The civic-minded among Lodi's residents are invited to a town hall meeting on Thursday to learn more about how local government works.

Mayor Alan Nakanishi put together the first of three town hall meetings this year to offer a localized civics lesson.

City officials will speak on budgets, rate comparisons, and how city departments are structured. There will also be time for questions to members of the Lodi City Council, City Manager Rad Bartlam and heads of city departments.

"In the past two years, people have made a lot of incorrect statements, and it's hard for us to dispute that after the fact. There have been a lot of false statements about the city, what we do and what power we have," said Nakanishi. His hope is that the meeting will respond to many of these questions.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in Carnegie Forum, at 305 W. Pine St.

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?
