In its 60 years of existence, Lodi's Community Band has come a long way — the pride of Lodi. Much credit can be given to former conductor Robert Gross, who himself is a Lodi musical treasure. It's nice to see Art Holton Jr. give youth bands a chance to perform. The Tokay High Symphonic Band showed that music is alive and well.

We’ve hit the two-week pre-summer doldrums I’ve been lamenting about lately, and frankly I think we both have better things to do with our time and efforts than read and write about “Think Like a Man” or “The Lucky One” or “The Three Stooges” or whatever other nonsense that opened last week.
