    Article stated...A retired minister who participated in a civil rights march in Montgomery, Ala., in 1965 will be the guest speaker at Monday's Celebration of Unity in Lodi.

    Then Ross Farrow stated...When only the day of the week appears in a story, it means the next one coming up

    Normally, when the following Monday is the day in which someone wants to reference... the writer types “next Monday”. Since I am not familiar with how the church celebrates anything and since civil rights celebrations happen frequently... and since talks about Martin Luther King happen often... I was simply trying to clarify. I was considering going and wanted to make sure of the exact date.
    For you Ross, to state “ If it was for a year other than 2012, this article would likely not have been published” is condescending and childish.

    When only the day of the week appears in a story, it means the next one coming up -- in this case, the Monday immediately following the day the story is posted. If it was for a year other than 2012, this article would likely not have been published. It's way too early to publicize an event taking place in years after 2012. Ms. Bobin is correct. The event is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 16, 2012.

    ms bobin... clearly you think it appropriate to assume things instead of verify with certainty. My request was to verify... your post is as normal... insulting.

    "Emceed by Lodi attorney and active Breakthrough Project member Randy Rosá, Monday's Martin Luther King Day celebration"

    For those who are unaware - Monday, January 16th is a federal holiday officially known to the outside world as "Martin Luther King, Jr. Day."

    Not surprisingly - a holiday usually not observed in Lodi - and judging by Mr. Baumbach's response, relatively unknown here also.

    The event will begin at noon in the First United Methodist Church Fellowship Room, 200 W. Oak St. at Church Street, Lodi. It is free and open to the community.

    Is it possible to find out which Monday and which month the noon meeting will be held?
