Cheers to three Fairfield-area Rotary Clubs and Solano Community College for coming together to help three graduates of the Police Activities League earn two-year college degrees at Solano College.

The clubs – Fairfield-Suisun, Cordelia and Fairfield-Suisun Twilight – provide each recipient with a laptop computer, will pay for their books and will help pay for a one-meal-per-day voucher and bus voucher as needed. The college will cover tuition costs – primarily through existing community college tuition waiver programs – and will work to cover or help cover the meal voucher cost.

Most importantly, Jowel Laguerre, president and superintendent of the college and a member of the Fairfield-Suisun Rotary Club, has pledged that his staff will support the scholarship recipients so that they are successful in their college endeavors.

Cheers to The Leaven, the Solano County-based after-school tutoring program that will open its 10th site next month, at Parkway Gardens in Fairfield. The newest location will open Aug. 5 and continues both the expansion of The Leaven and the improvement of services at Parkway Gardens, the troubled development that was the site of several shootings over the past couple of years. We’re lucky to have such an organization in the area.

Cheers to the groundbreaking of Fairfield’s $9.6 million, 45,000-square-foot addition to the Carpenters Training Committee for Northern California center.

Ultimately, the building will house up to 30 welding booths, a mill cabinet shop, a general shop area and classrooms – providing a local location for training of important skills in carpentry.

Jeers that the dispute between Solano County court employees and their bosses deteriorated to the point of a noontime rally in front of the courthouse for workers whose wages have been frozen since 2008.

The union’s contract – representing 220 staff members – expires at the end of the year and we are concerned that this portends more difficulties. We encourage both sides to find a solution.

Cheers to the arrest of Dezmon Frazier, who became a fugitive when he didn’t report to court on other charges while waiting sentencing for his role in the 2011 death of the owner of the Travis Dairy.

Frazier posted $50,000 bail after his arrest on allegations of being a felon in possession of a semiautomatic weapon, then didn’t report to court Tuesday. Within a day, Vacaville police had him in custody. He remains in the Solano County jail until he is sentenced in the Travis Dairy case.
