If you have any information please call Julie at 850-341-7193. The Islander Newspaper July 24, 1987The pale waters of Santa Rosa Sound gently brush the small sand beach in front of Surf and Sail Boardsailing. Every day, all sizes and descriptions of tanned folks lead their colorful boardsailing craft to the water and climb aboard to pit their skills and strength against the soft winds that blow across the Sound. Boardsailors are now a familiar part of Pensacola Beach's daytime scene. It has not always been so. In fact, Pam Jordan Dirschka started the business by herself about six years ago. At that time, the water sport, well known in many areas, was just gaining popularity in local waters. During those first years, Pam worked long and hard to establish boardsailing on Pensacola Beach. She taught classes, started day camps, gave individual lessons, and built up an inventory of boards and related merchandise. She conducted numerous competitions culminating in the hosting of the Mistral National Championships several years ago and again this fall. It is to Pam's credit that she alone has been successful in sponsoring an event that will attract approximately a thousand people to the beach during the days of November. When Pam started Surf and Sail, the summers went pretty well, but the winter months were devastating. She never gave up. She ran her business by day and worked as a waitress at Flounder's by night. She survived and so did her business. When the days grew warm in spring, she set aside her waitress chores, and devoted all her time to boardsailing. She stayed on top of the boardsailing business by competing in as many events as she could and by attending national conventions. At one convention, she made up her own package and speech and delivered it to the selection committee for the Mistral Nationals. She landed the championships. All by herself. Pam has been active in civic and church affairs, and serves the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce as secretary. She the job requires. She has used her time, her computer, her creativity, and diligence to upgrade the Beach Chamber. She has tackled problems in the business community and has solved them. Take the sign ordinance, for instance. Early this year, the Santa Rosa Island Authority was about to approve a sign ordinance so strict that many businesses would suffer. No one did anything to stop the vote until Pam took over. She formed a sign ordinance committee within the Beach Chamber. The members worked countless hours and met over and over again until they developed a far less stringent plan which the SRIA eventually accepted. Pam is loyal, forthright, and full of energy. Hard work has been her constant companion for the past few years. I have never felt the community understood the magnitude of her accomplishments in furthering business and bringing tourists to Pensacola Beach. She deserves far more credit than she has ever received. Recently, Pam sold Surf and Sail to Mike Mead who swore on a stack of surfboards that he would carry on the business in the energetic tradition established by Pam. So, she is sort of retired for the moment. Oh, we will see her conducting the Mistral Nationals. She will continue as secretary of the Beach Chamber. And she is the process of organizing a new business which will feature vacation packages on Pensacola Beach. Beyond all that, Pam's newest occupation is sure to bring her to the pinnacle of her career. She and Paul have just found that they will be parents. Do not be surprised next summer if you see a talented boardsailor with a tiny person on her back, sailing through the pale waters of Santa Rosa Sound.

She skunked the Knights of the Roundtable, the regular trivia talents and the know-it-alls who pop on and off the radar. Seems Robin was at Kim and Keith Howells bayfront house and spotted the familiar aquatic metal sculptures which had been repurposed into yard art. She recognized them as the backrest of the bar stools from a popular beach bar. The Trivia Master was seeking the name of the bar from which the bar stools came. The lively creatures were part of the seating at the Sunset Bar and Grill. Robin took photos and sent them in, thinking that someone, somewhere, would remember. The Trivia Master received guesses from as far away as Arkansas when Bob Seitz thought it was The Dunes. Angeli McMillan said she had many good times at The Dunes with April Hargrove. Apparently, true. But not the right answer. Big Bob Dority sent HoJos as his answer. The Beachs Most Famous Lifeguard Dave Greenwood said, HoJos which then became the Beachside Resort. Good hotel history, but not the bars name. The bar at HoJos was the Rum Keg, just in case you were wondering. Five Flags, said Sir Morrie Drees and Wild Walt from Jersey guessed The Tiki prior to its demise. Robin gets a t-shirt. The Trivia Master likes her style.

