Nigerian air force visits CRG, shares ideas by Airmen 1st Class Holly Cook and Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

Colleagues from the Nigerian air force Quick Response Force visited members of the 435th Contingency Response Group Dec. 4 through 6 at Ramstein. Five members of the QRF came to the CRG to gain a better understanding of their construct, capabilities and employment. “Our goal is to address their needs and concerns to improve their own airfield assessment, security forces and emergency medical support,” said Staff Sgt. Luis Devotto, 435th CRG air adviser and NCOIC of special vehicle maintenance. “We are also building a plan for future familiarization activities.” Assisting with training and building partnership capacity with air forces from other nations is one of the missions of the 435th CRG. With these partnerships, the U.S. is able to teach and learn new mission techniques from counterparts from other nations. “I am very excited to be here and to learn,” said Air Commodore Benard U. Chiobi, QRF commander. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to come and see how our partners carry out their mission.” Using their experience in combat support training, construction, airlift support, quick response times and air base security, the 435th CRG shared more effiSee VISIT, Page 3

Supporting aircraft generation by Lt. Col. Lou Marnell 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron

Commentary

W

e’ve all seen the pictures of maintainers launching and fixing aircraft, but there is an important unseen element that makes all of that happen. In the 86th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, the Sortie Support Flight is responsible for equipping maintainers with the tools, equipment and support items that enable us to generate combat airpower every day. These maintainers are also responsible for packing out our UTCs, enabling us to deploy wherever tasked. They also manage several programs, including hazardous waste, bench stock, spare tools, vehicles, aircraft equipment and a number of other areas vital to our success. Support personnel are selected from eight different AFSCs throughout the squadron and typically will be assigned to the section for two years. Here, they will be trained in checking tools and equipment in and out, conducting inspections and assigning programs to conduct daily operations. While checking tools in and out may seem pretty mundane, in the aircraft maintenance career field, every item that goes to the flightline has to be accounted for. If an item is lost on the flightline, it will bring the mission to a halt until the search is conducted and the tool is found. These Airmen are the

last line of defense in making sure we maintain positive tool control. The other big mission of this important flight is to pack up our equipment and deploy it at a moment’s notice. This team can pack out all the tools and equipment we need to support our combatant commanders in a very finite amount of time. While we have exercised this with Operation Readiness Exercises, the team successfully packed out in support of the embassy crisis in Libya. Tech. Sgt. Robert Knowles leads 10 Airmen, covering 24/7/365 operations on the flightline. His team is responsible for the management of more than 30 programs. He was responsible for leading our professionals in packing out tools and equipment to support several real-world operations as well as maintenance recovery teams. They ensured we had everything we needed to generate combat airlift for AFRICOM missions. Additionally, his team manages a 300 item equipment account and more than 1,700 tools. With the winter weather upon us, one of the additional challenges we face is aircraft deicing. Equate this to clearing off your car in the morning and add the challenge of an aircraft with critical flight controls. Staff Sgt. Derek Bennett has filled the role of our vehicle NCO and maintains a fleet of 33 vehicles, including 12 de-ice trucks, which are a critical piece of our winter operations. These

trucks allow our squadron to de-ice not only our C-130J fleet, but also the operational support aircraft and any transient aircraft that fly in and out of Ramstein. He helps develop vehicle requirements, liaises with the professionals in the vehicle readiness squadron to keep the winter fleet ready to go and develops training plans for all of our special vehicles. With the importance of mission accomplishment and the stringent host nation hazardous waste laws, it is important that these assets are running at peak performance. Finally, Senior Airman Michael Lasko maintains one of the most critical programs in our operation. He is responsible for the Hazardous Materials Program as the hazardous waste and unit environmental coordinator. His span of operations includes support to 27 assigned aircraft across five different locations on base. He helps ensure we stay stocked with all hazardous materials to accomplish our mission and then dispose of them properly. If he didn’t ensure that we have the sealant, oil, hydraulic fluid, cleaners and other essential materials, it would bring our operation to a halt. As you can see, it takes an amazing team of Airmen behind the scenes to put those aircraft in the air and deliver the beds, beans, bullets and people our warfighters rely on to support our combatant commanders. Thanks for letting me brag about a couple of them, and thanks for all you bring to the fight!

