In Massachusetts not long ago, two children died after a candle ignited a plastic bathtub. During Hurricane Floyd, two Maryland boys died after a child dropped a lit candle on his bed. In Pennsylvania, unlawful tenants using a candle started a re that killed four people. In 2001, home candle res killed 190 people and caused more than a quarter million dollars in property damage in the U.S., according to the latest data from the nonpro t National Fire Protection Association. That data also shows that candles started more reported home res in 2001 than at any point since 1980, the rst year of available data. Tragedies like these happen every day, and Kwajalein is not immune. This loss of life and property is staggering, but there is much that you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones. That’s why I’m writing this letter. We, the re service, want you to recognize this danger and learn the ways you can prevent a candle re in your home. Used safely, candles can ll our homes with fragrance and create a calming and welcome mood. They add glow to the holidays and are an important part of religious observances. But what you may not realize is how easily a re can start when a candle is left unattended or left burning while someone sleeps. Like a lit cigarette or a pan on a stove, a burning candle without human supervision is a disaster waiting to happen. Why are we seeing so many candle res? Well for one thing, the popularity of candles is soaring. Americans are buying $2 billion worth of candles every year, and you can now nd candles in seven out of 10 households across the country. A typical manufacturer offers between 1,000 and 2,000 speci c varieties of candles! The most important thing to remember on Kwajalein is that you can make sure candles are used safely in your home. If you use candles in your home, follow this safety advice. • Place candles on stable furniture, in sturdy holders that will catch dripping wax. • Never leave a candle unattended. • If the power goes out, use ashlights for illumination, not candles. • Keep candles away from all things that can catch re. • Place candles on higher furniture, where they won’t be knocked over by children or pets. • Never place lit candles in windows, where they could ignite blinds or curtains. • Don’t allow children or teens to have candles in their There’s an ancient Chinese curse that goes “May you live in interesting times.” A lot of us on this island are old enough to have lived through some very interesting times alright. Like the decade of the ’60s. You know, like the assasinations of President John F. Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.And the Vietnam War and the violent protests against it. The shooting of the students at Kent State. The riots at the Democratic convention in Chicago. The draft card burnings and the ag burnings.The times that saw the murders of Civil Rights workers in Mississippi and police and state troopers beating people in Selma and Montgomery, Al. Remember the dogs and re hoses? It was the height of the Cold War and everyone was sick with worry over a nuclear war with the Russians. We saw the race riots in Watts, Detroit, Newark and other American cities.It was the decade of free love, LSD and the drug culture. It was the hard hats against the hippies. It was “America, love it or leave it.” It was Hanoi Jane. Yeah, you might say we’ve lived through some very interesting times. Well, history is supposed to repeat itself isn’t it? It looks like we have some times rolling right now.There’s the Iraq War, which has been gradually losing support just as the Vietnam War did. The Vietnam anti-war movement started with a few left-wingers and wound up with millions See WELCOME, Page 7

Saturday, Oct. 1, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 31st Sgt. Gwen Lewis is an 18-year Army veteran and comes from the Sergeant Major Academy in Fort Bliss. Top TopNew U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll rstsergeant's priority is team buildingKentucky. She was a fourth-grade teacher before entering the service, has a bachelor’s degree in Religion and is completing course work on Kwajalein for a second bachelor’s degree, this time in Criminal Justice. She said that her hobbies include anything outdoors as well as reading, and admits that her bicycle-riding skills are a bit rusty so that if she doesn’t return a wave it’s out concern for her balance while on two wheels.Lewis wants to get to know members of the community and is open to constructive criticisms and recommendations on how to improve life within USAKA. TBy Nell M. Drumheller EditorThe new top enlisted person on Kwajalein Atoll is 1st Sgt. Gwen Lewis. Lewis is excited to be here. Lewis, an Iowa native, was recruited from the Sergeant Major Academy at Fort Bliss, Texas for her assignment on Kwajalein but had had her eye on the island installation for many years. She said that she had heard of Kwajalein early on in her career and when Space and Missile Defense Command Sgt. Maj. David L. Lady approached her in class with the opportunity to serve on Kwajalein she readily accepted. For Lewis it was a nobrainer, even though she’d never worked in government-owned, contractor-operator community before. Lewis sees her job here as “building a team, but also enforcing the standards. These are the standards we have to live by.” She added that in the military she was taught to “build our units into a cohesive team and that a team can’t leave a member behind.” She sees her biggest challenge as “getting the whole team to understand each other, bridging the gap of misunderstanding.” Lewis wants to integrate that mentality into her role as rst sergeant on Kwajalein. She re ects that this position is more of a diplomat, a helper and a teacher than some other rst sergeant posting around the globe. The U.S. Army Human Resources Command describes the rst sergeant position as the life-blood of the Army. The rst sergeant holds formations, instructs platoon sergeants, advises the commander, and assists in training of all enlisted members. There is a unique relationship of con dence and respect that exists between the rst sergeant and the commander not found at another level within the Army. The rst sergeant is the provider, the disciplinarian, the wise counselor, the tough and unbending foe, the con dant, the sounding board, everything that we need in a leader during our personal success or failure. Lewis has been stationed around the world including Korea, Washington, D.C., Texas and (Photo by Elizabeth Davie)

