The Sept. 30 issue of The Hourglass incorrectly indicated that shopping/ buying was done at the Kwajalein Art Guild Open House. The open house was a forum to showcase artists’ work; no shopping/purchasing took place on the premises. The Hourglass regrets the error.It seems like just yesterday, but next week I will have been in command here for three months. This has given me time to get settled, observe the command and develop my philosophy. It is also the beginning of a new scal year. Funds are again being staffed at the highest level of our government; however, we expect our level of funding to be accepted. To get through these tough days I have listed how I expect all leaders to conduct business and themselves. I realize that the U. S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site is not a tactical unit, but it is a government installation. That being said, I’d like to share my command philosophy with each of you. The things that are most important to me, in no particular order of priority, are: • Safety: Someone is in charge of everything we do. If you are not sure what you’re doing, stop and ask! If you are dissatis ed with the answer, ask again. Arti cial urgency causes more accidents. Don’t be a victim. • Teamwork: Open and candid communication is most important. Share good ideas. Live the Army values. Know your people. No spotlight professionals. Do what’s right to get the mission accomplished. • Readiness: Readiness is the cornerstone of our profession, and I will look at this in all we do with our equipment, personnel and the community. • Caring: Our institution is all about people. Without your hearts and minds, we are lost. Caring equals building independence not dependence. Do not mix personal care with person comfort. • Attitude: We must be business oriented and must always consider our customers. A positive attitude will help us maintain our current customers, but will help us get new ones as well. Your attitude re ects your gratitude. Immediately upon taking command, I conducted an offsite with my senior leaders to come up with a mission, vision and strategic plan on where USAKA/RTS is going in the future. The budget is decreasing, and we must change the way we do business to succeed. As a result of this offsite, a transformation team was instituted. These hard-working individuals meet every Wednesday to develop a plan which will be staffed through the leadership of Space and Missile Defense Command and maintain systems to meet our customer needs and use distributed operations to meet budgetary constraints. I want to reshape USAKA/RTS into a leaner, more relevant organization with a broader mission capability and greater customer access, thereby leading to a more diverse customer base that ensures continued success. The way I see it, FY07 will be the year of planning and FY08 will be the year of execution. The results of the transformation team’s efforts will be forthcoming in November at the Town Hall meeting. That’s right, the rst Kwaj Town Hall meeting since my taking command is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday evening, Nov. 14. As the time draws nearer, we will advertise the event in The Hourglass and on the AFN roller. Remaining relevant and vital will take a team effort. Let’s all work on this effort together.Correction

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 7, 2006 3 See SOLDIER, Page 16Army program helps young Marshallese overcome barriers to joining U.S. military By J.J. KleinReporterYoung Marshallese men and women interested in a career in the U.S. Army just got a huge leg up from U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll green suiters and civilians in the form of a voluntary Army orientation program. The Recruit Indoctrination Program is intended to acquaint the young men and women with Army customs and discipline, provide them with skills and techniques necessary to pass the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery and help raise physical tness levels to standards required for entrance into the Army. Participation in the program does not guarantee en l istment, b ut it d oes great l y improve t h e c h ances o f success, said Lt. Col. Jeffrey Klein, USAKA Host Nation of ce director. “The training that the Army gives you while you are a Soldier is used to ensure freedom around the world, but once you decide to leave it, the training you received is valuable on the outside,” said Maj. Eric Everts, InterContinental Ballistic Missile test director. Over sixty highly-motivated Marshallese youth attended the rst information brie ng last week after word got out about RIP, signi cantly more than had been expected by the all-volunteer program coordinators. These participants will have to maintain that same level of motivation ve times a week for the next ve months as they are challenged to complete two-mile runs, perform timed pushups and sit-ups, and learn how and when to salute. In addition to physical training, they will receive classroom training in Math and English, take practice ASVAB tests and be required to speak only English to help improve English language skills necessary for success in the armed forces. Aside from the usual challenges every baby-faced recruit struggles with when experiencing the military for the rst time, these Marshallese young people will have to overcome speci c logistical hurdles. “Speci c obstacles to these Marshallese trainees include language barriers, work schedule con icts, and the hassle of taking the ferry to and from Ebeye,” said Everts. “I applaud these men for stepping up, not only to make themselves better, but the possibility of getting valuable, skilled training that they can bring back to their community.” Interest in this pilot program grew out of a desire to join a smaller training program Master Sgt. Frank Cota developed for ve young Marshallese men. These ve excelled under Cota’s tutelage, and USAKA recognized the potential for a structured program that would address the overwhelming interest in Army enlistment. Program coordinators and instructors, all military Soldiers and civilians with prior military service except one, volunteer after-work hours because they have a strong desire to help these young men and women ful ll their goals and become successful in the military. This viewpoint grows out of the idea that those who go before bear a responsibility to help those who come after. “First, it is my duty as a Soldier to be part of anything that will help the U.S. Army become a better Army, and second, it is the right thing to do. We are living on their soil, anything I can do to help, I will,” said Mackey. “The USAKA commander did not tell one USAKA Soldier that we will have this program or that they will be a part of it. We are all here because we want to be here, not because we have to.” “So many [Marshallese people] have asked me questions about the Army and my career,” said CW3 Phyllis Mitchell, USAKA Food Service/Medical evaluator. “As a leader it is very important that we don’t miss the opportunity to help a [potential] Army or military recruit Hid eo F re dd y, l e ft J ena i Kib o i an d Ab on A re l ong were among the Marshallese signing up for the Army program.

