Reducing Area Power Outages

Trees & Power Lines Have Long Been A Recipe For Disaster By Larry Blustein sfsuntimes@aol.com Robert Collins remembers it well. It was Saturday night last September 9th at 8, and he was ready to watch a football game. Just as he sat down, he heard a noise and saw a flash out of his window. Everything went dark for nearly a week. While the wind was heavier than usual, the culprit that did Collins and his neighbors in happened to be a tree that

was virtually on top of the power line. It wasn’t the first time. “Five people in our community had personally contacted this gentlemen about the tree, which had been the problem in at least three outages over the past four years,” Collins explained. “We lost power 27 hours before any other area in our neighborhood - and that is becoming a problem.” In the past, the cities and Florida Power & Light have done nothing more

than tell homeowners the dangers about trees and power lines, but things are about to change - at least in parts of Broward County. Broward is restricting how close to power lines homeowners can plant trees to protect against power outages during future hurricanes. The new rules apply only in Broward’s unincorporated areas, but officials hope the county

‘Prom Bash, Don’t Crash’ sends Hurricane Season - It's a signal to graduating seniors Time To Get Ready!

On Monday morning at Hallandale High School, the Hallandale Beach Police Department, with the assistance of Hallandale Beach Fire Rescue and the Hallandale High School Drama Department, hosted the “Prom Bash, Don’t Crash” event for graduating seniors at Hallandale High School to raise awareness of driving safely on prom night.

Hollywood - The 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season begins June 1st and researchers are predicting this season could be another above average season. Now is the time to sit down with your family to make a plan. Review your property insurance policies and determine what essentials (such as water, medicines, etc.) you will need in your hurricane Hollywood, 5A

Hollywood residents are much wiser this year after going through a brush with Hurricane Irma.

This Week’s Storms Had Us On Edge For The Season Ahead 1st Priority Restoration Knows All About Flooding & Mildew Problems That Exist From the way the weather is stacking up this week, you know that we are indeed ready for the rainy season. That means that as the heat of the day reaches its peak, the storms will build and the heavy rains will fall. As we all know and understand, it is now just weeks away from the hurricane season, and that is something that we have all become used to this time of year. The friendly reminder this past week, with the heavy rains and the flooding that occurred in just a few hours, makes us all feel great about having a company like 1st Priority Restoration. Realizing that we live in an area

that does experience heavy rain and flooding, this is an area business that is all about giving the customer that "peace of mind.” Even while we are still thinking about Hurricane Irma - or any tropical system that can come ashore and ruin our summer - there are many who learned from what transpired in the weeks and months following 2017. But even if a storm does not threaten South Florida, it’s those daily thunderstorms, much like this past week, and pounding rain that can do plenty of damage.

This Week’s Storms Had Us On Edge For The Season Ahead

1st Priority Restoration Will Get Your Home or Condo Clean And Back To Normal

1st Priority Restoration is offering a special 40% off this month on marble polishing. 1st Priority specializes in cleaning carpets, tile and grout, marble polishing, pressure cleaning, canvas awnings and cleaning air ducts.

cleaning job has become their trademark. What continues to sep1st Priority arate Restoration from anyone else is they can take care of all of your cleaning and water damage problems - as well as conducting leak and mold detections and working with your insurance company and adjuster. Because 1st Priority Restoration has been around South Florida for years, they are ready to spring into action 12 months a year. They know all about the flooding and water damage that can occur year round. In fact, even during some of the heavier, brief winter and spring rains, many local residents had roof leaks and even foundation problems, where the water got into the house and lifted tile. While there are so many water damage and restoration businesses in South Florida, finding the right one is never an easy deal. Because 1st Priority has had so many satisfied customers, the repeat business and new clients has been a true indicator of why so many have turned to the area’s largest company - with the knowhow to repair residential and commercial water damage. Their professionals will replace or restore your soaked and stained drywall. They can do everything - you name it: ceiling repair, drywall replacement, structural damage, roof leaks, floor repair, furniture cleaning, mold removal and treatments.

SPECIALIZING IN WATER DAMAGE, MOLD TESTING The important thing to remember is 1st Priority Restoration specializes in water damage restoration and mold testing. But more and more families have been finding out about the carpet cleaning, tile and grout, marble polishing, pressure cleaning, canvas awnings and cleaning air ducts. They also do upholstery cleaning and drapes.

