Passionate prose, fact- and reading comprehension-challenged though it may be...
Let's start with "major fataltiies." Unless I'm missing something here, Lodi's accident rate compares favorably with other drop zones of similar size and, if I recall correctly, imposed a 90-degree-landing-turn rule years before most other big centers.
And then there's this, on which you base your claim that the Parachute Center "has yet again been handed a hefty fine."

FAA Press Release
LOS ANGELES – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing a $269,000 civil penalty against The Parachute Center...]
And for what, BTW? A crash? A fatality? A "major" injury?
No, it missed a routine inspection by 13 days.
You also assert that "(l)ast year Lodi was handed what had to be the largest fine ever to a skydiving center ($664,000)."
Passionate prose again, inaccurate though it may be; last year the Federal Aviation Administration proposed a $664,000 civil penalty against The Parachute Center. I don't know its current status, but I do know that one poster with knowledge of FAA practices in this area said that in most cases the difference between the proposed fine and actual fine paid is significant.
Finally, you denounce as improper the fact that USPA's president and another national director jump there when, in fact, you should it take it as a hint because there's a lot more where those two came from; some of the most accomplished and experienced parachutists in the world jump there, come from all over the country and the world to jump there.
And then there's you.
