Hurricane Gods Fear Beach's Famed Wooly Boogers

Shugah, Her Royal Sweetness,
The Benevolent and Adorable
Titular Ruler of the Sandspur
Republic, Pailette Provost, has
"Get out of your sleeping

she commanded "We must ap-
pease the Hurricane Gods once
agam "
She annual Bawl will be Sat-
urday, December 1 from 4 to 6
p m atthe Paradse Bar and Grill
The Wooly Boogers come out
only once a year at the Bawl to
perform their rituals of singing,
dancing, eating, drinking, and
telling tall stories to shoo away
any future storms
"We're doing a good job."
Queen Shugah said "We've
warded off the storms for the past
two years ina row "

The Wooly Boogers have
gleaned their psychic powers
stemming from an incident that
occurred twenty-seven years ago
on the Island
The Escambia County Ser-
geant-in-Charge of the Beach
sub-station just plain didn't like
the Beach family And that was
why, on one historic New Year's
Eve, he arrested Kenny Williams,
the Beach family's kingpin He
took him to jail, but he couldn't
holdhim because itturned out he
wasn't doing anything more
crimmal than standing in front of
Kevin's En L.a Playa
Kenny did not and does not
harbor any bitterness over the ar-
rest In a recent telephone con-
versation he simply laughed
when reminded of his ordeal and
sent a message to the Beach fam-
"I want you to know I love
everyone of you," he said

Kenny, a retired electrical
engineer now lives in Beulah
However, his arrest did not
sit well with his friends on the
Beach, so the protests began The
Sergeant-n-Charge smugly re-
ferred to the Beach tribe as
"Wooly Boogers," a not very nce
name which spawned multiple
public olbections Sheets hung on
balconies proclaiming the integ-
rity of the Wooly Boogers who
owned houses, paid taxes, both
ad valorem and leases, and their
main occupation was having fun
Among them were teachers, en-
gineers. pilots, boat captains,
business owners, attorneys, and
doctors Hardly the guttersnipes
the deputy declared them to be
He continued to harass them,
even arresting one for jaywalk-
To shorten this long story,
finally, through the intense efforts
of the protesters and exposure in

The Islander Newspaper, the
Grand Jury conducted an inves-
tigation The sergeant was sent
away End of story
So, the Wooly Boogers went
into seclusion and did not emerge
again until 1996 when His High
Wooliness, Les Cleutat, founded
the Wooly Booger Social Club
Original, certifiable Wooly
Boogers followed Kenny Will-
lams to the new Club Later, the
membership grew by leaps and
bounds when "coulda-shoulda-
woulda-beens" and the
"oughtabeswannabes" were ac-
The Club quickly became a
benefactor to the Island when

projects in the first year of their

lawsand everything, even as they

Officials Say Tourism Increases on Pensacola Beach

The Santa Rosa Island Au-
thority received a welcome report
at their November 14 meeting
when Ed Schroeder, Pensacola
Visitor's Center, told them tour-
ism for the 2007 was up
"The good news is that tour-
ism is up seven percent county-
wide andthe islands provide over
half of our revenue." Schroeder
Ellis Bullock and Leslie
Smith, of EW Bullock Associates,
theAuthorit's advertise agency,
added their numbers which re-
flected an increase in tourism
"We had a good year in
2007," Bullock said Sprng was
up ten percent over 2006 and
snummerwas up twenty-eightper-
cent We are about where we
should be "
In response to the request of
LaBahia for the construction of
six additional dwellmg units to be
added to the Islands total cap, the

Board voted four to two to allow
the leaseholder to move forward
to Escambia County and the De-
partment of Community Affairs
Board member Thomas
Campanella said the time for this
request has expired
"I have read all the history
on this dating back to Manager
Jim Sheffer telling them they had
to build the units They did not
'heir time has expired it also
appears that this Board is too will-
mg to send this somewhere else
for approval It dilutesthe Boards

The Board voted five to one
to rescind the time constraints for
conceptual approval placed on
the Days Inn andPortofino They
also confirmed that the County
has the authority to assign the 726
units that exceed 850 square feet

