Doug Hepler Teacher, Kwajalein Jr-Sr High SchoolLike many Kwaj residents, I am a runner. I enjoy the exercise of running, the fellowship of the Running Club, and most of all, competing in the annual Rustman Triathalon, probably my one true obsession. However, I have a slight problem with all this… a weight problem. Yes, I admit to a certain amount of whale insulation and this does not translate well into good running ability. When I shop for a T-Shirt, I look for size EP (extra porky). How do I explain all this? I will use acronyms and abbreviations. Look around our community and you see them everywhere… SMDC, POV, CONUS, USAKA, IT, ARMY.MIL, KRS, etc. It was the same when I was in the navy… when the eet sailed, it was a FleetEx. When they used torpedoes, it was a TorpEx. And when we Sailors pulled into port and got liberty, that was a DrunkEx. In order to better explain my yearly weight and running training cycle, from June when we go on vacation when school lets out, until April, when the Rustman Triatholon is run, I shall now describe some terms I use… the “Cycle of Acronyms & Abbreviations”. V.P.= (vacation pork): That weight I gain from June 20 until Sept. 1, while on vacation. B.I.L.D.D.= (brother-in law diet destruction): How V.P. is gained, by gleefully consuming barbecue and dark beer with that exclusive threemember group of men brave enough to marry a Lacost sister. R.W.O.= (running while obese): What I do from August to at least February, until the V.P. is worked off. W.W.I.T.= (what was I thinking): A pre-cardiac thought I have at the end of each Running Club Fun Run, as a result of R.W.O.I.W.B.L.B.B.= (I wanna be like Brian Brewster): A self-explanatory impossibility. I will never be in as good a shape as Brian, no matter how hard I train.W.F.P.W.= (warning from pitying wife): Where Amy cautions me not to keel over during my evening run. S.T.T.V.= (secret Ten-Ten visit): Where we clandestinely purchase candy, chips, beer, etc., which enables us to continue to R.W.O., and to maintain our V.P. F.R.H.= (fun-run humiliation): What happens to me each time I participate in a Fun Run, due to residual V.P. B.B.F.= (blubber-bounce factor): Self-explanatory, where the V.P. hangs off me, and bounces up and down as I run (causing itching). M.W.A.S.= (must wear a shirt): To avoid embarrassment while I run, due to my B.B.F. D.W.L.O.T.B.= (danger while laying on the beach): A term coined in my honor by my older (and thinner) brother, where he cautions me to watch out for Greenpeace while I am relaxing at Emon Beach, lest they tow me out to sea to save me. N.F.L.L.= (nine foot-long legs): What I see when the affable Dave Fortin blows past me, seemingly with no effort or exertion, while I chug, and huff and bounce along. (Reminds me of War of the Worlds…) All of this leads to the most important term of all… B.S.I.R.T.O.= (Bob Sholar-induced Rustman training obsession): Where our distinguished Running Club president weaves his web of in uence over poor souls like me, causing us to train hard week after week, month after month… all for a lousy T-shirt. As the doctor said at the end of the movie, Bridge on the River Kwai “Madness. Madness! Madness !!!”


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2006 3Marshallese government President Kessai Note speech opens Nitijela sessionSee LICE, Page 6Head lice reported in schools, nuisance but curable By Nell M.

The Nitijela holds two sessions annually, in January and August, totaling 50 days a year. At the beginning of each session they have held an opening ceremony. The Nitijela is comprised of 33 representatives. The Nitijela senators are elected by popular vote and hold of ce for four-year terms. The senators elect a president, speaker and vice-speaker from within their body. The president holds the titles of chief of state and head of the government.

The next election will be not later than November 2007. Hourglass reportsAccording to a letter sent to parents of Kwajalein School students, head lice has been identi ed on island. In the letter released by School Superintendent Dan Frazier he said, “Although we have not had a signi cant outbreak of head lice at school at this time, we have been informed that some homes on our island found lice over the holiday break.” Frazier said, “A single case was reported to the elementary school of ce on Jan. 5.” He added that the hospital responded immediately and sent two nurses to check the entire grade. “After the check, a second case was found, but that is the extent of the outbreak, to the extent we know at this time.” Head lice can easily travel from one host to another. Children often transfer them by sharing clothing or pillows. However, lice have other ways of traveling. For example, they can oat on the top of the water in a swimming pool and move from one person to another. Head lice are tiny insects that live only on people’s scalp and hair. They hatch from small eggs (nits) that are rmly attached to the individual hairs near the scalp and cannot be easily moved up or down the hair (as can specks of dandruff). They look like grains of sand. Nits may be found throughout the hair but are most often located at the back of the scalp, behind the ear, and at the top of the head. The eggs hatch in about 10 days, with new lice reaching adulthood in about two weeks. The female louse is about the size of a sesame seed and can live for up to


