Island Times PAGE 3 January 24, 2012 Jane: The Forever Beach GirlAfter holding a family meeting with only her youngest daughter, Liz, in attendance, the decision was made to move to Pensacola Beach, a place where the family had vacationed before. Pensacola Beach was only a quick day trip for both Candy and Shelley who were young adults and residing in the city; and at the same time far enough away from a city that she loved, but had personally broken her heart. In August of 1978, Jane, Shelley and Liz arrived in Pensacola as they impatiently waited for the sale of 1203 Ariola to Luna, Jane had arrived. No one will ever know if it was the salt air or the sugar white sand bed sheets, but this magical elixir unleashed a Jane that New Orleans had worked for a weekly publication in she was ready to follow her lifelong original supporters. At the time she had more naysayers than readers, but Jane soldiered on. Soon people loved "Barefoot on the Beach" and having a Beach newspaper. tion. Jane, however, always respected and embraced her a member of the Pensacola Press Club and held a Press Pass until the day she passed. It was that same year, that Jane packed her family into her Volare station wagon and headed to America would be the last year any Beach resident would have would concoct the idea which eventually led to the Krewe of later, Jane chronicled Beat of an Island 1997. leave her footprints in the sand, Jane was a founding member of the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce. She was not only a visionary for this organization, but a worker bee. When it was time to open the original Visitors Information Center, she was the first to grab a broom and sweep out the grease and dirt filled bays of the 76 gas station. Jane was never politically confrontational, but she believed in the power of politicians and worked tirelessly to get an Island resident as a member of the Santa Rosa Island Authority. In the fall of 1983, that project became a reality as resident to the SRIA. Jane's generosity and love for her Island were endless, as was her love for her Volare station wagcreated an annual rusted object celebration in the name of the Rustmobile: Ashes to Ashes, Rust to to their New York owners, she renamed that area a magical Christmas tale where Santa windsurfed newspaper would be named by Anheuser Busch tion in excess of 100,000 copies. She hosted an her house which for the day she renamed Camp Wooweewatchie. She was a supporter of the Beach ally and professionally, as she made sure each was a benefactor of proceeds from celebrations on the Island.Jane: Wife and MotherAs fate would have it, Jane would be blessed with a man who adored and loved her as much as she did him. On July 5,1995, Jane and Frank Cooper eloped to Cedar Key and were married. Over the next 16 years, they would blend their adult families into one, most of whom would travel the Island in their golf cart and the seas on strangers. Everyone was family. Jane is survived by Frank; his daughter, Rebecca; his son, tha; Steve's daughter, Jenny; and her dox and Avery. She is also survived by her four daughters and sons-in-law, Janie Candy and Ralph Segar; Shelley and Richard Johnson; Liz four grandchildren of whom three are married; Lisa and Charles and Cynthia Wylie; Jeremy and Rachael three great grandchildren, Catherine and Kristen Wylie; and Barrett Banks Johnson. And though Jane has lots of sisters on the Beach, she is survived by her Jane: To The Very End Jane met death with grace and dignity, just exactly how she lived her life, thanks in part to her healthcare who all fell right into her web of love and followed her every directive. Jane was in charge; and she was lucid and smiling until her very last breath. Jane Waters Cooper will forever be barefoot on Pensacola Beach as her legacy lives on in residents and tourists alike who come to this Island, if just for a brief moment, to say goodbye to worries, to cares and to frets. A good time was truly her only law. Frank and Jane Cooper Head Wreck Jane Waters,1985 Jane Waters CooperJane signing her book To The Beat of an Island Drum

It contained songs and lyrics written by an old friend and strumming buddy who had been following Ricks column in the pages of the Beach newspaper.

The grateful congregation hosted a huge party in her honor on Sunday, January 15. WILD ABOUT YOUThe Bananimals have added new members to their flock. Congrats to the following: Kate Brown, Bruce and Carmen Patterson, Rayme Edler, MC Warrick and Diane Tyson, who recently joined the krewe. The Bananimals are celebrating their twentieth Mardi Gras season. Anyone who knows Beach Mardi Gras history will remember that Diane Tyson was among those hard working souls who kept Mardi Gras going during the early years. She was a Krewe of Wrecks Board member from 1983-1990.GOOD FORE SCOTTScott Harvey of Greensboro, Carolinas Mens Player of the Year award following a stellar 2011 tournament campaign that validated his status as one of the best amateur players in the region.

