Perfect Pumpkin Bread

3 ½ cups all purpose flour

3 cups sugar

1 ½ teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup buttery vegetable oil

4 large eggs at room temperature

2/3 cup water

2 cups canned pumpkin

Blend dry ingredients in bowl until well mixed. Combine oil, eggs, water and pumpkin and beat until well blended. Add dry ingredients slowly and beat well. Pour batter into greased loaf pans. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven: large loaves for 1 hour and 15 minutes and small loaves for 1 hour. Cool at least ten minutes before removing for pan and then cool on racks. Wrap in foil and keep in the refrigerator or freeze. Yield: 2 large loaves or three small.  I like to top it with chutney or clotted cream!

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
