Pensacola Beach, Florida
Top Gun Turned Blue Angel
Soars Over Beach
United States Marine Corps Major Chris Collins will roar in his F/A-18 Hornet across the skies above Pensacola Beach, July 7-10 as part of
the Pensacola Beach Air Show. Collins joined the U. S. Navy's Blue Angels, Flight Demonstration Squadron, after graduating from Navy Fighter
Weapons School (TOPGUN) in 2007. He flew as the Blue Angels Left Wing pilot in 2009. He has accumulated more than 2,800 flight hours and
350 carrier arrested landings. His decorations include three Strike Flight Air Medals, two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals with
Combat Distinguishing Device, a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal. Collins and the world famous Blue Angels performed for 8 million
fans last year. For more in this, see Page 2.
Look Up! Blue Angels Ready To Roar
The spirit of everyone who
loves Pensacola Beach will soar sky
high this week as they look up at the
heavens and not down to the sand.
Oil spill problems will be on the
back burner for the few days of Red,
White and Blues Week while Beach
locals welcome thousands of visi-
tors to enjoy the spectacular, world
famous Blue Angels Air Show. The
festivities will begin on Wednesday,
July 7 at 8 a.m. with the Blue Angels
flying circle and arrival maneuvers.
Wednesday is the perfect day for
guests and locals to enjoy breakfast
on the Beach and observe the first
portion of the event.
The Practice Show will be at
2 p.m. on Thursday, July 8. A full
dress rehearsal of the Beach Air
Show will begin at noon on Friday,
July 9. The complete Air Show,
which is like the eighth wonder of
the world to Pensacola fans, will
begin at noon on Saturday, July 10.
Warm-up acts will include local
Beach hotelier Julian MacQueen
flying his Grumman Widgeon G-44.
Others performing in the pre-
show will be Skip Stewart flying
Prometheus, Team RV, and Red and
the Dragon, presented by Dragon
The skies heat up and the
crowds along with them when Fat
Albert, the C-130 Hercules arrives,
announcing the beginning of the
thrilling air show at 2 p.m.
Blue Angels pilots are hand
picked for their ability to fly. They
do not receive extra pay, but con-
sider it to be an honor to be chosen
as part of the flight team. Their
contributions to the community are
perhaps less well known than their
exploits in the air.
Kellie Price is assigned to main-
tenance control with the Blue Angels
Flight Demonstration Team. She is
also a volunteer assistant teacher
in Debbie Cam-

Barefoot on the Beach
By Jane Waters Cooper 16a
We were total strangers. We
were not relatives. We all lived on
Ariola Drive on Pensacola Beach
and therein lies a tale. By some
ironic stroke of fate, two of us were
named Jane Waters and one went by
All of us JJ, who lived on
lower Ariola; Jane I, who lived in
middle Ariola; and Jane II, who
lived on upper Ariola, soon became
close friends as exclusive members
of the "Same Name Sorority."
It was a time of great frustra-
tion. The postman never could
figure out which Jane got what
mail. Delivering the mail to the
wrong person was routine for him.
He knew that Jane Waters lived
on Ariola. He just was never quite
sure which was which or who was
who. A day rarely went by when I
did not receive Jane I's or JJ's mail
and vice versa. At least, the postman
was consistent. He did not believe
in addresses. He believed in people.
Several times I went to the Post
Office and explained to them that
there were three J. Waters living on
Ariola Drive. Would the postman
please deliver to the address? They
responded by looking at me like I
was the five-year-old who took the
last cookies out of the jar... like I
was making this all up.
As it turned out, others joined
the confusion, florists, UPS, furni-
ture stores, Federal Express. It was

