They also said it had a great script and so on and so forth. But then they said something that struck me as strange. They said it was a very good teen pregnancy ‘comedy.’ I suppose most everyone has heard of this movie and knows it’s about a high school girl who becomes pregnant by her boyfriend (who is more of a friend than boyfriend). Well, I’ll tell you — I’ve known two teen girls who got pregnant. They were daughters of friends and coworkers back in the states. Comedy wouldn’t be the rst word I would use to describe what those girls and their parents went through. I think tragedy might be a better word for what they endured at that time. Neither girl married the father of I would like to extend my thanks to the friends, families, and some I didn’t have a chance to talk to in the Kwajalein Community for generously helping us repair our boat Kejeban-Kij Our short time here was painless and enjoyable because of you stopping by and saying hello to the working crew or allowing them to borrow your bike My words cannot convey enough for your generosity. I’m pleased to say that all your support and cooperation has paid off. Kejeban-Kij is back in her prime and ready for service.

May God bless you all. —Rev. Hone Patrick, Ebeye Editorial In real life, it’s seldom all that funny Let me start off by wishing each of you a Happy New Year as the rst month of 2008 is halfway complete. My wish is that you are blessed with great health, happiness, and love during the year. This past week, I witnessed several aircraft landing on Kwajalein as families returned after their holiday break. Parents returned to start work again, children returned to start their second semester of the school year, and both sought friends as they retrieved their luggage from baggage claim. In this editorial, I continue my efforts to keep you informed on transformation. I believe the interview on the radio in October, the television interview in November with Window on the Atoll, the Town Hall in December and the Hourglass articles, have all served to provide you the most current information. Today, I will address three speci c transformation topics and will follow up with additional details next month. The topics for to-Commander updates transition planSee UPDATE, Page 4

The Kwajalein Hourglass Friday, Jan. 18, 2008 Hourglass reportsPrivate clubs and boat house owners will receive electric bills in a couple of months. Kwajalein Range Services was tasked by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll to develop processes to recoup cost of electricity used by private boat lots and clubs. The fees for electricity at private boat lots have been established and the fees for private clubs are under development. Both fee structures are set by USAKA according to the rates established in the Financial Policy and Rate Manual. Boat house owners will be required to sign a Power Use Agreement certifying the number and type of appliances in their boat house. The Power Use Agreements will be sent to boat house owners in February. All boat houses on Kwajalein were inspected by KRS personnel in September. Boathouse billing will be done bi-annually through KRS Finance, 3Electricity costs will be billed to clubs, boathouse owners with monthly fees for basic service, $3; small refrigerators, $5; refrigerator/freezers, $8; freezers, $10.50; and window air conditioning units, $32.50. Fees are the same for Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. Appliance energy usage is based on the energy estimated to be used by a new appliance per Department of Energy. The cost of the electricity is based on the electrical rate contained in the Financial Policy and Rate Manual which is updated annually, based on actual operating costs. There 112 lots on Kwajalein and 13 on Roi-Namur. All lots on Kwajalein have been surveyed and 82 have electrical service. The lots on RoiNamur have not been surveyed yet. Billing will be done through the KRS Finance Of ce. Rates for private clubs have yet to be determined. The clubs are being metered now with an estimated completion date of Feb. 9. For more information on this program, call Jim Landgraff at 53360.New Year’s receptionPolish missile defensive site would bene t all EuropeansBy Gerry GilmoreAmerican Forces Press ServiceA proposed anti-ballistic missile defense site in Poland would bene t all of Europe, a senior Pentagon spokesman said Tuesday. Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates and Polish Defense Minister Bogdan Klich discussed Iraq, missile defense and other issues today during meetings held at the Defense Department’s headquarters, Pentagon Press Secretary Geoff Morrell told reporters. Gates and Klich “had a discussion about a range of issues,” Morrell reported, including Polish plans to reduce their forces in Iraq while increasing their troop contribution in Afghanistan. There are now approximately 900 Polish troops in Iraq and around 1,200 in Afghanistan. News reports say Poland is considering withdrawing its forces from Iraq sometime this year, while sending 400 more troops to Afghanistan. But Gates and Klich spent most of their time together discussing missile-defense issues, Morrell said. American security experts believe that a missile-defense system should be installed in Eastern Europe, speci cally placing an interceptor site in Poland and a related facility in the Czech Republic to counter the threat of a potential ballistic-missile strike from Iran. The proposed missile-defense program is “of vital importance, not just for us, but really for Europe, and that’s the key here,” Morrell emphasized. “Putting these interceptors in Poland does far more to bene t Europe and our allies there than it does for us.” The United States and Poland are members of NATO.Chelsey Bean, left, Rachael Blacketer and Jennifer Bean examine a photo collage representing U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll’s year in review at the USAKA Commander Col.

