Beach School Friendships Last a Lifetime

Members of the Pensacola
Beach School fifth grade class
agreed unanimously in their re-
sponse to the thmgs they liked the
most about their school. They
love looking out of the window
and seeing the sandy beach and
the Gulf of Mexico and they love
the "field trips" when they walk
to the Gulf to find the treasures
of the sea. They will be leaving
all that behind as they move up
to the sixth grade at Gulf Breeze
Middle School
But don't sell them short
They're ready to go, especially
since their friends will all be go-
ing with them Second on their
list of answers to the question
about what they liked best about
the Beach School were their

Most of this year's graduat-
mg students hoped for a future in
the sports world They wantedto
play intheNFL orthe MLB Four
of the nineteen want to become
veterinarians when they grow up.
One wanted to be a professional
fisherman, another a weapons
engineer, still another a Marine.
Every child had a clear idea of
what he or she wanted to be when
they finished school
And perhaps their fondness
for the D.A.R.E (Drug Abuse
Resistance Education) Program
will have an even greater impact
on their future. Most of the chil-
dren listed D.A RE taught by

kids some good advice She
graduated recently as the saluta-
torian of the Class of 2007 at Gulf
Breeze High School Juliana,
who has a Bright Futures Schol-
arship, will be attending the Uni-
versity of Florida to study either
pre-med or pre-law When she
showed up to have her picture
taken with the Beach School's
Class of 2007, she recalled fondly
that the school had the best play-
ground Her favorite teacher was
Marie Wright in the third grade
Then, Juliana picked up the
theme set by the fifth graders,
"The very best thing about the

Juliana's class, by Beach

Barefoot on the Beach

You may have come across a
news item in the PensacolaNews
Journal recently which sug-
gested you should bring your old
fireworks for the Fourth of July
celebration on Pensacola Beach.
If a story had been any farther
from the truth, it would have
landed on some other planet.
The facts are that, due to the
tenacity of the Pensacola Beach
Chamber of Commerce, Kaboom,
a sixty thousand dollar display,
will light up the skies over Santa
Rosa Sound onthe Fourthof July.
Scorched by the hurricane
damaged revenue stream, the
Santa Rosa Island Authority was
not ina positionto bringback the
fireworks this year. So, Beach and
Pensacola businesses, Fun Coast
Promotions and the Escambia
County Commission, dedicated
the funds to produce the extrava-
ganza. The fireworks which have
lain dormant for two years will be
back again restoring the faith of

the Beach to entertain its
guests. The good times are re-
This feat was just one ac-
complishment of the Beach
Chamber, which for all practical
purposes was washed into the
Gulf of Mexico by Ivan. The
Chamber revitalized itself this
spring, elected officers and
board of directors. And began
the arduous task of creating
better times on the Beach, not
only for the businesses, but for
everyone else.
Their first major accom-
plishment was working with the
SRIA and Escambia County to
help insure the success of the
April 14 Clean Up day. Then,
they reached out to businesses
and individuals asking for help
to produce the fireworks. The
response, so quickly forthcom-
ing, and so generous, proved
the need to restore the Inde-
pendence Day spirit on the

The Chamber supported
the ferry service from Pensacola
Beach Marina to Ft. Pickens
rather than a service from down-
town. They wrote letters and
urged the SRIA to do the same.
They caught the ear of govern-
ment officials, and the ferry ser-
vice will begin soon.
As the Chamber continues
to grow, the membership is tak-
ing on some gigantic tasks.

approval to name the Via de

Gowens Park." They plan a

ist Development Council (they
are the ones who divvy out the
bed tax money) for their Holi-
day season festivities. The
Chamber is planning a two week
promotion to showcase the Is-
land during Christmas and New
Maybe you have heard
that the Chamber has renewed
spirit and enthusiasm. Now, it
seems nothing will stand in their

way as they continue to pro-
mote the Beach as a family ori-
ented haven.
The highlights of their
most recent activities, coupled
with their plans for the future,
make the Chamber look mighty
impressive. The reorganization
of the Chamber might be just
what the Beach needed.
Pensacola Beach is a year
round destination. And, yet, it
is a home to the residents who
welcome special events. Forget
terms like slumps, slow weeks,
and shoulder seasons. Think of
festivals and fun. And, please

