PAGE 2 Island Times June 10, 2014 Island TimesPensacola Beach Father Earns Best Dad AccoladesThe verdict is in. Attorney Isaac Newlin is guilty of three counts of being a great dad. He is sentenced to a lifetime of precious moments, trying times and all the things that dads must do to see their children through to adulthood. He was ratted out by his sister-in-law, Jamie Williams and his wife Lauren Williams Newlin, whose dad Eddie, is a previous Pensacola Beach Father of the Year. Considering themselves experts, they reported that Isaac is guilty of being a great beach dad. Hes funny, patient, kind and loves the beach. Upon further investigation, their accusations were found to be true. A romance sparked between Lauren and Isaac while on summer break during their freshman year at Florida State. After graduation, the couple married on the Beach in June 2006. Girls tend to marry men like their father, said Jamie, the sister-in-law. This was true on multiple counts when my sister married Isaac. When I look at Isaacs parenting style, there are multiple aspects that remind me of my father. Isaac is a partner at Kilpatrick and Newlin where he practices criminal law and personal injury law. The demanding career burns up his daytime hours, and then he returns home to Pensacola Beach, where he grabs the moniker of dad. His daughters Phare is four-yearsold, Isla is two and little Liv is full attention. I always say showing up is half the battle, said Isaac. To me, thats being here for them, with them. For Isaac that means introducing them to the things he loves about beach living. Outside, water-based fun like padjust like any good beach dad. He spent a great deal of time outdoors with his father. When my dad was dragging me through the woods hunting, I did not know it was creating a love for the outdoors, said Isaac. I am not a hunter, but I remember the mud and time spent with my dad. Isaac is fully devoted to his girls and is very involved with them, no matter the activity, said Jamie. Isaac, like my father, holds quality family time as a major priority. He would rather spend a good day at the or surf than a day with his buddies. And, what about the battle. Dads must soldier on. They can be strategic, strong and courageous, only to surrender to a small childs tear or a teenagers broken heart. Its not always easy, according to Isaac. Usually, he and Lauren are a team taking care of the three girls, but on Tuesday nights, mom goes off to her Bible study and its just dad and the girls. As he poured himself a cup of coffee with one hand, and cradled Liv with the other, he admitted that being a dad to three children ranges from chalit all in stride, quietly guiding and gently tending to his girls. The smile rarely leaves his face when he talks about them. Little Phare is demure and thoughtful when asked about her dad. She did not have any comment about his cooking, paddleboarding with her dad. At bedtime, the two of them have a special ritual of a nighttime prayer before she nods off. Although the family lives on and loves Pensacola Beach, they do take vacations. Their last big vacation came on a whim and they whisked themselves to Puerto Rico with only two days of planning. Isaac came home from work one day and said lets go, recalled Lauren. We got tickets, made reservations, and we on vacation two days later. But, we only had two girls at that point. Like most dads, Isaac was hoping for a son, but as each little baby girl arrives, he falls in love all over again. So, he is surrounded by pink hair bows and tiny tea sets for the time being. According to his family, he has no problem playing any silly game, if it entertains his daughters. He has a great deal of patience and loves children. Isaac say they may add to their family in the future. How do the Newlins celebrate Fathers Day? Its no surprise that they plan to picnic on the sand with a special beach chair for dad. A precious time for dad with his family on the island he holds so dear. If just showing up, is half battle, then Isaacs warmth and devotion will conquer the other half. Island Times salutes you. Happy Fathers Day, Isaac. The Krewe of Brewe has lined up four hours of non-stop Fathers Day fun, Sunday, June 15 at the Sandshaker, beginning at 3 p.m. The event, which includes a bunch of wacky contests for dads, is a fundraiser to Heroes.

We are proud to support said Christine Williams, Krewe spokesperson. And, were goreally is. Can your dad drink beer out of a baby bottle? Then bring him. There is no charge for any of the contests. Krewe members will be selling sizzling hot dogs and hamburgers, and pudding shots created just for this event. A Fathers Day Prize Auction is part of the event.

