If there is a man named Jane lurking out there in the world, I wish he would let us know, so we can run his picture in The Islander And this leads me to newspaper editing a job which entails great landslides of mail. Lately, the avalanche has included a number of resumes from people who would like to work for this little island publication. And now, once again, I am running into that kind of careless chauvinistic reference a red bandana in my Taurean face. Most of these letters begin, Jane Waters, Editor, The Islander Dear MR. Waters,. Now, how many guys named JANE do you know? Last week, the real topper arrived, addressed to Jane Warealize you are a busy man, but could you take time to look at No, but I should take time to write and tell you there are, here and there, scattered about in cities and hamlets and islands and mountain tops some women who edit newspapers, do television news and sportscasting, are disc jockeys, bartenders, doctors, lawyers, merchants and chiefs. One even grew up to be an astronaut! A year ago, when I went license, I gave the clerk a check. She looked it over and asked, Do you and Mr. Waters own The Islander ? There is no Mr. Waters. I own The Islander , I answered. She, still turning the check around in her hands, said, Oh, you and Mr. Waters started it and now you are running it. She said this in a hushed voice, implying that I had inherited the newspaper. Sometimes, libbers lose, I muttered as I walked to the desk to pick up my tag. I can remember working in newspaper offices where women were the Society editors and secretaries. Period! I was a Society editor of a small town daily myself, but now and then sneak it right past the grizzled editor, and it would appear, but I never got a byline unless I did a saccharin description of a tea party. Women who have secured responsible positions in the media have been true icebreakers. A pioneer libber in the newspaper business was a professor of mine. Her name was Mary Paxton Keely, and she was the first woman graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Somehow, she stormed the all-male bastion of Missouris journalism school and she went to work as a reporter for the Kansas City Star not the secretary, janitor or Society editor, but a real, genuine reporter! And, she paid a horrendous price. During her retirement years when she decided to teach journalism, she was still doing what she had always had to do to make her way in newspapering. Her hair was cut short like a mans hair used to be. She wore severely tailored suits and low heeled shoes. She peered at her students through enormous horn-rimmed glasses. She was a familiar, but somewhat ludicrous character as she pedaled her bicycle around the streets in Columbia, often wearing a bright orange raincoat and hat. All this from a woman who had enrolled at the University wearing the soft feminine fashions of her day. If she was to succeed in a mans world, she soon found it would be easier if she imitated the male journalist. All women in the media owe a lot the Mary Paxton Keelys who preceded us. By the time I arrived at the journalism school, there were almost as many girls as boys aiming at careers in journalism. And yet, the ancient myth still surfaces now and then. And, that is the reason that letters to the Editor always seem to begin, Dear Mister, even if the editors name is JANE Guess who is expecting? FIND OUT IN THE NEXT EDITION OF ISLAND TIMES...

Emails jammed the Trivia Masters inbox, most of which were correct when they identified the wild shipboard party hosted so many years ago the Whammy Jammer cruise. Amy fastest, followed closely by Jayne Drees. Jayne admitted that she would have been left at the dock, since she was only 12-years-old in 1982. She still remembered the funny sounding name. The Trivia Master heard Luke who wrote, Oh wow, I Whammy Jammers. I am actually one of the original members! cruises were on The Silver Lady and the ten original members just invited ten of our best friends to party with us? I still have the original plastic cups from those early cruises, along with all the happy memories. Good answer, Jammer Jean. The esteemed Sandspur publisher Chuck Steele was out of steam arriving later than usual with his correct answer. The Knights of the Trivia Roundtable poured another mug of meade to celebrate an untarnished streak of correct answers. Sir Morrie, Lady Kim and Sir Offshore each remembered the Whammy Jammers, along with Big Bob Dority who has never be in-training or in a knight-in-adaze. Not sure. Kathie Jernigan sent two answers. Woefully, wrong. Her was scrubbed by her second answer, the Casino Cruise. She wrote, I remembered there was a time when you could board at the beach and have dinner and gamble, didn't last long. Better luck, next time, rookie. All this salty talk has the Trivia Master thinking about the beautiful, bronzed capable sailors who take the helm at the Pensacola Beach Yacht Clubs Race for the Roses.

