3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013 Angela Mitchell, left, celebrates with friend Shelbi Rowe as they cross the finish line of the 13.04-mile race on Tuesday.Records broken at Columbus Day runBy Bob Sholar KRC Vice President Kwajalein Running Club conducted the 36th annual Columbus Day Run on the Tuesday holiday, with a 6:15 a.m. start at Namo Weto Youth Center. Nearly 100 runners and walkers participated. Eighteen runners chose the two-island-loop option, 13.04 miles, the rest doing one loop, 6.52 miles. Runners ranged in age from 7-70 years, again representing a remarkably broad swath of the islandÂ’s resident population. First nishers overall for the half marathon were Jon Jahnke and Krystal Peterson. Jahnke is KRCÂ’s president for 2013-14. For the quarter marathon it was easy striding Maj. Shawn Hebert and Stephanie Trimble over the line rst. Kevin Skinner took the Social Security Eligible division for the half marathon and John Sova took the same for the quarter marathon. Both lowered their SSE division records; in SkinnerÂ’s case, by almost 30 minutes! SkinnerÂ’s time of 1 hour, 54 minutes and 59 seconds, put him in a nishing cluster that included some of the islandÂ’s best male distance runners: Jahnke, Ben Bartyzel and Brent Peterson; one of whom is roughly half SkinnerÂ’s age. You have to guess. Our U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll leadership was prominent. Five of the top 15 male masters division nishers at 6.52 miles were, in order: Chief Warrant Of cer 4 George Gansel, Col. Nestor Sadler, Chief Warrant Of cer 3 Shawn Carpenter, Sgt, Maj. Roderick Prioleau, Maj. Luke Koerschner and Lt. Col. Dean Wiley. Hoooah! Sgt. Geraldine Turituri was also part of the quarter marathon womenÂ’s nishers. Also of note were performances by Hebert in the 6.52 mile open section and Maj. Matt SovaÂ’s in the 13.04 mile open. The two course-side water stations were staffed by local Boy Scout Troop 314 members, led by Scout Leader Glen McClellan. The Scouts left their overnight campout to arrive at stations in the dark to support the early morning run. At noon, the runners and walkers gathered at Emon Beach Main Pavilion for a holiday afternoon barbecue, followed by the presentation of certi cates and custom T-shirts designed by Kathy Skinner.

4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013 Photos by Jordan VinsonSgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau competes in the fourth annual Fire Muster obstacle course challenge Oct. 12Kwajalein Fire Department engages Kwaj community with array of fire safety events By Sheila Gideon Managing Editor Fire Prevention Week is about one thing according to Kwajalein Fire Department Chief Tony Flowers: education. It is an opportunity to bring the whole community together to learn rsthand about re safety and prevention. “It gets them involved so they can see that it’s fun,” Flowers commented. Fire safety events help the kids to understand rsthand what it is re ghters do and exhibits their availability to the community, he said. This year’s public re safety education was a week-long campaign that began with a re safety movie viewing at the Richardson Theater Oct. 6. Sparky the Fire Dog, Fire Pup and local re ghters had lunch at the Exchange Food Court Oct. 7 with island children. During the week, the re ghters visited George Seitz Elementary School classes and the Child Development Center, educating the children in re safety practices. Fire Prevention Week ended in a nale at the Richardson Theater Oct. 12. The main attraction at the nale was the fourth annual Fire Muster obstacle course for teens and the workforce at large. Teams of four competed for the best time on a course that included dressing in re boots and overalls, trudging through a pool of water, passing buckets of water to one another, carrying a ladder through cones, and nally, connecting a re hose and knocking down a target with water spray. Only three teen teams competed, and one judge commented on team YOLOers performance saying, “Their drive to win was outstanding.” Competition was erce among the ve workforce teams. Last year’s champs, team “Super Soakers,” didn’t even bring the trophy to the competition they were so con dent they would win again. Unfortunately for them, “Team Name Pending” out-performed them by over 30 seconds on the course, and claimed victory this year. Other events at the nale included CPR training, re extinguisher training, an in atable Fire House, and a smoke detector education table. There was also a craft table where kids could color re safety books, pick up a plastic re hat, or get a re safety temporary tattoo. Fire Inspector Sherry Pinnell explains how to properly use a variety of fire extinguishers. “The Super Soakers” dash through the course toward the final leg of the race. Ben Tavutavuwale, left, and Jared Wase of “Class of 2016” fight their way out of the pool at the beginning of the fire muster race.

Unfortunately, the system experienced an internal burnout that contaminated the whole system, along with several other mechanical failures. The repair required the replacement of two compressors and extensive system ushes. Due to the size of the building and amount of equipment, it was a very lengthy process. Chillers, such as those in the Reef BQ, are much more complex systems than the AC systems installed in housing. The installa on of a component such as this requires signi cant manpower and constant monitoring upon replacement. AC&R was able to nish the installa on Oct. 10. Public Works Department would like to apologize for the inconvenience while repairs were underway. Public Works understands the importance of air condi oning on Kwajalein, and we have increased our focus in the last twelve months. Our AC&R department works hard every day to meet your needs. Thank you, Thomas Lester, Public Works Manager


7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013 Birds play an important role in the traditional lives of the Marshallese people. Not only are they a source of food, birds also provide information that Marshallese use when fishing, sailing or traveling on long voyages. Golden plovers, which nest in Alaska, travel through the Marshall Islands in late fall to points south and west. This migration would correspond to the annual ocean voyages that the kings or Iroijs would make to the northern atolls to collect the winter crop of arrowroot. Upon the return voyage in the spring, the Iroijs and his seafarers would meet the golden plovers on their return migration to Alaska. Hence the appearance and disappearance of the plovers are associated with the changing seasons. “Lakeeketo” is a Marshallese idiom referring to the plovers flying west and with this the oncoming of strong winds and rough seas. “Lakeeketak” refers to the plovers flying east, signaling light winds and calm seas.
