Small knows that now is the best time
for people to make plans for this hur-
And he knows that most people
are getting complacent. The memory
of Hurricane Wilma, October, 2005,
may be fading in the eyes of coastal
dwellers, but Small hopes people will
remember the weeks without electri-
city and other problems that
continued far beyond the
day of the storm.
"It's more than a little extra food
and water in the house," says Small.
"Surviving the storm is only part of
it. Hurricanes Frances [September,
2004], Jeanne [September 2004] and
Wilma taught us the real work comes
after the storm has hit."

Calypso pipeline executives, Coast Guard officials,
face off with concerned residents, politicians
By Judy Vik
Officials from Suez Energy North
America and the U.S. Coast Guard
fielded questions about a proposed
deepwater port off the coast of Fort
Lauderdale from concerned residents
and politicians for 2-1/2 hours at a
- meeting in Dania Beach last week.
They were attempting to separate
fact from fiction regarding a project
that would locate ships and an under-
Water buoy and anchoring system off-
shore to bring a new supply of natural
gas to South Florida. Liquefied natural
gas tankers would hook up and dis-
charge their cargo into a pipeline that
would carry the fuel to South Florida's
Still many residents and elected
officials left feeling their concerns had
not been taken seriously or their ques-
tions answered. They vowed to contact
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who can
deny a license.
"We have heard your concerns
loud and clear," Dan McGinnis,
project manager for the Calypso
Deepwater Port, said as the meeting
began. "Many things you have heard
are just plain wrong, gross exaggera-
tions or portions of studies quoted out
McGinnis said an accident at the
site of the deepwater port "won't
generate a 30-mile fireball or be like
He said the Calypso project will
provide a new, diversified source of
natural gas and will help avoid supply
"This project is safe," McGinnis
said. "This company wouldn't propose
Calypso if it weren't safe."
The ships and the underwater
buoy and anchoring system would be
located about 8 to 10 miles offshore
northeast of Port Everglades. Lique-
fied Natural Gas or LNG, would be
turned back into gas onboard the ship.
Addressing why the project is
needed, McGinnis said it's because
"coal is coming to a screeching halt in
Under Gov. Crist, quite a few coal
plants have been canceled. As a result,
the need for natural gas is acute.

Fire and Police departments
get the desperate calls for
"After Wilma, we got
calls from people on dialysis.
We could not find centers that
were operational. In many
cases, some centers pulled in
generators and saved lives.
These are big things to think
Small suggests at least
two months of medical sup-
Pompano Beach employ-
ees have been working year-
round as team members of the
city's Emergency Operation
Center, or EOC, headed by
Kimberly Spill. The team
has been meeting regularly
to review procedures for any
disaster which could range
from a homeland security
issue to a Category 5 hurri-
"We learned from 9-11
that communication is critical
to disaster preparedness, relief
and recovery," Spill says.
Now, the National Inci-
dent Management System, or
NIMS, is the standard lan-
guage for all disasters.
It works like this. The
EOC team in Pompano Beach
consists of city employees
who are responsible for spe-
cific tasks, from food supplies,
transportation, first aid, search
and rescue and more. Already,
these team members are pre-
pared to act immediately if a
specific need arises.
Small explains that if the
emergency was to transport
people from an area, he would
contact the Emergency Sup-
port Function, or ESF-1 per-
son. That person, who would
be housed at the EOC at the
city's public works building,
could respond quickly because
that person has already
researched and lined up the
buses and drivers to move out
"We learned that from 9-
11," says Small. "There were
plenty of agencies ready to
assist on Sept. 11, 2001, but
there was no communication.
No one was in charge."
He added that although
Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf
Coast and New Orleans after
9-11, the system wasn't put
into use very well.
NIMS works because it
keeps all agencies focused on
Small adds that when the
local EOC team cannot help,
that team contacts the county
EOC. From the county, that
team moves to the state and
eventually to the Federal
Agency, or FEMA.
Again Small points out
that the lack of communica-

