Kemem2 COMMENTARYCORRECTION: In Saturday’s issue of The Hourglass, the article about the wahoo-mahi shing tournament listed Danny Nabu of Team Cudastanks as Danny Nab. The Hourglass regrets the error.See ONE-SIDED, Page 12 L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor Thanks for help bringing our cat homeAdler commentary was one-sidedTwo days before Christmas our cat got out of our quarters, ran off and got lost. We began an extensive search and put up signs around the island. Trying to nd a cat in the trailer area is like trying to nd the proverbial needle in a haystack. Our two young daughters didn’t understand, and, hoping we would nd our cat soon, we told our 3 year old that her kitty had gone ‘on vacation.’ After two long months we had written our cat off as lost for good. Then, this past week, we received some phone calls that lead to us nding ‘Porklett.’ We really want to thank everyone who asked us on a regular basis whether we had found our cat yet and to those who said they would keep their eyes open. We want to thank the people who called and said they thought they had seen her, especially MerrieBeth Schad, who called last week and was sure she had seen our cat hanging around her trailer. A special thanks goes to Trudy Butler who befriended our cat with lots of sh in the past few days that led us to catching our cat and bringing her home. Our daughters were very excited to see their kitty come home. Again, thanks to all who helped. — Darin and Carla WarrenTo Community Activities and Food Services for a wonderful evening at the Public Gardens for Valentine’s Day. The food was good, the decorations were nice and the weather was great. It was a pleasant way to spend the evening.Dear Mr. Dan Adler, ‘They way I see it?’ With respect, your commentary in the Feb. 21 issue of the Hourglass should be changed to, ‘The way I see it through the media.’ What do you know about the Balkan civil war other than what you have read or seen on TV? Have you been to Sarajevo? Have you been to that little village near Srebrenica you wrote about? By the way, that town is called Portacari. Have you even stepped foot inside the Balkans? Let me ask you this— have you ever heard of the villages of Bratunac, Kravica, Milici or Fakovici? Of course not. You have no idea of the events that occurred there. But why should you. These events really didn’t make the national news and only received a tiny bit of coverage in selected newspapers. I was the rst responder to an old Serbian woman of about 80 who had the bad luck to step on a landmine as she was going about her daily business. This incident occurred in the village of Bratunac, about nine kilometers away from Srebrenica, about seven miles away from Portacari. She died shortly after I carried her into the hospital. To this day I can still see all that blood in the back seat of my car as I washed it out. Have you ever heard of the name Naser Oric? You should have, being that you seem to know so much about the war there, and that you mentioned Srebrenica. Oric was the commanding of cer of the Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) army in and around Srebrenica. He was just as ruthless a war criminal as Ratko Mladic, the Bosnian Serb military general. Mr. Oric is directly responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Serb civilian women and children. In fact, I have an adopted son whose parents were murdered by Oric and his men. His trademark was slaughter of civilians by way of a .50 caliber vehicle-mounted machine gun as he and his men pillaged and plundered village after village. They way you see it on this issue is one-sided. How you view and chose to write on this issue is what heats the small embers of hatred and con ict as your writing wrongly in uences your reader’s opinions on this subject who know nothing of it other than what they read by reporters who do not know the full story.The ethnic cleansing and murder was carried out by both the Bosniaks and the Bosnian Serbs. It just so happened that something as newsworthy as Srebrenica occurred which has continued to overshadow the facts of what really

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2007 3Justin Hill exhibits his ‘better built’ y trap at the Science Fair held Monday afternoon in the multi-purpose room. (Photos by JJ Klein) Young scientists hold competition Monday By JJ KelinReporterWhen is a science fair project not just a science experiment? When you’re ten-year-old Elizabeth Kautz and you’re trying to prove a point to your older brother and younger sister with a project titled, Cavities in a Can. “I don’t like soda, but whenever we go to the beach Abby and Michael usually want soda and my mom agreed to let them,” explained Kautz. “And so, I decided that I was going to show them that soda is bad. “I found out that I was right, that Coca-Cola does more destruction to your teeth than A&W Root beer,” declared Kautz, last year’s winner of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology award. Approximately 81 George Seitz Elementary School students participated in the Science Fair held Monday in the multi-purpose room on the Kwajalein High School campus. The students, kindergarten through sixth, competed for rst, second and third prizes in each grade level, four corporate science titles and the granddaddy award of Scientist of the Year. “We had 16 judges and four returning corporate sponsors this year 3D Research Corporation, Kwajalein Ranges Services, SpaceX and MIT,” said Science Fair Chairperson Candace Everts. “Each sponsor set their own criteria for their awards.” KRS looked for experiments that focused on an engineering issue, 3D scouted booths for weather related projects and MIT searched out innovated research. The Science Fair, sponsored by the Parent-Teacher Organization, is mandatory for students in the fourth, fifth and sixth grades. Nineteen students, kindergarten through third grade, participated in the fair just for the fun of it. Some of the judges agreed that the youngest students blew the older students, sixth graders in particular, out of the water with their projects. Were there any budding scientist? “You know for a kindergartener it’s pretty darn special,” said Eric Nelson, science