Wheeler and Welch met in April of 2004 and knew they were just right for each other two weeks later. The Welch/Wheeler wedding is tentatively planned to take place in the fall of 2006. Wheeler is the son of Steve and Karen Wheeler. He was born and raised in Franklin, Mass. where he grew up with three brothers and two sisters. At the age of 18, Wheeler became a re ghter and has been working as a contract re ghter ever since. In 2001, Wheeler was hired to work for the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Fire department on Kwajalein. Welch was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and has lived in numerous states throughout her life. She is the third child in the Welch family and has four brothers and one sister. Welch graduated from high school in Utah at the age of 16, and immediately started college. She moved to Kwajalein two years ago, becoming a resident in December 2003. Welch is currently taking classes through the University of Maryland and works as an accountant for Kwajalein Range Services Finance department. Landon Wheeler and Regina Welch Engagement news By Mary Beth Clark I agree with Karren Campbell and her letter discussing that we have lost our “Can-Do” attitude here. All one has to do is look at the Sensing Committee minutes and read how concerns are being handled. COL Stipe is right, there are many people who make things happen here every day. They do their jobs well day in and day out which is great, but the real true “Can Do” people on this island are those volunteers who make this such a great place to live. This list is many, and I could never name them all, but there are a few outstanding volunteers who deserve some sort of recognition. Lora Kendrick is one of these individuals. She is heavily involved in many community organizations including swim team, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, CWF [Christian Women’s Fellowship], PTO and other organizations on island. Bob Sholar and other members of the running club provide great community activities. What about Cris Lindborg and the Marshall Islands Center? Kwajalein would not be the same without the Scuba Club. The Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club is an outstanding organization that is totally run by volunteers. LaVerne Arthur and her great group of women keep the MIC [Micronesian Handicraft] Shop stocked and available for all of us who are looking for Micronesian articles. Then there is Kate Lollar and all her volunteers who work tirelessly in the Bargain Bazaar. What about all the coaches who volunteer their time for all the sports on this island? There is the Ham Radio Club, the Kwajalein Art Guild, the Filipino Club, the Hispanic Club, the Sport Fishing Club, the Yacht Club and all the leaders in the Boy Scout and Girl Scout organizations, the PTO at the elementary school who work to make that school a better place and the School Advisory Committee manned by volunteers who give up two nights a month for the schools on Kwajalein. I know there are many other organizations that I didn’t mention here, but deserve to be recognized also. All these organizations improve our quality of life which helps us recruit and retain all those that do their jobs so well. They also help take the burden off of Community Activities, which saves dollars in these tight budget times.On April 9, 2004, over 400 “Can Do” people packed the MP [multi-purpose] room to help a family on this island get through the toughest test they have ever faced. This was the night of my daughter’s memorial service, and this was where that true “Can-Do” spirit came through. Yes, the paid Can Do’ers may be harder to nd, but those who truly care about Kwajalein are still here working hard.

Saturday, Sept. 17, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3School Advisory Council to hold its first public meeting of school yearSee COUNCIL, Page 7 24-hour KRS hotline available By Elizabeth Davie ReporterKwajalein Range Services would like to remind its employees and subcontractors that issues of concern can be called in to the KRS Employee Concerns Program 24-hour hotline at 55577 or to the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Regan Test Site hotline at 51098. “The purpose of the Employee Concerns Program is to provide a method for employees of KRS and its subcontractors to raise issues to the attention of management about the company, including its operations and its working conditions, and the living and community conditions on Kwajalein, without fear of reprimand, retaliation or duress,” Stacey Chados, KRS internal auditor and ethics of cer, said. Chados added that employees are encouraged to bring concerns to their immediate supervisor or manager. “This is the most direct way to address an issue and see it resolved in the most expeditious and ef cient manner. However, if employees do not receive satisfactory resolution of their concern from their supervisor or manager, or if employees are not comfortable bringing concerns to their supervisor or manager, employees can contact the ECP,” she said. Issues that are encouraged to be brought up include, but are not limited to safety, health, quality, security, environment, fraud, waste, abuse, corruption and harassment. Chados would like employees to keep in mind that the ECP is here to be sure the company does things in a proper way. “This does not always mean that employees who bring forth issues of concern will receive their most desired outcome,” she said. The ECP maintains anonymity and con dentiality to the extent possible. “The identity of an employee who raises a concern is protected upon a con dentiality request of the employee. However, con dentiality cannot be 100 percent assured. Under certain conditions, such as safety, security, or legal requirements, the employee may need to be identi ed. In these instances, the employee will be informed how and when his/her name will be used. It will be disclosed as little as possible under the circumstances. If con dentiality is not requested, employee names shall be used only when necessary,” Chados explained. According to Chados, KRS also receives some