It goes on and on, always in the same tradition like Christmas or the Tooth Fairy or Volkswagon beetles. Kissed or unkissed, ugly or gorgeous, happy or sad, smart or dumb, Sweet Sixteen is a cherished event! Even in the freedom of todays lifestyles, sweet sixteen never becomes sweet thirteen or would you believe sweet ten? The sixteen syndrome, the landmark, the turning point, the fork in the roadwhatever it stands for, remains eternally the same, time which can never be repeated. (Perhaps, it is because it is almost the last time a girl will admit how old she is.) My youngest daughterI could call her my baby, but that would be cause from matricide on Ariola Drivearrived at sixteen last week with about the same amount of fanfare Princess Caroline received at her wedding. As a beginning, everyone seemed to know that Liz was sixteen on October 16. Everywherein Neros, on the Bay Bridge, at PJC at a football game, on the telephone, people were congratulating her as if she had just been elected sheriff of Escambia County. I decided she had hired an airplane and hung out a sign, Liz Waters is sixteen today. Somehow, she managed to get the message to about ten thousand people without running an ad in The Islander. What does the mother of a sweet sixteen do? Everything. What do you want for your birthday? I asked innocently. Liz did not even mention gifts that she knew were outside the realm of possibility. I think I would like to have a little costume party, she said. Not too bad. Not bad at all. A costume party. By the way Mom, get me to compare her idea of small and my idea of small, I nevertheless, brought her the invitations, dispensed to her friendsthree of whom regretted. The others could hardly wait for the party, and several even agreed to bring visiting cousins, other friends and an older brother who had his drivers license. I wanted to go hide under the bed until sweet sixteen faded, but I knew I didnt have time. I astonished myself by agreeing to all the conditions that were thrust upon me. Like we are a having a costume party with a Halloween theme. I drove to Cantonment to purchase two bales of hay and to an outdoor the rugs, dusted the furniture, and hauled enough hot dogs and buns out of the store to begin my own restaurant. I installed blue bulbs and hung lanterns, paper spiders, plastic skeletons, and string webs around the house. (All this after I had broomed down every spider web and every spider in the place just the day before!) The party began at six oclock. The guests began arriving at four. I put on a mask to hide the circle under my eyes and the fact I did not have time to put on make-up. The crowd thought I was hilariouslook at Lizs momho-ho! All I kept thinking about was escape and the opportunity came. I had forcorner six blocks away from the house, I could no longer hear the stereo which had been blasting for over three straight hours. The lack of vibes got me. I thought I had passed out. I pinched myself and I screamed so I drove on to Bravely, I returned to my house, elbowed my way through to Sweet Sixteen. Then, I ran downstairs, trying to escape the the piano and three somebodys throwing darts. The downstairs bedroom was full of girls, combing their hair, looking for bobby pins, putting on cowboy hats and tying their tennis shoes. So, I went outside and sat on a bale of hay and tried to strike up a conversation with the scarecrow. The party ended at 11 and the last guests left shortly after midnight. I shut my eyes, slid across the living room on a hot dog bun and collapsed in my bed. I fell asleep and had a nightmare about a six foot tall cupcake that threw me in a lake full of punch, where I kept trying to swim away from every rock group in the world. I awakened in fear. I put my head under the pillows. I could not go out and face that morning after. Hi Mom, Liz called. I crept stealthily to my door and opened it. The living room glistenedprobably Liz had thrown the whole works on the kitchen floor. No so. She had cleaned the house. It was quiet and cheerful and she was making a cup of coffee for me. So, listen, kid. Its all downhill now. Youre on your way to becoming an old lady. Maybe, youll even have a sweet sixteen of your own somedayand perhaps you will be fortunate enough to learn something I have known for sixteen yearssome of us moms have all the luck!

