NCO survey: degree programs to be added By Ed Barker NETC PAO

The Navy College Office (NCO) serving Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola and surrounding locations announced April 2 it is moving forward to offer additional degree programs based on the online Educational Needs Assessment Survey conducted late last year. According to NCO Pensacola Educational Services Specialist Ken Spradlin, voluntary educational programing is changing at a rapid pace, and Navy College is working to keep up. “When the last survey was conducted over eight years ago, distance learning was just becoming available,” said Spradlin. “Now virtually all of our partner schools offer online degree choices, and most Sailors choose a school and stay with it throughout their educational career. They take their education plan and institution with them as they transfer to new duty stations.” The survey gave Spradlin’s office significant insight into the changing needs of

its customers. “We surpassed our goal of 500 responses from the survey, and the suggestions that resulted are driving our efforts,” added Spradlin. “Some of the changes requested include additional seatedcourse options (instructor-led, in person) for general education programs, more eight-week courses and expanding our course offerings with additional degree programs.” According to Spradlin, the next step in the process is a request for proposals from schools that provide the degree programs identified in the needs assessment, and based on selections, a new base Memorandum of Understanding may be generated. NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Keith Hoskins recently toured the NCO for a familiarization and update on the survey results. Base leadership will play a key part in the selection process for any new and additional degree programs. “We definitely need to have more education options,” said Hoskins. “The

A survivor, leader, and American hero remembered By Darryl Orrell Center for Security Forces

He was a Mobile, Ala., native that survived the brutalities of being a prisoner of war, exercised steadfast leadership as a U.S. senator, and fostered patriotism among everyone he encountered. Retired admiral and former U.S. Sen. Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., died March 28 in Virginia Beach, Va. He was 89. A 34-year Navy veteran, Denton served on active duty during World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars. He was also heavily involved with the Cuban Missile Crisis as the commander of

the Guantanamo Defense Force. Denton’s final active-duty assignment was with the Chief of Naval Education and Training (now the Naval Education and Training Command). “Our nation has had to say goodbye to one of its greatest heroes,” said Center for Security Forces (CENSECFOR) Commanding Officer, Capt. Raymond Benedict. “His legacy has motivated several generations of Sailors and Marines as they receive vital Code of Conduct

training prior to deploying overseas in support of global operations.” In 1965, Denton was shot down and captured by North Vietnamese forces and for the next seven years and seven months, he was held as a prisoner of war (POW). He became the first U.S. military captive to experience four years of solitary confinement. It was during his captivity that Denton gave the American public its first confirmation that American POWs in North Viet-

nam were being tortured. He did this by blinking his eyes during a television interview that was arranged by his captors in 1966. The intent of his blinking went unsuspected by his captors, but to those trained in Morse code, Denton spelled out the letters T.O.R.T.U.R.E. “His incredible leadership and self-sacrifice inspired and saved countless lives during one of our nation's most horrific captivity situations in Hanoi,” said James Meehan, Code of Conduct Training Specialist at CENSECFOR. “The 4th Allied POW Wing motto in Hanoi was ‘Return with Honor’ and Adm. Denton exem-

plified this in every way by living up to and exceeding the values expressed in the Code of Conduct.” “Today, Adm. Denton no longer suffers from the scars of war and torture, but rather he has been recalled from the battlefront having fought the good fight,” said Meehan. “He was recalled and taken home to glory and that of eternal peace – rest in peace admiral, we have the watch.” During a speech in 2010, Denton made a statement to inspire all Americans: “As long as you realize who you are and the great country of which you belong, you can achieve anything.”

