Kemen COMMENTARY L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor See LETTER, Page 16 See RELIEF, Page 16 The Cub Scouts almost died on Kwajalein. It would have been the rst time in over 40 years such a lapse would have occurred. More and more families are leaving as insane insurance rates, a double-digit rise in the cost of participating in activities and a skyrocketing cost of living on Kwajalein make it harder to justify staying. Our host nation friends should also pay close attention to this trend as the effects will most certainly be felt in many areas that are positively in uenced by our presence. Activities such as the Micronesian Shop; Bargain Bazaar; Carlos, Ennibur, Ebadon and Majetto gift drops; the Parent/Teacher Organization for Ebeye students; Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club and numerous other areas where volunteerism bene ts so many would be adversely impacted. I don’t know if I subscribe to the rumor that this is part of a planned process designed to reduce our ‘footprint’ on Kwajalein, so that only people who are willing to accept whatever conditions they are subjected to, will remain. But I do know that whatever the reasons may be, our homes, workplaces and community are literally crumbling around us. At least, we are getting a new U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll headquarters. At a time when overreaction, punishment, or at best, tolerance, seem to be the most common acknowledgements of worker’s efforts, I would like to recognize and applaud some people for their sel ess contributions to our community: Father John Sheehan, Roman Catholic priest, who took over our chartered organization when Kwajalein Range Services would not support us; Mike Lundberg, committee chair; Miguel Busquets, cub master; Wendi Gray, treasurer; Sue Thomas, secretary; Mary Kulig, events chair, Jane Sholar, awards and Dayna Wiley, Jay McMaster and Joel Madore, den leaders. How my big worry turned into big reliefI usually work on Sundays and this was another Sunday that I was off to work, but I wasn’t going to church, I was going to school; not my school, Katie’s school. I was dreading this day, but not for the reasons you might suspect. Sunday, Aug. 13, was the day my youngest moved into her dorm room. Now you could guess that her dad would be a bit emotional over this momentous occasion. I can tell you I was a bit touched that she played a song on the piano that morning that she and her sister have put together over the years. It’s a song I won’t hear until one of them comes home again and is inclined to play a familiar family tune. I was not so anxious about parting with Katie, but I was a bit concerned about parting with Katie’s stuff. Let me explain. In the week leading up to that day in August, our family jostled with similar parents in every Wal-Mart, Target, Bed, Bath and Beyond, and several other stores on the Space Coast of Florida. It was fascinating how often we would see the same people in the same aisles in different stores. Over those brief days we bought more supplies than Kathy Ann and I bought when we moved into our rst apartment. These stores were good. At the entrance everyone had a list of the essential items every college freshman needed to possess. We blew past essential and went deep into Volunteerism keeping island activities alive as more families decide to leave Kwajalein

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 16, 2006 3 Small Boat Marina personnel perform a BBoat checkout run in SAR pass. (Photo by J J Klein) Lurking danger SAR pass conditions can lead to serious accidentsBy J.J. KleinReporterDangerous swells make navigating the Search and Rescue pass dif cult, highlighting the need for boat operators to be aware of conditions when transiting the SAR pass. Complications in traversing the man-made SAR pass have resulted in three boating accidents, causing serious damage to two of the boats and necessitating a rescue in one incident.The extremely narrow and shallow SAR pass was created by blasting through the reef to create a short passageway from Kwajalein to the ocean. Boat operators should be alert to the moment-by-moment uctuating sea conditions in this area. Waves seemingly appear from nowhere, and the current in the pass is exceptionally strong.“During the summer months, when we get south swells, waves can break in the pass,” said Paul McGrew, Small Boat Marina supervisor. “During the windy season, the pass can have confused water making it very bumpy and uncomfortable to navigate through.” Confused water result from the collision of currents from different directions creating very steep, choppy waves and hazardous conditions.Swells in the pass are capable of stalling and killing engines, “leading to a total loss of power, leaving the boat at the mercy of the water,” according to McGrew, or worse, completely overturning a boat and tossing the crew into the water.In the most recent accident, “the boat was ‘pooped’, a sailor’s term for a wave coming over the stern of the boat and ooded within seconds,” said McGrew. The smallest misjudgment when transiting can lead to a serious accident. The Small Boat Marina staff cautions boat operators to time their SAR pass entry/exit with the conditions of the waves. They insist boat captains keep to the center of the lane by maintaining an observant eye on the buoys lining the pass. “If it is too rough, they need to be able to make the captain’s call and state that it is too dangerous,” said McGrew, “and go through South Pass as another option.” “Operators need to know when to accelerate and to slow down to avoid the waves crashing onto the boat. It is not a place to be speeding through just to get through, and is not a place to be going at a snail’s pace,” said McGrew. “Boat operators need to be vigilant of the dangerous conditions that can suddenly change while boating through the pass.”

