Klein Distribution..................................C.J. Kemem2 COMMENTARY USAKA Person of the Week Does doing whatÂ’s right ever cross their minds? AnnElise Peterson is a dedicated teacher, always well-prepared for her Home Economics and Health classes. She is enthusiastic, and has a warm smile and special words of encouragement for everyone. She is understanding of her students and realistic about her expectations. She not only is knowledgeable about her subject matter, but she lives the healthy lifestyle that she promotes in class. She is training for her second marathon and sets a great example for her Health students in living a well-balanced life. Mrs. Peterson works tirelessly with her students in promoting strong ideals and goals as a National Honor Society sponsor. She is the driving force behind Coffee Shop, an annual fundraiser hosted by NHS that bene ts schools on Ebeye, and she spends many hours facilitating NHS involvement in volunteering at these schools. NHS members make several trips a year to visit the schools, delivering much needed supplies and working in various ways, such as cleaning out the library of the high school on Gugeegue last year. Mrs. Peterson attends school sports events to show support to her students both in the classroom and out. She is an amazing person. WeÂ’ve always known we couldnÂ’t trust the politicians. We couldnÂ’t trust them with our taxes. We couldnÂ’t trust them to do whatÂ’s really in the best interest of the country and not some lobbyist whoÂ’s stuf ng money in their pockets. But IÂ’ll bet that even the most cynical of us thought we could trust them around children. I guess not. At least not some of them. The recent revelations about congressman Mark Foley, an outspoken proponet of Â‘family values,Â’ exchanging explicit e-mails and text messages with underage male pages was a shock. But whatÂ’s even more of a shock was that the leadership of the United States House of Representatives apparently knew about it for two years and did nothing. House Speaker Dennis Hastert says the parents of a teenage page to whom Foley had sent e-mails two years ago did not want the matter pursued. Excuse me, Mr. Speaker. A matter as serious as a United States Congressman making inappropriate overtures to underage children is a mighty big deal and should have been pursued no matter what. Foley should have been removed from his congressional seat then and there until an investigation could be completed. ItÂ’s not like this has never happened before. A similar incident took place with two congressmen in 1983. If nothing was done with Foley because it would have been a political embarrassment, well, is this less embarrasing? It wouldnÂ’t have been better to handle this two years ago? How can Hastert and others in positions of power not know of the Â‘luridÂ’ nature of those e-mails? The congressman who was in charge of the page program at that time was alarmed enough by FoleyÂ’s e-mails to bring it to HastertÂ’s attention. Representative John Shimkus, who is now in charge of the page program said that new rules wil be implemented to keep pages safe. There have to be new rules to guard those young pages from our congressmen? They have to be protected from the people who are doing the nationÂ’s business? These are the people we want running our government and passing the laws that protect us? These are the people we trust with our country? Boy, that gives me warm fuzzies. Sick, sleazy people who do this kind of thing are to blame for their own actions. But, maybe, even more to blame, are the people who know about it and have the power to stop it, but do nothing or sweep it under the rug or simply get rid of the problem by sending the offender somewhere else. Why doesnÂ’t doing whatÂ’s right ever cross their minds? I donÂ’t understand that thinking. What do they hope to gain by doing nothing? Look at what happened to the Catholic Church when some in power chose to do nothing about pedophile priests. How much loss of credibilty did the church suffer that could have been avoided if the right thing had been done immediately? If the House leadership decided to do nothing about Foley because of politics, then brother, has that back red or what? How much better would it have been to dump Foley two years ago instead of having this blowup right before an election? We all know the old saying Â“with great power comes great responsibility.Â” It would be nice if power came with a little wisdom, too.
