Kindergarten roundup starts Monday

Parents of kindergarten-aged children are urged to join the "kindergarten roundup."

Registration is done for two weeks, from Feb. 5 to 16 at schools throughout the district. Children who will be 5 on or before Dec. 2 of this year may be registered. Generally, register at the elementary school closest to home.

Parents or guardians must provide the following:

• Official birth certificate

• A utility bill, rent or lease agreement or bill of sale, for address verification

• Record of required immunizations: Polio; diphtheria, pertussis/whooping cough, tetanus (DPT/DT/Td); measles, mumps, rubella (MMR); hepatitis B, varicella/chickenpox.

Incoming kindergartners must be able to sit and listen to a story, hold a pencil and crayon correctly, draw a "person," cut with scissors on a line, use the restroom and wash hands without help, and adjust well to being away from parents.

For more information or to find out which school to register at, call the Lodi Unified School District, 331-7000 or 953-8111, or go to www.lodiusd.net.

Galt looks to revitalize flea market

The Galt City Council has eliminated the $2 parking fee for its city-owned Tuesday and Wednesday flea market.

By a 3-2 vote, the council voted to drop the fee and refund money collected from parking tickets. Mayor Tim Raboy said the move was to attract shoppers to the 10-acre market.

"It is good will to get people to visit and tell their friends to visit," he said.

The council also voted 5-0 to reduce the fees for produce vendors at the Wednesday market. The Wednesday market, which had been waning in popularity, will also add new merchandise vendors, Raboy said.

Raboy said city staff was also looking at the possibility of adding an evening produce market in downtown Galt, similar to the Lodi Farmer's Market.

"We're hoping to bring people back to the market," Raboy said.

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?