ʻCan I Kiss Youʼ ... An educational presentation titled “Can I Kiss You, a revealing look at dating and intimacy” brought in large crowds during its two performances at NAS Pensacola, according to Anne Ballensinger, a Sexual Assault Victim Advocate at NASP Fleet and Family Support Center. “Approximately 2,400 attended,” Ballensigner said. “27 D-SAACP (Department of Defense Sexual Assault Advocate Certification Program) certified SAPR victim advocates attended, received the training and were standing by. Three Sexual Assault Response Coordinators (SARCs) attended. The (NASP) CO, XO and CMC were in attendance at the 0800 show. And two victim advocates from Escambia County Sheriff's Office were our guests.” (Left to right) Marine Lance Cpls. Derrick Wentling and Damien Brooks show off T-shirts after seeing “Can I Kiss You.” Brooks believes he gained a better understanding of empathy and greater respect for the boundaries of others. “We are all brothers and sisters and must look out for our own,” Wentling said. “Bystander intervention means not only keeping someone from becoming a victim but also keeping someone from making a mistake.” Photo courtesy NASP FFSC NCO from page 1

demand signal for higher skill-sets is going to be there in the future, and we need to support that through our voluntary education programs and through the Navy College Office.” Some of the specific demand signals indicated by the survey include: • General education on-base seated offerings in an eight-week schedule. • Availability of additional on-base seated offerings for degrees in aviation, business, criminal justice, education, electronics and fire science. • Addition of electronics and fire science online degree programs. The Regional Director of Navy College Operations East Ernest Poe is optimistic about the inputs to the Pensacola NCO resulting from the survey. “We’re hopeful that the survey results will lead to an improved level of Sailor satisfaction and support in terms of new degree opportunities as identified by the survey,” said Poe. “Being able to implement programs that address the needs of our customers is exactly what we want each NCO to accomplish.” Spradlin added that the Navy College Program supports the personal and professional growth of Sailors by providing them opportunities to earn degrees that enhance their analytical skills and ability to make informed decisions, which helps make them invaluable assets to the Navy. It’s an important part of the 21st Century Sailor and Marine initiative that consolidates a set of objectives and policies, new and existing, to maximize Sailor and Marine personal readiness, build resiliency and hone the most combat-effective force in the history of the Department of the Navy.

changing habits to conserve energy today for a better future. Before RECP, electric bills were covered by Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH). BAH still covers residents' electric bills, but only if they are within the average for that billing cycle. If residents are over the average, they pay the difference, whether it is $2 or $50. Those who are below the average receive credit, while residents who are at the average simply do not pay or receive anything. There is also a 10 percent buffer area that ensures the difference in family size is accounted for. “I have seen a positive change. The amount of excessive over usage has decreased by probably about 30 percent,” Russ Downing, community manager for Balfour Beatty Communities NAS Pensacola, said. Excessive over usage by Balfour Beatty Communities standards is $100 over the average monthly bill, while

Vol. 78, No. 14

Downing goes by his “$80 trigger” to identify those homes with excessive usage. When a home is in the excessive usage category, Downing suspends that bill for the month, then performs an energy audit of the home with his maintenance staff. The purpose of the energy audit is to perform preventative maintenance for lost energy. His team checks water heaters, HVAC units and cracks in the windows and doors, along with anything else that would potentially increase an energy bill regardless of the resident’s living habits. Downing says the number of homes with usage levels extremely above the average has gone from 12 or 15 homes down to six or seven, so there is definitely a difference. The Agee family has lived in their Balfour Beatty Communities home for almost three years. They were concerned about how much energy they used at first, but when the program started, they were actually below the average monthly bill.

For a military family, there’s a hidden ‘I’ in ‘team’ By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

A

t regular intervals throughout his 26-year military career, my husband has been promoted to the next rank. Each time this happens, there is a little ceremony, during which my husband gives a brief speech. After two decades of being married to a Navy man, I have that speech pretty much memorized. “Capt. So-and-so, thank you for the wonderful introduction. Also, kudos go out to Petty Officer What’shisface for the lovely decor and delicious cake.

