Reader feels Hourglass didn’t properly honor Gerald Ford Here we go again. One more year comes to an end One more year about to begin One more time to lose or win One more change in the wind One more love to gain or send One more choice to break or mend One more chance to make a friend Here we go again. Enjoy the journey. — Rick Funk At 3:30 p.m., this past Sunday I parked my bike in the rack at the side of Macys. I mailed the boxes I had brought with me. When I returned to my bike, someone had taken my wallet. It was bad enough to have my money taken, but this person, and I am sure you know who you are, also stole all of me. All of my personal identity is gone, nursing and drivers license and credit cards which will be of no bene t to you. I don’t know if you are aware how dif cult it will be for me to replace all of this identi cation. This theft was done in the daylight, and if anyone was aware of this action, I would like to know. If anyone nds my wallet, the color is camel and is a tri-fold check book style. I am a caregiver on Kwaj and if you know me and can look me in the face, lay your head down and sleep at night, then you have no morals or consicence. I will never be that trusting again as long as I work here. — Sandra Steveson I have been patient and held my tongue on many occasions concerning articles that have appeared in the The Hourglass but with the last issue, I can no longer be silent.During this past week America lost a former president and commanderin-chief. Though his presidency was brief, it came at a pivotal time in America’s history. The scandal of Watergate, the resignation of the previous president, the end of the Vietnam War were just a few of the issues Gerald Ford had to deal with, basically healing a much divided country.Instead of a tribute to this man, readers of The Hourglass were treated to a cover story on a Kwaj Kid’s adventures in Italy as she embarks on a career in the fashion industry, three pages worth. Yes, her parents have every right to be proud, but wouldn’t this have been best if they had written it in a personal blog or perhaps a family newsletter that they could have sent to those that actually care about what is going on in this young lady’s life? I am not one of those people and I would wager that the majority of the readers of The Hourglass feel the same as I do on this matter. The death of Ford was relegated to the back page and then the story was more on the military traditions of the funeral rather than a story on the man himself.It is my understanding that The Hourglass is a military installation publication. Shouldn’t there have been more attention and respect paid to the passing of Gerald Ford and less attention given to the travels and photo ops of a Kwaj Kid? — James W. Hart A little new year’s poemBy Cardale Tademy Thank you, Kwajalein community, for allowing me to serve you. I didn’t know anybody, or what I was getting into when the offer was made for me to come to Kwajalein, just like the rest of you. Trying to say thank you by name would mean someone would be left out, so this is for all of you who allowed me to serve, along side you, in some small way. You know who you are, and from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet and with all of my heart, I say thank you. You trusted me with the lives of the young people on this island, and I hope and pray that you saw my heart and not just my exterior.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 6, 2007 3 rules for U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll residents; a modi ed USAKA Regulation 385-9 Recreational Water Safety went into effect Jan. 1. The previous regulation, written in 1995, was outdated. • Kwaj Kid returns: Recording jazz artist Andrea Lindborg returned to her roots. While visiting the island, Lindborg performed two shows with several other on-island musicians. • General’s visit: Lt. Gen. Larry J. Dodgen, commanding general, Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Strategic Command, visited U.S. Army Kwajalein Jan. 10-12. “I learn something •Fishing tournaDespite prevailing winds gusting to 26 knots and high seas, Kwajalein Atoll anglers trolled the See FEBRUARY, Page 4 2 0 0 6 — y e a r t h a t w a s 2006 — year that was January waters surrounding Kwajalein and Roi-Namur for 11 hours in hopes of reeling in a winning category sh for the Big Strike Fishing Tournament. There were 27 boats and 125 Kwajalein Atoll anglers in the Kwajalein Atoll International Sport shing Club-sponsored event, setting a new record for the number of Kwajalein shing tournament participation. • Fiber optic: A survey ship surveyed the route between the RMI and Guam as the rst tangible step to laying ber optic cable. Using sonar to investigate the ocean oor, the survey crew created a global positioning system-supported map which will be used to lay the cable. The route will be approximately 3,000 kilometers and may go as deep as 9,000 meters. The cable project will cost between $50 and 60 million. • Air traf c controllers leave : The Federal Aviation Administration air traf c controllers departed Kwajalein after 40 years. Department of the Army civilian air traf c controllers replaced FAA personnel. • Two power outages occurred at the island’s power plant on Jan. 29. The rst at 12:52 p.m., which