The Lodi Library Foundation Board hosted the thirteenth annual dinner at the Library —- The Art of Storytelling on Sept. 28. The evening was a grand success with Dave Ehlert of Branson, Mo., telling stories as Mark Twain.

The dinner is held in the library, which means all of the furniture must be rearranged to make room for dinning tables and chairs to accommodate dinner guests. The board members are not physically able to assemble the seating areas without help. So once again, Lodi’s high school students lent helping hands.

Before the dinner, Lodi High School Interact Club was there to place tables, chairs, linen, plates, glassware and cups for the dinner guests. Saturday evening for the dinner, students from the Bear Creek High School Key Club came to help Scooters Catering serve dinner to the attendees. Sunday morning, the McNair High School Key Club turned out in force to clean up and ready the library to open by noon.

Whenever I hear disparaging remarks about teenagers, I think of the Library Dinner. The students who came — 50 of them this year —- are the cream of the crop. They come with smiles on their faces and a “what can we do to help” attitude. They do whatever they are asked with energy and a cooperative response to each task. The Lodi Library Foundation Board members commend these students for their community service. The dinner would have been impossible without their generous and gracious help.

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?
