In the Sept. 13 issue, the names of several Ebeye government of cials were listed inaccurately. The correct names are: Capt. Raney Bolkeim, Prosecutor Davidson Jajo and City Administrator, Aeto Bantol. The Hourglass regrets the error.Water sports safety rules should be followed Back row, Sandy Herrington, Christine Gregoire and Suzan Scruton and in the front row, Pam Duffy and Karen Heath of the Kwajalein Police Department Administrative Staff comprise a tightly knit unit, which runs like a nely tuned machine. Unfortunately, most employees are unaware of what the administrative staff accomplishes for the department behind the scenes. However, their hard work on a daily basis plays a crucial role in achieving KPD mission success. (Not pictured, Debbie Kirby and Brandon Ridens.)I begin the ChiefÂ’s Corner this week by welcoming three new of cers to the Kwajalein Police Department family. Help me welcome Jacob Miller, Bryan Mesey and Elizabeth Wiggins, who is returning to Kwajalein. Many of you may remember her. Each of cer comes to the island with diverse backgrounds and experience. With their arrival, KPD continues to grow to better serve you, our island residents and neighbors. We at KPD have real care and concern for all of our residents and those who work here every day. As a former Soldier responsible for the Soldiers entrusted to me, I was continually providing safety brie ngs that I know my Soldiers rarely appreciated. Until they found themselves in a situation where the safety brie ng Â“rang trueÂ” in their ears and perhaps helped them avoid a dangerous situation. Many of us in our day-to-day duties accept a certain amount of risk which is the nature of the work we perform. It only stands to reason that everything should be done always to minimize that risk for the sake of ourselves and all those who work around us. To purposely add needless risk only invites disaster. What applies to work also applies to our play and recreation, speci cally in the various water sport activities that are offered on Kwajalein. Each water sport bears a measure of risk, which with precautions and operating inside the guidelines established in the USAKA regulations, can mean fun and excitement for all involved. There are a few, not many, who take the regulatory mandates to their extreme, perhaps even going over the edge of violating them. These types of violators add greater risk to an already risky activity. In all cases that I have seen, the additional risk was never worth the safety or life of someone. Regret becomes the most prevailing emotion when someone is harmed resulting from a violation of the regulations.Established rules and regulations have been imposed for a purpose. They are not just words of rule to prohibit anyone from enjoying their particular water sport. My experience shows that these regulations were established due to an event that did in fact result in serious injuries or worse. Experience also shows that when an accident happens due to fool hardy, over-the-top risk taking, it affects everyone. Usually, command decisions are made to prohibit that activity, and it is usually for a signi cant length of time. The unsafe, ignorant actions of a few affect the opportunity for the rest of us to enjoy the water sports we all love. My encouragement to all is to read or re-read the regulation that governs your favorite water sport. KPD cannot ignore violators or turn a blind eye to those who are in violation of the regulations we are chartered to enforce. Ignorance of the rules and regulations is often a defense, but it wonÂ’t be accepted as an excuse for anyone found to be in violation. As fellow residents, I ask you to report violations to KPD. Please do not allow those few who feel it necessary to operate outside of the rules to ruin an opportunity for you and the rest of the community to enjoy your favorite water sports. Until next time, be safe, be well and continue to look out for each other! Correction
The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2006 CafÂŽ Paci c patrons go through the serving line during lunch. 3Dining services responds to customer suggestions, complaintsCafÂŽ Paci c follow-up meeting held Saturday By J.J. KleinReporterDining services managers held a follow-up open forum for unaccompanied meal cardholders at the Caf Paci c on Saturday evening. The meeting, facilitated by Dining Services manager Steve Cummings and attended by Residential Dining Service manager, Dave Nobis and Retail Dining Services manager, Jennifer Aakre, detailed Kwajalein Range Service responses to customer suggestions and complaints. Â“We want to serve you the way you want to be served,Â” said Cummings. Â“What you want on the menu will be on the menu, and what you donÂ’t want on the menu wonÂ’t be on the menu. We really want to move in the direction you want to go.Â”Meal cardholders at this second meeting were given an after action report listing 37 customer comments of the initial meeting and the course of action implemented or addressed within the last two weeks.Working through the punch list of customer comments, Cummings traded quips with the approximately 50 people gathered who offered appreciation for many of the changes implemented and continued to add very speci c dining hall requests. Some requests by patrons called for more Sloppy Joe nights, and more romaine lettuce and less iceberg lettuce in the salad bar. Â“The last two weeks the word on the street has been very positive, and IÂ’ve got to say this series of comments and responses is most impressive,Â” said Father John Sheehan. Â“There are very few places that IÂ’ve been that thereÂ’s been this much immediate response and listening to people.