Here it is, the 1986 swim suit season! In my last high fashion column, I warned all of you that no designer has yet come up with a big, baggy swimsuit. On the contrary, what I see this summer looks like the best bikini buys are about $100 per ounce. This years swim wear lets it all hang out, and you may find there is too much hanging out. What do you do? Well, theres the Bloomingdale Diet the one where all the department store employees took off hundreds of composite pounds theres Pritikin and Solomon Scarsdale, the Air Force diet, grapefruit pills, no fat, low fat, and high fat on and on. None of these diets include Bushwackers, Fried Mullet, Red Beans and Rice or potato chips. Beer is the worst four letter word ever known to dieters. In my opinion, the only way to go for a person on a diet is hiding from the world. While your friends are all sitting around Dirty Joes, Caf Porte Bleue, Flounders or Stanley and Andreas carport, you are in mourninggrieving over the loss of your regular way of beach life. You must set aside eating, drinking and socializing for the duration of time it takes to get to bikini size. As long as you have to jump off the earth anyway, why not try the Dr. Vaughn Bryant Diet retreat? Maybe, you recognize old Vaughn as the head of the Anthropology Department at Texas A&M. With his PhD. In hand, he studied the eating habits of cave men and formed some solid conclusions. They were ugly, shabbily dressed, needed to invent combs, and growled a lot. But, they were not fat. They were so busy scrounging up munchies that they were not forced to jog or lift clubs to keep slim. Dr. Bryant, 39-years-old, and 30 pounds overweight, (Prof Buttertub to his students) discovered that cave men lived on fruits and vegetables with a smattering of grasshoppers and snakes as entrees. In his anthropological mind, the diet clicked. He modified the cave man diet somewhat, exchanging lean meat and fish for snakes and grasshoppers. He added whole wheat pita bread (boy, the cave men would have clubbed their mothers for a piece of pita bread), potatoes and rice. He kicked out eggs, butter, oils, simple sugars and trips to his favorite pub. Although he did not stick rigidly to the consumption of grasshoppers and snakes, he did lose weight in a relatively short time. He claims he noticed a marked increase in his energy and well being. When last seen he was wearing leopard skin swim trunks (mainly because no dinosaur skins were immediately available). The cave man diet is very simple. Cut out everything that tastes good. No doubt, you have always imagined you might be. Beware of side effects such as throwing away all combs and brushes, divorce on the grounds that no one should be dragged by the hair of the head, and going into cardiac arrest every time a poor, innocent grasshopper sits down on your windowsill. This is the price you must pay in addition to the $100 per ounce for your 1986 swim suit. Kai Hoffert, 10, is the Student of the Year at Pensacola all her friends and teachers each day. That positive attitude Junior Ranger The popular Junior Ranger Camps located at Gulf Islands National Seashore for children ages 3-5, 6-8, and 9-11 explores the biology and history of Gulf Islands National Seashore.

BEACH BRIDEWedding bells chimed on the sands of Pensacola Beach May 10 when Stan Arbaczauskas took Kelly Dunn to be his wife.

