2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013 Family Structure (part 1 of 4) An old Marshallese saying, “Jitdam kapeel,” advises that asking about your family relationships guarantees wisdom. In the island environment, everything from basic tasks such as gathering and cooking food to more labor intensive projects like building houses and canoes are only possible through group efforts. Knowing your family relations was, and in many cases still is, the basis of survival. For Marshallese, identities and obligations are based on their family unit, their family clan and their home island.The on-island Print Shop is currently waiting on equipment for printers that publish the Hourglass and TV Guide. Please be patient regarding the print quality until repairs can be made. We apologize for the poor quality these past few months. Electronic versions of the paper can be viewed online after the 2 week OPSEC delay at: http:// www.smdc.army.mil/2008/Publications. asp#Kwajalein_Hourglass.Thumbs Up!... to the gentleman who assisted our daughter by paying for the remainder of her school supplies when she was short on cash.

Tony Savage, KRS Business Operation Supervisor, has been offering golf programs to residents in order to increase usage at the golf course. He has especially targeted women, offering several classes to beginners. The Red, White and Blue Fun Tournament on Monday was the perfect opportunity for these beginners to come out and show off their newly-learned skills. There were 14 teams consisting of four players who participated in the golf tournament. The game was played using the Best Ball format; each player on the team hits and then they decide which hit is best and everyone then shoots from that spot. The only catch was you had to use each team memberÂ’s drive and rst putt at least once during the nine holes. Teams ranged from newbies, to experienced golfers, to visiting college students. Each team was given a handicap based on each individual playerÂ’s handicap, which ended up being pretty high for some teams, and rather low for others. If you didnÂ’t have a handicap, you were given a zero, which de nitely hurt some teamsÂ’ chances. Even with high handicaps, some of the newer golfers were still unable to keep up with skills and experience of long-time Holmberg Fairway veterans. After nine holes, a few bouts of heavy rain and lots Article and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorSometimes, cooking dinner or going to the grocery store is the last thing you want to do; and if you just brought home a new baby, are recovering from an illness or are dealing with a family crisis, these simple tasks can feel overwhelming. In the States, there are services to support you in your time of need; there is on Kwajalein now, too. The Christian WomenÂ’s Fellowship, a registered private organization, initiated the Kwaj Caring Meals program in May. Their mission is to provide meals and grocery services to on-island residents in need; these needs could be for any number of reasons including family crisis, a new baby, illness, or simply being new to the island or PCSing soon. Whatever the reasoning behind your needs, Kwaj Caring Meals is there to help.The program was initiated by Judy McGuire. She participated in a similar program at her church back in Las Cruces, N.M. McGuireÂ’s background is in nursing, in particular, home care. She has lived on Kwajalein for one year, although this is her third tour. She is about to take over as CWF president when current president Joyce Dashner heads back to the States on Tuesday.The Kwaj Caring Meals program is open to all island residents. Whether you live in family housing or the bachelor quarters, belong to the church or not, you simply need to contact McGuire or a team leader to receive services. Kwaj Caring Meals caters to food preferences, allergies, number of family members and considers whether you have children when they prepare your meals. Meals are delivered in disposable containers to reduce cleanup and the need to return dishes. Typically, meals are large enough to provide leftovers for the following day, so meal deliveries are usually every two days. All delivered meals are free of cost. Kwaj Caring Meals will also handle your grocery shopping for you if needed. Simply provide them with a list, they do the shopping and then Surfway delivers. The program is coordinated by a group of volunteers. While they

