We appreciate those of you who donated plants, time, energy and tasty treats. It was a fabulous occasion and wouldn't have been so without the community coming together to make it happen. —— Michele Cheatham Have you been paying any attention to news about the Medicare prescription drug bene t that’s been touted as the greatest thing since canned beer? Apparently it’s been a complete nightmare for hundreds of thousands of elderly Americans and the pharmacies they’re trying to get their drugs from. Many who thought they were signed up for one of the who knows how many confusing plans tried to get prescriptions lled only to nd out they were nowhere to be found on any list. Einstein might have a problem guring this system out much less elderly folks who aren’t too sharp anymore. When these people or the pharmacies would call the government help lines, they were put on hold forever or the lines were constantly busy and they couldn’t get through at all. Many states are having to jump in and issue emergency legislation to get people covered and to assure pharmacies they will get paid. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was so sure the government plan wouldn’t work correctly, he already had a plan in place before the new program started. Pharmacies have been told by the federal government to give needed drugs to anyone who is having a problem and the government will pay them for it when things are smoothed out. So right now, there are a lot of pharmacies not knowing if they’ll ever see any money. All they have is a government promise to pay them. Hopefully, given time, the situation will be recti ed and things will operate more smoothly. Just for the heck of it, I checked out some of the Web sites to try getting information on some of the Medicare drug plans. Now, I’ll admit I’m not the brightest bulb in the xture, but I don’t consider myself stupid either. I have to say though that trying to gure this stuff out almost made my head explode. The premiums vary depending on many different factors, and there are many con icting formulary lists. How much do you know about how this program works? Do you know how much it pays for what? If you’re anywhere near my age and thinking about retiring some day, you might like to be in the know. Here’s some of the breakdown of what would be paid for your drug costs. For $0-250 of drug costs, Medicare pays nothing. For $250-2,250 of drug costs, Medicare will pay 75 percent up to $1,500. You would pay the remaining 25 percent up to $500. Does it sound okay so far? Well, get this. For $2,250-5,100 of drug costs, Medicare pays . are you ready . nothing! That’s right, nothing. This is what is being called the ‘donut hole’ or ‘coverage gap.’ What it means is once Medicare has paid $1,500 of your drug costs, coverage stops until an additional $2,850 out-of-pocket expense has been paid by you. Your total out-of-pocket including the initial $750 would be $3,600. I don’t know how you would gure it, but with the price of drugs these days, how long would it take for a lot of elderly people to fall into that donut hole? So where did that hole come from? It was supposedly a mechanism to control costs while providing basic and catastrophic drug coverage. In other words, somebody gured out that between $2,250 and 5,100 is the

Drumheller EditorKwajalein Range Services management has received concerns from the community on several issues. The following is a list of concerns and responses from various KRS leaders. Q. KRS brags about having gone over 4 million hours without a work-stoppage accident in the workplace. While avoiding accidents in the workplace is important and should be stressed and is of primary concern at all times, other concerns of employees are also important. It shouldn’t be forgotten the employees are the heart and soul of any successful company. They are the ones who make things happen and actually determine whether a company will be successful. It seems that KRS has either forgotten or doesn’t care about these other concerns. The focus is on making things ‘look’ good, as opposed to working toward making good things happen. A KRS President John Pickler responds: You are right that KRS has been pushing the safety message hard, and we will continue to do so. Safety affects everybody on Kwajalein Atoll. And nothing, not even getting the work done, is more important than safety. Furthermore, safety professionals tell us that safety begins with safety awareness. Everybody needs to keep safety in the front of their minds and that won’t happen without energetic reinforcement. We simply cannot coast on safety awareness. You are also right that safety is not the only message we need to get out. KRS is working hard on the issues described in this article, and on many others. We can and should do a better job communicating how we are doing, even when it’s not good news. Watch for improvement in this area, and let us know if you don’t see it. Q At Caf Paci c, where half the island eats, the quality of the food seems to be declining. And very few that work there seem to really care. A : Community Services responds: We are sorry you are dissatis ed. Preparations of our entrees are closely monitored for quality and consistency and our cyclic menu remains constant with the exception of specialty meals and product availability. Of