During most of that time, she has been the primary producer of Window on the Atoll the popular TV program that mirrors daily life here on Kwajalein. In addition to producing each episode, she also shoots, writes, and edits most of them herself. The result is a program that over the years has become a sort of Kwaj institution. Muhich is also responsible for the overall look of the Roller, often utilizing her artistic skills in fun and creative ways to enhance the messages. On behalf of the Ri-katak we would like to thank all the teachers and parents who provided dinners and snacks during the youth basketball season. Your generosity and care was more than appreciated by each student. Ri-katak would also like thank the coaches who sel essly gave their time and experience to coach them: Cassie Rubly Master Sgt. Frank Cota 1st Sgt. Kenneth Mackey Phil Corbin Tom Wright Kelly Busquets Mark and Tarah Yurovchak Child Youth Services staff members, especially Cardale Tademy, Binton Felix, John Welchman and Megan McAndrew. — RI-KATAK REJ BA KOMOL This letter is in response to “School Activities Should be Reserved for Enrolled Students” published in the Dec. 2 issue of the Hourglass Many of us know that the letter written by “KHS Graduates” was targeted at a certain home-schooled senior. This senior made it through Mrs. Oyamot’s English course, has survived six weeks of running with coach, has taken three classes from Mr. Fullerton earning his respect as well as participation points, is taking French I with Ms. B this year, has turned in her homework on time, and obtained terri c grades. This senior, however, doesn’t receive credit for her classes yet still continues to strive for excellence. We as members of the current senior class at KHS are completely behind this senior and are outraged by what has been said. We believe the senior class should have the nal say in whether or not this student should be allowed to participate in I have always been proud of my ag; it means a lot to me. That’s why I get irritated when people disrespect it and don’t realize they are disrespecting it. Maybe our ag means more to people who have actually fought for it. I certainly hope that isn’t the case. I think my feeling would be the same even if I hadn’t fought and served in the Armed Forces. As we live in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, we must also consider the RMI ag.I nd myself lately asking what’s happened to people and their respect for the ag. I’ve only been on Kwajalein a short time, but when I’m in town or on the golf course, I’m amazed at how many people actually ignore the bugle calls and fail to pay respect to our ag as they continue to walk, run or ride their bikes during the 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. bugle calls. Sergeant disappointed at lack of respect for ag These times are signi cant times because that’s when the ags are being raised and lowered. As a proud American Soldier, I’m disappointed at the lack of respect shown around town. Perhaps most people here don’t understand that the See FLAG, Page 12

