Northwest Floridians consider
"hanging at the Beach" as part of
their culture. But the phrase will
take on a different meaning when
seventy-five artists who have been
invited to come to "hang" at the

show the wide variety of art that
an island like ours inspires," Jeff

County Takes Over Drainage Problems
Drainage problems on Pen-
sacola Beach, some long standing
and some relatively new are cur-
rently under evaluation by Escam-
bia County engineers, according
to Mike Langston, Baskerville
"The surveys have been helped
by recent rains," Langston said at
the September 8, SRIA meeting.
Drainage repairs to Via de
Luna were started by Escambia
County after a torrential rain on
"Aportion of the drainage sys-
tem has been cleared of sand and a
video camera was sent to show the
interior of the pipes," Langston
said. "The video did not reveal any
significant problems with the drain-
Now, Baskerville Donovan
is under contract with Escambia
County to continue to oversee the
cleaning and video taping of the
entire Via de Luna drainage system.
The project which had been trans-
ferred to the County for engineering

Lake Largo, as it has been
named by Beach residents, is created
after every heavy rain near the street
corners of Largo, Rio Vista, and
Panferio. It had caught the attention
of Commissioner Grover Robinson.
"The Commissioner has sent
County engineers to the Island to
evaluate the problems of stand-
ing water at this area after a rain,"
The proposed parking lot on
Fort Pickens Road seems to have
disappeared, rubbed out by the Spe-
cial Projects Committee chaired by
Dr. Thomas Campanella, who found
that additional stabilization on the
north and south sides of Ft. Pickens
will serve as a suitable solution to
"People have adapted and
parked differently," Campanella
said. "We may not need to do any
changes since this has been im-
proved and upgraded."
Paolo Ghio, Director of Devel-
opmental Services, who had met with
the County concerning Ft. Pickens
Road, cautioned the Authority board
that the County had reminded him in
no uncertain terms that Ft. Pickens
Road is a county road and the county
must be notified of any proposed
action the SRIA is considering. The
proposals may be submitted in the
form of a recommendation to the
County, but will not get rubber stamp
approval, according to Ghio.
Buck Lee, executive director of
the SRIA, added to the Engineer's
Report by announcing a trade-off.
The County will resurface some of
the Beach's roads and in exchange,
the SRIA will mow the County's
grass at the Fire Station.