FPL is increasing its reli-

percent to 72 percent of its

said. With the Calypso proj-

is recognizing June 1 to 7 as Rip Current Awareness Week, promoting educa-
tion and understanding of rip tides in our coastal waters. Governor Charlie
Crist signed a proclamation recognizing the week, encouraging "all Floridians
and visitors to safely enjoy our coastal beaches and resources this week and
throughout the year, and know what to do if caught in a rip current."
"With rising coastal populations as well as increased visitation to Florida
shores, rip currents will continue to be a serious hazard at surf beaches," said
Florida Department of Environmental Protection, or DEP, Secretary Michael
W. Sole. "By taking steps to heighten understanding about rip currents, we can
successfully reduce the number of rip current-related fatalities and ensure more
safe trips to Florida's award-winning beaches."
Rip Current Awareness Week, promoted through a partnership between
DEP, the Florida Division of Emergency Management, the Florida offices of
the National Weather Service, the Southeast and South Atlantic Regions of the
United States Lifesaving Association, and the Florida Beach Patrol Chiefs Asso-
ciation, reminds beach visitors to be alert and knowledgeable about rip currents
at surf beaches. Experts also advise beachgoers to know how to swim, never
swim alone and if in doubt, don't go out into the water.
"Everybody needs to understand their ability as a swimmer and heed posted
surf advisories," said State Emergency Management Director Craig Fugate.
"The dangers of this natural hazard can be avoided by following basic safety
steps and respecting the power of water.
Rip currents are powerful, channeled currents of water flowing away from
shore, and can occur at any beach with breaking waves. They typically extend
from the shoreline, through the surf zone, and past the line of breaking waves.
Rip currents account for more than 80 percent of rescues performed by beach
If caught in a rip current, remember to:
Don't fight the current.
Swim out of the current, then to shore.
Float or tread water if you cannot escape.
If you need help call or wave for assistance.
The Florida Beach Patrol Chiefs Association distributes rip current edu-
cational signs to local governments and public parks throughout Florida free
of charge. Many National Weather Service offices include a daily rip current
outlook in the Surf Zone Forecast. Describing rip current risk in a three-tiered
structure (low, moderate, or high) this outlook is communicated to lifeguards,
emergency management, media and the general public, and is available online
Uniform warning flags
In addition to rip current awareness education, DEP's Florida Coastal Man-
agement Program developed a uniform warning and safety flag system in 2002
for use by Florida's beachfront communities. DEP consulted with the United
States Lifesaving Association, the International Life Saving Federation, state
agencies and local governments to design a warning flag system that is simple
to use and easy to interpret, based on the flag design and color coding proposed
by the International Life Saving Federation. To encourage use of the system, the
warning flags and interpretive signs to explain the flag's meanings are provided
upon request free of charge annually to beachfront communities. Flag warnings
and colors are:
Green: Low hazard, calm conditions, exercise caution.
Yellow: Medium hazard, moderate surf and/or currents.
Red: High hazard, high surf and/or strong currents.
Red over Red (two flags flying): Water closed to the public.
Purple: Dangerous marine life.

When school ends, life doesn't
slow down. You still juggle kids' ac-
tivities, work and family time mak-
ing it a challenge to eat healthy and
Studies show that kids tend to
gain more weight during the summer.
To help keep your kids healthy this
summer, follow these practical tips
from the American Heart Associa-
Dealing With a
Getting a picky eater to eat a
nutritious meal doesn't have to be a
battle. Here are some things to try:
-Add healthy fruits and vegeta-
bles to foods that your child already
likes. For example, add blueberries
to pancakes, carrots to muffins, fruit
slices to a bowl of cereal, chunks of
bell pepper to potato salad, or shred-
ded veggies over rice.
-Include your kids when you
grocery shop. By being involved in
choosing the foods at the grocery
store they may be more likely to eat
it. When your kids shop with you,
have them look for the heart-check
mark that shows which foods are cer-
tified by the American Heart Asso-
ciation to be low in saturated fat and
-Keep healthy foods on hand
- water or 100 percent juice instead
of colas or fruit drinks, and a bag of
apples instead of a bag of chips.
-Have healthy finger foods avail-
able. Kids like to pick up foods, so
give them foods they can handle. Fruit
and veggie chunks (raw or cooked)
are great finger-food options.
-Repeal the "clean your plate"
rule, even if your. child loads a plate
up with more food than they can eat.
Kids know when they're full, so let
them stop and help them learn to take
smaller servings next time.
-Don't cut out treats altogether.
Think moderation. A scoop of ice
cream or a serving of cookies is okay

