Kemen COMMENTARY L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor Former resident enjoyed Kwaj Kids articleNow I know why there’s a ‘delete’ keySee DELETE, Page 6Hello! I just read J.J. Klein’s article about teens leaving the island for college in the states. I wanted to reiterate that almost everything in the article is so true to even us adults. I lived on Kwaj for ve years, and I’ve been back for four, and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss something about Kwajalein life..the friends, the lifestyle, the community. Particularly true is the statement about sports...on Kwaj you could do all of them regardless of skill, and have fun. In the states, you do have to be very good to be included. Good article! —Julia OlsonSince I wrote a column in the July 19 issue of The Hourglass defending Israel in their ght with Hezbollah and saying that I’m part Jewish, I’ve received several e-mails from a person I don’t know and really don’t care to know. She says she sends this stuff because we (meaning me I guess) at The Hourglass are misinformed about the Middle East. Now, my pen pal has just sent another e-mail with an attached article written by an ‘informed’ man who doesn’t appear to me to be living in reality. I won’t give the writer’s name or the publication he writes for. He sounds like he’s the kind who would sue me. But if anyone out there would like a copy of the publication that was sent to me, I’d be happy to give you one. I’ve never heard of this guy before and I wish it had stayed that way. When I read what he had written, it pushed most every button I have. My rst inclination was to dismiss it out of hand, but then I thought that since I’ve in icted my opinions on people, I should be willing to subject myself to someone else’s (even if they are totally wrong). So let’s examine the writer’s opinions. He seems to think the folks in Hamas, Hezbollah and other Islamic terrorist organizations are really great guys. They’re just misunderstood by us bad people in America and Europe. Apparently, he believes America and Europe are racists against all the Arabs and that’s why we support Israel. I guess it couldn’t have anything to do with the fact that Israel is the only real democratic country in that part of the world where other religions are tolerated and where women have rights, aren’t treated like cattle and their husband, father or brother isn’t allowed to beat or kill them with impunity. I suppose it couldn’t have anything to do with the suicide bombers that have blown up busses, restaurants, nightclubs and even weddings and killed thousands of innocent people. No, it couldn’t have anything to do with that. And it sure couldn’t have anything to do with the fact that Israelis have contributed to the world with science, medicine, technology and art while Hamas and Hezbollah have contributed mostly terror, death and hatred. Geez, we must be out of our minds to support Israel. And as far as Europe and the world being racist against Arabs let’s get real. The United Nations has passed some 750 resolutions concerning the Palestinians and the Israelis. Of those 750 resolutions, more than 450 have condemned Israel for one thing or another. I don’t recall that six million Arab men, women and children were slaughtered by the Nazis as were the Jews Oh, wait, according to many people, especially that cuddly president of Iran who wants nuclear weapons, and whose goal is to destroy Israel and the western world, all that killing of the Jews never happened. The writer goes on to say that President George W. Bush is a hypocrite because he talks about wanting democracy in the Middle East, yet when the Palestinian people elected Hamas, he refused to talk to them and cut off all aid. The writer seems to forget that Hamas rst refused to recognize Israel’s right to exist, continued to vow Israel’s destruction and declined to


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 19, 2006By J.J. KleinReporterThe laughter of one person was missing when the Buck family stopped on Kwajalein after participating in the dedication of the completed translation of the Kosraean Bible on Kosrae, Aug. 9. That person was Alice Buck, the same woman instrumental in getting the Bible translated into the Kosrae language. Elden Buck, Alice’s husband and the Kwajalein Protestant chaplain for 18 years, and 19 family members of the Buck clan were treated to a dinner in their honor by the Protestant Chapel congregation on Monday. “When I was here two years ago several of you said, ‘Why don’t you stop on Kwaj with your family,’” Elden said, laughing. “When I mentioned it to Lisa and Lauren they were ecstatic