Disneyland. The Happiest Place on Earth. The sound of the Disneyland Railroad steam whistle piercing the air. The wind blowing through your hair as you plunge into the darkness of Space Mountain. The aroma of popcorn as you stroll down Main Street U.S.A. The Magic Kingdom.  

Oh, and the crowds packed shoulder to shoulder in the summer heat waiting to see a parade, seemingly endless lines for a minute-long ride, paying $12 for a fast-food hamburger and soda and screaming children because they can’t have that Mickey Mouse shaped balloon that will float out of their hands shortly after you spend far too much money on it.

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — A 3-year-old girl was killed Friday after being ejected from a vehicle in a rollover crash on Highway 99 in Northern California, authorities said.

In addition, a 10-year-old boy was airlifted to University of California, Davis Medical Center, and a 9-year-old girl was taken to San Joaquin County General Hospital. Their conditions could not be immediately determined.

The crash in Modesto involved a 2000 Isuzu carrying two adults and four children, and a 2012 Toyota containing two adults, California Highway Patrol spokesman James Smith said.

The Isuzu overturned several times, and its driver and surviving passengers were all hospitalized. The driver was identified as Maria Romero and her adult passenger as Eleazar Munoz.

The cause of the accident has not been determined.

The driver of the Toyota was identified as Andre Peterson, and the passenger as Linda Fischer, 52. They were not injured, authorities said.

None of the children's names were released.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. 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?