PAGE 5 Island Times June 26, 2012 The doctor says Beach tourism is healthy. At the June 13 Santa Rosa Island Authority full board meeting, Dr. Rod Lewis of the Haas Center gave a preliminary report on the impact that Pensacola Beach tourism has on Escambia County. The total impact of Pensacola Beach on the regional economy is $261 million and it generates 2,600 jobs, reported Lewis. The recovery here was amazingly healthy from the oil spill as evidenced by the tourism bed tax collections and toll facility numbers. Lewis concluded that currently most visitors come to Pensacola Beach from the nearby drive markets. He stated that a focus to bring visitors from ington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, Atlanta and Charlotte would add to the tourism base. Those travelers spend more while on vacation and look for amenities such as upscale retail and beach based activities, according to his research. August 8 and will include onsite interview results gathered from the 2012 Blue Angels Airshow weekend. Beach Chamber President Maureen LaMar presented the Visitors Information Center report which again showed tourism to be rebounding on the Beach. increase in visitors during May 2012 as compared to May 2011, guests in our Center during May. Hoteliers are predicting a strong summer. were Louisiana, Florida, Texas, Georgia and Alabama with international visitors from Canada, Germany and England. The Santa Rosa Island Authority contracts with the Beach Chamber to manage the Visitors Center on their behalf. The Board approved a request by PSBLive to produce a live online video stream of the popular Tuesday night Bands on the Beach concert series, pending legal approval. The concerts, which draw 4,000 guests weekly, are hosted at the Gulfside Pavilion. This would be a professional production showcasing this event to a global audience, said Bill Brownell, owner. This is at no cost to the SRIA. Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio provided the Board with an update about the completion of the new Shaggys Bar and Grill, there are only two vacant commercial properties. One is the former Clarion property on Via de Luna which is zoned for a 50 unit commercial hotel. That property is currently for sale. The second is a property between Margaritaville and Holiday Inn Express which is to be developed as their waterpark in the future. There are a total of The Land Use Plan allows for 4,128 residential units, all of which are spoken for. There are island. Three new homes have been completed this year with another nine already permitted. Landscaping along Via de resident Margaret DeArmon who asked the board to consider the maintenance of plantings prior to spending leaseholders money. She chastised the board for not have a comprehensive plan for landscape and maintenance. She is willing to volunteer her time to help. I am recently retired, she said. If we need an Adopt-An-Island program, even if it means pulling sandspurs, I will do it. The future of the Via de Luna median landscaping plan is in Escambia Countys hands according to Baskerville-Donovan Engineer Mike Langston. The road belongs to Escambia County so we must wait for them to move forward, said Langston. The landscaping must accommodate the speed that the cars travel on Via de Luna. I hope this project can be completed this year. Langston also reported that designs for a parking lot at Avenida 14 and Via de Luna will be presented at the next meeting. Additionally, the report will include other areas where improvements can be made. Improvements to Pensacola Beach was the subject of a recent survey conducted by the Pensacola Beach Advocates. The interim results were compiled and presented to the Board by PBA sults of the survey, which asks respondents to rank the importance of Pensacola Beach Master Plan items, will be available this week. There are 13 items that respondents supported that are not being considered for funding, not even on the list of unfunded projects, said Cox. In my opinion, it is important that the SRIA budand the Master Plan outlines. After lengthy discussion, Board members shared differing reactions to the information. Board Chairman Dave Pavlock dont know what will happen with taxes. Our job is to see what we can do to make life better on the Beach for the businesses, residents and tourists. The board continued to discuss the survey results during their budget workshop which followed the meeting. The Santa Rosa Island Authority committees will meet on the SRIA boardroom. A special board meeting and budget workshop will follow. The meeting is open to the public. Doctor Declares Beach Tourism Healthy

