Wednesday, April 6, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass Sabrina Mumma 2The Hourglass is named for the insignia of the U.S. Army 7th Infantry Division, which liberated the island from the forces of Imperial Japan on Feb 4, 1944.

Murray. I am saddened that the bugle calls mean nothing or has no meaning to anyone who is an American. Stated in the Hourglass on a previous occasion was the meaning for each call, and what they represented. So many Americans sacri ced to ensure our freedoms that we have the opportunity to enjoy. Not only did they sacri ce on the battle eld, they gave up the opportunity to go to college and were away from family and friends. And there was only one reason they chose to do so, so we could live free in a society with choices and freedoms that other countries don’t have. And for all this some people are troubled because it is an inconvenience to hear these calls and respect their meanings. All personnel who gave up so much did so for respect of the ag that represents who we are. I am heartened to read Syvella Laverne Arthur’s letter (March 26) regarding the listing of deceased U.S. Soldiers in the Hourglass and I am saddened that some nd reading it—the listing—too hard to bear, to such an extent that they would not have it printed (as mentioned in the March 23 commentary). In this time of war, I feel we are called, as those not living or stationed in a combat zone, to give, maybe not our lives, but our deepest prayers of love to the Soldiers and civilians of all nations (especially those in the Middle East and Sudan regions) who are living in severe poverty with the threat of death looming. Printing the names of fallen U.S. Soldiers allows us this opportunity; at least with respect to our country’s own brothers and sisters abroad. It invites us to remember that we are at war, that there is much violence in the world and that even we, way out here on Kwaj, can (and Bugle calls are honor to those who served All military bases respect the ag and the sacri ces of so many by honoring the men and women with the bugle calls. Kwajalein is a military base and should be no different than any other installation. We all should be honored and have a tear in our eye for the privilege of respecting the ag and what it represents. But the alternative, if so many would not have made the sacri ce, would be a dictatorship with many more inconveniences. One right we have is not to work on a military base. Please feel free to exercise your freedom and work elsewhere if it has been such an inconvenience. All of our freedoms were earned by so many who were willing to do this for us. So next time you hear the bugle calls and choose to face the water tower instead of the direction of the ag, remember your options. And remember they have no meaning to you. You should be honored and ashamed of yourself. — John Jorgensenmust) also work for peace. To think otherwise, that this listing only serves to depress us, is to choose ignorance and to dishonor not only those directly involved in the violence, but also the families who live many miles away, unsure of the welfare of their loved ones. As a thought to consider, I am certain that our Iraqi brothers and sisters print such lists too, as the tragedy of war is not something they watch leisurely on television, or glance over in some magazine, but must witness and suffer directly. For them a listing of deceased Soldiers and innocent civilians does not simply elicit an unpleasant emotion. It is a practical, painful and necessary piece of information; a matter of someone’s life or death (the same is also true for many of us—Mrs. Arthur, her family and myself included—who have family and Casualty list should be continued See CASUALTY, Page 3 I cannot believe all the fuss over the bugle calls — some lost sleep and a minute or two to honor those who have given everything so that you might be free. I have been a proud Army Wife for 17 years; my husband has been in the Army for 21 years. We have lived on military installations for 13 of those years. There are some things that occur on every military installation. One is that Soldiers do physical training; often this includes running in formation with cadence being sung (I love to see my children, who have been woken up by Soldiers singing cadence, run to the window to get a glimpse of those Soldiers passing our See TRADITION, Page 3

Wednesday, April 6, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass nd the sources of those as they came up, Nicholson said. "We have had two reports/signs that a rodent died inside a facility. I am very pleased with that as that was one of my top two concerns during this project." No harm to children or domestic animals has been reported. Nicholson thanks the public for assistance with this issue and for ensuring that their children were educated on the hazards rodenticides present. "We had only one instance of someone tampering with a bait box as it was moved from its position near the oceanside perimeter road to one of the dome houses. It kind of freaked us out until we did nd it," Nicholson said. Bait boxes used for the project were of a new design, which Nicholson said was helpful in executing the operation. 