A Lakeland landmark and beautiful work of Warren Milks art, the Roto-Sphere is up and running! Designed between 1961-1970, one of 17 left and only 7 in working condition, this is directly across the street outside the entrance of KRaP Art! How flippin cool is that?! #krapart #art #rotosphere #warrenmilks #lakeland #1960art #lkld #locallandmark #downtownlakeland #theothersideofthetracks #history #lovelakeland #sputnik

The rotating sphere near the corner of Main Street and Ingraham Avenue that people call Sputnik has been repaired and is spinning again. It was installed nearly 50 years ago by the owner of Jenkins Lincoln Mercury, according to a Ledger article on the midcentury neon artifact.
The survey looks at education, employment, commute time, cost of living, marriage rate, home ownership and poverty rate. (Check the too 10 list; chances are you haven’t heard of most of the places.)
The likely chief tenant for the Tudor House in Dixieland is a craft beer and wine bar whose owners have big plans, property owner Gregory Fancelli tells The Ledger. Richard Sherfey, a Lakeland native and part of the team that founded Orlando’s Redlight Redlight Beer Parlour, is saying little about his plans for the bar. He previously considered two other Lakeland bar locations: one downtown for a venue called Cob and Pen and another Dixieland site.
