Families and youth were hopping around U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden’s Clay Kaserne in search of candy-filled eggs, facts, and figures during the American Red Cross Easter Egg scavenger hunt, March 19. This non-traditional egg hunt was organized to bring attention to the Red Cross history, mission and programs in Wiesbaden and worldwide, said Bethany Haworth, station manager, USAG Wiesbaden Red Cross. With baskets and mobile phones in hand, 14 teams gathered at the Red Cross, ready to hit the streets to decipher clues, collect colorful eggs with puzzle pieces inside, and learn more about an important international service and relief organization along the way. “Maintain your excitement,” said Haworth, as she explained how the egg hunt would work. “Some locations are closer, and some are farther away,” she said. The event started with a frenzy of activity as team members rummaged through stacks of old Herald Union newspapers to find an envelope with location clues. The Wright family stayed indoors, where it was warm, to strategize, while other teams just headed out with clues in hand, and without a plan - a strategy that worked for first place finishers, Heidi Clemons and her son Kyle. At each of the 11 locations, teams had to answer a Red Cross trivia question. “Name one class the Wiesbaden Red Cross teaches?” asked Earle Small, a volunteer manning the Health Clinic location. “CPR,” said Shane Steenberge, collecting another egg for his sons Connor and Quinn who came along for the ride. Together with wife, Sarah, their team now had three eggs before departing for the next location. “The hardest question was listing the Red Cross four-step blood donation process,” said Aspen Tallent, which includes registering, a mini-physical, donating blood, and refreshments.

In memory of Juergen Maier

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden regrets to announce the recent passing of a beloved colleague and friend, Juergen Maier, after a prolonged illness. Maier was a lead driver training instructor at the Logistics Readiness Center. He worked in U.S. Army Europe since 1981 serving both the Heidelberg and Wiesbaden communities for more than 33 years. He was a long-term member of the district-level local national Works Council. His passing is met with great sorrow for all that knew and worked with him.

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden community members are reminded to remain vigilant and practice personal protection measures at all times. If you see something, say something immediately, call the MP desk at (0611) 705-114 or the Polizei at 110. Visit the USAREUR Reporting Portal at http://

Personal protective measures:

– Stay informed via official channels, news reports, etc., about current potential threats. – Avoid large public gatherings such as demonstrations or rallies. If you encounter such gatherings, leave the area as quickly as possible. – Keep a low profile and try to “blend in” to the local environment. In public, avoid wearing or carrying overtly American or military clothing or other items. – Be unpredictable. Vary routines such as routes and departure times to and from work. – When traveling, become familiar with local emergency numbers and places that could serve as refuge, such as a military installation, embassy or police station. Learn or carry a few key phrases in the local language, such as “I need a police officer” or “I need a doctor.” – Instruct your family and associates not to provide strangers with information about you or your family. – When leaving office or home, be sure to tell someone where you’re going and when you expect to get there.

Crime Prevention

Protect your home by taking the following measures: – When not present, lock doors and windows (close rolladens). – Ensure proper exterior lighting (motion sensors). Leave a light on inside your home. – Do not open your home to solicitation attempts. – Report any suspicious activity in the neighborhood.

At events

– Carry bags and purses with the flap or lock side closest to your body. – Do not leave bags, purses or jackets unattended or draped over the back of a chair as a thief will take advantage of your inattention to strike. – Large crowds bring out pickpockets. Avoid becoming a victim by taking a few precautions: Carry only the necessary cash, debit, or credit cards to accomplish your planned task and distribute your cash, cards and cell phone in different locations on your body to avoid losing everything.

Off-post uniform wear reminder

Wearing uniforms off-post is prohibited. There are only a few exceptions to the no uniform wear off-installation restriction. Uniform wear is not authorized while riding motorcycles/scooters, bicycles or while on foot, or any form of public transportation. Carrying backpacks or other items that convey Department of Defense affiliation is discouraged. DoD personnel in off-installation hotels may wear uniforms when departing or arriving in an enclosed vehicle, but uniform wear in public areas of hotels such as breakfast, dining rooms or fitness rooms is prohibited. Wearing uniform while escorting children to/from or waiting at off-installation DoDDS bus stops is prohibited.

