Village welcomes



new police chief


BY SARAH STOVER
Staffwriter
NORTH PALM BEACH -
A new era has begun at the
North Palm Beach Public
Safety Department.
Former Police Chief
Jimmy Knight has moved
across the street to become
Village manager, and
Stephen Canfield has taken
over as police chief.
"I think the Village is
lucky to have him. In many

Organic


trend


on rise

Publix building
first GreenWise
store in Gardens
BY MICHELLE GENTILE
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GAR-
DENS The organic food
industry has grown annu-
ally at a rate of 10 to 20
percent per year, accord-
ing to the United States
Department of Agricul-
ture and research; total
sales were $17 billion in
2006.
With an abundance of
money and opportunity,.
supermarket chains have
started entering the realm
of organic foods, and the
competition could trans-
late into lower prices for
consumers.
Publix is the latest in
chain stores going full-
scale organic and is
launching its first Green-
Wise location in Palm
Beach Gardens at Legacy
Place.
"The Palm Beach Gar-
dens site will be the very
first one for Publix," said
Dwaine Stevens, Publix
media and community
relations manager. "The
market in Palm Beach
Gardens is ripe and what
we've learned by our
GreenWise line is that our
customers want more,
and we are responding."

have a tremendous invest-
ment across the street (and
I wanted to choose some-
one who had a similar
management style)," Mr.
Knight said.
He needed to select his
successor before he
became full-time Village
manager on June 1, and he
chose Chief Canfield
because they have known
each for a number of years
as colleagues. In addition,
Mr. Knight has had "the dis-
tinct pleasure of watching


(Mr. Canfield) in action," he
said.
Mr. Knight also knew
Chief Canfield had experi-
ence working with employ-
ee unions. The Village's
public safety department
has two unions, one for
police and one for fire res-
cue personnel. Chief Can-
field also had experience
working on the accredita-
tion team at his previous
post. Mr. Knight initiated

Gardens students tough it out

Construction forces venue change for sports, other activities.


BY MICHELLE GENTILE
Staff writer
PALM BEACH GARDENS
- Even though Palm
Beach Gardens High
School students have been
playing football games and


other sports on the fields of
rival schools or in alternate
locations around the city,
they have not lost their
fighting spirit.
Students are living
through the tedious con-
struction process of their


soori-to-be completely
renewed school. This
process is leaving students
displaced and athletes on
the move
The new school, costing
$106 million, is being built
in the former parking lot of


the old high school, and
when complete, the origi-
nal school, built in 1966,
will be demolished.

Summer camps offer fun alternatives


Spaces are still
available

BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer
NORTH PALM BEACH
- Summer camps can
entertain and educate
children over the school
break.
The Village of North
Palm Beach is offering a
Super Kids Camp for chil-
dren ages 3 to 6, and a
summer day camp for
children ages 7 to 12. Both
camps start June 4, said
Nancy Hensler, assistant
recreation director for the
Village.


These camps have been
held throughout the years,
she said.
Various guests will visit
the children at the Super
Kids Camp to present
educational and recre-
ational programs.
Mark McCarthy, director
of McCarthy's Wildlife
Sanctuary in West Palm
Beach, will bring a Florida
panther, scarlet Macaw,
barred owl, American alli-
gator, rose-hair tarantula,
Gila monster, kinkajou,
albino Burmese python
and a ringtail lemur for
the children to see. He
will educate the children
about the animals at a


level appropriate for their
ages.
Other guests will include
a "kitchen witch," who will
teach the children how to
cook a simple treat, and a
costumed storyteller. The
Village's Fire Rescue team
will ride over on the truck
and teach the campers
about fire safety. A magi-
cian and clown will enter-
tain the children, and they
will also be treated to
pony rides one day, Ms.
Hensler said.
They will also do a craft
project each day, she said.
"Three counselors will
be on hand to help with
the Super Kids campers


each day. The 3- and 4-
year-olds come on Tues-
days and Thursdays, and
the 5- and 6-year-olds
come on Monday,
Wednesday and Fridays,"
Ms. Hensler said.
Children attending the
Summer Day camp are on
the go'most of the time,
Ms. Hensler said.
Campers will take edu-
cational trips to places
such as Hutchinson
Island, where they will
tour a power plant and the
Florida Oceanographic
Center, she said.
They will also go to the
Rapids Water Park in West
Palm Beach and The


Palace, a roller skating
rink in West Palm Beach.
Seven counselors will
watch over the campers.
The trips are covered in
the $250 session fee, but
children need to bring
their own snacks and
drinks, Ms. Hensler said.
Snacks will be provided
for the Super Kid campers,
whose session fees run
$60.
Since school starts later
this year, there is a three-
week window from when
the camps end and school
begins, so the recreation
department is trying to
offer additional services,

at other schools, and they
have lost a little flexibility on
physical education. It can be
tough on an athlete on the
road," said Steve Martin,
media relations director for
the school.
"When any school is mak-
ing changes, whether it be
Jupiter High, who already
went through this process,
students and faculty just
need to work together and
through it."
Project approval came
through on May 3 when
Palm Beach Gardens City
Councilors voted to increase
the amount of funding
needed to complete the
overhaul, from $86.1 million
to $106 million. The addi-
tional money will help pay
for 144 classrooms, replac-
ing the football and softball
fields, a new parking lot, an
outdoor amphitheater and a


new entrance that will help
secure the school.
"We will be updating
between 700 and 800 com-
puters and go wireless," said
Mr. Martin. "It will be great.
We'll have a lot of the new
technology for our students
and a brand new facility."
The project is in its infancy
phase with construction
beginning in March 2006.
The infrastructure is being
laid and plumbing, electrical
work and concrete founda-
tions are being placed. Just
recently, the concrete slab
for the new gymnasium was
poured.
"We are expected to move
into the new building in
August of 2009," said Mr.
Martin. "It will take the
remainder of that year to
tear down the old building
and by summer 2009, every-
thing should be complete,"


Mr. Martin said.
This means another sea-
son without home games, or
homecoming for students
and faculty alike.
"It concerns us that stu-
dents are not able to play
their games here, but the
county just can't build a
whole new facility in a differ-
ent location. It's a tear-down,
put-up process," Mr. Martin
said.
The students have been
dealing with the build out
extremely well, said Bill
Weed, athletic director of
Palm Beach Gardens High
School. .
"We've been playing our
home games at William T.
Dwyer High School right
down the road on Military
Trail in Palm Beach Gardens.
It has been great to work
with them, and they've really
opened their arms to our


students," Mr. Weed said.
"The county has also
worked out the schedule so
that Dwyer students are not
on campus when we play
our games."
When asked if the rivalry
on the field has crossed over
between the schools, Mr.
Weed said: "We haven't had
any problems between the
two groups, although, we
haven't played them for the
past two years. We can be
fendly rivals, but still want
to beat them on the field!"
For now, the students of
Palm Beach Gardens High
School are paying the price
for future students but
according to Mr. Weed,
they've handled it well.
"It will be great to have a
brand-new facility, but this
will come with problems. I
guess new ones are better
than old ones," Mr. Weed
said.

Kindergarten students
from the Benjamin School in
North Palm Beach con-

The exhibit focuses on
Everglades restoration and

about the Everglades
throughout the year.
The kindergartners wrote
and illustrated books, which
will be on display at the cen-
ter when the exhibit opens in

pictures of their favorite Ever-
glades creatures and wrote
two or three facts about them
in the books they made.

NORTH PALM BEACH

Saving greens from
mole crickets
North Palm Beach Village
Councilors voted unani-
mously to apply pesticide to
the Jack Nicklaus Signature
Golf Course at the North
Palm Beach Country Club at
its meeting on May 24.
The pesticide is applied to
prevent damage from mole
crickets, a nocturnal, burrow-
ing creature that is 3- to 5-
centimeters long.
Mole crickets damage
courses, because they feed
on plant roots, stems and
leave while tunneling
through the soil, and the size
of their tunnels increase as


they age, according to
http://pubs.caes.uga.edu.
The treatment also helps
control fire ants.
Bayer Environmental Sci-
ence, headquartered in
Montvale, N.J., will inject
the pesticide, Chipco
Choice, below the surface
of the turf. This treatment
will only cause the course
to be closed for a few hours,
said a memo from Mickey
Neal, the country club
director. The procedurehas
been done for the past
seven years at the golf
course. Fifty acres will be
treated for less than
$15,000. It is scheduled for
June 25. Golf course main-
tenance crew could not be
reached by press time.

Organic
From page Al


Gardens location will be a
great place to test this
new venture, even though
they are within a few
miles of Whole Foods
Market, the leading retail-
er in organic foods in
nearby Downtown at the
Gardens.
"We believe increased
focus o0 natural and
organic products will
benefit all of us, because
it helps increase con-
sumer awareness in the
marketplace," said Karen
Mathis, regional market-
ing coordinator for Whole
Foods.
The Palm Beach Gar-
dens GreenWise is sched-
tuled to open in early fall
2007. The 39,000-square-
foot location will empha-
size prepared foods and
offer only organic prod-
ucts.
The term "organic,"
when applied to foods
and beverages, means
foods produced without
pesticides, artificial fertil-
izers, additives, ionizing
radiation and without off-
farm resources or syn-
thetic imports.
"Organic is not new.
Farmers have been grow-
ing things not dependent
on fertilizers or pesticides
for ages," said Juan
Rodriguez, director of
education at Gainesville-
based Florida Certified
Organic Growers and
Consumers. "It's also bet-
ter for the land and the


L.m.: 11 -


environment."
Growth hormones in
animals, pesticide-ridden
fruits and vegetables, and
the depletion of nutrient-
rich soil are some of the
reasons many Americans
are turning organic.
So much so that organic
products are now available
in 73 percent of grocery
stores and nearly 20,000
natural food stores, said a
USDA economic research
service survey. "Cancer,
reproductive difficulties,
birth defects and Parkin-
son's disease have all been
linked to ingesting pesti-
cides on foods," said Mar-
got Bennet, a licensed
nutritionist for Mother
Nature's Pantry in Palm
Beach Gardens. "Some
foods, like leafy greens, act
like a sponge, and even
when washed, they have
especially high levels."
But organic farming is
not without controversy.
Proponents say the main
reason they support it is
because it is healthier for
the body. Opponents claim
there is not enough evi-
dence to substantiate a
claim that organic food is
any healthier than conven-
tional food.
"I think it's up to the
consumers to be more
aware of where their food
is coming from and find
out how it's produced," Mr.
Rodriguez said.
The majority of farmers
in the early days would
grow harvest by crop rota-
tion, use animal manure,
composts and replenish
the land.
After World War II, the
advent of the industrial
revolution, new synthetic
pesticides and technolo-
gies allowed companies to
produce more crops in a
shorter period of time.
"With conventional
farming, when crop yields
stop producing, farmers
need to find new land. This
has a negative effect on the
environment .because the
soil is degraded. They have
to clear land that could be
used for something else
and displace wildlife in the
process," Mr. Rodriguez
said.
The Organic Food Pro-
duction Act of 1990


required that the USDA
develop, national stan-
dards for organic products,
enforcable under the
National Organic Program.
"Anyone who gains a
certification must also
comply with third party
regulation," said Mr.
Rodriguez. "The USDA
uses accredited certifica-
tion agencies to do third-
-party verification, as well
as their own certification
to keep standards upheld."
Organic products cost
typically 10 to 30 percent
more than similar conven-
tional products. However,
that may not always be the
case.
Bringing the price of
organic food down will be
based on a number of
things and one is the com-
petition among larger
stores such as Publix,
Whole Food Market and
Wal-Mart.
The Department of Agri-
culture reported on May
22 that Wal-Mart stores
intend to keep the price of
its organic products no
more than 10 percent over
conventionally grown
products and will double
their organic offerings.
"I don't think that any-
one can predict what will
happen as far as costs, but
with places like Publix and
Super Wal-Mart getting
involved, I think prices will
go down," Mr. Rodriguez
said.
Mr. Stevens, Publix
media manager, said the
chain will be competitive
in the market.
They have seen excep-
tional growth and feel the
market is big enough for
everyone.
With less than 3 percent
of the total agriculture pro-
duced organically in the
United States, and only
14,188 acres producing
organic foods in Florida, it
looks like super stores
could be competitive, but
there's a lot of room for
growth.
"We need. to reclaim the
quality of our food supply,"
said Ms. Bennet. "It's inter-
esting. This trend wouldn't
have happened 20 years
ago, but now it seems the
population is ready."