Friday, Jan. 18, 2008 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4REAL LIFE from Page 2 their child. That’s in line with statistics that say a teen mother is hardly ever involved in a long-term relationship with the father — after she becomes pregnant — go gure. I’m sure Juno is a very good movie in that it’s well-written and well-acted. The title character is supposed to be an intelligent, wise-cracking young lady. I’m sure it has parts that are humorous and make an audience laugh. It no doubt has parts that are heartwarming. I might see it sometime. I like a good movie as much as anyone else. But I can’t help being concerned with something as serious as teen pregnancy being treated as a ‘heartwarming comedy’. As I said, the experience I’ve had with the subject was anything but funny. I saw those parents cry their hearts out and two young girls at the edge of emotional destruction. And then, there were the those amusing questions the girls had to ask themselves — do I keep the baby— do I give it up for adoption — or do I do that other thing? Yeah, a lot of chuckles. I didn’t see many heartwarming or humorous moments while the girls and their parents were trying to decide what to do.The problem with movies — even if they’re very good — is that they aren’t real life. I mean, in the movies, cops solve all sorts of crimes in 90 minutes. Heck, entire wars are won in 90 minutes or less. Of course, anything is possible on the silver screen I guess — even a teen pregnancy story with a happy ending. I hope this movie doesn’t send some kind of ‘wrong’ message to teenagers. Lord knows they get enough of those every day. I’ve seen the news that Jamie Lynn Spears, sister to Britney, is only 16 and pregnant. I’ve heard she has a hit TV show that’s very popular with teen and pre-teen girls. It’s been said that before getting pregnant, she was a good role model for young girls. Ha, ha, ha — very funny, isn’t it? No, it’s sorta really not. One would think young Jamie Lynn would have learned a hard life lesson by watching the trainwreck her sister has become. I hope she doesn’t follow the same downward path. And by the way, there might be something wrong with a society that seems to take some kind of peverse pleasure in watching two young women, Lindsay Lohan and Britney, self destruct in terribly sad and troubling meltdowns. I guess compared to that, teenagers getting pregnant isn’t a big deal. At any rate, I’m pretty sure I’ll watch Juno when I get the chance. Like I said, I like a good movie. But if I laugh at certain spots or feel ‘heartwarmed’ while watching it, I think I’ll remember two young girls — and that in real life, teen pregnancy is very rarely funny. day are the status of transformation, remote distributed operations, and the ber optic cable system. Status of transformation: This month I will brief several groups on the status of transformation. My rst stop will be the leadership of the U.S. Paci c Command in Honolulu. I will then travel to brief staff members of the Department of Interior, State Department, and Congress. The information I will share is simply the information I provided to you in November/December. Since then, our commanding general, Lt. Gen. Kevin Campbell, has approved the concept and timeframe of the transformation, and I will generally provide the groups with background and information, and give them an opportunity to ask questions. Our next major event will be a synchronization drill in Huntsville, Ala., in April, that will involve all government agencies, Department of the Army