If the editors themselves seem to suffer from excessive thirst and manic depression, don’t worry…these are occupational diseases, which can be quickly cured as soon as the layout sheets are securely packed for the trip to Crestview, and we can ascend into the upper reaches of our Ariola tower, to replenish our oxygen supply. Yesterday, I was forced to clean The Dungeon. All its bad points, its defects, its drawbacks, and inadequacies blossomed as I pushed the broom along the aging 3("+D Not only is the office too small, too dark, too dreary, and too hot, all the wall receptacles are on one side. So, if you should ever be forced to visit us, be sure !&!D -" ning crossways. The physical problems of The Dungeon are bad enough, but the nature of the newspaper business creates weekly paper snowstorms with drifts rising up the walls. Every level surface is covered with paper…layout sheets, typing paper, photo paper, yesterday’s New Journal, art work, last month’s bills, rejected photos, and enough shredded trim paper to start a new sport on Pensacola Beach, “Scrap Paper Skiing.” I sit on a tall stool when I am working to keep from drowning in constantly reproducing debris. It is really an awesome mess which bothers some people a lot and some people not at all. Last week Pam Jordan arrived right after clean up time. Pam, who has been bringing 3!*" 3+$ *$&-4;,!((! (*B!$33"!( look like this. “ She courteously refrained from using such explicit language as “clean” and “neat.” Cathy Kress, who has survived safaris in African jungles and who runs all over town with a Zoomobile full of wild creatures, is never intimidated by the horrendous chaos which surrounds us as we work. Of course, she usually arrives carrying a small pistol, wearing boots and a helmet, and she never stays very long… like, “Hi, here’s my column. Have to go now.” Is this the same Cathy who will sit in a restaurant and converse for hours? Then, there are the cagey columnists like Pastor Jack and Jeff Snyder. They always manage to turn their copy in at the door, remaining in the circulating air of the driveway. Somehow, neither one seems to yearn to spend any time in the dank environs from which The Islander springs every week. Then, take Dene Vaughn… she doesn’t even venture onto Ariola Drive. She sends her column by messenger. That’s how close she comes to The Dungeon. The fringe people who are obligated to enter our web, frequently exhibit real fear of getting bogged into a mire of quickpaper, never to be heard from again. “Good grief,” Mark Cashon ,$(-! (*!"The Dungeon. 48",$ $ like this,” Liz told him. “Even The News Journal .” Mark shook his head and headed for his studio in the bright Rip Curl window. Buddy Green necessarily must tolerate The Dungeon now and then as he makes repairs. Last time, he came over, things were almost at a break point. He stood on a stack of Islanders dating back to June 1981 and said, “What do you want me to do with this bill?” “In the shoe box,” I muttered. “There are six of them and they are all full” he answered. “Just give it to me,” I said. He tucked it back into his order book. “I’ll get it to you later.” He looked like he didn’t trust anyone who had to kick boxes, paper wads and wax blobs out of !,$+C "-!!". On the other hand, John Layson brings in photographs almost every week, and makes no comment one way or the other about The Dungeon. If he is upset or frightened by it all, he courageously hides his feelings, and pretends he is not really standing on copies of My Captain’s 19979 ad, a picture of Rooney’s Restaurants, and a faded cheese cracker box. John displays enthusiasm for the photo journalistic roles he plays for The Islander. He probably things the hazards of "(")! *$+'$ the training for photogenic beach disasters. Liz and I handle these inconveniences without complaining on any long term basis. However, the typesetter, the prima donna of all computers, voices her dislike (*$'$-,$ up on her screen. Why is a Queen held prisoner in a Dungeon, she asks, as she refuses to let one letter contact properly with the chips…she groans and crumples up expensive paper. She throws black spots into the middle of ads. She rants and raves and sends threatening messages. And then, "$+!!$)!(+('$&$"does nothing. No black blobs. No type. No tirades. No shrill messages. Nothing. She is the one great power in The Dungeon. She is the force of our small universe. Quickly, we begin to pacify her. We set the air conditioning at 55 yep, Fahrenheit! We turn fans on her. We start sweeping the D .;$&("!!-". We curtsey each time we pass her pouting screen. After a while we hear a cheerful click, click, click…a merry beep, beep, beep. The stories are coming through slick and clean. The moral of this column is if you must work in a Dungeon, do not underestimate the power of a computer especially a female computer. 97*R>.. OS).

