In the March 19 issue of the Hourglass, incorrect information was published concerning cooking appliances in the bachelor quarters. The correct information, according to USAKA Housing Reg. 210-50, Sec. 13d is: Only approved cooking appliances will be allowed for use in UPH buildings and transient quarters. Microwave ovens, air convection ovens without exposed heating coils, coffee pots, crock pots, pop-up toasters, slow cookers (including rice and ‘hot air’ cookers), and bread makers are approved. Other electronic cooking appliances are prohibited. Appliances with open heating elements (e.g., hot plates, toaster ovens, or electric frying pans/woks) may be con scated and retained for evidentiary purposes. CorrectionSome of the best moments and memories of my life involve baseball. The best days spent with my father were sitting in the cheap general admission seats in old Sportsman’s Park watching the St. Louis Cardinals play the game. I was privileged to have seen the likes of Stan Musial, Bob Gibson, Julian Javier and the amazing Lou Brock. Together, my father and I sat in the upper deck on a cold September afternoon and watched with breaths held when Tim McCarver caught a foul pop-up for the last out, as the Cardinals defeated the Mets in the last game of the season and completed a miracle of coming from 10 games behind the Philadelphia Philies to win the 1964 National League pennant. I will never forget the great Harry Carey yelling over the public address system, “The Cardinals win the pennant!” over and over. Baseball was as important to me as breathing. I agonized when the Cardinals lost and rejoiced when they won. Year after year, we rooted for the same players because back then, unless they were traded or let go, players stayed with the same team their whole playing lives. Incredible players such as Ernie Banks, “Mr. Cub,” never got close to a championship because they spent their careers with losing teams. Before free agency, ball players were blue-collar guys. They really didn’t make that much money. They lived in middleclass neighborhoods. Stan Musial sometimes rode home on the streetcar with fans. For the most part, they were regular guys except they got to do what so many of us wished we could — play baseball. Then the days of the free agent arrived with players starting to make millions and jumping from team to team, year after year, to the highest bidder. Players had no loyalty to the team they played for or the fans who came to see them play. They weren’t ball players, they were businessmen with agents and lawyers on their payrolls, so fans making middle-class money could pay $10 or more for nosebleed seats and buy $5 hotdogs and beer so the owners could pay the millions the players demanded for services. By the way,

Saturday, March 26, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassBad behavior could result in being barred3Teens must follow military rules By Nell M. Drumheller EditorWednesday night in a Town Hall speci cally for teens, their parents and educators, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site Commander COL Beverly Stipe and Dennis O’Connell, USAKA command legal advisor laid out the rules for behavior for teens on Kwajalein. Breaking and entering, burglary, drug use and underage drinking were primary concerns at the meeting. O’Connell began the Town Hall recalling an event from about 18 months ago “At that time a series of incidents began that involved young people going into other people’s houses, taking prescription medicines; sometimes they were breaking into these homes to obtain these medicines. Then they would ground them up into powder and inhale them, sometimes combining them with alcohol – sometimes not. Then one night a bunch of them got together, they combined some of these prescription medicines in powder form, drank a bunch of alcohol, inhaled the drugs, two of them ended up semi-conscious in the hospital, another was seriously ill. Any one of them could have died; any one of them could have had serious permanent damage. The consequences were that six young people were barred from this island. Three families had to move away. Another family was separated. Two families that remained had to receive special permission from the command just to have a visit from their children.” Both O’Connell and COL Stipe said their concerns came from caring about the young population on Kwajalein. “I see so much talent in our youth,” the colonel said. “You’ve got to be able to look each other in the eye and say ‘no, I won’t do that. I’m not going to place myself at risk. I’m not going to place my friends at risk and I’m not going to place my family at risk,’” O’Connell said. COL Stipe said, “Everything is a choice. Every decision you make is a choice – you have to choose between right or wrong. “You young people are living on a military installation. That means you have to abide by the military rules and regulations,” she said. “Those rules apply to everybody on this island,” she added. She said that when young people don’t make the right decisions, they are forcing her to make decisions for them. She said that her decisions could be painful for the young people and could be painful for their families. O’Connell said that he has received numerous complaints from community members who are concerned about the underage drinking. “I hear it from teachers, parents and kids,” he said. “There have been break-ins, there have been thefts and we have to stop it now.” He added that possessing and consuming alcohol, if you are under 21, and breaking and entering is a crime. “If they [the crimes] were committed back in good ‘ol Pleasantville, U.S.A. where you came