Democrats Grandstand and Lose

Comment Up

The Democrats are conceding that Barack Obama's policies have failed and the terrorists have won. By their own standard from the Bush era, they now want to curtail our constitutional rights because they are scared and admit neither their President nor their good Uncle Sam can keep them safe. But they'll be damned if you are allowed to keep yourself safe.

Even the ACLU is against the Democrats.

Quote of the Day - Andy Amoroso

"We've had a lot of problems with homeless people, but they're not really fighting over turf issues. They're just fighting  among themselves.  My biggest problem is they leave their garbage behind and they're urinating all over the place."

~ Andy Amoroso,
Commissioner Lake Worth--View the article

With the 2nd highest number of homeless in Palm Beach County, the Homeless coalition says that housing represents the fundamental base-solution to the problem of homelessness, with the lack of affordable housing and the limited scale of housing assistance programs contributing to the current housing crisis and to homelessness.

Addressing hunger is a moral imperative. Here in Lake Worth we have some churches that help as well as the Burrito Project where volunteers gather every Saturday morning to prepare burritos and sort clothes to share with the homeless at Bryant Park.  There are some citizens who volunteer their services to give haircuts and shaves. And proudly, many of these volunteers attend Common Ground Church.

The City of Lake Worth has struggled with the homeless situation only in the fact that they are here and dealing with citizen complaints, some of whom are downtown business owners. Nothing has been done for them on a government level.

However, the commission just passed an Ordinance (4/1 with Maier dissenting) to give tax free mortgages to qualified poor people but we can't provide even a port-o-let for the homeless. That might stop them from "urinating all over the place."

LED street lights can be harmful

Comment Up

The replacement of our street lights to LED is costing us $3 million big buckeraoos. And we have had complaints about the light intensity. But the city is and has not addressed the harmful effects even though they were brought to their attention. Now the AMA has released its official statement that they may very well be harmful.

AMA Adopts Community Guidance to Reduce the Harmful Human and Environmental Effects of High Intensity Street Lighting

For immediate release:
June 14, 2016

CHICAGO - Strong arguments exist for overhauling the lighting systems on U.S. roadways with light emitting diodes (LED), but conversions to improper LED technology can have adverse consequences. In response, physicians at the Annual Meeting of the American Medical Association (AMA) today adopted guidance for communities on selecting among LED lighting options to minimize potential harmful human and environmental effects.

Converting conventional street light to energy efficient LED lighting leads to cost and energy savings, and a lower reliance on fossil-based fuels. Approximately 10 percent of existing U.S. street lighting has been converted to solid state LED technology, with efforts underway to accelerate this conversion.

"Despite the energy efficiency benefits, some LED lights are harmful when used as street lighting," AMA Board Member Maya A. Babu, M.D., M.B.A. "The new AMA guidance encourages proper attention to optimal design and engineering features when converting to LED lighting that minimize detrimental health and environmental effects."

High-intensity LED lighting designs emit a large amount of blue light that appears white to the naked eye and create worse nighttime glare than conventional lighting. Discomfort and disability from intense, blue-rich LED lighting can decrease visual acuity and safety, resulting in concerns and creating a road hazard.

In addition to its impact on drivers, blue-rich LED streetlights operate at a wavelength that most adversely suppresses melatonin during night. It is estimated that white LED lamps have five times greater impact on circadian sleep rhythms than conventional street lamps. Recent large surveys found that brighter residential nighttime lighting is associated with reduced sleep times, dissatisfaction with sleep quality, excessive sleepiness, impaired daytime functioning and obesity.

The detrimental effects of high-intensity LED lighting are not limited to humans. Excessive outdoor lighting disrupts many species that need a dark environment. For instance, poorly designed LED lighting disorients some bird, insect, turtle and fish species, and U.S. national parks have adopted optimal lighting designs and practices that minimize the effects of light pollution on the environment.

Recognizing the detrimental effects of poorly-designed, high-intensity LED lighting, the AMA encourages communities to minimize and control blue-rich environmental lighting by using the lowest emission of blue light possible to reduce glare. The AMA recommends an intensity threshold for optimal LED lighting that minimizes blue-rich light. The AMA also recommends all LED lighting should be properly shielded to minimize glare and detrimental human health and environmental effects, and consideration should be given to utilize the ability of LED lighting to be dimmed for off-peak time periods.

The guidance adopted today by grassroots physicians who comprise the AMA's policy-making body strengthens the AMA's policy stand against light pollution and public awareness of the adverse health and environmental effects of pervasive nighttime lighting.

Lake Worth High School Officials made Bad call

Politically Correct crap is getting all of us in it's a few high school ball players caught in the trap.

Lake Worth High School officials believing they were making the right call, over-reacted, acted prematurely and threw their own players under the bus.  Now there is a lawsuit.

Katie Mcgiveron speaks to Boynton Beach City Commission

Comment Up

On Tuesday night, Katie Mcgiveron spoke before the Boynton Beach City Commission as they had a Resolution on their Consent Agenda (encouraged by Scott Maxwell to do so)  to approve of the Atlanta Braves coming into John Prince Park.  Following is her public commentary:

Mayor, Commissioners, my name is Katie Mcgiveron. Thank you for allowing me to speak this evening.

I was born at Bethesda Hospital a LONG time ago, grew up in Lantana, and my husband and I made the big move to Lake Worth after we were married. I am the president of my neighborhood association, ROLO, Residents of Lake Osborne. Again, thank you for pulling this item for discussion.

In the packets I sent to each one of you is a map of John Prince Park, a break down of the usable acreage in the park and a card to our Facebook page. I also included an article by Bloomberg News "The Braves Play Taxpayers better than they play Baseball."

To get to the proposed stadium site you must take either Lantana or 6th Avenue South. Right now the 6th Avenue South interchange is such a traffic clogged mess that FDOT has commissioned a study to see how the traffic problems in this area can be solved. The state does not do this kind of thing often or lightly.

John Prince Park is a public park that should never have even  been considered for something like this. Once our park is gone, it's gone. You can't just say "we'll put another park over there." There is NO MORE OVER THERE left in Palm Beach County.

But let's cut to the chase:  MONEY. Money is always the bottom line isn't it.? Your mission statement here in Boynton is as follows: "To create a sustainable community by providing exceptional municipal service in a financially responsible manner." IN A FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE MANNER!

Baseball stadiums are a bad deal for the communities that have to pay for them. Study after study after study is out there, by economist after economist after economist.

Go to the Facebook page John Prince Park Preservation that I gave to you, scroll down and read the articles. Do your research before you jump into a resolution like this. In closing, if I may be so bold, I have some homework for each of you. This weekend, go to John Prince Park and take some time to look around. Maybe even talk to some people using the park. Once this park is gone, it's gone.

Thank you.

Even our border dogs are dying because of Illegals

A canine unit who worked with border agents to apprehend illegal aliens unlawfully crossing the U.S. border died Wednesday of heat stroke while trying to rescue some folks who’d decided they’d just disregard the law and hop across into the United States. Via U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

It’s a dog that died because a bunch of people with no regard for our nation’s laws decided to cross a deadly stretch of land into the United States illegally and got themselves into a bind. Which just seems like a complete and unnecessary waste.
