Not as much as I originally thought when I blithely decided to repair some bare spots on the west wall of my house. Most of the chipped areas have been there for nine years, but recently I noticed that every strong wind that blew across the Gulf took a toll. The fact that the trash man, the meter reader from Gulf Power, and I are the only three people who ever walk on that side of the house makes most of my worry over the broken wall pretty unnecessary. Besides, the bottom of the wall is obscured by dense sea oat growth. Realistically, this flaw in my old house could have gone unnoticed for nine more years. That did not stop me from running out and purchasing two cartons of gray dry stuff to be used for patching concrete and stucco. I put together equipment for the job – a plastic bucket, a rusty trowel, a scraper, a teaspoon, a towel, and a paint brush. The instructions on the box read, “Add water.” That sounded simple enough, so I emptied the gray stuff into the bucket and turned the hose on it. My first attempt at stirring up a batch of stucco resulted in a soupy mixture that slid down the wall and settled into a dismal puddle on the sidewalk. I added the second carton and brought it to a consistency that would stick on the wall if I was super careful to apply it with a delicate touch. The trowel I used was too heavy or something. Every time I thought the stucco was sticking, I would trowel a little pattern and the trowel would scrape the whole thing off. After working most of the morning, using up both cartons of cement, I had covered about a square foot area. I decided this was going to be one of the great challenges of my life, so I marched out on Monday and bought six more boxes of mix. That was in April. Just this last weekend I finally found time to tackle the wall again. After working Saturday and Sunday, I am again out of mix and have three or four square feet left to cover. But I have conquered such horrendous problems as consistency, how to make little decorative swirls, and how to make the stuff stick on the wall. The very next free weekend I have will find me “frosting the wall.” Looks like it will be sometime in October. If you’re biking, jogging or driving past my house, please do not look at the west side. Yet. Some day, it will all be stucco. It will be painted white. It will not be as historic as the Berlin Wall, the Great Wall of China or the Vietnam Wall. It will be Jane’s Wall. And after it is repaired, I will return to baking and frosting cakes to satisfy the mixing and swirling instincts which seem to lurk in my subconscious……Boot Scoot To The Boardwalk Can you two-step?

Meyer-Arendt’s dissertation. His topic was Resort Evolution along the Gulf of Mexico and when he came to the chapter on Pensacola Beach, he was lucky enough to learn from Dr. Jim Morgan, a former LSU professor and coastal geologist. He stated that “Pensacola Beach is located near the western end of northwest Florida’s 52 miles (83 km) long Santa Rosa Island.” So there you have it, the length of the Island according to the LSU tiger. The father-daughter team of Sarah and Big Bob Dority nailed the answer. “52 miles and hugs,” wrote Big Bob. The Trivia Master accepts both. Now to see what the team will do with one shirt. Perhaps they will alternate days A #%#")!6#* Jersey Girl Gwen Foster’s answer was a few miles short, but implored the TM to give her a shirt since she had “lost hers” at the Hard Rock and Wind Creek Casinos. Her luck did not change when she ran out of gas after attending Bands on the Beach. Too bad Jersey. At least your answer of 50 was closer than hubby Walt, who thought the island was a whopping 160 miles long. Jean Luke, who can probably run 40 miles, made that her answer. She was in good company. Sir Morrie Drees and Lady Kim Schmitz of the Knights of the Trivia Roundtable, Sharon McGraw, Dr. Steve Claus, Sal Serio and a string of others came up with the same answer. Sir Morrie has a formula, “Santa Rosa Island is twice as long as half its length,” which puts way too much mental gymnastics in the way of a quick answer. Melanie Waite, who plucks her Island Times from the mailbox, at first thought it was 26 miles, then she recalled that there was more to the barrier island. Mel patrols parts of the island looking for turtle nests, so she gave an update with her answer. “I was out there just this 3"#"6 ".#"63$ !"%". two false crawls at Santa Rosa,” said Mel, the Turtle patroller. The Queen of Wrong Answers Joanne Brooks has lowered the drawbridge allowing entry into her kingdom of the Close, Not Right and Plain Old Wrong.