PAGE 5 Island Times October 1, 2013 The Santa Rosa Island Au thority cooled its jets and voted against hosting a civilian-only November Air Show at their special Full Board meeting September 25. The proposed two-day Pensacola Beach Air Show was to have civilian pilots at a cost of $117,000. Board Member Ed Guernsey said, After this summers civil ian only air show, we know that is not the same draw as the Blue Angels. I think it is too much money if we do not have the Blue Angels. Board Member Fred Gant disagreed noting that hosting a November Air Show event on Pensacola Beach could set a standard for the Blue Angels to perform at that show when they also felt it would be a tribute to the veterans in the community since it is Veterans Day Weekend. SRIA staff has submitted an application to reserve the air space above Pensacola Beach for an air show, and will leave that request in place on the off chance that the Blue Angels can perform. The Board voted 4 to 1 to move forward with an Air Show in it. Gant was opposed. Tammy Bohannon was absent. The Full Board gave staff the green light to contract with Roger Ball for use of a storage building in Gulf Breeze. The lease is pending legal sign off. Board Chairman Thomas Campanella orchestrated a discussion regarding the newly formed Visit Pensacola, Inc. which has been conceptually approved by the County Commission to take over tourism promotion for Escambia County. SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee attended the County Commissions September 24 meeting and reported that the composition of the proposed Visit Pensacola, Inc. nine member board does not designate a delegate from Pensacola Beach. Visit Pensacola, Inc. will be redetails and bylaws for the County Commissions approval prior to December 5. The SRIA Board voted unanimously to send a letter to each County Commissioner and Visit Pensacola, Inc. requesting that the SRIA have an appointee on the nine member board to represent Pensacola Beach. Lee announced that he is petitioning the Northwest Florida Legislative Delegation to raise the monthly stipend allocated to each SRIA board member. The Escambia County Commissioners supported this request since the $400 monthly stipend has not changed since 1984. During the Committee meetings which preceded the Full Board, the Architectural and Environmental Committee voted unanimously to request a zoning change for Morgan Park. The previous zoning of retailrecreation will be changed to Preservation which protects the sensitive environmental nature of the park. Escambia Countys construction of an access road necessitated an encroachment into the park. This created public concern and precipitated the zoning request. Morgan Park was established by the Morgan Park Foundation dedicated to showcasing native plants while providing an ecoeducational experience. The Administrative Committee accepted Finance Director Dottie Fords report that Julys lease fee collections were slightly less than the previous year. The shortfall was likely due to inclement weather and a lackluster air show crowd. The collections totalled $2,008,115. The Administrative Committee received preliminary information and estimates on replacing the soon-to-be-dismantled poles used for hanging banners across Pensacola Beach Blvd. with an LED sign similar to the one located near the traffic light. SRIA Public Safety Director Bob West told the Committee that would cost between $45,000 and $60,000. Committee Member Dave Pavlock sent West back to the drawing board to seek a more elaborate, state-of-the-art color electronic sign to better serve the anticipated future needs of the Beach. This item will remain in Committee for further research. is parked, but the Labor Day Weekend Concert hosted by Cadillac Banks was unanimously ap proved for August 20, 2014. Gulf Coast Summerfest was deemed a success and according to the promoter is expected to attract 10,000 concert-goers next year. The goal is to make this the number one beachfront R&B music festival in the country, said Banks. Director of Administration, Robbie Schrock presented the Committee with a revised set of standards grant applicants must meet to qualify for SRIA monies. The SRIA has granted $63,500 under this new program in addition to the $317,350 it allocated in annual support to the SRI Triathlon, Chamber Fireworks, Beach Mardi Gras, Beach Air Show, Bands on the Beach, Mothers Day Concert, Pensacola Sports Association, Fiesta of Five Flags and United Way. The new standard caps the grant at $2,500. The Committee would like it amended so that an board members could increase the amount. This amendment will be made and brought back to the October Committee meeting. The Santa Rosa Island Au thority Full Board will meet Wednesday, October 9 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public. Agendas SRIA Only Has Eyes For Blues, Civilian Air Show Cancelled

