Stockton man critically injured in solo accident

A 48-year-old Stockton man suffered severe spinal injuries in a crash Friday in south Lodi because he was not wearing a seat belt, California Highway Patrol officer Ted Montez said.

Coy Albert Florez was driving his 1988 Ford Ranger pick-up truck southbound on West Lane when he drifted off the road near Home Church south of Harney Lane at 9:47 a.m., Montez said.

Florez struck a metal guardrail, causing the truck to overturn, Montez said. It rested upright in a ditch. He was driving 45 to 50 mph in a 55 mph zone, Montez said.

Florez was transported by REACH helicopter to San Joaquin General Hospital in French Camp, where he was listed in critical but stable condition Friday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Possible Morada housing development on agenda

A possible subdivision with up to 2,000 homes between Foppiano Lane and the Calaveras River will be discussed at Tuesday's meeting of the Morada Municipal Advisory Council.

A company called Empire Land is looking into constructing the homes on what is now farm land south of most of Morada's residential area, but no application has been filed with either the city of Stockton or San Joaquin County.

In other action, the Morada council will discuss ongoing efforts to get its own zip code to avoid having a Stockton address, forming a community services district to gain control of water, sewer and other services, a potential budget for a newly formed community services district and establishment of a Web site for the Morada Area Association.

Tuesday's meeting, open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. at the Waterloo-Morada fire station, 6925 E. Foppiano Lane at Ashley Lane.

Galt emergency plan to be reviewed

Galt's Public Safety Advisory Committee will continue its review of the city's emergency operations plan at 7 p.m. Monday at Chabolla Community Center, 630 Chabolla Ave.

Sheriff's Department searches for counterfeit suspect

San Joaquin County Sheriff's detectives are looking for a man they believe has knowledge about a major counterfeit operation.

Detectives are looking for Juan Carlos Pomeroy, 22, for questioning in connection with more than $8,000 in counterfeit money being found at a Manteca-area residence, said sheriff's Nellie Stone.

The landlord of Pomeroy's residence at 306 Joseph Road found $8,680 worth of $20 bills, Stone said. The landlord found 43 pages of $20 bills, with each page containing four bills, Stone said. There was other money as well, she said.

Deputies found the money at Pomeroy's residence at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday, Stone said. The landlord told deputies that Pomeroy is only home once a week.

Anyone who knows of Pomeroy's whereabouts may call the Sheriff's Department at 468-4400.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
