Before I begin, I think everyone should know that I do not like rodents. In fact, I hate them mice, rates, hamsters, bats and even those soft, furry little sea mice who scamper among the grasses in my back yard. That sets the stage for my horror story. My back door, which has no screen, was open one night a few weeks ago and in marched Gus, sea mouse which she placed lovingly near my chair where I was trying to read. I think it is to my everlasting credit that I did not scream, did not jump up on the chair, or otherwise create the idea that I was afraid. I couldnt. I was frozen. I wasnt afraid. I While I stared in disbelief, Gus stood by, looking very unconcerned, while the mouse took refuge behind a palm in my living room. You dumb cat. Get that thing out of here, I yelled. Gus just sort of smiled, all the while keeping her predators eye on the palm. I walked backwards into the kitchen and got a broom. I took a deep breath and swept at the pot which held the palm. No mouse. Gus rushed it then and it careened across the Chase it to the back door, Gus, I yelled again. Gus then sat down in the at the mouse who was trying to hide behind a magazine basket, and then at me, who had no place to hide. You are the most stupid, idiotic, uncooperative animal I have ever had, I told Gus. And if this mouse doesnt devour me, Im calling the cat catcher to come haul you away. Gus just smiled again. She never has taken me very seriously and only is nice to me when were out of Meow Mix and Im the only one in the house with a license to drive to the grocery store. Back to the mouse. Every time it stuck its black nose around the basket, Gus charged after it. This went on several minuets until I took command and started chasing it with the broom. I swiped at it and the fat little thing tumbled head over heels (do mice have heels?) down the stairway into the front hallway where the front door would not open because the hurricane had stuck the lock. Gus and I stood on the landing and watched S.M.* ger behind a plant for safety. At this point Gus grew tired of the cat and mouse game entirely. She stretched out on the landing and fell asleep. Wake up, Gus You are a cat. This is a mouse. Remember your heritage! She snored loudly. I walked through the hallway, broom in hand, as if there was no one there except me. I ran through the downstairs to the back door and opened it. I crept back into the hallway and tried to picture myself as a fearsome large, black Halloween cat. I never saw a cat try this, but I hit the planter with the broom and S.M. rolled into the game room, hugging the wall. I felt pretty good when it dawned on me, she would always hug the wall. Not once had she run straight out into the room. I looked around. S.M. was behind the piano. Gus had ambled into the middle of the game room, where she took up her laughing pose while I chased the mouse around the base boards toward the open door. Stealthily, never taking my eyes off the varmint, I closed the bedroom and utility room doors and then shunted the mouse toward the open door. It was all going well until she ran head on into a stack of Islanders, just before she could have escaped. Watching her as she stayed in retreat in a corner under my desk, I moved the Islanders and began my broom strategy again. She ran backwards under the piano. Again, it is to my everlasting credit and military courage that I did not cry when this setback occurred. Cautiously, I went after the piano with the broom. She ran under the desk, all the time sticking to the wall. I ran to the desk, chasing her at brooms length. She smelled the sea air and ran to freedom. I slammed the door shut and ran upstairs and slammed that door shut. Today, I am ordering new screens. And if Gus wants Meow Mix, she can drive herself to the store. *Sea Mouse The Beachs original Mardi Gras organization, the Krewe of Wrecks, trades glitter for ghoul with their thirty-third Halloween Costume Contest and registration meeting, Monday, October 29 at the Sabine Sandbar at 6 p.m. The Wrecks open their membership rolls to one and all at the the Mardi Gras spirit and want to be part of the wrocking and wrolling Wrecks, then bring $30 and sign up with the Sec-Wreck Melanie Waite on the waterfront deck at the Sandbar. If you are looking for a group with a meeting agenda, Roberts Rules of Order, a dress code and strict rules, you might not have the Wrecks attitude said Running Around Wreck. Our requirements are that you have a generous spirit and know how to have a good time. The Wrecks were founded and organized by Frank Douglas, Larry Geisel and Jane Waters Mardi Gras parade rolling on February 23, 1980. Allen Dean, Rudy Delgado, Kevin Evans, Rosemary Ryle, Shirley and George Womack, Jim Sheffer, Carol Douglas, Mike Steele, Harry Gowens and Carol Geisel The krewe entertained and er looked back. The Krewe of Wrecks changed the way winter looked on Pensacola Beach, brightening the dreary months with meetings and parties. The Krewe of Wrecks Mardi Gras parade was recognized in 2006 as a top event in the Southeastern United States during February. All these years later, the Wrecks are joined by dozens of krewes, who meet year round. Their impact to the economy and the community are unprecedented. The good times generate tight knit groups who spend countless hours fundraising for charitable giving. What was once heralded as a great weekend on Pensacola Beach is indeed a Mardi Gras season which stretches out over four months and beyond. Some things never change. The Wrecks are as welcoming as they have ever been. They bring the true spirit of an island Mardi meeting of the year, October 29 or at any of the following meetings and locations.

