When Dr. Walter Reiss arrived in Lodi in 1962, the town had 13 doctors.

Now, 48 years later, he's one of more than 125 physicians in what is more commonly called a city. Over the years, he has volunteered countless hours, providing medical care for those who could not afford it.

    Sorry Layla when I read the below paragraph stating that the clinic was ran by the Salvation army for 14 years, I thought it was them that still ran it."For 14 years, the clinic had operated in the Salvation Army building on Sacramento Street. But quarters were cramped, and the Salvation Army couldn't spare any space, said Lt. Dan Williams."

    Jerome: Yeah, I wasn't happy to see that error, either. Those responsible will be flogged. (April Fools, perhaps?)wujek: It's operated by Lodi Memorial Hospital, not a church.

    Couldn't they have waited another 4 years 'till Obamacare hits the ground running, most of the issues in Obamacare don't kick in until 2014 but the important items like wealth redistribution are enacted now.

    What exactly is a "heath" clinic? C'mon LNS - find a proofreader who actually knows how to read.