He knows a little about a lot of things, including country music. Although he bemoaned the fact that Garth Brooks has not produced many new hits recently, he knew that the famous country music star was the answer to the question about a bar-bouncing wife meeting star-crossed night. The story is that Sandy Mahl got in a little altercation with another gal over a guy. She was put out of the nightclub by the young college student/bouncer Garth Brooks, who later started dating her. Sounds like the making of a good country song. So, an Island Times t-shirt will go to country music fan Tim Pike. Shirtless Kathy Christoff and her new friend named Google, were not quick enough to beat Trivia Tim. Maybe next time KC. Another shirtless gal, Lupie Rael, contacted the TM with a not so trivial coincidence. Lupie owns a set of bar stools which were the topic of a previous trivia question. Lupie did not know the origin of the aquatic metal sculptured bar seats, but hoped that ownership would garner her a t-shirt. The cheeky TM likes the note, but wont give up the shirt. Unless you knew that the bar stools had been for Sunset Bar and Grill drinkers, you shall remain shirtless. Stay tuned Lupie. Perhaps you will know the answer to this one. The Trivia Master has been languishing in a historic area of downtown Pensacola Beach; paging through mostly incomplete records in dusty tomes. Researching the commercial heritage of brick and mortar with a colorful Island history. An Irishman, a helicopter pilot, shopkeepers, rock legends and winos have been part of the story. So, the TM poses this challenge for the knowing and seeking: Name the two current businesses in the location which once housed Bills Island Surf Shop, Sals T-Shirts, the Foul Deck and Robbies Yum Yum Tree. Remember, you must name both businesses, because if you do, you could possibly be the proud owner of an Island Times t-shirt. A prize that is not available for purchase, not even on eBay. Send your answer with Trivia in the subject line to islandtimes@bellsouth.net. Include your name and phone number with your answer. Deadline to answer is Tuesday, October 22. Good luck. DGs DO GOODPensacola Beach resident Mary Claus announced that Greeks invaded the Island September 25. Delta Gamma Fraternity Alumnae President Louise Videau brought alums to Hemingways for an evening social. Joining Videau and Claus were Kathy Middleton, Mary Pat Forge, Gayle Crume, Diane Thompson, Eleanor Hoen, Katie Andress, Stephanie Cannon and Sarah Hand. A special toast was raised to Sister and Gulf Breeze High teacher Diane Folse, who was unable to attend. Locally, the group supports a variety of charitable causes including Prevention of Blindness and Education for the Blind. FROM THE DESERTClaire Marcey trekked across the white sands of Pensacola Beach renewing friendships and enjoying the Taste of the Beach festival in September. Although Claire hangs her hat in Arizona, she still claims Pensacola Beach as her home. She sends a big hello and blessing to all her beach friends.RECIPE FOR SUCCESSAmy Depew found an old friend in a Garden and Gun magazine feature. David Norman has opened a new restaurant, and was featured in the upscale mag. Davids parents are Fran and the late George Norman. Readers will recall that George wrote the cooking column in The Islander Newspaper. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

PAGE 5 Island Times October 15, 2013 The Santa Rosa Island Authority Board unanimously approved the commendation presented to Director of Public Safety Bob West, center, for his accomplishments during his decade of service to the Island. The presentation came during their October 9 Full Board meeting. Surrounding West (L to R) are: former Senior Lifeguard Andrew Edwards who now is the SRIA Events and HR Director, Senior Lifeguard Alex Johnson and Water Safety Supervisor Dave Greenwood. Beach Commissioner Hosts Town Hall MeetingEscambia County District Four Commissioner Grover Robinson will host a Town Hall Meet ing, Monday, October 28 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Santa Rosa Island Authority boardroom. Robinson, who has served as the Beachs commissioner since 2006, will give an update on the RESTORE funds and projects. The fund is designated to restor ing the Gulf Coasts ecosystem and economy after the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. Robinson will also make a RESTORE presentation at the Pensacola Beach Advocates October 21 Annual Meeting. As in the past, the Commissioner would like to hear from his constituents at this meeting on any topics of concern. He phone at 850-595-4940. The meeting is open to the public. Authority Board Approves Greener IslandThe Santa Rosa Island Authority moved one step closer to forever protecting Morgan Park by voting at their October 9 Full Board meeting to begin the rezoning process. The Park, located on Santa Rosa Sound, was created to showcase native plants in an eco-educational setting. The proposed change from Recreation-Retail to Conservation would protect the park from development. The proposed Soundside access road from Quietwater to the Bob Sikes Fishing Bridge will encroach on