games? Others
are students dressed in costumes
and masks, sort of turning out to
resemble Dorothy's buddy, the
Cowardly Lion.
Actually, the top college mas-
cot is the majestic Eagle. Most
Eagles are costumed such as Awe-
some Eagle, mascot of the Tennes-
see Tech Golden Eagles. None of
these glorious eagles are kin to Kan-
sas University's Jayhawks, which
are not really real birds at all. This
emblem is a cross between a blue
jay and a sparrow hawk. No wonder
it took so long for the Kansas foot-
ball team to get in the top twenty-
five rankings.
Second in the survey is the Ti-
ger, with the original mascot dating
back to 1884. This ancient mascot
is at Princeton University. Then
there's the Clemson Tiger, and Toby


I


k ld

6TIu Golf and Games


the live tiger who represents the
University of Memphis. There is
Aubie the costumed tiger of Auburn
University.
For the record, hundreds of ti-
gers show up to staunchly stand
by their teams every week. Some-
times, they are successful, some-
times not. We don't know what hap-
pens when two tigers meet and snarl
at each other on the field of combat.
We do know the bulldogs, pan-
thers and Knights are third, fourth
and fifth in popularity according to
the survey. The all-time favorite bull-
dog has to be Hairy Dog who
watches over the University of Geor-
gia. At least, when he's not sleep-
ing. And did you know that Pounce,
the Blue Panther, is the mascot at
Georgia State?
Lions are roaring on many cam-
puses. They are costumed to look
like lions that won'tbite or maul any-
one unless they are playing foot-
ball. I only know one lion, a Nittany
Lion, in fact the Beach's Kristin
Amberson. Her alma mater, Penn
State has created a storied past and
present under the watchful eye of
the Nittany Lion. Want to know
what Nittany means?
Nittany is a Native American
term meaning single mountain.
There happens to be one near
Penn State, so the originator of the

mascot, added Nittany to lion to
declare him the "fiercest beast of
them all." That happened 102 years
ago.
The Bears and Hawks are
number seven and eight with the
next three tying for ninth Cou-
gars, Pioneers, and Warriors.
It's the mascots who did not
make the charts who are the most
preposterously goofy of all. There
are those in the food category.
Not as in tailgate. As in mascots.
For instance, the Rajun
Cajuns of Louisiana Lafayette,
pay homage to their gumbo by fea-
turing a costumed Chili Pepper as
their mascot of choice. Maybe
they are a red hot team in their di-
vision.
Another gumbo ingredient
adorns the flag of Delta State Uni-
versity. Drum roll, please! They are
known as the Fighting Okra and
have the honor of being named
one of the ten worst mascots by
David Letterman.
One more I just have to men-
tion is the Flying Pickle, mascot

of the University of North Caro-
lina School of Arts. If the Cayenne
Peppers met the Flying Okras,
would spontaneous combustion
occur?
Dartmouth College has an un-
official mascot named Keggy the
Keg. A Keggy might work for a
number of different universities I
can think of.
Romance enters the picture at
the University of South Alabama
where the female mascot Miss
Pawla, the costumed jaguaress is
the girlfriend of Southpaw, the
costumed male jaguar. Also, along
these same lines, is the romantic
encounter of a Nittany lioness and
a regular lion named Rocky Two
who watched over games at Slip-
pery Rock University in Pennsyl-
vania. Kristin was the Nittany and
her now husband, Scott, was a
disciple of Rocky Two. And, you
know the rest of the story.
The survey did not mention the
University of Nebraska's
Cornhusker nor the University of
West Florida's Argonaut. One thing

is for sure, they will never meet an-
other Husker or Argo anywhere.
Sadly, the survey did not cover
the NFL where my favorite team is
forever blessed by being the Saints.
I also regret that the survey did
not include the mascot of a school
which has no football team, basket-
ball team, or even a soccer team. Its
student body is comprised of bright
scholars, and its mascot, for the
record, is the Pensacola Beach Sand-
piper.
I guess I will hop in the 1930
Ford mascot of Georgia Tech and
leave the subject of mascots forever.

