3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 18, 2013 Acting U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander, Lt. Col. Dean Wiley, handed out certificates of thanks to the eight members of the Student Action Council at the final meeting of the year on Wednesday evening in the Coconut Room. The certificates thanked the volunteers for their “professionalism and commitment to the children of the Kwajalein School System. Your steadfast service as a school board member reflects great credit upon yourself and the United States Army Kwajalein Atoll.” USAKA School Evaluator, Ray Drefus, said the certificates were just a “small token of the appreciation for what you do.” Members recognized were Heather Baldy, Rebecca Bradley, Lynx McClellan (shown left), Michelle Novotny, Terry Lorok, Brad Walker, Henry McElreath and John Klinger.Are you a resilient person?You can be, if you learn key characteristicsBy Ray Drefus USAKA Master Resilience TrainerResilience is the human capacity to withstand stress and setbacks. Psychologists have long recognized the capabilities of humans to adapt and overcome such obstacles in life. Individuals are able to rebuild their lives even after experiencing the most devastating circumstances life can offer. Being a resilient person doesn’t mean going through life without experiencing stress and pain. People feel grief, sadness, anger and a full range of other emotions after adversity and loss. The road to resilience lies in working through the emotions and effects of these painful events. Resilience is not necessarily something that you’re born with; it can be learned. Normally, resilience develops as people grow and gain knowledge, as well as more advanced thinking and selfmanagement skills. Supportive relationships with parents, peers, clergy and health care providers help people cope with the inevitable bumps in life and foster resilience. It is found in a variety of behaviors, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed across the life span.Some key characteristics of resilience: • Self-awareness : Resilient people are aware of their challenges and emotional reactions. In order to manage emotions, it is essential to understand what is causing them and why. By remaining aware, resilient people can maintain control of the situation and think of new ways to tackle their challenges. • An understanding that setbacks are part of life : Life is full of challenges that you cannot avoid. You must remain open, exible and willing to adapt to change. • An internal locus of control : Do you control your own life or do you blame outside sources for problems? Generally, resilient people tend to have what we know as an internal locus of control. They believe their own actions will affect the outcome of an event. Of course, some factors are outside of their control (i.e. natural disasters). We may be able to blame some setbacks on external causes, but resilient people feel they have the power to make choices that will affect the situations and move forward. • Strong problem solving skills : When challenges emerge, resilient people are able to see a solution that will lead to a positive outcome. Others sometimes develop a type of “tunnel vision” and fail to note critical details or take advantages of opportunities. Resilient individuals are able to calmly and rationally look at the problem and visualize a successful solution.• Having strong social connections : It is extremely important to have people who can offer trusting support. Honest and frank dialogue about challenges you are facing can be an excellent way to gain a new perspective from your social network of trusted friends and family.• Identifying as a survivor, not a victim : If you are living, then you are a survivor. Avoid thinking like a victim of circumstance and instead look for ways to resolve the challenges you are facing. • Being able to ask for help : It is essential to know when to ask for help. During challenging times, people can bene t from the help of psychologists and counselors who are trained to deal with these types of challenges, as well as family, friends and colleagues.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 18, 2013 Photos by Melissa Engelhard The U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Environmental Standards require that proposed remedial activities be described in a Document of Environmental Protection. The Standards also provide regulatory agencies and the public opportunities to review and comment on a Draft DEP. The Draft DEP, January 2013, provides detailed information related to the proposed remedial actions at these sites. The DEP includes Remediation Plans for the USAKA Compliance Cleanup Program’s next steps to cleanup soil and groundwater contamination from fuel releases at the Kwajalein Tank Farm and the Roi-Namur Petroleum, Oil, and Lubricant sites. The public is invited to review and comment on this Draft DEP. Copies of the Draft DEP and the USAKA Environmental Standards are available for review at the RMI EPA Of ces on Majuro and Ebeye, the Grace Sherwood Library on Kwajalein and the Roi-Namur Library. Computer users with internet access can view this information on the USAKA IRP website: Questions regarding the Draft DEP can be directed by phone to the USAKA Public Affairs Of ce, 805-355-1404. Written comments can be provided by: 1) Comment boxes located at the RMI EPA Of ces in Majuro and Ebeye, the Grace Sherwood Library on Kwajalein, or the Roi-Namur Library, 2) Through the comment portal under the Additional Documents portion of the site, 3) E-mail to or 4) Mail to WHPaci c, Inc.; Attn: Draft Document of Environmental Protection (DEP-12-001-0) Comments; APO, AP 96555.

