story on Page 2 about
Beach resident
Lieutenant Colonel
Mark Thompson, USMC.

Pensacola Beach, Florida November 2, 20101

Marine Corps Officer Salutes All Beach Military

The few. The proud. The Ma-
rines. Lt. Colonel Mark Thompson,
USMC, of Pensacola Beach is rep-
resenting all retired and active duty
military now living on the island.
Thompson, talks about his first time
on the Beach in 1993 and 1994.
"I was a single Marine Lieuten-
ant living on Bulevar Menor. I'm
back now as a married Lieutenant
Colonel with four kids living on
Panferio Drive."
Lt. Col. Thompson has had a
storied career in the Marine Corps
during these last 16 years. He has

served his country worldwide. In
2003, he participated in combat
operations during Operation Iraqi
Freedom, and again in 2005, he
deployed aboard the USS Yarawa
for combat operations in support of
Iraqi Freedom.
Early he reported to Camp
Pendleton, California and became a

Super Cobra pilot. He was assigned
to the Gunfighters Squadron where
he completed two unit deployments.
He has won numerous decora-
tions along the way in his travels
toward one of the Marine Corps'
most prestigious assignments.
In 2006, he became the Military
Aide to then, President George W.
Bush. He was the custodian of the
President's emergency satchel, pro-
viding the President with immediate
access to the nation's most sensitive
and critical resources. He directed
the execution of Emergency Opera-
tion plans across
the spectrum of
threats and coor-
dinated actions
with the Secret
.. Service, Presi-
dent's Executive
office, and other
agencies. He also
served as the
President's Cer-
1, wemonial Aide.
So, how is
the Lieutenant
Colonel fitting
into the Beach's
mpson laid back life-
style? He is fol-
lowing the dictates of his heart and
the Marine Corps as he has settled
easily into this waterfront com-

School. Joshua, 9, is in fourth grade
and seven-year-old Lauren is a

Elementary School.
Their dad is not just standing
by, letting someone else carry the
jobs parents must fill.
"Of all the things I do, I love
best raising my children," he said.

School Board. He is Call 'TCSi

He not only is
in high standing in
this community, he is held in high
regard by his fellow Marines. Here
are some words of praise from Col
Harry Hewson, Program Manager
of USMC Light and Attack Heli-
copter Programs at Naval Air Sys-
tems Command, who has served
with Thompson in many areas.
"I've known Lt. Col. Mark
Thompson for almost 15 years --
since he was a Captain and we were
squadron mates in Marine Light
Attack Helicopter Squadron 369,
the Gunfighters, at Camp Pendle-
ton. Mark (his call sign is "Ziggy"
due to his love of reggae music and

Ziggy Marley) always distinguished
himself as one of the smartest and
most tactically proficient Cobra
pilots in the squadron. But more
than that, what really stands out
about Ziggy is his role as a tough,
but fair mentor for the younger
Marine officers. He was always the
guy who spent extra time explaining
the finer points of attack helicop-
ter tactics and systems, or how to

navigate the rocky waters of Marine
Corps career paths and opportuni-
ties. That's why I was particularly
excited when he was selected to
command HT-28, where he will get
the chance to shape young Marine
and Navy helicopter pilots at their
most impressionable time. Those
young professionals are the future
of our nation and they couldn't
have a better role model than Ziggy
Thompson to lead them and teach
them how to thrive in the very high
stakes and high performance world
of Naval Aviation."

illustrious Marine Corps career and
all the work he does for his commu-
nity on the side, Lt. Col. Thompson
said he wanted to send a message to
all the military on the beach.
"As the current Executive
Officer and future Commanding
Officer of one of the helicopter
training squadrons (I assume com-
mand of HT-28 on 4 March 2011),
I think I have a unique perspective
on the state of our
(Ofdll' Naval Service. The
I hais warriors who shaped
1iS our today can rest easy
rI t1and knowing that the torch
�e, has been passed to a
_S O_ _ group of young men
CSM'MG..M and women ready to
assume the challenges
of an uncertain future.
Each raised his or her hand when
called upon to serve knowing full
well that soon, very soon, each will
fly into harm's way in Afghanistan,
off the Horn of Africa, or wherever
our nation calls."
But life is not all work and no
play, Thompsonjetted off to Wash-
ington, D.C. last week to compete
in the Marine Corps Marathon.
They may be proud and they
may be few, but they are all heart
when it comes to embracing their
fellow military - the men and
women who keep all of the rest
of us living in the land of the free.

