Even if the raging waves beneath the Bay Bridge did cause a barge operator to lose control which resulted in the Big Bridge Bash, there may still be some good in that ill wind. For the first time in recent history, Island and Gulf Breeze residents faced a choice of getting to their workplace on the Mainland via Hwy. 87, which added about an hour and a half to their normal driving time, or they could board a ferry and take a shuttle to their jobs in town. We've heard nothing but complaints about Highway 87 and nothing but raves about the ferries. Charter boats with varying passenger capacities are making the run to Pensacola on a regular schedule with more and more residents opting the cruise across the Bay which takes from 30 to 45 minutes. And the boaters are loving every minute of it. Tuesday, the first day of the operation, brought compliments. There's coffee, the morning paper, and spectacular scenes as the morning sun explodes over the water. The boats are comfortable, warm and skillfully skippered by experienced personnel, so it's like a mini-cruise for lots of land lubbers. The temporary loss of the lifeline from the Beach to Pensacola is not so damaging as it muters are hoping the ferries will remain in service long after the bridge span has been repaired. Consider the tourist potential of the ferry boat. Great music has been composed about the New Orleans "Ferry Boat to Algiers." People ride that ferry as an every day means of getting to work and back, and on weekends they ride it for fun. They are always joined by tourists who want to experience the joys of crossing the muddy Mississippi on the famous Algiers Ferry. Public transportation is a way of life in New Orleans, and children learn early how to negotiate the bus and street car system to get to and from school, or downtown or to a friend's house. Workers from outlying suburbs park their cars along the bus route, and ride transit into town to save huge parking fees. If the transportation system goes on strike in New Orleans, the entire city is paralyzed. So, the ferry boat which has been forced on us by a collapsing Bay Bridge, could and should become a permanent fixture. Wouldn't a lot of Pensacolians prefer to ride the ferry to and from the Island on summer weekends? What is more fun? Sitting on a boat with a soft breeze blowing across the water to cool you or sitting in a car, trying to keep cool in bumper to bumper traffic on the long Bay Bridge? We vote for the ferry, and we hope at least one or two shuttles are here to stay. And another lesson to be learned from this isolation is that there is no place like this Island or go beyond Gulf Breeze so the bashed bridge is not a problem. All our needs are here from fine groceries to elegant restaurants. If you're a mall addict, try shopping in some of the great little stores on the Island and in Gulf Breeze. What a pleasant surprise not to have to fight crowds, hunt for parking places and purchase the same clothing half of Pensacola is buying right along with you. no place like home for living, shopping and having fun and think of all the fun we'll have on those romantic mini-cruises to the Mainland even if we turn around and return to the Island. Which I will undoubtedly do. A TOAST TO FIFTY YEARS Beach residents Pete and Kay Amberson were married August 17, 1963 in Cuba, New York.

PAGE 5 Island Times September 17, 2013 November Beach Air Show Takes FlightPlans are no longer up in the air for a November 9-10 event on Pensacola Beach. The Santa Rosa Island Authority allocated $117,000 for the Pensacola Beach Air Show at their September 11 Full Board Meeting. If the Blue Angels are able additional $53,000 necessary to accommodate the United States performance. Robbie Shrock, SRIA direc tor of Administration, gave the board a detailed budget and civilian pilot line up in her report. The price tag of $117,000 for a Pensacola Beach Air Show which included civilian acts only was at issue. The mid-summer show did not attract as many spectators since the Blue Angels did not appear. However, Innisfree representative Harlan Butler spoke in favor of the show. You have a once-in-a-life time opportunity to bring the Blue Angels Air Show to Pensacola Beach twice per year, he said. We dont know if the Blue Anwill be value, a return on your be heroes for years. Board Member Tammy Bohannon admitted it was a leap of faith, but encouraged the board to approve the project. Citing the need to support businesses in the off season and attract day visitors who infuse cash into the economy, Bohannon made a strong case for hosting the air show. ment, she said. We considered investing $100,000 in a car show and this event has a broader appeal. Board Member Janice Gilley, who attended the meeting via telephone, reminded the Board that the budget woes in Washington, D.C. were not any better. She felt the sequestration that grounded the Blue Angels would