An “El Nio Watch” from the NOAA Climate Prediction Center is now in effect. This means sea surface temperatures have become warmer than usual and an El Nio is likely to occur by September 2012. The last El Nio was from June 2009 to May 2010. This El Nio “modoki” had little effect on us. A previous El Nio from June 2004 to February 2005 spawned Tropical Storm Talas which tracked within radar range of Kwajalein. The strongest El Nio since 1944 was from April 1997 to May 1998. Typhoon Paka tracked within radar range of Kwajalein during it. Our last four tropical cyclones (Roy 1988, Zelda 1991, Paka 1997, and Talas 2004) occurred during El Nio conditions. Due to El Nio, at Kwajalein, expect higher than normal rain September through November, followed by a drier than normal dry season in 2013.Memorial Service for Oki Bennett10 a.m. Wednesday Small Chapel on Kwajalein The public is invited to attend.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012Guide to island athletics facilities, programsAttention TDY workers: read about how to stay involved, activeMandie Morris is the KRS recreation and programs manager. She is the person you should contact for information or questions about the athletics or wellness programs, Ivey Gym, CRC/CAC, bowling, pools and beaches or the gear locker.By Sheila Gideon Managing EditorWith budget cuts and staf ng changes, it can sometimes be dif cult to gure out who runs what department and more importantly, who to contact if you have questions. One department with recent changes is Community Activities. Most know Kim Yarnes as the Community Activities Manager. However, a large portion of CA programs are run by someone else – Mandie Morris. She is the recreation and programs manager and is in charge of the athletics program, wellness program, bowling, Corlett Recreation Center, Community Activities Center, Adult Recreation Center, Ivey Gym, gear locker and oversees pools and beaches. Morris rst worked at Kwajalein as the pools and beaches coordinator from 2005-08. She returned at the end of 2009 for her current role. She has a Bachelor of Science in health, physical education and recreation from Tennessee Wesleyan College. She played tennis and cheerleading during her undergrad and has been lifeguarding since she was 15. Morris went on to attain a master’s degree in recreation administration from Middle Tennessee State University. She did her master’s research on the economic impact of parks and recreation. AthleticsThere are ve adult recreation leagues offered throughout the year. Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School teams also play in these leagues. Outdoor soccer season begins Tuesday and will run through October. Indoor volleyball will start up in November and continue through the end of the year. Basketball, water polo and softball are also offered. Morris runs the athletics program, scheduling games and maintaining stats throughout the season. For each sport there is a night supervisor from Community Activities. This is often Morris, Labtak Langrus or Linber Anej.Wellness Program Morris recently took over the wellness program. She will rev the program back up with ongoing quarterly activities. “What we’re going to try to do is offer some kind of ongoing wellness activity every quarter, whether that is exercise classes or stretching classes, where people can try out something new and gure out which kind of group exercise they prefer,” Morris said. She will schedule another triathlon challenge and is looking at doing a wellness fair in the spring. “It’s hopefully something that will kick off every quarter and that isn’t necessarily a one-time event, but something that you can participate in through the entire quarter.” She wants to keep the program diverse and hopefully involve all island residents, not just those who already work out or eat healthy. “The idea is to try to reach people … and get them moving, excited or educate them about nutrition choices or healthy lifestyles.” She plans to involve the hospital staff to include information on nutrition and general health. Her hope is that residents can try something new every quarter and nd out what suits them best for a healthy lifestyle. Ivey Gym The gym installed new equipment earlier this year and is open 24/7. As part of the Wellness Program, Morris will have pamphlets available around the gym containing information on workouts and how to use the machines. To use the gym without supervision, you must be at least 15 years old. Ages 12-14 are only allowed in the gym with adult supervision. Anyone under age 12 is not allowed in the gym. E-mail Morris for the cipher lock code. Expect increased usage with TDY workers on-island over the next few months. Corlett Recreation Center/ Community Activities Center The CRC and CAC are open from 4-9 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday. The CRC is available for reservations; you are only allowed to reserve rooms during open business hours. It is free to reserve and great for birthday parties, meetings for clubs and exercise classes. Food and drinks are only allowed in Room 1. Call the CRC, not the CA of ce, for reservations. Bowling Hours for Kwaj Lanes changed on Sept. 1. You can now bowl from 4-9 p.m. on Saturdays. The center will open earlier so families can bring their kids after school, but will stay Photo by Sheila Gideon


