There were no laws against child labor. Miners worked in dangerous, cave-in ridden coal mines with no protection from the coal dust that caused so many to die of black lung disease. Workers labored in factories and sweatshops in unsafe conditions and many, including children, were injured or killed in industrial accidents that could have been avoided if employers had installed and provided proper safety equipment. if workers were injured or killed, companies bore no responsibilty no matter how it happened.The worker really was the poor ‘little guy’ who had absolutely no By John Feldman Kwajalein Range Services Environmental, Safety and HealthBoating safety…. the key to a successful voyage! A large portion of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll community takes advantage of the recreational opportunities associated with boating. One of the major bene ts of living in the Marshall Islands is having sail and power boating, shing, diving, snorkeling, wake boarding, water and jet skiing at your doorstep.As with any recreational endeavor, safety must be a key part of planning and playing on the water. Over the past month there have been six boat-related injuries within USAKA. Each of these injuries was serious enough to require medical treatment at the hospital. Four of the accidents resulted in lacerations, which required stitches. Two involved fractures and contusions. Most of these injuries were the result of slips and falls at the dock or underway. While these injuries were not severe, they could have been more serious had conditions been slightly different. They should be considered forewarnings of what could happen. Our recreational boating program provides excellent training to qualify for an operator’s license. It is focused on safe use of the vessels, navigation, docking, man-overboard drills, emergency situations, etc. However, the ultimate safety of a successful voyage depends on everybody taking personal responsibility for their own safety and actions on board. In particular, everybody must realize they are not on “terra rma,” The AETNA Summary of Coverage Plan for Kwajalein Range Services/Chugach Development Corp./AirScan Paci c Inc. and a list of frequently asked questions about employee benefits is available on the intranet at intranet/ biz/KARDS\Assorted Documents\Human Resources\Health & Welfare Benefits The SOC is intended to provide employees with further information regarding the coverage plans available.

Saturday, Oct. 22, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass By Mig Owens Assistant editorThough ve Kindergarten-age students are selected each year to participate in the Guest Student Program at Kwajalein schools, not one will graduate this year for various personal reasons Pam Duffy, Ebeye parent representative to the School Advisory Council, said, “Parents saw this as a problem.” Faced with concern over this situation and a marked decline in attendance of Guest Student Program participants at school and school-sponsored events, Ebeye parents decided to act. Since Sept. 4, they have been coming together on Ebeye the last Sunday of every month in an effort to become more aware and involved in their children’s education. “We want to be more actively involved in their school experience. We care,” Duffy said at Wednesday’s SAC public meeting, held in the elementary school music room. At their monthly gatherings, the Ebeye parents discuss issues of concern and Duffy then routes questions through Teri King, George Seitz Elementary School vice principal. “Most of their questions have to do with clarifying information about opportunities and events already taking place on Kwajalein so that they can be more involved,” King said. Of the newly improved communication, Duffy said, “As we are getting answers back, it’s boosting us to work harder.” By working closely with King, Duffy is hoping to overcome what she believes is the root of the ongoing problem – the language barrier. Through this effort, Duffy said that “those who do speak both languages have been able to help parents out who don’t.” “Some parents of guest students felt intimidated when attending events on Kwaj because they didn’t feel they had a mastery of the English language that would enable them to fully understand what was being presented at meetings,” King explained. “We have arranged to have translators at parent-teacher conferences for any Ebeye parent requesting that, and we have also arranged translators for workshops such as the recent ‘Homework Hints’ workshop offered by CYS [Child and Youth Services].” Another way in which communication between the schools and Guest Student Program parents has improved is through the use of hand-carried notes, which inform parents of events in a timely fashion. “Some parents don’t have access to the Hourglass or TVs,” Duffy explained, adding that often information disseminated through the mail reaches parents up to two weeks late. Strategies for involving Ebeye parents, according to King, include adjusting meeting times to accommodate ferry schedules. Overcoming transportation needs for those parents who don’t have a bicycle on Kwajalein simply means coordinating transportation via the school van for school-sponsored events, she said. Communication has also improved by way of guest speakers at the monthly gatherings on Ebeye, during School Advisory Council 3 Fourth graders Rosalynn Ysawa, 10, left and Jenna Bulles, 10, are members of the Guest Student Program and attend George Seitz Elementary School on Kwajalein. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie) Parents of Ebeye guest students organize to boost involvement in children's educationwhich Kwajalein Schools faculty members share information in person. According to King, the newly formed group on Ebeye was not aware of the opportunity for representation on the SAC board until it was clari ed by the school. “It was our suggestion that they elect a representative from their Ebeye parent group to serve on the SAC board so they had yet another venue to share their valuable input, but also voice any concerns they had. They took us up on that and Pam Duffy is now their SAC representative,” King said. King considers the Ebeye parent population equally as critical as the Kwajalein parent population when it comes to ensuring the success of the students. Said King, “It is our mission as a school to meet the needs of all of our students and provide parents with the information and knowledge they need to be an integral part of their child’s school experience.” Other topics discussed at Wednesday’s SAC public meeting include expansion of all-day, every-day Kindergarten to four-year-old children, which was brought forth by Dan Frazier, Kwajalein Schools superintendent. Also discussed was a revision to the cut-off date for entry to Kindergarten. At present, children must be ve years old on or before Oct. 31 to be eligible. Frazier asked the SAC to consider revising the date, possibly to Sept. 1, because of “a need for greater Kindergarten readiness among the students than in previous years.” Jim Landgraff, SAC chairman, asked that Frazier “write it up” and that the SAC See PARENTS, Page 5


