For more than ve years the Ennubirr Children Christmas Fund, nanced and staffed with donations by American civilian workers and military personnel, has hosted this event. I am a former Ennibburr Island resident, and along with May Lautiej and Helitha Aneo Erakrik gave a donation to Ennibburr Children Christmas Fund President Tony Stephen. We know it’s such a small amount of money that we’ve given, but we want to share because sharing is the back bone of the Marshallese custom. We really do hope that it will help a lot for the Ennibburr children Christmas party on R oi-Namur at the Tradewinds Theater Dec. 12. We, the adults, learned many lessons, good lessons about life and Marshallese customs from our grandparents. Younger children and grandchildren do not have the bene ts of the same upbringing we got from our grandparents. To teach them these values, we have to show them with our actions. Ennibburr Island, like many of the other Marshall Atolls, needs help. The best help they will ever receive is the legacy of helping and caring for one another that we teach and hand down to our children. We teach them this by allowing them to see us helping and caring for each other right now. In Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me for such is the kingdom of heaven.” So again my fellow Marshallese friends, let us get up, get in and get involved so we can reach the unreachable children. — Ano LautiejMarshallese urged to share values with their children You might not like the war in Iraq. You might not like that so many Americans have died there. You might not like that so much money has been spent there when we need so many things in our own country. But you know what? We just have to deal with it and play the cards that are on the table. Because for some tragic reason, most of the worId’s oil lies under the sand of the troubled Middle East. The Western world’s economies are dependent on that oil to keep going. Iraq happens to sit on top of one of the largest proven oil reserves on Earth. The thought of what would happen if a murderous radical like Al Zarqawi gained control of Iraqi oil is terrifying. But even if he was eliminated tomorrow, there’s a hundred Al Zarqawis waiting to take his place. What if Iranian hard liners gained in uence over the Iraqi government, which many around the world fear may happen when the U.S. leaves. They could just turn off the oil spigot to the Western economies. What kind of a disaster would that be? Oil producing nations hold all the cards as it is. And it’s not just countries in the Middle East. Venezuela supplies the United States with 15 percent of our oil. It is one of the four top oil producing countries in the world and has been called the Saudi Arabia of Latin America. Right now, that country is controlled by strongman Hugo Chavez, who is not exactly on good terms with the U.S. government and has threatened to stop oil shipments to the United States. Oil imported from Mexico accounts for another 15 percent of U.S. oil consumption. Mexican-U.S. relations are strained over illegal immigration and other matters. They will have a presidential election there soon and a new president may use an oil embargo as a threat against us. Saudi Arabia is ruled by an aging royal family who won’t be able to keep control in that country forever. Who knows what might happen when they no longer have power. Some other nations we get oil from are Nigeria, Ecuador and Russia. In addition, Russia supplies 33 percent of Europe’s oil. I wouldn’t call any of those countries rock solid and stable. The bottom line is the United States doesn’t have a secure, dependable oil supply anywhere in the world. The surging Chinese economy is gobbling up almost as much oil as we are right now and will some day be the largest energy consumer on Earth. The competition for oil is becoming intense. As saddened as I am about being in Iraq, I disagree with those who say we should get out now. We have to maintain the security of the oil elds there and in the whole region. That’s what really needs to be accomplished to make the U.S. more secure. At least more economically secure. If the United States left Iraq in a vacuum, it could become a catastrophe. An economic catastrophe.


