Hot Contest Shapes Up in District Four

Tom Banjanin
Incumbent Escambia
County Commissioner, Tom
Banjanin, has served the residents
of District 4 for twelve years, and
he wants to continue
with another term in
"There is no sub-
stitute for honesty and
experience," Tom said,
as he cited the fact that
he was the only com-
missioner who was not Tom Ba
involved in the recent
scandals which left him as the
sole commissioner to run the
"I kept the county running
smoothly without any disruption
of services, operations, or func-
tions," Tom said.
As the commissioner whose
district includes Pensacola
Beach, Tom aired his stand on
critical issues.
"I believe that Pensacola
Beach is basically built out, and
that the role of the Santa Rosa
Island Authority is maintenance
of the Island and not the promo-
tion of growth," he said.
Expanding on that issue,
Tom said he firmly supports no
change in the current density cap
on Pensacola Beach.
"I will fight any attempt to
raise the density cap or any other
change that will allow over de-
velopment with the building of
more high rise condominiums.
Enough is enough," Tom de-
Tom believes that any more
development in the core area


should only be single family resi-
dences rather than more condos.
Tom also maintains his inter-
est in the residents of Pensacola
Beach before, during and after
hurricanes strike.
He states his posi-
tion as follows:
Hurricane Evacua-
tion: I have initiated,
advocated and sup-
ported for years the
prime hurricane evacu-
ianin ation route up Highway
29 and up a widened
Alabama Highway 113
to 1-65. Two weeks ago, I voted
for 4 million dollars to complete
the financing of this route.
Post Hurricane Plan: I firmly
support the return of Island resi-
dents immediately after a hurri-
cane to secure their homes, cover
roofs, and to remove personal
items and valuables.
Hurricane Insurance: I
strongly support a County Com-
mission resolution calling for a
special session of the Florida
Legislature to deal with the insur-
ance crisis in Florida.
Pet Friendly Shelters: I
strongly support the creation of
pet friendly hurricane shelters for
evacuation locations for pets and
their owners.
Tom points with pride to his
record as a public servant. "I have
never been apart of the old guard,
or the Downtown crowd or spe-
cial interests," he said.
Although Tom contends that
he is not a career politician and
has always held other employ-
ment, he has served in elected

capacities in the Florida House of
Representatives for 6 years and
the Pensacola City Council for
six years. Tom, a colonel in the
United States Army Reserve, now
retired after 30 years of service,
has also been a professor at the
United States Naval War College
and an assistant United States
Attorney. He is the founder of
Crimestoppers and served as
chairman of the Escambia
County Development Commis-
sion which brought 6000 jobs to
the area.
Tom holds a Doctor of Law
and Doctor of Business Admin-
istration degrees. He is married
to his wife Peggy, and has one
grown child, Sari.
"There is no substitute for
experience, when making vital
public policy decisions," Tom
said. "I have the experience
needed to make these tough bud-
get and policy decisions to pro-
tect county citizens and to pro-
vide efficient and effective ser-
vices for our people."

Grover Robinson
Is Jill for Grover? Only if his
campaign does not interfere with
his honey-do chores at home. All
kidding aside, Grover Robinson's
wife, Jill and his children, Grover
V, 9, and Anna Lowery, 5, are
riding the campaign trail right
with him as he seeks the District
Four seat on the Escambia
County Commission. Pensacola

Grover Robinson is a
Pensacola Beach leaseholder with
definite thoughts on issues which
confront Beach residents. In re-
sponse to a question on his opin-
ion on Beach taxation, he said,
"Currently, the issue with Beach
taxes is in court, and the judicial
branch will provide the ultimate
decision. I will say that I think it is
important to have leaders who un-

county will have to make long term

Pensacola Beach centered on the
diversity of the area.
"I think we have a great com-

all three."
Additionally, Grover said the
Beach needs more parking, more
trash receptacles and a cleaner
Countywide, Grover's plat-
form is three fold: (1) Infrastruc-
ture, (2) Economic opportunity,
and (3) Quality of Life.
In summing up his campaign
and especially his focus on
Pensacola Beach, Grover said,
"As a Pensacola Beach lease-
holder, I am interested in protect-
ing the Island's natural beauty,
providing beach access to all citi-
zens, and managing growth on
the Island so that we offer resi-
dents and visitors first class
amenities. I believe the strength
of this Island is the diversity
which is created by the conser-
vation area, the single family resi-
dential neighborhoods, and the
commercial core. I believe we can
create an environment which is
conducive to all three of these con-
stituencies, but only in an atmo-
sphere of trust and cooperation."

