This time it was Payton, who was seriously injured when Jimmy Graham was unceremoniously slammed into him. After undergoing surgery on Monday, Payton returned to the football game in the boxes high above with his team via his string of outstanding coaches who will, in turn, relay his message to the team. Incidentally, the starch went out of the Saints organization when their coach got hurt, and coached from the sidelines. They lost.

GOOD NEWS The PBA issued the following statement as good news in the against the County. This case, 1108 Ariola vs. Jones involved the following question related to the taxation of leasehold improvements is a matter of great public importance; Whether the appellate leaseholders are equitable owners of the leasehold improvements on the subject of real property when they have neither a perpetual lease of the underlying property nor an option to purchase such property for a nominal value. The Supreme Court has the option of hearing or not hearing the case, but the door is open. A small glimmer of hope in a situation, which, to now, has seemed beyond our control.

PAGE 5 Island Times November 1, 2011 The Full Board of the Santa Rosa Island Authority, met in a special session, October 26, before their Committee meetings. They focused on three major items the Master Plan, concerts, and the Economic Impact Study. The Master Plan which was originally presented by EDSA, had been approved by the Island Authority. It then was sent to the Baskerville Donovan, which created and gave the Authority alternatives to the plan based on the fact that the original plan could not be built due to geographical restraints in the core area. A meeting between EDSA and Baskerville Donovan had been approved by the Island Authority at a cost of $25,000. The estimated cost now has escalated to $75,000 to bring EDSA to a two day meeting. The Steering Committee wanted this meeting to take place, said Fred Gant. The Steering Committee has worked long and hard and is interested in getting the best work to set the foundation for the future of our Beach. The money has increased portant to move forward for the future of the beach. I ask that members of the Board increase the monies to get this done. Jim Waite of Baskerville Donovan presented the parameters which must be met in the plan presentation. We must have a minimum of two alternatives to present to the County, he said. BDI will provide the engineering staff, then EDSA presents the concepts. County Administrator Randy Oliver, reinforced Waites remarks in a letter to the SRIA, It is the Countys intention that develop two constructible alternatives. Our goal at the end of the two day session is to produce that can be built upon. Oliver set up a task plan for the Master Plan. The alternatives for the Beachs core area would be (1) Pedestrian Traffic At Grade or (2) Elevated Pedestrian Crossings. ress through the following process beginning on October 31 and culminating in submission December 16. Schedule: October 31Final Scope and Fees November 1Team Kick Off November 7 Alternatives identified November 11 Alternative analysis complete November 14 Draft alternatives November 18 Draft cost estimates November 23 Unreviewed Final Alternatives Complete December 1 Final Alternatives Submitted to Escambia County, Begin RAI period December 9 County Comments Complete, RAI period ends Thursday & Friday, December 15-16 On site workshop, final program presentation. Board members began to question adding an amount of $75,000 to the $330,000 they had already paid for the plan. Dave Pavlock said they had already approved an expenditure of $25,000. He asked, What can we get for that? There was no answer. Tammy Bohannon asked could meet in the middle and keep the original concept. Waite responded by saying the County wants two alternatives. The two this core area plan. We are going to pay these gentlemen to justify what they drew, said Board member Dr. Thomas Campanella, referring to EDSA. I think these gentlemen should have given us a plan that works, not just a drawing of what people wanted. Gant stayed with his original thoughts. We should invest the additional money which affects the future of our Beach for the next 30, 40 or 50 years, he said. So, the Master Plan is still in a state of turmoil. The Board voted unanimously to table until the Full Board Meeting on November 2. They will request that EDSA prepare a scope and cost projection, with the breakdown of hourly costs. Buck Lee, SRIA executive director, took the Board on a more pleasant journey when he tackled the second item on the agenda, concerts. I met with promoter Joe Lewis, and I am excited about the concerts, he said. I envision the concerts like a super duper Bands on the Beach. We are looking at dates in April