Saturday, Dec. 10, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassVerizon is a pro table company with no nancial problems. So even with sound companies, pensions may be a thing of the past. It’s all just part of the new world of globalization. My wife is vested in two pension plans with companies she used to work for. We were looking forward to that money supplementing our Social Security and savings in retirement. Now, one of those companies is making noises about cutting bene ts. If they do, it will make retirement a little less easier than it would have been. We can only hope it doesn’t happen. But we knew a long time ago that nobody cares about us more than we care about us. If we didn’t do anything to help ourselves, nobody else would either. So over the years, we’ve tried to take advantage of every savings opportunity that presented itself. The place to start is by getting out of debt as much as you can. Even if you have to eat beans for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can’t save money if you owe money. Most importantly, get rid of those #&%$ credit card bills. They can eat you alive before you know it and if you pay the minimum monthly payment, you’ll never get them paid off. That’s the way they’re designed to work. Credit card companies hate it when the total balance is paid. They can’t charge interest on money you don’t owe them. 2 L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editorCommentary Retirement will come ready or not The 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.

Many items were purchased and donated such as medical supplies, sporting equipment, games and over 200 ip ops (enough for every child). I would also like to say thank you to the Boy Scouts and Daisy Girl Scouts who helped us with the collections and a big thanks to Leonard Lollar, Mark, Brandon and Ashley Owens for helping transport all the donations to our warehouse. Because of the generosity of our community we will be able to deliver an awesome Christmas to the islands of Ebadon and Majetto. — Sheri Davis Christmas drop chairWe’ve all seen the American Forces Network spots about choosing to save for retirement over and over again. I wonder if those spots are shown on television stateside. If they are, a heck of a lot of people must be ignoring them. According to what I’ve read and heard on the news, the average American family has more than $4,000 in credit card debt and less than $2,000 in savings. The total credit card debt in the United States is more than $800 billion. The savings rate is next to nothing. Millions of workers don’t even take advantage of company 401(k) plans. I know people on island who haven’t signed up for the Kwajalein Range Services plan. Folks, that’s just plain foolish. I know that for a young family with children, choosing to save or taking money out of a paycheck for a 401(k) is easier said than done a lot of times. It seems like everytime an extra dollar shows up, something happens to make it go bye bye in a hurry. I’ve been there and done that. But if only $10 a week can be squeezed out for saving, that’s $10 more you’ll have some rainy day. Some folks seem to have the attitude that the future will take care of itself. Well, all I can say is good luck with that. Even workers whose companies have pensions can’t be sure they will get them in the coming years. Just ask the 50,000 workers at Verizon whose pensions got cut by an estimated $3 billion. And The bottom line is you have nobody to depend on except you. If you’ve got a wealthy, sick, about-ready-to-go-to-the Pearly Gates relative who loves you, then maybe you don’t have to worry. But the rest of us who didn’t have enough sense to be born into rich families are on our own. We can’t expect the government or employers to hold our hands and lead us gently into retirement. It ain’t gonna’ happen.Remember, no matter what your age, it’s never too early and never too late to start saving money. A couple of bucks here and there will add up.It takes common sense and doing without some of those things you want but don’t really need. For you young folks out there, I’m here to tell you the years will y by and before you know it, you’ll be an old fud like me with retirement staring you right in the face. Be ready for it. Do yourself a huge favor. Pay attention to what the TV says and choose to save.

