Especially when the subject is litter on Pensacola Beach. We, who live here, and most of those who come to visit consider this strip of sand in the Gulf of Mexico an island paradise. Perhaps, the Beach needs remedial attention in several areas, but when we talk about convention centers or even additional landscaping, there’s not much the average Beach resident can do except adopt a hopeful attitude. But, there is one project which would enhance this Beach considerably, but it would require the combined efforts of residents, visitors and Santa Rosa Island Authority staff. We really need to have a clean up detail that never quits. If our neighbors cross the bridge and trash the Beach, then it will have to be up to us to clean it up. And, we will have to do it every day. Almost a year ago, I received a letter from Beth Damon who lives in Atlanta. She commented on a column I had written concerning the rundown business and residential structures on the Beach. “I join the author in her distress,” Beth wrote. “But not so much by the structures as by the GARBAGE. Four mornings in a row on my vacation, I picked up enough beer bottles, cans, hamburger bags, dirty plastic diapers, etc. to fill three of the Leave Only Your Footprints, Please bags, conveniently placed on the Beach. Much of the trash was thrown down within easy walking distance of the trash bags.” Beth went on to suggest that strong penalties for people caught littering should be imposed and enforced. I agree. However, in the meantime, until this happens, there must be a method of controlling the mess which blows around this beautiful island all the time. Every morning I drive along Via de "&'( &")<&'&) dened by the bottles and other debris which decorate the roadside. When I arrive, I take time to pick up trash at my business location. And there is always something to pick up. It’s the same in some neighborhoods. Fifty or more locals and guests jog and walk along Ariola Drive every day which is apparently a favorite area for litterers. At night, I often see a lady with a big plastic bag walking along $"%$#$!:".!&D#" in the sand along the street. And the next day, like magic, the junk is back again. So, the one single thing we can do to make and keep our Island beautiful is to pick up trash everybody’s trash wherever we encounter it. We need to urge the SRIA staff to care enough about the Island to pick up whatever they drop or whatever anyone drops near their stops as they throw the garbage bags on the truck. Beth from Atlanta brought up an interesting analogy, “If only the people who are up in arms about burning our flag would realize that our beaches and woods represent our country, too.” She truly believed that trashing the island was on the &'1&I &%+"$"%/ Should we let our visitors think we care so little for our beloved habitat that we let it stay littered? Should they have to pick up trash which is not their own while on vacation? I don’t think so. Each of us should be responsible for the areas around our homes and businesses. Although the once a year clean-ups which many people help with are commendable, they are not enough. The key is for us to maintain and love our Island constantly just as we would maintain and love any other thing we own. It is up to us to present a clean and shining face. It is not an insurmountable chore. We can do it. Perhaps, we should feel obligated to do it. We will just have to forget about trying to educate the clods who trash our Beach. All we have to do is convince ourselves that we must keep our own little corner of paradise neat and litter free. [ Editor’s Note: The SRIA no longer collects the residential garbage, and the maintenance staff currently executes a comprehensive clean up schedule daily.

TWO DOWN Fans of the Island Times Crossword puzzle have to wait no longer. Jane McGrath and Joanne Brooks are gamers. They like to play, so they sent a message to the editor to restore the Crossword puzzle. Now Jane and Joanne can solve the IT crossword, make the scene at the Beach Woman’s Club Game Day and send wrong answers to the IT Trivia question. Turn to page 7 and let the fun begin. NRED RESERVE Too much chopping, stirring and sauting takes a toll on a chef’s shoulder. So, Grand Marlin Chef Gregg has to get his shoulder in shape for the long days of summer. He’s not the only rehabbing beach chef. Joyce Brown of The Native Caf has her right arm in a sling. And, she says she’ll be a one armed cook until at least July. Heal up fast. TORNADO TOWN Marie Steele returned to the Beach in time to see Thomas Fitzgerald graduate from Gulf Breeze High School. She’s been working in Tornado Alley doing her insurance adjusting job. AOY MATEYS The newest skippers at the Pensacola Beach Yacht Club are George and Desneige Atteberry of Pensacola Beach. Ad Exec Trudy Romjue is a returning member at the Best Little Yacht Club on the Gulf. The Club hosts a Patriots Day Regatta, June 29 with a race, a gourmet dinner, specialty t-shirt and over-the-top awards ceremony. AM G WORK ARD Courtney and Jim Winstead traveled to see son James receive his MBA from the University of Southern California. James earned the degree carrying a full time course load while he worked full-time as a manager of marketing and analysis for Guthy Renker. James, a 1999 Gulf Breeze High grad, lives in Manhattan Beach, California. He is engaged to Deborah Campanam who is a nurse. She is starting her graduate degree this fall to become a nurse practitioner. SWEETEARTS The Beach’s Sidewalk Social Director Gena Raymon was ringing the wedding bell to direct everyone to the Shaker last week for an Engagement Party for Kevin Morrell and Libby Sherrill Hollimon. Congrats! LOVE LETTERS Melinda Keathley sent Island Times a love letter.