PAGE 5 Island Times July 23, 2013 The Santa Rosa Island Authority Board is upping the stakes for projects to submit to the RESTORE committee. SRIA Board Member Tammy Bohannon, who also serves on the RESTORE Committee, told her colleagues at the July 10 Full Board meeting that projects need to be “game changers.” The RESTORE funds allocation, which will flow to Escambia County as a result of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Settlement, may be as far into the future as 48 to 60 months, according to Baskerville Donovan’s Jim Waite. Waite reminded the SRIA Board that Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key were impacted more heavily by the spill than any other beach in Florida. Based on that welldocumented fact, he advised the Board to bring forward projects and think about how to package those requests to make the beach better. Waite, who studies the many and sometimes convoluted process of seeking BP "3"$%#.!%!% other funds which are currently available depending on the types of projects. The SRIA board discussed adding two double decker busses to their project list. SRIA Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio advised the board that the SRIA is not in the business of owning busses or trolleys. If funds were secured, the purchase should be made by Escambia County and added !A##"6587+ trolleys that the Beach rents seasonally. Ghio reminded the Board that the operational budget to increase the number of vehicles and ".! days of operation would be 630,000 annually. “While we are impressed by the ability to have double decker busses paid for by someone else, given the needs and calendar, we will be faced with establishing a budget for running the vehicles,” said Ghio. Board Member Janice Gilley thought the double decker busses should be removed from the Beach’s list of projects. “This is one time money,” said Gilley. “Maybe we should make improvements to the island that would make a lasting impact. I am not sure the busses would do that.” Bohannon reminded the Board that there are stakeholders on the island who are very much in favor of putting double decker busses into service on the &%!%%)%$#'% and parking woes and as a tourist attraction. Board Member Fred Gant thinks the double decker busses are a win-win and should remain on the request list. Gant also mentioned the parking garages he saw on a recent trip to South Florida. The structures, according to Gant, were not the typical unsightly forms. “We should look at garages, and the unfunded infrastructure project list,” said Gant. “Let’s pull it out again. We should increase our wish list and get more of the BP funds.” A preliminary letter has been delivered to Escambia County Commissioner Grover Robinson with the beach’s project requests. It has since been amended, and will contain additional projects as soon as the SRIA board decides what they may be. A vote to continue discussion in Committee, passed unanimously, where Baskerville Donovan engineers will assist with goal setting and project recommendations. “When we understand the goal, then we can match the projects to the goals,” Waite said. “We can then decide which bucket of money might match.” The request letter and unfunded project list is online at www.myislandtimes.com. In other business, the Santa Rosa Island Triathlon board made a 2,000 donation to the SRIA Junior Lifeguard program.

The opening date has been delayed because the sign manufacturer suffered a fire. However, the Trail has already been the topic of national media attention. Sign installation could begin as early as this week. Pensacola Beach Chamber President Nicole Stacey announced during her isitor’s Center Report that Pensacola Beach was voted as the Best Tourist Attraction in the es nals Best of the Bay contest. During the Board member’s forum, Chairman Thomas Campanella updated the Board on the Eco-Tourism Conference he attended in South Florida. He noted that the composition of their climate supported more plant and animal habitat, so their ecosystem is more varied than Pensacola Beach. However, he boasted that Pensacola Beach has prettier water, whiter sand, better lifeguards, free parking and trolleys. “We should all be thankful for what we have here on Pensacola Beach,” said Campanella. “From the turtles to the trolleys, our area is a blessing.” The Santa Rosa Island Authority Committees will meet Wednesday, July 24 at 5 p.m. at 1 ia de Luna. The meetings are open to the public. ariirTr“RESTORE projects need to be game changers.”A Board ember ammy Bohannon

PAGE 8 Island Times July 23, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue ...........by elizabeth hewson Since Memorial Day, I have been on a major scavenger hunt along the sands and streets of Pensacola Beach. Basically, I was trying to see what I could accumulate from the end of May until Labor Day in left behind items that people were either too lazy to pick up out of the sand or just plain forgot. Unfortunately, due to a broken foot my hunt has ended. Still I would like to share with you 33$3%C ".D% car mats, lipstick, a University of Florida themed bottle opener, an adjustable crescent wrench, a babys blanket, towels (hand, bath, beach), shorts, t-shirts, shoes, one glove, lots of koozies, wedding engagement party momentos (glasses, koozies, lighters), and my personal favorite King. Actually, I had a little help with the finding of King. The Colonel, Pete and I were out for a quick trot down Ariola Drive between the many thunderstorms during the July 4th holiday week. It seemed like every house was rented and driveways were 'A )#"6)#!%(.%% was the south side of the street. A young couple from northern irginia was coming up off the beach through a vacant lot when both she and I spotted something barely sticking up out of the sand near the road. She bent down, dug a little and pulled up and out of the sand King. After a brief conversation and the fact she and her husband were getting on the road to irginia, she put King in my custody %".)#!.3( ".#"6!# owner. King was actually a small stuffed lion and was wearing an if found, call tag on his purple bejeweled color. King had a Texas address as well. I thought to myself, how hard could this be and proceeded to knock on every rental house within in a two mile radius of where we found King as long as there was a Texas license plate in the driveway. I thought for sure I ). ".B#"6N)"& I returned home, but luck was not with me. Once home, I called the number on Kings tag and got a voice mail -the kind that you are not really sure who you are calling. No name, just a repeat of the phone number. I left a detailed 3%6%& ".#"6B#"6%". left my name and number hoping for a call back. The minutes turned to hours and to alleviate my own anxiety, I groomed King the best I could. He was looking very bedraggled, all drenched in rainwater and caked with sand. So I gently cleaned him and put him in a pillow case for a light spin in the dryer. The next morning I received a call from Kings family. The entire time I had King, I envisioned his owner to be a young child and kept thinking about how sad this child must be to not have King by her side. Turns out King was not a new stuffed animal, but had been the constant companion of his owner since she was eight. Her dad explained that his daughter was now 22 and he would be over promptly to retrieve King before they headed back to Texas. It also turns out King had been lost on the beach for days and their trip to DisneyWorld was a bit stressful since King was missing. I didnt have the opportunity to meet the family or return King in person. Instead I had to leave him on my doorstep, but I made sure he was well protected from the predicted storms. While I was in line at the grocery, my phone buzzed. It was Kings family. He was safe and on his way back to Texas. Most importantly his owner was happy and calm. In all caps the text 3%6"..)#!DO+?7-B OU And to think this game of mine originally started out as a way to clean up after others. I am not sure what I am going to do with the loot I have found to date, but for the next month or so, if someone drops something in the sand, either on the beach or along Ariola Drive, hopefully some other scavenger will pick it up. I was raised to leave only my footprints. Unfortunately, right now I am leaving behind one footprint and two rubber stopper marks from my crutches. Until next time... King

Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie (this must mean my nice sleepy Tshirt). Don’t save these fun events for special occasions. Today let’s treat our skin like it is as special as we are. Resuming our questionnaire from the last issue What is your skin care type? 4. What is your least favorite season for your skin? A. Winter Ouch my skin gets so dry and chapped that it hurts B. Summer My face is so shiny and yucky. I feel that within a few hours my makeup is melting off my face. C. Every season of the year seems to have a unique challenge for me. 5. What one skin care product is your go-to item the one you always carry with you? A. A small bottle of face lotion for your tight, dry itchy skin. B. Blotting papers or powder for the constant touch-ups for the shiny spots. C Well it depends on the season of the year. In the summer, I may carry powder. In the winter, I sometimes carry a moisturizer. If you answered Mostly A our skin type is dry. Mostly B our skin type is oily. Mostly C our skin type is normal. Hear’s the deal. Now that you know what your skin really requires, you need to pick up the formulas and routines that are right for you. Use all of the same products in the same skin care line. They are made to work together more effectively and you will get more bang for your buck. our skin is unique, and a skin care line will give you those unique options of formulas and products, that will enhance your specific skin type. Then your skin will be radiant. Time heals almost everything. Pick a skin care line and use it consistently. our skin will thank you. Get that special dress out of your closet that always makes you feel fabulous. Wear it. Why are you saving it? Today is a great occasion to do so Quaharini (until we meet again) Safarisu Put the sunscreen away and lace up your sneakers for two summer evening programs hosted at the Fort Pickens Area of Gulf Islands National Seashore, located at the western tip of Santa Rosa Island. Park Ranger Beckie Mims will lead an hour-long walk at the end of Santa Rosa Island Thursday, July 25, at p.m. The public is invited to participate in this leisurely hike, which will begin at the Fort Pickens Auditorium. Walkers will have the opportunity to explore historic remnants of America’s coastal defenses and view native flora and fauna. The level of difficulty is easy with some soft sand. Participants should wear closedtoed shoes and bring water. Park Ranger Beckie Mims will lead an hour-long program on the night skies of Gulf Islands National Seashore Thursday, August 1 and 8, at 8 p.m. Meet at the Langdon Beach Gulf side pavilion, which is located two miles west of the Fort Pickens Entrance Station. “Bring the entire family, and a blanket to sit on. A short 200 yard stroll along the sand leads to an ideal location to spread out a blanket and enjoy a planetary lineup of our solar system. Relax and learn about the many park species that depend upon dark night skies for their survival,” said Superintendent Dan Brown. Participants should remember the Fort Pickens Entrance Station closes at sunset. Late arrivals will not be allowed to enter.

