Tucked away in every corner of Pensacola Beach are members of the Wooly Booger Social Club who vowed in June to keep the hurricanes far from the white sandy shores of their Island paradise. With a
mixture of good fortune and Beach voodoo, the island tribe is claiming victory over Mother Nature on November 20 during the Kiss The Hurricane Season Goodbye Bawl. Among the Wooly Boogers who will
be at the Bawl are (Back row, L to R): Albert Steachman, G. Cole and Bob Dority. (Middle row, L to R): Chuck Steele, Renee Mack, Offshore Chuck Crowder, Wooly-Booger-in-Training Chris, Kim Schmitz, Amy
DePew, Melissa and Keith Overlade, and Stump Jones. (Front row, kneeling) are: Cullen Stanley, Kim LoBue and Jeff Scomp. If you love the Beach and hate hurricanes, the Wooly Boogers invite you to party
with them. For more on this story, see page two.

Wooly Booger Magic Dust Blows Hurricanes Away


Who dat gonna chase dem hur-
ricanes away? The famous Beach
VooDoo Queen Shugah and her
band of spell binders, the Wooly
Boogers. That's who. Pensacola
Beach experienced a rare season
this year when all the named storms
through Tomas went simpering off
into the Atlantic Ocean and else-
where, sent there by the incanta-
tions of the Boogers magic spells.
Now, it is time to celebrate
at the Kiss The Hurricane Season
Goodbye Bawl at Paradise Bar and
Grill at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Novem-
ber 20. If this party has an ending
time, the Wooly Boogers don't
know when it is. It is not necessary
to be a Wooly Booger to attend
the Bawl. It helps if you have any
spare gris gris, good luck charms
and voodoo talismans. Bring them
to the Bawl.
Queen Shugah has something
everyone at the event as her outgo-
ing party favor.
The tradition of old sheets em-
blazoned with spray painted mes-
sages like those which have hung
over Beach house balconies dur-
ing the uprising will decorate the
room. Some will proclaim "Wooly
Booger for President," or "Wooly
Boogers Pay Taxes, Twice." The
homespun d6cor will recreate the
Beach scene as it was at the height
of the insurrection.
Few stories can top the one
in 1981, when the Beach family
took on the Deputy-in-Charge of
the Beach sub station - - -and won.


Here is the proud recounting of
how the Wooly Boogers got their
name.
The name, Wooly Booger, was
attached to members of the Beach
family who the Deputy-in-Charge
of the Beach, Roy Wilson, in 1981
considered unsavory. He indis-
criminately detained and arrested
innocent people who were just
standing on Derelict Corner, or en-
tering or exiting a bar. Or even jay
walking. Or for some other bizarre
crime. The tension between the
Beach folks and the officer became
tenuous to the point that a Grand
Jury hearing was arranged for the
deputy. After testimony from the
Beach family members, he lost his
job at the sub station, and became
famous Island lore.
Although the Beach family
had been successful in running
him off the Island, they never did
anything about their victory until
Les Cieutat, founded the Wooly
Booger Social Club in 1996, fif-
teen years after the original bruha.
Wooly Boogers showed up from
everywhere to join the group; cer-
tifiable, wanna-bes, woulda-beens
and shoulda-beens. Les, His High
Wooliness, directed the Boogers at
all their fundraising and charitable
contributions until his death in
1999. At the time, he passed away,
he was working hard on the second
Kiss The Hurricane Season Good-
bye Bawl. The Wooly Boogers
went into more or less permanent
mourning for their leader, and,

now emerge only twice each year
to proclaim their victory or agonize
over their defeat in fending off
major storms.
And now, the annual tribal
dance of thanks and Wooly Booger
pride is here once again.
The decorations, the food,
the music and the review of old
memories will lead to the corona-
tion of Queen Shugah. She has been
selected at a solemn conclave of
past queens. This meeting features
a small amount of serious delibera-
tion and a whole lot of wine. The
new queen will receive the historic
tiara, worn by many queens before


her and other items of great value
including a small bottle of tequila
and a bejeweled sheriff's badge.
The new queen whose duties are
few, actually only one, keep the
hurricanes away from Pensacola
Beach, will begin her reign on
December 1.
You may offer her sympathy,
encouragement, or pledge your loy-
alty to her cause when her identity
is revealed at the Bawl.
And Queen Shugah Shelley
steps down from her exalted throne
with a toast to all her tribal mem-
bers, "May the Island breezes be


gentle and only soft rains fall from
Heaven in 2011."
A special Blues trio from
Gulfport will play for dancing at
the Bawl, Michael Vincent and
Doubleshot. He and his band
members, Dave Hewitt and Gator
McLaughlin, are popular all over
the country.
Overlooking the shenanigans
from his position in an urn high
atop a shelf in Paradise will be
His High Wooliness Les Cieutat.
He left his beloved Beach and his
Boogers in 1999, but his legend
lives on...and on...


Now Is The Time To Renew Your Bridge Pass


If you think you can scoot past
the bridge trolls by not renewing
your annual pass before December
31, you are in for a rude awaken-
ing. Go through any toll booth, or
to the Santa Rosa Island Authority
office or website and pick up your
application. Mail it or deliver it.
But, get 'er done.
All active passes can be re-
newed now until December 31.
New annual passes may be pur-
chased at the SRIA office begin-
ning January 4, 2011.

through Friday through 2010.
From January 4 to January 31 it

p.m. Monday through Friday. The
office will be closed for federal
holidays.
The pass is $50 and canbe paid
for with cash, check, money order
or by credit card which will carry
a service fee. Make checks payable
to the Escambia County BCC.
A few rules to remember are


that motorcycles must be driven
to the SRIA parking lot to secure
passes. Also, passes are never
prorated. And they can't be used
on any other bridge.
Annual passes not attached
by an authorized employee will
be cancelled. Passes attached by

Pick up your application to-
day and fill it out. It's a quick
procedure while the crowds are
still small.

