It included songs such as Monster Mash,Ž  riller,Ž Munsters eme,Ž I Put A Spell On YouŽ and Bad Moon Rising.Ž ere was no inappropriate language used in any of the songs„they are from a radio edit Halloween CD. No patrons complained about the volume or the music at the event. In the future, Community Activities can look at either turning the music down or eliminating it completely. I strongly object to Community Activities holding a Day of the Dead celebration at the bar. is is a day that some Mexicans use to honor and remember their deceased loved ones. It is not a celebration. We modeled much of what we did o of the festivals and parades that they do in Spain before going to the cemetery. Just like with Cinco de Mayo, Christmas, Mardi Gras or any of the other holidays we plan events for, we try to balance the traditions into the celebration. A solution for the future would be to hold the event at a di erent location, with input from those who have celebrated in the past.By Ray Drefus USAG-KA Master Resilience Trainer Alcoholics Anonymous is a worldwide fellowship of men and women who help each other stop drinking and maintain sobriety. AA started in 1935 and is successful in part because of the anonymity of the membership along with the general approach of recovering alcoholics helping other problem drinkers to stop drinking by sharing drinking and recovery experiences and hope for continued sobriety with each other. You do not have to stop drinking in order to participate in AA meetings—just have a desire to stop drinking. AA also has many publications to help achieve sobriety, including “Alcoholics Anonymous,” also known as the “Big Book.” Alcoholism is a serious and progressive disease impacting individuals, families, the workforce and whole communities. If you are wondering if you are an alcoholic, there is a pamphlet with twelve questions only you can answer that may help in diagnosis; it is available by calling 51157. Alcoholism cannot be cured, but can be arrested. With continued support and work on the “Twelve Steps” of AA, an alcoholic can refrain from drinking. AA is resuming meetings on Kwajalein. If you were a member of AA in the past, or think you have a problem with alcohol, we welcome your participation in our weekly meetings at 7 p.m., every Thursday, at the Religious Education Building library on the second oor. Remember, your participation in these meetings is totally con dential and your attendance will not affect your employment. People who think they have a drinking problem are welcome to attend any AA meeting. They become members simply by deciding they are members. AA is autonomous and is not sponsored by any organization. For more information, call 51157 after 5 p.m. AA meetings available to support community Thumbs up! ... to Tina and John Legere, Tennille DeMello, Stan Edwards and Paulette Cappellini, Elaine Hahn and helpers for putting on the awesome Haunted House on Halloween.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 46 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 Photo courtesy of Jack NiedenthalJack Niedenthal, director of the film “Jilel: The Calling of the Shell,” meets with Ebeye residents before a showing of the film on Ebeye last weekend.Marshallese movie entertains and delivers powerful message about global warmingBy Sheila Gideon Managing EditorKwajalein residents were treated to a showing of a Microwave Films of the Marshall Islands movie last weekend. Film director Jack Niedenthal arranged to have his Marshallese lm shown on Kwajalein Nov. 8 and on Ebeye Sunday through Tuesday in the evenings. This was the rst time any of Niedenthal’s lms were shown on either island. The lm was entertaining, but also had a powerful underlying message regarding climate change and its effect on the Marshall Islands. “Jilel: The Calling of the Shell” was lmed in Marshallese with English subtitles. The story is about a young girl, Molina, who inherits a Jilel, or shell heirloom, from her bubu (grandmother). Her bubu warns her that the shell has great powers. The shell is stolen by the girl’s brother, Ketowate, and his friend, Samson. They sell the shell for a few cigarettes. That is when the great power of the shell is exposed. As the shell gets passed along from person to person, each experiences bad luck that runs from broken down cars, electricity issues to dead cell phone batteries. When Molina discovers what her brother has done, she demands he nd it. Ketowate quickly realizes the mistake he made and goes on a mission to nd the shell. He hits a dead end and the shell is lost. But, because it is a magical shell, it nds its way back to Molina. In a dream, her bubu tells her what to do with it—she sends it to the President of the United States with a note about how her islands are being washed away by king tides due to climate change and asks for help. When the shell arrives in the U.S., its curse continues, wiping out all the power in the country. While “Jilel” is just a fairy tale, Niedenthal combined traditional Marshallese customs with ction in order to deliver his message about climate change and what it is doing to the Marshall Islands. “Jilel” not only means “shell;” it can also be interpreted as a calling or warning. He combined these two ideas to create the fairy tale of the shell with powers. In the lm, waves are shown crashing into graveyards and washing away headstones. This was not part of the fairy tale—this is really happening in the Marshall Islands.