The City of Lake Worth website has a great deal of information about the upcoming ballot question regarding issuing a bond to repair roads. Go to http://www.lakeworth.org/topics/2016/bond/ . Here you will see the exact language of the ballot question–NOTE it is the only question on the BACK of the ballot. There is a tax calculator to help you estimate how much the bond would increases taxes on your property if you are a property owner. There are detailed maps showing which streets are within the plan as well as listing of streets within each district. There’s lots of information about the condition of the roads and how they have been evaluated and ranked.
The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation, which assists high-achieving low-income students reach their full potential through education, is inviting applications for its College Scholarship Program, the largest undergraduate scholarship in the country.

Up to forty spaces are available to high-achieving high school seniors with financial need who seek to attend the best four-year colleges and universities in the nation. In addition to financial support, the program offers an on-staff adviser to help students transition to college and maximize their campus experience, a network of scholars, and opportunities students might not otherwise have access to, including funding for internships, study abroad, and graduate study.
