I have had a Cocker Spaniel, French Poodle, Dachshund, Bull Dog, Springer Spaniel, Irish Setter and a few assorted mutts. I have also had a parakeet, a pony, a monkey, an alligator, tropical fish, a huge white rabbit, two bantam roosters, a gray squirrel, and numerous kittens. Each of these animals has etched some special niche in my heart, but none can be remembered in quite the same way as a pair of greyhounds named Duke and Duchess. Actually, I inherited those two lithe, fawn colored creatures. They originally belonged to my brother who thought it would be neat to train them to race until he found out how much work it entailed. So, he gallantly turned them over to me, and I suddenly owned two giant pets. I hung on to their leashed for dear life as they galloped me down the street every day, and I would spend long hours brushing them, feeding them, and trying to keep their water buckets filled. I was allowed to keep the two monsters in the basement of our home until my dad discovered fleas in the pool table, and he evicted them to a warehouse area he owned. I walked there every day to care for the dogs and all went well for a while. Unfortunately, a green house was next to the warehouse and one night the dogs playfully ran across the top of it, breaking every single tiny window glass. After he paid the bill for getting rid of the fleas and replacing the greenhouse glass, my Dad tried to convince me that those dogs had to go. I pleaded with him to give them one more chance, so he took them to his sand pit which was a long way out in the country. I was not too happy with that decision but it was better than not having dogs at all, so I then proceeded to hang around his office until one of the trucks was dispatched to the sand pit and I would hitch a ride and spend the day with the dogs. The workmen on the sand boat and the dogs and I were all having a pretty good time until the nail sack incidents began. Every morning I lugged big brown paper bags of food for the dogs with me so, naturally, they thought all large paper bags contained food. Which isn't totally true. Nails were delivered to the sand boat in large brown paper bags. Somehow, these bags of nails began to disappear during the night. No one ever tried to steal anything from the boat since the dogs spent the night there, so it wasn't a thief. The mystery continued until some busy body caught Duke and Duchess sniffing the nail bags, and disappointed that the bags did not contain a few choice morsels, they calmly dropped them over the side of the boat into thirty feet of water. The busy body told my dad. Again, I had to make a dramatic plea to save my dogs, and arrangements were finally made to send them to my uncle's farm. I could ride my bike out there, so I was ecstatic that I no longer had to wait for the trucks. My uncle raised Dalmatians and race horses, and Duke and Duchess fit right into that animal kingdom until they found a nearby farm house with a pen full of chickens. They killed the chickens. All of them! Well, after my Dad paid the farmer for all those chickens, I knew I would have to employ some kind of new strategy, so I asked if I could keep just one of the dogs, and bring him back to town if I de-flead him everyday even every hour. I really begged. My Dad finally acquiesced. Duchess went to a greyhound racing trainer and Duke stayed with me. He hardly ever left my side and we began to grow older together. When I was a freshman in high school, he came at the end of the day to meet me, and when my friends would reach out to touch him, he would jump away gracefully, like a huge gazelle. He was so shy that he would never allow anyone to pet him but me. That summer, Duke came home one day and laid under a tree. He never got up again. All day long, I kept moving my beloved paralyzed dog from shady spot to shady spot. I sponged his long,beautiful face with cool, wet towels. Finally, my Mother called the vet. The news was all bad. Duke had been poisoned, and the vet took him away. My heart was broken...and even my Dad had a tear in his eye. ~Sympathies ~In 1958, JR Turner brought his wife Louise and sons Herb and BRZ to an island paradise called Pensacola Beach.

