The system moved north to Maloelap Atoll, east of Kwaj, where it became a weak tropical storm. By the time the storm turned west towards Kwajalein it had weakened to a tropical depression. Very light rain fell at Kwajalein between midnight and 6 a.m. on Dec. 16, 1972. Between 6 a.m., Dec. 16 and 6 a.m., Dec. 17, rain fell, the likes of which had never been seen since U.S. Army Soldiers captured the island in 1944, or has been seen since. A total of 17.15 inches of rain fell in that 24-hour period. The second highest rainfall was a mere 8.82 inches on June 2, 1995. Six-hour rain totals at Kwajalein for December 16-17, 1972: Midnight to 6 a.m: .08” 6 a.m. to noon: .74” Noon to 6 p.m.: 4.90” 6 p.m. to midnight: 5.47” — 11.19” on Dec. 16, 1972. Midnight to 6 a.m: 6.04” 6 a.m. to noon: .63” Noon to 6 p.m: .43” 6 p.m. to midnight: .02” — 7.12” on Dec. 17, 1972. El Nio was very strong in 1972, and the ITCZ trough was very active and persistent over the Marshall Islands throughout the rainy season.The deadline for article and photo submissions, Community Notices and For Sale ads is Wednesday at noon to make it into Saturday’s Hourglass.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 Find the Frequently Asked Questions document regarding the Enterprise email migration on the Kwajweb homepage. Email changes for all USAKA usersBy Sheila Gideon Managing EditorChange is coming, and Information Technology Services is working to keep you informed throughout the upcoming transition. By Dec. 31, all U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll computer users will be migrated to a new offisland Enterprise email system, also referred to as “Mail. mil.” This change is a Department of Defense mandated, global initiative affecting all branches of the DoD. Advantages to this migration include access to email anywhere, at any time, from any authorized, CACequipped computer; email accounts will remain active during duty station moves; and users will be able to nd email addresses and contact information of DoD email users at other locations across DoD in the Global Address List. Phase one of the migration will move users over to their new pro les with the Enterprise system. Individual noti cations from IT will be sent out a few days before you are switched over. Some users will be noti ed this week and all users will be noti ed by Dec. 31. Separate noti cations are being sent out giving instructions on how to prepare your mailbox for migration. Even though your email address will change, your accounts will temporarily be linked to allow users to ease into migration. After Dec. 31, no email can be sent from or received by your SMDC account; however, any mail sent to your SMDC address after that time will automatically be forwarded. In phase two, users will be given instructions on how to reduce the size of their SMDC mailboxes as close to 50MB as possible; while our current system has unlimited storage space, the Enterprise system has a maximum mailbox size limit. Any email left in your SMDC account will still be accessible for a period of time. Eventually, users will have to transfer any emails they wish to keep over to their new pro le. Detailed steps on how to migrate your mail from your SMDC account to your new Enterprise pro le will be distributed. Anyone who manages a shared email folder, such as the Coconut Wire or AFN Roller, will be migrated in the same manner. Details on that process will be sent out by IT. With change comes questions. IT has prepared a Frequently Asked Questions document to answer your concerns regarding this transition. Refer to this document on the Kwajweb homepage. If your questions are not answered there, go up your chain of command. If you still need help, only then call the Help Desk.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 The Child Development Center staff earned national accreditation from NAEYC.Photo by Sheila GideonKwajalein CDC staff earn national accreditationKwajalein teens take on big responsibilityBy Jared Barrick CYSS Youth Services DirectorYear after year, the hard working staff of the CYSS Child Development Center diligently strive to educate the young children of Kwajalein. Their dedication and passion for their craft shows every day in the smiles of the students they teach. This past week, the CDC accomplished a distinctive annual goal, as they became re-certi ed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. The NAEYC is a nationally recognized accreditation body that provides our CDC staff with the necessary tools and curriculum to properly educate preschool-aged children. Furthermore, the body acts as an evaluator to ensure that our staff is meeting all the needs of the children in their care. The NAEYC evaluates everything from curriculum development, facility safety, staff training, child assessment and much more. It is a very thorough process, but one that the CDC staff welcomes, as it is necessary to provide proper education to our students. Although the certi cation task may seem tedious at times, and is very detailed, the CYSS CDC Director, Marla BushWilliams, properly ensured that every requirement was met, and that the Kwajalein children are afforded every opportunity any