Saturday, May 19, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglassreason.’ I know I can turn to her at any time and she will have a kind, smart, informed, honest answer to my question. I was shocked, and I admit a bit nave, that an 11 year old would consider throwing up her food to minimize her size. First, when I was 11, I don’t remember thinking about what I was going to wear or how I looked (I really didn’t start thinking that way until maybe ve or six years ago; maybe I’m a slow starter). Second, how could Leah, from a family of string beans, be worried about her weight? I am commonly known by my siblings as ‘the short, fat one,’ if that gives you any idea of what they all look like. The chances of anyone related to us ever being overweight is highly unlikely. Anyway, back to my conversation with Ruf ng. She said that yes, young people, even pre-teens, develop the bad habit of vomiting their food. It’s called bulimia nervosa and is a serious eating disorder marked by a destructive pattern of bingeThe Kwajalein Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944.

Kemem2 commentary L e t t e r s t o t h e e d i t o r Letters to the editor Thin is not enough for some youngsters Last week I received disturbing news from my daughter. My granddaughter’s school called her and said it had been reported that my granddaughter and some of her friends, all around 11, were seen in the school bathroom throwing up their food. That’s all she had when she called me. She hadn’t talk to Leah yet and didn’t have all of the facts, but she was scared and so she called her mommy. There wasn’t much I could do from thousands of miles away, except of course worry. And so I began fretting while waiting optimistically for the next phone call from Arizona telling me that it had been a mistake. It wasn’t Leah in the bathroom; she wasn’t experimenting with a potentially deadly habit all for the sake of body image. While I worried I also made a few phone calls. I spoke to Marion Ruffing, who is the Kwajalein Range Services Employee Assistance Program facilitator, but to me is the ‘voice of eating and recurrent inappropriate behavior to control one’s weight. Over the past few days I’ve spoken to a half-dozen or so people about my concerns. Surprisingly, out of the six or so people I talked to three told me that either bulimia or its ugly cousin anorexia nervosa had affected their lives. Two said they had family members who had struggled with this disorder; one kindly shared her personal struggles with body image issues and anorexia. I had no idea that it affected so many people. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, bulimia nervosa See EATING, Page 5The 3rd and 6th grade students and teachers of George Seitz Elementary School would like to thank the people and departments who helped make our recent Marshallese Cultural Experience such a success.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 19, 2007 3 School Advisory Council Howell bids parents, teachers farewellThe Hourglass reportsCommunity residents and School Advisory Council members packed the George Seitz Elementary School Music Room to say “Yokwe Yuk” to High School Principal Steve Howell at the final, public SAC meeting of the 2006-07 school year, held Wednesday evening. Howell, who is resigning from Kwajalein, was recognized with a special presentation for his nine years of service as the Junior/ Senior Kwajalein High School Principal and, in particular, for his service as acting superintendent over this past school year. Howell was presented with a Certificate of Achievement, a Kwajalein Range Services Presidential coin and the highest KRS award, the Presidential Pyramid by KRS President John Pickler. “We had some acrimonious times in the SAC meetings…but that settled down quickly, particularly as you came in and helped guide us through this particular forum,” said Pickler, “and more importantly, the shaping of the lives and futures of our country through our ‘Kwaj Kids.’ “The hundreds or thousands that you affected is just amazing,” continued Pickler. “I know it’s been a labor of love for you throughout.” Deputy Mission Commander Lt. Col. Jeff Klein, on behalf of U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, presented Howell with a framed photo montage of Kwajalein landmarks with a USAKA Commander’s coin and a Reagan Test Site Commander’s coin. Touched by the display of gratitude, Howell said, “The students of Kwaj are better than any place I have ever been in the 39 years I have been in this business. The same could be said of the faculty, staff and parents of this school district…I won’t say goodbye, but instead that I’ll see you later.” Following the presentations, SAC members discussed one action item the projected enrollment for the upcoming school year. “In April we had a head count in the school system of 365 students,” said Kwajalein Schools Superintendent Al Robinson. “Projected at the moment for 2007-2008 we have 332; which is down about 30.” The projected number is not an absolute as students come and go throughout the summer months, and Robinson said “it’s always a little bit of a guess.” Community members were asked to notify the school administration office if they know of any incoming students. “It does two things; for one it makes sure we have our grade levels, especially at the elementary level, figured out and balanced so that we don’t end up with a monstrous size class that we’re not expecting,” said Robinson. “And the other thing that it does is make sure that we’re in the loop in terms of getting kids cleared before they come on island.” Robinson also gave an update on the teacher hiring process. At present all vacant faculty slots have been filled. Four positions were filled from applicants stateside; the rest were on-island hires. “That’s very good; we have some high quality people on island,” Robinson said. “We’re very excited about where we’re at, staffing wise, right now. We do expect one more elementary position to open. Other than that we are pretty well set.” The last SAC meeting ended with a briefing by two members of the School Improvement Team. Math teacher Paige Singleton and fourth-grade teacher Susan Davis informed the SAC of the upcoming quality assurance review by the North Central Association. Kwajalein school district adheres to a five-year cycle with the NCA – the accreditation agency for Kwajalein schools and is entering the fifth year of this cycle. Parents and community members can visit the NCA Web site for a list of standards Kwajalein schools is accountable to as a school district, said Singleton. The SAC will convene again Sept. 19.

