Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2 Letters to the Editor Dan and Nacy Hillman The 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. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to USAKA. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA. It is published Wednesdays and Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff, P.O. Box 23, APO AP 96555.

Kathy Bates, Community Activities “It makes me grumpy because it wakes me up at 9 p.m.” Leigh Hoskins, “I haven’t ever been outside while they’ve played.” Matt Crane, high school senior “I don’t hear them.” Will O’Connell, high school junior “I respect the colonel’s idea and enthusiasm, though her new... ‘calls’ do nothing for me.”Dear Community, On behalf of all the staff at the elementary school, I would like to say Kommol Tata to the community members who supported our students’ recent efforts to raise money for tsunami victims. With this overwhelming support, we were able to send $12,491.07 to the American Red Cross International Response Fund. We feel this was an important event for the children to undertake as it reinforced the knowledge that there are people that need our help, and that all of us have a powerful voice when we work together. It was refreshing to see the enthusiasm in which the students donated their time to “litter patrol” here on Kwaj and also in collecting their pledges. This experience went a long way to introducing our students to the bene ts of their active participation in the global community. Sincerely, Sonya F. Sava “Wave of Relief” Coordinator Former Kwajalein resident Dan Hillman married Nancy Moll on Jan. 1 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The couple got engaged Christmas Eve (2003) on Emon Beach. Many out of towners attended the wedding including Dan’s relatives from Rome and also some very good friends from Kwajalein. Dan’s sister, Sandy Hillman (1998 Kwajalein High School graduate and currently a teacher on Kwajalein) was maid of honor, and Dan’s brother, Jamie Hillman (born on Kwajalein in 1986 and 2004 Kwajalein High School graduate), was best man. Ushers were Dan’s youngest brother, Michael Hillman (born on Kwajalein in 1990 and currently in eighth grade on Kwajalein) and Nancy’s brother, Ryan Moll. The couple took a short honeymoon and is now living in Newport News, Virginia where Dan is teaching high school mathematics and physics and Nancy is attending William and Mary College working on her doctorate in history.

Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 Licensed vendors sell items including food, art, crafts, T-shirts and more at events such as the Spring MusicFest, Fourth of July celebration and other community activities. (File photo)Shop ‘till you dropSimple rules can get residents vendors licenses By Nell M. Drumheller EditorAt rst glance, shopping on Kwajalein may appear to be limited to the downtown area with the Macys’ stores, Ten-ten and on the fringes, the Mic Shop and Bargain Bazaar. In reality, there’s a lot more for sale than what’s displayed on the shelves of these stores. More than 60 people have licenses to conduct commercial activities in this community, according to Simone Smead, Community Activities manager. The vendors offer sales and services in a wide-range of areas – everything from pottery to scuba lessons, to day spas and dance lessons. In a community of less than 2,300, that is quite a variety for the person with coins in their pocket ready to spend. Before you can become a legal vendor of goods or services in the U.S. Army Kwajalein and Reagan Test Site community, you must meet minimum criteria and of course, ll out some forms. There’s also a $25 licensing fee. Vendors may only sell or provide services for the speci c items approved on the license, and only for the duration of the license period. The licenses are nontransferable, even if the business is sold, transferred or given to another individual. The new vendor must apply for a license. Vendors whose services include activities that may be dangerous, such as swimming or scuba lessons, are required to have proof of liability insurance and must comply with any applicable and active Republic of the Marshall Islands dive guidelines. Vendors who sell shell craft items may not use endangered species of marine life, and vendors who wish to sell locally caught sh may only sell commonly accepted ocean-going sh such as wahoo, ono, kava kava, rainbow runner, mahi mahi, tuna and marlin and will exclude reef-feeders such as perch, surgeon sh, lally sh, trigger sh, squirrel sh, wrasse, snapper, red snapper, parrot sh and barracuda. Food vendors must attend a brie ng with the Kwajalein Range Services Food Safety of ce to learn proper food handling and sanitation methods. Vendors are forbidden from using government media to promote goods or services, which means that vendors cannot advertise on the roller, in the Hourglass via government computer or by posting yers at the post of ce. However, vendors may post yers and advertisements on bulletin boards at the Tape Escape, Small Boat Marina, Community Recreation Center, Library, Gimbel’s, Caf Roi, Outrigger Bar, Ivey Gym and Roi terminal. When a vendor completes the paperwork for a license to conduct commercial activities in USAKA, they are advised in writing as to what they can and can’t do. One point of confusion with some vendors is shipping of goods for resale. It is prohibited to use the Army Post Of ce for shipping of goods for resale. “If you are going to sell the product, you can’t use the post of ce to send or receive your goods,” Karla Long, postmistress said. She added that while she cannot open your packages to see what is in them, some contents are obvious by the shipping label and packaging and so when she sees boxes that appear to be in violation of the regulations, she noti es the receiver. “I give them a warning that what they are doing is against government regulations,” she said. She is within the jurisdiction of her of ce to return the packages unreceived if they are blatantly in violation of the regulations. Legally, the only way for vendors to ship and receive product for resale is through Republic of Marshall Islands’ mail or by commercial air service. Not all services require a license to conduct commercial activities. If you are a child-care provider, are holding a quarters-based patio or permanent change of station sale or are holding a fund-raiser for an approved private organization or club, you do not need this speci c license. For more information on becoming a vendor, or to see a current list of active vendors, stop by the Community Activities Of ce in Bldg. 805 or call 53331.


Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Kwajalein residents make a difference by working on EbeyeBy Mig Owens Assistant EditorFor a handful of Kwajalein residents, their workplace isn’t worlds away – it only seems as if it is. Those who choose to apply their skills on Ebeye reap untold rewards. Leigh Willhelm, who holds a doctorate in counseling and is an experienced mental health counselor, boards a water taxi three days a week to serve as a social work consultant to the Ministry of Health. Other days, she works from home. “I’ve been on Kwaj for almost two years and this is my rst job since we’ve been here,” she said. “I had done some volunteer reading at Ebeye Public School and heard they were looking for a social worker.” According to Maj. David Coffey, Host Nation chief, such word-of-mouth advertising is typical of job openings on Ebeye, though some are posted in the Hourglass He explained that no special permission or paperwork is required through his of ce for Kwajalein residents to work on Ebeye. “Their wage level is such that most professionals will not go work there, but for someone trying to give back to the community, there are a lot of volunteer and low-wage jobs,” Coffey said. Maryanne Lane, Host Nation of cer, added “while teachers and medical personnel certainly don’t make what they make here, they make considerably more than a Marshallese hired on Ebeye.” The position that Willhelm has lled for the past three months allows for a degree of exibility and ts perfectly into her schedule, she explained, allowing her to be home when her children get out of school. “I truly enjoy my job on Ebeye. My coworkers have been amazingly gracious to me,” she said. “I feel blessed with the opportunity to do something meaningful with my time plus I have the bene t of getting a unique work experience.” Marta Geeslin has been a Kwajalein resident for four years and is a substitute at Ebeye Public Elementary School, where she teaches grammar, phonics, reading and spelling to eighth graders. “I’ve always enjoyed teaching and babies,” Geeslin, who is also a pediatric nurse, said. Amidst overcrowding and a backdrop of too-few books, cockroaches and lack of air-conditioning and running water in the classroom she added, “I nd it rewarding, especially when you see your students succeed.”Marta Geeslin teaches English to one of her four eighth-grade classes at Ebeye Public Elementary School.(Photos by Mig Owens)


Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 Her experience as a Montessori teacher has enabled Geeslin to work with special education/needs students who are mixed in with her regular classes. Her biggest challenge, though, is behavior, which she said is true of eighth graders everywhere. She recounted an instance where some of her students surprised her in scoring 100 percent on a quiz. Geeslin said she thought to herself, “wait a minute…it looks like I’m doing something good here.” Knowledge of the culture is something Geeslin obtained through adoption of her Marshallese son, Carlos, and it has given her insight in her current position. “These are wonderful people and very intelligent,” Geeslin said. “With good training, they can do anything.” Of her own experience, Willhelm said she has gained “a greater appreciation for the fact that Kwaj is their land, we’re just visitors here.” She added that the military’s presence has changed many things for the Marshallese people, both good and bad. “I think we have a responsibility to treat the Marshallese people with dignity and to respect their culture,” Willhelm said. “As a ‘ribelle’ on Ebeye, I am mindful that I am the foreigner here, not them.” A.J. Gilbert is in the process of transitioning from a teacher at Ebeye Public Elementary School to a volunteer position, after accepting a job with the Kwajalein Police Department. In his opinion, the greatest educational concern for the people on Ebeye is English pro ciency. Though working on Ebeye requires a long commute, Gilbert, also an eighth-grade English teacher, shared that he enjoys it because “the people and culture embrace life in ways others forget.” Of the greatest impact to Gilbert, he said, is “seeing the socioeconomic problems and wanting to do more.” Through her work at Ebeye Hospital, Willhelm has gained insight into health concerns of the people living there, citing diabetes and communicable diseases as the greatest health issues. “The youth population has the typical problems of alcohol abuse and high teenage pregnancy rates. The age group of 20 and under accounts for over half of the population on Ebeye,” Willhelm said. Willhelm, Geeslin and Gilbert exemplify the difference one person can make. But, more help is needed and welcome, according to Host Nation of cials. “They are always looking for volunteer teachers and medical personnel,” Coffey said. Lane added that more recently, hospitals and schools prefer hiring people as they can set up rm schedules versus volunteers who don’t always show up. “There is strong need for recreational activities and expanded educational opportunities,” Willhelm explained. “Presently there is a group of women from Kwaj who volunteer at one of the private schools on Ebeye. If someone was interested in helping, they could get involved by reading at the schools or sponsoring a sports team from Ebeye.” According to Lane, the Ebeye Public School and High School are in dire need, though all schools are always looking for steady teachers. Though the pay is lower than equivalent jobs on Kwajalein, Coffey said he thinks people choose to work there out of “a desire to give back and a belief that money isn’t all that is important.”Leigh Willhelm interacts with kindergartners as she sets up a room for play therapy at Ebeye Public Elementary School.

Unaffected and undaunted, they continued in the air for the last four hours of the nine-hour trip. A subsequent inspection uncovered a series of eight “exit wounds” or burn marks on the body of the plane, as well as chips in the left propeller, ap and tail wing, according to Leonard Lollar, AirScan Paci c program manager. The airplane, estimated to be worth $600,000, sustained damage determined by AirScan of cials to be caused by a lightning strike. Though physically able to y, Federal Aviation Administration regulations require the airplane’s propeller and engine be replaced, said Bill Givens, AirScan director of maintenance. Rework of the sheet metal will also be necessary, as well as maintenance to radar equipment. Under normal circumstances, a Metroliner plane would require engine replacement after 3,000 hours of operation, according to Givens. “Eighteen hours is all this one has,” he said. “It’s unfortunate, but it’s part of being in aviation,” Givens said, adding that he has seen instances of lightning striking planes about once every two years, though none with any type of catastrophic results. “The way we y here, with so many cycles, it wears airplanes out,” Lollar said. “It’s tough to keep two going in this environment. We were looking forward to a third plane, especially the air conditioning. Now, it may be many weeks before this one ies. AirScan has insurance for this type of thing. They’re involved and will work on it.” Lollar said that AirScan is sending a fourth plane here in the interim, which will allow Plane 680 to be sent to Honolulu for refurbishment, repainting, air conditioning and anti-corrosion treatment, as scheduled. Though not yet permitted to hit the skies, Lollar said the new Metroliner’s arrival has proven bene cial in an unexpected way. “We began borrowing parts from it right away,” Lollar said, explaining that parts from the new arrival have enabled them to repair discrepancies in the other two planes. Following repair, the Metroliner 697 is expected to join Planes 680 and 691, used primarily for commutes between Kwajalein and Roi-Namur.Peter Villarreal, avionics supervisor, inspects the damaged dish of the island’s new Metroliner. The airplane sustained damage on delivery when it was struck by lightning.
