Meanwhile, as 'homeless advocates' in Lake Worth try finding a way to force the City into a big, juicy lawsuit. . .

. . . elsewhere there is actual work going on to solve the problem.
If you were following the last election in Lake Worth you'll recall this charming missive from one of the candidates (who lost in a massive landslide).
In The Lake Worth Herald* last week (July 7th edition) is this news about what is happening in our neighboring city to the north:

WEST PALM BEACH — Residents and visitors to West Palm Beach can now help end homelessness with a swipe of their credit card or by dropping spare change into a bright orange meter. The Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County and the City of West Palm Beach has launched the Real Change Movement.
    The program will raise funds to provide homes for those who are experiencing homelessness in West Palm Beach.

[and. . .]

     The Real Change officially kicked off June 30 when West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio made the first donation at the bright orange meter located on the waterfront. The public can make direct donations to the cause at any of ten meters scattered around downtown West Palm Beach.