Saturday, May 19, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass“For each grade activity, it takes about two weeks to practice songs and dances. For MCE, the committee starts coordinating about 4 or 5 weeks in advance,” Johnson said. “Our students went to Ebeye one afternoon to learn the games, and then we played them each day the next week,” Johnson said. “When the Ebeye students came to visit us, we played each game with them.” Following a day of outside activity, students moved into the multi-purpose room where they paid tribute to their host nation. • Kindergarten sang two songs, one about counting and one about eating and drinking coconut milk. They also observed coconut husking and weaving. • First grade sang a song about the Republic of the Marshall Islands ag, and several students spoke about what the colors represented. • Second and fth grades performed a traditional Marshallese dance. • Third and sixth grades learned games and played the games with students from Ebeye Public School. They hosted 50 third-grade students and 50 sixth-grade students on Kwajalein over four days. • Fourth-grade students adapted a Marshallese legend into play format. Students wrote the play, made props and performed the play. This year their play was called “The Story of Aao”. “The students learn more about our host nation traditions and culture,” Johnson said. “It is a positive way for our students who are born in the RMI to celebrate their history and teach the non-native students about their culture.” She added, “We hope it helps to foster a sense of pride for our RMI students, and it helps our students who have moved to Kwajalein learn about the diverse history of the Marshallese. It allows a forum for students who have moved from all over the world to discuss their various cultural traditions.” “As a teacher, I learned about the wealth of knowledge and expertise there is around us. I met new people who were happy to come to our school and share their knowledge with us. They were teaching me the same time they taught my students,” Anne Jahnke, Seitz sixth grade teacher, said. “I also learned about the process involved in organizing an event such as this, as it involves so many people and different groups. It is quite a feat to bring it all together.”4 Youth learn about Marshallese cultureBy Nell DrumhellerEditorFor the sixth year, elementary school children on Kwajalein, with help from their teachers, have nished off their school year learning about their Marshallese neighbors. The Marshallese Cultural Experience was held on May 12. During the day, students learned about games, crafts and medicinal plants, and in the evening they put on a show at the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room. The games, weaving and medicinal plants were chosen because, according to Deonaire Keju, Ebeye Public School principal, they are being forgotten, and the elders fear that this part of the Marshallese culture will be lost forever. “Both the Ebeye Public Elementary and George Seitz Elementary third and sixth graders learned these important cultural things together,” said Tarah Yorovchak, a sixth-grade teacher at Seitz. In the afternoon, students played a tag-like game called Awia Awia which means wild or untamed and a baseball type game called Ejjab Ao which translates to it’s not mine. “Awia Awia was originally played on the beach under a full moon,” explained Deb Johnson, Elementary School principal. “Ejjab Ao is traditionally played with a very small pandanus ball, but our kids had dif culty with that, so we opted for a soft rubber ball.” Cheryl Shields, Greg Moore, Allison Kickhofel and Deanna Cain organized MCE. Each grade determined its own activity and practiced independently of the other grades, according to Johnson.Day lled with games, art, songs, sharing First-grade students Dash Alfred, Allison Homuth, Lila Burnley, Olivia Fleiming, Iley Kickhofel, Bern Denham and Abigail Bishop perform at the Marshallese Cultural Experience.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 19, 2007 5typically begins in adolescence or early adulthood. Like anorexia nervosa, bulimia mainly affects females. Only from 10 to 15 percent of affected individuals are male. An estimated from two to three percent of young women develop bulimia, compared with the onehalf to one percent that is estimated to suffer from anorexia. Studies indicate about 50 percent of those who begin an eating disorder with anorexia nervosa later become bulimic. With both bulimia and anorexia the common link is a preoccupation with food and weight. NAMI stated that one of the most frightening aspects of the disorder is that people with anorexia nervosa continue to think they look fat even when they are bonethin. Meanwhile, back in Arizona, my daughter sat down with my granddaughter and talked to her about the bathroom issue. Leah denied it had happened, said that it was a rumor that was spread around and ended up in the school head shed. My daughter spoke to her daughter about body image. Leah countered with, “Well, don’t all of the models do it to stay thin?” My daughter, sitting on the sofa in her size ve jeans, told her child, “Leah, no, not all models do it. And besides, look at us, we don’t get fat.” She can speak with authority, she’s the mother of three, doesn’t exercise, is 5’9” and I did mention the size ve, right? Anyway, she clinched it by adding, “Look at grandma, even she’s not fat and she’s old!” Glad I could be used as a teaching aide. All kidding aside, because this obviously isn’t a laughing matter, my granddaughter may have a problem. She ts the pro le. From what I’ve learned through personal revelations and academic study, most of the victims of this disorder are smart, overachievers, athletic and not overweight. She is all of those things. The victim is often trying to nd something she can control. Her weight is the answer. She lives in a world full of chaos; perhaps her food intake and what she weighs is what she can master, even if it is false. I’m not as nave as I was a few days ago; now I’m a bit more skeptical, and I don’t feel as safe as I did two weeks ago.

