    Monday's pit bull attack in the 500 block of Harold St. Please read the events that happened prior to this. The prior weekend the dogs tried to get a chihuahua who was on a leash, my husband was walking our Shepherd and they jumped the fence to go after my dog. They were constantly jumping the fence. They even went into our neighbors house where children were present. The clincher for us was when they jumped the fence after a woman who was riding her bike and had her little dog. That was enough, my husband dashed out to help her and called the police. The police said to contact the animal shelter if they got out again. Three more time they jumped the fence and animal shelter was called each time. When they attacked the man on the bike Monday, I called the police and the animal shelter.The man was taken to the hospital by ambulance in obvious pain from a huge bite on the side and small bite on his hand.What is wrong with this picture? Why didn't animal control respond to the calls prior ?

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?
