See 50 FEET, Page 3 Volunteers made school Manit Day success L e t t e r t o t h e E d i t o r Letter to the Editor Commentary Fifty feet isn’t what it used to beOn Oct. 1, George Seitz Elementary School students participated in the annual celebration of Manit Day, the Republic of the Marshall Island’s holiday of ‘Customs Day.’ For this event numerous volunteers from Ebeye and Kwajalein came to GSES for the day to teach students about Marshallese customs, traditions and culture. Many people worked diligently for this event by creating sessions for the GSES students to learn about and participate in a particular custom or aspect of Marshallese culture. This year’s sessions included: Marshallese language, music and dance, juk-juk (rice balls), tattooing, weaving, coconut husking, handicrafts and shells, chant, traditional medicine, navigation and astronomy and legends. A huge kommol tata goes out to everyone who helped make this event a success! There are so many people to thank... rst and foremost, the Ebeye parents, experts, and volunteers who shared their knowledge and skills with us; the Junior and Senior High School students who spent extra hours preparing for this event; the more than 30 elementary students who practiced during their lunch hour for nearly three weeks to perform their dance; the teachers, staff and PTO parents who provided food for the day; the Kw ajalein school administrators for their support of this event; Pam Duffy who was an integral part of organizing and facilitating communication with Ebeye volunteers; Wendi Gray for greeting and hosting; Cris Lindborg for sharing resour ces and her knowledge; Eric Nelson for materials and resources; Loretta Childers and Diane Peters in the GSES of ce for all their help; and Kwajalein Police Department Lt. Christi Bowman and staff at dock security for their assistance in signing in our guests! For those of us living on Kwajalein it becomes all too easy to forget that we are living outside the United States as visitors to the RMI. Not only is it appropriate to acknowledge this RMI holiday, but more importantly to celebrate it by learning about the traditions and culture of the people of our host country. Kommol tata and congratulations for putting on another excellent Manit Day celebration! — Angie Sinnott, Ona Moore, Lynn Beckler, Tarah Yurovchak, Cheryl ShieldsI remember a few years ago when the whole metric thing was introduced to the United States. It was pretty confusing for all of us who had been raised thinking in inches and feet and miles per hour. Back home on the ranch we didn’t even know that there was another way of measuring…we all thought the Idaho way was the only way. Now I live on Kwajalein and see that not everyone is up-to-s peed on measurements. The biggest confusion seems to be exactly how far 50 feet is. Perhaps it has something to do with nicotine intake. Smoking is permitted in public areas on Kwajalein only when the smoker is at least 50 feet from an entrance. I don’t walk around with a tape measure so I may have misjudged the distance in some cases but I’m pretty sure that standing in a doorway is not 50 feet away from the entrance. I went outside a few minutes ago to feed my addiction. I purchased some chocolate from the handydandy vending machine, which I may very well be single-handedly supporting. The vending machine is four strides from the entrance to Building 805. A gentleman was leaning against the machine and smoking a cigarette. I thought to myself, self: maybe this man doesn’t know the rules? That seemed unlikely because he was in a Kwajalein Police Department uniform and is paid, to, well, enforce the rules. And then I thought, maybe he doesn’t know how far 50 feet is? I suppose that could be the case. There is a ‘no smoking’ sign posted on the door (again, about 4 feet away), but maybe he couldn’t see it through the cloud of smoke from his cigarette.Almost every time I go to the Sunrise Bakery and purchase some of their yummy delights there are people sitting at the tables in front of the door and smoking. Hmm. I don’t think


