Work to consolidate Wiesbaden’s Hainerberg shopping and housing areas continues as current construction projects progress throughout this year and a few new projects are getting ready to break ground this spring. The following is an update on several projects that will have impacts in the Hainerberg Community.

Wiesbaden Middle School

The demolition of older family housing units is currently taking place at the site of the new Wiesbaden Middle School located between Mississippistrasse and Texasstrasse. Site isolation and construction will begin shortly thereafter, which will have immediate impacts on parking and traffic patterns on Hainerberg. “It’s going to be very busy over at Hainerberg. Please be cautious during this period as some road changes will occur,” said Col. Mary Martin, U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden commander, during a construction update at the Community Information Exchange, at the Community Activities Center, Jan. 26. “A fair number of parking spots along Texasstrasse will be absorbed into the Middle School construction site,” said Edwin Johnson, director of USAG Wiesbaden Directorate of Public Works. To mitigate parking concerns, an alternate surface parking lot will be built, simultaneously, across from the Wiesbaden Entertainment Center on Mississippistrasse, and will include a pedestrian path connecting to the current school. As part of the middle school project, a construction vehicle access road will be created from B455, across Mississippistrasse, straight into the site to isolate construction traffic and activity from the community. Residents can expect to see additional perimeter fencing as the site is secured. “The ‘bubble’ construction technique is the least disruptive to Hainerberg’s access control point, safe for our residential communities and an efficient way to keep work on the middle See ‘Construction’ on page 6

Library hosts dinosaur-themed evening Story and photos by Emily Jennings

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden children had an evening of dinosaursized fun recently during an event at the Wiesbaden Library Jan. 28. Participants listened to stories about dinosaurs, went on a scavenger hunt, had a chance to get temporary tattoos and colored on a giant tyrannosaurus rex coloring sheet. Children spoke up about their dinosaur knowledge during storytime, standing up and raising their hands and reciting names of dinosaurs and even comparing the size of a tyrannosaurus rex’s teeth to bananas. See ‘Dino’ on page 3

Children listen to a dinosaur story at the Wiesbaden Library’s Night at the Museum event Jan. 28. Children got the chance to take part in a host of dinosaur-related activities, including coloring, a scavenger hunt and others.

Continued from page 1

“Momma! This is called a Zombie-a-saurus,” said 3-yearold Thomas as he worked on the scavenger hunt with his 6-year-old sister Olivia. The library holds programs once a month, said Wiesbaden Library Supervisory Librarian JoAnn Ogreenc. They are not always geared just toward kids, but, “the majority of them tend to be family-oriented,” she said. “In November we had a puppet show…in December we had ‘Mr. And Mrs. Claus’…and next month is ‘The Three Billy Goats Fluff,’” she said. “It was fun,” said Devon Davis, who was there with her two children. She said they enjoyed the event and plan to attend next month’s program as well. “I didn’t know about it before tonight, but yes, absolutely.”

RoboWarriors gear up for 2016 season By Erin Gavle

Special to the Herald Union

With 80s music blaring in the background, parents milling about and a five table spread of food, one might have confused the RoboWarriors’ Season Kickoff event on January 9th for an end of season sports banquet. In fact, this was only the beginning. For the nearly 40 student programmers and engineers that make up the RoboWarriors Club, this is the beginning of the “time that we go kinda crazy,” according to RoboWarriors advisor, Frank Pendzich. A video created by First Robotics, one of the organizations that sponsors this competition, was shown to all participating schools around the world, and ended with the reveal of the field the robot would have to maneuver around, and the objectives it would have to accomplish. This year, “The Game,” as First refers to it, involves throwing balls into a castle, storming enemy defenses and “capturing” the castle by having the robot pull itself up to the top. Alexis Bennett, RoboWarriors treasurer, echoed the club’s excitement for this year’s mission. “I started flipping out. I thought it was the really coolest thing,” he said. “[We] all thought it was [going to be] jousting for some reason, and now it’s [everything] we all thought of. [It’s] everything we’ve ever wanted when we saw the teaser video, we were all super hype about it.” Time is of the essence for these engineers. This event marks the beginning of the six weeks known as “build season,” which is the only time these Warriors have to construct their robot for competition. According to Bennett, this is when living in Germany becomes a challenge. “It’s harder for us when it comes to build season because we’re overseas. We have to get [our robot] done for a certain day to ship it, and then we have a weight requirement and a height requirement. [We’re] unlike students in the States, who get as much time [as they want] and can do whatever they want with [it.]” This is also the time for those interested in travelling to the competition to step up and participate. There is no seniority system in RoboWarriors, so the students who clock the most hours get to go on the trips. Bennett explains, “You can’t just join the club and expect to go on the trips. It’s who puts in the work and who puts in the motivation that gets to go on the trips.” Dell McMullen, Director of Department of Defense Education Activity

