I am very impressed with myself because it did not go quite smoothly. As a matter of fact, I was rushing Womans Club and attended the September meeting when the president, Marilyn Ford proposed a name for membership. Without comment, no further ado, not so much as a whisper, the unanimous vote was in favor of taking her a breeze. When my name comes up, everyone will say yes and Ill smile and they will applaud and I will say thank you and well all dash to the party table and drink punch. That was the way it was supposed to be. So, President Ford (I love the sound of that) placed my name in nomination and immediately someone said, Whats her last name? Shirley Womack rushed to my rescue and to my defense and said, Waters. Jane Waters. A dead silence followed while that sank in. Waters. Who is she? came the voice. Shirley could not stand it. Jane Waters. She edits The Islander and then I couldnt stand it, and I said, If you dont vote for me and get me into this organization, I will write something bad about all of you. How long has she lived here? came the same voice, ignoring my threat. had blown it. Anybody who has only resided on the Island for a year can hardly have had time to prove herself. Goodbye, Barefoot. No Womans Club for you. For I knew all too well the history of these valiant ladies who had established their Womans Club many years ago with only a half dozen or so members. I knew that many of them had lived on the I felt like a weekend tourist at that point. But, I really love the Island, I muttered. Marilyn doesnt have a gavel, so she taps the table with the side of a gold bracelet to get order. We will vote now, she announced tersely. All in favor of Jane who has fulfilled the requirements of membership will please say aye. The vote was unanimous. I think. At least, I did not hear any nays. Possibly, someone abstained but well never know that for sure. When the business meeting broke up and before she could get to the goodies, I went over to Elsie Rossenbuck and told her I hoped she knew I was only kidding about that bad stuff in the paper. And then I got to know that sparkly little lady. She was one of my own kind a reporter for The Sentinel for sixteen years. Who else would demand to know who was being taken into the Womans Club? She asked questions and she got answers and I dont blame her a bit. And now that I proudly belong to this great group of Island gals, you just wait until the next name comes up for membership. With two newspaper women in the room, shes in double trouble. Sharpen up your short game.

PAGE 5 Island Times October 14, 2014 The Santa Rosa Island Au thority sent a letter back for more bite at their October 8 Full Board meeting. The letter, which will be sent to master leaseholders who have residential subleases, requests a copy of the sublease be sent to the Authority. The request is prompted by the possibility that fee simple title might be available to leaseholders at some future date. The Authority is not sure the master leaseholders will want to reveal the nature of their business relationships and the associated dollar amounts. One of the challenges that the Authority seeks to address is the disposition of subleases if master leases were to be converted to title. Board Member Dave Pavlock sees the request as predicated on fee simple title only and queried whether the master leaseholder would be compelled to grant his sublessees title or a reduction in fees. What if the master lease holder chooses not to give them title, asked Pavlock. Wouldnt that be his choice? Mike Stebbins, attorney for the Board, added that is a distinct possibility and that future legislation may have to deal with that. Board Chairman Tammy Bohannon reviewed the draft letter which she felt needed to be more authoritative, and if the master leaseholders do not respond, per haps the Authority could make the same request of the sublessees. The Board voted to have Bohannon and Stebbins amend the letter and bring it back to the October 22 Committee Meeting. The Board also gave full approval for the request for proissued. The planners would be tasked with analyzing the current SRIA and bringing forth a plan for an organization that would main tain operations at the same levels of service without lease fees as a funding source. The possible funding sources may or may not include ad valorem taxes, funding of public works and public safety from Escambia County and a resort fee imposed on commercial entities on Pensacola Beach. Chairman Tammy Bohannon requested an update on the Via de Luna median and Fort Pickens Road landscaping projects. BDI Engineers Mike Langston reported that the landscape projects were administered by Escambia County and funded by the Island The median landscape proj ect is almost complete, said Langston. There was a change order issued for the landscape on Ft. Pickens but Im not sure when Island Authority To Request Sublease Numbersthat will commence. Board member Thomas Campanella said a plan was to be brought to the Board for the landscape design, but no plan has yet to emerge. The Board received two thanks yous. Campanella presented fellow board members ceived from the Beach Church for the SRIAs assistance with non Johnson, a Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival volunteer, commended the board for their financial support of the music festival. Johnsons daughter is an up and coming star in Nashville. The SRIA Committees will meet Wednesday, October 22 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public.

