The Escambia County Board of Commissioners and the members of the Santa Rosa Island Authority Board met in a joint session on October 4 hoping to solve several stressful issues the Beach population faces. Most of the issues originated in the assessment of Ad Valorem taxes on Pensacola Beach, a matter that is still tied up in court cases. The details of these converdict on the tax assessment, were resolved by discussions in the following agenda: 1. Ed Guernsey, Chairman of the Santa Rosa Island Authority Board made a presentation on the importance Island Authority. This presentation has already been covered by Island Times and is available in its entirety by going to www. MyIslandTimes.com. 2. Pr esentation of the SRIA Resolution 2011-4 supporting the request for Congressional legislation to amend the deed which restricts the conveyance of Fee Simple Title. Note the SRIA Resolution takes effect only if the leaseholders do not prevail in the lawsuits. 3. Pr esentation of SRIA Resolution 2011-5 requesting that the County escrow all ad valorem taxes collected on the land for 2011 and the future until the lawsuits conclude; and if the land tax is legal, reimburse all leaseholders the amount of lease fees paid; if the land taxes are not legal, then reimburse all ad valorem taxes collected on the land. 4. Es cambia Countys recommendation on refunding cial burden of double taxation 5. In terlocal agreement to loan the SRIA $200,000 to make 6. Di scussion of changing the beachs MSBU for law enforcement to an MSTU. Informational only. Before starting his presentation, Guernsey told the Commissioners, I have lived here all my life, but I could not have told you what the SRIA actually did. I bet 98 percent of the County residents are the way I used to be. When it comes to funding decisions, I would ask that you dont look at it as a cost, but as an investment, because thats what it is. SRIA Board Member Vernon Prather added, I have no doubt those who set up Pensacola Beach sixty years ago, knew what they were doing. There is no place like Pensacola Beach. You can have a great day on Pensacola Beach for one dollar or you can stay in a nice hotel and eat in a wonderful restaurant. It was set up with lease fees so the beach would not be a burden. It is expensive to maintain all the services. He continued, That business plan has existed for over sixty years. The challenge is, as this business plan changes, how we react. We have to understand that it will change from self-supporting. It could turn to a department of the County and it will hold its hand out and say, feed me. Does Pensacola Beach have a viable business plan in place for today, and in the future, so that it can continue to be all that it can be? We know that the lease fees work, but our task is immense before us. I would encourage you to set up some kind of task force. We need to work together to come up with the best business plan for the future. We owe this to our citizens and visitors. In Guernseys presentation, it showed that the SRIA had contributed over $17 million annually to the County in addition to the $6 million the SRIA budgets to run the Island. In regard to the Fee Simple Title resolution, Guernsey said if the courts rule that taxation on the land is legal, then Fee Simple may be appropriate. The Commission accepted the SRIA Resolution, which is a companion to a Resolution the Commission had already passed. In the discussion of double taxation, Commissioner Grover Robinson, IV, whose district includes Pensacola Beach, said I dont like it anymore than you do. I have a leasehold on Pensacola Beach. This is out of our out a way to help you. A motion was made and unanimously passed which would give leaseholders some relief after paying taxes and lease fees. The decision included: A. Th e BCC will allocate annually to the SRIA for base services an amount not to exceed the amount collected on the Countywide millage rate for the real property located on Santa Rosa Island or the amount budgeted to be collected by the SRIA for residential lease fees in 2012 which amount is less B. Re quest that the SRIA use these funds to address lease payments to the extent the SRIA believes is fair and equitable to all concerned. (In other words, rebate the lease fees) In other business, the BCC voted unanimously to lend the SRIA $200,000 toward the $300,000 repair project on the Boardwalk. During a discussion regarding the Municipal Services protection, the County Commissioners told the SRIA they would always pay more than two and half times what the rest tection because the island has its However, the MSBU for police protection could be changed to an MSTU, a tax not based of the property, which would result in a savings to residents whose property is worth less than $309,664. The item was for discussion only. No vote was taken. Jim Cox, President of the Pensacola Beach Advocates, a strong organization which follows all political moves carefully, thanked the Commissioners for their work. He noted that there is a timing issue in offering relief for taxes and leases fees. This is a difference of timing. The collection of lease fees are done in advance; and the collection of taxes are done in arrears. The problem is that there will always be a one year difference between the two. There will never be enough money, Cox said. Robinson responded by saying the County would work on this. Cox persisted by telling the Commission that they would taxation and change the date in the resolution. Notable among the many comments made by the SRIA, the BCC, and the members of the audience, were the words of 40-year Beach resident Tom Almon. The Island generates almost one third of the revenue of the County, Almon said. I would give the SRIA a good grade for what they have done. I fully support the SRIA. The elephant in the room is Chris Jones. He threw you, and us, under the bus. He is sitting back and saying that is what he had to do. That is not true. Almons comments drew a round of applause from the large delegation of Beach residents and business owners at the meeting. Commissioner Robinson asked that the attendees refrain from applauding because he felt it created an us-against-them atmosphere rather than oneness. At the end of the meeting, Robinson implored Beach people to send their comments, concerns and wishes to his ofhappy to hear from everyone. 4940 and email is district4@ County Considers Cure For Double Trouble-Lease Fee And Taxes On Beach

This gentleman walked all the way around to the gate which from our vantage point we could see was locked. Poor fellow walked all the way back around to the other side and somehow gained entry. We yelled and pointed directions to the hat which was solidly caught in some scraggly bushes. He waded through the what else down there, but he came up with the hat.