The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2006 Pay increases will pace cost of living, merit payincreases will continue 3See ALL HANDS, Page 4Master Sgt. Frank Cota speaks during the all hands meeting on Roi-Namur held on Saturday afternoon. (Photo by Jeff Halliday)Roi-Namur all hands meeting addresses solutions to critical budget cut challenge for scal year 2007 By J.J. KleinReporterFiscal budget 2007, ber optic cable update, and frustration with inconsistency in food availability were topics addressed by Kwajalein Range Services management with Roi-Namur residents at an allhands meeting Saturday. Also in attendance, representing U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander Col. Stevenson Reed and Lt. Col. Justin Hirniak, was Master Sgt. Frank Cota. John Pickler, KRS president, kicked off the forum with a reminder to keep safety a priority and praised the Roi-Namur community for its outstanding safety record. Turning to the fiscal budget, Pickler said, Â“If scal year Â‘06 was a serious challenge for us, then scal year Â‘07 was approaching critical. We all know that a lot of the money from the Federal budget is going to support the Global War on TerrorismÂ…and natural disasters like Katrina.Â” KRS made several concessions when presenting its budget proposals, but was committed to preserving the ability of Roi-Namur to conduct its missions while providing for logistical support and quality of life activities. KRS said it would not compromise on merit pay increases and promised pay increases would keep pace with the cost of living. Working collaboratively with USAKA to brainstorm Â“creative budget solutions,Â” KRS will procure 18 ALTAIR tubes, instead of the six originally slated for purchase, said Pickler, but admitted this was only Â“plugging the damÂ” and studies are underway to nd ways to reduce consumption rate and determine the root cause of the problem. Â“The bottomline is we came out "The bottomline is we came out with, what Col. Reed and I agree, is a very reasonable budget number and I am very optimistic about the projection for 07."Â— John Pickler, president, Kwajalein Range Services
Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2006 The Kwajalein HourglassALL HANDS, from Page 34A large audience was on hand at the Roi-Namur Town Hall Meeting held on Saturday afternoon. Although he did not have any complaints with the quality of food offered, a Roi-Namur resident questioned why there appeared to be a food shortage. Two factors contributed to the inconsistent supply of food and commodities according to Pickler who insisted the problem would get better sooner rather than later. Many of the key personnel involved in ordering food, materials and supplies were part of the Huntsville, Ala. relocation process creating unexpected gaps in the procurement process, said Pickler, and he believes this process should be cleared up now that these employees are in place. Another contributing factor was the change in the shipping schedule from a 28-day to a 14-day cycle when delivery switched from barge to container ship. Â“ItÂ’s a different con guration,Â” said Pickler, Â“a different number of containers coming out of Guam.Â” In addition, added KRS Roi-Namur Operations Manager Floyd Corder, problems with marine vessels necessitated the use of the ferry to transport shipments from Kwajalein, compounded by the breakdown of the crane. The unavailability of the crane allowed only for the transport of one van instead of the usual two vans to allow unloading with forklifts. Another resident suggested a return to occasional extra ights that would allow Roi-Namur residents participation in Kwajalein community events like the 4th of July reworks. He recommended KRS provide a special ight quarterly or once a month. Pickler said KRS would make that possible if it could be assured that seats would be lled. KRS plans to hold another all hands meeting on Roi-Namur in three to four months. with, what Col. Reed and I agree, is a very reasonable budget number,Â” said Pickler, Â“and I am very optimistic about the projection for Â‘07.Â” Pickler informed Roi-Namur residents of a newly-formed joint USAKA and KRS transition team, part of the Space and Missile Defense Command Transformation Program. The team is developing a plan for the installation commander that will lay out goals, objectives and a vision of the future status of USAKA/RTS. Janet Burki, deputy program manager for Logistics, clari ed a question from a previous meeting regarding priority in traveling to Kwajalein for medical appointments. Emergency medical issues receive first priority in getting manifested on a plane leaving Roi-Namur, next are personnel on mission cycle, followed by people with medical appointments on Kwajalein. A Roi-Namur resident opened up the question and answer period with an inquiry regarding the outcome of the employee survey and requested a ber optic update. KRS Human Resources Manager Bob Bills explained the results of the survey, pointing out the areas of community activity services, amenities, cooperation, job satisfaction and medical facilities rated well with Kwajalein and Roi-Namur residents. Compensation and bene ts, personal opportunities, management, food and communication scored the lowest on both islands. KRS identi ed annual home leave, vacation, medical insurance, 401(k) and holidays as bene ts considered most valuable by the workforce with regard to employee retention. Figuring out how to handle the results of the survey within the constraints of budget realities becomes a signi cant challenge for KRS, said Pickler. The human resource team is meeting Â“to lay out some recommendations for us to take to our customer to see what we can do as a team in partnering to improve conditions,Â” continued Picker. On the topic of the ber optic cable, Steve Hill, deputy program manager for Mission Operations, said plans for laying cable are proceeding and the forecast is that it could reach Kwajalein with a projected completion date of June 2008. Another resident asked whether full banking services could be made available on an occasional basis on Roi-Namur. Pickler said KRS could not answer because banking services are a contractual agreement between Community Bank and USAKA, but would make some inquiries. The USAKA representative said he would address this issue with Col. Reed.
