As one of his illustrations, he mentioned that he once had a nickname of ‘Sparky.’ Now, for some reason this called to my mind a song by Kurt Kaiser called Pass It On I have put the verses of the song below as they convey the importance of my thoughts at the time. In my time in the military I have had quite a few different pastors at different locations around the world. I consider it quite a blessing to have received instruction from such a diverse group of scholarly men in the way of the word. I have been very fortunate to have some very good pastors at the churches I have attended.Funk is de nitely one of those godly men I have had the pleasure of meeting and hearing preach. He is dynamic in his delivery and does not use the podium or notes, but gives his sermon from memory. This takes a lot of dedication on his part and I, for one, greatly appreciate that dedication. So, what is in a name? I think Funk’s nickname of Sparky is an apt one if you look at the song below. Funk takes the word and spreads it around to all, starting a re in us to be better Christians and spread his word. I praise God for people such as Funk and those like him who continue to Pass It On.Pass It OnBy Kurt Kaiser1. It only takes a spark to get a re going, and soon all those around can warm up in its glowing. That’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it: You spread his love to everyone; you want to pass it on. 2. What a wondrous time is spring – when all the trees are budding, the birds begin to sing, the owers start their blooming; that’s how it is with God’s love, once you’ve experienced it: You want to sing, it’s fresh like spring, you want to pass it on. 3. I wish for you my friend, this happiness that I’ve found; you can depend on him, it matters not where you’re bound; I’ll shout it from the mountaintop, I want my world to know, the Lord of love, has come to me, I want to pass it on. — Jeffrey BeringerThanks to the generosity of the Kwaj community, the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club 6th Annual Kaleidoscope of Music was a complete success. Not only did we reach our nancial goal for the scholarship, but we rocked the multi-purpose room with live music and the most luscious desserts on earth! A great many thanks go to all who lent a hand for preparation, execution and clean-up of this two-day event. Space doesn’t permit the list of names, but in addition to the 41 performers, we had a tremendous backstage crew, sound and lighting, decorators, servers, an emcee with corny music-related jokes and every one of these people can be extremely proud of their volunteerism. In addition to those who purchased tickets, a huge thanks to Kwajalein Atoll International Sport shing Club for helping us reach our nancial goals. Thanks also to those families who contributed to the scholarship but could not attend the show. The YYWC Kaleidoscope scholarship award is based primarily on service to the community, and these incredible people set a fantastic example for our youth. — Sheri Howard YYWC Kaleidoscope Chair I am very appreciative of the efforts The Hourglass went to in order to provide accurate coverage of the rst-ever ‘BrewB-Que’ event at the American Legion Veterans’ Hall Sunday. Nell Drumheller was there, along with photographer Elizabeth Davie, and spent the time necessary to talk to both competitors and participants. I was very pleased, not only with the advertising performed by The Hourglass prior to the event, but with the resulting article. As noted, we tend to make our own fun in this remote location, and these types of events where many people and organizations chip in to Parishioner praises pastor,offers words of support

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 25, 2006 3 Accreditation means highest school standards By Tarah Yurovchak and Doug Hepler Kwajalein SchoolsOur school system is accredited through the North Central Association of Schools. To be accredited through NCA we must meet its standards, implement a school improvement plan and host an external peer review team. Each year our schools must document, evaluate and report on how we are meeting the standards. Accreditation assures that your child is in a school that meets the highest standards of education and strives to improve to meet the needs of the students. It also means that the credits earned in our school system are recognized and accepted by schools, colleges and universities around the world. The NCA accreditation team will visit Kwajalein Schools Wednesday through Friday to meet with parents, students and teachers. During this time, the visiting team evaluators will evaluate our schools on our school improvement process. We ask that all island residents and stakeholders become familiar with our improvement goals and intervention strategies at both the high school and elementary. High school goal: Students will improve their use of sources of information across the curriculum. In short, the school is implementing new strategies for assisting the students with critical thinking skills, especially in research. These strategies are being implemented in all classes; it is truly an ‘across the curriculum’ effort. All faculty members are involved with the implementation process and all are active participants in the evaluation of the success of student learning under the new goals and the documentation of the children’s work. The Big-6 process is a major development the school hopes will lead the students in a more effective and ef cient way to obtain useful information they need for school projects. Big-6 consists of six steps: Task De nition; Information Seeking Strategies; Location and Access; Use of the Information; Synthesis and Evaluation. Teachers have implemented the Big-6 plan in their classrooms, and the consensus is that