Send your letter to: The Hour glass, P.O. Box 23, Local; or Commander responds to letter about trailers Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to read and think through last week’s Hourglass article written by an anonymous resident of Kwajalein regarding rodents in a condemned trailer. The question they speci cally asked was who is responsible for removing these eyesores which house rodents? Let me inform the individual who wrote the article that this is an installation problem, and my staff and I are responsible for xing that problem. The writer discussed the issue of rodents in the trailers, but I have also been informed that we have a rodent problem in new housing as well; therefore, I think this issue is much larger than an infested trailer or two. I believe this is a serious problem that is far larger than placing a few rat traps in a building. I personally made a visit to the trailers in question and found they were totally in a poor state of repair. The numbers of the trailers I visited were 527 and 537. I realize that I cannot x this problem by myself; therefore, the involvement of the community is essential to exterminating all rodents on the installation. On August 30, I had an opportunity to discuss this issue with leaders from Department of Public Works and Kwajalein Range Services. Here are some of the actions we are going to implement immediately on the installation: • First, we need all members in the community who spot a rodent to report it immediately to the service order desk at 5-3550. This will allow Pest Control to keep records of each location and leaders to ensure that all work orders are being completed and handled in a timely manner. • Second, all members of the installation must start picking up all leftover food from their pets outside. The food residents leave outside attracts the rodents causing them to remain around the quarters. • KRS will immediately start searching all rodent traps installationwide seven days a week. • Our environmental staff is conducting research to see if we can use pesticides to exterminate all rodents. • We currently have plans to remove 30 trailers from the installation, and trailers 527 and 537 are now at the top of that list. They will be removed prior to September 23. • And nally, I have tasked KRS to write a follow-up article to address the status of all actions regarding rodents by September 21, to ensure the community is informed of all actions accomplished to resolve this issue. The individual requested if removing the trailers was on the Kwajalein Beauti cation Program. The easy answer is yes. I really want everyone to understand that this is not my installation, but our installation to enjoy and protect. Currently, the staff of DPW is working extremely hard to review the policies for the standards of the housing area, working with KRS to establish a clean-up plan for the island, and providing me with a cost estimate to sustain the program annually. This article is just the beginning as we build a framework for the Kwajalein’s Beauti cation Program. Adopt an area program, yard of the quarter and of the year, and fall and spring earth day are some of the initiatives we hope to implement in the very near future. In closing, I want each of you to know that I take this complaint seriously. I want to truly thank the anonymous resident for writing their story and getting the attention of my staff and I. In the future, please provide us with enough information so the staff and I can correct the problem at hand, making Kwajalein a safer and better place to live and work.

He said dealing with the militias is “fairly sophisticated and delicate, but both those tracks have to be pursued if we’re going to stand the militias down in an appropriate fashion.” The experience in Baghdad illustrates the way to take down the militias. “What we’re seeing in Baghdad, as these neighborhoods are cleared, is the Iraqi security forces that go in and hold the security in those neighborhoods,” he said. “I think when the people begin to feel more con dence in their security forces, they’ll feel less need to rely on the militias.” Militias are a problem, with some militias “no better than murdering, criminal gangs” that “ out the rule of law every day,” Casey said. “Those need to be dealt with rmly by the government, because no government can stand to have criminal groups By Jim GaramoneAmerican Forces Press ServiceThe primary threats to Iraq’s security are terrorists and death squads, the coalition commander in the country said today, and both must be addressed if Iraq is going to progress. Army Gen. George W. Casey Jr. said the Iraqi people “aren’t going to have the security that they want until the Iraqi security forces are the primary and dominant providers of security in the country. That won’t happen until all militias and insurgents are disbanded.” Casey spoke to reporters this morning in Baghdad. He said the Iraqi security forces are developing and continue to evolve and that soon they will turn into “security forces that the Iraqi people can be proud of.” The Iraqi forces are receiving the equipment they need to deal with the enemy they face, Casey said. But they will receive more armored vehicles, more aircraft and more logistical capabilities in the coming months. Casey said that while he does not know when Iraqi forces will be able to take over the security mission, they’ll be able to take on security missions with very little coalition support over the next year to 18 months. The coalition and Iraqi government have a three-step process to develop the security forces, he said. The rst step involved recruiting and training the army and police. This included giving the soldiers and police the weapons and equipment they need. “The second step was to put them into the lead, still with our support,” Casey said. “When they’re in the lead, they’re responsible for the area, and we still help them. That process is almost 75 percent complete.” The nal step will be to get the forces to the stage where they can provide security independently. “That step becomes primarily building institutional capacity, building ministerial capacity and building the key enabling systems logistics, intelligence, medical support, those terrorizing their population.” Casey said he has great hopes for the establishment of the Iraqi ground force headquarters and joint headquarters, both to begin operations in the next few days. This will give Iraqi security forces the oversight from their government that has been missing, he said. Casey praised the work of the soldiers of the 172nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team in Baghdad. He extended the brigade’s tour of duty in Iraq for four months to help combat sectarian violence in the capital. “It puts our most capable force at the decisive point in the campaign, and that’s what we needed,” he said. “They are magni cent young men and women, and their families are also magnificent for the support that they give these solders. I know it was difficult for the families. These soldiers are making a decisive difference here on the ground in Baghdad.” U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Mike B.