Larry Keever, who recently
registered a complaint with the Is-
land Times publisher that the trivia
questions were too hard, got re-
demption last week when he
rushed to his computer to be the
first to answer the current trivia
question. Larry emailed that the
name of the band which started
out in the entertainment complex
where Flounder's is now located
were the Alman Joys, which later
became known as the famous
Alman Brothers Band. Larry was
so sure that he had won that he
inquired about the colors of shirts
in size XXL. He now has a teal Is-
land Times t-shirt.
Jeff Goudey also sent the cor-
rect answer, and also noted that
the Blue Magoos were playing at
the Five Flags Inn during that time
period. Good info. Too late.
Remember the Beach Postman
Kim Travis? He and his wife,

Jaqui, submitted the correct an-
swer as well. They also sent pho-
tos of their son, Dustin who was
recently married at Ocean Springs
Lake in New Jersey. Jaqui wrote,
"Where does the time go? It seems
just like yesterday that Dustin was
digging a hole in the sand beside
our house on Largo. Now, he is on
his way to Afghanistan."
Mike Willet had the right an-
swer as did Dave Wheeler of At-
lanta, and Chuck Steele, all too late.
Susan Kennedy from JME
also came along with the right an-
swer and wondered what the name
of the place was. She said her
grandmother took her there to
lunch when she was a little girl and
she got a Coke with a swizzle stick
with a giraffe on top.
Well, Dave Greenwood, Head
of the Beach Lifeguards, rescued
us on the question of what the
name of the place was. He emailed

the name of the complex, The Oa-
sis, instead of sending in the name
of the band. Maybe he had ESP
working with Susan.
So, the Trivia Master got a
bundle of correct answers this time,
although he noticed the knights and
the countess of the Roundtable were
missing. Sir Bill Greene is in rehab
after being hospitalized, so he has a
good excuse. A Songwriter's Festi-
val took place on the Beach on Oc-
tober 3 and 4 this year. There was an
original Songwriters event on
Pensacola Beach in the early 1990s.
Who was the person who started
and coordinated it?
Rules are the same. Send your
answer to islandtimes

the subject line and include
your name, phone number. Dead-
line to answer is Tuesday, Oc-
tober 13, 2009.
Good luck!

by Kathi Lewis Reports have been floating in
from all areas of the island, a family


October 1 was my twenty-sev-
enth anniversary here. I have now
lived here more than anywhere else
- over half of my life. Congratula-
tions to my Sister Christine "Bunky"
Hewerdine who just celebrated her
twenty-ninth year here.
Once upon a time long, long
ago I left Albany, Georgia to move
here (1982). People told me I was
making big mistake and that I would
be tired of the beach within three
years. So, what did they know, huh?
Like many before and after me,
I chose this island without knowing
anyone who lived here already. My
daughter Mel was only 9-years-old
(which is the age of grandson Jesiah
today) and the first person we met
was the lovely woman who rented
us our first home, Ellen Schroth. So,
thanks Ellen, for taking that big
chance on us complete unknowns.
She became my friend that first day
we met and still thinks I'm the best
typist in all of Gulf Breeze.
My friends in Georgia also knew
I didn't have employment lined up.
What they didn't know was that I've
always had the ability to work, sur-
vive and to control my life and make
necessary adjustments or changes
so that I can enjoy the ride. Doesn't
everybody do that?
It was not long until I felt the
magic of Island life It's so magical
you can spin fairy tales right out of
the salt air. I became part of the
Beach family and accumulated a
bunch of sisters Sisters of the
Beach.
SOB's can live anywhere and
still be an SOB. They are born, not
made and they are loving, giving,
caring, amazingly talented, gifted,
and the absolutely most fun friends
you will ever have. Thanks to all of
you who created and contributed to
our incredible eclectic SOB Art with
such a talented array of art media.
We had everything from our signa-
ture collectible SOB Island Girl Art
to fresh garden herbs and mouth wa-
tering delectable home cooked reci-
pes. We sold items that were hand-
painted, sewed, glued, written or
stamped art right down to SOB pins,
buttons and key chains.


