I can remember, as a child, Christmas was not a day when my sister and I opened up a lot of presents because we did not receive a lot of presents, but we were always happy — there was always joy, laughter and love in our home. My mother would cook a great feast that we couldn’t wait to eat. I always attempted to out eat everyone, but my eyes were always larger than my stomach, and I never beat my father. I have a family of my own now, and they each have gifts with their names on them every year. Even my dog receives a gift during the Christmas holiday. I believe Christmas is not always about receiving presents, I receive joy in knowing that my family is happy. In the end, Christmas is to me a real celebration of family, life and religion. In addition to the normal shopping madness, I go the extra mile. I really enjoy Christmas music, and Kwajalein has truly provided a superb amount in the form of the Community Choir and the Holiday Concert I attended a few weeks ago. If you did not attend those events, you really missed a treat. As the holiday season arrived, I watched and marveled over the quality sound of the Community Choir and the superb celebration of the community during the arrival of Santa and the Tree lighting Ceremony. However, I did notice that there weren’t many males in the Community Choir, so one day I was joking with Dick Shields that next year I am going to join the choir (no, because I can’t carry a note). I noticed the largest smile appear on his face; I guess he thought he had recruited another male into the choir (not). Yes, joy comes to many in different forms and many different ways. It is my wish that I share with you my happiness, joy and peace of the holiday season. The absolute best Christmas season is the one in which I have completely prepared in advance. I buy all my Christmas presents prior to the rush and wrap them separately in appropriate paper…unfortunately, that has not happened yet in my adult life. So amidst the coming frenzy of last minute shopping, I will make time to pray and re ect on how good God I am Donald J. Serra. I mention this up front because I am getting a little peeved at The Hourglass policy of publishing letters that seem to lecture all of us who live here on matters relating to religion, patriotism, parenting, home schooling, alcohol consumption, etc., etc., but do not publish the name of the author of the letter. If these persons have any conviction in their opinions, then their letters would have more value if they sign them. Is it possible that one person is writing all of these published letters? The recent commentary about “respect the ag” spurred As many people do, in the mornings I stop by Sunrise Bakery to buy a cup of coffee and occasionally a chocolate chip cookie. And, like many people, I truly appreciate the hard work and friendly atmosphere that the people who work behind the counter provide. However, I’ve noticed on the bakery’s entrance that the bakery will be open to sell coffee and pastries from 7 a.m. until noon on Christmas Day. Maybe it’s just me, but in keeping with the holiday spirit, I believe that it would be a nice Christmas gift Bakery should have day offSee BAKERY, Page 20


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 23, 2006 Hourglass reportsRobert M. Gates was sworn in as the nation’s 22nd secretary of defense in a ceremony at the Pentagon Monday. After President Bush introduced Gates as “an experienced and thoughtful leader,” Vice President Richard B. Cheney administered the oath of of ce. Gates was of cially sworn in at the White House earlier Monday in a private ceremony. The following is Gates’ acceptance speech. It is an honor, and a humbling responsibility, to take the helm of this department in a time of war and to lead men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting our country. In the coming weeks, I will visit some of the key military posts and commands at home and abroad, as well as consult with this department’s senior civilian and military leaders and staff. I look forward to meeting and hearing from the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who are the true heart and strength of America’s armed forces. As the president has asked for my unvarnished advice, I expect the same of you. Over the years of leading big institutions, I have learned something important: leaders come and go, but professionals endure long after the appointees are gone. The key to successful leadership, in my view, is to involve in the decision making process, early and often, those who ultimately must carry out the decisions. I will do my best to do that. This department is always engaged in a host of different activities that aid our nation’s defense. All are important; all are valuable. The most important issue we face is the situation in Iraq. By removing the brutal and dangerous regime of Saddam Hussein, and by confronting the extremists and insurgents who have sought to derail any progress since, the United States and our coalition partners have provided the Iraqi people