KleinReporterPart oneetÂ’s face it, no matter where you live parenting can be mind-boggling, valuable and sometimes rewarding, but mind-boggling. Parenting on Kwajalein presents its own unique challenges. Living on a tiny island that is relatively crime free, where most people know each other by name and children are afforded a lot of freedom, is a seemingly ideal place to raise a family. But if you are not careful, there is the danger of succumbing to a false sense of security. The Hourglass interviewed families who have lived on Kwajalein for 10 or more years and have already raised a family or are in the throes of it all. The names of these families have been changed to protect their privacy. According to these parents, the challenges are age-speci c with some concerns falling in the elementary school and younger age group, and L L

With younger children there is the danger that they will lose whatever family bond they have with their aunts, uncles and cousins. It is the out-of-sight, out-of-mind factor. This was an issue for the Jones family, parents with college-age children. “It was dif cult to get them to talk to family members,” admitted Mrs. Jones. “They would say, ‘I don’t really know them.’ We would try to get to know them, only to leave and have to start all over again the following year during the next family visit.” “The bond with their cousins, it’s no longer the same, because to them this is home. The [Kwajalein] community ends up being their cousins and aunts and uncles,” lamented Mr. Jones. “So they have lost that family connection and that, to me, is one setback. That is a big part of their life, to get to know their family.” “That is dif cult in the sense that we do only get to go home once a year. When we do go home, we spend a great amount of time [with family],” said Mrs. White, a mother of two children under the age of six “We do that so that my children can visit with their grandparents and have that bond. I grew up right down the street from my grandparents…and that’s what I want for my kids, too; to be real close to their family.” Mrs. White has taken steps early to ensure her young children have a connection with their extended family. “We have pictures all throughout the house and I make little photo albums; I make the White family photo album and the Black family [her side of the family] photo album,” said Mrs. White. “And all the cousins, the grandparents, and everything are in those little photo albums.” She keeps these inexpensive, child-size photo albums in a low basket for her children to pull out and look at whenever and wherever they want. It is just for them and “they go to these albums all the time.” It is her way of keeping the memory of family and friends alive for her children. She suggested making an album of Kwajalein friends who have moved away. There is hope for the older child who feels disconnected from extended family, according to the Jones family. They remained vocal and vigilant with their children about the importance of maintaining familial ties. “As a result of that lack of bond, our son decided to go back to where we came from to go to college,” said Mrs. Jones. “He made that decision on his own. He wants to be close to his family to get to know them.” The size of the Kwajalein community is an advantage when it comes to small class population for a child, but the possibility of nding your niche is more remote out here because the social circle is so small. “There are only so many inner circles of friends, and when your whole class has 30 students those circles are really small and very few. So you’re either a part of it or you’re not,” said Mr. Smith, a father of two teenagers. “They have to learn to deal with problems with their friends, and with such closeness here that can be dif cult,” he continued. “If somebody has a ght with someone, they are going to see each other all the time. In one sense it’s a bene t, they have to learn to mediate themselves.” Amy Brouwer, Child and Youth Services Training and Curriculum specialist, has observed “if your child makes a poor choice, the whole community is quickly informed and your private family issues may be available for the community to know.” As Mr. Smith pointed out, “We’ve seen some families who come out here, they have some problems that they are trying to escape from and this place doesn’t do it. Instead it magni es everything.” Brouwer would advise parents to “seek assistance from the many professionals on island that are more than willing to help. Use and reap the bene ts of the partnerships that can be created here.” This shbowl lifestyle can seem weary and feel

