Box 23, Local; or T h e K w a j a l e i n H o u r g l a s s The Kwajalein Hourglass By Joe MorrisA strange man with menacing eyes and a hatchet in his hand comes into your home and says “I consider the letter ‘Z’ sacrosanct and every time you used the letter ‘Z’ in a spoken word, I’m going to chop off one of your ngers. Now, are you ready to start apologizing?” Who is guilty in the scenario above? Clearly it’s the thug, the criminal who came into your home. The Danes who recently posted images of Muhammad in Danish newspapers can be judged to be certain things. Insensitive and unwise perhaps. To There is no right to not be offended. The Danes have been accused of offending the sensibilities of the Muslim world. I challenge anyone to show me what is sensible about burning down a nation’s embassy as a response to a cartoon. For that matter, I challenge anyone to explain to me what is not ignorant or worse about burning a nation’s embassy due to the actions of a free press. Terrorism is used because it works. People who are afraid to speak up are being terrorized and the only way to combat this is by openly calling this what it is, criminal activity with religious sancti cation. Free speech is not intolerance. Intolerance is where people do not tolerate what another expresses. People speaking out against rioting Muslims are not guilty of religious intolerance because civilized people cannot tolerate criminal activity. The way to deal with the maniacally irrational and criminals is not to lay low and hope they go away. The way to deal with them is in a civilized manner, but criminals must rst be held accountable for their actions. “He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetuate it,” —Martin Luther King, Jr. We would like to take the time to express our deep appreciation to the Kwajalein Chapel community for the sincere and warm love shown to us during our transit through U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. After receiving word that my mother was terminally ill, our adventure began with a buddy pass that slipped away at the last minute. Having just returned to Majuro from a medical trip to Honolulu in December, our nances said no, but we had to go. Desperately, I e-mailed a Kwajalein friend I had met in Honolulu last December. I told him of our situation, and he sponsored us to come through Kwajalein. We arrived on a Saturday and were to leave on Tuesday, a piece of cake! We attended chapel services on Sunday morning and were truly blessed by the message. Later, we were invited by a friendly brother-in-Christ to attend the worship service and fellowship service later that evening, we attended both and felt as if we were with family. Oooops…delay…cancel, which eventually delayed us to Friday. We eagerly looked forward to another fellowship at the Religious Education Building. Besides the great sharing of the word, the prayers and fellowship were refreshing. It was as if time stood still and leaped forward at the same time. For those of you reading this letter we want you to know that God does show his love through people. It has been years since we have felt so blessed with the loving fellowship that we encountered. The Kwajalein Chapel community is truly a group that shows they are Christians and reveal that God is alive and well on Kwajalein. One of Jesus’ names is Emmanuel which means God with us and we testify that through the wonderful family of God that we met here, we loudly proclaim that He is here. Forever grateful, The Reverends Gary & Margie Bixby


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday Feb 22 2006 3See TRAMS, Page 12All aboard New Disney World-type trams to be used for residential portion of shuttle route The new trams will run from the residential areas to the airport. (Photo by Nell Drumheller)By Nell M. Drumheller EditorBeginning Tuesday a new form of public transportation will be in place on Kwajalein. The 50-passenger, open-air tram will run from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. seven days a week. “The tram will be used for the residential portion of the shuttle route, while a bus will be used for the industrial section. Passengers must disembark at the main air terminal and change vehicles to complete the route. The system is primarily a people mover, the kind you may see at Universal Studios, or Disney World moving patrons from parking areas to the theme parks,” Alan Metelak, supervisor Kwajalein Range Services Automotive Operations/Production Control, said. The tram route will take 30 minutes, with most stops averaging under a minute, according to Metelak. The tram, which is two open-sided people movers pulled by a tug, has pull-down rain curtains. “If it starts to rain the driver will pull over and pull down the curtains,” Metelak said. If the weather is especially wet, a bus will be used instead of the tram. The tram’s top speed is 13 mph. The trailers have four-wheel steer and follow the tug eliminating the need for wide turns on corners. The tram has a baggage storage area at the front of each trailer. One safety concern, according to Metelak, is that passengers can embark and disembark on either side of the tram. Passengers will be getting off the tram onto the street. Bike riders on Kwaj will have to learn to watch for them, Metelak said. “The work bus will continue to operate during peak hours as it has in the past,” Metelak said. Some safety requirements on the tram: • No standing while tram is moving • No entry or exit while tram is moving Tram service will operate north of 9th Street up to new housing 6th and Palm 6:30 6th and Lagoon 6:33 Coral BQ 6:34 7:04 7:34 8:04 8:34 9:04 9:34 10:04 10:34 11:04 11:34 12:04 12:34 1:04 1:34 2:04 2:34 3 :04 3:34 4:04 4:34 5:04 5:34 6:04 Tropics 6:35 7:05 7:35 8:05 8:35 9:05 9:35 10:05 10:35 11:05 11:35 12:05 12:35 1:05 1:35 2:05 2:35 3:05 3:35 4:05 4:35 5:05 5:35 6:05 Ocean Rd.

