CNRSE wraps up 2014 Feds Feeds Families campaign NAS Pensacola donated 96,557 pounds – more than 25 percent of Navy Region Southeast’s total By Twilla Smith Navy Region Southeast Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Navy Region Southeast recently completed another successful year of food and non-perishable donations collected for the Feds Feeds Families campaign. Feds Feeds Families primary goal is to help end hunger in America by offering emergency food assistance to support families across the country. This year’s campaign ran from June1 to Aug. 31 throughout the region and the country. All region totals Navywide were turned in Sept. 5 for a grand total of 1,310,374 pounds collected throughout the nation. Navy Region Southeast announced it collected 373,299 pounds of food and non-perishable donations accounting for 30 percent of the

DoN releases energy survey From the Office of the Chief of Information

WA S H I N G T O N (NNS) – The Navy opened an online energy survey to service members throughout the Navy, Aug. 25, to gain a better understanding on how the fleet views the role of energy in the Navy’s mission. Participants in the survey are chosen via random selection among service members. The survey results will be used to help guide ongoing planning efforts with the Department of the Navy’s (DoN) energy program. The survey will be available for 30 days and the results are expected back in October. In October 2009 the Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus laid out five aggressive energy goals to improve the Navy’s energy security and efficiency, increase the Navy’s energy independence, and help lead the nation toward a clean energy economy. The DoN is achieving several initiatives through

nationwide total. NAS Pensacola’s contribution was 96,557 pounds, with Naval Air Technical Training Center the largest giver with 8,144 pounds. “It was a banner year for us, and our community,” said Cmdr. Steven “Todd” Orren, NASP command chaplain. “I am very happy with the response from all those who gave to those who need it most. This is an amazing program that helps feed those who are hungry in our community; who wouldn’t feel good about that?” Each region and all of its installions collect donations and choose local area food banks to distribute the collected food items. This year’s donations for Navy Region Southeast were collected

Chief petty officers pinned at NAS Pensacola By Lt. Jonathan Bacon NATTC PAO

Twenty-two instructors from Naval Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Pensacola were promoted to the rank of chief petty officer during a basewide ceremony aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) Sept. 16. At the ceremony, 31 Sailors, from commands across NASP received the gold fouled anchors, khaki combination covers, and the right to be called “chief.” The ceremony capped off six weeks of training where the chief selects were educated on Navy customs and traditions, and prepared for

their new role as senior enlisted leaders. In his opening remarks, Capt.

Keith Hoskins, NASP commanding officer, reminded the new chiefs that “only the highly capa-

ble and incomparable have been selected to the wear the fouled anchor.” He challenged them to be “shining examples of pride and professionalism,” and that in their new role they will be expected to mentor junior officers, and be a fountain of wisdom for junior Sailors. Hoskins encouraged the new chiefs to lead with honor, courage and commitment, and to act as a moral compass. Naval Education and Training Command Force Master Chief Jon Port used his remarks, as the guest speaker, to speak to the new chiefs about legacy, and foundations. He

New Corry track gives users professional-grade athletic surfaces Story, photo By Mike O’Connor Gosport Associate Editor

The grass underfoot was synthetic, but the smiles were real as a ribbon was cut Sept. 10 to dedicate a reconstructed track and athletic infield facility at NAS Pensacola Corry Station. Base officials, Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southeast (NavFac SE) personnel and representatives from contractor Cape Design Engineering were on hand for the ceremony, which officially opened for use a 440-yard running track and synthetic turf infield on the inside of the track. “We’ve done several fields for the Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) organization on Navy bases and this will be the fourth one we’ve completed,” Mark Lueders, construc-

tion manager for Cape Design Engineering, said. “It’s a little bit different from the other ones in that the drainage design is a little more rigorous, however everything came out beautifully. One of the things we’ve noticed when we do projects that affect the recreational aspects of the base is that the results are very gratifying for everybody – you get to see the troops out there using the product. Everyone

seems to like the play of the field; the (synthetic) surface makes it a little easier on their joints.” The work included reconstruction and surfacing of the existing track pavement and installation of synthetic track infield, along with underground facilities (storm drain and water).

