The Islander Newspaper November 6, 1984In the last issue of The Islander we told a tale of dancers who never pay the piper. Indeed, its the pipers who pay for the dancers on Pensacola Beach. We pointed out that the citizens of Escambia County rigidly maintain that the beach belongs to them, and should be forever retained in all its pristine beauty for their pursuit of pleasure. However, no Escambians other than those residents of Pensacola Beach, fund the many public facilities and services which necessarily must be maintained for the use of day visitors. At this point in the Fall of 1984, the hottest issue on the Beach is the review and completion of the Land Use Plan. Hopefully, from the standpoint of the Leaseholders and Residents Association, this plan will cut in half the densities which are currently allowable. They have asked that development and redevelopment come to a screeching halt until a Development Code has been completed and accepted. They have maintained that the SRIA had the cart before the horse when it approved the leasing of 101 acres to Faddis and Keltner, who requested a zoning change to commercial/ multi-density residential. The plot thickened for the Island Authority when the Board of County Commissioners shot down the lease to Faddis and Keltner. The SRIA, already committed to expand and thereby, double the capacity of the sewer system found itself without The six and a half million dollars they expected to acquire up front from Faddis and Keltner, fell by the wayside on a three to two commission vote. So, its back to the pipers who pay. No one knows right now how much our utility rates will increase. No one knows if our lease fees will escalate as they come up for their an escape from this morass? Yes. The name of the escape route is tourism. Blessings upon those folks who show up here, wearing their plaid shorts, Hawaiian shirts and straw hats. Although these outof-towners are often the target lets in the pockets of those plaid shorts. The wallets are filled with cash and credit cards. They bring money to spend on Pensacola Beach. They may order one hundred dollars worth of but they pay with American dollars and they leave generous tips. You may even detect a Midwestern twang in the voice of a tourist when he charters a or a moped or a bicycle. Go ahead and laugh but not too long or too loud. WE ARE ALL DEPENDENT ON THOSE TOURIST DOLLARS WHICH FLOW TO THE COFFERS OF THE ISLAND AUTHORITY. This is a fact of Island living, frequently overlooked by the residents of Pensacola Beach. We need tourists and we should go all out to court them and keep them on our shores as long as we possibly can. Over and over again, we have heard that Pensacola Beach has little to offer in comparison to Destin, Ft. Walton, Gulf Shores and Panama City. These ing the delectable fruits nurtured by the tourist dollar. Can we, without approving endless condominiums, get in the act? Can we, without creating a circus/carnival type atmosphere, attract our share of paying guests? Yes, we can. Instead of constructing condos and more condos, even at reduced density, why not consider the construction of a mini theme park? Take those 101 acres and enhance the land with a water related, year around classic attraction. Think about entertainment of all types a boat ride on a replica of the ship DeLuna sailed over here in mimes, puppet shows. Musicians, craftsmen, artists and clowns. All in a unique setting with lagoons, walkways and fountains. The possibilities are endless. If this type of activity on this plot of land seems utterly inconceivable, take a look at go back about ten years ago, but at that point, information from Business Week shows that Disneyland in California was built on NINETY ACRES at a cost of $20 million. The park employs 1,100 people. Disneyland does not have its own hotels, etc., so it in business for the surrounding area. DisneyWorld in Orlando turned some boggy land into a theme park which employs 10,000 people and attracts ten million visitors every year. It took 3,800 workers two years to complete the huge complex which is self contained with all its own However, the amusement area is built on only 100 ACRES. According to Dudley S. Taft, a theme park developer, a mini theme park should cost 18 to 20 million dollars. He himself acquired a mini theme park in 1972 in Cedar Point, Ohio. At the half million dollars. The park had grossed eighteen and a half milThe advantages of a park on Pensacola Beach are at once apparent. First, it would provide year around employment, but for its entire lifetime. There would be minimal stress on sewer and waste water plants. Pensacola Beach could finally advertise a family attraction that would outclass anything in Northwest Florida. And the bucks rolling toward the SRIA could be dazzling

