At the outset, I really hate to admit this, but I have lived all these years, completely unaware that the Golden Ratio was unquestionably playing a major role in my life. I confess my ignorance because I just discovered the impact of this formula this week. I am also willing to confess my ignorance because there seems to be a huge segment of Beach population who dont know the Golden Ratio from Joes Feet. I checked old dictionaries, new dictionaries, encyclopedias, all kinds of references in architecture, painting, advertising graphics and never once did I run across the magic words, Golden tions for Golden Ragwort, Gold Digger and the Golden Fleece.) Apparently, Jason and the Argonauts never heard of the Golden Ratio either, so that made me feel a lot better. Here, we goThe Golden Ratio is the ratio in which the relationship between the two parts is roughly the same as between one part and the whole. Roughly, that corresponds to the fraction 5/8 or a ratio of 5 to 8. (Do not confuse this information with 9 to 5 and Dolly Parton. Thats another kind of ratio of its own kind.) out by yourself because this 5 to 8 affects all kinds of stuff. It allegedly abounds in nature, architecture and classical paintings. I queried three artists who stared at me vacantly when I asked if they employed the Golden Ratio in their works. I did stumble across one professor of communications at the University of West Florida who did teach the rule of 5 to 8 in advertising layout classes. He is now working for a daily newspato-eighting for all he is worth. I hope Tampa appreciates him. Now it has recently been discovered that the Golden Ratio is used by newborn babies to identify their moms. They do not look for blue eyes and blonde hair and turned up noses. Those little seven pound bundles the eyebrows, eyes, nose, and eight proportions. According to psychiatrists, the Golden Ratio has been proven by experiments to be particularly harmonious and pleasing to the human senses. It is not surprising, say the psychiatrists, that it catches the eye of the newborn. God help the mom who In case I have run off and lost you with my new found knowledge and you are sitting there in gobbledygook thinking eight principle in your face and my face and many other faces. The distance from the top of the human head to the eyebrows and the distance from the eyebrow to the end of the chin are roughly 5 to 8, no matter what units of measure are used. Notice the word roughly. If you are still out there in the gobbledygook, I may join you there later, but not until I nail this thing once and for all. It seems that the preferences for this proportion has been known for centuries. Get this. In 1876, a large number of subjects (thats what folks are called when they are involved in an experiment) were asked to evaluate the aesthetic merits of a selection of rectangles of different dimensions. Guess what they liked best? chose the rectangles with a width is no report on what the other 25 percent those weirdos chose as best overall rectangle. And one final word. Examples of the Golden Ratio are found in paper money, travellers checks, and credit cards. I am so impressed by my great discovery of the Golden Ratio that I do not intend to leave home without it.

Those are the two businesses which currently occupy the building that was once home to Robbies Yum Yum Tree, Sals T-shirt Shop, Delgados, Bills Surf Shop, Foul Deck Bar, Geronimos Restaurant and Island Style. Local sources recall a wee bakery, a margarita-only saloon and a Chinese owned grocery, as well. If only the bricks could talk. Oh, what a tale they would tell. Becky Serio said her family opened Sals T-Shirt Shop in 1975. Everything was purple since the Yum Yum Tree had been in this location prior to us.

When the Foul Deck closed, we took it over and turned it into a souvenir shop. Bills Surf Shop was owned by Bill Craighead and Chuck Steel was the Foul Decks proprietor. Rudy Delgado and his family ran Delgados. Fred Flounder became the permanent restaurant resident in 1979 and Flo opened in 2013.