The program is designed to deliver meals and groceries to island residents in need or crisis.CARING MEALS, from page 3 have a number of team leaders already, they are looking for more people willing to cook and grocery shop. In particular, they are in need of volunteers who live in BQs; this way, they will have better insight into what grocery items should be purchased and the best method to deliver meals. If you are interested in volunteering, or are need of services, contact McGuire by email at judymcguire2@gmail.com. Tina Wiley was one of the rst island residents to receive services from Kwaj Caring Meals after she hurt her foot and was unable to walk for several weeks. “When I was down, it really was a relief to know that I didn’t have to worry about what my family was going to do for dinner. The community rallied together and provided delicious, nutritious meals to us for several weeks.” Wiley not only looked forward to the meals, but also to the fellowship and visits from volunteers. “It gave me a chance to visit and tell them how much their thoughtfulness meant to me and my family.” Wiley now volunteers for the program. “I want to repay all the kindness!” The Christian Women’s Fellowship meets monthly, September through May. They offer a luncheon a fellowship program that is open to all island women. They participate in several events and charity donations throughout the year. They sell their CWF cookbook at craft fairs, donate baskets for the YYWC silent auction, coordinate a Christian movie trade program, sponsor a book club/Bible study, and collect shoes and Bibles to hand out in the RMI. The CWF also offers monetary donations to families in crisis, and maintains a Prayer Chain Ministry. One of their biggest programs is the Kwaj Caring Hearts, where their quilting ministry sends out handmade prayer quilts to people in need locally and stateside. For more information regarding CWF, contact McGuire. Marion Ruf ng is the new counseling psychologist for the Employee Assistance Program. While new this year, this is Ruf ng’s third tour on Kwajalein. She most recently came from Camp Zama, Japan, where she worked for the U.S. Army at the USAG-J mental health and substance abuse program. Ruf ng has no family members on island with her, but she has a son serving in the African Command who is currently stationed in Vicenza, Italy. Ruf ng said Kwajalein is a special place and she is looking forward to seeing friends again, and unlike Japan, no traf c. “It is my pleasure being afforded the opportunity of serving on Kwajalein,” Ruf ng said. “I invite the community to drop in; you don’t have to have a problem to see me.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013of laughs, the top four teams were awarded prizes for the lowest score. Three teams actually tied with a net score of 28. A random drawing was held to determine rst through third place. Even though it was random luck they ended up in rst, this team de nitely deserved it after scoring ve birdies in a row! The rst place team was Jeff Beackman, Jeff Beckley, Rudy Gil and Sean Johnson. The second place team was Milton Barnett, Pat Dowell, John Finley and Flynn Gideon. The third place team was Pat Branham, Larry Cavender, Brent Peterson and Carmel Shearer. The fourth place team was Danny Bittner, Rita Dominguez, John Hutchins and Dirk Roesler with a net 29. There was also an award for the highest score, which went to all new golfers Jane Cavender, Patrice Kramer, Shelby Rowe and Amy Spock; each player was given a box of ladies golf balls. The one special prize hole during the tournament was Closest to the Pin (on your rst shot) on hole 6. The actual winner was Dominguez, but since she had already won a prize, it was given to the next closest person; the team consisting of Paul Allas, Selentina Beniamina, Tracy and Rihna Hampson snagged that prize, including a sleeve of golf balls for each player. A BBQ at BogeyÂ’s followed the tournament, where players recapped their games, either bragging or shamefully recounting each hole. The next fun tournament will be held in August, and the Kwajalein Golf Association will be gearing up for the Kwajalein Open Tournament, to be held sometime in October.GOLF TOURNAMENT, from page 3 N a n c y M a u r e r Nancy Maurer R o b M e d r a n o Rob Medrano J i m H a l l Jim Hall M i l t o n B a r n e t t Milton Barnett D e b C r a w f o r d Deb Crawford C a r m e l S h e a r e r a n d L a r r y C a v e n d e r Carmel Shearer and Larry Cavender F i r s t p l a c e t e a m : J e f f B e a c k m a n J e f f B e c k l e y First place team: Jeff Beackman, Jeff Beckley, R u d y G i l a n d S e a n J o h n s o n Rudy Gil and Sean Johnson

The weekend began with Bingo on July 27. Roi residents were polled earlier this year about which new activities they would like to see on Roi; Bingo was one of them. Kim Yarnes, deputy Community Activities manager on Kwajalein, and Laura Pasquarella-Swain, Roi Community Activities manager, hosted the game. Each game prize was a percentage of the money taken in; all money taken in was given out as prizes. Besides the “suspiciously lucky Kwajalein resident” who kept winning all the games, Bingo had a great turn out and will likely con-