a unique opportunity to have a decent future. The violence in Iraq must be contained and reduced. Failure in that part of the world would be a calamity that would haunt our nation, impair our credibility, and endanger Americans for decades to come. A successful outcome in Iraq, one that will help protect our nation and serve her long-term interests, will require all elements of American’s national power to work more effectively together, in cooperation with allies 3New boss man Robert M. Gates takes charge at Pentagonand partners in the region. Afghanistan has made great strides since being liberated ve years ago, but that progress is now at risk. The United States and our allies have made a commitment to prevent the Taliban from taking over Afghanistan again. We intend to keep it. How we face these and other challenges over the next two years will determine whether Iraq, Afghanistan, and other nations at a crossroads will pursue paths of gradual progress, or whether the forces of extremism and chaos will become ascendant. As we address these challenges, it is important that we carry forward the process of what has been referred to as defense transformation. President George W. Bush made it a priority at the beginning of his administration to help our military become more agile, more lethal, and more expeditionary. Much has been accomplished; much remains to be done. This task remains a necessity and a priority today. It is also essential that we make every effort to ensure that tax dollars are spent wisely and carefully, and we continue to maintain and enforce ethical standards of doing business. In a department as large as this one, neither task will be done perfectly, but it is important that we strive to do our best. Our country is at war. I take this job with the knowledge that my decisions will have lifeand-death consequences for America’s troops, as well as their families. I have accepted that responsibility and I will never forget it. To all of the men and women of the U.S. military: you serve in the nest traditions of those who have worn this nation’s uniform these past 230 years. It is a high honor to serve with you as secretary of defense. May God bless you and may God bless the wonderful country we have sworn an oath to protect.“Our country is at war. I take this job with the knowledge that my decisions will have life-anddeath consequences for America’s troops, as well as their families. I have accepted that responsibility and will never forget it.”— Robert M. Gates, Secretary of Defense Robert M.

4Ebeye Jebtas gather at churches to begin writing songs and reheasing as early as October in preparation for Christmas Day celebrations. (Photos by Beth Davie and Nell Drumheller) By the Rev. Elden Buck as told to Pat Cataldo(Editor’s note: This article rst appeared in The Hourglass in December, 1999. Pat Cataldo is a former Hourglass editor. The Rev. Elden Buck is a former chaplain on Kwajalein and he and his wife, Alice, translated the Bible into Marshallese.) reparation for Christmas in the Republic of the Marshall Islands begins in October, when singing groups, called jebta [chapters], are called together. These groups are mostly gathered around the landowner on whose land they live, although on Ebeye there are also island chapters, made up of people from Alilinglaplap, Jaluit or Kapinmento – the western and northern islands of Lae, Ujae, Bikini, Wotho, Rongelap, Eniwetok and Ujelang. Kapinmeto means “those at the edge of the sea.”Everyone is involved in the singing groups, with old people and small children included in the same jebta. On Ebeye, the groups may have as many as 40 Marshallese begin preparations forChristmas Day early in Octoberor 50 members.By the time of the rst rehearsal, songs will have been selected by the iroij [chief], alap [landowner] or appointed director. Some of the songs are new and original each year; some have new words for old tunes. Twenty or 30 years ago, all the songs were new every Christmas, and there were no traditional Marshallese Christmas songs. Americans would have a hard time recognizing Marshallese music. There is no clef, no staff – in fact, there are no notes. Instead, the four-part harmony is written in a number system: Do=1 and 8, Re=2, Mi=3 and so on. The singers sight-read. All through November and December, the jebta rehearse almost every evening, meeting from about 9 p.m. until as late as 2 or 3 a.m., in schoolrooms, living rooms, on porches and even outside. Rehearsals don’t much resemble an American choir practice. It is common to see some members sleeping, others conversing, and children playing noisily, whileP

