Guam - A local environmental group will take to the streets tomorrow morning in and effort to beautify the island. Jimmy Camacho, the founder and director of the Guam Environmental Alliance says volunteers will head south to paint murals at bus stops, removing graffiti and pickup trash. Camacho says this is just one of the projects the group has planned.
"Graffiti and trash, I think, are big issues," Camacho explained. "You can drive anywhere and its just something that stands out on the island, so this is just a small scale project and we just wanted to contribute to improving our community."
Camacho hopes to have about 30 participants. He says anyone wishing to volunteer can meet up with the group at Talofofo Bay at 7am Saturday morning.
Guam High School and surrounding homes at Naval Hospital have been evacuated after a bomb threat is called in Thursday afternoon. The threat specifically targeted the school. GPD and Navy police are sweeping the area with K-9 units. The Naval Base Guam Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit is standing by in the event anything is found. Guam Homeland Security officials say all measures are being taken to ensure the safety of the public and first responders involved.More >>