Slaters former teacher Margie Pitts is a big fan and follows his career, as do his beach neighbors. Surf Burgers Alice Bohannon was on Pensacola Beach with one eye on the Innerlight Surf Contest and one on a live feed from the World Championships. The Trivia Master did not demand accuracy. He did not request that you get it on the nose. He only wanted to know who could get closest to the number of trolleyers who stepped aboard the islands seasonal transportation system. 53,247That was the number of people who took a free ride aboard Pensacola Beachs trolleys last season as reported by Paolo Ghio, the Santa Rosa Island Authoritys Director of Environmental and Developmental Services. Big Bob Dority is the winner. He was close enough. Close only counts for horse shoes, hand grenades and trolley rider estimates. Look for Big Bob in his white truck or white golf cart wearing his new Island Times shirt. So, the Trivia Master is thinking about the island tribe of Wooly Boogers and their royal family. Time was when Her Royal Sweetness, Queen Shugah, the Benevolent and Adorable Titular Ruler of the Great Sandspur Republic had a King and sometimes a Royal Consort. Of late, not all Queens have had a Royal Consort and there have been no Wooly Booger Kings crowned in recent history. The Royal Consort holds the temporary title of Sir Dude, The Royal and Loyal High Duke of the Sugar Bowl. The Consort has a list of tasks including the delivery of the Queen to her royal events, the guardian of the talismans and gris gris, and to keep the Queen up in a way to which she has become accustomed. No easy task but the bearded and beer drinking were up to the charge. So Wooly Boogers, dust off your brain cells. Make a withdrawal from your memory bank. Dude? Send your answer with your name and phone number to with Trivia in the subject line. If you will win an special Island Times trivia t-shirt. (Not available in any retail location or online.) Lets see your Wooly answers! Deadline to answer is Tuesday, June 3. Good luck! Dancingly Yours Performance Troupe presentsMusic of the MoviesSaturday, May 31 6:29 PM UWF Performing Arts Center


PAGE 5 Island Times May 23, 2014 The Krewe of Bananimals is putting the happy in Camp Happy Sands, but they need your help. Camp Happy Sands provides a week long day-camp experience and learning oppor tunities for children in Pensacola. The camp is a free summer day camp supporting children of low income and disadvantaged families within the greater Pensacola area, said Director Allison Sanchez. Last year we had over 280 campers ranging in ages from 6 to 11. Sanchez is the reigning Queen of the Krewe of Nauga, so she is hoping that Mardi Gras krewes, Beach residents and businesses will help the Bananimals collect some much needed supplies. Last year the Bananimals really did a good job, but we need to do more, said Karen Cook, krewe founder. This stuff is so much fun to buy and makes such a difference for these children attending camp. Lets make this a beach-wide effort. During a typical day, the children participate in craft activities, guided nature walks, swimming, games and music. Guest speakers provide talks and demonstrations with child interaction on topics such as environmental stewardship, natural resources and the protection and under standing of wildlife and plants. In order to continue to serve these children, Camp Happy Sands has a wish list. Dona tions of the requested items can be delivered by Friday, June 6 to Resort Quest, 731 Pensacola Beach Blvd. or the Beach Visitors Center.

Somehow Ive been lucky enough to manage the miracle of holding on to my fabulous pretty, but it is very effective with a nice wide brim that keeps the rain off my glasses so I can see. Another great feature is that protectors people use in their nifty case that came with it. That keeps the wet hat from dripping all over a store or Old Blue. It also has a slide string to secure it tightly which comes in handy when the wind is blowing hard enough to turn umbrellas inside out.

We have never been offered freebies for Friday and Saturday nights (those are usually reserved for High Rollers and we are low ey to gamble, free food to eat and not only free, but very nice rooms to stay in. The big bonus was The Doobie Brothers were performing on Saturday night. fortunately by the time I booked our reservations, the concert was Sold Out.

The Doobie Brothers can still rock the house. on me with perfect timing on Mothers Day. I didnt hit a big But I did win enough to cash sino before heading home.

I know better than to get greedy. I did make a detour by the casinos bakery and bought some very pretty and delicious goodies to snack on during our ride. I guess thats about when my luck ran out. I had a Krewe of Nereids meeting scheduled shortly after returning home. Becky Shearman was sweet and vost and me since it was in Gulf Breeze at the home of Lila and Jim Cox.

Its like being an your heart already, then youve earned the title. And this woman certainly earned it. Thankfully my daughter Mel was here. She helped doing all we asked of her. Very soon my neighbors daughter arrived to take her to the hospital. (By this time Becky had come by and Id explained what was going on and told her to extend my regrets Once the emergency was over, I lamented that the one time Im actually ready before time and Im missing the meeting. Mel offered to drive me over to Lilas and I decided to accept. Maybe I should have stayed home. When I arrived everyone was out back by the pool on the nice patio.

