SIXTEEN (16) DAYS LATER: Very big news from the little City of Lake Worth goes unreported, ignored in The Palm Beach Post.

On Feb. 13th news about the high-level meeting the previous day at the Casino was posted on this blog and on Feb. 16th reported in The Lake Worth Herald. Since then no reporter at the Post has shown any interest whatsoever informing the public in Palm Beach County about this:

The prospect of the City of Lake Worth becoming the research and development “epicenter” of Ocean Wave Energy Generation worldwide is a very real one:

Mayor Pam Triolo: “[W]e are no longer the ‘old’ Lake Worth.” Since this news first broke on Feb. 13th it’s gone unreported in the Post.* An excerpt from this blog:

“The topic of the Southeastern National Marine Renewable Energy Center (SNMREC) and the Dept. of Energy was discussed last night [Commission meeting, Feb. 21st] by Mayor Pam Triolo and Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell. The reason why Maxwell missed the Commission meeting on February 7th was because he was in Washington, D.C. discussing this crucial topic with Federal officials.

How big is this news? Real big. County Commissioner Dave Kerner talked about this at his recent neighborhood meeting [Feb. 20th] in the City. When it’s great news about the City of Lake Worth and The Palm Beach Post is ignoring it you know it’s big (note: this news was reported in The Lake Worth Herald on Feb. 16th ).”

*This is not unusual. The news about Commissioner Ryan Maier dropping out of his race for re-election on December 27th went unreported in the Post for 34 days.
