Slight Case of the Hiccoughs at the Lake Worth Herald

For the first time in the 108 year history of the Lake Worth Herald, there will be no paper published for the week of August 13th. Publisher and editor in chief, Mark Easton is recovering nicely at home following unexpected, unwelcome but thankfully successful heart surgery last Saturday, August 8, 2020. Mark wishes to assure all the Herald’s loyal readers and advertisers that the hiatus will be brief and the Herald will be up and running as soon as possible.

    Men such as Mark don’t come along very often, He is a unique, caring, gentle man. He and Judy have always been very welcoming to me since I moved here. It’s a blessing that you were at the right place at the right time. Mark. It won’t be too long before you are up and running again. Listen to your doctors and your wife. They are making wise decisions for you and about you. I look forward to seeing you out and about again very soon. With much respect and admiration…Moe Foxcroft

    Dear Mark,
    I guess the fish had just about enough if you for a while and need the rest. Get well soon so you can put a fresh hook in the water. You never know what you might Pull up.