Barefoot on the Beach


By Jane Waters Cooper '.%.


I am notorious for looking
on the bright side. Since I am not
a turkey, I can let my Pollyanna
thoughts go wild.
Not only am I not a turkey, I
also am not a foodie which makes
Thanksgiving a day to give thanks
and watch football. Oh, I have
eaten my share of turkey and gravy
and cranberries and pecan pie. So
who cares if I have always had to
choke the turkey down, while I
thought of all those hapless, in-
nocent unattractive birds playing
with their peers in the turkey yard
or trying to dodge the hunters'
bullets. That part of Thanksgiving
does not reinforce my bright side


Dozens of putters lined up to
test their skills during the American
Legion's Putt Putt Outing, October
23 at Tiki Island Golf and Games.
Stuart Milburn earned the title of
Best Beach Putter. Milburn was
awarded $100 for his low score, but
promptly donated the prize money
back to the American Legion to
support their veterans' charity
programs.
"This event was a tremendous
success," said Jeff Goudey, Ameri-
can Legion Sergeant-At-Arms and
event coordinator. "We surpassed
last year's donations."
Goudey noted that although
the number of teams was less,


of the world.
Forget turkeys. Think big.
Like the complete absence of hur-
ricanes. Now that is something to
be thankful for. This season was
phenomenal as Mother Nature
turned every storm away from our
shores. Thanks, Mom. Or was it
the faithful and undaunting efforts
of the Wooly Boogers who said,
"Beach people have had enough.
They will not have to tie down
their lawn furniture or take their
flowers inside. They will not have
to move to hotels either temporar-
ily or semi-permanently. The Hur-
ricane Gods listened to the Wooly
Boogers. This was undoubtedly


sponsoring beach businesses and
individuals had risen dramatically.
"This is the highest amount we
have ever earned," he said. "Based
on that, it is going to be a good
Christmas for those in the Veterans
Nursing Home this year."
The Pensacola Beach Ameri-
can Legion meets at the Pensacola
Beach Elk's Lodge monthly. Of-
ficers, along with Goudey, are:
Tom Fitzgerald, Commander; Neil
Schneider, Vice Commander; Turk
Watson, Adjutant; Bud Glakin, Fi-
nance and Chaplain.

a summer to remember when not
one single hurricane threatened
our peace. I am so thankful for
that, Queen Shugah.
No, I did not forget the oil
spill... the incident that turned our
summer economy to embers and
destroyed hundreds of businesses
and lifestyles. Be thankful that it
is mostly over now. We are getting
back on track. Although I did not
have the misfortune to be running
a business as the oil spill loomed
over our shores, I still would have
been grateful that my building
was not leveled as in a hurricane.
I would be thankful that BP is
beginning to pay some claims and
will continue to do so or will be
faced with a barrage of lawsuits.
Give thanks that the damage the
national media did to the State
of Florida with its horror stories
of oil on the sandy beaches are
gone now. Be thankful that these
dispatches are being cleaned up
and can be remedied. Give thanks
that tomorrow will be better.

Then there is the political
climate on the Beach. Be thankful
that the Island Authority handles
most of the problems, major and
minor. Give thanks that problems
of neighbors squabbling over
noisy nights will be resolved. If
we must pay ad valorem taxes,
be thankful that we will probably
have the opportunity to own our
piece of land. And Fee Simple
Title may lead to bigger and better
things for Pensacola Beach.
And there's the Master Plan
for beautifying and improving
Pensacola Beach which has been
on the back burner for a while.
Completing the improvements
called for in the plan, mean thanks
should go out to the individuals
who have created this beautiful
possibility.
And if you haven't given
thanks or perhaps even noticed
that the once flooded streets on the
island are now draining, perhaps
you should give thanks and take
notice.

Just think of all the wonder-
ful things we have going for us.
Superb festivals and events - -
-concerts, Mardi Gras on the Is-
land, Christmas parades and Santa
Claus sitting in every sand dune.
We have the very first Margarita-
ville Beach Hotel in the world.
Two thriving churches and an
extremely high level school. Great
civic groups like the Pensacola
Beach Advocates, Optimists and
Woman's Club. All these and
oodles and kaboodles more right
here on Pensacola Beach.
Add all this to the natural
beauty which surrounds us every
day. Many folks who are pushing
their snow shovels wish they were
as lucky as we are.
If you thought you didn't have
anything to be thankful for this
year, think again.
Remember your mother al-
ways told you to say "thank you"
for every gift you received. Not a
bad idea. And just be so happy you
are not a turkey.

Former Beach business owner
Joy Anderson has retired - again.
She and her husband Les, who
passed away, owned the Sundeck
Saloon. After selling that business,
Joy dabbled in art and worked at a
pre-school in Pensacola for 14 years.
Her first official day of retirement
was Monday, November 8. She put
on her black high heeled boots and
celebrated at the Biloxi casinos.

Kim LoBue announced that one
of these days she will be in Alaska
to watch the famous dog sled race,
The Ididirod. This year it falls on the
same weekend as the Beach Mardi
Gras parade and the girl has her pri-
orities - parades. Look for Kim and
her spectacularly decorated bicycle
in the Beach Chamber's Surfing
Santa Holiday Parade, Sunday, De-
cember 12 at 2 p.m.

Mary Graham has been named
among the Teachers of the Year in
Santa Rosa County. She is a Gulf
Breeze Middle School teacher
and lives in Gulf Breeze with her
husband Mike, whose friendly face
welcomes everyone to the beach at
the toll facility each day.

