Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2004 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2The Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb 4, 1944.

In addition to the yearly support of the Micronesian Handicraft Shop and Bargain Bazaar, the YYWC events covered through the holiday season began with the First Annual Basket Auction then on to the Ebeye Christmas Exchange Dinner, the Annual Holiday Tour of Homes and the Outer Island Christmas Drop. From material and monetary gifts to the loving volunteer hands, we say a huge thanks to all who helped or participated in these benevolent endeavors. December on Kwaj is an exhaustingly busy time for all, and to those who carved time from their hectic season, we say kommol tata. The YYWC also participated in the Tree Lighting Ceremony, the Downtown Wine and Cheese event, Christmas in the Park and the American Legion Christmas Eve Dinner. It is truly amazing to see the results when “ rst we give!” The continued support of the Kwaj and Ebeye residents make our community a truly special place to live, work, volunteer and grow. Wishing all a wonderful 2005! The Members of the YYWC I don’t know about you, but music transports me through time. I can hear Paul Simon’s “50 ways to leave your lover” and I’m back in New Hampshire. That song seemed to come on the radio every day as I drove home from work at Pease Air Force Base. Or, if I happen to hear Marty Robbins telling the sad tale of Felina and the cowboy who loved her so in “El Paso,” in an instant I’m back home on the ranch in Idaho, listening to one of my mom’s favorite LPs. Music has that effect on me; guess I’m a bit sentimental. So when COL Beverly Stipe initiates the bugle calls on Jan. 19, I know I’ll be touched by them. Not everyone likes to have their days start and end to the sound of a bugle call. On Air Force Bases, retreat is played at the end of the duty day. If you happen to be out of doors when it begins, you should face the direction of the ag and salute, or if out of uniform, put your hand over your heart. It’s sad but true that many people wait inside of their buildings until after retreat has played as if it is too inconvenient to render honors to our ag and nation. Once again, I guess I’m sentimental because I used to always head for the nearest exit, make sure I was in the clear and stand straight and tall with my salute strong and steady when retreat played. I look forward to doing that here too. COL Stipe is planning on having reveille at 6:30 a.m. with the ag raising, call to mess at noon, to the colors and retreat at 5 p.m. with the ag lowering, lights out at 9 p.m. and Taps at 10 p.m. Don’t get me started on the emotions hearing Taps will surface. You don’t want to see a grown editor cry.


Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2004 The Kwajalein Hourglassalcohol in the gel kills germs that cause colds and the u. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches their eyes, nose or mouth. Germs can live for a long time (some can live for two hours or more) on surfaces like doorknobs, desks and tables. When you are sick or have u symptoms, stay home, get plenty of rest and check with a health care provider as needed. Your employer may need a doctor’s note for an excused absence. Remember: Keeping your distance from others may protect them from getting sick. Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of uids, and eat nutritious food. Practicing healthy habits will help you stay healthy during u season and all year long. More facts, gures and how-to ideasCDC and its partner agencies and organizations offer a great deal of information about handwashing and other things you can do to stay healthy and avoid the germs that cause flu, the common cold and other illnesses. See Other Resources ( germstopper/resources.htm) and Posters( germstopper/ materials.htm) on this Stop the Spread of Germs site for a select listing of Web sites, materials, and contact information. Common symptoms of the u include: fever (unusually high) headache extreme tiredness cough sore throat runny or stuffy nose muscle aches nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea (much more common among children than adults). Simple steps prevent colds, flu Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Press ReleaseHow germs spread Illnesses like the u (in uenza) and colds are caused by viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. The u and colds usually spread from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes. How to help stop the spread of germs Take care to: • Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. • Clean your hands often. • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. • Stay home when you are sick and check with a health care provider when needed. • Practice other good health habits. Cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough. Cough or sneeze into a tissue and then throw it away. Cover your cough or sneeze if you do not have a tissue. Then, clean your hands and do so every time you cough or sneeze. Clean your hands often. When available, wash your hands -with soap and warm water -then rub your hands vigorously together and scrub all surfaces. Wash for 15 to 20 seconds. It is the soap combined with the scrubbing action that helps dislodge and remove germs. When soap and water are not available, alcohol-based disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers may be used. You can nd them in most supermarkets and drugstores. If using a gel, rub the gel in your hands until they are dry. The gel doesn’t need water to work; the Handwashing is one of the most important steps in preventing the spread of cold and u germs.3


Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2004 Giving spirit extends beyond holidays By Mig Owens Assistant EditorFor the 50 people who call Carlson their home, Monday was an extraordinary day. Despite rainy, windy conditions, two boats loaded with food, clothes and toys descended upon their shores for the Christian Women’s Fellowship Christmas Drop. Carlson residents waded into the lagoon to help CWF volunteers unload the goods, most sealed in plastic containers, from the anchored boats. Children gathered to offer wide smiles and greetings. “We were told we’d have help when we got there,” Ron Clark, private boat captain, said. “It was encouraging and comforting to see. Residents here understand the reef and water and helped at the docking period. It was good to have them there.” Clark said the disappointing weather was more than compensated for by the joy of bringing goods and sharing with Marshallese friends. This year’s drop included nine 29-gallon containers full of household goods, one for each

