Janice RiordanTaps is a thank youI chose to honor those who’ve died in uniform C o m m e n t a r y CommentaryEvery night at few seconds after 9 p.m. the second half of the late-evening bugle call begins. It is Taps. Because we are, for the most part in this community, Americans we have freedom of speech. We can choose to sing at the top of our lungs, laugh, joke, and curse or remain silent when these traditional bars come over the loud speaker. I chose, without fail, to remain silent. I also stand at attention and put my right hand over my heart. Even as if I were in a place of worship I would remain silent during a prayer, whether or not I was a member of that congregation. Taps is literally a bugle call saying goodnight to the community. Up until the Civil War, the infantry call for Extinguish Lights was the one set down in Silas Casey’s Tactics, which had been borrowed from the French. The music for Taps was adapted by Union General Daniel Butterfield for his brigade (Third Brigade, First Division, Fifth Army Corps, Army of the Potomac) in July, 1862. Over the years it has become a thank you to American men and women who have lost their lives while in service of our country. Taps is played at military ceremonies around the world as well as at funerals. Freedom of speech is guaranteed and remains in place primarily as a result of the courageous efforts of America’s military members. I recognize my way of thinking is not the same as others. Many believe there is no need for Taps at the end of day; it should be played only at funerals or memorial ceremonies. Many feel, as civilians they should not be forced to stand, be quiet or do anything else they don’t want to do. I agree. That’s what’s so cool about freedom. We can make a choice. We can choose to work on Kwajalein. We can choose to sit, or stand or lay down because it is a freedom of expression. I hope our choices are made as informed decisions. I hope that at least some of the people who are choosing to joke or talk loudly when Taps is sounding have made that decision without knowing what Taps means. It doesn’t mean the listener is agreeing with having music played over a loud-speaker system. It doesn’t really have anything to do with what is happening on Kwajalein in 2006. But it has quite a bit to do with what happened on Kwajalein during World War II. We play sports, walk and bicycle on ground that was fought and died for by Americans. Frankly, it bothers me when I hear young, American children ask their parents “why are the people standing there and not moving,” and the parent responds, “it doesn’t matter.” Of course this is just my opinion and I am exercising my freedom of speech, but to me it does matter. It is a tradition; it is a thank you and the evening sounding of Taps is a few seconds when


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 18, 2006 3 Three-country rescue effort unsuccessfulMarshallese sherman lost at sea By Nell M. Drumheller EditorAt 7:30 a.m. on March 11 the Republic of the Marshall Islands officially requested assistance from the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll in searching for a missing fisherman. Jack Jatois, 22, had been missing from Lib Island since 3 p.m. the day before. He’d been seen last fishing along the island’s south reef in a small, 14-foot white, traditional canoe with outrigger. Jatois, who is reported as being mentally disabled, had only a small paddle to propel the canoe and was wearing black shorts, but no shoes or shirt. The seas were 6-8-foot swells and extremely dangerous for a small craft. Following established procedures, USAKA notified the U.S. Coast Guard District 14 Joint Rescue Coordination Center in Honolulu and the U.S. Embassy in Majuro, according to Maj. Jeff Klein, USAKA Host Nations chief. “The U.S. Ambassador to the RMI, Greta Morris, officially requested U.S. Coast Guard assistance for this search and rescue operation shortly thereafter. Simultaneously, USAKA Commander COL Beverly Stipe ordered the launch of the USAKA search and rescue vessel, Kwajalein Police Department’s SAR 001 ,” Klein said. The search commenced within an hour of official notification and joined the RMI vessel RuKwajaleen, already on-station and searching in the vicinity of Lib Island. Coast Guard JRCC Director Commander Frank Genco requested USAKA assistance in conducting an aerial search of the area shortly after 11 a.m. USAKA aircraft began a search of the area at 1:30 p.m. following a pre-determined pattern provided to USAKA by the JRCC based on a computer-generated model produced using data provided by Kwajalein’s 3D Weather station. The USAKA aircraft, manned with volunteers from KRS/ Airscan, failed to discover the missing man and canoe after searching for almost 4 hours, according to Klein. Meanwhile, SAR-001 and the RuKwajaleen continued the search to no avail. “Both vessels returned to Kwajalein and Ebeye respectively after more than 10 hours of searching. The Coast Guard JRCC, in the interim, prepared to dispatch a Search and Rescue C-130 