Sherry Hobbs, the Mother of
the Year, the first to be so hon-
ored by the Island Times, is a
whirlwind mom. She not only
cares for her own three chil-
dren, but nurtures many others
through her volunteer teaching
at Hallmark Elementary School
in Pensacola and Gulf Breeze
Elementary School. She is also

into volunteer activists. She
has directed their work in rais-
ing funds for victims of
Katrina, Tsunamis, and most
recently, the Relay for Life for

Traffic flowing in and out of
the Beach Toll Booth will be
slower than usual until repairs
are completed according to a re-
port to the Pensacola Beach
Chamber of Commerce at their
monthly business meeting, April

ing to invite the businesses to the
school's open house on April 27
and to ask them to become Part-
ners-In-Education. Castleberry
said he felt families moved to the
Beach because of the great
"The Beach School is com-
mitted to quality education for
kids," he said. "We're keeping up
with what other schools are do-
ing. This is a good partnership
with the business community that
we wish to build."
Buck Lee, Santa Rosa Island
Authority general manager,
brought new information to the
meeting including the fact that
there is a million dollars in state
funding dedicated toward clean-
ing up Little Sabine Bay. Buck
said Rep. Dave Murzin and Sena-
tor Charlie Clary have been in-
strumental in securing this grant.
Buck reported that the park-
ing problems on Ariola Drive are
being addresses and that "No
Parking" signs had been installed
on the north side of the Gulfront
street. Buck said the Quietwater
parking lot would be restriped

this fall. He announced that con-
struction on Ft. Pickens Road
should be complete by July 1. The
Dunes Hotel should be open by
October 1, according to Buck.
"Great things are happening

lot of area for the public to en-
joy. The SRIA budget is down
$1.5 million but we are trudging

on the Beach.
"We repair and rebuild the
wooden trash receptacles at the
rate of about five per week," Wade

Public and Recreational Facilities
said. "People use them as firewood
or to help get their vehicles
unstuck from the sand. It's incred-
Wade said he felt his crews
were doing a very good job in the
core area. He said they sweep ev-
erything daily.

"If you find an area where we

Wade said. "We try to keep every-
one happy."
Buck Lee announced the fol-
lowing items would all be "bless-

The Clarion has paid
$260,580 in consideration fees
which will finance the $110,000

Five Flags Motel will possi-
bly pay a $254,000 consideration
Circle K property will be ad-
vertised for sale with a minimum
bid of $180,000. SRIA attorneys
are now reviewing the procedure.
The Full Board of the Author-
ity will meet Wednesday, May 10
at 5 p.m. at the SRIA office. The
meeting is open to the public.

Pensacola Beach residents
whose primary residence is a
trailer on their property will be
allowed to continue to live in the
trailers. All others must remove
their trailers. The Santa Rosa Is-
land Authority's Development and
Leasing Committee delivered this
ultimatum at their meeting on
May 3.
At the present time, there are
65 trailers on the Beach. Approxi-
mately, 40 of these trailers are used
as a primary residence.
Trailers create a damage po-
tential in storm conditions. FEMA
ties down its trailers, but private
owners are responsible for secur-
ing their trailers and would be ac-
countable for any damage the
trailer might do.
Mary Bolman, Administra-
tive and Leasing Department
manager, said, "It has been our
experience that the owners of pri-
vate trailers remove them from the
Island in the face of a storm to
protect the monetary investment
they have made in purchasing the
The deadline for removal of
noncomplying trailers was March
16, 2006, but legitimate requests
for extensions by permanent resi-
dents have been honored.
There was good news for
some trailer occupants, the
Pensacola Beach lifeguards. The
proposed two-story Public Safety
building had been put on hold due
to lack of SRIA funds after Hurri-
cane Ivan. Buck Lee, general man-
ager, presented information which
could lead to the start of building
the structure.
"It may be possible to use the
surplus from the Beach
renourishment funds to build the
Public Safety building," Buck said.
The Board voted to have staff
draft a request to Escambia County
to amend the bond documents to
authorize the use of those proceeds
to finance the construction of the

