U.S. team victorious at international contest By Shayna Brouker U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs Office

For the first time in 20 years, American marksmen won bragging rights at Monte Kali. The Wiesbaden team consisting of 1st Lt. Jarod Steen, 1st Lt. Hans Seller, 1st Lt. John Scudder and 1st Lt. Joel Castillo took first place in the interna-

tional team (non-German) category at the 31st annual Monte Kali International Shooting Competition, Europe’s premiere intermilitary shooting event. More than 1,800 Soldiers from 13 countries took part in the event May 8-10 at the Wackernheim Range Complex. Company D, 1st Battalion, 214th Aviation

Regiment, 12th Combat Aviation Brigade, served as the lead U.S. proponent for the event, where Soldiers can qualify on different firearms, compete in team shooting events and simply get to know their brothers-in-arms from around Europe. “It’s a chance to bring everyone together and build camaraderie and see different styles and techniques,” said Capt. Michael Connelly, company commander of Company D, 1-214th Aviation Regiment and officer-incharge of the range for the second year in a row. Camo as far as the eye could see, differing only slightly in pattern and color; the sound of gunfire peppering conversations in French, German, English, Italian and Dutch; the smell of currywurst wafting through the air — these peculiarities set the scene for Monte Kali. Ranges were set up for Soldiers to try their trigger finger at the Swiss SIG 5.56 semi-automatic rifle, German Walther See Monte Kali on page 4

“I could have used another cup of coffee, but I feel OK.” That was Gina Twyman’s reaction after raking in $570.61 worth of goods during a two-minute commissary shopping spree May 12. Twyman, a community volunteer, won the shopping spree during the U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden’s Volunteer

Appreciation Luncheon. As members of Wiesbaden’s Army Community Service staff stood by waving pom-poms and cheering Twyman on, she raced through the Wiesbaden Commissary collecting items. “It’s a little surprising,” she said. “I’m not a competitive person by nature. “I’ve been volunteering since I was in high school. It’s just a part of being See Shopping on page 3

Not all that glitters is gold in European scams With the onset of spring, Army law enforcement officials again expect to see cases of swindlers trying to defraud Americans traveling in Europe. “One popular scam involves someone flagging down vehicles to get money by falsely claiming they need help,” said Joseph Day, law enforcement chief at the USAREUR Office of the Provost Marshal in Wiesbaden. This approach often happens close to

a barracks gate, at a highway rest stop or on a road outside of town where you have to drive slowly. Often the scammers entice large sums from their victims by offering them gold jewelry as collateral, claiming they will pay the money back later. Unfortunately the rings and chains that change hands turn out to be worthless brass imitations. A variation of this scam involves beggars who

give passers-by a “gold” ring stating that the ring no longer fits. If someone accepts the gift, the man or woman then begs for money and can become quite aggressive if the ring recipient does not want to part with any money. Again, the supposed gold ring is really made of brass. Another swindle involves someone in a car claimSee Scams on page 4

News and features Officials address issues of concern at noise forum By Karl Weisel

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs Office

Host nation and U.S. military officials met to discuss ways to reduce the effects of aircraft noise on the local population during the garrison’s first Noise Abatement Commission meeting of 2014. “This is a forum where we can exchange ideas and discuss suggestions,” said Col. David Carstens, U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden commander, welcoming Wiesbaden Lord Mayor Sven Gerich, members of the U.S. Army Europe aviation staff and fellow area mayors to the forum in the Community Activity Center May 6. Noting that it was the first time for many of the surrounding town mayors to attend the forum, Carstens said, “While this forum exists to discuss concerns, it also exists to find solutions.” Gerich underscored the importance of the semi-annual NAC meeting saying, “You can see through the extended circle of participation that we’ve already achieved quite a lot.” During the meeting participants were given an in-depth look at the numbers of flight movements so far this year as compared to other years, a breakdown of flight noise complaints

the same as last year. “Overall we can attest that the U.S. Army is complying with the (host nation’s) rules and regulations regarding flights,” said Bundeswehr Maj.

Spouses serenaded, feted at ACS luncheon Story and photos by Shayna Brouker

U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden Public Affairs Office

They’re usually running the show behind the scenes, but spouses were in the spotlight at Army Community Services’ Military Spouse Appreciation Luncheon May 2. Members of the U.S. Army Europe Chorus crooned and danced for attendees, taking time to serenade some on bended knee. U.S. Army Garrison Commander Col. David Carstens offered grateful words, acknowledging that while service members’ missions simplify when they deploy, they “dump all the challenges into your lap to deal with alone.” “My No. 1 most-hated Army term is ‘dependent,’” Carstens said. “I say ‘baloney’ to that. If anyone is dependent, it’s me who is dependent on my wife to keep things together.” Camille Howes, a strategic planner for the garrison, served as keynote speaker. She admitted that she had “no idea” what it was like to be a military spouse, so she solicited input from spouses through an online survey. What she learned forever changed her, she said. One woman said she had a master’s degree but had to beg for GS-4 jobs.

