Sp ecial kudos go to Kate Lollar who heads up the Yokwe Yuk Women Club’s Bargain Bazaar and her helpers that day Alex Lollar, Michael Taylor and Chris Berlind. They worked extra-long hours collecting the two step vans full of donations people pulled together for the cause and then hauled it down to the religious education building. Rick Funk was able to add all the donations already brought to A recent article in the Hourglass about an air conditioning failure at the Coral Bachelor Quarters brought to light many interesting subjects. But as always there is the rest of the story. The technicians within the Logistics Public Works department work hard to maintain all facilities and the equipment within them. The Kwajalein Operations group does not have a second shift or extra people standing by just to handle emergencies. The folks who respond to problems during the night or on weekends are the same hard-working individuals who work a regular shift during the day. On Kwajalein alone there are over 1,500 separate air conditioning systems. This does not count the outer islands or the commercial refrigeration systems in food service and retail facilities. This small 13-man shop maintains all of the equipment 24/7. Each of the BQs has been renovated within the last 10 years (with the exception of the PBQ). Almost every BQ has a different air condition manufacturer, requiring its own speci c parts and each is uniquely different. One part does not t all systems. Each system has its own wiring and piping scheme almost totally different from all the others. None of the BQs has a redundant air conditioning system installed. When one part of the complex system goes down it will affect the whole building. The technicians do their best to accomplish repairs as quickly and ef ciently as possible. In this particular case, there were multiple failures of unrelated parts that prevented the system from running. Each time the technicians troubleshot the failed part they believed relief was just a short period away. Providing an accurate assessment of when repairs would be completed was impossible. Piping systems had to be modi ed to install a new chill-water pump, parts from around the island had to be located, which required searching through many supply warehouses to nd parts that could be modi ed to make work. Bottom line here is all of the Logistics Public Works folks work diligently to provide services and utilities for the island to use and enjoy. Yes it is their job, and they work as quickly and ef ciently sometimes under very trying conditions. In the future when a problem occurs in your residence or quarters please be patient while repairs are being conducted and thank them for their quick service rather than complain about how long it took. — Fred McNickle Manager Public Works — Ed Black Deputy Manager Public Works the Religious Education Building. All the donations were sorted by folks who were good enough to show up with not a lot of notice or were lucky enough to be home when the phone rang. The fire and the aid from the Kwajalein community have gotten good publicity of late, but somehow the work of Kate and her crew has been inadvertently edited from view. Theirs and everyone’s time and effort is hugely appreciated.— Sue RosoffFinding my very own 'back forty'See FARMER, Page 7 The letter to the editor about the turtle pond cleaning in the April 13 issue was written by Joel Madore.

The Hourglass regrets the error.CorrectionPublic Works strives to meet community needsBy Ralph “Bubba” Reaves Gentleman farmer In my part of the country, a man’s ranch is reckoned by the number of sections he owns and/or leases from the Bureau of Land Management. Therefore, back forty refers to 40 sections (40 square miles), probably behind some mesa or mountain. In the east, where the family farm ranges from 180 to 320 acres, back forty means 40 acres beyond some creek or patch of woods. Today, here on Kwaj, it is the 40 square feet I tend behind the Reef Bachelor Quarters. It’s not much, but it’s mine. Well, it’s not really mine, it belongs to USAKA, but I guess it’s as much


