Kate Casey is facing more than a steep, treacherous terrain for a half-marathon. She is trying to conquer a figurative mountain, as well. The 25-year-old philanthropist, a Lodi native and former University of the Pacific water polo player who has finished a year at the university’s law school, is taking part in the Quito Run — a running event in Ecuador this Saturday to raise money for refugees who fled to the country from Colombia.

Oscar Leyva spent the first half of his life in Ecuador serving as a missionary with his parents, who are both pastors. It wasn’t until five years ago that the family moved back to the United States. Their son, then in middle school, only spoke Spanish.

Santa Ana, Ecuador, and Lodi do not have many things in common. They are a few thousand miles apart, in different hemispheres and different countries. But they share one person: Sean McDonald.

At this time, speech and debate is an extracurricular activity
at Tokay High School, led by John Chapman. I want to encourage LUSD
to make speech and debate a permanent class. This will have many
benefits to the Tokay students.

Picture this: Lodi having its own international film festival,
with 200 to 300 movies being shown during a three-day period next

shown at a time in different rooms at Hutchins, said Lodi resident
Barry Ware, one of three business partners in the venture.

Barack Obama is the accidental president. Having little
meaningful political experience is the best and perhaps the only
explanation for Obama's numerous head-first plunges into the cold

So much for change. Hillary Clinton's "3 a.m. response" to the

ally whom we are pledged to defend) was to first condemn the

Recently on a talk radio program, I listened to a commentator
remark on Sen. Hillary Clinton's announcement to seek the
Democratic nomination for president. He is not the only one giving
opinions on the matter. Sen. Clinton's decision to run for
president sent shockwaves throughout the country. For the first
time in U.S. history, a woman could be the President of the United
States. (This is an extraordinary time in U.S. politics, as it is
also possible for an African-American or a U.S. Latino to be
president as well since Barack Obama has announced he is running
and Governor Bill Richardson is considering a presidential

Over the past few weeks, the majority of Americans continued to
