Sign's facts are inaccurate

I read the article about David Goehring putting up his sign along Victor Road saying, "As you don't plant vineyards in the middle of a school yard, so do you not build schools in the middle of a vineyard."

Obviously he's vigorously protesting the proposed Delta College campus.

Lee Taylor commented in his letter to the editor on Sept. 22, that this sign is hypocritical in that Delta College planted a vineyard on their campus to enhance their horticulture department.

Then there's the front page article on Sept. 21 that the Mokelumne River School is planning to expand into the site of Victor Fine Foods along Highway 99 between Woodbridge and Turner roads so that the current 6.7 acre school campus can add nearly 20 more acres to make the total school complex some 26 to 27 acres total.

The article also states that the Goehring family started Mokelumne River School in 1971. With all this information, it is highly suspected that the Goehring family doesn't remember their own family's history - just where do you think that 20 some acres to plant Mokelumne River School and Victor Fine Foods came from?

It was once prime agricultural land, perhaps even a vineyard land! So do you think that the Goehring family "built a school in the middle of a vineyard or prime agricultural land?" It looks like that could be the case.

I think David Goehring should take down his sign - it looks like he is inaccurate with his facts.

    People who are bad-mouthing the Goehrings: They do a lot of charity for the community. Things that you never see. People that know them personally know what I'm talking about.

    I found the Geohring sign funny. At first, I couldn't figue out what the point was & realized it had to do with Delta. Is this the-pot-calling-the-kettle-black or what? I don't have school age children, but I can definitely see the advantage of having Delta in Lodi. As interested in education as the Geohrings profess to be, this should be a real no-brainer.

    I'm sure we can get by with a little less wine grapes in Lodi. There doesn't seem to be a shortage of wines in grocery stores. In fact, wine probably take up more space than school supplies. How about that for a double standard.

    The Lodi planning commission can set the record straight on the schools
    on land that was once agricultural land. The school on Mills just north of Elm St. used to be a vineyard. Tokay High used to be a vineyard. I'm sure much of Lodi as we see it today was once farm or agricultural land. David and his family are being intellectually dishonest about this matter. Protest if you must, David. Anyway, global warming will flood most of the land Lodi sits on anyway from rising sea levels. Make use of it now while you can.