If you were unable to be part of
the Chamber's Art and Wine Week-
end, you have one more chance to
purchase items at the SOB Christ-
mas Brunch. The date will be an-
nounced later.
If you're not able to attend the
SOB Brunch, then I'm sure you can
look forward to receiving a wonder-
ful Christmas or birthday gift from
another Sister. Or maybe you can
join us in playing in the American
Legion Putt-Putt Tournament on
Saturday, Oct. 17. The SOB's willbe
playing this year in honor of Chuck
LeBumL'Oignon.
While Elaine Mitchell, our chef
for Wednesday Nite Mental Health,
was having fun in Dallas this sum-
mer, Paulette Provost cooked us this
week's fabulous recipe. No, it's not
crawfish pie, but it's just as mouth-
watering! We were just about moan-
ing with pleasure over this dish. I
had to beg, beg and beg Paulette for
this recipe which she first cooked
as a very young woman in Louisi-
ana. Okay Krewe of Wrecks Queen
Paulette, this one's foryou! I'm also
a good 'begger' so let's cook...

Paulette's Bastille Chicken
3 Fryers or equivalent weight in
chicken breasts
20 medium size Potatoes
2 Ibs. Bacon
6 Ig. Onions
salt, black & red pepper
crushed garlic & parsley (optional)

Fry bacon crisp. Cut chicken
into pieces and season to taste (salt,
black and red pepper). Fry chicken
in bacon drippings. Peel and halve
potatoes and brown in bacon drip-
pings. Into a large roasting pan, put
a layer of chicken first, then layer of
potatoes, thinly sliced onions, and
bacon. Repeat until all ingredients
are used. Cover and bake at 350
degrees for 40 minutes, then un-
cover and bake 10 minutes longer.
(Generously serves 8 adults and can
easily be halved to serve 4.) Warm
or cold, it's delicious and makes a
full meal by serving garlic bread and
salad.
Enjoy, share and I'll see ya in
the kitchen......

two young dark swans and

offspring, so they may take
off at some point.
There are some
safety considerations for
both the swans and their
admirers. Since swans are
not domesticated animals
and are quite territorial,
they can be aggressive,
especially the parents
when protecting their
young. Children should
be kept at a distance from
the swans.
According to Swan
Surveillance reporter and
Villa Sabine resident
Priscilla Clark, her swan
sightings are daily and

Surprised to learn thatwine labels did not come into widespread

the swans appeared to be friendly

"I have seen them several times.
Once they swam right up to my kayak
while I was fishing," Clark said.
Charles and Wanda, the secu-
rity guards at EPA Island, said they
have been in EPA Lagoon every
morning for the past week. Wanda
reached out and petted one of the
youngsters on its breast feathers.
McIntyre says these beauties
are Mute Swans and keeping them
requires a permit.
"My only concerns would be if
the dredging of Little Sabine would
put them in danger or they would
get hit while crossing the road. Oth-
erwise, returning them to Regency
would probably work only until they
decide to leave again. Independent
souls they are indeed," he mused.
Why does the family of Mute
Swans travel the island? The Swan
Surveillance Team does not know
and the swans are not talking.

BYTES AND BITS

By Joe Stukey, Your Computer Pal


Q:"What can I do with my
old computer?"
A: Don't throw it in your
trash can --- it's too toxic. You
can always send it to the recy-
cling center, but here are some
more creative ways to make use
of it. Donate it to a friend or
aging relative. Or dedicate it
to a specific use, such as one of
these: use it to monitor your se-
curity system, or play some of
the old classic games on it (the
games that won't work with
Vista). Turn it into a jukebox.
Playing tunes from your music
library doesn't require much
horsepower.
Turn it into a digital picture
frame. Software is available to
allow your favorite pictures to
be displayed on a timer. You can
buy a TV tuner that will turn that
big 19" screen into a fine tele-
vision screen. Or, you can in-

stall software that will allow you
to turn the computer into a digi-
tal video recorder.
If you are artistic, you might
find that circuit boards and elec-
tronic parts can become really
neat pieces of art. My son cre-
ated a sculpture entirely of com-
puter parts. It looks like some
kind of futuristic Robotech guy.
There is also a way to connect
the old computer to the Internet
so that research organizations
can use it for additional process-
ing power for their scientific
studies. For example, for study-
ing how to cure cancer.
You might even find that a
bit more memory is all that is
needed to make it good again.
Add some more RAM (memory)
to it and give it a few more years
of useful life. For questions,