Award winning service... Womens Council of Realtors Mobile App: owned and operatedI am enjoying this beautiful weather as long as I possibly can. For me the end is coming soon. Not my real end, I hope. I mean the time change on November 2, which I dread more every year. Well still have some great weather its just that there will be less hours in the day for me to enjoy it. I know its the same amount of hours, but Im not an early riser so by the time I start the day, its almost over (for most people anyway). Ive always envied those who wake up instantly, hop out of bed and are ready to go. But never in my life have I been one and I dont believe I ever will. Even as a restaurant owner who opened at 7 a.m. I never adjusted to having to wake up so early. I would set my clock at least 20 minutes ahead so when the alarm went off the time shown would literally shock me awake! Well, almost it still took a certain amount of black coffee to actually get moving. The shock factor would work most of the time bethat I was already late. Then the coffee would kick in and I could motivate enough to get moving. owning my job was the knowlThankfully the time change wont happen until next month cause my Social Calendar is tunately, everything seems to be happening on the same day. October 18 is very popular this year. Beginning in the wee hours of the morning is the American Legion Putt-Putt Tournament (10 a.m.). I understand that most of you think this is a perfectly reasonable hour, but I do not. This is prime sleeping time for yours truly. Still I love participating in this event and I think Ive only missed ment created by the late Chuck LeBum LOignon. My grandson Jesiah accompanied me several times but one year when he was about 5 or 6 he played in his Superman pajamas. As he said, Nanny they sorta look like regular clothes. In fact he looked so comfortable that our entire group decided wed play in our pajamas the next year. Thats exactly what Charlotte Spencer, Paulette Provost, Amy DePew, Christine Hewerdine, Judy LOignon, Lois Jernigan and I did. (Im sure I left someone out and maybe added someone who wasnt there. Im reminding yall that I reached 60 this year, I am also claiming artistic license. I dont consider my writing art but I love the sound of it, dont you?) I think that was also the year that Johnnie Bohannon was in town and decided to be our scorekeeper instead of playing. We quickly realized that Johnnie was not keeping actual score, but just writing down whatever number popped into her head. Since I dont really care about winning, it didnt matter to me. However, some of the others preferred to really play as opposed to made-up scoring. Well, apparently that didnt matter to Johnnie since she continued her creative scorekeeping. What did bother me was that Johnnie actually turned in the bogus scorecards! I expected her to throw them away. Imagine our surprise to be told about to beat some real professional golfers with his super low score. I didnt waste a second in telling them the cards should not have been turned in because the scores were not real. But we can all giggle now in imagining the surprise of those professionals had it really happened! So, watch out if Johnnies in town; thats all Im saying. The second event taking place on October 18 is granddaughter Sissys (Quincey Rowe) ninth birthday. Shes having a Halloween Birthday Party sometime that day, hopefully after the Putt-Putt Tournament but before the next event that same day. And since I was in the Orlando area recently, Sissy has a brand new shiny tiara to wear for her party. Of course Nanny has to deliver and arrange said tiara on Sissys beautiful blonde hair in addition to gifts and other treats. The third event that Id love to attend that same day is hosted by the Krewe of St. Patrick. Its called the Lost Souls Ball and non-members can purchase tickets since theyve invited the public to join them. So this year it looks like Ill be playing the Putt-Putt Tournament in my Halloween costume. Ill just have to keep in mind that it (and me) will have to last all day instead of the usual few hours. (At my age that has become a large issue; one I never saw coming either.) I hope I wont be the only one in costume. Yall know how hard I try to blend in. There is another day in the coming months that will be a multi-event day. I want to remind everyone so yall have time to plan accordingly. This year the Sisters of the Beach Christmas Brunch will take place on Sunday in December (We decided several years ago that the Brunch Day to make it easier for everyone to remember). That is also the same day as the Beach Chambers Christmas Parade. I starts at 11 a.m. at Flounders and the parade starts at 2 p.m. If you plan to participate in the parade just wear your parade costume to the Brunch and make arrangements for your throws and ride/ walk to line-up. Its not like an SOB parades without some sort of libations and/or spirits anyway! Why cant you do both? I know for sure that I can attend the Brunch and at least watch the Parade. I found a couple of extra minutes recently to play in cyberspace. Heres what I learned: My Aura color is white; my Past Life Animal is a Dolphin (Ill bet they didnt have Mermaids on their list); My Mental Disorder is that I need to stop thinking (which I already knew; if I could do that I could go to sleep!). And this delicious recipe was stop thinking and cook. Crock Pot Bacon Cheeseburger Soup 1 lb. ground beef/chuck 2 lbs. Velveeta cheese (if desired use spicy Mexican) 2 lbs. shredded Hash Browns 8 10 strips of cooked crisp bacon, crumbled Brown ground beef and drain well. Add the rest of ingredients mixing well. Ready when thoroughly heated. Enjoy, dont forget to share and wear a costume to the American Legion Putt-Putt Tournament! See ya in the kitchen

