Like all baseball fans, I’ve seen what’s happened in stadiums this season whenever Barry Bonds has come to bat. In every city except San Francisco, he’s been booed and jeered. Signs are everywhere saying ‘cheater’ and ‘juiced.’ I saw another huge sign that read ‘Ruth did it with beer and hot dogs, Aaron did it with CLASS, what did YOU do it with?’ Now Bonds has tied Babe Ruth and he’ll hit that 715th home run to pass ‘the Babe’ any day now, perhaps even as this goes to print. But outside of the bay area, I don’t think many baseball fans will give a hoot. Why are the fans and the baseball world reacting that way to Bonds? He’s one of the best to ever play the game. Certainly it’s the possibility that he’s cheated by using steroids. But I think there’s a lot more to it than that. I think it would be a much different scene if it was someone like Ken Griffey, Jr. or perhaps someday, Albert Pujols, passing ‘the Babe.’ They would be cheered on. I was around when Henry Aaron was chasing Ruth’s record. Aaron was a black ballplayer at a time when blacks were still not allowed in white hotels, restaurants or toilets in many areas of the country. He endured the racial prejudice and hatred that was rife in America then. He was booed and treated terribly in some of the cities he played in. He received death threats when he got closer and closer to breaking Ruth’s (white America’s hero) home run record. The thought of that happening was an abomination to millions of white baseball fans. But Aaron prevailed through it all. He later said, “When I was in a ballpark, I felt like I was surrounded by angels, and had God’s hand on my shoulder.” On April 8, 1974, at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, a sellout crowd of 53,775 and a nationwide TV audience watched as Aaron came to bat in the bottom of the fourth inning against the Dodgers. He swung at a 1-0 pitch and hit a line drive over the 385 foot mark in left-center eld for his 715th home run, breaking Ruth’s record of 714. As he rounded the bases, white players from the Dodgers team shook his hand, white fans ran on to the eld to pat him on the back and celebrate with him, and fans in Atlanta and around the country cheered for him. With his grace and dignity, Aaron won everyone’s respect and acknowledgement of his prowess, and he overcame the anger many fans had toward him for breaking Ruth’s record. A smart man once told me it’s not what you do, but how you do it. It wasn’t just the many things that Aaron accomplished, it wasn’t just the home run record, his gold glove awards or his record 24 All-Star game appearances. It was how he did it. It was like that sign said. He did it with total class. USAKA Employee of the WeekMandi MorrisMorris is the Pools and Beaches coordinator. Morris worked closely with the Kwajalein Range Services Environmental Of ce to gure out if there were other environmentally acceptable ways to help the algae issues at the pools. She was diligent in her pursuit of the information and through continuing questioning and dialogue with environmental personnel, it was determined that additional chlorine doses, spread at speci ed intervals throughout the day, would be acceptable. This new approach has been in place since midApril with marked improvements.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, May 24, 2006 3 Kwajalympics promotes ‘all in this together’ theme By Nell M. Drumheller EditorIt went right down to the wire. Saturday’s culmination of eight days of Kwajalympics competition, with 23 events, was decided by gold and silver medals in the swimming relay. The Dye Hard team from Kwajalein Range Services Community Services grabbed the top place with ve points over day-long leaders the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site team. It was easy to spot members of the Dye Hard team. They were wearing tie-dyed T-shirts in yellow, orange and maroon and many were waving tie-dyed ags. The USAKA team made a remarkable turnaround after last year’s not-so-brilliant showing. For most of the day, the only thing hotter than the team in gray physical training uniforms was the blazing sun. “I was impressed with the Army team for bringing us from dead last to solid second – but watch out because next year, revenge will belong to Col. Reed [incoming USAKA commander], and he takes no prisoners,” COL Beverly Stipe, USAKA/RTS commander said. “The spirit of competition and good humor was evident throughout with all of the teams, and I am very proud of all of our competitors; we really have some talent on island, our cheerleaders, and our supporters. May next year be as grand.” — COL Beverly Stipe See TEAM, Page 4Bill Williamson dives into the water in the swim relay. This was the last event of the Kwajalympics and Community Services Dye Hard team took both the gold and silver medals, edging them into rst place past USAKA/RTS.

