Nobody was injured Wednesday evening when a gang-related fight turned into a shooting and rounds struck a home, Lodi police said.

The incident began as a fight around 6:15 p.m. in the 1400 block of South School Street, just south of Kettleman Lane, Sgt. Lance Hayden said.

As one man began to get in the driver's seat of a green Chevrolet Tahoe, he fired about five or six rounds from a medium-caliber revolver, Hayden said.

The intended victims, who were standing in the street, were not hit. At least two rounds passed them and struck a home not related to the incident, one round striking the house just below the living room window and the other round hitting a covered patio. Nobody was home at the time.

Several male suspects, believed to be gang members, fled in the vehicle, which was last seen heading east on Kettleman Lane. There were no immediate arrests.

Coastal Cleanup Day to be held at Lodi Lake

The city of Lodi is looking for volunteers for California Coastal Cleanup Day at Lodi Lake Park. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. on Saturday at the Lodi Lake Park Discovery Center and help pick up garbage from around the lake.

Volunteers cleaned up 1,333 pounds of garbage from the lake at last year's event.

Leaders are also sought for this year's cleanup. Leaders direct 10- to 12-person teams in a section of the park.

Garbage is sorted and tallied, with a list submitted to The Ocean Conservancy's international database to help researchers identify the sources of marine pollution.

There is also a statewide contest for the most unusual item found. A Lodi student won the $100 contest prize several years ago for finding an unscratched lottery ticket.

All volunteers must sign release liability forms. Parental permission forms must be turned in for volunteers under age 18. Forms are available on the city's Web site, http://www.lodi.gov, and at the Lodi Public Library, as well as at the park on the day of the cleanup.

Workers are advised to dress appropriately with closed-toe shoes, gloves, hats and sunblock. The city of Lodi and its sponsors will provide gloves, bags, grapplers and refreshments.

For more information, contact Kathy Grant at 339-8722 or Frank Beeler at 333-6800, ext. 2443.

Regional water board will meet Friday

The Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board will meet Friday to consider Lodi's wastewater treatment plant permit.

The proposed permit includes new effluent limitations on ammonia, nitrate and other materials. The board has recognized that the city might not be able to immediately comply with the new regulations, so the proposed permit gives the city a time schedule by which to comply.

The board will also consider the comments submitted to the proposed permit. Lodi submitted comments as well as the California Sport Fishing Protection Alliance, the Central Valley Clean Water Association and local farmer Ken Hajek.

Lodi needs the permit to continue discharging wastewater into the Delta and on surrounding farmland.

The board meets at 8:30 a.m. Friday in Clovis.

Stockton city council: Dogs must have chips

STOCKTON - Dogs in the city will have to be embedded with microchips and cats will have to be licensed starting next month, following a unanimous ruling by city council members.

The measure, passed Tuesday, intends to cut down the number of animals being euthanized at the city pound, officials said. Stockton's Lincoln Street shelter killed more than 9,000 stray animals last year.

Veterinarians said a microchip about the size of a grain of rice can be implanted in the skin for less than $45, and can include the pet owner's contact information. Under the measure, cats either must have a microchip or a collar.

The ordinance, which goes into effect on Oct. 11, is a "progressive approach" to animal control that includes "an element of humanity," said Councilman Clem Lee.

    Do you hear the rumblings LPD? You've got a problem here and it's not going away. Take care of business or this will take over Lodi and you will have nothing else to do but deal with these crimes on a daily basis.

    I guess there were other more important things to print on the front page that day than a shooting and gang activity in Lodi.

    First Lodi needs to take care of their skate park safety gear issues and then they will get to the gang and shooting crimes. Just wait your turn. We've got priorities here.

    These kids that were shot at are normal kids, just because they are hispanic they are being labeled as "gang bangers". An innocent familes house had a bullet through their wall, what's next a child? on this block there are at least 18 plus children that ride there bikes and play ball outside. This community needs to do more about Lodi's gang problem. Put more officers on these streets. I guarantee this would not happen on any city officials street. I don't want the next shots to lead to the death of an innocent child.

    I agree that this shouldn't be tucked away in the regional round up and should instead be displayed on the front page. This is real, serious news. But since it isn't something to do with a wine festival or event...

    And I thought the LPD leadership under ex-chief Hansen was terrible. His successor never makes it away from that air-conditioned ofiice, TV and computer, does he? When? Is he afraid to speak? His officers do one helluva job, but too many desk jobs and supervisory. Where's that gang task force and enforcement of ILLEGALS that don't even belong in Lodi. You know who they are and where they reside, what's the problem?

    Why are stories like this tucked away in the roundup section? Shouldn't this be front page news?

    This was on the TV and radio. We thought we better go inside so we won't get shot. The gangs at it again (we know who is in the gangs but its not PC to talk about it. The Stockton Record gave details on the getaway vehicle. The LNS won't because it might upset the GOB and the realtors. If you see a late model green Chevy Tahoe (Stockton Record), call the Highway Patrol, they won't be afraid to track them down. They don't write elbow pad tickets---and they have real guns.

    Don't worry about those gunshots or the eastside, the pickins' are easier at the skatepark writing tickets for no equipment to the kids. We don't want you, CITY COUNCIL and the "KING" TO LOSE YOUR BLIGHTED DESIGNATION FOR THAT AREA TO INTERFERE WITH YOUR REDEVELOPMENT, WOULD WE?t&c

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
