Wednesday, Sept. 7, 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.

Printed circulation: 2,000The Kwajalein HourglassCommanding Of cer.......COL Beverly StipeEditor...............................Nell Drumheller Assistant Editor......................Mig Owens Graphics Designer....................Dan Adler Reporter............................Elizabeth Davie Circulation........................Will O'Connell Commentary Another challenge to faceSaturday is the fourth anniversary of 9/11. The memory of that day had faded in many American minds, but the disaster of Katrina brings similar pictures. The TV images of people wandering around in a daze and agonizing because they donÂ’t know where their loved ones are and if they are alive is like seeing New Yorkers looking for family members after the towers fell.In New Orleans, Mississippi and Alabama, folks stand with photos of their families asking if anyone has seen them, just as people did after 9/11. ItÂ’s all too hauntingly familiar. But this time, there are no terrorists to blame and be enraged at. It was the strong hand of nature showing us how puny and impotent we are against such a force. It also showed how unprepared the country is for such a great catastrophe. God help us if terrorists ever set off a dirty bomb or chemical agents in one of our cities. 9/11 showed some of the best virtues mankind has such as the remen and police of cers racing into the twin towers to try to save lives and ordinary people risking their lives to save others. With the exception of a very few who chose to take advantage of the situation to loot and commit crimes, the vast majority of the people in New Orleans and all along the Gulf Coast showed incredible patience and calm as they waited much too long for help to come.I just canÂ’t understand how anyone could shoot at helicopters that were trying to rescue people. By doing that, hundreds may have died that otherwise could have been saved if rescue teams werenÂ’t afraid to venture into those areas. Thankfully, troops have arrived and the security situation is under control. The conduct of those private citizens who went out in their boats when the danger was still greatest to rescue people from their ooded homes evoked memories of the bravery of 9/11. The patience and forbearance of those people at the Superdome and who were stranded on overpasses, who had just lost everything they had, was amazing. The doctors and nurses who stayed in the New Orleans hospitals as the situation grew more and more dire are heroes beyond measure. Americans are great people. Something like 200 million dollars has been raised through private donations so far. The people of Texas have welcomed the displaced of Katrina with open arms, proving once again they have hearts as big as their state. Other states have now followed their example and are taking in a lot of the victims.What can be said about the military? When they nally arrived, their professionalism, dedication and the ability to get things done was displayed for all the world to see. The response was much too slow, but when it came, it was great and is still ongoing.But what a tragedy this is for the whole country. The damage to our economy will be felt for years to come, IÂ’m afraid. The soaring gas and oil prices are just the tip of the iceberg. How many billions of dollars will it take to rebuild New Orleans, Biloxi and other devastated towns? How long will displaced people be without homes or jobs? If any nation can recover from this disaster, itÂ’s America. No people in the world respond to challenges better than Americans. But we have a War on Terror, a costly war in Iraq and now this. How much more can the country afford?More than 70 nations have offered help. Even a country as poor as Sri Lanka has offered $25,000 in aid. Some not-toofriendly countries have offered help also. I hope our government is not too proud to take the aid that has been offered. We need all we can get right now. Americans have given much to the world. We have been the most generous nation on earth. It would be nice to see other nations remember that now.


Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3 3Vets’ Hall break-in causes severedamage, KPD investigating crime Bechtel matching employee contributionsfor benefit of Hurricane Katrina victims Hourglass reportsBechtel, one of Kwajalein Range Services’ parent companies, has established a link to match employee donations to the American Red Cross’ hurricane relief efforts. As an incentive, if employee donations to the Red Cross exceed Bechtel’s $250,000 donation to the American Red Cross’ Disaster Relief Fund for the 2005 hurricane season, Bechtel will increase its gift to match the employee total, up to $500,000. Contributions may be made online using a credit card or by mailing a printed form along with a check by Sept. 15. The Red Cross will provide Bechtel with the total amount donated through this special site: https: // Donation?ACTION=SHOW_DONATION_OPTIONS&CA. Employees are welcome to donate to another reputable charitable organization of their choice; however, Bechtel will be able to track and offer the possible increased match to only those donations made online or via check through the special Bechtel American Red Cross Web site. Donations already placed for hurricane relief to the Red Cross or another relief organization by Tuesday also qualify toward the possible increased match. Employees must use the matching gift form, copies of which are available at the KRS presidents’ of ce, Building 1036, by Sept.15 to submit the information on your donation. “Bechtel employees are always generous in time of need, and we know you will be responsive to the massive relief efforts now under way throughout the southern part of our country,” Jude Laspa, Bechtel Deputy Chief Operating of cer, said in an e-mail message. By Mig Owens Assistant editorA break-in at the American Legion Post 44 Veteran’s Hall, Building 976, estimated to have occurred sometime after 9 p.m. Aug. 31 resulted in what of cials say is the most extensive damage at the facility to date. The facility damage was discovered at approximately 6 p.m. Friday. Among the damage is a large plate-glass window thought to be broken by concrete block to gain entrance, damage to the bar surface, of ce manager’s door smashed, hardware broken, and major damage to a locked le cabinet, according to Dennis O’Connell, commander-elect of American Legion Post 44. “The burglar(s) seemed to think something of value was contained in the le cabinet,” O’Connell said, adding that possibly one six-pack of Bud Lite beer was stolen, evidenced by one empty can found on the oor and several unopened cans found outside. Moses Moreno, Kwajalein Police Department senior investigator, said, “It is undetermined if anything was stolen until a complete inventory is conducted. An investigation was initiated in an attempt to identify possible suspect(s). At this time, no suspects have been identi ed.” Post 44 members cleaned up and Kwajalein Range Services Construction secured the building. O’Connell said the damage is estimated at from $2,000 to $3,000. An analysis of security of the building is underway. “There have been other break-ins that caused damage with no loss of property, but the damage has never been this extensive,” O’Connell said. “We are very disappointed that the facility, which has been popular with all segments of the community, would be attacked in this manner.” O’Connell said the post believes that the motivation for this break-in, as well as earlier break-ins, may have been to steal cash. “This is very unfortunate since never more than a nominal amount of cash is ever left in the building,” he explained. “We would ask that anyone with information about this matter contact KPD. We hope that this crime will be solved quickly and that the community at large will share our outrage that acts like this could be committed on Kwajalein.” There are approximately 40 dues-paying members in Post 44. The primary purposes of the American Legion are to advance patriotism and to assist veterans of United States Armed Forces. Post 44 has adopted the additional purpose of providing college scholarship funds for seniors at the Kwajalein High School and to support other civic activities. KPD is asking the community to assist in providing any information regarding this incident by calling the department’s investigation section at 54403, 54433 or 54447. All information received will be kept con dential. “As added information, a similar incident of this nature occurred at the Vet’s Hall in the last 90 days,” Moreno said. “The investigation section would like your help in solving this malicious crime.”Unfortunate incident

