It was one of those days. A friend of mine recently PCS’d before he could sell his boat. He asked me if I would sign for his boat and help him sell it. In the meantime, he encouraged me to use it. So, I decided to take it out for a ride. I’ve never owned a boat before, so this was kind of a thrill, like the rst time you got to drive your own car or moved into your rst apartment. The novelty was intriguing and heady. I had moved up in the world from boat renter to boat owner, a very special class of humanity.I invited a couple of friends to go shing in a “private boat” free from the restrictions of the B-boat range, free from the con ning hours of the small boat marina, free from the signup book of available boats. We’re in a private boat now! This also meant we were free from the services of the marina, like a full tank of gas, ready maintenance support, and, oh yeah, we had to put the boat in the water. When all the B-boats had long since left the harbor, we were sitting in line with other private boats waiting our turn at the pump. While we were there, we saw a large turtle wave at us and gured this was an excellent sign for our shing trip. We traveled well beyond the B-boat range all the way up to Legan (how adventurous), got into a bird pile and picked up … nothing. We decided to venture out, far away from the reef hoping to spot a large school of ahi. We did nd a small school of aku and picked up a couple. We decided to head south. Just past south pass and behind Carlson (very much in B-boat range) was the huge school of ahi we were looking for. 15 pounders, 30 pounders, a couple of 60 pounders ying out of the water that was foaming with bait sh covered in blackbirds. We struck the mother load. Because we were in a private boat, we could sh here all day.After three long hours of working that school that was so thick that birds hit our lines multiple times and sh were leaping so much we thought one might land in the boat, we had one aku. We did have a yellow n for a few minutes, but he brushed us off. The entire afternoon reminded me of high school when the prettiest girl in class talks to you in a very friendly way and means absolutely nothing by it. It’s just a tease.Finally, we turned towards SAR pass. I was dejected, upset, frustrated but I was still in a private boat which meant that in addition to having hardly any sh in the cooler, I would need to haul the boat out of the water, drag it down to the boat house, clean it, ush the engines and put away all the gear. Then it hit me. Why am I so upset? I spent a magni cent day on the beautiful, tropical, calm Paci c Ocean with good friends in a private boat shing. We saw a marvelous display of God’s glorious creation and I walk away disappointed because I don’t have sashimi? That’s silly. It was an epiphany of perspective. We love to complain and murmur about our half lled glass and miss the refreshment of the half dozen glasses that are lled to over owing. Well, the boat is sold so I’m back in line for a B-boat, but any chance I have to look out on this glorious corner of creation in the company of good friends, I’ll do it with a smile because that’s what it’s about and I will try to refrain from saying, “I’ve learned my lesson Lord, can I have my yellow n now?”To people who don't use the hand sanitizer at CafŽ Paci c before getting in the food line and who don't take food trays to the dishwashing area. To the teenagers who helped clean up the Richardson Theater after the Star Warsmovie Saturday night. Without your help, the theater would have been a sorry mess because of litter bugs.


S a t ur d ay, A u g 27 2005 Th e K wa j a l e i n H our gl as s 3 No loose lips Hospital employees committed tokeeping medical records confidentialBy Nell M. Drumheller EditorEmployees of the Kwajalein Hospital complete annual training to make sure they know how to keep medical information con dential. According to Beth Turnbaugh, hospital administrator, each medical service employee signs a con dentiality commitment when they start work and annually after that. Failure to live up to the con dentiality commitment may lead to discipline up to termination of employment. An exception to the medical con dentiality policy is if a patient has an illness or disease that has a bearing on community health. Those cases are reported to the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll and Kwajalein Range Services leadership. Turnbaugh said that such information is limited to general details that do not provide patient identification. Examples of such illness might be cholera or other diseases that are associated with epidemics. Other conditions that have a bearing on the security of USAKA may be reported but identity of individuals would not be divulged unless there is an established understanding with the affected individual that this will take place or identifying the patient is necessary to prevent imminent serious harm to the patient or others. Turnbaugh stated that the only people who have access to medical information are those who are required to assess and document the medical condition and generate needed billing documents. This may range from a single clinician to a receptionist/nurse/ physician/medical records person/billing department/ workers comp/quality assurance personnel. Disclosure or release of patient health care information to anyone else requires patient consent. According to hospital of cials, individuals who want portions of their medical record placed in a separate secure le may request that this be done. All employee assistance plan encounters with Marion Ruf ng are privileged and records may only be released with patient consent or as required by law (for example under a court order). Medical information confidentiality at the Kwajalein Hospital mimics that of a community hospital. “Although it may not be fully applicable here on Kwajalein, the hospital follows the standards established under HIPAA [the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act] as its standard of performance,” Turnbaugh said. She added that con dentiality is expected to be the same as would usually be expected from a community hospital in the states. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie) PromotionMaj.