Wiesbaden High School RoboWarriors team members scribble ideas after watching the introduction video for the 2016 robotics season. Students will build a fully functional robot designed to meet this year’s challenges. — Europe, attended the kickoff event, and shared her thoughts on the no seniority rule. “I’m so glad that [Mr.] Pendzich does that because we all have [positive] attributes, [but] at the end of the day, it comes down to how hard we work, how much we are willing to contribute and how much we are willing to be part of a team [that works] toward the greater good,” she said. “I’m delighted that he is really fostering that, and that he’s giving those individuals the chance to go forward.” After receiving their challenge, the RoboWarriors immediately launched into their brainstorming phase. A pack of students rushed to a corner of the multi purpose room to start drafting and drawing on the giant sticky notes the club officers had covered the walls with. At the same time, Pendzich briefed the parents on just how intense the season was going to get. “Please know that this is going to be very taxing on your students. I don’t want the rest of their studies to suffer because of their

focus on this event. They have to learn how to manage the amount of time in their regular life, the regular work they have to do, and still participate in First.” Although it is a significant time commitment, McMullen explains why she supports having Robotics clubs in DoDEA schools. “I think it’s extremely important [in our schools] to give our students as many opportunities as possible to go into different areas where they’ll have a chance. And in order to do that they’ll need to have sharp problem solving skills, they’ll need to be creative, they’ll need to work together as a team to solve these problems — problems that we don’t even know what they’re going to look like. That’s why I’m so supportive of RoboWarriors.” (Editor’s note: this is the first article in a series following the Wiesbaden High School RoboWarriors as they build and compete in their 2016 robotics competitions.

News and features CDC travel health notice: Zika virus Design announced

Release by Regional Health Command Europe In response to reports in Brazil of microcephaly (a birth defect where a baby’s head is smaller than expected) and other poor pregnancy outcomes in babies of mothers who were infected with the Zika virus while pregnant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a travel alert for people traveling to regions and certain countries where Zika virus transmission is ongoing. The notice is an Alert Level 2 that calls for travelers to follow enhanced precautions or recommended preventive measures for these destinations. While some travel related cases of Zika virus infection have been reported in Europe, no cases have originated here. The virus can only be spread by being bitten by an infected mosquito and the type of mosquito that can spread the disease is not found in Europe. The Zika virus is spread to people through mosquito bites. The most common symptoms of Zika virus disease are fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis (red eyes). The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. Severe disease requiring hospitalization is uncommon. No locally transmitted Zika cases have been reported in the continental United States, but cases have been reported in returning travelers. Locally transmitted Zika virus has been reported in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. The number of Zika cases among travelers visiting or returning to the United States will likely increase. Who is at risk of being infected? Anyone who is living in or traveling to an area where Zika virus

is found who has not already been infected with Zika virus, including pregnant women. Until more is known and out of an abundance of caution, the CDC recommends special precautions for pregnant women and women trying to become pregnant: • Pregnant women in any trimester should consider postponing travel to the areas where Zika virus transmission is ongoing. Pregnant women who do travel to one of these areas should talk to their doctor or other healthcare provider first and strictly follow steps to avoid mosquito bites during the trip. • Women trying to become pregnant should consult with their healthcare provider before traveling to these areas and strictly follow steps to prevent mosquito bites during the trip. For more information on the Zika virus, visit the CDC web site at Countries and territories with active Zika virus transmission include: AMERICAS Barbados • Bolivia • Brazil • Colombia • Ecuador • El Salvador • French Guiana • Guadeloupe • Guatemala • Guyana • Haiti • Honduras • Martinique • Mexico • Panama • Paraguay • Puerto Rico • Saint Martin • Suriname • Venezuela; PACIFIC ISLANDS • Samoa; AFRICA • Cape Verde Information for Travelers – Please visit the CDC’s Travelers Health website to see if the country you plan to visit has any travel health notices: Mosquito bite prevention for travelers can be found at: fs_mosquito_bite_prevention_travelers.pdf.

