Don't send birthday presents: Here's a somewhat unusual holiday story: Katie Brockman, who turned 11 on Saturday, told her mother she doesn't want any birthday presents this year. Instead, anyone who is so inclined may contribute items such as non-perishable food, shoes, blankets and clothing to First United Methodist Church, 200 W. Oak St., Lodi. The church will then distribute the items to low-income Lodi residents.

Window display spreads Christmas cheer: At Reo's Appliance Center on 7 W. Oak St., a window display reading "Happy Birthday, Jesus" is attracting people into the shop to remark about how much they enjoy seeing it.
