We should congratulate ourselves for making it through. I didn’t have another heart attack, any major surgeries, any major health problems and I didn’t spend any nights in a hospital. Geez, what a boring year. But, like I always say, boring can be mighty good. Interesting stuff isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. At least with boredom, nothing bad is happening. That’s my theory anyway. I mean, bad things are never boring. They always require lots of attention and make for loads of stress. There’s an ancient Chinese curse that goes, “May you live in interesting times.” Man, for the last couple of years, things have been way too interesting for me. Besides my own physical attention-getters, there’s been the steady drumbeat of bad news in the world. You know how Iraq’s not going well, Iran and North Korea are getting nuclear weapons, the Middle East is always in turmoil, there’s genocide going on in Dafur and the Sudan, Russia and China keep making bad noises about everything, terrorists are everywhere, we’re running out of oil and, oh yeah, global warming is going to kill us all. It’s way interesting stuff, huh? Like I said, bring on boring. Right now, I’d like to make a New Year’s resolution. I never want to see a TV news program again. I never want to read a newspaper or magazine ever again. I never want to hear radio news either. I also don’t want e-mails telling me anything either. Of course, given the job I have, that might not turn out so well. It could be hard to write about stuff I don’t know anything about. Oh sure, some people say that’s what I do anyway, but what do they know, the peasants. I really want to spend the rest of my life in what I like to call the ‘Sgt. Schultz mode’ (for those of you old enough to remember Hogan’s Heroes ).I know you recall Schultz’ famous answer to everything, “I know nothing...nothing!” Yeah, that man had the secret of a good life. I really think the less someone knows, the happier they gotta be. Think about it. What if you didn’t know about Iraq, terrorism, Iran, global warming or any of the other really interesting things that are going on? Wouldn’t you be happier? Of course, it might get kinda old living under a rock or in a cave, but hey, you gotta take the bad with the good, you know.Well, you’re probably as tired of reading this as I am of writing it, so I’ll leave you with the best wish I can make. Have a really, really boring new year. Chugach employee Mike Dame has worked on Kwajalein for more than 20 years and is the air eld ramp lead man. Anyone who has either own the helicopter, watched Air Mobility Command aircraft being unloaded or loaded, or vehicles maneuvering on the ramp should know this guy has it under control. In this type environment it is not his job to be your friend, but to ensure everyone’s safety and he does that fantastically! He yells, screams, points and does whatever is necessary to ensure the job is done right and passengers are transported safely.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 30, 2006 3D.A.R.E Students graduate from drug prevention programHourglass reportsTwenty-nine 6th graders graduated from the Kwajalein Drug Abuse Resistance Education or D.A.R.E. program in December. The course, taught annually by the Kwajalein Police Department, is a “collaborative program in which the KPD and the elementary school join together to educate students about personal and social consequences of substance abuse and violence,” according to Lt. Mike Larsen from KPD and the course instructor. “The program will provide children with the information and skills they need to avoid tobacco and alcohol, to live drug-free and violence-free lives. Abuse of ATOD [Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs] can lead to violence.”Mary Doerries’ winning essayThis D.A.R.E. class was very different than the one I had back in the states. This time I have to write a report. Also, my old D.A.R.E. of cer just told stories, but this time I learned important skills and how to recognize ordinary from the unordinary. I learned about alcohol and the effects it has on us. I learned how it is illegal for some ages to drink alcohol. I learned about marijuana and how it is illegal in the United States. Marijuana affects your brain and body and causes short-term memory loss. Marijuana has 50-70 percent more poisons than tobacco smoke. I learned how it is illegal for anyone to have tobacco under the age of 18 years. Tobacco has nicotine, and that causes addiction. The more tobacco you have, the more of a chance that you will get lung cancer. I learned that beer is illegal to some ages. I learned that beer companies put advertisements on toys, hats, shirts, etc. They try to make it look cool to drink when it’s really not. Companies think we are going to buy their products in the future. The companies don’t care if we are too young to drink, and they don’t care if we get into trouble or not for drinking it. I learned how to make good decisions about problems that might happen to me. I think when my sister gets older I hope the D.A.R.E. program will still be going on, because everyone should be able to learn the effects drugs have on you. I also learned that peer pressure has a huge affect on some people. If some people want to t in with others who do drugs or other bad things, they are going to do those things