KMC receives COLA decrease by Senior Airman Jonathan Stefanko 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


ervice members in the KMC will notice a pay decrease effective March 16 based on the results of a recent cost of living allowance survey and Retail Price Schedule study. The COLA index for all KMC members will decline by two points; however, the COLA decrease will vary from person to person based on individual categories, resulting in less pay for KMC members.

“There are many factors that go into how much COLA an individual receives,” said Senior Airman Richard Narvaez, 86th CPTS financial service journeyman. “The pay difference will depend on time in service, number of dependents, marital status and so on. It won’t be the same for everyone.” The RPS study and COLA survey are conducted annually to adjust COLA values based on the cost of living in the area. “The RPS is used to compare the price of goods and services overseas with the average prices for equivalent goods and services in the U.S.,” said Master Sgt. Kevin Hazen, 86th Comptroller

Squadron chief of customer service. “The result of this comparison is an index that reflects a cost of living.” The exchange rate is also a determining factor in how COLA fluctuates. “COLA will constantly change since it will adjust to how well the U.S. dollar is doing compared to the euro,” Narvaez said. “It’s best to understand the types of services that banks offer that will most closely match the current exchanges.” For more information on COLA, visit www. defensetravel.dod.mil/site/colaCalc.cfm or contact your base finance office.

Military Saves Week: Commit yourself to saving money and organizing your finances.


Tip of the Week


Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente, 86th Airlift Wing commander, signs a Military Saves Week proclamation Feb. 13 on Ramstein as Chief Master Sgt. Frank Batten III, 86th AW command chief, looks on. Military Saves, a component of the nonprofit America Saves and a partner in the Department of Defense’s Financial Readiness Campaign, seeks to motivate, support and encourage military families to save money, reduce debt and build wealth. The proclamation declares Feb. 23 to 27 as Military Saves Week, encouraging service members to set financial goals.

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIORANDOLPH, Texas — Effective Sept. 30, military members will no longer be able to carry more than 60 days of leave into the next fiscal year, in accordance with 2013 National Defense Authorization Act requirements. Unless they are approved for special leave accrual, regular Air Force and Active Guard Reserve, or AGR, members who have more than 60 days of leave must use it or lose it by Oct. 1, 2015. The 2010 NDAA included a provision that allowed members to carry up to 75 days of leave forward to the new fiscal year because of limited leave opportunities tied to deployments and other mission requirements.

An open letter to my Airmen — AGOW style COMMENTARY

by Col. Christopher Barnett 435th Air Ground Operations Wing


hen I came on board 20 months ago, it did not take long for me to realize the Air Ground Operations Wing, and then subsequently the Air Expeditionary Wing, are like no other wings I have ever been associated with. The AGOW has over 1,200 Airmen from 81 career fields spread across three continents, which are unbelievably effective at executing our five mission areas: expeditionary airfields on demand, joint airpower integration, multitheater operational support and sustainment, premier specialty training, and building partnership capacity. In Africa, we have over 900 deployed Airmen employing expeditionary airpower and ensuring

access through base operation support-integrator; personnel recovery; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; and remotely piloted aircraft operations. Last year had no shortage of surprises. The crisis with Russian separatists in Ukraine and the Ebola outbreak in Africa were unexpected challenges, and our two wings were tasked for both events. This is despite the fact that AGOW was already performing over 130 operations in 54 countries, training over 3,000 security forces, civil engineering, services and personnel Airmen, while supporting over 100 exercises around the area of responsiblity. It was a busy year, to say the least, and you collectively rose to the challenge and surpassed all expectations. We live in an age of fiscal constraint; however, it is also an age of opportunity. Our Airmen are smarter than ever, and their expertise and

creativity are what keeps the mission going. Airmen like Tech. Sgt. Robert Grotefend was a crucial member of the 435th AMS team that created the Landing Zone Program. This program generated 10 certified LZ surveyors and eight certified LZ operators, giving U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa its first organic capability to perform these functions — all with a zero manpower cost to the command and savings on the order of $25,000 per survey. Senior Airman Jose Torres engineered a do-it-yourself solution to drainage issues we were having at one of our sites in Africa. Thanks to his out-of-the-box thinking and fabrication skills, the site now has working washers and dryers — a huge quality of life win for folks living in austere conditions. Family is the foundation of our success. We have a great Air Force

family, but I have to highlight our spouses and children, who forfeit so much of their wants and needs for us. I cannot overstate how much they do for us behind the scenes to help make the mission go. Our 2014 Key Spouse of the Year, Alicia Barnett (no relation), led the “Books for Africa” project, which provided books and journals to an Ethiopian village. That, just as much as the missions our air advisers execute, builds partnership capacity. As we continue through 2015, there is no doubt that our AORs will continue to have strategic importance to the United States and its allies. So, here is my challenge to you. Stay light. Stay lethal. Continue to execute the mission with the excellence that only you can, but remember to take care of yourselves, your peers and your families. I am humbled to be associated with you, and I cannot wait to see all of your future successes.

