Local News in Brief : Hands Against Drugs

A 9,000-foot-long red ribbon was wrapped around City Hall on Wednesday as a symbol of the commitment thousands of schoolchildren made to say “no” to drugs. The ribbon was decorated with the handprints of 7,000 schoolchildren who promised to stay away from drugs as part of a campaign organized by the Chabad Drug Abuse Treatment Program. In a ceremony outside City Hall, the handprints of Mayor Tom Bradley, Supervisor Ed Edelman, Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky, actor Jon Voight and singer Thelma Houston were added.