The Trivia Master has stumped the trivia playing faithful. The Beach Chamber has been around almost three dozen years, according to the Trivia Master. He asked which family has had three members on the Board of Directors. The trio are Jim, Billy and Amy Martin. With Flounders and Crabs, We Got Em anchoring the core area business district, it makes sense that the Martin family would be among the Chamber faithful. Amy joined the all-volunteer board this year. Tim Pike who normally is taking care of business at the Holiday Inn Express, darted to his computer with The Elberts as his answer. Good thinking, Pike. Jim Elbert was among the founding fathers of the Beach Chamber and also the father of the past Chairman Jeff Elbert. Two generations and two real The Queen of Wrong Answers Joanne Brooks reigns over the mistaken, misspoken, and barely there memories. Queen Jo traveled back in beach history to a time long forgotten. She thought it might be Rose, Dean and June Baird Guerra. June served as a Chamber board member for many years, she was the only family member to do so. Queenie, you rule the wrong! Hang ten on your computer keys and email islandtimes@ bellsouth.net with the correct answer to this question. In 1979 Dave West presented a compilation of three years of outrageous footage from skate, sail and surf montages called The Dave West Anthology Sea Yourself.

PAGE 5 Island Times October 16, 2012 The Pensacola Beach Advocates are giving residents and leaseholders a voice in pivotal issues which may change the island forever. Taxation litigation, wildlife protection, hurricane ey projects are on their annual meeting agenda for discussion. The meeting is set for Monday, November 12 at 5:30 p.m. at Pensacola Beach Community Churchs Fellowship Hall. Danny Kepner, attorney with Shell, Fleming, Davis and Menge, will update leaseholders on the tax litigation. Kepner, who represents Pensacola Beach leaseholders, will be presenting oral arguments before the Florida Supreme Court on November 6. The Supreme Court is under no time deadline to make a ruling, said PBA President Jim Cox. But, it is important to hear from our attorney. Escambia County Commissioner Grover Robinson, IV, whose district includes Pensacola Beach, will discuss the RESTORE Act funds and the impact they could have on the Beachs infrastructure. The Santa Rosa Island Authority forwarded a list of six projects to the Commissioner for funding consideration. They included Beach renourishment and dune walkovers, $16 million; Soundfront beach renourishment, $1.1 million; Sabine Channel dredging, $500,000; Casino Beach performance area improvements, $1 million; Core area lighting and pedestrian safety, $2.6 million; and pedestrian boardwalks encircling core area, $3.2 million. The PBA board would like the County to give a preference to the barrier islands when allocating the RESTORE Act funds. The Beach and the Key were the areas which were impacted by the arrival of oil on our sand, said Cox. I believe that it is important to make a geographic priority when ranking the requests for funding. The PBA board of directors actively communicates with local One such topic is the need for clear and concise information during hurricane evacuations. The County staff and other local agencies have agreed to meet to improve the process, at the PBAs request. Beachkeepers, an environmental committee of the PBA, is involved in the drafting of a lighting and wildlife protection ordinance. The committee also hosts Recyclemania. JJ Waters, Beachkeeper chairman noted that the Pensacola Beach Advocates Beachkeepers Committee has been recognized and approved by the Environmental Stewardship Action Council. The SAC raising the level of social, environmental, and economic performance through shared responsibility and collaboration among business, nongovernmental, academic, and government organizations. This is impressive, said Waters. Our entire area good stewards of the sensitive island environment. PBA Board Member Ray Ascherfeld has been following the Escambia County Noise Ordinance issue. The ordinance is currently being reviewed and revised by County Attorney Alison Rodgers for consideration by the Escambia County Commissioners. Commissioner Grover Robinson understands the challenges that this ordinance must address. Balancing the needs of residents and businesses will be the challenge, said Robinson. Ascherfeld has created a petition for Island residents and leaseholders to sign. The document suggests hours, allowable sound levels with measurement techniques that should be included in the ordinance. The signed petitions will be presented to the Commissioners. Clearly, we need some controls on noise in residential areas of Pensacola Beach, said Ascherfeld. This petition will also serve to make the residents aware that there is no ordinance to rely upon right now The Advocates have multiple ways for members to participate. The Beachkeepers would like any interested members to join them. Waters will be available at the annual meeting to answer questions and add names to the group. The board is seeking a person to serve as their Director of Membership and Communications. Members will be asked to nominate and vote on a slate of for the upcoming year. The PBA Annual Meeting is open to all interested parties. Members and non-members are encouraged to attend. For those who wish to join or renew their memberships a check for $30 made payable to Pensacola Beach Advocates can be remitted at the meeting.

