LET ME BE THE FIRST TO SAY I
AM SHOCKED AND SADDENED BY THE NEWS OF THE PASSING OF SENATE PRESIDENT JOHNNY REKLAI.

HE WILL BE MISSED.. THE NATION AS A WHOLE WILL SURELY MISS HIM. HE DID A LOT FOR PALAU AND ITS PEOPLE.

A TRUE STATESMAN AND A GENTLEMAN.

MY SINCEREST CONDOLENCES TO HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS..


EMELK

Greetings folks!
sorry to bother, but there is hope now for all you PHS students out there. You can reguest your transcripts here http://embark.to/phs although the site looks to be a temporary one but it helps even their blog too. check it out!

http://palau_high_school.bravejournal.com./

With all due respect to the late Senator, his proper title is Senator. Even if he is the President of the Senate, unless within OEK proceedings, he is properly referred to as Senator, the Honorable Senator, the Highly Esteemed, etc, but not in public as President.

There is only one publicly elected official referred to as President within the Republic that is the President of the Republic.

This may seem nitpicky but it has significant implications and should be clarified, and I humbly take this opportunity to so state.

It takes away nothing from the many years of public service that the late honorable Senator Reklai gave to his constituents and to the whole Republic.

With condolences to his family,

For the first time I heard the man speak in public, during the symposium- he was more eloquent than I thought from watching him during Senate sessions on TV. But now I know now that what I saw actually represented his humble and wise side!

Our deepest condolences to his family, and may he rest in peace!

Respect ma'ase. Sorry, but a State Funeral paid for by the public for Johnny Reklai? Tell us PSB debtors about this guys business success and integrity? What b.s. Public moneys now to bury this guy? Let the former PSB board members pay the costs. Or his familys who so benefitted from us PSB losers moneys.

Ngermidal,

If you have real free time and us e your finger tip dialing Senate to verify if Senate paid for his state funeral expenses. As far as senate records showed for late president of the senate and senators who held their funeral at senate chamber in Koror. Their families paid for the expenses unless they budgeted for in the new Senate, OEK.

Late President of the senate, Hon. Johnny Reklai's daughter, Reklson son, his brother franny, joe, justin, phillip and us relatives can contribute for the expenses. We did not ask for public funds to pay the cost. FYI, the senator request the family for state funeral to be held at OEK chamber.

Yes, you can express yourself and we don't stop from doing it. You have all the rights.

Ngermidal,

Let God do the judgement now. The families are dealing with grief and suddent lose of their loved ones. Adang

Orak and Star are right. Putting differences aside is the logical thing to do. I mean, the guy is dead for pete's sake and all you do is express that sorta reaction? I understand your reasoning but still, we are moral human beings and certian behaviors are due during appropriate times. If the reverse would happen to one of your family members, would you like people talking dirt like that?

With prayers to the Family of the late Senator.

Again, with all due respect to the dead, death is not an excuse. It is sad and tragic to loved ones left behind.

Death does not protect one from recriminations resulting from actions while alive.

We all know the late Senator has some bad karma to account for. That is because of his own free actions.

We don't get to judge or scold those he wronged for their bad feelings. They also have to deal with their words and actions in the end.

For now let's treat others with the respect and dignity while we are alive so when we die our relatives don't have to suffer from the bad feelings others have about what we did before we died.

praying for the departed and the living,

please you all. let's just express our sincere condolences. mr. reklai has family, friends and relatives that are going to be hurt when reading comments like these. I mysel is the man's relative. Please let us all be peaceful and stop the negativity.

My deepest prayers and condolences to the honorable Reklai and his family and friends. The state funeral reflects his years of services to the Republic and I solute him for that.

Rest in peace Johnny!

ngermidal...you morron...pull your head out of your ass before you open your mouth to show how stupid you are. The senator is a statesman and will have his funeral ceremony done by the Palau National Governement and even pay for it 'cos it's the law. and by the way, you and your relative's tax money will pay for the funeral...HA!
now crawl back to your rock where your relatives think you're some kind of Einstein....IDIOT!!!!!!!!

