At least, not until a tragedy happens such as the one at the Sago mine in West Virginia awhile ago. But such men make an enormous contribution to our country. Coal mining produced the industrial revolution, the railroads, the electrical industry and the steel industry. Coal made America. Oil draws the most attention and concern, but there is more potential energy in the hills of West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and other coal mining states than in all the oil of the Middle East. Just how important is coal today? Well, consider that United States electrical energy production consists of 51.8 percent coal; 19.8 percent nuclear power; 16.1 percent natural gas; 7.2 percent hydroelectric; 2.9 percent petroleum and 2.2 percent from other sources. Statistics show that using coal provides cheaper electricity than any other source. But what does burning coal do to the environment? When coal burns, it produces sulfur dioxide, which, if not regulated, can be a major source of air pollution and acid rain. Methods invented in the past quarter century have greatly reduced or eliminated the effects of burning coal; however, the more environmental regulations that exist the higher the cost of producing energy. Did you know that the value of coal mined in the United States is almost $18 billion per year? Did you know that the coal industry accounts for 90,000 jobs directly and nearly 1 million jobs indirectly? Coal mining has a $161 billion impact annually on the U.S. economy and accounts for $11 billion in tax revenue yearly. The men who go down into those dark, cold mine shafts produce more than six tons of coal per miner per hour. No wonder they are ercely proud of what they do, as we saw evidenced during the tragedy in West Virginia. But these days, there are fewer young men who want to go into the mines and dig coal. The average age of a coal miner in the United States today is 48. The coal industry states that due to retirements and the increased demand for coal they foresee in the next few years at least 4,500 new miners will be needed in Kentucky and West Virginia alone. There are only 79,000 U.S. coal miners working today. What will happen when those men are gone? Accidents like the Sago mine incident will only make attracting new miners harder. And with the higher prices being paid for energy, mining companies are reopening older, decommissioned mines that used to be unprofitable. Those older mines could be in bad shape which may lead to more accidents turning potential miners away. With all the modern mining machinery and the great inventions of the last 50 years, there’s still only one way to get coal out the ground. Men have to go get it. When people in the United States turn on their lights, use their electric appliances, watch their TV, use their computers and in many places heat their homes with coal, it’s due a great deal to those men with dirty faces and grimy clothes who work 15 hour shifts below the surface of the earth, doing one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Just this past Wednesday, another miner was killed by a roof collapse in a Kentucky mine. At the funeral of some of the men who died in the Sago accident, a fellow miner gave the eulogy. In his remarks, he said that men who work the mines can stand tall, hold their heads high and say proudly to the world, “I’m a coal miner.” What more could be added to that?

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 14, 2006 3Commanding general Lt. Gen. Dodgen visits Kwajalein, Roi-Namur B y Floating debris can be serious boating hazard Hourglass reportsKwajalein Marine Police would like to remind boaters about the possibility of debris in the lagoon that may present a safety concern. According to KPD Lt. Mike Herrington, a log was spotted by an LCM operator on a regular trip to Ebeye at the end of December. The log measured 3 feet in diameter by 8.5 feet long. It was located 200 yards north of the KB-8 buoy in the Transit lane. “The big problem was the fact it was 7/8 under the water, making it hard to see, and very heavy to hit,” Herrington said. “Any debris can be dangerous. In this case, within an hour the loaded Meck catamaran would have been in very close proximity. If this vessel had hit the log it would have been serious at 20 knots.”This large log was spotted oating in the lagoon by a ferry operator on a trip to Ebeye. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie)Hourglass reportsLt. Gen. Larry J. Dodgen, commanding general, Space and Missile Defense Command/ Army Strategic Command, visited U.S. Army Kwajalein from Tuesday through Thursday. COL Beverly Stipe, USAKA commander said of the general’s trip, “The purpose was a command visit for LTG Dodgen. Among his many responsibilities is to routinely visit each location where the SMDC workforce is assigned Arlington, Va., Huntsville, Ala., Kwajalein, White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, Kodiak, Alaska, and Army Space Support Teams throughout the world (Korea, Iraq, Germany). Kwajalein falls under the deputy commander for Research, Development and Acquisition within SMDC. The USAKA/RTS workforce is responsible for carrying out testing and program development for LTG Dodgen.” According to Les Jones, USAKA deputy garrison commander, the general visited the technical and base operations facilities on Roi-Namur, Meck, Omelek and Kwajalein; conducted a town hall meeting; reviewed current programs, missions, ber optics and discussed future plans for the command with senior government and contractor personnel. At the town hall meeting Thursday the general said, “I enjoyed this trip immensely.” He said he saw a dramatic difference within USAKA since his last visit 17 months earlier. “Things are going very, very well here,” he said. He described USAKA as a “very important place for our nation.” He said that