It tripped up most, but not the scholarly and esteemed Sandspur publisher Chuck Steele. He did not consult the Beach oracle G. Cole. He did not seek council of the Knights of the Trivia Roundtable. Setting his beer and fishing pole aside, he sent a swift email to the pompous Trivia Master, “Jim and Bonnie Elbert.” It was indeed his neighbors Jim and Bonnie Elbert who started an organization to keep Wooly Boogerism alive. They named it the “Wooly Booger Preservation Society.” The Elberts, who still live in their waterfront home on Panferio, are longtime beach residents and retired from the grind of running multiple retail beach stores when their son Jeff took over the family business. In 1996, they declared the Wooly Booger to be an endangered Beach wildlife species due to loss of habitat. WPS membership required that a person was Wooly or was Wooly-related. It’s uncertain how many Preservation Society meetings were held, since the venues would have been dark bar rooms or sandfront beaches. The tribe thrives. Jim and Bonnie are proud Wooly Boogers. Big Bob Dority, who has a fancy new Galaxy tablet, and Offshore Chuck Brower, were among the throngs of people who answered Les and Lynn Cieutat. While they are certainly the wooliest of Woolies, they did not start the Wooly Booger Preservation Society. Les, who passed away, was the founder and energy behind organizing the Wooly Booger Social Club. His High Wooliness Les watches over the island tribe from his vantage point above the Paradise Bar. Her Royal Wrongness Joanne Brooks shall reign forever. Long live the Queen of Wrong Answers! The Queen waved her scepter and presented Les and Joy Anderson as the WPS founders. The couple, who owned the famous Sundeck Saloon and Sidewalk Caf in the heart of the Sandspur Republic, were not the WPS founders. They were champions of the Wooly Booger lifestyle. Burgers and darts. The wine menu had two choices. Red or white. Queen Jo has allowed a few to enter her kingdom, their passports are but temporary. She fully expects them to get one right soon. Monika Cosson thought it was Les and Bonnie Cieutat. Most-of-the-time Beach resident Jane McGrath quipped it was Les Cieutat and threw Sgt. Roy Wilson’s name into the answer, just for good measure. Enjoy your stay in the Land of Wrong Answers, ladies. The Queen of the Krewe of Coma Christine Cook blasted an email to the TM with a correct statement, but a wrong answer. “Les Cieutat, his High Wooliness established the Wooly Booger Social Club.” So, Stainless gets the shirt and goes back to fishing and sipping. The Trivia Master loves the ladies who work so diligently to send answers. So, name the lady who did not work diligently at anything for a while, thus earning the title of Beach Bum of the Year. She was the first lady to achieve this lofty status. Do you know who she is? Send your answer, along with your name and phone number to islandtimes@bellsouth.net. Hurry, the beer’s getting warm. Deadline to enter is June 4. CONGRATS GRADS Two former Pensacola Beach residents graduated from college in May. Proud parents Maria and Bill Weisnicht announced that daughter Eleni graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical and Biological engineering. New mom Sydney Waters received a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science with a GIS cer( $.1+-"+C*-$ soil sample research project. She loves the environment and would like to work for the EPA or Park Service. Little Sailor and husband Jeff are very proud. OFF TO NASHVILLE Madison Murphy has earned some time off.

Then, it’s off to NYU for six weeks. According to mom Linda, Madison will enroll at the University of West Florida in the fall. HAPPY CAMPERS Beach businesses and residents rallied around Karen Cook Cowen and the Krewe of Bananimals to help provide beach toys, towels, swimwear and fishing gear for hundreds of children who attend Camp Happy Sands. Shaggy’s, the Lunch Bunch, Beach Chamber members and Pensacola Beach Elementary’s Junior Optimist Club sent checks and items for the kids.

