(And these are the nicer names they are called.) Readers ask questions and expect intelligent answers. If the editors answer agrees with the already preconceived notion of the questioner, everyeditor is a dreamer, a nitwit or the Pee Wee Herman of journalism. So, when I stick my neck out and say I think all this upscale development we have seen in the last year can only mean good things are coming our way, some questioners give me a look that means I should be hauled to the Funny Farm, post haste. Lets take a look at Harbourtown Shopping Village. There are now 32 shops and professional businesses operating in this complex which replaced an area of tangled underbrush on the curve headed toward the beach. These shops and operations. They are companies well known for their business expertise. These businesses are owned by individuals who have had years of experience in other locations in the Pensacola area. Now, they have selected Harbourtown. New businesses are scheduled to open in Harbourtown soon, and no one is leaving. Does that sound like the ghost town tag some gloomy individuals are trying to hang on the complex? Day by day, more Harbourtown. It will continue to grow. It is Gulf Breezes largest shopping center and it is community oriented with outstanding events planned for the remainder of the summer and fall. Gulf Breeze and Pensacola Beach should point with pride to Harbourtown. Its a neat place and its on the way up. People are really beginning to get the hang of Quietwater Beach Boardwalk. They are realizing the Boardwalk is a public place where the owners maintain docking facilities, swimming in a protected, guarded area, outdoor showers, and exceptional entertainment. Theres no entrance fee, no cover, no bucks for all this. Its a family place where everybody can enjoy leisurely shopping and a wide variety of eateries. What will happen after Labor centers, a beauty pageant, a huge Halloween party, Christmas contest, and parties, entertainment and all the shops and restaurants will remain open, so you wont have to stay home and mutter, Theres nothing to do in the winter on Pensacola Beach. I look forward to the debut of The Moorings, another new star in the beachs shining crown. The Moorings will be a complete marina and ships rant when it opens some time in August. No, the developers are not thrashing around in a morass class accommodations for the island. Progress is inevitable. Yet, development on Santa Rosa Island is restricted by a legislative act to the commercial area of Pensacola Beach. Those who keep shouting that the beach has been devastated and overdeveloped can drive about on Via de Luna, and arrive in a desolate, sea oat, sand dune terrain where they can view the Gulf and Sound in perfect tranquility. Or, they can travel in a westerly direction and enter the a National Park, which will remain forever unchanged for the natural beauties of the Island. Just as No man is an island unto himself, no island is immune to development. Wouldnt it be wonderful if all resort areas contained acres and acres of untouched and untouchable natural scenic shoreline? And wouldnt it be wonderful if all resort areas contained classic commercial areas? We have it all on our Island. When editors go home at night, they anguish over what they have heard and what they have said all day long. They offer their humble opinions objectively not necessarily agreeing or disagreeing just stating facts as they see them. Thats about the best they can do. Although newspaper people are not generally psychics or gurus, they do have a pretty good overview of whats going on in the respective habitats. When they get questions, they give answers straight from that overview. So, while it is true that not too many of us are fortune tellers, we are honest. So, whenever anyone asks me how I feel about all this new stuff, I answer honestly that good things are coming our way. Do you want to know more about the candidates? Are you registered to vote? The Pensacola Beach Optimist Club has you covered. They are hosting a Candidate Forum, Thursday, October 2 at 5:30 p.m. at the Pensacola Beach Community Church. Optimist Club President Carleen Wheeler announced that all candidates from the gubernatorial race to the one-elected Santa Rosa Island Authority seat have been invited to appear. The format allows three minutes for each candidate to address the beach voters. The candidate presentations will be followed by a proctored question-and-answer period. Attendees will be able to submit questions in writing at the meeting. Questions will be posed to candidates as time allows by Wheeler. We want everyone to join us, said Wheeler. Hear the candidates and stick around for refreshments after the presentations are over. In addition to the Governors race, Beach voters will have an opportunity to choose the Florida Attorney General, Chief Financial riculture. Mike Hill and Jeremy Lau face off for State Representative in District 2. Escambia County Commission District 4 incumbent Grover Robinson, IV, is taking on challenger Michael Lowery. residents earned the right to vote for one delegate to the Santa Rosa Island Authority Board. Thomas Campanella and Terry Preston are running for the SRIA seat. There are over 2,400 registered voters on Pensacola Beach. During the August 26 Primary Election voter turnout was relatively low with 436 voters from Pensacola Beach casting ballots. Getting registered to vote is easy. The League of Women Voters will be on hand at the Candidate Forum to register attendees. If you prefer, you can register online or in person at for forms tance. The deadline to register is October 6. The Pensacola Beach Optimist encourage everyone to attend the Candidate Forum. It is open to the public at no charge. Optimists Host Candidate ForumCampanella and Preston To Appear Lucky Lois Jernigan put a few coins in and got some big bucks out. Her payday at the Wind Creek Casino was just over one thousand dollars. She was having a ball showing her winning voucher off to her Pensacola Beach friends.