Butterflies Come Back To Morgan Park After Five Year Hiatus


Butterflies will return to Mor-
gan Park and Botanical Gardens on
Pensacola Beach soon. Kay
Mitchell, Brenda Roose and Lydia
Abram, members of the Escambia
County Master Gardeners, will over-
see the planting of nineteen differ-
ent varieties of plants and flowers
in the Spring which will lure the deli-
cate winged creatures.
The entire park will experience
a much needed re-planting of native
plants which will take place in stages
over the next year, according to the
Master Gardeners' plan.
"After the hurricane some non-
native invasive plants have made
Morgan Park their home," said
Mitchell. "Mason Kilgore and the
SRIA maintenance team will spend
time cleaning and preparing the
planting sites, and we will direct the
project."
Morgan Park was originated in
1995 by Jim Randol, who was inter-
ested inbeach horticulture, to honor
the memory of Dr. James P. Morgan


who passed away in 1995.
Dr. Morgan, a world renowned
Coastal Geologist, lived with his wife
Dot on Pensacola Beach for sixteen
years. After retiring from Louisiana
State University's Geology Depart-
ment, Dr. Morgan was an adjunct
professor at the University of West
Florida, but spent much of his time
assisting the Santa Rosa Island Au-
thority on erosion and other envi-
ronmental problems.
During the dedication of the
park in March of 1997, Randol paid
tribute to his friend.
"He was a wonderful, scholarly
person and truly an asset to the Is-
land," Randol said.
The park, located just south of
the toll plaza on Santa Rosa Sound
was always a favorite spot of Dr.
Morgan's.
The original park was estab-
lished by Randol and a board of
individuals who formed a founda-
tion, designed primarily as a
fundraising group. Eventually, the


Island Authority budgeted $5,000
per year for the park. Hurricane Ivan
practically wiped the facility out in
2004. All the benches, podiums, the
Butterfly, Evergreen and Japanese
gardens were heavily damaged. The
foundation began working to bring
it back, but in 2006, Randol dis-
solved the Foundation and turned
the area back over to the Island Au-
thority, which restored and main-
tained the grounds.
No new planting has taken
place until now, when the Master
Gardeners and the Island Author-
ity have coordinated on a plant-
ing schedule for the park. Fund-
ing will come from the $5,000 bud-
geted by the SRIA to take care of
the park.
Morgan Park has always been
a popular place for small wed-
dings, memorials, school field trips
and other types of celebrations.
There is usually no charge for hold-
ing events, but all requests and pa-
perwork must be completed at the


Master Gardeners (Lto R) Kay Mitchell, Brenda Roose and Lydia Abram
visited Morgan Park, September 30 while reviewing the planting plan.


Authority office. Robbie Lofty,
events coordinator is the person
who handles these requests. She
canbe reached at 850-932-2257.
Morgan Park is open from
sunup until sundown, seven days a
week.

High Goals Set At Beach School Meeting


The Pensacola Beach Elemen-
tary School Board got an update on
progress toward financial and edu-
cational goals at their meeting Mon-
day, September 28. Board president
Todd McCurdy told the Board that
the Partners-in-Education dona-
tions totaled $16,500.
"We are well on our way to
reaching the $25,000 mark we need
to make our budgeted goal," said
McCurdy. "And, the Finance Com-
mittee report looks likes everything
else is doing well, too."
Principal Jeff Castleberry
handed out the School Improvement
Plan. It outlines academic, volunteer
involvement and technology goals
for the Beach School "We have set
very high goals and our teachers
workvery hard to exceed them," said
Castleberry.
The Board unanimously ap-
proved the School Improvement
Plan.
The Beach School has quali-
fied to participate in the Charter
School Merit Award Program. The

mance.

cult and almost unfair, but it is money
allocated at the state level and we
should take advantage of it,"
Castleberry said. "It is an opportu-
nity to earn about $5,000."
An additional $11,000 will come
to the Beach School for performing
as a "A" school. The Board allo-
cated a portion of the money for
teachers' bonuses and the remain-
der will go toward the purchase of
FCAT study materials.
Students at the Beach School
have been participating in comput-
erized reading assessments and pre-
FCAT testing all month, according
to third grade teacher Joy
McLaurine. But, it's not all work for
the students.
"Third grade had front row