Road Construction Gets Governmental Green Light

The good news is that both
the road between Pensacola
Beach and Navarre Beach and the
road to Ft. Pickens will be rebuilt.
The bad news is the construction
will take a while. Work will begin
on the Navarre Beach road this
fall and should be complete be-
fore Memorial Day of 2008. The
Ft. Pickens road is expected to be
complete in the Spring of 2008.
Jerry Eubanks, Gulf Islands
National Seashore superinten-
dent, says the Navarre road will
be constructed in three phases:

1) Navarre Beach to Opal Beach,
2) Parking lot at Opal Beach, and
3) Opal Beach to Pensacola
"Approximately 65 percent of
the road still exists," Eubanks
said. "The new construction will
be a sacrificial road incase a storm
comes through the area."
Eubanks pointed out that a
sacrificial road is constructed in
a less expensive way and that a
hardened road has environmen-
tal impacts which were consid-

"It is very important to note
that although the work will be
advertised as a one-lane road from
Opal Beach to Pensacola Beach
that the design has already been
changed and a two-lane road will
be built," Eubanks said.
The Ft. Pickens road process
has started and there is an agree-
ment in principle on the design
and construction. Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation will build
the road. Funding has been se-
cured for the design and con-
struction of both arteries.

Think Big!

Ifyou like going to extremes, you may
love big wines While traditional wines
are generally lower in alcohol, full of fi-
nesse, and age gracefully, there is nothing
subtle about a big wine. Such wines are
produced from grapes that are fully ripe
with rich flavors, lots offruit, and relatively
high alcohol content Big wines are also
ready to be drunk as soon as they are
released.One grapethathasalwaysfound
itselfinthe big-wine categoryisZinfandel,
which has intense spicy flavors. Other
grapes with big-wine potential are Syrah
andGrenache Because big wines have
little acidity, they are not exactly food-
riendy,butthey can stand ontheirown or
stand upto Intense meaty flavors.

HINT Big wines generally have alcohol
levelsof15 percent ormore.

Are you a big wine kind of person? You
can be big when you come to Beach

Even the State's Attorney

Author Jaroldeen Aslund
Edwards tells the story of taking
her mother to see some beautiful
daffodils. She wrote, "We turned
onto a small gravel road and I saw
a small church. On the far side of
the church, I saw a hand lettered
sign with an arrow that read, "Daf-
fodil Garden." We got out of the
car, each took a child's hand, and
I followed Carolyn down the path.
Then, as we turned a comer, I
looked up and gasped. Before me
lay the most glorious sight.
It looked as though someone
had taken a great vat of gold and
poured it over the mountain peak
and its surrounding slopes. The
flowers were planted in majestic,
swirling patterns, great ribbons
and swaths of deep orange,
creamy white, lemon yellow,
salmon pink, and saffron and but-
ter yellow. Each different-colored
variety was planted in large
groups so that it swirled and
flowed like its own river with its
own unique hue. There were five
acres offlowers.
'Who did this?' I asked
Carolyn. 'Just one woman,'
Carolyn answered. 'She lives on
the property. That's her home.'
Carolyn pointed to a well-kept A-
frame house, small and modestly
sitting in the midst of all that glory.
We walked up to the house.
On the patio, we saw a
poster. 'Answers to the Ques-
tions I Know You Are Asking',
was the headline. The first answer
was a simple one. '50,000 bulbs,'
The second answer was, 'One at
a time, by one woman. Two hands,

two feet, and one brain.' The third
answer was, 'Began in 1958.'
For me, that moment was a
life-changing experience. I
thought of this woman whom I
had never met, who, more than
forty years before, had begun,
one bulb at a time, to bring her
vision of beauty and joy to an
obscure mountaintop. Planting
one bulb at a time, year after year,
this unknown woman had forever
changed the world in which she
lived. One day at a time, she had
created something of extraordi-
nary magnificence, beauty, and
As we celebrate Memorial
Day, and remember the sacrifices
of so many down throughout the

do no better than to remember

small positive things we do each
day of our lives. We may not be
able to dramatically change the
world, but we can make our little
worlds a little brighter by doing
what we do best.