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012 Jay Rowe, along with his wife Shelbi, and children Caleb,11, Sam, 8, and Molli,1, came to Kwajalein last month from Birmingham, Ala. Jay is the superintendant of marine repair. Jay heard about Kwajalein like so many do, from a good friend, Captain Paul Lapointe, that had lived here previously. “He told me about Kwaj close to 10 years ago. Moving to Kwaj is something that we, as a family, have been wanting to do for a long time,” Jay said. The Rowe’s are looking forward to a slower pace of life, as well as family unity. “For many years, we as a family have been living the life of a merchant seaman. Working a steady shipping rotation has its advantages and has been good to us, but it required the signi cant sacri ce of time away from family and home. Moving to Kwajalein and working in the marine department has provided me with a way to ‘come home’ while still continuing to enjoy a career in the maritime industry.”Photo by Kim Yarnesopen late enough for adults and regular bowlers in the evening. You can also hold private parties at the bowling center. Simply call the CA of ce to discuss the date and time at least two weeks in advance. A $45 non-refundable deposit is required; it will go toward your bowling fees on the day of your party. The bowling center recently underwent a major makeover. With Quality of Life Fund support, there is new seating, balls and shoes. Adult leagues are offered in the fall and spring. Thomspon Tarwoj is the man to see at the bowling center – he handles operations on Saturdays, during private events and the adult leagues. Adult Recreation Center The ARC houses pool tables, ping pong tables, shuf eboard, air hockey, foosball, darts and TVs. There is also a computer room and WiFi available. There is a soundproof band room and kitchen; you can check out a key for these rooms from the CA of ce during their open business hours. There is a Wednesday night movie every week at 7:30 p.m. Check the TV and Entertainment Guide or the Coconut Wire for movie listings. To use the ARC, you must be 19 years old, have a Kbadge or be a military ID holder. To gain access, e-mail Morris for the cipher lock code. The ARC is open for use from 9 a.m. to midnight. Expect increased usage with TDY workers on-island over the next few months. Pools and BeachesWhile Morris oversees pools and beaches, it is run by Mark Houseman. There is a new pavilion reservation hotline. Call 52945 to check if a beach pavilion has been reserved. Reservations will be listed throughout the week and weekend. To make a reservation, call the CA of ce. There are several programs offered throughout the year including Learn to Swim for kids, lifeguarding classes, water safety and the elementary swim program. The Kwajalein Swim Team also coordinates with pools and beaches for their fall and spring seasons. For the fall, the Family Pool is open every day after school, 11 a.m. Thompson Tarwoj oversees operations at the Kwaj Lanes bowling center. Photo by Catherine Laytonto 6 p.m. on Sundays and noon to 6 p.m. on Mondays. The pool is closed on Thursdays for cleaning. The Adult Pool is open 24/7, except Wednesdays when it is closed for cleaning. You must use the buddy system and be at least 18 years old. Emon Beach lifeguard hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends and holidays. All other beaches enforce the buddy system.Gear Locker Equipment for various sports is available for check-out through the CA of ce. There are no gear locker hours of operation. If you require equipment, contact Morris to set up a time for pick-up. The CA of ce is open 8 a.m. to noon, Tuesday through Saturday. Even though the of ce is closed in the afternoons, you can still reach Morris by e-mail during normal business hours. Staf ng shortages have many departments in a pinch when it comes to of ce coverage; the CA of ce is de nitely feeling it. Be courteous and come into the of ce during open hours of operation. Coming up to the of ce and knocking on the door after hours is not the best way to reach a CA manager. E-mail is the best solution for afterhours communication. Communication is important to the Community Activities department and to Morris. If you have ideas or comments for any of these facilities or programs, you will get the best results by calling the CA of ce at 53331 or e-mailing Morris directly about it for a solution.