3 3 See CANCER, Page 7Sunshine can be your skin’s enemyDeath rays(Photo by Elizabeth Davie)By Nell M. Drumheller EditorPeople who live in areas where sunlight is intense, such as the tropics, and have fair skin that burns easily or who have had severe, blistering sunburn in their lives, have a much higher risk for developing skin cancers. However, fair-skinned persons aren’t the only people at risk for skin cancer. Skin cancer is a disease that begins in any of the layers of the skin. There are three types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. The skin protects the rest of the body from the outside elements, stores water and fat and produces Vitamin D. The skin has three layers: the outer layer – the epidermis, the middle layer-the dermis, and an underlying layer of fatty connective tissue. “Skin damage and skin cancer is a classic case where prevention is far better than curing an already established problem. Avoid the sun when possible. Put on maximally effective waterproof sunscreen regularly. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses when out in the sun. Don’t try to get a tan. Check your skin regularly for changes in the appearance of moles and for new moles. Have a low threshold for scheduling a doctor appointment to check possible skin problems,” said Dr. Eric Lindborg, Kwajalein Hospital chief medical officer. How is it detected? Non-melanoma skin cancers can normally be found early. The most common warning sign is a change on the skin, especially a new growth or sore that doesn’t heal. Any abnormal area of the skin that does not go away should be reported to your doctor without undue delay. Many things that are not cancer can also cause abnormal growths or sores. It is still important to have these areas examined by a doctor so that the actual cause can be determined. Diagnostic tests Skin biopsy – The only way to positively identify a skin cancer is for a doctor to take a biopsy. A biopsy is a small tissue sample that is taken and sent to a laboratory to be examined under a microscope. The entire lesion or mole is usually removed and sent to the lab if it is suspected of being cancerous. This can usually be done in the doctor’s office with a local anesthetic and is normally painless. Fine needle aspiration – This is done when a doctor suspects the cancer may have spread to the lymph nodes. A needle is used to draw fluid and cells from nearby lymph nodes. Surgical lymph node biopsy – If after the initial skin biopsy a doctor suspects that the cancer may have spread, a surgeon may remove some of the surrounding lymph nodes and send them to a laboratory. This is done to determine if the cancer has spread to the lymphatic system. Is it curable? If found and treated early, almost all non-melanoma skin cancers are curable. Unfortunately, some are not detected or treated until they have developed into more serious stages. Few people die of basal cell carcinomas, but squamous cell carcinoma of the skin is more deadly.

Saturday, April 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Turtle pond undergoes intense cleanup By Mig Owens Assistant EditorSpring cleaning took on a whole new meaning recently as 10 years worth of sludge was cleaned from the turtle pond over a span of two days. The project was a collaborative effort led by Kwajalein Range Services’ Environmental department, involving personnel from the Liquid Systems and Solid Waste departments, the Kwajalein Fire Department and San Juan Construction. Work began March 30 with the pumping of the pond’s water, during which time its seven resident sea turtles were removed by the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School marine biology class and other volunteers and placed in a portable water tank. Fish residing in the pond were caught and released into the lagoon, according to Ken Sims, United States Army Kwajalein Atoll Environmental Management Of ce chief. In response to resident concerns, Cathy Madore, project Environmental lead for the turtle pond cleanup, explained that while the turtles were in the enclosure, they were kept cool, shaded and protected. “They were well cared for even if they weren’t kept sprayed the entire time,” Madore explained. “One of the reasons they were not continuously sprayed was that drinking large amounts of fresh water can damage their kidneys.” While out of the pond, six second graders helped clean the turtles’ shells. Sonya Sava, second-grade teacher, said she thought this was an unusual opportunity to let the students experience the turtles up close. “At this age, the students are really enthusiastic about anything involving animals. Just by being there the students learned a few turtle facts such as how to determine if the turtle is male or female by the length of the tail,” Sava said. “I also thought this would be a great opportunity for the students to donate some of their time to help out with something important to everyone in the community.” Cleaning of the pond continued the second day with removal of sludge into receptacles, after which the pond was pressure washed. “In some places, waste in the pond was almost a foot thick and inundated with marine parasites, which were affecting the turtles’ overall health; one of the reasons for cleaning it out,” Madore said. Blood tests showed some turtles were ghting infection, Madore said, as well as high cholesterol, which she attributes to the turtles being fed hot dogs instead of nutritious, stable food. Today, the turtles are considered to be in “good” condition, she said, and have grown and gained weight. They are now being fed pelletized turtle food, a standard for sea turtles and approved by a veterinarian. The turtles also receive vitamins and calcium twice a week, placed inside their favorite treat – squid, according to Madore. She explained that because the hawksbill is a carnivore, it is fed boney sh along with squid, which would be its diet in the wild. “Healthy, happy turtles have healthy, happy babies,” said Madore. In that vein, modi cations were made during the project to the ramp that leads to the turtle’s nesting area in order to adjust the incline and widen it. The changes were made based on data provided by the Sea Life Park in Hawaii, which has nesting success coordinators hope to emulate. According to Madore, the clean up created a “nice ecosystem and breeding ground for the turtles and giant clams.” She added that the project was completed on schedule, accident free and according to plan. Giant clam breeding, as well as elimination of the smell caused by the sediment, were also catalysts for the pond clean-up project. Clams previously placed in the pond had been removed because they were getting buried in the sludge, and because sh, such as sharks, trigger sh and Trevally, preyed on the clams. Those same sh competed for food with the turtles, especially for the squid being provided to the hawksbill, Madore said. Plans are to reintroduce the giant clam babies back into the pond, she explained. In addition, new sh have been introduced by Eric Nelson, marine biology teacher, and his class as part of their research on arti cial bio-reefs. They include six butter y sh (two Red Fin Butter y, two Chevroned Butter y and two Four Spot Butter y), three Sail n Tangs, one Moorish Idol and one Orange Spine Unicorn Fish. “Any other addition to the pond is strictly prohibited as well as food that is not approved by the Environmental department,” Madore said. “Anything added could throw the whole thing off kilter.” Madore said that the community needs to be aware that students from the marine biology class periodically will spend time working at the pond, and may or may not be supervised. At that time, the students will post a sign indicating they are approved to be there and will wear logoed T-shirts. Acknowledging that the turtles have been here for 30 years, Madore said the pond rules are not designed to discourage the community from being involved or expressing concern over the turtles’ care. “Residents can contribute time and assistance by helping the pond remain free of debris, discouraging people from putting things in the pond that don’t belong there, and giving us feedback on activities going on there,” Madore said. She suggests that people can assist with cleanup of the area around the pond and be ready to volunteer if they see Environmental department personnel working there. “Anyone is welcomed to help feed the turtles during feeding times, Tuesday through Saturday at 9 a.m.,” said Sims. He added that he would like for the public’s support of the efforts to care for the turtles and asked that residents who wish to formally volunteer their time contact him at 58889.


