The 1920s also saw comple- tion of the Gulf Stream Ho- tel, on the National Register of Historic Places." (Wiki page last edited April 23rd)

Sea level rise, North 'J' St. in Lake Worth, and 2014 bond vote that failed by just 25 votes. . .
A reason given why voters should reject the 'LW2020' bond vote was because of "concerns" about rising sea levels. It's been 21 months since that vote. Question: Been down North 'J' Street lately Commissioner Chris McVoy, PhD? Click on 'pothole' to refresh your memory.

A true 'community newspaper' would never publish a false news report about a "curfew"
But that's what The Palm Beach Post did. Click on "Curfew?" Remember this next time somebody from the Post comes calling with a big smile and a notebook.
Can't make this stuff up: "I got to know my sober home neighbors, and I'm glad I did":
On addicts in Lake Worth the resident writes, ". . . some relapse. Others hang them- selves. . . Some relapsers die with needles in their arms or need an ambulance in the middle of the night, or police intervention to calm disturb- ing behavior." Thankfully, U.S. Rep. Frankel, and many others, are working hard to solve this crisis:

Did you know 2 of "19 Best Environmentalists in South Florida" are in Lake Worth?
Both work real hard to stop anything from moving for- ward in this 6 square mile coastal City but are blind to western sprawl? Anotherhuge development coming to Lake Worth Rd. west of the City. But. . . the City starts a project to improve street lighting and that's a problem? Could the real problem be we need better environmentalists?
Is Lake Worth selling its BEACH! Of course not. That's just silly.
The BEACH! always was, is, and will forever remain a public beach. Click the red/ white sign above to learn about the Silly Red Sign (SRS) Brigade.

“Lake Worth is walkable, bike-able, has a ton of amenities for its residents and visitors, as well as an active social calendar,” said resident Tammy Pansa. “You can move here knowing absolutely nobody and end up not being able to walk downtown on Lake Avenue without saying ‘hi’ to at least half a dozen people. It is a city that celebrates culture and diversity.”—Quote from Palm Beach Post, Sunday, March 20th, 2016.

Political Monkey- wrenching 301: Taking advantage of absences at government meetings
Note how the two elected's in the video below took advan- tage of a mayor's absence. This forced an agenda item to a future meeting, wasted tax dollars, and created more political divisiveness. Learn more using this link. And how did they do it? Watch for yourself:
Not happy about this? Be patient. Next election in Lake Worth is March 14th, 2017.
Lake Worth is named in honor of General William Jenkins Worth:

Should City change its name to "Lake Worth Beach"?
Click image above. The Palm Beach County news media, both print and especially the TV news, has consistently confused our City with western communities. For a long time those false news reports have damaged our image. Unfairly. Is it time to take charge of our own City brand? Differ our City from all those areas that just share a "Lake Worth" zip code with our 6-square-mile City?
The City's Casino was "Greenwashed". Click sand pile to learn more:
The former Casino was demolished in 2011 to make way for 'renovated' structure. Then there's a looming possible default declaration. And the failed business plan. And the water leaks when it's raining. . .
