They ferried over to Playa del Carmen, and spent time in Isla Mujeres where they honeymooned in 2000. Friends Craig Barrow and Sam Magee traveled to Mexico to surprise the couple and toast the anniversary. GREEN WITH ENVYMelanie Waite shared some good news that she has been a volunteer turtle patroller for twenty years. All that time she until now. Congrats Mel. Almost one year ago Bob Hawley clipped Peas, Porridge, and a Dry Martini out of Island Times to save Kathi Lewis recipe for Dreamsicle Pie. He lost his treasured recipe so he contacted the newspaper office to get a copy. He even got some additional instructions from Kathi as a follow up. How cool is that?Janie Poole took a very special souvenir back to Thayer, Missouri. She visited the beach and when it was time to return home, her grandson Chad Harvey accompanied her.

LIGHTING CANDLESGena Raymon, The Sidewalk Social Director, may have tries to light birthday candles for the long list of June partiers. She had alerted a crowd to be at the Sandbar on June 9 for Greg Garcia, who does not like parties and Greg Gordon, who does. She has Kyle Kildow, Steve Dotson and Kris Pabian next in line for the birthday social scene. Santa Rosa Island Authority Board Member Tammy Bohannon marveled at her landmark birthday, June 6. Congrats. The Trivia Master dug into the geologic history of Santa Rosa Islands white sand and received a bucket full of correct answers. First to ring in was Gulf Breezes Ann Livingston, who knew that the source of the white sand was the Appalachian Mountains. Shell be breezing around in her new Island Times shirt. Retired educator Melanie Waite sent a mini-lesson as her answer: The white sands of Panhandle Florida come from the white quartz rocks of the Appalachian Mountains. As boulders and rocks tumble down the mountains and into rivers, they are banged and cracked, eventually broken, into smaller and smaller pieces as they are washed down the river systems to the Gulf. By the time they get here, they are ground down into tiny white sugar like particles that make up our white sands, and squeak when we walk on them. Send her to the head of the class! Pensacola Beach senior lifeguard Dave Greenwood has spent enough time on the sand to know its origin. He said, Its from the granite rocks of the Appalachian mountains. Over several ice ages, the white quartz was sifted and deposited to form this beautiful island. New to trivia Monica Worley had a correct answer, as did some of the Traveling Trivia Gang like Dan McGrath and Gwen Foster. Gwen has returned from New Jersey and Dans on his way back to Michigan. Tutt Esquerre pinpointed his answer to West Virginia. The Duchess of the Dunes Joanne Brooks traveled to the Realm of Wrong Answers via the Great Smokey Mountains. Oh well, Queenie. Big Bob Dority was a bit too broad in his response, which was Mother Earth. And, the esteemed Sandspur Publisher Chuck Steele was too narrow when he said Pea Ridge Sand and Gravel. Dr. Courtney Winstead submitted an interesting answer, remembering that the famous Coastal Geologist Dr. Jim Morgan said the sand is delivered here by Gulf currents from Grayton Beach. She deposited that answer hoping it would be a winner. Sorry, Doc. The Trivia Master fondly hosted annually in the fall for lobecame so popular by the fourth year that cruise director Bill Greene had to rent the Captain Anderson II to accommodate the 350 revelers. email the name of this event to islandtimes@bellsouth.net, you will be cruising the beach in a special Island Times t-shirt.

