the music department," she said. "I
have used this money to buy music,

Barefoot on the Beach


By Jane Waters Cooper '.%.


Fun was the first, last and
middle name of those of us who
roamed the Beach together dur-
ing the seventies and eighties. We
could take nothing, mold it into
something, and laugh all day about
the result. One of these somethings
was the Rusty Car Contest, a two-
hour festival which has never had
an equal. The idea originated with
my own Volare station wagon
which came to the Beach, wearing
the nicks and bruises all cars even-
tually get in New Orleans. Those
small imperfections soon rusted
into gaping holes in the car's ex-
terior. Not a pretty sight. I named
it the Rustmobile, and I honored
the car one cold November morn-
ing by starting the first ever Rusty
Car Contest. The event, sponsored
by The Islander Newspaper took
place in front of Nero's which is
now Paddy O'Leary's. The rules
were simple. There was no entry
fee. The car had to be in running
condition and obviously had to
be a victim of the Beach's harsh
climate.


Judging was set for ten a.m.
and Nero's would give the partici-
pants free breakfast, a large pizza
and a coke. Very nourishing.
Pete Hastings, Nero's man-
ager, arrived early and set a table
and two chairs outside the door for
the judges. The two judges who
would occupy these special seats
would be Denise Keever, a recent
graduate of the Powder Puff Me-
chanics course at PJC, and Chuck
Steele, a former Marine pilot, and
publisher of The Sandspur.
Soon, about a half dozen
competitors came chugging to the
judging area. Just barely. What
a derelict display of nuts, bolts,
and rust.
Everything was almost ready.
Pete hung up a sign he had painted.
"Ashes to Ashes and Rust to Rust."
And then set about preparing the
pizza.
A few spectators, wearing
winter knit caps, shorts, and wooly
sweatshirts came to see the show.
Chuck and Denise began the
serious business of judging. It took


quite a while.
Finally, about the time we all
had turned blue from the blustery
day, Chuck proclaimed Judy Le
Bum L'Oignon, the winner for
the car with the biggest, rustiest
wound of all, a gigantic hole in
the roof. Judy brought her car
with the sun roof made by nature
back the next year and won first
place again.
I made the awards from round
wooden cutting boards. I had
decorated them with artistic faces
made of rusty bottle caps and mis-
cellaneous pieces of rust I found
under my car in my driveway.
After the awards ceremony, most
of us left. I got in the Rustmobile,
adjusted the butterfly choke, and
off we went home.
By my standards, back then,
this celebration was a success. We
all had fun, even the owners of the
rusty cars as they wheezed their
way out of the parking lot.
The following year, I added
a new category, Rusty Bikes. Ev-


erything else remained the same.
Except there were a lot of rusty
bikes which drew a much larger
crowd and Pete had to prepare two
breakfast pizzas. Chuck LeBum
won the bike contest and he and
Judy happily took their third cut-
ting board trophy home.
Over the next couple of years,
my car grew into the "beach eye-
sore" with its rust blooms literally
covering the exterior.
Although I knew The Rustmo-
bile would not survive for another
year, I began to have delusions of
grandeur about the contests. Imag-
ine running it into two days with
lots of categories, forks, knives,
spoons, hoes, rakes, shovels,
needles, pins, thimbles. Blue grass
bands would be playing and Pete
wouldn't be able to keep up with
all the pizza customers.
Alas. Those thoughts were
more delusional than practical.
Just after the final year, I bought a
brand new Chevrolet truck, I never
let a drop of rust begin its sinis-


ter journey on that car. But, the
mother motivator was gone. No
reason to go on with the contest.
The event went out in a blaze
of glory. Someone entered a huge,
old extremely rusty van. He also
brought a sledge hammer and sold
tickets to individuals to smash his
van. He raised $200 for charity.
On a somber note, I put a
wreath of flowers on the wind-
shield of The Rustmobile, took a
photo and ran it on the front page
of The Islander Newspaper. "Rust
in Peace" said the headline.
The car wanted to donate
her body parts, so Harry Gow-
ens towed her off the island. I
don't know if he couldn't make
her butterfly choke work or if he
didn't want to be seen driving the
Beach's supreme derelict.
The Rusty Car Contest was a
NASCAR moment for the Beach
family. It drew us together in
the kind of silly event which we
cherished. Unfortunately, it all just
rusted away.