The recent release of the FCAT
scores placed Pensacola Beach El-
ementary School third graders in an
enviable position Fortwo years in a
row the classes have achievedalevel
of 100 percent, in math and read-
ing, an accomplishment not equaled
by any other elementary school in
Escambia or Santa Rosa counties.
The score means that every third
grader met or exceeded the Florida
State Proficiency levels. Marie
Wright is the third grade teacher.
Earlier, FCAT writing scores

were announced forthe fourth grad-
ers. PBES students scored a 4.1. The
Florida state average is 3.9.

teacher is the PBES writing coordi-
nator. She has taken the curriculum

and has written a book, "Sandollar
Writing." She will be teaching in-
structors at other schools how to
implement her curriculum this year,

Island Times is one-year-
old today. We believe this first
landmark for the Beach's very
own newspaper is cause for cel-
ebration. A year ago when we
launched the newspaper, we
promised to "bring back the
good times." We made this bold
statement at a time when pre-
carious conditions on the
Beach in the wake of multiple
storms would possibly not jus-
tify our re-entry into the pub-
lishing world. We knew what
kind of adversity we were fac-
ing, but we jumped in anyway,
driven by our unquenchable
desire to give Beach people a
vehicle that would accurately
cover all local happenings. We
put our whole heart and soul
into the production of Island
Times. And, it all worked.
It worked because we had
a base of loyal advertisers who
stayed with us one issue after
another. It worked because we
had a multitude of readers who
sent us delighted feedback. The

cial person, you will want to do

menu, but each mother will also
receive a rose.
Flounder's will be open for

cult as we had originally an-
ticipated. Today, we mail Is-

the local enthusiasts make us
humbly proud.
Most of you will have no-
ticed that the Island Times edi-
tor, Shelley Johnson, has made
the energizer bunny appear to
be marching in place. Shelley
is visible everywhere at ev-
ery meeting, party, festival, and
event large or small.
Her presence with camera
and notebook in hand trans-
lates into a newspaper filled
with stories of Pensacola
Beach's government, social
life, schools and churches,
businesses, and civic organiza-
tions. We have provided

from mid-may of 2005 until to-
day. We know, however, that
we are not perfect. We know

Letter To The Editor

Salty Speaks
My name is Salty. I have a
wonderful life. I have a large
fenced in yard with sun and
shade. I have a picnic table where
I can jump on to see what's go-
ing on outside my yard. My par-
ents take me for walks everyday.
I go in and out of the house as I
please. While on our walks I see
other dogs chained to trees or
posts all day long. Their family
members scream at them when
they bark as we pass. My parents
have reported these people for
cruelty, but animal services does

nothing. As long as the rope or
chain is three times the length
of the dog and that they have a
shelter usually a small, hot plas-
tic igloo. I think this is outra-
geous and wonder why these
people treat their dogs this way,
and why they even have them if
only to neglect and abuse them.
I came from the pound and have
never been chained up or caged
since. My parents love me.
Why can't all the other dogs
be treated with love?
Salty Uzdevenes

you have ideas about what we
may be missing. Just let us
know where we can improve.
We are well aware that we
must keep pace as the Beach
continues to rebuild and grow.
We have begun to take steps in
that direction. Our website is
up and running. Log onto
www.myislandtimes.com if you
want to download the paper
electronically. You can find out
how to get on the mailing list,
play the games, read the tal-
ented columnists. It's all there
for you. Also, we have added
four pages to our original for-
mat, which enables us to bring
you additional Beach news.
Simply put, the Beach desper-
ately needed its very own news-
paper. Now, it has one.
My experience this first
year with Island Times has re-
inforced a fact that I already
knew. We who live, work, and
play here are family. From the
stately towers of Portofino to
the few remaining cinder block
houses, we are all diehard
Beach dwellers headed in the
same direction, all chanting the
same mantra, "We will never
leave Pensacola Beach." And,
please note, Island Times is
here to stay.
We promise.