PAGE 5 Island Times June 12, 2012 Leaseholders presented ideas that ranged from repair of residential roads to the need for strategic planning at the June 4 Santa Rosa Island Authority Budget Workshop. The 2013 budget, which allocates $7.8 million generated by the islands commercial and residential leaseholders, is slated for further discussion on June 13 and June 27 at the SRIA meetings. Board member Vernon Prather commented that the number, but over $3 million generated from the businesses as a percentage of their gross revenue, is subject to weather and the economy. He favors a conservative approach, but would like to see some changes. I would like to see an increase in advertising and marketing, said Prather. We can work with our commercial customers to see how they would like to see this spent. Ron Ellington of Innisfree Hotels presented the Board with a letter from seven Beach business stakeholders supporting the SRIA and making recommendations. There are cross currents happening in the ad valorem the SRIA source of revenue, and create a need for a global look at the organization, its purpose, goals and objectives, said Ellington. We feel that the SRIA plays a vital role in maintaining and promoting the island, and we want to see it sustained no matter what the outcome of the lawsuits. The recommendations inmarketing strategy with measurable goals, an increased advertising budget to be coordinated with the Pensacola Chambers plan, and creating a full time marketing staff position. The document placed an emphasis on the Authoritys future, requesting that strategic planning, visioning and contingency plans be developed. Prather agreed that in light gic plan is critical to the future of the Authority and that staff could develop this. Ellington reiterated the support from the stakeholders, You have working partners tive revenues should lease fees go away. Chairman Dave Pavlock asked that the advertising budget be increased to $400,000, which returns it to the same level as 1997. The 2012 budgeted amount is $140,000. Board member Ed Guernsey agreed that the investment in advertising yields a good return and asked that the Beach Chambers stipend for advertising events locally be increased to $50,000. Board Member Fred Gant noted that tracking the effectiveness of the advertising is important, and that personnel issues should be addressed. He is in favor of a full time marketing person, but is insistent that the tor of Administration position. I would like this to be The salary is in the budget, said Gant. We need a Director of Administration. We are in our busiest season. We need all hands on deck. The Board turned their attention to a list of 34 unfunded projects and asked staff to primeeting. Gant asked for input from the Beach Chamber and public on the priorities. Chairman Dave Pavlock noted that beach renourishment needed to be funded and suggested a $100,000 budget increase. He also requested that a paving survey and plan be developed for the residential streets that the SRIA must maintain. The SRIA board encouraged public input at the workshop. agreed that the advertising budget increase was a good investment and an integral part of the Master Plan, but asked that the Board consider residential roadway repair, improved bike paths, and restoration of dune crossovers. June Guerra, longtime beach residential and commercial leaseholder asked the Board to renew its effort to provide a cover over the Boardwalk Amphitheatre. The item was part of the concept when the Amphitheatre was created, but never funded. It would provide protection from the elements for the entertainers as well as the guests, said Guerra. Staff will research the possible alternatives. Rick Gordon, Beach resident, applauded the trolley system, and requested that the Board provide more benches at stops, look for more beach friendly, lower emissions and smaller trolleys. He also asked that they review the Master Plan to seek projects like lighting and landscaping to revitalize the Beach. asked that the Board review the entire document which includes a description of each department, update the budget so that it better parallels the organizational chart, and create a strategic plan. The 2013 SRIA Budget will be discussed Wednesday, June 13 at the Full Board meeting, which begins at 5 p.m. at the SRIA boardroom. The meeting is open to the public.

It is a time to relax and get away from the busy life we lead. However, a vacation can provide those things or it can make us more anxious than we already happen to be. How many times does the time we have planned to enjoy and relax turn into anxiety? Did you pack the sunscreen? Or who was responsible for turning off all the lights before we left home? It seems like there is always something, even when you reach the beauty of the beach and listen to the waves and feel the wind. Maybe, just maybe, for those of us who live here or those visiting, it would be a great time to really relax, enjoy and breathe. Take the advice of Jesus himself when he says: Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink,or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by being anxious add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you. So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Todays trouble is enough for today. Enjoy Gods beautiful creation at Pensacola Beach!uzz.........................B Business the theatrical, but reserves it for the stage.

Expect the same incredible quality food delivered in less time. DOG FRIENDLY DECK! BREAKFAST SAT & SUN 8-11Hear ye, hear ye for all you prospective gardeners out there! The other day I was reading some statistics on the nutrient decline of the food we eat in this country. It was startling! The research was based on analyzing nutrient data over a 50 year period for 43 crops at the University of Texas Biochemical Institute. Here is what the researchers discovered: calcium declined 16 percent, riboflavin down 38 percent, iron decreased percent, and there was a 20 percent drop in vitamin C. In 2012 we would have to eat an excessive amount of any one fruit or vegetable just to receive the same nutrients and vitamins that we ingested in 1940 for that one piece of fruit or vegetable. What are the underlying reasons for this problem? Large agricultural conglomerates grow for yield and rapid growth in order to maximize profit. Crops are not grown for nutrient value. Research has shown that the larger the fruit, the more watery and less nutrient dense it is. If a plants roots do not grow very deep, then nutrient intake is limited. This happens as a result of steady water input and fertilizers at the soils surface. This also helps to create root disease in the process which further inhibits nutrient intake. Another reason for the lack of nutrients is picking fruit and vegetables before they are ripe. The plant doesnt have adequate time to pick up the nutrients before it is shipped great distances to a food store. What can we do? Well one thing we can do is visit our local farmers market or local organic food store. Taste and compare their products with those from a standard food store. We can also grow our own food in small gardens. I just purchased The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping: Home Landscaping with Food-Bearing Plant and Resource Saving Techniques, by Rosalind Creasy. I really liked the idea of eating from the produce grown in my front yard. My neighbors are farmers, and they let me pick fruits and vegetables fresh from their garden. Wow the flavors are unbelievable. So good luck on grabbing fresh produce, and in the immortal words of Julia Child, Bon appetit! Q: What is the Flame Virus? A: The Flame virus is a computer program that reportedly is very sophisticated. It is a new one and is causing a lot of concern around the world. The antivirus companies are scrambling to develop software to locate and defeat the virus program. News reports say that it is not yet in the United States, but because it is so stealthy, a person might not know if it is in their computer. It has been detected in Africa and the Middle East. If it was introduced by a foreign government, Iran could be its main target. Iran is reporting several intrusions in business and government computers. Another virus, named Stuxnet, targeted Irans nuclear production program in 2010. Compared to Stuxnet, this virus program is much more complex. It could take up to a year for the sophisticated code to be analyzed by security companies. Exactly how the Flame virus enters your computer undetected is not known. Once inside, it then begins to track what you do, looking for sensitive data. Its purpose is to collect information and transmit it to one of several computers located around the world. It is capable of logging and reporting your keystrokes, which allows the virus program to collect user identities and passwords that would be useful in identity theft. It also can record conversations as they are in progress, which means that it can make a copy of your Skype and Instant Messaging sessions. Users of computers that run the Windows software should make sure that an antivirus program is installed on their computers. As always, make sure that the computer is receiving regular updates from the antivirus company and that the antivirus program is scheduled to automatically scan the entire computer for viruses. As of now, the virus has been detected in only a few hundred computers. Users of Apple products do not seem to be affected by this virus. For questions, contact Joe at joe@ycpals.com or 206-3156.

