Remember the protests earlier in the year when, to a few people, the homeless were the only issue that mattered?

It was at the height of it all (just by coincidence, you see, prior to the City's elections) that the word "curfew" was employed, there were 'protests' at City Hall, and the Commission chambers was packed with people shipped in from Ft. Lauderdale and other places as well. All because the City Commission wrote an ordinance to make the Cultural Plaza safer at night.

At the same time all this was happening there were some Lake Worth residents on business trips and vacation. Enjoy! 

"Have been getting pictures from all over the planet Earth, including from some of my blog readers, of parks being closed to the public and/or ordinances to control who uses a park during certain times of the day. It's not unusual despite what some protesters and others try to claim. It's certainly not 'draconian', or 'criminalizing' people, or even 'throwing the baby out with the bathwater', whatever that is supposed to mean. Hope you're having fun on vacation or your business travel. Sincerely, Wes."
Hope you're all having a good time!  
Literal translation of sign in the image above using Google Translator: "Evacuation plan Vigipirate 4:30 p.m. 5:00 p.m. closed park"

Here's another one!
Translation: "Opening hours of the fountain gardens". Again, no mention of a 'curfew'.
Central Park CLOSED!