Barefoot on the Beach
By Jane Waters Cooper 16
Did you know that if you check
into a hotel in New York City, you
may encounter a few sleeping
partners? Seems like bedbugs have
taken up residence in some of New
York's establishments, even those
well known for their elegance.
Although I wouldn't know a
bedbug if I saw one, I started think-
ing about some of the hotels I've
visited over the years.
Out of the hundreds of stays, I
seem to remember, not necessarily
the structure, but what happened
My first DisneyWorld experi-
ence was at the Polynesian Village
Resort with its gigantic roaring
waterfall in the lobby. I remember
the ceremonial fires in the courtyard
at night. I also recall our last night
there. After four days of doing EP-
COT and the Magic Kingdom, our
feet were covered with blisters and
Candy and I collapsed in the luxuri-
ous beds, and ate dinner there. How
much Disney can a body stand?
Frank and I once stayed at the
Holiday Inn in Alexandria, Virginia.
It was notorious for being the hotel
where royalty and political greats
hung out. You almost expected
Ronald Reagan or Bill Clinton to
join you in the austere polished
wood elevator. Didn't happen.
However, one night in the bar, I
confided to the gentleman sitting
on my left how poor the service was
and what a dismally awful meal we
had just eaten in the highly touted
state dining room. He politely asked
me my name which I politely gave
him. How was I to know he was the
GM of this revered place? The next
morning, a huge breakfast arrived
via room service, compliments of
the management. Oh well. You win
some. You lose some.
Reminds me of a huge hotel we
checked into in Beaumont, Texas.
After driving all day, we wanted
a quiet dinner and a night's sleep.
So, we entered the restaurant where
guys injeans were throwing cowboy
hats in the air while their boots
stomped to the country music. The
place was incredibly loud and jam
packed. The hostess found a table
for us where we sat a while before
our order was taken. After that, we
sat for a very long while waiting for
our meal. One plate arrived. Frank's
food never came and we never
could find the waiter again, so we
couldn't complain. We paid silently
for the two meals on our check at the
register, and hurried away from the
hat throwing boot stomping crowd.
There was one good thing about that
hotel, the music never followed us
to our room.
As a swimming meet referee,
I traveled to Guatemala City, and
based on the recommendation of the
coach who had invited me, I check
into an old South American hotel.
He wanted me to see local color. I
had just gone to bed amid the lumps
in the mattress, when the sounds of
Mariachi music penetrated the paper
thin walls of my room. I went to the
"Come in. Come in," beckoned
"No," I said as I explained to
him I need to sleep so I could get
up early to go referee a swim meet.
Try telling that story to a fellow
whose only English words were
"come in" which he kept repeating.
I finally found the front desk
where the person-in-charge was
asleep. I awakened him and was
moved to another room.
The next morning I ordered
what I thought would be scrambled
eggs and coffee. What I was served
was rice water and some kind of
pea soup. So much for local color.
I checked into an American hotel
Walt Disney never had to show
up at Sedona, Arizona, a town full
of spectacular red rock formations,
spiritual pools and sprays of water,
and lots of people sitting cross-
legged, talking to the Universe. No
way could man improve on God's
creations. The hotel was basic, had
a great view of the biggest red rock
I've ever seen. It had an excellent
dining room and wine list. And I
must admit I was completely thrilled
to carry on a discussion with the
Sooner or later, everyone goes
to the Bahamas. Liz and I took a trip
there once and stayed at the lovely
Princess Hotel in Freeport. The
people in that hotel had the tourist
routine down pat. They didn't really
have to be nice to us since there was
no tipping, but they were great any-
way. The hotel was lovely because
it was across the street from a huge
casino and a straw market where
Kahlua was at $3 a bottle. When it
was time to leave, we headed for
the Bahamian Airport, a tiny barren
place. We went through customs

there, boarded our plane and settled
in our seats. Our seat mate was a
young handsome man who chatted
with us and asked endless ques-
tions all the way to New Orleans.
He followed us off the plane and
watched as Customs took a lot of
time scrutinizing our bags. At least,
our underwear didn't spill out on
the table. Finally, he turned to us
and said, "Have a good trip back to
Ariola Drive on Pensacola Beach."
Liz and I had figured out by
then that he was a government of-
ficial who thought we were bringing
back something other than Kahlua
since our passports reflected trips to
Guatemala, Colombia and Mexico,
"Well, Mom, we sure didn't
make his day," Liz said as we ne-
gotiated our way through the city

some horror stories about hotels

It's sad but true. The Trivia
Master wanted to know which
among the developed countries was
the laziest in his question in the last
issue. The correct answer is the
United States of America and the
correct answer was first submitted
by Beverly McCay.
Bev emailed "I saw a blurb
recently on MSNBC and it really
struck me. We've come a long way
since being the most industrial. It
also mentioned the laziest state was
Louisiana. Might explain why it's
Pensacola Beach's number one state
for visitors. Do I really get a shirt?"
Yes, Bev, you get the shirt.
Incidentally, the top ten laziest
countries are USA, Canada, Bel-
gium, Turkey, Great Britain, Poland,
Mexico, France, Germany and Por-
tugal. The source: The Daily Beast.
Kim Schmidt was the runner

