Well, our dear moms and dads were wrong. There are indeed monsters and they walk the streets of American small towns and large cities. If you don’t believe it, then you haven’t heard the news of 9-year-old Jessica Lunsford who was raped and murdered in Florida a few months ago or the more recent news of 8-year-old Shasta Groene and her brother Dylan, who is probably dead, in Idaho. These children were abducted and sexually assaulted by men who had histories for the same type of crime dating back decades. Those “men” had been in and out of prison most of their worthless lives and they were out yet again to commit the horrible acts against innocent little ones. When I see and hear stories such as this, it bring tears to my eyes and rage to my heart. And the question I ask is why does this keep happening. How many times do innocent children have to suffer and be murdered before our government acts to protect them. I don’t really care why these people do what they do. I don’t give a damn if they had tough lives. I don’t care about the psycho babble used to explain their actions. Other people have had tough lives but they don’t go out and molest and kill children. Monsters who are capable of committing such terrible crimes are not going to be rehabilitated or cured. How many times have you heard some pompous psychiatrist say that a criminal was “cured” and no longer a threat, only to have the “cured” criminal commit another horrible act against an innocent person. The president says that the most important job the government has is to protect American citizens. What American citizens need protection more than our children? Congress needs to pass a law making it a federal crime to commit an act of sexual molestation against a child with a mandatory life sentence with no possibility of parole. The president needs to sign such a bill and the courts need to uphold it. End of story. Some lawyers and judges have distorted the constitution to protect criminals long enough and it’s time Americans take it back and make it work for the good it was intended. I’m sure the great men who wrote our constitution didn’t mean it to protect child killers. How many more stories will we hear of yet another child being abused and killed by yet another repeat offender our so-called justice system has put back on the street before something is done? I don’t know all of the statistics, but I hear that most crimes of this nature are committed by someone who has done it before and has been in prison and released. There is a push to start a national registry of sex offenders so parents and communities will know if such a person is among them. That’s ridiculous. The only place sex offenders (especially against children) should be is in prison until the day they die. We have a congress that called a special session and passed a bill on behalf of a single individual and a president who ew from Texas to Washington D.C. to sign it. Surely they can do something on behalf of the thousands of children who have suffered at the hands of these monsters. Americans have a short attention span. We stay outraged for a few days and then forget it. We can’t forget this. We have to make our voices heard and demand the government do its job. Only then will there be the slightest chance that children might be safe from sexual predators. What could be more important than the welfare and safety of the most innocent among us?The Hourglass apologizes for having the incorrect movie listed for Sunday night. We regret any inconvenience.

Saturday, July 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 Rest, relaxation, family By Nell M. Drumheller Editor“I’m here and I’m thinking ‘is this a dream?’” Warrant Of cer Mike Tracy asked earnestly. After spending close to half a year in Iraq, the Hawaii Army National Guardsman is home on Kwajalein visiting his wife Lisa and two children, Ryan, 14, and Christine, 12, for his mid-tour rest and relaxation break. Tracy is a Quality Assurance Analyst with Kwajalein Range Service and has been a member of the Guard for nine years. This is his rst combat deployment. In Iraq Tracy is a Battalion Maintenance Of cer with his unit the 29th Brigade Combat Team. The unit is stationed at Camp Anaconda, Balad, approximately 68 kilometers north of Baghdad. “It’s surreal,” Tracy said of adjusting to living in Iraq and being under re. “First you heard the rockets and mortars. We were nervous,” he admitted. But time and the repetitiveness of the constant re made the attacks seem commonplace. In time he learned to wait for the all clear. “We get on our radios, nd out what’s going on and get back to work,” he said. It became routine, “a very different kind of normal,” Tracy said while adding that he was always on edge, always alert. The work is never ending according to Tracy, who said that he was on the job everyday. The state of alert stayed with him on his ight back home, “I came off the airplane and was still on edge, intense. The rst couple of days I’d think, ‘where’s my weapon,’” he said, while patting his hip where he carried a 9 mm pistol in Iraq. Tracy said he wasn’t prepared for the poverty of the people of Iraq. “They are dirt poor. They live in mud huts,” he said. He said that in the past all of the money, education and opportunity stayed with the elite. “A lot of the people can’t read their own language,” he said. “Now they are getting an education,” he said. Local nationals have jobs on Camp Anaconda and “work to sustain themselves, but are also learning trades.” The coalition forces are making a difference according to Tracy. “We’re changing the attitudes.” Tracy describes the Iraqi people as seeming to like Americans, and that they are interested in Western ways. Iraq War veteran takes a breather Since returning to Kwajalein Tracy said he has been confronted by people who compare Iraq to Vietnam. He is adamant