Angels Air Show practice," she said.
"They also have been invited to see
Sleeping Beauty performed as abal-
let at the Saenger Theatre. It will be
exciting, but the third grade boys
don't believe me."
The annual Fall Festival is set
for Friday, October 30 on the school
campus from 5 to 8 p.m. The festival
includes games, music, food, danc-
ing, door prizes and a silent auction.
It is sponsored by the PTA as a

The two final Board meetings
for 2009 will be Monday, Novem-

I was a competitive swimmer
for my entire childhood and young
adult life. I must have swum thou-
sands of laps, up and down a 25-
yard pool during the short course
season (September through May),
followed by the same routine in a
50-meter pool (a true Olympic size
pool) during the months of June,
July and August. I worked out six
days a week. Sometimes even twice
a day. I was 100% dedicated to the
sport. Therefore, so was my mom.
In the early 1970's, my mom
was a maverick parent in the sport
of swimming. She was the president
of the Southern Amateur Athletic
Union, the governing body of swim-
ming at the time for the states of
Louisiana and Mississippi. I was so
proud of her that I wrote a poem
about this accomplishment.
My mom has brown hair,
Just like a grizzly bear.
She is the prestodent.
I was probably only seven at
the time when I penned those infa-
mous words. Little did we both
know that 13 years later I would still
be competing and she would even-
tually hold almost every volunteer
position and certification made
available on local, national and in-
ternational levels.
Well it's been 25 years since
I've truly competed in swimming
and since my mom has had to offi-
ciate at any level of the sport. I hung
up my goggles. She turned in her
referee hat. I did race for awhile at
the master's level when I lived in
California, but on more than one
occasion my efforts to compete on
a national level were thwarted by a
business trip or a sick child. It took
me a while to realize that swimming
was merely a hobby. Something I
did in my spare time. It was not my
job and I was certain it was not my
life.
That, however, has all changed.
Within the past year The Kid has
taken up the sport. No, Michael
Phelps had nothing to do with it.
Well before the 2008 Olympics and
while we were still living in North
Carolina, The Kid announced that
if we ever moved back to Maryland,
he wanted to swim on the team that


worked out in the big pool. The rest,
you could say, is history.
Now five nights a week, we
make the 90 minute round trip for
the 90 minute swim practice. Break-
fast has become the only meal we
eat together as a family. The Colo-
nel is never home at 4:30 in the af-
ternoon for the first dinner serving
and 8:00 p.m. is reserved for post
practice dinner snack. The true
translation is I am now cooking 10
dinners every Monday-Friday.
Feeding a pre-teen boy is a chal-
lenge in and of itself. Trying to fill
up a swimmer, no matter what the
talent level, just amplifies the situ-
ation.
As for me, I would like to say
I spend the 90 minutes on the pool
deck doing something nice for my-
self. A small treat between making
meals and doing dishes. Maybe
reading a good novel or catching up
on my old-fashioned letter writing
to friends and family. But I don't. I
now find myself engrossed in the
USA Swimming Rule Book study-
ing for the my Stroke and Turn
Judge test and preparing for my in-
ternship to become certified to
spend countless weekends getting
splashed and making sure competi-
tors are doing legal swim strokes
and turns.
Did Ijust write countless week-
ends? Maybe I have gone beyond
being a certified judge and straight
on to being certifiably crazy. I be-
lieve the chlorine fumes have pen-
etrated the reasoning portion of my
brain. Or potentially something
even worse could be happening to
me. I could suffer from a genetic
predisposition passed down from
my mom to volunteer and support
any activities my child participates
in. Hmmm. What's the saying?
Payback's a .... Until next time.

