Friday, May 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3Accredidation topic at last SAC meeting of yearBy Donna Miles American Forces Press ServiceDefense and Veterans Affairs of cials are ironing out details of programs that will expand bene ts provided through Servicemembers’ Group Life Insurance. The $82 billion supplemental legislation signed into law by President George W. Bush May 11 increases maximum SGLI coverage to $400,000 and provides payouts of up to $100,000 for servicemembers with traumatic injuries, explained Stephen Wurtz, the VA’s deputy assistant director for insurance. The increased SGLI coverage will take effect Sept. 1, and the so-called “traumatic SGLI” bene t, December 1. Wurtz said the legislation directs that both bene ts will be retroactive to Oct. 7, 2001. Traumatic SGLI bene ts will be retroactive for troops who have lost limbs, eyesight or speech or received other traumatic injuries as a direct results of injuries received during Operation Iraqi Freedom or Operation Enduring Freedom. Servicemembers enrolled in the SGLI program will notice an increase in their premiums when the increases take effect. The traumatic SGLI bene t will be rolled into the basic SGLI program and will likely cost about $1 a month, Wurtz said. Because the rates have not changed servicemembers who retain $250,000 or less coverage will see no increase in their premiums, Wurtz said, except for the $1 “traumatic SGLI” VA announces retroactive insurance changes See INSURANCE, Page 16By Mig Owens Assistant editor The School Advisory Council Wednesday approved a draft Pro le and FiveYear School Improvement Plan that outlines the path ahead for accreditation of Kwajalein Schools. According to John Beckler, teacher spokesperson, the plan will be submitted to the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement as a nal document by June 10. At the elementary level, the plan aims to improve reading comprehension through several interventions. Among them is the introduction of classroom read-aloud sessions to be logged by teachers. According to Sonya Sava, steering committee member, another intervention is use of the Scholastic Reading Counts program, purchased with the help of the elementary school PTO. The program will serve as the focus of the reading laboratory, which will offer computer-based learning in a dedicated classroom. All-day kindergarten, a topic on which a decision is pending, is the last of the elementary-level interventions outlined in the plan. When asked for a status on the topic, Dan Frazier, superintendent, said “We’re not ready for an of cial announcement, but feel optimistic about it.” Frazier said he hopes that an announcement can be made before the end of this school year. At the high school, the five-year improvement plan calls for increased online research options and more direct instruction on how to search online in both databases and on the Internet. Teachers also will adopt a process model for solving information problems called The Big Six, which can be adapted to any subject. “It is a process that takes the children from de ning the task all the way to evaluating the process,” Lynn Booth, steering committee member, said. “The reason we’re going to be using this across the curriculum is that it can be adapted to any subject and so that we’re all using the same language and we’re reinforcing it in all the classes.” Attendee Keith Peacock asked about the accreditation process. Frazier responded that once materials are submitted, a visiting team comes for veri cation purposes. “If failed, we’d receive a second warning,” Frazier said. “There are no guarantees…but I give all assurances that this will be taken care of.” Also announced at the meeting were results of the Guest Student program, in which ve Marshallese students from Ebeye and two alternates were selected to enter Kindergarten at George Seitz Elementary next school year. Frazier anticipates that, combined with those students already registered, approximately 13 to 14 Kindergarteners are expected in each of the two sections. Durng the Superintendent’s Report portion of the meeting, Frazier read a statement announcing that his contract has been extended and expressed appreciation for support offered to himself and his family. “I appreciate working here with all of you and I will continue to work hard and make this a better school for all our children,” he said. He apologized for any miscommunications in this matter.In other business The Iowa Test of Basic Skills was administered April 29 and 30. Results should be available in a month, according to Frazier. Attendee Wendy Peacock asked if testing in the April timeframe would continue, instead of in February as it had been historically. Frazier said that this year’s testing was delayed due to problems in getting the tests and that his preference was to continue testing in the February timeframe for more consistent results from year to year. Cheri Malloy, elementary school PTO president, announced that 50 percent of book fair pro ts are allocated toward rounding out volumes in the school library. She also announced that the organization’s newly elected of cers for the elementary PTO: Bonnie Compton, president, Wendi Gray, vice president, Kathleen Kautz, treasurer and Michele Cheatham, secretary. The last meeting of the school year is scheduled for Wednesday. According to Steve Howell, high school principal, a picnic is planned for the last day of school for seniors, which is May 28, and graduation will take place June 3. The last day of school for all students is June 9, and June 10 is the last day for teachers. Report cards will be in the mail by June 16, he said. Registration for the eight-week summer day camp program called Camp Adventure has begun. Children must be registered with Child and Youth Services to participate. For more information, call SchoolAge Services at 51722.