3 3 Rodent reduction efforts continue friends serving in the military). I can’t think of any great champion of peace who wasn’t also radically open to the suffering CASUALTY, from Page 2 home). Another is that every installation also sounds at least Reveille and Retreat. Soldiers are trained from their rst day in uniform on what to do when the bugle call sounds; they are also taught why they do it. There is nothing blind about it. One cannot hear the music from everywhere on most installations, but those who can hear it, Soldiers, Department of Army civilians, contractors, even children, stop and face the ag, or in the direction of the ag wherever you happen to be on the installation, even if you cannot see it. Do they have to do this? No. They don’t have to do it, and neither do you. They do, though, and they do it to pay respect to our ag, the foremost symbol of our nation. By extension, they are standing with our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines when they do so. It is a mark of respect for those who honor the ag by custom and tradition. Is it an inconvenience to do it? For some, apparently so. The inconvenience seems slight when compared to what those who have died serving the nation have lost, some in liberating this very island. While alive, they honored the ag when the bugle called them to do so. The inconvenience seems slight when compared to what those serving now in Iraq or Afghanistan are experiencing. The next time you are awakened by the bugle, think about the man or woman who is sleeping in a cold, muddy hole or in the back of a vehicle with three or more other people and is being awakened or kept awake by a few incoming mortar rounds so that you can enjoy your freedom to make light of “honoring the water tower.” My husband, along with a number of other military members active and reserve on Kwajalein, was that person not too long ago; some still are, and they would give their lives ghting for your freedom. I don’t hear any complaints about receiving a paycheck for working on this military installation. YOU choose to live and work on this military installation, and this is one of the things that occurs on military installations. Since you have chosen to live and work on this installation, I would think you would want to honor these traditions. The few military that are here do appreciate it. I am sorry that you are awakened by the bugle calls and you feel forced or put out by the request to face the ag pole. So again, do you have to stop? No, but I hope you do, and while you are standing there I hope you think about the men and women who have fought for your freedom and not that you are honoring the water tower! — Renee Davie of the world. In the Catholic and Buddhist traditions, it is a central element of faith that progress towards peace begins when we open up to and accept the suffering that is all around us. The listing, in its way, helps us on this path. — Tucker Brown TRADITION, from Page 2 By Mig Owens Assistant Editor With the initial eight-week phase of the New Housing baiting project complete, Installation Pest Management is concentrating on the next phase, which involves placing bait at locations with evidence of the most activity. Because no baiting had occurred in the area prior to this project, the initial phase used a large amount of rodenticide in a concentrated area for a short period of time, explained Mike Nicholson, Installation Pest Management supervisor. Known as pulse baiting' in the rat world, this strategy is an attempt to rapidly reduce the population and "effect some biological issues found when dealing with rodents like hierarchical behaviors," he said. During this next phase, the bait stations will be placed in the targeted locations, followed by the normal island-wide baiting process as rodent activity is reported in the area. Ascertaining the number of rodents to date is dif cult, explains Nicholson, because the project involved baiting instead of trapping and because ies can break down dead rats in a matter of a day and a half. "The rodents will exit the bait boxes and die in the trees, bushes, rocks, etc. I know how much bait was taken but I won't guess on how many died, again that would be impossible," he explained. Installation Pest Management monitored the bait boxes twice a day to account for every gram of pesticide used, he said. Of the 10 pounds total put in the 65 bait boxes daily, about 15 ounces were gone or "hit" each day, according to Nicholson. Approximately 15 to 20 percent of that can be attributed to what was eaten by small hermit crabs and ants, neither of which are affected by the coagulant. "Both of the rodenticides were accepted," he said. "We did not notice any rejection or bait shyness (always a concern in rodent management) in either product but it would have been a shocker if there was as these products are what we use every day throughout the atoll." Reports of dead rodents continue to be made to Installation Pest Management, in response to their request at the start of the New Housing baiting project. "We have had two calls from residents that found and disposed of a dead rat during this time. There have been secondary signs of dead rodents (i.e., ies, smells) that have been found and we have tried to See RODENTS, Page 6

Wednesday, April 6, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Island talent makes sound of music(Photos by Mig Owens) Music Festival By Mig Owens Assistant Editor I slanders dodged rain showers Sunday to enjoy this year's Spring Break Music Festival, which raised approximately $2,000 for the Kwajalein Shrine Club. Spanning most of the day, the event featured local talent as well as Armed Forces Entertainment group, the Viki Nova band, ethnic food, a chili cook off, beer garden, vendors and equipment displays. Children enjoyed the bouncy house, a magic show, tattoos and shave ice, in addition to obstacle course races, which were new this year. "People contributed by donating money at the beer garden, purchasing T-shirts, etc. They are usually quite generous," said Doug Hepler, Freemason with the Kwajalein Shrine Club. "The money is used for one purpose and one purpose only: to send deserving handicapped/sick Marshallese children to the Shriners Hospital in Honolulu, for treatment." Hepler said that the Spring Break Music Festival is critical for the Kwajalein Shrine Club, as it is their primary fundraiser. "We like to keep our treasury healthy so as to be able to assist deserving children as Left: Amber Banducci graces the stage with a rendition of Heart's These Dreams.

