Wal-Mart tells city it'll be a plus for traffic
by JEFFREY MINTON
A study, on behalf of Wal-Mart indi-
cates that a proposed supercenter in
Neptune Beach would reduce "poten-
tial" traffic at the proposed site by
roughly 2,400 trips per day, according
to an attorney representing the retail-
But that's based upon the current
148,200-square-feet of retail space at
630 Atlantic Boulevard -the proposed
Wal-Mart site being fully occupied,
something it has not been for some
And City Manger Jim Jarboe said
Thursday that the traffic figures Wal-
Mart has provided the city aren't
enough for him to determine whether
the proposed project meets concur-
rency that is, ensuring the project
won't negatively impact adjacent
services such as roads, water,* and
"It doesn't tell me anything,"
Jarboe said of the traffic figures from
"The traffic study they have given
to me does not allow me to determine
whether they meet concurrency."
The traffic analysis by CPH
Engineers, Inc. provides that the pro-
posed site currently has the potential
- if fully occupied to generate 5,788
vehicular trips per day and 536 trips
during peak afternoon hours. The
study concludes that the proposed
Wal-Mart at the site will only generate
3,400 daily trips and 316 trips during
peak afternoon hours.
That's a reduction of 2,388 daily
trips and a reduction of 220 peak hour

Two planning boards get lesson in land use

Members of two planning boards in
Jacksonville Beach received a lesson in land use
in a two-day training session at City Hall.
Attorneys Brenna Durden and Melissa Gross-

the legal ins and outs of the state's land use reg-

STUCK IN THE MUCK
Photo by JEFFREY MINTON
Crews work to pull heavy equipment from a pit of muck Wednesday afternoon on Beach
Boulevard. Tow trucks used steel cables to hook onto the red backhoe. Traffic along Beach
Boulevard was backed up as much a half hour at times as crews worked to excavate the
equipment. Work is being done in anticipation of the construction of a new bridge at Beach
Boulevard. Work begins this month to replace the existing drawbridge currently in place. The
first span will be built north of the existing bridge and go over the property where the equip-
ment was stuck.
The program also reviewed the legalities
involved for quasi-ludicial proceedings in
which a specific body acts similar to a court of
law and discussed access to public records and
compliance with the state's Government in the

Attempted armed robbery was reported
May 28 on the oceanfront in Jacksonville
Beach at 1 a.m.
The victim told police he was walking on
the beach in the 300 block south when he
was approached by an unknown male sus-
pect in his early 20's and a female.
According to the police report, the victim
who noticed a gun in the suspect's left
When the victim began yelling that he
as being robbed, the male suspect struck
the victim on the head with the gun, dis-
charging one round in the air, police report-
Both suspects fled north on foot. A wit-
ness heard the victim yelling and told
police she heard a gunshot.
A man posing as a Jacksonville Beach
Police officer threw a bottle at a vehicle
Monday after a driver failed to obey his,
orders to stop her car at the intersection of
3rd St. and Beach Boulevard.
The 20-year-old victim told police she
was approached at 8 p.m. by a man wearing
a black shirt and khaki shorts. He walked up
to the driver side window and identified
himself as a police officer in Jacksonville
Beach. Suspicious when the suspect told her
to stop her vehicle, the victim sped away.
Code Red calls
A new high-speed emergency notification system
that will allow residents and business owners to
receive prerecorded phone messages warning about
public safety issues such as floods, fires, bomb threats
and hurricane evacuations is available.
The new technology, called Code Red, will be con-
sidered by Neptune Beach, but Jacksonville Beach
already uses the county's system, which is similar.
Atlantic Beach does not currently have an automat-
ed notification system.
A Code Red system became operational in St.
Johns County this week, using $15,000 worth of
money seized from drug busts to launch the system
- called Code Red and to provide 100,000 min-
utes of messaging to residents for the next two years.
"It's better than TV in a lot of ways." St. Johns
County Sheriff David Shoar told St. Johns County
commissioners in the board's meeting Tuesday.
The system, which is capable of making about
60,000 calls per hour, is geographically based,
enabling emergency officials to target the entire
county or certain areas, according to a press release.
Shoar said the messaging system will ensure that
residents will receive accurate, clear information
about public safety as quickly as possible.
"Code Red gives those people who want to be
included an easy and secure method for doing so,"
.Shoar said. "This information will only be used for
Public safety purposes."

"... [T]his property [630
Atlantic Boulevard] is vested
with far more trips than what
is needed for the proposed
Wal-Mart," said attorney Karl
Sanders, who represents Wal-
Mart, in a May 25 letter to
Neptune Beach City Manager
The ... analysis demonstrates
that the existing shopping cen-
ter, when fully leased generates