My condolences for your tax dollars kiabi-none of mine are going to pay the State Funeral costs of this conniving guy but yours will.. And if the law is screwed up then change the law with retroactive application. Where the condolences for rthe families with kids having no Christmans or birthdday because of PSB crooks? YOu call PSB swindlers Statesmen then good for you and your State but not my State. But that's o.k. kiabi---we know you need a dictionary to spell "I.Q." and, with the kind of "Statesment" you like, you will soon be in no need of U.S. money since your "Statesmen" types of off to Mainland China, screwing over the Taiwan that loaned dollars to bail out the PSB mess for common Palauans. So hopefully uour kind of "Statesmen" hypocrites now whoring all of Palau and people like you to the Cineses, will bring home to you the Yuan which you can use instead of the Dollar. Or better yet, maybe you can apply in Yap for a job learning how to quarry your money from stone, and bring that to Yano for your next fishes. Statesmen? All you have is Crooks, but since you're happy with this, go live it. Hope you don't yourself end up under the quarry rocks as you sork for the Yapese money which is all your "Statesmen" will leave to idiots like you. Oooooh, the baked beans kick in, just when I think of you. Thank you.

Who said no State Funeral? Wrong.

Monday: March 12, 2007

(Pacific Magazine)

The Senate of the Seventh Olbiil Era Kelulau has officially announced that the Honorable Johnny Reklai, President of Senate. President Reklai passed away on Sunday, March 11, 2007 at the age of 58 while fishing near Ngarchelong State.

A State Funeral will be held on March 23, 2007 at the Palau National Capitol in Ngerulmud, Melekeok State.

Ngermidal. Please Just Stop. We get your point. No more negative comments. For GOODNESS sake, the guy is gone! Why didn't you voice out when he was still living. I'm sure there are more than one PSB Crooks, file a lawsuit or something against them.

First I'd like to offer my sincere condolences to the late Senator's family, especially his wife and kids of their loss. Despite my feelings about politics and politicians, especially Palauan Politics, we have to put our differences aside and give him the respect that he deserve(or not), he was a public servant and regardless if the PSB accusations were true or not he served the public and I'm sure he earned his position as a Senate President honorably. I don't have all the facts so I can't judge anybody but with all the media hoopla going on right now in terms of the defunct PSB, my question is, did the police look into it even though the cause of death has been declared accidental. Are the police just going to accept that or will they investigate it? Could it have been homicidal or suicidal. Is there a cover-up to hide a possible foul play? I'm aware of the facts in regards to how he passed but my curiosity mind wants to know. Also, a while back there was this Nancy gal who kept bringing his name up because he was so and so's father and blah blah blah and how she posed a possible threat to her people of interest because she knows a friend from NYC. Regardless, noone deserves to die and if I was his family member I'd hire PI. Or could it be the palauan proverb "ngmla mo medinges obechad" applies here. Just Curious.


I'm not going to allow my mind to even go there. It was his time to go and that's that.. my sincere consolences to his wife and his children.

Regarless of what he did or did not do, let's be respectful of his loves ones. I onced was faced with the similar ordeal and nothing eased the pain but comforting words from everyone.

To his wife" When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure."

My condolence to Sen Reklai's family, friends and all Palauns who voted him in to the Senate. He has done so much for our island and hope everyone will appreciate that and forget all the speculations about him being involved with the defunct bank. God bless all.

ngermidal....like i said
"pull your head out of your ass before you open your mouth to show how stupid you are".

I wonder how many people have died due to anxiety over their PSB loses. Not to take anything away from senator Reklai, but I know a palauan elder who had a stroke when he was told that he could no longer able to take out his money to send his son to the Philippine for medical treatment. I wish many of you could have witness the cries from all walks of life, man and woman young and old the day after PSB closed its door. One old lady visibly tired from crying said...aikal rengud a rechad a edaol el kloklel a chelid...te ngarker ar chedul belau... let us also remember those forgotten people who suffered silently for their lose...sel lobult eng wa chomil kabekel el diak loberkakel.,,,it means aikel molalm a obo moritem el chachisois.

Alii AlabamaElab,

Thank you for sharing the good words about Hon. Johnny Reklai. I believe we must HONOR him for what he contributed in taking part to building our nation.

Secondly, let us thank him for taking al the risk to invest knowledge and time and money to all corporations: WCTC, UMDA, Palau Shipping Co. except PSB.

For, PSB let us wait the truth to come out. As you have said, Tim, Devivo and Tadao nor Del. Mario Gulibert were hiding. These BS people should be ashamed for themselves. Because they were all benefited form PSB especially Mario and Tadao. They knew information from Debbie Rengiil but Mario's big loan and Tadao co-maker to his children and nieces in thousand of dollars.

They should be blamed also.

I hope you do your part investigation and report.

God Bless you.

Alii All,
Having gotten to know Senator Reklai over the years, I only ask that we all be considerate of his family and loved ones in this time of grieving. As I would ask for anyone.

His legacy will live on, both positive and negative and we are the ones to learn from it.

