Box 23, Local; or It’s a good day . .should I get out of bed now? It was one of those days. I sat there and thought to myself, “So far this has been a perfect day! I haven’t made any mistakes, I haven’t offended anyone, I’ve only said kind and good words, my attitude is right and my spirit is buoyant. Well, I guess it’s time to get out of bed.” Rising out of bed and making my way to the kitchen I had visions of sitting in the light of a glorious sunrise and greeting the morning with a bright and cheerful voice. I have a very smart coffee pot. If I add the right amount of water and coffee grounds the night before and set the timer for the time I plan to wake up, it congratulates my planning and foresight by brewing a wonderful cup of hot, delicious coffee. There’s one other requirement – I must fully latch the coffee-grounds basket in place. Otherwise, my fresh hot coffee pours all over the counter. It was one of those days. The moment that I should have been sitting in my chair enjoying my rst cup of coffee I spent standing over the counter trying to contain the spillage all the while realizing that I would have to brew another pot of coffee. As I’m waiting for the second pot of coffee to dutifully drain into the decanter, the phone rings, “Where are you?” I’ve always thought that a silly question to ask when someone calls you at home. “I’m here.” They respond, “Yes, I realize that. The question is why aren’t you here?” On Kwaj we relax and forgo the need for complicated stateside devices such as cell phones, palm pilots and ball point pens. You really shouldn’t need a reminder that you are a pastor and you agreed to perform a sunrise wedding. But if there was an Olympic Event for shaving, changing and riding a one speed about a quarter mile, I’m sure I would have come in at least third. Finally, my vision for the morning became a reality. The rising sun, glistening on the turbulent surf, re ected brilliant light on the beach and bride. Morning mist and mishaps faded into daylight delight and the promise of better tomorrows. It was one of those days.

(Photo by Tony Maika)See FIRE, Page 7 By Nell M. Drumheller EditorThough there were no injuries, approximately 60 Marshallese were displaced Thursday night when a re on Ebeye destroyed from three to four residential dwellings, an apartment that was used to house nurses, as well as the Republic of Marshall Island’s Finance Building and a food services building. Six re ghters from the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll responded to a request from of cials on Ebeye, loaded a re truck onto the barge Manassas a landing craft utility vessel, and crossed the lagoon to lend aid. The Marshallese government contacted the Kwajalein Hospital at 7:10 p.m. and relayed to them that there was a re on Ebeye, formally requesting assistance to put it out. The Kwajalein Fire Department was already aware of the re and had a plan in place to assist the Ebeye community according to Jerry Leverett, assistant re chief. He said that they received a call that someone saw smoke from Ebeye. Leverett called Lt. Col. Gerald Davie, Operations of cer, and gave him the heads up that there might be a problem on Ebeye that would require USAKA support. Within minutes, the re department was noti ed that an of cial request for assistance had come in. “At approximately 7:15 p.m., of cials from the island of Ebeye requested assistance in re ghting operations,” Leverett said. In cooperation with USAKA Plans, Training and Security, contingency plans were activated for a possible off-island response. “USAKA activated the EOC [Emergency Operations Center] which included island representatives from USAKA and KRS [Kwajalein Range Services]. The primary concern was to provide assistance extinguishing the re and preparing to help with medical assis-


Saturday, April 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Global positioning available for boatersWhere in the world . By Mig Owens Assistant EditorHand-held global positioning system units now available at the Small Boat Marina have allowed for extension of the B-boat range, enabling boaters to venture up to three miles farther from the reef. “Safety is the entire purpose of the units,” Christian Rusby, Small Boat Marina supervisor, said, “The perk is that they serve as navigational aids for divers to locate certain spots and for shermen to gauge how far they are from the reef.” The units arrived in January and to date, 16 new boat-license holders carry the GPS endorsement, as it was included in their instruction. The rst class to offer the same endorsement to existing license holders is Wednesday. Those interested may sign up for the class at the Small Boat Marina. “We’re excited about being able to offer new programs at the Marina,” Rusby said. “GPS is a reference for the operator so that they don’t nd themselves in trouble with the police or the Marina,” Rusby said. “They can also help divers pinpoint underwater wrecks and coral formations. More importantly, they can aid in emergency response.” The GPS units utilize a network of satellites that circle the earth to pinpoint locations. According to Rusby, the 14 units available at the