Carter takes office as 25th defense secretary by Cheryl Pellerin Department of Defense News, Defense Media Activity WASHINGTON — Ash Carter became the 25th secretary of defense Feb. 17 after having served previously as deputy defense secretary, defense acquisition chief and assistant secretary for global strategic affairs. President Barack Obama nominated Carter for the position, calling Carter an innovator and a reformer who knows the Defense Department inside and out. “On Day One, he’s going to hit the ground running,” the president said. At his Feb. 4 Senate Armed Services

Committee confirmation hearing, Carter described the work that lies ahead for him and the department. “I think we are in a time where the number and severity of risks is something I’ve not seen before in my life,” he told the Senate panel. For Carter, the job will include dealing with coalition responsibilities in Afghanistan and Iraq, and what he described as “the malignant and savage terrorism” emanating from turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa. He’ll also take on what has become a reversion to what he’s called oldstyle security thinking in parts of Europe, long-standing tensions and

rapid changes in Asia, a continuing imperative to counter the spread of weapons of mass destruction, and dangers in new domains such as cyber. Carter’s own expertise, experience, travels and interests in defense and national security have prepared him precisely to deal with these challenges and more. As former Sen. Joe Lieberman said in introductory remarks during Carter’s hearing, “It would really be hard to find someone to serve as secretary of defense who combines as much practical Pentagon experience with so deep a background in national security policy as Ash Carter.”

NDAA extended that provision through the end of fiscal year 2015. “Airmen need to be aware of the change so that they can plan leave accordingly and ensure their leave balance is 60 days or fewer by the end of the fiscal year,” said 1st Lt. Nate Strickland, Air Force Personnel Center special programs branch chief. “Even if you don’t have more

Kaiserslautern American than 60 days now, by Sept. 30, you may accrue enough leave time to be over the limit.” Some Reserve members could be affected as well, said Lt. Col. Belinda Petersen, Air Reserve Personnel Center public affairs. “All Reserve members accrue leave when they are on active-duty orders for 30 days or longer, and Active Guard Reserve members accrue leave the same way regular Air Force members do, so the extension

expiration will affect them,” she said. “If you aren’t sure whether or not you’re affected, you should talk to your supervisor, or contact your military personnel section for information.” Members who have approved special leave accrual are exempted from the use-or-lose rule, Strickland said. Special leave accrual approval is for members who couldn’t use their leave

Page 3 because of a national emergency, crisis, catastrophe or national security situations. “SLA is only granted when Airmen cannot take leave under those circumstances,” the lieutenant said.

Air Force retirees who do not have a myPers account can find instructions to create an account at www.

retirees.af.mil/shared/media/ document/AFD-120510-068. pdf. Editor’s note: SLA will automatically start for members deployed to a HFP/IDP area for a continuous period of at least 120 days. For other situations (i.e., catastrophe, national emergency or crisis or operations in defense of national security), it must be approved by the wing commander.

Airmen earn 1,671 college credits during CLEP-a-thon Story and photos by Senior Airman Damon Kasberg 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


