Kemem L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor See REACHING OUT, Page 7Congress denies use of money from Kwajalein budgetThanks to volunteers for help with Spring Break Music Festival COMMENTARY2Reaching out to someone in pain can do wonders By Tamara Ward Contributor Tuesday morning I woke up, eager to start a new week. As I walked to the kitchen to make a cup of coffee, I glanced at the TV and saw a breaking news story. I was shocked to see that while I was soundly sleeping, a man in his twenties shot and killed 32 students at Virginia Tech and injured at least 28. The young man reportedly walked into a dormitory rst, shooting two innocent students and two whole hours later walked into an engineering building, shooting even more. While I had forgotten about my coffee and was sitting on my couch in disbelief, wondering and praying for the parents of the victims, I started to notice that the news about this incident was moving to the backburner. A stepfather, who lost a child in the Columbine shooting, started venting about law enforcement corruption and how they are still ghting in court to get all the information for the victimÂ’s lawsuit.Now, I know when it comes to 24-hour news stations and breaking news stories where you donÂ’t have all the information up front, you have to nd things to talk about in the meantime. Somewhere in I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the volunteers, various departments and to the Kwajalein community for making the 7th Annual Spring Break Music Festival a great success. As always, this event would not have been possible without the support and willingness of many individuals and groups who volunteered their time and effort. A special thanks goes out to all the bands and their members for providing us with great live music throughout the day, the Kwajalein Yacht Club for hosting yet another successful chili cook-off, the barbeque cooks for cooking up a wonderful variety of pulled pork, the home brewers See THANKS, Page 7 Last week in my column I talked about our latest budget challenge and about the prudent measures we need to take to get us through the next couple of months. I just received word from higher authority that Congress has denied the use of the $50M it was reprogramming from our budget and has now returned that money back to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll.While this is good news, it doesnÂ’t preclude us from continuing with prudent measures to curb spending. We are still supporting a war effort, and Editorial we need to be ready to make some sacri ces to support our ghting men and women. That said, we will still take a close look at all travel requests, authorizing only those that are truly mission-essential. We still need to limit overtime to only that necessary to carry out the mission. We will not, however, cut back on any family support programs or any summer hire programs we have in place. As the commander of this ne Army installation, it is my duty to minimize impacts on our programs and on your lives. I very much appreciate your continued support and cooperation.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 21, 2007administrative of ces. The adopted curriculum will be presented to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander Col. Stevenson Reed for nal approval. The SAC acts in an advisory capacity to the USAKA commander. Votes to accept or deny school policies by the board become a recommendation to the commander. The science curriculum will be up for review again in 2013. Math (K-12), reading (K-7) and consumer science will undergo the review process next year. At the public meeting High School Counselor Jaime Bowers offered an informal report to the SAC regarding the Academic Testing Program, School Policy 3000.20. “A month ago I came to the executive meeting and suggested there be no changes to the K-12 testing program, with the exception of a review by the superintendent, of the Cognitive Abilities Test in grades 3, 6, and 9,” explained Bowers, “and I understand that that review was done, and the recommendation was to keep as is.” Bowers added that data from current testing programs meet school accreditation goals and he sees no need for any changes or additions to next year’s testing plan. School Advisory Council 3Updated science curriculum unanimously approvedBy JJ Klein ReporterThe updated science curriculum was unanimously approved by the School Advisory Council on Wednesday evening at the monthly, public meeting. The proposed changes in the science curriculum will provide for a more seamless transition from elementary school to middle school to high school, according the Science Curriculum Committee co-chairs Greg Moore and Brian Brewster. “Before, the students were used to taking all the sciences [life, physical and earth sciences] every year,” Brewster said. “What we wanted to do was start to focus that a little earlier on so that teachers could cover the material with a little more depth. “Now 6th grade is going to focus on life [science] and that cycles right in to a natural progression, because then earth [science] follows the 7th grade, physical [science] is in 8th grade, 9th grade is biology,” continued Brewster. “So there’s a more natural cycle there where the kids will spiral through the curriculum a little more effectively.” The proposed science curriculum was presented to the SAC last month for review. Copies of the updated curriculum were placed in faculty lounges and presented to the community for comment at a pubic meeting at the high school library on March 1, and made available by request from school “However, if we find—because this is the rst year we are doing the COGAT—when we get this information back that it’s not as useful as we thought it would be, we do want to reserve the right [with] this group to adjust that before we dive into it next year,” continued Kwajalein Schools Superintendent Al Robinson. “There’s no sense doing that a second time if we nd that the data is not of any use to us.”Also on the SAC agenda was a report by Robinson on spring 2007 survey results for Kwajalein schools and Community Education. Survey results showed parents are supportive of the elementary and high school, giving both schools high marks in a majority of areas. Areas that parents indicated a satisfaction include an emphasis on academic learning, high standards set by Kwajalein teachers, and student discipline by school administration.One area that remains a concern for parents in both the elementary school and high school is a dissatisfaction with the media center/library offerings. “We plan to move forward with the improvement plan for the media/ information centers at both schools, speci cally the libraries,” Robinson said. “We already made commitments to spend about $11,000 this next year between the two buildings to beef up those collections, [and] make sure we’re in good shape there.”Survey results will be sent to the school evaluator and used as part of the dialog of the ongoing school improvement plan, Robinson said. The SAC members also welcomed Chris Womack as a Kwajalein Range Services representative to the SAC board, replacing the outgoing Ragnar Opiniano. Opiniano served two years on the council. The next public SAC forum will be 7 p.m., May 16, in the George Seitz Elementary School music room. Survey results showed parents are supportive of the elementary and high school, giving both schools high marks in a majority of areas. Upcoming events Today: Elementary School Talent Show, 6:30 p.m., MP Room. Jr./Sr. Banquet, Coral Sands. Sunday: Stage Band Dinner Dance, 6:30 p.m., in the multi-purpose room. Thursday: Fourth grade State Fair, 6:30 p.m., Elem. School Music Bldg. Friday: Junior/Senior art show, 7 p.m., MP room.