Saturday, Oct. 8, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass By Nell M. Drumheller EditorResidential phone service users will notice an increase in fees in phone bills released in November. Corinne Brown, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll / Reagan Test Site, director of Information Management and Information Assurance manager, announced the increase Thursday. The rate will increase from $20 to $25 a month. “The rate was $25 a month from the mid-90s until 2002,” Brown said. “In 2002 the rate was actually decreased to $20 3 New program recognizes safetywith variety of awards, prizes 50 FEET, from Page 2those tables are 50 feet away from the entrance. I can kind of gure out how far 50 feet is by stepping it off. Say if it takes me less than 10 regular steps to reach a point then I haven’t walked 50 feet yet and maybe I should take 30 or so more steps just to be safe. I’m not sure if this is an education issue, perhaps a vision problem (looks like 50 feet to me) or maybe it is all about etiquette. I do know that I would like to be able to walk out of a building and not be forced to walk through a gauntlet of smoke. By Mig Owens Assistant editorSome say safety is its own reward. Now Kwajalein Range Services Team members, who exhibit safe behaviors are eligible for something a bit more tangible thanks to a new safety recognition program from the Environmental, Safety and Health department. According to Jeff Griswold, safety specialist, employees may earn a variety of awards, depending on safe behaviors exhibited, ranging from hats, shirts, ashlights, coolers, mugs and umbrellas to portable CD players, all with the visible KRS logo and slogan on them. That slogan, ‘Kwajalein Recognizes Safety,’ was the brainchild of employees and incorporates the company’s initials. “The purpose of the safety rewards program is to recognize employees who have demonstrated commitment to protecting their own well being and that of their fellow employees through their safe behaviors on the job,” Griswold said. “It is all about caring, ensuring nobody gets hurt and getting the job done safely.” Griswold said that an award or recognition program is part of most progressive companies’ safety programs. It was the collective idea of senior management to implement it at KRS. “It recognizes safe behaviors, keeps safety awareness in the minds of employees and serves as a positive reinforcement incentive,” he said.Anyone can nominate an employee for an award using a nominating form found in SPI 1469 to document the achievement. Most awards require approval by the supervisor, safety representative and department manager. Noteworthy safety achievements are eligible for the President’s Coin Award, according to Griswold.The awards are given on no speci c schedule and all employees are eligible. “The criteria depends on the degree of safe behavior exhibited, ranging from fixing an unsafe condition to a long-term noteworthy commitment to safety such as working for years in a high-risk job without any injuries and assisting fellow employees to work safely,” he explained. The cost of the new program is approximately from $15,000 to $20,000 a year and supplements Safety Bucks, an ‘onthe-spot’ recognition program currently in use. Increased awareness to on-and off-the-job safety is one of the goals of the program, Griswold said, as well as “reduced injuries and the elimination of associated anguish, pain and suffering; recognition of deserving employees that exhibit positive behaviors.” Residential phone rates risinga month.” She added that this is the rst rate change since 2002. According to Brown the increase is based on several things including “an increased number of service calls, increased cost of equipment and increased cost of repairs [including labor],” she said. Brown said, “The command monitors the costs associated with providing telephone service and adjusts the rates as the costs change. Costs include communication circuit costs, telephone equipment costs, billing costs and all associated labor costs.”

