Guatemalan Maya Center in Lake Worth Beach needs help for Christmas.


This LOCAL community news is published in this week’s LOCAL Lake Worth Herald. Do you have community news you would like to share? At the end of this blog post today is how to contact the editor at the LOCAL community Herald.

Here is the news about the Guatemalan Maya Center:


It’s that time of year again where we can share the joy of the holidays by providing for our children who need it the most.

The director, assistant director, staff and volunteers of the Guatemalan Maya Center are urgently requesting a generous donation in response to the growing community’s need.

The Center has had an increased request from mothers having access to enough holiday food and age appropriate toys for their children. This increase has doubled from last year.

No mother wants to be faced with the devastating prospect of having little or nothing being on the holiday table. No mother ever wants to be in the position of having to dry a child’s tears because their child thought they were not good enough for Santa to come. No one wants to know they could have helped but didn’t.

Donations may be in the form of toys, gift cards, and/or tax deductible monetary contribution made payable to the Guatemalan Maya Center. All direct contributions will be used to continue the good works of the center for hopefully another 30 years.

For more information contact Lucia Barnes at the Guatemalan Maya Center. The Center is located at 430 North G Street in Lake Worth Beach and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., phone 561-547-0085.

A recent press release issued by the City’s public information officer (PIO):


Lake Worth Beach — In-Rel Properties, Inc., a long-term Lake Worth Beach resident has relocated its offices to downtown. This real estate investment firm recently purchased and renovated the former Chase Bank Building at 200 Lake Avenue, a two-story structure comprised of approximately twelve thousand square feet.

 
According to a company spokesperson:

“In-Rel has spent the last two years searching for new headquarter offices. Concerned by the possibility of leaving this wonderful area, we were elated to find this opportunity to remain in Lake Worth Beach. We brought new life to a significant downtown property, contributed towards preserving the local vibe, and secured facilities that will support our growth for years to come.”

In-Rel has now restored the building’s mid-century modern design, a subtle blend of 1950’s Art Deco and futuristic styles. The project preserved downtown’s culture, showing respect for the artistic community, while repurposing the property for new commercial uses. The avant-garde architecture is highly flexible. The interior offers generous open floor plates and high ceilings, making it easy to build out creative, modern, and functional spaces.

The building is situated between Lake Avenue and Lucerne Avenue, just west of the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge. It is in the heart of downtown Lake Worth Beach and within minutes of the Palm Beach Island communities across the bridge. This locale is ideal for a variety of office and retail tenants, including medical, wealth management, boutique law firm, wellness, art gallery, gourmet food market, and restaurant uses.

In-Rel now occupies the building’s top floor and has made up to six thousand square feet on the ground floor available for lease. A quick visit to In-Rel’s offices reveals the exciting possibilities for the use of the available space.

About Lake Worth Beach:

Located in Central Palm Beach County, Lake Worth Beach is a dynamic, multi-cultural city with an individualistic style. People are drawn to the City by its acceptance of different cultures and lifestyles, historic districts, hip downtown and colorful arts district.


Remember! Public safety is a top priority. If you are planning a beach day in Lake Worth Beach leave the plastic straws at home and pack plenty of sunscreen:


Discerning shoppers shop at World Thrift: Taste, style, fashion and shoes!


  Wednesday at World Thrift
is Senior Citizens Day in
Lake Worth Beach!


Shoppers at World Thrift want to know,

“What’s the difference between an Anarchist and an Apatharchist?” Find out the answer below.


People are getting confused because Anarchists and Apatharchists look so alike. In fashion there is the Anarch-style and many of those items are For-Sale at World Thrift. But what makes Apatharchists so different is they,

“Don’t give a ■■■■■ ■■■ ■■■■■■■■ about politics any more!”

Basically, the Apatharchist is a former Anarchist who got tired of attending all those meetings all the time and being told what to do. After hours and hours wondering who is snitching on who many former Anarchists come down with a case of “apathy”: an absence of passion, emotion or excitement.


Apathy  +  Passionless Anarchist  =  Apatharchist.


Apatharchists are more concerned about coffee prices at Starbucks, lobbying IKEA to open a store on Dixie Hwy., talking about real estate and wondering what’s the deal with ‘kicks’ when there are so many other styles of shoes for a woman to choose from?

Every Wednesday is Senior Citizen Day at World Thrift in Lake Worth Beach!


The competition is on for best parking spots, the best shopping spots and restaurants too.

The BIG DAYS at World Thrift are Monday (when all the new and really great stuff is out) and Wednesday (Senior Citizen Day). So you’ll want to get in line early on those days.

The hip and cool World Thrift opened up 3½ years ago. And things have never been the same.

World Thrift, if you didn’t know by now, is located at 2425 N. Dixie Hwy in Lake Worth Beach, open Monday–Saturday, 9:00–6:00 and closed on Sunday. Call 561-588-4050 for more information. Use this link to see some of the incredible fashion and garments available for MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN!

Following your shopping experience pack your stuff in the car and walk across the street for lunch or dinner at Tacos Al Carbon. It’s the new hot spot everybody is raving about in Central PBC and the latest stop on the Taste History Culinary Tour!

Following wave after wave of good news coming from our little City the philosophy of Apatharchism has firmly taken hold here. Adherents include former 60’s-style Anarchists, Millennial-Anarchists, Anarch sympathizers, and affinity members once focused only on the bad news, doom and gloom, and the “Wolf at the Door” that never appeared.

As far as all the other Millennials go, not quite enamored with the Anarchist lifestyle. . .


Are you a Millennial Hipster looking for a place that’s “up and coming”? Do you want to stand out? Make yourself noticed? By definition a Hipster is born about 1980, and is attracted to up-and-coming cities: that’s Lake Worth Beach, Florida!

Having World Thrift located here makes all the sense in the world now. The New Times rated World Thrift one of the best thrift stores ever:


[I]t remains the only place in town to score a vintage silk kimono, a $3.99 collection of mint-condition '70s-era teen magazines, a plethora of options for the next ugly Christmas sweater party, and a White House Black Market dress with the tags still on for ten bucks, all in one afternoon.


However, the looming question remains: are Hipsters really hip and why do they all seem to look alike? Or are they really raging non-conformists who have all conformed?


There are other options as well. You can take another path like the Anarchist Millennials:

Look closely at the written instructions on how
and when to empty the poop bucket. And who
knows, you might even catch an Anarchist

musical while you’re in town.

“. . .look. . . it’s a pool again!”


Newspaper clipping from April 2008.

Click on image to enlarge:

Next time you and your family go to the beach look at that space south of the Casino and wonder, “When will that space not be a pool again?” Why cant it be a skate park? An outside theater? Why is Lake Worth Beach always left ‘holding the water’ for the Town of Palm Beach?