Nutritionist speaks
Mother Nature's Pantry in
Palm Beach Gardens held a


free seminar with speaker Ted
Shaffer, a nutritionist for 20
years, on the benefits ofprobi-
otics lastWednesday.
Probiotics is a dietary sup-
plement that many nutrition-
ists claim have a healing effect
on the immune system
because of its containment of


beneficial bacteria.
"The seminar was great
People are eager to learn
about alternatives to antibi-

Do we need nighttime water police?

I was driving home on Monday, May 14, at 12:30 a.m.
and noticed the new flashing sign Juno Beach has put up,
"SEVERE WATER SHORTAGE, WATER RESTRICTIONS
WILL BE ENFORCED." But the funny thing about it is the
fact they were watering right behind it. I laughed.
But again, I was driving home at the same time on May
16, and here again the sign was flashing, and they were
watering again. I know this isn't a newly planted area.
This made me mad.
Why should a resident adhere to the law, when our local
government cannot? It was like they were taunting me.
Drive along U.S. 1 at night, and just shake your head at all
the violators. Maybe the water police should start check-
ing during the nighttime. Juno Beach (officials) can't even
read the sign they put up.
I have adhered to the water restrictions to a tee, but
would like to see a change in the rules, such as two times
a week, but only two hours as opposed to the current four
hours, one time a week. This would benefit residents with
smaller yards better.

Anthony R. Meriano, Juno Beach director of public
works, responds: According to the resident, he/she
observed the irrigation system operating at approximately
12:30 a. m. on two separate occasions. The location is the
grassed triangle-median area where the uno Beach Town
entrance sign is located on U.S. 1 at the Ocean Drive
intersection.
On the first date he/she observed the irrigation system
operating, it was runningduringa time the Town was
allowed to water under Phase II water restrictions. Their
second observation was during early morning hours on a
day with Phase III restrictions, and the system should have
been turned off.
Once Town personnel were notified the irrigation system
was operating at an improper time, the system was
immediately shut down. It has now been recalibrated to
turn on the watering zones at the location on Sundays,
between the hours of 12 a.m. to 8 a.m., the hours the Town
is allowed to water under Phase III water restrictions.
While we will monitor the timer's operation in the
future, we have also asked the police department to notify
public works should the system be found operating at any
time other than the Sunday hours.
This resident also expressed his/her desire to have the
Town revise watering hours to times different from those in
effect now. It should be noted that the water restrictions are
mandated by the South Florida Water Management
District, and the Town does not have the authority to alter
the days, hours or conditions during which water systems
can be operated. In fact, we are subject to large fines if we
don't enforce their rules.
Should residents have further questions regarding this
policy, they are urged to contact the South Florida Water
Management District at (800) 432-2045. Ifyou have any
additional questions or comments, please contact the Juno
Beach Department ofPublic Works at (561) 626-1122.

Life beyond tech stuff

I was just reading the rants and raves and want to
congratulate the 82-year-old woman who complained
about computer discrimination. I don't have a com-
puter either. Everyone just assumes you have one. I
didn't open a checking account until I was 62 and then
just to deposit my Social Security check. Believe me,
you can get along very well without these things.

Road too congested

On Loxahatchee and Seminole/ Pratt Whitney
Parkway we need the two-lane highway expanded to
four. There is too much traffic because of the new
school.

Post office problems

Here we go again with unacceptable management
practices at the post office.
I am a city carrier. I always hear customers com-
plaining that here are not enough clerks, there are
long lines in the lobby, and that the mail is being
delivered late.
The post office continues the practice of under-


staffing and refusing to hire necessary help to get the
job done correctly. Please don't blame the employees
who do their best every day. It is not their fault, and
they do try their best to provide customer service in
every way they can. Carriers work hard, and we are
proud to wear our blue uniforms. Our raises do not
coincide with stamp price increases. Our union
contract has been up for renewal since November
2006 and has been in negotiation since. It will be going
through arbitration in the next few months.
One of the big disagreements we have is the practice
of hiring unqualified help. We have seen what this
practice can do to mail service. Some of these contract
workers have not been delivering mail, taking it home
on Saturday and delivering it on Sundays, or not at
all. Some of them have been hired without even going
through security checks. They are hired for less pay
and no benefits. Do you want someone with those
credentials delivering your mail?
It is likely carriers will be out picketing some time in
June. We would appreciate support from our cus-
tomers. We know how important your mail is to you
and feel you should have qualified carriers ensuring
your delivery.

Guest worker program

Shut the borders, close the doors, and let no more in.
If they are here, get them and make them spend two
years in the service fighting for this country. If they
make it back alive, then maybe they can become
citizens.
Let them learn to speak English, put down the weed
whacker, and pick up a gun.

Pull up your pants

To the person who asked parents to "teach" our chil-
dren to pull up their pants; your comment sounds
facetious, bordering on obnoxious. You sound no better
than the children you write of.

-Immigration reform bill

I would like to make a comment on the U.S. Senate
and the immigration reform bill. I can honestly say that
at 55 years old and watching these politicians, I cannot
believe that they are so full of hot air.
All they want to do is hear themselves speak. This is
not a hard thing to get through their minds and their
brains.
Just close the borders, round everybody up who is
illegal and doesn't belong here, and send him or her
back to their country. Then let them come back the
right way.
It's not that hard. I just can't understand how these
people can stand there and bull crap us the way they
are doing. It is totally ludicrous that in this country, we
are paying these politicians this kind of money to do
hot air balloon acts.

Obese personnel

To the person who wrote of medical workers being
obese, I have noticed the very same thing. I wonder if it
is because of thankful patients bringing in cookies,
doughnuts and such, to show appreciation to the staff?
I also serve the public, and I'll tell you that is what


most people bring us. One time, a fellow brought in
frozen yogurt, and we have one other customer who
brings us bags of fruit. I feel those are much more help-
ful to maintain our health and energy levels in order to
serve the public better.


Go with the flow

In response to the rant entitled, "Would it be so bad?"
You must be living in a dream world. I guess you are as
old as I am, but I go with the flow. After I wrote my
article I thought the subject of "snowbirds" was closed.
This article of yours sounds like discrimination against
your own countrymen.
You must have plenty of money to be complaining
about making reservations three weeks ahead and the
roadways on Memorial Day. Your "own" Floridians sure
make good use of it. I guess they are richer than most
of us, able to pay such high prices for gasoline.
You can bet there will be lots of road rage going on.
Since your time has stood still for many years, let me
remind you that we live in the year 2007. Wake up.

Seniors can help

I am a senior, and I want to say something to other
seniors.
We can help out in this drought season. We can get up
and go out to water a tree, or the bushes or plants. These
are not going to come back. The grass eventually will
come back; it would only need seed to get that going
again.
If we lose these little trees, and these nice high hibiscus
bushes, it's going to take years to get them back again. So,
if you have extra water in your sink, or you've got some
bottled water left, go out and give that little bush a drink.
We can strive to not waste any water inside. I've cut the
water down in my bathroom sink. One just has to turn the
valve underneath the sink down halfway.
There is no need for that big amount of water coming
out of the faucet just to brush our teeth or wash our face.
We seniors have a lot more time than the younger
people do. They arebusy with the children, their jobs and
things like that. We can get out and help, and it would be
good exercise for us. Don't try to go out with a gallon of
water, just take a small amount of water, and make several
trips. Take a plastic container and fill it half full, so it won't
be too heavy
You'll enjoy it. If you have a little trouble walking, that's
OK. You'll make it, and the plants will appreciate it.
We can also try to save electricity. I started to reduce the
electricity in my bathroom. One doesn't have to go in and
turn the fan on, and have all the lights turn on. Don't do
that. Get a little, tiny boudoir lamp, and set it on the
counter, or a couple little small bulbs for the overhead
lamps.
The range can be turned off at least a minute and a
half earlier than normal. The heats still coming out
during that time, while you are still cooking things.
Use a nightlight in the bathroom and in the kitchen, so
when you go there for small things in the evening, you
don't turn on that big fluorescent light. You can put a little
nightlight on either side of the stove or on the wall.
Plan ahead with the refrigerator. Don't open and close it
all the time.
Have a clothes rack for drying personal clothes and
things.
Only run the dishwasher for full loads, if you use it at all.
I wash my dishes three times a day. It's easy.

Storm Season 2007



Inspect before so you don't pay later


BY KEVIN CROCILLA
Staff writer

Unfortunately for
Floridians, hurricanes hit
us where it hurts us the
most: the wallet.
Hurricanes can cause
damage to any part of a
house and it's important
to make sure that your
home can stand up to the
force and power that
some storms can exhibit.
Here are some home
inspection tips from the
Institute for Business and
Home Safety that can save
time and money when it
comes to protecting your
house. The IBHS is a non-
profit association that
engages in communica-
tion, education, engineer-
ing and research.
1. Protect all windows
and doors. Obviously, any
openings are going to be
the house's most vulnera-
ble points. Make sure that


all doors and windows are
completely fastened onto
the house and stable.
2. Closely inspect your
roof. Secure any loose
shingles. When shingles
are blown off, other loose
shingles around them can
come off as well, creating
a domino effect and much
more drastic damage. Any
loose shingles should be
reattached with roofing
cement.
Hurricanes do quite a
number on roofs and can
cause a lot of damage,
which leads to more
spending and more worry.
Duren roofing can alle-
viate some of that worry.
They recently moved from
Hobe Sound to Stuart and
have been in business in
South Florida for 10 years.
They do all kinds of
roofs,. including cedar
shake, tile, metal, etc.
They work mainly on a
referral basis and pride


themselves on doing the
job right.
"There's such a small
amount of integrity in the
construction and roofing
business," said owner Jon
Duren.
"If we say we're going to
do something, we do it.
We don't make promises
we can't keep, and we
don't oversell. We don't get
a deposit, and we're the
only roofing company I
know that has their own
showroom."
On tile roofs, Duren uses
poly foam, which is the
"Cadillac" of adhesion
systems. It has a 212 mile
(the holding strength of a
roof as the wind tries to lift
it off) per hour uplift rat-
ing. Most places require a
60 or a 90 rating.
Duren has gone through
three hurricanes with cus-
tomers who have this sys-
tem, and not one person
lost a single tile.


3. Seal cracks and leaks.
Water can get through
cracks easily, especially
when it's traveling at high
speeds. Make sure that all
outlets and edges of circuit
breaker panels and electri-
cal boxes are sealed as
well. This prevents power
outages, which can make
things worse.
4. Observe your sur-
roundings and limit
potential flying debris.
Keep all trees and shrub-
bery trimmed and neat.
Cut weak branches and
others that will possibly
have a sailing effect when'
the wind hits them.
Replace gravel or rock
with mulch. Get rid of
objects that can be moved
easily, such as large potted
plants or tables and
chairs.

