Saturday, Dec. 17, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglasscan’t just pick up burgers or pizza from the snack bar anymore. We can’t pop into Caf Paci c for lunch or dinner and complain about the price. Now lunch and dinner is a big deal. A lot of thought and effort has to go into it. I wouldn’t mind so much, but just because she works 70 hours or more per week, my wife wants me to help. My cooking skills amount to heating up soup (if I can nd the can opener) or microwaving something. But she insists I learn how to cook for real. I keep telling her I’ve just had a heart attack and she shouldn’t work me so hard. She peevishly says if I don’t help, I won’t live long enough to have another one. I guess I should count myself lucky. I managed to avoid cooking for 35 years of marriage. All good things must come to an end as the saying goes. Stinkin’ heart attack. I have to go now. It seems I have sauce to stir.2 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.

I was tempted to call my dad and say, “Why didn’t you warn me about this?” But he would just laugh and I would have less time to put this tricycle together before the children woke up. This was not my idea of Christmas peace and joy.Believe it or not, Christmas is about Christ. That’s how this holiday got its start. Well-meaning Christians decided they wanted to celebrate the birth of their Savior at a special service, a Mass for Christ, and Christmas was born. It was supposed to be a simple affair, but of course you know how hard it is to be simple; it’s like asking Donald Trump to build a small house. Not gonna’ happen.So, after awhile, people started adding to Christmas with traditions and festivities, such as putting decorations on a tree until you forgot that there was a tree. Today, some people don’t believe in the original meaning of Christmas, but Respect for one another is real Christmas joy do enjoy its side effects. They like the idea of peace, joy, love, the chance for a great party and good food. Now we have two parallel holidays that most often get along, but once in awhile argue and ght like siblings. “I love you, but if you touch my toy once more I’ll knock you into next week.” One side wants to protect the centrality of Christ and the other side simply wants to have a pleasant party and a warm holiday. We draw lines and make boundaries and tell each other what we can do or ought to do. This is not my idea of Christmas peace and joy. Here’s my idea, take it for what its worth. Christians celebrate Christmas for all it says about Christ and his birth. Enjoy his joy. If you are worried that Christmas is too commercialized, buy less stuff. Be magnanimous and gracious toward those who don’t share your faith. Non-Christians, celebrate the holiday in your tradition. Thank the Christians that they started this idea. If peace and joy are meaningful to you at this time of year, show that to those around you. For all of us, let’s lighten up. The holiday season is often loaded down with expectations and anticipations that everything would work out just so. It might just happen that the tricycle isn’t put together or the perfect gift isn’t found or the church service doesn’t sing my favorite carol or Christ is obscured by the glitter and lights. If, for this one time of year we treated each other with dignity and respect, that would be my idea of Christmas peace and joy. Have a blessed Christmas! It’s been six weeks since my heart attack. Since then, I’ve come up with only one recommendation for everybody. Don’t have one. First of all, a heart attack really hurts. The doctor says mine was small as far as heart attacks go. If that’s what a small one feels like, I don’t ever want to have a big one. But what happens afterwards is even worse. A ‘heart’ diet. No more chocolate donuts or Cheez-Its. No canned soups. No frozen dinners, No red meat. Nothing fried. Nothing with saturated fat. No white rice. No white bread. Pretty much nothing that taste good. My wonderful wife has made every effort to nd things with low sodium and no fat to feed me. She has bought three cookbooks with recipes to cook ‘heart healthy’ food. She made several dinners using those recipes and as I ate them, I kept thinking, “Why did I have to live?” I’m not saying they were tasteless globs of paste that starving dogs wouldn’t have, but they were close. I love you anyway, sweetheart. Getting something to eat is a real challenge now. We can’t just open a can of chili, nuke it and call it dinner. We Don’t make me mad or I’ll invite you to dinner

