Somehow, she always considered it part of her job to make purchases along the way. She loved special flight tickets she had purchased from Linda Belcher at Gulf Breeze Travel. The tickets were relatively inexpensive since they were always part of a group which hadnt quite sold out. The last one of those specials we did together was a three night, four day trip to Freeport in the Bahamas. So, we packed our bags, grabbed our passports and off we went to New Orleans to join our group. Liz was the driver and the convertible into the exit to the parking garage. Then, she started easing it slowly backward. I dont was that day. Thanks to the lucky gods, it was not on that ramp. That really didnt bother us much, so we went over to the airport, checked our luggage, validated our tickets, and had a wonderful Cajun dinner in the Airports premier restaurant. Then it was time to meet our traveling group. We found them in a designated room, all New Orleans school teachers, all females, all pretty, and all black. And they were the most hilarious, fun loving people we had been around in a while. They put most of Pensacola Beach and all of New Orleans partiers to shame. We bunch of women. (We had been snow skiers, and basketball fans in other groups. Somehow we didnt always mesh with them.) didnt know who we were and we didnt really care. I took my seat between a young teacher and a young Liz, and announced that I was going to sleep. I did, but not before someone with a big bag lars in it. I did. Then, fell asleep. When I awakened, the bag was at my feet, now filled to You won it, Liz said. It Oh my gosh, gambling funds from Heaven. Like I said, these ladies were real swingers. Unfortunately, we never saw them again after the plane landed. We arrived in Freeport about three in the morning and the taxis, which were not taxis, lined up to take us to the Princess Hotel. The taxis appeared to me to be piles of vintage station wagons held together with duct tape. However, off we went to the Princess in our not-so-stylish carriages. All I had on my mind was survival until I could get into my bed at the hotel. After we put our luggage in our room, Liz said, Cmon, Mom. We have to go to the Casino. We can gamble tomorrow, I uttered. What coupon? I asked. The one Linda Belcher she said. By now she has a hold of my hand and was dragging me across the street into the Casino where dollars in tokens. Liz went to the biggest slot in the place, put the token in, and pulled the lever. She won $150, enough to buy a leather coat in the straw market. The next morning, Liz was up early, dragging me out of bed. announced. I thought this was a vacation, I sleepily replied. She then admitted she had signed us up for four morning trips, and the cost would be on our bill. So, after a hurried breakfast, we boarded the bus and took a tour of the tiny houses in Freeport and later trekked through a rum factory. I got a free bottle of rum, then we went back through a modest suburb which according to the spiel on the bus, was the site of small homes, owned and occupied sometimes by American celebrities. The other three field trips were uneventful. The Magic Gardens. Ho hum. The marketplace eating conch, than there were people eating conch. And the final morning we went to the Atlantic Ocean to celebrate the Bahamian Farewell Beach Party. The beach was caked brown sand with boulders sticking up out of it. Not what we were used to. The hosts, whoever they were, served rum drinks and hot dogs and started several contests which Liz entered and won. She was especially good at the spaghetti eating contest. Her prize was a bottle of rum. Did we ever have any fun on that special from Gulf Breeze Travel. Yes. We loved the fire dancers at the night club and we whiled away many hours and many dollars at the Casino. We led a contingent of Bahamians and Americans in a Saints March at Jimmie Bs Outdoor Bar. The band knew the song and the beat and we all had white paper napkins to wave. We later marched in an authentic Junkanoo parade, by being in the right place at the right time. Once we were settled on the plane headed for New Orleans, a good looking young guy asked if he could sit with us. He then proceeded to politely ask questions. Liz and I both decided he was a Narc. He rode all the way with us and checked our luggage at bottles of Kahlua and a bunch of lingerie and night clothes, he decided we were awfully innocent or awfully clever. He smiled and bid us goodbye. I guess he checked our passports which between us read from Pensacola Beach with destinations of Mexico City, Columbia, Guatemala, Belize etc. Mom, do we look like drug dealers? Liz asked. No, they all wear heavy gold chains around their necks, I said. Now, be sure you take the exit ramp and well be home in a few hours.