Nell DrumhellerEditorThe Earth Day celebration is just around the corner. This year’s theme is “Protection of Natural and Cultural Resources.” There was a beach and underwater cleanup on Roi-Namur today, kicking off the 2007 Earth Day event. On Kwajalein, the Earth Day event will be from 9 a.m. to noon, April 30, at Emon Beach “This year’s Earth Day will have more activities focused on protecting natural and cultural resources,” explained Cathy Madore of Kwajalein Range Services Environmental, Safety and Health. There will be displays and information on indigenous plants and wildlife as well as a Marshallese story teller, weavers and demonstrations of Marshallese net shing. Madore added that the standard favorites for Earth Day will also be at the event, including edible dirt and the archeological dig. “There are only three or four indigenous plants [in the Marshall Islands],” Madore said. It’s not like Hawaii where there are many more. “Almost everything was introduced.” Many of the nonindigenous plants are invasive. “We’re doing a whole display on invasive plants.” One plant in particular is considered a signi cant problem. It is the dodder vine and is known by descriptive nicknames such as Strangleweed, Devils’ Guts, and Witches’ Shoelaces. “It is like a vampire vine that can smell other plants; it sticks its fangs into other plants and drinks its uids. It is steadily increasing across Kwajalein,” Madore said. Information on the marine mammal monitoring program will be on display. “You can hear things that were recorded during the last deployment,” Madore said. Another ES&H program is marine mammal observation. “After Earth Day, people will be offered observation training; you could become a trained marine mammal observer,” she said. Some of the planned events include an art contest using recycled goods; an island and underwater clean-up and a barbecue lunch. There will be an archeological exhibit on Roi next weekend. Madore said there will be activities for all ages. EARTH DAY MOVIES: Several movies are set to play this this weekend and next to support Earth Day on Kwajalein. The movies are: Erin Brockovich ; Ice Age II: The Meltdown ; Gorillas in the Mist ; A Bug’s Life ; An Inconvenient Truth ; March of the Penguins and Wing Migration See the movie schedule on Page 8 for times and locations. For more information on Earth Day, call Madore at 58856.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 21, 2007 7REACHING OUT, from Page 2 Blacksburg, Va., a mother and father had just been told that their child was brutally shot. On the TV, the focus was on how corrupt law enforcement can be; the same law enforcement that was at Virginia Tech then and will be for weeks to come, trying to nd out what’s going on and why it happened, while keeping the surviving students safe.I am in no way saying that it is not important that the Center for Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms investigate how this young man got the guns or that FBI pro lers and Blacksburg police detectives try to eventually gure out the motive. In a few days, when the shock has died down, and people are starting to focus on something else going on in the world, a psychiatrist will weigh in on this shooting. He or she will probably say something about the shooter’s state of mind at the time, and students at the school will start to be more vocal about signs they saw and ignored; and to me, that’s what we need to be focusing on right now. Doesn’t it really start there? Before he bought the gun, and before his professor made him angry, or he had an argument with his girlfriend, he was probably a very unhappy man, and it probably showed. When the shock from Columbine died down and law enforcement started to take its beating for what it didn’t do better, there were some smaller news stories where school of cials and students started to talk about how Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, were part of a “Trench Coat Ma a” group that stood out and talked about murdering people all the time. They drew pictures and had journals of writings promoting hatred, but they were just overlooked, because people simply didn’t care. They were regarded as outcasts and treated as such. Do you think that might have encouraged their behavior on April 20, 1999? I don’t believe we will ever have a set solution for any one problem. As long as people have free will and a choice between doing what’s right and what’s wrong, we will have those who will choose to do the wrong thing. But I do believe people who feel they are loved and cared about are less prone to violence than those who don’t receive love and compassion. When was the last time you chose to offer help to someone in pain instead of sitting around and criticizing a person who you interpret to have a bad attitude or a grouchy mentality? Yes, there is a direct relation between a person in pain and a person with a bad attitude. A person who is mad at the world is usually a person who feels he is hurt by the world in some way. I think it’s easier for us to blame the powers that be, than to look at a situation, speci cally a tragedy, and how it relates to us. Could I have stopped this? Could my son or daughter have been angry enough to do something