fair judge, pointing to a project that tried to gure out which swim kick is the fastest for swimming. “This child guessed that a front kick would be the fastest,” continued Nelson. “They took measurements and changed [her] idea based on the results. That’s a true experiment. Simple, clean, elegant.” Cheryle Maxwell, another event judge, saw a lot of creativity in the various experiments. “I think it says that they are very intelligent and creative, and some of them are more devoted than others to their projects, the devotion surprised me,” Maxwell said. “Some of them took quite a bit of time to actually perform the experiments. I think that’s neat.” You may want to talk to Justin Hill. Hill, 10, tried to build a better y trap and measure which trap captured the most ies. “Some kinds do a lot better than others and the one on the back porch caught the most,” explained Hill. “It was a 2-liter bottle with the top inverted with a combination of water, Cornish game hen giblets, cut up chicken pieces and raw ground beef with some rubbed on the inverted top.” Results of the competition were announced at an awards ceremony on Tuesday evening. The winners are: General Science Award :4th Grade —First place, Justin Hill; second place, Riley Alston and third place, Logan Everts. 5th Grade —First place, Elizabeth Kautz; second place, John Sholar and third place, Elizabeth Elkin. 6th Grade —First place, Eva Seelye; second place, Mary Dorries and third place, Jared Klein.Best Group Poject:Kathi Dover’s rst grade classScientist of the Year runner-up : Alan Rosenthal N o t s o w e i r d s c i e n c e Not so weird science Left to right, Abby, Elizabeth and mother Kathleen Kautz set up for the Science Fair Monday.

Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Kwajalein Police Department holds exercise to train officers for quick civil disturbance responseBy JJ KleinReporterChanting “Ri Belle, go home,” a small group of demonstrators gathered on Brandon Field Friday afternoon to vocalize their anger with U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll’s land rights agreement. Kwajalein Police Department Of cers and Marshallese government police responded quickly to arrest the agitators and quell the mock civil disturbance assembled as part of an exercise designed to test KPD’s recall response and crowd control training. “As a contract company, KPD has the responsibility to our customer to be able to react and answer to this kind of incident should it ever actually happen,” explained KPD Chief Joe Barnes about the exercise that ful lls a USAKA requirement to prepare for this type of scenario. While the likelihood of KPD of cers ever having to respond to this type of incident is slim there is always the possibility. “In the past, we have had demonstrations regarding land rights of Kwajalein,” Barnes said, “and there have been incidents where a well organized element such as C o n t r o l l i n g a s i t u a t i o n Controlling a situation Left to right, back row, Constable James Fujiwara, Constable Amos Nabu, Of cer Jeff Swearingen, Constable Namar Nashon and Cpl.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2007 5 Police of cers and constables practice crowd control techniques on ‘protesters’ Friday afternoon on Brandon Field. Greenpeace has attempted to disrupt the operations of this atoll.” Seventy-two of cers, some who were asleep in bed having just nished a shift as well as Kwajalein Atoll Local Government and Republic of the Marshall Islands National police responded to the surprise exercise. They were given police batons or riot shields and a quick, step-by-step training session by the KPD Security Response Team that began the minute of cers answered the recall. The SRT trains weekly and preparations for the civil disturbance exercise began a week earlier when they were put through a “train the trainer” session said Barnes. At this exercise SRT showed the of cers how to assemble in a tight formation, how to maneuver as a cohesive unit closer to an agitated group, how to use the police batons and riot shields in a way that would minimize violence all the while protecting themselves. Police of cers were instructed to hold their ground and respond loudly and with intent when provoked. On the eld of cers holding shields formed a line followed by those holding batons. The of cers wielding batons banged on the shields to shock agitators who physically confronted the formation, while those with shields forcefully commanded, “Get back!”“I’ve witnessed first hand how civil disturbances turned into violent riots where there was massive property damage and people seriously hurt and even killed,” Barnes re ected. “It is volatile, and untrained, unprepared police forces only add to the problem.”As the pretend civil disturbance leaders played by another small group of KPD of cers grew more passionate in their protest, the peaceful sit-in escalated to a demonstration just shy of violence. SRT of cers formulated plans to initiate a “punch-through” tactic in response to the growing agitation. The punch-through drill attempts to “take out the agitators, the leaders,” said KPD Lt. Mike Larsen. “They are the ones leading the crowd. They’re getting them riled up, if we can take them out of the picture that hopefully calms the crowd.” In the third layer of the police formation is the apprehension team. Under protection of a few of cers with riot gear, this team splintered from the formation while of cers closed ranks behind them. The apprehension team in ltrated the demonstrators, handcuffed the leaders inciting the demonstration and successfully retreated back into formation with the primary agitators in this exhibition of non-lethal tactics.The only occasion KPD would put this drill into action is by order of the USAKA Commander through the Provost Marshall Of ce. Mindful of this chain of authority, the exercise taught KPD that “timely information must ow effectively, affording the Commander the ability to make good, solid decisions…in dealing with the dynamics of the crowd,” Barnes said.“We prepare for the worst possible circumstances,” continued Barnes, “with the hope that we’ll never have to be called to perform such a task.” Left to right, Of cer Jeff Swearingen, Constable James Fujiwara and Constable Namar Nashon practice baton techniques during the exercise. “We prepare for the worst possible circumstances with the hope that we’ll never have to be called to perform such a task.” — Joe Barnes, chief of police