Continued from page 1 three days tested their mental toughness and physical strength. As Soldiers must be versed in a variety of warrior tasks outside of their primary military occupational skill, competitors were expected to be proficient in more than 40 Warrior Tasks and Battle Drills, but didn’t know which seven they would face until they entered the STX lanes. In addition to the difficulty levels of each individual event, the Soldiers battled fatigue and injuries as the competition allowed for minimal rest time. For some, the final event, a 12-mile timed road march, proved to be the most difficult task. Soldiers were required to carry a 35-pound rucksack, wear their Improved Outer Tactical Vest and finish the march in less than three hours to receive points. This would be the competitors’ final opportunity to rack up points in hopes of winning Installation Management CommandEurope’s Best Warrior, a title which meant something different to each person. For some it was to prove they were among the best, for others it was a chance to refine Soldier skills to become a better troop.

Wiesbaden honors women in public service

Dr. Susan Hargis, Wiesbaden Middle School Principal, reminds Soldiers and civilians that it is a privilege to be a female, and a gift to be a public servant during the Wiesbaden National Women’s History Day event speech at the Tony Bass Auditorium, March 24. Story and photos by Amy L. Bugala U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs

Positive female role models are key to inspiring women to continue breaking barriers and glass ceilings in life and public service. That was the message guest speaker, Dr. Susan Hargis, Principal, Wiesbaden Middle School shared

during the U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden’s Women’s History Month event at the Tony Bass Auditorium on Clay Kaserne, March 24. Growing up in the deep south, Hargis said she can’t count the number of women who have mentored her in her life. “There are too many,” she said. She has learned from her grandmother, girlfriends, neighborhood women, mothers of friends, and even Oprah she said. “She [Oprah] taught us how to treat other women. Women don’t compete with each other. We don’t put each other down. We aren’t the enemy,” she said recalling just one lesson she learned growing up watching Oprah. Hargis calls this the ‘Oprah effect’, or womenfriend effect, and believes today’s young women aren’t getting a daily dose of being empowered and in turn empowering other women to do great things. “We support, we lift, we love, and we comfort each other. We help each other get to the next rung on the ladder,” she said emphasizing the importance of having a network of female friends and role models throughout life in order to pull one another up to that glass ceiling. As an educator, Hargis speaks and interacts with children all day and knows the responsibility and duty that comes with public service. “What we say impacts people, and as public servants we are in the spotlight,” she said, “We have to be careful.” This year’s event focused on honoring women who have shaped America’s history and its future through public service and government leadership. Hargis said she was shocked to find that many achievements by women in public service have taken place in only the last 100 years.

The ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote took place in 1919, only 97 years ago. Throughout history, women in public service have influenced public policy, championed human rights and led the way to establishing a stronger and more democratic society. “Surely women serving in the military had something to do with Congress passing that amendment,” she said. In 1976 women entered the military service academies for the first time and in 2016 all military occupations and positions opened to women. Of the 1.46 million active duty members, 15 percent are female, of which 161,415 are enlisted; 39,277 are officers; and in 2016, three are Army Rangers. During the event volunteers recognized a few of the 2016 National Women’s History Month honorees by reading their biographies and highlighting the diversity of challenges women in public service have faced. We’ve come a long way, said Hargis encouraging Soldiers and civilians to think of ways to move forward to inspire young girls to make a difference. “The glass ceiling that we often talk about, it’s just a little shattered – the glass is still not broken yet,” said USAG Wiesbaden Garrison Commander Col. Mary Martin during her remarks at the event. “In order to break any ceilings or make any change, we have to do it together. The road we travel is still a road to travel, and in all things we do, we must do them together,” Martin added. The event was hosted by the U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Equal Opportunities Office.