Sleepless In South Harbour -
New Noises Disturb Area
Objections to noise in the
neighborhood once again reached
the ears of the members of the
Santa Rosa Island Authority at their
September 8 board meeting.
This time the problem arose in
a familiar setting with a different
bar. Sleepless neighbors living in
LaCaribe subdivision and South
Harbour brought their complaints
against the Cabana Hotel for con-
structing and operating an outdoor
As the story unfolded, the
SRIA discovered that the structure
was being built without a permit
and they had no permit to operate a
bar. Once the permitting procedure
has been corrected, the hotel owner
will be faced with solving the noise
"I have a right to do it," owner
of the hotel Richard McAlpin said.
"No one is more concerned than I
am about the noise for the comfort
of my guests. I am the last guy
who wants to create more noise.
We are asking for the same as all
our neighboring businesses as far
as the noise ordinance will allow."
The nearby Sandshaker had
already experienced the wrath of
its neighbors in South Harbour,
but settled the noise problem by
making expensive changes in the
structure of their outdoor facility.
Suggestions were made to al-
low the Cabana Bar to operate with-
out bands, to shut the entertainment
off at 10 p.m. as other hotels do, or
to discuss the matter further. It was
voted to send it to committee and
have staff continue to work with the
parties involved to seek solutions.
Other requests which have
been plaguing the Authority came
to the table for discussion once
again. Horizon Beach Service
made a request to place four stor-
age boxes on the Beach in front
of Margaritaville. The new hotel
has provided storage space for the
service company and does not favor
storage boxes on the Beach.
Lawrence Porto, owner of
Horizon Beach Service, is asking
permission to haul his amenities
back and forth in an ATV.
The problem with this is safety,
as Bob West, SRIA Safety Director
"Overall, the more we mini-
mize the interaction with people and
vehicles the better," he said.
Board member Vernon Prather
made a motion to ask staff to come
back to the next meeting with in-
formation on a plan which would
be acceptable. It would include a
permit application, safety class,
operation protocol, hours of opera-
tion, and insurance.
Staff will bring back informa-
tion for discussion at the next meet-
ing. The request for the storage
boxes has been tabled.
Alvin's Island's request to
build twelve display boxes on
the outside of the building was
approved by a vote of 5 to 1 with
Dr. Thomas Campanella voting
Ellis Bullock of Bullock As-
sociates, gave a presentation on
tourism and advertising during

tract with the SRIA to conduct its
"The money is spent on event
ads, publicity, guides and advertis-
ing online, a visitor's guide map
plus Beach websites," he said.
"There are still some percep-
tion problems," Bullock said.
"But, your previous inquiry about
dedicating another $50,000 to ad-
vertising should wait."
He recommended that the

Board hold its $50,000 until Janu-
ary. He said that more BP funding
has been applied for.
Bullock commented that he
believed that the American Ex-
press Gift Card program appeared
to be successful. Maureen LaMar,
executive director of the Pensacola
Beach Chamber, agreed. She re-
ported that the program which was
funded by BP had to be shut down
within one week after it launched
because it was so successful.
"There were 3419 reservations
completed and 1095 gift cards had
been issued by September 8," she
said. "This will make a significant
impact on our Beach economy."
The gift cards were awarded to
those who applied to the program
online prior to registering to stay at
a Pensacola Beach hotel. The stay
must be complete by September 30.
Buck Lee, SRIA executive
director, shared more good news
when he said the Beach was no
longer in a State of Emergency, so
the Board could allow the oil spill
related declaration to expire.

that the Shaker will have a VIP tent

I am still a bit frustrated and
confused about the entire "free

free day all day, why do we even
need a ticket? I don't understand
why anyone can't be there on the
public beach? How canyou refuse
someone entry when it's a free con-

concert that's free, but come on.