Is your floor dirty from the kids coming in and out of the house dozens of times? Let 1st Priority clean your tile and grout to look sparkling new again. Tile cleaning is done, section by section, as an exact science and there will be no mess in the home. The company can remove painted tile glaze and return the tiles to their original state. Most residents get lots of foot traffic and resealing the tile floor makes sense - in the future, it will be easier to clean.

ASK FOR THE 5YEAR PROTECTION Do your bathroom tiles have mildew buildup and you would be embarrassed for your guests? Let 1st Priority really clean safely scrub those tiles and make them look new again. It's a messy job, so let the professionals, with years of experience, use the elbow grease. Do you have an expensive marble floor that needs a new life? Marble scratches can be ground down,

buffed and polished to look brand new. The has the company know-how for installation of floors, tile, marble and wood. CARPETS CLEANED Take an average sized living room with two bedrooms and let 1st Priority’s professionals go to work and thoroughly clean your carpets in one hour. Consumers need not worry as the workers will move or lift furniture and place on Styrofoam blocks to really steam clean those hard to reach spots. Let's face it, most people don't remove their shoes when they enter their homes; as a result, carpet cleaning should routinely be done every 6 months, especially with children and/or pets. 1st Priority’s employees will always make sure that your property is left in good condition.

NO JOB TOO SMALL 1st Priority Restoration are a reputable company with over 20 employees and are licensed and insured. They have been doin-

gall types of cleaning and water damage restoration for more than a decade. "We use the most efficient cleaning and water removal equipment to make sure that our customers are satisfied with the job we do for them. We try to use nontoxic "Green" safe chemicals for all mildew treatments.” "In all the years that I have been helping customers with water damage, customers are pleased with our work and like the positive attitude from our employees and we have never received a single complaint. Instead, every year, we get repeat customers, who remember our quality work."

CUSTOMERS 100% SATISFIED All jobs are different. "If a customer calls and is not completely satisfied with any of the work, the crew will return promptly to your property and redo the work to meet your expectations. We strive to make our customers 100% satisfied and

have many repeat customers as a result of it."

WHY DO I HEAR... BUT NOT UNDERSTAND? Study by Cambridge University in England Reveals Key Answer Until recently, there was no practical way to identify dead regions of hearing cells in the ear. However, a new Britishdeveloped procedure using standard test equipment now allows for identification of dead hearing cell regions. The study suggests that the presence or absence of dead regions may have serious implications in the fitting of hearing aids. This research reveals that amplifying dead cells is a mistake which will result in poorer speech understanding in noise. A new type of digitally programmable microcircuit is now available using nanoScience

technology that can be programmed to bypass the dead cells. As a result, the patient’s usable hearing cells receive amplification, thereby improving speech understanding in noise. “We are employing a like method in our diagnostic sound booths using a sound field speech in noise procedure,” said Maria Moreno, HIS.“This test simu-

lates hearing in a noisy crowd. We are able to determine maximum speech understanding by frequency shaping this new hearing aid.” The results have been phenomenal. For the first time, a patient is able to actually realize the exact percentage of speech understanding improvement in noisy listening environments. These new products come in the smallest

digital wireless models. During its release, Allied Hearing Centers are offering this new frequency-shaping wireless hearing instrument on a 30-day satisfaction trial. Call the office nearest you for a no-obligation appointment.

ordinance will be used as a model by cities to help keep the lights on for residents when major storms strike. Cities such as Hollywood - with a majority of its power sources running up and down the alleys should be the first to act. Ride up and down any street in the City and you will find trees that are engulfing some power lines - and that is why Esteban Cedeno decided to take things in his own hands. With three neighbors on his block that have power lines running next to their trees, Cedeno had a letter signed by the neighbors who are on the same power grid, letting the families know that they were not happy with a December wind storm that cracked a large branch that fell on the power line and blew a transformer. “People just do not care,” Cedeno said. “But I do and have a mother living with us and needs breathing assistance. A power outage is not what she needs.” FP&L officials say fallen trees were the primary cause of outages during Hurricane Irma in 2017 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016, and the company has pushed for local regulations to keep trees clear of its lines. FPL is looking to county and city governments to restrict tree plantings that could affect the electric grid and to allow the company greater access to trim overgrown trees on homeowners’ and commercial properties near its equipment. FPL has a preventive maintenance program called line clearing to regularly clear tree branches and limbs from electrical equipment and lines to help improve the overall quality of your electric service. They will only prune or trim branches and limbs that can potentially cause safety hazards and power outages by brushing against or falling upon power lines during windy weather. There is no doubt trees can cause damage and be damaged in storms. However, appropriately placed and maintained trees can help reduce damage to structures in storms by deflecting wind, and reduce damage to trees. Appropriate actions includes proper placement and planting, and structural pruning prior

