Here along the Treasure Coast, we’re quite familiar with power loss due to storms and hurricanes. It’s just a given that if the winds pick up and blow vegetation onto the lines, or lightning strikes, that we could very well lose power.

FPL – that stands for Florida Power & Light – is on a mission to change that. They’re currently in the middle of a 3-year pilot program to eliminate poles and overhead wires and replace them with underground cables.

We dropped in to see their latest installment in Jensen Beach on the NE corners of Indian Drive and Indian Court.

On Monday, we celebrated Veterans Day, honoring those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.

The first one was in 1919 and was originally called Armistice Day. That’s because World War I was formally ended by Armistice with Germany at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. Thus, 11-11 being the chosen date. The day was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

We rely on technology to do just about everything. So much in fact, that you might think jobs in fiber optics, IT, electrical engineering and such would all be taken and hard to come by.

Turns out, not so!

NCK: The state of the work force – the technical work force – in emerging technical fields is pretty dire nationwide. And of course, lasers and fiber optics is one of those emerging techs where we feel a huge shortage – a huge need – of qualified personnel.
