    Quite the conspiracy theory there. Have you ever attended a 7AM shirtsleeve?They happen every week, and are purely informational. No decisions are ever made.There are occasional special meetings held, which are rare and only when the council can't wait two more weeks for another normal, bi-monthly meeting.And in any event, they are all public, records are kept and made public, and I believe they're all made available live (and recorded) on the city's website.I'd much rather have that, than a council that is held up for two weeks and can't make a decision.

    Lodi must be a real backward town when it holds their city council meetings at 7AM. I guess they know there will be no citizenry present so they can discuss issues and pass ordinances as they fancy that should be presented at evening meetings that all Lodi voters can attend and make public comments for the records. I assume it was your own city council that passed this 7AM meeting ordinance? Why another meeting on Wednesday at 7PM? Are these 7AM meeting issues and agendas so important and secretive that they can't be addressed on Wednesday at 7PM when most Lodians are home from work and have had dinner? Since when is 7AM considered for important agendas and issues that should be scheduled for evening meetings? Many issues at the 7PM meetings are just formalities that should be handled at the AM meetings and those meetings should be held at 10AM rather than 7AM. If they're worried about being late for work, etc., they shouldn't have run for council.

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?