were in a photo taken twenty-six

babies all of their lives, so this
knowledge wins a t-shirt for her.
Not far behind was Renee Mack
who also correctly identified both
kids. The Countess Kim LoBue
recognized the two and sent her
answer for good measure.
Debbie Campanella, who
should have recognized her former
students, was half right. She identi-
fied Lindsey, but thought the little
boy was Harry Newkirk.
Trivia playing vacationer Jac-
qui Sisk, did some hard core re-
search and came up first with Jimmy
and Lucy Buffett and later, Jessie
and Ann Brown, children of the
owners of the Native Caf6. Then,
she made one more wild guess. She
said they were Shelley Johnson's
children, Liz and Harry. Oops,
sorry. Liz is her sister and Harry
is her nephew. Try again, Jacqui.
We'll plan a question which is not
so "old beach."
Lindsey Stanley is a licensed
boat captain. She attended the Beach
School and was once a cheerleader
at Gulf Breeze Middle School. She
is now the pretty bartender you see
everyday at the Paradise Bar and
Grill. Her son Easton, described as
a "pistol" will be three in Novem-
ber. Lindsey was competing in a
beauty pageant as a one-year-old
in the photo.
Jeremy works just a few doors
away from Paradise at Island Realty

where he is a broker-associate Re-
altor. He was two-years-old when
the photo was taken and obviously
didn't think a beauty pageant was
the coolest thing to watch. He
played football at Gulf Breeze High
School, graduated from the Univer-
sity of Florida in 2004 and married
Rachael Edwards two weeks later.
The Trivia Master really likes
the taste of his next question.
National S'mores Day will be cel-
ebrated August 10. A Florida hotel
will be serving S'more martinis and

the exact recipe, you will be the chef

I am so proud of our Wooly
Booger Queen Shugah Shelley
Johnson. (I call her my Deuce
Queen ShelleyBean because she's
also the Queen of the Krewe of
Wrecks) What a fabulous job she's
done with her very first storm. We
have nothing to worry about Island-
ers; we are in very good and power-
ful hands. See, y'all thought that
whole altar thing was just a bunch
of hoo-haa. Well you were wrong;
it was a whole bunch of Hoo-Doo,
We-Doo and other powerful stuff
happening You need to believe.....
I certainly believe this is the
quietest summer I've ever seen on
this Island. I called one of the local
eateries and ordered dinner to pick-
up one Saturday evening at 6:30 in
late June. I easily found parking
and there was only one customer
when I entered the shop. Normally
I would not even consider trying to
order food from anywhere on the
Island during the summer. At the
most, we would just order pizza and
let them fight their way through the
crowds and traffic. I am almost at
a loss for words -
Well, not really! Had you
going for a minute there, though,
didn't I? But hey we've got a lot
of fun stuff that happens in July. If
it's just us Islanders here to enjoy
it, then we'll put our tiaras on and
go enjoy. And while I certainly
don't have enough money to keep
all our business establishments in
the style to which they've become
accustomed during the summer, I
will spend what I have right here.
And I will spread it around to as
many places as possible.
Some of you may have to take
turns, or I will see you the next
month, but I'll get there. And I
won't be alone. (Wow! That kinda
sounds more like a threat, huh?) No,
really I do have a couple of friends.
I hope all of you will join me
this month for COLORS (Cel-
ebration of Life on the Republic
of Sandspurs). It's on Thursday,
July 15 from 5-7 p.m. and we'll be
visiting Castaways. I talked to the
manager Jimmy Wilcher and they're
expecting us, so it's all set. It's lots
of fun and there's nothing to join.
Just socializing, celebrating our
lives and taking advantage of the
Happy Hour prices. I've seen their
advertisement (in this newspaper,
of course) and I do believe these
people really know how to make
an hour happy. I'm going to find
out for sure!
One of my friends, Peggy Hen-
shall, recently asked my advice on
wearing those see-through dresses I
like so much. "Do you need to wear
a slip?" she inquired.
Unfortunately, she sent me an
e-mail instead of calling me and
she was leaving for a trip the next
day. I'm much faster with the tele-
phone. So I'm just now answering
her question and I believe it needs
to be shared. Peggy is not the only
one with this dilemma because those
dresses are very "hot" this year in
the Island fashion world. It's be-
cause they are cooler than anything
else. And, to me, a slip totally
defeats the whole "cooler"purpose.
The only thing anyone can see
"through" the dress is the outline
of your legs. I swear it! Don't let
anyone fool you because these same
legs would be completely exposed
to viewing if you wore shorts or a
swim suit. So, if someone tells me,
"I can see through your dress" my
standard answer will always be, "I
don't care!" If you do, then you
need a slip!
In the meantime, I'm getting
ready for the friends who will be
joining Bill and me to watch our
beloved Blue Angels mesmerize
us with their always amazing per-
formance. We have an excellent
view from our deck so we invite
friends for the full dress rehearsal