PAGE 8 Island Times May 23, 2014 The Lizzards Tongue... Most mornings my friend, Bob Dority, posts to Facebook a gorgeous picture of the sunrise on Pensacola Beach. I am grateful that he does because I am usually out running or walking my dog, Pete, and the picture I actually see is very different from the one he posts. I am unfortunate enough to get the visual reminder of those who have enjoyed their long weekend stay, especially if it's been for some kind of celebration beyond just a simple family vacation. The trash cans in front of these rental houses are trash bags are stacked on the ground making for a precarious base for additional refuse that is neither bag nor can worthy. Since normal trash pickup is not until Friday, and consider ing the weather we have on the Beach, from wind and rain to temper atures ranging in the mid-80s, you can only imagine where the trash ends up or how quickly it starts to smell when this scenario begins on a Monday. Now most rental agents are very good about rectifying the situation once they are called. But I have to ask, why do they they be on top of cleaning up their tenants' mess immedithat states when the renters are checking in and when they are checking out. There should be no proverbial elephant in the room on this one. If party supply rental company can show and remove all the chairs and tables from the front lawn, why can't the leasing agent do the cost of running a business and the appropriate measure to take since some these houses are in a residential neighborhood. Yes, there are still some of us who call Pensacola Beach home every day, every night. Also what's the story behind the dumpsters located by Cowley Park between the tennis courts and the elementary sands of dollars have been spent to beautify Via de Luna, and yet no one seems to be responsible or ac countable for the trash that is accumulating at this site. The other day, the wind was blowing just right and the stench was that of the Pensacola dump. Pete was in scent heaven. I was trying not to gag. A family picked up their strolling pace and the little kids were squealing with their noses pinched, P.U. It stinks mommy! Out of the mouths of babes comes the truth. Yes, we have a refuse problem and I believe we are all responsible. The rental agencies need to pick up after their tenants immediately and not allow for any amount of time unless they are being emptied that day. Everyone, locals included, needs to stop using the Cowley Park dumpsters unless they have permission to do so, especially believe when there are beds and household appliances left in a pile by the dumpsters, it's probably a local and not a tourist, but I could be wrong. In case I am correct, remember ECUA is just a phone call away. Since these dumpsters are on Santa Rosa Island Authority property, they need to be more proactive as well. All the palm trees in the world cannot hide the disgusting mess or mask the putrid smell at these dumpsters. We need action and people to start cleaning up now or soon we will be living and vacationing on Trashacola Beach. And that my friends, will really stink. Until next time... Dumpster site near Cowley Park had become an eyesore and assault on the senses. The Santa Rosa Island Authorthe problem.

Be like a postage stamp and stick with it until it gets there. It was very late and very dark as Mother Nature unleashed her wrath on our community. The wind was so strong and you could smell the rain in the air. Suddenly there was an enormous ear-splitting clap of thunder, followed by streaks of lightning that divided the black sky in two. Usually this is accompanied with a few minutes of peace. During those few minutes one is able to collect herself and prepare for the next assault to the senses. However, in our case there was no rest. The claps of thunder followed an on-slot of lighting continued for the entire night. I have a two-story house with a traditional chimney. The sound resonated down the chimney and exploded in the house like a modfeel the pitch-black night out side. It became its own entity with an enormous fear attached to it. I gave the night of rain and thunder a physical body and became sun rose the next morning I was reminded, once again, that darkness can be erased from our lives. During the night I felt alone and surrounded by enemies and lost my anchor. But hope is always present. I was one of the lucky ones. The water danced around my front door, but only managed to sashay its way in the front entry. My neighbors were not so lucky. We, as a community, are surrounded by nature and its devastating circumstance. The years of living in Gulf Breeze have been proof. These forces cannot be magically changed, but our hearts and minds can be. Most of us spoke to our neighbors for Strangers rallied to our communitys side. Gulf Breeze did take strength to survive will never be postage stamp. We stick together until all our families get to the place they need to be.