and September. We hope they will 6,000 tickets will be sold. There will be general admission and VIP tickets available. Planning has already started for the concerts including a review of Casino Beach and the Pavilion, so the promoter can get the site plan and details in place. SRIA Still Sorting Out Bumps In Master Plan Presentation Sponsors are already coming forward with interest in supporting the event, according to Lee. The third item, the Economic Impact Study by the Haas Center at UWF has already been approved at a cost estimate of $31,500. However, Lee has been informed that Terry Scruggs, interim vice president of the Pensacola Chambers Convention and Visitors Bureau, has requested some of the same information from the Center. There may be a savings to the SRIA by working in cooperation with the Pensacola Chamber. The next SRIA Full Board meeting is Wednesday, November 2 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public.Beach Advocates Host Tax ForumPensacola Beach leaseholders, who are now being burdened with both lease fees and ad valorem taxation on improvements and land can learn more about the topic and legal remedies at a Taxation Forum hosted by the Pensacola Beach Advocates. The informational event is set for Tuesday, November 1 at 5:30 p.m. at the Pensacola Beach Community Church Fellowship Hall. Attorneys who have represented Beach leaseholders in the taxation litigation will speak to the group. Danny Kepner of Shell Fleming Davis & Menge and Ed Fleming of McDonald Fleming & Moorehead will make presentations. In a recent newsletter, PBA announced that the topics will include: Tax on Improvements the First District Court of residential leaseholders challenge, thus opening the door to the Florida Supreme Court. Learn the next steps in this litigation. Tax on land a separate challenge to the taxation of leased land in 2011 Learn how you can be part of this litigation. Other novel options some leaseholders with older leases that are silent on the issue of taxation may have another way to transfer the burden of taxation. There will be a limited question and answer session during the meeting. Anyone who wishes to ask a question, must do so in writing at the beginning of the meeting. Many of us have the same questions, said PBA President Jim Cox. We will provide a form for questions to be submitted as attendees arrive, and compile them so as to avoid needless repetition. The Pensacola Beach Advocates hosts this forum for their members but invite the general public to attend. There is no charge. Anyone interested in membership in the PBA can join online at www.pbadvocates.org. The group is open to residential and commercial leaseholders and those with a business interest in Pensacola Beach.

Just a couple hours of your time can go a long way in showing them the honor and respect they have earned and deserve. My Daddy served in the Army during World War II and home he had ever been in his life. He was born and raised in rural South Georgia and had never been more than 30 or 40 miles away home. Traveling half way around the world was a lot further than he had ever planned to go. Occasionally his time in the War. Of course, he only told us the funny stuff. landing on the shores of some foreign country in the heat of how hot it was and left out the part about how scared he must have been. He said it must have been at least 120 degrees vived the battle. to some semblance of civilization as they began to see handmade signs advertising ice cream. His mouth was watering just reading those signs and had passed before they actually reached the small town. They only to spit it out immediately. It turned out the ice cream was the worst thing hed ever tasted. I can only imagine what a huge disappointment that must have been. What I remember is the tears rolling down his face as my entire family watched my brother board the tiny airplane that began his own journey to another war in another foreign land far from home. Mom and was a strange and scary thing the fear they we all had that we might never see my brother again. We were among the home without any visible scars. scars you cant see can be the worst of them all. I cannot imagine the pain a parent must feel in sending their only son off to war. Now, what I can imagine is a huge, vibrant and joyous Parade to honor those who we have lost us today. So lets show our pride in our veterans and give them a day to not only remember, but to be remembered! Dont put the fairy dust away too fast; might just as well leave it out cause youll be needing it for all the festivities lining up. Krewe of Mardi Gras meetings with the Halloween Costume meeting at Sabine Sandbar. Plus here in the South we have the Football Season which rolls right along into Mardi Gras.

