Bush PresidentDuring Asian/Paci c American Heritage Month, we honor the accomplishments of Asian/Paci c Americans and the many ways they have enriched our society and shaped the character of our Nation through their diverse languages, cultures and religious beliefs. Today, Asian/Paci c Americans are leaders in public service, business, government, science, law, education, athletics, the arts and President acknowledges Asian/ Paci c Americans' contributionsmany other areas. Their love of family, community and hard work has helped to uphold our Nation for many generations. Asian/Paci c American entrepreneurs are helping to strengthen our economy and our communities through their hard work and ingenuity, and they inspire a new generation of American innovation through their example. Throughout our history, Asian/ Paci c Americans have been patriots, answering the call to defend our Nation and to protect the blessings of liberty and democracy. Today, in the war on terror, Asian/Paci c Americans serve proudly as they carry on our NationÂ’s noble tradition of advancing the cause of freedom around the world. We are grateful for the sacri ce of our men and women in uniform and those who love and support them as we ght to protect our homeland and make the world safe for democracy. Today, the more than 13 million Americans of Asian or Paci c Island heritage contribute to the vitality, success and prosperity of our nation. "It tested all I've learned in school up to this point."

Wednesday, May 11, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3By Mig Owens Assistant EditorSwimmers Ian Taylor, Michael Taylor and Jared Heine are bound for Montreal for the experience of a lifetime. From July 16 to 31, the three will represent the Republic of the Marshall Islands in the XI FINA World Championships. Because the RMI does not have a competitive swimming program, Kwajalein swimmers represent the Marshalls at many international competitions and have been participating in the Micronesian Games since 1990. Federation Internationale de Natation, the international organization that regulates swimming, sponsored two RMI swimmers to compete in the World Championships in Fukuoka, Japan in 2001. Three swimmers representing the RMI Kwajalein swimmers head to Canada were then sponsored to participate at the next World Championships, held in Barcelona, Spain in 2003. Because of this past participation, swimmers are invited to go to Montreal for the XI FINA World Championships. “Participation in the event is intended to promote swimming in the RMI and elevate the standards of our swimmers,” explained Cris Lindborg, acting secretary for the Marshall Islands Swimming Federation. “We do not expect to medal at this event. The competition is the highest level of swimming in the world, the ‘olympics’ of swimming. Our kids will compete with the likes of Ian Thorpe, Michael Phelps, Alexander Popov…the fastest swimmers in the world.” Selection criteria for the competition began with native Marshallese swimmers, followed by those who meet the criteria for speed, experience, availability and residency in the RMI. Sarah Stepchew will serve as coach for the World Championship swimmers. Twenty-two-year-old Heine earned ve gold medals at the Micronesian Games in 2002, held in Pohnpei. Born and raised on Kwajalein, the Taylor brothers have been swimming since they were ve or six years old and both are members of the Kwajalein Swim Team. Ian, 18, also competed in the Micronesian Games in 2002, where his relay team took home two bronze and one silver medal. That experience prompted him to want to compete again. “This time we’re up against the U.S. and larger nations. We’re trying to break the RMI into the Olympics and spark interest in swimming,” he said. “It’s nice to go with my brother, Mike, and will be a great experience swimming with world-class swimmers. It’s a dream to go there and see idols and swim in the same pool with them… World championships See SWIM, Page 6By Nell M. Drumheller EditorOne hundred Marshallese vendors are expected at Farmer’s Market and Trade Fair on Monday.The event will begin with an opening ceremony at 9: 30 a.m. with the booths open for business from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.Vendors will be selling everything from tuna to produce to handicrafts to Tshirts and coconut products. “I also expect some tourismoriented booths and some informational demonstrations. I know that there will be a display involving running diesel engines on coconut oil,” said Maj. David Coffey, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nations chief. In the U.S., a traditional Farmer’s Market displays locally grown produce. Coffey said that at the last Farmer’s Market, in April 2003, “they [the Marshallese] brought a 20 foot container of cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, corn, Chinese