the Park approximately three feet. A Quasi-Judicial hearing to address the rezoning is set for November The green theme continued as Board members reviewed and voted to allow sable palms to be planted on SRIA property. The Island Authority owns two parks and 12 residential lots on Via de Luna which are slated to receive plantings as part of the Via de Luna landscaping project. Leaseholders bordering the north side of the street are being contacted for permission to allow the landscape contractor to plant palms on their leasehold. The sable palms cannot be installed in the right-of-way because their future height would interfere with power lines. The pindo palms will be planted in the right-of-way. The request letter was writert Rinke, who has championed the Via de Luna landscape plan tion Fund, which has dedicated excess lease fees paid by Portoproject. The leaseholders will not be charged for the palms, nor will they be responsible for watering or maintaining the plants. The contractor, Wallace Company, is guaranteeing the vitality of the stallation, Wallace is obligated to water the palms. According to the letter, the palms will survive and adapt without additional watering The project will be complete in November and will encompass more than 1500 sable palms and 600 pindo palms along with grasses, ground cover and The total cost of the project is $575,000 and is meant to give leaseholders a landscaping buffer and create an island theme for Just like each leaseholder on the north side of Via de Luna, the SRIA must contact The Wallace Company with their approval. The board voted approval with one dissenting vote from Board Chairman Thomas Campanella, who did not like the planting patterns. Additionally, the Board is researching the development of a Senior Park to engage snowbirds and active retirees to add to the amenities on the Island. The Santa Rosa Island Au thority Committees will meet Wednesday, October 23 at 5 p.m. Meetings are open to the public.

Way back in elementary school, I never could understand how Christopher Columbus could discover a place where people already lived. Im sure the Native Americans agree with me. And while I never got a teacher to agree to my way of thinking, neither did any teacher ever convince me I was wrong. Even as a working adult, though I enjoyed the fact that it is a holiday, I have never actually celebrated Mr. Columbus or his day. I am glad that I am an American and very Blessed to live in this great Country. Bill and I are taking a little holiday ourselves. Its just a short trip to Georgia to visit my sisters. Ive been missing them a lot and my oldest sister Brenda Dawson was diagnosed nearly two years ago with early onset Dementia. She has come to visit me nearly every summer (and some years more than once) in the 30-something years Ive lived here and is no longer capable of making the long trip. I cant imagine that if the place where you have lived your entire life becomes suddenly unfamiliar and scary, how you could possibly take the chance in a less familiar place. And so from now on I will be going to visit her as much as I can. Its a strange and scary illness because no one has No matter how long I live it continues to amaze me how far our world has travelled in science and medicine but how few real cures have been found for our major diseases. Since Im not skilled in either area, all I can do is continue to pray and hope all the questions. At least, Im good at that. I am also beginning to get a reputation as being a good Judge of food anyway. I gotta say that is one heck of a nice job. I was asked to be a judge for this years Seafood Festival in Pensacola. Most of yall know that I have been a judge for the Island Times sponsored How Sweet IT Is Dessert Contest at the Taste of the Beach for the last couple of years. That is certainly one sweet job, but thankfully we had more judges this year. That meant I only tasted 6 or so desserts in two categowhen I judged what seemed like Oh Im not complaining because its all delicious. But I judged twenty-three (yes 23) dishes at the Seafood Festival. That is a lot of food even with small bites. I was so totally stuffed when it was over, I waddled around with Nicole Stacey and a couple of other judges handing out the different colored ribbons. I mean really, waddled, like a duck, a very large duck with very short legs. But, I would do it again in a heartbeat. Something else that always bothered me has to do with the Pledge of Allegiance. Every morning in school we put our hand over our heart and recited the Pledge of Allegiance while facing the American Flag. I dont the Pledge of Allegiance itself. I have always been patriotic and believe everyone should Pledge Allegiance in every school in every city in our Nation until you are no longer in any school at all. I love it and it still warms my heart to say it today. For me the problem is not so much the words that say, One Nation, indivisible but that our litical parties which immediately causes division of the people. I never had a teacher that could ther. So, in protest I have joined a brand new Party which is private thus far. I hold the Honored Rank of the Highest