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, when wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs. The holiday, All Saints Day, incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child-friendly activities such as trick-or-treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights get colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes and sweet treats. Halloween is a fun time for our children and a time for parties and all that goes with it. It is a great fall event and we certainly do not think of it as a time when spirits are loosed to roam the earth. Today maybe a good time to focus on the other day that I described in this article. All Saints Day, as it is called here, is the beginning of The Day of the Dead in Mexico. Both of these terms have the intent of celebrating those people that have gone before us. It is a day to honor their presence on the earth and the way they served God. Remembering those that have gone before us is not a foreign concept. The writer of Hebrews talks about a great cloud of witnesses, all of whom have passed from this life to the next. Happy All Saints Day! Pensacola Beach Chamber members basked in the successes of their fall events for a few brief moments at the October 25 monthly meeting before discussing the Season Your Holidays with Island Spirit promotion. Events Chairman Beverly Campbell announced that the Taste of the Beach and the Art and Wine Festival showed record setting growth as was evident by solid hotel bookings and increased toll facility numbers. The Taste of the Beach saw a twenty percent increase of cars from 2009, said Campbell. And our Art and Wine Festival weekend when we partnered with the Triathlon and Songwriters was a big winner, too. The Season Your Holidays promotion which kicks off November 25, features an action packed calendar. The now famous Lighted Boat Parade is December Beach Parade, December 11. Mike Cook of the Better Business Bureau commented Beach Parade was listed in the American Automobile Associations Going Places Magazine. In other business Chamber President Shelley Johnson announced the Board has voted on a Elbert will remain as the Board Chairman; Johnson will serve as president, Beverly Campbell, vice-president; Diane Tyson, secretary and Rick Cantin, treasurer. Board members are Karen Cook, Nathan Holler, Nan Harper and Amy Martin. Music was a hot topic during the Roundtable discussion. Terese Overlade of Paradise announced their line up of live music and New Orleans bands continues. They will host Eddie Fest, a three day music event November 1113. Beverly Campbell said the Sandshaker will continue to host live bands on the weekends and wants all bars to do the same. Lets pull together and bring people to the beach, she said. Lets make sure they have something to do every weekend. Marta Ray, sales manager at the Days Inn, noted that her property was the working hotel for the DeLuna Fest which resulted in a The Beach Church and Our Lady of the Assumption representatives reported on upcoming events. We are collecting non-perishable food items for our Mission 1 program, said Chrissy Cook, Beach Church. The Church, Fire Station and Visitors Center will accept donations. If you are ready to start your Christmas shopping, Our Ladys Narthex opens at 10:45 each Sunday to offer Nina Fritz artwork, said Mary Claus, Our Ladys publicity chairman. We will have cookbooks for sale soon. Our Lady is the host site for Joy For The Beach, December 6 at 7 p.m. The concert is open to the public at no charge. Karen Cook thanked the Chamber for helping her support the Santa Rosa Kids House. We set up at the Art and Wine Festival with our very funky Redneck Wine Glasses, said Cook. We sold out before the event ended and presented a check for $1400 to the Kids House. The next membership meeting will be Tuesday, November 29 at 8:30 a.m. at Days Inn.

He presented his plan at the October 24 Board meeting as part of his Eagle Scout Leadership Service Project. The area is where students board the bus and wait for parents to pick them up. Taylor, who is Beach School principal Jeff Castleberrys son, will work with long time Beach contractor Pat Lyons during the Thanksgiving holidays to complete the project. He has two badges to complete in the next four months to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. The materials will cost $341, an expenditure approved unanimously by the Board. SWEETEN THE PIE The Partners-in-Education program, which accepts donations for the operation of Pensacola Beach Elementary School, has met its goal. According to Todd McCurdy, Beach School Board president, the fund could use a few more donations. The Beach School does not receive any tax dollars or funding from Escambia County because it is a Charter School. The nationally recognized school operates on donations and State funding per student. There are currently 137 students. P-I-E donations can be made at School or online at www. pbes.org.