Its true. I met a family named Woolley at the Fourth Annual Wooly Booger Social Clubs Keep the Hurricanes Away This Season Bawl. No kidding. Daddy Woolley explained that he had been stationed here at NAS in the 1960s. His family has been coming back every year for vacation. They were thrilled to be smack dab in the middle of a Wooly Booger Bawl. They travelled all the way from Oklahoma and brought some real mid-country charm and gris-gris to help ward off hurricanes and tornados. Mike Woolley (I know its a slightly different spelling, but it still counts) and his family enjoyed their Bawl so much, they plan to return in late November to celebrate the Kiss the Hurricane Season GoodBye Bawl and perhaps have a family reunion. They promised to keep an eye out for a family named Booger. Queen Shugah Christine Hewerdine and her Royal Court of Past Shugah Queens managed to get the entire crowd at Paradise Bar & Grill onboard with blowing away all storms. Just face south, blow and believe. There was a tiny depression offshore, but it got really scared and quickly shot off to the west. There was a lot of hoo-doo dancing, gris gris southward. Since it was such a hot and crowded day, Wooly Booger Canine Deputy Dawg Rommel was given permission to maintain his post under a shade tree at home, so Mom Becky Shearman brought a beautiful picture to share. Paradise Manager Renee Mack sure knows how to pick em! Kenney Neal was an awesome band providing great entertainment. I believe everyone in that family sings and plays music. A very talented family. Can you believe they sang, Put on your red dress baby were going out tonight and I was wearing one? I know. Ive decided to do something different for my birthday this year. Well, actually I just returned from the annual June birthday trip to Biloxi. But I mean on my actual birthday day. I just realized that my granddaughter Sissy and I have never gone to see a movie together. After talking this over with her, we decided that we would attend the grand debut of Brave, because it opens on my birthday. Were gonna wear our real dress up clothes with make-up and high heels. We might even wear our fancy hats and gloves. Im sure thatll be Breeze Cineplex, too. I stopped at a produce stand on Highway 98 last week for some fresh tomatoes for sandwiches. I also found that they have yellowmeated watermelons! My Daddy used to grow these and I havent seen one since I was a child. I remembered that they had a lot less seeds than red watermelons back then and Daddy had a hard time course, I bought one. While this one had a lot more seeds (which were darker than I remember) it still tasted the same. These watermelons are a lot sweeter than the red ones; almost as sweet as honey. Thats the taste of childhood right there. Watermelons were standard fare for our 4th of July celebration not to mention everyday life. We would just go in the garden and pick out our own baby watermelon and crack it open on a rock. Thats some good eating! This weeks recipe is something for the little ones to help with and the big ones to enjoy. Its a deliciously cold summer dessert. It makes a beautiful red, white and blue dish for the 4th of July. Grown-ups can make the jello the day before and let the little ones cut the jello (with a plastic knife). Gives them something to do. Just set them up at a table with all the ingredients.. Ok, lets cook.Fruit Explosion 1 box strawberry jello 1 box blueberry jello Cool whip Fresh strawberries, sliced Fresh blueberriesMake jello according to directions on box.

