Kemem2 COMMENTARYWhat kind of America are we willing to accept? See AMERICA, Page 12 I could care less about Don Imus and his being red. Millions of Americans listened to him, and his show made millions of dollars. Major American companies paid big bucks to advertise with him. I’m sure he has plenty of money, so I’m not worried about his welfare. Imus, like Howard Stern and others, was a ‘shock’ jock and he made his name and fortune by insulting and demeaning different races, ethnic backgrounds and women. From what I’ve read and heard, he is a world-class jerk. I never listened to Imus, but I have had the misfortune to hear a few Stern shows, and the only word to describe him in my opinion is vile. But,Stern gets paid big money for being vile. The more vile he is, the more he gets paid, I guess. Some people got angry and say Imus crossed the ‘line’ recently with just three little words. But those three words cast a glaring light on a subject that has needed light for a long time. The country I grew up in, and have spent all of my life loving and being proud of, has tragically and heartbreakingly become coarse, immoral and violent beyond what I could have ever imagined. American ‘popular’ culture is a disgrace and makes me ashamed. No wonder other countries of the world see us in such a bad light. Our ‘culture’ has ‘songs’ with lyrics that demean women as mere objects of sex and abuse. This ‘music’ tells our youth it’s okay to kill police of cers and get revenge against anyone who disrepects them or offends them in any way. It uses the foulest of racial slurs.Young men and boys are told they aren’t really men unless they father many children by many women. Violence is encouraged as the solution to all problems. And it has more listeners than Imus ever thought about. This ‘music’ is purchased and listened to by millions of Americans, mostly the young and impressionable. Radio stations play it on the public airways where any child or teen can listen to it. Music videos that totally degrade women are shown on TV. Popular games sold to children and teens are video games with graphic violence. And then we wonder why we have so many confused, angry and violent young people. Violence has become so much a part of our culture that some of our young men and women have killed each other over a pair of sneakers, a jacket, an iPod or an ‘insult’ without showing the slightest remorse. The children who do these things seem to get younger every day. And lest anyone think I’m just talking about poor ‘inner-city’ youth, I’m certainly not. Middle and upper-class youth are as much a part of this as anyone. The Columbine killers came from solid, middle-class families. The recent beatings and killing of homeless people, including setting one on re, was done by middle and upper-class teenage boys. Our TV shows and movies glorify senseless and mindless violence, drug use and demean family values and any sense of morality or personal responsibility. TV programming is lled with political commentators who spew hate at those who disagree with them. We have ‘entertainment’ like the Jerry Springer Show where people get into st ghts and scream obscenities at each other while the audience cheers and laughs. We have professional ‘wrestling’ shows where the biggest cheaters and dirtiest ghters are the fans’ favorites. And what has happened to our schools? School has always been tough on some children. Many of us faced taunts and hazing when we went to school. A lot of us still bear emotional scars from those days. Most of us wouldn’t go through high school again for a million dollars. But, it seems a thousand times worse now. To some of our children, school is an absolute horror and a place of sheer torture. Bullying and physical violence against ‘weaker’ children or those who don’t ‘ t in’ have become a major problem in our schools. Children and teens facing this abuse might be easily swayed to take out their anger and frustration with violence, especially when everything they see and hear glori es violence and makes it seem the answer to their problems and the way to ‘get even.’ I don’t profess to know how to do it, but something in our schools has to change. I know there’s no way I’d want to be a youngster going to school these days. It saddens me beyond words that Americans have seemingly accepted this state of affairs in our country. We allow our young people to be exploited by this music and the record companies who sell it to them. We allow companies to make big money by selling violent games to our children. We live in a culture of hatred and mean-spiritness, and it seems we have no courage or will to change it. Then we wonder how a tragedy like the one at Virginia Tech can happen. We’re in shocked disbelief when someone walks into a mall, a workplace or a school and starts shooting people. When such a tragedy happens, the debate over gun control starts. If guns weren’t available, this wouldn’t happen

