M�� 4, 2011 REP. GRIJALVA STATEMENT O ON DEATH OF SAMA BIN LADEN WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Raúl M. Gri- jalva, the co-chair of the Congressio- nal Progressive Caucus, released the following statement on the death of Osama bin Laden: “Thanks to a great deal of hard work and perseverance by our intelligence and military services, the world’s most notorious terrorist has met the same fate he dealt to generations of inno- cent civilians. While we will never cal- culate the homes destroyed, the lives ruined and the families broken on his account, we know that he will never again direct an attack or plan an op- eration. I extend my sincere thanks to President Obama and the many brave men and women involved in the op- eration, who have so diligently sought the fi nal outcome that eluded us for the past decade. “This is not the end of our fi ght against terrorists who wish us harm, but it does close a decade-long chap- ter in that fi ght. Hopefully we can be- gin now to look at how we bring our soldiers home from Afghanistan and Iraq. To the man who claimed that he would never face American justice, we can now say that we have defeated him and are ready to move forward togeth- er as a stronger nation.” FOOD HANDLERS CLASSES La Paz County Health Department holds food handlers classes in Quartzsite all year round.
