She never “ uffs” from frustration, but is able to maintain an outward even keel under the most dire of circumstances. She has one of those positions at work that is constantly dynamic and still treats everyone with kindness and respect. On the golf front, she singlehandedly took over for the president of the Kwajalein Golf Association after his untimely PCS and held her position as vice president and president for the year. Ask anyone who participated in this year’s KGA events, and they will tell you that Nast was at the heart.I have a problem with the last article on Page 16 of Saturday’s The Kwajalein Hourglass We advertise Breast Cancer Awareness Month without any decency or respect to women’s privacy. I’m ashamed with all the educated individuals on this island that we are inept and nd it impossible to promote women’s health in a more sensitive fashion. Maybe we should promote men’s health with the same disrespect and decency -Men’s Testicle Awareness Month. I’m sure I am not the only lady on this island who feels this way and strongly believe that all ladies deserve an apology for the insensitive manner in which this edition was published. I am very angry about this.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006Auntie’s estate leads to purchase of much needed toothbrushes Ebeye children get help with dental hygiene 3students at Jabro school on Ebeye Monday morning. (Photo by Nell Drumheller) By Nell DrumhellerEditorA passe l o f Mars h a ll ese stu d ents now know more about dental hyg iene an d h ave b een supp l ie d wit h new toothbrushes thanks to an auntie they never met. Dental Hygienists Judy Shimamo to an d Jan Bu d o o f t h e Kwa j a l ein R an g e Services Denta l C l inic h ave b een p l anning an d p l otting on how to help their young Marshallese nei g hbors protect their dental health. On Monday their plans became reality. “ We f ee l e d ucation is t h e k ey to health. It’s hard for a student to learn any skill without the necessary tools, so we needed toothbrushes for our talks to be effective,” Shimamoto said. And then something unfortunate resulted in something fortunate. “My Aunt Tootie died,” she said. Shimamoto’s portion of the estate was $278.17 and covered the cost of toothbrushes. “I know she would like it used this way because she introduced me to dental oss.” Shimamoto added, “In 2004 a dental manufacturer donated a gross of toothbrushes which was just enough for the third graders at the public school [on Ebeye]. Since then we’ve been trying to get more so we could speak to more children. We have had some small donations but what will allow us to talk with all the third graders on Ebeye is that a toothbrush manufacturer is willing to sell us misprints and overruns at a greatly reduced cost.” Shimamoto, Budo, Daleiana Chong Gum, Dr. Monte Junker, Dr. Jim Schuler and Chris Gamble traveled to Ebeye Monday morning and visited elementary school students at Jabro School, Queen of Peace School and Ebeye Public School. Noda Lojkar, Republic of the Marshall Islands representative, arranged the times with the schools. They focused on educating third and fourth grade students. “Although any age group bene ts from knowing how to care for their teeth, our funding limited us. So we chose third graders because they are at an age where they can understand concepts like germs and health. So we made it our goal this year to talk with all the third graders and hope to be able do this yearly,” Shimamoto said. Both hygienists made presentations, talking about the importance of personal hygiene including hand washing and dental care. “Prevention is always better than repair, and the rst step in preventing dental problems is good dental hygiene. Educating the public and our patients on how to prevent problems is the single most important thing a dental hygienist does. October is National Dental Hygiene Month, so it is appropriate that we do this now,” Shimamoto said. “Hopefully some basic hygiene practices were reinforced: Importance of hand washing and the need to brush daily and not to share their brush. These things will help keep them healthy throughout their lives,” she continued. Shimamoto identified lack of dental supplies as a problem for the Marshallese youth. “The important thing is the knowledge, and we hope that they will do all that they can with what is available. It might come as a surprise to many people to learn that what removes the plaque from your teeth is the brush not the paste. Paste is good because does help but its big contribution is that it almost always has uoride which helps prevent decay,” she said. “It is not uncommon for the dental hygienists here to do educational presentations at the elementary school here both for Kwaj kids and the Ebeye kids who eat lunch at school. We used to talk with the Job Corps kids, the hospital does a diabetic clinic and I’ve spoken there a couple of times. Also, Jan recently had an opportunity to go to Lai, and she took toothbrushes for the entire population. She and I once went to Likiep and took brushes for all the school kids. Next month we will go to Enniburr and talk with all the kids in school there. Ebeye has such a large population and such a great need that we will do what we can,” Shimamoto said. "We feel education is the key to health. It's hard for a student to learn any skill without the necessary tools, so we needed toothbrushes for our talks to be effective."— Judy Shimamoto, dental hygienist

Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006 The Kwajalein HourglassBy J.J. KleinReporterhere was no race to win at the Kwajalein Relay for Life Sunday night. There was, instead, a time for the Kwajalein community to raise money for the American Cancer Society, a time to celebrate cancer survivors and a time to remember loved ones who succumbed to their battle with cancer. The Relay for Life, a worldwide American Cancer Society event held throughout the year with participants in Africa, Honduras as well as the United States, is a celebration of lives affected by cancer aimed at raising funds and raising cancer survival awareness. The Kwajalein Relay for Life 2006 was held Sunday evening through Monday morning to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness month. Fifteen teams, some with names like Guns and Hoses (representing the police and re departments) and Cherie’s Fighters (indicating the group’s desire to ght cancer with i ts monetary d onation), se n t out te am m e m be r s i n 30 -min ute o r hou rl ong s h i f ts to wa lk j og, b icyc l e or ro ll er bl a d e t he loop around Dall y a n d Bran do n Fi elds.