Krewe Hosts Fathers Day Shindig Madison Penico Island Times Its time for Pensacola Beach to cowboy up. Theres going to be a howdy doody of a good time for music lovers June 13 and 14. The Pensacola Beach Country Music Festival takes place at the Boardwalk includstages. A Merchants Sidewalk Sale and food booths will also be set up around the stages at the Boardwalk. The Festival features bands of both local and national notoriety. The Quietwater Ampitheater stage will be showcasing the Dusty Sanderson Band on both nights from 6 to 10 p.m. This band produces modern country music, and they also produce country music with a twist. Frequently they play country songs with a hint of blues, rock and rap. Sometimes a few oldies even sneak into their lineup. Local to Pensacola they previously were known by the name Southern Drifters. Dusty Sandersons unique musical energy has earned them a loyal following, and they are currently in the midst of touring the Northwest area of Florida. A couple of their popular singles include Hollars and Let the Party Begin. Sharing the stage with Dusty Sanderson will be the dynamic duo of Rick and Dale. This fun band will be playing from noon to 2 on Saturday, June 14. Rick and Dale utilize southern styles in the creation of their country music, making it as refreshing and comforting as a cool glass of sweet tea. Some islanders were able to catch Dave and Joe in March performing at Bands on the Beach. Those lucky few will surely jump at the chance to hear Dave and Joe play again during the Festival. Any fans who were unable to see the stellar pair at the March performance can make it up Friday, June 13 at 3 p.m. at the Bamboo Willies Stage. They will entertain audiences for the next four hours, closing at 7 p.m. On Saturday, during the same hours as Dave and Joe, the Chris Martin Band will perform. Chris Martin is another native to Pensacola, and he has taken inspiration from traditional country music to invent his own contemporary style. Martin performs his take on current country hits and his own singles. Both Friday and Saturday nights will see Downday performing from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Different from the other bands in the lineup, Downday was founded in Arkansas. Their modern mix of Southern rock has led to a fan base thats constantly growing and growing rather quickly. They have already made Country Radios Top 40 list twice with their singles Last Song and Back in the Day.

PAGE 5 Island Times June 10, 2014 Santa Rosa Island Authority Administrative Committee mem bers rolled quickly through their May 28 agenda which included discussion about the value and location of additional bike racks in the core area. The colorful and iconic racks resemble a bike frame and can be purchased for $80 each. The project is similar to one in downtown Pensacola. The request to consider the enhancement came initially from Board Member Ed Guernsey who called the racks functional art. The Committee expressed an interest in testing one dozen racks and adding more if the project is successful. Board Member Thomas Campanella voiced concerns about the few number of bikes that would be accommodated and the cost of the project. Its really not appropriate for out here, said Campanella. For downtown, its neat, but we need racks that allow lots of bikes. For an art project, ten is plenty. Otherwise, its government gone wild spending. SRIA Public Works Director Charles Morgans research found a vendor that uses inmates in a work-study program. According to Morgan, the price is a value and they offer a variety of colors. Paolo Ghio, Director of Environmental and Developmental Services, added that previous racks made of a composite material at a cost of $300 each were destroyed by vandals. The proposed racks are less expensive, sturdier and more attractive. In further supporting his idea, Guernsey said, If it is attractive, people will use it and enjoy it. Its not that much money. We have spent far more on stuff like core area studies. Board Member Janice Gilley, whose motion tasked staff to bring detailed map of where each rack would be located, said, I think they are cool. The Administrative Commitwhich showed a 1.3 percent dip in income from the previous year. Dottie Ford, Director of Finance attributed that to the inclement weather during the entire month. Year-to-date collections are down 2.6 percent compared to the previ ous year. Ford estimated that was a temporary downturn in revenue. The Committee continues to work on a policy to give local vendors a preference when bidding on SRIA projects. Board Attorney Mike Stebbins will bring a draft to the Committee during their June 25 meeting. Board