With the cafeterias’ epic spread of traditional and local entrees—not to mention their decorative atmosphere—many made sure not to miss out on the feasts and the sense of camaraderie on Thanksgiving. Kudos to the chefs, cooks, and all of the workers of the Zamperini Dining Facility and Cafe Roi for a great job preparing the feasts for our plates. Your work is much appreciated!

Waiting for him at the Atoll Terminal on Kwaj were friends, family and the Kwajalein Fire Department, who hosed the pilot down after he stepped out of the Metro—a long-time honor and tradition for pilots’ nal ight. Hendrix ew for 10 years for Berry Aviation on U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll, but his career spans nearly four decades with both military and civilian xed wing aircraft and helicopters. He rst got off the ground with the U.S. Army, ying UH-1 “Huey” helicopters, Bell Cobras and Bell Kiowas on medevac, scout and attack missions. He later enjoyed a 21-year career ying international and domestic routes for both Eastern Airways and US Airways. Hendrix and his wife Sheri will PCS to Oregon next week.

The event, an annual highlight on the school’s calendar, serves as Kwajalein’s version of a homecoming and consists of several team-building activities aimed at promoting school spirit. Superintendent Al Robinson began the assembly by welcoming guests and introducing the judges of the competitions: Gloria Cassiday, Ray Drefus, Nick Langley and Monica Sadler. Students spent the rst half of the Turkey Bowl participating in a variety of acts and competitions. In the afternoon they headed over to Emon beach to relax, eat, and play some games. Juniors Addision Cossey, Leanora Kabua and David Sholar welcomed the senior class up to the stage for recognition by reciting senior salutes, which are short poems about each senior and their personalities. Next the students performed their class cheers. The cheese were creative expressions of each class’ unique identity and personality. Though the judges needed more time to tally points, some immediately commended the performances. “The cheers this year were all great,” Robinson said. Mereille Bishop and Angelo Lelet kicked off the performance part of the assembly by dancing along to High School Musical’s “Can I have this Dance.” Having impressed all students with their slow dancing skills, Bishop and Lelet were announced Mr. and Mrs. Kwaj High. The Freshmen later taught the crowd what they have been learning about biology this year. Dressed in green and brown, and covered in leaves, they sang and danced to a short song about photosynthesis. Next, the “Jammers,” a group including Dash Alfred, Angelo Lelet, Augustion Lelet, Jared Wase and Peyton Smith, took the stage. Each playing a different instrument, they performed the song “No matter where you are.” The assembly took short “commercial breaks,” a unique twist to this year’s Turkey Bowl. The rst commercial was set in a grocery store as David Sholar was trying to buy a few snacks. The cashier was Addison Cossey, whose arms were played by Lizzie Dorries. Every item Sholar wanted to purchase was tasted by Cossey before Doerries being placed it in a bag. The performance brought loads of laughter from the audience. A large group of girls then showed off their Hula skills by performing to the song “Haoloto” by Te Vaka. Then a smaller group of girls continued to dance alongside a few boys. The nale began with just Devante Floor and Agnelo Lelet, who started the Disney mash up. They sang the “Circle of Life”, but were joined by a few seventh graders who joined in with “A Whole New World”. The 8th grade class came in with “Strangers like Me”, and the freshmen sang “Under the Sea.” The sophomores added “Hakuna Matata”, while the juniors sang “I’ll make a man out of you. Finally, the seniors brought in “Let it Go”. The judges tallied up class scores, announcing that the seniors won both the poster and the cheer competition. Students were dismissed and told to meet at the beach at 12:45 p.m. At Emon Beach, students enjoyed a variety of activities. Many chose to participate in a volleyball, football or Daisy Wiltrout and friends challenge each other to beach volleyball.See TURKEY, page 7