affected many residents and some retail facilities, required only about six minutes for recovery. The second was at 8:48 p.m., and the entire island went dark for about half an hour. Crew members prepare to deploy sonar equipment to survey the cable route from Kwajalein to Guam. February • Joint commitee : A delegation including representatives from the Republic of the Marshall Islands, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, SMDC and U.S. Paci c Command met in Honolulu for the RMI/U.S. Joint Committee Meeting. The meeting, required biannually by the U.S./RMI amended compact agreement, was hosted by PACOM. •Management town hall: Michael C. Schexnayder, deputy to the commander for Research, Development and Acquisition, U. S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command attended a management-level Town Hall Meeting on Kwajalein. At the Town Hall Meeting Schexnayder said of future RDA missions, “I want the majority of testing done here.” He said the path toward that end is to establish a synergy between testing and technical creation. “I want the range side to get to know the technology side.” USAKA/RTS provides a “quality product, the best in the world,” Schexnayder said, adding the downside for customers is that product is really expensive. “We have to improve. We have to draw more reimbursable work here. We have to make this place relevant and important to the Army, MDA, the Air Force and test customers,” he continued. According to Schexnayder, one option in reducing the cost to customers who want to use the USAKA/RTS facilities and expertise is distributed operations. “Approximately 35 people will be relocated,” he said. He added that any money saved, either through distribution of operations or through Lean Six Sigma innovations, will be reinvested in USAKA to make doing business more attractive to customers. • Entry/Exit changes: Changes to USAKA Regulation 19010, Entry and Exit Control, went into affect in February. The hours for entry and exit for RMI citizens on the Commute List were changed to 8 a.m.5:30 p.m., seven days a week with a limit of six hours per day access per person. Entry/Exit hours for domestic workers and child care providers were modi ed to begin at 5:30 a.m. and end at 5:30 p.m. • Fatal accident: Danny Lajouj, 33, an employee of Chugach Development Corp., a teaming-partner of Kwajalein Range Former Kwaj Kid and professional jazz musician Andrea Lindborg entertained residents in the multi-purpose room with a rendition of music from her album, Boro Song, with the help of some friends and local musicians.

More than 300 photographs were open for public viewing in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room at the event co-chaired by Dave Harris and Tina Bean. • Search called off: On March 15, the 4-day search for a missing Marshallese sherman was called off. Jack Jatois, 22, had been missing from Lib Island since 3 p.m. March 10. He’d been seen last shing along the island’s south reef in a small, 14-foot white, traditional canoe with outrigger. • SpaceX launches Falcon 1: SpaceX launched Falcon 1 on its maiden ight from Omelek on March 25, after two previously scrubbed launch dates. Given that Falcon 1 was an all new rocket and launched from an all new launch pad on a remote tropical island, countdown scrubs in the rst few attempts were very likely. One abort was due to a launch pad issue and one due to the rocket. On the third launch all vehicle systems, including the main engine, thrust vector control, structures, avionics, software, guidance algorithm, etc. were picture perfect. However, at T+25 a fuel leak, of currently unknown origin, caused a re around the top of the main engine that cut into the rst stage helium pneumatic system shutting it down. Services, died in an explosion at the Marine Department Dry Dock. Lajouj was working as a painter in the port ballast tank of the LCU Manassas when an explosion of unknown origin occurred. Lajouj was a Marshallese employee who began working as a laborer in the Marine Department almost 10 years ago. • CAC cards: The Army began implementing Common Access Card Cryptographic Logon which requires a common access card and personal identi cation number to • Teen trip: Teens • Brew-B-Q: For beer is a natural. The Brew-B-Q contest was the rst of its kind on Kwajalein, though home brewers also compete during the Spring Break Music Festival in April. Residents gathered at the American Legion Veterans’ Hall to try eight distinctive avors of home brew and 12 pulledpork barbecue samples ranging from mild to spicy. Five independent judges were chosen for each competition. The brewer who won the judges’ choice admitted he prefers wine over beer, but that didn’t keep him from entering and winning this competition. Rick Funk’s Honey Pale Ale took rst prize. Funk’s beer, a light golden color, is made with three pounds of honey for each ve gallons of beer.• Bouy placed: Divers placed a mooring bouy at the airplane graveyard at Roi-Namur, a large area where American military aircraft were dumped at the conclusion of World War II. The mooring buoy is located at the wreck of a C-46, a large cargo aircraft. A bright orange surface Rick Funk won the BrewB-Q with his Honey Ale. Local photographers displayed their photos during the Kwaj photo exhibit.

