2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 THE KWAJALEIN HOURGLASS The Kwajalein Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb. 4, 1944. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA.

Those of us working in that building have to move bikes in order to get ours out. Please use the appropriate parking spaces. Marshallese LanguageLocal legend tells that the expression “iakwe” meaning, “you are a rainbow” developed into the traditional Marshallese greeting, “Iokwe yuk,” which means “love to you.” The term “yokwe” is used for both hello and goodbye, while adding “yuk” will add “to you” to the phrase. … Information taken from rmiembassyus.org the website for the Embassy of Republic of the Marshall Islands in Washington, D.C. There’s a new dentist on island to keep residents’ smiles bright and healthy. Dr. Hillary Berry and her husband, Jason, arrived on Kwajalein this month, along with their chihuahua, Maddy. Originally from Oregon, the couple lived on Florida’s space coast before making the journey out to the Paci c. They were looking for a new adventure when Jason came across the KRS website and found the posting for the dentist position. The Berry’s are looking forward to what the island has to offer, particularly water sports, and are eager to learn how to scuba dive. “I love my job even though most people don’t want to come see me! It is my goal to make dental visits as pleasant as possible,” she said.Photo by Catherine Layton

Maj. Roderick Prioleau and USAKA/RTS Commander Col. Shannon Boehm talk with Japanese Major General Masashi Yamada of the Japan Air Self Defense Force Wednesday. Yamada and his crew, including his translator pictured far right, stopped at Kwajalein on their way to Honolulu for meetings at Hickam Air Force Base. The overall purpose of their stop was to receive gas and services at the airport; however, they enjoyed breakfast at Caf Paci c and joined the USAKA command on a visit to the Japanese Cemetery to pay respects to their ancestors who fell at Kwajalein during World War II. The group departed later that morning.Hourglass ReportsKwajalein Golf Association will host a Patriot Golf Day tournament at 9 a.m., Monday, at Holmberg Fairways. During this event, donations made will go to the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides post-secondary educational scholarships to children and spouses of military service men and women killed or disabled while serving our nation. In the last four years, the Professional Golfers Association has been instrumental in raising more than $8.6 million by hosting Patriot Golf Day events at their facilities, allowing the organization to distribute more than 2,000 scholarships internationally, in all 50 states and 41 PGA sections. The total number of post-secondary educational scholarship recipients surpassed the 2,400 mark in 2011. Patriot Golf Day is jointly supported by The PGA of America and the United States Golf Association. The KGA-sponsored four-person scramble golf tournament still has slots open for teams to sign up. Cost is $25 per person. Non-KGA member fees will be waived to encourage participation and donations. USAKA Community Activities has agreed to waive daily greens fees as well. Golfers are encouraged to donate those fees to the cause. Also for this tournament only, you will be able to purchase up to 10 mulligans at $10 each. Select beverages will be available on the course and lunch will be served after the round. Sign up as soon as possible for available tee times. For more information, contact Kim Parker.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 Telina Jacklick is the senior cashier, but also plays the unofficial role of assistant manager at Sunrise Bakery. She has worked at the bakery for 6.5 years. Bring the bakery home with special requests, to-go ordersArticle and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorSunrise Bakery offers more than meets the eye. Established in 1953, the bakery serves what you would normally expect: coffee drinks, pastries and breads. However, Darren Moore, bakery manager, has big dreams for our small island bakery. Some are in the works already, while some are still hopeful future ventures. So what can you get from the bakery right now? Sunrise Bakery is open from 6 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. They produce 3,100 pastries, 200 dozen bread products and 75 cakes and pies per week. While most of their business is here on Kwajalein, they also service Roi-Namur, Meck Island and the Island Voyager They even cater requests from Majuro. “It is my understanding that we are one of three bakeries within the Marshall Islands,” said Moore. The bakery not only satis es your hunger, but also your thirst. You can swing by in the morning and order coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, espressos and coffee coolers. Probably one of the little known facts about the bakery is your option to special order items. Having a dinner party? You can special order pretty much any kind of bread and pick it up during business hours. This includes Italian, whole wheat, seven grain, garlic French and Jewish rye. Throwing a birthday party or baby shower? You can special order a decorated cake. Catering a lunch for your coworkers? You can special order items not on the menu; talk to Moore or Telina Jacklick about your options, one of which is strombolis. Jacklick is the senior cashier, but Moore unof cially calls her the assistant manager because of all she does at the bakery. She is not only a cashier, but she cooks and works production lists. She has worked at the bakery for 6.5 years. Her favorite part of her job is experimenting with new recipes and making creations like strombolis. Besides Moore and Jacklick, there are only six other staff members at the bakery. They begin their work “day” at 9 p.m., nishing up around 4 a.m. All bakery products are handmade fresh by the bakery staff and contain no preservatives. Sunrise Bakery is small, but mighty. The fact that they have such a small staff and still are able to offer such an assortment of products is a testament to how hard each employee works. This small staff is part of the reason why the bakery is only open during the workweek. When Moore rst came on board three years ago, the bakery was open seven days a week. With budget cuts, trends had to be identi ed for when the bakery did most of its business. In the end, weekend hours were cut because they were the least busy days. But that doesn’t mean you have to do without on the weekends. You can special order to-go items and pick them up on Saturdays. If a small staff wasn’t challenging enough, they have another obstacle to tackle. Back in 2010, a renovation project began with the bakery as phase one. The new and improved bakery was reopened for business in July 2011. Since that time, phase two of the renovation has begun – Caf Paci c. The renovation at Caf Paci c means the bakery has to share their kitchen. Since Caf Paci c serves three hot meals a day to Kwajalein residents, the bakery does not have the opportunity to cook during the daytime. Moore hopes that once the renovation is complete and he has his kitchen back, he can start offering even more items to residents. Besides pastries, you can also special order breads, cakes and pies.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012 KHS students get a jump on college careers KHS junior Kaulu Kaluhiokalani interns with Hawaii Senator Brickwood Galuteria. He attanded bill signings and meetings about Galuteria’s reelection campaign.Kaluhiokalani interns for Hawaii Senator Galuteria Photo courtesy of Kaulu KaluhiokalaniBy Sheila Gideon Managing EditorSocial media doesn’t just keep you connected to friends; it can also land you a job. That’s how KHS junior Kaulu Kaluhiokalani scored a summer internship for the State of Hawaii Senate Majority Leader Senator Brickwood Galuteria at the State Capitol. Kaluhiokalani’s father, Noble, contacted the senator via Facebook and negotiated an internship for his son. He spent the month of July working a regular Monday through Friday, 8-hour work day with Galuteria. As an intern, he did typical duties one would think: led papers, made copies and ran errands. Since Galuteria is up for reelection this year, Kaluhiokalani attended several meetings for his campaign. He also helped send out mailers. Besides mundane of ce work, Kaluhiokalani was lucky enough to attend some bill signings and meet some bigwigs of Hawaii. On his very rst day, he met Governor Neil Abercrombie. He also got to meet several famous Hawaiian singers. Kaluhiokalani’s overall favorite part was when he sat in on a bill signing at Washington Place. One of the previous Hawaii governors asked Kaluhiokalani his opinion about some important topics affecting the state. He was honest. He told him while he has family in Hawaii, he’s grown up on Kwajalein, so he doesn’t know too much about the issues. Still, Kaluhiokalani said it was cool that they even asked his opinion on the topic.Going into the internship, Kaluhiokalani wasn’t convinced that politics would be his pursuit after high school. However, after working with Galuteria for one month, he said his interest was piqued. He discussed with the senator the potential for another internship next summer, if he’s reelected. “[I’d] probably get deeper into what he’s doing since it’ll be my second time,” he said.Since he is a junior this year, he still has some time to gure out his future. He said he’s deciding between school in Hawaii, where his family is, or Notre Dame, where his mother is an alumnus. Heidle chosen for prestigious seminar at West PointBy Sheila Gideon Managing EditorKwajalein Jr./Sr. High School senior Hayden Heidle got a taste of post high school life by applying for the Summer Leaders Seminar at the United States Military Academy at West Point. He submitted an application which outlined his grades, extracurricular activities and accomplishments. He was lucky enough to be able to interview face-to-face with Lt. Col. Kenneth McDonald, engineering management program director at West Point. Heidle met with McDonald at Emon Beach and had two comprehensive interviews. They went well and Heidle was selected among thousands of applicants. Heidle reported to the West Point campus in early June for a oneweek seminar; there were a total of 500 students accepted for the week. The students toured the campus, talked to cadets and attended classes. The purpose of the seminar was to give students a glimpse of what life would be like if they were accepted into the academy. They rose at a very early hour for physical training, lived in the barracks and learned basic military tactics. They even got to carry militarygrade guns. Heidle said he felt like he was truly in the Army. Heidle quickly became known as the “Kwaj Kid,” being one of few students attending from overseas. He heard this especially among his squad and from his sergeant. Meeting that group was the best part, said Heidle. “In less than a week … we became like a family,” he said. Heidle will continue to research colleges this year before he makes a decision about where he wants to attend. As of right now, while he highly recommends the SLS program and taking advantage of what West Point has to offer, he may be looking into a more artistic college as his choice.

