At 4 a.m. on Nov. 29 a fully-grown coconut tree fell on Laura Castellano’s tent by the beach in Namu. Luckily, she was sleeping on her right side and her spine and chest area were not exposed. Nevertheless, her list of injuries was long and she was in critical condition. She suffered a bilateral fracture to her right thigh, a fracture to her left arm just below the elbow, a number of fractures to her right cheek bone, a ruptured bladder and numerous fractures to her pelvis. At about 7 a.m., we finally contacted Majuro via radio and managed to start making preparations for Laura to be medevaced to Kwajalein. At noon, an Air Marshall Islands plane arrived with a doctor to transport us to Kwajalein. It had been a very long eighthour wait. Kwajalein hospital determined that the extent of Laura’s injuries was such that they would not operate on her there as she required facilities that were not available to them. The Kwajalein hospital staff stabilized her by giving her two units of blood, putting her leg in traction, installing a catheter, applying an external pelvic brace and giving her oxygen and intravenous fluids, antibiotics and painkillers. She was monitored very closely and received excellent care. After two and a half days of intense preparation, we left Kwajalein on Continental’s Wednesday evening flight accompanied by a Kwajalein doctor and nurse. I spent many hours with this amazing young woman during her traumatic experience and am in awe of her courage and strength. Several medical personnel at Queen’s told me that many women have complained that a leg fracture such as Laura’s is more painful than childbirth. Laura lived with that pain, in addition to her other injuries, for six days waiting for an operation! At the time of writing, Laura is home in Italy with her family. She took her first steps without crutches two weeks ago and has had the caval filter removed from her vena cava. She still has an enormous amount of work to do to get back to her former athletic self but she has a rigorous exercise program and I have no doubt that she will succeed. In fear of forgetting someone, I do not want to list individually all the people involved and whose kindness and resourcefulness made it possible to achieve what we did. Suffice to say, we To people who park their bikes in the clearly marked noparking zone at the post of ce.asked a number of difficult questions and never once received the answer “no.” I do want everyone on Kwajalein to know that Laura and her family and friends all recognize and appreciate what you did for her very much. Kommol tata, Liz Rodick On Dec. 26, as Kwaj continued holidaying unaware, the most devastating natural disaster in a century was wreaking havoc five time zones away. In mere moments, island and lowland populations were scoured off their tranquil beaches by the tsunami resulting from an earthquake off the coast of Sumatra. By the time we went home to our televisions that evening, reports of fatalities were already surpassing 5,000. Never before has a disaster of such magnitude been so well documented. Many of us on this tiny island of minimal elevation, surrounded by the vast Pacific, received frantic calls and e-mails from the geographically unaware, asking if we had been affected or worse…obliterated. Luckily, our topography makes it unlikely for Kwaj to be vulnerable to tsunamis. Many of us have made individual donations to relief services immediately on-the-ground providing water, shelter, food and medical care. However, large checks require less overhead and make money go a lot further than many small ones. The region will continue to need new infrastructures, homes, schools, child care, medical facilities, agricultural restoration, cooking supplies, house wares and clothing. My gratitude goes to the George Seitz Elementary school students who raised $12,491.07 for the Red Cross International Relief Fund. Today is the close-out for children attending the Protestant Christian Education Department Sunday School to donate funds to World Vision. For more information on that see their Web site at www.worldvision.org. The National Honor Society Variety Show 2005 will be Feb. 26. All proceeds will go to C.A.R.E. Watch for ticket sales on Macy’s porch. For more information on C.A.R.E. see their Web site at www.careusa.org. It is a privilege to be a part of such a generous and compassionate community.

Saturday, Feb. 12, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass By Deanna Frazier Reporter 3 After that, the couple dated and was engaged on her birthday in September 1967, and married a month later. Some 38 years later, the couple has two sons, a daughter and eight grandchildren. The moral of this story, Anita said, “The MP wasn’t so dumb after all. She who irts catches the MP, is blessed, and eats out of his hand the rest of her life and loves every minute of it.” Harry, a field telemetry engineer for KRS, and Anita are on their second tour of Kwajalein for a total of 10 years on the atoll. “We are living on a secluded island paradise where the sunsets are the most beautiful...and are truly blessed.” Pete and Jo Bolen became soul mates in 1989, according to Jo, after each suffered difficult divorces. The two worked together at the same laboratory, and really had not gotten along that well until “our mutual misery,” she explained. The two commiserated over their experiences. A strong friendship emerged, and an even greater love bonded each to the other. That Christmas, Jo and Pete each had young boys to whom they desperately wanted to give a joyful Christmas, even though the finances for such gifts was nonexistent. “Neither of us knew how we could pull Christmas off for our kids under the circumstances,” Jo explained. “One day Pete suggested we both go together to a nearby large city to Toys R Us. We spent a Saturday together, just See Love Page 6 Whether on the screen or in real life, love stories capture the hearts and imaginations of romantics everywhere. The boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy finds girl again stories give audiences that warm, fuzzy feeling that “all is right with the world,”…at least for that moment in time. The great romantic comedies and dramas on the silver screen are infamous in American pop culture: “Roman Holiday,” “Casablanca,” “Annie Hall,” and “Princess Bride” to name a few. But they are after all, still fiction. Real love stories, the ones retold over coffee with the girls or over poker with the guys are the ones that really make the tears well up and the heart sigh. There are a few such stories right here on Kwajalein. Anita Raymond met her husband Harry in 1967 at the gate to an Army post where he was the gate guard, and she was a flirtatious young teen trying to “sweet talk” her way on post to “cruise around.” After batting her eyes for 30 minutes or so in an effort to gain entry, she did turn around after the young MP “threatened to flatten my tires with his pistol, if I didn’t,” recalled Anita, assistant manager for Ten-Ten. “I didn’t see him again until July 4, 1967, on a hayride,” Anita said. “We sat next to each other, but we were both with someone else. We talked to each other through the hayride. I knew who he was but didn’t think he knew me,” she said. “He remembered.”