Dont know if his math was correct, but his wife Sharon laughed at his youthful exuberance as he got his surf board and beach gear ready for a well deserved trip to Puerto Rico. Hang ten and hang out, Kenny. The Trivia Master went artsy in a big way in the last edition when he asked who designed the whimsical dolphin artwork on the water tanks. He thought he could stump all the world with that question, but along came one of Pensacolas smartest gals, Susi Lyon with this answer, Susan Mead. She and her husband Mike worked at Blue Dolphin Screen Printing. She was responsible for some of the best t-shirt designs. Susi will look smart in her new Island Times shirt. Another smart gal, but not as quick to answer, is Susan Kennedy, who works at JME Vacations on Pensacola Beach. Susan Kennedy fondly recalled working with the talented Susan Mead at one of Pensacolas ad agencies, Dodson, Craddock & Born in the 1980s. Susan Meads work is well known, and well-remembered. She even designed a caricature for the front page of The Islander Newspaper to celebrate a milestone anniversary. Her neighbor Melanie Waite recalled the talented Gulf Breeze artist had sketched the native dolphins leaping through a multi-hued design for the giant water tanks. Susan had a great sunny studio built into their little two bedroom cottage with an eastern exposure. Thats where she did some of her best work, wrote Waite. The Trivia Master thinks all ladies who are named Susan are in cahoots. So the Smart Susan Society should go back into hiding and take their talented members with them. Well, along came a tankful of wrong answers and guesses from the trivia playing public including Gwen Foster. She thought it might be the famous marine artist Wyland or the locally famous Nina Fritz. Both great artists. Both wrong answers. No one has ever mistaken Jim Knell for an art connoisseur. The retired Marine Corps aviator sent Mitzi Presley-Holt as his answer. A talented artist, but Knell crashed and burned on that one. Make a special delivery with the answer to this next trivia question. Before email shook up the way we communicate with each other, you have mail meant something totally different.

Invisible to most and nourished by hair spray, they come out to spread the love and merriment of Mardi Gras to islanders on one day each year. The first Naugas were discovered in the fall of 1994 nesting happily near Danahs Hair Salon, said owner Danah Gibson. We dont know how long they had lived there. Maybe they came over with DeLuna.