Answers came from kids, sailors, sweethearts and smart folks; but no one topped the retired United States Army Colonel Mike Cook for speed and accuracy. The waterfront Beach resident knew that the leatherback was the largest species of turtle in the world. He made no comment about who the biggest beach barfly might be. The Trivia Master who hobnobs with know-it-alls shared this documentation: The leatherback sea turtle is the largest species of turtle in the world and, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service, it is also the largest living reptile. Leatherbacks can grow up to seven feet long and weigh more than one ton. According to National Geographic, the largest leatherback turtle ever found washed up on the coast of Wales in 1988. It was a male turtle that was 8.5 feet long and weighed 2,020 pounds. Christy Sullivan said just knowing she was correct was prize enough for her and sent a special blessing to the turtles and their trivia fans. Lila Cox thought it might be a trick question, but was on target with her answer. Greg Christoff and Tim Pike both know their turtle trivia. Ten-year-old Gulf Breeze Elementary School student Pier McMillan who had a harrowing experienced while fishing knew it was leatherback. He helped save a hooked green turtle. This question had people turning different colors. Walter Foster is green with envy over his wifes trivia t-shirt. Jersey Girl Gwen has been showing off her shirt. In an attempt to earn a shirt, husband Walter sent the correct answer, but way too late. Gwen is hiding her shirt from him. Sitting red-faced at the Roundtable Lady Kim Schmitz who corrected her original answer of leatherneck to leatherback and blamed her spell check. Semper Fi Lady. Sir Morrie, Gwen Foster and a host of others nominated the Galapagos Tortoise as the largest turtle. Sir Offshore Chuck Brower took the Trivia Master to the shores of Indonesia with his answer. The Star Fish turtle from Indonesia is the largest in the world. They are called the starfish because the back looks like a star fruit. They can weigh up to 900 pounds. Sorry, the TM is sticking with his NOAA know-it-alls. Deep in the sand dunes of Mexico Beach, Chuck Steele conjures up a vision of a Wooly Mastadon Turtle which never roams south of Interstate 10; and, thus is no danger to his beach friends. The NOAA know-it-alls probably knew nothing of this hairy friend of Chucks. And, the glittery crown of the Queen of Wrong Answers remains untarnished. Joanne Brooks sends a Tale of a Turtle. I believe that the largest turtle (not tortoise) is an Alligator Snapping Turtle. When we lived in town, our townhouse was on Carpenter's Creek. When some construction was done, a very large Alligator Snapping Turtle was disturbed. At that time it was estimated to be 100 years old. It was relocated to the Escambia River. They live in the mud and rarely move. They entice their food by sticking out their tongue which looks like a fishing lure on the end. Therefore, food! Keep us entertained, Queenie. The Trivia Master posts a photo challenge in honor of the Beach kids who trek back to school this month. Can you identify these two beach residents? Hint: they are both Gulf Breeze High School students. Remember, it takes both names to win. You could go to the head of the class wearing a new Island Times t-shirt! Dont be a dunce; send your answer to islandtimes@ bellsouth.net. Just like school, there are rules: include trivia in the subject line and your name and phone number with your answer. Deadline to enter is Tuesday, August 14. Who are these two beach kids?LIVE MUSICBETTY ON BAYOUPensacola resident Betty Fowler, 84 years young, sends her best to the Beach Turtle brigade. She called Holiday Inn Express General Manager Beverly McCay to submit her baby turtle name and guess of the hatching date since she was not able to attend the Shower. She chose Myrtle as a name because her son "who is now grown" had a turtle as a child and they called it Myrtle. She chose August 9 at 9 p.m. as the hatch date and time. Good luck Betty and Myrtle.GLAM GRANDMOTHEREvery student who passes through Gulf Breeze Middle School knows Becky Grace, the schools longtime secretary. She and husband Patrick are welcoming a new grandson, Declan, to the family. Declan has big brother Finian, who is now 16-monthsold, to show him the ropes.TUESDAY PATThe Pensacola Beach Visitors Information Center has a cast of volunteers who greet and assist the thousands of visitors who arrive in the lobby looking for directions, discussion, maps and good advice. Pat Cribb, who volunteers every Tuesday, had her very own visitors to show around last month. Her young nieces Lauren and Erica Stemler from Park City, Utah were on the beach.