Bits & Pieces

If you were unable to attend
the important Fee Simple Title
meeting of the PBA on October
19, or if you have not yet joined
PBA, it would be a smart move
for every leaseholder to be a part
of this valuable organization. The
PBA officers are people who have
varying degrees of education and
experience in business and gov-
ernment. They are carrying the
banner for all of us on the taxation
matter and the Fee Simple title.
Get in touch with them today. Get
on the freedom and fairness band
wagon. Email info@pbadvocates.
Another beach group which
should draw your attention is
COLORS. The name stands for
Celebration of Life on the Re-
public of Sandspurs. They are
the remaining few, still standing
from the original Beach family,
and the new people they have

gathered along the way. They meet
on the fifteenth of the month in
a designated place to reminisce
about yesteryear, try to explain
todayyear and predict a really cool
futureyear. Every prognosticator
is welcome. The Island Times
publishes the dates and places
and Kathi Lewis, IT columnist, is
a pillar of this organization. You
can usually find her driving her
vintage Caddy somewhere in the
vicinity of Paradise Grill or near a
casino in Biloxi. Note: COLORS
gatherings cease during the Mardi
Gras season.
Another organization which
reminisces is R.O.M.E.O. Retired
Old Men Eating Out, a spinoff of
the Beach Community Church.
You can meet them for lunch
once each month. Bring your own
stories to add to their repertoire.

businesses were affected by De-

that the bridge count for the Sat-

Fest. 27,152 to 26, 427.
Saltwater Rick Uzdevenes is
the guy in our office who knows
all there is to know about fishing

major passion - music. He plays

He also teams up with the Island

in Nebraska, and am therefore
automatically classified as a die-

football. So is Warren Buffet, the
world's third richest man who
lives in a modest home he bought



forty years ago in Omaha. On
game day in Lincoln, however,
he goes to Memorial Stadium and
sits in the midst of the thousands
of red-shirted fans. The Husk-
ers, at their last game celebrated
their 308th sellout crowd. That's
forty-eight years worth. Does the
Big Red have any challengers in
attendance stats? Incidentally,
Buffet is dedicating 99 percent of
his net worth, which just happens
to be 47 billion dollars to charity.
Is it too early to bow and

at Hemingway's. According to
Shelly, they kept the place hop-
ping until 9 p.m. and then partied
on at the beach house. The newly
wed couple is taking a seven day
Caribbean cruise, with a brief stop
in Orlando to see little sister Erika,
before returning home to Dayton.

Gulf Breeze sent a boat load
of skippers to the Pensacola Beach

include Janice Wilson, Jeffery

other new member this month was
Pensacolian Lanny Brown.

The Trivia Master found out one
thing about his team of players last
week. They didn't just fall off the
turnip truck. Or, on second thought
maybe they did. How else could
so many of them know the correct
answer to this question, "Halloween
started many years ago in the Celtic
countries, Ireland and Wales. Do you
know what vegetable they used to
carve their Jack-o-Lanterns?"
Lady Kim Schmitz of the
Roundtable, was the first to answer,
"They placed candles in hallowed
out turnips to scare away evil spirits.
Right?" Right on.
Sir Morrie Drees was not far
behind with this correct answer. "An
Irishman named Jack put a lump of
coal in a carved out turnip to keep
the devil away. Irishmen also made
them out of potatoes but turnips were
first." Great reply, Sir.
And the winner was a newcomer
to Trivia, Robert Dority who simply

emailed, "Hallowed out turnips."
Robert is this week's champion
and gets the t-shirt.
Now, the line up begins. "The
Irish carved turnips. They were easy
to carry around at night. Tell me I
am the first," wrote Beverly McCay.
Sorry Bev. Close, but no cigar.
Diana Harvey sent two answers.
First, she said, "potatoes." And then
corrected it to "turnips."
"One of these days that shirt will
be mine," said Diana.
"I know I am at least second,"
wrote Dr. Fran Albert with his cor-
rect answer. Close to first but not
soon enough.
Kelly Eddins thought the an-
swer was squash, and Chuck Steele
said potatoes were used long after
the discovery of the Americas. He
did, however, give the correct answer
and noted that turnip accounted for
BZR and Herbie T's surname from
"turnips carvers." The Trivia Master

