The carefree days of summer
are over so the Pensacola Beach
Elementary School Sandpipers
will put on their sandals, pickup
their backpacks, and head back
to classes on August 20.
The school, which is ranked
among the academically elite in
the State of Florida, will offer a
number of innovations this year.
Anew concept will be the of
changing classes in grades three,

Why doesn't the fat lady
sing? Because it's not over, until
its over. The Santa Rosa Island
Authority, at their full board
meeting on August 8, voted
against the adoption of the
county's new hotel definition or-
dinance. The measure lost by a
vote of three to three with
Tammy Bohannon, Dr Thomas
Campanella, and VernonPrather,
against. Voting for were John
Peacock, Fred Gant, and Ed
Guernsey.
Members of the Board are
still seeking answers to questions
before theymake a final decision
"I am not ready to adopt this
ordinance tonight," Board chair-
manPrather said "Thatdoesnot
meanI don't agree with it. There
are just certain items which need
to be addressed such as how the
726 rooms of unlimited square
footage will be distributed. Also,
on what date does this become
effective? We still have some
work to be done on our part."
The County Commissionhas
directed the SRIA to bring their
hotel ordinance definition docu-
ment into compliance with the

staff had set high goals in their

meeting, August 22
The Board welcomed Ed
Schroeder of the Pensacola Visi-
tors Center who gave an over-
view of the tourist industry in
Pensacola, Pensacola Beach and
Perdido Key. He said Pensacola
Beach has a 30 percent market
share of the lodging sales when
compared to the other two areas.
The beach's lodging revenues
were $22,585,775 from October
2006 through June of this year.
"This is an increase of 46
percent over the last year," he
said "So far, all the numbers have
been through the roof and we
expect July will be the same. It
has been an incredible year "
John Peacock asked
Schroeder what people do when
it's a crummy day on the Beach.
"I know they don't go to
Pensacola," he said "There is
nothing to do there Do they go
shop in Destin? How do we
gather and use that kind of data?"
Schroederreplied that he had
not researched that
Prather commented that

damentals of going to different
classrooms, so they should be
well prepared for middle school.
As of this date, Principal Jeff
Castleberry and his staff will
welcome at least 119 students
who have enrolled. Class sizes
are kindergarten, 12; first grade,
23, second grade, 21; third grade,
18, fourth grade, 23, and fifth
grade, 21 A few of the class-
rooms exceedthe state's class size

forms and information packets
and provide any help necessary
The parents will be allowed to
bring their child's school sup-

"There may be days with less

Ashley Chisholm, represent-
ing E W Bullock, the SRIA's ad-
vertising agency, told the Board
how much publicity the firm has
generated for the Beach
"Five million dollars in ad-
vertising equivalency has been
generated through our public re-
lationship efforts," she said She
recapped all the newspapers,
magazines and television pro-
grams which have featured the
beautiful beaches.
Sandy Johnston, manager of
the Visitor's Information Center,
agreed, adding a report of a
record breaking number of visi-
tors, 5611, who came to the VIC
in July 2007, over 4791 last July.
"We continue to have inter-
esting requests from around the

library which resulted in an ad-
ditional 2600 books on the
shelves. Pensacola Beach El-
ementary School is a charter
school which receives no money
from Escambia County. When the
County announced that it would
be closing the Beach School, par-
ents launched a campaignto form
a charter, and after much hard
work, achieved the goal. The en-
tire community has been in-
volved in the success of the char-
ter school with the Pensacola
Beach Optimists leadingthe way,
donating thousands of dollars
every year from a school
fundraiser
School parents raise funds
through the sale of sea oats and
the Fall Festival And the Part-
ners-In-Education program
brings in significant contributions
each year The school, its dedi-
cated principal and teachers, and
the high marks the children get
on the FCAT, are a great source
of price to Beach residents.
Starting this year, the school
will become the hub of an arts
program, initiated by Liz Niven,
the new art teacher
"We will be starting an
evening Art Workshop Program,"
Liz said. "There will be classes
for adults and children in mosa-
ics, pottery, and print making "
Liz commented on her new
career, "I just found out that I
am to be the new art teacher at
the Beach School, so I am very
excited and proud. What a
beautiful location, and what an
energy packed place to work "
Other Beach School teach-
ers include kindergarten Jenni-
fer Neal, first grade Sandee
Bredesen, and second grade
Debbie Campanella.
So, when school opens this
year, the students will have a 11-
brary loaded with new books,
new teachers loaded with ideas
to improve their school days,
and the never ending fun of at-
tending a school about a half a
block away from the Gulf of