Sally Leaves Her Legacy at Our Lady

Sally Taylor, long-time ad-
ministrator of Our Lady of the
Assumption Mission, Pensacola
Beach, is retiring this month.
And this time, she really means
it! Sally tried to retire just before
Hurricane Ivan, and again before
Hurricane Dennis, both times
staying on to see the mission
through the reconstruction pro-
cess. May 15 will be Sally
Taylor's last day as an employee,
but she plans to continue attend-
ing Our Lady and volunteering,
she said.
"I'm not calling it retirement
this time," Sally said. "Calling
it retirement seems to bring on
hurricanes. I'm just not going to
show up for work anymore!"
Sally, who has worked for
the parish since 1997, volun-
teered as a Sunday School
teacher in the 1970s and 1980s.

Partners In Education Give PBES Major Financial Support

The Pensacola Beach El-
ementary School Board heard
some welcome news when Conna
O'Donovan, coordinator of the
Partners-In-Education program,
announced that the project had
raised $50,000. Conna told the
Board at their meeting on April
24 that additional checks prob-
ably would be received.
Other good news was the
receipt of a letter of congratula-
tions from Governor Jeb Bush,
saying the effort of officials and
parents to reopen the school was
PBES sent a globe to the
First Baptist Church in Gulf
Breeze and had a painting ready
to send to the Gulf Breeze United
Methodist Church as thank yous
for providing classroom space
while the Beach School was un-
dergoing renovation.
Speakers once again came
forward at the meeting to voice
their support for veteran Beach
School teacher, Marie Wright.
The issue of whether or not Marie
Wright's lease will be renewed
for next year, after her twenty-
four years of service to the school
will not be settled until some time

this month.
Debbie Campanella, long-
time Beach teacher, thanked the
Board for all she had learned
about the operation of the school
during the time she has been on
the Board. She told the Board,
however, that as a teacher of
many years she had to let them
know she supports Marie Wright.
"As a friend, educator, and
both of my children had her," she
said. "I want you to know that is
not the right thing to do to let
her go with just one more year."
Jane Kates, a parent who
had served on the Advisory
Council when the school went
from Escambia County to char-
ter status, told the Board that the
members were assured that
teachers who stayed were guar-
anteed that their jobs would be
"Those of us who were sit-
ting there, facing the future,
asked, and the intent was clear,"
she said. "What was said to us in
a simple way, certainly sounded
clear. These teachers would be
Marie Wright appeared be-
fore the Board and asked that

they make a decision on the mat-
ter, so she would know what to
do. Marie, who was named
Teacher of the Year at the Beach
School, asked the Board to give
her their reasons for their pro-
Marilyn Sundstrom, Board
secretary, voiced her concerns,
which she said had not been dis-
cussed or reported.
"I think we have lost sight
of a really, big issue. We have
seven teachers this year, and we

will have only six spots next
year," she said. "I think these are
some issues we need to talk
about. This is a difficult decision
we are having to face right now. "
There were two fifth grade
classes at the school this year, so
seven teachers were required.
One fifth grade class will be
eliminated for the coming year.
Board member Vernon
Niven summed up the comments
saying, "What I am hearing is
that we seem to have a verbal


commitment made by people who
were not on this Board. I cannot
possibly make a decision on what
verbal commitment was made or
not made at another time. Person-
ally, I am uncomfortable with this
conversation. Everyone speaks of
this verbal commitment. None of
the documentation tells me that.
This is difficult."
The next PBES, Inc. Board
meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Mon-
day, May 22, at the Beach School.
The meeting is open to the public.

If you're looking to drink a brew with
some history, check out English Porter.
As the name strongly suggests, this brew
was quite popular with London railway
workers of the 1700s. In fact, it was the
first "engineered" brew, in that it was a
mix of three different styles that was in-
tended to please the prevailing taste of
the English public. Port was a blend of
old ale, new ale, and mild ale, which pro-
duced a flavor that, naturally, possessed
characteristics of all three. In this coun-
try, porter became a popular microbrew
during the 1980s, when it was typically
brewed using a pale malt base with the
addition of chocolate or smoked brown
malt. This is one complex, interesting

Hint: If you want something even more

Ivan's Wake
When Hurricane Ivan hit we all went insane,
Our school was destroyed and Ivan was to blame.
We all were divided among different homes,
The power was out and so were the phones.
Some people left to stay with family and friends,
Other people stayed to build all over again.
The community was supportive, the school opened in GulfBreeze,
Our teachers worked hard and we were as happy as you please.
We started to rebuild our school on the beach,
Mr. Vernon guided us until our goal was reached.
Many people had worked hard and the day was finally here,
A year and four months later the doors opened with cheer
We wrote this poem to tell you why we're gathered here today,
To let you know we're thankful that you're helping us to stay.