Beach’s Terry Preston volunteered as the Operations Manager. She needs some help. Ask her what you can do. Who could aspire to such heights? Who took the title as the first woman to be anointed Beach Bum of the Year? She had to do nothing to earn this. No work. No job. No earnings for one whole year. All the while, this lovely damsel kept her social obligations on Pensacola Beach. It was Nini Baird and Karen Hagford was the first person to answer correctly. Karen, a friend and admirer of Nini’s accomplishment, knew that she was not always a lady of leisure. “Nini and I worked together at The Dunes. I was behind the bar and Nini was at the front desk. We also worked &-N#!!&#&( kept her wine in the ice bin,” wrote Karen. Karen, lives in Fernandina Beach with her husband Rick, but is on Pensacola Beach this week to pick up her prize winning Island Times tshirt, and visit her grandsons. The Beach Bum of the Year awards took place annually at the end of the Summer. The ultra secret Council of Winos would convene and the most sought after designations of Bum and Rookie Bum were handed out among other things. Chuck Steele would make the announcements from a wobbly bar stool in a smoke filled beach watering hole. The juke box was silenced and nothing but beer can pop tops and a few hecklers would break the spell. As a nod to the historic nature of the question and his inside track, Chuck answered, “My lips are sealed.” Apparently, the walking beach trivia encyclopedia who supplies a clue or two to a few, was consulted on this. Roundtable royalty Kim Schmitz confirmed that her answer was correct by consulting the Big Encyclo. He raised his Busch beer can in salute to the first girl Bum. Roundtable Royal Knight Sir Morrie Drees, who may be the only person who still has a Sandspur Republic hat, knew it was Nini. There were many who did not. Big Bob Dority thought it was Jane Waters. Oh no. She was busy writing about the escapades of the Beach characters and local government. From high atop her throne in the Kingdom of Wrong Answers Queen Joanne Brooks asked “Was it Jackie Henderson?” Sorry, Queen Jo. You remain the best of the not right. Ella Hess and Chrissy Cook will ask for temporary asylum in the arid area of incorrect, while they get their facts straight for the next journey into the not-known. Our friend Nini lives in West Palm. She left her beach bumming days behind a couple of decades ago for a real job. The Beach Chamber will host the sixth annual Taste of the Beach, September 14-15 to showcase beach’s best chefs. They will bring nationally acclaimed television celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern to the island. It’s not their first food festival. Way back when, they sponsored a Beach Seafood Festival. Do you remember what year the Beach Chamber premiered their Seafood Festival? Skydivers, food, crafts, beauty contests and belly dancers were all part of the three day event. It was hosted at the Boardwalk. If you can hit the mark, you will be styling in a new Island Times trivia t-shirt. Send your answer, name and phone number via email to islandtimes@ bellsouth.net with trivia in the subject line. Better hurry, this one’s easy. Deadline to answer is June 18.