Saturday, April 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 By Mig Owens Assistant EditorSoon to be reintroduced to the wild are three or four turtles who currently call the turtle pond home. The decision comes at the at the recommendation of various agencies, as well as that of the veterinarian, who has conducted health checks on the turtles over the past two years. The date for the release is yet to be determined, as is the location and number of turtles to be released. They may include two male and one female green sea turtles and the male hawksbill. “Coordination with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service and the Republic of the Marshall Islands Environmental Protection Authority has yielded a recommendation for the release of two to four of the turtles back into the wild,” Ken Sims, United States Army Kwajalein Atoll Environmental Management Office chief, said. He added that the decision was not made lightly because there remain concerns about the survivability of the turtles in a cultural setting where turtles are hunted and consumed for food. The RMI government plans a campaign to spread the word that if the turtles, identi ed by the metal tags on their ippers and/or non-toxic markings on their shell, are captured that they be released back into the wild, as according to Cathy Madore, project Environmental lead, “they are not t for human consumption.” Sims said that the release bene ts are threefold. “It’s the right thing to do based on the evidence. They do well and adapt quickly, though they are susceptible to predators, both man and natural,” he explained, adding that concerns are “more our fear for them than their fear. “I equate it to being imprisoned or enslaved – the one thing that’s cherished most is freedom,” Sims said. “This is an opportunity to have freedom and maybe a little fun. It also helps propagate the species.” The move will help with the water quality in the pond Several turtles to be released soon Three or four turtles may be released from the turtle pond to the ocean. (Photo by Cathy Madore)and to balance the ratio of males to females. Several turtles will remain in the pond for “educational purposes and for the enjoyment of the peoples of Kwajalein,” said Dr. Robert Morris, veterinarian. “The sex ratio was skewed towards more males than females. The turtles have matured over the years and the aggressive behavior of the males during the breeding season has also increased,” Morris said. “Severe damage was noted on one of the females. Her tail has been completely chewed off. Other turtles were also noted to have bite wounds.” The release will streamline feeding operations, according to Sims, as the hawksbill requires a unique diet. Release of the turtles is planned in areas where other turtles are known to exist, though “away from Kwajalein and other largely inhabited islands in the atoll to further ensure success in the wild,” Madore said. The use of transmitters to track the turtles’ movements is a possibility, said Sims, and is dependant on funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and/or the RMI government. The transmitters are glued to the shells and satellites can receive their signal when the turtle comes up for air. “I recommended that the released turtles have transmitters attached to follow their movements,” Morris stated. “This would be quite educational…and might stimulate interest in conservation and biology of sea turtles…very little research has been done on turtles around Kwajalein.” Such transmitters are currently used on turtles released from Sea Life Park in Hawaii. Data from a transmitter as of April 7 indicates that a three-yearold, 140-pound zoo-raised turtle released in October is headed toward the Marshall Islands. “…USAKA only serves as the caretaker for the turtles with oversight from the FWS as long as the turtles are in the pond,” Sims said. “Should a turtle be released, the oversight responsibility transfers from the FWS to the NMFS because the turtle is back in the ocean. Either way, the turtles still belong to the RMI and we must respect their wishes for this resource.”