course, wherever food service is involved there is a large element of personal taste, but customer satisfaction surveys collected by both KRS and U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll re ect a very high percentage of favorable responses, stating that quality and variety of meals and services here are appealing and consistently good. We want all patrons to know that Caf Paci c staff strives to provide a variety of quality products and service to the community, and to listen to and act upon comments and suggestions from our patrons. Caf Paci c’s management staff welcomes your comments. We are always available to answer any speci c concerns you may have. Q. KRS is still having problems with the TV stations even after two years of false promises. We continue to experience two or three stations going off the air at once, pictures freezing for 5, 10 and even 15 minutes at time, resulting in missing parts of the program, sound going off and constant interference with the program. A : Community Services responds: The problem is occurring with the channels that come to Kwajalein via the Huntsville, Ala. DS3 data line (Spectrum, movies, family and Atlantic). This DS3 line is the carrier of Reagan Test Site mission data that also provides our Internet and long distance telephone service. As all Internet users know, community usage of this service is on a non-interference basis to range missions so interruptions are possible. Soon after the Huntsville channels signed on the air in late 2004, it was discovered that the equipment used to encode and decode signals was unable to recover from loss of digital information that is normal on a DS3 transmission line. As a result, the connection has to be restored manually each time. These losses occur independent of mission usage, and result in sound loss on all the Huntsville channels. Since then, much effort has gone into testing next generation encoding/ decoding technologies from different manufacturers. To keep channels on the air in the interim specially-programmed personal computers from the Information Technology department have been decoding these signals. IT’s help is greatly appreciated because without it we’d probably have lost the new channels entirely. The PC decoders don’t drop audio like the original ones, but do lock up sometimes (hence, the blue wIndows view on your TV). We are unclear on your reference to promises from KRS on this subject we have reported that PC decoders are only an interim improvement, and diligently worked to identify a lasting solution. As with many things on Kwajalein, technical problems aren’t the only ones we face, so we’ve coordinated closely with USAKA on budgetary implications of the situation as well. The good news is that testing has been completed, USAKA has reviewed results and endorsed our recommendation and new equipment has been purchased. It was received on Kwajalein and in Huntsville this week and we are con dent that real improvement will be evident within a week or so as we complete installation. Being transmitted digitally, there will likely still be pixilation effects from time to time in the video, and brief interruptions are possible if data dropouts reach signi cant magnitude. The main strength of the decoder we tested has the ability to reset on its own when that occurs, so you shouldn’t miss more than a few seconds of your favorite program. We hope you agree that additional variety from the added channels is worthwhile after you see the performance of the upgraded decoders. AFN Kwajalein has also been experiencing problems recently with some of the antennae that are located high on our transmitting towers, particularly in severe weat her. This speci cally

Saturday, Jan. 28, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass By Elizabeth Davie ReporterLast week Kwajalein Police Department’s four handlers and their dogs were in school. According to Lt. Mike Bucher, 4 Police dog Tanja leaps for her reward after successfully nding drugs during a training exercise (Photos by Lt. Mike Bucher)School’s in for dogs, KPD, Deputy Frank R. Campbell of Pinellas County, Fla. conducted the training. Campbell works as a patrol/narcotics dog and oversees training for an 11-dog unit in Florida. “He has trained with the Royal Dutch Air Force, French National Police in Europe, trained more than 60 patrol, bomb, and narcotic dogs, and has over 25 years’ experience in the K-9 eld,” Bucher said. The advanced canine detection training was conducted Jan. 1120. It was an eighty-hour training course. Sgt Brad Walker, senior trainer said, “Our training days uctuated in their length and timeframes. This exibility afforded us the ability to train in as many situations, environments, and conditions as possible.” “This course will provide the department’s handlers with the tools and/or means to understand and apply the principles of classical and operant conditioning; while simultaneously providing an update in the latest trends in dog training, smuggling techniques, and investigative techniques,” Campbell said. When asked why this training is important, Campbell said, “No matter what job we have, each of us need to receive continuing education; the handlers, as well as the dogs need to maintain their pro ciency and learn new methods for Of cer Andy Black and dog Iron are ready to search.