occasionally. If you cut out goodies,
your kids will be more likely to over
indulge when they get them.
Take Control of Portion
Portion size has a lot to do with
why our kids are struggling with their
weight our kids are getting far more
calories than they need.
To control portions, know what
is considered a normal portion. You
may be surprised to learn these are
-1 slice of bread
-1/2 cup rice or pasta (cooked)
-1 small piece of fruit (a super-
large apple is 2+ servings)
-1/2 cup cooked vegetable or 1
cup raw leafy vegetable
-3/4 cup fruit juice
1 cup milk or yogurt
-2 ounces cheese (about the size
of a domino)
-2 to 3 ounces meat, poultry or
fish (this is about the size of a deck
Make Fast Food
If you eat on the go, use these tips
to make fast food healthier for both
your kids and yourself:
-Pass on the value size. When you
increase the size, your bucket of fries
isn't the only thing that gets bigger.
-Skip the sides. Eating a burger
or sandwich by itself is often tilling
enough. If you do want a side, con-
sider ordering fruit or a side salad in-
stead of French fries.
-Avoid double meat and bacon.
You're probably getting more than
you need with a single meat patty.
Bacon is high in calories and fat with
little nutrient content.
-Try the grilled chicken sandwich.
Poultry without skin is significantly
leaner than the meats most fast-food
companies use in their burgers. Be-
ware of breaded deep fried chicken,
which is loaded with calories and fat.
-Eat your sandwich open-faced.
By eating only half the bun, you can
-Pay attention to the calories in
condiments choose mustard instead
of mayo or other calorie-laden dress-
ings and sauces.
-Drink water, diet soda or low-fat
milk. Regular sodas are loaded with
sugars, which have calories you don't
The best way to influence kids is
by example. Be a good role model -
your family's health depends on it.

Make Grocery Shopping
Fun and Easy
Grocery shopping isn't always
easy with your kids in tow, but you
can change that.
When headed to the grocery store,
be organized and have a plan. Start
by building your free, heart-healthy
grocery list at heartcheckmark.org.
Create your list from hundreds of
products certified by the American
Heart Association to be low in satu-
rated fat and cholesterol. You can
add other needed items. The result is
a personalized and organized grocery)
list sorted by category that you can
save for future use and print or ac-
cess from your Web-enabled mobile
phone or PDA.
Once at the grocery store, engage
your kids in a nutrition game that
keeps them focused and more man-
ageable. Ask them to help you look
for the heart-check mark on foods.
Whoever spots the most heart-check
marks wins the game. The kids stay
entertained and you know the foods
you're selecting are heart-healthy and
part of a sensible eating plan.

and current Florida Atlantic
University President, Frank
Brogan, was the keynote
speaker. Brogan, the first
member of his family to grad-

importance of teachers and
the educational system as a

ills but that education comes

including the problems faced
in the justice system.
He also said that all teach-
ers, from pre-k to high school,
should be celebrated and
remembered when a student
graduates from college. "Ev-
ery teacher is a building block
that ultimately contributed to
that walk across the stage."