Members of Brownie Troop 86 collect a puzzle piece at the Military Police Station on Clay Kaserne from Lisa Ross, special events lead, U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Red Cross, during the Red Cross Easter egg scavenger hunt, March 19. “She was overthinking it,” said her father, Christopher. “She got two of the steps [correct].” The Tallent family, a fiveman team, said they encountered technical difficulties during the hunt yet finished in second place. The Stankovich family, a four-man team, finished in third place. Teams were allowed to use mobile phones when they were stumped. Using internet searches and some lucky guesses, participants learned that 40 percent of the nation’s blood supply is provided by the Red Cross; and the red crescent, and red diamond are two other symbols that are used to identify the international organization. Most importantly, after solving their final location clue, teams learned that the Wiesbaden Red Cross recently moved to building 1201 on King Avenue. More than 18 volunteers assisted with the event including Red Cross Youth program members Ian Snell and Kristen Henry, who helped write the challenging trivia questions and handed out eggs at the Arts and Crafts center location. When not volunteering for events like this, Snell works with the Disaster Speaks summer program to teach kids how to prepare for a disaster and what to do if one happens. First, second, and third place finishers all received a basket of Red Cross goodies and prizes donated by Family and MWR and Little Italy.

Garrison leaders get lesson in history By Emily Jennings

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden staff leadership took a step back in time to get a better understanding of the military history in the area and how that knowledge can help them serve their community today. Directors toured the reconstructed Roman fort of Saalburg, about 33 miles northeast of Wiesbaden, March 21, learning from the guide, and each other, about a military stronghold in the ancient empire, and how although there are obvious differences between the troops’ lives and security strategies from then versus now, there are a surprising number of similarities. The Romans built fences, walls and ditches, to provide an obstacle for would-be attackers, but also to be able to keep tabs on what went in and out of their territory (think today’s ACPs, fencing, customs).As far as force protection, physical security and installation access, technology is really the biggest change, said Lt. Col. Michael Zink, Director of Emergency Services. “They had to rely on torches,

hand signals and flags to relay messages,” he said. “The way we do physical security and force protection has really just changed with electronics.” Without electronics, they used other things such as animals, which can be much less reliable. They brought in and stored provisions, which could be compared to our exchange and commissary, although without the selection we enjoy today. Grain was an essential part of the soldiers’ rations. The barracks of the time, contuberniums, or 8-man tents, didn’t afford much personal space to Roman soldiers, who were not allowed to marry until they retired. There was room for sleeping, storage of weapons and equipment and a handmill, used to grind their daily rations for breadmaking. The Romans were more advanced than one might expect for years in the double and triple digits. Evidence can be seen on the grounds of underfloor heating, a system by which an outside furnace produces heat, which passes through channels underneath the floor tiles and up the wall.

Directors learned about ancient military history on a tour of the reconstructed Roman fort of Saalburg March 21 near Bad Homburg. While there they got an in-depth lesson in Roman history and shared research in their respective fields, comparing the ancient empire to how we do things today. The empire was very multicultural, Sgt. 1st Class Brittney Pechie learned. It was not just a place where people had different beliefs and came from different backgrounds, things that our army is accustomed to, but it welcomed soldiers who spoke different languages and came from different parts of

be very accepting of diversity. “That is something that we could probably learn from [the Romans]” she said. Garrison Commander Col. Mary L. Martin highlighted the importance of looking at the similarities between our garrison and the Roman garrisons

to help streamline the way we do things. “How do we get back to simplistic?” she said. “The Romans may have some lessons to teach us on how to be simple versus being so broad and bring things back down to normal so we can do what we do with the right amount of people.”

Cadet Keiran Smith, Ramstein Cadet Squadron, Wiesbaden Flight, received the prestigious Air Force Association’s “Civil Air Patrol Outstanding Squadron Cadet of the Year Award.” The Air Force Association’s award is bestowed upon the one cadet per squadron who has displayed superior performance during the year. Smith, a cadet chief master sergeant, showcased exemplary leadership skills as well as academic excellence. He was one of the many outstanding cadets considered for this achievement. Smith efforts were recognized by the selection and highlighted his merits that contributed significantly to the Wiesbaden Flight’s success during the past year with his maturity, skill, ingenuity and willingness to take on progressively responsible duties. As with many of the cadets and their positively infectious attitude — was among another reason that Wiesbaden Flight’s Cadet, Cadet Master Sergeant Lena McFarland, earned the Ramstein Cadet Squadron NCO of the Year award.

