Editor at The Palm Beach Post goofs again. Did you see this ‘news’ in the paper today? Local section, page B3:

Lake Worth

Grouper workshop scheduled for July 31st

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has scheduled a public workshop to be held July 31 in Lake Worth to gather input on Goliath grouper management, including the possibility of a limited harvest in Florida state waters.

Is this workshop “in Lake Worth”? No.

This workshop will be held at the Lantana Road Branch Library located at 4020 Lantana Rd. in suburban Lake Worth (directions below). The library’s Zip Code is 33462; please refer to the map below.

And besides, Lantana Rd. doesn’t even go through Lake Worth. Click on image to enlarge:
The editor at the Post needs another lesson on Zip Codes. This map is courtesy of Palm Beach County government.

Would you like more information on Goliath grouper management and the upcoming workshop on July 31st?