April 17 filed plans with the
city to build a 117,000-square-
foot supercenterat the site, the
former location of Food Lion
and Big Lots. Food Lion closed
in August 2005 and Big Lots
closed in January.
'Sanders goes on. to say that
estimated traffic. reduction
"should come as no surprise"
because "one would expect
that replacing an existing retail
shopping center with one that
is some 30,000-square-feet
smaller would generate fewer
:traffic trips." -
"In sum; the proposed super-
center represents a significant
net reduction in the already
vested traffic generation poten-
tial of this site.
The city's Planning and
Development Review ,Board
will hold a public meeting June
20 to review Wal-Mart's plans.
Although the plans were
originally filed with the city
April 17, the city staff deemed
the materials "insufficient" for
review. Per city code, Wal-
Mart's representatives had
until last Friday to submit an
amended package of plans to
the city or the company would
have to reapply for the project.
The city received those plans
late last Friday.
City staff earlier this week
would not comment on
whether the plans received
Friday were sufficient to.,move
forward with a review.
But city Community,
Development Director Jason
Cleghorn said Thursday that
Wal-Mart will not have to reap-
ply. He said, however, that it
will be up to the Planning and
Development Review Board at
its June 20 meeting to deter-
mine whether the plans are
sufficient to move forward
with a review.
The Neptune Beach City
Council has asked the repre-
sentatives of Wal-Mart to fund
an independent traffic study of
the project. Wal-Mart has not
responded to that request,
according to city officials.
The council last month
expressed interest in having
the city fund its own traffic
study for the project. That idea
is scheduled to be discussed at
the council's Monday meeting.
The meeting will take place at
City Hall, 116 First Street, fol-
lowing a, budget workshop
meeting at 6 p.m.
Jarboe said Thursday a
traffic study would cost
Also at Monday's meeting,
the council is expected to pass
a new ordinance that essential-
ly limits any one business in
the city from being over 60/000
square feet in gross floor area.,
The council tentatively passed
the ordinance 4-1 earlier last
The ordinance is aimed at
keeping Wal-Mart or any) other
"big box" retailer, from moving
into the city. It was proposed
after city officials learned that
Wal-Mart was, interested in
building a store in the city.
Sanders last month at a pub-
lic meeting indicated that the
company will sue the city if
such ,an ordinance is used to
prevent the project.
The council at its meetings
Monday will discuss whether
the city needs to hire an attor-
ney with expertise in land use
issues to aid in any' potential
legal challenges by Wal-Mart.
Jarboe said Thursday that hir-
ing an attorney would, likely
cost "$10,000 or less."
Wal-Mart's proposal has
sparked massive protests from
residents in the city who say
the store will bring too much
traffic to the area and hurt the

more than two dozen seniors.
There were toys, tools, a dummy mil-.

two paperback books.
"I found this book, too, but I'm

The Leader's Opinion
Now is the time to
speak on SJ charter
There is a serious proposal in the works to convert St.
Johns County to a charter, form of government. The
group of citizens working on the proposal has released a
draft charter and is now seeking feedback from count)'
officials and voters. After the document is refined, the
state legislature iwill be asked to authorize a referendum
for voters to approve or reject the charter.
Seventeen Florida counties, most in urban or high-
growth areas, have adopted charters to provide the con-
trol for the way they operate. St Johns County currently
operates under the rules and regulations laid out by state
law for non-charter counties.
Since the charter committee has asked for feedback, we
will offer some. By the way, the entire draft of the pro-
posed charter is available on our Web site. We encourage
you to offer your own feedback.
For starters, the proposed charter continues the current
practice of electing all five county commissioners coun-,
t-wide. While each commissioner must live in one of the
five districts, all voters in the county get to vote for any
commissioner. This gave rise to the current situation that
has Ponte Vedra Beach represented by a commissioner
who was defeated in Ponte Vedra Beach but won in the
rest of the county. It seems unfair that a district cannot
decide who it wants for its representative on the County)
We believe Commissioner Ben Rich's proposal to have
one commissioner elected by voters in each of the five
districts and two commissioners elected by the entire
county will provide much better representation and bet-
ter government. County Commissioners voted in March
to put this question on this November's ballot.
Another section of the proposed charter that we
believe needs refinement deals with charter amend-
ments. Amendments proposed by the Charter Review
Commission (appointed every 10 years) require the
approval of two thirds of charter commission members
in order to be placed on the ballot for citizen approval.
In addition, any proposed charter amendment must have
been considered at two properly noticed public hearings.
These are appropriately cautious requirements. A good
charter should be amendable, but not too easily.
Unfortunately, amendments placed on the ballot by
the County Commission or by citizen initiative do not
have the same safeguards. A simple majority of the com-
mission can place an amendment before the voters and
any citizen can get a charter amendment on the ballot by
getting signatures of 8 percent of the number of people
who voted in the last presidential election. A charter that
is too easily amended gets cluttered with rules that are
inappropriate for a charter isee the pregnant pig clause in
the state constitution).
Finally,; the charter proposed by the committee is too
detailed in its requirements for the county executive.
Specific education, including the exact field of study and
the degree required, as well as specific experience require-
ments, are details that do not belong in the charter.
,iTbese.getaiJsishquld be left to the Count)' Commission.,
..;Q G --Ji-eer-memibers whohUave produced this-draft of
a county charter deserve our gratitude. They have worked
many hours to get to this point. Now it is time for the
rest of us to carefully review the document and speak up.