likely continue. Members Dave Pavlock and Fred Gant agreed that investing in an air show was a prudent risk to take. Prior to the unanimous vote approving the Pensacola Beach Air Show, SRIA Chairman Dr. Thomas Campanella said, If it is was an experiment. Were going to gamble on it. In other business, the Board approved the Consent Agenda which included an amendment to the Noise Abatement Ordinance. The Pensacola Beach Advocates brought a request to the SRIA board to adopt the same ty uses for the residential areas of Pensacola Beach. The SRIA will County to amend their newly minted Noise Ordinance. If approved the standard of reasonable levels of noise would be applied to residential areas on Pensacola Beach. The Core Area would remain unchanged. It is currently subject to a decibel measurement to determine if the ordinance is being breached. Board members discussed the current landscaping project cambia County and paid for by The fund is generated by excess lease fees paid by Portofino. Chairman Campanella noted that residential leaseholders have new plantings in their front yards whether they want them or not. Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio responded that the landscape contractor attempts to contact each leaseholder prior to planting. He also pointed out that the current planting is on the County-owned right-of-way, not the leaseholders property. Pavlock noted that the problem is that leaseholders have encroached into the County rightof-way, not vice versa. When the project moves to the north side of Via de Luna, there will be a request to access and plant on selected leaseholders property because of obstacles like power lines and the bike path. The leaseholders can grant or reject the request. The contractor is responsible for the watering and care of plants to guarantee their survivability, according to Ghio. The Pensacola Beach Cham ber, which manages the SRIAowned Visitors Center, pre sented the statistics for August. Nicole Stacey, president, noted that there were 2,461 visitors at the Center, traveling from as far away as Germany and Italy. Texas, Florida and Missouri were the top states represented. During the Board Members Forum, Gant congratulated the organizers of the SummerFest Labor Day Concert, and noted Baptist Church convention were currently booked at beach hotels. Dave Pavlock asked that staff look into the stark appearance of the lifeguard towers. He believes that they could use some additional artwork. He included the Beach Fire Station in his list of buildings that are visually unappealing. As I drive around the Beach, I try to look at it from the standthe broad, plain concrete look to that building is not inviting, said Pavlock. Schrock announced to the Board that a special Bands on the Beach had been scheduled for Thursday, September 26 starring Chloe Channell, the Santa Rosa County 11-year-old who competed in the nationally televised Americas Got Talent. The Santa Rosa Island Au thority Committees meet Wednesday, September 25 at 5 p.m. at the SRIA Boardroom, #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public. Agendas are available

What I didnt realize is how many doors open as soon as you say, Mermaid. In searching for special fabric for our Mermaid Retreat this summer, I was astonished by the number of sellers who were actually excited to think their lovely fabric might spend its life as a magical Mermaid tail. Some even asked for photos of shipping. I also went shopping late in the evening at a local store. The gentleman who works in the Paint Dept. came over to cut the material I had chosen. During our conversation, I found out he collects Mermaids. He told me he used to drive big trucks and has collected Mermaids from all over the country. Knowing his love for this legendary mystery of the sea, his family can most likely spot a Mermaid a mile away and make sure it becomes part of his collection. I would love to see his Mermaids. We were all so excited about the Mermaid Parade everyone was running around the island from house to house sharing ideas, fabric, iron-on tape, sparkly stuff, glue, everything and anything to make sure our tails would be ready. We also wanted them to look their very best in hopes this prestigious Parade will continue and grow. (I am thrilled that it was conceived and sponsored by our very own Beach Chamber.) This was the most excitement Ive seen around these parts in a long time. Maybe we can add Pirates to next years Parade. And a Treasure Hunt. Remember the old Scavenger Hunt that was part of the Beach Bum of the Year Event? What fun that was and even though we were all younger, we still needed a kid to provide us with that live skink every year. Well, our team did anyway. Now, Im even thinking about an entire Mermaid and Pirate Weekend Event. (Of course, my boss is thinking, Are you sure you want to tackle that job? I dont.) One of the jobs I have truly