Eric Everts at Monday’s spring craft fair. (Photo by Nell Drumheller)Security awareness day helps residents understand importance of securing personal, business dataBy Nell DrumhellereditorSecurity awareness was the name of the game at the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll’s booth at Kwajalein Art Guild’s spring craft fair Monday. “Our theme was ‘Security You Are The Critical Link’,” said Connie Crabtree, USAKA security manager. “Security crosses all areas including physical, industrial, information, personnel, information assurance and counter-intelligence.” Crabtree said the information provided at the booth helped the community understand the security awareness mission. “It helped everyone understand why we do what we do.” The audience for the security awareness message included family members on Kwajalein, “Security Awareness Day helped them better understand why discussions on what spouses do at the of ce are limited,” Crabtree explained. “Also, security at the home front is essential, from locking doors, to securing your bike to properly destroying personal information such as credit card statements and offers, bank statements and sensitive information of that type.” She added that living outside of the United States makes awareness for foreign travel essential. Crabtree chose the craft fair venue to highlight security awareness because, “The spring craft fair brings in most everyone living on Kwajalein, children and adults,” she said. “Our booth was busy the entire time. If I have to make a guess, everyone who came to the craft fair stopped by. I feel con dent that everyone took away something, whether it was watching a security video, picking up a security brochure or poster, or working a security nd-aword puzzle. All of us were available to answer questions.” There was a lively discussion of security issues when community members played Security You are the Critical Link. “It was based on the game show You are the Weakest Link,” Crabtree said. “Security questions were asked of the contestants. Everyone who participated knew the answers, but being the rst to respond by raised hand was the critical path. We now have six Security You are the Critical Link champions on Kwajalein. Small trophies were awarded to the winners to display on their desks.” Crabtree said “The event was a total success, and the turnout was great.” For most of the event, the booth was swarmed by children. Crabtree said the young people are an important target audience, “Our children are our future; what we teach them today they will carry with them for a lifetime.” Watch the roller for winners of the poster and coloring contests. “Also, security at the home front is essential, from locking doors, to securing your bike to properly destroying personal information such as credit card statements and offers, bank statements and sensitive information of that type.” — Connie Crabtree, USAKA security manager

Wednesday, April 25, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 We are family The support and sacri ce of spouses and children are vital to the morale and readiness of military members. (Photo by Nell Drumheller)Military children celebrated at luncheonBy Tamara WardcontributorSaturday’s monthly Youth Center Career Luncheon took a different twist by celebrating the Month of the Military Child, an event acknowledging children who sacri ce while their parents are serving their country in the Armed Forces. The guest speakers, who shared their experiences with Kwajalein youth as well as the experiences of their children, were Chief Warrant Officer Phyllis Mitchell and Col. Stevenson Reed, U.S Army Kwajalein Atoll commander. Both Mitchell and Reed mentioned in their extensive travels they had also served in Iraq.Mitchell shared that as a young woman about to graduate from high school, she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do. “I applied to various colleges and universities in the state of North Carolina and was accepted,” Mitchell said, “but I decided to see the world by way of the Army and get my education while I served.” See the world she did, by telling the children about assignments to France, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden, Spain, Denmark and Korea. Another true story Mitchell told, much to the children’s delight, was one about meeting President of the United States George W. Bush. “The president punched me in my arm as a goodwill gesture, and I punched him back as a goodwill gesture. I could see the Secret Service get a little nervous and move in closer.”Mitchell also shared the experiences of her son, Nick, who is now a college student. “My son, Nick, has traveled with me to all my assignments, except Iraq. Visiting those countries gave my son something that no classroom or book could, and that was experience and culture.” In conclusion, Mitchell, a Soldier of 25 years, talked about how the Army has helped her get her college degree and taught her life lessons that she can take with her when she retires.Reed started his speech by formally thanking the children for the role they play in the armed forces community. “The Month of the Military Child is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacri ces they make and challenges they overcome.” He also shared the facts that more than one million American children have at least one parent serving in the Armed Forces, and in the course of a 20-year military career, a military family averages nine moves.Personal reflections from Reed on his 24-year career included an assignment to Turkey, where his son befriended an Israeli child and his daughter traded fashion tips with her British friends. However, while some experiences were great for his children, Reed also shared some that were not so great. “My daughter moved to a new high school in her senior year,” he said. “My son, an exceptional athlete that was once looked at by Syracuse, was not recruited by any division one schools for basketball because he was not settled until his junior year. Those are the sacri ces they were asked to make.” Reed ended his speech with his de nition of the word C-H-I-L-D: C is for courage H is for honesty I is for identifying the real you L is for living life to the fullest D is for dedication “My son, Nick, has traveled with me to all my assignments, except Iraq. Visiting those countries gave my son something that no classroom or book could, and that was experience and culture.” — Chief Warrant Of cer Phyllis Mitchell

Hourglass reportsThe Ennubirr ChildrenÂ’s Christmas Fund has a new permanent logo. There were 36 logos submitted by various artists to the ECCF. On March 28, the Roi-Namur community attended a special meeting at the Roi-Namur Library to vote for the logo that everyone felt would best represent the ECCF. More than half of the votes went to the artwork submitted by Denise Dorn. DornÂ’s art logo will be used on all of cial letter correspondence, advertising and t-shirts. The ECCF would like to thank all of the artists who submitted their art. Kwajalein and Roi-Namur residents will be able to go to the Roi-Namur Web site sometime in October to view all of the artwork that was submitted and choose their favorite design for the back of a t-shirt to wear during the Christmas Holidays. The ECCF Web site is currently under construction by volunteer Katie Velez. The ECCF Committee would like to thank the Kwajalein and RoiNamur residents for their continuous help as volunteers and for their generous support.

