As the islandÂ’s resident Marine Science teacher, I have had experience with Manatee rescues in Florida, and Sea Turtle Rescues throughout the Caribbean. However, Spinner Dolphins were new to me. Given the deteriorating condition of the dolphin, she was carefully lifted in a towel off the rocks and into the bed of a truck. After a quick consultation with Ken Sims (U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Environmental of ce), the only controlled body of water that met basic volume, depth and sanitary requirements was the adult pool. After placing the dolphin into the pool, Ken contacted experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and I sat with the dolphin. She was shocky, and had to be helped to the surface once, but she noticeably began to stabilize. SimsÂ’ consultation with NOAA, and an assessment of our resources on island, indicated that the best thing to do would be to release the dolphin to the open ocean. As night was falling, and a small craft advisory was in effect, we decided to keep the dolphin in the adult pool just over night, and return her to a spot away from the rocks at rst light. Emon Beach was selected based on its proximity to an ocean pass, and the ability of human volunteers to get her into the water safely for both dolphin and themselves. My students, some of their parents, and myself then sat up all night with the dolphin to ensure that A) her medical condition did not deteriorate to the point she needed aid, and B) to keep interested island citizens from swimming with her (thus adding to her stress). The next day, a team of adults very successfully, with almost no unwanted stress, were able to lift the dolphin into the back of a truck for transport. At the release at Emon, the dolphin seemed unsure of where to go, and a passing LCM seemed to compound this. At this time she started swimming near the coral of North Point. Sharon Hurt and I got the dolphin out from the coral. We cleared the beach of spectators, especially children, in the event that no further rescue actions could be taken. We were noti ed that the small crafty advisory had been lifted, so a boat from the Host Nations Of ce was dispatched. We lifted the dolphin into the boat, drove out SARS pass, and released her about a half mile off Carlson. When last seen, she was swimming at the surface under her own power. All things considered, this was a success. This story has many heroes, and I will try to thank as many people as I can, limited as I am in knowing names, and focused as I was on trying to ful ll my role as I understood it. Thank you Ken Sims, Cathy Madore, and the rest of the Environmental representatives for your honest and sincere efforts to help coordinate and provide resources for a wounded animal. Thank you to Chief Dennis Johnson and the Kwajalein Police Department for your quick and professional efforts to secure and regulate the adult pool, turning it from a potential circus of curiosity into a temporary haven for the stranded dolphin. Additional thanks for the KPD police of cer who, at 2 a.m., brought me caffeine. Thank you to Mike Vick, and the rest of the adult volunteers who got into the pool; you did an amazing job. Thanks to all the parents of my students for your time, supplies, encouragement and letting your kids stay up all night. Lastly, to my students who helped with the dolphin; your willingness to help (and the quality of your efforts) speaks for itself. There are not many who will go without sleep to watch a dolphin for 10 hours in the dark. You are, each and every one of you, heroes. -Eric Nelson KHS Marine Science teacherkodo clouds(s)To submit a letter to the editor: Keep letters to less than 300 words, and keep com ments to the issues.