ber optics should be laid to Kwajalein in the next couple of years and that having the ber optics capability within USAKA should attract more commercial ventures, such as SpaceX. He added that the military is going to do more with less. “This was his second visit during COL Stipe’s command tour; we expect that he will visit at least two more times this year in May and July for the Kwajalein change of command,” Jones said. “I learn something new about what we do with each of my visits. I am impressed with how much our Space operations mission has expanded here at USAKA/RTS over the last two years,” Dodgen said.Lt. Gen. Larry J. Dodgen checks the Tradex radar on Roi-Namur, Wedneday. (Photo by Elizabeth Davie) also had a Marshallese boat pick up a plastic bag, overheated its motor and destroyed itself on the reef.” The log was towed by the Marine Police to a pier close enough to lift it out with a fork lift. No damage was done to any vessels. Herrington asks boaters who see any hazards to navigation to report them to Harbor Control immediately. This was not the rst occurrence of hazardous debris is the lagoon. “We have seen refrigerators, furniture, tires and tarps,” he said. “In the past we have had some serious situations. The SR-001 [a police vessel] has had props locked due to lines and large tarps that could only be removed by diving to cut it off. The barge was delayed due to the tug having its prop fouled by a large tire off Ebeye, caused a re in the engine room, it was a major problem. We


Saturday, Jan. 14, 2006 M 4 Recreation fund major support for sports, hobbies, activities Making your S o c c e r Soccer S o f t b a l l Softball V o l l e y b a l l Volleyball P o t t e r y PotteryBy Nell M. Drumheller EditorMost U.S. military installations can be compared to small communities. There are schools, pools, parks, hospitals, housing, a police force and re departments. There are stores, businesses and recreational opportunities. On most U.S. Army installations the recreational side of living is planned and supported through an organization called Morale, Welfare and Recreation. The U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll is a government owned, contractor operated installation and there isn’t an MWR; instead there’s Kwajalein Range Services Community Services. Money for much of the fun stuff within USAKA is provided via a recreation fund. According to Gerry Wolf, USAKA director of Community Activities, “The RecFund is a fund established with non-appropriated funds (pro ts from retail sales and fees) to cover the costs associated with operating community programs and events, business operations (Small Boat Marina, golf courses and bowling), and providing services such as hobby shops, pools and beaches and sports programs.” Kevin Finn, vice president/ deputy program manager KRS community services, described the RecFund, “It is a special bank account administered by KRS for USAKA in accord with provisions in our contract. It is the main vehicle for the Kwajalein recreation system to be funded in part by our community, offering a relatively painless way for each of us to contribute to the great aspects of life on


Saturday, Jan. 14, 2006 nity doesn’t have to “pay back” the U.S. Government for the transportation of goods out to Kwaj, prices here are only based on costs as purchased through either Richmond, Calif. or Honolulu. Another important note is that food items, whether sold in Surfway, Gimbel’s or Ten-Ten, are not subject to pro t goals like the other sales following a DoD [Department of Defense] model of operations, our food stores are exempt from RecFund pro t contribution requirements.” Another important area is the equipment and materials paid for with these funds. Operating equipment for the recreation programs and atoll businesses are largely paid for with RecFund dollars, so year-to-year sustainment of the RecFund system is assured through annual investments in capital equipment and minor construction projects.” More than $1 million per year is contributed by USAKA retail businesses, operated by KRS, to the RecFund. “This is joined by about $600,000 in fees collected in the few businesses where we charge residents for use, such as Small Boat Marina rentals and golf course fees on Kwaj,” Finn said. 5See MAKING FUN, Page 6 P o t t e r y W o o d S h o p Wood Shop B o w l i n g Bowling B a s k e t b a l l Basketballown funKwajalein. We then bene t from great events like our fourth of July celebration and very low cost opportunities for recreation like boating, golf, etc.” He added that a RecFund is similar to an MWR fund. On occasion it has even been proposed that we join the Army’s worldwide MWR pool. The main drawback to that idea has been the way our numbers compare to others in the system. It is likely that our community’s spending would end up supporting investments at other Army installations to a greater extent than the MWR fund would contribute to Kwajalein’s needs.” Funds for the RecFund come from pro ts generated by all retail operations and fees from business operations. According to Finn, the money comes from the community at large, “Residents, visitors (of cial and unof cial) and even our local hire workforce contribute whenever they spend money on goods or services in USAKA retail services, merchandise or food venues. Examples include Snack Bars, Macy’s, Gimbel’s, barber/beauty shops, etc. We also contribute in a couple areas when we pay a fee to golf or bowl or rent a B-boat.” Finn explained, “a modest ‘markup’ is applied to purchase costs on most items to contribute to our annual RecFund needs it should be made clear that our commuS m a l l B o a t M a r i n a Small Boat Marina