assimilated all this information at
face value.
Marianne and Sean Heritage
allowed their son Barrett some
computer time, so the Beach School
second grader, sent his answer. He
said the original Jack-O-Lanterns
were made from squash.
And Braveheart. She will be
known temporarily as the Queen
of Halloween, the much maligned
Queen of Wrong Answers, Joanne
Brooks, got it right. A Turnip Martini
for you, Queen.
"Cooler weather and Thanks-
giving will soon be here. What one
word describes both an outer gar-
ment worn to protect us from the cold
and also the manner in which some
of us eat holiday dinners?"
Email your answer, name and
phone number to islaidtuiimc bc Il-
south.net with "trivia" in the subject
line before Tuesday, November 9.
The first correct answer wins!

PBA Approves Fee Simple Position Statement

Two hundred interested people
attended the October 19 meeting of
the Pensacola Beach Advocates.
They were all seeking informa-
tion on Fee Simple Title for beach
residents. The Advocates had taken
upon themselves the task of trying
to cover all the complexities of this
ever swirling issue.
Members voted to approve the
Position Statement with one amend-
ment, following a lengthy discus-
sion, questions and answers and
what-ifs by the audience. Mainly,
Commissioner Grover Robinson,
IV, and Alison Rogers, County At-
torney fielded the questions.
Jim Cox, PBA president, who
conducted the meeting made it clear
that interest in Fee Simply Title
would not adversely affect their tax
case in the courts.
"We are not throwing in the
towel," he said. "Taxation is unjust
and we recognize that. We are in
favor of continuing all litigation."
Rogers presented the history
of the island from its governmental
appointment until now. She said her
office is not involved in the tax suit
nor is the County Commission.
"I cannot tell you what will
happen. However, in Santa Rosa
County, the Property Appraiser
Greg Brown is assessing improve-
ments and the land. Our appraiser
may pursue that option. He has
indicated to me that he would like
to see that happen."
Commissioner Robinson
voiced his stands on issues includ-
ing the payment of taxes and lease
"The Fee Simple issue is talk-
ing about nothing different than
what we already have," Robinson
said. "The payment of taxes instead
of lease fees is the only difference."
Robinson said he was strong
about keeping the public property
on the beach "public."
He also supported the windfall

issue where the County would not
have the opportunity to receive
a benefit from the change to Fee
During the question and answer
period leaseholders voiced their
anger at being taxed.
Leaseholder Steve Speirs asked
about the 8 leaseholds that are not
being taxed because they won their
"I don't think you go to Con-
gress until you straighten out this
legal situation," he said.
County officials stressed the
fact that it would not be necessary
to take Fee Simple Title. When
this event happened in Okaloosa
County, only 60 percent of the lease-
holders took Fee Simple.
Dr. Tom Campanella asked for
the advantages of Fee Simple.
"There is no rebuilding require-
ment and mortgage companies pre-
fer Fee Simple," Jim Cox replied.
"It is imperative that people
understand so they can make a good
decision," said Campanella.
When asked about retaining
the Santa Rosa Island Authority,
Robinson said, "I support that there
be some sort of entity, but it is way
too premature to say what that entity
would be."
The language in the position
statement was changed to reflect
the group's desire to have the SRIA
or another entity govern the island.
The statement, which follows,
passed a member's only vote.
Issues to be addressed in the
draft legislation:
All public areas of Pen-
sacola Beach will be permanently

easements or other legal means.
Fee simple title will be
transferred for a nominal fee to
cover transaction costs. There
should be no windfall to the County
from the transfer of fee simple title
to the lessees.

Issues to be addressed in a
separate Escambia County Board
of County Commission resolution
at the time of approval of the draft
* No leaseholder shall be
required to accept fee simple title.
* Wherever possible, title
will be offered directly to sub-
* Lease fees will be elimi-
nated for all leaseholders, including
those who do not accept fee simple
* The Santa Rosa Island
Authority or similar entity will be
maintained to provide the current
level of service in the areas of public
safety, maintenance and recreational
* There is no intention to

amend the Pensacola Beach's por-
tion of the Escambia County Master
Plan, rezone residential lots for
commercial or condominium de-
velopment, or alter the residential
building cap.

