In the sophisticated world of teenager and college, I would not, in my wildest dreams, have ever thought I would consider a mudpie a precious offering. But, that was before my daughters were born. For what does a little girl who is virtually penniless and out of work give her mother for Mothers Day? Well, let me tell you, beginning with the mudpie. Ive had some dillies. At one point, I felt like Graumans Chinese Threatre. I had more little gold handprints in paper pie plates than you can believe. My kids loved sticking their palms in wet plaster of Paris, and after the tiny hand was imprinted forever, they got to spray the thing with gilt paint, glue it on a paper plate, put a ribbon on the back, and the teacher penned a little poem about growing. They went through this procedure in the name of loving their mother, for years! And after the plaster of Paris stage, they entered the crayon and paper era. On Mothers Day, I would receive huge misshapen hearts with laboriously penciled sentiments My mother has brown hair. She looks like a grizzly bear. bears and a round white piece of paper that looked like a ghost with measles. Mommie, its a chocolate chip cookie. I made it for you for Mothers Day. The only other paper gifts I can truly remember were the jewelry creations. Necklaces and bracelets made from colored bits of drinking straws threaded on heavy cord. I wore lots of drinking straw necklaces as I danced around the kitchen. Tin followed paper. A note pinned to a shirt usually arrived a week before Mothers Day Please send an empty tin can with the label off. Be sure it is clean and free from dangerous sharp edges. So, I cleaned up a can, tucked it into a little bag, and away it went to school. A week later it came back to me, wrapped in red construction paper. The once clean can was now decorated with practically everything from Mardi Gras beads to old goose feathers. But, Mom, its to put your pencils in on your desk. Well, that purpose beats And then, as the big sister grew reliable enough to take the little ones to the quick grocery, they bought my gifts. They saved their money from treats (that always made me feel like running into the bedroom to cry!) and they bought me lollipops, stick candy, and grape bubble gum. Big Sister usually wrapped this treasure in a paper napkin and tied it with some yarn, and they worked on a greeting card. Grandly, they presented this sweet gift to me and I blew a few purple bubbles just to show them how pleased I was with their selection. And I can see those little girls still sitting on the carpet, their eyes glowing with love and sparkling with excitement, anticipating my dramatic reaction to this gift, the fruit of weeks of saving nickels and dimes. The years go by and the Mothers Day gift changes. A bottle of perfume which I felt I could not afford for myselfan ing (which I knew I could not afford)preppie shirtsa calculatororchidsan antique by some pretty nice kids. They still sit on the carpet in front of me as I open their beautiful gifts on Mothers Dayoh yes, the presents have changed, but the wrapping have remained the same for years. For still, as way Mothers Day gifts are wrapped LOVE The Santa Rosa Island Authority will present a special Mothers Day concert, Symphony by the Sea, at 7 p.m. Sunday, May 13, at the Casino Beach Gulfside Pavilion on Pensacola Beach.