much waste has been eliminated when the teachers and students have a solid, generic plan for looking up relevant information. Elementary goal: All students will increase their reading comprehension skills as applied across the curriculum. The essence of this goal is: Students will be able to apply a variety of strategies to comprehend printed material. We have made long strides to increase reading comprehension at the elementary school. The following interventions have been added to help us achieve our goal: • Scholastic Reading Counts and Literacy Lab Our school, with the help of PTO, has purchased a reading program that allows students to take comprehension quizzes on hundreds of books at their reading level. It allows students, parents and teachers to track student progress and reward their hard work at monthly assemblies. A new computer lab was established speci cally for the Reading Counts program. The elementary staff is trying to build capacity in the area of recognizing student achievement in reading by presenting awards and incentives at monthly assemblies. • Modeled/Oral Reading All students receive 75 minutes a week of oral reading and modeled reading strategies to better comprehend the material. Community readers are invited to come in the classroom and expose our students to a variety of reading styles. If you are interested in doing this, please contact Angie Dampier 53601 or e-mail at DampierA@kwajaleinschool.com • All-Day Kindergarten We have two sections of all-day kindergarten and this extended day has given the students more opportunities to have pre-reading instruction. Parents were given the option of half day or full day and 100 percent chose full day. In addition to the ITBS testing, the elementary school has two additional baseline assessments: • A-Z Assessments The primary classes are testing students two/ three times a year for reading improvement. Running records and comprehension quizzes are being taken after students read individualized benchmark books. Each student receives a letter score based on their assessments. Each grade level has an end-of-year goal that they are trying to meet. • Northwest Evaluation Association’s Measure of Academic Progress Students in Grades 2-6 were tested in the fall and will be retested in the spring using this on-line computer generated test that is designed to challenge each individual student to their maximum level. Lexile scores were generated from this test so students are able to choose books according to their correct independent reading level. The Kwajalein Schools look forward to meeting with the NCA team and participating in another successful accreditation cycle. We fully realize that the only constant is change, and since our only agenda is the learning An explosion at 12:10 p.m., Friday, at the Marine Department Dry Dock on Kwajalein killed a citizen of the Republic of the Marshall Islands who was an employee of Chugach Development Corp. Danny Lajouj, 33, was pronounced dead at 12:30 p.m., by Dr. Jill Horner, Kwajalein Range Services Hospital. No one else was injured. The Kwajalein Fire and Police departments responded professionally in less than ve minutes of noti cation of the explosion.An investigation is being conducted to determine the cause.Explosion results in death See NCA, Page 8

Saturday, Feb. 25, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Remnants of warKPD, EOD survey outer islands for unexploded ordnanceBy Elizabeth Davie ReporterMembers of Kwajalein Explosive Ordnance Disposal and the Kwajalein Police Department ventured to the islands of Enbin and Ennumennet Friday to survey the area for ordnance. According to Tom Eisele, lead EOD technician, the trip was in response to the Boy Scouts inquiring about camping on Ennumennet, otherwise known as First Island. “We advised them not to go because we had heard rumors of numerous UXO on the island,” he said. The team traveled on the SR001 to outside each of the islands and was transported to the islands in a zodiac by marine police. The purpose of the trip was to “survey the island,” Eisele said. The team spent approximately 45 minutes on each island. “We found nonexplosive remnants of war as well as numerous small-arms rounds and two expended 47 mm Japanese casings,” Eisele said. That was the rst time I have seem them [47 mm expended casings] just lying around.” Scott Phillips, EOD technician, said. According to Eisele the team also encountered remnants of crater holes and trenches believed to be from World War II. “Due to heavy foliage and undergrowth, an internal survey did not result in many nds; the erosion along the beach is where we gathered most of our data,” Eisele said. “This information is mostly utilized as public awareness in regards to uninhabited islands in the atoll.” “I was very surprised to see all the small-arms rounds on the reef,” Phillips said. “Some islands are safer than others.” According to Eisele, the survey was a cooperative effort by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Safety, EOD and KPD to promote a safe place to work, live and play. “Safety rst, last and always,” he said. As always, EOD reminds r esidents that UXO could be anywhere. If residents encounter possible UXO, they are asked not to touch it, mark the area if possible, call KPD and try to stay available to guide police to the item. EOD would like to thank the Captain and crew of the SR001 for “providing, on numerous occasions, key logistical support during many aspects of our operations,” Eisele said. “Our job is to get people there safely so they can accomplish their mission,” Lt. Mike Herrington, Members of Explosive Ordnance Disposal are transported by Marine Police to outer islands for survey. Expended 47 mm Japanese casings were some of the ordnance found during the day-long survey.

