Should American flag be displayed first?

I pass by the intersection of West Lane and Armstrong most every day.

I have noticed the new Sikh church has installed a very tall flag pole, 50-60 feet. They have put a yellow flag; I assume it is their Sikh religion flag.

I'm not sure if there are any rules about putting an American flag above all other flags. I think they should show they are American citizens first and Sikhs second. I hope others have noticed.

    I think people make a big fuss out of nothing - America is not a religion, a religion is above a country. If these guys had their Indian flag higher than the US flag then I think we should all object.
    If a Jewish synagogue had their flag higher than the American flag, I do not think anybody would object.
    One should respect all religions no matter if its Sikhism or Christianity and their must be distinction between religion and state.

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?