Louise Turner, who is the proud
grandmother of the winning mixolo-
gist in Pensacola Beach Songwriters
Drink Contest, sent Island Times
a note correcting the spelling of
her grandson's name. The brave
bartender, who faced the panel of
discerning judges, is Jarrett Turner,
not Jarred, as was published. Suffice
to say the mistake may stem from
the newspaper publisher serving as
a judge in the Jack Daniels based
drink contest.

They are Island natives but
these two girls did not learn the
fine art ofbeachbumming. Melanie
Albert, who served as a Deckhand in
the 2010 Krewe of Wrecks Court, is
juggling a full course load at college
along with herjob at Crab's, We Got
'Em. Not to be outdone, her sister
Michelle is attending Pensacola
State College, and working at Hol-
listers in Cordova Mall. Michelle
also has a part-time gig as a nanny
on the Beach. The two industrious
young ladies are the daughters of
Monica Kellner and Dr. FranAlbert.
Y
Sometimes her pretty face
is obscured by her ever-present
camera, but that's how most people
recognize DJ Zemenick, Barrier
Island Girl photog and blogger. She
has been traveling to see family in
Texas and Tennessee; and cruis-
ing the islands this summer, but
she announced that she spent her
October 11 birthday in her favorite
place - the sandy beach of Santa
Rosa Island.

Beach residents John Pinzino
and Nan Harper just returned from
a trip to Plymouth, Massachusetts
to attend a family wedding. Friend
John on Facebook if you want to see
photos of the affair.

John Turk, whose wife Tara
is the fourth grade teacher at the
Beach School, is ready to face off
again at the Texas Hold 'Em 4444
Fun tourney on October 23. He
played his cards close to his vest last


year until the Florida Gators game
started, then his attention drifted
from the felt to the gridiron. And, in
case you are wondering, the Gators
do not play on October 23, so watch
out for Texas Hold 'Em Turk.

Maria Weisnicht took a quick
break from launching the Greek
Fest publicity campaign to set sail
October 9-10 on the open seas. The
Beach sailor is among the Race for
the Roses competitors each year.
When not sailing, Maria is captain-
ing the ship as the CEO of Computer
Education Design.

Seventh grade Villa Sabine
resident Jace Amberson is having
a blast playing football this year.
His Gulf Breeze Sports Association
team has four victories and only one
loss so far this season, but has three
tough opponents upcoming, accord-
ing to his mom Kristin.
T
Brandon Mattair, who dedi-
cates three to four hours each after-
noon to his job as the Gulf Breeze
High Band coach, spends the rest
of his time as a drummer in a local
rock band. One of his drumming
colleagues, Jack Holway, is pre-
paring to audition for two different
groups next month, in addition to his
studies at Middle Tennessee State
University in Murfreesboro. Both
musicians are graduates of Gulf
Breeze High.

Amy Martin celebrates her
birthday with pointed witch hats and
candles in pumpkins. Talk around
the witch's caldron is that there's
a spooktacular celebration planned
for the Beach gal this year.

Condolences to John Parrish
of Pensacola Beach who lost his
father Dan Louis Parrish on Mon-
day, October 11 in Conroe, Texas
after a battle with ALS. Services
were held on Thursday, October
14. Donations may be made in his
honor to the Methodist Neurological

