“Give That Air Sand BACK!!”

“But I breathe live at the BEACH!”

Pound Sand takes on a whole new meaning around here.

A sand fight is brewing on Pensacola Beach.
Pensacola Beach leaseholders accumulating sand on their lots may be asked to return it soon, at their own cost.
The Santa Rosa Island Authority on Wednesday agreed unanimously to request Jacksonville-based coastal engineering firm Olsen Associates examine the issue of how much sand leaseholders can keep around their homes.
“We’ve got to determine what’s the proper height,” SRIA general manager W.A. “Buck” Lee said.
Most of the sand displacement occurred during a spate of hurricanes and tropical storms to strike the barrier island during the last several years.
The Island Authority offered to remove the sand that washed onto peoples’ lots after the storms, but sand removal now is going to come at the property owner’s expense, Lee said.
They’re going to have a terrible time trying to legislate that,” beach leaseholder Joseph Reynes said.

Ya think?
