Marshallese express themselves and their culture with the use of proverbs or “jabonkonnaan.” Like many cultures, Marshallese proverbs are used to instruct society, justify certain values and solidify customs that bind culture together. They are drawn from the interests and observations of daily life as well spiritual beliefs. A fishing proverb: “Fish speared by a first-born may not be eaten by a woman; otherwise, the first-born would lose his skill in spearing. Even one’s own mother is subject to this law.”... to Bob Sholar and support team for the successful, fun and record-breaking RustMan!

Cornett’s daughter Logan and son Gabe watch. New lieutenant colonel among our ranksBy Bob Sholar KRC Vice President There were a total of 13 teams and 21 individuals who completed the 33rd annual RustMan Swim-Bike-Run Triathlon Monday. The event was co-sponsored by Kwajalein Running Club and Kwajalein Range Services Community Activities department. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site Commander Col. Joseph Gaines addressed the swimmers with words of encouragement and sounded the start horn at the base of Echo Pier at 4 p.m. Winds were light-to-none and bike times were subsequently fast; however, the run course was warm and muggy. There were 13 repeat solo contestants and nine of those had personal best times, some by large margins. It was a speedy year indeed. Interestingly, four husband and wife pairs competed as individuals. Chad McGlinn was the overall winner in 2 hours, 8 minutes and 36 seconds – a new men’s masters record. The old record of 2:14:16 was set by Tom Cardillo in 2008. This was only the third breaking of the 2:10 barrier in 33 competitions and an almost 10-minute improvement by hard training McGlinn over his 2011 time. McGlinn also marked a new men’s individual fastest bike segment at 1:03:25; the old record belonged to Alan Calvert at 1:07:18, set in 2010. Nine-time RustMan veteran Cardillo nished second this year in a personal best of 2:11:42, the fastest non-winning time ever. Cardillo achieving a personal best at age 44, after so many participations and welcoming a new baby in the last year, is remarkable. Ladies winner Krystal Peterson broke the 2:20 barrier in 2:18:16 – a remarkable personal best over her last participation in 2006. That year, Peterson was rst in 2:24:09. She is the only the third female to join the ‘Sub-2:20 Club.’ Kendall Westhoff, an eighth grader, smashed the male junior high record with a 2:19:17 rst-time performance. The old record was 2:28:57 by Dan Hillman way back in 1992. Fellow eighth-grader Michael Sykes turned in a very respectable time for his rst participation. Island visitor Ray Smead became the ‘Most Mature’ RustMan nisher ever (born August 1938). Smead returned to Kwajalein as a visitor to participate and reunite with friends. Smead participated in RustMan 1 in 1980 as a resident. This was Smead’s 10th participation. Victor Langhans became the fourth Social Security Eligible solo nisher, born March 1944. The winning team of Shawn Brady, Calvert and Shawn Hebert pushed the team record under the 2-hour barrier at 1:59:21. Calvert rode his bike at an unprecedented, blazing 9-minutes per air eld loop, lowering that segment record from 1:03:27 way down to 1:00:21. All competitors nished and there were no reports of road rash. No IV uids were required. The race support staff included around 50 community members. Article and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor Maj. Travis Cornett was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel Tuesday during a ceremony held at the command conference room. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site Commander Col. Joseph Gaines conducted the promotion ceremony. Cornett’s wife Catherine and three children, Logan, Gabe and Josie attended, along with other USAKA personnel. This marks Cornett’s fourth promotion in a 17-year military career. “It tells you how rare promotions are in the of cer corps,” said Gaines. He recalled Cornett’s journey to becoming lieutenant colonel, highlighting accomplishments during his military career, including graduating from Eastern Washington University as a Distinguished Military Graduate, his training at Command General Staff College and his critical position as a Military Transition Team chief for the Iraqi Army in Diyalla province. Maj. Stephen Parrish published the orders, recognizing Cornett’s promotion to lieutenant colonel upon recommendation from the Secretary of the Army, who “has placed special trust and con dence in the patriotism, integrity and ability of Maj. Travis W. Cornett.” Gaines administered the oath of of ce. Cornett thanked Gaines for the opportunities given to him here at USAKA. He thanked the entire USAKA team for making this place such an enjoyable environment to live and work in. “This is a team sport,” said Cornett. “The Army is an environment where you succeed or you fail as a group. I have had a tremendous experience throughout my career with people who have just set me up to succeed. It’s no different here.” He concluded by thanking his family for their support during relocations and deployments throughout his career.