And every time, at that moment, I actually believe it’s true. Soon after, I find myself alone, changing the wiper blades, taking the dog to the vet, paying the exterminator bill and ordering our son to shave. My teammate is not around, because he is halfway across the globe. It’s not his fault; he’s working to support our family. But, when I become the sole manager of our family, I am often frazzled, overwhelmed, and unshowered, walking around with my arms

our chaotic home life on my own. This doesn’t feel like teamwork, but more like some bizarre form of solitary confinement. My husband just left for Italy. He will be gone for a only a week, then back for a week, then gone again to Alabama for a week, then home another week before he’s off again to Texas for another week. These little work trips are minor annoyances when compared to the long deployments other military folks are enduring, and besides, managing the home front alone gets easier the older you get, right? Uh, not so much. Like an old umbrella stroller with a wobbly wheel, an old shirt with a loose button, an old desktop computer with too many image files, an old blender that gives off a burning smell every time you try to make a frozen margarita – I used to work really well, but the older I get, the more likely it is that I’m gonna blow. The children tiptoe around the house, hoping that I’ll wipe the smudged mascara away from my eyes before I take them to school, and wondering whether I’ll force them

to eat cheese and crackers again for dinner. The dog senses tension, and follows me around the house, licking my pant legs. But with the distraction of the DVR, therapeutic happy hours with the neighbors, and a secret can of Pringles stashed in the laundry room, I know I will cope until my husband gets home. I must admit, I have come to enjoy certain aspects of my temporary solitude – total control of the TV clicker, sleep uninterrupted by snoring, cheese and cracker dinners. And he, too, relishes his “me time” while on travel – total control of the TV clicker, sleep uninterrupted with no wife telling him to stop snoring, restaurant dinners. Despite the suitcase full of dirty laundry and the generous gift of hotel mini-soaps he deposits with me upon returning home, we are undoubtedly happiest when we are together. But as a military family, we must often work separately toward our common goals. As sports writer Amber Harding once said, “... there most certainly is an ‘I’ in ‘team.’ It is the same ‘I’ that appears three times in ‘responsibility.’ ”

Navy doctor a good example for students Applications available for health scholarship program By Lt. Teng K. Ooi U.S. Naval Academy and Capt. Linda J. Beltra U.S. Navy Medical Corps

Lt. Cmdr. Josephine Nguyen, a naval flight surgeon and dermatologist, has a message for medical students: Consider the Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP). Nguyen’s career is a great example of the opportunities available to physicians serving in the Navy. Graduating second in her class from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1999, Nguyen was awarded a Navy Health Professions Scholarship. She received her doctor of medicine degree from Stanford School of Medicine in 2003. Following a transitional internship at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, she attended flight surgery training in Pensacola. After earning her wings, she served as a flight surgeon with Carrier Air Wing 5 in Atsugi, Japan. In 2007, she was accepted to a dermatology residency at the University of Pennsylvania, and completed her residency in 2010. A boardcertified dermatologist, she currently sees patients at the Naval Academy and Children’s National Medical Center, Washington, D.C. She is also

an assistant professor of dermatology at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. In addition to her clinical duties, Nguyen is the director of Navy medical student accessions for the Bureau of Medicine and oversees the Navy Health Professions Scholarship Program. She also is helping to organize the Navy’s recruiting efforts for this program across the United States. Her personal goal is to increase female and minority representation in Navy Medicine. “People choose to be Lt.

ECUA warning: ‘Flushable’ wipes can clog sewer pipes From the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority

The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) has reported that disposable/ flushable wipes have been causing many sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs). The problem is widespread across the country, not just locally, according to ECUA Public Information Officer Jim Roberts. Disposable wipes of all kinds are exploding in popularity and are proving to be an environmental nightmare when instead of tossing them in the trash, the preferred method of disposal, people flush them down the toilet. The “flushable” label means they will go down the toilet when flushed. What you should be concerned about is what can happen next. Disposable wipes do not disintegrate quickly in water like toilet paper. Consumer Reports tested several brands of wipes labeled “flushable” and found that while toilet paper disintegrated after about eight seconds, the wipes still

