She was seventeen, enrolled in pre-med, and part of her duties included helping a fellow classmate who was slowly going blind, determine what the students saw under the microscope in the lab. Liz would come home and tell about her friendhow brave she was, travelling from class to class with only a white cane to direct and protect her. How strong willed she was to attend classes every day, no matter how badly she felt. For, Lizs friend was suffering from a disease which, after her bodys slow deterioration, would prove fatal. So, when Liz told us that her friend had no family and no place to spend Thanksgiving, we heartily agreed that she should join us on the beach. When she arrived we discovered that she was an older lady, a registered nurse, whose ex-husband, a doctor, and her children lived in the East. She was indeed alone and seriously ill. But she taught us a thing or two. She brought her Polaroid camera along and she laughed as she took pictures of us almost constantly, somehow, despite her failing eyesight, she was a good camera lady. We decided to entertain her before dinner, so we took her to Flounders where she downed a drink which called forth the praises of the Foghorn (it nearly scared her to death!) and later, we drifted by the Islander Lounge, so she could see the beach as it really is! What a great time she hadcommenting on the fact that one pool table was covered with Islanders and the other with News Journals. She tasted the food we brought her, had a couple more drinks, kept us laughing, and somehow managed to follow her cane out the long dark passageway to the door without assistance. As we sat around our table, eating as if there were no tomorrow, she kept commenting on how wonderful it all was. She said over and over how good we were to invite her. She intelligently discussed political situations, the state of the union, and PJC. She could stay right with us on any subject that came up. I took her back to her apartment, late that cold Thanksgiving afternoon. I helped from the car and waited while she found her keys to let herself inside. She asked me in, switched on the lights. Oh, thank you. Thank you, so much, she said. I had the most wonderful time. And, her eyes were brimming with tears. It had been such a little thing to all of us, and such a monumental moment of happiness to Lizs friend. Could you possibly come back to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with us, I asked. Tears streamed down her cheeks. Oh, yes. Oh yes, she could. We all began to get excited about getting gifts for someone who truly needed others to help her, but when she arrived on Christmas Eve, she had brought us each a little memento from her home. Again, as at Thanksgiving, she had a great time, and we enjoyed her even more. I took her home again on Christmas night, and returned to the loving warmth of my family. The tree glittered and there was plenty left over for turkey sandwiches. A stack of gifts stood in the corner of my room. I sat still for a moment and thought the best gift of all was having Lizs friend over for Thanksgiving and Christmas, for it was in our giving that we received. Christmas ended the PJC semester. And we never saw Lizs friend again. Liz said she tried to look for her, but someone said she had moved away from Pensacola. I think about her often. She brought joy and an honest Thanksgiving to us three years agoand I wonder why she had to leaveI count my blessings when I think of her I try to imagine how I would feel if I were dying, alone and friendlessGrant Money Flows To Pensacola BeachSanta Rosa Island Authority Chairman Dave Pavlock received notification that $500,000 had been awarded through a grant from the Gulf Tourism and Seafood Promotional Fund. The grant, authored by a team composed of EW Bullock Associates, Lila Cox and Beverly McCay, focuses on making Pensacola Beach an eco-tourism destination through educational, informational and marketing plans. The SRIA Staff will implement the program. The Gulf Tourism and Seafood Promotion Fund has $43.7 million for distribution to those impacted by the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. The Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce applied for a $281,500 grant to support the Taste of the Beach, a culinary festival hosted the second week of September. Our request includes bringing a television celebrity chef to Pensacola Beach during our 2013 event, said Shelley Johnson Chamber chairman. The grant is funded for two years. We were one of 7 Florida agencies to be awarded for multiple years. In Florida, $33 million in grants were approved.