Drumheller EditorFor many, the combination of barbecue and beer is a natural. Apparently on Kwajalein the lure of that combo is irresistible. Sunday evening a group gathered at the American Legion Veteran’s Hall to try eight distinctive avors of home brew and 12 pulled-pork barbecue samples ranging from mild to spicy. Event organizer Bud Teague said “You have to make your own fun on Kwaj.” He •


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2006 5 B • Q added combining the brewing and barbeque seemed like a good way to get people out. Five independent judges were chosen for each competition. And were told to rate the entries from one to ve using the criteria of ‘what tastes best.’ The brewer who won the judges’ choice admitted he prefers wine over beer, but that didn’t keep him from entering and winning this competition. Rick Funk’s Honey Pale Ale took rst prize. He said he cooks the brew for a day, gives it a week to ferment, then bottles it and it is ready to drink within a couple of weeks. “My next door neighbor, at West Point [New York] was a home brewer. I asked him ‘how do you do it?,’ Funk said. Funk added that learning to brew was easy and he had been doing it since 1997 but preferred making wine over beer. Funk’s beer, a light golden color, is made with 3 pounds of honey for each 5 gallons of beer. Many of the other beers in the competition were dark. The Brew-B-Q was the rst of its kind on Kwajalein, though home brewers also compete during the Spring Break Music Festival in April. Teague, who is an avid, self-taught chef, thought combining brew with barbecue would add a little something extra. The pork was prepared with a slow-cook; dry-rub and smoked technique meaning the sauce was served on the side. Pork judges took small tastes of each of the 12 entries, with comments such as “it’s really good,” or “some are very spicy, some are sweeter” and a Residents who attended the Brew-B-Q were treated to eight different beers and 12 varieties of pulled pork. couple of “hard to chose.” Funk, was not only the brewing champion, but also a judge in the barbecue competition. He said between bites, “There’s none that I would throw out.” In the end, using the prevailing criteria of ‘what tastes best,’ there was a winner. Steve Hill’s pork took the top prize, even though he was not personally at the competition. “A lot of people like to cook,” Teague said. Adding many people enjoy the planning and process that goes into feeding a large group. “This is an option for them,” Teague added. Teague expected as many as 300 people for the free event, and was not disappointed as brew and barbecue fans came by throughout the evening. “If we do this again next year, we’ll check for con icts in the schedule,” Teague said. Also on Sunday night was the rst performance of Kaleidoscope of Music. Teague anticipated people would stop by the Vet’s Hall after the show.

Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass work equally well in women. A key problem is even when studies include women, results are not always broken down by gender, making it dif cult to determine whether the ndings apply to women. A new study backs previous research showing that daily aspirin affects men and women differently. A combined analysis of six large studies found that aspirin reduces a woman’s risk of having a stroke by 17 percent, but does not signi cantly reduce her risk of a heart attack. For men, aspirin reduced the risk of heart attack, but not stroke. The results were published in the January issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The six studies analyzed involved more than 95,000 people who did not already have heart disease, but who may have had risk factors. Most study participants were in their 50s and 60s. 6See TAKING CARE, Page 12 Taking care February is National Healthy Heart Month School Advisory Council holds monthly meetingFebruary is Healthy Heart Month and according to the National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease, heart disease is the leading cause of death among women, killing six times more women than breast cancer. Although awareness is growing, it continues to be seen as a man’s disease. In a survey conducted 4 years ago of more than 1,000 U.S. women, only 34 percent recognized heart disease as the leading cause of death in women. When the survey was repeated in 2003, this rose to 46 percent. Even so, most women don’t believe they are personally at risk — only 13 percent of the women cited heart disease as their greatest health threat. Not surprising, since less than 40 percent of the women said their physicians had discussed heart disease with them. Women are also confused about the seemingly contradicting scienti c ndings reported in the media. 63 percent of the women surveyed said they were confused about how hormones affect the heart. Current recommendations for the treatment and diagnosis of heart disease are based on studies conducted primarily on white, middle-aged men. A review of more than 15 years of research concluded that there are not enough data to determine whether many established tests and procedures Hourglass reportsThe North Central Association Accreditation team visit, scheduled for March 1-3, was a primary topic of discussion at the Feb. 15 School Advisory Council meeting. Dan Frazier, superintendent Kwajalein Schools, explained the importance of the NCA accreditation. “Kwajalein School is held to a higher standard than the average public school because we earn our accreditation through the North Central Association.” He added, “Three NCA of cials will be here to review our current school improvement plan and ensure that we are doing all the things in practice that we have targeted on paper. At this point, our school leadership and administration are completely comfortable and con dent in where we are in terms of preparation for our NCA visitors. We have a quality school, and we are sure it will be re ected in our NCA Peer Review.” In other business, four policies passed unanimously. They were: • Policy 2000.07 Line of Authority – which was revised to clarify communication channels between students, parents and other members of the community with school faculty. It was renamed Policy 2000.07 Communication Channels. • Policy 3000.01 School Calendar – was revised to clarify that the school calendar will be recommended by the superintendent no later than January each year. • Policy 3000.08 Child Care Services – was revised to read services are available for resident children age 2 through 6. • Policy 3000.20 Testing Policy – was revised adding exibility for the school to target speci c areas for school improvement and adapt their metrics toward measuring student growth. “Our school needs a policy that outlines the parameters of our testing program in general terms,” said Dan Frazier, Kwajalein School’s superintendent. Frazier reported he attended the University of Northern Iowa Overseas Recruiting Fair in early February. He conducted nearly 50 interviews for the following positions: Junior/Senior mathematics with advanced placement and computers and elementary third and sixth grade teachers.

But most of these studies involved only men. This latest analysis shows the folly of assuming what is true in men must also be true in women. Overall, aspirin reduces the likelihood of experiencing any heart-related troubles (such as heart attacks, stokes and heart disease-related deaths) in men and women. However, when looking speci cally at heart attack, aspirin did not appear to help women. Aspirin, however, was helpful in reducing a woman’s risk of certain kinds of stroke. For ischemic strokes (those caused by blockages in the arteries that supply blood to the brain), aspirin reduced the risk by 24 percent in women. Ischemic stroke is the most common type of stroke. For hemorrhagic stoke (one caused by a burst blood vessel in the brain), aspirin had no effect on a women’s risk. However, aspirin increased a man’s risk of hemorrhagic stroke by 69 percent. The researchers believe the sex difference may have several explanations. First, women experience more strokes than heart attacks, while men experience more heart attacks than strokes. Second, men and women process aspirin differently; women are more likely to experience aspirin resistance, in which a person’s blood does not thin in response to the aspirin. It is important to note these ndings refer only to women who have not had a heart attack or been diagnosed with heart disease. Regular aspirin reduces the risk of dying or having a heart attack in women who have already had a heart attack, been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, or undergone angioplasty or bypass surgery. Taking aspirin during a heart attack is also a lifesaving measure.recerti cation examinations are available for Kwajalein and RoiNamur re ghters. She encouraged community members to submit their ideas for community education courses to her at Upcoming events: • Public meeting for parents and community members concerning the curriculum report will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday in the high school library. • The Elementary Science Fair • Do not cross between the tram trailers at any time • No children under 12 without responsible individual • One beep of horn signals stop • Two beeps of horn signals ready to move forward “The new tram system will make loading and unloading of passengers much easier and safer. With only a single 15-inch step adults and children will have an easier time climbing aboard. Also, loading luggage will be more convenient,” he added. Metelak admits the new tram will take some getting used to and learning the safety rules may take time. A primary safety issue is children on the tram. Parents are asked to educate their children on the safety requirements of riding the tram. If any passengers become unruly, the driver will radio for assistance from the Kwajalein Police Department. The vehicle which pulls the trailers is an aircraft tug, and drivers require special training. Metelak said using this new system will save money. The 4-cylinder engine tug is less expensive to run than the busses and the trailers are primarily plastic and stainless steel so they will have a longer life than the currently-used busses. The tram, with a licensed driver, will be available for rent by private organizations and individual when it is not used for its daily routes.
