The Ebeye students have bene ted a lot from the nutritious meals. The lunch program has really helped Ebeye parents and students, especially those parents who live on Ebeye and do not have access to Kwajalein. In the past, some students would bring their own canned food lunches, which is not nutritious, or they would eat at the Snack Bar, which can take its toll on the parents' budget or not have lunch at all. Again, kommol tata to all those who have contributed to the lunch program. — Diane LemariI recently saw two articles on the Internet that got my attention. There was a report that senators in the nation’s capitol are secretly reviewing suggestions that the full retirement age be raised to 70 and Social Security bene ts be cut for future recipients. Supposedly, my wife and I are in that fortunate group (born before 1950) that will not see any changes. Yeah, right.Now let me ask you something. Let’s say the age is raised to 70. Who in the world thinks companies are going to keep people employed until they’re 70 years old when 50 is considered old in the business world today. I’m sure CEOs would love to see the health care costs of a bunch of 70 year olds. When these kind-hearted businessmen decide to slash and burn overhead, where pray tell do you think they would start? I wonder what’s going to happen when we have millions of laid-off, homeless 69 year olds living on the streets with no health insurance. Yeah, that ought to save the government and the taxpayers some money. CNN reported that three elderly men called the “Grandpa Gang,” were arrested for bank robbery in Germany. One of them, a 73 year old, said fear of being old and having no money for a nursing home drove him to commit the crimes. And they say the elderly have no initiative. Although this took place in a foreign country, it hit home with me. How many of us have that same fear of being old and not having money for good medical insurance? Social Security is a big concern, but the more pressing problem is health care. One of the main reasons companies don’t want to keep older workers on the payroll is the cost of health insurance. Even now, companies are telling retirees that their healthcare and pensions will no longer be funded. If the folks in Washington, D.C. want to x something, they should x the out-of-control healthcare system. It’s costing America jobs and our competitive edge in the world. It’s also costing elderly people everything they have. My mother has been very ill and my two brothers and I looked into assisted living or a nursing home for her. The cost for such a place is staggeringly Ebeye guest programsays thanks for lunch


Wednesday, June 15, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3See TRAVEL, Page 6 Continental, airport of cials answerquestions about travel challenges By Mig Owens Assistant editorSchool’s out and summer travel is in full swing for Kwajalein residents, making it a busy time of the year for Continental Ticket Of ce and airport personnel. We spoke with Nancy Opiniano, Continental Ticket Of ce manager and Donna Groth, terminal supervisor, about what travelers can do to make getting off the ‘rock’ smooth sailing this time of year.Who are you wanting to reach with this interview? Summer travelers? Opiniano: Certainly summer vacation travelers will want to read through these questions and answers, although all the questions and answers are applicable to everyone who travels in and out of Kwajalein… Kwajalein is unique due to the "Island Hopper" ight schedule which originates in Guam with stops in Chuuk, Pohnpei and Kosrae prior to its arrival on Kwajalein and on to Majuro and Honolulu. The ight operates three times weekly and this summer we will increase service to include a Saturday ight from July 2 to Sept. 3.What type of advance travel preparation should a traveler make?Opiniano: It’s best to purchase your airline ticket as soon as your travel plans are rmed up. To ensure you receive OnePass mileage credit, OnePass members should provide their frequent yer number when making their reservations. This is also a good time to request seat assignments. Usually we’re able to assign seats up to 90 days in advance of the travel date. (Editor’s note: Once KRS employees have an approved travel request and itinerary, they need to take it to the KRS Travel of ce to begin the travel order process.)What action must people take say one month before they week...and then the day of travel. Opiniano: 1. Tickets Dependent on the fare purchased, the ticket time limit for purchasing the ticket is very important. Reservations that have not been purchased by the ticket time limit are automatically cancelled by the airline’s reservation system. There are many different types of fares a customer can purchase and it is important to understand the advance purchase requirements, change fees and cancellations fees applicable to the fare the customer purchases. Today, many airlines have non-refundable tickets; in some cases that can mean the customer can change an outbound travel date for a fee. Again, it all is based on the fare type you purchase. The rules differ fare by fare — and yes, that is challenging even for a seasoned travel specialist. 2. Verify expiration dates of travel documents such as passports, especially for international travel. You can verify visa and other entry requirements with the respective country’s consulate or Web site. 3. Ensure your travel orders are in hand. 4. Provide your OnePass number when you make your reservation. 5. Be sure that hotel and car reservations are con rmed in advance of your departure. 6. Request seat assignments when you make your airline reservations. 7. It is recommended on Kwajalein that you recon rm your air travel, if possible, 72 hours before departure. If there are any issues that are identi ed at that time, we can address them before the customer departs. 8. Check on the Kwajalein Roller, newspaper, or call 53589 for ight check-in times or status of ight departures in and out of Kwajalein.On the day of a resident’s departure, what steps do they need to take?Groth: Make sure you have appropriate travel documents prior to traveling and then bring them, along with checked baggage to the terminal for check-in. I would advise coming at the beginning of check-in instead of toward the end. If the ight is oversold, and a passenger doesn’t have a pre-assigned seat, there’s a chance that a passenger may be bumped. We clear the standby list by rst come, rst served. If something does go wrong before the travel begins, to whom should they turn? Opiniano: If time permits, call the local travel of ce, and if a problem occurs during check-in, it is important for you to communicate with the airport personnel. Generally the airport personnel can help to resolve the issue. If the agents at the Kwajalein airport are unable to help you; they will contact the Kwajalein travel


