University of the Pacific receives timely news for veterans

University of the Pacific was notified Friday that it was accepted as a qualified institution under the United State Department of Veteran Affairs' "Yellow Ribbon Program." That program allows veterans to attend Pacific and get a significant portion of their expenses and tuition covered by the VA and Pacific.

Qualified veterans may begin applying for benefits for the fall semester. Specific program details will be announced in the coming weeks.

Just in time for Memorial Day weekend, the university was notified by the Veterans Department that its application for the Yellow Ribbon Program was approved this week. The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.

This isn't the only veterans-related program started at Pacific in the past year. Last year, a student-organized veterans group was established at Pacific and has held several on-campus meetings including a Veterans Day observance in the fall.

    Real smart move DLBP. Close businesses on a Sunday when out-of-towners and locals might actually be downtown. When are these people going to start understanding retail business?

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?
