Great weather, a well-manicured course and enthusiastic golfers made for a winning combination at the 10th annual Project SAVE golf tournament held earlier this week in Sacramento County. Nearly 100 golfers participated.

Project SAVE (Safe Alternatives and Violence Education) is a program dedicated to aiding young first-time offenders that is operated by the Sacramento County Office of Education. The annual golf tournament fundraiser is the main source of funding for this model community project that has been proven to prevent and reduce youth violence and bullying.

It is a program for adolescent first-time offenders, ages 10 to 17, who have been involved in violence or weapons possession on or near a school campus. The program offers alternatives for the less sophisticated offender who acts without thinking or in response to peer pressure, and who is not yet intimately involved in the juvenile justice system.

All Sacramento County school districts, including both Galt Joint Union High School and Galt Joint Union Elementary districts, may participate.

Partners included Sacramento County Probation Department, Sheriff's Office, Sacramento City Police Department, Superior and Municipal Courts, community members, and the 13 Sacramento-area school districts.

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?
