Beach School Exceeds Enrollment Requirement


The Pensacola Beach El-
ementary School, Inc. Governing
Board announced at their July 24
meeting that all is ready for the
opening day of school on August 2.
"The good news is that our
budget anticipates an enrollment
of 110 students," Vernon Niven,
finance committee chairman,
said. "We already have 115 stu-
dents signed up."


PensacolaBeachElementary
is a charter school which receives
some state funding per student
and contributions from the com-
munity to meet its financial com-
mitment.
Conna O'Donovan, who
chairs the fund raising commit-
tee told the Board that donations
continue to come in. The
Sandshaker Lounge holds ongo-


ing fundraisers and recently sent
a check for $500. The upcoming
Harry Gowens Memorial sched-
uled for August 18 at Flounder's
is expected to raise a substantial
sum to send to the school.
Jeff Castleberry, principal,
received approval for faculty and
staff positions which have been
open. Joy McLaurine will be the
third grade teacher. Jennifer


What Happens Behind Break Away Walls?


What goes on underneath
Pensacola Beach residences with
break away walls? Apparently, a
lot more than a study committee
anticipated as they discussed their
mission at their first meeting, July
19. The Santa Rosa Island Au-
thority had asked Dan Green, real
estate appraiser, to form a com-
mittee to generate guidelines
for the Authority staff to follow
to produce a regulation govern-
ing how much space should be
enclosed under houses built up
on pilings.
Green told committee mem-
bers that he understood that the
SRIA board's charge was to ask
them to come up with a resolu-
tion on enclosures to limit the
amount of debris released during
a storm.
"I would like to think out of
the box, engineer some creative
ways, so everyone wins," Green
said. "Installing flood vents or
even a netting system to contain
items might be a solution."
Green said that an arbitrary
square foot limit should not be
set. He said lot size should be a


determining factor, and the enclo-
sure should not devalue the prop-
erty.
However, the plot thickened
when Debbie Norton, SRIA En-
vironmental and Developmental
Services Department Manager,
told the committee that the prob-
lem is not confined to debris.
"It includes limiting the
area so the enclosed space will
be less likely to be converted
into illegal living quarters," she
said.
She also provided informa-
tion based on a door to door in-
spection by FEMA which re-
vealed that seventy-five percent
of homes with break away walls,
housed habitable space.
Committee member Rob
Wilson, architect, said he felt that
the problem was not with break
away walls which exist in only
ten percent of the island's resi-
dences.
"This is a compliance and
enforcement issue," Wilson
said. "Residents have been
abusing the privilege of break
away walls."


John Tice, architect, as a
member of the audience sug-
gested that perhaps a substan-
tial fine would be a better de-
terrent for infractions.
After further discussion,
Wilson moved that the com-
mittee report to the SRIA at
their August 2 committee
meetings that the determina-
tion of a specific square foot-
age area does not meet the
objective of reducing debris.
The committee would like to
consider the technical design
and application of break away
walls and additional methods
of reducing post storm debris
on the Island. The motion
passed unanimously although
Phillip Napier, contractor
questioned the need for a new
regulation when it has not
been possible to enforce those
regulations already in place.
Committee members in
addition to Green, Wilson and
Napier are Jim Mallet, con-
sulting engineer, and Scott
Holland, architect.

Reports of a bustling
Beach business summer came
from twenty Chamber of Com-
merce members who met in the
newly renovated conference
room at the Best Western Hotel
Tuesday, July 25.
Lt. Bob Clark, Escambia
County Sheriffs Department,
announced that the department
survived the Blue Angels week-
end, and that they were pretty
happy about that. No official
count of the number of vehicles
on the Beach over the Blues
three-day event were available
according to Richard Butler,
toll facility manager.
"The counters are activated
by cars rolling over them at a
certain speed," he said. "When
the cars came to a standstill
because of the Blue Angels traf-
fic, the counters could not func-
tion properly, but rest assured,
there was a big crowd."
Report from hotel manag-
ers and Realtors at the meeting
reflected the high volume of
summer tourist business.

kids."
The Beach School structure
which was almost destroyed by
Hurricane Ivan will receive ad-
ditional storm protection with the
purchase of Fabric Shield win-
dow coverings and stainless steel
screens for windows not easily
accessible, according to Todd
McCurdy. He also reported that
the landscaping project will be
complete by the opening day of
school.
The Board will meet next on
Monday, August 28 at 6 p.m. at
the Beach School.