Wednesday, June 15, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Kwajalein pitcher Alfreda Ching and rst baseman Angela Corder team up for a play at rst as Majuro runner Athelta Slinger tries to beat the throw. (Photos by Mig Owens)Goodwill softball tournament pits Majuro women's team against Kwaj By Mig Owens Assistant editorFor the rst time in what may be 10 years, a champion women’s softball team from Majuro traveled to Kwajalein for a tournament to “strengthen ties between the two communities, as well as with Ebeye,” Charles Paul, head coach of the Majuro Roughriders, said. The Majuro team swept the threeday tournament against Kwajalein’s Scrubs, held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with scores of 25-5, 11-7 and 4-1. Called the Kwajalein/Majuro Softball Challenge, the tournament was initiated by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Sports and Recreation Division, which is part of the Republic of the Marshall Islands national government, in conjunction with a request by Torrey Landers, Kwajalein Range Services Recreation Programs manager. Also involved were the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nation of ce, the RMI Representative of ce and Community Activities. The Roughriders, reining champion of more than 20 teams on Majuro, brought approximately 20 players and the Scrubs have 14 on their roster, according to Landers. According to Paul, sponsorship for the Majuro women’s trip to Kwajalein came as a result of fundraising, which included barbecues in that they sold plates of food. They also wrote letters for support from business and local government. On arrival, the Majuro team brought offerings of food to Leroj Seagull Kabua James, a Marshallese tradition called “lolak Iroij en,” which allowed them to roam the

Left, Kaya Landers and Amy Hansen high ve Athelta Slinger for a great game. Right, Tama David prepares to make a with blessing, according to Paul. Landers said both teams play very hard. “The Roughriders are a very competitive team that can really hit the ball.” The most important similarity, he said, is that “you can tell that both teams really enjoy playing the game. Their sportsmanship is great.” Landers considers the tournament a chance for the teams and leagues to develop relationships that hopefully will turn into an annual event where the two island champions meet. He added that it is “an opportunity to meet new people, develop positive r e l ations wit h t h e Ma j uro community an d d isp l ay our Kwajalein hospitality.” Paul, a Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School graduate of the Class of 1999, said his hope for his team is that they “develop a sense of pride in representing their community by playing here on Kwajalein and that they gain a new prospective on competition, but most importantly a sense of fellowship.” “It’s building a bridge between the communities through sports,” Paul said. He hopes that it leads to more games in the future, possibly on Majuro and said there are talks about 2006 RMI National Games, which could include softball, basketball an d ot h er sports. “ It ’ s sti ll in t h e wor k s, ” h e sai d