Saturday, Dec. 3, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassHere today, gone tomorrrow 3Bike theft can be costly, aggravating By Elizabeth Davie ReporterIt is not an uncommon thing to walk outside intending to go somewhere only to nd your bike mysteriously missing. Not only is it a potential hassle to be without a bike, but it can also be costly to purchase another one if the stolen one is not found. Island resident Stacy Wang discovered her bandnew bike missing from outside her bachelor quarters earlier this month. “When I reported it they [Kwajalein Police Department] told me good luck, and that they would call me if they found it, and I was to call them if I found it,” she said. To her surprise, a friend found her bike nine days later. “Julia found it, locked with a paddle lock around the spoke of the back tire and the chain. It was on the back side of the Coral, someone was obviously using it.” “I had her watch it while I went and called KPD. Once they got there, they asked me if I was sure it was my bike, I told them yes, and showed them proof of registration. They tipped the bike upside down to check the serial number to match. And then they cut the lock off,” Wang said.According to Capt. Jeff Mullin, KPD, approximately from ve to 10 bikes are reported stolen a week. What should a resident do if they nd themselves in this situation? If a resident’s bike is missing Mullin’s advice is to, “Make an attempt, especially if the bike wasn’t secured, to locate it. After looking with no results, then come to the KPD to file a report.” KPD will not take a stolen-bike report until the bike has been missing for at least 48 hours, according to Mullin. At that time, the owner of the bike should report it to KPD where the missing-bike information will be put in a database. Residents should contact KPD if they nd the bike so KPD can take it out of the database. “If you see someone riding your bike, call the KPD immediately with a description of the person, the direction they are headed and if known, a name. Do not intervene yourself,” Mullin said. According to Mullin the penalty for theft of a bike is either under Hawaii Code, theft second degree, $300 or more, theft third degree, $100 to $299, or theft fourth degree, less than $100, depending on the value of the bike. Second degree theft is a Class C felony, third degree theft is a Class A misdemeanor and fourth degree theft is a petty misdemeanor. Under the Marshall Islands Revised Code, it is punishable under petty larceny, $50 or under and grand larceny, $50 and more. Mullin also said for a bike to be taken to Ebeye, a property clearance control form, SLEC Form 004, must be presented to Dock Security Checkpoint personnel clearing the property as purchased new at Macy’s West or used from an individual on island. This process leaves less chance of a stolen bike being transported to Ebeye. Mullin’s advice to all residents is, “Ensure you register your bike and keep the store receipt and the registration record, but most importantly, lock your bike up.” Wang echoes his advice by saying, “Lock your bikes! I think if mine would have been it probably wouldn’t have been taken.” Taking the time to lock bikes when unattended could result in fewer thefts.

Today, with tools such as meteorological rockets, predicting weather as far up as 300,000 feet is becoming an exact science. A met rocket was launched from Kwajalein Thursday. The purpose of a met rocket, according to Tom Wright, chief meteorologist for 3D Research/Reagan Test Site Weather, is to measure meteorological parameters in the upper atmosphere. “The rocket carries an in atable sphere which is deployed at apogee, approximately 100-115 kilometers. The sphere is then tracked by radar. Horizontal wind data are obtained by tracking positional changes in the sphere as it descends and density data are derived from changes in vertical acceleration. Other parameters, such as temperature and pressure, are then derived from the altitude and density values,” he said. The rocket is 94 inches long and 4.5 inches wide and weighs 78 pounds. The deployable Mylar sphere is 1 meter in diameter and weighs about 1/3 pound. According to the weather station, the peak speed for the met rocket is approximately 4,700 mph about 2.5 seconds into the ight just as the solid rocket fuel is exhausted. “Our standard weather balloons only reach about 100,000 feet but met rockets can collect data up to approximately 300,000 feet.” Wright said “The data we get from a met rocket, when combined with the information from our normal soundings, can give us vertical pro les of temperature, wind, pressure and density from the surface to approximately 300,000 feet.” Some people may wonder why anyone would want to know the weather 300,000 feet up. “We meteorologists don’t really need to know the weather much above the tropopause, the top of the layer of atmosphere that we live in – usually at about 50-55,000 feet, but the agencies that execute missions out here like to know what kind of environment their equipment is ying through – whether it be