PAGE 5 Island Times May 11, 2012 Engineers Await Green Light For Development Design Near Avenida 13 The Santa Rosa Island Authority Board Vice Chairman Vernon Prather wants to be involved in each step of a potential development in the residential area of Pensacola Beach, so the approval of a task order to BaskervilleDonovan, Inc., will be delayed for two weeks. Prather during the May 9 meeting, made a request that the task order, which allows cost estimate for creating a parking area between Avenida 13 and 14, be brought to a May 23 special board meeting. Dr. Thomas Campanella, elected board member, advised Baskerville-Donovan Engineer Mike Langston that the quality of the design is important. This needs to be attractive to appease the people down there, he said. Better than throwing down some Bahama rock. Langston assured the Board that if he is assigned to design a concept it will conform to all rules of development for parking lots. The rules require landscaping. Task orders are typically approved by staff, but the motion to bring the task order to the May 23 board meeting passed unanimously. Escambia County Engineers Joy Blackmon and Matt Mooneyham along with Assistant County Administrator Larry Newsom appeared before the SRIA board to discuss the toll facility upgrades and the pedicab operations. Mooneyham assured the Board that the transition of the Bob Sikes Toll Facility would be seamless and the upgrades the facility. The daily oversight, and sponders will be purchased at the SRIA, just like always said Mooneyham. The next year or two nothing will change on the outside. Newsom told the Board his goal was to get the facility to state of the art with real time cameras accessible by staff and the general public online, a new transponder and payment system, all for the same one dollar toll. The upgrades would be paid for by $1.4 million in the reserves. Escambia County will ofOctober 1. It could be many months before the young entrepreneurs who want to offer pedicab service in the core area will be allowed to operate. Since the County owns the roadways, the SRIA asked for their input. Larry Newsom created a cautious plan to follow: agreement to contain how many companies may operate, territories and who will monitor their operations. tions be prepared, approved and advertised. signed at the County or SRIA. Board member Tammy Bohannons motion to approve this plan passed unanimously. E.W. Bullock Associates, Romjue Advertising and Lucid Graphics made dynamic presentations in response to an RFP to provide advertising services to the Santa Rosa Island Authority. Bullock and Romjue, but could not reach a consensus to hire one 23 agenda. Seventeen percent of the guests who signed in at the Visitors Center during April discovered Penascola Beach through advertising, according to Maureen LaMar, the Centers manager. Numbers of visitors to the Center increased 13 percent over the previous year. Walk-in guests num609 phone calls and responded to 157 visitor guide mail requests. The iconic Beach Ball water tower which has been undergoing a facelift will be complete before the Memorial Day Weekend crowds arrive according to SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee in his report. Lee updated his board about the acreage to the east of Portofino currently deeded to the University of West Florida by the State. County Attorney Alison Rogers indicated that this land deed held by the State was for UWF students and staff to be used exclusively for educational and recreational purposes. A state agency does not fall under land development review, said Lee. The University has plans to advertise for proposals from developers interested in the land. Lee further explained that if the land is sold to a non state agency, then it would be subject to Escambia Countys land development review. Vice Chairman Vernon the review of the structure of the Santa Rosa Island Authority during the Board Members Forum. of the SRIA over the last three decades. He offered a proposed organizational change which would create an assistant director to serve under the executive director and move Human Resources under the Finance Department rather than marketing. Prather added the Leaseholders at the top of the organizational chart. The leaseholders are why we are here, he said. They are who we serve. Prather pointed out that 63 percent of the budget is spent for Public Safety and Public Works. Many of the services provided by these departments arent even used by the leaseholders, said Prather. Yet, they pay for them. This discussion will continue and a Town Hall meeting will be scheduled for leaseholders to give input on the structure of the SRIA. The next SRIA meeting is Wednesday, May 23 at 5 p.m. at #1 Via de Luna. It is open to the public.

