See PEACE, Page 12 There was a time not so long ago when the Northern Ireland cities of Belfast and Londonderry were in the news as often as Baghdad and Anbar Province are now. For decades the Protestants, who were loyal to Britain, battled the Roman Catholics, led by the Irish Republican Army, who wanted to break away from British rule. The hatred between them was centuries-old.Belfast and Londonderry resembled Baghdad with car bombs going off in the streets. The bodies of people who had been shot execution-style were discovered in the streets almost every day. It was eye-for-an-eye and toothfor-a-tooth. It spanned generations in a never-ending cycle of hate and violence. The carnival committee would like to thank all of our volunteers; teachers, parents, National Honor Society, Boy Scouts, high school students, and friends who helped with clean-up and the Â‘carnies.Â’ You helped to make this yearÂ’s carnival a great success. We would also like to say thank you to Community Activities for all of their help and to Child and Youth Services for allowing us to use some of their equipment.

They backed the Protestant government against the Catholic IRA. British soldiers patrolled dangerous streets and kicked in doors searching for weapons and bomb-making factories. They were ambushed and killed by bombs on an almost daily basis. They dealt with everything from rockthrowing children to snipers. Terrorism on both sides was a way of life in Northern Ireland. The British would have loved to leave, but couldnÂ’t because by law they had to support the loyal Northern Ireland government. It looked like it would always be the same and nothing would ever stop it. There were some feeble attempts at peacemaking, but none ever got very far. There was just too much distrust. Then, on Aug. 15, 1998, came the Omagh bombing. Omagh is a quaint town full of shops and open-air markets. ItÂ’s almost always busy with people shopping for food and other items. Because of the ongoing violence, tourism was almost non-existent in Northern Ireland. But on that day, Spanish tourists and others had come
The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 28, 2007 3Persons under in uence of alcohol, drugs will not be permitted to board civil aircraft at Kwajalein airportDrinking wonÂ’t y By Nell DrumhellerEditorIf you drink to excess, then donÂ’t expect to y. Â“Under the Code of Federal Regulations, 49 Part 91.17 it states Â“Except in an emergency, no pilot of a civil aircraft may allow a person who appears to be intoxicated or who demonstrates by manner or physical indications that the individual is under the in uence of drugs (except a medical patient under proper care) to be carried in that aircraft,Â” explained Donald Davis, manager, Airport Operations. Â“They will be denied boarding,Â” Davis said of would-be passengers who appear inebriated. Davis said this is often an issue, but there have been four or ve instances over the last six months. Â“Airport Operations, as operating agents for the airline, must not permit a passenger to become a potential danger to themselves or others and will, therefore, prevent boarding if a doubt exists,Â” he added. Â“All of our constables, access control of cers and of cers have been trained to identify individuals who are impaired,Â” Chief Joe Barnes, Kwajalein Police Department, said. Â“At the time it is suspected that someone is impaired, our of cers will detain and submit the person to a eld sobriety test similar to that used in traffic situations,Â” Barnes said. Â“If the person does not negotiate the test successfully, they are then charged with public intoxication and processed for the violation at the police station. After processing, they are detained in our detention facility until such time as they can demonstrate their ability to blow, on a breathalyzer, below the established legal limit of .08.Â” Barnes added, Â“Since 9/11, FAA standards are pretty strict in not allowing anyone that could pose a danger access to aircraft. People under the in uence of alcohol or drugs constitute such a threat. It causes people to behave in a manner that is unpredictable. Because airlines have a zero tolerance, so does KPD.Â” Davis said that thereÂ’s a reason behind the rules. Â“Abrupt altitude changes present unique physiological body changes, and drugs, stimulants and depressants affect people differently where the air is less dense than at surface level,Â” he explained. Â“Personnel who are impaired at times become belligerent or perhaps euphoric, become communicative or non-communicative and may at times bother others on the ight.Â” Passengers under the in uence of alcohol or drugs may not only be annoying, but could complicate things in an emergency. Â“If they [the passengers] are too impaired, they may not be able to handle themselves in an emergency situation and, therefore, become reliant on others on that ight whose primary concern should be themselves,Â” Davis added. Â“If they have overindulged in alcohol and the effects at altitude are exacerbated, they might vomit or convulse and require medical attention not available on the ight. They are also an unwelcome distraction to others who have paid for a seat on that ight.Â” Davis said that, like the police, his staff keeps its eyes open for problems. They look for Â“appearanceÂ—are they cleanly dressed, eyes focused, do not smell like a liquor closet. MannerÂ—talk normally, present their baggage and tickets normally, can answer the agentÂ’s questions coherently and can generally and reasonably handle their own affairs. If they are belligerent and stumble in their speech or require some one else to aid or handle normal in-processing transactions, this could be an indicator of incapacity. In positions of public trust, such as airline operations where your actions, or potentially your inactions, can affect others, we have the right and responsibility to refuse ight service based on demonstrated ability. The individual who is refused service will be rebooked, and possibly charged a rescheduling fee, at a later time when their incapacity has diminished or attendance by medical authority has been coordinated and approved.