Rants & Raves
From page A6
Look for dripping or leaky faucets, reduce oven use and
reduce air conditioning somewhat.
There are some shady times of the morning where
maybe it is not needed for an hour or so. That hour a day
will help as the month goes on.
Reduce the use of ceiling fans. They use a lot of electrici-
ty. Use small floor fans, instead.
Try not to turn on lights when they are not necessary.
Sometimes, it is just habit. We walk in a room and reach
over and turn on the light when we really don't need it.
Some of the large companies and malls with all those
spotlights on when the sun is still shining should think
about that, too. Many times that could be cut down by
several hours a day.
Different businesses could take it a little easier, and cut
some lights here and there, especially the car lots.
These are things that I have been thinking about, and.I
wanted to pass them along.

No amnesty

This is an alert to all American citizens. If you can still
read this paper, evidently it is still being printed in
English, but probably not for long. Hopefully, it will stay
English.
Call the capitol, call Washington, call your elected
officials: don't allow amnesty. This bill they are trying to
pass is an amnesty bill.
There should be no amnesty, no legalization for illegal
aliens and that is what they are. They broke the law of the
country. No amnesty should be granted.
I don't see people in jail that got busted for half of a
gram, or an ounce of pot getting amnesty.
These people came across the border and are illegals.
A vote will soon be taken on this bill. Call, let your voice
be heard. Don't let this bill be passed. No amnesty.

You're moving the columns

I have always loved reading Hometown News, espe-
cially the different columnists. However, in the last few
weeks, the entire layout of the paper has changed and I
never know where to go to read them.
I always turned to Grammy Guru first, and loved her
column as well as Compute This. Now, it's put who
knows where in the paper, even sometimes in what is
called the classified section. What's up with this? It sure
is a huge disappointment.
Now I sometimes don't even read the paper.

Editor's note: You are correct that Hometown News has
recently redesigned the B-section fronts to feature our
Dining & Entertainment stories and calendars more
prominently. Press apd space limitations often dictate the
resulting placement of our standing feature columns,
which does not always allow your favorite columns to be
placed next to each other under one heading, as they were
previously.
In such cases, the editors place columns on pages where
readers would logically expect to find them, i.e., 'Com-
pute This' on the business page, for example.

watering is OK


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

This is the eighth in a
. multi-part series submit-
ted by South Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict officials to help Palm
Beach County residents
cope with water restric-
tions.

Five or six years ago
drought conditions in
Palm Beach County were
almost as bad as they are
now.
When water restrictions
were imposed then,
homeowners virtually
stopped putting new,
plants in their gardens.
That need not be the case
this year.
"There was really no
need to stop planting
because new plants can
be watered to get them
established in the land-
scape," said Bill Schall,
Palm Beach County
extension agent.
Most homeowners
don't realize that there are
exceptions to the water
restrictions for all new
plantings.
"Some gardeners have
stopped planting new
trees and shrubs because
they mistakenly thought
they couldn't water
them," said Elise Ryan,
owner of Color Garden
Farms wholesale nursery.
"But it's not good for the
environment long-term if
everybody stops land-
scaping."
Hard-hit because of the
misunderstandings about


the water restrictions six
years ago, the state's
green industry has
planned ahead for this
summer.
The Florida Growers,
Nurseries and Landscap-
ers Association has joined
with Palm Beach County
Extension and the South
Florida Water Manage-
ment District to institute
GrowSmart, a program to
educate homeowners
about the best ways to
deal with drought land-
scaping.
"It's important to be
able to maintain land-
scapes, not only because
of the expense of replac-
ing them, but also
because of the benefits
plants offer," said Mr.
Schall. "They cool and
shade our homes. That
reduces energy costs.
They retain moisture in
the soil and help the rain
water percolation."
Even with Phase II or III
restrictions in place, new
trees and shrubs can still
be planted.
Rules allow additional
watering days and times
for new plantings for the
first 30 days to get their
roots launched.

For more information,
call the South Florida
Water Management Dis-
trict's water conservation

or (800) 662-8876 or the

U .I d ayJun .12 Pn,


Car dealership owners


are accountable


Congress passed a law
a few years ago that
really shook up
publicly owned compa-
nies. It's called Sarbanes-
Oxley, named after the
congressmen who spon-
sored the bill.
Basically, this law says
that the CEO and other
high-echelon management
of a publicly owned
company cannot get off the
hook from wrong doings
because they claim they
didn't know what their
employees were doing. I
believe the same rules
should apply to all busi-
nesses, even if their stock is
not publicly held. The boss
should always be held
accountable for the actions
of his employees, and this
should apply especially for
car dealerships.
Most of the employees
that customers come into
contact with in a car
dealership are paid on
commission. Those
employees get a percent-
age of the profit that. the
company makes on the
transaction.
Car sales people, service
sales people (also called
service advisors or assis-
tant service managers),
parts sales people and the
mechanical technicians
who work on your car, are
mostly all paid on commis-
sion.
This method of pay tilts
the relationship between
the customer and employ-
ee in somewhat of an
adversarial manner. The
employee wants the profit
to be as high as possible,
but the customer wants it
to be low.
In a car dealership that
has talented, fully engaged
and ethical management,
this potentially adversarial
relationship'is kept in a fair
balance. Without the
oversight of upper and
middle management and
careful hiring practices,
some employees will
exploit a customer to
increase his commission.
What brought the subject
of this column to mind was
a call I received yesterday
from a 78-year-old widow

SALON
THE FAMILIAR RING
OF TRUTH
The shinier and stronger your hair
looks, the younger you look. One way
to assess your hairs health is to stand
in front of a mirror with your clean, dry
hair pulled in front of your shoulders.
From a few feet away, you'll probably
be able to discern a line of
demarcation that runs around your
head, a few inches from the ends.
Otherwise, there may be white dots
that denote split ends. The more white
dots there are, or the higher the ring,
the more damaged the hair. The only
way to get rid of'this damaged hair is
to get a haircut up to the line of
damage, followed by a trim six to eight
weeks later.
SHealthy hair doesn't happen by
accident. You need to have routine
haircuts and use a quality shampoo
and conditioner. At JONATHAN T
SALON, we offer haircuts, hair color,
and permanent waves. Regardless of
the service you select, we use quality
hair care products to ensure the best
results- shiny, healthy hair. Call us at
(561) 626-1829 to schedule an
appointment. We are located at 4517
PGA Blvd. Business hours are Mon.,
10-4; Tues., Wed., Thur., 9-9; and Fri.
and Sat., 9-5. Gift certificates are ideal
presents for graduations, birthdays,


and other special occasions.
HINT: To reduce the number of split
ends, try to limit the number of times
you blow-dry or flatiron your hair.


EARL STEWART
On Cars


from Fort Pierce. She called
to thank me for writing my
column, and to tell me that
she wished she had read
some of my columns
before she bought her 2005
used Mazda.
This was the first car she
had bought on her own.
Her husband had always
taken on this responsibility.
She paid the dealership a
huge profit on her pur-
chase. She was sold a
maintenance package that
she believed cost only $25
but it really was $2,500. She
was rushed to sign the
papers at night because the
dealership was closing. In
the morning, when she
realized the mistake, she
drove back to the dealer-
ship and asked to back out
of the sale but was told it
was too late. She was told
she had signed all the
papers and that they had
already sold her trade-in,
even though she had not
given them the title. When
she asked to speak to the
general manager, three
different employees
identified themselves as
the general manager. I get a
lot of sad calls like this.
The owner of that
dealership should know
what's going on. I'm giving
him the benefit of the
doubt by saying that he
doesn't know, because if he
does know, it's even worse.
The owner should look at
the big picttire and the
long-term view of his
business. You can take
advantage of customers
and benefit in the short
run, but you eventually

Turtle nests OK despite erosion


bad reputation spreads far
enough.
Most of the bad things I
hear about car dealers
from their customers are
not illegal things. They are
simply unethical and not
the way one human being
should treat another.
Refusing to refund the
money of an elderly widow
after she realized that she
had been taken advantage
of is not illegal, but it sure
"stinks."
Jim Press is the top
executive for Toyota over
all of North America and he
is also the only non-
Japanese to occupy a place
on Toyota's board of
directors. He was quoted in
the book "The Toyota Way,"
by Jeffrey Liker, as saying,
"It's what you do for a
customer when you don't
owe him anything that is
the true measure of
character. It's like sticking
up for somebody who can't
defend himself."
I reallylike this quote and
I have it engraved on a
plaque, which I give out
each month to the employ-
ee who wins the "Above
and Beyond" award. This
award goes to an employee
who does something for a
customer above and
beyond what the customer
would have expected.
If you have a bad dealing'
with your car dealership,
Sdo your best to contact the
owner. This is impossible
with publicly held dealer-
ships such as AutoNation
and United Auto Group,
but you should be able to
talk to their general
managers.
If it's privately owned
dealership, don't give up
until you see the owner.

Earl Stewart is the owner
and general manager of

JUNO BEACH The
recent high surf, storm
and beach erosion
caused 50 to 75 percent
of sea turtle nests to be
damaged or washed
away in Juno Beach, said
officials of the Juno
Beach-based Logger-
head Marinelife Center.
"Though some nests
were lost to the recent
high surf, the overall
impact to the turtles
remain relatively small
because we are still in
the early part of the nest-
ing season," said Larry
Wood, curator at Logger-
head Marinelife Center.

t A th seven major
// storms forecasted
V for the season and
a 64 percent probability of
an east coast landfall, the
odds are we will experi-
ence some sort of tropical
activity.
With this in mind, it is
not too early to plan your
landscape so that in the
event of a storm, you don't
have to scramble to get it
ready. With careful plan-
ning, getting ready for a
storm does not have to be
so draining.

Clean up

The first thing you
should do before hurri-
cane season starts is to
trim trees and bushes.
Get rid of any foliage that
is dead or might be hang-
ing over your house. If you
have any dead or weak
trees from last year's
storms, cut them down so
they don't have a chance to
do damage this year.

Make a list

Take a tour of your yard
and make a list of items
that would be dangerous
to leave lying around.
This should include
patio furniture, loose gar-
den ornaments, small pot-
ted plants, yard torches,
arbors and even gas grills.
Use this list to know
what you will have to
move.
If you have a shed or
gazebo, you might want to
add tie downs to be sure
they stay put and don't
wind up in Kansas.
You can start early by
limiting what you keep out


in your yard during the
peak months of August
and September.
If you own a swimming
pool, you can throw all
your patio furniture into
the pool to help keep it
from traveling across the
state.

Wind-resistant plants
There are many plants
you can use that are attrac-
tive and hold up fairly well
during a hurricane. Hibis-
cus, plumbago, firecracker
plant, ixoria, and even my
roses seemed to hold up
very well during our past
hurricanes.
You may also want to
consider some native plant
varieties such as palmetto
bush, passionflower, azal-
ea bush, wax myrtle, live
Oak and Southern Magno-
lia.
Native plants are used to
the high winds that can hit
during hurricane season
since they have been
around our area for so
many years.

Salt resistant varieties
If you live near the
ocean, planting becomes
more of a challenge,
because you need to have
plants that are resistant to
salt spray.
Remember that a hurri-
cane can carry the ocean
mist far inland with its 70-
plus mile per hour winds.
Plant varieties, such as
Indian Hawthorne, saw
palmetto, confederate jas-
mine, society garlic,
daylily, pittisporum, olean-
der and Mexican petunia
do very well in areas where


Garden Nook


with Joe Zelenak


salt spray can be a prob-
lem. Gardenia plants also
can fare well with less than
25 percent damage and full
recovery after one growing
season.