knows what it will be this year? If
it's as hot as usual, then that means
lots of cold stuff. Maybe some nice

Since it has been so very, very
hot lately, (you know that "too hot
to move" kind of heat?) I've come
up with the perfect dessert. I'm
sharing it because it's so easy, very
versatile, will feed a crowd or your
entire family very economically, can
be eaten anywhere, can be personal-

you only have to go in the kitchen
once. So, let's cook...

plan to enjoy them.
Place a piece of the chocolate
bar in your mouth, let it melt 5
seconds then add marshmallows.
You can add as many as you like to
get your exactly perfect mixture of

even use chocolate bars with nuts.

Beach Chamber Links Arms
Asks For Local Patronage
Togetherness has deep meaning
for the members of the Pensacola
Beach Chamber of Commerce as
they make plans to convince guests
to continue to come to the Beach, oil
or no oil. At their meeting on June
29, the 123 member organization
vowed to stick together and keep
Beach business alive.
Jeff Elbert, president, told
the members, "We have a great
Chamber. Our work is worthwhile.
We need to work together to get
through this. We need to support
our neighbor businesses, shop, eat
and emphasize this to our families,
friends, customers and clients."
Maureen LaMar, executive
director, said the parking lot at the
Casino Beach would be cleared of oil
related equipment for the Air Show.
"Parking availability is impor-
tant as well as the overall impression
and look of the main beach area,"
said Robbie Lofty, Santa Rosa Is-
land Authority events coordinator.
During the report from busi-
nesses, most reported that volume
was down, especially at hotels.
Mike Nixon, director of opera-
tions for Innisfree Hotel Corpora-
tion, said, "May should have been
way up. We were trending up, but
the numbers will be a little flat if
not down. When June's report be-
comes available, I think you will
see the impact of the oil spill. The
perception is terrible and it does not
need to be."
The Chamber Board has been
invited to the Hospice Evening of
Comedy, August 14 at the Hilton as
a thank you for their coordination of
the Go Irish on the Island donation
Robert Gleim, district manager
for Homestar Restaurants sent the
members away laughing when he
told them to look at the three white
swans swimming in the Sound.
"They are still all white," he
The next Chamber meeting will
be at 8:30 a.m. at the Days Inn on
Tuesday, July 27. Business After

THE SEAGULLS SING
The disaster in the Gulf has the Island Poets Society on high alert.
Many have submitted poems, songs and free verse to share.
GulfDisaster The Heart of the Fisherma%
By Lloyd Hess A Song by Karen Rimer Jurkowich
It started with an explosion
Far out in the Gulf. In the eyes of the Fisherman I ask you now, sir,
Eleven men lost their lives Can you see the heartbreak of generations gone?
And that was bad enough. A sweet glance, a shared hope for what used to be.
Will we ever get back there again?
The amount of water put on the fire
Caused the rig to sink. In the soul of the Fisherman, the spark is fading fast,
That may not have been the cause As he looks out to sunsets and marshes steeped in oil.
But it's what the experts think. The precious coast is calling him, but there's nowhere he can go.
Will he ever get back there again?
They couldn't get the well head sealed
Though they tried for about a week. Refrain:
BP tried to tell the world Our shores were pristine then and children would play;
That it was a tiny leak. Families would g-ah,. and while away the day.
Hearts filled with memories oh, where can we turn?
That proved not to be the case To the heart of the Fisherman.
As the oil continued to flow
The country watched in horror To the family of the Fisherman, our hope is with you now.
As the slick began to grow. A new day, a new dawn, we'll get there once again.
Walk with me strengthening our purposeful stride.
Louisiana was the first state Yes, I know we'll get back there again,
To see oil come ashore. To the heart of the Fisherman.
At first it was just some tar balls
Then later so much more. Refrain:
Our shores will be pristine again and children will play;
They tried to save the animals Families will g,ah,. and while away the day.
Covered in oily slime. Hearts filled with memories oh, where can we turn?
Many thousands of them will die. To the heart of the Fisherman. Yes, the heart of the Fisherman.
It's just a matter of time.