KleinReporterIt’s back to the future for Cathy Wellmann Stores, the new physical therapist at Kwajalein Hospital, as she returns for her second tour on Kwajalein. This time around everything seems familiar, but new, too. Ten years ago Stores was single and living in the bachelor’s quarters; now she’s arrived with her husband, Abe, and two children, Makana, 3, and Kyle, 18 months. One thing that hasn’t changed is her enthusiasm for her job. “I really enjoy helping, assisting and coaching people to reach their highest potential without pain and physical restrictions,” said Stores. She became interested in physical therapy as a career in 10th grade when she accompanied a friend with an ankle injury to a PT session. She thought the “physical therapists were fun, upbeat, healthy and motivating.” Stores has all the qualities she admired in those physical therapists of her youth, especially motivation. Motivation is a key component of Stores’ approach to life, particularly when it comes to competitive running. “I dreamed of participating in the U.S. Olympic Trials with a sub 2:50:00 marathon time,” said Stores, “though I blew it in Tucson, Ariz. with a 2:56:00 personal record.” But her dreams didn’t end there. It is Stores’ goal to compete in one marathon in every state across the country. Since 1994, Stores had raced in 21 marathons in 13 states. Although she recently had knee surgery on her left knee, Stores said she dreams of breaking her own marathon personal record. Stores has already laced up her running shoes, joined in on the Kwajalein Running Club fun runs and hopes to participate in the Paupers Marathon held on Kwajalein annually. “I look forward to participating in our Kwajalein community through the schools, sports and providing educational in-services,” said Stores. She hopes to educate the community and departmental staffs with information about workplace ergonomics, safe lifting techniques for the spine and sports injury prevention. “Ten years ago I did a lifting in-service for the re department and Facilities Operations and Maintenance staff,” said Stores. On her down time she enjoys swimming, cycling, weightlifting and “playing like a kid with my two children.” That ts right in with her motto, ‘If it’s physical, it’s therapy!’Physical therapist Cathy Wellman Stores shows the area where shoulder injuries occur.

(Courtesy of RTS Weather)PARENTING, from Page 5 claustrophobic, but a struggling parent can turn to Mental Health Care Provider Marion Ruf ng for assistance. Ruf ng’s services are con dential and free to all island employees and their families; to make an appointment call 55362. “I don’t think it is too much different here than living in a small town back in the states, but we need to keep in mind this small town is our job site as well,” said Ruf ng. The Child Development Center is another resource for learning how to deal with parenting concerns. “I do quarterly parent workshops/ informational sessions that deal with parenting issues and ways to deal with the stress of parenting” said Brouwer. “We have a small resource library [books, videos, cassettes, etc.], and parents can check out items for their reference.” The staff at the CDC encourages parents to share their concerns with them so they can develop workshops, materials and programs, and continue to meet the needs of the Kwajalein community. Sooner or later a child will have to make the move off the island. The challenge comes in getting the child to understand that living on Kwajalein is a temporary situation, and the guidelines or rules parents impose are to help them function back in the states. “We think that one of the biggest challenges is keeping them up on what it takes to live in the states,” said Mrs. Smith. “That changes with the age of the kid, so at three that means not running out in traf c.” Mr. Smith agreed, “The challenge is to teach them when they don’t have the experience.” For a child growing up on this island, Kwajalein is the only point of reference that he has. Running out in traf c on an island that has 445 vehicles, with a top driving speed of 25 miles per hour, for a community of 2,000 people is quite a different experience when compared to the approximately 1,000 vehicles for the same size community in the states. Parents, such as Mrs. White and her husband, who have identi ed this challenge for themselves are mindful of helping their children develop the skills they need to transition back and forth between Kwajalein and the states. “I don’t want to relax my skills for when I am there [in the United States],” said Mrs. White. “When we go check the mail we have to stay together. I don’t let one child run this way and one run that way, because when we’re in the states they have to stay with me. Just to keep me on top of things, I try to keep them right there [with me].” Mrs. White seemed to voice the sentiments of the Kwajalein families interviewed when she said this is a great place to raise her children, but she is by no means lulled by the relaxed island lifestyle, “because I know that it’s not forever.” Compared to many cities stateside Kwajalein is idyllic, yes; problem free, no. (Editor’s note: This is part one in a two-part series.)Wake Island evacuated for Typhoon Ioke By J.J. KleinReporterU.S. military of cials at U.S. Army Paci c devised an emergency evacuation response for Kwajalein as they tracked the movements of Typhoon Ioke over Wake Island. The category 5 Super Typhoon Ioke is suspected to have caused signi cant damage on Wake Island as it passed 615 miles north of Kwajalein. The typhoon hit Wake Island with estimated winds of up to 115 mph and gusts of up to 155 mph said Tom Wright, chief meteorologist with 3D Research Corporation. Kwajalein remained under west wind warning on Thursday and early Friday morning until the warning was lifted. The impact of Typhoon Ioke on Kwajalein was minimal. “We had the southwest winds, but nothing else,” said Wright. “Heavy showers and thunderstorms in the outer bands got nearly to Roi, but that’s it. It was just too far away to have any direct impact.” Airmen from the 15th Airlift Wing at Hickam Air Force Base evacuated 188 Wake Island residents and personnel on Monday. The evacuees were own to Honolulu aboard two C-17 planes and are being housed at Hickam and various Honolulu hotels until an assessment of the damage is completed said Lt. Col. Stanley Toy, USARPAC Operations and Aviation chief. The majority of the evacuees were Thai nationals employed by the Chugach Corporation according to Toy. “The Air Force estimates that they won’t be able to get in there to see what happened until Sept. 5, at the earliest,” said Wright. “The damage is likely tremendous, especially to the vegetation. I’m sure there are many trees See TYPHOON, Page 8