Tree measurements

When planning your
landscape, if you are going
to plant large trees, you
should always keep the
distance from the tree to
the house greater than the
height of the tree when it is
full grown.
If you have any trees that
are weak or leaning, either
have them secured or
remove them if they are
within striking distance of
your home. Also, look for
exposed roots.
If the soil has been
washed away from the
roots of your trees, the root
structure may be weak-
ened and allow.the tree to


topple easily. Fill in these
areas with soil back to the
original ground level.
As you can see, with a
few common-sense tips
and some good planning,
you can have an attractive
and safe yard this hurri-
cane season.
Remember, your yard is
not the only place that
needs preparation before
hurricane season starts.
Have all your hurricane
supplies and plans in place
on or before June 1, the
date the official hurricane
season begins.

Cleaning up after a storm


he best way to clean
up your yard after a
storm is to be pre-
pared before one hits.
Make sure you have the
right tools and a good plan
of action to follow.
Here are some tips to
keep in mind.
Get a chain saw
Get a good quality chain
saw. Gas is preferred over
electric because they have
more power. Also, your
electricity may be out after
a storm. Unless you have a
generator, an electric saw
will be useless.

Survey the damage
Before cutting trees, be
sure to take a full survey of
the yard. Confirm that
there are no power lines


entangled in your work
area and that there are no
large, dangling limbs that
could fall and hit you once
you start working.
If a large tree needs to be
taken down, it is best to
leave that to an expert.
After our last storm in
2006, most of my tree
debris was already on the
ground and simply had to
be cut up and taken to the
curb.
Get at the little stuff
Once you have all the
large debris removed, cut
up and at the curb, the
next thing you should do is
re-survey your yard.
Look for other damage
that may have been hidden
by the larger tree branches.

When trying to clean up
small twigs and leaves
from an area that has step-
pingstones or gravel, a
great tool to use is a gas
blower.
I had a large garden area
covered with lava rock.
When I used a rake, I not
only got the debris, but
also the lava rock.
I brought out the trusty
gas blower and about 97
percent of the debris was
magically whisked away.
In fact, as a preliminary
task before raking, I suc-
cessfully removed a good
deal of debris from the


lawn area with the blower.
This made the next pass
with a regular garden rake
much easier.

Mulch the yard
Once you are done with
that, a pass with a
mulching lawn mower will
really put the finishing
touches.on the yard
Once your yard returns
to some kind of normalcy,
you can start planning
your yard revamping.

Fair
From page A7

The Hurricane Expo is
specifically designed to get
as much information to as
many people at one time
in one place and according
to the Red Cross, they are
expecting upward of
10,000 this year.
"People will walk away
with preparedness infor-
mation and how to set up
their hurricane kit, among
important other tips for
this upcoming season,"
said HeatherWiley, Greater
Palm Beach Area Chapter
community disaster edu-
cation coordinator.
The latest in technology
and information on every-
thing from shelters to
shutters, will also be part
of the expo.
"We want to teach peo-
ple -how to prepare their
hurricane kits and give
new tips on boarding up
their homes. We may even
have suggestions on vari-
ous government grants
that can give assistance for
those who cannot afford
hurricane shutters," said
Ms. Wiley.
One initiative the Palm
Beach Chapter of the Red
Cross is trying to put forth
is having an emergency
plan.
"Families should make
an emergency plan. It is so
important to know how to
find one another and to
have a meeting place," said
Ms. Wiley.
"Evacuation routes and
knowing whether you're in
a flood zone is also impor-
tant."
Ms. Wiley also said resi-
dents tourists and anyone
in the location of a hurri-
cane should prepare a hur-
ricane kit. A typical kit will
consist of batteries, 1 gal-
loh of water per person per
day, non-perishable food,
blankets, duct tape, weath-
er radio or portable televi-
sion, a dry change of cloth-
ing, charged cellular
phone and important doc-
uments, such as a FPL bills
and insurance documents.
"It's supposed to be a
very busy hurricane sea-
son," said Ms. Wiley. "You
can never be to prepared. I
feel Floridians have been a
bit too complacent and
there is always something
to learn from these events,
even if you think you've
already heard it."
A panel of experts will
speak periodically at the
expo and address issues
from tracking and fore-
casting hurricanes to
preparing Florida land-
scaping and homes for
severe weather. Topics will
also give participants
information on homeown-
ers insurance and a look
ahead into the expectation
of the current hurricane
season.
"We'll be looking back at
Jeanne, Wilma and Francis
and looking ahead for
what to expect this year,"
said Mike Lyons, meteorol-
ogist for Palm Beach Gar-
dens-based WPBF Chan-
nel 25.
'"They are predicting
stronger and more well-
formed hurricanes this
season because El Nino is
on its way out and because
La Nina is on its way in."
The Greater Palm Beach
American Red Cross Chap-
ter may also feature a Red
Cross disaster education
simulator. The simulator
will give residents who
have not experienced a
hurricane the idea of what
is in store during a storm.
"Emergency managers


will be on site so. people
can ask questions and find
out if they are in a flood
zone," said Mr. Lyons.
"For some people, they
just like to tell their story. I
guess it's almost therapeu-
tic. Being able to chat with
people and give them a
sense of how to correctly
prepare has made these
events valuable for a lot of
people," he said.


Season
From page A7
The StormReady pro-
gram provides America's
community leaders and
emergency managers with
the skills and tools to help
strengthen local safety


programs.
In Palm Beach County,
these tools include a 24-
hour emergency coordi-
nating center, a NOAA
weather radio transmitter,
a weather information
network and an emer-
gency alert plan that
includes amateur radio


operators.
Americans cope with an
average of six deadly hur-
ricanes, 10,000 Thunder-
storms, 5,000 floods and
1,000 tornadoes each year.
Nearly 90 percent of all
presidentially-declared
disasters are weather
related, leading to roughly


500 deaths per year and
approximately $14 billion
in damage.
No community is storm
proof, but with the assis-
tance of the National-
Weather Service's Storm-
Ready program,
communities can be pre-
pared.

Camps


From page A1
Ms. Hensler said.
Bill Egan, special events
supervisor, is currently
working on setting up trips
on Aug. 1, 8 and 15. They
will all probably be to
Orlando, Ms. Hensler said.
Children allowed to go
will most likely be in the
age range of 7 to 12, she
said.
"We are looking for'peo-
ple to volunteer as chap-
erones on those trips. We
need about six to eight
people, because we only
want to put a group of
four or five kids with each
person," Ms. Hensler said.
The Summer Day camp
offers four two-week long


sessions, and the Super
Kids camp offers two four-
week long sessions, Ms.
Hensler said.
The Super Kids camp
has 24 slots, and the Sum-
mer Day camp has 65
slots.
"Registration will stay
open until all the slots are
full, and the only camp
that is full (right now) is
the 3- and 4-year-old sec-
tion of the Super Kids
camp. We still have room
for the 5- and 6-year-
olds," Ms. Hensler said.
"Also, only one session,
June 18-29, is full for the
Summer Day camp," she
said.


The Village's recreation
department attempted to
branch out this year and
offer an Arts 'n Motion
camp, which would have
taught children ages 3 to 5
about dance, music and
art, and a Curtains Up Per-
forming Arts camp, which
would have taught chil-
dren ages 6 and up ballet,
jazz, tap, hip-hop, cheer-
leading and musical the-
ater. However, those two
camps were cancelled due
to a lack of interest, Ms.
Hensler said.

NORTH PALM BEACH COUNTY


CHAMBER OF COMMERCE


Welcome to the Chamber


iyouing

pirofessiioini

OF NORTH PALM BEACH COUNTY CHAMBER OF COI


Young Professionals Celebrate One-Year
Anniversary
This month marks the one-year anniversary
of the Young Professionals (YP) of the North
Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce!
Over the past year, the group has developed
tremendously through the various exciting
projects and now boasts around 150 members.
With one year of experience under their belt,
YP has now designed a solid program of work
to better serve its members in the upcoming
year.
The group's mission is."to create an
environment for young professionals to build
relationships, get involved in the community :'
and develop personally and professionally."
Keeping true to this mission, YP will focus on
three topics: social networking,
personal/professional development and
community outreach.
"There was a pent up demand and an interest
for the group right out of the gate," Kerry Perl,
YP co-chair, said. 'We had 80 or 90 members
within the first several months and we
garnered the support of some local businesses
as well, including five corporate memberships."
The group is expanding its social networking
beyond monthly mixers by adding many social
events to build relationships among members.
These will include the Sports Series events
(road trips to Marlins, Panthers and Dolphins
games, joining local sports leagues, etc.), a
summertime turtle walk, a Hummer test track
trip and a "YP Tour" golf tournament.


The group also encourages the
personal and professional
development of young
professionals in the area and has
aes expanded its program to include
S one top-notch speaker each
quarter, in addition to various
MMERCE member-only developmental
programs. These will mold the YP
Insider Series, giving members the
opportunity to take a behind the
scenes tour of a local business or even gain
personal advice from local experts.


"In the next year,
the only place
to go is up,"
said YP co-
chair Patrick
Mariani. 'We
have our
whole year
planned for
next year and
expect our
membership to
continue to
grow. We want
to get more in-
depth in
personal and
career
development."


YP ,believes in a -.
giving back to .
the community and
has created a community outreach program.
The group will maintain its Annual Holiday
Adopted Families project, hold occasional
beach clean-ups and support other
philanthropic efforts that arise throughout the
year.
Membership dues are $75 annually. To cater
more to their members, YP has created a vast
array of member benefits. Not only do
members get a discounted rate to all events,
but the group has created many more
member-only events, in addition to providing


YP T-shirts. The launch of its brand new Web
site, www.ypnpbc.com, has created the
opportunity for a more close-knit group. Each
member has a profile on the Web site,
including a picture and personal bio, and will
be able to communicate with each other
through the site's blog. The weekly e-newsletter
will also keep members connected by enabling
YP to post information about what the group is
doing and provide a platform for members to
share their current happenings.
Most of the members age in
Strange from 20
- -- to 40 years,
but, as Mariani
stated, 'We're
Snot going to
S I card you at
the door. If
You're older
than 40 and
are still
looking to
grow
professionally,
it's definitely
something to
take
advantage
of. After all,
age is all in
Sthe mind."
Added Perl,
"I believe its about a group of people
who want to come together and strive to
better themselves on a path toward, self-
actualization. If we can get more young people
aware of the issues, build relationships, be
successful and meet other like-minded people,
we'll make a difference in our community.
There's a big factor here. We're becoming more
and more dynamic."

'Prodigy' brings her


art to the Gardens


BY DANIEL SHUBE
Entertainment writer
PALM BEACH .GAR-
DENS Many children
enjoy art at a young age,
but not many are consid-
ered to be a prodigy by
experts worldwide.
Alexandra Nechita, who
is only 22 years old, has
already been recognized as
one of the most talented
young artists in the world.
She appeared at the Went-
worth Gallery in The Gar-
dens Mall on Saturday,
May 19.
Ms. Nechita was only 2
when she began drawing,
and was painting in oils
and acrylics on canvas by
the time she was 7.
"Painting is my first
love," she said. "I also enjoy
other art forms, such as
sculpture, drawing and
watercolor."
Ms. Nechita, who was
born in Romania, has had
many of her drawings
exhibited.
"I've painted everything
I've wanted over the years,"
she said. "More abstract
work is fun, not so styl-
ized."
Where does an artist go
when she. has accom-


polished so much at such a
young age?
"More brushwork and
color ... it's more about
emotions," said Ms. Nechi-
ta.
"I enjoy getting out to the
galleries," she said,
appearing to be at ease
chatting with her admirers.
"It is nice to hear what my
collectors say about my
work. It is exciting."
Her modernist abstract
work has been compared
to that of Picasso.
Collectors were excited
to purchase her work, even
at prices of more than
$200,000 for acrylics on
canvas.
For those on tighter
budgets, the gallery had
lithographs for under
$6,000. In years to come,
these works of art might
someday be excellent
investments.
The works of Ms. Nechita
will remain on display at
the Wentworth- Gallery,
and can be specially
ordered.
The Wentworth Gallery is
located at The Gardens
Mall on PGA Blvd. in Palm
Beach Gardens. For more
information call (561) 624-
0656.