In his Executive Director's
Report, Buck Lee answered ques-
tions he gets asked most People
want to know how many units
were destroyed by the hurricanes
"Ivan took down 709 struc-
tures and Dennis destroyed 87,"
Lee said "Right now 150 resi-
dences have been permitted or are
in some form of construction
There are 292 vacant lots "
Dave Hemphill. Baskerville
Donovan, Inc, reported that Via
de Luna would be completed by
December 15 or liquidated dam-
ages would begin on that date if
the project has not been finished
The Board voted unanimously in
support ofthat deadline After the
road has been completed Lee,
Thomas Campanella and Matt
Mooneyham, SRIA director of
Environmental and Developmen-
tal Services, will ride the street
and make sure it meets Florida
department of Tlransportation
standards before sirninr off on

the final project
Jack Kirk, a resident on Via
deLuna, asked the Board if cross-
walks or some kind of speed con-
trol will be put in place
"A pre-construction study
noted that the average speed on
Via de Luna was 42 5 miles per
hour on a two lane road," Kirk
said "I feel the new road will turn
into a drag strip "
Buck Lee said that four more
Escam bia County deputies were
in Radar School and he is request-
ing that they be sent to the Beach
in January They will be on duty
from 7 to9 am and 3 to 6 pm
according to Lee
"They will slap you with a
$185 ticket for speeding," Lee
said "If you see a bunch of
people pulled over on your way
to work or coming horn e, you will
slow down "
During the Board member's
forum Tammy Bohannon asked
for a funding update on the pro-
posed parking garage Lee, wlho
had to wait for Board approval

Barefoot on the Beach

ByJane Waters Cooper

It's Thanksgiving. Time to
count our blessings. Here are
just a few of the many bountiful
joys we find in our Thanksgiv-
ing basket.
Apparently, Escambia
County Commissioner Mike
Whitehead has put his attempt
to abolish the Santa Rosa Island
Authority in the freezer. At least
for now. Beach residents need to
remain vigilant and watchful as
well as thankful.
At long last, it looks like the
roadways on Pensacola Beach
will be complete in time for the
Christmas festival "Season Your
Holidays with Island Spirit."
Even Via de Luna. In addition,
Springtime will not only bring

flowers and showers, but the re-
opening of the road into Fort
Pickens and the new disposable
Earle Bowden Way to Navarre.
Cheers and thanks.
So far, so good for the resi-
dents. The suit is still in the courts
and could remain there for some
time. Remember, the last tax tri-
umph for the Beach folks ended
in the Florida Supreme Court.
Blessings to the attorneys who
are fighting so hard to win this
precarious suit.
What an asset this unique
charter school is to our commu-
nity. The principal, teaching staff
and kids have brought national
distinction to our Island by re-
ceiving the Blue Ribbon School

Award. But most important, do
not forget the valiant efforts of
the parents who saved the
school when the county decided
to close it. They deserve the
thanks of everyone. They
banded together and with hard
work saved the school, and their
efforts have been more than jus-
tified. Thanks to them, Pensacola
Beach Elementary School is
among the best in the land.
If ever Thanksgiving sends
a message of major importance,
it is helping others. Beach folks
do that on a regular basis the year
around. Support for the children
in foster care, Hospice, Favor
House, and even the severely
impoverished Indian children in
South America, to name a few.

This list just barely hints at the
giving and sharing by Beach
folks. Thanks.
Wouldn't everybody love to
live here? Spectacular sunsets,
sparkling waters, miles of white
as snow sand beaches. Add palm
trees, gazebos, bands and festi-
vals including Fourth of July fire-
worksandthe Mardi Gras parade.
Pelicans and Blues Angels take
to the skies in unbelievable for-
mations. People travel hundreds
of miles to enjoy these amenities
for a few days. To Beach people,
it'sjust an every day occurrence.
Why are Islanders so sup-
portive of each other, so closely
knit, so unlike the rest of the

world's population? Answer the
questions and you will know
how thankful we should be.
When my children were
small they said a poem which
reflected the way they felt about
the world when they sat down
at the Thanksgiving table. I'm
sure many of you are familiar
with it. In four short lines it cov-
ers just about everything there
is to give thanks for.

Thankyoufor the worldso sweet.
Thankyoufor thefood we eat
Thanks for the birds that sing.
Thankyou, God, for everything.
Happy Thanksgiving

Sisters Host Beach Brunch

It won't be Christmas until
the Sisters of the Beach say it's
Christmas. This year, the season
will be officially and
rambunctiously opened by the
Sisters at their brunch Sunday,
December 9 at Flounder's.
Spokesperson for the group, Deb
Friedman, says she thinks it starts
at elevenish.
No reservations are required.
Just show up wearing your best

Christmas finery, ready to drink
mimosas, and eat fine Flounder's
food. Just be sure your vocal
chords are in good condition for
that day so you will be able to
join the theme song, "Here's to
the sisters, we love you so
much..." Well, you know the rest.
The annual Jingle Bell Cara-
vantoAriola Drivewill follow the
brunch. What follows the cara-
van is not so clear.