Learning a sport to enjoy for a lifetime Rheinblick Golf Course offers events and classes By Karl Weisel

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Marketing Office

Although only a 15-minute drive from downtown Wiesbaden, the Rheinblick Golf Course may be one of the U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden’s best-kept secrets. “This is one of the prettiest golf courses that you’ll find in Germany,” said Jerry Beierschmitt, Rheinblick Golf Course superintendent. Besides the view from its location high over the Rhein River Valley above vineyards and set in a forested area just outside of Wiesbaden-Frauenstein, “one of the things that makes Rheinblick special is the difficulty of the golf course,” Beierschmitt said. “The nice view comes at a price. The course is in fantastic condition but can be difficult at times with the hills — along with some challenging greens.” But even with some challenging greens, the course welcomes players of all ages and skill levels with a host of classes, tournaments and opportunities for individual and group activities. “Golfing is most definitely a family activity,” Beierschmitt said. “It is a sport for the whole family to play together … an activity the family can go out and do without any outside distractions (while) getting some exercise and fresh air.” It’s also great for building resiliency, Family and MWR officials stated, noting the positive impact of getting away from the stresses of daily life, individual accomplishments and team-member sharing on the greens. Rheinblick offers several programs to help new players get started. Their Get Golf Ready Program features a series of five, beginner-friendly lessons taught by the professional staff at the golf course for $99. With sessions starting April 18, May 16, June 13, July 11 and Aug. 29, community members can join fellow golfers to learn the fundamentals and to get started on this life-long pastime. Juniors ages 7-17 can also pick up the skills needed to enjoy the game of golf during Professional Golf Association Sports Academy classes offered throughout the spring and summer months. “We offer a full tournament schedule for the year with our three signature events,” Beierschmitt said. “The Rheinblick Open, which is a three-day event, is held on the July Fourth weekend. Then comes the two-day Club and Stroke Play Championship held Sept. 3-4. September also brings competitive spirit out as we have the Army-Air Force challenge Match Sept. 17-18 – a two-day event held in conjunction with Ramstein. “Then we offer what we call the ‘Blickster Series’ – four events with three different formats of play,” he said. These include the Blickster Scramble on April 30, Blickster Chapman on May 28, Blickster Shamble Best Ball July 30 and Blickster 18-Hold Challenge Aug. 27. Cost to enter any of these Blickster events is $20 for members, $35 for U.S. ID cardholder non-members and $75 for all others. “Along with these events, we have Community Scrambles and Friday Night Scrambles throughout the

Golfers work on their swing at the Rheinblick Golf Course driving range. year for all levels of golfers to enjoy,” Beierschmitt said. The Community Scrambles are held every Monday at 6 p.m. May through August (except training holiday weekends) and are open to four-person teams for a competitive nine-hole scramble. Friday Night Scrambles likewise start at 6 p.m. Those who discover they really like the game of golf will want to consider becoming a Rheinblick Golf Course member to save money and enjoy other benefits. “When you become a member of Rheinblick your green fees are free for the year. So you can come play as much as you want to without paying a green fee,” Beierschmitt said. “You’ll also receive a coupon book worth more than $150, along with discounts on tournament entries. “But on top of that, if you go to other military golf courses in Germany, you will receive a discount on your green fees there,” he added. Another best-kept secret about the Rheinblick is its welcoming Golf Restaurant with a patio area where diners can enjoy the view over the course and surrounding countryside. With an extensive menu featuring inexpensive, traditional German cuisine, steaks, Balkan specialties and breakfast, diners will be sure to find something for every taste. “Enjoy a nice meal in the clubhouse as a family,” Beierschmitt said, after a round of golf – or just to enjoy the serenity of location – set in the foothills of the Taunus Mountains. Hikers and bikers are also invited to set off from the Rheinblick parking lot for some time in the woods, before returning for a meal at the Rheinblick Restaurant. The Rheinblick Golf Course is located just off A-66 on Weisser Weg, 65201 Wiesbaden. For membership, programs and other golf opportunities, call DSN 5485485 civ (0611) 143-548-5485 or visit www.wiesbaden.

