I brought home a horrendous cold and my wife has a lovely broken hand. We were gone for 30 days and IÂ’m glad it wasnÂ’t longer (well, maybe not.) The fun started when we boarded our ight to Rome at JFK airport in New York City. Our names were called while we were waiting at the gate and we went up to the podium to speak to the airline representative who had called us. She said the ight was overbooked and as we were thinking weÂ’d been bumped, she asked if it would be alright if we were upgraded to business class. Gee, I had to think for like a nanosecond before I said that would be ok. For those of you who have not had the good fortune (or like me, the money) to have own in business class, let me tell you itÂ’s another world. It must be a nightmare to be rich and have to travel like that all the time. I mean steak dinner, wine, plush seats that recline into a sleeping position and constant attention. How much can a person take? When we landed in Rome and taxied to the gate, the pilot came on the speaker and told everyone to stay in their seats as the Italian police were waiting to take three people on the plane into custody. When we got to the gate, not a soul moved. The door opened and Italian cops came on board with guns drawn. Two men and a woman walked down the aisle and were led away. I donÂ’t know what it was about and I donÂ’t think I want to. It didnÂ’t make me want to get on another plane anytime soon though. So anyway, there we were in Rome. The weather was great. Warm and sunny. That would have been ne except we checked the ten-day forecast before we left and packed heavy sweaters and coats because it was supposed to be rather cold. We wound up buying a new summer wardrobe from street vendors near the Vatican. We attended the newly chosen PopeÂ’s rst public audience and blessing. It was pretty intimate. Just us and 75,000 other people. It was an impressive event to be at. Being in St. PeterÂ’s square is thrilling to me. St. PeterÂ’s Basilica is magni cent. Rome is my favorite place. After four days there, we started on a tour and went all through Italy and Sicily in three weeks. Our tour guide said we covered 2,200 miles and it sure seemed like it. On the third day of the tour, my wife fell in a store and landed very hard on the marble oor. She broke her hand, although we werenÂ’t sure it was broken at the time. She went for ve days before I got her to go to a hospital. We spent a lovely evening in an Italian emergency room in Sorrento. They determined it was indeed broken and xed her up so she could travel. When we asked where we should pay, they said emergency rooms in Italy were free for everybody, even foreigners. Is Italy a great country or what? It could have been worse. The store she fell in was very expensive and if not for falling, she might have bought something. The bad part was I had to carry all the luggage. All things considered, it was a wonderful trip. We had perfect weather for the entire time we were there. Italy and Sicily are gorgeous. The ancient Roman and Greek temples, villas, palaces and fortresses we saw are awe-inspiring. We went to St. Louis afterward where we visited family. My sister-in-law (who is Jewish) asked if my wife broke her hand after being blessed by the Pope. We said yes. She said we might want to talk to her rabbi. It was freezing in St. Louis and I caught this terrible cold I have. ThatÂ’s what I get for visiting family. So here I am and ready to go back to work. Yeah, right. What I really need is a vacation. Buckminster and Friends

Wednesday, May 25, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3 Games, fun bring Kwajers togetherCamaraderie, team spirit reign for second yearSee KWAJALYMPICS, Page 4By Mig Owens Assistant editorBanners waved to the sounds of chants and cheers Saturday as Kwajalympians, in togas, tie-dye and a myriad of team colors, approached the Richardson Theater stage for the opening ceremonies of the annual business-community sporting event. Following remarks by COL Beverly Stipe, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site commander, and John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Services president, the sun broke through the clouds at the playing of the national anthems. Sgt. Solange Francis then lit the ceremonial tiki torch, of cially marking the start of this year’s games. The day-long event is designed to build fun with participation for all organizations supporting USAKA/RTS to increase teaming and communication. Now in its second year, the rules were created to emphasize teaming and strategy to achieve gold medals. Games for ‘bracketed events’ such as golf, tennis, softball, ultimate Frisbee, kickball and bocce ball were held the week leading up to Kwajalympics, with medal games taking place Saturday. Participation points went to each team with medal points awarded for rst, second and third place. The championship softball game pitted KRS Community Services against KRS Logistics I (Public Works) at Brandon Field. Teacher Tarah Yurovchak’s sixth-grade students were among the fans who lled the stands. A sea of white lled the opposing team’s stands next to which stood mascot, Sparky the Dog. According to Dan Eggers, sporting an abbreviated toga, Sparky represents the dog that got out in Laurie Mann competes in the swim relay during the Kwajalympic games held Saturday.