Saturday, Feb. 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3Beached dolphin helped by residentsHelping hands come together to make a difference See Dolphin, Page 7By Nell M. Drumheller EditorSunday evening around 4 p.m., Wes Blacketer, who works in U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll public works, noticed something unusual in the water on the rocks behind the Bargain Bazaar. A mature female spinner dolphin had stranded herself on the coral and rocks. “I was riding my bike pulling my daughter Rachael along the lagoon path towards downtown. I don’t usually go that way but thought it would be a change of scenery for Rachael. I was about two hundred yards from the Bargain Bazaar and caught sight of something out of the corner of my eye sticking out of the water behind it. At rst I thought it was a shark and wondered why such a big shark was so close to the shore. As I got closer to the Bargain Bazaar and got another clear shot of the animal, I realized it was a dolphin dorsal. The way it was bobbing around, I was pretty sure it was dead and wasn’t sure I wanted my daughter to see. I decided to stop and get a closer look before pointing it out to her. Once behind the building, I could plainly see the dolphin. It was breathing and slowly heading south down the shore line as it tried to beach itself. It was having great dif culty staying above water. A couple times it actually got its entire body up between the rst two sets of large rocks but the waves were high enough to keep dislodging it. At this time, the dolphin already had cuts and a bloody snout from the rocks. During the time I was observing the dolphin, I also heard another dolphin but couldn’t spot where it was. It made calls a couple of times and then no one else heard it again,” he said. “I wasn’t sure who to contact for a moment and then thought of Ken Sims. He and I work together for USAKA Public Works and he is our local lead for environmental issues. While thinking where the closest phone was, I remembered the tennis tournament and that Ken was one of the folks running it. Rachael and I hurried over there and informed Ken and the others what we had found. Ken immediately took the lead with Miguel Busquets and Vince Cardillo assisting. Vince, at Ken’s suggestion quickly volunteered to get in the water and keep the dolphin away from the rocks. The dolphin was so spent that Vince was able to hold it up across his arms without any protest from the dolphin. It was then suggested that someone video our efforts. I volunteered and went to get my video camera. Upon returning, the group, ever growing, had already got the dolphin out of the water and into the back of a pickup. Soon after, they transported it to the adult pool. My family and I followed the truck over to the pool and continued video taping,” he continued. “I immediately went to look at the dolphin as did others. The dolphin was de nitely weak and in trouble. It was getting thrashed severely into the coral stones and was bleeding from many cuts. Vince Cardillo got into the water and pulled the dolphin out of the rocks. It did not resist and he held it there until I could get some help,” Ken Sims, chief USAKA Environmental Of ce, said. Sims said that to try and save this member of a protected species was of immediate concern. “I decided that the best place to put the dolphin so it could be given a decent chance to recover was the adult pool. I also considered the turtle pond, but due to the condition of the dolphin and not knowing if it was diseased or not, I decided not to put it there,” he added. Sims said he then found a pickup truck nearby and asked the driver to take the dolphin to the adult pool. The dolphin was very weak and had a hard time getting to the surface to breathe when rst placed in the adult pool at about 5:30 p.m. Sims contacted the marine mammal experts at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Honolulu for advice. He spoke to John Naughton and was told that it was safe to keep the dolphin in the chlorinated pool. It is very rare for a dolphin to beach itself here, according to Cathy Madore, a Project Environmental lead with Kwajalein Range Services. “The chlorine in the pool had dissipated since the pool had been cleaned on Wednesday,” Madore said. She added that Naughton thought that the slightly-chlorinated water would help the dolphin’s many cuts heal. The dolphin was ‘shocky’ when put in the pool according to Eric Nelson, Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School Marine Biology teacher. “I advised the best place to keep the dolphin. I stayed with the dolphin in the water when we rst placed it in pool. I also stayed with it at the pool during the night, keeping an eye on her, the students and curious citizens,” Nelson said. Madore added that the dolphin ‘tanked’ or sank to the bottom of the pool a few times. “Eric [Nelson] dove into the pool and helped bring the dolphin to the surface,” she said. Nelson and students from Kwajalein High School spent the night at the pool, monitoring the dolphin. “She became stronger in the night,” Madore said. Sims said that Naughton stated that most dolphins do not survive a beaching or stranding episode. “He suggested if the dolphin makes it through the night to try and release it the Eric Nelson assists a spinner dolphin that had beached itself on the rocks near the Bargain Bazaar.