Cox opened the PBA annual
business meeting at the conclusion

I am always amazed by our
little newspaper. Sometimes it even
informs me of stuff I didn't know I
was doing! "What?" you might ask.
Well, I found out in the last issue,
that I was the leader of a putt-putt
team called the "Pajama Putters."
When Christine (Bunky) Hew-
erdine called to tell me she would
not be able to attend this year's
American Legion Putt-Putt Golf
Tournament, she was concerned
that she might be dropped from
the Pajama Putter's membership.
Since it only consists of Jesiah, me
and Christine (so far anyway), I felt
sure she would be allowed back
next year. I don't really know who
named us or when, but we like it and
we're keeping it! We'll also keep
playing each year because it's a lot
of fun, although a more civilized
and later start time would suit me
much better. Oh yeah, I remember
now; it was way too early for clothes
- that's how we became the Pajama
I know y'all think I just play
all the time and never work, but
sometimes I'm really working

when it looks like I'm playing.
Got that? I didn't think so. But
really, after I putt-putted my way
out of the tournament and into the
Sandshaker I ran into a recipe. Well,
actually I overheard someone talk-
ing about something that sounded
really, really good so I asked him
if he minded giving me the recipe.
Since our helpful bartender, Alice
was capable of writing (something
I was not capable of at that precise
moment) she kinda sorta wrote it
down for me. We'll find out later if
it's right or not.
In the meantime, I still had to
get ready for the Krewe of Wrecks
meeting and Halloween Party at
Sabine Sandbar. It was so hot I had
to 'ride' the lightweight convertible
witch's broom! It would sure be
nice to have a cool Halloween.
But hey, Queen Shugah has
saved us from all storms this season,
so I'm not complaining. Heck, I
knew Tropical Storm Richard would
never harm us; his namesake is a
very gentle and kind man and he's
married to Queen Shugah.
I've been thinking too much

lately. But don't worry, that's
bound to end soon. I am getting my
'ducks in a row' though, because it
has come to my attention that the
lack of accessibility to our beauti-
ful beaches for the handicapped is
appalling. I intend to do something
about that. Everyone should be able
to enjoy a day in Paradise without
restriction and this can happen with
a few changes.
While attending a recent con-
cert with my husband Bill, we were
enclosed in a triangular handicapped
area surrounded by barricades
with only one way in and one way
out. Thankfully, it was dark since
there was no shade. There were 60
people crowded into 100 square
feet of space. Once the space was
full, there was barely room to walk
through the wheelchairs, walkers
and personal scooters (for those of
us that could walk anyway).
To top it off, once the head
liner took the stage, the people in
the VIP space rushed to the bar-
ricade and were standing, blocking
the entire view from anyone sitting
in a wheelchair or unable to stand.
This is completely unacceptable,
my friends, so I have added another
"iron in the fire" (more likely to
become a branding iron)! I guess I
just don't have enough to do.
With Veteran's Day, the Holi-
days and Mardi Gras coming, this
recipe is sure to be a big hit. It
comes from John Jackson even
though he wasn't speaking directly
to me (at first); I just can't pass up a
really good recipe. And, man, did it
sound good, so let's cook.....

with B6arnaise Sauce
4-6 lb. pork/beef tenderloin
1-2 lb. lump crab meat

Cut tenderloin almost com-
pletely in half and stuff with lump
crab meat. Wrap tightly in alumi-
num foil and bake at 200 degrees
for 6-7 hours or until internal tem-
perature reaches 160 degrees. Let
sit while cooking barnaise sauce.

Bdarnaise Sauce
3 Ig. egg yolks
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. dry white wine
1 tbsp. finely chopped onion
1 12 tsp. chopped fresh tarragon
1 1 tsp. chopped fresh chervil
�1 cup firm stick butter (do not use
margarine or vegetable oil spread)

Stir egg yolks, lemon juice
and white wine vigorously in 1 1/2
qt. saucepan. Add 1/4 cup butter.
Heat over very low heat, stirring
constantly with wire whisk until
butter is melted.
Add remaining butter. Contin-
ue stirring vigorously until butter is
melted and sauce thickens (be sure
butter melts slowly so eggs have
time to cook and thicken sauce with-
out curdling). After sauce thickens,

barnaise sauce.
Enjoy, share and have a safe
and Happy Veteran's Day!