Boro Song at th e Former Kwaj Kid Andrea L with some help from loca Brian Elderkin Jerry Davis Amber Banducci Michael TaylorBy Elizabeth Davie ReporterKwaj kid turned recording artist Andrea Lindborg returned to her roots last week. While visiting the island Lindborg performed two shows with several other on-island musicians. The crew preformed Saturday night at the Yuk club for residents 21 and over and an all-ages show Sunday night at the multi-purpose room. Lindborg was joined by a full band with Jerry Davis on bass guitar, Brian Elderkin on guitar, Danny Barthle on drums, Lindsay Davis and Amber Banducci on vocals, Michael Taylor and Michael Graham on trumpet and Dick Shields on clarinet. The group preformed 11 songs from LindborgÂ’s album Boro Song for a large audience both nights. Lindborg came to Kwaj when she was 3 and left in her senior year of high school. Spending a total of 14 years

What made this and other performances on Kwaj special to her was that she started playing trumpet in fourth grade with Shields as her instructor. “He is a real inspiration and he really brings out a joy of music,” she said of Shields. “He was always really encouraging. I am very thankful for his in uence and for the in uence of the islands.” When asked why she chose jazz, she said because of the element of self expression and improvisation. “I have always loved jazz,” she added. After leaving Kwaj, Lindborg studied jazz at Oberlin in Ohio. Before moving to New York City she worked on a cruise ship. “It was not as glamorous as I thought it would be but I got a chance to travel,” she said. She also described the experience as good and bad. Lindborg said she moved to New York City because she heard it ‘was the place to be for jazz.’ Lindborg signed


Wednesday, Jan. 11, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6LINDBORG, from Page 5 Taking care January is National Healthy Weight WeekBy Amanda Curtis, RN, and Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRN Kwajalein HospitalJust in time for New Year’s resolutions, Jan. 18-24 is National Healthy Weight Week. According to the U.S. Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity (2001) approximately 300,000 adult deaths in the United States each year can be attributed to unhealthy dietary habits and physical inactivity or sedentary behavior. Only 33.5 percent of American adults are at a healthy weight and 30.5 percent are considered obese. From 1960 to 2000, obesity more than doubled from 13.3 to 30.9 percent, with most of this increase occurring in the past 20 years. (National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, 2000). The most common screening tool for weight status is body mass index. BMI is calculated by dividing weight in kilograms by height in meters squared: Weight/ with an independent production company there for three albums. She described the company as a small scale record company where she has more say in what goes on. Her rst album ‘Boro Song’ will be in stores in the United States at the end of January.She explained that Boro is the Marshallese word throat height squared. Using pounds and inches: multiply your weight in pounds by 704.5, then divide the result by your height in inches, and divide that result by your height in inches a second time. On-line resources and BMI calculator can be found at http:// Healthy weight is not just the numbers; it includes lifestyle, eating habits, good nutrition, and physical activity. Initial goals for weight loss include reducing body weight by about 10 percent from baseline, lose no more than from 1 to 2 pounds per week for a period of six months, and combine a reduced calorie diet with increased physical activity. (National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute) Talk with your healthcare provider before starting any weight loss program. For more information on the statistics in this article visit the Weight-Control Information Network at: http:// and at: obesity/lose_wt/recommen.htm and loosely translated means ‘songs from the heart.’ All the songs on the album were written by Lindborg.Lindborg, who tries to come to the island once a year, describes her performances on Kwaj as “an amazing experience. “I was nervous at rst because it is different when you know people, but it is special,” she said. LICE, from Page 3 20 to 30 days, and can lay about six eggs a day. The lice live by biting and sucking blood from the scalp. Lice can survive for up to 8 hours between feedings and can do so off the body. “A parent who suspects that his or her child has head lice should ask a health care provider to diagnose the problem and recommend appropriate treatment. The parent should also notify school of cials as soon as possible,” Frazier said. He added that children should be cautioned not to share combs or ball caps with friends. “Usually, you probably will not see the lice, only the eggs. These are tiny pearl gray, oval-shaped specks attached to the hair near the scalp. Look carefully through the hair in natural light and you may want to use a magnifying glass. Search for nits at the back of the neck, behind the ears and at the top of the head. He said that a treatment of a special shampoo will kill the lice, but the eggs can hatch up to 10 days later. Therefore, repeated treatments over 10 days are recommended. According to Kwajalein Hospital Patient Care Policy/Procedure 24.1 “Children that have been sent home, due to a positive lice inspection, will not be permitted to return to school until cleared by medical staff. Parents must bring the children to the hospital for the child to be inspected by a medical staff member. A child with an active case of new nits will not be permitted to go to school until it has been established that the child is nit free or that nits that are present are old and greater than 1/2 inch from the skin line on the shaft.” “Head lice are usually diagnosed once or twice a year on Kwaj,” Frazier said.

This means that calculations for your deductible start over with the New Year. Kwajalein Hospital will collect payment for of ce visits from patients at the time of service. We are implementing this process for January and February to collect fees that will most likely be applied to your deductible up front instead of after insurance processing which has been our practice. Kwajalein Hospital will continue to le these claims with your insurance company on your behalf and provide you with a paid receipt so that you can track that your claims have been processed. Once we have established and documented that your deductible has been met, we will collect only your of ce visit co-pay at the time of service. This process change applies to of ce visits only. Lab and radiology will be led as usual and fees owed by the patient will be collected after the insurance company has processed the claim. Fees for medications are collected at the time they are picked up.
