3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013 Photos by Jared BarrickIwalani Furgeson, left, was selected by the Boys and Girls Club of America to participate on a Teen Advisory Council. Dori DeBrum, right, was chosen to be a youth delegate at the National 4-H Conference in Washington, D.C.By Jamie Simpson CYSS Work Study StudentThe Child, Youth and School Services department and the teen community are all very proud of Iwanlani Furgeson and Dori DeBrum. Furgeson was selected by the Boys and Girls Club of America to participate on a Teen Advisory Council. This council provides feedback and insights related to BGCAÂ’s services to teens, programs offered and much more. The feedback provided by teens is signi cant in making sure the BGCA is a positive place for teens. Ferguson will be representing not only BGCA programs run on Kwajalein, but BGCA programs run all over the global Army teen community. Furthermore, due to FurgesonÂ’s nomination, CYSS staff is attempting to secure her a position at the BGCA Keystone Club National Conference in Atlanta in March. The National 4-H Conference chose DeBrum to be a youth delegate at their event in April in Washington, D.C. Delegates at the conference participate in various activities including engaging in personal development experiences that will increase knowledge, resources and skills; presenting a youth voice about speci c issues to a partnering agency affecting youth and communities nationwide; and creating positive social change in their communities in a meaningful and genuine way. DeBrum will be representing Kwajalein 4-H clubs, but will also be the only delegate at the conference from an Army installation.Furgeson had to be nominated by CYSS staff and show that she was a teen with good standing in the community and good leadership skills among her peers. DeBrum completed numerous essays explaining her community service, involvement in 4-H programs and how she will further develop 4-H on Kwajalein when she returns. Both teens went through a very nerve racking and competitive process for their selections and both are now feeling the bene ts of their hard work. We know that they will both be successful in these individual endeavors, and represent Kwajalein and the Army teen population in a positive light.Standout Kwaj teens represent at national convention, councilMembers of the Republic of the Marshall Islands Kwajalein Atoll Government delegation, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and Reagan Test Site attend the Community Relations Council meeting held at USAKA Jan. 18.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013Excess items waiting for your purchase Hourglass Reports It’s the big building at the very end of the island. Most people rarely venture down there, but you could be missing out. Building 1500, the Defense Center Control Building, houses the Excess Property Processing Facility. With the decrease in island population over the years, there are many items within departments that are no longer used or needed. Malcolm Gowans is the EPPF supervisor. He oversees two EPPF logistic clerks and three warehousemen: Elain Iaman, Shana Loeak, Elmi Johnson, Darrel Lemari and Nebu Patterson. USAKA Government Property Administrator and Plant Clearance Of cer, Lauren Harrold, oversees the disposition operation at the EPPF. Harrold is responsible for approving all reutilization, sales and donations. Together, they all work to reutilize items throughout the contract to save money. Harrold is also in charge of determining if items that are excess to the needs of the government can be donated. They will donate to schools, churches, hospitals and non-pro t organizations on Ebeye and Enniburr. The whole process starts when someone determines they have government property that can no longer be used within their department. They ll out a required 1046 Disposition Form and turn it in to the EPPF, along with the item(s). Check the EPPF/DCCB calendar on the intranet to see which week is the “receiving week” (Kwajweb home page > Contractor Information > KRS > EPPF/DCCB). There is a warehouse receiving area at the DCCB where you turn in your items along with the 1046 form. All government property, even if you consider it scrap or junk, must be tracked. If you have a lot of items to disposition, you can set up an appointment with EPPF and they can arrange to assist; that can include bringing a container to your building, or working with Harrold so that a pre-inventory scrap disposition determination can be conducted at your location instead of hauling it to the DCCB and doing it there. Gowans always says, “Less is best. The less you’re responsible for, the better off you are.” He recommends you disposition anything you are not using and probably never will. You can call property management to get a listing of items that are on your account. If you take the time to comb through your listing and disposition what you don’t need, you will save time on annual inventories and also potentially help save money on the contract. “If we don’t know an item is excess, somebody may be going out and buying that item, when we already have it available for reutilization,” Gowans said. Of ce items such as desks, chairs and ling cabinets are often transferred between departments. Reutilization within the government is always rst, and this is in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Once items arrive at the EPPF, Gowans and his staff take the property that has been identi ed as excess and determine if the items can be reutilized in some other area within the contracts that support the USAKA and RTS mission; this is provided the Army Item Manager has not made a decision for the item to be returned for further use by a government agency. After reutilization screening by the Army and followon screening by USAKA and RTS contractors, excess items are again reported to the on-island government representatives. If the items are allowed to be dispositioned locally, the rst decision by the GPA/PLCO is to determine if the items are eligible to be offered on a Right of First Refusal, which offers the items to the Government of the Republic of the Marshall Islands under the Compact of Free Association. The GRMI can either place a bid on the items or not. If no bid is received, some items can then be offered up in a sealed or Unsolicited Bid Sale here on Kwajalein. Unsolicited Bid Sales are conducted every two weeks at the EPPF. Sealed bid sales are special sales that are The EPPF/DCCB intranet site is a source of information including the receiving and sale calendar and necessary forms for disposition.

