An error in The Palm Beach Post today (11/18), page B9, above the fold

Here is the article that appears in the digital edition. The canal mentioned in the article, the E-4 (Keller) Canal, is east of another location in Palm Springs that a blogger in Lake Worth mistook for Lake Worth. The Walmart on 10th Ave, in case you didn't know, is in Palm Springs. Here is an excerpt from the Post article:
[. . .] how a healthy man in his 20s drowned in the canal behind Flanigan’s Seafood Bar & Grill on 10th Avenue in Lake Worth. [emphasis added]
Flanigan's Bar & Grill is in unincorporated Palm Beach County correctly also called Suburban Lake Worth (SLW). The property on the other side of the canal is also in SLW. The location of the unfortunate death of a young man found in the canal is almost equidistant (east/west) between Palm Springs and the City of Lake Worth. The Lake Worth Park of Commerce which has been in the news recently is south of 10th Ave and east of the canal (along Boutwell Rd.). Phew!

The definitive answer on the actual location of a property is finding the address or owner of the property and going to the Palm Beach County Property Appraiser website. For information purposes only: The Lake Worth campus of Palm Beach State College is also not in Lake Worth. But many people think it is.