A group of Wiesbaden High School students is stepping up and volunteering their time to make the transition to a new school a little smoother for newcomers. These Student Ambassadors learned about how to help ease new classmates’ fears and make them feel welcome in their new school at a training session March 24 at the Hainerberg Teen Center. The purpose of the ambassador program is to quickly meet the needs of a transitioning student, said Undra Marbury-Robinson, school counselor and sponsor for the program. “The goal of the program is for students to engage in their community quickly, smoothly and happily.” And these Student Ambassadors are there to help their new classmates do just that. Amani Robinson, a freshman who has been part of the program since school started, has been able to help several students already, showing them around, telling them about the school and bringing them together. “Two of them are best friends now,”

said Amani, who came from a German school before. The training focused on three needs of incoming students: Information, to fit in and friends. They hope to accomplish that by anticipating questions new students might have and preparing activities that will help them feel at home. Activities might include connecting on social media, being paired with another student, sort of like a sponsor, hosting welcome and farewell parties and hanging out at the teen center. Tenth grader D’Netanya Bell began the program this year and has already showed a few new students around the school, she said. Being a very social person has made her an asset for incoming students to make sure they feel welcome and know where to go, she said. And so far, she has seen her efforts pay off. “Every new student that I’ve seen or helped out has made new friends and seems happy,” she said. All this effort is to help make sure newcomers are not only feeling connected and have the opportunity to be a part of the community here, but also to be OK

Wiesbaden High School students listened and gave feedback during a training session for Student Ambassadors. with their move, Marbury-Robinson said. “[The program] has really been working out well,” she said. “It’s needed, it’s important, and it helps kids become a part of the community quickly.”

Army warms up with cold training By Sgt. 1st Class Crista Mack U.S. Army Europe Public Affairs

Thermometers may be sub-zero but in Norwegian winter, freezing is not an option, combat action is not weather dependent and a Soldier does not wait for weather to warm up to react to fire. For the first time, Soldiers from U.S. Army Europe joined 16,000 military personnel from 13 nations in Central Norway’s Exercise Cold Response 2016 to conduct combat operations training in extreme cold weather environments. Joining the training were Company D, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, from Vicenza, Italy, and 2nd Bn., 7th Inf. Regt., 1st Armored Bde. Combat Team, 3rd Inf. Division, from Fort Stewart, Georgia. Cold Response is a Norwegian-led exercise that rehearses high-intensity operations in challenging winter conditions. The exercise involves more than 3,000 U.S. service members; approximately 6,500 members of the Norwegian Armed Forces; and nearly 4,000 troops from 11 allied and partner nations including Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and close to 300 NATO personnel. “This is an exercise where allies come together and train in core competencies of air, land and sea; the land core competency is high intensity warfare, most importantly combined arms maneuvers, operating on both sides, adding on the climate, which makes it more difficult, and gives us good operational enhancement training for all participating,” said Norwegian Lt. Col.

