The phone has stopped ringing every minute of the day. The music has faded away. Only the memory lingers I have danced and I have sung and I have laughed these last few days of the Mardi Gras. And I agonized and fretted and worried and worked. I have badgered friends and businesses and civic organizations for help. I have bought beads and glitter and paint. I have talked on mics and I have talked in crowds and I have talked to individuals. My throat rebels, but my spirit stands tall. For if I ever think I would like to wallow in self pity when things go wrong or people complain or timing gets off during our three day celebration, it doesnt take much to kick the feeling. Consider the thrill of looking out over 250 Wrecks at the Champagne Breakfast and seeing a sea of smiling, happy faces. Not one, mind you, not one miserable person sits in that big room. And as the days go on, I see the faces of others faces that I will probably never see again. I see their delight at getting a free red beans and rice luncheon. I see their glee when they catch a trinket at the parade. I see disabled guests from the Rehab Center enjoying what the Wrecks have to give. And I see the American Cancer Society and the Ronald McDonald House and Favor House all just a little bit better off because the Krewe of Wrecks exists. Is there room at the top for self pity? No. There is only room for gratitude. And if I am to be the chairman of anything ever, please let it be the Krewe of Wreckswhere every minute I put into it, comes back to me a thousandfold in smiles, in laughter, in love, in unity, in compassion. I am grateful to all of you for these gifts. Gulf Breeze Arts, Inc. and the City of Gulf Breeze, present the nineteenth annual Gulf Breeze Celebrate the Arts, March 9-10.

He gave the full board of the Santa Rosa Island Authority updates at their February 13 meeting. The long road to additional landscaping along Beach avenues is nearing an end. Mooneyham noted that contractors will be bidding on the work this week. The renovations to the toll facility will come in two phases. The first phase is unimpressive, said Mooneyham. It is mostly prep work for asphalt and roadway improvements, except for the prototype lighted crosswalk that will be created. A crosswalk with colorful, textured asphalt will be installed from the causeway across to Shaggys. Pedestrians will activate lights which are embedded in the asphalt crossing area as well as a sign. We are going to try it to see how it works, said Mooneyham. If it goes well, we intend to put more in the core and maybe even one by the school. Toll facility upgrades to software, hardware, and a possible Sunpass type transponder are included in the second phase. Drivers will also see a connecting access road from Quietwater to the Grand Marlin, improvements to the Quietwater parking lot, widening of Pensacola Beach Boulevard and stormwater improvements all slated to begin in the fall. A program to continue northside beach renourishment is being championed by Commissioner Grover Robinson, according to Mooneyham. The program would allow Escambia County to dredge sand from the often sandchoked LaFitte Cove to replenish leaseholders have been paying to have the sand dredged after which it is hauled off the island. The SRIA has been purchasing sand from other sources. The Board of County Commissioners will discuss the program in April. tune the details. Mooneyham said there is a list of miscellaneous repair issues that will be completed soon. On the top of the list is the bike path. A discussion followed about turtle friendly lighting at the Casino Beach parking lot to which Mooneyham added that $500,000 has been set aside for that project. As soon as the regulatory agencies agree on an the project will move forward. Executive Director Buck Lee spoke on two upcoming projects. He will bring a report on the neighborhood streets condition and repair cost estimates to the February 27 SRIA Committee meetings. Lee also presented a report from SRIA Architect John Tice about renovating the Visitors Information Center. Tices report concludes that a modest addition of 600 square feet would trigger a need to bring the Center up to current building codes and increase the parking allotment. The cost of the renovation might approach the cost of a new building. In the Pensacola Beach Master Plan, the Visitors Center was to be relocated. Tice recommended cial variables into consideration. The report noted that if moved, future expansion options can be strategically incorporated into the site plan. Board Member Tammy Bohannon could see the value in considering this. If we build a new VIC in a new location, could we consider a performance area or additional retail space with it? After preliminary discusMember Dave Pavlock made a motion to have staff bring a report to include recommendations on size, costs, possible added retail areas, for a new Visitors Information Center in the Casino Beach parking lot. Pavlock also noted that the building would be elevated so as not to decrease parking capacity. The motion passed unanimously. In his Executive Directors report, Lee introduced Courtney Fell as a new SRIA staff member, and announced he would be bringing a grant idea to the Board to be funded through the second round of Gulf Tourism Seafood and Promotion Funding. Lee also assured the Board that if the Blue Angels Air Show was cancelled by federal budget cuts that the show could go on. The Blue Angels will not be grounded, and they will still practice in the skies over Pensacola Beach, said Lee. I would propose that the SRIA come up with $100,000 and seek sponthe show date. This is a day that is of critical importance to our businesses and the community at large. Engineer Mike Langston reported that the recent storm damage to scaffolding at the water tank project just south of the toll facility will not stall the progress. The tank will be complete in April. They will be seeking input for changing the mural design prior to painting the new tank. Roller hockey players approached the board during the Visitors Forum to request the skating surface at Cowley Park be repaired, benches and water fountains be re-installed and lighting be funded. Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio said the resurfacing and striping project has already been assigned to a contractor, so that is no longer an issue. Bill Crawford, 48, from Gulf Breeze, made the requests on behalf of about 50 players who range in age from 10 to 67-years-old. The benches and water fountains were demolished by Ivan, said Crawford. There are about 50 of us out there, and spectators show up, too. The seating and water would be appreciated. Lighting would create additional time for use, since some players work during the day. The motion to replace the water fountains and benches as soon as possible, was approved unanimously. Pavlock requested that staff look at the cost to install and maintain lights during the next budget process. The Committees meet Wednesday, February 27 at 5 p.m. The meetings are open to the public.