I have been asked in the past, and when I answer that question I point to this passage from Matthew's gospel, to give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to give to God what is God's. This is one scripture passage that exhorts us to follow the law of the land, while understanding that God has the ultimate authority, because he is responsible for all of creation. Giving to Caesar what is Caesars is the call to Earthly responsible citizenship. We pay our taxes, obey laws, vote, because we want to support the livelihood, freedom, and security that is provided for us. A more interesting question about speeding is, "Does getting a speeding ticket determine whether it was a sin or not?" Because of our experience of civil law, we tend to think within the bounds of "I can do it, as long as I don't get caught." I can fall to this rationalization at times. We should drive safely, not to avoid a ticket, but because we are driving dangerous machines that could and have taken people's lives. This is where the dominion of God takes over. When it comes to our civil laws, God wants us to follow them in order to promote peace, but does ask us to stand up for what is right, even if that means breaking the law. There were countless martyrs in the early centuries of our Church who refused to follow the law that required them to offer pagan Caesar was due his taxes based upon the fact his face was on their monetary system, but did not have a authority to force his people to worship him as a God. The law that we come up with always is subordinate to the law of God. This does not mean we throw out civil law, but quite the contrary. By our humble obedience to civil authority, even in the little things, we begin to learn how to be humble and obedient to our Lord and Savior. Let us be responsible citizens of our country, while always remaining faithful to our God, who has offered us a citizenship in Heaven.To The Sisters of the BeachOnly the SOBs would think of something so perfect to honor bench, complete with the beautiful plaque, is quite at home on my back deck in Mexico Beach.

Jay Baynes, committee member, announced that the 28 members are divided into four teams. The areas of emphasis are: transportation and parking, litter and recycling, wildlife conservation and dune preservation. After a few meetings, the four areas of emphasis found that education was a common thread to success in supporting these sensitive environmental topics, said Baynes. The Beachkeepers set short and long term goals, all included greater awareness education for residents and visitors. The goals were summarized as: Transportation and Parking is to encourage use of the existing Trolleys on the Island. If we dont use them, we will lose them. Please take the trolley when you can and encourage others to do so. The trolley plan is consistently being updated and improved upon, but if no one rides it, the Trolleys will disappear. A Green Parking Space and Bicycle Rack initiative has been put in place. A meeting has been held at the SRIA for buy-in on the proposed plan to gain initial support, and was well received. Two dozen green parking places for electric carts, and 12 new bike racks situated across the island are proposed. Recycling and Litter The short range goal is to implement island-wide recycling, both commercial and residential. on Thursday, Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. at Emerald Dolphin with an ECUA recycling representative, island condominium association managers and other island property managers. Anyone interested in about the recycling initiative is welcome. There are plans to offer residents and leaseholders a shredding day, prescription drug disposal day as well as promoting the existing hazardous waste disposal. Future plans include Earth Day 2012, Green Hotel initiatives, a Recycle Kiosk on the island, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle Island Yard Sale and addressing the issue of pet waste. Wildlife Conservation As you may or may not know, we had a record number of turtle nests this year on the island. Unfortunately Tropical Storm Lee took a hefty toll and left but a few of the 16 original nests intact. The Wildlife team has taken turtle conservation as one of its primary initiatives and has already distributed turtle awarenesses on the island. Education is a key factor in conservation. There will be a meeting with the Florida Shorebird Alliance, date to be announced, to determine Beachkeepers Advocate for Environment At Annual Meeting how Wildlife Beachkeepers can assist the Alliance in education, protection and conservation of our indigenous species. Dune Preservation&Restoration The most important pressing issue is garnering island support for the restoration of Quietwater Beach, from Morgan Park to the Habitat protection is one of the biggest goals both on a short range, and long range perspective. Again, education is key, and not only visitor education, but educating locals as well. There is a proposed plan to bring back the Please Respect the Dunes, Use Walkovers signs that once donned the island. The Beachkeepers welcome more volunteers to join. Anyone interested can go online to www. pbadvocates.org or email Chairman JJ Waters at jjwaters101@ gmail.com Famous and The Flounderettes Friends, fans and former Flounders employees gathered on Flounders Beach to hear The Producers in concert, October 7.

