Look what I found...

This was a picture taken when I worked for the Trump Organization. Mr. Trump is receiving an award for innovative construction techniques from the Florida Society of the American Institute of Building Design. The award was given in February of 2001.

Excuse the Dust...

I'll be making some adjustments today to the blog, so enjoy your visit while you watch some visual changes take place.


Later: I think the changes are fairly complete. Let me know what you think. The banner turned out well; I used a portion of one of the old postcards of the Casino building and applied some Photoshop effects to it. Then used that as a palette for other parts of the site. Let me know also if you think the text is too large or too small. Tried to make the site easier to read and navigate.

The number of unique users per day keeps climbing. Thank you for coming by and I hope you enjoy your time here.

Must Read ALERT!!

Check out the video on the Florida Chamber of Commerce's website. It's about mid-way down the home page.

This from Jim McCauley...

Someone forwarded this e-mail to me from some domain in Japan! Its original recipient was Tom Ramiccio, former Mayor and current head of the Greater Lake Worth Chamber of Commerce.

I think it speaks for itself. Remember, you will see more detail by clicking on the image.

Lots of other stuff re the Beach on my TalkBlog

See link at right side of page that will take you to the Truth Matters blog on Lake Worth site. The show will be back next Sunday night from 8 to 9 p.m. where we will review the Beach project and all that is happening surrounding that topic.

I will attempt to post a similar display of exhibits here in the near future, time permitting.

One of the "Top Secret" Petitions re: the Beach

This is a copy of a highly guarded and private petition being circulated relating to the repeal of the Beach and Casino future land use designation. There are two others being circulated, most likely corresponding to the change of the future land use map and implementing of the Beach and Casino zoning district.

If anyone has the other versions of the petitions, let me know and I will post them here. This one happened to be dropped at my front door - perhaps by a defector?