Wednesday, June 15, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 HEALTHCARE, from Page 2high. With her pension, Social Secu-rity, Medicare and kitchen sink, my mother could not afford it. My brothers and I would have to make up the difference, which in turn would take away from saving for our own retirement costs. But what choice would we have? There are three things you need for retirement. Some money, a paid of ce for assistance if time permits.What about if something goes wrong enroute? Opiniano: If you require changes to your existing reservations and you have already purchased your e-tickets, all you have to do is call us with the changes you want to make and we can do them for you while you are off island. The Kwajalein travel of ce is recognized as a travel of ce and uses a system called Amadeus, which provides us great exibility in researching customer requests for airline space, hotels, cars, etc. Our of ce hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and our phone numbers are referenced on the copy of your itinerary for your convenience. On another note, if you have a paper ticket – and again, it will depend on the type of ticket you are holding – but most of the time if you are requesting a change to the ticket, you will need to go to a Continental ticketing of ce to have the ticket reissued if the ticket was issued originally by Continental. As always, in case of an emergency, and you can't get a hold of the Kwajalein travel of ce, call the airline that you will be ying for assistance.Security do's and don'ts...what's unique to international travel?Opiniano: Each country has different immigration, customs and security directives. What is applicable in the U.S. may not be applicable in other countries. You can go online to the Transportation Security Administration Web site, which provides you with the detailed security directives. Continental complies with all federally mandated security directives. Groth: The biggest change this year is that lighters are prohibited beyond the security check point and lighters and matches are not allowed to be carried in your checked baggage. Passengers may be ned for trying to do so by the TSA.What are the biggest challenges for Kwaj travelers? Opiniano: We recommend that you check in for your ight at least two hours prior to departure. Remember to shop early and be as exible as possible. Use the Internet for your leisure travel! There are many options on the airline, hotel and rental car Web sites. ( Editor’s note: For all KRS-paid travel off Kwajalein, it is required that arrangements are made through the on-island Continental Ticket Of ce. ) Know the times of check in and baggage allowance, keeping in mind that different airlines have different allowances and restrictions on baggage. Baggage allowances if you are traveling on Continental within the mainland is only 50 pounds. Most international carriers are much more restrictive for checked luggage and carry on and it is suggested that you check with airline or the travel representative if you are planning international travel. The biggest challenge for Kwajalein is that the ight from Guam makes various stops and that those ights have a priority over ours. Direction of the plane determines priority as far as seating goes. Guam, Chuuk, Pohnpei or Kosrae may reseat you. Every two summers residents from Third Island and Ebeye y to Majuro for church conventions. This is one of those years, and these travellers total about 300 people. Groth: Having proper travel documentation seems to be the biggest challenge for passengers lately. Check your travel documents well in advance of your travel plans so that there’s time to get them renewed, if needed.What is the current Continental Airlines luggage requirements?Opiniano : International ights (Kwajalein/Honolulu/ Kwajalein) – Two bags per person at 70 pounds not to exceed 62 linear inches (total length + width + height). Domestic ights (Honolulu/CONUS/Honolulu) – Two bags per person at 50 pounds not to exceed 62 linear inches. Carry ons not to exceed 51 linear inches per person. Groth: TSA is also enforcing the hand-carry rule, which is that a passenger may have one hand-carry item and one personal item, such as a purse, laptop or briefcase.Are there pitfalls unique to this summer? How can they be avoided? Groth: Having only one airline servicing Kwaj this year is a challenge. My best piece of advice is to get a pre-assigned seat when making reservations and to be on time for check-in and pre-departure screening. Once check-in has closed, we release held seats and those passengers who were on a standby list will be cleared, if possible. Pre-departure screening has be-See TRAVEL, Page 12 TRAVEL, from Page 3 for place to live and good health insurance. If you don’t have the last one, the rst two will disappear if a major illness strikes. That’s America’s crisis, not Social Security.

KPD [Kwajalein Police Department] Entry and Exit of cers work both the outbound and the inbound ights. We try to get all the passengers into the screened area before Continental arrives so that KPD E/E can then work the arriving ight. Passengers who show up late will end up waiting outside until the required of cers are available to go back to the pre-departure screening area. We have run into a situation a couple of times where an AMI [Air Marshall Islands] ight arrived shortly after the Continental and of cers were not available to go back to the screening area. In those cases, the passenger was unseated from the ight, the baggage pulled and the customer rebooked for a later ight. What does Aloha’s departure mean for the average traveler?Groth: Continental has been proactively watching the “no show” factor and adjusting the overbooking numbers accordingly. We had our rst summer ight yesterday [Friday] and all con rmed ticketed passengers made the ight.TRAVEL, from Page 6 By Amber Morse Kwajalein Tennis ClubThe Kwajalein Tennis Club held a double elimination style Mixed Doubles tournament Sunday and Monday.

By Shelly Corbett Brownie Troop 2 leaderBrownie Troop 2, made up of rst and second-grade Girl Scouts, ended a year-long community service project on May 31. The 12 girls have been earning extra money at home to purchase school supplies for a rst-grade classroom at Ebeye Public School. The Brownies have been collecting these supplies all year and nally got to deliver them, in person, to their new Ebeye friends. After singing songs to each other, and together, in their classroom, the children from Ebeye presented each girl with a Marshallese necklace. The Brownies then took a short walk to Jabro Private School where they got to sing lots of Girl Scout songs to the kindergarten, eighth grade and senior classes. The kindergarten children stood up and sang along as well. Amy LaCost planned this activity for the Brownies. All parents in attendance were in agreement that this was a valuable experience for their daughters and were hoping that it could be continued next year. Brownie Troop 2 is led by Shelley Corbett and Laurel Hammons.Brownie Troop 2 visits Ebeye public school Sun Moon Tides Sun rise/set Moon rise/set High Tide Low Tide Thursday 0631/1909 1339/0117 1050, 3.9' 0440, 2.4' June 16 2400, 3.9' 1730, 1.9' Friday 0631/1909 1425/0155 1210, 3.9' 0610, 2.2' June 17 1830, 1.7' Saturday 0631/1909 1515/0235 0100, 4.3' 0720, 1.9' June 18 1310, 4.0' 1920, 1.5'
