Barefoot on the Beach


4606.


By Jane Waters Cooper 16


Every year about this time I get
nostalgic yearning for a long gone
beach custom which I thought was
timeless. I thought it would never
end. It was a tribal ritual, belonging
only to the Beach Family, never to
be changed in any way. It was the
Beach Bum of the Year Awards, a
red carpet event, by invitation only.
It was always held in some public
bistro where any outsiders lingering
there were quickly hustled away. I
never knew quite how this was ac-
complished, but I could guess it was
something like, "Move along, Dude.
We're about to eat our Saturday night
Snake dinner."
The Beach Family jumped
over Labor Day, looking forward to
the next weekend. The tourists and
tourist flies were gone. Excitement
was in the air.
Even as the Council of Winos
was meeting to evaluate the "poor
as church mice" claims of the can-
didates, there were guessing parties
in progress all over the Beach. Who
would get the signal honor? Who
would be King Bum? There were
so many possibilities, but only one
would wear the crown.
Amid solemn pomp and circum-
stance and the clinking of long necks,
Chuck Steele, the Chief Wino, would
tell us who our patron saint would
be for the coming year. We would
find out who lived among us with no
visible means of support. It all came
together as the treasured highlight
of the Beach family's social season.
About the Pomp and Circum-
stance. Chuck, added quirky events
in an effort to drag the coronation
out as long as possible. The Beach
Bums stage was anywhere, fitting
for the Kings of Nothing, a pool table


at Dirty Joe's, the sand beachbehind
the Tiki Lounge, and later Dirty Joe's
East which had a sound system. The
sound system was a nice upgrade,
but it really didn't make much differ-
ence because the audience was busy
clinking long necks and guessing out
loud who the Bum would be. They
hadn't really come to the ten p.m.
ceremony to hear the results of the
other warm up awards which were
close to Chuck's heart.
There was the Biggest Sandspur
Contest. Many folks brought their
entries in the plastic sandwich bags
as specified in the rules. Chuck mea-
sured and weighed each entry with
his minute scientific instruments. He
did all this in spite of the knowledge
that Sandy Watkins planted and
tended a garden of sandspurs all year
long. She was always the winner.
Always. She knew she deserved the
honor. Who else was growing giant
sandspurs in their yards?
Chuck also announced the name
of the Statesman of the Year. A per-
son he gleaned out of a bunch of
politicians nationwide who couldn't
even spell statesman.
He drew a round of mild ap-
plause when he announced the
restaurant which won the Haute
Cuisine award for providing the
worst gastronomical experience.
Then, there was the Scavenger
Hunt which went on for a week
leading up to the Awards Night.
Teams would pick up their lists at
Bobby D's which were about the
same every year. A live skink and
a live tourist were always included.
The SOB Team could never bring
itself to pick up a live skink but
they always found a willing (male)
tourist to go with them to the count


down. Team SOB usually won, but
it was never etched in stone the way
the Sandspur Contest was.
Chuck was a Master of Sus-
pense. One time, Alice Aman
Ramsey, an original member of the
Beach family, came down from her
house in Alabama and read a poem
which seemed to stretch the length
of Via de Luna.
The Rookie Beach Bum of the
Year was announced just prior to the
Big Beach Bum. The Rookie was
usually young and well qualified by
virtue of his unemployment status.
He might later become the Beach
Bum of the Year or he might move
to New York City and become rich.
Finally, Chuck stepped to the
table and picked up the royal t-shirt
and the roving trophy. The selected
Bum would get to keep his t-shirt,
but the trophy remained in his care
for only one year. The trophy was a
vintage two foot piece of driftwood,
varnished and polished. Down in the
corner the Council of Winos had
added a small plastic elfin doll. It
was a symbol of some kind, I think.


