It was a Friday afternoon. The sun was out and the beach bums were out…and the :+ ) The Islander was out. Looking at that four page edition, printed on bond $$"'$+)"* :$'! newspaperwoman came out in me. What a funky little paper, I thought to myself. But even then, I rushed in where even fools fear to tread, let alone angels. I noticed a couple of !$$$ "*"!, stone in front of Nero’s, so I approached them and in my inimitable cheery manner asked, “Would you like an Islander ?” One of the guys raised his head and leered at me [maybe it was Capt. Buzz for all I know now. I knew no one on the island at that time!] The other guy continued to stare at a bikini clad girl slinking along the street. One of the curb sitters took the tiny newspaper from my hand and held it off as if it were some!)"*" M:"($ if it were last week’s garbage. He looked at it, grinned wickedly, and remarked, “Don’t you know Beach people can’t read?” He handed it back to me, '!) !)"*$:!) eyes, and fell asleep. Then and there. It’s not going to be easy, I muttered to myself as I nonetheless delivered a few hundred )! Islander to any place that would allow it inside. The second issue was not so bad. We had doubled everything…moved along to eight pages and ten ads. The front page featured a picture of the Sugar Bowl dune and John Carter, the new Exalted Ruler of the Elk’s Lodge. A story headlined “EggsN$+3'),'! $""$ Egg Drop competition and still another announced Margaret Lloyd as the president of the Leaseholders and Residents Associaion. And after the initial shock of discovering the Island did, in fact, now have a newspaper, the leaseholders began to nod their heads in approval. If I were to say it’s been an uphill battle, you could consider “uphill” as something resembling the Matterhorn or Mt. Everest…and maybe, it’s true that I hung in there when the tough went out to play in the surf, simply because the challenge was there. I reasoned that Pensacola Beach residents deserved media coverage of their very own. So, after a couple of years, The Islander not only gained acceptance, but it was a welcome sight to island people every other Tuesday, summer and winter. Who knew what infamous reports would be in “People” and eventually The Islander grew in stature and approached some sort of dignity as it touched on some of the more serious aspects of beach living…like beach cruisers, tricycle races, rock musicians, dart parties, and miscellaneous meetings. And later, it became a source of information on the SRIA, college news, entertainments … and the advertising copy zoomed. The Islander even established such policies as not reporting tragedies. Let the burning houses, crumbling car wrecks, drug busts, exploding boats fall into the pages of neighboring news media. As a twice monthly publication, we hardly “scooped” anyone, so we never minded breaking the rules of good newspapering such as printing something which could have happened months ago. Our way of writing and publishing F '!($+)"! island. And The Islander grew. There have been scores of happy moments in the lifetime of The Islander …like the time Larry Dukes jumped on top of a pool table to read “the paper” under the only good light in Dirty Joe’s. I have wandered in and out of my distribution points on many pitch dark and rainy Tuesdays, only to see an aura of sunshine when Wanda Coggins or Sarah at HoJo’s would call out, “Here’s The Islander ,” and those within hearing range would F -!"'-*$ copy…or when I see tourists, with pencil in hand, marking out places to go on the island and mainland. And, the last four years have been a love-hate relationship for me and my newspaper. Often enough, I hated getting all the material together to produce this publication, and then each time it rolled off the press in Crestview, a wave of pure love F '':&M()!!)) (,*)" !+$6 We’ve made lots of mistakes, and no one has complained much. Somehow, the )$"'-$"' "'! good in the paper, and promptly tell me about it. I am eternally grateful for the acceptance…the warm and loving acceptance of the beach’s newspaper. In the :+ '))$)"!$) in 1979 I wrote, “ The Islander is a special newspaper for special people. It was born in the sun and will live in the sun…When we consider the beauty of our surroundings and the colorful group of people who will become our readers, we think The Islander may, in fact, be the most special newspaper in the world. We hope you will agree.” You did agree…and bless you all. I love you! !"#$%&'*'+/5'666* 7#*&*!+88#;< #+##8"%*8#*=*+>@AD J!+&&>#;'!88'%8>& ##*"#;<8&'&&/K6'666*7#"

