Kemem COMMENTARY We need to start asking, ‘what can I do?’ Corrections In the Sept. 23 issue, a pool cleaning crew was identi ed as Pools and Beaches personnel. The pool cleaning crews are Buildings and Grounds personnel. In the Sept. 20 issue, Ann Hosti’s name was spelled as Anne. The Hourglass regrets the errors. Classi ed ad deadlines are: For Wednedsay’s issue, noon Saturday; for Saturday’s issue, noon, Thursday.We baby boomers remember a young John F. Kennedy standing at the podium on his inauguration day in 1961 and speaking those famous words, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” It was the height of the Cold War, and every American felt he or she was involved in it. There was a draft to ll the military’s ranks, and taxes were high to pay for the strong defenses we needed against the Soviet Union. There were no draft ‘deferments’ then. Even the rich and famous answered the call to duty. Remember Elvis? Most of our elected of cials were combat veterans of World War II or Korea, and some of them had served in both wars. All of our presidents since Franklin Roosevelt had served in the military and again, some in combat. Americans were making sacri ces across all economic and social classes for what was a common cause. Kennedy also said in that famous speech, “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and success of liberty.” Most Americans were united behind Kennedy. It was Camelot, and Kennedy was not only the American president, he was the entire free world’s president. But between then and now, so many things have happened. Kennedy was assasinated, and Lyndon Johnson took us into Vietnam in force. Americans stayed in Vietnam for almost a decade and more than 58,000 died there. The riots and war protests almost tore the country apart. Vietnam ended, but then, Richard Nixon was forced to resign the presidency because of Watergate. Our trust and con dence in the government was severely shaken. Our once united country has been divided ever since. We are now involved in what some are calling World War III and what President George W. Bush calls the “decisive ideological struggle of the 21st Century.” And still, we are more divided than ever. One of the talking heads on TV wondered why there aren’t more ‘grass roots’ anti-Iraq War protests. To me, the answer is simple. There’s no draft. If little Johhny or Suzie was being drafted and sent to Iraq, what do you think would happen? I truly am afraid of what would take place in our country if it was decided that a draft had to be instituted again. Would there be riots and protests in the streets as there were in the ’60s? If we really are in the decisive struggle of the 21st Century, why is only 1 percent of the American population in the ght? Why are our taxes so low? Why is there howling indignation over $3 per gallon gasoline? Why does the NATO commander in Afghanistan have to almost beg for more troops? Are America and Americans still willing to pay any price and bear any burden in the defense of our liberty? Would we ever be willing to once again ask what we can do for our country and not the other way around? Recent polls have said that most Americans believe we are in World War III, and we face possibly the most dangerous times in our history. It makes Kennedy’s words ring in my ears.

As milk is no longer shipped by air transport, it is necessary to purchase ultra-pasteurized milk to insure freshness, said Fearon, which is more costly than standard pasteurized milk found in grocery stores stateside. Retail Merchandising staff are searching for lower priced food sources said Fearon, who is presently in California and Hawaii actively investigating potential suppliers.

Increased prices in tobacco products are the result of increased purchase prices and operating expenses, which include labor wage increases, and re ect retail pricing stateside. KRS admits some of the merchandise at these stores is more expensive than stateside prices and out-of-date. They point to excess inventory accumulated over the past years and increased customer Internet shopping as culprits of this dilemma. “We have been actively working this problem over the past 18 months and have reduced our aged inventories through discounts, though resale on the wholesale market, and though surveying and disposal,” said Fearon. “We are now purchasing new and attractive merchandise that will be available for sale in the near future.” In addition to working out the problems of excess inventory, the Retail Merchandising department is exploring better and more cost effective ways for purchasing merchandise, hoping to pass on savings directly to the Kwajalein customer. “Instead of the current process where we purchase goods through supply contracts with vendors, we are exploring the use of direct purchasing from large discount stores, taking advantage of their large volume discounts as well as obtaining the latest fashions in goods directly from their stores and discount outlets,” said Fearon.“Because of our small community, we cannot achieve the same volume pricing that a large chain store might enjoy.

