Lake Worth's Very Very Special Monday Collector Print Edition (VVSMCPE) is every Monday. Each and every Monday and no one knows why.

The good citizens, elected leaders and staff in Riviera Beach, Palm Springs, Delray Beach, Royal Palm Beach, Greenacres, Lantana, Belle Glade, Great Walled City of Atlantis, Pahokee, Lake Clarke Shores, Loxahatchee Groves, and The Acreage are all probably wondering why their cities are being ignored. "What makes Lake Worth so special", they wonder, scratching their heads.

Last week's VVSMCPE was the best one ever! No update on what Ariana did the previous week so stay tuned for more on that. Also conspicuously absent were any references to Hollywood movies:So, how did Lake Worth come to be so very very special each and every week in The Palm Beach Post? Why aren't Greenacres and Palm Springs special? No one knows exactly.
The Post's "In Your Community" section features the same cities, over and over and over again, each and every week. Why can't cities like Greenacres and Palm Springs be special too?

For everyone truly interested in the goings-on in Lake Worth here are some suggestions to get your information unfiltered and straight from the source:
  • For information on City's Neighborhood Streets Bond Program, use this link.
  • To sign up for the City's free newsletter, Worth Noting, use this link.
  • To rent the ballroom at the BEACH!, use this link.
  • For events, new and ongoing, use this link.
  • To learn about City's prestigious International Dark Skies designation, use this link.
  • Do you know who the mayor and commissioners are and what style of government Lake Worth has?
  • Have questions about public safety?
  • The Lake Worth Electric Utility is also a current topic. Do you know who the director is and want to learn more how the utility operates?
  • Heard about the city manager? Use this link to learn more. 
The point is you don't need the Post to educate you about Lake Worth. The City's very own website does that quite well. And FYI, The Lake Worth Herald online edition comes out on Thursday and you can pick up the print edition on Friday at the City's newsstand across the street from the downtown Starbucks on Lake Ave.
The Herald is still just ¢50! The Post costs 3× that.

If you've followed the Post's coverage of Lake Worth you can see how there would be a certain level of trepidation being featured each and every week. Remember the "curfew" nonsense (that was never a curfew at all) that just so happened to precede the municipal elections last March?

In conclusion, browse the City's website to learn more about this little 6 square mile area called Lake Worth. And while you're at it, subscribe to The Lake Worth Herald too. And if you're wondering why Lake Worth is so very, very special to the Post. . . a lot of other people are also wondering about that too.
