Report from the Front Line: The Drug Battle in Central Florida, Hearing before the Subcommittee on National Security, International Affairs, and Criminal Justice of the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session, October 14, 1996   [open pdf - 6MB]

From the opening statement of William H. Zeliff, Jr.: "So, you know, as one small piece, that is a very effective part of the war as well. And then you get into the transit zone and trying to stop it from coming across the border. We had a meeting with law enforcement this morning and we talked about the problems of product coming up from Mexico, and we are working on a program called Operation Gateway. We are looking at a five-legged stool frankly, where you have programs that have to be balanced, they have to be education, prevention, treatment, transit zone programs and source country programs. So-and somehow, all of this as it comes together, and you hear about your kids going to D.A.R.E. programs, there are other programs out there, and your law enforcement working their hearts out at a great risk to their lives and their families. But eventually the parents have to come in and take a place and the community has to get involved. Eleven percent of the parents today in this country are talking to the kids about drugs. That means that 89 percent are not. " Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Win Adams, Joan Ballard, Kim Barnes, Richard Boddecker, Ernest Cantley, Robert Breaux, Marge LaBarge, Jim Dawson, Wolfgang Halbig, Cindy Crane, Gorge Duryea, Cathy Gamble, Brenda Gilliam-Jones, Seldon Henry, Richard Jones, Diane Kerr, Pat Larkin, Darlene Lee, Ann McDaniel, Chris Morris, James R.