Barefoot on the Beach


It's football season and to
many fans around the Beach it's
"Who Dat" time. It's time to see if
theirbeloved New Orleans Saints
are for real. Can they repeat or
even exceed their last year's tri-
umphant season, when they won
the NFC South Division, won
their playoffgames rightup to the
NFC Championships where they
were defeated by the Chicago
Bears, one game away from the
Super Bowl? Coach Sean Payton
has literally buried last year's
record. This is a whole new year,
he says, and a time to begin climb-
ing the mountain all over again.
Right now the Saints are 0
and 2, losing to the Steelers and
the Bills. But, what the heck, it's
only preseason.
The Saints are owned by
Tom Benson, but around our
town, they belong to us. To Bobby
Draper, Wendy Brandon, Doug
and Darla Permenter; to Paddy
Blake and Andrea Brunt while
they were alive. And to Mousie.
Do you remember Mousie?
She is the artist from New Orleans
who lived a week or so outside
Bobby D's Saints Bar in a home-
made contraption which looked
like a covered wagon. Back in
those days, she made her way by
drawing delightful caricatures of
Beach people, mostly patrons of
Bobby D's. During the time
Mousie was Bobby D's resident
artist, the team played a pre-
season game in London, so we
had a Saints-In-London party.
One of the games was decorat-
ing an umbrella, so all the


Saints fans went off and bought
umbrellas which they lavishly
covered with paint and glitter But
no one could match Mousie's
entry She had made an umbrella
from palm fronds and a broom-
stick, painted it all gold and cre-
ated Saints designs with rhine-
stones. She easily won the $25
prize which she accepted grace-
fully. Today, Mousie is an artist
of renown Her paintings were
shown locally at Barbella's Gal-
lery inPensacola. I don't have one
of her paintings, but I have the
original sketch she drew of
Bobby and Lana which I hold in
high regard because she loved
them and the Saints
No matter how many years
the Saints fans ended the season
in disappointment, they never
gave up. They gathered every
Sunday bringing their pots of
gumbo to Bobby D's, and most
of the time their gumbo was the
best part of the celebration. After
New Orleans played their final
game, each year, Paddy Blake
would remark "Well, there's al-
ways next year." And now a new
era has arrived. The Saints are
winning. Bobby D's Beach Bars
One and Two are just memories,
and the fans are dispersed
around the island, so the Who
Dat headquarters is a thing of the
past. However, the many Saints
fans are still cheering in little pock-
ets all over the Beach.
I am about to stick my neck
out. I am going to make a predic-
tion forthe Saints this year as they
go marching onto the field, tak-


ing on the most elite oftheir peers
(The first regular season game is
against the Indianapolis Colts,
last year's Super Bowl winners.
That's awesome competition!)
Well, ready or not, here goes. The
Saints will win at least ten regular

SRIA Requests Proposals For Parking Garage Development


The construction of a park-
ing garage in one of three pro-
posed locations on Pensacola
Beach drew the attention ofmem-
bers of the Santa Rosa Island
Authority board at their vision-
ing workshop August 7.
In response to the SRIA's
request, Dave Hemphill,
Baskerville-Donovan engineer,
reviewedprevious bids to build a
parking garage and also pre-
sented inform ation on the present
garage concept.
At the conclusion of his pre-
sentation, Hemphill told the Au-