“Jilel” ends with an emotionally powerful poetry reading by Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner entitled “Tell Them.” Jetnil-Kijiner recently made headlines when she read her poem “Dear Matefele Peinem” at the United Nations Climate Summit in September. The poem was to her newborn daughter with the message that something drastic needs to be done to stop global warming and save the Marshall Islands—the islands that her daughter deserves to know and grow up on. Her message tied in to the same one Neidenthal portrays in “Jilel.” One of the main reasons Niedenthal wanted to make this lm, he said, was to change the idea of combating climate change from discussion to action. This is Microwave Films’ fth feature lm. “Jilel” took two years to make, with work done mostly on the weekends. It was lmed entirely on Majuro, with just a short scene lmed in Hawaii. They do not get grants or nancial aid to make these lms. They recoup the cost and pay the actors with DVD sales; however, lms are not put on DVD until they have made their rounds at lm festivals. All the money made from the rst three lms was donated to Majuro Cooperative School. Niedenthal said the lms are not about making money; it is a community endeavor and the messages in the lms are what are important. And while “Jilel” certainly sends out a powerful message, Niedenthal also spent some time developing a short lm just for fun. As a bonus, a second lm, “Zori,” was shared at each showing. The lm, only nine minutes long, featured only three actors—one was Niedenthal’s niece, and another his nephew. In fact, all of Niedenthal’s family, including his ve children, act or sing in his lms. The lm was a delightful story about a boy who would do anything for some ice cream. His bubu orders him to go out and pick up trash to earn his treat. He was also told not to come back without his other zori, or ip op, which had been carried away by a dog overnight. The boy trudges along, picking up trash and during his effort, nds a zori that was thrown away. Upon returning with bags full of trash and ip ops on both feet, the boy earns his ice cream treat. “Zori” was shown at both the Guam and Hawaii International Film Festivals.


4The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 46 Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 USAG-KA Soldiers pause for a group photo following the 2014 Veterans Day Ceremony Tuesday at the flag poles.Veterans are honored, remembered for their sacrifices and dedication to U.S.Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorOn the 11th day of the 11th month of each year, the U.S. Army GarrisonKwajalein Atoll community and distinguished guests gather at the ag poles to pay respects for our country’s brave servicemembers, past and present. Chief Warrant Of cer 4 William Kilgore acted as the master of ceremonies. He welcomed Kwajalein’s veterans and distinguished guests. Kilgore brie y explained the history of how Veterans Day originated. “On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, silence fell over the battle elds of Europe. After four years of carnage and devastation, all ghting stopped; World War II, ‘the war to end all wars,’ was over. One year later, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 Armistice Day; a day to celebrate the end of the war and honor those who fought. In 1954, Armistice Day was re-designated Veterans Day to honor all veterans living and dead, whether they served during war or peace.” Hands over hearts, or standing at salute, the audience listened to the national anthems of the Republic of the Marshall Islands and the United States played by the Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School band, under the direction of Kyle Miller. The Invocation was read aloud by Fr. Victor Langhans. “We are ever mindful of the costs paid for the liberties that we possess,” he said. “We ask that you be with us as we honor the members of the Armed Forces who have served in the past and who continue to serve us in our pursuit of liberty, freedom and peace.” Kilgore introduced the guest speaker for the ceremony and read aloud part of his biography. Thomas Armbruster was sworn in as U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Marshall Islands on Aug. 16, 2012. He has spent a large part of his career working as a diplomat overseas. Armbruster has a bachelor’s degree from McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, a master’s degree in con ict resolution from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, and a master’s degree from the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. He is married to Katherine Chandler Armbruster, and they have two children, Bryan and Kalia, who grew up in the Foreign Service. Armbruster thanked the band and U.S. Navy Seabees for their participation in the ceremony that

