GArden St. The Islander Newspaper October 16, 1987 Newspapers stand alone as businesses which are forced to publicize their bloopers. If somebody doesn't like an editorial or news story or ad or whatever, he can write a letter to the editor, and the editor is honor bound to print the criticism, so the whole world will know there is a problem. In other businesses, mistakes are promptly and quietly handled and hopefully, hidden. If you order a rare steak and it arrived at your table looking like the sole of last summer's running shoe, you tell the waiter to return it to the kitchen. He swiftly and discreetly takes care of the matter, and the other patrons in the place munch happily away, unaware that a customer was miffed. If you buy time you wear it, there is a remote, hidden area in the store where you can return the garment. In most department stores, a credit is issued, apologies are made, store managers arrive, bowing and scraping. The customer goes away smiling, and no one knows that she came in originally to return an inferior product. Newspapers are different. Just let a misplaced letter in a word create an obscenity and see what happens. Or take a stand that is not too popular and see what happens. Or do something as innocent as misspell someone's name and see what happens. Names can be the pits. How do you spell "Debbie"? Debi. Debbi. Debby. Deb-B. That's how you spell Deby. The Islander, like any other newspaper, has championed unpopular causes and people. We grieve over our errors which we so meticulously try to avoid. Three people read proof on The Islander and yet, the minute the finished product rolls off the press we spot such typos as "Star Treck" and "broadsailing." Why would anyone want to publish a newspaper? Mostly, because journalists are strong believers in freedom especially freedom of the press. National Newspaper Week is always celebrated in October, and it is our time to talk about ourselves and how we survive our profession. We love being free. Free to dispense information, good or bad. Free to change opinions. Free to create new ideas. There's only one real freedom we do not have. We are never free to cover up our mistakes and we are never free from the haunting thought that we must publish letters calling us things like "stupid." And let me tell you this If I ever see my name in print anywhere as Jayne Waters, you can bet the editor will hear from me. Since 1996, competitors have splashed, pedaled and dashed around Pensacola Beach in the areas premier multi-sport event. This year will be no different. The Santa Rosa Island Triathlon will begin at 7 a.m. Saturday, October 6, when 1250 entrants will compete in a 600 yard open water swim in the Gulf, followed by a 12.5 mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile run. The race begins and ends at Casino Beach. Charles Gheen, who has been notes that there are 21 Elite level triathletes entered in the SRI Tri. Cash awards are offered for top sional class triathletes. Brian Fleischmann will be back again this year, said Gheen. He has won this event 10 or 11 times. I have lost track. He has achieved so many accolades in this sport. But, Gheen says a huge portion of the entries are new triathletes. I hope they get hooked on triathlon, said Gheen. Just like the sport hooked me, and I still love it. The new triathlete has opportunities to learn about the SRI Tri at the pre-race Expo, Friday, October 5 from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Resort, which runs concurrent with race packet pickup. New racers are encouraged to attend the Technical Course Meetings at 4 p.m. or 6 p.m. where all questions will be answered, according to Gheen. According to Gheen the sport has grown dramatically over the years, and the SRI Tri has been recognized as the National Triathlon of the Year, as well we the top destination and top small triathlon of the year. What used to be 400 events annually has grown to 4,000 triathlons, said Gheen. The popularity of this sport has skyrocketed. The SRI Tri impacts the economy by bringing national exposure. The event draws athletes and their families from across the visit to the Beach. The organizers also make donations to benefit local groups. Beach residents are encouraged to stay home and cheer for the athletes, but if you must drive on island avenues, please use caution. Watch out for cyclists and runners on the course. We should have all athletes three hours, said Gheen. The Best Post Race Party starts under the tent at 10 a.m. Awards in age groups, relays and special categories will be presented at the Post Race Party.

