Attention City of Greenacres.

An important deadline is this Thursday at 5:00 (see below).

Here in Central Palm Beach County political news on any consistent basis between the City of Lake Worth and the Village of Wellington (aka, “flyover County”) is almost nonexistent, unless of course you read The Lake Worth Herald or the Coastal & Greenacres Oberver. For example, the City of Greenacres needs to fill the vacant District 1 council seat; below is more about that published in the Herald last week.

But guess what! Today is the City of Lake Worth’s Very Very Special Monday Collector Print Edition (LWVVSMCPE) in The Palm Beach Post!

Today’s LWVVSMCPE has a photo montage of Lake Worth’s Benzaiten Center by Post photographer Meghan McCarthy.

Delray Beach IS NOT one of them.
FYI: Reporter Lori Hope Baumel at Around Wellington recently had a feature article on the Benzaiten Center: “You too can become an artisan.

So. What does it take to get featured in the Post? Have you tried the “Five Tips from the Business Editor Antonio Fins?
A visit to Downtown Lake Worth isn’t complete without stopping by to chat with Mr. Brian Schlitz at Artsy Fartsy Décor & More.

Without further ado. . .