Rogan, Portofino, Marta Ray,
Best Western, Christy Dixon,
Springhill Suites, all said they
have enjoyed a wonderful sum-
mer so far.
Sal Pinzone from the
Beach Fishing Pier said the
King Mackerel are running, and
the Pier attracts lots of specta-
tors as well as anglers. He noted
that construction on the Pier
restaurant could begin after
receiving DEP permits which
they expect to get in October.
Sandy Johnston, Chamber
Executive Director announced
that Blues on the Beach would
continue on Tuesday nights, 7
to 9 p.m., through August.
The next meeting of the
Chamber will be Tuesday, Au-
gust 29 at 8:30 at the Comfort
Inn. Business After Hours, a
joint meeting with the Gulf
Breeze Chamber of Commerce
will be Thursday, August 24 at
Bamboo Willie's.
Anyone who wants infor-
mation on Chamber activities
or joining the organization can
call Sandy at 932-1500.


The general election is four
months away, but the candidates
are already out of the gates, and
starting their campaigns. After
pre-filing closed on July 21, Dr.
Tom Campanella, Santa Rosa Is-
land Authority Board member
incumbent, will face challenger,
John J. Johnson. Campanella de-
feated John Pinzino in his first
run for the office and ran unop-
posed for his second term.


Johnson's history on the Beach
goes back to the early years when
he served as a lifeguard. To date,
neither candidate has initiated a
campaign. The position is non-
partisan.
On the other hand, the race
for the District 4 seat on the
Escambia County Commission
has already begun to heat up with
incumbent Tom Banjanin, facing
political newcomer Grover


Robinson, IV Both are Republi-
cans. Andy Kolwalski, no party
affiliation, is the third candidate
in the race. Pensacola Beach is
in District 4.
Running unopposed at the
state level are incumbent Rep.
Dave Murzin, District 2 and Don
Gaetz, of Niceville for the Sen-
ate District 4. Both are Republi-
cans, whose districts include
Pensacola Beach.

Barefoot
Remember when the school
term ended on Memorial Day
and didn't start again until after
Labor Day? Somehow, that all
disappeared when an educator
wizard stepped in to gradually
shorten summer vacation time, so
when Shelley notified the colum-
nists that this is our back to
school issue, I thought that can-
not be. It's still July. But, come
August 2, some of the kids in
Northwest Florida will be back
in their classrooms. Students at
the Pensacola Beach Elementary
School may have all the best of
it. After all, they live year around
in vacationland. They still have
after school hours and weekends
to enjoy the island they all love.
The Beach School has come
a long way since its beginnings
in the A-Frame home of the late
Harry Gowens. Teachers and
staff have made tremendous pro-
gressive strides to constantly im-


on the Beach


prove the school, and to keep it
going in spite of the Escambia
County School Board and hurri-
canes Ivan and Dennis. The
Beach School is a pretty nice
place for children to spend the
day.
The roadway to the point of
excellence the school now enjoys
has not been without bumps in
addition to Escambia County's
attempt to shut the facility down,
and the hurricanes which rav-
aged the building.
Many of those bumps have
been smoothed by the efforts of
an extremely caring community.
Right now, it's reasonable to
guess that the Beach School has
more Partners-In-Education than
any school in the area. This
means that more than one hun-
dred individuals, civic organiza-
tion, and businesses have con-
tributed from $250 to thousands
of dollars to assure the perma-


nence of the now charter school.
The Optimist Club alone has sent
thirty thousand dollars to the
school over the past three years.
How did Partners-in-Education
originate? The first countywide
plan was established as an in-
ducement to get the community
directly involved in school pro-
grams.
The first partner at the
Beach School was the Holiday
Inn. Later on, the Pensacola
Beach Chamber of Commerce
became the school's only part-
ners. The Chamber took this re-
sponsibility seriously. Not only
did they contribute financially,
but they visited the school to in-
troduce themselves to the stu-
dents.
Every spring the Chamber
Board members took punch and
cupcakes to the school and served
all the children as they came
through the gazebo which had


By Jane Waters Cooper


been donated by the Krewe of
Wrecks. That was a warm and
bonding kind of afternoon. I
knew a lot of the kids, and they
wanted to be recognized. They
were always tugging on my
jacket as I poured punch. When
Cullen Stanley, then a second
grader came through the line, he
looked up and said, "Miss Jane,
it's me, Cullen." He wanted his
peers to know that he and I were
on a first name basis. He's
grown now and a member of the
construction crew of Roads, Inc.,
and, yes, we are still on a first
name basis.
After several years of serv-
ing refreshments in the Gazebo,
the lines became too long, and
the procedure became unwieldy.
So, Chamber Board members
were sent in two-person teams to
take the punch and cupcakes to
the classrooms. One year, June
Guerra and I were sent to the


N.