stateside preschool student would receive. I am so grateful for the young men and women who work within the CDC facilities. If you have ever met, or interacted with them, you know that caring for children is much more than a job for these team members – it is a passion and a calling. I would like to offer a special thanks to all the hard working directors, teachers, aids, kitchen staff, clerical team, School Age team members who help out when needed and parent volunteers for providing unbelievable service to our island community. This certi cation would not be possible without the following dedicated members of the CYSS staff: Marla Bush-Williams, CDC Director; Susannah Prenoveau, Trainer/SAS Director; Karen Tyson, CDC Lead Teacher; Carmen Jeadrik, CDC Lead Teacher; Angie Sanborn, CDC Program Assistant; Diana Seremai, CDC Program Assistant; Sophia Graham, CDC Program Assistant; Linda Jamie, CDC Program Assistant and “Snack Nanny”; SueAnn Lejjena, CDC Program Assistant; June Walker, SAS Lead; Sonnybhoy Sallador, SAS Assistant; Katie Lemburg, Youth Sports and Fitness Director and Saimon Balos, Youth Program Assistant. Article and photo by Jared Barrick CYSS Youth Services DirectorThe Army Paci c Teen Panel is an organization dedicated to the improvement of the lives of teens living on Army installations throughout the Paci c region. Selected representatives communicate relevant youth issues to Paci c Region Army Leadership and to the Army Teen Panel to improve Army teen programs and serve as role models for other youth at their installation.Mereille Bishop and Yomoko Kemem were selected as the Kwajalein representatives to the 2013 Paci c Teen Panel. There are numerous requirements just to be considered for PTP nomination, including a minimum school GPA, community service involvement and teen center activities. Candidates must complete several essays outlining their school work, community service and club involvements. If selected, they prepare monthly reports outlining activities on their installations and participate in monthly video teleconferences to meet and discuss teen issues with the other representatives in the PTP. A Youth Leadership Forum is held with all Paci c representatives as the culminating event of the PTP year. It gives Army teens the opportunity to raise issues directly with top ranking Army or MWR leadership. Yomoko Kemem, left, and Mereille Bishop are the 2013 Pacific Teen Panel representatives for Kwajalein.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 Jamie Simpson, right, leads a game of Jeopardy at the Youth Center during the lock-in last weekend.Kwaj teens pull an all nighterBy Jamie Simpson KHS Student Guest Writer Each year the Kwajalein Youth Center hosts two lock-ins – one in December and another in April. The fun begins around 10 p.m. and lasts until 6 a.m. While teens have the option to sleep, most teens stay up the entire night and partake in the various activities and events. This year, the staff consisted of Jared Barrick, Saimon Balos, Karen Tyson and Sophia Graham. A wide variety of activities presented themselves to the attendees, including a team Jeopardy game, a Christmas service project, open recreation time and dodgeball at the Corlett Recreation Center. Beginning at the Youth Center, the Jeopardy game, led by Jamie Simpson, challenged teens with trivia regarding the teen center, Kwajalein teachers, movies, music, words beginning with the letter “O” and celebrities. First prize, won by Malkie Loeak, Scott Swanby, Jennifer Hibberts, Kaulu Kaluhiokalani, Yomoko Kemem and Stephanie Hibberts, included an assortment of snacks and couch privileges – which came in handy at around 3:30 a.m. The staff then gave teens some open-rec time as they prepared for the trip to the CRC. During this open-rec time, Paci c Teen Panel members Mereille Bishop and Yomoko Kemem gave teens the opportunity to voice concerns or make suggestions to improve the quality of life for teens on Kwaj. Bishop and Kemem wrote down the proposals to take to their next PTP meeting. Eventually, the staff and teens traveled to the CRC gymnasium to play dodgeball. While many lock-in activities have changed over the years, dodgeball remains a beloved tradition. The competition began with a boys vs. girls game. The girls fought hard but lost in the end. At that point, teams split into juniors and seniors against all other grades. The upperclassmen had strength, but the underclassmen had greater numbers, so the battle eld evened out. After a long fray, the game ended and Hibberts led a team building exercise that taught teens how to ask for help in dif cult situations. It was a challenging and rewarding experience. Shortly thereafter, everyone departed the CRC and journeyed back to the Youth Center where open-rec time continued. During their free time, teens played Xbox, watched “Unaccompanied Minors,” ate ham and cheese sandwiches, played other teen center games, or slept. After a long night of fun, the doors opened at 6 a.m. and Barrick allowed the teens to return home. Overall, the attendees believed the lock-in was a success. They would like to thank Barrick, Balos, Tyson, Graham, and Community Activities for making the event possible.