They were Steve Beuby, deputy program manager for Community Services, Walter Erb, information technology manager and Tony Veirup, deputy site manager/prime contract manager. • Turtle park dedicated: The small park surrounding the turtle pond was dedicated the Dr. Don Ott Turtle Pond Memorial Park in honor of Dr. Don Ott. The ceremony was attended by Ott’s widow Georgia and son Tom. During his 11 years on Kwajalein, Ott was tasked with the responsibility of cleaning up the waste that had amassed over the years. Ott’s philosophy followed the cultures of the Paci c Island nations and made sense, said John Bungitak from the RMI Environmental Protection Authority. • New police chief: Island newcomer, Joe Barnes named new chief of police of the Kwajalein Police Department, replacing Chief Dennis Johnson. Lieutenant Moses Moreno, a Kwajalein citizen for seven years, was promoted to captain and named the deputy chief of police. • Beach erosion: Shifting sand at Emon Beach called for a renovation of sorts before the July 4th celebration. Approximately 700 cubic yards of sand was moved from the north end of the beach, and the sand above the high tide line to the center of the beach to cover the exposed rocks and erosion. • PBQ demolition: explosive reduction of the Paci c Bachelor Quarters was a boom, collapse and cloud of dust. At a little past 4 p.m. on July 7, 168 sticks of dynamite exploded sequentially as planned, and the rst oor of the PBQ collapsed, crumpling oors two and three down as well. “The PBQ came down even better than planned, as not only did the rst story collapse completely, the second and third stories also collapsed in wave-like fashion, leaving only three two-story ridges where the reinforced stairwells were located,” Monte Craven, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Public Works said. Not only did the building collapse as scheduled, but according to Craven there was no collateral damage to adjacent buildings. • Beach blast: Nothing says Fourth of July more emphatically than a dazzling reworks show. The nighttime pyrotechnics capped off a fun lled Independence Day celebration.Leading the festivities was the not-to-be-missed bicycle parade. Pint-sized cyclists proudly rode their decked-out bikes dripping with red, white and blue patriotism past a cheering crowd of family and friends. Highlighting this year’s Beach Blast were two new features—the Water Slide and Baggo—designed to entertain the young and the young-at-heart. • Taxi bikes: During the rst week of July, Kwajalein became the home to a free taxi bicycle service, courtesy of the Island Memorial Chapel. “Sometimes people are in need of a bike, sometimes their bike breaks down and they need one,” said the Rev. Rick JULY Funk, protestant chaplain, “and wouldn’t it be nice if they had one to use.” for the borrowing. used it.” pairs faulty drains.

More than three quarters of the departments were 41 months accident free. • Flag football: KRS Child and Youth Services kicked off the 2006-2007 school year with two ag football games and a dance on Aug. 19. There were two games, one for females, one for males. The Bold and Beautiful, behind the power-house arm of quarterback Andee Criste, defeated Appetite For Destruction 6-0. Men’s teams KPD GUNS tied with K-Town Heat 6-6. The teams were combinations of youth and adult players. Catlin Layton, 17, Carrie West, 14, and Kaitilyn Phillips, 14, announced the play-by-play of the games. AUGUST The theme for the evening and this year’s program was making the right choices. Cardale Tademy, teen center director, said, “I believe the CYS department is trying very hard to provide avenues that are very positive for young people. I think the CYS staff is trying, truly trying hard to say, ‘Give us a chance to provide a place for your children to be, and you don’t have to worry about them.’” Youth Services held ag football games for island boys and girls as part of a program encouraging youth to make the right choices in their lives and providing good alternative activities.• Meal-card holder meeting: Unaccompanied Caf Paci c meal card holders voiced their dining frustrations at an impromptu public meeting with KRS food service managers on Sept. 2, and at a followup meeting on Sept. 16. Approximately 60 residential diners shared their dissatisfaction with unhealthy menu choices, sanitary conditions, inconsistencies in food preparation, lack of concern for dietary needs and inadequate food line supervision in a meeting organized by Steve Cummings, Dining Services manager, Caf Paci c manager Dave Nobis and Sunrise Bakery manager Jennifer Aakre, and attended by Steve Beuby, Community Services deputy program manager. The need for a public forum stemmed from an e-mail requesting the availability of whole wheat bread on a regular basis, but illuminated the bigger issues of quality of life and morale for unaccompanied status personnel. Meal card holders were adamant that their grievances were not a reaction to the Paci c SEPTEMBER Dining Room renovation, but longstanding concerns. “I really would like to get back together again and answer each and every one of these things,” said Cummings. “And I really would like to do some regular meetings so we can have free conversations back and forth. Our hope is that you see that we’re paying attention to your thoughts.” Working through the punch list of customer comments at the second meeting, 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. Following the initial meeting, Dining Services managers met See SEPTEMBER, Page 8

