Great advice from The Palm Beach Post, “Lake Worth [Beach]: Stay local”.

Excerpts from the former Editor of the Editorial Page, Randy Schultz, an editorial published in The Palm Beach Post on January 22nd, 2007:

“Now that Lake Worth commissioners have solved Iraq, they can get back to working on problems closer to home.”

and. . .

     “There’s still plenty of opportunity for the electric upgrade and beach project to go wrong, so competent leadership is essential. But competent leadership has to start with the commission. And it will be measured by what happens in Lake Worth, not Iraq.” [emphasis added]

“Commission ‘solved’ Iraq, passed buck”

“Lake Worth: Stay local”

By the way, the list below was the former leadership at the Post:

  • Tom Giuffrida, Publisher.
  • John Bartosek, Editor.
  • Charles Gerardi: General Manager.
  • Bill Rose: Managing Editor.
  • Randy Schultz: Editor of the Editorial Page.
  • Jan Tuckwood: Associate Editor. . . .

And then the Post was put up For-Sale in November 2017, bought by Gatehouse Media in May 2018, the Post headquarters on Dixie Hwy. in West Palm Beach (which does not have a beach) was sold this year but the editor(s) at the Post that still remain there are the very same ones from Nov. 2017 that continue to send out reporters looking to create even more problems in other places like in the City of Lake Worth Beach which has been doing a very good job coming up with solutions for sea level rise and doing a whole lot of other very responsible things. . .

Go figure.
