It was not warm and full of hope like that of Dr. Martin Luther King. Actually, it was kind of crazy. I was in Cyberspace with a few newspaper buddies, set to interview me. Where the heck is Cyberspace? The dictionary tells it is not exactly a space as much as it is a mental existence, a system of linked computer networks, etc., thought of as an unlimited environment, as an unlimited thought for accessing information, communications, etc. Does that sound like me? Well, maybe if the etcs apply. So here I am lying on a huge occupants only they truly belong there. Im only dreaming. Finally, one lifted his head and said, They are here for Ms. Cooper to talk about newspapering in the old days. Okay, shoot, Mr. Whatever Your Name Is. He wasnt quite ready for the ball to be in his court. He removed his pocket protector and began to rearrange the nuts and bolts on his interview device. He clicked something that sounded important, Tell us about hot type, he said. First are all interviews like this? I asked. A bunch of cyber spacers in one bed with the subboys and girls hang out on beds to get one story? No, but you are special. Why is that? You are the only person locally who can help us. That ol newspapering thing, huh? Mainly. Go ahead. Lie down. Ill do my best. But, I never did have much to do with production, however, I was always fascinated by hot type which is the process of a linotypist to keep the metal in his little pan of liquid hot at all times, so when he sets a line it will fall into place and becomes a line in the stories just like the rest. He maintains a low fire below his metal. Did you know any linotypists? Only one. It was in Louisiana and his hands were all covered with scars from burns. Must have been a great career in the summer. A fan maker may have been a great career back then. No air conditioning for any of us. Do you know where we could get one? What would you do with a linotype machine? Oh, you know people get such a crush on antiques. A printer used to have one over on Cervantes. Maybe, its still there. Oh, how cool. So very cool, remarked the Cyber Girl. Mostly, I wrote for newspapers, didnt do hot type, I continued. Including one of my own right here on Pensacola Beach. I know you didnt mess with cutters, waxers, humongous typesetting machines, trucks, and employees as, I had. My daughter publishes the Island Times on the basis of fantastic computer skills and her computer. Shes so good with color photos, and all kinds of graphics, she can enhance her stories and never run a newspaper without loving all your surroundings cats, kids, birds, parents, lovers all Gods creatures. Thats why I slipped by. You were very well respected. Thats why Im going to tell you a secret that is the same ever hit the streets. There are still people who like to hold a cup of latte and the morning paper to digest the news before going to work. There is no substitute. So my dear Cyber Maties you have done a pretty good job considering you never got out of bed this morning. Its all about the people. Without people, where would your paper be? Would you like to write about mad cow disease? But I am only Jane of the Old Days of Newspapering. Here you are in Cyberspace. And, I only had a dream. glass doors. Jane

IN THE NIK OF TIMEA happy-to-be-here tourist from Texas went charging into the Gulf of Mexico behind the Hampton Inn on Wednesday, November 16. The powerful Gulf overwhelmed him, but Pensacola Beach lifeguard Nikolas Nik Sharp was on the scene and resSafety Director Bob West said Sharp has been a lifeguard since 2007, and was recognized as Pensacola Beach Lifeguard of the Month for July 2010. Sharp saved the mans life all in a days work for the humble hero. SCHOOL DAZESamantha and David Schachner work during the summers assisting their mom Beth at Pensacola Beach Properties.