Aircraft out of Barber’s Point in Hawaii,” Klein added. The poor sea state and bad weather conditions prevented continuation of the search by boat the following day. The Coast Guard C-130 arrived at Kwajalein late Sunday evening and re-commenced the search the following day. At 6 p.m. on Monday the Coast Guard C-130, despite only a 6 percent chance of success based on computer modeling, found the empty canoe approximately 50 nautical miles southwest of Lib Island (80 nautical miles southwest of Kwajalein). The Coast Guard dropped homing beacons, flares and safety equipment in the vicinity of the canoe in the hope Jatois might be in the water in the vicinity of the canoe. The Coast Guard identified a Japanese fishing vessel working nearby and requested their assistance through the Japanese Coast Guard. The Japanese fishing boat found the canoe and searched the area but found no sign of the missing man. After discovery of the canoe, the Coast Guard requested the assistance of the U.S. Navy in the search. In response, the Navy dispatched a P3 aircraft out of Guam which continued the search through Tuesday morning. The Coast Guard C130 continued the search in the afternoon, but was unsuccessful in finding Jatois, returning to Kwajalein at dusk. At 6 a.m. on Wednesday the District 14 JRCC officially called off the search determining that the probability of finding Jatois alive, based on computer models associated with his age, presumed health, time without food or water and temperature of the ocean was almost negligible. Lt. j.g. Josh Fitzgerald and Lt. j.g. Mark Driver, the C-130 pilots, agreed Jatois might have been rescued had he stayed with his canoe; worn more clothing to protect him from the elements and made himself more visible in the water; had a minimal amount of safety equipment (i.e. secondary source of power, life preserver, safety line, etc.); and painted his vessel a more conspicuous color such as yellow, orange or red, which can be seen at great distances and contrasts nicely against any sea-state. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Jatois and his family,” Stipe said. “The United States government put forth a tremendous effort to try and rescue him over a four day period including aircraft and vessels from USAKA, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Navy and involved much interagency coordination through the U.S. Embassy, the Japanese Coast Guard and U.S. Coast Guard. We are deeply saddened that the outcome was not the one we all hoped,” she added.


Saturday, March 18, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 SpaceX Hourglass reportsSpaceX’s maiden ight for Falcon 1 is expected to be Tuesday on Omelek. “It has been great working with the folks at Kwaj. Launching a world-class rocket for the rst time requires hard work, perserverance and the ability to make smart, quick decisions. We’ve seen all of that in spades at Kwaj,” Elon Musk, CEO and founder of SpaceX, said. Below are launch updates posted by Musk on : Posted March 15 Falcon 1 has been removed from its hangar and erected on the launch pad. All systems are currently go for a static re on March 17 or 18, followed by a launch between March 20 and 25. Posted Feb. 24The tentative launch window for the maiden ight of Falcon 1 is March 20 through 25. The gating items are receiving a shipment of liquid oxygen from Hawaii and switching out the 2nd stage tank. Obviously, long term operations on Kwaj will require that we install a state-of-the-art, high reliability LOX plant on island. In the meantime, we will get through rst launch with LOX shipments from Hawaii and whatever output we can generate from the sad, old clunker of a LOX plant that we currently own. We are also replacing the 2nd stage tank, following discovery of a small leak. Fortunately, a Falcon 2nd stage tank just barely ts through the door of a standard cargo airplane, no C-17 required, so the ight is relatively inexpensive and readily available. Fixing the leak in the tank being shipped back is not a huge task, but also not something easily done far away from the factory. Countdown procedures have been modi ed to prevent such leaks from developing in the future. The static re performed during the last countdown attempt was really helpful as a pre ight systems checkout, so we will be doing one again three or four days before the next countdown, most likely March 17. In addition, we are doing another systems review with DARPA, AF and NASA in early March.Falcon I is scheduled to launch from Omelek on Tuesday. (Photo by Chris Thompson)


