Lodi nonprofits wanting to sell fireworks for the Fourth of July can start sending in applications to win a lottery spot.

Earlier this month, the Lodi City Council approved the sale and use of state-approved "safe and sane" fireworks in the city limits. The city will allow six stands in the city to sell the legal fireworks, which include spinners; handheld items like sparklers, cone fountains, base fountains, box or tube fountains; novelties; and smoke items.

    Darrell, spot on. I can already imagine who those "lucky" six non-profits will probably be. And I'd be very surprised to see two non-profits share in the profits. I'm anxiously awaiting those who will be the "lucky" winners. Makes me want to head for Vegas to win that "lucky lottery "drawing?
