The students commute over by barge every morning. Since the program was implemented in support of our host nation, a number of Marshallese children have graduated with a high school diploma from Kwajalein High School. Unfortunately, these children cannot go home for lunch. For several years now, Kwajalein School has provided lunch to these students through the generosity of private donors on the island. The nutrition a child receives is a major factor in his or her academic achievement. Children learn best when their basic physical needs are met, and no one wants to see a child go hungry. Our sincere appreciation goes out to those people and groups who donated to the guest student lunch program. The following additional individuals have contributed: Thank you to all of you who donated to our cause. It is very worthy and greatly appreciated. George Seitz Elementary will continue to accept donations to this program throughout the year. Call the school of ce at 53601 if you would like to pledge. — Dan FrazierLes and Elaine Jones Peter Barbella and Trina Tiffany Nancy Grant Sandy Steveson Deb Bowen Nancy Barge Chris Gamble Kim Morris Dr. Lance Ray Bess Buchanan Judy Davis Susan Gentry Cindy Barrs Maggie Halliday Rick Young Kathy Campbell Lisa Meyers Beth Turnbaugh Patty Galloway Steve Clause Tish Kuskulis Judy Shimamoto Stacy Wang Susan Zehr Shawn Elander Because of its tropical setting and relatively small size, we often think of Kwajalein as a safe place in which to live, especially for our children. Compared to the U.S., we do not have to worry about signi cant vehicle traf c, someone preying on our kids, or many of the other dangers typically found on the mainland. However, Kwajalein is not without hazards. Recently, on two occasions, I observed small children playing, unsupervised, on the rock seawall at the northeast end of the island. I estimate they were between 3 and 7. As you can imagine, there are many ways for a child to get hurt in this area. (It would be a dangerous environment even for a much older child.) They could slip and fall onto the rocks or fall into the water. Either of these situations could result in catastrophe. I urge all parents to teach and constantly remind their children of the dangers associated with our island. Additionally, small children should never be allowed to “roam the island” unsupervised by a responsible person. They look to us for protection. Do not let them down. — Dick NugentYoung children need to beaware of island dangers FM 99.9 Country FM 101.1 Classic rock FM 102.1 National Public Radio AM 1224 Music, sports, newsNew AFN Kwajalein radio line-up


Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3Katrina scams Phony charity Web sites, phone calls,e-mail take advantage of generosityBy Elaine Wilson Army news service The nation watched in horror as Hurricane Katrina ripped through the Gulf Coast region, and then countless heart-wrenching stories stirred people to open their homes, wallets and hearts to the evacuees. But, as the disaster grew in proportion, so did the wave of Internet, e-mail and phone scams designed to rip off generous people. Rather than let a few criminals deter a nation’s generosity, the best way to counter the latest rash of crime is through education, said Timothy Haight, a legal assistance attorney with the Of ce of the Staff Judge Advocate at Fort Sam Houston. “If you are intent on giving money, stay with the known charities,” Haight said. “Be leery of small, newly created organizations. Some of them may be scams and others may not be nonpro t organizations. A large percentage of your money may end up paying a portion of someone’s salary.” The Internet has been a growing source of fake charity scams in recent years, Haight said. Web sites seeking credit card or other personal information became increasingly prevalent after the tsunami and are still a source of trouble when natural disasters strike. In fact, there are now about four times as many scams as with the tsunami disaster, according to “There are plenty of Web sites that claim to be charitable organizations but are far from it,” Haight said. “One of the most important things to look for in the wake of Hurricane Katrina is if the Web site is recognized through the Red Cross or an authorized sponsor.” Another scam is “phishing.” In this scam, spam or e-mail messages asking for contributions link to a false Web site that looks similar to a legitimate one. Never respond to an e-mail request for a donation or open an e-mail attachment — it is almost sure to be a scam, according to People could end up with an empty wallet and a computer virus, the site said. When donating, people should be wary when giving out checks or credit card information, Haight said. “Checks have your bank information and home address. If you’re not careful, the danger then becomes identity theft.” People also should avoid placing their social security number on checks, Haight added. Although it may be tempting to give a quick, no-fuss donation, Haight also discourages people from handing over money to street solicitors who frequent busy traffic intersections and shopping center parking lots. “You need to know if someone is authorized to take donations first,” he said. “If you believe someone’s intentions are not honest, you can le a complaint with the state attorney general’s of ce or contact local law enforcement.” As for donation seekers calling people’s homes, “the Red Cross will never call you for money,” Haight said. “If you have someone calling on behalf of the Red Cross, get a name and number if you can and call the attorney general’s of ce.” People can also ask callers for written information before making a donation decision. The all-around best bet is for donors to contact the Red Cross directly, Haight said. Additionally, “contributions to relief funds set up by the state governments that were affected by the hurricane are a sure re way to get your money to those who need it most,” he said. The Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance offers a few other charitable giving tips. • Do not give cash; always make contributions by check and make checks payable to the charity, not the individual collecting the donation. • Keep records of donations (receipts, cancelled checks and bank statements) so charitable giving can be documented at tax time. However, “the Internal Revenue Service only recognizes certain charities as tax deductible,” Haight said. A list of accepted organizations is on the IRS Web site at • Don’t be fooled by names that look impressive or closely resemble the name of a well-known organization. • Check out the organization with the state attorney general’s of ce and with the Better Business Bureau. For more information on giving wisely, visit the Wise Giving Alliance Web site at, the IRS at or the Scambusters at Community chorus, band begin rehearsals The Kwajalein Community Chorus will meet for its rst rehearsal at 7:30 p.m., Sept. 29, in the high school music room. This year’s repertoire will include the Hallelujah chorus from The Messiah Antonio Vivaldi’s Gloria and other Christmas favorites. The chorus will perorm on Dec. 4. Singers with choral experience are invited to attend the rehearsals on Thursday evenings. The Kwajalein Community Band has begun rehearsals for the 2005-2006 concert season, rehearsing weekly, 7:30-8:45 p.m., on Tuesdays, in the high school music Hourglass reportsroom, September through May. The ensemble is primarily an adult organization supplemented by select members of the high school band as necessary to the balance the instrumentation. Adult band members are welcome and needed in all sections, especially clarinet, horn and tuba. The band, now in its nineteenth season, will perform a progam of Christmas carols in December and concerts in February and May. A limited number of school-owned instruments is available for loan to band members. For more information on the chorus and band, call Dick Shields, 51684, home, or the high school, 52011.


Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 A n n u a l e v e n t o n R o i r a i s e s $ 1 1 0 0 0 f o r Annual event on Roi raises $11,000 for E n n i b u r r C h i l d r e n ’ s C h r i s t m a s F u n d Enniburr Children’s Christmas Fund When you see the pure enjoyment on the kids’ faces at the Christmas party, you know it is all worthwhile.— Stephenia Cousins, ECCF vice-presidentLogistics for this year’s event proved to be a challenge, say orgainzers. Originally planned to be held in front of the Parrothead Club, the cook-off took place at its traditional location near the pool for safety reasons. Transportation affected attendance, according to Cousins, who said that last year a 189seat catamaran and six ights were used. This year, transportation was limited to one 149-person catamaran. “Getting all the great support from Kwaj up here is becoming harder every year. I was told by USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] that they can not budget extra ights or boats for us anymore, but they were courteous enough to grant us one catamaran, Tyrone Scott, ECCF president, said. “We lled up every plane and boat we had available.” “ “(Photos by Mig Owens) By Mig Owens Assistant editor“It’s all about the children,” Stephenia Cousins, Enniburr Children’s Christmas Fund vice president, said of the Chili Cook-off held on Roi-Namur Sunday. The event, now in its 14th year, raised an estimated $11,000, to be used in December to host a Christmas party on Roi for the neighboring Enniburr children. Residents of both Kwajalein and Roi-Namur turned out to support the effort. Attractions included a dunking booth, chip and put golf, radiocontrolled racing, swimming, shave ice, pie-in-theface toss and judging of this year’s 26 chili contest entrants.

Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 Support for the event was provided by the Nitro Rats, Roi/Kwaj Scuba Clubs, Boy Scouts of America and vendors, who donated their time and/or money. What went well in the planning stages, Cousins said, was assistance by Cowboy Galloway in recruiting managers for the dunk booth and pie toss. “He and his wife are two of out most enthusiastic supporters and we truly appreciate all that they do for us,” Cousins said. “Overall it came together well….we were a little nervous at rst because USAKA approved it only one month prior to it being held,” Scott added. “So we had to do everything in 30 days…but with the great support from Kwaj and Roi communities we did it.” When asked why the ECCF goes to such lengths to put on the cook-off each year, Cousins replied, “When you see the pure enjoyment on the kids’ faces at the Christmas party, you know it is all worthwhile.”Explained Scott, “Our goal is simple — to give the kids on our neighboring island, that doesn’t have running water or electricity, the best Christmas party possible. We stay focused on that instead of dollars.” CHILI COOK-OFF WINNERS First Conrad Nakasone, “Hoochie Mama Chili” (No.8) Second Matt Winkler, “Matt’s Silver City Special” (No.11) Third John New, “Outhouse Gang Chili” (No.1) Steve Rejto, Floyd Corder, Robert Steere, Nid Sponseller and Eugene Fayn give Conrad Nakaso ne a pie in the face as Damon Brown cheers them on.

Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Past Manit Day celebrations included demonstrations of Marshallese rope making, re making and lessons on how to make thatch from palm fronds. Traditional Marshallese songs, stories, food and dancing are also part of the dayÂ’s events.(File photos) Manit Day Celebrating Marshallese traditionBy Cris Lindborg Director of Exhibits, Marshallese Cultural CenterThe last Friday of September is a special day in the Marshallese calendar. Every year, this day is set aside to celebrate traditional Marshallese culture. The Marshall Islands has experienced continuous contact with other cultures for over 150 years, yet they have managed to retain their own strong cultural identity. While embracing the outsiderÂ’s religions, they maintain a strong alliance to their land, their traditional leadership and their families. The skills used to live on such small islands are still here, and many organizations are making efforts to make sure that they are not lost. Building traditional canoes, for example, has seen a recent resurgence with the Waan Aelon in Majol Canoe project in Majuro, as well as the extremely popular outrigger canoe races and the re-enactment of the legendary Jebro race in Ailinglaplap Atoll a couple of years ago. The skills needed to survive such as weaving mats, roofs and walls for their houses, traditional shing techniques, navigation, traditional medicine as well as dances and stories from long ago, are being passed on to the younger generation through the efforts of the National Historic Preservation of ce, the Alele Museum and the Marshallese Cultural Center. This year, Ebeye will host a week of activities in the schools that will culminate with a special ceremony on the of cial Manit Day, Sept 30. Kwajalein will celebrate this occasion as well. The Marshallese Cultural Society will host an Open House at the Cultural Center from 3 to 6 p.m. on Friday. A bigger celebration will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. on Monday at Emon Beach. There will be demonstrations of traditional skills such as re making, weaving, making coconut rope, using coconuts, displays of traditional food and medicine as well as music and food for sale. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy the talent and skills of the Marshallese people.

Annual rain total: 39.37"Annual deviation: -26.56 Call 54700 for updated forecasts or The 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 ROI FUEL/SUPPLY PIER REPLACEMENT, ROI-NAMUR ISLAND, USAKA ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTrequirements 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 200foot-long concrete pier supported by concrete piles. Al ternative 2 would include the construction of a 200-footlong 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 and at the following locations: Alele Public Library, P.O.