Saturday, Oct. 1, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3D Research hosts weather, cycloneconference, offers training on Kwaj T r o p i c a l S t o r m “Our forecasters got much needed training in all of the topics and will be able to put that to use to serve Kwajalein.” Topics covered ranged from large-scale phenomena such as El Nino to small-scale phenomena such as typhoons. Also covered were tsunamis, wind damage and storm surge. It is from the JTWC in Hawaii that Kwajalein’s tropical cyclone forecasts are produced, part of the JTWC’s 106-million-square-mile area of responsibility. Typhoon Duty Of cer from the JTWC, Air Force Capt. Caroline Bower, served as an instructor. “The thing I hope gained by attendees is an understanding of the products that are out there to support their local customers,” Bower said. “The end goal is to save lives and property.” While the JTWC provides military and Department of State support, Micronesian forecasters provide similar information to civilians. Through training at the conference, Micronesian forecasters learned how to take JTWC information and put it into their local forecasts in an effort to protect their islands.MBy Mig Owens Assistant editorMeteorolo gists gathered on Kwajalein for a mini tropical cyclone conference, and though planned well before Hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck the Gulf Coast, Tom Wright, 3D Research chief meteorologist, said, “Occurrence of those storms made our conference all the more relevant.” The gathering from Sept. 23 through Thursday was a smaller version of a conference hosted each spring by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and is a rst of its kind. In attendance were representatives from the U.S. National Weather Service in Guam and NWS meteorologists from Majuro, Pohnpei, Chuuk, Kosrae and Palau. “They all experience tropical cyclones much more frequently than we do, so much of this was refresher for them,” Wright said of the attendees from the west. A severe tropical storm struck Kwajalein in 1954. (File photos)4

Saturday, Oct. 1, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 T r o p i c a l S t o r m Reggie White, meteorologist in charge from Majuro, said, “There’s a bridge being built right here – I can now pick up the phone and collaborate between the Paci c Islands. The network we build is needed to work together on how things will affect us and how best to deal with it.” White said he now feels more prepared and can better forecast for the western atolls. “I know now how a storm may affect Ebeye and islands like Ujae and I can ask for advice from my comrades.” Local emergency operations center personnel also bene ted from the conference by attending a brie ng by Chip Guard, warning coordination meteorologist from the Weather Forecast Of ce in Guam. Guard said that on this 100th anniversary of a Category 4 typhoon that killed several hundred people on Ebon, Jaluit, Majuro, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Chuuk, it is important that decision makers understand potential storm damage. The tool given to them at the brie ng provides photos of potential damage for each category of storm. “USAKA [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] sets the condition of readiness [based on the forecast by 3D Research]. We want to make sure emergency managers get warning and see the types of damage – it allows them to better make decisions.” The most likely type of storm to hit Kwajalein, according to Wright, is called an easterly wave. “It is simply an area of disturbed weather within the typical trade wind ow we experience here most of the time,” he said. “These ‘waves’ pass Kwajalein many times per year and are responsible for the real rainy days we get here.” Wright explained that if it rains most of the day or frequently and heavily throughout the day, it was probably an easterly wave. If the rain is accompanied by westerly winds, Kwajalein may be under the in uence of the monsoon trough. He said that monsoon troughs move over Kwajalein a couple of times each year, generally between late summer and early winter. When asked if hurricanes are possible on Kwajalein, Wright said “no, but typhoons are.” “Violent tropical cyclones are called typhoons in the west Paci c, hurricanes in the Atlantic and eastern and central Paci c, and cyclones in the Indian Ocean,” he said. “All three are different names for the same type of storm. We get a tropical storm (winds of 40-74 mph) on average every ve years.” According to Wright, the last was Tropical Storm Talas, which passed about 18 miles to Kwajalein’s southwest in December. “We get a typhoon (winds of 75 mph plus) in our vicinity on average every 10 years. The last was Typhoon Paka which passed 85 miles to the south of Kwajalein in December, 1997. In our records, there is no history of a direct hit by a major typhoon on Kwajalein.” But, Wright said there are anecdotal records of major storms with signi cant storm surges on Kwajalein Atoll in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.“There is no doubt that it will happen again; maybe next week or not for 500 years,” he said. “However, statistics show that we are about three times more likely to experience such a storm during an El Nino year. Of the 15 storms we have on record since 1957, 12, or 80 percent, have occurred during an El Nino.” He added, “We are currently not in an El Nino.” I know now how a storm may affect Ebeye and islands like Ujae and I can ask for advice from my comrades.— Reggie White, Majuro meteorologist "The Marine Department synchrolift shows damage suffered during a storm in December. Strong storm winds from the same storm ripped the wall from this warehouse on Kwajalein.

