Guam - Kids in the south have a new playground to enjoy thanks to IT&E.  The Justice Taitague Park reopened this weekend in the village of Umatac. The park is named after Justice, the young girl who battled a rare form of leukemia back in 2003.  It was her story that led the effort to form the first bone marrow drive on island.

IT&E's Joe Camacho announced, "On behalf of the employees, the shareholders, the Delgado family from the Philippines and Sumitomo Corporation from Japan, it's our pleasure to make this the first of our community playground donations and as long as I'm here and as long as we can afford it we're going to continue this."

Camacho says the company will open another playground in Tumon early next year.