At a second signal, several verses later, the Christmas tree breaks apart, and dollar bills oat to the oor. While all of the plans and props are being made, another committee decides what gifts the chapter will bring to the church and collects money for the cash gift. On Ebeye, it isn’t unusual for a chapter’s cash gift to the church to reach $800 or $1,000, in addition to cases of soda, 100-pound bags of rice, cases of soya or laundry soap, bolts of material and island handicrafts. The group also decides what small presents they will throw to the audience during their performance. On the outer islands, chapters give stalks of bananas, pandanus, breadfruit, coconuts and live chickens and pigs. During the Sundays of Advent, chapters sing following morning worship service, as a hint of what they will perform on Christmas day. On Ebeye, one chapter or cember to sing at the church. On its Sunday, the group cleans up, decorates and prepares food. This is also the day the group’s gift to the pastor is presented. After the regular service, the congregation enjoys the food. Sometime during the two weeks before Christmas, each group dresses in its uniforms and goes out, seldom before midnight, to sing and present gifts to the iroij, pastor, missionary and other village or island dignitaries.One Sunday, usually the last Sunday before Christmas, is designated ‘singing Sunday,’ and all or most of the groups sing at church. It is a sort of dress rehearsal for the main performance on Christmas. But the big surprises in the presentations will be kept secret until Christmas day. The groups have a uniform, shirts and dresses all made of the same fabric and usually in the same style, for ‘singing Sunday’ and


Saturday, Dec. 23, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 MARSHALLESE, from Page 5 another for Christmas.On Christmas Eve, the pastor and one or two church elders are expected to visit each chapter to sample the whole program, make suggestions as to propriety (sometimes recommending that part of the presentation be made outside the church) and see that the dances are not too lively. At this time, the chapters draw straws for order of appearance. No chapter wants to be rst, in fact, the later the better. After this nal rehearsal, the chapters march around the island singing. On outer islands, this is done on foot by lantern light. On Ebeye it is often done from the backs of trucks. Whenever one chapter meets another, it is exciting and hilarious. On Christmas day, the church is cleared of most benches, with only a few seats left around the edge for older people and guests. The celebrations begin about 10 a.m., when all the chapters come to hear the Christmas story read from the scriptures and offer their special thanks in prayer and worship. The celebration goes on until all the chapters have performed. On Ebeye, this can mean a 12to 14hour observance, or even a second day. Each jebta leader begins by bringing into the church his group’s gifts of food and supplies and the props for its presentation. The jebta, gathered out of sight at some distance, begins singing its marching song and slowly approaches the church. This procession is actually a sort of dance, including intricate overunder and serpentine patterns. The leader, and sometimes the whole group, waves a ag or scarf, and all singing is done at the greatest possible volume. [Technology has added electronically-enhanced music to the performance.] The entrance march ends with the group in singing position, sometimes facing the audience, but more often facing the pulpit, and the presentation begins. Between songs, there are speeches by the iroij, the alap and any other dignitary accompanying the group. Each jebta has some member of an iroij family as its sponsor. The climax comes when the theme is explained, and the props are put into action. One year, a chapter chose “Paul’s Shipwreck” as its theme. They built a 25-foot oat shaped like a ship and pulled it to the church. There the at fell apart on purpose, spilling gifts to all onlookers. Should a prop not work or a jebta make an obvious mistake in harmony or words (all singing is done from memory), there is much laughter, clapping and friendly name-calling from the audience. During the ‘giving song’ the jebta marches past the altar, piling on cash. During this time, the singers throw gifts to the audience, including bars of soap, boxes of matches, gum, thread, candy, pieces of material, rolls of pandanus, and so forth, while the women lavishly spray cologne and perfume over onlookers. Gifts are seldom thrown to anyone in particular, although it is not unusual for a woman to be wearing several dresses and remove the top one to give to a friend or leader. A chapter deliberately works toward hypnotic excitement in the giving song and march, increasing its singing volume while clowning outrageously. The greater this excitement, the more likely it is that the members of the audience will jump up, join the circle, and add more cash to that of the performing group. At the close of the day, the pastor leads a brief worship service. By that time, the church is completely littered with gum wrappers, match boxes, leaves, ribbons and parts of the props. The altar area is jammed to the ceiling with food. It remains there for several days until leaders gather to divide it, a process that can also take several days. The pastor and church leaders divide the money among themselves, the iroij and school teachers, traditionally returning some of the food to the chapter. Midnight on the 25th does not signal the end of Christmas for the Marshallese. The chapters continue meeting, often until the middle of January, to sing and visit those village leaders they missed before Christmas, and especially to make plans for the great feast and party each chapter holds.With the jebta parties, the long holiday season ends. Christmas in the Marshall Islands in a thanksgiving festival, celebrated joyously to commemorate the coming of Christ. A jebta enters a church to begin their Christmas performance for the visitors. Two women prepare gifts and candy which will be distributed during the jebta’s dancing and singing celebration in church.