PAGE Island Times June 11, 2013 Human intrusion has damaged the Gulf Coast Ecosystem but the money to repair, conserve and restore the delicate balance will come from the civil penalties imposed as a result of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Hundreds of local environmentalists and citizens packed the Escambia County Commission Chambers Monday, June to receive updates and give input to the Restoration Council. After the disaster, Congress enacted the RESTORE Act which also established a Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council. The Council is comprised of delegates '1)&&%"$&")! Governors of Alabama, Florida, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. This Council is tasked with developing and guiding the implementation of a Comprehensive Plan. The Plan’s initial draft, published on May 2, will be open for public comment through June 24. During the public meeting, Justin Ehrenwerth, Restore Council’s Executive Director, explained that the exact amount of money and when it will be available are still uncertain, but it is important to seek public input at each stage. The goals of the Council are outlined in the Plan to provide an overarching framework for a coordinated approach to regionwide restoration. The goals are Restore and Conserve Habitat, Restore Water Quality, Replenish and Protect Living Coastal and Marine Resources, Enhance Community Resilience and Restore and Revitalize the Gulf Economy. Notably, Ehrenwerth mentioned coordination between partnering agencies to avoid duplica$"&")'&$'$!+" the Gulf Coast region. As a result of the oil spill, there are many agencies who will have different Council Visits Escambia County To Seek Input on Ecosystem Restoration PlanTucked away in his East Hill studio, Jem Sullivan brings laughter to thousands. His illustrations and clever captions are featured on the front of Shoe Box greeting cards which are marketed by Hallmark. The unassuming Sullivan, a freelance illustrator, has been recognized twice by the National Cartoonist Society. The most recent accolade came during the 7th Annual NCS Reuben awards ceremony, May 25 in Pittsburgh. The Society makes awards in 15 different categories which include everything from television animation to comic books. Sullivan’s work was chosen as the winner of the Greeting Card division. In 29, a fellow cartoonist submitted Sullivan’s work for funds to allocate to a variety of projects such as Natural Resource Damage Assessment NRDA, National Fish and Wildlife, National Academy of Sciences and the North American Wetlands Conservation Fund. NRDA funds are currently available. NRDA has awarded Escambia County a 1 million stipend for projects to increase access to the Bob Sikes Fishing Bridge, according to Escambia County Engineer Matt Mooneyham. The improvements include creating an access road, improved lighting, ')$&$"&")&$ to the bridge and parking area to increase safety and handicapped access. Escambia County Commissioner Grover Robinson, whose district includes Pensacola Beach, welcomed the Council to Pensacola and reminded them that Escambia County beaches suffered the most impact of the spill in the entire state of Florida. “I appreciate your service on this Council,” said Robinson. “I can tell you what the oil spill’s impact has meant to us and what the RESTORE funding will mean to us.” The Plan describes what type of projects will be considered and how they will be evaluated for funding potential. The process to submit projects for consideration is open to all and the Council will request proposals from its eleven state and federal members. The deadline to submit proposals has not yet been established, but according to Ehrenwerth, the www. restorethegulf.gov website will contain details on that process in the future. The Council is required to have the Initial Comprehensive Plan published by July To review and comment on the Draft of the Comprehensive Plan, visit www.restorethegulf.gov. consideration. “I did not even know it,” said 4$1&"/>F"$<#&"$)!& I was a nominee.” This time Sullivan sent a few samples of his greeting cards. 0!)#&"&#)! top contenders and Sullivan was recognized as the winner. In the early years, Sullivan provided illustrations only. Now he brings the art to life with words, or vice versa. The process of creating artwork and captions creative enough to be used on a Shoe Box card is illusive, according to Sullivan. The inspiration comes in many forms. “Sometimes I will be doodling and an idea will come from the drawing,” he said. “But more often I can come up with the caption and the illustration follows.” Sullivan’s sister is Pensacola Beach resident Sandee Bredesen, a retired educator. When Bredesen was a Beach School teacher the students and staff were lucky enough to have whimsical, colorful t-shirt art designed by the award winning illustrator. Sullivan’s design may likely be a collector’s item among beach families. Want to know if your Shoe Box greeting card was designed by Sullivan? He let us in on a little secret. His cards are signed with “jem” if he created the art, and “jems” if he was the illustrator and writer.