Among the one thousand guests were Art and Char Parrish, Amy Depew, Dee Riley and her sister Millie, Pandora de Balthazar and John Parrish, to name just a few. VINTAGE PHOTO Beach School fourth grader Lauren Thompson had some good news to share with the Island Times publisher.

The project, which would relocate the Center to the north end of the Casino Beach parking area, could be out for bid this summer, if it receives full board approval next month. “We will be looking for contractors who can deliver the quality we expect,” said Tice. The new building will be elevated with a south facing entryway, a lift for those who cannot climb stairs and large windows to allow for natural light. In addition the upgrades to the interior include a lobby with a information desk, free standing kiosks and display areas. The design shows ,$"-$*$).

Escambia County is drafting an interlocal agreement to address both Segway and pedicab operations on Pensacola Beach. A tour operator will lead groups of 5 riders east along the sidewalk to the residential beach streets during an hour long tour costing 55 per person. Banks Enterprises received approval to host the Gulf Coast Summerfest at Casino Beach, August 31. The one day Labor Day Weekend concert event would cordon off an area of the sand beach for staging and the audience. Promoter Cadillac Banks commented, “Concerts are a way to draw people to the beach. I can bring a good concert on a low budget.” Banks anticipates ticket prices to be 65.

Great as a saladslaw dressing and as a marinade. Available at Apple Market and Joe Patti’s.Something I learned recently is that lots of people gamble on the Internet. I didn’t know that. I knew about the games, but not gambling for real money. That really surprised me since I consider it a “roll of the dice” any time I turn on my computer. That’s enough of a gamble for me in cyberspace anyway. If I’m gonna gamble with real money, then I want the real thing! I want the whole casino atmosphere as well as the freebies like free rooms, food, drinks, and especially their money known as free play. Oh, I know it’s not really free but my goal is to get the free play money outta their machine and into my own little grubby hands. My husband Bill and I attended the Gulf Breeze Middle School Symphony performed in the Saenger Theatre. Grandson Jesiah joined the band this year which is taught by Band Director Susan Smithey. She does so much more than teach our children to read and play music. She directs them until they can feel the music. I think that’s a very valuable lesson. The ability to feel and connect with music can change the life of an adolescent. They will always remember how Susan Smithey made them feel. Sometimes there’s a rare teacher who makes her students feel special at a time when they may need it most whether they know it yet or not. Just ask any of her kids which is their favorite class. So I’d like to say “Thank You” to Susan Smithey. Not only were our children prepared and amazing, but the setting was so exquisite that if my grandson never sets foot on another stage, I’ll always have that performance in my heart. Our granddaughter Quincy Rowe aka my SissyGirl also had achievements to celebrate. We traveled all the way to the Naval Museum on Sunday afternoon. Yes, that’s a long way for islanders on any day but especially those of us who usually refuse to leave the beach on the weekends. It was worth it. My SissyGirl joined the Girl Scouts as a Daisy last year. She has sold cookies, completed assignments, enjoyed rewards, and earned all her badges to graduate to the "3.1!( ($+$ Brownie Scout, new vest and all. Being my granddaughter, she really wanted a sash instead of a vest. Well, of course she would! Everyone knows sashes look a lot more regal than vests. And !/"(+$%($$("!$ child’s future. On the subject of tiaras, our current Reigning Queen Shugah Jayne Drees Redmond of the Wooly Booger Social Club has extended Royal Invitations to everyone in her Queendom on -$+A"#4 Ye Islanders, Be Ye Locals, or Be Ye isitors from Afar.” Queen Shugah Jayne is presenting the Keep the Hurricanes Away this Season Bawl. Per our Queen’s request, I !$3"( -!;+$* ily in Oklahoma since they expressed a desire to attend all the Wooly Booger Bawls because they so enjoyed the festivities last year. Of course, they loved the name! I hope all of you come out to Paradise for this one. Should we somehow have one of those dreaded storms in spite of our efforts, you will certainly be blamed if you did not attend. You could also incur the wrath of Queen Shugah not to mention some other powerful forces that you do not want to antagonize. So mark your calendars and start rounding-up your lucky charms, hoo-doo, we-doo, decorated Sheriff Badges and any offerings you might want $( 3"! Wooly Booger Altar. All white magic is welcome. To us this is one of the best parties of the year. Even the innocent by this I mean those who just happen to be at Paradise for the food or music get excited and insist on joining the festivities once they understand the meaning of the Bawl. Queen Shugah Jayne welcomes the pledges of support, loyalty and participation from her fun-loving islanders, mainlanders and visitors. Remember, “No Queen is an Island” which is a very famous quote that I just made up. For now, it’s time to share another great recipe. It comes from one of our own SOB’s Karen Hagford who currently lives on the East Coast in Fernadina Beach with husband Rick a long time National Park employee. Karen’s a prime example of the SOB creed that “being an SOB is a matter of the heart, not the location.” She makes enough of this recipe to freeze some for grandsons Stephen and Andrew Fredrickson.

