2The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 8, 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.

Roderick PrioleauPublic Affairs Of cer .................William WhiteManaging Editor ......................Sheila Gideon Media Specialist............................Eva Seelye Media Specialist.........................Chris Delisio The 45th annual tree lighting event kicked off the 2012 Kwaj holiday season. I would like to express my deep gratitude to everyone who made it possible: the CA Crew, you stayed with me in the pouring rain preparing all day Saturday, then we did it all again on Monday; Dan Hopkins, our sound man and performer extraordinaire; Pure Polynesia the go-to island band; Denise Dorn, artist in residence; Mark Houseman who suits up when needed; the Outrigger Canoe Club for entertaining Santa and helping him make a grand entrance; Anne Dowell and all the wheel walkers and elves; Vange Ebel and Joanie Drefus for helping with crafts; the PTO, Girl Talk Group, 4-H Club, Yacht Club and Bill Williamson for adding something extra to the evening; all of the amazing performers; Darryl Mathieson for giving us wheels; the metal shop for keeping the roof on things; JT Theel and the electric shop for ensuring the light magic happened; and anyone else who helped make the holidays a little brighter. It literally takes an island to make an event like this happen. This was my fth tree lighting ceremony and it was by far the best, in spite of the weather. I think that the song Dan performed, “Christmas Wish,” sums up the goal of this event well: “Christmas is a time to come together, a time to put all differences aside. And I reach out my hand to the family of man to share the joy I feel at Christmas time.” Our next big event is Dec. 15, the night of caroling and judging for the “Christmas Island Light Up the Night” competition. Don’t forget to register your quarters with CA. — Kim Yarnes, Community Activities ManagerAs a result of the BSR being out of service, a special LCM to transfer material obtained via a Bid Sale from the DCCB to Ebeye will be conducted at 1 p.m. on Friday. The customer must have a signed, stamped paid receipt for the material prior to loading. Shipments will be prioritized by DCCB personnel based on age of the sale. If you have any questions, contact the DCCB at 51076. Someone with a copy of the receipt must be present on Ebeye to take possession of the material upon arrival. This service will occur once a month through May 2013. Ken wot an kilek BSR oob eo, ewor special LCM non komakit jet ian mweik ko jen DCCB non Ebeye ilo 1pm Friday, 14 Dec.

Photo by Sheila GideonRandy Wilson is the new KRS Community Services Manager here at Kwajalein. He heard about Kwajalein from his Coast Guard friends. He is originally from Black Mountain, N.C., but most recently from the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. While here at Kwajalein, Wilson is looking forward to shing, boating and learning to dive. He is also looking forward to working with folks to make life better out here now and in the future.

Article and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorShe probably has one of the most recognizable faces and certainly one of the most visible jobs on island. Kim Yarnes is the Community Activities manager and most of you know her for her role in planning and running island-wide events. However, there is a lot more to her job that most either don’t know she manages, or is done behind the scenes. Yarnes is responsible for the theaters, library, Hobby Shop, golf course, special events, vendor licenses, Adopt-anArea program, equipment reservations, Post Of ce and supervising Media Services and Roi CA. Yarnes’ undergraduate and graduate studies were focused on communication, though she has also studied theater, art and psychology. Yarnes does not work a typical 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. schedule like most on island. She frequently works weekends, evenings and holidays. She is also frequently out of her of ce doing inspections on CA facilities and prepping for events. While Yarnes works a varied schedule, business regarding CA should be reserved for work hours only. The CA of ce is open from 8 a.m. to noon, Tuesday through Saturday. Rebecca Autry is the new CA administrative assistant and can answer any of your questions and process any payments. When Yarnes is not available, you should direct any CA business to Autry. For afterhours communication, email is the best way to contact Yarnes. Community EventsCommunity events are Yarnes’ specialty. While events may be the most visible to the community, they are not the most frequently utilized part of CA. “The Hobby Shop is busy with people every single weekend or we always have kids that are coming to the library. Those are like lit-Behind the scenes at the most visible department on islandtle events or activities that are happening all the time,” Yarnes said. The annual Tree Lighting ceremony and Fourth of July beach party are the largest CA events of the year. Throughout the year, CA hosts several smaller events like the Swap Meet, Double Features at the Rich Theater and holiday beach blasts. CA also partners with Retail Services and private organizations to host events like the annual Kwajalein Open golf tournament or a New Year’s Eve party at the Ocean View.Yarnes strives to make special events frequent, original and entertaining for all age groups and dynamics on island. What some may not realize is that Yarnes begins work on the community calendar in August for the following year. The 2013 community calendar is being approved and will be published to the community this month. When planning the calendar, Yarnes strives to balance events for youth and families with events for adults and unaccompanied personnel. “We like to keep people entertained,” Yarnes said with a smile. The CA crew is only made up of four full-time employees and is supplemented by three part timers. “The crew is sort of the heart of everything that we do in Community Activities,” Yarnes said. “A lot of people don’t realize it’s the same people that are setting up the tents and delivering the equipment … that are also cleaning the facilities, grooming the tennis courts and emptying the trashes at the beach. So, when we have a lot of special events going on, they have even more to do and less time to do it in.” Accommodating 10 small reservations versus four large ones is actually more dif cult and time consuming. The holiday season and graduation are the busiest times for reservations. Equipment Reservations You can rent tents (with or without rope lights), chairs, tables, table cloths, BBQ grills and the bounce castle from CA. Reservations are not con rmed until you pay at the CA of ce; payment must be made at least two business days in advance. Reservations for 2013 open this month. If you know you have a senior graduating, a club event, or a special birthday coming up, “Get it on the books,” Yarnes recommended. It is easier to make last minute changes to a reservation (i.e. number of chairs, tables) than to make a last minute reservation. Equipment that is out on the island and is set up has already

