Guam - Oceanview Middle School's cries for help with overgrown vegetation have been answered. According to Department of Corrections director Jose San Agustin, the agency had the manpower and the equipment to handle the job of cutting down old trees that posed safety hazards for the students and the school's temporary buildings.

He told KUAM News, "I think once we're done we're going to make the place safe, we're going to make the place clean, so the kids can have pride in their school and actually look forward to coming here."

Public Health has continually cited OMS for the overgrown vegetation but DOE, DPW, and GPA could not help due to lack of funding and time. San Agustin expects the work to be finished within the month since his crew can only work weekends when students are out from school. DOC also helps cut grass for seven of the island's northern schools.