civilians, and contractors associated with major activities of transformation. I will then provide the residents of Kwajalein and Roi with the status in a May town hall. Remote distributed operations: Our initial RDO focus is up and running as we’ve begun a space operation prototype in Huntsville. Individuals continue to look for an interim facility for the personnel who will work and transition to Huntsville starting next summer. The facility will either be located on Redstone Arsenal, a General Services Administrationleased facility in Huntsville, or there will be a Missile Defense Agency Advanced Research Center contract modi cation to accommodate RDO. Personnel from RTS will start to demonstrate the proof of concept in scal year ‘08 as we continue to show limited Space Operations/ Shadow Operations using our sensors from Huntsville. The nal facility will be a military construction project, which is projected to be complete in 2013. Logistics are also a major consideration for RDO, and USAKA will begin to reduce the Marine assets and con rm current plans to transport goods and services out to Kwajalein. We will continue consolidating similar facilities on Kwajalein. I expect to implement a monthly budget variance meeting to track funding and ensure we have the most ef cient business practices possible. Kwajalein cable system: The contract date for the ber optic cable system is set for May and is on track to be signed. Fiber is the key and will enable RDO to become a reality in scal year ‘10. This will allow our customers to see their tests, real time in Huntsville while sending minimum personnel on temporary duty to Kwajalein. In other words, we will take the Range to the customer and that will increase our direct customer reimbursables. Our initial focus will be to stand up a space operations prototype in Huntsville to shadow the space operations conducted here on Kwajalein. As the capability matures over the next two to three years, mission responsibility will shift to our Huntsville facilities.This is an update of the latest information I have. I thank all members of my staff for their hard work and members of Kwajalein Range Services and Massachusetts Institute of Technology/ Lincoln Laboratory for their assistance and efforts in the areas of transformation, RDO, and the Kwajalein cable system. Again, expect additional information on these areas to be provided in February. UPDATE from Page 2

Kenneth Mackey, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Jan. 10. The Quarters of the Quarter recognition program is an USAKA initiative. Lindborg’s quarters were the rst recognized since the program was rejuvenated in 2007. The judging took place the last Saturday in December for the rst scal year quarter of 2008. Five yards were selected as nalists. The judges were the rst sergeant, the public affairs representative and an installation management representative. They used ‘Christmas Spirit’ as the criteria for choosing the nalists. The standard operating procedure that de nes the criteria puts emphasis on general appear-Home beautiful Lindborgs win Quarters of Quarterance, building, lawn policed area, owers, shrubs, initiative and originality. The rst sergeant said that he relinquished the winning Quarters of the Quarter sign from the contest between him and Col. Stevenson Reed, USAKA commander, which was the kick-off to the program, to the Lindborg’s. The Quarters of the Quarter sign will be passed to the next Quarters of the Quarter winner sometime in early April for the 2nd quarter of 2008. 1st Sgt.