Kindergarten. As we served the
treats, I asked, "How many of you
have had your name in the Beach
newspaper?" Every hand shot up.
And June asked, "How many of
you have eaten at Jubilee?" Ev-
ery hand shot up. We would never
know if those five-year-olds were
telling the truth or were just try-
ing to please us. Either way, the
incident reinforced our goal of
letting the children know the
businesses on the Beach were on
their side.
As a charter school
Pensacola Beach Elementary is
more dependent than ever on
community support.
This year summer vacation
has not only been shortened, but
the time the children will spend
inthe classes at the Beach School
has been lengthened. The kids
just go with the flow. Let's hope
the many Partners continue to do
the same.


Hurricanes Can't Budge The


Original Hippy's Monument


Friends of the late Fred
Bates do not need to worry about
the fate of his monument which
still doggedly sits in the middle
of the Tiki Motel property as
demolition takes place all
around. As the story goes, Fred,
an insurance executive, came to
vacation on Pensacola Beach,
and when it was time to go back
to work, he put on his starched
shirt, knotted his tie, donned his
suit and drove to the top of the
Bob Sikes Bridge. At that point,
he decided he could never leave
Pensacola Beach, so he turned
around, put on his t-shirt, shorts


and sandals, let his hair grow
into a bush, and became known
as "the original hippy."
Fred had been immediately
adopted by the Beach Family,
and was for several years, the
manager of the venerable Tiki
Lounge, until he died of cancer
in 1984.
Jim Reeves, owner of
Gulfside Resorts which included
The Tiki, honored Fred's
memory with the monument
which was inscribed:

Fred Bates
July 19, 1944
April 30, 1984

THE ORIGINAL
HIPPY
Mr. Tiki

Loved By All
Who Knew Him
Dedicated by
Gulfside Resorts

Fred's monument has ridden
out Opal, Ivan, Dennis, and
numbers of lesser storms, and
will remain in its Tiki spot until,
for some reason, it has to be re-


moved. So, not to worry, Fred's
friends. His spirit lives on and no
hurricane is strong enough to
destroy the lasting monument
which perpetuates his memory.

Barbecue Benefit

Plans Simmer For I


Mr. Harry
The Harry Gowens Memo-
rial Barbecue set for 5 p.m. Au-
gust 18 at Flounder's will be a
celebration of the significant role
Harry played in the lives of
Pensacola Beach children. Short
and simple, he pulled enough
strings to get the kids their very
own school on the island.
Harry, who passed away on
January 23, lived long enough to
see the Beach school grow from
humble beginnings into one of the
elite elementaries in the State of
Florida. The Memorial Barbecue
is a fundraiser for the now char-
tered school.
The buffet is just what Harry
would have ordered, featuring bar-
becue pork by his longtime pal,
Wally Pecevich, cole slaw, fish and
cheese grits. Kids will have their
own buffet, chicken fingers,
French fries, macaroni and cheese,
popcorn shrimp, and plenty of
ketchup.
Boogie, Inc. Will contribute


School


the music for the event, and mer-
chandise prizes willbe given away
throughout the party. There will
be a silent auction, face painting,
and a special commemorative t-
shirt.
Porto the Pirate will welcome
children aboard the Portofino
Ferry for a Pirate's Cruise on Santa
Rosa Sound. "The pirate ship
leaves at 6 p.m., so be on time or