Were almost three weeks into patrol season and we havent yet found a single nest on Pensacola Beach or the Gulf Islands National Seashore. There hasnt even been a false crawl. Perdido Key had its first sea turtle nest of the 2014 season May 20. This is only my sixth year as a sea turtle patroller, but I know there were previous years when they were late coming in. Perhaps the record-breaking winter and lingering cold snaps on Pensacola Beach has had some effect on them. Heaven knows Im still somewhat shaken by the memory of seeing people sledding on our frozen beach this year. Heading into the third week of patrol, we even had a period with chilling north winds and low temps around 59 degrees, which I dubbed our dewberry winter. Each year Im impatient to find my first sea turtle nest but, like all of nature, mama sea turtles move at their own pace. We know they are out there waiting for some arcane signal which triggers their innate behavior. Boaters, surfers, paddleboarders and people fishing from the pier can see them gracefully swimming along, but this season the secret signal has not yet sounded. If there is one lesson the sea teaches, it is patience. In the meantime, even on days with the harshest conditions, sea turtle patrollers are given unique insight into shorelife. Like surfers know the waves and boat captains know the currents, sea turtle patrollers know the seashore. We are taught by the same teacher who chastises us when we try to second guess her, but uniquely rewards us for our passion. We bow to her beauty, but tremble when she manifests her fury. While waiting on sea turtles these past few years, Ive learned so much more. Ive learned how tides and currents can alter the shoreline practically overnight. A cut can be made in one place and just as quickly heal or continue to deepen until it claims sand-fencing and creates sharp drops that divide sections of the beach. A calm sea may later sweep sand from sandbars and recreate a beautiful wide beach where it once was narrow. Mother Nature has her moods. Ive learned that identifying shorebirds is more difficult than I thought because their plumage changes so much and so often. Ive learned to keep my eyes open for unusual birds that are migrating or blown off course during a tropical storm and end up on our beach, so dont dismiss your friends account of seeing a pink flamingo in the National Seashore as a night of too much partying. It happened just six years ago. Somewhere along the way I finally learned, like Anne Lindbergh said, One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can only collect a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few. Now I just pick one up if its unusual or to mark a special moment with which I identify it. Ive learned that fewer people are building sand castles and more are just digging holes, which makes me sad; that fishermen should never turn their back to a heron if their lunch box is open; that someone must have created the phrase dont get your back up after watching territorial sanderlings squabble; that I still see beauty in Mermaids purses even after discovering they are egg casings of sharks, skates and rays; that the wail of a Common Loon at twilight is one of the most beautiful sounds Ive ever heard, but its yodel will raise the hair on my neck. There are so many wonderful things Ive learned as a sea turtle patroller through the years, but perhaps the most important of all is that a mama sea turtle will come ashore to nest when shes good and ready. In the meantime, Im sure Mother Nature has many more lessons for me. Until next time, Lights Out! Pensacola Beach had a record year in 2013 for turtle nesting with 20 nests documented by the sea turtle patrol. Unfortunately it was also a near record year for disorientation as well. Heres a few reminders about turtle friendly lighting practices. The holy trinity of turtle friendly lighting is low, long, shield. Low meaning place the light fixture as low as you can to be able to illuminate walkways and porches; you will be surprised how much better you can actually see. And, the stars are awesome! Long meaning long wavelength, which would be in the yellow/red portion of the color spectrum. Shield meaning shielding the light source so that the light is directed down. Achieving two of the three will suffice in being turtle friendly. With indoor lighting try to use shades or move light fixtures so that light is blocked to the beach; and when you go to bed, turn them off. Bring your chairs and umbrellas in each evening and fill deep holes dug during the day. We can all help to become more turtle friendly. For information on sea turtle nesting or about the lighting ordinance contact the Escambia Sea Grant Extension Agent Rick OConnor at 850-475-5230 or Nature Notes By Rick OConnor Florida Sea Grant University of Florida / IFAS Escambia County

