Saturday, Aug. 6, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 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. The Kwajalein Hourglass is an authorized publication for military personnel, federal employees, contractor workers and their families assigned to USAKA. Contents of the Hourglass are not necessarily of cial views of, or endorsed by, the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Department of the Army or USAKA. It is published Wednesdays and Saturdays in accordance with Army Regulation 360-1 and using a network printer by Kwajalein Range Services editorial staff, P.O. Box 23, APO AP 96555.

Commentary See TAKEOUT, Page 16The island names of Jaluit and Mili were misspelled in Wednesday’s article on the Nimitz’ strategy. The Hourglass regrets the error.“Computers are the devil,” said a friend of mine one day.I laughed and said that was for sure, thinking about all the times I said bad words to my computer when it would crash, ruining hours worth of work, or nding some other way to get my blood pressure to squirt out of my ears. But the more I thought about his statement, the more I didn’t nd it all that amusing. I recently saw an article (I read a lot when I’m supposed to be working) about Web sites that are directed at young teenage girls promoting anorexia and bulimia.These sites teach girls how to starve themselves and how to hide the signs of starvation from their parents and friends. I wondered how such sites can be allowed, but then I just stopped and thought about that. There are sites on the Internet that will actually teach terrorist skills such as bomb making, how to build homemade guns and other deadly weapons. Then there are the sites that spew hatred of blacks, gays, lesbians, Jews, Christians and on and on. And of course there are the sites that Islamic terror groups use to boast of their killing of innocent people. And for a change of pace, there are the ‘chat’ rooms into which sexual predators can lure children. I read somewhere that something like 75 percent of the sites on the Internet are porn sites. Isn’t that a really good use of Internet technology? I’m not what you would call computer savvy. I know how to turn one on and then scream at it when it doesn’t do what I want it to. But isn’t there a way to police the Internet? The answer to that question is apparently not. It’s not easy to swallow, but the First Amendment protects hate sites, porn sites and the sites that tell young girls how to starve themselves to death. The trash that run these sites hide behind freedom of speech. The only people who can control what children get into on the Internet are their parents.We are lucky on Kwajalein since we have lters on the public Internet and that helps prevent children from getting into sites they shouldn’t be on.But like everything in the computer world, the people who want your children to see stuff gure out a way to get around lters, rewalls and all the other guards that are supposed to prevent it. Children are sometimes lured into porn sites or chat rooms by going to a site that looks like a children’s site such as popular children’s movies or cartoons. Then, when they are in the site, they see images of porn or are lured into a chat room. Parents might think they know what their children are doing, but there’s no way they can watch their child 24 hours a day. Besides, a lot of children know more about computers than their parents do and they can get around safeguards if they want to. Parents need to know what signs to look for that could mean their child is involved in anorexia or with an online predator or other behavior that might mean they’re in trouble.Don’t forget, even if you check the history to see where your child has been, some of these sites don’t appear to be what they really are. You would actually have to go into them to see if they are legitimate sites. Parents tell their children not to talk to strangers on the street. These days they need to be told not to do it online.It may not be much of a problem on Kwajalein, but eventually, children on the island will go back to the real world.Like it or hate it, the Internet is here to stay and will probably always be unregulated, so parents are the rst and last line of defense. By Nell M. Drumheller EditorNew takeout procedures at Caf Paci c, Caf Roi and Caf Meck go into effect on Tuesday. “The KRS [Kwajalein Range Services] dining services team under the leadership of Steve Cummings is dealing with an admittedly challenging issue,” said Kevin Finn, vice president/deputy program manager, Community Activities. He added that the take-out meals are a service that ‘To-go’ changes e xplained, more info in online FAQsisland residents clearly enjoy and that he and his staff have been getting a lot of good comments from residents concerning the change. Beginning on Tuesday there will be a $2 charge for takeout meals and the meals will be packaged by Dining Services personnel. Finn and his staff have developed a Frequently Asked Questions document.

