PAGE 5 Island Times August 20, 2013 Island roads received attention from the Santa Rosa Island Authority Full Board during their August 14 meeting. The board approved a list of secondary residential roads and parking areas to be repaved and repaired, allocating $500,000 to the project. Included in the list are stretches of Corto, Largo, Panferio and Sabine Drives; Ensenada Seis, and Avenidas 11 and 12. The parking lot at the SRIA, Visitors Center and parking lot B on Ft. Pickens Road are slated for repair. These projects will not commence until the offseason, according to SRIA Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio. Escambia County Engineer Matt Mooneyham updated the board on the Access Road project showing plans to for the road connecting Portofino Boardwalk, Quietwater pavilion area to causeway businesses and the Bob Sikes Fishing Bridge. Enhanced parking and stormwater retention would be created near Morgan Park. The construction would encroach on Morgan Park from 3 to 6 feet in areas. The County intends to repair or replace park fencing, signs and vegetation at the direction of the SRIA board. Upon completion the Park, the SRIA will seek zoning more appropriate for the Park which is currently retail-recreation. This is a good project, said Mooneyham. The road enhances safety, allows increased access for vehicles and trolleys. The stormwater improvements are a plus. Mooneyham also said the Via de Luna landscaping project has begun, and Wallace Landscaping will work from the south rightof-way to the median and then to the north side. The project will move ahead cautiously, weather permitting. Certain plants and the irrigation can handle hurricanes, said Mooneyham. Obviously we are not going to have unplanted palms in harms way if there is a storm in the Gulf. The lighted crosswalk on Pensacola Beach Blvd. will be installed after Labor Day. Additional improvements to the Toll Facility are also being postponed until after tourist season. The Board has submitted nine projects to the Beachs Escambia County Commissioner Grover Robinson for consideration by the RESTORE Council for funding. They are Gulfside beach renourishment and dune Pavilion improvements, Core area turtle friendly and pedestrian safety lighting projects, pedestrian boardwalks, Park West lighting, storm water drainage projects, Sabine Channel widening, resurfacing all Beach roads and parking lots, and CR 399 shoulder stabilization for parking. The board did not prioritize the projects. Citizens who attend SRIA Board meetings and wish to address the board have a policy to guide them. The Public Speaking Policy includes a three minute time limit and the speaker start of the public meeting. Any SRIA board member may allow speakers request forms to be turned in during the meeting and may extend the time allocation. The public will be allowed to make comment at the end of each meeting during the Public Forum. Executive Director Buck Lee received approval of his recommendation for promotion of his executive assistant Robbie Schrock to the Director of Administration position. In a 5 to 1 vote, board members voiced support and concerns about the hiring process, the release of information to the media prior to the Board vote, and the need for a more experienced candidate. With his dissenting vote, Fred Gant commended Schrock for good job performance as the executive assistant but thought the SRIAs future challenges required a more experienced candidate. This beach is a very unique place, a special part of the County and a revenue producer, said Gant. It needs attention to keep operating at a high level. We have some challenges to face with the taxation issue and must be prepared to create our own future. Following the promoting from within scheme, Lee announced that former SRIA Senior Lifeguard Andrew Edwards will serve in the Human Resources, Events coordinator and assistants position vacated by Schrock. The SRIA will be a $5,000 sponsor of the Bethel AME 148th session of the Florida Annual Conference. Delegates will be using Pensacola Beach hotels for lodging and sponsorship will help defray transportation costs to the conference being held in Pensacola. Gulf Power requires a $2,500 insurance policy to allow Christmas decorations to be attached to Beach power poles, so SRIA Board Member Janice Gilley replied, Bah. Humbug. The staff will consider alternatives for the decorations. Board Members discussed the following at their open forum: Member Dave Pavlock would like a review and consolidation of the variety of logos used to represent Pensacola Beach. Tammy Bohannon and Fred Gant voiced concerns about the future of the SRIA, what appears to be erosion of power and lack of vision for the future. We need to keep our power. It is being eroded and chipped away. We need to take it back, said Bohannon. We are the Island Authority and we run the beach. The Pensacola Beach Dog Parks will expand hours to stay open until sunset. The change will not take place until next year, according to Comissioner The Committees meet Wednesday, August 28 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public. The agendas are