radishes and a few other things and they all sold out in about an hour. This time they planted things two months ago speci cally for sale at the fair, but I have not been told what they are. I hope to see cantaloupe and watermelons.” Coffey urges people to come out to the show, not only to buy products not necessarily available on Kwajalein, but also for the cultural exchange. “People are missing some of the intent of this event if they don’t take the opportunity to get to know the participants. Most of these people will not make any money once transportation costs and other expenses are counted up. Their motivation is more for the cross-cultural aspects of the fair than the business itself. I hope for a large turnout because these vendors are very interested in seeing how we live and in getting to know us. For some of the farmers coming from outer islands, this is a once-in-alifetime opportunity and a huge deal,” he said. Coffey said that this event will provide a break from the ordinary. “It gives us a chance to enjoy foods and products not normally available here. The last trade show resulted in the RMI bottled water, black pearls, coconut soaps and other local products becoming available in our stores. It gives the community a chance to let the contractor know what RMI products they are interested in. It gives KRS [Kwajalein Range Services] an opportunity to engage the vendors directly. Some of the booths will be informational in nature to help educate the community about products and services such as tourism opportunities available in the Marshall Islands. And it gives people in this community a See MARKET, Page 6Marshallese market brings trade goods to Kwajalein Jared Heine Ian and Michael Taylor


Wednesday, May 11, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Nell M. Drumheller EditorAsian Paci c heritage was celebrated Monday with outrigger canoe rides, food samplings, craft displays and an exhibition by the Marshallese Jobwa Stick Dancers. “The Asian Paci c Heritage Month and related activities are celebrated throughout the Army, but I think they have special signi cance to those of us living in the paci c,” said Maj. David Coffey, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nations chief. “We are fortunate to have local area experts to help educate us and share their culture with us. It is important to be aware of local cultures and I believe the exposure is one of the main bene ts of working for the Army,” he added. Exhibits and representatives from Republic of the Marshall Islands, Japan, Republic of China, Republic of the Philippines, Hawaii, Republic of Korea and Australia participated in the event. Marshallese royalty, Seagull and Kili Kabua James, sister and nephew of the paramount chief, were here to represent the tradi-tional leaders of the Sunset Chain of islands. “They provided the outrigger canoes, and without their permission the Jobwa Stick Dance cannot be performed,” Coffey said. The Jobwa Stick Dancers accepted donations throughout the day to help fund a trip to Japan in July where they will perform at a World Expo. According to Coffey, “The turn out was fantastic and it makes me very proud to be part of a community that is so culturally conscious. I know there were many other activities going on this past weekend and that we all have plenty to do, and yet we had to turn people away from the outrigger canoe rides and the gymnasium was sitting room only.” The “Asian/Paci c American” CelebratinMonday event highlights Americans from across Pacific introduce their cultures to Kwajalein


Wednesday, May 11, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 g diversityAsian Pacific Heritage designation encompasses more than 50 ethnic or language groups including native Hawaiians and other Paci c Islanders. There are now more Asian and Paci c Islander groups than in the past with 28 Asian and 19 Paci c Island subgroups representing a vast array of languages and cultures. These groups include Chinese Americans, Filipino Americans, Japanese Americans, Korean Americans, Vietnamese Americans, Asian Indian Americans, Laotian Americans, Cambodian Americans, Hmong Americans, Thai Americans, Pakistani, Samoan, Guamanian and many other language groups. “Native Hawaiian and Other Paci c Islander” refers to people having origins in any of the original peoples of Hawaii, Guam, Samoa or other Paci c islands. It includes people who indicated their race or races as “Native Hawaiian,” “Guamanian or Chamorro,” “Samoan,” or “other Paci c Islander,” or wrote in entries such as Tahitian, Mariana Islander, or Chuukese. “Some other race” was included in Census 2000 for respondents who were unable to identify with the ve Of ce of Management and Budget race categories. Many Asians and Paci c Islanders have ancestry in a number of different cultures.

