My resolutions have stood the test of time and become standards. I resolve, once again, to give wholeheartedly of my time and energy to family and friends, send birthday cards and gifts out on time this year, get organized at home and work, eat healthier food, exercise regularly and write. It’s early in the month, but as of today, I can say I’ve made strides in most of these areas, even reintroducing myself to the gym, which is a stone’s throw away from my quarters. The guilt was killing me. And, the energy I gain from exercising is that much more I have to give to those I love. Once my 2005 calendar arrives (as soon as I go online and order it) and my December birthday gifts are mailed, I’m postured to meet the New Year’s birthday wish commitments. I’ve even cleared my desk both at home and work of clutter and bought some plastic containers for storage. I switched the bread my family eats to whole wheat, drink water constantly (I’m oating right now), and am determined to add more fruits and vegetables to our diet. There’s only one problem…the writing thing eludes me. Though I do it for a living, I don’t ever write to write, which is my dream. Strewn around the house are journals featuring a few heartfelt pages of what I’d like to think is “substance,” but they remain incomplete, with the empty pages outnumbering the full ones. On the bookshelf are “how to” books on writing and soul searching for tortured, or in my case, not-yet-tortured writers. Somehow, there always seems to be something more urgent or important that needs to be done than reading those books or, God forbid…writing. There is no question; my one true love is my husband and children (a package deal). Next to that, I truly love to write. In fact, I write all the time in my head. There’s nothing to show for it, but the plots are fascinating and the characters, at this point, quite well developed. Apparently, I’m the only one enjoying it. The act of putting it on paper is all that’s missing. That’s the tricky part. Kind of reminds me of writing newspaper columns. Peer pressure nally forced me to write this one. Because even this is somewhat painful for me, I’ve come to the realization that being once-removed from the topic of my writing is my comfort zone. I have no problem writing just about anything I’m assigned or comes my way. There’s no such thing as writer’s block where news or feature writing is concerned. With my own writing, however, I inevitably let life get in the way. Making dinner, doing laundry, and sleeping, in addition to the million other things that beg for my attention are time stealers. I feel fortunate to have realized what it is I’m supposed to do in life. All I need now is to just do it. Maybe that’s the problem. My resolution needs an overhaul. Making the time to write may be the key. I resolve to carve out 30 minutes a day to write whatever ows onto paper. Alright, that was dif cult, but it’s a start. If you’re reading this, I’m asking you to hold me to it. With determination, and a little peer pressure, this time next year, I’ll be able to tell you all about it. Better yet, you can read it. I walked into my wife’s office the other day to take her to lunch. She came over to me and said, “You better not do it.” My mind raced through the multitude of things I better not do and I couldn’t think of any I had done that could get me in trouble. So I con dently said whatever it was, I hadn’t done it. She asked if I had seen the recent KRS Newsline. I said no. She said that love stories were being solicited for Valentine’s Day and she didn’t want me to write any. That would be hard not to do. My life since I met her has been a love story. If there really is such a thing as love at rst sight, I fell in love the rst time I saw her. She said she felt the same way about me. (She must have had too much to drink). We met on a blind date and from that night on, we’ve never been apart except for the occasional business travel. We’ve tried to remember if I actually asked her to marry me. It seems to both of us that we just knew we were going to get married and the formality of “popping the question” wasn’t necessary. We went dancing the other night at the Yuk Club when the country band was here. Someone told me how nice it was to watch us dance because we both looked at each other with such adoration. I can’t say for sure it was adoration See Love next page

Saturday, Jan. 8, 2004 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3on her part, but it sure was on mine. We’ve been married for 33 years and I still get excited when I get home at night and see her bike parked outside. It means I’ll be seeing her and hugging her in just a few seconds. She does silly little things all the time that make me laugh. And when I tease her about them, I make her laugh. Even when she’s irritating the stew out of me, I look at her and know how incredibly lucky I am to have her. When I think of love, I think of her. She’s gentle and kind, cheerful and optomistic, even when life has dealt us harsh and terrible blows. She keeps me from getting down on life and down on myself. She’s always there with love and consolation.Love from Page 2 When I wake in the morning and it’s another day to get through, be it good or bad, I know I can do it because she’s there to go through it with me. I’ve looked at her how many times now? And each time I do, it’s just like the rst time I saw her. I fall in love all over again. But don’t worry honey, I won’t write any love stories. Renwe Batlock of the Small Engine Shop keeps the lawnmowers on island in good working order. Self Help has new 18 mowers, which are available for use by island residents.See Self Help Page 12Do-it-yourself repairs reduce service calls workers at the front desk make two reminder calls. Lawnmower reservations are taken by Self Help, but repair, delivery and pick up is performed by the Small Engine Repair Shop. Abston says lawnmowers are delivered right after lunch, but realizes at times frustration occurs when they are borrowed by requestors’ neighbors. For two months, Self Help had eight lawnmowers available for distribution, which caused problems. Now, 18 new lawnmowers have arrived, of which 12 are put into rotation, leaving several available for swap-out when needed. Other items available for check out at Self Help include garden hoses, which customers can keep for the duration of their residence here, as well as hose repair kits. Among the newer items are shower splash guards, which keep water from damaging sheetrock and oors. Also available are, pest control items, plumbing, limited electrical, painting and caulking, air conditioning lters, grass seed and plant and grass fertilizer, fasteners, nails and screws. All materials are to be used on government property. The other avenue for home repair assistance is the Service Desk, which coordinates “house calls” when specialized knowledge or expertise is required. Two dispatchers man the phones at the Service Desk daily, handling on average 50 calls a day. Some days, as many as 100 calls are received. Work coordinated through the desk entails maintenance and repair on facilities that require 40 hours or fewer of work.By Mig Owens Assistant EditorWhen the “honey do” list hangs overhead like a dark, heavy cloud, residents have two distinct resources to which they can turn; Self Help and the Service Desk. Self Help offers tools, materials and instructions to help people help themselves. The advantage of using Self Help, according to Billy Abston, preventative maintenance lead, is that, if it’s a simple x, occupants eliminate the time spent waiting for a craftsman. “Our aim is to provide occupants with the necessary means and materials to get their government quarters in a presentable state,” Abston said. He said the purpose of Self Help is to alleviate the craftsmen of simple maintenance. The most popular items are trash bags, which Abston says enable people to tie up their trash and are, in effect, a form of pest control. Paint and caulk are also popular items. Tools are available at Self Help. Non-power tools and equipment may be checked out for seven days, power tools for three days. Timely return of checked out items, such as tools is Abston’s biggest challenge. He spends ve or six hours a week following up via phone calls and e-mail, and that’s after