PAGE 5 Island Times November 13, 2012 The Pensacola Beach lodging representatives, who used to slow down after Labor Day, reported strong numbers during September and October at the Beach Chamber meeting, October 30 at the Days Inn. Marta Ray, sales manager at the Days Inn concurred with Kelly Eddins report from the Hampton Inn, that the shoulder season was a good one. The hotels along with the vacation rental businesses are looking forward to the holidays and getting properties ready for Christmas parties and New Years Eve bookings. The Pensacola Beach Visitors Center had 1557 guests states represented were Florida, Texas, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. The report, prepared by Ginny Sheehan, showed visitors from Germany, England and Canada signed in at the Center. Membership Chairman Karen Cook welcomed new members S & S Surfside Properties and Dr. Tracey Pinkston in her report. First time attendees included Warren Carrancejie and Freddy Esposito who are developing a Pensacola Beach App, and Cheri Lopez representing the Pensacola Beach RV Resort. Events Chairman Beverly Campbell gave updates on the Season Your Holidays with Island Spirit parade weekend. If you have not signed up to participate in one of these parades, do it, she said. The Shaker has participated and it is a really good time. The Lighted Boat Parade is set for Friday, December 7 at 6 p.m. The vessels leave Little Sabine Bay and travel to the Quietwater pier. The Surfing Santa Beach Parade will roll at 2 p.m. Sunday, December 9 from Avenida 10 to the Gulfside Pavilion where Santa will be available for photos. In addition to creating and promoting events on the island, the Pensacola Beach Chamber is currently helping to guide the greater Escambia Countys advertising efforts through participation in the Visit Pensacola Marketing Advisory Council, Tourist Development Council, TAAC and as an at-large member of the Pensacola Bay Area Chambers Board of Directors. The participation in these partnerships will benefit our entire area, said Chamber Chairman Shelley Johnson. The input we are able to give and the collaborative efforts are a real benefit to our members. The Beach Chamber meets Tuesday, November 27 at 8:30 a.m. at the Days Inn. Information on membership and events is available at www. PensacolaBeachChamber.com or 850-932-1500.Businesses Share Successes At Chamber Meeting Gulf Breeze High School student Eric Larsen, center, was awarded his Eagle Scout medal, October 23.

My Louisiana Love stays with you. The images and plight linger in your mind long after the screen goes dark. Loss, courage and love paraded across the screen in a deeply personal journal from the young woman who her tribe. Monique Verdin, who was raised on Pensacola Beach and graduated from Catholic High said, This feels kinda weird to show this to my close friends here on the Beach. It is so personal. The documentary, which has premiered nationwide and was shown November 1 at Paradise Bar and Grill to an audience of two dozen islanders. Among the group, many Louisiana ex-pats as Verdin so sweetly calls them. The documentary is highly personal, but the themes are universal. My Louisiana Love follows a young Native American woman, Monique Verdin, as she returns to Southeast Louisiana to reunite with her Houma Indian family. But soon she sees that her peoples traditional way of lifefishing, trapping, and hunting in these fragile wetlands is threatened by a cycle of manmade environmental crises. Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil leak are just the latest rounds in this century-old cycle that is forcing Moniques clan to adapt in new ways. Monique must overcome the loss of her house, her father, meaning of home. My Lousiana Love has been shown at no charge at Paradise twice, but that is just a perk of knowing Monique and her mother, Renee Mack. The documentary was viewed by audiences this summer in New Orleans at Loyola University and the New Orleans Museum of Art, at the same time it ran for 30 days at the Smithsonian, National Museum of American Indian, in Washington D.C. Of great importance to native people, it has a following in the western United States; showing at the Monument Valley Film Festival, in Arizona and Crested Butte Film Festival, Colorado. The documentary has made a name for itself at the American Indian Film Festival, San Francisco and the Red Nation Film Festival in Los Angeles. Toronto welcomed the piece at the imagcontinues to show at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Prague, Czech Republic. Film Director Sharon Linezo Hong said, We strived to make the documentary feel like Monique was telling her story to a new friend, much like when Monique and I were both 21 years old and she took me home to meet her French Indian grandmother, Matine. I sat at Grandmaw Matines kitchen table as she pulled out old photographs from a wooden box, and in broken English shared stories of her childhood in southeast Louisianas wetlands. She continued, Grandmaw Matines worn hands carried a history not well-known and now 10 years later I am honored to help pass on her story. We hope My Louisiana Love will help bigger decision-making tables and give a face to the dire need for a long-term balance between industrial development and preservation of indigenous cultures and the environment. The islanders, whether they are natives to Florida or Louisiana, gave the documentary high praise. To learn more, the films website is www. mylouisianalove.com.