in his response. “It’s not Vietnam,” he insisted. He compared the battles in Vietnam where U.S. servicemembers would take a hill, only to have it overrun a few days later. In Iraq, he said the people have “their rst chance to vote, to support themselves and have businesses. They are not under a dictatorship.” He admits that the insurgents are becoming more sophisticated. But says that the Iraqi people are making a stand. “Some small villages won’t tolerate the insurgents. I believe that eventually the county is going to realize that they don’t have to accept the insurgents.” U.S. servicemembers in Iraq are a combination of active duty, Reserve and Guard forces. “The Reserves have changed,” Tracy said. “We do deploy. We do the same things that the active duty [servicemembers] does,” he added. Active duty and reservists are working together according to Tracy. Tracy said that the mix of active duty troops who are often younger than the reservists, with the Guard and Reserve contingents is working well. He said that more than 40 percent of the in-country Soldiers are reserve and guard troops. “Reservists use their non-Army skills to help the community,” he said. He gave examples such as a reservist who is a tank mechanic in the Army but and electrical engineer in civilian life; the combination of skills and experience add to the effectiveness of the individual and his value within the Camp Anaconda community. Tracy said that the Soldiers in the 29th went to Iraq thinking they would be transporting products and maintaining equipment but were given the additional responsibility of camp security. He said they met that challenge and exceeded. “They’re [the Hawaii Army National Guard] proud to do what they’re doing. The teamwork is unbelievable,” he said. Tracy will be returning to Iraq soon to nish out his tour of duty. Leaving his family behind will be tough. “They’re very supportive,” he said of his family. “The community has been wonderful,” he added about his neighbors on Kwajalein. Tracy said that the support of both KRS and the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll staff has made his deployment easier. “USAKA has been really great,” he added.Warrant Of cer Mike Tracy checks to see how much son Ryan has grown in his absence as daughter Christine looks on. Tracy has been deployed to Iraq since Jan. 16. He will depart July 16 to return to Iraq to complete his deployment.

Saturday, July 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 WWII ships, planes rest beneath Kwajwaters making for a world-class dive siteEugen in the planned spot, so they tried to run her up on the downwind reef. The strong winds overpowered the tug, however, and the Eugen struck the reef off Ennubuj broadside, ipping over and sinking on Dec. 22, 1946. Today, a prop and rudder protrude from the water at low tide, while her bow rests approximately 110 feet below the surface. Other wrecks include the Akibasan Maru, she is a 4,607 ton freighter measuring 389 feet in length with a beam of 50 feet. The ship is locally known as PAkibasan was rst dived The Ikuta Maru was a 2,968diately under the bow, a rise in the lagoon bottom brings it up to about 150 feet. Most of the ship, along with the main attractions, can be seen on dives that stay within the 130 foot sportdiving limit. The biggest attractions on the Ikuta are three big guns, one on each side in front of the bridge and one on the bow. Reported to be 5-inch guns, they actually appear to be a bit smaller. There are also machine guns on top of the bridge. The stern of this vessel was completely blown away, and its remains lie some distance behind the rest of the hull. These and many other wrecks are near by. According to U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll regulation all divers must have their advanced certi cation or be working towards it to dive in Atoll waters. Fleming said that By Elizabeth Davie ReporterMany things bring people to Kwajalein. Among the most popular is diving. So what is under the waves? Kwaj is rumored to have some of the best diving in the world. According to Trace Fleming, Scuba Club Web master, there are between 60 and 80 wrecks scattered around Kwaj. Fleming said the diving here is de antly to get the great coral and such a large collection of World War II wrecks, there is nothing like it,” he said. “The large ships are Japanese civil freighters that were pressed into service by the Imperial Navy. The large collection of aircraft near Roi-Namur were dumped from landing craft and barges by the U.S. military. The ships sunk near Roi-Namur were sunk by aerial attack in December 1943, with the exception of the Eiko Maru. The Eiko Maru was severely damaged in the aerial attack but eventually sunk while at anchor by a U.S. battleship’s shore bombardment in January 1944,” said Kyle J. Fischer, Kwajalein diving enthusiast and amateur adventurer. According to Fleming the most famous wreck out there is the Prinz Eugen She is a German heavy cruiser that lies near the north end of Ennubuj (Carlson) Island. The Eugen was an escort to the battleship Bismarck during battles in the North Atlantic. The Bismarck and the Eugen sank the British battle cruiser Hood but the Bismarck was tracked down and sunk a few days later. The Eugen escaped and had further wartime adventures in the English Channel and North Sea. Captured at the end of the war, she was brought to Bikini Atoll for two nuclear tests in 1946. After the tests, the Eugen and the other surviving test ships were taken to Kwajalein. While awaiting her nal fate, the Eugen developed a leak and began listing. A decision was made to beach her to prevent sinking, but this all happened during a period of strong trade winds when Kwaj’s larger tug was not in port. The small tug did not have the power to beach the See WRECKS, Page 7 A coral encrusted ship lies on the ocean bottom.

