3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013Evelyn Smith displays her wall planter along with other clay pieces at the art show Oct. 25.Island artists featured at annual art showArticle and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor Island artists of all ages showed off their most impressive works at the annual Fall Arts Show at the Religious Education Building Oct. 25. Tables were full of pottery masterpieces, canvas paintings, sh prints, wooden signs and more. The event was organized by Hobby Shop Coordinator, Denise Dorn, who also provided a table full of goodies that included cookies, cakes and coffee. The event is held each year as an opportunity for island residents to see what can be created in the Hobby Shop. “Even on this small island, there is so much to do,” Dorn commented. She views the Hobby Shop as a way to express yourself. Dorn, herself, prefers to create with clay. She loves to make pottery slabs and come up with new ideas that will inspire the other Hobby Shop users. She recently designed a set of Halloween-themed cups that became a popular item for Hobby Shop patrons. Dorn’s intention as coordinator is to “inspire people and show them it’s not hard [to do],” she said. While some artists showed off their Hobby Shop creations, some also displayed art they created at their homes. Rose Wrobel featured a canvas painting of a duck, along with very unique Dia de los Muertos dolls. Kathy Skinner exhibited her handmade wooden signs with catchy island sayings. For some artists, the Hobby Shop is a family affair. The Baldy and Weiland families had several pieces of art featured from various members. Marcus Weiland was most proud of his bright red Arkansas Razorbacks pottery slab, but also boasted of the pieces made by his children and wife. Kwajalein Schools Art Teacher, Jane Woundy, said the Art Show was “so refreshing and healthy to see.” While she often only sees the art work done by island children, she said it was nice for her to see their parents’ work and where some of their artistic talents may come from. She also got the opportunity to see different types of art that she doesn’t normally cover in her classes, such as batiks. There are several special events scheduled for the Hobby Shop in the upcoming months. Check the Hourglass and Roller for information about an ornament painting class and the annual open house holiday party in December. Rose Wrobel’s Dia de los Muertos dolls are a few of the unique art pieces at the show. The Weiland family features several of their clay pieces at the annual Fall Arts Show at the REB Oct. 25. Kathy Skinner displays one of her large handmade wooden signs at the art show. Patty Alejandro shows off one of her intricate batiks at the art show.


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013Photo by Jordan VinsonFC Swollen claim title of men’s soccer champions for third time in five yearsFC Swollen are awarded the men’s league coconut cup trophy after defeating team Juice 4-2 in the championship game Oct. 23. By Sheila Gideon Managing Editor The men’s soccer league was smaller than usual this year, with only four teams competing; this included three adult teams and the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School Spartans varsity team. Each team squared off three times during the regular season before moving on to playoffs. FC Swollen has developed a pattern of claiming the title of men’s soccer champions on an every other year basis. In the last ve years, FC Swollen won the championship game in 2009, 2011 and again this year, defeating team Juice in the championship game on Oct. 23. There was a league rule change this year that dictated regular season games would no longer go into overtime play; this resulted in numerous tied games throughout the season, which is something rarely seen in Kwaj soccer. Team Locals tied Juice twice before nally squeaking out a win the third time around. They met a fourth time in the playoffs. Juice must have received one heck of a pep talk from Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau, who could easily be considered the biggest soccer enthusiast on island, coming out to cheer for all teams throughout the season. Juice rallied and executed exceptional play, crushing the Locals in a 5-2 upset. League leaders FC Swollen competed against the fourth-place seeded Spartans for their playoff game. Spartans faced a unique Kwaj challenge: their coach, Kenny Leines, played on their opposing team. Spartans put up a good ght, led by top offensive players Keith Brady, Austin Wiley and the Wase brothers, JJ and Jared. In the end, coach Leines and his teammates showed no mercy and headed to the championship game with a 5-1 victory over the Spartans. The championship game secured a large crowd of spectators, who remained eerily quiet throughout the rst 10 minutes of the game. FC Swollen quickly changed that with two exciting goals in the rst half. Forward Alex Coleman nailed a