Gift WrappingIt was a monumental day not only for our Country, but also for me personally as well as for the future of our Island life style. For our Country, President Obama was re-elected and we will be governed by his choices for another four years. Whether or not I voted for him doesnt matter. I was raised to respect I have and will always continue to pledge my allegiance to the Flag and to the Nation for which it stands. For me personally, this is my two-hundredth column in the newspaper I love and respect more than any other. Ive come a long way from the little red-haired, skinny, freckle-face girl raised in the countryside of South Georgia. Well, actually its only a couple hundred miles really. But its taken the better part of thirty years. Of course ing with others at the infamous Tiki Lounge and other long gone beach establishments. I have witnessed a lot of changes in paradise (not all of them for the better) and I have loved and lost a multitude of friends and family along the way. I have now lived more than half of my life here. And when I do leave, I plan for my ashes to be mixed with a ton of fairy dust and sprayed over every inch of this island. Fair warning keep your head down people! For my beloved island, hopefully our voices were heard by the Florida Supreme Court and they will uphold the Lease Agreements which bind us to our castles built in the sand. If so, life will continue pretty much as before. If not, then we will be taxed on property we may never own and pass down through the generations of our families. And if that happens, you can bet my lifestyle will change dramatically. Since my husband Bill is a disabled combat veteran of VietNam, we live on a limited income and property taxes arent currently within that limit. That means it will come out of the money I usually spend elsewhere since we never end up with an extra few thousand dollars at the end of the year. Hey, maybe I can get the government to budget my household income the same way they budget the money spent in Washington. No, wait a minute I think theyre already doing that. Oh well, its Thanksgiving and I still have a lot to be thankful for. (I know theres an English teacher out there right now grinding her teeth because I ended my sentence in a preposition. If my fourth grade teacher Mrs. Dawson is still alive, shes wishing she could crack my knuckles with that ruler.) But truly I do appreciate my life, my family, my friends, my neighbors, my old Caddywagon (which I love parking between two very expensive cars in any given parking lot) and right on down to the very sand on which my castle is built. Just a glance out of a window can remind me every day that I am truly Blessed and for this, I am forever grateful. I was also pleased as a Witch with a Black Cat to see so many Wrecks meeting at Sabine. Yall know theres a group of us who come every year dressed in our natural forms and we usually win the Costume Contest because so few attend in costumes. We were actually pleased to see some new, but familiar faces win for a change. So, witch hats off to Liz and Harry Hewson! I didnt actually count the costume entries cause I dont like to do math when Im playing, but there were a lot. I changed our entry name this year to the Witch and Famous so watch out next year. Dont forget to mark your calendars for Nov. 17 for the the Hurricane Season Good-Bye Bawl and the crowning of next years Queen Shugah. We had a Shugah Meeting with Queen Shugah Christine Hewerdine and the plans have been made and the die has been cast.. Please show your support and honor Q.S. Christine as she has done an extraordinary job this year. You are also welcome to bring a gift or token to honor and pledge your support to the next Queen Shugah. This tiara is getting heavier every year and Queen Shugah will need the support of all her loyal subjects. Do you want to be blamed if things go bad during a storm next season? Do you want to be the next Queen Shugah? Remember, it is a very important Wooly Booger Ritual to celebrate the end of another successful season of survival (try saying that 3 times real fast) and the Crowning of the next Queen Shugah. This celebration allows us to stop worrying for the next 6 months and enjoy the other seasons of our lives. Seasons such as Mardi Gras and Thanksgiving (give lots of thanks) and Christmas (dont forget the SOB Christmas Brunch Sun., Dec. 2). Since this is our Thanksgiving publication and my 200th column, I was tryBut if your family is like mine, then you have our favorites that you serve year after year. So, I decided that instead of offering a single recipe, I would just offer some tips for just a little bit of change in some of the old favorites. So, lets cook.. Green Bean Casserole you know you love it! So do I, but I changed it a bit by using cream of chicken soup (instead of cream of mushroom), addCup toasted almond slivers and about a cup of crushed Funyuns (instead of Frenchs dry canned). Add some on top and broil until crisp. Pumpkin Pie try adding softened