Chairman Tammy Bohannon was encouraged by the effort and commented that investing in local vendors keeps the dollars in the areas economy. The Development and Leasing Committee gave the green light for more food and fun on the Beach. They approved a request to locate a smoothie and ice cream shop in the former Island Authority Committees Like Bike Racks, New BusinessesSubway location in the Via de Luna Shopping Center, and a restaurant to be added to the new development at the Gulfside Pier. The Casino Beach Bar and Grille is set to open this month after owners Matt LaFon and Scott Zepp have invested $800,000 in construction and renovations to the beachside location, according to SRIA Director Buck Lee. Jeff LaCour of Dolphin Express will offer dolphin and sightseeing cruises from Shaggys dock. Although many of his reservations will be booked online, the Committee was adamant that the percentages be paid on his gross that contingency. The Full Board will meet Wednesday, June 11 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public. The agenda is The Florida Supreme Court denied requests for Motions for Rehearing and Clarification, May 22 with regard to the case contesting ad valorem taxation on improvements to leasehold property on Pensacola Beach. The requests were made on behalf of approximately 2,200 Pensacola Beach leaseholders by their attorney Danny Kepner of Shell, Fleming, Davis and Menge. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the taxing authorities March 20. Kepners advice to his cli ents is to pay the taxes that are due. The interest was 12 percent during the years that the tax lawsuits were ongoing. Clients were to receive a letter from Kepner with further instructions. Escambia County Tax Collector Janet Holleys office is preparing to mail tax bills to the 322 accounts that have yet to pay their taxes. The bills, which will Supremes Deny Rehearing Requestbe mailed in mid-June allow the taxpayer 30 days to remit before becoming delinquent and incur ring an increase to 18 percent interest, applied retroactively to all years in question. Go online to escambiataxcol or call 850-438-6500 for further information. Two Paws Up or Dog Gone It Santa Rosa Island Authority Board Chairman Tammy Bohannon anticipated that a discussion regarding the pros and cons of the Pensacola Beach Dog Parks would be on the agenda for the Wednesday, June 11 Full Board meeting. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna and is open to the public.

Queen Melanie wore a stunning, one of a kind t-shirt created for her by her royal son. Queen Shugah Melanie entertained her guests bestowing each with a cup carrying her signature motto: Hurricanes, hurricanes go away. Wooly Boogers want to play and instructing them on the correct use and purpose of the lip and sea shell whistles (blow to the South). I have no doubt Queen Shugah will be successful in her goal to keep any and all hurricanes from touching the sugar white sands of our beloved island. I think weve had our share of weird weather already for this year. Im hoping and praying for a safe and gentle summer. Ive always loved summer and most of my favorite childhood memories take place during that season. Of course, I loved all the holidays, but summer brought a freedom that never existed in any other season. I still feel that sense of freedom. As an adult, I am amazed at the adventures my Mom and Dad carved out of short weekend trips. We travelled all over the state of Georgia anywhere within a days trip. We watched alligator wrestling and took a swamp tour in a very tiny boat through the great Okefenokee Swamp. I will never forget Andersonville, where captured Union soldiers were held prisoner during the Civil War. Even at a young age, I felt the desperation of the prisoners when I saw the huge hole they dug with their hands as they were dying of thirst and starvation. It is even more amazing when I recall what I know of my parents childhoods which was vastly different from mine and my siblings. My Daddy Hoke Harris lost his father when he was in the third grade. He had to quit school and work full time his family. It wasnt a question, nor was it a choice. They lived in rural Georgia and were sharecroppers in the small town of Hahira. I thought about that when my daughter was his age and again when my grandson Jesiah reached that same age. And I cannot pretend to imagine how hard that must have been. He was a very smart man head faster than I could with an adding machine. He was not a great reader, though he devoured the newspaper every day bringing in the newspaper. Hey, we had a long driveway) and lived by the Farmers Almanac (something I still dont