Marcus Weiland lays a wreath at the base of the 2nd Raider Battalion Memorial to honor all active duty servicemembers.morning. He thanked USAG-KA Garrison Commander Col. Nestor Sadler and USAG-KA Deputy Commander Jenifer Peterson for inviting him back for the ceremony this year. He took a moment to recognize the small Japanese delegation visiting to recover remains of their compatriots on Enniburr on behalf of their loved ones and country. “I wish them well and success on their mission,” he said. “As on all Veterans Days, we can really only appreciate, thank and tip our hats to the veterans. We can never repay the debt in full and we can never understand the measure of sacri ce in full.” Armbruster asked all veterans and their families to rise for recognition. Armbruster reminded the audience of the brave men and women who sacri ced their lives right here on Kwajalein Atoll. “We salute the Marshallese scouts, and the many, many Marshallese serving in uniform today all over the world. We remember Solomon Sam who died in Iraq. We thank all the Marshallese for their service.”“Today is Veterans Day—plural,” Armbruster continued. “Inclusive of all eras and con icts. Inclusive of each and every service and each and every vet. … Honoring vets is not just remembering them, but remembering why they signed up. They say every Soldier ghts for the Soldier to their left and right of them. But, every Soldier signs up alone. They sign up for freedom, democracy, the rights of individuals and all the liberties that we share. So, it is up to us to vote, exercise our free speech, contribute to our communities and to make our union strong. … To honor the service and sacri ce of veterans, we can nd our own small ways to serve.”Ian Galbraith, Humberto A. Jones and Michael McClellan, members of Kwajalein Boy Scout Troop 314, came forward to hand off the wreaths for the traditional laying of the wreaths ceremony. The ceremony honors fallen comrades—those who answered their nation’s call and literally gave all. Armbruster was joined by Peterson, U.S. Veteran Ray Drefus and Reagan Test Site NCOIC Master Sgt. Marcus Weiland. Wreaths were placed at the base of the Operation Flintlock memorial, in front of the U.S. and RMI national colors and in front of the 2nd Raider Battalion memorial, while the KHS band played “Amazing Grace.” The ceremony ended with a threevolley salute by the ri e squad consisting of members of the U.S. Navy Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133, and the playing of “Taps” by KHS junior Wyatt Jones.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 46 Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 $16,000 raised at YYWC auction for Micronesia, RMI education assistanceArticle and photo by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorGoing once, going twice, sold! A Silent Basket Auction was hosted by the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room Sunday evening. Kwajalein residents dressed to impress—dusting off their suits, fancy dresses and heels—on the rare occasion to dress up and open their wallets for the annual charity event. Forty ve baskets, along with three live auction items and several raf e prizes were donated by Kwajalein residents, all in the hopes to fundraise money for education in Micronesia and the Marshall Islands. At the end of the evening, winning bids were totaled and a whopping $16,000 was raised. The money will be passed along to the YYWC’s Education Assistance Committee, who will distribute the funds to various schools in need in Micronesia and the Marshall Islands at the end of the school year. With recent turnover on the island, the YYWC board is pretty empty; there is only a treasurer assigned. While this makes planning a massive event like the Basket Auction challenging, it sure didn’t slow down Angela Ryon— the chair for this year’s event. This was Ryon’s rst year organizing the event and she began the work last year, beginning with locking in donations. “You start by getting people excited about donating,” Ryon said. She hit up people who donated from previous years, like John Breen, but also drummed up some new donations like Heather Miller’s Bread of the Month basket. Ryon’s work didn’t stop there. Once she had baskets committed, they were dropped off at her home. At that point, she worked on writing up descriptions for all the baskets—45 in total this year. Coordinating tables, decorations, food and beverages for the event was time consuming and club volunteers were valuable during that time. All the hard work paid off, and for a good cause. “All proceeds from tonight’s event will be put towards educational grants for children in Micronesia and the Marshall Islands,” Ryon explained. That money will help purchase books, school desks, computers or even help build new classrooms. And while this event is really about education assistance, it is also an opportunity for Kwajalein residents to score some offisland swag. The Silent Auction began at 7 p.m. and ended promptly at 9 p.m. Last minute bids, and some strong defensive strategies, locked in impressive numbers this year. Every year there are a few baskets that Raffle prizes include a three-panel sunset photo, homebrews, two framed photographs and a large “I Eat Cake in Bed” wooden sign. Christine Dejongh marks down a bid during the Silent Auction hosted by the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room Sunday. All proceeds from the auction will go towards education assistance in Micronesia and the Marshall Islands.