Grover Robinson and incumbent Commissioner Tom Banjanin both Republicans will face off in the September 5 primary. The winner will go to the
General Election ballot, November 7 to face contenderAndy Kowalski, no party affiliation, and Tom Wells, write-in candidate.

Barefoot on the Beach

By Jane Waters Cooper

I used to think I didn't like to
work. As I drove to my office ev-
eryday, toward the end of the six-
teen years of publishing a news-
paper on Pensacola Beach, I must
admit, I yearned to retire. I
thought I just wanted to do what-
ever I pleased and never have to
write anything more than a gro-
cery list.
We, who worked at the news-
paper frequently spent our week-
ends covering events, and if we
were to enjoy a holiday, we had
to put in double time the day be-
fore and the day after. We always
had to work on Labor Day for
Monday was the deadline day for
the upcoming weekly. We never
took long vacations, and very few
short ones.
Poor me. I thought my only
pathway to happiness was to re-
tire. What I know now is that I
was having a ball. I was actually
loving every minute of being
smack in the middle of practically
everything that went on in the
Beach community. I saw friends
and met strangers every day. My
phone rang constantly.
If there were rumors, true sto-

ries, jokes, hassles, problems on
the Beach, we, at the newspaper
office, were the first to know. As I
look back now, it was such an ex-
citing time. I wish I had appreci-
ated it more.
Anyway, at the end of March
in 1995, Ihung it up. Walked away
from the newspaper with a big
grin on my face. Now, I was free
to do whatever I wanted, not nec-
essarily what was expected of me.
My husband-to-be, Frank
Cooper also sold his business
and retired in 1995. He looked for-
ward to spending countless care-
free hours on his boat and the
"do nothing" job of reigning over
the Krewe of Wrecks for a year.
We were married in July, and life
became a bowl of cherries. No
Actually, one pit did show
up to mar our free wheeling
lifestyle. Hurricane Opal blew us
out of our house from October to
December. When we returned
home, we began to do what most
retirees do, we went visiting. We
drove to Houston to see my sis-
ter, and made many trips to Wis-
consin, California, Maryland and

Tee Up For Golf

Tourney Signs

Atlanta to see our children.
We flew to San Diego to see
the America's Cup. We went to
Mexico twice. We spent a month
criss-crossing the western United
States. We took short hops to
New Orleans, Biloxi, and South
Louisiana. We spent weeks cruis-
ing on our boat. Every year, on
our anniversary, we returned to
Cedar Key, where we were mar-
ried. Somewhere along the line,
our constant indulgences in plea-
sure began to grow a bit tiresome.
So, we took a break.
After two years, of riding
that retiree's circuit, I sat down at
my desk one day and began writ-
ing a book which was eventually
published, "To The Beat of an
Island Drum." So much for gro-
cery lists.
I have found that retirement
does not offer protection against
hardships. Like the hurricane dev-
astation we have all recently en-
dured. And whenyou least expect
it, some physical ailment can
come along and take you out of
the loop. None of that stops your
desire to do more than play
shuffleboard or rock the day
Retirement doesn't fit a lot of
people. Frank and I are two of
those people. So here's a tip, if,
right now, you are working every-
day, perhaps it is time to count
your blessings as well as your

money. Don't worry about retire-
ment, it will happen.
As for Frank and me, we do
not belong to AARP. We belong
to Pensacola Beach. If there is a
charitable cause, someone in
need, a project that requires help,
we're there.
And, so it's Labor Day, 2006.
I just cannot bring myself to
throw in the sponge. Am I retired?
Sort of. Am I free to do whatever

I choose? Not really. Am I living
in Shangri La? Not exactly.
You see, I do have some
work to do for Island Times. Offi-
cially, I bear the title of Publisher
which translates into stringer -- -
the person who strings together
words to produce readable news-
paper stories. This time around,
my duties are few and my plea-
sures are many. Maybe, I'm living
in Shangri La after all.