Wal-Mart is ,predatorial'
To the editor:
I have been in the retail
business for 20 years. Over
that period I have personally
witnessed \Val-Mart's predato-
rial approach to extinguishing
local competition (some of.
you may remember shopping
in Pic-N-Save Stores here in
Jacksonville) When Wal-Mart

many of them simply do not
make it. If \Val-Mart is

Relative to increased traffic.
I urge the citizens of Neptune
Beach and Atlantic Beach to
drive their car on third street
thru Jacksonville Beach dur-
ing any event at the beach.
The traffic is out of control.
Dare try to ride a bike or
scooter, it is simply too dan-
gerous. This experience will
emulate to Neptune Beach
and Atlantic Beach if Wal-
Mart moves in.
I urge the citizens of our
beach community to read Bill
Quinn's book 'How t'alAlart is
Destroving America (and the
world And lliat You Can Do
About It'. This book will help
enlighten everyone on the
negative effect that Wal-Mart
has had in other communities
like ours. Quinn's book will
enlighten our citizens that
Wal-Mart is not always who
they say they are. Citizens be
aware that their attorney's
statements in The Leader sim-
ply are not what Wal-Mart
will bring us tomorrow.
Proud of children in the military
To the editor:
My- name- -is Pegine
Echei'rria and I an- ;a-Y6ther
of two children. I have a
daughter (17) and a son (19).
One is in the National Guard
and the other is in the Army.
We are not a military family
and have had no previous
experience with the military.
My son joined two years ago
and I began a journey that
was unlike any I've ever been
I did not want him to be a
soldier. I wanted him to stay
with me, close to me so I
could protect him and watch
over him. I love him and
have always been there to
guide him and protect him. I
saw the TV shows and read
the paper I knew what was
going on and I didn't want
him to be a part of it.
He called the recruiter and
spoke to her. The recruiter
Slanted to come over, I told
her no. My son set up an
appointment. "He's growing
, up, taking charge of his life" I
thought "but he is not
becoming a soldier." My hus-,
band and I went to the meet-
ing with my son. We asked
tough questions, we .argued
and we didn't believe what we
heard. When we came home I
set out to prove that I was
right "this is not a good,
choice for him!"
I spoke (alright, interrogat-
ed) every vet and soldier I
could find.; I stopped every
person I saw in uniform and
asked about their life and
experience. I called on friends
in Human Resources and
asked their thoughts about
the military, .specifically
regarding the Armny and
National Guard, and the ben-
efits and deterrents of a mili-
tary background in the world
of work. What. I learned
changed me, my husband and
I learned the people who
serve in., the military love
what they do. That they are
given opportunities to grow,
to -lead and to learn that I
.knew my son would never
receive in the civilian world as
a young man (he was a bagger
of groceries for several years
but was never put in charge of
anything). I learned that
they found friends and rela-
tionships that bonded them
to each other in a way'J-i- vw
he wviuld rie\'er fi h in cor o-
rate .America or oh a college
campus. I learned the he
would learn that he is capable
of doing whatever is put in
front of him and that the
experience of pushing himself
beyond what he could ever
imagined would transform
him and make him stronger,
capable, responsible and con-
I also learned to confront
myself and acknowledge that
I was a barrier. I wasn't willing
to let him grow or move on.
That I didn't trust all the les-
sons I had taught him and all
the love that I gave him. I
didn't trust that 'he could
meet the challenges or that he
would be safe.
The last statement trust-
ing that he would be safe -
was the hardest one for me to
confront. How could I say I
wanted to keep him safe and
protected from bad things if I
let him drive? Why was it
okay for me to let him drive a
car? During his high school
career five teenagers died
from car accidents that is,
.0125 percent. According to
report and the specific section
on the United States "The
death toll on our highways
makes driving the number
one cause of death and injury
for young people ages 5 to 27.
The staggering loss of life and
the incidence of life-threaten-
ing injuries occurring each
year is best described as a pub-
lic health crisis."
Yet his chances of being
hurt or killed in the military
were verve slim. Of all the kids
whp are serving in the mili-
tary from school not has been
killed. Of the 1.4 million peo-'
ple serving in the military a
small percentage 0.00164 per-
cent 12300) was killed since
the war began. I had to face
myself and acknowledge .that
I was using my fears and mis-
conceptions as barriers and'
that I was holding him back
from succeeding. I needed to
step aside. We supported his
decision arid signed the

is proud of his decision. He'
.stands taller, talks with more
confidence, has goals and
is...well a man.
2. He has mentors ithe
Army & National Guard calls
them sponsors). These men
and woman give him guid-
ance, confidence and moti-
vate him to be more than he
has been and to take on chal-
lenges. To our shock he has
decided to not only complete
college but become an officer!
This is a miracle.
3. He is organized' and
responsible. He follows
through on his commitments.
He wakes up and shows up for
work. I don't have to take
care of him. He calls to follow
up on his doctor's appoint-
ments and his college needs.
Just last week he called the
bank to question a charge he
would NEVER have done that
4. He is happy. He wears his
uniform and you can see him
smile and be happy.
After seeing Kenneth and
learning what the Army could
offer her as a career, my
daughter decided to apply
and has received an ROTC
scholarship. I never imagined
my daughter doing this. More
importantly, I never imagined
myself allowing her to do this.
I've met so many women
who are serving or who have
served in the Army and
National Guard. They don't
lose their femininity; they
gain confidence, leadership
and a sense of self. They take
on responsibilities and
leadership 'roles that I- could
not have dealt 'with .at their
The other benefit that we
have seen is how people hold
our kids in high regard. They
are seen as unique and'
leaders.. People continually
acknowledge them and,
applaud them.. They are
valued and are appreciated.
I am really proud of them
and what they have achieved.-
I hope you give your daughter
or son the opportunity to
learn whether the Army or
Guard is right for them.