to the storm. Species selection can also be somewhat helpful in avoiding some damage. Actions in the weeks and years following a strong storm can help

bring damaged trees back to health. TIPS FOR PRUNING TREES, GETTING READY FOR STORM SEASON If you are going to do it at home without professionals, here are some important tips: • Never cut a branch flush with the trunk, which is also known as making a flush cut. • Avoid “liontailing” or “overlifting,” which consists of removing side branches from a large branch, leaving only those at the distant end, resulting in limbs resembling a lion’s tail. • Never “hat rack” or “top” a tree! It is illegal and potentially dangerous. • Avoid root pruning and digging around tree roots. This makes the tree more likely to fall during a storm. • When pruning, only use removal cuts (prune a branch back to the trunk or parent branch) or reduction cuts (shortens the length of a stem by pruning back to a smaller limb). • Don’t remove more than 25% of the canopy in a single pruning event. Palm trees don’t need hurricane pruning. Palms adapt to wind storms. Removing fronds has no benefit and is detrimental.

Residents should not place items out for collection until notice is given that service has resumed. Failure to comply with these rules may result in a code violation and possible fines.

AFTER A STORM Recovery efforts begin as soon as it is safe after a storm passes. City of Hollywood contractors clear primary corridors and access to critical infrastructure and facilities, then secondary roadways, neighborhood streets and then alleyways. Garbage (solid waste) col-

lections will resume first and will likely be on a modified schedule. This will be followed by the return of recycling services and commingled collections as conditions allow. Finally, as recovery progresses, the City will return to the normal collection schedule. There are things you can do to help speed the process in the event of an emergency. Visit www.hollywoodfl.org and click on “Hurricane Season” under City News. Learn more about how you can prepare for this hurricane season at www.hollywoodfl.org/emergency.

PREPARE YOUR PROPERTY Spring is the perfect time to trim trees and landscaping and remove unwanted debris. Look up before you begin pruning and avoid trimming near power lines. Hollywood residents may drop-off materials, free of charge, at any of the three Residential Trash Transfer Stations in Broward County. Drop-Off Centers are open every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In the event of an emergency, these locations may offer extended hours to accommodate additional debris. Be sure to call 954.765.4999 for the latest Drop-Off Center information and hours of operation. • South Drop-Off Center – 5601 W. Hallandale Beach Boulevard, West Park, FL • Central Drop-Off Center – 5490 Reese Road, Davie, FL • North Drop-Off Center – 2780 N. Powerline Road, Pompano Beach, FL

COLLECTION SCHEDULE When winds greater than 35 mph are forecast to occur in the City of Hollywood within the next two days, residents should plan for sanitation services to be suspended. For example: if the City learns on a Wednesday that winds are forecast to be greater than 35 mph on Friday, notice will be given on Wednesday that sanitation services will be suspended on Friday. Services will remain suspended until winds fall below the 35 mph threshold. This is for the safety and security of collection crews operating high-profile collection vehicles.

“The Best of East Hollywood”

Broward County announced the appointment of Tracy Jackson as Director of Regional Public Safety/Emergency Services. Jackson will lead the operations of the Office of Regional Communications and Technology, which manages Broward County’s consolidated regional E-911 system, and Emergency Management Division, which is responsible for emergency planning response, mitigation and recovery activities. He'll start later this month. Jackson began his 21-year career in public safety with the