What a wonderful summer
it's been, although they seem to
be getting shorter. Or is it just
me? Pappy and I volunteered to
keep our five-year-old grandson,
Jesiah, this summer because we
didn't want him to spend his last
summer before "real" school in
daycare. For some, it's back to
school and for some it's the first
time, and brand new! He's a little
nervous about this and we con-
tinue to reassure him how much
fun it's going to be.
I think he's had a great and
very imaginative summer. He's
explained the difference to us
between a camper/trailer and an
RV For those of you who don't
know this, the RV has a steering
wheel and engine and a camper/
trailer doesn't.
We had about ten square feet
of play space and we've had a tre-
mendous amount of excitement
happening in our camper! We
have had entire cities, made of
legos, destroyed by Godzilla over
and over. We have experienced
massive and numerous pirate at-
tacks while sailing the high seas.
And then, they went to the Pepsi
400 Nascar race, while I kept
Sissy all weekend. So, we have
also had ten-thousand races take
place inside this tiny space.
Of course, we didn't spend
all of our time inside. After all
we live in Paradise. So, there
were also hours of playing on the
beach, catching fish in nets, and
shelling on the Gulf front. We
are truly thankful to God and are
looking forward to our grandchil-
dren attending our wonderful
Beach School. All this was ac-
complished while continuing to
work on re-building our house.
Some people have said to me that
they can't believe I'm not crazy!
I always reply that I'm not, which
leads me to believe that I may,


ieas, porribge
&
i bry martini


y katbi lewis

indeed, be insane. You know that
crazy people do not know that
they are crazy... I always manage
to spend some "down-time" with
my girls, and believe me, that
helps! You all know by now, that
my hang-out is Queen Shugah,
Paulette's, house. It's because we
love the company, the view, the
music, the inexpensive cock-
tails, you never know who will
drop by, and there's always some
awesome food around! Paulette
is a fabulous cook, besides being
an extraordinary friend, and has
finally agreed to share a recipe
with us. I have eaten this many
times and it's a "slap your mama"
recipe. I hope you love it as much
as I do. So, Queen Shugah, this
one's for you... Let's cook.

BREATHE EASIER
According to recent research, red wines
may provide as much health benefit to
the lungs as they are known to give the
heart. It seems that red wine contains a
naturally occurring compound known as
resveratrol that reduces the amount of a
harmful chemical in the lungs that
causes chronic bronchitis and emphy-
sema. These illnesses, known collec-
tively as chronic obstructive pulmonary
disease, are responsible for the deaths
of 2.9 million people worldwide annually.
While there is probably not a sufficient
amount of resveratrol in a glass of red
wine to make a real impact on chronic
sufferers of these diseases, drinking red
wine in moderation as part of a healthy,
balanced diet can reduce lung
inflammation.

HINT: Resveratrol is already thought to
be responsible for low rates of heart dis-
ease in France, where red wine is a major
component of the diet.

Another reason to enjoy red wine! Red
wines seems to benefit both the lungs
and the heart, but moderation is the best
policy. At BEACH WINES & LIQUORS,
INC., we have years of experience, and
would be happy to share this knowledge
with you. Come see us and browse out
selection of red wine. We guarantee your
satisfaction. Questions? 850-932-8850.

Cross in the Sand
By
Dr. Chuck Randle
Pastor
Pensacola Beach Community Church


With the new school year
underway, those words about
"School Days" keep going
through my mind: "School
days, school days, Dear old
golden rule days. 'Readin' and
'ritin' and arithmetic Taught to
the tune of a hick'ry stick.You
were my queen in calico, I was
your bashful barefoot beau,
And you wrote on my slate, 'I
love you, Joe,' When we were
a couple of kids. "
Some may opt for those
"good old school days," when
everything seemed so much
simpler and safer than now.
Many remember those days as
the times when "if you got a
whipping at school, you also
got one when you got home;"
teachers drove newer cars than
the students; the multiplication
tables were memorized; a sack
lunch was a much better option
than nothing; more time was
spent in study hall and less
homework was assigned; teach-
ers could give their students a
hug without fear; completing
the eighth grade was a monu-
mental goal; illegal drugs were
not in the mainstream; pornog-
raphy consisted of tiny booklets
passed around from student to
student until the pages were
worn thin; plus many other dif-
ferences.
Many of the people who
lived during those days have
grown up to become the lead-
ers of our communities. The
"good old school days" did not


have a negative effect.
Students today, however,
have many more benefits than
were available back then.
Growing up also has many
more dangers than in those
days. Television, computers
and the Internet have made it
possible for our students to see
and hear about the news as it
happens, even continents away.
We know more about our world
today than ever before. Oppor-
tunities are greater than ever
before. Teachers are able to
make a difference in the lives
of their children not only
through improved techniques
and better equipment, but also
by the respect and appreciation
they show.
I wish for our students and
teachers a wonderful year of
experiences that are both chal-
lenging and enjoyable. In the
future, our students will refer
to these years as "School days,
school days ...."