Saturday, Aug. 27, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 By Elizabeth Davie Reporter S ometimes not everyone’s schedule ts well with the hours of Caf Paci c. Bachelor Quarter residents may have more options than they think. Just because the rooms are not equipped with ovens and stoves does not make cooking impossible. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Regulation 210-50 states only approved cooking appliances will be allowed for use in Unaccompanied Personal Housing buildings and transient quarters. Microwave ovens, air convection ovens without exposed heating coils, coffee pots, crock pots, pop-up toasters, slow cookers (including rice and “hot air” cookers) and bread makers are approved. Other electric cooking appliances are prohibited. Appliances with open heating elements (e.g., hot plates, toaster ovens, or electric frying pans/ woks) may be con scated and retained for evidentiary purposes. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture microwave ovens are safe to use for defrosting, reheating and coo king. However, cold spots can occur in microwaved foods because of the irregular way the microwaves enter the oven and are absorbed by the food. If food does not cook evenly, bacteria may survive and cause food-borne illness. Techniques to minimize the cold s pots include stirring and rotating the food once or twice during microwaving, arranging foods uniformly in a covered dish, and turning large foods upside down during cooking. Crock pots cook foods slowly at a low temperature generally between 170 and 280 F. According to the USDA, the direct heat from the crock pot, lengthy cooking, and steam created within the tightly-covered container combine to destroy bacteria and make a crock pot a safe process for cooking foods. Here are a few microwave and crock pot recipes with ingredients that can usually be found at Surfway. BQ cooking can be fun, easy, utilize many different foods G o o d f o o d i s Good food is s p i c e o f l i f e spice of life

Saturday, Aug. 27, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassA construction crew prepares the site for a new Digital Airport Surveillance Radar near Building 900. Radar to increase air traffic safety at Bucholz Army Airfield 6 By Mig Owens Assistant editorThe addition of radar, called ASR-11 or Digital Airport Surveillance Radar, between the fixed-wing hangar and Building 900 is the result of an effort by the National Airspace System to upgrade Federal Aviation Administration and Department of Defense air elds worldwide. Kwajalein’s system is one of 238 being installed by the DoD and FAA, according to Bob Eades, who’s job it is to oversee construction for the Army, represent the Program Management Office and act as point of contact for the PMO on the DASR program. Other nearby sites affected are two systems on Maui, Hawaii and one in Guam, among others, Eades explained. According to Chief Warrant Of cer Steve Simpson, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll government flight representative, the radar should be up and running next summer and will provide “greatly increased capabilities in directing and keeping air traffic safe, avoiding midair collisions and bad weather avoidance.” The purpose of this program is to modernize the Air Traf c System, Eades explained. “This is to not only update the NAS, but to replace the aging FPN-66/A that is currently installed on Kwajalein and other Army air elds worldwide,” Eades said. “One of the significant impacts of this program will be to increase the availability of the system due to system redundancy and lowered annual cost of operation to the command.” T h e r e s n o t h i n g There s nothing l i k e a g o o d b o o k like a good book!

Saturday, Aug. 27, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7 By Nell M. Drumheller EditorSafety experts from Bechtel Systems Infrastructure, Inc. are conducting training on Kwajalein and Roi-Namur this week, which includes course work in Safety Leadership and People-Based Safety. John Mathis, BSII Environmental, Safety and Health manager and Dave Allen, BSII Safety Support manager are conducting the workshops. Approximately 170 people are in the classes. “One class is a Safety Leadership Workshop,” said Richard Nugent, Kwajalein Range Services ES&H manager. The day-long class covers fundamentals of managing safety within an organization. “It is primarily aimed at management, from the President to the foreman level. Attendees identify areas for improvement and commit to a personal action plan for improvement,” he said. Another course offered is the twohour Safety Leadership Workshop Refresher. “This class is a refresher course for those that have previously attended the full workshop. Attendees focus on a brush up of fundamentals and assess progress made concerning actions planned during their workshop attendance,” Nugent added. The third class is the People-Based Safety Train the Trainer course. This course is between 30 and 40 hours long and teaches participants how to establish and maintain a PeopleBased Safety process. “The PBS process is designed to involve all employees in safety,” Nugent said. KRS has the goal of a zero accident safety program and through the PBS course, employees are taught to analyze potential and past accident behavior-related causes, observe fellow employees performing work, and assess and provide feedback concerning safe and unsafe or at-risk behavior related to the work being performed. Nugent said that data collected from these observations is collected and analyzed by the employees. The purpose of the analysis is to identify potential unsafe behavior trends and implement actions to eliminate that behavior. “In our efforts to improve safety and the drive to zero accidents, employee involvement is critical to success. People Based Safety is a key tool in getting employees involved,” Nugent said. Nugent added “KRS has made many improvements in our safety processes and our accident rate is one measure of success from these improvements.” Vigilance is key to a successful program and a safe workplace. “However, we cannot become complacent with our success and we must continue to seek ways to continually improve. These courses provide us with tools whereby we can make these improvements. Safety Leadership Workshop teaches us to focus on management behaviors and expectations to lead the safety effort. PBS provides us with an excellent process to have employees directly involved in making safety improvements. These opportunities, along with our remaining efforts, help to keep us on the path to zero accidents,” he said. Nugent is optimistic about the outcome of the training. “These courses provide us with new tools and help to keep focused on behaviors that will help us grow and improve our safety performance,” he said. He added, “Someone once said: ‘if we keep on doing what we have done, doing it the same way we have been doing it, we will always get what we have always gotten.’ By ‘doing things differently, we will only get better.’ Safety experts conducttraining on Kwaj, Roi 1-5 p.m., Sept. 5, at Emon Beach* 1-5 p.m., Mobile kitchen ** 1-5 p.m., Kayak rides **1-3:30 p.m., Bounce house * 2:30 p.m., Sandcastle building contest Bob Nixon s Magic & Comedy show for children, live in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room. 7 p.m., Sept. 3 2 p.m., Sept. 4