Saturday, April 16, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass Couples ready to dance night awayFootloose Eric and Cathy Brock practice their dance steps to the rumba. (Photo by Mig Owens) 6By Mig Owens Assistant EditorFor many would-be ballroom dancers, learning to cut a rug has not come easy. The annual Ballroom Dinner Dance, April 24 in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room, serves as a chance for couples to demonstrate to others, as well as to themselves, that hard work pays off. Instructors and event organizers, Dick and Cheryl Shields, started taking lessons on Kwajalein about seven years ago. When their dance teacher left the island, they said they decided to become instructors themselves, for fear that otherwise, “it wouldn’t happen at all,” Dick said. This is the third year the couple has shared their knowledge and love of dance in the form of rumba, waltz, cha-cha, swing, salsa and foxtrot lessons. “Dancing is fun and something that you really have to work at together, which is great,” Cheryl said. “I imagine almost everyone has seen a couple dancing and really enjoying it and wished they could do that also.” For Kevin Hartnett and Lynn Booth, the opportunity to do something together is what interested them most. They say that dancing brings them close and is enjoyable once each begins to get comfortable with the steps, and with one another. “It’s intimate, it’s elegant, above all it’s fun to do with someone else who also enjoys it,” Kevin said. “I think it’s beautiful to watch as well, but it is most fun to actually do the dances. Lynn and I have been going to the ballroom dance classes regularly now for about three years and I think we have gotten over any nervousness we had at the beginning.” Randy Razook started dancing shortly after his arrival on Kwajalein six years ago. As a ‘bachelor’ for the rst six months while his wife stayed behind in Texas, he learned that the ballroom dance instructor at the time could go so far as to nd him a partner. “I signed up for her course and six months later, I found I could do the basic dance steps without falling at on my face,” he said. “When my wife came out and we went to our rst dance, she was duly impressed, which made it all worthwhile.” Nicole and Andrew Beall took one year of ballroom dancing four years ago in the states. They said they took it up again because they really enjoy dancing together. “We nd that we spend a great deal of time laughing as we attempt to master some of the more dif cult steps. Since most of the steps are dif cult when you have two people trying to lead, you can imagine that there is a lot of laughing,” Nicole said. Dick explained that for beginners, the rst attempts at dancing can be pretty frustrating and intimidating. But, as in anything else, practice makes perfect. Wil Pierre-Mike, who has been dancing with his wife, Evelyne, for about two years, said, “It becomes enjoyable once both persons are able to move in harmony. The rst few sessions, learning new steps, are de nitely challenging for a beginner, but if you already know a previous dance, learning new ones gets a lot eaiser…all it takes is practice.” Razook’s advice to novice dancers is not to be afraid because, “It is a lot of fun and a good workout at the same time. It’s something you can do with your spouse in public that is totally legal.” While the focus of the annual dinner/dance event is on ballroom dancing, Dick explained that the evening isn’t just for dancers. “For people who don’t dance, it’s still a great evening to listen to plenty of good jazz and enjoy a relaxing, delicious meal,” he said. Also known as “The Central Paci c’s Most Dangerous Band,” the high school stage band will carry on a 17-year tradition by providing music for the annual dance. The band has been rehearsing twice a week since August to learn from thirty to forty songs, all in the ballroom dance styles. Dick said that the goal of the event is to spotlight the stage band and to “have a fun evening for the musicians and the dancers. “The fund-raising is incidental,” he said. “Any proceeds after the meals are paid for goes into the band activity fund, and is used primarily to purchase new sheet music for the following year’s dance.” The ballroom dances are special to Razook because he explained that they offer fun and fellowship. “You know you can dance with anyone and they won’t make fun of your two left feet. Most people are willing to put up with a few sore toes as long as you are willing to learn.”