The crew aboard The Entertainer rescued three anglers from the choppy Gulf waters who abandoned the Sea Spook II, which was sinking. Accordone crew member recorded the heroics on his personal video cam which he wears to chronicle their PELICAN FANProfessional photographer Jim McDade has been capturing wildlife images on the island for decades. He has some amazing osprey and pelican photos in his gallery. Hes almost always at work at Pensacola Photo on Chase Street. Stop by. He will chat about almost any topic. LOVE THAT BOOGIE MANBonnie McDonald and her very own Boogie Man, David, celebrated thirty-five years of marriage on Sunday, November 20. Mother Nature provided warm sunny weather on Pensacola Beach for their day long party. SAILING INTO ANOTHER YEARWind for his sails and a sand needed to celebrate his birthday on November 19. The Key Sailing owner welcomed another year in beach partying style, but was back at work on Sunday at his Soundside shop. Most trivia players were intrigued by and answered Condoleezza Rice, the saucy little diplomat who was the Secretary of State for George W. Bush. Through no fault of her own, she became the target for the affecwas so cute. The story about his photo album bearing only her likeness appeared everywhere. Gad was really a ladies man. The Today, a couple of days after the tyrants death. And the last parawilled his extensive wardrobe to Lady Gaga. That bizarre stroke fueled the Trivia Masters mind. He even managed to catch the Publisher with his multiple choice of Rice, Lady Gaga, and Hillary Clinton. Most of the players thought it was Condi and sent elaborate accounts of the story to prove the point. A few scattered Trivia thoughtfuls worked on the right answer and got it. Up comes Chrissy Cook with the following, I think I am in awe of Lady Gaga, the correct answer. I have seen so many TV clips of her recently and she intrigues me. I learned more about her and believe she dances to the beat of her own drummer, and although I am not sure I would want my grandkids to emulate her, I admire her family for believing in are out of this world! So Lady Gaga has some really fancy clothes and Chrissy Cook has a new designer t-shirt from Island Times Not such a bad deal for either of them. The only other correct answer came from the Duchess of the Dunes, Joanne Brooks. She sent this, My guess is Lady Gaga. Think he has been portrayed as a ladies man, so what a hoot! Yes, Lady Gaga. Love, The Duchess of the Dunes aka The Queen of Wrong Answers. After that a long string of incorrect answers for Condi rolled in, tainted by only one vote for Hillary from Kathy Christoff, because Hillarys wardrobe could use some sprucing up. Sorry Kathy, a generous and noble vote, but wrong. Guesses for Condi included Steve Headley, Jayne Drees, Mike Cook, husband of this weeks champ; Sir Morrie Drees, Dan McGrath, Dianne Furrow, Jim Knell, Debbie Walton and Angeli McMillan, who pleaded her case like a New York attorney. The answer to the trivia question has to be Condoleezza Rice. Here's why: on a 2008 visit she made to Tripoli, the dictator gave her $200,000 worth of gifts, including a ring and a lute. But it wasn't until rebels stormed his Tripoli compound that the depths of the dictator's infatuation were belongings was a carefully composed photo album made up of dozens of images of no one but Rice. So farewell, and good ridold clothes. Hello, Lady Gaga. This question will rest, while we sail into the holidays. The famous and not forgotten Sandspur Republic hosted a Christmas event which drew hundreds to the mythical kingdom on Santa Rosa Sound. The celebration included Boardsailing Santa. This fellow, full of holiday cheer and covered with twinkling lights, would boardsail onto the sandy shores, delighting children and adults alike. Can you name the hardy soul who became famous as Boardsailing Santa? Island Times t-shirt under your Christto send the correct answer to islandtimes@bellsouth.net. Put trivia in the subject line. Be sure to include your name and phone number with your answer. The deadline to answer is Dec. 6.

PAGE 5 Island Times November 29, 2011 The Santa Rosa Island Authority staff presented changes to the Fifty Percent Rule which caused the Committee members one hundred percent concern at the SRIA Committee meetings, November 16. Paolo Ghio, director of Environmental and Developmen tal Services, proposed that the amount of repair or renovation of a structure be monitored for the life of the structure. At the point where the cost of the repair or up grades accumulates to more than structure, the requirement to con standards would be imposed. At issue, is the time frame. Previously, the amount of re petitive damage or repair was calculated to accumulate over a was part of the SRIA policy, but not part of the Land Development Code Ordinance. The proposed lifetime period is an attempt to improve the beachs rating which will lower insurance rates for all leaseholders. Ghio stated, Even if you are repairing each time you are still leaving the structure in harms way. FEMA says you are restoring a house and it is being damaged again, again and again. That is why we went after the grants to help, so leaseholders could afford getting the house out of harms way. Committee Member Vernon Prather commented, This is an opportunity to have a positive im pact or perhaps a not-so-positive one. I want to understand this issue clearly and completely to recognize the magnitude of this. I want all the board members to have the opportunity to as well. The Committee asked for assistance from their architect John Tice. Tice said, Theoretically this approach would encourage those with non-conforming structures to conform and eliminate the risk completely. This is a political decision, not an architectural one. Committee member Thomas Campanella, who lives on the island, recognized this as an issue that needed more discussion. I would like this held in committee until we all understand it better. Timing is in question. You could have 20 percent damage and 20 percent damage then the third storm brings a little bit of damage and you would have to put your house up on stilts, Campanella said. This is a double edged sword. We need to wrap our heads