for WWI memorial By Lisa Ferdinando

Department of Defense News

The service and sacrifice of those who served in World War I a century ago finally will be honored in a memorial in the nation’s capital, said Edwin Fountain, the commission’s vice chairman. Fountain, the grandson of two World War I veterans, announced the winning design concept at the National Press Club here. The winning concept is “The Weight of Sacrifice” by 25-year-old Joe Weishaar, a yet-to-be licensed architect, and veteran sculptor Sabin Howard. The design met the challenges of creating a concept for such an important memorial, Fountain said. Those challenges, he explained, included finding an appropriate way to honor the magnitude of the service and sacrifice of the nearly 5 million Americans who served and the more than 116,000 who died. The design concept had to work into the surrounding landscape, Fountain said. It had to complement the iconic architecture and design of historic Washington, and serve as a city park. The memorial will be located in Pershing Park, near the White House. While the National Mall, where other war memorials are located, would be the preferred location, a law prohibits new construction on that expanse, Fountain said. Besides serving as a permanent tribute to the service members, the memorial is meant to educate Americans and inspire them to learn more about the largely overlooked war that has profound influence to this day, Fountain said. The winning concept will go through an extensive design review from a number of agencies, including the Commission of Fine Arts, the National Capital Planning Commission, and the National Park Service, Fountain said.

Wiesbaden High School

Work is progressing on the High School with the new $52 million facility expected to welcome grades 9-12 at the start of the 2017 school year. Both the Wiesbaden High School and Middle School projects are Department of Defense Education Activity initiatives under the 21st Century School Design concept being implemented Army wide.

Hainerberg Access Control Point

Work has begun on the new Hainerberg Access Control Point, or ACP, located adjacent to the Exchange shopping facilities. The ACP will provide main access to Hainerberg from the B455, through Washingtonstrasse. A traffic light and additional turn lanes will be added at the intersection of B455 and Washingtonstrasse. The new ACP is expected to reduce traffic through the housing areas of Hainerberg and provide direct access to B455 leading to Clay Kaserne, Johnson said. Once complete, the current ACP at New York Strasse will close, along with the Shoppette Gate, leaving one ID check to enter Hainerberg facilities instead of two. “The new ACP will really allow us to take advantage of the facilities in the former PX area,” said Johnson. There are plans to use those facilities in the future and make them part of the community again he added.

Hainerberg and Aukamm Housing

There are a variety of repairs and upgrades taking place in a majority of the housing on Hainerberg and Aukamm. Improvements include repairing and painting exterior basement staircases, waterproofing foundations, and the installation of energy-efficient LED lighting. “The waterproofing project involves trenching around foundations and will be the most noticeable to residents; however, units will always be safely accessible,” said Johnson. DPW will contact families on an individual basis prior to conducting any work at their building. These housing upgrades will continue through August 2016.

Pedestrian Lighting

An additional community improvement project currently underway is the installation of 300, pedestrian-level lights on walking paths in the Crestview and Aukamm housing areas. “The bollard lights will enhance safety and increase the walkability of these communities at night,” added Johnson.

Repairs to exterior basement staircases are underway at several Hainerberg Housing units and includes waterproofing foundations.