Buck Lee Clarifies Confusion Over
Closing Gulf To Swimmers
Buck Lee, Santa Rosa Island
Authority Executive Director, made
every effort to clear the air around the
oily waters which are often making
their way to the shores of Pensacola
Members of the local and na-
tional media attended his press
conference on Wednesday, June 30
when he told them, "The Beach is
never closed. The Beach is open for
sunning, picnicking, playing horse-
shoes or doing whatever you want to
do on the sand."
The Gulf of Mexico is a differ-
"Last Wednesday (June 23)
we had a large influx of oil and by
products so we closed the Gulf water
to swimmers," Lee said.
Frustrations arise when it comes
to closing the water. Apparently,
there is no real way to determine the
safety of the water for swimming.
In view of the lack of scientific
reports, Bob West, SRIA Director of
Safety, and Lee, rely on aerial views
of the water, maps regarding the
position and locations of oil, updates
on all official reports and test results.
"We are making visual in-
spections by flyovers from the air.
Each morning lifeguards patrol in
vehicles over eight miles of the
beach. They report results to Bob
West," said Lee.
Lee stood firm in his belief that
closing the Gulf is a public health
issue, not a safety issue.
"People need to use common
sense before entering the Gulf. In
my opinion there is a real need to
be able to test the water quality
and receive an immediate result.
Until that happens we will have to
continue to observe by land and by
air," Lee said.
Keith Wilkins, Escambia Coun-
ty Bureau Chief, voiced his frustra-
tion as well with the lack of scien-
tific evidence of the water quality.
"As a scientist, I have been
quite frustrated with the fact that
there is no science in place to tell
us what the acceptable levels of hy-
drocarbon in the water is," Wilkins
said. "Agencies at all levels, federal,
state, local and health departments
are trying to develop water safety
standards. Based on the lack of
data we have to err on the side of
The University of West Florida
is taking water samples in six swim
locations and testing it, but it takes
days to get the results.
Buck Lee said to the press,
"You must believe me when I say
that West and I had to make a deci-
sion on June 23 of what we thought
was best for the safety of our resi-
dents and visitors."
West added, "We will use com-
mon sense in deploying lifeguards
into the Gulf when there is oil pres-
ent. If the water looks bad, please
use common sense. The oil is not
really a public safety issue; it is a
public health issue."
In answer to the press corps'
questions, Wilkins said some people
would be more sensitive to the oil
than others, so the health issue
Lee closed the meeting by
sending a request through the media
that visitors and locals should come
to Pensacola Beach.
"We will continue to monitor
this situation day by day and expect
things to change with the tide. The
Blue Angels will go on as sched-
uled. God Bless America."

Q: "Can I recover a file that I
A: Recovery of a deleted file
is simple if the file went into the
"Recycle Bin" on your desktop.
To see if the file is in the Recycle
Bin, click on that icon to view its
contents. If the file is found there,
right-click it with your mouse and
then click "Restore." The file will
return to its original location.
If the file is not in the Recycle
Bin, the task becomes more diffi-
cult. If it is critical that you restore
the file, you should immediately
turn your computer off. The file,
even though deleted, may still be
intact but hidden on the hard disk.
Continuing to use the computer
might cause the deleted file to be
over-written by the Windows soft-
The hard disk would have to
be removed from the computer
for examination with specialized
recovery software. The software
can be purchased, or downloaded
as a trial copy, through the Internet.
It should be installed on a separate
computer, so that you do not risk
over-writing the deleted file. The
hard disk containing the deleted file
can be attached to a computer by in-
serting it into an external case, then
connecting the case to the computer
with a USB cable. The recovery
software examines the hard disk
and locates the deleted file. You can
then save the file to a new location
on the computer.
If all that sounds too compli-
cated, the hard disk can be shipped
to a recovery service, such as On
Track Recovery. There it will be
examined by trained specialists,
who are usually successful at re-
trieving all or most of the data. It
is an expensive operation though,

