For a couple of reasons, it has been a very light week at Lakeland Local. That trend will continue through the holiday weekend.

I thought this was a good opportunity to remind readers there are ways to get Lakeland Local other than reading it here.

• Get daily updates in your email

• Get new articles as they appear in your feed reader

• Scan this site on your phone

• If you use Twitter, you can get periodic updates

• I was informed that the City fixed their filter and Lakeland Local is no longer blocked. On the off chance you work for an organization that blocks news sites, you can try reading this site at Vox.