Judy L'Oignon is the newest
member of the Glamorous Grand-
mothers Club. According to Grand-
ma Judy, Veronica Bryne was born
on October29 in East Longmeadow,
Massachusetts. Herparents are John
and Emily Byrne. Emily came to
the beach each summer to visit her
dad, Chuck "Le Bum" L'Oignon,
who passed away last year. Little
Veronica will take her place as the
youngest Sister of the Beach and at
press time has no middle name. Per-
haps "Le Bum" will be her middle
name, too.

The Beach's Sidewalk Social
Director, Gena Raymon, has been
keeping the calendar full. She's ex-
tended her party trail all the way to
Grand Marlinwhere they toasted Ba-
nanimals Queen Carlette Howell's
birthday. She announced a "Gordy


t, v p yJ
with Doug Gordon and Chuck Sheldt
who were chalking up another year.

Suzi and Rick Gordon send
a hello to their Pensacola Beach
friends. They are visiting their
other beach house in Maine which
overlooks the water of Western Bay
facing Mt. Desert Island. Rick says
the sunrise over Cadillac Mountain
is priceless, but the weather is a brisk
32 degrees.

It's takes more than one party
to properly celebrate Nellie Bryan's
100th birthday. Friends gathered at
her condo in Gulf Breeze on No-
vember 2 for the first of a string of
soirees. Among the guests were Ed-
wina, Sheila and Steve Speirs, Rev.
Tom Garrison, Evelyn and George
Wright and Linda Taylor Murphy.
The Pensacola Beach Woman's Club
will be toasting Nellie on November
18 after the Santa Rosa Island Au-
thority honors her at their November
17 meeting.

The Krewe of Wrecks raised
their beer cans in a toast to Vern and
Betsey Phillips. Vern's company
transferred him to Dallas, Georgia.
The popular couple are former royal
court members. Vem, who was fa-
mous beachwide for his costuming
skills, served for years on the Wrecks
Board of Directors.

The indomitable Trivia Master
may be looking for a new job. The
Publisher hasn't yet come right out
and said it, but she thinks the Trivia
Master is a borderline dumbbell.
He disagrees. Last issue he sent out
a question that was a real challenge
for the Trivia players. The problem
is that they are oh-so-smart.
"What one word describes
both an outer garment worn to
protect us from the cold and also
the manner in which some of us
eat holiday dinners?" That had to
be a tough one, the Trivia Master
gloated. But, you just can't stump
folks like Jim Knell, former Marine
Major who was a Harrier pilot. "Fi-
nally got one," he emailed. "Scarf."
He was the first and won the
shirt.
Others were close on his heels
and correct as well.
"How about scarf' asked Mike


Cook, a little bit too late.
"A scarfed turkey," said Robert
Dority, last edition's winner. Ok, but
also too late.
"A scarf' wrote Chris Dailey.
Sandspur publisher elaborated
by putting his answer in a complete
sentence. "Don't get your scarf in
the gravy when you scarf the turkey
and mashed potatoes."
Sharon Felder Bernard wrote,
"Hope I got it right." She did. "Hope
I'm first. Been a long dry spell."
Don't quit now, Sharon.
Even the Queen of Wrong
Answers Joanne Brooks got this
one right, along with SRIA staffer
Robbie Lofty, and Elaine Tennimon.
Queen Joanne may have to change
her name and move to the Land of
Right Answers.
Our Lady Kim of the Round-
table got it right, of course, but Sir
Morrie bungled this one. He thought

Robert Rinke Proposes New Concert Series

Plan Includes Landscaping and Trolley Changes


Robert Rinke, Pensacola
Beach developer, brought a three
pronged request to the Santa Rosa
Island Authority at their Full Board
meeting on November 3. Rinke's
not-for-profit proposal is designed
to give the beach an uplift and the
face lift it needs, to attract guests
at all levels.
Nc%\\ things will improve our
market niche," said Board member
Vernon Prather. "We have come
a long way since Ivan. We put it
all together - - resort style land-
scaping, trolleys, events to draw
people. It is a total package. A lot
of forward thinking."
An eight to twelve week con-
cert series topped the list onRinke's
presentation. He provided the fol-
lowing information:
[] Live music on a stage located
at Casino Beach
[] The series would be weekly
for 8 to 12 weeks on Saturday nights
beginning in March
[] Beach would only be closed
off in that area from 8 to 11 p.m.
OI Expectations would be to
host 15,000 to 20,000 concert goers
from the Pier to Crabs
[] Tickets would be free to ho-
tel guests and for sale to locals at a
reasonable price like $15
[] The Live Entertainment


Committee would hire a promoter
to actually handle the concert and
all the details of its promotion and
administration. The books and
financial aspects of the concert se-
ries would be open at all times for
inspection.
Rinke noted that this would
be an SRIA event with the Island
Authority in control of it.
Secondly, Rinke asked for a
Committee to discuss his project
to plant 3,000 palm trees on Via de
Luna and Ft. Pickens Road. This
project would be funded by the
excess lease fees paid by Portofino.
The Authority now holds this money
in an Island Beautification Fund.
Rinke's third request was to
bring back the colorful, open air
trolleys which, he feels, were far
more fun and aesthetically pleasing
than the ones now in use.
"We need the fun factor on the
Beach," Rinke said. "I would like
to research double-decker open air
trolleys."
Rinke pointed out that any
shortfall from the concerts could be
compensated from the Island Beau-
tification Fund. Dottie Ford, SRIA
director of finance, reported that the
fund now has a total of $1,304,000.
"I would like to see something
beautiful come to this island like

landscaping and I am pleased to be
a part of this," said Tammy Bohan-
non, SRIA chairman.
Most board members agreed,
but asked Rinke to bring a more
detailed plan to the next meeting.
Dr. Thomas Campanella, made
a motion to send the ideas to the
Special Projects Committee which
in turn would select committees to
consider each of the three proposals.
The Board denied the request of
Larry Porto to use an ATV to take
equipment from Margaritaville Ho-
tel to the beach. The matter of allow-
ing ATV traffic on the Beach came
down to safety and the Board voted
five to one to deny with Chairman
Tammy Bohannon voting against
the motion.
The board decided to appoint
a committee to help solve the noisy
wedding problem they have been
wrestling with for more than a year.
Committee members are: Sher-
rie Snider, Joe Billingsly, Monica
Kellner and Ray Ascherfeld. Con-
sultants to the committee will be