Like it’s etched in the steel of his sword, venerable Knight of the Trivia Roundtable Morrie Drees, con'"+"!+$!$! Pensacola Beach Woman’s Club was formed, 1954. His wife Mary was a member from 1979 until her death in 2011. The good knight has been stalwart in his support of the Club, offering his help whenever needed. He’s been known to serve an entire Thanksgiving dinner to the gals. And, not to be outdone, the Queen of Wrong Answers C$""-F (!& puter with a glass of wine in her hand to send the founding year of the Woman’s Club. Queen Jo knows and the Trivia Master is unsettled at having to seat her at the Roundtable. Who will rule the kingdom of the Wrongly Remembered and Incorrect? Jersey Girl Gwen Foster may sub in for Queen Jo. She thought the Woman’s Club started in 1973. By then, they were ruling the island, and had constructed a cinder block building to serve the community. The gals eventually donated this to the Beach Church with the caveat that it continue to serve the Beach and be available for the Club’s monthly meetings. Bob Dority sends his correct answer in the subject line of a text message to the Trivia Master. This time of year Big Bob’s busy at work so time is of the essence. The time was right and the year was indeed 1954. Former President of the Woman’s Club Jane McGrath sent 1954 as her answer and remarked, “It wouldn’t do to get this one wrong!” Correct on both counts, Jane. A parade of correct answers came to the TM from the lovelies who make up the Club. Mary Ann Claus is a relatively new member whose tenure is only three years long, but she knew the answer, as did her colleague Kathy Christoff. Kathy is putting the saboteur who hid her copy of Island Times on notice that action will not be tolerated. It slowed her answer and kept her shirtless.

PAGE Island Times March 19, 2013 The Santa Rosa Island Authority Board continued to support eco-tourism efforts on Pensacola Beach with a unanimous vote to reuest an additional 500,000 from BP through a grant program. The action came at the March 13 Full Board meeting. The Eco Trail initiative was funded by a 500,000 Gulf Tourism and Seafood Promotion Fund grant in 2012. The second reuest would augment the program and extend the marketing campaign to include television exposure. Currently, signs and information materials are being developed for the Eco Trail program. An interactive component will be initiated in conjunction with an online guide for travelers to learn about the island’s natural inhabitants. The Board has targeted installation and launch dates in May. “I like this project. It’s a good direction for us to go,” said Board Member Ed Guernsey. “These tourists travel even in the off season.” After hearing a presentation by Rod Milligan, whose company ET Promotions organizes hot rod shows, the Board approved a second grant application for BP funds to support a cruising the coast type event in late October. The reuest for 225,000 will be made by the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the SRIA. Milligan produces the automotive speciality events at Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Gulfport, Mississippi and Panama City Beach. “We have a documented economic impact of 20 million at the Gulfport show,” said Milligan. “We cross promote your event at our other shows. You can expect #$$+:"63 This round of the Fund will allocate 12.7 million. The grant applications are due on March 29. iva Florida banners will line the core area avenues, according to SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee. The year long celebration of the founding of Florida includes a statewide tourism program and a visit from Spanish dignitaries in May. Lee also reported that he con)""$>$:+)$ regarding the Blue Angels Air 8!(67!$"):'") cation that the status has changed. In the event the Navy cancels the show, Lee has preliminary commitments from Rod Ladner at Shaggy’s and other majors sponsors to pay for the performance. Indicators that the Island’s economy is healthy are evidenced by increased revenues and residential construction. The Developmental Service Director Paolo Ghio’s report indicated that three new home construction projects have been approved along with a renovation and a seawall. Baskerville Donovan Engineer Mike Langston updated the board on the toll plaza lane improvement project. “The bids are due in about two weeks. You should see some activity there within the next 30 days,” said Langston. The ia de Luna Landscaping program which is being orchestrated in its entirety by Escambia County has an end date of Winter 2013. pgrades to sewer relocation in preparation for beach renourishment has been completed. The parking area is being re-paved. Board Member Dave Pavlock is anxious to see project moving forward. “I see the beach renourishment project is getting close,” said Pavlock. “I am looking foward to seeing them dig a hole in the median to plant a tree.” The SRIA Committees will meet Wednesday, March 20 at 5 p.m. in the boardroom.