For Whom The Wedding Bells Toll


The Santa Rosa Island Author-
ity did not have any remedies for a
gnarly problem which came before
their Board at the October 13 meet-
ing. A Catch-22, which has been
cooking violently for an entire year,
is the use ofAriola Drive homes for
large wedding parties. These parties
have created a plethora of problems,
including loud noises, inappropriate
behavior, traffic snarls, and over-
loads of garbage. To date the SRIA
has tried and is still trying to accom-
modate both sides of this dilemma.
So far, to no avail.
At their meeting last Wednes-
day, the matter has now resolved
itself to the concept of whether or
not a commercial business is being
operated in a residential zone.
"We have someone running a
commercial business in a residential
area," said Dave Pavlock, board
member. "Zoning is there to protect
residents who have made an invest-
ment in the place they live."
Board Member Ed Guernsey
took the opposite view when he
said, "When you live on the Beach
you take some sugar with some
salt. It ain't gonna be perfect all
the time. I am in favor of weddings
and it is a fabulous economic boost
to the beach and the businesses on
the Beach. I don't see anything in
the ordinances which prohibit this
activity."
The Board finally voted unani-


mously to ask the attorney to indi-
cate that the $1000 security deposit
previously levied against the owners
be waived this one time.
The SRIApolicy says that noise
and music must stop at 11 p.m. This
time may be changed to 9 p.m. This
proposal will be brought before the
Administrative Committee at the
October 27 meeting.
Oil spill workers will finally get
the chance to dig up the oil, hidden
beneath the pristine white sand on
the beach.
"The permitting process is
almost complete which will allow
us to dig and clean more than six
inches below the sand's surface,"
Buck Lee, executive director, said.
Lee has been pushing for this
decision for months.
Lee has received a number of
calls regarding inequities in the
claims process.
"Ken Feinberg, who was ap-
pointed to administer the claims
process, is doing a terrible job,"
he said. "Business owners are not
being taken care of. Fishermen and
servers are getting money but not
their bosses."
Mike Stebbins, the Board's
attorney, reported that there are
35 residential leases with defaults
pending.
Stebbins also said the Beach
Marina has filed for Chapter 11
reorganization. The meeting of the


Learn By The Light of the Moon


The moon will glisten upon the
Gulf of Mexico and light the way
for the Full Moon Walk, Friday,
October 22 at Fort Pickens. The
walk begins at 6:30 p.m. at Langdon
Beach on the Gulfside of the park.
Participants should dress in
comfortable shoes and clothes suit-
able for the evening temperatures.
The event lasts approximately one
hour and will feature information
about the importance of the dark
skies to the park's endangered sea
turtles.
Sea turtles nest on Santa Rosa
Island and hatchlings use the moon's
light to direct them to the Gulf. Ar-
tificial lights can sidetrack the little


sea turtles from their intended des-
tination. Pollution, lighted beaches,
and loss of nesting habitat have
contributed to the drastic decline in
recent years in the numbers of sea
turtles. Area officials and residents
are making an effort to reduce light
pollution.
To assist the hatchlings, Park
officials and volunteers monitor
the beaches for nests and guard
them throughout incubation. Sea
turtle nesting season lasts until
November 1.
There is an $8 entrance fee for
access to Fort Pickens. There is no
charge for the Walk. For more infor-
mation, call 850-934-2600.


creditors is in November and the
attorney will continue to update
the Board.
A report came from Maureen
LaMar, Beach Chamber Executive
Director, which reflected that 3010
visitors came through the Visitor's
Center in September of 2010, as
opposed to 1854 in 2009.
Tammy Bohannon, chairman,
noted that the large increase must be
due to the voucher program and the
two events the Beach Chamber held
which generated business. Forty
one percent of the guests noted that
they had been to Pensacola Beach
previously.
Mike Langston, Baskerville
Donovan Engineers, gave the fol-
lowing information in his reports:
i Little Sabine Bay Restora-
tion: The project is substantially
complete and operational with a few
close-out details.
a Reclaimed Water: On sched-
ule and should be available for ir-
rigation by the end of October. This
is an ECUA project.
a Drainage: The report hasbeen


delivered to the SRIA and to Escam-
bia County. The County is in the
process of reviewing cost estimates
to design improvements to Corto
and Largo Drives.

livered last week.

