Individuals made remarks about how happy the turtles were before Environmental took over. Where were they when we were cleaning the worm and parasite-infested muck that smelled like a ve day old dead animal carcass? Some said that the treatment of the turtles during cleaning was cruel. If you haven’t noticed, Kwaj isn’t Sea World and there are not enormous amounts of resources here to work with. Someone even proclaimed that those were his turtles and he has cared for them for a long time. Bones were found in the bottom of the pond. Is this an indication of what people use to feed the turtles? Don’t they know that green sea turtles don’t eat meat? And they call themselves experts! Some even stated that the turtles would come up to them when they walked up to the pond. With the vast diversity of sea species within such a small con nement, the competition for food must have been great. The poor turtles were probably starving and looking for food. I realize everyone has a right to an opinion, but let’s not make it condemnation. Next time, before you imply that you’re an expert, maybe you should become one rst. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all the volunteers and to the Kwajalein community for making the fth annual Spring Break Music Festival another success.As always this event would not have been possible without the support and willingness of many individuals and groups who volunteered their time and efforts for this event. A special thanks goes out to all the bands and singers for providing us with great live music throughout the afternoon and evening in not the best of conditions, the Kwajalein Yacht Club for hosting yet another successful chili cook-off, the Kwajalein Shrine Club for judging the chili, the various ethnic groups for cooking up a wonderful variety of food, the home brewers for supplying such a great selection of beer, all the vendors for their donations and nally to the crews of the following departments for all their support: Aviation, Fire, Heavy Equipment, Electric Shop, Community Activities, Buildings and Grounds and Food Services. Many thanks to the Kwajalein community for their generous donations. This year we collected more than $2,000 to support the Kwajalein Shrine Club. Thank you! There are several people and groups that I would like to personally thank, because without them it’s doubtful this event would have happened. Dan Eggers and Bruce Johnson for all the hours put in and pulling all the bands together, Neil Dye for his support, Steve Banducci and Sue Zher for the KYC chili cook-off, Leslie Ana Curtis and Sarah Barrs for their tattoos, Mark Scott, Toby Mann and their crews, Shigeko Jackson’s shave ice, Lee Allas and all who prepared the fantastic plate lunches, Mandy Smit, Denise Spurlock for the wonderful T-shirt design, all the high school kids who volunteered their time plus all the volunteers at the beer garden. And a very special Komol Tata to Asmond Arelong, Carton Karon, Mike Bill, Kisino Loeak, Sotin Maie, Rhodine Enos, Hiram Chong-Gum and Alantino Johnny for all their help and support through out the weekend. Thanks to the folks who donated their homemade chili in support of the KYC chili cook-off. It is truly the time, effort and support of the volunteers here in our community that make events such as this a success. Hope to see you all again next year! — Jim Stepchew event coordinator/co-founder Sabrina MummaBuckminster and Friends


Wednesday, April 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass did not include community input. KRS leadership input and opinions were used as basis for initial spending recommendations, according to Finn. In the beginning, the team worked with ideas, as funding was not available. They looked into ways to improve life in USAKA for employees and family members. Beginning in 2004, the money started to trickle in, according to Finn. To date KRS has allocated more than a half a million dollars to Quality of Life projects. Joe Marshall, Finn’s predecessor at Community Services, wondered “How can we empower this IPT?” He realized that more community involvement would help the program. “It is a positive thing [community involvement.] The representatives need to get out and talk to people,” Finn said. The updated charter for the IPT, under development since the fall of 2004, says, “To gather input from all demographics of the USAKA/RTS in order to develop recommendations Community involvement needed for Integrated Project team to succeed3Quality of Life IPT members By Nell M. Drumheller EditorAt the March 17 Town Hall on Kwajalein, an audience member voiced his concerns about the Quality of Life program, where the funds are spent and who determines which projects are supported. One of his primary concerns was that he felt the charter for the Integrated Product Team was not being followed and that the community did not have enough input in the decision process. Kevin Finn, vice president/deputy program manager, Community Services, heads the Quality of Life IPT. On Saturday, Finn explained that the Quality of Life program evolved from the proposal rst made by the Kwajalein Range Services joint venture of Bechtel National and Lockheed Martin when they developed a plan to compete for the contact on Kwajalein. In the proposal they stated that they would team with Chugach, an Alaskan native corporation, if their bid was successful. The Department of Defense gives nancial bonuses to companies that pair with native corporations. When KRS was successful in winning the contract bid for U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, Chugach was part of the team. The pieces fell into place, KRS has the contract, DoD pays an additional fee to KRS from the Of ce of the Secretary of Defense Indian Fund and, in turn, KRS puts a percentage of the money back into the community via the Quality of Life program. Indian Fund money is over and above normal operating funds from USAKA. “We proposed to do it [determine use of the funds] using a integrated product team approach,” Finn said. The rst Quality of Life IPT meeting was in August, 2003. The initial charter for the team read, “The mission of the QOL IPT is to provide recommendations to senior management for the improvement of the quality of life for all residents of Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. The QOL IPT will also provide recommendations for improving the quality of life for our Marshallese employees.” The rst charter and meetings See COMMUNITY, Page 6 Kevin Finn Chairman/Deputy Program Manager KRS Community Services/Executive Committee Janette Bishop Executive Admin Assistant KRS Community Services/Recorder/family Alex Britain Industrial Hygienist KRS Environmental Safety and Health/unaccompanied Capelle DeBrum Site Representative DOE, Bechtel Nevada Lynn Long MIT Site Administrator MIT/Lincoln Lab Lloyd Jordan Program Support Manager KRS Logistics (Chugach) Alan Stone Supply Manager KRS Logistics (Chugach) Jack Riordan Human Resources Specialist KRS Human Resources/RMI Employee Gerry Wolf Community Services, USAKA USAKA/TDY Michael Posey Community Services, USAKA USAKA/servicemembers Simone Smead Community Activities Manager KRS Community Activities/unaccompanied Sarah Stepchew GBR-P Administrator Raytheon/Family Dennis Johnson KPD Chief Aluutiq Beth Turnbaugh Hospital Administrator KRS Hospital/unaccompanied Emily Hillman Housewife Family Tammy Cotton San Juan Construction San Juan Construction Rebecca Wallace Boeing Administrator Boeing/TDY Stephanie Cousins Maintenance Planner KRS Mission Operations/Roi-Namur Annette Barnhill Business Analyst 3D Research Corporation Lauren Peters Junior Student/High School High School/student Ann Hosti Executive Admin Assistant KRS Mission Operations/unaccompanied Bob Burt KRS Controller Executive Committee Jeff Halliday KRS Counsel Executive Committee