Saturday, Sept. 30, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 3D Research meteorologists providesome answers to questions, myths El Ni o is a storm or tropical cyclone False El Nio (Spanish for “the Christ Child”) is a phenomenon which takes place in the Pacific Ocean about every 3 to 10 years. When El Nio occurs, it is because the air circulation between the eastern and western Paci c Ocean changes. In a normal situation, easterly trade winds continually push warm water on the surface of the ocean westward, keeping the eastern Paci c temperatures a bit cooler. During an El Nio, the easterly trade winds weaken or even reverse, allowing the warm water to slosh back toward the eastern Paci c, resulting in warmer than normal sea surface temperatures over the eastern Paci c. Because sea surface temperature plays a signi cant role in weather patterns, a strong El Nio event can cause droughts, ooding, and increased storm frequency. Furthermore, these changes can have a ripple effect, in uencing sheries, agriculture, and even the global economy. Hurricanes and typhoons are the same beast True. Hurricanes and typhoons are both tropical cyclones with similar characteristics but different origins. Both events form between the tropical latitudes of 5 and 20 degrees; called hurricanes over the Atlantic Ocean as well as the east and central Paci c, and typhoons over the west Paci c Ocean. Different regions of the world have other names for tropical cyclones, such as “Willy-Willy” in Australia, and “Baguio” in the Philippines. Whatever you call them, storms that reach this magnitude are dangerous and can create considerable damage with storm surges and destructive winds over 74 mph (64 knots).

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 30, 2006 5See WEATHER, Page 6 A rainy day commute is a common occurrence for Kwajalein residents W e a t h e r m y t h s We do not get lightning in the tropics. False. Lightning is a necessary component of every thunderstorm. Thunderstorms form when clouds grow to great heights due to strong vertical air movement. If the cloud builds to a height where temperatures are below freezing, ice crystals will form in the cloud tops. Ice and liquid water are electrically charged, but they are charged oppositely. It is believed that the interaction between liquid water drops and ice crystals leads to charge separations within the cloud. When the electric potential that results from the charge separation grows large enough, it will discharge (to the ground, ocean, air, another cloud, or even within its own cloud) – seen to us as a ash of light in the sky. Two-thirds of all thunderstorms occur in the tropics; however thunderstorms rarely occur over the oceans in any part of the world, including here in the Paci c. Over the oceans, stable temperatures and a lack of land features, which help to lift the air, fail to create strong enough updrafts to lift liquid water above the freezing level. If liquid water drops cannot interact with ice crystals, the charge separation realized is usually not suf cient to produce lightning. On Kwajalein, we experience only 12 thunderstorm days a year. For those of you who were not awakened, our last major thunderstorm occurred around 2 a.m. on July 21. Lightning sensors detected 22 lightning strikes in the vicinity of Kwajalein Island. According to long-time residents, it was one of the loudest and most visually impressive storms in recent memory. It’s hot in the tropics Ok, so maybe this is not a legitimate weather myth, but it was a concern I had before moving here. Of course it’s true, but sometimes it can be even hotter at higher latitudes. Although temperatures around the atoll seldom reach 90 degrees, when you factor in humidity, the heat index routinely approaches 100 degrees, making it feel much hotter. However, during the summer months in certain regions of the continental U.S., heat waves can push the heat index well into the hundreds. On Aug. 3, the heat index for much of The Marine Department synchrolift shows damage suffered during a storm in December.

Saturday, Sept. 30, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Look out below Tree trimmers perform job critical to safety Tree trimmers on K w ajalein and Roi Nam u r perform a hazardous job in order to keep residents safe. By J.J. KleinReporterEvery time tree trimming work crews climb coconut trees they risk their safety to ensure the safety of the Kwajalein community. Falling coconuts and ying palm branches are obvious hazards that could cause damage to property and serious, sometimes fatal injury to people. “We do not want the coconuts getting big enough to hurt someone if they fall, so we’ve had to step up our trimming,” said Tom Davis, Kwajalein Range Services Building and Grounds superintendent. “According to [our] contract we are supposed to trim twice a year, but we are now trimming some areas every 60 days and the majority of the areas every 90 days,” Climbing and trimming palm trees is dif cult, exhaustive and hazardous work, vital to this community. Well-trained, experienced tree trimming crews haul themselves up a tree using climbing belts with a sharp machete in hand to hack away at palm fronds. Muscles become tense from climbing and then bracing against the tree trunk resulting in exhaustion. It becomes necessary for climbers to take short breaks between tree climbing to recover.