U unbelievable as it may
seem, hurricane
season is here.
Last year was a blessing,
but we'll never forget '04
and '05.
Living without all the
comforts of home is difficult
to impossible. Maybe this
article will give you some
ideas to help you get
through it.
We all know you must
stock up on water, since no
power means no water.
That Internet warning
against freezing bottled
water was untrue. When a
hurricane is coming, pack
your freezer with bottled
water or bottles of water. A
full freezer will keep foods
colder longer.
Liquid expands when
frozen. If using glass jars, fill
to only 1 inch from the top.
If you're like me, you have
at least a dozen empty
gallons in the garage just
ready to fill with water.
There is probably some
condensation, as well as
harmful bacteria trapped
inside.
Refilling a gallon over and
over is fine as long as
months haven't gone by. If it
has, fill the old gallon jug
with hot tap water to which
you have added 1/4 tea-
spoon chlorine bleach; let
sit for 10 minutes. Shake
vigorously. Pour out water
and wash and rinse several
times until no bubbles
appear. Clean the tops the
same way.
When storing the gallons,
do not cover. Place a towel
across the top and let
remaining moisture evapo-

rate. Dry tops and place
them in a plastic bag. If this
is too much trouble, buy
fresh gallons of water and
toss the old ones.
Make sure your grill's gas
tank is full and have a back-
up tank just in case.
If charcoal is your choice,
buy early and buy plenty.
Consider buying a
portable tabletop stove that
is powered by cans of
butane fuel.I have one and
believe me, it was a lifesaver.
Save your good pots and
pans. Check out thrift stores
or garage sales for old pots
to use on your gas or
charcoal grill.
Keep a lookout for battery-
powered fans; they'll proVe
to be life- savers.
The most perishable foods
are ground meat, seafood,
poultry and pork.
Beef steaks and roasts will
keep longer since they're
aged before you buy them;
and grilling will kill bacteria.
If freezer foods are still
cold, use them; if warm,
toss.

approaches, don't stock up
on great buys, buy only
what's necessary.
The way you package
foods for the freezer will
determine how long they
will stay cold. Leave meat in
the store package, wrap in
foil, sealing tightly and then
use plastic wrap or bags. For
other meats that are not pre-
packaged, wrap in butcher
paper then foil and lastly,
plastic.
Do the same with frozen
vegetables and fruit.
Anything that is made with
vinegar, such as salad
dressing, mustard, pickles,
ketchup can survive without
refrigeration.
I can't believe I'm saying
this, but stock up on jarred
spaghetti sauce, especially
those made with meat, it's
wonderful on polenta.
Buy skim milk powder and
quarts of milk sold on (non-
refrigerated) store shelves.
They're hermetically sealed
and need no refrigeration.
Stock up on evaporated.
milk, canned tuna, canned
chicken, canned baby
clams, clam juice, canned
broth, soups, Italian grated
cheese, packaged American
cheese, every kind of
canned dinners and
vegetables you can think of,
canned fruits, potatoes
(fresh and canned), onions,
fresh garlic, peanut butter,
jelly, instant rice; instant
potatoes, Ramen noodles
and of course, bread.
Quick tip: Prior to a storm,
cook assorted pastas until al
dente, rinse in cold water
and freeze. To use, simply
heat water on the grill and
add pasta to heat.
One of the perks of being a
food columnist is the free
books you receive from local
authors. Daphne
Nikolopoulos is author of
"The Storm Guide," which
tells how to create extraordi-
nary meals without electric-
ity. The book contains very
unusual and delicious
sounding choices. The book
is available at Target and
most bookstores and online


at www.amazon.com or at
Pineapple Press, (800) 746-
3275.

Dinner ideas
Linguini with clams.
Campfire stew.
Chicken curry made with
instant rice.
Creamed tuna on toast.
Salmon croquettes in a
cheese sauce.

Additions to meats
Potato pancakes with
applesauce.
Potato croquettes made
with instant potatoes.
Polenta (corn meal
mush), which comes in a
tube similar to rolled pork
sausage and does not need
refrigeration.

WHITE CLAM SAUCE
Serves two to three
A delicious clam sauce
that can be prepared in less
time than it takes to heat the
pasta.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive
oil
4 large cloves garlic
1 bottle (8 ounces) clam
juice
1 (10-ounce) can baby
clams
1 (7 ounces) canned

1/2 teaspoon black
pepper
Few shakes crushed red
pepper
Several sprigs fresh
parsley, chopped or 1
tablespoon dried
Cooked and heated
linguini or spaghetti
Peel and chop garlic,
reserving half.
NOTE: The longer garlic
cooks, the more flavor it
loses; therefore, we will start
our sauce with half the garlic

and add the rest at the end
to get the flavor we want.

clams, liquid from mush-
rooms, oregano and the
peppers.

to-coOk polenta is a must.

Dentist supports alliance


for children with cancer


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

NORTH PALM BEACH
- Local dentist Scott
Duff recently presented
a check to the Cancer
Alliance of Help and
Hope to assist kids with
cancer. The funds will be
distributed through the
Smiles for Life Cam-
paign, sponsored
through the Crown
Council Dental Associa-


tion's annual campaign
to assist kids with can-
cer. It has raised $2,900
this year.
To support the smiles
campaign, Dr. Duff is
offering professional
teeth whitening services
throughout the month
of June at a reduced
rate. One hundred per-
cent of the fee will be
distributed to the Can-

Through dentist's con-
tributions, smiles cam-
paigns have raised more
than $20 million since
1998.
Scott Duff's dental
office is located at 712
U.S. Hwy. 1 in North
Palm Beach.

(Syndicated News) Every artist's inspira-
tion is unique. It could be waves crashing
against a shore, a chance encounter with a
stranger on the street in a foreign city. It
could be a series of events or a passing
mood. While the nature of inspiration is
individual, one thing holds true: all artists
are affected by their surroundings. For
Belisi Fashions (www.belisi.com) president
and founder Peter Belisi, inspiration came
from a job that was anything but expected.
"After earning a degree in economics,
landing a job at Merrill Lynch and finally
leaving the corporate world to start an
Internet advertising business of my own, I
fell on hard times," says Belisi. "I took a
bartending job in Palm Beach, Florida to
support my family. Fortunately, the people
I met there led me to bigger ideas and big-
ger dreams."
Serving Palm Beach's wealthiest and
most elite residents on a daily basis, he
developed the idea for a luxury accessories
brand based on the stylish fashions seen on
his high-profile clientele.
"I began emulating the clients I was serv-
ing from behind the bar," Belisi says. "I
took pride in never wearing the same tie
twice. When my co-workers and clients
noticed my taste in ties and started asking
me for fashion advice, I decided to parlay
my fashion sense into a business."


Now the owner of Belisi, a luxury lifestyle
brand specializing in Italian silk ties,
scarves and other accessories, this former
bartender has experienced success previ-
ously reserved for the customers he served.
"The Belisi brand unites the luxury and
prestige of Palm Beach with Italian beauty
and sophistication," says Belisi. "Our prod-
ucts are meant to give people a complete
look, those refined touches that take per-
sonal fashion to a higher level. Starting a
business in the fashion industry always is a
risky venture but fortunately it has paid off
for me."
Never one to forget his past, Belisi donates
a percentage of each sale to those in need.
"Giving back to the community is what
Belisi was created
for in the first
place," Belisi
states.
"I built my busi-
ness on the prin-
ciples of good liv-
ing, and giving
back is a large
part of that. Great
style, quality
accessories, and
community sup-
port truly defines
the good life."

An Open Letter to Florida Car Dealers.
Eliminate the "Dealer Fee".'


Fellow Florida Car Dealers, if you don't
know me, I should tell you that I don't profess
to be some "holier than thou" car dealer who
was always perfect for the past 38 years.
When I look at some of my past advertising
and sales tactics, I am not always proud.
But I have evolved as my customers have
evolved. My customers' expectations, level
of education and sophistication are much
higher today. Your customers are no different.
My remarks are made sincerely and with a
positive intent toward you and your custom-
ers I am nol trying to tell you
Icw I o run 'youi business. I "''f' CU
am suggesting a change that
will reward both you and your expectat
cuj-lorners

Virtually every car dealer OJ eauca
in Florida add-s a charge to

to ner:arly 11 000 This extra

many slates including California, but is still
legal in Florida The reason you charge this
loe is simply to increase the price of the car
and your pr.itr in such a manner that it is not

wrong I used to charge a dealer fee ($495)
and when I stopped charging it a few years

Now, here is the good news. After eliminat-
ing the dealer fee my profit per car did drop
by about the amount of the dealer fee, but
my customers realized I was now giving them
a fair shake and quoting a complete out-the-
door price with no "surprises". And the word
spread. My volume of car sales began to rise
rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred
dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot
more cars. I was and am selling cars to many
of your former customers. My bottom line
has improved, not because I eliminated the
dealer fee, but becadte I was
toners' able to earn the trust of more
customers in buying their new
ons, evel or used car. You can do the
same.


tion and Why am I writing this letter?
I'm not going to tell you that
tion are I think of myself as the new
"sheriff' that has come to
er today." "clean up South Florida". In
fact, I am well aware that this
letter is, to some extent, self-
serving. Many people will read this letter and
learn why they should buy a car from me,
and not you. And, I am also aware that most
dealers who read this will either get angry and
ignore it or not have the courage to follow my
lead. But maybe you will be the exception. If
you have any interest in following my lead,
call me anytime. I don't have a secretary and
I don't screen any of my phone calls. I would
love to chat with you about this.

Ace winding his way



through the minors


BY KEVIY CROCILLA
Sports writer


JUPITER Making the
jump from high school
*baseball to the minor
leagues can bring former
superstars back down to
earth.
Jupiter Hammerheads
pitching ace Chris Volstad
is finding that out as he
goes through the ups and
downs that this level of
play can deliver.
"Everyone can play. In
high school, you could get


away with making mis-
takes against the bottom
part of the order. Here,
everyone's a No. 3 and No.
4 hitter. You have to stay
focused," he said.
Volstad, a former stand-
out pitcher for Palm
Beach Gardens High
School, is a righty with a
nice low 90s fastball. His
6-feet, 8-inch frame
should make sane hitters
squirm, but the 20-year-
old Volstad said opposing
hitters aren't afraid of his
size.

