On April 19 and 20, Kwajalein Range Services celebrated more than four and a half months (1.6+ million work hours) without an accident as de ned by Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This is both a KRS and U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll milestone! Who is responsible? • KRS Senior Management – For supporting safety and paying for the safety celebration. • Logistics Management – For making the largest accident reduction by department. • All employees of KRS Automotive, Marine, Medical and Information Technology – For being part of the largest injury reduction. • Employee Management Safety Councils and Behavior Observation Teams – For helping your fellow employees reduce injuries on the job. • Medical and Workers Compensation – For helping all of KRS understand where the accidents were occurring. • Kwajalein and Roi-Namur Police Departments – For actively enforcing the road safety regulations. • USAKA and Reagan Test Site personnel – For supporting KRS’ drive to Zero Accidents. • Community and Food Services – For safely preparing and serving the great barbeque at the two Safety Celebrations with a short notice. • Other site contractors and residents – For working and playing safely. • KRS Environmental, Safety and Health personnel – For your dogged determination in getting all of us to see that Zero Accidents are possible. • And most important … all of the KRS employees – For accepting and practicing the Zero Accidents philosophy. Who is left? No one! That is the point. It has required ALL OF US to ensure we work and play with the Zero Accidents philosophy. Thank you.Norman H. Black KRS ES&H managerDo we, as citizens of America, have cause to worry? After reading two publications lately, I’m thinking we do. I read the editorial in the Hourglass about the controversy of revelry, etc. being played from speakers on the water tower. How very eloquent it was. It pointed out how self serving some people are. How dare you be woken up or disturbed in a nice temperaturecontrolled room in a safe environment that some very brave, self-sacri c-Quality of life More information soughtIs there a forum or medium that all of the decisions that are being considered at the Quality Of Life Integrated Product Team sessions can be made public? Maybe a section in the Hourglass on a regular basis? I believe that the issues that are being considered need to be explained to the community at the community level. With every town hall meeting that occurs there is usually a three to four page story so the entire community is made aware of the issues that will affect us all. I believe some standard should apply the decisions or considerations of the IPT sessions as well. See WORRY, Page 12 See QUALITY, Page 12

Wednesday, April 27, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3By Mig Owens Assistant EditorKwajalein’s unique environment offers a world of freedom for children, minus many of the dangers inherent to stateside living. But parents on island still face the challenge of setting limits and providing supervision. Guidance for doing so is set forth by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll. Gerry Wolf, chief, USAKA Community Activities, explained that Policy Memorandum 608-1 is in place “to protect the children.” It deals with both child supervision and curfew on island. Wolf said the policy is tailored to Kwajalein because of its location and proximity of housing to schools. For instance, according to the policy, school children of any age may travel without supervision, weather and distance permitting, to and from school, scheduled events, or wherever the parent/responsible adult allows. Parents in turn, are responsible for the child’s whereabouts. A change was made to the USAKA policy regarding supervision in January 2003 to re ect a change in Army regulations. The policy now bases guidelines for supervision on grade in school instead of age. On Kwajalein, children in grades Kindergarten through sixth are not permitted to be in self care or home alone on a regular basis. “These children must be adequately supervised by their parents, CDC [Child Development Center] (to include School-Aged services), a certi ed Family Child Care provider, another responsible adult/authorized baby-sitter, or enrolled in a Youth Center/Youth Services program,” the policy states. According to the policy, children in grades seven to nine may be in self or monitored care, as determined by parents based on the child’s maturity and capabilities. Parents are responsible for instructing their children on emergency and re plans and providing an emergency point of contact. Though, Wolf said, “any child unsupervised is always in danger of doing something that results in a child Safeguarding children, youth is parental responsibilitybeing hurt.” “Being home alone can be a frightening and potentially dangerous situation for many children and adolescents,” Marion Ruf ng, Psychologist and Employee Assistance Program coordinator, said. “In Home-Alone America scholar Mary Eberstadt offers an answer to the dangers that’s widely suspected but too politically incorrect to say out loud,” Ruf ng said. “A few decades ago, most children came home from school to a mother who monitored their diets, prevented sexual activity or delinquency by her mere presence, and provided a basic emotional safety net.” Ruf ng said that Eberstadt offers hard data proving that absent parents are the common denominator of many problem issues. “I feel there are many potential risks and dangers that parents should consider before a child is placed in a home-alone situation,” Ruf ng said. “The rst issue is age readiness. Our USAKA policy cites grade, but parents should consider age readiness emotionally, psychologically and possibly physically as well.” Disregard for the child supervision and curfew policy can be a problem if reported. “If a parent is violating the home alone policy then it can be reported and may be investigated as child neglect. Then it goes into the KRS [Kwajalein Range Services]-mandated program to be investigated as child neglect,” Wolf said. “If a charge is founded – it can be serious.” Chief Warrant Of cer Mike Posey, medical evaluator, whose expertise lies in family advocacy, said that family advocacy is an arm of USAKA that steps in when suspicion of family abuse or child neglect is reported. If deemed necessary, a case review committee is convened, with representatives from of ces and agencies across the island. Posey said that safeguarding children is a parental responsibility, adding that “the more they don’t, the more someone else will.” Ruf ng said that rst person in the chain of command for abuse and neglect reporting is Dr. Eric Lindborg, KRS chief medical of cer. “Island wide, Dr. Lindborg is the rst report. I am then called in to assess the report and to make the decision if the report of abuse or neglect is taken to the family advocacy level. In support of this, I work with Mr. Harvey Leightnor, the Family Advocacy director from Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu.” Child abuse and neglect on Kwajalein is not common, according to Ruf ng. “Older adolescents are usually responsible enough to manage alone for limited periods of time; however, parents should consider the child’s level of maturity and past evidence of responsible behavior and good judgment,” she said. Even when adequate supervision is provided, there are limits to the amount of child care parents may use. The USAKA policy states that no more than 10 hours per week is See YOUTH, Page 6