It was shortly after Hurricane Ivan had ravaged our beautiful Island and homes, sending us all in separate directions. We were scattered, adrift and struggling to regain our footing. As always, Jane knew how to pull us all back together with a common thread. She was an amazing, irreplaceable and unforgettable woman with the strength, power and the desire to reconnect a community that she loved. I will carry her in my heart always and I will never forget her faith in me. I will also be forever grateful that Janes efforts to share her love for New Orleans brought this little girl from Georgia the magic of Mardi Gras. That being said, it is time to get on with the business of celebrating Mardi Gras and sharing our Island spirit with our readers. The Mystic Krewe of Nereids kick off the Mardi Gras Season each year with the King Kake Party. Paradise Bar and Grill might be only eight blocks away from my beach house, but it still required three pair of shoes to get me through the day. We begin with our Queens Brunch so we sort of dressup a bit. Then we change into our party costume which is a variation of the Island Cowgirl theme. After many long hours tickets, photo sessions and passing around the delicious king cake we announce our new royalty. Finally we get to relax a bit. Its really two events in one day, so you can see where that third pair of shoes comes in handy. This is the year of our Dancin Queen Monette Hodges and King Mike Antone. Mike for a number of years, so he has certainly earned his crown. Owner of Dancingly Yours, Monette is the only person ever capable of teaching yours truly a few dance steps. Please note -all mistakes, missteps and falls are completely my own fault and no She is really an immensely talented dance teacher, so I will probably need more shoes. And fairy dust. You can never have enough of the glittery, shiny magic sprinkles. While lots of people complain about it, they sure dont mind asking for it. Im surprised that no one has had the sense to create sheets already covered with fairy dust. Why not? Its like sleeping in the middle of all the twinkling stars. Then you get up and carry the stars with you all day. I can promise you, people are gonna smile. You will, too, every time you look in the mirror. More than half the krewe invaded Marilyn LeNormands own fantasy island in Mobile for our annual bead tripping event. All I can say is there may have been a visit from the King of Pop which could soon go viral on You-Tube. away the Christmas stuff, I realized I might be the only person with Christmas tree skirts in her costume closet. Yes, I do have a separate closet for certain costumes but you all know I consider all my clothes to be costumes. I really cant claim the tree skirt idea for my own. I saw it on an episode of Designing Women. There was a lovely woman who played the part of a crazy old lady and I loved her. Her name was Bernice and she was once my role model (before I met Jane, of course). She comes into a scene wearing a Christmas tree skirt she received as a gift from one of the Designing Women. They asked why she was wearing something meant to be under the tree. Her reply was I wondered why it was so hard to get into! I still laugh and laughings even better than smiling. For those of you serious about keeping the spirit of the Island as Jane Waters Cooper made it, please consider joining her beloved Krewe of Wrecks. Thats a yearly contribution that will allow the spirit of Mardi Gras, and Jane, to continue for many years. Long enough so that her great grandson, Barrett Banks Johnson will someday reign as Captain. Welcome to the world, baby boy! This is the recipe I served the last meeting. Hope you enjoy it as much as they did. Its time to cook..Easy Chili for a Crowd4 Lbs. ground beef use cheaper cuts for this) 4 12oz. cans tomato sauce 1 12oz. can diced tomatoes 2 12oz. cans chili beans WaterCut steak into cubes while half-frozen. Brown together with ground beef until ground beef is done. Drain, return to large cooking pot and add the rest of ingredients. Bring to a boil then simmer until steak is tender (usually an hour). You can add water if you like a thinner sauce (I do). The more you reheat, the better it gets; if theres any left. I served it with Fritos, sour cream and shredded sharp cheddar cheese and added extra chili powder (about 2 tablespoons). Enjoy, share and join the Krewe of Wrecks! Happy Mardi Gras see ya in the kitchen. The Krewe of Nereids crowned Monette Hodges and Mike Antone as the 2012 Queen and King at their annual King Kake Party, January 7 at

Things change. People are born and people die. Both are movements of God. Indeed, the breath of the Lord blows upon ers fade. If we have lived long enough to reach adulthood we know this is true.

The Creator takes mud and fashions life, cleans and binds the wounded, and remolds grief into hope. The prophet regardless of geography, religious There is a constancy of Hope that brought me into this world and will guide me out. My mom Jane Waters Cooper recently passed away. I wanted to share with you one of the last books she was reading. It was The Power by Rhonda Byrne. What caught my attention was where her book mark was placed. Mom understood quite well the secret and the power of the mind. Basically, she was able to dream and create reality from her dreams. Certainly her beloved Islander Newspaper and Mardi Gras on Pensacola Beach were two of her dreams. But more importantly, she touched and nurtured many lives in her travels and in her day to day life. And she did this with love love on many levels. I felt this force and power of love on Monday at the Forever Barefoot on the Beach A Celebration of Janes life. There were several hundred people who wanted to be there with their love for Jane. The beautiful thing about that love was that it trickled down to her family. I felt so good that I didnt shed tears, but felt uplifted and very much supported, and, of course, loved. So Mom you never really needed to read those two books, The Secret and The Power. You already knew what it was all about.