There's nothing like spending
seven hours on a bus to meet new
people and make friends. I think
we had around 50 on the Grand Ole
Opry trip, although it seemed much
closer to 200 at times.
I'm amazed how some people
can manage to sleep even through
the noise on the bus; and do it so
quietly and delicately. Not me -
heck, I have enough problems trying
to sleep in the privacy of my own
home. No way will you ever catch
me sleeping in public. First of all,
I'm not a delicate or light snorer; I
make atrocious noises and that's not
counting the fact that I move around
a lot. Once, I moved so much in my
sleep, that I actually lost five pounds
in one month. I would not recom-
mend this as a weight loss program,
it is actually very tiring.
We reached our motel with
barely enough time to check in
and change clothes after we were
all given the "do' s and don't" by
Zebra Lady. I think her name was
Brenda, but she picked Christine
Hewerdine and me out of the entire
bus group saying, "These two are

going to be trouble. I can tell. Keep
an eye on them!"
I think we must have a tattoo
that only very smart people can see,
but Christine thinks it's because
we're short. Who knows?
I'm not sure whose eye was
supposed to be watching, but I do
know they failed miserably. But we
managed to arrive at the Opry with
time to spare (and time to quench
our thirst) before T Bubba Bechtol's
Comedy Show. We had time to race
back to the motel for food, more
thirst quenching, a clothing change
and back on the bus for the 9:30
Opry Show.
We were absolutely wowed
by Trace Atkins along with Dolly
Parton and Bubba's comedy. Taylor
Swift also appeared to the absolute
delight of the younger children.
They adore her. She is very gra-
cious in accepting that and giving
back to them. It was a completely
sold out house and a wonderful
85th Birthday Celebration complete
with dropping balloons and a huge
(not real) birthday cake. Thanks
to Tarsha Bechtol for organizing,

handling all the whining with her
usual aplomb and getting those great
seats. Christine and I were on Row
C with a great view of the stage!
What a fabulous trip, except
for my packing skills. Somehow,
I always end up with an entire
suitcase full of nothing suitable to
wear in the current weather zone.
Whatever the temperature is at my
final destination, my suitcase only
holds items for the exact opposite
climate. How does that always
happen? Next time, I'm hiring a
professional packer so I will have
someone else to blame. I can hardly
wait for Tarsha to plan our next trip
which will be to see a Saints game
in New Orleans.
There are others events to at-
tend before that trip can take place;
like the first Krewe of Wrecks
meeting at Sabine Sandbar on Oct.
25. It's the Halloween Costume
Party and it would be a lot of fun if
more people would wear costumes!
The SOB's join the Mystic Krewe
of Nereids in presenting our best
and latest accoutrements of our
Bewitching Hours!
We always have the best in the
newest broom transportation up-
dates, including flying and parking
lights. Last year Lila Cox sported
the latest in hybrids. Lack of partici-
pation and competition has insured
our win of the Costume Contest for
the last severalyears. We are hoping
for, encouraging and challenging
other Krewes and current Wrecks
members for more participation and
support for the Krewe this year. So,
c'mon people, let's get ready to play.
With Halloweenjust around the


corer, this week's recipe is perfect
for little hands to join Mom or Dad
in the kitchen. It's great fun and
encourages imagination and even
a little magic. I believe everyone
needs a little magic in their lives!
So, let's cook....

Halloween Cookies
1 or 2 rolls cookie dough (sugar or
chocolate dough is best)
Licorice sticks
Twizzler sticks
Candy decorating dots
Red hots
Candy corn
Decorator icing w/decorator tips
Fairy Dust (colored sugar sprinkles)

Make sure cookie dough is well
chilled (for easier handling). Cover
work surface with wax paper (for
easy clean-up). Mom orDad should
slice cookie dough into circles
about a 1/4 in thick. Kids can help
with making smaller circles in the
dough using shot glasses (empty of
course!). Let kids decide what to
make - i.e. cats can be made from
chocolate cookie dough using a big
and a smaller circle for the head.
Then flatten and shape licorice stick
pieces to make ears, whiskers and
tail (or add a witch hat on cat). Use
dots and candies for eyes and teeth.
Let your imagination have a blast!
Bake as directed on cookie package
(experiment, since some candies
will not bake well and must be
added after baking is complete but
before the cookies cool too much).
Enjoy, share and get your cos-
tumes ready!
See ya in the kitchen....