Island Times June 12, 2012 PAGE 18 Turtle TRAX By DJ Zemenick Dolphin Cruises850-492-6337Located at the Beach Marina 655 Pensacola Beach Blvd. 850-723-6142 Pensacola Beach Marina Sailing/snorkeling trips from $55! Life seems to continually remind us what a small world we live in. I recently had an opportunity to travel to Europe and enjoy an amazing cruise up the Rhine River. Just a few days into the trip I was astonished to discover there were two other sea turtle patrollers onboard the S.S. Antoinette, a husband and wife team from Galveston, Texas. Ocean cruise ships are capable of carrying thousands of people, but river cruise ships are much smaller and typically have less than two hundred aboard, including crew. What were the chances of meeting two sea turtle patrollers on a ship carrying less than two hundred passengers when I from home! It was exciting to compare experiences with my new friends, patrollers Ellen and Harry Hufft, in the days that followed. I discovered that nesting sea turtles start arriving a few weeks earlier in Galveston than they do in the Panhandle of Florida, so their patrol season begins in April. A large percentage of Galvestons nesting sea turtles are Kemps ridleys, the most critically endangered of the marine turtle species, whereas most of ours are loggerhead. The protocol followed by Texas Parks and Wildlife is also different from Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. When a sea turtle nest is found on Galveston beaches, a biologist is contacted immediately and arrives to excavate the eggs. They are then quickly relocated to an incubation facility on Padre Island National Seashore outside Corpus Christi. This means the Galveston patrol group is left without nests to monitor or nestsit during hatching time. Consequently their sea turtle patrols end around the middle of July. It was sad to realize many of Galvestons volunteer patrollers have never had an opportunity to witness a boil, the natural en masse emergence of hatchlings from the nest. All the sea turtle eggs that hatch in the controlled environment at the Padre Island National Seashore incubation facility are released within the Park instead of being returned for release on Galveston beaches. Hopefully, Ellen and Harry will be able to visit Pensacola Beach this summer and have the good boil and watch the hatchlings as they march to the Gulf. turtle nest of 2012 was discovered May 20 by Rebecca Carruth, a bio-tech for the Park. The loggerhead nest was located in the Santa Rosa area of Gulf Islands National Seashore. Congratulations, Rebecca! Though our first nest this season was a couple of weeks behind last years, were starting to catch up. June and July are typically the busiest months for nesting sea turtles on Pensacola Beach and Gulf Islands National Seashore. There has been a bit of extra excitement because weve turtle nest (discovered by Melanie Waite in the Santa Rosa area May 23) and two other nests which are possibly Kemps ridleys. Patrolthis is the year well once again be rewarded with a leatherback nest. The only documented leatherback sea turtle nest in our area was twelve years ago at Ft. Pickens [U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 2002]. Unfortunately it was also the same year that a leatherback sea turtle was killed by a boat strike during Blue Angels Weekend on Pensacola Beach. Nevertheless, we remain hopeful that one of these ancient mariners will return again to nest on our beach someday. Now that sea turtles are coming ashore to nest, be sure to turn off or dim exterior lights on your home or condo and close your curtains to reduce light spillage onto the beach. Areas with bright lights typically have fewer nests. Remember, Sea Turtles Dig the Dark! If you have a question youd like to ask about sea turtles or how you can help make Pensacola Beach more sea-turtle friendly, you may send an e-mail to turtletrax@yahoo.com and our team of biologists, bio-techs, and volunteers will try to answer in an upcoming column.