Mermaid of the Mermaid Brigade. Now thats a good party and while I wont give away any political secrets, lets just say that parties in general consume a large portion of this Party. Happy Birthday to granddaughter Quincy Rowe (aka my SissyGirl) who turns 8 October 18. Pappy and I will miss her party because we will be enjoying the second half of our Twenty-Fifth Anniversary gift... a trip Ill also be missing the American Legions Putt Putt since the late Chuck LeBum LOignon founded the fundraising event. That means I have no chance to win the big, beautiful by Lois Jernigan. Thats one tradition Lois refuses to give up and Im sure the American Legion is grateful for the money she raises. I will, however continue to sponsor my Queen Shugah sign. Mark your calendar for October 19 and go play some Putt Putt. Its time to get your Halloween gear together for the Krewe of Wrecks Halloween Party and we have as many entries as last year. Once again I challenge all the Krewes to join the Wrecks in order to ensure the continuance of the Mardi Gras Parade. If youre not in a krewe already, this is the place to start for sure. Youll learn the history of Mardi Gras on the Island and the work it takes to make Mardi Gras such a special and thriving season for our community. Even if youre in another krewe, a $30 membership in the Wrecks is a small price to pay for everything they offer. You are not under any obligation to do more. Of course, more is always welcome. Kids love holidays, they really love Halloween. And a lot of them enjoy helping in the kitchen. My SissyGirl does and shes getting very good at it. Soon enough, Ill just sit on the couch and wait for her to bring me our favorite dinner Pancakes, sausage and scrambled eggs. You cant start teaching them early enough. So, this weeks recipe is for the little ones in your life. Its simple, easy and delicious. The scent will always remind them of cool fall days, Halloween, the Fair and special time spent with you in the kitchen! So, lets cook Easy Caramel Apples 3 4 juicy Apples (your favorite type) 1 large bag caramel candy Slice apples in half and core. Let the children unwrap all the caramels while youre slicing apples. Place apple halves on large cupcake pan (keeps apples from rolling over). The kids can put 2 caramel candies on top of each apple. Help them place apples in 350 degree preheated oven. Cook just enough for caramel to melt without cooking the apples (5 minutes slice if desired. Yummy way to eat caramel apples and kids love anything they help make. Enjoy, share and join the Krewe of Wrecks. See ya in the kitchen.

Toll Free: 877-889-8822 5177 Elmira Street Milton Facing the Courthouse916-9000 I recall hearing of a famous Mexican bank robber around the turn of the 20th century named Jorge Rodriguez. It was his practice to slip over the border and back into his native land. This became such a problem that the Texas Rangers assigned a whole posse to try to capture this bandit. One morning a Texas Ranger saw Jorge making his way into this country. He witnessed him robbing a bank and then stealth ily followed him back over into Mexico to his hometown. As Jorge was relaxing in a cantina, the Texas Ranger slipped in, got the drop on him, and put his big .45 to his ear. Then he said to him loudly, I know who you are, Jorge Rodriguez, and I know what you have been doing. Unless you give me back all the money you have taken from those Texas banks, I am going to blow your brains out. However, unfortunately, Jorge did not know a word of English and the Texas Ranger did not know Spanish, so there they were, two adults at a total impasse communicating. About that time, a little Mexican came up and said, I know both languages, Ill translate for you, and proceeded to put the Rangers proposal into language that Jorge could understand. He answered nervously, Tell the big Texas Ranger that I want to live, that I havent spent a single cent of that money. If he will go to the town, will face north, and count down seven stones, there will be a loose one. Pull it out and behind it he will There are millions of dollars there untouched. With that, the little translator got a wry look on his face and turned to the Ranger and said, Jorge Rodriguez is a brave man. He says he is ready to die. You see, what you dont know can hurt you. Ask Jorge Rodriguez! Had he only learned a little English! Or the Texas Ranger had he only learned a little Spanish. It was the one who did know that came out ahead. I think it is important that we all come to terms with the fact that this is the way life works. There always has been and always will be a high premium placed on the competence that comes from knowing. It follows, therefore, that you cannot know too much about your chosen area of work or about the other realms of knowledge that impinge upon your existence. There is really no substitute for competence. No matter how intensely you may desire to do something or how much physical vitality you may possess, if you do not know the facts and therefore how to do a certain thing, you will be frustrated. Please take the time and get to know a little bit more about Jesus himself and our God.

