We enjoy democracy, abundance unknown by others See LETTER, Page 6 L e t t e r s t o t h e e d i t o r Letters to the editor Resident thinks cost of living on Kwajalein isn't so bad I started thinking just how much we do really pay for living out here. This is what I came up with. No, I am not going to get rich living here, but I can save some money. Before you run from paradise you might want to rethink this whole thing. Here is a list of all of the things that one might pay for in the states each month.1. Rent/house $1,000 Living on Kwaj 1. Food $800 2. Insurance $1,300 3. Phone $50 Total $2,150 By my calculations we save $1,755 each month living out here. I also forgot health insurance in the states. It may be cheaper, but it still costs something wherever you are. One part of a recent exchange in The Hourglass is of particular concern to me—the accusation of intolerance. We must recognize the difference between intolerance and healthy discussion. To equate scrutiny with persecution is to promote unthinking political correctness. Certainly one may believe whatever one chooses to believe (though we are accountable for the choices we make). It is neither necessary for me to agree with your conclusions nor you with mine. Disagreement does not equal intolerance. Neither is stating one’s own beliefs a hate crime against those who hold different beliefs. For example, one person is a democrat and another is Recognize difference between disagreement, intolerance The Thanksgiving holiday reminds us again that we have much to be thankful for and to count our blessings. As a people, we believe and understand that we enjoy the type of freedom, democracy and abundance unseen by the majority of the other countries of this world. Our dreams can become reality while their dreams are just those — dreams. But freedom is not free. For decades, America’s brave men and women have served honorably around the world defending and protecting America’s blessed way of life—liberty and justice for all—for which some have paid the ultimate price. On Friday as you enjoy a warm, happy holiday surrounded by good food, family and friends, I ask you to keep in your hearts and minds those among our families or friends who are stationed far from home, some in hostile territories or even as close as our neighbors on Ebeye. Send them your prayers and, if possible, share your blessings with someone less fortunate than you are at this time. I’m so grateful for my family, health, happiness, a rewarding career serving my country and the opportunity to command at Kwajalein Atoll. I know I have the privilege of leading some of the most committed men and women who are Soldiers, Department of the Army civilians, and contractors any commander could desire. It is the prayers of my family that I extend to you and yours a warm and safe Happy Thanksgiving.

The Kwajalein Hourglass W e d nes d ay, N ov. 22, 200 6 3 Home school students appeal for admittance to school-sponsored activities, calendars submitted By JJ KleinReporterTwo versions of the 2007-2008 school calendar were submitted for review to the School Advisory Council at its public meeting on Nov. 15. The two calendars, called Beta and Gamma, are similar in that both ful ll the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll requirement of 180 student contact days. The school year for both calendars begins the fourth week of August and both include a nine day spring break. The calendars are dissimilar in the number of Christmas vacation days and the date of the last day of the school year. The Beta calendar calls for 13 days for Christmas break, which includes two weekends. There is a 20 day Christmas break on the Gamma calendar, which includes three weekends and does not necessitate the need to travel on Jan. 1. The school year ends during the rst week of June on the Beta calendar and on the Gamma calendar the school year would end the second week of June. The faculty indicated their recommendation by a faculty vote of 33 to nine votes, and one faculty member abstaining, because of absence, in favor of the Gamma calendar. Residents can pick up a copy of the calendars, for review, at Kwajalein high school and elementary school administrative of ces, and are encouraged to contact their SAC representatives not the schools to weigh in with questions, comments and opinions before the Dec. 13 SAC vote. “We are trying to include everyone in the process,” Kwajalein Jr. and Sr. High School Principal Steve Howell said, “and we value everyone’s opinion.” The approved version will be sent to USAKA Commander Col. Stevenson Reed for nal approval and then released to the public. Another key topic for consideration by the SAC council was a request