A: The option to Like something is a way of linking to friends, but it is also a clever marketing technique. When you click the thumbs up symbol, indicating that you like an item on Facebook, you are consenting to become part of a complex advertising and marketing campaign. The marketing campaign uses a technique known as viral marketing to connect to people in your list of friends. From there, the messages go to the friends of your friends, and so on. Facebook also maintains a service that provides news feeds to your account. If you indicate that you like a product, then advertisements about that product can be included in the news feeds that come to you. If you clicked on an advertisement, the link to that product will be displayed in your If you indicate that you liked something that a friend posted, tion from Facebook. You can remove things that you have liked by clicking unlike. For businesses, putting the By Joe Stukey Your Computer PalBytes and Bitsthumbs-up symbol on their websites can be a great marketing tool because of the number of people who see their advertisement after just one person clicks on it. Once a person indicates that they like a brand or product, they very rarely remove it from their list, even if they stop liking it. Facebook users also spend a lot of time looking at their news feeds, which contain a lot of product ads. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

Sunday Ticket In an earlier column about my Aunt Miriam and her black friend, Cat, I mentioned that Cat did not read or write. He just never had the opportunity to learn. We knew little or nothing about his childhood. But Cat was smart. He could tell you all the details of his primary job on Uncle Husseys farm. Cat was in charge of caring for the chickens. And they had lots of chickens. He kept them watered and fed. He noticed if any chickens appeared to be sick. He took care of the laying hens. He even selected the hen which Aunt Miriam was to bake on Sunday or the fryer which she would fry. Cat was smart, even if he couldnt read. And he loved my Aunt Miriam. And she loved him. Things were different back then in Georgia, but he was like family to her. Aunt Miriam served Cat two meals a day, every day. Cat wouldnt eat what his woman Lou, might try to feed him. He never did trust her. One summer morning Aunt Miriam got Cats breakfast ready but he wasnt there on the back porch where he usually sat. Miriam walked down to Cats house but Lou didnt know where he was either. No one knew where Cat was. Miriam was distraught and didnt know what to do. I dont know how many nights Aunt Miriam cried herself to sleep for Cat, not knowing where he was or if he was dead somewhere. It was a good six months later, in the dead of winter, when Miriam heard some noise on the back porch. She looked out and there was Cat sitting at his table waiting for breakfast. She rushed out there screaming, Cat, where have you been? Cat answered, I dont know Miz Mim, but Im home and Im hungry. Ive come back home. Im sure she cried and I am sure Cat cried, too. Aunt Miriam worked hard to find out what had happened to Cat. Remember, he couldnt read or write. She finally pieced together the story. It seemed some smart men came through town and told Cat he could make a lot of money if he would go with them. So he followed them but no money ever came and Cat realized he had been tricked. Finally he left this group, and he started walking. Where? Which way? He couldnt even read highway signs. I suppose he found people he could talk with and they gave him directions and Im sure some fed him along the way. Maybe he found some odd jobs as he followed some instinct back home. I dont know. Those people had taken Cat all the way to Raleigh, N.C. before he left them. Or did they leave him? How in the world did Cat ever get back to Watkinsville, Georgia? It is close to 400 miles from Raleigh to Watkinsville and Cat was walking. This was well before the major expressways were built and I think Cat would have stuck to the back roads anyway. Cat went right back to his regular routine on the farm and seemed to be just as happy as ever. He was back with his chickens to care for and Lou had gone off with another man so he didnt have to worry about her. And his Miz Mim was feeding him every day, just like always. Life was good again for Cat. Pier McMillan, 9, prepares to play through at the American Legion Putt Putt Tourney hosted on Pensacola Beach October 8.