The great powers of World War I, who signed the Treaty of Versailles to end the War that supposedly would end all wars, would have felt their sting. The last question the Trivia Master asked, was in honor of Veterans Day, Where was the treaty signed? Obviously, in France at Versailles. Jayne Drees Redmond was the She has drawn the line in the sand now. Where is her brother Sgt. Matt Drees, the Challenger, hiding? A horde of correct answers followed Jayne, who won by only six minutes. Correct players were Dan McGrath, Lady a brief history of the Civil War as her answer. The peace treaty was signed at Appomattox Courthouse, in April of 1865. She promptly corrected herself in her next email, Oops, wrong war. How about the Palace of Versailles, thus protecting her unsullied reputation. Steve and Tricia Smith were next to send the right answer. Next came Diana Harvey, Tim Pike, who is the Porter Manager at the Holiday Inn Express; Chuck Steele, brilliant publisher of the Sandspur; Bob Dority, Chrissy Cook and Kathy Cristoff. Professor Deb Friedman, Pensacola State College, and Queen Shugah of the Pensacola Beach Wooly Boogers emailed, The answer is the French Versailles Palace of Louis XV in the Hall of Mirrors Ballroom. And, last but by no means, least, the Duchess of the Dunes, was Prague, which she corrected to Versailles. She then issued the following warning to any pretenders who may be trying to steal her former title as Queen of Wrong Answers. I shall tender a guess at this one---Prague? As it doesn't seem to matter if I am right or wrong, and I am amazed and shocked that someone else is interested in being the Queen of Wrong Answers. That title came with hard, thoughtful and thought out wrong answers; and, I named myself ( tongue in cheek). This person has no tenure, for heavens sake. I certainly hope that the Trivia Master would not consider taking away my hard worked-for former title. Besides the way things are going, I may need to return to that positionwhich should be held for me in perpetuity. Duchess of the Dunes and formerly known as the Queen of Wrong Answers. The Trivia Master herewith declares your title as safe, Duchess. The new question concerns a weird current event. To whom did Muammar robe? A) Condoleezza Rice B) Lady Gaga C) Hillary Clinton Whoever gets the answer to designer Island Times t-shirt. Since this is multiple choice, you will be limited to sending only one answer. Your counted. Hurry to your computer and email your answer with trivia in the subject line to islandtimes@ bellsouth.net. Be sure to include your name and phone number. Deadline to answer is Tuesday, November 22. Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving. No KnighthoodBob Shubob, who dispenses good humor and great drinks at Flounders, sends a warning to all Trivia players across the world. Shubob is sure he would be a Knight at the Trivia Roundtable if he had access to email. Shubob knows his history, beach lore and general tidbits of useless knowledge, but he will not tackle the tedious task of emailing the answers. So, he remains an unrecognized knight, albeit in shining armor. Lets All PartyThe smell of birthday cake should have wafted sweetly across the island on November 4 since there were so many special folks celebrating. Island Realtys John Pinzino and Villa Sabines Jim Cox share the day with Melody Spink and Leigh Weaver. Happy birthday, all.A PlusBeach School grad Reddon McLaurine has been a busy guy this fall. The Gulf Breeze Middle School student signed up for honors classes and football. Hes worked hard and it shows. Rednine weeks. Occupying The Big EasyAshley and Charlie Rotenberry spent a couple of days in New Orleans. After cheering the Saints on to a victory over the Bucs, they even passed by the Occupy encampment in the Big Easy. They didnt Occupy very long, they had more partying to do before returning to the Beach. Safe HavenIf you thought you spied Chuck Steele back on the beach for two days, you did. He was taking refuge in his Pensacola Beach home while the coven arrived to visit in Mexico Beach. Chuck hunkered down, kept a Mexico Beach when Lynn gave the all clear. In The SwimPJ Dunne and his Gulf Breeze High teammates made a splash at the Region Swimming them to compete in the State Meet in Orlando last week. During the regionals which were held in St. Augustine November 3, Dunne brought home second places in both the 100 and 200 free. He was part of two winning relay teams. According to mom Mary, the relay teams have some beach connections. The 200 yard relay team is made up of Adam Foley (Beach school graduate and beach resident), Luke Means (beach resident), Adam Gunn (beach lifeguard) and PJ (Beach School graduate). The 400 free relay team is made of Adam Foley, Adam Gunn, Michael Lillo (son of Steve Lillo of Lillo's restaurant), and PJ. The state results were not available at press time. Look for them in the next edition.The Fun Never EndsGena Raymon, the Beachs Sidewalk Social Director, issues a list of names, who are on her Party Patrol. The latest directive from Gena reads like a whos who of Beach Birthdays... Melissa Woods November 1, Dianne Schenck November 6, Chuckster November 7, Stacey Wright November 23, and JT November 24. She sent a hush-hush email to gather friends at The Grand Marlin on November 11. There was a designated dress code of royal blue and fashion forward high heels. If you cannot guess who the honoree is, ask Gena, if you can catch her between parties.Back OnlineDanah Gibson is back online, posting on Facebook and busily cutting out Nauga ears as part of her physical therapy. She is immensely touched by the outpouring of support she has received. Danah adds that she is getting better everyday.