Relay for Life honors survivors of cancer; remembers loved ones who succumbed to their battlesFor a small donation, relay participants and supporters purchased luminaries dedicated to a loved one who died of cancer. The donations went to the American Cancer Society. Each luminary had the name or names of loved ones and sometimes a message attached to it. Luminaries were then lit and lined up along a path creating a memorial of remembrance. “I actually got a little emotional making the luminary; just writing her name down on a piece of paper was hard,” admitted So a Gordon as she spoke of her mother who died of multiple myeloma in 2004. “She was just a beautiful person; she de nitely left her mark. A lot of people love her.” Wearing a T-shirt from a past relay event with the words Kathy’s Krew on the back, Janice Riordan’s eyes misted over with emotion as she talked of her sister.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006her husband, Jack, participated in this relay in memory of Janice’s sister, Kathy. Kathy was 31 when she lost her battle with breast cancer 25 years ago, on Oct. 15, the same day as the relay. No doubt about it, this was a sentimental day. Ask Virginia Mack, who like Riordan, lost her father on Oct. 15 to lung cancer six years ago. Just ve months ago Mack captained a relay team in Dayton, Ohio. When she found out about the Kwajalein relay, she was determined to nd another way to honor her father, Donnie “Mac” MacDonald. “I wanted to jump in and help. It’s a little different here; back in the states you can have car washes and bake sales [to raise money], but nobody has a car here,” she laughed. “That’s why I held a bike raf e.” Mack, with help from friends Bess Buchanan, team captain for the Rollerbladers for Life team representing the Kwa j a l ein Hospita l an d f rien d s an d Lee A ll as, t h e Kwa j a l ei n rela y chairperson, contributed $110 to bu y a Mac y ’s Wes t certi cate g oo d towar d t h e purc h ase an d assem bly o f a bicycle.

Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Children's Halloween costumes should be brightly colored for easy visibility, be reproof, and should not be long enough to cause tripping or falling. Any props such as knives or pitchforks should be soft and exible.Hospital gives tips for a safe HalloweenTaking Care By Amanda Curtis, RN and Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRN Kwajalein Hospital • Help your child pick out or make a costume that will be safe. Make it fireproof, the eye holes should be large enough for good peripheral vision. • Make sure that if your child is carrying a prop, such as a scythe, butcher knife or a pitchfork, that the tips are smooth and exible enough to not cause injury if fallen on. • Children always want to help with the pumpkin carving. Small children shouldn’t be allowed to use a sharp knife to cut the top or the face. There are many kits available that come with tiny saws that work better then knives and are safer, although you can be cut by them as well. It’s best to let the children clean out the pumpkin and draw a face on it, which you can carve for them. • Treating your children to a spooky Halloween dinner will make them less likely to overindulge in the candy they collect. • If you set jack-o-lanterns on your porch with candles in them, make sure that they are far enough out of the way so that children’ costumes won’t accidentally be set on re. • Explain to children the difference between tricks and vandalism. Throwing eggs at a house may seem like fun, but they need to know the other side of the coin as well; clean up and damages can ruin Halloween. If they are caught vandalizing, make them clean up the mess they’ve made. • Explain to your children that animal cruelty is unacceptable. Children may know this on their own, but peer pressure can be a bad thing. Make sure that they know that harming animals is not only morally wrong but punishable by law and will not be tolerated. • As much as your dog or cat may beg for some of your Halloween candy, always remember chocolate is deadly to them in any amount. • The wrappers, such as tin foil, can get stuck in your pet’s digestive tract and make them ill or cause death. There are plenty of recipes for making home made dog and cat treats; you can always make them on Halloween. • Dogs can have lethal tails, wagging all over the place. Don’t leave any lighted candles or jack-o-lanterns where they could be knocked over by a swinging tail or by a curious cat. Not only could your pet start a re, but they could severely burn themselves in the process. • If you are going to dress your pet in a costume, keep in mind that unless the dog or cat is extremely receptive to this kind of thing, you could be causing it discomfort and stress. Some animals don’t mind at all, but others do not want to be bothered with this kind of thing. They’ll be under enough stress with the festivities going on outside and people at the door constantly so don’t cause them any more nervousness than you have to. You may love to dress in costume, but then, you aren’t a dog or a cat. • If you put a mask of some type on your animal, make sure that the eye holes are big enough for them to see peripherally. Animals depend on their vision to let them know what’s going on, and even the nicest dog can get snippy if he can’t see what’s around him. In fact, masks really aren’t a good idea.