NHP: Urgent Care Clinic appointments now available From Naval Hospital Pensacola

TRICARE beneficiaries can now schedule appointments at Naval Hospital Pensacola’s (NHP) Urgent Care Center (UCC) for evenings and weekends. The appointments will be available Monday-Friday from 5 to 9 p.m. and weekends and holidays from noon-9 p.m. Appointments can be made through www.tricareonline.com or by calling the UCC at 505-6731. Appointments can also be made through the Nurse Advice Line by calling 1-800-TRICARE (option 1) 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“We want to provide the best care possible at our UCC and give beneficiaries the opportunity to schedule appointments to meet their urgent care needs,” said Cmdr. Carolyn Rice, director of medical services. Since opening June 1, the UCC has been fulfilling its mission of providing exceptional care quickly and efficiently. Beneficiaries visiting the UCC should expect quick service. The average length of time for a visit to the UCC is approximately an hour. Common treatments at NHP’s UCC include sore throats, ear infections and fevers. Beneficiaries with true emergencies such as chest pain, stroke-like symp-

and dropped off at Waste Not Want Not in Orange Park, Fla. Waste Not Want Not is a volunteer organization that exists to prevent the discarding of items that can be used to fight hunger and poverty in the community. This year’s August issue of National Geographic mentioned the Feds Feeds Families campaign as a program that could be used to help fight the “The New Face of Hunger.” “The 2014 Feds Feed Families campaign was an overwhelming success due to the hard work of the Sailors at each installation throughout the Southeast Region,” said RPC (SW/FMF) Michael A. Hawthorne, the region coordinator for the 2014 Feds Feeds Families campaign. Although the 2014 Feds Feed Families campaign is coming to an end, your local food banks welcome donations year round. The Feeding America Web site provides a locator tool that can assist you with finding local food banks in your area.

charged the new chiefs to lead with humility, and not to mistake military courtesies for respect for the person wearing the uniform. “You are the legacy of generations of chiefs who came before, and you are the foundation of generations of future chiefs to come,” Port said. Following the speakers’ remarks, and a presentation on the meaning of the chief’s insignia; family, friends, and shipmates pinned the gold fouled anchors, with the superimposed silver letters “U.S.N.” to their Sailor’s khaki shirt collars, and placed a khaki combination cover atop their head. With their new rank affixed, each was piped through the side boys and presented to the assembled audience. One of the NATTC instructors promoted was ACC Vincent Cooke. “It feels really good to be pinned today, and I think that coming to Pensacola as an instructor helped me get to this point,” Cooke said. Following the ceremony, NATTC Command Master Chief Kirk Klawitter commented about his history at the training command. “After two full previous tours here at NATTC, and now as the command master chief, I take a lot of pride in seeing this day take place each year,” he said. “Thirteen years ago I earned my anchors here in Pensacola, and my wife pinned me in the Naval Aviation Schools Command theater. Each of us that wear the chief’s anchor know exactly how the newly pinned chiefs of the class of FY15 are feeling. Each year we get the opportunity to see our ranks grown, and

toms or serious trauma should always call 911 or visit an ER. If beneficiaries are in doubt as to whether they should visit an ER or the UCC, the Nurse Advice Line (1-800-TRICARE, option 1) is available to assist with that decision. Beneficiaries enrolled in one of the hospital’s Medical Home Port Teams should always contact their team before visiting the UCC during normal clinic hours. The UCC is open seven days a week from 10 a.m.9 p.m. and is available to all TRICARE beneficiaries including TRICARE Prime, Standard and TRICARE For Life at no cost.

also reflect ourselves. “None of us would be where we are today without the love and support of our family, and those that have gone before us,” Klawitter continued. “Times have changed, and I am a firm believer that CPO-365 does work. We in the Pensacola area take a lot of pride in ensuring that the newly pinned chiefs are ready to accept, and carry the weight of being called a chief petty officer. I honestly cannot think of a better place to make chief, and am so proud to see what this group will bring to our mess.” For more than 70 years, NATTC has been delivering training and increasing readiness within the Naval Aviation Enterprise. NATTC graduates approximately 15,000 Navy, Marine and international students annually. The majority of the student body is comprised of enlisted personnel attending “A” schools, where they gain the knowledge and skills required to perform in the fleet as technicians at the apprentice level. Advanced schools provide higher level technical knowledge for senior petty officer’s, and specialty schools offer specific skills not particular to any one rating, such as airman apprentice training, maintenance, personal financial management and shipboard aircraft firefighting. NATTC also conducts technical training for officers in aviation fuels, carrier air traffic control center operations, aircraft launch and recovery equipment, shipboard aircraft fire fighting and amphibious air traffic control center operations.