TCross in the Sand

Dr. Chuck Randle
Pensacola Beach Community Church


The older I get the more I
regret that my Mother died at
such an early age. She was only
45 and I was 21. Fortunately, I
had those first seventeen years
before I graduated from high
school, joined the U. S. Army, re-
turned and started to college, and
married. She was a farmer's
wife. She wasn't a sophisticated
woman; never had been out of
Illinois, except to visit the Zoo
in St. Louis; never flew in an air-
plane; never visited a hair salon;
never enjoyed many of the things
that are so often taken for
granted today. Those things are
not important. What is impor-
tant, and what I vividly remem-
ber about my Mother, is that she
had a remarkable love for her
husband and her three children.
She was a good down-to-earth

cook and always had meals for
her family when it was meal
time. She worked in the garden
and canned vegetables and fruits
which were enjoyed during those
cold winter months. She made
applesauce in a large copper
kettle on an outdoor fire; made
cottage cheese by letting the milk
curdle and then hanging it on the
clothesline to remove all the ex-
cess moisture. She sewed
dresses for my sister and herself.
She did it all out of love for her
family and never complained.
Even during World War II, she
took ajob in a munitions factory
and worked shifts, often the op-
posite of my Father who also
worked in the same munitions
factory during those years. She
instilled within my older sister,
my younger brother, and myself,

the desire to achieve, to reach
beyond what we thought pos-
sible. I'm sorry she wasn't
around to see me graduate from
college (the first in our family to
do so), to graduate from seminary,
and to receive my doctor of min-
istry degree...just to know that her
teaching and example did not go
unheeded, and to see my children,
grandson, and great grandchil-
dren. I'mengaginginalittle nos-
talgia, but at times, even after 55
years, I catch glimpses of her in
my mind, and those moments en-
courage me to never give up the
desire to achieve, and to always
reach beyond what I think may be
possible. There are times when
mothers may think they have little
effect on their children- not true!
The love lives on...and on...and

When Hurricane Dennis
hit in July 2005, the Catholic
mission was two weeks from
reopening after repairs from
damage caused by Hurricane
Ivan in September 2004. The
pews had been moved in and
final preparations were being
made to rededicate the worship
space, said Parish Administra-
tor Sally Taylor. Hurricane

Dennis peeled the roof off the
church building. The roof then
landed on the parish hall,
nearly destroying it.
"We're all looking forward
to welcoming all to visit and
worship with us once again,"
said Taylor.

TA LIZZARD'S TONG E p Beach Gets Down With Tuesday Night Blues

As Island Times celebrates
its first anniversary, I have to
wonder if "newspapering" is an
inherited trait that is unknow-
ingly passed down from one gen-
eration to the next. Last summer
when my son, Harry, visited
Pensacola Beach, his Auntie
Shoux (alias Shelley Johnson,
editor of Island Times) put him
to work in the newspaper's cir-
culation department. As he dili-
gently and meticulously folded
his stack of Island Times, I
watched the ink from the news-
print rub off on his hands with
each crease and swipe. Soon he
had ink smudges on his face that
reminded me of the days when
27 years ago I used to deliver the
Beach's initial newspaper for
Jane Waters Cooper (alias my
mother and currently publisher
of Island Times). I secretly knew
last summer that "newspapering"
was in Harry's blood.
So it was no surprise to me
when he came home from school
with the second grade social stud-
ies homework assignment to pro-
duce a product or service that
others can consume that he cre-
ated a newspaper. Down Lego
Street, Vol. 1, Issue: 1, May 06,
published by Harry J. Hewson,
IV. His one-page color publica-
tion had two stories complete
with pictures and captions. Each
article carried the byline of his
imaginary staff writers of which
he had five.
He was overjoyed with his
final version, completely hand
written and drawn, and couldn't
wait to get to press. I just kept
hoping that my color ink car-
tridge would hold out for this
project and that his circulation
wasn't too large. He informed me
that his press run would be for
15 copies and could he have it
before 8 p.m. because he had to
be in bed by 8:30. Thirty min-
utes, according to him, was
enough time to fold Down Lego
Street and get it ready for distri-
Just like any newspaper pub-
lisher I've ever met, he scruti-
nized the pressman's work (that
would be me) and kept making
comments like the ink isn't dark
enough and the margins are get-
ting cut off. Now I know why
most web press operators are
surly. They have to deal with
newspaper publishers who are
demanding, overbearing and un-
der five feet tall. After all if news-

