This holiday season, it was the students at Ebeye Calvary School who were the lucky recipients. The Gideon and Chavana families have lived on Kwajalein for 15 years. They decided that this holiday they wanted to put together a book drive and donate to a school on Ebeye. It just so happened that Lana GideonÂ’s sister, Sonja Smith, is a retired school teacher in Abilene, TX. That is what really got the ball rolling. Smith was able to contact schools in her area and they donated not only educational books for students, but also teaching books and videos. Smith also went through her church for donations. After a few weeks, there were a total of 14 boxes of books collected and sent to Kwajalein. Books were for all ages and ranged from Dr. Suess to Disney to Barbie to Beverly Cleary. There were even books on tape donated. On Dec. 7, Flynn and Lana Gideon, Sheryl Gottesman and Stella Lorok got together to deliver the books. They coordinated with the Marine Department and Dock Security Checkpoint to load the books and take them to Ebeye on the uncrowded 2:45 p.m. scheduled ferry. The books were taken to Ebeye Calvary School. Principal Obtan Jibas met the group and thanked them for their donation. There were 16 children still at school, practicing songs for the upcoming holiday season. Most of the books were stored in ObtanÂ’s of ce for the teachers to go through and sort; however, Flynn couldnÂ’t resist handing out a few books to the children there at the school that day. He rummaged through the boxes to nd age appropriate books for the kids. They thanked him and eagerly started ipping through them. Lorok is working with the school to start a reading program with the RiÂ’katak students who attend Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School. Her hope is that those students can visit Ebeye Calvary School on Mondays and use the newly donated books to help the younger children increase their English reading and speaking skills. The students at Ebeye Calvary School show off their new books.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012 Kwajalein High School students and teachers in the Girl Talk group visit the Ebeye Hospital to hand out bags of baby items to new mothers.Photo courtesy of Jennifer NewberryLocal Girl Talk group helps babies, mothersBy Rachel Flaugh and Renu Frase KHS Student Guest Writers Girl Talk is a peer-to-peer mentoring program, where high school girls help mentor middle school girls. The objective of Girl Talk is to help girls deal with the triumphs and trials of early teenage years. The older girls have the opportunity to share their experiences as positive role models, while the middle school girls obtain chances to learn from their older peers. Along the way, the girls volunteer and perform services to help their communities. While doing all this, they improve their con dence and selfesteem. They also develop greater compassion and gain perspective about the world around them. One of the community projects that the Girl Talk group developed is Operation Baby Bag. The community donates baby items and the girls make bags for the women and babies on Ebeye. The bags are separated by gender and are decorated with many colors. These baby bags are then taken to Ebeye each month to be given to the mothers with new babies. Our objective is not to discourage mothers from having more babies, but to provide them both with necessary articles. This project is still active and hopefully will be for many years. On Oct. 21 and Dec. 3, Girl Talk went to Ebeye and handed the mothers and babies their bags. They also got a chance to tour the hospital and see some of the newborn babies. The Girl Talk organization hopes that they will be able to take baby bags over every month in the future. Girl Talk would also like to mention they are always accepting donations to help out with the Operation Baby Bag Project. There are drop boxes at both the high school and elementary school of ces. Helpful items are: baby clothes (newborn), diapers, wipes, blankets and anything else newborns and their mothers might need. Thank you for your help! If you would like more information, please contact Girl Talk advisors Masina McCollum, Jennifer Newberry, Anne Dowell or Alex McGlinn.

Right, Bess Buchanan smiles as she starts her tenth and final lap of the marathon.Photos by Sheila Gideon15-year-old finishes first at marathonBy Bob Sholar KRC Vice PresidentKwajalein Running Club conducted the 31st Annual Paupers’ Marathon and Relay on Monday. The race headquarters was at Namo Weto Youth center. The course consisted of 10 approximately 2.6-mile loops around the north side of Kwajalein Island, traveling largely on Ocean and Lagoon Roads. Nine residents completed the entire marathon, most of them electing to start at 3 a.m., coinciding with the 5 a.m. start of the Honolulu Marathon, two time zones away. Running his rst marathon ever, the overall winner was 15-year-old ninth-grader Kendall Westhoff in 4 hours, 15 minutes and 57 seconds. First for the ladies was Christi Cardillo in 4:39:20. Personal bests for repeat Paupers were recorded by Christina Sylvester and Victor Langhans. “Father Vic” is 68 years old! Christina ran the entire race with her husband Ron. Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School teacher, Jon Jahnke, ran his seventh Paupers’ Marathon and holds the distinction of most completions, including a very speedy 3:41:35 back in 2008. Jahnke is considered the “grandfather” of the Paupers’ Marathon. Some runners need decades to suf ciently forget that acute soreness often felt the day after a marathon, before attempting another. Long-time resident Bess Buchanan ran her rst Kwajalein marathon ever. Her last marathon was at Boston in 1984. There were just two teams this year. Michael Sykes, Wyatt Jones and David Sholar, all ninth graders, named themselves “Merriam Webster Dictionary,” and nished in 3:48:43. An almost all Army team, “Go Army! Plus One,” consisted of Dean Wiley, Luke Koerschner, Bobby Mills, Jim Albrecht and the “Plus one,” Richard Westhoff of MIT/LL; they nished in 4:04:01. Thanks to Kwajalein Schools Superintendent, Al Robinson, for arriving before 3 a.m. to lead the timing and marshal the nish line. 2012 Paupers’ Marathon ResultsPlaceNameTime1 Kendall Westhoff4:15:57 2 Jon Jahnke4:20:44 3 Christi Cardillo4:39:20 4 Bess Buchanan5:39:46 5 Christina Sylvester5:46:07 6 Ron Sylvester5:46:07 7 Stephanie Los6:02:11 8 Ted Trimble6:02:11 9 Victor Langhans6:08:46Team Results1 “Merriam Webster Dictionary” Michael Sykes Wyatt Jones David Sholar 3:48:43 2 “Go Army!

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012Article and photos by Laura Pasquarella-Swain ECCF President The Enniburr ChildrenÂ’s Christmas Fund Annual Christmas Party took place Monday. Roi-Namur residents started loading the trucks at 8 a.m. to take all the gifts and goodies to the pier. Once they arrived at the Enniburr Pier, they went to the school, unloaded supplies, set up the games and the Roi residents played with all the kids. Kalua pork, rice, pineapple, cookies and sodas were served to the island residents at lunch time. After lunch, a song and dance program was put on by the kids from the school. After the program, Santa came and gave the kids candy and the ECCF presented gifts to the community. The community received a new volleyball net and balls; new basketball rims, nets and balls; baseball bats, gloves and balls; kick balls; a wif eball set for the younger children and two Baggo board games. The day was lled with a lot of Christmas spirit and laughter from the 200 students that attend school on Enniburr. The ECCF also donated a $280 check to the school for payment of 20 students whose families could not afford to pay for them to go to school this year. There was also a plaque dedicated to former Roi police of cer David Buschow, who lived and worked on Roi for a few years. When he PCSÂ’d he had a tragic accident on a survival course he had signed up for. His family knew how much Buschow loved the residents and especially the children from Enniburr, and donated money to the ECCF Fund. This year, former ECCF President Joe Coleman had a plaque made in honor and dedication of Sgt. Buschow. The plaque was placed on the classrooms that the ECCF built last year. The ECCF would like to thank everyone who donated money and their personal time to help make this party another great event for this great cause. On behalf of the ECCF we would like to wish a Merry Christmas to all.