Sgt. DeAntey Turner serenades military spouses during the luncheon held at the ACS cafeteria in their honor. Another had been separated from and was unable to speak with her husband for an entire year. The two biggest takeaways were that the top challenge is the time separated from their service member, and that transition is a type of torture, noted Howes. “Not only is it the packing up of an entire house, it’s a search for new doctors, dentists and friends — and it’s the pits,” she said. “When I think about your

jobs it’s like taking a drink from a fire hydrant. This is a flavor of patriotism I’m not sure I’ve considered before. You humble me.” Howes told the story of a nongovernmental organization worker who was tasked with improving Vietnam’s child malnutrition problem in six months with minimal resources and a barebones staff, a seemingly impossible mission. He noticed that some moms — “bright

spots” — fed their children four times a day and included sweet potato greens and shrimp in addition to rice, providing essential nutrients. Their children were stronger and bigger. When he recruited these women to teach others to cook and employ good food safety practices, 65 percent of the children in that village were healthier and stayed that way. She identified spouses in attendance as the “bright spots” in the Wiesbaden community and encouraged them to reach out to others — especially as permanent change of station, or PCS season approaches. “People in our community, they don’t need stuff. They need to know someone cares,” Howes said. “What looks like loneliness is often a lack of clarity,” adding that while she’s lived in Wiesbaden six years, it took three years before she felt comfortable venturing to local stores and shops. Support can be as simple as bringing a new neighbor a fresh batch of homemade cookies, giving someone a hug or inviting someone to lunch, she said. ACS also offers Spouse’s Chat, an opportunity to meet and network with other spouses, May 28 at 1 p.m. at Texasstrasse 57, Apartment 1 in Hainerberg Housing. For more information call ACS at civ (0611) 408-0234.

Reduce, reuse, recycle: Green Boot Club tours landfill

DPW specialist, explained the importance of sorting recyclables. “If you have one person who’s too lazy to throw Recycling in Germany is an operation worthy of a field trip — and that’s just what Hainerberg Elementary something in the right container, the whole truck can be rejected, costing €100 to €150 per truck of paper,” School third- through fifth-graders did. Members of the Student Council and Green Boot he said. “That’s why I tell them every week, ‘You are so Club, which is responsible for collecting and recycling all paper and plastic from the school, visited the ESWE important for our school to save money,’” added Lynn landfill and recycling center May 7 to get a tour of the Wheeler-Sahm, Hainerberg Elementary School kindergarten teacher in charge of the Green Boot Club. facilities and see the fruits of their labor.

Gordon Adam, that produce heat and electricity for the complex. The center burns recycled wood to heat the ESWE buildings, and eventually housing in Newman Village. Solar panels also provide power. “They look like TVs, or a giant chocolate bar,” observed one student. Rain water that runs off the surface of the landfill is collected and treated to be “clean-ish,” according to Gordon, and dumped into the Rhein River. The rest is routed into ponds at the base of the trash mountain that are pure enough for fish to live in. The surrounding nature preserve is home to the rare red and black kites, Gordon Adam talks to Hainerberg Elementary School students numerous other rare birds, foxes and even house cats. atop the landfill during their visit to the ESWE reycling center.

The students were especially impressed with the herd of sheep, or “biological lawnmowers,” as Gordon described them, which roam about the top of the landfill and keep the grass trimmed. Yadrianna Cruz, 10, said she was proud to wear the club’s T-shirt. She joined because she “wanted to help save the Earth.” “A dirty Earth can hurt us, plants and animals,” she said. Every Thursday, she and 26 other students in the club take 45 minutes to go around to all the classrooms in the school to collect paper and plastic and bring them to the receptacles outside. They also help teachers show students which items go in each bin. “They are ambassadors for recycling,” said Wheeler-Sahm, who has lived in Germany for 24 years. “It’s interesting for them to see the end results of their efforts at school and where it goes next. [Recycling] is so doable, it’s a shame to see people not doing it.” ESWE offered more recycling tips, such as simply leaving yogurt cups “spoon clean” rather than washing them out so as not to waste water. Used paper towels, often a source of confusion, should be thrown away with organic waste. And when in doubt, just throw it in the trash. Just one misplaced recyclable can render a whole truckload un-recyclable. For more information on recycling in Germany, visit or contact DPW at civ (0611) 705-9999.