Robert Beasley, attorney for the
rental house owners; Mike Stebbins,
SRIA attorney; Lt. Rodney Eddins,
Escambia County Sheriff's Depar-
ment; Tammy Bohannon, Buck Lee
and Bob West of the SRIA.
The committee is expected to
come up with a resolution at the
December 15 meeting.
SRIA Executive Director Buck
Lee said in his report that a new
piece of heavy equipment will be
seen on the beach, a sand sifter that
works twice as fast as the present
Sand Shark.
"The sand sifting operation will
take 60 to 90 days," Lee estimated.
"If they can get it all done by the end
of January, I'll be happy. "
Lee is anxious to have the
beach cleaned by the beginning of
the next summer season.
Lee noted that it has been
twenty-seven years since the board
received a raise. "We are recom-
mending the stipend they receive be
raised to $800 per month," he said.

the Visitor's Center, told the Board
that the Center saw an increase of
1162 more visitors this October
than last.
"We had guests from Germany,
England and Columbia," she said.
"And our local top states were
Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Ten-
nessee and Georgia."
The meeting was adjourned
with an affirmative answer to Dr.
Thomas Campanella's request to
honor Nellie Bryan in a proclama-
tion. The longtime beach resident
celebrated her 100th birthday on
November 2. She will also be rec-
ognized on the reader board at the
request of Lynda Knell, Woman's
Club president.
Nellie is the widow of Ruepert
Bryan, whose successful lawsuit
against the county in 1987 stopped
ad valorem taxation on Pensacola
Beach.
The next meeting of the Au-
thority will be the committees on
November 17 at the SRIA at 5 p.m.

peas, porribge & a bymartini

by Kathi Lewis


After my last trip to Biloxi,
I think I need to travel with dif-
ferent friends or go to a different
casino. Am I just paranoid or are
they watching us? Maybe they just
don't realize how much fun a Sister
of the Beach can stir up on a good
day........Oh, well.
While I don't consider myself
a fashion coordinator, I do know
that it's just plain wrong to be
wearing a blanket anywhere other
than your own home. So, let me
do everyone a favor and save you
some money. If you are sitting
outside somewhere in public and
you are cold, you can wear your
coat backwards. Poof - you have
an instant snuggie! If you are
at home and you are cold, you
can do the same thing with your
bathrobe. Wearing your coat or
bathrobe backwards works just as
well and looks a whole lot better.
Someone probably saw me do that
and then (Lord help me) invented
that whole 'blanket with sleeves'
concoction. Personally, I don't
believe anyone should leave home
wearing a blanket (sleeves or not)

unless it is part of a costume or
covered with magic dust.
So, now that I've saved you
$20, add another $10 to it and join
the Krewe of Wrecks. It's the best
money you will ever spend and
you get to visit and socialize with
like-minded people every week
on Monday night. That's a much
better way to spend your money
and I'm pretty sure you won't
need a blanket while you're there.
Besides, buying a blanket won't
help us promote the Mardi Gras
Parade but joining the Krewe of
Wrecks will.
Or even cheaper, join the
Wooly Booger Social Club. It's
free and you get to attend two
Bawls a year. First comes the
"Kiss the Hurricanes Away this
Season Bawl" and each November
is the time to celebrate the "Kiss
the Hurricane Season Goodbye
Bawl." Now that's not only en-
tertainment, but it serves a vital
and important service to the entire
Gulf Coast.
The story of how we got to
be Wooly Boogers is recounted on

page 2 of this edition, so read it.
Here's the royal lineage that no one
seems to remember. The first coyal
couple were Barry and Glenda Mc-
Cleary. Then Manny Friedman was
crowned King, but he abdicated the
throne immediately to J. R. and
Louise Turner. Next in line were
Judy and Chuck L'Oignon. And it
was Queen Shugah #3 Judy who
said, "There will be no hurricanes
during my reign!"
Thus began the entire tradition
of Queen Shugah being charged
with the major task of keeping all
hurricanes away from Paradise.
But for those eight little words, we
would have suffered many more
storms than have actually reached
our little island and our Queens
would have had a less difficult
reign.
Not all Queen Shugahs were
experts at storm management,
as a couple of major ones have
slipped through over the years.
That's when we realized we needed
Queens familiar with some hoo-
doo voo-doo in order to get the
job done. And, so the reign of the
Wooly's continued with Rita Perry
and Bernie Grimes. After losing
Bernie during his reign, we decided
that Kings were really not neces-
sary as the Queen Shugah's do all
the hard work anyway.
Next reigning Queen Shugah
was Paulette Provost, who passed
her tiara, knowledge and power
to Queen Shugah Renee Mack.
Queen Renee passed her tiara (not
sure about wisdom and power) to
yours truly. I slid through the sea-
son on a wing and a prayer before


gratefully crowning our currently
reigning Queen Shugah #8 Shelley
Johnson.
Who will wear the Sacred
Tiara next? You'll have to join us
on Nov. 20, at Paradise Bar around
5 p.m. to find out. It's time to cel-
ebrate the end of our most dreaded
season, pay homage to our Queen
Shugah and breathe a sigh of relief
as we crown our next dedicated
magical Queen.
Right now it's time to
cook........