Theaters: Rich and Yuk Movies shown at both theaters are provided by AAFES. They are only available in VHS format and therefore can only be shown on our “state-of-the-art” VCR. CA puts out the movie schedule monthly, but because they are sent through the mail, the schedule could change last minute due to a mail delay. For the most up-to-date schedule, see the CA intranet page, AFN Roller and weekly TV and Entertainment Guide. Also check the Coconut Wire, Hourglass and Roller for special Double Features and concession sales. If your club or group is looking to do a fundraiser, contact CA to sign up to offer concessions at the Rich Theater. Grace Sherwood Library The library is staffed partially by volunteers and the volunteer coordinator, Vange Ebel. Every Wednesday at 10 a.m. there is the elementary and Pre-K Story Hour. The library also offers special events throughout the year like “Drop Everything And Read” Day or Dr. Suess’ birthday. There are four .com computers in the library. The library is public and open to everybody. Hobby ShopDenise Dorn is the person to seek out at the Hobby Shop to show you how to make clay creations. You can purchase a day pass, punch pass or a six-month family or individual membership. Dorn offers kids and adult classes to learn the basics. Dax Mitchell offers a periodic wheel throwing class. The Hobby Shop will hold the annual holiday open house from 5-8 p.m., Friday. Join in on food, music, prizes and fun. The woodshop is also open to island residents. You must take the woodshop orientation offered the rst Tuesday of every month.Holmberg Fairways Tony Savage is the new golf course superintendant at Holmberg Fairways. He is offering a ladies golf clinic in January to learn the fundamentals and rules. For kids, putt-putt golf is offered throughout the year. The next date is Dec. 23. The golf course partners with the Kwajalein Golf Association to offer golf tournaments on a semi-monthly basis. The Backwards Golf Tournament will be held on Monday. The golf course crew has over 20 years experience at Holmberg Fairways. Adopt-an-Area There are 34 areas available for adoption around Kwajalein. You can adopt as an individual, group or club. You are responsible for picking up man-made trash, not for trimming trees or cutting the grass. While bi-weekly is encouraged, you can clean your area as often as you want. Right now, the list is very empty, so volunteers are needed! Sign-ups are for one year, beginning in January. Vendors Licenses Licenses are valid from January to December. Renewals for 2013 are due by Dec. 29. Turn in your application to the CA of ce with the service or goods you plan to provide, AAFES approval, $25 application fee, how you plan to have items shipped, and any certi cations or insurance necessary. You can nd the list of on-island vendors and their goods/services offered on the CA intranet site; it is updated monthly. It is easy to enjoy the island community activities without thinking of all the effort put forth by the CA department to keep those facilities and events available to us. So, while you’re enjoying the double feature tonight at the Rich Theater, or looking through your photos of this year’s Tree Lighting, remember that it was all made possible by the hard work of the CA crew.Photos by Angela MitchellCA SPOTLIGHT, from page 3 Above, the Cub Scouts participate in the Raingutter Regatta on Nov. 26 at Emon Beach A-Frame.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012 DISPATCH FROM ROI Article and photos by Bob Whitehead RNCC Secretary/TreasurerDuring the weekends of Nov. 18 and Nov. 25, 15 dedicated members of the Roi-Namur Country Club participated in the 2012 edition of the RNCC Annual Club Championship. Bob Emmert won the gross score championship and Sung Whitehead won the net score championship. As a point of interest, Emmert would have won both titles except for an aberrant tee shot on hole 17 during the second weekend of competition. Curse you golf gods! For the rest of us, there’s always next year. The RNCC would like to thank Laura PasquarellaSwain and her grounds crew for preparing the course, Quentin ‘Rey’ Baldado for barbecuing the post-tournament chicken, and Ricky Everette for running to the PX and picking up the hot dogs and other refreshments.The 2012 RNCC Annual Club Championship participants.