Saturday, Oct. 22, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass Airline tickets replaced with lumpsum for KRS annual leave bene t4 Travel policy revisedtickets. According to Burt, the recent uctuation in the BMAC rate is a result of increased fuel prices. KRS will be given notice by Continental 45 days in advance of any further adjustments to the fare. “Employees will need to plan their annual leave travel well in advance to ensure availability of lowest airfare,” Lum said. Tickets may be purchased from Continental Travel up to 330 days in advance. Added Burt, “If you wait, there may be no BMAC seats available, so plan early.” For the continental United States portion of an employee’s annual trip, Burt suggests shopping for the best deal. “See the Continental packages (announced in the Oct. 15 edition of the Hourglass ).” Lum added that this policy change also applies to temporary duty travel in conjunction with annual leave and eliminates the need for the cashin-lieu provision in the previous revision of the policy. The revised Travel off the Kwajalein Atoll policy also eliminates the requirement for employees to remain on island 90 days past the date of travel or the earned date, whichever is greater. “We have intentionally eliminated the 90-day rule,” Burt said. “We did that to turn it into a true contract completion. You earned it – it’s your money. If you’ve given 90days notice [prior to contract completion] there are no hooks. You leave contract complete. This part had nothing to do with compliance. We made a conscious decision because it’s the right thing to do.” Employees requesting early use of their annual leave must purchase all of their airline tickets, including the Kwajalein to Honolulu or Guam tickets, round trip. Travel orders are still required for return to Kwajalein, but because employees will make their own travel arrangements, two weeks lead time for processing is suf cient instead of four. Before the current policy revision, employees choosing not to travel off the island for their annual leave forfeited the airfare bene t. Now, they may pocket the cash. “Employees now have choices where they didn’t before,” Burt said. Questions about the policy revision may be directed to the KRS Travel department at 54456.By Mig Owens Assistant editorOn completion of 12 months of service, Kwajalein Range Services Team employees now earn travel off the Kwajalein Atoll in the form of cash instead of airline tickets. The change is part of the most recent revision to the Kwajalein Range Services travel policy, SPI-0122, in effect as of Oct. 6. According to Dana Lum, KRS Human Resources supervisor, the policy revision is in response to the change in the BMAC fare from fully refundable to non-refundable tickets. The change, initiated by Continental Airlines, created a risk for non-compliance with governing regulations. “Instances of non-compliance occurred when nonrefundable tickets were placed on the company’s ‘ghost card’ for employees’ leave which, for whatever reason, they decided not to take,” Bob Burt, KRS controller, said. “We’re now buying nonrefundable tickets and we’re stuck with them. We can’t bill the government for trips not taken and it’s dif cult to collect from the employee for something we paid for.”Burt explained, “It’s not so much about saving money — we don’t have the money to ensure compliance.”Under the new policy, the airfare bene t will be based on the BMAC or discounted round-trip military fare in effect on the pay period ending date of the month in which the bene t is earned. It is paid automatically via payroll and is in addition to the cash bene t of $1,500 for the employee and $1,100 for each eligible dependent. KRS obtains rates from Continental Travel at the rst pay period end date of each month for round-trip travel from Kwajalein to Honolulu. The rate at that point in time equals the airfare bene t. At press time, the price for a round-trip ticket from Kwajalein to Honolulu is $1040.70. Bob Bills, KRS HR manager, said that the bene t includes all standard fees associated with the purchase of the BMAC


Saturday, Oct. 22, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5would entertain it. The Home School policy, which was approved by the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site legal department, underwent a vote and passed, though a statement crafted by Bonnie Compton, elementary Parent-Teacher Organization representative, is in the works. On approval, the section to which it applies may be revised, according to Landgraff. Results of Kwajalein Schools’ student achievement standardized testing were reported. See Page 6 for more information. Time allotment for faculty professional development was also discussed. Frazier proposed breaking the existing two full days slated for this purpose, April 28 and 29, into four half days to be used earlier in the year. vember meeting.PARENTS, from Page 3 In other business: • The Child Development Center will hold its annual Pumpkin Patch event from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday at the elementary school. • The elementary PTO will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday in the elementary multi-purpose room. • Child and Youth Services will host a Home Alone workship from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday for 5th and 6th grade students and their parents at the Kwaj Kids Club room, Building. 368. • The National Honor Society will host the Ebeye Guest Students for Halloween on Oct. 31, providing games, food, costumes and trick-or-treat time around the island. • The School Book Fair will be held Nov. 2 and 3 at the elementary school.