The $500,000 project would be tion Fund. The fund is an accumulation of excess lease fees The request, which was made Rinke, was accompanied by a Committee Approves More Palmsdesign with four traffic calming devices. The design, which creates rounded, semi-circular is intended to slow vehicles. The committee asked County Engineer Matt Mooneyham to return next month with an engineering many and where the calming devices must be located to achieve the desired safety goals. lock said, The palm trees are a slam dunk. I want to see the technical advantage of four calming devices instead of one. Mooneyham reminded the Committee that two calming devices were recommended in the Master Plan, but that the local, state and federal guidelines must be met with regard to the placement and design. The calming devices will be held in committee for further review. The Committee also approved a $20,000 investment in upgrading the power availability at the Gulfside Pavilion. County Commissioner Grover Robinson has committed an additional $30,000 in local option sales tax funds to the project. The upgrades will enhance the performance area for concerts, festivals and events. and Leasing Committee meeting, Board Member Tammy Bohannon called upon Mooneyham to give an update on the progress of Core Area Redevelopment projects. The Via de Luna landscape project is going well, according to Mooneyham. The south side plantings are complete and the contractor has moved to the phase will be planting on the north right-of-way and, in some cases, on leasehold property. The contractor reports that requesting access to plant on leaseholder property is going well, said Mooneyham. Additionally, palms will be planted on Ft. Pickens Road up to the s-curve near Margaritaville. facility improvements are complete, as is the prototype lighted crosswalk installation on Pensacola Beach Boulevard. The start date on the access road from Quietwater to The Grand Marlin has been delayed until January. Pavlock requested that the SRIA review the myriad of logos in use and consider updating and consolidating down to one. Ellis Bullock, principle of EW Bullock Associates, the SRIAs ad agency recommended a new logo with a historic icon. In his report, he showed the logos in use, compared beach destination logos and brought a conceptual draft of a logo which incorposign and the SRIA name. The same logo has been previously adopted by the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce. The Committee asked Bullversion of the conceptual draft. The Administrative Committee heard good news from whose report showed a 3.4 per cent increase in lease fee col lections during August over the previous year. Collections totalled $566,353. The Committee approved an Event Sponsorship Application policy which caps requests at members vote to grant additional funding. The grantee must bring adequate documentation to receive funds and complete a post event report to be eligible for future funding. rector Bob West updated the Committee on possible design and pricing structures for a high tech, high quality digital sign to replace use of acrossthe-road banners on Pensacola Beach Blvd. The road improvements plan calls for removal of the current poles to which the banners attach. The banner installation and high winds are that advertising method. After reviewing the options and price range, the Committee voted to begin an RFP process to receive bids for the sign. The Committee asked Beach Chamber President Nicole Stacey to survey Chamber members to measure interest in using the upgraded digital system. The Full Board meets Wednesday, November 6 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public. Agendas are available online at Future of Island Governance Equates To Dollars and SenseSanta Rosa Island Author ity Board Member Ed Guernsey thinks the future must be deter mined now. While leaseholders await a determination from the State Supreme Court on the legality of assessing and collecting ad valorem taxes on their land and improvements, Guernsey encour ages the SRIA Board to consider the future of their agency. In one scenario, he explains, if the case is decided against the leaseholders, and the Congress passes a bill to allow Escambia County to offer fee simple title, then leases would go away. The lease fees which fund the operation of the Santa Rosa Island Authoritys existence would dry up. If we dont have a plan on how this is going to go, then we will have one made for us, he said. Thats undesirable, according to Guernsey. Months ago he began gathering data and research on taxes and fees collected in neighboring destination resorts. He presented preliminary results to the SRIA mittee during their October 23 meeting. The purpose of this report is to look for methods and structure. Should the ad valorem taxes be sources of funding to keep the SRIA working, he said. We need about $8 million per year to keep it working at this level. he gathered statistics about what tourists, property owners and commercial businesses pay in taxes and fees from Gulf Shores, Alabama to Panama City, Florida. In comparing those areas, he concluded that if all are subject to taxes, and Pensacola Beach businesses did not have to pass lease fees on to the consumer, there is not a lot of difference between one place or another for the tourists. The major stakeholders really want to get rid of this lease fee, said Guernsey. Commercial leaseholders on Pensacola Beach pay between 2 and 5 percent of their gross receipts to the SRIA each month, in addition to other taxes. Without lease fee collections, there are some other potential funding sources. There are some other ways to do this, he reported. Guernsey noted that combi nations of special assessments, lease fees or tolls could be used to fund the operations of an SRIA type agency. A public awareness and education campaign about what the SRIA provides, and the economic impact it creates needs to be generated. He included an idea, which has previously been discussed by his appointing Commissioner Gene Valentino, to create an SRIA to govern all waterfront areas in Escambia County. Its going to take alot of work from this Board to come up with something that our leaders and our citizens would be happy with, he said. Pensacola Beach is an economic engine for Escambia County. The Haas Center estimates that Pensacola Beach generates an impact of $260 million annually. Guernsey asks Would you spend $8 million to keep $260 The discussion continues at the November 20 SRIA meeting.