PAGE 8 Island Times October 15, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue... Last week I challenged myself to eat nutritiously remaining within a budget of $31.50, the average amount of assistance a single person would receive from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Could I do it? Yes. Did I do it? Kind of. Sort of. Oh, who am I kidding, I failed miserably. 33 cents in various parking lots and on the beach throughout the week. I add that to my 38 cents of change and promptly spend it. That was only the beginning of my good fortune. It appears that if I want my husband, The Colonel, to take me out all I have to do is say that I am trying to reign in my spending on food. Three out of the seven days last week, he attempted to take me out to dinner. Day 1: I am President Her bert Hoover in my kitchen. I have some part of a chicken in every pot, pan and crockpot. I am steaming brown rice and soaking black beans. I have cordoned off a space in the refrigerator as mine and commandeered most of the plastic storage containers. I am feeling quite strong after a healthy breakfast of slow cooked oats and a banana. My neighbor from Cull man, AL is visiting. Veronica is a nutritionist and a counselor. She looks over my menus, notes my planned caloric intake and my ratio of carbs to proteins to fats. I am good to go. By afternoon, the caffeine withdrawals hit. I wish I had salt. Day 2: My friends inform me of where I can get a free cup of coffee. I am in need of salt and have found a dime. I think my luck is changing. I can't afford salt at the grocery that offers free coffee. I am three cents short. I walk to the other store and purchase my salt while trying to pry that imaginary drill press off my skull. I am well fed, but must look miserable. The Colonel offers to take me to happy hour -two for one Margaritas. He uses the rationale that he only wants one margarita, so I might as well come along an drink the "free" second one. I go and hope that the tequila might temper the headache. It doesn't. Day 3: I wake up feeling great. Caffeine cravings are gone and I discover I have a mint plant. I start making mint tea every morning to go with my breakfast. I realize I have 30 servings of slow cook oats and start to ex periment on ways to cook oats. I end up tossing a cup of raw oats with a teaspoon of canola oil and a smidgen of salt, then baking at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Oh so good and has almost an almond because I recently found out I was allergic to almonds and now have an inexpensive substitute. I make green bean "oatmondine" as part of my dinner. Day 4: Not sure what Tropical Storm Karen is going to do and I get a little panicky. I have to be able to cook and even more important, I need refrigeration for my cooked food and chicken broth. I have a banana, a few apples, one can of tuna and tortillas to live on if I have to evacuate or lose power. The house is secure. The sweat is pouring down my back. The Colonel pulls out our bikes and puts an ice cold beer in my hand. Really? I go pre-hurricane haywire and even turn into a Songwriters my husband, my friends and even my brother-in-law. Each with a different rationale as to why I can. All are gratuitous, but I barter with my husband. Now I completely understand how these young ladies end up with more than one mouth to feed. My husband also shares a slice of pizza and a Greek salad with me. I've already eaten dinner -this is now just social, mindless calories. Day 