The constant shifting and rocking of the boat is typically compounded by a slippery deck, mooring lines, shing gear, protruding hardware and other objects. Don’t let an injury ruin a great day on the water. Follow this guidance: • Always be aware of your surroundings, water and weather conditions. Don’t take risks. • Be vigilant, anticipate and counteract boat movements. Ensure you have rm footing and a hand hold if necessary to steady yourself when moving about. • Wear proper footwear with slip-resistant soles. • Never jump onto an unstable or slippery surface. • Always look before you step. • Always listen to the instructions of your operator/ captain. Know emergency procedures and equipment. • Wear a life vest if you don’t know how to swim or at the direction of the captain. The safety of the community and employees comes rst at Kwajalein Range Services and USAKA. Last Saturday, employees attended Safety Showcase Day at Kwajalein. John Pickler, KRS president, announced the safety improvements and reduction in work-place injuries we have achieved over the past year. It is important that these safety practices are carried forward into our recreational activities. The next time you head to the marina, take a few minutes to think about the hazards you will be dealing with and the necessary precautionary procedures. Make the most of your recreational endeavors here and think safety!BOATING, from Page 2 Missing World War II airmen identified Coming home DoD news releaseSee AIRMEN, Page 16The remains of three U.S. servicemen, missing in action since 1941, have been identi ed and are being returned to their families for burial with full military honors. They are Army Air Force 2nd Lt. Augustus J. Allen, of Myrtle Springs, Texas, Staff Sgt. James D. Cartwright, of Los Angeles, Calif. and Cpl. Paul R. Stubbs, of Haverhill, Mass. On June 8, 1941, Allen, Cartwright and Stubbs departed France Field, Panama in an O-47A aircraft, en route to Rio Hato, Panama. When the aircraft failed to arrive at its destination, a search was initiated by both air and ground forces, but with negative results. In April 1999, a Panamanian citizen reported to Panamanian Civil Aeronautics he had discovered aircraft wreckage while hunting in the mountains of Panama Province, Republic of Panama. After a PCA search and rescue team visited the site, the wreckage was reported to the Joint Prisoner of War Accounting Command. JPAC specialists surveyed the area in August 1999, and in February 2002 excavated the site where they recovered remains and crew-related artifacts. The crash site


Saturday, Oct. 22, 2005 The Kwajalein HourglassHourglass reportsKwajalein schools use the standardized tests of the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills for Grades 2-8 and the Iowa Tests of Educational Development for Grades 9 and 10. According to Dan Frazier, Kwajalein Schools superintendent, “These tests, as they were originally developed, are intended to be an assessment of how a building’s or a school’s curriculum addresses certain basic skills as identi ed by the tests.” This report depicts student achievement in Grades 4, 8 and 10. By federal law, all public schools in the United States are required to report their student achievement for Grades 4, 8 and 11. “Kwajalein Schools have traditionally not tested their eleventh graders,” Frazier said. Kwajalein Schools are reporting all student achievement test scores in compliance with the federal law called “No Child Left Behind” this year. Kwaj student performance The rst three graphs depict how Kwajalein schools compare to other schools in the continental United States by means of its percentile rank; therefore, the percentile of 50 indicates where the average schools in the United States t on the scale. According to Frazier, the Iowa Tests are among the most rigorous testing instruments in the nation. “Its norms are stricter than many other tests. In theory, all norms should be the same; however, in reality they are not. The Iowa Tests have a long history in assessing student and school achievement. Several states across the nation (not just Iowa) have adopted these tests as their own state’s assessment of schools and student achievement,” he said. Conclusions According to Frazier, last year’s sophomore class scored better than 96 percent of the nation’s schools in the Core Total areas of Reading, Expression (Language), and Quantitative Thinking (Mathematics) combined. “Therefore, Kwajalein Schools compare very favorably against United States national norms,” he said. Scholastic Aptitude Test results Each year students in the Kwajalein junior class take the Scholastic Aptitude Test. High S.A.T. test scores increase the chances for students to be accepted by colleges early in their senior year if they plan to attend a four-year college. The tests can indicate the likelihood of post-se condary success. And when viewed as an entire class, the tests can show to some extent the ability of a school system to prepare students for success in a four-year college. Traditionally, the Kwajalein Schools have performed 6Kwaj students do well on standard tests well compared to the nation or individual states. “The eight-year average for Kwajalein students is 1129, which is well above the national average. Furthermore, it is important to note that 100 percent of Kwajalein students take the SAT each year,” Frazier said.