Track from page 1

The contract cost was $1.64 million and was awarded Sept. 5, 2013. The running track consists of a half-inch polyurethane synthetic track surface, built on an asphalt concrete track section. The synthetic turf field interior has a synthetic turf section more than two inches thick on top of an eight-inch composite aggregate base. It’s designed with the layout of both a flag football field and soccer field. “This was an outstanding project because it has an immediate positive impact upon the (service members) who use the track and field,” said Cmdr. Jeff Deviney, NASP Public Works Officer. “It really is a world class facility, because it utilizes technologies that can be found at professional stadiums around the world.” NASP MWR Director Kerry Shanaghan was also pleased with the way the project turned out. “NASP Corry Station now has a state-of-the-art facility with the same turf used in NFL and collegiate stadiums,” Shanaghan said. “That will make those early morning PT sessions a lot more enjoyable, particularly if it rains, based on the large drainage system under the field and around the inside perimeter of the track. It might not ship 26 inches of rain in 24 hours as seen last April, but it will make the track and field useable during and immediately after heavy rain.” The synthetic track and field project was created due to the heavy amount of use the track and field area received from unit PT sessions, MWR intramural sports and general off duty recreation by all patrons, making it difficult to maintain the natural turf field, Shanaghan said. “NASP MWR and the NavFac Facilities Maintenance Department, in conjunction with Cape Design Engineering, worked this project for more than four years to ensure proper funding, planning and ultimate construction met the highest industry standards and levels of safety,” Shanaghan added. Users need to be mindful of certain restrictions required to maintain the synthetic turf. Metal spikes, gum, tobacco products of any kind, sunflower seeds, most food products and pets are not allowed on the turf. Group activity requests for reservations can be made through NASP Sports Dept. at 452-4391.

Marriage retreats offer emotional journey at NASP By Bobby L. Hinton NASP CREDO facilitator

The marriage enrichment retreats sponsored July 25-27 and Aug. 8-10 by the Chaplain’s Religious Enrichment Development Operation (CREDO) both were events that delivered on promises of helping challenged marriages move towards unity, typical marriages move towards greater corporation and exceptional marriages move towards new plaques of love. Several of the participants testified to that fact: Here are some anonymous comments from retreat participants. “... more people should take advantage of these weekends.” “... this weekend has really helped my marriage ...” “... my wife and I weren’t having any problems, but this was a great tune-up.” The first and second MERs for NAS Pensacola started like any retreat with mixed emotions of anticipation. Some of the couples were anxious to get started and others were more anxious for it to end. However, those feelings of anxiety fueled the raw emotions that were needed, and laid the foundation for the service members and their spouses to have open and honest conversations. The first few hours were

spent meeting and greeting others, house keeping, ice breakers, and light conversations. After a few hours, the anxiety was replaced with calmness and laugher. In the midst of silences and uncertainty came moving comments such as: “You act just like that” and “Do I sound like that?” The couples were rediscovering each other all over

again. The over worried concerns were replaced with smiles and some tears. As the MERs continued for two days, participants talked more about communication, personality preferences and issues unique to the group. Throughout the retreat, the couples were engaged in knee-toknee conversations (talking

face-to-face), which created the atmosphere for open honest conversations without judgement. The entire weekend involved talking about feelings, sharing dreams and learning about the unique contributions that each person brought to their union. As a reminder of the weekend, the participants were given time to create a token of expres-

sion out of the hundreds of artsand-craft items available. Some participants made very simplistic gestures of love, and others made very elaborate expressions, still others made presentations that were so jaw dropping that they caused the group to gasp in awe. Before the final meal, all the couples were presented with a certificate to commemorate the occasion, and then the couples were led in a renewal of vows ceremony. During this time the couples were embracing each other, some tears were flowing and many kisses were exchanged. As the couples enjoyed their final meal at the retreat, many shared with others how this weekend had given them a new look at their relationship and love. Watching them leave the hotel, many couples echoed the same words, “... I’m telling my friends about this weekend ...” Our hope, my hope is that the team and I were able to make a difference in someone’s relationship, and that CREDO can help couples recapture that special essence of who they are as husband and wife. Bobby Hinton is a CREDO facilitator at NAS Pensacola. For more information on marriage retreats, contact the chaplain’s office at 452-2341.