The Look-Out Lounge in Mexico what exactly happened to their usually quiet, peaceful local watering hole. Were blaming it all on Cinco de Mayo and the Super Moon of 2012! One might think those poor souls had never witnessed a celebration before. Well actually, something unusual has been witnessed. Some of the SOBs who were dancing around in the sands on Mexico Beach came across a new and startling type of sea turtle. Apparently this rare species is gently migrating between Mexico Beach and our own sugar white sand. They are hard to spot (mercy these turtles are quick) and quite possibly an endangered species. It is easily recognizable by the very distinct marking on the shell. Although these turtles are known as the Mercedes Turtle, the mark is very similar to the old hippie peace symbol that was such a rage in the 1960s and 70s. Imagine coming across one of these majestic turtles underneath a full and super moon while wearing a Sombrero and drinking Mexican Martinis! I cant wait until DJ Zemenick and Melanie Waite (our own special turtle patrollers) rare and beautiful creatures. Keep your eyes open. I like country music with ice cold beer on a hot summer afterWeve come a long way baby from dancing in the sand in crowds of thousands to the live performances of Grace Slick and Jefferson Starship. That was back in the day when our summer wardrobe consisted of free t-shirts advertising spring break festivities. I loved Bruce Hornsby and waited so long to see him perform that by the time he took the stage, I could only hear him. I was glued to my beach chair but the sea breeze straight to my ears and heart. Once the concert ended, Christine Bunkie Hewerdine time getting her husband Lonnie off the beach. He wasnt feeling so good and he kept sitting back down on the cooler despite repeated efforts to get up and walk. We were loaded down with chairs and other beach paraphernalia and I swear I am not making this up we were the last three people on the beach and the sun was setting fast. We still had to walk along the beach from Casino Beach back to the Tiki parking lot where we had left the car. Finally in desperation I told Lonnie he had to get up because I needed a beer from the cooler. As soon as he stood up, Christine and I each grabbed a handle of the cooler and started walking quickly before he could sit back down. We just yelled back for him to follow us. Somehow he did. I have always loved concerts on the beach and never understood why they stopped having them for such a long time. When I saw Willie Nelson standing on a stage live on Pensacola Beach, I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. He is my alltime favorite music artist although I have loved many different music genres over the course of my life. In fact, I wish I still had those old albums that were destroyed in Hurricane Opal. dren, the music played in our house was predominantly based on which older sibling was in her teens. And somehow, my Mother survived it all. I still miss her every day. How lucky are we to be mothers in paradise? We are celebrated and serenaded with a Symphony by the Sea. ipe shared by D.J. Zemenick. D.J. brought this fabulous dessert to the last Krewe of Nereids meeting and everyone wanted the recipe.

Maybe it would be good to return to its original focus that of promoting kindness in the world. There is a story about late Bear Bryant famed coach of the University of Alabama. The story is that every year after about a month of practices, he would go into the locker room to talk to the players with one question; Have you boys called your Mamas? After a long silence he would only say I wish I could. Kindness is the cornerstone of the relationship between a mother and a child. Maybe that is why the Apostle Paul writes be kind to one another. It seems almost without saying that being kind to our mothers is a natural thing to do. The wellbeing of a child, regardless of the age, seems to be the what ways nice when a son or daughter shows up with a proud mother at a church service, and without exception with a great deal of pride introduce them to me. It is a form of kindness and love to be there for those who have expressed so much love. An early commemoration of Mothers Day grew out of the pain and heartbreak of the Civil War. Mothers on both sides of sonssons that they had carried for nine months, given birth to in pain, raised with great care and love, only to have them slaughJulia Ward Howe, writer of The Battle Hymn of the Republic, became so distressed by the bloody battles of the Civil War that she called on mothers to band together to protest the senselessness of their sons killing each other. Her Mothers Day Proclamation of 1870 called for an international Mothers Day promoting peace, kindness and motherhood: Arise, then, women of this day! Arise all women who have hearts Let them then solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in peace In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask that a general congress of women without limit of nationality may be appointed To promote the alliance of the different nationalities, The amicable settlement of international questions, The great and general interests of peace. After decades of campaigning by many devoted mothers, Mothers Day was officially signed into national observance in 1914 by Woodrow Wilson, who declared the second Sunday in May as Mothers Day. Mothers are honored in many countries around the globe. Mothers are mothers the world over, regardless of location, culture, or religion. Mothers are nurturers and peacemakers by This Mothers Day, honor your mother by showing great kindness. That is the best gift you can give. The Beachkeepers have a few bright ideas about turtle friendly lighting practices. They shared the results of their most recent effort with the Pensacola Beach Advocates Board members at their April 30 meeting. D.J. Zemenick submitted a written report to the Board which contained the results of a lighting survey conducted by Santa Rosa Island Authority Director of Developmental Services Paolo Ghio along with Sea Grant Extension Agent Rick OConnor, Gulf Islands Seashore Biologist