Wednesday, June 29, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassBuckminster and FriendsI saw something on the news a few days ago that left me dumbfounded. I’m sure everyone knows about the poor performance of Humvees (even if they are armored) in Iraq and how so many terrible casualties are occurring because of it. Well, it seems a company has made a vehicle that can roll over a land mine or an improvised explosive device, be exposed to rocket-propelled grenade re and other types of attacks and still keep its occupants safe. The Pentagon is reportedly interested in buying several hundred of them. If I’m not mistaken, I believe the cost of the vehicles is $250,000 each. All that’s well and good except this company is in South Africa. So U.S. taxpayer money would be going to a foreign country to help employ thousands of South African workers at that particular company. Sabrina Mumma2The Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to USAKA. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA.

This is needless loss of life. I ask commanders and supervisors to review your policies pertaining to highway and recreational safety. Points to emphasize include: • seatbelts save lives. Use them. • do not drink and drive a car or recreational vehicle. • safety equipment can help. Many states require the use of protective gear while operating motorcycles and other recreational vehicles. Review base and installation policies to ensure they are in line with the latest federal, state, and local statutes and guidelines. The summer is a time for many of us to spend a little more time on leave and vacation with family and friends. Enjoy it, but be smart. And be safe. Can anyone here make a good armored vehicle?Meanwhile, back at the ranch as the saying goes, General Motors is laying off 25,000 American workers and has announced plans to close several of its plants. As I’m writing this, I see on the Internet that Ford Motor Company is planning layoffs and plant closures also. I also see that Winn-Dixie, one of the largest food store chains in the country is ling for bankruptcy and, you guessed it, planning layoffs and closing hundreds of its stores. Now I’ll admit I’m not the brightest bulb in the xture, but I have to wonder why GM and Ford ain’t making those hard-to-blow-up vehicles here in the good ol’ USA. Do the South Africans have a secret to building armored vehicles that Americans don’t? If the Humvees aren’t cutting it, then make something else. But let's do it in the United States.

Wednesday, June 29, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3 Marshall Islands sign the of cial documents Saturday at the grand opening. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie) By Elizabeth Davie ReporterThe ribbon was cut Saturday celebrating the grand opening of Kwajalein’s rst privately-owned enterprise, Bank of Marshall Islands. A grand opening ceremony was held outside the bank, which is located in the trailer closest to the Dock Security Checkpoint. Following the invocation given by the Rev. John Sheehan, Roman Catholic priest, Maj. David Coffey, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nation Of ce, stole the microphone. Coffey said he did not see his name anywhere on the program but he was going to say a few words anyway. “What you see behind me is not just a 40-year-old trailer on its last leg; it is a symbol of things to come.” To conclude his impromptu speech he said “BOMI is the rst Marshallese run business here, but I expect others to follow right on its heels.” COL Beverly Stipe, USAKA commander, followed Coffey’s speech. She said someone made a mistake giving him the microphone because he read her speech. “But he was wrong, it is a 54year-old trailer.” Stipe said. According to Stipe the facility is only temporary and will be moved to a permanent location in Building 702. The Honorable Brenson Wase, RMI minister of Finance, was the next to speak to the crowd of more than 50. “I wish to applaud USAKA for allowing BOMI to come here,” Wase said. “We are so thankful for all that you have done to improve the working conditions for Marshallese citizens,” he added. Wase went on to quote Neil Armstrong and said of the opening, “‘one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.’ “Lastly, but still very important, I would like to say give us low rates on loans and high rates on saving,” he concluded. Patrick Chen, president of BOMI thanked Wase for his remarks and said he would get back to him. After the speeches and the ribbon cutting the tailor-turned-bank was open for business. Minutes after the doors were open a line of people formed. The bank is for use by C-Badge workers. The current activities of the bank will cover a wide range of banking and nancial services. These include commercial and retail loans, business and personal checking accounts, savings and time deposit instruments and international banking services such as import and export collections, remittances and letters of credit. BOMI will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and will be closed U.S. holidays, as well as Sundays and Mondays.

