Now on duty in Iraq, they are learning a lot about rebuilding as much of the war-tom country as possible. Specialist First Class Steve Ostaff (front row, kneeling, at far dght), a Tanner resident, comments, "We have the worst of the summer over with the heat and dust storms." That makes working in the desert's sand a lot easier, we editors suspect. Here are some of the Gilmer County soldiers who want to say, "Hello," to their families and fnends back home: (front row, I-r, kneeling) Sgt. Tom Egbert, SPC Sharon Youngs, SSG Pete McCune, and SFC Steve Ostaff; (second row, I-r, standing) SSG Gerry Shacldeford, Sgt. Terry Lamb, SPC John Dennison, SSG Larry Gregory, SPC Scott Hacker, SPC Billy Boone, and SPC Josh Cottrell. Other local soldiers not pictured (but also wanting to send along their greetings to Gilmer County) are as follows: Gregory Shackleford, Tim King, Zack King, Brandon Gerwig, Chades Smell, Aaron Gerwig, Brian Norman, Kevin Leady, and Tom Tanner. Because of their efforts to rebuild schools, public buildings, and infrastructure in Iraq -- a dangerous place to be under any circumstances, these soldiers of Company B, 1092 Engineering Unit nchly deserve our newspaper's "Folks Who Shine" Award for bravery, industry, intelligence, hard work and humanitarianism in the face of adversity. May God speed their safe return home!

It's like a nasty divorce: conserva- tives have managed to distance them- selves from the Clinton administra- tion physically and fiscally, but the emotional break has not yet hap- pened. Should Clark win the presidency, I fear that none of the problems we're facing on the domestic front will be resolved because of the linked in any way. He's got two things our ctu'rent GOP-led House and Senate's Of course, tim "iibex-.J m~Lia" ~ in ~~: ~1- ~v˘,r-~ag bi~,,~s towardi~i~i~ " swept this under the rag, perhaps ity as a military ~;~ ~ilii~ Athings Clinton. because Dick Cheney had said the self-described liberal, Clark seems I'll withhold complete judgment previous Sunday on "Meet the Press" that he could certainly understand why people linked Saddam Hussein and 9/11. (The President and his advisers need to visit Dick's bat cave a little more often and get him up to speed on what's cranking out of the bubble machine above ground.) Then the Dalai Lama, a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, actually said that the use of violence cannot be discounted when dealing with terrorists. I agree, but I never expected him to say that. It was kind of like hearing your grandmother swear like a sailor on the correct side of most Demo- crats on the issues. Unfortunately, he's also admitted his weakness on the side on domestic issues. The last three years have guar- anteed that, if we gain nothing else from a regime change in Washing- ton, we desperately need a leader on this front. Another unfortunate fact regarding Wesley Clark's candidacy has been mentioned already: his ties to the Ciintons. While this could-and most likely will-propel him to the Demo- cratic nomination for next November's election, I think any of Clark until we all get to know him a little better, for now, I would pre- fer a proverbial clean slate. However, I'll commit myself to stating that no matter who wins the next presidential election, anyone will be better than Bush. When I was managing an inde- pendent bookstore in the Deep South, there was one local author, Dr. Wolff, who did not like me. Mainly, this was because he was always pestering me to reorder signed editions of his self-published autobiography even though we al- ready had quite a few copies in the presidential hopeful so closely linked overstock bins. I always refused his Talk From Glenville State College to "Biilary" will not be good for this offer understandable, but still a shock to nation.