Wednesday, April 27, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Elizabeth Davie ReporterMembers of the community joined together Monday at Emon Beach to celebrate Earth Day. According to Cathy Madore, Kwajalein Range Services project environmental lead, more than 150 people came out to the beach to take part in the numerous activities of the celebration. Among the festivities was an alternative fuel demonstration, hands-on marine life, Marshallese basket-making demonstration and coconut husking, an archaeological dig, a computer station and island cleanup. Madore estimates approximately 50 people took part in the island cleanup. “We had more [trash] than we had imagined from both the island and the underwater cleanup,” she said. There was also a recycled art contest in which children were challenged to make art with recycled items and name it. The winners of the contest were: Best presentation of nature: Victoria Madore Best sound object: Keegan Gray Best sound object: Matt Madore Most creative use of materials: Cierra Swanby Best self portrait: Jenna Hammons Adult: Cherece Griswold and Angela Sinnott The Earth Day essay contest that was scheduled to have ended Thursday has been extended.

Wednesday, April 27, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 is 5 p.m. May 10. According to Madore, two $1,000 scholarships are being offered to eligible high school seniors for the essay that meets the submission criteria and adequately addresses the Essay Theme: Each nation is tasked with the responsibility to ensure that its current development does not degrade or exploit the resources that will be needed in the future. Madore said that writers are to describe their vision of how they would change things in their nation, community or neighborhood so that they are more sustainable. Essays will be judged on the degree to which the vision creatively addresses the challenge and potential of environmental sustainability; improves social, ecological, and environmental conditions; is mobilizing and inspiring to the targeted areas; and is viable and feasible. Essays will be accepted either electronically via e-mail or typed. Essays must meet the submission criteria and adequately address the theme in order to be considered. “It was a great celebration that couldn’t have happened without all the help from everyone involved,” said Madore. According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s Web site, on April 22, 1970, 20 million people across America celebrated the rst Earth Day. It was a time when cities were buried under their own smog and polluted rivers caught re. Now 35 years later, Earth Day is being celebrated around the globe.