because they had been here all through school…it was just too important a place to land and then take off again.” Alice and Elden are beloved people on Kwajalein and on Ebeye, where Alice worked 18 years translating the Marshallese Bible and Elden pastored and headed up the church school. The Buck family spent Tuesday evening on Ebeye, touring the island and showing the youngest family members where they grew up. But the sole purpose of their trip was to celebrate the dedication of the completed translated Kosraean Bible, a project Alice had nurtured and guided since 1992. Twenty-one family members and friends made the trip to Kosarae together to witness the completion of Alice’s painstaking work. “Because Alice had been so concerned and excited about the whole family being in Kosrae, and when she died so suddenly, the family wanted very much to honor her by going ahead with what she had hoped for,” said Elden. 3Alice BuckHello again, our old friends Buck family visits Kwajalein after Bible dedicationUnfortunately, Alice was unable to experience the completed work. She nished revising the spelling in March and was almost nished with the glossary when she died of stomach cancer in June, 2004. “She worked at her computer up until four days before she died, trying to complete the glossary. I walked into her of ce and she was shaking. She was very, very ill. I told her that I thought she should rest,” said Elden. “And she turned to me and said something which she had never said before, and that was, ‘You know Elden, I think you can nish this.’ “We were just thrown for a loop when she died,” continued Elden. “It was a sad time for the whole family, and the Kosraean church.” Having worked together for all of the 49 years they were married, Buck agreed to pick up where Alice left off when the Kosraeans asked for his help. He continued work on the glossary by e-mail from his computer in Claremont, Calif. Although 9,000 copies of the translated Bible have been printed, only 96 Bibles made it to Kosrae. The Bible Society could not guarantee to have the Bibles ready and shipped in time for the dedication. Only after a little prodding from Elden, was a shipment airmailed to Kosarae where they arrived the day before the event. A 1,000 people attended the dedication service that was both exciting and bittersweet for the Buck family. On that day Lisa Haley, Alice’s daughter, hung her mother’s necklace around her neck, while her sister wore one of Alice’s rings. “Part of me was thinking she should have been here to hear all of these accolades and the joy and experience, but really she was in very many ways. She was smack in the middle of it, not just being mentioned by name but in our hearts,” said Lauren Buck-Medeiros, another daughter. “I just looked around at the students she taught, the elderly people who mentored her, the ones who really impassioned her for this work, everything felt very right that it was nally happening. “She loved working on this project. It was so important. It wasn’t like working on a needlecraft kind of a hobby,” said Buck-Medeiros. “This is going to plant a seed and have an impact for generations to come.” At the end of this month, 9,000 Kosraeans will have the chance to read the entire Bible in their own language, a lifetime of work come full circle thanks to Alice Buck.

4 29th Engineer Battalion team is excited to make a difference by repairing Enniburr SchoolResponding to a great need U.S. Paci c Command funds school repairsBy J.J. Klein ReporterThe Enniburr school facility will undergo extensive building repairs in the next ve months thanks to a humanitarian assistance project authorized by the U.S. Department of Defense. The U.S. Paci c Command, the multi-service combatant command responsible for overseeing all DoD operations in the Paci c region, green lighted the $65,000 project to repair the deteriorating school where approximately 250 of the children living on Enniburr Island are educated. “The school is near closure due to structural concrete damage,” said Floyd Corder, KRS Roi-Namur operation’s manager. A hazard for its students and teachers, the school principal voiced concern asking if and when the school would undergo renovation “before someone was going to be injured,” according to Noda Lojkar, representative of the government of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. “Since the 1999 renovation, the school’s east cinderblock wall, which is very close to the windward shore line of the island, has signi cantly deteriorated as evidenced by cracks and spalling concrete,” said James Landgraff, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll engineer. The damage is the results of untreated rebar reacting with salt air, swelling the concrete to the point of cracking. The funds will be used to repair the ocean-side retaining wall, replace the ceiling at the eaves, x and reinforce the roof, and replace the window sills and jams as well as cover the costs of manpower, materials, equipment rental and troop sustainment. USAKA enlisted the aid of Sol-