Wooly Booger Stew

3# - round steak, cubed
4 cans beef broth
2 cans cream of mushroom soup/herbs
1 med. onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 small potatoes, cubed
4/5 Carrots, sliced (or baby carrots)
Fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 tbsp. cornstarch

In a large Dutch oven, brown
beef cubes with onion. Add broth,
mushroom soup, celery, potatoes
and carrots. Bring to a boil, then
simmer covered until veggies are
tender. Add mushrooms and con-
tinue cooking until tender, adding
water as needed.
Stew can be slightly thickened
by slowly adding cornstarch mixed
with 1/4 cup water.
Serve over cooked pasta noo-
dles with cheesy bread. Serves a
whole buncha Wooly Boogers.
Enjoy, share and join the cel-
ebration!
See ya in the kitchen.....

Mostl Nuts BBy

A - r"^ .- . --'-.- -


Boot Camp is everything I
thought it would be, and then
some. I have gone two and a half
weeks without refined sugar. This
has had a significant impact on the
fat reserves in my body. The mus-
cles are coming back at a much
faster rate than I had expected at
57-years-old; so much so, that my
running partner and I along with
another twosome, took first place
in the "Chariot Race."
Now let me explain what a
chariot race actually involves. My
running partner is 30-years-old, a
sprinter and fiercely competitive.
I am 57-years-old, not a sprinter,
but can run forever slowly. I am
fiercely competitive, too. We had a
practice run on Wednesday. Cheryl
had us in first place, and I dropped
us down to third out of 14 groups.
Hmmm - neither one of us liked
that. So, what to do? What to do?


Go into engineering mode, analyze
the situation, provide all good pos-
sible solutions.
Let me digress for a minute.
The Chariot Race is composed of
two people. The person in front
is essentially the horse. The front
person has a strap around their
waist with handles at each end.
The back person has a hold of the
handles and provides resistance.
This gives a good work out to
both groups.
Switching the strap from the
front woman to the back woman
is an awkward process. Ha - time
lost here! I worked out a smooth
transition process in my mind. We
practiced and perfected it 'til we had
it down to a fine art.
Next, I examined the order. Let
the fastest sprinter go last. Let me
go first. No problem with switching
positions.

'S


Finally, I needed a little more
slack when I am in the horse posi-
tion. My partner was stronger than I
and could rein me in too much (pun
intended). All problems solved.
The day of our big race had an
additional twist. We had another
team of two with us. They went out
first, and we were in fifth place out
of seven groups. Well, my brain
went into swim-meet-relay-mode.
I took off and started passing the
other teams. We were in first when
we began to make the switch. The
transition was smooth, and my
partner flew dragging me with her.
My legs were running like there was
no tomorrow. We left everyone in
our dust and claimed victory. Our
relay team members were beside
themselves with joy.
And, you know what the best
part is? I am getting healthier and
happier with each step I take!

There seems to be an overnight
transformation each year. The sec-
ond Halloween is over, the stores
are filled with the Thanksgiving and
Christmas fare. Tis the season... to
be overwhelmed. Between various
charity drives, school functions, and
holiday craze, we become engulfed
in a whirlwind of activity as we
launch into the Christmas season.
Amidst all that is going on we need
to spend some time in reflection or
else we may miss the fruits that God
wants to give us.
Thanksgiving, a holiday cel-
ebrating the pilgrims arrival into the


new world. Let us take some time
to reflect on the pilgrimage that we
are currently traversing. Though
we do not seek religious freedom
in a new land, but the promise of
freedom from sin.
At times we think that God has
given us these intense desires and
then told us not to act on them. Sin
is merely getting a passing grade.
The reality is sin deprives us of our
humanity. When we say "that is only
human nature," we are speaking in
error. We were not meant to lie, to
hurt, to steal, to take advantage of,
we were meant to live in the truth


that to follow God's commandments
and the Beatitudes is to live in the
image of God's immense love. At
times we have been victorious in
our battles over sin, and yet we are
not quite there.
Let us give thanks this season
for the gift of salvation granted to
us. We are a pilgrim people. We
have already tasted the Kingdom, a
life free from the corruption of sin
and immersed in pure joy, but have
yet to reach the Heavenly gates.
Let's give thanks for the journey
of life we walk together toward
eternal life.

Full Steam Ahead, Wrecks r - ---- ---r -e---- -- ~...

Sail Into Carnival Season I mS


The Wrecks are rolling along
one hundred and one strong as of
their November 8 meeting at The
Dock. Melanie Waite, Sec-Wreck
said, "We are way ahead of last
year's membership. We have lots
of renewals and some new, young
members."
The krewe welcomed 2010
Deckhand Robert Drees, Chris
Shearman, Heather Hayes and
Travis Talley to the ranks of the
Wrecks. They are among the 27
new members.
Running Around Wreck Jeff
Goudey announced over the din
of laughter and clinking ice cubes
that the members will be able to
purchase Champagne Breakfast and
Grand Costume Ball tickets as well
as join the all-important commit-
tees. Sign up sheets will be available
to volunteer for the ball, breakfast,
parade or red beans and rice team at
the upcoming meetings.
"This is how is all gets done,"
said Goudey. "Being on one of these
committees is a good time."
The Wrecks never pass up a
good time, so they have put Jim
Knell in charge of their entry into
the Beach Chamber's Surfing Santa
Holiday parade on December 12.
Anyone who wants to ride on the
Wrecks float should contact Knell
at jamesknell@gmail.com.
The latest in the trivia craze
that's sweeping the beach is Mardi
Gras trivia. Winners Chrissy Cook,
Lynda Knell, Lois Jernigan, and Lila
Bananimals Ready to