Small Boat Marina provide accuracy to within 20 feet. The units feature 12 channels, are water resistant and weigh a mere 5.3 ounces. Explained Mike Moore, USAKA Installation Safety of cer, “The Paci c Ocean environment can change quickly from a peaceful and clear condition into one with high waves accompanied by rain squalls and limited visibility. Having a GPS and knowing how to use it can greatly assist boaters in finding ‘waypoints’ back through passes in the reef to make a safe transit back to Kwajalein.” Roy Howard, AirScan Rotary Wing Training instructor pilot, is a boat operator familiar with the use of GPS by way of his job, at which he uses four different types. He said that the GPS units used today are extremely user friendly. “The GPS offer us the opportunity to y direct to a way point therefore saving time and fuel,” Howard said. He added that the GPS units used in helicopters and airplanes make it quick and easy to mark and identify targets while performing reef sweeps and that the ability to make direct ights saves time and has a direct cost savings in maintenance labor and parts’ costs. “I believe GPS will enhance boating safety,” Howard said. “The ability to know where you are at all times, day or night, will not only help the operator but could also be of bene t to a recovery crew in the event of a break down. I believe that by using GPS the operator can better plan their outing and ensure they return on time.” Rusby explained that by the end of the summer, all boat license holders will be required to have a GPS rating and everyone who takes out a B-boat will have a GPS onboard.There are 14 e-Trex global positioning systems available at the Small Boat Marina to licensed B-boat drivers who obtain the endorsement.

Saturday, April 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass"The remedy, according to McGrew, is caution. “When parking, come in slow. Be a captain and direct your crew to help dock,” he said. “Don’t drive any faster than you’re willing to hit it,” McGrew said is the rule of thumb boaters should follow. Both Rusby and McGrew said that a high percentage of people have trouble docking, and for that reason, docking practice is offered for the new B-boats by the Marina. They suggest calling ahead to request a 15-20 minute practice with available staff. “We have a lot of inexperienced boaters,” Rusby said. “A woman who just got her license chipped the gel coat while docking, which is about 3/16” thick. We can patch it, but it will never be new again.” B-boat limits must be followed by boaters to ensure their personal safety and that of their passengers, explained Mike Moore, United States Kwajalein Atoll Installation Safety of cer. “Safety rules are not intended to stop people from enjoying recreational activities. They are there to get people to think about the possible hazards they may encounter,” Moore said. Once B-boat safety rules are understood, Moore said operators may “take appropriate countermeasures like ling a oat plan, taking floatation vests, signaling devices, checking diving equipment for proper operation, looking at weather projections and tide conditions to ensure their safety and wellbeing.” Moore added that when in doubt, always ask a Safety or Community Activities representative for the correct safety information before heading out and participating in a recreational water activity. “You’re completely nancially responsible for the boats,” Rusby said. “Just take your time and be more careful.” 5 By Mig Owens Assistant EditorProblems “parking” boats top the list of Small Boat Marina’s safety concerns, according to supervisors. Recently, improper anchoring and docking have cost operators both recreation time and money. Several hundred dollars in damages and a two-week license suspension was the price paid by one operator who did not cleat a B-boat properly, which caused it to break free from the anchor and drift ashore, explained Christian Rusby, Small Boat Marina supervisor. “It could have been more severe,” Rusby said, “if it had happened on oceanside, they might have lost the boat entirely. People assume that because the anchor is on the bottom, it’s going to hold and they don’t do the calculations,” Rusby said, which involves a scope of ve to one, as taught in the boat licensing class. Added Paul McGrew, also a Small Boat Marina supervisor, “It’s not like a car when you put it in park. The tides could change or the rope could fray from dragging.” He explained that if the anchor is dropped atop a coral head 20 feet down and the boat moves, the anchor does no good if the boat is suddenly over 120-foot deep waters. Another issue faced by Marina staff occurred when a driver, unfamiliar with the controls of the new boats, lost control and ran a boat up onto the dock. “And this was a frequent customer,” Rusby said. Damage to the brand-new boat, according to Rusby, cost the driver in excess of $300 and his negligence cost him a one-month suspension. He added that serious damage to three out of the six new B-boats has occurred in this manner.Boaters responsible for safe handling The anchor was not set correctly and allowed this boat to drift with the tide to shore.