Raw
Oysters

Fresh
Gulf
Seafood


The bums were a roster of no-
torious characters, dating from the
first awards in the seventies until the
last in 2004.
The greatest task ever per-
formed by the Council of Winos
was when they presented the Beach
Bum of the Millennium in 2000. His
selection had to be obvious to every-
one. Pure, simple and unchallenged.
Harry Gowens, of course. That same
Harry owned several beach houses
(the space ship and two A frames),
The Junkyard Restaurant, the Real
Acme Junkyard in town, and about
fifty automobiles, give or take a few.
But, in Harry's own testimony,
in 2000, all he had was his faded
pair of blue jeans and a rope belt to
hold them up, t-shirts, and scuffed
topsiders. He did live in one of his
A frames, but that was acceptable.
He also helped Wally Pecevich in
his demolition business for no pay.
I can remember when it was not
politically correct to say "job" or
"work" while in Harry's presence.
When the Beach Bum Awards
faded away, the Council of Winos

locked the doors to their meeting
hall and went off to smoke pork
butts. Chuck, the steady former
Marine Corps pilot, moved to
Mexico Beach. It all ended without
ceremony, the way it had started.
No weeping, wailing, and gnashing
of teeth.
Oh, then silly me, why am I so
sad? Well, I was the Beach Bum of
the Year in 1995, along with other
diva Bums, Renee Mack, 2004; Nini
Baird, 1980, and Judy L'Oignon,
Beach Bum of the Century. Being
the Beach Bum of the Year changed
me. It humbled me. I thought a lot
about it at the time and have ever
since. Now, I know life's greatest
blessing is the love of family and
friends. I am grateful to know who
I was then, who I am now, and for
what I have.
Renee has possession of the
antique trophy. It has survived Opal
at my house, Ivan and Dennis at
Renee's house.
"You know that trophy led a
charmed life," Chuck said.
"Haven't we all," I replied.

Michelle and Daphne should
be very proud of their mama Diane
Tyson, who emailed the first cor-
rect answer to the last trivia. Since
it was a back-to-school issue, the
Trivia Master was trying to find
out if anyone could remember the
name of the very first kindergarten
teacher at the Beach School. Diane
Tyson knew it was Connie Sadler.
She is the proud owner of a new
t-shirt.
The Beach School opened in
1977 with a lot of nudging in the
right places by Harry Gowens.
Michelle and Daphne were among
Connie Sadler's first kindergart-
ners. They are now both married
and have families of their own. But
they still have fond memories of
the years they spent in the Beach
School.
Mike Willett's mom probably
had something to do with his cor-
rect answer. Glenda Willett was
the Teacher-in-Charge when the


school first opened. Mike, the
beach poet, wrote "Connie Sadler
was her name when she taught kin-
dergarten. She is now, I believe,
Connie Bennett. Peace. MW."
Kim Schmidt, a ferocious
competitor, was the runner up
with the correct answer which she
found online. Is Kim trying for a
seat at the Roundtable?
Then, answers always come
to tickle the Trivia Master's funny
bone. (Did you know the Funny
Bone is behind the elbow?)
Chuck Steele wrote, "It was
Papa Joe in the old Driftwood
Schoolhouse in the Sugar Bowl. I
remember it well."
Did Chuck get his answer
from his brilliant neighbor, Capt.
Verde?
The Trivia Master just has to
mention Joanne Brooks, Queen of
Wrong Answers.
"This one is too hard," she
wrote. "Nan Harper is my wild


guess and probably only applies
to children who spoke Spanish."
(Nan was the High School Spanish
teacher in Gulf Breeze.)
The Trivia Master awards
Joanne and Chuck, Disappearing
Trophies for adding humor to
this column's serious pursuit of
knowledge.
It's Labor Day weekend and
the Trivia Master says if you can
answer the following question
correctly, before any other trivia
player, you will get the shirt.
"What is the laziest country of
all the developed nations?"
Better hurry on this one.
The rules are the same. Email
your answer with "trivia" in the
subject line to iLidtliiics a bcllI-
south.net. Be sure to include your
name and phone number withyour
answer. The first emailer with the
correct answer wins a coveted
Island Times shirt.
The deadline is September 14.

CARTED OFF
The low speed limit on Island
avenues lends itself to electric ve-
hicles, so more and more are show-
ing up on the Beach. Speaking of
showing up, Kathi Lewis noticed
that Chuck Brower (he used to be
Offshore, now he's Onshore Chuck)
came to the Splash Party at Paradise
in his golf cart. His cool paint job
on "Baby" is a beach scene that
includes the famous iconic Beach
Ball. He's not finished yet and plans
to add the fish sign at a later date.
G. Cole will have some competition
for the Best Beach Buggy contest.
WEDDING BELLS
Sonny Campbell and Beverly
Boswell will be married in a private