ust as people gather to begin the first steps of a marathon, hundreds of Airmen from Ramstein Air Base flocked to the National Testing Center to earn 1,671 college credits during the CLEP-a-thon Feb. 9 to 13. The weeklong event gave Airmen the opportunity to test for college credits that go toward their Community College of the Air Force degree or any upper-level degree an individual might be working on. “I had never taken a CLEP before this week, and now I’ve completed 28 college credits,” said Airman 1st Class Jasmine Hunt, 693rd Intelligence Support Squadron cyber system operator. In order to earn their CCAF degree, Airmen must complete 64 credit hours. Although the journey may seem long to some, the CLEP-a-thon allowed Airmen to complete as many credit hours as they wanted and helped Airmen sprint to their CCAF goal instead of slowly strolling. College Level Examination Programs and DANTES Subject Standardized Tests are based on the premise that some individuals enrolling in college have already learned part of what is taught there. These programs allow individuals to demonstrate their college level learning by taking examinations that assess the knowledge and skills taught in college courses. “By taking and passing a CLEP or DSST exam, students can earn their degree much faster,” said Michael Jones, 86th Force Support Squadron education services specialist. “A great example of this is Airman Hunt. During this last CLEP-a-thon, she earned over 25 college credits. This is just about the equivalent of one year of college, and she did it in one week.” To add a little competitive edge to the CLEP-athon, the Ramstein Education Office had Airmen write their name on a bulletin board every time they passed a test to see which squadron could have the

Airmen wait their turn to test during a CLEP-a-thon Feb. 13 on Ramstein. The weeklong event held by the education center gave Airmen the opportunity to take CLEPs and DSSTs on the spot with more than 700 tests being completed and 1,671 college credits earned. The credits earned go toward the individual’s Community College of the Air Force degree or any upper-level degree they may be working toward with the convenience of not having to schedule test dates weeks in advance.

most Airmen earn credits. After five days of testing, the results are in. The 86th Security Forces Squadron had the most Airmen participate, and they passed a total of 40 tests. “There were more than 700 tests given throughout the week, and it was great seeing so many people participate,” Jones said. “While the CLEPa-thon may be over, anyone can still sign up to take a test. As long as they are command-sponsored, it does not matter what branch of military they fall under.” Though the CLEP-a-thon has ended, unlike a marathon, the race to seek knowledge and better oneself never ends. Airmen are still able to schedule test dates for any course they wish to earn credits for by contacting their on-base education center.

Names of Airmen who’ve successfully passed a test during a CLEP-a-thon hang on a board Feb. 13 on Ramstein.

Outside in blustery, cold wind and freezing temperatures, Army North conducted a Training Proficiency External Evaluation of the 7th Civil Support Command’s 773rd Civil Support Team’s unit readiness to respond to a real-world Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear event, Feb. 2 to 12. The scenario evaluated on Feb. 6 involved possible criminal activity and radioactive material. “We are being evaluated on our ability to react to an incident,” said Staff Sgt. Shawn McKenna, site survey team leader with the 773rd

CST. “It would be weapons of mass destruction or a chemical spill. “We will determine the radioactive material source and identification,” McKenna continued. “We will use our detection equipment to locate and ID the radioactive isotope.” Capt. Jon Underberg, survey team leader, 773rd CST, gave an initial mission brief before the team launched their site survey mission. ARNORTH evaluates the 773rd every 12 to 18 months, he said. “They’re doing an external evaluation,” Underberg said. “They are here to validate our unit for real-world CBRN missions.” Underberg’s initial brief included a See evaluation, Page 10

Eight chaplains, one team: Kaiserslautern’s Chapel Next by Christian Führer Chapel Next volunteer In 1996, two Protestant chaplains at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, developed a novel form of contemporary Protestant worship. Their idea was to put more emphasis on the needs of young military families and to provide a Christ-centered spiritual experience in a come-asyou-are worship atmosphere. Barely four years later, the new concept became known as Chapel Next, a designation it retains to this day. In the summer of 2012, a Chapel Next service was initiated at Kaiserslautern’s Daenner Chapel by Chaplain (Col.) Marc A. Gauthier, who at that time served as the 21st Theater Sustainment Command command chaplain at nearby Panzer Kaserne. The new service soon attracted people from all walks of contemporary Protestant life in the KMC. Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Douglas L. Prentice, 21st TSC deputy command chaplain and current senior pastor of Chapel Next at Daenner Chapel, said the service focuses on “connecting with God, connecting with each other and connecting others with God. Many people in today’s military look for authenticity in faith, for a house of worship where they can meet fellow believ-