and it does not make it right. These are some of the things I learned in D.A.R.EThe D.A.R.E. program is ten lessons long with one lesson a week for ten weeks. “The children are very interested in the program and have expressed their interest in their nal D.A.R.E. reports generated for graduation,” Larsen said. “Most of the children enjoy interacting with local law enforcement and learning what law enforcement does on USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll].” Larsen added that the program teaches children about the dangers of ATOD, and the children have expressed their understanding how to make the right decisions about ATOD situations. “Each child provides a pledge to live drug-free and violence-free life at the end of the program. Several children have expressed that they knew about ATOD prior to the program, but did not really understand the effects it has on their lives until they attended D.A.R.E.,” he said. The youth were required to write an essay to graduate from the program. The essays were judged by Larsen. Mary Doerries, a student in Anne Jahnke’s class, won the essay competition. Carolyn Kulig, of Tara Yurovchak’s class, was also recognized for her essay contributions. “I just want to express how proud the Kwajalein Police Department is of all the students’ hard work during the past ten weeks. Additionally, I want to thank Mrs. Yurovchak, Mrs. Jahnke, and the school for their help and participation in the program,” Larsen said. My D.A.R.E. Pledge:I pledge not to do drugs, alcohol, and tobacco and not to give into peer pressure. I will tell people that smoking and drugs are wrong, so hopefully they will not do them either.

Her plan was to leave the island to major in Fashion Design at Marist College, Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Located just 90 miles north of Manhattan, Lauren would have the New York fashion scene within arms’ reach. She could hop on the Metro-North commuter rail and be on Fashion Avenue in a heartbeat. For a young woman with design aspirations what could be better than that? How about the opportunity to attend a fouryear bachelor degree program in Florence, Italy? Lauren received a letter from Marist selecting her as a potential candidate, based on her fashion design application and academic grades, to attend its newly developed fashion design program with the Scuola Lorenzo de’ Medici as a freshman. Of course, her parents Diane and Doug Peters, still on Kwajalein, had more than a few questions and were understandably a bit trepid about sending their eldest daughter straight from Kwajalein to Italy. “Where would Lauren live? What is the primary language of instruction at the school? If Lauren chose to return to Marist after a year would her credits transfer,” Doug wondered. But high on Vivendo in Italia bella

A typical week for Lauren centers on her classes at Lorenzo de Medici where she is taking Introduction to the Fashion Industry, Beginning Italian, Principles of Drawing and Composition, Basic Sewing and College Writing II. “I really do enjoy all of my classes here,” she said. “None of my professors are American; my writing teacher is from England, my fashion teacher is from Germany, and all of the others are from Italy. They bring a completely different perspective into everything. “I feel like I’m gaining a lot of extra experience both academically and personally than if I had gone straight to Marist,” continued Lauren. “Academically, it’s allowing me so much hands-on experience and so many different ideas to learn and study about. I also have the easy ability to travel to so many unique and interesting places.”Come the weekend and Lauren is off exploring these “As terri ed as I was to take this kind of a leap, especially for my freshman year, it’s been a great experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything.”— Lauren Peters

One young bagger fashioned his yardage into a vest to wear, just to be a bit different. “She gives us a Christmas gift,” said Cashier Aileen Bolkeim expressing the sentiments of the workers at the registers. “She is our friend, we really thank her for the material.”Part of this Surfway tradition is to take photographs of each member of the staff wearing his or her out t. The employees look forward to having their photos taken, often adding a wot or handicraft ower to their hair. The photos of the “Surfway Gang” are then assembled on the wall next to the 15-items-orless checkout register for the next year. When it came time for Stock Clerk Masa Samual to have his photo taken, he wouldn’t take the photo until the aisle he maintains was completely clean. Only then would he pose for the camera. It’s as much fun for me as it is for them,” said the Christmas angel.By JJ KleinReporterIf you dared to venture into Surfway on December 23 you may have noticed something different, and no, it wasn’t the crowded aisles or the long lines of Kwajalein residents making their last minute Christmas purchases at the registers. Hitting just the right festive note of the season were the Surfway employees dressed in their holiday “uniform.” There is no mandated uniform for the 21 Surfway employees, but several times a year the cashiers, baggers, stock clerks and managers dress in matching shirts and dresses. The entire Surfway staff will be sporting its holiday attire again on New Year’s