Master-at-arms shares personal motivations at NAS Pensacola 9/11 commemoration ceremony MAC(Sel) Kathleen Ellison shared recollections of the terrorist attacks and how they affected her life and career Commentary by MAC(Sel) Kathleen Ellison NAS Pensacola Security

T

his is my brief story of the worst day of my life – Sept. 11, 2001, when 2,977 ordinary people were murdered by 19 psychopaths. I am here to bear witness to the pain and agony felt by the families of the murdered. My story, my mission, my fight. I am MAC(Sel) Kathleen Ellison. I am a Navy veteran. My first enlistment was from 19841988. I was stationed on board the USS McKee (AS 41) a submarine tender, at Point Loma, San Diego, Calif., as a boatswain’s mate petty officer third class. Fast forward to Sept.11, 2001. I was living in Grahamsville, N.Y., which is northwest of New York City, and working as a selfemployed court stenographer within the supreme and family court systems, Goshen, New York. At 8:46 a.m., the time when American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center, I was at the bathroom sink brushing my

teeth getting ready for work. I heard my mother say, “a plane just flew into the World Trade Center.” I ran out of the bathroom and saw the smoke billowing from the North Tower. That’s when my life changed. Lt. Vincent G. Halloran was a 20-year veteran of the New York City Fire Department and my sister’s brother-in-law. He was also my godson’s godfather. Vinny was assigned to Ladder No. 8, TriBeCa, N.Y. – the firehouse depicted in the movie “Ghostbusters.” He was married to his wife, Marie, and a father of five boys. He never knew that Marie was expecting their first girl. The firemen of Ladder No. 8 were a few blocks from the World Trade Center when the first plane hit. They were filming a documentary on the life of a “probie” firefighter. Those

men of Ladder No. 8 wasted no time in responding to the calls for help. At 9:03 a.m., United Airlines 175 crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center. I will never forget that image of that plane for as long as I live. At 9:37 a.m., the Pentagon was hit. At 9:59 a.m., the South Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed. At 10:07 a.m., Flight 93 crashes in Shanksville, Penn. At 10:28 a.m., the North Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed. At 7:30 p.m., my sister called my parents’ home and said, “They can’t find Vinny.” On Sept. 12, 2001, I drove to New Jersey to assist my sister and brother-in-law, Jim, and help take care of their children. Sept. 14, 2001: On my way back to New York, I stopped at the Navy recruiting office and signed up for active-duty service. Sept. 27, 2001: I am officially on active duty. A 38-year-old E3. I’m ready for what is ahead. Are they ready for me? My most memorable moment (so far) came July 31, 2004, at Abu Ghraib Prison, Baghdad, Iraq. At approximately 0830 while working the entry control point (ECP), my military working dog partner, Dexter – an explosive detector dog – and I were searching vehicles entering the prison compound. While we were searching a garbage truck, Dexter responds and “told” me

that he is 95 percent sure that there are some explosives on or in this truck. U.S. Marine Corps explosives specialists confirm. Forty-five minutes later, that

Lt. Vincent G. Halloran

truck is imploded. An investigation concludes that the gas tank had a hidden compartment and was filled with a plastic explosive. Further investigations stated that this truck was to gain

access to the compound and was to be parked in line with four other trucks next to the chow hall. The truck was to be exploded with the other four at approximately 11 a.m. – lunch time for more than1,000 military, coalition, DoD, contract and local employees. That didn’t happen. The terrorists didn’t win that day. It is because of what we do here today that they hate us so much; an assembly, speeches, fraternity, common cause, a “force for good” ... that the jihadist must destroy. They won’t, and you will be part of the reason. We do what we do because we love our country. We do what we do because we love our military. We do what we do because we love our families. Rest in peace, to all those innocents lost on 9/11. Rest in Peace, Vinny. My mission is personal.

Lt. Vincent G. Halloran, 43, FDNY, Ladder No. 8. A department veteran of 20 years, he served as a firefighter with Engine 262 in Queens and with Engine 43 in the Bronx. A father of five children, Halloran and his wife were expecting their sixth child.