loved this summer is being a Judge for the IT How Sweet IT Is dessert contest. Big surprise there, huh? That is a job made in Heaven! I was also asked to be a Judge for the Pensacola Seafood Festival Seafood Contest. Are you kidding? Seafood is my favorite (next to and with dessert). So if anyone ever has need of someone to Judge any sort of cooking contest, I am willing to donate my services. I am very good at eating and I will even bring references, if needed. Some of you may remember that at the beginning of this year, Well the year has done just that! course, although I do have several sets of wings. And I did travel via airplane to the Mermaid Retreat in Virginia. But what I really meant was to spread the unseen wings of my heart and soul and embrace every new adventure available to me. I have had the time of my life. I have met and made many new friends in the world of mermaid and pirate lore (a few quite famous) as well as spending more valuable time with my grandchildren and other family members this summer. And I hope Ive managed to represent our community in the best possible ways with people who share our love of the salt, sand and magical waters. Im fairly sure I left some sort of impression. The Mystic Krewe of Nereids refreshed our spirit in the lovely magical waters at the home of Marilyn LeNormand tember. What a relaxing mystical place in which to restore our energy! We even managed to get a little krewe work done in setting our preliminary dates for our Mardi Gras events next year. (Its gonna be a great Season, so join the Krewe of Wrecks in October.) Mostly we relaxed bunch of great food (shoulda got a recipe), had some dance practice, ate some more, soaked our were in physical pain. Oh my Lord, it was wonderful! Thank you Marilyn and Jeanne Tawney I cannot imagine how it could possibly have been any better. Since I mentioned the calendar, the Sisters of the Beach always have the Christmas Brunch which is December 1. That turns out to be Thanksgiving weekend. However we will be keeping the tradition and the date since the following Sunday, December 8, is the Island Christmas Parade. Mark your calendars Sistahs! Everything will be the same: Flounders 11:00 a.m. And keep that pencil out because theres a lot more coming up that you do not want to miss.

It is a story that crosses racial, political, gender and religious boundaries. This story has been viewed in many ways, but one way that I think is very important is the way Jesus was trying to attend to the heart of the Samaritan woman. He recognized that a per son who has a broken heart would respond in many ways when touched. Maybe it would be good for us to consider the condition of our heart today. Jesus seems to be trying to give this woman a place for her heart to come back to her. It is always true that the demands of daily life tend to lead us everywhere but our hearts. So it is special when someone stops to pay attention to our heart. This begins by being present. Instead of letting our minds wander into the past or future, being present nourishes our heart. Taking time for the simple things in taking time to listen and nurture our selves. In these moments, wor ries fade as a gentleness of the heart comes forward. Jesus was actually inviting the woman to change the pace of her life. This is a bit like when we slow down in all we are doing, we are being more and thinking less, a new heart practice is being found. We are much more than the normal structure, demands and expecta tions of normal life. This story was not written down by mistake because each of us has a reservoir of all kinds of feelings to take time for, be open and accepting to. Our feelings are not something we need to be fear ful of. In the safety of our retreat, feelings come and go. They are only feelings, memories, and experiences passing through our awareness. It is taking time for our heart to experience being gentle, accepting, patient with everything and everyone who comes into our minds. Meanwhile, there is a well of being inside of us. This well is our source of inner peace and quiet. True meditation practice is a practice of the heart. We cannot know how the rest of the life of this woman moved forward, but one thing for sure is that meeting Jesus did not let her keep her heart quiet. It is a wonderful thing to have an open heart that allows us to tell others of what goes on. To is present deep within our hearts. This practice is receiving from our well of being, God inside of us, or whatever we wish to call this sacred place, which is in each of us. Arrive at a place at which we have an opportunity to make a heart of new beginnings, of listening to, offering and re ceiving the many gifts within the heart. New beginnings, new life comes from taking time and making a practice of the heart. Daily life will continue to be transformed by our encounter with one that lets us look again at our heart.