Here is some of the casual
input from surfers who stopped
in and left a message for me at
www.espocreative.com
Freddy -
What with the girls, boys,
longboarders, shortboarders,
boogey boarders, kayaks, surf
skis, grommets, kooks,
gremmies, hotdoggers,
kahunas, wahines, haoles,
satanists, christians,waders,
swimmers, drowners, ling fish-
erman, jet ski patrols, life-
guards, bikinis, doggers,
baggies, thongs; I'd say it's just
about right. San Onofre on the
beach, trestles in the lineup,
what a blast surfing is!
dos animos
* * *
Hi Freddy,
Let me start by saying
that I haven't really been out to
surf since they finished the
beach renourishment project.
There were a lot of times I
wanted to go out,but the web
cams weren't really showing
any really good waves. I'm sure
I missed alot of good
days,because as we all know,
you gotta be there at the right
time!
Today, I went out, because
I couldn't take it anymore!


I'm a surfer! Darn it! It's
in my blood for good, so I went
out.
I drove from one end of the
beach, east, then back to the
cross.....and checked all "the
spots" in between. They all
looked the same,except for the
Cross, which was breaking fur-
ther out, with a moderate
crowd.
Eleventh looked pretty
good,so I went there
instead,and I checked the Pier
along the way. It's by far the
best, but since I'm outta shape,
I went on to 11th. I watched the
Pier for about 35 minutes and
didn't see one cut-off or drop-
in.
You know, there's no little
places you can go anymore to
be with friends,or just have a
quick surf after work. It's be-
come a major hassle, just to
get out there, then find legal
parking, and a break that's not
closing out. Our Beach is gone,
well, as I remember it.
But I still think all of us
should give you congrats for
keeping this website free and
active,because your pics,and
your site still keep me wanting
to hit the water!

My Future

As An

Educator
by
Pete Della Ratta
When I first started to fish
forbass and bluegills in the lakes
around my house I couldn't ever
have imagined it would lead me
into the path I am currently on.
I have enjoyed fishing and boat-
ing ever since I can remember. I
would watch fishing shows and
listen when others would talk
about what they caught that day
on the boat and wished it was me
telling the story. Now I have a
chance to tell my story and teach
others what I know and I am con-
stantly learning about boating
and fishing.
Little did I know that after I
received a grant in 2005-2006
from the Future Fisherman Foun-
dation to establish a boating and
fishing program at Woodlawn
Beach Middle School, that my
students' lives, as well as my
own, were going to change for
the better. I found out about the
grant from Steve, a friend and
fishing buddy of mine. With
his help, a proposal was sent
in and it was accepted with
open arms. I never thought I
would get it. He had experience
in grant writing while I had the
basic knowledge in boating and
fishing. I was getting more
confident as the submitted
grant was sent near the pro-
posed deadline. Long story
short; 33 other Physical Edu-
cation teachers and I were
granted money from the Future
Fisherman Foundation to buy
boating and fishing gear as
long as it was used in a school
curriculum. All the adminis-
tration and teachers were ex-
cited about the opportunity to
bring boating and fishing into
all the interdisciplinary sub-
jects such as Math, English,
Science, Social Studies, Art,
Chorus, Health and Physical
Education. Every teacher con-
tributed more than I expected
and in the end we took 300 sev-
enth graders on a boating and
fishing excursion which taught
the students about Seagrass
Awareness, Water Quality,
Knot Tying, Casting Tech-
niques, Fishing with real bait,
along with fish and habitat
identification.
I was invited to present the


techniques I used to incorpo-
rate my proposal into our
school curriculum to all forty-
four teachers who received the
grant this year at the 2006-
2007 National Boating and
Fishing Initiative Conference
in Traverse City, Michigan.
I thought let me get this
straight: all expenses paid
week long trip to Lake Michi-
gan to learn more about
kayaking, canoeing, fly fish-
ing, how to tie different fly pat-
terns, free room and board, and
all I have to do is talk about
boating and fishing. I'm all
in!!
It has been a snowball ef-
fect ever since. I have met
some of the most generous,
kind hearted and knowledge-
able people associated with the
boating and fishing industry, as
well as others like me, who just
love to be on the water whether
it is boating, fishing, orjust re-
laxing to the sound of the
waves.
After the conference I
again was asked to present
what Woodlawn Beach has
accomplished to everyone who
will attend the 2007 AAHPERD
National Convention and Expo-
sition which is the only event of
its kind combining a trade fo-
rum of over 250 product and ser-
vice providers, organizations and
manufacturers and over 5,000
health and physical activity pro-
fessionals. This will be a great
chance to spread information on
how a healthy lifestyle can be
encouraged and instilled into the
youth of today through boating
and fishing.
I want to thank everyone
who volunteered, donated items
for the raffle drawing, and gave
their insights which made all of
this possible. I look forward to
furthering our program and
working with anyone who is
willing to help make our pro-
gram sustainable for years to
come.
I will strive to use all of the
information I gathered in order
to represent Woodlawn Beach
Middle School and our local
communities to the best of my
ability.