asked when I dropped by her
house to pick up some
.paperwork for a project I'd
been working on. Though
pressed for time and anxious
to look over the material
Susan had given me, some-
thing compelled me to stay
put for a little while."
"Oh sure. Why not?" I said
while crawling out of my
Susan's front lawn was
much smaller and more
plain than I thought it
would be. Since she was a
leader in the local garden
club, I thought the young
grandmother's yard would
be a sea of organized colored.
It came as a surprise when
Susan only had two tiled
concrete benches and a
smattering of potted plants
dotting the front of her
As soon as I passed
through the property's side
gate, I saw why. Susan had
saved everything for her
back yard bit of heaven.
"This is," I blurted while
catching my breath, "amaz-
ing. It's stunning."
It w;as. The entire half acre
was outlined in a thick forest
green hedge that was well
o'pver-Leight feet high: A
sprawlingg oak trceet'sod tn a
carpet otf spnng green tern
while decks, swings, picnic
tables, fountains, statues,
bird baths and a rainbow
colored side garden targeted
to welcome wildlife, gave the
cottage looking yard the feel-
ing of being an outside
room. It seemed like I was
standing in the middle of a
"Better Homes and Gardens"
"It's taken a few years to
get it how I wanted it," Susan
said. "But now there is no
where on earth I'd rather
spend time than Tight out
here with my dogs."
Violet and Muffin, a 70-
pound greyhound and a 7-
pound Yorkie, both rescues
that would have been eutha-
nized if not for their human
"mom", seemed overjoyed to
hang out as well.
As Susan and I strolled
from one end of her outdoor
retreat to the other, life
began to feel slightly
slower. By the time my
friend and I plopped in
wooden swings near a trick-
ling fountain, I was ready to
"This is' ,so soothing," I
said. "Wish-I had time for a
place like this'each day."
"Make time. I did," Susan
replied before telling me
how, at age 45, she gave up a
corporate position for a
chance to spend more time
with the people, and in the
places, she loved.
"When my father ended
up spending the last six
months of his life in a
nursing home, I visited every
day," Susan explained. "It
changed my perspective on a
lot of things. I knew that if I
didn't do something drastic,
I was going to miss out on
the essence of life."
'Susan said she cut back to
part time, made lots less
money, and Had far fewer
material perks. She also
became much more relaxed
"Paring life back to the.
basics did wonders for my
marriage," Susan said. "I
realize that everyone can't
do what I did, but I also'
know that no amount of
money could buy what we
have now. Giving up a hectic
lifestyle and extra stuff was
the right choice for us."
A choice,. I thought while
hurrying on to work, that
may be worth some serious

Apparently, City Manager
.Jim Jarboe ordered Police Chief
David Sembach to inspect
every intersection along
First Street to identify offend-
ing plants so the. city could
begin clear-cutting the 20 prob-
lem spots Sembach reported.
It's becoming evident that
Jarboe lacks the acumen to
manage a child's lemonade
stand, much less a city. (The
Solantic debacle that cost tax-
payers thousands and the
inability to have trash collected
on a regular basis are just two
examples that come to mind,
but that's a. different letter).
And if the police chief doesn't
have anything better to do
than stakeout a bunch of nefar-
ious foliage, then he should
turn in his badge and Neptune
Beach residents should open a
discussion on Whether we
should continue to spend tax-
money on a police department
that obviously has too much
time on its hands.
As I mentioned, Neptune
Beach recently spent a couple
hundred thousand to 'land-
scape medians along Third
Street, a project that I believe
has drawn near-unanimous
praise. It's been so well-received
that residents are clamoring for
more medians to be
landscaped. But what's good for
Third Street appears unaccept-
able in other parts of the city.
In recent months Neptune

locations, while actually
butchering plants and bushes
at other spots. On Pine Street,

Roberts and Todd Krohn have
spent hundreds of dollars and
man hours beautifying and

Nease A.D. embarks on improvements
By CHUCK ADAMS
Not one to rest on his school's
laurels, Nease High athletic.
director Ted Barbato has already
drafted a to-do list of improve-
ments for next year.
The Panthers won state titles
in football and girls soccer in
Barbato's first year at the helm,
but upgrades to the Panther
Stadium playing surface, the
ability to host a track meet next
season and filling some coach-
ing vacancies top the athletic
. Improving outside facilities is
high on Barbato's list. The foot-
ball/soccer/lacrosse field, torn
up by the amount of play it had
last year, is a case in point.
TPC at Sawgrass superintend-
ent Fred Klauk has looked at the
Nease High field and made
"He said the field needs some
rest. In a high school situation,
that doesn't happen," said
Barbato, who added, "We've
been looking at trying to do a
turf deal [which was scrubbed at
a Tuesday meeting, where the
decision was made to go with
natural grass]. That, and I want
to see a track meet here."
The last home track and field
meet for the Panthers was in the
spring of 2002. A new track was
laid inside the stadium three
years ago,. but the school ran
out of money to upgrade field
Here we have state
and what do our facilities
look like? Not like the
caliber of the athletes we
have playing on them.
Nease athletic director
Barbato has a master plan to
improve those facilities. It calls
for the high jump area to be
located inside the track, at the
west end of the grassy oval; the
pole vault runway and throw-
ing circle to stay where they are,
and the long jump/triple jump
runway and pit to be beside the