PAGE 5 Island Times November 15, 2011 www.PensacolaBeachMardiGras.com It took about sixty thousand dollars out of the Santa Rosa Island Authoritys contingency fund wallet to get their planners, EDSA, a seat at the table with the County engineers who have taken charge of the Master Plan. The dramatic change-over for the Core Area of Pensacola Beach had previously been approved by a talented Steering Committee and the Santa Rosa Island Authority. But when the County sent its hired staff of engineers from Baskerville Donovan to review the plan, the engineers said it could not be built according to that plan. However, the Steering Committee which had never been disbanded, wanted more answers. They requested SRIA honored the request by approving the extra expenditure in Board meeting, November 2. Elected SRIA board member Thomas Campanella voiced his assessment of the situation as it now exists. The Steering Committee prioritized a number of phases, he said. We are going to pay to rehash what EDSA has already showed us. And there will be more money at each phase. Just keep in mind you are looking at a continued expense. Jim Cox, Steering Committee member, made it clear that the sixty thousands dollar fee would not include any input from the stakeholders. I just want to make sure you understand what you are getting for $60,000. The County engineering firm has never discussed the toll booth, Road. What about the boardwalk system and how will things tie together? There is no discussion on a ferry system, he said. Buck Lee, SRIA executive director, quoting a letter received from County Administrator Randy Oliver, said, SRIA must commit that the result of this process will conclude the Master Planning phase of the program as our only goal is to and successfully and begin project implementation. I have no illusions about who is driving this bus, said Ed Guernsey, Board chairman. Get on or get off. We are at a point that is critical, if we dont move forward it will be really hard to get this bus moving again. I think we need to put the engineers in a position to get something buildable. Out of this controversial and emotional morass, it is clear that Oliver is determined to bring the entire situation to a conclusion. He wants a Plan with two buildable alternatives to come from the BDI engineers and EDSA. Then, the following process will Donovan, Jr. of BDI: Let me make it clear about there is coordination between BDI and EDSA. Sharing info and asking, Why couldnt it work? What are the principles we are trying to achieve? Second, we will develop draft alternatives with hard costs. Those are submitted to the County for review. The County has 7 days to ask for more information and give input. Our team has to take the comments and options (placing a road under a pedestrian walkover is complex). The goal will be to develop two alternatives to present to the Board with costs estimates. All this will be done in a non-emotional way by people who like physics. After that, there is an opportunity for the SRIA to develop comments. We understand that a functional consensus is really important all the stakeholders must be pushing in the same direction. This process is designed to get that functional consensus. The SRIA board approved the expenditure. Board, at its November 2 meeting: q Voted unanimously to approve the renewal of the parking agreement in the areas north of Aloha Liquors and the Marina for a period of three years. The lot is open to the public. q review the Beachs compliance with the American Disabilities Act. Kathi Lewis, resident, said not in compliance and should be cited. q Heard Mike Langston, BDI engineers report. He said the Master Plan situation would be closed within 30 days. Also adjustments to turn lane striping on Via de Luna may allow for the landscape plan to move forward. q Buck Lee met with Bonfire Jam on the two proposed concerts in April and September next year. The Board retained the right to review or cancel the second concert, if they did not q Maureen LaMar, Beach Chamber Executive Director, report that visitors were up 15 percent over last year during October. Board Member Vernon Prather commented that he enjoyed the Chambers newsletter, Beach Blast. I like to see the information on beach businesses and programs, he said. The next meeting of the SRIA will be committees in the boardroom at 1 Via de Luna, Wednesday, November 16 at 5 p.m. All meetings are open to the public. County Administrator Wants Master Plan to Reach a Conclusion