As Caroline Henry and Pam Bechill were hanging art this week, they took time to stop and admire each piece.

"Look at these," Bechill said while holding a trio of small purple gourds in her hand.

    Hey Mr. Mayor! How about putting the Art Center in one of the vacant City buildings, i.e. the downtown Parking Structure, old Police building, old firehouse on Main Street, OR a room at HSS, Carnegie, or the Library? What a novel idea!

    Help us on this issue JoAnne and talk the 4 amigos into taking a loan on their aquatic center project and quit overfunding some of these non-profits that're owned and managed and who pay themselves as CEO's on our tax money by the good old boys.

    The art center (where I live now) brings in additional revenue by offering various art classes to the community, programs for children ($3-4 an hour for drop-in art classes Wednesday afternoons throughout the year), and summer art camps. The rate are reasonable, and seem to really benefit this art center.

    Well, let's see. Lodi city council gave Geweke Foundation for Arts $20,000, invested in various non-profits to the tune of $50,000 or so to bring the walldogs to paint buildings but hedges on additional monies for the Lodi Community Art Center, while granting extra funds to the Chamber and their buddy Patrick and the DLBP when it was under the wing of Easterling. Is there something wrong with this scenario? copy