Saturday, Feb. 12, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass (Photos by Mig Owens) By Mig Owens Assistant EditorA sea of colors ooded Ebeye’s streets Wednesday as children wearing uniforms indicative of their school af liation joined in a parade commemorating Kwajalein Atoll Memorial Day. To the beat of the Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School marching band, dignitaries from the Republic of the Marshall Islands national government, United States Army Kwajalein Atoll, including COL Beverly Stipe, USAKA commander, and the Republic of China led the parade past Triple J onto the grounds adjacent the boat dock. The honored guests then retreated under a tent set atop a concrete stage overlooking the action to watch as ornate oats displayed creativity of design and payload; some featuring skits, song and dance. Floats represented all of the island’s schools, including Queen of Peace, Calvary/Assembly of God, Seventh-Day Adventist, Jabro Private, Ebeye Christian, and Ebeye Public and the new Ebeye Public High School. Also participating with oats were Ebeye Health Services, RMI National Police, Workforce Investment Act and Headstart. Master of ceremonies for the celebration was Marok Lalimo, a grandfathered RMI worker of 39 years who works in the Work Control department and goes by the name “Speedy,” according to Mary-

Both the marching band and the Good News Choir from Ebeye United Church of Christ provided the music for the ag-raising ceremony. An invocation was given by Assistant Pastor Danny Jitiam on behalf of Ebeye United Church of Christ. Opening remarks were provided by Michael Kabua, a Kwajalein Atoll iroij and senator from Kwajalein Atoll. Speakers then took to the microphone as a light breeze kicked up dust on the parade grounds. Students found shade from the sun under a series of tents opposite the stage. Deputy Chief Secretary’s Representative on Ebeye, Ataji Balos, spoke on behalf of RMI President, Kessai Note, and Deputy Chief of Mission, Tom Praster, spoke on behalf of U.S. Ambassador to the RMI, Greta Morris. Iroij Christopher Loeak spoke on behalf of his brother, Iroijlaplap Anjua Loeak. According to Lane, there were approximately seven senators as well as several mayors from other atolls also in attendance. Assembly of God Pastor Rev. Kauru Kaious concluded with the benediction. Float judges gave the day’s highest score to the Queen of Peace Elementary School oat, which depicted Marshallese representatives meeting with those from the U.S. Congress. “After attending many Liberation Day (now called Memorial Day) celebrations on Ebeye, this was a rst,” Lane said. “Seeing the children on the Queen of Peace Elementary School oat dressed up in suits, making speeches and guarded by pretend Secret Service agents was the highlight of the day.”Opposite page: Queen of Peace students participate in the parade holding a sign that read, "Hold each other's hands and love each other."

