Guam - In the wake of last week's electrocution death near the Back Road to Andersen Air Force Base, Mangilao Mayor Nito Blas says he and his crew plan to clear debris near power lines. "We are going out and looking for all those trees that are almost touching or even if its touching we notify GPA so they can come and see if they can trim it, if it's lower then we can climb it and cut it ourselves," he said.

25-year old Kanto Emor of Dededo was picking bread fruit when the metal pole he was using came in contact with a power line, Emor fell to ground and later died. Rosaries are being held nightly at 6pm at Emor's residence along Macheche Road. His family is hoping to send his body to Chuuk by June 29 for burial.