Get a head start to a ‘Right Finish’ by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

The second Right Finish class was held in the Hercules Theater Dec. 7 on Ramstein. The Right Finish class was started by Airman 1st Class Chiffon Lyles, 786th Force Support Squadron outbound assignments technician. The class offers insight to the basics of assignments including a description of the virtual military personnel flight, the assignment management system and frequently asked questions. “I decided to start this class to save people the time of being concerned about the assignments process,” Lyles

said. “I wanted to set this up to give everyone a heads up on what to expect and how to go about changing their preferred assignments if needed.” The class breaks down the basics of assignments for all Airmen to understand. This class was about an hour long and Lyles explained, in depth, many things in the assignments process. From 12 to 15 months prior to the date eligible for return from overseas date to getting the port call set up, everything was laid out. “This class was very informative,” said Airman 1st Class Teresa Poucher, 86th Airlift Wing knowledge operations manager. “Being a first-term Airman, I

wasn’t sure about a lot of things and this helped me get a better understanding of the assignments process.” Lyles talked about how joint-spouse assignments worked and clarified what the different intent codes mean for those types of assignments. She also touched on what retainability is and who is entitled to it. “I have got some awesome feedback from these two classes,” Lyles said. “I plan on keeping this going for years to come to help out my fellow Airmen.” Lyles is scheduled to brief the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing at a NCO professional development seminar, Dec. 19. She plans to hold the same briefing for different squadrons throughout the new year.

DOD prepares for potential sequestration by Senior Master Sgt. David Byron Air Force Public Affairs Agency WASHINGTON — The Office of Management and Budget has instructed the Department of Defense to pursue internal planning to meet required budget cuts if sequestration goes into effect Jan. 3. Sequestration is a mechanism enacted by Congress that will initiate severe across-the-government budget cuts if

Congress and the president are unable to pass a budget that meets the requirements of the Budget Control Act of 2011. For the DOD, sequestration would cut the defense budget by $500 billion over the next 10 years. These cuts would be in addition to the nearly $500 billion in cuts, during the same time frame, already directed by the 2011 BCA. DOD officials have already been considering possible effects of sequestra-

tion, including communicating impacts to the DOD work force. “Our focus has been on examining the potential impacts of sequestration,” said Dr. George Little, acting assistant secretary of defense for public affairs, during a Pentagon press availability, Dec. 5. “We know what the potential impacts might be, and that helps us create a baseline for what we need to plan against.” (For the full story, visit www.af.mil.)

after a year-long deployment. “From our notification, our Soldiers were trained and ready to deploy in four months,” said Col. Darren Werner, 16th Sust. Bde. commander. “We are proud to join the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines from over 25 different nations contributing to the NTM-A mission — the mission to support the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and generating and sustaining the Afghan National Security Force to develop its leaders and to establish an enduring institutional capacity to enable accountable Afghanled security.” Werner takes over as the deputy commander for the DCOM-SPO, NTM-A mission.

friends and comrades. “You have a new team member now who is equally committed to the same goals, and those are your goals,” said LeMasters as he addressed his Afghan partners in the audience. “I’ve seen great and many accomplishments in the short time I’ve been in Afghanistan. I ask you to continue that momen-

tum. The logistic support you provide enables your security forces to stand between your people and those who wish to destroy all that you have earned in many years of war.” Lt. Gen. Daniel P. Bolger, the commander of NTM-A and guest speaker at the ceremony, said goodbye to the Soldiers of the 13th ESC, praising them for their accom-

