For the last 12 years you have printed my letter about our Widowed Persons Association of California, Lodi chapter No. 6, a nonprofit organization. Again we are searching for recently widowed persons of all ages, either male or female, to visit our organization. Our membership has declined in the last couple of years with the loss of so many members.

I became a member of the WPAC when my husband died almost thirteen years ago. It has enriched my life over these past years with the caring, love and support of many new friends who also shared similar losses in their lives. I was saddened again with the loss of three more loved ones during the last 10 years, and again my many friends from the group supported and helped me through these new losses.

The purpose of WPAC, Lodi chapter No. 6, is to provide a support group for widowed men and women of all ages, and to promote a wide range of social activities throughout the year. We also sponsor the Bereavement Support Group that meets the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month at Hutchins Street Square at 11 a.m. For information about the bereavement group please call 366-2840 or 957-6067 or Hutchins Street Square at 369-6921.

We now meet the second Saturday of each mouth for luncheon and business meeting at the Woodbridge Country Club Fireside room at 11:30 a.m. We invite all interested widowed persons to call 368-4758 or 339-4680 for reservations or information. We would like to continue to reach out to all widowed persons in this area.

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?