BEREAVED JAPANESE MAKELONG PILGRIMAGE TO HONORTHEIR WORLD WAR II DEAD By Mig Owens Assistant editorThe stripes that once adorned Yoshio Inoue’s father’s uniform remain vivid in his memory. Inoue was in the sixth grade when the 40-yearold Japanese lieutenant commander died on Roi during World War II. On Thursday, incense sweetened the air as Inoue and 21 other members of the Marshall and Gilbert Islands Bereaved Families Association read letters to their deceased family members at the Japanese cemetery. A living representation of the ripple effects of the 1944 battles for Kwajalein and Roi-Namur, the group placed food and photos on a white cloth draped over an alter set at the foot of the monument, then prayed and sang to pay homage to their war dead. “I came to visit my father, who was in the Air Force, 24th Regiment on Roi,” Inoue, the group’s leader, said. Writing a letter to his father was not dif cult, he explained, not only because this is his third such visit, but also because he said, “I knew my father – who he was when I was a

Her life’s path and vocation are linked to her father’s death on a ship in the vicinity of Kwajalein. Izumi’s father left the rice elds where he once farmed to go to war when she was 3. During her father’s years of service, Izumi did not see him often, and he died in the Paci c when she was 5. On a visit to a temple in Japan to pray for her deceased father, worshipers there decided that Izumi should marry the temple owner’s son. Because she believed it was a sign from her father, Izumi decided to marry him. When her husband died more than 20 years ago, she decided to become a priestess. Izumi explained that her visit to Kwajalein enables her to feel like she is “one body” with her father. The cemetery on Kwajalein was the rst stop for the association and it was there COL Beverly Stipe, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site commander, greeted them. “We are honored to have you join us here in the Marshall Islands, which has special meaning to both our countries,” Stipe said. “It took a war in a very unique place that caused us to ght each other – but it was also that war that united us in peace.” Visits by the private organization have taken place annually, at the invitation of the Host Nation of ce, since 1975. The group traveled to Roi-Namur Friday and toured both islands during their stay. “We are really grateful to the U.S. Army and all the people on Kwajalein who make it possible for us to come here and who take care of the monuments for us,” Inoue said. “We built the Kwajalein memorial to make people think of peace.” Inoue said that on his rst visit to Roi-Namur, he was amazed to see that Americans had built a memorial there. “It made me think that even to Americans, it was such a dif cult and painful battle that they build a memorial for the Japanese.” Greg Dvorak, PhD candidate and visiting fellow from Tokyo University, served as the group’s interpreter on a trip sponsored by the Marshallese Cultural Center. He is a ‘Kwaj Kid’ who has spent a total of 10 years in Japan. Dvorak said that many members of the group are people who lost relatives in the higher military ranks. Because their relatives were in the Marshall Islands at least a year, they received letters. Though the letters were censored because the islands were a top-secret Japanese military base, they told of their health and offered a few details. “They died in a very mysterious place in a war,” Dvorak explained, “and were assumed dead for seven months to a year later. Especially for the older generation, who lived in Imperial Japan, death was an eternal thing – soldiers became sort of spirits enshrined as eternal ghosts…this is like a cemetery to them.” More than 60 years after the war, children and siblings of the deceased Japanese continue to make their pilgrimage to the site of their loved ones’ death. “When they come back, they want to be with their family,” Dvorak said, “to update them on the family – they’re coming and delivering the news to them. It’s fall in Japan, so they brought maple leaves to bring autumn to them.” Dvorak said that the group was extremely grateful to Stipe and the U.S. Army for allowing them access to Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. “They said this was the best time they have ever had in Kwajalein Atoll, with the warmest welcome, and they were deeply moved and appreciative,” he said. “As a result of this kindness, some even expressed that they nally felt satis ed that their beloved brothers, fathers, and uncles rested in peace here on Kwajalein.”

(Photo by Elizabeth Davie)By Dan Frazier Kwajalein School superintendentWith a month and a half gone, it’s of cial: the school year is off to a smooth start. Our new arrivals on island are adapting well to school and our returning students are making great gains. So you might think that the George Seitz Elementary teachers are settling back for “business as usual.” However, this is not the case. Our teachers have taken a pledge to raise the reading achievement level of our students. Our goal states, “All students will increase their reading comprehension skills as applied across the curriculum.”Essentially, what we mean by that goal is that we want our students to be able to apply a variety of reading strategies to comprehend printed material. To achieve our goal, we have developed a three-part plan. The rst part of our plan was to implement full day-kindergarten this year. By giving our early learners more attention early on, we intend for our students to have stronger pre-reading skills before they enter rst grade. e ff ort f or mo d e l e d rea d in g Mo d e le i s simp ly a d u l ts rea d in g a l ou d to t h dents. Whe n a dults r e a d a loud to ch i l dren, they show how to read expressively, and they help students comprehend the plot of a story. Moreover, students of all ages gain greater love for reading when they see adults enjoying the pleasures of reading themselves. Modeled reading is the rst step toward developing a “balanced literacy” program within an elementary school. Throughout the year, we will be holding special guest reader events. We encourage the public to come to school and read to our students whenever they have the opportunity.