She greeted a couple who were sitting beachside with Hey guys, how's it going? Are you having fun? DJ said they stared at her strangely. After they spoke to her, DJ realized she had happened onto visitors from Italy. She used the only two Italian words she knew. Scusi, with lots of hands gesturing and then pointed at the building and the water, Bueno? What followed was lots of nodding and smiling. GREAT AND GRAND Little Gabriel Maximus Morain has a Pensacola Beach-based fan club. The baby boy was born in Panama City, August 26. His great grandparents are Floyd and Clara Smith of Pensacola Beach. His grandparents are Pensacola Beachs Roxanne and Jesse Penico. His proud Aunt Madison Penico drove from the FSU campus in time to greet the newest family member. Gabriels parents are Heather and Kaleb Morain. According to Madison, her mom is absolutely loving her new status as grandmother. DIG AND KILLPensacola Beachs Maddie Grace McCurdy is a polite teenager with a sweet smile. She is an honor student at Gulf Breeze High School. When the tenth grader gets on the volleyball court, look for her to rack up an impressive number of kills, digs, assists and aces. Go get em Maddie Grace!GADSDENS FUNDGulf Breeze Animal Hospitals owner Dr. Tim Gossman established a fund to help those pet owners who are unable to afford care for their furry friends. He named it to honor his dear dog Gadsden, who recently passed away. His bride Carol reported that the fund got $1,000 richer when Dr. Tim earned second prize in the Veterinary Practice News They Ate What? Contest. Gossman entered the amazing story of a pooch named Marley, who swallowed a metal skewer. It seems that Marley stole two shish kabobs from the kitchen counter. His owner only recovered one skewer which landed Marley in Dr. Gossmans operating room. The xray revealed the skewer and the surgery was flawless. Marley is happily living the life of a survivor, looking for his next adventure.TOP OTHE DAY Sullivan should celebrate his birthday at Paddy OLearys according to his wife Christy who planned the September 7 event. Her invitation included a menu of football games, beer, hot dogs, birthday cake, old friends and free love. A perfect way to say Happy Birthday to Michael. BIG WINNERSTracy and Marilyn McDonald are beach famous for their culinary skills and their tireless work at the Beach Church. Tracy hot grill to help a good cause and Marilyn will whip up one, or ten, of her famous cakes. Sometimes good deeds are rewarded with a little good luck. The Beach couple entered to win a new car. They received word on Labor Day that they were the winners of a brand new Fiat. HEROIC MARLINSRecall the August 24 storm that blew across the beach, forming without warning? The wind and waves were about to overcome two jet skiers in Santa Rosa Sound when four Grand Marlin employees came to their rescue. The owners and management of The Grand Marlin recognized Scott Roberts, Tristan Leverette, Brian Avirett and Chris Rivait for ness in coming to the aid of the imperiled boaters. LITTLE WISHESShelby Smith received 142 happy birthday wishes September 4. The entire student body at the Beach Elementary School cheered Miss Shelbys big day. They even put it on the reader board for the entire community to see. IN SYMPATHYFriends and family bid farewell to Bettye Davis, August 30. Davis was a member of the Beach Church, the Beach Womans Club and a big time Mississippi State football fan. She is survived by her son Scott and wife Lydia Davis; son Matt and wife Tracey Davis of Pensacola, in addition to many other family members. A memorial service was held September 6 and the family requests that donations be made in Bettyes memory to the Rosewood Manor. Its a depository of money and a place where everybody knows your name. The Bank of the South Island Branch opened its doors in 1979 after Hurricane Frederick according to long time banker Judy Lenderman. Trivia Tim Pike was quick to send his correct answer but requested that the winning shirt be sent to his friends Judy and Maria at The Bank. The island bank was located on the Gulf front until Hurricane Ivan crashed ashore, which is what prompted them to move to the northside of Fort Pickens Road. Island Times Columnist Kathi Lewis refers to it as the bankery, because if you are lucky enough to do your banking on the same day Judy has fresh baked