Im sure the neighbors just love it. Happy Birthday to Lynn Cieutat! (Well, I know the number of course, but Im not telling.) She is Jesiahs Birthday Sister. In the birth date pool started by the SOBs, Lynn picked her own birth date and won the pool. We were celebrating Lynns birthday at the Sun Ray on the old Boardwalk. Mother-to-be Mel was having labor pains when she joined us to celebrate Lynns birthday. Sure enough, I had my Their birth (days) were on a Friday that year, and Mom and baby were released from the hospital on Sunday morning. Shes going to kill me for writing this, but they headed straight to Bobby Ds. And no she didnt drink any alcohol she just wanted to see people and show off that precious baby boy. They stayed outside on the deck and it was perfectly gorgeous weather. Bobby Ds was located in the heart (or rather, was the heart) of the Sandspur Republic back in those days of old. I really thought Bobby should have given Jesiah some sort of award or something. He was not even 48 hours old. Im pretty sure he wins for the Youngest Ever. They were really only there for about an hour at the most and you know that Back to the present, my last nual Birthday Trip to Biloxi to celebrate Elaine Mitchells birthday. Elaine, Cherie Neal-Munoz and I met Lois Jones and Sheila Courtney at the casino. It was a longer trip than usual to Biloxi. rains, several wrecks, road construction and (it seemed like) all the Law Enforcement in the tristate area. With Elaine driving and me navigating we make one heck of a good road trip team. So, you might think check-in would go smoothly once we for me; and Lois had already checked in, but the room Elaine had booked (with a connecting door to Lois room) was not carpet was being cleaned along with other things. We were beginning to think it might be some sort of crime scene. At least Lady Luck was on my side that day but she turned on me like a worm the next. Or maybe she just moved on to someone else. How many people do you think Lady Luck can cover in one casino? Does anyone have any idea how big or powerful she really is? Maybe Lady Luck decided she was more needed by Jeff Goudey since he and Paulette Provost had been in the same Casino for a couple of days with a couple more to go when they found out we were on the way. They were celebrating Jeffs Birthday. Happy Birthday Jeff! (Sure are lots of birthdays in September, huh?) I was playing a slot machine, or it was playing me when my cell phone rang. I thought it was my alarm to meet the others or one of them calling me. Before I could answer my new cell phone, the caller was already sent to voice mail. (Theres a lot of sliding involved with this phone and were still getting to know each other.) The message was from Maria at the Bank of the South (my bank) telling me they had a little dog running around the parking lot and Judy Lenderman thought it was our dog Peanut. By the time I got in touch with the Bank, my husband Bill had returned for Peanut. She had gone underneath a car when they tried to catch her, scared to death Im sure. I knew what had happened Bill had gone to the ATM machine and didnt notice Peanut leaving the car. To his credit, he noticed she was missing by the time he passed the Cop Shop. And I gotta say that Bank of the South has a special type of personal at many banks. Its just one of the many reasons theyve remained our Bill calls it the Bankery because you can also buy a delicious loaf of home-made bread from Judy on certain days of the week. (Not telling you the yourself and get on the list.) Another special service not offered at any Bank elsewhere. Anyway, I think poor Peanut will be a bit more careful when travelling with Bill. I hope yall enjoyed the Taste of the Beach as much as I did. It is growing and getting better each year. I loved Mermaid Parade and so did the crowd. It was a great joy and an honor to be on the stage as a judge for the dessert contest. I was certainly in great company, seated next to Celebrity Chef Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods on the Travel Channel along with Chefs Blake Rushing and Sam Trahan. I think I shocked Andrew Zimmern when I said he probably liked his bacon raw! He immediately protested the raw bacon. Well, he does eat some pretty strange things.

