Box 23, Local; or song that’s entitled I Wanna Be Like Osama, sung by an Islamic terrorist, doesn’t sound like it would be very funny. And, it’s not. It’s not just funny — it’s hilarious. I saw a news video clip of it being performed on stage and I almost fell on the oor laughing. It’s also on You Tube and has received thousands upon thousands of viewers. Where did it come from? Every August, in Edinburgh, Scotland there’s a month-long tradition called the Fringe Festival. My wife and I attended one in 1999. It was one of the most entertaining experiences of my life. Street performers were everywhere trying to lure people to go see their plays, musicals, magic, or whatever in the various theaters around town. Believe me, they don’t call it the ‘Fringe’ Festival for nothing. Some of what’s offered is really offbeat and off-the-wall. I don’t know how many of you have heard about the new play being put on at the festival this year called Jihad: The Musical It’s getting rave reviews and many who have seen it say it’s the funniest thing they ever saw. It’s billed as a ‘all-singing, all-dancing madcap romp through the world of Islamic terroism.’ It tells the tale of a hapless Afghan peasant who falls into the hands of jihadi terrorists who try to convince him to become one of them and be a suicide bomber. How could that be funny you ask? Well, some people don’t think it is and have protested the insensitivity it shows to victims of terrorism. The recent failed bombings in London and the vehicle being driven into Glascow airport has many people in England and Scotland on edge. The writer and producers of the play say those who nd it insensitive to terror victims are missing the point. They say the play is meant to mock terrorists with humor and laughter to tell them that they won’t intimidate free people or break their spirits. The British have a history of grim, ‘dry’ humor. During the Blitz and the very darkest days of World War II, Londoners who endured nightly bombings used gallows humor and morbid jokes to persevere against the horror they lived through. It was their way of ghting back. I couldn’t agree more with the people who put this play together. It’s like giving the world a chance to give a collective ‘middle digit’ to the terrorists and laugh in their faces. From the reviews I’ve read, the producers have taken great care that while mocking Islamic terrorists, they don’t mock Islam. In fact, some articles I’ve read about the musical say there are actually Muslim comedians (who would have thought there are Muslim comedians?) interested in staging their own productions of the show. As one theatergoer said, “The world’s in a bad situation so we might as well laugh and make the best of it.” But then, there was also the audience member who said he loved the show . paused a few moments, and said, “I just hope the performers don’t get killed for it.” That’s exactly the reason I think the show is so important and needs to go on and be seen by many people. If I was able to, I’d like to jump on a plane, y to Edinburgh and see that show. I’d also like to shake the hands of the writer, producers and cast and thank them for being courageous enough to remind us that even in the most trying of times, laughter is good medicine and a very cool way to ght back.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 18, 2007 3 A h o y m a t e Ahoy, mate Marine Department’s Mioba becomes second to earn Marshallese Mate II certificationAmon Mioba’s certi cation as a Marshallese Mate II allows him to ll in as mate on tugs and landing craft in Kwajalein waters. (Photo by Lee Craker)By Nell DrumhellerEditorAmon Mioba is now the second to be certi ed as a Marshallese Mate II. “This certi cation allows Marshallese to ll in as mates on the tugs and landing craft in Kwajalein Atoll waters. Amon is only the second Marshallese employee to complete this training. The program has been in place since 2000,” explained Mioba’s supervisor, Michael Turner, captain of the tug Mystic Mioba was enrolled and trained in the program for more than two years to earn the certi cation. “You must know how to steer the boats, know where you are going, what types of cargo you are carrying, know your crew, know how to deal with emergencies and know how to maintain the boats,” Mioba said. “This training program, tailored to the Marine Department’s current inventory of vessels, encompasses all aspects of being a mate on the larger vessels and captain on the LCM’s. It tests both marine knowledge and practical skills in order to ensure that trainees are competent and suited to the responsibilities that they will assume after become a Marshallese Mate II,” Turner said. Mioba is a deckhand aboard the Mystic, where he has worked for approximately three and a half years. “I hope that others will also do the training by studying hard, working hard and being more responsible and self reliant,” Mioba said. Mioba added that the program was challenging, especially “Being in the wheelhouse learning the electronics systems, and looking out for ships and debris in the water.” “The training includes both written tests and on-thejob-training. Since it is a company-based program, there is no cost to the employees,” Turner said. “The next level from this training would be a U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s License. This training provides a rm foundation should any Marshallese Mate want to try for that certi cation.” “ I h o p e t h a t o t h e r s w i l l a l s o d o t h e t r a i n i n g b y s t u d y i n g h a r d “I hope that others will also do the training by studying hard, w o r k i n g h a r d a n d b e i n g m o r e r e s p o n s i b l e a n d s e l f r e l i a n t ” working hard and being more responsible and self reliant.” — Amon Mioba