The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2006 Bank of Marshall Islands charging check cashing fee5 Hourglass reportsThe Bank of the Marshall Islands, the only Marshallese-owned business operating on U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site, is going to start charging a 1 percent check cashing fee effective immediately. BOMIÂ’s board of directors recently indicated their branch on Kwajalein was not pro table, and they were planning on closing the branch. BOMI said that if they could use the same business model they use on Ebeye and in Majuro, BOMI could continue to do business on Kwajalein. The only change employees will see is that now BOMI will use the same schedule of check cashing fees they employ on Ebeye and in Majuro. BOMIÂ’s continued presence on USAKA/RTS is bene cial to all: RMI employees have the convenience of banking on Kwajalein, and RMI employees do not have to go to Ebeye for nancial transactions, ensuring greater ef ciency for the Kwajalein workforce, and Enniburr residents are able to continue to bank from Roi-Namur.

Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2006 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6 World War II artifact gives a new meaning to reuse, reduce, recycle By Leslie MeadArchaeologistSometimes a single artifact can be a fascinating window into the past. This is the case with the U.S. bayonet brought into the archaeology lab by a Kwajalein Range Services employee. When you hold this artifact, you are touching a rich and glorious history. The story of this blade includes Presidents Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt, an armory founded by George Washington, and two World Wars. The bayonet stands as a testament to U.S. military and industrial strength and exibility. The artifactÂ’s story begins in 1905, when President Theodore Roosevelt determined the bayonet for a newly adopted ri e, the 1903 Spring eld, should be replaced. The replacement was a 21-inch long bayonet with 16inch blade and a wood and steel handle. It came to be called the 1905 Bayonet. Over two million were produced, stamped with the manufacturing arsenalÂ’s initials, date and serial number. If your great or greatgreat grandfather fought in the trenches during World War I, he probably carried it. Between 1939 and 1941, with the WWII looming, Franklin Roosevelt requested an inventory be taken equipment. Of the two million or so 1905 bayonets produced up until that time, only 588,000 remained in the military arsenal. Cutlery and tool manufacturers were immediately contracted to resume production and, by 1943, they delivered over a million and a half of the 1905 pattern weapons, stamped with their initials, date and serial number. In response to comments from the military using the 1905, the government began testing a shorter, 10-inch blade in 1942. The military services were nearly unanimous in favor of the shorter bladed weapon. The new bayonet, identical to the 1905 except for blade length, was called the M1, and by the spring of 1943, it was approved for use. Wartime shortages delayed the production of the M1 bayonet. To bridge the gap, the military contracted to have the existing supply of 1905Â’s shortened for immediate use. To shorten the blade, the manufacturers cut off six inches, formed a new tip and replaced the wood parts of the handle with an early type of plastic. If your father, grandfather, or great grandfather served in World War II or Korea, he probably carried either an M1 or a shortened 1905 bayonet. How does our bayonet fit into this historical timeline? The answers come from the manufacturerÂ’s marks. The initials S A on the blade are the armory mark for the Spring eld Armory in Spring eld, Mass. Established in 1777 by Washington, the Spring eld Armory is the nationÂ’s oldest. The date stamp, Â“1917Â”, below the armory mark is the year it was made. The number Â“655033Â” is the bayonetÂ’s serial number. But our bayonetÂ’s story does not end there; the short blade and bakelite handle tell us it was shortened. The rst clue to when it was shortened is the original 1917 marking and the faint letters stamped on top of the serial number. Early shortening contracts allowed manufacturers to simply stamp their initials over the original manufacture marks. The faint letters stamped on top of the serial number are Â“UFHÂ” for Union Fork and Hoe, the company that shortened the blade. UFH held the biggest of the shortening contracts and delivered the rst ones to the U.S. military in the fall of 1943. Their contract was cancelled in August of 1945. Our bayonet probably began its journey to Kwajalein at the height of WWII. The bayonet arrived on Kwajalein after February of 1944 and, once here, it was recycled into non-military use by local residents. It could be said this weapon of war represents a prime example of the many reduce, reuse and recycle efforts that the American military implemented during WWII and that its subsequent use by local residents was just a logical extension of this effort to conserve resources.The blade of the bayonet is 10 inches and has a dark coating called "Parkerizing". The handle has bakelite grips, an early form of plastic invented in 1917. (Photos by Leslie Mead) SA stands for Spring eld Armory. The ordnance shell with ames signi es the bayonet is the property of U.S. Government military. The bayonet was made in 1917.