Brad Walker, in search of a drug training aid. handlers department inline with handling practices/procedures of the U.S. Customs, U.S. Secret Service, as well as the majority of the large stateside police departments,” Bucher said.After the training, the handlers and the dogs learned something from Campbell. “One of the most important points Deputy Campbell made, was for the handlers to make the training fun for the dogs; creating the atmosphere of playtime during work is one of the keys to success,” Walker said.“The department and K-9 handlers genuinely appreciate the willingness of Deputy Campbell to share his 25 years of canine handling/training experience, knowledge, advice, and wisdom. The newly-gained knowledge he has imparted has proven to be invaluable and extremely tangible; both he and his training have afforded the department the capability of drastically increasing its canine detection capabilities,” Bucher said. Sgt. Noel Bishop rewards Nora for nding the hidden training aid.

Saturday, Jan. 28, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6DONUT, from Page 2 Dark of night Street light outage repair is no easy taskaverage most elderly are paying for their drugs and thus, the ‘hole’ was born. But as far as controlling costs are concerned, according to some reports, prices paid by the Medicare program for the most commonly prescribed drugs are 60 percent higher than prices in Canada and some 3 percent higher than at discount pharmacies in the United States. In addition, there is a provision written into the law that the government can’t negotiate with drug companies for lower prices. I think maybe the drug lobbyists and insurance companies had a lot of in uence over this legislation. Many economists say the program is going to cost taxpayers a fortune, while doing nothing to lower drug prices. Does the plan provide people with what they really need? With the maze of plans in the Medicare system, depending on the formulary of the plan someone might choose, a situation could arise where a drug not covered by that plan is prescribed and the total cost of that particular drug would be at the person’s expense. And, once a plan is chosen, it can’t be switched for any reason. So people would be stuck with a plan even if it doesn’t cover changing needs. But I suppose it’s like my wife says. It’s better than nothing. The good news is if you were paying more than $5,100 for your drugs, then Medicare would pay 95 percent. So if you’re going to be elderly and sick, be really, really sick and get into that magic $5,100 range. There’s so much more involved in this that a lot of people smarter than me have trouble guring it out. If you’re getting on in years and retirement is getting closer and closer, you might want to get busy checking these things out and be aware of what the deal is. Don’t wait until the day before you retire to start thinking about all this. Having good medical and drug coverage could mean the difference between living decently in retirement or choosing whether you eat or get your medicine. By Elizabeth Davie ReporterLet there be light. Well, Kwajalein Range Services Public Works department is working on it. As most island residents have noticed, some of the street lights on Lagoon and Ocean Roads are out. According to Fred McNickle, Public Works manager, there are 10 street-light circuits on Kwajalein, most of which are 50-plus years old. “These circuits are wired similar to the old type Christmas tree lights in series so when one goes out they all go out. Public Works is in the process of replacing these circuits with new lights installed to eliminate this type of situation. The new systems will be designed to enable electricians to locate the problem quickly since it will be isolated to a de nable circuit,” McNickle said. He explained the outage is due to faults in the circuit. “Troubleshooting by PW personnel is ongoing and has been for more than a week. This is no easy task, in order to give you an idea of the magnitude of this ‘search’ quantitatively the following is provided: There are 67 lights with potentially four main sources of failure at each light which means there are potentially 268 failure points to be checked, and this does not include the thousands of feet of cable between the lights that could be a failure point at several locations.” McNickle would like residents to know troubleshooting has been ongoing seven days a week since the problem was identi ed. This has revealed six separate failures so far which have been repaired and has about two thirds of the lights in the circuit presently working. “As you can see, this is a slow, tedious task that will take time, so we ask your patience,” he said. During this time, Dick Nugent from Kwajalein Range Services Safety Of ce would like to remind all residents in the area affected by the street light outage to leave their front porch lights on from dark until dawn. Nugent also suggested all bike riders use lights, all pedestrians, joggers, walkers, etc. wear light colored clothing and/or re ective clothing when out at night, stay on the left side of the road, facing traf c, and use the sidewalks where available. “We operate and live in an area where industrial operations occur in the same area where we live and play. We must always be cognizant of that. Bike and pedestrian safety is most important, especially during dark hours. It is up to each of us to see and be seen. Use your light and exercise caution,” Nugent added.