All proceeds will benefit education in Micronesia and the Marshall Islands.stand out and cause a bidding war throughout the evening. The highest bid this year was $835 for a steak dinner for eight cooked by Song Banducci. Other popular baskets included photo packages by Sarah Dahl and Julie Savage, a sailing cruise aboard the Cherokee by Paul McGrew, a 32-inch TV with movies from the Robinsons, goodies from Trader Joe’s from DeDe Hall, a bicycle quilt made by Kathy Skinner and the Bread of the Month Basket by Miller. Each went for around $300. The Silent Auction was just the beginning of the night’s events. The live auction is usually a fastpaced, rival-inducing show. This year, auctioneer Al Robinson wasn’t messing around. Knowing what these items usually go for each year, he started the bids out high, and while only a few bidders jumped at the chance to score the prize, their contributions were generous. Since Miller’s bread basket was so popular during the Silent Auction, she decided to auction off a sample basket of breads during the live auction, scoring $210 from the hard-working Ryon. Banducci offered up another dinner—this one the signature Thai meal she donates each year. The Legeres and six of their friends will be enjoying that dining experience for the price of $1,050. A steak dinner for eight prepared by Deb Douthat brought in $1,250 from the Delisios and friends. And Robinson must have known that his wife wanted the custom-stitched Kwajalein Running Club T-shirt quilt donated by Cindy Westhoff. Bidding started at $700 and Sonya won it for $800. The raf e was equally as exciting. Tickets were entered for the chance to win up to seven items including two “Kwaj Rocks” given by an anonymous donor, a three-panel sunset photo donated by Mac McGuire, an underwater anemone print donated by Brandi Mueller, a framed photo by Breen, homebrew by the Lakes and a wooden “I Eat Cake in Bed” sign donated by Skinner. Ray Drefus was a lucky guy, winning two of the prizes. A second-chance raf e was announced and one ticket was pulled from each basket, winning T-shirts and mystery prizes from Bill’s Dive and Bike Shop. As a special treat this year, the auction offered live music from “Poke Chops and the Other White Meat.” They are a blues and jazz band that was own to Kwajalein for entertainment by the Quality of Life Fund. Their fun, upbeat music brought numerous swing dancing couples onto the dance oor. The next YYWC event will be the Kaleidoscope of Music in January. This is another opportunity to support the YYWC’s mission to provide educational assistance in the RMI and Micronesia.

U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll hosted the annual event, which offers Republic of the Marshall Islands vendors an opportunity to sell their handicrafts, sh, fruit, seafood and more to eager USAG-KA shoppers. The event is mutually bene cial, offering Marshallese vendors a venue to promote their products, and giving USAG-KA residents an opportunity to experience Marshallese culture. USAG-KA Director of Host Nation Activities, Maj. Matt Sova, welcomed everyone to the trade fair that morning. “I appreciate all the support and effort from everyone that helped to put this together,” Sova said. He introduced the Protestant Chaplain, Pastor Kevin Wilson, who blessed the trade fair with a prayer. Next, USAG-KA Deputy Commander, Jenifer Peterson, thanked everyone who helped orchestrate the trade fair, whether it was delivering fruit, sh and handicrafts or helping to coordinate vendors from the outer islands to Kwajalein. Lastly, Laban Konelios, an of cial with the Marshall Islands Ministry of Resources and Development, thanked USAG-KA command. “It gives me USAG-KA resident Christina Sylvester purchases fruit at the Marshallese Trade Fair Monday.

I’d also wish to recognize the unwavering assistance of Col. Nestor Sadler and our counterparts here on Kwajalein—namely Mr. Michael Sakaio and Mr. Lanny Kabua—for the excellent work witnessed since the moment we arrived here. Without your cooperation it would be virtually impossible to succeed at these trade fairs. Kommol tata.” Konelios continued, declaring that over the next year, the Ministry of Resources and Development will be working to formulate the RMI’s rst-ever national export strategy policy which aims to promote Marshallese products domestically as well as internationally and will further assist the RMI in strengthening its export capacity. “I wish to everyone a successful trade fair,” Konelios said, “and encourage all to enjoy the unique crafts of our islands, delicious fruits and fresh sh brought across the sea.” With that, the doors to the CRC Gym were opened and shoppers swarmed the 50 or so tables inside. They were greeted with arrangements of intricately woven baskets, wall hangings, purses, hats, mats and ornaments. There was jewelry galore and colorful, woven owers. Wood carvings of seahorses, dolphins, coconut crabs, sharks and sh lled a table as you walked inside. Japanese glass shing balls, T-shirts and Marshallese books were also for sale. While the handicrafts were impressive and abundant, the tables covered in fruit were the popular sale that morning. Bags of Kosraean tangerines were snatched up along with bananas, bread fruit, plantains, papayas and gourds. Outside, shoppers waited patiently in the hot sun for the opportunity to purchase yellow n tuna, octopus, marlin, wahoo and an assortment of sh jerky. The wait was worth it—not just for the sake of your taste buds, but because each sale contributed toward another successful Marshallese Trade Fair. An assortment of Marshallese handicrafts are available to shoppers at the Marshallese Trade Fair in the CRC Gym Monday.