Mark Nicholas and Zemenick. We toured the island, said Zemenick. And here are the preliminary results. We have some problem areas, but we do have some great examples of turtle friendly lighting, too. The report found hotels east of Casino Beach that have lighting not in compliance with turtle friendly standards. There are a number of restaurants and businesses which will be contacted with requests to change the bright white lights to amber colored bulbs during turtle nesting season. Hotelier Marilyn Hess received high marks from the group. Her hotels, Margaritaville and Holiday Inn Express, both on the Gulf, have turtle friendly lighting. The San Souci condominiums and the Beach Club received good reports. The new streets lights on Ft. Pickens Road were on the commendable list. Offending businesses and residential locations will be contacted, said Zemenick. There is grant money available to assist lighting changes in select areas. The owners of the proposed Observation Wheel on Pensacola Beach have made lighting concessions to protect wildlife. The Beachkeepers were instrumental in communicating the need for this with the new Beach business. Beachkeeper Lois Hausman gave the final Recyclemania tally. The event, which had to be rescheduled to April 27, because of weather was a total success. The plans to host another Recyclemania, perhaps in October, are being considered. We had happy sellers and happy buyers, said Hausman. We had some clouds but the rain did not move in until we had packed up for the day. JJ Waters, chairman of the group, noted that Beachkeepers continues to support good stewardship of the fragile island ecosystems. In upcoming meetings the group will discuss a possible lighting ordinance and education of locals and visitors about wildlife, recycling, dune preservation and eco-friendly transportation options. In other business the board discussed: about core area improvements. The survey will be released in the near future for citizens to share their ideas about redevelopment. ship Committee. The PBA membership numbers have steadily increased. Renewals, communication and database management will be streamlined by using a new software package.

PAGE 8 Island Times The Lizzards Tongueby elizabeth hewsonMay 11, 2012 Jane Waters always used to say, "You can take the girl out of New Orleans, but you can't take the Orleanian out of the girl." I wasn't always one-hundred percent sure about what that meant, but somehow I found comfort in knowing that my Big Easy roots were with me, no matter where I lived. Of course, it was quite easy to stay connected with the culture of New Orleans on Pensacola Beach as many of the locals were transplanted Cajuns themselves. And as the Colonel and I, traveled back and forth cross country, I brought a little of the Vieux Carr with me. There was the Mardi Gras themed bathroom in Oceanside, California, complete with a window curtain made from beads. A Zulu coconut doubled as a hand towel holder; and a portrait of Ricky Jackson, New Orleans Saints #52, stood sentry over the While living in the heart of Raven and Redskins territory, my family room was a tribute to the Crescent City from the white glittered wreath adorned with purple, green and gold birds to the towards the Superdome. Let's face it, I gave out Mardi Gras beads at Halloween. Even now, as I prepare to move to the Beach, my friends aren't asking for my forwarding address, but for my recipe for that New Orleans sandwich that I make better known as a muffaletta. Unfortunately, the time has come to end my ties with New Orleans as the traditions I once loved so dearly are killing me both figuratively and literally. The amateur athlete in me cannot handle another story about the Saints and their bounty program. Jane instilled upon me the love of competition and to be proud -win, lose or draw. Of course, there is always much more fame and glory in being the best, but not if you have to cheat and lie to do it. My heart aches every morning when I read The Washington Post sports section, and there is another story with more accusations and just as many denials to what seems to be a never ending sports scandal. I've lost my Who Dat feeling. I also just found out that I will never eat my favorite N'ahlins dessert ever again. There was nothing I enjoyed more than having a group of friends over for a huge Cajun feast followed up with homemade pralines. I suffered through the slow cooking of the roux for gumbo to the driving all over town (many different grocery that would special order ultimate knowledge that it would be my pralines that would leave my dinner guests validating my Creole cooking skills. There is no substitute or box mix for pralines; and the only true way to make them is to imagine yourself on the French Quarter to the praline shop right off the corner of Jackson Square. Turns out I am highly allergic to pecans. I can't have them in my food, in my house, or in my life ever again. They might as well be packaged with a giant skull and crossbones with the word "Poison" scrawled across. It's possible that the Orleanian in me will never truly go away 100%, but for the most part is certainly has begun to fade. As I discussed my new identity crisis with the Colonel, he looked at me and said, "Sweetheart, obviously you misunderstood Jane. What she always told me was 'Harry, you can take the girl off of Pensacola Beach, but you will never ever take the Island out of the girl and don't even try.'"