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 23, 2006 7 See LIGHTS, Page 20By Shelley Childers, Sam Larsen and Alex LollarChristmas just wouldn’t be the same without the glow of homes decorated with twinkling strands of Christmas lights. This holiday season get on your bike or stroll the housing areas and take in the light displays throughout the island, just one more way to catch the holiday spirit. Donna and Steve Howell 203-A Lagoon Road The Howells love putting up Christmas decorations, and do so every year. Steve thinks it is a nice way to give something back to the community, and little children seem to love it. “Things like that mean so much to everyone,” he said. “It gets them in the Christmas spirit. And it’s fun.” Check out the Kwaj-conditioned bike outlined with twinkle lights outside the second oor window. Cheryl and Jeff DeLong 103 Lagoon Road Jeff and Cheryl DeLong usually don’t decorate the outside of their house very much for Christmas, but this year both of their daughters are coming home from college. Cheryl said she wanted it to be special for them. She also admitted that she had a lot of fun putting the lights up, although she did have help. It looks nice at night and she can’t wait to see her daughters’ faces when they come home. Cheryl and Dick Shields 135-A off Lagoon Road The Shields family has gone all out on its Christmas decorations since their children were small. They think of it as a way of “never growing up” said Cheryl. As you pass down the street you can’t help but notice the two-story tree of lights and its Christmas Wonderland

Snakes On a Plane Forget terrorists or hijackers — there’s a handful of deadly assassins aboard a jet liner and they don’t even have arms or legs in this airborne thriller. Neville Flynn (Samuel L. Jackson) is an FBI agent handling what seems like a routine assignment — serving as bodyguard for Sean Jones (Nathan Phillips), a Hawaiian surfer dude who is ying to California to testify in a high-pro le criminal trial after witnessing mobster Eddie Kim (Byron Lawson) murdering one of his underlings. However, Flynn’s job gets a lot more challenging when he discovers Kim’s associates don’t want Jones to talk, and have devised a unique way to ensure his silence. A cache of highly dangerous poisonous snakes has been hidden on board the jet, and is released using a timed mechanism once the ight is well underway. The Covenant An ancient secret threatens to unleash the powers of darknessa on a group of modern prep school students when the sole survivor of a cursed bloodline returns to lay claim to the powers denied to him centuries ago in a supernatural teen thriller from director Renny Harlin and screenwriter J.S. Cardone. The story begins in 1692, when ve families from the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts formed a covenant of silence that would forever protect their remarkable powers. One family went too far, though, and as a result of their transgression they were forever banished from the land. Flash forward to the new millennium and the four Sons of Ipswich are now the student elite at the prestigious Spenser Academy. Bound by their sacred ancestry and sworn to silence, these four teens share a secret so remarkable that it has served to protect their families for hundreds of years. Invincible From the producers of The Rookie and Remember the Titans comes an inspirational sports drama detailing the true story of a down-on-his-luck football fan whose dreams of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the best of the gridiron became a once-in-a-lifetime reality.

Without a tree stand for their live Christmas tree, purchased from the Kwajalein High School, the Sudderths didn’t know what to do with the tree. They considered just leaning it up in the corner and throwing on some decorations until a friend mentioned something about a Christmas tree hung upside down. The idea stuck and apparently, so did the Christmas tree. Decorated with sea shells, ornaments made from coconuts and other “beachy” fragments found around the island, it is somehow tting to say the tree is “Kwaj-conditioned.” Replacing the traditional angel at the top of the tree is a coconut reindeer head, with antlers fashioned from the family’s Thanksgiving turkey wishbone, dangling below.