5: I get a text message from Amy Cheshire Depew: Sidelines. Miami. Come down. The Colonel comes with me. I am into him for another beer and three hot wings, one sliver of celery, four loaded nachos. Plus I help myself to too many plain chips from Amy. I notice that even though they are quite delicious, it's neither the chips or the wings that I really want. It's the fresh tomatoes, lettuce and celery. I have frozen broccoli with my dinner. I hate frozen broccoli. Day 6: I wake up riddled with ing out my week. I can't pay back the beers, but I can pay back the food out of my stash. I have a little spare change left and strike a deal with my family, I will make black bean and lentil chili if they will sell me 27 cents worth of spices. I need a little cumin, garlic and chili powders. Today, I feed my husband breakfast (spinach and cheese omelet with tomatillo salsa and 1/2 an apple) and my entire family lunch, chili and homemade tortilla chips topped with cheese. The Kid also snacks on a bowl of chicken and black bean vegetable soup. Day 7: With my experiment coming to an end, I share the last of my eggs and cheese with The bacon and fresh fruit. For lunch, The Colonel and I share the can of tuna and the last two servings of one of my many soup concoctions that I made throughout the week. By dinner time, I look at my remaining supplies. The obvious -oats, salt, oil -along with one serving of soup and yogurt, 1/2 bag of black beans, one carrot and two servings of frozen broccoli. I learned a lot about myself and maybe even took a tiny baby step in the shoes of fellow Americans from senior citizens to newly divorced moms to the unemployed to the lazy who depend on SNAP. I don't know how they do it. Food is a lot more than just nutrition on a plate. For me, it represents a time to gather with family and friends to nurture one another both physically and emotionally. I am just so grateful for all the I have been blessed with including the inheritance of my mom's soup making gene. Until next time...

The Pensacola Beach Elks Lodge Veterans Day Parade is set to roll Monday, November 11 at 2 p.m. west down Via de Luna from Avenida 10 to the Gulfside Pavilion. Groups and krewes who would like to participate can pick up an entry form at the Pensacola Beach Visitors Information Center or go online to www.PensacolaBeachChamber. com. Completed forms should be returned to the Visitors Center by Wednesday, November 6 at 5 p.m. The Beachs parade is to salute our veterans, of all branches of service in all eras. A tribute that should be fitting of their sacrifice for our nation, said Goudey. We want to put together a parade with that in mind. There is no charge to participate in the Veterans Day Parade but there are a few rules which must be met. Groups who are walking or marching must be able to keep pace with the parade since it does not stop until it disbands. Mardi Gras krewes and clubs are encouraged join the parade, but floats must have an All American theme, decorations and throws must be red, white and blue. Candy is prohibited. Parade entrants should check in by noon. The parade line up will be along Avenida 10 near the Springhill Suites. The parade begins precisely at 2 p.m. After the parade, spectators and participants are invited to the Veterans Day ceremonies at the Gulfside Pavilion. The program includes patriotic songs, speeches and the Empty Chair Ceremony to remember POWs and MIAs. For more information, contact Parade Chairman Jeff Goudey at 850-291-6957.