Saturday, Aug. 18, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass Island bus routes being consolidated 4 Hourglass Reports Changes are scheduled to begin for the Community bus route on Sept. 4 and for the Work and Industrial bus routes on Sept. 5. The changes are due to a Six Sigma vehicle process improvement project to increase the ef ency of vehicle usage on island by reducing reliance on administrative vehicles while still getting people where they need to go. Currently, there are three bus routes operating on island — Industrial, Work, and Community. The Industrial route begins at the airport, loops around the air eld along Ocean Road and Zeus Road by the golf course, weather station and DCCB before returning to the air terminal. The Work route runs from Dock Security Checkpoint through the housing areas and Bachelor Quarter areas to the airport to Range Command (Building 1010) and ends at the DCCB and then the route is repeated. The Community route runs from the airport to Dock Security Checkpoint through housing areas, the Bachelor Quarter areas, to Macy’s and back to the airport. It was determined in the vehicle PIP that the Industrial route was the most lightly utilized of the three routes. Due to the light usage, the Industrial route will be eliminated and consolidated into the Work Bus route beginning Sept. 5 and will follow the Work Bus route at the following times: 7:10-7:30 a.m.; 11:25-11:49 a.m.; 12:10-12:30 p.m., and 4:25-4:49 p.m. Between and after the high usage times, the bus will run an Express route from Range Command (Building 1010), to the airport to Caf Paci c. This route will run approximately every 15 minutes. The Community route will change on Sept. 4 with service beginning and ending one-half hour earlier than The Industrial route will be eliminated and consolidated into the Work Bus route. (Photo by Lee Craker) the current schedule. The new Community, Work and Express bus route maps and schedule times will be posted at bus stops, on the USAKA Intranet, the AFN Roller and in the KRS Newsline. The airport shuttle service for transporting passengers and baggage to and from the airport will remain in use. It is available during scheduled commercial flights one hour before baggage check-in and one hour after ights have departed. The shuttle service is on a first-come, rst-served basis. For shuttle service, call the following numbers: 58294, 58295, 58296 or 53341.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 18, 2007Ennubirr Children’s Christmas Committee announces final details for chili cook-off5 Ennubirr children serve up chili at last year’s cook-off.By Joe ColemanEnniburr Children’s Christmas Fund Committee PresidentThe Annual Ennubirr Children’s Christmas Fund Chili Cook-off will be held at a new venue on RoiNamur this year. The event will be 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Sept. 9, on the ‘commons’ by the Parrot Head Club. Previous chili cook-offs have been held by the swimming pool and anyone who has attended in the past knows how hot it can get with zero breeze and high humidity. The commons has lots of coconut trees for shade and there’s usually some breeze even during the doldrums. There’s also a great beach for a good cool-down. The new venue will make it easier for Kwaj residents as those arriving by plane will only need to walk across the road from the terminal to the event site. Bus transportation from Roi Marina will be available for those arriving by catamaran. Chili contest entrants will be given priority on the rst bus in order to get their crock pots to the chili contest station and plugged in to the electrical supply. Transportation to Roi-Namur will be via special ights or on the catamaran. Call Joe Coleman, 56552, for manifesting. First and last names and a telephone number will be required. Do not contact Fly-Roi or the Atoll Terminal for seat manifesting. The close-out times for the ights and the catamaran are: Special Flight #1 Kwaj to Roi 7 a.m. Special Flight #2 Kwaj to Roi 8:10 a.m. Special Flight #3 Kwaj to Roi 9:20 a.m. Reg. Sched. Flt #2 Roi to Kwaj 4:30 p.m. Special Flight #4 Roi to Kwaj 5:40 p.m. Special Flight #5 Roi to Kwaj 6:50 p.m. Catamaran Kwaj to Roi 7:30 a.m. Catamaran Roi to Kwaj 4:30 p.m. The cost round-trip per seat is $10 for visitors. Chili judges will not be charged for seating. The cost to be a chili judge is $30 which includes a chili cookoff T-shirt. Chili entrants will not pay a seat charge but must manifest seating on the catamaran. There will be a maximum of 20 chili entrants from Kwaj due to a limited number of electrical outlets for the crock pots on the catamaran. Vendors will have no seat charge and the cost per vendor booth is $30. No-shows will owe a $25 donation to the ECCF within one week after the chili cook-off. Ann Anders, Kwajalein Range Services Food Safety inspector, is working with the ECCF to ensure food safety. Anders has put an enormous amount of work into training the chili cook-off food servers and putting together a step-by-step food safety ier which will be issued to each chili contest entrant. The chili cook-off food menu will include Lannie Carroll’s famous lumpia, Robby Amador’s marinated teriyaki and char-siu grilled chicken thighs, chili dogs, hot dogs, hamburgers, cole slaw and rice. An assortment of soft drinks and water will also be available. Kerry Young, local Roi-Namur photographer and stained glass artist, has made and donated prizes for rst, second, and third place chili contest winners. He also designed the artwork for the back of this year’s chili cook-off T-shirt. The artwork on the front of the shirt features the ECCF permanent logo that was designed by Kwajalein artist, Denise Dorn. Roi Community Activities Manager Tony Stephens will serve as Master of Ceremonies. Some of the activities planned for the day are the famous pie toss and the popular dunk tank event with yearly volunteer Cowboy Galloway. Details for other festivities are still being worked out. The Annual ECCF Chili Cook-Off is the largest single event of the year for Roi-Namur, so come on out and enjoy the fun.