By Elizabeth Davie ReporterSkating fans have a place to roll around. The skate park located across from Caf Paci c has been reopened as an unstaffed facility. The park was rst opened in October, 2000 after a group of children signed a petition to the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander asking that the park be constructed. “When the park was originally opened it was as a staffed facility. However, once the initial popularity of the park wore off the usage drastically declined,” said Kaya Landers, pools and beaches coordinator. “During the last three months of operation as a supervised facility, in May, June and July of 2004, there were only about six visits total to the park. Due to the lack of usage, the park was closed,” said Landers. According to Landers, Community Activities was tasked to look into reopening the park as an unstaffed facility available to the public as long as the park users abided by the regulations that pertain to required safety equipment and safe usage procedures. After coordination with the safety departments for USAKA and Kwajalein Range Services, the park was reopened as an unstaffed facility last month. The park Jake Villarreal catches some air over the spine of a quarter pipe. Michael Welch rolls down the half-pipe.4

Other regulations are posted at the park. is no age limit on using the park. However, minors must abide by the curfew laws. According to Landers the Skate Park is especially ers are a small, niche population. used by the visitors. “We intend to keep the park open in this manner reopening there has been increased usage and we is for all the skaters to police themselves and make said Landers.

Wednesday, April 13, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Th e new mo bil e kit c h en arr i ve d on th e mos t recen t b arge. Th e kitchen will be used to provide on-site dining for the community and will enhance current dining senior management that facilitate the use of Indian Fund expenditures for items that improve the morale and living conditions on the USAKA/RTS community. This committee evaluates and recommends usage of KRS team donations to the USAKA/RTS community.” Determining which programs get funding is an evolving process. The committee is far seeing. Finn said the committee considers who bene ts, ensuring that all groups’ needs are reviewed and slates projects to support the entire community. Project recommendations that will be funded by other sources are often rejected by the IPT. Finn said that the committee looks at projects that might otherwise not happen. Funding is exact. Committee members research the cost of doing a project and must allocate the funds for it. “There is a nite amount of money,” Finn said. Most members of the committee are volunteers, according to Finn. The committee members represent a cross section of the community. Finn said that members understand that they need to nd out what’s going on in the community so they can represent their groups in accord with the new IPT charter. Some projects that have been funded were put in place prior to the new charter and as the committee evolved. These projects were initiated by the original committee members. After the last Town Hall, some members of the community initiated a petition asking that the community have individual input in Quality of Life spending decisions and that some past decision(s) be reversed in favor of newer proposals. The petition was signed by about 80 community members. Finn said he thinks the petition helped the committee members understand how important it is for them to be accessible to the community. He added that there won’t be community-wide votes on Quality of Life issues but that community members are encouraged to contact him, or a representative of the committee, with their suggestion on how to spend the funds – all suggestions will be forwarded to the entire IPT for consideration. Some ongoing projects for the community include: • Mobile kitchen arrived on the most recent barge. • Golf course lockers will be replaced using Quality of Life funds. • An ice machine will be put in the Adult Recreation Center as it was determined that many residents of the bachelor quarters have inadequate freezers. • Emon Beach revitalization is in the design phase. • Scholarships for high school seniors with parent(s) working at employees in USAKA/RTS. Students do not have to reside on Kwajalein, and Ebeye guest students at Kwajalein Jr./Sr. H.S. are eligible as well.COMMUNITY, from Page 3 One of the projects funded through the Quality of Life IPT will be improvements to Emon Beach. Plans include an 800 square foot deck.

Her committment to and leadership of the Project Study Tasking Schedule Adherence Project energized an active Six Sigma team. Funk’s Six Sigma project reduced missed schedule milestones to less than 10 percent. In addition, her project reduced hours spent on poorly planned PST. This Six Sigma project was an example of process mapping and improvement. There has been strong feedback from customers supporting this PST process improvement leading to higher SeeSOR scores in a critical area and higher award fees.