Wednesday, June 29, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 the mid 70s, through early 80s, there used to be two leagues every night.” Ching would like to thank Thompson and Junior for their outstanding mechanical knowledge. “Without their support, we would have probably run into a few tournament stoppages,” he said. For more information on upcoming bowling events, call 53320. and Ebeye.According to Bernard Bard Ching, a coordinator of the event, there was no of cial tournament planned for Saturday so they organized a No-Tap tournament, nine pins for men and 8 pins for women on the rst ball count as a strike. This was to allow the Majuro team to get the feel of the lanes and for all the players to meet with each other.Ching said, “Saturday brought approximately 23 bowlers, with the top two women rolling off against the top four men with Adele Castellano coming out on top with her 183.” Sunday’s Marshall Islands Goodwill Tournament was sponsored by BOMI. According to Patrick Chen, president of BOMI, the purpose of the tournament was for people to be able to socialize and to have a friendly game. Chen described it as a “friendship exchange.”“Sunday sent seven teams to an exciting last ball, last bowler win for the Kwaj team of Castellano, Dean Watanabe, Palepa Smith and Mike Wiley in the sudden death roll off score of 30 to 29,” Ching said.Sunday’s tournament lasted for about nine hours. The winning team received $400, second place $160, third and fourth $80, fth through seventh $40. The total prize fund was $840, $500 of which was donated by BOMI. “My overall award out of this Goodwill tournament was gaining 12 – 15 new friends. That’s the positive aspect of bowling being a con ned sport, as you get to know each competitor. With the tournament’s lane rotation system in place, we got to know each player, and high ves given to the good shots with our newly acquired friends,” Ching said. Plans are in the works according to Ching to have another bowling tournament on Majuro on Labor Day weekend.When asked if there are anymore tournaments planned for Kwaj, Ching said, “De nitely! The Wednesday Nite Islands League is the only league that has remained active after 10-plus years, and 50-plus seasons. Attempting to re-establish bowling as the all-seasons sport with more Monte Carlo, No-Tap and possibly a company league, to ll the other days of the week. There are bowlers out there, but we need to nd the way to get them to the alleys, to participate. In Cathy Thomas of Ebeye tries to pick up a spare.

Wednesday, June 29, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Think safety when bike ridingVEHICLES, from Page 2 You know, have U.S. taxpayer money pay U.S. workers who in turn can pay taxes and have money to buy things (like groceries) to help the economy grow and thereby keep other U.S. workers employed. Are American manufacturers so bad that the Pentagon would rather have our military’s equipment made in foreign countries? It’s absolutely frightening how dependent America is on other nations for our needs. And it’s absolutely asinine how Americans deal with foreign countries on trade issues. If you really want to worry about homeland security, I wouldn’t spend as much time thinking about terrorists as I would about how oil is hovering at $60 a barrel and how the United States has a kabillion dollar trade de cit with China. And how about India having all the call and computer service centers for every business in the U.S., taking hundreds of thousands of technology and data storage jobs away from Americans. Isn’t it such a comfort to know that our income tax records, social security numbers, mortgage loans, credit card data and other personal, private information is stored in computers in Bombay and Calcutta? Makes me sleep better at night. Folks, we have met the enemy and they is us. Every time someone lls up their gas tank in anytown, USA, they’re nancing the terrorists who want to kill us. Just where do you think that oil money is going? In case you’ve been under a rock, most every oil producing country on earth doesn’t like us. What would happen if Islamic radicals took over Saudi Arabia and Kuwait? What would happen if Iraq turns into an radical Islamic state when and if American troops leave? We wouldn’t have to worry about oil prices because we wouldn’t be getting any oil. How do you suppose our economy would be doing then? Americans put a man on the moon, sent Voyager and other craft into space. Americans created the Global Positioning System and other amazing technological breakthroughs. We can’t nd an alternative, inexpensive fuel source? America and its people better commit to nding such a fuel and do whatever it takes to free ourselves of being so dependent on other countries, friendly or unfriendly. We built a massive space program because the country was committed to it and willing to spend the money to do it. The motivation then was the Cold War and fear of the Soviet Union beating us into space. From the Safety Of ceThis could happen to you. How many times have we heard the news “someone was struck and injured while riding a bike?” As bike riding is the primary mode of transportation on the island, we must constantly remind ourselves, and practice, safety. When riding our bikes, remember: 1. Ride on the right side of the street. 2. Ride in single le when traf c is approaching or the street is congested. 