10The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 46 Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorThe Kwajalein Public Garden began as a hydroponic garden in the mid-1960s. Since that time, various groups and individuals have stepped up to maintain the area. Because people often come and go on Kwajalein, the number of volunteers uctuates. A recent surge of interest to improve the garden led to a communitywide cleanup effort Nov. 7. The effort was led by the new U.S. Army Garrison-Kwajalein Atoll Aviation Of cer, Chief Warrant Of cer 4 William Kilgore, and longtime Kwajalein residents Jim and Eleanor Talich. When Kilgore arrived on island four months ago, he was given a tour of the island. When he passed the garden, he saw the sign set back, covered in brush. He wondered why such a beautiful area of the island was being overlooked. After digging up some information, he found out there were only a few people dedicating their time to keeping the garden cleaned up. With so much potential, Kilgore began formulating a plan to increase volunteers and make the garden a usable part of the island for the community. His rst instinct was to involve USAG-KA command. USAG-KA Commander Col. Nestor Sadler was supportive and Kilgore put plans in place for a cleanup day and rededication of the garden. “When I found out I wasn’t alone in having a desire to improve the [garden], I found out a lot of information from Jim [Talich]. He and his wife Eleanor have been back here off and on for the past 20 years dedicating a lot of their free time to improving the garden. But, it’s an inundating task for one person,” Kilgore said. The garden is more than three acres. “It has a lot of history and a lot of beauty. But, that beauty can’t be preserved by just a couple people. It takes a community effort to keep it up.” “My vision for today [cleanup day] was to create a more aesthetically pleasing look as you drive by on the road, so people can see that there are improvements going on, and maybe pique their interest to come in here and walk around, and maybe put in a little work themselves,” Kilgore said. His vision for the future is to spread out the responsibility of keeping the garden clean by incorporating an Adopt-an-Area program. People or groups could adopt sections of the garden—keeping the cleanup of the garden manageable by spreading out the workload. Kilgore already has interest from a group at the air eld to revive the herb and vegetable area of the garden. There are a lot of groups required to give back to their community, like the Boy Scouts or service hours at Kwajalein Schools; the garden is just one more place where they can do that with tangi-Kwajalein Garden ge ing facelift, volunteers neededble results. “Once you get people to adopt an area, when they come out here to do their project, they’ll end up having a nice place to sit and rest, or even hit Coral Sands and go for a swim afterward.” Talich has lived on Kwajalein off and on for 20 years, beginning with his rst tour in 1968. He is familiar with Kwajalein history and knows that Coral Sands beach was an important battle site during Operation Flintlock in 1944 during World War II. The intent is to not only clean up the garden, but to connect it somehow to the Coral Sands beach area. “I think it’s appropriate that we have a place set aside that is something special for veterans,” Talich said. Talich is optimistic about the project. After an initial surge of effort to get the grounds cleaned up, maintenance should be rather easy, he said. And the bene ts to the community are a long list. It can be a learning experience for the schools. It can be a place to grow plants and possibly donate some to Ebeye. It can also be a venue for community events. In 2008, a Valentine’s Day dinner was held at the garden. “Just the satisfaction of having something out here that’s peaceful and beautiful is bene cial,” Talich said. There will be a rededication of the garden sometime this month, once the new sign is nished. In the meantime, volunteers for cleanup are needed and encouraged. All levels of knowledge of gardening are welcome. The Talichs are available to give tours and educate volunteers. Now that Kilgore is up to speed, he is also available as a resource.