(Photos by J.J. Klein) By J.J. KleinReporter“Hut, hut, ho,” called out the person in the second seat of the canoe, and in unison six people lifted their paddles out of the water and with precision sliced through the water with their paddles on opposite sides of the canoe. With each stroke the canoe surged forward. Crank up the Hawaii Five-0 theme song. This is the sport of outrigger canoeing. In just a few weeks Kwajalein residents will have the opportunity to be weekend warriors of this sport when two outrigger canoes are introduced into the community. Before Kwajalein residents can climb into a canoe and hit the water, a core group of people are being trained to captain the canoes, “so when the outriggers are introduced into the community we can move forward quickly and get more people involved,” said Paul McGrew, SBM supervisor. The newly formed Small Boat Marina Outrigger Canoe Club held a two-day workshop last weekend, to train 13 volunteers to become steerers. “In a few weeks the public will be noti ed when we will have a community meeting regarding the SBM Outrigger Canoe Club,” said McGrew. “Everyone is welcome. Stay tuned.” An outrigger canoe is a type of canoe with one or two oats attached to wooden arms suspended on either side of the hull providing greater stability. A canoe with a single outrigger usually has the outrigger extension fastened to the left, or port side, of the boat supporting “It is peaceful on the water, resting in the middle of the lagoon after a hard paddle and listening to the quietness. Try it.”— Paul McGrew, Small Boat Marina supervisor Canoeing Canoeing Canoeing Canoeing Canoeing anoein Canoeing Canoeing P a r a d i s e s t y l e Paradise-style

Out of respect for the popularity of outrigger canoe racing in Hawaii, it is common practice to use the Hawaiian names for the parts of the boat and activities associated with the sport. The canoe is called the “wa’a,” the oat is known as the “ama” and the term for the extended arm or spar is “iako.” Both canoes on Kwajalein are Polynesian style, six-man, single outrigger canoes originally used on Johnston Island and sent to Kwajalein a few years ago when the base closed, according to McGrew. Six–man outrigger canoes are commonly referred to as OC6. Every seat on the canoe has a signi cant role in paddling. Seat number six is the steerer and captain of the canoe. This seat gives a view of all paddlers and assists with paddling technique and motivates the crew. Seat number two counts the paddle strokes on each side of the canoe and then calls out the stroke switch with the, “Hut, hut, ho” chant. This helps paddlers to synchronize their strokes with each other “The number one seat is the stroker, he/she sets the them,” said Tom Anderson, who persisted in getting the OC6’s in the water. “All paddles should enter the water at the same time and exit the same time. After some practice you can feel the movement of the boat and feel the timing.” This level of synchronicity is a function of constant communication from the steerers to paddlers and paddling skill. “With any sport, you need to nd the right amount of endurance, strength, balance and teamwork, but with paddling a big part is learning the proper paddling techniques,” said Amanda Curtis, a recreational paddler in Hawaii a few years ago. “For instance, if a paddler is off count or off balance the canoe can easily ip over or “huli.” Aside from competitive outrigger racing, interested participants will nd a thrill in “gliding across the water, faster than you would expect,” commented McGrew. “It is peaceful on the water, resting in the middle of the lagoon after a hard paddle and listening to the quietness. Try it.” Members of the Small Boat Marina Outrigger Canoe Club check out one of the craft before taking to the water. Sue Zehr, left, and Kelly Busquets, Ona Moore and Chris Maurer lash the iako to the outrigger.

