MCSO shares stats in Sun City West

Overseeding has three golf courses in Sun City West down, waiting on germination of the rye seed. 

Inclement weather a couple weeks ago forced a delay in throwing seed, to prevent the loss due to winds. But now the seed is down and soon the courses will be covered in rye grass.  

A fundraiser for Folds of Honor took place last week at four golf courses in Sun City West.

The courses accepted $5 donatiosn in exchange for a raffle ticket for prizes, including a driver, shoes, golf clothing, balls, lessons and putters, according to Pat O’Hara, golf operations manager, said.  

O’Hara said through the overseeding process, rounds are minimally down and the same with revenue for the first five days in November.  

Community safety  

Brian Stutsman, Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office District 3 captain, and his deputies conducted a more informal meeting with residents in Sun City West to discuss the increase in property crimes in the area.  

MCSO is returning again. Residents can attend the crime prevention meeting 9-11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, at Palm Ridge Recreation Center, 13800 W. Deer Valley Road. 

“The captain will give crime statistics and ways to prevent crime near or at individual’s homes, as well as things that are being done to solve these crimes,” James Riley, communities property manager, said.  

The venue can hold 700 residents and will concentrate on looking at the statistical crime numbers in a more formal meeting, with the opportunity to ask questions.  

Ron Capriotti, Rec Center Show host on 103.1 KSCW, talked about the importance of Neighborhood Watch programs during the Nov. 8 show. 

“As an unincorporated area we depend on each other,” he said. 

Stutsman discussed, during a previous event, how a Neighborhood Watch can help to keep individual homes and neighborhoods safe.