Saturday, Dec. 10, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassImproved program 3 Kwajalein Job Corps moving to Maui,will provide more benefits By Nell M. Drumheller EditorThe Kwajalein Preparatory Program for Job Corps will move from the Republic of the Marshall Islands to the Island of Maui, Hawaii. Brian D. Daher, acting regional director, San Francisco, and Helen Reed-Rowe, U.S. Embassy, deputy chief of mission, RMI, met with RMI, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and Kwajalein Job Corps representatives Thursday. He said the move date is undetermined, but it will most likely happen in January. “This is the only preparatory course in the entire Job Corps. The program itself is not changing,” Daher said. The course on Kwajalein prepares students to be mainstreamed into the full Job Corps programs. “The Army has been a great friend of the Job Corps on Kwajalein,” Daher said. He added “U.S. Secretary of Labor [Elaine L. Chao] made the decision to move the program from Kwajalein to Maui.” He outlined bene ts of having the campus on Maui versus Kwajalein: • RMI students will now immediately begin their Job Corps education like all other Job Corps students, including those from other Paci c Islands and Puerto Rico, instead of experiencing a two-step process. • Immediate immersion of students in an Englishlanguage environment will bene t their learning and increase their academic gains. • Students will be 24-hour residents of the center, living two-to-a-room in a Marshallese only dormitory. • The center will have ‘senior’ Marshallese students serving in a student government and will live at the end of the hall in each dormitory to assist in improving the comfort zone for the students in transition. • Students will receive more comprehensive and easily accessed medical services and will enjoy an improved, modern living facility. • Local employers work in conjunction with the Job Corps, providing part-time employment for students introducing them to the work force. • Some students will receive their high school diploma when they nish the Job Corps program. Daher said 55 percent of the students at the Maui campus are Marshallese. There are 220 students at the 20-acre campus. “It is a spacious, conducive-to-learning environment,” he added. Current program time is between three and six months. Daher said he believes the program time may be reduced since the Maui campus is a 24-hours-a-day program and students will have more opportunities to learn and use their English language skills. Daher recognized homesickness as the number one problem at all Job Corps campuses. He said Job Corps spends approximately $10,000 on each Job Corps’ student for travel expenses. “We have a commitment to the students to send them home for winter and summer breaks,” he said. Daher said the enrollment is not at 100 percent. “We’re not full. We’re in the mid-90 percent of full,” he said. “We have a commitment to serve as many Marshallese as in the past,” Daher said. The criteria for attending the program will remain the same and Daher stressed the importance of continuing a strong recruiting process within the RMI. “The existing recruitment and referral arrangement for the RMI students consists of individuals working in schools and Marshallese government agencies who have been effective in processing and sending RMI students’ applications to the Outreach and Admissions department of the Hawaii Job Crops Center,” Daher said in a handout he presented to the members of the meeting. All Paci c outer-island applicant folders will continue to be processed through the Hawaii Job Corps Center OA contract. Once students are accepted in Job Corps, the majority of outer islanders are assigned to the Hawaii Job Corps Center. Of all outer-island recruitment from American Samoa, Republic of Palau, Northern Marianas and Micronesia, the Marshallese will continue to represent the majority of students recruited for the Job Corps program. A concern identi ed at the meeting was the challenge of getting passports quickly for the Marshallese students in the program. Reed-Rowe said staff from the U.S. Embassy is working with the Marshallese government to expedite the passport process. “ “The Army has been a great friend of the Job Corps on Kwajalein.

Sponsored by the Marshallese Cultural Society. By Elizabeth Davie Reporter S Some island residents may be wishing they were in the states this holiday season. Staying on Kwajalein may mean missing out on the holiday sales at the mall or ice skating in Central Park, but staying on island presents unique opportunities that would be hard to nd in the states. Where else in the world can you see Santa come out of the ocean (or at least a lagoon)? Scuba Santa is a tradition

Scuba Santa is sponsored by the Kwajalein Scuba Club. unique to Kwaj that was started in 1998. “We prepare for many weeks prior to the event,” said Doug Hepler, who, along with his wife Amy, has coordinated this event for six years. Hepler expects from 200 to 400 spectators at the event that will take place at 7 p.m., Dec. 20 at Emon Beach.When preparing for the event, Hepler said, “We decorate the Emon Beach dive gazebo with lights and other Christmas decorations. Supplies have to be ordered— chemical lights, candy, costume items, etc. We coordinate with KPD [Kwajalein Police Department] for crowd control on the beach and to use their bullhorn for our beach ‘cheermiester,’ Mrs. Marta Geeslin. We purchase a live tree from the high school; decorate it with up to 75 chemical lights, for our tree team to light up underwater. We rig water hoses for the fountain team to put on the colored, lit water spray show. And, we obtain the services of a scubacerti ed Santa.” The event, which includes a livelit tree coming out of the lagoon, a water show and Santa and his elves appearing from underwater, is instructed by Hepler to ensure the enjoyment of the on-shore observers. “We meet at 6 p.m. to gear up and go over what we will do and the assignments.

