Wednesday, April 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 2 Letter to the editorThe 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.

In my opinion the greatest and most exciting is scuba diving. I have renewed my passion for this challenging and fun sport in the last year. The dedication, energy and enthusiasm for scuba is so contagious. I caught it from the leadership in the scuba club. This year I participated in several of the many offerings of the club. One of the club sponsored dive trips was a night dive I will never forget. It does not go unnoticed that the majority of the work is done by a handful of people. Hours of planning and prep go into each event. Less than 20 members attend most of the monthly meetings. I want to thank Mac Kipp-McGuire, Travis Tikka, Mike Vick, Trace Fleming, Carla Richards, Melissa Selzler, Ron and Chris Gamble, the dive instructors and dive masters, for your undying inspiration, blood, sweat and tears you give to make all this possible for a novice like me. Thanks for keeping everything safe, clean and in working order for me when I get to dive. Thanks for your attention to detail and nances that have enabled the club to have the required funds in the compressor fund. So many good things have been accomplished this year. The things that have not been done are due to lack of participation from the membership. Let’s give the people who work so hard our support. Elections for the new leadership positions are in May. I am proud to be a member of the Kwajalein Scuba Club. See you underwater.

Wednesday, April 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 By Nell M. Drumheller EditorThe U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/ Reagan Test Site Host Nations Of ce is working in conjunction with Republic of the Marshall Islands of cials and entrepreneurs reviewing the possibility of bringing Marshallese-owned businesses to both Kwajalein and Roi-Namur. Maj. David Coffey, Host Nations chief, said, “It is just the common sense thing to do. Marshallese businessmen can provide goods and services not otherwise available.” Coffey added that right now there are three ventures being considered. “We are working Bank of the Marshall Islands, an RMI-run Laundromat, and a scuba shop,” he said. “The Bank of the Marshall Islands will provide check cashing services to C-badged employees that are no longer available otherwise on this island,” he added. Even though he said nothing is nalized he said that there is a possibility for one or all of these businesses to open from within one to six months. “The Bank has the least logistics so it could go in very fast,” he said. The bank would be located in an existing trailer near the dock security checkpoint. The scuba diving business would be located near the Small Boat Marina in a facility that would be built by the Marshallese company who would then operate the business. The Laundromat would go on the lagoon side of the DSC behind the Bargain Bazaar in a Marshalleseconstructed building.Marshallese business could add variety to USAKA retail options“The intent is to make goods or services available to this community to improve the quality of life here as well as to become more fully integrated with the Marshallese economy. We also look for opportunities to make contributions to the USAKA Recreation Fund through these initiatives. Utilities will be covered in one form or another through direct reimbursement or an exchange of goods and services,” Coffey said. The Bank of the Marshall Islands intends to open a branch on RoiNamur as well as on Kwajalein. Coffey said that he expects the scuba store to offer charter dive trips and other services to the community as well. Coffey added, “The scuba store will provide gear rental and charter services that I believe are in high demand from this community and our TDY visitors. The Laundromat is an example of a contractor providing a facility that we just do not have the funds to build ourselves.” That is the small picture, according to Coffey. “The big picture is that these initiatives demonstrate our willingness to become more fully integrated with the RMI economy. This can save us money while improving the RMI economic picture. Although these may be the rst RMI-run businesses on USAKA-leased property, there are plenty of examples of similar arrangements in Europe, Asia and pretty much all military facilities around the world, including the U.S. This is also the next logical application of the long-standing USAKA policy to become more fully integrated with the RMI economy. This policy is what led to the Oleanda dinner cruises, trade fairs, buying RMI bottled water, black pearls and coconut products. We have another trade fair scheduled for May 16.” At the March Town Hall, a community member voiced his concerns about the competition between vendors on Kwajalein and Marshalleseowned businesses. “I was at the Town Hall and heard the comments rst hand and all I can say is that none of the concerns raised are real issues. The scuba shop will not bring things in using an APO POB (Army Post Of ce post of ce box),” Coffey said. He explained that not only is it against regulations to use an APO POB for a private business, it is against USAKA policy for a nonresident to have a POB, so the scuba shop will not even have a POB. It will be written into the contract, and it was a part of the business plan that the scuba shop will rely mostly on sea shipments to bring in store stocks. On the occasion that something needs to be own in, the scuba shop will have it mailed to Ebeye. “This mail comes in on Continental, not on our aircraft, as was erroneously stated, and this is completely within all laws and regulations,” Coffey said. According to the major, the scuba shop is designed to enhance the recreational activities out here, not See BUSINESS, Page 12