News and features Hesse hosts Commemoration for the Victims of National Socialism By Pascal Schnitzler

Press Spokesman for the Hessian State Parliament

The annual commemoration event for the victims of the Nazi regime (national socialism), hosted jointly by the Hessian State Parliament, Hessian State Government, Hessian State Welfare Association, Hessian Cities and Municipalities Association, as well as the Hessian County Association was held Jan. 26 at the Hessian Landtag building. This year’s commemoration event ran under the heading of “ghetto.” The commemoration dates back to a recommendation made in 1996 by the former German Federal President Roman Herzog, who suggested to have an annual event on Jan. 27 (editor’s note: the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp) dedicated to the victims of national socialism. In 2005, this day was named the International Holocaust Remembrance Day by the United Nations. The President of the Hessian State Parliament Norbert Kartmann welcomed the guests to the commemoration ceremony, which took place for the first time in 2002 at the Hessian Landtag. “For 20 years we have been commemorating the victims of national socialism on that day. This memorial event has become the Hessian Landtag’s and the Hessian State’s obligation. Hence it was also important to hold this event together with our towns and cities. It also is the whole country’s obligation to remember the European victims of national socialism; the Jewish citizens of the villages and cities that were friends and neighbors,” said Kartmann.

“Even seven decades after the end of the Nazi regime, nothing has been forgotten. History does not repeat itself, but one should know of it. Remembering various events of the persecution and murder of European Jews, Sinti and Roma, Christians, people with different political views, always form the thematic background of what we are talking about and what we are documenting. “ The history of the Jewish ghetto exemplifies human suffering under national socialism. The Warsaw Ghetto began in 1940 and ended in May 1943, after the suppression of the uprising in the Warsaw ghetto by the Nazi regime. The ghetto of Vilna began at the end of August 1941. In January 1942, a resistance group was formed in the ghetto, and in September 1943 it was evacuated by the Nazis and the Jewish population was deported. The ceremony was framed with poetry and music recitals, originating in those two ghettos. “We are obligated to keep this Memorial Day and many other dates of the past century in our memory. This culture of remembrance, which has developed over the decades of democratic Germany, is indispensable for our country. And this memory requires the commitment of many people in our society,” said the president of the parliament.

in the civilian sector,” Lowrie said. Dailey gave insight into an initiative that will provide Soldiers with more civilian accreditation based on their military training. Although a system exists in which the American Council on Education awards college credit for military experience, Dailey explained that the new initiative would allow the Army to award college credits based on Soldiers’ experience level, eventually awarding a master’s degree upon graduating the U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy. The initiative also aims at providing Soldiers, who choose to leave the Army, a civilian-equivalent certification so they may have an easier time finding similar work outside the military. Dailey said Soldiers should expect to see this initiative take shape in the near future. After a few popular overhauls already implemented, including the Army’s tattoo policy and the integration of black socks, the future looks favorable for junior Soldiers. “His mindset is listening to the Soldiers and hearing what we want and what needs to happen,” Fry said. “You hear a lot of NCOs talk about the new Army in a negative way but his focus is on the new Army and making the Army better and that’s what makes him different.” “I’m extremely proud that I joined — knowing that I have great leadership at the top,” Lowrie said. “Before, I thought of the SMA basically as a figurehead, but now I see he really is hands on, wanting our questions and going in depth and giving us a genuine answer lets me know that he’s not just a figurehead, he’s actually doing.”

Showcasing “The End of a Culture,” Museum Wiesbaden will feature a Hunters and Gatherers exhibit, including artifacts from the South African Kalahari, the Australian Outback and the Amazon Rainforest, using large-scale dioramas in three exhibition rooms. Most of the pieces were brought back by a Wiesbaden local, Werner Hammer, after his many expeditions to the various countries home to early hunters and gatherers. The exhibition started September 2015 and will end May 22. Ticket prices are 7 euro for temporary exhibits and 4

euro for permanent exhibits. The museum is located across from the former Rhein Main Halle, at Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 2, 65185 Wiesbaden, and is closed on Mondays, open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

If you visit, plan on spending the day walking through gardens, seeing animals and touring beautiful, historic buildings. As a side note, Germany has many “Freiland” museums like Hessen Park, and you’re likely to find one relatively nearby no matter where you’re stationed or visiting. As a rule, they’re always well done and worth the time to visit — especially if you have kids. There is plenty of room for children to run around and explore without getting into too much trouble.

