Health and Human Services provide a wide variety of services for approximately 10,000 clients in St. Johns County throughout the year.Weve seen the Food for Fines program grow every year since we first implemented it in 2007, said Library System Director Debra Rhodes Gibson. For each item of food donated, a dollar of fines is taken off on their account. Its even supported by our patrons who dont have fines. The whole community gets behind it.Food for Fines is one of several collaborative programs that the St. Johns County Public Library System participates in with other County departments, extending its reach to St. Johns County residents.

Army Corps of Engineers releases draft environmental assessmentNews StaffMon, 01/24/2022 - 10:21 am Coastal erosion in St. Johns County U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced recently the publication for public review and comment of a draft Environmental Assessment and Notice of Availability of a proposed Finding of No Significant Impact in connection with potential future dredging of additional offshore borrow areas to support the St. Johns County Shore Protection Project SPP at St. Augustine Beach and Coastal Storm Risk Management CSRM project at South Ponte Vedra and Vilano Beaches.The districts Preferred Alternative includes dredging borrow areas S-1 for the St. Augustine SPP and N-3 for the CSRM project. It proposes dredging beach compatible sand from the Outer Continental Shelf for the continued renourishment of the authorized project shorelines. Use of the alternate sand sources will serve to supplement, as needed, St. Augustine Inlet Complex sand borrow source sites.The continued use of the St. Augustine Inlet as the primary or only sand source for the St. Johns County projects is unsustainable. The additional, offshore borrow sources are needed to support future nourishment, potential emergency projects, and conceivable future authorized projects to reduce the risk of potential damages from waves, erosion, and storm surge caused by coastal storms to structures and infrastructure along the county shoreline.The proposed action will not change the location or frequency of sand placement directed by the presently authorized CSRM and SPP projects.The publication of the documents and request for public review and comment are in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulation 33 CFR 230.11. Public comment is encouraged and will be accepted for consideration through Feb. 19.The public may view the documents online at www.saj.usace.army.mil/About/Divisions-Offices/Planning/Environmental-Branch/Environmental-Documents.

Make mealtime easy with simple ingredients

Make mealtime easy with simple ingredientsNews StaffThu, 01/20/2022 - 09:30 am Kids and grownups tend to gravitate toward whats simple and accessible, so fill your kitchen with healthy, tasty and nutritious snacks. Raisins contain fiber, vitamins and minerals, and aid in digestion. Maintaining healthy habits and managing schedules for the entire family is often easier said than done. When youre strapped for time, look for food and ingredients with versatility that allow you to balance nutrition with flavor.Plan Ahead by Meal PreppingStart by looking at recipes that highlight ingredients you have on hand. Meal prepping allows you to plan for a week of healthier choices and think creatively about using the same bulk ingredients in multiple ways stretching your grocery budget while eliminating food waste.Add Something WholeAdding fruit is a smart wellness strategy, but some options are better for you than others. One example without any added sugar is raisins a whole-fruit, nutrient-dense option with 0 grams of added sugar per 1/4-cup serving. Easily added to savory and sweet dishes and snacks, raisins are reliably delicious.Raisins do a lot of favors for your body and help keep a body strong, said Wendy Reinhardt Kapsak, MS, RDN, president and CEO, Produce for Better Health Foundation. The whole fruit contains fiber, vitamins and minerals, and they aid in digestion, too. Raisins also add flavor and can act as a better-for-you ingredient. Whole fruits like raisins are a fabulous addition to breakfast cereal, yogurt, salads, fancy party trays and trail mixes, and they are a convenient on-the-go snack that travels well.Swap Recipe IngredientsSubstituting ingredients for more nutrition and less sugar can transform your favorite dishes into healthier versions. Using lean protein in place of a higher fat alternative or switching traditional pasta for zucchini or squash noodles are two popular options for main dishes. You can also make better-for-you baked goods by replacing oil with an equal amount of applesauce in muffins and quick breads or half as much applesauce as oil in a recipe for a cake or cookies.Practice Smart SnackingChoosing snacks that are nutrient-dense and fulfilling can give your body the energy it needs between meals. As a result, youll be less tempted to nibble on empty calories or sit down for a meal feeling overly hungry, which makes it harder to practice portion control. Portable snacks like dried fruit and trail mix are good for an on-the-go pick-me-up.Clean Out the KitchenKids and grownups alike tend to gravitate toward whats simple, tasty and accessible. As you get into routines, use a critical eye to take a look at the choices in your cupboards, pantry and fridge and see where you can make some changes. While an occasional treat is perfectly fine, filling your kitchen with healthy amounts of tasty and nutritious ingredients and snacks makes it easier to form healthier habits that will stick.Find more inspiration for easy and tasty ways to improve your familys nutrition at sunmaid.com.Deliciously Good Dried FruitTraditional dried fruits like apricots, dates, figs, prunes and raisins are filled with nutrients and natural goodness.They are naturally low in sodium and have no saturated fat. Dried fruits also contribute to your daily intake of potassium, which helps maintain healthy blood pressure.Phytonutrients found in dried fruits help suppress the growth of oral bacteria associated with cavities and gum disease.Not only do dried fruits help your digestive system by providing soluble and insoluble fiber, they also contain fructans that are considered prebiotics, which are believed to improve gut health.Naturally fat- and cholesterol-free, a 1-ounce serving of dried fruit contains less than 100 calories.Eating certain whole fruits, including raisins and other dried fruits, is also associated with a lower risk for Type 2 diabetes.

Jacksonville Beach suspends nonessential construction

Jacksonville Beach suspends nonessential constructionBeaches1Wed, 04/08/2020 - 04:51 pm City officials are putting a temporary halt to all nonessential construction in Jacksonville Beach. A notice was issued April 2 by Building Official George Knight and Fire Marshal Steve Sciotto notifying all contractors and private property owners of the new construction-related measures.Work on open-air construction sites is permitted and will be allowed to continue as long as the property remains unenclosed. Any renovation or alteration that is not open air must cease immediately for actively-permitted projects. Active construction sites are required to employ social distancing guidelines and must provide basic sanitation measures to reduce the threat of COVID-19.Outdoor construction can be done. Open air is fine. Once they put windows and doors and a roof on, thats when the interior work has got to stop, said Sciotto. They can do the outside work so they can come back and stucco and everything else. If they leave the doors and windows out, they can do all the interior they want.New construction may move forward as long as it remains open and the citys Planning Department will continue issuing permits. Work must stop at certain stages, Sciotto noted. According to city officials, emergency repairs or other services deemed necessary to maintain the safety, sanitation and essential operation of buildings and critical infrastructure will be permitted. The goal is to maintain the health and safety of the contractors and the community.Like at Target, they were in the midst of remodeling so inside where they were working on their fire alarm and fire sprinkler system, they can complete those because its part of life safety, he said.Jacksonville Beach City Hall is closed to the public, but the Department of Planning and Development will continue to process applications and conduct inspections. Plan review will continue, but permits for nonessential construction will not be issued during the state of emergency. Inspections only will be performed for permitted open construction and the outside of occupied structures for residential and commercial properties.Projects that are deemed unessential must stop construction immediately. Construction companies are required to secure the project site, store or remove construction materials, and remove temporary facilities such as dumpsters. Failure to comply is punishable to the fullest extent allowed by law, according to the notice. The city of Atlantic Beach has also issued a similar directive.Its not wise to put a group of individuals in an enclosed structure for any length of time. Were doing it in a way that is not a risk to the works or the general public, said Knight. My theory is if the house is completely closed up, I dont want you in there. Were working towards trying to get some resolution and keep people working. The whole point is to keep people safe.
