American newspaper representatives new York n.y., Atlanta ga., Detroit Mich. Letter to the editor says jews there first to the editor having recently returned from a visit to Israel a thought occurs to me Why no peace i saw villages where arabs and jews Are living together in peace. Another question comes to mind. Who indeed Are the interlopers in Jerusalem at the Beautiful modern Israel museum we viewed copies of the dead sea scrolls. They Date Back 4,000 years and Are written in the hebrew language the language of the jews. This is most authentic proof that jews were living in Israel 4,000 years ago the Date of the dead sea scrolls. History tells us the interlopers the conquerors were the assyrians babylonians persians greeks romans byzantines As Well As the arabs. Jews survived these invaders continuously for 4,000 years. To further cite history the arabs arrived on the scene in 636. They then divided the land into two military districts a Palestine and Jordan. Under Arab Rule arabic action and is lamination took place. Immigration of Arab tribes continued intermittently from the Arab occupation in the seventh Century until the 20th Century. However throughout Nineteen centuries of foreign Rule jewish life continued in Israel. The columnist von Hoffman attempts to dismiss this Rich history and heritage of the jewish people with a weak pen. His reasoning whether for the Sake of expediency whether pro Arab or whether influenced by a germanic background is that we Are not to look Back too far. Without looking too far Back von Hoffman should have been on this trip with me to actually see first hand 1 where the syrian army entrenched on the Golan Heights shelled israeli villages in the Jordan Valley below wiping out All who lived there a men women children and 2 he could cast his eyes Over thousands of Miles of israeli territory once desert and swamp now Green with Trees Bushes and Flowers. Also the Clever water pipelines feeding this Green Paradise in dry areas thirsting for rain. This is the result of hard working Back breaking Effort on the part of israeli jews. The people Are warm and Loving creative intelligent. True to Maslowe a characteristics of self actualized individuals they have an oceanic feeling with the Cosmos childish Delight at times and they wonder anew at each new Dawn. By contrast the Arab lands Are still desert the Arab villages peopled by poor souls grubbing for subsistence while their leaders spend petrodollars billions in the casinos and resorts of Europe and America. Von Hoffman asks us not to look Back on the Rich heritage of the jewish people. Would he ask the Blacks to deny their heritage As depicted in a roots a How cruel and insensitive without petrodollars Israel has performed miracles. The Hadassah Hospital for one where Arab vips come incognito to be made Well and who upon return to their country resume their anti Israel propaganda. Von Hoffman should tour the West Bank. There he would see How those palestinians who remained have fared. The israeli government has built Homes for them to replace their former hovels. Here they work educate their children and maintain the highest standards of living they have Ever known. In contrast the refugees receive no help from the Oil Rich arabs a from the billions paid out by american citizens the captive users of Arab Oil. Much More logic and skilled journalism is displayed by George will in his essay on the same subject. Taking a fair stance toward both sides he admonishes and respects both Peoples. Arabs must negotiate directly with Israel recognize and guarantee her statehood with All that is implied Here begin must Deal in practical terms. The situation is hopeful but tense. A High level of journalism is called for Here. S.

Jerry keen. The Long time Law officer also can to say enough Good things about the men he works with insisting that in All his years in Law enforcement a these men Are the finest and the most he has been in Law enforcement since 1965. Keen began in Manatee county As a Deputy with the Manatee county sheriffs dept., and worked there for two years. Born and raised in Manatee county keen says that All his family has lived there and his fathers Homestead is there. A i was the first of my Kin people to Ever go out of state a keen said Quot and that was to it. Keen went from Florida to Oklahoma to bring his son Home from the military. The rest of it. Keen a Quot Kin people Are Over in Hardee county the same county which saw the defeat of it. Keen in a close race for sheriff last May. Keen lost by 137 votes and decided against asking for a recount. That decision was based on what he had Learned about politics during that close contest. After that narrow loss keen made his decision to stay within familiar territory and he a pleased he is where he is today. Keen admits to being 23 years old but he is really 40, and talks freely about his feelings toward his career Choice. He is glad to be at the Englewood substation. A politics Isnit for me Quot keen says and jokingly adds a after All when you re 23 years old you have to think of the it. Jerry keen part of his plans for the future include moving his family to Englewood from where they Are currently living. His son Tom married and living in Wauchula wont be included in the move with his other son and daughter. Quot we Felt it was better not to move the rest of the family until the Middle boy was through with his senior year in High school Quot keen said. The 17-year old Rusty is involved in a . Diversified cooperative training program with his High school and it would create a problem for him to move. A so for a while i la just go Home every weekend that i can a keen said remarking that because of the schedule for him and his men his weekends done to photo by Del always fall on a saturday and sunday. When he does get time off keen likes to spend it fishing and occasionally a Hunting Turkey and Deer Down in the Glades a and he likes to go with friends from Hardee county. Quot you won t believe this a keen divulges a but i go Hunting with four deputies from Hardee it seems that in spite of the minor 137-vote loss keen is a Man who continues to Harvest his friendships in Hardee county. There a been no trouble making friends in his new location and keen believes that his new Crew has accepted him. When he replaced sgt. Gary Schroeder he saw a few changes for the schedule. One of the changes involved the Days off for the Crew which in the past did no to allow the men time to plan holidays for their families. Now however the men Are certain about their two in a Row Days off to organize their Leisure activities. A the boys can really enjoy the time with their families a and keen thinks that is important. Keen also thinks that keeping on top of crime is important and he said he gets totally involved with his Job. Involvement with his Job includes staying out with his Crew. He patrols in his car during the time he would ordinarily be behind his desk. A Rotonda is one of our problem areas breaking and entering and Petty theft happens there a lot so instead of being behind my desk i patrol there a keen said. When his Crew is taking care of their patrol Rotonda an area that is not scheduled for increased patrol is Given More coverage than it would ordinarily have. A and if the boys need me for a Back up in a not far away a keen said while standing up from his desk chair. He started for the door As he explained that while he a gone or on a Day off someone is still in charge. A Bud Lavallee is in charge when i have my Days off a keen said. He then commended Lavalle on a recent arrest of a Sarasota Man Walter Jenkins who had been caught with an Arsenal of handguns and rifles. Quot it was an easy arrest Quot keen said obviously confident of his menus ability to handle themselves in pressure situations. A this is the Best Crew of men in be Ever been with a keen said and smiled a i live As he walked out he seemed in control of the Law enforcement household although earlier he mentioned that a a it a kind of rough maintaining two households Quot and head like his family to be in Englewood too.
