Kemen2 COMMENTARIES Marshallese employees grateful for use of trailersSee FLAGS, Page 12 L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor I wonder why I wonder about what I wonder about Sometimes I wonder about things. Mostly, it’s like, you know, when my medication kicks in, but I really do wonder about certain things that I’ll bet nobody else even thinks about. It’s like, you know, when I’m watching the news on TV and there’s riots and protests going on someplace in the world. I’ve seen ‘Yankee Go Home’ riots/protests in South America and Cuba and occasionally in Europe, but of course lately it’s in the Middle East (the Death to America/ Israel/Britain riots). Of course, all riots everywhere have to include the obligatory stomping and burning of ags. Now, what I wonder as I watch this stuff (after my pharmaceuticals have started working) is — if the people who are doing the rioting are located in Karachi in Pakistan or Kabul in Afghanistan or Tehran in Iran or Damascus in Syria, or in a remote dusty village on the On behalf of all Kwajalein Police Department Marshallese employees who live on Ebeye, we would like to extend our warmest Komol Tata to Aluttiq/KPD for providing trailers for us to be able to wash our laundry. This has de nitely helped lift some of the burdens that we struggle with in our daily lives on Ebeye and the continued struggle with power and water outages. Komol Tata to Chief Joe Barnes for all your support and hard work in this and for helping us. No words in any language can show how much it means to us when someone lends their hands to help. We know the trailers may not be available for long-term use, but it is the gesture of friendship and human kindness that you and the company have bestowed us that gives us encouragement to go on with daily work and daily life, and we will never forget this. You have gained our respect as your employees, fellow co-workers and lifelong friends. Thank you, Sandy Herrington, for providing soap for the trailers. Again, to Aluttiq and KPD, and all those who made this possible, it is the gesture of your concern and human kindness that touches our hearts and encourages us to have hope for our future in these trying times. We know we have co-workers and friends on Kwajalein who care, and this has really uplifted our spirit in these hard times we are faced with. — Pam DuffyChief in awe of police of cers' accomplishments Kwajalein Police Department is such a diverse, multi-functional department. Most days I am in awe of all the great work our of cers accomplish without recognition. I am, especially, reminded of all the ne of cers at the Airport Security Entry/Exit and the Dock Security Checkpoint. Every week these of cers process thousands of workers and visitors onto Kwajalein. Regardless of the circumstances or time of day, they don a hat of responsibility, providing for all of our security and well being. They are truly our rst line of deterrence and defense! Lt. Mike Bucher and Lt. Jeff Beringer head up these two sections and because of their discernment skills they provide a temperate, even-hand to running their sections. Leaders are often only as strong as those they surround themselves with, and I am blessed to have these two, See CHIEF, Page 12

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2006 3Unaccompanied patrons of CafŽ Paci c express frustrations with food Inconsistency, unhealthy choices, concerns for lack of special diet needsFood service concerns addressed at meetingBy J.J. KleinReporterUnaccompanied Caf Paci c meal card holders voiced their dining frustrations at an impromptu public meeting with Kwajalein Range Services food service managers on Saturday. Approximately 60 residential diners shared their dissatisfaction with unhealthy menu choices, sanitary conditions, inconsistencies in food preparation, lack of concern for dietary needs and inadequate food line supervision in a meeting organized by Steve Cummings, Dining Services manager, Caf Paci c Manager Dave Nobis and Sunrise Bakery Manager Jennifer Aakre, and attended by Steve Beuby, Community Services deputy program manager.The need for a public forum stemmed from an email requesting the availability of whole wheat bread on a regular basis but illuminated the bigger issues of quality of life and morale for unaccompanied status personnel. Meal card holders were adamant that their grievances were not a reaction to the Paci c Dining Room renovation but long-standing concerns. “As soon as I determined that there were issues two days ago we planned this meeting,” said Cummings. “And anytime there are issues, I plan to nd out from you all what you think. The civil but frustrated meal card holders were quick to vocalize their thoughts, as food services managers listed the diners’ grievances, requests, and suggestions on a ip-chart in an effort to identify and resolve concerns. “I really would like to get back together again and answer each and every one of these things,” said Cummings. “And I really would like to do some regular meetings so we can have free conversations back and forth. Our hope is that you see that we’re paying attention to your thoughts.” The assembled group of meal card holders agreed to hold a future meeting to give the dining staff time to institute changes and address the concerns aired. The next public forum with Caf Paci c dining managers is 6:30 p.m., Saturday 16, at the Caf Paci c dining room.

Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass celebration at Emon Beach Monday. (Photo by Sandy Miller) (Background photo by Andy Hogan)Kwajers celebrateLabor Day Monday4By J.J. KleinReporterOn Monday afternoon Bob Sholar loaded up his bike trailer with beach chairs, towels, snacks and everything else his family would need on Labor Day. Destination: Emon Beach. Labor Day means two things to most people, a day off from work and the unof cial end of summer. Many Kwajalein residents headed to the beach to mark the Labor Day weekend and enjoy the activities hosted by Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities. “It’s such a great social occasion,” said Sholar. “Most of the community is here, the old, the new; a lot of new this time of year.” Sholar’s 4-year old daughter, Julia, had her mind set on one thing. She came just for the

Well, crowded for Kwajalein. “This looks like a real beach,” commented Renee Hirniak. “Look at all the umbrellas lined up.” Angela Mitchell came down to the beach “because everyone is here and it’s fun, and because I’m going on vacation, so I want to soak it all up before we leave.” Stretched out in a beach chair encircled by friends munching on cheese nachos and children digging in the sand at his feet, Daniel Cooper looked out from under his baseball cap and said, “Labor is seriously overrated.” Sit back and enjoy the beautiful lagoon view Cooper, because it’s back to work on Wednesday.

Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2006 The Kwajalein HourglassWally Burbine, Antenna lead, 33-year resident. When I was working for the TPQ18 [Ground Transport Radar, Special Purpose], the rst shuttle that went up broke down. When it broke down we had six minutes to nd out what the problem was. So I told them, ‘Hey, standby. I’m going to take off and go up the antenna.’ So I went up and found the problem, a loose cable. I put the cable together and held it and told them, ‘Go for it.’ So we saved the mission. They didn’t know what to do, give me a medal or re me. Bob Sholar, Information Technology programmer/analyst, 27year resident. “My favorite good work memory [is] being given the chance to prove myself as a software programmer. [My] most notable other-than-good work memory [is] the 1987/88 Kwajalein contract transition. The contractor transition from Global Associates and Kentron to Pan Am World Services and DynCorp was traumatic for many of us. I had never been through a transition before. Kwajalein had not been through a major one in almost 25 years. I assumed there would be a carefully thought out plan for basic things like continuity of payroll and supply chain from outgoing to incoming companies. Turns out there was not — the ‘Emperor had no clothes.’ In the end, there was a huge scramble, and the pressure on us to keep essential business processes working was intense. I aged at an accelerated pace in 1987 and 1988. It also made me stronger and wiser.” Bonnie Oyamot, Kwajalein Jr. and Sr. High School Math instructor, 34-year resident. “The best part of my profession always happens when I receive personal letters or emails from former students telling me thanks for believing in them, for making math understandable for them, and for holding them to high standards of performance. I feel lucky to have touched the lives of so many people in positive ways. ‘The art of teaching consists in helping students feel that although you may stand in front of them, you’re really behind them.’” Gordon W. Oyamot, Electronic technician 2 with telemetry, 34year resident. When Oyamot rst arrived on Kwajalein he was impressed with the population of the island. “For such a tiny island, 6,500 bachelors and families were breathtaking to say the least. Second, came when I worked for Radio Communications of America up on Roi-Namur. Taking part on tracking the very rst missile experimental with ten warheads and spending over twenty hours with delays and protesters at California has to be memorable for me. Last, but not least, I would have to say my taking part on tracking the very rst interceptor launched from Meck island, and taking out an incoming RV launched from California.”6 To honor Labor Day, we present some Kwajers who have worked on island for more than 25 years The idea picked up support from other labor unions, and they selected the rst Monday in September to celebrate the day because it fell in between Independence Day and Thanksgiving. Twelve years after McGuire oated the idea, President Grover Cleveland designated it a federal holiday in 1894. The Hourglass pays tribute to Kwajalein’s working men and women, who have labored on island for 25plus years day after day in support of the mission. We asked them to share a memorable work experience. Gordon Oyamot Bonnie Oyamot Bob Sholar Wally Burbine By J.J. KleinReporterThe lazy days of summer usually culminate in a frenzied effort to squeeze in that last bit of summer fun before the weather turns cold, commonly known as the Labor Day weekend. Peter McGuire would probably be rolling over in his grave if he saw how Labor Day is celebrated today. Labor Day was the brainchild of Peter McGuire, the leader of the carpenters union, and originated as a day to acknowledge working men and women.