I overcame procrastination and turned in my income tax return for the year 2013. It would to have returned it by April 15, taxes and it was always a very painful experience. Although I now have a CPA, I still must get the information collected and turned in thats my nemesis. Sure, I remember the pain of the past, but my question to myself is, Why do I procrastinate doing an activity which I know will eventually have to be done? A little research uncovered the fact that we procrastinators generally lie to ourselves saying such things as, Ill feel more like doing this tomorrow, or Im more creative when under pressure. Tomorrow, however, the same scenario is repeated, and the creativeness is still covered. Jarod Kintz said, Starting tomorrow or if Im too busy putting things off, Ill start the following Day. Hara Marano wrote that procrastinators seek distractions such as checking email. Pablo Picasso said, Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone. George Bernard Shaw said, If you take too long in deciding what to do with your life, youll Christopher Parker said, Procrastination is like a credit card; its a lot of fun until you get the bill. The worst thing about procrastination is we waste the most precious asset a human can have: time. It was comforting to know that procrastinators are made not born. There is hope! The pay off is the feeling of freedom and satisfaction that comes from acting in a responsible manner. I feel that freedom and satisfaction this evening after turning in my information. Now, if I can just of April next year, Ill be able to experience that same freedom and satisfaction. It is a wonderful goal and I know it will surely cause my CPA to feel elated, too!Ocean Hour Hosts Clean Up At Fort PickensOcean Hour will be cleaning up at Fort Pickens from 9 10 a.m. Participants should meet at the Outpost Grocery Store.

PAGE 8 Island Times October 14, 2014 The Lizzards Tongue... Twenty-five years ago, Robert Fulghum's book, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, earned the number one spot on the New York Times Best-Seller list and a place on more than 7 million bookshelves worldwide. Through his essays, he reminded us all that the rules we lived by in kindergarten should be the rules we abide by for life. Share. Don't hit. Put things back where you found them. Clean up after yourself. Don't take things that aren't yours. Apologize. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Take a nap. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you. Draw, paint, sing, dance, play and work every day. And my personal favorite, learn some and think some. So you can only imagine my level of excitement when the Pensacola Beach Elementary School kindergarten class of the year would be to the Jane Waters Little Free Library. I gartners are the best students and kindergarten teachers are awesome in spite of common core standards and standardized testing. Somehow at this very tender age, the joy of learning is equally matched by the passion for teaching. I am not so sure bubble, test is the most accurate measurement of success for either. I believe listening to the students dialog and thoughts is. As I watched, my friends, the term their teacher Jennifer Neal uses to refer to her stu dents, exited their school bus in an orderly fashion and then took their seats at the library. No pushing. No shoving. No chanting hand on the hip, one on the lip. Ms. Neal, the bus driver, and a volunteer parent helped me pass out snack because at the Jane Waters Little Free Library eating while reading is highly encouraged, as is talking. And talk they did. After I introduced the book that I was going to read, How I Became A Pirate, by Melinda Long and David Shannon, one by one, their suntanned arms reached for the sky and each had something important to say. So I listened. Fiction is not real. I like your yellow house. That's the front of the book. There's the spine. He's the author. That's the title page. It says 'Wow' on my shirt. Wow is a very special word, encour aged Ms. Neal. It's onomatopoeia. (Yes, I had to use a dictionary to look up how to spell it.) It's also a palindrome. Noon. Mom. Anna. Excuse me Ms. Neal, is this your kindergar ten class or the AP English class from the high school? I asked before I started to read. I let my friends know that I would be doing my best Blackbeard imitation