WHAT’S A TOWN GOTTA DO TO GET PRESS AROUND HERE?…..

What’s Fort Lauderdale have that we don’t have?…

What’s the POA President / Future’s Editor know that others do not?….

Is there a major snafu in getting the word out?….

Why does it feel like the Sentinel snubs LBTS?….even in their sister publications….

Once again… a missed opportunity…..

In this Thursday’s Hi- Riser… issue…page 4…a 1/2 page article  for our neighboring town to the south…. Fort Lauderdale….their schedule…their fireworks….proudly  authored by Alexia Campbell…Sun-Sentinel Staff Writer…

(The same Alexia Campbell that accommodated … the Future’s Editor a few weeks back with a spread in the Sentinel…about the USO…. LBTS  vacation weekend recipient….)

next to the article with its big…bold….headline….

A box….

‘LBTS anounces fireworks”

With the outstanding signs made by Town Photographer Marc Furth…now in place near most entries to Town…what will surely be the most extravagant event this Town has ever witnessed…….pulling out all the stops…with a new venue….El Prado Park/Parking Lot…. with classic cars…numbering over 50… the kiddie “playground” set to amaze the young ones… snow- cone machine…beer truck…. Peggy from Aruba…..overseeing the food….along music up to Aruba’s standards…a grand prize raffle of a 50 inch Plasma T.V…….the  “Sand Castle Sculpture” artist flown in thanks to an underwriter…that will surely be the show stopper ….leading up to the return of Jazz on the Square …and of course the fireworks…. JAM PACKED…. …WOW!….

It all follows a parade with more floats…more politicians…more digntaries…than this town has ever witnessed……
