A woman found an unknown man in her shower at Sycamore Apartments, 350 W. Central Ave., at 12:47 a.m., Tuesday, Sept. 4. The man reportedly entered the apartment through an unlocked screen door, and then he was allegedly found in the shower by the woman. He repeatedly told the woman that he lived there, then allegedly grabbed her breasts and left out the front door. The man was described as white, in his 20s and he was wearing black pants and carrying a shirt in his hand when he left. Police checked the area on foot but were reportedly unable to locate him.

Developer proposes theme park in Tracy four times bigger than Disneyland

TRACY, Calif. -- A developer is proposing to build a $1.2 billion entertainment hub in Tracy that would be four times bigger than Disneyland.

The Stockton Record (http://bit.ly/Pxv71v ) reports city officials gave James Rogers and Spirit of California the exclusive right to negotiate for 628 acres north of Tracy, about 60 miles east of San Francisco. The Los Gatos developer says the Spirit of California project would include an amusement park, race track, casino, hotel, convention center, wine-tasting center and marina. Rogers is still commissioning studies on the project, but says he wants to break ground in two years and have it built by 2024. But the project is likely to run into opposition from residents worried about its environmental impacts. Local Sierra Club member Eric Parfrey calls the idea a "nonstarter."

A proposal to build a motorsports park north of Tracy has expanded into a plan for a vast entertainment venue with a variety of attractions.

Ultimately, it could make a 400-acre section between Corral Hollow Road and Tracy Boulevard and 125 acres along Sugar Cut leading up to Old River the new home of Spirit of California. The developer could also purchase 103 acres between the northern city limits and the new Holly Sugar youth sports complex.

The Spirit of California project could include 30 new businesses, including a golf course, a marina, an amusement park, a hotel and convention center, a vintners’ center and a casino, plus related su