The next to last meeting of
the budget workshop followed
the regular Santa Rosa Island
Authority Board meeting onAu-
gust 8. The following items were
discussed:
> Expected revenue for 2007
will be $5.5millhon
> Consideration fees should
be earmarked in non-operating
revenue
>Lease fees should fund the
operations of the island
SEstimates that the SRIA
budget could grow to $10 million
in the next 5 or more years
> Regarding future hurri-
canes "A reserve fund is not a
luxury, it is a necessity" Fred
Gant, board member
> Employees will be receiv-
ing a Cost of Living increase of
approximately 2% and depart-
ment managers will also be award-


thority, "This parking garage dis-
cussion is, inmy opinion, putting
the cart before the horse This
discussion should be part of a
visioning process that should in-
clude studies of parking demand,
why there are parking needs, and
what return the SRIA would get
in this development A needs
analysis plus a returns and cost
analysis need to be completed
first. Otherwise the cart and the
horse are out of sync."
After the recommendation
by Hemphill, the Board contmued
to pursue the possibility ofa park-


ing merit increases in varying
amounts to employees approved
by the general manager
> A question arose regard-
ing the last time the SRIA board
got an increase in their stipend
which stumpedNita Omley, SRIA
finance department manager. She
did note that the Legislature has
to approve an increase. John Pea-
cock does not think the board
should be paid and donates his
stipend to ARC.
VeronPrather, Board Chair-
man, said that considering what
the Island has been through with
Hurricane Ivan that everything
was in pretty good shape.
The final budget workshop
will be immediately after the corn -
mittee meetings on August 22.
The SRIA budget will go to
Escambia County for approval on
September 1.

ing garage at the site of the
Visitor's Information Center, at
Casino Beach or at the site of the
SRIA office.
Each Board member voiced
his opinion on the parking ga-
rage
Dr Thomas Campanella
pointed out that the Beach is
owned by the public "We have
uniqueness," he said. "When do
we reach capacity and have too
much traffic and congestion?"
Thomas saidthe SRIAcould
not give land to a developer to
build a garage. He reminded the
Board that they cannot give
Beach land away because it does
not belong to them.
John Peacock suggested the
Beach needs to improve. "Gulf
Shores, Orange Beach, and Bay
Towne have so much," he said
"I would like to see us act like a
real city There are some really
smart guys out there who know
how to do these things."
He saidhe didnotknow how
to finance a parking garage and
suggested that taking a toll to $2
might be a solution."
After discussing the idea of
giving the developers land,
Tammy Bohannon said the SRIA
office should not be located on


waterfront property She liked the
idea ofbuildmg the garage in the
VIC area
Fred Gant also felt that the
SRIA should not give property
away. "I do like the concept of a
multi-use garage, retail, office
space structure," he said. "We do
need our own vision and cannot
emulate our neighbors to the east
and west"
Ed Guernsey gave a three
point opinion including (1) the
r'rl'-irne ir"'3 -h. lld be i rll

property is too valuable to be
used as an office and should be
developed to the highest and
best use, and (3) a plan should
be prepared which would be at-
tractive to investors that would
include the SRIA giving land in
exchange for office space on the
upper floors
Vemon Prather, Board chair-
man, noted that the parking ga-
rage would have financial consid-
erations and capacity analysis
that would have to be considered
BuckLee, SRIAgeneralman-
ager, offered a complete plan for
financing the garage. "The ga-
rage could be built at Casino
Beach with Local Option Sales
Tax money," he said. "The SRIA


could ask the County to pro-
vide the entire amount needed
with the promise of a certain
amount to be paid by the Au-
thority at a later date. The ga-
rage would contain an SRIA of-
fice, retail shops and a restau-
rant. The lease revenue would
provide monies for security and
maintenance ThepresentSRIA
property would be sold, and the
sale would generate the revenue
needs to repay the County's
loan.
Members agreed on one
constant for the garage. There
would be no charge for parking
Adrian Lovell, CoastalPark-
ing, Inc. was invited to add his
input.
"Parking would have to be
free to the public," he said. "Per-
haps, the Board should con-