Saturday, July 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Take it from an expert,moving can be a snap See MOVING, Page 16 By Nell M. Drumheller EditorWhat sort of training or experience makes someone an expert? Sometimes academic degrees denote expert knowledge. Others may be seen as having expertise because of their years on the job. Karen Pickler is an expert when it comes to permanent change of station moves. “Since John [Pickler, Kwajalein Ranges Services president] and I were married in 1965, we have moved 32 times,” she said, establishing her expertise. Summer is the moving season on Kwajalein. Karen has some advice for people who have less moving experience than her family. “The most important thing is to make every move a complete family event, to let the children know that you are all in it together,” she said. She recommends parents let their children express their feelings and “don’t discount them, but let them know that you will all help each other. You de nitely need to express a positive attitude yourself about the move. “If the parents demonstrate a positive attitude toward the move, the children are more likely to react favorably. We also helped the children stay in touch with the friends they had to leave behind--arranging summer visits whenever possible,” she added. Karen suggests that learning about your new ‘home town’ will make the move go more smoothly. “As soon as you know about a move, get as much information as possible about your new location. Get excited about the opportunities,” she said. Most Kwajalein residents will have many weeks to plan their moves. According to Robert Bills, KRS Human Resources manager, contracted employees typically know 60 to 90 days in advance that they are moving. Karen’s experiences, as the wife of a career Soldier, weren’t always that predictable. “Practically speaking, I like to know about a move at least six weeks in advance. First, I send out change of address announcements, and then I start washing everything that is washable. When the packers come, I like everything to start out clean,” she said. “Before the movers come, establish a “safe room”--a small room which is empty except for your suitcases and any items you will travel with. Even the most seasoned movers can run into snags. “The most challenging move was the move we made in 1987, going from Fort Sill, Okla. to Baumholder, Germany,” she said. “It was our fourth overseas move, but other factors made it dif cult. First, John was not in town for the moving process, because the Army scheduled him for a mandatory pre-command course during the time the movers would be packing and loading our possessions.” Karen added that complicating the event was the fact that they had to establish three shipments: Household goods (5,000 pounds which would be our main shipment to Germany), hold baggage (a smaller shipment of items which would arrive more quickly--basic necessities), and storage (items which would remain in storage for the three years we would be in Germany). “Of course, we also had to have our suitcases packed for the ight over these clothes and items would be all we had for the rst few weeks. I was coordinating packing for myself, our oldest son (who was going to be a senior in high school), our youngest son (who was 8-yearsold), and our daughter (who was going to be coming back at the end of the summer to start her freshman year of college). Enough said, I think. At the end of all this, I was exhausted!” While moving is considered highly stressful according to mental health professionals,

Saturday, July 9, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7 By Richard C. Nugent, CSP Manager, Environmental, Safety and Health According to “The State of Home Safety in America” report, published in the January issue of American Journal of Preventive Medicine home injuries result in approximately 20,000 deaths and 21 million medical visits in the U.S. each year. The published findings, in the June issue of Profession Safety show that the leading causes of home injury related deaths include falls, poisonings, res and burns, choking/suffocation and drowning. This report, generated by the Home Safety Council through the University of North Carolina Injury Prevention Research Center, also provides a Web site for gaining further information. Included in the information are safety tips, checklists, safety information, and a list of helpful resources. The Web site is WWW.homesafetycoun cil.org. For more information, visit the Web site above or contact the Kwajalein Range Services ES&H Department, Fire Department or Medical Staff.Some helpful tips for home safety include: 1. Always hold handrail when descending or ascending stairs. 2. Make sure of footing when walking on wet surfaces. 3. Wipe up spills immediately. 4. Do not store items on or at the bottom or top of stairs. 5. Keep children’s toys out of travel paths. 6. Keep pan and pot handles turned in towards the stove. 7. Keep lighters, matches and lighter uid away from children. 8. Keep children away from lighted grills. 9. Have a re safety escape plan and make sure all family members know it. 10. Provide tamper proof attachments on cabinets. 11. Keep medicines and other potentially poisonous material away from children. 