Students Set High Goals
To Help Community
Pensacola Beach Junior Op-
timist Club members were thirty
strong at the October 27 meeting.
They had good deeds on their
agenda as their prepared to launch
into a Fall food drive.
The Club, which is comprised
third, fourth and fifth graders, will
collect food items through Decem-
ber 5, to be donated to the Manna
Food Bank.
"We need to have a bunch of
ways for people to donate. Let's set
up boxes in the classrooms and in
the office," suggested Hannah May.
Club members will encourage
the entire student body to bring non-
perishable food items to school and
events. Anyone in the community
wishing to make a donations may
bring them to the Pensacola Beach
Elementary School office, Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
"If the school exceeds last
year's donation, students will get
extra time for recess as a reward,"
said Margie Pitts, fifth grade teacher.
Treasurer Meredith McCurdy
reported that the Candy Corn Esti-
mation contest netted $118 to add
to $216 already in the Club's funds.
Both Victoria Williams and
Katelyn Stahl hit the number of
candies, 1035, right on the nose.
They will share the first prize.
McCurdy also announced that
a check for $100 has been sent to
the Emerald Coastkeepers to assist
in beach clean-up after the oil spill.
Members worked on additional
fundraising ideas for the holiday
season and set their next meeting
for Wednesday, December 1 at
2:30 p.m.

Ac- . r- --

This week I am starting a whole
new phase of my life. It's called
Boot Camp! No, I'm not joining the
military, too old for that, I signed up
for an exercise/nutrition program. I
had to give up my beloved chocolate
dipped in lavender confection sugar,
but only for a month. What started
it all was watching my friends from
work, both male and female, show-
ing up both trimmer and more buff.
I thought to myself, that's for me!
The curriculum is not for light-
weights (a pun intended). Every
detail is tracked including wearing

a pedometer with the goal of walk-
ing 12,000 - 15,000 steps daily -
roughly 4 to 5 miles. In addition to
the pedometer, I purchased a pair of
cross training shoes which are quite
similar to my hiking boots. The
shoes are much lighter and more
attractive than my hiking boots.
There is a log-in procedure to
identify every morsel of food you
ingest down to a single M&M. The
web site actually breaks down the
following information on the food
you eat: calories, fat, cholesterol, so-
dium, carbohydrates, fiber, protein

The Beach Church
The Pensacola Beach Com-
munity UCC is a unique and ac-
cepting church. It may be well to
give our readers a little history
of our denomination. The United
Church of Christ was formed in
1957 when four different denomi-
nations decided to join together
and form "The Untied Church of
Christ." Those four denominations
were German Evangelical, German
Reformed, Christian church, and
the Congregational Church. This
union was a demonstration of ac-
ceptance and care. We have since
our beginning welcomed people of
any and all denominations.
Our goal as the "Beach
Church" is to be a presence and
blessing for those we are in contact

with. You will find that we believe
deeply in God, Jesus Christ and the
Holy Spirit.
We love being a part of this
community and will be positive
light throughout the year. We share
with others the love of God and
work closely with other people
of faith.
As a new member of this com-
munity I feel it is a great honor
to share the gifts I have the best
way I can. Please come and join
us for our service every Sunday at
10 a.m.. I promise you will enjoy
the worship and wonderful people.
You may come as a stranger, but
you will leave as friend. My door
is open for anyone who would like
to stop by or feel free to call at

[The Reverend Dr Tom Garrison joined the Pensacola Beach Com-
munity Church family as their pastor last month. He and his wife, Renata,
reside on Pensacola Beach.]

neat. Go to www.livingstrong.com.
When you start to analyze the
food you eat, it puts a whole new
perspective on eating. It is amazing
to see how much good food you can
eat versus junk food regarding full-
ness and feeling good. The bottom
line is the junk food basically makes
you hungrier for more junk food.
There was a pledge I had to sign

