Box 23, Local; or hourglass@ thanks Kwajalein Buckminster and Friends by Sabrina MummaTo the entire Kwajalein Community, Thanks to the generosity of the Kwaj community, the Fifth Annual Kaleidoscope of Music was a complete success. I’m sure a great many people will be sad that they missed one of the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club’s biggest events, but for those who were there, what a treat! In addition to seeing a great many of the talented performers on island in one place, we had the most yummy desserts, lovingly prepared by some of the highly talented culinary specialists on island! A great many thanks goes to all who lent a hand for preparation, execution and clean-up of this two-day event. In addition to the 38 performers, we had an awesome back-stage crew, sound and lighting, decorators and servers. Every one of these people can be extremely proud of their volunteerism. The YYWC scholarship award is based primarily on service to the community and these incredible people set a fantastic example for our youth. The mission of the YYWC is to enhance education and the Kaleidoscope experience could remind us that honor, dedication and commitment to ourselves and community are extremely valuable lessons to learn and pass on. My very deepest thanks goes to my family for allowing me to turn our home into Kaleidoscope central. Kaleidoscope may be my passion, but they are my heart! Hope to see you all next year! — Sheri Howard 2nd Vice President in Charge of Fundraising Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club


Wednesday, March 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 By Mig Owens Assistant EditorPowered by four 4,000-kilowatt to 4,400-kilowatt Caterpillar diesel generator sets for the past year, Kwajalein’s electrical plant returned to using only three on March 1. Such a move may cause intermittent, unplanned outages in the event that one of the engines fails. “With three, if we lose one because of mechanical failure, the others won’t be able to carry the load,” Kevin Ehart, Utilities department manager, said. “The result will be shedding of power feeders based on criticality.” Though critical loads will be protected and will not shed, the housing area will likely loose power in the event of a mechanical failure, causing outages. Ehart said that outages would last approximately 15 minutes, which is about the time it takes to restart power from the engine. He advises residents that there is no need to call either the plant or the Service Desk when this happens. Use of four engines this past year was necessary because of an anomaly, which has since been discovered, with the help of the manufacturer, and resolved. Before that, the island had always relied on just three engines. Ehart said savings from returning to the use of three engines is about 265,000 gallons of diesel fuel a year. With the current cost of diesel fuel at $1.33 per gallon, the bottom line factored into the decision. A Six Sigma process improvement plan was developed on the topic. “The plant was designed for the use of three engines and has returned to that state, enabling the three engines to perform better at the higher loads for which they were designed,” Ehart said. Though there is no way to know when an engine is going to break, he said that outages are not going to be common. “Our primary goal is reliable power as effectively and ef ciently as we can do that,” Ehart said.Minor outages possible Power plant returns to original designBy Mig Owens Assistant EditorSoftball season is in full swing on Kwajalein. With that come injuries, creating what might be considered the island’s ‘walking wounded.’ Although injuries that occur on the softball eld may not count against the company’s ‘hours without a recordable or lost-time injury,’ they do count. “Sports injuries are off work. We keep track of the number of them internally and we see that they are rising, particularly in the past few months with softball season,” said John Feldman, Safety manager. Feldman explained that injuries that occur at work are easily tracked against hours worked using payroll data. Off-hours injuries are harder to discern, based on the fact that there’s no way to account for how much time people spend on recreation. Because Kwajalein Range Services considers safety a top priority both on and off the job, the company keeps track of injuries in an effort to “determine how well we are protecting ourselves and our fellow workers,” he said. The goal is zero accidents, wherein no one gets hurt, he added. “In the event of an injury, most KRS contract employees are covered for medical and certain disability bene ts under the Defense Base Act,” Feldman said. “It provides coverage for employees working at overseas bases and in remote locations. It usually covers employees whether or not they are injured on or off the job. It does not cover medical conditions or family members. They should be covered by personal medical plans.” At present, the numbers of on and off-the-job injuries are about evenly divided. On the job, KRS has worked nearly 1.2 million hours without a recordable or lost-time injury. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has certain criteria on which it bases recordable injuries. Such an injury is one that requires medical treatment more than rst aid or a work restriction involving major job duties for more than one week. An injury that occurs while commuting to and from an employee’s usual place of work via bike, plane or ferry would usually not count because it does not occur in the workplace. But, signi cant aggravation of prior or chronic injury would be counted if it requires a higher degree of medical treatment than in the past. Feldman said that KRS boasts an injury rate less than half that of a typical service organization performing similar work. “Although our performance is good, we continue to strive for no injuries through a comprehensive workplace safety program,” he said. Next to sports injuries, bicycle injuries make up the largest group of off-the-job injuries, with some serious enough to require specialized treatment off island. “Outside of work, many of us forget we are on a remote island. While we have excellent medical care, we don’t have all the diagnostic equipment and specialists you would nd in a large hospital or medical center,” Feldman said. He said that risky behaviors both on and off the job sooner or later lead to accidents. “Don’t wait until you have an injury and can’t partake in family or sports activities that you realize the value of working and playing safe,” Feldman said. “And if you observe somebody doing something risky, let them know it in a caring manner. By saying nothing, you are just reinforcing the behavior.”Sports account for one-half of off-job injuriesNext to sports injuries, bicycle injuries make up the largest group of off-the-job injuries, with some serious enough to require specialized treatment off island.


Wednesday, March 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Father-daughter act Lindsay (on vocals) and Jerry Davis (on guitar) combine talents forYou Don’t Know Me. By Mig Owens Assistant EditorA myriad of performers showcased their hidden and not-so-hidden talents both Sunday and Monday as they lit up the Davye Davis Multipurpose Room stage for Kaleidoscope of Music 2005. The event, sponsored by the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club, is in its fth year and raises scholarship funds for Kwajalein Junior/Senior High School seniors. According to Sheri Howard, event director, this year’s event raised approximately $3500. “It was successful in that the show itself was great, the entertainment was wonderful,” said Howard. “We had seasoned Kwaj talent as well as brand new Kwaj talent.” Howard said pianist, Stephen Johnson, called her after being on island only two weeks to inquire about performing. “It was a debut for him, now he’s made lots of friends,” she said. Although several performers missed Sunday’s show because of illness, the show was complete on Monday night. Attendance was down somewhat, which may be attributed to the Commodore’s Ball, also held Sunday night, as well as the fact that Howard believes there are less people on island than there have been in the past. Community support is what makes the scholarships happen, according to Howard. “Applications can now go out to all the seniors,” she explained. “This isn’t a tremendous amount of money, but it helps them get a leg up on school. Because it’s a cash award, they can spend it how they see t.” This year’s Kaleidoscope proved that local talent is abundant on Kwajalein. And, as Howard said, “We’re always looking for new adult performers.”Island performers show off talentto support senior scholarship funds
