TASI member calls for end to MOU

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Not everyone's happy about a recent partnership between the TASI (Traditions About Seafaring Islands), and the University of Guam.  With the help of a $92,000 grant, the UOG Sea Grant Extension Program plans to work with the organization to develop a program to teach indigenous fishing techniques. 

But TASI member Ron Acfalle says he wants TASI leadership to tie-up loose ends and make a decision on the Guma Latte Canoe House Project, which has been sitting idle in Ypao Park in Tumon. "To jump into another project which is with UOG; that irks us because as members we're not even informed whether or not we felt that's a good thing to do. We're not given that opportunity to vote and hear out the intent of TASI."

Acfalle heads another group that wants to pursue the project, but they can't take over until TASI officially removes itself from the memorandum of understanding with Department of Parks & Recreation.
