PAGE 5 Island Times March 5, 2013 Santa Rosa Island Authority Public Works fast tracked a launch site at Park West to accommodate kayakers, catamarans and other non-motorized watercraft, according to Paolo Ghio, director of Environmental and Developmental services. His report was delivered to the Architectural and Environmental Committee at their February 27 meeting. “The parking lot has been striped to allow for boat trailers,” said Ghio. “The fenced entryway is large enough to accommodate a small boat trailer, but it has to be manhandled. No motorized vehicles are allowed on the sandy beach.” Avid sailor Chuck Beverly appeared before the Board on January 9 voicing concerns about motorized and non-motorized boats launching in a congested ramp near Morgan Park. The upgraded area at the most western Soundside parking lot on the island is a remedy to that problem. There is no charge to use the ramp. The A and E Committee gave three votes of approval to the proposed location and design of a new Pensacola Beach Visitor’s Information Center. Architect John Tice presented a site plan of a 1,6 square feet building located on pilings above the holding pond in the north central Casino Beach parking lot. The building’s exterior would be designed to complement the other SRIA buildings. “We would not have to interrupt service to our visitors,” said SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee. “After the construction is complete, we could move from the old VIC and it could be leased to another small business.” Board Member Janice Gilley was in favor of the idea, but voiced concerns about the lack of strategic planning and a master plan for the entire area. “Is this the right use of this ('$"++!( into the future?” she asked. The property over the holding pond is dead space according to staff. The project is estimated to cost 2, and the money is available. More shoreside attractions were approved by the Development and Leasing Committee including a kayak, paddleboard and beach chair rental concession at the Pensacola Beach RV Park, and a wild rotating barrel ride at Flounder’s. The Fishpipe, owned by Chris Thompson of Eastern 6!."M$$)(1+4mittee approval to operate on Flounder’s Beach. “There are only 12 in the entire world, and one could be located on Pensacola Beach,” said Thompson. “Riders climb inside a clear barrel with a small amount of water, as it spins it feels like a waterslide.” The Administrative Committee started their meeting on a high note. Dottie Ford, director of Finance reported the income for the month of December was 8 percent higher than the previous year. The revenues were 288,276 for the thirty day period. Susi Robichaux of EW Bullock Associates, the Authority’s ad agency, gave an update on the implementation of the EcoTourism project. The project and accompanying marketing plan was funded through a Gulf Tourism and Seafood Promotion Fund grant. The grant request was spearheaded by beach locals Lila Cox and Beverly McCay. As part of the progress report, Robichaux noted that there are 29 locations for signs or information kiosks highlighting the eco-tourism program. The program has a marketing budget and online interactive component. The agency hopes to see the program in place before Memorial Day. The grant program which is funded through BP has advertised a second round of grant applications will be accepted. Discussion about whether to apply for additional funding to augment the eco-tourism plan and support it through two years, or to host a car show followed. Director Lee announced that after discussion with Innisfree hotel executives it would be appropriate for the Authority to request a 2, award for a nationally recognized Car Show to take place the last week of October. He noted that is traditionally a low occupancy time on the Island. The show has been very successful in Panama City Beach in the off season and the promoter has three decades of experience. Dr. Lila Cox, beach resident, implored the Committee to make the ecotourism project the benefactor of a second grant request. “This is project is not a one weekend shot that could be rained out,” she noted. “This is $"("+()(+$%!(!! mission statement that this board approved. If they give us another dedicated to the ecotourism trail and project, it could change the face of Pensacola Beach.” Josh Butler and Jason Nicholson, both of Innisfree, explained how the Car Show would impact the island economy, perhaps even saving jobs in the off season. “This is a golden opportunity to bring exposure to the Island at an opportune time,” said Nicholson who is also a Beach Chamber Board member. “It comes at a time when we have to begin laying off employees, so it would prolong employment, too.” Harlan Butler, president of Innisfree Hotels said, “I do not see this as an either or. We need to celebrate ecotourism. This, too, is a an e ene an T mmiee en da a way to increase bed taxes, bring guests who shop, eat and buy gifts. I request that you entertain both these ideas.” The committee voted 2 to 1 to have the staff move forward with preparing a grant request for but would not identify what project the grant would be dedicated to. The Full Board will discuss at their March 1 meeting. A number of items are slated to be reviewed at upcoming meetings A report is being compiled from 2 pages of documents regarding lease fees, taxes and comparisons to other areas. Set for March 2 Committee Meetings Progress report on Core Area redevelopment and improvement projects. Set for March 2 Committee Meetings Neighborhood Road condition report and estimate to repair. Set for March 2 Committee Meetings List of non-budgeted projects to be considered for funding include recreation park improvements, Sabine Channel dredging, island sidewalks, water tower maintenance and stormwater fallout service on Pensacola Beach Blvd. Set for April 24 Committee Meetings. The SRIA Full Board will meet Wednesday, March 1 at p.m. at 1 Via de Luna. The meetings are open to the public.