an incoming RV [re-entry vehicles] or a locally-launched rocket heading out,” Wright said How often a met rocket is launched depends on mission requirements. “We do met rockets for every GMD [Ground-based Midcourse Defense] launch and occasionally by themselves as practice or for other missions. There will be one associated with FT-1 later this month,” Wright said. A GMD launch is the interceptor launche from Meck Island done for the GMD mission by Missile Defense Agency. “Met rockets are a scaled-down version of our regular missions, so it’s a great opportunity to get some practice in,” he added. According to Wright, Thursday’s launch was successful and went off pretty much on time. However, after the payload was deployed, the sphere failed to in ate and thus the radars were not able to acquire or track it. “We got no data from the launch and so the end result is that this attempt was unsuccessful,” he said. The range is working to schedule another practice met rocket before FT-1. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie)


Saturday, Dec. 3, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 Army says news media is creating false impression with dated footage Old imagesBy Kathleen T. Rhem American Forces Press ServiceLeaders at the U.S. detention facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for enemy combatants wonder why media outlets continue to use outdated images of defunct facilities to accompany news reports about the base. Media stories about the detention facility, or the men held at Guantanamo Bay, routinely are accompanied by photographs or video footage shot at Camp X-Ray, a temporary facility hastily erected to deal with enemy combatants captured in the rst days of operations in Afghanistan. Images of orange-suited detainees blindfolded and handcuffed and kneeling in a line inside a chain-link enclosure have become iconic.The problem is that Camp XRay closed in early 2002 and hasn’t been used since. Since then, detainees have been housed in more modern, comfortable facilities, and improvements continue.“I’d like to think it’s for convenience” that media outlets still use footage that is more than three years old to portray the camp “rather than an attempt to try to portray the camp other than how it is today,” Army Brig. Gen. John Gong, deputy commander of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, said in an interview. “More recent footage better depicts what it’s like here today,” he added. Camp X-Ray’s concrete slabs and open-air chain-link enclosures had been compared to dog runs. But of cials stress Camp X-Ray was a hastily built structure to deal with a rapidly changing situation in the war on terrorism. “It’s important to note that Camp X-Ray was thrown up in a matter of weeks,” Army Lt. Col. John Lonergan, commander of 1st Battalion, 18th Cavalry Regiment, said. Lonergan’s unit provides security at Guantanamo Bay.The facilities there were never meant to be used for long-term detention, he said. Engineers began construction on Camp Delta, which replaced Camp X-Ray in April 2002, shortly after detainees began arriving.Today the formerly occupied Camp X-Ray looks like a ghost town. Weeds and brush have overgrown the enclosures. Heavy rains spawned by three hurricanes at the island base this year have spurred growth of lush greenery throughout the defunct camp. Now the camp looks like it’s been swallowed by a jungle.Detainees in Camp 4, a part of Camp Delta and the least restrictive of the base’s detention facilities, live in communal 10-man bays and have nearly full-time access to exercise yards. Gong said of cials with the American Correctional Association have looked at Camp Delta and say the facility is in accordance with the standard for modern prisons in the United States. Camp 5, the newest facility, is designed after state-of-the-art correctional institutions in the United States. Camp 6, to be completed in summer 2006, will be even more modern. When Camp 6 is completed, it and Camp 5 will house 95 percent of the roughly 500 detainees held here now, Gong said. Media outlets have ample opportunity to update their imagery, Gong said. Since June, more than 40 media agencies have visited the base. “We welcome people to come in,” he said.A Soldier surveys the area just outside Camp Delta during a detainee escape exercise in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Saturday, Dec. 3, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassStudents learn childcare ropes at Youth Services 6 Brandon Owens practices the ne art of diapering at the babysitting class conducted by Youth Services Nov. 26. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie) WANTED, a few good babysitters By Elizabeth Davie ReporterParents looking for a quali ed babysitter now have a few more options thanks to the babysitter training put on by Child and Youth Services Nov. 26. Six participants spent the day learning how to be a babysitter from Amy Brouwer, CYS training specialist. Brouwer, who has four and a half years’ experience at a child development center, a teaching certification, five years’ classroom teaching experience and a degree in Early Childhood Education, went over many aspects of babysitting with the youth who attended. To start the day, Brouwer explained several qualities of a good babysitter such as being dependable, being mature and showing good manners. The rest of the morning was spent learning about care and safety. Mealtime, bathing, sleeping and diaper changing were a few of the things discussed in detail. “Never leave a child while you are changing the diaper. Keep your hand on the child at all times. If you drop something, pick up the baby. Do not let go of the child for even a second,” she instructed. The want-to-be babysitters even changed diapers and pretended to feed baby dolls. Youth were also recminded to set up guidelines with their parents. Brouwer said youth and parents should agree on how many times a week they can work, if they can work on school nights, how old the children need to be and how late they can baby-sit. Later on in the day Brouwer went over what toys, games and food is appropriate for what age. She also talked a little bit about play time. “Set up the night so you have a variety of things planned for the children to do, but you also have to be exible to do the things they enjoy. Also try to be fair if there is more then one child. Do something they all like or take turns and let each child pick something to do,” she told the participants. Basic first aid was taught to the participants by Michelle Barnett of the Kwajalein Fire Department. This training is given twice a year. The next session will be in June. Everyone who completes the class is given a certificate from the Red Cross.Brouwer explained that teens must be 13 and in seventh grade or higher to be on the CYS referral list, but not to take the class. The list is updated as each participant in the training turns 13. The list is available at the Child Development Center. “Parents may pick up one referral list at a time and have to sign a Statement of Understanding before they are given the list,” Brouwer said.“The teens learn a great deal about the nitty-gritty business of babysitting. I think that if they apply themselves and make an effort to use what we teach them, they will be a ‘hot commodity’ in the Kwaj-babysitter scene,” Brouwer said. For more information on babysitter training or the referral list, call Brouwer at 53610.


Saturday, Dec. 3, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7 Let’s eat Food class teaches safe preparation See FOOD, Page 16By Nell M. Drumheller EditorPat Zurich is cautious about cleanliness. He takes hand washing seriously. Zurich is the Kwajalein Range Services food safety inspector. In addition to inspecting food for public consumption within the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, Zurich teaches a food safety course to educate people planning on cooking for private function and club activities. During the 90-minute course students learn how to wash their hands, the dangers of food-borne illnesses, proper heating temperatures for potentially hazardous foods and proper holding temperatures. In August 2004 COL Beverly Stipe, USAKA commander, signed Memorandum 30-22, USAKA/Reagan Test Site Private Organization Food Sales Fund Raising Policy. The document states that a KRS food safety trained person must be physically present during the sale of food for private organizations. Taking the food safety course prepares a person for that responsibility. Personal hygiene While hand washing may seem like a no brainer; improper procedures don’t get the job done. Detailed hand washing instructions are in a handout provided by Zurich. In the rst place, a readily available hand washing facility must be on site of any food sales event. The site must have running warm water, liquid soap and single-service towels. Zurich said “You can use an insulated container, with a free ow spigot that is lled with warm water. Place a bucket under the spigot to catch the water.” Proper hand washing procedures include using liquid soap, warm water and washing exposed hand and arm surfaces. According to Zurich it’s the rubbing and running water that makes the difference. Hands should be lathered and washed for at least 20 seconds and should be rinsed from the arm down, with the water running down over the ngers. Zurich advises to pat hands and arms dry with a single-use towel and to use the towel to turn off the water, as touching the sink area will recontaminate. According to the handout, anyone handling or serving food should wash their hands after going to the bathroom; after eating, drinking or smoking; after touching their face or hair; after handling soiled dishing or garbage and whenever hands may have become soiled. Anyone handling ready-to-eat foods must wear clean, disposable non-latex gloves. Hands must be washed before putting on the gloves and since gloves can transmit foodborne germs they must be changed whenever the person wearing them changes tasks. Sanitizing dishes, utensils Zurich said all multi-use food preparation equipment