After the final roaring crash of the second World Trade tower on Sept. 11, 2001, there was a deafening silence. All that could be heard after that was the wailing of sirens as police, fire, and medical personnel went about their duties towards both the living and the dead.

Lodi police cars will sound their sirens after a moment of silence during the ecumenical commemoration service honoring that moment, at noon on Tuesday, 9/11, at the American Legion Hall, 320 N. Washington St.

The public is invited to participate in the hour-long program, which will include prayers from pastoral and other representatives of several Lodi churches, as well as a color guard of Lodi police and American Legion members, the Pledge of Allegiance and singing of the national anthem, a bugler playing Taps, and a bagpiper performing "Amazing Grace" after the moment of silence.

Participating churches include St. John's Episcopal, Grace Presbyterian, the Lodi Buddhist Church, Big Valley Bible, St. Paul Lutheran, St. Anne's Catholic, the Lodi Sikh Temple, Congregation Keter Ysrael, and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Light refreshments will be provided by the ladies of the Sikh temple and members of the Legion.

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?