Anaconda: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, (PG-13), is the sequel to 1997’s tongue-in-cheek Anaconda, though none of the original cast have returned. The lm chronicles a fateful mission ordered by a pharmaceutical giant: to travel deep in to the jungles of Borneo, where a rare black orchid — one that can be used to attain immortality — has bloomed for hundreds of years, unbeknownst to man. The eager horticulturists sent have no idea that an indigenous population of bloodthirsty anacondas has been privy to the orchid’s properties for years. Alien Vs. Predator, (PG-13), follows billionaire Charles Bishop Weyland) and his team of drillers, scientists, and archaeologists, to an obscure pyramid site in Antarctica. Among the icy ruins, allegedly, lies the proof of an empire predating humankind. Once there, however, the group nds more than ancient sarcophaguses and hieroglyphics; rather, their discovery consists of dismembered human skeletons and fossilized remains of the alien creatures that appear to have violently burst out of their chests. Liquid Bridge, (R) is the boy version of Blue Crush. The coming-of-age plot is secondary to the intense sur ng action, which exudes the glory, beauty, and dangers of a life spent chasing waves. Nick is a mechanic who dreams of sur ng stardom. His father, now con ned to a wheelchair after a sur ng accident, is over protective and controlling. In an attempt to claim his independence, Nick unwittingly teams up with a corrupt drug smuggler who poses as a sur ng manager.

WHILE RECYCLING is a term generally applied to aluminum cans, glass bottles and paper, water can be recycled as well. On Kwajalein, there are two separate water systems, one for drinking water and one for reclaimed water. Drinking water is used for sinks, showers, washing machines, drinking fountains and making ice at the ice plant. Reclaimed water is for use outside buildings such as lawn watering and vehicle, boat and airplane washing. Reclaimed water is used inside buildings only for toilet flushing. Reclaimed water is from the sinks, showers, washing machines and toilets on island that has been treated at the wastewater treatment plant to remove contaminants. Before it is pumped into the non-potable water system, it is filtered and disinfected with chlorine to make it safe to use. It is NOT fit for drinking or cooking, but is safe for incidental contact. The Utilities Department monitors the quality of the reclaimed water as closely as it monitors the quality of the drinking water. MEDITATION is held weekly Thursdays, 5 p.m., at Qtrs. 215-A. This meditation is non-sectarian and people who are new at attempting meditation are welcome to attend this short weekly practice. Questions? Call Eileen, 52244.

In an emergency, the dispatchers can communicate the information immediately via the shop’s mobile radio. After regular work hours, residents must call the after-hours line, which routes to the Fire Department. Residents are asked to limit those calls to emergency situations only. Routinely, shops across the island run a report to determine what work is in the queue. Each request is assigned a number based on importance and urgency. That number designates the time in which a response is required and range from 30 minutes to 30 days. “We get work out as quickly as possible, but we don’t delegate to the shops when and where the work gets done, it’s their call,” Jean Hammond, Service Desk dispatcher, said. She said residents may call the desk and ask for a status of their request. Non-installed building equipment requires a written request, which includes a funding source and management signature. Hammond said the Service Desk is valuable when a particular expertise is needed for a x. “When you’ve exhausted all resources through Self Help, put in a service call. We’ll be happy to help,” Hammond said. “For things that need quick attention, like a geyser in the bathroom during the day, we can get someone on the radio.” Hammond suggests the use of Self Help, and, if the situation warrants, advises callers of the same. “Use Self Help as much as possible,” she said, adding that though service calls may be free of cost to residents, they are not free because of cost is associated with labor and transportation. “If I was in the states, I’d do everything I could [to x a problem] before I got my checkbook out,” Hammond said. According to representatives at both Self Help and the Service Desk, comments are welcome and helpful in measuring customer satisfaction. Comment cards are available at both locations. To let your voice be heard about the service provided by the various shops across the island that answer Service Desk calls, visit the Kwajalein Customer Satisfaction Survey at www.smdc.army.mil/kwan_ CS_survey/ Self Help from Page 3 Standings