plishments over the past year. He also welcomed the 16th Sust. Bde. and expressed his confidence that it will continue the mission with great success. “Today the 16th Sustainment Brigade takes over,” Bolger said. “The 16th motto on their flag is, ‘Logistics: The key to win.’ You’ll see that key right on their unit insignia and it’s partnered with a battleaxe, because sometimes you have to kill some bad guys to get where you need to go. Since it formed, the 16th has both fought and sustained in campaign after campaign to include four deployments to Iraq, and now the 16th is here in Afghanistan. Your mission’s as straight forward as your motto; help the Afghans provide the key and win this thing. That’s why we’re here.” “Although we case the colors of the 13th Sustainment Command, and uncase the colors of the 16th Sustainment Brigade, this ceremony is not just about those two units,”

cient methods to complete the Nigerian air force mission. “We need to speak with people who have that experience so we can tap into that knowledge,” said Air Commodore Anthony John Alechenu Adagboyi, QRF regiment director. Using the knowledge of the Airmen who make up the 42 different career fields of the 435th CRG, the Nigerian counterparts received a better understanding of how to complete their day-to-day operations. “My team and I are trying to build the air force unit of the future. My main focus is to get our guys trained and ready,” Chiobi said. “There are many techniques that have been demonstrated for us over the last few days that I think will help. “My team learned how to evaluate needs for personnel and equipment; we saw the strengths of the Contingency Response Group and were not disappointed with what we saw,” Chiobi continued. “I had my personal expectations set very high and I’m happy to say they were met. I’m looking forward to continuing the relationship between our two nations.” said LeMasters during his closing speech. “It’s about the incredible teamwork of the entire DCOM-SPO. It is not just about these Soldiers who stand here today representing these two units. It’s about many nations, many people coming together for a common purpose. And although we wear different uniforms, we work together to accomplish the NTM-A mission every single day.”

773rd CST demonstrates capabilities at open house Story and photo by Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Chlosta 7th CSC Public Affairs Office, 21st TSC

T

he 7th Civil Support Command’s 773rd Civil Support Team held its second annual open house demonstration partnership building event, Dec. 7, despite the snow and inclement weather. The intent of this event is to “demonstrate the unit’s capabilities, build partnerships and plan future chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear training opportunities,” said Capt. Hubert Little III, event coordinator of the 773rd CST. We will showcase the relationships we have established with the Belgium province of Zaventem and the U.S. Army Garrison Kaiserslautern fire departments, Little added. More than 30 visitors, including Germans, Polish soldiers, Belgian firefighters and members of the U.S. Air Force and Army attended the event, which included a tour of the 773rd CST’s equipment and vehicles. “It was awesome,” said Senior Airman Steven Chamble, 886th Civilian Engineer Squadron. “We definitely need to step up our game.” After the tour the group visited the

learn from us as well, and we learn from them, and that way we both improve.” After Vandermissen’s speech, the 773rd CST survey and analytical sections were highlighted during an observable clandestine laboratory

scenario exercise. “I think it went fairly well,” said Sgt. 1st Class Clifton Dockery, communications noncommissioned officer in charge, 773rd CST. “I was surprised by the turnout, especially with the weather.”

Sgt. Morales Club helping improve community, Soldiers Story and photo by Staff Sgt. John Zumer 10th AAMDC Public Affairs Soldiers helping other Soldiers reach their potential is a time-honored military tradition. The small but growing chapter of the Kaiserslautern Sergeant Morales Club, however, prides itself on taking that dedication to fellow comrades one giant step further. The club, named after a fictional noncommissioned officer who represents the ideals of soldierly competence, integrity and professionalism, is open to all NCOs in the Kaiserslautern and surrounding military communities. Its main purpose is to help Soldiers personify the highest caliber of Army leadership, which requires an NCO to always lead by example. “A Sergeant Morales member is an NCO who knows how to lead a Soldier. He’s educated, physically fit, and stands out above his peers,” said Sgt. 1st Class Jesus Arellano, the launcher platoon sergeant with Charlie Battery, 5th Battalion, 7th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 10th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, and the vice president of the club. The majority of club members belong to units associated with the Kaiserslautern-based 10th AAMDC, and the organization prides itself on

playing an active part in the community. Being an entirely self-funded organization, various community projects often help to provide the resources needed to assist with Soldier mentoring and other outreach efforts. Recently, the club jumped at the chance to not only spread the word about the club, but to share some yuletide greetings. Knowing the last thing on the minds of many people is to wrap presents after an exhausting day of shopping, the club offered its gift wrapping services to the masses at the Kaiserslautern