like this? Could this event have happened at my child’s college instead of Virginia Tech? How hard is it to ask someone if you can help them, or if they’re ok? Yeah, most times you will get a “leave me alone” look, or the infamous, “I’m ne,” but if just one person says “yes, I need help,” and you can make a difference for that one person, isn’t it worth it if that person was contemplating suicide or something equally heinous? Depression is a very real problem and can affect an individual’s mentality on a lot of levels. In our small community, I know it’s easy to lose sight of the kind of violence that is going on in the United States and the world, but pain is pain, and anyone can feel it, and anyone can act on it at anytime, anywhere. Tuesday, a young man took his pain out on others. Was there anything you could have done to stop it? Of course not. But events like these ought to make you want to take some kind of action, even if it’s something small. Reaching out to an individual in pain can do wonders, because you never know how much help you can really do and how much pain you can really heal. for supplying such a great selection of beverages, the R/C club, and nally to the crews of the following departments for all their outstanding support: Community Activities, Electric Shop, Buildings and Grounds, Carpentry Shop, Fire Department, and Food Services. There are several people and groups who I would like to especially thank: Dan Eggers for the many hours he put in, Neil Dye for his support, Rick Larkin for the KYC chili cook-off, Bud Teague for the great pulled-pork cook-off, Ozzy Velez for the mini-R/C racing, Dr. Monte Junker and the KYC skippers for the fun Sun sh rides, THANKS, from Page 2 Kim Parker, Torrey Landers, and all the volunteers at the beer garden. A very special Komol Tata to Asmond Arelong, Carton Karon, Mike Bill, Sotin Maie, Kisino Loeak, Emce Korwan and Julius Johnson of Community Activities and Naiti Lati and Tommy Loeak of Waste Disposal. Without the support of these and many others, this event would never have happened. A big thank you goes out to Jim and Jennifer Cossey, Jim Hall and John Beckler and the others who showed up early Monday morning to help with the clean up. To the folks who donated their homemade chili, pulled-pork and homebrew, thanks for all the great tasting concoctions! And nally, to the Kwajalein community, a big thanks to all of you for your generous support and donations. This year we collected $1,000 to assist outer island education. Thank you! It is truly the time, effort and support of the volunteers in our community that makes events such as this a success. Hope to see you all again next year! — Jim Stepchew event coordinator A multi-cultural art show featuring artwork by junior/senior high school students will be at 7 p.m., Friday, in the multi-purpose room.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Children of Men Y Tu Mam Tambin and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuarn returns to the helm to tell this futuristic tale in which society is without hope since humankind lost its ability to procreate. The year is 2027, and women can no longer give birth. The youngest inhabitant of the planet has just died at the age of 18, and all hope for humanity has been lost. As civilization descends into chaos, a dying world nds one last chance for survival in the form of a woman who has become inexplicably pregnant. The Prestige Obsession, jealousy, and deceit de ne the tense relationship shared between two turn-of-the-century magicians in Memento and Batman Begins director Christopher Nolan’s dizzying tale of sleight of hand. Rupert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) are London-based magicians of the highest order, both blessed with spectacular powers of deception and both cursed with unrelenting envy for one another’s skills. When Alfred performs an awe-inspiring trick for which there seems no logical explanation, the friendly competition shared between the pair turns to deadly rivalry as the enraged Rupert determines to uncover his rival’s deepest secrets. In the world of illusion, however, nothing is ever quite as it seems, and the rules of the physical world simply don’t apply. Now, as bitter competition quickly begins to consume the souls of both performers, the restorm birthed by their anger threatens to consume all who surround them. Rocky Balboa The movie begins with Rocky (Stallone) still mourning the death of his loyal and beloved wife, Adrian, who died three years previously after losing a battle against cancer. Rocky owns an Italian restaurant and spends his days living in his working-class Philadelphia neighborhood, visiting with his customers, and telling stories about his past. His grown son has a job as a business professional, but the relationship between the two is strained. When the current heavyweight champion, Mason “The Line” Dixon (Antonio Tarver), needs to rehabilitate his image as a pretty boy who has never shown any real heart in the ring, his manager offers Rocky an exhibition match.The following 25 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terror: Three Soldiers died Apr. 9 in Baghdad when an improvised explosive device detonated near their vehicle.
