Here’s who’s here

Students from the University of West Georgia, Georgia State University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Valdosta State University, University of Texas, El Paso, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, University of Alabama, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Clemson University and Morehead State University will be hitting area beaches this week.

On the west side of the Walton County line, ignorance is bliss.

Over at June White Decker Park Public Beach Wednesday afternoon, crowds were smaller and breakers were unaware of the crackdown March 11 at a Miramar Beach house party.

Sophie Dirardeau, a freshman at University of South Alabama, hadn't heard the news of the bust.

"That makes me a little nervous," she said.

Dirardeau and her friends said they were staying right across the street from the beach, only about 15 minutes away from the Miami Street crackdown.