from [they] would land you smack dab in the middle of the juvenile justice system,” he said. There isn’t a juvenile justice system on military installations. According to O’Connell, administrative measures are taken to “manage our dif culties.” On Kwajalein, a Juvenile Review Board is used to recommend action for unacceptable and/or illegal actions committed by juveniles. “The board can make any recommendations that it deems appropriate. Typically, they recommend curfew, community service, restitution (in cases where there is property loss or damage), writing exercises or loss of privileges. Anything appropriate that they recommend will be considered by the command,” O’Connell said. Currently, four teens are under curfew and are performing community service. He added that typically the board consists of a panel of three to ve members all of whom are site managers or organizational representatives. “The con guration of any particular panel will vary depending on availability and/or con ict of interest.” Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities Department manages and schedules the JRB community service work schedule. It accounts for the hours of service and reports results to the Kwajalein Police Department and to the USAKA Legal Of ce. Curfew is spot checked by KPD. The colonel said that she wanted to make sure the teens of the community understood what she expected from them, saying that underage drinking, inappropriate use of prescription drugs and use of illegal substances is not acceptable. She said that use of illegal drugs would get the offender removed from the island. On other issues, “if you’re a onetime offender the JRB takes care of it. If you’re a two-time offender, I take care of it. Grandma’s house is not that far away, believe it,” she said. O’Connell said that he has heard from people that many think the JRB is a big joke. “You get caught doing something, you get sent to the JRB. You tell them you are on the honor roll and you’re sorry. All you get is a curfew or community service and maybe you have to write some dumb essay about peer pressure. And it’s all a big joke – ha, ha, ha. That’s not the joke. The joke is what I hear coming out of the mouths of some of the people coming before the JRB. I’ll give you an example: ‘Janie, where’d you get the alcohol? It was in a paper bag in the bushes and I found, it was in a cardboard box behind the dumpster and I found it. Well Janie, who was with you..oh I can’t remember, but I’m on the honor roll.’ So what are we supposed to do about that? We don’t have a criminal justice system. We don’t have a jail we can send you to.” O’Connell said he has some ideas for repercussions. “Maybe we could just suspend all of your privileges on the island…no beach, no movies, no retail sales, no boats, no sports – how about that?” He also suggested the possibility of kicking the student out of school for a couple of weeks, saying that averaging in the zeros would bring down the grade point average of the honor stuSee Teens, Page 7

Saturday, March 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Crew members of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter SEQUOIA, referred to as Deck Force, prepare for the ship to pull up a buoy in Kwaj waters for inspection and repair. (Photos by Mig Owens)By Mig Owens Assistant EditorFor the hardworking crewmembers of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter SEQUOIA, the long hours spent in the hot sun in sometimes rough seas under dangerous conditions are worth it. “Who else gets to see places like this?” said Petty Of cer Paul Church, boatswain’s mate and member of the Deck Force department, as he pointed from SEQUOIA to the island of Kwajalein. Church is one of the 55 crewmembers aboard the 225-ft Juniper Class Seagoing Buoy Tender whose job it is to service the 99 buoys, or “aids to navigation” as they are called, scattered throughout the waters of Micronesia, the Commonwealth of Northern Marianas and Guam. The New York native joined the Coast Guard after a boatswain’s “boat stories” peaked his curiosity. Church explained that what interested him most was the scope of the job. “You go to re ghting school, ooding school and do a lot of drills,” he said. “Out here, it’s about people’s lives and safety.” Based in Guam, SEQUOIA visits Kwajalein every two years, at a minimum, to service its navigation aids. The ship arrived on March 18 and will stay through the end of the month. Buoy tending is the heart of the ship’s work, according to Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Meilstrup. He explained that aids to navigation serve the purpose of guiding vessels so they don’t run aground. Among SEQUOIA’s missions is also search and rescue. According to the ship’s brochure, the vessel’s area of responsibility is about the size of the continental United States. Meilstrup said that as recently as 10 days ago on the way to Pohnpei to conduct recruiting and law enforcement work, SEQUOIA was diverted to render aid to a sick or injured crewmember of a Japanese vessel. “We rendered assistance and took him to a hospital in Chuuk,” he said. Of the search and rescue aspect of the job, Meilstrup said, “That’s the hallmark of Coast Guard work.” He added that the ship’s next primary mission is maritime security. While on Kwajalein, SEQUOIA’s crew will replace any missing aids and perform routine servicing of existing aids, which involves checking lights, chains and wear and tear. “There are a wide variety of shapes and sizes and Coast Guard Cutter SEQUOIA tends toKwajalein’s buoys, navigation aids

