Use of Scientology-based slogans and pamphlets at the city's new youth outreach center have raised questions, but "The 21 Ways to Happiness" is just a common-sense motto that helps teach morals and values to at-risk youth, Cameron County Juvenile Justice Department Executive Director Tommy Ramirez Jr. said.

The walls of The Bridge, which opened Friday at the former Harlingen Police Station, are decorated with slogans that are included in the writings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

"There are no religions being taught, advocated, or preached by the Cameron County Juvenile Justice Department nor anyone associated with the department," Ramirez said Monday.
