Welcome to Polk County, FL.
My name is Lisa Slaski, and I am your new host. I live in Florida, but am unable to do personal research. I will be adding information and resources as I find it. Please feel free to send in any information you might have that you would like to share with others, including good links or other ideas for the site. Many of the links on the left will be "filled out" in time, but for now are under construction and some may appear to be "dead". If you are interested in helping out, please let me know!