Biker Chicks

Head For

The Beach

Lady Motorcycle Riders
Host Sixth Slumber Party
Lady motorcycle riders will roll
onto Pensacola Beach Saturday,
October 10 at 3 p.m. decked out in
leather and lace ready for the Biker
Chick Slumber Party. Their destina-
tion is the Sandshaker Lounge and
the Comfort Inn.
The event begins at 9 a.m. at
Redline Motorcycles in Pensacola
where lady riders will register and
begin a day long ride after a
doughnut breakfast and a gift ex-
change. The ride leaves at 10:30
a.m. and travels 70 miles on coun-
try roads. The route turns south
to Navarre Beach where the group
stops for lunch at Juana's Pagoda.
The ride will continue along Santa
Rosa Island to Pensacola Beach.
"This is the sixth Slumber
Party we have planned, but we
have only been able to actual host
five, since one bad dude named
Ivan washed out our first planned
event, "said Babz Helm, event co-
ordinator. "Only ladies who ride
their own bikes are allowed on the
ride, but when we get to the Beach
we want everyone to join us to
party."
The Biker Chicks arrive on
Pensacola Beach at 3 p.m. in time
to enjoy the Beach and some will
take part in the Texas Hold 'Em
4444 Fun poker tournament. There
is special parking for motorcycles
at the Shaker and reduced room
rates at the Comfort Inn.
"We encourage all riders to
park their bikes in our cordoned
off area," said Beverly Boswell,
co-owner of the Shaker. "Plenty of
room for our biker friends."
The evening events start at 7
p.m. when the ladies trade their
riding clothes for nighttime attire.
They will gather at the Comfort
Inn for the Pajama Promenade to
the Shaker. Prizes will be awarded
for the best loungewear.
There is no charge to partici-
pate in this event. For more infor-
mation call 850- 934-4413.


THE RAYS ROCK The musicians from the band Journey were in town
September 21 to perform at the Civic Center, so Marta and Ricky Ray
gave them a tour of the best places on Pensacola Beach. The final stop
was Marta's kitchen for a Gulf Coast seafood dinner. Having fun in Villa
Sabine are (L to R) : Ricky Ray, Morgan Ray, Journey's Jonathan Cain,
Marta Ray, Bass player Ross Valory, and Glenn Shane.


Pat Scorzetti of American Hydrocarbon traveled from Spring Hill, Florida

Mostly Nuts Bolts


The Universal Light by Candace Segar
[This is Part IV of V]


Woman's Clubbers

Get Into the Spirit


August and Charlie's eyes in-
terlocked as if they had known
each other all their lives. Right at
that moment two things happened.
Charlie was being torn from Au-
gust and forced to focus on the
lamp. It was as if a magnet just
seized his head and turned it. And
that's when Jerry appeared.
"Let me introduce you two.
August, this is the reporter I was
telling you about. August, please
meet Charlie Simonson and
Charlie please meet August
Favrot," said Jerry.
Suddenly a strange thought
raced through Charlie's mind as
he shook August's hand. He did
not want her to buy the lamp. It
wasn't exactly a sense of fore-
boding, but just a feeling, a
hunch that triggered his thought.
Maybe it had something to do
with his compulsion toward the
lamp. He wanted to stare at the
unusual lamp.
He quickly focused back on
August and Jerry, and the three
of them exchanged pleasantries.
Shortly thereafter, Jerry excused
himself and took off to talk to
other customers and to get ready
for tonight's auction.
Charlie and August didn't no-
tice that Jerry had left. They were
both scrutinizing the lamp, the
markings and each other. Then
Charlie asked her a direct ques-
tion, but one he had to know the
answer to.
"What are you going to do
with this lamp if you win the bid?"
he inquired.
August thought carefully
about it before she replied, "Well,
I have a sun-meditation room, and
I plan on putting it in there. There
is something quite magical about
the lamp. I can't put my finger on
it exactly. It's as if it allows me to