SoonOne of the Beachkeeper environmental teams has dubbed themselves The Trashy Ladies, but their mission to improve recycling efforts on Pensacola Beach has become so popular that a few men have joined their ranks. We have to give up our name, said Lois Hausman, team member. It was fun while it lasted. The team which focuses on recycling and litter issues hosted an informational forum for condominium managers, November 3. Amanda Handrahan, recycling coordinator for the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority made an offer to the managers that was hard to refuse. Theres no charge. Theres no contract, she said. If for some reason you dont like it, you can cancel. No problem. Condos on Pensacola Beach can sign up for the recycling service and will be issued containers suitable to their number of units. Containers range in size from single cans to large dumpsters. Programs are tailored to meet each condos needs. Seventy-five percent of what is thrown in the garbage is recyclable, said Handragarbage you have, the less you pay for pick up. So it creates a savings. There is no need to wash or prepare items for recycling. Pizza boxes and peanut butter jars, which were once considered garbage, can both be thrown in the recycling bins. ECUA intends to make recycling as easy as possible for consumers. We still cannot recycle the plastic grocery bags in bulk, Handrahan commented. But, you can put you recyclables in one of the grocery bags, and throw it in the bin. Residents and visitors are equally likely to recycle according to the presentation. Vacationers, who come from other areas where recycling is the norm, view a lack of recycling as a negative. Large items, which are sometimes left behind by visitors or discarded at the end of the season will be picked up by a special truck. Items such as plastic beach furniture or aluminum chairs can be recycled, but require a call to ECUA for pick up. Jim Cox, president of the Pensacola Beach Advocates, was complimentary of the service. I was surprised about Condo Boards resistance to recycling, but it has been a huge success at visitors, he said. It promotes a good image. We care for the community and the environment. In order to promote the good image, a list of condos which offer recycling will be on display at the Pensacola Beach Visitors Information Center. the Beachkeepers, the environmental committee of the Pensacola Beach Advocates, log on to www.pbadvocates.org.Pizza Boxes To Peanut Butter Jars, No Problem For Recycling Programs

A simple two word exclamation that has a variety of meanings, ranging from the automatic response to anytime some gives us something no matappreciation for what others have given. Thank you is also used sarcastically when someone gives us something we don't like or need; or we use it to abruptly end a conversation. In any case, that simple statement is tossed around in conversations all the time. Though there is a time in what we are thankful for, I think that all of us have had that cringe moment on Thanksgiving Day just before eating. Our mouths are watering as we see that gleaming into the serving dish. The sweet smell of freshly baked rolls and the heaping pile of mashed potatoes are just in front of us. In our minds, all we want to do is devour this meal before us and then someone suggests that as part of grace we are all going to share what we are thankful for. Our focus is so sniped on that food, we can hardly think. is bringing you back to that same challenge, but with a different twist. Now, I may get a little too existential, which is a philosophical term that means, "heavy." (insert chuckle) When we open ourselves to the reality of creation and allow the wonder of everything that is before us to amaze us, it is only then that we can be truly thankful. This is not merely the concept of wonder, but the actual lived experience and connection to our being. When we break through experiences as ordinary and refuse to allow our preconceptions to rob us of richness of the mystery of being, it is then that we realize that this great creation we live in, including ourselves, is a gift. We did not create ourselves, the air we breathe, the earth we trod upon, and waters we surf on. We gives thanks, not because we are being forced to as part of a pre-meal ritual, but because it is the only rational response to reality in which we live. When someone asks us, What are you thankful for? Our response should be Lets get some coffee... this could take a while.