According to some of the top
bananas the Krewe of Bananimals,
is seeking a few good additions to
their pack. The requirements are
few, but strict.
"You must like to party, dance,
costume, ride a Mardi Gras float,
and meet fun people with big
hearts," said Darlene Larkin.
If that's you, check further into
membership at scibic/l ( bclI-

in their mental archives and coming
up with the correct answers. Mike
Cook did not have to answer any
questions, he only had to be lucky to
win the 50/50 on Monday night. He
waltzed out of the meeting with $75.
The Wrecks are planning their
annual Holiday Food Drive for
Manna to be collected at the Decem-
ber 13 and 20 meetings. Members
should bring non-perishable food
items.
The krewe is still accepting

BYTES AN D BITS Your Computer Pal


Q: "When will Microsoft have
a new Windows System?"
A: Look for something new in
about two years, possibly late 2012.
For marketing purposes, Microsoft
is usually very quiet about when
new operating system software will
be released. Currently the new soft-
ware is called Windows 8, but that
could change before final release.
Microsoft's Dutch subsidiary is said
to be working on it, and there have
also been reports that Microsoft has
been advertising for new employees
to work on Windows 8.
Microsoft does not want to
cut into their sales of Windows
7 by causing customers to delay


purchases until the new software
is released. Since October 2009,
when Windows 7 was released,
240 million copies have been sold.
The customer base for Operating
Systems software is now using
60% Windows XP, 17% Windows
7, and 13% Windows Vista. In one
year, the new Windows program has
exceeded the total sales for Vista,
which was considered by many to
be an inferior product.
Over the next year or so, ex-
pect to hear more from Microsoft
about "the cloud", which refers to
technology that transforms comput-
ing from the traditional hardware
and software to new devices that

concept focuses on appliances that

Jennifer Neal's Beach School kindergarten class'recipe
for Thanksgiving uses turkey and imagination as main
ingredients...


I really have no clue but I think you go to like a farm.
Go to the turkey part and ask the farmer if you can have one. Give
him money-.. .5 or 10 dollars. Tell him to get a turkey that's not alive.
Take it home. Take its wings off (carve it like a pumpkin). Put stuff
in it to make it good. Put it in the oven on the 50s, 60s or 70 degrees
for 4 minutes.
Take it out of the oven and take the bones out. (You can't chew
bones.) That's it! I pretty much eat with everyone in my family.
by Aiden Bebout

Get the turkey from a farm. Kill it with 2 guns glued together.That's
how my Papa does it! Spray the pan so it can cook. Put it on there.
Make the oven hot 15 degrees. Cook it for 60 hours and let it cool
down. Eat it on a plate. With a fork. Cut it with a knife. It costs $3.00
by Colten Barnhill


Get a turkey at Publix. Bake it in the "stove" on
62 degrees.
It cooks for like an hour. Eat it with corn, peas
and strawberry pie. I have Thanksgiving with
my Mimi and Grandma, Dad and Mom and my
brother, Tyler.
By: Gracyn Phelps

Get a turkey from Wal-Mart. Cook it on the grill
on warm for 9 minutes. Put it on a regular plate.
You can have fries, corn, mashed potatoes,
carrots and cheesecake with it. I eat it with my
family. Oh! You can also go to a restaurant.
By: Benjie Shehane


MM


Get your turkey from Publix. Put salt on it. You u
cook it at 10 degrees for 20 seconds. Serve it
with some kind of sauce and broccoli. (We have 1
vegetable with every meal.) Apple pie is for des-
sert. One time we tried to make pumpkin pie and is wasn't very good.
I have Thanksgiving dinner with my family.
By: Katie Turk
Get your turkey from the store...Wal-Mart!
Cook it on the grill on HOT! Cook it for 3 seconds. I like French
dressing with it. I eat with my cousins and relatives.
By: Aaron Sampson
You can go to a barn to get a turkey but my Dad goes in the forest.
Go home and cook it in the oven. My Dad has to check to see the
temperature is right. It is supposed to be on 39. Cook it for 6 days.
We put sour stuff on top of it. I have my own safe knife to use to
cut the turkey!
By: Laney Farmer
Hmmmm...Get the turkey from England. Bring it home on a boat.
Cook it in the oven, but cut it up first. (My Dad does it.) It cooks for
8 days on 7 degrees. You just have turkey- nothing else. I eat with
my Mom and my Dad and my sisters.
By: Kyle Farej
My Dad gets a turkey from the turkey store. Take off its Wings and
clean it in a bowl of water. Cook it for maybe 44 minutes on like
70 degrees. Eat it with stuff you already have at your house...like


beans. Use a fork. I eat with Nonny and Poppy.
By: Reese Hering

My Mimi gets our turkey. She just puts it in the oven.
The temperature is 61 degrees and it cooks for 62 minutes. You
have lettuce with it. Eat with your Mom and Dad.
By: Kate Allen
You go to get your turkey from the store. (I think Publix.) You put
it on the oven to cook it for 1 hour. The temperature is 5 degrees.
I eat it with mashed potatoes, gravy and ice cream. We have
Thanksgiving with my Dad, Mom, Sean, Hillary and David.
By: Brooke Connors
Go to Smith's to get the turkey. Cook it in the oven
on probably 50 for 5 minutes. Probably eat it with
mashed potatoes, Put it on a plate, but
don't forget to carve it first!
By: Zoey Thoman j
My Dad gets it from a turkey place. It's
already dead. Put salt and pepper on it
and put it in the oven. The temperature is
6 degrees. It cooks for 10 minutes and then it beeps.
We eat it with broccoli, noodlesand ice cream for
dessert. We go to Pennsylvania.
By: Maggie Feltenberger