Saturday, Oct. 7, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass Fire Prevention Week is Sunday through Oct. 146COOKING FIRE PREVENTION TIPS Cooking is leading cause of home res See SWIMMERS, Page 16Hourglass ReportsIt’s time for Fire Prevention Week, and from Sunday through Oct.14, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Fire and Emergency Services is joining forces with the nonpro t National Fire Protection Association to remind local residents to ‘Prevent Cooking Fires: Watch What You Heat.’ During this year’s fire safety campaign, re ghters and safety advocates will be spreading the word about the dangers of cooking res—most of which result from unattended cooking—and teaching local residents how to prevent cooking res from starting in the rst place. According to the latest NFPA research, cooking is the leading cause of home res. One out of three home res begins in the kitchen—more than any other place in the home. Cooking res are also the leading cause of home re-related injuries. NFPA data concludes that the primary cause of house fires is • Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, broiling, or boiling food. • If you must leave the room, even for a short period of time, turn off the stove. • When you are simmering, baking, or roasting food, check it regularly, stay in the home, and use a timer to remind you. • If you have young children, use the stove’s back cooking equipment resulting in 270 deaths and 4,230 injuries to non re ghting personnel. Leaving the kitchen for only a few seconds can result in a house re. The re department hopes Fire Prevention Week will help the community before it suffers a damaging lesson. Fire Prevention Week is actively supported by re departments across the country. This is the 85th year that re departments have observed Fire Prevention Week, making it the longest running public health and safety observance on record. burners whenever possible. Keep children and pets at least three feet away from the stove. • When you cook, wear clothing with tight tting sleeves. • Keep potholders, oven mitts, wooden utensils, paper and plastic bags, towels, and anything else that can burn, away from your stovetop. • Clean grease from burners and stovetops. Swimmers breaking records, personal bests this season By Kim McCormick“Swimmers take your blocks, on your mark.” Splash! Kwajalein community members gathered at the family pool for the second swim meet of the fall 2006 season on Monday. “Meets are exciting because you get to improve your times,” commented Julie Alves, 13, a swimmer since 1998. “I improved my 100-yard freestyle time today.” “I like meets because everyone’s watching me,” said Alan Rosenthal, 8, who improved his 25-meter butter y time by one second this season. Other swimmers who are breaking personal best times this season by eight seconds or more, or breaking pool records, are Justin DeCoster, Grace Everts, Julianne Kirchner, Shannon Larkin, Mary McPhatter, Emma Peacock, and Michael Taylor. Swimmers practice three days a week to improve their stroke quality and speed. And then it’s meet day. “We are the Mako’s and we couldn’t be prouder…if you didn’t hear us we’ll shout a little louder! Who’s the best? Barracudas! Who’s going to win? Barracudas”! These chants, and others led by senior swimmers, start the meet and gear everyone up for friendly competition in the pool. “I like diving in the best, when you’re ying through the air, wheee!” exclaimed Addison Cossey, 9, who in addition to diving enjoys the snow cones provided by Swanby Ice Alan Rosenthal, 8, swims the 25-meter freestyle.

Our goal is to offer housing residents assistance by providing them with clear and concise yard maintenance guidelines and a self-help program that will support their yard maintenance needs. The more we can do to support residential yard maintenance needs, the better our chances at attaining a successful island beauti cation program. Yard Maintenance Guidelines: a Residents of family housing and unaccompanied trailers are responsible for maintaining the grounds surrounding their quarters. Yard mowing and trimming should be carried out at least 50 feet from the residence, to the road or fire lane, or to the midpoint between adjoining quarters, whichever is closer. b.