T 4 T h e t e e n The teen y e a r s years Students at Kwajalein Junior/ Senior High School change classrooms at the bell. (Photos by J.J. Klein) By J.J. KleinReporterPart twoBy the time children reach their teenage years, you know without a doubt the parenting manual you never received in the hospital delivery ward would have been completely useless anyway. Parenting a teenager is often bewildering and frustrating. There is no roadmap for parenting a teen. The Hourglass interviewed families who live on Kwajalein and have already raised a family or are trying to sort through that process. The names of these families have been changed to protect their privacy. Three factors, existing simultaneously, contribute to the uniqueness of raising a teen on Kwajalein. Start with a three-mile island and a population under 2,000. A teen literally runs out of room to roam. Add to this the freedom most children are granted K w a j Kwaj p p p p p p a p p p a p p p p p a p p p a p a p p p p p r r r r r r r r e e r r e r r e e r r r r r r r r r r r e r r r e e e r r e r r a a e e e e e e e e n n n e e e e e n n e e e e e n e e e n n n e e e e e e n n e e e e e n n e e e e e n n e e e n n n t t n n t n n n n n t t n n n t t n n n n n n t t t t t i t t t t i t t t i t t i t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t i t t i t t t t t t i t t t t i t t t i t t i i t t t t t t t t t t i i i i n i n i i n i n i i i i i i i i i n i i i i i i i n n n n n n g g n n n n n n n g n n g g n n n n n n g g n n n n g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g g K w a j a l e i n Â’ s t e e n a g e r s KwajaleinÂ’s teenagers f e e l p r e s s u r e s o f l i v i n g feel pressures of living i n a s h b o w l e x i s t e n c e in a shbowl existence

These are just some of the past incidents that have landed juveniles in hot water,” said U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Provost Marshall, Maj. Johnny Davis. One thing is for sure, the consequences of getting into trouble have a serious ripple effect. “Consequences to a family for a teen who gets into serious trouble can range from no action to the family and the child is placed on suspension, probation or barred from island, or where the sponsor and dependents will be asked to depart USAKA in the best interest of the community,” said Davis. “The nal decision will rest with the Commander or the Deputy Commander along with the recommendation from the Juvenile Review Board.”“I saw it happen, and it was very dif cult on the parents. I knew the parents and I knew that they were decent people. But after multiple warnings, the range has no other recourse but to basically take drastic measures,” said Mr. Brown. “And it affects the job; it affects your daily living. Sometimes one parent has to go and stay with the kid off island while the other one has to stay back and work. It really breaks up the at a very ear l y age an d t h e entit l ement t h ey expect as t he y g row older. Throw in the fact that where y ou live i s a l so w h ere y ou wor k an d t h e consequences o f b a d ch oices can a ff ect b ot h environments, an d y ou h ave t h e dif culties of parenting on Kwajalein. “ Teens are trying to d iscover w h o t h ey are, ” sai d Car d a l e Ta d em y Teen Center d irector “ an d to put the m in a bo x an d ma ke the m co n fo rm…I th in k k i ds run f rom t h at. T h ey want to b e a bl e to experience t h ei r own world. “The y know that space is limited and the y know that ever yb o dy sees an d k nows w h at g oes on h ere, ” contin ued Tademy. “ I t h in k it wou ld b e roug h to b e a teen on Kwa j Sure, i t ’ s great to not h ave your parents d rive you everyw h ere, b ut b ecause t h e is l an d is so tin y ever yb o dy k nows w h o you are,” said Mrs. Green. “You can’t make a mistake without the whole island nding out. What does that say? ‘Be perfect, or else.’ I couldn’t live up to that.” Although it would seem that there is quite a lot to do on Kwajalein, that doesn’t crossover into the teenage world. On a small island things get old very quickly and eventually boredom sets in. “I’ve always thought that the younger kids have it pretty much made. They pretty much have died and gone to heaven out here, they’ve got so many different things offered to them,” said Mr. Smith. “After a while the kids have played all the sports, done the different things, they get bored. That’s the challenge, how do you keep them preoccupied or challenged without getting bored?” “These are kids with stuff going off inside of them and they are on a three-mile long island, and a half mile wide, they’ve exhausted this whole island in a very short time,” said Tademy, “and I think as a responsible community, we’re fooling ourselves to think that teenagers are not going to do stupid stuff. They are going to.” Rumor and general consensus is that teenagers on Kwajalein get into trouble, big trouble. The parents and community leaders interviewed point to underage alcohol drinking and theft. Without statistics it is dif cult to High school juniors Wardell Harless, left, and John Landgraff tally a survey for the school yearbook.“I think it would be rough to be a teen on Kwaj because the island is so tiny everybody knows who you are. You can’t make a mistake without the whole island nding out. What does that say? ‘Be perfect, or else.’ I couldn’t live up to that.”