bread available, then you have hit the jackpot. The Trivia Gang and Knights of the Roundtable fell short. Newbie David Hauck was close with an answer of 1980. Big Bob Dority fumbled with the same guess. Sharona Mattair went hair-brained and thought it was 1984. Although her place of employment was Bogies, just a stones throw from the Bank, her calendar was a bit off. The Duchess of the Dunes Joanne Brooks reverted back to the Queen of Wrong Answers throne. She wavered between the wrong one. Imagine that! Trivia Roundtable Knight Sir Morrie Drees thought it opened in 1976. Oops. He chuckled recalling when Harry Gowens hooked his wrecker up to the little bank building and started to haul it off with Danny Matthews inside. In his usual way, Chuck Steele entertains the beach family with this, The bank opened the same year I opened an account with Bank of the South. So the Trivia Master comes out of the Wall Street World of beach institution. Try this next question. An Island Times trivia t-shirt to the first person to correctly identify the Pensacola Beach watering hole who used this as a slogan, Lifestyles of the Rich and Aimless. Send your answers to with trivia in the subject line. Include your name and phone number with your answer. The deadline to answer is Tuesday, day of Autumn. Good luck!

Award winning service... Womens Council of Realtors Mobile App: owned and operatedNot only is my birthday on the longest day of the year, I will from now on be known as She of the Longest Running Birthday! That is the latest moniker bestowed upon me by one of my long time friends. Since everyone was so busy with guests, beach events and plans all summer, it took us until August to arrange our Casino Tripping Event. This has become a tradition and we have to do it no matter how long it takes us to get a day trip to Wind Creek would be easier than our usual annual Biloxi road trip. So on August 28 we set out early (9:30 a.m., yes, friends it was a.m. for real) in Christine Hewerdines huge, luxurious Suburban. With yours truly driving and Christine as the Navigator while our passengers were Becky Shearman, Rita Love-Perry and Shelley Johnson. We planned to meet Lois Jernigan and sister-in-law Marie Jernigan at the Casino. Marie is from Hendersonville, N.C. and had been visiting with Lois for She was the big winner of our group at Wind Creek. Good for her shes certainly overdue for some good luck. We all had tons of fun; some with larger wins and some with much smaller or no wins. For me, its more about the fun and mindless challenge. Its like a mini brain vacation because everything in my head goes away and nothing exists in those moments except that machine and me. For those of you concerned that our Queen Shugah Melanie Waite leaving the Country during the height of hurricane season, let me reassure yall that our Queen has everything covthing shed like to point out is that she will actually be closer to the area where the storms originate so she plans to squash em before they develop. A short time ago, Queen Shugah attended the Fall Symposium of Florida Retired Educators Association held in Ocala, Florida. Our Queen Shugah serves as the District 1 Director of the Central Time Zone section. During the State Legislative Board Meeting, attendees are required to be introduced in pairs. Each person introduces the other person with whom they are paired. Our Queen instructed (commanded) that she be introas Queen Shugah of the Wooly Booger Social Club. She then explained the Social Club and her responsibilities as Queen Shugah. Never without her special Queen Hurricane Cups, she explained and demonstrated the required ritual and promptly passed out cups to each attendee; but not before recruiting each one as her Wooly Booger Queen Shugah Ambassadors for the entire state. So, our dynamic Queen has an entire new Regiment at her command. Just try to tell me that you dont get a thrill (and a giggle) at the thought of all those retired educators drinking from those cups and performing the thoroughly enchanted with and so proud of our Queen Shugah. She also informed me that she is not above calling for an emergency Island Protection Bawl should there be a serious threat to our Island. She is also considering deputizing members in addition to her Call to all former Queen Shugahs for reinforcements before leaving. Seems to me like our Queen