In between gliding up and down ramps on his scooter and trying new tricks, Lodi High School freshman Cody Adams tells one of his friends who missed the trash can with his snack wrapper to go pick up his litter at the Kofu Park Skate Park.

On Thursday afternoon, Adams and about 20 other BMX and scooter riders and skateboarders felt their wheels hit the wooden ramps for the first time in 49 days.

    Mr Baumbach, please state your reasoning for your comment, "big mistake". Since you live in the big city of Acampo, why should you again have such a negative attitude toward the skate park? Nearly every city has one, why shouldn't Lodi? Please keep your negativity in Acampo. When you are a Lodi taxpayer, then you may come to the meetings and express your feelings toward those youths that strive to enjoy and obey the rules to keep their skate park open for all to enjoy. Lighten up, Mr. Baumbach. Or are you just trying to make the sprint to the 10,000 blog mark?

    Thanks to everyone who supported the opening of the skatepark. Thank Mr. Hood for working with the community on getting the park open again. About 30 to 40 kids showed up to ride their scooters, skateboards and bikes. If you want to see what everything is about, please stop by and watch the kids. It takes a lot of skill to jump a bike, skateboard or scooter.

    Thank you, Mr. Hood, for your decision to open the skate park for the youths. I only hope they have enough respect to do their part to assure that it remains that way.