I knew the man to be humble, respectful, and very intelligent. Those qualities made for a good leader and he will be missed. I'm asking all of us again to let things rest for a while regarding the recent fiasco.

Let us instead post some good memories or positive impressions about this person to honor his passing. He may have done some bad things, but he did a lot of good as well.

Test

Dear all,
It has been a while since I last posted but have from time to time followed the postings.

I am currently re-reading the "Edge of Paradise" by Kluge and it brings a lot of mix feelings about things that have happened in Palau. What we have become and where we seem to be heading as a society is product of our in ability to define WHO we are and WHAT we are and WHERE are we heading to OUR own satisfaction.

There is a time for everything..there is a time to laugh, a time to cry, a time to mourn etc. We also live in a society which we have adopted a process of jurisprudence and we must decide whether we allow it work or not. If not, dismantle it and let chaos and anarchy take over.

The type of government that we have now, is the type of governemnt that WE deserve, because WE voted for it.

We can NOT order a Big Mac and eat while arguing that it does not taste like Taro. That is not only stupid it is quite ignorant.

I for one lost money at PSB, I for one did not have a loan at PSB, I for one have relatives with money at PSB.. I for one think the whole corporate PSB needs to have their day in court. I also think the whole leadership of the Republic who took public's money and invested it at PSB needs to have their day in court includeing the Pension Pland and Ministry of Finance. And if the President is invloved then him too with out apology because this is our system. Where is the SP that one that was taunted as "Good for the Republic?" Where is the attorney general?? Where is the Ministry of Justice in this whole thing? Anyway we do have a Judiciary System and I trust it will do its job in due time.

For this day, I do sincerely offer my deepest condolences to the family of Senator Johnny Reklai.

Appreciate the your comments, Mardingaol.

Paradoxically Blind

My deepest condolence to Mr. Reklai's family.

Now.....I for one do have the right to comment even if it's a negative one.

Mr. Reklai made a right move that is if he had a choice to die. Insurance will have to pay the lump sum plus "double amount" for accident as the cause of death. So, if he had a life insurance worth $2M (which I know he has) then total payout for his beneficiaries will be $4M.

So for all his relatives including me ( a very close relative too )....will enjoy his insurance and his assets...and what's left for the court to fight with????

Condolences again and prayers to PSB victims.

Hey all...thanks for all your thoughts and prayers to the late Sen. Reklai. And as for those who are gloating and having negative thoughts during this hard times i do forgive them and hope that they will find in themseleves peace and not so much hatered and anger in them. If so then be it, it will be a long and healthy hate....something that will eat you inside in life. Money is a root of all evil and if you all dwell on it then it will surely come your way to haunt you.....

regards to you all while i burry my next of kin who is so dear to me.

YOU KNOW...THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MOMENT IN MY LIFE WHEN I FELT ASHAMED TO INCLUDE MYSELF AS ONE PROUD PALAUAN...NEVER UNTIL I STARTED READING SOME OF THE BLOGS IN HERE AND AGAIN IN THIS PARTICULAR TOPIC..

A SENATOR..THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE...A MAN WHOSE DONE MORE FOR OUR ISLAND AND PEOPLE THEN MOST OF US HERE WILL EVER DO IN OUR LIFETIME AND MOST OF ALL A PALAUAN,, A FELLOW PALAUAN..PASSES AWAY AND ALL SOME OF YOU HERE CAN COME WITH IS TO DERIDE, RIDICULE AND ACCUSE HIM AND HIS LIFE BECAUSE HE ALLEGEDLY
WAS INVOLVED IN THE FAILURE OF PSB.

WITH OUT ANY PROOF YOU ASSUME HE WAS SOME HOW INVOLVED AND FREELY SPEAK OF HIM AS IF HE WAS A COMMON CRIMINAL..

ALL YOU SEEM TO CARE ABOUT IS HOW YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW LOST SOME MONEY..GRANTED THE MONEY YOU LOST MAYBE A LIFE SAVINGS...IT IS STILL MONEY AND IS REPLACABLE.. UNLIKE THE LIFE OF SENATOR JOHNNY REKLAI.

IS THAT THE EXTENT OF OUR CIVILITY AS PALAUANS TO EACH OTHER? THAT'S AS FAR AS WE CAN SEE A MAN WHO SPENT MORE THEN HALF HIS LIFE IN CIVIL SERVICE?

PLEASE PEOPLE...A MAN, ONE OF OUR OWN PASSED AWAY..PUT YOUR PETTY SOULS IN CHECK
AND GIVE SOME RESPECT TO
YOUR FELLOW MAN...

