Saturday, Feb. 19, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2The Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to USAKA. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA.

At least not the one I’m married to. Marriage is supposed to be like a team. I don’t know about that but I do know as long as I say “Yes dear” and “Whatever you say, honey” things will be okay. We were shopping in Hono a few months ago. Well, I should say she was shopping and I was dragged along. She would get clothes off the racks, go try them on and ask me if I liked them. Stupid me, I told her what I really thought. She got downright huffy and said I didn’t have any taste and that she liked them. I said if she liked the clothes, she should get them. But she said no, I had ruined it for her. She has told me numerous times that she HATES to go shopping with me. I said that’s ne, I’ll stay home and watch a ballgame or stick needles in my eyes or anything that’s more fun than shopping. She says she wants my opinion on things. What that really means is she wants me to agree with whatever she says. If a woman ever asks you if you like something, always, always ask her, “Do you?” Then, whatever she says, agree with it. Even if it’s the most horrible thing you ever saw. Believe me, you’ll have a much happier life. A few days ago, a female co-worker came to work and I noticed immediately her hair had been cut. Someone else said something about it to her and she answered that she was very happy with it. I then told her that I thought it was nice too and that I had noticed it right off but I have learned to never never say anything about a woman’s change of appearance unless someone else does rst. I did that a couple of times in the past only to have the woman in question dissolve into tears and run sobbing from the room. All the other women then looked at me like I was an ax murderer. I’m pretty sharp, so it only took ve or six times for me to learn not to do that. 33 years is a long time. Even if you’re a total dolt, you have to learn something. I’ve learned saying the right things at the right times is more valuable than gold. Well, almost. So remember these words guys, “Yes dear,” “Whatever you say, honey” and “I like it if you do.” It’s the way to a peaceful life. Jest For Fun Ron Tsubamoto “Champagne on the beach with my husband, a candlelit dinner and waltzing around the living room to Patsy Cline.”

Saturday, Feb. 19, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassBy Mig Owens Assistant EditorAug. 12 will be the rst day of the next school year for students, according to the calendar adopted by the School Advisory Council Wednesday. This schedule, which was referred to as Calendar B, ends the rst semester prior to the winter break. Semester length remains the same under this schedule, but there is an earlier start to the school year. The schedule was voted in despite teacher and superintendent recommendations for Calendar C, which is similar to the calendar used for the past several years. Calendars have been available for review by the public since the Jan. 16 SAC meeting, with comments solicited through council representatives. The decision to go with Calendar B was met with strong reaction from Ellis Farris, certi ed teacher for physical education and meeting attendee. “What was the sense in offering these [calendars] to the teachers to make a decision if it’s going to be changed and the teachers’ opinions are not going to be at least considered,” Farris asked. Dan Frazier, Kwajalein Schools superintendent, responded that staff at each of the three school buildings developed the three calendars and recommended Calendar C to the council, as was the superintendent’s recommendation. He said the selection of Calendar B by the council re ected the sentiment of the council’s various constituencies. Farris said that a calendar similar to Calendar C had been in use for the past 15 years and that it was a matter of respect that the board honors the teachers’ request on this issue. He added that the constituencies spoken of weren’t even present. Maj. Jud McCrary, council chairperson, interjected saying “Everything you’ve said is false. Sorry, but you represent one population of this island.” McCrary clari ed that showing up to the SAC meeting is not a 3 Hot topics discussed at SAC meetingSchool calendar, teacher questions requirement and that individuals speak through their representatives. “It’s not just the nal decision of teachers,” he said. “I’m offended that you think I don’t care. That’s just wrong.” McCrary said that the way it works is based on the policy set by the school and that people speak through their representatives. “End of conversation. The subject is closed,” he said, offering his apologies for being upset, adding “I take it personally.” Teacher questions Another point of contention at Wednesday’s meeting involved questions compiled and submitted by teachers to Kwajalein Range Services’ Human Resources department, which, according to Cassie Rubly, teacher representative, had not yet been answered. The questions were submitted one week prior to the Jan. 19 SAC meeting and were compiled shortly after teachers received their contracts. According to the January SAC meeting minutes Rubly said at the time, “As a result of the KRS evaluative process and the new merit pay system of raises, several questions arose from the staff. A list of questions was drafted and sent to the HR of ce. We are still awaiting a response from HR.” Kevin Finn, vice president and deputy program manager for Community Services, said that responses to the teachers’ questions had been drafted four weeks ago and, because it is a written policy clari cation, the responses were sent to the parent corporation’s Human Resources department for review. “Answers will be going out,” Finn said. He said that ninety percent plus of what was in the comments was discussed verbally by himself, the KRS Human Resources manager and the superintendent prior to the last SAC meeting. In response to the status provided by Finn, Rubly said, “Why not tell us this? Why not send me an e-mail so that I can tell the teachers ‘Hey, we’re working on it’?” McCrary then stated that the topic was considered a KRS internal issue and suggested questions be directed to the deputy program manager for Community Services following the meeting. All-day kindergarten Frazier stated at the meeting, “We do not have permission to proceed with all-day kindergarten,” adding “At this point, there is nothing to report.” In a later interview, Frazier said that permission was requested in December through KRS and on to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll by himself on behalf of the council. McCrary con rmed in a later interview that a rough order of magnitude was submitted to evaluate the cost of such a move, which was determined to be adding one teacher. “Now the government is drafting a response back to KRS on that,” he said. McCrary added that the government will get back with KRS on the direction to take, adding that he hoped that would occur by the next council meeting. When asked in a later interview by what point a nal decision needs to be reached in order to implement all-day kindergarten for next school year, Frazier answered, “If we get the go-ahead, we will work very hard to get it in this year, regardless of the time. It is that important to us.” Teacher, staff recruiting Four teachers were hired at the University of Northern Iowa Overseas See School, Page 7 2005-2006 Kwajalein School Year Calendar important dates Aug. 10-11 Teacher workshop Aug. 12 Student’s rst day Oct. 8 End of rst quarter Nov. 25-26 Thanksgiving holiday Dec. 16 End of second quarter/end of rst semester March 10 End of third quarter March 11-21 Spring Break June 1 End of fourth quarter/end of second semester Complete calendars available at Bldg. 368 or via e-mail at childerl@kwajalein-school.com