cream cheese to pumpkin mix for a smooth and creamy taste. Or try browning the pie shell before adding the are the same thing but in the South, these are two very different and distinct foods. Stuffing is usually made with bread cubes tossed with butter and stuffed into the turkey before cooking. Dressing is made with cornbread adding bits of chicken, ground sausage, sage, lots of chicken broth, onion and anything else you want to add. But it is never put into the turkey! As far as Im concerned, there is never enough of either. Quick & Easy Dessert out of time and money? Pour 2 13 baking pan. Cover with dry cake mix (of your choice), then top with 2 sticks butter, sliced. Bake at 350 until done (about 30 minutes) Enjoy, share and have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

It is not so much a sentimental feelinga warm fuzzyas it is a recognition that reality is a sign of someone else. My existence is given to meI do not make myself.

In my need to love and be loved, my need for truth and for beauty, I recognize that my deepEach of us is, by nature, a relation So saying Thank You to the Mystery who makes me nowno matter what my circumstances are is a very reasonable thing to do. Thanksgiving begins with a judgment that my being is contingent, dependent, and therefore does not come from me. Thanksgiving can become more intense the more convinced I become that it is good to exist, that there is a reason for my being which is given to me. I hope each of us opens our reason a little bit wide to the Myslife arouses a little more interesting this Thanksgiving Season. The Seagulls Sing Why I Love Golf BY MIKE WILLETT If I could swap a boat ride for all the drives that I've hooked A cruise around the World on a ship I'd be booked. If I could pick a winner for all the easy putts I've blown, A stable full of horses and The Derby I'd own. That's why I love Golf I always will. When you have a bad day It ain't no big deal. If I could build a Golf course with all the sand traps I've seen. You could plant palm trees from L.A. to Augustine. A big pile of sand from coast to coast. With the clubhouse in Texas ,Willie Nelson's the host. That's why I love Golf ,I always will. When you have a bad day It ain't no big deal. Well some people ask me "Why I play this game?" Well it's not for the fortune and it's not for the fame. But if I keep on playing, I know that I'll see, Some fool in the rough who's as crazy as me. That's why I love Golf,I always will.

So I thought I would take a moment and go through a quick list of some of the things in my life I am thankful for. #1: Those extra 15 pounds. All I want to do is get rid of them; however, they do represent that I have ample food on my table. #2: Loud rock and roll music. Whether it's coming from a CD, an iPod or a You Tube video, the 1980s are making a full comeback in my house and this just means Justin Bieber won't be rattling the walls any time soon. #3: No traffic on the way to work. I miss talking with my coworkers, but telecommuting does have it advantages. #4: November sunburn. Spending a lazy Sunday afternoon on the beach is totally worth the Rudolph look I've been sporting around. #5: The 60 second decision. Nothing but outstanding care from the medical professionals at the Naval Hospital Pensacola who are technically one minute beyond my authorized drive time. #6: Wine bottles on the kitchen counter. My house and your house. Empty and half-full. Just reminders of what a great time I had with my friends solving the world's problems one cork at a time. Some things never change. #7: My next door neighbors. Without Barbara and Mark, our little beach block would be very lonely. #8: An overscheduled teenager. Swim meets. Science Olympiad. Awards Ceremonies. Sure beats meeting with a parole #9: Highway 98. I no longer to visit with my family. Highway 98, no matter which direction I travel, always leads me to my clan. It's good to be home. Until next time, have a Happy Thanksgiving and remember to count your blessings. Before you gobble, gobble, gobble on Thanksgiving Day, you can gallop a few miles along the scenic Pensacola Beach 5K run course. The Pensacola Beach Turkey Trot takes off from Casino Beach in front of Crabs, Thursday, November 22 at 8:30 a.m. Both runners and walkers are welcome to compete. The registration fee is $30 until November 15 and goes race time. The Turkey Trot hosted more than 350 runners last year and we anticipate to have over 400 runners this year, said Director. The run is a great way to get some exercise before overindulging in Thanksgiving dinner. It also is an opportunity to help the community. A portion of the race proceeds will be donated to WEARTVs Communities Caring at Christmas. Athletes are asked to bring an unused, unwrapped toy for the toy drive and start the season of giving by donating to children less fortunate. After the run, all participants are invited to enjoy beer, mimosas and a delicious runners breakfast at the Pavillion on the Gulf Side hosted by the walk.