your cell phone number. Geez, I
have never been required to give
that much personal info when actu-
ally purchasing a ticket (and I have
purchased many tickets just to see
Willie Nelson in concert).
Thirdly, why were we limited
to only 2 tickets when there are
20,000 to be given away (per their
advertisements)? Why not allow
people to get an extra one for a
friend? I didn't take an actual
physical count, but I'm pretty sure
there were not 9,999 people in line
behind me. Oh, I know they were
also being given away downtown,
but still; that's a lot of tickets!
We have even more fun stuff
coming up; and quickly. Art and
Wine Weekend, Songwriters Festi-
val and a triathlon, although I don't
know why anyone would want to
get up so early to go swim, bike and
run all over the island. To each his
own. Keep Island Times handy, so
you won't miss anything.
I have a great tip this week. It
comes from Claire and Eric Mar-
cey. Claire is a previous Krewe of
Wrecks Queen but they have since
moved away. They miss us (and
the Island) immensely; however
they are closer to their grandchil-
dren and that's more important
According to Claire, Eric
walked outside leaving a cooking
pot on the stove. Yeah, it burned
but luckily did not start a fire. The
only damage was to Claire's brand
new expensive pot. Eric suggested
they try soaking it with four ef-
fervescent tablets and Claire is
happy to report they worked like a

charm. They completely cleaned
the burnt stuff off the bottom of
the pot. Great thinking and a good
save for Eric.
This weeks' recipe is one of
my own and I will be making these
for the SOB Tent at the Art & Wine
Weekend, Oct. 2-3. We all decided
to bring back our infamous Bake
Sale. Make plans now to stop by

goodies. Right now, we need to
2 Cups butter or margarine (softened)
1 lb. block Cheddar Cheese, freshly

1/2 tsp. Paprika

Beat butter and shredded
cheddar cheese with an electric
mixer until well blended (medium

ingredients, beating until blended.
Put dough into a plastic decorator
bag (or you can use butcher paper
rolled into a cone shape). I like
to use a cake decorator tip that's
placed in the bag before dough is
added. Cut a hole just large enough
for the tip to protrude from the bag.
Squeeze 2 inch strips of dough onto

Man, it was a lot easier to write
an article when a good portion of it
dealt with my history. Here is the
true test; can I come up with new
material every few weeks? Another
challenge is anticipating what will
be on people's mind a week ahead of
time. Since I do not have the ability
to look into the future, I will rely
upon the liturgical calendar to pro-
vide me with scriptural inspiration.
This article will focus upon
the Gospel according to Luke 16:
19-31; the parable of Lazarus and
the rich man. I will leave it to you
to pull out your Bible and read the
passage yourself or utilize the tool
known as the Internet to read this
Now that you have read the
I have always loved the beau-
tiful, sandy beaches and gorgeous
Gulf waters belonging to Pen-
sacola Beach. I discovered them
one weekend when I was 14 years
old and competing in a swim meet
at Pensacola Junior College. Many
years later I have discovered another
love that I have of the topography
of our beautiful United States the
mountains of Tennessee. There is no
doubt in my mind that I am a true
hillbilly, and I wear that title with
My people the Scots came
over from the British Kingdom and
settled in the Appalachian Moun-
tains from Virginia to Tennessee.
And all Americans need to take a
minute and thank the Scots because
we might not be Americans today
if it weren't for them. These coura-
geous, stalwart and fiercely inde-
pendent folks were not happy in the
United Kingdom under British rule.
They made a decision to come here
and entered through Philadelphia
only to be met with disdain from
the other groups who had arrived
earlier. The Scots were considered
passage, you find yourself wonder-
ing, is this going to be one of those
classic guilt trips that only leads to
petition for money for the poor? I
assure you that is not the intention
of breaking open this particular
scripture, but to allow us to journey
deeper into the mystery of Christ.
We must look at the punch-line, "If
they will not listen to Moses and
the prophets, neither will they be
persuaded if someone should rise
from the dead."
Christ has risen from the
dead...what difference has it re-
ally made in our lives? I want you
to look back on the first moment
you realized what a great gift we
have received through the redeem-
ing acts of our savior Jesus Christ.
a wild unruly bunch, something that
the British understood. The British
never could control the Scottish.
Anyway these people started to
branch out into the mountains and
it was in Tennessee that they fought
both the Iroquois and the Cherokee
for twenty years finally winning the
right to live in the mountains. Both
groups suffered many casualties,
but the tribes had taught the clans-
men valuable lessons in fighting. It
was about this time that the patriots
under General George Washington
were fighting the British, to once
and for all, free the colonists from
British rule. Things were not going
well for our forces and the tide was
turning as BritishMajor Patrick Fer-
guson marched down to Charleston,
South Carolina and took our rebel
forces out. He continued his march
with 1300 British troops heading on
up to King's Mountain in Northeast
Tennessee. The British posted a sign
for the Scots, and it read as follows,
"If you do not desist, we will hang
your leaders and lay waste to your