+ 21 Come if you DAREThe Santa Rosa Island Authority is trying to find its identity and its importance to the overall economic picture of Escambia County. The Board heard from Dr. Rick Harper, executive director of the UWF Office of Economic Development regarding a possible study at their October 12 meeting. I can give you an idea of what the study might look like and what the parameters would be, Dr. Harper said. The following should be included in the study according to Dr. Harper: Spending flows that come into Pensacola Beach from the visitor community over the course of one year Adjustments will be made for impact of the oil spill, hurricane season and reduction of properties in post hurricane periods. Direct spending impacts Creation of jobs as a result of spending Fiscal impacts to local and state government Indirect spending impacts Induced effects to the supply chain and salaries Spending support of jobs throughout the region I would think that it would be important to include the history of revenue growth over the seasons summer, shoulder, and winter; along with a forecast of revenue over time, said Harper. We could also forecast visitor numbers. Dr. Harper then asked what the Board would like to have included in the study. Dave Pavlock, board member, asked how big an impact does Pensacola Beach have on the overall financial might of Escambia County? He also asked what impact it would have if there were no special events such as Blue Angels, concerts and fireworks. Board member Tammy Bohannon added, For the task at hand, we need to break out the benefit of Pensacola Beach, only. I think it would be insightful for the County to see the benefit promotions have on the island. That would be vital and important. Ed Guernsey, Board chairman, said he envisioned the study as providing a backbone for how we approach the future of the island. I think we are headed into a future where the County would eventually decide what our budget is. If we allow ourselves to get caught in that situation, it would be very difficult, said Guernsey. The Board passed a motion to task SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee to meet with Dr. Harper and Dr. Rod Lewis of the Haas Center to prepare a Scope of Work for the Economic Impact Study and to bring it back to the next committee meeting. In an effort to work more closely with the SRIA, Bonfire Jam Promoter Joe Lewis, offered to waive management fees for the first two concerts, split expenses 50/50 with the SRIA, split any shortfalls 50/50 with the SRIA, and split profits 75 percent for Bonfire Jam and 25 percent for the SRIA. All members except Fred Gant approved this revised proposal. A motion was made and passed to accept the proposal for two concerts only, during Spring 2012. Paolo Ghio, Director of Developmental Services, gave the Authority a summary of the flood mitigation process on the beach which targeted homes still at ground level. Thirteen of the 73 dwellings cited have agreed to participate in the mitigation program which offers grants to bring their homes into compliance. Each house that comes into compliance would count very favorably in our insurance rating system, said Ghio. Visitors to Ft. Pickens may soon find the trip will be much easier with the Pensacola-to-thePark Ferry System in the future plans. The construction of the landing pier will commence in January 2012. Superintendent Dan Brown, Gulf Islands National Seashore, pointed out that a ground transportation system may also be developed with solar power shuttles which carry 14 passengers each. We are hoping to be successful in securing these funds, Brown said. They are $16,000 each and we would need a fleet of three. Brown also said that the preIvan attendance at the park was 700,000 visitors per year. As the park continues its clean up program after the hurricane, Brown told the Authority that 80 percent of the entry fee to the park stays with Gulf Islands National Seashore for improvements. The Baskerville Donovan Engineers report by Mike Langston, triggered a discussion of what would happen if the County takes over and runs the beach. Referring to the halting of landscaping on Via de Luna by the County, Board member Fred Gant said, The way the County is handling this landscaping is a look into the future as to how the county will manage this island. DeLuna Fest came to the attention of the Board when SRIA Establishes Beachs Economic ImpactBeach resident Kathi Lewis told the Board the organizers of the event were not in compliance with the American Disabilities Act requirements. My husband is a disabled veteran, Lewis said. Our experience last year at DeLuna Fest was very bad. Sherri Meyers, advocate for the Center for Independent Living in Northwest Florida told the Authority, You have done some very good things here on the island with respect to ADA improvements. I do have concerns, and have had for a long time, about the special events out here. I wrote a letter to Mr. Mitchell (Five Flags Tourism) to discuss DeLuna Fest. There has been no response. Meyers outline of the items which need to be addressed include: reserved handicapped parking, van parking, accessible toilets, layout and travel to events, and numbers of wheelchair seating. She also reminded the Board that their SRIA office bathroom was not in compliance, observing that the doors are too difficult to open. Gant asked the attorney to address the event compliance problem. We should take some kind of modest action. I understand our limits, but we should support our handicapped and veterans, he said. The SRIA meets in committees on Wednesday, November 2 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public. Monique Goodwin of The Wine Bar, right, poured a Pinot Noir for Beach resident Jim Cox to taste while aboard the Wine Trolley, October 2. The trolley, which was sponsored by Antiquarian Traders and The Wine Bar, traveled islandwide during the fourth annual Art and Wine Festival. Passengers experienced a new wine tasting each hour and enjoyed music performed by the Pensacola Beach Songwriters.