Keep your pipes clog free Here’s a list of what you should not flush: • Baby wipes, facial wipes, personal wipes, cleaning wipes. • Band-aids and bandage wrappers. • Cotton balls, swabs and pads. • Dental floss and teeth whitening strips. • Disposable diapers, nursing pads. • Personal hygiene products. • Flammable or explosive substances. • Hair, kitty litter, needles and sharp objects. • Motor oil, transmission fluids, anti-freeze, solvents, paints, turpentine, nail polish, polish remover or other toxic chemicals. • Paper towels and rags. • Expired and unused prescription or over-the-counter medications. For more information, contact ECUA Customer Service Department at 476-0480 or go to www.ecua.fl.gov customer.service@ecua.fl.gov.

hadn’t broken down after 30 minutes. These products stay largely intact as they travel through the ECUA sewer system and can easily get caught on other debris, increasing the risk of clogs in your pipes and SSOs in your home or in the street.

As the use of disposable wipes grow, ECUA is committing significant resources to remove them from sewer lines, pumps and wastewater treatment plant facilities, and to repair or replace the equipment they damage. Disposable wipes are an even greater

threat to your home’s sewer pipe, which is smaller and more easily clogged. In addition to potentially causing clogs and SSOs, many of the cleaning and disinfecting wipes contain chemicals that are difficult for ECUA sewer treatment processes to remove. If you use disposable cleaningwipes, moist towellettes, baby wipes, personal hygiene wipes or similar disposable or socalled “flushable” products, put them in the trash, never in your toilet. It is recommended that you flush only human waste and toilet paper, regardless of what the product label says. “The ECUA encourages our friends aboard NAS Pensacola to please place disposable cleaning/disinfecting wipes, moist towellettes, baby wipes, personal hygiene wipes, paper towels or so-called ‘flushable’ products in the trash, never in your toilet,” Roberts said.

NMOTC celebrates Women’s History Month From NMOTC

S

ervice members and civilians from the U.S. Navy’s premier training facility for operational medicine and aviation survival training participated in a March 28 event designed to celebrate the successes, challenges and contributions of women in the United States Navy. The Navy Medicine Operational Training Center (NMOTC) Diversity Committee-sponsored event, under the auspices of the nationally proclaimed Women’s History Month celebrated annually in March, included a lecture from University of West Florida adjunct instructor Patricia Gleich. NMOTC Diversity Officer Lt.j.g. Matthew Christensen said this event served to reinforce the role women play in the Navy and U.S. Armed Forces today. “Women today are serving their country in roles previous generations might have had a difficult time envisioning,” he said. “Women in the military today are involved in nearly every aspect of the Navy’s mission – from boots on the ground in contingency areas, to ships and submarines at and under the sea, to critical aviation roles which see them on the front lines. Even as little as two decades ago, some of the things these shipmates are doing wouldn’t have been possible.” During the hour-long presentation, Gleich discussed how

female service members viewed culture changes in the military and society during their careers. Women’s History Month traces its beginnings back to the first International Women’s Day in 1911. In 1978, the school district of Sonoma, Calif., participated in Women’s History Week, an event designed around the week of March 8 (International Women’s Day). In February of 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued a presidential proclamation declaring the week of March 8, 1980, as National Women’s History Week. In 1981, responding to the growing popularity of Women's History Week, the first Joint Congressional Resolution proclaiming a Women’s History Week was passed. Throughout the next several years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as Women’s History Week. Schools across the country also began to have their own local celebrations of Women’s History Week and even Women’s History Month. By