The Beach Church Fellowship Hall was standing room only when 275 leaseholders arrived to get updates on the tax cases at the meeting hosted by the Pensacola Beach Advocates. In his brief presentation, Bosso offered a new wrinkle to the tax discussion. I am not an attorney, said Bosso. But my attorney has found a case that indicates when a lease is silent as to taxation, then the landlord is responsible for paying the ad valorem taxes. There are a number of older this category. My lease requires that I pay a lease fee and that I build on this property within a certain time. And, meeting that requirement, I can enjoy the property peacefully and quietly for the balance of the lease. It did not say anything about paying ad valorem taxes, said Bosso. In a phone interview, Bossos attorney Jeff Sauer one in Florida that speaks to this fact, and said, We will bring action to ask the landlord to pay the taxes owed. The Santa Rosa Island Authority and Escambia County may be considered as the landlord. On another positive note, Danny Kepner of Shell, Fleming, Davis and Menge, attorney for the 2,400 residential leaseholders, said, The door to the Supreme Court is open. Although there were adverse rulings in the Navarre land case and the Pensacola Beach case on improvements, both cases were of Appeals as a matter of great public importance. Kepner concluded, The question, which is of great public importance, is whether or not the Pensacola Beach leaseholders are equitable owners noting that they are without a perpetual lease nor do they have an option to purchase. I hope the Supreme Court will agree that you are not equitable owners. The Supreme Court has not yet said whether they will hear the cases, but Kepner surmised that if they do, oral arguments could take place in Summer 2012. Residential leaseholders who are participating in the lawsuit will be contacted via mail with additional information. Attorney Ed Fleming, McDonald, Fleming and Moorehead, who successfully reprein a valuation case against the Escambia County Property Appraiser, gave a brief presentation. According to Fleming, the Property Appraisers valuation was about 300 percent higher than it should have been. Fleming pointed out that in the ruling, the judge noted that the land on longed to the government. The ruling in favor of the leaseholders is being appealed by the Property Appraiser. The case is scheduled to be heard November 29. A question and answer period followed the presentations where topics ranged from Supreme Court justices competence to the amount of allowable interest on unpaid taxes. To address the question of the 12 percent interest that is accruing on unpaid taxes while the cases are being litigated, Kepner replied, You are subject to that. It is part of the law in the State of Florida. There is no remedy in the statute for a reduction, or change. Write to your legislators and tell them it is ridiculous. The court cannot change the statute, only the Legislature can do that. Both Kepner and Fleming spoke to the option of challenging the taxation of the land which was included on tax bills for the Fleming said, You must challenge it. It is wrong. You Take action right now. Challenge the legality of the taxation and the amount, given the overstateholders plan to challenge the taxation on the land. Kepner agreed, It is our tion of the improvements and the land. The statute gives us 60 days the tax on the improvements is a continuation of what we have a separate case on the land. It is different and should be treated differently. Should the Supreme Court rule in favor of the leaseholders, Kepner and Fleming did not agree on the reliability of receiving a refund of taxes paid. Kepner explained the process, as outlined in the statute, requires a State Department of Revenue. The Department of Revenue tells the local tax collector that they have to return the money. The tax collector goes back to Escambia County Commissioners, the School Board and Water Improvement Board and whoever else received a portion of the taxes collected and asks for the refund of the tax money, said Kepner. If the agency does not have the money immediately, then they legally must put the refund in their budget for the next year. Fleming remarked, The only way to be certain of getting your tax money refunded is not to pay it. Otherwise you will be relying on the judge to order the refund and you are relying on those who collected the money to have the money to pay the refund. A point made during one answer applied to all questions, if a person is not a member of the lawsuit, then the rulings will not be applied to them. The Tax Liaison Committee representative Lila Cox reminded attendees that a list of plaintiffs is maintained at their website, so leaseholders can frequently asked questions will also be posted online at www. pbeachtaxsuit.com. In his closing remarks, Pensacola Beach Advocates President Jim Cox encouraged all residents to join the PBA. Applications are available online at www.pbadvocates.org.

