Kemem2 COMMENTARIES Investigations show alcohol is target of break-ins See COMMON SENSE, Page 12It’s not profiling, it’s plain common sense It has been a few weeks since my last installment of the Chief’s Corner. The unfortunate business of providing law enforcement is that at times poor decisions are made by people that lead to activity involving violations of established laws and regulations. Recent burglaries, thefts and shopliftings are examples of those poor choices and decisions. Most everybody on the island has heard, through the rumor mill, some account or another of these recent incidents. As your chief, I feel compelled to provide you, the community of Kwaj, some insight to dispel some of the rumors and share the progress of Kwajalein Police Department’s investigation of these recent series of burglaries. First thing is to announce the investigation is ongoing with one of the burglaries yet to be solved, and that the reward of $250 is yet to be paid for information leading to the apprehension of those responsible. KPD has made progress, which has included inquiries leading to confessions of some found complicit. Presently we have made charges of burglary on two persons and theft on one other. Two others were charged with regulation violations relating to alcohol possession and use. Our investigation, though ongoing, has shown that the target of opportunity has been isolated exclusively to the theft of alcohol. Those of you in the community who have been identi ed as victims already have been contacted, but some of our evidence suggests that there may be more victims of these crimes who may not be aware they have been victimized. I encourage all residents to take inventory of their stored alcohol beverages as well as valuables. If you feel that you are a victim, please contact the KPD hotline at 50966. Leave a message which includes your name and phone number. This will enable us to follow-up more ef ciently and determine if your incident may be linked to the events currently being investigated. For those of you who nd yourself victims, I want to put your mind at ease by providing you and the rest of the community, my assurance that we will see this case to its very bitter end. No one in our small, quiet community should have to go to bed at night without the peace of mind that they and their families are safe and secure. On a lighter note, KPD had its holiday party on Nov. 19. It was well attended by both our Marshallese and U.S. of cers along with many family members. Santa even made a grand appearance with plenty of gifts for all. Our Marshallese of cers added a special touch by providing beautiful door prizes of Marshallese handicrafts and blessed us all with songs and the gift of shell lei’s. Thanks to all who helped in the preparation, but special thanks go out to Sandy Herrington for organizing this grand event and to C.J. Kemem who provided the wonderful music to help in our celebration. Until next time, be well, be safe and look out for each other! I guess political correctness has its place, but I’m not too much in favor of it when it might get people killed. I hope the recent incident where six Muslim Imams were removed from a U.S. Airways ight in Minneapolis will not result in misguided calls for more political correctness and sensitivity.According to news reports, passengers waiting for the ight in the boarding area heard the Imams praying loudly to Allah and making anti-Iraq War and anti-American comments. The six Imams then boarded the plane with no carry-on luggage and using one-way tickets. Once on the aircraft, they seated themselves in pairs — two in front of the plane, two in the middle and two in the rear. Now folks, I think anyone who was the least bit observant would have gotten some very nasty vibes from the actions of those six men. When a nervous passenger passed a note to a ight attendant saying she was concerned about the men, the attendant noti ed the captain of the aircraft who refused to leave the gate unless the men were removed. As far as I’m concerned, the passenger, the ight attendant and especially the pilot did the proper (if not the politically correct) thing in that situation. It wasn’t that long ago that British police luckily broke up a plot by Muslim terrorists to blow up ten American aircraft. In view of the dangerous world we live in, how could

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2006 3 of R oc k at the Turkey Bowl Wednesday in the multi-purpose room. k (Photos by JJ Klein and Nell Drumheller)WE’RE TALKIN’ TURKEY BOWLStudents enjoy annual pre-Thanksgiving festivities By JJ KleinReporterWho says you need a rivalry football homecoming game to hold a high school pep rally? Certainly not the students at Kwajalein Junior and Senior High School; they have Turkey Bowl, the KHS tongue-in-cheek answer to homecoming. Typically the Turkey Bowl is a schoolwide assembly featuring skits by students and teachers, talent performances, lip synch routines and a Senior Salute, a cute or comical quip introducing each senior to the entire school body. The 2006 Turkey Bowl, held in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room, was emceed by Senior Catlin Layton and Sophomore Andy Hogan. “The whole thing was terri c,” Social Studies Teacher Ric Fullerton said. “The kids were great.” Ever wonder what a cheerleading squad for the swim team would look like? Layton, fellow Senior Jeremy Beckler and Junior Wardell Harless provided a comical glimpse to that possibility in their spoof of the Will Ferrell and Cheri Oteri Saturday Night Live cheerleading sketches. The self-appointed cheerleading squad of two had the audience laughing with their unique Spartan’s Spirit cheers at an imaginary swim meet. Harless, posing as an exasperated swim team member, tried to get the duo to stop cheering, especially since swimmers can’t hear the cheering when they’re in the water. The arrival of Fullerton’s alter ego, lounge lizard Lance Cragmire, had the student body hooting and hollering as he introduced musical divas Christina Aguilera, Cher and Nicole Scherzinger of the Pussycat Dolls, respectively brought to life by High School Teachers Christina Davis, Lynn Booth and Barbara Bicanich. “I just about fell over when Ms. ‘B’ came out,” Ric Fullerton, a.k.a. Lance Cragmire, the Lounge Lizard, introduces acts in the teacher segment of the Turkey Bowl entertainment. See TURKEY BOWL, Page 4