Head down to the DCCB to check out items during sale weeks.advertised locally and conducted as needed. The calendar on the intranet shows sales days and hours of operation. “Anyone can come down here and review items for reutilization,” Gowans said. You must wear close toed shoes to enter the building. Show up on any sales day, at any time, to review sales items. When you sign in, you are required to read and review the sales terms. The sales terms are posted on the front desk at the EPPF in both English and Marshallese. Once you have read the terms, you can browse the items in the warehouse. If you see something you would like to purchase, ll out a bid form, which includes your name and contact information, for the items you are bidding on and how much they cost. These forms are passed along to Harrold for review. Once she approves the sale, the forms are sent to KRS nance. The buyer is noti ed of approval and must go to nance to pay for their items. You must show your ID at the nance of ce; the person paying for the item must be the same person who won the bid. Once items are paid for, you have 30 days to pick up your items from the DCCB; you must bring your paid bid form back with you. Since the Barge Slip Ramp has been unavailable, the government has allowed items purchased by Ebeye residents to remain in the EPPF. Special LCM transfers began in December to start hauling that property over to Ebeye. Items with the oldest purchase date are being transferred rst. This special LCM will run once per month through May 2013. There are a lot of items that need to be transferred; if you purchase an item this month, there is no guarantee it will make it on an LCM transfer now through May.Special Bid Sales are occasionally done on Roi-Namur when there are a large amount of items identi ed as excess (normally furniture). Items are reviewed for reutilization and then reported to the USAKA GPA/ PLCO. Then, if warranted, a sale will be advertised and conducted. What if you know of an item you need, but it is not currently at the EPPF for sale? Gowans maintains a Needs and Wants List. “If people are looking for something speci c that we actually don’t have now, we will put them on a list.” He will be on the lookout for those items and call if and when it comes in. Property management staff is standing by to assist with any part of this process. Simply call and ask for assistance. The more people who turn in excess items, the better chance it can be reutilized and help save money on the contract. Michelle and Jason Huwe arrived at Kwajalein Jan. 17, from Olathe, Kan. They heard about Kwajalein through Matt and Mindi Gerber, teachers at Kwajalein High School. Michelle is the new Athletics and Facilities Coordinator, and Jason is the temporary duty Chapel Lead. They are both looking forward to meeting new people and learning to scuba dive during their time here on Kwajalein.Photo by Sheila Gideon


6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013National Honor Society advisor, Matt Gerber, and NHS student, Colleen Furgeson, pack boxes of supplies to bring to Ebeye schools as part of a service project that began last year.Kwajalein National Honor Society students lend a helping hand to neighboring schoolsArticle and photos by Eva Seelye Media SpecialistLast year, the Kwajalein chapter of National Honor Society had an idea to support our Marshallese neighbors on Ebeye; what better way to raise money than our annual Coffee Shop? The vote was unanimous and the decision nal – all proceeds from the 2012 Coffee Shop would go to supplies to our neighboring schools of Calvary, Jabro and SDA. The event was successful and NHS walked away with a substantial pro t. The service project, however, was put on hold until the following year due to minimal time before summer break. This postponement didn’t hinder the group in the least; they picked up the project immediately, sending representatives to each school to ask what supplies they preferred. Upon return, groups were formed for each school and supplies were then found and ordered in bulk. Once the packages arrived, the schools were noti ed and the date was set for Jan. 14. All of NHS met at Matt Gerber’s classroom at precisely 7:30 a.m. to begin loading boxes into trailers and head down to Dock Security Checkpoint. Some of the students from Jabro greeted NHS at the Ebeye dock as everyone started heading towards the schools. Upon arrival at the schools, the students greeted the Kwaj High teens with a welcoming song and traditional Marshallese necklaces. “It was a once in a lifetime experience,” said Molly Premo, a sophomore in NHS. “There were at least a hundred kids at Calvary,” explained Mary McPhatter, vice president of NHS. One of the NHS members then spoke to the group explaining the steps that led them to the deliverance of supplies, followed by a Marshallese translation from another NHS student. The supplies were then presented to the schools. They varied from paints and notebooks to basketballs and packs of 144 ping pong balls. The teachers as well as the students were thrilled. After this exciting presentation came the games. The students had brought a variety of fun lled activities to allow both the Ebeye students and the Kwaj students to interact and have a great time. Many of the groups played the toilet paper ice-breaker game. The kids were told to take as much toilet paper as they needed for a week. Then, for each square, the student had to say one thing about themselves. Human knot, “one-two-three look up,” and Simon Says were other games that were popular with the kids. However, one game that they all truly enjoyed was the “Hugging Game.” The kids were told to spread out. Then, when the leader calls out a number, the students had to get into a group with said amount of people. Some of the students played volleyball and basketball games as well. After two hours of fun activities, the NHS students returned to Kwaj. They were sincerely thanked by every individual student and teacher. As they departed, hugs were shared and inside jokes were expressed one more time. Malkie Loeak, a senior in NHS, stated, “Although I translated, I believe the games and activities created a greater understanding and bond between the two schools.” Not only was it a great time, it was an unforgettable experience – allowing the NHS students to make a difference in our neighbors’ education. NHS students, Eltina John, left, and Rachel DeLange, explain in English and then Marshallese how the donated items were purchased.