Saturday, Oct. 1, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 N a t i o n a l F i r e National Fire P r e v e n t i o n W e e k Prevention Week i s O c t 9 1 5 is Oct. 9-15 Kwajalein Fire Department personnel conduct fire fighting training. (File photo) S a v i n g l i v e s Saving lives To recognize stroke, ask three questionsHourglass reportsNational Fire Prevention Week is Oct. 9 – 15. The history of National Fire Prevention Week has it roots in the Great Chicago Fire, which occurred on Oct. 8, 1871. This tragic con agration killed some 300 people, left 100,000 homeless and destroyed more than 17,000 structures. The origin of the re has generated speculation since its occurrence, with the fact and ction becoming blurred over the years. How ever the massive re began, it swiftly took its toll, burning more than 2,000 acres in 27 hours. The city of Chicago quickly rebuilt, however, and within a couple of years residents began celebrating their successful restoration to memorialize the anniversary of the re with festivities. Intending to observe the fire’s anniversary with a more serious commemoration, the Fire Marshals Association of North America, the oldest membership section of the National Fire Protection Association, decided that the 40th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire should be observed not with festivities, but in a way that would keep the public informed about the importance of re prevention. When President Calvin Coolidge proclaimed the first National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 4-10 1925, he noted that in the previous year some 15,000 lives were lost to re in the United States. Calling the loss “startling,” Coolidge’s proclamation stated, “This waste results from the conditions which justify a sense of shame and horror; for the greater part of it could and ought to be prevented... It is highly desirable that every effort be made to reform the conditions which have made possible so vast a destruction of the national wealth”. NFPA continues today to make National Fire Prevention Week a priority and counts on the participation and efforts of tens of thousands of fire and safety professionals, emergency volunteers and other individuals working to reduce the risk of fire and the toll it takes on our society. By Dr. Eric Lindborg Kwajalein Hospital chief medical of cerNow doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: 1. Ask the individual to smile. 2. Ask him or her to raise both arms. 3. Ask the person to speak a simple sentence (coherently) for example, “Is it sunny out today?”If he or she has trouble with any of these tasks, the probability of a stroke is more than 70 percent. Call 911 immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. After discovering that a group of non-medical volunteers could identify facial weakness, arm weakness and speech problems,researchers have urged the general public to learn the three questions. Widespread use of this test could result in prompt diagnosis. In areas where a CT scan is available, currently not available on Kwajalein, early diagnosis could result in early treatment with clot dissolving medication that could prevent brain damage.

There are new standards that major suppliers will follow to make sure the candles and candle holders won’t break, tip over or otherwise malfunction in ordinary use. Extinguish candles carefully, using a long-handled candle snuffer or a soft, directed breath. Be careful not to splatter wax when extinguishing.