understand). He worked a full time job as a Heavy Equipment Operator until I was in my late teens. But he farmed every evening and on weekends in addition to adding rooms to make our house large enough for all of us. How money and energy for all those We also travelled to many different Florida beaches over the years. My Daddy would always blow the horn every time he drove across a state line (something my husband Bill does for me now). Every time we passed a cemetery, he would say, Theres another Skull Orchard. By the time I was about 12 or 13, Dad decided he had had enough of travelling and vacations. He never went on another one until he and Mom had grandchildren. They bought an old pop-up camper, loaded all the grandkids up and headed for some water and new adventures. He once told me he could never say no to the grandchildren. I didnt understand it then, but I certainly do now. I remember one Christmas when my brother Danny bought our Dad some very expensive (at the time) and nice shoes. While visiting he asked my Dad how he liked them. Dad said he much preferred the shoes he was wearing since the new ones were a little tight. My brother and I laughed because the shoes my Daddy was wearing were given to him and they were actually a couple of sizes too big. After my Dads death in 1994, my husband Bill inherited those same shoes that were barely worn. The shoes were in the bottom of his closet when Hurricane Opal. Those shoes not only survived, but looked as new as ever. They appeared any of the slimy mess that covered everything else. Since these are dress shoes, Bill hasnt worn them much either (although he doesnt claim theyre too tight). A couple of weeks ago, Jesiah was getting ready for the Gulf Breeze Middle Schools Band Symphony at the Saenger Theatre. He needed a pair of black dress shoes because his end of April. Bill brought out the shoes. They were a little big (which Im sure my Dad approved) but they would work for one evening. So I was sitting in the incredible, historic and beautiful Saenger watching and enjoying the symphony. Jesiahs seat was on the end of his row so I had a great view. I watched his foot tapping on that greatest of stages. with the emotion of watching my grandsons foot now wearing the shoe of his Grandfather and Great-Grandfather. I know my Daddy is proud to see that the wonderful men in my life, all three are my heroes. I hope all of the wonderful men and Fathers out there will have a Blessed and wonderful Fathers Day full of life, love and joy. And if the way to a mans heart is through his stomach, this weeks recipe is guaranteed to work. And since its now Snapper season, this is perfect so, lets cook.. 1 onion, minced 2 stalks celery, diced cup green pepper, diced 5 Tbsp. butter 1 doz.

It is certainly a faith story designed to bring Israel to a closer relationship with God. It is a tragic story, but also a remarkable story of faith, because God asked Noah to build something out of faith in plain view of his children. We know about the ark and the animals. But what must Noah's faith have meant for his children? Everything! Children listen some, but watch more! While the physical ark is evi dence of Noah's faith, it's the arc of Noah's faith that should inspire us. It is seeing that faith is trust in God stretched time and adversity. In this faith story, Noah's children knew their father trusted God, because they saw him and it is clear that he was a man of faith. They saw him believe God more than the opinions of the day, or the way anyone else viewed God. Shem, Ham and Japheth saw their father struggle with building, gathering animals and those that would try to use him. They saw him with a balance of discipline and gentleness. This faith story is certainly a good one for Fathers Day because we get to see a man live by faith. And, a man like this lives out their faith in plain view of their children and grandchildren. That's what Noah did, with a father's faith in full view. Happy Father's Day!

Steve Gagne welcomed the Chamber members to the third floor waterfront coffee shop. Dozens of business representatives listen intently during the Roundtable reports which re summer season. Lodging partners agreed with Ron Wilson of Point South Vacation Rentals that the Memorial Day Weekend signals the start to a full occupancy marathon.

Everyone was pleased with the effort. Leslie Matthews, representing Visit Pensacola, asked Beach Chamber members to send her ideas for inviting groups to the area. I want to hear from you, said Matthews. Send me your ideas. I will introduce the Pensacola area to groups who host conferences and conventions. Of particular interest are the off season months.

