Players from all sorts of interest groups will participate in a public forum about the proposed peripheral canal on March 3, a Saturday, at Stockton Civic Auditorium.

Called “A Primer on Water and the Delta,” the forum will cover how the canal would affect residential, business and agricultural operations in the Delta.

Presentations will be made by Jerry Meral, deputy secretary for the California Natural Resources Agency; James Peltier of the Westlands Water District in the southern San Joaquin Valley; Stockton Mayor Ann Johnston; water attorney John Herrick; Jeff Michael, director of University of the Pacific’s Business Forecasting Center; and Barbara Barrigan-Parilla, executive director of Restore the Delta.

Questions will be taken after each presentation.

The forum will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the auditorium, 525 N. Center St.

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?