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 5, 2012 Ri’katak students and their parents sing at the PTO Talent Show April 28 in the MP Room. Kwajalein students display singing, dancing, acting talents at big showArticle and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor “America’s Got Talent?” Try George Seitz Elementary School has talent! GSES Parent Teacher Organization sponsored a dazzling talent show April 28 in the MP Room for family and friends. It was an eclectic group of singers, dancers and even some surprisingly unique acts. There were an abundance of singers. Some were brave enough to sing with just music playing in the background, others sang along to their favorite song and some even teamed up with friends. No matter how they chose to sing their song, they were all brave for even getting up on that stage in front of a roomful of people. A special singing treat was when the Ri’katak students and their parents took the stage to sing a song in Marshallese. Mistresses of Ceremony Kaya Sylvester and Kassandra Daily were encouraging and humorous throughout the performances. They told Shannon Robert, Tatina Samson and Verlene Lorok, who sang “Bless Myself” that they “feel blessed having heard you three sing.” With singing comes dancing and there was no shortage at this show. Branda Sawej, Dolly Heskaia, Chantelle Jirokle, Marina Lojkar, Rickiana Andrew, Janalynn Reimers and Lana Kabua were introduced as the best hula dancers on island. They accepted that challenge and performed a graceful and beautiful dance. Abigail Bishop and Mackenzie Gowans put on quite an acrobatic number to “Domino” by Jessi J. They did cartwheels, jumps, round-offs and splits. It was both impressive and entertaining. One of the favorite dance numbers of the evening, according to all the elementary girls that is, was performed by Sean Hepler and Jacob Long. The boys had the girls lined up at the stage to watch them bust out their best hip hop moves, including “The Worm.” Karen Brady’s “Tiny Dancers” gave an encore performance of their routine from the Spring Break Music Festival. Musical instrument talents were displayed by several kids. There were four exceptional piano players The second graders giggle and smile during their bouncy ball routine. Jacob Long, left, and Sean Hepler have girls lined up at the stage to watch them dance.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 5, 2012 who impressed. Kamy Legere even performed a saxophone solo.There were several unique acts throughout the show. The rst was a silly bounce demonstration by the second graders. They came out onto the stage on their bouncy balls and boinged around. It looked so fun I think more than a few audience members were jealous and wanted to have a turn. To continue the fun, comedians Brady Mathieson and Daniel Ranis took the stage several times to try to get a few chuckles from the audience. They started with one of my favorites: “What do you call cheese that’s not yours? Nacho cheese!” Everyone seemed to know the answer to one favorite: “Why was 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 ate (8) 9!” Gowans and Kayla Nustad showcased a new talent here on Kwaj – cup stacking. Each girl had a stack of cups they built different style pyramids out of and then – whoosh – they stacked them back in a row.One of the biggest acts of the evening was the reenactment of the TV show “The Voice” by the sixth grade students. Cameron Jones posed as Adam Levine, Auguston Lelet as Cee Lo Green, Lila Burnley as Christina Aguilera and Dawson Wiley as country boy Blake Shelton. Members of the sixth grade class, some dressed up in hilarious costumes, “tried out” for the show. If the judges liked what they heard, they turned their chair around and pleaded with the performer to pick their team. Some standout performances included Andrew Lundberg’s rendition of “Livin’ on a Prayer” and Ben Jahnke’s impersonation of a very popular female vocalist’s song. The evening ended with a “Teacher Spectacular!” The lights were turned off and mystery teachers dressed in all black appeared on stage wearing glow sticks. The glow sticks were arranged on them so they looked like stick gures and they danced a routine to “We Will Rock You.” The audience went wild during the performance. Pania Alfred sings “Teardrops On My Guitar” by Taylor Swift. Ben Jahnke delivers a hilarious performance during the reenactment of “The Voice.” Mackenzie Gowans gets “bendy” during her dance routine. Left to right, Joshua Sweetenberg, Somphrone Fraise and Allison Homuth dress up and audition for “The Voice” during the PTO-sponsored Talent Show April 28 in the MP Room.

7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 5, 2012Hourglass Reports The Unexploded Ordnance Disposal team would like the community to know there are now 24-hour amnesty collection points currently located at the passenger terminal of Building 901, the Kwajalein Small Boat Marina and at the end of the Roi-Namur passenger terminal. Amnesty boxes are available to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are currently two amnesty boxes located on Kwajalein and one located at the air terminal on Roi (Building 8035). The boxes are small because they are not intended for large UXO items. The boxes are primarily intended for expired ares, small arms ammunition or other prohibited items that may have been kept as a souvenir, found in a new house or brought accidently in household goods. EOD wants to remind everyone that UXO are never to be picked up, but we really want to emphasize that UXO should never be picked up for the purposes of being placed in the box. If UXO of any size is found, the area should be marked. Immediately notify Kwajalein Police Department, EOD or the Provost Marshal Of ce immediately. Amnesty boxes are just as the name implies. No one will get in trouble for placing contraband into an amnesty box. It is the U.S. Army and EODÂ’s intention to recover any potentially harmful materials so they can be disposed of properly with no questions asked. If you have any questions about the new amnesty boxes or feel that you have found a UXO, please call EOD/LO at 51433. Amnesty boxes now available

One-third of the crew will change out when they arrive at Hawaii. Photo from Hourglass archivesArticle and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Jarvis made a pit stop at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll to resupply, refuel, and to the pleasure of the 170 crew members aboard, get some much-needed liberty time on land. Jarvis arrived at Kwajalein Wednesday. The crew spent most of the day restocking the shipÂ’s supply, which included 5,000 pounds of food. Refueling is also essential.Jarvis Captain Webster Balding said Kwajalein is a critical location for resupply and refueling quickly. The large ship can refuel here in just a few hours compared to over 12 at some ports. What he appreciates more, however, is to be able to come to Kwajalein, kick back and relax for a few hours.The crew held a Hail and Farewell celebration at the VetÂ’s Hall Wednesday night. Over 50 crew members, one-third of their total ship staff, will be moving on to different assignments. Chief Of cer Brad Stevens is actually retiring after 24 years of sea time. Balding is also leaving for staff duty in Virginia.