Kibin applying a few coats on the outside of the tank. The work, being performed by contractor San Juan Construction, falls under the indefinite-delivery/indefinitequantity contract issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Work for the task order included the design, construction and installation of a new 500,000 gallon potable water storage tank with roof and structure to replace the existing 750,000 gallon water tank. Demolition of the existing water tank was completed in late May. The tank structure contract included a foundation for the new tank, roof and structure over the new tank and all accessories required of the new tank to function fully equal to the operation of the previous tank.

E-TALK: Coral reefs need clean waters to thrive. They provide habitat for numerous species and are valuable for shing, tourism and diving. Help protect coral reefs.The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command has completed an Environmental Assessment, prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the Council on Environmental Quality regulations implementing NEPA. The Roi-Namur Wastewater Treatment Plant Outfall Repair EA analyzes the potential environmental consequences that could result from the implementation of the sewer outfall repair activities. Given the current signi cant deterioration and/or lack of sewer outfall piping that is remaining, there is essentially no portion of the existing system beyond the point where it leaves the shoreline that can be reused. Consequently, an entirely new sewer outfall line, oriented essentially along the present alignment, will need to be designed and installed to adequately address the characteristics and demands along the terrain of the pipeline route. Based on the analysis the USASMDC/ARSTRAT has determined that proposed activities are not expected to result in signi cant impacts to the environment. A draft Finding of No Signi cant Impact and the EA are available at http://www. govsupport.us/roioutfallea and at the following locations: • RMI Environmental Protection Authority Of ce, Majuro, Marshall Islands • Grace Sherwood Library, P.O. Box 23, Kwajalein, Marshall Islands • Roi-Namur Library, Roi-Namur, Marshall Islands Public comments on the EA and Draft FONSI will be accepted through Sept. 24.