For most of our married life, Jeanette and I have lived in a small, rural community on the outskirts of Albuquerque, N.M.

Because of the mini-farm and FARMER, from Page 2 Kwaj, you make do with what you have. I wanted a pick-up truck. I needed a pick up truck. I got a pick-up truck.

Now all I need is a license plate that says New Mexico Farm Vehicle, and a gun rack behind my seat. CANCER, from Page 3 people in the U.S. die every year from squamous cell cancer. Skin cancers of all varieties must be treated with considerable skill and care. Regular skin cancer screenings by you and by a doctor can ensure that any skin cancers will be found and treated early enough to completely cure them. This type of cancer is curable, but only if it is detected and treated early. Therefore, it is very important to have complete skin exams and to report any suspicious moles to your doctor. It’s easier to prevent cancer than to cure it… Certain lifestyle habits can greatly reduce your risk of developing non-melanoma skin cancer. Ninety percent of skin cancers are a result of sun or Ultraviolet light exposure. Particularly avoid the sun during its strongest times, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Be especially careful if you are fair skinned or burn easily. Cover up – Wear a hat and long sleeves if possible when you are going to be exposed to the sun and sunglasses when you are in the sun. Take special care of children – Most skin cancers are the result of severe sunburns during childhood. Use sunscreen or sunblock – Use at least sun protection factor 15 anytime you are in the sun. Preferably, sunscreen should be waterproof and applied 15-30 minutes before sun exposure. It should be reapplied every 90 minutes or more often if you are in the water. Have a complete skin exam every year – especially if you are over 30 years old and work/recreation puts you out in the sun for long periods of time. Don’t smoke.How to do a skin self-exam You can improve your chances of finding skin cancer promptly by performing a simple skin self-exam regularly. The best time to do this self-exam is after a shower or bath. You should check your skin in a well-lighted room using a full-length mirror and a hand-held mirror. It’s best to begin by learning where your birthmarks, moles and blemishes are and what they usually look like. Check for anything new – a change in the size, texture or color of a mole, or a sore that does not heal. Check all areas, including the back, the scalp, between the buttocks and the genital area. Look at the front and back of your body in the mirror, then raise your arms and look at the left and right sides. Bend your elbows and look carefully at your palms; forearms, including the undersides; and the upper arms. Examine the back and front of your legs. Also look between your buttocks and around your genital area.Sit and closely examine your feet, including the soles and the spaces between the toes. Look at your face, neck and scalp. You may want to use a comb or a blow dryer to move hair so that you can see better. By checking your skin regularly, you will become familiar with what is normal. If you find anything unusual, see your doctor right away. Remember, the earlier skin cancer is found, the better the chance for cure. Skin cancer has a better prognosis than most other types of cancer. Although skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in this country, it accounts for much less than one percent of all cancer deaths. It is cured in 85 to 95 percent of all cases. Still, any diagnosis of cancer can be frightening, and it’s natural to have concerns about medical tests, treatments and doctors’ bills. Patients have many important questions to ask about cancer, and their doctor is the best person to provide answers. Most people want to know exactly what kind of cancer they have, how it can be treated and how successful the treatment is likely to be. The following are some other questions that patients might want to ask their doctor. What types of treatment are available? Are there any risks or side effects of treatment? Will there be a scar? Will I have to change my normal activities? How can I protect myself from getting skin cancer again? How often will I need a checkup? Some patients become concerned that treatment may change their appearance, especially if the skin cancer is on their face. Patients should discuss this important concern with their doctor. And they may want to have a second opinion before treatment.

Murray plays Steve Zissou, an eccentric and renowned oceanographer who has decided to seek out and enact mortal revenge on a shark that ate one of the men on his team. Along for the ride is Ned Plimpton (Owen Wilson), a young man who has joined Zissou’s crew after showing up claiming to be the seaman’s long-lost son and Zissou’s co-producer (and estranged wife), Eleanor Angelica Huston. As the expedition ensues, the two bond and Plimpton falls for a female journalist (Cate Blanchett) who is writing a piece on Zissou.