Halloween, or All Hallows Eve, is the night before All Saints Day, which remains today as a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics throughout the world. It is a day where we celebrate the saints of God, the Church triumphantly at rest in Heaven. We remember the big ones like St. Augustine, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Catherine of Siena, and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. But we also remember the countless others who have persevered in the faith during their life on Earth, sometimes to the point of shedding their blood. Some of them, their names are known only to God. As we remember them, they are a reminder to us about the goal of life, the point of life. They remind us that achieving success is not the goal of life; rather, sanctity, or holiness, is the goal of life. And what does it mean to be holy? It means being like God. For these saints that we celebrate on November 1, who was the God that they wanted to be like? God is love. The key to holiness for all of these women and men, whom we celebrate with great joy, as they remind us of the goal of our lives, is that they persevered in becoming a total gift of self in love. The God that they had encountered reveals himself in a of love. As they behold the events of the world in light of the face of God, whom they now behold for all eternity, what will they think of what we are doing with our lives? Looking at pretty Kasie Forman you would never be able to tell that she has cancer. The young vivacious blonde has been in remission since 2006 and on a mission to help other children diagnosed with cancer with her Kasie Helpz Kidz non-profit foundation. Cancer is a horrible disease that is affecting more and more children every year, said Kasie. Its something that has changed my everyday life in so many ways. Its given me a different perspective on life, showed me how precious our time on earth is, and given me so much determination to make a difference and help others in need. Nothing is more rewarding than being able to lift the spirits of a child who is going through a hard time and having to face a life threatening illness. Kasie has created a day long festival on Pensacola Beach to raise funds to support local children. Kasie Helps Kidz is Sunday, October 21 beginning at 11 a.m. at Bamboo Willies. The funds are used to support education and community awareness. When hospitalized during her battle with cancer, Kasie was isolated due to the treatment she received. It impacted her so profoundly, it has been part of her crusade to visit other children facing the same situation. With some of the proceeds from her fundraising, Kasie purchases teddy bears which she delivers to hospitalized children. Each bear carries an inspirational message. The October 21 event is about giving back, having fun and doing the things young people are meant to do. She has created contests to challenge entrants athletically and artistically. The Volleyball Tournament kicks off the festivities at 11 a.m. on the sandy beach behind Bamboo Willies. The entry is $30 for a six person co-ed team of setters and spikers. The rocking sounds of Avenida 16 will crank up energy when they take the stage at 2 p.m. and a Silent Auction will accept bids from 2:30 to 3 p.m. Are you handy with a knife? Well, carve out some time on Sunday, October 21 to enter the Pumpkin Carving Contest at 3 p.m. The entry fee is $20 to compete as a pumpkin carver. This is a day full of activities to raise some funds, said Robert Gleim, Bamboo Willies general manager. Come out and have a good time for a good cause.