Building and Grounds staff want the community to know it could help by removing pots, grills and toys from the fall zone when trimming is in progress. “The community is asked to notify Buildings and Grounds when a tree requires trimming,” said Dick Nugent, KRS Environmental, Safety and Health manager indicating how the community can assist tree trimming crews. “Residents are asked to not approach an area in which See WEATHER, Page 16 the Atlantic Coast reached 110 degrees, from Boston to Washington, D.C., and the heat index in Virginia Beach hit a sweltering 116 degrees. So, at least sometimes, it can be cooler on Kwajalein. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning; red sky at night, sailors delight. True – most places. When the sun is on the horizon (either morning or evening) light shines through the atmosphere at an oblique angle. As the light shines through atmospheric particles (dust, water droplets, or even air molecules), only the longer wavelengths – toward the red end of the light spectrum are allowed to pass through, creating a red looking sky. Shorter wavelengths – toward the blue end of the light spectrum – become scattered away. This is known as Rayleigh scattering. Small, atmospheric particles are usually present with a high pressure, fair weather system. So, assuming weather systems generally move from the west to the east (as they do over most of the earth, but rarely in the tropics), a reddish sky in the morning (sailors take warning) is due to the rising sun shining through particles that are being pushed to the east by an approaching low pressure system (a storm). At dusk, the sky will appear red as the setting sun shines through particles associated with a high pressure system bringing dry air and fair weather from the west. Because weather systems in the tropics generally move from east to west, this Vanessa Richard WEATHER, from Page 5 the trimmers are working as they could drop a nut or branch onto the person.” Residents should also be aware of plans to remove more trees on island. “If a tree is too high and narrow to climb, if it poses a threat to housing or is a safety hazard, then we’ll remove the tree,” said Davis. “Housing can’t be replaced once the tree falls on it. “Be appreciative of the climbers,” continued Davis, “it is one of the hardest jobs on the island.”


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 30, 2006 7 First sergeant is eyes, ears for all issues important to civilian, military residents By J.J. KleinReporterSeventeen years in the Army has taught 1st Sgt. Kenneth Mackey the signi cance of teamwork, a core value he used at his last duty assignment as a 1st Sgt. with NATO in Naples, Italy.On another Army post a 1st Sgt. in Mackey’s position would be the eyes and ears on enlisted issues for the commander. As Senior Enlisted Advisor to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander Col. Stevenson Reed, Mackey’s role expanded to include issues affecting all military personnel and issues important to the Kwajalein community. That’s a pretty big role for someone of Mackey’s rank, a job typically held by a garrison Sgt. Major on a bigger installation with a greater military presence.“My key role is to be involved with quality of life [issues] as well as support community activities. I feel it is very important to be involved and let the community know that we, [the USAKA Command Team] care,” said Mackey. “Right now, I am still learning the structure of USAKA and the tenants within the organization. My main concern is the Commander’s Kwajalein Area Beauti cation Program,” said Mackey. “The biggest challenge for me is guring out what agency is required to do what thing. Kwaj is different, everything here is contract based. It’s not like I can just say, ‘Hey you, cut down that tree.’” Mackey is determined to follow in the footprints left by 1st Sgt. Gwen Lewis and continue an awareness and appreciation for the community and workforce. It is important to him that island residents understand he will give input and guidance, but is also very willing to accept ideas and input form others as well. “A mentor of mine once told me, ‘If you need to yell at a Soldier to get your point across then yell, but the sooner you understand your rank and the responsibility it holds, the sooner you as a leader will understand that there is no need to waste that energy.’ Bottom line, treat people the way you want to be treated, regardless of rank or position,” said Mackey. When there is a community event on Kwajalein, it’s a good bet Mackey is around somewhere, probably at the elbow of the commander, and when his of cial duties are done he sticks around as a member of the community. “My goal is pretty much to ensure that the community as a whole gets from me, what I want from them, teamwork. It is essential to work together as a community to take care and preserve the lifestyle we have here on Kwaj,” said Mackey. “There is a lot to be done, and I feel, together, we can improve many things to make it better for everyone.” Mackey didn’t come to Kwajalein with a duf e bag full of expectations. In fact, before he interviewed for the position with Command Sgt. Maj. David Lady of U.S. Space and Missile Defense Command, he didn’t know too much about Kwajalein. “I actually didn’t know what it was. I looked for it on the Internet and found nothing,” said Mackey. “When I nally did get here, I remember being on the plane thinking, ‘They sent me to Gilligan’s Island.’” When he is not assisting the Colonel or attending a community function, Mackey can be found hitting the boards at the Corlett Recreation Center. He loves to play and coach basketball, and admitted, “I am big on sports, although now, I am feeling the early stages of old age and bad knees.” Thank goodness love of music isn’t affected by old age and bad knees. Just as with basketball, when Mackey becomes interested in something, he gets involved in all aspects of a topic. Mackey isn’t content to just listen to music; he enjoys playing DJ and working the tables. “I am really big on music production and working with people who like to sing and write. When my equipment gets here, I’ll be more than willing to help anybody who has musical interests,” said Mackey. Mackey has had a typical military career hopskipping all over the world from California to Panama to Saudi Arabia. At each place a certain visual image imprints itself into the brain. Mackey already has a favorite Kwajalein image that makes him chuckle. “I think the best thing about Kwaj is the kids. They are so happy to just ride their bikes to school and play in the street. The cutest thing is the little ones, who ride their bike and they are so little but they are peddling like they are in a race for time,” said Mackey. “Best part of my day.” top 1st Sgt.