In my case it should be dig in my nails. Daddy, a WWII veteran, is almost 90 years young. The wisdom he has passed on to me overshadows any corporate success in my book. Dont ever stop moving Susie, he said. Thats when the Grim Reaper will surely appear. A few days ago he asked why he could not play tennis on Monday? Yes, he plays tennis weekly with several other gentlemen, an accomplishment in its own right. Of course, I took the bait. His tennis partner Retired U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Henry Newcomer was driving to West Point Academy prior to Memorial Day from Northern Florida. Driving? I quipped. Oh, it gets better, Daddy told me. Henry was attending his 75 year graduation festivities. Yes, you read that correctly. The General, 97 years young, graduated from West Point in 1939. He obviously dug his nails in since his career spanned the WWII era until today. The General bomber throughout the European Theater of Operation. He participated in Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross, Air Medal with 15 oak leaf clusters and the coveted Presidential Unit Citation. Challenging career adjustments and retooling his skills lay ahead of him. The General then earned his Masters in Nuclear Physics. Back at the Pentagon he assumed the post of Chief, Special Projects Office of the Assistant for Atomic Energy. His next appointment was to the Joint Chiefs of Staff Strategic Planning Group. Newcomer commanded the 7217th Air Division headquartered at Ankara, Turkey. As we roll into the mid 60s his dynamic Air Force, Army and Navy. The General constantly reinvented himself and rose to each new decade with enthusiasm. It seems he never saw an obstacle that he could not overcome. Are you continuing to physically and mentally move? Digging your nails in? As a matter of fact, heres a recipe for a natural Nail-Growth Soak: Soak your nails in Orange Juice for 10 to 15 minutes a week. Then rinse well. Orange Juice contains Folic Acid and Vitamin C, which accelerates nail growth. My parents are still married and will celebrate their sixtysixth wedding anniversary soon. They are living in their own home and, frankly, I think are in better shape than I am. The General and Daddy played Tennis this week with gusto. Lets all keep moving, while reinventing ourselves. Plan on attending your 75 reunion graduation party! Quaharini (until we meet again) If bling is your thing, dont miss this sale.

I have been told it is not too unusual for nesting sea turtles to be this late arriving, but as an enthusiastic patroller I have to say, Major Bummer! Our first loggerhead nest was found on Perdido Key May 20 and the other in the Santa Rosa area of Gulf Islands National Seashore May 29. Our biologist has assured us that any day now the sea turtles will start coming in to nest as usual and we should be prepared for the rush. Believe me, we are ready. People around the island are asking about our sea turtles, too. We have seen a substantial increase in interest in sea turtles among beach residents and tourists alike thanks to a number of factors that brought awareness to their presence here: the Sea Turtle Baby Shower and Sea Turtle Homecoming events sponsored by the Holiday Inn Express, Margaritaville Beach Resort and the Pensacola Beach Advocates; the development and placement of Eco Trail signs around the island; the publicity Pensacola Beach received last year for its record number of nests; posts and photos shared on Facebook by local patrollers and sea turtle organizations which keep friends/ followers updated; the establishment of the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center; and (hopefully) reading Turtle Trax. Those who attend our events will notice that our children have become very knowledgeable about sea turtles also. During presentations kids love to be the first to shout out answers to questions about sea turtles and if you ever see a child at a nest when hatchlings emerge you'll see them light up with joy as they witness that magical moment. Children are enthusiastic about doing their part to keep the environment safe and clean for the tiny hatchlings. I tell them, "When you grow up and have children, maybe twenty years or so from now, one of these very hatchlings may be the one to come back and nest near here if it survives. You can tell your little girl or boy that the mama sea turtle may be one of the very same babies you saw march into the Gulf tonight!" Their eyes shine and their passion is set because we all have memories of a special place and time where we first connected love and happiness with nature. We try to be good examples for our children, but often actual changes are manifested through (or due to) the younger generation. I still smile when I think about one little boy whose mom brought home a case of water shortly after our Sea Turtle Baby Shower a couple of years ago and later walked into the kitchen to find all the bottles had been cut out of the plastic rings and lined up on the cabinet individually. She realized she would have to pack the bottles back up to store them and asked her son why he had cut them all apart. He very seriously reminded her that plastic six-pack rings are a danger to sea turtles, so he had to cut them up in case they accidentally blew into the water. Children don't need to establish committees to figure out what to do to help their beloved sea turtles. In their tender-hearted efforts to make a difference, they will simply ask a parent why they don't have reusable bags to bring the groceries home from the market like a friend does or why their family isn't