6 Health Safety Tips For This Hurricane Season

While it’s hard for Floridians to forget the impact of last year’s hurricane season, new research from health and well-being company Humana confirms those storms, and particularly Hurricane Irma, impacted more than our homes and the environment – it impacted the health of residents in Broward County. According to the 2018 Bold Goal Progress Report, Humana’s Bold Goal communities of Tampa, Broward County and Jacksonville saw increases in Unhealthy Days in their Humana Medicare population in the months after the hurricanes hit. In fact, Broward County saw a 2.5% decline in Healthy Days several months after hurricanes Irma and Maria, with Mentally Un-

healthy Days especially being affected. Healthy Days measures the mental and physical feedback of thousands of area residents, and is captured through a telephone survey using the CDC’s Healthy Days tool. While Broward residents prepare for the 2018 hurricane season that starts June 1, Dr. Louis Fernandez, Humana Medicare Medical Officer is sharing the following Six Health Safety Tips to help ensure the health of Broward residents – especially those living with chronic health conditions – isn’t impacted this year: Enhance Your Emergency Kit: As you prepare your emergency kit with flashlights, food, first aid supplies, medicines and more, be sure to in-

clude copies of your health insurance cards, identification cards, doctors and pharmacy contact information, medication details. Diabetics should include blood glucose testing supplies including lancets, test strips and at least two glucose meters with extra batteries and a cooler with multiple re-freezable pack. Make the Most of Mail Order: Take advantage of 30- to 90-day mail order services from your health benefits provider to ensure you don’t run out of medicine if businesses are closed or you are away from home. For example, Humana offers RightSourceRX, which delivers up to a threemonth supply of your medication by mail. Note the Necessities: To avoid forgetting critical medical equipment during emergency evacuations, make a list of what you would need to take with you, such as a cane, walker, glasses, insulin, and hearing aids and batteries. Benefits of a Battery Back-up: If you or a loved one require power to op-

erate medical equipment – such as oxygen, nebulizers or sleep apnea masks – be sure to secure a generator or alternate power source early in the season to avoid scrambling for this equipment right before the storm. Sign up for a Special Needs Shelter: Special Needs Shelters are temporary emergency facilities capable of providing care to residents whose medical condition exceeds the capabilities of the Red Cross Shelter but is not severe enough to require hospitalization. If you or a loved one need these services, be sure to pre-register by contacting your county emergency management office now so you can secure a spot in the shelter during an emergency. Ask for Help: Don’t hesitate to ask for assistance, whether it’s for a physical injury, if you are experiencing depression or need additional resources. Seeking support early on will only help, as untreated conditions will eventually worsen and be more difficult in the long run.

Put a healthy meal on the table the whole family will love new, fresh foods," says Burson. She recommends bringing your kids shopping to select new produce and having them roll up their sleeves and assist in the kitchen. 4. Mix the familiar with the unfamiliar. As an example, pair arugula with blackberries, sliced cucumbers and fresh dill for an "ABCD" salad. "The sweetness of the berries is a great complement to peppery arugula and fresh cucumber. And the dill brightens the whole combo," says Neumen. 5. Make it fun. The more interactive and handson kids can be with their food, the better. Add healthy dip options to encourage them to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Here's one dip recipe courtesy of School Nutrition Plus:

(BPT) - When kids are exposed to delicious meals prepared with fresh ingredients in their homes, they are more likely to make healthier choices away from home. Registered Dietitian Emily Burson and Executive Chef Brandon Neumen, founders of School Nutrition Plus (SNP), are inspiring families to cook together with the healthy recipes they serve students in the school cafeteria. The dietitian and chef duo share their approach to kids' nutrition in their new cookbook, "A Chef Walks Into a Cafeteria ... Healthy Family Recipes from California's Premiere School Food Company." They offer the following tips to put a healthy, scratch-cooked meal on the table the whole family

will love - and how to get kids involved in the process! 1. Start slow. Shifting your family's mealtime to 100 percent scratch-cooked meals doesn't need to happen overnight. "Start by introducing one new recipe each week to your family," says Burson. "Here's the payoff: Once you've tried it and your kids give your dish the thumbs up, you'll want to cook this way more often." 2. Be a healthy role model. School staff engages with kids as they try new items because they're more likely to accept it. Mealtime is an opportunity to educate and lead by example - whether it's in the school cafeteria or at the dinner table. 3. Involve kids. "The more kids are involved with how and what they eat, the more likely they are to try

BLACK BEAN HUMMUS WITH GREEN PEPPER TRIANGLES • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper • 1 garlic clove, minced • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced in triangles • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish

1. Place all ingredients, except green bell pepper and cilantro, in food processor and blend until smooth. 2. Transfer dip to a small bowl. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Dip bell pepper triangles into hummus. Prep options: Raid the produce section to make this dip fun. Red bell peppers, as well as carrots and cucumbers, also make good dippers for this hummus. These five simple tips will help you improve the nutritional quality of your family's foods, create tasty meals everyone will enjoy, and develop healthy eating habits for life.

