Raising your voice does not help someone understand anything except how rude you are. Resident thinks Quarters of Quarter insensitiveBy Tamara Ward“Beauty’s only skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah” As popular as this song by The Temptations used to be, I never used to like it. I think my main problem was I felt like it seemed to put across the idea that nice and good-hearted women only look mediocre at best, and pretty girls were supposed to be evil and conniving at heart. It seemed a bit too judgmental and generalizing to me. I still feel the same way, but I heard it (the song) recently and the investigative journalist in me wanted to delve into it a little deeper. First, what are pretty girls and mediocre girls supposed to look like exactly? I polled some friends and at rst most people said they saw the “pretty girl” as always looking well put together: hair always done, makeup awless, a smile always on her face and the ‘mediocre’ girl as maybe having more than one bad hair day a week, makeup being pretty much lip gloss on a daily basis, and style of dress with more of a classic look instead of the latest fashion. I started to notice something in the faces of the women as they started talking about the mediocre women, and its as if they instantly starting seeing the resemblance between themselves and the mediocre lady they were describing. Why is it so easy for women to see other women as pretty and not themselves as much? I myself have even been guilty of saying, “I know I’m not To the person who stole all of the bike lights and bike computers from the children’s bikes at swim team practice last week. Some of the lights were acquired at the bike rodeo and are now gone. We hope that you need them more than the 5-8 year olds who owned them. L e t t e r t o t h e e d i t o r Letter to the editor As a bachelor quarters resident, it is my opinion that The Hourglass article “quarters of the quarter,” promoting better housekeeping is not for the majority of residents. To say that this was an encouragement of “quarters of the quarter” is in distaste. The morale at this time, in my opinion, is at an all-time low. I believe it is ridiculous to have the island vote on who has the better interior when there are people who are going to lose their trailers in the near future. I found, as a whole, this to be very insensitive and inappropriate. I am not sure about others on the island, but I for sure do not really care what the interior of someone’s house looks like, nor do I want to vote on who has a better government-furnished home. This is just my opinion. — Bridget RankinTo people who leave shing hooks and lures on Emon Beach that get under the sand so children and adults can step on them and injure their feet.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 29, 2007 3 Power reduction plan calls for removal of 88 obsolete trailersThe trailers on Kwajalein are old and energy inef cient. The power reduction plan calls for the removal of 88 trailers. (File photo)Hourglass reportsAn article in the Sept. 1 Hourglass “Plan reduces energy use,” described a series of power reduction initiatives that will be implemented by U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll in order to help reduce the cost of operations on Kwajalein. The rst initiative on the list calls for a plan to reduce the number of trailers by 88 during the coming scal year. Of that number, many are already vacant, according to Fred McNickle, Kwajalein Range Services Public Works manager. “This initiative has a two-fold objective. It eliminates dozens of obsolete and energy-inef cient trailer units and it better utilizes the existing bachelor quarters spaces, many of which are currently vacant,” he said. In order to implement this initiative, the Public Works Logistics Housing Of ce has developed a plan for managing the necessary changes taking place. “The rst group of individuals who will be relocated into BQ spaces will be those unaccompanied personnel who share a trailer. Individual notices will be provided by LHO of the pending reassignment,” McNickle said. The notices will be mailed to the trailer occupants next week. “The relocation will be considered an involuntary move, so it will be done at no cost to the individuals involved. Once a BQ room assignment has been made, individuals will be allotted a reasonable amount of time to prepare for and to accomplish the relocation. KRS Logistics will provide packing materials and assist with the movement of the packed goods to the BQ space.” Some people who move into BQs will have the option of living in newly-modi ed quarters. “In a few cases, there are married couples living in trailers in the situation where each holds an unaccompanied assignment,” he said. “To accommodate these couples, USAKA has approved the modi cation of BQ spaces in which two adjacent rooms will be joined to form a suite. These couples will be relocated based upon the schedule for completion of the suites.”The remaining individuals living in trailers will be relocated into other housing at some later time based upon their housing category. “It is the goal of USAKA to eventually eliminate all housing trailers from the island,” McNickle said.