6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 8, 2012 Emon Beach filled w i visiting Soldiers for L Caiden Scheivert cools off on the inflatable slide at Emon Beach Monday.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor Spurts of rain didn’t dampen anyone’s sprits this Labor Day holiday at Emon Beach. Kwajalein residents joined together to celebrate the end of the summer and enjoy some much-needed down time. Even visiting Soldiers from Meck joined in on the day’s festivities. The Monday holiday began early in the morning with the Swap Meet. Tables were set up under tents where residents could sell their wares and shop for needed items. Early birds showed up around 7:30 a.m. to get rst dibs on select items. Volleyball players took advantage of the early morning break from the usual Kwaj heat for the doubles tournament hosted by Community Activities. A total of seven teams in two divisions played the best of three games. Once all teams had played each other, the teams with the highest win/loss record from each division moved on to the championship game. Jeff Sudderth and Laura Callaway faced off against Ben Bartyzel and Dave Medora. They played three close games and after hours of erce competition, Sudderth and Callaway walked away tournament champs, winning a $30 Community Activities gift card each. Most people went home for lunch, some air conditioning and maybe a nap, but made their way back to the beach for the rest of the day’s activities. Volleyball continued throughout the day; whether it was doubles or team play, the court stayed active all afternoon. The water was lled with swimmers, snorkelers, Top, visiting Soldiers from Meck sing and dance to Michael Jackson’s “Billy Jean” during karaoke.

Tents and canopies lined the beach for coverage from the sun and the occasional rain storm.Community Activities had a craft tent going where kids could get creative. There was a station where you made your own silly putty. Volunteers helped explain how to mix colors and create the fun, sticky goo. Other volunteers helped with balloon lanterns. They wrapped colored yarn, soaked in a premade concoction, around a balloon. Once the balloon dried, it was popped and all that remained was the yarn in the shape of the balloon – very cool.The in atables were active all day. The water slide kept kids cool while the jousting pen let kids pretend to be gladiators. The Bounce House was full all day, beginning at the early morning Swap Meet. Retail Services kept everyone full and happy with burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, cheese fries and beverages. Crafts and beach games were not the only form of entertainment. Local musicians took turns on the main stage, providing cover and original tunes for beach-goers. Later that evening, karaoke was available. Kids and adults took turns showing off their musical skills. A major rain storm caused a mass evacuation to the nearest shelter, but didn’t clear everyone out. Once it stopped, a few brave souls continued the fun. If you stayed, you were lucky enough to witness the performance by the visiting “307 Brigade” from Meck. Almost 15 Soldiers got on stage, sang and danced to Michael Jackson’s “Billy Jean.” Now that was entertainment! Kristen Hosek dives in the sand for the ball during the volleyball tournament Monday.

Missile Defense Agency MDA Integrated Flight Tests at USAKA/RTS The Missile Defense Agency has completed the MDA Integrated Flight Tests at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site Environmental Assessment. The EA analyzes the potential environmental consequences that could result from performing integrated ight tests at USAKA/RTS, Wake Island and in the Paci c broad ocean area needed to demonstrate integrated Ballistic Missile Defense System effectiveness against short range ballistic missile targets, medium range ballistic missile targets and air-breathing targets in an operationally realistic ight test. Interceptor missiles proposed for use in the tests would be the Aegis Standard Missile, Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile and Patriot missile. Previously planned and on-going activities at the alternative sites would continue. Public comments on the EA and Draft Finding of No Signi cant Impact were accepted through Aug. 20. No comments were received that required revision to the EA. Based on the analysis, the MDA has determined that proposed activities are not expected to result in signi cant impacts to the environment and an Environmental Impact Statement is not required.
