2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 3, 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. It is published Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff.

The white and orange bands represent the Ratak (Sunrise) and Ralik (sunset) chains, respectively. The customary symbolism of orange as the color of bravery and white as the color of peace are also recognized. The star represents the cross of Christianity, with each of the 24 points signifying a municipal district of the Marshall Islands. The four main points represent the major centers of Majuro, Ebeye, Jaluit and Wotje.– Information taken from “The Marshallese Primer,” published June, 2005. Retirements Huston Sorimle retired from the Kwajalein hospital Saturday, after a 32-year tenure. Sorimle worked as a nursing assistant since 1981. Coworkers surprised Sorimle, gathering under the guise of a staff meeting. They presented a slideshow of more than three decades of photos to reminisce. Sorimle was serenaded by the infamous Kwajalein Hospital Kazoo band, who played “Auld Lang Syne” and “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.” Sorimle is planning on opening a store at Ebeye, and invited everyone for a cup of coffee when he opens. The staff all chipped in for a gazebo for his store. Alan Mohang started working on Kwajalein in 1965, and decided it was nally time to hang up his hat at the fuel farm and spend time with his family on Tuesday. Mohang’s coworkers gathered to wish him a fond farewell, along with some members of the KRS management team, including Harden Lelet, KRS special assistant for RMI affairs. KRS president Cynthia Rivera presented Mohang with a certi cate of appreciation, and everyone was treated to Subway sandwich platters and cold drinks. Mohang departed after a photograph of all of his coworkers, leaving Kwajalein for the last time as a KRS employee.