Back to school, already? It
can'tbe. It feels like the summer
only began a few weeks ago.
Okay, I'm sure it feels longer than
that to Moms, but grandparents
need more time We are older,
slower, time is literally flying by
and we haven't yet done all the
things we planned for the sum-
mer. I guess there's always next
summer, although we're stillwait-
ing for the first water elon from
our garden. I use the term "gar-
den" very loosely, but we do have

reach maturity soon, like this
year! If not, it will still be con-
sumed even if we have to use
Sissy's Barbie tea set to do so.
We'll each have a teeny, tiny slice
and enjoy it immensely, then de-
clare our first summer garden a
raving success We do know how
to enjoy life on this Island no
matter what it brings us each day.
Is anyone surprised by the
reduction in hurricane predic-
tions for this season? If so, then
you obviously don't know our
Queen Shugah, Paulette Provost
Stop your grumbling she is the
Wooly Booger Queen and has
promised "No Hurricanes" for the
secondyearin a row! Remember
I mentioned her "No Hurricane"
rituals and ceremonies? Well,
they are, for the most part, con-
ducted with total privacy and se-
crecy, as well they should be!
The meteorologists can
blame warmer Atlantic surface
temperatures andAfrican sand all
they want, I know the truth and
my money's on our own Queen
Shugah! What isi iththhisAfri-
can sand, anyway? (Our own
weatherman, the late LesAnder-
son could probably have ex-
plained it to me, maybe.)
Keep your ears open for
some Wooly Booger surprises this
year Queen Shugah has worked
very hard for two years and she
may be ready for her next adven-
ture, soon.
Paulette, Charlotte Spencer
and I enjoyed a very interesting
and beautiful sunset on the gor-
geous deck at the new Elk's
Lodge. We had gone there to
meet Sherri and George Greene,
who happened to be visiting.
Well, of course, we missed
George and Sherri since they left
beforewearrived So.wedecided


to have our cocktails on the deck
and watch the sun set Actually,
that was Charlotte's idea since I
was trying to steer her and
Paulette to the Sandshaker for the
Junkanoo's "Mardi Gras m July"
party (to which we had promised
to make anappearance). So,there
I sat looking like a "one person
Mardi Gras Parade" if you say
Mardi Gras to me, I put on some
shiny stuff!
Well, we're watching this
amazing sunset, you know where
the sky is brilliant everywhere
you look and suddenly we real-
ize the cloud formation above
and surrounding the sun is
shaped exactly like elk antlers I'm
not kidding!
I screamed, "Look at the sun
- it's wearing elk antlers! "
And Paulette laughed, "So,
that's where they went "
It seems we had solved the
mystery of the "de-horned elk"
episode We had a wonderful
laugh as we imagined the paran-
ormal activities of our departed
friends, Deb Shaw and Glenda
McCleary!
No, we haven't lost our
minds and, yes, martiis were in-
volved. But, it felt wonderful to
picture the incredible smiles on
Glenda and Deb's beautiful faces
and hear the ring of their laughter
m our ears once more I'm sure
they followed us to the
Sandshaker...
You may have noticed that I
haven't mentioned cooking even
once. That's because it is not only
too hot to cook, it is too hot to
even think ofcooking (Notcom-
plainmg, just stating facts) You
may workup a sweatjust reading
a recipe. So, my friends (here and
the other side) and for the chil-
dren dreaming summer dreams as
you go back to school, this one's
for you.

Chamber Reports Beach Business Booming

Members Make Plans to Keep Fun Going


The Pensacola Beach Cham-
ber of Commerce members are
about to deliver a boatload of fun
and festivity over the next few
months as reported at their gen-
eral membership meeting on July
31.
Nan Harper, chairman of the
Event Committee said plans are
almost complete for the
Chamber's dedication of the
Harry Gowens Memorial Park on
Via de Luna.
"This children's park will
honor the memory of Harry
Gowens, who founded the
Pensacola Beach Elementary
School," Nan said. "We want the
Beach Community to turn out for
this laid back ceremony,"
Nan then announced that her
committee is cooperating with
Bamboo Willie's on the presenta-
tion of the Anything That Floats
and Bathtub Races on September
2. The races are a fundraiser for
the Chamber. The event known
as the Jamaican Fest will begin
on August 31, and will feature a
fashion show by Island Style, a
kid's area, and lots of good bands,
according to Nora Jones of Bam-
boo Willie's.
Also, Nan announced the
names of the subcommittee who
will head the "Season Your Holi-
days with Island Spirit" celebra-
tion set for the month of Decem-
ber. Co-chairing are Marta Ray,
Pensacola Beach Resort and
Shelley Johnson, Island Times.

ties, Chrissy Cook, Pensacola
Beach Woman's Club, Beverly
Boswell, Sandshaker Lounge,
Phyllis Shanks, Portofino, June
Guerra, Capt'n Funs and Paula