Thinking Out Loud
Just image that everything
you have been told is not exactly
true. And further imagine that
your ancestors are not from this
planet. What would you do if all of
a sudden, visiting extraterrestrial
beings showed up and said, "We're
Grandma and Grandpa!"
Would you faint, run, hide,
embrace them, shake their "hands,"
ask them questions? And what if
your next door neighbors' family
looked totally different a group
of beings from another galaxy -
what would you do then?
I think about these things a
lot. I rather like the idea of having
"other people" from another planet
in this Universe or possibly an-
other Universe. I would hope that
they understand the meaning of
peaceful coexistence, something
humans haven't figured out yet.
What if Earth as a planet was
beginning to shut down? What if

Tex Atkinson and Todd Lentini each
earned three wins during weekly
tourneys in June. Scher had two
second place finishes which gave
him the points to secure the title.
"These are three fine poker
players," said Waldo Defindorfin,
Beach poker commissioner. "We
are lucky to have the high quality
of play that we do."
Todd Lentini, who posted a first
place on June 27 at Paddy O'Leary's
over Les Archer, said, "I will be
back in July. I have already earned
a second place finish on July 1."

multitude of inhabitants? What if
you had the opportunity to go to
another planet to become the
"Pilgrims or Robinson Crusoe"
of the planet? Would you consider
leaving Earth? Would you want
to travel and explore the Star
systems? What if "your people"
offered that to you as an alterna-
tive to staying on Earth? Would
I wonder what it would be like
to discover other dimensions rather
than just living with the ones we
have. This, of course, brings to
mind one of the best episodes of
"The Twilight Zone."
Do you think that we will
discover another dimension in this
It is good to think. Maybe it
should be promoted more in school
- to think for one's self.
What do you think?

Although the King and Cobia Tournament was cancelled due to offshore fishing closures,
the Bud Light Inshore Slam anglers weighed in at Flounder's Beach, Saturday, June 26. (Left)
Ryan Ard reeled in a 3.36 pound Flounder. The doormat, as he called it, won the Flounder di-
vision. His dad, Jay Ard (photo, right) shows off the Redfish they brought to the scales. The
father-son duo from Atlanta were the first to bring a catch to the weigh-in. They fished aboard
Jay's 192 with Mike and Tyler Murphy.

Slater Trout never forgets where he spent
his early years before moving to Hawaii to be-
come a professional paddle boarder. During
a recent visit to Pensacola Beach, Trout, left,
spent time with his former school teacher, Deb-
Trout, who calls Maui home, competed in
the Gulf Coast Stand Up Paddle Champion-
ships in Maderia Beach, Florida on Saturday
May 22. He finished the 9 mile race in first place
in the Elite Class paddling division.
Jeff Cartwright is spending his summer

Shark is on the menu this week
as the boys, Justin Scher and Big
Brandon Carey, took in a couple of
Black Tips off the coast using kay-
aks to set their bait.
"Cut Ladyfish on the bottom
and we weren't out there an hour
before we were beached and were
packing to head home," Justin said.
"Get the fillet knife out!"
The shallows are full of the
Gulfs bounty with everyone try-
ing to find fresh saltwater to live
in. The inshore fishing has been
great with the Big Three- Specks,
Flounder and Redfish ready and
waiting for something to do. Har-
vesting and freezing is a good idea
right now. It is very hard these
days to go fishing' and write about
what I find.
Everyone, call your Congress-
person or better yet call The White
House and make yourselves heard
before we can't Go Fishin' at all.
Be kind to each other.