So I enjoyed locked sisters in Georgia certs I was set to attend, when my oldest sister Brenda told my sister Gail and me that she had always wanted to see Merle Haggard. As soon as I got home gard concerts. Its a little tricky because I have to keep in mind that her illness prohibits long drives so I had to check mileage from various venues. I got lucky and found a concert, February 1 in Jacksonville. I dont think I have to tell most of you how insanely funny Cheech and Chong were, always have been and will always be! They performed for 2 hours with mances and impersonations that had the entire crowd howling with laughter. Yall should know by now how much I love Willie Nelson but I gotta tell you theres a new love in my life. Coming directly writers and Musicians Festival, it was an indescribable joy to see Kris Kristofferson at the IP! Were all so used to seeing such ment and people on every stage now that it was amazing to see nothing except 2 microphone stands, his song list stand and a small table holding his many harmonicas. He commanded the stage with his own presence the moment he stepped on it and made it seem so personal, classic and pure. I was surprised to learn that Kris Kristofferson shares my birthday (although his birthyear is 18 years before mine). How sides the fact that hes certainly a legend and his poetic lyrics have been sung by more famous musicians than nearly anyone, he also has numerous degrees, inductions into more Halls of Fame than anyone else alive, yet he still seems a humble man who is enjoying exactly what he is doing. one in my way) to get directly turned for his encore. As he was leaving, I said, God Bless You. I swear, he looked directly at me, nodded his head and said, Thank you. You could have knocked me over with a feather. It was one of the most amazing, incredible and spiritual moments of my life. Its hard to imagine any other artist even close to the caliber of this extraordinary man stepping out on stage all alone with nothing and nobody to help cover any mistakes. And trust me, I dont care who you are we all make mistakes, were just not on stage when ours happen. Sure, there were a few but he laughed and we laughed with him. He gave his audience a feeling of warmth and personal attention like no other Ive ever experienced. I have always loved Kris Kristofferson but this was the form and I fell in love all over again; just like I did the day I heard he had written so many of the songs I loved most. In those days, his songs were performed one except him. He earned part of his fame when he became a member of the Highwaymen lon Jennings and Johnny Cash. ing performers. ebrating our Veterans and the day dedicated to them, it touched my heart to learn of Kristoffersons illustrious military career. He was a Captain in the Army and a helicopter pilot. He was awarded the Veteran of the Year in 2003. Because he chose his music career over an appointment to teach English Literature at West Point, he was disowned by his entire family. What a sad and tragic turning point in a great mans life even though we know it made him what he is today. ferson spent a lot of his early music career years working on ern Louisiana. He actually wrote ting on top of an oil platform. Many of his famous songs were written during the years he spent in the area.

PAGE 8 Island Times October 29, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue... I am such a so and so. For the past 20 years, I've been promising myself that I would create the most stunning evening gown to wear to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. For two decades, I have been staring at yards of red, raw silk. A fabric that cost me more than $200 per yard and purchased from a very upscale store in Los Angeles, California in 1993. Cloth so soft that when you touch it, it feels like warm cocoa butter being massaged into your skin. A fabric so unique that endless silk threads fortlessly with the slightest movement. Now it's just yardage that hangs around in my sewing studio like a dejected, but determined lover yearning for the slightest bit of attention. The excuses have been endless. Not enough time. Way too little design talent. Moved cross country. Nordstrom's was having a sale. Pregnant. Husband deployed. Needed the correct notions. Couldn't possibly run this fabric through a cheap sewing machine. Too muscular. Too fat. My mother-in-law just bought me a Miss America gown in Atlantic City. Until eventually the excuses ran out. Eventually, I enrolled in sewing classes and read books on design techniques. The frantic pace of moving ceased. The last time I was pregnant was 1997. The Miss America Pageant moved to Las Vegas, though now it's back in New Jersey. My husband is home. There is no such thing as a "cheap" Bernina. And I have all the notions: silk thread, lining, boning, invisible zipper, and a 14K gold button with one single ruby surrounded by diamonds. Yes, one of my most elaborate pieces of jewelry is actually a button. This from a girl who loves to wear Mexican silver and cried when her $10 watch from Target wouldn't tick off another second after years of keeping accurate time. the year I met my husband, and now as a recent retiree, a Marine Corps Ball is not on the family calendar. The Colonel and I will definitely raise a toast to the November 10 and listen to the Commandant's inspirational message. As for me personally, maybe become a true sew and sew and happen to have the perfect pair of never been worn ten-year-old red beaded high heals, neatly tucked away in protective cloth bags, for that swift kick in the backside. Until next time...Key Sailing Hosts Championship RacingSailors captured fickle winds in Santa Rosa Sound October 11-13 to power their cats while competing in the NACRA North American Championships.