So I know shes smiling down from Heaven because my grandson Jesiah Fitzgerald received a Florida Achievement Award for making the highest FCAT score in the State of Florida in reading. His little sister Quincy Rowe (mySissyGirl), who has just entered the second grade, is reading at the third grade level. Pappy and I are always so very proud of their accomplishments but these top the chart for me. Of course Im positive they have both inherited their skills from me, after all, Im 59 and reading at the 65-year-old level. The Mystic Krewe of Nereids, while attending the Mermaid Retreat, left some distinct and lasting impressions upon the citizens of Colonial Williamsburg. After 24 hours in town, the doormen at the Colonial Williamsburg Lodge stared announcing our arrivals. Ella Hess, Christine Hewerdine, Elaine Mitchell, Becky Shearman, Courtney Winstead, Marilyn LeNormand ginia around midnight. Our hired shuttle driver was only too happy to make a food stop for us cause yall know they only serve 10 pretzels and 15 peanuts a very long time, I was pleaspassengers were very friendly Atlanta I was seated next to a polite young man from Southern California. He had been in Pensacola to celebrate his grandmothers 87th birthday. Before leaving, he purchased a lottery ticket and left it in her care in case they won. Im keeping my Our hostess for the Mermaid Retreat, Rebecca Suerdieck met us on Tuesday morning at a local fabric store. She had arranged for several seamstresses to take our measurements and sew our new Mermaid Tails. After being measured, we were free to shop tings were required. Rebecca is known as the Jamestown Mermaid, which is where our photographs were taken on a lovely sandy shore with some very large rocks. Being a Mermaid is just one of her many jobs but she still managed to treat us like royalty and cater to our every whim. Upon check-in at the Lodge, we were presented with very nice gift bags containing an assortment of sure coulda used that on the airplane!) She also served us lunch every day and her sweet husband, Mike aka Mikey Mon not only helped carry and fetch, but joined us as much as possible. On Tuesday evening, Mermaid Rebecca had arranged for a private Ghost Tour of Colonial Williamsburg. One of the ghosts who died at a young age fell in love with Christine and followed us back to the Lodge where he made his presence known with some very distinct messages. Then there was our favorite shuttle driver who was instantly struck by Marilyns beauty and charisma. Of course, we called him every time we needed a driver (which was nearly every day). Luckily they have shuttles that can easily hold a group of our size since most of Colonial Williamsburg was operating on very short hours. We had dinner at a Tavern called Josiahs Chowning after the ghost tour. But when we headed to dinner at another Tavern, we found it was only open from 5 until 8 p.m. I think we may have been at the end of their tourist season. Can you imagine our beach dining establishments operating only 3 hours per day? We all spotted Josiahs Chowning Tavern because of its similarity to my grandsons name. It was a great dinner even though it served uncolonial food it did have lots of colonial entertainment. We even learned theres a Language of the Fan. I only have one language of the fan and it is, Im extremely hot so get outta my way. It turns out that Mermaid Rebeccas brother lives in Milton. It really is a small world, huh? We expect to see her on our sandy shores when she comes to visit him. Well be strolling along the beach in our mermaid tails which we can hardly wait to show off! Its been an extraordinary summer for me and theres still more to come. Well soon be road-tripping to Marilyn LeNormands for the Krewes private Splash Party. Next will be the Taste of the Beach with Andrew Zimmern and a Mermaid Parade. In October, Bill and I have second row seats at the IP in Biloxi to see Kris Kristofferson. By then it will be time for the Krewe of Wrecks Halloween Party and when will it stop? I hope it never does. Im still dreaming of Mermaids and Pirates roaming our island.. To celebrate the Taste of the Beach, its only appropriate to share a recipe from one of our favorite locals. Although the menu, it comes from Renee Mack at Paradise Bar and Grill. Cmon, nobody gives away their trade secrets. Still, its a keeper so lets cook.. Grilled Honey Shrimp1 lb. jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined Cup honey Cup soy sauce Wasabi to taste 1 tsp. sesame seed oil Combine equal amounts of honey and soy sauce using more if needed to cover shrimp. Add Wasabi to taste and marinate shrimp for a minimum of 35 45 minutes. Remove shrimp, discard marinade and place shrimp on hot grill. Brush with sesame seed oil and cook until shrimp turns pink. Enjoy, share and thank a See ya in the kitchen..