make sure that gets done," said
The Nease fields have older
"We plan to get an assess-
ment of the irrigation system
for all fields," said the Nease AD.
"Here we have state champi-
onship teams, and what do our
facilities look like? Not like the
caliber of athletes we have play-
ing on them."
Nease athletic programs pro-
duced two state championships,
something Barbato became
accustomed to in New Jersey,
where he worked at Sparta High
for 34 years, the final 21 as ath-
letic director before retiring and
moving to Florida.
Sparta achieved 25 state titles
during Barbato's tenure. His first
year at Nease, after 18 months
in retirement, produced the
school's first state football title
and the third girls soccer crown
in the last five years.
Nease has two open coaching
positions, as well as a need for
some assistants. The head jobs
are boys soccer and girls soft-
ball. Barbato said he's in the
final stages of making a recom-
mendation for boys soccer after
a national search produced
more than 50 applicants,
including some from Europe.
"Hopefully we can have some
completion within a week," he
Barbato added that cross
country, with James Thomas in
place as one of its coaches,
needs some help.
"We'd love to have a female
coach, a positive role model for
the girls," said Barbato, who
advocates on-staff coaches.
, "We've got some real good
outside people," he said of
adjunct coaches such as Dave
Silverberg, whose girls soccer
program is the gold standard at
Nease. "But for the athletes, to
have that contact with a person
during the day, is the best sce-
nario. If a student needs a little
support, that coach is there.
"For the most part, I'm very
impressed with the quality of
the coaching," 'said Barbato,
who makes it a practice to
spend time with each sport.

It's not fat that's making
you fat; sugar is to blame
A merica is fat because we
have too much fat in our
diet! It's as simple as
that- or is it?
Throughout our lives we
have been led to believe that
there are certain foods that are
good for us and others that are
not. Fat, trans-fat, saturated
fats, hydronated oils, blah,
blah, blah, have been blamed
for the "fattening of America.."
\Ve eat at Micky D's too
much, deep fry too much, and
like our salad dressing thick.
By the way, don't even think of
depriving Americans of ice
It's true you could make bet-
ter mealtime decisions than a
quick burger and fries; however,
it's not the fat in those foods
that are killing us. It's the
The sugar in the foods we eat
happens to be the root of all
evil and fat. High sugar diets
lead to high cholesterol, high
blood pressure, hyperglycemia,
diabetes, heart disease and con-
tribute to almost every other
negative health issue you can
think of. Being educated and
informed about the health risks
involved in high sugar diets is
the best way to motivate you
into making a lifestyle change
and get off the sugar.,
Sugar is found in all foods'
that people eat. The body
processes sugars differently
than non-sugary food.
"Sugars" include not only ice
cream and snack cakes, but also
highly processed carbs like soda'
and white bread. .When the
body consumes sugar, there is
an ineffectiveness of insulin's
ability to convert carbs to ener-
gyrWhen this happens, the
body goes into saving mode
(not the burning one we want)
and starts storing fat.
Additionally, the body is at a
higher risk to develop diabetes
and hyperglycenua with up
and down insulin levels.
Sugars are stored within the
body as fat yes, the same fat
that we have been warned
about for decades.
Trans-fatty acids present in
fat lower good HDL cholesterol
and raise the bad LDL choles-
terol. This leads to the build up
of plaque on the walls of arter-
ies, which can ultimately lead
to a life of high blood pressure,
high cholesterol, heart disease,
Although trans-fatty acids are
a bad thing, we do have help
finding out how much is in the
foods we eat. The FDA has now
made it mandatory to start list-
ing these silent killers on the
nutrition labels found on every
food in the store. Even though
they are silent they are no
longer invisible. "
What do you say? Will you
start eating the right foods
now? You don't have to cut
out the foods you love just
cut down. Choose from lean
meats, fresh vegetables, nuts,
berries, plenty of water and
Really look at the foods you
buy for yourself and your fami-
ly. There are more healthy
options in the supermarket
than ever before.
For example, did you know
that they make whole grain
pasta? Whole-grain pastas con-
tain cholesterol lowering
Omega 3 fatty acids that are
also found in fish and flaxseed.
Try fat free or reduced fat
milk. Did you know that Milk
has fat burning capabilities? It
has been shown that the calci-
um in milk may increase the
breakdown of fat.
Choose foods like no fat or
low fat cheese, cottage cheese
and yogurt. Remember that old
saying "Out with the bad in
with the good." It definitely
applies to eating healthier.
We must reduce our depend-
ency on refined oils! Sound
familiar? The. statement holds
true even for our bodies.
Eat more of-thethings that
are good for you like, and less
foods that are high in refined
or processed sugars. Eating
properly, coupled with a solid
exercise regime will cost money
- because you may have to buy
a whole new wardrobe. (That's
money that most people don't

Bug of the month: Carpenter Ants
Carpenter ants are very active in the summer. These large black ants not only live
in dead trees and rotdng logs, but will also construct their nests in our homes.
Their nests are often found in porch pillars, roofs. windowsills, and wood that is
in contact with soil. Each colony of carpenter ants can contain as many as 2,000
workers. They can also cause extensive damage to foam insulation. Homeowners,
beware of ant baits as many have reported that they do not work for carpenter
ants. Nader's Pest Raiders does work. Nader's Once-A-Year pest control program
includes carpenter ants. Call today for a free inspection.