Young and not-so-young enjoy the surf.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Residents take to the beach for the Labor Day festivities on Monday. Michael Moore, 5, and Ian Goldsmith, 6, enjoy playing in the sand. The Sandcastle building contest was a popular event with Kwajalein children. Shaun Brady, 11, and Tyler Decosder, 11, relax in their race car made of sand. Their creation took rst place.


Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 Kwajalein hospital laboratory met accreditation standards in AugustSpending wisely PTO approves budget for new year Hourglass reportsOn Aug. 24 the George Seitz Elementary School PTO held its rst public meeting of the new school year. The major item on the agenda was the new budget. “I knew this would be the longest meeting of the year, simply because of the changes that our board was proposing,” said Bonnie Compton, PTO president. One of the items added was a $3,000 resource fund for Academic Excellence to be spent on items that will enrich the education experience at the GSE and are not to be used on items that are Kwajalein Range Services contractual obligations according to Compton. “We want our kids to become lifelong learners and to enjoy it every step of the way,” explained Compton. PTO members approved $500 to be spent on balls and other playground equipment for the upper elementary grades. Funds were set aside to cover one month of milk for students in the Guest Student Lunch program. Compton said that drinks are not provided with the lunches purchased by donors through this program. The PTO needs volunteers to construct displays and/or hands-on experiments for the annual Math/ Science Exploratorium Sept. 15-17. “With as many scientists as there are on Kwajalein, we should be able to have an incredible event for the children,” Compton said. Kwajalein Hospital releaseEffective in August Kwajalein Hospital met all criteria for laboratory accreditation by the Commission on Of ce Laboratory Accreditation, a national healthcare accreditation organization. Accreditation is only given to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of pro ciency testing and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. COLA is approved by the federal government and sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians and the American Osteopathic Association.Accreditation renewal takes place every two years. Chief Medical Of cer Dr. Eric Lindborg said, “The current renewal is an endorsement of excellence in the quality of local laboratory services. It also represents a tribute to the hard work and vision of Laboratory Supervisor Sandra Clark who PCS’s in the next few days. She has maintained unrelenting focus on the day-to-day details that nally sum up to lab results that are consistent, reliable and available as on-call services to the Kwajalein community 24 hours per day. The entire lab staff deserves important credit for its dedication and continued support of these national standards.” He added, “There are special challenges in providing lab services in this remote site. Because of our isolation Kwaj lab personnel are required to do far more than would be expected for a community hospital of similar size in the U.S. As a physician it is tremendously assuring to know that I can depend on locally generated results with the same level of con dence as would be given to a stateside lab.”COLA, completing more than 33,000 laboratory surveys, is the premier clinical laboratory education, consultation and accreditation organization. It is an independent accredited organization whose practical, educational standards have a positive and immediate impact. Services enable clinical laboratories and staff to meet U.S. Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments and other regulatory requirements, act in accordance with quality systems and provide the best possible patient care. More information about COLA accreditation services and standards may be found at Compton thanked students of both the elementary and high school for donating school supplies for a project to support Ebeye schools at the end of the last school year. She said that enough supplies were collected and sorted to ll a van and that the supplies were delivered to Ebeye in August. Compton described the meeting as “an excellent exchange of ideas, views and opinions. We, the PTO board, want everyone who attends the meetings to feel needed, wanted and valued. It is essential for the success of our students, parents, teachers and community.” For more information on the PTO contact Compton at 52415 or by e-mail at