It's springtime! It's also the
time for congratulations and gift
giving. As you look at your list
ofgifts forthoseyoulove, I would
like to suggest a gift that's as
wonderful forthe recipient as it is
for the giver. It's a book that can
change your life, your weight, and
even your performance. In fact,
it's one of the greatest gifts you
can give, "Power Sleep."
Sumptuous comfort is some-
thing we always seek, and yet we
often avoid one of the most im-
portant and least expensive forms
of comfort: sleep.
If you have everbeen awake
in the middle of the night, for
hours, waiting on sleep to come
back to comfort you, it's time to
pick up a new book and read it.
"Power Sleep," by famed au-
thor Dr. James B. Maas, of Comell
University, gives you the oppor-
tunity to increase your own peak
sleep performance.
As a professor, Stephen H.
Weiss Presidential Fellow, and
past chairman of the Department
of Psychology at Cornell Univer-

sity, Dr Maas' well written, and
practical book will give you the
answers you need to become a
peak performer.
As noted in his book, he is a
recipient of the American Psy-
chological Association's Distin-
guished Educator Award. Dr.
Maas makes frequent appear-
ances on such programs as NBC
Nightly News, ABC's 20/20, the
Today show, and Good Morning
America, and has been featured
on The Opera Winfrey Show.
Sumptuous comfort will
come your way at no cost, if you
will simply allow yourself the free-
dom to seek the maximum com-
fort and luxury you can afford in
the privacy of your own bed and
bedroom. Givingyourbody and
mind the permission to seek the
sleep you truly need is something
only you can do.
Give yourself, and those you
love, the best gift the power of
a good night's sleep.
It will change your life, and
that of those you care most about.
Be blessed with rest

Using the right make-up
for your skin type

It's very important to use
cosmetics that are specifically
designed for your skin type,
whetheritbedry, oily, oracombo
of both. If you are not sure which
type you are, all you have to do
is washyourface with regularfa-
cial soap, then, about an hour later,
feel your skin. If it's tight, then
you have dry skin, if its shiny you
have oily skin. If one part is shiny
and one area tight, then you have
"combination" skin, which I think
most folks have.
Dry skinis good for the most
part, but you do need to take ex-
traprecautions, because it is more
likely to wrinkle. That means us-
ing a good, creamy moisturizer
twice a day, once under your
make-up in the morning, and then
again at night afteryouwashyour
face. A sun screen with an SPF of
45 or more and a deep moisturiz-
ing mask once a week would not
You have less breakouts
with dry skin is the big positive
here! Oily skinis much more likely
to break out, but then it tends not
to wrinkle as quickly! You should
wash your face three times a day,
but who has time for that? Using
the right product for your skin
type is very important, and you
don't have to spend a fortune on
them. Read the ingredients, often
it's the packaging you are paying
for. I have oily skin myself, and
have tried every product known
to man(I ama self-professed drug
store junkie).
No need to get really expen-
sive cleansers and creams when
you can get almost the same thing
ata much better price. Right now,
these are my "must- haves."
St. Ives Apricot Facial
Scrub. They make a scrub for all
skin types. It is really great and
runs about three bucks at the
Dollar Store.
Sea Breeze. Good for
freshening, and after you wash

your face. After Ivan, (we had no
hotwater, remember?), SeaBreeze
was like GOLD to me!
Bare minerals foundation.
This product is absolutely fabu-
lous! I cannot say enough about
it. You can sleep in it, for those of
us who just can't seem to take our
face off at night, its very light with
great coverage.
There are less expensive
knock offs of this make up every-
where now I have not tried them

myself, but alot of my clients
have, and love them!
Oil of Olay Face Lotion.
Time tested and still one of the
best lotions around.
Remember Memorial Day-
Start a new tradition this year.

T2IZ2AR.P' TonI7Ec <]
by E.K. Hewson t

For months, my next door
neighbor and I have been pseudo
training for a non-specified mara-
thon. In other words, schedules
permitting, during the week we've
been running just far enough to
be able to drink largecaramel lattes
without gaining weight.
We've even been putting in
the mileage on a weekend run as
well. That is howwejustify the 60-
mile round trip to the nearest book-
store. While running at a leisurely
pace, we convince ourselves that
a marathon guru has written anew
book and in order for us to take
another step we need that book
Once we arrive at the bookstore,
we browse the section on running,
thumb through a few books on
marathon training, and then pur-
chase mainly best sellers from the
New York Times' Best Seller list
which have nothing to do with
Last week, our sort of training
for a mystery marathon ended. I
guess you could say the time had
come for the rubberto hit the pave-
ment. My neighbor and I met at 6
a.m. in our connecting driveways
while our children were still sleep-
ing to finalize the plan. In less than
6 hours, we would be logging on
to our computers, laying down the
plastic for our entry fees and do-
ing our best to secure two spots
into the Marine Corps Marathon,
aptly nicknamed the People's
Marathon because it is the 4th larg-
est in the U.S. and 7th largest in
the world Noon was the official
start time. I had declined multiple
offers to substitute teach on that
day and she was picking up her
daughter an hour early from pre-
school. We had no intentions of
being late.
We went over our pre-regis-
tration check lists one more time.
Computer home page set to Ma-
rine Corps Marathon. Check.
Credit card taped to screen.
Check. Watch alarm set for 1155
a.m. Check. Someone else ready
to enter you in case your com-
puter system crashes. Check.
Wine chilling in refrigerator for
post-entry celebration or to
drown sorrows. Check.
I went back home and began
my morning routine. It was busi-
ness as usual. Or was it? I heard an
alarm go off. I looked atmy watch.
Oh yeah, it was only 6:30 a.m. and
time for my son, Hary, to wake up
and get ready for school. I made
his breakfast and lunch, signed off
on homework, fed Charlie (the fam-

