4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 13, 2013 D rop E verything A nd R eadReading campaign encourages kids to read 30 minutes a day Video games, TV remotes, jump rope, skateboard, other books and movies were just a few things the third graders at the D.E.A.R. celebration said they would drop to pick up a good book. The D.E.A.R. campaign encourages everyone to drop what they are doing and read for 30 minutes every day. Patrons who visited the Grace Sherwood Library on Wednesday created a card inviting someone to read with them. Many kids decorated their cards with illustrations they imagined from their favorite stories, while others wrote D.E.A.R. poems. Talia Provolt said she enjoys reading because it lets her mind picture things. Quincy Breen said, “It improves my vocabulary and teaches me new words.” Others just said reading is fun, relaxing, exciting and an adventure. It isn’t every day that people get to wear their pajamas to the library, but for this party, PJs were the formal wear. Take time to read for 30 minutes every day. Spring Break gave the Tiger Cub Scouts an opportunity to get out and complete several important electives. They know it’s important to help the injured, so they decided to help Cher Kirk with some yard work, since she broke her toe. Also, during Spring Break, they learned to count money by buying snacks at the Shoppette. Later that week, they visited the K9 unit, where SSgt. Wade Ballard introduced them to Dino and Karla, Kwajalein’s resident explosive-sniffers. Their final stop was the police station, where Lt. Dirk Roesler gave them a tour of the detention cell and taught them about physical training. Top left: The Scouts are scared straight in the D-cell at Kwajalein Police Department.

5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 13, 2013 By Dr. Nancy Batts Kwajalein HospitalAlcohol exacts a high cost on work organizations. “Drinking among U.S. workers can threaten public safety, impair job performance and result in costly medical, social and other problems affecting employees and employers alike. Productivity losses attributed to alcohol were estimated at $119 billion for 1995,” according to “The Economic Costs of Alcohol and Drug Abuse in the United States ,” National Institute on Drug Abuse More recent statistics from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism estimate the cost to be $276 billion when lost productivity, enforcement costs, health care and welfare costs are all factored in. The workplace focus is on four major issues: premature death and fatalities, injuries and accidents, absenteeism and extra sick leave, and loss of production. Additional problem areas resulting from alcohol can include tardiness, sleeping on the job, theft, poor decision-making, loss of ef ciency, lower morale of coworkers, increased trouble with workers and supervisors or tasks, increased turnover and training new employees, and disciplinary procedures. One fth of workers and managers across a wide range of industries and company sizes report that drinking by a coworker, on or off the job, jeopardized productivity and safety. Up to 40 percent of industrial fatalities and 47 percent of injuries in the workplace are linked to alcohol consumption and alcoholism. The behaviors most associated with these statistics were drinking before or during working hours, or heavy drinking the night before leading to hangovers. In the past year, 24 percent of workers reported drinking during the workday. This leads to poor judgment, irritability, loss of balance, poor reaction time which may increase possibility of workplace injuries to self or others, neglect of responsibilities, relationship problems, ghting with coworkers or supervisors, self destructive behaviors or legal troubles leading to increased absenteeism or increased turnovers. ALCOHOL L AWARENESS ALCOHOL ALCOHOL ES It is noted that it is not just those who drink heavily who cause problems, but also those who occasionally drink too much and those with family members living with alcoholism. Alcoholic’s family members use 10 times as much sick leave as families where alcohol is not a problem. Eighty percent of these family members report their ability to perform work is impaired as a result of living with an alcohol abuser. The toll on the family is signi cant in other ways as well. There is neglect of hygiene and irritability. Interaction with others is limited. Stress is increased for family members because there is less time devoted to hobbies and interests. There is also less time for family and friends. While it may be dif cult for the spouse to concentrate on work, the children have similar problems at school. There are increases in domestic violence and child abuse as a consequence of alcohol consumption. Consequently, divorce increases. So which industries were at highest risk? Food service, construction, mining/drilling, excavation, installation, and maintenance and repair were noted to have the highest rate of alcoholism according to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. It has been shown that Employee Assistance Programs through the workplace have been helpful with alcohol problems. If you feel that you or a friend has a problem with alcohol, contact the EAP at Kwajalein Hospital.By Dr. Hillary Berry Kwajalein Dental ClinicAn increase in emergency appointments at the dental of ce for facial injuries is an indicator that softball season has begun. While collision and contact sports, such as boxing, have inherent injury risks, dental injuries are also prevalent in non-contact activities such as softball. On Kwajalein, the leading cause for facial trauma is softball-related injuries. “Soft” ball is relative. Anything moving at 30+ mph is going to leave a dent. In the case of the face, a swollen lip and displaced teeth are the leading result of a kiss with a yellow leatherclad projectile. Surveillance studies of mouthguard users and nonusers have consistently shown that mouthguards offer signi cant protection against sports-related injuries to the teeth and soft tissues. Mouthguards provide a resilient, protective surface to distribute and dissipate forces on impact, thereby minimizing the severity of traumatic injury to the hard or soft tissues. The Kwajalein Dental Clinic can fabricate a custom athletic mouthguard, saving many teeth and visits to the ER. Cheaper than an emergency room visit, mouthguards run $150 and can be made within a week. It only takes 30 minutes to t a mouthguard. Call the Kwajalein Dental Clinic for information at 52165.

