A San Rafael man and his girlfriend were hospitalized with minor injuries after being in a head-on collision on Highway 12 in the Delta, an area known for its hazardous traffic conditions and numerous fatal accident.

The crash took place at about 1 a.m. Wednesday on Bouldin Island, west of Tower Park Marina, according to Ricardo Gaudino, one of the victims, and the Woodbridge Rural Fire District.

Gaudino, 56, told the News-Sentinel that he and his girlfriend, Claudia Goldberg, 48, were headed to Jackson, where they were scheduled to participate in a ceremony at an elementary school to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci's death. America is reportedly named after Vespucci, who determined that what is now North America is not Asia, but a previously unknown continent.

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?