She shared some very special talismans with instructions for her Council and Warriors. Below is an e-mail I received from her Royal Consort Johnny Redmond. enin l e es e i e nn een a ane le e ain as een enaed in ll n eaain in e ae e en iane seasn ae ni ans eeded e mannin e a and seam in e l and Inland aes nl an a e e led ea e i e ll n een a i e ea a e ll mn ise and seed e l e ain and is ses ee meein i e i nil I am a e e een as laimed e ae ead s e see sm eel lin alisman een a neiled e ea mai and mseis es e maneism e mass se ill se ale e a a ain sms Tese as ae een assed dn m an ien maines and saman m e das ld een a as aised a s and said e ae ead Thank you Johnny for providing this intriguing and informative insight into our Queen’s preparations. I also shared something very special to me. It’s an entreaty written by D.J. Zemenick &")")'&! W.B. “Keep the Hurricanes Away this Season Bawl.” It served me well and I encourage everyone to learn and use this whenever we are called upon by Queen Shugah Jayne. It reads een a da s nea ase l e eas e island ni and da nd ee e i anes aa Members of the High Council and former Queens Shugah also brought talismans used during their reign to be blessed by the Queen. They were then distributed throughout the attendees of the Bawl. One such talisman was special Red Lip and Conch Shell Whistles which assist with the “blowing to the South” method created and used in my arsenal during my reign as Queen Shugah. Warriors of the W.B. Nation, former Kings and loyal subjects have also contributed to the ever expanding and carefully guarded powerful magic treasures, needed and used by each succeeding Queen Shugah. It makes me very proud to see the representation from our past Royalty each year continuing to support and pledge loyalty to the W.B. Queen Shugah. What a pleasure to see Barry McCleary who with his wife, the &")&1)&! Royal Couple. Louise Turner, who served as the second W.B. Royalty along with her late husband J.R. Also present was Q.S. Judy L’Oignon who served in conjunction with the late Chuck LeBum. It was Q.S. Judy who proclaimed, “There will be NO hurricanes during my reign” thus creating the obligation of each succeeding Q.S. to forever use whatever powerful hoo-doo, we-doo to ward off approaching storms of hurricane magnitude. In defense of some past Q.S. who reigned during a couple of major hurricanes, each Queen Shugah is only as strong as her Nation. If you do not believe nor participate, you are an impediment to Queen Shugah, the entire Wooly Booger Nation and the power necessary to prevent such catastrophe. So, don’t go blaming Queen Shugah. Look in the mirror. I really dislike having to include the word “late” in description of precious friends. After the loss of Bernie Grimes during his reign with Q.S. Rita LovePerry, along with the passing of His High Wooliness and founder of the Social Club, Les Cieutat, the High Council no longer had the heart to search for another King, so there are now Queens Shugah only. So it’s time to get to this week’s recipe shared with us by the Mystic Krewe of Nereids Queen Peggy Henshall. She mentioned on Facebook she had cooked this for Sunday dinner. It caused me to salivate immediately. Queen Peggy claims she is not a cook, but I think this recipe proves otherwise. She did warn that she never measures ingredients a sign of a true cook so I attempted to provide some for her recipe. Any mistakes, of course are mine and I encourage you to mix and taste frequently so you can adjust measurements to your own taste.

Interrupting positive experiences makes them more enjoyable. Acts of kindness make people feel happier, but not if you are compelled to perform the same act too frequently. The intent of this and other writings has been to examine what makes us happy or what makes us unhappy. In her research she found that one of the big dials people could tune to affect personal happiness is how much we compare ourselves to others. It is interesting that unhappy people tend to feel better when they get poor evaluations but learn others did worse than when they get excellent evaluations but learn others did better. I think it is interesting that people look in so many places for happiness and yet many times fail in the most basic exploration. It is not only a proven fact that when we give ourselves to the betterment of others it lifts us, but also #!"#")#&(!$".&+ something higher than ourselves we are much happier. Maybe it would not be a bad idea for all of us looking for happiness to listen to some words of the one that has a solution for this problem. Jesus said Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? The happiness quest is simply a way to put things into perspective, and maybe, just maybe, know that our happiness is not found in the things we think. My suggestion is to look a little deeper, stay a little longer in thought, move a little slower in judgment and most of all, take time for your spirit to be at peace.

The 21 National History Fair Day theme is “Turning Points In History People, Ideas, Events.” Macy is entered in the performance category with her presentation, “Barbara Walters Changing the Channel for Women in Broadcasting.” Island Times readers may recall the story February, 21 about Maddie Mateer and her successful stage career at just 1 years-old when she was selected as the youngest actress at Le Petit in New Orleans. She performed in Atlanta as well. She was so busy, she had to attend virtual school. “After five professional shows, Maddie is back in real school,” said Lesley. “She is focusing on college prep now while attending Gulf Breeze High.” Maddie just finished her 2&'&) tion, where she played Urleen in Footloose. She was also Dance Captain for the production. Maddie will spend July at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, honing her skills at The Performing Arts Project. Hundreds of 1 to 25-year-olds audition for the coveted spots. This is Maddie’s second summer to be selected for the prestigious program. The Mateer kids are wonderful ambassadors for Pensacola Beach. They are traveling to compete and perform at extremely high levels. And, for their parents, who are so very proud, they may need to consider an addition to their Beach house, because the awards just keep rolling in. Beach Kids Make Parents Proud