go into an altered state of mind
and visit other dimensions. Now,
I know that sounds ridiculous,
but..."
"No," he interrupted, "I don't
think it's ridiculous at all. For
some reason this lamp has some
kind of pull on me as well. I un-
derstand what you are saying,
but.."
There was that strange feel-
ing coming over him again.
"But?" August asked with her
eyes focused on Charlie while her
right hand was touching the lamp.
"Well," Charlie hesitated, "I
am following a lead about this
lamp. It appears that whoever buys
the lamp disappears."
That remark totally caught
August off guard. She broke into
huge laughter with Charlie chim-
ing right in. This actually was
good because some of the tension
Charlie felt began to ease off.
They sat and talked right up to the
start of the auction, discovering
how much they had in common.
The lamp was pushed on its
wheels onto the floor and the bid-
ding began. Charlie winced as it
hit the $1000 mark, but he almost
cried when August got it for
$5000. He congratulated her and
took a bold step.
"August, would you like some
help getting your new lamp
home?" he asked.
She took an equally bold step
and said, "Yes, Charlie. I would
appreciate it very much."
Charlie followed August to
her home and helped her unload
the lamp. When they were unload-
ing it from her SUV a strange sen-
sation went through his entire
body and mind. It felt like a mini
shock had struck him and that
something was trying to commu-
nicate with him.

S-Cross -i- .- ti.Sand


I've noticed during the years I've
been on the beach that beach people
tend to look out for one another.
There's a kind of bonding between
our owners of businesses, the Beach
Elementary School and the two
churches Our Lady of the Assump-
tion, and the Beach Community
Church. Although there is great di-
versity in the belief system of our
churches, there is a closeness, not just
because of the geographical proxim-
ity, but because we both have a great
concern and love for people. Mem-
bers and friends of both churches
move back and forth to participate in
social activities and special programs.
I'm proud and honored to be a part of
this beach fellowship.
One of our diverse beliefs cen-
ters around Communion/the Eucha-
rist. The differences are deep and
greatly meaningful to members of
both groups. In Our Lady of the As-
sumption Church, the Eucharist is
observed each Sunday. In our Beach
Church, we schedule Communion on
the first Sunday of each month. Other


Di. Chuck Raniidle, Paslo
Pelnacola lS
Protestant churches may observe
Communion weekly, monthly, or oc-
casionally. Sunday, October 4, Prot-
estant churches around the world
joined with our Catholic friends for
World Communion Sunday.
As we received the bread, and
wine or grape juice, we knew that
Christians throughout the world had
symbolicallyjoined hands and hearts
to celebrate this great sacrament of
our Christian Faith.
In our Beach Church, we used
ethnic breads from various countries
of our world in our Communion, and
members and friends baked and of-
fered their favorite breads for which
contributions were collected to sup-
port the Loaves & Fishes Soup
Kitchen in Pensacola.
A great compliment was paid to
the early Christians, and we still ex-
perience it in many ways "See how
these Christians love one another."
And the wonderful and amazing thing
is that it is notjust Christians that are
loved, but all of God's people. May
it ever be so!

Fall fishing is in
full swing and the flatfish are here
early; and are big this season. Jenny
"Lionheart" Doherty hooked an
amazing 6.5 pounder, along with a
few others, on a recent trip with her
mate Trace Lewis. Trace also had a
fine time of it with his version of a
"board" meeting. Bull Minnows are
the bait of choice. Although they
were tight lipped about the location
of the catch, it's somewhere be-
tween the Bob Sikes Bridge and Ft.
Pickens, and there are rocks all
around it.
Texas Hold 'Em 4444 Fun's
player of the month Justin Scher
seems to be having a lot of luck


with his new rod and reel, too.
Justin has caught and released two
Ling around the Deer Point. area
while wading and fishing with live
pinfish in the last couple of weeks.
It's a rare thing to land one of these
in the Santa Rosa Sound. Looks
like all the rules and conservation
steps are paying off to me. It's very
good karma for Justin, too. Re-
leasing fish that are not in the slot
when you could sneak off them,
scores big points with the Fishing
Gods. Take a picture and move on.
It went down below 70 degrees
last night and those door mat sized
Flounder are out there, so do your-
self a favor and Go Fishin'.

fuls of fish caught two weeks
ago in Santa Rosa Sound. Ac-
cording to his fishing buddy
Justin Scher, Brandon is an
experienced angler with great
luck. He always comes home
with a good catch.

Trace Lewis and his faithful black
lab have called a Board Meeting
to order. Sitting on the Board are
five flounder who graciously
joined a recent fishing trip. They
also were invited to dinner at
Trace's house, as the featured
guests.
