What never seems to amaze me is how intense recreational sports can be. Why is that? In the past couple of years there have been numerous news stories and articles about the violence of recreational sports; things like little league baseball coaches getting in sts ghts, soccer moms throwing oranges at opposing team players, or my personal favorite (occurring in my hometown nonetheless) a hockey dad taking a hockey stick to a referee’s face. My worst personal experience was when I was 14. I was of ciating YMCA basketball for 5 and 6 year olds. I blew the whistle to line up the kids back into their positions and a child’s dad threw a water bottle at me. Still, these are instances which have occurred on the sidelines. What about instances occurring on the eld? Having witnessed play of three different recreational sports on Kwaj (and I don’t even want to know what goes on in soccer), it seems we are just like everyone else back I would like to take a moment to thank the community for helping make Scuba Doo 2006 a great success. It takes a small army of people to make an event this size run smoothly. Without the countless volunteers that gave us their time, sweat, effort, and so much more, Scuba Doo could never have happened. I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to all of the individual volunteers, local venders who donated auction items and the countless departments and shops throughout the island that contributed to the effort. It is this camaraderie that makes Kwajalein a unique place to live. Together, all of you helped the Kwajalein Scuba Club make a generous contribution to the Divers Alert Network. I had a wonderful time working with such a great group of people. You should all be proud of your efforts. Thank you, — Corey Wiley, Scuba Doo chairpersonThanks for making Scuba Doo a success L e t t e r s t o t h e e d i t o r Letters to the editorThat rumor you heard isn’t trueSee SPORTS, Page 16 There has been a rumor oating around the island, and as the commander, I’d like to set the record straight. I’ve heard people say that U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll intends to cancel the Kwajalein Range Services contract. Wrong! Nothing could be further from the truth. USAKA has every intention of exercising the option which would begin March 1, assuming funding is available, there are no major changes to the requirements and KRS continues to perform as they have in the past. That said, it is true that several KRS positions will be moving to Huntsville later this year. This issue was covered by John Picker, KRS president, at Wednesday’s town hall. You may read a review of that meeting on Page 4 of this issue of The Hourglass. If you hear rumors and want to know the facts, please ask. Call my hotline at 51098. We will do our best to address your concerns either in The Hourglass or at future town hall.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 15, 2006 3Suspicious item requires response from island emergency personnel By Nell M. Drumheller EditorLunch-time traf c and schedules were disrupted Friday when the sighting of a suspicious package was reported to the Kwajalein Police Department. At 11:41 a.m. Thomas Gibson of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll safety of ce called KPD and reported what he described as a suspicious bag between the post of ce and barber shop. KPD responded immediately according to Capt. Jeff Mullin. “Sgt. Chris Kurtzhals arrived on the scene at 11:42 a.m., and attempted to assess the scene. He could not locate a bag, but he did notice a Razor-brand scooter box lying against a garbage can,” Mullin said. Kwajalein Fire Department arrived on the scene at 11:43 p.m. Upon arrival of the Fire department, Deputy Chief Steve Scruton assumed authority as the on-scene commander and established a command post.Fire personnel determined the box to be suspect, and along with KPD established a cordon, evacuated the post of ce and adjacent buildings in an ever-expanding perimeter to an initial distance of 300 feet, Mullin said.The cordoned area grew as all retail facilities out to Ten-ten and Macy’s were evacuated as well as the Caf Paci c, bakery and laundry. Explosive Ordnance Disposal was noti ed of the suspicious package at 11:44 a.m. and arrived at 12: 15 p.m. “EOD UXO [Unexploded Ordnance] Technician I Travis McDiffett, deployed their Mini-Andros II hazardous duty mobile robot to a position adjacent the package,” Mullin said. “Using the robot’s onboard camera, police and re personnel were able to further assess the cordon and direct additional safety measures. Once safety and security was determined to be locked down, McDiffett was able to use the robot’s arm to nudge the package open where it was determined the package was empty.” EOD Team Leader Tom Eisele donned a bomb suit and searched the vicinity of the package for possible secondary devices. K-9 Ramsey performed an additional sweep of the area before the ‘all clear’ was given. The operation from noti cation to all clear took less than two hours.Mullin advised the community on steps to take if they see a suspicious-looking package, “Do not touch the package, make a mental note of the size, shape, color, including any particular identifying features, and position to either the Police or Fire Department—whomever is noti ed rst will call the other for assistance.” Mullin said reports of suspicious packages are not typical within the USAKA community. He added that unattended bags are reported at the airport on an average of 10 or more per year.The report of the bag sighting came shortly after the USAKA community’s force protection was elevated from Alpha to Bravo. Mullin said “The fact that all personnel should be in a heightened state of awareness and report suspect activities is a plus, but according to Measures 16 under FPCON Bravo, building and/or facility managers are charged with inspecting both the interior and exterior of their buildings for suspicious activity, packages, signs of tampering, etc.” Tom Eisele, Explosive Ordnance Team leader, cools down after removing a bomb suit Friday. Eisele searched the area near the post of ce and barber shop for possible explosive devices. (Photo by Nell Drumheller)Kwajalein Police and Fire Departments established a cordon of at least 300 feet from the area where a suspicious package was sighted Friday.