has covered all contingences and I have complete faith in her extraordinary abilities. And nobody has more extraordinary talents than our local Beach Chefs. Its my favorite time of year the Taste of the Beach! It would be yours too if you got to judge the How Sweet IT Is dessert contest sponsored by our very own island newspaper. I always want them all to win. I love that the contest is held on Saturday of the festival because it gives me the chance to scope out my favorites. When I return on Sunday, I am prepared with To Go containers, including zip-lock bags, aluminum foil and the ever faithful butter container. And dont forget a sturdy bag to transport your smorgasbord safely home. I spread it all out and Bill and I feast until its gone or, as usually happens, we get fat and full. Im excited that we have a cooking class for kids this year in addition to the Mermaid and Pirate Parade. Coolinary Kids is being taught by our own beach girl Lisa Burgess, Executive Chef at Wild Roots. Lisa has also catered our Krewe of Nereids breakfast on Parade Day and other events weve hosted. Ive already signed up my SissyGirl and shes really looking forward to it. Sissy will be bringing her Mermaid clothing along so shell be ready for the Parade afterwards. Its gonna be a fun, exciting and a delicious festival this year and you can get a taste of everything our restaurants offer at affordable prices. Mark your calendars so you dont forget; you do not want to miss this! What better time to share a recipe from one of our own: long time resident, business owner, amazing friend, spectacular Mattair. This recipe embodies one of our favorite catches from local waters and although this cooked just about any way you choose, this is an excellent recipe worthy of clipping and saving in your favorites. So, lets cook My Grouper Dish banana, chopped apple, chopped 1 can asparagus 5 cherry tomatoes, cut into fours 1 small onion, diced cup bread crumbs Garlic, tarragon, olive oil garlic together in a large zip-lock shake to coat. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spread olive oil on a cookie sheet and place breaded little olive oil and bake for 15 an additional 20 minutes, turning oven temperature down to cooking time in half.) In a saucepan, pour in only the asparagus juice adding banana, apple and onion. Cook until juice is almost gone then add garlic and tarragon (to taste) and cherry tomatoes. Cook another 5 minutes. Place cooked grouper on serving dish and pour sauce and serve with rice. Enjoy, share and dont forget the Taste of the Beach See ya in the kitchen..

Its nice to be able to treat our palates to some of the most salivating creations produced by our chefs on the beach. As I thought of this, I wondered, as a retired pastor, what kinds of foods were eaten by people of the First Century and before. has a wonderful discussion of the foods used in biblical times going as far back as Deuteronomy where the Israelites were promised a land of wheat and barley, and vines, and honey. They didnt have laboratories where they could determine the value of these foods, but evidently, discovered they were good and healthy. Grain is a readily available food product and the least amount food. Our energy level is raised through eating grains and it lowers our risk of type-2 diabetes and gallstones. Breads and cereals contain barley and because it has high fiber content it enhances our intestinal well-being. It also is thought to lower cholesterol and reduces our risk of colon cancer. If anyone needs a reason to drink red wine heres the answer: it is said to help in the avoidance of blood clots. One of the strangest foods was said to have been eaten by John the Baptist: Locusts. In some cultures, they are common. Gaia Vince, who is a world traveler, spoke of the difficulty of eating locusts The dilemma when served a locust is whether I choose to start with the six little legs (sometimes you need to fold them in a bit because they tend to trail out of your mouth otherwise), then the abdomen and crunch, swallow. ancestors understood the value of certain foods, but I will forego trying locusts. Im sure there wont be any of these delicacies at our Taste of the Beach however there will be lots of other offerings that will be very satisfying, and which gives us the opportunity to perhaps sample some foods we havent enjoyed before.