Step 4...Wear right. Use both shoulder straps – snug, but not too tight. Use the waist strap, if one exists, to help position the backpack over your hips. Dan Frazier, Kwajalein school superintendent, also suggests that students store backpacks in their bicycle basket on the ride to and from school. “Wearing a backpack raises the center of gravity for a child and increases the chance for accident or injury,” Frazier said. He added that the number of books handled by older children with mature muscles and bone structure differs from the number smaller children can handle, encouraging parents to monitor backpack loads. Parents can also help by prioritizing what is carried in a child’s backpack to eliminate unnecessary items and by teaching children to evenly distribute the backpack’s contents. “Parents need to practice what they preach,” added Moore, who says that he’s seen many instances where backpacks worn by adults are slung over one shoulder. “Younger kids have growing spines and are at risk, but anyone with a backpack is vulnerable to back-related injuries,” Moore said, calling them a “tax on backs.” Moore tells his own children, “Unless you’re studying every subject that night, don’t bring all your books home.” If there is no alternative to lugging numerous books, Moore advises them to carrying some under their arm. Children also have a responsibility to let parents know about back and neck pain, Moore said. Pain is a signal from your body telling you something is wrong, he said, adding that that’s when it’s time to see your healthcare provider. “Backpack responsibility rests with children and parents,” Moore said. Backpack weight needs to be monitored12 pounds in an average child’s backpack X 10 lifts per day 120 pounds per day x 180 days per school year 21,600 pounds lifted in one school year (equivalent to 11 tons)“Heavy” math Backpacks should not exceed the recommended weight shown. Student Allison Tomas prepares to head off to school with her backpack.Mig Owens Assistant editorWith the start of the school year, backpacks in every size, shape and color accompany students wherever they go. Though backpacks are a convenience most wouldn’t want to do without, improper use can lead to spinal injuries. Approximately 4,928 emergency room visits each year are attributed to overloaded and incorrectly worn backpacks, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Studies also show that children are experiencing an increase in spinal distress, postural misalignments, and conditions that put them at risk for disc herniation. Mike Moore, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Installation Safety officer, says that backpacks themselves are safe; it’s the load and how you wear them that make the difference. “Improperly carrying the backpack can cause problems from the get go,” Moore said. “Backpacks should be supported by both shoulder straps and adjusted properly.” Preventing injury is something parents and children can work at together. According to Backpack Safety America, the following guidelines can help. Step 1 ...Choose right. Be sure to select a backpack that is sturdy and appropriately sized. Padded shoulders and waist straps are a plus. Step 2 ...Pack right. The maximum weight of the loaded backpack should not exceed 15 percent of the wearer’s body weight. See Backpack Safety America’s weight guidelines below. If the wearer is forced to arch forward, the backpack is too heavy. Step 3...Lift right. Face the backpack, bend at the knees, use two hands and check the weight. Then lift with the legs and apply one shoulder strap then the

Balian is approached by Godfrey of Ibelin (Liam Neeson), a fabled knight who has brie y returned home after serving in the East. Godfrey informs Balian that he is his true father, and urges the blacksmith to join him as he and his forces journey to Jerusalem to help defend the holy city. Balian accepts, and he and Godfrey arrive during the lull between the Second and Third Crusades, in which the city is enjoying a fragile peace. Both Christian and Muslim forces are temporarily in retreat, thanks to the wisdom of the Christian king Baldwin IV (Edward Norton), his secondin-command Tiberias (Jeremy Irons), and Muslim potentate Saladin (Ghassan Massoud). Violent agitators on both sides are foolishly eager to end the peace in a bid for greater power, and Saladin bows to pressures from Muslim factions; Godfrey is one of a handful of brave knights who has thrown his allegiance behind Baldwin IV and his community of diversity, and Balian joins him as they use their skills as warriors in a bid to build a lasting peace. Kingdon of Heaven also stars Eva Green as the princess Sibylla, David Thewlis as Hospitaler the priest, and Brendan Gleeson as Reynald. Kicking and Screaming ,Immaturity and poor sportsmanship once again nd their rmly established place in children’s athletics (at least among the adults) in this sports comedy. Phil Weston (Will Ferrell) is a tightly wound suburban father who had a competitive streak worn into him by his father, Buck (Rober Duvall), who never seemed to feel that his son measured up. When Phil’s son joins a Little League soccer team, Phil signs on as coach, only to learn that Buck — who also has a ten-year-old son these days — will be coaching a team in the same league. Determined to show his father he can do the job, Phil impresses upon his young charges that winning is the only important thing, and soon gains a few enemies as he humiliates not only the kids on his own team, but their opponents as well. Directed by Jesse Dylan, Kicking and Screaming also features Kate Walsh and legendary football coach Mike Ditka.The following 33 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.