Saturday, April 15, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglassoral statements the teacher made did not come from the letter he referenced. That document spoke to somewhat related topics, but not at all in the way that he indicated. I’m obviously concerned that he left an inaccurate impression with other KRS-team employees. If anybody wants to see the letter that was given to the teachers, it is available through the HR [human resources] of ce.” Another audience member asked when the third pier at the marina would be replaced, providing private-boat owners a location to moor overnight. She asked if some of the funds generated for the RecFund could be used to build the pier or alternatively, whether user fees could pay for it. Burki and Finn both responded to the question saying the cost of the pier was more than what the RecFund or user’s fees could support and there were many other infrastructure repair and replacement projects ahead of the pier project in regular maintenance funding. An audience member asked about retention issues including the possibility of more than one KRS-paid trip off island for vacation. Pickler said scal year 06 funding was tight, but that FY07 might be better. He also said KRS had held seven sensing sessions on retention issues; but that no decisions had been made nor had any recommendations been made to the customer. He said KRS management was determining, “What kind of conditions could we create here that would make people want to remain with us, to stay on the island. Pay and bene ts are right up there among the top, of course. It’s a very complicated thing and we don’t have the answer yet.” Pickler said, concerning trips off island, “We will look at that. But right now our contract provides for the funding of one annual trip.” He said he wanted to ensure employees know they are allowed to take more than one trip annually, though trips after the rst one would be at their own expense. Another question from the audience was about private vendors. The audience member asked, “I wonder if you could tell us what the criteria is for private vendors, what you’re basing it on. And if it’s competition with Macy’s and Macy’s West, doesn’t Internet shopping render that moot?” Pickler responded and said the policy was based on a USAKA regulation “which we are commissioned to implement. I understand there’s a lot going on out there. We are trying to accommodate as much as we can, while at the same time we are required to provide certain services. Internet shopping is in competition with us here. RecFund is supported by purchases, so money goes back into the community.” He compared the situation to purchases at a military exchange 4 Kwajalein Range Services President John Pickler, addressesemployee concerns, issues, safety during two-hour meetingTown hall meeting John Pickler By Nell M. Drumheller EditorRetention, retail options and vendor’s licenses were three of the topics raised by attendees at the town hall meeting Wednesday night in the Davye Davis MultiPurpose Room. John Pickler, Kwajalein Range Services president, hosted the meeting which drew a standing-room-only crowd. Pickler started the two-hour meeting discussing safety and his desire for community involvement, “I ask for a renewed commitment from each and every one of you to safety,” he said. He added, “Safety is clearly our number one priority.” Pickler identi ed relocation of the workforce as an issue of community concern. He said KRS was tasked by the customer, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll, to nd a location in Huntsville, Ala. that would be adequate for a relocated staff; develop a compensation package for relocating personnel and identify between 30 and 50 positions to be relocated. He said 35 positions had been identi ed for relocation,16 people had accepted the relocation package and four of those positions are currently vacant. Department heads Kevin Finn, Trish Wildfang and Janet Burki stood brie y and reviewed projects from their areas of Community Services, Information Technology and Logistics. Finn explained the status of an upcoming maintenance project at Caf Paci c. The six-week project is scheduled to begin the rst part of August. More information will be available in an upcoming Hourglass article. Burki said an ongoing project for Logistics is putting in additional street lights; the installation will continue for the next few months. Wildfang discussed the public Internet. She explained, “We have very old technology supporting the public Internet.” She said the latest rendition of the Public Internet should be in place soon. See an article in a future Hourglass for more information. Attendee questions A Kwajalein high school teacher asked about merit pay increases and what he felt was discrimination within the company against employees with skills that were not in high demand. Both Pickler and Finn attempted to answer his questions, but said an off-line meeting was merited. Finn, in a later interview, responded to speci c statements the teacher made. “John [Pickler] and I spoke to him right after the town hall meeting and reviewed the document he cited in his question. It was a letter that Bob Bills, Dan Frazier and I provided to all teachers last year when teachers were moved into the merit pay system [the same system that applies to KRS employees in all other areas]. I can tell you that the