Soldiers from Company D, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade, traverse frigid terrain at Exercise Cold Response 16 in Namsos, Norway. Aleksander Jankov, Norwegian Army spokesperson for the exercise. “We have different challenges in Norway when it comes to climate and topography than some of our other allied partners,” Jankov said. “It’s important to remember for every leader, (both) junior and senior, that operating in cold weather and snowy conditions may have serious consequences although we are not at war because the environment will kill you if you don’t do the right things.” In addition to learning to quickly and effectively operate in a frigid environment, this

exercise is a great opportunity to practice and conduct training essential for security with partner nations, said Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commanding general, U.S. Army Europe. “We are never going to be by ourselves,” Hodges said. “We are always going to be part of a coalition, if not an alliance, so the chance to practice with our partners in Europe is a great opportunity to build trust and confidence.” Canadian Lt. Col. Will Graydon, commanding officer, 3rd Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, operated as exercise commander of a multinational

battle group commanded by a Swedish brigade and in charge of a Canadian and U.S. battalion. “In my battalion, we’re not just Canadians and Americans, we’ve got Swedish and Norwegian Home Guard, so we are already four nations within just one battalion,” Graydon said. “We get to work on interoperability, cohesion, and building partnership, from all levels of leadership. It demonstrates how easy it is to build a team of like-minded nations when you are focused on one goal.”

Army Europe members encouraged to stay vigilant Sgt. 1st Class Crista Mary Mack U.S. Army Europe

With terror attacks becoming more frequent, U.S. Army Europe Soldiers, Department of Defense civilians, contractors and their family members have a number of resources available to stay vigilant and ready. “The recent attacks that we have seen in Brussels and Turkey really highlight that we are facing a significant and persistent threat throughout the theater,” said Robert Balcerzak, deputy chief for U. S. Army Eu-

rope’s Antiterrorism Division. Lt. Gen. Ben Hodges, commanding general of U.S. Army Europe, addressed the attacks and recommended actions for DoD personnel. “I’m saddened by these attacks and my condolences go out to the victims and families. U.S. Army Europe will continue to stand by our Belgian allies ... indeed we must all stand together in the face of these terrorist attacks,” Hodges said. “The reality of these attacks highlights the need for us all to be vigilant. I urge everyone to be aware of their local security

situation, listen to AFN or local news outlets and ensure you are signed up for AtHoc with your local Garrison so that you may have the latest updates.” Balcerzak similarly urged watchfulness. “You are the eyes and ears for the United States Army Europe, therefore if you see something that you think is suspicious, there are many different vehicles with which you can use to report,” he said. “iReport is a downloadable app that you can get on your smartphone which would make a quick way to report any sus-

picious activity, or you can go online to any one of the USAREUR webpages to iWatch, it’s the same mechanism. It’s also important to know that if you see something and it’s an emergency, you need to call an emergency number first, reporting suspicious activity is second to that. “ For individuals considering what may be correct responses or actions to take, Balcerzak recommends the importance of training such as the AntiTerrorism Awareness trainings and Threat Awareness and Reporting Program but it is very ......................................................................

For your health National Public Health Week: Healthiest Nation 2030 By Maj. Rosemary Wosky Wiesbaden Army Health Clinic

The month of April brings with it National Public Health Week, five days of reflection on the health of our nation and the direction we plan to take to ensure optimal health for all our citizens. We often consider ourselves fortunate to be a part of a society with superior health care, but there is still much to do to become the Healthiest Nation by 2030. The truth is, Americans live shorter lives and suffer more health problems than their peers in other high-income countries. In fact, we rank 34th in terms of life expectancy and yet we spend more health dollars per person than any other nation. This strange imbalance is partially due to lifestyle factors that we, as individuals, have control over. It is no secret that our lives have become more sedentary as we have shifted from manual labor to high tech careers. Our diets have changed with a higher reliance on processed food that is easy to cook by busy, working people. The tobacco industry wants your dollars and spends billions on advertising to secure them. We are stressed. We take short cuts in our sleep and often sacrifice moments of relaxation to work on yet another project that life demands. During

this month, take time to consider how your health is now and where you would like it to be in 2030. If you think you need to change things up a bit, consider the following daily tips to improve health during National Public Health Week. Each day brings a new focus to help build a healthier you, one step at a time. Monday: Develop healthy habits Eating balanced meals and exercising regularly helps to prevent chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension and protects your long-term health.