Saturday, Feb. 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Pvt. Clement W. Anderson Catamaran dedicated By Mig Owens Assistant EditorThe second of Kwajalein’s new catamarans was dedicated Monday by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander COL Beverly Stipe and family members of its namesake, Pvt. Clement W. Anderson, at a ceremony held at Echo Pier. The vessel honors the World War II contributions of Anderson, who was awarded the Silver Star for bravery under re in January, 1944. According to the Silver Star citation, “he crawled under heavy enemy re to deliver machine gun ammunition and assist in operating the machine gun. When the enemy attacked the position with powerful offensive grenades, Private Anderson located the hidden enemy, dueled with them at a distance of 10 yards and directed the re of the machine gun until enemy resistance was wiped out.” Five days later, Anderson was killed in action by enemy ri e re while assaulting a Japanese dugout. The Silver Star citation continued, “Private Anderson’s heroism, aggressiveness and cool thinking were an inspiration to his unit throughout the action.” Anderson’s achievements made a signi cant difference during the Kwajalein Campaign and his action was a determining factor in bringing the ght to a swift conclusion, COL Stipe stated in her speech. “We live in a world shaped in so many ways by his will and heart,” she said. “Some achievements fade with the years, but Anderson’s achievements grow larger with the passing of time.”Participating in the dedication ceremony were Anderson’s three nephews, George Summerside, Stephen Summerside and Clement Anderson, as well as his great-nephew, Matthew Anderson. Speaking on behalf of the family, Clement shared that his earliest recollection of his uncle was a portrait at his grandmother’s house, alongside the Silver Star citation; “a quiet tribute to her oldest son,” he said. “At an early age, [Pvt. Anderson] learned the meaning of hard work,” he said, “When his father became ill while working on a road crew, Clement, at the age of 14, took his father’s place and during this period, was the primary family provider.” Drafted into service in 1940, Pvt. Anderson served stateside until A tribute to Silver Star and Purple Heart recipient Pvt. Clement W. Anderson is mounted prominently inside the catamaran. Anderson’s nephews, Stephen Summerside, George Summerside and Clement Anderson enjoy the view from the bridge of the catamaran while great-nephew Matt Anderson takes the controls during its rst cruise.


Saturday, Feb. 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass at the loss of her son was evident, though his grandfather worked to maintain composure. “After that, any other tragedy in the family didn’t affect her quite as much,” he said. Great-nephew, Matt, considers the catamaran dedication a “great honor for a family and a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” which is why he said he chose to attend. At 30, he represents the younger generation of Andersons. Matt said his eyes welled up a couple of times and that seeing the catamaran with his great uncle’s name on it, “along with everything the Army’s done for us” made him emotional. When asked what his uncle might say about the day’s events, he responded, “I would think he’d be very humbled. It would be hard to get him out here even – that would be my guess.” Among the family’s stops on their rst-ever trip to the Marshall Islands for the dedication, they toured the bunkers on Roi-Namur. Stephen, the quietest of the group, said he could only imagine what his uncle might have faced there 60 years ago.“You can see young guys going into that jungle and there are people in there who want to kill you,” he said. Of his uncle, Stephen said, “He honored himself and his country well.”5(Illustrations by Dan Adler) (Photos by Mig Owens) December of 1941. When World War II broke out, he served overseas, and in June of 1943, was sent to the South Paci c. “My uncle did answer his country’s call,” Clement, said. “His service and sacri ce have instilled in me a deep gratitude for the American veterans who have defended our country for over two centuries and who have made that ultimate sacri ce – their lives – so we may enjoy the freedoms that we so often take for granted.” Anderson was a son, a brother, devoted friend, farm worker, miner and a Soldier, Clement said. By keeping his uncle’s memory alive, he said, “freedom becomes precious, maybe because we will have a better understanding of the price.” During his remarks, Clement read a proclamation from Michael Rounds, governor of South Dakota, who proclaimed Feb. 21, 2005 Private Clement W. Anderson Day in honor of “his service and sacri ce for the state of South Dakota and the United States.” Anderson’s oldest nephew, George, then christened the catamaran alongside Lt. Col. Anne Daugherty, Reagan Test Site commander. In researching his uncle’s contributions for this and various other celebrations, he gathered information from his uncle’s siblings, Uncle Thorvald (Tub) Anderson, 78, and Aunt Atrdis Rudd, 86. He said that the catamaran dedication, a year in the making, was far beyond his expectations. “It’s wonderful that we can be here,” he said. “Bringing this [experience] back [to the family] will mean a lot.” George said that in talking with his Uncle Tub and Aunt Atrdis, he learned that his Uncle Clement liked sports and horses. “But, due to the times, he was thrown into a different world.” George said he learned that his grandmother’s grief Kwajalein Pipes and Drums Corps members Richard and Leah Perry, Gil Godlewski and Kris White play from the bow.COL Beverly Stipe, United States Army Kwajalein Atoll commander, addresses attendees during the dedication ceremony.