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 15, 2006 5Vendor licensing issues and retail store facilities were concerns expressed by Kwajalein residents at the town hall meeting Wednesday night in the multi-purpose room. Other topics included remoting of jobs, annual leave, employee retention and safety. (File photos) store where the money goes into the Morale, Welfare and Recreation Fund. Finn added, “We understand commercial vendors bring variety that is well appreciated in the community. We’re kind of caught between these two competing requirements; we’re trying to nd a compromise that lets everyone live without the community RecFund suffering. If we didn’t have the RecFund we would be paying twice as much for each boat rental or golf course membership each year. It’s a pretty important part about what makes Kwajalein a special place. We’re trying to preserve that as well as allow the exibility for commercial vendors. We’ve been discussing it with John; we’re going to discuss it with USAKA.” An audience member challenged both Finn’s and Pickler’s responses saying “I could buy what you are saying if we could walk into TenTen and see a like product, but we can’t.” Another audience member expressed frustration over variety and prices. Pickler commiserated with the audience member, saying “I hear you. It’s a challenge to keep the store stocked with the right things.” He asked audience members to complete customer recommendation forms in retail outlets to assist store managers in understanding the needs of the customers. Commercial vendor licensing continued to be a hot topic with several audience members coming to the microphone to express their opinions. Pickler assured the audience that he was hearing their concerns and would investigate the issues. Moving away from retail questions, an audience member stated it seemed to him that the rat population had not decreased even though when he arrived approximately one year ago there was a ‘great purge underway on island to thin the rat population.” He added that there are still rats in housing, retail stores and work areas. Burki responded to his question and said rat populations go through cycles and they migrate. “You attack one area and they move to another,” she said. “We live on an island, barges arrive, planes arrive and rats arrive,” she said. She asked the community for assistance, “You can help by calling the service desk so we can capture the information, so we know the problem areas.” Another audience member asked if banding the trees would improve the situation. Burki said there were mixed opinions on whether or not banding was effective. Another concern had to do with the adult pool. An audience member said he had gone to the pool on Tuesday and that it was in “terrible shape, green and gross.” Simone Smead, Community Services manager, said part of the reason for that was because the pool is cleaned on Wednesdays and so it is always at its worst on Tuesdays. She said the adult pool needed new paint and some repair work for pitting, cracks and an aged foundation. Private use of the Kabua Room at the Yokwe Yuk Club was brought up. An audience member asked why private groups can’t use the Kabua Room for non-catered events. Steven Cummings, Food Services manager, responded saying the Yuk Club is a hospitality venue and food services is in the business of catering. Pickler added that KRS is charged with protecting the community in public health and safety issues. Pickler, in response to an audience question, said he was available to the community via e-mail, phone or if seen around the community. But he recommended KRS community members use the chain of command to express their concerns because he would use those subject matter experts to get his answers. He added that the employee hotline is an option to community members and that KRS has an Employee Concerns Program headed by Stacey Chados, the KRS ethics of cer. The hotline number is 55577 or 55327. Chados’ personal line is 50839. Pickler said he would hold more town hall meetings in the future, but did not identify when the next one would be.

