What a year it was. There were oods, tornadoes and so many hurricanes it seemed like theyÂ’d never stop coming. The city of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast were just about wiped out and many are still suffering. Economic woes plagued the nation as the price of oil and gasoline went through the roof and our families and friends in the states felt the pinch in their wallets. It seemed bad luck just kept slamming the country. We kept hearing how good the economy was, but there were many more layoffs and bene t cuts. Too many good American men and women were lost in Afghanistan and Iraq. It seemed there wasnÂ’t much good news from that part of the world. Having learned the lesson of Vietnam, even though many donÂ’t agree with the war in Iraq, everyone supports the troops and wishes them well. May they all be safely home before the next year is over. Terrorism is still the biggest threat the world has known. Maybe 2006 will be the year people everywhere come together to defeat it. Americans showed what theyÂ’re made of when they opened their hearts, pocketbooks and in some cases their homes, to the victims of Katrina. The outpouring of generosity was awesome. Even a penny pincher like me sent in a buck or two. Personally, I had a bad time with a heart attack. I was humbled to nd out how many people were concerned about me and wished me well. That's almost worth having a heart attack. We saw many friends leave the island and we know many who are going to leave. As long as IÂ’ve been here, thatÂ’s always the worst part of living on Kwaj. We meet great people only to see them go. But sometimes new friends arrive to ll the void. Some of us lost loved ones this year, some got married, some had new babies. Life ends and life goes on. Maybe this year, some gured out whatÂ’s really important in their lives.

I hope people who are hurting physically or mentally found healing and comfort this year and if not, the courage to continue on until they do. Maybe some found God or maybe He found them. Either way, HeÂ’s a great friend to have in good times or bad. There have been better and worse years than 2005. But whatever happened, itÂ’s time to close the books on it. Another year of our lives is gone and another one is coming. May we all have a very happy, prosperous, healthy and peaceful 2006.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2005 3Meeting challenges By Donna Miles American Forces Press Service Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld heralded 2005 as a year of extraordinary contributions by the U.S. military and looked toward the new year as an opportunity to continue building on those efforts and transforming the military into a 21st-century force. During a recent interview with the Pentagon Channel and the American Forces Press Service, Rumsfeld cited the array of missions the military carried out during an exceptionally busy year. These include humanitarian efforts following the tsunami in South Asia on Dec. 26, 2004, the devastating Oct. 8 earthquake in Pakistan and hurricanes Katrina and Rita along the Gulf coast in August and September. While supporting these missions, the U.S. military played a key role in liberating more than 50 million people in Afghanistan and Iraq and enabling both countries to hold historic free elections, he said. Â“I appreciate this opportunity to tell the men and women in uniform in the United States and all across the globe what a truly amazing year ... you have had (and) what you have done,Â” Rumsfeld said in his message to the troops. These contributions have come through exceptional sacri ce by the military, he said, noting that many servicemembers will be away from their families and loved ones during the upcoming holidays. Â“As you go through a period where you are away from family and friends, know that the country is grateful, that we recognize the sacri ce that you make, and we wish you all a very merry Christmas,Â” Rumsfeld said. Â“And thank you for what you do.Â” The secretary made it clear where he believes the U.S. military stands. Â“We have the nest military on the face of the earth. We also have the nest military that we have ever had,Â” he said. Â“No one was drafted, no one was conscripted, no one was forced to do anything they didnÂ’t want to do,Â” he continued. Â“They stood up and said, Â‘Send me.Â’Â” He cited U.S. servicemembersÂ’ impact in South Asia in the tsunami, in Pakistan after its devas-Rumsfeld lauds 2005 successes V i s i t t h e D e f e n s e D e p a r t m e n t Â’ s W e b s i t e Â“ A m e r Visit the Defense DepartmentÂ’s Web site Â“Ameri c a S u p p o r t s Y o u Â” a t ica Supports YouÂ” at w w w a m e r i c a s u p p o r t s y o u www.americasupportsyou. m i l mil , t h a t s p o t l i g h t s w h a t A m e r i c a n s a r e d o i n g i n that spotlights what Americans are doing in s u p p o r t o f U S m i l i t a r y m e n a n d w o m e n s e r v i n g support of U.S. military men and women serving a t h o m e a n d a b r o a d at home and abroad.