Saturday, Jan. 14, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6MAKING FUN, from Page 5 The money is spent on material, subcontract services and KRS labor associated with community recreation and entertainment programs, along with re-investment in equipment for those programs as well as the businesses that contribute to the fund, according to Finn. USAKA has overall responsibility for RecFund dollars, along with direct oversight, and KRS is the agent, per the contract, for the actual expenditures. Finn explained, “Decision making is, as many things on this contract, a joint effort between KRS and USAKA. Minor expenses are approved by KRS alone, while major purchases receive USAKA review. An annual plan is produced by KRS for USAKA review, setting goals for each business and identifying pre-planned spending in recreation and entertainment areas. Retail and recreation operations come under my responsibility in KRS, Community Services I rely on John Doherty, my Community Services business manager, to monitor each and every expenditure, while our KRS Controller assures all nances are recorded and billed appropriately and our Project Controls group monitors our spending against annual budgets. USAKA’s Director of Community Activities Gerry Wolf is heavily involved in overseeing and evaluating our performance and USAKA Resource Management interfaces with and oversees our nancial and budgeting operations. SMDC [Space and Missile Defense Command] even sends independent reviewers out occasionally to monitor our systems and processes and to compare our system to others around the DoD.” Certain base services and facilities are covered by USAKA installation funding, and not the community RecFund. According to Finn these items are typically classi ed as ‘base essential’ and they are funded by appropriated funds on all bases. “Examples include gyms, libraries, chapels and softball elds. It should be noted as well that even our recreation facilities receive some support from USAKA base funds, as the Recreation Operations are sort of like tenants and the facilities are USAKA’s. So many of the costs associated with maintenance of buildings, piers, and the like come out of the annual base budget here,” he said. RecFund spending is not determined by individual requirements. Decisions on funds expenditures are based on program costs, availability of funds and priorities across all recreation and retail activities and programs. “A business plan for each operation is integrated into a USAKA-wide community plan each year. A per-capita approach would not work everywhere, as (for instance) Roi doesn’t have a lot of permanent residents but must be given reasonable access to boat rentals, golf, etc. xed costs from those operations work out to be quite a bit more per person there than on Kwajalein, and that’s just life. We’re proud that we offer a pretty good range of services to our Roi team in spite of the small size of that community. I know that a lot of ‘downtowners’ here are aware that we support Roi residents in this way, and are happy to do so. The services and support provided by permanent Roi residents are some of the most important at USAKA, and we’re lucky to have such a dedicated team there,” Finn said. Many programs within USAKA would not be possible without the RecFund. “Without a RecFund to fuel and sustain our community programs, many of our recreation areas could be downsized or eliminated. A population of 2,500 in the states would not sustain the variety and availability of recreation and entertainment that we enjoy on Kwaj. We’ve all seen that government funding is tight and getting tighter due to the Global War on Terror and other demands the DoD is facing — if we didn’t have our separate RecFund world here, many recreation operations would join the rest of Kwajalein’s groups in shouldering the load of reduced budgets. Fortunately, the way we all help contribute to this system, our most popular rec programs have been relatively unaffected by the budget crunch,” Finn said. For example if there wasn’t a RecFund a boat rental could cost between two and three times the current rate, according to Finn. Wolf agreed, “The actual costs associated with Small Boat Marina rentals, operation and maintenance, would result in a cost of approximately $33 per hour for a B-boat.” According to Wolf, it is impossible to tell what programs would not be offered if there wasn’t a RecFund. “That model would require a completely different mindset and operational mode, as all activities would then have to be funded with appropriated funds. Dollars spent would necessarily be based on priorities of functions, i.e., mission, logistics, infrastructure, etc.,” he said. “I really appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the community in this way, as preserving the viability and bene ts of the RecFund on Kwajalein has always come down on just a few people positioned to make sure it stays healthy. I know that long-time Kwaj residents know all this pretty well, but newer residents (which always comprise a pretty big part of the community) may not realize how our system works. I smile every time I hear someone comment on the ‘contractor’s aim in taking pro ts from a company store’ we don’t, because it’s not our store, it’s USAKA’s. And the RecFund isn’t ours, it’s yours! We work hard to contribute Recfunding into services that affect just about all residents here, and anyone who spends a dollar or uses one of our facilities is a part owner. We aim to serve,” Finn said. Wolf concluded, “The RecFund provides for a great variety of diverse recreational opportunities for the Kwajalein Community. It is important that the residents of Kwajalein understand at least the basics of the Recreation Fund, so they know where the money comes from and where it is spent. The bottom line is that the Recreation Fund comes from the community to support the community. If anyone has additional questions about the Recreation Fund, I would be happy to answer them.” Wolf can be reached at 53371.