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2006actually began four years ago in a meeting between the commuter students from Ebeye and former USAKA Commander Col. Jerry Brown. “He was concerned if we had issues,” recounted Michiko Capelle, a senior at Kwajalein High School. One of the seniors at the time, she said that she did not like the name Guest Students. She said that we are not really guest students because this is our homeland; this is where we originated from. So she requested that they change the name. At that time, the students chose Ebeye Students as the new name, but it never caught on. The Kwajalein community continued to inject the word ‘guest’ in the name. The name Ri-katak takes the focus off of the word ‘guests’ and places it squarely Students feel new Ri-katak name makes them real part of Kwaj community, schoolSix Sigma participants recognized at Friday program3 Marshallese hope ‘guest students’ are historyBy JJ KleinReporter“Remember that a man’s name, to him, is the sweetest and most important sound in any language,” said Dale Carnegie. To the Ebeye Guest Students, their new name Ri-Katak has a particularly sweet sound and impacting signi cance. The old name, they hope, is history. “During a meeting with [U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll] Host Nations Representatives, the elder Ebeye Guest Students respectfully requested their name be changed,” said Mary Harris-Wiehe, Student Advisory Council representative for the students. “After taking a vote, it was unanimous to change the program’s name.” “I think that by changing our name it not only gets people’s attention, but it brings attention to who we really are,” said Jefferson Bobo, Kwajalein High School senior, “and the name change meaning describes what we are here to do. We’re here to learn.” Ri-katak is a Marshallese word meaning “those who are learning.” It is pronounced ree-cah-tac or ricotta with a “K” tacked onto the end. The impetus for the name change on education. The current commuter student group believed it was important to be recognized by a name that made them proud and accurately re ected who they are. They felt the old name made them stick out among their peers and in the community. “The label Guest Students kind of undermines the fact that they wanted us to be integrated into and immersed into the school,” Bobo said, “but by labeling us ‘Guest Students’ it was making us stand out and defeating that purpose.” The students agreed that they wanted a name change, but it wasn’t until they received support from Cardale Tademy, Harris-Wiehe and their parents that they felt comfortable addressing this issue. “We started changing our attitudes about this situation because adults started backing us up, and so we had to the courage to talk up more,” said Kitlang Kabua, 15. The students narrowed their name choices down to four possibilities before settling on Ri-katak They almost chose Ri-jikuul – meaning those who go to school but thought that it was too similar to the American word, school. “We wanted to be part of the community too, but with that we wanted to be proud of our country,” said Kabua. “So we chose to pick a very appropriate word for that.” “We wanted to be part of the community too, but with that we wanted to be proud of our country. So we chose to pick a very appropriate word for that.” — Kitlang Kabua, student Hourglass reportsThe Six Sigma program celebrated the accomplishments of Kwajalein Range Services employees and U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll personnel participating in the program on Friday evening. Six Sigma is a program designed to streamline and re ne business processes, nd methods to improve operational effectiveness while meeting the requirement of the customer, said John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Service president. The event showcased the partnership between USAKA and KRS in the Six Sigma program “to help move Kwajalein in a positive direction over the next couple of years,” said USAKA Commander Col. Stevenson Reed. “We can’t do it by ourselves and neither can you, but collectively we can do great things for Kwajalein. We’re not changing what KRS is doing already, we’re complimenting them.” Individuals who were recently certi ed and completed the Yellow Belt training were awarded certi cates. This group worked on a project to improve the new hire process cycle – getting a new employee from arrival on the Kwajalein to working at his desk in less than three days. They also looked at improving the Permanent Change of Station process cycle time. Warehouse employees were recognized for their contribution to the USAKA Lean Six Sigma effort to streamline the receiving process once the warehouses are consolidated. The USAKA Lean Six Sigma program is concentrating its efforts on downsizing the number of warehouses on island to improve ef ciency and savings that will eventually be returned to the Kwajalein community. The following individuals were recognized as KRS 2006 Six Sigma Key Performers, “their projects provided bene ts to achieve and surpass our Six Sigma goals for this year,” said Krystal Peterson, Six Sigma Black Belt.Six Sigma Key Performers: Alan Stone, Suzanne Pyle, Jeff DeLong, Matt Molina, Steve Beuby and Dick Nugent.

Volunteers from the Roi-Namur and Kwajalein communities manned the various games doling out prizes to anyone lucky enough to successfully hit the target with the water balloon or toss the tennis ball through a hole in a wooden Christmas tree. At the hole-in-one putting station a tiny two-year-old girl was so excited to be able to sink the golf ball, with a little help from her mother, and win a prize, besting her four-year-old brother who walked away empty handed. The boy was desperate for another turn with the golf club and asked the volunteer running the station if he could please have another turn. “Yes, but you have to get in line, all the way to the D

The children, ranging in ages from newborn to 12 had their photos taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus and were presented with a gift from the ECCF. Each baby was given a diaper bag crammed with goodies like shoes, clothing and washcloths. Each child at the party received a backpack with age and gender-appropriate speci c gifts. All gifts and prizes were bought with money from the nearly $20,000 raised throughout the year at events like the Roi Chili Cook Off, the Coconut Race and occasional Bingo games on island, as well as generous donations from Roi-Namur and Kwajalein community members. In the spirit of sharing, the Enniburr children sang several songs, and the Enniburr Women’s Club performed a Marshallese dance for the party volunteers and the Roi-Namur community. Afterward everyone headed over to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony, where one lucky Enniburr child was picked by Col. Justin Hirniak, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Range commander, to help light the tree. The Enniburr Christmas party is different from all other Christmas drops and exchanges because it is a day-long celebration and the only event where the Marshallese community is invited to the USAKA-leased island. At all other holiday drops “Santa’s elves” travel to the various islands to deliver gifts. “This is what we work for all year,” said Joe Coleman, ECCF vice-president. “This is the climax to all the work. Just look around and see all the kids playing and having a good time…they look forward to this so much.”“I get more Christmas spirit in these few hours than I’ve probably had for a long time. It’s just nice to be able to give and see the smiles of all these kids.”— Jack Picco, volunteer elf

