You can't make this stuff up.

Last year, Miami Beach's Gang and Drug Prevention Program, known as the Teen Club, used part of a $50,000 federal grant to take members of the club white water rafting in Tennessee.

This year, the group will receive $651,500 from the Department of Justice's Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. ''That's a lot of white water rafting trips,'' joked U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who, along with Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Shultz, supported the earmark that made the grant possible.