Saturday, April 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Some fishing areas off limits during missions Gone shin' . in the wrong spot to keep folks out, ”Gibson said. This is a slow process by boat and takes several days that may be affected by weather conditions. According to Gibson, KPD is often called upon to ask people to move from one of the caution areas. “As an example, we have had to hold missions while KPD clears people out of the met rocket area. While this is happening, dozens of people are sitting on station waiting to continue the mission. This type of activity has in no way been limited to folks shing. It applies equally to everyone, divers, sailing, camping or beaching,” he said. While there are no physical markings on the islands to indicate the mid-atoll corridor or the mission caution areas, the Hourglass publishes maps to denote the areas. “The information is posted at the Small Boat Marina and at the oat plan drop off area,” Gibson said. “The mission caution areas change with each mission; however, the mid-atoll closure is the same each time.” Gibson added that when an area is closed or the KPD starts their reef sweeps, everyone they nd in the closed areas will be asked to leave. “The only people allowed in those areas are missionessential personnel. If someone feels they need to be in that area for a valid reason, they can contact the Range Safety Of cer for the mission and discuss their individual case,” he said. The RSO’s contact information is included on the mission announcements. Gibson said if you are found in the closed areas, you will be asked to leave, if you affect the mission or are repeatedly in violation, you could lose your boating rights at Kwaj or worse. “The degree of punishment may be determined by the Small Boat Marina personnel or raised up the chain of command to the USAKA commander. Of course, the ultimate punishment for this violation would be if you are struck by some object being tested during the mission,” he said. “We are here for your protection. The areas change with each mission, look at the maps in the Hourglass but if its the mid-atoll area, ocean side of east and west reef will most likely be open. If KPD asks you to leave, do so. If you have a question or too much Ono call the mission RSO,” he added. By Nell M. Drumheller EditorFishing in the waters surrounding the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll is considered, by many, as one of the most attractive bene ts of living in this area. Fishing might be an attraction, but the reason the Army and Kwajalein Range Services are in this part of the world is for the missions. When it’s mission time, many water ways are closed for shing. “Most missions have two types of areas that are closed,” said Tom Gibson, a safety analyst and Range Safety of cer for various missions. “The mid-atoll area closes several days before a mission so that KPD [Kwajalein Police Department] can go island-by-island and make sure no one is on the islands,” he said. The exact mid-atoll area is published in advance but is basically the central part of the lagoon area and the islands that bound it on the east and west. “The second closed area is the mission caution area; this area is where the vehicle is planned to impact. This area closes one hour before the mission. The caution area may also include the areas around the met rocket launch rail. Many times the areas overlap so the mid atoll will be closed for several days and the mission impact area will close just before the mission; however, the earliest closure time applies for the entire midatoll corridor,” Gibson added. The areas are closed for the safety of the community. The mission-caution boxes are areas where objects are planned to impact. “The mid-atoll area may be subject to impact so the good folks at KPD need to clear out that area before a mission. This means they must sweep the islands of the east reef and the west reef for people and place boats at the north and south ends of the mid-atoll area


Saturday, April 2, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglasssupport. Ike Richardson [KRS president] was on SAR [Search and Rescue] 001 as part of the initial survey and assessment team that included KPD [Kwajalein Police Department] and three re ghters,” Owens said. At 9:15 p.m. the re was reported to be out. “At the time of the EOC stand down, the re department noti ed the EOC members that they still had four to six hours of cleanup,” Owens said. Leverett said that the re department has operational planning set up for this type of situation. Davie said, “EOC does not have a ‘ re on Ebeye’ plan that can be pulled off the shelf; re station/KRS has an off-island re plan. We drew on the knowledge that re station/ KRS has residing in their contingency plan for situations like these.” The re