Klein COMMENTARY L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor See PARENTS, Page 16Reader gives view on previous columns Parents are best teachers of characterSee READER, Page 16By Dave HamillKwajalein resident. This past weekend I was in the bakery and saw an act of good character shown to a member of our military by a father who lives on Kwaj. I know both the father and the son through my job as a teacher at the Child Development Center. In all of the Child and Youth Services programs on island, including the CDC, we teach children about having good character. We do this through the Character Counts! program, which includes six pillars of good character — trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. We start this program with the very youngest in our program, the 2 year olds, and continue Character Counts! based activities through the Youth Center, which reaches the older children. This past month the highlighted pillar was citizenship. The children had lessons, discussions and activities that were centered on being a good citizen. Character building can be taught by teachers and community members, but is best taught when shown by parents in everyday life. I witnessed one of these acts of good character at the bakery while getting a latte on Sunday morning. This past weekend we had many military personnel on island. A U.S. Marine Corps C-130 crew member came into the bakery to get a few things before they ew off to their next assignment. While standing in line next to him he asked me if they take debit cards at the bakery. I responded “no”; he proceeded to ask where a cash machine was located. It was Sunday morning so Ten-Ten was closed and by talking I was very impressed by three columns in recent Hourglass issues. One was by Dan Adler in the July 19 issue. I was very glad to see someone stand up for the nation of Israel. I fully support its efforts to defend itself. They have had a very dif cult time since founding their nation. There is a deep hatred from the Middle Eastern world that is rooted in antiquity. I think Israel would be very pleased to live in peace, but its neighbors refuse to let that happen. I hope Israel can continue to receive the help and support it needs from the United States in order to defend itself and provide itself with secure borders. The second one was by Dr. Bill Cantrell in the July 15 issue. I appreciated this article and wish everyone in America would and could read it. I am reminded of the saying attributed to Teddy Roosevelt, “Speak softly but carry a big stick.” Carrying one doesn’t mean you will use it. This idea is not popular with some, but many in this world operate at the level that the only thing that will stop them is the presence of the “big stick,” and not even that will stop all of them.War is ugly, wasteful, and there are no real “winners.” But the alternative is much worse as we can see from history and even from current day. Ask the survivors of 9/11, the families of those who died on that day or those who experienced the death camps in Germany or those who went through the ‘Hanoi Hilton’ and other such places. Only if all men learn to live in peace can we no longer prepare for war. That is a noble and wonderful dream and one we should all work for, but we cannot neglect our preparations until we see that all nations are doing the same. I fear we will not see that in our lifetimes.In the mean time, let us be prepared for those who would go outside of their borders and seek to destroy and pillage. Third column, same issue, was by Adler. I have never been a Soldier and I don’t understand why things are

Data was received for almost t w o m o n t h s b e f o r e t r a n s m i s s i o n s two months before transmissions s t o p p e d stopped. Transmitters on two released turtles have stopped sending data, many possible circumstances cited By Nell DrumhellerEditorCan you speak turtle? Just because humans and turtles don’t use the same communication methods doesn’t mean the turtles released by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and Kwajalein Range Services environmental personnel in April aren’t keeping in touch. The turtles were released near Nell and had transmitters attached to their backs. “The transmitters began to send data to the satellites immediately,” Cathy Madore, from the KRS Environmental, Safety and Health of ce said. USAKA’s Ken Sims explained why the turtles were released. “The purpose of the release was twofold: To reduce the number of turtles in the turtle pond and to gather movement data on sea turtles released back into the wild after being in captivity for a long time. We released four sea turtles, but we installed satellite tracking devices on two of the turtles.” Sims added, “We were able to track the turtles for 1 to 2 months before the satellite tracking devices stopped working. It is not uncommon for tracking devices to fall off, become damaged, or malfunction. We took every precaution; some things just happen.” There are several reasons that could explain why the data has stopped. Sims identi ed battery failure, antenna failure, a detached transmitter device, transmitter package damaged during normal activities by the turtle, predation of the turtle by sharks, etc., and human predation as the primary factors. “It is not unusual in large studies for all of these to happen. Our sample size is very small with only two transmitters in play and when combined with normal probabilities, it improves the chances of equipment failure for both turtles. We knew this going in, but I still believe it was worth the risk and See COMMUNICATE, Page 7

4 (Photo by of J.J. Klein)By J.J. KleinReporterA few months into Marcy Peterson’s freshman year, the balmy Georgia weather turned nippy. Peterson realized the two long-sleeved shirts and ip ops she brought with her from Kwajalein were not going to cut it around campus anymore. It was then that Kwajalein seemed a million miles away. Every year a handful of Kwajalein high school students, having grown up on this tiny, three-mile island, graduate and leave for new and unique experiences in the United States. Right from the get-go there are encounters that make these young adults realize that their stateside peers cannot relate to life on Kwajalein. At some point in a conversation they end up elding dumb questions such as “are there koalas where you live?”, “do you live in banana leaf huts?” or “do you wear grass skirts?” Answering the trite question, “So, where are you from?” is always tricky for these young people. Give an honest answer and these teens are greeted with the quizzical head tilt followed by a lengthy conversation and a geography lesson. “When explaining where I was from, people seemed Cold weather, driving, communications are tough adjustments for Kwaj Kids “I like traveling and living in different places, but of all the places I’ve been this is the one I’m proud to call home. This is where my heart is!” — Lindsay Davis