Lunch 11 AM TO 2 PM Studio98HAIR DESIGNS 939-8800 Sat 10 to 5 FULL SERVICE HAIR SALON By Candace SegarI think one of the greatest experiences of Halloween is being unrecognizable. I never wanted to be a princess or a fairy or anything remotely connected to that genre. I wanted to be scary and make people shake in their boots when they took a look at me. I accomplished the former, but not the latter, but hey what do you I decided I would compile some Halloween memories from my brother-in-law Gene, my sister Janie and my husband Ralph. This is a nostalgic walk through Halloween in the 50s and 60s. Gene Segar remembers the following: We were out trick or treating and when we went to one of the houses, the person that came to the door was the Principal of our school. This was the elementary school, not the high school. He gave us bags of popcorn. His last name was Allen. Dont think I ever knew his I would have freaked out if I had seen my Principal, in a good way, of course. I also would have been freaked out to get a bag of popcorn. I was in it for the candy. Janie Waters Dundas remembers the following: In the 50s, it was not necessary for an adult to accompany children when trick or treating. The rules were clear. If a house did not have the front porch light on, you did not go there. The most exasperating rule was that the older child (me) had to take her younger sibling (the author of this column) along with her for the evening. The younger sibling was sure to tattle if the older sibling should, by chance, happen to meet another older friend of the opposite sex, and heaven forbid, get kissed under the Halloween moon. If it wasnt cutting into my getting candy time, I wouldnt have said a word because I can keep a secret! Plus she didnt mention the cherry bombs which were being lit, another crowd pleaser, that once again cut into my getting candy time. Ralph Segar remembers the following: My Mom had put together an alien costume for me when I was ten-years-old. I decided that it needed antennae to complete the costume; so I put nae. The only thing was, I wanted up with a double metal piece device that was attached to my shoe. It acted as a switch and with each step I took, I was able to make the lights go on and off, thus creating lem was we were walking a mile arrived, my batteries were out of juice, and someone else won the prize for best costume. prize for that ingenious device he built into his shoes at the age of ten. Well thats okay, he won me, and I have been his trick or treat for Halloween ever since. Paolo Ghio, SRIA Director of Developmental Services, is an all-around athlete. An avid diver and runner, Ghio competed in the SRI Triathlon, October time of 1:41 placed him 235 out of 847 competitors. ident Terry Preston is all smiles as she jogged along in the run portion of the SRI Triathlon, October 1 on timer, she posted a time of out of 12 in her division. During a Gulfront press conference last week, Jamie Rodgers of Emerald Coastkeepers announced that the report State of the Coast, is now available online. The Coastkeepers continue to study the topic, seek remedies to environmental impacts and look for long term prevention. Information is available at www.emeraldcoastkeeper.org Judy LOignon aced one of the holes during the American Legion Putt Putt at Tiki Island on October 8. It just happened to be the hole with a tee-sign posted in memory of her late husband, Chuck who was one of the founders of the event.

Half Price T-Shirt Nite w/Big D & The Nuts The Mainstream Halloween Bash w/Kyle Parker Band $500 Costume Contest @ midnight Kyle Parker Band Encore What great weather we've been having! It's a perfect time to get out and enjoy this paradise we are lucky enough to live in. That's just what I did last Friday on my day off. I headed out to Perdido Key to throw a line and check out what's been happening out there. It was such a perfect day for surf fishing. No sooner had I tossed it out, I got a bite. The first one was a hard-tail. Oh well, as I threw out again. Another hit. This was much more to my liking a Pompano! And, then another. Seemed like this was going to be my day. Even the dolphins were playful all day, cruising the shoreline and jumping out of the water as if they were spinner dolphins. For those of you who like throwing the net, now is the time to be on the water. Mullet were everywhere and will continue to be. I spent a wonderful day on the water and caught the limit 6 pompano, and yes, we ate good that night. You can, too. They are hitting very well on shrimp. The best fishing, however, has been the very big Spanish Mackerel that everyone has been talking about. You would think they are Kings, there's so much size to many of these. Look along the beaches and you will see lots of fish activity and the Spanish are following them. Right now live bait is your best bet for these. Flounder are making their way to the Gulf for their annual spawn. Don't go without Finger Mullet to drop on some of the deeper structures. And again, remember to be patient with these. Redfish are the up and coming fish to catch. Their annual fall run is starting and there are plenty of Bull Reds coming in. Early evening is when I've been hitting these. They are hungry guys! Plenty of Amberjack and Grouper if you are out on the boat. Plenty of Red Snapper, too. Make sure you are releasing the Snapper; we've had our season with them. So what are you waiting for? People come here for our wonderful white beaches, sunny fall weather and the best fishing around. Grab a kid and go fishing!