There is always something on one of our media sources; television, radio, computer, tablet or smart phone, that invites to make judgments on things we have little knowledge about and no control over. We are not only confronted with those things, but also with the tasks of our everyday lives. The decisions we make can, and many times will, affect the rest of our lives. I have found that some choices are easy to make; Some will lead us to success, while others will bring us faceto-face with failure. A number of years ago I recall when I was living in Canada, there was an older man I visited often. He recounted the opening of the local paper manufacturer, which would produce all the newsprint paper for Boston. He had a choice to stay at his job or go to work for this new big business. He decided to stay where he was since they both paid the same, while most of his co-workers went to the new jobs. By the time I arrived in Canada, all the people of his age had retired. He told me that his retirement was about onethird of those who chose to go to the other company. This weighed on his mind and he talked about it continually. It was a couple of years after I moved back to the U.S. that I received word that he had taken his own life. He could never recover from making what he felt was the worst financial decision of his life. His wife said he could never forgive himself for what he thought was such a bad decision that affected his life and his familys. In our world of choices and decisions it may be good to ask the right questions. Here are a few to help us along the way; right or am I looking for whats divinity or am I choosing from my The choices are ours, may God lead us as we make them. Pensacola Beach Elementary School Board of Directors kicked off a new school year by voting in three new board members. Beach residents Kristin Amberson, Wendy Kaufman and Lois Hausman will join President Todd McCurdy, Mark Thompson and Jeff May on the governing board of the Beach's charter school. They replace Julie Cardon, who retired from the board; and Shelby Smith and Jennifer Neal, who are Beach School staff members. The rules have changed and staff no longer can serve on the board. Principal Jeff Castleberry reported that the opening days of school went smoothly. The current enrollment is 135 students. Grades third, fourth and The kindergarten class is at maximum capacity, so the Board approved Castleberry's request to hire Becca Rivera as a full time co-teacher. Castleberry announced that teachers would share bonuses which are being funded by the State of Florida. The board approved a formula for distribution to each teacher based on her full time or part time status. The Beach School, which is a charter school, does not receive funds from Escambia County and is funded through the state and by private donations. Based on the current enrollment, the Board set a fundraising goal of $65,000 to balance their annual budget. We will really have to reach out to the community with our Partners-in-Education campaign to meet this goal, said Todd McCurdy, board president. The Partners-in-Education letters have been sent to each parent and previous donors. information online at www. pbes.org.

A: The most common problem is related to overheating of the computer. There are several causes for overheating, so I will cover some of them in this article. First, look at the way you use the laptop computer. Contrary to its name, the laptop is not designed to sit directly on your lap. The exception to this would be some of the new computers that have no ventilation openings on the bottom of the computer. Most laptops still require some air space between the laptop and surface on which they are sitting. bottom of the computer and cools the hottest parts of the computer. puter will shut down unexpectedly due to excess heat. The thing to know about this problem is that you should avoid placing your computer on soft surfaces, such as sofas, beds, and pillows --and your lap. As time goes by, the small fan inside the computer pulls dust, lint and pet hair into the computer. Eventually, the dust builds up around the air intake, slowing the air flow. As the intake becomes more heavily stops completely. Because the computer is generating high heat, the computers internal parts become extremely hot. The heat can be felt on the bottom of the computer and occasionally through the keyboard. If the bottom of the computer feels uncomfortably warm, the computer is overheating. The result is that the computer starts to exhibit problems, including powering off, video failure, and failure to power on. By that time, the main circuit board (motherboard) may be damaged beyond economical repair and may have to be replaced. The good news is that, if the problem is detected early enough, the covers of the computer can be removed and the blockage can be cleaned out. After that, the computer will be back to normal. A few other things, such as defective batteries, can cause computers to be hot, but that is easily detected by operating the computer without the battery. In that case, check your vendors is under a recall. This article was provided by The Stukey Group. For questions, contact Joe at joe@ycpals. com or 850-206-3156.