5 diers from the 29th Engineer Battalion, the same team that worked on the Palm Bachelors Quarters explosive reduction. Unlike their work on Kwajalein, the Soldiers demolished the speci ed school walls completely by hand using sledgehammers, pick axes and shovels. The Soldiers had to refrain from using any heavy machinery to avoid unnecessary damage to the school building. These young men are excited about serving this community, in particular the children of Enniburr, and plan to build a rope swing when the demolition is complete. Commenting on the circumstances of the Enniburr community Cpl. David Yadon said, “You see it on TV and you don’t really know. And then you get here and see it, and bam.” He continued, “It’s great coming over hear and helping out. The kids come out and watch us.” Still in the early stages, completion of the Enniburr school repair project rests on the collaborative efforts of the USAKA Public Works department, the Host Nations Activities of ce and Kwajalein Range Services. From start to nish the workforce. “Roi-Namur will bene t in the long term if the residents who live on Enniburr are well educated. The ability of our work force to read, write and perform basic mathematical operations is essential to the continued operation on Roi,” said Taylor. “The RMI government bene ts as it can complete a currently unfunded project much sooner and at no cost allowing for future spending on other school construction projects.”Originally built in the 1960s by the North Dakota National Guard, the school underwent an initial refurbishing campaign by the North Carolina National Guard in 1999. That project cost $100,000 and paid for structural repairs, replacement of the roof and window repairs.When the school repair project is completed the children of Enniburr, according to Corder, “will see a repaired facility that will be safe to occupy,” putting the focus back on learning. As Lojkar said, “It is going to improve the education of the children of Enniburr dramatically…and strengthen the relationto 90 days according to Corder. Corder identi ed the deterioration of the Enniburr school to the HNA of ce in July 2005, which reported it as a possible aid project to PACOM. “While this project is very important to us, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been receiving priority in funding and manpower; in the current overall world picture, we are relatively a lower priority,” said Alan Taylor, the RMI Relations specialist with the HNA of ce. “The fact that we had a project ready to go and that we could execute it in a relatively short timeframe worked in our favor.” The success of this project has immediate consequences regarding employee retention on Roi-Namur. “If the school closes the employees will be forced to move to Ebeye or Majuro to educate their families,” said Corder. “If the employee retention is affected then USAKA ends up picking up the cost for re-training and education of a new workforce.” The repairs on Enniburr, home to nearly 120 employees of RoiNamur, will have a lasting impact as well for USAKA, as the children of these workers will one day rechildren have a school.

If Hamas wants to be a terrorist organization and threaten other people, then I for one don’t see any reason why we should help them, even if they were ‘democratically’ elected. After all, Adolph Hitler was ‘democratically’ elected too. If, on the other hand, Hamas would join in a legitimate, rational, political discourse and quit vowing to destroy Israel and recognize other people’s right to exist, then maybe the western world would be more willing to listen and to help. But after someone says they want to kill you a few hundred times, it gets irritating. I guess this guy thinks that Bush should deal with Hamas and give them aid no matter what. Sorry sir, I’m with the president on this one. Then he takes up the recent Israeli-Hezbollah battle. He says that Bush calls Hezbollah a terrorist organization although they are a ‘legitimate’ part of the Lebanese government. He fails to mention that Syria and Hezbollah made the Lebanese people’s lives hell during Syria’s occupation of Lebanon and that the Lebanese celebrated in the streets when the Syrians left and that most of the people in Lebanon