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Jan. 28, 2006 7 Disney World-type trams replacing island bussesHourglass reportsIn mid-February the shuttle bus service on Kwajalein will change. “We will be replacing a bus with a prime mover and two passenger tram trailers. These trailers seat 25 passengers and have a baggage storage area. The system is primarily a people mover, the kind you may see at Universal Studios or Disney World moving patrons from parking areas to the theme parks,” Alan Metelak, supervisor Automotive Operations/ Production Control, said. “The new tram system will make loading and unloading of passengers much easier and safer. With only a single 15-inch step adults and children will have an easier time climbing aboard. Also loading luggage will be more convenient,” he added. The route won’t change, however, to go from one end of the island to the other will require a transfer. “When the new tram service starts it will be dedicated to the housing area up to 9th Street and will have a speci c schedule. A second article will post the new schedule and educate the public of safety do’s and don’t’s,” Metelak added. Customer satisfaction is key. “Since we are making some major changes we will be open to input from the community so that we may provide the best service within the current budgetary con-Hourglass reportsSome areas in Kwajalein waters are no shing zones. U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Regulation 385-9 pertaining to recreation water safety identi es Areas 2 and 3, the land ll area except the Shark Pit and Area 6, the harbor area from the north side of Echo pier to the south side of the Fuel Pier as no shing areas. “Fishing is prohibited at certain areas around Kwajalein Island due to suspected build-up of heavy metals in the tissue of certain sh species. In other words, the sh could be toxic to humans upon consumption. No shing signs are placed at all major entry points to prohibited shing locations,” Suzanne Pyle, Kwajalein Range Services Environmental manager, said. “This is a public health and safety issue as well as an environmental issue. We have studies planned in 2006 to determine more about the potential health risks in these areas. These areas may be reopened for shing once the studies are complete, if the heavy metals can be removed or otherwise made inaccessible to marine organisms,” Ken Sims, chief USAKA Environmental Management Of ce in the directorate Gone shin' in wrong spot Fishing prohibited in some atoll areasof Public Works, said.According to Pyle the Kwajalein Police Department and the Marine Police will enforce the regulation and will ticket anyone found shing in the prohibited areas. “The Small Boat Marina staff is fully aware of the regulation and will contact KPD for enforcement as necessary,” she added. Typically dozens of anglers sh the Kwajalein waters each week. According to Pyle there are no endangered species in these waters. Sims said there are no catch limits imposed by law; the anglers regulate themselves. There are rules that regulate the type of equipment used in some Kwajalein waters. “Spear shing is not permitted when people are swimming in the nearby water or within 300 feet of the Emon Beach ropedoff area on Kwajalein. Spear shermen must remain at a safe distance from other people in the water to prevent spear injuries. In addition, 385-9 speci es that any explosive powder or air-actuated device used underwater to kill sh or dispatch sharks is not authorized at USAKA,” Pyle said. According to Sims the no shing area maps will be in the 2006 phone book. ditions,” he said. While the new system will only be used on Kwajalein, Metelak said in the future additional shuttles may be added both on Kwajalein and on Roi-Namur. Metelak is con dent the new system will have a longer life than the buses used now. “This system should last much longer than a bus because of the type of construction (mostly aluminum and plastic). There are also pull down rain curtains that will be operated by the passengers,” he said. “We encourage the public to watch the Window on the Atoll on the new tram system which will show how the system will work and any safety issues everyone should be aware of,” he added.