What is Pensacola Beach
without its beloved fish sign
which guides everyone over the

And, a good time was had
by all. Numbered among the 500
guests at the Harry Gowens
Memorial Barbecue were many
of Harry's old friends as well as
new Beach folks who came to
support the Pensacola Beach
Elementary School which Harry
founded. The event was at
Flounder's on August 18.
"The whole evening was a
huge success," Marta Ray who
chaired the Memorial commit-
tee, said. "There were old faces
and new faces. Everyone had a
great time."
Activities ranged all the
way from a children's raffle to a
silent auction. The biggest win-
ner of the evening was the
Beach School which will receive
a check for at least $14,000, all
generated by the three hour
event. Checks were still coming
in last week.
"Beach businesses and resi-
dents were unbelievably gener-
ous in their support," Marta said.
Sponsors attributed the
success of the event to the

community's desire to honor
Harry's memory, and at the same
time, support the school. A com-

plete list of those who contrib-
uted will appear in the next issue

By the time you are reading
this, I will be in Georgia visiting
my relatives. We have a new baby
boy in our family who was born
in July. I know, every time you
turn around we have a new baby
in Georgia. We are trying to popu-
late the state with our family one
little baby at a time. And, of
course, we get to show off our
granddaughter, Sissy, who took
her first steps right in front of
Nanny and Pappy! I also lost
three pounds while keeping Sissy
for a week, so we are thinking of
hiring her out as an exercise/
weight-loss technique.
My grandson, Jesiah is en-
joying his new school and has al-
ready made abest friend. Speak-
ing of the Beach School, I think
the attendance was overwhelm-
ing for the Harry Gowens Memo-
rial. I can tell this is going to be
an annual event and a big source
of income for our little school. I
know that Mr. Harry heard every
voice that sang for him and that
he is very proud of all of you who
sang, donated prizes, sold raffle
tickets and worked hard to make
this a reality. The beach will never
be the same without him.
While at my friend Paulette's
house I lost my earrings. We
looked diligently for them until I
realized they were in my purse. I
lost one of the earrings yet again

that her Island Times has not ar-

just submitted my column so the

to read her newspaper that she
has a hard time waiting two

of you out there that feel the same
Okay, let's get to the real
source of my column, which is
supposed to be cooking. This is
an excellent recipe to serve for
any holiday (especially a hot
one). There is NO cooking in-
volved and you can add and de-
lete ingredients to suit your own
taste buds. You can use light
mayo and sour cream, if desired.
You can also make ahead of time
and add fruit (grapes) or nuts.
Okay, let's NOT cook....

Creamy Vegetable

1 Cup mayonnaise
1/ Cup sour cream
2 Tbsp. White vinegar
2 tbsp. Sugar
1 small shredded cabbage
1 Cup fresh broccoli florets,
1 Cup fresh cauliflower florets,
1/ Cup shredded carrots
% cup diced onion
1 chopped tomato

Add the first four ingredi-
ents together, blending well. Add
remaining ingredients, add salt
and pepper to taste and chill (slaw
and yourself) before serving.
Enjoy. Have a safe and
happy holiday. I'll see you in the
kitchen ....

If you are a fan of Kahlua, you are hardly
alone. In fact, this coffee-flavored liqueur is
the leading brand of liqueur in this country
and the second most popular brand of li-
queur in the world. This product of Mexico
owes its rich flavor to coffee, of course,
cane spirits, and a hint of vanilla along with
sugar, corn sweeteners, and secret ingre-
dients. It lends itself to such enormously
popular mixed drinks as the Black/White
Russian, Kahlua Mudslide, and Sombrero.
In fact, the invention of the Sombrero cock-
tail in the 1950s helped establish the popu-
larity of the liqueur and began the trend of
pairing Kahlua with cold milk. It is also
prized as a secret ingredient in chocolate

HINT: Naturally, Kahlua and coffee make
a great after-dinner drink.