Prudent Pruning Produces Healthy Palms


Palms are popular on the
Beach. They can be expensive
additions to the landscape but
with proper care, palms can live
long, healthy lives. Correct prun-
ing is a key component to caring
for your palms properly. Horti-
culture Agent Theresa Friday,
gives these tips:
Like trees, palms manufac-
ture their food through their
leaves.
Many palms maintain a set
number of live fronds. The older
palm fronds will eventually turn
yellow and die and will be re-
placed by new ones at the top of
the plant. These dead fronds are
not detrimental to the health of
the tree. A rule of thumb is to
remove fronds that are more than
half chlorotic, or yellow. Do not
remove green fronds or the palm


could become stressed.
Another recommended
pruning practice is to remove the
flower or fruit clusters. This
eliminates the need for the palm
to expend energy in developing
its fruit.
One look around local land-
scapes and you'll see the tendency
is to over-prune palms. One
commonplace practice is to re-
move all but the top tier of fronds.
In coastal areas, this is called
"hurricane" pruning.
In reality, established palms
need no protection from high
winds. Their flexible fronds and
excellent wind resistance makes
them nearly storm-proof.
Finally, it's very important
that the trunks of palms not be
injured. Palms should never be
climbed using spiked or cleated

climbing shoes. Palm trunks
should never be nicked by
lawnmowers or string trimmers.
Any puncture or wound on the
trunk allows the entry of patho-
gens that can kill a palm.

By Danah & Gwen Gibson
The real truth to growing long hair


Personally, I have always
worn my hair on the long side,
except in grade school, when my
mom cut our hair in pixies with
her pinking shears very stylish.
I have never tried any "fast hair
growth methods. But I have
learned a few good tips in my
lifetime that I can share withyou.
#1: If it sounds too good to
be true, it is. I think the number
one reason that hair consumers
go through pain and suffering
with their tresses is because they
believe claims and promises that
just cannot be true! Anyone who
has left a salon with a horrible
hair color, fried ends from a perm
or straightener that has lost way
too many inches of precious
growth knows that it is easy to
buy into promises of great
texture,color and a hot style that
won't require a lot of hair loss.
Which leads me to #2:
Remember, it's your hair!
You have to wear it every day!
Consider any promises carefully
and ask questions. I will recom-
mend certain restructuring prod-
ucts that I have seen work, but
only if you need them.
#3: Growing hair takes a
commitment. Hair, on the aver-
age, will grow six to eight inches
per year. If your hair is now chin-
length and you want it to be to
your ribs- take a ruler and mea-
sure the space between. For in-
stance, if you need seven inches
to reach your bustline, plan on
growing your locks for a year or
so (or if you are impatient, just
tightenyourbra straps!) Just kid-
ding.
What you can do is cut down
on the hot tool use, (flat irons,
blow dryers, curling irons), cut
out products containing a lot of
alcohol. Proper nutrition, lots of
water, and taking a good multi-
vitamin never hurt!
When you finally do get to
your desired length, and I can-
not stress these facts enough, get
a trim at least every two months.
Just an eighth of an inch, so the
ends of your hair will not split
and the split will not go all the
way up your hair shaft. You have
to cut even more off if that hap-
pens.
After shampooing, use a
wide tooth comb, working your


way from the bottom up, your
hair is in its most fragile state
when its wet, this really helps
with breakage.
Use these tips and call the
Hair Hotline for more at 932-
4323. Here's to good health and
great hair.

