The National Weather Service is predicting today's high will hit 111 degrees, which would break the record of 107 degrees set in 1961.

    think it's hot in Lodi?? Think about our soldiers serving in Afgahnistan and Iraq 110-130 degrees every day of the summer and no relief at night. or our firefighters dealing with scorching temps as they try to keep CA from burning. do we really have that much to complain about?

    Hot Work?? Allot has been said about the young Mexican girl that died clipping vines in a vineyard. Hot? Maybe. Now lets talk about some serious hot work, a group of 5 workers from American Roofing striped a shingle roof, and had it plywooded the same day. Not allot of shade on a roof. These men knew what they were doing, the young girl didn`t and should have never been allowed to be in the fields in the first place, since she was to young. Now the farm labor contractor is in "hot" water.

    To the city crews paving hot asphalt on my street today, Thanks for the great work even in the heat and smoke. You guys do great work. Try to cool down this evening.

    The best suggestion of all, stay inside, A / C on and drink beer.

    My goodness, who knew it would get hot in Lodi in July. I am just shocked. I had no idea I should drink fluids and stay out of the sun when it gets so hot. What a public service the New Sentinel is doing letting us know these tips. /sarcasm offSeriously, the heat in July is normal in the central valley, it is not news. Yes the smoke in the air is, but again this is not the first time this has happened. If we didn't not have daylight savings time, we could stay in our offices during the hottest part of the day, but instead we are driving home and turning on our air-conditioners during this time period.

    Passenger's are headed for Safeway, Wal-Mart or Food 4 Less, Bus #2,#4 and #1 will All get you to the same place! Take a bus that has Cool air when you BOARD the bus! Don't suffer in SILENCE if the bus A/C is shut off because the Engine will shut down if they turn the A/C on! If the bus isn't running their A/C ask the driver to turn it on! Until the Large buses whose A/C work properly under California Law, We passengers will suffer! Call CHP Mike Campoy 948-7255 Ext. 211 if you have questions/concerns.

    To all Lodi bus passengers waiting to board a city bus at the downtown station, I offer this advice: GO INSIDE THE BUS STATION, and wait for your bus to arrive instead of standing outside waiting for the bus to arrive! Carry a sports water bottle, have frozen with juice or water from your freezer so you have cold fluids to keep you cool! Use sun blocker! Most important, if one bus has all the windows open their AIR CONDITION DOESN'T WORK! Please ride a bus that DOES have A/C if it will take you to the same place!