Hillman’s comedy riff focused on his inability to clearly pronounce ch, sh, g and j, and nding the funny in true moments of his life. “In fourth grade, my friend actually told me I would have won best costume if I had dressed up like a walkie-talkie,” Hillman said, joking about his lisp. Freshman Will Ray’s comedy routine, complete with pocket protector and highwater pants, was a lip synch performance to Weird Al Yankovic’s tune, White and Nerdy Lyrics such as, “Spend every weekend at the renaissance faire, I got my name on my underwear,” had his peers grooving to the beat and laughing simultaneously.

In the tradition of the bard, all female parts were played by young men dressed in, what else, skirts and pompoms. After the assembly, students met down at Coral Sands for an afternoon of games and a barbeque lunch provided by parents of the student body and Kate Lollar, lunch chairperson. Volunteers Joe Brown, Brian Welsh, Carolyn Mills, Ken Dobberstein and Robert Barker worked the grill so teachers could enjoy the day playing with students.A day at the beach paid off for the seventh-graders who spent most of the afternoon creating and sculpting a very colorful Thanksgiving turkey in the sand for the sand sculpture contest. Activities at the beach were organized by Cardale Tademy and Meghan McAndrew, Child Youth Services staff members. A big hit with teens and adults was the Belly

All the events of the day culminated in the erce tug of war face-off among classes. In a double elimination contest, the ninth-graders beat the tenth-graders to win bragging rights around campus until next year’s Turkey Bowl. Bottom line — no one missed a homecoming football game.

Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 See CLASSROOM, Page 12 By Bob SholarKwajalein Running ClubThere were 64 participants at the Turkey Trot 2-mile prediction run on Nov. 20. Three frozen turkeys and eight other awards were handed out immediately after the event. It took some very accurate running to win a turkey at this year’s race. Even a mere three second delta by Ethan Rejto, 6th grade, only produced a runner up award. Kwajalein Running Club’s polished and high-technology timing system kept the results secret until the awards presentation. Brent and Krystal Peterson did quite well as a husband and wife couple, coming close to winning two turkeys. Valerie Hill won the bologna, but only due to magnanimity. Hill spontaneously escorted the eld’s youngest contestant (an insistent 4-year old) who was being let out on the Running Club holds Turkey Trot Nov. 20First place turkey (closest to prediction) Graham Kirchner (8th grade) 16:00 15:59 -00:01 Second place turkey (next closest tie) Brent Peterson (graduate) 13:15 13:17 +00:02 Second place (tie) turkey (next closest tie) Chris Kulig (3rd grade) 20:00 19:58 -00:02 Hot dogs ( rst physical nisher) Brent Peterson 13:17 Liver (last physical nisher) Amy LaCost 40:57 Spam (family with most participants) Brian and Karen Brady and four childrencourse on her own. This slowed Hill’s anticipated time considerably. The Brian and Karen Brady family won the Spam award with six Brady contestants, comprising almost 10 percent of the eld. Appropriately, a can of turkey spam was presented to them.