Eve. The holiday out ts are a Christmas tradition that started three years ago when a Christmas “angel” donated yards and yards of fabric for no speci c reason other than “to do something nice for them.” “I’ve built this relationship with them that just sort of happened,” said this person, who wishes to remain anonymous. “I enjoy them; they are always friendly, and I enjoy teasing with them.” “It really surprised us the rst year and then to follow-up with another two years,” commented Ray Denham, Surfway store manager, “we are very appreciative of what she is doing.” Shopping for the fabric begins in October with some input from the staff. This year they requested burgundy colored material, but none was found, so the donor chose a cheerful tropical print with green and burgundy palm fronds set on a beige background. In November each employee was given the fabric, three yards for women and two yards for men, to create an out t for the Christmas season. Staff members put their own individual style to their out t, em-Surfway cashier Alina Labaun sports her ‘holiday uniform’ made out of fabric donated by an private benefactor on island. Enough fabric was donated to make uniforms for 21 Surfway employees. (Photo by JJ Klein)

KruzelAmerican Forces Press ServiceMilitary tradition will be evident throughout the events associated with the Tuesday death of former President Gerald R. Ford, as the services join the nation in bidding farewell to their former commander-in-chief. Ford’s three-stage state funeral will begin tomorrow with the former president’s remains lying in repose at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Palm Desert, Calif. He will then be honored in the nation’s capital, and nally in his home state of Michigan, where he will be buried. Ford’s casket will arrive today at Andrews Air Force Base, Md. A motorcade will travel through Alexandria, Va., where Ford resided while serving as a congressman and vice president. After a pause at the World War II Memorial -Ford served in the Navy during the war -the motorcade will proceed to the U.S. Capitol, where the former president will lie in state. Ford’s cof n will be draped in a U.S. ag, with the blue eld over his left shoulder. The custom began in the Napoleonic Wars of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, when a ag was used to cover the dead as they were taken from the battle eld on a caisson.Graveside military honors in Michigan will include the ring of three volleys each by seven servicemembers. This commonly is confused with an entirely separate honor, the 21-gun salute. But the number of individual gun rings in both honors evolved the same way.The three volleys came from an old battle eld custom. The two warring sides would cease hostilities to clear their dead from the battle eld, and the ring of three volleys meant that the dead had been properly cared for and the side was ready to resume the battle. The 21-gun salute traces its roots to the Anglo-Saxon empire, when seven guns constituted a recognized naval salute, as most naval vessels had seven guns. Because gunpowder in those days could be more easily stored on land than at sea, guns on land could re three rounds for every one that could be red by a ship at sea. Later, as gunpowder and storage methods improved, salutes at sea also began using 21 guns. The United States at rst used one round for each state, attaining the 21-gun salute by 1818. The nation reduced its salute to 21 guns in 1841, and formally adopted the 21-gun salute at the suggestion of the British in 1875. An “order of arms” protocol determines the number of guns to be used in a salute. A president, expresident or foreign head of state is saluted with 21 guns. A vice president, prime minister, secretary of defense or secretary of the Army receives a 19-gun salute. Flag of cers receive salutes of 11 to 17 guns, depending on their rank. The rounds are red one at a time. A U.S. presidential death also involves other ceremonial gun salutes and military traditions. On the day after the death of the president, a former president or president-elect -unless this day falls on a Sunday or holiday, in which case the honor will rendered the following day -the commanders of Army installations with the necessary personnel and material traditionally order that one gun be red every half hour, beginning at reveille and ending at retreat. On the day of burial, a 21-minute gun salute traditionally is red starting at noon at all military installations with the necessary personnel and material. Guns will be red at one-minute intervals. Also on the day of burial, those installations will re a 50-gun salute -one round for each state -at vesecond intervals immediately following lowering of the ag. The playing of “Ruf es and Flourishes” announces the arrival of a ag of cer or other dignitary of honor. Drums play the ruf es, and bugles play the ourishes – one ourish for each star of the ag of cer’s rank or as appropriate for the honoree’s position or title. Four ourishes is the highest honor. When played for a president, “Ruf es and Flourishes” is followed by “Hail to the Chief,” The bugle call “Taps” originated in the Civil War with the Army of the Potomac. Ford will be buried with full military honors at his presidential museum in Grand Rapids, Mich., Wednesday.Military tradition to be evident at Ford funeral