Preventive Medicine employees practice what they preach By Ashley Patoka Regional Health Command - Atlantic

Employees from the Fort Drum MEDDAC Preventive Medicine Department are ensuring they practice what they preach through the implementation of a healthy worksite initiative. A group of about five employees have committed to help each other eat better, work out more and live a healthier lifestyle. They are doing this by pooling their money to buy healthy food for snacks and lunches during the work week, finding time to walk within their schedule and being active throughout the day, according to Susan Mizgala, Fort Drum MEDDAC Public Health nurse. “We each contribute $10 a week, and that gets us a salad for lunch and food to make smoothies and have healthy snacks for the whole work week,” Mizgala said. Capt. Jeremy Brooks, Fort Drum’s dietitian, is also part of this group. He said he thinks it is important for people to know and actually see that eating healthy doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. “I think one of the reasons we are doing this is to show that eating healthy, for a low cost, is possible,” he said. Mizgala, who understands the importance of a healthy lifestyle, had some personal reasons for wanting to participate in this program. “I have a couple of reasons why I did this — personal reasons,” Mizgala said.

Page 14 Herald Union

“One, for my heart health, I do monitor my blood pressure. Both of my parents have high blood pressure, and mine was in the pre-hypertensive zone. Since doing this program, my blood pressure is great; it averages around 110 over 70. I have also had my cholesterol checked — the provider I saw said she hadn’t seen a cholesterol level that good in a long time.” Brooks said he hopes this is a concept that offices across the installation, not just the MEDDAC, can adapt. “This is really about trying to incorporate health and fitness into our workplace, because for most of us, we spend more time in our work environment than we do at home, and if we don’t incorporate a healthy lifestyle into our work life, making the change will be a challenge,” he said. “Being Preventive Medicine, we are really the tip of the spear of health and wellness — so we wanted to set the example … to show that healthy eating and wellness can exist in our busy environment,” Brooks added. Joining together with co-workers not only provides the accountability that so many people look for when starting a new healthy lifestyle, it also helps when keeping the food choices interesting. “Having multiple people involved, with different ideas and bringing in different food items, helps because we get to experience more of a variety,” Mizgala said. “This has been easy, and it has worked well for us. You just have to be creative within your work environment.”

Mizgala also said that this takes the guesswork out of what she will eat for lunch each day. “This is a huge benefit when it comes to having your healthy lunch available. I was usually so busy that I came to work without lunch. At lunch time, I would get something quick and easy to eat, which was not always the healthiest choice. This program has not only improved my health, but has saved me a lot of money as well,” she said. What the staff at Preventive Medicine is doing is just an example of what can be done when employees put their ideas together and set a goal. In addition to eating better, the staff at PM is also using their 15-minute breaks to get in a quick walk and taking their lunch break at the gym. They have adjusted their days so they get up more and move rather than spending their entire day behind a desk. Brooks said he is available to work with any office — across the installation — that would like to come up with ideas on how to incorporate a similar program into their workplace. “Healthy eating doesn’t have to be hard — there are a lot of ways to do it and the tools are out there. I am available to meet with different sections to work with them to establish healthy worksites,” Brooks said. “As long as employees are sticking to their work schedules and are back at their desks when they need to be — possibilities are endless. This is about empowering people to make a change and

giving them the opportunity to succeed.” Brooks added that this is more than just eating healthy, it’s committing to a system of health that improves readiness, performance and resilience in our employees. “We are trying to change the culture. We want to get everyone on board with this; it will permeate to our patients.”

The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery.