ers and experience Christ’s unconditional love in a casual atmosphere.” Isaac S. Smith, a long-time Kaiserslautern resident who has been attending Protestant services at Daenner Chapel for many years, added, “Once the new service had started, the congregation began to grow with people coming from all over the community. It is encouraging to see people from many different backgrounds coming together for prayer and worship.” No fewer than eight chaplains from U.S. Army Garrison Rheinland-Pfalz units are part of Chapel Next’s pastoral team with each chaplain holding responsibility for a particular activity. While most of these chaplains “were raised in different Protestant traditions, they build on the common platform of the Chapel Next worship concept and thus form a genuine team,” said Chaplain (Capt.) Joshua H. Kim, Special Troops Battalion, 21st TSC. Chaplain (Lt. Col.) Douglas C. Swift, U.S. Army NATO, who is also part of Chapel Next’s pastoral team, said, “Chaplains take turns preaching on Sundays, but all agree on the fundamentals that define Chapel Next: down-to-earth, scripturebased, authentic preaching that imparts a key message.” Chapel Next offers a wide

range of activities in which to get involved. Apart from small group gatherings, breakfast fellowships, a fellowship meal on the first Sunday of the month, children’s church during worship services, and a vibrant contemporary music and worship ministry, Chapel Next encourages members to join community-wide Christian activities, such as Club Beyond, Protestant Men of the Chapel and Protestant Women of the Chapel.

From time to time, Chapel Next members support outreach projects sponsored by other organizations in the community. “Last fall, we volunteered with the Kaiserslautern Kindergraves Memorial Foundation to clean up the graves of American military children buried on Kaiserslautern’s main cemetery between 1952 and 1971,” said Mary Migala, Chapel Next parish and religious

education coordinator. “It was a wonderful activity that brought together more than 20 members of our congregation and a great outreach opportunity that helped us minister to other parts of the community.” Chapel Next services begin at 10 a.m. every Sunday, and child care is provided. More information on the Chapel Next program at Daenner Chapel can be found at www.facebook.com/ chapelnextdaenner.

Passenger terminal connects Airmen around globe Story and photo by Airman 1st Class Michael Stuart 86th Airlift Wing Public Affairs


ransportation to a service member’s next duty location is an important part of one’s career. Without aerial port squadrons around the world, Airmen would have a harder time getting to their bases, especially if that base is overseas. The 721st Aerial Port Squadron, operating out of Ramstein Air Base, is a hub for air travel throughout Europe and is one of the largest aerial ports in the military. “The 721st APS provides freight, passenger and fleet services to all aircraft transiting in and out of Ramstein,” said Master Sgt. Darlene Clement, 721st APS Passenger Services Operations NCO in charge. “We get around 13,000 passengers that fly through this terminal during the slower months and just above 20,000 during the busier months.” Flights to and from Ramstein not only include service members who are permanently changing duty stations, but they also offer space available flights for Department of Defense ID cardholders who travel for leisure. The Space-A flights are a service the terminal offers, but there are requirements that must be met in order to use this service. “If you have a DOD ID card, it’s in your best interest to come to

If you come in and ask us 100 questions, we will give you 100 answers.” Many of the passengers who fly Space-A are command-sponsored dependents or active-duty service members on leave; however, there are other people who can fly under different circumstances, such as non-appropriated fund employees under emergency conditions. “I’ve had a lot of customer service-oriented jobs in my life and working here has made me realize that I love working with people,” said Airman 1st Class Judge Wright, 721st APS Passenger Services agent. “It’s easy to think you’re just putting people on

vacation, but if you really take a second to think about it, the people you’re getting home might have been deployed and just want to see their families. Being able to be a part of that makes my job rewarding.” In addition to transporting service members and their families, the terminal personnel have their hands on other important missions. “We have missions ranging from presidential to special operations,” Wright said. “We pretty much have our hands in everything; that’s the cool part of our job.” Whether it’s sending people off to complete the mission, getting troops home or having the president pass through, the job of the 721st APS is to take care of customers.

he 86th Civil Engineer Group hosted a training day Feb. 12 with its engineering technicians and explosive ordnance disposal Airmen teaching a core task to fellow comrades who are qualified in other CE skill sets. Training days, or Prime BEEF days, allow Airmen to hone and develop their skills in different areas. During this day, the engineering technicians and EOD shared the knowledge they use every day on reading maps and compasses to teach land navigation to more than 190 Airmen across career fields. “I am glad I could use my everyday skills to help out my CE brothers,” said Senior Airman Raymond Cage, 86th Civil Engineer Squadron training instructor. “I know that maybe the next Prime BEEF day anyone else in CE could be teaching me something, so I am doing my best to show them what I know.” Land navigation is a task all civil engineer Airmen are required to understand and perform. One of the reasons is because, at any time, technology may fail them. “With 12 AFSCs, we find ourselves spread out throughout the world,” said Tech. Sgt. Samuel Lewis, 786th Civil Engineer Squadron Prime BEEF training NCO in charge. “This also means that we will be outside the wire and we must be able to stand up a bare base. Our engineers must be able to navigate and have the foundation if (for whatever reason) they get lost or their technology breaks.” Training Airmen is not a regular occurrence for Cage or other Airmen in the engineering technician career field team. On a normal day, an 86th CES engineering technician may go from maintaining floor plants to surveying and creating detailed maps for tactical use. “We like to think we provide some of the best maps around,” said Senior Airman Dwayne Stewart, 86th CES instructor. “I like my job and the impact I have on the Ramstein and KMC mission.” Stewart said he hopes the training and the engineer technician’s dedication to the mission allows a few more civil engineers to know the foundation of land navigation and understand how engineer technicians impact the mission.