department moved ef ciently into action, deploying six remen: Capt. Ken Riley, Capt. Mike Diehl, Patrick Grace, Scott Carney, Brad Obrocto and Mike Gabany. The department mustered at 7:15 p.m. Thursday and the last of the re ghters returned on island at approximately 7:30 a.m. Friday. “Upon arrival, major re ghting had been taken care of by heavy equipment operators on Ebeye. There were a few are-ups and they were contained easily,” Leverett said. He added, “The major efforts were in the area of salvage and overhaul. This was to ensure the control of areups or rekindling of the re. This area of operation was extensive. Due to the winds the potential of the embers jumping to an unburned area was great.” Even though responding to an emergency of this type is not a daily occurrence for the USAKA community, Davie said that the departments worked well together. Donations of clothes, household goods or money may be taken to the Island Memorial Chapel of ce, according to the Rev. Rick Funk, Protestant chaplain.Kwajalein Fire Department personnel assist Ebeye residents in ghting the re that raged Thursday. 7 FIRE from Page 3(Photos by Nell Drumheller)tance,” Mark Owens, KRS deputy site manager, said. He added that Host Nations was in touch with Marshallese government of cials to assess their needs and ensure everything that could be done was being done to help. USAKA and KRS assets weren’t requested until after the re had been burning for some time. “Due to quick response from the local and national police as well as KAJUR [Kwajalein Atoll Joint Utility Resources], the re was contained to an area approximately 100’ x 150’, bordered by the tennis court, National Telephone Authority, the road leading to the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government of ces and the main road circling Ebeye. All buildings in that area, save for one store, were burnt to the ground or collapsed to contain the re,” Alan Taylor, Republic of the Marshall Islands relations specialist, said. Taylor said that according to witnesses, the re started in a trailer at approximately 5:30 p.m. The trailer was consumed within 15 minutes. “I saw plumes of black smoke from North Point at approximately 6:30 [p.m.],” Taylor said. Residents of Ebeye reportedly assembled a bucket brigade to control and extinguish the ames on the south end of the island. Fire apparatus was still required and was dispatched from Kwajalein. At 8: 58 p.m., the re truck was on Ebeye and active and by 9:10 p.m., the re ghting was reportedly still underway. Meanwhile back on Kwajalein, the hospital was preparing to assist. “Personnel were put on alert to prepare for possible medical support, either on Kwajalein or mobilization to provide support on Ebeye,” explained Dr. Eric Lindborg, chief medical of cer. He contacted RMI medical personnel directly to convey readiness to assist medically in any manner required. Facilitating a joint-island and joint-country response takes coordination. “We were on the phone with the re department and other organizations to ensure that we had proper Capt. Mike Diehl was among was one of the Kwajalein re ghters responding to the Ebeye re.

A league nals Sunrise beat Podunkers in the best two out of three series, winning the rst two games.By Will O'Connell Sports WriterTwo Women’s B League softball teams played their second World Series game March 26. The Miss Demeanors defeated the Po Hos 20-6. The Po Hos started off in the game with two runs scored by Cindy Ehart, left eld and Nancy Grant, rst base in the top of the rst. Trailing them in the bottom, the Miss Demeanors gained four runs by First Base Teresa Fuchs, Sonya Sava, third base, Noel Bishop, left eld and Short Stop Joanna Buckman. Miss Demeanors held the lead for the remainder of the game. The Po Hos did not score in the next inning but played defensively when Miss Demeanors took the plate in the bottom of the second and Sava batted out a grand slam. In this inning Fuchs, Angie Dampier, pitcher, Sava, Bishop and Corey Morehead, second base all scored. In the third and fourth the Po Hos did not score. In the bottom of the third the Miss Demeanors scored three runs and failed to score in the fourth. In the top of the fth the Po Hos fought back with two runs scored again by Ehart and Grant. In the top of the sixth the Po Hos batted without any runs. In the next inning, the last for the Miss Demeanors, Dampier, Sava and Bishop scored. In the last attempt to turn the game around in the top of the seventh the Po Hos batted in two runs scored by Ehart and Joanne Garlind, left center. Unfortunately, the two runs scored by the Po Hos were not enough to continue the game. At the end of the game the winning teams Designated Hitter Dusty Varcak’s response to the overall enjoyment of the season this year was summed up in a three-letter word. “Fun.”
