This is true. The Quality of Life committee voted to fund entertainment for this year’s celebration. The Ugli Stick has been writing and performing original music for 10 years and play a diverse collection of music. You may remember when they last played out here in July 2009. They are heading out here for a series of ve performances on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur for the 4th of July. More details about the events will be announced in the Hourglass and on the Roller. Clothing worn is based partly on traditional culture (the thigh was considered an erogenous zone and was always covered) and partly based on the conservative morals and values instilled by the missionaries who came here in the 1800s.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012 Aaron Seeyle, Joe Parrish and several other Webelos Boy Scouts offer crackers to RoiNamur’s feathered residents during a campout Feb. 18-20. Maj. Stephen Parrish, his sons, Joe, left, and Stephen, right, along with Aaron Seeyle prepare to raise the flag at their annual Roi campout.Webelos invade Roi-Namur at campoutBy Maj. Stephen Parrish Sr. Webelos Den LeaderOver President’s Day weekend, the Webelos den took a trip up to Roi-Namur to do a Scout campout, but it wasn’t a typical Scout campout. For this trip, moms and siblings were invited to attend with the intent of getting all the families together to share time, food and a few adventures. The Webelos den consists of Zack Jones, Aiden Mitchell, Joe and Gabe Parrish, and Aaron Seelye. With families, we had a total of 18 campers. The boys did a lot of events that will prepare them for transitioning from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts this coming spring. They fished, cooked meals, explored historic sites, swam, hunted and practiced first aid. The meals were the usual mix of nutritious foods, but also included the camping staple – s’mores. The boys and families enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of Roi as well as the scenic beaches that line the lagoon. The campout was fun for the boys and the families that attended. It was really good to get everyone together. The success of the campout is always dependent on participation and for this one in particular, the support we received from the members of the Roi and Kwaj communities was overwhelming. Special thanks to Col. Joseph Gaines, Robbie Amador, Oki Bennett, Roy Tomas, Laura Pasquarella-Swain, April Simon, Conrad Nakasone, Lt. Daniel Gooch, Patrick Kobeney, Chief Michael Phillip, Reece Fry, Jon Mitchell, LeAnn Parker, the Kwaj Lodge staff, and the many others that assisted in this campout. It was a success because of you! We look forward to camping there again. Photo courtesy of Sheila SchlieSheila Schlie recently moved to Kwajalein to ll the position of staff action specialist for USAKA. This position has been open for over a year now, so her work is greatly appreciated. “The entire USAKA team welcomes Sheila and her broad knowledge of human resources to the island,” said Joseph Moscone, deputy to the commander and her supervisor. She lived in White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico when she decided to move out here. Several things about Kwajalein appealed to her including the idea of life next to the ocean and Kwajalein’s small town community. Upon arrival on Kwajalein, Schlie was most impressed by the ocean. She says “I love the ocean. It is very calming.” She also is grateful to get out of the traf c in the states, but says that she misses high speed internet. This is Hank, Sheila’s dog, who she thinks is more photogenic than she is. Welcome to Kwajalein, Hank. By Jarem Erekson, USAKA/RTS intern Photos courtesy of Maj. Stephen Parrish Sr.

U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander Col. Joseph Gaines has emphasized safety during his tenure here on Kwajalein and this meeting was no exception. He began the meeting by praising efforts to keep workplace safety at the forefront but issued a cautionary message that recreational safety should always be a top concern for Kwajalein residents.Theresa “Tweety” Holbrook from the Small Boat Marina brought one of the new locator beacons to demonstrate. The small neon green device is designed to send a signal to the Coast Guard in Hawaii who then can track which boat is in distress and call the Small Boat Marina with an approximate location. The signaling devices were tested last month and a call from the Coast Guard was received within four minutes of the beacon being activated. The Small Boat Marina has started to integrate training on the use of these devices into its boat operator classes. A small number of locator beacons are also available for use by private boaters on a space available basis. The upcoming Rustman Triathlon in April brought up the topic of recent changes to the traf c code, speci cally the prohibition against wearing headphones while riding a bicycle. Gaines asked Kwajalein Police Department to step up enforcement efforts around the air eld and Kwajalein Running Club is asking all residents to be more aware of increased training traf c around the air eld loop during the next few months. Kwajalein Range Services, KPD, the Weather Station and other contractors operating on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur were at the meeting to brief the commander about work-related safety and to answer questions as needed. Other private organizations, including Kwajalein Scuba Club, Kwajalein Atoll International Sport shing Club and Surf Club, attended the meeting. Gaines concluded the meeting by asking private organizations to continue current safety efforts. He also invited all club leaders and concerned residents to attend future safety councils and to use the forum as a means to bring safety concerns to the attention of the command. Command Safety Council addresses community concernsContractors, private organizations and community members discussed safety at USAKA at the quarterly Command Safety Council Wednesday night.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 25, 2012 Thumbs Up! To the Kwajalein Golf Association members who helped with the Clean-up Day Monday morning. They scrubbed and painted the entire facility, power-washed all the coolers and the oor inside, and organized all the cabinets. A job well done! Pictured from left are Vernon Adcock, Kathryn Lauder, Sgt. Maj. Hohn Wolf, James Simek, Gloria Cassiday, Glenn Hibberts, Andy Estacion, Flynn Gideon, TC Cassiday and Pat Dowell. Not pictured are Nancy Grant and Jim Bishop.Photo by Kim ParkerUSAKA-leased islands at Kwajalein Atoll have several miles of shoreline that are both protected naturally with vegetation or with man-made barriers (rip-rap). The shoreline areas provide habitat for birds, crabs and turtle nesting. Threats to the shoreline areas include run-off from on-island activities, spills from aquatic releases and erosion from wave action or construction activities. Vegetation along the shoreline provides soil stability and it prevents erosion due to wind, rain, and wave activity. Plants also absorb water and nutrients that would otherwise run off into the ocean and lagoon. Before engaging in any activities (work-related or self-help projects) with the potential to effect areas within 50 feet of the shoreline, (such as facility demolition, construction, modi cation, vegetation removal or any other major undertaking) please contact KRS Environmental at 51134 for approval.Help keep our shorelines intactUSAKA no longer has a passport certifying agent on island.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this winter’s u season is the latest to begin since 1987-1988. Keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps we can take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to others. Many diseases and conditions are spread by not washing hands with soap and clean, running water. Hand sanitizers in the form of gels, lotions and foams have become widely available. While popular and convenient, the research remains unclear on the most effective way to clean your hands. If hands are visibly soiled, use soap and water. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol to clean hands. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers can quickly reduce the number of germs on hands in some situations, but sanitizers do not eliminate all types of germs. Remember, hand sanitizers are not effective when hands are visibly dirty.How do you use hand sanitizers? • Apply the product to the palm of one hand. • Rub your hands together. • Rub the product over all surfaces of your hands and ngers until completely dry. When should you wash your hands? • Before, during and after preparing food • Before eating food • Before and after caring for someone who is sick • Before and after treating a cut or wound • After using the toilet • After changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet • After blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing • After touching an animal or animal waste • After touching garbage What is the right way to wash your hands? • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold) and apply enough soap to coat your palm. Using hot water can injure your skin. • Rub your hands together to make a good lather and scrub them well; be sure to scrub the backs of your hands, between your ngers, inside your palms and under your nails. If you wear rings or bracelets, wash them as well. • Continue rubbing your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Hum the “Happy Birthday” song from beginning to end twice. • Rinse your hands well under running water. • Dry your hands completely using a clean towel or air dry them.