Paul Lambert. I have been appointed priest secretary for Bishop Gregory L. Parkes effective July 5. I have cherished this opportunity, afforded me by Shelley Johnson, to contribute to this great local source of the life and culture of Pensacola Beach. I want to leave you with a message of thanksgiving. During the formative years of our lives, we were taught to say "please" and "thank you." We are taught the necessity of be gracious towards others or else we might be seen as cold, or rude. However, this disposition of thankfulness provides us with something so much more. By being thankful we more fully receive from what we have received. We recognize that what we have been given is a gift. When we thank someone for ringing up our groceries, we thank them because for that short span of time, they shared a part of our lives. My upcoming assignment affords me the opportunity to see this graciousness played out in the most humble of ways. I have only just gotten to know and observe Bishop Parkes, but I can already see this great spirit of graciousness. When he looks at you, you know that for the entirety of that conversation you are the most important person in his life. I hope to learn this graciousness to truly encounter other people, not a means to an end, but a mystery to behold. When we can see through these eyes, we will truly get a glimpse of Heaven. God Bless. The Santa Rosa Island Authority Board looked for ways to get the most bang for the buck at their third Budget Workshop, June 13. The $8 million budget, which is still in a draft form, must be approved and ready to submit to the Escambia County Commissioners on June 28. In an effort to update a lingering list of 34 unfunded projects, the Board tasked Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio to prioritize the list. In his report, he rated each project against a set of three queries: (1) what gets used most often by the most people, (2) what can realistically be completed, and (3) if we did nothing to this item, and just let it deteriorate, how much would it cost to rebuild it? Based on the criteria, he presented the Board with a list of ten items, totaling $880,000. They are: elevate existing dune walkovers, resurface public parking, resurfacing streets, storm drainage, recreation park improvements, public restrooms at Quietwater, Sabine Channel dredging, sidewalk maintenance, water tower maintenance and Quietwater Amphitheatre improvements. We have an aging infrastructure, said Ghio. It needs to be maintained. I would not recommend new construction while having infrastructure falling apart around you. Ghio brought the multi-use path to the Boards attention noting that it is in the County right-of-way so funding could be requested from the County for that repair and improvement. The Board will continue to discuss the list of unfunded projects. Other items which were discussed: Rosa Island Authoritys charter requires the promotion of the island. The proposed budget has been amended to return the advertising allocation to $400,000, which matches the 1997 level of support. The Board also increased the stipend to the Pensacola Beach Chamber to $50,000 to target locals in off-season events. Renourishment: $100,000 to be added to other funding sources. Roads: Neighborhood or secondary streets on the Island which belong to the SRIA must be repaired. Vernon Prather requested that $140,000 be allocated this year, and that money be set aside annually for these projects. The Board applauded the dedication and performance of the SRIA employees. Board member Prather suggested that an analysis and evaluation of the differences in County and SRIA employee pay should be completed. will be Wednesday, June 27 following the conclusion of the SRIA Committee meetings in the boardroom. The Workshop is open to the public. Would you like to be on a songwriter? The promoters of the Pensacola Beach Songwriters time, an Adopt-A-Songwriter program. We are looking for locals who will open their homes to our talent said Reneda Cross, the festivals coordinator. It is a really cool experience for the host family and the visiting songwriter. I have seen lifelong friendships forged in programs like this. The program is set up for visiting songwriters, who will be performing on Pensacola Beach from October 2 through October 8, to stay with beach hosts or alternatively in an owners vacation home or condo. The host is asked to provide housing, but food is not necessary. All songwriters are pre-screened to participate in the program. In exchange for accommodations, Songwriters Festival organizers will give host families a pass to gain entry into the weekend events. As a thank you, we will make wristbands available to the hosts, said Cross. The wristbands allow entry into the listening rooms where the talent performs for select crowds. Songwriters keep odd hours, so that is a consideration. Oftentimes they work late performing for fans at one of the fifteen festival venues. If you want to help, but dont have room to host a songwriter, there are a number of volunteer opportunities. We have lots of spots for fans to be part of the festival, said Cross. You can help sell merchandise, hand out freebies or assist with songwriter check in. Beach resident Becky Shearman has been a volunteer every year that the Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival has been hosted on the island. For more information about the Adopt-A-Songwriter program or to volunteer, contact Cross at rc.songwriters@yahoo.com or call 850-341-0889.