since he was a real pirate, even though the pirate in our story, Braid Beard, just hapIt was the perfect opportunity to acknowledge and validate both sides of the open and free thinking discussion we had just engaged in. Ms. Neal called for questions. I was just about ready to let my guard down when a little orange Cheeto crusted mouth began to speak. Did it really say Pensacola Beach? Yikes, was I really being busted by a kid who had probably already heard the story and caught me changing North Beach to Pensacola Beach? I had to think on my feet and quickly, too. In my version it does. Cool. As they returned to their school bus, each with a new book and a button that said, If you can read, you can do anything, it was very apparent to me that this PBES kindergarten class had and would always embrace the learn some and think some principle of life. Until next time... Cameron Hoeft and Liz Hewson, October 7 during Free Library. Note: When Liz was a Girl Scout leader, Camerons mom Jesse was a member of Lizs troop.

C elebrate, S a n t a R o s a S t y l e ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You could be caught in a torrent of advice from wellmeaning friends and colleagues this week. But remember, Lamb, you are at your best when you are your own inimitable self. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Expect strong efforts to get you to accept things as they are and not question them. But ignore all that and continue your inquiries until you're sure you have all the answers you need. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Heavier than usual family and workplace duties compete for your time this week. Try to strike a balance so that you're not overwhelmed by either. Pressures ease by week's end. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's a good time for the Moon Child to show off your uniquely inspired approach to the culinary skills -especially if they're directed toward impressing someone special. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might be happy about the re-emergence of a longdeferred deal. But don't pounce on it quite yet. Time can change things. Be sure the values you looked for before are still there. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Try to rein in your super-critical attitude, even if things aren't being done quite as you would prefer. Remember: What you say now could create an awkward situation later on. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although you can expect on-the-job cooperation from most of your colleagues this week, some people might insist on knowing more about your plans before they can accept them. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creating another way to do things is commendable. But you could find some resistance this week from folks who would rather stick with the tried-and-true than try something new. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You usually can keep your aim focused on your goal. But you might need to make adjustments to cope with unsteadiness factors that could arise over the course of the week. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) News arrives about a projected move. Be prepared to deal with a series of possible shifts, including starting and finishing times, and how much the budget will actually cover. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new relationship needs time to develop. Let things flow naturally. It could be a different story with a workplace situation, which might require faster and more focused attention. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Accept a compliment without trying to troll for any hidden reason beyond what was said. After all, don't you deserve to be praised every now and then? Of course you do. BORN THIS WEEK: You like to weigh all possibilities before making a decision. You would be a fine judge, or even be a star in a jury room. Before you get your gobble on this Thanksgiving, give thanks for a calorie-burning and thought provoking fun run at Premier Island Management Groups Fourth Annual Pensacola Beach Turkey Trot for Thought on Thursday, November 27 at 8:30 a.m. ProPreston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke University.

Uzdevenes, a longtime musician and owner of Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun, knew that music education programs were being cut or underfunded in most schools. With a core group of musicians and the support of his gang of weekly poker players, he deemed the proceeds from the tourney would go to the music department. Uzdevenes delivers the check to the Beach School Music director in person, usually at a presentation ceremony at the Schools Fall Festival. The much needed dollars have been spent on instruments, music and equipment that serves the Schools 142 students, according to Music Director Mary Holway. You dont need to be a wellseasoned poker player to participate in this tourney. Rookies and inexperienced players are welcome. Donations of at least $20 are requested and there is an opportunity to purchase additional chips.