3. Use hand signals to let others know your intention. 4. Use a light at night, 30 minutes before sundown and 30 minutes after sun up. The motivation of being non-oil dependent and reducing our trade de cit should be the fear of economic destruction. One of the biggest reasons oil prices are rising is because of the increased demand by China and India whose stuff Americans buy that is made by workers making 20 percent of what American workers make and so American workers lose their jobs. Now China is trying to buy an American oil company. The way we do things, I have no doubt they will succeed. We’re shooting ourselves in the foot every day. It would take American government and industry working together for the good of the country and not for the special interest groups. It would take the American people buying American made goods even if they’re a little more expensive. Americans would have to drive smaller, more fuel ef cient vehicles (made in Detroit, not Tokyo). Maybe even drive (gasp) electric cars. If everyone would work together, it could be done. This is the war America needs to ght. And it's a deadly war for American workers. I can’t believe the country isn't capable of it. If we are to survive the world of tomorrow, we better be. 5. Watch where you are going. 6. If turning left, make sure no one is passing you. Also, do not turn in front of oncoming traf c. 7. Do not let anyone ride double on your bike. 8. Keep your bike in good shape. Check bolts, lube the chain, check the brakes, and look for worn or failing parts. 9. Never carry oversized or heavy objects in your basket. 10. Never carry objects in one hand while riding. 11. Stop and look in both directions before crossing or entering an intersection 12. Give the right of way to emergency vehicles. Practice this and please advise your family members. Don’t become a headline.In the past few months, children have been observed lifting covers from man holes and utility pits, and going inside. As you know, this is dangerous. These pits contain valves, piping, water accumulation, and if left uncovered, is Inform children of danger of man holes, utility pits a fall hazard for anyone walking in the area. Please inform your family members of the danger associated with these pits and ask that they not lift the covers or enter the pits. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Nugent, CSP Environmental Safety and Health ManagerThe July 4th holiday brings to mind happy times with our families. Whether it was a trip to the beach, boating, shing, reworks, or backyard cookouts, we all like to celebrate our day of independence. As some of you know, this increase in activities also brings about tragedies. Drinking and driving has been and issue, reworks accidents have occurred, and water related accidents always increase during this particular holiday. We don’t want you to become a statistic in one of the above categories. In celebrating our independence, remember the following: 1. If you consume alcohol, do so moderately. 2. Do not drink while boating, diving, swimming, or skiing.3. Use caution when using grills. Do not leave the grill unattended. Do not allow children near the grill. 4. Make sure you are in physical and mental shape when taking on any new sport or physical activity. 5. Use sunscreen. Our forefathers gave us the right to be free. Freedom allows us to have the luxury of choices. Make sure your choice is the safe one. Holiday safetyrequires choices Hourglass reportsA little after 7 p.m. on Saturday a member of the Kwajalein Police Department noti ed the Central Police Station Desk Of cer and said that he had discovered a suspicious device near Building 562, the Shell bachelor quarters. An investigation revealed the device was a ticking alarm clock, cellophane taped to a yellow in color plastic box according to Lt. Michael Bucher, KPD Operations of cer. Standard procedures were followed and the Central Police Station called the Explosive K9 handler and the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team. “EOD responded and assumed control of the scene,” Bucher said. Bucher added that KPD evacuated buildings and established a cordon around the effected area. EOD used an explosive charge to disable the device. It was determined there was no explosive residue, or improvised explosive components within the debris; EOD de-KPD responds quickly Suspicious device not dangerousclared the area safe. Police reduced the cordon size to the immediate affected area, and police investigators collected and processed evidence from the scene. The case remains open pending further investigative leads. “If any member of the public discovers a device or package they deem suspicious in nature, it is imperative the individual sounds the alarm immediately. Information is critical; ensure you make a mental note of the devise/ package’s description. You want to be able to relate to the authorities its size, color, and location; if there is writing, illustrations, or wiring visible, this is information that should be included in the description,” Bucher said. “If you are able, place an object near the devise/package to mark its location it could prove bene cial. If the devise/package is small or well hidden, placing a marker will assist the police in quickly locating and assessing the object. Finally, attempt to clear the immediate area of bystanders until the arrival of authorities,” he added.