I know we have more seasons than anywhere else in the entire world. Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining, just the opposite in fact. Our many seasons are high on the list of all the reasons I love living in paradise. They also help our tiny island thrive thus ensuring the livelihood of beach businesses and residents. Having said that, I pray those serving as stewards continue to be reminded that greed is one of the deadly sins and sometimes you need to know when enough is enough. I know they love paradise as much as I do but there are times we have opposing visions of what it should be. I love the concept of the island becoming eco-friendly. I was raised in the country and taught to respect and love all of God’s creatures (although I never could learn to love snakes I recognize they serve a purpose in the food chain). I was also taught that if ever given a choice between helping an animal or a person, I should help the person. Well, I’ve always wanted to help both and I believe we have the resources to do this now. It is the perfect opportunity given the amount of BP money awarded to our area. Why can’t we add an even brighter concept of becoming handicap-friendly? If you think we already are, I challenge you to spend a day in a wheelchair navigating the island or trying to put your feet in the Gulf of Mexico. Keep in mind you only have use of your hands and some don’t even have that. .0-$ -)(1!$1 eryone should be able to enjoy and share our paradise. That includes being able to actually get to and in the water. We live in an area with many handicapped citizens. We have a huge population of disabled Veterans who live here and deserve every respect, consideration and opportunity just like the rest of us. If you accept my challenge, you will understand and if you didn’t, you never will. Most believe the wooden cross-overs are for handicap accessibility. Not so, they are there to protect the sand dunes. This may be why they end in stairs in what might as well be ten thousand miles through soft sand to the water when your only mobility requires a special chair. I know some of you are picturing some huge, ugly concrete at Casino Beach right now. There is an easier and better way. There is a special rubber pad used for helicopters landing in certain areas. These would surely be feasible for Casino Beach since they could be removed under hurricane threats and other necessary situations. These rubber squares can be put together to create the handicap accessibility. Another option would be the Handicap Beach Tricycles. I met a young man in a wheelchair during a festival on the beach and talked to him about the beach accessibility. He was having a great time but was unable to get to the Band he really wanted to see. The only access was through the sand. He has his own beach tricycle but it’s very awkward and time consuming to load and unload. Wouldn’t it also be a big bonus for our community to advertise and promote a special “Handicap Beach Weekend”? I can already picture the ads for “Eco-friendly and Handicap Accessible for all” I try not to use my column as a soap-box, but this is something dear to my heart.

He can still walk without requiring a wheelchair, but his condition is deteriorating and I fear that day will come. Even now he cannot walk the beach because the softness of our sugar white sand is too stressful and aggravates his pain. If only we had some way for these special people in our world to share all the joys in paradise available to us. Maybe some day. There’s not a lot of fun stuff to share because we’re all too tired and trying to catch-up all the chores neglected during the last few months.