Let a professional help!Jambo (hello everybody)! What do duct tape and WD40 have in common? They are a single womans go-to fix for any problem household or otherwise. One famous fix story involves Christmas trees and sturdy curtain rods. The continuous toppling Christmas tree almost ruined Santa's visit one year. While cooking dinner one evening, the first toppling occurred. Light bulbs crashing, glass ball decorations shattering, children crying and cats screeching. Our family cats felt the tree was fair game for climbing. From the cat's point of view it was placed inside the home as their personal play toy and amusement. Twice the tree et. al. toppled to the ground with the same drama and chaos ensuing. My children were convinced Santa Claus would not come to our home if the tree was in the horizontal position versus the vertical one. After frayed nerves for both the animal and human kingdom became unraveled, a solution presented itself. A roll of duct tape wrapped around the top of the Christmas tree continuing on to the center of the curtain rod, permanently securing its position in our family room. Santa Claus was definitely coming down our chimney Christmas Eve. The cats had a sturdy temporary climbing post and perch. Life returned to its abby-normal state. Do you have sore knees after working, repairing Christmas trees or exercise? Ease your pain and heal faster by going barefoot at least 30 minutes a day. Barefoot walking on the Beach fans suggest taking those shoes and flip-flops off. The barefoot aficionados will notice their leg muscles contracting properly, circulation improves and joints have the opportunity to experience their full range of motion. This 1-2-3 punch helps flush inflammatory chemicals out of your tissues. May I go so far as to say that duct tape, WD-40 and going barefoot could create world peace? Quaharini everyone. Keeping Turtles in the Dark The recent report of two turtle hatchlings hit by cars is a reminder to us all that October is the last official month of the sea turtle season. This time of year the hatchings are emerging and heading for the Gulf of Mexico. Though there are a variety of hazards these little guys face, artificial lighting is still the largest issue. Over the last 10 years 4050 percent of our turtle hatchlings have been disoriented by our artificial lighting. Disoriented hatchlings not only deal with traffic but also house pets and, after sunrise, dehydration. We again encourage residents and visitors to our beach to adopt turtle friendly practices. Lights: keep them low, keep them shielded and use turtle friendly bulbs that emit long wave light (yellow or red). Cut down on indoor lighting by moving lamps away from windows and drawing the shades. Beach Etiquette: do not forget to fill in holes and put away chairs and umbrellas at the end of the day. If residents were not aware, the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners did pass an exterior lighting ordinance during the Summer of 2013. Residents interested in knowing more about this ordinance and what it takes to become compliant can contact me at 850-475-5230 or I will be glad to come out and discuss your lighting situation. Let's do our part and try to help as many of these hatchlings reach the Gulf as we can. Come if you dare!PegLeg Petes Pirate Haunted House TUES, OCT 28 dark til 10 pm 1010 Ft. Pickens Road FREE!