OLD CROWS
When Tracy McDonald peered
out of his window on August 25
it looked like a scene from Hitch-
cock's movie The Birds. His friends
had his yard decorated with black
crows to celebrate his sixtieth
birthday.
LOOK UP
Tom Fitzgerald has someone he


really looks up to his son Thomas
- who sprang up to over six feet tall
this summer. Thomas is an honor
student in tenth grade at GulfBreeze
High School and is officially taller
than his dad.
LILA'S BEAU
For twenty years Jim Cox has
been Lila's beau, so they took a
trip to the Beau Rivage to celebrate
their August 23 anniversary. Joining
them were DJ and Carl Zemenick
who chalked up 19 years of mar-
riage the next day. The Beach
couples were wowed at the Balagan
Show.
AYE AYE QUEENIE
Capt JR of Blue Marlin Water
Taxi was a bit nervous during the
bad weather on August 21. The
salty boat captain had been tasked
with delivering the Nereids royalty
to the pier at the Paradise Bar. They
arrived safely and mostly dry thanks
to his nautical knowledge.
BIG WIN
Eileen Cywaniowicz, a long-
time Beach Visitor's Center volun-
teer, says her daughter has a lucky
streak a mile wide. On a recent
shopping trip to Atmore the lucky
lady tried a few slot machines at
Wind Creek and came home with a
$50,000 win. Eileen is hoping some
of that luck will rub off on her.


Aloha Kay and Pete Amberson returned to the Beach after
celebrating their forty-seventh wedding anniversary in Hawaii where
they attended luaus and visited Pearl Harbor. Kay's brother Randy
and wife Linda, who lived in Hawaii for six years, expertly showed
them around the islands.

Party House Fined $500 For Breaking Rules


The Santa Rosa Island Author-
ity made it crystal clear to those
who rent large houses on Ariola
Drive for the purpose of throw-
ing large receptions and parties
will have to abide by the rules. A
violation of the permitting rules
appeared on the agenda at the
August 25 Committee meetings
and the property was fined $500
as an after-the-fact penalty for not
having a large event permit. In ad-
dition, the SRIA raised the security
deposit for 902 Ariola to $500.
The more stringent rental rules are
designed to keep the problems of
noise, parking, traffic and trash to a
minimum. Nearby neighbors have
been seeking relief by appearing at
Authority meetings over a period of
months, and supplied photos to the
Board of the recent events.
Concerts and the problems
they generate were high on the
SRIA's list of priorities.
Scott Wheatley of the Five
Flags Tourism Group which is
promoting DeLuna Fest on Casino
Beach October 15 and 16, received
Board approval to include a third


In the August 24 edition of
Island Times, Barefoot on the
Beach chronicled the work of DJ
Zemenick and Melanie Waite who
are turtle watchers. Each evening
they would patrol the beach to
identify new sea turtle nests. In an
effort to protect the hatchlings, the
nests were being relocated to other
beaches.
After nearly two months of
work to translocate sea turtle nests
on Florida's Northwest coast, the
unprecedented operation was sus-
pended in mid-August as surveys
found healthy, unoiled Sargassum
available to hatchlings entering the
Gulf. This type of seaweed is the
main habitat for hatchlings.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC),
working with partners from the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service decided
sea turtle nests will remain to hatch
naturally on Florida's Panhandle
beaches. Biologists determined


day of concerts on Sunday, Oct.
17, which would be free and the
headliner would be Willie Nelson.
Bob West, SRIA Safety Direc-
tor, set the tone for the discussion
which followed concerning night
time safety at the concert.
"There is no way I can save
swimmers in the Gulf of Mexico
after dark," West said.
In an effort to close the beach
to swimmers during the concert,
Wheatley suggested they would
seek an air show sponsor, so the
Gulf waters would be closed by air
show permitting authorities.
"I think this fits and is a fun
way to separate us from other
events," Wheatley said. "We would
like to post the double red flag
which would close the Gulf to
swimmers during the entire three-
day event."
Board members were not sure
who had the authority to block the
swimmers away.
Board member Fred Gant said,
"Everyone may not appreciate be-
ing closed off from going into the
water. The duration and closing