PAGE 8 Island Times October 1, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue... Recently, Panera Bread founder and CEO Ron Shaich decided to only allot himself $4.50 per day to purchase food. According to this multi-million aire, this is the average amount a person receives if part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), better known as food stamps. Currently, 48 million Americans take part in SNAP. That's 15 percent of our population. I watched Shaich's interview on CNN and followed his blog via LinkedIn. Shaich lived on chick pea stew and got too much pasta. He's was constantly worried his food supply would not last. He also realized carbs and not enough fresh fruits and vegetables. I once put myself on a 99 cents per day food budget. I was 10 and swam for Green Wave Aquatic Club in New Orleans. We competed for nine days in Florida in DisneyWorld. The team provided cereal, milk and peaches for breakfast every day. Lunch consisted of PB&J sandwiches, apples and chips. We ate dinner at a Bonanza Steak House almost every night where the child's meal including tax was only 99 cents. I made it nine days and had a whopping $91.09 to spend in DisneyWorld. I really haven't budgeted since. So, I have decided to challenge myself to see if I could feed myself for $4.50 per day. Please keep in mind that I am not making a political statement here, but a humanitarian one. I do not think any person in this country, for whatever reason, should go hungry. It's just one of those things that bothers me. The Colonel and Kid are not taking part. The Colonel predicts by day four, he will be my "Sugar, Wine, and Raw Oyster Daddy." The Kid's daily lunch lunch bag with a sandwich made from organic ingredients, organic fruit, pretzels, an energy bar and bottled water. I am making the following assumptions. (1) I have to pur chase my food at a store that could be accessible from lower income neighborhoods. (2) I don't have access to coupons because I can't afford to subscribe to a newspaper nor do I have a computer printer. (3) I have a working stove, refrigerator/freezer, and running water. I write my list and divide it into three categories: Must Have, Possible, and Luxury. Keep in mind, I haven't checked the prices in a grocery store since I put together a Budgeting for Baby program for young military wives touch with super market reality. While at the grocery, I chat with a friend of mine who is a cashier. She gives me some good advice after looking over my list and sends me to check the coupons at the front door to see if there is anything on sale. Her words to steer clear of the pasta and macaroni aisle resonate with me. I remember Ron Shaich worried about running out of his rationed spaghetti. I am so consumed with staying within my $31.50 budget that I run smack into a woman. I apologize and explain to her about my experiment. My stress level is starting to rise as very little is getting crossed off my list and my money is dwindling. I ask two separate store employees if there is tax on food. I know there isn't, but I am in every penny counts mode and nothing seems to be registering in my brain. I am starting to panic. It's not a good feeling. I can't imagine shopping like this on a weekly basis. I price check every item on my list before I put one thing in my basket. I am no longer brand loyal. Organic is only something I know how to spell. I feel the caffeine headache already starting. In the end, I spend $31.37 and here is what I come home with: one whole chicken, slow cook oatmeal; brown rice; dry black beans; dry lentils; corn tortillas; one dozen eggs, 1 bag of each frozen broccoli, green beans, mixed veggies, spinach, canned tuna (on sale), canned diced toma toes, canned salsa, two bananas, oil, shredded cheese (on sale), bag of carrots, and one lime. What I now know. I can't afford any spices, but if I were to continue this experiment beyond one week, I could purchase salt (44 cents) possibly the next week because the slow cook oatmeal ($2.48) makes 30 servings. I am only able to purchase the five apples because I am confident enough in my math and my selfesteem to inquire about the packaging. Loose apples on average are $1.27 per pound and I might be able to purchase two. A bag of apples, appears to be a better deal, but when I do the math, they are actually more than $1.30 per pound and I can't break open the bag, nor can I afford three pounds. I do notice there are some apples that are 97 cents per pound and are loose, but semi-packaged. The produce manager allows me to purchase only one pound, but I cannot use the fancy open sack they come in. I must write down the code and put them in a regular plastic bag to take to the cashier. In the next installment of the Lizzard's Tongue, I will reveal how I fared for the week. Was I truly able to exist on $4.50 per day? How nutritionally sound was my diet? What did I miss most from my normal food supplies? Until next time...

This tour was designed to bring people into Santa Rosa County during a slower time of the year, said fifth-year tour coordinator Karen Harrell. Over the past decade the tour has become a beloved part of the Fall season for locals and visitors alike who have discovered how many great treasures this county has to offer. Most of the events are free or low-cost and are tied to a charity. Area accommodations offer special rates and deals from beach rentals to RV parks, hotels and wooded cabins. After the 100 days of summer (high season) are over, rates drop and so do the crowds and it can be the perfect time to get away whether you live 100 miles away or just 10, Harrell said. We all need a change of scenery from time to time. The month-long tour has many staple events return, including the Jay Peanut Festival (Oct. 5-6), Munson Community Heritage Festival (Oct. 12-13), St. Rose of Lima Fall Festival (Oct. 11-13), West Florida Railroad Museums Depot Days (Oct. Festival (Oct. 5-6.) S.S. Dixon returns with its popular Haystackular (Oct. 18-Nov. 10) and Holland Farms will again offer its Pumpkin Patch and Hay Rides (Sept. 28-Nov. 2.)