Cars A pedal-to-the-metal race car determined to prove his worth on the tracks discovers that life isn’t always about crossing the nish line rst in Toy Story director John Lasseter’s mechanically minded tale of friendship and loyalty. Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) may be just a rookie, but he’s convinced that he can realize his dream of zooming by the checkered ag if he can only make it to California in time to compete in the upcoming Piston Cup Championship. When Lightning takes a detour into the slow-moving, Route 66 town of Radiator Springs, however, it begins to appear as if his shot at the big time has effectively stalled out. Of course, Lightning’s exciting cross-country trek wasn’t all for naught, and after befriending such quirky Radiator Springs residents as Sally the Porsche (voice of Bonnie Hunt), Doc Hudson (voice of Paul Newman), and Mater the Tow Truck (voice of Larry the Cable Guy), the eager young racer learns that sometimes life is more about the voyage than the outcome of the race. Fast and Furious 3-Tokyo Drift A frustrated teen from a broken home, Sean Boswell (Lucas Black) is an outsider looking to make a name for himself on the illegal street racing circuit. When Sean is busted by the police for his high-speed exploits and given the option of either spending time behind bars or moving overseas to live with his no-nonsense, military man father who’s currently stationed in Tokyo, the young rebel packs his bags and sets his sights on Nippon. Though at rst reluctant to adapt to the unfamiliar customs and foreign code of honor of his new home, Sean soon strikes up a friendship with American speed freak Twinkie (Bow Wow), a like-minded race fan who schools the inexperienced newcomer in the pulsepounding world of drift-racing. Nacho Libre Jared Hess (of Napoleon Dynamite fame) directs this bizarre comedy starring Jack Black as Nacho, a young man who works as a cook in the Mexican monastery where he was raised. When the institution faces a nancial crisis, Nacho decides that he must come to the aid of the house of God.

A week after the initial orientation, over 75 RIP participants showed up at the rst physical tness training session, motivated and prepared to run. “The way I look at our leaders [of RIP], I think they expect to bring everything out of us. They are not going to waste their time,” said Binton Felix, potential RIP recruit. “I heard about these guys setting this up; it’s such a good opportunity for getting help and getting opportunities before joining the Army.” “Bottom line, if you want to join the Army and get a headstart on learning how the Army operates, RIP is a great place to start,” said Mackey. “The program is designed to give anyone the basics they need to enlist into the Army and go on to be successful. It’s open to anyone, and we will do our best to help those that desire to serve the Army....Hooah!” For more information on sports schedules, call 53331 Soccer schedule, standingsMen’s A Fish........................................................................................................6 2 0 Spartans I.............................................................................................5 2 0 One Talk................................................................................................3 4 1 Locals....................................................................................................0 6 1 Men’s B Spartans II............................................................................................6 0 0 MI High School ....................................................................................3 3 0 Ebeye Public........................................................................................0 6 0 Women’s Spartans I.............................................................................................5 1 2 Kick Back..............................................................................................6 2 0 T’N’T Girls............................................................................................ 3 2 2 Strikers..................................................................................................3 4 0 Spartans II............................................................................................0 8 0Tuesday No Games Columbus Day Holiday ObservedWednesday 5:15 p.m.................Men’s B Spartans II (Boys) vs. Spartans II (Girls) 6:45 p.m...................................Men’s A OneTalk vs. Locals (make-up) 8 p.m........................................Men’s A Spartans I vs. Fish (make-up)Thursday 6 p.m................................Women’s T’N’T Girls vs. Strikers (make-up)Friday 5:15 p.m................Men’s B Spartans II vs. MI High School (tentitave) 6:45 p.m...............................................Men’s A Tournament (One Talk) 8 p.m......................................................................Men’s A TournamentSaturday 5:15 p.m....................................................................Women’s #4 vs. #5 at each meet – a must for swimmers and spectators alike! “Seeing the kids work hard is the best part,” explained Head Coach Sarah Stepchew, who has been involved with the team since 1996. She has seen many changes, such as the addition of longer events at the request of the swimmers, and has been impressed that some things stay the same, like the number of swimmers from year-to-year. “Pools and Beaches is very supportive of practice and meet times, as well as providing training for coaches and lifeguards,” noted Stepchew. The team wouldn’t exist without all the help from parents who run the entire organization, including the board, coaches, starters, announcers and timers. And of course, there are plenty of swimmers – 97 to be exact SWIMMERS, from Page 6– from the youngest, Tristan Ohler, 4, to the oldest, Michael Taylor, 17. This year, the team also includes 15 swimmers from Ebeye, sponsored by Pam Duffy, Mary Harris and Judy Kirchner. The community is welcome to attend the last two meets of the season, Oct. 23 and Nov.13, to cheer for the swimmers and applaud the volunteers.
