That's because the media doesn't report news, they try to make it. :roll:

NO BEACH IS CLOSED AT THIS TIME ANYWHERE IN FLORIDA!

It's another bad day for the news media and the doomsayers

It's another great day for Navarre Beach

I photographed the western end and eastern end of Navarre Beach this morning. The beach was beautiful with no tar balls and no oil sheen. I'll post some photos shortly.

I’m thankful for God’s grace in protecting our beach from the Gulf OIL Spill. I pray that He continues to give us more precious time to enjoy the beach that He created millenniums ago. I pray that this national disaster is resolved as soon as possible. I pray for the economic and environmental recovery that has so greatly impacted the great people of Louisiana, its eco-system, marine life and wildlife.

My guess is that about 30% of the condo/beach home owners and vacationers come to Navarre Beach from Louisiana. If you can, send money to those in need in Louisiana. These folks are hurting and need our support.

Amen, Kenny!

And yes, I too quit listening to and watching the media weeks ago.. Thanks to Kenny and all the other locals as well as those who have been vacationing in NB recently for your honest updates and reporting. In addition to reading accurate reports of the oil situation, I LOVE reading your personal stories of your experience at Navarre! It's a wonderful place and holds special memories for so many...praying for God's continual grace and protection of Navarre!

SouthernBreeze - Have a GREAT week!

We'll be there in just 2 weeks!!

Dear Kenny,
I am really confused. Last night, I saw horrible pictures of Pensacola Beach with the surf covered thick with oil. They said it was "double red flags" warning of health risks if you come in to contact with water. Are you saying this is untrue?
Thanks for keeping accurate information coming our way!

PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. -- A popular section of Pensacola Beach was closed Thursday because of oil that washed ashore there.

Government officials closed about a quarter-mile section of Casino Beach after thick pools of oil washed ashore there Wednesday.

Workers ran yellow tape 75 yards back from the water. Officials said the area was closed because heavy equipment is being brought in to clean up the mess.

Lifeguard Collin Cobia was wearing a red handkerchief over his nose and mouth to block out the smell of the oil.

"I've been smelling it for days. It's enough to knock you down," he said.

Beachgoer Nancy Salinas of Gulf Breeze was in tears after lifeguards told her not to go near the water.

"It's just awful. It just breaks your heart," she said. "I can't get my feet in the water."

Normally, there would have been hundreds of people on the sands and in the water. But on Thursday, only two sunbathers and a few people who had come to see the oil were in the area when the beach was closed.

The oil is from the Deepwater Horizon spill that

Kenny's reports are only for NAVARRE BEACH ... what happens 10-20 miles away, along different areas of beach, often separated by vast expanses of water and various and greatly varying current eddys, river outlets, etc., so what happens near Ft. Pickens, is not necessarily what happens in NB.

Yesterday, for instance, some temporary beach closures occured on the East side of FL because of rip currents. Some news organizations got ahold of that info and failed to report WHY the beaches were closed. At any time, now and in times past, there are always temporary beach closures for one thing or another.

Like the FL Tourism ad says, there are blah-blah miles of FL beaches ... 200+ are in the Panhandle. Navarre Beach and Pensacola Beach ARE NOT one and the same. I repeat ARE NOT the same place!

We are leaving Navarre this Saturday. Very sad to go. The only problem we're having right now is the June Grass. The water has cleared up from a couple of days ago. There are some dark clouds of decaying June Grass but that's it.

A couple of days ago there were tar patties but they stayed in the water and they were in isolated areas. I haven't seen them since.

Last night my husband and I were outside and watched the moon illuminate the ocean. Warm breezes with an occasional cool wisp blowing through made it magical.

We are so very glad we took the chance and didn't cancel our vacation.

is there any local info concerning the projected path of the oil that showed up in Pensacola? We can wait almost until the last minute to leave, but convicing a group to travel 12 hours to a beach that may be open, may have oil on it, or may be closed is a bit more difficult after seeing oil, not tar balls, on such a large area only 15 miles west of NB.

Actually, Kenny's report was for ALL of Florida beaches. He stated NO Closures on Florida Beaches at this time. Navarre Beach is just down the road from Pensacola Beach in reality.....

flamingoqueen, I'm sorry I don't have any info for you. We didn't know what would be waiting for us and we drove at least 12 hours to get here last Saturday. I admit I haven't been watching the news but before we came down here, I was checking NOAA, local news websites, this website and some of the links on the first page of this website. I think someone posted a link to a site that gives updates to Santa Rosa County oil conditions. Again, sorry I don't have that info immediately but maybe someone will post that here.