6The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 49 Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014 Seabees wrap up Ebeye Island Community Center overhaul CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Some of the five dozen new marine-rated LED lights shine down from the rafters of the Island Community Center. 12 new concrete slabs, which help cover the interior of the facility, dry last week. New gutters are fitted with pipes that will feed rainwater into a total of eight large water catchments the community will use. Some of the Seabee crew work together to mix con crete used to form more concrete flooring for the interior.Article and photos by Jordan Vinson Associate EditorConstruction Civic Action Detail-Marshall Islands, the Navy Seabees detachment currently working on U.S. Army GarrisonKwajalein Atoll and surrounding RMI communities, wrapped up a major overhaul of the Island Community Center on Ebeye this week. One of the largest gathering places for people living along the EbeyeGugeegue Causeway, the Island Community Center was in need of a range of repairs that the Seabees took on with gusto. Each specializing in one of three major areas of work—equipment operations, utilities and vertical construction—the 20 Seabees spent two weeks pouring thousands of pounds of cement, installing and wiring more than 60 marine climate-proof LED and uorescent light xtures, and installing a new gutter and water catchment system to make use of rainwater that spills from the structure’s roof. Some elements of the project went swimmingly. Petty Of cer 3rd Class Warner Ward, a construction electrician in the detachment, made quick work of installing and wiring the 65 brand new ceiling-mounted light xtures that now illuminate the center’s interior. Just over three days after starting his job he was nished. The installation of a new plastic gutter system on the roof of the building and three new 3,000-gallon water cisterns that Ebeye residents will use for potable water also went smoothly. Other jobs were a bit more frustrating. Above the loud whirr of the team’s large—and sometimes undependable—truck-pulled cement mixer, some teammates who had climbed atop the machine to pour in bags of aggregate had no option but to get their hands—and much See SEABEES, page 7

After tearing open only a few bags of aggregate mixture, the dust-covered men began to look less like Seabees and more like dirt-baked bandidos in a “Mad Max” lm. Meanwhile, those on the ground dealt with concrete batches that sometimes came out too soupy and forced the men and women to hold up while they tried to troubleshoot the nicky machine. It was an annoying but inevitable part of the job, said Builder 2nd Class Wesley Pritchard. “Because yesterday we had trouble with the machine, we were only able to place six” of the 26 concrete pads required to cover the rest of the interior oor of the building, Pritchard said. Outside of a handful of short delays that the crewmembers were forced to x in the sweltering equatorial heat, the team worked with the machine to wrap up the concrete job as ef ciently as possible. Ushering load after load of heavy, wet concrete into a handful of wheelbarrows they used to cart the mixture inside, they used10-by-10-feet square forms made from long wooden boards to corral the mixture and hold it in place. Heaving more concrete into small piles, they slowly lled up the forms and spread the wet cement evenly to make a smooth surface. 25 cubic yards of concrete later, the team had nished a major expansion of the concrete oor space available inside the center. All the headaches the team experienced in giving the Island Community Center its facelift were worth it in the end, crewmembers said. “I think it’s awesome what we’re doing,” Ward, the electrician, said, gesturing toward a couple of children who had plopped down just outside the center’s chainlink fence to watch the team work. “Seeing the kids’ faces every day makes it worth it.” One of the largest gathering places for the community on this section of the atoll, the Island Community Center is often used for island-wide events, many of SEABEES, from page 6 which are geared to the many children that call Ebeye home. “We’ve interacted with the kids quite a bit,” Pritchard said. “Obviously because we not only have to keep them off our job site, but because they hang around to watch us work.” One of the children’s favorite things to do with the Seabees was to sing a classic children’s song from the States, strangely enough. “They really like singing ‘Old McDonald Had a Farm,’” Pritchard laughed. “They will sing it all the time, but all they really know is the ‘e-i-e-i-o’ part, which they belt out.” The Island Community Center overhaul was only part of a series of construction projects the Gulfport, Mississippi-based crew is tackling during its threemonth stay on the atoll. Next on the CCAD-Marshall Islands’ agenda is a group of builds slated for Third Island, which the team will begin after completing its transition from Kwajalein to Roi-Namur this week. baggo games. Others decided to relax on the beach or hop in the water. There were also a few contests in which to compete, the rst being a short scavenger hunt. Every class recruited four members to navigate their way around Emon Beach picking up clues that would help them gure out the hidden words to win the race. Juniors were the fastest to nd all the clues and realize the phrase was “Happy Thanksgiving”. The nal contest of the day was a tug-of-war tournament that came down to the seniors and juniors, but the juniors pulled their way to the top. The day ended with a clean up session. Event organizers announced to the students that the winner of the 2013 Turkey Bowl will be announced during the following school week.TURKEY, from page 5 Teachers Alex Coleman and Jim Bowers help students ready the water balloon slingshot.
