The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "I've seen many green-centered,
gold-margined sports out of 'Sum and Substance'...but 'Lodestar'
is one of the most unusual and distinct. The original plant has
remained relatively small, and it seems unlikely that it will
ever reach even half the size of 'Sum and Substance'."