A: As soon as Microsoft released its Windows 8 software last year, replacing Windows 7, the company had to begin working on improvements. Those improvements are in the next release of Window 8, now known as Windows 8.1, which is scheduled to be released around October 18. Windows 8 has certainly not received great reviews since its release last year. Some users were hoping that the upcoming Windows 8 update would return some of the look and feel of Windows 7 and Windows XP, but that is not likely to happen. Windows 7 was a very stable and easy-to-use operating system. The look of the new Windows 8.1 software is still quite different, at least on the initial screens, from Windows 7. The Start icon was replaced by a series of rectangular icons that represent the programs and features of the system. The appearance and function of those icons mirrored the look of the icons found in Metro, which is the Microsoft software found in some mobile devices. The focus seems to be on enhancing the users web experience and on social interaction. However, not all users have that as a priority and would like to return to the old standard that has served them so well for doing traditional computer tasks. Those users are not interested in using most of the functions represented by the block of rectangular icons. Windows 8.1 will be available for sale in two versions. Users can choose from a standard version for around $120 or a professional version for around $200. The Windows 8.1 update will be available free of charge for existing Windows 8 users. It should be available as an automatic update through Windows Update in the main Control Panel. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

As I always say, every problem we encounter in life is just a wrinkle. However, a hurricane truly is a problem. Thank you to all of our Island Royalty. The Queen Shugah with her awesome MOJO ordered Tropical Storm Karen to run away in fear. Freedom is the most valuable thing we possess. With Karen potentially hurtling down upon us our freedom to do as we pleased was compromised. Everyone has his or her Hurricane Box packed. Right? Contents of that box should include your facial skin care products, sunscreen and important documents, among other things. Just like a Hurricane Box, a Safe Deposit Box is an important part of our way of life. Do you know what to keep in your Safe Deposit Box? (Your most valued documents dont belong stashed in your sock drawer.) What to keep in a SafeDeposit Box: Insurance policies; birth, marriage, and death certificates, adoption papers, divorce decrees, deeds, titles, mortgage papers and lease contracts, Military records, citizenship papers, stock and bond certificates, a videotape or DVD inventory of your home and all its contents. Also add items that have sentimental value or would be difficult and costly to replace. I have my adult childrens baby teeth and cards that profess their love for their Mum. Must admit I bring these lovies out occasionally to remind them. What not to keep in a Safe Deposit Box: Originals of wills, trusts, and power-of-attorney documents; Medical care directives; and funeral or burial instructions. These items should be kept near your hurricane box in a fireproof/ waterproof safe. Make sure your attorney, your close relatives or friends have copies of these documents. Quick Tip: Keep a separate list of the items in your safe deposit box and make a habit of checking the box at least once a year. Safarisu suggests this to the readers so you wont forget where you hid the key. (Yes, I spent two weeks searching the house for those dang keys. You guessed it. They were hidden in a sock in my sock drawer.) Lets toast the wrinkles in our life. But, we still have our Freedom.

I had watched the weather forecasts and friends had forwarded me spaghetti models depicting hazardous tropical conditions in the Caribbean and in the Gulf of Mexico. Other friends had called, texted or emailed to commiserate. Registered athletes were starting to communicate with me as well. Most were along the lines of I wouldnt want to be in your position right now, but what are you going to do? There was a tropical disturbance called L southeast of the Yucatan Peninsula that looked like a problem, maybe a big problem. The Santa Rosa Island Triathlon, which I had been working on for a year (since the conclusion of 2012s very successful event), was scheduled for the weekend. The permits were all in place, insurance policies were set and all event fees had been paid. We had received all the goods, premiums and stuff from our vendors right on time. The service providers, heavy equipment, food, law enforcement, refreshments, ambulances, EMT crews, water craft, safety personnel and nearly 300 volunteers were all scheduled in the detailed plan and everything seemed in place. Sound systems, music, hotel conference space and massage therapists were all ready to go. This was to be the 18th annual event and all indications were that it would be our best. We weather with favorable winds and a calm, warm Gulf of Mexico and we expected those same conditions. Thousands of extra dollars had been spent enhancing the race and we were doing everything we could to ensure the athletes would have a great experience. Then 97L started to gain some momentum. We have been through this many times before and we know the weather in the Gulf of Mexico can turn on a dime, stop, strengthen or dissipate. But, in the back of our minds, we remember other systems that came our way with evil intent. I still think about Ivanand Dennis and Rita and even throw in Opal and Erin and other named storms. So, we continued to prepare, but in the back of our minds, we felt anxiety and cold trepidation. 97L did form up and became Tropical Storm Karen. As quickly as that happened, wind gained speed to 65 mph. A hurricane wind speeds of 90 mph were documented. Now all indications were that it was coming toward our immediate area on Saturday morning or at least by the afternoon. On Thursday at mid-morning, we met with government enforcement and emergency personnel and they all recommended cancelling the event. Taking into account the 1200 triathletes coming from 26 states, we agreed and set about to inform everyone and to undo all our planning and work. It was a real punch in the gut, a body blow to all of us. We received lots of words of encouragement and understanding. For those, we are very appreciative. We have also received severe and extreme criticisms and complaints. Our character has been questioned as have our motives. The internet being what it is, we have been lambasted in many corners. I have been involved in producing events for 25 years in the Northwest Florida community. We have put on concerts, festivals, races, tournaments, fund-raising banquets and extravaganzas, and a myriad of other events. We have had our tremendous supporters and our extreme critics. To the latter I present the words of Theodore Roosevelt: It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.Beach resident Sky Haynes posted one of the fastest Junior Varsity times for Gulf Breeze High School at the October 8 Cross Country counting down the days until their favorite service member returns from Afghanistan.

