UPDATE: It’s now two hundred and thirty-two (232) days — nearly eight months — and still counting. . .

. . . since the last editorial by the editor at
The Palm Beach Post about the little
City of Lake Worth.

So. Wouldn’t now be a good time for the editor to pen an editorial acknowledging all the hard work and accomplishments by City Manager Michael Bornstein, the City staff, management and coöperation, plus the elected leadership as well here in the little, vibrant, and no-longer-‘inching’ BUT LEAPING City of Lake Worth?

It’s been 232 days. . .

“It’s inexplicable, peculiar, atypical, unparalleled, odd and yes, even a bit remarkable too.”

The last editorial published in The Palm Beach Post about our little City was prior even to Hurricane Irma on August 28th, 2017. Hard to believe but it’s true. Our City used to be a quite frequent topic, or target if you will, on the editorial page.

Learn more about the last editorial published about our City in the Post later on in this blog post.
It was a doozy.

But as far as doozy’s go, nothing will ever come close to that silly editorial published in April 2016 that was the subject of a lot of fun, jokes, and even a Letter to the Editor by a City resident titled,

The City that dines together. . .”

One last question: When was the last time the editor(s) focused all their attention and energy on the City of Greenacres and wrote an editorial about that city? Or Lake Clarke Shores here in Central Palm Beach County? Lantana? Palm Springs? The Great Walled City of Atlantis?

There is no answer to that question. It’s a mystery.

Hard to believe, it was all the way back on Aug. 28th since the last editorial in the Post about our City.
What was it about? Find out below.
Without further ado, excerpts from the editorial published in the Post from last August:

The editor wrote,

“As of Friday [August 25th], however, Espinoza [charter school Principal Renatta Espinoza] said she hadn’t been able to contact [Gregg] Roberts and there had been no dialogue.” [emphasis added]

Well. The very next day Mr. Gregg Roberts, the chief executive officer of Modern Health Concepts, defending his marijuana dispensary across the street, located at 1125 N. Dixie Hwy. — a major bustling thoroughfare children should always be warned to avoid — wrote a “Point of View” published in the Post:

“’Finally, as a matter of common courtesy, we hope there can be more truth in this discussion. I personally placed a phone call to Academy for Positive Learning’s principal, Renatta Espinoza, which I can only assume was immediately passed on to her attorney, as I received a phone call from him shortly after and we spoke for roughly 30 minutes.”
