Wednesday, March 23, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassJust for thought: It was brought to my attention the other day that somebody on island found that it was “annoying that Taps is played during the Richardson Movie.” I’m thinking that Taps gives us a chance to re ect on the people that are presently dying for this country so that we can enjoy a movie at the Richardson... During a softball game recently, I and a few other “hard-cores” remained standing 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.

I just try to do what I was taught by my parents when I was a kid. Things like standing still and removing my hat when the national anthem is played or holding my hand over my heart when the ag passes by me. Standing still and facing the direction of the agpole while retreat is played and the ag is lowered, is something new to me. I know some folks think it’s “military” and since most of us are civilians, it doesn’t apply to us. I don’t always stand still for retreat if I’m in a hurry to get somewhere. So, maybe I’m the stove calling the kettle black as the saying goes. But don’t you think it’s kind of sad when Marshallese people honor our ag more than some of us do? Did you see the Thumbs Up about these people who stopped, got off their bikes and stood still while retreat was played and the ag was lowered? Imagine these Marshallese people, who owe no allegiance to the United States, showing more respect for our ag than some Americans do. I would like to shake their hands. You see, in my opinion for whatever it’s worth, retreat is not just a “military” thing. It’s simple respect for a symbol of our country. It’s not “corny” to honor our ag and those who died for it. There have been more than 1,500 American troop deaths in Iraq so far plus those who have died in Afghanistan. The Hourglass publishes some of their names in every Saturday’s issue. We have received some e-mails and gotten comments that doing so is a downer and we should quit it. I suppose it is a downer. But if putting a few names in our little paper honors these men and women in any small way, then I feel we shouldn’t stop. We will when they are all safely home. I’ve heard that some folks are upset because the playing of Taps interferes with movies at the Rich and softball games. For all the men and women who have died in all of America’s wars, popular or unpopular, for all the men and women who simply did what their country asked them to do and gave their lives, couldn’t we listen to Taps and re ect upon its meaning? Maybe play softball afterwards? Not hear as the music was being played while the umpire announced “batter-up!” The umpire did not delay the game so that others might have an opportunity to show their respect. I know most of the umpires and they are good, caring people. They may have felt peer pressure to get the game going within the timeframe allowed. Although the new speaker system is not appreciated by all, I think we should all come together out of respect for those that are dying daily and take the few seconds and show respect. One of our own Kwajalein family just received word that their family member was shot but alive in recent ghting. I’m sure none are withholding any prayers for any of our boys “over there...” — Alexander Britain


Wednesday, March 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3High school production is a hit Top, Kristine Woodburn, Michael Hillman, Clarissa Holton (sitting), Andrew Habig and Barry Childers act out a scene from the high school production of Arsenic and Old Lace Saturday in the MP Room.

Americans tend to be a slack bunch sometimes. It’s not that we don’t care. We’re busy and have lots of things on our minds. We have hard days at work, kids and spouses and bosses. We don’t really want to be reminded of war and death. We don’t like to turn on the television and see images of dead and maimed Americans. But if we don’t even want to see their names in print or on television, how can we say we support them? Take just a moment, read their names, who they were, where they were from, a little bit about them. We honor them by doing that. When we’re riding our bikes to work, playing those softball games, jogging or whatever we do on this island, we could take a moment and give a thought to what happened on this ground 60 years ago. Maybe when Taps and retreat are played. It’s just about respect. Respect from Page 2 By Brandon StevisonHourglass internEver since Eric Nelson, high school Marine Science teacher and drama instructor, arrived at Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School, he has been gathering together talented groups of students and putting on play performances with them. This year’s high school play was held Saturday and Sunday in the high school Multi-Purpose Room. If you haven’t heard of Arsenic and Old Lace it’s a comedy about a couple of old ladies who enjoy poisoning their house guests and their con ict with their homicidal nephew, along with their adopted nephew and his girlfriend. The performance on Saturday had the crowd laughing non-stop with Barry Childer’s character who thought he was Teddy Roosevelt, and Andrew Habig’s character (the adopted nephew) who kept on getting stuck in the middle of all the chaos. If you were lucky enough to attend the earlier of Sunday’s two performances, you could have stuck around to enjoy an ice cream social with the actors. The performers had been preparing for the play since September, ever since Nelson decided on what play to put on this year. Habig said, “The play wasn’t too hard to prepare for, we had plenty of time to learn our lines, and it all worked out in the end.” Indeed it did, this year’s high school performance of Arsenic and Old Lace was a huge hit.