Johnny Davis, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll provost marshall and keynote speaker at the African-American History Luncheon honored the accomplishments and contributions of Black Americans in a highly personal speech on Saturday at the Yokwe Yuk Club. Davis re ected on this year’s theme for National African-American History Month, From Slavery to Freedom: African-Americans in the Americas, as he spoke of his lack of interest as a young person regarding slavery in the U.S. “For a brief moment in my life, I like many other African Americans, chose to ignore the period of slavery and the struggles that followed,” Davis admitted. “I, like the others could not have been more wrong. “I found it very dif cult for me to appreciate where I was in my life when I could not relate to where I had come from,” continued Davis. “Now as I look at the many opportunities that are available today such as voting, owning land, opportunity to run for President of the United States, I can only say thank you to the older generations and vow not to let their pain and suffering go in vain and to ensure that the history of the journey they made is not placed on a shelf to be forgotten but passed on to future generations.”African-American History Month observed U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll honors African-Americans with special luncheon Saturday “For a brief moment in my life, I like many other AfricanAmericans, chose to ignore the period of slavery and the struggles that followed. I, like the others could not have been more wrong.” — Maj. Johnny Davis, provost marshalllServicemember memorials unveilled MondayBy JJ KleinReporterThe unveiling and dedication of two memorials honoring United States military service were held oceanside of the airport runway and at the American Legion Post 44 on Monday. The first memorial commemorated the crew and 11 Navy nurses who lost their lives in a plane crash one and a half minutes after takeoff from the Kwajalein airport during the Korean War in 1950. “I am awed by the commitment of these nurses in choosing a Navy career that would take them away from friends, family, safety and comfort of stateside duty at a time when travel and communication was much more dif cult than it is today to deliver world-class health care anytime, anywhere,” said Capt. Lori Carlson, keynote Beverly Vencill and Darryl Lambert unveil the nurse’s memorial on oceanside near the runway.See MEMORIALS, Page 12“I am awed by the commitment of these nurses in choosing a Navy career that would take them away from friends, family, safety and comfort of stateside duty at a time when travel and communication was much more dif cult than it is today to deliver world-class health care anytime, anywhere.” — Capt.

I have lived in Srebrenica for more than a few years.I have personally been to the Portacari grave memorial many times for the eight thousand Bosniaks killed during that hot summer day in early July, 1995. I always visit the same marker. This one grave in particular stood out in my mind during my rst visit. The green, wooden head stone showed that the remains of a boy 14 years old lay dead only a few feet beneath me. At that time my boy was 14. My son is Serb. I have fought tooth and nail, battled through many worrisome, sleepless nights, not to mention all the alcohol-induced tearful ts of frustration, anger and remorse given the events that unfolded in an area I know like a second home, in my efforts to counter the cycle of hatred my boy was taught before I met him. What happened to the Bosnian Muslims was a tragedy beyond scale and something I pray nightly never happens again to anyone. I also pray that each individual person responsible for any crime during this war is brought to justice, Bosnian Serb and Bosniak alike. What occurred in and around Sarajevo is also a horri c crime against humanity. There is more to the story though than what you chose to write. With respect sir, for you to write about it the way you did isn’t right. Please do not take this personally, for this is not my intent. You just have no idea how one-sided your editorial sounded to someone who was there and knows what really went on. You have no idea how your one-sided view sorely affects the next generation of the opposing side. You have no idea how a one-sided view like this makes it that much more dif cult for those trying to break the cycle of hatred between the Bosnian Serbs and Bosniaks. I do realize your intent was a good one as you sat down and typed out these words. For this I commend you. And I’m probably the only reader of this Hourglass who was somewhat offended by your attempt to spread the word on such an important global issue. For this I apologize. — Shilo Watts speaker at the Navy memorial service. Carlson, director of Health Services at the Naval Health Clinic Hawaii, Pearl Harbor Naval Base, ew in from Honolulu speci cally for this event. The second memorial paid tribute to Soldiers and their families who served on Kwajalein since 1944. Lt. Col. Jeffrey Klein, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nation director, served as keynote speaker on behalf of military families currently living on the island. “This memorial will act as a touchstone to link a shared experience – living and working on Kwajalein Atoll – through Maj. Eric Everts and daughter Grace check out the memorial to servicemembers and family members who have served on Kwajalein since 1944. the years,” Klein said standing in front of the 392 by 10-foot Memorial Wall. Recognition of military service and sacri ce was the impetus for both memorials, the brainchild of Beverly Vencill, Memorial Projects Program chairperson.“I want these people remembered for what they represented, their bravery, self sacri ce,” Vencill said referring to the Navy memorial.She also wanted the Memorial Wall to serve as a symbol of gratitude that would celebrate military personnel “and let them know that we do appreciate them.”