Coronation at 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Potluck Thurs, Nov 24 Bring a dish! Join the Fun! The Power of Advertising Early in my working career, I lived in Calhoun, Georgia and later in Dalton, Georgia. This was the center of the chenille bedspread business which grew into tufted robes, bath sets, scatter rugs and later on into the gigantic tufted carpet industry. I was lucky enough to be in on much of that early growth. Most of the owners of these plants had little or no advertising or promotion experience. They just went to New York or Chicago, walked into the home offices or retail stores with samples of spreads or bath sets under their arms and asked for the person in charge. I was with one tufting company when we got the Sears Roebuck account. Our business in the bath set and scatter rug area actually doubled in two years time. It was fantastic, but Sears knew more about how to make and price these rugs than we did. Although we did not control our own destiny, Sears was good for us. We did have a problem with some of the latex backed rugs when Sears wanted them packed in the new Poly bags. Normally, the rugs were simply folded and placed in cardboard boxes where they got some aeration. The latex used as the rug backing had a noticeable rotten egg odor when the rugs got hot in the poly bag. Well, I had the bright idea to just add a little perfume to the latex. That worked okay but our latex supplier did not want that perfume smell in his plant so we added a little perfume to the rug dye bath. That worked and Sears was happy but Calhoun, Georgia soon became known to all those Ohio tourists going up and down Highway 41 as that sick, sweet smelling North Georgia town. Obviously we had to get past this and were able to convince our label printer to apply a very small amount of odorant to the label which was slipped into the poly bag when the rug was packed. Actually this helped Dalton since there was a local carpet dyeing manager using a smelly dyeing additive who needed some help and we became good friends. There was a local bath mat and scatter rug company, Maples Rug Company, whose owner was determined to grow his business by promoting the local employee aspect of the industry. Along with the local newspaper, they instigated a local beauty contest to choose Miss Resaca Beach. The promotion included local bands, and arts and crafts displays and they really poured on the publicity. This was unique because there is no such thing as a beach in Resaca, Georgia. The rather small Conasauga River does meander through Resaca but the banks are narrow and I never saw anything but turtles on them. Mr. Maples entered his very lovely daughter, Marla, in the first Miss Resaca Beach Contest and it was no surprise when she took first place. Those front page pictures in the Dalton as well as Atlanta papers really put Marla Maples, and our scatter rug business, on the map. The Maples Rug promotion was so widely acclaimed, that The Donald Trump got wind of it. I really dont know the details here but I did learn that Marla Maples ended up married to Donald Trump. I dont think the marriage lasted many years but Marla Maples certainly put a new front on Dalton, Georgia. Pensacola Beachs Sidewalk Star Gazes, hosted by the Escambia Amateur Astronomers, are complete for this year, but the series was a success. Dewey Barker, Star Gaze and Event Coordinator, said, We had a great summer this year at our gazes at both Casino Beach and Ft Pickens. We had some great weather and there was only one weekend that was cloudy, rained out. We estimate a combined public attendance at well over 1000 for all of our events this year. College Professor Dr. Wayne Wooten reminds gazers that there is plenty to see in the November skies. Setting in the southwest is the teapot shape of Sagittarius, which marks the heart of our Milky Way Galaxy. The best view of our Galaxy lies overhead now. The brightest star of the northern hemisphere, Vega dominates the sky in the northwest. Visit the www.skymaps.com and download the map for more details. We hope that many of you had an opportunity to come to the Beach for a view through our scopes, said Barker. Our club is willing to set up some telescopes at your next school, scout, church or other social event.

A: The scam artists can get your home phone number from public directories on the Internet. One of my customers said that several people on her block had received the same kind of call last week. Typically, the caller tells you that they have been notified that you have problems (usually viruses) on your computer that need to be resolved. Usually, they will say that they work for Microsoft. They will also want to be paid to resolve your problems. Microsoft does not make solicitation calls! There are several steps that you can take to protect yourself once you receive that kind of call. First, write down any contact information that they give you and report it to the local authorities. Do not give them your credit card number. Do not give them any account names or passwords. Do not let them take control of your computer. By taking control of your computer, they can install software that allows personal information to be collected and used for identity theft. They will often ask you to go to their website to enter personal information. Dont do that either. If you did any of the above before you realized that you were being scammed, you should immediately change all of your account passwords, scan your computer for malicious software and viruses, and possibly cancel any credit cards that were used in that transaction. Make sure that you have good antivirus software installed and have the latest virus protection updates. After being caught up in one of these scams, a local resident recently was surprised to see that the scammer had taken control of her email account. They had sent messages, using her name, to all of her friends telling them that she was stranded in London and needed money to get home. To prevent her from following up with her friends, the scammers deleted her list of email contacts. So, once again, always hang up on the scam phone calls.

