Lauren Rogan, 7, wandered along the edge of Lodi Lake, clipboard, notebook and pencil in hand. She squinted as she studied the squawking geese to her left, the oak trees to her right and the hundreds of leaves she crunched under her feet.

Rogan, her twin sister Claire Rogan, and four other girls from Lodi, Stockton and Elk Grove gathered Saturday morning with renowned nature artist Rene Reyes to trek through the Lodi Lake Nature Area to examine and sketch everything from blackberry briars to red-chested hawks.

    If it's a cesspool, then do something about it rather than crying about how it used to be. It's great that a class like this is being held for the community. Our kids are already spending too much time on the computer and other gadgets that they are losing touch with the outdoors. Sure Lodi Lake is not as clean as it probably was. But look beyond that. There is a lovely trail that holds several species of birds and several native plants. There is Mokulumne River right next door which is a great canoeing area. I am sorry, Robert Jacobs, that Lodi Lake is not as clean as you say it used to be....I do not think these children in the drawing class were attending a swimming class. I hope there will be more events like this for Lodi and for Lodi's kids. To me, and I am sure for a lot of locals, Lodi Lake is not a cesspool. It is a place for the community to come together.

    Are you kidding me with this? That lake is a cesspool... When we were kids that was nice lake, but I wouldn't get near it now, and anyone who does, does so at their peril!