USAKA Draft Document of Environmental Protection for Remediation Kwajalein Atoll was treated to a celestial spectacle on May 10, when a partial eclipse was visible during the lunch hour. It wa s known as an annular solar eclipse. Unlike a total solar eclipse, which essentially turns day into night, an annular eclipse jus t dims the sunlight. There was a noticeable temperature drop while out riding your bike, which made for an unusually “cool” (for Kwajalein ) hour in the afternoon. The eclipse was visible as a “ring of fire” to other locations around the world, including Australia. Th e above photo shows the changes in the sun as the moon crosses in front of it from the Kwajalein perspective.Kwajalein Atoll sees partial eclipse

The ‘Mini’ was a 500-yard swim, 10-mile bike and 2-mile run. Despite the ‘Mini’ moniker, this is a very long way, especially for rst grade girls, Ava Moore and Tessa Delisio, the youngest solo contestants. The wind was howling at 20+ knots, making for challenging biking for all, especially for the youngest on 20-inch wheels. Many repeat participants were off their best marks due to poor bike conditions. First across the nish line was longtime event veteran Sam Jahnke in 57 minutes and 23 seconds, followed by classmate David Sholar in 57:56. This was Jahnke’s rst win. For the ladies, it was Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School teacher Kristen Hosek in 1:02:27, followed by eighth-grader Colleen Furgeson in 1:13:48. Furgeson is living proof of what Kwajalein Swim Team can do for you.First team nishers were Claire Stepchew and TDY former resident Tom Sieja, in 1:08:27. The rst allkid George Seitz Elementary School student team of Jenna Lundberg and Aiden Mitchell nished in 1:17:55.One of the more pleasing aspects of the team section is seeing entire families form teams. Everyone does a little something in varying combinations over the three segments. This year, we had full family teams by the Aljures, Botes, Bowers, Breens, Cardillos, Delisios, Halls, Parkers, Petersons, Southers and Winklers. There were also several all-sibling and parentchild teams.The ‘Mini’ is also a good way for adults to try out an introductory triathlon. Over several years, Will Smith has worked a dozen shifts doing various race time jobs. This year, Smith was traveling the course for the rst time, in 1:36:04.Several solo boys are members of Boy Scout Troop 314, who used the event to earn the challenging Personal Fitness Merit Badge.

11The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, May 18, 2013 Kwajalein Drinking Water Standard ViolationThe Drinking Water Treatment Document of Environmental Protection requires public noti cation when drinking water standards are violated. The DEP requires 95 percent of monthly samples to have a combined lter turbidity reading of less than 0.3 Nephelometric Turbidity Units. During the month of April, approximately 92 percent of samples were below 0.3 NTU. Turbidity is the cloudiness or haziness of a liquid caused by individual particles that are generally invisible to the naked eye. During the dry season, USAKA becomes dependent upon groundwater (lens well) resources which tend to have high chloride content and can lead to increased turbidity. High turbidity can sometimes indicate increased bacteria levels. However, weekly sampling of the distribution system has shown no increase in bacteria levels. Also, all groundwater during the month of April was treated through a Reverse Osmosis unit. For these reasons, there is no threat to public health or the environment as a result of this turbidity exceedance. If you have any questions, contact the environmental department at 51134.Mo eo/ko ikkijeen Dren in Idak eo ion KwajaleinKamelele eo ikkijeen jokjok in an jerbal Dren in Idak iumin (ak Document eo jen obiij eo an Environmental Protection ej komelet naan in karon jukjuk in bed elane jokjok kein emoj ella jen i im jab loori.
