The closest that April Anderson had been to Lodi was San Juan Capistrano and San Diego. But the Springfield, Mo., resident spent the weekend in Lodi after winning a contest sponsored by A&W Root Beer in connection with the restaurant's 90th birthday bash on Lodi Avenue.

"I hadn't heard of Lodi," Anderson said. "I've been told there is a song about Lodi."

    LOL weezer! In the video, the shock on Pete Knight's face when Howser just pushed behind the counter with a "Golly Gee, let's just make a Root Beer float," was priceless.

    The LNS forgot to mention that a good portion of the transportation was donated by Eric Schneider of Vintage Limousine Service of Lodi. That's how the winners were transported to these "wonderful" places such as the wineries and Chocoholics in Clements.They were also delivered to the the 90th birthday bash in style by Eric Schneider of Vintage Limousine Service of Lodi.

    The best part of the event is when all the car owners fired up their cars in unison. Algore should have been there. There he would have seen what America is all about. Instead, he is pushing his Global Warming scheme. What a fraud he is. Wake up America before he ruins anything else. God Bless America.
