LAKELAND ATTRACTING REPUTATION FAVOURABLE TO THE HOMELESS
Today's main front page "above the fold" story in the Lakeland Ledger is by Rick Rousos regarding the status of the local homeless community, and how Lakeland has received a reputation among homeless people throughout the region as a city filled with generous people and churches more tolerant of them and ready to help. Not the type of positive reputation that some in the community may want to hear of...
He also has several "sidebar" feature stories focusing on individuals among the local homeless community. Among them are a man who has chosen the homeless lifestyle as his own, a woman who credits her newfound religious faith for helping her into a new direction, a young man who sees his day labour job as a way out of the abyss of drugs, and a big man who says the outdoor life suits him just fine.
A great piece of work deserving of your review.