“KRS Public Works is committed to providing all reasonable support in order to make these relocations as easy as possible on the affected individuals. They appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation as they work to implement this initiative,” he said. Information on this and other power-reduction programs will be posted in The Hourglass as information becomes available. By Jeff HallidayKwajalein Range Services public affairs of cerOn Sept. 20 Kwajalein Range Services held its semiannual Members Committee meeting on Kwajalein. The Members Committee functions like a corporate board of directors, and is made up of senior managers from Bechtel, Lockheed Martin and Chugach. The members do not participate in the day-to-day management of KRS, but they give the company general direction, and the advice of senior executives with a great deal of experience. The Members Committee tries to conduct at least one of its meetings on Kwajalein every year because it’s important for the committee members to be aware of conditions here. As Kwaj residents know, you can’t imagine this place fully without coming here. Committee members toured both Kwajalein and Roi and met with the people who do the actual work on the Atoll. The Committee heard reports from KRS managers in virtually all major areas. Because the September meeting was held just before the beginning of the new scal year, a major focus of the discussion was how to accomplish U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll’s goals within the budget. Besides hearing from KRS leadership Committee, members had meetings with Col. Stevenson Reed, USAKA commander, and Lt. Col. Harold Buhl, Reagan Test Site commander, to get their perspectives.Senior managers of Bechtel, Lockheed-Martin, Chugach tour Kwajalein, discuss transition

There are factors to consider that don’t affect the game when played in a controlled area. There are the wind, the sun and the court conditions, to name a few. And then if you throw in the added twist of having to serve backwards, it takes the game to a new dimension. The Kwajalympics team building day, held at Emon Beach on Kwajalein and near the pool on Roi-Namur, was lled with interesting twists to take the competitive edge out of traditional sporting events. Volleyball was one of 14 contests held Sept. 22 at the one-day event. Kwajalympics had been an employee-only, weeklong sporting and fun, but highly competitive, activity. This year things changed. Col. Stevenson Reed, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll commander, decided he wanted to include all of the USAKA community in what he described as an organization day. “At the end of the day you will have seen great competition and its great fun and a chance to get to know someone who is new,” Reed said in the opening ceremony.

You need to re ect on what you did during the year, take the opportunity to meet other people and likewise, enjoy the festivities,” he added. “And so, if you are wearing black, you are on my team, if you’re wearing red, you’re on my team, if you’re wearing white, purple, yellow, blue or orange, you’re on my team.” Be safe, drink water, we know how hot it can get. Wear your sunscreen so that when we look back on this organization day, we can say, it was a good time,” Reed said. “Thanks for allowing me to be here with you.” The organizations on the island were divided into seven teams: Community, representing Kwajalein Range Services Community Services; Functional, with representatives from functional areas not listed in another department such as admin and KRS headquarters section; Logistics, with contestants from Chugach; USAKA/RTS/MIT-LL; Contractors, representing people who work for other companies such as Wheco, San Juan Construction and Kwajalein Police Department, Mission with representatives from KRS Mission Ops departments and Schools. This was the rst year that the schools were represented by a team. The 14-event competition began at 8 a.m. and continued throughout the day. Dining Services sold a barbecue chicken lunch, members of the Kwajalein Fire Department were on hand to assist if there was an emergency and community members were encouraged to participate at their own levels. This was a paid work day for employees. They had the option of being at work or at the beach. Similar activities were held on Roi-Namur throughout the day. The nal event of the day on Kwajalein was a pieeating contest. Minimally one representative from each department sat down at a table in front of the crowd and tried to out-consume one another. Their targets: cherry pies. They were required to eat as much as possible without using their hands. Justin DeCoster, from the Schools, ate more than the others and was declared best eater. Simone Smead, chairperson for the event and the day’s emcee, announced the results of the day: “In their inaugural Kwajalympics they take it all. How are we going to live it down? We’re going to have to hear about this all year long,” she said, laughing while congratulating the cheering young people from the School’s team. Although the competition continued throughout the day, the Schools only participated in the afternoon, but racked up enough points to take the trophy…a hand-painted coconut. Smead described the young people’s involvement, “It brought a whole, new energy to the afternoon.” The Schools totaled 23 points for rst; in second was Mission with 14 points; followed by Community with 13; next was a tie between Functional and Logistics with ten each; with USAKA/RTS/MIT-LL in sixth with nine and the Contractors in seventh with ve. Several bikes were donated by KRS and were given away before the crowds dispersed.