10 years later: Remembering Hurricane Ivan From FEMA.gov

T

en years ago “Ivan the Terrible,” as the deadly hurricane was dubbed, ripped across the Gulf Coast as the strongest storm of the 2004 season. Ten years later, Hurricane Ivan serves as a reminder that the time to prepare for the next hurricane is now. Ivan is remembered for its storm surge, extensive rains and 117 tornadoes that caused coastal and inland flooding and tornado damage across much of the southeastern United States. Strong winds spread well inland – damaging homes, and downing trees and power lines. Ten states from Louisiana to New York received federal disaster declarations, including five in the Southeast. Ivan made its first U.S. landfall Sept. 16, as a strong Category 3 hurricane, just west of Gulf Shores, Ala., with its strongest winds occurring near the Alabama-Florida Panhandle border. Wind and high surf caused extensive damage to Innerarity Point and Orange Beach, Ala. In Florida, storm surge took out portions of the Interstate 10 bridge system in Pensacola Bay and Perdido Key was significantly damaged. Thousands of homes in Baldwin County (Alabama) and Escambia and Santa Rosa counties in Florida were damaged or destroyed. In Escambia County alone, debris piles were more

than three-quarters of a mile long and 70 feet high. In all, Ivan was the most destructive hurricane to affect this area in more than 100 years. “Hurricane Ivan serves as a reminder, especially during National Preparedness Month, that we all need to be ready for disasters and emergencies,” said FEMA Region IV Acting Regional Administrator Andrew Velasquez III. “September is also the height of hurricane season, so preparing now is even more critical for families and businesses in the Southeast.” Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare: September marks National Preparedness Month, and the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Ivan is an opportune time to plan for specific needs before a disaster. Whether you are planning for your family, your business or a faithbased or voluntary organization, use this week to understand your preparedness needs. Develop plans ahead of the next disaster. Information to help you make an emergency plan is at www.ready.gov or

Lopez transfers command of VT-2 By Jay Cope NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

Coast Guard Cmdr. Juan Lopez handed over command of Training Squadron Two (VT-2) to Cmdr. Thaddeus Withers, Sept. 12 at Naval Air Station Whiting Field (NASWF) in a ceremony that incorporated and celebrated naval aviation traditions. Integrating their aviation backgrounds into the event, the two officers formally changed command in the air while flying T-6B “Texan IIs,” landing and taxiing to the North Field hangar where honors, ceremonies, and speechmaking occured. Naval change of command ceremonies enable the assembled crew, staff, friends and guests to recognize the accomplishments of the outgoing commander while providing an opportunity to welcome the new commander into the fold. Under Lopez, the “Doerbirds” flew more than 37,000 Class A and B mishap-free flight hours and completed more than 24,000 sorties at an average 1.5 hours

per sortie. VT-2 graduated a total of 462 primary students under his tenure, to include 210 students in 2013, the highest number of completers across all CNATRA fixed-wing primary training squadrons. Lopez has surpassed the 5,000 career flighthour milestone during this tour as CO while flying more than 700 mishap-free hours in the T6B and completing more than 420 syllabus events in support of the squadron’s mission. Lopez’s dedication to the overall production mission was exemplified in his “out of the box” approach by guiding VT-2 in summer surge operations and spearheading a

three week detachment to Roswell, N.M., resulting in a 58 percent increase in flight hours and 75 percent increase in sorties over normal home field operations. A native of Yauco, Puerto Rico, Lopez enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in October 1987 and served as an aerospace ground equipment mechanic at Norton Air Force Base, Calif. After earning a Bachelor of Science and an MBA in management during his off duty time, he attended Coast Guard Officer Candidate School in Yorktown, Va. Following graduation from OCS in September 1992, he was as-

signed to Coast Guard Headquarters as a financial policy analyst. Lopez reported for flight training at Naval Air Station Pensacola in 1994 and received his wings of gold in July 1996. His first duty station was Coast Guard Air Station Houston, Texas, where he flew the HH65A Dolphin. He then served with an assortment of duty stations from Coast Guard Air Station Miami, Fla., Coast Guard Air Station Borinquen, Puerto Rico, and in November 2007, Lopez led as officer in charge of rescue and relief operations in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Noel in the Dominican Republic. His final stop before transferring to VT-2 was as the chief pilot and operations officer of Helicopter Interdiction Tactical Squadron (HITRON) in Jacksonville. Lopez has participated in more than 300 Search and Rescue missions and 23 deployments in support of law enforcement operations. Withers assumes the top spot after serving as the executive officer for about 15 months. A native of Kansas City, Mo.,