Legal advice

Ensure compliance with Affordable Care Act Congress enacted the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2010 with the goal to increase the number of Americans covered by health insurance and decrease the cost of health care. One key provision in the ACA is its individual mandate, which requires most Americans to maintain “minimum essential” health insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents. For those who are not exempt, and who do not receive health insurance

through an employer or a government program, the means of satisfying the requirement is to purchase insurance from a private company, typically via a state-run exchange or marketplace. Beginning in 2014, those who do not comply with this mandate must make a shared responsibility payment to the Internal Revenue Service for each month of noncompliance. Do Tricare health plans met the ACA’s minimum essential coverage requirement? Tricare offers three basic options for non-Medicare eligible beneficiaries: Tricare Prime, Tricare Standard, and Tricare Extra. Additionally, individuals who are eligible for Medicare and otherwise eligible for Tricare, may enroll in Medicare Part B and receive wraparound Tricare coverage through the Tricare For Life plan. It was accepted that each of the major Tricare plans was part of a government program; however, among them only the TFL plan was expressly mentioned in ACA’s original list of MEC examples. Congress responded by passing Public Law 111-159, the Tricare Affirmation Act of 2010. That Act amended the ACA’s list at 26 U.S. Code 5000A.f.1.A.iv to say more broadly that all Photo by Karl Weisel medical coverage under Chapter 55 of Title 10 of the United States Code, including coverage under the Tricare program, meets MEC. Therefore, our large, commonlyAFN Wiesbaden staff members video as Patrice Reinknown Tricare plans do count as MEC, hard, Directorate of Public Works’ chief of Roads and and the vast majority of our beneficiaries Grounds, explains the job of tending the grounds to Col. will already be ACA-compliant.

eficiary who has not yet purchased Medicare Part B. The second question, primarily voiced by our retirees, concerns what effect Overseas Continental United States residency has on the mandate. According to IRS guidance, all U.S. citizens living in the U.S., along with all permanent residents and all foreign nationals who are in the U.S. long enough during a calendar year to qualify as resident aliens for tax purposes, are subject to the mandate. U.S. citizens living abroad are still subject to the mandate, unless they meet one of two sets of criteria. Meeting criterion “deems” the citizen as having MEC and thus he or she is not subject to the penalty. The first criterion is for U.S. citizens who are not physically present in the United States for at least 330 full days within a 12-month period. If met, such citizens are deemed MEC-compliant for those 12 months. The alternative criterion is for U.S. citizens who are bona fide residents of a foreign country for an entire taxable year. If met, such citizens are deemed MEC-compliant for that year. U.S. citizens who meet neither the physical presence nor residency criteria will need to secure MEC (which they can do merely by maintaining Tricare coverage), qualify for an ACA exemption or make the shared responsibility payment for each month of the year. The key provisions to review when addressing OCONUS questions are 26 U.S.C. 5000A.f.4 and 26 U.S.C. 911.d.1. As this is a complicated issue, U.S. citizens living abroad who have questions are encouraged to consult with a certified public accountant for specific tax guidance based on their particular circumstances.

Schools page — Partners in education Shadowing mom gives career insight Commentary by Kierra Carr Special to the Herald Union

A recent opportunity gave me an insight to how hard my mother works at her occupation. I had a chance to go to work with my mom on April 24 when Hainerberg Elementary School hosted “bring your daughter to work day.” My mom works as an aide for children who need extra assistance in the classroom. I went through the same routine as my mom did, waking up at 6:15, getting dressed and reporting to work at 7:45. In the first classroom we went to, all the kids were vivacious. My mom and I worked with two in particular who were amazing and ready to get to work. I helped a child come up with a creative story about dancing turtles. It was interesting witnessing the different ideas the children came up with. Next, we went to the computer lab and worked on interactive fractions and decimals. To be honest, it was a refresher for myself. Most of the kids were moving onto the next question, breezing by the online math equations while I was still working out the fraction in my head. The following task was a spelling test. Most of the spelling errors came from students spelling a word by its pronunciation and forgetting the silent letters and sounds in a word. It reminded me of the words I can spell easily without having to think about if the word “vacuum” has two Cs or two Us.