adding summer color
%with annuals, but there
are other ways color can be
provided, as I have found
through many years of gar-
dening in North Florida.
Having lived in three sep-
arate places here, I have test-
ed many combinations of
plants in an effort to have a
colorful summer landscape,
no matter what type of soil
or amount of shade I have
had to deal with.
I have tound that since I
cannot tolerate working in
the heat for very long, and
because I typically am away
in June and July, I must rely
on plants that need little or
basically no maintenance
once I get them established.
I do have a sprinkler sys-
tem and I don't exceed the
rule of the St. Johns Water
I also have someone who
cuts the grass and trims the
hedges and a company that
fertilizes, but the rest of the
work is done by me.
First of all, I love crape
myrtles and have varieties of
them in the front, on the
side and at the back. I like
to keep them trimmed,
allowing for space under-
neath for growing shorter
perennials or annuals.
I also have bottlebrush
which will keep blooming
its red plumes all growing
season if I cut off the dead
plumes when they have fin-
ished their cycle.
My very favorite mid-high
about o feet shrub is
blooming now and it is
called chaste tree or vitex. It
has long beautiful lavender
spikes that smell like an
herb. This plant flowers pro-
fusely for about eight weeks,
then stays green. It does
require hea\y pruning but it
is a favorite of us and of the
These three types of
plants I would call my skele-
ton plants for these two
areas as well as the crapes
providing the color in front..
In the front, I basically
rely on azaleas for spring
color and plant some annu-
als in beds. In the summer-
time, I just rely on the
healthy green of my hedges.
.I do have a few old fash-
ioned roses here and there,.
and if they bloom during
the summer its great, and if
not, oh well.
I have found that a few
hanging baskets of begonias
in the crapes have added
extra color and they have
done just fine with whatever
rain we get.
I also have a few.

to come into bloom. Other

Straighter Teeth Healthier Gums
lnvisalign-_- is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of
custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it's been proven
effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So
whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted
since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile.

HURRI CANE GUIDE

At- m- .-w'
Damage to the former Jacksonville Beach amusement area near the boardwalk as it appeared
after hurricane in 1944. The Beaches Museum and History Center's newest temporary photo-
graphic exhibit titled "Disruption and Destruction: Florida's Hurricanes in the 1920s and 1940s"
depicts the ravages of hurricanes in the First Coast Beaches during the early part of the 20th
century. Photographs will hang in the lobby hallway and portray the destruction caused by the
hurricanes of November 1925, September 1928, October 1944, October 1947 and August 1949.

absolutely no physical reason
that prevents a major storm

A few years ago Sandrik

tory of storms in the area. The

In particular, several storms
between 1893 and 1898
caused major damage to the
area, he said.
Sandrik points to a major
hurricane in October of 1898
as causing "8 feet to 10 feet of
storm surge in Jacksonville
Beach." The study likens the
effects of that 1898 storm to

"So, certainly we should see
one every 33 years. And it's
been 42 years since Hurricane
Dora [hit the First Coast]."
But Sandrik and other
weather experts do admit that
the "curvature" and location
of Northeast Florida does
"provide some favorable geog-
raphy" in relation to storms.
Mark Collins, a meteorolo-
gist for First Coast News in
Jacksonville, said that the
shape and location "does
help" sort of.
"That [the curvature] does
come: into play," Collins said.
"We're kind of in a safety
zone. But it's not just
Jacksonville. There are a lot of
places in Florida that are more
immune to hurricanes."
Collins said, however, that
no place is truly immune to
Ironically, however, it is
that curvature in Northeast
Florida which will actually
increase the intensity of a

"The curvature ensures
that storm surges will be
much more significant when
it does hit," he said. And he
says history tells us that will
"If those storms can occur
in the 1800s and Dora in

With hurricanes comes the.
promise of extensive power
outages as tropical winds and
rain uproot utility poles and
blow out electrical grids.
The 32,000 customers of
Beaches Energy Services will
likely experience a power fail-
ure during a hurricane,
Jacksonville Beach Assistant
tity Manager Roy Paxson said,
because city officials will often
make the call to shut down
power before the storm can.
"It depends on the magni-
tude of the storm," Paxson
said. "During a significant
storm system, it only helps us
to turn things off.".
Paxson said officials consid-
er wind speeds when deciding
whether to manually cut
power. If a tree is felled on an
active power line, crews are
less able to remove the debris
and establish power.
If the power is off, Paxson
said crews can easily get the
tree, off the line to restore serv-
Winds below 45 mph will
usually allow utility crews to
maintain service, he said.
"If it is just a glancing blow,
,we do the best we can to ride it
out," he said. "Once the winds

ous for crews to keep things

The Beach Boulevard drawbridge in Jacksonville Beach at
the Intracoastal Waterway was the only bridge to the barrier
island that remained open to traffic in 2004 after winds over
45 mph from hurricanes offshore caused public safety
authorities to close all of the other bridges, which have a
higher profile. The bridge is being replaced this year with
higher concrete spans. State and county officials have not
explained how evacuation will proceed if all of the bridges
are high profile and pre closed when high winds blow as