TONGUE


There is a saying about a
person's age: 60 is the new 40.
Well if that is true, then the
Fourth of July has become the
new Labor Day when you talk
about kids returning to school.
My husband and I often remi-
nisce about how "back in the
day" school started on the Tues-
day after Labor Day and then
summer break began with the
Memorial Day weekend. To our
son, who has attended schools in
three different states and now at-
tends a year around school, those
holidays are just mere three day
weekends. Nothing to get too
excited about, just a small break
in the federally mandated 180
days of educational instruction
that now spills over into June,
July and August.
Maryland blamed snow and
ice days for encroaching onto
summer vacation. California
started early to pad for the wild-
fires and earthquakes. North
Carolina just takes away from
Thanksgiving and Christmas
holiday time should a hurricane
make its presence known and the
schools have to be used as shel-
ters. When your child attends a
year around school, it's hard to
take away any more summer days
when they only get a few weeks
off to begin with. Having a child
enrolled in year around school is
like living with someone who
works offshore it's basically 9
weeks on, 3 weeks off.
Furthermore, I feel sorry for
today's kindergartners. Not only
is there summer cut short, but
their mandated curriculum is
very academically challenging
and I believe sometimes over-
whelming for those who are not
fully supported at home. Back in
the late 60's, kindergarten was
cool. I went for half a day, learned
my letters, numbers, colors and
how to write "Elizabeth Waters."
I can actually remember with
great clarity the shoe tying les-
son, plus hours of stringing neck-
laces made out of colored maca-
roni. Snack was the highlight
and where I learned to bite off
the animal cracker's head and
ask "Who turned out the lights?"
I was sent home by noon at which
time I made scrambled eggs and
parsley everyday for lunch and
talked incessantly to my mother
about Mrs. Greenwell, the best

teacher ever. I guess for me, kin-
dergarten has just progressively
gone downhill since Mrs.
Greenwell announced in the
spring of 1970 that she was leav-
ing and moving to Alaska with
her husband who was in the Air
Force at that time. I ended up
with a substitute for the remain-
ing few months and all I can say
is she was no Mrs. Greenwell.
Well, now I am preparing to
be that long-term substitute. I
was very excited when I was
asked to fill in while a teacher
goes out on maternity leave --
right up and to the point when I
was handed the North Carolina
State standards. No mention of
shoe tying lessons or making
necklaces from macaroni. Group
snack and the sharing of food is
prohibited due to food allergies.
There is no napping and class
time is from 7:55 a.m. until 2:45
p.m. The kids have to be able to
read and take tests on a computer.
They have to know passwords
and codes. It's not enough to
know the days of the week and
the months, they have to be able
to compute calendar math. The
academic requirements are end-
less and grueling, and yet there
is little focus on socialization
skills. Now I know why kids drop
out of school, they are still try-
ing to catch up from the mental
exhaustion of kindergarten.
Sometimes less is more, but try
telling that to the local, state and
federal boards of education.
Who knows, maybe this
year's kindergartners will be
grow up to be tomorrow's edu-
cation specialists and will be the
ones to solve all what ails both
public and private education in
this country. Even better, maybe
one of them will invent a magic
potion that will make those of us
who will then be in our 70s feel,
look and act half our age. Until
next time...
Luv, Lizzard

of storm-related debris and haz-
ardous trees throughout the area.
Because of hazardous trees, the
area north of Fort Pickens Road
between the Battery Worth park-

Do you ever wonder what
the United States would be like
in 2006, if the federal tax incen-
tives for solar energy systems had
not been eliminated in 1985?
Have you ever thought about
solar energy for your home? Did
you know that solar energy used
to heat water can reduce your
electric bill by as much as one
third?
Just like hybrid cars that
run on both gas and batteries;
homes too can transform to a
hybrid status. Let's take a quick
and very basic look at the two
common types of solar water
heating systems: active and
passive.
An active solar water heat-
ing system employs pumps and
controllers to regulate and cir-
culate water. The water or an
intermediate fluid is heated by

5:30 at the South Santa Rosa
Recreation Center, 800 Shoreline

For decades we have lived
the path of external technology
where solutions have been engi-
neered "out there," separate from
our bodies. Alice will discuss a


solar collectors installed on
your home's roof or other ap-
propriate area. This is then
pumped to a storage tank for
use. A passive solar water heat-
ing system uses the density dif-
ference of the hot water to cir-
culate water through a solar
collector to the storage tank .
There is a trade-off though.
The active system is more effi-
cient and the passive system is
cheaper. The active system also
requires a small amount of elec-
tricity to operate the pump. Both
systems can be professionally in-
stalled for around $4000. De-
pending upon your individual
water use, many people find they
can recoup their investment
within a four to seven year pe-
riod.
Now why wouldn't the gov-
ernment want you to do that?