Front row, from left, Pam Melinauskas, Jeff Sudderth, Laura Callaway. Back row, from left, Jeremy Owens, David Medora, Tommy Ryon, Stan Jazwinski and Andy Estacion.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor The 2012 volleyball league was set up differently this year. There was a high school league with all student teams, and the A League was all adults, except for the Spartans Varsity team. The intensity and competition was no different than previous years. Undefeated Ohana claimed the coconut trophy for the school league, while the Floaters took the championship title for the A League.The sophomore team, Jump N Bump, entered into the nals Dec. 14 with the hope of giving the junior team, Ohana, their rst and worst loss of the season. The rst match started off very close; teams were within two points of each other until they hit double digits. Team Ohana was stacked with big hitters JJ Wase, Kaulu Kaluhiokalani, Keith Brady and Jimmy Beio. Serves by Wase grazed the net and came close to the line, sending his team on a scoring streak. Jump N Bump had their own assets, like their tallest player Molly Premo, who dominated at the net. She and teammate Dori DeBrum did whatever it took to make some amazing saves. Mereille Bishop and Roanna Zackhras showed off their accurate serves and went on scoring streaks of their own. Despite Jump N Bump’s coach Mindi Gerber’s chants of, “Keep ghting,” team Ohana took the championship title, winning the rst match 25-15 and the second 25-14.In the A League, Spartans rallied their spirit and fought their way into the championship game. Last year, team Dig It beat the Floaters in the championship match. This year, they faced each other in the semi nals of the playoffs. The rst match was a blow out, Floaters winning 25-13. The second match had everyone on their seats. Floaters managed to squeak out a 25-23 victory and head to the championship game.At the championship game Tuesday, the bleacher full of Spartans fans, some with their faces painted, helped the Spartans catch up in the rst match after Floaters started strong with a 13-6 lead. Each team played very technically. Floaters’ Tommy Ryon, who is 6-foot 4-inches tall, switched from slamming hits at the other team to lightly tipping it into vulnerable spaces left unguarded. David Medora had accurate serves that were dif cult to return; he went on a serving streak in the rst match. While double blocks by Floaters’ front line was a great defense, Spartans hitters were still able to get a few past them. Kaluhiokalani and Wase (who also played in the school league for Ohana) did major damage at the net. Brady and Jared Wase were big blockers for the Spartans. The whole team did what it took to make saves; just when you thought the ball was going to hit the oor, they would dive to save it. The rst match looked like it was going easily to Floaters, then Spartans rallied and caught up; however, Floaters still took the match 25-19. The second match was tied almost the entire game. Spartans took an early lead, would get a few points ahead, and then Floaters would tie it up again. Once the score got in the 20s, the volleys got heated. Floaters’ Jeff Sudderth nished the last three points with big spikes. Floaters took the championship title, winning 25-22.

THANK YOU Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2012 indoor volleyball season a huge success. It was a really fun season – complete with victories, upsets, bumps, sets and spikes. It took a lot of effort by so many different people and everyone involved did an excellent job. Thank you to Jeff Sudderth who volunteered to lead the of cials clinic. His knowledge, expertise and willingness to educate and volunteer were greatly appreciated. Also, I want to thank Thompson Tarwoj, Labtak Langrus and Linber Anej for helping to oversee league play as night supervisors. Thanks to the Kwajalein Sports Association for helping teams ful ll their of ciating obligations and responsibilities. All the of cials did a great job helping to maintain the integrity of the league and making play safe and fun for everyone. A special thanks goes to Denise Dorn, who painted the awesome coconut trophies for league winners. Finally, volleyball wouldn’t have been complete without the assistance of all of our coaches and managers. Your interest, efforts and support were greatly appreciated. The success of this year’s season was all due to the efforts of everyone involved. So again, thank you so much! We could not have done it without you. Enjoy the holidays and get ready for basketball and inner tube water polo. — Mandie Morris Recreation and Programs Manager From left, Pam Melinauskas and Tommy Ryon block JJ Wase’s spike during the A League championship game Tuesday.


8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012Kwajalein residents climb aboard the holiday trailer to go caroling and see decorated houses during the first-ever Community Caroling and Christmas Island Light Up the Night event.Spreading holiday cheer: the island way The Premo family channeled Clark Griswold and took first place in the holiday decorating contest for housing.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorA new tradition (hopefully) began on Kwajalein this year. The Community Caroling and Christmas Island Light Up the Night event was held Dec. 15, at the Multi-Purpose Room at the high school. The event was co-sponsored by Community Activities, Quality of Life, National Honor Society, Elementary School Student Council and Spartan Expresso. The MP Room was conveniently decorated from the holiday concerts with a replace, Christmas tree, snowmen, presents, snow akes and twinkling lights. Eager residents got to the MP right at 6:30 p.m. for their free hot dog supper and hot beverage. There were two vehicles that departed every 15 minutes to tour you around the island and view all the participating quarters in the holiday decorating contest. Kwajalein High School student Kori Dowell was the team coordinator for the bus. She handed out song books and led the caroling. She even pointed out which quarters you passed so you could vote for your favorite in the contest. KHS student Mary McPhatter was the coordinator for the tractor trailer. Kids really spread the Christmas cheer, yelling, “Merry Christmas!” and, “Happy Holidays!” to everyone they passed. The loud music and singing brought people out of their houses to wave at the carolers. Anne Dowell even threw candy to the carolers. Kids faces lit up almost as bright as their houses as they proudly proclaimed which one was theirs. Some residents really got into the holiday spirit and tried to outdo Clark Griswold with their decorations. Island residents voted and rst place for the housing contest went to the Premos. The Dowells and Shields tied for second place. For the BQ contest, Tony Savage took rst place, the Gerbers took second and the Metelaks got third. Crafts were available while you waited for your turn to go caroling. You could make elf hats, gingerbread wreaths and 3-D tree-shaped ornaments. This could be the start of a new holiday tradition here on Kwajalein. The fun even spread to Roi-Namur, where they hosted their own holiday decorating contest. Members of the Elementary School Student Council serve up hot dogs, chips, carrots and water to residents at the MP Room during the caroling event Dec. 15.