Â” Jeff Halliday, Kwajalein Range Services legal counselor, advised, Â“Although you may feel like celebrating when itÂ’s time to travel off Kwajalein, donÂ’t overdo it! Federal aviation regulations prohibit the airlines from allowing a person who appears to be intoxicated or under the in uence of drugs, except a medical patient under proper care, to board an aircraft. Kwajalein Airport Operations has sometimes had to turn people away at the gate. The passenger is then responsible for any extra fees or charges for changing the ight. They may also miss connections and reservations at their destination. And, of course, there may not be room on the next ight out. ItÂ’s not worth the hassle.Â” Unless there are obvious indicators, or it is believed the individual may harm themselves, ight personnel or others, they will otherwise be boarded, according to Davis. Â“Once a decision is made to not board an individual or group, it will not be subject to being overridden by security or medical authority. A passed breathalyzer does not constitute authority to board a ight, and general observations by reasonable agents or airport personal is the only authority necessary to deny boarding. A commotion in ight is a federal offense and it is better to ere on the ground rather than at 30,000 feet. If you enter the United States intoxicated, you also risk being detained, questioned and perhaps held. Your airport operations staff is here to safely protect the ying public and takes that responsibility very seriously. If you intend to y, please donÂ’t drink alcohol or take unprescribed drugs before boarding or while ying,Â” Davis said.
Wednesday, March 28, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Nell DrumhellerEditorIt was a mix of young and old with a couple of things in common. They were all wearing helmets and were padded in the places that might get bumped or bruised. On Saturday evening the islandÂ’s skaters gathered for Shred Fest, an event planned to teach young people how to properly use the skate park, teach them about safety and have some fun. Â“I came up with the idea of Shred Fest after constantly seeing kids use the park in the wrong manner. I decided rather than closing the park down for an extended period of time, maybe we can hold an event to get the kids to develop a vested interest in the park,Â” said Mandie Morris, Kwajalein Range Services Pools and Beaches coordinator. MorrisÂ’ responsibilities include the skate park. She said she targeted the K through12th-grade age range, but some of the folks at the park Saturday night looked a bit older than that.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 28, 2007 5 Â“Skating is becoming a very popular recreational activity,Â” Morris said. Â“We are seeing a huge in ux of new skaters here on Kwaj. Each night there are at least 5-10 skaters down at the park, and the usage has gone up with the announcement of Shred Fest.Â” There were youngsters learning the basics with teens and adults helping them stay upright as well as showing them some more sophisticated moves. Recently there has been a rash of vandalism at the park. Morris hoped this event will help users learn the proper etiquette for using the facility as well as realize how much fun they can have there Â“The chief concern is that people are not using the park properly,Â” Morris said. Â“I see kids in there, with no skate gear, running up and down the ramps and using them for slides. We have had problems with graf ti. We have also had problems with littering and destruction of park is for.Â” bounce off of so, of course, safety is an issue. Â“The main safety concern at the park is skaters not wearing the required safety equipmentÂ—helmet, elbow pads, knee pads, and wrist guards. No one should be inside that fence without all of their required equipment on, period. Everyone needs to know they are in violation of the skate park rules if they enter the park without every single piece of equipment on.Â” Morris suggests that community members help keep an eye on the young people who use the park. Â“If someone sees something going on in the skate park that looks unsafe, they should call KPD [Kwajalein Police Department]. KPD patrols the park as part of the island patrol duties. The park is also patrolled by members of Community Activates and ES&H [Environmental, Safety and Health]. There will be consequences if someone is caught violating skate park rules.Â”Morris hopes to have another skate park event by the end of the summer. She added that this event would not have been a success without help. Â“I would like to say a big thanks to everyone who helped with Shred Fest. I feel the event was a big success and even though we were rained on, I think everyone had a great time. I would like to say a special thanks to Denise Dorn for use of Hobby Shop materials to cover up the graf ti, Kim Parker for music and the sound system, Mary Stone and the CA guys for the tent, tables, and chairs, Scott Roden for help with the event set-up, and Torrey Landers. I would also like to thank our skating volunteers Miguel Busquets, Chad McGlinn, Sean Davenport, Wardell Harless, all the high school volunteers, and Brandon Price. Finally, I would like to say a big thanks to Mark Â“ShaggyÂ” Kickhofel for his all his efforts in planning this event with me and helping the kids. If it had not been for his vision and enthusiasm, Shred Fest would not have been such a huge success. Kommol tata to all of you,Â” Morris said. Chad McGlinn helps Iley Kickhofel, 7, learn how to use the ramps at the Skate Park. Raul Herrera, 16, talking, was one of the high school age students who helped younger children learn about skate boarding. Danielle Junker, 9, was game to learn even though she took a few tumbles at Saturday's Shred Fest.