New Kaiserslautern District superintendent selected Department of Defense Education Activity Europe Public Affairs Dr. Dell McMullen, Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Europe Director, has named Dr. Liz Dunham as the DoDEA Kaiserslautern District Superintendent. She will maintain the oversight of the Bavaria District until it closes in July 2016 at which point the schools and students previously aligned to the Bavaria and Kaiserslautern Districts will become a newly established district, DoDEA Europe East. The selection was made through a competitive process. Dr. Dunham is a career educator with extensive teaching and administrative experience. She joined DoDEA nearly 30 years ago as a staff developer and went on to hold a number of positions of increasing responsibility before being selected as the superintendent of the DoDEA Europe Bavaria District in November 2012. Dr. Dunham will assume re-

sponsibility for the Kaiserslautern District immediately, but effective July 11, 2016, she will be the Superintendent for the newly-organized DoDEA Europe East District. The DoDEA Europe East District is a newly-established district under the Restructuring for Student Achievement (RSA) priority which has a goal of enabling DoDEA to become a more effective and efficient school system by implementing the best practices of U.S. state and local education agencies. In announcing the selection, Dr. McMullen cited Dr. Dunham’s extensive experience and leadership in DoDEA’s schools. “Dr. Dunham brings a wealth of experience to the DoDEA Europe Kaiserslautern District,” said Dr. McMullen. “She is an effective, caring leader and just the right person to lead the district through this transition period as we restructure to meet the needs of our students.” Dr. Dunham earned her B.A. from the University of Iowa. She com-

pleted her M.Ed. at Seattle Pacific University. In 1995, she earned her Ph.D. from the Cambridge Institute of Education in Cambridge, England. Dr. Dunham was the first American to earn the degree in this British program that was a joint venture between Cambridge University and the University of East Anglia. In reflecting on her selection, Dunham said she is honored to lead the current Bavaria and Kaiserslautern districts in the transition to the new DoDEA Europe East District. “By joining these two outstanding districts, we are bringing together educators whose combined talents will be of even greater benefit to the students, parents and communities we serve,” said Dr. Dunham. “I am committed to joining our district and school-level leaders in making the DoDEA Europe East District successful and vibrant, built on the best current practices and embracing the opportunities this transition provides us to learn, grow and improve together.”

DoD increases military maternity leave By Lisa Ferdinando

DoD News, Defense Media Activity

The Defense Department is increasing military maternity leave and instituting other changes in an effort to support military families, improve retention and strengthen the force of the future, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said today. Women across the joint force can now take 12 weeks of fully paid maternity leave, Carter told reporters at the Pentagon. The 12-week benefit is double the amount of time for paid maternity leave from when he became defense chief nearly a year ago, he noted. “This puts DOD in the top tier of institutions nationwide and will have significant influence on decision-making for our military family members,” Carter said. While being an incentive for attracting and retaining talent, the secretary said, the benefit also promotes the health and wellness of mothers through facilitating recovery and promoting feeding and bonding with the infant. “Our calculation is quite simple - we want our people to be able to balance two of the most solemn commitments they can ever make: a commitment to serve their country and a commitment to start and support a family,” he said. The announcement builds on previously announced initiatives on strengthening the force of the future, he said. Those previous reforms, he added, included opening all remaining combat occupations to women. The maternity leave decision applies to all service members in the active-duty component and to reserve-component

members serving in a full-time status or on definite active-duty recall or mobilization orders in excess of 12 months. The 12 weeks is less than the Navy’s decision last year to institute 18 weeks of fully-paid maternity leave, Carter noted. Sailors and Marines, who currently are pregnant or who become pregnant within 30 days of the enactment of the policy, can still take the full 18 weeks of paid leave, he said. To better support new mothers when they return to work, Carter said, he is requiring that a mothers’ room be made available in every DOD facility with more than 50 women. In addition, the Defense Department is seeking legislation to expand military paternity leave from the current 10-day leave benefit to a 14-day noncontinuous leave benefit, he said. The Defense Department subsidizes child care on military installations to ensure its affordability, Carter said. However, he added, military families often have to use outside providers because the hours at military child care facilities do not align with the work schedules of service members. With those challenges in mind, the Defense Department is increasing child care access to 14 hours of the day across the force, he said. “By providing our troops with child care they can rely on from before reveille until after taps, we provide one more reason for them to stay on board,” he said. “We show them that supporting a family and serving our country are by no means incompatible goals.” Carter noted that military members might want to stay at their current