PAGE 5 Island Times August 7, 2012 www.PensacolaBeachMardiGras.com Tim Jones request to extend his dock one hundred feet into Santa Rosa Sound was tied up when neighbors voiced their concerns at the July 25 Santa Rosa Island Authority Architectural and Environmental Committee meeting. After hearing comments from two neighbors, their attorney and Environmental Scientist Jason Taylor, the committee asked the concerned parties to meet with staff to reach an agreement. Staff will bring the results back to the committee in August. A request to move a dock, made by Greg Whibbs of Villa Sabine, met the same fate. The committee asked staff to attempt to mediate and bring the results to the next board meeting. The Administrative Committee made it less costly for Island residents and businesses to have plans reviewed. SRIA Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio proposed a reduction in fees for those submitting signs or fence plans from $50 to $25. Businesses will be charged $200 for renovation and addition plans, half of the previous charge. We are not struggling for revenue, said Administrative Committee Member Ed Guernsey. I think we should adopt this new fee structure as a way of giving back. We are able to do that right now. The Committee unanimously approved the new fee schedule. The Development and Leasing Committee keeps close tabs on the lease fee and property tax issue. Guernsey admitted that the topic is complicated and he continues to seek equitable ways to resolve the dilemma. He noted that although it makes sense to see how the Supreme Court will rule on the legality of taxing leaseholders, it is important to have a plan in place prior to the ruling. We dont want to wait until the Supreme Court decides before we make some sort of public stand about what we think should be done, said Guernsey. We cannot control what the County does with the tax receipts, but we can make requests. It is incumbent on us to make sure those dollars are brought back to the beach for the purposes of making the unfair taxes more fair. The SRIA recognized the importance of identifying the economic impact of the beach and continues to share that information in public meetings, on a local television series and with the media. The board will receive the results from a study prepared on the topic by the Haas Center. We need to educate the people about who we are, what we do and how we fund ourselves, said Guernsey. The Haas report will add to the validity of what you are saying, commented SRIA Chairman Dave Pavlock. Beach resident and Board member Tammy Bohannon reminded the Committee that there are many new Island residents who are paying a substantial lease fee coupled with association dues and ad valorem taxes. The idea that the lease fee is a small amount no longer is accurate, said Bohannon. There are many who are burdened with a heavy financial load. The topic will remain on the Committees agenda. The Santa Rosa Island Authority dedicated a proclamation to honor some of the Islands oldest residents, the sea turtles. In the proclamation, which Awareness Day on Pensacola Beach, the board noted that the sea turtles have been nesting on the island for centuries prior to humans arrival. The economic and environmental impact of the conservation efforts should be recognized. The proclamation was to be presented at Pensacola Beachs first ever Sea Turtle Baby Shower. The Full Board will meet in the boardroom, #1 via de Luna. The meeting is open to the public. Agendas are posted at www.

It is a series of e-mails generated between several of my friends concerning the Sea Turtle Baby Shower. The Shower was originally planned for July 28 at the Holiday Inn Express on Ft. Pickens Road, but had to be rescheduled for the next weekend due to stormy weather. Im still laughing, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. From Peggy Henshall, July 28, 2012 @ 8:20 p.m.: Yep, George and I went to the Turtle Shower at the Hilton. Bob and Patrice met us there. I brought a present that I made for D.J. We never found the Turtle Shower. The people at the Hilton didnt know what we were talking about. We ended up walking next door to the Holiday Inn, ran into Lindsey Stanley, and drank myself silly. That would mean two margaritas. We had a fabulous time. The weather was beautiful and we talked, laughed, and watched all of the people in the bar and on the beach. I saw a man with too much hair stuffed into too small a swimsuit and a large woman who looked like she was in her underwear. From D.J. Zemenick, same day @ 9:09 p.m.: Oh my! I dont know where to start! LMBO Although we had to postpone for weather, the event was at the Holiday Inn Express on Ft. Pickens Road, Peggy. So close, but yet so far away. Looking at the positive side, the Hilton (on Via de Luna) also begins with an H We should have just headed down your way and drowned the sorrows of our postponement at your private party. I second your opinion about bathing suits. I saw an older, not I was on the beach this morning during turtle patrol. While I applaud young Olympians who turned off by pudgy older men in when the speedo is a leopard print. UGH! (My note: Maybe hes planning to attend the Nauga Champagne Brunch?) We dont know why Mother Nature wouldnt cooperate, but I know for sure that it will work out for the best. Shelley Johnson, Sunday, at 12:18 a.m.: Glad we could be the impetus for your Turtle Cocktail as long as the drinks were green, its all good. Paulette Provost, Sunday @ 1:17 p.m.: Actually there were two turtle cocktail parties going on. We were at Paradise dressed tire, with turtle pins, rings and turtles with great ceremony! Turtle shower cocktail attendees included Kathi Lewis, Christine and Lonnie Hewerdine, Amy DePew, Paulette Provost, Deb Friedman, Little John, Sharon Mattair, Cathy Long and Renee Mack and other assorted folks that were at the lively beach bar! Lila Cox Sun. @ 8:36 p.m.: I have to tell you how much I enjoyed to Sea