PAGE Island Times June 11, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue ...........by elizabeth hewson My mother used to always say in reference to me “You can take the girl out of New Orleans, but you will never take New Orleans out of the girl.” So now I am beginning to wonder if that statement holds true for animals. A few weeks ago, we rescued a dog from the animal shelter in Milton. Pete, a four-year-old Pointer, is a north Santa Rosa County hunting dog by birth, but now resides on Pensacola Beach. His surroundings sure have changed, so will he ever adapt? First of all, Pete has to understand that his name is just not Pete Townsend Hewson the Fifth. Once a Beach resident, your name is immediately changed. Its a true sign of belonging to a family who prefers sand and sea oats over dirt and pine trees. I have a multitude of Beach names LizBeth, Lizzy, and the Lizzard, just to name a few. Pete is starting to comprehend Sweet Pete it rhymes, Powerball Pete he hit the lottery of love when adopted, Pink Eye Pete hates this one and will not acknowledge, and Pirate Pete only if he can wear a patch over his one pink eye. Next Pete has to come to grips that the Gulf of Mexico is not the Blackwater River. Though !&"+'(I& which is what he prefers on his visits to Dog Beach it can also produce waves that crash onto shore. It is safe to assume that Pete probably wont be hanging twenty anytime soon on the edge of his dads longboard. Pete, however, might make an excellent Beach lifeguard because the only time he barks is if someone goes under water. Now I know dogs eat grass because it settles an upset stomach. Pete, however, is going to have to learn that grass with a root system strong enough to hold an island together during a storm is not something to chew on no matter how much his tummy aches. He is slowly starting to %!&+&)&%& that are as tall as he is long really dont exit the digestive system very easily. I also think since Pete was originally found roaming the woods, grass may have been a food source for him. I am sure it wont be long until he realizes his new food source comes from a blue bin with a white scoop and a can with a picture of Paul Newman on it. Alligators, river otters, great blue herons, white-tailed deer and turkeys are just a few of the animals spotted recently in the Blackwater State Park where Pete was found roaming. Now he has to adjust to life with seagulls, blue striped lizards, and beach mice. The other day he was engaged in a full on hunt with a ghost crab. Pete was standing still as a statue, pointing at a member of the Ocypodidae family. Eventually, the ghost crab with his oversize black eyes stared Pete down and scurried back to his hole. Pete trotted away looking a bit confused, and returned to napping underneath a palm tree. Finally, Pete must embrace that we dont own a pick-up truck, wear balls caps or drink Budweiser. Rusted out bicycles, I$I&")')$".&! best we can do. Not to mention excellent veterinarian care from Dr. Tim Gossman at Gulf Breeze Animal Hospital licenses, tags and chips that can tell others where he now lives and a home where he is welcomed to come inside and be part of the family. Hopefully some day he will understand that what happens on the Beach stays on the Beach. That none of his buddies in north Santa Rosa County will know hes gone sandy. That he sleeps inside on a dog bed. That he has chew toys and rawhide bones. That he walks on a leash and is always picked up after. That its okay he is afraid of his own shadow and &"N%#!!)%" the other side of the sliding glass door lives.

BORN THIS WEEK You keep an open mind on most matters, making you the confidante of choice for people who need your honest counsel.?*"?Jambo hello everybody! Looking good. Feeling good. I am good. Summer is here and the music is playing a familiar tune. The lyrics sound something like “Paradise, oh Paradise, I cannot wait to spend time relaxing in the summer sun.” It is a fact that people love the warm rays and heat of the sun. So how can we enjoy our adult time outdoors with our small infants? The family is planning to go to the beach. The frantic mothers and fathers are trying to get ready. Packed are baby hats, blankets, sun care items, water, toys and the other items of dire necessity. Are we having fun yet? Babies under months and some younger children should not use any type of adult sunscreen, sprays, creams or lotions. Their immature skin will too readily absorb the chemical ingredients causing rashes and mild illness in some infants. Sunscreens designed for babies with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the only active ingredient can be used sparingly. Infants can tolerate application on small areas of their unprotected body. These ingredients are less irritating and do not absorb as quickly. Using clothing plus shade as the primary method of protection is highly recommended. Some clothing lines manufacture sun safe wear, swim wear with a UV rating. They are also labeled as ultra violet protection factor clothing. Make sure you chose materials with UPF greater than 15. Keep those wee ones away from direct sunlight. Try to get your babies used to wearing hats. Water, water everywhere. The entire family should start hydrating the day before if possible. Short outings in the beginning of the summer will ensure enjoyment for all. Everybody should be putting sunscreen on foreheads, noses, cheeks, chins, tops of feet and the ears Then your day in Paradise will result in you looking good and feeling good. And of course your statement to the world -I am Good! Quaharini until we meet again, Safarisu Pensacola State College students won 2 gold medals at the SkillsUSA State Competition held in Pensacola during April.