Jake Merritt, 7, left, from Berryhill, attended the Junior Rangers Day at Gulf Islands National Seashore at Ft. Pickens April 28. Ranger Steamer Lawhead was one of the leaders during the four hour event. Fifth grade Beach School student Hannah May, left, and Beach School grad Macy Mateer competed in the Optimist Club Oratorical Contest. Mateer finished first, and May earned third place. A question came from Beach resident Charlene Meyer and her friends who live in New Hampshire, but are Pensacola Beach leaseholders. They both own RVs. They asked if RVs are allowed to park in the public parking areas. Bob West, SRIA Safety Director, says the Escambia County ordinances prohibit overnight parking in the public lots. However, if the visitors or residents are day visitors in the public parking lots, the answer depends on size and space availability. According to West, if you can fit in one parking place you are welcome to park anywhere a car can legally park. For the larger RVs, when they enter the Bob Sikes Toll Facility, they should be given a flyer advising them of the rules. It also gives information on overnighting at Ft. Pickens. Until the new RV Park is opened, Ft. Pickens with its 180 camping spaces, is the only place that overnight camping is allowed on the island. The Beach deputies work closely with the Public Safety Department to accommodate the oversized vehicles. The Deputies work extremely well with us and, somewhat surprisingly, we actually have very few major issues with oversized vehicles, said West. Drop Me A Line...

But once you explain your position, they'll understand and even applaud you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A relationship seems to be stuck in the same place. Now it's up to you, dear Bovine, to decide how far you want it to go and how intense you want it to be. Choose well and choose soon. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship progresses more slowly than you would prefer. Best advice: Insist on a frank and open discussion. What is learned could change minds and, maybe, hearts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's all right to be grateful to a workplace colleague who has done you a good turn. But gratitude shouldn't be a life-long obligation. The time to break this cycle is now. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It's going to be especially nice to be the King of the Zodiac at this time. A recent money squeeze eases. Plans start to work out, and new friends enter Your Majesty's domain. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Before you make a commitment on any level (personal, professional, legal), get all the facts. There might be hidden problems that could cause trouble later on. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Personal relationships improve. Professional prospects also brighten. A job offer could come through by month's end. An old friend seeks to make contact. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your senses detect that something is not quite right about a matter involving a workplace colleague. Best advice: Follow your keen instincts and don't get involved. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A prospect offers rewards, but it also demands that you assume a great deal of responsibility. Knowing you, you're up to the challenge, so go for it, and good luck. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A favor you did a long time ago is repaid, as a trusted colleague steps in to help you with a suddenly expanded workload. A family member has important news. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new job offer could require moving across the country. But before you let your doubts determine your decision, learn more about the potentials involved. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your sense of fair play doesn't allow you to rush to judgment about a friend who might have betrayed you. Good! Because all the facts are not yet in. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a romantic nature that allows you to find the best in people. You would excel at poetry and drama.Gulf Coasts Leader In Personality DJ Entertainment, Sound Stage & Lightingwww.boogieinc.com

There are some people in our lives who are unsung heroes. There are some women in our lives who are not biological mothers, but are mothers in the highest regard. This is a story about Amy R. Juengling who was a hero to the womens movechildren throughout her lifetime. Juengling was born in a time when women had few rights by todays standards including no right to vote. Juengling wanted to be a medical doctor, but due to circumstances beyond her control, this didnt happen. Instead she became a champion of womens and childrens rights. Amy Junegling lived in Eden, New York and joined the suffragette movement marching with other women into Washington, D.C. Some of the women were arrested, thrown into jail, beaten and tortured. She was one of those women. When Junegling was released, she was given a pin representing her commitment to womens rights. The pin resides to this day with her niece, Dorothy Smith in Eden, New York. It is important to note that on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was passed stating the following: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of sex. We have those women to thank, many of them mothers, for risking their lives to secure our right to vote. Now with this major accomplishment behind her Amy R. Juengling ran for a seat in the House of Representatives in the 42nd Congressional District of New York in 1924. Her party ist. She earned 2,778 votes losing to James M. Mead (Democrat) who had 28,152 votes. This did little to dampen her spirits. She next put her energies and intellect into helping children gain a proper education using the Montessori technique. In order to continue helping children, she decided to purchase her parents home which was next to her house. With this added space she opened up the Daffodil Home which was a day care center with a twist. Children could stay day and night and were well cared for in this environment. One night a father dropped off his kids because his wife had become chronically ill. The girl and boy never returned home. When they left the Daffodil House, they went on to college. The boy later became a doctor. That was the kind of had on children. I thought I would end this story with a quote from Amy Juenglings campaign: Let us have full recognition and participation of women with men in our government and co-operate to solve the problems of the home, of children, of food, and the affairs of government. Happy Mothers Day! Amy R.

