News from long-time Palm Beach Post reporter Julius Whigham II.

“While solar and nuclear could be considered as part of our current normal power operations, Lake Worth is audacious enough to take a leadership role that has worldwide implications,” she [Lake Worth Mayor Pam Triolo] said.

Quote. Reporter Julius Whigham on one topic addressed at the State of the City address last evening at the Lake Worth Casino and Beach Complex.

This was BREAKING NEWS last night in the Post, a paper of record in Palm Beach County.

Very exciting news from Mayor Pam Triolo’s State of the City.

Learn more about that news below; first here is a short excerpt, the first paragraph from Whigham datelined 10:30 p.m. and updated one-half hour later:

LAKE WORTH — Addressing a packed room for her annual State of the City address, Lake Worth Mayor Pam Triolo reflected on some of the city’s accomplishments during the past year and laid out her vision for the year ahead.

It’s starting to feel like the curse has been lifted off this City, it was like a black shroud wafting over our streets and roads. When did that curse begin?

A lot of people think that in March 2015 the City of Lake Worth was snakebit. You see, when an elected official that used to be mayor of Lake Worth really, really, really ticks off the governor of Florida, bad things can happen, especially when it becomes news blasted all over Planet Earth.

Political debate is one thing. Grandstanding and making fun of the governor is another thing entirely.

So everyone, please keep this in mind. Angering the governor of Florida is a really bad thing.

And did you happen to miss the news about what happened at the Lake Worth Beach and Casino Complex on February 12th, 2017? Information about that is also below.

In the caption accompanying the first photograph (see below) is a link to the news from the reporter which is a MUST READ today.

Apparently, Mr. Whigham was at Mayor Pam Triolo’s State of the City Address last night. I met Mr. Whigham very briefly many years ago but apparently did not notice him amongst the massive throng last evening.

No doubt Mr. Whigham was not amused when he saw this Tweet. But later on, hopefully, sending that news to many other reporters around the state and country, including a few at the The New York Times made up for that oversight.

My apologies to Mr. Schorsch.*

Have you ever heard of the Southeastern National Marine Renewable Energy Center (SNMREC) at Florida Atlantic University?

There will be much more news from last night to come. A lot more. A really lot more. And get used to hearing the acronym SNMREC at lot too.

But we’ll get to that at a later time.

Setting the stage, the Lake Worth City Commission on stage last evening.