Washington High School FREE admission Win prizes Fun activites for the whole family Donate canned food for the needy Give blood at the BloodMobile Jambo (Hello) Everybody! Success is relative. It is how we can turn around the mess we have made of things. T. S. Eliot is a wise man. Sometimes we are singing along and this choice just does not work out. When we reflect about those singing times we are very glad because maybe it was time to start dancing. We all have an artists perspective hidden deep within. Throughout the ages, the beauty of the human form has inspired creative individuals. The very soul of that beauty is illuminated through the eyes of the face. The delicate bone structure and individual natural features stand out in people of all cultures. Distinct features of the human face distinguish each of us as unique creatures. The human face is brilliant. It is soft, smooth, and has its own texture and tone. This makes our face extraordinary and so incredibly unforgettable. Artists are immersed in the creative process and like any work of art the natural order of life is the aging process. Our aging influences the texture, tone, and appearance of skin. We have talked in past editions about repeated exposure to damaging sunlight. We also need to acknowledge the damaging effects that chemicals introduce into our bodies and skin. Did you know that whatever is absorbed through the skin bypasses the liver and is absorbed directly into the blood stream? So all those toxic and harmful chemicals in the products we use and put on our skin do not get broken down. Be careful of the specific beauty products you put on your skin. Eventually the skin starts to thin, age spots appear, and uneven skin tone, with wrinkle formation resulting. Daily changes in diet, choices of products and increased consumption of water are our weapons against this damage. In the next issue I will give you an organic moisturizer formula. Remember, some people are like teabags...they dont know their own strength until they get in hot water. So start dancing if your singing career does not blossom.

Jugs & Bottles is a heart-warming story of Bottles, a golden retriever who protects and saves his hearing impaired owner from bungling criminals and is a perfect combination of the comedic style of movies which appeals to all family membersparents and young adults alike.

I clicked the light on my wristwatch and it read 4:37 a.m. my alarm would not go off for gotten to sleep at about 11:30 the hours of rest. That was par for the course for my preparation for the 2013 Sandestin Triathlon. The race would start in less than two hours and I was seriously under-trained. I had been running 3-4 times a week all summer, but I had perhaps three serious swimming sessions under my belt and I had been on my posts on websites and Facebook thousands upon thousands of emails about triathlon. Theres one theme in all of them Keep Training! This would be my fourth triathlon this year and I hadnt really trained properly for any of them despite attending most of the Mere Mortals sessions throughout June, July and August. I took a deep breath, exhaled out of bed by 4:45 a.m. to start dressing. Fortunately, I had the ber, running shoes, bike shoes, helmet, bike, tri suit, goggles, swim cap, wallet and keys were arranged just as I had left them in some logical semblance of order. I had already put my bike number on the top tube, had attached my helmet number and had mixed my bottle of sports drink. At least I was prepared from a gear standpoint. another supplement and pushed my bike out the door towards entire interior of the hotel and no one was up and walking around except me. Cramming my bike a silent, solitary ride down to the lobby and headed out into the foreboding morning. It was briskly and clouds were racing past what little I could see of the moon. I got my bike on the rack on the back of the car, secured it front seat next to me. Less than a mile away I stopped at Circle K for coffee. I was behind time-wise and needed to hurry so I just sloshed some in the largest cup, drizzled in Resort and got in a sizeable line of cars carrying others who were tion opened at 5 a.m., most of warming up. I parked and walked my bike and gear a mile to Transition where I got body-marked, racked my bicycle and arranged I walked down to the beach and got there ten minutes before so I wouldnt start swimming until 24 minutes later. I jogged on the cool sand to get my heart of the start area and got in the Gulf of Mexico. The surf was a bit rough and full of seaweed, so in the water. There were also some jellyfish in the water. I took enough strokes to ensure my shoulders were loose, I was breathing deeply and my goggles and windy and those were the last moments I felt comfortable the entire morning. I entered the water perhaps 20 minutes later, labored in the water, fought the wind on the bike for 20 miles and trudged team members) and my time wasnt horrible, but it was clear to me that I hadnt prepared properly and that was pretty humbling. Another day, more calories burned and more lessons learned. Keep training! fun of the 2013 Paddle for a Cure on Saturday, Sept. 21, on Little Sabine Bay on Pensacola Beach.