header into the back of the net off a bounce pass across the box. Only ve minutes later, FC Swollen was awarded a direct kick outside the box after a foul by Juice. Coleman fed the ball to Leines, who got some serious air and scored a header goal of his own. FC Swollen’s offense was led by Coleman, Leines and Rob Ewbank this season. Juice bounced back after shouts of, “Let’s dial it up, baby,” from Prioleau on the sidelines. Jay Monnot did just that; he ran up from a defensive position, blew past two FC Swollen defenders to score Juice’s rst point of the game. Unfortunately, later in that same half, Monnot also accidentally scored a defensive goal, putting the score at 3-1 at halftime.The second half started with a rain shower and the wet ball and grass seemed to slow play. Big kicks from both team’s defense had the ball ping-ponging back and forth and play was sluggish with lots of offside’s calls. The exciting part of the second half was the defensive play by both teams. Each had several close calls due to slips in the mud, but they were able to keep the ball out of the net. Juice got some momentum back after a penalty kick was awarded due to an illegal slide tackle in the box. Juice’s top scorer of the season, James Young, planted the ball in the corner of the net, out of reach of FC Swollen’s goalie Nate Jones despite an energetic dive attempt to save it. The intensity of the game increased in the last 10 minutes of play. Players had no problem sacri cing their bodies to make a play. The excitement continued when Leines intercepted a goal kick and got off a quick shot. The game ended 4-2, and FC Swollen claimed the coveted coconut trophy for the men’s league yet again.

The rst half started off under overcast skies in the Spartans’ favor, with a mess of blue jerseys plying pressure deep in the green team’s back eld. But several sloppy strikes from the Spartan offense and a number of other missed opportunities gave the Go Green Gos the time to gain their composure and settle themselves on the leader board. The green team’s Krystal Peterson broke the ice in the 17th minute, connecting with the ball 25 yards out and sending it sailing over goalie Dori DeBrum’s head. Green team’s Kaylee West was able to kick in a goal eight minutes later, putting the Go Green Gos ahead by two before the end of the half. The second half began with a series of give-and-gos between the Spartans offense, giving the blue strikers a couple chances at the green goal. But an attempt that went wide right in the 33rd minute and a great save by Go Green Gos’ Geraldine Turituri four minutes later upset both the Spartans players and their throng Spartans defeat Go Green Gos, take home 2013 Coconut Trophy of fans chanting in support on the north bleachers. It wasn’t until the 42nd minute that the momentum began shifting against the women in the green jerseys. Leightyn Cossey connected with a goal, sending it out of reach of Turituri. A minute later, West was given a yellow card after knocking a Spartan player to the ground; it was the rst foul called by the referees in 43 minutes of play. Though the blue team’s penalty kick failed, Annie Hepler nally kicked one in the net shortly after in the 49th minute, tying the score and sending the Spartan fans into a riot. Three minutes later, Cossey took advantage of a de ected strike that bounced away from Turituri and kicked it into the net, scoring her second goal and putting the Spartans ahead 3-2. Several aggressive rushes by Peterson, West and Jane Erekson penetrated deep into the Spartan back eld soon after, forcing the ladies in blue to put up their best defense. But Green was never able to gain the last goal they needed to put the match into overtime. A nal attempt by Peterson in the 59th minute was gobbled up by DeBrum, and shortly after the referees announced the end of the match. The Spartans win Tuesday night gave the team its second consecutive championship title and earned the ladies their rst undefeated season in at least ve years. Though a few opposing squads managed to end matches in a tie along the way, not a single team was able to defeat the Spartans in 2013. One explanation for the increased number of tied matches this year was the rule change that banned overtime minutes in regular season games, a measure meant to cut down on long, drawn-out games. Another peculiarity this season was the slim roster that each team had to deal with; because not as many signed up to play, teams consisted of nine players on the eld instead of the traditional 10. The overall playoff season played host to a few noteworthy upsets. One memorable moment was Coed I’s defeat at the hands of Coed II—a squad that had not won a single game all season until then. The Go Green Gos’ semi nal win over K.A.T., in which a penalty kick was awarded to Green in the last 15 seconds of double overtime, ended with considerable controversy.Spartans I are crowned the women’s soccer champs for the second year in a row.