Saturday, Dec. 10, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassHOLIDAYS, from Page 5 6about 6:45 p.m., we slip into the lagoon, as unobtrusively as possible. Mrs. Geeslin starts her Christmas carol sing-along with the crowd. At about 7 p.m., when it is nally dark, I give one loud underwater signal, and the tree team starts to pop the chem. lights on the weighted live tree underwater, which appears, to those on shore, to be magically lighting up underwater and the fountain team starts the light and water spray show. After about ve minutes, I signal again, and the tree team emerges out of the water with the now-lit tree, to pose by the dive shack. Another ve minutes, and I give the last signal, the fountain show stops and the underwater elves, all scuba-certi ed high school students, and I escort Santa out of the water. We drop our scuba tanks, and the two chief underwater elves pose with Santa for pictures and to greet the kids; the rest of the underwater elves go behind the fence of the dive gazebo and hand out candy and chem. lights to the children,” he said. When asked how they choose a Santa for the unique event he said, “we look for an older man, experienced with scuba, with white hair and a white beard, who is jolly and somewhat overweight.” Hepler and his wife put a lot of time and energy into this event. “I am involved in this for several reasons… loyalty to the Kwajalein Scuba Club, love of the Christmas season, the pleasure to see so many friends and neighbors have a good time, and the sheer joy of going underwater any time I possibly can for any reason,” he said. Hepler describes it as a unique one-of-a-kind family event not to be missed. Another holiday tradition is the boat parade of lights. This Kwajalein Yacht Club event has been around since 1988. “Christmas boat parades are popular at many yacht clubs in the states and it was time to bring it to Kwajalein. Nate Jackson is credited with motivating the tradition at Kwajalein. Although there were only two or three cruising boats at Kwajalein, it was organized and held on Christmas Eve,” Said Bruce Premo, yacht club member. According to Premo, the tradition was held on Christmas Eve for a long time and only in this decade was it moved to the weekend before Christmas. The move was made based on the preference of the boat owners and for better participation. It also removes a con ict with Christmas Eve services and family traditions. This year’s event will be held on Dec. 18. The people going out on the boats will begin meeting at the main marina piers around 6 p.m. The boats will leave the harbor around 6:30 p.m. and line up off Echo Pier to start the parade at 7 p.m. Preparing to take part in this event can be tricky. “One of the special considerations is the number of lights that can be powered. The same lights used for house decorating are used on the boats and they need 115 volts. Most electrical systems on boats are 12 volts. So, either a power inverter must be used to convert 12 volts to 115 volts or a 115-volt generator must be used,” Premo said, “If you simply put 10 strings of lights on your boat, you will need a continuous supply of 40 amps. The engines on most sailboats are not very large and have small 12-volt generators. The remaining power must come from batteries and when they run down the lights go out. I learned this the hard way the rst year I did the boat parade with my boat, Moonshine, about six years ago. My engine and generator only put out about 15 amps and the batteries were a little old, so I could only power the lights for about 30 minutes.” Premo explained another task, mainly for sailboats, is to make sure the engine on the boat is in good working order. “Sailboats typically don’t use an engine to get around and only need it when the winds are light or for bringing the boat up to the dock. The fact that they are small in size and not used very often can make them problematic for the event.” Once all the boats are decorated and ready the marine patrol boat leads the parade. “We normally line up behind the CIS patrol boat off the end of Echo Pier and start the rst loop through the ski boat area around 7 p.m. The parade makes three to four loops through the ski area. In past years, some boats, normally the bigger ones, opted to take the parade to Ebeye. Last year we traded Christmas songs back and forth with the Marshallese people that came down to the Ebeye pier to watch the parade. When asked why he participates in this event every year he said, “I have been around water and sailing on boats since I was a kid and love to do any activity that involves being on or in the water, which probably is good since I live on a small island surrounded by lots of water. Like many other sailboat owners, I also take pride in my boat and love to share my excitement of the hobby with other people. It is very rewarding to know that decorating my boat and entering it in the parade will bring enjoyment to so many people.” Premo added the community is welcome to stop by the marina before or after the parade to get a closer look at the boats. For something a little more native try checking out the Jebta Christmas performances on Ebeye this year. The Jebta begin to dance on Dec. 25 early in the afternoon. They will dance from then until 2 or 3 a.m. They will start again later on in the morning on Dec. 26 and dance until late in the afternoon, until all the Jebta have danced at all the churches. In a previous Hourglass issue Rev. Elden Buck, who was the Protestant chaplain on Kwaj from 1968 to 1981, explained the tradition of Jebta A Jebta is a group that gets together to sing and dance. These groups are usually gathered around the landowner on whose land they live. According to Buck, everyone is involved in the singing groups, with old people and small children included in the same Jebta On Ebeye, the groups may have as many as 40 or 50 members. Buck went on to explain, all through November and December the Jebta rehearse almost every evening, meeting from about 9 p.m. until as late as 2 or 3 a.m., in schoolrooms, living rooms, on porches and even See HOLIDAYS, Page 16

