Kemem2 COMMENTARY More shots being fired in war on unions, middle class Think what America would have been like and would be like to this day if there had never been any labor unions. Do you think employees would have ever had a 40-hour work week, overtime, sick pay, vacation pay, health insurance, pensions, safe working conditions or any other bene ts that unions forced on employers? Many workers were injured, many were red and blacklisted from making a living, and some were even killed for trying to form unions in the 1920s and ’30s. In many ways it was a war with workers’ survival on the line. Well, that war is still going on in America right now. It’s the war against labor unions and by extension, against the middle class. It’s been more than 70 years since the National Labor Relations Act guaranteed workers the right to form a labor union if a simple majority wanted one. But, employers have fought back against that law by using a loophole. Even if 100 percent of employees vote for a union, the employer can demand a lengthy, complex process that must end with secret balloting. This process can be drawn out so long that the employer can use the time to threaten, intimidate and even re employees who lobby for a union. Of course, such tactics on the part of an employer are illegal. But, even if they are caught, it takes years for a charge of illegal ring to wind its way through the courts and the National Labor Relations Board. Most workers who have been red can’t wait that long and end up getting another job or even leaving the state to nd work elsewhere. If an employer is found guilty of an illegal ring, the only penalty they face is having to re-hire the worker and paying all back wages owed. But to business, that’s a small price to pay for avoiding labor unions. According to Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Bill Clinton, 50 years ago most employers obeyed the law and allowed workers to form unions and illegal dismissals were very rare. But in later years, businesses faced stiffer competition and more demand from shareholders for bigger pro ts. Employers were pressured to cut wages and bene ts and union-busting became the order of the day. In 2005 alone, there were more than 30,000 complaints of illegal rings because of union activity Reich said. Most polls today show that workers would organize a union if they could, but the process is so cumbersome they rarely get the chance and intimidation and fear of being red is constant. Now, a new piece of legislation, the Employee Freedom of Choice Act, is being considered by the newly-elected Congress. If passed into law, this act would allow workers the right to form unions by a simple majority vote and deny employers the long, drawn-out process they have used to derail union organization. Now, get this. Big business says that this legislation would ‘hurt’ their employees because union organizers and coworkers could ‘intimidate’ workers into joining a union. Gee, I didn’t know they cared. Big business is really looking out for their employees against the bad union people. At least, that’s the version they’d like everyone to buy. That must be why business is spending millions to get this act voted down in Congress. But, they just think about what’s best for their workers. If you buy that, go see that oceanfront property in Arizona they want to sell you too. Let’s face it. We needed unions in the days of the old robber barons and we need them with today’s new robber barons. We need unions as a counterbalance to today’s business CEOs taking home obscene bonuses because they make big pro ts by laying off and outsourcing thousands of American jobs. Heck, sometimes CEOs make millions in bonuses even if they’ve run their companies into the ground and cost thousands of people their jobs. But, of course, business is against this new legislation because they’re just looking out for the workers. If they keep saying it enough I guess they think we’re stupid enough to believe it. The simple fact is that we need labor unions now more than ever. With the in ux of millions of illegal aliens and the cheap labor that comes along with them and the outsourcing of jobs, both skilled and unskilled to foreign countries, American labor needs someone to stand up for them. This is the rst attempt in years to make it easier for employees to form unions. And business and its allies in our government are ghting tooth and nail against it. If unions go the way of the dinosaur, it won’t be just union workers who suffer. I fear a return to those bad old days when employers held all the power. I hope Congress does the right thing and passes this legislation for all of us.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Wednesday, March 7, 2007 3 Witnesses testify before Congress, Army promises changes at Walter Reed Hospital Caring for heroes By Fred W. Baker IIIAmerican Forces Press ServiceArmy leaders are committed to improving the service’s health care systems for wounded servicemembers and their families, top of cers told the national security subcommittee of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Tuesday. The committee held a meeting at Walter Reed Army Medical Center here to gather facts behind problems reported there that have tarnished the once-stellar reputation of the Army’s top medical facility. Part of the problem, Vice Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Richard A. Cody said, is that policies and rules governing many of the health care systems have not been updated for as many as 50 years and have been put to the test by the last ve years of war. “Soldiers and staff