The rst day of school will be Friday. According to Dan Frazier, school superintendent, orientation for Kindergarten will be at 3 p.m. on Thursday at the elementary school in Rooms 26 and 27. Elementary school students are invited into their teachers’ classrooms starting at 2:30 p.m. Thursday to meet their new teachers and unload their supplies in their desks. “We are looking forward to an exciting year. We have new school improvement goals that we will be implementing. The high school will renew emphasis on research skills, and the elementary is implementing a new ‘literacy laboratory’ to boost student reading performance,” Frazier said. Teacher assignments will be received through mail. “Enrollment has uctuated a great deal for the coming year with all the families moving on and off the island. Currently at the elementary, our numbers are stable for the coming year to maybe up by four students. We are anticipating 236 students K-6, compared with 232 last year,” he added. According to Steve Howell, high school principal, there will be an orientation for the seventh graders and their parents at 7 p.m. on Thursday in the multipurpose room to assist the students with the transition from grade school to junior high school. “This is different than past years when we held parent and student meeting separately,” Howell said. There will also be a “Back to School Night” at 7 p.m. on Aug. 19 in the MP Room. This is for parents and students to walk through their classes and meet the teachers. “I am looking forward to another great year; we have a great bunch of kids, great staff and a bunch of parents who want to be involved in their child’s education. It should be a great year,” Howell said. Any questions can be addressed to Howell at 52011. S c h o o l o r i e n t a t i o n s s c h e d u l e d School orientations scheduledResponses1.doc .Finn said the purpose of the document is to share the comments with the community to help residents better understand the restraints KRS is dealing with, as well as to clarify how the new program will work. Three of the issues covered in the FAQ document are: 1. Q: Having meals provided by the Paci c Dining Room is one of the bene ts of our contract that we shouldn’t have to pay extra for if we want to eat someplace other than the PDR. A: Meals in the Caf Paci c, Caf Roi and/or Caf Meck are guaranteed by most employment agreements for unaccompanied assignments – typical wording reads “Meals are provided without charge for unaccompanied Employees when assigned housing lacks adequate food preparation facilities. Any unaccompanied or accompanied employee residing in a house or trailer will not be authorized a meal card.” Our contract Performance Work Statement charters buffet-style service in existing dining rooms. Preserving a compliant takeout option for resident convenience will drive costs for labor and material in excess of what our contract requires, hence the need for an administrative fee ($2 per meal). We believe this vastly preferable to discontinuing the service entirely. 2. Q: How will a fee of $2 x sanitation problems when people still serve themselves on the buffet? A: Our PWS requires buffet-style self-serve meals be provided. It is recognized that certain risks exist from this practice, and we continually educate our patrons and employees on processes crucial to maintaining safety of all. Contrasting with the buffet service, takeout service is not chartered in our PWS and is speci cally prohibited by food safety regulations. This change will greatly improve food safety compliance and lower overall risks of our operations. 3. Q: During times when boxed meals are delivered to work a reas and charged to meal card holders, will there be a $2 charge? A: If such meals are determined necessary to mission needs (i.e., with approved ration request), there will be no administrative charge.