Saturday, Feb. 12, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, beautifully wrapped long-stem roses, a romantic candle-lit dinner, and poetic verse printed on special cards oftentimes symbolize one’s love and affection to another on Valentine’s Day, February 14. The day was originally remembered for the Martyred Saint Valentine. He was beheaded for secretly marrying couples in the 14th Century despite the Roman emperor’s decree forbidding new marriages. The day grew into one of the biggest and most widely practiced holidays in the world. And Kwajalein romantics are no different. In preparation for Valentine gift-giving, Macy’s West imported more than 2,500 long-stemmed roses, 100 dozen wrapped as bouquets, 80 dozen foil-boxed bouquets, and another 300 single-stem roses. Additionally, another 100 or so tropical bouquets, arrangements, and potted plants also arrived as Valentine shopping options, according to store Manager David Fearon. The shipment arrived early Thursday afternoon, just in time for the advertised 4:30 p.m. sale time, when more than a dozen men, owers in hand, stood in any of the four lines awaiting a cashier. “Three hundred fty purchases were made Thursday,” Fearon explained. “This is an incredible volume for us,” he added, explaining a normal day tabs about 100 purchases, making Thursday’s sales up nearly four-fold. California produces 60 percent of American roses, but the vast number sold on Valentine’s Day in the United States are imported, mostly from South America. Approximately 110 million roses, the majority red, will be sold and delivered within a three-day time period. Statistically, 73 percent of people who buy owers for Valentine’s Day are men, while only 27 percent are women. And 15 percent of women send themselves owers, according to the National Florist Association. At Macy’s, sales are up in the jewelry and gift departments, according to Jill Schoeneck, store manager. Knowing Valentine’s Day is a big gift-giving holiday, Macy’s advertised a 20 percent-off sale for jewelry, gift items, glassware and more, hoping to offer customers great prices and selection for their sweethearts. To many, Valentine’s Day means chocolate and lots of it. Thanks to Richard Cadbury who invented the rst Valentine’s Day candy box in the late 1800’s. According to U.S. candy manufacturers, Americans spend more than $1.2 million each Valentine’s Day on candy. Perhaps the single most given gift for Valentine’s day is that of chocolate, however. The Chocolate Manufacturer’s Association of America, reports 36 million boxes of chocolate are sold for Valentine’s Day. Kwajalein’s convenience store, Ten-Ten, not only stocked up on gift chocolate, but also on Valentine cards, which are popular gifts in and of themselves. Historians claim that the rst valentine was a poem sent in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife. He was imprisoned in the Tower of London at the time. In the United States, Esther Howland is given credit for sending the rst Valentine’s Day cards in the late 1840’s. Second only to Christmas, Valentine’s Day brings out the card-giver in people, with an average of 1.1 billion cards purchased every year. Hallmark has over 1300 different cards speci cally for Valentine’s Day. Seventy ve percent of all Americans exchange Valentine’s Day cards. In order of popularity, Valentine’s Day cards are given to teachers, children, mothers, wives, and sweethearts. Today Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the United States, Mexico, Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Australia. the two of us, shopping for BB guns and other surprises. But the biggest surprise was a relationship that blossomed. “We have been together from that point on,” she said. The two joke how they were married by an off-season photographer, two years later, who also took their wedding photo, “one of those Old West photos,” Jo mused. The two have been married 13 years having raised two wonderful boys.Penni Pierson, a software engineer with KRS, and husband Tim, an Inventory Control specialist with KRS, had one of those onagain, off-again, on-again relationships that was more on-again when each was visiting home for the summers. Penni said she met Tim in high school when he was dating her best friend. From there, she went on to college and he to the Navy. “When we were home for the summer, we’d get together, then we wouldn’t see each other maybe ‘til the next year,” she said. Tim, however, was persistent, Love, from Page 3 Valentine options varied on KwajaleinPenni said. After college, she took a job in her home town of Greensboro, North Carolina. “Tim kept calling, but I wouldn’t call him back,” she said of her reluctance to continue in a seemingly summer romance. “One day I did call back, and we started going out again. This time it stuck for some reason.” Though they knew each other for more than ten years, they kept coming back to each other, Penni explained. And they have never doubted they were meant to be together.

Drumheller EditorThe Community Bank, a subsidiary of Bank of America, will open Tuesday on Kwajalein. The Kwajalein Atoll banking center will be open for business in the former Bank of Guam location. The hours of operation will be 9 a.m. – 3 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturdays and paydays. Three ATMs will be installed for customer convenience; one will be located at the banking center, a second at the Kwajalein Lodge and the third ATM will be installed in the Ten-Ten Store. “With the initial opening of Community Bank, there will not be a satellite operation on Roi-Namur,” Gerry Wolf, chief, Community Activities, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll said. Wolf is also the USAKA Bank liaison of cer. “The command has requested this service, and Defense Finance and Accounting Service will visit Roi-Namur in late February to assess the facility and needs prior to establishing the service there. We look forward to the same positive improvements on Roi-Namur as we will experience with the Community Bank here on Kwajalein,” he added. The banking services provided on Roi by Community Bank will not be determined until after the site visit by DFAS. Currently there are check-cashing services offered by KRS at the retail facilities. “Community Bank reacted on very short notice to our request for a Military Banking Facility based on the withdrawal of the Bank of Guam. The establishment of the main branch, which will also provide online banking services to users at all locations, took priority. Once the main branch is established, we can begin determining requirements for the Roi operation,” Wolf said. The Republic of Marshall Islands workers will not be authorized to cash checks at the Community Bank. “Community Bank will not offer check cashing services to RMI employees on Kwajalein. KRS has been providing payroll check cashing services in the interim since Bank of Guam closed on Dec.1. KRS is currently looking at methods to continue a check cashing service or other methods of payment to ensure nancial services are provided to the RMI workforce that satisfy their requirements,” he said. Community Bank has nearly 100 full-service banking centers and over 300 ATMs in Germany, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Iceland, Japan and Okinawa, Korea, Diego Garcia, Guantanamo Bay and Honduras.