are faced with the confusing and frequently demoralizing task of sifting through too much information in too many interdependent decisions and bureaucracies,” Cody testi ed. Cody said top of cials are reviewing the reported problems and already have identi ed some personnel problems that need to be xed. “Our counselors and case mangers are overworked, and they do not receive enough training,” he said. “We do not adequately communicate necessary information, and our administrative processes are needlessly cumbersome and, quite frankly, take too long.” Cody also cited problems that are being xed in the medical holding units where so many of the outpatient problems have been reported in recent weeks. “Our medical holding units are not manned to the proper level, and we do not assign leaders who can ensure proper accountability, proper discipline and well-being of our wounded soldiers, ... and our facilities are not maintained to a standard that we know is right,” Cody said. Many problems now are being corrected, Cody said, but some will require congressional support. He pledged to work with the secretary of defense to report back to the committee changes that require congressional support. “We will do what is right for our Soldiers and our families. They can be assured that the Army leadership is committed and dedicated to ensuring that their quality of life and the quality of their medical care is equal to the quality of their service and their great sacri ce,” Cody said. Dressed in a decorated Army blue uniform, with a patch over his left eye, an emotional Staff Sgt. John Daniel Shannon told the subcommittee today that he just wants to leave the center’s outpatient system. He cited his own two-year pattern of neglect, bureaucracy and lack of patient advocacy. An injured Iraq war veteran, Shannon’s account kicked off nearly ve hours of testimony, which included wounded servicemembers, family members and top ranking Army of cials. With her eyes staring upward to avoid spilling tears, the wife of a wounded Army Soldier told committee members that her husband’s rst case manager at the center “treated him like a dog” at times and that the system was set up to protect the interests of the Army. “We need to turn it around. We need to ght for the Soldier,” said Annette McLeod, the wife of South Carolina Army National Guardsman Cpl. Wendell McLeod. He suffered brain and back injuries while serving in Iraq after being hit by the door of a moving semi-truck. Subcommittee chairman John Tierney opened the hearings saying that the problems recently aired in the news media are not new, complaints of “bureaucratic indifference” have been heard for several years. Tierny conceded, though, that the medical staff at Walter Reed is dedicated and professional. Tierny said he thought the problems stemmed from “institutional indifference, not individual commitment.” Most of the testimony centered on a broken, bureaucratic personnel system and overworked and undertrained caseworkers with other woven-in themes of pay problems, administrative delays and incompatible medical computer systems. Coming to light for the rst time during the testimony was the possible impact of the Base Realignment and Closure process and the recent conversion of government-provided services to contracted services at the hospital. Army of cials testi ed that skilled civil service employees worried about losing their jobs have left the center, at times dropping staf ng amounts by nearly half. Of cials testi ed they’ve had dif culty recruiting to ll the positions because the center is scheduled to merge with National Naval Medical Center at Bethesda, Md., in 2011. In addition, many of the services were moving to contractor-provided services. Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, said he was “extraordinarily angry and embarrassed that we would have a Building 18,” referring to the building cited in Washington Post reports on moldand rodent-infested living conditions. He said he supported the ring of Army Maj. Gen. George W. Weightman, the medical center’s former commander. Schoomaker’s brother, Army Maj. Gen. Eric B. Schoomaker, will become the commanding general of the North Atlantic Regional Medical Command and the medical center, the Army announced Friday. Army Spc. Jeremy Duncan testi ed before the committee that the living conditions varied widely among outpatient soldiers, depending on the building assigned. “Building 18 was like the ghetto,” he said. Schoomaker was asked bluntly by a committee member, “How do we know it’s going to change?” “Because we’re going to change it,” he said.

Each team, made up of 4-6 senior high school teens captained by a high school senior, was identi ed by brightly colored team T-shirts distributed at the rally point. Race positioning was determined by a pre-race event that required team captains to try and ride his or her bike a distance of 20 feet as slowly as possible. The Running an

In this event individual team members raced up Bunker Hill, wrapped themselves in a white bed sheet, rolled down the hill and raced to the other side to hand off the bed sheet to the next team mate. After successfully completing each challenge teams were given a clue which pointed them to their next destination. This clue, “Aaron Burr and the man by this name could have camped here for their duel of fame,” led teams to the last challenge before the frenetic sprint to the nish line at Coral Sands. Finishing rst and one hour ahead of the rest of the field was the purple team, who dominated the competition by remaining in the number one slot from Emon Beach on.