7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013 For those interested in learning the Marshallese language, a good starting point would be knowing the alphabet of the language and how these letters are sounded or pronounced. Here is a guide to help you along As with many languages, Marshallese has some exceptions, but the guide should prove useful in most situations. Give it a try and see how you fare. In MemoriamRev. Alexander Harold McNally was born in Hamilton, Ontario on Jan. 11, 1930, and died Sept. 12, 2013. McNally served as the chaplain of Island Memorial Chapel here on Kwajalein from 1994-99. He lived here with his wife, Ruth, whom he married in 1955. McNally is survived by his wife of 58 years, sister May Connelly and brother Tom McNally, daughters, Shelley Bartels, Darlene Miller, and son Thomas McNally and his ve beloved grandchildren, Jordan, Colin and Trevor Bartels and Julia and Emily Miller.Domestic violence awareness monthBy Ray Drefus U.S. Army Resilience TrainerDomestic Violence Awareness Month is an opportunity to inform service members, Department of Army civilians, contractors and all family members about domestic violence. Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault or other abusive behavior perpetrated by an intimate partner against another. It is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, race, religion, nationality or educational background. Violence against women is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior, and thus is part of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence results in physical injury, psychological trauma and sometimes death. The consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and truly last a lifetime. Did you know?: • One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. • An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by an intimate partner each year. • Historically, victims have most often been targeted by someone they knew. • Victims who are 20-24 years of age are at the greatest risk of nonfatal intimate partner violence. • Most cases of domestic violence are never reported to the police. What can you do if you are a victim of domestic violence? Report it to the Provost Marshall Of ce, Kwajalein Police Department, Employee Assistance Program director, chaplain or your health care provider. For more information, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233. a Fluctuates between father and America.

Event staff included diving instructors Jeremy Owens and Keith Huston, who monitored the safety aspects of the event. Junior divers John Tippetts and Chelsea Engelhard also supported the event, helping with tanks. Over two dozen people came out to participate. Non-diving family members came out to help carry gear, take photos, snorkel above the carvers and just to enjoy the day together. Twelve pumpkin carvers entered the water to shape their gourds into works of art. For many divers, this was their rst experience carving a pumpkin underwater. Divers and families were treated to a BBQ lunch while the judges poured over the carved pumpkin entries. Each of the junior scuba divers ages 10-15 were honored for their participation. Bronwyn and Ian Galbraith, Elise Hebert and Tippetts were awarded a KSC T-shirt or towel. Part of KSC’s mission is to promote diving, and young divers participating in events with their family sure lends to that goal. The awards didn’t stop there. The Hebert family were big winners again this year with their entry of ‘Noni the Wicked Witch of the Water’ which took judges’ favorite and earned two $50 gift certi cates. Firsttime participant Joseph Dye and his four-time pumpkin carving veteran father Mark won the au natural category, which scored them a $25 gift certi cate and KSC hooded sweatshirt. Carvers Lacy Baldy, Mike and Tracy McConnell, Dr. Paulette Galbraith, Dr. Gilbert Ghearing and a few others also walked away with gift certi cates for their contest entries. Be sure to look for the upcoming KSC 2013 Underwater Turkey Hunt organized by KSC Safety and Training Of cer Doug Hepler. Mike and Tracy McConnell won a prize for their octopus pumpkin carved underwater.The Hebert family won judge’s favorite for their witch pumpkin.