12. Have a portable re extinguisher handy. 13. Change your smoke detector batteries often, at least every six months. 14. Keep combustibles away from heat sources. 15. Teach your children to swim and about water safety. 16. Always accompany and watch children around swimming pools or the beach.Home Safety ideasMake your home a safer placedivers are free to explore the wrecks as long as they have a clear path up. Penetration dives, going inside the vessel, are not allowed and nothing is to be taken from the site. Fleming recommends Roi-Namur to divers who are burnt out on Kwaj wrecks while Fischer said “I have dived the legendary wrecks of the Bikini Atoll and would say while the historical signi cance of the Kwajalein wrecks are slightly less, they are quite interesting to see. I would, however, point out the wrecks in Bikini are in much better condition because divers are prohibited from removing any artifacts from the wrecks and the rule is strictly enforced. While on the wrecks of Bikini it is common to nd intact portholes, dishes, personal effects and instruments. “You would be hard pressed to nd many places that offer so many attractions in a single place. Also, the water temperature and clarity is among the best in the world for diving,” Fischer said. According to Fleming the temperature of the water is between 82 and 84 degrees year round, no matter what the depth is, and on a bad day the visibility around the Atoll is better than a good day stateside. For more information on the wrecks near Kwaj visit www.kwajaleinscubaclub.com. Fleming recently added a feature to the site, a map that shows a number of wrecks. The map also shows the global positioning system coordinates along with the depth, what it is and the local and/or proper name.

Terry (Joan Allen) is a middle-aged housewife and mother of four teenaged daughters and gets the shock of her life when her husband, without a word of warning, leaves them behind to move to Sweden with his secretary. Going through a bender of depression and alcohol, Terry nds herself commiserating with Denny (Kevin Costner), a former baseball star turned unenthusiastic radio personality who was her husband’s best friend and a frequent presence at the house. With both Terry and Denny feeling down in the dumps about recent events in their lives, the two nd themselves drawn to one another, and while Terry ghts the notion of a new romance, her daughters — Andy (Erika Christensen), Hadley (Alicia Witt), Emily (Keri Russell), and Lavender (Evan Rachel Wood) — have different ideas. Be Cool Gangster-turned-movie producer Chili played by John Travolta has grown tired of the screen trade, especially after his latest project turned out to be a boxof ce op. Chili is looking for new horizons and thinks he may have found his niche when his close friend Tommy Athens (James Woods), a fellow mobster who runs an independent record label, is murdered by Russian gangsters. Chili takes over Athens’ record company and begins courting Tommy’s girlfriend, Edie (Uma Thurma). Edie is an experienced hand in record production, and together she and Chili spot what would seem to be the ideal act for their label — Linda Moon (Christina Milian), a beautiful young woman with a powerhouse voice. Linda is stuck, however, in a going-nowhere R&B trio managed by the monumentally sleazy Raji (Vince Vaughn). Chili isn’t much concerned about Linda’s contract with Raji, but Raji certainly is, and the manager soon takes out a contract on Chili with the same Russian hoods who killed Tommy. Soon Chili is facing all the action he can handle between the Russian gunmen, a music mogul named Nick Carr (Harvey Keitel) who wants Chili to stay out of the business, and Sin LaSalle (Cedric the Entertainer), a successful hip-hop producer who wants Chili to pay him the $300,000 he is owed by Tommy.The following 26 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.

There’s always a sense of renewal. I also really enjoy the journey, itself, to the new location--it’s always an adventure,” Karen said. She added that there aren’t any tricks to a successful change of station. “Don’t focus on the possible negatives. I know God has a plan for my life, so I nd myself thinking, “Okay, God. What do you have in store for me this time?”” From a practical standpoint, whenever possible, Karen tries to get a oor plan for the quarters to which she’s moving. “If we are making a “full house” move, I will make a sketch of each room, showing where each piece of furniture is going to be placed in the new house. I will tape the sketch in the doorway of the room, for the movers to know where to place things as we’re moving in. When the movers are packing your items, stick a sign on each room, giving each room a name,” she said. She added that it’s a good idea to make sure that name, such as ‘Andy’s room,’ is on each box packed from that room. “As hard as it is, when that truck pulls away with your “stuff,” remind yourself that is all it is--stuff. And as soon as you arrive at your new location start making a place for yourself--get involved,” she said. Even after more than 30 moves, Karen is open to options, “I think I’d like to live in Ireland. I’ve never been there, but the countryside is so beautiful.”
