Volume X, Number 14 Pensacola Beach, Florida October 28, 2014 Meet The CandidatesCurrently, the Santa Rosa Island Authority Board is comprised of six members. Each Escambia County Commissioner selects one appointee and the registered voters on Pensacola Beach are charged with electing one member. The 1947 Act establishing the SRIA only allowed for appointees. It was later amended to add the one elected member. McGuire Martin, Jim Morgan, Emily Baird, Doug Foote, TT Lowery and Larry Judge ran in the landmark 1983 election. McGuire won by 83 votes. He served as the elected representative until 1990 and as an appointee until 2005. He was followed by Michael ODonovan, George Eckes, Andrew Gigi, Scott Amberson and Thomas Campanella. The term lasts for two years. On November 4, voters on Pensacola Beach will once again have the opportunity to choose. The elected seat has not been contested since 2006. The two candidates are Terry Preston (photo left) and Campanella (photo right). Campanella has served for 12 years. Preston is the second woman ever to seek the elected position. Both are longtime beach residents

For this, at last, is the moment of truth. Islanders have long lamented their sad plightthat they may well have been the last outpost of civilization which had taxation without representation. This year, beach sandals got a bare toe in the door of government. The Pensacola Beach Business Association made a strong plea to the Northwest Florida Legislative Delegation, requesting the necessary amendment to the Santa Rosa Island Authority Charter to allow the election of a beach resident to the SRIA board. It happened. It actually did happen. Today, November 1, 1983, is a history making moment for the Beach. Amazingly, six contenders are battling for the single seat on the Island Authority. Their views are different, but their desires are sincere. Each, in his or her own way, vows to protect this Shangri La from the crunching jaws of overdevelopment and commercialism. Any of these candidates would fight ceaselessly toward that end. It is the one theme which runs through all six platforms. Beyond that, their views and stands on various beach problems and policies, do differ. Many of these candidates have studied the needs of the beach and have come up with truly valuable ideas to improve the island lifestyle. Above the fact that beach residents will have their voting member, they can glean from the platforms of these six individuals outstanding information, which can only lead to a more open, available, interested SRIA Board a Board which will listen to the residents with some degree of passion. It is possible that some of back to the Island and we will no longer be brushed off as one percent of the voting population, and therefore not entitled to any tax monies. Perhaps, the SRIA budget will undergo changes, so local income will be used for local projects. The possibilities are endless. This is the year of the Island man and woman. We can make our paradise an even greater place to live. Our district is Four. Our precinct is 94. Our polling place is the Pensacola Beach Church. The polls are open until 7 tonight. Advocates Elect New BoardPreston Retires To Run For SRIA SeatPensacola Beach Advocates voted unanimously to add Beach resident Jack Cerone to their Board during the October 20 Annual Meeting at the Beach Church. Due to expiring terms, two board positions were available. Ben Stevenson was re-elected to his Board seat. PBA President Terry Preston did not run because of her SRIA candidacy. Rounding out the Board are: Dan Smith, Elizabeth Hewson and JJ Waters. Glenn Windham is the Treasurer. Maria Weisnicht chairs the MembershipCommunications Committee. Jim Cox is the Governmental Affairs Committee chairman. Preston outlined the PBAs 2014 accomplishments: cials and Congressman Jeff Miller to draft Fee Simple Title legislation to be ready if leaseholders lost tax litigation. Worked with Escambia County and beach businesses to pass a new Noise Ordinance that restricts noise levels in residential neighborhoods. Helped draft a Sea Turtle Lighting Ordinance that was passed by Escambia County. Hosted Earth Day Island Style event with sea turtle education, recycling, free document shredding and a community yard sale. Worked with the Tourism Board to set up an independent Visit Pensacola board to better market our area using the millions of dollars each year from the Bed Tax.

Surveyed stakeholders for input on Fee Simple and future SRIA Worked with the local community to stop Party Down South sacola Beach this Spring.