Especially one winding through nearly untouched nature while ending in a beauty and peace that still retains all the comforts of home! Well that’s the perfect description of “GirlGrass,” an event created by Jayne Drees Redman, the reigning Queen Shugah of the Wooly Booger Social Club. It all happens at the Bunker Therapeutic Lodge and Retreat Resort owned by Jayne and her husband Johnny.

It was a great weekend, and then I returned to Paradise rested and ready for the next party. I recently came upon a delightfully fresh new salad dressing with an even more interesting story. Steve Picker is a transplanted Islander whose roots originated in Jefferson City, Missouri. It seems he fell instantly in love with Paradise and well, we all know what happens once you get sand between your toes! I met Steve and heard his story about his beloved Grandmother Dorothy whose dream came true partly because of her dedication but mostly through the love of her extraordinary grandson. Grandma Dorothy lived in Freeburg, Missouri. She spent 23 years attempting to re-create her Grandmother’s special salad dressing trying unsuccessfully to match the dabs and pinches made by the larger hands of her $"'&!6?" "$+ alizing the difference, Grandma B!+ "$+'! recipe in 1957 after experimenting with the use of measuring spoons. She enjoyed local success by providing it for church socials and serving it in a restaurant where she was employed. She very wisely mixed it at home to protect her recipe and in the mid 1960s tried to market her dressing in local grocery stores without success. Nobody knew what to do. The family was celebrating Grandma Dorothy’s birthday in 1999 when her son-in-law, Steve’s father, made a suggestion that they try to market her dressing. Grandson Steve has a lot more of his Grandmother’s moxie Southern for persistence and determination than even !-"($"'! Grandma’s Cool esty Dressing hit grocery store shelves on January 10, 2000. Steve feels privileged to have been able to join his Grandmother in such a grand adventure. He says it changed her life. She became a local celebrity. Grandma Dorothy also appeared in parades she ('!$: )*!)" community and spoke to groups urging everyone to “never give up a dream” as she was living proof. nfortunately, Grandma Dorothy’s dream ended for her in June of 200 but it had indeed come true. After all, she said it ,1)*!6I$"D "'$ better bunch of taste testers anywhere. It was unanimously declared delicious!

It is a time of Easter Egg hunts and new Easter clothes, however, like so many things it is easy to forget what this week is all about. It is a time to think about how God works in our lives, along with special activities to help us think about Jesus death and resurrection. Over the course of the Lenten and Easter season, we are remembering the lowest points of sin and the highest peaks of what God has done for us through Jesus.

Oh, I had vacationed many times with my family along the Gulf Coast of Florida during the summer, but it was that one week spent at Sabine Yacht and Racuet Club in the spring of 197 that would change my life forever. We had come over from New Orleans as a family and were the uintessential tourists. We swam even though the water was way too cold. We sunbathed even though the winds were brisk. We collected shells and whole sand dollars. We shopped for t-shirts that memorialized this visit. We supported the tourist attractions, no matter the cost or the level of tackiness. By the time we packed up the station wagon to head back to New Orleans, I was sunburned and had spent every last penny of my allowance. At the age of 13, I was determined to never let Pensacola Beach fade from my memories. As I unpacked, I neatly placed my shells on the window sills of my bedroom that had a view of St. Charles Avenue. That historic street, lined with its lush green trees and its beloved streetcars, was a view that I no longer had any interest in. I poured a small bag of Pensacola Beach sand in a keepsake box as if it were fairy dust hoping someday it would magically transport me back to the Beach. And it did. By August of that same year, I would never be a tourist again on Pensacola Beach as we made the move from Magnolia trees to sea oats, from streetcars to sailboats, from green grass to white sand, from waves of traffic to the waves of the Gulf of Mexico. What never occurred to me is that someday I would depart Pensacola Beach and I would live in various locations such as southern California, southern Maryland, and eastern North Carolina, But I did leave and now I am back after a 24 year hiatus. This time with my own family -the Colonel and the Kid -and now we are enjoying our inaugural Spring Break Staycation 2013. The Pensacola Beach Chambers website is bookmarked in our iPhones, right along with Island Times We have filled this weeks calendar with all sorts of activities from camping at Ft. Pickens to learning to paddleboard. It will be a new adventure every day. The stove is off. The cupboards are bare. The refrigerator is empty. My travel visa to the grocery stores in Gulf Breeze has temporarily been suspended. I guess you could say we are gearing up for our own Taste of the Beach. Bathing suits, beach towels, and sandals are plentiful. Sunscreen, sunglasses, hats, and bikes are at the ready. Who knows? We might even buy a t-shirt or a shell magnet for the bar fridge commemorating this event. Yes, allegedly with age comes experience and wisdom, but I can honestly say I knew it all at 13. There truly is no better place to be than on Pensacola Beach in the spring either as a resident or a tourist. ntil next time... iane Tsn, righ, as he irs in line ish her daugher ahne uchsinger ha birhda a a surrise ar hsed a The Islander unge, March 9 ahne as raised n Pensacla Beach and lives in Gul Breee ih her husband hris and hree children More than 60 years of Blue Angels history come to life with never-before-published historic photographs, landmark artifacts and insights you’ll only find in the Blue Angels archives, now available in a new book “Blue Angels: A Pictorial History.” The book is available in the Flight Deck Store at the National Naval Aviation Museum or in the online store at www.navalaviation.com.S A I N R