I buy the turkey from Wal-Mart. It costs 20 dollars.
I cook it for 50 minutes on 40 degrees. Cut it. We
eat it with dessert in it. Chocolate on top
and marshmallows inside of it. I eat with


my brother and sister.
I LOVE IT! I love going outside to eat
on the picnic table.
By: Kendall McCurdy
You get a turkey from a farm I guess. Cook it for 13 hours
on 50 degrees. Have corn, apples and pears with it. I
eat with my family.
By: Morgan Kronlage

At the turkey store you get the turkey. Put the alive
turkey in the oven where he can be cooked and eaten.
(Take the skin and feathers off.) It's A LOT of work.
Put it on number 13 for about 10 seconds.
This is what I eat with it...some fries, chicken, cheese,
pickles, spinach and salad. I eat it with my Mom's
family and her baby brother, Charlie and my cousins.
Alex just won a soccer game!
By: Jon Ryland

My Dad shoots the turkey and puts it in the oven.
Put it on 2 degrees for 8 hours. Serve it on a tray
with syrup. We like to say the prayers and go
blueberry picking and also tear into that turkey!
By: Carly Churchward
My Mom buys it but I don't know where.
Cook it on medium for 40 minutes. Serve it with


gravy and mashed potatoes and dried cherries...
I LOVE dried cherries!!
I eat it with my Mimi and Sarah Grace.
By: Hollyn Will

I think you get the turkey from the zoo. Cook
it outside
at the park on a grill or you can put it in the
oven.
If you put it in the oven then it has to be
8 degrees for like 20 minutes.
Cut it in pieces because it can't be soooo big. Put it in a bag. You
could put a bone on top of it- it makes it easier to pick it up so you
don't get all "meaty." Have corn, chicken, pizza and cookies with it.
Eat it with your Grandmas and Grandpas.
By: Teke Tanksley
You get a turkey at Wal-Mart for 20 cents. Cook it for a
Long, long day or maybe in a pan for 100 years. Cook
it only on 50 degrees for 20 hours and 22 minutes. Put
other vegetables in there too like corn, peas and meat. Let
the "chicken" cool off and eat it with your Mom and Dad.

Sometimes in life, we all
forget to be thankful for what we
have and how truly blessed we
are. So I thought I would take a
moment and go through a quick
list of the top ten things in my life
I am thankful for.
#1: Those extra 20 pounds
I've been hauling around on my
body for the past few years. All I've
wanted to do is get rid of them and
never once have I thought about
what they represent: a full recovery
from a serious hip injury.
#2: Legos on the living room
carpet. Colorful plastic bricks in all
shapes and sizes cover my living
room carpet making it difficult to
walk from one side of the room
to the next. My list of household
chores, however, is now shorter
because vacuuming this room is
virtually impossible.
#3: Traffic on the way to work.


I have a job I truly enjoy and a pay-
check every two weeks.
#4: Unidentifiable moldy left-
overs in the back of my refrigerator.
Wow, I not only had the ingredients
and the time to cook and feed my
family dinner, but the luxury of
allowing the extras to go to waste.
#5: Dental appointments sched-
uled at the most inopportune times.
My gums and teeth are healthy and
I haven't had an out-of-pocket ex-
pense in years.
#6: Completely kaput heat
pump. With everything one reads
about homes in constant foreclo-
sure, it feels good to be a hom-
eowner in good standing for the past
21 years. Even if it means there is no
one else to call when the appliances
need to be repaired or replaced.
#7: Empty wine bottles on the
kitchen counter. I am still not sure
why they never make it into the


recycle bin except to remind me
of what a great time I had with my
friends solving the world's prob-
lems one cork at a time.
#8: Another pair of shoes.
The joys of a growing soon-to-be
13-year-old son. The Kid is on his
third pair of school shoes since
September. Next size up and the
Colonel will be wearing The Kid's
handed down Topsiders.
#9: Not a free weekend in
sight. Swim meets. College entrance
examinations. Robotics competi-
tions. Awards ceremonies. Sure
beats meeting with a parole officer.
#10: Snoring husband. A good
night's sleep is definitely overrated
when you wake up every morning
next to the Colonel.
Until next time, have a Happy
Thanksgiving and remember to
count ALL of your blessings. Even
the ones that are hidden.

BigFoot Gets LostAmong SeaoatsAndSandspurs


BigFoot was lost before he was
found and someone snapped his
picture while he was trying to find
his way home on Halloween night.
Every year at Halloween, Villa
Sabine residents host a Haunted
Halloween Walk to which they
invite everyone, especially scary
monsters like BigFoot. This year,
the sponsors, who also happen to
be hardcore Saints fans, cancelled
the event so they could watch the
Steelers-Saints game. Only they
forgot to tell BigFoot.
So, Kim Schmitz, in her wild
imagination sent a message she
thought he was in Ft. Pickens at
Langdon Battery. However, she


admitted she could be wrong and
announced that she did spot BigFoot
at DeLuna Fest. The next day her
imagination became even wilder as
she emailed the following: "Scratch
my previous answer. He actually is
at Sammy's andyou did one of those
Photoshop things to trip folks up."
We did no such underhanded
thing, but we may keep it in the files
for future use.
Now, Pensacola Beach Life-
guard, Dave Greenwood enters the
picture. His first message was that
BigFoot was walking at the former
Spanish Landing. He also scratched
his first reply and replaced it with a
winner. "He was seen walking in


Villa Sabine." Right; and Dave get
the BigFoot t-shirt.
Where will the big hairy guy
be next? Keep following his adven-
tures in the Island Times. You might
win a shirt.