Sunshine Soliel, ERA Beach Ball
Realty.
During the Roundtable dis-
cussion, all Beach businesses re-
ported a high volume summer.
Phyllis Shanks, Portofino, re-
ported that the resort was up to
eighty percent occupancy this
summer. She also said the resort
has a new general manager Randy
Bernard, new marketing manager
Lorraine Christian, and new food
and beverage manager, Richard
Ball.
Sandy Johnston, executive
director, backed the members' re-
ports with figures on the number
of visitors at the Visitor's Infor-
mation Center.
Richard Butler, Toll Plaza man-
ager, confirmed the fact that the
beach was indeed busy, telling
the group of the increased num-
bers of cars during Blue Angels
weekend and on regular days. He
said there were 15,000 active tran-
sponders on cars this year.
The Chamber is planning to
purchase a generator to assist the
Escambia County Sheriffs De-
partment in powering the traffic
signal during power outages. Lt.
Gary Montee, Deputy-In-Charge
of the Pensacola Beach Sub Sta-
tion and Jeff Elbert, president of
the Chamber will make the ar-
rangements for this donation.
The next general membership
meeting will be Tuesday, August

OPENING THE OUTPOST Angelika Simmons' dream to bring an
eclectic mix of merchants under one roof on Pensacola Beach has
come true. Geronimo's Outpost in the Via de Luna Shopping Center
plans to host as many as 60 local merchants and artists. The concept
creates a marketplace where shoppers can stroll through a myriad
of artwork, treasures, gifts, clothing and accessories and never
leave the cool, enclosed space of the Outpost.

Island Times


By Dr. Chuck Randle
Pastor, Pensacola Beach Community Church


The summer has gone by
quite rapidly and here we are
getting ready for the beginning
of school once again. I hope
our teachers and administrators
and staff have had a restful and
healing time.
As I think of our teachers,
I am amazed and gratified again
and again for the expertise they
have in teaching, and for the
care and concern they have for
the children in their care. Of all
the teachers I had during el-
ementary and high school, only
one name continues to come to
mind easily -Mrs. Baker. I don't
know what made her different
from the others, but obviously,
she did whatever necessary to
make a lasting impression on
me. I do know she gave me the
basics of education that have
served me well throughout my
life.
Teachers are artists as they
paint word pictures in the minds
of children and take them from
worlds surrounded with not
knowing and begin to develop


their minds so that they become
insatiable in their desire to
know more about their world.
My five-year-old great
grandson begins kindergarten
this year, and he wondered the
other day how the teacher
would teach him to read. Hav-
ing never been a teacher, nor
taken a methods course in
teaching, I could only say that
the teacher would help him learn
what letters form words, and
from there he would be able to
read.
Teachers build on the work
of others as they develop
words, ideas, and concepts in
the minds of our children. Just
as a carpenter begins with the
foundation of a house, and
builds from that point, so
teachers continue the building
process of intellectual
achievements...a process that,
hopefully, will endure through-
out their lives.
I stand in awe of teachers
and I celebrate their dedication
and expertise.

It's August. Time to return to
class and time to look at the toll
that summer has taken on your
hair. One of the biggest threats to
hair is chlorine. Atoxic chemical
that strips hair of its natural oils,
chlorine can make hair dry and
brittle. Sunlight is equally dam-
aging to hair Just as the sun's
rays can burn skin, they canburn
hair, leaving it parched and frizzy.
To soothe sizzled tresses try clari-
fying shampoos which include
lemon verbena, mint and myrrh.
If you swim regularly in a chlori-
nated pool, choose shampoos
with corn syrup, citric acid, and
kelp that can help break chlorine
bonds.
Look for conditioners with
soy and wheat proteins and
amino acids to help restore shine
and luster. To protect from UV,
use shampoos and conditioners
with sunscreens, including
oxybenzone, titanium dioxide,
and benzophenone-3. Choosing
natural products that contain re-
storative herbs (like aloe, calen-
dula, chamomile, and henna) is
particularly important for hair
that's been dyed, straightened,
bleached, orpermed.
Certified organic ingredients
are increasingly available in
shampoos, conditioners, and
other hair products. Juniper, lav-
ender, lime, and sage are particu-
larly moisturizing and nourishing
organic ingredients. You want to
look your best on the first day of
school.
Sometimes we pick up more
than knowledge at school.
Sometime that can mean
dreaded head lice! Here are some
tips that might make the process
a bit easier for you.
1). Diagnosis The symp-
toms of head lice can include- an
itchy scalp, seeing red bumps on