Friday, May 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Summer i s By Mig Owens Assistant editorSchool-age children spending time on island this summer won’t be met with many dull moments, thanks again to Camp Adventure. The summer day camp program starts June 14 and runs through August 6, offering kids swimming, arts and crafts, team sports, eld trips, clubs and special events. Location of the camp varies by age. Children entering rst grade will meet in the School-Age Services room to attend Kindercamp, and future second to sixth graders will spread out in the Davye Davis MultiPurpose Room for Camp Adventure. The camp runs Tuesdays through Saturdays from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Those entering seventh to twelfth grade are offered Youth Adventure, which features trips, swimming and a variety of activities, all based at the Namo Weto Youth Center from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. daily. The Youth Army summer program Adventure awaits Kwajalein youth tCenter will re-open to the rest of the teens registered with Child and Youth Services from 1 to 9 p.m., with various activities available throughout the day and evening. “Each week has a theme and the activities and games played that week are related to that theme,” Meghan McAndrew, CYS Assistant Youth Director, said. “Also, there will be planned trips to the library, pool, computer times and other eld trips around the island each week.” Eight of the following 10 themes will be selected by the Camp Adventure counselors on their arrival: Polynesian Paradise Adventure; Zooprise Party Parade; Old Glory and the American Story; Kimonos, Kites and Japanese Folk Tales; Earthday Birthday Extravaganza; All-Star Spectacular Sports Celebration; Pioneers and New Frontiers; Incredible Imagination Celebration; Pirates, Pan and Pixie Dust; and Supersonic Race through Outer Space. According to McAndrew, Camp Adventure participants in the MP Room will be broken into groups based on the grade they will be entering, and each will be assigned a Camp Adventure counselor. She explained that counselors arrive June 11 and come to the island from colleges all across the United States, adding “This year we will be having seven new counselors to bring new ideas and excitement to the program.” Cost for the program depends on the category into which each family falls, which ranges from $18 to $70 per week per child. McAndrew said that there are information sheets regarding the camp around town and are available at the Child Development Center, Building 356. “The Youth Adventure camp will be free for youth already registered with CYS. If they are not registered, there is a sign-up fee of $12 per child or $27 per family,” she said. Registration for the camp itself may be done on a weekly basis. Payment is due no later than 11:30 a.m. on the Saturday prior to that week.

Friday, May 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 s commingBy Richard C. Nugent, Environmental, Safety and Health managerSo, you are excited and getting ready for that summer vacation or are making a permanent change of station move, most probably in the United States, Australia, or another populated area. It is nice to go home or visit another area of the world. However, there are some aspects that could turn out to be not so nice. On Kwajalein, you have become used to riding bikes and generally not having to worry about road or driving hazards. Recent statistics published by the military show an increase in the number of vehicle accidents by those returning after long absences. Why is that? Unfamiliarity, loosing your edge, attempting too much, too soon are all possible reasons. To assist in reducing the chance of being involved in a vehicle accident, please consider the following: 1. When operating a vehicle for the rst time, take the time to locate all of the controls such as: windshield wipers, lights, radio, defrost, heat and air-conditioning controls. 2. Drive the vehicle on back streets or in areas without heavy traf c. 3. If driving a motorcycle, make sure you are licensed and wear a helmet, even if the law does not require one to be worn. 4. If driving in a foreign country, know the rules of the road, particularly on which side to drive. 5. Keep distractions to a minimum. If you must talk on a cell phone, pull over to a safe place, park and then hold your conversation. 6. Never drink and drive. 7. Wear your seatbelt. 8. Use a child safety seat. 9. Make sure your driving permit or license is current. 10. Be courteous and not aggressive. 11. If operating a motorcycle, be familiar with the machine or ask for a training ride or session. 