Wednesday, May 25, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Neither Gerry Wolf nor Alison Bush of the USAKA/ RTS team had ever played the game baggo, which combines elements of horseshoes and beanbag tossing, before Saturday. They won their rst round, enabling them to move to the next bracket. “It was beginner’s luck. There’s no strategy,” Wolf said. “I try to get the bags in the air…or do what Alison does and put them in the hole!” In an intense nal round of baggo, Danielle Molina and Harry Raymond of the Mission Operations team out-tossed Kim Parker and Kevin Ehart of Logistics I to emerge victorious in a ‘squeaker’ 21-20. Molina called the experience “great” and said there wasn’t any real pressure, just fun. Raymond, who turns 60 on Tuesday, said that he liked that the event was “something I could do in my old age.” The championship ultimate Frisbee game pitted KRS Mission Operations, aka ‘Agent Orange,’ against Community Services, aka ‘FRESH.’ Ed Hillman explained the game as akin to soccer because of the amount of running, though likened the defensive aspect of it to basketball. Of course, accurate Frisbee throwing was vital. Using a strategy that involved running as much as possible, Mission Operations took the gold with a nal score of 2-1.KWAJALYMPICS, from Page 3 Teams gather at the starting line for the early morning 1K walk Saturday cheering and showing their team spirit. the Logistics I chant, Who Let the Dogs Out The tie-dye-wearing Community Services team prevailed 4-2, taking the gold. Across Lagoon Road at Ragan Field, Dorothy Jowers, spouse and self-proclaimed “enthusiastic observer” cheered on the KRS Logistics II team, clad in blue, at a medal kickball game. “I think it’s a good day to get away from the routine, she said. “It gets people together – connects everybody. It builds team spirit within the whole group.” Gary John, one of the Republic of the Marshall Islands members of the opposing team, Community Services, believed kicking and pitching are strengths he brought to the game. “I like it…[I] get to meet a lot of people, some from other departments I never talked to before,” he said about being part of the team, which won 3-2. The day’s ‘participation events’ included a team 1K walk, water balloon toss, Wif e chipping, baggo, the talent show and bingo. Participation events were designed to gain points based on volume participating, excluding the talent show. Participation events were nonmedal events.

Wednesday, May 25, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5“FRESH dominated…Mission Ops played dirty,” laughed the Rev. Rick Funk in an after-game ‘spat’ with Hillman, who said he, in turn, noticed “some bitterness from the losing team, disheartened because of their loss.” Throughout the week and on the day of Kwajalympics, teams vied for the Team Spirit award. Judging was performed by event chairs and was based on attendance at events, use of team identi cation, sportsmanlike behavior, safety consciousness, enthusiasm and creativity. Art DeJong of the Functional team, a gold medallist in kickball, remarked that team spirit abounded. “We should do it [Kwajalympics] on a semi-annual, better yet quarterly, basis. I’ve seen a lot of people on and off the eld enjoy the heck out of themselves. It’s contagious,” DeJong said. The trash-to-treasure event was new to this year’s games. Teams were given a list of items to scavenge and asked to make something useful. Bob Butz of the Community Services team, who won the silver, said he signed up for the event because, “I knew that mostly girls would sign up for this and it gave me an opportunity to be around them.” The timed competition required creativity and teamwork. When asked what attributes he brought to his team, Butz said, “my rapier wit, sparking personality and Swiss Army knife.” The talent show featured Marshallese voices raised in song, a hula dance, magic, and “wild likatus” who threw candy into the crowd. KRS Community Services took home the bragging rights for this event. Also new this year was a sunscreen station, sponsored by the Functional team. The day’s ‘fun events’ included a co-ed 1K run, basketball hot-shot, volleyball, swimming relay, bowling, three-legged race, big splash, trashto-treasure, home run derby and