"j Mostly '

Nuts

I <& Bolts



By
Candace Segar


I think there is nothing better
than being seduced by a scent or
a taste. It is especially powerful
when both merge and take over
one's senses. What has me drool-
ing longingly, with just the mere
thought of my seducer making me
beg for more?
Ahhh, it is dark chocolate
wrapped in confectioners sugar
with lavender mixed in. I love each
ingredient on an individual basis,
but together- ooh la la - C'est
magnifique! What stands out for
me though is the lavender. It re-
minds me of two things - a candy
called Violets which I ate tons of
as a kid, and the wonderful world
of Patchouli/Lavender soap found
only at Pandora's. I do think the
lavender is a catalyst. It brings out
the most wonderful fragrance, and
this makes sense, because it is a part
of the mint family.
The other issue is the order in
which this delicacy hits your taste
buds. The texture of the confection-
ers sugar strikes first. That sweet-
ness is so strong yet brief as it runs
along your taste buds. Next comes
the all powerful dark chocolate
which is quite soft as it gently melts
inyour mouth with its strong flavor.
The mouth and brain register delight
as the chocolate works its magic.
With the world in so many dif-
ferent states of chaos, there is a need
to sometimes focus on the beautiful
things in life. Certainly this is one
of them. Bon Appetite!

It is that time of year again
when kids dress up and prowl the
streets looking for treats. We also
find a plethora of scary movies.
These movies highlight the work
of evil in the world, but they rarely
depict the other side, the work of
God in the world. Even if there are
good forces in the movie they are
usually depicted as weak, when in
reality God is truly in control. If we
believe that the Kingdom of God is
at hand, than whom shall we fear?
In our own lives, we find ourselves
in the midst of spiritual battles.

Beach Church Invites

Goblins, Princesses

To Annual Fall Fest
Beach kids will wear cos-
tumes, go through the Haunted
House, and get treats on the real
Halloween, October 31, at the
Fall Festival of the Pensacola
Beach Community Church, from
two to five in the afternoon.
"In addition to Trunk-or-
Treat, we have lined up a number
of events for this year's festival"
Jackie Henderson, chairman
said. "We will have sack races, a
cake walk, inflatables, a dunking
booth, games and lots of treats."
It has become a tradition on
Pensacola Beach for the church
to offer a safe alternative place
for children to wear costumes and
enjoy fall festivities.
"The entire community
should feel free to decorate their
vehicles and fill the trunk with
treats," Henderson said. "Please
join us in handing out candy to
the little princesses and goblins."
Everyone is invited to this
community event. There is no
charge. The Beach Church is
located at the corner of Via de
Luna and Avenida 18. For more
information contact Henderson at
jackienhenderson@bellsouth.net.


Island Times

Glimpse of Heaven


Not in the sense of a great cosmic
onslaught of angels and demons in
combat, but the very subtle and eas-
ily forgotten battle that rages within
each and every one of us. It may
be the temptation to gossip about a
co-worker, unchaste thoughts about
another person, or insidious laziness
that prevents us from doing God's
will in our lives. The Good News
is .... the battle is already won, the
war is over. There is no question
about who has dominion over this
earth. Now all that there is left is
our unconditional surrender. You


might be thinking to yourself, what
is the preacher talking about? Have
we surrendered ourselves to God's
will? Have we taken seriously the
words from the Lord's prayer, "thy
will be done?" When we surrender
ourselves to God's will, there is no
power that can separate from the
love of God and his saving power.
Let us begin each day in a very
simple prayer, that every breath we
take, every word we speak, every
task we complete, may be in ful-
fillment of God's will and for the
Greater Glory of God.