Wednesday, March 7, 2007 The Kwajalein HourglassMore dry weather in future for Kwajalein AtollBy Tom WrightChief Meteorologist, Reagan Test Site WeatherThe waters of the equatorial east and central Paci c are cooling rapidly which is a signal that the current El Nino may be replaced by La Nina conditions in the very near future. Water temperature anomalies in the far, east Paci c have dropped sharply from a peak of plus1.3 degrees C in late December to minus 0.1 degrees C currently. Water temperature anomalies are also dropping in our area, from a peak of plus1.4 degrees C in November to plus 0.6 degrees C currently. El Ninos are often rapidly replaced by La Ninas and this looks to be occurring now. La Nina is characterized by cooler than normal water temperatures across the Pacific, stronger than normal trade winds, and a westward displacement of the typhoon genesis area. While a La Nina would be good news for us in that we would be less likely than normal to see a tropical storm or typhoon as we progress through the year, it would not bode well for our water supply. The last significant La Nina lasted from 1998 to 2001 and caused a total rainfall shortage of nearly 70 inches over that span. Coming on the heels of the strongest El Nino ever recorded, 1998 was the second driest year on record with just 69.11 inches of rain – a de cit of more than 30 inches in just one year. Last year’s El Nino wasn’t nearly as strong as the one in 1997 so we aren’t expecting a repeat of those conditions. There are many factors that determine how much rain we receive so it is impossible to say exactly what any given year may bring. But we are expecting to receive less than normal rainfall in 2007 and if a moderate to strong La Nina develops, the drought may become severe and could last for several years. 6 Healthy teeth, gums can affect general health Jan Budo, RDH and Judy Shimamoto, RDHWhat’s the big deal— it’s just teeth? If that is your attitude then you may want to reassess your thoughts on the topic. As it’s turning out oral health is a big deal. You probably know poor oral hygiene can lead to decayed teeth, bad gums and/or bad breath. But did you know that an unhealthy, bacteria lled mouth may also be connected to others diseases through out your body? Research shows that heart disease, diabetes, respiratory ailments and even premature, low birth-weight babies may all be linked to gum disease. The Journal of The National Cancer Institute, recently reported a link between gum disease and pancreatic cancer. Gum disease is a painless infection of the gums and bone supporting teeth. What is the connection? How does gum disease contribute to these systemic diseases? This remains unclear. Perhaps bacteria from an oral infection travel elsewhere through the bloodstream setting up an infection. Another possibility is that gum infection triggers the immune system producing in ammation elsewhere. Or there may be something else going on. Numerous research studies have shown a link between cardiovascular disease and key bacterium in gum disease. Gum disease can also increase the risk of developing diabetes. In fact diabetics with gum disease have more dif culty controlling their blood sugar levels. It is estimated that 95 percent of Americans with diabetes also have gum disease due in part to an increased susceptibility to infection. Studies have shown that mothers with gum disease are up to seven times more likely to deliver premature, low birthweight babies. Again, how this occurs is far from certain but researchers believe that the body’s response to a bacterial infection may trigger an increase in labor inducing body uids, leading to premature delivery. There may be a lot that is not known about the link between gum disease and systemic disease. But while research continues to explore the connection, it seems prudent to prevent or to treat gum disease to reduce its impact on the rest of the body.

Traditionally World Thinking Day, held annually on Feb. 22, is a day for scouts to focus attention on their participation and membership in a global organization. The Girls Scouts of the United States is one of 144 countries making up the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts according to the Girl Scout Web site. This year’s theme, “Think Globally, Act Locally” encouraged scouts to identify a community issue or problem that had global impact and then take action. Kwajalein scout leaders decided to skip the usual geography presentations in favor of a service learning project where the girls could have a real impact in their ‘back yard.’ “With this in mind, Gift of knowledge Girl Scouts deliver books to Ebeye Librarythe Host Nation of ce was contacted to see if there was something our 5-12year old girls could do to help our neighbors on Ebeye,” said Lora Kendrick, Overseas chairman for the Kwajalein Girl Scouts. “They suggested that we collect books for the public library, and so began our adventure.” So the girl scouts put out the call for books and the Kwajalein community responded. The girls managed to collect from six to seven brown Surfway grocery bags full of books. Twenty-one girls made the trip over to Ebeye to personally deliver their donation on Feb. 16. “The books were well received by the librarian at the public school, who thanked us several times for thinking of them,” Kendrick said. “The girls had a grand adventure,” continued Kendrick. “But most of all they learned to think of others – after all that is what Thinking Day is really all about.” A librarian at Ebeye Public Library smiles at the number of books donated by the Girl Scouts (Photo by Lora Kendrick)