by a resident family for interpretation of the Home School policy 5000.05. The family has home-schooled students attending at least one and up to four class periods at Kwajalein High School. The policy regulates optional services provided to home-schooled students by the Kwajalein school district. The policy states community services such as speech, hearing, immunization, dental and vision checks provided through the school by the hospital are available to home-schooled students. “Other services such as the use of the library, specially equipped classrooms — science and computer classrooms — equipment will be provided on a space-available, noninterference basis, upon approval by the principal. Participation in school-sponsored activities such as dances, clubs, activities, or athletics will normally be approved by the principal on a space-available, noninterference basis.” The family of the home-schooled students appealed to the school requesting their child be allowed to participate in eight or nine high school activities, including a senior page in the school yearbook. A petition, signed by approximately 90 of the 150 high school students requesting that a speci c, home-schooled student be included in the senior section of the yearbook, was presented to Howell. Although Howell did not honor the student petition, he considered each of the family’s requests, approving some and disallowing others. In the case of the senior yearbook page, Howell did not grant the student a page in the y ear b oo k b ut compromise d b y creating a page ‘ Home Sc h oo l Stu d ents Atten d ing Kwa j a l ein .’ o t a win-win situation, ” Howe ll sai d “ You d o o u t h in k is ri gh t an d tr y to d o t h e b est f or t h e s an d t h e community. ” U p c o m i n g e v e n t s : Upcoming events: T h u r s d a y : T u r k e y B o w l Thursday: Turkey Bowl F r i d a y : C Y S p r o g r a m s c l o s e d f o r T h a n k s g i v i n g F r i d a y Friday: CYS programs closed for Thanksgiving, Friday t h r o u g h T u e s d a y V a c a t i o n f o r s c h o o l s c l a s s e s r e s u m e through Tuesday.

Wednesday, Nov. 22, 2006 The Kwajalein HourglassSee ISLANDNOPOLY, Page 124 By JJ KleinReporter“Go directly to jail. Do not pass go.” Hear these words and instantly you’re transported to the game of Monopoly. Kwajalein became a living Monopoly board on Sunday evening as Senior High Youth Fellowship teens raced around the island in a feverish attempt to buy and trade property. Six teams gathered at John and Karen Pickler’s home, YF directors, to participate in the YF-Kwajalein version of Monopoly called Islandopoly. The goal of the Monopoly board game is to buy and sell property in an attempt to build a monopoly of properties and amass nancial wealth. With a roll of the dice, players move a corresponding number of spaces around the game board; wherever they land, players can choose to buy the property. If the property is already owned by another player, then player number one must pay rent to the owner. The player with the greatest amount of nancial assets in property and cash at the end of the game wins. Homes throughout the island suddenly became familiar Monopoly landmarks like Park Place and Marvin Gardens with a Kwajalein twist. Teams raced to various homes; when they arrived they could decide to purchase the property only after successfully performing a team task. If the property was already owned, the team paid the rent due and then hotfoot it back to the Pickler’s to roll the dice and determine their next destination. Landing on a railroad meant teams took a ride on the Jambo Jambo. Landing in jail, teams biked down to the Kwajalein Police Department. Only one team found themselves waiting out their ten minutes in the ‘slammer.’ At Virginia Avenue, otherwise known as Judy Kirchner’s home, the team had to perform the ‘Turkey Pokey’ dance, a Thanksgiving version of the Hokey Pokey, and then fashion pilgrim and Indian vests out of paper grocery bags. Scrubbing the mold off Steve Howell’s cement patio slowed the teams down a bit in this beat-theclock race to accumulate property. Team ve created a rap song to get through the ten minute scrub. “We’re scrubbing mold at the Howell’s House, but we’re not scrubbing till the break of dawn,” sang Tessa Thimsen, team captain, as her teammate Ashley Fritch set the beat, “be-Senior High Youth Fellowship members turn Kwaj into living monopoly board Left, Raul Herrera, Wannetta Corder and Jeremy Beckler try to identify the contents of a dirty diaper; center, Leah Simpson drinks a foul-tasting concoction; right, Jeremy Beckler, Shelley Childers and Lani Brown check out a ‘dirty diaper’ during the Islandopoly game played Sunday night.

