Note to Readers: We’re Slowing Down During the Holidays

I’m taking a break for a few weeks, but news curation will continue on LkldNow.com. Chuck Welch, who founded LakelandLocal.com and reported local news there for several years, will post Lakeland news links on LkldNow.com in my absence. Please continue visiting because a minute a day at LkldNow.com makes you smarter about Lakeland. Have a happy holiday. See you in January.