Bytes & BitsBy Joe Stukey, Your Computer Pal Q: What is an Apple ID? A: An Apple ID is the way you sign in to use Apple products and services. Even if you dont own even one Apple product, you may have an Apple ID. For example, the iTunes music program may be on your Windows-based computer. In order to buy music from the Apple Store and play it with iTunes, you will need an Apple ID. When you get your first Apple product or service, you will create an Apple ID. It will be your primary email address, plus a new password. You should not create more than one Apple ID. Always use the same ID each time you purchase a new Apple product or use a new Apple service. Two IDs cannot be merged into one account. If you purchase music, movies, electronic books, or games under different accounts, you will not be able to see them all at the same time. Here are some of the services that require your Apple ID --iCloud, iMessage, iChat, iTunes, Facetime, Apple TV, Find My iPhone, Find My Friends, Game Center, and the iBooks Store. If you forget your Apple ID or password, you can go to the Apple ID website, which is There you can provide information that will help you locate your ID or replace the password. If you stop using the email address that you had been using as your Apple ID, you can sign into your Apple account and replace that email address with a new one. You notice at the new email address. You will need to sign out of all of the above services before making that change. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

First, the 19th annual Santa Rosa Island Triathlon was on Saturday starting from the Casino Beach area. Then TriGulfCoasts 5th annual Sea Turtle Triathlon for kids was on Sunday morning centered at Park East. They were two different, sold-out events with the same level of passion, enthusiasm and excitement. 1250 triathletes from 27 states and Guam were registered for the race on Saturday. The early-week forecast was for clearing skies on race day with brisk winds from the northwest. Getting closer to the weekend, it became apparent that the wind was going to be much stronger and the gusts were going to be in the mid-20 miles per hour range. Annually, we project a certain percentage of no-shows in this triathlon and in most of the others around the nation. Every year we sell out and usually about 250 athletes do not come to Pensacola Beach to compete. The forecast may have held down the numbers even more and although the field was enthusiastic and large, there were not as many as we had expected. Friday, it rained in the morning as our staff, volunteers and 20 Marines from Pensacola Naval Air Station built Transition (a fenced-in area of bike racks) in the Casino Beach parking lot. Transition serves at the physical center point of the race. They also built the lanes (with parade barricades) that guide athletes in from the swim in the Gulf of Mexico and out to Via De Luna for the bicycle leg. All in all, it hot and humid with a strong wind. The staff and volunteers were out working as early as 3 a.m. on Saturday morning. Signs were put up along the course, the Start line was set up and about 400 cones were set up on the road. Athletes began showing up at 5 a.m. and were starting to check into Transition and rack their bikes by 5:30 a.m. The excitement and buzz were palpable although the wind everyone to prepare for the race. Body marking was a challenge as the athletes were lined up for help getting their numbers on their shoulders. By 6:45 a.m., nearly the Gulf of Mexico shoreline just south of the Hilton hotel. Some were jogging down the beach to warm up. Many were in the water swimming to get in a rhythm to begin the race. Final safety precautions were announced several times over the public address system and then the very-talented Valerie Remich belted out the National Anthem. At 7 a.m. the and the race was on. Eleven more intervals. Even though the wind was well as we had no bicycle accidents reported. There were some not-so-fast athletes this year, but most of them did manage to comrun and the medals were placed around their necks the smiles and cheers were over-whelming. After that a great party ensued with good music, awards, great food, refreshments and a shared sense of accomplishment. For the staff and some senior volunteers there are still many tasks to be done to put the race to bed. In the end all could agree that once athletic event had come off very successfully on beautiful Santa Rosa Island. The energy level was raised to the maximum for a few short and delightful hours and then all was back to normal. Sunday morning was far different. The Sea Turtle Triathlon has had a few years of very tough weather for the kids. Its been cold. Its been windy. Its sprinkled on the children and we put them out on the course. This year, the conditions were perfect. Race Director Jim Hagy was very pleased with the Chamber of Commerce day that greeted the young athletes at Park East. In general controlling the parents is more difficult than corralling the young participants. However, the club had given them and they were on their best behavior. The race started with a calm Gulf of Mexico, sunny skies and moderate temperatures and the children were enthusiastic. as the kids sped through the swim, the bike and the run with very few incidents. The smiles and cheers at the end were overwhelming. The kids were excited, the parents were excited and all were enthusiastic for more multi-sport adventures in the future. Its hard to say which is better, a kid beaming as he or she finishes his first triathlon and receives the Finishers medal or adults who maybe doubted themselves and then found out they really did have it in them. Either way, it was a weekend of accomplishment as athletes of all ages toughed it out and all came out as winners. Murphy exits the water during the Santa Rosa Island time for the swim, bike and run was 1:51:47. Gulf Breeze High School student Alex Hernandez churns up the sand as he races from the Gulf heading for the transition area at the Santa Rosa Island triathlon, October 4. Hernandez held on to second place throughout the event behind defending champion and elite triathlete Brian Fleischmann of Colorado Springs. The sixteenyear-old completed 600 yard swim, 18 mile bike course and 5K in 1:17:11.