We find ourselves challenged to
live out fully our lives in the light
of Christ. The sin of the rich man
is not greed as much as it is com-
Have we settled for what has
been placed before us or do we find
ourselves seeking to live radically
the Gospel, to live radically in the
light of Christ? When it comes to
prayer, is it limited to grace before
meals or when your team is kicking
a field goal?
Let us challenge each other
to move from the mediocrity of
a stale prayer life to the exciting
challenge of growing deeper into
our relationship with the one who
gave of himself completely that we
might have life.
a group who had fought the British
in England, fought the Iroquois and
Cherokee, and were finally getting
on with their lives. These mountain
men called out to the militias and
900 woodsmen showed up with
animal skins on their backs and
their hunting rifles. They encircled
King's Mountain and in one hour
and five minutes, they had killed
150 British and captured the rest.
The British didn't know what
hit them with the guerilla tactics
the mountain men used. They
had learned from the fiercest and
shrewdest of fighters the Iroquois
and Cherokee! The Scots had only
suffered 28 casualties. All this and
no leader they just worked well
as a group.
The news was passed onto Gen-
eral Washington. This group of rug-
ged woodsmen not only defeated the
British troops, they whipped them!
A year later the British surrendered.
So remember that bit of history
the next time you think about our
freedom, the sacrifices made by
many to achieve it and the beauty
of this country.

Make an unforgettable family memory TODAYwith Blue Marlin!
So you've made it through
the swim, survived the bike and
now have the last leg of the Santa
Rosa Island Triathlon (SRI TRI) to
tackle the run. The good news is,
it's 3.1 miles or a 5K. The course is
flat (duh!) and filled with cheering
spectators urging you on.
The uniqueness of the running
leg of a triathlon is that you're run-
ning immediately after the bike leg.
That means that you may feel a bit
"stiff' when running those first few
hundred meters. The best way to
train your body for this awkward
feeling is to practice this before the
race. So after you get back from a
ride on your bike, throw some run-
ning shoes and visor on and go for a
"transition" run for 5 or 10 minutes.
We call this combined training of
biking followed immediately by
running a "Brick" session. Just
doing a handful of these will help
your body adapt to this unique
combination of muscle movements
The course will take you east
and through some of the residential
Beach neighborhoods and back to
the finish line. Now if you have
never experienced a triathlon finish
line, you will fall in love with it!
There really is none better. As you
run down the "chute," make sure
you high-five everyone and smile
for your finishing picture! And the
fun won't end there. There will
be music, fantastic food and great
camaraderie at the post race party.
It is a wonderful event.
Okay, so if you haven't signed
up, go do it! If you're not sure you
can do this by yourself, why not get
some friends or family and enter as
a team? And once you finishyou're
first triathlon, you'll be hooked.
If you are a new triathlete or a
long time multisport competitor you
can call us for training sessions at
850-564-8745. We'll work together
to help you achieve new goals and
dreams. See you on the course!