Parents bene t, too, by knowing in advance what is going on before it blows up into a serious issue and by being available.“You have to set the ground rules up front, knowing full well that the kids have easy access to your house because you have an open-door policy. You know the kids and you know the parents, so it’s easy to grant them access to the house,” advised Mr. Brown. “And by giving them access, one thing that also works in your favor is the fact that you can observe them from a distance.”“Keep it real with your kids; stay involved with them,” agreed Tademy. “Listen to what they are saying; listen to how they are talking to the friends they are hanging out with. Watch what they are doing as far as what time are they coming home.” “O n e a d vi ce th a t I w ould l i ke to gi ve a new paren t wit h a teena g e r o n th i s i sl an d i s get invo l ve d wit h t he school s y s te m a s m uch a s y ou can, ” a dd e d M rs.

And at this level, that’s when communication should be strong; involvement should be strong,” said Tademy. “That’s not the time to say, ‘Let them do their thing.’” Parent availability and parent involvement appear to be key to nding a way through these perplexing Simone Smead and daughter, Summer, admire the catch.teenage years regardless of where on the globe you call home. Both parent and child can bene t, said Kwajalein High School Principal Steve Howell, when parents “take an active part themselves in their kids’ lives, because it really will only last so long and be over before you know it.”

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 16, 2006 7 A waterspout was spotted under a dark, at-bottomed cloud oceanside of SAR pass Saturday afternoon. Waterspouts are not a common occurrence in Kwajalein Atoll. The last of cial sighting of a water spout in the area was almost exactly a year ago on Sept. 15, near Bigej. Waterspouts are formed when light winds at ground level meet up with stronger winds above and create a wind shear. The updraft from a rain shower or a thunderstorm helps to tilt the shear vertically, creating a funnel similar in appearance to a tornado. “Although the waterspouts we get around here are pretty cool and innocent looking, they are still dangerous and should be avoided,” said Tom Wright, Chief Meteorologist for 3D Research Corporation. “Winds can exceed 100 mph inside the funnel and waterspouts have been known to overturn boats and cause injuries or even fatalities.” (Photo by Chuck Kuzy)Blowin’ in the wind News release from the United States Department of DefenseThe Department of Defense POW/ Missing Personnel Of ce (DPMO) announced today that the remains of a U.S. serviceman, missing in action from the Vietnam War, have been identi ed and returned to his family for burial with full military honors. Maj. Burke H. Morgan, U.S. Air Force, of Manitou Springs, Colo., was buried Sept. 7 beside his wife, Mary, at the U.S. Air Force Academy. The service coincided with his U.S. Air Force Academy graduating class’ 45th reunion. On Aug. 22, 1967, Morgan and a fellow of cer took off from Nakhon Phanom air base, Thailand, in their A-26A Invader on an armed reconnaissance mission over Laos. The crew had radio contact on their mission shortly after midnight, but were neither seen nor heard from again. Electronic and visual searches of their last-reported location in Xiangkhoang Province, as well as over the planned ight path, did not locate the missing aircraft. A joint U.S.-Lao People’s Democratic Republic team traveled to the province in 1993 to interview three informants about various crash sites. The men recalled the 1967 crash, as well as the burial of the crew members. They also stated that one of the bodies was disinterred by unknown persons in 1986. Four years later, another joint U.S.-Lao team resurveyed the original crash site and requested that the Lao government conduct a unilateral investigation. The Lao government was able to con rm that some remains were exhumed in the mid1980s, and promised to continue its investigation. Then in 2002, Lao government of cials reported that the remains had been turned over to a Lao of cial in 1987 or 1988, but that the of cial had since died. His driver, however, had possession of those remains and had been holding them in safekeeping awaiting directions from authorities. Scientists of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command were able to identify those remains using a variety of forensic methods, including analysis of skeletal and dental remains.Welcome home Missing pilot’s remains are identified For additional information on the Defense Department’s mission to account for missing Americans, visit the DPMO Web site at http:// www.dtic.mil/dpmo