Sticks and Stones May Break Their Bones

But Words Will Never Hurt Them- Maybe

O n- Shs

Fireworks which exploded at
the October 27 committee meet-
ings of the Santa Rosa Island Au-
thority rivaled the Fourth of July
display on Pensacola Beach as
one controversial issue followed
another on the packed agenda. The
SRIA Committees and the audi-
ence heard speeches far in excess
of the three minute restriction rule,
gutter language, accusations, and
allegations. Now, the Authority
must sort this all out.
LaFitte Cove Homeowners
Association brought back their
request that the SRIA take over
the maintenance and dredging of
the LaFitte Cove to the Develop-
ment and Leasing Committee. The
Committee heard once again the
advantages of the SRIA maintain-
ing the Cove.
If the Island Authority takes
LaFitte Cove over, it could use the
resulting sand spoils for Soundside
Beach renourishment and since
it would become a government
waterway, it would be eligible for
FEMA help after disasters.
Board member Dave Pavlock
said, "We have just received this
packet and will not be able to make
a decision tonight."
Vernon Prather, member,
moved to continue this item for-
ward for additional work and
research. The motion to move the
item to the next committee meet-
ing passed unanimously.
The use of ATVs to haul
equipment to the Beach is a safety
issue which rankles Bob West,
SRIA Safety Director. He said the
staff still recommends a denial of
the use of the motorized vehicles,
but he has drafted a Beach Motor-
ized Vehicle Policy and Agree-
ment for the Board's review.
Keith Wilkins, Escambia
County deputy chief of neighbor-
hoods and community services,
told the SRIA that the county
staff is not supportive of the use
of ATVs on the Beach.
"The matter is detrimental to
the environment and the aesthet-
ics," he said. "I have not taken
this to the Board of County Com-

missioners, but I do know that
Commissioner Robinson is not
supportive of ATVs on the Beach.
Dr. Tom Campanella, Board
member, moved to accept staff's
recommendation to deny the re-
quest and the matter will then go to
the Full Board. His motion passed
The next issue involves the
vacant Clarion waterfront prop-
erty. The hotel was destroyed by
Hurricane Ivan and is still await-
ing a buyer. The Committee heard
a lengthy presentation from Joe
Endry and Lucien Dancaescu con-
cerning the fractional share hotel
project. These two are principles
in the Gulf Winds Management
company, which at one time had
an agreement to build a fractional
hotel on the Clarion property.
The sales contract between
Gulf Winds and the Sun Ray Vil-
lage Homeowners Association
expired in January 2010. However,
Endry said, "While we do not have
this property under contract, we
are still working to get this project
built on that location."
Dancaescu said, "We have
an oral agreement with the Ho-
meowners Association. Both Joe
and I have a vested interested in
the property."
Mainly, Gulf Winds is try-
ing to retain the Development
Agreement which the County has
granted them to construct 216
lodging units, averaging 1289
square feet in a 19 story hotel with
5000 square feet of conference
meeting space.
In the hotel-condo policy, the
Beach has only a limited number
of large hotel rooms available,
and Gulf Winds allocation reduces
the total significantly. Endry sug-
gested that if they could not build
on the current property, they
would take it to the Days Inn, and
failing that, would build on some
other beach.
Vernon Prather moved to
recommend that the Development
Agreement be extended for one
year. It passed unanimously.
And once again, the owners

of the wedding rental houses on
Ariola Drive clashed with the
owners of the residential homes
nearby. The rental agents and the
rental house owners had hired an
attorney who picked everything
apart that the SRIA had done to
try to calm these muddied waters.
He told them they needed a noise
ordinance and that their rental
document was full of mistakes
and typos.
Vernon Prather made the
motion to leave the policy as is
and appoint a committee to seek
solutions while working in a
workshop-like setting. Campan-
ella requested that it be added to
the Full Board agenda. The motion
passed unanimously.
There was only one side to the
request made by Mark Cabassa,
Mark Taylor and Chris Phillips
to use the Boardwalk area and
the Amphitheater for a Revitalize
Fishing Rodeo either on May 21
or June 4. The sponsors expect to
fund the $300,000 project with
monies from BP. The request
passed with the note that they do
not conflict with May's DeLuna
Fest, which is proposed for May
13-15 but may not be held on
Pensacola Beach.
All Beach residents are
reminded that the speed limit
through the toll booth is 5 miles
per hour. Toll booth employees
are expressing concerns for their
safety when walking from one
booth to another, with cars zipping
in and out of the lanes. The Escam-
bia County Traffic Department has
proposed to install rumble strips
as you approach lanes 1, 2 and 3.
Lane 4 is on the western side and
is open to emergency traffic.
The "Annual Pass Only" lane
will move from its current location
in lane 2 to the first lane, the one
at the far left hand side.
The next meeting will be the
Full Board on Wednesday, No-
vember 3 at 5 p.m. at the SRIA
boardroom. The meeting is early
due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Wrecks Kick Off Four Month Mardi Gras Season