BATTLING BRITTANYAfter performing a few gigs at the recent Pensacola Beach Songwriters Festival, Gulf Breeze High School student Brittany Cole tuned up her guitar for a musical showdown. She played acoustic guitar with some of her original songs during the Sixth Annual Gulf Breeze High Battle of the Bands, October 15. Her competitors included Reece Adams, Nick Lloyd, Noah Desimone, Ryan Post and David Bryan. BIG BIRTHDAYSusie Hastings wanted to be sure that everyone on the Beach got word that Denise Keever September 25. After all, what are friends for? Denise, who rides her bike to work at Flounders with the wind, lives on the Beach with husband Larry. Denise has not yet announced how many candles were on Susies cake last month, but that may be in the next issue. Stay tuned. GOOFY GUINNESSThe Number One Nauga Queen Danah Gibson contacted the Guinness Book of World Records to document and record the Worlds Largest Mardi Gras Pajama Party that the krewe hosts each year. In a courteous and direct manner, the World Record people said it was not a category they were interested in, however, the Naugas could compete in The largest sleep over/pyjama party category. In case you want to know, the record was set by 1,626 participants in an event organized by Girlguiding UK in Kent, UK, on 8 March 2008. Queen Danah has not yet announced if the Naugas will attempt to set a World Record. She said she needs to sleep on it. SYMPATHIESFriends and family bid a sad farewell to Clare Zelius, who passed away October 10. She lived on the beach for many years where she was well known for her sense of humor and sweet smile. Clare was always ready to lend a hand. She served the community in many ways including aboard the Krewe of Wrecks Board. She and her husband Dick, who preceded her in death, served in the krewes royal court. She is also preceded in death by her father, John David Carter and mother, Constance Edwina Daniels Carter; sisters, Joy Perry and Cathy Emma; brother, Michael Carter. She is survived by her mom, Gloria Carter; sisters, Juliana Sozansky, Delores Wernet and Mitzi Baisden; her children, Leigh Shearman Weaver, David Shearman, Charlie Shearman and their spouses, Michael Weaver, Terese Overlade and Carolyn Shearman; grandchildren, Cameron Shearman, Sarah Shearman and Kayla Shearman. Clare was laid to rest at Holy Cross Cemetery. She was 69 years-old. Beach bums were consulted. Answers were sent. Lifesavers and ladies rang in. The name of the bar that was located where the Gulfside Pavilion now stands was The Outrigger and its owner was Edward Bobo Jones. Sir Morrie Drees, the first Knight of the Trivia Roundtable posed the question. A few recalled the servant who owned the beach front location. Offshore Chuck Brower served as a Trivia Consultant aka Ask A Beach Bum as did The Oracle. Lady Kim of the House of Cole sought information from the all-knowing source. She commented, I knew it was the Outowned it. This was a team effort this time. Hope we are correct. Yes MLady. You and your team have scored! Everybodys favorite beach lifeguard Dave Greenwood said this was an easy one. The Outrigger was next door to the former small space that the Public Safety staff occupied. He knew both answers. Big Bob Dority sent the correct answer, too, although someone said he used a lifeline and had to phone a bum. Joanne Brooks, who holds the record as the Queen of Wrong Answers, has nailed this one. She on her years of bumming around the Beach. Please tell Morrie I am old enough that I can remember that The Outrigger was owned by Edward Bobo Jones, said Queen Jo. Felicia Fisher sent the correct bar name but could only muster Bo as the owners name. She was short a Bo and the hard to recall last name of Jones. Better luck next time, Fe. Cool guy Steve Headley hurried to send his answer which was late, but the most entertaining of the incorrect ones. I believe that it was Chan's Gulfside Grille, and the owner was Chan Cox. Chans was where Crabs now is located, and the TM does not believe Chan served on the SRIA. Think about the two entertaining people in the photo below. Can you identify them? this one. First and last names of both are required with your name and phone number. Send your answer to islandtimes@bellsouth. net with Trivia in the subject line. The winners going to get a new Island Times shirt! Deadline to answer is Voting Day, November 4. Good luck! ?Oct 26-31: Be on the lookout for "The Great Pumpkin." It could show up anytime, along with "The Bones of Fred McFee." Classic Stephen King novels will haunt the shelf, too. Nov 1-4: Word on the street is "it's time to go to the polls and vote!" On your way to and from, stop by and check out "Dear Mr. President," "White House Ladies," "24 Hours Inside The President's Bunker," or "George Washington's Rule of Civility and Decent Behaviour."

