If you see any coyotes near your horses in the City call Ari Hait

The only horses you'll see in the City of Lake Worth are the horses PBSO uses on occasion. That didn't stop Ari Hait from ABC5/WPBF from reporting about coyotes in "Lake Worth". You can read about Homeland where Ari Hait did his news report from. From the Homeland website:
     A rural setting with all the conveniences of the city, in fast-growing unincorporated Palm Beach County, Homeland is an equestrian’s dream with miles of interior bridle paths, paved roads, with the convenience of shopping, theaters, and dining minutes away. It is a place to accommodate everyone, not just for the equestrians.
     Platted in 1980, Homeland is governed by a Homeowners Association with a five-member Board of Directors. It is a rural environment with all the amenities of city life, the best of both worlds.
     Homeland is located in Palm Beach County just south of Lake Worth Road just west of State road 7 on the outskirts of Wellington just minutes from the National Horse Show.
Again, for Ari Hait and the rest of the news media here is a special class: What is Lake Worth and what is not Lake Worth, A primer on what is called 'Suburban [or Unincorporated] Palm Beach County'.

Part of the lesson is this map:
Others are not too happy about the sloppy reporting vis-à-vis the locations given in TV news reports. Below is a viewer of NBC5/WPTV none too happy about their reporting:
And so it goes. If anyone in the news media would like me to give a personal lesson on this subject please feel free to email and we'll set up a time and place.