Seated at the head table are Krewe of Wrecks First Mates Denise Keever, left, who reigned in 1981,and Molly McGuire, 1984. Krewe of Coma King Carl Zemenick and Queen Chrissy Cook were crowned as the royalty on Fat Tuesday at the Sandshaker. Having survived Mardi Gras, I am once again a contestant in the seasonal game of Where the heck is my stuff? Funny how you have everything one minute, then poof, something disappears! The Krewe of Wrecks Ball was tons of fun. I absolutely loved the theme of Storybook Characters and the amount of participation this year was tremendous. Several of the Nereids donned their Little Red Riding Hood attire complete with basket. Past Nereid King Pearce Traer was Grandma. During the costume contest, Grandma transformed into the Big Bad Wolf! Very clever Mermaids and, bevery persuasive. There were also Smurfs monkey (Judy LOignon), Sleeping Beauties and their Prince Charmings played by Christine and Lonnie Hewerdine along with Shaker Queen Lisa and Buzz Busby, Fairy Godmothers and so many more. Little Bo Peep (Jayne Drees Redmond) had her sheep and never lost them. On to the Queens Dinner at Flounders. There were so many Queens that some Royalty had to sit at the bar. 1984 Wrecks First Mate Molly McGuire, who owns Flounders, attended again this year and offered a royal apology to those without tables. (Its not her fault, theres only so much space.) Its always such a privilege to have her with us. There were so many Queens it took Melanie Waite nearly two hours to introduce everyone. Big thanks to the entire staff of Flounders for taking care of such a huge group so well. And when they give you a take-home box, they really mean it. Jayne Drees could not locate hers when she got home. We searched top. Oh yes, the box traveled on top of her car from Flounders to Sabine Sandbar, then to the Nereids Krewe Den and over to my house on Largo. It had also rained, but the box was completely undamaged with only a few drops of water on top. Now that, my friends, is a real To Go box! The only bad part of the evening was caused by the popularity, combined with the large area of parking spaces lost because of work being done in Flounders parking lot. One of our Queens, Sandy Watkins, made the mistake of parking in a non-designated parking space. A tow truck arrived to remove her vehicle. That was a $50 lesson. The Wrecks mantra, It Never Rains on a Wrecks Parade remains true, although Im sure thats not a big surprise to the locals. But, boy did the skies open immediately after the festivities and Award Ceremony at the Pavilion. rected to Ft. Pickens Rd. although there should have been space enough for us in the subrectly in front of us was stopped, so we grabbed our bags and scheduled to perform at the Pavilion. All of us were able to exit and King Nasty John Thomas. They were approached by a Deputy and told that they would go all the way to Ft. Pickens and straight back to Krewe Den. I would have done the same. But it was very disappointing missing not only our King but one of our best dancers. Im just pointing out a few areas of concern this year that might need more attention next year. But other than these few areas, it was one of the greatest Mardi Gras Seasons. I want to commend all of you who make the magic happen. Youve done it again. Congratulations to the Coma Royalty, Queen Chrissy Cook and King Carl Zemenick. Since our Coma Royalty doesnt get crowned until Fat Tuesday, which is the end of the season, I thought it appropriate to share this recipe from Queen Chrissy. Its so delicious and makes such a beautiful presentation youll want to cook it all year. So, lets cook Queen Chrissys Chicken & Broccoli Ring 2 pkgs. reduced fat refrigerated crescent rolls 2 cups chopped chicken 1 cups chopped fresh broccoli 1 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese cup diced yellow bell peppers (or red) together) 2 large garlic gloves pressed or minced Following ingredients to taste: Sea salt Fresh ground pepper Fresh chopped dill Fresh chopped oregano Fresh chopped parsley Fresh chopped green onion, yellow onion or 1 tbsp. dehydrated minced onion Egg white Slivered almonds Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll crescent rolls and separate into triangles. Using a pizza pan, arrange in a circle with wide ends slightly overlapping in the center and points outward leaving an opening in the center. In mixing bowl combine all ingredients except egg white and slivered almonds. Mix well adding more mayo if a circle. Bring the points of the under dough at center to form a ring. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with almonds. Bake 25 30 minutes until deep golden brown. (Queen Chrissy says you cut recipe in half to serve a smaller number of people. I prefer to double it myself.) Enjoy and dont forget to share, See ya in the kitchen.

