Service on the J-Mack Ferry has been suspended because of emergency repairs to the underground cable that guides the ferry, according to the California Department of Transportation. The cable snapped due to heavy current, which caused storm debris.

The J-Mack, also known as the Steamboat Slough Ferry, takes people and vehicles on State 220 between Ryer Island in Solano County and Grand Island in Sacramento County.

During the closure, motorists are advised to use the Real McCoy Ferry along Highway 84. For updates, call the Caltrans Ryer Island Ferry update line at 510-622-0120 or visit www.dot.ca.gov/dist4/deltaferries.

    Nothing like up to date reporting! This happened last Tuesday and the ferry has been up and running for a few days now.

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?
