Approximately 100 Publix associates will be employed at the new store.

“The grand opening of this store has been long anticipated,” said Kim Jaeger, Publix Miami media and community relations manager. “We are excited to be a pedestrian friendly super market in the heart of such a vibrant downtown community. The art-deco façade of the store reflects Lake Worth’s vibrancy and culture.”

Graffiti Hotline Update

The Graffiti Hotline is no longer working. I called 3 times - as a citizen and not as a board member - to report 4 instances of tagging in Mango Groves. Yesterday I was fed up, so I rode my bike to all of the spots with a camera and took pictures. I then emailed the pictures to Captain Silva. By 10am this morning I had a message from PBSO about the graffiti. Below is the email:

"Mr. Smith,
The four locations mentioned will be cleaned up today, 4/18/11. Should you find any additional graffiti, please call the Sheriff's Office and a deputy will respond to photograph the graffiti and forward the report to our Graffiti Unit. Please do not hesitate to call me should you have any questions and thank you for contacting us regarding this issue.

Lieutenant Beth Krivda
Watch Commander
District 14 - City of Lake Worth
561-202-9620 (Office)
561-472-4596 (Cell)"

I strongly encourage you to contact the non-emergency number for any instances of graffiti that you find in Lake Worth. Or you can call Lt. Krivda whose number is above."

Let's keep Lake Worth beautiful!!!
