Raising gas prices paid for BP’s fines

Commercials can be one big lie. I am so sick of BP's television commercials; over and over again telling us how they had to spend $23 billion on clean up, another $2 to $4 billion in fines that they had to pay. They didn't pay one red cent. You and I paid for their mess and every mess they ever made. And we will be paying for a lot more.

They only have to add five or six cents to a gallon of gas for a month and they can pay off anything, and still end up with a profit. I know we need oil at this point in time, but I don't think we should be drilling holes in the ocean floor — our ocean. There are a lot of other places on land to drill. And what are the British doing on our side of the pond? I, for one, don't like it.

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?