Haley Graham (Missy Peregrym) is a gifted 17-year-old gymnast with a strong rebellious streak — strong enough that she walked away from her teammates on the eve of a major international tournament because she’d had enough of the rigid regimentation of Team U.S.A. After experiencing a scrape with the law with her extreme-cycling friends, Haley is given an unusual sentence — attending the Vickerman Gymnastics Academy, a worldclass training facility run by Burt Vickerman (Jeff Bridges), who has led some of the world’s greatest gymnasts to championship status. Haley makes no secret of her dislike of life at Vickerman’s, and her fellow athletes aren’t about to forgive her just yet for letting down her teammates. But while Vickerman makes clear things are to be done his way, he respects Haley’s talent, and together she shows him and her new teammates how to follow the rules while still expressing individuallity. X-Men: The Last Stand The explosive X-Men motion picture trilogy of cially draws to a close with this release that nds Rush Hour director Brett Ratner stepping in for Bryan Singer to tell the tale of a newly discovered mutant “cure,” and the polarizing effect it has on mutant/man relations. With the pressure on mutants to give up their powers and pledge alliance with the human race reaching a critical turning point, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) urges tolerance and understanding as his nemesis Magneto (Ian McKellen) gathers a powerful resistance in preparation for the ultimate war against humankind. 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.

Whether we have four or 400 scouts, a minimum number of parents must volunteer for scouts to run. Due to Kwaj’s high level of attrition and turnover, this number represents a 75 percent participation rate for our scout families. Their support is even more signi cant when you consider that many frivolous, but that’s just my opinion. Now here’s the part I dreaded. I knew that Katie’s room was on the second oor, and I had no idea how close we could get the car to the building. As it turned out, we had one carload and one small truckload. No kidding. So, I’m thinking, “How many trips will I need to take to get all this stuff into her room?” She even bought a really nice papa san chair which looked really comfy in the store, but the whole time I’m wondering, “How’s that going to make it to her room?” When we pulled into campus we were greeted by the Reserve Of cer Training Corps in uniform, a real military operation. I wasn’t sure if that was a comfort or a concern. After some in-processing we were directed to the dorms. I saw a long line of cars surrounded by students. My throat tightened, my legs worried, and my back wasn’t sure what abuse was about to begin. As we made our way to the head of the line, a Florida Institute of Technology fraternity brother looked at me and said, “What room?” I wasn’t sure what he meant. Did he already have designs on my daughter? Soon, the truck was swarmed with like-minded men. Finally, I blurted out, “Wood Hall, room 209 west.” I didn’t even have time to get out. I looked behind, and all of our hard fought purchases had vanished. Gone. The nice gentleman at the window said, “We’ll put everything in her room; you can park across the street.” I couldn’t believe it. My moment of panic was completely unwarranted. I parked the car and walked back to the dorm and said to myself, “I love this school!”It’s such a relief every now and then to be surprised by the good. I think we live a lot of our lives expecting the unexpectedly bad. That’s too bad. It sure would be fun to live expecting the unexpectedly good. I guess to make that a reality I need to be the next person to transform someone’s worry into relief that leads to joy. If we all get in on the act, someone might be heard to say, “I love this place.” Soccer schedule, standings For more information on sports schedules, call 53331Men’s A One Talk................................................................................................2 1 1 Fish........................................................................................................2 2 0 Spartans I.............................................................................................2 1 0 Locals....................................................................................................0 2 1 Men’s B Spartans II............................................................................................3 0 0 MI High School ....................................................................................1 2 0 Ebeye Public........................................................................................0 2 0 Women’s Strikers..................................................................................................3 0 0 Spartans I.............................................................................................2 0 1 Kick Back............................................................................................. 1 2 0 T’N’T Girls.............................................................................................0 1 1 Spartans II............................................................................................0 3 0Tuesday 6 p.m..............................................Women’s Spartans II vs. Kick Back 7:30 p.m.............................................Women’s -T’N’T Girls vs. StrikersWednesday 5:15 p.m.....................................Men’s B Ebeye Public vs. Spartans II 6:45 p.m...............................................Men’s A OneTalk vs. Spartans I 8 p.m................................................................Men’s A Locals vs. FishThursday 6 p.m.............................................Women’s T’N’T Girls vs. Spartans II 7:30 p.m............................................Women’s Strikers vs. Spartans IFriday 5:15 p.m..............................Men’s B MI High School vs. Ebeye Public 6:45 p.m.....................................................Men’s A OneTalk vs. Locals 8 p.m..........................................................Men’s A Spartans I vs. FishSaturday 5:15 p.m..........................Mixed Spartans II Girls vs. Spartans II Boysof these people also pull double duty in the PTO, athletic teams, church and other organizations listed above.