According to Meilstrup, aids to navigation in need of refurbishment are taken to Hawaii where they are repaired and then put back into service. “Some have been around a while. Fifty to 60 year-old buoys are not uncommon,” he said. The most unique characteristic of Kwajalein’s buoys, he said, is the deep moorings, or chains, indicative of deep water. A typical evolution conducted to service a buoy involves use of the ship’s heavy equipment. A drum pulls the chain to the ship while the crane, which can hold up to 40,000 pounds, lifts the buoy out of the water. The Deck Force crew then hooks onto the buoy and it is maneuvered onto the ship. According to Chief Warrant Of cer Hunter Crider, or “BOSN” as he is called, it is important to pull the buoy weight chain straight up for the least amount of tension when bringing a buoy onboard. “It’s a dirty, dangerous job – most people don’t realize we even do it,” Crider said. Those dangers are inherent when working with loadhandling equipment and buoys that are “shaped to be in the water, not on deck,” he added. “Everything is heavy,” Crider said of the 8,500-pound buoy, 2,800-pound counterweight and 12,500-pound sinker blocks on deck. “If something decides to go in a certain direction, there’s not much a human being can do. It’s choreography – you do the same thing each time.” As Deck Force members learn the “dance,” they advance from green hard hats to blue and on to yellow, which signi es the rigger who boasts an extra level of expertise. The rigger assists the buoy deck supervisor, who wears a white hard hat. After a buoy is serviced, the same machinery is used to carefully send it back over the side of the ship. In a typical 12-hour working day, anywhere from ve to eight aids to navigation may be serviced. Also a diver, Church said that the same type of evolution performed on deck is routinely performed under water when conditions deem it unsafe for SEQUOIA to close in on a buoy. SEQUOIA is one of only three ships with dive teams. The others located in Hawaii. One of only two women onboard, Lt.j.g. Victoria Futch’s responsibility is driving SEQUOIA as it positions itself near the buoys to be serviced. “It’s a lot of responsibility to get close so the Deck Force can safely hook it,” Futch said. “You have to have good timing and use the elements to your advantage.” A third generation member of the Coast Guard, Futch remembers stories told by her grandfather, who graduated from the Coast Guard Academy in 1945, as well as by her uncle. Futch explained that she likes the idea of buoy tending because “you can see results and know you’re making a difference right then and there.” She added that she also enjoys the search and rescue aspect of the job. “So much commerce goes by sea – knowing we’re making the waterways a safer place is rewarding,” she said, adding that Kwajalein has the majority of buoys in SEQUOIA’s area of responsibility, making this one of their longest trips. Futch is one of many crewmembers who “crossdecked” from the U.S.C.G. SASSAFRAS to SEQUOIA in October 2003 when it was commissioned. She is one of many considered “plank owners” as part of the rst crew of the ship. What the SEQUOIA crew has in common, she said, is their work ethic. After a typical 12-hour day, each is responsible for standing watch, doing rounds and various other jobs, said Meilstrup. “These are some of the hardest working ships in the Coast Guard,” he said. “This is a versatile ship and a versatile crew. Buoy tending is one of the Coast Guard’s less glamorous missions, but it’s vitally important,” Meilstrup said.

Saturday, March 26, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 By Brandon StevisonHourglass internThere are two different newspapers created on Kwajalein. They’re not exactly competing, and one you may never even see. The second newspaper in reference here (second to the Hourglass ) is the high school newspaper, Enan Eo Enan Eo is a Marshallese phrase literally meaning “The Word.” The paper typically gets released about once a month and consists of eight pages, front and back. The articles that are printed inside range all the way from “Bike of the Month” (student submitted) to “Point-Counterpoints” about current politics or other national news. One of the more popular articles is the “Dear Jack” letter, where students send in problems they are having (jokingly) and our very own “Jack” dishes out some harsh advice. The Enan Eo staff is made up of eight reporters, three of whom have separate jobs. The layout manager (David Waddell) puts together the articles into something that looks like a newspaper, while the two editors (Lindsay Davis and I) revise everybody’s articles, before they’re given to our advisor, Kent Fielding. Fielding then revises the articles for mistakes the editors missed, and eventually gives the rough draft paper to the school High school reporters get “Enan Eo” outBaseball from Page 2 those seats my father and I sat in cost $1 each. Years went by. The player strikes happened and fans almost quit caring about baseball. Only teams with vast sums of money had any chance of winning. Some seasons were over before they began. Everyone knew it would be Steinbrenner’s Yankees and whichever National League team shelled out the most money that year. I moved around the country and stopped following my beloved Redbirds like I had in the past. Baseball had lost its luster. I just didn’t care that much. But then came 1998. Possibly the greatest and most thrilling year baseball had seen in many years. It didn’t involve the pennant race or even teams. It involved two men — Mark McGwire of the Cardinals and Sammy Sosa of the Cubs. Together these men chased the single season home run record. Fans were energized. Wherever these men