Many religious people feel it is their duty to defend God from impious men condemning or killing because they best know who God is. What if God is hidden in the other? If God’s name is unspeakable, immersed in its own silence, merged with our human names? When did we see you? ou didn’t name yourself. We didn’t recognize you. The name is discovered in the other because God is never separate, the ground of being not a being that can be labeled. Only by entering silence silence is taking the focus of attention off ourselves and projecting it into the unknown $"%"+!(!/' Christians can forget that feeding the poor, clothing the naked and welcoming the stranger is a work of silence once our attention is truly on those we serve, not on ourselves or the institution behind us. In the silence of such love “service provider and service user” reveal God to each other. And in so doing those cold labels M$$%$'/ "')'"+(",!! $"%"+1/ The other can be threatening. Different color, food, language, dress or customs. If, on the other hand, we are attracted to the other we can fear falling into their otherness and so being absorbed or simply rejected. There is no worse pain than the emotional exile of rejection. There is no greater joy than when the other smiles back from their heart, recognizes and seeks you. God is not an alternative to the risk and pain of human relationship. God’s love is the intimate otherness of the common ground in which we meet and painfully learn to love each other. “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and make you welcome naked and clothe you sick or in prison and go to see you?” (Mt 21ff) Are you ready to play to win?

I answered and the caller on the other end, my boyfriend at the time, wanted to know two things my t-shirt size and my time for a -mile run. With a bit of dismay in my voice, I responded with why do you want that information? Well, I am trying to enter us in the McGuire's St. Patrick's Day Prediction Run. But that's not for another month and what makes you think we will still be dating then? It had already been a long-term romance for me as we approached the three week mark and I wasn't so sure that another four weeks would be in the cards. Size and time, he demanded in his best 2nd Lieutenant voice. Medium and 27 minutes. I caved in like a souffl being pulled out of the oven. The next four weeks flew by as I began to somewhat train for this race. In all honesty, I really ran miles in a time closer to minutes and my t-shirt size was and always has been a large. I am not sure why I even bothered going for training runs during those cold February days on the beach since my initial prediction was that I wouldn't even be still dating him come race day. But I did. And we were still together as a couple at the start of the race. I suggested that we not run together as it was obvious to me that there was no way I could keep up with him. He assured me that his prediction time was my prediction time and that we would cross the finish line together, hand in hand, at the 27 minute mark. All of the sudden I was feeling a little green. nfortunately it was not because of envy or nerves, but embarrassment. Throughout the entire first mile, I thought up excuses as to why I was off my 9-minute mile pace finally coming up with the ultimate entrapment of oneself. I was going to blame my plodding performance on a t-shirt that was definitely too small thus impeding the flow of oxygen to my lungs and with the caveat that it must have been accidentally mislabeled. For the second mile, I purposely backed off the pace as I was really breathing hard. My perspiration smelled like a brewery as I had participated in the Pensacola Beach Pub Crawl the night before. I was starting to think all of this was a bad idea -long-term dating, extreme drinking, time tampering, size shifting. It couldn't possibly get any worse. But it did. As we headed for the home stretch an Aviation Officer's Candidate School class began to close in on us. The more audible their chant became the more our pace quickened. I couldn't take it anymore and just stopped. What are you doing? Stopping. ou can't stop. That AOCS class cannot and will not pass us. Well I just did. And yes that AOCS class can and probably will pass me. If it bothers you so much, run ahead. I have no problem falling in behind them. No, I promised you we would run this and finish this race together. And finish we did in 2712. As I look back on that day, I may have been off by 12 seconds on my time and a full-size on my shirt, but that was small Irish potatoes compared to how many races I have now attended with my 1989 prediction run partner. So once again, while hanging out in what is now my beach house, I received a text message from my husband, the Colonel, saying that he had entered us in the 6th Annual McGuire's St. Patrick's Day Run on Saturday, March 9. After 24 years, he didn't need ask my shirt size or my time. And just for the record -large, minutes, and he will be waiting for me at the finish line. ntil next time...