he Warrior Transition Battalion-Europe hosted the European Regional Warrior Games time trials for wounded warriors across Europe Feb. 13 on Vogelweh. The time trials are a competition to see how warriors stack up against their fellow brothers-in-arms in track and field and other competitive events. “A big part of the Warrior Transition Battalion is adaptive sports, which is a part of our recovery process,” said Army Staff Sgt. Ollie Knowland, Warrior Transition Unit wounded warrior. “Every day, the unit does different things to help us recover, and this event is one of those efforts.” Wounded warriors from Baumholder, Kaiserslautern, Wiesbaden, Stuttgart, Vilseck and Grafenwöhr came out to compete in the events. “Our events today include air rifle, the 1,500meter run, 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, shot put and discus,” said Dr. Linda A.

Capt. Spanky learns about Fasching Good day, or “Guten Tag,” my furless followers. This week I took time off from the Ramstein mission to focus on a local event — Fasching! It was time to celebrate and party, with cheese! Well, I hope you got your party on, because by the time you read this, it will be over. Let’s discuss what Fasching is. Traditionally, it was celebrated by the Roman Catholic communities of Germany, Switzerland and Austria, but now it is celebrated everywhere in different forms. A similar event with close roots is Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, celebrated in New Orleans. I had a cousin in New Orleans who used to play with a jazz band; he played the tambourine with his mouth. Humans celebrate with a variety of things, including parades and dressing up like animals. I mean, look at me. How can you not want to dress like an awesome, cheese-loving pup? So, when do the celebrations happen? “Weiberfastnacht,” the Thursday before Ash Wednesday, is the start. The weekend afterward is full of community events and parties. “Rosenmontag,” or Rose Monday, is when most of the

large scale celebrations happen. Then you have “Fastnachtsdienstag,” the last day to party. So, you had a whole week to involve yourself in the culture. I know I enjoyed the parade in Ramstein village Tuesday. So, friends, things may vary since everybody celebrates differently, but everybody likes to party. So I hope you had a Fasching-great time and that you keep enjoying the local culture.

Sembach fifth-graders begin Read and Ride Program by Shane Sharp Europe Regional Medical Command Public Affairs Fifth-graders at Sembach Middle School are combining exercise and academics in a recently implemented Read and Ride pilot program designed to boost physical activity and reading time. With the Read and Ride program, students spend three 20-minute sessions per week reading while they pedal on small, stationary cycles. These sessions may seem short, but the program doubles the amount of structured physical activity the students get per week and increases silent, sustained reading time by about 40 percent on a weekly basis, said Dr. Cynthia Jackson, instructional systems specialist for P.E./Health Education at the Department of Defense Education Activity-Europe. Initial feedback from the reading riders is positive. “It’s pretty fun,” said fifth-grader Curtis Gardner. “I have a BMX bike at home, and in the summer I like to ride it down a big hill. I like to read sports books, too. This is like combining them together, so it makes it real fun.” The program is a partnership between DODEA Europe, Army

Europe Regional Medical Command, the Rheinland-Pfalz Sergeant Morales Club and the local chapter of the Association of the U.S. Army. Army Maj. Jessica Counts, ERMC System for Health program manager, introduced the Read and Ride program, which is being used in some U.S. schools, to Jackson as a way to increase the amount of physical activity students receive on a weekly basis. As part of the Performance TRIAD, the Army surgeon general recommends 150 minutes of activity per week. Counts found a willing collaborator in Jackson for the pilot program; Jackson was also seeking ways to promote physical activity for students. “Physical activity is part of the Army surgeon general’s Performance TRIAD, which also promotes improvements in sleep and nutrition habits in addition to adequate exercise,” said Brig. Gen. Van Coots, commander of Europe Regional Medical Command. “This program is an excellent example of what the Performance TRIAD is all about. Small improvements in critical areas can make a big difference.” “Increasing reading competency is a top goal of the Sembach Middle School so we thought the program would be a good fit,” Jackson said.