And if that’s not enough to wonder about, do you remember the riots over the cartoons of Mohammed printed in Danish newspapers? They were burning and stomping on Danish ags all over the Islamic world. Where the heck did those come from? Do people in Baghdad and Tehran and Jakarta happen to have spare Danish ags in their closets? You know, just in case Denmark ever made them mad? I mean, don’t you wonder about stuff like that? I do. Well . after I’ve had my prescription lled. But hey . .what was I talking about? Oh, yeah. I mean, like, you know, somebody is getting rich selling a lot of ags in those countries. There’s probably more American, Israeli and British ags in Tehran than there are in New York, Tel Aviv and London. Somewhere, there’s gotta be a business called Hassan’s ‘Riot Flags’ company. I can just see the ads they must run in the local newspapers — Come to Hassan’s for the best prices on in del and those in their sections, on my team. Our K9 section also deserves some recognition. Recently it provided an enjoyable K9 capabilities demonstration to the 4th grade class of Kwajalein Elementary School. Great job, KPD K9 section! I am excited to say that KPD hosted a quarterly Joint Area Law Enforcement Council meeting. Many positive things were discussed which will lead to a tremendous cooperative relationship between KPD, Kwajalein Atoll Local Government Police and the Republic of the Marshall Islands National Police agencies. Important points of our discussions dealt with the need to conduct additional water safety courses on ags — guaranteed ammable — soaked in gasoline for a nominal fee — our ags are suitable for ‘spontaneous’ riots, protests and/or storming of American and/or Israeli/British/Danish or whoever-has-made-us-mad today embassies — Hassan’s is not responsible if you’re too stupid to light ags without setting yourself on re — remember, Hassan’s makes the very best in del ‘riot’ ags in the Middle East — don’t get caught in our riots without one — come down to Hassan’s and get your ags to burn today —absolutely no refunds!Now, I don’t like to see American ags or the ags of our allies burned and disrespected, but you gotta admit, Hassan must be doing one heck of a business. If he’d go public and get on the New York Stock Exchange, no telling what the guy could rake in. As patriotic as some American companies are, he’d nd all kinds of partners, I’ll bet. Who am I kidding? If there really is a Hassan’s, it’s probably run by some guy named Lefty in Newark, New Jersey. Probably lives next door to Tony Soprano. Oh man, I gotta get my prescription re lled! I wonder what I’ll wonder about tonight.Ebeye for both the taxi boat service operators and those owning and operating private vessels. The course will emphasize the requirements for all boat operators who intend to use Kwajalein’s port, but will also focus on practicing safety tips regardless of where the operators are operating their vessels. KPD is in the process of having key portions of the boating safety regulation translated into Marshallese, so that all of the operators/ students can take a personal copy to refer to. Corporately, all of the law enforcement agencies represented are concerned about the safety and welfare of their citizens. I am excited at the prospect of our two communities’ law enforcement agencies coming together for the purpose of creating a joint police academy. KPD is looking forward to creating this school designed speci cally for the protection and service each department provides its community. Additionally, all area police departments will host a Town Hall meeting on Ebeye in the future to discuss community relations. This is a banner week for KPD, as we also welcome three new members entering our of cer orientation course. As a community, I hope you will help me welcome Bruce McKnight, Paul Evans and John Craddock. They are welcome additions to our great department, and I know they are anxious to be in your service. Until next time, be safe, be well and continue to look out for each other!