Withers graduated cum laude from Occidental College in 1992. After earning a master’s degree from Georgetown University, where he was a Fulbright scholar, he attended Officer Candidate School in Pensacola. A distinguished graduate of OCS, Withers was commissioned in 1997 and designated a naval aviator in 1999. He subsequently reported to Patrol Squadron 4 (VP-4) in Kaneohe, Hawaii. In September 2003, he reported to Training Squadron 10 where he was an instructor pilot flying the T-6A “Texan.” Withers was selected as an Olmsted Scholar in 2005. After attending Spanish language training at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, he completed two years of graduate study in public policy at the University of Torcuato di Tella in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He then served with an assortment of duty stations from VP-4 once again to Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Kaneohe Bay. The incoming executive officer will be Cmdr. Joseph McGilley, USCG.

Santa Rosa County welcomes military counselors Story, photo by Lt.j.g. Robert Provencher NAS Whiting Field Public Affairs

The Santa Rosa County school board dedicated a few moments during its Aug 21 meeting to formally welcome the Military Family Life Counselors (MFLC) that have been operating in Santa Rosa County for the last few years. Initiated in 2004, the MFLC program was begun with the intention of providing confidential, informal counseling to military members and their families at no cost. The program is funded through the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the counselors themselves are trained and provided by Magellan Health Services. For the last four and a half years, these counsellors have been active in Santa Rosa’s public schools. Before the meeting, the counselors had never been formally introduced to the school board. The Department of Defense assigned a number of counselors to NAS Whiting Field, and working with local

principles, School Liaison Officer Chris Hendrix coordinated their activity, assigning the MFLCs to schools based on the number of military connected children attending those schools. “We’ve had these counselors for a while,” Hendrix said. “We were actually one of the first bases to get them – we got them about four years go. We started out with five, we were able this past year to double that to ten, and then this school year they’ve increased us to eighteen. They’ve been very successful.” Military-connected students especially

face challenges associated with deployments of one or both parents. When a student is dealing with family members about to deploy, on deployment, or recently returned from deployment, he or she might experience undue levels of stress without knowing who to turn to. MFLCs have been trained to understand this stress, and to help students cope through one-on-one counseling and support group meetings. The counsellors have also been trained to help students cope with the frequent transitions associated with military life.

The average military child will change schools once every 2.9 years, and attend an average of nine schools between kindergarten and twelfth grade. The MFCLs strive to reduce the stress associated with these transitions by creating outreach programs to help welcome new military students into their schools. This eases the shock of entering a completely new environment, with new teachers, and having to make new friends. The Student 2 Student (S2S) program at Navarre High School is one such program, and because of S2S there hasn’t been a military child to enter Navarre High School without receiving a warm welcome in four and a half years. Those interested in learning more about the MFLC program, or in getting in touch with their school’s counsellor may contact their schools, or call NASWF School Liaison Officer Chris Hendrix at (850) 665-6105. They may also call Dr. Jennifer Friedrich, the regional supervisor for Magellan Health Services at (850) 375-6180.

Power outage prevention facts and myths (NAPS) – You can feel more secure that your home can weather any storm if you’ve got a generator to keep the lights and appliances on in an outage. First, however, it helps to understand a few facts about generators. Common myths include: Myth: Portable generators and standby generators are the same. Fact: A gasoline-powered portable generator typically powers a few appliances for a few hours at a time. A home standby generator is permanently installed and can keep the power on when the primary power source goes out, so you can run more appliances continually, such as air conditioners, heaters, refrigerators, clothes washers/dryers and lights. Portable generators can power a wide range of essential items and be used in multiple applications, such as camping or tailgating. Standby generators use your home’s existing fuel source (propane or natural gas) and turn on automatically. Myth: You have to go outside in a storm to start a standby generator.

A generator may solve your home’s power outage problems. September is National Preparedness Month, and hurricane season is at its peak.