By the same token, BP would like to see the public restore their trust in them so the company can move on from this horrible ordeal. This is why the Deepwater Horizon Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) trustees held a public input meeting January 12. The meeting, held on the UWF campus, was meant to share with the public the proposed ideas for NRDAs Phase I Early Restoration Plan and Environmental Assessment. There was one proposal for Pensacola boat ramps, and one for restored dunes on Pensacola Beach. Lee Edminson, a NRDA science expert who made himself available to the public at the meeting, said that it just so happened that both projects are in this area. These proposed projects are based on public reaction, he said, they are feasible to be done in a reasonable time frame. There are eight projects for the affected states, two of which are these Florida projects. The $585,898 proposed restoration would establish twenty acres of coastal dune habitat, area that has been inhibited by oiling and extensive use of all-terrain vehicles and heavy equipment. The dunes are the first natural line of defense from hurricanes, rising sea levels, andyou guessed it, oil spills. Restoring the dunes 40 feet seaward of the existing dunes is said to prevent loss of wildlife habitat and private property. The other proposed project, a $4,406,309 enhancement and construction to four Pensacola area boat ramps, would benefit human use to bring more people, and their business, to the boating realm of Escambia County. It was stressed that all of the projects being discussed by NRDA and NOAA, are still in the planning phase. Anyone with comments or opinions is urged to share them with NOAA at www. gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov. First Phase Of Restoration Projects Draws Public Comment Engineers To Present Latest Version of Pensacola Beach Master PlanThe process to redevelop the core area of Pensacola Beach has been through some ups and downs since its beginning in 2009. Ft. Lauderdale-based EDSA was hired to create a conceptual Master Plan. A thirteen member Steering Committee was appointed to review the concepts. They submitted a recommendation to the Santa Rosa Island Authority board who approved the Plan in 2010. Escambia County hired Baskerville Donovan Engineers to complete an engineering feasibility study on the proposed upgrades to the core area. Jim Waite of Baskerville Donovan presented those findings August 24, 2011. In a follow up meeting Steering Committee member Marilyn Hess commented that the engineers plan did not adequately reflect that of the Steering Committees concepts and Baskerville Donovan had not consulted with the EDSA planners. The SRIA and Escambia County invested additional funds to have Baskerville Donovan coordinate with EDSA. The result of their work will be presented at the SRIA boardroom, Tuesday, January 24 at 6 p.m. The presentation is open to the public and will be followed by a question and answer period. As I understand it there will be two options, said Jim Cox, Pensacola Beach Advocates president. One creates a pedestrian overpass and the other an underpass. That is fine, but it is only one component of the Master Plan. The Santa Rosa Island Authority Board will vote on one of the options at a Special Meeting January 25 at 5 p.m. The concept will then be sent to the Board of County Commissioners.

I, on the other hand, have a story about Chicken Soup for the Future Sonin-Law. It was an uncharacteristically cold February night and my mother, Jane Waters Cooper, had made her famous chicken soup. The broth's aroma wafted throughout her beach house and date. And not just with anyone, but with someone I actually liked. "Mom," I said in my most exasperated tone of voice. "Something wrong?" she asked. "The house, it smells." "Oh, I'm just making a little pot of soup," as she stirred the broth and added more pepper. "Some folks are dropping by and it's bitter cold out there. Can you Well, it may have been just courtship with Almanzo Wilder from her Little House on the Prairie, but this was 1989 and I wasn't about to become Liz Waters from Little House on the Sand Dune. However, there was never any point in arguing with my mom, so I had to formulate another plan. But only after I retrieved more Of course, it dawned on me that I could answer the door and not allow the most handsome man I had ever seen in my entire life into Little House on the Sand Dune. Sheer genius and thus it was decided. I would take the risk that he would forever be branded as rude by my mom for not coming upstairs to introduce himself, but I would blame that on him being a Yankee and raised in Philadelphia. I just really wanted a second date. Then there was a knock on the door. My heart leaped. It was Beverly Hofer McCay and she was carrying a couple of bottles of wine with her. Then there was a second knock at the door. It was Kevin Evans. He just happened to come by to chat. Then Laura Spraggins arrived along with a living room to the brim with folks that I am sure were there to scrutinize this young Second Lieutenant whom my sister, Shelley, so boldly stated to our mom that morning: "Mom, I met your future son-in-law. You should have seen the way that boy looked in Liz's eyes. Get out your party pumps. There's gonna be a weddin'." At exactly 1900 hours, that's 7 p.m. for you non-military people, I heard the knock. I gathered my purse and coat as I headed for the door and yelling up the stairs, "Love you Mom. I'll be home by 10 or so. We are only going to Peg Legs." My plan was working as I cautiously I opened the door while the smell of salt air and chimney smoke tickled my nostrils Then he said the most magical words ever. "What is that awesome smell?" "It's my mom's chicken soup. Come on up. I want to introduce you to her and some of my family members." A couple of bowls of soup later and a quick of explanation "You kids have fun and Harry it was such a pleasure to meet you. Hope to see you soon." That soon became the very next day and the day after that and all the days to come. Thanks, Mom!Jane's Famous Chicken Soup(Not that anyone could ever replicate it, but it's fun to try.)1 well seasoned soup pan. Preferably one that has survived a few moves and even a hurricane or two.1 package of skinless, boneless chicken breasts 2 cubes of chicken bouillon 1 large white onion, cut into 4 quarters 4 carrots, possibly peeled but Celery, an entire bag minus three stalks, cut into large chunks quarter cup Salt and PepperIn the soup pan, put in the chicken, onion, bouillon, and whole peppercorns. Cover with tap water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for hours. Remove chicken and sort of pull apart will have to be fast as this tends helps ward off blistering. Return chicken back to the stock, add in celery and carrots, salt and pepper to taste. Bring up to a boil one more time. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for hours. Continue to putter around your house doing something, like publishing a newspaper, starting a Mardi Gras, raising a family, whatever makes you happy. Serve with love. Until next time...

