When I lived in the states, I watched many ghts on television or at pay-per-view events. My favorite ghter, and the one I most admired, was Ray Mancini. ManciniÂ’s father, Lenny, was a topranked contender who was in line to ght for the world championship when Pearl Harbor happened and he went off to war. He was severely wounded and that ended his chance of being a champion. Young Ray saw his father devastated by the loss of his dream and although he really didnÂ’t want to be a ghter, he became determined to see it full lled. So he went to a gym at a tender age and began training. He went on to have a good amateur record. He caught the eye of promoters and turned professional. His hard, quick punching style earned him the nickname of Â‘Boom Boom.Â’ He fought his way up through the ranks and nally got his shot at the world title. He fought a much experienced Alexis Arguello and although he gave a good account of himself, the champion beat him in 14 rounds. Mancini was crushed at the loss, but he was determined to keep going. Within six months, he had fought his way back to another title ght, this time against Arturo Frias. In the rst round, Frias caught Mancini with a quick combination. Mancini was rocked, his knees buckled and he staggered back against the ropes. Frias closed in and rained blows on Mancini, opening a terrible cut above RayÂ’s eyebrow. It looked like it was all over. And it was only 15 seconds into the round. Dazed, half-blinded from the blood pouring into his eye, Mancini reached down deep inside and found determination and the will to win. He fought back and pushed Frias to the center of the ring, hit him with a crushing right hand and Frias went down. The referee stopped the ght and the Mancini family nally had a world champion. ManciniÂ’s whole boxing career was like that. He could be bloodied, his face puffed and swollen, but he would never quit. He was a bulldog that just kept coming. In his last title ght, when he was no longer what he used to be, his opponent was beating him badly. As he sat in his corner at the end of a round, he yelled at the referee, Â“DonÂ’t you dare stop this ght.Â” I was on Emon Beach Sunday night for the Kwajalein Scuba ClubÂ’s tribute to 9/11 heroes. After I listened to the speeches, heard the strains of Â“Amazing GraceÂ” played on bagpipes and saw all those divers go into the water, I thought of how Ray ManciniÂ’s story and AmericaÂ’s story are a lot alike. Our forefathers didnÂ’t really want to ght a war, but they had a dream of freedom and the only way to achieve it was to defeat the best army in the world at that time. So thatÂ’s what they did. America rose from the ashes and hatred of the Civil War to form a new nation that was united and stronger. She overcame the misery of the Great Depression to become the worldÂ’s most powerful economy. America threw off the disaster at Pearl Harbor and the early defeats of World War II, came out swinging and defeated the tyranny of Hitler and Imperial Japan. She stood steadfast and resolute through the dark decades of the Cold War until the threat of Communism Reaching down deep inside

Bush declared Friday a day of prayer for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Observance on Kwajalein is at noon at the bugle call for Mess. At the sound of the bugle, all are invited to stop where they are and observe one minute of silence for all those who have died and are suffering the after-effects of the storm. At the end of the minute, a short blast of the siren will signal the end of the period of silent observance and gesture of solidarity and support. Bechtel offers to match KRS employee donations, raises its corporate contribution. After increasing to $500,000 its cash contribution to the American Red CrossÂ’ Disaster Relief Fund, Bechtel, one of Kwajalein Range ServicesÂ’ parent companies, is matching all employee donations made to the American Red CrossÂ’ hurricane relief efforts, from the rst dollar (no threshold) and in addition to the corporate contribution.This opportunity to qualify for the company match applies to both KRS employees and their immediate family members through the special American Red Cross Web site set up for Bechtel employees, family members and retirees. The deadline for contribuSee ANSWERS, Page 6Kwajalein will observe moment of silence for Katrina victims at noon on Friday.Hourglass reportsKwajalein Range Services is obligated under its contract with the Army to maintain a drug-free workplace. This is a common requirement of government contracts, but is especially important on a military installation such as Kwajalein Atoll. Aside from the contractual requirement, intoxication in the workplace and illegal drug use in our community are destructive and dangerous. To address these issues, KRS recently rolled out SPI 1801, Drug and Alcohol-Free Workplace. It represents a consolidation of some prior policy statements and addresses some concerns that have arisen based on recent experience. During rollout of the new SPI, KRS received a number of questions and concerns, which are addressed in the following Â‘frequently asked questions.