For me, it’s time. I can’t help but marvel at the experience of my year and a half at The Kwajalein Hourglass I must have done something right in a past life or been on the receiving end of some good karma to deserve seeing all I’ve seen and doing all I’ve done as a member of the press. The feature stories I’ve written will be forever etched in my memory because of the emotions they’ve stirred in me and because of the people I’ve met while covering them. For that reason, I consider my heart full to have been a part of it all, and fortunate to be able to share these stories with others through the newspaper. When I look back at covering the news, what stands out most is how much I thought I knew, but didn’t really know until I learned to listen – not just to one side of a story, but to the many sides. My commitment to honesty and fairness in journalism – sometimes at a price – I hope had a positive impact on the nished product, enabled readers to draw their own conclusions. For the relationships I’ve established with members of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll command, Kwajalein Range Services, the Marshallese people and the community as a whole, I am truly thankful. My success is directly related to both your inspiration and cooperation. Kommol tata. To The Kwajalein Hourglass staff, my thanks and admiration for handling stress like pros – even when it’s paper morning and there’s still a blank page or the computer screen tells us the paper le is ‘corrupt.’ Under incredible twice-weekly deadline pressure, somehow you still managed to always make me laugh. And especially to Dan, whose heart beats rst for his wife and second for the paper, words can’t express how much I’ll miss a daily dose of your crusty exterior, which hides one of the most genuinely wonderful people I’ve ever met. What’s next is all about rsts.My plan to be without a plan is de nitely a rst for me – exciting and scary all at the same time. This leap of faith is made possible by the loves of my life, Mark, Brandon and Ashley, and the support of some fabulous friends. But whatever other rsts await me, nothing will compare to the time I’ve spent living amid the swaying palm trees, ocean spray, and all of you while carrying a camera bag, notebook and pen. This is de nitely not goodbye – more like ‘see you around the island’. And from the bottom of my heart, thanks for reading!By Mig Owens Assistant editor A recent letter in The Kwajalein Hourglass and several conversations with community members have prompted me to provide a little information on a topic that should be near and dear to many of our community members. The safety and protection of our children starts with the commander and includes parents, siblings or care providers. Kwajalein Police Department serves as an intermediary in the safety and protection of our children, but occasionally it could play a larger role depending on the situation. KPD’s policy when interfacing with youths on Kwajalein is to rst identify the juvenile. If a K-Badge is not available, depending on the depth of the juvenile’s involvement, a quick run to the station to use our automated system is required to assist in this process. At the station, attempts to contact the parent or care provider will be made to inform the guardian of what has taken place. As a parent, I’m glad for the policy as it eliminates those unanswered questions that you as a parent might have after an episode, and tells you other people are watching out for your child’s welfare — even when you are not present. KPD will respond to any call it receives or to situations observed during routine patrolling that the of cers see is out of the ordinary and collect information to ascertain what actually is happening. As the chief, I take comfort in that fact. A reminder to folks who leave the island and assign guardianship to another adult: Please make sure the juvenile knows who is responsible for them so they will know whom we can contact. This has happened in the past and creates a very awkward situation. Bottom line, KPD will be glad to respond to any incident it or anyone else feels warranted whether criminal and/or safety related. Please feel free to call the police desk at 54445, 54446 or 54449 for assistance. Dennis Johnson chief of Police Kwaj Police Department is youth’s safety intermediary