Saturday, Feb. 25, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Don’t touch Leave animal rescue to trained professionals and making a lot of noise. Same as above, animals, particularly wild ones, will generally not showcase an injury or illness. Cats tend to mask illness very well. In later stages of FIV [Feline Immunode ciency Virus], you may see opportunistic infections set in – wounds that don’t heal, oral ulcerations and loss of weight are a few signs that we see in older positive cats.” Even though instinct might suggest trying to help an injured creature when you see it, both Madore and Schwartz strongly recommend leaving the care giving to the professionals. Schwartz said, “Contact the veterinary clinic, either directly or through the hospital. [If you see an injured animal.] Usually the best thing to do is leave it alone. If you have to or are directed to pick up a bird that is injured, toss a towel or blanket over it and scoop it up and place it in a box or carrier; if none are available – pillowcases work very well. Being very careful to not squeeze the chest area of the bird. Birds do not handle stress very well and can die very easily. If the bird starts panicking or panting – back off. It needs to calm down. Never put yourself at risk to be bitten or scratched if you come across an animal.” Madore’s recommendations coincide with Schwartz, “Absolutely call the vet clinic before you do anything. The clinic will make sure the proper authorities are noti ed and the appropriate response given.” While cats may seem benign, Schwartz is clear with how to handle them if encountered outside their homes. “Cats – leave [them] alone. Let pest control pick up cats that you do not know. Cat bites get infected very easily and even if the cat lets you pet it, it may have a different attitude when you try to pick it up and/or put it in a carrier. Approach any animal very cautiously. Any animal can appear to be calm until it is picked up or touched. If it is aggressive, leave it alone,” she said. Some animal behavior can be misleading, Schwartz advised, “Remember, even with your own animals, they may exhibit behaviors that you would never expect if they are injured. Animals that would never bite you on a normal basis may do so very quickly if injured. This is a response to pain and animal behavior generally does not pin point pain to the animal itself, but to its surroundings.” Madore added, “For marine animals you might see a whale or sea turtle just oating at the surface. This is perfectly normal, and it shouldn’t be assumed that the animal is hurt or disoriented. If it’s in distress, it would more than likely be very obvious.” The bottom line, according to both Madore and Schwartz is caution, “Do not get injured; do not attempt to rescue an animal without guidance or the proper equipment,” Schwartz said. Madore chimed in, “Ditto, don’t attempt a rescue unless you are trained and under the guidance of the vet clinic or other proper authority.” For more information on animal care, call Schwartz at 52017. By Nell M. Drumheller Editor Human compassion might lead an untrained person into a potentially hazardous situation. Trying to assist a wounded animal could cause more distress to the animal and may result in injury to the rescuer. “I would not advocate handling any type of animal unless you are trained to do so. For instance, the white tern that was taken in was collected and cared for in accordance with typical rehab procedures. Someone without the appropriate training could harm the animal or themselves,” Cathy Madore, from Kwajalein Range Services Environmental Safety and Health said. There are feral cats, birds, rats and lizards on the island. And in the waters “you have numerous kinds of marine wildlife like turtles, whales, dolphins, etc.,” Madore described. How do you know if an animal is in distress and needs assistance? Jenny Schwartz, KRS registered veterinarian technician, recommended, “Watch the animals’ behavior. A lot of birds and animals will try to mask an injury or illness, and it can be very dif cult to tell if an animal is in need of help. Some birds will also act injured to lure a threat away from a nest.” Madore added, “You might remember that we had an injured dolphin that was taken in and kept overnight until she got her strength back. We knew she was injured because she was listless and was washing up on the rocks. A sea turtle could potentially do the same thing. If an animal doesn’t try to get away from you, it’s pretty much acting against its natural instincts and might need assistance. The white tern that was recently taken in wasn’t injured but we do know that one, if not both, of its parents were killed by a feral cat. So it needed assistance in order to live.” Schwartz gave an example of typical behavior of an injured bird. “We had a bird that was simply not ying away when it was approached; it turned out to have an injury to the wing. It wasn’t hopping around

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 25, 2006 7By Donna Miles American Forces Press ServiceThe arrests of several U.S. Marines charged with stealing and reselling ballistic vests and other military items destined for U.S. troops in Iraq were isolated incidents in a system that works to ensure full accountability of all controlled equipment, a Marine Corps spokesman told American Forces Press Service Thursday. Abuses of this system won’t be tolerated and the violators will be held fully accountable, Maj. Doug Powell, a Headquarters Marine Corps spokesman, said. The Department of Homeland Security announced Wednesday that nine people, including several Marines at Camp Pendleton, Calif., were arrested following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service. Several additional suspects in the investigation are believed to be serving in Iraq, according to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement release. Some of the ballistics vests, stolen from Camp Pendleton, were later resold on the Internet and illegally exported to customs agents posing as international arms merchants, the release said. Wednesday’s announcement followed the sentencing of Erika Jardine, a Vista, Calif., resident, to six months in jail followed by three years of supervised release, a community service obligation and a $6,500 fine. Officials said she sold and illegally exported 18 stolen military ballistic vests to undercover customs agents. Information developed through the Jardine case led agents to several Marines at Camp Pendleton who allegedly sold her smallarms protective inserts, or SAPI plates, and outer tactical vests, officials reported. ICE and DoD investigators began working with the North County Regional Gang Task Force in San Diego to target civilians and military members who possessed or were distributing stolen government property, they said. The Camp Pendleton investigation, lead by NCIS, focused on identifying the amount and type of U.S. military gear being stolen. The goal was to disrupt the operations as quickly as possible to reduce the thefts’ impact on the operational readiness of Marines preparing for overseas deployments, officials said. Ultimately, the investigation identified 12 Marine suspects as well as several civilians, officials said. More arrests are expected as the investigation continues, officials said. The Marines involved will be held fully accountable for the actions, Powell said. “This type of activity will not be tolerated,” he said. The theft or resale of militaryissued items is not only a violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, but also a breach of the Marine Corps ethos, officials said. The investigation also resulted in the recovery or purchase of more than $63,000 in equipment. It included 104 SAPI plates, worth $500 each; 14 outer tactical vests, worth $577 each; seven Kevlar helmets; three fragmentation vests; 74 M16 magazines; two gas masks; and more than 100,000 Iraqi dinars, officials reported. The Marine Corps works to ensure accountability of military equipment through a system that includes bar coding of equipment, quarterly inventories and periodic field audits by the inspectors general, Powell said. While acknowledging the gravity of the case, Powell said the thefts had no impact on Marine Corps readiness. The thefts identified represent “a fraction of 1 percent” of all protective equipment the Marine Corps has fielded, he noted. So far, the Marine Corps has sent more than 240,000 SAPI plates and more than 190,000 outer tactical vests to the field, he said. But Immigration and Customs Enforcement Assistant Secretary Julie Myers said the case flies in the face of the effort to ensure deployed U.S. troops have all the protections they need while serving overseas. “At a time when our troops in Iraq need all the body armor they can get, it is extremely troubling to see bulletproof vests destined for those troops being stolen from our military bases at home for resale to the public,” she said. “It is even more troubling that individuals would try to sell these items for profit to people they believed were international arms dealers.” Ed Bruice, spokesman for the NCIS, said the case “goes straight to the heart of force protection.” “We will continue to partner with ICE and other agencies around the world to safeguard our troops, especially those on the front lines who are depending on gear such as these vests to save their lives,” he said.It’s a crimeU.S. Marines charged with stealing, reselling ballastic vests, equipment

In Her Shoes Curtis Hanson’s adaptation of Jennifer Weiner’s novel In Her Shoes stars Toni Collette and Cameron Diaz as a pair of very close but very different sisters. Free-wheeling irresponsible Maggie Feller (Diaz) gets through her life thanks to her remarkable looks and her lack of scruples. She constantly goes to her straightlaced, plain-Jane successful lawyer sister Rose (Collette) for nancial help. The two sisters have been very close to each other in part because their troubled mother died when they were girls. Right about the same time that Maggie discovers hidden letters that reveal she and Rose have a grandmother, Maggie does something to betray Rose’s trust. Maggie sets off for Florida to nd the grandmother. A failed workplace romance forces Rose to rethink her career, a career that has been the center of her life. A History of Violence David Cronenberg directed this screen adaptation of a graphic novel by John Wagner and Vince Locke which explores how an act of heroism unexpectedly changes a man’s life. Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) lives a quiet life in a small Indiana town, running the local diner with his wife, Edie (Maria Bello), and raising their two children. But the quiet is shattered one day when a pair of criminals on the run from the police walk into his diner just before closing time. After they attack one of the customers and seem ready to kill several of the people inside, Tom jumps to the fore, grabbing a gun from one of the criminals and killing the invaders. Tom is immediately hailed as a hero by his employees and the community at large, but Tom seems less than comfortable with his new notoriety.

COVERAGE, from Page 2 make sure the event comes off without a hitch, all for the love of community, are what makes some of the not-aslikeable things about a remote location pale to relative insigni cance. Special thanks are also offered to the participants, and to the American Legion Post 44 for hosting the event and providing many needed items for the competitors. Noble and Stacey Kaluhiokalani were both instrumental in preparing, organizing, and serving the items provided by Post 44. In case anyone is wondering, there was a People’s Choice competition amongst the brewers in addition to the judged competition, with the following results: third place, Alan Taylor’s ‘Triple B’ (Blackened Brutal Bitter); second place, Mark Long’s ‘Mark’s Marvelous Medicinal Milk Stout’ and rst place, Jim Cossey’s ‘Burning River Pale Ale.’ The pulled pork barbecue judged competition results were: Third place, Jerry Leverett; Second place, Bud Teague; and rst place, Steve Hill. I sincerely hope to continue participation in community events such as this. — Bud Teague Softball Monday 5:15 p.m...............................................MissDemeanors vs. PoHos at Ragan Field
