The Lodi-Galt area could endure record-breaking temperatures today and Wednesday as a massive heat wave descends on the Central Valley.

And some of the smoke that made people cough and made buildings look yellowish-brown two weeks ago will return to the Valley.

    Glad I don't have to ride those smelly, hot Grapeline buses the city has pawned off to MV Transportation and forces both riders and passengers to put up with those kinds of conditions. C, mon union drivers, refuse to drive these vehicles without air conditioning and stand up for yourselves, and mainly, your passengers who depend on you.

    The Bus drivers now have a UNION! Does the Union have any power at all? Are they here now to collect UNION DUES from driver's paycheck? Safety is non-Negotiable! Large lodi city buses that drive with ALL the windows open, are "Blast Furnaces" for the drivers passengers, Seniors, those pregnant or with children, the disabled, and those on medication! We Need BUSES that can run their A/C without the engine shutting down! Do people have to die before replacement "Leased Buses" can be approved by the city council! DRIVERS, Call CHP Mike Campoy 948-7255 press ext 211 and leave message!

    It shouldn't beexpensive for the to "Lease at least SEVERAL buses that can run their Air conditioning in the summer months without BREAKING DOWN. Does LNS reporters have the "Guts" to blow this "Defective safety situation" wide open and help the passengers get more reliable buses? Call CHP Officer Mike Campoy, CHP Safety Inspector 948-7255 press ext. 211 when prompted to leave a message about riding in a "BLAST FURNACE in the big buses! It's easy to feel cold air at 10am when parked. CHP, please do surprise safety checks on Bus Routes #2,4 #5 after 2PM!

    It is a Very Dangerous situation for the Bus drivers, passengers, (Esp. Seniors,children and those on medication) and any vehicle near the bus should the bus driver pass out from heat exhaustion. To express your concerns to the California Highway Patrol Inspection Unit please call 948-7255 Press exy #211 when prompted! Obviously if ALL the windows on a city bus are wide open it is PROOF their air conditioning unit is OFF! It's been that way for the last 4 years each summer! I dare the city council to ride the big buses after 2pm this week!

    Accuweather has revised the temp today to 110 degrees which in my book, means, that tomorrow will be even hotter. Ugh!http://www.accuweather.com/us/ca/lodi/95240/city-weather-forecast.asp?partner=accuweather&u=1&traveler=0
