This is from a city (Tampa) that couldn't manage to tell the difference between the "CITY" of Lakeland and the Lakeland/Winter Haven MSA and it's reflected in the data presented.

Pathetic! It must be a slow news cycle.

Of course Florida is stupid. One need look no further than the amount of young smokers. It must be over 50%. Originally from LI, it is much rarer to see young smokers. I do not mean to offend but I have to tell it like it is. Floridians can not even get the basics like smoking is detrimental to your health and costs unnecessary money.

Considering some of the rude comments made by Lakeland residents I'm not surprised. Name calling and cursing make up most of the comments I've received; reason is not a consideration. Congratulations, Lakeland! You've finaly made a list!!

LMAO! It's funny how a Tampa site fashioned the title of the piece after Lakeland when Tampa made that same list. Intersting.

Grades were released. Polk had one of the better grades in the region. Where was Hillsborough?