The Krewe of Wrecks royalty
steadied the deck while dozens of
witches crash landed at the first
Wrecks meeting, October 25 at
Sabine Sandbar. The Krewe began
their thirty-second year with a big
time Halloween costume contest
and a quick business meeting.
The brave soul who steers
the unwieldy Wrecks ship all year
long is Running Around Wreck
Jeff Goudey. He welcomed the
crowd of Mardi Gras stalwarts
and directed his board to open the
membership rolls.
"Sign up now. We will ac-
cept new members at Monday
night meetings until we reach our
maximum number of members,"
said Goudey. "The cost to join is
$30 for more fun than you have
ever had."
The costume contest fol-
lowed the meeting. The Witches
of Beachwick won the prize
for best Halloween theme. The
coven of spellbound beach gals
included Kathi Lewis, Paulette
Provost, Ella Hess, Nancy Kit-
tel, Lila Cox, Chrissy Cook, DJ
Zemenick, Courtney Winstead,
Deb Friedman, Amy DePew and
Judy L'Oignon. The Crew D'Oil,
Melanie Waite, Karl Zemenick
and Carleen Wheeler, took home
the prize for most creative. They
costumed as a clean up worker,
sand shark and an oil blob. Pink
Party Girl, Trish Tenuto earned
third place, followed by honorable
mention to Little Miss Tigress
Amy Maxwell. Other entries
included The Judge by Barry Mc-
Creary and Morrie Drees dressed
as the Great Pumpkin. Tasked with
deciding who was the best of the
best were judges Ted Lockwood,
Shelby Smith and Don Richards.
"Wrecks like to costume
whether it's Mardi Gras or Hal-
loween," commented Melanie
Waite, Wrecks Board secretary.
"They turned out in big numbers.
We have already signed up 58
members this evening."
Members of the Wrecks board
at the meeting were Goudey,
Waite, Phillip Simoneaux, Carleen
Wheeler and Dan McGrath, who is
the new Treas-Wreck.

"Get ready for a new, im-
proved krewe and dazzling royalty
this season," said Goudey. "Our
Krewe costume mistress Gail Rick
will launch a new Wrecks look for
our court in March. Til then, it's
a secret."
The Wrecks will meet next

at The Dock at 6 p.m. Monday,
November 8. The schedule is lo-
cated at the bottom of this page.
The meeting is open to current and
prospective members.

Crew D'Oil earned the Most Creative prize at the Krewe of
Wrecks meeting, October 25. The threesome of (L to R) Mela-
nie Waite, Karl Zemenick and Carleen Wheeler teamed up to
spoof the spill with their colorful costumes.

Q: "What is IBM's World
Community Grid?"
A: The WCG is a worldwide
project in which IBM uses your
excess computer capacity as a lab
for researchers around the world.
Since most of us barely scratch the
surface of our computer's capabili-
ties, we can participate in research
on a global scale by volunteering
our computers to WCG. Since the
WCG was first established in 2004,
IBM's research network has grown
to more than 1.5 million computers
in more than 200 countries.
As a volunteer, you allow IBM
to install a program on your com-
puter that will use your computer's

resources when you are not using
the computer. Each computer in
the network is assigned a specific
task, performing calculations and
problem analysis. Each task is a
small part of a huge effort to find
solutions to scientific problems
which include muscular dystrophy,
solar power, smallpox, cancer, crop
yields, molecule research, and a
variety of others.
IBM has a small staff that is
responsible for coordinating all
the projects and assigning tasks
to computers. Each computer
performs the assigned tasks and
uploads the results to the central
WCG computers. The software is

Title To Beach Properties

Still Under Discussion

The first step toward securing
the option of Fee Simple Title for
leaseholders on Pensacola and
Navarre Beach was thwarted at
the joint meeting of the ten com-
missioners from the two counties
on October 25.
The Santa Rosa and Escambia
County Commissioners were to
discuss a plan and approve the res-
olution to be sent to the Congress.
But, they didn't quite get it done,
because the Santa Rosa County
attorney requested a change in
the language which diminishes the
protection of public lands.
The request changed the
words indicating that all public
areas will be preserved through
conservation easements and other
means. The Santa Rosa request
was to use the word "adequate"
rather than
"all" to de-
scribe the ar-
eas that would "Two things

