I've just OKd two Newsy Neighbors posts that I'm very proud of.

Of course the posts are the work of the authors — Lodi Boys and Girls Club members Jose Magallon and Gino Prieto. My role was just to encourage them and help them polish their creations.

Jose wrote a letter to the editor, which should appear in tomorrow's Lodi News-Sentinel. Here's a link to Jose's critique of the Tokay High administration's handling of student celebrations.

Gino wrote a poem about competing in high jump for the Tokay High track team. He also posted a picture of himself clearing the bar. This is his link. It will be in print soon.

I hope you appreciate the thought and hard work that produced these thoughtful writings.