While the original Kindle is primarily intended for downloading and reading books, the new Kindle Fire tablet is in direct competition with the Apple iPad. With the Fire device, you still have the book-reading capabilities of the Kindle. Also, you have complete access to the Internet through the wireless features of the Droid operating system. Access to the internet is limited to WiFi (via wireless router or hotspots) because the device does not have 3G hardware installed. With this unit, you have access to 2 million free books at the Kindle store (part of Amazon.com), plus another million that are generally priced around $10. With the Kindle Fire you can download games, applications, movies, newspapers, and magazines. After reaching an agreement with Prime for video streaming, the Kindle Fire can now view 12,000 videos and movies. Recently PBS has been added to the list, providing nextday viewing of shows such as Nova, French Chef, Frontline, Washington Week, and Masterpiece Theater. It has a full-color, 7 screen, which is smaller than the iPad. Priced at $199, it is less than half the cost of the lowest-priced iPad. Its 8-gigabyte hard disk, which is the largest of any of the Kindle products, will hold about 800 songs or 6,000 books. As with other Kindles, you are not limited by the size of the disk. Kindle customers get free storage on the Internet in the Amazon Cloud. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

Dresses range in sizes from 4-22 and will of participating salons, none in our area, so brides may have to travel to Ft. Lauderdale to get their gown. Worth checking out.Precious WaterThe cost of water to island businesses and residents may increase. The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority proposed rate increases are about nine percent to mainland and island customers. The water and wastewater services to Pensacola Beach are almost twice as expensive as those in Escambia County. Steve Sorrell, ECUA Executive Director explains the charges, The water is pumped out of the mainland system, treated, disinfected and then pumped to the beach for storage and distribution as needed. The tanks, pumps and piping on the Beach are unique to the Beach, but the production and transportation costs are associated with the mainland system. The residents water production system and still have their own storage and distribution system which has to be maintained. Their rates are higher because they use the mainland system and have their own storage and distribution system on the Beach. The Beach also has redundant wastewater treatment plants (looks like one, but actually there are two) for the Beach only, but the plants do not complete the entire treatment of the raw sewage from the residents on the Beach.Experts on CleanTime to take a look at holiday clothes.

Sunday Ticket www.DalesBigDeck.com 715 Pensacola Beach Blvd at the Sabine MarinaRiver of Rust On one of our weekend boat trips on The Cabernet, Jane and I planned to explore Mobile Bay. Our boat was a 44 foot Hatteras and drew about 3 feet, so as long as we were careful we could explore some of the delta area at the northern end of Mobile Bay. We motored over and docked at the marina just across from the Fairhope Yacht Club. We wanted to try a restaurant on the bay above Fairhope, which had been recommended to us. We put on some nice clothes and borrowed the marinas rusty old pick up truck and drove to the restaurant. We must have looked like Zeke from the Creek since the truck was right out of Sanford and Son. You remember that old TV series? Well, I pulled up to the restaurant door to let Jane out and parked the truck. We were seated at a nice table but it was a little bright. Im glad we werent looking for a quiet dinner because this sure wasnt it. We felt we were in a Greyhound Bus station with every waiter swishing right by our table, both coming and going and every new party being escorted right alongside our table. The food was good but the atmosphere left a lot to be desired. Maybe it was our grand arrival in Sanfords pick up truck. The next morning we motored across the bay and into the Mobile River and turned upstream. It is very congested there with all kinds of ship repair going on and many ocean going ships alongside piers loading or unloading. It was pretty