Above: Swimmers listen to tips from coach Keogh. (Photos by Nell Drumheller)Local swimmers, coaches soak up visiting Aussie’s swim techniques By Nell DrumhellerEditorBrendan Keogh, Australia’s Paralympics National coach, is visiting Kwajalein to instruct local swimmers and coaches. His visit is a part of Fdration Internationale de Natation, or FINA an international association that supports swimmers. His trip to Kwajalein was paid for by a grant through the Marshall Islands Swim Federation. “Swimming Australia has an obligation to develop or to assist in the development of swimmers and coaches within the Paci c, Asian and African regions,” Keogh said. “So this particular one I was available and I saw it as personal development for me.” Keogh’s clinics on Kwajalein include sessions for young people and adults as well as sessions for the rescue swimmers with the Kwajalein Fire Department. He’s been coaching for 20 years; his coaching career began when he was a competitive swimmer. “I competed and made it to my age-group national nals in the 400-freestyle.” He was at the pool one day when the manager of the pool asked him to assist with a group because the coach for the group had not shown up. “So I took the group, and the next day he asked me again because he’d sacked that particular coach and from there on everyday when I showed up he’d ask me to take that group again. A month down the track it was my group, it all started from there.” A girl on Keogh’s swimming team made the 1996 Paralympics squad and again in 2000, and Keogh applied for the team as an assistant coach. “I do my job because it’s swimming, not because I’m working with disabled people most of the time. If I changed my job tomorrow I’d be working within swimming.” He added that if he couldn’t work with swimming that he’d probably be unemployed. At the rst clinic on Wednesday Keogh watched seven swimmers move up and down the pool. The swimmers represented local athletes from high school through masters. Keogh critiqued each swimmer and explained what they were doing correctly and identi ed their bad habits. He pointed to one swimmer and said, “She’s a natural in the water. If I had to use one of the swimmers to show an example of how to do things I’d use her.” He pointed out another, noting how hard this swimmer worked in the water, that she was using almost twice as many strokes as the rst swimmer to get down the pool, he explained that the second swimmer was working too hard and would be exhausted before long. Keogh said he learns as much from the clinics as the participants do. “There are so many challenges with coaching,” Keogh said. “You want to keep up to date with modern coaching philosophies, there’s the keeping up to date with modern techniques, and I haven’t even gotten to communicating with the athletes. Sometimes I think the hardest challenge is making the athlete aware that the coach shouldn’t have to always be the motivator, sometimes they have to motivate themselves.” Keogh worked with the group of swimmers for a couple of hours. In that time he learned quite a bit about them, all revealed by how they approached swimming. “You have to work to get to know each individual athlete, and nd out which way they like to be pushed. I think also you take into account there’s difference in the genders as well, you often nd that younger kids the girls might like a more disciplined, hard-working type program where as the boys at that age might like to run a muck a bit and race. You also nd different training values among sprinters and distance swimmers.” He encouraged the group to use the pace clock at the Adult Pool. He said that without accurate pacing they weren’t training, but were swimming for stress relief. Swimming has been one of the main sports of the Paralympics since the rst games in Rome in 1960. FINA rules are followed with a few modi cations, such as optional platform or in-water starts for some races and the use of signals or ‘tappers’ for swimmers with blindness or visual impairments. No prostheses or assistive devices are permitted. Paralympics swimmers compete in the freestyle, backstroke, butter y, breaststroke and medley events. Swimming is open to both male and female athletes having either a physical disability or blindness or visual impairment. Athletes with a visual impairment are classi ed into three classes, according to the degree of vision loss: S11 for athletes with no sight to class S13 for legally blind. In the case of swimmers with a physical disability, classi cation is based on several factors i.e., muscle strength, movement co-ordination, joint range of movement and/or limb length. The swimmers are also required to perform a practical water session, performing all strokes and accordingly assessed on their ability. Keogh will be on Kwajalein through Thursday. He is staying at the Kwaj Lodge and is available for one-onone clinics. For more information, contact Cris Lindborg at 52935, or Keogh directly through the Kwaj Lodge.

This will help eliminate breeding areas and reduce the mosquito population. RODENTS: The resident rat on Kwajalein is the roof rat. They live and nest in coconut trees and feed on coconut or anything else that is readily available. Roof rats are very inquisitive, opportunistic and agile. They will nd any opening into a structure.Residents can make it harder for rats to gain entry by doing a few simple things. Check for holes around pipes and air-conditioners (if you can stick your gure in the hole, a rat can get through). Keep dryer vents clean — not only are they re hazards, they are the main way rodents nd their way into quarters. If the trap door is full of lint, it will not shut properly and rats will will be able to get through. Trim any tree limbs or palm branches that are touching or within two feet of your quarters. These are rodent highways. Clean up clutter inside and outside. Stacked wood, boxes, unused toys and scuba gear make great nesting places. At work, don’t leave any food where rats can get to it. Desk drawers are not rodent proof. Doing these simple things will make quarters and work places less attractive to the roof rats.