Island Times MAY 11, 2012 PAGE 18 Turtle TRAX By DJ Zemenick A female loggerhead swims along the shoreline, patiently waiting for darkness to settle around the dunes, signaling it is safe for her to come ashore. Many years ago she emerged from a nest on this very beach. She had been a tiny hatchling then, barely weighing an ounce. Now, a young adult and ready to 200 pounds, but still far shy of the 350-400 pounds she may be someday. It takes twenty years for a loggerhead to reach sexual maturity, so perhaps she hatched in the summer of 1992; the very same summer Gulf Islands National Seashore initiated their new sea turtle program. The small group of Park employees and volunteers were eager to participate and be turtle nest that year. They were also excited at the possibility of observing what was known as a boil, something that many had only read about: the moment when a hundred or so hatchlings come spilling out of their nest in a burst of energy, escaping the dark, cramped area which conThat summer and each summer since, patrollers have surveyed the beach for large tracks which lead them to new nests and checked for signs of predation around those being monitored. Nests that are well placed on the shore and positioned high above the tide line are generally safe, except during storms; therefore they do not have to be relocated. Those likely to wash out may be moved to higher ground, but under time constraints. An embryo, which attaches to the inner membrane of its egg within hours of being laid, can be destroyed by rotation or any jostling. Relocation is a very delicate process. Approximately sixty days after discovering a nest, patrollers the hatchlings are poised just below the surface, resting and waiting for the sand to cool as the night temperature drops. It is signal they instinctively recpush above ground. Nest-sitters, meanwhile, have smoothed out ruts and swept aside clumps of seaweed between the nest and the Gulf. The deep, angled tunnels created by ghost crabs have been filled in with sand. Crafty crustaceans which once found hatchlings easy prey, now find themselves hindered from making a meal of the tiny turtles. Everything possible is done to keep the endangered hatchlings safe as they run a dangerous gauntlet from their nest to the sea, their true home. Years later, a female hatchsurvives to adulthood will return to her natal beach to lay nests of of motion she displays in the sea will fall away when she comes ashore. Gravity weighs heavy on her body as she slowly pulls herself onto the beach. Once she out a body pit, and then uses her chamber. She lays her leathery eggs and covers them deeply in the sand to disguise, protect, and keep them warm, for once she to the nest again. For the next 60 days, except for the watchful eye of patrollers and sitters, the nest is left on its own. At the end of that time, the tiny creatures break free of their shells, only to buried alive, struggling upward, propelled by a primal urge to reach the sea. Twenty years of sea turtle of conservation; how much difference have we made? Will we see an uptick in nests again this year? Have our actions helped increase the number of those who survive to adulthood? We may soon have some answers, but regardless, we will still be waiting to help those that return. For up to two weeks after breaking through the shell, a hatchling subsists on a small amount of yolk sac which it has internalized from its egg. It is what nourishes them during their dig to the surface and the days that follow in a swim frenzy as their instincts make them frantic to reach deeper water where they are less vulnerable to predators.