1986, 14 states had declared March as Women’s History Month. In 1987, after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress designated the month of March 1987 as Women’s History Month. Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the president to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, U.S. presidents have issued annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month. Christensen added that the value of cultural and gender diversity throughout the ranks of

the United States Armed Forces cannot be understated, saying that observances such as this serve to celebrate service members’ differences while highlighting the commonalities between all Sailors. “Events such as this serve to further not only the education of the Sailors and civilians working here, but the countless other individuals with whom they have contact,” he said. “We might all come from different backgrounds and, different areas of the world, but we all have chosen in one way or another to serve the United States Navy. And in some ways, that is exactly what the Navy is, a cross section of the United States.” NMOTC, the recognized

global leader in operational medical and aviation survival training, reports to Navy Medicine Education and Training Command (NMETC). NMETC manages Navy Medicine’s formal enlisted and officer education and training programs, medical operational training for medical and medical support personnel deploying worldwide, and training that prepares aviators and flight crews to survive in land and water mishaps. NMOTC and NMETC are part of the Navy Medicine team, a global health care network of Navy medical professionals around the world who provide high-quality health care to more than one million eligible beneficiaries.

NASWF advances security through NACMS By Jay Cope NASWF PAO

A

ccess to Naval Air Station Whiting Field got a little more high tech recently as a new security system was instituted to verify identification cards. The new process uses modern scanning tools to read and display the information from ID cards on portable displays for security personnel. This new process, called the Navy Access Control Management System (NACMS), requires that 100 percent of all persons entering into a Navy installation surrender their DoD-issued IDs to be scanned and cleared for access. This process is accomplished by using a hand-held scanner that is tied into various servers throughout the Navy. NACMS is part of a continuously evolving access control system that is taking advantage of advances in technology to enhance the safety and security of every member aboard the Navy’s nearly 60 shore installations in the United States. NAS Whiting Field first implemented the scanners

March 7. The security team spent the first week working out any difficulties with the process and the system has been online ever since. Scan times average from two to 10 seconds, but should decrease slightly over time as initial card scans are completed. Scan times vary due to factors such as the load on the network or the type of ID being scanned, and while delays have been fairly minimal to this point, they are an expected part of the process. On an average week the main gate at NASWF scans up to 13,000 IDs. Given that traffic volume, even a few seconds per vehicle adds up. The majority of delays are experienced Monday

through Friday between the hours of 6:30 to 7:30 a.m. The average time to enter the base during this high traffic time is 10 minutes, from Highway 87 to the gate. Everyone should remember that the east / back gate is open from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday, and if individuals, tenant commands and other work forces could adjust their times of arrival to the base, it would help reduce the traffic flow during the peak hours. “We highly recommend that persons entering the base be aware of possible delays while on Highway 87 and make every attempt to be prepared for stopped and or slow-moving traffic,”

A Naval Air Station Whiting Field security officer scans an ID card using the Navy Access Control Management System (NACMS). The new system enhances the safety and security of personnel onboard the base. Photo by Ens. Lindsay G. Grover

Lt.j.g. Stephen Pakola said. “The Navy and NAS Whiting Field are committed to continuously updating the security and access control of our installation, and we need to adapt to and adjust our travel times to mitigate any delays for work or attending training.” The trade-off is a safer base that significantly en-

hances security’s ability to limit access to unauthorized persons. NACMS improves the department’s abilities to protect the installation and its personnel from criminal and terrorist threats. That makes the inconveniences seem rather minor. The Navy first started working with NACMS in December and Com-

mander Navy Installations Command (CNIC) is implementing the process in stages across the country. Navy Region Southeast started in January and should be complete no later than next month. The conversion to the NACMS program is expected to be completed at all CONUS stations by mid-summer.

Child Abuse

April is

It only takes a minute.

