    I agree that doing more of a focus on local business would have been a really nice touch on this piece. HOWEVER ... if you're so concerned that the "internet is killing the local paper" - why not BUY the paper rather than read it online for FREE? (and then make rude comments directed towards the employees) Way to help butter their bread.

    Some of these people do not understand who butters their bread. The internet is killing the local paper where they work, but they suggest people do their shopping on-line. Local stores through advertising pay their salaries!

    Note from editor Rich Hanner: Valuable comment. The package includes numerous local merchants, but in retrospect, I do wish we had made a more focused effort to highlight local stores. There are specialty items (such as Kindle) that can't be had in Lodi. But there are some that probably could be purchased here and we'll keep this in mind with future shopping stories.Thank you for your feedback.
