Richard Jones is retiring early as president of the Lodi Boys and Girls Club and heading home to Toledo, Ohio, this summer. He just completed a term on the Lodi Unified School District board and did not seek re-election.

"The youths of Lodi are losing a passionate ally," teachers' union president Jeff Johnston said Tuesday upon hearing the news. "While I am sorry to see him leave, I certainly wish him the best in his much-deserved retirement."

    Darrell, 1456 posts & 1 letter to the editor, I can feel that union hatred or jealousy emanating from you once again. Thank you, Richard Jones, for you great service to the Boys & Girls club and LUSD. You will surely be missed on the east side.

    All I can say is.... what? This from the union. I think an apology and retraction from the union is more appropriate.