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 17, 2005 3By Nell M. Drumheller EditorThe School Advisory Council met Tuesday and discussed issues including policy changes and the academic calendar. The official representatives and 11 other people attended the monthly meeting. A North Central Association team will visit Kwajalein schools March 1-3. Visiting team members are: Philip Gordon LeBeau, a retired school administrator from Savage, Minn.; William Russell Munsell, an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado, Denver and Nicole Pangelinan, a guidance counselor, Anderson Elementary School, Guam. Kwajalein schools are accredited through NCA. Ebeye guest students and parents for the elementary school met with Vice Principal Teri King and teacher Cheryl Delong, Noda Lojkar, Republic of the Marshall Islands representative and Alan Taylor, Host Nations representative on Nov. 28. According to Pam Duffy, Ebeye parent representative, “Vice Principal Teri King and Cheryl Delong helped us with some policies and rules that have been implemented for our guest students and will help us parents and the schools in making sure that our children are accounted for after school hours.” The policies covered the safety issue of students riding water taxis to and from Kwajalein and signing out guest student children for lunch and after school programs. Duffy said the sign-in, sign-out sheet has been helpful. Dan Frazier, superintendent of Kwajalein Schools, explained the importance of reviewing school policies on a regular basis. “In my opinion, the best way to do this would be on a rotational basis, reviewing a portion of the policies each meeting,” he said. James Landgraff, SAC chairman agreed, “It’s a good school board policy to review policies,” he said. Policies 2000.07, Line of Authority; 3000.01, School Calendar; 3000.08, Child Care Services and 3000.20 Testing Program received first readings at the two-hour meeting. Policy 2000.07, Line of Authority was renamed as 2000.07 Communication Channels, it was approved unanimously. Policy 3000.01, School Calendar, originally stated ‘the superintendent will recommend a school calendar consistent with the requirement established by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll to the school advisory council during the month of January each year for the following school year.’ It was amended to state: no later than January each year giving more exibility for presenting the calendar. It was approved unanimously. Policy 3000.08, Child Care Services, was amended to read the child development center, a nursery school, providing services to island resident children age 2 (versus 2.5) through 6 years. This change brings the written policy in line with the actual requirements of the program. It was approved unanimously. Policy 3000.20, Testing Program, was discussed at length with varying view points. Bonnie Compton, representing PTO, wanted assurance that after a written policy was approved, it would be followed. Frazier said of Policy 3000.20, “In my opinion, current policy is outdated. Modern schools need the exibility to target speci c areas for school improvement and adapt their metrics toward measuring student growth in these areas. Our school needs a policy that outlines the parameters for our testing program in general terms. Then speci cs can be adapted annually.” The standing Policy 3000.20 identi ed speci c tests to be administered. The recommended changes made the policy more general, leaving identifying the tests to local representatives including the superintendent and principal with input from teachers. It added verbiage prohibiting testing which would identify students, or their families, political af liatio ns, sex behavior and attitudes, income, as well as other indicators which might be embarrassing for the student. Frazier said, “Please note that this proposed policy is a mandatory policy of the U.S. Department of Education and reflects federal law. The policy was approved with a 6-3 vote. Brian Brewster, teacher representative, presented three school-year calendars: early start, late start version one and late start version two. He provided an information sheet with input from Kwajalein teachers. Most of the teachers support the late start version one calendar. This is a quick breakdown of the calendars:Early startMost similar to current calendar. • First day for students is Aug. 8. • Christmas break starts later; rst semester ends before break. • Last day of school is May 25.Late start version one• First day for students is Aug. 18. • End of rst semester is Jan. 20. • Last day of school is June 8.Later start version two• First day for students is Aug. 25. • End of rst semester is Jan. 27. • Last day of school is June 15. The 2006-2007 school calendar will be voted on at the rst SAC meeting of 2006, on Jan. 18. The SAC acts in an advisory capacity to the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander and the logistics contractor to help establish and promote standards of educational services for both dependent children and adults residing on Kwajalein.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 17, 2005 5 By Elizabeth Davie ReporterIt has been said that it is better to give than receive. Some island residents believe it and have spent many hours preparing and dropping off gifts to some of the neighboring islands. The Yokwe Yuk Women’s club organized a Christmas drop for the islands of Majetto and Ebadon. According to Sherri Davis, Outer Island Christmas Drop chair, the funds were raised through the annual YYWC silent basket auction; $2,677 was raised for the drop and another $2,000 plus in donations came from individuals and companies on island which included the re department silent auction. “We also collected donated items from the community through our ‘Wish List’ collection drive in November, and the student council at the elementary school organized a collection drive of school supplies, shampoo and soap,” she said. The club ordered enough items for 250 Children. “We have a loving group of teachers who each year handmake their gift bags and purchase items for the 50 0-2 year old children. Their bags included items such as a washcloth, bowl, cup, lotion and clothing. The Grace Sherwood Library graciously donated over 200 tote bags that we used for the children 3 and up. We lled each bag with new ip ops, T-shirt, package of underwear, ball, coloring and activity book, crayons or markers, hygiene kit and toys. All the boys got hats and the girls hair accessories,” Davis said, “We also See CHRISTMAS DROPS, Page 6 I I