Corner lot with incredible views. Two Master Suites. Gorgeous! Q: How long will Windows XP be supported? A: The latest news says that Microsoft will discontinue all support for Windows XP on April 8, 2014. There may be some question about whether or not that will happen. The problem that Microsoft is facing is this ---Windows XP is a still a very popular version of the Microsoft Windows operating system. It is still used in more than 30 percent of all Windows computers, despite the release of newer operating systems. They do not want to risk having customers switch to another vendors software. Also, many businesses still depend on Windows XP because their proprietary business software will not work well with Windows 7 or Windows 8. Now is the time to make sure that you have the latest the newest version of Windows XP. You should upgrade to the latest version (Service Pack 3) so that you can continue to be protected by the security updates that are currently available. To do that, open Internet Explorer, go to the Tools tab, and select Windows Updates. After Microsoft stops supporting Windows XP, it will soon products, such as printers and webcams, that will work with your computer. The manufacturers will eliminate XP as an option for using their products. They will benefit by reducing their development costs by not programming their products for use with the old software. Also, the computer manufacturers will eventually drop the downloadable software drivers for XP from their websites. Your installed Windows XP should continue to work well, even without direct support from Microsoft. All Windows XP software was removed from the store shelves when Vista was released, so it can no longer be purchased. But, you own a permanent license to use the software on one computer. If you ever have to re-install it, you must already own a Windows XP CD and license number. When that computer is put in the trash, your license expires.

Do you believe in the Tooth Fairy? I guarantee your small children do. My eldest grandchild lost her tooth a few weeks ago. I happened to be visiting her at the time it fell out. Subsequently, the huddle began with my daughter, son-in-law and me. We were not prepared. Tooth box or just put the tooth under the pillow? A true grand-parental crisis until the subject of money arose. How much is a tooth worth in 2013? Children around the country are paid from $3.30 up to $4.10. What happened to the quarter? Maybe it is time for us to believe again. We smile and entertain the notion that anything can happen and is possible. Believing creates greater purpose, happiness, wellness and of course, less stress. Reducing stress will greatly enhance our skin. Have you ever noticed a woman walking in the room and she just radiates. I am sure she believes in herself, has constant hope, and uses the ease and flow method. In real simple terms ease and flowmeans doing something intently or with focus without being or getting anxious or stressful over it. Please note the word intently equals the thought process: I truly intend to do it or I have decided to it. How can you work without working hard? How can you get anything done without working hard and without effort? Our world is extremely fast paced and there just never seems to be enough time. It is how women mentally address our tasks that determines our stress level. Working hard does not mean working in stress or feeling stressed and anxious. In order to get things done, we must put effort-action into our projects. But that effort-action does not have to feel like anxious or stressed effort. So what would the Tooth Fairy do? I am sure she would love herself and her skin a little more. Women arise! Lets empower ourselves to get back to stress free living and have a truly glowing, healthy skin. Lets BELIEVE in the Tooth Fairy again! Quaharini (until we meet again) Safarisu This years Gospel & Gumbo Fundraiser will take place on Sunday, October 27 at The Barkley House, 410 South Florida Blanca Street from 4-7 p.m. Enjoy gumbos, complimentary wine and beer and great music.