Saturday, Oct. 8, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7Adventurer, explorer Christopher Columbus wasman of intrigue, mystery Hourglass reportsAfter ve centuries, Christopher Columbus remains a mysterious and controversial gure who has been variously described as one of the greatest mariners in history, a visionary genius, a mystic, a national hero, a failed administrator, a naive entrepreneur, and a ruthless and greedy imperialist. Columbus’ enterprise to nd a westward route to Asia grew out of the practical experience of a long and varied maritime career, as well as out of his considerable reading in geographical and theological literature. He settled for a time in Portugal, where he tried unsuccessfully to enlist support for his project, before moving to Spain. After many dif culties, through a combination of good luck and persuasiveness, he gained the support of the Catholic monarchs, Isabel and Fernando. The widely published report of his voyage of 1492 made Columbus famous throughout Europe and secured for him the title of Admiral of the Ocean Sea and further royal patronage. Columbus, who never abandoned the belief that he had reached Asia, led three more expeditions to the Caribbean. But intrigue and his own administrative failings brought disappointment and political obscurity to his nal years. A sailor on board the Pinta sighted land early in the morning of Oct. 12, 1492, and a new era of European exploration and expansion began. The next day, the 90 crew members of Columbus’ three-ship eet ventured onto the Bahamian island of Guanahan, ending a voyage begun nearly 10 weeks earlier in Palos, Spain. The history of Columbus Day: • In 1792 a ceremony organized by the Society of St. Tammany, or Colombian Order was held in New York City honoring Columbus and the 300th anniversary of the landing. • On Oct. 12, 1866 out of the pride for their native son, the Italian population of New York organized the rst celebration of the discovery of America. • In 1869 when Italians in San Francisco celebrated Oct. 12 they called it Columbus Day. • In 1892 President Benjamin Harrison proclaimed the 400th anniversary of the event. • In 1905 Colorado became the rst state to observe a Columbus Day. • In Since 1920 the day has been celebrated annually. • In 1937 President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed every Oct. 12 as Columbus Day. • In 1968 President Johnson declared it a federal public holiday on the second Monday in October.

Carly (Elisha Cuthbert) and her boyfriend, Wade (Jared Padalecki), have hit the road with a handful of their friends to attend a championship college football game; tagging along with them are Carly’s bratty friend Paige (Paris Hilton, Wade’s trouble-making brother Nick (Chad Michael Murray), and Blake (Robert Ri’chard), Paige’s latest boy toy. While camping out for the night, the gang makes the mistake of getting on the wrong side of a mysterious local redneck, and the next morning they discover that Wade’s car no longer works. As the others continue on to the big game, Carly and Wade make their way into the closest town, Ambrose, and discover it’s all but deserted, except for a local tourist attraction, the House of Wax. Cinderella Man The true story of an athlete who achieved his greatest success against the most daunting odds of his life is brought to the screen in this historical drama. In the 1920s, James Braddock (Russell Crowe) from Bergen, NJ, was a promising contender in professional boxing; he had strength, spirit, and tenacity, but the combination of a serious hand injury and a 1929 defeat in a bout with light heavyweight champ Tommy Loughran sent his career into a serious tailspin. As Braddock’s career in the ring dried up, the Great Depression put a stake through the heart of America’s economy, and Braddock found himself working at the New York docks for pitiful wages as he tried to support his wife, Mae (Rene Zellweger), and three children. Desperate for money, Braddock turned to his former trainer and manager Joe Gould (Paul Giamatti), who was unexpectedly able to scare up a bout for him, battling John Grif n at Madison Square Garden While conventional wisdom had it that Braddock was too old, out of shape, and out of practice to have any chance of winning, he defeated Grif n, and continued beating his opponents with a powerful left hook that had been intensi ed by years of punishing dock work. In a nation desperate for good news, Braddock’s surprising comeback became a tonic to struggling workers and unemployed people, and all eyes were on Braddock when in 1935 he took on powerful heavyweight champion.The following 10 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.