Check out my other residential lot listings: Gulf Breeze addl locations Featured Listing Waterfront Lot Gulf Breeze After four years of living in Southern Maryland, the Colonel, the Kid and I wrestled beltway traffic to spend one final weekend as a family in Baltimore -a city that is known as much for its game as it is for its grime. Baltimore is home to the Ravens and Orioles. Its streets are home to some of the highest crime statistics in the United States. It's the Yin and the Yang of this city from the crack of the bat at Camden Yards to the junkie on crack standing outside a battered and long forgotten yard that makes it a favorite in popular culture and an interesting place to visit. Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps is the unofficial face of Baltimore and a tenant in one of the very expensive high rise Inner Harbor condominiums. Contrast that with the street characters cast on "The Wire", a crime drama series which aired on HBO for 6 years and 60 episodes. Again, the Yin and the Yang. Standing in the lobby of Hotel Monaco, I realized I was no longer in sleepy St. Mary's County. Our hotel was once the landmark Baltimore & Ohio Railroad headquarters. It was built in 1906 and designed by the premiere architectural firm of its time, Parker & Thomas. The original marble floor and Tiffany stained-glass windows were still perfectly in use. I shut my eyes just for a moment in order to take in all the sounds of hustle and bustle of 2012. The chatter probably wasn't that much different than in the day of Oscar G. Murray, the B&O president. Except now his building was filled with tourists, dressed in shorts and t-shirts, wanting dinner reservations, an early check-in, a ride to the airport, and tickets to the Orioles' game. Soon we found ourselves sitting at an outdoor cafe just down the street from our hotel, enjoying the harbor breeze while sipping ice cold beverages and munching on local crab cakes. With gin and tonics, and a lemonade in hand, we raised our glasses on high -a toast to Lord Baltimore and his namesake city, and to his harbor that is filled with naval vessels and tall ships from around the world. International tall ships? More than 40 "grey hulls"? We had stumbled into the launch of Star-Spangled 200, the celebration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the penning of the National Anthem. Who knew? From the size of the crowds, The Lizzards Tongueby elizabeth hewson Baltimore. B&O Railroad. The Blues. One final goodbye. everyone except us. I was beginning to experience the Yin and the Yang of the city myself -from the hustle and bustle and floral fragrances in the former B&O building to plod along and stop in your tracks with ample amounts of B.O. in the air. When did we become a deodorant-free society? Then, as if on cue, while shuffling along hand in hand with my family, I heard a very familiar noise -the roar of jet engines, in formation, and propelling blue painted aircraft at incredible speeds. It was the Blues Angels. The crowds were paralyzed with delight. It was only between shutter clicks on cameras that an audible gasp from on-lookers could be heard as the Blues performed over Baltimore Harbor and would appear to come screaming out of nowhere from behind the city's skyline. Timing is everything. We checked out of the Hotel Monaco early on Sunday morning, the Saturday celebrants and crowds were all gone. Any building inset or nook had become temporary housing for the homeless. Panhandlers were already lining up on the street corners that surrounded the hotel. The valet explained that by 9 a.m. they would all go away. I didn't ask where because I was leaving as well. I had had my fill of the Yin and the Yang. Until next time... Linda Thompson, left, gets individual stroke instruction from professional paddleboarder and former Pensacola Beach resident Slater Trout during the SUP Clinic hosted by Innerlight, June 17 in Little Sabine Bay. Trout now resides in Hawaii. Innerlight on Pensacola Beach hosted the Slater Trout Stand Up Paddleboard Clinic for June 17 in Little Sabine Bay. Dozens signed up for the intermediate class which included individual and group instruction from champion pro paddleboarder Slater Trout. Michael Chapman, above, made the two hour drive from Enterprise, Alabama to attend the event. Chapman, 45, has been hooked on the sport for two years according to his wife. Torrential rains canceled the events original date of June 9.

Space is limited. Schools out for summer but members of the Pensacola Beach Elementary School Board do not take a break. The Board met June 18 on campus with an agenda that ranged from construction to instruction. Summers quiet will be punctuated by the sounds of contractors at the Beach School as a geothermal cooling system is installed, and a roof extension to cover the student drop off area is built. The Board also voted unanimously to cure the degradation of metal beams under the school buildings. There are a number of ways to do this, said Board President Todd McCurdy. I will research the options and pricing for an email vote, so it can be complete before school begins in August. Principal Jeff Castleberry told the Board that school ended on a good note with high FCAT scores and a PTA sponsored Water Fun Day. He also noted there are already 135 students signed up for next year, and enrollment continues. The class size limits had not yet been reached. The Board approved CastleReturning classroom teachers are Jennifer Neal, Debbie Campanella, Joy McLaurine and Tara Turk. Ginny Baynes will teach physical education and Mary Holway is the music teacher. Monika Springer will serve in the computer lab. Currently, there are openings for two full time classroom teachers and a part-time art teacher. School bells and wedding bells have clashed lately leaving the School Board members with ously granted permission to wedding guests to use the parking spaces, but recently groups have overstepped and overparked at the campus. They had blocked off our parking lot for their own use. That is unacceptable, said McCurdy. One group had cars parked on the grass inside the school yard. After discussing restrictions, policing and options for compensation, the Board voted to place no parking on the grass signs in the landscaped play area. The matter will remain open for further discussion. The Board will meet next on Monday, July 23 at 6 p.m. on campus. Meetings are open to the public.