7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013 By Rebekah LaBar and Dustin WilliamsRTS Weather MeteorologistsIt was a relatively normal year for Kwajalein weather in 2012; certainly not what the Mayans predicted. As we enter 2013, let us look back on several aspects of our weather during the last year. Rainfall At Kwajalein Island, 87.51 inches of rain fell during 2012, which is 6.21 inches shy of the yearly average, 93.72 inches. Aside from May, which was wetter than average, the rst eight months of the year were close to normal. At the end of August, rainfall accumulation for the year to date was just 0.94 inches above average. The months of September, October and November, usually the wettest of the year, were well below normal. During this three month stretch, 19.44 inches of rain fell, which is only 58 percent of the 33.79-inch average amount for the same time. December was a very wet month with 15.33 inches falling, well above the 8.13 inches average, due in large part to a couple of developing tropical waves. This erased 7.20 inches from the yearly de cit, but the year as a whole still ended up below normal. Why was 2012 drier than normal, especially during the heart of the wet season? In a normal wet season, the Intertropical Convergence Weather quirks of 2012 explained Zone, an area of colliding low-level trade winds, settles in the central RMI and produces a band of heavy precipitation and thick clouds, aided by an upper-level trough to the north. This wet season, the ITCZ was disorganized and inconsistent due to the absence of the upperlevel trough. In spite of being below average overall, 2012 featured two of the wettest days on record. Here are the top 10 wettest days for Kwajalein Island, dating back to 1954, with those from 2012 in bold: Dec. 16, 1972 11.19 inches June 2, 1995 8.82 inches May 17, 1980 8.35 inches May 6, 1980 7.28 inches Nov. 24, 1975 7.24 inches Dec. 17, 1972 7.12 inches March 24, 1955 6.40 inches Dec. 19, 2012 6.36 inches Oct. 19, 1968 6.10 inches June 18, 2012 5.52 inches Thunderstorms Kwajalein Atoll only averages around 10-12 thunderstorm days per year. In 2012, there were 17 thunderstorm days. The most active month for thunderstorms was July, with ve thunderstorm days. Of particular note were thunderstorms that developed on July 14 around the southern atoll, producing several dozen detected cloudto-ground lightning strikes during the morning hours. Later in the year, on Sept. 8, a large cluster of thunderstorms produced electrical activity all around the atoll during the early morning hours, with a couple hundred detected lightning strikes in just a few hours. El Nio/La Nia/ Madden-Julian Oscillation Sea surface temperature and heat content in the equatorial Paci c Ocean have important consequences for weather around the world. El Nio (La Nia) is characterized by a positive (negative) sea surface temperature anomaly in this region. Early in 2012, an established weak La Nia was in place, in general meaning drier than average weather for Kwajalein Atoll, which was the case. La Nia dissipated in April, leaving near average sea surface temperatures in the equatorial Paci c for the rest of the year. When conditions are neutral, the Madden-Julian Oscillation, a tropical disturbance that propagates eastward around the globe in 30-60 days, becomes a more important driver of weather in the global tropics. KwajaleinÂ’s above average precipitation in May, followed by a near normal June, is likely the result of an MJO phase. As neutral conditions continued through the rest of the year, and are projected to continue through early 2013, normal to slightly below normal precipitation has been and will continue to be the rule for Kwajalein Atoll. Maj. Billy L. LeJeune is the new Director of Logistics at U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and a helicopter pilot. He is here on orders from Fort Polk, La. His wife, Jessica; sons, Jackson, 15, and Cameron, 11; and daughter, Brianne, 10, stayed in Louisiana, but will be coming to Kwajalein in the summer to visit. While here, LeJeune is looking forward to shing and ying the LUH-72s.Photo by Sheila Gideon