anonymous calls, which are more dif cult to handle. “If an anonymous concern is raised, KRS cannot gather follow-up details from the caller, so there is no assurance that all of the requisite information has been obtained to conduct a thorough review. Further, while KRS addresses each anonymous concern in an appropriate manner, no follow-up information can be provided back to the person who raised the concern. All employees, regardless of whether their names are disclosed, are also protected from harassment or retaliation for raising a concern, in accordance with KRS company policy,” she said. The SPI for this program has been in place since May of 2004. “An ethics program and the use of an ECP hotline can only be successful with the support of senior-level management. In addition, the ECP hotline can only be successful if employees responsibly and timely report issues of concern,” Chados stated. She also said that an effective ECP hotline can help promote safety, identify inappropriate behavior and reinforce KRS’ core values of consistently providing uncompromising integrity, honesty and fairness in its day-to-day business activities. “In this regard, the ECP bene ts the KRS organization, its employees and its customers.” For more information on the ECP, call Chados at 50839.Employee Concerns Program By Mig Owens Assistant editorThis year’s School Advisory Council will convene at 7 p.m., Wednesday, at the George Seitz Elementary School Music Room for its rst public meeting. By policy, the School Advisory Council acts in an advisory capacity to the commander, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site, and the Logistics contractor to help establish and promote standards of educational services for both dependent children and adults residing on USAKA. The SAC meetings, scheduled for the third Wednesday of each month, are public meetings and everyone in the Kwajalein community is invited. According to Jim Landgraff, council chairman, community members interested in the educational programs carried out by the Kwajalein Education System; both child and adult education, are the target audience.“The ow of information at the SAC meetings should be two-directional,” Landgraff said. “The schools’ administrators will be presenting regular updates on the

4 Foreign Affairs since 1976. A day in his life involves planning, coordinating and implementing administrative functions and activities of the RMI with USAKA, the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government, Kwajalein Atoll Development Authority, the Traditional Leaders of Kwajalein Atoll (Landowners, Iroj and Alap) and the Marshallese workforce working with U.S. contractors. “I represent the RMI in establishment and maintaining the mutual understanding and close relationship between RMI and U.S.…and maintain the presence of RMI on Kwajalein as agreed in the Compact of Free Associations with the U.S. government,” Malolo said. Malolo is among four appointed members of the government’s various ministries who work on Kwajalein. About 120 more work on Ebeye and other islands. The Marshall Islands’ road to democracy was marked with twists and turns and began in 1945 when 24 Marshallese communities established local governments under American military supervision. Following World War II, the islands of Micronesia, except Guam, Nauru and the Gilbert Islands, became part of the United Nations Strategic Trust Territory of the Paci c Islands. Marshall Islands’winding road to democracy began in 1945 T By Mig Owens Assistant editorThe Republic of the Marshall Islands is a sovereign nation and member of the United Nations. A democracy since 1979, the RMI has a constitutional government that is in free association with the U.S. Yet even today, the Marshall Islands retain elements of their traditional government through the Council of Iroij. Twelve members make up the council, selected by agreement among the traditional leaders. Their job is to adjudiate customary and traditional laws. The government’s legislative branch, the Nitijela, has 33 elected members and in turn, elects the president. Now in his second term, President Kessai Note oversees the government’s various ministries. Hiram Malolo, RMI representative to the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, was hired by the government upon graduation from college and works for one of the nine ministries. Born on Jaluit Atoll, he grew up on Ebeye and has worked for the Ministry of Education and T i m e l i n e o f i m p o r t a n t e v e n t s i n M a r s h a l l e s e g o v e r n m e n t We, the people of the Marshall Islands, trusting in God, the Giver of our life, liberty, identity and our inherent rights, do h ereby exercise these rights and establish for ourselves and generations to come this Constitution, setting forth the legitimate legal framework for the governance of the Marshall Islands. We have reason to be proud of our forefathers who boldly ventured across the unknown waters of the vast Paci c Ocean many centuries ago, ably responding to the constant challenges of maintaining a bare existence on these tiny islands, in their noble quest to build their own distinctive society. This society has survived, and has withstood the test of time, the impact of other cultures, the devastation of war, and the high price paid for the purposes of international peace and security. All we have and are today as a people, we have received a s a sacred heritage which we pledge ourselves to safeguard and maintain, valuing nothing more dearly than our rightful home on these islands. With this Constitution, we af rm our desire and right to live in peace and harmony, subscribing to the principles of democracy, sharing the aspirations of all other peoples for a free and peaceful world, and striving to do all we can to assist in achievin g this goal. We extend to other peoples what we profoundly seek from them: peace, friendship, mutual understanding and respect for our individual idealism and our common humanity. M a r s h a l l e s e j o u r n e y Editor’s note: This article is the second in a series that explores Marshallese history, government and culture.