A: The Internet Cloud is one of the latest trends, or buzzwords, in technology. The Cloud is actually a collection of computers and specialized software that can be accessed through the Internet. Their primary purpose is to provide services to individuals and businesses through the Internet, instead of using your own software and hardware. At the personal level, an individual could use the Cloud to back up their documents, pictures, and music. Several companies provide those services for a fee. In the Apple world, the iCloud is used to synchronize iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. Currently, the Cloud is ing, and online learning. On a larger scale, companies can potentially save money by transferring their computer operations to the Cloud. Rather than investing in computers and the staff needed to operate and maintain them, the company could run its computer operations from the Internet. Being able to access company files from many locations could business operations and reduce the cost of private computer networks. There are several things to be considered when thinking about using the Cloud. For example, when your Internet access goes down, you cant get much done. Also, consider the security issues. There arent many Internet-based activities that cant be hacked. And, of course, you might need some kind of business insurance to cover yourself in case your Cloud provider goes out of business.

Mardi Gras Street Dance Sat, Feb 18 1-5 pm When Jane and I were first married, we spent many fun hours on our boat, the Cabernet. The boat was an old (1968) 44 foot Hattaras motor yacht. By todays standards the boat had near classic lines. On one of our first family day trips my new grandson, Jeremy Johnson, asked me, How fast will it go, Daddy Frank? I answered that this was about it. As my son, Steve once said, Dad, that boat is dog slow. It may have been slow, but it was sure, solid comfort. Jane and I made many overnight trips. We would go over behind the land cut in Pensacola Bay or to Pirates Cove at Perdido Bay. Her favorite boat trips always included time at Biloxi. Jane may have loved the boat, but what she really liked was talking to little symbols on her favorite slot machines at Beau Rivage. Our good friend, Jim Randol, had moved down to Ft. Myers, Florida and on one of our road trips to see him he asked why we didnt bring the boat down rather than drive. Hey, that sounded like a great idea. The trip would mostly be in protected water and we would see a lot of new sights along the Inland Waterway. So we stocked up the boat, checked our charts and off we went. I was familiar with most of the trip along the intracoastal over through Ft. Walton, Destin and Panama City but it was new to Jane and that made it fun for me. When we got to Apalachicola we decided to stay in a little motel on the river we had stayed in on a previous car trip. Big mistake! The last time we stayed there it was clean and nice with a right good restaurant looking out on the river. The restaurant still looks out on the river but this time the motel was dirty and the food was strictly fair. It turned out the place had changed hands and the new owners just made a cheap beer joint out of it. The next morning we pulled out of Appalach and planned to cut across the upper end of the Gulf bound for Tarpon Springs. The weather was lousy so we ducked into Carrabelle to ride the mess out. The weather did not do anything but blow like the devil for two days and the dock there at Carrabelle was eat up with swarms of flying and biting insects. I dont know what they were but they were not no-seeums. You could see these-everywhere. They were so thick we couldnt even enjoy being out on deck with our wine watching boats go by. If we had gone on outside to Tarpon Springs we would have bounced around a good bit but at least we would be away from the bugs. On the second day stuck in Carabelle I asked Jane if she really wanted to continue the trip south. She answered no, and quickly said she would like to go to Biloxi. That suited me fine. We pulled out of Carabelle and retraced our steps back to the west. The weather got much better. We were feeling great and Jane was headed to see her little buddies on the slot machines over at the Beau. After a couple of days we tied up at a little restaurant on the north side of Dauphin Island which we had visited before. It had changed and had an oil drilling company based there with all kinds of support boats. They had a big deck barge tied alongside the dock and that night they were having some kind of party. There was a band, dancing and lots of drinking. I dont know where the girls came from. They didnt look like part of the drilling crew but they sure knew how to party. It was way up in the wee hours before Jane and I got any sleep but we sure heard some good Cajun music. There was a reason for us aborting that trip to Ft. Myers. As we left Dauphin Island the next morning we ran into a bodacious line squall. It blew like the devil and the water really churned up. The old boat handled it well but she really tossed a lot of water on the foredeck. One thing about those sharp squalls. They dont usually last very long. When we broke through this one Jane noticed a small boat about a half mile off to the north toward the mainland. There was a man standing on the deck waving a life jacket at us. I didnt know quite what to think of it. We motored over to them. I am glad we did, because two of the people were so sick they were laying in the bottom of the boat and the owners wife had fallen and injured herself. Quite a mess. We got a line to them and began towing the boat slowly to the entry to a marina at Ocean Springs. Eventually, we motored into Back Bay at Biloxi and tied up next to Boomtown Casino. Jane spent the next half day talking to her little buddies in the slot machines. We were thinking there must have been a reason we didnt make it past Carrabelle on the first part of the trip and were in Mississippi Sound instead at just the right time to be able to tow in that very sick group and injured lady in the small boat. At least we liked to think there was a reason. We both believed in that sort of thing.Beach Environmental Group Gathers MomentumThey are the stewards of the sand, keepers of the clean and the friends of the feathered. The Pensacola Beach Advocates Beachkeepers environmental committee is hard at work planning events and initiatives for the upcoming months. The group will meet Tuesday, February 7 at 5 p.m. at the Santa Rosa Island Authority boardroom to discuss a Recycling Day on Pensacola Beach. The event could include document shredding, prescription recycling, and a giant yard sale. After the details are worked out, the recommendation will go before the Pensacola Beach Advocates Board for approval. Its easy to become a Beachkeeper. The group is open to all members of the Pensacola Beach Advocates. A membership form is located on page 9 of this edition, and is available online at www. pbadvocates.org. We are looking for more Beachkeepers, said chairman JJ Waters. This committee is set to make a positive impact on the island and its inhabitants. For more information, www. pbadvocates.org. The Natural Resource Extension Agents of the University of Florida present Panhandle Outdoors LIVE, a series of guided field excursions highlighting unique ecological features throughout Northwest Florida.

