Letter: Kudos To Danowski

By at June 26, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

The people of Loxahatchee Groves finally spoke on Monday. Laura Danowski won the election to Seat #1 on the contentious and anachronistic Loxahatchee Groves Water Control District (LGWCD) Board of Supervisors. At last, the people have a voice on what has, for many years, been a good ol’ boys club, operating solely in its own interest at the expense of the town and more...

Letter: Wellington Should Buy Binks Forest

By at June 19, 2015 | 12:01 am | 4 Comments

It is not just a golf course, it is our community. The Binks Forest golf course is attached to four home sites and steps away from a fifth. It is where we live. We swim there; we exercise there; we eat there; we meet there; we do business there; we play golf there — and if you don’t think so, why don’t you come by sometimes? It’s just around the corner. The more...

It appears that HCA is no longer a participant in contracts with healthcare companies like Humana. Many contract participants in programs like Humana Medicare Advantage will be receiving letters that advise them that as of July 15, they will no longer be admitted to HCA hospitals such as Palms West or JFK. The cost shifting by Gov. Rick Scott’s old hospital more...

Letter: Disappointed By Lox Groves Council Decision

By at June 19, 2015 | 12:01 am | 0 Comment

After attending Tuesday’s meeting of the Loxahatchee Groves Town Council, I came away disappointed yet again that the residents seem to have so little input into decisions made by the council, as it was always my belief that all the councilmen have been elected because they have claimed that they will serve the interests of the residents. This week, it was decided by more...

On Sept. 20, 2013, a Loxahatchee Groves resident of 24 years wrote a letter to the editor titled “Tired of Business As Usual In Groves.” The letter, in part, expressed concerns for the activities found in the commercial district of Loxahatchee Groves. Since town hall has left Palms West Plaza, the loitering, drunkenness and unsavory activity has increased. Even the more...

Bob brings good character, business more...