Holly Shelton Comes Back To The Island


Holly Shelton is coming back
to the Island. At least for a little
while. Her many Beach friends
will be able to see and hear their
beloved Holly when she appears at
the Paradise Bar and Grill on Sun-
day, October 24 starting at 4 p.m.
Holly lived on Ariola Drive
until she decided to find out what
would happen if she moved to Los
Angeles. Holly sang in
several venues on the
West Coast including
the Bonaventure Hotel
in Los Angeles. She
appeared in a variety
of television shows in-
cluding E True Holly-
wood Story and Enter-
tainment Tonight. Hol- '- -
ly appeared in televi- PF
sion commercials and __--_
her California career
peeked with her ap-
pearance in the movie,
Heartbreak Ridge with i - a
Clint Eastwood. Hol-
ly's beautiful voice,
her warm Southern "- .:::
charm, and versatil-
ity were all pointing
toward a promising
future.
One day, while
she was standing in a
room in one of the top
floors of a Los Ange-
les building, the room
began to sway. In fact,
the whole building was
swaying. She was experiencing an
earthquake which overwhelmed
her, so she returned to the Gulf
Coast where she has been enter-
taining in various venues ever
since.
Holly has performed all over
the United States and Europe, but
she now calls Pensacola her home


and delights crowds at numerous
local events and places.
Holly comes by her talents
honestly and naturally. Her dad was
the leader of Shelton's Big Band in
Memphis and her mother was the
vocalist. She has a Bachelor of Fine
Arts in Theatre Performance. She
was the headliner at the Perdido
Key Resort for seven years.


wg


Holly Shelton


"My forte is people," Holly
says. "I love interaction and one-
on-one entertaining. If you come
to my show you will leave feeling
good about yourself."
Holly has won many rave re-
views and recently was named the
"Best Vocalist on the Gulf Coast"
in the Pensacola News Journal


readers' poll.
But, the one who says it best
is Thom Botsford of The Real Pa-
per. "Shelton has earned the label
of Jazz Singer, but could easily be
called a pop singer, a bluesy torch
singer, a cabaret singer, even a
country singer as her many fans
will attest," he wrote.
Holly has made a number of
CDs, and her recent cuts will be on
"Memphis Belles Jazz Collection."
These will be available online and
in bookstores.
As Dan Singers wrote in the
In Tune International Magazine,
"Holly Shelton is a stupendously
talented and a tasteful vocalist you
will never forget,"
Holly will be accompanied by
keyboard player David Shelander
and drummer Lucky Kelson at
Paradise.

Q: "Why does Yahoo ask me to
verify my account by Email?
A: Actually, they will not do
that. What you are seeing is an
identity theft scam. Using email ac-
count names that appear to be from
Yahoo Member Services, the scam
artists send an email to you, tell-
ing you that some changes in your
account have been detected. They
then ask you to follow a website link
to verify the changes and make any
necessary corrections. They may
also create a sense of urgency by
saying that your account may be
closed if you don't respond.
In order to follow that link you
would probably have to type in your


email address and account pass-
word. That would be enough for
the intruders to gain access to your
Yahoo account and your personal
details. Just by clicking on the link
you could be allowing an identity-
seeking virus to be downloaded into
your computer. That virus could
then monitor everything that you
type on your keyboard.
The "account verification"
technique is a popular method of
gaining access to personal accounts.
It is used by people trying to gain
access to bank accounts and credit
card accounts, as well as social
networking accounts such as Yahoo
and Facebook. To avoid that kind

AdmiralAnswers Oil Spill Questions


The latest information the
Island Times has on the Oil Spill
clean up has been secured from an
October 13 operational update at
which Rear Admiral Paul Zukunft,
Assistant Commandant for Marine
Safety, Security, and Stewardship,
answered questions concerning
clean up of buried oil on Northwest
Florida's beaches.
He said, "Yes, we are using
two pieces of machinery dubbed
'sand sharks.' They can go down
up to a meter deep. They sift and
remove all tar from the sand. They
immediately deposit the clean sand


on the Beach and segregate any
oil or tar sediment that may be in
there."
At the end of his update, the
Admiral emphasized that Gulf
seafood is safe to eat.
"Right now we're seeing no
indications that there's polycyclic
aromatic hydrocarbons in that
seafood. But still, there's a stigma
applied, and inappropriately, to the
Gulf of Mexico seafood industry.
As I've said, and will continue to
say time and again, it is the most
sampled seafood anywhere on the
face of the earth. The science, and


I've seen it on a first hand basis, is
thorough, it's comprehensive, and
so those are some of the hardships
that the Gulf of Mexico residents
are trying to recover from right
now, especially those who make
their livelihood harvesting sea-
food, and then dealing with the
image of that. Again, we're very
concerned about that image, and
we'll continue the monitoring
process where we still see oiling,"
he concluded.
Information about the ongoing
response efforts is available via the
Web site at www.restorethegulf.gov.