B u i l d i n g a t e a m Building a team After days of drizzle, the sun shined bright with only a few clouds in the sky on Saturday. The temperature peaked at 87.3 degrees. Neil Dye, volunteer announcer and big voice in the sky, kept things moving along and reminded participants as well as spectators to stay well hydrated and use sun-tan lotion. “I only wish I had listened more closely to the ‘big voice!’ I’m suffering a little sun poisoning and a lot of peeling today,” Stipe said on Monday. Members of the Kwajalein Fire Department stood by with water and lotion, prepared to come to the aid of anyone injured or overheated. Bracket sports were played in the evenings leading up to the nals on Saturday. Teams received points for placing in the top three of each event as well as by sportsman-like behavior and spirit. Kwajalympics Chairman was Torrey Landers. He said that it was a day of team building and great competition. The purpose of the Kwajalympics is to build teaming, increase communications and have safe fun. “The spirit of competition and good humor was evident throughout with “The purpose of the Kwajalympics is to build teaming, increase communications and have safe fun.” — Torrey Landers, Kwajalympics Chairman (Photos by Nell Drumheller)

The last two events of the day were the swim relay and the big splash. The rst heats of the relay identi ed the top swimmers. Announcer Jeff Halliday informed the audience that the nal swim would be after the big Women dressed in Dye Hard colors performed three Marshallese-type dances and ten water nymphs, called the Water Hose, entered the pool and gave a synchronized swim exhibition. Landers suggested that synchronized swimming become part of the next Kwajalympics lineup.

Caution times are 0:01 a.m. today, through 11:59 p.m., Friday. Omelak, Eniwetak and Kwadack are designated as evacuated islands. Meck oceanside caution area is wedge-shaped centered on Meck latitude 9N, longitude 167 43.4E. • Meck-North Point-latitude 9 06.2N, longitude 167 47E • Center point (along center axis of wedge) latitude 9 N, longitude 167 50.8E. • South point of wedge-latitude 8 53.8N, longitude 167 47E. In conjunction with this operation, a caution area will exist within the Kwajalein Atoll starting Tuesday. The caution area is bound on the north by Boked Island on the east reef and Yabbernohr Island on the west reef. On the south, the area is bounded by a line drawn north of Bigej Island on the east reef to a point at latitude 08 54.2N, longitude 167 45.8E, then Range operation scheduled today through Friday to a point at latitude 08 52.8N, longitude 167 45.8E and then to a point north of the high tide mark on Ninni Island on the west reef. Bigej Island, including the inner reef, is speci cally excluded and is not part of the midatoll corridor. In order to ensure clearance of nonmission support personnel from the mid-atoll corridor by the window opening time, Kwajalein Police Department island clearing procedures will continue until evacuation has been accomplished. Egress of all air and seacraft will be required when requested by authorized clearance personnel. Subsequent to lagoon clearance, the hazard area will be in effect until mission completion. Questions regarding the above safety requirements for this mission should be directed to USAKA Command Safety Directorate, Range Safety of cer, 51361 or 54841. The mid-atoll corridor will be closed for this operation to allow ground surveillance of the mid-atoll corridor to be completed. When closed, no vessels shall be permitted in this area without prior approval from USAKA/RTS Command Safety Directorate. The area closure is indicated by the ‘red ag system.’ The Range Safety of cer will release the midatoll corridor closure when the area is clear of hazards. Mid-atoll caution area Meck Island surface hazard area for operation K6593 Omelak, Eniwetak and Kwadack will be evacuated islands for this operation.In 1998, Mark McGuire of the Cardinals and Sammy Sosa of the Cubs thrilled the country with their home run chase. During that season, neither McGuire nor Sosa was arrogant or dismissive of the fans. In fact, one of the rst things McGuire did after he came to the St. Louis Cardinals from Oakland was donate $1 million to St. Louis charities. Both he and Sosa were class acts. So even after it’s come to light that they may have used steroids, baseball fans still felt goodwill for them, even though their accomplishments that season may be tainted.I don’t know if Bonds used steroids. None of us will ever know for sure probably. But we do know that when the fan who caught his 713th home run ball asked him to autograph it, Bonds just walked away. That’s how Bonds has conducted himself throughout his career. He’s always been in a class by himself, but he’s seldom been classy. Not always, but sometimes, a man will reap what he sows in his life. If he treats others with disdain and contempt, then he shouldn’t be surprised or upset if that’s how he is treated. If he rewards those who praise him with arrogance toward them, he shouldn’t be upset if the praise stops. Does Bonds deserve being booed and disrespected at every ballpark in the country? Does he deserve the fans’ contempt and disdain? Well, sometimes it’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.