DeJoie expressed that the drop left her feeling wonderful and that it was well worth the trip; the only regret was that not all 21 people who planned to attend were able. “The weather did not live up to expectations,” she said. “But being here with the people exceeded any expectations I had. It was wonderful to be with them and their warmth and generosity was evident.” Before the boats departed, Kemen offered handicrafts as a way of saying “thank you for joining us.” Kemen told the visitors, “You are welcome here anytime, please come again. There is no permission needed. I have just extended an open invitation to you. Come anytime.” (Page design by Dan Adler) family, 18 20-pound bags of rice as well as clothing, toys, bedding, school supplies and sporting goods. When asked her reaction to the gifts given the island by CWF, resident Kintha Michael said it was “very kind” explaining that they now would “enjoy clothes and shoes for shing.” Though Carlson residents were on the receiving end of the drop, they reciprocated by honoring the eleven guests with leis, wuts and song. A specially prepared meal was served, consisting of chicken, fish, rice, starch, biro (Marshallese cheese), pandanus (fruit), coconut juice, and a warm mixture of pumpkin and iu (a fruit pronounced “you”). “Even though Christmas is past us, there is still the Christmas spirit,” Jorju Kemen, Carlson Island leader, said. “We are pleased to welcome you here.” Kemen retired to Carlson after working on Kwajalein for 36 years in the warehouse merchandising area. Today, his son, Yoshi, is a member of the Kwajalein Police Department. “This keeps our friendship and relationship and enhances that,” Noda Lojkar, USAKA ombudsman, said. “When they see people take time from their schedule it really encourages them – to come in contact directly.” Lojkar said the island residents were happy and they were ready for the drop, adding that they “killed the chicken this morning and prepared pwiro, which is made from bread fruit.” Jane DeJoie, chairperson of the missions committee for CWF, which organized the drop, said it was unfor-

Community bank to open doors in FebruaryBy Mig Owens Assistant EditorBank of America’s Community Bank is slated to begin operations in mid-February with a ribbon cutting/grand opening scheduled for Feb. 25. The bulk of the remaining materials needed to refurbish the bank, located at the former Bank of Guam facility, are expected to arrive on Saturday, according to Jim Bishop, Subcontracts administrator. Those materials include teller counters, safe room doors and several smaller items. “Eli Arnold, Project Materials manager, and Jimmy Matsunaga, Shipping and Receiving manager, both are on top of getting both KRS-responsible and Bank of Americaresponsible materials to the island and are doing a great job under short-fused turnarounds,” Bishop said. Until the arrival of the new bank, Kwajalein Range Services will continue to offer check-cashing services through the Feb. 5 payday, according to Mark Paier, Finance manager. “We will shortly, in the next two to three weeks, see Community Bank personnel arriving on island to set up and test their systems as well as to hire and train new employees,” Bishop said. Among those tests is circuit testing between Huntsville, Ala., San Antonio, Texas (Bank of America’s military operations headquarters) and Kwajalein. According to Bishop, a preconstruction meeting was held Saturday by project coordinator, Doug Vander Veen, and the renovation/facility upgrade is scheduled to be underway this week. Every attempt will be made to minimize disruption during construction, Bishop said, and he asked that residents please be patient during that time period. “Access during construction will be limited to construction personnel unless accompanied by project leads or the project coordinator and will require the proper personnel protection equipment, like work boots, safety glasses and hard hats,” he said.By Mig Owens Assistant EditorUntil recently, those desiring technical certi cations had to take certi cation tests on annual leave. The search by Information Technology employees Devin Noel and Robert Ramsey for a localized solution led to the opening of a Pearson Virtual University Enterprises Mobile Testing Center on Dec. 18. VUE is a nationally recognized testing center for technical certi cations, according to Mark Owens, deputy site manager and chief information of cer, offering such certi cations as Microsoft Certi ed Systems Engineer, Microsoft Certi ed Systems Administrator and CISCO certi ed network professional. “Training and certi cations are one way an IT employee can improve their knowledge and back it up with credentials,” Owens said. “Having the ability to take certi cation tests on island should help KRS retain employees who want to further their careers.” Tests at the center began Saturday and are open to employees across the island, as well as RMI employees and anyone with access to Kwajalein. “The Kwajalein testing center is open every Saturday,” Kristen Pal, IT executive assistant and VUE certi ed administrator said. “The ability to take certi cation tests locally has helped improve moral within IT.” “Jamie Dover, KRS IT Trainer, did an outstanding job obtaining and setting up the hardware and software for the Kwajalein Mobile VUE testing Center,” Owens said. “His dedicated efforts underline the desire of IT employees to get the VUE site up and running here on Kwaj.” Randy Razook, associate staff member for MIT/Lincoln Lab, said the testing center is something that has been needed on island for some time. “I was very excited about this before it opened. I knew the effect it would have on the future of technical certi cations for everyone on island,” Razook said. “I plan on using the center once or twice per year.” Rates for tests are set by the sponsoring company, such as Microsoft or CISCO, and KRS serves as the administrator. Certi cation candidates may schedule tests via the VUE web site at or by contacting Pal at 50973. All tests are conducted in the IT conference room, Building 806. Candidates should arrive 15 minutes before each test.Testing center for certifications opensSun Moon Tides Sun rise/set Moon rise/set High Tide Low Tide Thursday 0708/1848 0933/2138 0610, 4.8' 0010, 0.3' Jan. 13 1820, 5.9' 1200, 0.7' Friday 0708/1848 1021/2233 0650, 4.8' 0050, 0.5' Jan. 14 1900, 5.5' 1250, 0.9' Saturday 0708/1849 1105/2324 0740, 4.6' 0130, 0.8' Jan. 15 1950, 5.0' 1330, 1.3'