Turtle Baby Shower that wasnt yesterday. Those of us involved in the event were gathering up our stuff and talking to those who showed up. A lot of people asked me if I was D.J. (I lost count). She is a Rock Star with a great following. I am so proud. DJ has done such a great job with her blog, videos and photos helping us all learn more about this endangered species. (My note: Dont miss DJs Turtle Trax on page 18 of this edition of IT.) She was as bubbly as a glass champagne. Im sorry we missed Peggys party at the wrong location and the other girls at Paradise, but we had a cooler of beer after the shower. There is no place like Pensacola Beach. Paulette Provost, Sunday @ 8:43 p.m.: Beautifully said Miss Lila! Rock on, DJ! And thanks to all of you who worked so hard on the cancelled Turtle Shower! Deb Friedman, Sunday @ 8:58 p.m.: I think we have two rock stars DJ and Lila! My prediction is this is just the beginning of another truly Island annual tradition. Im proud and very Blessed to be a part of it. Becky Shearman, Monday @ 7:28 a.m.: I am clapping for our Turtle Rock Stars! DJ Zemenick, Monday 8:56 a.m.: What Lila said was very sweet. I just supplied photos and video. It was Lila, Beverly McCay and Shelley Johnson who did all the hard work. What I contribute just gives some emotional attachment to our cause. Those little turtles are just so darn cute. Peggy Henshall, Monday @ 9:00 a.m.: Oh my, to add to all of the rest of DJs attributes of charming, intelligent, eloquent; she is humble. My note: Lord help me, I love these amazing women! And Id like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who made the Sea Turtle Baby Shower such a talked about and spectacular event! I have to agree with Deb in believing this is just the start of another annual island tradition. I just cant see how yall can top this next year. It still cracks me up just reading this whole conversation. I know its way past time to get down to the basis of my column and Ive got a great recipe to share! Why this one?

PAGE 8 Island Times August 7, 2012 Pensacola Beach Chamber members shared the sweet successes of summer and optimism that the strong line-up of fall events will continue to make cash registers ring. Among the thirty business representatives who attended the July 31 monthly Chamber meeting at Days Inn, hoteliers and vacation rental agencies were reporting strong reservations through the end of October. We have been slammed all summer, said Marta Ray, Days Inn. Our weekends are booked through fall. There is no shortage of festivals and events for residents and guests. Beach Chamber Events Chairman Beverly Campbell updated the members with details of the Taste of the Beach, September 15-16 followed by the Art and Wine Festival, October 6-7. host our wine tasting at our festival site, said Campbell. We have kicked it up a notch for a higher quality guest experience. More performers, more artists, better wine. The Art and Wine Festival will showcase performing artists, art vendors, a wine tasting tent and complimentary food selections. The wine tasting tickets guests receiving a jute wine bag. Chamber President Maureen LaMar noted that the Chamber membership has grown to 136 members as she welcomed new member Water Warrior, a paddleboarding company owned by Becky Harger and located at Pensacola Beach Marina. Harger has recently received national recognition as the ACA instructor of the Month. Her class selection includes everything from beginners paddle boarding to an inner voyage experience. I am so grateful to the beach business community for sharing our information, telling visitors about us, said Harger. It brings me so much joy to make people happy as they learn to paddleboard. While paddleboarding is a new beach sport, miniature golf has been around the beach for decades. Kelly Eddins of Hampton Inn announced that the Tiki Island Golf and Games is a family friendly activity and the course has been refurbished. Rick Gordon, Miracle Strip Corvette Club representative, said their local contingent included a round of miniature golf at a recent meeting. The Corvette Club will host their annual show September 15 in conjunction with the Chambers Taste of the Beach. We believe that between this years show, said Gordon. We have visitors arriving from across the nation. Among the fall events is Pensacola Beach American Legions The organizers have tee-signs forms are located at the Visitors Center. During the Roundtable discussion Nan Harper of Island Realty announced that her business is growing. She and her colleagues welcome Joni Grissom to Pensacola Beach Advocate President Jim Cox updated the Chamber on the results of the PBA Master Plan survey noting Those results were forwarded to the Santa Rosa Island Authority Board, Escambia County Commissioner Grover Robinson, who represents the beach, and the County engineering staff. He encouraged business owners to communicate with the SRIA board. The SRIA is currently going through a process to identify which projects will take a priority and how to fund them, said Cox. I suggest you contact the elected SRIA board member Dr. Thomas Campanella, or any SRIA board member to give them your input. Cox reminded the group that the State Supreme Court will consider the taxation litigation although no time frame for rendering a decision has been set. Currently, businesses and residents are paying ad valorem taxes and lease fees, which is a heavy burden. The leaseholders sued the County taxing authorities for levying taxes on their leasehold property and improvements. We are in a wait-and-see situation, said Cox. I would hope a decision would come before the end of the year. Beachkeeper Lila Cox congratulated the island business community for their participation in Sea Turtle conservation. She shared a number of items that Gulf front hotels will display to educate guests about how to help the beach be more turtle-friendly. The next Chamber meeting a.m. at the Days Inn.