"No, I don't think they
get intimidated. Being tall
is definitely an advantage
though, because they're
seeing the ball from a dif-
ferent angle. It's coming
from way up high so I
think that helps me out,"
he said.
Volstad was Gardens
superstar in 2005. He was

PALM BEACH GARDENS
- All of the blood, sweat
and tears the Dwyer Pan-
thers shed after school at
practice didn't pay off in
their spring game against
Pahokee last Friday.
Dwyer lost 14-3 in an
uninspiring game in which
they sputtered on offense
and committed critical
errors that kept them out
of the end zone.
The re-emergence of Fri-
day night football seemed
to give Dwyer's Blum sta-
dium a charge that hadn't
been there since last foot-
ball season.
The place was packed
with fans from both
schools, and it was evident
people were excited about
football again.
But, this was the only
high school football game
they'll see for months, and
Dwyer's performance
probably won't leave a
lasting impression on the
home fans.
Dwyer had a few


chances to put more
points on the board, but
they made mistakes at the
wrong times.
Late in the third quarter,
junior quarterback Brad
Wallace made a great run,
in which he eluded several
tacklers and ended up tak-
ing the ball to the 3-yard
line. But a block in the
back penalty negated the
play, and then the Pan-
thers got called for a per-
sonal foul. That took them
out of field goal range for
kicker Daniel Riddle, who
scored Dwyer's only points
on a 36-yard field goal in
the second quarter.
Dwyer head coach Jack
Daniels was at a loss for
words after the game.
Clearly, this was not one of
his favorite performances
by his team.
"We can't have mistakes
like that. We're not gonna
win when we do stuff like
that, especially against a
good team with a good
defense like this," he said.
Pahokee's offense, on the

other hand, seemed to
be clicking. The Blue
Devils were led by sen-
ior quarterback Antho-
ny Sheppard, who
gained 283 yards and a
touchdown.
He seemed poised as
he moved his offense
down the field, com-
pleting many short
passes to his receivers.
Dwyer, on the other
hand, hasn't had a
standout receiver since
Will Brown went down
in game two of last year
with an ankle injury.
The offense, which is a
two-quarterback sys-
tem run by senior David
Pittman and Wallace,
relies heavily on run-
ning the ball. Halfback
Donald Russell had a
standout second half
last season where he
emerged as the starting
back, but he didn't get
much blocking Friday
night.

Outlook

Dwyer will most like-
ly come around in
time for the start of the
season. They survived
without a legitimate
threat at receiver all
last season, making it
to the regional quar-
terfinals.
Donald Russell is an
excellent back and
quarterback, David
Pittman has one more
year of experience
under his belt. Also,
the athleticism of
Dwyer's other quarter-
back, Bradley Wallace,
is dangerous enough
to keep defenses wor-
ried in the red zone.

as the 16th pick overall by
the Florida Marlins and
played a year for the lower
A ball club, the Greens-
boro Grasshoppers,
before graduating to the
Hammerheads, which are
a triple A club.
It's been an up-and-
down year for him and the
Hammerheads in general.
His record is 3-5 with a
5.24 ERA and Jupiter is 21-
29 and in second to last
place in the Florida State
League East division.
But Volstad realizes
that's the way it goes in
baseball: when you're hot,
you're hot and the same
thing applies when a team
is cold.
"Right now we're in a
tough spot. We have a
good team. We were
recently leading the
league in defense. The
hitting looks good. It
sucks being 3-5, but all I
can do is just try to exe-
cute my pitches," he said.
Volstad also mentioned
something that everyone
talks about. Roger Dean
Stadium is a big ballpark.
Although it's 325 and
335 feet at the corners, it's
380 feet and 375 feet at
right-center and left-cen-
ter. And dead centerfield
is 400 feet. That's a major
league-sized field. It was
designed with the St.
Louis Cardinals and the
Florida Marlins in mind.
Both teams use the stadi-
um as home base during
Major League spring
training.
If that weren't enough,
the wind almost always
blows in at Roger Dean.

out of the middle,
because unless it's a
bomb, it's not gone.
Luckily, Volstad doesn't
hit, but he mentioned this
has taken away from
Jupiter's offense some-
what.
Although the Hammer-
heads have hit a rough
patch, Volstad sounds sin-
cere when he said the
guys are just waiting to
get on a roll.
"We all know each other
pretty well. A lot of us
came up from Greensboro
together. We all know
we're a good team. Some-
times you just have to
wait to get rolling," he


said.
As for his future, Volstad
isn't sure. He explained
that the coaches don't say
much to the players
regarding their status.
"I just go out and pitch.
I'll stay focused-on pitch-
ing and they'll make the
decision," he said.
Volstad said he wants to
move through the ranks
as fast as possible, but for
now, he's happy where he
is. He gets to sleep in his
own bed at night at his
home in Palm Beach Gar-
dens.
"It's nice coming home
and having family
around," he said.

American Red Cross combines


efforts to keep residents safe


during hurricane season 2007


This year, as never before in the
history of our local American
Red Cross chapter, we are
taking extraordinary efforts to
make sure our residents are as
prepared as they can be for what
could be a devastating 2007 hurri-
cane season.
For the first time ever, we have
combined the resources of the
American Red CtGs Martin,
Greater Palm B e North Treasure
Coast, Space Coast chapters, the
American Red Cross Coast to Coast
chapter and Hometown News to
bring you this official American Red
Cross hurricane preparation
tabloid.
These combined efforts to protect
and inform our residents span 15
countiesand impacts hundreds of
thousands of our friends and


neighbors.
Thanks to the
efforts of Home-
town News, this
informational
guide is being
distributed to
more of our
residents than
has ever been
done before via a
newspaper
publication.
We send our J.B. Hunt
special thanks to Hometown News
for making this joint effort possible.
For more than 125 years, the
American Red Cross, supported by
its loyal volunteers, has provided
relief to victims of disaster and
helped people prevent, prepare for
and respond to emergencies


around the world.
We have, unfortunately, seen first-
hand the devastating destruction
caused by multiple hurricanes
impacting our region.
In each disaster, the American
Red Cross has been there to give aid
and comfort as soon as conditions
were safe.
Our combined Red Cross efforts
were responsible for feeding hun-
dreds of thousands of people
throughout east and central Flori-
da. Our generous donors respond-
ed as well, making sure that the
American Red Cross was there not
only for hurricanes, but for disas-
ters large and small throughout the
year.

AMERICAN RED CROSS _7 Fi dy:, Jn::e 12,


Message
From page 3
brewed in the Atlantic in 2005. We
were lucky in 2006 with only five
hurricanes and five tropical storms,
none of which severely impacted
our region.
Predictions for 2007 call for a very
active storm season. That is why
the information in this tabloid is
vitally important to everyone.
By joining forces, our combined
American Red Cross chapters are
multiplying our efforts to create an
even higher level of awareness and
preparedness for hurricane season
2007.
Please read the information in
this tabloid and use it wisely to
make your hurricane preparations.
Keep this as a reference; it could
help to save your life or the lives of
loved ones. Pay careful attention to
the lists of materials you will need
to build your own hurricane kit.
Apply the many tips and Red Cross
advice offered on safety to your
personal situation. Reference the
list of Red Cross hurricane shelters
and evacuation routes to plan how
you will react when hurricane
advisories and warnings are posted
for your area. Remember, Red Cross


hurricane shelters are to be used as
a last resort.
Our mission is to encourage
communities throughout the
regions we serve to prepare for
disaster before it strikes.
Families who have taken steps to
get ready beforehand, such as
stocking up on nonperishable food,
water and other supplies, suffer far
less than those who did not prepare
at all or waited until the last minute
to prepare.
This publication is also a
reminder to our residents that the
American Red Cross will be there in
the time of an emergency.
From fires to hurricane recovery,
the Red Cross is the first to respond
with relief and the last to leave.
This year, as never before, we urge
you to volunteer to help your
friends and neighbors in the after-
math of a disaster.
With hurricane season drawing
near, volunteers are needed to
provide assistance with the Red
Cross. Your local American Red
Cross needs nurses (LPNs and
RNs), damage assessment team
members, family service interview-


ers and more.
Volunteers must go through
training, so please sign up now with
your local Red Cross Chapter.
Finally, from all of the American
Red Cross chapters participating in
this historical joint venture, we urge
you to maintain your strong finan-
cial support of the American Red
Cross.
You, the American people, have
been the solution to previous
disasters to strike our communities.
Without your support; in the after-
math of a disaster and throughout
the year, it would be impossible to
provide the immediate response
that is the hallmark of the Red Cross.
After reading the information in
this tabloid your local American Red
Cross urges you to get a kit, make a
plan and be informed.
Following the guidelines and
advice in this publication may
possibly save your life and that of
your loved ones.

-JB Hunt, executive director,
American Red Cross, Greater Palm
Beach Area Chapter


Mission
From page 3
on meeting people's immediate
emergency disaster-caused needs.
.When a disaster threatens or
strikes, the Red Cross provides
shelter, food, and health and men-
tal health services to address basic
human needs.
In addition to these services, the
core of Red Cross disaster relief is
the assistance given to individuals
and families affected by disaster to
enable them to resume their nor-
mal daily activities independently.
The Red Cross also feeds emer-
gency workers, handles inquiries
from concerned family members
outside the disaster area, provides
blood and blood products to dis-
aster victims and helps those
affected by disaster to access
other available resources.
Local disaster response is
organized by each chapter
through a disaster action team.
National disaster response is coor-
dinated by Red Cross headquar-
ters in Washington, D.C., through
the disaster services human
resources system.

ofl acitirc r success


BY ANNE CHECKOSKY
Deputy managing editor
It's tempting to think the "other
guy or gal" is making that much-
needed donation to the Red Cross,
but the truth is, disaster can strike
anyone at anytime.
And the Red Cross must be ready
to respond, not only during hurri-
canes, but when fires, floods and
other natural disasters affect Palm
Beach County residents.
That's why year-round donations
are a critical part of the Red Cross
operating budget, said Ryan
Cairns, director of financial devel-
opment for the Greater Palm
Beach Area Chapter.
A monetary donation, "is the
most efficient way to donate," he
said.
Donations support each local
chapter's disaster relief fund,
which allows Red Cross volunteers
and officials to provide food,


housing and clothing to victims.
Every 48 hours disaster strikes
somewhere, said Mr. Cairns, and
without the generosity of the
American public, the Red Cross
wouldn't be able to do what it does
best: help people in their hour of
need.
The Red Cross is privately fund-
ed. Local chapters do not receive
funds from governmental agencies
or other organizations.
"We are totally dependant on
private donations," said Mr.
Cairns.
Now that hurricane season is
here, it's even more critical for the
Red Cross to keep donations
steady, since there's no way to pre-
dict if or when a hurricane might
hit, he said.
Luckily, there are multiple ways
to donate to the Red Cross, includ-

BY KEVIN CROCILLA
Staff writer
Floridians know that when a
hurricane hits, we have to act
fast.
If you don't plan ahead and pro-
tect yourself, you or your home
could be considerably damaged.
As hurricane threats persist, the
need to have protection is neces-
sary. But no one likes lugging big,
heavy shutters 'around, so they
need to be maneuverable. And it
doesn't hurt if the shutters look
good as well.
There are three important fac-
tors to consider when determin-
ing which shutters to use: price,
level of protection and ease of

Prepare for hurricane with kit


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

With a potential disastrous hurricane
that may be as strong as a Category 5,
the American Red Cross is urging area
residents to begin preparing for the
potential of disaster now.
Families can and do cope with poten-
tial disasters by preparing in advance
and working together as a team.
Knowing what to do is your best pro-
tection and your responsibility.
The National Weather Service, the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency and the American Red Cross
urge each and every family to develop a
family disaster plan. The key to pre-
paredness is having a plan. Here are the
steps to follow to create and implement
a family disaster plan:
Gather information about hazards
that would be created by the hurricane
in your area by contacting your local
American Red Cross, Emergency Man-
agement officials or the NationalWeath-
er Service. Learn your community's
warning signals and evacuation plans.


Meet with your family to create a plan.
Discuss the information you have gath-
ered and why it is important to prepare
for a hurricane. Plan to share responsi-
bilities and work together as a team.
Ask an out-of-state friend to be your
family contact for everyone to call if the
family gets separated for any reason
during the hurricane. After a hurricane,
it is often easier to call long distance.
Have a plan for your pets. Be aware
that pets are not allowed in American
Red Cross shelters. Other arrangements
should be secured beforehand.
Take the time now to put together a
disaster supplies kit. Your kit should
include enough supplies to meet your
needs for at least three days. Store these
supplies in sturdy, easy-to-carry, water-
resistant containers, such as backpacks
or duffle bags. It also is a good idea to
keep a smaller kit in the trunk of your
car.
Your 'disaster supplies kit should
include:
A three-day supply of water (one gal-

about all giving vehicles.
Mr. Cairns also wants the public
to know the Palm Beach County
chapter also accepts in-kind dona-
tions of items such as ready-to-eat
meals, detergent and pallets of
water.
"Detergent is especially critical
for people affected by disaster," he
said.
Financial donations allow the
chapter to get direct relief to vic-
tims, whether it's putting them up
at a local hotel for the night or
making sure they get a hot meal,
he said.


