Lake Worth business owner and West Palm Beach Commissioner Shanon Materio in the news

This is a very interesting article from Joe Capozzi at The Palm Beach Post about a historic stained glass window that will be returned to the West Palm Beach public library. Here is an excerpt:
     If City Commissioner Shanon Materio gets her way, the window will return to the library for display next year, ending the latest in a series of storage mishaps that started in 1962.
    “It belongs to the city of West Palm Beach. It’s the city’s window,’’ she said. “My goal is to let it go home and let everybody enjoy it.’’
     Materio and her husband, Phil, who operate McMow Art Glass Studio in Lake Worth, have been the window’s unofficial guardians off and on since 1987, a role that’s part of the piece’s “complicated and convoluted story,’’ she said.
     The story starts not long after World War I, when a soldier named Joseph Conkling was killed in the Argonne Forest in France in 1918.
Shanon and Phil Materio own the McMow Art Glass gallery at 701 N. Dixie Hwy in Lake Worth. In other great news, Shanon was just re-elected to her city commission seat in West Palm Beach. Phil, along with working at the gallery, is also the president of the Tropical Ridge NAPC neighborhood association.

Here is Phil at a recent Lake Worth City Commission meeting with good news from his neighborhood here in the City:
