Guest program grade six students say thanks to allYokwe from the 6th Grade English as a Second Language and Guest Program Students at George Seitz Elementary School. We would like to thank a lot of people for helping us students throughout our elementary school years. We would like to thank our parents for always taking care of us and for their support in and out of school. We also thank our family members and friends for their support and help during school. We want to thank teachers, administrators and staff members for teaching and helping us when we struggle. Also for helping us outside of school activities, Halloween activities, coaching sports, the end of the year party, homework club and everything else. We would like to thank PTO for fun activities they planned for us, especially for the end-of-the-year party for the guest student program. Finally, we would like to thank the community for donating money for lunches for the guest students. Thank you all very much for your support. — Sepe Sawej, Justin Furgeson, Shawn Lemari, Curtis Lojkar and Luke Langmos How many of you are old enough to have heard of and remember Catherine ‘Kitty’ Genovese? She was an ordinary young woman who liked music and dancing. She was interested in history and liked to debate politics. She stood ve feet, one inch tall and weighed 105 pounds. In the early morning hours of March 13, 1964, she was attacked by a man outside her Queens, New York apartment building. He stabbed her repeatedly as she cried out for help over and over. Only one person in the building opened his seventh oor window and yelled at her attacker. The man ran off, but no one came outside to help the severely injured girl. Her assailant returned and began stabbing her again. She screamed and begged for someone to help her, but no one came. The man left once more, but unbelievably came back, and this time sexually assaulted the dying girl and then killed her. At least 38 people in the surrounding buildings had heard her cries for help. Some could see what was happening. No one ever came outside. After more than 35 minutes had elapsed since Kitty’s rst screams, only one neighbor called the police. They arrived in three minutes. Three minutes. The incident made national and world headlines. Everyone the world over wondered how it could be no one had helped that poor girl. It took place 42 years ago, but the ‘don’t get involved’ mentality exists today just as much if not more as it did then. Why do there have to be ads on TV about people staying silent and not doing anything when they know a neighbor, a co-worker, or even a relative, is being beaten, sexually abused or is in real danger of being killed? When I hear about women being abused by their husbands or boyfriends, I always wonder where are the brothers, fathers, co-workers or other men in those women’s lives who could put a stop to it. I guarantee you, if I had a daughter or sister who was being abused by a husband or boyfriend, he wouldn’t be breathing 30 seconds after I got to him. I can see how women might be afraid to do something, although sometimes women are a hell of a lot braver than men, but how can a man who is really a man sit by and do nothing if he knows of such a situation? How can you call yourself a man if you do that? I’ve unfortunately known of a few instances of abuse and I can tell you that when confronted by someone who weighs as much as they do, can throw a punch as hard as they can, and is able to ght back, most abusers are meek, little cowards. After all, it doesn’t take much of a man to beat a woman or abuse a child. There’s a scene in the movie, Gettysburg in which a Soldier is cowering during the battle and an of cer says, “Get up and ght son, or what will you think of yourself tomorrow?” That’s a question everyone needs to ponder. If we knew of an abuse situation and did nothing about it, what would we think of ourselves tomorrow?

jg y,, the sand,” Sims said. Two years ago, 20 dump truck loads of sand were brought to Emon Beach to cover the exposed rocks. “At that time, we did not push any of the sand above the high tide line down, and we did not move any of the sand from the north end of the beach. We will probably need to continue with a regular beach maintenance program in the future if Mother Nature keeps shifting the sand,” Jazwinski said. As with all projects, safety is a key. “There will be lots of heavy equipment working in the beach area during the day for a period of about three weeks. The work areas will be roped off and should be avoided by all beach users. Residents should not sh in the Emon Beach area until July 15. Any disturbance of the water bottom may increase the likelihood of a ciguatera outbreak. The eating of sh caught in this area and immediately adjacent areas should be avoided during this time,” Sims said.3 Beach gets good grooming A lifeguard stands watch over Emon Beach at the 2005 Independence Day celebration. By Nell M. Drumheller EditorBy Independence Day Emon Beach should look a lot less rocky and a lot sandier. Sand is being moved from points of accumulation to the areas experiencing erosion according to Ken Sims, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Environmental of ce. “The waves and currents at the beach over the last several years have caused a slow loss of sand in the center of the beach,” Stan Jazwinski, Kwajalein Range Services Liquid Systems manager, said. “Beach sand migration can be a complicated process, but it appears that some of the sand from the beach may have been deposited above the high tide line when we had west winds last year and the year before. Large waves from the west may have also caused the beach to increase in length. Sand also appears to be migrating along the shoreline toward North Point. In fact, it looks like a very small beach may be forming along the rocks about halfway between the point and the beach. Some of the sand could also be moving into deeper water off of the beach,” Jazwinski added. The sand is being moved to cover exposed rocks. Environmentally speaking the project is A-ok. “We have coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service, and the RMI Environmental Protection Authority on site to ensure the project is planned without adverse impacts to sea turtle nesting habitat, migratory birds, sh resources, and coral habitats. The sand will be moved and placed while always working above the water mark down to low tide,” Sims said. Emon Beach is a popular recreational area on Kwajalein. The work will temporarily affect some of the use of the area. “Portions of the beach that are not cordoned off are open to the public and will be guarded according to the normal hours of operation. All the pavilions are unaffected and can continue to be used. The community is asked to respect all barricades, caution tape and stay away from heavy equipment working in the area,” Simone Smead, KRS Community Activities manager said. Approximately 700 cubic yards of sand will be moved using loaders. Jazwinski added, “We are moving the sand from the north end of the beach, and the sand above the high tide line to the center of the beach to cover the exposed rocks. We will use a bar screen and a trommel screen to reduce the amount of tree and plant roots in the sand as we move it.” “This work is temporary since the sand could erode again. USAKA and KRS are looking at long term solutions to the erosion problem to include adding another

(Photos by Nell Drumheller) By Nell M. Drumheller EditorSchool-age children have a place to hang this summer and it’s an adventure. The program, facilitated by the Kwajalein Range Services Child and Youth Services, is divided into two groups: Camp Adventure for youths in Grades 1 – 6 and Youth Adventure for young people in Grades 7 – 12. The program is eight one-week sessions. The minimum sign-up period is one week. The program is available for Kwajalein young people as well as family members of C-badge workers from Ebeye. There are slots for 125 children each week, with 50 of those slots available to young people from the Republic of the Marshall Islands. According to Meghan McAndrew, RMI young people may participate in the program for two-week intervals. There are 30 RMI slots in the Camp Adventure program each week and 20 RMI slots in the Youth Adventure program. “This means that every two weeks we are able to have 50 new RMI participate in the program, so theoretically, we are able to reach 200 RMI youth through our summer programs,” McAndrew said.There are three summer-hire employees and seven camp counselors working in the program. The camp counselors come from across the country and are known to the young people by pseudonyms. “They have nick names and are the seven dwarfs. Each summer

The kids really get into it and have a good time trying to nd out their real names.”The seven dwarfs range in age from 20 to 27 and have either graduated or are attending a college. “Camp Adventure is a program that’s based out of college campuses all over the United States. It’s headquarters is in Iowa at the University of Northern Iowa,” McAndrew said.The purpose of the program is “To provide a fun lled summer for the youth who do not go off island at this time. It also takes the place of the before and after school that CYS provides during the school year,” she explained. The program offers a variety of activities, both indoor and out including eld trips, swimming, games, clubs such as cooking, drama, arts and crafts, sports, etc. On one day the group might be playing volleyball or dodgeball or be swimmimg be at the pool or at the multi-purpose room playing games, reading or showing their creative sides with an art project. McAndrew said there are slots available for upcoming weeks, “Parents sign their children on a per week basis. There are no daily sign-ups, only weekly.” The program began on Tuesday and continues through Aug. 5.

Saturday, June 17, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Look right — stay left! Kwajalein residents share By Lauren Traweek Part two We arrived in Blenheim after dinner at dusk, just in time to nd the vineyard where our darling cottage was located. The cottage is a romantic retreat with a huge four-poster bed snuggled at the edge of the vineyard which is surrounded by mountains. We were greeted by our hostess and a chilled bottle of their Chardonnay. We were provided with bicycles to explore the vineyards in the Marlborough region. Billy cleverly mapped a route that started with the farthest vineyard on our list. We tasted our way back toward our cottage, stopped and had delicious tapas, and tasted more wine and finally wobbled home for a nice nap. We picked up our purchases at the various vineyards as we drove down to Kaikoura for our next stay. The rst half of the drive was blissfully straight, the weather warm and sunny and deceptively benign. As soon as we neared Kaikoura we encountered a rocky, rugged coastline, a matching road and surprisingly cold, gusty weather. We stopped and watched our rst seal pod. There were about 20 baby seals in a shallow pool on an outcropping of rocks. Several nanny seals babysat while the mothers shed for the group. Nobody seemed cold except Billy and me. Kaikoura is Maori for, essentially, ‘eat lobster,’ and the coast was dotted with little ‘caravans’ or trailers selling freshly caught and steamed lobsters for a reasonable price. Billy made sure we grabbed a couple on the way to our next B & B. Our latest accommodation was possibly the most dramatic place during our stay in New Zealand, even more so than the glaciers – because of the constantly changing weather and panoramic views. Of course, with the view comes the scary driveway. We had reservations for a dolphin encounter and a whale watch trip, our adventure number four. This is such a popular attraction that reservations should be made before you arrive in New Zealand. Unfortunately, the wind clocked out of the south and an Antarctic express roared up and lashed Kaikoura with a gale. The next day we awoke to snow-capped mountains and monstrous seas. The nice ferry we had taken across tried to cross in 13 meter seas. Cars broke loose, people broke bones and a eet of ambulances had to meet the ferry when it landed in Picton. All encounters were off until the seas settled down. Meanwhile we from Kwajalein were totally unprepared for the cold. The proprietors of our B&B lent us ski parkas and gloves. We walked and drove and played a lot of cards. I got caught up with our laundry and we drank tons of coffee and watched the seals. Finally, after two days the weather broke and we had a little window to do the dolphin and whale thing. The water off the coast of Kaikoura is unusually deep and fertile. There are permanent dolphin pods that are free to come and go as they please. A very strictly limited number of people can go out to interact with the dolphins. Only two boats, and 13 people to a boat, are allowed at one time. You suit up (more 7 mm wet suits) at the Dolphin Encounter building and board buses to the boats. Once on the boat, you have about a 15-minute ride out until you see the great pods of dolphins. These are Dusky dolphins – a small pretty dolphin that looked hand painted. Hundreds show up, ready to be entertained. At the briefing before the encounter you are advised not to touch the dolphins, but to encourage interaction with you by making squealing noises and swimming in circles. I’m sure we delighted the boat crew as well. Try to get the picture … 13 adults (Germans, French, Australians and Americans) are suited up with wet suits, snorkels, masks and ippers at the stern of the boat poised to jump in 18 degree water (64 degrees Fahrenheit) with a three meter swell at the sound of a crew member’s whistle. We collectively gasp at the cold shock and then proceed to act like the 13 competitive fools we are. We surely must amuse the dolphins. They swim very close. Some are individuals, who really eye you, and sometimes they are like a river that parts around you. We do three plunges of about 20 minutes each between repositioning the boat, and then out of the water for good. After toweling off and struggling into dry clothes in front of the

It seemed very tame after the interactive dolphins, but we did get to stay dry and warm. After about a half hour we come upon a sperm whale. He is a local whale dubbed Te Mata. They believe he is 35 and has lived there since he was young. The females bring the young males to the Kaikoura canyons to live separately until the males turn about 40 and are ready to breed. He was very obliging, spouted several times, and dove with his beautiful tail turned toward the boat. Several albatross glided by and a seal played in the wake. We left the next morning for an 8 hour drive southwest to the glaciers. We stopped and walked up to a grand view of the Franz Josef glacier, and drove on to check into our chalet at Fox Glacier. A second storm system from the south kept the glaciers shrouded in mist and fog. After we had dinner we listened to the rain thrash the trees and we felt sorry for the guests in tents and trailers. That morning, before the rst light I could hear the strangest sounds on the roof; lots of scrambling and what sounded like bickering children. When I peeped through the drapes, I could see very large birds scuf ing over somebody’s boat cover parked on a trailer. By the time the sun was up we could see an entire ock of wild Kea parrots that had come down from the mountains to raid the campground. The rain had stopped long enough for us to make the trek to the base of Fox Glacier, but started up before we could complete adventure number ve: heli-hiking. The helicopter drops you half way up the glacier in the snow where you frolic for a couple of hours, and then they land and take you back. This is only weather permitting so it was a no-go. With that, we packed up and hit the road in search of better weather and more fun. We were on our way to Queenstown when we passed a sign for bungee jumping at the Kawarau Bridge. Okay, I thought, might as well get this over with! We turned around and drove up at about 4 p.m. The last jumpers were getting cheered on and Billy wanted to have a beer and just watch for a while. I knew that if we watched I would chicken out. I let momentum carry me through the weigh-in and the walk out to the jump platform in the center of the bridge. Billy followed along, not entirely sure he was ready but wanting to support me. The jump guys wrapped a towel and the strap around both of my ankles and had me hop to the edge, 43 meters above the water. “Look up, smile and jump at the count of three” was the last thing I heard before I swan dived into the abyss. “I’ve made a horrible mistake” was the next thought that crossed my mind as I began to scream. I couldn’t stop screaming until I stopped boinging up and down. The boat rowed out to receive my inert body as it was lowered upside-down, like spider prey into the bottom. “Cool” was my second thought, “I survived!” That made it all worthwhile. Billy made a seated harness jump due to his knees being so bad. It took two counts of three, two, one, but he nally submitted and went over. What a great introduction to Queenstown, the thrill capitol of the universe. We checked into our next B&B. It sits high on a cliff at the end of a, you guessed it, death defying driveway overlooking the Shotover River. Our room had a balcony over the rose gardens and very comfortable accommodations. After breakfast we signed up for adventure number six – jet boating down the Shotover River at crazy breakneck speeds, spinning in tight 360’s and careening toward rocks, only to pull up short by inches. The jet boats are 5.30 meters long and are powered by twin V6 Buick engines and twin jet units. But that was nothing, compared to adventure number seven…tandem sky diving from15,000 feet. Billy, who can’t jump because of his knees, had to live vicariously through me. He booked me for an afternoon jump, complete with photos and DVD. After our in-town brie ng at the company headquarters, we took a van to the air eld where Billy met us. The company’s logo is ‘embrace the fear.’ Well, embrace I did, until I met my jump partner, Peter from the Netherlands. Peter was very tall – so tall that he replied he was two meters when I asked him. It occurred to me that I was going to strap a two meter Peter to my back and jump out of an airplane. This visual and Peter’s quiet con dence plastered a grin on my face and completely calmed me down to the point that I could actually leave the plane. We had to breath oxygen from masks after 10,000 feet and we were the rst to go in our little group. It was absolutely gorgeous once I could wrap my mind around the fact we were hurtling toward earth and we were still above the clouds. Suddenly we broke through and saw the rivers and hills.

Hungover, has-been cop Jack Mosley (Bruce Willis) has seen better days, and all that the force expects out of him these days is to stay out of trouble while he’s on the clock. Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) is set to testify before a grand jury at 10 a.m. and it’s up to Mosely to make sure that Bunker makes it to the courthouse in one piece a job that Mosely estimates will take a maximum of fteen minutes. A black van has been trailing the pair unnoticed though, and after stopping off at a nearby liquor store to pick up some breakfast, Mosely emerges from the store just in time to save Eddie from the lethal bullet of a determined assassin. When backup arrives in the form of Detective Frank Nugent (David Morse), Mosely quickly realizes that the detective on Nugent’s team is the same cop that Bunker is set to testify against. Now faced with the tough task of dodging bullets and eluding a massive onslaught of corrupt cops, Mosely must keep Bunker alive long enough to get him before the judge and ensure that justice is served. Fun With Dick and Jane A not-so-ordinary family nds a new way of paying the bills in this comedy. Dick Harper (Jim Carrey) and his wife, Jane (Ta Leoni), would seem to have it made — Dick has a high-paying job, they live in an expensive house in the suburbs, they have two luxury cars in the driveway, and a housekeeper, Blanca (Gloria Garayua), to help look after their son, Billy. But Dick and Jane’s fairy-tale life crashes head-on into reality when the rm Dick works for turns out to have been using unscrupulous accounting methods to disguise the fact they’ve been losing money hand over st, and Dick has been made the fall guy for some of their dirty dealings. Suddenly at broke, Dick and Jane must nd a new way to support their lavish lifestyle, and in time they discover just the thing — crime.

This was absolutely the most radical thing I have ever intentionally done! That was the end of our planned adventures. It was de nitely time to chill out and spend the rest of our vacation without any anticipation of the next escapade and without worrying if I’ll survive. That night we sat in the hot tub under the stars with the full moon glinting on the river. We were pretty satis ed with ourselves. The next day, March 10, we went to a cute town called Arrowhead. Arrowhead is an old gold mining town with a pokey gold mining museum and some shops down Main Street. After a slow day shopping and sight seeing we were headed back to our room, one day before we turned in the rental car to y to Christchurch, our last stop before heading home. As we slowed, and signaled to turn into the driveway we were rear-ended by a woman who never hit her brakes. We spun around and luckily we were knocked into the gravel driveway, and not into oncoming traf c. She was not hurt, and we were only dazed. We returned the car, lled out more forms and Billy decided we should have one last adventure – a small plane ride over the Southern Alps past Mount Cook to the glaciers. We had a break in the weather and we missed heli-hiking, so Billy thought this would be a nice relaxing end to our vacation and a great way to see the Alps. Nathan, our pilot asked who in our group of ve wanted to sit up front with him. “Lauren does!” said Billy, pushing me up. Alright, I’ll go one way and somebody else can have it on the way home I thought. As Nathan strapped me in, I noticed we only had one propeller. Does one propeller mean one engine? Yup, it does! I was warned not to touch the co-pilot foot pedals or the steering wheel under any circumstance. I sat frozen, knees practically under my chin and my hands under my legs. As we trundled down the grass runway Nathan began a running stream of conscience chatter that didn’t end until we landed, hours later. The rst thing I noticed is I had to use the restroom about ve minutes into the trip, but there wasn’t anywhere to pull over. The next thing I noticed was that Nathan, while pointing out different lakes, had his map out, holding it over the windshield. One of my pet peeves is people who drive and read maps. When he additionally took out his cell phone, talked on the radio while reading the map, steered with his thighs and tried to reach his wife, I thought I would have to slap him! After we ew past stunning Mt. Cook and over the glaciers, we decided not to land for lunch, as we might not have a window to y home in. The sky was rapidly lling up with black clouds and we had to ght a headwind all the way back. Nathan climbed to 13,000 feet for most of the way to avoid the more extreme turbulence, but we had plenty. The best part of that trip was climbing out of the plane and standing on solid ground. So much for relaxing! On March 12 after a quick ight to Christchurch, we checked into our last hotel, had a nice lunch and stroll around town. The next day we rode the incline and visited Willowbrook Wildlife Center, where we finally got to see live kiwis in their natural habitat. Our closing thoughts about New Zealand are that it’s a great place to check those boxes if you’ve ever entertained the notion that you’d someday like to skydive, swim with dolphins, bungee jump or any other crazy stunt you can think of. The scenery is simply magni cent and always changing. Had we had more time and money, we would have liked to do a month on each island, not two weeks each. We were never bored, but rather stayed at the edge of our seats the entire trip either driving, standing at whatever B&B we’d booked, looking at the view or having our next adventure. Many people rent large travel trailers and stay at campgrounds, especially when traveling with children. We can’t imagine navigating some of the roads driving something that large, so we went for an upgraded car for more engine power on the mountain roads and stayed at B&Bs wherever possible. There are Web sites available to nd great B&Bs. We weren’t disappointed in any of them. We were surprised how long it took to drive relatively short distances. The roads are often twisty two laners that take a lot of time and attention. Although we were there at the end of their summer season, which is December through March, we were not prepared for a cooler climate. The little sundresses and shorts really weren’t appropriate except for several days in Russell. New Zealanders are, for the most part, gregarious people, and happy to see you, and for once – language isn’t a problem! The exchange rate was pretty favorable while we were there, and we even looked at different areas with an eye toward retiring there someday. If it weren’t for the cold weather and cold water and long distance from the states, we would seriously consider it, especially from Auckland north to the Bay of Islands. We highly recommend New Zealand and encourage all who have wondered – GO!
