Two CID students rescue neardrowning victim at beach By Gary Nichols CID PAO

Two Center for Information Dominance (CID) Unit Corry Station students rescued a neardrowning victim at Pensacola Beach late Sept. 8. Information S y s t e m s Technician “A” school students ITSN Cameryn Cassell and ITSN Justin Harris were getting ready to board a bus about 7:30 p.m. to take them back to Corry Station when they heard shouts that someone was in trouble. It was past sunset, and the beach lifeguards were off duty. In the dim light, it took the Sailors a few moments to locate the swimmer. “I looked around and didn’t see anything at

first,” Cassell said. “Then I saw a head come up and then it went back down under, and then it stayed under for a while and then it came back up again.” Cassell, who grew up surfing in the Atlantic Ocean near his hometown of Hubert, N.C., recognized that someone was in imminent danger and immediately took action. He and Harris both raced into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico to render assistance to the struggling swimmer, who was about 150 yards offshore past the breakers. Cassell reached the victim first. He said the victim was underwater, and he had to swim down to retrieve him.

A group of military attachés from around the world visited NAS Pensacola on a familiarization tour of the air station Sept. 16-18. The United States hosts representatives of allied nations to visit bases throughout the nation;

NASP hosts these guests every three to four years. During their visit to Pensacola, the attaché s were briefed, given a tour of the station and its training classes and were also given the opportunity to enjoy some of Pensacola’s Southern hospitality as well. These high-ranking guests were able to interact and ask questions of those working with the Navy.

Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Rear Adm. Matthew Kohler, who toured with the group, said his favorite part of the visit was “watching them gain appreciation of how this great training facility has benefited not just the U.S. Navy, but their nations as they commit many Sailors to the training pipeline here.” Kohler was commissioned

National POW/MIA Day today (Sept. 21)

MWR employees brave storm to rescue missing sailboat

Towering seas, lightning and an overturned boat aren’t in the usual day plan at NAS Pensacola’s Bayou Grande Marina. But for Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) marina recreation aide supervisor Jack Weinzimmer, an ordinary day’s sailboat rental would turn into an extraordinary rescue and recovery situation July 30. When an active-duty Navy couple rented an 18foot Hunter sailboat from the marina at the Bayou Grande Yacht Club earlier in the day, it was business as usual. As Weinzimmer kept an eye on the weather conditions, he noticed the sea state worsening. At 2:30 p.m., as a squall line passed over NASP, the National Weather Service issued a severe weather warning for Escambia County. When Weinzimmer and coworker Jordan Morales were unable to contact the couple either by radio or cell phone, they decided to act. Launching

Federal Impact Aid surveys coming soon From Carissa Bergosh NASP School Liaison Officer

All NAS Pensacola members and civilian employees (including contractors) who are parents or guardians of school-age children attending public schools should be on the lookout for the Federal Impact Aid survey cards, which will be distributed Sept. 24. These cards will be sent home from school with your children. Data received from the Federal Impact Aid survey cards is a source of desperately needed funding for local schools. For schools to be awarded the maximum amount of funding available, all you have to do is fill out the card and return it to your CID from page 1

“Cassell got to him first and grabbed him as soon as he went underwater,” Harris said. “It was almost like something you’d see in a movie.” Fortunately the victim was still conscious, but began vomiting once he resurfaced. The swim back to the beach was challenging, with an outgoing rip current and reported surf of two to three feet in the Gulf of Mexico. “I put my arm around his chest and I started swimming back in, and that was a good 150 yards out,” Cassell said. “And the whole time I was swimming against the current, because he had gotten sucked out by a rip current and I was swimming against it the whole way back in.” Both Cassell and Harris brought the victim to shore. Within minutes, an emergency team had arrived. Station 13 Fire Rescue Officer in Charge Lt. Daniel Ackerman said his station responded to the call about the distressed swimmer, and that the Sailors bringing the victim safely back to the beach made all the difference in the outcome. “If the Sailors hadn’t been there, it would have definitely been a different situation because he was completely exhausted by the time they got him in,” he said.

your unselfish devotion,” he said. “This luncheon is a way to show our appreciation for your dedication and sacrifice. You are the keepers of the truth for many of our spouses, especially when you start talking to them about the stresses and uncertainty that are part of our lifestyle. So let us know how we can help you and arm you with answers to those hard questions and where you need support.” Ombudsmen are appointed by a command’s commanding officer (CO) and are considered a full member of the CO’s team, keeping families informed about what is going on with the service members, and be a point of contact in case of an emergency. This past August they were prepared to keep families informed as Hurricane Isaac approached the Gulf Coast. They also support

child’s school. Cards must be returned for the data to be collected that will qualify local schools for the additional funding that is offered under the Federal Impact Aid program. All military dependent and “federally connected” students in grades K12 are eligible. “Federally connected” children include those whose parents or guardians are federal civilian employees or contractors. The children of civilian employees and contractors who work at NAS Pensacola qualify as federally connected.