It is with great sadness that so many people have lost loved ones, caring for those injured and picking up what is left of their homes. I think it is only appropriate that we think about our prayers as others in our country are still +(") "-,$+* those in pain and looking at the task of rebuilding. It is certainly God we turn to for strength and hope. There are times we say the words that we will pray or ask for prayers, but what you may not know is there are many studies are being done to examine the effectiveness of prayer in aiding the process of physical and emotional healing. Dr. Carl A. Hammerschlag, M.D., a doctor who has followed much of the research on prayer studies stated, Connecting to something other than self, something that inspires you, *!(")!$ +,(!$, and love they all embolden the healing spirit. In an article about the potential healing power of prayer, research reveals that prayer can help people recover from depression and illness by focusing the mind on the things in life that cause us to be grateful. It is also a way of expressing comfort in times of devastation when the whole world seems to be falling in around you. As we see events unfold around our world it is a way that we can do something that will let others know of our care and concern. Many people of faith, prayer is a natural expression of trust and dependence upon God. Yet, no matter what you believe about prayer, it may be just the prescription to bring relief to someone in serious need. Here is a short prayer for your consideration.l and lin d I apprah u han u r he are u share ih us This praer is espeiall r hse hse rld and lies hae een haned he ilen srms in la hma I as u mr hse hurin ie sheler hse hmeless ie peae hse in urmil and le hse h eel all alne s all ie me he srenh er msel r ur d ill men Q “What is 3-D printing?” A The latest thing in printers is the ability to “print” three-dimensional objects. It is certainly not what you normally think of when you imagine how a regular printer works. 3-D printing is done by special printers that can deposit layers of liquid material, such as plastic, to form pre"-!$. The design information about the object that you want to create is sent to the printer from a computer or USB memory stick. The printer then analyzes the data, electronically slicing it into thin layers. The printer then deposits the material in layers, gradually building up the shape of the object. It is the opposite of traditional machining techniques, in which an object is carved from a block of material. The technology is already far-reaching and is available for the typical home user in its simplest form. Major advances in the business world have been made the creation of products used for everything from airplane parts to human body parts. This kind of process might not lend itself well to mass-production environments, but for small business operations doing custom work, it has a great potential. Eventually, we could even be making the things that we need around the house. For the home market, printers might cost 1, or less. However the inking materials could be quite expensive, depending on what you are trying to print. The list of things that can be created seems to be endless --your face, jewelry, car parts, shoes. And, before you ask, yes I did see one operational gun that was “printed” with such a printer. One manufacturer even suggested that one day new cars will come with a printer and a USB memory stick containing all the parts that you can make for yourself.