For updates, call the movie hotline at 52700. Land of the Dead George A. Romero, who revolutionized the American horror lm in 1968 with the instant classic Night of the Living Dead, returns to his dystopian zombie cycle with this horror thriller. In Land of the Dead, the zombies whose numbers had been slowly but steadily growing through Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead now dominate the streets of most American cities, while urban skyscrapers have been taken over by surviving humans, usually greed-addled opportunists who allow the living to stay in their forti ed compounds for a price. Guarding the buildings are rough-and-tumble mercenaries who have learned to do battle with the zombies, making use of powerful weapons to gain advantage. But as the zombie civilization grows, the creatures have begun to slowly evolve, with their dormant thought processes beginning to awaken, and as unrest begins to ferment among the mercenaries and the entrepreneurs who pay them, the ghouls may have found a way to defeat the last stronghold of humanity. Cinderella Man The true story of an athlete who achieved his greatest success against the most daunting odds of his life is brought to the screen in this historical drama. In the 1920s, James Braddock (Russell Crowe) from Bergen, NJ, was a promising contender in professional boxing; he had strength, spirit, and tenacity, but the combination of a serious hand injury and a 1929 defeat in a bout with light heavyweight champ Tommy Loughran sent his career into a serious tailspin. As Braddock’s career in the ring dried up, the Great Depression put a stake through the heart of America’s economy, and Braddock found himself working at the New York docks for pitiful wages as he tried to support his wife, Mae (Rene Zellweger), and three children. Desperate for money, Braddock turned to his former trainer and manager Joe Gould (Paul Giamatti), who was unexpectedly able to scare up a bout for him, battling John Grif n at Madison Square Garden While conventional wisdom had it that Braddock was too old, out of shape, and out of practice to have any chance of winning, he defeated Grif n, and continued beating his opponents with a powerful left hook that had been intensi ed by years of punishing dock work.The following 24 U.S. servicemembers have died in the Global War on Terrorism.

Then, as laborers had enough of being worked to death, not being able to support their families on meager wages and saw their fellow workers die in accidents or red on a whim, they started to ght back. They organized into labor unions and endured beatings by company ‘goons’ and hired ‘police’. They were called communists and criminals. Many were killed by police and troops in labor riots when they tried to shut down factories and companies to force them to negotiate fair wages and other grievances.Eventually, unions such as the United Mine Workers, United Auto Workers, the Teamster’s and the AFLCIO, became the most powerful forces in the country. As their numbers grew they gained political clout and they forced the passage of fair labor laws, overtime pay, safe working conditions, health care and pension bene ts. Union workers became the American middle class. They were able to afford cars and homes with the wages their unions negotiated for them. Labor unions made the American dream a reality. Union workers were the best paid workers with the best employer-provided bene ts in the world. They were the envy of workers everywhere. They were the most productive on earth and they built the world’s strongest economy. But now, globalization is here. The advances in technology, methods of shipping products and cheap labor in other countries have seen the steady erosion of the American manufacturing sector, which employed most of the union workers in the country. Many have accused American companies of being traitors because they have shipped jobs overseas. But just recently, Delphi Corporation, the largest automobile parts manufacturer in the world, employing 33,000 people, led for bankruptcy. Delphi, along with many other companies, say their union contracts calling for health and pension bene ts are breaking them and it’s impossible for them to compete in the world market under the crushing debt load of those bene ts. If you wonder how that can be, consider this. Delphi has been paying its workers a wage and bene t package worth $65 per hour. That’s not just for skilled labor, designers and engineers. That goes all the way down to the janitors who clean the restrooms. Industrial giants like Ford Motor Company and General Motors are actually in danger of going bankrupt because of their union contracts too. They soon will no longer have the money to fund pension and health bene ts for their retirees. Isn’t it so terribly ironic that unions which gave Americans the best standard of living in the world may now be a big reason for the decline of that standard?Unions, which gave workers job security, may now be causing them to lose jobs in this time of global competition.In the past few years, many unions have had to make enormous wage and bene t concessions just to keep their members employed. It seems there is no end in sight to this trend as union ranks keep shrinking because their members have been laid off and companies have closed or moved overseas. Who knows what the answer is or if there is an answer? But if labor unions go the way of the dinosaurs, a way of life will surely end. And for millions of middle-class Americans, it was a very good way.