Only once did Peterson try a conversation-ending answer when asked the dreaded question, “I said that I was from Hawaii, and that person was from Hawaii. That didn’t work out very well!” The change in weather is the most noticeable difference these teens rst experience. “My rst winter back [in college] was horrible, but the worst part about it was the lack of sunlight. Living here my whole life, I was so used to being able to go outside whenever I wanted to and having mostly beautiful, sunny weather. It was tough to be con ned inside all the time because it was just too cold to go outside,” said Pierre-Mike. For Peterson, the change in Georgia weather signaled the needed to buy a winter coat, something she never thought about as a teenager living on Kwajalein. Essential to living in the United States is the ability to drive. Most Kwajalein teens do not hold a U.S. driver’s license. If they do drive it is at the top speed of 25 miles per hour, and most have never even pumped gas. That was Sara Alves’ experience when her boyfriend rst asked her to pump gas. She fumbled with the gas tank cap until her boyfriend opened it for her and then stuck the nozzle in the tank bewildered when the gas would not come out. “‘What am I supposed to do?’ and he said you have to lift up the thing on the gas pump itself,” she laughed. “I didn’t know Sarah Alves “It was hard to feel like an independent young adult in college who couldn’t get around on her own; it was especially hard after being able to do so on a bike for the previous five years.” — Sarah Alves “When explaining where I was from, people seemed shocked to know that this part of the world even existed.” — Anja Pierre-Mike Marcy Peterson “ I s a i d t h a t I w a s f r o m H a w a i i a n d t h a t p e r s o n w a s f r o m “I said that I was from Hawaii, and that person was from H a w a i i T h a t d i d n ’ t w o r k o u t v e r y w e l l ” — Hawaii.

Since I do not have a driver’s license, I always had to ask friends for rides to the mall, WalMart… after a year of favors, I felt bad asking for another one,” said Peterson. “It was hard to feel like an independent young adult in college who couldn’t get around on her own; it was especially hard after being able to do so on a bike for the previous ve years.” Sports participation is another arena where the difference between Kwajalein and the states really stands out. “Out here you can play any sport you want; in the states you have to be really good,” said William Peters. “You have to focus on one sport; you can’t really branch out, and the level of competition is very different.” “The kids out here who are good at sports wouldn’t cut it, most of the time, in a varsity sport,” he continued. “Out here everyone comes out to have fun, everyone plays, it doesn’t matter how good you play.” These young people did not grow up with a cell phone permanently implanted to the ear, but all have come to realize that a cell phone is a way of life in the states and each now owns one. Although they would concur not living with cell phones contributes to the laid back attitude of Kwajalein. “I wasn’t looking forward to having to join that trend,” Peterson con ded. “You can walk around here all day long and not have to have your purse ringing, if you even carry a purse.” For most of the girls, the experience of having to carry around a purse chock-full of money, credit cards, keys and a cell phone is brand new. As Peterson pointed out, life on Kwajalein is simple; all you need is $10, your ID card and “you can last for a week!” Hands down these young people agree that the connections they have with people in Kwajalein in comparison to the way people are connected in the states is the most signi cant difference and one that af icts them with a touch of homesickness. “The biggest difference to me is that this place functions like one big family; it’s hard sometimes and there are things that we don’t like…but they’re always here for you — never far away,” said Lindsay Davis “I was so used to the friendliness of people here that it was hard to adjust to living in a place where generally people aren’t as warm as they are here” admitted Pierre-Mike. “Out here I spend every waking minute with my friends,” said Alves. “I found this doesn’t happen in the states, there has to be some major event to bring everyone together…and you don’t get to really know one another as well as you do out here.” Many of these young people did not head over to the states clueless. They left armed to the teeth with advice from family, teachers, friends who have been there and done that. But as Davis pointed out, they have to walk through these experiences for themselves. She said, “The best advice was something my brother said to me. He said, ‘Call me.’” Pierre-Mike “felt like the advice was very helpful. Living here my whole life, I really had no idea what to expect about living in the states, so it was very helpful to talk to other people.” There is no doubt these young people always win the who-came-thelongest-distance-to-be-here contest. Behind that winning-raised hand there is a smile because they really loved growing up on Kwajalein. “I like traveling and living in different places, but of all the places I’ve been, this is the one I’m proud to call home,” said Davis, summing up the sentiments of these young people. “This is where my heart is!” KWAJ KIDS, from Page 5 U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ReleaseThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the rm named below, announced an extension of a voluntary recall of the following product, initially commenced in June 2005, to include the additional date codes speci ed below.