So, to prepare for hurricane sea-
son 2007, Palm Beach County resi-
dents might want to add one more
thing to their list: a donation to the
local Red Cross chapter, because
no one can predict when, where or
to whom the next disaster might
strike.

Inside the 'war room' during a hurricane


BY MICHELLE GENTILE
Staffwriter
Hurricanes begin their lives as
diminutive gatherings of unorgan-
ized, cloud storms that grow into
well-organized storms threatening
lives and leaving a destructive- foot-
print along the way.
As Floridians apprehensively enter
into another hurricane season, they
can feel assured that the Office of
Emergency Management has 'been
preparing all year long in the event a
hurricane again touches down in
Palm Beach County.
The Division of Emergency Man-
agement is responsible for reducing
the influence of potential disasters
and are continuously in the planning
and coordinating stages of operations
to help deal with any type of disaster.
"How it works is the division of
emergency management sets up .a
emergency operations center or an
EOC for each county," said Mark Gog-
gin, disaster operations coordinator
for the Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter of the American Red Cross.
"In this EOC, management has the
responsibility to work with all other


organizations to control disaster
issues. The Red Cross works in con-
junction with each EOC to help com-
municate these immediate needs of
the community."
Although each chapter of the Red
Cross works with the Department of
Emergency Services, they also have
their own operations room.
After a hurricane, the Red Cross is
usually first on the scene, and begins
to assess damage and mobilize efforts
for the public.
"We are really the first ones to help
the families," said J.B. Hunt, executive
director of the Greater Palm Beach
Area Chapter. "Our assistance is
immediate. We find out how many
families have been affected, how
many volunteers are needed and how
much financial assistance is required.
"Once we have a disaster assess-
ment then we gear up with financial
emergency assistance."
The Red Cross works in cooperation
with the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency, the county, building
departments and the other govern-
ment agencies. After an initial evalua-
tion local Red Cross officials brief
FEMA.


"FEMA has a liaison who we work
with. We have key members who go
out with FEMA representatives and
re-assess the situation so we are all
working on the same numbers and at
the same level," said Mr. Goggin.
. During, a hurricane, groups of EOC
workers generally deal with constant
updates from the Hurricane Center in
Miami and advise on tornado activity.
"It's so busy it does get hectic, but
everyone really supports one another.
We have mental health workers who
oversee the workers just in case," said
Mr. Goggin. "We've been doing this
long enough so we know how it works
and team work is the key. We also
meet regularly on a monthly basis for
planning and coordination."
The Greater Palm Beach Area Chap-
ter of the Red Cross sets up its EOC at
the main Red Cross branch on Fern
Street in West Palm Beach. If a hurri-
cane is a Category 3 or stronger they
relocate to the Palm Beach Gardens
Fire Department.
There are a few main areas of activi-
ty that the Red Cross monitors in its
operations room during hurricanes,
'such as: mass care, client and partner
services and disaster assessment.
"Mass care is where we deal with
sheltering and feeding people in shel-
ters. Client services is the process of
sending out caseworkers after the dis-
aster to help residents get emergency
relief. Partner services is where we

have a liaison interacting with the
county, schools and labor unions.
"Lastly, we have disaster assess-
ment, where volunteers go out,
access the damage to the commu-
nity and how much financial assis-
tance is needed," said Mr. Goggin.
Palm Beach County is keeping
abreast of new initiatives that help
during hurricanes and recently had
a series of drills. The drills mobi-
lized three different types of crisis
teams: emergency operating area
teams, community emergency
response teams and a volunteer
reception center.
These groups would support
local communities before emer-
gency responder arrive.
Office of Emergency Manage-
ment officials say there is no
amount of exercises or simulations
that can adequately prepare you
for life in an active emergency
operations center, however, with
all areas of governments and
organizations working as a team, it
makes a disastrous situation better.

installation. Which factor means
most depends on the person. Those
with limited incomes may opt for
plywood. If plywood is the only
option, it will still get the job done.
It should be screwed into the frame
of a house, not nailed in.
Accordion shutters are ideal for
seniors or those with disabilities.
They are connected to the frame-
work of the house, fold down easily
and can lock in place. Accordion
shutters should only be installed by
a professional for ideal effective-
ness.
Steel panels offer maximum pro-
tection, but can be heavy and diffi-
cult to install. Not to mention,
they're expensive.
Aluminum shutters are not as
strong as steel shutters, but are still
a good option and take less effort to
install. Simple aluminum shutters
can slide into strips that are nailed
along the framework around the
windows. So they easily lock into
place in little time.
If you want to go to a professional
and get the best hurricane protec-
tion available, there are companies
that specialize in making different


kinds of shutters.
Gulfstream Aluminum and Shut-
ter in Stuart have been in business
for 28 years. They manufacture
shutters and have all types to fit
your needs: accordion, Bahama,
storm panels (single pieces), roll up
(aluminum pieces that descend
from above, motorized or crank)
colonial and other products. They
also paint everything at the store as
well.
When you have to leave or evacu-
ate, you don't want your boarded up
house looking tacky or messy.
Each product Gulfstream manu-
factures will not only protect your
home, but give it a nice, profession-
al look. This is especially important
to families who will be gone for
days or weeks.
President John O'Brien men-
tioned how quickly things get going
when a hurricane is coming.
"You know how this state is. When
we get that hurricane warning,
food's gone, water's gone, gas is
gone and :the freeways are an
absolute mess. Get it done early.
Don't wait. You can't have that atti-
tude," he said.

2007 Red Cross shelters


BY SARAH STOVER
Staff writer

PALM BEACH COUNTY The Red
Cross offers homes away from home in
the event of a natural disaster, such as a
hurricane.
The nonprofit organization's shelters
are open to the public. When they open,
which is usually 24 to 48 hours before
the storm, residents are welcome to
start coming.
"We're here to help, and we're happy
to help," said Cathy Scheppke, a regis-
tered nurse who voluntarily serves as
the emergency services chairwoman
and coordinator of disaster health serv-
ices.
Ms. Scheppke has worked with the
SRed Cross since 2001, assisted in the
hurricane shelters in 2004 and 2005, and
traveled to Mississippi and New Orleans
after Hurricane Katrina to help in Red
Cross shelters in those states.


As a nurse who has seen her share of
shelter time, she wants to educate peo-
ple about what Red Cross shelters pro-
vide, and hurricane preparedness in
general.
"People need to know where the shel-
ters are before the storm hits and know
how to get there, including alternative
routes," said Ms. Scheppke.
If she has learned one thing from her
years of experience, it is that people
need to knowwhere they should go.
"If people are coming to a Red Cross
shelter they need to be pretty self-suffi-
cient or have a care person with them. If
someone has an elderly parent they
bring to the shelter, they need to stay
with their parent," said Ms. Scheppke.
Red Cross shelters do not accept pets,
with the exception of service animals,
she said.
While shelters are open to the public,
theyurge those with special needs, such

From page 12
as those who need electricity for life-
support devices, those with chronic ill-
nesses or who are immobile or bed-rid-
den and diabetics who need refrigerated
insulin, go elsewhere, simply because
the Red Cross does not have the staff to
give those with special medical needs
the attention they need, she said.
It is also done as a health and safety
precaution, said Ms. Scheppke.
"There have been people with chronic
illnesses and people who have been
recently discharged from the hospital
who come to the shelter. Anytime you're
housing hundreds or thousands of peo-
ple, (everyone's) bringing in their ill-
nesses with them, which makes it diffi-
cult to keep the shelters sanitary," said
Ms. Scheppke.
The Red Cross asks that people who
come to the shelters bring hand-sanitiz-
ers, babywipes and clean up after them-
selves, she said.
Palm Beach County has special needs
shelters (see list on page 18), and people
can sign-up before hurricane season by
calling (561) 712-6400.
"If people who have existing health
conditions come to the (Red Cross)
shelters, they need to be prepared. Peo-
ple who are taking medication should
have at least two weeks worth, if not a
month's worth, of what they need, said
Ms. Scheppke.
The shelters have generators, but
crews never know if they will have
power or not, so they encourage diabet-
ics who need refrigerated insulin to
bring their own coolers or ask their doc-
tors for comparable insulin tlat does
not need refrigeration. They also ask
that people on oxygen ask vendors for
portable devices and those with asthma
or other breathing issues to get portable
nebulizers, she said.
However, volunteers are prepared for
emergencies that might arise in the
shelters.
Since there are no ambulance runs
after a storm hits, any medical emergen-


cies that happen in shelters need to be
dealt with there, said Ms. Scheppke.
The Greater Palm Beach Chapter of
the Red Cross has a team of about 100
doctors and nurses, and partners with
the Palm Beach County Medical Society
and Medical Reserve Board to handle
medical emergencies, said Ms. Schepp-
ke.
Municipalities also have their para-
medics and emergency staff at the shel-
ters, she said.
Over the past few years, she has seen
people experience heart attacks,
seizures, bad falls and severe asthmatic
attacks in the shelters.
"Thank goodness we haven't had to
deliver any babies," said Ms. Scheppke
with a chuckle.
Women who are pregnant need to
speak with their obstetrician-gynecolo-
gists before hurricane season, to deter-
mine if they should make arrangements
to go to the hospital or a shelter, said Ms.
Scheppke.
Since disasters, such as hurricanes,
can cause mental and emotional dis-
tress, the Red Cross has mental health
teams that also work with the shelters,
she said.
Aside from medical care, the Red
Cross shelters offer meals three times a
day, but the organization encourages
people to bring their own water and
snacks.
"What (the meals) are going to be
depends on the severity of the storms,
but we have really great vendors," said
Ms. Scheppke.
In previous years, the shelters have
been fortunate to have enough supplies,
she said.
Since most shelters are schools, if
schools re-open after storms, the Red
Cross will find another shelter for those
who still need it, said Ms. Scheppke.
The program could always use more
volunteers, she said.

Palm Beach chapter of theAmerican Red
Cross i i56I, 833-7711 or visitwww.red-

Vehicles, service centers to


the rescue after a hurricane


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


Mention the word "ERV" to any-
one who has survived a hurricane
and they will immediately know
the meaning of the three-letter
word that sounds like your uncle
Irv.
The acronym refers to American
Red Cross emergency response
vehicles.
When a hurricane. or tropical
storm threatens Florida, the Amer-


ican National Red Cross begins to
mobilize in advance of the system,
making landfall. ERVs are strategi-
cally placed where they are outside
the strike area, yet close enough to
begin arriving in the impacted
zone as soon as conditions are
safe.
Each ERV will bring much need-
ed food and water to residents and
rescue workers.

Knowing


what to do


after a storm


is critical

BY MICHELLE GENTILE
Staff writer

There are a number of things to
do to prepare before a hurricane,
such as planning out an evacuation
route, preparing a hurricane kit,
and making sure portable commu-
nication devices are charged and
ready.
However, many people do not
realize the importance of knowing
what to do immediately after a hur-
ricane.
"More people are injured and
killed after a hurricane than during
a hurricane," said Capt. Don Delu-
cia of Palm Beach County Fire Res-
cue.