that the risks to hatchlings emerging
from beaches and entering waters
off Florida's Northwest Gulf coast
have diminished significantly under
current conditions. The nest trans-
locations began in June to protect
sea turtle hatchlings from potential
impacts from the BP oil spill in the
Gulf of Mexico.
"This is the very best possible
news," said FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto. "The translocation of these
nests was a last resort to make sure
the hatchlings had a fighting chance
of survival, so we are pleased to
announce a suspension of the pro-
gram."
After leaving the beach, hatch-
lings head offshore and inhabit areas
where surface waters converge and
are characterized by lines of float-
ing material, especially Sargassum.
Post-hatchlings within this habitat
are observed to be low-energy
float-and-wait foragers that feed on
a wide variety of floating items at


of the beach, I can't get my arms
around."
Board member Dave Pavlock's
motion for the SRIA to approve the
requests and forward them to the
County to approve and give input
passed by a vote of five to one with
Gant dissenting.
Robert Rinke, Levin and Rinke
Realty, appeared again to discuss
his request for $500,000 to be
allocated for a stage, so concerts
could be brought to the Beach. He
explained how his previous BP
funding granted through the Tourist
Development Council had finally
gone to DeLuna Fest.
"The goal was to bring music
to the Beach and that has been ac-
complished," Rinke said.
But he has in no way given
up on his stage and the ongoing
concerts he had in mind.
"We would like to see a con-
cert series of a non-profit nature,"
Rinke said. "If you start now there
could be something powerful for
the spring."
The free concerts would be
located on the stage on the Margari-


or just below the water's surface.
Cindy Dohner, the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service's Southeast
Regional Director added, "Our
partners played a vital role in
executing this translocation work
from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
and the Kennedy Space Center to
FedEx, NOAA, the National Fish
and Wildlife Foundation, and the ex-
isting network of local volunteers."
In Florida, 262 nests were ex-
cavated along the Northwest coast.
The eggs were carefully placed in
specially prepared foam coolers and
driven by FedEx Custom Critical
trucks to Kennedy Space Center on
Florida's east coast.

taville property. The Board passed
a motion to direct staff to gather
more information about an island
concert series in the Spring and to
refer this item back to the Special
Projects committee.
The Island Authority members
had shown major concern about the
quality of the water now that the
raging oil well has been capped
and subdued. In fact, the Board
has included a line item in its cur-
rent budget of $40,000 to partner
with University of West Florida
in the study of Beach and water
conditions.
Dr. Richard Snyder of UWF
gave a comprehensive report of the
current safety of the water.
"UWF was funded to sample
and test oil and map where it is,"
said Snyder. "This will go on for an
entire year. We were taking water
twice per week with the results the
next day. We have found very little
oil. The dispersed oil has not come
here."
Dr. Snyder did point out they
are doing a number of studies and
testing over the long term.
"We are worried about the
fisheries, marshlands, ecosystems,
and environmental degradation.
This will impact and cascade into
the future," he said.
Committees addressed the fol-
lowing items:


> Master Plan: Awaiting the hir-
ing of an engineering firm to study
and review conceptual plan. Final
answer is several months away.
> Steering Committee: Keep it
together until a decision is made on
the Master Plan.
> Parking on Ft. Pickens Road:
North side the County will decide
on shoulder parking. South side a
plan is in the works for a 29 unit
parking lot.
> Alvin's Island: Request to
install 12 lighted window boxes was
referred to the Full Board to further
consider and review turtle lighting
compliance.
> Cabana Bar Bandstand: At
the site of the former Comfort Inn.
South Harbour neighbors complain.
Goes to the Full Board.
> Walkover: Second story
pedestrian bridge to connect the
Hilton and the Holiday Inn which
is still under construction. A public
beach access runs under the bridge
and will not be impeded. Request
granted.
> RV Park: Holiday Holdings

Most of the time being late is
considered a flaw. Sometimes it can
be a good thing. Since I have yet to
completely dry out since the Splash
Party, I mixed up the newspaper
deadline in my soggy brain matter. I
thought it was the Tuesday after the
Splash Party (which was actually
our publication date), but a message
from my Editor reminded me of an
"early" deadline on Saturday. Now
it's Sunday, August 29 and I'm of-
ficially late. What's the point?
Well for one that's just how my
week started. For another, I saw a
double rainbow this evening as the
sun set. Okay, so the sun actually
only showed up at sunset but hey,
I'll take what I can get. I always
love the sunsets and even a single
rainbow; but a double? You really
don't see this often and my neigh-
bor, Tony Scott said it was the first
he'd ever seen. Just goes to prove,
you can't have a rainbow without
the rain.
But you can take a monsoon
and turn it into a "Splash Party" if
you play with the Mystic Krewe