Lentini Takes

Top Spot
Outlasts Atkinson and Gorder for
Player of the Month Honors
Big Todd Lentini turned two
years of Texas Hold 'Em 4444
Fun experience into the top spot
for October. He earned the Player
of the Month title with three wins
paired with a few second and third
place finishes. Tex Atkinson and Ted
Gorder were the runners-up.
Big Todd could not get the
cards to fall his way on Octo-
ber 31, however, perhaps they
were spooked. He landed in third
place behind Phil Tracy and Jerry
Grant from Mississippi at Paddy
O'Leary's in Pensacola Beach's
historic district.
Texas Hold 'Em 4444 Fun
has changed their weekly tourney
schedule for winter. Monday night
play is at the Shaker at 7 p.m.

Showing off the Great Beach Walk t-shirts they earned on November 6,
Krewe of Wrecks members (L to R): Sandi Johnson, Melanie Waite, Lila Cox
and DJ Zemenick made that the costume of the day at a recent meeting. The
participants walked a designated area of the beach and uploaded photos to
VisitFlorida.com for the entire world to see the clean beautiful beaches.


Floridians walked and photographed 823 miles of beaches across the
state on November 6 as part of the Great Beach Walk. Photos were posted at
VisitFlorida.com. Registrars on Pensacola Beach included Adam Schrock, left,
and Robbie Lofty, SRIA events coordinator, right. Pensacola Chamber exec Ed
Schroeder, center, checked in on the walk's progress.


The Beach School kids got into the action during the Great Beach Walk,
strolling along the mile stretch of Gulfront beach just south of their campus.
Fifth grade teacher Margie Pitts shows off their message on the back of her
shirt. She is surrounded by her students Grayson Smith, Hanah Mabire and
Kelsey Gallagher.

nlaKe, hattie And Koll - Its Snipping I ime


Tips for ship shape holiday
packing are provided by Linda and
Wally Schiessl at the UPS Store in
Gulf Breeze.
1) Pack your precious presents
in corrugated boxes with plenty of
cushioning material. Do not wrap
shipping boxes in paper.
2) Liquorboxes are not allowed
even if there is no liquor in them.
The Post Office cannot accept them
either.
3) Shipping of alcohol and to-
bacco products is prohibited.
4) Bubble wrap all breakable
items. Cushion with at least 2 inches
of Styrofoam "peanuts" around each
item. Peanuts or other packing cush-
ions can be purchased. (Newspaper
traditionally has been used. It's a
good way to recycle Island Times!)
Rule of thumb - when a box is
shaken, no sound should be heard.
5) Secure along all seams of the
box with shipping tape. Strapping
tape is a good option. Masking tape,
electrical tape and duct tape should
not be used.
6) If box is being reused, re-
move all previous labels to avoid


confusion.
7) Ship early.
8) Bring items to be shipped to
the UPS Store and we will gladly
pack and ship.
Mark these dates on your cal-
endar. Guaranteed Ground Delivery
should be shipped by December
11. We can ship next day air for
Christmas Eve delivery as late as
December 23.

Natives Invite You To A Thanksgiving Noontime Feast


Tom Turkey has given Fred
Flounder and some of his friends
the day off from work on Thurs-
day, November 25. The following
Beach restaurants are closed on
Thanksgiving: Flounder's, Crab's,
PegLeg Pete's, Paradise Bar and
Grill, DJ's Cafe, Lillo's, Cast-
aways and Surf Burger. Restaura-
teurs want their staffs to be able to
spend the day with their families.
Don't despair, Jesse Brown
at The Native Cafe is preparing a
Native Thanksgiving meal with
turkey, dressing and all the trim-
mings. The Natives will be there


from 7:30 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Join the Paddy O'Leary's
gang for a late afternoon Thanks-
giving dinner. Seamas Hunt and
Gary Humprey are cooking tur-
keys and dressing. They provide
the hospitality and you bring a side
dish to share. This event is open
to everyone and is always a warm,
welcoming holiday gathering.
Sidelines will be open. No
turkey, but wings to go with the
big helping of football.
Too busy to prepare your
bird? Call The Break and reserve a
Fried Turkey. Orders will be filled


on Wednesday, Nov. 24. This is a
beach tradition and it results in a
Thanksgiving Eve party with live
music.
When you are ready for a
post meal cocktail and some big
screen sports, drop by the Sand-
shaker, Sabine Sandbar and The
Dock. They all open in the after-
noon, so stop in for a cold one.
If you see tourists milling
around looking for directions,
try to help them. The Visitors
Center will be closed on Thanks-
giving Day, but opens at 9 a.m.
on Friday.

the water

by Saltwater Rid

The cooler temps in the area
have sure been a nice change to
the boiling summer we just had
and the fish feel the same way.
Weekend Snapper fishing has
been off the charts, and, man,
you talk about good eats.
The Flatfish have started
their fall movement and tons of
them have come up in the shal-
lows and Ft. Pickens is the place
to be. Gigging is the way to go
and with the calm waters in the
evening hours you're sure to go
home with some of the best tast-
ing fish our waters have to offer.
Ifwadin' around is too much
trouble for you, try a nice sun-


set walk with your kids. Tie on
a grub and go for a walk along
our beautiful Island and get
some fresh air and maybe even
dinner. I don't think you can get
that on Xbox, yet, can you?
Happy Turkey Day and
don't forget the oyster stuffin'.
Back in the day we could bring
in the oysters ourselves from the
Sound around the bridge, but
now you have to visit Maria's
Seafood on Cervantes Street.
Get 'em by the box or already
shucked in pints.
Be thankful for the bounty
of our area waters and do your-
self a favor and go fishing .
