Marshallese Language Both Marshallese and English are the official languages of the Marshall Islands. Marshallese belongs to the Austronesian Language Family, the most geographically widespread language family in the world. Of the Austronesian languages, Marshallese is a member of the Malayo Polynesian group, a group which contains 880 different languages. In the Marshalls, two major dialects have emerged, one in the Ralik chain and one in the Ratak chain of atolls. The differences between the two dialects is minor.Post office changes are difficult now, but will be worth itHourglass ReportsNew post of ce boxes are causing some challenges, but if residents will just hang in there for one more week, the payoff will be worth it. Installation of new boxes began last week. With new boxes come new combinations and for some, new addresses. Those with PO boxes that end in “9” will keep their PO box number, but their box will be moved to the back of the north wall and east wall (facing the USAKA Headquarters Building). New combinations are available for all boxes. Retrieve your new combo from the delivery window during open hours of operation (11-30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; 3-6 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday). Check immediately to make sure your combination works; if there is an issue, post of ce staff needs to know right away. Directions on how to operate the new boxes are posted; ask a postal worker for assistance if you need help. While operations at the post of ce are hectic now, they will even out in a week or so. The new boxes have no rust and will be much easier to open and close compared to the old ones; they will last years without needing to be replaced. The new boxes are also taller, which will better accommodate bills from Finance and magazines.Check your PO box for postal announcements containing important updates and information about the post of ce. This includes information on how to prepare your PO box when you leave for vacation or TDY, acceptable mail addressing and customs. It also includes the C-17 Saturday schedule. The post of ce is also undergoing construction on the roof. Proceed with caution when entering and exiting the building. Do not walk across or remove any caution tape. The work is moving quickly and should be nished soon. The Roi post of ce hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday through Friday; personnel take their lunch break from noon to 1 p.m. so the post of ce remains open during the regular lunch hour. If you have any questions regarding the post of ce or the new boxes, contact Gina Heidle, postal supervisor, at 53461.


3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing Editor After a one-year hiatus, the Yokwe Yuk WomenÂ’s Club Basket Auction came back in full force Sunday evening at the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room. The Basket Auction is a fundraising event; all proceeds go to educational grants in the Marshall Islands and Micronesia. In one evening, $15,085 was raised. YYWC volunteers spent the year soliciting donations from the community. Basket donations can include anything. Some baskets were lled with sweets, kitchen ware, movies, health products, beach apparel or games. Some baskets offered services such as a day of shing, a sunset sail or classes like basket-making. These basket donations were bid on via a silent auction. Attendees had two hours to place their bids. In the last ve minutes, there was quite the rush, and competition, to be the last one to write their name in order to win favorite items. Besides the silent auction items, there was also a live auction run by Al Robinson. Cindy Westhoff spent hours sewing two Kwajalein T-shirt quilts. The bidding was erce and they alone raised $2,200. The other live auction item was a four-course gourmet meal cooked by Deb Douthat. The dinner for up to eight people went for an impressive $1,500. Because it was so popular, Douthat offered up a second dinner to be auctioned off later that evening that was claimed for $1,875. The third component to the auction was the raf e. There were four possible prizes. Raf e tickets were placed in baskets for each prize; if you fancied one over the other, you could put more tickets in that basket. Prizes included an island photo donated by John Breen, island stained glass donated by Jayne Cavender, an underwater photo from Rob Clayton and a story pottery bowl from Denise Dorn. The Basket Auction was incredibly successful this year and raised the most money the YYWC has seen for this event in years. A heartfelt thank you to those who donated and participated in the event was given by YYWC President, DeDe Hall at end of the evening.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 U.S. Ambassador to the RMI, Thomas Armbruster, speaks at the Kwajalein Atoll Memorial Day ceremony Feb. 9 on Ebeye. Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorDonned in traditional green, Kwajalein Atoll residents and guests gathered at the Loioen Weto Grounds on Ebeye Feb. 9 for the 69th annual Kwajalein Atoll Memorial Day. Memorial Day commemorates the liberation of Kwajalein Atoll from Japan by the United States during World War II. The day started with a parade from Ebeye Pier to the ceremony grounds. Ebeye residents and school children lined the streets to observe. The Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School band, directed by Dick Shields, marched behind the Ebeye Police Department, carrying the colors of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Kwajalein Atoll and the United States. At the ceremony grounds, Master of Ceremonies, Ben “Jerry” Jacklick, announced each distinguished guest, who came forward to shake hands with Iroij/ Senator Michael Kabua and Mayor Johnny Lemari. U.S. Ambassador to the RMI, Thomas Armbruster, traveled from Majuro for the ceremony. Representatives from