Lodi resident Timothy Miller gave Lodi City Council members an earful about noise from the sound system installed last year at the Grape Bowl at their meeting last week, telling them the noise on the weekends has caused him mental distress and he is considering suing the city over the issue.

Miller has lived directly behind the Grape Bowl on Calaveras Street for 20 years, and said at the Nov. 6 meeting that until the new sound system was installed last year as part of a new scoreboard system, he never had a problem with the noise.

    Yes, the Grape Bowl was there 20 years ago before Miller moved into the neighborhood, but the article clearly states that the sound system is relatively new. Apparently the nuisance began when the new sound system was installed.

    Quote: "Miller has lived directly behind the Grape Bowl on Calaveras Street for 20 years, and said at the Nov. 6 meeting that until the new sound system was installed last year as part of a new scoreboard system, he never had a problem with the noise."

    I went to a Tokay game there a few weeks ago and sitting in the stands I could not hear the announcers or understand the names as they were being announced. I feel bad for Mr. Miller but unfortunately for him the Grape Bowl was there when he moved in 20 years ago. Very similar to moving near an airport and then complaining about the noise of the airplanes.