It’s a chilling experience considering the particular raceway that each of the bridges has been for decades. It seems drivers like to speed up and see how close they can come to you even though you’re hugging the guardrail well to the far right side of the bike lane. After pedaling over ten miles from Cordova Park to Casino Beach, I would determine whether I wanted to ride to Ft. Pickens, stop at one of the convenience stores for coffee or a beer, swim andor run or just turn around and ride back. No matter how I varied it, the ride was always great training and I certainly learned to focus on riding in a straight line and keeping my head on a swivel. One of those rides resulted in an “aha” moment that is still implanted in my mind several years later. For almost a decade I traveled to San Diego 5-6 times a year for business purposes along with several personal trips. Located in the southwestern corner of the United States, it’s a very positive, fantastic city that is bubbling over with energy. Multi-sport was born there and it is probably the greatest triathlon city in the world. The San Diego Triathlon Club has over 3,200 (yes, three thousand two hundred plus) members and there are many challenging and scenic venues where you can train in each of the triathlon disciplines. There are numerous military bases in the area with excellent athletes to throw into the mix of motivation, training and competition and several storied races are there as well. From La Jolla, Torrey Pines, Carlsbad, Encinitas and Mount Palomar in the north, to the southern tip of the Silver Strand on the border of Mexico, people are in constant and continuous motion. I used to drive over the Coronado Bridge and look down at San Diego Bay, Point Loma, 8"%.%".!%# %" and think “wow, what an amazing place.” I always looked forward to returning there. So, one afternoon I was riding my trusty Trek to Santa Rosa Island and I stopped at the top of the Pensacola Bay Bridge. I sat on my bike supporting myself with my right foot on the bottom of the guardrail as vehicles whizzed by. I looked west and saw the sun shimmering off Pensacola Bay all the way to the Pass and out to the Gulf of Mexico. I saw the west end of Gulf Breeze jutting out into the mirror-like water and I turned my head and looked east to Escambia Bay, East Bay and the Garcon Point Bridge. It was truly an awesome view. I pushed off and continued riding south. At the apex of the Bob Sikes Bridge, I stopped again and I gazed down the intercoastal waterway. ou can see the white sand of the island reaching out to the west and ending at the Pass. I looked east at the recreational &%% #";%"%/%;". and saw the residential neighborhoods. And I thought “wow, what an amazing place.” Since that day, I haven’t let go of that thought. I grew up going to Pensacola Beach as a kid and playing on the sand and in the water. I worked at the beach for four summers as a teenager. In the years since then I guess I took it all for granted. Fortunately, twelve years ago I took up triathlon and I re-discovered one of the most unique and beautiful places anywhere. Jackie Brown represented the SRI Triathlon board July 10 while presenting a 2,000 donation to SRIA Public Safety Director Bob West for his Junior ifeguard program The contribution was a portion of the proceeds generated by the SRI TRI, which is set for October 5 this year

People no longer leave the office behind at 5 p.m., instead they bring it home with them where it constantly beeps and chirps alerts, requests and updates, demanding as a colicky baby and leaving us exhausted the next morning. We are always “connected” and constantly pressured to be accessible. Somewhere along the way we’ve lost our ability to slow down and be present in the moment. We’ve disconnected from the earth and forgotten the pleasure of sitting quietly with her on the beach at night as she calms us with her rhythmic sighs. We no longer understand secrets whispered between sea oats and playful night breezes, because imagination is becoming a lost language. Our beaches and National Seashore are cherished by those who call this home, as well as those who come here to strip off the mental and emotional armor which weighs them down. It is beautiful to see those who come here to reconnect with their families, realizing what is really important in life. Unfortunately, however, many cannot stop their compulsion to rush through life and the result can be deadly. Just last week we were devastated to discover that someone driving through the Santa Rosa area of Gulf Islands National Seashore hit and killed a large female loggerhead. She had come ashore, laid her nest, and headed back to the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately she became disoriented and managed to crawl into the roadway where she was killed. She was found the following morning by one of our sea turtle patrollers. We will probably never know the circumstances surrounding the death of the sea turtle, but she probably weighed in the vicinity of 250 pounds which 3%(#.# #3%6#"!% someone going the speed limit could miss seeing her. And, sea turtles are physically unable to dart into the road. In the end, this endangered creature which .!..'#'%&$ becoming the statistical one in 1,000 (or possibly in 10,000) which made it to adulthood lay dead and discarded by someone who didn’t slow down. The speed limit within areas of the National Seashore is dropped from 35 to 20 miles per hour each summer for a distance of about three and one-half miles to protect endangered species which return here to nest. This allows time to react to things like tiny chicks of the endangered Snowy Plovers which look a cotton ball on toothpick legs and can dart into the road much faster than you can apply your brakes at higher speeds. There are an estimated 450 Snowy Plovers left in the whole state of Florida and our island has the great honor of being one of the premier nesting sites of these adorable little birds. So far this year approximately 0 chicks have been killed by vehicles speeding through the Park. Reducing your speed to 20 miles per hour through a posted area 3.5 miles long will add approximately four minutes and thirty seconds to your drive through the National Seashore.