We dings

the scalp and neck, seeing live
lice moving around on your kid's
head (can be mistaken for dan-
druff, but dandruffdoesn't move),
irritability and fever You may also
find nits (lice eggs), which are tiny
white specks attached to the sides
of the hair shaft.
2). Treatment: If you arejust
seeing nits, but no live lice, you
may be able to use regular sham-
poo, then try to remove them with
a nit comb. There are products
like Rid and Nix, found at your
drug store, or ifyou don't want to
use a chemical on your kids head,
try using Camphonique. Part the
hair off in small sections, rub the
oil into the scalp a little at a time,
using your fingers. Wear gloves.
Comb through the hair, coverwith
a plastic baggie, and leave onover
night. In the morning, use a nit
comb and the little buggers
should come right out! Repeat if
necessary.
3). Follow Up: To remove the
oil from the hair, use some
dishwashing detergent instead of
shampoo, and condition heavily
afterwards.
If you have any of these
beauty challenges, feel free to call
the Hair Hotline at 932-4323.
Here's to reading writing' and real
cool hair do's.


Giving your own home and
family the opportunity to experi-
ence the difference that antique
textiles can make is an original
opportunity, yet one that will cre-
ate a lifetime of memories. The
recycling that comes from breath-
ing life into "old" things gives an
exciting future to the work of art,
itself, as well as to the one who
enjoys its beauty. Think about
that the next time you re-
decorate...and give a fresh look
to a work of art that carries so
much history and yet faces such
a grand future.
Many opportunities abound
to use the works of art you have,
or to find those you wish to pur-
chase. Not sure how to use
them? Pickup decorating tips and
magazines at any bookstore, and
you will find growing public and
designer interest in recycling old
into new, or showcasing antique
within a contemporary design.
Not sure how to use color in
yourhome? Color is found around
the world, and is used and can be
integrated in our most contempo-
rary of designs.
Often, because we don't
quite know how to integrate color
in our own homes and offices, we
choose muted color schemes for
many rooms, and yet often

choose patterns for the bedroom.
Conversely, for much of history,
bedding and sheeting was
white-showcasing purity and
the ability to afford the same-
and then decorated with the
beauty of the day.
Think of the richblues orred
brocades used in the elegant time
of Napoleon. Consider the gold,
pink, soft greens and blues which
are commonly found in France;
yet we often think of ivory and
beige in our designs here. Merg-
ing a select color palette into your
home can add charm, elegance,
or subtle beauty regardless of the
size, shape, or location of your
home and rooms.
Gold leaf, painted wood, el-
egant marble designs in colors of
dark emerald green, rust, all the
way to fabulous white are found
in Italy and across Europe. You
can emulate the brown, gold, and


beiges of Tuscany.
Often, we are influenced by
what we see in design, in photo-
graphs, but find it difficult to
translate to livable space. Awell
trained designer can, in short or-
der, help you to assemble your
collection ofboth new and old or
antique furnishings, and place
them against a color palette that
benefits the room, the furnish-
ings, and the daily living needs
you have.
Try using color, antique tex-
tiles, or enlisting the help of a
good designer on your next
project. Send us a picture of the
old and then the new and share
your success stories!
Experience the difference,
and hopefully, breathe new life
into family heirlooms ofyourown!
May you be blessed with
cherished memories and exciting
futures.