With Chris Bowman’s help, our 68 students easily processed through the Dock Security Checkpoint to go to Ebeye for a field trip. Noda Lojkar and Lt. Col. Jeff Klein were instrumental in arranging transportation for our friends from Ebeye to visit our school over a fourday period. The DSC officers made sure our visitors were processed through efficiently so that we could spend as much time as possible together. The Automotive Department was very timely in providing a bus back and forth from the school to the dock. The Buildings and Grounds Department also made sure we had palm fronds for our weaving activities. Thanks to the Community Activities Department and its great workers for all their help from the tent set-up to the use of their chalk machine. Mark Yurovchak also took time out of his schedule to help with the set-up of our games. We would also like to thank Deo Keju, assistant principal of the Ebeye Public School, all the teachers, students and Marshallese volunteers involved for generously sharing their time, knowledge and friendship with us. Kommol tata for helping us provide such a positive educational experience for all our students and for us as teachers!

Saturday, May 19, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 See SPACE, Page 7By JJ KleinReporterCome July 1, two young men from Kwajalein will nd out if they have the “right stuff” to make it through a turn on the multi-axis trainer or the ve-degrees of freedom chair and a week at Space Camp. Both simulators and the camp are designed to give young wannabe astronauts a taste of authentic astronaut training. Alex Weatherford and Logan Everts, fourth graders in Susan Davis’ class at George Seitz Elementary School and best friends, found out they were the winners of the 2007 Space Camp Scholarships from an announcement over the loudspeaker just before the lunch dismissal bell last week. “They said, ‘We have the two winners to space camp,’ and I just had butter ies all of a sudden,” said Weatherford. “I was outside shaking off something that had dust all over it, and Alex’s parents came with a video camera. Then my mom showed up and said, ‘Get inside, get inside,’” recounted Everts. “I said, ‘What’s happening, what’s happening?’ Then I got inside and everyone started jumping on me, and then Alex runs up and tackles me. And I didn’t know what happened.” “Well, I jumped on him,” admitted Weatherford, “and I said, ‘Logan, we did it!’ Because our plan was that we would be able to go together. And it just worked out. I was just so happy.” The two friends are terri c candidates for space camp, both dreaming of a future that can only bene t from a week of space exploration training. Everts lls in the blank behind the ‘when I grow up I want to be a…’sentence with thoughts of “becoming a pilot with really advanced, high-tech stuff, like, right now the F-22 Raptor If not, an archeologist. I kind of like that. I’m kind of inspired by that and Stargate .” Like his friend, Weatherford is also inspired by television shows, except he favors Star Trek and Star Wars “I’ve wanted to be a scientist when I grow up, an inventor probably. I’d like to study space or…,” Weatherford dropped off, his thoughts spiraling through all the possibilities, “another thing I thought of, there’s a lot of things on Star Trek that I might like to invent or a new way to power something.” Each year 16 scholarships to Space Camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. are awarded to children between the ages of nine and 11. Two of the 16 scholarships are presented annually to Kwajalein students. The camp scholarships include round-trip airfare, transportation to and from the Huntsville airport to the space camp, a Space Camp ight suit and clothing package, a phone card and spending money. To be eligible for the scholarships, students had to handwrite a 300600 word essay on a given topic and demonstrate an interest in science or space-related subjects. Additionally, the student must have a parent with a K-Badge assigned to the Space and Missile Defense Command or employed with Kwajalein Range Services. Students could choose