It was then, that the Krewe of Wrecks sign up and Halloween party officially started. The Witches of Beachwick, the Coven, the what-ever they called themselves this year were hauntingly lovely in midnight black with spiders, rhinestones and mischievous smiles. Kathi Lewis, Paulette Provost, Lila Cox, Ella Hess and Deb Friedman cast the spell. Dozens of Mardi Gras faithful showed up, signed up and ate up at the first Wrecks meeting. Super Mario and a lampshade were bested by a Black Widow and the Fly she had in her web. Wrecks First Mate Bobbi Cunningham was stunning in her red, satin witches costume. Go girl! In a moment of rare seriousness, Melanie Waite on behalf of the Krewe, announced that a donation to the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Center will be made in memory of Jane Waters, founding Wreck. The Grand Costume Ball theme is being chosen in a different way according to Running Around Wreck Jeff Goudey. The krewe members will submit ideas and the Board will pick one. Hope it suits me. The Wrecks are having a Mardi Gras Faire type theme for the membership meeting Monday, December 17 at Paradise. Vendors will be allowed to set up from 3 to 7 p.m. Twenty-five bucks, and you must register with Jayne Drees (email@example.com) in advance. The Krewe of Christmas has kidnapped the Bananimals. They promise to return them to the Sandbar deck on December 4 if the of ransom of toys for kids, holiday gifts for seniors and a partridge in a pear tree are met. Kidnappers have sent Gena Raymon, Carlette Howell and Karen Cook to secure the items. More on their progress later. Mario Roberts is the Master of the Ball. Dont ask me. Thats his official Krewe of St. Patrick title. The MB announced the January 25 Shamrock-N-Roll Ball theme is Clash of the Tartans. Those Saint Pats are a clever clan. Tickets are on sale to the krewe, and then become available to the public. Stay tuned. Mardi Gras on the Island etiquette: Roberts Rules of Order are traded for Bobs Beer Can-Can during krewe meetings. When asked to vote, raise your beer or beverage up in the air to signify your agreement. To vote nay, shake your head vigorously. No one will notice.