Japanese headquarters for the Marshalls remain in Ja lwoj. 1935 Japan pulls out of the League of Nations and claims absolute sovereignty over the Marshalls. 1945 Twenty-four Marshallese communities establish local governments under American military supervision. 1947 The Marshall Islands become part of the United Nations Strategic Trust Territory under the administering authority of the U.S. 1978 A vote is held in all the Trust Territory of the Paci c Islands districts to decide whether to ratify a constitution that would unite the districts into the Federated States of Micronesia. The Marshall Islands and Palau vote against the FSM constitution. 1984 President Amata Kabua proclaims the Republic of the Marshall Islands. 1986 After approval by the U.S. Congress, President Ronald Reagan signs the Compact of Free Association into law. 1991 The RMI joins the United Nations.The Congress of Micronesia was then formed by the U.S. in the mid-1960s from representatives of the TTPI countries to help them work together and encourage the democratic process. After about 10 years, the countries decided to seek separate political status. “The Marshalls adopted the nation’s rst constitution in 1978, of cially became self governing in 1979 and changed the of cial name to the Republic of the Marshall Islands in 1982,” Alan Taylor, RMI Relations specialist, said. “RMI voters approved the Compact of Free Association with the United States in 1983 and in 1986, the U.S. Congress approved the Compact.” Prior to 1866, when Germany established a protectorate over the Marshalls, the RMI was tied together geographically and linguistically and originally known by Marshallese as Aelon Kein Ad (Our Islands), Taylor explained. Compared to other nations whose government systems have been practiced for much longer, Malolo said, “our government is still young but trying its best to improve the nation.” T i m e l i n e o f i m p o r t a n t e v e n t s i n M a r s h a l l e s e g o v e r n m e n t Timeline of important events in Marshallese government N e w l y e l e c t e d R M I P r e s i d e n t K e s s a i N o t e a c c o m p a n i e d b y h i s w i f e M a r y w a l k s t o t h e Newly elected RMI President Kessai Note, accompanied by his wife, Mary, walks to the p o d i u m i n t h e N i t i j e l a c h a m b e r i n M a j u r o t o d e l i v e r h i s r s t i n a u g u r a l s p e e c h i n 2 0 0 0 podium in the Nitijela chamber in Majuro to deliver his rst inaugural speech in 2000.