Wednesday, May 11, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6By Mig Owens Assistant EditorBecause of a delayed shipment from Mobil Oil last week, Ebeye’s only power generation plant, Kwajalein Atoll Joint Utility Regulation, did not receive oil needed to maintain the island’s power. In response to the situation, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nation representatives Thursday located two drums of oil no longer used on the installation, which was then sold and transported to the neighboring island to avert an outage. According to Maj. David Coffey, Host Nation chief, the help offered resulted in a win-win situation and was not what he considers extraordinary. “Businesses on Ebeye have always been able to come here and buy critical items that are not available on Ebeye,” he said. “There is already a process in place and that is how the transaction occurred so fast. KAJUR paid the full price to include KRS load factors and the reality is that we don’t even use this oil any-USAKA continues to lend hand to Ebeye power generation plant more and we probably would have paid hundreds of dollars to dispose of this oil as hazardous waste in the near future.” The plant accepted assistance from USAKA many times in the past, according to Coffey, up to and including providing them with technical experts and expensive diagnostic equipment. “We excessed them an entire machine shop of tools so they could manufa cture their own parts. We regularly help them procure oil filters and spare parts. We have excessed and leased them smaller backup generators several times in the past. We transported main generators from Australia to Ebeye for free when they had a catastrophic failure at their power plant a couple of yeas ago,” he explained. Coffey said that recent soaring fuel prices have compounded Ebeye’s power generation problems. “They have a modern, efficient power plant, but the price of fuel has risen so fast that money that had been earmarked for parts and maintenance has been sucked up by fuel purchases,” Coffey said. “This translates into fewer quali ed maintenance personnel, less parts stockage, longer periods between scheduled maintenance, etc.” When fuel prices started to skyrocket, the Host Nation of ce foresaw such problems, taking the concern all the way up to the Department of the Army to get permission to sell fuel to Ebeye, offering them an alternative to buying from Mobil Oil. “DA could not nd a legal way for us to do this so Ebeye continues to have problems and USAKA missed the opportunity for signi cant income to our Recreational Fund,” Coffey said. Coffey said that ongoing problems with restructuring, funding, lease agreements and staf ng may lead to intermittent outages on Ebeye for the immediate future. Though KA JUR is the only power plant on Ebeye, there are backup generators at the critical nodes such as the hospital, cold food storage, and the telecommunications, sewage and water plants. shake their hands.” He added that, surprisingly, here on Kwajalein swimmers have more opportunity than in the states to compete at this level, provided that they live here at least seven years, and are therefore eligible to represent the RMI. The XI FINA World Championships is sixteen-yearold Michael’s rst opportunity to do just that. “I’m kind of excited and really scared,” he said. “But I’m looking forward to the experience of a world-class competition.” Michael will be swimming the 50 and 100-meter freestyle, as well as races to be determined as the competition draws nearer. Preparations for the event began when the brothers attended a swim-stroke clinic Sunday. Michael said earlymorning practices will soon begin, which are expected to become more intense after school is out. “This is an amazing experience, to be in the same pool with the best swimmers in the world. To watch world records being broken, is one of the most inspiring experiences for young and old alike,” Lindborg said. “It also encourages our kids to take the sport more seriously and it provides the opportunity for native Marshallese swimmers to get involved in the sport.” For more information on the XI FINA World Championships, visit eng/index.cfm.SWIM, from Page 3 MARKET, from Page 3 chance to interact with the Majuro community,” he said.“There will also be a silent auction of the best handicrafts and other goods and services at the fair itself. The proceeds from the auction will be used to offset transportation for the vendors,” Coffey said. Coffey said that this fair is much bigger than the last one in terms of amount of products and geographical dispersion. Coffey advises consumers to attend the opening ceremony where COL Beverly Stipe, USAKA commander and Ambassador Greta Morris will speak. He said that the shopping will begin immediately after the opening ceremony and “the best items will go the fastest. Although the fair officially runs until 2 p.m., most things sold out in one hour at the last fair,” Coffey said.At 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, the Host Nations Of ce is sponsoring a potluck dinner at Emon Beach Pavilion 1 to welcome the vendors, and according to Coffey, “give this community a chance to get to know them.”People should plan to be at the opening ceremony to hear the commander and Ambassador Morris speak, but also because the sale of goods will commence immediately after the ceremony ends.