THANK YOU

Thanks Emelek,

I second the motion!

First, I would like to express and extend my sincere and heartfelt sympathies and condolences to the family and relatives of Senator Johnny Reklai, most especially to his wife, Loretta W. Reklai, his brothers Franny, Joe, Justine, Paul and Phillip, and his sisters. I am deeply saddened for your great loss.

Second, I would like to say that the untimely passing away of Senator Johnny Reklai is a profound loss to the Republic. Senator Reklai served the Republic with honor, dignity and wisdom. The man was elected to all seven congreses, including the First Constitutional Convention. That speaks valume.

After the news of his untimely pasing, I have read comments on this blog about Senator Johnny Reklai. Some of them almost brought tears to my eyes, but I am okay with that as people have the right to voice their concerns and opinions. These rights and liberties are guaranteed and even protected by our Constitution, which is the Supreme Law of the Land. Ironically, Senator Johnny Reklai helped craft that very document, which guaranteed the people of Palau, the very right to speak their minds. Some of those who have posted these negative comments about Senator Reklai were not even around then, I might add.

As I read these negative and irresponsible comments, I cannot help, but to conclude that they stemmed out, perhaps from young, impatient and troubled hearts that only time, maturity and especially proper Palauan values (experience and wisdom, for short) can nurture. Of course, some may look and appear old and matured on the outside, but deep inside, they are infants, who too need loving care, nurturing and the old Palauan family values.

Senator Johnny Reklai may have had shortcomings and faults, just like everyone else, but deep inside, he was a decent, loving and caring human being. I know this as I was fortunate enough to know and call Johnny a friend.

I don't know anything or enough about the PSB, except what had been reported by the media, therefore I am not even qualified to discuss it here. Besides, this is not the time nor the palce to discuss Senator Reklai's involvement with PSB. This is the time for mourning, where we come together as a nation to pay our final respect to a fallen national hero. (Ngarngi a tekoi er Belau el kmo a kodall a mesumech a rokui el tekoi e oldak reng.) So let's come together and show that important Palauan value.

Sulang and may Senator Reklai rest in peace. May God bless the Reklai family and the people of the Republic of Palau.

we will miss Johnny Reklai.

Dear Palauans:

Humble, wise, successful, generous and always positive, the late Senate President Johnny’s unexpected death saddened us all who knew or worked for him. Mr. Reklai showed us his wisdom and insight in politics. He also displayed his shrewd business acumen early in his adult life as evidenced through successful business ventures throughout Palau. Unlike his fellow politicians, he was reserved and quite. He was a man of few words. He was practical, and he succinctly expressed solutions to political problems. He only said something if he was asked by his colleagues for his observations and opinions. A great consensus builder, he allowed his political associates to say what they wanted and then he would be the last to offer his thoughts.

He never boasted about his success in business or politics. He smiled when he heard funny comments, but he never ridiculed irrelevant, impractical statements made by others regarding politics. He did not make negative statements against his political opponents or anybody espousing different views. Nor did he evince his personal emotions or feelings. He was very cautious and careful when saying what he stood for and what he believed in.

He was very generous with his heart as well as his financial support to men’s and women’s organizations in Palau He was active in political affairs of the republic in which he served admirably as an OEK delegate representing the state of Ngerchelong and later as one of the nine senators elected nationally.

Mr. Reklai will be missed by all of us as we journey into the future. He witnessed our country’s road to independence, helped resolve past difficult problems, contributed to our economic and political progress, and envisioned a wonderful nation for us all. He was a patriot in every sense of the word!

While growing up in the 70s, I heard Reklai’s name numerous times as one of the young successful entrepreneurs in Micronesia. I did not know him, and so I wanted to know a little bit more about him.

Luckily, the first time I saw him when he was playing for the Ngerchelong Blue Shark baseball team in the 70s. It was a perfect time! His first time at bat, he belted a towering home run over left-center field. I did not believe a man with great wealth could hit so well. I was totally amazed by his hitting prowess!

Fortunately, I had the opportunity to serve him and other members on the first and second Palau Task Force on the Compact of Free-Association with the United States, who advised the late President Lazarus E. Salii on actions taken to expedite the approval process of the compact and to spur economic developments for the republic.

Undoubtedly, he worked hard for all Palauans and sacrificed his time for the betterment of the young island-nation. His faith in our democratic system prevailed and his vision of an economically advanced Palau remained staunch and resolute in our volatile, tumultuous history of the late 1980s. He stood tall, eschewing all negative air permeating political minds and atmosphere at that time, and represented both Ngerchelong and Palau exceptionally well. The man possessed a beautiful mind and a gorgeous soul. Definitely a vivacious spirit! He deserved a lot for what he had done for us. Now he’s dead. Let him rest in peace!

