YouÂ’ll be sorely missed! Government History Germany purchased the Marshall Islands from Spain in 1899. Japan seized the Islands in 1914, governing them under a League of Nations mandate until the U.S. Navy occupied them in 1945. In 1947, the islands became part of the U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands under United Nations trusteeship. The Constitution of the Marshall Islands entered into force on May 1, 1979, at which time the parliament chose Amata Kabua to be the countryÂ’s first president. In 1983, the Marshall Islands signed a Compact of Free Association with the United States, which entered into force in 1986 (amended in 2003). Under the Compact, the country is fully sovereign in domestic and foreign affairs, but gives responsibility for defense to the United States.Kwajalein Hospital would like to assist in promoting better health through community and individual education regarding diabetes and circulatory diseases. This will be done through free lab tests to screen for these diseases. Lab tests will include a fasting lipid panel to check heart health, and a fasting blood glucose and hemoglobin A1C to check for diabetes. Lab tests will be o ered free of charge, courtesy of the Quality of Life fund. All residents and workers on Kwajalein and Roi are eligible for testing, which will be o ered during the months of May and June. No appointment is necessary, but, because these are fasting blood tests, you will need to make sure you have nothing to eat or drink for at least 8-12 hours before having your blood drawn. Blood draws will be performed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Come directly to the Hospital Lab, on the ground oor of the hospital, and sign in there. Test results, when available, will be reviewed by a physician and mailed to participants. For those who live on Ebeye, results will be sent to Ebeye hospital and distributed from there. If results are abnormal, participants will be encouraged to follow up with their physicians through their own medical insurance bene ts. Questions may be directed to Jamie Steveson, of the Hospital Lab, at 53667.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 27, 2013 David Scheivert and his boys, Caiden, 6, and Chris, 4, clean up at the golf course for Earth Day on Monday.Earth Day Cleanup effort may have sparked renewed interest in Kwajalein Public Gardens Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorKwajalein residents showed their love for Mother Nature Monday at the Earth Day Cleanup at Holmberg Fairways and the Kwajalein Public Gardens. David Scheivert and his boys, Caiden, 6, and Chris, 4, took trash bags down to holes 5 and 6 to pick up trash and debris along the fence line. Meanwhile, volunteers Jayne Cavender and Carmel Shearer lled up ve trash bags beautifying the sand trap on the backside of hole 9. Meanwhile, Jim and Eleanor Talich, faithful volunteers at the gardens, began work raking and pruning until reinforcements showed up. By 3 p.m., there was a large group of volunteers pulling weeds, raking dead leaves and hauling bags of debris out of the gardens. While the golf course has a crew that works to keep it clean, the gardens are maintained by volunteers only. A History of the Kwajalein Public Gardens The Kwajalein Public Gardens began as a hydroponic garden in the mid-1960s. It was an experimental community project started by the Martin-Zachery company. MZ supplied all the materials and heavy equipment to build two hot weather green houses that were designed to house and protect vegetables and fruit from the sun. There was also a lens well (rainwater percolates down through the coral and forms a layer of fresh water oating on top of the deeper salt water) with a 2,000 gallon capacity within the gardens area. Once the materials were purchased by MZ and the initial startup began, the gardens were operated by faithful volunteers. The original vision was to teach Marshallese how to grow food and become self sustaining. The fruits and vegetables grown were actually sold in Surfway. They included cucumbers and tomatoes that had to be hand pollinated (there were no bees on Kwajalein at the time). Besides growing food, plants were another main vision of the gardens. Some say that the original vision called for a representation of all plants in the Marshall Islands. Others disagree with this. Regardless, several native plants were grown in the gardens. When Silver City was erected, it was surrounded by only sand and coral. A booklet with the names and photos of local plants was given to residents and encouraged them to pick up plants at the garden and plant at their quarters to beautify the island. The Kwajalein botanical garden as we know it now was created in the late 1970s. It was maintained by the Building and Grounds contractor and had a fulltime employee to tend to it; their job was to maintain the garden and continue the propagation program. A chain link fence de ned the perimeter of the garden and the small building was an of ce and storage area. Funding for the garden was cut back in stages until it was no longer supported by the contract and was left for volunteers to sustain. Around 2010, that fence was taken from the garden and moved elsewhere on island. Without a perimeter, the gardens grew wild. It was around this time that there was a lack of volunteers to help with the upkeep. Gardening tools and lawnmowers had to be hauled down from Self Help and eventually the work got to be too much for the few residents who desired to keep the gardens going. The recent Earth Day Cleanup effort and interest from a few island residents have maybe started revitalization of the gardens. The Adopt-an-Area program through Community Activities could be a way to keep the gardens thriving. Talich, dedicated volunteer at the gardens, suggests that community members adopt sections of the garden, instead of taking on the whole area. If interested in adopting any area around Kwaj, contact Kim Yarnes at Community Activities, 53331. Several former and current Kwajalein residents were interviewed for this information. Many thanks to Bob Butz, David Paquin, Wendy Peacock, Bob Sholar, Sarah Stepchew and Jim Talich for their input. The Botes family rakes and bags debris at the Kwajalein Public Gardens on Earth Day.

