Vehicle permit enforcement is wrong

Lt. Chet Somera wrote on behalf of the Chief of Police the following: "So that you and/or your guests may pass through the barricades, I have enclosed permit applications.

These applications must be completed, one per vehicle, and returned to me on or before 5 p.m. Friday, June 22. You will only be allowed to have as many permits as the number of vehicles that can legally park on your driveway. You will not be allowed to park on the streets within the 'road closed' areas. The permit is vehicle specific and must be clearly visible on the dashboard of each vehicle. These vehicles may come and go freely until 3 p.m. however, at 3 p.m., no private vehicles will be allowed entry whether or not it has a permit. These vehicles then must stay on your property until 11 p.m. or (until) released by Supervisor Jeanie Biskup, Sergeant Steve Carillo, or me."

What is being done is wrong. For us to just take it is wrong. This is sheer bullyism, and contrary to "popular" belief, all measures should be taken to stop it, not just step aside and say, "It's not worth it." This must be stopped! Just get rid of the fireworks and the problems associated with them.

I don't have a right to fireworks on the Fourth of July, but I surely have a right to come and go as I please!

So, now there is a "double standard", one for public figures and one for the average citizen? More liberal hogwash.

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?