including pots, pans, dishes, knives, spatulas, cutting boards/surfaces and other utensils must be properly cleaned and sanitized before and during use. Required steps are: washed in clean, hot water with soap; rinsed in clean water and soaked in a sanitizing solution for at least one minute. One method of making a sanitizing solution is 2 tablespoons of unscented chlorine bleach per gallon of water. Items should be air-dried on a clean, sanitized surface and should not be dried with a towel as towels transport germs. Utensils must be replaced by cleaned, rinsed, sanitized utensils every two hours during service, or as tasks change. Cross-contamination happens when a surface or tool is used for more than one task such as raw meat and vegetables so tools and surfaces must be cleaned and sanitized between uses. Cooking, holding potentially hazardous foods Potentially hazardous foods include meats, poultry, seafood, milk/dairy products, cut melons, eggs/egg products, raw seed sprouts, tofu and cooked potatoes or rice. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has recommended that sprouts not be eaten raw due to the high probability of E. coli bacteria on them. According to Zurich, all potentially hazardous foods should be prepared only on the date of the event, the date it will be sold. Zurich provides a chart of internal temperatures for cooking potentially hazardous food. • Poultry 165 F • Stuffed foods such as casseroles, etc. 165 F • Ground meat including hamburgers, pork and sh 160 F • Pork, ham, sausage and bacon 155 F • Eggs, yolk must be hard 155 F • Roast beef, seafood, lamb, veal and shell sh 145 F • Cooked: rice, vegetable, potatoes 140 F Zurich said that if in doubt about the proper temperature, cook it to an internal temperature of 165 F. Once food is cooked, the internal temperature of the hot potentially hazardous food must be held at 140 F or higher. The handout states that proper equipment must be used to maintain the holding temperature. Zurich advises to preheat holding equipment to ensure it is hot when the food is put in it. Cold potentially hazardous food must be held at an internal temperature of 40 F or lower. A food thermometer must be used to ensure food is at the proper temperature. The thermometer must be clean and sanitized and inserted into the thickest part of the food. According to the handout, the temperature danger zone for potentially hazardous food is between 40 and 140 F. Potentially hazardous food that is out of the proper temperature for more than an hour must be discarded. Food must be checked for proper holding temperature every two hours and the information on each product will be put in a log, according the handout. The log must be kept at the food event. Fruits, vegetables All vegetables must be thoroughly washed before being cut, combined with other ingredients, cooked, served or offered as a ready-to-eat food. Zurich said all vegetables and fruits served ready to eat in the public dining facilities are washed under

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Just Like Heaven A couple who live on different sides of the divide of life and death discover just how many boundaries love can cross in this romantic comic fantasy. Elizabeth (Reese Witherspoon) is a hardworking and dedicated medical resident who, after 20 hours on duty, is heading home when she falls asleep at the wheel of her car and is involved in a fatal auto accident. Several weeks later, a man named David (Mark Ruffalo) takes over the lease on Elizabeth’s apartment, but he discovers that she hasn’t quite vacated the building. Elizabeth’s body may be dead, but her spirit is still quite lively, and her ghost is insisting that the apartment is still hers...and that she wants him to move out. David brings in Darryl (Jon Heder), an eccentric man who claims to have psychic powers, to help sweep Elizabeth’s spirit out of the apartment, but she refuses to budge, certain that she can’t be completely dead, despite all evidence to the contrary. The Cave Terror lurks deep beneath the surface of the Earth in this thriller. While on a dig in a Romanian forest, a group of scientists make a startling nd — they nd a huge abbey, dating back to the 13th Century, which was built over the entrance to a massive network of subterranean caves. Eager to learn what lurks within the caves, the scientists discover to their peril that a large part of the cave system is under water. Undeterred, the remaining scientists hire a team of American spelunkers who are trained in exploring underwater caves, led by brothers Jack (Cole Hauser) and Tyler (Eddie Cibrian). Armed with new high-tech scuba gear that allows them to stay under water for a full 24 hours, Jack, Tyler, and the rest of their crew dive in to investigate the caves, but a mishap traps them in a cavern beneath the surface, and they soon discover they are not alone, as strange and bloodthirsty creatures make their presence known.Movie ratings G = general audiences, all ages admitted PG = parental guidance suggested, some material may not be suitable for children.