Wednesday, March 28, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Explosives disposal completed on Illeginni ThursdayUp in smoke By Nell DrumhellerEditorThe Kwajalein Range Services Explosive Ordnance Disposal team boated to Illegini Thursday and destroyed more than 24 pounds of found ordnance including a white phosphorous marker found on the oceanside of Kwajalein last June. Explosive disposal is completed twice a year, or when the storage bunkers are lled, according to William Durning, an EOD technician and team leader. Â“Unexploded ordnance is found all over Kwajalein Atoll,Â” Durning said. Â“The day before the Illegini trip, a fragmentation hand grenade was found on Ebeye.Â” He added that EOD performs reef sweeps typically twice a month. Â“We search out explosives,Â” he said. Â“We nd a lot of everything. A lot of small arms, bullets, hand grenades, sixteen rounds.Â” He added that there is a 16-inch round off of the south point of Kwajalein. The UXO is transported to Illegini where itÂ’s put in a pit and detonated with Composition C-4, a military plastic explosive. The C-4 is safe for handling, at least by an expert. Â“It puts a lot of horsepower, a lot of kick, into whatever youÂ’re trying to get rid of,Â” Durning said. Â“Heat, shock and friction are the only way to make it explode,Â” he explained. Â“As long as youÂ’re not mishandling it, it is safe.Â” This island was once a war zone, and there is numerous UXO still on the ground and in the water. Â“It is 64 years later, but the ordnances are still dangerous,Â” he said. Â“If you see something you canÂ’t identify, remember the three Rs,Â” Durning said. Recognize, retreat (to 300 feet) and report the unidenti ed item to the Kwajalein Police Department. It will notify EOD, who will respond. Â“We have two kinds of call outs,Â” Durning said. They investigate UXO and suspect packages. The biggest UXO theyÂ’ve found is the 16-inch round at the south end of Kwajalein. Â“ItÂ’s about 3,000 pounds and weighs as much as a VW,Â” Durning said. Personnel from Kwajalein Police Marine, Kwajalein Fire, KRS Marine and KRS Environmental and Safety Departments participated in ThursdayÂ’s demolition operation. A smoking metal object was spotted on the reef in June. Kwajalein Police Department responded and established a cordon from 7th and Ocean to 5th and Ocean, stopping all vehicular and pedestrian traf c while Floyd Corder III from Kwajalein Range Services Explosive Ordnance Disposal gathered and transported the device. The device was destroyed Thursday in the demolition operations on Illegini.

Only the 4th, 5th, and 6th grades were involved in this event, with eight children from each grade participating. The top three spellers were presented with trophies, and all the children received certi cates of participation. The top three spellers per grade are: 4th Grade: 1stÂ—Alex Weatherford 2ndÂ—DeeDee Pippitt 3rdÂ—Bryce Batson 5th Grade: 1stÂ—John Sholar 2ndÂ—Angela Kendrick 3rdÂ—Maddie Greene 6th Grade: 1stÂ—Michael Pedro 2ndÂ—Malkie Loeak 3rdÂ—Jamie Simpson The volunteer moderators/ judges were: 4th GradeÂ—Cassie Rubly and Jane Christy 5th GradeÂ—Deanna Cain and Masina McCollum 6th GradeÂ—Deb Johnson and Diane Hamillto visit the town. Starting at 2:30 p.m., multiple warnings were called into the local TV station and police telling them there was a car bomb in the market square. The warnings were deliberately confusing, and as a result, the police herded people to an area they thought was away from the bomb, but instead pushed them to it. The bomb exploded at 3:10 p.m. and killed 29 people and severely wounded 220 more. Among the dead and wounded were the Spanish tourists, a young woman pregnant with twins, Catholics, Protestants and children of both sides. Even in a land used to violence and death, the bombing was shocking. It had been carried out by a renegade group of the IRA opposed to any peace with the British. Both sides of the con ict were grief-stricken over the incident, and all through the country, people began to say, Â“Enough.Â” The IRA, the Protestant government and the British all came to the same conclusionÂ—the ghting had to stop. What happened in Omagh nally started real negotiations for peace in Northern Ireland. It didnÂ’t happen overnight and in fact took years, but the IRA nally disarmed, denounced violence and pledged to join in nding a political solution. This past week, after 10 tough years of negotiations, setbacks and deadlocks, the leaders of the two major Protestant and Catholic political parties who had fought as deadly enemies, reached an historic deal for a power-sharing government in Northern Ireland to begin on May 8. They said that out of the horrors of the past would come a better future for their children. One can only hope that these men and the people of Northern Ireland have decided to love their children more than they hate each other, and this will be the peace the long-suffering country has prayed for. Maybe God does work in mysterious ways after all. WouldnÂ’t it be ironic if an act of terrible violence that was supposed to destroy any hope of peace was instead responsible for attaining it?