Saturday, Sept. 17, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Trip to France allows Kwajalein students to test language skillsParlez-vous fran ais? Mig Owens Assistant editorWhat better way to spend a summer than with a trip to Paris, complete with a train ride on Train a Grande Vitesse to Chamonix in the French Alps, a drive through the Italian countryside to San Remo, then Monaco, Eze and Nice on the French Riviera?Students with at least one year of French studies on Kwajalein under their belt met at the Boston airport in July to do just that – traveling together to test their newfound language skills. The fifteen Kwajalein students and parents joined with other high school groups, combining to form a group of 49 who then followed an itinerary together from July 11 to 19. Both current residents and several who moved from Kwajalein attended including: Rachael Stepchew, Jackie Nast, Hayley Nast, Sara Barrs, Alyx Howard, Lauren Peters, Jessie Brown, Eric Parker and Chris Berlind, parents Cindy Barrs and Sheri Howard and former residents Sylvia Riley, Mark Riley and James Ouderkirk. According to Barbara Bicanich, French teacher, the trip was an opportunity to experience life in France as well as a chance to put into practice the language elements the students learned in class. “It’s one thing to learn in the classroom via movies, music, photos and grammar lessons; it’s a whole other thing to view it rst-hand,” Bicanich said. A senior studying her fourth year of French, Peters said the trip was completely “unique.” Though unable to compare her rst trip to France to anything she’d ever done before, she said, “Paris museums and the Eiffel Tower – it all came back what we were talking about in class. It was great.” Peters, who understood most of what was said, remembers only one moment on the trip that stumped her. On a stop for food on their way to the Alps, Peters said she could neither understand what the woman was saying nor think of what to say in response. For this reason, she explained, the students stuck together in groups to help each other out. After considering whether or not to take French in college, she said she will do so because she’d like to return to France. Because the trip is every two years, Peters is eligible to go again with the Kwajalein group after her freshman year. “It never fails that during the trip, a student will say, ‘I remember when we studied that – it’s the same as the picture in our textbook,’” Bicanich said. The older students were particularly knowledgeable at the museums and she hopes in uenced some future French students. Stepchew, now in her second year studying French, said that she learned a lot while traveling in France, especially when faced with reading signs and tickets at train stations. “It was different – a group learning experience,” she said of her rst trip to the country. “It’s fun and everything you learn with Ms. B. you use.” Stepchew found that when she and the other students spoke French, it was warmly received and that most French citizens slowed down their speech and tried to help the students as much as possible. “They were pleased that they knew more than they thought they did,” Bicanich said of the students. “They actually spoke French and made themselves understood.”  Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School students visit an ice cave in the French Alps on their trip to France, Italy and Monaco.

Additionally, the public attendees will have an opportunity to provide comments about educational policy, concerns and compliments.”Landgraff sees the SAC as important because it acts as a conduit between the USAKA commander and local educational programs, providing advice to the commander on the general health of the Kwajalein educational system as well as recommendations, as necessary, on speci c issues.Elizabeth Davie ReporterKwajalein welcomed a new Registered Veterinary Technician who is available full time to island pet owners.Jenny Schwartz came to Kwajalein at the beginning of August from Seattle where she lived for three years. Schwartz started her career in veterinary service right out of high school in the U.S. Army as a 91 Tango, animal care specialist. “She has come on-island with a lot of energy and expertise,” Beth Turnbaugh, hospital administrator, said of Schwartz. “I graduated from Bel-Rea in Denver. I worked on a feedlot for a short period of time in Montana and was a large animal intern at Littleton Large Animal Clinic in Colorado. I sat for the national and state Veter inary technician comes on island with animal care expertiseboards for Colorado in 2001. I worked at a couple of veterinary practices in Colorado while I was going to school, one in Denver that was a small animal practice and one in Bailey that was a mixed animal practice. After school, I moved to Ohio where I was one of two licensed technicians on staff for a multi-practice hospital. I was the lead technician for the hospital and the medical directors’ technician [in Seattle]. I have also been registered as a Veterinary Dental Technician and have participated in several dental seminars as well as behavior and critical care nursing,” Schwartz said. When asked about her responsibilities on Kwaj she said, “So far, it seems to be paperwork, importing and exporting and vaccines. It is de nitely a different pace from Seattle.” Since Schwartz’s arrival she is available for pet owners on Veterinary Technician Jenny Schwartz examines Sassy, an island cat.“I look forward to working on the SAC and assisting the commander and Kwajalein educators in providing topnotch educational opportunities at USAKA,” he said.