Yard Of The Month
•    This month’s TRNA Yard of the Moth award goes to Benjamin Pogue who resides at 406 North F Street.  The YOTM sign has been posted in his yard and a photograph of his beautiful property will soon be available on
Upcoming Crime Prevention Walks
•    Saturday September 26th at 6:00pm.

•    All crime walks will begin at the First Church of the Nazarene, located at 1422 Lucerne Avenue.  Please invite your neighbors!
Code Enforcement
•    During a commission meeting on September 11th it was discussed that an unknown percentage of the code enforcement staff positions were to be eliminated.  To my knowledge, this action has not yet been taken and is to be discussed again at the meeting on September 23rd. If you have any questions or concerns regarding these actions please contact Lake Worth's City Manager at or 561.586.1630.  
PBSO Updates
•    Lieutenant Craig Long gave some crime statistics for the past two weeks.  The lieutenant told us that the TRNA currently has a lower vehicle burglary rate than most of the city, even lower than the College Park area. Keep up the good work by continuing to lock your doors and removing ALL items from view when leaving your vehicle unattended.

•    This sounds a little silly, but the PBSO continues to push it down our throats that people are not paying attention to this message...  LOCK THE DOORS AND WINDOWS TO YOUR HOME this prevents people from breaking in, stealing your stuff and hurting the ones that you love.  Do it!

•    The undercover burglary detail that we were told about in June is still underway in our neighborhood.  PBSO is walking, biking and driving around in plain clothes looking for suspicious activity.  No statistics will be available until after the detail has completed.

Race for Mayor
•    The registration period for the upcoming mayoral election, November 3rd, 2009, has closed and the following have officially registered: William Coakley, Javier Del Sol, Laurence McNamara, John Jorden, Loretta Sharpe and Rene Varela.

•    Rene Varela and Javier Del Sol both spoke with the association giving us an opportunity for further insight to their campaigns and character.

•    The TRNA welcomes all mayoral candidates to join our meetings and will allot five minutes for each to speak if they desire.

•    Amy Saleeby from One Good Deed Marketing & Events spoke with the association.  She is looking for volunteers to assist in the Halloween production she is putting on in our downtown area this year.  Amy is looking for people to assist with building giant puppets for the parade on Friday October 30th, people to dress up and be in the parade, small business owners who would like to participate in "Freaky Friday" events and much more.

•    If you would like to volunteer your time or would like to learn more about the events happening next month, please contact Amy at 561.951.4915 or