ily dog), took Charlie for a walk and
heard another alarm like noise. Oh
yeah, it was only 7:00 a.m. and it
was the microwave letting me low
that my hot tea was ready. When
my dryer buzzed, the iron beeped
and a construction truck loudly
signaled it was in reverse, I glanced
down at my watch. Oh my, it was
only 7:15 am. I had never noticed
all tie alarm-like, bell and whistle
reminders that filledmy day How
would I evermakeitto 11:55 a.m.?
"Mom, are you okay?" asked
Harry casually eating his breakfast
and reading the latest book on
Bionicles. "You seem a little
"Harry!" I exclaimed.
'Today's it. You know Mom is try-
ing to enter the Marine Corps
"Oh yeah," he said as if he
had remembered all along and be-
cause this was important to me, it
was even more important to him.
Then he handed me an index card
that he said he made for me before
he went to bed. On the unlined side
was written: NOTE TO SELF On
the lined side, he had made me a
complete set of directions as to
how to successfully get logged
onto the coveted marathon
website before anyone else. The
secret according to Harry was to
try to enter the site at 11:55 a.m.
Before he stepped onto the
school bus, he informed me that
he had set all the alarms upstairs
to go offat 11:30 a.m.
Before I knew it, four hours
had passed and I was turning off
alarms from clocks that I didn't
even know we owned. I had 30
minutes to go. I peeled and ate a
banana. Now I was down to 25
minutes. I walked Charlie, again.
That only took 5 minutes. He's
old and can't walk further than a
couple of houses and back. I
folded a load of towels, played
two rounds of Free Cell and
checked my e-mail. Then, beep,
beep, beep, beep, beep. It was the
joyous noise of my watch alarm.
It was 11:55. Taking Harry's ad-
vice, I clicked on Explorer and
right before my eyes was the Ma-
rine Corps Marathon website with
a flashing icon that said "Regis-
ter Online." In less than time than
it takes me to run a quarter-mile, I
was entered, t-shirted and tick-
eted for all of the event's pre- and
post-race celebrations. So was
my neighbor. Let the training be-

Island Times Newspaper has
the best advertisers. They unde-
niably provide the best services
and products. A few weeks ago
my HP computer bit the dust with
these farewell words, "shutdown
due to memory used up." I looked
inside Island Times and below
Nuts and Bolts was an ad for The
Stukey Group Computer Repair
in Your Home. I called and spoke
with Joe Stukey and later turned
over my sick HP to him. Within
two hours Joe had diagnosed the
problem, resolved it and had
brought my HP back from the
dead. He also backed up every-
thing I had saved on the hard
drive, but had not backed up on

that I needed to read his article

Bntes & Bits
Q: Why does my computer
shut down every time I use it?
A: Your computer is prob-
ably overheating. When a
computer's brain (officially called
the CPU) gets too hot, the com-
puter automatically shuts down.
This can be caused by blocked
vents near the computer's fan or
can be caused by failure of the
fan itself.
Vents can be blocked by
dust and pet hair --- or the air cir-
culation around the computer can
be insufficient if it is in an enclo-
The computer's CPU gets
hotter while you are using the
computer, which might explain
why it continues to run okay
when you are not using it. One
of the fans in the computer blows
directly on the CPU to reduce the
heat. When that fan stops work-
ing properly, the temperature of
the computer's brain shoots up.
If you are using a laptop
computer, keep m mind that us-
ing it on your lap may cause it to
overheat if your body is blocking
the intake vents on the bottom of
the computer. Computers, like
humans, can't stand too much
heat --- and over time it could
lead to a "terminal" meltdown.

Joe was able to retrieve all
the data from the original hard

who replaced the original hard
drive that it was impossible to re-
trieve anything from it. They
need to take lessons from Joe

help of any type, call Joe. He
knows his stuff.