Players were sure to recycle their cards by turning them into paper airplanes and used them to distract fellow players during the game. The fun continued on Sunday night. Local band, Smells Like Fish debuted their second tour, “The More You Drink, the Better We Sound.” The band’s rst performance was back in March 2013. Allan Foreman is a Jack of all Trades when it comes to music. Not only does he play lead guitar, but he sings and plays keyboard. He is also a master synthesizer; he adds in tracks to accommodate for the instruments the band doesn’t have, like drums. Shelley Easter and Stacey Helt trade off as lead and back up singers. Between the three of them, they were able to produce some breathtaking harmonies. “Bassmaster B” rounds out the band on bass guitar. John Mohr helps out the band by overseeing the sound mixer. It was immediately obvious that the band has been practicing quite a bit over these last four months. They began with an a cappella rendition of “Pine Box,” that drew large cheers from the audience. It took a little time to coax people onto the dance oor, but once they started, they didn’t stop. Easter got even more people onto the dance oor when she proposed a challenge: “We know Roi folks can dance – how about you TDY folks?!” Several TDY workers rose up to the challenge, but none as well as Bert Waldron Jr. The dance oor stayed full all night, and when the band tried to wrap it up for the evening, chants of, “One more song!” convinced them to do just that.Bert Waldron Jr., gestures to other TDY folks to join him on the dance floor after he answers Shelley Easter’s dance challenge.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013 Despite all of the obvious jokes that can be made about “the bene ts of a cold shower” – there are some de nite medical bene ts to cooling your shower temperature to a reasonable (and probably much cooler than you are used to) temperature. Studies show that if you ask 100 people if they enjoy a hot shower, almost 75 percent will answer, “Yes.” Think about your own temperature preferences, and now learn a little about human body thermodynamics and temperature regulation. As Endotherms, human core temperature has a thermal set point around 98.6 degrees and is maintained by negative feedback systems. Skin blood ow, hair distribution, skin texture and thickness, amount of adipose (fatty) and muscle tissue distribution, and level of activity all play strategic roles in the maintenance of that set point and the ways our body adjusts to temperature variances. The brain hypothalamus receives information from the skin receptors as well as the temperature receptors for the blood in the brain.The hotter the water we expose out skin to, the more surface blood vessel dilation occurs. Blood pressure tends to decrease and muscle metabolism and activities changes. Hot water also dries out the keratinized (non-vascular super cial layers) of the skin surface and removes the essential oils from the skin surface, frequently worsening itching and skin irritation. There are other direct effects on more personal, sensitive areas that you can discuss with your doctor if you have any questions. There is a signi cant amount of data to suggest that the cooler the water temperature, the better reduction of in ammation, improved sleep patterning and less muscle irritation. Cooler showers have been shown to help clear the complexion, relieve fatigue, improve mental alertness, and in one study, actually helped with depression. Finally, the one caveat for cold showers is that you should talk to your doctor rst if you have a history of heart disease. So, enjoy your shower – and keep in mind the temperature and its effects on your body. — Paulette L. Foster-Galbraith, MD, DABFMIt’s no joke: cold showers have benefits • Now open on Sundays from 8 a.m.–2 p.m. • Open on Tuesday–Saturday: 6 a.m.–1:30 p.m. For questions, contact Telina Jacklick at 53445.FREE!

The change is aimed at further de ning the primetime and overnight programming blocks on AFN|family for the AFN audience. Beginning in early September, the evening programming block will be rebranded as AFN|pulse. “After analyzing audience feedback over the years, we wanted to create a way to clearly differentiate family programming from older skewing programming on the channel,” says Karreem Lowe, Chief of Entertainment Programming at the AFN Broadcast Center in California. “We think we’ve done just that by creating two unique identities on the channel – similar to Nickelodeon/Nick at Nite and Cartoon Network/Adult Swim here in the states.” The rebranding to AFN|pulse also allows AFN to maximize limited airtime on their channels. “We’ll be able to continue our effort to meet our viewer’s needs by delivering more stateside programming intended for an older demographic during primetime and late-night hours when most of our younger audience goes to sleep for the night, thus satisfying as much of the AFN audience as possible given the limited bandwidth available for channels,” Lowe added. AFN|pulse will air from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m., on Kwajalein channel 26 and Roi channel 5, seven days a week. All programming on AFN|pulse will be intended for and marketed toward the 18+ demographic. A transition hour of programming will begin at 7 p.m., with general audience programming that includes returning hit shows like The X-Factor, The Amazing Race, The Voice, and America’s Next Top Model After 8 p.m., the programming will “age up” with returning programs like Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries, and a few new shows for the fall season including the Vampire Diaries spinoff, The Originals and the Pretty Little Liars spinoff, Ravenswood Additionally, the hotly anticipated brand new fall offerings Sleepy Hollow and Tomorrow People will debut on AFN|pulse. Lastly, also new will be a late night talk show block featuring the Arsenio Hall Show followed by Chelsea Lately The AFN network is planning a multi-platform launch campaign that will both entice and inform the viewers. “This summer, people watching AFN will see a series of promos that will alert them to the change from AFN|family primetime to AFN|pulse,” says Eric Tassill, Chief of Marketing and Promotion at AFN. “We also want to excite the audience by giving them a glimpse of what to expect on AFN|pulse during the upcoming fall season.” Along with various TV spots, AFN will also be reaching out to viewers via their radio, web and social media platforms. When AFN|pulse goes live on the network, there will also be a dedicated microsite on www.myafn.net that viewers can visit to learn more about AFN|pulse, including a list of programming.
