Independence Day. We’re less than a month away. Press, news media, and Flolfie too? “Run! It’s Here! Toxic Blue-Green Algae!”

Unthinkable: Did Flolfie conspire to cancel last year’s NAPC July 4th Great American Raft Race?

Remember this from last year?
Do you remember the press and media stories last year? Did our beloved Flolfie really dump “Toxic Blue-Green Slime” into our Intracoastal? You decide. Watch the video below.

Stay away from the water! Don’t rent any kayaks or go canoeing in the Intracoastal! Don’t go near the water to take any pictures of the Oystercatchers at Snook Islands either!


“The Raft Race is very popular and a favorite in Lake Worth and I feel very bad that this is happening but the fact is there is a health issue
—Quote in Palm Beach Post, dated June 29th, 2016, just 5 days prior to the NAPC Raft Race.

If the “fact is there is a health issue” in our Intracoastal why did the tests from the South Florida Water Management District come back with negative results for any so-called ‘toxic algae’ from Lake Okeechobee last July? Another quote:

“Creating a place for paddling, fishing and nature observation is a side benefit of the restoration work. The Snook Islands Natural Area features a boardwalk and gazebo overlooking the mangrove islands, educational kiosks, day-use boat docks, a fishing pier and a kayak launch on the northwest side of the Lake Avenue Bridge.”
—Quote in The Coastal Star, dated May 3rd, 2017, 24 days ago. Learn more about reporter Willy Howard’s “Paddling the habitats of Lake Worth Lagoon” using this link.

Remember all those false and misleading news reports last year? Because of all that nonsense has this year’s 16th Annual Great American Raft Race been cancelled? Has anyone heard any news?

And a frightening thought: did Lake Worth’s own beloved Flolfie work along with the press and news media to cancel last year’s Raft Race? You decide, “DJNA BUSTED!”*

Is this really Flolfie or an impersonator?

Teachable moment. Invite rafts from neighborhoods along waterways in Martin and St. Lucie County still on septic. Come down and see how responsible communities deal with feces and pee. Our human waste gets collected by sewers and sent for disposal to a treatment plant. We can have a moment of silence before the race to pray for people who still dump human waste in estuaries. The entire length of Florida Keys is hooking up to sewer because they care and don't want to pollute the water any more. Cancel the race sends wrong message. LW needs to celebrate our clean waterways. Don't scare our kids here. Scare the kids up there who have families still on septic systems. LW worked hard and spent a lot of money on sewage systems many years ago. Because it is real expensive now to hook up to sewers is no excuse. It was expensive when we did it.