When the needs of the force permit, the secretary said, commanders will be empowered to make reasonable accommodations to allow service members to remain, in exchange for an additional service obligation. The military asks its men and women to make incomparable sacrifices, Carter said, potentially putting them in situations where they could suffer injuries that would prevent them from having children in the future. Taking into account the tremendous sacrifices military members make, the

Defense Department will cover the cost of freezing sperm or eggs through a pilot program for active-duty service members, Carter said. The department also is looking at how it can provide reproductive technologies like IVF to a wider population, he said. Currently, the DOD provides reduced-cost treatment at six locations. These benefits provide the force greater confidence about their future, and they allow greater flexibility for starting a family, Carter said. They are one more tool, he said, to make the military a family-friendly employer that honors the desires of those who want to commit fully to their careers or serve courageously in combat while preserving their ability to have children in the future.

Application deadline nears for children scholarships By Mike Perron

Defense Commissary Agency

The time remaining to apply for one of the 2016 Scholarships for Military Children, each worth $2,000, is rapidly dwindling, as this year’s Feb. 12 deadline approaches. Applications, including the required essay, must be received at a military commissary by the close of business that day. They should be hand-delivered, but if that is not convenient, they can be sent to a commissary via the U.S. Postal Service or FEDEX/UPS. They cannot be faxed or emailed. At least one scholarship will be awarded at every commissary location with qualified applicants. This year’s essay question addresses childhood obesity and its effect on military recruitment: “Obesity is among the leading causes of military ineligibility among people 17 to 24, affecting nearly 30 percent of men and women in this age group. Specifically, how would you address this problem and what are your

proposed solutions? What would be the challenges with implementing your plan?” Essays must be 500 words or less, typewritten or computer-generated, double spaced, and no longer than two pages. Last year, 700 students were awarded scholarships from the 4,000 applicants, who submitted entries by the deadline. Applications are available in commissaries worldwide and online. To apply for a scholarship, the student must be a dependent, unmarried child, younger than 21 (or 23, if enrolled as a full-time student at a college or university) of either a service member on active duty, a reservist, a guardsman or a retiree, or the survivor of a military member who died while on active duty, or the survivor of a retiree. Eligibility is determined using the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System, or DEERS, database. Applicants should ensure that they, as well as their sponsor, are enrolled in the DEERS database and have a current military ID card. The applicant

must also be planning to attend or already attending an accredited college or university, full time, in fall 2016 or be enrolled in a program of study designed to transfer directly into a four-year program. Applicants, who are awarded a full scholarship or receive an appointment to one of the military academies or affiliated preparatory schools, are not eligible to receive funds from this program. A full scholarship is usually defined as one that provides for payment of tuition, books, lab fees and other expenses. The scholarship program is administered by the Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides assistance to service members and their families. Scholarship Managers, a national, nonprofit, scholarship-management services organization, manages and awards the military scholarships. If students have questions about the scholarship program application, they should call Scholarship Managers at 856-616-9311 or email them at militaryscholar@ ............................................................................Feb. 4, 2016

Overcome your weight-loss plateau By Human Performance Resource Center Staff

Photo by Vladimir Gjorgiev /

Have you been watching what you eat and exercising regularly, but for some reason, the scale just won’t budge? You might be at a “plateau” in your weight-loss journey. But with continued effort and persistence, you can do it! If you want to shed those last few pounds, try these ideas on for size: Track it. To keep old, unhealthy eating habits at bay, keep a food diary or record your intake through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s SuperTracker. This online program helps you see where your calories are coming from. Don’t forget

to watch your portion sizes too. Stick to your plan. Remember the fundamentals of a healthy eating plan: nutrient-rich, lean sources of protein such as fish, poultry, beans, nuts, and low-fat dairy products. Make sure to include whole grains, fruits, and vegetables too. It’s okay to indulge a little, but too many “cheat days” can ruin all your hard work. Eat protein. Protein helps preserve lean body mass (muscle) during weight loss, promote fat loss, and contribute to a feeling of fullness. Use HPRC’s Protein Requirements infosheet to calculate your individual protein needs. Rethink your drinks. Alcohol and sugar-sweetened beverages such as soda, sweet tea, juice, energy drinks, and sports drinks can add too many calories and prevent you from losing weight. Stick to water and low-fat milk (or soymilk) during meals and in-between to stay hydrated. Three servings of milk per day is the limit though! Shake things up. Varying the type, intensity, duration, and frequency of your exercise is a great way to challenge yourself and prevent boredom— and it can make a big difference toward reaching your goal. Whatever you do, don’t give up. Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is better for your health, career, and performance.