Some could even say harsh, but Im thinking candid is a good characterization. I got the idea when I was traveling recently from Orlando to Miami to Pensacola. I was on a full-sized home. I didnt actually count, but about half, no kidding, of the passengers were overweight or grossly overweight. There are accepted definitions for being overweight, obese or morbidly obese. A quick calculation is the Body Mass Index (BMI), which uses height and weight to determine your category. BMI values from 2529.9 are overweight; 30-39.9 is obese and 40 and above is grossly obese. According to the National Institutes of Health, two out of three Americans are overweight or obese and over one-third of the country is obese. These percentages are growing quickly, as the society gets fatter. The obesity rate in the United States has doubled since the 1960s. There are exceptions to the BMI calculation in that some people could weigh a lot for their height and be solid muscle. Body fat is probably another factor to consider in this discussion. But, in general, the United States has a serious health problem and were not alone in this as the rest of the world has like rates and trends. Associated health issues such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, stroke and osteoarthritis plague overweight and obese people. Throw in the massive cost of dealing with being very fat and you have a crisis. That number, by the way, is estimated as $150-200 billion and were all sharing it with our insurance costs. The reasons are varied. A small percentage is possibly due to genetic anomaly, another immobilizing disease or the like, but, in general, its due to energy imbalance. That term means youre ingesting more calories than youre expending. So, no, youre not big boned, youre not overweight because of your parents (unless you followed their diet), theres not more of (you) to love and its not your hormones, youre fat. If you stand up straight, look down and cant see your shoes, you have an issue. How big an issue is it? There are exceptions, but, in general, were talking about your life. You may live as long as slender, active people, but youre probably not going to really enjoy it. Youre going to have movement problems. Youre going to have breathing problems. Youre going to have extra aches and pains because of the stress youre putting on your system and sleep is probably not going to be your friend. Im not going to go into mental and emotional issues, but you know what they are. In the course of running and/ or health discussions, people have asked me how to lose weight. The answer is STOP what you are doing now because it isnt working. Stop being inactive. Stop worrying about sweating (its good for you). Stop eating obsessively. Stop having that extra adult beverage that makes you think that a triple-cheese pizza (or three leman acceptable food choice. Stop choosing to park yourself in front of your television or computer for extended periods instead of getting up and out. Stop going to all-you-can-eat restaurants. Stop sitting in drive-thrus park the dang car, get out, walk yourself inside and get your coffee. This is not rocket science or anything new youve watched health tips on television, read them on the Internet and probably opened a magazine or a newspaper at some point in time. Can you do it? Of course, you can. This is the only life on this planet you will have. Its time to take your well-being seriously. Get off your rear end and move. Watch what you eat. Choose less fat, less sugar and more fiber. You can more than reverse your energy imbalance expend more energy than you take in and see what happens. And be moderate in your alcohol intake it is wasted, useless calories and lots of sugar. Two Upcoming Events TriGulfCoast is holding its annual Members Only Triathlon on September 21.