If you've never been to see
Willie Nelson live in concert, you
need to go. It's like visiting with
an old friend that loves to sing
and play guitarl Charlotte Spen-
cer, Marilyn LeNormand Paulette
Provost, Elaine Mitchell,
Courtney Winstead andI traveled
to Orange Beach to do just that
And what an amazing and won-
derful weekend it was! We
stopped for a quick dinner at a
place called"Live Bait". Notwant-
ing to be too full to scream and
sing along, we each ordered a dif-
ferent appetizer and shared. It
was perfect, delicious and Elaine
and Paulette were able to watch
theLSUgame We finishedjust
in time to arrive at the concert
arena, which is outdoors. It was
a little on the chilly side, but Willie
never failstowarm the heart! I'm
still singing. (no, not out loud,
but in my heart)
It was the best trip tothe "far
side" ever and I want to thank
Courtney and Elaine for the hos-
pitality, cooking, driving and en-
Well, it's Thanksgiving and I
hope by this time you are ready
to eat and give thanks My fa-
vorite has always been pumpkin
pie. Way back, when I was preg-
nant with my daughter Melanie, I
worked in a bakery in Georgia. It
was called "Billy's Bakery" and
his wife Margaret was just a little
more pregnant than I The smell
of those pies overwhelmedus and
we managed to eat every single
pumpkin pie as soon as it was
pulled from the oven We would
cut it into 4 pieces and devour it
immediately That is where I
learned cake decorating and a lot
about baking cakes and pies. Ifs
a wonder I didn't weigh 200
pounds by the time my daughter
was born in Januaryl Needless
to say, Billy didn't sellmany pump-
kmin piesthatseason Sorry,Billy!
Once my sisters and I were
grown-up we began taking turns
cooking the Thanksgiving turkey
for dinners at Mom and Dad's. I
cooked my first turkey when my
daughter was three-years-old. I
was very young and still learning
to cook. So, my sister Gail told
me to put it in the oven at 225
degrees and cook it overnight.
There were two very important
things I learned' 1)Icannotsleep

with my oven on for fear of burn-
ing down the house, and 2) I can-
not smell turkey cooking all night
and not want to eat it for break-
By the time Ihadto cook the
next turkey, microwaves had ar-
rived Having received one the
previous Christmas, I was excited
to try a turkey What a snap this
wasgomgtobe! Onemmorprob-
lem, you have to have a micro-
wave pan large enough to hold a
giant turkey and still fit in the mi-
crowave I messed up every dish
in my kitchen before realizing this
pan did not exist As with most
of my cooking, ithas all beentrial
and error, mostly error
In the next issue, I'll have
some cake baking tips for you.
Here's my favorite thing to make
with leftover turkey when you
cannot face another turkey sand-
wich It'seasyandtherearemany
different sauces found m the gro-
cery store that make it even easier
(Chicken tonight sauces, garlic
and mushroom sauces, etc.) or
any cookbook has the basic
white sauce recipe You can also
use frozen, canned or fresh
veggies (fresh will take longer to
cook); even leftovers will work.
Okay, let's cook....

2 unbaked (9") deep-dish pie
2 Cups, chopped cooked turkey
1 (10oz.) pkg. Frozen mixed

Ifyou are having a party, estimate your
wine needs by figuring a half-bottle of
wine per person, as a minimum. This
yields about two and a half glasses of
wine perperson. Bear in mind that most
people will be sipping their wine over
the course of a few hours, in which
case it cannot hurtto have more wine
on hand. Betterto have too much than
to run out Unopened bottles can al-
ways be enjoyed at a later date.As for
opened bottles, recork them and put
them in the refigeratto preserve their
freshness White wine will be ready
the following night, straight from the re-
frigerator Allow red wine to return to

Surf Report ;By Freddy Esposnio ... .
The changing coastline

The Point
It was a magical place, a
place where Gulf Coast surfers
could ride world class waves. A
point break that had perfect surf
and incredible conditions. We
called it Ft. Pickens Point or The
Back before several hurri-
canes changed this classic break,
The Point on Pensacola Beach
was hands down the best break-
ing wave on the entire Gulf Coast.
The set up was simple. East
winds built the surf on the main
beaches for days, but as the wave
turned around the bend at The
Point, the winds were offshore
and this set up a super long per-
fect left handed wave that some-
times ran for 100 yards or more.
A dream come true. In addition
there was a spot we called the
Back of the Bay which was a short
powerful right hander that tubed
like crazy.
Surfers from around the world
traveled here to ride this perfect
wave, but what has happened?
Well, years of sand building
on the edge of the channel has stop
the progression of waves to the
Beach. It started with Hurricane
Frederick in 1979, then Opal,
Georges and, of course, Ivan.
Sandbars are everything
folks. They regulate the form and
speed of the swells as they ap-
proach the Beach.
Years ago they dredged the
channel for the aircraft carrier
U.S.S. Lexington which kept the