quizzo. Medal points were awarded for rst, second and third place and participation points went to teach team. Randy and Mary Anne Razook of the Contractors team competed together in two-handed granny-style bowling, because Mary Anne said, “my husband was nice enough to sign me up.” The pair, wearing black, also participated in quizzo, Wif e chipping, bingo and the threelegged race. Mary Anne added that she liked that this year’s events “were more spread out and started earlier in the day.” Among the nal events of the day were the swim relays and the big splash, bringing droves of fans and participants to the adult pool. Warm-up exercises kept competitors safe and injury free for the games. See KWAJALYMPICS, Page 6

Wednesday, May 25, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 “The water felt refreshing – great event for this time of the day,” said Steve Banducci of the Mission Operations team. Banducci swam in the relay with teammate Leanne Clayton. “Our strategy was not to drown,” he said. Though the team nished, they did not advance. “No pool record this year, but we’ll be back next year to try again.”The big splash event invited participants of all sizes and skill levels to show off their best cannonballs. Guest judges included Pickler, Les Jones, deputy Garrison commander and Lt. Col. Anne Daugherty, Reagan Test Site commander. Mike Nicholson, aka “The Bug Man,” who said his last experience with cannonballs was in a Navy pool when he was a child, came in fourth. “I liked the event because everyone got to get involved. It was fun,” he said. Nicholson, a member of the Logistics I team, added that there was a sense of camaraderie throughout the day. “We got to get together with different departments and Marshallese and do things you don’t normally do unless you’re on an organized team,” he said, adding that everybody knows how to have fun out here. There are some very crazy people out here,” he said with a laugh. “I’d say team spirit slash psychologically imbalanced.” Some participants walked away from this year’s games wearing medals, while winners of the swim relay and nal bingo round took home brand-new bicycles. In the end, the Team Spirit award completely changed the outcome of Kwajalympics, according to Joey Holley, chairperson. “The nal scoring was so close that if any of the top three teams received the 300 Spirit points, they would win,” he said. Overall winner for the day was Logistics I, who took home the 300 Team Spirit points. “These guys not only showed up in togas, they wore them all day,” Holley said. “They were at every event supporting their team in ways that the event chairs recognized as being very positive and creative.” KRS Mission Operations came in second, KRS Community Services in third, KRS Functional Areas in fourth, KRS Logistics II in fth, Contractors in sixth and USAKA/RTS in seventh. The rst-place team received a trophy made and presented by Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School seniors. Jones remarked that attendance at this year’s Kwajalympics was marvelous. “This was KRS and Ike Richardson’s idea and he deserves a whole lot of thanks, as does John Pickler for carrying it on through. We had a lot of fun.” “The greatest success was seeing the different teams come together,” Krystal Peterson, event chair, said. She explained that she and the other chairpersons were tasked with making Kwajalympics “bigger and better” than last year and she believes that the goal was achieved. Peterson added that she was happy with how the different cultures were re ected in the talent show. Next time around, she said, “will build off of this year, taking the lessons learned, keeping what people liked and making the rest better.”KWAJALYMPICS from page 5 Kwajalmpics nal standings Team Gold Silver Bronze Team total medals 3 Log I (Public Works) 3 8 6 17 5 Mission Ops 9 4 2 15 2 Community 3 5 6 14 1 Functional 2 2 2 6 4 Log II 2 0 2 4 7 Contractors 1 1 2 4 6 USAKA/RTS 0 0 0 0 Team Medal points Spirit points Talent/banner Participation Total points 3 Log I (Public Works) 850 182 300 524 1,856 5 Mission Ops 1,150 144 0 376 1,670 2 Community 700 173 100 419 1,392 1 Functional 350 130 0 559 1,039 4 Log II 250 119 0 345 714 7 Contractors 200 103 0 257 560 6 USAKA/RTS 0 66 100 233 399