Everyone should use recycling bins at Emon Beach.By Natasha Tomas and Shenandoah Wrobel KHS Guest Writers May 1, 1979, was the birth of the Marshallese Constitution, and thus the birth of a newly independent nation. Based on the Constitution of the United States, the document ensured the liberties of all citizens of the RMI. This year, May Day, or Constitution Day, will commemorate its 34th anniversary. In celebration of the cultural event, a series of games will take place on Ebeye for several weeks: basketball, baseball, tennis, volleyball and shing. Teams are formed based on the players’ island origin, consisting of 10-15 people of any age group. This gives Marshallese residents an opportunity to meet people from different islands. The people take a day to celebrate by hosting a parade. Both children and women take time out of their day to make a giant feast of sandwiches, chicken, rice and soda which they sell for modest prices. Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School Ri’katak student Malkie Loeak said of Constitution Day, “It is a great day for Marshallese families to come together to play and visit.” Glothelia Mijena is excited to watch Majuro’s basketball team play this year on Ebeye since this marks the rst year Ebeye will be hosting the team and other Constitution Day events. Constitution Day pays tribute to the shared values and principles that Marshallese, Americans and many other ethnicities cherish, and provides them with a chance to come together. These ideals are expressed in the Preamble of the Constitution of the RMI: “With this Constitution, we af rm our desire and right to live in peace and harmony, subscribing to the principles of democracy, sharing the aspirations of all other peoples for a free and peaceful world, and striving to do all we can to assist in achieving this goal. We extend to other peoples what we profoundly seek from them: peace, friendship, mutual understanding, and respect for our individual idealism and our common humanity.” Hourglass Reports The 25th annual Ballroom Dinner Dance is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., May 5 in the MP Room. This “silver anniversary” event is an opportunity to dress up and enjoy an evening of great music, dancing and dinner. The Kwajalein High School Stage Band, (a.k.a. “The Central Paci c’s Most Dangerous Band”) will play cool jazz, jumpin’ swing and hot Latin tunes throughout the evening. An excellent full dinner will feature kalua pork and mesquite grilled steak. The 14-member Stage Band has been a notable element of the school music program for many years. Their annual dinner dance has evolved into a showcase for their talents and hard work, enjoyed by music lovers and dancers. In the late 1980s, a dance class was planning a small party, and heard the Stage Band rehearsing for their next concert. When the band shared their music at the party, they knew only four dance songs, but were such a success that the dancers had them continue repeating those same songs throughout the evening. Since then, the band has greatly enlarged its repertoire. The group routinely learns 30-40 songs each year, beginning rehearsals in August to prepare for the dance. Band alumni have gone on to play in university jazz groups. Current members often “double” on various instruments to cover the needs of the many ensembles in which they perform. The student soloists are featured as they give authentic interpretations to the jazz classics by such greats as Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Glenn Miller and Count Basie.The band performs musical styles for swing, fox trot, cha cha, rumba, salsa and even a couple of waltzes. During the dinner dance, Cheryl Shields often nds herself reviewing dance steps for guests who have taken classes earlier in the year. Even the idea of a “dress up” event takes on a very local appearance, with dancers in tuxes and fancy dresses along side others in “island formal.”Proceeds from the dance cover the meal and decorations, and very importantly help purchase new music for the following year. Tickets are $45 per person, and are on sale until Wednesday from Cheryl and Dick Shields at 51684. Reservations for seating of parties of 4-8 are available when tickets are purchased. Whether you want to dance the night away, or sit and enjoy the sounds of this accomplished student band, don’t miss the opportunity to attend the Ballroom Dinner Dance.

8The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 27, 2013 A small crowd of about 25 people gathered on Roi for Earth Day Cleanup. Trash pickers covered several areas of the island. There was a team of divers at the Small Boat Marina pier pulling trash from the lagoon along with others walking the perimeter of Roi-Namur collecting trash. The Roi-Namur Dolphins Scuba Club sponsored this successful event. Fifty ve bags of trash were collected between the various cleanup spots, including the marina pier, oceanside by TRADEX towards Sally Point, oceanside by the Theater, lagoonside by Surf Shack and lagoonside by the pavilion. After the trash was collected from around the island, the Scuba Club hosted a really nice barbecue at the Surf Shack for all who participated. Big thanks to everyone who came out and helped make Roi-Namur an even more beautiful place. The cleanup crew from the North side of the island, Phil Roman, Bob Emmert, Conrad Nakasone, Robin Badayos and Ricky Everette, takes a well-deserved break. Roi residents collected trash from several areas of Roi-Namur as part of the Earth Day Cleanup. DJ Castle and Carol Golby Sanders dive for trash and debris at the Roi Small Boat Marina.
