Note to Readers and Welcome Back, Chuck

Posting to lkldnow.com and our social media pages will be lighter than normal for the next week and a half. I’m on my way to visit family far away and will have sporadic Internet access. But good news: We have a guest curator. Chuck Welch, who founded LakelandLocal.com as a news site nearly 10 years ago, will be monitoring news about Lakeland and posting links to worthwhile stories. He may also do a few Facebook or Twitter updates. (For the record, Chuck is still in Wisconsin; the curation can be done from afar.) And I just might sneak in and post a story or two that I’m working on. Thanks, Chuck.