Saturday, April 15, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Dinner dance will feature musical variety byThe Paci c's Most Dangerous Band dinner by food services, ballroom dancing Let’s danceHourglass reportsThe 18th Annual Ballroom Dinner Dance is scheduled for 6 p.m., April 23 in the Davye Davis MultiPurpose Room on the high school campus. “This is an opportunity to dress up and enjoy an evening of great music, dancing and dinner,” Dick Shields, KHS band director said. The Kwajalein High School Stage Band, also known as The Central Paci c’s Most Dangerous Band will play jazz, swing and Latin tunes throughout the evening. Kwajalein Range Services Food Services will provide a four-course dinner featuring chicken breast with prosiutto, asiago cheese and sage. The seventeen-member stage band has been a part of the school music program for many years. “In the late 1980s, former Kwaj resident Nate Jackson was planning a small party for the dance class that he taught and heard the stage band rehearsing a couple of swing tunes for their next concert. He asked the band to share their music at his party. At the time, the band knew only four dance songs, but they were such a success, that the dancers had them continue repeating those same four songs,” Shields said. According to Shields, since then, the band has enlarged its repertoire. The group routinely learns thirty to forty songs each year, beginning rehearsals in August to prepare for the dance. Band alumni have gone on to play in university jazz groups and former band member Andrea Lindborg returns often to rehearse with the band and perform for the Kwajalein community. Current members often double on various instruments to cover the instrumentation needs of the many ensembles in which they perform. Shields is the group’s leader and a saxophone player. The student soloists study improvisation to give authentic interpretations to the jazz classics by such greats as Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Glenn Miller and Count Basie. The band performs musical styles for swing, fox trot, cha cha, salsa, and even a couple of waltzes. In the past, even the idea of a dress-up event takes on a very local appearance, with dancers in tuxes and fancy dresses along side others in island formal, according to Shields.“Whether you want to dance the night away, or sit and enjoy the sounds of this accomplished student band, don’t miss the opportunity to attend the Ballroom Dinner Dance,” Shields said.Proceeds from the dance cover the meal and decorations, and according to Shields, “in most years, a little extra to help purchase new music for the following year’s dance.” Tickets are available from Cris Lindborg at 52935, or Dick and Cheryl Shields at 51684.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 15, 2006 7 Toxic danger Inhalants cause damage to brain, nervous system By Inge LeBlanc RN, CCRN Kwajalein HospitalAn average of 598,000 youth, 12-17, initiated inhalant use in a 12-month period, based on data from 2002-2004, according to a new report by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. This is 1.8 million new initiates to inhalants in three years. The data in the report was extracted from three years of the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Thirty percent of those initiating inhalant use in that period were ages 12 or 13, while 39.2 percent were ages 14 or 15 and 30.8 percent were ages 16 or 17. The majority of these youth were white and from homes with incomes well above the poverty line. The report, Characteristics of Recent Adolescent Inhalant Initiates, indicates the most popular categories of inhalants for those who are recent initiates to the habit are glue, shoe polish or toluene (30.3 percent used); gasoline or lighter uid (24.9 percent used); nitrous oxide or “Whippets” (24.9 percent used); spray paints (23.4 percent used); correction uid, degreaser or cleaning uid (18.4 percent used); other aerosol sprays (18 percent used); amyl nitrite, “poppers”, locker room deodorizers or “rush” (14.7 percent used); and lacquer thinner or other paint solvents (11.7 percent used). Harvey Weiss, National Inhalant Prevention Coalition executive director, noted “The intentional misuse of common, everyday household products continues to rise for our youngest children. The unintended consequences of these choices can plague a child for years and, in some instances, be fatal, even at rst time experimentation. Now is the time to marshal our collective efforts to reduce and prevent inhalant experimentation and abuse – our children’s future may depend on it.” “The problem of inhalant abuse remains particularly serious among 8th-graders, who may be unaware of the damage inhalants can cause,” Nora D. Volkow, M.D., Director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health said. “Inhalants can harm the brain, liver, heart, kidneys, and lungs, and abuse of any drug during adolescence may interfere with brain development and increase the risk of addiction.” Inhalant abusers risk an array of devastating medical consequences. Prolonged snif ng of the highly concentrated chemicals