around this better before we vote on this. After reviewing the list of other Florida coun ties and the time frames they have adopted, Committee Member Dave Pavlock made a motion the item stay in commitand ten year time frames. Addition ally, he would like to get input from the Pensacola Beach Advocates. The Committee voted unani mously in favor his motion. The island is showing signs of recovering from oils spills and recession based on the report by Dottie Ford, director of Finance. Ford presented the September Committee announcing that revenues were up $1.2 million. The collections totaled $7,231,264 for the year. Surfs up at the Pensacola Beach Marina. JB Schluter and Lydia Spencer, owners of Innerlight Surf Shops, received approval from the Developmental and Leasing Committee to purchase the property which includes the marina and the former location of The Market. The plans include a surf shop and restaurant. In other business, a parcel of land bordering the outdoor dining patio at Crabs, We Got Em will be placed up for bid. The area, which is currently owned by the SRIA, cannot have a permanent structure built on it and use cannot interfere with the public right-ofway. Proceeds from the sale will go to a contingency fund. Campanella asked why anyone would want to own this. Attorney Karl Boyles, rep resenting Crabs owners, showed the proximity of the parcel to Crabs current leasehold. If successful in bidding, Crabs could increase their outdoor patio area. Dr. Rod Lewis of the Uni versity of West Floridas Haas Center will conduct a study of the economic impact of Pensacola Beach. The scope of the study will include tourism impacts, benchmarks and event analysis, comparison of amenities, tourist research and report on potential new markets. Although tourism impacts are generally viewed through the lens of hotel, resort, restaurant and attraction revenues, tourism actually affects economic growth and development in other vital sectors, said Lewis in his presentation. The studys cost, which was unanimously approved, is $31,500. The Full board of the Santa Rosa Island Authority will meet Wednesday, December 14 at 5 p.m. followed by the Commit tee meetings. These will be the last SRIA Board meetings of the year. The meetings are open to the public.Rules And Robust Reports Fill Island Authority Agenda Even if you are repairing each time you are still leaving the structure in harms way.

(No, the twelve-day season of Christmas did not start with the song. It was the other way around.) The time before Christmas is Advent, a season of preparation for Christmas. Christians prepare for celebrating the birth of Jesus by remembering the longing of the Jews for a Messiah. In Advent, we're reminded of how much we also need a Savior. It is a time to be reminded how God has come to man over the centuries and "Advent" comes from the Latin word adventus, which means "coming" or "visit." If you're unfamiliar with Advent, I expect it might feel odd to think of the weeks before Christmas as something more than Christmastime. However, for much of the Christian world Advent is a rich time of focus on God and there are many ways this happens. Advent Calendars are made to celebrate each day, and person al advent candles are lit waiting for the time to come. For most of my life, Advent played very little role in my pre-Christmas con sciousness. Sometimes Advent calendars are made of wood and each containing some little treasure. It is a way to whet our appetites for Christmas, and somehow move to a more spiritual way of thinking rather than simply buying and receiving gifts. Advent is a way to get us ready, not for a present-opening party, but for a transformational celebration of the birth of Jesus. Happy Advent! Pensacola Beach Community Church participated in the national Mission 1 Food Drive culmi nating on November 11. The Beach Church collected food and monetary donations surpassing their goal of 11 tons by 11-11-11. An 18 wheeler tractor trailer with their collections arrived at the Manna Food Bank November 14 for distribution to local agencies.

I am trying to wind down after a very long and exhausting weekend. All I want to do is enjoy a nice glass of wine and leftover pizza. My family (the Colonel and the Kid) have taken to their designated places in the master bedroom, the only room in the house that still has carpet as opposed to plywood sub-floors. Then it happens. The second most annoying noise I can think of other than about politics the ringing of the telephone and the automated caller ID stating call from the University of Miami. Telemarketer meet the teenager. I got it, yells the Kid. No need to answer. They just want money, says the Colonel, a 1986 graduate of the U. Too late, I mumble. Hello. Hi, this is Megan and I am a junior at the University of Miami. Is Harry Hewson in? This is his assistant and that would be Colonel Hewson, says the Kid. tered Megan replies. Is there a better time when I can reach Mr. Hewson? Now is fine. Just hold please as I get the COLONEL, says the Kid putting way too much emphasis on colonel as he frantically scrolls through his song list on his iPod. It dawns on both the Colonel and me that the Kid is about to Rickroll poor, unsuspecting Megan. Rickrolling is when a person plays the Rick Astley song Never Gonna Give You Up disruptively in a situation or provides a hyperlink seemingly relevant to the topic at hand, but actually leads to Astley's 1986 video of the song. I guess in the Kids mind, a telemarketer calling the house after 8 p.m. is a situation. Heres the Colonel says the Kid as he presses play and the lyrics blast into the receiver and Megans ears. Very proud of himself for just having Rickrolled a junior in college and with the ultimate Cheshire cat grin, the Kid announces that she wont be calling the house again. Or maybe he said she would be calling back at 10. I couldnt hear him over the uncontrollable laughter coming from the Colonel and something about Prince Albert in a can. Well the more I think about it, the Kid is probably right. Megan and the U probably wont be calling us anytime soon because somewhere on that contact sheet off to the side there is a note next to the Colonels name: loony bin at your own risk.

