Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a 24 year old Soldier killed in Iraq is keeping a vigil outside President George W. Bush’s home in Texas. She has been portrayed by some conservative talk show hosts as a tool of the America-bashing far left element in the country and that she has an ‘agenda.’ Even if that’s true, and I certainly don’t know if it is, what difference does it make? She has made the ultimate sacri ce that a mother can make. She gave her only son to the United States and he lost his life serving his country. So I believe she has a moral right to question what we’re doing in Iraq and how long we’re going to stay there. But there are many mothers who have lost sons and daughters in Iraq who don’t want to hear of leaving until the ‘mission’ is completed. Otherwise, these mothers say, the sacri ces would be in vain. How many of us are torn between those two views? Every time we put the casualty list in the Saturday Hourglass I think we just have to get out of Iraq. How many more people are we going to lose? The next thing that goes through my mind is that if America pulls out, if Iraq falls into civil war and chaos, then would those who died have been lost for nothing? I think most Americans would say we need to get out of there but in the next breath would say we can’t. But the murky reasons for being there, the increasing violence and the drip, drip, drip of American deaths are taking their toll on the American people’s will to stay there. Some say that Americans are weak and can’t stand to take casualties. I don’t believe that’s true. Americans can take casualties if it’s worth the sacrifice. What Americans don’t want are needless casualties. But if we were to leave, who could look into the faces of the mothers, fathers, wives, husbands and children of those who have died and not feel shame? A lot of Americans were against this war from the very beginning, thinking it was a mistake. But none of that makes any difference now and it hasn’t since the rst American Soldier set foot in Iraq more than two years ago. What is at stake in Iraq is so huge, it’s almost beyond comprehension. To leave that country in chaos would jeopardize the stability of the whole world. So we have to stay. There is no other course of action that could be acceptable. All the sons and daughters who have died in Iraq believed in themselves and their fellow Soldiers and Marines. They believed in America. They did what their countries’ leaders asked them to do. Regardless of how Iraq turns out, they are heroes and they have shown all Americans, our friends and our enemies, what courage, honor and duty are all about. And because of that, no matter what, they will never have died in vain.For complete listings go to: http:/intranet/com/entertainment/afn_radio


Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 Former George Seitz teachertakes on assistant principal jobNew deputy in town By Mig Owens Assistant editorFor the rst time in 17 years, Teri King didn’t prepare her classroom for the start of the school year. Instead, she was sent to the of ce – as George Seitz Elementary School’s new assistant principal. Fifth-grade teacher on Kwajalein for the past four years, King stepped into her new role Friday, which she said will entail handling more of the day-today happenings at the elementary school, enabling the superintendent, to focus on superintendency duties, which involve K12 issues like the School Improvement Plan, North Central Association, from whom the schools receive accreditation, budget and staf ng, for example. “Since this is a new position, I am sure my duties will change as different needs arise. In general, however, my main responsibility will be to assist Mr. [Dan] Frazier in the daily operations at the elementary school,” she explained. “I will be responsible for things like student discipline, community liaison, teacher communication, evaluation and support, and most importantly additional support for the kids.” In addition to assuming her new title, King will be transitioning to take over duties as Community/ Adult Education Director later this fall. Prior to coming to Kwajalein, King taught fth and sixth grade in Iowa City, Iowa, for 13 years. She has a bachelor of arts in Elementary/ Middle School Education and an master of arts in Mathematics from the University of Northern Iowa, as well as an master of arts in Elementary Administration from the University of Iowa. In addition to her elementary teaching duties in Iowa City, she was an instructor of mathematics at the University of Iowa at the Belin/Blank International Center for Gifted Education. The assistant principal position arose as part of a proposal King wrote that suggested some reallocation of staff to create an administrative position at the elementary level to help create an administrator/ teacher/student ratio more in line with that which is currently in place at the secondary level, she said. “With our steady increase in population at the elementary school, and increased demands on the school, I felt it was nearly impossible for any one person to adequately handle duties as district superintendent, while at the same time serve as full-time elementary principal,” King said. With the increased popularity of distance learning, especially in a community such as Kwajalein, many universities require that test proctors have a master’s degree. King explained that this position would most likely be lled by a person which such credentials, and therefore not limit the range of distance education programs available to our community. “I took this proposal rst to Mr. Frazier, and then to Mr. [Kevin] Finn. Both listened with very open minds, and I was thrilled to nd out that they felt my ideas were aligned with the vision that KRS [Kwajalein Range Services] and Mr. Frazier had for our school.” King said that she has always wanted to move into administration, but has had a hard time pulling herself away from the classroom. “This seems like the perfect opportunity for me, since it means working with a group of very talented teachers, whom I know both personally and professionally, and who support my philosophy of administration and are welcoming the opportunity for additional upp ort in t h eir own a ssrooms…It is ver y m portant to me t h at parts, stu d ents an d teac h s consi d er me a pp roac h l e so I k now t h e y wi ll m e to me i f a pro bl em i ses ,” s h e sai d “ I am a ry hard worker and welm e new c h a ll en g es, b ut h in k m y b est qua l it y is y genuine l ove o f c h i l e n an d l earning.

