Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Stockton, announced last week that $751,000 for the San Joaquin Feasibility River Study was included in H.R. 3547.

According to McNerney, the study is essential for flood protection, ecosystem restoration, and the state’s water supply. In California, 24 million people rely on the protected water supply from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. This water supply provides irrigation to 7 million acres of agricultural land across the state.

“Delta families, farmers and small business owners rely on flood protection,” McNerney said. “Funding this study will eventually create jobs, improve our infrastructure and protect the water supply in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.”

In addition, the Port of Stockton was awarded $5,573,000 for operations and maintenance dredging. The money for maintenance dredging will help keep the channels clear, improve productivity, expand operations and create new jobs.

“The Port of Stockton is an essential component for California and our region, creating jobs and ensuring that California’s vast products are able to reach around the globe,” McNerney said.

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?