Military Community Center. Donations were happily accepted, and will be used to fund upcoming events and professional development. “We wanted to make sure we provided a free service to the community,” said Staff Sgt. Angela Rotondo, the chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear noncommissioned officer for 5-7 ADA. She also doubles as the club president, and cited her primary reasons for being involved were the volunteer opportunities and getting to be a part of “exceptional NCO leadership.” Other community projects underway include a food and toy drive for those less fortunate in the KMC. The SMC meets the first working Monday of each month, U.S. Army Europe holidays excluded, at Kleber Kaserne. All interested NCOs are welcome to join and may contact any member or officer for more information. Starting in January, study groups will be held offering prospective members the chance to brush up on subjects like weapons and leadership that may surface among Sergeant Morales board questions. Another highlight for the club in 2013 will be the opportunity to host the USAREUR conference of SMC chapters in early April. A Facebook website is presently under construction. For questions regarding membership or other matters, email sergeantmoralesclub@gmail.com.

Members of the Otterberg Flying Squirrels sing holiday music during their performance Dec. 6 at the Christmas market in Kaiserslautern.

Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Trevor Rhynes 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs Christmas markets can be found throughout Germany and host various food and beverage vendors while providing festive entertainment. The local market in downtown Kaiserslautern is no exception. The German-American Community Office kicked off the festivities Dec. 6 with songs from American and German choirs and bands. One can see, smell, taste and simply experience different things no matter what area of the markets they are in. Glühwein or Glühbeer, a hot, spiced wine or beer, potato soup and crepes make up popu-

lar beverages and foods that can be found during the markets. “We provide entertainment on the first Thursday of December,” said Michael Gannon, event coordinator from GACO. “These events help build relationships within the community. The performance groups here are filled with American and German heritage.” Despite some language and cultural barriers, everyone enjoyed the festive music. “Music is the universal language, it doesn’t matter what language you speak,” said Paula Parks, member of the Vogelweh Gospel Choir. It’s easy to hear a tune and know the music without understanding any of the words.”

Members of the audience were treated to a mix of English, German and other songs as the choir sang holiday songs in various languages. “The singing group is made up of more than 40 members of the German and American community,” said Patrick Casey, member of the RheinlandPfalz International Choir. “We try to sing pieces in English as well as German and other languages on occasion. It’s a wonderful way to exchange cultures with our counterparts.” The GACO office that organized the event is located in downtown Kaiserslautern and is here to help Americans become used to the German customs. For more information contact the GACO at www.gaco-kl.de.

Countdown to Christmas: 11 days T

is the season of giving! Everyone knows Christmas is the time of year when we invest a lot of our time, energy and resources in giving to loved ones. It is important to many of us to take time during the holiday season to recognize those individuals who mean a lot to

us, but it is also important to remember that it is possible to keep the spirit of giving without spending a lot of money. Let your loved ones know you care about them by giving yourself and your time. Our daily schedules are so packed with activities that free time is a precious commodity. Show how much you care through

thoughtful actions rather than expensive gifts. One way to give of yourself is in making coupon books or gift certificates to perform various chores. You can also make coupons for simple expressions of affection such as hugs or reading a book together. Another winner when it

comes to gifts from the heart is a hand-written letter expressing what we appreciate and treasure about the recipient or even a series of notes or messages. If you have a hard time being creative, borrow a phrase or two from a greeting card. Deliver the note with a batch of freshly baked cookies to make someone feel

loved and special, which is what really matters when it is all said and done. If you would like more information on budgeting for this holiday season, call the Ramstein Airman & Family Readiness Center at 480-5100 or 06371-47-5100. (Courtesy of 86th Force Support Squadron)