(Photo by Sandy Miler) Kwajalein students participate in Pacific Teen Panel video teleconference Nov. 9 By Sandy MillerUSAKA Public Affairs Of cerIn a ceremony last week, the Enniburr School was dedicated after receiving some much-need renovations. “This school not only educates the sons and daughters of our RoiNamur employees, it is preparing our future workforce,” said Col. Stevenson Reed, USAKA commander, in his remarks during the ceremony. “The operations on RoiNamur are important to supporting the national defense of the United States and her allies, including the Republic of the Marshall Islands; a well-educated workforce is critical to this task.” “It is important for the children to have a learning environment that is good and comfortable, such as we witness today in this completed facility,” said Ebeye Mayor Johnny Lemari. “The school would still be closed if not renovated.” Lemari commended USAKA and Floyd Corder, KRS Roi-Namur Operations manager and his crew from Roi-Namur. “Without their help, we would not be here at this very important event.” Lemari encouraged the community to take an active role in maintaining the facility. Other speakers who echoed accolades included Richard Bruce, assistant secretary for administration and logistics and Juliam Riklon, KAHS principal. The Honorable Iroij Senator Michael Kabua also made the trip to Third Island for the dedication. The U.S. Paci c Command provided the $65,000 in funding to allow the renovation of the Third Island School, according to Lt. Col. Jeffrey Klein, USAKA Host Nations director. The U.S. Army’s 29th Engineering Battalion assisted in the demolition of the school, KRS Public Works designed and managed the project, Roi-Namur Operations conducted the refurbishment and the KALGOV and RMI leadership provided support. “It was truly a comprehensive team effort, demonstrating partnership and friendship between neighbors,” said Klein. The school was built by the U. S. government in the 1960s when RMI was part of the U.S. Trust Territory in the Paci c. Rebuilt by the 505th Engineering Battalion, North Carolina National Guard in 1999, the school teaches approximately 300 elementary school-age children. Enniburr School dedicated after renovation By Catlin LaytonHigh school reporterOn island, youth have many unique ways to volunteer their time. The Namo Weto Youth Center, operated by Kwajalein Range Services Child and Youth Services, is the place to discover ways to volunteer and help out the Kwajalein community. This year two juniors, Samantha Larson and Wardell Harless, chose to help out by representing Kwajalein on the Paci c Teen Panel. The goal of the Paci c Teen Panel organization is to bring youth living on U.S. military installations in the Paci c region together to discuss ideas and activities to keep youth active and involved. Fourteen youth represent seven military bases from Alaska, Hawaii, Japan and Kwajalein. The panel meets monthly and takes place through a video teleconference. The Nov. 9 meeting was hosted by the Kwajalein board. To start the conversations, every meeting begins with an opening question. This month, participants were asked “What is your favorite Christmas movie?” “This brings everyone together, and starts out the meeting on a positive note; it is something to get to know everyone better,” Larson said. Once everyone has arrived, they begin telling what events took place involving their youth. Some successful activities included dances, lock-ins, petting zoos, sports and recreational activities. Students trade ideas to get the youth more involved in positive ways. “I can use these teleconferences to get a lot of ideas form the other youth, and speaking with others really helps,” said Kelly Quinn, PTP member from Fort Shafter, Hawaii. After going over the current events, the panel planned its next meeting in December, which will focus on the Mini Youth Leadership Forums held at each of the bases. Larson and Harless will share details of the forum held in September on Roi-Namur, and have prepared a slideshow to show the members. “The leadership forum brought us all closer together. It heightened our awareness about how teamwork helps. You could visually scale how much each team’s individual trust increased in each other,” commented Harless. DeAnn Acosta, PTP leader and Child Development Specialist in Hawaii, said this program “encourages leadership and communication, and is a life skill builder.” By communicating with other youth from different parts of the world, CYS can gain ideas to improve recreational life, volunteerism within the community, and create a more positive atmosphere for the youth on island.

