CANDIDATES: Reporter Chris Guinn compares the candidates for the at-large seat on the City Commission and gets them to answer questions.

LAND DEALS: City commissioners will be asked to rule on two land deals Monday: a request to donate parcels valued at $94k for the privately funded Bonnet Springs Park and a $1.65 million sale of 15 acres at Lakeland Linder Airport for Geico expansion. (A third, highly visible land deal on Monday’s agenda involves 10 acres north of Lake Mirror.)

MEDICAL MARIJUANA: The nine Lakeland physicians on the state’s list of doctors qualified to treat patients with medical marijuana (see the list here) work in small practices. Large employers of doctors, such as Watson Clinic and Lakeland Regional Health, have no employees on the list.