Watch out: Pickpockets like Christmas markets

D

uring Advent season, most people enjoy a visit to a Christmas market. Pickpockets do the same. The criminal statistics by Polizei shows a total of 120,790 cases of pickpocketing in 2011, which is a raise of 16 percent compared to 2010 (104,145 cases). “Especially in the narrow alleys between booths and in front of stands, it’s very packed,” said Prof. Dr. Wolf Hartmann, chief of the Police Criminal Prevention of the federal states and the federal government. “It’s easy for thieves to reach for valuables. Within seconds wallets, credit cards and (cell phones) will disappear.” Pickpockets usually work in groups. One distracts the victim, while another one reaches for the valuables and passes them on to a third person, who then disappears in the crowd. If they don’t get caught in the act, they are difficult to find, especially since victims don’t notice the loss until later. Pickpockets observe their possible victims for quite a while. They bump into them, ask

flimsy questions, offer their help or smutch their clothes to get into contact. Thieves approach victims from the back, push them until they turn around and thus present their purses or wallets in coat pockets. Pickpockets can get recognized by their searching look. They avoid direct eye contact with the victim and rather look for the haul. To avoid getting pickpocketed, follow these tips: » Only take as much as you actually need. » Carry money, credit cards and ID cards in various closed inside pockets of your clothes, close to the body. » Carry purses with the closing side (zipper) to the body. » Watch your valuables in crowds. Be suspicious if you suddenly get pushed or two people sandwich you. » Never keep your PIN in your wallet. » If you lose a credit or bank card, get them locked.

Seasonal adventures with Outdoor Recreation by Senior Airman Caitlin O’Neil-McKeown 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

T

he 86th Force Support Squadron’s Outdoor Recreation is providing some outstanding travel and adventuring opportunities in December and January. “We offer these trips as a service to the military community at large,” said Nicholas Erhardt, outdoor recreation assistant. “It’s a healthy way to release some energy, explore Europe, and try something new. Besides, if we weren’t taking folks out on rock climbing, skiing, and hiking trips, we would be out there rock climbing, skiing or hiking!” A few upcoming events include family trips, Christmas and New Year’s outings as well as a variety of day trips. A casual outing for all ages, Erbeskopf is a family and beginner friendly area and a perfect place for first time skiers and snowboarders or for anyone who is preparing for big ski adventures later this season. The $49 ticket provides transportation and the optional ski and snowboard rental. The Erbeskopf Ski day trip will be Saturday. It will also be hosted twice more in January for those who missed it. Looking for a Christmas getaway? The big hit this season is the Austria Ski Trip. From Dec. 21 to 26, this trip will give you the opportunity to hit the slopes in a big way. This Christmas ski trip will be visiting Landeck, Austria, placing you close to top rated ski resorts and a variety of great res-

taurants and activities. The ticket price of $349 includes accommodation, rentals, transportation, two breakfasts and a guide. “I can’t wait for trip to Landeck, Austria. Landeck is getting a ton of snow right now, so the conditions should be perfect,” Erhardt said. “We’re booked into an amazing Tyrolean style hut. And there are about a dozen ski areas within 30 minutes that offer everything from beginner to advanced expert terrain. Sounds like a recipe for a sweet ski trip over the holidays.” Celebrating the new year? Join Ramstein Outdoor Rec as they kick off this year’s January Winter Adventure Week with a trip to Garmisch for a week in the Alpines. Held Jan. 20 to 27, this trip will provide seven nights accommodation, along with package rentals for all your snow adventures. If you’re looking for a day trip to experience the holiday season, outdoor recreation provides a variety of day trips to local Christmas markets every Saturday in the month of December, the events paired with a hike provide you the opportunity to see local culture as well as to experience local views of the land. “These events are all about getting out there and enjoying what you’re doing,” said Dennis Alexander, recreational assistant. “These events fill up fast, so I would recommend signing up as early as possible.” For more information on tickets or travel requirements, visit the Ramstein Outdoor Recreation in the Kaiserslautern Military Community Center or contact them at 4805707 or 06371-47-5707.