Do you enjoy Black/White Russians,
Kahlua Mudslide or Sombreros? If you do,
you better stock up on Kahlua!At BEACH
WINES & LIQUORS, INC., we carry all
your favorite liquors. We also have the
expertise to tell you how to use them in
your favorite mixed drinks.

One of the best kept secrets
on Pensacola Beach is the appear-
ance of the Bookmobile which
operates from the West Florida
Regional Library headquarters at
the Pensacola Public Library. The
Bookmobile travels across both
bridges and onto the beach and
can be located in the parking lot
at the Pensacola Beach Commu-
nity Church at Via DeLuna and
Avenida 18. It had its debut on
July 11 and comes every two
weeks from 10:00 a.m. until noon.
You can find fiction and nonfic-
tion, paperbacks and hardback,
for adults and children. There are
approximately 5000 books avail-
able through the Bookmobile. If
you can't find the book in the
Bookmobile, a request can be
made and on the following visit
the book will be available. It of-
fers not only books, but audio
visual materials as well. This is a
real convenience for residents of
the Beach, for you will not need
to travel to libraries for your read-
ing pleasures or research.
While driving my four-year
old great grandson to pre-school
one morning, he said, "I like to go
to school- I like to learn." We all
know that learning is a lifelong
adventure and we never grow too
old to read. As the anonymous
author wrote, "I've traveled the
world twice over, met the famous;
saints and sinners, poets and art-
ists, kings and queens, old stars
and hopeful beginners. I've been
where no-one's been before,
learned secrets from writers and
cooks All with one library ticket
to the wonderful world of books."
And I've appreciated those
words of Francis Bacon: "Read
not to contradict and confute; nor
to believe and take for granted;
nor to find talk and discourse; but
to weigh and consider. Some
books are to be tasted, others to
be swallowed, and some few to
be chewed and digested: that is,
some books are to be read only in
parts, others to be read, but not
curiously, and some few to be
read wholly, and with diligence

and attention."
As another person sug-
gested, "If you can read this,
thank a teacher." Perhaps we
could paraphrase that to say "If
we need a good book, just thank
the Bookmobile for making it so

Global Warming....
Okay, people have been
bugging me about this subject for
awhile, so I will try to satisfy ev-
eryone. I hope!
Global warming is a hot sub-
ject for debate between scientists
and politicians worldwide. If you
ask a Democrat about global
warming you get one answer, and
a Republican, yet another.
Let's start at the beginning.
Is the planet heating up? Well,
yes it is to a small degree. This
planet we live on is over 4.5 bil-
lion years old. It's had five major
extinctions since its birth (before
we got here) and tons of climate
Earth has a violent past of
birth and re-design, from natural
events like volcanoes, asteroids
and comets for millions of years.
Add that to the current pollution
and changes in landscapes, and
well, you have a planet that has
evolved quite a bit.
But, I'm no Chicken Little and
I don't think that global warming
is the end of the world for us hu-
The Earth has always had
hurricanes and major storms in its
past. In fact the last few 1000 years
have been quite boring, a slow-
ing down of weather patterns and
catastrophic events, and now it
seems that climate is changing,
but in a natural way.
Look, last year after the
shock of the hurricane season,
everyone predicted that this year
would be the year of the super

SALE $899


hurricane. Cat Fives all year, death
and destruction! Well, that's not
the case.
Our planet will change its
weather patterns with or without
our help. It's the way things
work, you can't measure the plan-
ets evolution in human years, we
don't live that long.
The earth is a very complex
place with a huge past of change,
just one volcano can wreak havoc
on the entire planet's weather for
years, with or without the effects
of global warming.
Yes, we need to stop pol-
luting our planet. Of course.
But blaming the people who
disagree with the theory of glo-
bal warming doesn't make
sense. It should not be a politi-
cal debate but a discussion for
all people of the Earth by scien-
Every generation has its
doomsday, some people carry
around the Book of Revelations,
screaming about the end of the
world. Well, that doesn't explain
anything, and does not help
anyone. Instead of trusting
politicians on this subject, read
and explore the facts of the way
our planet works from science.
This is not about Democrats or
Republicans, or the Green Party,
it's about facts.
So, don't just believe the
hype. Investigate the truth and
when you hear people com-
plaining about the heat, tell
them it's summer!