Is the protest that took place this past weekend with 100,000 people in Washington, D.C., the start of that kind of movement again? Will it lead to the kind of violence we saw before? I hope not.I remember thinking that if America survived the ’60s, she could survive anything. But we’re sure living in some more of those interesting times aren’t we?The ’60s saw the Civil Rights Act and the War on Poverty.Now, 31 years later, a hurricane in New Orleans shows us just how far we haven’t come since then. The faces we saw stranded and in some cases dying, were mostly poor, elderly and black. I don’t think that racism had anything to do with the appalling response we saw. I think it was plainly and simply a case of incompetence and of cials burying their heads in the sand for the last 30 years, while the levees of that city should have been rebuilt and reinforced. But it did point out the plight of the poor in this country and just how forgotten they really are. They weren’t just on their own during and after Katrina, they are on their own every day. We face a nuclear threat now even more serious than 40 years ago. After all, the Soviets were rational people. For all their saber rattling, they didn’t want a nuclear war any more than we did. They knew there wouldn’t be any winners in such a war. Today, there is the North Korean dictator who looks like a cartoon character but who is ruthless, brutal and watches passively as millions of his people starve to death. I don’t think rational is a word that would apply to him. Then there are the Islamic clerics who run Iran and will no doubt someday develop a nuclear weapon as they thumb their nose at the world. And what happens in Pakistan, where hatred and religious extremism are preached every day, if Islamic radicals take over that country? They already have nuclear weapons. Islamic terrorists don’t care about winners and losers. If they could destroy the world, I think they would call that a victory. That’s how twisted they are.Yes, the Chinese must have drawn upon their centuries of turbulent history to come up with that curse. Maybe it would be a good thing if somebody would wish us just a little boredom right about now.WELCOME, from Page 2 By Elizabeth Davie ReporterIsland gym-goers will soon have a bigger selection of equipment to coose from at Ivey Gym. According to Billy Coley, Adult Athletics supervisor, the new equipment includes a Cybex Pro+ Treadmill, a Life Fitness Cross-trainer/Elliptical, a Cybex Arc Trainer, which is a combination of an elliptical machine and a stepper. It allows a wider range of motion and more exercise options and a Cybex Full a Body Arc Trainer, which is the same as an arc trainer, but also allows the user to target upper body muscles in the workout. “Basically we ordered the new equipment as replacements for existing equipment that has either broken down or was nearing the end of its usage lifecycle. Also, the arc trainers allow us to offer a more varied cardio workout than we have now,” Coley explained. The equipment is scheduled to arrive on the barge next month. “There is a lot of excitement about getting the new equipment. I think that the new equipment will more than live up to expectations. The elliptical and treadmill will offer a few more options to the workouts than the older machines. Plus, I think that patrons will be amazed at the versatility and effectiveness of the arc trainers,” Coley said. The gym offers a wide variety of equipment for a range of workouts. Coley said that for cardio workouts, the gym has treadmills, ellipticals and exercise bikes, both upright and recumbent. There is also freeweight and nautilus-style workout equipment for more strength and toning-type workouts with equipment to focus on every major muscle group in the body, head to toe. A full set of dumbbells, 5–100 pounds, for use in workouts is also available. The gym opens 5:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. and reopens from 3:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 5:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and again at 3:30-8:30 p.m. on Saturday and 7:30 a.m.6:30 p.m. on Sunday and Monday.For more information on the gym, call 52313.

Batman Begins the origins of the Caped Crusader of Gotham City are nally brought to the big screen in this new adaptation of the perennially popular comic-book series. The young Bruce Wayne (Gus Lewis) leads a privileged life as the son of wealthy, philanthropist parents, both of whom stress their commitment to improving the lives of the citizens of crime-ridden Gotham City. After his mother and father are murdered by a mugger, however, Wayne grows into an impudent young man (Christian Bale), full of rage and bent on retribution until encouraged by his childhood sweetheart, Rachel Dawes (Katie Holmes), to search for answers beyond his own personal vendettas. Wayne eventually nds discipline in the Far East under the tutelage of Henri Ducard (Liam Neeson), a member of the mysterious League of Shadows who guides him in the study of martial arts — and the ways in which an ordinary man can hone his senses to an almost superhuman acuity. Fantastic Four a handful of heroes become superheroes under unlikely circumstances in this action drama adapted from the long-running Marvel comic book series. Four astronauts are on a mission aboard a new experimental spacecraft when they are unexpectedly exposed to a massive dose of gamma rays. The accident causes strange and unexpected transformations in all four. Reed Richards (Ioan Gruffudd), top scientist and leader of the mission, can now stretch his body like elastic and is dubbed Mr. Fantastic. His partner and sweetheart, Sue Storm (Jessica Alba), develops the ability to become invisible at will, and becomes known as the Invisible Girl. Her younger brother, Johnny Storm (Chris Evans), is renamed the Human Torch for his new talent of being able to summon up re from his body when he chooses. And Ben Grimm (Michael Chiklis), pilot for the journey, mutates into a monstrous creature with super-human strength and muscles like stone, known as the Thing. Together, the travelers become known as the Fantastic Four, and they set out to use their unusual skills to ght crime, quickly gaining a nemesis in another altered hero who uses his talents for evil, Doctor Doom (Julian McMahon).