The screenings are in the form of a short interview, required before being granted access to the United States Army Kwajalein Atoll. Screening began in October following a visitation policy change. The goal of the policy is to allow the “safe and orderly movement of individuals on and off the installation,” according to Lt. Col. Mark Harmon, Provost Marshall. Implementation is in the hands of the Kwajalein Police Department, who verify that individuals are authorized entry by checking the escorted access list, which is maintained by the Kwajalein Resident Of ce and located at the Dock Security Checkpoint. “Knowledge of who is entering the installation is a prerequisite for ensuring the safety and security of residents and guests,” Harmon said. According to Dana Lum, Human Resources supervisor, Kwajalein Range Services works closely with USAKA and the Host Nation of ce when considering applicants who are third country nationals because such status may affect their ability to work and reside on Kwajalein.

Sims decided the next course of action would be to release the dolphin back into the wild. The plan was set for 8 a.m. on Monday, when the dolphin would be returned to Emon beach and released. “Even though she had improved during the night, we felt like she was too weak to be released on the ocean side,” Madore said. She said the rescue team could remain with the dolphin in the lagoon until she got her bearings. “We let her go and encouraged her to move out,” Madore added. Plan ‘A’ went awry when the dolphin beached herself again. “She showed signs of shock,” Madore said. “We were seriously afraid for her life,” she added. Naughton had warned them that only one-in-three dolphins survive a beaching. Madore said that the dolphin appeared to be distressed from the Kwajalein-Ebeye ferry. “We decided to take her to the ocean side and release her,” Madore said. Maj. David Coffey, chief of the Host Nation Of ce, was the next player in the rescue effort. “My kids said there was a dolphin in the adult pool. At rst I thought it was a practical joke, but then I remembered this is Kwaj and it had to be true,” he said of how he found out about the beached dolphin. Like many people on the island, when he heard about the dolphin he wandered down to the pool to “gawk, with the rest.” He also offered the services of the Host Nation Boat to Sims. “The next morning Ken [Sims] came by my house and long story short, I used the HNO [host nation of ce] boat to pick up the dolphin [and some helpers], took them all out through SAR pass for the release,” he said.Madore said that the dolphin, which weighed approximately 80 pounds, was docile and easy to put into the boat. At approximately 9:30 a.m. on Monday, the dolphin was released near Carlson, and was last seen “swimming vigorously” away according to Madore.Nelson said of the experience for his students, “It was a very real lesson. Not only did it start a series of conversations, and formed a real world context for a research paper on marine mammal strandings, the actual event itself was rich in life lessons such as: ‘The responsibility of caregiving,’ ‘watching a real problem solving exercise in real time,’ ‘the behavior of various members of our community during an emotionally charged event,’ and the realities of nature it’s not always a Disney ending.’ Where else, but on Kwaj, can students actually have hands on experience with endangered sea turtles, endangered giant clams, and participate in a marine mammal rescue and watch. This year’s Marine Science students have had an opportunity set unlike anything they can get in the states. This is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity.” What causes a marine mammal to beach itself? Madore said that there is no proof as to what brought this dolphin onto the rocks. Simone Smead, Community Activities Department manager, said that Community Activities closed the pool after the potentially sick, bleeding dolphin had been in the pool until the pool could be cleaned. “This was unfortunate on a three-day weekend but we hope people understand and possibly saving the dolphin’s life was worth it,” she said. High School Marine Biology students Kendal Young, Bret Young, David Waddell, Morgan Crabtree and Will O’Connell spent the night at the pool monitoring the dolphin. Students Elizabeth Keck, Ashley DeLong, Margret Geeslin and Rebekah Ladd spent part of the night with the dolphin according to Nelson. While the team of people who helped save this dolphin should be praised, Madore said that for future reference, the community should not be encouraged by this to put animals they nd into the pools.

Movie star Bo Laramie (Cole Hauser) is understandably furious when, thanks to the notorious celebrity chasers, his wife, Abby (Robin Tunney), is seriously injured, and his 8-year-old son is paralyzed. After the accident, Bo dedicates his life to putting a stop to a paparazzo’s deadly overzealousness.

Despite the overwhelming evidence against Mr. Krabs – not to mention having been turned down for a longawaited promotion at the restaurant – SpongeBob (voice of Tom Kenny) refuses to believe that his boss is responsible and teams up with his best friend, Patrick (voice of Bill Fagerbakke), on a mission to Shell City, where he hopes he can exonerate Mr. Krabs and return the crown to its rightful owner.
