Guam - It's an exhibit you don't know want to miss. The Guam Humanities Council in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution tomorrow will open "Journey Stories" at the Agana Shopping Center.

Tiffany Ruhl is a curatorial assistant with Smithsonian Institution's Museum on Main Street program. "Journey stories all starts out with the premise that everyone has a journey story - everyone has come from somewhere else; if you have gone somewhere else that is a journey what was that experience for you."

As part of the Guam tour, the council has developed a local companion exhibit entitled, Sindalu - Chamorro Journeys in the U.S. Military. Project scholar Dr. Michael Lujan Bevacqua said, "The military is such a big part of Chamorro life but I've always found it very interesting that even if everyone says I have cousins family in the military they know so much about the military because people are so intimately tied into it its always good to take an opportunity like to this to really try to deepen the understanding of the Chamorro experience."

The local component of the national exhibit explores the many significant and oftentimes unrecognized journeys of Chamorro men and women who currently serve or have served in the U.S. military. You can view the exhibit starting tomorrow at 6:00pm at the second floor gallery space in the Agana Shopping Center up until August 16th.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
