#1 in series: Excerpts from Lake Worth’s Worst Local Newspaper Ever*: “Domine, ut videam” [Lord, I want to see]?

“1 Year Subscription: Only $39!” But tabloid was FREE, delivered for FREE to select neighborhoods in the City and shut down 4 months later?

From Friday, March 13th, 2015, Volume 1, Issue 9, front page above the fold:

“I am your voice in City Hall,” he [newly-elected Commissioner Maier at election party with Commissioner McVoy] told them.
     Maier hugged a number of those gathered, who included former commissioners JoAnn Golden and Cara Jennings, and at one point, wiped his eye.

     “We all get along,” said Laurence McNamara, a former mayoral candidate who is friendly with both sides. “There was no animosity.”

     “It’s a big deal for us,” said Laurel Decker, who filed suit against the city in 2013 . . . “We’d like to get the dais back, and get the city moving forward again.”

Have any of those old tabloids left over from the March 2015 election cycle?

Or used them all to clean windows? Local stores were first puzzled by the drop in sales of Windex® in early 2015.§ To clean windows with vinegar use 2 cups of water, ¼ cup of vinegar, and ½ teaspoon of liquid detergent.

Footnote section (please note, footnote order and content may change):

*This “Premiere Issue!” of the tabloid first appeared on January 16th, 2015, with the headline, “Gallery Owner Pitches ‘Art Ship’ for Lake Worth’s Waterfront”.
There wasn’t another volume to follow. The tabloid failed from little advertising even though it was given away for free. Downtown littering became a big problem throughout the City following this tabloid’s release.
Several archival collections remain—separate from and not to be mixed with The Lake Worth Herald—the City’s oldest business, “Established in 1912”.
§Vinegar is a liquid consisting of about 5–20% acetic acid (CH3COOH), water, and other trace chemicals, which may include flavorings.” For cleaning windows don’t use products containing sun-ripened grain, lemon pepper, or dried dill.
‖For later use.