Sun: Live Music 5 to 7 p.m. Perfect way to wrap up your weekend Our 2013 sea turtle season ended dramatically this year. I had driven to Tennessee for a few days to be with my mother who was facing surgery and I was focused on getting her home and back on her feet. It was a shock to realize, on the very day I brought her home from the hospital, that a storm was brewing which had Pensacola Beach in its crosshairs. in cases such as this: stay with mother or get someone to check in on her and head home to prepare the house for a possible hurricane. At about the same time, in addition to the impending storm, our access to most of the remaining nests was impacted by the government shutdown. Certain areas of the National Seashore which we patrol were gated and locked. Only the nests on Pensacola Beach and the Santa Rosa area were accessible, but most of the remaining nests were not. Government workers (biologist and bio-techs) in charge of the Sea Turtle Monitoring Program were furloughed along with other non-essential staff; even their phones were turned off. You can imagine what a terrible position it was for those dedicated to safeguarding tiny hatchlings. The night before I returned home, I was relieved to hear that the last nest on Pensacola Beach, which was that of a green sea turtle, had hatched while two of our volunteer patrollers were present. The hatch rate has not been as good for our handful of green sea turtles nests as it has been for our loggerheads this year. Green hatches have hovered around 50 percent, so each endangered green hatchling we are able to save is precious. Generally after a nest hatches it is screened for three successive nights in case stragglers emerge. With no access to the screens we needed and no access to check those farthest from us, the last nests remained unscreened and unattended. But, knowing the Park employees had their hands tied, volunteers quietly stepped up to monitor the nests in the areas where we could: Pensacola Beach, Santa Rosa area of Gulf Islands National Seashore, and one small public area at Perdido Key. the island, I went out to the green nest site and listened for sounds of stragglers. The surf and wind noise was very loud and I could hear nothing. I decided to listen one more time the next night around sunset, which was the third night after the initial hatch. I was surprised to hear strong scratching sounds. With the wind and surf still howling and pounding, I knew at least one hatchling had to be near the surface in order for me to hear it so well. It took a couple of hours and a bit of patience, but it was one more tiny miracle of nature this season as seven vigorous green sea turtle hatchlings made their way up and across the sand into the Gulf of Mexico. It seems a bit embarrassing to admit it makes me cry, but to see something so small prevail against incredible odds seems like a metaphor of our own struggles in life. Sometimes the energy for one last push toward your goal and suddenly you attain it. There is no better feeling than to overcome our obstacles and succeed. I have good news and bad news my readers. Im sad to say that we will not be able to share the updated hatchlings numbers with you until the government shut-down comes to an end. There is no access to the reported stats. You can be assured, will be shared with you as soon as possible through the Island Times. The good news is that the green sea turtle nest was able to be assessed the night after my seven hatchlings emerged. The assessment was important since this nest, PB 8021, was in situ (a natural nest, not relocated), so we did not know how many eggs it contained until the process was completed. It held 162 eggs in total and a surprise of 10 green hatchlings ready to be rescued one last miracle on Pensacola Beach! For 2013, Turtle Trax bids you farewell. Lights out!