The new study, expected to

The estimate is changing

History of Hurricanes
at the Beaches
by JOHNNY WOODHOUSE
The Jacksonville Beaches have not suffered a direct hit from a hurri-
cane, but it has been nicked by several glancing blows over the years.
In October 1898, a hurricane that made landfall in Fernandina Beach
caused $500,000 in damage, according to "Florida Hurricanes and
Tropical Storms" by John. M. Williams and Iver W. Duedall.
Earlier that same year, a hurricane that killed 12 people and affected the Apalachicola area,
caused a 10.8-foot storm surge in Fernandina Beach.
The first storm, to affect the Jacksonville Beaches in a residual way, made landfall in the
Sarasota-Tampa area in 1925. .II '
The Category 1 storm caused 50 deaths and $1.6-million in damages to the Tampa Bay area.
The storm's outer bands brought high winds to Jacksonville Beach, toppling a wooden roller
coaster on the boardwalk.
In 1928, a.Category 4 storm (hurricanes were not given names until 1950) that affected the
Palm Beach and Lake Okeechobee area caused more than 1,800 deaths and $26 million in dam-
The roller coaster in Jacksonville Beach suffered additional damage as did several wood-
framed homes, including a well-known boarding house.
The coaster was rebuilt, but realtor H.B; Daniels placed the heavily-damaged "Georgia House"
up for sale "at a bargain" price, according to a 1928 photo.
In 1944, a Categor) 3 storm that hit Sarasota with 163 mph peak winds, causing 18 deaths
and $582 million in damages, caused a storm surge of 12.3,feet in the Jacksonville area.

If you evacuated, return
home when local officials tell

Stay alert for extended rain-

Hurricanes may stall or change
direction when they make land-

rain upriver, causing additional
flood hazards for hours or days
after the storm.
Stay away from flood waters.
Drive only if absolutely neces-
sary and avoid flooded roads
and washed-out bridges.
Continue to follow all flood

7. Back at home
Return to homes and other buildings during
daylight hours and be alert for structural or elec-
trical damages or gas leaks. Be extremely careful
inside your home. The potential for collapse may
exist. If you're told by authorities to stay out, stay,
Electrical equipment should be checked ano
dried before being returned to service. Call an
electrician for advice before using electricity,
which may have received water damage.
Stay out of the building if water remains
around the building. Flood waters often under-
mine foundations, causing buildings to sink,
floors to crack, or walls to collapse.
Wear sturdy shoes. The most common injury
following a disaster is cut feet.
Use battery-powered lanterns or flashlights
when examining buildings.
Inspect foundations for cracks or other dam-
age. Cracks and damage to a foundation can ren-
der a building uninhabitable.
Look for fire hazards. Do not strike a match or
use a flame until positive that there is no gas leak.
Check for gas leaks. If you smell gas or hear a
blowing or hissing noise, leave. Turn off the gas,
using the outside main valve if you can, and call
the gas company from a neighbor's home.
Look for electrical system damage. If you see
sparks or broken or frayed wires, or if you smell
burning insulation, turn off the electricity at the
main fuse box or circuit breaker.
Stay away from downed power lines.
Check for sewage and water line damage. If
you suspect sewge lines.are-damaged, avoid sing

Don't assume your water is safe after a severe
storm. Water supplies can.become tainted. If you
don't know if the water is safe,'boil it before you
,use it for anything (brushing teeth, cooking,
drinking, bathing, etc.).
Watch out for animals, especially poisonous
snakes, that may have come into buildings with'
the flood ivaters. Use a stick to poke through
debris. Remove any carcasses to avoid attracting
Take pictures of the damage, both of the build-
ing and its contents, for insurance claims.
Open windows and doors to ventilate and dry
Check refrigerated food for spoilage.
Service damaged septic tanks, cesspools, pits
and leaching systems as soon as possible.
Use the telephone only for emergency calls.
Telephone lines are frequently o\ernhelmed in
disaster situations. They need to be clear for emer-
gency calls to get through.
Watch for loose plaster, drywall, and ceilings
that could fall.
Make temporary repairs to prevent further
damage, keeping receipts for materials.
If your home is unlivable, find out what liv-
ing expenses your policy may cover.
Be patient and assist claims adjusters assigned
to your case. Small losses may be settled quickly;
extensive claims will take longer.
Notify creditors if bills have: been lost or
you're unable to pay.
Report your claim to your insurer promptly.
Be aware, if a widespread disaster has occurred,
the company may set up special procedures.
Prepare to file an insurance cdaim .by gather-
ing all relevant policy ni ai rsr.
Inventory your home for dainaged or lost
items before your adjustor arrives. This will speed
up your claim process.
Prepare your yard n
* Trim any deadwood and weak/overhanging branches from
all trees in your yard.
* Any dead tree near your home is a hazard. Remove it
now. Don't wait for the last minute. Diseased trees are also
susceptible to wind damage; have your tree surgeon do a
thorough walk through while they are on your property.
* Trim/prune your trees for wind. When done correctly, this
leaves the tree less prone to wind damage. HOWEVER, point-
ing or selectively removing limbs can make the tree more -
vulnerable to wind damage than before, causing an imbalance
and stressing the trunk and/or specific limbs. This can be
difficult to visualize and must be done by a tree surgeon/tree
service with extensive experience.
* Hire only licensed and insured contractors. Workers
compensation and general liability are the only protection for
you and your home.
* Be cautious of any service going door to door "work-
ing down the street for your neighbor." Ask to see their li-
censes and insurance. NEVER pay for services up front.