This is Galaxy Girl reporting back from my intergalactic travels. Whew that was a close one with that asteroid passing by Earth, wasn’t it? And that meteorite hitting Russia was awful. I remember reading that Nicola Tesla wanted to create a shield for individual countries. No one could enter a country without permission and Mr. Tesla realized that this would prevent war. I think the same thing holds true for all this outer space debris like meteorites and asteroids headed in our direction. Just look at the beating the Moon has received with all the craters and pot holes. ikes! Have you noticed lately that independent, wealthy groups are getting together for space travel? Destination Mars! Hmmm let us think about this. Ponder what type of shield are they going to have for their spaceship? Everyone knows who travels in space any distance, that you need a serious space shield. And who is designing their spacesuit? It’s not like going to a well-known couturier and placing an order with several fittings. Oh no, these suits will have to withstand serious sand storms not to mention the sand particle issue. What? ou aren’t familiar with the sand particle issue on Mars? As you well know grains of sand on Earth are round unfortunately, the particles on Mars are jagged. These particles could tear into a person’s spacesuit and depressurize it. There are just a few minutes in that situation to get a person out of harm’s way namely death! And that’s not all how long are these people planning on staying? Are they planning on coming back to Earth at all? And are they going to explore inside the Martian tunnels? And do you think they might find artifacts from a previous Martian civilization? And do they plan on bringing space-mobiles with them for travel on the planet? And are they bringing a mechanic with them? ou laugh, who is going to fix everything? I travel all over this niverse, but PLEASE don’t tell anyone. They will come chasing after me with either a computer to spill the scientific beans or a strait jacket depending on their point of view. Either way, I’m outta here! ARIES (March 21 to April 19) ou could have some problems with doubters who don't share your enthusiasm for that new project you're supporting. But use the facts to win them over to your side. TARS (April 2 to May 2) Someone is impressed by how you managed to get your case to the right people, despite attempts to keep you on the outside looking in. Expect to hear more about this. GEMINI (May 21 to June 2) Good for you -your gift for seeing both sides of a dispute helps cool down a potentially explosive workplace situation. Some family-related tensions also begin to ease. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) our determination to prove yourself is put to the test by midweek. Counting all the positive factors you have going for you will help you get over your self-doubt. Good luck. LEO (July 2 to August 22) Several co-workers are still determined to resist coming over to your side. But don't let that stop you from presenting your proposal to the people who count. Stay the course. VIRGO (August 2 to September 22) ou might prefer to be taken on faith and not have to prove yourself. But the truth is, you need to offer more facts if you hope to persuade people to accept what you say. LIBRA (September 2 to October 22) A family situation takes an unwelcome turn. While others might be looking around for answers, you'll soon sort it all out logically, and the matter will be resolved. SCORPIO (October 2 to November 21) Someone might try to create doubt about your reliability for his or her own agenda. But your reputation and your colleagues' longstanding faith in you saves the day. SAGITTARIS (November 22 to December 21) An unexpected change of plans forces you to come up with an alternative by the end of the week. Look for colleagues to offer valuable suggestions. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Nothing upsets the Goat as much as broken promises. But before you vent your anger, consider that this could ultimately prove to be a blessing in disguise. AQARIS (January 2 to February 18) An old workplace problem you thought you had solved for good resurfaces. But this time, co-workers will take a more active role in helping you deal with it. PISCES (February 19 to March 2) Be careful not to be misled by a negative reaction to one of your more important projects. If you believe in it, then it has worth and is, therefore, worth staying with. BORN THIS WEEK Everyone appreciates your gift for finding beauty, even where it seems least likely to exist.

The important thing to remember is that all personal information and programs that you have added to the computer will be gone after the recovery is finished. Depending on the brand of computer that you have, you may be given the option to back up your data before doing a complete system recovery. But it is your responsibility to make sure that you have saved all important files. If your computer will not start Windows, backing up your information is more difficult. But, it can still be done by removing the hard disk from the computer. To do that task, you might need the help of an experienced technician. Some people get confused about the difference between a “restore” and a “recovery”, and lose their data by making the wrong choice. A “System Restore” means that you will simply be going back to some earlier point in time that was before the current problems showed up. In that process you select the date (using a calendar) to which you would like to restore your computer. Sometimes that process solves problems, but often it does not. In some situations, that kind of restore process cannot be completed because too many changes have been made. The System Recovery is sometimes done using the original Recovery CDs. In most cases today, the CDs are not shipped with the computer. For most computers, you can order the CDs by contacting the equipment manufacturer. sually the manufacturer includes a program that you can use to make them yourself. The CD creation program will be on the Programs Menu. Also, the manufacturer may allow you to start the System Recovery by pressing a key, or combination of keys, on your keyboard. Those keys will vary, depending on the manufacturer. Once the recovery is started, it should not be interrupted. This article was provided by The Stukey Group.