12. Remember, while you can ride a bike after a number of years off of the bike, it did take a few days for you to feel comfortable. A vehicle is the same, except the consequences are much greater if you have a mishap. We all hope to have fun on our adventures off island. Don’t let an accident ruin your vacation.Know your driving rules his summerQuestions about this year’s Camp Adventure program may be directed at McAndrew at 53796. “Host Nation will also be sponsoring RMI [Republic of the Marshall Islands] children to come to each of the camps in the morning and we’re excited to be able to have them here as well,” McAndrew said. According to Anne Greene of the Host Nation of ce, “The program started out as a program for the Ebeye Guest Students who attend our school system. Over the years it has evolved quite a bit, but USAKA still supports the original premise of the program by including kids from Ebeye.” Greene said that children of CBadge workers from ve to fteen years of age may participate, and Marshallese-speaking assistants will be available to assist them. Attendance is half day, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. “[It] gives both US and RMI children a safe place to play and learn,” Greene said, adding that Kwajalein children gain the bene ts of learning another history, language and culture. Last year, 50 children of C-Badge workers participated in each of four sessions, many of whom come back year after year, according to Greene, because they enjoy the program. Registration will be taken in person at the Host Nation of ce, Building 901, Room 210. Birth certi cates and shot records are required for sign up. Registration will not be taken by phone, according to Greene. Host Nation will offer sign ups for the following four two-week sessions: Session 1 – June 14 to 25; Session 2 – June 28 to July 9; Session 3 – July 12 to 23; and Session 4 – July 26 to August 6. Children are limited to one session. Host Nation will begin registration June 1. The program starts June 14.

Friday, May 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6By Elizabeth Davie ReporterAccording to Christian Rusby, Small Boat Marina supervisor, everyone who operates a water vessel, private or rented, must have a B-boat license. In order to obtain a B-boat license you must be at least 16 and complete the proper class as well as pass a written and hands-on test. There are several other types of licenses and endorsements that can be added on top of the B-boat license to give you other permission to operate other types of vessels. In order to pull a skier, the operator of the boat must have not only a B-boat license but a ski endorsement as well. Sailing also requires a separate license. Once you have the proper licensing, there are still rules and regulations that must be followed while you are on the water. All boaters must have the proper safety equipment with them at all times. There must be at least one Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each passenger, a rst aid/safety kit and a radio. All vessels on the water are also required to have a oat plan on le before departing; oat plans must be closed on return. According to Rusby, there are a few extra rules that apply to the ski area. If a skier arrives after the boat has left the marina the skier can not swim out to the ski dock; the boat must return to the marina to pick them up. Anyone being towed is required to wear a personal otation device. Only one person can be towed at a time unless the device is rated for two people. The ski boat can not pull around the dock. According to the Kwajalein Range Service Boat Orientation Course Guide, there is a maximum and minimum number of people allowed on a boat at any given time. It states that “each boat must carry one person besides the operator, who should be capable of making distress signals in the event that anything happens to the oper ator. The ski boat, while towing a skier, must have one person in the boat besides the operator.” It goes on to say that “the ski boat passenger’s duty is to watch the skier being towed and to inform the driver when the person being towed has fallen.” The maximum number of people allowed on a boat at one time depends on the size of the boat and the amount of gear onboard. For twin-engine boats, there is a maximum of eight people allowed on at a time if there is no gear. If there is an increase in the amount of gear, the number of allowed passengers decreases. For example, if there are six air tanks only six people can be safely onboard. Single-engine boats and sailboats can have no more than six people onboard; pontoon boats may have up to 10 people. “By the end of August all existing Bboat license holders must have the Global Positioning System endorsement to rent a B-boat,” Rusby said. Classes are held weekly for the endorsement. For more information, call the Small Boat Marina at 53643.