V L N/W --

paper publishers were suave,
debonair and six feet tall, they
would be called television an-
chors. Finally, all 15 copies were
printed, folded and put in his
backpack for school.
The following morning as he
bounded down the stairs, I no-
ticed he had a handful of strips
of paper. That is when he said
that he couldn't sleep and got up
in the middle of the night to make
subscription forms. Down Lego
Street is free if you want to pick
it up off his desk. It cost 25 cents
to have it delivered to your school
Well, congratulations Island
Times on your first anniversary.
It has been ajoy and an honor to
breathe life back into "The
Lizzard's Tongue." And who
knows, maybe a year from now I
will be celebrating the first an-
niversary of Down Lego Street.
It appears that "newspapering"
does seem to run in the family.
Until next time...

The Blues on the Beach con-
cert series is back for 2006 with
an exciting line up of bands play-
ing every Tuesday from 7-9 p.m.,
May through August at the
Gulfside Pavilion on Pensacola
Beach. The Reunion Band
kicked off the season on May 2
with their crowd-pleasing music.
Concerts are provided by the
Santa Rosa Island Authority and
supported by the Pensacola
Beach Chamber of Commerce.
"This is the perfect kick off
to the summer season on the
beach," said W. A. "Buck" Lee,
Santa Rosa Island Authority gen-
eral manager, when asked about
the concert. He also suggested,
"We don't want the crowd watch-
ing. We want them to bring their
dancing shoes."
The Reunion Band enter-
tained the capacity crowd with
"You've Lost that Loving Feel-
ing," "Mustang Sally" and "Do
You Believe in Magic." Band
members are seven old-time
Pensacola residents who love to
play music. Groovin' at the
Gulfside Pavilion at sunset were
Bill Harrell and Charlyne
Kilpatrick, lead singers; Hank

Ross Orenstein

Bell on lead guitar, Ed Nickinson
on guitar and vocals, former

Well it's that time again.
Yeah, summer surf is on the way.
The movie "The Endless
Summer" was about surfers trav-
eling the planet in search of per-
fect waves, following the Sun.
Well, for us that'sjust not the
case. You see, summer swells
across Florida are not exactly the
swells worth traveling great dis-
tances for unless they are tropi-
cal in nature.
Summer is high pressure,
hot temps and small surf.
We really seek winter swells,
but the endless winter, just
doesn't sound right.
Summer here means crowds
of people riding everything from
surfboards to rafts.
All floating around waiting
for that big swell - and we wait
and wait!
Out of the whole year, we
need surf forecasting now more
than ever.
So, here's some web sites

S urf

by Freddy Esposito

that will help in our endeavor.
and, of course, my site
Using these sites is quite
easy and will teach you how to
predict swells and weather for
our area.
Learning what makes surf is
essential to our sport, informa-
tion is key. Locally, there are
some surf sites that report and
predict swell action. Plus there
are great pictures of our swells
and surfers.