We have had so many people try to help locate him. There have been so many calls from people who cared about Verdells fate. It is heart warming to see this community come together as a team to help my cat. Everyone from residents to vacationers, Realtors, the island maintenance department, joggers, walkers, those on bicycles have been very supportive and involved. Sometimes people just called to see if he has been found. He has not. Verdell is seventeen. He grew up with my children, my grandchildren and is the king of his domain. I can only imagine how he got so his way back. We remain hopeful that he will be found and are still asking for any information about his whereabouts. I dont always have the right words, but I wanted to say thank you to the island community. My warmest gratitude, Kerry Dicke Womans Clubbers Kick Off New YearPensacola Beach Womans Club got right down to busiyear, September 20 at the Beach Church.

Alligators are in the sewer. Man on the moon is made of cheese. Gum takes seven years to digest. So when the Colonel and the Kid kept saying they were hearing a rooster crow every morning, I just laughed it off as I just knew there were no cockerels on the beach. At least none I could hear through my temperature controlled walls. I posted to Facebook about the mysterious rooster and immediately received confirmation from Charlotte Spencer that he does exist and was potentially a neighbor. Now, that got my attention. After all, who doesn't want to be awakened by a little cockadoodledoo every morning? Without hesitation, the air conditioner and alarm clock were turned off. Every window in the house was opened. I was determined to hear him crow. Bring it on, rooster-boy! The next morning, when I could have slept in, I was wide awake at 4 a.m. No rooster. Not a peep. Not a chirp. Five a.m. came and went. Still no rooster. Not a cocka. Not a doodle. Not a doo. I couldn't help expressing my feelings out loud, "What's wrong with this bird?" It had ruffled my proverbial feathers, as well as the down comforter that the Colonel was trying to sleep under. I felt like I had been duped by Charlotte and my boys, all of whom had spent time in the British Virgin Islands where the roosters are loud, plentiful, and crow morning, noon and night. Six a.m. came and went. I was pacing around in my kitchen like a chicken with her head cut off. With reckless abandon, I put away the clean dishes. I needed a little clatter to distract me from the pure morning silence that was of my house. Where was he? By 6:30 a.m., I was convinced that the rooster on the beach was a myth. He was a legend just like the ones I had grown up on in New Orleans. Alligators. Moon cheese. Gum. The Colonel, the Kid and Charlotte had lost their status as local ornithologists. But at 6:40 a.m., as I was enjoying a most beautiful sunrise, the kind that soothes the overwrought soul and brings much delight to sailors, I heard him. Not once, not twice, but quite a few times. He let out a series of the most gentle crows as if to say, "Good morning and enjoy your day on Pensacola Beach." Then he was quiet. I was so thrilled that I had It was like being let in on a secret by Mother Nature -the more time you spend outside enjoying everything Pensacola Beach has to offer the less you have to worry about the sandspurs in your carpet.

Thanks again!The rhythmic sound of shuffling cards is music to the ears of poker players who sign up to compete in the Texas Hold Em Celebration 4444 Education tournament, Sunday, October 21 at 2 p.m. at Paddy OLearys Irish Pub. The tourney, which is hosted by Rick Uzdevenes Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun, is open to everyone. If you have never played in a poker tournament, this is a perfect time to be part of the fun, said Uzdevenes. The dealers and regular players are friendly and helpful. The proceeds help the school. Celebration 4444 Education was created by Uzdevenes as a way to support the music department at the Beach Elementary School. The charter school is always at the top of the state rankings, but receives no funding from Escambia County. It operates on state funds and donations. Of course, I am a musician, as are a bunch of the guys who play cards, said Uzdevenes. We realized this would be a perfect way to raise a few dollars and make a difference in our community. Over the last five years, Texas Hold Em 4444 Fun representatives make a check presentation during the Beach School Fall Festival. It usually tops $1,000. Music teacher Mary Holway noted that the donation has helped the music department purchase much needed supplies and a variety of instruments. The tournament registration opens at 1:30 p.m. where players sign in and are issued a rack of chips. A donation bucket is located at the registration table. There is a fifteen minute Texas Hold Em class for rookies or rusties. If you have never played before or have not played in a long time and want to brush up, you can get a little warm-up time on the felt said Terri McKamey, who is helping to coordinate the tournament. The Shuffle Up and Deal is promptly at 2 p.m. Beach Time. During the first hour players may add to their stack of chips with an additional donation to the school. There will be a break every hour. We will increase the blinds and color up the chips at the top of each hour, said McKamey. By 6 p.m. the players will be seated at a Final Table and a winner will eventually emerge. Hard to know exactly how long that will take. Prizes will be awarded immediately after play. There will be consolation prizes in addition to the Champions award. Paddy OLearys is located in the Via de Luna Shopping Center in the historic district of Pensacola Beach, at 49 Via de Luna. For more information on the tourney, call 850-324-2667.Card Sharps And Rookies To Face Off In Annual Texas Hold Em TourneyWhat would make Beach School teacher Joy McLaurine and Pensacola Beach Womans Club President Shelby Smith show you their bras?

