    Apparently you CVS and Walgreens will dispose of your unused medications…for a fee. Sure would be nice if they did this for free so the police wouldn't have to.

    I agree. Prescription medications should be handled by medical professionals and not law enforcement. LPD needs to be concentrating on their own growing drug and gang problem.

    Unbelievable! We need law enforcement in order to properly dispose of our un-used medications!

    Aren't we a stupid bunch of morons!

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?