I always say we (the sport) have you. This was very evident last Saturday morning on Pensacola Beach. Every year TriGulfCoast (TGC), the triathlon club of Northwest Florida, puts on an event called the Members Only Triathlon (MOT). This is conducted on the Santa Rosa Island Triathlon (SRITRI) course and is, essentially, a dress rehearsal for the actual event on October 5. It follows summer-long training sessions that TGC puts on as part of the Mere Mortals program. The MOT was held last Saturday and, in the words of professional basketball player Right? Well, no, not really. This one was a little more serious. Nearly 130 participants racked their bikes, the course was carefully marked and the aid stations were manned and set. It had the feel of a serious race. The Gulf of Mexico was a little rough, there was sporadic Although some people were chatmost of those assembled seemed serious. You have to understand that many of these triathletes meaning the SRI TRI will be their have doubts and they question if theyve done enough to prepare. For several who never believed they could succeed at triathlon, this might be the best summer theyve ever had. The command was given to go and they advanced into the blue-green water. Some ran, strolled in feeling their way and getting their water legs under them. One-by-one they arrived at a depth where they could start stroking and soon 132 people buoy which looked to be about 175 yards offshore. The athletes stretched out although several were swimming side-by-side. and headed toward the beach. Those of us standing on the shore were yelling encouragement and telling them how great they looked. Some staggered out Transition. Then they were out on their bicycles, a variety of machines, some like the bikes you had when you were a kid and some were very expensive and professionallooking. The temperatures were starting to rise as was the humidity and the sun shone brightly. Soon the leaders came charging for the 9 miles out and then blasting back as fast as they could for 9 miles. The experienced, quickly racked their bikes and The other bikes continued to stream in. The first runner was done with the event before the last cyclist racked his bike. We celebrated and then settled in to plete the course, but some more than others. One person leaped as he crossed the line thats right, LEAPED. Finally, the last two athletes came in and they and there were smiles all around. Meanwhile, I was thinking we got them. No, it was not an Ironman (140.6 miles), Half-ironman (70.3) or even an Olympic distance triathlon, but it validated trated on all summer.

Sun: Live Music 5 to 7 p.m. Perfect way to wrap up your weekend Though there are a few nests left to hatch, the 2013 sea turtle patrols have now ceased. It was a challenging year for patrollers due to weather conditions, but we are grateful there were no major storms which could have resulted in the loss of multiple nests as has happened in the past. tasks for us this year was trying to predict when hatches might occur. Heavy rain throughout much of the summer cooled the sand, resulting in longer incubation times than the average 60 days, especially for nests laid in the ally the rain compacted sand into a thick crusty layer over many nests, making it a tedious process for hatchlings to break their way sounds of activity in the nests to hear how close they were to emerging. As sea turtle hatchlings dig their way out of a nest, sand trickles down from the top layer of baby turtles to those at the bottom of the clutch. Tap, tap, tap they push the sand beneath them as they slowly rise to the top in an elevator effect. In soft sand, a depression forms immediately above the area where they will emerge which alerts us that the push to freedom and make their march to the sea. With a layer of compacted sand above them, there may be no signal that there is a mass hatch impending. I have witnessed a surprise soup can collapse on two occaat a nest at 75 days incubation another rainy season -fearing it was lost since it was two weeks overdue and there had been no sounds of activity. As a slow steady rain set in, I glanced up at the sky for just a moment to see if there was a break ahead and when I looked back down there was a perfectly round collapse the size and depth of a soup can, with a tiny head, beaked nose and two small eyes peering up at me. The small scout, scoping out a brief sojourn through my world, The last hatch I attended recently was very special. I had screened a nest near Park East at twilight and came back to check on it after dark since it was inactive at screening. I saw the I was alone, I walked over to a group of young people to see if they would like to assist. It Breeze High School and once they were assured I was only sea turtle crazy, they wholeheartedly embraced the experience. I want to recognize some very special High School for a job well done: Langley Head, Emily Lively, Kaya Dunn, Nick Dugger, Megan Cronin, Matt Hawthorne and Benji Diaz! It is a gift in itself when patrollers get to witness the face of someone seeing dozens of hatchout of a nest and racing toward the reflection of moonlight on the water. The miracle of nature is not lost on observers. It can have a great impact. The young people who helped that night were troupers as they chaperoned out encouragement and amazed as the each one was swept away by a foamy surf into its new world. Perhaps in twenty years time or more some of them may bring their own children to the beach one night and share the story of how they once made a difference for a nest of threatened loggerof their sandy nest for the freedom of the sea.