In the class after that, kids were reading a book and had to choose their favorite character in the story. They all had to describe their character’s personality and appearance based on the content they read about on that particular role. I helped the kids by focusing directly on their person and what kind of attitude and tone their character had to determine their personality traits. My fifth class was working on division problems. Most kids couldn’t grasp the concept of division because they learned multiplication first and by nature they just wanted to multiply everything. My group worked from mini white dry-erase boards and markers. If they went wrong on a step I could help by simply erasing the error. They were fascinated by how much easier division is once you break down the steps. Before I knew it, it was the final class of the day and they were working on my least favorite subject of all — science. They had to read four pages in the science book and answer the questions following. Most of the students had to refer back to the text. After the day was over, it was an eye-opener that being an elementary school educator was a field I would most likely not go in to. It requires a lot of explaining because at that age, kids are so curious as to why something is the way it is. Overall, I am glad that I got to spend a whole day with my mom and have the opportunity to take part in a new learning experience. (Kierra Carr is a student intern with the Herald Union.)

Porta patet, cor magis! The door is open … more so the heart!


This is a traditional motto used by Cistercian monks. This is exactly what our visitors can expect here at Kloster Eberbach: an ancient abbey with doors wide open for our guests and friends. Staying at Kloster Eberbach During the Middle Ages travelers found rest, refreshment and meals at the Cistercian Abbey of Eberbach. The team at Kloster Eberbach’s restaurant continues this tradition and does everything to make visitors and guests staying in the picturesque monastery as pleasant as possible. During the time of Cistercian monks, farmyards and stables provided lodging. In the late 1990s, careful restorations have transformed the original guest house. Today the monastery boasts 28 hotel rooms, several meeting and function rooms and a restaurant. The buildings are located within the walls of the monastery complex, quiet and secluded in the heart of the Rheingau, only a short distance from Wiesbaden. Kloster Eberbach’s 40 employees and managing director Mathias Marschollek, welcome all of their guests.

Klosterschänke (monastery tavern) Indulge at the Klosterschänke! From little snacks, à la carte menu, to sophisticated multi-course meals, our kitchen offers diversity not only for monastery visitors, hikers and hotel guests, but also for wedding and birthday guests, family celebrations and corporate events.

We place a great emphasis on quality ingredients for our meals, using local produce and offering regular seasonal and regional dishes. Our restaurant, with a historic vaulted ceiling, invites 150 guests to experience Rheingau hospitality with food and drinks at large or small tables. Regional and good local cuisine made with the finest ingredients are served in the historic Klosterschänke. From hearty snacks to the exquisite menu the Klosterschänke is always worth a visit be it for culinary events, low-key outings or celebrations. We are happy to plan your customized menu for you.

For your health Gaining relief by managing stress Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Judith Hamrick U.S. Army Public Health Command

Hassles. Short deadlines. Unrealistic expectations. Life today is full of stress. And lots of things can cause it. Stress can cause symptoms in many areas of life including physical, mental, emotional, social or spiritual. Stress can make one ill or leave one susceptible to injuries. It can cause headaches, stomach discomfort, trouble sleeping, or leave one feeling run down, irritable or forgetful. The bad news is that all stress cannot be avoided. The good news is that some stress is healthy. It motivates people to accomplish things and to make necessary changes. It is also something a person can influence. A person’s attitude can help him or her handle stress. Sometimes one needs to gain perspective by stepping back from a problem and asking how important it is. What will it matter 100 years from now? Sometimes one needs to grieve the loss, theft

or death of a person, object, opportunity or status. Sometimes one needs to go with the flow and be flexible, accepting the things outside of one’s control. At other times, it helps to do something. In such times, a person must first determine what is causing the stress. Is it a shortage of time, energy, money or space? Is it a conflict of values? Is the stress coming from one’s job, environment, personal relationships or personal expectations? Where is it possible to make a change? If there are many stressors, it helps to choose one or two areas to change. Changing too many things at once often causes more stress. Making changes that affect the biggest stressors often has the added benefit of relieving stress in other areas. The most critical factor in dealing with stress is control. Knowledge and planning are important aspects of control. The most difficult things a person will face are the unanticipated and the unavoidable. However, one can prevent or lessen some problems

by planning, and this can lower stress. Next, one can plan ways of coping with the stress. Regular exercise, adequate sleep, a healthy diet and lifestyle and interacting with others help to keep one healthy and to regain perspective and the mental energy necessary to solve problems. Taking care of one’s spirit also helps in managing stress. Many things like journaling, meditating, time management, play, hobbies, laughter and singing can help refresh the spirit. Trying something new occasionally will help to avoid boredom. One must put his or her plan into action in order for it to be effective. A person should allow at least three weeks for his or her plan to bring some relief. After three weeks, it helps to reevaluate one’s stress level and adjust the plan as needed, by trying different ways to lower stress in the same area, or by dealing with another area that is causing stress. Those unable to find relief from their stress are encouraged to speak with a chaplain or mental health provider.