Finance opens doors to advance pay by Staff Sgt. Travis Edwards 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

I

n effort to better serve the Airmen at Ramstein, the 86th Comptroller Squadron has opened its doors to only those who need to drop off advance paperwork. The hours to drop off advance paperwork only are from 9 to 11 a.m. Mondays through Fridays on normal workdays. “We recognize the need to process advances for overseas housing allowance and security deposits as soon as possible,” said 2nd Lt. Adrianna Perez, 86th CPTS financial services flight commander. “This is just another avenue for our Airmen to utilize.” Customers still have the option to send an email to customer service at 86cpts.cs@ramstein. af.mil. The 86th CPTS suggests putting the word “Advance” in the subject line to be easily identified for quicker action. Three types of advances will be accepted during the walk-in hours: advance dislocation allowance (have a copy of PCS orders and a port call date), military pay (have DD Courtesy graphic 2560 and a copy of PCS orders) and advance housing allowance (have the AF 1039, front and back, and a copy of PCS orders). “With these measures in place, we hope to alleviate the time between when Airmen submit their paperwork and when they get paid, and ease some of the stress of getting settled in Ramstein,” Perez said. For questions about what finance can do for you, visit www.ramstein.af.mil/library/factsheets/factsheet.asp?id=17070. Those who need to pay back previous advances can still do so from 9 to 11 a.m. Mondays through Fridays.

New process improves household goods shipments by Donna Miles American Forces Press Service SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. — A system being implemented at U.S. Transportation Command is making permanent-change-of-station moves more convenient, while reducing lost and damaged shipments and saving the government money. The Defense Personal Property System, introduced in 2009 as a pilot program at 17 installations, now supports 90 percent of all military moves, said Jill Smith, personal property division chief at Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command. The web-based system automates many of the steps involved in military moves: pre-move counseling, sched-

uling, tracking, invoicing and claims filing for household goods shipments. “The beauty of DPS is that customers can do all this from the comfort of their own homes. They can do it early in the morning or at 11 o’clock at night, whatever works best for them,” Smith said. “Plus, all the information they might want, whether it’s about gypsy moths or weight allowances, or just tips about how they can have a smoother move, is right at their fingertips, a click away, and available 24/7.” DPS also gives customers the opportunity to track their shipments online. If their shipment is lost or damaged, they can file a claim online and settle directly with the moving company. Moves not yet covered by DPS, generally those involving long-term

storage or moves within an overseas theater, will be included as new features are added to make the system fully operational by September 2017, Smith said. Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, Transcom’s Army component, processes about 600,000 personal property moves each year for Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, Defense Department civilian employees and their families, Smith reported. About one-third of these moves take place during the summer, and almost 70,000 include privately-owned vehicle shipments. Collectively, they cost the Defense Department about $2.2 billion a year, Smith said. But with DPS, she projects between $117 million and $136

million in annual savings, while providing customers with better service. That’s because rather than relying on “low-bid” transportation providers to conduct military moves, DPS provides “best value” services. This, Smith explained, factors in not just cost, but also variables such as timeliness, reliability, the incidence of lost or damaged shipments and ease in providing reimbursement for claims. “We want to provide carriers that are not only qualified, but fully capable of making sure that they protect the members’ household goods, provide a great quality move and communicate with that customer,” she said.

RMS students celebrate AVID contract signing by Donald Seltzer Ramstein Middle School Students and their parents came together Nov. 26 at Ramstein Middle School for a special event — the Advancement Via Individual Determination contract signing and student celebration. These sixth, seventh and eighth grade students passed an interview process and were selected for the AVID program. As part of the program, students are required to sign a contract committing them to a rigorous course of study. Further motivating the new AVID enrollees, their parents also signed the contract which prompted a few jokes about something they signed long ago at the recruiter’s office. “We were quite pleased with the very large turnout at this event because it underscores how the involvement of both student and parent leads to the successful completion of the program,” said Jonathan Petrick, AVID site coordinator Sequinn Lee, the sixth grade AVID elective teacher, said the students were the stars of the evening. She said she heard many positive comments from parents as they enjoyed cake and punch following the signing ceremony. More than 80 students at RMS — about 10 percent of the school’s enrollment — are involved in the AVID program, which helps students showing high academic potential prepare for college.