U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nation Of ce included Maj. Alonzo Garcia, Maj. Matt Sova and Michael Sakaio. Representatives from Kwajalein Range Services included Ben Souther and his wife, Amy, and Harden Lelet. Before the guest speakers took the podium, the local parade of oats drove through the streets. There were buses and trucks with hand-painted signs with messages to the community. Representatives from each group also walked or rode with the oat. Everyone gathered at the sidewalk to watch them go by. A big yellow bus from Kwajalein Atoll High School depicted a student asleep at his desk, dreaming of graduation. The third oat had local children holding signs and dressed up depicting what they want to be when they grow up, including a lawyer, doctor and the president. The ceremony began with the Invocation by Rev. Jibo Benjamin of Ebeye United Church of Christ. Next was the raising of the ags by the RMI National Police and the Kwajalein Atoll Local Government Police. Good News Choir sang the national anthems of the Republic of the Marshall Islands and of Kwajalein Atoll. The KHS band played the national anthem of the U.S.Kabua welcomed residents, guests and distinguished visitors to the ceremony. Following, Iroij Kotak Loeak, chairman of the Council of Iroijs, spoke.Armbruster addressed the crowd saying, “Yokwe, jera (Hello, friends).” He spoke of World War II and the many great men who were lost and should be remembered for their courage. He talked about the unexploded ordnance team that will be here in the spring to identify and destroy WWII ordnance. “We can’t plan for everything,” he said. “But we can have faith in our capabilities and our strengths and our ability to work together to solve problems. ... Kommol tata (thank you).”Senator Jeban Riklon presented remarks as well. Lastly, Minister Tony DeBrum, speaking on behalf of President Christopher Loeak, addressed the audience.The ceremony ended with thank you remarks from Lemari and the Benediction by Rev. Karou Kaious from Assembly of God. Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School band, directed by Dick Shields, plays music at the Ebeye Pier to start the parade at Kwajalein Atoll Memorial Day Feb. 9.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 Photo by Linn EzellTeens learn about consequences of underage drinkingBy Yomoko Bokean and Scott Swanby KHS Student Guest Writers On Jan. 31, the Namo Weto Youth Center Director, Jared Barrick, gave a presentation on alcohol awareness to the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School students at the local teen center. There was a high attendance rate amongst the Keystone and Torch Club members, both youth organizations. The presentation was scheduled because of recent activities that occurred during winter break and earlier in the year. The presentation was to inform the teens of the dangers of alcohol abuse and binge drinking. The PowerPoint presentation included slides covering the mental, social, physical, emotional and legal consequences of underage drinking. The facts presented and the following discussion shocked many students. Student Eltina John said, “I had no idea every year 5,000 teens die from alcohol-related injuries.” Another student was amazed by who is usually injured in alcohol related car accidents. Half of those killed by teen drunk drivers are passengers in other people’s cars, according to the presentation. To relate better to the kids, Barrick shared lessons he learned during his adolescence. His personal narratives and anecdotes made the presentation more personal and immediate. During the presentation, Barrick answered questions and concerns brought forth from the presentation. The questions ranged from legal penalties of underage drinking to the possible nancial consequences of underage drinking. Barrick wanted more participants to become involved in his presentation, so he asked how the teens felt about some of the consequences. Many responded that they did not think that drinking was worth the trouble if you were caught, so why do it? All who attended learned a valuable lesson about underage drinking and the effects it can have on them. Last week, students worked on various advertisement ideas for a contest to raise awareness of alcohol-related issues here on Kwajalein. The projects will be judged later this month by community members. The Keystone and Torch Club would like to thank Barrick for his guidance, direction and leadership.

Sixteen teams of four runners participated. The event was handicapped, using the combined age plus gender of each team’s four runners. The team with the greatest handicap started rst and the others at scienti cally computed delays. The science came from an ancient table in a 1970s Runner’s World magazine. First to start this year was a team comprised of Sean Hepler, Jacob Long, Katherine Giedroc and Kayla Hepler, all aged between 8 and 10. Last to start was a team of ninth grade boys, having to wait 9 minutes and 15 seconds to begin, and having watched Hepler already tag Long. The ninth-graders, Sam Jahnke, Michael Sykes, David Sholar and Kendall Westhoff, chased down all but one team, and nished second. The winning team of Ted Trimble, Ben Bartyzel, Brent and Krystal Peterson all ran sub-seven actual miles, to produce an almost two minute lead over second place. The team produced two of the four sub ve net miles this year with Krystal’s 4:42 and Bartyzel’s 4:44. The other sub ve nets were Hannah DeLange’s 4:49 and Julia Sholar’s 4:51. Fastest actual miles for the ladies was Krystal’s 6:26 and for the guys, Westhoff’s 5:46. This event is characterized by diversity of participants. The age difference between youngest and oldest participants, Tessa Delisio and Victor Langhans, was an amazing 62 years! You’ll have to ask them their ages though. An all-Army team was led by Dean Wiley, including Wiley’s son Austin. The team did not get much total handicap, nishing 12th.