PAGE 8 Island Times September 17, 2013[Native Orleanian Elizabeth Waters Hewson arrived on Pensacola Beach in 1978 at age 14. Love and careers swept her to other shores, but she has returned with The Colonel and The Kid to live permanently on the Beach.] It's Sunday morning. All is incredibly quiet in my house at the bewitching hour of 6 a.m. Except for me that is. To the Colonel, the Kid, and the Dog, it's just another Sunday and an opportunity to sleep in. I, however, know that the New Orleans Saints will be taking to Superdome in six hours against the Atlanta Falcons. I am looking forward to a season free of brown paper bags and another I have so many things to complete before the toss of the coin. I have muffalettas to assemble. Gumbo to stir. A black and gold explosion of decoraSoon my boys awake. The kitchen and immediately per forms his one trick -sit and shake. At one point in time, he is in a full-three point stance mid-air, his soulful eyes begging for a sliver of salami with a side of provolone. Instead, he and the reminder that I will be muffaletta fixins for the Dog who peed on my Saints carpet. Refreshed from an early morning swim in the Gulf of the Colonel saunters into the kitchen wearing a red North Face shirt and black surf trunks. It kills me not to comment on his attire. I am hopeful that by noon, he changes his shirt. I could give him a hard time, but it would be lost in translation. He probably doesn't even know he's wearing the opposition's colors. He gives me a hard time about wearing me stories about what the girls used to do to get a Hurricane player's jersey. I secretly think wouldn't mind. Finally the Kid awakes. He drags his weary teenaged bones upstairs and asks, "Did I hand him a box of cereal and return to making my roux for what he calls "Orleanian Chicken Sausage Soup" because he doesn't eat gumbo. He makes the sarcastic observation, "Oh let me guess, the Saints must be playing today." I remind my boys that lunch will be served during halftime and that the game starts at noon. The Colonel heads out to the balcony with a pot of espresso and the New York Times on his iPad. The Kid unfolds from the breakfast table, inquires if the dishes in the dishwasher are clean or dirty, and then pro ceeds to place his cereal bowl in the sink before he heads to his bedroom. I add emptying the dishwasher and putting up the clean dishes to my to do list before kickoff. The Dog is still trying to get my attention with sit and shake. While the gumbo cooks and the muffalettas marinate in the oils of the olive salad, I upload the WWL Radio app to my iPhone. For years, I have listened to pre-game and postgame interviews with the New Orleans Saints via WWL, but for some reason the audio won't load. So I sit through Fox's pregame show and all the talk about all the other teams in the NFL. gets it right and picks the true winner. off, my boys begin to assemble. The Dog proudly sports the Saints neckerchief that belonged to my mother. The Colonel is still wearing black and red. The Kid is lounging in his pajamas and reminds me to let him know when it's halftime as he heads back into his bedroom. What dat is wrong with you blank stares. The Dog cowers in the corner and makes a hasty retreat to his dog bed. Then it dawns on me, watching a Saints game with my immediate family is like being with the "See no football. Hear no football. Speak no football." trio. The Colonel manages to read online the Washington Post, Politico, Slate Magazine, The Onion, and Sail Magazine during the entire game. He never sees one play. He only looks up when I am yelling like thigh as the Saints are about to score. He sighs and is heads down immediately in his iPad. The Kid's music is cranked so loud that at one point in time I think I see some fans in the Superdome dancing along to the beat of it. He never hears the crashing of helmets or the line of scrimmage change up plays often, he yells out from his room how much longer until halftime.

Pensacola Beachs Lauren Pinkston keeps racking up wins at regional beauty pageants and talent contests. She was crowned Miss Heart of the Gulf Coast, which was a viewers choice award, during the August 11 Miss Heart of the USA contest in Panama City Beach. This was a pageant with a purpose; supporting local food banks, providing scholarships and affordable pageants for girls, said Laurens mother Dr. Tracey Pinkston. As part of her duties, Lauren is raising money to be donated for scholarships and to support local food banks. Most recently, Lauren competed at the Miss Heart of the USA contest in Enterprise, Alabama. She earned first place in her age group in each category she entered which included most photogenic, best essay, queen, interview and a stage introduction without the benefit of any notes, according to her grandmother Bettie Lee Sundstrom. Lauren brought home more than trophies from the Miss Heart of the USA. Her family rescued a dog who was wandering along the dark, two-lane highway leading to Enterprise. After a quick trip to purchase a collar and food, Lauren has a yellow lab to add to her menagerie. She has named the dog Butters. Lauren will compete in the North Florida State Pageant September 27. She is 8-yearsold. There is no word whether Butters will accompany her. Sept 18 Trivia at ParadiseFREE AnswerJambo (Hello) Everyone! Question of the Week: What is the oldest known, continuously inhabited city? Like this ancient city, our skin is continuously aging. Lets accentuate the positive. Fortunately, our faces will benefit and maintain a more youthful appearance from daily application of healthy beauty products. We have the ability to slow down the clock. Do you know what ingredients are in your personal facial regime? The FDA doesnt review products unless they are considered over-the-counter. So who is vouching for the safety of the products you are using? Are the products and formulas you are putting on your skin safe enough to ingest internally? This question was definitely a turning point for me. I started quizzing my granola friends for suggestions. Here is one recipe offered by Debra St. Claire for moisturizerlotion: 2/3 cups distilled water 1/3-cup aloe vera gel-from a fresh plant leaf cup apricot or almond oil 1/3-cup cocoa butter 1-teaspoon anhydrous lanolin 2 Tablespoons liquid lecithin ounce grated beeswax Directions: Melt the oils and wax together, without burning. Set aside to cool. Whip the aloe in the blender. Then add the water and blend slowly. While the blender is on, drizzle the oil mixture slowly into the blender and you should see a change in the consistency. Once it thickens Success! You are done. Spoon into a darker colored jar and keep in the fridge. This should last a month or so. The answer to our question of the week? Remember in your childhood songs, Joshua fought the battle of Jericho. Jericho is the oldest known continuously inhabited city, a desert oasis. Together we will slow down the aging sands of time.