or most people, a European experience would not include Montenegro. It is off the beaten path and not well-known by most Europeans, let alone Americans. Yet there I was in pursuit of a go-and-see philosophy that includes visiting everywhere that is adequately safe and conscientiously possible. My travel companion Jayne Short did travel down the Adriatic coast in the 1970s, so it wasn’t entirely unfamiliar. Montenegro was settled with numerous changes in geopolitical powers, including centuries under the Republic of Venice and years of Ottoman control. After the dissolution of Yugoslavia in 1991, the state union of Serbia and Montenegro was established. In 2006 the state passed a historical referendum on independence. In 2010 it became a member of the European Union. Montenegro has an international airport located in Podgorica, the inland capital that was known as Titograd under the communist dictatorship. A major business center endowed with comfortable hotels and ample availability of good food, it makes a logical base camp for daytrips. It is surrounded by vistas of snowcapped mountains that we enjoyed from our panoramic hotel restaurant. Our first clue on perilous driving in Montenegro was the car rental company’s €800 deposit. Montenegro is a mountainous country dominated by switchbacks and hairpin turns on narrow roads, with livestock roaming freely and a very casual driving mentality. Montenegro translates to “black mountain,” and we also soon discovered that going over or through a mountain brings you to another mountain. It did not take a translator to understand

BREAKFASTS THAT DON’T TASTE LIKE CARDBOARD Swimsuit season is just around the corner and that means getting yourself ready for beach vacations and bikinis. But this time of year can also mean anxiety and stress trying to shed those pesky winter pounds. Everyone knows that the healthiest way to lose weight is to eat portioned, low-calorie meals and to endure a lot of exercise. Lots of people think they should skip meals like breakfast in order to lose weight. However, you are actually doing yourself a huge disservice as well as slowing down your weight loss. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s the meal that kick starts your metabolism and gets you moving and grooving for the rest of the day. So let’s go over a few healthy and energy packed breakfasts to jump start your day and weight loss.

Yogurt with Fruit and Granola

Instead of going for a fast food breakfast or sugary cereal, try making yourself a large bowl

of low-fat vanilla yogurt with your favorite fruits and granola pieces. This breakfast is extremely filling and low calorie. With only 300 calories in the entire dish, you can make this breakfast all your own. Add your favorite or seasonal fruits like strawberries, blueberries or oranges to get healthy amounts of sugar and antioxidants. Put fresh honey or lemon juice in your yogurt in order to give your metabolism a much-needed morning jumpstart.

Scrambled Egg Burritos

For this breakfast go south of the border for your healthy morning food fix. If you need carbs in the morning, use whole grain tortillas and scrambled eggs to make a filling and delicious breakfast that you don’t even realize is less than 300 calories. Add a touch of salsa and cheese (with discretion) along with a serving of your favorite fruit for a great start to the day.

Low-Calorie Cereal

Cereal is a breakfast staple in the American diet. Ever since the

Kellogg brothers started massmanufacturing their cereal recipe, it has been in ever pantry in the country. People like cereal because it has texture, flavor and is easy to make. Unfortunately, not every low-calorie cereal is delicious, but brands like Special K and Cheerios are simple, tasty and low-calorie. Add honey or fruit to your cereal if you want extra flavor and be sure to use low-fat or almond milk too.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon and Pecans

Oatmeal has been the breakfast staple for centuries. Oats are a really healthy way to get carbs for energy and fiber, which will help keep you feeling full for longer. Oatmeal is great brain fuel for the student and perfect on those cold winter mornings. Most families use instant oatmeal, so just be sure to only add less than a tablespoon of butter. Also add cinnamon to help support weight loss and pecans for texture.

Fruit Smoothies

If you’re in a rush in the morning and don’t have time to cook your breakfast, making a quick fruit smoothie can still give you the energy you need without losing time. Just add fruits blueberries and pomegranates to yogurt with ice and you have a low calorie breakfast on the go! Or you can try your own combinations. A blender’s limitation is only what can’t blend, so use your imagination. Author Profile: M.G. Bachemin is associated with Pearl Wine Co. She’s an advocate of eating healthy and believes that all starts with breakfast.

Boelckestr. 62 55252 Mainz-Kastel

Create a compact SUV? No, we’d rather think outside the box. We’ve created what we always create: a sports car. Five doors, five seats and yet intimate with the road; boasting plenty of space for hobbies, leisure and sport. But no room for compromise. Compact, concentrated and intensive, but still powerful. Practical but never ordinary. The new Macan – built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever-present, and in which new challenges are a permanent driving force. Built for a life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions and feels all the more authentic for it. Direct and intimate. A sports car that gives us what we’re looking for: that feeling of being alive.