Sidewalks must be clean of snow, ice by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

G

erman communities have rules that oblige house owners to keep sidewalks free of ice and snow. Renters living offbase should check their rental contracts to find out about their obligations. Usually house owners turn over this obligation to their renters. As soon as there is a danger of black ice, renters or landlords must throw salt, sand or gravel on walkways. Snow must be swept off so pedestrians can walk. NOTE: In some communities it is not allowed to use salt because it can damage the environment and cause sidewalk tiles to become loose. House owners or renters don’t have to free the whole sidewalk of ice and snow, but to an extent so two people can get by. They don’t have to sweep snow if it continues snowing, but must remove it about 15 to 30 minutes after it stops snowing. The snow has to be swept in a way that it does not impact traffic. In most communities, sweeping snow and throwing salt, sand or gravel must be done between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on workdays. On weekends, the snow removal obligation starts at 9 a.m. The general rule is:

first sweep the snow then throw salt, sand or gravel. In extreme weather, even throughout the day, the cleaning procedures must be repeated. If renters are, according to their contract, obliged to take care of cleaning their sidewalks, they must find somebody to do it for them if they won’t be able to because of

sickness or work. If pedestrians get hurt due to sidewalks that were not properly cleaned, house owners or renters can be held liable. They might have to pay the medical treatment, compensations and sometimes even a fine.

Christmas: a jolly worldwide experience by Meghan Augsburger Ramstein High School intern Christmas is celebrated in many diverse and unique ways around the world. Gerry Bowler’s “World Encyclopedia of Christmas” provides insight on various traditions, ranging from bathtub carp in the Czech Republic to Christmas theme parks in China.

Czech Republic

The Czech holiday season begins with the arrival of St. Nicholas, known as Mikulaç, and his angel and devil assistants. The angel distributes treats to good children while the devil delivers lumps of coal to bad children. With the arrival of Advent comes cleaning and preparations for the Christmas Eve meal. Traditionally, this meal consists of deep-fried carp, dumplings and plenty of delicious desserts. Carp feed off of the bottom of lakes, giving them a muddy taste. In the Czech Republic, carp are transferred live to fresh water tanks to rid them of the mud. Families often purchase them off of the streets and keep them fresh by allowing them to swim in their bathtubs. Parents decorate the tree on Christmas Eve with real candles and gingerbread. Once dinner ends, the

decorated tree and gifts are revealed to the children. Midnight Mass is then attended. On Dec. 25, “Big Christmas,” and Dec. 26, “Little Christmas,” families attend concerts, go skating or take skiing holidays.

Bahamas

Christmas in the Caribbean takes on a more festive theme with the Junkanoo custom. On Dec. 26, known as Boxing Day, performers dress in gaudy costumes and dance in the streets at 2 a.m. in order to win prize money. This carnival-like celebration stems from the colonial tradition of allowing slaves to participate in Christmas festivities. Aside from the colorful parade, businesses stay open for tourists as the locals enjoy the delicious seafood and celebrations.

Ethiopia

Following the Coptic calendar, Ethiopians observe Christmas on Jan. 7 after fasting for more than 40 days. Standing through a three-hour Mass is customary before spending the night praying, singing and dancing. On Christmas morning, thousands of pilgrims in Lalibela, the spiritual capital, form a procession to haul the Ark of the Covenant to a nearby hill.

A service is held before feasting on injera and doro wat, a type of flat bread and chicken stew. Boys then play a traditional type of Christmas hockey called genna. Christmas in Ethiopia has remained relatively unchanged; however, foreign traditions such as gifts for children and Christmas trees have slowly crept in. In the cities, the government protects the juniper trees; locals continuously chop them down, leading to their extinction.