The Boss — Academy Award®-nominated star Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Tammy) headlines The Boss as a titan of industry who is sent to prison after she’s caught for insider trading. When she emerges ready to rebrand herself as America’s latest sweetheart, not everyone she screwed over is so quick to forgive and forget. McCarthy is joined in The Boss by an all-star cast led by Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage and Kathy Bates. Directed by Ben Falcone (Tammy), the comedy is based on an original character created by McCarthy and written by McCarthy and Falcone alongside their Groundlings collaborator, Steve Mallory. The film is produced by McCarthy and Falcone through their On the Day productions and Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy through their Gary Sanchez Productions.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant — After the earth-shattering revelations of Insurgent, in Allegiant Part 1 Tris (Shailene Woodley) must escape with Four (Theo James) beyond the Wall that encircles Chicago to finally discover the shocking truth of what lies behind it. Deadpool — Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, the movie tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 — Gold Circle Entertainment and HBO present a Playtone production of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the highestgrossing romantic comedy of all time. Written by Academy Award® nominee Nia Vardalos, who stars alongside the entire returning cast of favorites, the film reveals a Portokalos family secret that will bring the beloved characters back together for an even bigger and Greeker wedding. Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee, Waking Ned Devine) directs the next chapter of the film that will be once again produced by Rita Wilson and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman. Paul Brooks and Steve Shareshian return to executive produce alongside Vardalos and Scott Niemeyer. Universal Pictures will distribute the comedy domestically and in select international territories. BatmanVs. Superman: Dawn of Justice — Fearing the actions of a god-like superhero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman vs Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. Triple 9 — The story follows a group of thieves who plan to kill a young LAPD officer to divert the police away from a daring heist they’re perpetrating across town. The title “Triple Nine” refers to police code indicating that an officer needs immediate assistance. London has fallen — The sequel to the worldwide smash hit “Olympus Has Fallen,” a nonstop, suspenseful action thriller that delivers high-octane excitement through a heightened sense of authenticity. The visceral intensity springs from a timely premise: after the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral becomes a target of a terrorist organization to destroy some of the world’s most powerful leaders, devastate the British capital, and unleash a terrifying vision of the future. The only hope of stopping it rests on the shoulders of the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart) and his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent (Charlotte Riley) who rightly trusts no one. Morgan Freeman also stars as the Vice President of the United States. ....................................................................... March 31, 2016

Taking care of n Robowarriors get machines ready for next competition slated for Las Vegas By Erin Gavle

Special to the Herald Union

“Let’s take care of some nuts and bolts first,” Frank Pendzich said to the assembled group of Wiesbaden High School students. The pun appeared to be lost on them. Pendzich, advisor to the WHS Robowarriors, was, of course referring to metaphorical nuts and bolts—specifically, travel details for the group’s upcoming trip to Las Vegas—not the actual ones they used earlier in the year to assemble a multifunction robot. The team is preparing for another FIRST (For Inspiration of Research Science and Technology) competition, this time in Nevada, following trips to Holland for a scrimmage and Florida for another regional competition that happened earlier this year. The competition puts teams in “alliances” of three robots from different groups who must work together to complete tasks like rolling over obstacles, lifting heavy items and shooting balls into a target.

Because we do have members who are not going on any of the trips who have contributed a lot of time to the team, [and] we appreciate everyone. It’s a good team.” In addition to the alliance battles, there are three awards that the Robowarriors are specifically trying to qualify for: Innovation in Control, Excellence in Engineering and Industrial Design. “Those [awards] are determined by judges in the pit area. They ask questions of the team and I’m not permitted to participate in any way shape or form. It’s what the students come up with,” said Pendzich. The team is cautiously confident in their chances. “When we left Orlando, it was a top notch robot. We know we’re capable of high scores because we scored one of the highest matches in Orlando, and we were the highest scoring team in that alliance,” said Pendzich. “I see big things for us, but I try to temper that to make sure I don’t jinx it.” If Frau POW! 8 is in the top six alliances at the Las Vegas competition, the Robowarriors will qualify to attend the championship in St. Louis. According to Parker, “We’re ready for Las Vegas, we’re really excited.” 31, 2016

Add the mushrooms, roasting them on high heat for 3 minutes. Add onions. Season with salt and pepper. Add sour cream mix. Let it simmer for 2 minutes. Add peas and half of the cheese. Let this simmer for another minute. In a casserole pan, mix potatoes, tuna and mushroom sauce. Bake for 60 minutes. As it bakes, mix chips with remaining cheese, and thyme leaves. Add to the casserole when it has baked one hour. On top of chip mixture add 5-6 small shavings of butter. Put back in oven for 15 minutes.