DayAt Gulflslands Live OakArea
Locals will have a chance to
celebrate International Cleanup
and Public Lands Day along with
participating in a nationwide "Na-
tional Park Service Volunteer Day"
Saturday, September 25 at Gulf
Islands Live Oak Area in Gulf
Breeze. Park volunteers will clean
beaches and provide trail main-
tenance from 8 a.m. until noon.
Volunteers should meet at the
south side picnic pavilion, located
just east of the Visitors Center, 2
miles east of Gulf Breeze on U.S.
They are advised to bring
drinking water and to wear closed
toe shoes and sunscreen. Families,
individuals, businesses, schools
and community groups are all invit-
ed. Upon arrival, contact the site
captain to register and receive trash
bags, data cards and information.
This cleanup effort results in
not only beautifying and making
the beaches safer for humans and
wildlife, but also documents the col-
lected debris to determine its source
in an effort to reduce the incredible
volume of trash washing ashore.
"Our goal isn't just to clean
the beaches, it is to educate people

They Write The Songs That Make The Whole World Sing
You sing their lyrics. You hum
their tunes. Now you can meet the
songwriters in person during the
second annual Pensacola Beach
Songwriters Festival. Performances
begin Tuesday, September 28 and
continue through October 3 at
eleven Pensacola Beach locations.
Sixty songwriters from across
the country will bring their music to
the island. Among them are Gram-
my Award winner Wayne Carson
Thompson who wrote Willie Nel-
son's Always On My Mind; lyricist
MiltonL. Brown who found success
writing songs for Clint Eastwood's
movies, and Larry Cordle who had
songs recorded by Ricky Skaggs,
Garth Brooks, Alison Krauss, Alan
Jackson and George Strait.
Long time music fans will
want to hear Alex Call, hit artist
and songwriter for over thirty years.
His Billboard hits include the leg-
endary, iconic "867 5309", Jenny
by Tommy Tutone; and Perfect
World and Power of Love by Huey
Lewis and the News. Gary Talley,
who was the original lead guitarist
for the Grammy-nominated group,
The Box Tops will play at Paradise,
the Shaker and Landshark Landing.
Talley continued his music career
in stellar fashion performing and
recording with such legends as Wil-
lie Nelson, Billy Preston, Tammy
Wynette and Waylon Jennings.
You will want to check "yes"
when Dana Hunt Black takes the
stage at Lillo's October 1. She has
written for George Strait since he
recorded her number one hit, Check
Yes or No in 1995. Her song Write
This Down proved to be another big
hit for Strait staying at Number One
for four weeks in 1999.
Local favorites Dennis Gos-
sman, Paul Killough and Ronnie
Miller will perform during the
festival. Former Pensacola Beach
business owner and Reunion Band
member Ross Orenstein will share
the Paradise Bar and Grill stage at
4:30, Sunday, October 3 with na-
tional recording artist Jim Pasquale.
"The Songwriters look forward
to performing for the festival fans
on Pensacola Beach," said Reneda
Cross, promoter. "In addition to
entertaining the crowds, we have a
mission to continue music education
in the school. Music is so important
in our lives and we want to be sure
that the arts, particularly music, stay
in the schools."
To support that goal, the Fes-
tival is hosting the first ever Song-
writer-Celebrity Mini Golf Tourna-
ment. Tiki Island's eighteen-hole
course will be full of songwriters,
Blue Angels support crew and
school kids, Thursday, September
30 at 11 a.m. The proceeds from the
tourney will be donated to the Beach
School and Gulf Breeze Schools. To
sign up, call 850-341-0889.
Additional events include a
Welcome Songwriters party at
Sabine Sandbar on September 29,
music workshop at Blue Angels
Music and a WSRE Studio Amped
session. Songwriters will perform
aboard the Wine and Song Trolley
during the Beach Chamber's Art and
Wine Weekend, Oct. 2-3.