You’re tired of being out of breath, you’re tired of being afraid to look at the bathroom scale and you’re just tired of being tired. So, you’ve drawn a line in the sand so to speak and you’ve determined you’re going to exercise and you’re going to watch what you ingest every day. Then you think, heck, I could even run a triathlon. Well, the absolute truth is YOU CAN and you’ll get in shape and change your diet while you’re at it. Seriously. Trust me. You can do it. You know the basics it’s swim, bike, run in that order, right? There are LOTS of step-bystep training programs and tips on the internet. You’re determined and you just need to take that !+&.)/" way to succeed is by starting and training with a group of likeminded athletes. Fortunately for you, there is a training group on Pensacola Beach that meets every Sunday during the summer and has a long history of success with triathlon newbies that’s you. Mere Mortals is the triathlon training group conducted by TriGulfCoast TGC. TGC is the well-organized triathlon club of Northwest Florida and includes beginners as well as complete stud ironman triathletes. Every Sunday morning from early June through September they meet for training at a.m. relax you’ll get used to it at Casino Beach. They start off with the basics and are very patient and inclusive with even the rawest triathletewannabes. The first sessions start slowly, there are usually 1 or more people there and you’ll feel comfortable in the group setting. At the end of the summer they hold a practice race cleverly called the Members Only Triathlon or MOT. You yes, you will practice for three months and then (D"&") "$!!50 successfully. If this interests you and I think it should, welcome to the multi-sport world you’re about to get a whole new perspective on #!&D!/0! $ to go to the TGC website www. trigulfcoast.org and click on the Mere Mortals page. It will give you with all the basic information including the schedule. To participate in the training program, you need to be a member of the club. Why? Because of their insurance and risk management requirements and, hey, you want to be a member. For members, the program and the MOT are free. Then get yourself up, get out the door and be there early next Sunday morning and you’re on your way. A few questions are in your mind so let me throw out a few along with some answers. What equipment is required? You will need swim goggles and a brightlycolored swim cap for the sessions in Santa Rosa Sound and the Gulf of Mexico. Usually someone will give you a new swim cap. WHEN you are on the bicycle, a helmet is absolutely required. You need a decent pair of running shoes. What about my physical shape? You probably need to be able to swim at least 2 yards non-stop. Mere Mortals will help with your swim technique, with swimming in open water and with swimming in groups. You need to be able to jog some. Walking and jogging are a good way to start. By the end of the summer, you’ll be swimming, biking and running #$!" )"/?!(&'< certain? I started from ground zero and that’s the way I did it.

We were heading into June with one nest on Perdido Key and two on Pensacola Beach. Though our first month of patrol is generally slow, our spirits drooped a bit with nest numbers that low. Some theorized that our sea turtles arrival was delayed by the cooler-than-normal weather but we kept faith that it would still be a good year once sea turtles started coming ashore. I checked the status of patrol areas in other parts of Florida and compared their nest counts to ours. It turned out that many, both near and on the east coast, were experiencing a similar situation.

His and other stories of loggerheads, greens and even some leatherbacks which were sighted buoyed our hopes of another good year. Sea turtles were cruising around out there, literally keeping an ("+&! !'&" said, “they must be waitin’ on somethin’.” There was a sudden turnaround on June 1 when patrollers on Perdido Key, Pensacola Beach and Santa Rosa, each found a nest, doubling our total in one day.

At last, we were in business and all four patrol areas "&(!&)&"/ A mature female sea turtle does not nest every year, instead she will skip one to three years. In her nesting year, however, she will come ashore multiple times at ten to fourteen-day intervals to lay eggs. The frequency of both depends upon the species. Once more this year we are hoping for a leatherback nest. The last one we had was in 2. Sadly, that was the same year a large leatherback turtle was killed by a boat strike and washed up on Casino Beach. We’ve had none since, but we are getting more and more sightings of leatherbacks offshore. Last year both Bay and Okaloosa Counties had leatherback nests, so they’re getting closer.

I took my son for a day on the beach last week. We headed out early for our day of fun and sun. As I grabbed our stuff from the car, he just couldnt wait and ran headlong into the waves. The look of pure joy on his face as he surfaced and threw his head back made all of my hectic week just disappear. Laughing with him, I carefully set the rods down never ever drop the reel into the sand and joined him for a wonderful romp in the water. And just like that, everything was good again. Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We are so lucky to live where we do and have the sun, sand and water. Its the cure for anything. The day with Michael was absolutely fantastic.