Award winning service... Womens Council of Realtors Mobile App: owned and operated Serving Gulf Breeze and the Beaches since 1987 Master of Laws These times, they are a changing. And the only consistency in life is change. Its inevitable but that doesnt mean I have to like it. I wouldnt be so opposed to change if I could make the changes. Of course if everyone operated on my daily system it would cause complete chaos, so never mind. Ill spare yall that! Other changes I have witnessed over the years are the magnitude of difference in the celebration of Halloween. Centuries ago when I was a young child, my siblings and I looked forward to Halloween all year. But back then we didnt have candy every day. Instead our treats were fresh fruits, raw vegetables from the garden, boiled peanuts and the delicious sweets my Mother cooked (cakes, pies, fruit turnovers, and even biscuits cause with butter and sugar thats some good eating). As much as we complained then, I would do almost anything to have my Mama back to make those unbelievable tastes of home just once. We didnt know that those recipes were mostly made from memory or how precious they would become. Sometimes wed have a nickel or dime from picking up Coke bottles along the roadside and Mama or Daddy would take us to the store to sell them. Then wed get to buy a bag of penny candy. That could take a long time. For one thing it really cost a penny and you would waver between candy that would be gone quickly or candy that lasted longer (such as between a chocolate candy bar or a Sugar Daddy sucker). Whatever you chose you would still end up with a small bag full of candy and I can still recall that feeling of pure joy. But Halloween meant a large bag of candy all at one time. We would agonize over costumes which had to mainly be made of whatever was available at home. Mama would be almost as excited as we were and even more creative. We used our imaginations. We lived in the country but our neighborhood grew fairly quickly and some years we would Trick or Treat around the block. Lots of families had home-made treats such as popcorn balls, cookies and once we even got cornbread. That was from a neighbor Mrs. Apperson who forgot it was Halloween, but she had some fresh cornbread. Imagination plays a large part politician learns is what their constituents want to hear. The second thing is telling you exactly that, while making you believe. The only time I remember my Mama being actively involved in politics was in defense of everyones Right to Choose. I dont remember the details because I was too young. What I do remember is that she and her friend Miss Nadine commandeered all the kids, drove us to more than one grocery store parking lot where we dis(well I didnt) and offered red, white and blue ribbon banners a part of my Mama I had never seen and it was amazing and impressive. Her passion in her actions and belief cemented it all in my mind and to this day (and beyond) I believe in and respect every persons right to make their own choices, regardless the circumstances. However, if you make bad choices, you also need to be responsible for them, own them and learn from them. Ive been a registered voter since the day I was old enough liever that if you dont vote, then you do not have the right to complain! So, good luck and happy voting as you head for the polls. with your choice. Maybe youll have something good waiting for you in the kitchen when you get home; such as this weeks recipe. If you think pumpkins were only for making Jack-O-Lanterns, youre wrong. So, lets cook Soup in a Pumpkin 3 to 4 lb. Cheese Pumpkin (also called Cinderella pumpkins) 1 Tbsp. Rosemary (or 2 sprigs fresh) 1 Tbsp. Thyme (3 sprigs fresh) Cup chopped green onions 3 Cups chicken stock (or broth) 1 Tbsp. ground Black Pepper Cup Parmesan cheese, grated (plus more for topping soup, if desired) Cut stem from pumpkin and remove. Scoop out seeds and discard. Put all ingredients in the order listed in the scoopedout pumpkin and replace stem. Place pumpkin on a parchment paper lined baking pan. Bake at 400 degrees until exterior of pumpkin is golden brown and shiny and inside is tender; approximately 45 minutes to one hour. (If pumpkin browns too quickly, reduce temperature to 375 degrees). To serve, remove stem and scoop tender pumpkin into bowls, then ladle broth on top. Add more Parmesan cheese or black pepper, if desired. Enjoy, share and please Vote on November 4! See ya in the kitchenShugah Shows StrengthBe advised that the Wooly Boogers think Queen Shugah Melanie Waite befuddled the seasonal hurricane forecasters in NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. They blamed lack of storms on a weak African monsoon. No storms for our shores, said Queen Shugah. Stay tuned for the date of the Kiss the Hurricane Season Goodbye Bawl!