Round Up Household Chemicals ByThe Shore

and Electronics For Free Disposal
Beach Residents Can Rid Homes ofHazardous Materials

If you have been spring
cleaning your beach house and
have some odd items to get rid
of consider this. The Escambia
County Department of Solid
Waste Management is offering a
Regional Roundup from 8 a.m.
until noon on Saturday, May 13
at Bailey Middle School. All
county residents, with proof of
residency such as a driver's li-
cense, can properly dispose of
household hazardous waste
(HHW) and unwanted electron-
ics, and prevent possible damage
to the environment, people, or
animals. There is no charge for
the disposal.
Many people unknowingly
or carelessly throw away items
from the home that should not be
mixed with the regular garbage.
These items include aerosol cans,
swimming pool chemicals, home
maintenance products such as
cleaners and drain openers, paint
and paint products, lawn and

garden chemicals, and automo-
tive repair and maintenance
In addition, Escambia
County residents can bring un-
wanted electronics. These items
may contain lead, mercury, cad-
mium and other heavy metals.
Computers, TVs, copiers, fax
machines, microwaves and tele-
phones are all acceptable items
for electronics recycling.
These programs, along with
participation by the public, will
make a significant difference in
the amount of waste buried in the
Escambia County landfill, and
will reduce the risk of soil and
groundwater contamination, as
well as the risk of fires or dan-
gerous fumes from items that

Personal watercraft users
need to cool their jet within 300
yards of the National Seashore.
Superintendent Jerry Eubanks
announced today that the final
regulation for Personal Water-
craft (PWC) use at Gulf Islands
National Seashore is now in ef-
fect. The final rule allows PWC
use in all park waters which are
open to other types of watercraft,
but establishes a flat wake speed
zone within 300 yards from park
Eubanks stated, "The final
rule has been a long time com-
ing; we feel that this regulation
achieves balance in our goals of
providing visitor access, safety,
and protecting the valuable re-
sources under our care."
The final regulation can be
downloaded or viewed from the
Park's website at www.nps.gov/

lautya iach

By Danah & Gwen Gibson

In honor of Mother's Day, I
would like to share some tips
handed down from "The Women
of My Family." Some of these
might sound sort of strange, but
you have to remember-these are
from true G.R.I.T.S.- ranging
from 98-years-old on down!
You know how you can
smell a certain smell and it will
bring back a thought or place
to you? With my grandmothers,
it's the smell of Jergens hand
lotion (the kind in the old white
glass bottles) and Hawaiian
white ginger by Avon.
Mimi always had a bottle
of Ponds cold cream beside her
bed, used for removing make-
up, moisturizing overnight,
and her hands. She has always
had beautiful skin and this is
probably the reason.
Nanny never has been
much for face-painting, but she
always radiates beauty, with
her wit and compassion. So, the
beauty tip from Nanny would
be attitude!
Now for my mom, Jeanne's
beauty tricks. Masks made

from oats, salt and honey, for
exfoliating; egg-whites to
tighten and shrink your pores.
Only using your ring finger
around your eyes to pat on con-
cealer (less tugging). She
sometimes covers her face with
Vaseline, lets it soak in and
then takes a really hot shower,
which moisturizes dry skin.
That's all my mom. The main
thing she drilled in my head
was, and still is, put on some
lipstick! I don't care if we were
going to the mailbox, running
into a friend you haven't seen
in years, weddings, funerals,
the first question she asks is
"were you wearing your lip-
stick?" I am not kidding. Re-
member, this is coming from a
woman who will remove and
rip the head right off a mullet
straight from the gill net!
That's our mom and we could
not possibly love her more!
So, happy Mother's Day to
all the mothers! And if you
happen to see me without my lip-
stick on, do me a favor, please
don't tell my mom!

