Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh and girlfriend Kathryn Rogers have promised the town $100,000 toward the cost of new holiday decorations.
The gift is part of $350,000 in private donations pledged by a few town residents, Town Council President David Rosow said at Tuesday's council meeting.
Limbaugh wanted to help bring "brightness and cheer" to a town he dearly loves, said Rosow, who is a friend of Limbaugh's.
Rosow solicited the donations to cover the entire cost of the new lights and garlands, and installation of wiring to support them.
"No one I called said 'no,' " Rosow said. "Everyone I spoke to said, 'This is great.' "
Rosow has said he couldn't justify spending more than $300,000 to celebrate the holidays in a year when the council expected town employees to do without raises, and trimmed their health benefits.
Rosow himself tossed in $25,000, which in turn prompted Councilman Robert Wildrick on Tuesday to pledge another $25,000.
The plan calls for annual leasing of LED lights to wrap around palms, and purchase of garland for light poles on County Road, Worth Avenue, Royal Palm Way and Royal Poinciana Way.
What? They’re not turning down his donation because he’s conservative?
Driving the libs crazy!!! LOL!
And you think to yourself, "I helped make this happen." What a boost.
Rush should stipulate his $$$$ go toward CHRISTMAS decorations only.
Rush only wants his money to go toward buying white lights.
^^^^^^^It’s a joke.
“girlfriend Kathryn Rogers” ????!!!!
What a wonderful thing to do! Merry Christmas, Rush!
“HOLIDAY decorations? Which holiday are they referring to?”
The Winter Solstice undoubtedly.
I hope Rush is making it clear, long and loudly, that they are Christmas decorations,
The Palm Beach Daily News obviously has a problem with Christmas, and undoubtedly Christians as well.
For the usual reasons.
I just did a little research and this Kathryn Rogers is some 31 year old hottie. IMO, it’s kind of creepy to see Rush (58 yo) dating somebody this young. She’s young enough to be his daughter!
Anybody have a picture of Rush’s girlfriend?
Future ex wife number what? four?
I love Rush, but man the dude has had awful luck with women in his life.
Let's be frank: at least half the population of Palm Beach is Jewish. Hannukkah is the festival of lights. I see nothing wrong with the money going to a "holiday" celebration considering the demographics of the area.
But, but...what about the 18 million Americans who go to bed hungry each night?
Wait until Sharpton and Jackson hear this...!
I didn't even know he had a girlfriend.She is just about young enough to be his daughter.And I'm inclined to agree...it's rather disturbing.Apart from the sleep number bed what do they *talk* about?
I think he goes for all of the wrong “qualities” in women. He should have married me years ago.
When it happens once it might qualify as "bad luck".Three times....I think it's something else.
That may well have been true *before* Bernie Madoff.But now.....not so sure.Seriously...check out the database on his victims.It gives addresses.
Come on Rush, do you really have to date a young lady who could be your daughter? Typical white rich male..
And yes, I am a Rush fan but come on.... really?
Hey,whaddya talking about? You're just after a Green Card,aren't you! Only kidding!
But seriously...I think you're right.Good character,sanity and a good intellect are more important than looks.Not that good looks *hurt* the situation. ;-)
“IMO, its kind of creepy to see Rush (58 yo) dating somebody this young. Shes young enough to be his daughter!”
Men have beer goggles, women have money goggles. Besides, she could do much worse then Limbaugh. He’s not the Hunchback of Notre Dame! I don’t think she is embarrassed to be seen in public with him.
“Money makes the world go around, the world go around”
I understand what you're saying. It's still creepy. I mean, 27 years difference? I'm sorry, that's really stretching it.
They seem to have enjoyed each other's company for quite a while now. Good for them.
If Rush would quit w/ the Blonde “Bimbo” types and search out Laura Ingram, Michelle Malin or Anne Coulter type then he would have a lifetime match.

Well, the green card is a bonus, for sure! Heck, do you even NEED one any more? Can’t I just be illegal, like a third of the population? Guess not....I would be coming across the northern border.
You are ready to live in Oregon. The headline here would be:
"Plutocrats force vile religious beliefs on unsuspecting proletariat!!
How much is too much? 5? 10? 25?
I misses something along the way. What happened to Rush’s former wife, Marta? She seemed a sweet person and good counterpoint to Rush.
I just wrote Rush an email telling him how sad I was that he has to go with the hot young babe way of thinking and living. It really does change his credibility.
Many many many of us have been left by rich white husbands for younger, firmer blondes. It does get old!
(To properly celebrate Kwwaaanzaaaa all you need is a battery, jumper cables, some duct tape and a sharp knife.)
I was thinking more along the lines of the FReepathons....I've always wondered if it were Rush (we know he or Snerdley FReep like hell during his show) who was the benefactor a few years ago that sopped up the quarterly fundraiser after just a couple of days.
I’m not gonna answer your questions but I will say that 27 is obviously too much.
Rush didn't leave his wife for her.
You are projecting your own biases into his life.
Seems you should to keep them to yourself.
Big deal. Rush likes younger woman....so what! They’re all over 21 and know exactly what they’re doing. You go Rush and forget getting married again!
