Great High School Football This Friday

The high school football season has yet to reach the halfway point but this Friday night we’ll be treated to one of the best local matchups when undefeated Elk Grove High School will be hosting Grant High School….The Thundering Herd comes into the game with a record of 4-0---1-0 in Delta League play and the Pacers are the same 4-0 and 1-0……Both teams have tremendous coaches----Chris Nixon for Elk Grove and Mike Alberghini for Grant and both programs get outstanding support from their alumni and their community……The winner will have the inside track to first place in the Delta League -----it should be high school football at its’ best.

Coach Dave Morton On News10@9

Laguna Creek High School football coach Dave Morton will be appearing on News10@9 this morning……….The Cardinals are coming off a 36-13 loss to Rosemont last week as they enter Metro League play tonight against Valley……..Laguna Creek is 0-3 but hopes are still high because for the first time in years they won’t be playing a brutal Delta League schedule with the likes of Elk Grove, Franklin, Pleasant Grove and others…..We’re anxious to hear from Coach Morton---we invite you to join us this morning on News10@9

DUI Checkpoint This Friday

The Elk Grove Police Department is conducting a sobriety/driver’s license checkpoint this Friday night, September 26th………This is part of the ongoing effort to remove impaired and unlicensed drivers from the road and is funded by a grant through the UC Berkeley Traffic Safety Center and the California Office of Traffic Safety…….It will be happening at an undisclosed location within the city limits between 7pm and 3am-----be advised!

 

Prescription Drug Take Back

It is prescription drug take back day in Elk Grove this Saturday, September 27th…….From 10am to 2pm the Elk Grove Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will be collecting expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs removing an unwanted and dangerous threat from many homes…….Put all the pills, tablets, and capsules from the packaging and put them all together in one back for disposal………Bring it to 8400 Laguna Palms Way and they’ll dispose of everything for you----the service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.

Chris Hoffman New EGUSD Superintendent

The Elk Grove Unified School District has a new superintendent------Christopher Hoffman was unanimously hired by the board last week after an almost two month long search to replace Dr. Steven Ladd……..Hoffman is 46 years old and it’s a homecoming of sorts for him-----he lives in Elk Grove----he graduated from Valley High School in 1986--- and he served as a vice-principal at Laguna Creek High School……..Hoffman has been the superintendent of the El Dorado Union High School District the last four years so the change for him means a much shorter commute than having to travel to Placerville…….Hoffman will be paid a salary of $270,000 a year along with a monthly transportation/business allowance and if he serves at least eight school years he’s eligible for lifetime post-retirement health benefits…He’ll officially begin the new job November 17th
