Thumbs Down Religion in Marshall Islands Most Marshallese are Protestants, and as a whole they are very religious. While the largest church in the nation is the United Church of Christ, there are many other Protestant denominations represented, like Assembly of God, Baptist and Seventh Day Adventists. The Catholic Church also has established a strong presence in the islands. In recent years, the Church of Latter-day Saints has also become established. Sundays are set aside for rest and relaxation and attending church services. Alakai Chavana for being sel ess on her 10th birthday this year. Instead of asking for presents for herself, she asked her friends to bring a pair of used or new ip ops to donate to kids on Ebeye. She came up with the idea all on her own. Way to go, Alakai!... to individuals who smoke while carrying children on the same bicycle – this is a complete disregard for the child’s health.Thumbs Up!Photo by Callie Chavana


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 2, 2013Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School wins national honor for mock electionHourglass ReportsKwajalein Jr./Sr. High School was formally announced the winner of the 2012 My Voice National Student Mock Election Awards sponsored by the Pearson Foundation. Winners were honored in ve categories: statewide, school district, school, classroom and student-led. The awards recognize the students, teachers, administrators and many others who helped advance civic engagement across the nation. KHS was honored for their outstanding contributions to teaching democracy. Ric Fullerton, government teacher at KHS, has organized mock elections for the past three presidential elections. He wanted his students to feel a signi cant impact and encouraged all students to seek out information regarding the presidential candidates and issues. “Groundbreaking American educator Dr. Ralph Tyler taught us that children learn from what they do, not what their teachers do; in turn we applaud the creative educators who used the My Voice National Student Mock Election to motivate students to ‘learn by doing,’” said National Student/Parent Mock Election President Gloria Kirshner. “Our goal is to help young people understand what ‘government of the people, by the people, and for the people’ really means. By empowering the next generation to share their opinions about the issues that matter most and participate in civic discourse, we shape the future of our nation.” “Engaging students in a dialogue and inspiring them to share their views is one of the most important things we can do,” said Pearson Foundation President and CEO Mark Nieker. “The Pearson Foundation, along with our valued partners, is honored to present the KHS students play out a mock election in November 2012 that earned them national recognition.2012 My Voice National Student Mock Election Awards to an admirable group of educators and students.” In 2012, the Pearson Foundation created the My Voice™ National Student Mock Election. A combination of two great initiatives, the My Voice National Student Mock Election is built on the rich legacy of the National Student/Parent Mock Election, the country’s largest civic engagement project, and on My Voice, the leading name in student voice. To date this program has reached more than 10 million students and continues to engage students, parents, and educators in the democratic process. Behind the scenes helpers like Kori Dowell were also thanked and recognized for efforts during the election months in November 2012.Photo by Chris Delisio Photo by Eva Seelye


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 2, 2013 Photos by Eva SeelyeBy Molly Premo Media Services Intern The Pinewood Derby was held Monday starting at 1 p.m. in the MP Room. This event is put on by the Boy Scouts and their leaders. Cub Scouts, who range from rst to fth grades, are each given materials to design, build and decorate a car. There were two workshops held that lasted 1-2 hours for them to build their cars. Most Cub Scouts attended both of these workshops. After they nished putting together their cars, they took them home to name and decorate them. This could also take 1-2 hours to put all the nishing touches on them. There were 15 Cubs Scouts who participated in the derby. Ten contestants were enticed to take part in the open race for anyone who wanted to build a car and compete, and a sibling division attracted three competitors. The race track was set up at the end of the stage reaching almost to the end of the room. The setup was primarily done by the Scout leaders with help from a few parents. The older Boy Scouts who helped with the derby pulled the switch to release the four cars to compete in a heat. The track was connected to a computer, so as soon as the race nished, the winners and their times were projected on a screen for the audience to see. At the end of the derby, the winnings were calculated and there was an awards assembly presided over by Jon Mitchell. Second-grader Matai McCollum came in rst place overall and said his favorite part of the derby was being able to build his car with his family. Above, Quincy Breen, Matai and Makoa McCollum watch hopefully as their cars race.Isaac Parker is one of the Boy Scout helpers at the Pinewood Derby held in the MP Room this year.Feeling the need for speedAnnual Pinewood Derby big hit for Kwaj Scouts Overall Winners 1st Place: Matai McCollum 2nd Place: Quincy Breen 3rd Place: Hunter Gray Winners by Den Tiger Den: Evan Mitchell Wolf Den: Matai McCollum Bear Den: Quincy Breen Webelo Den: Yuto Kaneko Cub Scout Choice Best Car: Caleb Parker Best Design: Sean Hepler Most Creative: Hunter Gray Best Name: Jacob Long (“Flaming Demon”) Sibling Category Winner: Maliana McCollum Open Category Winner: Jeff “Miracle” Jones

