Please note Dear Readers, the following blog post is about an actual former tabloid here in the little City of Lake Worth and is a satirical look back as well to all that nonsense that happened two years ago. Enjoy!
The painter, I’m told, reached for something to clean a detail brush with when she saw the words, “Domine, ut videam” (translation: “Lord, let me see”). When she saw the headline news story in the tabloid screamed, “My Lord! This is the silliest thing I’ve ever seen in my life!”
What the painter didn’t know at the time is she stumbled across the “Premiere Issue!” of the worst tabloid in the long history of Lake Worth, Florida, “Vol. 1, Issue 1”, that was delivered FREE OF CHARGE on Friday, January 16th, 2015.
|The tabloid was “Always FREE, Delivered FREE” in 2015, had almost no advertising, and folded up shortly after the elections in March of that year.|
Any correlation to the elections that year was purely by coincidence? Draw your own conclusions.
Below is an image from “Issue 9” on March 13th from that tabloid, following the elections on March 10th, 2015. Then-citizen, later a commissioner, and now-citizen-once-again Ryan Maier (beaming, on left) and now-former-Commissioner Chris McVoy, PhD (blue shirt, arms raised), celebrate Election Day victories at Mamma Mia’s On The Beach.
|Former commissioners Maier and McVoy along with jubilant already-former-commissioners JoAnn Golden and Cara Jennings. Are you surprised they all, including the tabloid ‘reporter/editor’, fought the rezoning to save the Gulfstream Hotel?|