Expect the same incredible quality food delivered in less time. DOG FRIENDLY DECK! MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL $2 DRAFT Tues: Open Mic Night Thurs : Movie Madness Beer Mug Club $1 refills all the time!The quality of life for Pensacola Beach residents should not be threatened by Mother Nature nor Cupid according to the thirty leaseholders who attended the Town Hall Meeting, Monday, November 5. The message was clear. Hurricane evacuations and noise from beach wedding parties need to be handled differently. The gathering was hosted by the Beachs County Commissioner Grover Robinson, IV, at the Santa Rosa Island Authority Boardroom. Commissioner Robinson addressed the residents most pressing concerns which revolved around hurricane evacuation and communication, sensitive environmental restoration, wildlife protection and noise ordinance updates. Hurricane Communication Commissioner Robinson has already cured the communication lapses and accuracy of the announcements with the Countys emergency operations and public information staff. During Hurricane Isaac we could have been clearer in our message. I apologize, said Robinson. Our evacuation decisions were based on the storm that we thought we might get. Thank goodness, it turned west. John Dosh, Escambia County Emergency Operations manager, explained the process that brings about a local state of emergency uses predictions from the National Weather Service in Mobile in assessing the storm track and evacuation determination. Listen to what we are saying during these events, said Robinson. We want you to be safe, but even after we issue an evacuation order, we are not pulling you out of your house at gun point. You can stay, but be warned that we may not be able to protect you, assist you or supply services to you for many days after a storm. Robinson added that the County will do a better job of cross messaging with the agencies such as Emerald Coast Utilities Authority and the Escambia the Beach Bridge can be closed by the Sheriff with sustained winds of 40 to 45 miles per hour, but residents will always be allowed to exit the beach. No one will be allowed to drive onto the island after that closure is declared. The determination to discontinue water and sewer services is point when storm surge is predicted to reach 6 feet, reported Robinson. This is to protect the equipment used on the island. The storm surge from Isaac reached 4.2 feet. Kathleen Castro said that the media did not always get the most current information to the public. The best information is coming from our office, said Castro. I encourage you to sign up to receive information directly from Escambia County. You can go on our website to receive email, texts or Twitter alerts directly from Escambia County. Oil Spill Monies Commissioner Robinson updated the attendees about RESTORE Act and National Resources Damage Assessment funds being used in Escambia County. The funding is a result of the BP oil Robinson noted he has been very active at the local, state and national level in securing the funds for Escambia County. There are different pots of money dedicated to environmental and round of NRDA funding, the Beach received a dune restoration and sand fencing project, administered by the State of Florida. After the election, Robinson expects to see the RESTORE Act funding settled. He announced that Escambia County will form a committee to advise the Commission on the potential uses and projects for the RESTORE Act funds that will come to Escambia County. He suggested that Committee take at least six months to formulate a plan and gather public input. There will be additional money for Escambia County, said Robinson. Escambia Countys barrier islands received most of the impact, so I am advocating that the District 4 representative on the local RESTORE committee be from Pensacola Beach. Keith Wilkins, Escambia County Director of Communities and Environment, spoke about the projects which are funded to compensate the area for environmental damage or loss of use. They included the turtle lighting projects along Via de Luna, Casino Beach and Fort Pickens Road, bird nesting site restoration, and possibility of using surplus funds to elevate dune walkovers on the Beach. He encouraged citizens to attend the NRDA workshop Tuesday, November 13 at 6 p.m. at the Pensacola. Beach resident Dan Smith requested that the private dune walkovers, which are being overtaken by sand because of dune restoration efforts, be considered for renovation along with public walkovers. Robinson will make the request. Santa Rosa Island Authority Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio is encouraged by the increasing dune heights. Growing dunes. This is a good problem to have, said Ghio. Signs to keep people from trampling the sensitive dunes are being installed as part of the current NRDA project. Sand continued to be a topic for discussion. The need for renourishing north and south shores of the island is being addressed. Permits are being secured and funding may be sourced from FEMA, NDRA or others. Beach resident Tom Almon pointed out the irony of the LaFitte Cove homeowners paying annually to dredge sand from the Cove, and have it hauled off the island, while the SRIA is purchasing sand to bring to the island. We all agree that it makes sense to keep this island sand on the island, said Commissioner Robinson. It takes a budget item of $60,000 annually to cure the Barring the budget crisis that the County faced