To Fredly Mawilong and Lanny Kabua, we give them thanks for representing and supporting this event. To Jared Barrick, Rosita Sawej, Ric Fullerton and Stella Lorok for dedicating their time to our islandÂ’s youth. Thank you to Jon Olson for leading us in our event with an invocation.

Many thanks for all the other people not mentioned by name. Your efforts both great and small helped to make Manit Day at the Cultural center a great success! Kommol. Thank You Due to facility and pest control issues at AAFES warehouse 816, located next to the Sunrise Bakery, there will be various maintenance and renovation projects conducted in that area over the next few months. The initial phase of the projects has already begun, and all products are being removed from the warehouse. Each item will be inspected to comply with food quality and sanitation standards, and then moved to other facilities for safe and sanitary storage in other locations while the renovation to the warehouse is being completed. Contaminated items discovered in this process will be written off as a loss and disposed of and WILL NOT be offered for sale to the community. Taking care of this issue is a complete team effort involving USAKA, AAFES and KRS. All involved parties have a hand in implementing the comprehensive solutions to restore the ability to house and safeguard goods in the vacated AAFES warehouse transition update warehouse in a safe and sanitary manner. While the renovation work is being done to 816, as a safety precaution, residents should try to avoid this area. Community patience and understanding are appreciated while these necessary actions are taken to enhance the facility for the future storage of AAFES products. The health and safety of the members of this community is a top priority to the leadership team involved in this effort. We are doing everything as safely and quickly as possible to get all products transferred from this facility and checked to ensure that they still meet all health and safety standards. The quality of service expected from AAFES will continue during this evolution. Please feel free to contact AAFES general manager, Jeff Sweetenburg at 52436, or the USAKA food services technical representative, Chief Warrant Of cer William Duff, at 52139 with any questions or concerns.


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012 Natalie Bagley watches as each fence pole hole is dug on the fuel farm fencing project for San Juan Construction. Natalie is an archeologist for W. H. Pacific. Digging on certain parts of the fuel farm is culturally sensitive. An archeologist must be present during digging within these sensitive areas for identification and documentation of any archeological material that may be found. So far, some unexploded ordinance has been discovered during the drilling of the fence post holes.Story and photos by Lavinda Tyson CHST, STS San Juan Site Safety and Health OfficerSan Juan employees Simon Solomon and Chris Maika pull the light pole into place as it is lifted into the air by the forklift, operated by Mack Martin. Chris Maika watches as the auger drills a new hole for a fence post at the fuel farm project for San Juan Construction. A new fence is being installed around the perimeter of the fuel farm. Jackson John directs the mixing of the concrete for installation at the foundation of the new light poles being installed on the fuel farm.The light pole installation by San Juan Construction is well underway. The new poles are replacing the existing ones, and they will be out tted with new lights by the end of the year. Other projects include the replacement of the re suppression system in the xed-wing and rotor hangars, and the barge slip ramp repair began this week. San Juan Construction has completed quite a few projects this past year at USAKA, including the plumbing/carpenter shop and the water tank removal at Roi-Namur. Projects abound


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012Kwaj senior attends forensic conferenceStory and photo by Catherine Layton Associate editorNearly everyone has seen some version of the popular television shows centering on the career eld of forensics. Some watch for the mystery, others for the excitement, but Kwajalein High School senior Kori Dowell was inspired. When Dowell started researching careers, forensics caught her attention. She wants to specialize in forensic anthropology, saying, “I’ve always been interested in history, and the eld ties social and physical sciences together. I also love the study of bones, so it seems like a perfect career path for me.” Dowell was nominated then invited to attend the National Student Leadership Conference in Forensic Science at the University of Maryland, in College Park, Md., over the summer. The 10 day program hosted nearly 40 students in Dowell’s conference, from all over the U.S. During the conference, attendees learned about the different elds of forensics, including pathology, crime scene and computer forensics, as well as Dowell’s favorite, forensic anthropology. Her favorite part of the course, though, was the crime scene simulation. She commented that the realistic simulation “...was a lot of work, but it was a lot of fun as well.” Dowell has already been accepted to Northern Arizona University, located in Flagstaff, though the university doesn’t offer a degree program in forensics. Dowell’s plan is to study anthropology, then go on to study in her chosen eld. On Oct. 12, Dowell gave a presentation of her course in the Davye Davis Multipurpose room at the high school. Teachers, counselors, friends, family and members of the Quality of Life committee were in attendance to hear about Dowell’s participation in the impressive conference, and heard her passion for the eld. Now that she is an alumni of the conference, Dowell is able to recommend others for the different programs offered at the university.Kwajalein senior Kori Dowell hosted a presentation Oct. 12, detailing her experience at a forensic science conference at the University of Maryland. Community Activities hosted an art show Oct. 12, at the Religious Education Building. Featured was creative works in a wide range of mediums from local artisans. Exhibitions included stained glass, pottery, batiks, paintings and drawings. Wine, fruits and cheeses were served, and made for a welcome cultured event on island.

They are always professional and helpful when weÂ’re in need of computer help, even when they have answered the phone hundreds of times through the day.Thumbs Down to inconsiderate dog walkers who do not pick up after their animals. The person who left their dogÂ’s droppings in my yard at 414-B, attracting a barrage of ies, you are not complying with the USAKA animal control regulation.
