Mayor’s Message: Sept. 4

first_imgDear Friends,I would like to thank everybody for their precautions, patience and understanding during this extraordinary summer. Summer is busy, fun and always too short. Please take the time to enjoy a safe and healthy holiday weekend with your family and friends.The Army Corps of Engineers is wrapping up its beach replenishment work, and all restored beaches will have full access for the holiday weekend. The combined cost of this work with a similar Sea Isle City project was about $37 million, and the federal and state government picked up more than 91 percent of Ocean City’s share.While it was an inconvenience to have this work completed during the summer, Ocean City will always be exceptionally grateful for the coastline protection provided through this ongoing agreement.Starting today, the governor will permit restaurants to open their doors at 25 percent capacity. It has been an extremely challenging summer for all local businesses, so please eat and shop locally.We have extended our Ocean City Beach Patrol coverage through Sept. 20. After Labor Day Weekend, nine beaches will be guarded through Sept. 20 and six through Sept. 27. In addition, rapid response teams will be on hand to assist. Visit www.ocnj.us/ocbp for more information.Starting Sept. 14, our Community Services Department will provide after-school programs for local youth in response to the limited classroom schedule for public schools. Families are so important right now, and this is an opportunity for us to help them out. We’re all worried about getting sick, but mental health is equally important. These programs will offer opportunities for socialization and learning to local youth. Learn more about these programs and how to register.The lights on the Route 52 causeway bridges will be lit gold for September in recognition of Children’s Cancer Awareness Month. The color gold symbolizes how precious children are and the resiliency of childhood cancer heroes. Lighting the bridge is just one small way of showing our support.The weekly farmers market 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the grounds of the Ocean City Tabernacle has been extended through Sept. 30, and our popular beach exercise classes have also been extended through the month.Our annual 9/11 ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. Sept. 11 outside Fire Department headquarters on the 500 block of Asbury Avenue.Work will resume Tuesday (Sept. 8) on the Cape May County Municipal Utility Authority’s wastewater main replacement project on Bay Avenue. Please expect limited delays and detours as pipe work continues through about Nov. 1. The roadway should be fully restored and paved by Dec. 1.Twice-a-week trash and recycling pickup will continue through Sept. 12. The off-season schedule of weekly routes will begin on Monday, Sept. 14.Finally, I would like to pass along the sad news of the passing of Sylva Bertini. Many of us know Sylva from Ocean City Home Bank, where she rose from bank teller to vice president. Earlier in her life, she and her family ran J&B Delicatessen at 31st Street and Asbury Avenue.Sylva also volunteered with the Ocean City Ecumenical Council Food Cupboard, the Ocean City Historical Society, the Friends of the Ocean City Pops, Shore Memorial Hospital and Saint Damien Parish. I hope you will join Michele and me in extending deepest condolences to all of Sylva’s family and friends.Again, I hope you have a great holiday weekend and take advantage of what looks like some spectacular weather ahead of us.Warm regards,Mayor Jay A.

Too much jogging is ‘unhealthy’

first_img Tweet National guidelines suggest exercising for 150 minutes a weekToo much jogging may be as bad for you as not putting on your running shoes at all, a report in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology says.Scientists studied more than 1,000 healthy joggers and non-joggers over a 12-year period.Those who jogged at a steady pace for less than two and a half hours a week were least likely to die in this time.But those who ran more than four hours a week or did no exercise had the highest death rates.‘Upper limit’Analysing questionnaires filled out by all the people in the Danish study, scientists concluded the ideal pace was about 5mph (8km/h) and that it was best to jog no more than three times a week or for 2.5 hours in total.People who jogged more intensively – particularly those who jogged more than three times a week or at a pace of more than 7mph – were as likely to die as those who did no exercise.Researcher Jacob Louis Marott, from the Frederiksberg Hospital in Copenhagen, said: “You don’t actually have to do that much to have a good impact on your health.“And perhaps you shouldn’t actually do too much.“No exercise recommendations across the globe mention an upper limit for safe exercise, but perhaps there is one.”Scientists are not yet sure what is behind this trend – but they say changes to the heart during extreme exercise could contribute.‘Brisk walking’In their report, they suggest: “Long-term strenuous endurance exercise may induce pathological structural remodelling of the heart and arteries.”Maureen Talbot, senior cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, said: “This study shows that you don’t have to run marathons to keep your heart healthy.“Light and moderate jogging was found to be more beneficial than being inactive or undertaking strenuous jogging, possibly adding years to your life.“National guidelines recommend we do 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity a week.“It may sound like a lot, but even brisk walking is good exercise. And if you’re bit of a couch potato, this is a good place to start.” 199 Views   no discussions Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share Share HealthLifestyle Too much jogging is ‘unhealthy’ by: BBC News – February 3, 2015last_img read more