from a list of thoughtprovoking essay questions such as, “What experiment would you like to conduct in space”, “Should we stop ying shuttle missions because of the danger” and “Should there be “space tourists?” Weatherford tackled the question, “Is the Space Station a good idea,” while Everts chose to answer, “Do you think Pluto should be a planet?” When pressed for a reason why Pluto should not be considered a planet, Everts disclosed that “I wrote multiple things and I didn’t exaggerate! I went deep into each question and told a lot about why it should not.” But all his persuasive arguments escaped him as he tried to contain his excitement of actually getting his own space ight suit. Weatherford had no problem recalling the main point of his essay world peace. “In my opinion it is Everts, Weatherford selected for space campBest friends have matching dreams of a future in space Space Camp is held at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala.

Or maybe we could accomplish something in space and go farther than what we have now.” A panel of four people, two from U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and two from KRS, ranked the anonymous essays based on creativity, response to the essay question, research and enthusiasm for the subject. Of the fteen essays submitted this year, the selection for the top spot was a unanimous decision by all four judges. After the essays were ranked, the secondand third-place selections were tied. That’s when the judges pulled out report card grades to break the tie. That left Angela Kendrick and Elizabeth Elkin as alternates if either of the boys is unable to attend. From the boys’ point of view, that is highly unlikely. Astronaut training, rocket building and summer camp; it doesn’t get much better than this when you’re ten years old.

(Photo by Nell Drumheller)The Hourglass reportsStarting immediately the new KC-Badge will be issued by the Badging Of ce at Entry/Exit to Kwajalein Atoll residents and foreign nationals whose duty status requires they reside on Kwajalein or Roi-Namur due to reasons of transportation or work hours. “These individuals would not normally rate an of cial accompanied or unaccompanied status and are de ned as local hire personnel under the Compact of Free Association,” explained Provost Marshal Maj. Johnny Davis. Kwajalein Range Services management will identify and alert personnel who live on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. Once notified by the KRS management, an individual will have 30 days to acquire or exchange old badges for the KC-Badge at the Badging Of ce in Building 901. KC-Badge privileges include: • Full access with retail privileges to include alcohol and tobacco purchase. • Non-restricted entry and residence on Kwajalein or Roi-Namur. • Guest sponsorship limited to two adults over age 21 unless commonlaw spouse. KC-badge personnel will not be able to sponsor minors, nor will they be able to sponsor or co-sponsor group events. Exceptions to this will be approved by the installation commander or his designated representative.Although similar in appearance to the K-Badge, the new badge will sport a brown background and the rst two identi cation characters will begin with the letters KC. “The purpose for implementing the KC-Badge is to rid USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] of the numerous unauthorized, supplemental badges that have been circulating among personnel in a C-Plus Badge status,” Davis said. “These individuals met the criteria of the KC-Badge status, but up to now no formal badge had been identi ed for their status.” In the past, various unauthorized badges extending shopping privileges were issued to personnel required to stay on island overnight. Some of these badges were commonly called the Joe Badge, the Marshall Plan and the Finn Access.“Though a good idea, there was no methodology for control and accountability. Those badges had no pictured identi cation and could be easily duplicated or shared,” said Davis. “The KC-badge implementation will correct this de ciency.” KC-BADGENew credentials set for some employees


