After a long blogging absense, I'm coming back with one of the top question floating around the newsroom: What do you want to see in Reynolds Ranch?

Developer Dale Gillespie has announced that" target="_blank">Costco," target="_blank">Home Depot and" target="_blank">Best Buy are planning to come to the large shopping center at Highway 99 and Harney Lane.

Personally, I would love to see a" target="_blank">Steak n' Shake or Imo's, but since those chains are not on the West Coast, I had to modify my answer. I'm voting for Trader Joe's or Moe's Southwest Grill.

Here are the answers from the rest of the newsroom:

"Fat Burger. The closest one is at Thunder Valley about an hour away." — Fernando Gallo, our cops reporter.

"A new huge bookstore like a Borders or Barnes and Noble. I also would like a El Pollo Loco." — Rich Hanner, our editor.

"Dave and Busters. It has an arcade and booze. What's not to love?" — Jordan Guinn, business reporter.

"I want a book store that sells movies and magazines and has big chairs in a cafe where I can sleep at lunchtime. Like good magazines, not Martha Stewart." — Lauren Nelson, our Lodi Living Editor. 

"One that comes to mind is Whole Foods." — Ross Farrow, our county reporter.

"My restaurant would be Spaghetti Factory and my store is Bed, Bath and Beyond." — Pam Bauserman, our Panorama editor.

"A real home good store like a Crate and Barrel or Williams-Sonoma. I wouldn't buy anything in it, but I would definitely window shopping." — Jennifer Howell, photographer

"A Borders and a Panda Express." — Dan Evans, chief photographer.

"I want a new art store that's not all covered in dust." — Marc Lutz in advertising.

I'm going to be spending some time on the blog over the next couple weeks to get back into a routine, so make sure you check back. I'm hoping to start some new weekly features to encourage myself to post more frequently.