Sun: Live Music 5 to 7 p.m. Perfect way to wrap up your weekend When I think back to 2013, Ill remember it as the summer of rain. It became more frequent in late June and by July we could depend on a downpour almost every day. By the fourth week in August wed had over 56 inches of rain; almost 13 inches above normal to date. Rain has a big effect on sea turtle nests. It cools the sand and slows incubation time. A hot, dry summer can hatch sea turtle eggs in 50 days or less, considerably quicker than the average 60 days. In comparison, a cool or wet summer like ours can extend the incubation time to 70 or more days. Extended periods of rain can also affect the sex of hatchlings, resulting in more males since rain cools the temperature of the sand. Cooler temps produce more males, hotter temps produce more females. This is also true inside the nest itself eggs at the top or in the middle of the clutch of eggs where it is warmer are more likely to hatch as females, while those at the bottom of the nest where it is cooler are more likely to be male (remember: hot chicks; cool dudes). Ive done patrols on Pensacola Beach and it is a different experience than my patrols within the National Seashore. I have more opportunity to interact with people on the beach and answer questions. I have also learned a lot from them. One of the most surprising discoveries is that many people who vacation on Pensacola Beach have no idea sea turtles nest here. Their faces light up when I tell them about our successful sea turtle monitoring program and that this has been a record year for Pensacola Beach with 20 nests so far. One mother and daughter both cried out in unison, Where, where?! As I pointed to a nest nearby, they were shocked to realize they had walked right past it every day that week, focused instead on gathering shells. There was another special discovery I made last week. A member of a beach set-up crew at one of our hotels, waved me down to see how our sea turtles were doing. In passing I mentioned how nice it would be if we could create an Adopt-a-Beach program to help keep the residential areas of the beach free of trash. This tanned and tousledhair young man proudly told me, This is my adopted beach right here. Thats why we have higher dunes in this area. As I looked behind me, toward the area he was pointing, I noticed that the dunes were indeed higher in that area. When I get sea oats, he explained with a wave toward the golden stalks, I replant them along here. I planted all those Morning Glories, too. It was then I realized that the color of amethysts, had been planted by this young man. But it was only in that moment with the broad sweep of his arm that I saw he had established a long chain of them which were in various stages of growth. They cushioned the lower half of the dunes and their long graceful vines reached out to link themselves together. From one season to another he had quietly created and tended a place of beauty on the beach where he has spent his life. Its the paradise he knows well, loves and respects. His work has grown and stabilized the dunes, so his actions have also made a positive environmental impact. It doesnt always take a large group of people to accomplish big things in life. Each one of us has the ability to start a ripple effect. One person can make a difference. I know one who did. Gulf Islands National Seashore Superintendent Dan Brown announced today the upcoming annual International Coastal Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, September 21, from 8 a.m. to noon. Coordinated by the Ocean Conservancy, the International Coastal Cleanup is a major worldwide event. Our goal isnt just to clean the beaches, it is also to educate people about keeping the beaches clean in the first place, said Superintendent Brown.