Prior to Tuesday, there was a waiting list for slots in the morning-only class. By adding an afternoon class, Pang said there is no waiting list and there are 24 children enrolled in the program. “With this second session, there are two Pre-K programs for this age group. These children are one year from entering kindergarten,” Pang said. She added, “We need to have spaces open for high-priority, i.e. military personnel families.” The morning session is from 8:30 to 11:30 and the afternoon session is from 12:30 to 3:30. The decision to open a second class was determined last week by KRS management personnel. “We also ran into an issue of needing to have open spaces for high-priority families,” Pang explained. “And being at capacity with room space and teacher-child ratios, the best way to resolve this issue we thought would be to open an afternoon session.” She continued, “This option will allow us to do the following: provide immediate care for a high-priority family, allow families to increase program time, lessen the amount of children per session and increase the quality of teacherchild interactions. We are hoping that this move is seen in a positive light, as it would have been dif cult for us to cap the registration and displace current families enrolled.” The decision of placement for each child depended Second pre-kindergarten classroom opened to accomodate increased requests to enroll"This option will allow us to do the following: provide immediate care for a high-priority family, allow families to increase program time, lessen the amount of children per session and increase the quality of teacher-child interactions."— Aimee Pang, KRS Central Registration and CDC/School Age Services director

I don’t think they overreacted. If I was on that plane or indeed, any plane these days, I’d be grateful that perceived threats were taken seriously. Our police and security agencies tell us that we citizens are the rst line of defense against terrorist acts. That’s especially true of airline passengers. Ordinary passengers have stopped several possible disasters such as the shoe bomber, Richard Reid, and others by being alert and becoming suspicious. I applaud the passenger(s) who alerted the ight crew to those six men even though it turned out to be a false alarm. How much better is it to be politically incorrect than dead? It’s terribly unfortunate that Muslims are looked upon with suspicion. No, it’s not fair to paint all Muslims with the same brush, but when every terrorist act in the last decade has been carried out by Muslims, it’s hard not to focus on them as a group I would think that even though they might be greatly upset by being scutinized, Muslims would like to be safe when they y as much as anyone else. Do they want to be blown up or crashed into buildings anymore than the rest of us? A Muslim cleric said that taking the Imams off that plane would be like taking Catholic bishops off a plane and searching through their robes. Well, I for one wouldn’t have the slightest problem with that if Catholic bishops had own planes into the World Trade Center, bombed the London and Madrid subways, and had been on the verge of blowing up ten airplanes over the Atlantic Ocean which would have killed thousands of people. Muslim groups are now calling for a boycott of U.S. Airways and of course, there’ll be lawsuits. The Department of Homeland Security Civil Rights of ce has opened an investigation. But just what exactly will they investigate — that a pilot who just wanted to get from Minneapolis to Phoenix that day didn’t feel political correctness or sensitivity was more important than the safety of his plane and his passengers? He should be given recognition for diligence and good sense. He can y a plane I’m on any day. There’s no doubt that Muslims have a terrible problem in the climate of fear that exists in the world today. They have every right to pray, but doing so might provoke suspicion in fellow travelers. Can they pray in such a way as to avoid that? I don’t know. Muslims say they shouldn’t have to change the way they live and the way they practice their religion. No, they shouldn’t have to. But then, 80-year-old grandmothers and 6-year-old children shouldn’t have to be stopped and searched at security checkpoints. None of us should have to take off our shoes and go through the incredible hassle we endure just to get on an airplane. None of us should have to be afraid of terrorism when we travel. But the threat is constant and it’s not going away anytime soon. And, as we have been told so often, vigilance and suspicion are necessary if terrorist acts are to be prevented. That’s the world we live in, and it’s not a world anyone would wish for. But all of us must adjust to the new reality and learn to deal with it, and that includes our Muslim friends. on status and needs. “Opening two classes gave parents an option to choose an afternoon session versus morning,” Pang said. “Some children were moved to lessen the amount of children currently in the morning session. A few parents volunteered to switch, and those parents who had reasons for wanting their child to maintain in the morning session were asked to write an exception to policy letter.” Pang explained that all Army CDCs follow the Creative Curriculum which focuses on different areas of development: Cognitive Development, Social-Emotional Development, Physical (Gross and Fine Motor) Development and Language Development. “Instructors do daily observations on all children and use their observations and children’s interests to help format their lesson plans. Lesson plans are also developed to target specialized learning centers. In each class you will nd the following learning centers: Blocks, Manipulatives (i.e. Puzzles), Art, Science, Library, Dramatic Play, Sensory Table, Quiet Area and an area for music and movement, which all deliver educational value and prepare children for their next level of development,” she said. “Army Child Development Centers are here to support readiness by reducing the lost duty time due to con ict between parental responsibilities and unit mission requirements,” Pang said. “The Kwajalein CDC has opened its doors to the community regardless of their military status. This year we’ve experienced higher enrollment in certain age groups which forced us to look at other options to provide care for everyone desiring it.” For more information on CDC programs, call 55904.CLASSROOM, from Page 6