Fact: One benefit of standby generators is the seamless transition of power. The generator goes on automatically within seconds after utility power goes out. When power is restored, the standby generator powers off automatically. Myth: A large, expensive standby generator is neces-

sary to power a house. Fact: Power management systems electronically control electrical loads. This lets you power more with a smaller generator. Myth: Standby generators are clunky eyesores that must be placed in the middle of the yard.

Fact: Recent design advancements may give homeowners more placement flexibility. Choose a standby generator that meets strict National Fire Protection Association standards, so it may be placed closer to the house than in the past. Myth: Standby generators require constant care and upkeep. Fact: Standby generators are programmed to exercise regularly – often once a week – to ensure that they are in working condition in the event of a power outage. Myth: Portable generators can be operated anywhere on your property, even inside your house or garage. Fact: Portable generators must always be operated outdoors and far from doors, windows, vents and other openings to prevent carbon monoxide – a poisonous, odorless, colorless, deadly gas – from getting trapped inside the home or garage. Protect your family with a carbon monoxide alarm whenever running a portable generator.

ECUA, Pensacola Energy share CNG success story From ECUA

E

merald Coast Utilities Authority (ECUA) and Pensacola Energy’s successful compressed natural gas (CNG) story was recently featured during the American Public Gas Association conference (APGA) in Lake Tahoe, Calif. ECUA Public Information Officer Jim Roberts delivered an impacting speech outlining the current CNG program, which has delivered fuel costsavings of $1.1 million in 20122013, a projected savings of $1.3 million in 2013-2014, and more than $350,000 in maintenance costs that ultimately translate into additional costsavings for ECUA customers. According to Chris Strippelhoff, vice president of Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia, “I especially latched onto the information that reduced fuel costs can translate into reducing or eliminating collection fees for recycling and/or yard waste. This is a huge PR opportunity for our members employing CNG in their waste services fleets.” Roberts stressed the significance of the ECUA and City of Pensacola’s gas utility, Pensacola Energy, working to establish a “utility-friendly” partnership, which is now recognized as an excellent model

program for utilities across America to embrace. In 2011, as part of a compressed natural gas (CNG) initiative spearheaded by Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward, ECUA orchestrated a tenyear CNG agreement with Pensacola Energy that includes building and developing public CNG fueling stations located at 6722 Pine Forest Road and 3320 Copter Road in the Ellyson Industrial Park. While the national average for a gallon of diesel fuel wavers around

$4, a diesel gallon equivalent of CNG at Pensacola Energy’s fueling station is currently priced at $2.05. CNG prices have remained stable during recent years as gasoline and diesel prices have risen steadily. “In this era of budget constraints, we must continually look for opportunities to work together, improve our operations, and generate non-tax revenue. These cleaner-burning natural gas vehicles will cost less to fuel and maintain, leaving more dollars for vital city and county services.” said Hayward. “These green initiatives favorably promote economic development for Escambia County and the city of Pensacola.”

ECUA maintains and operates the most diversified CNG fleet in the state of Florida with a current roster of 88 vehicles, a projected total of 100 vehicles by Oct. 1, 2014, and 130 vehicles by Oct. 1, 2015. Pensacola Energy currently operates and maintains the fueling stations. Fleet vehicles include Chevrolet and Ford pickup and utility trucks, Peterbilt semis and Sewer Vac trucks, Autocar Xpeditor roll offs, knuckle boom trucks and Autocar Xpeditor refuse trucks with McNeilus bodies. About ECUA: Originally founded as the Escambia County Utilities Authority in 1981 by a special act of the Florida Legislature, the ECUA

is a local governmental body, existing under the laws of the state of Florida. The authority has expertise in multiple facets of utility service, including sanitation, water and wastewater, engineering, policy formulation, customer service, and communications. About Pensacola Energy: As an enterprise fund for the City of Pensacola, Pensacola Energy owns and operates the natural gas distribution system that services Escambia County except for the City of Century and Pensacola Beach. Pensacola Energy is an innovative, high valued energy services provider with a commitment to excellence, safety and performance.