6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, April 13, 2013 By Molly Premo Media Services InternOn Sunday, the 13th Annual Spring Break Music Fest was held at Emon Beach from 1-11 p.m. Everyone in the community was welcome to come, and despite the rain, the music and activities drew in a crowd. Dan Hopkins, on his guitar, started the music part of the festivities, followed by the youngest performers, Jenna Gray and Alana Leines who sang “I Knew You Were Trouble” by Taylor Swift. Annie Helper, and Angelo and Auguston Lelet kept the music moving with songs like “Home” by Phillip Phillips, and “That’s What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction Karen Brady’s Tiny Dancers changed the personality of the entertainment by performing a dance to “Black Bird.” People could also enjoy themselves by taking a shot at the dunk tank to try and take down volunteers like Col. Shannon Boehm or Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau. Additionally, a helicopter was landed in the high school eld for people to tour. Younger kids spent their time on the slip and slide and new bounce house. Once the sun came out, people could cool down by jumping in the water or purchasing a snow cone and baked goods sold by Kwajalein Swim Team. Cheesesteak sandwiches, mozzarella sticks, cotton candy and more goodies could be purchased from the Mobile Kitchen that was set up in the big pavilion. Across from the bake sale, the Kwajalein Yacht Club was selling shirts and other merchandise. Like every year, there was a Chili Cook-off, BBQ Cook-off and Homebrew Tasting. This year, the tasting was all free, but, donations were requested to help David Helm, former Kwaj resident, pay for his medical Seven-person band, PBR performed various types of music at the outdoor music festival on Sunday. The Chili Cook-off tent had 20 participants and over 100 people judge. They raised $500 from donations. BBQ Cook-off contestants got creative this year, like Jerry Leverett’s turtle made from meatloaf, hotdogs and bacon.

The Beer Garden had six brewers contending and made 12 varieties of beer as well as one wine. Nonalcoholic choices were available because Keith Peacock brought his homemade root beer and cream soda. Coming in rst for the peopleÂ’s choice was the Serendipity Citra Pale made by Rene and Susannah Prenoveau, followed by Friar Brown Ale brewed by Jim Hall, and Recompoveau, again made by the Prenoveaus, came in third. The beer garden raised $1,500. The Kwajalein Yacht Club-sponsored Chili Cook-off had 20 contestants competing in the three categories of traditional, hottest and most original. The tent manager, Ciara Swanby, helped a little over 100 people come through the tent and judge. The rst place winners for each category were Samantha Tippetts for original, Jim Bramblett for hottest, Jim Severson for traditional, and Jon Mitchell for peopleÂ’s choice award. The total money made by the chili tent was $500. The BBQ Cook-off had a record number of contestants with 13, and made $750. Even through Surfway was out of pork butts, the participants became creative, like Jerry Leverett, who made turtles out of meatloaf, hotdogs and bacon. There was a tie between Rob Medrano and Jeremy Gideon for the overall winner and the beef division. The pork divisionÂ’s winner was Henry McElreath, the poultry division was taken by Ben Souther and Tommy Ryon, and the rib division was won by Jeff Sudderth. People continued on with the day with games such as beach volleyball or throwing a football. At the end of the night, the rain started to pick up again and delayed the live music for a little bit. Radar Love stuck through it to the end and nished the evening with their rock performance. Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau splahes into the dunk tank for charity at Spring Break Music Fest on Sunday. The band, Flashback, performs at Spring Break Music Festival.