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. United 93 marks the ve-year anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States with this largely speculative meditation on the events that took place onboard the fourth hijacked plane, and the heroic actions of the passengers who gave their lives to ensure the safety of others. Told in real time and acted out by a cast of unknowns who were provided with detailed studies of their real-life counterparts, United 93 attempts to reconstruct the airborne tragedy from the view of the ground and ight controllers, the passengers, and their nervous families awaiting word on the fate of their loved ones. As the terri ed travelers and crew gradually become aware of the historical events taking place on the ground so far beneath them, the 90 minutes in which a random collection of strangers realized their fate and came together to confront an unthinkable threat are re-created. Just My Luck Two people discover just how true the old adage “lucky in life, unlucky in love” can be in this romantic comedy. Ashley (Lindsay Lohan) has always been the sort of girl fortune smiles upon — she’s pretty, she has a great job, she had good friends, guys fall over themselves to ask her out, and she never has trouble getting a cab. Jake (Chris Pine), on the other hand, is not nearly so lucky — he’s clumsy and accident prone, things never seem to go his way, and he’s just lost his job at a bowling alley. However, these two opposites meet one night at a ritzy masquerade ball, and Ashley and Jake exchange an impulsive kiss as two shooting stars cross in the sky. Suddenly, they both nd their luck taking a one hundred and eighty degree turn. Poseidon Set adrift in the vast waters of the North Atlantic for a luxury New Year’s Eve party staged in the ship’s magni cent ballroom, the massive ocean-liner Poseidon receives an unexpected jolt when a rogue, 100-foot wave rolls it completely upside down, forcing the surviving passengers to ght their way to safety. Trapped beneath the waterline and implored by the captain to remain in place until a rescue team arrives, the panicked survivors struggle to keep their cool as the water begins to rush in, infernos blaze all around, and a loss of electricity plunges the doomed vessel into total darkness.

Shafter. “JTF-HD did participate and provide coordination support as needed to facilitate the expeditious evacuation effort,” said Toy. “JTF-HD did consider the possibility that this could have occurred in Kwajalein.” The JTF-HD Operational Planning team formulated a preliminary evacuation plan for Kwajalein, in the event of a possible future typhoon, analyzing the response actions and procedures needed to provide immediate assistance. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll was given a copy of the plan and will meet with the team to hammer out a detailed evacuation response. Follow-up “round table sessions are needed to solidify the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders to ensure proper synchronization of response efforts,” said Toy. “Keep in mind, the logistical effort to evacuate Kwaj and the workforce would be a monumental undertaking that would require many airlift support capabilities.” Super Typhoon Ioke is expected to lose strength as it heads in a west-northwest direction toward Japan.TYPHOON, from Page 7 The following 17 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism Sgt.