Once again, for an event that is cherished by millions, it's been taken hostage by greed and the almighty dollar. I really have not appreciated NBC dictating to me when I can watch the medal rounds of certain events, including gymnastics and swimming. News flash: when someone waits four years for the most spectacular display of world competition-which is an incredibly long time for a society is just not right to broadcast tape delayed events, including the Opening Ceremonies. I am just not sure what NBC was thinking. I've read all the blogs and editorials. I even followed the tweet that landed the journalist Guy Adams twitterless. He tweeted NBC executive Gary Zenkel's corporate email address and was banned for publicly disclosing someone else's personal information. Adams has since been brought back into the nest of Twitter with Twitter's general counsel wishing they had the luxury of tape delayed decisions. So what is NBC's excuse for not going live as the events unfolded? Bottom line, a corporation reaching for the gold. I kept reading over and over that their corporate sponsors deserve the greatest audience share possible because of the hefty price tag on commercials and that meant airing the games during prime time. Here's a thought. How about broadcasting the Olympics live with no commercial interruptions and a bottom scroll that says the 30th Olympiad is being brought to you commercial free thanks in part to, and then list the sponsors. I would have had my television on archer's bow (3 a.m. CST) to the last punch thrown by the super heavy boxers (5:30 p.m. CST). I would have made an effort to watch the sports live that I like and recorded others to watch at a more convenient time. Additionally, there would be no way I could skip over the sponsors' messages because they are embedded at the bottom of the screen. Plus what is really prime time these days? And if it's so important, then why do Central and Mountain time zones have a different standard than Eastern net, prime time is whatever you want it to be except if you would like to watch the Olympics live. Now I know that NBC defended its decision and basically offered up its live streaming as the olive branch, but while trying to watch the Men's 100 Freestyle Finals, an event that lasted less than 50 seconds, 48.44 seconds to be exact, I couldn't even get a steady stream with my brand new system and high speed cable. American Nathan Adrian was probably already dressed and on out he won. I ended up watching it again in prime time, but only under protest. Not too long ago, NBC's slogan was Always With You. I guess after paying $1.2 billion for the American rights to these Olympic games, their current slogan of More Colorful really should be changed to Just Gold. Until next time...

A: Windows 8 (Microsofts next Windows Operating System) still hasnt been released, but Microsoft has hinted that it should be available for this holiday shopping season. Since it isnt released yet, we dont know the price. Typically, a shrink-wrapped copy of Windows is in the $100 range for the Home version and is in the $200 range for the Professional version. When you purchase a new computer, Microsoft is now including an upgrade coupon so that you can buy Windows 8 for $14.99 when it is released. That offer expires in the early part of 2013. It appears that you can apply that upgrade to any of your computers, but you computer meets the hardware requirements for Windows 8. Many of the computers from the Windows XP era will not meet those standards. After Windows 8 is released, new computers using Microsoft Windows will have Windows 8, instead of Windows 7, installed at the factory. In addition to the new software, new hardware is being released to position Microsoft in the market for post-PC products. New products include redesigned keyboards and mice, in addition to new tablet devices. The Wedge mouse will be designed to operate on any surface. The Bluetooth mouse will allow users to scroll to the left/right and up/down with a touch of will allow the user to zoom the screen and use gesture motions to move through options on the screen.

