Did you know that more than 39 percent of the homeless are 18 years old and younger?

Residents are invited to attend the premiere of the documentary “Left Behind,” a film that chronicles the lives of homeless youths in San Joaquin County. It is being shown at the University of the Pacific’s Janet Leigh Theatre on Nov. 13 in support of Homeless Awareness Month.

The theater opens at 5:30 p.m. A panel and question-and-answer session moderated by Derek Clark, an entertainer and motivational speaker known for “From Foster Care to Success,” will follow the film.

In lieu of entrance fees, Homeless and Foster Youth Services will accept donations for the San Joaquin County Office of Education Educational Foundation.

The film was produced by San Joaquin County Office of Education and directed by Shane Williamson. The use of Janet Leigh Theatre was sponsored by Gladys L. Benerd School of Education at University of the Pacific.

Parental discretion is advised.

    Back in the day these kids would be picked up and either taken home or sent to foster care or group homes. Who has dropped the ball?

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?