This Â“has to be noble work,Â” the secretary said. Â“(Servicemembers) know it is noble work. They are proud of it and they should be.Â” In the year ahead, the U.S. military will continue its progress in Iraq and Afghanistan and stand by, ready to lend its unique capabilities to natural disasters and other extraordinary events, he said. At the same time, the military will continue positioning itself to meet future challenges, he said. Â“We have to ... continue transforming this great institution so we can shift our weight more toward irregular warfare and the kinds of challenges we are likely to meet in the 21st century,Â” he said. This includes re ning the militaryÂ’s ability to contribute to homeland defense and to protect Americans from the threat of weapons of mass destruction in the hands of terrorists and rouge states, he said. It also means continuing to move beyond the Cold War-era military structure and to extend the expeditionary qualities already in the Navy, Air Force and Marines to the Army. Â“We have to continue to make adjustments that will enable our military to be swift and agile and deployable,Â” Rumsfeld said. As the Army increases its number of combat brigades in the year ahead, it also will continue bolstering capabilities within the National Guard and Reserve, the secretary said. Â“We are going to see that the Reserve brigades have ... the equipment they need and that they are staffed up and trained up,Â” he said. While transforming the force and increasing its capabilities, Rumsfeld said the focus will remain on the militaryÂ’s most critical building block: its men and women in uniform. Â“We have to continue to see that we are able to attract and retain the kinds of talent that we need,Â” he said.

The jebta performed for hours at a time stopping only in between songs. Many of the women in the jebta carry fans with them as they sing and dance to help cool them off. The churches were lled all day with performers and observers. The Kwaj jebta, made up of Job Corps students, host students, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll workers and residents also preformed. Many Kwaj residents also traveled to Ebeye to witness the event. Women handed out hand-made gifts to people who came to watch. After the jebta preformed they also showered the audience with gifts. Â“It was a unique experience, something I have never done before,Â” said Sandy Miller, Kwaj resident.One of the many churches where the jebta danced. Onlookers even crowded in windows to see the action.
Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6If citizens of the Republic of the Marshall Islands have questions or concerns about their employment or relationship with the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, they can get answers from Noda Lojkar.Lojkar is the RMI representative to USAKA as well as acting Ombudsman for RMI citizens. Â“I act as the of cial liaison between the government of the RMI and USAKA. Among my duties are representing the RMI at Compact-mandated coordination meetings like the Community Relations Councils and Joint Labor Relations Board; acting as the Ombudsman for the RMI citizens that are employees of USAKA contractors; processing RMI government paperwork to include birth certi cates, death certi cates and pet permits; and coordinating USAKA-related activities with the government of the RMI,Â” he said. Lojkar has been in this position since October. He replaced Hiram Malolo who is now the Assistant Secretary of Education on Ebeye. Â“My position title is the same and my duties are the same with the exception of the Ombudsman tasks, which are new to this position,Â” Lojkar said. Â“Our Marshallese employees need to know that they have an advocate with the commanderÂ’s ear. The RMI RepresentativeÂ’s position with Ombudsman duties ensures that USAKA takes into consideration the needs of our 1,400 Marshallese employees, giving them a voice in the CommandÂ’s decision-making process,Â” said Maj. Jeff Klein, USAKA Host NationÂ’s chief.Lojkar has been working for USAKA, rst as a government contractor in the Host Nation Of ce, since 2000.Â“In 2004, the RMI governmentÂ’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs concluded an agreement with USAKA By Nell M. Drumheller Editorto assume responsibility for the position and consolidate it with the RMI Representatives position. "After a year-long transition period, I assumed full-time RMI Representative duties in October,Â” Lojkar said. Issues brought before Lojkar may cover a vast number of subjects. Â“I handle a wide variety of issues Â— everything from managing the daily commute list from Ebeye to processing requests to visit Bigej to voicing the concerns of the RMI employees to the commander. It is a very diverse and demanding job, but I nd it very rewarding,Â” Lojkar said. Lojkar works for the RMI Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Â“My immediate supervisor is the Secretary of Foreign Affairs,Â” he said. As Ombudsman, Lojkar may be called upon to mediate a problem between an RMI employee and USAKA. Â“I try to contact everyone that is a stakeholder in the process and work to resolve the issue. Most problems are due to miscommunication between the parties involved. The differences in our cultures sometimes create problems and lead to misunderstandings. I nd that 90 percent of the time, once we explain the problem, people on both sides of the issue can come to a mutual understanding,Â” he said. According to Klein, Lojkar ts well with the position. Â“Noda is extraordinarily quali ed for the position. He is well-respected by both the Marshallese and American communities living on Kwajalein Atoll. NodaÂ’s experience living in the United States gives him a special insight to the dichotomies that exist between two very different cultures. It allows him to act as a mediator, reducing the friction caused by misunderstandings and misperceptions that invariably exist between the communities. His strength as an intelligent, generous, and understanding man makes him a leader in the eyes of all,Â” Klein said. Â“I was chosen for this position because of my long-time relationship with USAKA, my understanding of American culture and nally, my close familial ties to Ebeye and Kwajalein Atoll. It is an honor to serve the people of the RMI and Kwajalein Atoll. I was very lucky in that I was raised and educated on both Ebeye in the RMI and Ohio in the United States, so I can understand both sides of an issue and work to nd a solution amenable to everyone,Â” Lojkar said. Â“It is a great honor to serve the people of the RMI as their representative to USAKA. I hope to continue the good work of my predecessor, Hiram Malolo, and continue to promote a healthy relationship with USAKA,Â” Lojkar said. For more information on this position, or to speak to Lojkar, call him at 52634. LojkarÂ’s of ce is on the second oor of Building 901.

Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 8 By Vanessa Richard Reagan Test Site Weather StationLast month residents of Kwajalein pulled out their sweatshirts and raingear as the sky opened up and attempted to set a new weather record for the rainiest and coolest day in November. No records were broken, but the weather summary for the day was quite atypical. Nov. 29 was the wettest November day Kwajalein experienced in 11 years, with an accumulated 24-hour precipitation total of 4.44 inches. In the weather records for Kwajalein Atoll, which date back to 1960, only four other November days were wetter, making this event signi cant. The record precipitation event occurred on Nov. 24, 1975, with a 24-hour rainfall of 7.24 inches, followed by 4.85 inches on the 11th in 1994 and 4.59 inches in 1983. The latter is the daily record for Nov. 29. Not only was it a soggy day on Kwaj, it was also a relatively cool one. The high and low temperatures for the day were 83 and 75, respectively. Normal maximum and minimum temperatures for this time of year are 86 and 78. Even though just 3 degrees doesnÂ’t seem like much, it is unusual for the tropics. In the spirit of the holidays, it was as much of a taste of autumn as Kwajalein could hope to get. The Â‘chillyÂ’ temperatures occurred because as the rain fell to the surface, it dragged cooler air from above along with it. Known as entrainment, this is the process by which many of KwajaleinÂ’s coolest temperatures have been achieved. The lowest recorded temperature in November is 70 degrees, which, not surprisingly, occurred on the 24th in 1975, the same day as the record precipitation event.Also unusual is the time of day these temperature extremes occurred. The temperature reached a high of 83 degrees in the early hours of the morning. This is abnormal, as high temperatures typically occur in the afternoon hours, when the atmosphere has absorbed the maximum amount of heat from the sun for the day. The lowest temperature usually occurs just before sunrise, when the earth has cooled off as much as it will before the sun starts warming it up again. However, as we witnessed on Nov. 29, as the heavy rains fell under overcast skies, temperatures continued to decrease after dawn, and reached the low of 75 around 9 a.m. Temperatures began to rise slightly after the rains died down, but not to exceed the earlier recorded temperature of 83 degrees. A few rumbles of thunder may have been heard just before lunchtime as well. It was the third thunderstorm to move over Kwajalein this November. This makes 12 thunderstorms for 2005, which is also the average number of thunderstorms on Kwajalein annually. Thunderstorms are a relatively rare occurrence in this part of the world because updrafts are rarely strong enough to create the conditions necessary for lightning. Even though thunderstorms came out about average last month, the infrequent event is always a noteworthy one.Now, as we enter the dry and windy season, feel free to put away those umbrellas for awhile, but you may want to hold onto your hats.

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 ElizabethÂ’s apartment, but he discovers that she hasnÂ’t quite vacated the building. ElizabethÂ’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 ElizabethÂ’s spirit out of the apartment, but she refuses to budge, certain that she canÂ’t be completely dead, despite all evidence to the contrary. As Elizabeth and David try to share the at, they discover that their differences arenÂ’t as great as they once imagined, and they become attracted to one another. The Dukes of Hazzard The General Lee is back and so are the Duke boys in this big-screen adaptation of the hit TV series, brought to you by Jay Chandrasekhar of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe.

Bing a salad or dessert to IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE RECLAIMED WATER SYSTEM AND DRINKING WATER SYSTEM (SOUTHWESTERN TIP, INDUSTRIAL END OF KWAJALEIN ISLAND) The Kwajalein Island reclaimed (non-potable) water system and drinking water (potable) recently exceeded a chlorine residual standard (chlorine residual below the compliance level) at one of the sampling points within both the potable and non-potable water distribution system(s). Although this situation does not require you to take any precautions, public noti cation is required under these circumstances. The United States Army Environmental Standards requires that water entering, and within the water distribution systems meet certain residual chlorine levels to reduce the potential for bacteriological growth. Recently, one of the sampling points at the southwestern portion of Kwajalein was changed to better re ect the extremities of the distribution systems. This new sampling point shows residual chlorine levels which are less than the minimum compliance standard. The low chlorine residual is associated with user locations north of Building 1500, Reutilization and Disposal, on the industrial end of the island. For reference, this includes Bulding 1517, Liquid Nitrogen Plant and Building 1499, Ground-Based Radar. It is important to note that the water entering the distribution systems is acceptable and all other sampling points meet compliance standards. What does this mean? As a precaution, samples will continue to be collected and analyzed for coliform bacteria to ensure the water is protective of human health. Samples taken thus far have been negative for the presence of bacteria. What is being done to correct the problem? In the future the distribution line will be modi ed at the southwestern end of Kwajalein to help increase the ow and decrease stagnation of the water. Currently no health-based restrictions on drinking water use or the normal use of reclaimed water (irrigation, vehicle washing, etc.) are necessary. Please contact the Utilities Department at 51847 or the Environmental Department at 51134, if you have any questions regarding this notice or the suitability of the water systems.