We could not determine the direction of the spilled material ow, so as a precaution, we closed the beaches until we could test and determine that we have no contamination,” explained Dick Nugent, KRS Environmental, Safety and Health manager. He determined the beaches needed to be closed. “The U.S. Coast Guard ship Sequoia was pumping sewage into the sewage lift station at Echo pier,” Nugent said. “During the evolution, it appears [has not been con rmed] that the pump was overloaded, and this resulted in a spill estimated at 100 gallons. We are attempting to con rm the amount.” The beaches remained closed until test results were negative for raw sewage. Nugent said when the test results achieved an acceptable level of contamination, reopening would occur. • Veterans honored: On Veterans Day Americans are called upon to commemorate the sacri ce and dedication of servicemembers, both dead and living, who have served in the military. The Hourglass paid tribute to three Kwajalein residents, Scott Philips, Mike Tracy and Darcy Mixon who served in Iraq in support of the Global War on Terror. • Japanese visit: Each year, since 1975, members of the Marshall Islands Bereaved Families Association come from Japanese cities and towns to Kwajalein and Roi-Namur to pay tribute to and pray for their loved ones who lost their lives in the bombardment of Kwajalein in 1944. • LDS Church In Febshipping container brimming with medical supplies for the Leiroij Kitlang Memorial Health Center on Ebeye.

The rst reported case of HIV in the Marshall Islands was in 1984. Since 1984, there have been 13 diagnosed cases of HIV and ve deaths in the Marshall Islands. Additionally, they received reports that HIV was detected in Marshallese living in the United States. HIV has no prejudice: Cases include men, women, youth and even new-born babies. In most cases, Marshallese learn of their HIV/AIDS status only when they are already very sick, consequently, failing to receive adequate diagnosis and early treatment and presenting a continuing health threat. Experience shows that the majority of HIV/AIDS cases remain undetected due to a lack of understanding. Due to the high levels of sexually transmitted infections and the fact that transmission methods are the same, there are HIV/AIDS cases in the Marshall Islands who are unaware of their status. For every one diagnosed HIV case, there are at least 10 cases that remain undiagnosed. Marshallese people are dying of HIV/AIDS. • Holiday season arrives: The 39th annual Kwajalein holiday The celebration continued • Endangered species Biologists from leased islands within the atoll. The team nished data collection on Dec. 8. “We’re looking at corals, reef sh, algae and macro vertebrates,” said Kevin Foster, USFWS marine ecologist, explaining the marine side of the inventory, “We are looking to evaluate the health of the coral reef, and also looking at a group of species of concern that are listed in the USAKA environmental standards that are actually protected by law in conjunction with United States and the RMI.” In general, marine communities appear to be healthy and intact, but the team did nd several small and natural anomalies, Foster said, when it inventoried the waters off Lagan, Illeginni, Roi-Namur, Omelek and Kwajalein. • New school calendar: The Student Advisory Council voted to accept one of two versions of the 2007-2008 school calendar submitted for review on Dec. 13. Traditionally, school calendar proposals are submitted in January, the decision to submit the calendar earlier was an attempt to give faculty and students more time to arrange summer travel plans. • The 25th Annual Paupers’ Marathon and Relay was held Dec. 11. Start times varied between 4 and 6:30 a.m., allowing DECEMBER the three full marathoners to start in the dark and “beat the heat” by nishing before the late morning sun became too intense. The three full marathoners were, in order of nish, John Jahnke (4:23:14), Virginia Mack (4:34:12) and Julianne Kirchner (5:20:07). It was the rst marathon for Jahnke and Kirchner and the sixth for Mack, but the rst Kwajalein island marathon for all three. Remarkably, Kirchner is a 14-year-old high school freshman. • Christmas drops: The Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club, through year-long fund raising, provided toys, treats and necessessities for residents of Carlos, Ebadon and Majetto during December. This year’s donation for Carlos was approximately $2,000. Young people and teachers from Kwajalein Junior and Senior High School helped distribute the gifts. “I just love how we work together,” said Chi-Chi Kemem, 17, “and the teamwork to make this all happen.” As the KHS band played carols, Santa arrived with his elves to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. The children lined up for pictures with Santa, while nearby, elves were busy arranging the care package each child walked away with – ip ops, toy, a goody bag and piece of fruit to munch on. “Look at that little one,” said senior Jose DeBrum, 18. “He can barely hold it all.” Two helicopters loaded with toys ew from Kwajalein to Ebadon and Majetto, the furthest and most remote of the islands in the Kwajalein Atoll, bringing Christmas goodies to these children. This journey of goodwill and Christmas cheer was a joint effort of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and the YYWC. As the helicopters landed, the people of the island gathered in a central area, the school grounds.

