Welcome to Elk Grove! Violence is out of hand. Elk Grove is no longer a safe place to live. How sad. This beautiful turn of the century town is now Meadowview South.

If I had a hammer,
I'd hammer in the morning,
I'd hammer in the evening,
All over this land,
I'd hammer out danger,
I'd hammer out a warning,
I'd hammer out love between,
My brothers and my sisters,
All over this land.
