If you live, work or own property in Lodi, the city's attempt to win money from insurance companies to pay for cleaning up contamination affects you.

Utility rate increases, property values - even the city's financial reputation - are on the line here.

Yet this critical issue, clouded by legal and technical jargon, is difficult to explain - and to grasp.

In today's stories, we attempt to tell how this legal siege began, how it may end, and why it is important to all Lodians.

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?