China

Though only a few million Chinese are Christian, Christmas and Santa Claus, known as “Old Man Christmas,” or Dun Che Lao Ren, have become increasingly popular. The upper class exchanges Christmas cards, participates in gift giving, and throws elaborate parties to impress friends. In fact, the Chinese population is so infatuated with the holiday, they built the “Clear Moon Lake Santa Claus Paradise,” a Christmas themed attraction park. Popularity of the Christmas season has sky rocketed due to the growing obsession with Western culture and holidays. The Chinese government, however, is skeptical of Christmas due to its staunch atheist ideology.

Australia

Christmas falls during the simmering Australian summer, making it a unique and hot holiday experience. In many ways, Christmas in Australia mirrors that of the British; parents buy gifts for their children, schools throw pageants, and families feast on traditional plum pudding and turkey. On Christmas Eve, many towns and cities hold “Carols by Candlelight,” a gigantic gathering of carolers, which is broadcasted on television. However, some have combined British, European and indigenous traditions to make a unique Australian Christmas. Many eat a cold lunch or barbecue their meals at the beach on Christmas Day. Another strictly Australian tradition is the hanging of Christmas pillowslips on the end of the bed for Father Christmas to fill after entering through the window. Children often leave cookies, milk or even beer for him, as well as water for his sleigh-pulling kangaroos. Families decorate their houses with indigenous plants such as the Christmas bush, a red-flowered bush that only grows during the holiday season. Clusters of yellow flowers also grow on the Australian Christmas tree, which can reach 20 to 30 feet.

Christmas item production started in 17th century by Petra Lessoing 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

A

ll over German Christmas markets, shoppers will find unique wooden items such as nutcrackers, Christmas pyramids, angels and other figures. The origin of these holiday items dates back to the 17th century in the Erzgebirge, a mountain area near the Czech border. After ore became scarce, many miners were forced to find work elsewhere, so they began turning everyday items into little toy figures for their children, which eventually led to an entire new industry.

Shining a light on ‘SAD’ by Airman 1st Class Hailey Haux 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs

What are some thoughts that go through your mind when you think about the winter months? As it gets darker and colder, some people tend to get a little sadder than in the bright, sunny days. “Seasonal affective disorder is a variant of major depressive disorder where the depressive episodes show up seasonally,” said Maj. Donald Christman, mental health flight commander. “The symptoms of SAD are typically depressed mood, changes in sleep and appetite, low energy and feelings of guilt.” There are two types of SAD: a fall on-set and a spring on-set. “The fall on-set is more common,” Christman said. “With increased sleep, weight gain and irritability, it’s a lot like a bear going into hibernation.” He said the less common is the spring on-set, where a person would be more likely to have insomnia and decreased appetite. “We have approximately eight hours of daylight during the winter months,” said Staff Sgt. John Deehan, 86th Operational Weather Squadron weather forecaster. “We lose about two minutes of daylight a day until Dec. 21, when the process reverses.” With the days getting darker as we come into the

winter months, there are some things that can be done to help with SAD. “There are many ways a person can try to prevent SAD,” Christman said. “Increasing their exposure to sunlight, with the help of a light box or other bright lights can be a big help. Get out of the office and take a walk during the daylight hours around the base.” There is a light box available at the Health and Wellness Center for Airmen to use as needed. SAD is more common in women, those in their late teens to early 20s and military members who have a permanent change of station to areas with less sunlight, said the mental health flight commander. “A strong social network is key to helping someone with depression in general,” Christman said. “Having people who know when you are not yourself, not only during the winter months, but all year.” If a fellow Airman is experiencing any of the symptoms of SAD or depression in general there are many places they can go to get help. “The family health clinic, the mental health flight, your primary care doctor, the chaplain and military and family life consultants are all there to help,” Christman said. “The best thing a person can do is be aware and educated about SAD and get help if needed.”