SOUTH FLORIDA SUN TIMES WEEKLY FITNESS TIPS As the weather turns warmer, we have some fitness tips that may be helpful: BUY A JOURNAL. Often people get down in the dumps because they are on autopilot, going through their days just doing what they have to do. Writing in a journal or a notebook allows you to connect … with you. It may surprise you what comes off the tip of your pen and your thinking on paper may lead to some new insights for you. IF YOU HAVE A DESK JOB, CONSIDER A STANDING WORKSTATION. Or at the very least,

stand up when you use the phone. If you are somewhere you can pace while using the phone, even better. People in constant motion burn more calories. DON’T START AND STOP, JUST KEEP GOING. One great way to kill your confidence is to constantly start and stop your fitness regimen. It’s common for people to get psyched up and dive in to working out only to drop it altogether when the craziness of life intervenes. If you start overly ambitious, you are less likely to stick with your routine. If exer-

cise is new to you, start off slow and aim for a few workouts per week and then increase as you go. RAMP IT UP SLOWLY. If you hate exercise or have a challenge with time—getting it on your schedule—make incremental changes each week. Aim for 20 minute workouts at first. Or start with walking. Build upon your healthy habits each week—adding more time to your workouts or working out more frequently. You can ramp up your healthy eating habits in the same way—one small improvement at a time.

If an injury or illness kept you out of work, could you pay your bills? (BPT) - You helped friends move their furniture; now your back is so sore you can't move. You could be out of work and unable to collect at least three paychecks. Your doctor says you've eaten your last baconwrapped hot dog, or your health could keep you out of work for four paychecks. You made a diving catch to clinch the win for the company softball team. Though you were carried off the field a hero, you'll be away from the office for eight paychecks. We're all temporarily able-bodied - no one is immune from an unexpected illness or injury. One in four of today's 20-year-olds will experience a disability before they hit retirement age, according to a June 2016 Social Security Administration fact sheet. Back injuries, heart attacks, knee replacements or other disabling conditions can leave workers without a paycheck and employers short-staffed. Based on the average time out of work for each ailment as reported by MDguidelines.com (which assumes a medium-duty job classification), these conditions could put employees out of commission for six weeks, eight weeks or 16 weeks, respectively. Yet, less than 30 percent of American workers have disability coverage, according to a 2018 LIMRA survey. Those counting on the government to provide disability payments are often disappointed: The latest Annual Statistical Report on the Social Security Disability Insurance Program shows that nearly 70 percent of SSDI claims are denied and less than 40

percent of those claims are approved upon appeal. Insurers like Prudential Insurance Company of America have come forward to fill the gap, offering employer-sponsored disability coverage, absence management and return-to-work solutions. "No one imagines their livelihood being threatened by an injury or disability, even for a short time," says Jim Gemus, a senior vice president for Prudential Group Insurance. "The statistics show it's something we need to be concerned about." Risk of a debilitating injury isn't limited to physically demanding, blue-collar work. Disabling illnesses and accidents often happen outside the workplace like at a softball game. With more than 1,170 short-term and 1,645 longterm disability clients, Prudential saw a need to provide easy-to-use tools to help workers and employers understand how much coverage they may need. Prudential's Disability Insurance Needs Estimator calculates the expected amount based on age, marital status and income. Disability insurance helps pay a portion of these costs, reducing the financial burden at a time when individuals can least afford any additional stress. "A good employer-sponsored disability insurance plan not only helps protect employees' financial wellness, it also helps businesses handle the costs and complexities of disability management," Gemus says. "Our main concern is helping individuals pay the bills so they can recover and get back to work." That may be the biggest benefit to employers who

provide disability insurance. After all, every winning company softball team needs to keep its stars on the field.