NASP beaches on the list for Sept. 20 Coastal Cleanup From NASP Natural Resources

Beach cleanup projects are scheduled around Naval Air Station Pensacola (NASP) from 8 a.m. to noon tomorrow, Sept. 20, as part of the 2014 International Coastal Cleanup organized by the Ocean Conservancy. Volunteers are scheduled to gather for clean ups at Trout Point, Lake Frederic, Oak Grove Campground, Barrancas Beach, Mustin Beach, CNATT/NATTC Beach and Blue Angel Park at Bronson Field. Volunteers are also needed at two off-base locations: • About 100 volunteers are

needed at the entrance of Fort Pickens to clean up old asphalt. • About 50 volunteers are

needed to clean up the Perdido Beach beachfront at Tarkiln Bayou State Park. Every year in September, more than half-a-million people in 100 countries remove millions of pounds of trash from beaches and waterways as part of the International Coastal Cleanup. The Ocean Conservancy has been sponsoring the annual cleanup for 29 years and it has grown into a major worldwide event. In 2013, 648,015 volunteers picked up more than 12.3 million pounds of trash along coastlines around the world. NAS Pensacola has participated in the project for more than 20 years. During last

year’s clean-up, about 75 volunteers picked up collected a total of 1,980 pounds of debris from the beaches aboard NASP, according to Navy Natural Resources Manager Mark W. Gibson. For more information or to sign up for the cleanup, call 452-3131, ext. 3008, or 4522532. NAS Pensacola beaches have been adopted by the CPO Association, Sherman Air Traffic Control, Corry CDC, VT-10, the Naval Hospital Petty Officer Second Class Association, NATTC, NASP Port Ops and the Blue Angel Park staff. You can contact these organizations to

volunteer at their specific location. Volunteers should bring sunscreen, hats, gloves and water. Families encouraged to participate. The cleanup is part of Ocean Conservancy’s larger strategy for Trash Free Seas, and is one of the many ways the organization is joining with others to help find answers and solutions to address existing ocean trash and eventually stop its flow into the ocean.

Maze part of Santa Rosa tour Story, photo from Beaches to Woodlands Tour

The 11th annual Beaches to Woodlands Tour of Santa Rosa County will feature nearly 40 events this fall, including a corn maze that honors two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson, a native of Bagdad. This year, Sharon and Trent Mathews, owners of Sweet Season Farms in Berrydale, decided to honor Watson, one of three Santa Rosa County and Milton High School natives on the PGA Tour (along with Boo Weekley and Heath Slocum), with a maze cut in his image. The design was created from a photograph of Watson that features his distinctive left-handed swing and signature visor. The self-guided Beaches to Woodlands tour spans an area that is known as “Florida’s Playground” because of its plentiful natural resources, which include rivers, trails, creeks, sugar white beaches, a state forest, rich farmlands and historical communities. “I feel honored to be represented in such a big way in my hometown,” said Watson, who has family still living in the area. “It’s unique and very special.” Watson approved the design and has donated promotional items to be used as giveaways. A portion of proceeds from this year’s maze will be donated to Bubba Watson’s charitable foundation. The Sweet Seasons maze

Golfer Bubba Watson is featured in this year’s maze at Sweet Season Farms in Berrydale.

will be open to the public on weekends Sept. 27 through Nov. 2 (except Oct. 31 for Halloween.) The Beaches to Woodlands Tour is presented by the Santa Rosa Tourist Development Council during the cooler fall “shoulder” season each year. Signature events feature the Jay Peanut Festival (Oct. 4-5); the Monarch Butterfly Festival (Oct. 3-4); the St. Rose of Lima International Fall Festival (Oct. 10-12); the Munson Community Heritage Festival (Oct. 1112); the West Florida Railroad Museum “Depot Days (Oct. 11) and the Navarre Beach Car, Truck & Bike Show (Oct. 18) headline the tour. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy Adventures Unlimited

Fall Zipline “Leaf Change Tours” (Sept. 27-Nov. 2) and the Florida Trails Hikes (Oct. 3-4). Sea life is the focus of the Sea Turtle Extravaganza (Oct. 11 and 25) and the Science “Spooktacular” by the Sea (Oct. 24-25). The annual Halloween event Boo at the Zoo (Oct. 18-19 and 25-26) returns this year as well. Area history is highlighted in the Arcadia Mill “Secrets of Santa Rosa: Archaeology and History in Your Backyard” series (Saturdays in October) and events at the Bagdad Village Museum (Saturdays in October).
