Her English language skills were gone, but physicians wanted to assess her native language skills. "I showed her a well- known journal, and she could read one word," said Duncia. "Now she's better, so maybe she can read more words?" Vaitiekunaites has what appears to be some paralysis in her left hand: it doesn't function in the same way the right hand does, said Duncia. Her balance is also affected by the brain injury, so walking is challenging• She tires easily, and her speech is very lim- ited. She recently lost her ap- petite, but Duncia isn't sure if it's related to the physical problems or if it is emotionally related. Soon, Vaitiekunaites will return ence that they become bigs for someone else."

The sketch also adorned the in- vitation sent to big brothers and sisters for the trip. "It was pretty easy to draw. I just looked at a picture of the real ship," Hitchens said with pride as his big sister Jonny Payne beamed by his side.

CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Aug. 8 -Aug. 14, 2003 - 63 Delaware awarded $1 million to combat juvenile crime In an effort to keep more chil- dren safe from violence, prevent delinquency and reduce crimes by minors, U.S. Sen. Joe Biden, a senior member of Senate Judicia- ry Committee, recently an- nounced the state of Delaware will receive $1.03 million to com- bat juvenile crime. "There is no doubt that we need to hold young people accountable when they commit crimes. But we also need to take steps to keep kids out of trouble in the first place," said Biden. "This funding will give Delaware the flexibility it needs to address its most urgent juvenile crime problems." The funding is part of the Juve- HIV/AIDs Kids Fund, as well as the two listed above. Anyone wishing to donate or help out with the Charity Bike Ride is invited to contact Dietz at 302-563-9460.

In the past, Delaware has used the money to establish a Serious Juvenile Offender program through the Delaware Division of Youth Rehabilitative Services. The program provides for im- mediate, secure placement of vio- lent youth offenders who have vi- olated the terms of their proba- tion. Delaware has also used the funds to expand diversionary pro- grams such as Teen Court and Drug Court, and to add psy- choforensic evaluators in the Delaware Office of the Public De- fender to identify and address mental illness as a cause for delin- quent conduct. Biden is the author of the Vio- lent Crime Control and Law En- forcement Act of 1994, also known as the Biden Crime Law, which dramatically increased funds spent on law enforcement.
