Don’t forget, even though in poor health, it was Loretta Sharpe who first stood up 4 years ago to fight against THE BIG LIE about building heights in Lake Worth. Back in early 2012 THE LIARS got such a huge head start confusing the public that no one thought it was possible to get the truth out: excerpt for Loretta.

And it all started with rallying the troops, “The Hanging of the Banner” from the Gulfstream Hotel (see video below).

Here’s the short version of the story: I got a call from Loretta in January 2013 and she told me there was a meeting at her house, she lived on South Palmway at the time, and my attendance was mandatory. When Loretta told you to be somewhere you better be there. She had ideas to talk about: one of them was hanging a gigantic banner atop the Gulfstream Hotel to win the ‘heights vote’. Everyone thought she had lost her mind. Including myself. But Loretta’s idea was brilliant and everyone noticed. . .
Loretta Sharpe. November 4th, 1938–January 26th, 2016. Oh, and by the way, Loretta got fined by the State of Florida for that banner. And she paid it, all $200 of it, with pride and great fanfare. I recall she had a big party afterward. She was expecting a $500 fine I think.