PAGE 8 Island Times May 28, 2013 The Lizzards Tongue ...........by elizabeth hewson It all started innocently enough a few weeks ago. It was nothing more than a standard permission slip allowing the Kid to travel to the Santa Rosa County Animal Shelter in Milton with his PE class to do volunteer work. Gulf Breeze High School would provide the transportation and the chaperones. All I had to do was simply sign and make sure the Kid had lunch money. However, nothing with a high school boy is ever innocent, standard, or simple. The night before the field trip, the dinner table conversation revolved around the pets we had as a family. There were a lot of remember whens. Over the past 2 years, we have loved, nurtured and grieved for our dogs and cat -Roy, Charlie, Sally and Sparky. Roy, who came to me via a co-workers ugly divorce and while the then 1stLt was deployed, was only with us for 1 months. A Bull Mastiff mix, Roy could leap the backyard fence in a single bound. Even electri-(-"I"$("!(*$ he was determined to catch that darn cat. His kryptonite was American steel going 25 m.p.h. Roy headbutted the side of a car while in pursuit of the elusive feline. Heartbroken, I vowed no more animals. Then we rescued Charlie, a two-year-old mutt. When people would ask what kind of mix he was, my response was usually, Well, it would probably be quicker to tell you what he isnt. We knew two things about Charlie upon adoption, his breed was not one of them. First, he had endured endless beatings, starvation, target practice and a gasoline bath at the hands of his previous owners. Second, he had endless love to share. Charlie was a loyal and faithful 85 pound furry *$"("3#+$3 cross country moves, multiple deployments, and the birth of the Kid. As long as there was kibble in his bowl and belly scratches to be had, Charlie thought he could outlive us all. He gave it his best, as he almost lived to be 1. Heartbroken, I vowed no more animals. Of course to assist in the rehabilitation of Charlies beaten, but certainly not broken spirit, the vet suggested that we adopt a female puppy. Thus, we acquired Sally. Half Doberman Pinscher, half Australian Shepherd, Sally was smart, independent, and had a face only her mother, meaning me, could love. She worked tirelessly teaching Charlie to wag his tail and to bark. She was always up to something whether it was !-(")(")-,"! steps or catching squirrels in the backyard. Well over six feet long in full stretched out mode, Sally managed to take up as much bed space as possible for more than 13 years. After standing tall for four cross country moves, multiple deployments, and the birth of the Kid, one night she bent down to eat her dinner and her back gave way from her neck to her tail. Heartbroken, I vowed no more animals. Then came Sparky, the cat with nine lives and the sense to come in out of the rain. During $!(!"-$"-()!"(") storm, Sparky jumped into our neighbors mini-van when they rolled down their window to see what was curled up alongside the road. They were Pug owners and Sparky was an unwelcomed guest. The Colonel said we could keep her. We found out the hard way that the Kid was, and still is, highly allergic to cat dander. Within months, Sparky found herself living on a waterfront farm in Southern Maryland. Every so often I would see her scooting along the driveway that lead to the main house. Heartbroken, I vowed no more animals. 1!-$+!-( I reminded the Kid of two very important things please be on your best behavior and dont even think about getting any animal. No dog. No cat. No goldfish. No chinchilla. No monkey. No animals of any kind. Once the Kid was off to school, the Colonel and I began our journey to an ultra-marathon competition that would challenge him for 55 miles over and through some very unforgiving terrain in the Blue Ridge Mountains. By 33 p.m. and somewhere along the Appalachian Highway, I received the text message With Auntie Shoux. Day was good. There were two dogs that were ALMOST smuggled home. After multiple text messages with the Kid and my sister, plus a quick peruse of the Shelters website, I realized at least he was using his manners. The next afternoon, the Colonel, along with 15 other runners, assembled at the start line for the Cruel Jewel. As fate would have it, at mile 35 and in a driving rain storm, the Colonel admitted he was done. The mountains, treacherously slick with wet, red clay, had won this time. It was one in the morning. While I drove us back to the hotel, we made the decision to check out after we rested until a reasonable hour like six a.m. Neither one of us said it. We didnt have to. There was no mountain too high or clay too wet, nothing would stop us from getting to Milton before the animal shelter closed. Until next time, I will be hanging out on Dog Beach with our newest family member, Pete, a four-year-old Pointer mix.