It’s how you search – finding romance Kwaj style By Mig Owens Assistant EditorMost honeymooners dream of celebrating their love in a paradise-like atmosphere. Swaying palm trees, sandy beaches and clear blue waters offer the epitome of romantic settings. Such a place is right before our very eyes. Though Valentine’s Day has come and gone, love is still in the air. With a little thought and creativity, just about anyone can be a hopeless romantic. Here are a few ideas to kick-start the imagination and take advantage of our extraordinary scenery. No two sunsets are exactly the same, so nd a secluded spot like glass beach or behind Mt. Olympus, where Simone Smead, a resident of about 20 years, said “when the water is calm, it feels like you’re right on the sunset.”Though less celebrated, sunrises also offer a “wow” factor and can be both private and romantic. Smead suggests waking your sweetie and taking some coffee along to enjoy as you watch the sunrise. Imagine…no phones, computers or television. Floating in the lagoon with a tropical drink in hand and the one you love by your side can turn a lazy weekend afternoon into a dream getaway. “People often go in groups on boat trips and make a party out of it, but you could go as a couple,” Smead said. A license is required for boat rental, but the marina also offers excursions for shing, snorkeling or pleasure boating, allowing a couple to be “chauffeured.” Excursions include a lunch, water, soda and gear. The cost is $150 (for up to eight people) for a ve-hour ride and availability is Thursdays and Fridays. Les Wynne, superintendent of the Small Boat Marina, said excursions are available within the B-boat range and popular destinations include Bigej, the Prinz Eugen and Carlos. For more information, call 53643. Because of Kwajalein’s location, star gazing is spectacular from just about any point on the is-One of the most romantic things to do is enjoy a beautiful sunset over the lagoon.

Not many things are more romantic than camping overnight on a deserted island, Smead suggested. But for a simple pleasure trip, curl up with your signi cant other on one of the 15 to 20 shoreline benches or picnic tables …red and white checkered tablecloth optional. To satisfy the sweet tooth in your life, Sunrise Bakery offers a variety of specialty cakes. To order, call 53445. Dinner for two will be available starting Feb. 26 through Dining Services (formerly Food Services) as part of their new Moonrise Grille twice-monthly events. At an introductory cost of $29.95 per person, couples may elect Private Interlude dining on grille nights, reserving one of six special tables complete with matre d’, shrimp cocktail, champagne, salad service, wine with dinner, special deserts and all drinks, according to Steve Cummings, Dining Services manager. Dining Services will partner for the initial event with the Philipino and Hispanic Clubs for use of the Paci c Club facility. Cummings said future grille nights may be held at Coral Sands, Emon Beach or “wherever the community wants” using their new mobile kitchen. General attendance for Moonrise Grille nights is $12.50 per person. After Feb. 26, the regular charge for Private Interlude dining is $49.95 per person. For more information or to reserve a private table, call 53402. Still in the market for ideas? Find a private area and make it your own for an evening. Some off-thebeaten-path locations around the island, Smead said, include the old Boy Scout hut near the country club, the area left of the Coral Sands beach and behind either the family or adult pools. “You can make anyplace romantic – it’s all about the preparation,” Smead said, suggesting taking along a blanket, food and something to drink. “Explore and have fun with it.” great way to kindle romance. Life on Kwajalein can be a day at the beach, especially if you have that special someone to spend it with. (Photos by Mig Owens) Romantic excursion cruises can be arranged through Small Boat Marina. Specialty cakes can be ordered for that special someone at Sunrise Bakery.