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 18, 2006 5 launch, all systems go Posted Feb. 10We were very happy to be able to execute a ight countdown all the way to lighting the engine. Although there wasn’t a launch this time, we made a lot of progress re ning the rocket and launch pad -all work that needed to be done anyway. Posted Feb. 9After analyzing data from the static fire countdown, we decided to postpone the launch. The vehicle is being lowered for further investigation.January updateThe new launch time is 4:30 p.m. California time Feb. 8 with Feb. 9 as a backup day. We will actually be ready to launch earlier, but are planning to spend extra time reviewing and double-checking all vehicle systems. Following the problem on Dec. 19, we ew a whole new rst stage to Hawaii via C-5 just in time to catch the barge from there to Kwaj a few days before New Year’s Eve. The new stage should arrive at Kwaj in about a week, whereupon we will switch it out with the damaged unit, which will be sent back to California for repair. The repair is not particularly dif cult or expensive, but can only be done properly in a factory setting. What was the problem? As previously reported, we traced the problem to the failure of an electronic component in one of the rst stage fuel tank pressurization valves. Although we have triple redundant pressure sensors and dual redundant pressurization valves, when this component shorted, it caused the valve controller board to reboot, effectively eliminating the redundancy. This is the rst time in 3.5 years of hard testing that we have ever seen this happen. Moreover, the component in question has a cycle life and power rating far in excess of the theoretical load that it should see. To address this speci c problem, we are replacing the component with one that has a quasi-in nite lifespan and taking a few other steps that will isolate any issue with this component if it goes wrong in the future. However, as I mentioned in an earlier update, we are not simply going to address this particular point problem and then merrily jump back into a countdown sequence. Throughout January, the SpaceX team will be doing another full review of vehicle systems, including propulsion, structures, avionics, software and ground support systems. We will be conducting additional engine tests, stage separation tests and avionics tests to once again attempt to ush out any issues. Even if we nd nothing, the exercise is worthwhile. Wind delays suck (literally) It is worth noting that we would have caught the problem without any damage to the vehicle if we had entered the nal countdown sequence as planned. The sucked in tank damage only occurred because we partly drained the fuel tank due to the hold for high winds. High winds are not a limitation of the rocket, which is designed to be essentially ‘all weather’ and handle ground winds in excess of 50 mph, watch out for ying coconuts! The ground winds limitation is actually due to the need to avoid a collision with the launch stand hold down arms, which grab the rocket at the base of the fuel tank, as the rocket lifts off. To alleviate this problem, we have redesigned the launch stand so that the hold down arms retract out of the way on liftoff, activated by a breakwire. This gives us something very close to 100 percent winds availability from Kwaj. The retraction force is low, so even if there were an early activation of the actuator, it would not damage the rocket. Another bothersome problem is the high rate of liquid oxygen boiloff. This is not surprising when LOX is at minus 300 F and there is a stiff wind impinging on the vehicle at 85 F. To minimize boiloff, we will wrap the LOX tank in low cost cryo insulation attached with velcro straps that tear away on liftoff. Lessons learned The challenges to date I think vindicate the strategy of building a small launch vehicle before a large one. If we had started out with an F9 class vehicle, the cost of every mistake would be multiplied by as much as an order of magnitude. As it is, we are able to overcome problems comparatively quickly and cheaply. With the bene t of lessons learned on F1, it is taking far less time, effort and money to create F9. Despite the distraction of the F1 launch countdowns, I still anticipate a ight F9 rst stage ring later this year and a maiden launch in late 2007. Great expectations Those familiar with the launch business will know that countdown scrubs are a way of life. It’s often said that the safest time to schedule your vacation is around launch day and that’s true more often than not. Even rockets that have launched hundreds of times from launch pads that are in heavy use have multiple scrubs. Not too long ago, there was a Titan launch that had 11 scrubs and a Delta launch that had six. Reasons range from hard to avoid technical glitches, like the shuttle fuel sensor malfunction on its last launch attempt, to silly false alarms. A Titan countdown was once aborted when someone spotted a ‘bag of suspicious liquid’ on the mobile service tower. It turned out the latrine had simply been a bridge too far for one of the technicians. Given that Falcon 1 is an all new rocket and is launching from an all new launch pad on a remote tropical island, countdown scrubs in the rst few attempts were very likely. As it is, we have had one abort due to a launch pad issue and one due to the rocket. If this next attempt succeeds in getting to t-zero, SpaceX will be reasonably fortunate in the scheme of things.