The Break-Up A once-loving couple whose happily-ever-after quickly turned into a never-again nds their crumbling romance complicated when both parties refuse to move out of the pair’s recently purchased condo. The Break-Up is a romantic comedy that starts where all the others end. The future once looked promising for thirtysomething couple Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) and Gary (Vince Vaughn), but lately it seems like a series of increasingly petty and intolerable squabbles have snuffed any semblance of romance in their relationship. Their confrontation endlessly fueled by mean-spirited suggestions of revenge tactics from friends and family and their stubborn refusal to budge resulting in an excruciating stalemate, Brooke and Gary ultimately decide to spitefully stick it out as hostile roommates until the weaker party eventually admits defeat. As the competition to drive one another out grows increasingly intense and outrageous, however, Brooke eventually comes to the realization that she’s not ghting for possession of the condominium as much as she is ghting to salvage her relationship with the man she once viewed as the love of her life.

It never snows in the tropics False. About 3 miles up in the clouds, the temperature is below freezing, and cold enough to snow. Much of the rain that falls in the tropics actually starts off as snow crystals, melting as it falls through the warmer air, reaching the ground as rain. You can’t always see a squall True A squall by de nition is a strong wind that suddenly increases by at least 16 knots and is sustained at 22 knots or more for at least one minute. This weather phenomenon can occur with or without rain, so a squall can sometimes be dif cult to see coming. In the last year, only 5 squalls have been of cially reported on Kwajalein. The water rotates counter-clockwise as it drains in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere because of the rotation of the Earth. False. As the Earth rotates, the atmosphere above it is affected by a force called the Coriolis Force. The effect, appropriately named the Coriolis Effect, directs uid motions such as the air swirling into a low-pressure weather system. The direction of rotation in such a system is always “cyclonic” counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere. Yet, as many of us were mistakenly taught in our formative years, the effect cannot be seen in a venue such as our bathrooms. The water drains too quickly to be affected by the Coriolis Effect, and the direction of rotation is more often in uenced by shape or other slight motions that induce the direction. However, in a controlled laboratory setting, the Coriolis Effect actually can be seen on a small scale. With a very smooth, symmetric container and no external forces affecting very slow draining water, the direction of rotation is always cyclonic. So, in a typical bathroom, the Coriolis Effect is one force of nature you shouldn’t expect to nd.