Saturday, Feb. 19, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6First Stop evolving, not going away By Nell M. Drumheller EditorFirst Stop is a limited, company-subsidized health care program for contract employees. The First Stop clinic was established to promote wellness in the workplace. Recently, rumors have circulated Kwajalein that First Stop is on its way out. “Please put a stop to First Stop rumors,” Chief Warrant Of cer Michael Posey, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Medical evaluator asked. “First Stop processes for patients will not change in any way. Patients will present to the hospital, sign in, and be triaged for care and release,” he said in an effort to clarify. Dr. Eric Lindborg, Kwajalein Range Services chief medical of cer, explained the care provided through this program. “These are typically minor acute minor and rst aid problems that are amenable to management with over-the-counter medications. The emphasis is on a low threshold for presentation of minor problems in order to prevent progression to more serious problems and minimize time away from work.” In layman’s terms, First Stop is the place to go for headaches, nausea, aches and pains. There are some changes in the works for how patients will be seen at the hospital. Posey said, “What is changing is the dedication of a full-time physician’s assistant to this program because it is a necessary move for her professional development to work throughout the hospital. I think this could be even better for patients as they will now be triaged quicker by the rst professional available, which could be a nurse, physician’s assistant or medical doctor. We are trying to ‘tighten belts’ in the program and will always look for cost/time-saving measures.” Lindborg added, “There will be more emphasis on treatment/management on the basis of standing orders by nursing staff. Although every effort will continue to keep visits short and ef cient, there is the probability of some delays in completion of the First Stop service compared to the past.” According to the doctor, “The core goals of First Stop are unchanged. With variable practitioners providing the service, First Stop patients will more frequently encounter different professionals providing care at the time of their visit.” “I think the medical care for the community is top notch. While resources are one segment that has to be discussed in program adjustments, the main issue is community service. We want to maintain the best support possible for our community,” Posey said. He added that First Stop is a program for all workers, KRS, USAKA, etc. “Marshallese workers continue to have First Stop and have additional resources through the RMI Healthcare System,” he said. The updated First Stop program is a result of “‘Tightening up our belts’ in programs like this will help to ensure that we can maintain them in the future,” according to Posey. Posey said that the changes were “in everyone’s best interest to be nancially responsible.” Posey added, “We will continue to update the community if changes are necessary. I would request that the community not respond to rumors, but respond to facts from the appropriate sources. We all work very hard to support the community and a rumor like ‘First Stop going away,’ when it in fact it is not, takes so many hours to get rid of.”The latest First Stop adjustments have evolved from several ideas on the drawing board. “Far more radical changes in First Stop services were in the planning stages at one time. We are pleased to continue the key components of this valuable service at this time. Even so, it is important to stress that medical/dental services and staffing will continue to evolve as we address critical budget and cost/bene t issues in the future,” Lindborg said. He added that there is no change in the basic rst aid services provided at the RoiNamur dispensary. First Stop processes for patients will not change in any way. Patients will present to the hospital, sign in, and be triaged for care and release. — Chief Warrant Of cer Michael Posey, USAKA medical evaluator““There will be more emphasis on treatment/management on the basis of standing orders by nursing staff.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Suspect Zero (R), follows the disgraced FBI Agent Thomas Mackleway (Aaron Eckhart), who was transferred to the most desolate area in Oklahoma as punishment for botching a procedure which ultimately led to the release of one of the most notorious criminals on the FBI’s list. Mackleway is given an opportunity to redeem himself, however, when he is called in to investigate the strange murder of a traveling salesman. Mysteriously, the mark of a circle with a line through it is the only clue that the killer left behind. Before long, the prime suspect is identified as former agent Benjamin O’Ryan (Ben Kingsley), who is seemingly obsessed with hunting down serial killers and murdering them rather than turning them in to the proper authorities. Though Mackleway believes he knows the area where O’Ryan is living, he has no idea what he looks like — a problem that the rogue agent exploits with great success. Despite his brilliance, Mackleway finds himself caught in a psychological labyrinth of sorts, and is faced with an even greater quandary after learning that O’Ryan is looking for none other than Suspect Zero, a murderer of hundreds and the FBI’s most wanted man. The Incredibles (PG) revolves around former high-profile superhero Bob Parr (aka Mr. Incredible, voice of Craig T. Nelson), who has not-sosuccessfully settled into suburban life along with his wife and kids under the watchful eye of the Superhero Protection Program. A far cry from the “glory days” during which “supers” were a welcome addition to society, the Parrs’ living situation was brought on after a series of superhero-related lawsuits forced them into hiding. When not trying to fight small-time crime undercover with fellow former superhero Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson), Parr is muddling through the corporate world as a paunchy, emotionally unsatisfied insurance claims adjuster. His family is like any other with some notable exceptions — his daughter has the uncanny ability to become invisible and create impenetrable force fields at will; his son, Dash, can run at incredible speeds; his wife, Helen (Holly Hunter), is known in super circles as Elastigirl, one of the most respected (and pliable) superwomen of her time. Just when it looks as if things can’t get any worse for Bob, he gets a summons to show up at a remote island to receive instructions for a highly classified assignment, which he promptly accepts. Thrust back into the world of fighting crime, the Incredible family is back in familiar territory — saving the world from Syndrome, a jilted former fan of Mr. Incredible. The Foreigner (R), Michael Obolowitz Directs Steven Seagal in this action film. Seagal portrays a secret agent named Cold who is hired to transport something from France to America. As he continues his travels, he finds he can trust no one, and that many people are out to do him harm in order to secure the contents of his package.