This year I ran four sprint triathlons. All of these races were fun and I enjoyed them, but each lack of consistent training. In one of them I had a terrible swim. I had a really bad bike leg in another because I made a careless equipment mistake. I had slow runs in the other two because I just ran out of gas due to poor preparation. You may be saying, uh, isnt that 0 for 4? Uh, thats not very good is it? Well, yes and no. I see it as 4 for 4. I ran four had some fun; and, I learned a lesson in each of these races. Now were heading into the fall season and I wont be swimming in the Gulf of Mexico much longer. Ill get out on my stand up paddleboard in my wetsuit, but actual distance swimming in the Gulf is almost over. I dont care for riding my bike in cold weather either. No matter how much clothing I wear, being on a bike in the cold is not that much fun for me. So, whats next? Running, of course, is the perfect outdoor exercise as the temperatures drop. As it gets cooler (or colder) I wont have to run before 6 a.m. to avoid the heat. I can bundle up and run for miles without sweating through my clothes and shoes. Apparently millions of people feel the same way because the fall and winter feature fantastic marathons and half marathons around the country. My goal race is the Savannah Rock N Roll Half Marathon on November 9 and Ive been training since August for this event. This weekend Ill complete my miles and then I should be very nearly ready. Although Ive run nearly two hundred road races over three decades, this is just my second half marathon. The Breast Cancer Half Marathon in Jacksonville and I had a great time and a decent race. Yeah, you say, but youve run triathlons and road races for years and this is going to be pretty easy for you. Actually, Im older now, experience is over-rated in this case and Im kinda slow. The way way Im doing this one I train with a group and I follow a plan. There are a few other techniques that Ive used, but thats about it. Ive trained better for this one than I did for Jacksonville and I think I have a better race plan as well. Race plan? Dont you just go out running for a while and try not to throw up? Im looking at it as I have thirteen plans that make up the whole. Thats how Im doing it at my age. I know and I know what my mile pace should be to accomplish that goal. So, Im going to pay careful attention to each mile and watch how fast Im running and how I feel. I am not going to get caught up I can run each mile according to the plan, I should equal or better the time Im aiming for. I should Lets say I do run Savannah envision. Whats next? The good thing about athletics is there is always another competition, another event or another race. Q: What is the Spotify music service? A: Spotify is an Internet music service that lets you stream digital music to your computer and mobile devices. The company was started in Sweden. The founder, Daniel Ek, was only in his twenties when he negotiated with major music labels to gain access to their music. More than one-third of Swedens residents use that service. About 70% of Spotifys revenues are paid to the music companies and artists. The service arrived in the United States a couple of years ago, and is now in almost 30 other countries. It is already the second largest music streaming service. Only Apples iTunes service is bigger. Users of Spotify can choose to have a free account or a paid account. Spotify makes money by advertising and by converting customers free accounts to paid accounts. To listen to music on your computer per month. To listen on all of per month. One of Spotifys biggest competitors is Pandora. The main difference between Spotify and Pandora is that Pandora does song for streaming. With Pandora, you can select music only by genre, after which Pandora automatically selects similar music for you. With Spotify, you can build playlists, share them with your friends, or get playlists from other users. Daniel Ek became a multimillionaire in his early twenties after he developed some on-line advertising software and sold it. He had a vision for a music streaming company after seeing what happened with the Napster that time, music and video piracy on the Internet was rampant in Sweden. He then created Spotify to provide licensed music to users without the risks associated with piracy. Today, downloading music and videos illegally carries a high risk of being charged with piracy. If charged with piracy, a a single download that could have been obtained for pennies through a legitimate download service. This article was provided by tions, contact Joe at joe@ycpals.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You unearthed some surprising facts. Now you need to consider how to use them to your advantage. Meanwhile, it might be best to keep what you've learned secret for now. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A comment by a colleague piques your curiosity to know more. Best advice: You'll find people more likely to offer information if you're discreet when making your inquiries. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your energy levels begin to rise by midweek. This allows you to catch up with your heavy workload and still have plenty of get-up-and-go to go out on the town this weekend. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You're probably roaring your head off about a perceived slight from a longtime critic. Ignore it. That person might just be trying to goad you into doing something you might later regret. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) The early part of the week is open to spontaneity. Then it's time to settle into your usual routine to get all your tasks done. A personal situation could require more attention from you. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A meeting of the minds on a workplace project might well develop into something more personal for Librans looking for romance. Aspects are also favorable for platonic relationships. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more-positive mood might be difficult to assume in light of a recent problem involving the health of someone special. But by week's end, your emotional barometer should start to rise. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Look for a changed attitude from a former adversary once he or she realizes you have your colleagues' full support. Now you can refocus your energies on that workplace project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) This time, a difference of opinion might not be resolved in your favor. But be patient. It ultimately could all work out to your advantage, as new information begins to develop. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A tug of war develops between the artistic Aquarian's creative aspect and his or her practical side. Best advice: Prioritize your schedule so you can give appropriate time to both. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You could be entering a career phase awash with job-related demands. But avoid being swamped by the overflow and, instead, keep treading water as you deal with demands one by one. BORN THIS WEEK: You are an exceptionally loyal person, and you're respected for your ability to keep the secrets entrusted to you.
