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 Costco, Home Depot and Best Buy are planning to come to the large shopping center at Highway 99 and Harney Lane.

Personally, I would love to see a 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.