Three dozen Pensacola Beach Chamber members crowded into the Pensacola Beach RV Resort's upstairs meeting room, February 26, to hear upbeat updates. Newly elected Board Chairman Beverly Campbell welcomed new members MediaCom, Vitamin Sea Fishing Charters, ProHealth and Emerald Coast Real Estate Photography. Spring has sprung early on the island with a full event calendar including the upcoming Go Irish on the Island March 11-17 Stone Crab Festival, March 117 at Bamboo Willie’s, Bands on the Beach Kick Off Concert, March Crawfish Festival, April 12-14 at Bamboo Willie's, and Pensacola Beach Advocates' Earth Day Islandstyle, April 2. Taste of the Beach organizers announced that America’s favorite chef, Andrew Zimmern will appear at the festival on September 14. The Beach Chamber received a BP grant to showcase the festival to a regional audience. Beach resident Rick Gordon announced that the Miracle Strip Corvette Show, which shares the Taste of the Beach weekend, expects record crowds. Hoteliers and vacation rental companies report the overnight stays are growing. Snowbirds are nesting here once again. Judy Nicholson of Resort Quest and Marta Ray of the Days Inn encouraged members to join the Snowbird Committee. They are working to prepare a welcome package for the 214 Snowbird Season. “We need this business,” said Ray. “Let’s really go out and get them.” Santa Rosa Island Authority Executive Director Buck Lee noted that guests may have a brand new Visitor’s Center in the Casino parking lot if the SRIA Board approves a proposal to construct a new Center in the new location. “I believe that it is time to get a more efficient and modern space for our Visitor’s Center,” said Lee. “If we locate it in the Casino, cars can arrive from the east or west entrance to the parking lot. Right now, once you see the Center, you have already driven past it.” Lee also reported that he was communicating with the top brass at the nited States Navy regarding the Blue Angels Show. His quarterly breakfast meeting with business owners is set for Tuesday, March 19 at 9 a.m. at the SRIA. Leslie Matthews of VisitPensacola showed off the new Visitor’s Guide and offered free delivery to any businesses that have not already received their copies. Matthews also introduced Jennifer Ponson from Pensacola State College, who serves as the SkillsSA event coordinator for Florida. “Skills SA brings high school and college aged students to Pensacola to compete April 27-2,” said Ponson. “They stay on the Beach and their families often travel with them.” The events, which are held at the Bay Center, test an entrant’s skills as they relate to the workforce. Pensacola will serve as the site again in 214. Opportunities exist to place giveaways in the competitors welcome bags. Chrissy Cook brought a message from the Beach Community Church that Bingo and Potluck Sundays are open to the public. The Church’s Randle Hall is now available for party rental. Cook said all the details are online at www.thebeachchurch.com. Campbell reminded the members that the Beach has plenty to offer, year round, to tourists and day visitors, but it takes teamwork to bring those guests to the Island. “We have to pull together and support each other to keep this place rocking and rolling,” she said. “I appreciate all who work hard to make that happen.” The next membership meeting is Tuesday, March 26 at 8 a.m. at Days Inn Gulf front conference room. Membership and additional information is online at www.PensacolaBeachChamber.com.Pensacola Beach esort Hosts Chamer eetingGN ITripAdvisor’s Travelers Choice Awards for 21 include Gulf Islands National Seashore along the Pensacola Bay Area and Pensacola Beach on the list of Top 2 Beaches in the nited States. Valeria Palmertree, communications director for VisitPensacola, shared the good news. “The Gulf Islands National Seashore makes the list at number and Pensacola Beach is touted as the twenty-second choice.” The top spot went to Ka’anapali Beach in Lahaina, Hawaii followed by Siesta Key’s public beach. The Gulf Island’s National Seashore’s beaches on Santa Rosa Island were heralded as unspoiled. One traveler wrote, “Miles and miles of white sand and blue water.” Pensacola Beach was described as “best beach ever.” For the entire list, http www.tripadvisor.comTravelersChoice-Beaches.