Deciding what to do, when and how to pay for it were the topics of discussion at the July 25 meeting. Chairman Fred Gant told the Committee that oil spill settlement money would be coming to Escambia County, and although the total is uncertain, it could be $113 million, $170 million or more. In an effort to establish a plan the Escambia County Commissioners have decided to appoint a committee of diverse people representing both public and private sector interests. The committee will likely be made up of seven to nine delegates and will begin work this fall. The beach needs a spot on the Committee, said Gant. Our staff and this Board need to find out how the money can be spent. When the time comes, it is important that we are ready to make a request. Gant further commented that there are different stipends of money which will be dedicated to different types of projects. Board Member Vernon Prather noted that with all the different pots of money that there will be many ideas about how the money should be spent. He noted that a great deal of money is sent from the Beach to the County, but an insignificant amount is allocated back to the beach. In order for the money to make it to Pensacola Beach, where the oil actually landed, we need to be very involved in this process, said Prather. County will have paid staff, but the SRIA staff is busy operating this island. We may have to think outside the box and hire someone whose main job is to secure funding for the Island projects. Board Member Tammy Bohannon concurred with hiring a consultant. When everyone is in charge, no one is in charge, she quipped. It is prudent to put out an RFP to hire a consultant. Someone who can consolidate the information, build consensus and walk the halls at the County. We need someone who is accountable to us. Chairman Dave Pavlock and elected Member Thomas Campanella believe it is the job of the SRIA board, assisted by staff, to take on this task. It is our responsibility to come up with a list of projects, keep it on the minds of the Commissioners and let them know whats going on, said Pavlock. We have a good rapport. We can tell our Commissioners how best to invest in the islands future. Board Member Ed Guernsey felt the investment in a consultant was advisable. He noted that if you look for funding, you must be informed. We need someone who can pinpoint the money and how to get it, said Guernsey. We need to look into this matter more carefully. SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee, whose varied experience includes stints as a County Commissioner and owning a government consulting firm, told the Board that there is no room to house a new hire, so a consultant would have to work remotely. He requested the Board write up the parameters for this consultant and he would prepare an RFP. After further discussion regarding the possibility of hiring a consultant, Campanella made a motion tasking Lee with preparation of a document describing the scope of the position. The motion passed unanimously. Ed Guernsey shared a vision for Pensacola Beach that includes a smooth functioning transportation system with trolleys and ferries, and a waterfront Convention Center to bolster shoulder season commerce. He is in favor of moving the SRIA office to the land near the Fire Station, and using the waterfront parcel which is within walking distance to core area hotels as the areas premier convention center. Additionally, his list of priorities included a more pedestrian friendly beach with improved crosswalks and an iconic walkable boardwalk encircling the core area. The pedestrian friendly ideas were also on Dave Pavlocks list along with upgrades to residential streets and Casino Beach parking lot, the removal of the sewer treatment plant and construction of a parking garage. Vernon Prather asked the Committee to return to the list of unfunded projects included in the recently approved budget. The Special Projects Committee will continue discussion of this item to refine, prioritize and seek funding for the improvement projects. The next meeting will be Wednesday, August 22 at 5 p.m. in the SRIA boardroom, #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public.

While I was on my trip, I started reading an excellent book entitled No Time To Lose A Life in Pursuit of Deadly Viruses, by Peter Piot. Dr. Piot is a clinical microbiologist and his first-hand account of chasing, isolating and eliminating (if possible) deadly bacterial viruses is a compelling read. Normally I try to be a little more upbeat in my writing, but this book coupled with several articles I read gives me reason to pause and think. What are we doing to ourselves as a species? Are we breeding ourselves out of existence? The first set of articles addresses hunger, thirst and overcrowding. One article discussed building smarter cities with hyper-efficient housing. The average apartment size would be 300 square feet. I personally dont want to live in a 300 square foot space. Two more articles focused on food and seeds. The startling fact was that banks are very much involved in global future markets. Why is that the case? There were more articles on slowing down climate warming. Every article was thoughtfully researched and written. They were all based on the Earths population reaching 9 billion people in approximately 40 years. This brings me back to my vacation. There were too many people. It was just bumper to bumper people and tempers did flare. My family and I did everything early in the morning to alleviate this problem and had a wonderful time as a result of careful planning. However, this in no way takes care of the future problem with just day to day living as the population approaches the 9 billion mark. My solution is a simple one, albeit very controversial. The above mentioned articles discussed band-aid fixes. We have to get to the root cause and correct it. Limit population growth worldwide and educate, educate, educate. High technology breeds better paying jobs. It requires a highly educated global work force. Productive people are usually happier, more content and have a sense of accomplishment in providing goods and services that are highly beneficial. It is never fun to go to the root cause of any outstanding problem or disaster. But this is one root cause that needs to be addressed.

Gary Dean, ECUA Sanitation Collection manager says, The unique feature of these improvements is customers will no longer have to call to schedule the pick-up. They will simply place their items at the curb, before 5:30 a.m., on their regular collection day. Its just that simple. Its important to note, any materials remaining in the rightof-way on the regular collection day may be mistaken for a bulk waste item. Customers are reminded to not place items that are not intended for disposal in the collection area to avoid inadvertent pick-ups. Bulky Waste Program Guidelines Items accepted are: Furniture, such as: Couch, Mattress, Desk, Chairs, Dresser; Rugs and carpets; Vacuum Cleaners; Bicycles; Bags of Clothes; Grills; and Toilets.