After this
resolution has and we music

sent to Con- Escambia (
gressman Jeff
Miller's of-
fice. County
attorneys for both counties agreed
that Congressman Miller wanted
the conservation and recreational
use of public land addressed in
the resolution.
Although some Escambia
County Commissioners offered
compromise solutions, most
agreed with Commissioner Gro-
ver Robinson, IV, who represents
Pensacola Beach.
T%\o things are very clear
to me," the Commissioner said.
"We must not create a windfall
for Escambia County and we must
preserve the pubic access, recre-
ation and public lands. There is a
difference between the two coun-
ties when it comes to the way they
wish to word the part on public
land conservation. I have spoken
to the residents on the Mainland

and on Pensacola Beach and they
are both adamant about preserva-
tion of public lands."
Leaseholders groups from
both counties were represented at
the meeting. Jim Cox, president
of the Pensacola Beach Advocates
said, "I am pleased to see that
both boards have addressed the
windfall and preservation issues.
These are concerns of all citizens
throughout the county."
Robert Colley, Navarre Beach
Leaseholders Association asked
the commissioners to protect the
public lands with strong language.
"I have read and agree with the
Pensacola Beach Advocates' posi-
tion statement," he said.
Since there was no vote on the
resolution, the two commissions
will now discuss the issues at their

For this Veterans Day, I would
like to recommend that you read
a book written by a close friend
and co-worker, LtCol Robert J.
Darling, USMC (Retired). Bob has
spent the last two years penning
"24 Hours Inside the President's
Bunker," a true story about what
went down in the President's
Emergency Operations Center
located underneath the White
House during the 9/11 attack. It's
completely from his perspective
as he was there as the morning
unfolded. What is refreshing about
this book is there is no ulterior mo-
tive, no political jockeying. It is
just a retired Marine who decided
to tell his side of the story. A side
that is hard to find or uncover in the
official 9/11 Commission Report.
Bob's story begins with him
readily admitting he didn't know
what he wanted to be when he grew
up. But thanks to some friends,
fate and supportive parents, he
found his way to the United States
Marine Corps. After being com-
missioned a Second Lieutenant,
Bob headed to Pensacola for
flight school and earned his Naval
Aviator Wings. He would become a
Cobra pilot and find himself using
not only his aviator expertise, but
leadership skills in such hot spots
as Kuwait during the first Gulf War
and Somalia in 1993. He would
also become a presidential heli-
copter pilot, a member of the elite
HMX-1 team. That was just the run
up for what would be expected of
him on September 11, 2001.
In October 2000, Bob tran-
sitioned from HMX-1 over to
the White House to be an Airlift

Operations Liaison Officer to the
President's staff. Basically, he was
the resident expert on presidential
helicopter operations and he was
part of the team that coordinated
all of the required elements to
safely transport the President, Vice
President and any other designated
VIPs. After almost 10 months into
the assignment, he writes of Sep-
tember 10, 2001: "As I watched
Marine One lift the President
from the South Lawn of the White
House, I crossed my fingers that
all went according to plan. The
President was scheduled to come
back to the capital the next day
immediately following his visit to
the Emma E. Booker Elementary
School in Sarasota. It would be a
quiet couple of days for me...or so
it seemed." No truer words have
probably ever been written.
His account of what happens
on September 11, 2001, is a by-
the-minute rundown from getting
up at 5:20 in the morning and
deciding what to wear -- he was
not allowed to wear his uniform
to work on a daily basis -- to re-
turning to his family at 9:45 a.m.
on Wednesday, September 12,
2001. His day started off with the
normalcy like so many others and
within 24 hours, his life and our
world, would never be the same.
Bob writes from the heart and his
111-page story keeps you turn-
ing the pages. He is kind enough
to include an acronym glossary
because neither the military nor
the federal government are short
on acronyms and the book also
includes a chapter from his wife
Angela's point of view.

I am honored to know Bob,
who was a Cobra pilot with my
husband for years, and now is a
colleague of mine as we both work
for a small, but growing govern-
ment contract support services
company. It was my pleasure to
read "24 Hours Inside The Presi-
dent's Bunker" which is available
in hardback, paperback and for
digital download as well from most
And, so to all the brave and
honorable men and women who
have served in our Armed Forces
and carry the title Veteran, I borrow
a line from Bob's book which was
said to him by then White House
Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Higgins:
"On behalf of the President, Chief
of Staff and myself, you did a great
job for us yesterday. Thanks again
for everything." Until next time...