Traction and in ammatory headaches are symptoms of other disorders, ranging from stroke to sinus infection. Like other types of pain, headaches can serve as warning signals of more serious disorders. This is particularly true for headaches caused by in ammation, including those related to meningitis as well as those resulting from diseases of the sinuses, spine, neck, ears and teeth. Is there any treatment? When headaches occur three or more times a month, preventive treatment is usually recommended, according to sources from NINDS. Drug therapy, biofeedback training, stress reduction and elimination of certain foods from the diet are the most common methods of preventing and controlling migraine and other vascular headaches. Regular exercise, such as swimming or vigorous walking, can also reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches. Drug therapy for migraine is often combined with biofeedback and relaxation training. What is the prognosis? Not all headaches require medical attention. But some types of headache are signals of more serious disorders and call for prompt medical care. These include: sudden, severe headache or sudden headache associated with a stiff neck; headaches associated with fever, convulsions, or accompanied by confusion or loss of consciousness; headaches following a blow to the head, or associated with pain in the eye or ear; persistent headache in a person who was previously headache free; and recurring headache in children. Migraine headaches may last a day or more and can strike as often as several times a week or as rarely as once every few years.Hourglass reportsRiding a bike to and from work may sometimes seem like a hassle; especially if rain is pouring down. However, the exercise you get from peddling instead of riding in a vehicle and the lack of automobiles within the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll is good for your health. Dr. Jill Horner, Kwajalein Hospital, said headaches probably occur less frequently in the Kwajalein population than they do in the stateside population. “The clear air, lack of air pollution and less exposure to car fumes result in many people experiencing improvement in ‘headache syndromes’ when they move to Kwajalein,” she said. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke there are four types of headache: vascular, muscle contraction (tension), traction and in ammatory. The most common type of vascular headache is migraine. Migraine headaches are usually characterized by severe pain on one or both sides of the head, an upset stomach, and, at times, disturbed vision. Women are more likely than men to have migraine headaches. After migraine, the most common type of vascular headache is the toxic headache produced by fever. Other kinds of vascular headaches include cluster headaches, which cause repeated episodes of intense pain and headaches resulting from high blood pressure.

Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) has his share of anxieties about starting high school, but once he arrives on campus, he discovers he’s attending Sky High, a special learning facility for the children of superheroes. Will realizes his father is actually super-human crime ghter Captain Stronghold (Kurt Russell), while his mom is fellow champion Josie Jetstream (Kelly Preston). However, in Will’s rst few days at school, Coach Boomer (Bruce Campbell) is unable to discover any superior abilities in him, meaning that instead of joining the school’s budding heroes, he’s been relegated to the ranks of the lowly sidekicks.