Not all give candy, however, that is the most desired offering. Halloween is not appreciated by all people, but it provides a diversion for our children in this time between the beginning of school and the Thanksgiving days off. There is not complete agreement on the beginnings of Halloween some say it is a Celtic observance, while others claim it has a Christian background associated with All Hallows Eve. Whatever its origin, a now tradition is beginning to emerge called Ghosting or the Phantom, but more often it is called Halloween Boo-ing. Its generally a neighborhood event in which one neighbor anonymously takes a small gift to a neighbor, leaves it on the doorstep, along with a sign that says Youve been boo-ed! An instruction note is left inviting the neighbor to put together two small gifts and to do the same to their neighbors, leaving the instruction sheet along with a You have been boo-ed sign, and soon the whole neighborhood will have been boo-ed. It can build a sense of fun in our local communities and, after all, why let our children have all the fun when we can release the child within us and enjoy it as well. To download a copy of one of the signs, just Google Halloween Boo and let the fun begin! Leaving the signs on our lawns will let us know all who have been boo-ed. Gulf Islands National Seashore will present a Living History Camp, November 15 16 and Candlelight Tour of Fort Pickens, November 15. During daytime hours, the event features a living history encampment by Company C, 3rd U.S. Infantry (1860-1865). A ranger led tour of Fort Pickens will be at 2 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. The fort will remain open from 7 to 9:00 p.m. Saturday, November 15 for self-guided candlelight tours. The event provides a rare opportunity to experience the fort at night. Costumed reenactors will be stationed around the fort answering visitor questions and providing information about Pensacola during the Civil War. Visitors should arrive no later than 8:30 p.m. Although the fort will be lighted with candles, appropriately for the evening weather and wear comfortable walking shoes.

PAGE 8 Island Times October 28, 2014 The Lizzards Tongue... It's been 18 months since we rescued our furever family member, an English Pointer we named Pete. When he arrived on Pensacola Beach in May 2013, he just wasn't the dog he was meant to be. To put it quite simply, his time spent roaming the woods of north Santa Rosa County and his extended stay in the animal shelter, had not done him any favors. Though his overall health was decent, his dawg spirit was non-existent. He didn't bark. He didn't shed. He didn't want anything to do with his new family. He was a no trick, no treat kind of dog. But my oh my, how the fur sheds when you are having fun. How the cats and critters scoot when the baritone ruff echoes among the palm trees and sea oats. How it's so easy to share a slice of bacon while making breakfast when the kitchen is Pete has finally become the dog he was meant to be. Full of tricks and totally appreciative of treats. Unfortunately there are a lot of other cats and dogs in our local shelters that through no fault of their own have been you are able, take the time to drop off some treats to either the Santa Rosa County or Escambia County Animal Shelters, located at 4451 Pine Forest Road, Milton, and 200 West Fairfield, Pensacola, respectively. Treats come in many forms: monetary donations, food, leashes and collars, toys, pet sweaters, towels, blankets, and household products such as paper towels and bleach. Or best of all, treat yourself and adopt possibly a black cat or a dog that howls at the moon. Who knows, you might even get lucky and bring home a furever friend that after lots of love and patience, will let you trick him into wearing a humiliating Halloween costume even without the promise of a treat. Until next time...Pete may live the life of a retired pirate on Pensacola Beach, but secretly he dreams of being a full-time Texas rodeo dog. Well maybe not exactly. Extra belly scratches and a piece of beef jerky followed this photo shoot.

FREE!Battling Bat Myths As we enter Halloween season, one of the most popular images of this spooky time of year is that of a bat. The creepy tales of vampire bats and Dracula are enduring and certainly exciting. Unfortunately, many negative connotations exist around this fascinating species. Perhaps youve heard they carry rabies, that they will fly into your hair, or that many of them are considered blood-sucking vampire bats? In fact, there are many benefits to having bats in ones landscape and neighborhood. The predominant role of bats in our local ecosystem is that of insect predator. A single little brown bat (Myotis lucifugis), which is native to the Florida Panhandle, can eat 1,200 mosquitoes in one hour of feeding. Other species in warmer climates eat fruit and play a major role in reforesting rain forests in Central and South Americaafter digesting the fruit they leave seeds in their droppings (guano is excellent fertilizer, by the way), helping replant 95 percent of the very trees they feed upon. Some species feed on nectar, filling the same role as bees and helping pollinate bananas, avocados, cashews, and figs. Contrary to popular belief, bats are not blind and many have excellent vision. However, they do rely heavily on echolocation to sense prey and are extremely accurate hunters. They often fly erratically because they are chasing very small flying insects, so the only reason one would end up in a persons hair is if a mosquito flew through it with a bat in chase! While vampire bats do exist, there are only 3 out of over 1,000 species of bats that feed on blood, and they all live in Latin America. They also tend to feed on the blood of livestock. Human contact with bats is rare unless the bats are sick, which is why one found on the ground should be left alone. Rabies transmission from bats accounts for only one death per year in the United Statesa statistic much less than that of deaths from dog bites, bee stings, and lighting strikes. In fact, several towns in Texas with the highest populations of bats in the country have recorded zero human bat-transmitted rabies cases. Bat populations are declining in North America due to disease (particularly white-nose syndrome), loss of habitat and the slow reproductive cycle of bats. However, you can help the worlds only flying mammal by installing a bat house in your yard. Keep in mind that bats attracted to bat houses prefer to be in open areas away from trees (where their predators hide), and the house should be installed at least 12 feet in the air. Bat houses can be purchased or built rather simplykeep an eye out for Extension workshops near you, or visit Bat Conservation Internationals website for simple instructions ( Gail Walsh Massage & Skincare Co.913 Gulf Breeze Pkwy Harbourtown #31Appointments: 850-261-567860 minutes (not a spa hour!) starting at $65 Multi therapist located near the beach bridge850-261-5678See services & price list at MA#31796 MM#29635Ocean Hour Organizes Opal Beach Clean UpOcean Hour will be cleaning up Opal Beach from 9-10 a.m. Saturday, November 1.

