On his way to board the plane with his family to Hawaii, 14-year-old Reese Hartwig was looking forward to vacation with his mom, dad and older brother Ryan. That was until he got a call from his agent.

What does it mean to make a difference in the world? Does it have to mean that you’re the president of a nonprofit, hosting lavish donor parties and presenting oversized checks to people? Or does it mean focusing on one community, a group of people or one life at a time?

Undoubtedly many of you will be taking summer vacations. These summer getaways allow for an opportunity to get caught up on some tanning, family fun, relaxation and, if you’re anything like me, self-improvement.

As Lodi’s neighbor to the south, Stockton has been through a lot. Plagued by violent crime and still fighting off the stigma of Forbes Magazine’s 2009 and 2011 rulings that it was the “most miserable city” in America, there is little for this city that got hit hard by the Great Recession to feel good about.

Dear Class of 2014: Here you are. At the end of one journey, about to begin another. I know the feelings going through you right now. Sadness to be leaving friends, fear of the unknown, excitement over what’s to come. You stand at this spot looking at what might be four years of college ahead, perhaps a technical school, maybe you’ve decided to launch right into a career.

Sam Berns grew up with a genetic disorder called progeria. The disease affects only about 350 children worldwide and comes with the unfortunate side effects of rapid aging, heart disease, stunted growth, tight skin and lack of weight gain, to name a few. Progeria is found to end most lives by the young age of 13, since there is no known cure.

A year dripping in scandal — this is the one-on-one with Santa Claus you’ve been waiting for. My annual exclusive interview with the jolly man in the red suit starts right now.

Tragedy. Sometimes it feels like that’s all we hear about. In the news, from friends or, unfortunately, it’s something we ourselves have to witness firsthand.

Have you ever noticed the banners promoting city events on the lamp posts throughout Lodi’s beautiful downtown area? So have I. However, some of the banners just repeat the same thing. Here’s an idea. Instead of having multiple repeats, why not mix promotional banners with banners honoring Lodi’s own brave men and women of the armed forces?

Over the last few months the Obama administration has been at the center of much scrutiny. Scrutiny because this executive branch has been allegedly involved in several different scandals.

You haven't heard from me in a while. I apologize. No, I didn't get canned; no, I didn't quit the column; and no, I didn't move to Canada right after the presidential election, but thank you for your email concern.

We are thankful for a bountiful harvest of wine grapes. Many people enjoy wine, and the word is the yields were strong and the quality in the bottle is going to be great. There's even reliable information that prices are strong.

I want to comment on Wade Heath's column of Oct. 25, expressing his opinion on why he has lost faith in President Obama. Wade, you have a right to an opinion as well as anyone. As I read your comments your facts just didn't jive. What are your sources for news? Your statements sound like sound bites from Fox News.

You might recall that just a few months after President Obama took office I submitted that I was throwing in the towel. I didn't vote for him, but since he won, I was holding out that this out-of-nowhere junior senator from Illinois we knew nothing about was going to live up to the hype. I don't think any sane citizen fancies their leadership to fail thus, further hurting their country.

The United States of America was born because men felt it burning within that they could rule themselves. That freedom wasn't something you were given by another man with a title, but something that you were born with.

The Bible and religion have been under attack by an anti-bullying speaker. The Occupy movement marched across America yelling stuff and breaking things while promising more action in the future and a socialist regime has risen in France. Ah, the future looks bright, doesn't it?

Regarding the column by Wade Heath in the April 5 edition of the Lodi News-Sentinel, I would like to point out the glaring inaccuracy in his opening paragraph.

The Department of Homeland Security posted in an announcement online on Monday that they would be issuing "unlawful presence waivers" to illegal immigrants in order to stop them from being deported. The catch is that the illegal aliens will need to prove they have a family member who is a legal American citizen in order to qualify for the waiver.

Every once in a while, I have this strange urge to cut loose on multiple topics. I call it the combo column.

Willard Mitt Romney. Where to begin? His tax personal income
rate? His horrible inability to connect with normal people?

Since last we met, a lot has changed in the GOP presidential
race. For one, the very left-leaning Jon Huntsman has "suspended"
his campaign, thus thinning the herd even more. Two more debates
have taken place, bringing the total to 4,291 or so, I've lost
count. And the coolest man alive, President Barack Obama, is
suddenly taking a "small government" stance, calling for more power
to help minimize the effect bloated government has.