The article was short, but the accompanying cartoon was excellent. It definitely grabbed my interest which led me to the Boston Globe and Chicago Tribune newspapers. Still my curiosity was not satisfactorily quenched, and I went to the Journal Nature In order to read the full paper Approaching a state shift in Earths biosphere, written by 22 scientists (US, Canada and South America), I needed to shell out a mere $32 or I could subscribe for a year, get the printed weekly journal and have unlimited access to archives online. I ended up subscribing. Let me tell you that I have to put a lot of work into reading these articles. I have a dictionary, science books with dictionaries and calls into my husband who graduated from a prestigious engineering university. Need I say more? The bottom line is that we are over-populating our planet. The present rate of population growth on Earth is unsustainable. Basically the climates in different areas of the planet that we are use to, are going away and will disappear completely within the next 90 years. The new global temperatures replacing the old ones within the next thirty years will be higher than anything we as a species have ever experienced. Plant species will not be able to maintain their existence for the human species requirements for survival. Animal species will not be able to maintain their existence for the human species requirements for survival. And what do we do as a species? Do we listen to our scientists who are trying to warn us about the Earths tipping points? Oh Hell no, we are more interested in reality television. Do we want to allocate more money to our space program so that we could put a group of our species on another planet? Oh Hell no, we are more interested in welfare and war. Do we stop to think about our species going the way of the dinosaurs and just being replaced with another species? Oh Hell no, we are so self-centered we think we are special thanks to religions. And after reading those questions and answers, maybe that is what we deserve. The only part that really upsets me is that Earth may resemble Mars some day. And that is something our planet never deserved! Q: What is Apple FaceTime? A: For 99 cents, you can download the FaceTime application to your iPhone 4, Ipad 2, Mac computer or iPod Touch. The software can be used to initiate video chats with other users of those Apple products. To use FaceTime on iPhones, dial the other persons phone number. For other devices, connect by selecting their email address. If you own multiple Apple devices, the FaceTime program will ring on all of them, so it might be hard to ignore the call. FaceTime supports high resolution video (720p) and can display your images in a picturein-a-picture layout. It can be used in portrait or landscape mode. With the iPhone 4, the person with whom you are chatting can see you in one camera view and you can show them what you are seeing through the second camera. A simple tap on the screen switches between the two camera views. Technically, this product should be able to connect with non-Apple devices. It uses an open standard, which means that other manufacturers should be able to develop interfaces for their equipment if they desire to in the future. Right now it only works with Apple devices. Windows users currently use products such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger, and Windows Live. Those products require the user to set up special accounts and passwords. The FaceTime program works as soon as it is installed. It uses the email addresses and phone numbers that are already in your contact list, without setting up any special accounts.