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012Teen town hall points to concerns of Kwajalein youthBy Catherine Layton Associate editor U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander Col. Shannon Boehm hosted a teen town hall at the Davye Davis Multipurpose Room Tuesday. Island youth were encouraged to voice their concerns. “...You can offer me an interesting perspective. I want to take some time to gure out what’s on your mind, what’s important to you and what concerns you have,” said Col. Boehm during his opening remarks. Many of the next generation’s questions mirrored those brought up at the town halls in September. One youth inquired about the rumored residential internet, and Boehm offered an encouraging timeline, saying that previous roadblocks have been overcome. Another student tied into the inquiry, wondering if wireless delity, or Wi-Fi, availability was going to be an option. The colonel mentioned that Wi-Fi is being considered, but the debate has yet to be resolved. A question posed from a Marshallese resident echoed that of a topic from the Kwajalein town hall in September. With the post of ce regulations, the Marshallese who live on Kwajalein used to have P.O. boxes to get their mail, but not anymore. The student wondered if they could get their P.O. boxes, because when Marshallese students that live here ll out papers, they have to leave their addresses blank. Boehm assured her that USAKA has made some resolutions to this problem, including working on establishing a post of ce extension of the Ebeye post of ce here on Kwaj. There are other issues that are still being looked into, including Marshallese pilots who are required by the Federal Aviation Administration to have a U.S. address. Another student asked if there was any way mail could get here faster, and Boehm commented he thinks the post of ce does as good of a job as they can. With the recent mission, the priority was placed on cargo that was mission related, and last week USAKA was informed there was 19 pallets of mail and cargo that were stuck at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii. Now that the mission is complete, shipments should be getting back to normal. Two students inquired about resuming a couple of school traditions, both which would require the utilization of marine assets. The rst student asked about the trip up to Bigej aboard the Great Bridge that was a reward for student volunteers, while another asked if a boat could be provided so students could continue the “Christmas on Carlos” tradition, where students bring school supplies and food and hang out with students and families on Carlos. The proponent for the Bigej trip said a few seniors have prepared a presentation about the trip, and the colonel encouraged those interested in the Carlos event to arrange one as well. He told them he will discuss both trips with his staff after he sees the presentations and better understands both of the scopes of the trips. Another topic of discussion for the teens was privileges like renting a golf cart or a “B” boat. Currently, you have to have a valid driver’s license to rent a golf cart, and most teens on Kwajalein aren’t able to get their licenses until they move off-island. Also, a boat operator must be at least 18 years old, and one long-time student expressed how many limitations there are on teenagers on Kwajalein, remarking she understood the safety concern but asked if USAKA would revisit the policy and maybe do something because the teens on Kwaj love the boats. The colonel told the audience that he remembers being 15 and 16 years old, and will look into those lost privileges. A teen questioned the confusing curfew, and Col. Boehm agreed that it was vague. Boehm did note, though, that part of his pledge to the community was to take care of the residents. Night diving was addressed by an avid diver and student. She asked why there is a $74 fee to dive after sundown. Col. Boehm told the assembly that the decision came down from the Space and Missile Defense Command surgeon, who reviewed the club’s safety policies and discovered people were diving during periods when the decompression chamber wasn’t available. Government funding cannot be committed to run the chamber for recreation, so the divers have to pay for the person manning the chamber. About a month and a half ago, the scuba club president asked if USAKA could extend the daytime diving hours to 6:30 p.m., so people could take advantage of time after school and after work to get in a quick dive. Col. Boehm said he liked the idea, and it’s under consideration. The teen town hall concluded with some remarks from USAKA senior enlisted advisor Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau. He talked to the students about how the residents can be assured the colonel has the best interest in everyone here. He encouraged the students to ask themselves what they can do to improve the quality of life in this tight-knit community. USAKA commander Col.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012 Story and photos by Catherine Layton Associate editor The Small Boat Marina is the place to go get out and have some great adventures around the islands. Though the primary business occurring at the SBM involves the rental of dual-motor boats, referred to as “B” boats, to local mariners, so much more is going on to keep the marina running smoothly. Back in the early days of the SBM, there were different classes of rental boats. The “A” boats were the same size as the “B” boats, but had enclosed cabins. “C” boats had only one engine. Though there is only one class of boat available nowadays, the name “B” boat stuck. Originally called the Kwajalein Small Boat Marina, the facility was renamed the Col. Gary K. McMillen Small Boat Marina on Nov. 6, 2002, following the death of the former USAKA/KMR Commander. According to his wife of 28 years, Pamela, Col. McMillen wanted to return to Kwajalein after he retired to run the SBM. She stated it was his favorite place on island. In order to rent a boat from the SBM, you have to get quali ed. With class fees, the orientation cruise, the practical test, the deposit and fuel involved, this will set you back about $140; but it is a one-time necessity. Initially, you attend a two night class. Classes are offered every other month, with the next one scheduled for 6-9 p.m., Dec. 5 and 6. During the class, all of the rules and regulations are taught, including details relevant to Kwajalein. You will get instruction about operations, maintenance, and speci c knowledge of local regulations and area requirements. In addition to learning about the “B” boats, extra classroom time is given to those wanting a sailboat license. Currently, the marina has three sailboats. “We will work with anyone wanting to learn to sail, or we will get them set up with instructors,” said Tweety Holbrook, SBM manager. Holbrook recommends 15 to 20 hours of practical sailboat training prior to getting a sailing license. The SBM also rents other watercraft, including a ski boat. A special endorsement is required, ensuring you have knowledge of ski boating techniques and hand signals. Also available are the very small but quick Laser sailboats, and you must get checked out on one of these prior to rental. There are single and double kayaks for rent by the hour as well. Winter hours at the marina have started, and are Saturdays from 1-6 p.m., and Sunday and Mondays from 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. To rent a boat, the fee for the rental is $75 for a half day rental, plus any fuel used during your adventure. In order to stay out the whole day, there must be two captains on board the boat, otherwise, the boats can only be out for a half-day rental.Besides boat and related rentals, the marina handles some boat owners’ requirements as well. With Installation Management Command becoming a deciding factor in the island’s infrastructure, the previous customized boat shacks are going away. Future plans are being discussed for individual boat lots, with a likely scenario being a central hub and common area for storage. A letter was issued to boat lot custodians Oct. 25, outlining some changes to the con gurations of the boat lots. There is a longterm solution for the storage and maintenance of personally owned watercraft, but as of now it is an unfunded solution. Eventually, all lot custodians will transfer over to a new storage area. There will be no selfbuilt structures, or shacks, allowed.In the interim, boat owners selling or disposing of their watercraft or departing island will be responsible for removing everything from the assigned space. Any new watercraft owners will be issued an empty lot through the SBM, large enough to store the craft. Willy Bolkeim puts a “B” boat back in service, while Paul Solomon drives it back to the marina. In the distance, another boat approaches, carrying divers back from an adventure. The Small Boat Marina office.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012Story by Catherine Layton Associate editor The 4-H Cooking and Technology Club introduced a touch of Halloween for this month’s food event. The club prepared Romanian meatballs with sauce and Romanian braised cabbage, all while talking a bit about the spookier aspects of the country, including the associations with its most infamous former resident, Count Dracula. The purpose of the club, according to Shannon Paulsen, 4-H volunteer, is to introduce third through sixth grade students to basic cooking skills and show them how to read recipes, along with focusing on communicating through social media like email and Facebook. Paulsen, along with her trusty helper Avonlea Westoff, promotes healthy foods from various countries and cultures from around the world, while developing positive self-concept and social skills. Members of the club will compile a cookbook at the end of the year, incorporating the recipes they will cook throughout the year. On the technology side, Paulsen encourages family participation with the club by Facebook interaction by reviewing pictures and leaving comments. Club member Alysha Church likes the cooking classes, “I enjoy cooking class because I get to make stuff by hand. I love making different foods from different countries,” she said. Her sister, Kalynn, agreed, saying, “We get to make good food!” Head, Heart, Hands, and Health are the four Hs in 4-H, and they are the four values members work on through the fun and engaging programs. There is also a short pledge: I pledge my head to clearer thinking, My heart to greater loyalty, My hands to larger service, and my health to better living, For my club, my community, my country and my world.Local 4-H Club cooks Romanian ad e Julia Sholar mixes the sauce for the Romanian meatballs.

Congratulations to Crush and Spartans I Women, who were this year’s Champions. Mandie Morris Recreation and Programs ManagerInternationally acclaimed swim coach holds clinics at Kwajalein Story and photo by Catherine Layton Associate editor Rick Powers, the self-proclaimed ‘most traveled American swimming coach in history,’ came to Kwajalein to impart his knowledge of the aquatic to local coaches and swimmers. Recruited by the Federation Internationale de Natation, or FINA, Powers has lived and coached in 10 countries, and traveled to 42 different countries to host clinics. He has coached the national teams of six countries, including Venezuela and Israel. He was one of the rst to hold clinics for the FINA Swimming Coaches Certi cate Program, the goal of which was to develop a universal terminology in swimming so communication would be more effective. His specialty is teaching coaches to spot the bad habits swimmers fall in to and correcting the behavior by modifying the muscle memory of the athletes. Powers’ clinics incorporate the basic physiology of swimming, season planning and analyzing the four strokes in competitive swimming. He also instructs coaches on the motivations of swimmers, and how to make it more fun for the kids. Ironically, Powers has befriended two WWII veterans, both who served on ships during Operation Flintlock for the battle of Kwajalein. David Bressler, a bosun mate second class, served on the USS Leonard Wood while Lt. Steve Carlson served onboard the USS Mississippi as a divisional gunnery of cer on turret number one. Carlson even supplied Powers with shipboard memorandums that were issued during the ongoing battle, informing the crew of the progress of the battle. Rick Powers