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. HerbieFully Loaded The world’s wackiest Volkswagen is back in action in this action comedy. Maggie Peyton (Lindsay Lohan) is the 18-year-old daughter of Ray Peyton Sr. (Michael Keaton), a once-successful stock car driver whose career is not what it once was. Maggie loves racing and is in line for a job covering NASCAR for ESPN, but in her heart she’d rather be behind the wheel, even though her father strictly forbids this. For Maggie’s birthday, Ray takes her out looking for a used car, and she nds herself strangely drawn to a wrecked 1963 Volkswagen in a salvage yard. Against Ray’s better judgment, Maggie gets the car, and a note in the glove box tells her the rust bucket is named “Herbie,” and he can help her solve her problems. To her surprise, the message turns out to be true — with a little TLC, Herbie is running like new, and after showing his stuff in a street race, Maggie persuades her naysayer dad to take her and her VW on as part of his racing team. Herbie: Fully Loaded also stars Matt Dillon as rival racer Trip Murphy, Breckin Meyer as Maggie’s brother (and fellow struggling driver) Ray Jr., and Justin Long as Maggie’s friend Kevin. The Honeymooners One of television’s most beloved sitcoms gets an overhaul for the big screen in this comedy. Ralph Kramden (Cedric the Entertainer) is a New York City bus driver who has great ambitions and plans to make something of himself one day. However, Ralph’s big ideas usually take the form of half-baked get-rich-quick schemes which invariably fail, much to the chagrin of his long-suffering wife, Alice (Gabrielle Union). But Ralph always has a loyal ally in his best friend and upstairs neighbor, Ed Norton (Mike Epps), a sewer worker who also has a wife who is weary of his antics, Trixie (Regina Hall). Alice and Trixie have a plan to come up with the down payment for a dream house: a suburban duplex that’s being eyed by a shady developer (Eric Stoltz). But when Ralph and Ed decide to spend their savings on training a stray mutt for the New Jersey dog races, they threaten both couples’ futures. Based on the classic Jackie Gleason and Art Carney series, The Honeymooners also stars John Leguizamo. ROI FUEL/SUPPLY PIER REPLACEMENT, ROI-NAMUR ISLAND, USAKA ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTThe U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command has completed an Environmental Assessment, prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing NEPA. The EA analyzes the environmental consequences of replacing the fuel/supply pier on the Island of Roi-Namur, which is part of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site. The existing fuel/supply pier and pier approach are in poor structural condition and in danger of collapsing. The design to replace the existing pier with either a replacement pier or wharf would meet the operational requirements of Roi-Namur. Three alternative designs were considered. Alternative 1 would replace the existing fuel/supply pier and pier approach with a new L-shaped 200-foot-long concrete pier supported by concrete piles. Alternative 2 would include the construction of a 200-foot-long by 50-foot-wide sheetpile pier with a concrete deck and solid ll. Alternative 3 (the Preferred Alternative) would replace the existing pier with a 100-foot by 50-foot wharf, oriented east/west. Construction is anticipated to occur between April 2006 and March 2007. Based on this analysis the U.S. Army has determined that proposed activities are not expected to result in signi cant impacts to the environment. A draft Finding of No Signi cant Impact and the Final EA are available at www.smdcen.us/eaeisdoc/ roiea.asp and at the following locations: Alele Public Library, P.O.

I am usually in the of ce between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.,” she said. She also recommended that owners call ahead to ensure that she would be available. Schwartz said for after-hour emergencies to contact the hospital, which would then contact her. “I do what I can, I have at least two vets in Hawaii that I can call day or night too,” she added. Like many other people on the island, Schwartz has found her job to be a little bit different than in the states. “Everything about this job is unique. Supplies usually come from the hospital – my mind is still trying to adjust to human supplies. It is hard to have a limit on what we can do here,” she said. However, being on Kwaj has already proven to bring Schwartz new experiences. “I think working with Rachel, the female green sea turtle, has been great. It de nitely pushes me into an area that I am interested in, but I have never been able to experience rst hand,” she said. Capt. Mark Chappell, a veterinarian, will be on island Tuesday through Sept. 28 during which time Schwartz will be doing dentals and assisting with scheduled procedures. She said that a vet should come to Kwaj once every three or four months.“It is a hard career emotionally and physically and while there is never a huge payoff – there are many moments that make everything worthwhile. The human-animal bond is unlike anything else in the world and being able to be a part of that is amazing,” Schwartz said.The Veterinary Clinic is located in the same building as Physical Therapy and Food Safety, next to the Yuk Club. For more information on veterinary services or to make an appointment, call Schwartz at 52017.VET, from Page 7 FashionableEveningKaren Pickler models an out t from the Bargain Bazaar Monday at the adult pool.