We took 25 20-pound bags of rice and 375 pounds of apples and oranges. We gave two casting nets to Majetto and one to Ebadon.” According to Anne Greene, the longest standing member of the YYWC, the drop began in December, 1988. It is the longest standing drop. The goods were delivered Thursday by two helicopters, leaving limited space for members of the club. Only three members were able to experience the drop. The ladies were greeted with smiling faces and handicrafts from the women of the islands. At both islands the children were lined up and ready to receive their gifts. After distributing gifts to the children of Majetto, the school and members of the community both performed a dance for their visitors. They also expressed their thanks with gifts. At Ebadon each child handed the ladies a gift as they received their gift. Jennifer Aakre, one of the women who attended said, “My most memorable time was when the kids and adults sang for us on Majetto. They did such a great job and you could see the sincerity in their faces. Although, for me, the whole experience was memorable, from the planning to the drop off. There were many ladies who put a lot of time and effort into the Christmas drop. To watch it and see the passion that goes into it was remarkable. To be a part of the actual drop was so neat. It was fun to see the children waiting in line and excitedly waiting for their gift bags. Everyone should get to experience the Christmas drop.” Davis said, “I would like to thank the Kwajalein community for their wonderful support. Without the monetary donations and items donated we wouldn’t be able to continue to do this each year.” For the 14th year the Kwajalein Junior-Senior High School students made a trip to the island of Carlos to spread Christmas cheer. Friday’s trip was a school-sponsored co-curricular activity. Peter Barbella, one of the organizers and sponsors of the drop, said “We feel we have developed a relationship with the people there over the years. “We conduct a fund drive strictly in school during the Thanksgiving to Christmas time frame,” Barbella said, explaining how the funds for the drop are raised. “We have not nished counting, but we anticipate we will raise approximately $3,000 this year,” he added. A few teachers, 41 students and two KHS graduates returning to Kwaj for the holidays ventured to Carlos for most of the day. “We bring 24 boxes of grocery items, approximately one for each household on Carlos. We also bring a variety of other amenities: ip ops, goody-bags of treats, jump ropes, footballs, Frisbees, handheld mirrors, hair accessories, etc.,” Barbella said. The school planned a fun-packed day for all the residents of the small island. “Santa shows up, gives out treats and toys to the kids. The kids play with the items received from Santa. In addition we bring bean toss, ring toss games. This year we brought a limbo bar. Our band students bring instruments and entertain with Christmas songs. We have a piata,” Barbella said. He added the people of Carlos sometimes perform for them with song and dance, and the community always prepares food for them. Barbella, who has been organizing the event with Ric Fullerton for 12 years, said he is involved with this drop because “it is a chance to give something back to the Marshallese living close to Kwajalein. It is a service opportunity for our students. We love doing it and consider ourselves fortunate to have the opportunity to experience Carlos every year.”

Andy Stitzer (Carell) is a cheerfully geeky guy who is settling into middle age with his large collection of comic books, action gures, and collectable models. Andy works in the billing department of a big-box electronics store, and seems reasonably happy with his life. However, one day his friends and co-workers David (Paul Rudd), Jay (Romany Malco), and Cal (Seth Rogen) discover that Andy has a secret — due to his rather severe jitters around women, Andy is still a virgin. Andy’s pals are appalled at this state of affairs, and set out to nd a woman who’d be willing to get horizontal with him. After a number of disastrous dates, everyone thinks Andy has nally struck gold when he meets Trish (Catherine Keener), an attractive single mother who takes an immediate liking to him. Four Brothers Four men come together to nd out how and why the woman who raised them was killed in this hard-edged urban drama from director John Singleton. Shorttempered Bobby (Mark Wahlberg), struggling musician Jack (Garrett Hedlund), streetwise Angel (Tyrese Gibson), and hard-working Jeremiah (Andre Benjamin) are four guys who don’t appear to have much in common, in terms of either race or temperament. However, these men have one very important bond — all four were adopted and raised by the same woman (Fionnula Flanagan), and they all love her as a son, and respect one another as brothers. When their mother is killed during a robbery at a grocery store, the four brothers come together for the funeral, but when they don’t get straight answers about what happened to her, they begin looking into the crime themselves.

Three residents complete full 26.2 mile course at PaupersÂ’ Marathon Monday(Photo by Bruce Premo) By Bob Sholar Kwajalein Running ClubJohn Fraser, Dave Fortin and AnnElise Peterson ran full marathons (26.2 miles) on Kwajalein Island, starting at 3 a.m. (yes, a.m. to beat the heat) on Monday. Their times were: 3:49:47, 5:05:48 and 5:16:50 respectively. It was the rst marathon for Fortin and Peterson. It took Fraser 30 years to forget why he ran his rst, and he completed his 2nd ever. To ll the Kwaj eld and make an event, Kwajalein Running Club established a team section for the PaupersÂ’ Marathon. The Kwajalein Island Marathon is named in recognition that its participants canÂ’t afford (or justify) expense of ying to Honolulu for the marathon held there on the same day. Six teams competed, using a loop course of 2.6 miles, each team completing 10 loops. One team, Buoyancy Compensators, was formed by several friends of Peterson to escort her through her achievement. The Red Lightning Bolts was a team of 10 boys from 7 to 11, some nished with appropriately red faces in the late morning heat.