channel deep, and now there's talk
ofa new dredging in the channel.
Is this really going to happen? Is
great surfing at The Point com-
ing back?
Right now the only way to
access the Fort Pickens is by boat.
The Point still breaks, but is very
fickle. The boat trips are long and
bumpy and sometimes don't pay
off, but some of us go anyway.
The sand has been washed away
from the main point. The place
looks strange now. The point area
is one of the most beautiful areas
in Florida and now we can't even
just drive down there to check it.
It just seems to me that Fort
Pickens, a part of the Gulf Islands
National Seashore would have
received the funding for a new
road immediately. Tourists and lo-
cals alike enjoy this natural set-
ting, but here we are over three
years after Ivan, and still no road
The days at The Point were
classic to all surfers who caught
waves winter and summer. We
lived for that place. It was away
from the crowds of tourists and
swimmers. And, wow, we had big
So what do we do? It was the
one place we could go when con-
ditions were too rough on the
main beaches. Is all lost? Never
to be seen again? It would be a
pity. Think dredge.
Until then, we are stuck at
The Pier, The Cross and Calle

The "Eyes" have it!

Eye makeup application
takes practice. Experiment with it
to find what works best for you.
Here are some tips for showing
off your most expressive feature
- your eyes.
Applymg Mascara
You might want to consider
using a lash curler especially if
you have short eyelashes that
tend to grow downward. (Like
me!) You should start at your lash
line, and work your way out,
about three-quarters of the way
to the end of your lashes, squeez-
ing gently, for ten seconds each
time. Under no circumstances
should you use a curler after ap-
plyingyour mascara. You can end
up with all your lashes stuck to
the curler Been there. Done it.
(Wearing falsies for fun is one
event, but putting them on every-
day is not any fun at all.
Start applying your mas-
cara on your lower lashes (less
chance of smudging on the top).
Try wiping offyour wand with a
clean tissue before use. This
takes off excess and causes less
clumping. Begin at the inside cor-
ner of your eye and work your
way out, wiggling your brush a
little, while you work from the
base to the end. Some people like
to let the first coat dry before

starting on the second. This feels
drying and just doesn't work as
well forme.
I use a lengthening mascara
for the first coat and finish up
with a volumizing one for thick-
ness. Finally, comb through with
a brush to separate lashes.
Never share your mascara
and toss after three months.
Eyeliner Tips
The desired effect of
eyeliner pencil is to give your
eyes more definition plus creat-
ing a frame around your eye. To
do this heat the end of your pen-
cil withablow dryer orlighter (be
careful, not too hot). Let it cool.
Pull your eyelid taut and get the
line as close to your lashes as
possible. Smudge with a Q-tip to
soften. You can even line your
inner eye for a nighttime look.
If you are using a liquid, use
the same application techniques
but try short strokes at first until
you get better at it. Personally, I
prefer a liquid liner because it
lasts longer.
I will write about party
makeup tips next time. I could
write a book on that subject! If
anyone has any questions, feel
free to drop by the shop and ask.
I enjoy helping out.
Happy Turkey Day to all.

Where in the Handbook for
Mothers does it say that every
Thanksgiving you have to go into
your child's classroom and pro-
vide the holiday art and craft?
And when I say you, I actually
mean me. It seems no parent ever
signs up for Thanksgiving and
my husband always volunteers
"Sweetheart, it'll be great,"
he says with unbridled enthusi-
asm. "You can make turkeys from
hand prints and bring in cookies
and punch. I think you should
dress up like a pilgrim, too."
I smile and think to myself,
he is so pre-school. Turkeys from
handprints. Cookies. Punch. The
miserable, freezing conditions that
the pilgrims survived would be
nothing compared to the icy re-
ception I would receive from any-
one above the age of five.
So over the years, I've be-
come the master of the Thanks-
giving classroom festivities. I
have celebrated in three different
states at four different schools in
five different grade levels. I have
had as few as seven children and
as many as 50 and have a new
found respect for parents who
pull their kids out early as to go
skiing for the entire week of
For my son's kindergarten
class, I served up a half dozen of
the finest turkey and gravy frozen
dinners that money could buy.
Therewasa little moment ofsilence
when boxes of pizza did not ap-
pear from out of the red warming
bag, but all was forgiven when I
said they could eatthe dessert first.
I can work a classroom of six-year-
olds and I was very fashionably
dressed in my black dress aind
white lace bomnet. We made wish-
bones out of tea stained cotton
swabs and a dab of hot glue. I do
hope some day that all those
wishes come true.
While living in California, I
taught in the Montessori school
that my son attended. After par-
ent orientation, his teacher came
to me and said, "Your husband
signed you up for Thanksgiving.
Every year we read the book
"Stone Soup" and make soup." I
was so relieved. I could read a
book and I am good at making
soup. How hard could this be?
Turned out his teacher read the
book to her class andmine, and I
was responsible for cutting and
chopping all sorts of different
vegetables with 50 kids ranging in