He was a neighbor and also a charter boat Captain. Many charter captains built their own fishing spots using junk they would accumulate and then haul out in the Gulf, often in the dead of night. A popular junk accumulation spot was the shell parking lot between the old Baars Realty building and the water tanks at Little Sabine on Pensacola Beach. I have seen that area just full of washing machines, Volkswagen bodies, and anything else that would sink and provide cover for bait fish to attract the bottom fish. One day the lot would be filled. The next day it would be empty. This obviously wasnt illegal at the time. Today, it would never happen. Captain Warren kept a small notebook with his fishing spots numbered and named and any information on the water depth and compass bearings on anything he could see on the shore. The more compass bearings the better for triangulation of the spots. Of course, this was crude, but it was amazing to see Warren relocate those fishing spots. I asked Warren one time, how long it took the bait fish to find the old car body which had been dropped over. He said the bait fish probably were in the back seat of the Volkswagen before it even hit the bottom. Of course, as the wreck accumulated barnacles and the metal began to rust in the salt water it would increase in bulk and drawing power for the bait fish that attracted the larger snapper and grouper we were really looking for. Later, Captain Warren began to have health problems and sold the Stacey Lee to me. I bought a new Loran C to help me locate the fishing spots. Warren gave me his better numbers and I was off to fish. This was fun for me since I taught Loran operation in the Coast Guard to Coast Guardsmen and Signal Corps soldiers heading for the South Pacific during World War II. I thought it was amazing how much better the modern Loran system was compared to what we had during the war. Of course, 30 to 40 years of development had something to do with it. With my new loran receiver I did catch more fish but I really wasnt very good at it. But I tried. I did not have a commercial license, so I could not charge for the trips. It probably was a darn good thing. I just took some of my customers and friends out for fun. Later as Warren began to get over his health issues, he would take charter customers again as Captain on my Stacey Lee. We fished the boat as a business for a couple more years that way. Warren enjoyed doing what he liked and making a little money off of it; and I was getting a little income off the boat and entertaining some of my customers. On one of our charter trips Warren noticed a water spout not far away and immediately made a hard turn away. I asked him if such a drastic change was necessary to get away from that little tornado. This was his answer: There are Old Pilots, and there are Bold Pilots, but there are No, Old Bold Pilots. George Walker, who bought the Gulf Service Station from Ham Curtis in Gulf Breeze, decided he wanted the Stacey Lee. Georges plan was to add fuel capacity to the boat and go after blue marlin. The boats original fuel tanks would not hold enough to get out to where the blues hung out and still get back in. I dont think this project was very successful and it wasnt long before the boat was up for sale again. George sold the boat to retired Navy blimp pilot and his partner who wanted to try commercial fishing. The didnt have the spot locations or the experience this venture required, and after a while they decided the boat wasnt right for them either and they decided to make a snapper reef out of her. I dont know how many pounds of red snapper you have to catch to equal the value of a very solid mahogany Chris Craft hull, even if she did have a pair of tired, old Chevy engines in her. I think they should have checked with Warren first. It wasnt going to be easy to sink that boat. After taking the radios, cushions and personal gear off the Stacey Lee, they emptied the fuel tanks and waited for a calm day to tow her out to the area where they planned to sink her. They opened her two thru hull valves to let the sea water in and raised her deck hatch. She began to sink a little and after a while she seemed to have found a comfortable water level and just stayed there. She didnt want to sink any further. Later, they fired up a portable water pump and pumped seawater over into the cockpit. That lowered the boat considerably, but she still didnt sink. She just rolled over and showed her bottom to these men trying to do away with her. Air was trapped in the forepeak of the boat and she was happy to stay right there. They had expected this to happen and had brought a length of steel pipe with them with which they proceeded to try to break through the upside down forepeak to let the air out. Those old wood Chris Craft hulls had double diagonal planked bottoms with glued canvas between the wood layers. Those hulls were tough as nails. By this time they had spent many, many hours trying to break through that hull. I think the boat was winning but they finally broke through the bottom and the trapped air rushed out and the upside down Stacey Lee slid down and out of sight. What a waste. This was how the sinking of the Stacey Lee was described to me by the owner at the time. I cant imagine either of the partners being very happy with this venture and considering the time and effort it took to scuttle this boat, I think the Stacey Lee put up a darned good fight. She was a good boat and entitled to a better end than this. I feel sad just recalling this story. Sorry, Captain Warren.