exciting and I did get called down at one ship repair site. We were moving too fast and laying a little wake. I had not noticed the divers flags along one ship there. It was my fault for not paying attention. I felt a little self conscious for not realizing there were divers working on the ship bottom who could be injured by my wake. On up the river, we came to a fork and a smaller river, so we turned into it and moved on along. Things began to change. There was no current at all and we noticed sunken barges along both banks. The further we went, the more rusted out barges there were on the banks. Some were piled up on others and some were laying submerged mostly under the water. The first thing we knew the river was chocked off with these hulks. We had to back away from this blockage and get back into some more open water. This really was disgusting. You know if you hang around the water much you develop a real affection for clean beaches and bays. Nobody wants to see rusted out steel barges blocking what would have been a beautiful delta area. I dont know where these barges came from but they sure didnt get there by themselves. Some barge company had to have pushed that first old barge up there. Maybe it was taking on water and the company just wanted to get rid of it. Somebody had to be responsible for this. Those derelict hulks just didnt get up in that river by themselves. All of them had to have had some kind of identification lettered on the hulls. Why hasnt some state or federal agency been advised of this mess and found some way to force the owners to clean up after themselves? We got turned around alright and went back to the main river and turned upstream again. After a few miles, I started hearing a low rumble not too far away. We were moving along a stretch of trees along our starboard side and coming up on a sharp right hand bend. When we got to the bend there was this huge barge coming downstream pushed by a little tow boat that could hardly see over the top. Thats where the rumble was coming from. I sure was glad we were on the inside of that narrow bend where we were in no danger since the barge just barely stayed off the downstream bank as it followed the river toward Mobile Bay. I remembered coming down the much wider Mississippi River and following the standard Rules of the Road when I met an up bound tow and passed him port to port and got caught on the outside of a fairly sharp bend. We darned near got washed out of the river by the huge prop wash from that three stacker towboat with 12 barges on the nose moving upstream. I never want to get caught in that situation again. We let this Mobile River barge string get away from us, pulled a 180 and motored on back toward the bay. That night we tied up on Fowl River and enjoyed a glass of wine or two and rehashed our rusty barges experience. Maybe someone has cleaned that mess up by now but I seriously doubt it. I wonder who left that first rusted out barge that started all this? Superintendent Dan Brown announced today that the Fort Pickens will host a Civil War 150th anniversary event to commemorate the 1861 Bombardment of Pensacola Bay. Although the Pensacola forts were constructed to defend the nation from foreign invasion, the most significant action at the Pensacola forts was during the Civil War, when the nation was at war with itself, said Superintendent Dan Brown. On Saturday, November 19 the park will also commemorate the 1861 Bombardment of Pensacola Bay with a candlelight tour of Fort Pickens. Interpreters will present the history of Pensacola during the Civil War at different stations inside the fort. Beginning at 5 p.m. tours will depart the parade ground every 15 minutes and last one hour. Reservations are required for the candlelight tours. Call the Fort Pickens Visitor Center at 850-934-2635 to make a reservation. Although the Fort Pickens area closes at sunset except to Historic Fort To Host Candlelight Commemorationregistered campers and visitors with valid Night-Owl permits, the entrance station will be open for this program. An $8.00 entrance fee is collected at the Fort Pickens Area and is good for seven days. For information about this program or others, please call the Naval Live Oaks Visitor Center at 850-934-2600 or visit the park's webpage at www.nps. gov/guis.

Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Crossing Phoenix Crossing Entertainment Complex www.newlibertylanes.com Well, Im back. I have finally managed to slither out from mounds of sawdust, drywall and carpet fibers. I have spent way too many hours chiseling up tile and thin set, pulling up carpet and out staples, and hauling it all to the local dump. I can tell you all about hardwood versus engineered wood versus tile. I will be sending out Christmas cards this year to the folks at Lowes, Deans Lumber, United Rentals and PODS. They are my new best friends. My entire home and, by association, my life are completely under construction. Who knew an over flowed toilet could cause so much turmoil? It was a lovely August day. Yes, you read that correctly, August, and The Colonel and I had just ventured out for a quick 60 minute run, leaving The Kid who is 13 almost 14, home alone. Much to our surprise, when we opened the front door, we observed The Kid running up and down the stairs with lots of towels and also the pan rack in the kitchen was completely bare. Absorption items and containers could only mean one thing water and lots of it. Trying to get a handle on the situation, we finally got A Story out of The Kid. We may possibly never know THE story. I flushed the toilet in my bathroom, he said. I was listening to my music (translation: iPod with ear buds jammed so far down that I fear only a surgeon could remove them) and reading my book (translation: completely immersed in the plot that I am grateful he was not cooking anything) downstairs in the game room when I felt some water on my head. Then what did you do? Well, I wiped off the top of my head (translation: did nothing because (a) I am a teenager and (b) it was just a little drop of water and drops of water always fall from the ceiling, right?) And? Well, then I noticed that all of the games were wet and that bin over there had about six inches of water in it. Then there was lots of water coming from the ceiling, not just drops. So I turned off the water downstairs. However, as I was getting towels from upstairs laundry room, I noticed that the carpet on the steps was all wet as well as in my bedroom and your office. Plus there was water in my bathroom, so I shut the water off in there, too. Sweety (translation: sometimes you have to revert to super duper niceness to get the entire story out of a teenager), how long do you think the water was running amuck throughout the house? Only five minutes. Ten tops. Okay fifteen max. Anyone have the number to ServePro and USAA? Thus the adventure of our house under construction began. We are now down to nothing but studs and plywood; subfloors and foundation. The first contractor, recommended by our insurance company, we fired after six attempts of trying to get the work order correct. The final straw was when our name wasnt even right on the seventh incorrect work order. I guess they truly didnt know who their customer was. Our second contractor, from a local family owned company, is awesome. He also doesnt need to use a GPS to find our neighborhood and he remembers when our area was nothing but tobacco fields. How long Operation Remodel will take is anyones guess. Dust is my new favorite accessory. I wear it wherever I go. I have grown accustom to cooking off of a George Foreman grill and using only the microwave. Stoves and ovens are overrated. We eat, watch TV, and basically live out of the master bedroom because it still has a piece of carpet that we can sit on. During a recent conference call, one of my co-workers asked if I was working remotely from a cave. Bare walls, bare floors, big echo. I finished the call from my car parked in the driveway. When Labor Day came and went, I thought this entire project was a labor of love. Columbus Day signaled wooden boats, hardwood floors. For Halloween, I was sure it would be only treats no tricks. Now I am facing Veterans Day and I am convinced it will take an army to get my house back in order by Thanksgiving. Until next time The Krewe of Junkanoo hosted their inaugural Golf Outing, Saturday, October 22 at Hidden Creek Country Club. Congratulations to Chuck Connell, Edwin Kirk Davidson (KD), Doug Permenter and Keith Hightower, who were the winning team. Right: KD shows his winning form. Pensacola Beachs Krewe of Junkanoo hosted a Golf Outing to raise funds for their charitable outreach. This trio of gals worked hard to make sure the October 22 event was a huge success. Taking a moment to enjoy the perfect golfing weather, before going back to work are krewe members (L to R): Beverly Johnson, left, Terri Connell, center and Krewe President Susi Mardis.

Pickens last winter, was released back into the Gulf on a picture perfect Pensacola Beach day. A large crowd gathered at Park West, October 24, as Gulfarium Sea Turtle Stranding Coordinators Rachel Caine, left, and Lisa Crawford, carried the fourteen pound turtle to the waters edge. As soon as Shrek was released he scurried along the sand into the Gulf and quickly swam south. Dozens of teams of golfers were vying for this giant trophy at the Red Cross annual putt putt tourney on Pensacola Beach, October 21. Teams had a choice of three different tee times at Tiki Island; and all were treated to an Awards Party at Flounders at the end of play. Showing off the top prize are LaDonna Spivey, left, Volunteer Coordinator and Leanne Barger, Emergency Services Director of the Red Cross of Northwest Florida.