On Feb. 1, 2016, most copays for prescription drugs at home delivery and retail network pharmacies will increase slightly. The 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, requires TRICARE to change its prescription copays. All drugs at military pharmacies, and generic drugs through home deliv-

ery, are still available at no cost to beneficiaries. Copays for brand name drugs through home delivery increase from $16 to $20, for up to a 90day supply. At retail pharmacies, generic drug copays go from $8 to $10, and brand name drug copays go from $20 to $24 dollars, for up to a 30-day supply. Copays for non-formulary drugs and for drugs at non-network pharmacies will also change. Beneficiaries can save up to $208 in 2016 for each brand name prescription drug they switch from retail pharmacy to home delivery. Home delivery offers safe and convenient delivery of your prescription drugs right to your mailbox.

Sleep is a performance asset By Human Performance Resource Center Staff

Sleep is vital. Think about it: sleep loss causes performance to suffer, but getting plenty of sleep results in better performance. Most people wouldn’t consider going without food or water, and sleep is no different — it’s a necessity. Lack of sleep is equivalent to being drunk. In fact, after being awake for 18-20 hours, you’d function as if you had a blood-alcohol content of .1%, or about four drinks for a 150-pound man. Little or no sleep affects your eye-hand coordination, reaction time, and multitasking abilities — and how you remember important sequences, remain attentive, and stay

organized. If you’re tired, you may be able to learn skills and work well enough, but training while fatigued might impact your ability to do your best. Many people believe that they can overcome being tired or “get used to it.” But evidence suggests sleeping only 6 hours can jeopardize your resilience, health, and well-being. As people become more sleep-deprived, they become less aware that they’re impaired. When someone says, “I’m used to being tired,” they’re simply used to having impaired awareness and judgment. When possible, sleep more to help boost your energy level, thinking ability, and readiness.

It’s Faschi

Annual celebr parades, fairs By Nadine Bower

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs

Get your Halloween costume back out of the closet and get ready to shout “Helau!” as loud as you can – it’s that time of the year when Germany celebrates its “fifth” season. Every February, Fasching gets into full swing with big parades on the streets and fairs in the cities to celebrate the beginning of the Lenten season. The early beginnings of Fasching, Carneval or how the locals of the Rhein Main area call it – “FastPhotos by Anemone Rueger nacht” – date back to around 3,000 Members of the Mainzer Ranzengarde, the oldest Fasching orangization in Mainz and founded in 1837, B.C., when tribes were celebrating the wedding of a deity. take part in the 2015 Mainz Fasching parade. Even the Romans celebrated their god Saturnus with a big festival in January and people in the medieval times continued this tradition by dressing up and dancing around the castles, mocking the clergy. Although the Fasching tradition almost died out during the Reformation and was halted again during the two world wars, it came back to full bloom in the 1950’s, especially in Köln, Duesseldorf and Mainz, where it gave people in the post-war era new hope and encouraged them to “laugh in tears” (Lache unter Tränen). In modern times, the three cities are Germany’s Fasching capitals. The big party starts out on Thursday – this year on Thursday, Feb. 4, when women carry a pair of scissors to cut off the ties of men, literally cutting off the symbol of men’s power. On Friday, the so-called Soot Friday, children are allowed to smear soot into people’s faces. However, this custom is not practiced much anymore. Saturday brings the first big parades to the cities. Residents of Wiesbaden are lucky, because they have access to the Fasching festivities in two German cities – Wiesbaden and Mainz. While the Kinderfest in the pedestrian area of Wiesbaden features the younger Fasching generation in a big parade through the downtown pedestrian area