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction; this is the law of cause and effect. No action goes unnoticed. We may fool ourselves into believing that our actions do not matter, particularly if we think no one will know or no one is watching. But all our choices impact our futures. If we look at the people who have made a great difference in the world, we see that they all made courageous choices. One of the main reasons that we have the teaching of Jesus today is to let us think about how we think, and what we do. Over and over again Jesus told stories that would engage and cause the listener to struggle. We have that unique inner power that keeps us alive spiritually and physically. We all have an internal fire that governs us as we approach the we feel strong, powerful and courage to speak truthfully and the humility and clarity to ask for what we need. This is where God comes in and guides us through the world. However, if with worry and doubt. We have a tendency to shut off any new information that would better our lives. When Jesus said come unto me, all that labor and are heavy laden it was not to let us be on vacation from our spirits but rather to enhance our spirits. Choices are made by each of us, and understanding the circumstances allows us to make the best decisions. With so much information at our fingertips it is important we take what God has given us with mind, spirit, and heart to follow the best path. I hope today brings good decisions and wonderful destinations. manned by a woman, usually. Over the last 15 years, Pegge Phillips has been at the helm. Through thick and thin. Through retiring pastors, interims and new preachers. The Beach Church is a special place and the job requires a special touch. Probably the same at any church. Pegge will retire at the end of September. The Sisters of the Beach will recall when one of their own, Deb Shaw, was the Beach Church secretary. A former legal secretary and typesetter for The Islander lessly, fast. She had perfect phone manners and loved the beach and its characters. It takes a multi-tasker, good listener, event planner and cheerful soul to get everything done in 20 hours, but somehow these administrative gurus get 'er done. It's time for someone else to take the helm. The new hire will begin in mid-September. The Beach Church is a nice place to worship and reportedly a nice place to work. We are looking for someone to join our team who understands the needs of those that are served by the church, said Rev. Tom Garrison, Beach Church pastor. and receptionist duties. It will also include computer and Internet work. The assistant will also maintain church records, manage the calendar and order supplies. There may be occasion to work on payroll and bookkeeping.

PAGE 8 Island Times August 20, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue ...........by elizabeth hewson As the self-appointed mayor of the twelve hundred block of Ariola Drive, Pete, my furever family member, is more than ready to close the shutters on the dog days of summer. As we sat out on the balcony sharing one last bag of salt and vinegar potato chips, his soulful brown eyes said it all. "It's truly been a ruff one," barked the former resident of the Santa Rosa County Animal Shelter. Transitioning from a hunting dog lifestyle to beach living hasn't been easy for the six-year-old Pointer. "First my humans expected to me to live inside with refrigerated air. So I gave up my lean to in the backyard, learned to walk up and down steps, and even mastered the dog door," explained Pete. "Then I endured multiple trips to dog beach for leisurely swims in the Gulf of Mexico. I was truly hoping for a really nasty, smelly ear infection that would curtail this activity that was encroaching on my 23 hours of sleep per day. But it never happened. Turns out my humans have a never ending supply of ear cleansing solution." "I've been ambushed by sandspurs and stared down by with scary noises. I am a dog and all sound like someone is shooting at me." "And don't forget about my tail," he continued between barking at all of his furry constituents as they walked by the house. It's not quite the tall tale Pete would like everyone to believe. Earlier in the summer, he bumped into a glass end table that fell over on him and cut his tail. This required stitches and lots of fancy bandages. "Plus, my friend Sunshine is still missing," he sighed as he stretched his long muscular body across the weather beaten boards. Sunshine, the Feline Queen of Ariola, reigned supreme in the eleven hundred kingdom until she didn't return to her beach front lair. She and Pete had a healthy cat and dog relationship. He was happy to hide behind anything and anyone when he walked into her kingdom. Yes, dog days of summer are coming to a close just as we enter prime time hurricane season. So if you have a furry or feathered or scaled family member, now is the time to ensure you have an evacuation plan for them as well. Make sure you have up-tovulnerable family member at all times. Keep a recent photo with your important documents. It's recommended that a one week supply of water, food and any special medications should be in your pet's evacuation kit. Don't forget bedding and toys. Have the numbers of friends, family, hotels and shelters that are pet friendly. Finally, under no circumstances should you leave your feather, furry or scaled family member behind should you have to evacuate. I know what a dog looks like who has been left on his own to forage for food and water. Pete has both physical and emotional scars that even spending the rest of his life in a loving home will never erase. Until next time...A welcome home toast to Gale Walker Tytlandsvik, right, and Janice Morgan, left, was raised by Sisters of the Beach Lynn Cieutat, Claudia Fischer, Lois Jernigan, Gwen Gibson, Sharon Mattair, Peggy, Sandy Watkins, Danah Gibson, Judy LOignon, Amy Depew, Courtney Winstead, Denise Keever, Susi Mardis, Kathi Lewis, Candy Segar, Liz Hewson, Charlotte Spencer, Paulette Provost, Gloria Skaggs, Becky Shearman, Marilyn LeNormand and Jayne Drees at the summer party hosted by Jane Peaden, August 7. Janice traveled from Wetumpka, Alabama, a mere 189 mile jaunt to be with her friends. But, Gale and her husband Kelly and kids Shelby and Tanner were visiting from Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada.