Wednesday, April 25, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Building, dig permits required for all additions such as decks, fences to government quarters By Nell DrumhellereditorYour home is your castle. Or so the saying goes, unless you live in a structure you don’t own. Then your home is, well, someone else’s castle. All housing within U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll belongs to the U.S. Army, and any changes or additions to the property must be done in accordance with USAKA and Kwajalein Range Service directives. “KRS and Housing both want our residents to have wonderful yards and a excellent quality of life,” said Pamela Sites, KRS housing coordinator. “However, regulations must be followed. When someone is denied the building of a deck, there is a valid reason; we are not being mean. Housing encourages anyone thinking of doing a project to read the SPI 2600 before you start. This will give you all the do’s and don’ts. SPI’s, building permits and dig permits all may be obtained by coming by the Housing Of ce at Building 900.” A building permit must be obtained prior to doing any of the work. “You come by the Housing Of ce, pick up the request, ll it out, return it to the Housing Of ce who will in turn get it to the building inspectors,” Sites said. “They will look at regulations, the worksite and the paperwork. If all is in order, they return it to the Housing Of ce and we ll out the actual permit. We then contact the resident and they can pick up their permit. Also, if for any reason the request is denied, the resident will be noti ed by either the building inspector or the Housing Of ce.” The requirements on Roi-Namur are the same as on Kwajalein. The Kwajalein operations manager, logistic housing of cer, utility manager, re chief and building inspector may have a say in the speci c approval or disapproval of each request as needed. “The building inspector is the one who does the actual site inspections,” Sites said. The permits are good for 90 days. Once the project has been approved, supplies are available at the Self-Help store. There are several types of structures that are routinely approved. They are porches, decks, fencing, canopies, storage sheds and antennas, etc. While the process for approval is relatively simple, not everyone is following it. “Right now Housing is having a large rash of people building or relocating structures without prior approval. You cannot do the project and then come in and ask for permission,” she said. If an unauthorized change to government property is made, it will probably result in a waste of time and effort by the resident. “All unauthorized projects will be removed at the occupant’s expense,” Sites said. “Bamboo, cane or (reed) fences that are ‘grandfathered’ cannot be sold, traded or transferred; when the owners move or PCS that structure must be torn down. Blue tarps cannot be used as a canopy. Speci c questions can be answered in the SPI or by the building inspector,” she said. “Additions are inspected prior to any unit being assigned to an inter-island move or a new arrival,” Sites said. “Decks can only be left at a quarters if the new occupants have received a transfer of property form from the housing of ce signed by the previous occupant. If that occupant did not have a building permit then you could chance having to remove it. You can always check with the Housing Of ce to see if the previous occupant/owner was ever issued a building permit prior to making the purchase or signing the Property Transfer Form.” Attention all Kwajalein and Ebeye residents. Kwajalein Police Department will impound bikes found parked in unauthorized areas near the dock security checkpoint. Two parking areas have been designated for bikes. They are directly north of Building 518 and directly south of the tennis courts. Kwajalein Police Department bike parking notice

RTS WeatherAMERICA, from Page 2 many say. Well, maybe, maybe not. Many countries such as Switzerland, Denmark and Finland are full of gun owners, yet crimes involving guns are extremely rare. In fact, violent crime of any kind is rare in those countries. So is it guns or is it us? We shake our heads, we pray for the victims and their families and we mourn. But we don’t do anything. We don’t protest to record companies who sell ‘music’ with violent, racist and sexist lyrics. We don’t demand our lawmakers get to work making laws against violent video games. We don’t threaten boycott of the magazines, newspapers, radio and TV stations who advertise those games and play that violent, sexist music. We shop at stores that sell it. If enough of us told those stores, we wouldn’t shop there anymore unless they quit selling that kind of music and those kind of games, I’ll bet stores wouldn’t be selling it in a hurry. We are the ones who watch theTV shows and listen to radio ‘hosts’ who do the things they do and say the incendiary things they say. We are responsible for them being on the air and making the millions they get paid. We’re so quick to take God and prayer out of our schools and public life, but we allow all these terrible in uences to poison our youth. Americans have the most powerful weapon of all in the ght to salvage what’s left of our declining morals and culture. We have the power of how we spend our money. It’s said that business will sell what the market will bear. Well, our children are the market, so let’s not bear it anymore. There wouldn’t be violent, sexist music or violent video games or ‘shock’ jocks if we weren’t buying what they were selling. I remember my father walking into my room when I was young. I was playing some rock music he didn’t like. He took the record off the phonograph (remember those), broke it into pieces and said, “That’s enough of that crap.” Maybe we need some more broken records (or CDs these days) in American homes. Maybe we need some smashed video games. Maybe we need more parents to say, “That’s enough of that crap.” When a horrible crime like the one at Virginia Tech happens, it’s always easy to blame the availability of guns. And perhaps that should be talked about. But, it seems in the case of this obviously insane young man who did the shooting, there were enough failures and chances to stop him to go around. In the words of one newscaster, he put out so many ‘signs’ of trouble he might as well have been shooting off ares.Who knows what made him do what he did? Who knows why he thought that terrible violence was the answer to his perceived problems. One can’t help but think his disturbed mind was in uenced by the violent and hateful ‘get even’ culture of America these days. In any case, I think we should all spend some serious time looking in the mirror and asking ourselves what kind of America and society we are willing to accept.