Parents’ Night Out

up late for Read and Ride time, they are quick to let me know. It’s something they really look forward to.” The Read and Ride program is designed so the students have ownership in their progress. “This is a student program,” Jackson said. “They track their own data in areas like reading competency, fitness tests and body mass index. They established their baseline data in January, and they will test again in April and then in June. Once the data is compiled, if the results are positive, we will offer (the Read and Ride Program) up to other schools.” Early results are encouraging, especially in reading. “We’ve already seen improvement in their excitement for reading,” Jackson said. The students seem to agree, but they also brought up one critical area that can make or break the experience on an individual level. “Pedaling on the bikes makes it more interesting. I’m so into my book I don’t even notice how much I’m pedaling,” said fifth-grader Isabella Taylor. “Of course, if you don’t have a book you like, it would be boring and it would feel like it was lasting forever.”

Asian & Antique Auction

“We contacted the P.E. teacher, Mr. Street, who helped spearhead the initiative and recruit teachers. The Sembach Middle School fifth-grade teachers Ms. DeGavage and Ms. Steigerwalt enthusiastically agreed to become part of the pilot.” Identifying classes to participate in the program was only half of the startup work. The program still needed enough pedals for all the fifth-grade feet at the middle school. Jackson said NCOs with the 21st Theater Sustainment Command arranged for the Rheinland-Pfalz Sergeant Morales Club to fund half of the equipment costs. The other half of the costs were provided by the local chapter and regional organization of the AUSA. After arrangements were made to purchase the necessary low-profile cycle units, the program began in January and has been met with enthusiasm from both teachers and students. “We are glad our school was chosen for the pilot,” said Rosemary DeGavage, Sembach Middle School fifth-grade teacher. “When they asked if we were interested, we said, ‘You bet!’ It’s wonderful to have an opportunity to start something like this, and the students have loved being involved.

What to expect at child’s first dentist visit by Airman 1st Class Kelly E. Gehman 86th Dental Squadron


eaching children proper oral hygiene care at a young age is an investment they will carry throughout their lives. When parents take their own dental hygiene seriously, it continually reinforces the importance of a healthy mouth to their children. Starting children on the path to good oral hygiene early is imperative to success — perhaps earlier than many might think. A child’s initial visit to the dentist should happen within six months after the first tooth comes in. This is usually right around his or her first birthday. This first visit will equip parents with essential pediatric oral hygiene tips and also familiarizes the child with the dental office. It is important for children to feel comfortable during the first visit, and the way parents prepare them can be the most important factor. It is best

for parents to start a conversation with their child that builds excitement and lets them know they get to smile a lot and show off their beautiful teeth. It’s completely normal for children to be a bit apprehensive at first. However, they look up to Mom and Dad more than anyone else. When parents remain calm and encouraging throughout the process, children are likely to respond similarly. What exactly can parents expect from the first visit? The dental clinic’s pediatrics team provides a full examination of the children’s teeth and gums so they can monitor growth and development. They offer a gentle cleaning, demonstrate several proper techniques to correctly brush and floss, and finish up with a bubble-gum or strawberry flavored fluoride treatment. For children ages 4 and older, the clinic may also take X-rays to see in between their teeth. The children usually love to look at their X-rays as the dentist tells them all about their teeth.

The best way for children to start feeling comfortable at the dentist is for parents to build excitement and let them know they get to show off their beautiful teeth.

Like adults, children should visit the dentist every six to 12 months. In between visits, parents remain the most significant role-model to teach their child healthy oral hygiene practices. Strong, healthy teeth early in child-

hood often results in confident children and greatly improves their quality of life. Parents should call the Ramstein Dental Clinic at 479-2210 or 06371-46-2210 to schedule their child for his or her first dental examination.

The Gambler Jim Bennett is a risk taker. Both an English professor and a highstakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank, a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett’s future. As his relationship with a student deepens, Bennett must take the ultimate risk for a second chance. Starring Jessica Lange, Mark Wahlberg