Currently we are dealing with the Ransom virus, though I think it originally showed up in 2011 in some areas. When that virus shows up on your computer, it looks like a warning from the FBI. On the screen, you will see text from the virus indicating that you have been visiting inappropriate websites and will have criminal charges. You will be instructed to take $200 (in cash) to a drugstore or grocery store (typically Walgreens, Walmart or CVS) and purchase a pre-paid card. The criminals want you to pay them by sending them a MoneyPak order. Having locked your computer screen so that you are not allowed to do anything else, they are hoping that you will believe that they will unlock your screen when you give them the money. If a person actually has been visiting inappropriate sites, they might be easily convinced that the scam is a real message from the FBI. How do you get these viruses? It might be a drive-by situation, in which the virus automatically downloads into your computer when you open a website. Or, it could be delivered to your screen as a pop-up. As soon as you click on the pop-up, the virus is installed in your computer. If you see any suspicious or unwanted pop-ups, it is best to completely avoid clicking on them. Press the ALT and F4 keys at the same time to see if the screens will close. If they do not close, hold your computers power button down for a few seconds to force the computer to shut down. When you turn on the computer again, check to see if the problem has gone away. You should then try to run a virus scan with your anti-virus program. If that does not work, the virus program may have been sabotaged by the virus. In that case, get help from a technician, because the virus still has control of your computer and you may be at risk of identity theft.

Fido Fills SRIA BoardroomDiscussion about a proposed dog park on Pensacola Beach filled the Santa Rosa Island Authority boardroom to capacity October 10. Leaseholder Karen Sindel asked the Board to consider allowing dogs at Park East and Park West daily from sunrise to 10 a.m. The dogs would be allowed to swim in the Sound and the Gulf at Park East unleashed, but would be confined to the Gulfside at Park West and must be leashed. From March 1 to October 31, dogs would require leashes at all times due to turtle and bird nesting season. Owners would be required to clean up after their pets and keep them under their control. Additionally, Sindel envisioned a comprehensive information network to share rules and publicize the park to residents and visitors. Currently, Escambia County ordinances prohibit dogs from stepping on the sands of Pensacola Beach, Sindels proposal, if approved by the SRIA, would require a vote from the County Commission to change the ordinance. Worries about waste and bad behavior were prevalent among those who spoke against the proposal. Many presenters spoke about the need to enforce rules with stiff penalties for noncompliance. Rachel Concannon was firmly against the park. I am concerned with noise, waste, dog attacks and dogs that have not been immunized, she said. There are too many reports of dogs mauling children. No animal should be allowed on our beaches. Beach resident Tena Wright was in favor of the park. Responsible pet owners take their dogs to the vet, socialize them and clean up after them, she said. Lets police this. Control it. Allow it. Try it. Board member Ed Guernsey is a dog owner, but was concerned that a dog park does not fit with the Boards mission to be an ecotourism destination. Board member and Beach resident Tammy Bohannon disagreed. She added that the idea was in step with those who are attuned to nature and animals. Chairman Dave Pavlock asked that the Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Pensacola Beach Advocates prepare position statements for the SRIA to consider in the process. The discussion will continue. The SRIA board will accept more public input on the dog park at their November 14 meeting, 5 p.m. at the SRIA office, #1 Via de Luna. Proposed Dog Park Sparks Interest Prospect of Tree Lined Avenues Grows Authority Sends Money To CountyThe Santa Rosa Island Authority Board will give Escambia County $500,000 from the Island Beautification Plan to plant palm trees along Via de Luna. The interlocal agreement was approved by the Board at their October 10 meeting. Board Member Tammy Bohannon, who served as the chairman of the now defunct Palm Tree subcommittee, ceremoniously made the motion to approve the allocation. The agreement gives the County total control over the project from design to planting. The agreement denies the SRIA any further decisions regarding the project. Board Member Ed Guernsey asked why the SRIA board was transferring this power to the County. SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee clarified that the planting will take place on the countyowned rights-of-way with the exception of some private leasehold property. Its their road, their median and their right-of