This week, February 17, 2016, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host a public meeting on the replacement of the US 1 Bridge, connecting the Town of Jupiter to the Village of Tequesta.  The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Jupiter Community Center.

Some of the Jupiter beaches north of Marcinski will be shut down for a ten-day period to make way for a ton of sand! Literally, 13,000 tons of sand is being trucked down from Saint Lucie County to be dispersed among the ¼ mile stretch of beach closest to A1A from north of the Reef Club to just south of Carlin Park.

The work will take place during daylight hours from 7am to 5pm. While the beaches and beach accesses will be closed for this ten-day restoration period, the sidewalks will be open.

The beach restoration will help repair the natural damage done to the dunes by storms from the past few years. Native plants will be added to help keep the dunes in place. These dunes are an incredibly important, natural feature that protects A1A and the walkovers…

One of the best features of living in southern Florida is the year round warm weather. Luckily, for us Floridians we often get to walk the beach or surf the waves while the rest of the country is a snow covered, wonderland.

South Florida will continue to be fairly warm and very sunny this week with a cool breeze in the air with temperatures still not beating the season’s record low. 

According the National Weather Service, “the low temperature so far this morning in West Palm Beach was just 44 degrees. While that’s 13 degrees below the normal low for this time of year, it doesn’t beat the 40…

A couple of years ago a Florida man posted pictures on Facebook of himself and his daughters playing with a baby manatee.  Sounds innocent enough but according to the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act, “it is illegal to molest, harass, disturb or touch a manatee”.  The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission authorities arrested the Florida native.

The man had no idea it was illegal to touch the “vulnerable species”.  The man faced a misdemeanor charge that entails a couple hundred dollars fine and a couple months in jail.  He meant no harm to the little manatee.

The manatee is protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, by the Endangered Species Act of 1978, and the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act of 1978.  If convicted of…