Despite the fact that he was also from scenic Ngaraard, he chose to go fishing near beautiful Ngerchelong, where he started his major political career and the state that he dearly loved.

His choice of Ngerchelong’s bountiful fishing ground was appropriate, fortuitous and auspicious (but sad due to his untimely demise) for himself and the state—he passed away knowing he was close to his beloved home village, where he initiated some major projects that will produce results for the state economy and prosperity. Hence Ngerchelong may reach its economic potential within the foreseeable future! Reklai did his part. Good work, Mr. Reklai.

As an ordinary citizen, I would like to express my belated condolences to the late Senate President’s family. Johnny was a remarkable family man, a gentleman and a great statesman. His legacy will be with us forever. He will be surely missed by us all. So let him rest in peace!


Sincerely,

naiiro

Alii REBELUU,

For your information, Hon. Joshua Koshiba "DEAN" of the senate 7 OEK had been elected to be new President of the senate by way of 4 yes votes of 7 voted cast and sworn in by Justice of the Supreme Court.

I report and you decide....

Our Palau Constitution the Supreme law of the land, said Article IX, sec 13. "Each house of the Olbiil Era Kelulau shall elect a presiding officer by a majority of the members of that house.

MEANT: senate had 9 members and the majority is 5. Not mojority of present seating memebers i.e. 7 members and majority is 4 votes.

I stand be corrected, that senate action is un-constitutional and politicly incorrect.
It should be VOID.

No wonder Sen. Diaz said "ngdi dios eng kemam a majority ra senate."

I a
m confused when DEAN Koshiba do not protect our constitution like when he did to have CHIN stay away from senate 6th OEK. I hope he is not getting old and sinile that he can no longer lead the boys in senate.

He is not only DEAN but also framer of our constitution.

I hate to loose my long support to him for past over thirty 30 years of voting him to represent us OEK.

Sulang,

hello

well, i guess none of you knew what he did.. let me tell all of you.. late Senate President Johnny Reklai, himself a shareholder of PSB, didnt have anything to do with the loss of PSB.Tim Taunton President Pacific Savings Bank, was the one who made the most of palau suffered from the last christmas.. i know how they felt cause i suffered too. we the palauans have to stop gossip and think about your self.. sei a uchul eng diak el sebeched el ngoriakl a di katemall el rokui... kuk di mo mdasu er kau e lak di moltuub ra rechad e ng kmal mekuul. alsekum eng mla mo somiu el meruul a news e bai bom check ra philip reklai malechub e ng moses ra oludong e bai bo moreor el meruul a news ma telulchidiu.... kom mesaod a loss ra rechad e kemiu a mekerang.. i hope none of you are waisting government time writing this forums e diak moruul a ureriu.. its my first time to come and visit this site and now i know that us palauans are not only gossip through telephone and or just one of ur good time with your friends but tia mla mora internet.. yang chediul.. komerur ngdiak le bek rechad ra beluu lechad a di mla mo medengei a bora ra beluad... bai mstop e bom start el lungil el bek lechad......

THANK YOU

Hey Belau... Keep your personal-based opinion to yourself. Since when did you have the right to suppress anyone from stating what they wanted to? And FYI, you sound very outdated... You're still lingering in the past but we are not waiting on you to catch up. And another FYI... Those newspaper that you advocated are one-sided, and the scale of reach does is not enough to cover Palauans all over the world. If you do not want to see, read or hear about rumors then don't go seatching for them by any means. Bottom line is, do not come here and preach us and tell us what we ought to do. We know what we can and do and we do what we want to do. So do us all a favor and never say a D' Damn Thing... And stop with your Palauan parables as well. You sound rather stupid!!! Fool!

Oh... and Belau... With you stating that Senator Reklai had nothing to do with the PSB fraud why don't you support your information with credible datas rather than your pitiful self induced piece of opinion... Grrr...

ONE MORE THING FOR BELAU... Stop with your statements of absolutism... Someday you and the likes will be proven guilty... and until then, come up with a fabricated story but don't share it while repressing the truth... You are the epitomy of secular conservatism... if there is such...

Hello belau,
Join the rest of us if you may. You just talked about Tim Taunton here. These politicians chose to do this, and their lives are open book for anyone to read. They gave up this right... we have to be open minded because we are no different than any other countries.

Agree with Star...