Wednesday, April 27, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6allowed in the quarters of the person providing the care unless Family Child Care requirements have been met. This does not apply in situations where care is provided inside the child’s home, su ch as nanny care. Limits to babysitter-type care, given by those 13 to 17 years of age, may not extend for more than 12 hours. Also, children under 15 may not be left alone and/or unsupervised overnight in quarters. To be considered an eligible babysitter, a child must be 13 years old and in grade seven or above. They must also attend the Child Development Center babysitter training, which enables them to be listed on the CDC babysitting referral list. These sitters are trained in infant/ child CPR, basic rst aid and proper caregiver techniques. Enforcement of the policy is primarily parental with assistance from the law enforcement contractor, the Kwajalein Police Department. Violation of curfew could also lead to an arrest by KPD, which could lead to an appearance before the juvenile review board for offenders. The curfew developed for Kwajalein is based on Kwajalein, Wolf said. According to the policy, “children under the age of 18 years are not permitted in public places between the hours of 2400 and 0530, unless accompanied by a parent or custodial guardian 21 years of age or older.” Wolf said that guardians must be appointed legally. “Make sure whoever is allowed to take care of the child can act on their behalf especially in an emergency,” he said. Stated prominently in the child supervision and curfew policy is its purpose: to p rovide for the general protection and welfare of children in the USAKA/RTS community. “There are not a whole lot of restrictions,” Wolf said of the policy, but he added, “The responsibility is on the parent. Period.”YOUTH, from Page 3 KRS Presidential Award given to outstanding achieversBy Mig Owens Assistant EditorThe Kwajalein Range Services presidential awards recognize “over and above” efforts by employees, as decided by a committee of deputy program managers. Awards were presented to employees across Kwajalein Range Services on Roi-Namur March 18 and Kwajalein April 15. Both individuals and teams were among the recipients. Individual recipients included Tom Davis,Solid Wast supervisor, Gary Kato, Communication technician, and Joey Holley, Project Controls lead for Mission Operations. Davis trained and led an in-house team of KRS employees to perform ventilation system cleaning and certi cation for Food Services facilities on Kwajalein, Roi and Meck. His efforts resulted in savings compared to the historical subcontractor approach to the job. Davis also identi ed and removed potential re hazards, according to nominator Kevin Finn, vice president and Com munity Services deputy program manager. In a letter from John Putman, Air Traf c manager for the Federal Aviation Administration, Kato “consistently exceeds requirements in preventative maintenance, ful lling our expectations and needs.” His immediate response to a problem with a VHF radio on the evening of Sept. 4 is consistent with his critical role in aviation safety, according to Putman. Holley’s support of Mission Operations’ nancial tracking, budget development and Improvement and Modernization project nancial planning and tracking earned him a presidential award. He developed and implemented a rigorous tracking system that generates detailed reports for labor, other direct costs and travel expenses on a Mission Operations department basis. “The tools Joey has developed can and should be applied for all organizations in KRS,” Jim Wilhelmi, vice president and Mission Operations deputy program manager, said. Team presidential award winners will be covered in Saturday’s edition of the Hourglass Nominations for a presidential award may be made by anyone, typically supervisors, and can be done by e-mailing Deborah Black, executive assistant to the president of KRS. The nomination should include detailed information on the person’s or team’s accomplishments. Once a month, the committee meets to decide on recipients of the award.

I notice these same people are glad to take advantage of their freedom of speech to write an article. Someone fought hard to make that right possible. The second article I read was in People magazine. They are promoting Jane Fonda’s new autobiography. I sent People an e-mail this morning and asked them if anyone on their staff remembers the Vietnam War? Does anyone remember that Fonda showed up in Hanoi supporting our enemy? Does being rich and famous cancel treasonous behavior? Does pro t erase traitorous behavior? Have we, in America, become complacent? Are we letting a few ght hard for the many and not taking any responsibility for all we should be grateful for? Have we become so sel sh we can’t at least show respect to warriors/heroes, our country, our ag or quietly accept practices of our fellow community members? I think we need to worry! Faith FullertonIf there is an issue that the majority of the public as a whole is for or against I believe that shou ld be a major factor in any action. “It is a community quality of life board is it not?” is a very common question that many in the community seem to be asking. The article in the last Hourglass was the rst I had heard of some of these IPT issues. I am a concerned about the issue regarding Emon Beach and the decision that was made “on my behalf.” An 800-square-foot wooden deck in the middle of the beach? I am not sure how the placing of a seemingly unnecessary structure in the middle of one of the very few getaway spots we have here is advancing our QOL. I also understand and it was not mentioned in the Hourglass article that the Emon Beach “improvement” plan also includes paving the path that runs through Emon Beach. Is it the rumor mill at work? I don’t know, and that’s the problem. There are many of us that have no clue of the matters addressed “on our behalf” by this committee. I am curious what the majority of the community would decide about some these issues if they knew about them. I am all for making the quality of life out here as fantastic as possible, I carry some of that QOL responsibility as part of my daily work, but there are some things we have here that are already providing that quality of life…the peaceful Emon Beach environment is one of those. Natural is a quality or so I thought. I was married on Emon Beach because of its serenity (or as serene as we can nd here) and it is one of the very few places left on-island not overwhelmed by “improvements.” There are some situations where less is better and I hope we are not heading towards a mini Waikiki atmosphere for Kwajalein. That would be very sad. Michael Nicholson WORRY, from Page 2QUALITY, from Page 2 Kwajalein musician attends summer campEmily Hendrix, daughter of Mike and Sheri Hendrix has been chosen to attend the Interlochen Arts Camp in Interlochen, Mich. this summer. She was selected from more than 1,500 applicants for clarinet, according to an Interlochen press release.