BREAKFAST! Lunch 11 AM TO 2 PM FRI -SAT 3 PM TO 9 PM 11 AM TO 2 PM FRI -SAT NOW OPENARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be prepared to face some challenges stirred up by an envious colleague. Your best defense is the Arian's innate honesty. Stick with the truth, and you'll come out ahead. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sensitivity to the needs of others is admirable. But be careful to avoid those who would take unfair advantage of your good nature, especially where money is involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Having an optimistic attitude be lulled into a false sense of lems to deal with before you can totally relax. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel somewhat "crabby," as you fuss over plans that don't seem to work out. Maybe you're trying too hard. Ease up and let things happen without forcing them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Heed that keen Leonine instinct. It's trying to tell you to delay making a decision until you're sure there are no hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good time to reach out to those who might be nursing hurt feelings over recent events. Best advice: Ignore any pettiness that could delay the healing process. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your understanding helps a colleague get through a difficult period. Although you didn't do it for a reward, be assured that your actions will be repaid down the line. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You score some high marks in the workplace, which will count in your favor when you face the possibility of changing direction on your current career path. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your goal lies straight ahead. Stay focused on it and avoid distractions that could throw off your aim and cause potentially detrimental delays. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Keep that burst of exuberance in check and resist pushing through your new project before it's ready. In your personal life, a family member again needs help. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Paying attention to your work is important this week. But so are your relationships with those special people in your life. Make time for them as well. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Good news. Someone is about to repay a long-standing debt. But be warned. That same someone could try to charm you into lending it back unless you say no and mean it.Share Some Stuff To Help The PupsThink about grabbing a few extra household cleaning items next time you stock up as a great way to help the Humane Society of Pensacola. They are seeking donations of paper towels, hand soap, hand sanitizer, laundry detergent, Pine Sol, bleach and 30 gallon garbage bags. The donations may be dropped off at the no-kill shelter which is located at 5 North Q Street in Pensacola, MondaySaturday, 9:30 to 4. Call 850432-4250 for easy directions from the beach.

It was just a few years ago that I saw my first boil, the magical occasion when sea turtle hatchlings break through the surface, spill from their nest, and search for a path to the sea. For many people, including myself, it is an emotional experience to actually be there and watch the hatchlings as they emerge. The instinct and determination observed in the tiny creatures is amazing, but the stakes are high. Each hatchlings struggle represents that of an endangered species to survive. served which sparked my interest in sea turtles, but a passion for sea turtle conservation quickly grew from that point. Stumbling upon the nest and witnessing the hatchlings emerge that night on the beach was a coincidence that brought about meaningful changes in my life. It led me to ally into a position as a patroller. If you had told me a decade ago that I would willingly get up at 4 a.m. for anything, much less to look for tracks of an ancient creature a giant reptile, no less laughing two counties away, but ful tapestry with our life. In the years that followed, there have been many sea turtle sighting of sea turtle tracks, which unfortunately turned out to be a month I witnessed a loggerhead in the process of nesting on the beach! I cant wait to see what I discover on each and every patrol ies with others. Speaking of sharing, Ive had people asking when and where on Pensacola Beach this year, outside the areas of Gulf Islands National Seashore. There was considerable excitement when we learned it was laid behind the Holiday Inn Express on Ft. Pickens Road on June 11. This work the Holiday Inn Express put into making their property sea turtle friendly by installing the proper lighting and providing information in each hotel room, explaining what occupants can do to help sea turtles and their sacola Beach. ceived recognition from the Turtle Friendly Beach Program, which is sponsored by the Sea Turtle Conservancy and the University of Floridas Sea Grant Extension Service. They were noted as a able nesting habitat for sea turtles and had complied with a variety of guidelines. The beautiful sign which the Holiday Inn Express played in their lobby, but the icing on the cake was when a mama loggerhead rewarded the hotel Beach this year. Congratulations to Beverly McKay and her staff at the Holiday Inn Express! Properties like the Holiday Inn Express that switch to turtle friendly lighting and educate guests are certainly making their beach area more attractive to sea turtles, but they are also important in increasing the number of turtle nests on Pensacola Beach itself. ers associations, and individual home owners on our beach who become more involved in sea turtle conservation will also see positive results by switching to turtle friendly lighting, especially after the success of the Holiday Inn Express. There seems to be a ground swell of interest in our area when tourism. You may have noticed the street lights on Ft. Pickens Road were replaced with shielded ly, almost two years ago. We still have street lighting issues on Via de Luna, but we are making progress. If you have any questions regarding sea turtles or sea turtle conservation, you may send them to TurtleTrax@yahoo.com Until next time, Lights out!