this year, I would like to make this happen. Its a function of budget. Paolo Ghio updated the residents on the Quietwater Beach renourishment. The permits are in hand, the redirection of a sewer line and 20,000 cubic yards of sand will be installed by the end of November. Noises Too Loud Residents became quite vocal when it came to the discussion of the noise and safety concerns created by large parties hosted at rental homes along Ariola Drive. Beach resident Jim Leslie requested that Commissioner Robinson consider including a outdoors in the residential areas. We have large rental homes being used a commercial businesses hosting weekly weddings and receptions, said Leslie. Its noisy. The parking is an issue. Pensacola Beach is turning into a free-for-all based on what will bring money and tourists. It is an epidemic. Long time Beach resident Karen Holland agreed and says the time is now to stop this before more homes are built with large groups. Ariola Drive resident Carol Ascherfeld told Robinson that she prefers a common sense approach to allow deputies to merely listen to the noise to determine if it is detrimental. She is circulating a petition asking for the ordinance to be re-written to better protect the residents. The current Noise Ordinance in Escambia County was struck down by the courts and is currently being reviewed by the Escambia County attorney. Robinson says the noise ordinance is a work in progress and recognizes the safety issues that are created by these large gatherattend the Town Hall Meeting, but Robinson will discuss the issues with them. Turtles And Tail Waggers Two additional ordinances were discussed, both involving animals. A proposed lighting ordinance to protect wildlife is being drafted. Commissioner Robinson agreed that new construction should comply with turtle friendly lighting but it was not a good time to burden businesses with line to comply plus the possibility of matching grants should be considered. Beach resident and architect Scott Holland insists that there are both federal and state lighting rules in place that should have been met. Violators should come into compliance without a time extension or grant funding. The ordinance is scheduled to come before the County Commission Thursday, January 17. In order for a dog park to be allowed on Pensacola Beach, the Escambia County ordinance prohibiting dogs on the beach would have to be amended. Residents at the meeting were not in favor of allowing dogs on the proposed areas of the beach, due to sanitary and safety concerns. Dan Smith said, There are dogs on the beach right now. More so in the winter. I would like to see the current ordinance enforced. Commissioner Robinson concluded the meeting by reminding the group that Santa Rosa Island is Escambia Countys largest public park. The Santa Rosa Island Authority is in charge of the island and the County tries to support the Authority, especially now that taxes are being collected. We are blessed to be here, he said. Your input is valuable. Thank you for coming tonight. Robinson asked Beach resiwith their concerns. He can be reached at 850-595-4940.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Instead of fretting over a cutting remark by a co-worker, chalk it up to an outburst of envy of your wellrespected status among both your colleagues and superiors. BORN THIS WEEK: You instinctively know when to be serious and when to be humorous -attributes everyone finds endearing. My Mom always kept a tidy house, and my sisters followed suit. But for some strange reason that tidy gene was not passed on to me. If I called myself the Clutter Queen that would be an understatement. The more appropriate moniker would be Chaos Queen. It would have helped if my husband, Ralph liked things in their place; but no, he is the Chaos King. We have both watched in horror and fascination the hoarder programs on The Learning Channel. If a screw comes loose in our brains, that could be us. What makes me really mad is that Ralph thinks its just me and my chaos. In 24 years of knowing him, I have never see Ralph clean up very much. Good grief if I sweep up his sawdust in the gaI have to listen to, that was my favorite sawdust. Really, that was your FAVORITE sawdust; and what were you planning on doing with that sawdust? No response came back until one day he belted out, Its for our neighbor Allen. He uses it for his garden. Well thats different. I certainly cant blame Ralph for my chaotic lifestyle. The other day I was trying to clean and also organize. Now I am very good at cleaning; I am also very good at organizing. But it is dangerous for me to mix the two. The problem I have is I get focused on whatever it is I am organizing. If its books, I want to read them. If its CDs, I want to listen to them. If its toys, I want to play with them. (all at the same time utter chaos bad strategy) But I have to do something with all this stuff So I shove it in cabinets and bookshelves, hang it from rafters and walls in organized chaos. At least this approach enables me to clean. I had no idea how much dust and dirt could accumulate in a house. How much you ask? So much I now have 3 brooms. Why 3 brooms? Because I am constantly losing them in the black hole of organized chaos! Maybe I could become an apprentice like Mickey Mouse in Fantasia oh, but wait he created chaos. Never mind! I think I will just enjoy this life as Chaos Queen and let the dust fall where it may. Kowabunga Breakfast with Saturday, Dec 8 at 8 a.m. Surf Burger