Texas Hold 'Em Returns To Tuesdays
For the first time ever, Cast-
aways will host the Texas Hold 'Em
4444 Fun games on Tuesday night
beginning September 28. The first
deal begins at 7 p.m. central beach
time, so don't be late.
"This is a welcoming, spacious
location with plenty of parking,"
said Rick Uzdevenes, poker pro-
moter. "Let the chips fall where
they may on Tuesday nights as we
cast off into a new chapter of poker
history on the Boardwalk."
Monday night games have
become popular for players and
their following of fans at the Sand-
shaker Lounge. September 6 had
players asking, "Who dat gonna
beat Tommy Grice?" Grice battled
a star-studded line up of hopefuls
and faced off against Hammering
Hank Misiak at the final table. After
a forty minute showdown, Tommy
claimed his fourth winner's title
with Misiak in second place.
Misiak would get his day in
the Shaker's winners circle on
September 13 when he outlasted
famous names in Beach poker like
Tex Atkinson and Mike Wood.
Grice was in the final mix, too, but
came up short.
Players hope the luck of the
Irish rubs off on them when they
take their seats at Paddy O'Leary's
on Thursday and Sunday nights in
Pensacola Beach's historic district.
Ted Gorder had all the chips on
September 2 with new mom Jenny
Doherty in second place.
Todd Lentini was the top player
on September 5. Sara Mandel was
the runner-up and Todd's mom
Debra Lentini was third. The poker
gang was helping Bob and Debra
Lentini celebrate their thirty-ninth
wedding anniversary. Congrats.
Jackie Harrison grabbed first
place ahead of a field of good
players including Mike Wood who
settled for second place on Sep-
From The Chip Stack
Poker players welcomed short
stack Coralyne Jenna Lewis to the
Texas Hold 'Em family. She was
born to Jenny Doherty and Trace
Lewis on June 27.
BigFoot took a break on his summer-long tour of Santa Rosa Island to relax
and read at this popular beach location. If you can be the first person to correctly
identify BigFoot's where about and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org then you
will win a one-of-a-kind BigFoot t-shirt. Is Island Times on his summer reading list?

Smokin' hot weather has
caused all kinds of wonderful
things to happen along the coast.
A couple of nice Bull Dolphin
were caught just a few miles off
Anglers Barry Meredith and
Jay Monzingo had a great trip
into the Gulf and some nice in-
shore catches. They reeled in
Flounder and Grouper while
fishing in Pensacola Bay. King
Mackerel are being landed in the
Bay and Sound as they hammer
the massive schools of Mullet
moving around the system.
Gulf Breeze Bait and Tack-
le Inshore Slam anglers fished
until the close of August trying
to hook the big Trout, Redfish
and Flounder that would secure
their names at the top of the lea-
derboard. When the lines were
Lady Anglers Seek Title At Queen of Kings Tourney
pulled from the water Dale Hall
was the winner with an aggre-
gate weight of 17.48 pounds.
Randy Westmoreland, who was
the leader for a few weeks, fin-
ished in second place with his
three-fish combined weight of
George Shelton was third
with 16.01 pounds and Eric Gill
was fourth with 15.56; Jeff Pol-
lard rounded out the top five with
a total catch of 15.07 pounds.
Lady Angler Mary Pollard
reeled in 14.61 pounds of fish to
win the women's division. Con-
grats to all who fished and to
those who earned the top awards.
Time to get out there. I am
seeing schools of Redfish tip-
ping their tails all around the old
piers in the evening, so do your-
self a favor and Go Fishin'.
The Queen of Kings Fish-
ing Tournament, which had been
spoiled by oil, has been resched-
uled for September 24-25 at Para-
dise Bar and Grill.
Pensacola-based McGraw In-
surance Services and Nationwide
are the event sponsors. A manda-
tory captain and anglers meeting
will take place on Friday, Sept. 24
at 6:30 p.m. at Paradise. Anglers
will fish all day on Saturday, with
the weigh-in from 5 to 7 p.m. The
entry fee is $150 per boat with a
$2,000 first place prize.
The beaches have been mostly
oil free for weeks. Federal fishing
waters -- those more than 9 miles
from shore -- opened September 3
to anglers from Pensacola to Mis-
sissippi. The fish are biting and
things are starting to get back to
some sense of normalcy for those
in the area that get their recreation
from the Gulf of Mexico.
While men are allowed to be
part of the crew they may drive
the boat, bait hooks and gaff fish
- the women are the only ones
allowed to touch the rod and reel
once a fish strikes.