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 29, 2007 9 Taking CareExcessive alcohol consumption third leading cause of death for people in United StatesBy Lindsey Frobeniuspharmacy externAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, excessive alcohol use is the third leading lifestyle-related cause of death for people in the U.S. More than half of the adult population in the United States drank alcohol in the past 30 days. Ten percent of these people drank heavily (drinking that averages more than two drinks daily for men or more than one drink daily for women), while thirty percent binge drank (drinking more than four drinks during a single occasion for men or more than three drinks per occasion for women). It is important to note most people who binge drink are not alcoholics who are physically or psychologically dependent on alcohol. Even though total consumption is the same, there is increasing evidence that consuming large amounts of alcohol over a relatively short period of time is likely to be far worse for your health than dividing the same amount of alcohol out over a whole week. Since the body sees alcohol as a poison, having high concentrations over short periods could possibly be worse than having lower levels more often. While some studies have shown that low to moderate alcohol consumption can be bene cial for certain conditions such as heart disease, abuse of alcohol can lead to many health problems, such as: Liver diseases including: Alcoholic hepatitis — an inflammation of the liver which can progress to cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver which prevents it from functioning properly. This often leads to complete liver failure, and it is among the 15th leading causes of death in the United States.Cancer In general, the risk of cancer increases with increasing amounts of alcohol. Types of cancer include liver, mouth, throat, prostate and breast. Heart disease, stroke Heavy drinking is associated with abnormal blood clotting factors, high blood pressure, increased risk for stroke and heart attack, irregular heartbeats and an enlarged heart. Reproductive system dysfunction In men, excessive alcohol can interfere with testicular function, resulting in impotence, infertility, and reduction of male secondary sex characteristics such as facial and chest hair. In women, excessive consumption may disrupt menstrual cycling and increase the risk of infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth and premature deliver. Memory loss Excessive drinking may cause shrinkage of the brain and memory loss. Other Alcohol can lead to psychiatric problems, gastrointestinal problems, poor control of diabetes, and injuries both intentional and unintentional.So, next time you head out for some celebrating, keep in mind your health can be damaged by alcohol. It is recommended that alcohol intake be limited to no more than two drinks daily in men and one drink daily in women to prevent harmful effects. For more information on the health effects of alcohol, visit www.cdc.gov/alcohol or talk to your healthcare provider. Excessive drinking is extremely hazardous to health and can even cause death.

Gates said Thursday he’s concerned that NATO has lagged behind in ful lling its commitments there. The biggest shortfall is NATO’s unful lled requirement for 3,200 trainers, principally to train Afghan police, Gates told Pentagon reporters “We have been very direct with a number of the NATO allies about the need to meet the commitments that they made at Riga,” Gates said, referring to the NATO summit in Latvia in late November. Gates said he’s extended the U.S. commitment in Afghanistan in several cases “to give NATO a few more months to nd replacements,” but added that now he is ready to hold the line. “I have made pretty clear that I will be loathe to make further extensions where somebody else is not ful lling the requirement,” he said. The issue is expected to be a major topic of discussion during the upcoming informal defense minister’s meeting slated for Oct. 24 and 25 in Noordwijk, Netherlands. The secretary said he has asked for “a review of the commitments the member states have made for Afghanistan and those instances in which they have fallen short,” Gates said. “So it is a matter that we take very seriously. We have been talking directly to a number of our allies. “Most European governments get it,” Gates added. “They understand how important Afghanistan is, and they are actually eager to try and ful ll the commitments they have made.”