would have liked Hezbollah to go with them. The writer goes on to say that Bush held up an immediate cease re between Israel and Hezbollah because he wanted to give the Israelis more time to destroy Hezbollah. Duh! I suppose a cease re that left Hezbollah and their thousands of rockets sitting on Israel’s doorstep would have been just ne with this guy. Sorry dude, I’m with the president on this one, too. If you’re keeping score, that’s two for the president and nada for you.This guy further wrote that Hezbollah only kidnapped those Israeli soldiers to start negotiations for a prisoner exchange. Those war-mongering Israelis didn’t have to blow up Hezbollah rocket launchers and hideouts and weapons caches and ammo dumps and all that. It would have been nice and peaceful if Israel had just negotiated and let hundreds of terrorists out of prison (so they could kill more Israelis). The writer says that after all, the Israelis have kidnapped Palestinians and taken them to prison. Does he mean the peace-loving Palestinians who train dozens of young suicide bombers and send them into Israel to kill hundreds of innocent people? The Palestinians who hatch terror plots? Are those the Palestinians he’s talking about? Get this: He actually has the gall to say the kidnapping of those Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah was a ‘legitimate’ raid by soldiers against soldiers. I don’t know what his de nition of legitimate is, but if crossing Israel’s border, killing eight Israeli soldiers and kidnapping two more is ‘legitimate,’ then why isn’t Israel’s response to it legitimate? But for the heck of it, let’s say this lugnut is right and the kidnapping raid was ‘legitimate.’ Then it was an act of war and Israel’s response was warranted. Is that what you’re saying mister? And sir, it wasn’t soldiers against soldiers, it was murderers against soldiers. But, he really does seem to feel that the Israelis should have just accepted the kidnappings and not gone all Rambo on Hezbollah. He says that after all, when those two American Soldiers were captured in Iraq, Americans didn’t blow up bridges, shell houses and bomb cities to get them back. No, we didn’t. But we should have. Look how they came back. The article this guy wrote says that the night of the kidnappings, only a ‘few’ mortar rounds were red into Israel as a ‘distraction’ and gee, nobody was killed (by the mortars) and Israel shouldn’t have gotten so angry about the whole thing. And, according to our friend, Hezbollah didn’t start ring rockets into Israel until the bloodthirsty Israelis red back against those ‘they were only a distraction’ mortars and commenced air strikes. As I recall, that’s not the way it happened, but what the heck, why bother with the truth, right? He mockingly says he didn’t know there were so many terrorist babies, children and grandmothers.

Davis said that passengers will not be allowed to carry containers holding liquids, gels, aerosols, perfumes or toothpaste, including bottles of water. Airport security personnel By J.J. KleinReporterWere you puttering around your quarters, half listening to the news when the words ‘Grace Sherwood’ and ‘Virginia witch’ shook you out of a daze? Grace Sherwood, hey, is that our Grace Sherwood of the Kwajalein Grace M. Sherwood Library fame? Nah, don’t kid yourself. Nothing that juicy would ever be part of the Kwajalein folklore.The tale of two Sherwoods is that one was convicted of being a witch, and the other was a benevolent Rhode Island librarian and lyricist.The Witch of Pungo, as Grace Sherwood was called, was pardoned by Virginia Governor Timothy M. Kaine on July 10, 300 years after she faced a trial by ducking. The ducking test was simple, if she oated she was guilty, if she didn’t she was – dead. It was commonly believed that water was pure and would not permit a witch to sink. Sherwood’s thumbs were tied to her feet and she was thrown into the Lynnhaven River. Too bad or maybe not too bad, who knows, but Sherwood bobbed on the water and was thereafter labeled a witch, and whisked off to prison for the next seven years. Our Miss Sherwood was Rhode Island’s State Librarian during World War II until she retired in 1962. The library on Kwajalein was named after Dr. Grace M. Sherwood because of her generous book donating activities. This Grace collected stacks and stacks of books and then sent them to service men overseas as part of a war project called the Book Pool for the Armed Forces. Even after the war the project continued and books were sent to Army posts and Naval bases from Germany to Alaska. Funny but, none of Grace’s book boxes ever made it to Kwajalein, huh?