Get A Chip and A Chair Poker Games Awash on Beach

It's all for fun according to
the Texas Hold 'Em 4 Fun pro-
moter, Saltwater Rick
Uzvendenes. But the poker-faced
players who gathered around the
tables at the
Champions I
Tournament, Fri-
day, April 28,
might tend to
dispute that .
claim. The Para-
dise Bar's
soundside loca-
tion pitted past
weekly winners
in a poker show- .
down to crown a J
John Me
Champion for
April. Players in-
vited to play were Joe Damario,
Tex Atkinson, Justin Robbins,
Jeff Lockwood, and Karen
Farrington. Should a weekly
winner be unable to attend, an
alternate is invited.
"Sometimes the alternate
gets hot and takes all the chips,"
said Saltwater Rick. Alternate
player John McNamara got
pocket rockets on Tim Rinker in
the final hand and boated aces
over tens to claim his first Para-
dise Monthly Championship.
John McNamara, known at
the tables as J-Mac, took a big
win at the Islander Lounge over


Waldo Defindorfin on April 26.
The following week at the Is-
lander, Justin Robbins took
home his third win in three ap-
pearances at the tables. Vance
and Talesha
shared a tie

u p

nal table.

Anyone C
Do you ever have a question
about anything related to fishing
or boating and can't seem to find
the answer anywhere? Do I have
the answer for you -- or should I
say, the best all around website
for you to check out. Do not
blame me if once you are in, you
get "hooked" like I did. I don't
let a day go by without checking
the forum for any new informa-
tion. Whether you are a novice
or an avid angler, this is for you.
"I don't need any informa-
tion," you say. Maybe not, but
you could definitely learn
something or even buy or sell
something you have had for
years. Maybe someone is look-
ing for that particular item. Or,
if you are curious about what
is going on with the Surf Re-
port or who is catching what on
the pier and what are they us-
ing for bait, you can find it
here. Log onto
Check it out because I thought
it was people just talking
online about tackle and what
they caught that day but it re-
ally has a plethora of informa-
tion for everyone. I found where
I could get different accessories
and which ones would be best for
my kayak. Enough said, so if you
go to it and still don't like it,
maybe you need to give me all of
your outdoor and recreational
I am also looking for that
special outdoor fishing or boat-
ing story that is hard to believe.
If you say, "I have proof," then
let me know by email
PeteDRJr@Yahoo.com what
happened in 200 words or less
and maybe your story will gain
some credibility by being pub-
lished. The subject should be
"Island Times Fishing/Boating


A Kid


)ut There?
Story" and please send any pic-
tures along with your submis-
sion. I can't promise you any
money or luxurious prizes if
yours is picked but I will read
all that are submitted and each
submission is the property of
Island Times.
I look forward to reading
all about the ones that got away
and the mishaps of anglers and
boaters everywhere.

Don't Leave Your Husband Home Alone

Black Holes For Tools
I was looking for one of my
favorite saws the other day. It had
disappeared. I knew I had left it
either in the bedroom or in the
hallway. But I couldn't find it. It
went to Ralph's Black Hole in the
Garage for Tools; which ties into
my next blip.

Cleaning the job site
Ralph has never wanted to
clean the job site. Now I leave
for a short time and return to a
clean job site. The only thing I
can think of is, he got sucked into
the Black Hole in the Garage, it
spit him out, and it re-arranged
his brain patterns.

Wife's Disappearing Tool
Or all of the above may be
a plot to make me crazy because
my tools are disappearing and the
job site is clean.

Good Brother-in-law
My brother-in-law, Rich-
ard, always is on top of the lat-
est and greatest things coming
from the hardware stores. If
there were a Hardware Store
Hall of Fame, Richard would be
in it. He turned me on to this
new adhesive, Loctite Power
Grab, which doesn't require a
caulk gun. It sprays. How cool
is that? Maybe I should put that
on some of my tools before they
end up in the Black Hole in the
Garage. Except they might get
stuck to a certain person whose
name we won't say.

Painting shutters
I didn't know that resin and
oils would seep from cedar shut-
ters, but they do. I found a spe-
cial primer that prevents that.
Now if I could find my tools in
the Black Hole in the Garage, I
could get back to work!

Entries came from near and far, but these three brave souls successfully
searched the Island for pirates, never fearing their wrath or retribution. Winning
the first prize in the Island Times Pirates in Paradise contest was Christy Jones.
She wants to be a buccaneer. Second place went to Lisa Hassett and her secret
team of scalawags. Third prize was earned by the Beach Realtor who claims to
have known Don Tristan de Luna, Nan Harper.