Dear Friend,
My name is Danny Lewis and I am
running for County Commissioner District 4.
I have been a people's person for over 20 years.
My work history began on Wall Street. For over 10 years
I balanced daily with the New York Stock Exchange. I then
changed careers and held the position of Sales Manager for
several Electronic Test Equipment Companies. I served as Vice-
President of the Neighborhood Councils of Los Angeles for over
5 years.
I have dealt with local government for many years. It's time
for the people to come forward concerning issues in their own
communities. I have been the voice of many communities with
great success. I not only listen to the residents, but offer solu-
tions.
Currently, I am on the Citizens Advisory Committee, United
Escambia Health Solutions Committee, and a Mentor at Spencer
Bibbs Elementary School Second Grade.

Island Tie PAG 1


by..ONG HUwE o


This past summer The Kid
attended Washington College as
part of the Johns Hopkins program
for Gifted and Talented Youth. He
participated in a three-week seminar
and lived the life of a college student.
Literally. He stayed in a freshman
dorm room with the bathroom at the
end of the hall, ate all his meals in
the college cafeteria, and spent his
weekends doing laundry and hanging
in the Commons Center either watch-
ing movies or going to dances. He
came home with 73 different pieces
of written work and the mention of
a girlfriend. Okay, more than a men-
tion -- how about an e-mail address
and home phone number to be exact.
And so it began.
"Hey, mom. Do you think I can
invite Sarah over?" he would ask.
"Sweetheart, she lives in An-
napolis. We live in St. Mary's Coun-
ty. It's about a 90 minute drive," I
would reply.
Now for all you moms out there,
I do not have to decode my original
answer. However, for others a slight
translation might be needed. So here
goes. (Kid, you are only in 7th grade
and too young to have a girlfriend.
She could live next door and the an-
swer is still no.) Then while getting
my hair done, I found myself reading
an article in some parenting maga-
zine about respecting the first crush
and what I could do as a parent to
ensure my child partakes in a healthy
relationship. Was the dating universe
sending me some kind of message?
Was the Kid's glazed over eyes and
blushing cheeks at the mere mention
of Sarah's name a true sign that he
was smitten with her and maybe a
supervised gathering would be okay?
"Hey, mom. Sarah really likes
to go to the movies and these are the
theaters she lives close to," the Kid
tells me.
I had to give him credit. He had
done the research. So I told him to set
it up with Sarah and I would do what
I could to make arrangements with
her parents. Faster than you could
press send on an e-mail, the Kid was
downstairs and handing me Sarah's
mom's cell phone number with total
unwavering insistence that I call
her now. I seem to recall I was in the