Prevention Month

From NASP FFSC

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and NAS Pensacola joins other installations in raising awareness of child abuse and neglect with the theme “It Only Takes a Minute.” Today’s families are busier than ever, and with increasing demands on parents’ time and attention, it is important to remember that it may take as little as a minute without supervision for a child to get into a dangerous and even life-threatening situation. In recent years, numerous abuse and neglect cases have been attributed to parents and caregivers who were distracted by electronic activities such as video games and texting. All child abuse and neglect are preventable, and there are six main protective factors that reduce the likelihood of child abuse and neglect. These six factors are: • Parental resilience: Parents who are able to deal effectively with life’s stressors using positive coping methods. • Social connections: Having a network of supportive family and friends who are invested in the family’s wellbeing. • Knowledge of parenting and child development: Children have different needs at different ages and parents must adapt as the family life cycle moves forward. • Concrete support in times of need: Having family or friends who are able to step in during stressful times and provide child care, help with household tasks, errands,

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Month of the Military Child. This year’s Child Abuse Prevention Month campaign theme is “It Only Takes a Minute.” The message was designed to sensitize parents and other caregivers that child abuse and neglect incidents often times occur very quickly. “It Only Takes a Minute” for a child to get into trouble.

and other practical needs. • Healthy social and emotional development: Providing children with opportunities for age-appropriate social interactions and teaching them how to emotionally connect with others and express themselves in healthy ways. • Nurturing and attachment: Providing children with a supportive home environment in which they feel safe and loved. The NASP Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC)

offers a wide range of free services and classes that can help parents learn how to maximize these protective factors and to navigate the unique stressors that come with military life. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and FFSC is proud to play a key role in that village. For questions related to Child Abuse Prevention Month onboard NAS Pensacola, call Fleet and Family Support Center at 452-2155.

Jokes & Groaners Allergies... As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where I work, I ask the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they are, I print it on an allergy band placed on the patients’ wrists. Once when I asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she said she couldn’t eat bananas. Imagine my surprise when several hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses’ station demanding, “Who’s responsible for labelling my mother ‘bananas’?” Did you hear the one about the prision convict who had an allergy? He broke out. We’ve discovered our daughter suffers from severe allergic reactions to wheat, soy, dairy and eggs.

Open house at NASP Fleet and Family Support Center By Kristy Malone NAS Pensacola FFSC

On April 2, the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola hosted a “Taste of FFSC” Open House, which was well-attended by service members, family members and civilians. “April has been designated the Month of the Military Child, Child Abuse Prevention Month, Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Autism Awareness Month, Volunteer Appreciation Month, and several other important things,” said Kathleen Doherty, director of the FFSC. “I knew that we wanted to highlight all of these important issues and we always want to have fun. Several staff members had suggested an open house, and we figured the timing was right. We always want to showcase our programs to our customers and also wanted to recognize and honor our community partners.”

The FFSC open house was a center-wide event with all staff participating, creating, and facilitating activities that gave attendees a sampling of the programs and services offered at FFSC. The disaster readiness program explained the importance of keeping a “bug-out bag” and ensuring that NFAAS information is accurate and up to date. FFSC personal financial management specialists facilitated a game of “tic-tacdough” and a “find your inner duck” activity, which included

different kinds of rubber ducks that were used to help people determine where their career passions lay. FFSC’s Clinical Counseling Program chose “Be Happy” as their focus, teaching easy everyday activities that happy people regularly practice. Attendees were taught deep breathing in one classroom and smiling exercises in another. “Contrary to what many people believe about counseling, our program is not just for people experiencing significant problems or unhappiness

in their personal or professional lives; we also provide tools to help people facing normal everyday stressors to feel happier and less stressed,” Clinical Supervisor Darla Huffman explained. The event was attended by base leadership, including Commander, Naval Education Traing Command Rear Adm. Mike White and NASP CO Capt. Keith Hoskins. “Whenever I come here, I always leave better and happier than when I arrived,” Hoskins said. One tenant command XO who participated in the smiling exercise was surprised to discover, “it really works.” “I had never been to Fleet and Family Support and was shocked at how awesome the organization is,” Terri Stine, a civilian employee at MWR NAF Personnel Office, said “Keep up the good work.” Doherty was pleased with the event’s success. “I could not possibly be prouder of the staff at FFSC,” she said. “It seemed as if everyone who at-

tended the open house had a great time. My staff represented their programs with passion and enthusiasm and got to show off some of the wonderful things they do. All in all, it couldn’t have been better.” NASP’s Fleet and Family Support Center offers a variety of services and resources to service members and their dependents, including information and referral; couple and individual counseling; education classes; an ombudsman program; a family employment readiness program; new parent support; relocation assistance program; transition assistance program; personal financial planning; family advocacy program; exception family member program; life skills education and the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program (SAPR).