Friday, May 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7By Nell M. Drumheller EditorMonday’s Marshallese Farmer’s Market and Trade Fair not only offered locally made handicrafts, home-grown produce and wholesale products to the Kwajalein community, but was also the end of two days of a people-to-people liaison between Kwajalein officials and Republic of the Marshallese business owners. “Everything we do from a cross-cultural perspective lowers barriers to communication and leads to better understanding. USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] is already hotly pursuing other RMI business initiatives that will be located here, but the Trade Fair will help make the notion more receptive to the Marshallese and Americans alike. Kwajalein Range Service has to notice how much demand there was for most of the items at the fair, and I am sure Business seminar may bring more RMI trade to Kwajaleinthey will recognize the opportunities presented,” said Maj. David Coffey, chief, Host Nation of ce. According to Coffey, there were about 100 vendors from several different atolls and Kosrae represented at the Trade Fair. On Sunday, about 25 RMI businessmen attended a business seminar on Kwajalein followed by a potluck dinner. Guest speakers at the business seminar included Jack Riordan, Dana Lum and Bob Bills of the KRS Human Resources Of ce as well as Paul Divinski from KRS Retail. The representatives from KRS HRO distributed job applications and explained how to access employment information on the KRS Web site. Divisinski handed out vendor application forms and told the attendees how to get into the KRS procurement system. Coffey also spoke at the seminar, explaining how to develop a business plan and submit an unsolicited business proposal to USAKA. “The Trade Fair without the business seminar or potluck is really just a social event,” Coffey said. He added that the real business of the Trade Fair occurs between the vendors and KRS Retail and HRO. “That is where connections are made and formal agreements discussed that can lead to long-term arrangements. An example is the black pearls, RMI bottled water, coconut products and other Marshallese items that are sold by KRS retail outlets. Those contacts and agreements came out of the rst Trade Fair two years ago,” Coffey added. Coffey s aid he has received positive feedback from Monday’s market. “Some people thought it [the market] was too hot and too crowded, so maybe next time we will look at using the CRC [Corlett Recreation Center], but I thought overall the event was a great success,” Coffey said. He was pleased to see that mangrove crab from Kosrae and lobster from the outer islands had been added to the product list at the market this year. A vendor from Majuro who specializes in wholesale goods said at the market that coming to Kwajalein was more than an opportunity to sell products, but a good way to introduce Marshallese businesses to this community. “I think everyone on this island appreciates a break from the routine. An event such as this is as much of a morale boost as it is a shopping opportunity,” Coffey added. He said that the intent of the Host Nation of ce is that KRS will seize on the momentum and community desire for these events and put them together on a regular basis. “Members of the community have come forward and recommended hosting another one before Christmas. Since I am leaving soon, it won’t be up to me, but I encourage the community to let KRS and USAKA know if that is what they want,” Coffey said. Sunday night’s potluck dinner was an opportunity for Kwajalein community members to meet and get to know business people from the Republic of the Marshall Islands.Photos courtesy of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nations of ceJack Riordan, Kwajalein Range Services Human Resources of ce, explains hiring practices to participants at the Sunday business seminar.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Diary of a Mad Black Woman (PG-13)Diary of a Mad Black Woman A woman has to learn how to love and trust men all over again in this comedy drama. Helen McCarter (Kimberly Elise) would seem to have it all — she’s been married for 18 years to Charles (Steve Harris), and over the course of their time together, he’s become one of Atlanta’s most successful attorneys. But despite wealth and prestige, things are not as they should be at the McCarter home, and on their anniversary, Charles drops a bombshell on Helen — he’s divorcing her for another woman. Escorted out of the house with nowhere to go, Helen moves in with her grandmother Madea (Tyler Perry), a sassy woman with no shortage of opinions and a gun that she’s not afraid to use. As Madea helps Helen get back on her feet emotionally, the divorce makes the acquaintance of Orlando (Shemar Moore), a handsome man who is obviously attracted to her. But after her experiences with Charles, Helen isn’t sure if she’s ready to trust a man again. Diary of a Mad Black Woman was adapted from the popular stage play by Tyler Perry, who also plays several roles in the film, most prominently Madea; it marked the first feature-film credit for successful music video director Darren R. Grant. Man of the House Directed by Stephen Herek, Man of the House follows hard-nosed Texas Ranger Roman Sharp (Tommy Lee Jones) in an undercover job as a cheerleading coach. Though his assignment is fairly cut-and-dried — after witnessing the murder of a federal informant, a group of cheerleaders from the University of Texas need temporary protection — he ends up forming a variety of unexpected and decidedly less simple relationships. Aside from his immersion into the struggles and triumphs of the UT cheerleading squad (Monica Keena, Kelli Garner, Christina Milian, Paula Garces, and Vanessa Ferlito), Roland finds himself dealing with a strong attraction to college professor Molly McCarther (Anne Archer). Formerly titled Cheer Up, Man of the House also features supporting performances from Brian Van Holt, Shea Whigham, and Paget Brewster. The Rich is temporarily out of service due to technical issues.The following 15 U.S. servicemembers and civilians have died in the Global War on Terrorism. Spc. Steven R.