Saturday, March 18, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 By Vanessa Richard 3D Research / RTS Weather StationStarting today, Reagan Test Site Weather will present new tide predictions, courtesy of the Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services, a branch within the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The team of scientists at NOAA is devoted to making dependable tide predictions by continually improving their methods. In order to provide the best product possible, RTS Weather make the switch from commercial software predictions to NOAA tide predictions. The rst thing you may notice about the new tide predictions is the occurrence of negative tide heights. On Kwajalein, we have grown accustomed to seeing tide heights that remain positive. The difference is in the frame of reference used, and in making the switch to NOAA predictions, we will be using the same format which is standard in the United States. The following is an explanation of the new system and why negative tide heights can result. First, some background on tides. The tide is the regular rising and falling of the ocean surface caused by changes in gravitational forces exerted on the Earth by the moon, and to a lesser extent, the sun. As the moon rotates around the Earth, gravity causes a bulge in the ocean height, one facing the moon, and one on the opposite side of the Earth, facing away from the moon. The Earth rotates relative to the moon in one lunar day, which is 24 hours and 48 minutes on average. Therefore, for any given point on the surface of the Earth, two high tides will normally occur each day, about 12 hours and 24 minutes apart. The sun also exerts a continuous gravitational pull on the EarthÂ’s oceans. When the sun and moon are in line with the Earth they work together, creating a stronger pull that produces our highest tides called spring tides. When the sun and moon are not in line with the Earth they work in opposition and the pull is therefore less. The resulting tides are lower and known as neap tides. To make a tide prediction, there must be a reference level to indicate what the tidal height is relative to. The concept is similar to when you measure the height of a child; your reference level is the floor on which the child is standing. There are several accepted reference points or zero levels, known as elevation datum. The tide predictions RTS Weather has used in the past were in referenced to the station datum at Echo Pier, set at a level below which low tides rarely fall. Therefore tidesÂ’ heights are reported as being a positive value the majority of the time. Another accepted reference point, which is the most commonly accepted and utilized in the United States, is called Mean Lower Low Water. The MLLW is determined by averaging the lower of the two daily low tides over a 19-year period. At Echo Pier, the MLLW sits at a level that is 0.89 meters above the station datum. NOAA has been undergoing a transition to MLLW as a reference point for tide stations across the country, so in this way we will stay consistent with the United States. When making tide predictions relative to a mean or average value, there will inevitably be times when the tide falls below the average. Negative tide heights can result. Like weather predictions, tidal predictions are not an exact science. Factors such as local wind, current conditions and even El Nio play a role in actual water levels. It is not possible to factor in those effects when producing tide height predictions. Because of this, all tide predictions will contain a small amount of uncertainty. However, NOAA sets the standard for reliable oceanic and atmospheric predictions, making the tide heights now reported by RTS Weather the best available. For more information, contact the 3DRC/RTS Weather Station.New system used to predict tides High tide Low tide Water level is above MLLW, resulting in a positive tide heightEcho Pier MLLW Station Datum Water level is below MLLW, resulting in a negitive tide heightEcho Pier MLLW Station Datum


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, March 18, 2006 7 TAPS, from Page 2 By Elizabeth Davie ReporterMany people may wonder how and why we get the things we do in the retail stores on Kwaj and Roi-Namur. David Fearon, newly appointed Kwajalein Range Services retail merchandising manager, takes care of all that and more. Fearon, former Macy’s West manager, was promoted in February. He said his biggest challenge will be to try to keep everyone satisfied while dealing with limited space and budgets. “We all have different items we like, different hobbies etc.,” he said. Just like any where else, some customers have concerns. Fearon explained how these concerns should be handled, “First customers should always try taking their concerns directly to the manager of the store. Our store managers have a lot of experience and will be able to assist you most of the time with your concerns. The store managers are committed to providing great customer service as I am. If you have a concern that that needs my attention, call me, and I will be happy to discuss.” When asked how a customer can obtain an item that is not readily available, Fearon gave three ways for residents to request items. • E-mail Retail@kl He encouraged everyone to use this e-mail. “All retail store managers read this as well as myself, we value your