The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 14, 2006 7 Feeling no pain Nurse anesthetists play big role in medicineBy Amanda Curtis, RN, and Inge LeBlanc, RN, CCRNKwajalein HospitalNational Certi ed Registered Nurse Anesthetist week is Jan 23-27, and we would like to spotlight our nurse anesthetist, Marian Naretto, CRNA. We cornered Naretto for an interview to tell us about her role as CRNA on Kwaj, and also little about herself, a second-tour Kwaj resident. Q: Give as a brief history of nurse anesthetists. A : Nurse anesthetists have been providing anesthesia care in the United States for more than 125 years. They work as sole providers of anesthesia in collaboration with surgeons and other licensed physicians. CRNAs provide 65 percent of all anesthetics given to patients each year in the United States. Q: What does CRNA stand for? A : Certi ed Registered Nurse Anesthetist. This is an advanced practice nurse in the eld of anesthesia who has passed the national certi cation boards in the science and practice of anesthesia. Q: What is the difference between an anesthesiologist and a CRNA? A : Anesthesia is a recognized specialty in both nursing and medicine. One is a medical doctor who practices the art and science of anesthesia and the other is a nurse who does the same. Both use anesthetic agents to render a patient insensible to pain in diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical procedures. Q: What is the function of the CRNA on Kwajalein? A : Our function and responsibilities on Kwajalein are the same as they are in any city or hospital in the United States. You may meet me in the operating room, obstetrical suite, the intensive care unit, the emergency room, the special procedure room, the radiology suite or in various rooms throughout the hospital and clinic. I am responsible for doing preanesthetic evaluations and implementing an anesthetic plan. I initiate such techniques as general anesthesia, regional (spinal and epidural) blocks, local blocks and sedation to relieve pain, anxiety and stress related to any invasive procedure. I select and administer the drugs and uids necessary to manage the anesthetic, manage the patient’s airway and pulmonary status, facilitate emergence and recovery from anesthesia and follow up during the post-operative period. I am asked by our physicians to implement acute and chronic pain management. I respond to emergency situations by providing airway support and using basic and advanced cardiac life support techniques. Additional responsibilities range from staff teaching to data collection to committee activities within the hospital. Q: What inspired you to become a CRNA? A: The desire to be able to do something real about alleviating a patient’s pain and anxiety. Anesthesia skills seemed to be the answer for me. I have been in the eld over 30 years now (I think I was 10 when I started) and I still nd it interesting and challenging. Every patient presents a new picture for me to evaluate and plan for a safe anesthetic. Q: How long have you been on Kwaj in the role of CRNA? A : A little more than 6 years. Q: What do you enjoy most about your job? A : The feeling that I provide a safe anesthetic environment for my patients. Q: What is it like being on call 24/7? A : I guess you need to try it for a few months to answer that question. I am sure that it is different for each individual. I don’t alter my life in any way due to my call except for two exceptions: a. I don’t drink alcohol b. I am usually within a short distance from the hospital Q: How do you spend your free time? A : Hummmmmmmmmmm…………………........I am tempted to say ‘what free time.’ When I am not in the hospital working, I love to spend time at home with my husband John, walk with friend Marion, roller blade, play tennis and read, read, read. Q: What was your professional background and required training? A : My professional background before I went into my anesthesia training was in coronary care. I also covered ICU [intensive care unit] and ER [emergency room]. The additional training for anesthesia is now a master’s degree program. Q: What advice would you give to people interested in pursuing a career as a CRNA? A : Know that you want to be of service to people. Be ready and willing to give up your life as you know it for several years. This training requires that you give your focused attention and be involved 100 percent. Standards are high for a good reason – someone’s comfort and life can depend on your level of practice. Editor’s note: The commander of Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu Maj. Gen. Gail Pollock, is a CRNA.

In the waning days of World War II, General Douglas MacArthur chose to make good on a pledge that he made in 1942 — that he would return to the Philippines after he and his troops were forced to retreat. However, Macarthur’s determination was more than a matter of pride. Over 500 American soldiers were being held in Cabanatuan, a notoriously brutal prisoner of war camp in the Philippines operated by the Japanese army, and MacArthur wanted to see to it that they made it home. Macarthur chose Lt. Col. Henry Mucci (Benjamin Bratt) to lead the Sixth Ranger Battalion on a mission 30 miles behind enemy lines to in ltrate Cabanatuan and liberate the American prisoners. With the help of Capt. Prince (James Franco), Mucci leads his men on a life-or-death raid against forces known for their savageryMovie ratings G = general audiences, all ages admitted PG = parental guidance suggested, some material may not be suitable for children.