Local Boy Scout Troops Attend High Adventure Canoe Trip in Canada

By MariaWeisnicht

Gulf Breeze Boy Scout
Troops 417 and 484 each sent a
crew of scouts and adult lead-
ers to the Northern Tier High
Adventure Camp run by the
National Boy Scouts Council.
This nine day wilderness canoe
trip starts in Minnesota and ex-
plores canoe territory in the
Northern U.S. and in Canada.
Troop 417's crew included
leaders Lucky Wallace and Rick
Edwards and three scouts -
George Weisnicht, Austin
Wallace and Blake Edwards.
Troop 484 covered 110 miles on
theirjourney with their crew of
five scouts David Sever, An-
thony Hofius, Matt Fockler, Jeff
Yee, Ryan Rennie, and two adult
leaders Dr. Michael Rennie
and Nick Fockler.
This trip was the highlight
of the summer according to

scout George Weisnicht.
"Northern Tier is not for the
weak or lighthearted. It was one
of the hardest weeks of my
short life, but it was an awe-
some trip."
The crews started from
Base Camp in Ely, Minnesota
where they were assigned a
guide and equipment. Troop
417 traveled almost ninety miles
through the Quetico Provincial
Park in Ontario Canada. They
would canoe across a lake and
then between lakes they had to
carry their canoes and their
food and equipment packs. The
hike between lakes is called a
portage and can be as long as
/2 mile which is pretty far when
carrying a heavy load over
rocky, mosquito infested trails
wearing wet jungle boots!
A typical day was to canoe
from early morning until noon,
take a lunch break and then ca-

noe again until 2:00 pm where
they would setup camp. There
were fun things to do in after-
noons cliff jumping, rock
climbing, fishing and some-
times a trail sauna. The scen-
ery, fishing and observing the
wildlife were the highlights for
Troop 484 and the wild blueber-
ries were an extra treat.
Both troops are planning
presentations about the boys'
summer adventures at their re-
spective scout meetings. Troop
484 meets on 6:30pm Monday
nights at the Gulf Breeze United
Methodist Church and Troop
417 meets at 6:30pm on Tues-
day nights at St. Ann's Church
in Gulf Breeze. The Boy Scout
program is open to boys in
middle and high school and
both troops are taking new

Here are the seven best kept
secrets of women who never
have a bad hair day (well, maybe
on occasion).
Start with a great cut. The
most obvious clue is that it falls
right into place and is simple to
style. If your hairdresser spent 45
minutes fussing to finish it,
chances are that you will have
even more trouble doing it your-
self. You need to discuss hair
type, texture density, curl, facial
shape and how much time you are
willing to spend fixing it. Talk to
your stylist about these elements,
then ask her (or him) to explain
the "why of the suggestions.
Chances are, you'll be happier
with your cut. Communication is
very important.
Don't fight nature too
much. You can fool Mother Na-
ture, but if you perm super-fine
hair into a tight curl and bleach
black hair to an Artic blonde,
you'll become a slave to upkeep.
Chemicals take atoll on the health
of your hair. Three perms and two
colors later your hair can end up
looking like three day old spa-
ghetti! A shorter cut and a few
layers can control hair as much
as a perm can. A rich, warm brown
probably looks better on a dark
brunette than Artic blonde does.
(we won't mention any names
Don't overuse products.
Gels, mousse, de-frizz serum, hair
spray, if you overuse any of or all
of these, you'll get dull looking
locks that have a gummy feeling.
I could write a book on this alone.
Just remember this. You can al-
ways add more, but you don't
want to have to start over at the
Think roots first. When
you're blow-drying, lift hair and
blow the root area first. Also con-
centrate the most volumizing
product at this area, bringing a
small amount through the ends.
This gives you height and vol-
Be prepared. If your hair
starts out great and poops out on
you mid-day, use a small amount
of water to mist or scrunch in to
re-a activate your mousse or gel.
And last but not least,
please get regular trims! Split ends
are not a great factor in styling.
Even if your are trying to grow

your hair out, it will not retain its
shape and look really blah while
it is growing. Then you will likely
end up cutting it off anyway, if it
gets out of shape. If your hair has
none of the shape of the original
cut, that's when you find your-
self resorting to ponytails, hats
and paperbags. Get a trim!