A: As Spring approaches you should put a reminder on your calendar to include an inspection of your computer when starting your spring cleaning. To prolong the life of your computer, make it part of your annual spring cleanup. In some cases, it would be best to check your computer for dust problems at least a couple of times each year. Dust is a big problem for computers, especially if the computer is on the floor. cause of overheating, and ultimately, failure of computer equipment. Even though the surrounding area may not appear to be very dusty, the dust particles are continuously being sucked into the computer by the internal fans. If there are family pets around the computers, the problem is more severe. The cooling fans in the computer act like a vacuum system, pulling dust, fibers, and pet hair from surrounding areas. Dust and hair collect on the external vents and on the internal fans, sometimes completely blocking been shutting down while you are using it, overheating might be the cause. Notebook computers can be severely affected. Blocked air heating and failure of computer to check for dust in notebook computers than it is to check a desktop computer. Quite a bit of disassembly may be required to gain access to the fan. That task is not something that should be attempted unless you have experience with notebook disassembly. Instead, call a technician. To reduce the risk of overheating, dont place laptops on any surface made of fabric, including beds and sofas, or your lap unless using a lap board. You will know that your computer is too hot if you feel the heat on the bottom of the laptop or in the keyboard. If the bottom of the computer gets very hot, or if you can feel heat around the keyboard, or if the computer shuts itself off, you may have a severe dust blockage that needs immediate attention. It is relatively easy to check your desktop or tower computer for dust. Look for dust blockages around the openings on the sides and back of the computer. If the ventilation openings on the sides or back of your computer are dusty, you can expect to see the same thing happening inside the computer. If your computers cover has never been removed, it might be a good idea to take a look inside. With the desktop computer, the fans are easily accessible by removing one of the side covers of the computer. Getting a look at the inside of the computer is simply a matter of removing a couple of screws, usually thumbscrews, that keep the cover in place. Unplug the computer from its electrical source before you go any further. Once inside the computer, look at the fans to inspect them for dust blockages. A solid coating of dust in the fans will cause severe overheating and will shorten the life of the computer. You can try to remove the dust with a vacuum or can of compressed air. Get ready for a cloud of dust if you use matted, you make have to gently loosen it with a small brush. Be careful if you use a vacuum cleaner to get dust and hair out of your computer. Some important little parts might get detached from the main circuit board and wind up in your vacuum cleaner. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

The end of the month brings good news in the workplace, thanks to all the efforts you've made to get your projects off the ground and running. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Don't let yourself be cowed into thinking you're not up to the challenge you've taken on. Keep reinforcing your selfconfidence, and no one and nothing can stop you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Positive responses to a recent workplace move should give you added assurance that you're on the right track. Celebrate the good news with family and/or friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) There's still a little emotional fuzziness you have to work through before you can feel really certain about your recent decisions. But you're on the right track. Stay with it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You're tempted by an offer that seems close to what you've been looking for. But before you pounce on it, see if you can coax out some added perks to sweeten the deal. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your efforts to settle a volatile situation should prove successful. Now could be a good time to analyze what might have created the problem in the first place. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A once-close associate re-emerges with news that could cause you to reconsider a recent decision. But don't make a move before consulting a trusted adviser. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might feel pressured to reveal a colleague's secret. But you can rely on your strong Scorpion sense of rectitude to help you continue to do the right thing. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) That pesky situation is still creating problems. But you are moving ahead with it, and soon it should be successfully resolved in your favor. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A spate of indecision leaves you susceptible to doubt. But you'll soon regain your emotional sure-footedness and be back leading the way, as usual. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Love rules the week with new romances favored for single Aquarians looking for partners. Cupid also targets renewed commitment for wedded Water Bearers. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A surge of creativity keeps you happily busy through the week. But leave some quiet time to share with loved ones. Some long-awaited news finally comes through.