Let a professional help!The mama sea turtles have stopped coming ashore to nest for now. Though weve said goodbye until next year, September is one of my favorite months as the focus switches from finding nests to watching them hatch. Its always a delight to attend a nest and witness the tiny hatchlings emerge and march into the Gulf. I think of September as a time when the island starts settling into a slower pace. Many permitted-patrollers nights are spent lying on the beach looking up at a night sky, watching the world slowly turn, and listening to the sea oats whisper. Of course, thats when they arent checking for sounds of baby sea turtles digging their way to the surface of a nest. The island has looked incredibly beautiful this summer with cumulus clouds scattered like giant cotton bolls across a vivid blue sky. I could spend hours watching clouds morph from one form to another, a childhood game I never outgrew. Even the towering clouds which frequently portend a storm add drama to photographs taken at dawn or at sunset. The Gulf, which was frequently calm this summer, dazzled us with ribbons of color from palest aqua to a dark sapphire rimming the horizon. Earlier this year I made a new Facebook friend and though wed never met I had heard her name for years because her godmother, Charlotte Spencer, is a friend of mine. Kayla Trent is a tenderedhearted young woman whose gift from a young age was saving kittens, or anything else that tugged at her heartstrings. Her latest rescues were a tiny kitten which had been thrown from a bridge, plus two others so small they had to be hand fed every few hours. However bad the case, Kayla did not shy from it. This September was very special for Kayla because she had finally received her teaching certificate and would have her own classroom, a room full of kindergartners. I knew she wanted to decorate it with something special for her students, but imagine my excitement when she drew a beautiful big sea turtle on the wall and had it painted. It turned out beautifully. One of Kaylas big dreams was to see a sea turtle nest hatch and I was hopeful I could help fulfill that this summer. Believe me, its harder that you might think. A lot of people want to know when the nest will hatch or beg us to call them when they start hatching. Well, baby sea turtles are like human babies in that they put in an appearance when they are darn good and ready. Many times that is 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. We dont have any turtle-whispering techniques. As for calling anyone when hatchlings start emerging, thats a bit like telling the nurse to let you know when the babys actually coming. The nurse gets REAL busy and the baby will be there before you arrive. Luckily Mother Nature and Kaylas good karma all worked together for her to be at a nest when it hatched last week. There was only the tiniest tip of a nose to be seen in the middle of the nest when we got there. Occasionally there was a bit of movement, but it was slow going. Eventually the hatchlings put in an appearance just before sunset. With perfect timing, the moon rose over the Gulf, providing a perfect light to guide the tiny creatures into the next chapter of their lives. Kayla and her friend, Heather Bartlett, who had been able to join us, helped to guide 63 baby loggerheads into the Gulf that evening. On Monday morning, Kaylas kindergartners enjoyed special photos and videos of her experience and heard choruses of ooohs and awwws from her class. Kaylas caring and passion was passed on to the next generation and has opened up a whole new world to them. For us, knowing our children are in the hands of teachers like Kayla, life is good.

Beer & Drink Specials for Saints Games & Monday Night FootballI've been hearing a lot of mixed reports from you guys, so let me comment all your posts. Lots of you have been talking about having no luck recently. Here is a little lesson learned from Rick and Trace Lewis, during one tions we've had. They informed me when that the wind is coming the bait balls are blown out to sea, away from the shore and this is why I was seeing no activity anywhere on the water. Keep this in mind while you're out there. Wind direction is very important Ive also been hearing from a lot of y'all that you're getting sometimes. That's why it's called the beautiful day (in case you haven't noticed lately we do live always another day; around here it never takes long til they start biting again. I'm also been getting reports slime and grass right now, too. Here's a quick link to Navarre which will give you a look at the ing some nice Pompano, Reds, early morning though. As the weather starts to change with fall coming, the water temperatures will really start dropping and we will see much more movement with the fish. Those Redfish aren't too terribly far from their fall run either. er we're having, stop by The Dock ing stories with me. Dont wait. This issue of Island Times is looking at island food, so we will focus on seafood. Over the last 20 years I have surveyed marine science students as to which seafood item they prefer. I have seen trends over time but one that has caught my eye is the increasing number of participants who do not like seafood. I was curious about the trend and asked those who responded why they disliked it. In my mind I was thinking they were concerned about the safety of seafood. There are numerous reports of high levels of mercury and other metals, and of course, there was the 2012 oil spill. Though these are concerns seafood is one of the healthier choices you an make. Fish and that are low in saturated fats, high prepared a way that increases porting that consuming seafood decreases cardiovascular disease. But what about mercury and levels can be quite high in some these can be found on the Florida Department of Health website. You should consume no more than one serving per week of these targeted species and women who are pregnant, considering pregnancy, or young children should not consume them at all. As far as our survey was concerned many were concerned like the taste. Of those who did like seafood, shrimp was the most popular with males and females terested in attending this program you can contact Dorothy Lee or Rick O'Connor at the extension the beachs news...worldwide myislandtimes.comDunbar Earns Yacht Club Big Mouth TitleLocal sailors competed in by the Pensacola Beach Yacht captained the Tryponite to the aboard Atlantic Union.