The festival has been an island tradition since 2000, growing and evolving over time. Jim Stepchew, event coordinator, said that the event has really grown over the years. He explained that because it is a lot of work, it would not be possible if it were not for the support of all involved. "This whole thing started with a member of one of the local bands wanting to set up at Coral Sands and play music all day," Stepchew, a home brewer, explained. "He came to me and asked if the local home brewers wanted to make beer for it so we could sit at the beach, listen to music and drink homebrews." Another band member wanted to have a "Battle of the Bands," said Stepchew. "We thought we could combine the two, move it to Emon Beach and invite the entire community. Word got out and the Kwaj Yacht Club contacted me and asked if they could hold their annual chili cook-off in conjunction," he said. "Then various ethnic groups also wanted to sell their plate-lunch specials." "At this point we thoughtmusic, food and homebrewwhat better way to spend the afternoon," Stepchew said. "Each year we nd new things to add, what worked and what didn't from the past year and how we can make the entire event better." Stepchew said everything went well at this year's event except for some logistical problems, such as late set up and early take down of the bouncy house. "We might want to get some different activities for the kids. The only bad thing that stands out was the rain. But, hey, this is Kwaj and it didn't last too long," he said. "I do think it kept people away. The crowd seemed smaller this year from years in the past."The weather presented its challenges to performers and required that speakers and various other types of sound equipment be periodically covered with plastic garbage bags. "It's challenging to present ampli ed music without ampli cation. I have trouble remembering the next verse under the best of circumstances," Dan Eggers, Zooks bassist, said. "That said any shortcomings in my own performance were mine alone. I hope no one was subjected to anything too grueling."Following a monumental effort demonstrated by volunteers to coordinate, transport, lift and set up the outdoor gear at Emon Beach, "graciously provided by Community Activities with a deposit provided by the Yacht Club," Eggers said, "continuous adjustments were necessary to accommodate the requirements of a variety of performers and presentations in as timely a manner as possible." Eggers offers thanks to individuals and groups that worked hard to make this year's event happen, "Jim Stepchew and Bruce Johnson but especially Neil Dye, who has been with us from the beginning and provided everything that keeps it running smooth with tunes and information everyone needs throughout the day," he said. He added that the Spring Break Music Festival is "a chance to give something back to the community while making a positive donation to the great and much needed work the Shriners do."

Wednesday, April 6, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 RODENTS, from Page 3 "It really saved a lot of man hours and maximized our efforts," he explained. "We did notice that the direct light through the top did accelerate the spoiling of some of the bait but all in all they helped the way we wanted them to do." Nicholson emphasized that the project performed in the New Housing area was not a rodent eradication effort, but a rodent reduction effort. "All of the baiting performed on all the islands performed by Pest Management is done as a reduction/ control measure," he said. "Eradication is a completely different concept and involves importation, quarantine and several other big top-down issues." Concentrated reduction efforts have been made in this vain at the Surfway facility, where trapping is used instead of rodenticide. "The main problem we are having at Surfway is in the storage area in the back. It is an old structure that was not designed to house the store's food products. As with the new housing facilities, the Surfway issue is one of accessibility into the storage area," he said. "Due to some of the construction and fabrication features of the old storage area there are areas that rodents have gained access" Nicholson said that Facilities Operations and Maintenance is currently working on correcting the structural issues. "The rodent control techniques in use in the Surfway are exclusion and trapping. Once the structural problems are resolved, the introduction of any new rodents will cease and the population we trap will not be replaced," Nicholson said. "We have a couple dozen snap traps set up throughout the storage area and the store itself. We have also found pups and new born rodents as FOM has opened some of the areas within the storage structure that were not accessible before." "As long as the rodents have access to the storage facility they will have food, water and a place to live, we will continue to have activity and continue to catch them," he said. Nicholson said that Installation Pest Management will continue with its baiting and trapping of rodents throughout the atoll. "Rodents usually just