Entertainment, Sound Stage & Lighting ~ now offers ~ VOICE OVER SERVICES Seeing Stars... your horoscope for next week Madame Astra ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The changes you've waited to see in your work situation might not be happening quite as quickly as you'd hoped. Although the pace is slow, it's ongoing. Expect to hear news soon. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You should be feeling very proud of the fine effort you've made to get that important project done. Now take some time out to celebrate with family and friends. You've earned it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You're close to reaching your objectives. That's the good news. But be careful: Your aspects show lots of potential distractions looming. Stay focused and keep your eyes fixed on your goals. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be careful not to let that suspicious Cancerian mind create a problem where none exists. What you might believe is an act of betrayal could be nothing more than a misunderstanding. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Lion's heart overflows with self-confidence. All you need to do is tap into it, and you'll be able to handle any change that must be made regarding that recent surprise development. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The need to watch what you say becomes increasingly crucial this week. Be as temperate as you can with your comments and avoid arguments for the sake of controversy. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A longtime family problem presents new demands. But this time, you won't have to go it alone: Someone else is asking to help share your responsibilities. Let it happen. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A period of feeling vulnerable is about to give way to a stronger, more self-confident aspect. Use this new strength to reaffirm promises you've made to others and yourself. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A creative dilemma stalls your progress. Instead of letting it raise your ire, use the time to re-examine your aims and, perhaps, come up with a new target. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your nimble will finds a way for you to work out those newly emerged problems plaguing your new project. Stay with it. The results will be well worth your efforts. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might feel overwhelmed at having to decide which new opportunity you should follow. Best advice: Check them all out and see which offers what you really want. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Continue to tread water before you even consider plunging into something that never seemed quite right. Some facts will soon emerge that can help you make a decision. BORN THIS WEEK: You're a natural-born peacemaker. You value truth and have little patience with those who lie to you for their own purposes. Reports of Nauga sightings are reaching a frenzy on the Beach. Darwin would freak out with the mutations that occur from season to season. For the first time, a Naug-onthologist sighted a newling Nauga with feathers. Multi-colored plumes. Naugas range in fur colors and have been sighted wearing leopard spots, but never feathers. And, remember, the Krewe of Naugas dress code is pajamas, so its an opportunity to be comfortable and glamorous at the same time. The doors open at the Dock at 10 a.m. January 28. The champagne flows all morning. The Beach Babes should report to the Shaker at 1 p.m. on January 28. Its a chance to earn an armful of prizes and a first class ticket to ride in the Beachs Mardi Gras parade on February 19. If you got it, shake it, baby! The Maven tips her tiara to the staff at Flounders for their good care of the reluctant revelers who celebrated the Life of Jane Waters Cooper. The fine gents of the Krewe of Brewe who paid their most high respects to their first queen by dressing in black tie formal caught the Mavens attention. They own their own finery and use it often. The Brewes Ball, which is Black Tie Formal, is set for Saturday, February 4, and if you dress the part and show up at the Elks with thirty-five dollars the Maven will see you there. You can save some cash by getting a ticket in advance. Call lovely Pam Lane at 850-723-4053. Those of you who are fans of Steve Lillos culinary creations should note he is catering the event. Dog lovers, and those who are crazy enough to like kids, will be thrilled with the Kids and Kritters Parade. The sign up starts at the uncivilized 9 a.m. and the walking procession begins at 10 a.m. on February 11 at Casino Beach across from Sidelines. I have to admit the little wagons decorated as floats were darling, if you like that kind of thing. I much prefer an evening gala like the one the St. Pats are hosting on February 3. Red carpet glam is the dress code. Bring on the bling. Double the bubbly. The Wrecks and the Bananimals have chosen the same night to swirl and swing on the dance floor, so why not attend both balls on February 11? Throw me something, mister; and its okay if its a strand of plastic beads made in China. Long gone are the carefully strung, colorful glass beads which the New Orleans Mardi Gras monarch, Rex, threw to the crowds. Legend has it that tradition came over from the Europeans handing out necklaces and gifts at carnival-esque celebrations. It has been roughly three decades since Bobby Barrington and Liz Waters took the post Wrecks breakfast crowd into Via de Luna to shake a leg at the Street Dance. It happens every year. Drivers beware. The crowd descends the stairs from Dales Big Deck on February 18 with the newly crowned Krewe of Wrecks Captain and First Mate in the lead. Bon temps. Mon Dieu! Amy DePew! Shes the Queen of Junkanoo.