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005 3 By Mig Owens Assistant editorDuring a visit with some SpaceX temporary duty friends at their house on Nov. 12, one of them offered Sharon Hurst a small green glass bottle of Canada Dry Ginger Ale. Because she was unable to open it, she handed it to her friend and asked him for help. “Not being able to open a bottle is not unusual for me; I have very little hand strength. The bottle appeared to be sealed,” Hurst said. “My friend opened the bottle and handed it back to me. Without even thinking I took a large chug from the bottle and swallowed it.” Hurst said her rst thought was that it was not ginger ale. “For a split second I thought it was club soda, then it started to choke me and burn like re all the way down my throat,” she said. “I looked at the bottle and saw that it was indeed a ginger ale bottle, then I smelled it – it smelled like bleach!” She ran to the sink and tried rinsing her mouth but remembers gasping for air and choking on the smell of chlorine. One of her friends called 911 while another held her up at the sink. “I wasn’t sure what the remedy for swallowing bleach was, I didn’t know if I should drink water or try to vomit or what I should do,” Hurst explained. “Mostly, I was scared, because my stomach was on re and I was having a hard time breathing because of the chlorine fumes and adrenaline.” The re department responded to the 911 call. “One of the bene ts of living on a small island is pretty much knowing everyone, so when Corey Wiley, and the other remen that I knew and had dove with, showed up, I knew I was in good hands,” Hurst said. At the hospital, Dr. Ed Paget consulted with the National Poison Control Hotline and decided to put a scope down Hurst’s throat and into her stomach to make sure that the bleach did not do any permanent damage. This procedure resulted in an overnight hospital stay. According to Hurst, that same night Paget called Pat Zurich, Food Safety and Sanitation specialist, to ensure all of the Canada Dry in glass bottles were pulled off of the shelves at Ten-Ten and Surfway. Preventative actions were then taken at Kwajalein retail facilities concurrent with conduct of investigations, according to a public notice. “We immediately pulled all product off the shelves, while a full investigation was completed,” David Fearon, acting Kwajalein Range Services Retail manager, said. “The investigation was lead by Pat Zurick with updates being provided to Retail management and Dr. Eric Lindborg [Kwajalein Hospital chief medical of cer].” According to Zurick, all 10-ounce bottles of Canada Dry Ginger Ale were pulled off the shelves before the opening of business on Nov. 13. He said he opened six bottles at Surfway that morning and found no problem. The Country Club Bar was contacted early on Nov. 13 and advised to pull the ginger ale. Later that morning, working with the hospital lab, he said the presence of a high concentration of chlorine in the problem bottle of ginger ale was con rmed.According to Zurick, it appears that the bleach in the ginger ale was a local, isolated incident and not a problem that came from the production line. Beside the fact that there are no national recalls, he cites comparisons of production dates as evidence. “The production date on the problem bottle is Julian date 5147. The production dates that I saw on bottles at Ten-Ten and Surfway are 5188 and 5224. The ginger ale with the older date of 5147 means that it was probably distributed on island before the 5188 and 5224 dates, he said. “And no other complaints have been received.” Zurick added that he received an additional call from Canada Dry customer service again stating they have had no previous recalls or complaints regarding production with the 5147 date. “Also, all of the ginger ale that we now have in Warehouse 993 has a Julian production date of 5259,” he said. The public was noti ed that the suspect bottle was from a shipment that has been on island for more than one month. Shipments of that nature are stored at the warehouse, and according to Fearon, the items are typically on the store shelves within a month or two. “The warehouse is on rst-in, rst-out basis to ensure quality product. Ten-Ten and Surfway have already sold through the dates that are on the bottle that was found to have bleach,” he said. According to the public notice, current sodas on sale at retail facilities are considered safe to drink. “Pat Zurick inspected our Canada Dry supply and determined this was an isolated incident that more than likely was caused by someone lling the bottle with bleach without re-labeling the bottle,” Fearon said. “Stock clerks are checking seals on bottles and ensuring that there is no leakage or breakage; if they nd seals broken the product would be surveyed and not be available to purchase.” Hurst’s theory on how bleach got into her ginger ale bottle has to do with lack of re-labeling as well. “The TDY guys bought several the bottles of ginger ale from Surfway in mid October. They went home for 12 days just before Halloween and returned to Kwaj to nd all of their food items still in the house,” she said. “My guess is that someone, possibly on the cleaning staff, put the bleach in the bottle to take home and forgot the bottle. When the guys came back they just assumed that it was ginger ale and put the bottles Bleach in ginger ale bottle accidentally ingested, appears to be isolated incidentUnseen danger See BLEACH, Page 6


Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 S p a c e X a t t e m p t i n g K w a j a l e i n r a n g e ’ s SpaceX attempting Kwajalein range’s r s t rst e v e r -ever g r o u n d b a s e d o r b i t a l l a u n c h ground-based orbital launch I By Mig Owens Assistant editor I In a little more than three years, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site customer SpaceX has evolved “from a blank sheet of paper to a fully quali ed two-stage rocket with the capability of launching 1,300 pounds to low-earth orbit [about 500 miles out],” according to Tim Buzza, SpaceX vice president of Test and Launch Operations. The company’s goal Saturday is to prove that a rocket can be delivered and launched within 10 days, 11 shorter than what is typically required, with a launch crew of less than 25. The demonstration is part of a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency Force Application and Launch from the continental United States program in which SpaceX and three other companies are competing. The winner proceeds with production of a low-cost, responsive launch vehicle. That prize is aligned with what SpaceX is all about, according to Buzza, who said, “Building the lowest cost-toorbit launch vehicle that is entirely commercially funded is the SpaceX philosophy.” Construction of the launch site on Omelek Island by Kwajalein Range Services began in mid-April and was completed in June. SpaceX has been continuing with site construction and launch site preparations. Omelek was chosen because of its equatorial location, which offers a higher percentage of payload capability. The island was formerly used for meteorological rocket launches in support of inter-continental ballistic missile and Missile Defense missions. Operations ceased in 1994. The current launch site on Omelek mirrors the Vandenburg Air Force Base, Calif. station, where SpaceX conducts testing. “USAKA and KRS have really delivered for SpaceX,” Buzza said. “As a team, we have gone from planning to a completed launch site in less than six months.” According to Buzza, the launch site has three main functions – to provide space for the launch vehicle pre-launch checkout and test, payload encapsulation and integration, and to launch the vehicle. Employees required for this week’s launch include 10 people in the SpaceX launch control center, located on the back side of Building 1500, seven people, consisting of engineers and technicians, on Omelek, and seven supporting people. The twenty fth person will be SpaceX Chief Executive Of cer Elon Musk. In the name of safety, the crew on Omelek will evacuate the site approximately three hours prior to launch. “We are committed to safety in our operation on Omelek and can proudly say that we have ‘0’ time off since our start of operations here in Kwajalein,” Buzza said. “We coordinate every step of the way with range safety from both a ground and ight perspective. Of course there is always room for improvement so we will continue to look for suggestions to make our workplace even safer.” Most SpaceX employees are staying in Macy’s, the company has lled two temporary duty houses and several are staying at the Kwaj Lodge. Jim Davis, Kwajalein site manager for SpaceX and former Marine evaluator with USAKA, added that on Omelek, a six-wide trailer dubbed the ‘Alabama Mansion’ serves as of ce space and sleeping quarters where some stay regularly. “The crews enjoy the peaceful nights, along with catching lobster to cook on the grill,” he said. Preparations for this week’s launch equate to a hectic pace, requiring employees to work 12-hour days generally seven days a week. This doesn’t bother Chris Thompson, vice president of Development Operations, who describes Falcon 1 is rolled out to the pad Monday prior to vehicle erection.(Photos by Chris Thompson)


The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005 5 SpaceX as a “get it done, kick ass company.” Thompson, a member of the SpaceX team since 2002, oversees 12 people responsible for launch vehicle development and development of the manufacturing processes. “Most of my activities so far have been building up the launch mount system that is used to erect and stabilize the rocket,” he said. “As we get closer to launch most of my time is spent on vehicle integration and launch preparations. The effect of SpaceX on the Atoll is primarily on employment, with the company hiring three full-time employees on Kwajalein, one of which is a Republic of the Marshall Islands employee. The company’s success, Thompson hopes, means additional payloads signing up with SpaceX that will translate into additional launches from Kwajalein. The company’s long-term goals are to launch four or ve times a year with its Falcon 1 rocket. Buzza added that SpaceX will continue to hire local employees as well as contract the services of USAKA and KRS for all its future projects. “We look forward to revolutionizing access to space and RTS and Kwajalein are a big part of enabling that dream for us,” Buzza said. “We look forward to launching rockets from Omelek for years to come.” Brian Selvy, left, and Steve Fuchs apply ablative, a putty-like substance, to the launch stool to surpress damage to the stool from engine re.

Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6BLEACH, from Page 3 in the fridge. There were three bottles, they drank two and I got the last one. Lucky me!” Lindborg said that to his knowledge, no other medical problems of this type have been encountered. Though, he added there are several informal accounts of people encountering possible toxic liquids when taking a swig from bottles/jars of something that appeared to be a regular commercially marketed drink. “Each of these accounts suggests that someone placed the offending chemical into an empty container without considering that someone might drink it by accident,” he said. Beyond notifying the public of the bleach in bottle incident, Lindborg’s advice to residents is that if there are concerns regarding adverse reaction to any food or drink, “individuals should contact the hospital as soon as possible for assistance in identifying the cause of symptoms, indications for seeking medical care and starting any treatment that might be indicated.” Hurst praised the response of the re department and medical staff saying, “They were incredible; they took such great care of me.” Of the situation in general, she said, “The bottles were pulled from the TenTen Store before I even got out of the hospital. I was a little disappointed that KRS did not get something out to the public a little sooner; I understand the concern that there would be panic about bad bottles of ginger ale on the shelves, there was also some concern about my right to privacy,” Hurst said. “All in all I think that KRS has done a good job handling this.” Hurst cautions people not to put items in bottles without properly labeling the bottle. On the consumer end of things, she added, “Check to make sure caps are sealed, if they are not, dump out the contents. If you have any concerns, smell it before you drink it or just pour it out. Pouring out a 50-cent bottle of soda is far less expensive than a night in the hospital.” The occurrence reinforces the importance of checking seals on drinks, food and medications, according to Lindborg. “If seals are not intact, there should be concern regarding possible contamination. It also shows the tremendous importance of proper labeling,” he said. Lindborg added that people should avoid the use of food/drink containers to store toxic products. “In the rare case where such a container needs to be used, it should be separated out from foods/drinks and clearly labeled with contents, including hazardous substance warnings if applicable.” According to John Feldman, KRS Safety manager, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Hazard Communications Standard requires containers of all chemical products used in the workplace to be labeled. The label must identify the product by its trade or chemical name and also have an appropriate hazard warning.“Manufacturers or distributors we buy materials from are obligated by law to label their containers so we can readily identify their products, know the major hazards and also reference a product’s Material Safety Data Sheet for additional information if necessary,” Feldman said. He explained that if a material is transferred to another container for ease of use or transport, it is critical this new container be labeled as to its identi cation and hazard(s). Departments are responsible for preparing and attaching labels with this information to new containers. Additionally, the new containers must be safe and compatible with the material. “Glass containers should not be used for ammables or highly toxic materials. Workplace chemicals or materials should never be transferred to food or drink containers. This also applies to consumer chemicals,” he said. “The containers are usually not designed for safe storage of the material and can easily be mistaken for food without proper labeling. Supervisors or the Environmental Safety and Health department should be contacted if employees or community members have any questions.” Hours of operationKWAJALEIN Community Activities Beaches Emon.........................................Buddy system All other beaches.......Buddy system at all times Bowling Center ........................................closed CRC/Raquetball Courts ................8 a.m.-1 p.m. Gear Locker ............................................closed Golf Course ...........................Sunrise to Sunset Golf Pro Shop .................6:30 a.m. 12:30 p.m. Driving Range..........................................closed Hobby Shop ............................................closed Ivey Gym.......................................8 a.m.-1 p.m. Kayak Shack ...........................................closed Pools Adult ........................Buddy system at all times Family ......................................10 a.m. noon Skate Park................................................closed Small Boat Marina.........................8 a.m.-1 p.m. ARC ..........................................11 a.m.-10 p.m. Library......................................................closed Food Services Sunrise Bakery.................Thursday 5 a.m.-5p.m., Friday 6 a.m. 12 p.m. Caf Paci c Breakfast.............................................7-9 a.m. Unaccompanied...................11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. All others......................................1 6:30 p.m. Merchandising Macy’s and Macy’s West..........................closed Surfway.....................................................closed Ten-Ten.....................................10 a.m. 2 p.m. Laundry.....................................................closed Beauty/Barber..........................................closed Tape Escape........................10 a.m. 6:30 p.m. Continental Travel Agency ...................closed Post Of ce (Kwaj) .................................closed Community Bank...................................closed Hourglass ................................................closed ROI-NAMUR Gimbel’s....................................10 a.m. 2 p.m. Gym....................................................Open 24/7 Hobby Shop.............................................closed Small Boat Marina.........................8 a.m.-6 p.m. Library......................................................closed Golf Course............................Sunrise to Sunset Adult Pool.....................................Buddy system Gear Locker.............................................closed Post Of ce (Roi) .....................................closed