don't go away on their own especially if they have found a food source or nesting site. We have had some residents tell us that they hear rodents in their ceiling but that it is no problem until they come inside the quarters. I would like to say to those residentsif there in your ceiling they are inside your quarters and to please give us a call. We would like to remove the rodent and locate their access point if possible to prevent any future visits." Nicholson asks that residents who suspect they have a rodent visitor call the Service Desk at 53550. He explained that if Pest Management is not informed of activity in the residences, they can do nothing to help. Nicholson also suggests that residents take a close look around their quarters on a regular basis. "If you see a hole or gap that can be used as an access, please plug it up or call to get it plugged up. The rst and most ef cient step in indoor rodent prevention is exclusion. Deny a rodent's access to your quarters and you should never have an unwelcome visitor." RODENT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS Should you nd evidence of rodent activity in your house (droppings, dead rat, etc.) 1. Wear rubber gloves. 2. Make sure there is good ventilation if it is a con ned area. 3. Spray dead rodents, droppings/urine, nests and surrounding areas with a 10-percent bleach and water solution (one part bleach and nine parts water). Allow at least 15 minutes of contact time before removal. 4. Bag and seal the rodent, droppings and clean-up materials in a plastic garbage or Ziploc bag and dispose of it in your outdoor dumpster. 5. Clean the affected area with paper towels or a mop. Do not sweep or vacuum the area. 6. Before removing the gloves, spray them with disinfectant, wash the gloved hands with soap and water and then remove and dispose of the gloves in a plastic garbage bag. 7. Finally, thoroughly wash your hands with soap and warm running water. Vigorously scrub under running water for at least 20 seconds.Should you nd evidence that your food may have been exposed to rodents, the following steps are recommended 1. If you nd a package of food that has been gnawed open, dispose of this food. 2. If you believe that the tops of food contact surfaces, such as a counter top, or the tops of canned foods, such as soda, may have been exposed to rodents, take the following steps. Wearing rubber gloves, spray the surface or top of the can with a 10-percent bleach and water solution and let sit for 15 minutes. Wipe with a new paper towel or a clean cloth, such as a new handiwipe. Then, follow the same disposal and glove/handwashing procedures as described above. 3. Handwashing is considered to be one of the single most important steps that a person can take to help protect themselves from a variety of illnesses, including colds, u and pink eye. Wash your hands often throughout the day and whenever you return home. Always wash your hands after using the bathroom and before handling food. If you have any questions, contact the KRS Pest Management Of ce at 54738 or the Food Safety/Sanitation Of ce at 52633.

This is a mandatory requirement for club members. The meeting will have a full agenda for the membership to discuss. If you scuba dive on this atoll from Kwajalein or Roi you must be a member of a command-sponsored club. This membership is an absolute requirement. In addition to safety, it is also the time to pay the piper for all that air we are going to use this coming year, in other words, our annual dues. Because we now have a prudent reserve in this compressor fund, at the last meeting, the decision was made to stop charging renewing members the $30 compressor fee. This means that the dues for renewing members are $10 a month, $120 a year. Just so we are crystal clear, there are no provisions for a rebate or refund of dues if you leave prior to the end of the year. This is cheap diving by any standards. The compressor fee will continue to be assessed to all new members. A personal observation: I have been to Pohnpei and Kosrae in the last year and paid $100 a day to dive. We are also proposing several KSC constitutional changes with regard to classes of membership. The most signi cant change is the introduction of a shortterm visitor fee. We are going to propose a at $60 fee for our family and friends who come to visit on a Form 480 authority. This fee will also be charged to temporary duty personnel who are here for less than 30 days according to their orders. We would like to do away with the TDY class and anyone staying longer than 30 days on TDY would be required to join the club as a full member. This membership would be tracked monthly as opposed to an automatic expiration in April. This way they would be able to come and go during the course of a calendar year. We anticipate that this will do away with the TDY personnel who only pay for the rst month of membership and then stay for months at a time. We are going to have nominations for club of cers at this meeting. If you would like to be a part of this organization make your wishes known. The election will be held in May at the regular meeting.