middle of something, like work, but
he wasn't backing down. So I dialed.
And she answered.
"This is Katherine," she said.
My mouth went dry. My palms
began to sweat. Somehow I was
channeling every young boy's worst
nightmare. Rejection. What if she
said Sarah couldn't meet the Kid for
lunch and a movie? How would I
react? What did I read in that parent-
ing magazine? Damn, why didn't I
just tear out the article and keep it?
Finally, I got a hold of myself and
began with introductions and small
chit chat that lasted for about an
hour until I worked up the nerve to
mention lunch and a movie. This was
uncharted waters for me and I braced
myself for the answer.
Ten minutes later the Harvard
educated doctor finally said yes, but
it was only after I endured a lecture
on the formation of the emotional
development of our children's brains
at this age. I realized then she truly
missed her profession and was will-
ing to play along if this meant the
Kid could spend time with Sarah
enjoying a burger and watching a
movie that had to be pre-approved
by her parents. It worked and we all
four were set for a date.
When the day actually arrived,
the Kid spent at least two hours get-
ting ready. He actually asked if his
socks matched his outfit. I knew then
Sarah must be special -- he was not
one to care if his socks matched as a
pair, let alone what he was wearing.
Then he wanted to know if one swipe
of deodorant was enough or should
he do more. Deodorant? When did he
get deodorant? It was time to get the
Colonel involved. Finally, dressed
and smelling rather man-like, the Kid
and I drove to Annapolis. He had this
very peaceful and serene look on his
face as he stared out the window. I
made him "air practice" shaking the
good doctor's hand and introducing
himself. He was on his own as to how
to greet Sarah.
Our timing was perfect. As we
pulled up to the restaurant, Sarah
and her mom were walking across
the parking lot. Introductions were
quickly made and the awkwardness
soon began. I was the first to embar-


rass the Kid and I managed to do
so in under 60 seconds. When I in-
nocently asked him where he would
like to sit, the Kid shot me a look
that screamed my mother is so 1985.
Fortunately, the doctor bailed me out
with her genuine bedside manner by
explaining that it's easier to talk to
someone when you sit across from
them. Hey, all I wanted to do was
quickly put my purse down some-
where, anywhere, before I headed
off to the bathroom. I did not think
wetting my pants would make an
ideal first impression.
Then it was Katherine's turn
to embarrass the Kid and this time
I came to her rescue with my PR
skills. I put a spin on the situation that
would have made any White House
press secretary proud. It seemed
Sarah did not have braces when the
Kid met her, but now she does and
is a bit self-conscious about them.
So Katherine asked the Kid if he
thought Sarah was just as pretty with
herbraces as opposed to without. He
actually said, "I am pulling a Mark
McGuire on this one." Meaning he
said nothing. And his nothingness
just hung in the air like a wet towel
molding in the bottom of a laundry
basket. Quickly, I made the statement
that Sarah's smile was fantabulous
withbraces and nothing could impact
the beauty of it. Later on the Kid
thanked me.
After that Katherine and I talked
only to each other, and the Kid and
Sarahbabbled on about books, mov-
ies and music. We all shared popcorn
and candy at the movie and a few last
laughs afterwards until it was time
to say goodbye. Katherine hugged
me. Katherine hugged the Kid. I
hugged Sarah. And then the Kid just
stood there with his arms frozen to
his side. Finally his right hand broke
free and with a flip of his wrist, Sarah
received a small wave goodbye and
the promise of an e-mail. As we
walked back to the car, the glaze
in his eyes returned and his cheeks
filled with color. He let out a small
sigh and stared out the window the
entire drive back home. To this day,
I am still not sure if there will be a
second date, but at least the first one
was memorable. Until then...

Celebrity Chefs Capture The Fort


At sunset on November 6, the
Pensacola Celebrity Chefs will treat
guests to classic coastal cuisine in an
extraordinary setting- Fort Pickens.
The Pensacola Celebrity Chefs
- The Fish House's Jim Shirley,
Global Grill's Frank Taylor, Hilton
Pensacola Beach Gulf Front's Dan
Dunn, Jackson Steakhouse's Irv
Miller and Gus Silivos - will create
a five-course tasting menu paired
with wines from Southern Wines.
"We all took historical recipes
that have been used in our area for
hundreds of years and chose those
that we could modernize while still
honoring Pensacola's rich history,"
said Miller. "For example, my dish,
carpetbag steak, has a long-standing
tradition in the South. Oysters were
considered a luxury item in the 19th
century and Americans combine
with many things, including beef-
steak. Today that combination, with
the addition of a full-flavored blue
cheese remains magical."
Silivos, longtime chef at
Skopelos, chose red snapper for his
main ingredient.
"In the 19th and early 20th


centuries, Pensacola was home to
the largest red snapper fishing fleet
in the country," he said. "Red snap-
per today remains a viable part of
our economy and a welcome and
flavorful addition to our diet."
Entertainment will be provided