The annual Wooly Booger Keep The Hurricanes Away Bawl is open to all. All prior Queen Shugahs, Sir Dudes, Royal Consorts and documented Wooly Boogers open their ranks to those Wanna-Be, Shoulda-Been, Coulda-Been and Wooly-in-Waiting subjects of the island who want to ward off hurricanes. To the under-informed, a long time ago the island had a law enforcement officer who coined the unflattering phrase “wooly booger” when referring to the beach locals. Bearded or not, the islanders loved it and wore the badge proudly. Les Cieutat started the Wooly Booger Social Club in 1996 and until his unexpected passing, was referred to as His High Wooliness. A few fierce storms changed the landscape of the island. So, it is the royal charge of Queen Shugah to shoo hurricanes away. Not an easy task. There is no charge to attend but guests should bring a good luck charm, voodoo talisman or any other oddity that may assist Queen Shugah in keep the swirling wings and raging rain from reaching our shores. There is an altar located in Paradise’s open air dining area. Mike Norris will entertain the Wooly Boogers all afternoon. Reddog and Friends take the stage at 6 p.m. Paradise General Manager and former Queen Shugah Renee Mack said the kitchen will be open, the bartenders will be ready, and those storms better stay away. The National Hurricane Center makes dire predictions about the number of storms ready to wreck the beach and proclaimed May 26 June 1 as National Hurricane Preparedness Week. “I am ready to protect the island,” Queen Shugah Jayne proclaimed. “I require Wooly toasting and dancing to power me up for the tasks ahead.” So, there you have it. You must drink and dance and have a good time at Paradise, June 1. The Queen has spoken.

Decisions. Decisions. May’s wardrobe...insulated underwear or shorts? The month of May on Pensacola Beach was illusive this year. However, Mr. Sun’s rays are true to nature. Most of us outdoor creatures attack the heat of the summer months with massive doses of sunscreen. Nature’s little irony, the sun can do a great deal of damage even without high temperatures. A cloudy day also brings lots of U rays to our outdoor activities. Over the next several months let’s take a Safari Trek into skin care and how to avoid the dreaded sunburn. Together we will observe sun care knowledge, including U index, protection both in and outside, and other sun care tips. On Sunday May 26, the U index in the Pensacola Beach area was very high at 9. This means protection against sun damage is needed. Particularly between 1 a.m. and 4 p.m. Shirt, hat and sunscreen rated 3 plus, are a necessity to enjoy your fun day at the beach. Long sleeved shirts and wide brim hats will help the fair skinned humans on our Safari adventure. Be mindful of young babies, children and those not accustomed to sun exposure. Our pristine white sand beaches are legendary, but will reflect U rays and can double U exposure. Remember other parts of your body when applying 3 plus sunscreen. Areas of concern back of your neck, new hair cut means new skin exposure, belt line for men and the classic, top of your feet. Moisturizing your skin from the inside out by drinking lots of water will help reduce skin damage from the cellular level. Hydration is important particularly the day before you intend to relax and enjoy a day with Mother Nature. I look forward to more sun care adventures. Quaharini until we meet again everybody.

All indications are the strong, rapid growth will continue unabated. How, when and where did this juggernaut activity appear on the national scene? While there are reports of multi-sport events in other parts of the world earlier in the 2th Century, most agree that triathlon began in San Diego in the 19s. Some members of the San Diego Track Club SDTC had gotten a bit weary of their repetitive running workouts and were determined to do some type of cross-training. This evolved into loosely organized training sessions in the Mission Bay area which included running, swimming and biking. On September 25, 194 these workouts were crystallized into an actual race called the Mission Bay Triathlon and the sport had formally begun. Jack Johnstone and Don Shanahan organized the event and there were 46 contestants. Each of them finished a short course that included a 5 yard swim, a 5 mile bike and a 6 mile run. The SDTC sponsored and promoted the event. The race was held again in 195 while across San Diego Bay in Coronado, the Optimist Club held the Sports Fiesta Triathlon. That race is still held and is triathlon’s oldest event. While the fledgling sport continued to germinate in Southern California, an ongoing discussion an argument, really was taking place in Hawaii. For several years there was passionate conversation usually in bars among Hawaiian athletes about whether runners or swimmers ,* .$-",!$ he had read about famed cyclist Eddy Merckx having the highest recorded uptake of oxygen, Navy Commander John Collins inserted bicycling into several of those heated conversations. John and his wife Judy had participated in the San Diego triathlons noted previously and he was adamant about combining elements of three famous Hawaii races the Waikiki Rough Water Swim, the Around Oahu Bike Race and the Honolulu Marathon into one event. In February of 198 he launched a race consisting of a 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike and a 26.2 mile run. The winner would be called The Iron Man. There were 15 male competi$"-#!* "(!-! race.