Some of my fondest memo-
ries of growing up on Pensacola
Beach are of the long Labor Day
weekend and the Gulf Breeze
Jaycee's Annual Bathtub Races.
I remember the first year I com-
peted in the races. It was 1979 and
my sister, Shelley, and I paddled
our way into the finals of the me-
dia challenge heat representing
the local Beach newspaper at the
time. One might say there was a
little pressure on us to come in
first place considering our mother
owned the newspaper and we
were Beach girls. We definitely
had the crowd behind us and the
determination to win. What we
didn't have was a good push. We
were sunk and capsized before
either one of us had the chance
to take one stroke. At the time
there was no greater shame or
embarrassment than bathtub race
defeat. Shelley ventured off to the
University of Colorado before
next year's race and I would not
paddle a tub again until she re-
turned in 1983.
Neither one of us can remem-
ber what year it was we actually
won the media division of the
much loved Bathtub Races. Too
many victory margaritas will do
that to the memory. I do remem-
ber that they were held at
Quietwater Beach and we had an
excellent push off from the
newspaper's artist, Michael
Kerry. Had we had a rope, you
could have water skied behind us.
That taste of Bathtub Race vic-
tory would be one of many and
our motto soonbecame "Danger-
ous When Wet."
As editor and advertising
managing of the Beach newspa-
per, Shelley and I formed a dy-
namic duo wherever we went. We

teamed up with former surf col-
umnist Mark Anderson and art-
ist Michael Kerry to win "Our
Lady's Media Water Olympics."
This event was held at the band
shell at Quietwater Beach Board-
walk to raise building funds for
the Catholic Mission which now
stands at the corner of Avenida
18 and Via de Luna. We even
hooked up with former entertain-
ment columnist Chris Zokan to
become the trio of terror as we
took first place in the corporate
division of the Pensacola Beach
As with everything, time
marches on and change becomes
inevitable. Much like the old
beach newspaper has a new name
and editor, so do the Bathtub
Races. It's now called "Anything
That Floats" and is sponsored by
Bamboo Willie's as part of Jamai-
can Fest brought to the beach by
Red Stripe Beer and the mer-

chants at Portofino Boardwalk.
And of course, there will be no
team of Shelley and Liz. In fact,
we hung up our paddles over 15
years ago when I moved to Cali-
But in the spirit of the Beach,
time can also stand still. Just like
the Gulf Breeze Jaycees did won-
derful work with the proceeds
from their annual Bathtub Races,
so will Bamboo Willies. One-hun-
dred percent of the entry fee for
each floatable contraption and
bathtub entered will go directly
to the Pensacola Beach Chamber
of Commerce. I encourage you to
grab a friend, a co-worker or even
a sister and enter "Anything That
Floats." You may sink. Then
again, you just might win. Either
way, you'll make a lifetime
memory and have a lot of fun do-
ing it.
Until next time...
Luv, Lizzard

Satin Bras and Old Newspapers Make News

I went back to work in the
walk-in-closet. Today, I ripped out
the sub-floor. Now who in their
right mind would use particle
board for a sub-floor? I ask this
question because not only was it
used in the walk-in-closet, but
also in the adjoining bathroom.
And guess what particle board
does when it gets wet? It expands
and expands and then disinte-
Well, why would I expect
sound construction practices
from people who used satin bras
and newspapers for insulation in
corners and crevices. Yes, you
read that right. I unwadded some
of the paper, was unable to find a
date, but did see an ad for a flap-
per dress.

Let' get back to ripping up
the floor. Once again I used my
trusty tools, hammer and crow-
bar, and of course, my battery
operated Makita saw. It took me
one hour to get the first board out
in pieces. Then it only took an
hour to get the other three boards
out. I had a much better vantage
point, and a better technique in
ripping the floor out.
Underneath the support
strips was the original porch floor,
circa 1908. There would have
been nothing I would have liked
better than to use it, but there's
one problem. It wasn't level. This
was by design though. Think
about it. Outside porch, rain, you
get the idea. Of course, nothing
in this house is level with the ex-