Mission Impossible III The third entry in Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible lm series involves super Impossible Mission Forces agent Ethan Hunt (Cruise) being forced back into the eld just when he was planning on marrying his girlfriend, Julia (Michelle Monaghan). The agency asks Hunt to save an operative (Keri Russell) he trained after weapons dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman) kidnaps her. With the help of his eld team — played by Ving Rhames, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, and Maggie Q — Hunt achieves his goal, but becomes involved in a web of double-crosses that leave him wondering if he can trust his superiors Just My Luck Two people discover just how true the old adage “lucky in life, unlucky in love” can be in this romantic comedy. Ashley (Lindsay Lohan) has always been the sort of girl fortune smiles upon — she’s pretty, she has a great job, she had good friends, guys fall over themselves to ask her out, and she never has trouble getting a cab. Jake (Chris Pine), on the other hand, is not nearly so lucky — he’s clumsy and accident prone, things never seem to go his way, and he’s just lost his job at a bowling alley. However, these two opposites meet one night at a ritzy masquerade ball, and Ashley and Jake exchange an impulsive kiss as two shooting stars cross in the sky. Suddenly, they both nd their luck taking a one hundred and eighty degree turn; Jake is befriended by a wealthy musician and suddenly nds himself successful and ush with cash, while Ashley loses her job and her apartment after a major misunderstanding with the police. While Jake’s luck with women has also taken a turn for the better, he’s become deeply infatuated with Ashley, and tries to help her turn her life back around as he struggles to win her heart.

I believe Israelis did everything they could to minimize Lebanese casualties, but their countries’ survival is what they ght for. Innocent Israelis died too and they didn’t start this. As far as ‘terrorist’ children are concerned, the world sees young men and women, some still in their teens, who are taught that killing themselves and other people is the way to God. We see young children wearing explosive belts and admiring themselves in front of mirrors. We see parents pray to Allah that their children will grow up to be martyrs. And the president of Iran says there are 50,000 suicide bombers ready to be launched against America, Israel and Britain. Well, sir, it seems that there are terrorist children and your precious buddies in Hamas, Hezbollah and other terrorist groups have made them. Perhaps sir, you should read Jill Carroll’s article in the Christian Science Monitor about her abduction in Iraq by insurgents. She says the car driving her away had children in it, along with the men who had just killed her friend and driver and taken her prisoner. She writes that when she asked one of the children, a little boy of about ve who he was, he answered, “I’m a holy warrior.” As Carroll writes, he was already indoctrinated at only ve years old. Sir, are the people who are turning that little boy and others like him into ‘holy warriors’ all through the Middle East the kind of people you really want to defend? If, as some in the world say, all of the hate and terrorism is rooted in the plight of the Palestinian people, then why doesn’t the Arab world help them? Why doesn’t the Arab world build them an infastructure and a working government and a civil society. Why does it fall to the western world? Why is it all our fault? When Palestine was partitioned in 1948, the land that was given to the Jews was 60 percent rocky, barren desert. From that, the Israelis built farms, businesses, an economy, a democratic government and a ourishing society. They built it out of nothing. Why then, can’t the Palestinians? Why, after almost 60 years since the Let’s be careful out there!School is back in session and small children will be out on their bikes. Use extra caution when driving vehicles and when riding your bikes. Watch out for the little ones and let’s keep them safe. FUN RUNKwajalein Running Club's monthly Fun Run is Monday.

Call Bob or Jane, 51815.partitioning, are some Palestinians still living in refugee camps? And, my ‘informed’ friend, when President Bill Clinton brokered a deal with the Israelis that would have given the Palestinians 95 percent of what they wanted, who turned it down at the last minute? Oh, yeah, that wonderful humanitarian, Yasser Arafat. The article this guy wrote shows how some people can take facts and twist them around to suit their own version of what they want the facts to be, no matter how much twisting it takes. Or worse, ignore the facts altogether. According to the writer of that drivel, others like him, and the lovely woman who sends this stuff to me, America and Israel are the cause of all the world’s ills and that’s what they will always believe no matter what. Perhaps they would be happier living in Tehran. Perhaps they should move there. Perhaps I’d buy their plane tickets. I’d like to take this opportunity to invite the lady who sends me this junk not to do it anymore.But at least now I know why the ‘delete’ key was invented.