Hain to speak at Child Abuse Prevention Month event By Janet Thomas Gosport Staff Writer

Prevention of child abuse was one of the issues Phyllis Hain focused on before she retired in 2012 as education services facilitator for the NAS Pensacola Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC). But Hain’s fight to Phyllis Hain protect children did not end when she retired. Hain will be one of the speakers at a luncheon and panel discussion for anyone in the field of child protection and family serv-

ices. “The Journey From Blue to Better – a reflection of experiences within the child protection field” is one of the local Child Abuse Prevention Month events. The event is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. April 16 at Gulf Coast Kid’s House conference room, 3401 North 12th Ave. Admission is free, but seating is limited to 60 and reservations are required. For more information, contact Stacey Kostival, executive director or Gulf Coast Kid’s House, by phone at 595-5780 or by e-mail at executivedirector@gckh.org Other members of the panel will be former circuit judge Laura Melvin and Lauren Book, founder of Lauren’s Kids, a

group that works to prevent sexual abuse through education and awareness. Book is a survivor of six years of abuse from a nanny and has dedicated her life to telling others that it is “always OK to tell.” Following the event, local residents are invited to join Book for one leg of her fifth annual 1,500 mile Walk In My Shoes. Walkers will depart from Gulf Coast Kid’s House at 2:45 p.m. and cover about 7.25 miles. The walk is scheduled to end at Publix in Gulf Breeze. Melvin was a practicing attorney for 10 years before serving as circuit judge for 10 years. In retirement, Melvin has continued to advocate for children.

Hain is a survivor of abuse from her father and first husband. Her story of recovery and hope is recorded in her new memoir, “Diamond in the Dark: Leaving the Shadow of Abuse.” Hain spent 21 years as a DoD employee aboard NAS Pensacola. For 5½ years, she was the coordinator of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program. She worked with victims and completed many hours of training. Hain said she feels fortunate that she got the chance to work with Navy families and victims of sexual assault. “I have to tell you, I feel like, by the grace of God that is where I ended up,” she said. “I never

planned it. I would have never dreamed that I would work in that field.” She said the education she received from the Navy opened her eyes to some of her own problems. Her past experiences also made it possible for her to help other people. “I have so much compassion for them, but I also can fall back on my education, to where it is not just feeling sorry for somebody, but it is helping to prop them up so that they can deal more effectively with their problems,” she said.

Cemetery plays up history From St. Michael’s Cemetery Foundation

St. Michael’s Cemetery serves as an outdoor museum chronicling the rich and diverse cultural heritage of the Florida Gulf Coast, and you can “Get in the Spirit” of things during an annual educational event tomorrow, April 12. University of West Florida (UWF) faculty and students will be on hand to discuss conservation methods and mapping techniques.

ies will be present to tie in the inhabitants of their cemetery with those in St. Michael’s. Participants will be able to access the computerized Geographic Information System (GIS) and learn about the cemetery’s changing landscape. St. Michael’s Cemetery is an

eight-acre green space in the heart of historic Pensacola. A burying ground since the late 18th century, the site contains approximately 3,200 marked graves and a substantial number of unmarked graves. Pensacola drew immigrants from around the world. The cemetery is the resting place of captains of industry and victims of yellow fever epidemics and steam ship explosions, along with those who died in child birth, as infants and of old age. Today, primary stewardship for the cemetery is provided by St. Michael’s Cemetery Foundation of Pensacola, a nonprofit that works with UWF, community groups and individuals to preserve the site.