McQueen earned the Player of the Month title by amassing more first place tourney finishes. Must be something about playing outside that suits McQueen. He took top honors at the Sandshaker Lounge bushwacking Mary Kay Wood, Ted Gorder and John Woodham on July 8, July 15 and July 22 respectively. July 1 belonged to Trace Lewis at the Shaker. High flying Mike Wood was the runner up. The ladies are still making their presence known at the Texas Hold Em tables. Janie Uzdevenes battled Justin Scher for forty-five minutes at the Sandshaker, July 29 to earn a Monday night victory. One of the reigning poker divas Terri McKamey earned the win over Ted Gorder on July 28 at Paddy OLearys. No more second place finishes for Gorder. The luck of the Irish has been with him while playing at Paddy OLearys. Gorder scored first place finishes on July 11, July 18 and August 1. He left Fr. Sean, Pete Falgout and Todd Lentini in the runners up position. Gorder made short work of the Sandshaker hopefuls when he bested Lentini again on August 5. Justin Scher was a Fourth of July winner at Paddy OLearys over Sean Gough. Scher added another first place to his collection on August 8. School teacher Tootie Humphrey took a break from her classroom preparation to sit in on the poker game. She took home the second place honors behind Scher. In a battle of the poker titans at the Sandshaker, August 12, Mike Wood earned his first place by betting and bluffing his way past Beach pioneer Tex Atkinson. The Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun games are open to anyone 21 years or older who has a basic knowledge of the game. Its time to get back to the felt, said Poker Promoter Rick Uzdevenes. Dont worry, if you are a rookie or just rusty, join us. Its all for fun. The annual Celebration 4444 Education Texas Hold Em Tourney is set for Saturday, October 19 at 1 p.m. at The Dock. The tourney is open to all and proceeds benefit the Pensacola Beach Elementary Schools Music Department.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your efforts to defend your project begin to show favorable results. You should soon be able to win over even the most determined detractors who had lined up against it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You win praise for your selfless efforts in a very difficult situation. But be careful not to allow your generous nature to be exploited by those who have their own agenda. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A trusted colleague sheds light on a recent spate of puzzling workplace situations. This should give you the information you need to bring to your superior's attention. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A shift in workplace management could be helpful for talented Leos and Leonas who have been waiting to have their accomplishments rewarded by receptive leadership. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A misunderstanding between you and someone you care for should be corrected immediately. This relationship is too important to lose over a bruised ego. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A welcome piece of good news helps clear the air in a family situation. A jobrelated incident also eases as more information provides a clearer focus on the problem. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Quick action to heal bruised feelings pays off in a big way. Now you'll be able to move forward with your plans without that problem holding you back. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your creativity combined with a positive attitude should give you a considerable edge in finding a way to get around the negativity you've run into. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) That sudden streak of stubbornness could cause some problems. Try to be more open to helpful suggestions and more flexible in making needed changes. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Now that that special relationship appears to be well and truly restored, you can spend more time dealing with those long-needed workplace changes. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new opportunity sounds promising. But watch out for any conditions that might be attached. Before making a decision, ask that each one be explained in detail.

You examined your tires and theyre free of puncture-causing debris and are properly pumped up and tight. Look at your race number and the numbers on the ends of your bike rack. Everything match up? Put on your sunscreen and head for the exit. Before you leave Transition, look around and mentally note where your rack is located. You have over an hour until the start of the race and youre preparing by walking slowly to the water. There youll get a great feel for your surroundings as you observe the sunrise, feel the wind and watch the current while enjoying the quiet of the early morning.