played, stadiums were sold out. Fans didn’t come to see their teams, they came to watch these guys put on the most amazing display of power hitting anyone had ever seen. People who previously had never watched a baseball game watched avidly any game that either of the men played in. Baseball was alive again. Stadiums were lled with fans. The strikes didn’t matter. Greedy players and owners didn’t matter. All that mattered was the game and what McGwire and Sosa were accomplishing. Baseball was back. They had saved it. But now we see two men who are idolized by millions of baseball fans, two men who saved the game, two men that a nation loves sitting before a congressional committee. One swears he never used steriods, one refuses to say. I think most of us really knew something was up during that amazing season. While McGwire had always been a big man and a power hitter, he had become massive and his homers sailed 500 feet or more. Sammy Sosa was a skinny kid who all of a sudden was a muscled monster hitting home runs out of Wrigley Field and other ballparks like it was nothing. Maybe we knew, but we didn’t want to because they were saving baseball. They made us fans again. Barry Bonds, who many consider one the greatest players of all time, is under the shadow now. How does a guy nearing 40 years old pack on 30 pounds of muscle and start hitting 50 or more homers per season? Now Bonds is having a second knee surgery and it is unknown whether he will play this season. Mark McGwire had to retire because of a knee problem that nothing would x. Maybe it’s coincidence, but steroids eat joints. These three men whose accomplishments thrilled the country may be breaking our hearts. Baseball has survived a lot through its glorious history. Fans always loved the game more than they hated what was happening to it. I hope it will survive this. I will always love Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa for making me care about baseball again. But I will always be sad about the way they may have done it. principal and various other levels of people who make sure that there’s nothing objective in the paper, and that it’s alright to get printed. After everything is completely edited, one of the reporters or Fielding takes the nalized paper down to Reproduction Services where it is then copied, and nally distributed to the student body. Most of the Enan Eo staff loves writing for the paper. Lisa Barbella, staff reporter, said, “It’s a fair amount of work, but it pays off when you see the nal product.” Waddell had this to say about his work as the layout manager, “It’s different every day, sometimes it’s fun, sometimes it’s frustrating, and other times just interesting.” Writing for one paper is great fun and experience; writing for two papers is even more fun and experience, but a little tricky. Often times I’ll forget that I’m also writing an article for the Hourglass (or viseversa), or I’ll put priority on one or the other. When it all comes down to it though, managing this time and energy through these two papers is good preparation for a possible future in journalism. If you’re ever given the opportunity, give the Enan Eo a look-at. It’s well worth your time. Track down a high school student and get them to snag you a copy of “The Word.”

The major incentive for compliance is the understanding that further and harsher action would result from non-compliance,” O’Connell said. “Don’t make this command make an example of someone,” he said. “Don’t make this command punish your family for something you have done.” He said, “I can promise you the next time there’s a serious incident there are going to be very serious consequences.” Teens from Page 3 Portraying the disciples at the Protestant congregation’s Living Last Supper, Thursday at the Island Memorial Chapel are: Jeff Compton as Bartholomew, Rick Funk as James the Lesser, David Ladd as Andrew, Rob Robbins as Judas, Les Habig as Peter, Ralph Reaves as John, Torry Landers as Jesus, Doug Hepler as James, Dan Adler as Thomas, Will O’Connell as Phillip, Ken Sims as Matthew, Jim Cossey as Thaddeus,and Will Atkins as Simon the Zealot. This is the second year the congregation has put on the production on Maundy Thursday, which is the day the Last Supper is commemorated, according to Funk. “Each disciple re ects on their relationship with Jesus and it’s important for us to do the same,” he said.(Photo by Mig Owens)

Honoring fallen heroesBy Mig Owens Assistant EditorWhat started as a longing to play music “all day long,” has become an island tradition, according to Jim Stepchew, coordinator. Now in its fth year, this year’s Spring Break Music Festival, to be held April 3, 1-10 p.m. at Emon Beach, promises food, fun and, of course, lots of music. Event proceeds go to the Shriners, though a myriad of other organizations are involved. The chili cook-off is sponsored by the Kwajalein Yacht Club and the beer garden run by local home brewers. Appetites may also be satis ed by way of the ethnic food booth or BBQ-style service from Kwajalein Range Services Food Services. New this year is a small craft fair, obstacle challenge, and Armed Forces Entertainment band The Viki Nova Band, which will headline the nine local bands participating, according to Stepchew. “This event is a great way for the community to come out and relax, forget about the stress of work and other things, listen to some good music, enjoy good food and have a great time,” he said. “Expect to have fun.” Stepchew emphasized that the purpose of Spring Break Music Festival is for people to enjoy themselves, and added “the more we raise the more kids from the outer islands can get free medical care provided.”