The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 29, 2007 11BEAUTY from Page 2 U.S. forces ready for any contingency ugly, but...” What’s worse is we think we are being modest in this thinking when it really manifests itself in so many negative ways that it’s really low self esteem. Think about it. When you constantly see your own faults and see others as better than you in whatever way, you start making unnecessary comparisons and start to see those ‘better‘ ones as the enemy and once you start seeing someone as the enemy, before long you start treating them as the enemy. It starts in high school with the “she thinks she’s cute” comments, and pretty soon you just start making up reasons why this other person isn’t so pretty just to make yourself feel better about the faults you actually see in yourself. You’ve made an enemy out of someone who never really did anything to you, and haven’t dealt with the real enemy you have, yourself.When it comes to true beauty, modesty is very different than low self-esteem. Modesty in dress makes you want to dress like a lady. Low self esteem in dress makes you dress a certain way to get attention. Modesty has a genuine smile that wants to spread the joy that’s inside. Low self esteem has a smile that hides the sadness inside. Modesty has a good heart. Low self esteem has a broken one.There’s a biblical scripture that describes this so well in one simple sentence. Proverbs 11:22 says beauty in a woman without good judgment is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout. So in regards to the pretty vs. mediocre argument, pretty is as pretty does, and so is mediocre. How you really feel about yourself is how you will end up looking to yourself and others. Although we can still doo wop to the Temptations version, I think a more correct statement is true beauty’s a whole lot more than skin deep, yeah, yeah, yeah. The commitment of ground forces in Iraq and Afghanistan is heavy, but the U.S. military has ample forces to respond to any other contingency that may arise, the general in charge of planning for the Joint Chiefs of Staff said. About 490,000 military members are forward-deployed around the world, with 234,000 in Southwest and Central Asia, about 139,000 in the Paci c, about 96,000 in the European theater, and a little more than 4,000 in Latin and Central America and the Caribbean, Army Maj. Gen. Richard Sherlock, director of operational planning for the Joint Staff, told reporters at the Pentagon. While that may seem like a big number, it includes units that are stationed in Korea, Germany, Japan and other places, which are technically forward-deployed but are available for combat deployments, he said. “If need be, the American armed forces will respond to whatever requirements are laid on it by the secretary of defense and the president,” Sherlock said. “If you have forces that are available, again, whether they’re in the U.S., whether they may have just redeployed, or whether they’re forward-stationed, they may be available, depending on what theoretical contingency would occur.” In Iraq, U.S. forces are focused on building the efforts of the Iraqi security forces, Sherlock said. Last week, 744 new police of cers from Abu Ghraib graduated, and this week, 800 more will graduate. During the next six months, 12,000 Iraqi security personnel will be trained, he said. “While it will take some time to season those personnel, it again is a clear indication of the dedication of the Iraqi people to the security of their nation,” Sherlock said. As the U.S. military is acting on troop-level decisions the president made based on recommendations from commanders on the ground, the Army is working to increase time at home between deployments for soldiers, Sherlock said. The ideal situation would be to give soldiers 12 months at home for every 12 months they spend de-By Sgt. Sara Wood, USAAmerican Forces Press Service ployed, but moving to that system will depend on conditions in Iraq and the need for forces, he said. Sherlock also emphasized that the movement of troops from Iraq will depend on conditions there. The president announced that a Marine unit, a brigade and two battalions will leave Iraq before the end of the year. The Marine unit is in the process of redeploying, but decisions about the battalions have not been made yet, Sherlock said. “You have to make sure what you don’t do is give up gains that you’ve made in an area,” he said.

The old interface with Continental Airlines to authorize, manage and pay for annual leave airline tickets was labor intensive and created re-work when reservations changed. In addition KRS Travel was paying for tickets at higher than base prices when annual leave is not planned far enough in advance. The newly designed process eliminated these issues and allowed employees more exibility; saving $65,000 per year in both hard and soft savings. The number one focus of Six Sigma is meeting the customerÂ’s needs, and the annual leave process is now more simplistic and exible for the KRS employees.Adult Recreation Center activity nights start at 7 p.m. All residents 19 and older are welcome. Must have identi cation .Sunrise Bakery and retail food facilities will sell frozen hamburger and hot dog buns and wheat and white breads beginning Wednesday. This will replace the current items prepared by Sunrise Bakery. Fresh-baked specialty breads, cakes, donuts and pastries will still be available at Sunrise Bakery. It is recommended that breads be kept refrigerated to retain freshness. Sunday: dictionary super scrabble Monday: spades Tuesday: hearts Wednesday: movie Thursday: chess