Saturday, May 19, 2007 The Kwajalein Hourglass 8Family planAthletes young, old take over islandMichael Taylor is rst out of the water in Monday's Rusty Family. He held the lead through the mini-triathlon. (Photos by Nell Drumheller)By Nell DrumhellerEditorA week before, it was raining hard. The athletes and their support teams came out strong, seemingly oblivious to the weather. They were RustMan contestants. They were tri-athletes and the pounding rain and blowing wind wasn’t going to slow them down. What a difference a week can make. On Monday, under sunny skies, the water and roadways of Kwajalein were once again filled with local athletes, but this time the feeling in the air wasn’t so much hard-as-nails competitiveness, but more, hmmm, family picnic. “The 2007 Rusty Family swimbike-run mini-triathlon saw heavier than expected participation with 138 total contestants,” said race director Bob Sholar. Rusty Family is a ‘mini’ competition, but in name only. “The mini is only mini compared to RustMan distances,” Sholar said. “Rusty Family is daunting for the youngest participants: 500-yard swim, 10-mile bike and two-mile run.” Ninety-two contestants made up parts of the 30 teams of mostly two or three persons, according to Sholar. “There were several “family mlange” teams of four. The remaining 46 were “solo” contestants, doing all three legs on their own,” he said. “There have been as many as 44 teams in past years, but the 46 solos this year were a peak since the 1980s; likely due to recruiting and incentives by some Kwajalein Jr.-Sr. High School teachers. I hear the teachers will serve homemade chocolate chip cookies and hot cocoa to the student contes-

An incredible, most-improved performance was turned in by Julianne’s little brother, Graham. Though only a seventh grader, Graham finished in 56: 34, just 24 seconds behind Julianne and gaining on her! Graham clipped more than 10 minutes from his 1:06:37 performance last year and led an impressive set of 7th graders who took four of the top seven spots. Graham was followed by classmates Gilson Hogan, Shawn Brady and Jacob Jahnke.” No matter what part of the event a spectator caught, it was a sight to see. The odd child in an inner tube or rubber raft could be seen through the frothing whitewater caused by swimmers in the lagoon. On the running route, it was not uncommon to see a parent pushing a carriage full of children. “There were some adult solo contestants, mostly escorting their children,” Sholar said. “One of these was Shawn Ohler aside his 5-year old son, Tristan, the youngest person this year to cover the whole course on his own power.” The Rusty Family is a family affair. “The entire Everts family of five again completed solo competition: Eric, Candace, Logan, Kate and Grace,” he said. “The Everts did this in 2006, also. The entire Johnson family solo’d: Bruce, Pam and Arianna.” Sholar added, “The team section has a history of humorous and clever team names. The first team in 2007 was “Iron Mann” in 1:00:56, consisting of Laurie Palicki (swim and bike) with her fifth-grade son Lee Mann (run). Just 21 seconds behind was father-son team “10% Physical” with fifth-grader Steve Miller swimming and running a sandwich around father Tom’s biking.” This event has happened annually since 1982. “In the early 1980s it was called the Rusty Kid,” Sholar explained. “The team section was added in 1990. In 2000 the course was changed, to a simplified path, to match the hub and routes used for RustMan, but using fewer loops: Two airfield bike See FAMILY, Page 10Family members of all ages compete in the lagoon swim leg of the Rusty Family.

The competitive solo contestants do not use artificial propulsion however, unless you count the bike.” The behindthe-scene’s team helped. “Twenty-five volunteers helped the event run smoothly and Lee Allas made gourmet, handmade, hamburgers for all those contestants and volunteers,” Sholar said. Rusty Family is sponsored by the Kwajalein Running Club. “The KRC was pleased to have a combined total of 203 contestants at the 2007 RustMan and Rusty Family triathlons,” Sholar said. He added, “Rusty Family is a three-legged race of sorts. Downright fun.” FAMILY from Page 9 Julianne Kirchner took rst in the Rusty Family women's division. She completed the event in 56:10.
