Guam - Today is pretty significant...not your typical Guam Friday. It marks the start of several things, including the start of the new International Building Code. It's also the start of the new fiscal year and the beginning of the "Red Ribbon" campaign to keep islands kids drug-free.
October 1 also marks the start of Family Violence Awareness Month, and is the start of the Guam Waterworks Authority's 8% rate increase and the start of ratepayers being able to pay their water bills online.
Finally, today kicks-off in-office voting at the Guam Election Commission at the GCIC Building in Hagatna.