By Freddy o os.TO
The other day I took a nice
drive down the oldNavarreBeach
Road as far as I could go. You
know just to try and get away It
had been a while since I had been
down there. To my surprise, I no-
ticed the piles of sand lining the
old road. It looked like sand
dunes, but something was much
different. The sand dunes con-
tained the remnants of the old
asphalt road, billions of tiny
chunks of black, greasy ugly as-
phalts.
Please explain this to me. We
can build new roads, open new
businesses, build countless con-
dos and we can't fix the basic fun-
damental sand dune. Are ya
crazy?
In fact the sand all over this
beach is littered with chunks of
debris like shells, road, concrete
and wood. Take a long look at it.
In fact take a drive to Destin and
see real sand dunes and real
sand. It will bring back the old
days for surely
So, what canwe do? It'stime
to address this folks. Our
children's childrenmight not ever
see a real pristine sand dune
again.
Sifting can't be that expen-
sive in the long run and not clean-
ing the sand will continue this
debris cycle forever In other
words, the debris is now part of
the ecosystem Wake up, please.
Take a long look at the sand,
Say something Write letters.
Clean the beach. It's been three
years!
Stop building 15 story con-
dos until our island is back to
normal! Sounds easy, but it will
not happen until we all do some-
thign and if you don't really care,
well, maybe you live in thewrong
place.
It's so easy to overlook. Take
the time, andjust look down!
Peace.

The Krewe of Junkanoo turned the Sandshaker Lounge into a
festive purple, green and gold Mardi Gras wonderland in the
middle of July. Mardi Gras is only six months away so Krewe
members (L to R) Beth Hewitt and Amy DePew shared their
Mardi Gras spirit with Conrad Rupkus. The Junkanoos had their
famous gift baskets available as prizes, a barbecue and a 50-50
drawing for the crowds. Live music kept the partiers on their
feet.


Pensacola Beach Woman's Club honored the July birthday girls
at their recent luncheon. This celebration was particularly sweet
since it was the last Woman's Club meeting that longtime
member Ina Hyer was able to attend before she passed away
August 5. Ina is seated, left, next Carleen Wheeler. Celebrants
in the back row are (L to R): Sandi Johnson, Bettye Davis, Trish
Burnett, Eileen Cywanowicz, and Lynda Knell.

Primer for a more efficient house heating and cooling system -


When you have something
you don't want, the normal solu-
tion is to gather it up and throw it
away That is how mosthome air
conditioners work They gather
up the heat inside the house and
throw it away outside This
simple concept is hindered by one
immutable fact Heat will only
move from a hot area to a cooler
area So how do they getthe heat
from a "warm" area (your 80 de-
gree house) to move to a hot area
(100 degree outside air) so your
"warm" area can get "cool" (72
degrees)? They use some pretty
crafty tricks
By compressing and expand-
ing special gases it is possible to
gather up and concentrate heat
If you do this just right you can
make the temperature of the col-
lected heat increase So with a
little fancy (and unfortunately,
expensive) machinery (i e your air
conditioner) you can gather up
the heat in your house and throw
it away But you have some
choices of where you throw it
away, too
Most air conditioners throw
away the unwanted heat to the
air outside That's what that
noisy piece of the air conditioner
that sits outside your house is
doing In a way that is like put-
ting your kitchen garbage m a bag,
lugging it all the way upstairs, and
throwing it out the window into
the top of a huge dumpster
Wouldn't it be easier if you could
just walk out the kitchen door and
throw it into a hole min the ground?
That's what a ground source heat
pump/air conditioner does
Instead of dumping the heat
to the hot air, it dumps it to the
cool (50 degrees) ground, 200 feet
below the surface This is easier,
quieter (no noisy fan), and more
efficient than trying to dump it to
the hot outside air
Lifeguards End Season
Lifeguards at Pensacola
Beach are winding down for the
2007 season The designated
swimming areas at Park East, Fort
Pickens Gate and Quietwater
Beach will be staffed based upon
the availability of Lifeguards
Casino Beach will continue to be
staffed with Lifeguards from 10
a m until 6pm through October

partment, 554-4296

Many ground source heat
pumps have another trick What
is the one thing in your house
that you do want hot? Your hot
water Many ground source heat
pumps recycle some of the heat
into your hot water tank before
they throw the rest into the
ground
And here's the neatest trick
of all With a little fancy engi-
neering a heat pump can essen-
tially run backwards and gather
up the heat outside your house
and put it inside when things gets
cold No need for a gas or oil
furnace, and it does it cheaper
If you are ready for a new
cooling system at home, further
investigate this Until then, just
appreciate the science that goes
into keeping you cooll