Sims concurred with Madore, “We were hoping to show the movements of formerly captive sea turtles in the Kwajalein Atoll RMI area. No released sea turtles in the RMI or this part of the Paci c Ocean have ever been tracked.” Data received from the transmitters indicated the turtles had not traveled outside the Kwajalein Atoll. “The female green turtle traveled from Nell to the shoreline off of the DCCB. The Hawksbill has not ventured out of his release area as far as we can tell,” Madore said. Green sea turtles and Hawksbill turtles are native to this area and actively nest in the Marshall Islands, Madore said. “Greens eat ‘green stuff’ like algae and sea grasses as well as jelly sh while Hawksbills eat sponges, squid, sh, etc. All of these food types are available here,” she added. The turtles’ data could show up again, “Satellite technology means that there is no true “range” for the transmitters. Wherever they are they send a signal to multiple satellites in space and those satellites send the information to a data gathering system called Argos. The same transmitter, if recovered, could be used on a different animal, thousands of miles away with no problems,” Madore said.One of the turtles at the Turtle Pond peers over the wall at the world surrounding the pond.Two of the turtles were released to the open ocean in April. effort,” Sims said. “We began receiving data from the turtles almost immediately, but data gaps could be caused by bad timing. The transmitter has to be at the surface of the water for a set period of time and transmitting at the same time one or more of the satellites are passing over. The satellite coverage over the equator is slim so that makes our data gathering efforts even more dif cult because our window of opportunity is smaller,” Madore added. Another explanation for lack of data transmission is that the transmitters could have been dislodged from the turtles’ shells. “While application procedures are available, and were followed in our case, there are other factors involved. If the turtle sheds the top layer of its shell the transmitter will be dislodged. If a turtle has a habit of running up under coral outcroppings or hiding in tight spaces, that can also dislodge the transmitter,” Madore said. “Fouling of the transmitter from algal growth is also a possibility. Our turtle release was a one-time event, and we consider ourselves lucky to have received the data that we have.” This type of turtle tracking is not new. Turtle tracking has been accomplished all over the world using this type of transmitter. “The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association releases turtles in Hawaii on a regular basis, and the data made available from these efforts is extremely valuable. We used resources from NOAA in deciding what type of transmitter to use, its application and the set up with Argos. They are very interested Turtles age back from the Triassic age, 200 million years ago. The green sea turtle can stay underwater for over ve hours without coming up for air. Hawksbill turtles feast off sea sponges which are highly poisonous to most sea animals, but not to this turtle. When in danger, the green turtle can swim almost 20 miles an hour to escape.Turtle tale

Note on Monday signed an Executive Order prohibiting “citizens, nationals, resident entities, nonresident and domestic quali ed entities” in the Marshall Islands “from owning, leasing, operating, or insuring any vessel agged” by North Korea. The Executive Order comes at the heels of the recent escalating tension in the Northeast Asia Region by North Korea. “The RMI does not endorse North Korea’s stance on its nuclear ambitions,” said the president after signing the order. “This prudent measure is without question to safeguard our people,” said the president. “As a responsible registry nation and one of the largest in the world, the Marshall Islands continues to hold safety and security issues as paramount.” With the recommendation from the RMI Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Cabinet passed Cabinet Minute 082(2006) approving the issuance of the Executive Order. The Marshall Islands is a member of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. to him I found out the cash machine at the Kwaj Lodge was not working either. After seeing and hearing this all take place, the father who was enjoying coffee while his young son was eating a cookie, called out from the table and said, “Sir, what do you need?” the Marine responded “Well I was just going to get a few waters.” The father pulled money out of his pocket and gave it to the Marine to buy the waters. The Marine was very humble and responded “Are you sure, sir?” The father said “Yes, get whatever else you need.” The Marine bought water and a soda. On the way out the door, the Marine returned the favor. He bent down, took his name tag off his uniform and handed it to the young boy. I would like to say thank you to Joey Holley for showing his young son, Jackson, what true character looks like rst hand. I have seen many similar acts take place on Kwajalein. We have a great community on Kwaj; let’s continue improving it by demonstrating good character in our daily life. Thanks for the great community. — Julia Sektnan always done they way they are. However, I have deep respect and appreciation for our Soldiers. Iraq has to be one of the toughest places U.S. Soldiers have had to serve since Vietnam. They deserve our respect, appreciation and unending gratitude. I guess if I was young, I could or would do it if called upon, but I am glad I never had to. Soldiers do not get rich ghting for us. They risk everything. Some give their lives; some give their bodies. By that I mean they return home crippled or maimed for life with small pensions and the loss of hopes and dreams that can never be achieved.Yes, some do go astray and some probably deserved to be punished. However, I think few of us civilians or noncombatants can understand the job they are called upon to do and the stress they are placed under while doing that job and the kinds of decisions they have to make under those conditions. I also suspect the number is far fewer than the press would have us believe. As for the media, they are in it for the pro t and the notoriety. Bad news sells; good news doesn’t. They are looking at the bottom line and their reporters are looking for what gets recognition and advancement. It is sad that they take the negative view; shame on them. How about the other side? From what I see, I think their atrocities far outweigh anything I have seen our Soldiers being accused of doing. Isn’t that newsworthy? Don’t we deserve to know about those? Oh, I forget, that is bad news, but not bad enough to sell and insure pro ts. How stupid of me.