age from six to nine. It was a good
thingalltenofmy fingerswerestillin
tactbecausethe nextmorning, after
long and sleepless night ofsoupmak-
ing, I had to schlep in pot after pot
after pot of"Stone Soup." My hus-
bandcontributed Hewentsurfingand
came back with four wind and sand
wo stones- one for each pot
It only took me two moves
cross country and a new school
to realize that my pioneering spirit
would definitely be called on ev-
ery November and that I need not
reinvent the wheel of thanks. My
specialty has become Thanksgiv-
ing Memory Baskets. In second
grade, the kidsmade baskets from
paper. For third grade, they
painted brown pint size straw-
berry containers that I had saved
all spring and summer. This year,
for fourth grade, they have
wrapped balloons with string,
dipped them in glue and will pop,
cut and fill come the Wednesday
before Thanksgiving,
My favorite part of this
project is the filler. Every year I
order the chocolate Earth balls
which represent the New World
inNorth America and a great place
where people could go and live in
freedom. Next are the tiny twist
pretzels which symbolize the pil-
grims' belief in God and praying

hands. The Mayflower wasn't ex-
actly a luxury cruise ship, so ameal
of oyster crackers (cold biscuits)
and jerky (salted meat) just might
have been on the nightly menu. It
is a good thing the pilgrims cut
down trees and used logs to build
their homes, but for this basket
stickpretzelswill dojust fine. The
mini marshmallowsremindthe stu-
dents of the snow and the first
winter in the new land in which
only halfofthe pilgrims survived.
Turns out Squanto was a real life
saver (any flavor will do). He
showed the pilgrims how to plant
com(nuts) by placing four seeds
ing (gold)fish(crackers) aroundthe
seeds for fertilizer. He also taught
the pilgrimshow totap maple (can-
dies) trees to get their sap and
taught them how to identify and
dry wild berries (Trix fruity cereal)
for the winter. Finally, their baskets
are filled with Teddy Grahams be-
cause on top of everything else
the pilgrims had to learn to defend
themselves against wild animals.
Yes, I have a lot to be thank-
ful for this year and it all begins
with the fact that I have the honor
and privilege of spending time in
my son's fourthgrade classroom.
Not many parents today can say
the same. Until nexttime...

When you think of Thanks-
giving do memories ofturkey, eat-
ing too much and Pilgrims flood
your mind along with football and
parades? Well, ditch that mindset.
Who in this groovy crowd of
readers remembers, dare I say it,
Alice's Restaurant Massacre?
And who made Alice's Restaurant
famous? Arlo Guthrie did in his
1967 debut album entitled,
"Alice's Restaurant." It was based
on a true story,
Once upon a time, there was
a woman namedAhce Brock (she
is still alive) who purchased a
desecrated church in Great
Barrington, Massachusetts in
1964. Alice and her husband, Ray,
were going to live in the church
and Thanksgiving dinners were
held at the church/home
On Thanksgiving, Novem-
ber 25, 1965, 18-year-old Arlo
Guthrie and his friend, 19-year-
old Richard Robbins, had the job
of dumping out the trash. They

traveledto the dump with the gar-
bage and discovered it was
closed. So they decided to dump
it anyway and were caught ille-
gally dumping Alice's garbage.
They were taken to jail and two
days later pleaded guilty before a
blind judge, James E Hannon
The judge could not review the
pictures the arresting officer had
taken, so he fined them $50 and
toldthem topic up their garbage.
Time passed and Guthrie
was called into the draft office nm
New York City's induction center
on Whitehall Street He was sent
to the Group W Bench (where
convicts wait), and then rejected
outright as unfit for military ser-
vice. So at the end of the song
Guthrie says, "walk into a military
office and sing, 'Shrink, you can
get anything you want at Alice's
Restaurant, except for Alice '"
How far out is that, man?
Peace, love, and have a
Happy Thanksgiving.

two things
First, a password will be re-