recycling or ask why people left things on the beach at night when it might trap a sea turtle. The smallest ambassadors for our endangered sea turtles may sometimes be the most powerful. Last year I had the privilege to patrol Pensacola Beach one day a week and interact more with our tourists and beach residents. Several visitors stopped to ask what was in the marked off areas I was checking in the mornings or afternoons and when told it was a sea turtle nest, I was rather shocked to hear several say, I didnt know Pensacola Beach had sea turtles. Really? There is a fairly large segment of people who visit our area that were missing out on a unique experience. It turned out to be a great opportunity to share with them another reason our little paradise is so special and teach them what they could do during even a short vacation to help our endangered sea turtles and nesting shorebirds. The luckiest tourists were those that discovered they had rented a beach house with a sea turtle nest nearby. Some of them not only got to witness hatchlings emerging in the wee hours of the night, but were able to help to escort them safely into the Gulf of Mexico under the watchful eye of a federally-permitted sea turtle monitor. I love their excitement afterward as they almost always declare, "We have to come back here next year and bring [insert names of favorite family members or friends]." Life is good on Pensacola Beach and the Gulf Islands National Seashore. I am happy to have found my "heart-home" here and honored to be part of the sea turtle monitoring program; to be able to share my passion for the sea turtles, the shorebirds, our migratory birds and butterflies and everything else that is so special about our island; and to encourage people to leave the beach the way they love it when they go home -as untouched as possible. In the beautiful words of Wendell Berry ...the care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope. Until next time, Lights Out!

A: Maybe not every single one is a scam, but at the moment I cant think of any that are legitimate. Whether you are responding to a message on your screen or looking for a technology companys phone number on Google, you are being exposed to a scam. The pop-ups on your computer screen advise you that your computer is too slow or that it needs to be scanned for viruses, or that it hasnt been backed up recently. Those pop-ups showed up, unsolicited, because they want you to believe that your computer needs help. Even though we are supposed to ignore those pop-ups, we have been conditioned to be trusting and helpful to others, so we click away! Here is a good example of how scammers operate on the Internet. My customer has a wireless mouse, which stopped working unexpectedly last week. Being 85-years-old, and not techsavvy, he Googled the phone number for Logitech, the manufacturer of the mouse. By the way, all the mouse needed was a AA battery. The mistake was in believing that he had reached Logitech, using the phone number that he got from the Internet. The Internet scammers are like alligators that just lie there with their mouths to swim by --then their jaws snap shut. The scammers lied and said they were Logitech technical support. They proceeded to tell him that he needed new mouse installation drivers. Note: Mice dont need special drivers. They just work automatically when connected to the computer. They convinced him that they could solve his problems and made a deal with him for $250. After hours on the phone, he was exhausted. So, they next said that he needed antivirus protection. Actually, he already had antivirus software on his computer but they disabled it. They said they would discount cost of the software from $500 down to $400 as a special offer to him. The software they were selling actually costs about $20 online. So, by the end of the night he was out $650 because his battery had gone dead. The next day I removed the software and helped him get a full refund. But many people never get their money back. For questions, contact Joe at or 850206-3156.NIFTY IDEAPeggy Henshall at Cajun Stitchery shared this cleaning tip. Use aluminum foil to clean your tarnished silver jewelry much like you would your silverware. Line a tray with a piece of crumpled aluminum foil and place your jewelry on the foil. Sprinkle a layer of baking soda over the jewelry, and then pour boiling water over it. The tarnish will transfer from the jewelry to the foil. You may need to flip or move the jewelry around so all sides come in contact with the foil. Remove and rinse with water.BREATHE EASYStanley Steemer crews can pesky dirt and pollen that gets tracked in by friends and family. service to meet the standards adopted by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) to earn the asthma & allergy for Professional Carpet Cleaning.LEAPING FORWARDThe 2014 Leadership Pensacola Class graduates are Scott Adams, Larry Adams, Glenn Aderholdt, Gregory Allen, Kasey Armbruster, Annette Bankich, Rusty Branch, Victoria Brock, Deborah Brousseau, Doug Brown, Megan Burke, Brad Butler, Lindsey Cannon, Alex Chan, Jason Cromey, Bill Dagnall, Deborah Davidson, Hal Dell, Olivia Fischer, Joel Fleekop, Megan Fry, Benny Gaines, Domenick Grasso, Lori Gurule-Rat, Rodney Guttman, Cerys Heroman, Marcus Huff, Rachael Johnson, Bobby Kickliter, Donald Kobiec, Julia LeRoy, Lea McLaughlin, Ashley Meyer, Amy Minchin, Brooks Moore, Lindsay Myers, Sharhonda Owens, Jennifer Ponson, Audrey Preston, Jon Pruitt, Jon Pytynia, Candy Ruddy, Justin Spence, Angela Strickland, Randy Thompson, Keith Weidner, Kelly Wieczorek, and Olevia Yates.