Also, Microsoft releases updates to their office products and software tools. The updates are intended to provide enhancements, fix errors in the initial product, or provide new protection and security features. Sometimes it seems that the computer is constantly busy receiving new updates from Microsoft. After distributing a virtual flood of changes, Microsoft consolidates all the changes into an all-encompassing package of software and announces the release of a service pack. The service packs are assigned a number, with Service Pack 1 being the first. Here are the most recent Service Packs for Windows operating systems. For Windows XP, the final service pack was SP3. For Windows Vista, there were two Service Packs. To date, for Windows 7, Service Pack 1 has been released. There will likely be at least one more before the new Windows software goes on the market. There are other service packs for products such as Microsoft Office. In order to get the best stability from your software, and to provide more protection from hackers and other security breaches, it is best to install the latest service packs. You can set up your computer to download the changes automatically, or you can choose to review the changes before installing them. Usually, there is no problem with the update process. But, if there is a problem, Windows has a feature that allows you to go back in time to undo the changes that were made.

Studio98HAIR DESIGNS 939-8800 Sat 10 to 5 FULL SERVICE HAIR SALON By Candace SegarMy husband, Ralph calls me the Squeaky Wheel. I had written my last column about the complaints I registered with a trucking company in order to save future customers the heartache and aggravation I endured when I received my package which had been tampered with. It worked! The President of the trucking company was furious when he received my letter with corresponding pictures and other information. He wasnt upset with me, no indeed, but with this branch of his organization in Florida. I suspect, but have no proof, that this tampering has happened before with other customers packages. The parent trucking company has called for an investigation which included both the retail companys representatives as well as the trucking companys representatives. There are staff members from both organizations that have come down to Florida for this investigation. How do I know all this? I have been assigned my own personal store associate whose name will not be revealed. She received my packet of information and informed me that it has circulated through many departments. This lady is my eyes and ears for everything that is going on behind the scenes. This made me feel so good. I want everyone to think about the lone individual, a lady, who took on big banking by encouraging folks move their money into credit unions and other places. The net result was no fees on using our money cards with big banking backing down. Now, more than ever before, Americans need to unite and these changes with banking and trucking, imagine what we can all do on a united front? Remember that the squeaky wheel does get heard! Just like the strutting Tom Turkey who survived the Thanksgiving ax, Tommy Grice shook up the Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun results with a win at the Home of the Original Bushwacker. Grice was atop the leaderboard at the Sandshaker Lounges weekly poker tourney with a win on November 14 over Dr. Glenn Burleson. Then over the river and through the final turn, comes Mary Kay Woods, and husband Mike, at the Sandshaker on November 21 to take the top two spots. What will happen next month? Will Tommy be the Grice who stole Christmas? Who knows? Eric The Postman Weatherford delivered himself to the winners circle on November 10 at Paddy OLearys, with Retired Marine Corps Colonel Phil Tracy in second place. Tracy commanded a win at Paddys, November 17, leaving Seth Morris as the runner-up. Middle School Teacher Maureen Humphrey tried to teach Todd Lentini a lesson on November 13 at Paddys, but the big guy went to the head of the class, and left her as the runnerup. Lady Luck posted herself at Paddys guiding winning cards to Angela Hartzog on November 20. Pensacola State College Professor Deb Friedman was a close second place. Affable Richard Butler smiled and bluffed his way into the top spot on November 11 at Castaways with John Woodham in second place. Butler tried his hand at winning the next night at The Dock, but local girl Terri McKamey swooped in for the win. Butler was the runner-up. Neither contender was strong enough to outlast two long time card sharps at The Dock on November 19. The mysterious unknown, took the win over Beach pioneer Tex Atkinson. From The Chip Stack Toyz 4444 Tots Poker Tourney: The Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun gang invite everyone to The Dock on Saturday, December 17 at 2 p.m. for a charity tourney. Entry fee is two new, unwrapped toys to be donated to local charities. More info, 850-324-2667. Celebration 4444 Education: The donation to the Pensacola Beach Elementary Schools Music Department surpassed the $1,000 mark. See page 8 for how the money was spent. No such luck: The probability of being dealt two aces is one in 221. Yet, it happens all the time. Lady Luck is a good gal. Holiday Games: Remember, everyone is welcome to join the Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun games. All you need is a basic knowledge of the game. You must be 21 years or older. If you are on the Beach for a few hours, a day or forever, take some time to play cards. Its good for your brain.