If youre a sports fan of any type, you may well have seen some of the gripping drama of the event on television over the last 30 years. Kona (as this monumental race is commonly called) has captured the imagination of many people across the world for nearly four decades. Its the grueling event where Julie Moss was far ahead nearing the end of the run and kept collapsing from dehydration. A huge global television audience watched (and held its breath) as she crawled toward the Finish Line. Then, just yards from the end, she was passed by Kathleen McCartney. Its the race in which Dick Hoyt has pulled and pushed his quadriplegic son Rick through the 140.6 suffocating miles on petition that local triathlete Evan Malone fought his way through 13 hours. The race was conceived in 1977 by John and Judy Collins who were a Navy couple living in Honolulu. They came up with the idea of combining the three toughest endurance races in the state (the 2.4-mile Waikiki Roughwater Swim, the 115 mile Around Oahu Bike Race and the 26.2 mile Honolulu Marathon) into one event. In February 1978, the idea became reality as 15 people showed up in Waikiki to take on what was called the Ironman. The bike course was shortened to 112 ish near the marathon start. The race grew in stature and changed locations landing in Kailua-Kona in 1981. Kona, on the island of Hawaii, features barren lava per hour, near 100-degree heat and a blazing sun. The races there over the years are legendary and the winners include the greatest champions of the sport. Evan Malone has completed many triathlons including 15 Ironman races. Those 15 races were the same 140.6 mile distance and all sure he always had Kona in mind, World Championship. Recently, World Triathlon Corporation, which owns and conducts all the Ironman brand races, began a legacy lottery and Evan was selected to compete. After arriving on the Big Island on Monday, he spent the week preparing for the race and sight seeing. Friday afternoon, the tension and excitement ramped up as 2,187 athletes racked their bikes and put their gear into Transition over At 4:30 the next morning athletes began arriving for swim check-in and body marking. At 6:50 a.m. the male age group wave entered Kailua-Kona Bay and began the 2.4-mile swim. Many of us in the area were watching Evan by following live updates of his splits. Along the course there are numerous timing mats that captured his movements through the three disciplines. These times are then posted online allowing his progress to be monitored. He had a very good swim of 1 hour and seven minutes placing 679 a 6 minute and 17 second T1 (the swim to bike transition), he settled in for the 112-mile bike leg. Evan said as billed this is a big boy course mainly the bike. Due to the wind he was down in his aero bars only about half the time. Nasty crosswinds and gusts made for some shaky riding. It was Queen K Highway all the way to the turnaround point at Hawi and back. He went through many liters of water as well as 7 bottles of electrolytes. You are out there for a long, long time with continuing hydration and nutrition needs during the entire race. After 6 hours and 49 minutes he got off his Scott bicycle and racked it. He had averaged 16.41 miles per hour and was happy, Im sure, to be standing on terra transition) of 8 minutes and 43 seconds, he began running the 26.2 mile marathon which is the third discipline. anced, but then he encountered Palani Hill and that threw his cadence off. He struggled to remiles and then approached the epic Finish Line scene on AliI Drive. Spectators line the road on both sides, music is blaring and after 4 hours and 44 minutes of running, he heard the classic words from the race announcer Evan Malone, you are an Ironman! It was 12 hours and 55 minutes after he began the swim that morning. On November 1, hell do it all again at Ironman Florida. Evan Malone the Ironman