Wednesday, April 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Missionaries bring vision, dentalDr. Ron Evans performs sutureless cataract surgery at Ebeye Hospital. Patients traveled from Majuro and outer islands to receive the free health care provided by Canvasback Missions. Dr. Nora Harmsen provides dental treatment to fourth grader Darlynn Luther at Calvary/Assembly of God School, including extraction, lling and sealants. By Mig Owens Assistant EditorCarlton Nathan, anesthetist at Ebeye Hospital, said that the cataract surgery he witnessed being performed on Marshallese patients is “like a miracle for them,” explaining that they walk in, undergo surgery, walk out and “after the patch is removed, they can see.” Providing this surgery and other vision care last week free of charge was Canvasback Missions, a California-based organization whose visit coincided with Health Awareness Month in the Marshall Islands. Jacque Spence, executive vice president and founder, said that what started in 1986 as an effort to build up the Marshall Islands outerisland dispensary system by way of a 71-foot catamaran has evolved into a mission that ies specialists where needed throughout the Marshall Islands and the Federated States of Micronesia not only to provide care, but conduct training and leave supplies. Of this trip to Ebeye, which is the mission’s fifth, Spence said, “It’s exciting – they now have people in place that we can train, what’s most important for the work to carry on…it’s better to teach and make the health assistant the hero, not yourself…Having a facility in the hospital also makes it easier.” The seven-person mission team consisted of Spence, three doctors, an operating-room nurse and two eye technicians. Three days into the mission, they had seen approximately 180 patients and performed 24 surgeries. Dr. Ron Evans, ophthalmologist, said the cataracts of his Marshallese patients are difficult because of their incredibly hard consistency. Spence likened them to ball bearings and said that many Marshallese have lived with them for years. “The pupils are hard to dilate because the muscles are used to restricting in the bright sun.” He said that the Phaco machine loaned to them by Advanced Medical Optics is top-of-the line equipment that allows for suture-less cataract surgery. A sense of gratitude for his own blessings is what drives Evans to take a break from his private practice in California to volunteer his time and expertise in the Marshall Islands. He also admits to a sense of adventure. “It’s unbelievable how 90 percent of the world lives. I help people out of gratitude for what I have and a call from God to help relieve other people’s plights,” he said. Evans added that it’s not all about what he gives, but what he gets back. He said one moment in particular from his rst visit to Ebeye would stick in his memory. That moment came when a lens was held to the eyes of an extremely nearsighted woman. He said she grew a big smile, started to laugh and exclaimed; “Now I can see my husband!” Likewise, Dr. Dennis Snyder, retinal specialist, believes strongly in serving others. “I think the world would be a better place if more people would serve others in a bene cial way. I believe heaven will be populated with those willing to serve.” Snyder uses his expertise to treat those with diabetic retinopathy, a progressive disease that can lead to blindness. Using a green light laser, Snyder makes scars in the eyes, which has an effect of slowing down visual loss. “If gotten to early, it almost prevents visual loss,” he explained. Spence credits the mission’s vol-

Army Kwajalein Atoll for making their visit possible. “Kwaj has allowed us to stay here and personnel even helped us nd a power cord (for an instrument that measures for lenses used during cataract surgery) – it’s like no other place in Micronesia. The Army base has made it possible for us to work, and the people have been so hospitable.” According to Spence, the organization is making plans to send an ear, nose and throat team to Ebeye in January. For more information on Canvasback Missions, visit Providing dental care to Ebeye’s children during the same time frame was a two-person team sponsored by Hawaii’s Wahiawa/Waisleia Rotary and the Waianae Rotary Clubs. Dr. Nora Harmsen, dentist, and Judi Bramlett, serving as dental assistant, visited the island’s private schools, including Jabro Private, Ebeye Christian, Calvary/Assembly of God, Queen of Peace Elementary and Father Hacker High School. Inspiration for their visit came because, as former teachers at Queen of Peace High School (now Father Hacker High School), Bramlett and her husband witnessed rst-hand the lack of dental care and wanted to help. One student, named Tota, had a cavity in her front tooth that Bramlett watched spread over a nine-month period to cover half the tooth. “We wanted to try to get some dental care to these kids. We felt a strong need to come back to help with dental work,” Bramlett said of both her work and her husband David’s in coordinating the Rotary Clubs’ international mission trip. At Cavalry/Assembly of God School on Thursday, the team treated the entire fourth grade in their classroom, enlisting teacher, Arsi Muller, to serve as dental assistant. Each student received some form of treatment including sealants and llings, as necessary. Bramlett explained that the fourth graders were chosen because they have secondary teeth and the use of sealants on six-year molars can help prevent cavities from forming where applied. Out of more than 100 patients the team had seen as of Thursday, Harmsen said only one was without cavities. “Decay is the most common problem here,” she said of her mostly school-age patients. Harmsen added that diets high in sugar are the root cause, citing lollipops, frozen icy drinks and syrupy colas as favorites of Ebeye residents. “I could come here and I could never be done at the current rate.” Ebeye has only one dentist and one dental nurse, according to Harmsen, and its water is not uoridated. At each school, the team conducted educational classes, showing a video, teaching proper brushing techniques and talking with students about good eating habits. The presentation was given to Calvary’s third and fourth graders. “We try to do a preventive twist because they are developing habits now as little kids,” Harmsen said. After a full day at the schools, the team saw patients of all ages at Ebeye Hospital, where they conducted more involved procedures. She added that they performed consultation work with the doctor and nurse in the clinic in order to See MISSIONARY, Page 6