One of the things most Americans have a problem with is slowing down and letting our spirits rest. It seems good to me within ourselves. Here are a few thoughts. 1) Show gratitude towards people and live in a state of gratitude. 2) Focus on the things you have been given and not on the things you want. 3) Spend one hour of your time for some physical activities like swimming, or working out. Doing something for yourself physically is always productive. 4) Spend time doing something you really enjoy like reading, listening to music, other ways relax. 5) Start something creative so that you relieve stress and engage your mind. 6) Learn to forgive and forget and let go of things quickly. It is not good to resent and hold grudges. 7) Take some personal time to be alone and think about life and where you have been with it. 8) Do not rush on anything. Go one step at a time. Thats how I keep myself organized in my daily activities. each moment like you are going to die tomorrow. Not in a morbid way but in a healthy way to get the most out of life. 10) Pray. That may sound simple, but it isn't and it will make a world of difference. May God bless us in our journey of life together.Authority Extends Construction TimelineThere is more time to rebuild for the 250 leaseholders who have empty plots of sand. The Santa Rosa Island Authoritys Architectural and Environmental Committee extended the deadline to begin construction on beach parcels to May 4, 2016 at their September 26 meeting. The penalty for noncompliance was cut in half. The policy is in place to compel leaseholders to rebuild, but the economy, insurance woes and additional impediments have historically guided the SRIA boards in extending the deadlines. SRIA Chairman Dave Pavfortable with retaining the $2,000 fee. Considering the recession, and now taxation, I think it should be reduced. The motion included a reduction to $1,000, but the penalty and rebuilding requirement still exist. SRIA Committee Chairman Tammy Bohannon noted that this policy is an example of how a leaseholder differs from a land owner, a critical point in the taxation case. leaseholder does not control their when to rebuild or they suffer punitive damages. That would not be the case for people who owned their land. The time extension and reduced penalty fees received unanimous Committee approval, but will appear on the Full Boards regular agenda for further discussion. The Committee heard an update from Director of Environmental and Developmental Services Paolo Ghio about revegetaion of the primary dune line. The project, which is coordinated by the State and funded through the National Resource Damage Assessment, will begin at Park The crews will move west planting and installing sand fencing to the primary dune line. The project should be complete in 30 days. In other business, the Development and Leasing Committee discussed the progress of Core Area projects. Bohannon said that the County has begun the toll facility project, noting that they will ity on October 1. The County also has tasked Baskerville Donovan engineers to design an access road from Morgan Park to the Grand Marlin. Additionally, they will begin the landscaping of the Via de Luna medians in January. RESTORE Act projects, we need to think big, said Bohanchangers. Following Bohannons Core Area Report, the Administrative Committee voted to approve a letter from the Santa Rosa Island Authority Board to Commissioner Grover Robinson. The letter stated that the SRIA understood that Commissioner Robinson would be submitting proposed projects for RESTORE Act funding from his entire district which includes Pensacola Beach. Beach resident Jim Cox asked the SRIA Board to do two that the County give preference to RESTORE Act projects based on geography. Thus, Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key projects should be a priority. Secondly, he suggested that the SRIA task staff with preparing a proposal outlining the detail of each project, rather than just a one line description. Board member Fred Gant noted that while Commissioner Robinson represents the Beach as part of District Four, he wanted some assurances that the residents of Pensacola Beach had a voice. The Committee voted to request a geographic preference for RESTORE Act funding consideration be added to the Countrys criteria. SRIA Finance Director Dottie Ford presented the Administrative Committee an upbeat report. year compared to the previous year, said Ford. Lease fees collected during July totalled $2,021,042. Beach businessman JB Schluter provided an update on the statue memorializing his brother Yancy Spencer who passed away in February 2010. allowing us to place this statue for Yancy at Casino Beach, said the statue is in production. Schluter is having a site plan to include the statue placement and lighting. The plan will be brought before the SRIA board next month. The statue is to be dedicated February 16, 2013. The Full Board will meet at at #1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public.

The fund was established as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. During her presentation to County received 98 percent of all the oil product that impacted the State of Florida.

What you see can help with an upcoming decision. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) "Caution" continues to be your watchword this week, as a former colleague tries to reconnect old links. There are still some dark places that need to be illuminated. GEMINI (May 21 to June sion is important. Revealing your often hidden sense of humor can help you get through some of the more awkward situations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking that Cancer Crab image too seriously? Lighten up. Instead of complaining about your problems, start resolving them. A friend would be happy to help. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A widening distance between you and that special person needs to be handled with honesty and sensitivity. Don't let jealousy create an even greater gap between you two. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Congratulations. Your handling of a delicate family matter rates kudos. But no resting on your laurels just yet. You still have to resolve that on-the-job problem.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new relationship could create resentment among family and friends who feel left out of your life. Show them you care by making more time for them.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You're right to try to help colleagues resolve their heated differences. But keep your objectivity and avoid showing any favoritism 'twixt the two sides.