18 The Pelican
Pipeline raises concerns from residents about terrorism
By Judy Vik
Residents of the Galt Ocean
Mile raised concerns about
terrorist attacks if the Calypso
project is built offshore.
"Our concern is more than a
myth," said Fred Nesbitt. He
cited a government account-
ability study that says since
9-11 the threat of a terrorist
attack is significant. He said
four malicious maritime inci-
dents occur each week.
"A tanker with 33 million
gallons of LNG is like 20
billion gallons of natural gas.
That's a little more than in the
pipe in my kitchen," Nesbitt
He asked the Coast Guard
spokesman, "Is the threat of
a terrorist attack a myth as
Prescott responded, "The
Coast Guard goal is to prevent
these attacks. If there were
a breach and liquid ignites,
if you were within one-half
mile, you are in big trouble.
The farthest a gas cloud could
go is up to 3-1/2 miles. If
there were an intentional at-
tack, it's unlikely you would
have a gas cloud. You would
have a pool fire where boaters
could be at risk."
Nesbitt persisted. "So the
threat of terrorist attacks to a
tanker moored is a myth?"
"No, I don't think it's a
myth," Prescott answered.
"Terrorist risks are every-
Bill Claire, Plaza South
condominium, quoted a global
security study that said piracy
is a key tactic of terrorist
"If an LNG tanker sailing
toward Fort Lauderdale were
hijacked and driven to Port
Everglades, how would the
Coast Guard react?" he asked.
Capt. Schultz said 11,000
commercial vessels come to
South Florida annually, and
the Coast Guard correlates
"The risk of terrorism is
very real," Schultz said. "You
can't eliminate the risk. You
can't say there's zero risk to
Claire then said, "If we
don't have this, there won't be
an attack on an LNG ship. If
we do, there could be. If a [hi-
jacked] LNG tanker is coming
toward Fort Lauderdale, what
would you do?"
"Try to prevent that scenario
and identify the comman-
deered ship," Schultz said.
"Can you guarantee there
won't be an attack to destroy
Fort Lauderdale?" Claire
Fred Stabile, vice president
of shipping with Suez, took
"Ships have to give notifica-
tion of arrival. If something is
amiss, there's a panic button
on the ship. If a ship is hi-
jacked, that button is triggered
and gives notification some-
thing is wrong."
Another Galt resident asked
the Suez officials why the
Bahamian government didn't
approve a similar proposed
project. "Why were we the
lucky people selected, and
how many vessels will you
have?" she asked.
Brad Cooley of Suez said
they would have two to three
vessels with more under con-
tract if needed.
He said Suez tried to get
a permit for a facility in the
Bahamas but could never get
a yes or no from the govern-
ment. "When we developed
the equipment in Massachu-
setts, we thought it would also
work in Florida."
More questions followed.
"If you can't protect dilapi-
dated boats from Cuba and
Haiti, why should we assume
you can protect us?" Galt
resident Rick Weston asked.
"You're taking a chance with
our lives," he said.
A man who said he is a
third generation professional
commercial fisherman, said
he is concerned that starfish
and golden crab will be wiped
out by this project. Lightning,
waterspouts and the strong
current in the Gulfstream also
"I have seen 19 waterspouts.
How can you drop the buoy
and get out of the way?" he
And he added, "The Coast
Guard is here for everyone in
the United States. I don't want
my tax dollars used for this
Pio leraci, president of the
Galt Ocean Mile Association,
said, "I haven't heard anything
that minimizes our concerns.
Allowing this port to be built
in a densely populated area is
an outrage. You need a new
location for this port. We have
spoken to the governor and
will ensure that he hears us
loudly and clearly."
After the meeting, Dan
McGinnis, project manager,
said more meetings would be
held along the Galt. He said
company officials had talked
to the Galt leaders in early
April, "and we came away
thinking they were pretty
satisfied. Then they flipped
He said he was
dumbfounded when the Fort
Lauderdale City Commission
refused to delay any action
and instead passed the
resolution against the project.

to get you seen and heard...

Park, 240 NW 16 St. Free admission.
This event celebrates the Emancipation Proclamation, signed in
1863, the document that ended slavery in America.
But in those days, news had a hard time getting to all of the people,
years before some slaves were restored to freedom.
l_ I [I00 8 ] Sometimes, the date is referred to as the Junteenth Celebration.
Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers,
.. led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas
with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now
free. Here is what Granger read to the people of Texas:
A CENT UR ^The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Procla-
mation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free.
This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property
OFl BUI^ L D^ ING between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore
existing between them becomes that between employer and free

Pompano Beach, Past
At the corner of FlaglerAvenue and NE Second Street there is a masonry
building with the name "Belvill" on it. It was constructed in 1934 by
T. Sol Belvill to replace an earlier, wooden building (shown in the
photograph) that had burned down.
It is not clear when the original Belvill building was constructed, but
it was before the First World War. The old building housed the U.S.
Post Office with commercial space on the ground floor and hotel rooms
on the second.
Following the fire that destroyed the wooden building, the Post Office
moved to the Masonic Lodge building on the south side of Pompano
Canal. That building, just east to today's City Hall, was recently de-
molished to make way for a new library.