Wednesday, April 20, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6By Mike Moore USAKA Safety Of ceRisk is always present in our lives. It is characterized by both real and potential hazards we may encounter whether at work or during recreational activity. What is risky or dangerous to one person may not be to another and this difference in perception in uences people’s decisions on safety. Most accidents and mishaps occur because poor judgment was used at the decision-making moment. And usually a leader or supervisor was absent when the incident occurred. To assist all of us, an easy vestep process was developed to help reduce the chance of an accident or injury. Here’s an example on how to use it on Kwajalein. A person wants to reef walk during the night. 1. Identify hazards Getting cut by coral, slipping or falling while walking over slippery or uneven rocks or coral, being stung by marine creatures, not being able to see Poor judgment can lead to mishapsclearly, or getting knocked down by waves. 2. Assess the risk associated with the hazards What is the probability and severity of slipping or falling, being cut, stung, or getting knocked over? 3. Use cont rol measures to make safe decisions Person reads the water safety regulation and knows ree ng at night requires the buddy system. Protective clothing must be worn, tide tables checked, marine creatures identi ed, and someone is informed of where and when the ree ng activity begins and ends. 4. Implement the controls Person goes ree ng with a buddy, uses a ashlight to properly see, wears appropriate shoes and gloves, checks the tide tables, informs someone of where and when reefing will occur, recognizes marine creatures that are harmful and knows how to properly touch and handle them or leave them alone. Conducts night ree ng during low tide and stays away from breaking waves. 5. Supervise and evaluate the results The initial risk of an accident or injury is reduced to a low probability of occurrence. The reef walker and buddy demonstrate a safe and successful recreational water activity. Risk management can be applied to any work or recreational activity. Take a few minutes to think about what hazards await you and then what you can do to ensure they don’t become harmful. During your stay on Kwajalein, are unsafe acts or practices condoned, ignored, or not reported for resolution? What indicators signal stopping or changing unsafe work or hazardous conditions and do people act on them? Do you know who to contact in your organization to correct a hazard or ensure work practices are safer? So what are our options? We can continue to work or play as we’ve always done and hope we don’t get hurt or we can take action and use risk management to be safe. “teach and to see what they do.” “I have a heart for helping people, especially children, have better dental care,” Harmsen, who works for the Veteran’s Administration in Honolulu, said. “This is a great opportunity to volunteer two weeks and really go out and do dentistry…saving even one tooth that someone would probably lose otherwise.” Harmsen said that though saving Tota’s teeth was part of their mission, the situation required that they pull four of them. Harmsen is making a partial for the patient that she hoped would be done before they leave. On what is her rst visit to the Marshall Islands for this mission, Harmsen said that there was one child in particular who touched her own heart. “On our rst day at Jabro, we asked for a volunteer to be rst. Seara smiled and her sparkly eyes lit up. Her willingness to go rst and trust us to take care of her I’ll always remember. She will be my Tota,” Harmsen said.MISSIONARY, from Page 5 Coffee shopLindsay Davis and Kaylee West serve drinks and desserts to Larissa and Trish Wildfang, and Larissa’s grandmother, Esther Fisher at the National Honor Society Coffee Shop Sunday in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room. Coffee Shop raises money for the group’s annual Ebeye Project, which involves purchasing school supplies that are given to various schools on Ebeye. According to AnnElise Peterson, NHS advisor, this year the students raised approximately $2400. Teamwork by students, parents and teachers made this year’s event a success, she said. “There is nothing like it on island.” Photo by Mig OwensDr. Ron Evans administers a local anesthetic to Helen Capelle prior to cataract surgery.