Wednesday, Dec. 13, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Beware of e-mail scams requesting financial dataGone Phishing The speci c request our employee received is reprinted below. It claims to be from the real nancial institution, Capital One, asking the recipient to go on-line and provide account information. In this case the Web site address is offshore in Belize, Central America. This particular message looks a little crude if you read it carefully, but some others are better written. Remember also, the scammers don’t have to fool everybody. If they can rip off a percentage of the recipients, they make money for the scammers. By Jeff HallidayKRS Managing CounselA Kwajalein Range Service employee at the Huntsville office recently received an e-mail attempt to “phish” for his personal nancial information. Be alert for such scams, and don’t become a victim. Phishing refers to an attempt to get the e-mail recipient to provide personal information such as passwords, account information, usernames or personal identification numbers. Usually the recipient is directed to go to a Web site and enter his personal information. No legitimate business would do this. Often the request includes the look, logos, and other features that make it appear to be coming from a legitimate company – maybe even one you do business with. Ironically, the messages often claim to be helping to protect you from scams or unauthorized intrusions to your account. Another indicator of a possible scam is an instruction in the e-mail to click a link to contact the company. Like the e-mails themselves, such links can appear to be legitimate even when they are not. Any time you need to contact a business, you should initiate the contact through their Web site as you normally would, or phone their publicly listed number.-----Original Message----From: Security Department [mailto: veri cation@capitalone.com ] Subject: Capital One: Unauthorized access to processing centre detected.

The majority of our class fully supports her participation in these activities. This senior won’t take part in graduation, but she will be there to cheer us on. Last year this senior helped immensely with the planning of our Junior/Senior banquet. She attended planning meetings, wrote senior prophecies, purchased food, set-up S o n g s a n d d a n c e s w i l l b e p e r f o r m e d b y Songs and dances will be performed by E b e y e a n d K w a j a l e i n J e b t a s S p e n d Ebeye and Kwajalein Jebtas.

This senior also attended Prom meetings, purchased supplies, and helped set-up and take down decorations for the event amounting to over 20 hours of work. Why is it that when we need help with events this senior is welcome, but when it comes time for seniors to get “pampered” for all their hard work people complain about her being included in our class? This senior bugle calls are intimately linked to the U.S. ag. Several articles have appeared in The Hourglass over the past couple of years explaining the meaning of each bugle call. The last article ran in the Aug.12 issue. The proper thing to do when you hear the bugle during the times listed above is stop and face the direction of the agpoles. How do you expect your children to learn respect for the ag if you do not teach them what to do? And how do we expect our Marshallese neighbors to respect the ags if we continue to be poor examples? A lot of good men and woman fought (and continue to ght) for the freedoms we have. The American ag has been a symbol of our na-may not be a fully-enrolled student at KHS, but she does take classes and has earned the privilege to take part in senior-speci c activities. — Jeff Bobo, Michael Butler, Ashley Fritch, Emily Hendrix, Alex Lollar, Angie Moriyama, Jackie Nast, Ryan See, Leah Simpson, Michael Taylor, Tessa Thimsen, and Ryan Wagnertion for over 200 years. Why, then, does it seem sometimes as if the respect toward the ag has faltered? I ask you to please think about this the next time you hear the bugle calls. Set an example for our children and our workforce. Taps is the last bugle call of the day. On most military installations Taps is played at 11 p.m., but on Kwajalein it is played immediately following Tattoo at 9 p.m. Violating these rules is not a criminal offense, and you won’t go to jail if you don’t follow them. Still, these simple acts show respect for the ag and our country that it represents. Take them no more lightly than you take your freedoms or the people who died for them.