Â’ Employees with other questions may submit them to their supervisor or to the KRS Human Resources department. Q. Is there a drug problem on Kwajalein Atoll? A Yes. While it may be small compared to some other places, it cannot be ignored. In the recent past, we have been made aware of the fact that signi cant amounts of drugs have been discovered on the atoll. Some employees have lost their jobs and been barred from U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll facilities due to abuse of drugs, some individuals have required medical intervention for intoxication and within the atoll there has been at least one fatality associated with drug use. Q. Is KRS implementing a random drug-testing program? A The new SPI does not create a random drug-testing program. Random drug testing is rare here, and in the foreseeable future any use of random drug testing will be the exception and not the rule. Law mandates random testing for certain employee categories under the Department of Transportation Â– notably pilots and selected Marine department employees. This has not changed. Also not new Â– the company sometimes puts employees who have a drug history into a Â“last chanceÂ” agreement under the Employee Assistance Program, which does involve random testing. The new SPIÂ’s most signi cant change in the area of random testing is that KRS management can in the future identify certain safety or security-sensitive positions and put them in the random program. KRS has not yet identi ed any new positions, but the option now exists. Q. If I fall off my bicycle riding home from the Yuk Club after a couple of drinks, will I be reported to the company president and USAKA? A. First, you are no doubt aware that KRS has placed an increased emphasis on safety. This concern for safety is a prime reason for issuing the new SPI. The best way to avoid this particular situation is Â– if youÂ’ve had too much to drink, walk home. Treating this question more generally, not all hospital visits will lead to drug testing. Testing would be done only if there is a medical need to clarify diagnosis or if requested by safety or police personnel. Furthermore, not all positive alcohol tests will lead to discipline. The mere fact of drinking after work hours will not be cause for discipline unless some misconduct is involved Â– such as disturbing the peace, creating a danger, destruction of property or serving alcohol to minors. Q. Why is my after-hours conduct any business of the Army or the KRS president? A. The Army is ultimately responsible for what happens on USAKA facilities, and they have expressed a need-toknow when intoxication creates a risk. In addition, our WorkersÂ’ Compensation insurance is broader than typical continental United States policies, and covers some off-duty injuries. These incidents can drive our rates up, just as onduty injuries do. If injuries are caused by drugs or alcohol, the worker may not be covered by WorkersÂ’ Compensation.
Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Eighty-one divers participated in SundayÂ’s Light Up the Lagoon event at Emon Beach. (Photos by Mig Owens) K w a j a l e i n d i v e r s p a y u n d e r w a t e r Kwajalein divers pay underwater t r i b u t e t o v i c t i m s h e r o e s o f 9 / 1 1 tribute to victims, heroes of 9/11went through and the reman and police that went beyond the call of duty to come to their rescue,Â” Bill Williamson, KSC president, said. Once in place, divers one-by-one turned their lights out, symbolic of the towers falling. Three rings of a bell, three times each, signaled a moment of silence that followed. After this tribute, divers moved out to deeper water and put on small light shows for the crowd, which lled the shoreline. This is the rst club event of its kind since one was done on a smaller scale in 1996. A secondary goal of the club was to assemble a large number of divers in the water for a night dive. Sharon Hurst,club vice president and master diver, who directed and tracked divers from the shore during the dive, considers the Light Up the Lagoon event a memorial service. Â“There are a lot of re ghters and police here today and itÂ’s very important to themÂ…IÂ’m honored to be part of this,Â” Hurst said. Williamson sees Light Up the Lagoon as a way for those who could not be at the site of the tragedy to pay their respects. Â“IÂ’m sure many Americans like myself wanted to drive to New York and help. Actually some did, just pick up and go. My hat is off to those people,Â” Doug Hepler of the Kwajalein Pipes and Drums plays at the event Sunday night. By Mig Owens Assistant editorSymbolizing the twin towers Sunday night at Emon Beach, 81 divers formed the shape of the two buildings with ashlights to Â“Light Up the LagoonÂ” in remembrance of the tragic events of 9/11. The dive was sponsored by the Kwajalein Scuba Club so that Â“we not forget the pain and suffering our fellow Americans

Justin Hirniak, Reagan Test Site commander, a prayer led by the Rev. Rick Funk, Protestant chaplain and music by Kwajalein Pipes and Drums. Kwajalein Police Department Chief Dennis Johnson gave an emotional tribute to fallen brethren followed by a rendition of the FiremanÂ’s Prayer by Lt. Corey Wiley of the Kwajalein Fire Department, also a dive master. Â“Freedom, as you all know, is not free,Â” Hirniak said. Â“Those Americans sacri ced lives so we can wake up and experience freedom from the greatest country on earth.Â” Left, Ella Martindale, 20 months, tries on her dad, JackÂ’s dive gear.

Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 ANSWERS, from Page 3 KATRINA, from Page 3 tions is Nov.15.Employees are welcome to donate to another reputable charitable organization of their choice; however, Bechtel will be able to match only those donations made online through the Red Cross Web site at https://secure2.convio.net/ arc/site/Donation?ACTION=SHOW_DONATION_ OPTIONS&CAMPAIGN_ID=1303.faded from the world.The American spirit rose from the horror of 9/11. New York City remen and police of cers wouldnÂ’t quit until they had found all of their comrades in the rubble of the towers. Americans vowed as one not to be defeated or cowed by that act of evil.And now she will rise once more from the destruction of the Gulf Coast caused by Katrina. America has had moments when she has been staggered and bloodied, when her knees have buckled and she stumbled back into the ropes. But she has always reached down deep inside, found the courage, determination, the will to win and fought back. She will stand rm against the new world threat of terror-REACHING, from Page 2 ism and will forever be the defender of freedom. America might take hard blows, but she will always keep coming. Because you see, Americans are like Ray Mancini and the re ghters and police of cers in New York City and our men and women in uniform. We all share the same heart. The heart of a champion. Q. Who gets access to my medical records? A KRS does not plan to allow access to medical records for implementation of the new SPI. The records of drug testing under the new SPI will not be medical records. They will be kept separately as business records related to the safety of our workforce. That leaves the employeeÂ’s medical record con dential as required by law. Q. Who would have access to such business records? A Business records which re ect the use of illegal drugs or in uence of alcohol in the workplace will have limited need-to-know distribution as other HR records do. This includes distribution to those managers necessary to determine whether employment action or possibly termination is appropriate. USAKA would be expected to share the information they receive with those necessary to determine whether personnel should be barred from USAKA facilities. Q. What safeguards will be in place to ensure proper chain of custody, test veri cation and similar issues?A. Kwajalein has an excellent medical laboratory, which is periodically certi ed by outside examiners. In addition, any positive drug test will be con rmed by certi ed stateside laboratories. (Positive alcohol tests will not be con rmed off island.) The con rmation test will be done on the same sample that tests positive on Kwajalein. Chain of custody is documented per standard hospital laboratory specimen protocols. Department of Transportation-mandated testing has some additional safeguards as well.Q. What safeguards will exist to prevent or minimize abuse of this system? A. A Kwajalein physician certi ed as a Medical Review Of cer (per the Department of Transportation program) will review positive tests. MRO duties include evaluation of documentation, chain of custody and possibility of false positive tests. Only after the MRO con rms the positive test will KRS management be noti ed. Information about positive drug test results will be disclosed only on a need-to-know basis. The hospital would disclose only to the KRS president or his designee, and KRS will report only to top management at USAKA. Q. Are you concerned that people will avoid getting medical treatment to avoid detection of drug use? A. Yes, this is a concern. KRS very much hopes people will not risk their personal welfare, or that of their friends or family members in this way. Again, remember that not all tests will lead to negative consequences, though the company and the Army are committed to eliminating illegal drug use on USAKA facilities. Besides making our workplace unsafe, drugs destroy lives. Q. Paragraph G on Page 6 of SPI 1801 states Â“ES&H [Environmental Safety and Health] personnel may require an employee to undergo drug/alcohol tests for post-injury/ accident or near-accident testing.Â” Is it common for ES&H employees to be the ones who require such tests?A Yes. ES&H personnel are often among the rst responders to accidents and near-accidents. They are responsible for helping gure out what went wrong and how to prevent a repeat. If alcohol or drug intoxication is involved, it is very likely to be a cause of the problem.Q. Am I responsible for guests I bring on a 480 request? A. Yes, but this is not new with the Drug and Alcohol-Free Workplace SPI. The 480 visitor program is run by USAKA, and residents are well advised to pay attention to whom they invite on island. See USAKA Regulation 190-10 for further information on responsibility for visitors. Q. The SPI seems to be targeted for on-island employees. How will it be applied to CONUS or Hawaii employees? Is there still a requirement to notify when a family member has a problem?A. The SPI applies to KRS employees who work in the United States. It also applies to employees and their family members who visit or reside on the atoll. In a sense, while on the atoll, people are never really away from the work location. Likewise, the requirement to notify when a family member has a problem is applicable to Â“accompanying family members,Â” i.e., those on the atoll.Q. I donÂ’t have access to a computer or the KARDS system at work. How can I get a copy of the new SPI? A. The person who trained you on the new SPI can provide you with a copy of the instruction.