Q: “What is the Future for >,-.&O3 A: Right now there are more than a billion computers notebooks and desktops in use worldwide. The notebook’s share of the market is being sueezed by the rapid growth in sales of the tablet devices. Over the next 4 to 5 years, unless something unexpected develops, the number of tablets in use could also approach a billion units. The simplicity and convenience of the tablet devices is creating a large demand, even though they cannot currently do everything that a notebook computer can do. The fate of the notebook computer may depend on when the software development companies begin to convert their software so that it will work in computers not running Windows or Apple OS software. With the exception of Microsoft’s Surface tablet device, most tablets run some other proprietary system software. Essential software such as Quickbooks, Micro%',!! and programs that are based on complex data bases are primarily used in a Windows or Apple OS environment and operate on desktops and notebooks. That is because the software developers have a billion computers in their marketplace, which means more sales dollars. The tablets are gaining popularity in business environments because they are much easier to handle and share with others than a notebook, in addition to being easier to take on business trips. Those devices are not yet able to replace the notebook and desktop computers used in complex business environments, where multi-user business programs and company data often reside in data bases stored on centralized servers. With the pending demise of the CD player, the new notebook computers are eliminating the CD drive and are looking more like tablets. Those lightweight and slim units are called ultrabooks. Historically, prices for new devices have fallen steadily over time, so future pricing for new notebook and tablet technology may also be a big factor in who comes out ahead.

My life has changed I am becoming a farmer. Right now my Earthly garden consists of raspberry plants, horseradish, garlic and Herman. What’s a Herman? Well he is my avocado seed, and I named him. There was just something special about this guy, er, ah, I mean seed. He has a certain “Je ne sais uoi” if you know what I mean. He also has a root that keeps growing which means more fruit for me. I could never accomplish the thing with toothpicks and jabbing the avocado so I placed Herman on top of a popsicle maker. He fits uite nicely, and his root can feed into the water. My neighbor told me Herman needed food so I added some dirt to the water and placed him in the sunshine in the kitchen. Herman is thriving! But that’s not all that’s happening I was listening to a radio program about meteorites and looking for them on planet Earth. I don’t know what the big deal is because they are all over Mars. My friends and I have huge meteorites in our gardens in our home on the Red planet. Yes, you heard it right! We have glass domes over our property, but the soil there is really fertile for growing fruits and vegetables. Oh, that makes me an intergalactic farmer. But let’s think about this. Meteors and asteroids from space have hit both planets carrying the same minerals and organisms. Millions of years ago when Mars had a similar climate and atmosphere to Earth, it would have had some of the same vegetation. So it is not a far stretch of the imagination that there wasis life on Mars. Can you imagine if Curiosity could send back dirt to Earth from Mars? Wouldn’t that be something? Then we could grow fruits and vegetables in Martian soil on Earth. No telling what that might do for the vitamin, enzyme and mineral content of our food. Maybe some day-----who knows? That’s all for now from Galaxy Girl! ARIES March 21 to April 19 Congratulations, Lamb. This is the week to finish your project and then bask in your well-earned approval.