of Nereids. Islanders and visitors
both proved their ability to adapt,
survive and have fun while being
completely drenched for hours as
our cups "ranneth over." Although
it was a smaller crowd because of
the torrential downpour we still
raffled over 80 prizes in just three
hours. Betcha wish you'd braved
the monsoon now, huh? I hope so
because all these prizes were a very
earnest attempt to help bring patrons
to local businesses.
Little did we know when we
arranged for Queen Courtney and
King Jim Winstead to arrive by
boat at the Paradise dock what a
royal affair it would be; but Capt. JR
fulfilled our request and our royalty
arrived in style in the Blue Marlin
Water Taxi. Capt. JR even provided
refreshments aboard. After he part-
nered with me in a water gun battle,
I thought we'd all need a boat just
to get home.
Mary Drees attended well
prepared in a rain poncho that she
never removed even under the tent!

laughing when he arrived dressed
as a "BP Official" costumed in the
biggest black trash bag I've ever
seen. He was a volunteer in the
dunking tank and I had the pleasure
(and biggest surprise of the evening)
of dunking him on my first throw.
Oh it was definitely a fluke; I knew
that even as it happened. But that
didn't make it any less fun! I was
really hamming it up and trash talk-
ing because I know I can't throw, so
I was more surprised than anyone
(even Morrie)!
Marilyn LeNormand was the
Mermaid in charge of the dunking
tank and she did a wonderful job.
But then, who can refuse our pre-
cious little Marilyn? Not Chuck
(Stained) Steele for sure. He and
Lynn Cieutat traveled over from
Mexico Beach just for the honor of
being a "dunkee." Marilyn even
had Gary Cole golf carted down.
I dunked him, too, but only with
a little assistance from friend Kim
Schmitz.
My daughter Mel also volun-
teered in the dunking tank and was
dunked twice by her nine-year-old
son Jesiah.
All of the other games had to
be cancelled because of the rain
except the water gun fight which
raged continually all afternoon and
into the evening.
Mermaid Peggy Henshall and
husband George of Cajun Stitchery
provided the official "Splash Party"
hats and caps for sale. If you forgot
to get one of these, contact the near-
est Mermaid.
None of this could be ac-
complished without a "little help

I would like to thank the beach
community for their warm welcome
over this past year. For those who
do not know, my name is Fr. Paul
Lambert, a Roman Catholic priest
assigned to St. Ann's Catholic Par-
ish which includes St. Ann Catholic
Church in Gulf Breeze and Our
Lady of the Assumption Mission
on Pensacola Beach. Many of you
know the pastor of St. Ann Catholic
Parish, Msgr. Luke Hunt.
I have been given a wonderful
opportunity to learn from him and
to be formed by this great com-
munity of Pensacola Beach. I have
been going to the beach since I was
diapers. My Dad had, and still does
have, a wonderful love of the beach.


I spent the first 12 years of my life
growing up in central Long Island
on the north shore. Just about every
family outing included the beach.
When we moved to Palm
Harbor, Florida nothing changed.
The beach was our most fond
destination.
It became even more so when
we moved into Island Estates,
which is a community similar to
Gulf Breeze in that it was an island
just before getting to the barrier
island, although Gulf Breeze is
actually on a peninsula.
It was just fitting that after my
college and seminary education
that I would find myself serving a
beach community. I have found that


there is something really special
and spiritual about living near
the water. It reminds of the times
Jesus would preach near the shore
during his years of ministry. Of
how he would take a boat out into
the water so that everyone could
hear him as his voice echoed off
the water.
The Gulf of Mexico with its
vastness reminds me of the awe-
some power and reach that God
has in our lives.
The next time you find yourself
on the beach, if you are not there
already, take some time in silence to
take in the beauty of God's creation.
Let us thank God for what he has
given us, a glimpse of Heaven.