And there are many ways for you to double your odds of succeeding. It starts with planning your quit attempt. Why not give up cigarettes for the day? Maybe forever? Research shows smokers are most successful in kicking the habit when they have some means of support, such as nicotine replacement products, counseling, prescription medicine to lessen cravings, guide books, and the encouragement of friends and family members. Despite that, only about one in seven current smokers report having tried any of By Amanda Curtis, RN and Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRN, Kwajalein Hospitalthe recommended therapies during his or her last quit attempt. Smokers often say, “Don’t tell me why to quit, tell me how.” There is no one right way to quit, but there are some key elements in quitting smoking successfully. According to the American Cancer Society, these four steps are crucial: 1. Make the decision to quit. 2. Set a quit date, and choose a quit plan. 3. Manage withdrawal. 4. Stay quit (maintain success). The American Cancer Society Web site has more information on the latest nicotine-replacement products and cessation strategies, available at a republican. Is it intolerant for the democrat to tell the republican why he believes as he does? Certainly it is wrong to coerce or threaten, but discussing—or even challenging—someone’s conclusion is healthy social interaction. Of course it should be done without belittling or name-calling. As thinking people, we must evaluate the differing worldviews and religions that compete for our loyalty. Giving equal validity to any and all beliefs is inconceivable. To do so places the ideology of the suicide bomber on the same level as the ideology of Mahatma Ghandi. One important way we sort out these divergent ideologies is through discussion. Discussion without coercion—that is tolerance in action. De nition of tolerate: 1. Allow the existence or occurrence of (something that one dislikes or disagrees with) without interference. 2. Endure (someone or something unpleasant) with forbearance. Thank you. A LUNCHEON HONORING NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH WILL BE HELD AT 11:30 A.M., NOV. 29, AT THE YUK CLUB. TICKETS ARE $9.

Teams were told that Baby Landers had gotten into the leftover Halloween candy. The teens then had to look into six ‘dirty’ diapers and identify the contents, which were in fact various melted candy bars. “That was very clever and original,” said Wannetta Corder, a competitive member of team one. “They really utilized their living situation.” The ultimate team challenge took place at Oriental Avenue, also known as high school science teacher Brian Brewster’s home. Biking up to the property the members of team six speculated about the task before them, con dent it would be science related. Think again. The task was more ‘Fear Factor’ than science. Teams pulled numbers out of a container that corresponded to food ingredients, such as wasabi oil, canned peaches, vinegar, seaweed sheets, marshmallows, spam and more. The ingredients were then blended into a chunky, disgusting drink for each team member to gulp down. “At least we get to buy it and don’t have to pay rent,” said Team Captain Leah Simpson eyeing the frothy mixture. “That would suck.” “At least there’s an upside,” joked Team Member Megan Butz. Emily Hendrix’s team two never landed on Oriental Avenue, but one team member was desperate to partake of the Brewster concoction. Justin DeCoster managed to convince his team to pay $550 to go directly to Oriental Avenue, the only property on the game board with a hotel, to partake in the challenge. “Put in everything,” DeCoster told Brewster when team two arrived at Oriental Avenue. “You want your money’s worth,” chuckled Brewster. “Yes, put everything,” DeCoster playfully demanded. The winning team, team one, was J o i n C a f P a c i c f o r Join Caf Paci c for T h a n k s g i v i n g o n F r i d a y Thanksgiving on Fridaythe only team to employ a bit of strategy and put a monopoly together. “I came in with a plan,” Team Captain Jeremy Beckler said. “We bought everything we could at rst.” As the game continued, team one made a deal with another team, trading their Boardwalk and Pennsylvania Railroad properties for Oriental Avenue. Team one’s monopoly of Connecticut Avenue, Vermont Avenue and Oriental Avenue helped put it in the lead with a $3,306 total. For its efforts, the team won a bulging bag of candy only available off-island. “It was fun seeing the kids’ expressions after they came back from the properties,” said AnnElise Peterson, an Islandopoly game coordinator. “I loved seeing the teamwork between the kids.”As a group, the teens were excited to have a unique way to spend a Sunday evening. There isn’t too much for teens to do on the island, pointed out Catlin Layton, team captain for team three, “this was a really creative idea.”