The Devil Wears Prada Lauren Weisberger’s best-selling novel about a young woman who stumbles into the hectic worlds of high fashion and publishing comes to the big screen in this comedy. Andrea “Andy” Sachs (Anne Hathaway) is a bright young woman from the Midwest who has just graduated from college and wants to work as a magazine writer. Andy has applied for a job at “Runway,” America’s most prestigious fashion journal; though Andy has little to no interest in the garment trade, they are one of the only magazines in New York with a job opening — second assistant to editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep). As Andy quickly learns, Miranda is a diva with plenty of power within the magazine business and she isn’t afraid to use it, and though Andy lands the job (primarily by being in the right place at the right time), she soon learns that working for Miranda could test the patience of a saint thanks to her endless demands and refusal to acknowledge the end of a work day. The Covenant An ancient secret threatens to unleash the powers of darkness on a group of modern prep school students when the sole survivor of a cursed bloodline returns to lay claim to the powers denied to him centuries ago in a supernatural teen thriller from director Renny Harlin and screenwriter J.S. Cardone. The story begins in 1692, when ve families from the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts formed a covenant of silence that would forever protect their remarkable powers. One family went too far, though, and as a result of their transgression they were forever banished from the land. Flash forward to the new millennium and the four Sons of Ipswich are now the student elite at the prestigious Spenser Academy. Bound by their sacred ancestry and sworn to silence, these four teens share a secret so remarkable that it has served to protect their families for hundreds of years. The past has a way of coming back when you least expect it though, and when the fth Son of Ipswich returns seeking to harness the powers denied him in the past, the battle is on to ensure the safety of The Covenant .

Sunrise/set Moonrise/set High tide Low tide 6-8 p.m., Jan. 17, Corlett Recreation Center gymThere is a saying: You are only as good as the people you work with. It was a pleasure and joy to have worked with the Child and Youth Services staff, and you all are fortunate to have such a talented group of young and intelligent people who love what they do. I want to thank all of the children who said hello each time they saw me and gave me a hug and all the teens who trusted me when they were seeking advice or just wanted to have a little chat. Thanks for the hugs, invitations to meals, homes to relax in, friendships and most of all, your love. I love you all with my heart and soul. There’s a wealth of talents and gifts among the youth. I pray that you all nd your path and take the journey that is designed for you. Be yourself and you can’t go wrong. You were born to be you. Like yourself and take of care of yourself because you are valuable and your life means more than you can ever imagine. There is a plan and purpose for your life. Seek out that plan and purpose and let nothing rob you of that gift. You all are role models to each other; take care of each other. You know right from wrong. Choose the right things in life and things will be ne. Some people are weak and some are strong. The strong help the weak and the weak show the strong that they are doing the right things. Friends will never force you to do anything that will hurt you or get you in trouble. I came to serve and gave of myself without wanting anything in return other than you being the very best that God wants you to be. That’s all your parents want, that you have a good life and make good choices. To the Marshallese families, thank you for your love and generosity of spirit. I am better because of watching you day-in-day-out taking care of the island, bussing my tray at the Caf Paci c, taking care of your families, traveling by LCM daily and not complaining, and doing what you have to do to survive. I say again, thank you. I encourage your young people to embrace the opportunity to become educated, and as long as you can breathe, get your education, get involved and reach out to the Kwajalein youth; you need each other in life’s challenging ways. You have something to offer each other. Don’t allow fear to keep you from getting to know your Kwajalein friends. Thank you to the Kwajalein community for allowing me to serve. 20