Youre thinking Why? and Hey, its a no-brainer, you just stretch it out and youre good to go, right? Ive stretched out for 3 minutes and now Im ready to run my best race ever, right? No, not really. Ive done yoga off and on for much of my adult life and Ive stretched in many ways throughout my years of running, tennis, golf, triathlon, swimming and other physical endeavors. After many years of doing it incorrectly, Ive done a lot of research and adapted some techniques to my needs and I think Ive hit upon the proper method that is right for me. I know youve been to a 5K race and you see people bending over, touching their toes and holding that position for a certain count. Youve also seen people grab their foot and bend it up behind them while balancing on one leg. Finally, youve observed as men, women and children put their forefoot pad on a curb and lean slightly forward stretching their calf. Weve all seen this time and time again. Whats wrong with this picture? First, there are generally two types of stretching: static and dynamic. Static stretching is putting your body in a position that puts pressure on one or more of its muscle groups and then holding it. Leaning at an angle against a and thus stretching your calves for several seconds? Yes sir, thats static stretching. Pulling your foot up in front of you to your opposite hip and holding it? Again, thats static stretching. Dynamic stretching is motion-oriented. Balance on one foot while swinging your other foot out in front of you and then back behind you in an arc and then repeating? Thats dynamic stretching. Alternately moving your arms in a windmill motion (large circles), thats dynamic stretching. But Ive always bent over, touched my toes and held it for a count of 20 (or 30), Again, whats wrong with that you ask? Well, most of the people you see doing static stretching have not really warmed up. The start of the event is 10-15 minutes away, they got out of their cars, walked over to a wall and started in this situation is your muscles and connective tissue are cold and theyre not ready to be put under serious stress. There have been many studies done on static stretching and Ive yet to see one that said static stretching enhanced performance. Moreover, there is plenty of data out there that evidences injuries from static stretching. Stretch a cold muscle, tendon or ligament too far and a pull is going to be the best thing that happens. A strain, tear or worse is certainly possible. Dynamic stretching, on the other hand, has been the subject of several studies that present data demonstrating dynamic stretching enhances performance. Further, it seems to help prevent injuries. So, forget what you thought in the past, warm up well before your race with dynamic stretching, then walk and jog a short while and you should be ready to go. Your muscles should be full of blood, your connective tissue is ready and your lungs are ready to perform at high capacity. Im not promising a personal record, but I think youll enjoy your event more than ever if youll follow a thoughtful, dynamic, pre-race routine.

The important piece of equipment. The amount of prongs on a gig is a critical factor. Single-prong gigs Flounder can slip or spin right off of the gig, and it's generally harder to lift the Flounder out of the water with one. Multi prong gigs, which have three or more prongs, cover more area and increase the chances of gigging and For successful Floundering the weather conditions need to be just right. Low wind and calm, clear water are the keys to a good chance to get these tasty ripple and reduce visibility when looking for the Flounder. Choppy water stirs up the silt making it is coming in, concentrate your the tide is going out, hunt away from shore. Flounder gigging is performed at night. Traditionally, giggers used a lantern, and some still do. Modern lighting options increase the chances of spotting the Flounder. Underwater pole lights are an ideal choice and oflights are held by a pole and stay lights, you don't have to squint and peer through the lantern glare generally use high-powered 110 volt lights running off of a generator. This also allows a hands-free fishing experience, where you don't have to hold both the light and the gig. In order to gig the Flounder, you need to know where to look. Heres a hint, if you don't see the Flounder feeds on in the area, chances are you won't see any Flounder either. A Flounder's diet And it's not just Flounder right now, Trout are still on the Mackerel are all over the place as been plentiful near the piers and they are good eating. The key here is very early morning as in right at sunrise and an hour before sunset and very late night. The water has been clearing very nicely since we've gone a week with no rain.