Tips for ship shape holiday packing are provided by Linda and Wally Schiessl at the UPS Store in Gulf Breeze. 1) Pack your precious presents in corrugated boxes with plenty of cushioning material. Do not wrap shipping boxes in paper. 2) Liquor boxes are not allowed even if there is no liquor in them. The Post Office cannot accept them either. 3) Shipping of alcohol and tobacco products is prohibited. 4) Bubble wrap all breakable items. Cushion with at least 2 inches of Styrofoam "peanuts" around each item. Peanuts or other packing cushions can be purchased. (Newspaper traditionally has been used. It's a good way to recycle Island Times!) Rule of thumb when a box is shaken, no sound should be heard. 5) Secure along all seams of the box with shipping tape. Shake, Rattle And Roll Its Shipping TimeStrapping tape is a good option. Masking tape, electrical tape and duct tape should not be used. 6) If box is being reused, remove all previous labels to avoid confusion. 7) Ship early. 8) Bring items to be shipped to the UPS Store and we will gladly pack and ship.

Lunch 11 AM TO 2 PM Studio98HAIR DESIGNS 939-8800 Sat 10 to 5 FULL SERVICE HAIR SALON By Candace SegarGorder Takes Title, Continues To Win At Texas Hold Em TablesI am an activist! I have never thought of myself in that regard, but I know now it is true. Two months ago, I ordered a chandelier from Restoration Hardware. I have coveted this chandelier for over a year, and decided that since I am back working, to go for it. In September I took the plunge and bought this beautiful, unusual crystal chandelier. The delivery date was scheduled for Novemit was time to schedule the delivery. I decided on a Wednesday and woke up early in anticipation of my delivery. I am working night shift so getting up before 11a.m. is quite early for me. The anticipation was buildasking for directions. I wanted to go and get it, but alas the poor Miata could not carry this chandelier so I had to wait for delivery. When the truck arrived, and the two men lifted my box containing my light from the truck, my heart sank to my toes. The box had been opened. It was not opened from the top along the seam, but along three sides, and it wasnt taped. The truckers assured me that this was the warehouses policy. I called the warehouse, and they I accepted the box as they brought it in and opened it up. I wrote on their delivery slip that the box that everything was there and would call Restoration Hardware. I gave that back to the two men, and they ran out the door. What greeted me, blew my mind. My chandelier had been desecrated. All the crystal had been stripped off. The directions were gone and other parts had been replaced with cheap garbage. I called Restoration Hardware and asked them questions and then told them what had happened. They went into action and immediately and sent a second chandelier out to me. I called the local trucking company, but no answer. Imagine that! I called the parent company in Ohio, and they patched me through to the local company. The lady I spoke with wanted me to fax her a copy of what I had written on the trucking slip. I did. When I tried to call and swer. I called several times with no response. I called Restoration Hardware and asked for an email address to report this event. They were very kind and told me not to worry about it. I wondered who else has been a victim of this type of crime; who, in the future, would be a victim of this type of crime? I knew what I had to do. I called the parent trucking company in Ohio. I asked to speak to a manager. I relayed my entire story and requested the names and addresses of the CEO or President for both companies. He gave me the presidents name and address for the Ohio company and the general managers name and address for the local trucking company. My plan was to take pictures, write a report in the form of a cover letter, get a copy of what the chandelier should have looked like from Restoration Hardware, discuss the fallacy of their white glove policy and also include a copy of the delivery slip for the packets. Restoration Hardware became extremely interested and also volunteered a name and address to be copied on everything. My husband Ralph, took the pictures as I wrote the cover letters. He also mailed out the packets for me to trucking company and to Restoration Hardware. My last action was to notify the local trucking company to make sure they understood that under no circumstances would I accept another opened box. It has been noted; they assured me. Restoration Hardware was surprised I was willing to go to these lengths to rectify this situation. I had to do the right thing for them and for myself. My thought is this let the trucking company policy will change and just maybe this will prevent this from happening to another person I can only hope it will!