WOUNDED WARRIOR
ProjEct


Pensacola Beach's news
available worldwide


So how far is this bike leg of the
Santa Rosa Island Triathlon on Oc-
tober 2? It's only 18 miles. Only 18
miles? Yes, think of it this way: it's
only 9 miles out and 9 miles back.
Are there hills, bridges, technical
turns? Ah, no. This is probably
THE best bike course to race on -
especially if it's your first triathlon.
It's nice, flat and fast!
Canyou ride your beach cruiser,
bicycle or mountain bike? Why yes,
you can. You can check the rules
online at www.USATriathlon.org for
more info, but here are some general
ones that folks seem to forget:
Drtli;,. -kccp at least three
bike lengths of clear space between
you and the cyclist in front. If you
move into the zone, you must pass
within 15 seconds.
Position-keep to the right hand
side of the lane of travel unless
passing.


Blocking-riding on the left side
of the lane without passing anyone
and interfering with other cyclists
attempting to pass is illegal.
Overtaken-once passed, you
must immediately exit the draft zone
from the rear, before attempting to
pass again.
Helmets-Only helmets ap-
proved by the US Consumer Prod-
uct Safety Commission may be
used (Check for sticker inside your
helmet). Helmets must be worn at
all times while on your bike along
with your chin strap fastened.
OK, then, did you get all those?
No drafting, always ride on the right
side, pass on the left and wear your
helmet. If you're not comfortable
on your road or triathlon bike, see
your local bike shop or contact us
at 850-564-8745 and we'll give you
a professional bike fit. Now get out
there and ride!

Card Playing Judge Sentences

Scher To Second Place


Here comes the Judge! Sheri
Smith, a retired Texas judge, handed
down a decision to take all the chips
away from fifteen top contenders
who played Texas Hold 'Em 4444
Fun at the Sandshaker Lounge on
August 23. The judge, who captured
her first ever win at the Beach poker
tables, sentenced Justin Scher to
stretch in the runner's-up chair.
"The Monday night games are
attracting some great poker play-
ers," said Rick Uzdevenes, poker
promoter. "Not only that, someone
usually shows up with food. Hot
dogs and cobbler were on the menu
during August."
The following Monday Mike
Driscoll outlasted Phil Tracy during
a night long match up onAugust 30.
Play moves to the historic
district on Pensacola Beach. Pad-
dy O'Leary's is the host site for
Thursday and Sunday night games.
Paddy's results are as follows:
Thursday, August 18: Phil
Tracy took down Jessica Chellberg
in the final.
Sunday, August 22: Justin
Scher beat Todd Lentini.


Thursday, August 26: Todd
Lentini was the winner over Eric
Weatherford after he filled a gut shot
straight with a 6 on the river.

From The Chip Stack
Larry and Ana Paz hosted the
Poker Gang at their home in honor
of Larry's 39thbirthday. GlennBur-
leson battled hard all night beating
James JT Taylor in the final with
Tex Atkinson third. A great time
was had by all.
"A wonderful home on the
Santa Rosa Sound full of good food
and great people and even a little
cooler weather," said Uzdevenes.
"Larry and Ana were the perfect
hosts and we even did a little pickin'
and grinin' after the game"
Coming soon, PETESTOCK to
be held on The Pete Falgout farm
near Sulligent, Alabama in Lamar
County. It is really in the middle of
nowhere. Further information with
detailed directions will be handed
out at the Poker tables.

the water
by Saltwater Ricl
The inshore waters in and
around our Island are just going
crazy. Catches of Redfish in the
shallows around the piers are being
reported daily and nightly.
Justin Scher took a wade just
south of Harry Gowens Park ear-
lier this week at sunset and hooked
up and landed three nice Redfish,
keeping the best for the dinner
table.
The Speckled Trout are early
morning and late evening targets
and will hit just about anything you
chunk out in the grass.
Kings are coming in the Bays
and Santa Rosa Sound during the
day as they chase their dinner.
Mullet are as thick as bugs on
a bumper and a real staple in the
food chain around here. Try some
in the smoker for a ball game Hot
or cold, they just can't be beat.


The Big boats don't seem to be
working' too much lately, but, that
should change soon, we hope.
They are out there, so do your-
self a favor and Go Fishin'.


Blue Angels Confirm
Beach Air Show Date
The United States Navy's
Blue Angels have set their air show
schedule for next year. They will
perform in the skies above Pensac-
ola Beach July 6-9, 2011.
The Red, White and Blues

on July 4 and culminate with the
Blue Angels Air Show. Look for