in solvents or aerosol sprays can induce irregular and rapid heart rhythms and lead to heart failure and death within minutes of a session of prolonged snif ng. This syndrome, known as “sudden snif ng death,” can result from a single session of inhalant use by an otherwise healthy young person. Sudden snif ng death is particularly associated with the abuse of butane, propane, and chemicals in aerosols. Inhalant abuse also can cause death by:• Asphyxiation from repeated inhalations, which lead to high concentrations of inhaled fumes displacing the available oxygen in the lungs; • Suffocation from blocking air from entering the lungs when inhaling fumes from a plastic bag placed over the head; • Convulsions or seizures caused by abnormal electrical discharges in the brain; • Coma the brain shuts down all but the most vital functions; • Choking from inhalation of vomit after inhalant use; or • Fatal injury from accidents, including motor vehicle fatalities, suffered while intoxicated. Animal and human research shows that most inhalants are extremely toxic. Perhaps the most signi cant toxic effect of chronic exposure to inhalants is widespread and long-lasting damage to the brain and other parts of the nervous system. The neurotoxic effects of prolonged inhalant abuse include neurological syndromes that re ect damage to parts of the brain involved in controlling cognition, movement, vision, and hearing. Cognitive abnormalities can range from mild impairment to severe dementia. Other effects can include dif culty coordinating movement, limb spasms, and loss of feeling, hearing, and vision. Inhalants also are highly toxic to other organs. Chronic exposure can produce signi cant damage to the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys. Although some inhalant-induced damage to the nervous and other organ systems may be at least partially reversible when inhalant abuse is stopped, many syndromes caused by repeated or prolonged abuse are irreversible. National Inhalants Prevention Coalition information is available on the web at www.inhalants.org. SAMHSA’s data is available at www.oas.samhsa.gov. NIDA inhalants ndings are at www.inhalants.drugabuse.gov.

Dave Spritz (Nicolas Cage) is a television weatherman on a high-pro le Chicago news program. Professionally, he is doing just ne — he makes great money for a job that demands little effort, and he has a shot at an assignment with a network morning news and chat show. But his personal life leaves a lot to be desired — his father a respected author (Michael Caine), is in failing health, he’s divorced from his wife, Noreen (Hope Davis) and his relationship with his children is tenuous at best. Munich is a Steven Spielberg movie based on the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany, when eight masked Palestinian terrorists invaded the Olympic village, killing two Israeli athletes and abducting nine others. The kidnappers demanded safe passage out of Germany in addition to the release of Arab prisoners in Israeli and German prisons, but when they arrived at the Munich airport they were met by German police and military forces, and in the melee that followed, all nine hostages were killed. In the wake of the killings, the Israeli government gave Mossad, the nation’s intelligence agency, a special assignment — to track down and eliminate the Palestinians responsible for the death of the Israeli athletes. King Kong in the early 1930s, Carl Denham (Jack Black) is a daring lmmaker and adventurer plans a lm set on Skull Island. Needing a beautiful actress willing to take a risk, Denham nds Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts), a beautiful but down-on-her-luck vaudeville performer and offers her the role; she strikes up a romance with Jack Driscoll, a respected playwright hired by Denham to write the script for his latest epic. Skull Island is a sanctuary for prehistoric life, and lording it over the dinosaurs and other giant beasts is Kong, a twenty ve-foot-tall gorilla who can out ght any creature on Earth. Skull Island's natives kidnap Darrow, giving her to Kong as an offering to appease the giant beast. Eventually, Driscoll nds Darrow and Denham outwits Kong, intending to take the giant ape back to New York for display.

Where is the fun? We are not professional, minor league or collegiate athletes. We don’t get paid big bucks or big scholarships to play these sports, yet the environment surrounding our sports is extremely intense and sometimes the playing eld gets violent. We have a ‘no contact’ rule on this island, but it seems in every recreational sports league, we have managed to nd a dirty way to get around it. Are we not grown adults here? Are we not participating in these sports as a form of recreation? Are we not doing this for fun? If you want to see what should take place in a recreational sports league – watch the two high school teams play against each other in water polo, watch the Criminals/Miss Demeanors Co-Ed Softball game at the end of the season, watch Cardale Tademy coach the Spartans II basketball team or watch Sue Boughen coach the Kwajalein Swim Team’s youngest kids.