Several types of massage Outcalls available Completely Off The ChainWOW is all I can say. A very impressive number (140) of athletes showed up by 6:30 a.m. on June 1 at Pensacola Beach for this summers initial Mere Mortals triathlon training group. This is TriGulfcoasts program for experienced triathletes as well as beginners. That was a lot of people for that early in the morning. The Santa Rosa Island Triathlon is one of the sponsors of this group and I was asked to make a few brief remarks. I looked out over the crowd assembled at the amphitheatre on the Boardwalk and asked how many were there of the throng raised their hands. triathletes and they seem to grow in number every year. Theyre the fresh blood of multi-sport and we all appreciate them and their enthusiasm. Besides, once they actually run a triathlon, theyre hooked on the sport. After administrative remarks and some training tips from the TriGulfCoast program director, that mass of people went into Santa Rosa Sound together. They all swam in the same direction for 100 yards, stopped to tread water and then reversed their course. Then they did it again and again. Finally, they swam or staggered in to the shore. For some it was decent training, for others it was a struggle, but they all did it together. This is the beauty of group training, especially in the water. You feel more comfortable and sure of your surroundings in a others techniques and strengths and you can improve your stroke. Its all great right up until someone slaps your back with their swim stroke or a swimmer in front of you kicks your shoulder. Its kind of like being in a rugby game except youre in saltwater and theres no ball. There are about 300 members of TriGulfCoast and that number is growing every year. Id like to commend President Mindi Straw and her dedicated Board of Directors for growing and strengthening the club. They have done an outstanding job and enhanced every facet of this outstanding organization. The Don McCloskey Seafood Festival 5K, presented by the Pensacola Runners Association will be held in downtown Pensacola on September 27. This is a traditionally popular, fall road race that includes the Community Maritime Park (and baseball stadium), Seville Square and the Pensacola Bayfront on its course layout. It begins and ends near Seville Quarter and a massive post-race celebration will be held there in Phineas Phoggs after the event. Look for more information to be available soon at www. Dont forget the Gary McAdams Sandshaker 5K is on Pensacola Beach on June 21. Its a fast, scenic course, cool shirt, good party and a great cause. I love this race and so will you. All the details can be accessed now by visiting Congratulations to Race Director Casi Callaway and the Mobile Baykeepers for another excellent Grandman Triathlon May 31 in Fairhope. The race was run under over-cast skies with a slight drizzle. We experienced very humid conditions and several of us had a hard time on one or more of the disciplines. That was probably due to lack of training more than the humidity so lessons were learned. It was my seventh Grandman and I think it was the best one so far. Congratulations also to the more than 600 triathletes who crossed the Finish line. Well done! While I am handing out compliments Race Directors Diane Martinez and Angelika Cope did a very nice job with the recent Bear Lake Trail Run near Munson in Santa Rosa County. The course was good, it was great to be out in nature running on soft surfaces and the post-race picnic was outstanding once again. Great job both of you!