way, said Lee. We are giving them $500,000 for a project that could cost as much as $700,000. The landscape firm which will be hired by the County will be responsible for securing permission of individual leaseholders who live on the north side of Via de Luna to plant trees on their property. If an individual agrees to the planting, they must also agree to irrigate the palms. In his report, Buck Lee alerted the Board to a sand fencing project that had gone awry. As part of a NRDA award of oil spill monies, Escambia County received funds to renourish and plant on area beaches. Due to the way the funding was structured, the State of Florida spearheaded the project. The result was two miles of sand fencing erected at the east end of the island too far south. When complete there will be 8 miles of sand fencing and extensive vegetation planted. I took photos and submitted them to Commissioner Grover Robinson and to Escambia County Coastal engineer Al Browder, said Lee. The sand fence is obviously in the wrong place. Grover said he will get this corrected. Board Member Fred Gant expressed concern about projects on the island without SRIA oversight. We need to do our job affirmatively, said Gant. We need to be consulted and used as a resource. The Board acted on a suggestion from resident Jim Cox that projects as large as those submitted to Escambia County for RESTORE Act funds should be accompanied by a detailed project narrative. The Board voted to task staff to seek out the resources to create a narrative to enhance the Islands chance to receive funding. The Santa Rosa Island Authority will hold a special board meeting Wednesday, October 24 at 5 p.m. The committee meetings will follow. All meetings are open to the public.

And if your selftelling yourself why you can't do it, list all the reasons why you can. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is one time when you might want to put some distance between you and the job at hand. It will give you a better perspective on what you've done and still need to do.

PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Recent news from someone you trust could help you make an important decision. Also, be prepared to confront an upcoming change in a personal situation. I sometimes sit and wonder what kind of world we would have if everything was fair and balanced. You laugh and say, that will never happen, but maybe it can happen. I watched a great documentary entitled, Thrive by Foster Gamble. Yes, the same Gamble of Proctor & Gamble fame. He apparently has been thinking along the same lines as many of us. and those responsible for fostering the problems throughout the world. The people responsible make up a short list. And what astounds me besides the fact that less than one percent of the population own almost everything on this planet, is that there is a solution or set of solutions to our problems. What do most people throughout the world want? Access to food, water, shelter, decent health care, education, but most importantly they want to be free. We are not free. We are losing more and more of our freedoms every day. George Orwell said it best with this profound comment, In a time of Universal Deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. This leads me to free energy. I ing and saying we have wars so we have access to energy. It isnt free. I used to think the same way. I no longer do. There are machines out there which can tap into zero point energy. This is the energy that surrounds all of us. This was the one thing that Nicola Tesla wanted for humankind access to radiant energy. Everyone would have free power in their homes. The moment he pursued this effort, his funding was cut off. Many people have followed in Teslas footsteps. I can hear the skeptics claiming there are no such machines. What happened to their inventions? Type in on Yahoos search engine Secrecy Order Title 35, United States Code (1952) sections 181-188. The web sites that pop up are: www.uspto. dated_laws and www.law.cornell. edu/uscode/text/35. The heading for sections 181-188 is entitled, Chapter 17 Secrecy of Certain Inventions and filing Applications in Foreign Countries. The various United States government agencies are allowed to seize any invention which they deem detrimental to national security. The invention is then kept secret, and the patent is withheld. And guess what, if you send your invention outside of the US, you are in big trouble facing a potential prison if it would create world peace, it reason that it could potentially create world peace. There is no doubt in my mind that something is happening on a rapid scale on this planet. I think there is a consciousness emerging in our evolution among many people in the world. So I think the best thing we can do as human beings is to educate ourselves and work toward better goals. Check out the documentary Thrive. It may be the best thing you do for yourself, your family, your nation, your species and our planet Earth. www.thrivemovement.com
