Guam - The Guam Historic Preservation Office says it will not sign the Programmatic Agreement simply because there was not enough public input to be considered from individuals and organizations. Deputy assistant to the Navy for environment Don Schregardus was supposed to meet with officials yesterday, he says no one was there when he stopped by for a visit, but he says he's willing to meet with those officials and other groups wanting to get involved. 

"We try to pick groups based on input we receive that have particular interest and knowledge of those sites, but we'll be happy to work with different folks on this agreement."

"I would look forward to meeting with Parks & Recs' [director] Joe Duenas.

Lynda Aguon said, "I've talked to them many times for several weeks on the phone, so I look forward to meeting with them in person."  As Historic Preservation Officer, Aguon's signature is mandatory under Guam law. Schregardus will be leaving tomorrow to visit the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands and will be back on Guam next Thursday.