Below, Kwajalein student, Grace DeLange, shares an original song.Putting life experiences, emotions into song with Delaney DavisBy Molly Premo Media Services InternDelaney Davis rst came to Kwajalein last October to visit her aunt, Denise Dorn. She enjoyed Kwaj so much that before she left, she auditioned for the Quality of Life Committee to come back as a musician to entertain residents. So far on this trip she has played for audiences on Valentine’s Day and Feb. 23 on Kwaj, Feb. 16 on Roi-Namur, and even made it over to Enniburr. Recently, Davis put on a song writing class on Feb. 22 at the Namo Weto Youth Center for anyone interested in learning how to compose songs. Participants in the workshop varied from sixth graders to adults. The night started with Davis giving tips on what she has found to be the easiest ways to begin to write songs, as well as the basic form of a song. Davis talked about her experience with writing songs and asked the audience what methods they have found to work for them. After going over the basics, Davis thought it would be fun to have a jam session with everyone showing their skills. High school junior John Sholar pulled out a guitar to accompany sixth-grader Grace DeLange while she sang “Halleluiah.” Then to practice some song writing, Davis suggested that everyone go around the room and say a line which were all eventually put together to make a song with an island theme. Rachel DeLange said, “It was a great way to show how easy and fun song writing can be.” Then Grace, after getting comfortable with everyone, decided to share one of the songs she had written called “Wrong to Fall For You.”The night ended with Davis singing a few of her own songs. The rst number she sang was called “Loose Change” and the second, “Let the Stars Fall,” which she wrote when she was 17.Davis has been to a few workshops, but has never held one herself. She has also studied music theory, taken a six-week song writing class at Berkeley School of Music during high school, and later went back for another class in college. Davis has always loved and had an interest in music, but interestingly has received very little formal training. Her rst instrument was an alto saxophone that she played in the fth-grade band. After that, she would pick up instruments on her own, including the guitar, which she taught herself when she was 13. She began to sing when she came back from Berkeley at 17. Davis said her comfort with crowds has come with time and it is easiest if she is regularly performing for people. She has produced one main CD but has made others for family and friends. It can take from an hour to a couple of days for Davis to write a song. Her inspiration comes from life experiences and big events and it comes at random times for her. 5 SaturdayMarch22013 Below Kwajalein student Grace DeLange shares an o ri g inal son g. em After going over the n to have a jam session Hi Hi h gh p a n ” T e e ve ve v e n a t w bl bl e wr i g a f “ L o e w r p s, m us l e y ba n in t e r y a n a r a d m e n ch e be r o m o rt i t m n e m h o u a s x pe r a n d j h h s h ch oo l l j ju i ni or J J h oh n n y sixt h gr a d er Grace Th e n to pract ic e some e e ry ry on on e e go go a a ro ro un un d d th th e e n tua lly put to g et h er to w a y to s h ow h ow eas y i wi h th ever y one, d d ec id id i tten ca ll e d “ Wron g to f ew o f h er own son g s. o ose C h an ge ” an d t h e r ote w h en s h e was 1 7. b ut h as never h e ld ic t h eor y ta k en a Sc h oo l o f Music a c k f or anot h e r t erest in mul itt l e f orma l al to saxod e b an d n ts on s h e e m u r on g r iences d om


6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 2, 2013 Girls sing and dance together on stage at the dance in the CRC Room 6 Sunday night.Right, girl friends and a father play “Just Dance Kids” Sunday night during the Father Daughter Dance.By Molly Premo Media Services InternOn Sunday, Corlett Recreation Center Room 6 was turned into a Garden Gala with streamers, lights and balloons of pink, white and purple for the annual PTO Father Daughter Dance. To go with the theme, plants were brought in and lined the sides of the room. This year’s coordinator was Masina McCollum, with decorations done by Jennifer Cossey and her crew. The Boy Scout Room held the food that included chicken and rice plus sweets and punch. A Wii gaming system was set up in an adjacent room playing the game “Just Dance Kids” in which girls could compete against their fathers and friends. Iwalani Furgeson was on hand to photograph the girls and fathers in their formal attire. The stage became the dance oor and it was full of girls singing and dancing to their favorite songs. The DJs of the night were Danielle Rivera, Allison Tomas and Trey Tomas, who are taking a DJ class through the youth center with Clarence Beal. Second-grader Mia Wase said her favorite part of the night was playing “Just Dance.” Cherish Corder had three favorite parts: “Just Dance,” dancing on the main oor and eating yummy treats. Jim Cossey has been to many Father Daughter Dances with his daughters Leightyn, Addison and Graeson. As Graeson is a sixth-grader, this was his last chance to enjoy this event. The best part of every dance for Jim has been dancing with his daughters. The last song of the night was a slow song for one last chance for fathers to dance with their daughters.