Boat safety

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Here are some tips on preparing
vessels before a hurricane or once the
threat of one is imminent:

Before hurricane season:
Check insurance policies for
adequate coverage, making sure
you understand any exclusions and
your duties as a vessel owner.
Inventory all equipment on
board. Remove or secure loose
items.
Check deck hardware, electron-
ics and the bilge pump. Keep batter-
ies charged.
If you use a boat trailer, check
the tires, bearings and hitch
If you plan on moving your boat
on the water, know your route well.
Rehearse and time your hurricane
plan, then double that time to allow
for traffic delays and severe weather
When an evacuation order is
issued, bridges may be locked in the
down position to speed evacuation
of the barrier islands. Set sail early

to avoid blocked waterways.
When a storm threatens:
SIf you leave your boat in a mari-
na, double all lines. Rig crossing
spring lines fore and aft. Attach lines
high on pilings to allow for storm
surge. Protect all lines from chafing.
Remove as much electronic gear
as possible.
NEVER attempt to ride out any
tropical storm or hurricane on your

If you leave your boat on a trailer,
try to store it in a garage or ware-

With the manufacturer's
approval, fill the hull with water and
put the anchor obut. If the storm

The period after a hurricane can be a
trying time for all On top of standard
stresses, such as no power and possible
damage, you may wonder how your

Since downed power lines and limit-
ed cell phone connection can make it-
difficult to reach loved ones, the Ameri-

suggests appointing a family member
outside of the affected area as the fami-

This person will have everyone's con-
tact information and serve as a messen-
ger to update family members. A specif-
ic date and time to call this person

Hurricane director urges residents to prepare


Keep at least
a week's worth
of supplies during
hurricane season
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer


The director of the National Hurri-
cane Center in Miami wants residents
to be prepared this hurricane season.
Bill Proenza wants everyone to have a
plan in place before a hurricane threat-
ens the area.
"People need to be prepared before
hurricane season," Mr. Proenza said. "If
we get a direct hit with maximum
impact of winds and storm surge, we


don't get a second chance."
Coastal populations continue to grow,
with 53 percent of the population living
within 50 miles of a coastline. That
equates to having a large number of
people who may not know how to ready
themselves for a natural disaster.
"There are a lot of people who have
not experienced a hurricane or tropical
storm and we're very concerned," Mr.
Proenza said. "Since the mid-90s, there
have been a higher number of storms.
Just how active we'll be is the big ques-
tion, so people need to become aware
of what to do."
Mr. Proenza became director of the
National Hurricane Center on Jan. 3.
Before that, he was director of the
National Weather Service for the south-
ern United States.

Mr. Proenza
began his 35-year
career in weather
with the National
Hurricane Center,
where he worked
as a hurricane
hunter, flying into
hurricanes to
study them. He
has seen his share
of hurricanes, and
believes prepara-
tion is the key to Bill Proenza
.surviving a storm.
Mr. Proenza sug-
gests residents stockpile enough sup-
plies to last for a week or two without
power.
"People should have a plan ahead of
time to make sure their family doesn't
have to venture out and they can stay
safe at home," he said.
If residents choose to ride a hurricane
out from their homes, an emergency kit
should be assembled. The kits should
be stocked with necessary medicines
and first-aid supplies, as well as non-
perishable foods, bottled water, flash-
lights and plenty of batteries.
"We need people to take responsibili-
ty for themselves and their families,"
Mr. Proenza said.
An alternative to staying at home dur-
ing a hurricane is to evacuate to either a
shelter in the area or leave town alto-
gether. Mr. Proenza suggests those resi-
dents who leave their homes during a


storm should a have a plan as well.
"If you evacuate, where you go and
what you take is something people
need to think about," Mr. Proenza said.
"You've got to make preparations before
because we can't have people on the
streets (after a storm) because it makes
the job of recovery harder. Everything
works better if you're prepared."
The 2007 hurricane season is expect-
ed to be an active one, unlike last year.
El Nifio was in place in the Pacific
Ocean, which minimized land impacts
from hurricane activity in 2006. This
season; El Nifio is gone, which means
the area is once-again vulnerable for a
hurricane strike.
"Despite having the second-warmest
sea surface temperatures since 1930,
factor in El Nifio and we really had sup-
pressed activity," Mr. Proenza said.
"This year, El Nifio is gone and we
should be back at an above-average of
storms."
But people should prepare, despite
what forecasters may predict.
"People shouldn't focus on the out-
look," Mr. Proenza said. "In reality, so
many factors change. We want people
to be interested in (the outlook), but at
the same time, don't base decisions on
it. Do whatever you can to protect your-
selves and families."

canes and hurricane preparedness, visit

From page 13
"Red Cross volunteers are trained
to operate the ERVs. It is one of the
most rewarding experiences a vol-
unteer can have when they see the
smiles and happiness from a disas-
ter victim who has just received a
hot meal and water after a disaster,"
said Mary Blakeney, director of
emergency services, Greater Palm
Beach Area Chapter.
ERV operators may make several
trips each day from supply head-
quarters or kitchens where food and
water are stockpiled or cooked.
"When we are not able to supply a
hot meal, we bring snacks, Heater
MealsT and other food items to the
victims and rescue workers," she
said.
"When there is a really bad storm
and conditions do not allow us to
reach some victims for days, this
may be the first food and water they
have seen in quite some time."
A typical distribution run by an
ERV crew involves an early morning
arrival to a supply center.
A logistics meeting the night
before has determined specific
routes for each ERV crew. Once at
the supply center, available food
and beverage is loaded into back of
the ERV and the crew departs to a
designated neighborhood to begin
distribution.
When the ERV arrives at its
assigned neighborhood, a volunteer
makes announcements on a loud-
speaker fixed to the top of the vehi-


cle letting everyone who needs food
and water to come forward.
"Literally, we have seen people
come running to get food and water.
We are glad to be there when help is
needed," said Ms. Blakeney.
Depending on the extent of the
damage left by.a hurricane or tropi-
cal storm, an ERV crew may make'
several runs distributing food and
water each day.
"Our goal is to get food and water
to people as soon as possible and
continue to provide them with help
until power is restored or fixed feed-
ing areas with food and water are
established," added Ms. Blakeney.

Client assistance cards
continue to provide help

As disaster victims move from the
immediate aftermath of a hurricane,
the American Red Cross continues
to provide support.
Red Cross Service Centers are
established when mobile feeding
operations cease.
Red Cross Service Centers provide
trained Red Cross volunteers who
evaluate each disaster victim's spe-
cific recovery need. Based on the
individual or family's need, the
American Red Cross may provide
financial assistance in the form of a
client assistance card.
Client assistance cards are funda-
mentally electronic debit cards.
Each is loaded with funding essen-
tial to meet the verified needs of the
individual or family.
Everyone who receives client


assistance cards are trusted to be
good stewards of donors' dollars,
who make the financial help possi-
ble.
"Traditionally, the American Red
Cross had issued vouchers to those
needing help after a disaster," said
Ms. Blakeney. "Oftentimes, that
created a stigma or was able to be
used only for a very specific item at
a specific store or location.
"By using the Red Cross client
assistance card, we have made it
easier for disaster victims to return
to a normal life," she added.
The road to total recovery follow-
ing a major hurricane or other dis-
aster is often slow and painful for
the victims of the disaster. The
American Red Cross has a commit-
ment to being there when help is
needed. With your continued finan-
cial support, the American Red
Cross will always be-there to help.

From page 14
"Residents need to be aware of the
dangers, especially in flood areas.
These waters can often contain
downed electrical wires, broken glass,
contaminated water or dangerous
debris. We're asking adults and chil-
dren to stay out of these waters."
Federal Emergency Management
Agency officials say people should
inform local authorities about any
health and safety issues, including
chemical spills, downed power lines,
washed out roads, smoldering insula-
tion and dead animals. However,
make sure to contact the correct
agency.
"We can't stress enough not to call
911, unless it's an emergency. We have
to prioritize who needs help first, and
we hope that people will use common
sense so they don't flood the lines," he
said. After the 2004 hurricanes, there
were 92 indirect deaths in Florida due
to people not heeding post hurricane
warnings.
"The deaths occurred because of
electrocution, carbon monoxide poi-
soning, heat-exhaustion, people
falling off roofs and using power tools
incorrectly," said Mike Lyons, a mete-


orologist with WPBF Channel 25,
which is based in Palm Beach Gar-
dens.
"If there is any good that can come
out of going through the last hurri-
canes, it's being better prepared and
knowing what not to do.".
Fire rescue officials warn people to
be aware of heat exhaustion. Don't try
to do too much at one time, set priori-
ties, drink plenty of water and wash
hands thoroughly when working with
or around debris.
"Our job is to go out immediately
after the storm and make sure there
are no injuries or persons trapped
under debris. We then try to access
damaged areas and alert other offi-
cials in the EOC," said Capt. Delucia.
The emergency operations center is
made up of representatives from the
Red Cross, county fire rescue and
health departments, utilities, such as
FP&L, road and bridge, the National
Guard and city government officials.
Each station goes out and inspects
certain coverage areas.
Information on damage and non-
accessible area is then transferred
back to the EOC, which is ultimately
given to media outlets.
"In the first days after the storm,
people need to focus on restoring
their household stability," said Mary


Blakeney, director of emergency
services with the Greater Palm Beach
County Chapter of the Red Cross.
"Be prepared with portable radios
or television to stay abreast of what
is happening, what areas are off lim-
its and where ice, water or food is
being set-up."
Another tip the Red Cross suggests
is removing important documents,
valuables and keepsakes if your
home is damaged.
Making temporary repairs, such as
boarding up windows and putting
up a tarp, can also be helpful.
"Unless it's unsafe, you'll want to
make temporary repairs to stop any
further damage and immediately
contact your insurance company,"
said Ms. Blakeney.
"Remember to keep some cash on
hand and as you spend, keep
receipts for reimbursement."
Also, keep in mind some employ-
ers will offer employee assistance
programs, so checking with compa-
nies is a must.
"Everybody needs to be prepared
in advance in order for things to run
smoothly after the disaster," she
said.

Follow simple traffic rule: if in doubt, don't go out


Traffic guidelines
following a hurricane

BY LINNEA BROWN
Staff writer

The safest bet for local residents
before, during or after a hurricane is to
"stay put."
That's what officials atthe Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office are recommend-
ing for local drivers.
Capt. Pat Kenny, head of the depart-
ment's traffic division, said the sheriff's
office recommends that residents stay
in their homes before and during the
storm.
If residents' homes are unsafe, they
should seek safety in a local shelter as
soon as possible prior to a storm hitting
the area.
"It's safer than trying to outrun the
storm on the roadway, which also caus-
es (traffic issues)," he said. "The road-
ways aren't safe. It's much safer to be at
home."
After the storm has passed, residents
should remain where they are inside
and off the road for 24 hours, Capt.


Kenny said.
'A lot of people like to go out sightsee-
ing right after a storm, but that's actually
the most dangerous time, due to live
power lines and guide wires that are
down," he said. "Because of the debris,
also, people may not see the (dangers)
coming and injure themselves or cause
an accident."
This first 24 hours is a critical time for
police and emergency officials to assess
damages, making it particularly impor-
tant that roadways are clear of unneces-
saryvehicles, Capt. Kenny said.
Even after that first 24 hours, people
should not be out after dark in areas that
don't have power because traffic lights
aren't working, he added.
In daylight hours, drivers should treat
every intersection without power as a
four-way stop.
"In areas where there is no traffic con-
trol device, everyone must stop and
yield to each other. No one driver has
any more 'right of way' than the next,"
Capt. Kennysaid.
In the case of widespread power out-
age, Sheriff Ric Bradshaw will order a
curfew, mandating that residents stay
inside and off the roadways after a cer-
tain time of night.
