Jet fuel burn-off over West Palm Beach and why relocating to the City of Lake Worth is a good idea.

Before we get to that “dirty, dingy polluted city” have you noticed any changes at The Palm Beach Post? The newspaper was sold to Gatehouse Media on May 1st and the expected “Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!” call didn’t go out. Some of the changes are to the design which is much better and new talented reporters have shown up on the scene too. But after four months the editor(s) are still stuck on the “Six Special Cities” every week and are still carrying way too much water for their fellow travelers in Martin and St. Lucie counties.

But anyhow. . .

Do you live in West Palm Beach in a neighborhood downtown plagued with noise from airplanes all day long and mad as hell? Who do you contact and complain about that “jet fuel burn-off from the planes”? Have you ever thought to yourself, “Maybe I should write a Letter to the Editor(s) at The Palm Beach Post”? Guess what! If you hurry you could have your letter published in the upcoming Sunday edition. For example, here is an example of a letter published in the Post:

“I can’t hear myself — due to the incessant and obscenely loud [noise] that currently plague our residential neighborhood [emphasis added] in downtown West Palm Beach. . . . I wonder why our elected officials have remained silent on the question of protecting the quality of life of their constituents?”

Before getting to why the City of Lake Worth’s Downtown offers a better quality of life and whilst on the topic of letters to the editor as well. . .

“We have watched West Palm Beach change from charming to a dirty, dingy polluted city with increasing numbers in crimes committed, drug abuse and intolerable traffic, especially at the bridges and downtown.
     The 710 planes that flew over our house last week, as always, maximized the pollution we always experience with lack of aviation control. Our pool deck is black with jet fuel burn-off from the planes as they take off and land.”

—Excerpt from a Letter to the Editor in The Palm Beach Post dated January 21st, 2017.

So when it comes to air travel for business or pleasure what’s so special about the City of Lake Worth is we’re very close to the Brightline station in WPB if you’re catching a flight out of Ft. Lauderdale or Miami and the Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) is only minutes away via I-95 but. . . PBI is far enough away that we’re not nearly as severely impacted or plagued by noise from airplanes like West Palm Beach is!

Anyhow. . . Do you have something positive and upbeat to write about the City of Lake Worth on other topics such as traffic too, which is terrible in West Palm? Plus all the many more reasons to get your Hipster and Millennial friends in West Palm to relocate here and be part of all the excitement? Then get cracking and write your own Letter to the Editor today. It only takes 5–10 minutes.

But try to get your letter submitted today for the Sunday edition. The editor(s) needs a little time to verify some information. So get cracking and Good Luck!

And remember. . .

There’s another thing that makes our City so special.

The City of Lake Worth actually does have a BEACH! The only beach West Palm Beach has is a little one on the Intracoastal. Not a real Beach on the ocean with famous restaurants and a Ballroom too like in this tiny City!