Wednesday, March 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Quest to understand S i x t h g r a d e r s l e a r n M a r s h a l l e s e c u l t u r e Sixth graders learn Marshallese cultureQueen of Peace Elementary students do handstands during recess as Kwajalein parents, teachers and students look on. (Photo by Mig Owens)“We export our peace and love to the rest of the world.” As another component of the project, Yurovchak said students separately interviewed a high school student who lives on Gugeegue and goes to school on Kwajalein to explain life from a student and youth perspective. On Friday, the class took a eld trip to Ebeye and Gugeegue with assistance from U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nation staff, Noda Lojkar, ombudsman, and Alan Taylor, Republic of the Marshall Islands relations specialist. Stops on Ebeye included the RMI Nation Police Station, hospital, Ebeye Public Elementary School and Queen of Peace Elementary School. On Gugeegue, the students visited Queen of Peace High School. For sixth grader Julie Alves, half of her questions on education, medicine and land were answered by inclass visitors and the remainder during the eld trip. “The people here are welcoming. It was cool when the pastor welcomed us and they all clapped for us,” Alves said about the stop at Queen of Peace. “This is a cool project because I like writing, it’s fun t o come here, and I’m glad we get to do a PowerPoint presentation because I like making them.” Alves said that though she’d been on Gugeegue before, she never knew that the students going to school there were required to commute via the causeway. The busload of students experienced rst hand both the causeway’s hazards and beauty. Said sixth-grader Michael Welch of Queen of Peace school, “it’s a pretty good school, but would take a long time to get there.” For most students, including Amanda Gaare, uniforms worn by students on Ebeye and Gugeegue would not be a welcome addition to their wardrobe, though she enjoyed asking about that topic as well as others. “I interviewed May, a Marshallese girl, and asked ‘Do you like the dress code?’ ‘Is school hard or easy?’ and it was fun to be like a TV news reporter!” By Mig Owens Assistant Editor H ow well we know our neighbors has a lot to do with the amount of effort we put forth. For sixth graders at George Seitz Elementary School, the quest for knowledge about the Marshallese has introduced them in a whole new way to a fascinating people and taken them places they have never been. According to Tarah Yurovchak, sixth-grade teacher, the students are participating in the Marshallese Cultural Experience, which is a “schoolwide project where all students will experience and learn about Marshallese culture and traditions. Different grades and classes do different things.” The sixth graders’ experience, said Yurovchak, includes choosing a topic, “Life on Gugeegue and Ebeye,” writing a research paper and giving a PowerPoint Presentation to the school and community on the evening of the Marshallese Cultural Experience, May 7. As part of the project, designed to enlighten students about Marshallese culture and way of life, a distinguished panel visited the sixth-grade classes on March 12 and shared their knowledge with the class by answering a wide range of questions. Interviewees included Leiroij Segul Kabua James, queen of Ebeye, Kirong Sam, principal of Jabro School, Drile Kabu, son of James, and Jack Akeang, legal services counsel, translator of the Marshall Islands constitution and former councilman. Questions were compiled by each student based on their focus area. Among the topics were land ownership, birthrights, cost of housing, holidays, schooling and government. When asked about Ebeye’s exports, Akeang answered that there are admittedly few, but said,

(Photos by Mig Owens) S i x t h g r a d e r s l e a r n M a r s h a l l e s e c u l t u r e Gaare said. “I think [the trip] was a positive experience for everyone,” Yurovchak said. “The Marshallese residents who saw us on Ebeye and Gugeegue praised our efforts to be there to learn about Marshallese culture rst hand. It is always rewarding to watch students from both cultures nd common goals in education and life.” This is the second year Yurovchak has organized the cultural experience for the sixth-grade classes. “The students had such a great experience [last year] that the upcoming fth graders were already planning their trip for this year,” Yurovchak said. “In fact, on the rst day of school, many questions were asked by students about the sixth-grade Marshallese Experience and [they] wanted to expand it to go to Carlson, Gugeegue or Shell.” According to Lojkar, the project is important because it gets the kids interested in the Marshallese culture and gives them a better understanding of “what other cultures have and don’t have.” He suggests that students and/or community members interested in learning more visit the outer islands, which still boast a true Marshallese way of living. “I think it is a goal of most newcomers to understand and be respectful of Marshallese culture and way of life,” Yurovchak said. “Helping us to educate students here in the Kwajalein Schools is a great start to help us educate the community.”


Wednesday, March 23, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassKwajalein superintendent of schools speaks to Marshallese educators at Jabro school6 Kwajalein Schools Superintendent Dan Frazier shares his vision of the future with Marshallese teachers at Jabro private school on Ebeye. (Photo courtesy of Judy Kirtchner)By Judy Kirtchner Special to the Hourglass Meeting the challenges of the next quarter century lies not only in the hands of the youth who will inherit the future, but also with the teachers who must adequately prepare them to meet it. Speaking with students and teachers for Marshall Islands National Education Week at Jabro Private School on Ebeye, Kwajalein Schools Superintendent Dan Frazier explained how the world would likely look by the year 2025. In 2006, the desktop computer will read voice mail and e-mail aloud, Frazier said. In 2009, personal computers will connect to telephones and translate foreign language conversations. In 2019, keyboarding skills will be obsolete since personal computers will no longer have keyboards, Frazier explained. “Some of you will be working in or for companies from China or Japan, or Indonesia, because those countries are three of the six largest economies in 2025,” Frazier explained to the Jabro High School students. Jabro, established in 1982, is one of six schools serving children on the neighboring island of Ebeye. Attendance sits roughly at 350 students from pre-school through grade 12. The school is the only privately operated Ebeye school which is not af liated with a church, and runs on the tuition it collects and various grant monies, when available. “So where does education fall in all of this,” Frazier asked the students? “Fundamentally, education supports the democracy of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, helping the nation remain strong,” Frazier said. Education also helps the nation’s economy. Bringing the issue closer to home, Frazier explained to the students an education would give them the chance to earn more money to support their families. Moreover, “…earning an education gives you personal self respect,” he added, “knowing you made the most of God’s gift to you of life.” “Be willing to take risks, and never give up,” Frazier stressed. “…And don’t forget about the importance of helping other people in your career plans. Remember that the light of a candle is never diminished when it lights another candle,” Frazier explained of service careers including childand health-care workers, ministers and priests, teachers and others who serve members of their community. Jabro School Principal Kiorong Sam said she deeply appreciated the words of encouragement Frazier offered. “We seldom have this kind of educational opportunity,” she said of Frazier’s visit, “…to give us important remarks that our students need as well as our faculty. Komol Tata.”Be willing to take risks, and never give up.— Dan Frazier, Kwajalein Schools superintendent““