Caruso’s Two for the Money stars Matthew McConaughey as Brandon Lang, a former college quarterback whose life plans changed when he suffered a career-ending injury. Brandon turns out to have remarkable skill at picking winning football bets. Eventually, he comes to the attention of Walter Abrams (Al Pacino), a very successful business tycoon who runs a giant gambling operation. Walter brings Brandon to New York and introduces him to a glitzy, fast-paced, moneydrenched lifestyle that Brandon eagerly soaks up. When Brandon’s magic touch begins to falter, Walter starts to turn on is protg. Soon the two men are attempting to outwit each other, with Walter’s wife (Rene Russo) caught in the middle. The Gospel Close friends become unexpected rivals as they struggle to keep their spiritual home alive in this musical drama from writer and director Rob Hardy. David (Michael J. Pagan) and Frank (Sean Nelson) are two close friends who are members of the same Baptist church in Atlanta. The teenagers have developed a deep and abiding faith in Christ, and both aspire to become ministers some day; David, who has also become a star vocalist with the choir, is thought to have a head start since his father is the congregation’s pastor, Bishop Taylor (Clifton Powell). However, David’s faith is shaken when his mother dies while giving birth to another child, and when Bishop Taylor fails to arrive at the hospital in time, David runs away from home, turning his back on his father and his church. Fifteen years later, aging Bishop Taylor has announced he’s retiring, and Frank (Idris Elba), now a reverend, seems poised to take his place. However, the church is in dire nancial shape, and no one is sure how long Rev. Frank’s ock will have a church to call home.

CONCERNS, from Page 3 affects Channels 9 and 13. As a result the transmitters have been occasionally shutting themselves off to avoid damage To troubleshoot and repair the problem, AFNÂ’s engineers and the Kwajalein maintenance crew have been working on the towers when winds are below applicable safety limits When they do this, all the TV channels and the FM stations must cease broadcasting for obvious safety reasons. We believe that your comments above pertain to the longer-term issue described above, and not these maintenance outages. Q. ItÂ’s been more than six months since KRS has had a town hall meeting to address some or any of the concerns of its employees. Either KRS doesnÂ’t care to hear some of these concerns as to the quality of life of their employees or KRS is satis ed with the status quo of the way things are, that of getting worse and worse each day. A Acting KRS Deputy Site Manager Steve Metta responds: KRS agrees this is overdue.

We provide several avenues for our employees and residents to provide concerns/suggestions in addition to the town hall meeting. These include; USAKAÂ’s Customer Satisfaction Survey that can be accessed at http://www.smdc.army.mil/kwaj_ cs_survey/admin.asp; the drop box survey located at each retail and food facility; the Sensing Integrated Product Team; and the Quality of Life IPT. As in the past, town hall meetings are conducted jointly by the USAKA commander and the KRS president. During the last six months there have been challenges in scheduling a town Hall meeting due to the mission schedule, distinguished visitors coming to Kwaj, and TDY commitments. We are presently in the process of establishing a date for the next town hall meeting conducive to all parties; this should take place in the near future.Q. KRS recently announced a new public Internet connection program for the entire atoll that will help reduce unwanted island SPAM as well as help the IT department trace where such spam is coming from. KRS made this system mandatory for personal computers by a certain date. However, once it was installed, the system didnÂ’t work. WhatÂ’s going on? A KRS IT responds: The rollout of the public Internet improvements was delayed due to a hardware failure of one of the key components. A revised implementation schedule for the rollout will be announced soon. Users should hang onto the username and password that was issued to them, as they will be using that account when we do go live with the new system. Also, a slight correction to the question: the updates to the public Internet do not address SPAM. The purpose of the public Internet update is to identify home machines broadcasting viruses and/or malicious traf c. This can happen even without the ownerÂ’s knowledge. Because KRS IT is not your home e-mail provider, we cannot block SPAM for your home e-mail. Home users should contact their mail provider to nd out what capabilities are available for blocking SPAM. Consumer software is also available for this purpose.