comments and suggestions, I will always try to respond within 24 hours. Talking/e-mailing us is usually the first step. I will be basing buying decisions from what managers tell me what the community wants,” he said. • Customer comment cards that are available at each store for comments or suggestions. • Online survey available at http:// intranet/biz (click link on fair right side Community Survey) As far as special orders go, Fearon explained the process of those as well. “Stop by the Retail Office located on the 2nd floor of [Building] 602. Most common special orders are living room furniture, mattresses from Sealy, Sauder furniture, specialty bikes and parts, boating supplies from Port Supply, Hawaiian jewelry and occasionally we order rosewood furniture from Hong Kong. Some of these catalogs are also available at Macy’s or Macy’s West. If you’re interested in a food item, contact Ray Denham at Surfway for assistance. If the vendor is an approved KRS supplier and the order fits the minimum, we should be able to process your request after a 50 percent deposit has been paid.” Some islanders resort to the Internet to purchase items not available at retail stores, Fearon explained the benefits of purchasing on island, “We have the advantage of one-onone customer service that we can provide as well as convenience.” If that is not enough to urge consumers to use retail facilities, he added, “All profits, less operating cost, go to the Community Activities Recreation Fund. The RecFund pays for things such as new boats at the Small Boat Marina as well as helping to offset costs at the golf course, bowling center, etc.” Fearon explained his two main goals, “Continue to improve our customer service, selection and pricing that we provide to our community and ensure basic necessity items are always in stock.” New procedural and process changes that were recently implemented in ordering will reduce the occurrence popular items being out of stock, he said. “My job is to make sure we don’t order too much or too little.” Also new to the retail department are Susie Sudderth, manager of Macy’s West and Annemarie Jones, manager at Gimble’s.“I look forward to serving our Kwaj community; I grew up in a small town of less than 1,100 residents, like many small towns the residents know the store owners and the owners know most of the residents by name. In small town communities residents take pride and partial ownership of their business. Along these lines I encourage your comments, let us know how we are doing, what you don’t like and what you do like. The managers of the Kwajalein retail facilities are committed to serving our small town community and value your suggestions,” Fearon said. Fearon can be reached at 53307. New KRS retail merchandising manager committed to excellence each of us can face the water tower or the ag pole or wherever we want and silently thank those who have died for our freedoms. I will continue to express my freedoms in my way. Thankfully, you can, too. While there are no of cial words to Taps, the most recognized include in the second verse: Go to sleep, peaceful sleep, May the Soldier or sailor, God keep. On the land or the deep, Safe in sleep .More than 2,700,000 U.S. servicemembers have lost their lives in combat or due to combat-related injuries. When I stand quietly listening to Taps I thank the men and women who have been willing to go in harms way to ensure our freedoms.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Just Friends A hotshot thirtysomething record executive tries to win over the girl who once liked him only 'as a friend' in this slapstick comedy. In high school, Chris Brander (Ryan Reynolds) was an overweight, maladroit teen who spent every waking moment with his co-ed pal Jamie Palamino (Amy Smart). On the verge of graduation, Chris is humiliated when his yearbook confession to Jamie — that he wants to be more than 'just friends' — is read aloud. Jamie is attered, but rebuffs his advances, and Chris spends the next decade transforming himself into a buff, callous ladies’ man. Assigned by his boss to sign his pop star ex-girlfriend Samantha James (Anna Faris), Chris nds himself stranded in New Jersey for the holidays, where he promptly sets out to nd Jamie. But winning back the love of his life proves dif cult, as Chris not only has to get back in touch with the sensitive teen he once was, but also fend off competition from another former geek. A History of Violence David Cronenberg directed this screen adaptation of a graphic novel by John Wagner and Vince Locke which explores how an act of heroism unexpectedly changes a man’s life. Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) lives a quiet life in a small Indiana town, running the local diner with his wife, Edie (Maria Bello), and raising their two children. But the quiet is shattered one day when a pair of criminals on the run from the police walk into his diner just before closing time. After they attack one of the customers and seem ready to kill several of the people inside, Tom jumps to the fore, grabbing a gun from one of the criminals and killing the invaders. Tom is immediately hailed as a hero by his employees and the community at large, but Tom seems less than comfortable with his new notoriety.Movie ratings G = general audiences, all ages admitted PG = parental guidance suggested, some material may not be suitable for children.
