LakeWalesNews.net is an online publication of the Baccus Center for Engaged Communications and Leadership (Baccus Center). Content is "crowd-sourced," contributed by volunteers and our readers from the Lake Wales, FL area.
Our goal is to be a watchdog of the public interest and a promoter of community spirit. Our online format allows for a large volume of stories, photos and videos - hometown stories that count from people who care.
Special thanks to business and community leaders who committed to be "charter sponsors" to underwrite the costs so we can provide a free, high quality local news source for the greater Lake Wales area.