Bytes & BitsBy Joe Stukey, Your Computer Pal Sandee Bredesen, a retired educator, has been chuckling for thirty years about the funny things kids say and do. Q: What are the Top Inter net Browsers? A: An Internet browser is a computer program that you use to search the Internet and bring web pages into your computer. There are four Internet browsers that are the most used today. In order by market share, the browsers are Microsofts Internet Explorer (48%), Googles Chrome (21%), Mozillas Firefox (17%), and Apples Safari (14%). Market share of all other browsers is negligible. The fastest growing of those browsers is Google Chrome. Its growth is fueled by the shift towards mobile browsing on millions of smart phones and tablets that use Googles Android operating systems. For the same reason, Apples Safari is about to move into third place and ahead of Firefox. The Safari software is used on all of Apples iPads and iPhones. The trend away from desktop browsing is hurting Firefox because it does not have a good foothold in the mobile market. Firefox actually generates most of its revenue from a contract with Google, and that contract is about to be renegotiated. (When using Firefox to look up things on the Internet, Google is working in the background.) Internet Explorer will continue to dominate the desktop market, but it also has less focus on the mobile market, which will hurt market share in the long run. The position in the marketplace is important to those companies because of the revenues that come from advertisements associated with the use of the Internet browsers by consumers.

He exclaimed to his grandmother, Oh no, there goes Jesus quarter! happened? He went into a long dialogue blaming the other student, the girl in the next seat, his brother and George Bush.

Several types of massage Outcalls available Race News And More The Grandman Triathlon in Fairhope is coming up on Saturday, May 31 and Im expecting another great athletic experience. endar every year and consists of a 600-yard swim, an 18-mile bike and a 5K run. It centers around the pier in Fairhope Park and includes the huge hill that must be surmounted at the start of the bike and the run legs. Its challenging for those new to the sport and for experienced triathletes as well. I met three friends at the park this past weekend for a practice race. Arriving there on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay shortly before 7 a.m., I was soon joined by the three newbies. Yes, these guys have never run a triathlon before and theyre preparing hard We began by reviewing each leg of the course particularly the swim start. The Grandman uses a time trial to begin the swim with each of the athletes jumping off of 800 enters the water one at a time based on their estimated completion time. You then swim 200 yards south to a buoy before turning 90 degrees to the east and heading for the shore. After climbing up a set of steps off the beach and jogging to Transition, the fun begins. As noted there is a very steep hill at the start of the bike (and the run) leg. I cautioned them to start in their lowest gear so they could make it up the extreme grade without having to get off their bikes and push. Everyone we set out on the rolling course to the turn-around. After reaching that point we pedaled down the scenic drive of the highway along the waterfront all the way back to the pier. We racked our bikes and changed into our running shoes as I drank the last of the pre-mixed sports drink in my bottle. At the top of the hill I was feeling fatigued which Im sure was due to not having eaten anything that morning. I made a mental note to fuel up before extended training runs, but I already knew that. We kept going and maneuvered through all the twisting roads to the turn-around and headed back to the park. When you get to the bottom of the hill, you still have almost a mile left. You have to run north to the duck pond and then back past the pier to the Finish line. All of us made it with few problems. We had a good discussion about many aspects of triathlon and what to expect on race morning. They are going to event. Im really looking forward to seeing them in the race and celebrating with them afterwards. The next day, June 1 at 6:30 a.m., will be the first session of the Mere Mortals training program on Pensacola Beach. The triathlon club of Northwest Florida, TriGulfCoast, conducts this program each Sunday morning all summer long. TGC will teach and train those who are completely new to the sport and also those who are experienced and have run several triathlons. All three disciplines will be practiced in a group training setting with appropriate safety support in the water. Theres nothing like a sizeable group to make you feel comfortable and also to hold you accountable for showing up each Sunday. The program culminates with the Members Only Tri, which is conducted on the same course as the Santa Rosa Island Triathlon.