Downed trees and tree limbs are a hazard that results from tropical storms and hurricanes. The falling tree limbs can also cause
problems with power supply as they knock down electrical lines. Above shows some of the damage that occurred in 2004 when
Hurricane Frances was offshore. The storm was one of four that came in quick succession that fall.
Feasible to add protection to older homes
Flooding is a problem in parts
of the Beaches during heavy
rains. In the event of a hurri-
cane, water could be several
feet deep throughout the
beach. Flood insurance, which
must be purchased as a sepa-
rate policy, provides coverage.
Continued improvements in Florida's
hurricane building code have been shown
to provide structures with a measurable
degree of protection.
But owners of older homes can take some
measures to shore up their structures,
according to a nonprofit organization spe-
cializing in strengthening homes.
That organization, the Federal Alliance
for Safe Homes (FLASH), based in
Tallahassee, recently launched an education
campaign to help property owners make
their homes hurricane-resistant.
At an event in South Florida's Broward
County' May 10, FLASH and a University of
Florida engineer unveiled details of a' new
"Retrofitness" campaign with "to do" lists
for homeowners and access to free technical
With about 95 percent of homes in
Florida bdilt under older or less strict build-
ing codes, the education campaign' "is
designed to give the owners of those homes
information about retrofitting techniques
they can use today to prepare for the worst
of hurricane season," according to a FLASH
press release. ...... .. . .. .

The site contains suggestions for protect-
ing homes from flood damage and wind
damage, with measures ranging from
removing dead tree limbs in the home's
landscaping to elevating the home to keep
out flood waters.
Among suggestions are the following:
Consider building temporary emer-
gency panels to cover windows and doors
that are not impact-resistant.
The site has a printable step-by-step guide
that can be downloaded.
To strengthen garage doors, which are
"particularly vulnerable to high winds,"
either replace the door and track with a sys-
tem designed to withstand high winds and
debris or protect the existing garage door
with an approved impact-resistant cover-
Reinforced garage doors required under
newer building codes "proved very effec-
tive," according to the results of a
University of Florida engineering study
released in July.
The study, which compared homes built
before and after the state's latest building
codes and how they fared during the states'
four hurricanes in 2004, found that homes
built with reinforced garage doors had no
significant garage door damage:

The same University of Florida study
found that roof shingles were key at pro-
tecting homes from the stomis.

under the 2002 code retained more asphalt
shingles than homes built under the 1994
code," says a report on the study (at

canes because loss of too many can com-

although researchers observed those homes
in damaged neighborhoods.
' The researchers concluded that homes
built under stricter 2002 building codes sus-
tained less damage than did those built
between 1994 and 2001.
"Homes completed before 1994 fared
worse," the-site notes.

Thompson, adding that many

hotel to set up operations.

not man specific shelters and
instead set up operations at
locations in Jacksonville.
Jacksonville Beach Fire
Chief and Emergency
Gary Frazier said that the city
used to operate a Red Cross
shelter but has decided not to
in recent years.
"You can't guarantee it for
family members. And if you
can't do that, it makes it sort
of tough," Frazier said.

series of storms that brought high winds to the area.

Hurricane 'shelters are
designed as a last resort,"
according to Christian Smith,
director of public support 'for
the Northeast Florida' Red
"Shelters are available to
everyone but we always rec-
ommend to stay with family
or friends first becausevyou'll
be more comfortable there,"
said Smith, who was part of
the relief effort in Mississippi
after Hurricane Katrina. "'And
don't wait until the last
minute to leave. I remember
before Floyd the-mayor '[of
Jacksonville].was on the news
and said .he was going to
order mandatory evacuation
in the morning. That night
the roads were clear. At 5 a.m.
the next morning- the roads
were clear. But by 7 a.m. the
traffic was heavy and by 9
a.m. it was total gridlock.
Anyone who can leave early
should for their own conven-
ience and so that emergency
*crews can get through."
Those who opt to stay in'
local shelters can expect three
meals a day, water- and basic
first aid: People should bring
their personal, disaster relief
kit including toiletries, cloth-
ing, bedding and personal
identification. No alcohol or
weapons are allowed in shel-
ters. Air mattresses are
allowed but can take up more
space than blankets or sleep-
Evacuees are given approxi-
mately 10 square feet of space
per person which can become
crowded in a shelter" at full
capacity. During Hurricane
Floyd in 1999 Northeast
Florida Red Cross housed
10,000.people in shelters. The
primary shelter locations that
service the Beaches are
Landmark Middle School,
. Sabal Palm Elementary School
and Twin Lakes Academy.
"People often pick shelters
that are closest to their
homes, but it's always good to
pick other shelter locations,"
Smith said. "The shelters clos-
est to the Beaches fill up
much faster. Last time [during
'Floyd] we were at full capacity
at 1,000 people at one shelter
when just 10 miles down the
road there were only 300 peo-
ple in a shelter."
Up to three pets per house-
hold will also be allowed in
another section of the shel-
ters. Northeast Florida Red
Cross is not responsible for
pets but specific guidelines
will be available through
Animal Control. Smith said
some of the guidelines
include registering pets in
advance for those who plan to
stay in a shelter during an
evacuation and providing
vaccination records, food and
water. [More information will
be released through
"In a shelter environment
you can get really bored so
bring things like books, toys
or games," Smith said. "And I
know some people would like
to work so if you are interest-
ed in working at a shelter call
now (904-358-8091) so you
can go through the training."
The Northeast Florida Red
Cross Chapter serves 10
counties in Northeast Florida
and Southeast Georgia, mak-
ing it the largest chapter in
Florida. Information on hur-
ricane preparedness is also
available on the chapter web-

"We've heard all the horror
stories but having a plan and