11The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 46 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 Learning to cope when quitting tobaccoBy Marion Ruffing Employee Assistance ProgramThe best way to stay quit is to not use tobacco. Thinking you can steal a drag once in a while and still be tobacco-free doesn’t work. Giving into nicotine cravings puts you at risk for starting tobacco use regularly again. But, if you fall off the wagon once or twice, or a half dozen times, don’t give up. One slip-up is not a failure. In fact, setbacks are a normal part of the quitting process. The more you try, the greater your chances of quitting for good. Make a “quit plan.” What inspired you to quit in the rst place? Write down the reasons you want to remain tobacco free. You may discover even more reasons after you’ve quit for a few weeks, such as: • You can now take a deep breath without hacking and coughing. • You can do your physical exercise without losing your breath. • Your hands and feet aren’t freezing cold anymore. • You can smell and taste your food better. • You may feel proud for bettering yourself, for your own sake and for your loved ones. How do you cope if you slip up? Most people like to do something physical when a nicotine craving hits– take a walk, do some exercises, breathe deeply. Other ideas to ght cravings include: • Drink water. This not only gives you something to do, it changes the taste in your mouth. Water is best because it likely will not make you think of smoking the way coffee, beer or a soda might. If plain water is too boring for you, add a twist of lemon or a avor. • Brush your teeth. This also changes the taste in your mouth. If you can’t brush right away, pop a breath mint or use a breath freshener. Have your teeth cleaned once you put the nicotine down. • Eat a healthy snack. Got the munchies? Don’t let your sweet tooth go wild. Stock up on some healthy snacks like nuts, whole wheat crackers, raisins, baby carrots or celery, and light buttered popcorn to nibble on. You also can carry gum, cinnamon sticks, mints, lollipops or hard candy for when you’re on the go and a nicotine craving hits. • Chew on a straw or toothpick. • Keep your hands busy. If you miss the feeling of having a cigarette in your hand, play with a pen, straw, rubber band, small ball or paper clip. • Take a smoke-free break. If you can get away, take a short break and walk around the building, take some deep breaths (clean, smoke-free air!) or review your quit plan. If nicotine cravings become frequent, review the triggers part of your quit plan. Stay away from as many of these triggers as possible. Whenever you resist the urge to smoke or chew, pat yourself on the back. Just saying to yourself, “Yes, I did it!” can give you a boost. Imagine this scene: You just quit tobacco and you’re meeting your buddies at the Ocean View Club. As a joke, one of your buddies lights up and blows smoke right in your face. Now you’re annoyed with your friend, but also craving a cigarette like crazy! Dealing with social situations without smoking or chewing is going to test your willpower. But, you can handle it. Here are some tips: • Find a way to say, “No!” In your quit plan, you should write down how to decline the offer to smoke or chew. Use those lines now. Try not to sound like you’re dying for a cigarette or dip, or people may keep pushing them on you.• Have an escape plan if a situation becomes too hard. • Avoid alcohol. Most tobacco users strongly link alcohol with smoking or chewing. Alcohol also lowers your willpower. Instead, have some juice, water or a soft drink. • At work, quit going to the smoke pit when you’re taking a break.November is the month of the Great American SmokeOut. It’s your time.

12The Kwajalein Hourglass The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 46 Saturday, Nov. 15, 2014 Important information about your drinking waterMeck drinking water Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) MCL violationThe Meck water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this incident was not an emergency, you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing and have done to correct this situation. Environmental, Safety and Health routinely monitors for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results from the fourth quarter of scal year 2014 show that our system exceeds the standard, or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for the TTHM locational running annual average (LRAA). The standard, or MCL, for the TTHM LRAA is 0.080 mg/L. It is determined by averaging the results of samples collected at each sampling location for the past 12 months. The level of TTHM averaged at one of our system’s locations for scal year 2014 was 0.083 mg/L. What should I do? • There is nothing you need to do. You do not need to boil your water or take other corrective actions. If a situation arises where the water is no longer safe to drink, you will be noti ed within 24 hours. • If you have a severely compromised immune system, are pregnant, or are elderly, you may be at increased risk and should seek advice from your health care providers about drinking this water. What does this mean? This is not an emergency. If it had been an emergency, you would have been noti ed within 24 hours.TTHM are four volatile organic chemicals which form when disinfectants, such as chlorine, react with natural organic matter in the water. Potential health effects from long term (that is, many years) consumption of water with elevated levels of TTHM include liver and kidney problems or increased risk of cancer. However, potential short term exposure by healthy adults has not been shown to lead to adverse health effects. Potential exposures to Meck personnel can be considered short term due to the limited time the MCL has been exceeded.What is being done?A Granular Activated Carbon lter system was installed and became operational on Meck in September 2014. The GAC lter system treats the entire Meck drinking water supply to remove those naturally occurring organic compounds before the water is disinfected with chlorine, effectively reducing the resulting TTHMs to minimal levels. We, therefore, anticipate resolving the problem during the rst quarter of scal year 2015. Recent test results have veri ed the effectiveness of the GAC system.If you have any questions, please contact Rachael Harris, KRS ES&H, at 50506.Melele ko raurok kin dren in idraak eo ilo meik Jonan Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM) ilo dren in idraak eo ilo Meik ekar le jen jonak eo emoj an kien karoke (MCL)Emoj an rub juon ian kakien ko an dren in idraak eo ilo Meik.