Â” Following the initial meeting, Dining Services managers met daily to begin implementing new processes, improvements and changes. One change was the discontinuation of using butter and margarine in vegetable preparation, and making these condiments available for individual use. Meal cardholders should have noticed an immediate response to their requests, beginning the Sunday after the rst open forum. Diners should have noticed an increase in the availability of fresh fruit and wheat bread. The actions undertaken to reduce the price of take-out food from $2 to $1, effective Sunday, could not assuage the emotions surrounding this hot-button issue. Meal cardholders continued to have issues with not only the cost of takeout, but the time spent waiting to be served. Dining Services estimated two full-time staff members would be needed to monitor the takeout line and would consider heading in that direction in the future. The upcoming weeks will bring more changes to Caf Paci c, according to Cummings. While customers have complained of the lack of a supervisory presence on the food line, KRS maintains Â“a oor supervisor is on site at all times,Â” but will now be easily identi ed. All oor supervisors will be identi ed by the burgundy KRS baseball cap they will now wear.KRS is hiring a certi ed nutritionist to develop healthy menus and resolve the special dietary needs of diners with diabetes, weight control, heart problems and other issues.Â“We would welcome participation in the menu development process,Â” said Cummings, Â“and we look forward to the formation of a residential dining committee.Â”Meal cardholders left the forum prepared to organize into a representational committee, meeting with KRS Dining Services on a monthly basis to continue the response to dining facilities issues. Diners expressed satisfaction with the responses to date but still seeing room for improvement. As meal cardholder Ken Hulme commented, Â“Keep it up and kick it up a notch.Â” "The last two weeks the word on the street has been very positive, and I've got to say this series of comments and responses is most impressive. There are very few places that I've been that there's been this much immediate response and listening to people." Father John Sheehan
Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass Bill Maludrick sells fresh produce to Sandy Shimaoka, left and Mary Norris during the Marshallese Trade Fair on Monday. (Photos by J.J. Klein and Sandy Miller)4By Alan Taylor,RMI Relations Specialist Monday morning ushered in the third Marshallese Trade Fair, sponsored by the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and the Republic of the Marshall Islands Ministry of Resource and Development. With over 50 vendors and a wide variety of indigenously produced, caught and grown products, the fair had a little bit of something for everyone. The event commenced with remarks by the USAKA Commander Col. Stevenson L. Reed and the RMI Minister of Resource and Development, the Honorable John Silk, complementing the Marshallese vendors on their craftsmanship and urging island residents to enjoy the fruits of these labors. Col. Reed, in his remarks, highlighted the trade fairÂ’s importance as not only a chance to purchase local goods, but as an opportunity to bring together two communities. Â“This third annual event illustrates the commitment and teamwork of two great nations,Â” Reed said. Â“As you purchase these superb gifts, consider the hard work and skill crafted in the handiwork.Â” But the fair was not just handicrafts alone. Traditional weavers from Ebeye methodically fashioned baskets, hats and mobiles from fresh palm fronds for waiting Kwaj residents. Farmers from Majuro and Arno displayed their locally-grown produce, including a wide variety of bananas, squash, corn, eggplant, cucumbers and papayas. Vendors also sold a multitude of coconut oil products, dresses, and there was even the opportunity to buy Marshallese CDs produced by local musicians. The biggest and fastest seller though was fresh sh and lobster. Â“The demand for sh was amazing,Â” the Director of M a r s h a l l e s e T r a d e F a i r d e l i v e r s Marshallese Trade Fair delivers f r e s h f i s h v e g e t a b l e s h a n d i c r a f t s fresh fish, vegetables, handicraftsAnnual event demonstrates teamwork, brings our two communities together

Host Nation Activities Of ce Maj. Jeff Klein, said. Â“The lobster was gone in the rst ve minutes, and the rest of the sh sold out within the next half hour.Â” Due to the demand overseas, the trade fair was only able to get about 1,000 pounds of the requested 3,000 pounds of yellow n tuna. Â“Next year we will try to do something different to make sure everyone who wants sh gets sh,Â” stated Klein. Â“The biggest issue is we have to compete with COSTCO and the Japanese market for sh. That is problematic for us, but great for the Marshall Islands.Â” In the end, everyone seemed to walk away satis ed. Kwajalein residents were able to purchase very high quality products at a good price, and the Marshallese vendors sold most of their goods for a reasonable pro t. Â“This is the third year I have been involved with the Marshallese Trade Fair,Â” stated Minister Silk. Â“And each year, it gets better and better.Â” Bill Clancy shops for baskets, sold by Risen James, to send home to relatives. Fresh sh was the most popular item of the day and sold out quickly.

Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Students take part in coastal clean-up By J.J. KleinReporterThe next time Tyler DeCoster, 12, nds an empty soda can carelessly dumped on Emon Beach he knows exactly what he will do; he will pick it up and throw it in the trash can. DeCoster knows rsthand the consequences of letting a beach become a dump site. He spent two hours on Monday cleaning up a one-mile stretch of beach on Gugeegue. Students from Kwajalein Atoll High School on Gugeegue and the Kwajalein High School Marshall Islands Club partnered to participate in the International Coastal Cleanup event clearing debris from the coastlines of the Gugeegue lagoon and ocean. The 290 students were part of a global initiative to clear trash from coastlines, rivers and lakes worldwide held the third weekend each September and organized by the Ocean Conservancy. The Ocean Conservancy is a non-pro t ocean advocacy group dedicated to protecting diverse ocean ecosystems through education, inspiration, science and research. Thirty students from the MIC club met up with their Marshallese peers and were handed trash bags, gloves and data sheets. Two sweaty hours later they had collected 250 pounds of garbage, aluminum soda cans and plastic making up a signi cant portion of the 100 trash bags ready for the dump on Ebeye. A car dashboard won the prize for most unusual piece of debris. Pair up the dashboard with the muf er, tires and other car parts found on Gugeegue and you might be able to drive away in your own automobile. Â“I gured it would be a lot of work, but it ended up fun,Â” said DeCoster. Â“It makes me feel good because IÂ’m helping other people.Â” What sets this volunteer effort apart from other clean up events after beaches and waterways have been cleared is the Ocean ConservancyÂ’s answer to the question, Â“Now what?Â” Â“The Ocean Conservancy has collected data from around the world for the last two decades,Â” said Eric Nelson, a Marshalls Island Club advisor. Â“We [the students] are not just collecting trash, we are recording how much, and of what type. This data can be used to make meaningful policy decisions that could improve the quality of the worldÂ’s oceans.Â” Students enrolled in the Natural History of Micronesia class at KHS will compile the data and send it off to the Ocean Conservancy to be included in the 2006 International Data report. This same class, as participants of a Jane Goodall Roots and Shoots local chapter, will send before and after photos to the parent organization as one of its local ecology improvement projects. Each year the clean up event grows reaching more states and countries, and people according to an Ocean Conservancy fact sheet, add the Republic of the Marshall Islands to that list. Â“To my knowledge this is the rst time any country in Micronesia has participated,Â” said Nelson. Â“Hawaii and French Polynesia are the current closest participants.Â” KwajaleinÂ’s involvement in the cleanup event went from idea to reality in three really short weeks. Nelson and MIC Co-Advisor Christi Davis planned the Gugeegue event to provide their students with the opportunity to understand that even as young people they can work together to have a bene cial impact on their community. Their second goal, said Nelson, was to have the students see Â“what life on the neighboring islands is like; to help them understand more about the corner of the world in which they live. Â“For a rst effort it was successful,Â” said Nelson. Â“I was really happy at how much social action was generated. I think we built up a level of competency that we could do more and do it better, and even have more fun doing it.Â”Getting trashy Student Crossing Guard Victoria Madore, 10, halts bicycle traf c at the intersection of Lagoon Road and Third Street during the lunchtime rush hour. Her mission is keeping the streets of Kwajalein safe for tiny cycling daredevils. Madore got a little guidance on rules of the road from Kwajalein Police Of cer Tiffany Twilley. Madore is one of 15 elementary school students participating in the School-Age Crossing Guard program launched on Tuesday. Crossing guards will direct traf c on Lagoon Road between Third and Fourth Streets at 11:30 a.m. everyday during the school week. (Photo by J.J. Klein) The mission: safe streets

Jennifer Aakre, left, strolled down the catwalk modeling stylish out ts from the Bargain Bazaar. The Yokwe Yuk Women's Club kicked off its annual membership drive with a poolside fashion show at the adult pool Monday evening. Twelve island beauties from the Kwajalein High School and YYWC struck a pose for the audience showing off everything from silky leopard print lingerie to maternity wear. Chic shoppers on island know the Bargain Bazaar is the place to shop. Managed by volunteers of the YYWC, the Bargain Bazaar raised $17,000 from sales of donated clothing and household items last year. (Photo by Lee Craker) Anne Hosti sinks a putt to put her team in contention for the Chaplain's Cup. Seventy- ve golfers participated in the Chaplain's Cup Golf Tournament, a best ball tourney, on Monday morning. First place went to the team of Jim Hall, Jeff Jones, Kenny Leines and Jim Stepchew. The winning team members will have their names inscribed on the distinctive Chaplain's Cup trophy, a golf ball wedged into a unique piece of coral donated by Ken Hulme. The golf tournament, sponsored by the Chaplain's of ce and supported by Bob Butz and Community Activities, was a fundraiser to purchase 1,000 Marshallese Bibles. "We had hoped to raise about $1,000 from this event," said the Rev. Rick Funk. "Our initial estimate is that we raised about $1,400." Prizes included a bicycle for a hole in one no takers, two putters and golf covers, ten DVD rentals and more. In a best ball tournament all players shoot from the same spot and then take their next shot from the best ball in play. (Photo by J.J. Klein) The ChaplainÂ’s cup
