A 30-acre commercial development in south Lodi that stalled during the economic downturn is moving forward.

According to the plans, the new development will include five offices and commercial retail space at the southwest corner of Harney Lane and West Lane.

    Bob Bechill posted at 4:36 pm...Give Bob a break. He apologized already. Now the real issue is that we truly do need a Trader Joe's in Lodi. I'm all for that!

    I guess that’s the real issue for you Bob... but to me, you simply are behaving like an ostrich that avoids issues rather than dealing with them… Apologizing for offending anyone does not solve the problem. It was a gentlemanly thing to do, but we still have a mayor that thinks women need to be placated to solve problems… He is the mayor and has power over women’s lives, and you think the real issue is … we need a Traders Joes… My response is… give me a break…

    You are the Mayor now. Think before you speak.
    No more bully----no more "someone's got her undies in a bunch" -- no more disrespect --please.
    Thank you Mrs. Johnson for trying to get your man--- our mayor --on track.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Schlotzsky's, we need a Schlotzsky's. BEST Pastrami sandwich ever. And there isn't one for a few hundred miles from here. I'm salivating just thinking about them.

    When I go to the grocery store with my wife, I have to tell her where everything is located. Everyone there knows me by my first name, and wonders who the lady is who's with me.

    Bob stated...To all those "housewives" I may have offended, I apologize...As MY wife told me after she read the paper this am the comment was inappropriate...

    Bob, I’m afraid you are digging a deeper hole than prior... When someone says something and offends, then apologizes, that is a good thing… however, several things happened here that may be a problem for your political future.

    That your wife had to tell you if it was inappropriate at your age and political position is amazing. That you have political power in your vote that directly affects the lives of women, and those who love them, is probably not a good thing since you harbor that attitude… internal attitudes and dispositions are not eliminated by apologizing. If I were your political opponent, I would address and communicate with as many woman’s groups as possible and identify ordinances passed that you voted for that might effect them. Nothing personal… I’m just surprised and disappointed as I advocated voting for you prior to this.

    Josh stated… Who is "Citizens for Open Government… good question … went to secretary of state web site and only one listing in California…. Strange they would be concerned about this…
    Entity Number Date Filed Status Entity Name Agent for Service of Process
    I think this is out of LosAngeles... anyone know more?
    Citizens for Open Government… "(Citizens for Open Government) is concerned that the SouthHutchins Annexation Project ... is yet another significantincursion into the undeveloped land between the city and Stockton,"the letter states.

    Bob, you better hope the Lodi NOW group does not start a recall petition because I will sign it. You are so out of touch with the majority of Lodians.

    And, PLEASE, all of you TRADER JOE's people.... they are NOT coming to Lodi. Stop with all of the whining. Besides, I'd much rather have a Whole Foods any day of the week, but Lodi doesnt come close to meeting their income & education demographics either.

    Who is "Citizens for Open Government"? Is it a handful of people who continue to hide behind their attorney? As long as we're demanding "open government" how about letting us know who makes up this organization. And when will the other secret organization come forth? Certainly Lodi First should be involved in this matter as well.

    Bob Johnson is what we call a male chauvinist pig in my generation. Just look at the council meeting archives and watch his hateful dialogue oftentimes with Ms. Hitchcock and Ms. Mounce. The developer, realtor, builder 3 amigos, Hansen, Johnson and Katzakian will assure us that Harney Lane will become a gigantic strip mall from this new project at Harney and West Lane to the present new super highway 99 strip mall known as Reynolds Ranch. That's the last nail in the coffin for the "greenbelt". Look out Lodi, here comes Stockton!

    Johnson has always been a class A (starts with "a," ends with "e," and has 7 letters). Didn't we get rid of him way back when and then he suddenly ran for Council again in 2004?

    Why would "housewives" want a Trader Joes? With just a restaurant they could make their husbands take them out every night and never have to go grocery shopping.

    To placate the housewives of the community, rather than a restaurant, let's have a restaurant and a Trader Joe's," Johnson said.

    Did Mr Johnson actual state “to placate housewives"... if I were a female voter, I would have a problem voting for a man that was that derogatory to the female sex...and as a husband of a special lady, that is now retired, is a housewife, I would have a problem voting for him as well. Where there is smoke there is fire… this comment was the smoke.
