December a century ago was a prosperous time in Lodi. The Bank of Lodi opened its new building in Downtown.

Who can blame these Hawks for refusing to go home? Their playoff debut has been way too much fun. And it’s not about to stop, either.

The Galt Warriors varsity boys basketball team's season-opening
72-65 win at Livingston has become notable — but not for the

On July 4, 1776, the world changed.
It was, until that time, unacceptable for man to govern himself.
To act on one's own free will and accept responsibility for one's

oppression they all once shared.