This is rare. Very rare, said Poker Promoter Rick Uzdevenes. Friedman is quickly becoming a player to beat. Friedman is no stranger to the royal nature of Beach life. She has been the Queen of the Krewe of Wrecks, Krewe of Nereids, Krewe of Nauga and Wooly Booger Queen Shugah. No wonder the colorful royalty of the suits of cards followed her to the poker table. In other action at Paddy OLearys Pete Falgout roared into the winners circle past a long list of powerful poker players on January 5. The runner-up was Tootie Humphrey, one of the dealing diva duo. Sara Mandel, the other dealing diva, was outpaced by Larry Paz on January 8 at Paddys. Beach icon and former Ariola Drive resident Tex Atkinson showed no mercy to 2011 poker playing champ Ted Gorder. Tex ended up with all the chips. Retired Marine Corps Colonel Phil Tracy marched into the top spot over Todd Lentini on January 15. Action moves to the Sandshaker Lounge on Monday nights. James Taylor earned the win over Dr. Glenn Burleson. Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun is open to anyone interested in poker. A basic understanding of the game is necessary, but extensive experience is not. Games begin at 7 p.m. at the Sandshaker Lounge on Mondays, Paddy OLearys in Pensacola Beachs historic district on Thursdays, and Castaways on Fridays. Weekend warriors can grab a chip and a chair at The Dock on Saturday at 2 p.m. and Paddys, Sundays at 4 p.m. For more information, call Richard Uzdevenes on the poker hotline at 850-324-2667.Beach Mardi Gras Queen Draws Royal Hold Em Hand Womans Clubbers Prepare To Play Games All DayAre you ready to party?

Well, we hooked on Dorados. The captain was singing and clapping and telling everyone on the radio how well we had done.