More importantly, “ABC’s Wide World of Sports” broadcast the race and its popularity grew. In 1982, before a national television audience, 23-year-old Julie Moss lead the women’s race until the last mile. Overcome by fatigue and dehydration, Moss collapsed to the ground several times and was passed near the Finish Line by Kathleen McCartney. The drama was a signature moment in endurance sports and captured the imagination of the sports world. Triathlon mushroomed during the 198s and capped the decade in 1989 by being designated as an Olympic event. The sport was off and running. avarre’s Gwen Ingoglia prepares or the Pensacola Beach Triathlon swim at Flounder’s Beach, May 18 She’s a marathoner, but this was her %!

PAGE 18 Island Times May 28, 2013 TrCongratulations are in order "$$$!G%! sea turtle nest of the year in our patrol area was discovered on Pensacola Beach instead of Gulf Islands National Seashore. I thought we might have a late start this nesting season due to the cold temperatures that lingered into May. In fact, I think we may have broken *,$!-.2+ day of patrol was May 3 and the temperature was 6 degrees at 5 a.m. It turned out to be a beautiful day, but by the next morning the temperature had plummeted to 49 degrees on the beach at patrol time. Even worse, a northerly wind was gusting up to 38 miles per hour. It was the coldest sea turtle patrol I’ve ever experienced and it was brutal. It didn’t seem likely that sea turtles would come ashore to nest until the temperature returned to our normal range. One week later, shortly after dawn on Saturday, May 11, BioTech Rebecca Carruth discovered $"# during her patrol of Pensacola Beach. Wouldn’t you know that 9'$,$$! "a nest last year. Obviously she has racked up some good karma with Mother Nature. The nest was documented as PB 5111 and belonged to a loggerhead with a 34” crawl width this mama turtle will get even bigger. Unfortunately it was too close to the water and had to be relocated higher on the beach where it would be safe *D -("). Sea turtle nests are not moved unless they are at high risk of being washed out, which was the case with this nest. In the process of relocating it, Rebecca ,$$'" *("$("#)).8"-'$,&", female sea turtles come back to their home beach to nest, we know that the loggerhead who laid PB 5111 hatched from a nest 3+"$!($*$(" +$$). Since female sea turtles avoid bright areas and places where there is a lot of activity, it was no surprise that she nested south of four empty lots where it was dark. If she had come ashore and felt threatened or uneasy about her surroundings, she may have turned around and headed back into the Gulf, leaving a “false crawl” for patrollers to discover the next day instead of a nest. There is a possibility, however, that she will either swim farther down the beach to a darker area, come back in the wee hours when lights go out, or simply try again the following night. Remember, if you live on or are vacationing on Gulf-front property, there is one simple thing you can do to help increase the odds of having a sea turtle nest in your “back yard.” Turn out your outside lights and keep your curtains closed at night. If you don’t have curtains on some of your windows, move lamps to the other side of the room, if possible, and use them instead of ceiling lights. The objective is to let as little light as possible spill out onto the beach. Female sea turtles come ashore to nest multiple times in a season, then skip a year or two. This same loggerhead will probably return to the beach at least one or two more times in the same general area to nest again soon, so if you live on the east side of Pensacola Beach, turn out or tone -,"+()!!.8"any day now, as it gets warmer we will have more sea turtles coming ashore to nest.