Also new was a turning maze and a car-door obstacle, where an of cer opened a vehicle driver’s side door and stepped out as the bicyclists’ approached, a situation which could just as easily happen on island as in the “real world” Mullin explained. Of cers and constables from the departments’ seven sections volunteered at the rodeo, staf ng booths and running alongside bicyclists as they completed the skills course. “Interaction at the event is one-on-one, personal,” Mullin said of the volunteers, who offered explanations, and encouragement and prompts where hand signals would be required. Participants who successfully completed the course selected from various safety-related prizes, while all enjoyed doughnuts, hot dogs, chips and beverages. The rodeo culminated in a drawing for gift certi cates to be used to purchase new bicycles at Macy’s West. Winners of a $100 certi cate were Logan Everts, 8, Cory Corbett, 10, and Rhodri Thomas, 10. Ian Goldsmith, 5, took home a $50 gift certi cate. Contributing to this year’s rodeo were various organizations and individuals including Kwajalein Range Services Environmental Safety and Health and Community Activities departments, Surfway and Sunrise Bakery. Individual contributors included David Fearon, Macy’s West manager, and Mickey Stepanov, KPD resident manager. Alutiiq Security and Technology L.L.C., KPD’s parent company, provided support by way of funding this year’s T-shirts. Newcomer to the island John Vannoy, parent to participants Emily 9, and Gavin, 6, considers the Bike Rodeo a great event. “It gets the kids out to get a little better understanding of how to safely operate your bike here on Kwaj.” When asked how KPD could determine if its focus on safety made an impact, Mullin said, “The response of the community will gauge the success of the day – we’ll know within a week by watching the kids.” is Noah Fast, KPD of cer.


Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Eye protection critical in strong Equatorial sunlight can cause severe damage such as Pterygiums, which are raised, wedgeshaped growths on the cornea. By Elizabeth Davie ReporterLiving so close to the equator introducessome risks. The sun’s effect on eyes can be severe without proper protection.According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun can lead to a “sunburn” of the cornea, the clear surface of the eye. The Web site advises that UV rays are most intense at noon and immediately before and after; from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. UV rays also increase in intensity in relation to altitude and latitude. The higher the altitude, the greater the concentration of UV rays. Likewise, the rays are more powerful the nearer the latitude to the equator. UV rays ‘bounce’ off re ective surfaces including water and sand. Thus, a skier, swimmer, sherman or beachcomber may be bombarded with UV rays from above and below. High exposure to UVB can cause a corneal burn within one hour, although symptoms may not become apparent for six to 12 hours. Symptoms include excessive tearing, pain, redness, swollen eyelids, pain when looking at light, headache, a gritty sensation in the eyes and decreased, hazy vision. Similar symptoms occur when the surface of the eye is physically scratched. The surface of the cornea will regenerate spontaneously in 24 to 48 hours and eyes can be treated with eye drops. According to Dr. Randy Santiago, ophthalmologist on Ebeye, Pterygiums, raised, wedge-shaped growths of the cornea are common here in the Marshalls as well as other places close to the equator. Solar radiation includes visible light and ultraviolet energy, which is not visible but is harmful to the exposed parts of the body. The outer surface of the eye is covered with a layer of cells. The cells on the eye are more sensitive than the skin to ultraviolet damage because it does not have the protective coating. If the cells and the basement membrane on which they rest are damaged by ultraviolet radiation, a healing response is triggered that involves the release of enzymes which “dissolve” the damaged tissue and growth factors that stimulate the growth of new tissue. Given the same exposure, different people will develop different responses due to individual variations in enzyme levels in the tears amongst other things. “Any new growth in the eyelid or any non-healing ulcer around the eyes deserves proper attention,” Santiago said Sun damaged eyes can be treated a number of ways. “My recommendation is to always wear sunglasses or prescription glasses with UV protection in them when you go out in the sun, don’t stay too long out in the sun and to carry a bottle of arti cial tears if you feel a sting or a sandy sensation in your eyes after prolonged sun exposure,” Santiago said. “Most sunglasses have both UVA and UVB protection in them, even if they are lightly tinted. This is what you have to search for in sunglasses. Some of the cheaper brands you nd only have tint or coloring materials in them but offer very little UVB protection,” he added.