I experienced the meaning of true friends just the other day. Case in point The rain had plummeted the day and night before leaving the ground all soggy. I awoke, took a bath, got dressed, went to look outside and heard an ominous sound. conditioner. I changed the setting on the thermostat. The sound was still there. Bummer! It has to be water running somewhere. I ran to every bathroom and the kitchen no luck there. Finally, I ventured outside. I could no longer hear the noise. I called the water company and was told there would be a long wait. It was the meter reading day, but they would eventually come out to diagnose the problem. I called my husband Ralph, who was out of town, to ask for suggestions. plumber and call me back with a phone number. In the meantime, I called my neighbor and dear friend Marilyn to talk about my trip and my water noise. Within minutes, her husband, Allen appeared ready to tackle the problem. We retraced my steps, and Allen concurred with my results. Then he said it must be underneath my front porch. He removed a section of fence which prevents large animals from living underneath the porch. And then I remembered, he had come over a few months back to coax a nice snake from my front porch. And where did it slither to, underneath my front porch. I felt an obligation to go under the porch with him to stay on snake patrol. We were armed with a shovel, gloves and der blocks and then shovel dirt sideways. The height was 4 feet. There were two leaks in the pipe. Allen had stopped both leaks, cut out the damaged pipe with a tiny saw, replaced the damaged pipe with new pipe and elbow, brought in rocks to provide support for underneath the pipe, replaced the dirt and packed it and closed up the fence portion of the porch. Oh and by the way Marilyn made us both lunch. Ralph and I were amazed and so deeply touched that our neighbors would be so thoughtful undo our bad day. I still cannot get over Allens and Marilyns generosity. I learned a lot that day about being a true friend. Of course, Marilyn and Allen wrote the book so I learned from the best about friendship.

Expect the same incredible quality food delivered in less time. DOG FRIENDLY DECK! MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL $2 DRAFT We have been having a very good sea turtle season on Pensacola Beach and the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Our ending nest count for 2012 was 77 nests, only seven shy of the record set just last year when we had 84 nests. The nesting phase, which begins in May, kicks into high gear around June 1 and peaks in mid-July, quickly falls off in August. In fact, there were only area during the month of August, the last being laid by a loggerhead on August 16 in the Santa Rosa area of Gulf Islands National Seashore. This means we will have nests hatching until at least mid-October and probably even later since incubation times are extended when the weather cools and sand temperature drops. A second year with a high nest count is very exciting. Typically there is a two to three year interval between sea turtles nesting seasons. Sea turtles which nested on our beaches this year are not the same ones which nested here last year. Two seasons in a row in which our nest count nearly doubled seems more likely to be a true up-trend instead of a sea turtles. Hopefully this is the result of the monitoring program and our combined conservation efforts! This year, in addition to our usual loggerhead nests, we were happy to have five green sea turtle nests, as well as a couple of Kemps ridleys. The last leatherback nest we had in our area was at Ft. Pickens in 2000, and we were hoping this would be the year one would return, especially when we heard one was laid in Okaloosa County. Sadly, it was not, but perhaps next year! Our nests this year have been heavily impacted by three weather events: a front in midJune which resulted in 13 of rain over a 24-hour time period (although one of our patrol areas, Perdido Key, recorded 21.7 in that same time frame); a storm surge which occurred during Tropical Storm Debby at the end of June; and another storm surge from Hurricane Isaac in August. Although only four nests were actually washed out by the storm surges, several were subjected to heavy rain, repeated washovers, or situated in low-lying areas which did not drain well, and ended up with spoiled eggs or a seriously reduced hatch rate. The saddest case was a loggerhead nest at Ft. Pickens which was laid on the Fourth of July and assessed by a bio-tech on September 21 when it failed to hatch. All the hatchlings were found to have hatched and be fully developed, but none were alive. The biotech said they were curled up, just like they were sleeping, tiny and perfect, but the entire nest was lost. The most likely cause was drowning during Hurricane Isaacs storm surge. It breaks our hearts to lose a nest this way, but it makes what we CAN do to help them that much more important. or other trash you remove from the beach will help keep them from choking or starving; each will help keep them from being trapped; removing your tents and chairs each night will help keep them from being trapped or discouraged from nesting; and turning out your lights will help keep them from becoming discouraged to nest or disoriented when they hatch. YOU can make a difference! Until next time, Lights Out! ~~~Nest & Hatchling Update Pensacola Beach & Gulf Islands National Seashore as of Sept. 23: Perdido Key -GINS 20 Ft.