(Tradewinds Theater on Roi is now showing movies)A Lot Like Love Two friends who’ve convinced themselves they would never make a good couple discover they might just be wrong in this romantic comedy. Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) and Emily (Amanda Peet) rst met when they were college students sharing a ight from California to New York; Emily spontaneously seduced Oliver on the plane, and they spent the next few days together in the city. When they parted, however, Emily decided not to pursue a relationship with Oliver, even though he was obviously interested. Over the next several years, circumstances kept putting them in one another’s paths, and over the years Oliver and Emily became close friends and con dantes. Both are still certain, though, that they’re entirely wrong for each other on a romantic level. However, after nearly a decade, with both Oliver and Emily edging into their thirties, they begin to wonder if they’ve allowed a great opportunity to pass them by. A Lot Like Love also stars Kathryn Hahn, Ali Larter, and Kal Penn. Star Wars: Episode III, George Lucas draws the Star Wars lm series to a close with this dark sci adventure which sets the stage for the events of the rst lm and brings the saga full circle. After a erce battle in which Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor) and Anakin (Hayden Christensen) join Republic forces to help free Chancellor Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) from the evil Count Dooku (Christopher Lee) and his minions, Anakin is drawn into Palpatine’s con dence. Palpatine has designs on expanding his rule, and with this in mind he plants seeds of doubt in Anakin’s mind about the strength and wisdom of the Jedis. Anakin is already in a quandary about how to reveal to others the news of his secret marriage to Padm Amidala (Natalie Portman) now that she is pregnant, and visions which foretell her death in childbirth weigh heavy on his mind. As Anakin nds himself used by both the Jedis and the Republic for their own purposes — particularly after Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) expresses his distrust of the young Jedi — he turns more and more to the Force for help, but begins to succumb to the temptations of its dark side. Many of the Star Wars series regulars returned for Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, including Frank Oz as the voice of Yoda, Kenny Baker as R2-D2, and Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca.The following 20 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.

The Kwajalein Scuba ClubÂ’s September LCM trip to Oceanside Bigej Monday is full, however, standby names are still being taking by trip coordinator Doug Hepler. Divers are ask to be at the tank house no later than 7 a.m. Monday in preparation for loading the LCM at 7:30 a.m. Participants who have never been on a KSC LCM trip need to be aware that the club dive masters are in charge of the dive and have the nal say on diving safety and dive location. If the wind and surf do not cooperate, the chief dive master will make the call to go to a backup location. For this dive, the backup location will be the West Reef. Everyone must sign a release waiver and sign in sheet before boarding the LCM. Once the LCM reaches the boat ramp, club equipment, outhouse, ice chests, oxygen and safety kits are loaded rst. Everyone is expected to assist in this operation. Only after all club gear is on board will the dive master in charge announce the LCM is ready for passengers boarding. Once on board, Dive Masters will assist with where to store your gear. Roll call will be taken prior to departure. On the way to the dive site, the dive masters will conduct a pre-dive brie ng and explain how the events of the day will unfold. KSC will have plenty of water and sodas on board with sandwiches for lunch. If you would like to bring snacks and a small ice chest, please do so. DonÂ’t forget sunscreen! The two most important things about this trip are being safe and having fun! If you have any questions please contact Doug Hepler, Bill Williamson or Corey Wiley.