Concerned for their safety, Weinzimmer could easily imagine himself in the missing boaters’ place. “The main reason why we went is, I’d want someone looking for me if I was out there and that (weather) was happening.” Onboard the base, power outages, structural damages and downed trees had resulted from the thunderstorms. “The wind was howling; there was 55 mph winds and four-foot seas in the bay,” Weinzimmer recalled. “It was pretty nasty.

Just because a family doesn’t live near a Navy installation, or if a family’s service member is deployed, TAD or on an individual augmentation, it doesn’t lessen the command’s responsibility to ensuring they are supported.” The ombudsman program was originally established in 1970 by then Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt, who envisioned a program in which Navy spouses would be the liaison between the command and

So, heads up. Be on the lookout for the coming impact aid cards. With the severe budget cuts that have come to the district schools, impact aid is a source of needed funds. When you receive your cards, be diligent to fill them out and get them back to the schools. If for some reason you do not receive a card, contact your child’s school. The deadline for submitting the application is Jan. 31.

the boat where I couldn’t see four feet in front of me,” he said. “The hail and the wind; all that.” Weinzimmer and Morales had covered the intracoastal area from Bayou Chico to Pensacola Beach when a call came in. “We were out there about two hours before we actually got word they were at the ranger’s station, off Fort Pickens,” Weinzimmer said. “Upon finding the couple, they were not with the boat.” The storm’s winds had blown the couple over to Fort Pickens, where they disembarked and tied the craft to a post. The post then tore free in the storm, setting the sailboat adrift with no one aboard. The man who’d rented the sailboat offered to join Weinzimmer and

“In my experience, naval officers around the globe share a common bond and a connection with the sea, creating an almost instant rapport. This group was no exception. I personally loved meeting and sharing sea stories with this great group of naval officers and really enjoyed showing off this beautiful installation and all the fantastic stuff we do here.”

With the storm beginning to subside, the two righted the 18-foot Hunter and were able to tow it to Sherman Cove Marina. “It was still raining and lightning when we found it,” Weinzimmer said. “We weren’t going to make the trek back to Bayou Grande.” Weinzimmer, who is 18 years old, has worked for the base’s MWR department for about two years. He may find himself involved in ocean rescues again – Weinzimmer has joined the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG ) and will report to the USCG training center in Cape May, N.J., in November.

After 20 years, I am proud to be ‘The Sandwich Queen’ By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist

About a million years ago, I had a career, a briefcase, an office, a secretary and a view from the 24th floor. I did research, argued motions, interviewed clients and attended the firm’s holiday party. My name was on the wall in the lobby. But then, when I least expected it, something happened. That something was an incessant, unrelenting thing called life. Two years after being blindsided by love, I found myself sitting on my Navy husband’s bachelor couch in our dumpy base house, in a state that did not recognize my law license, nursing our new baby while watching Maury Povich interview people who had been abducted by aliens. At first it was kind of fun, getting to relive all the times I played house as a kid, except that I had to do the boring stuff too, such as making sandwiches and cleaning toilets. I never really thought it all through, and truly believed that I would get back to my career at some point. Seventeen years, eight moves and two more babies later, I’m still making sandwiches and cleaning toilets,

About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, the mother of three, has been a military spouse for 19 years (and running). Her humor column, “The Meat and Potatoes of Life,” appears weekly in newspapers and on Stripes Military Moms, a website associated with Stars and Stripes newspaper. She also writes columns for Military Spouse magazine and a blog at www.themeat andpotatoesoflife.com. Molinari and her family are currently stationed at Naval Station Mayport in Jacksonville, Fla.

and the opportunity to get my career back simply never came. In the meantime, I’ve discovered that long-term housewifery does not always provide one with the obvious sense of

achievement that a career offers. In fact, the daily drudgery of housework and mothering is highly susceptible to being completely taken for granted. We don’t get bonuses for sparkling floors, pay raises for fresh laundry, or promotions for perfectly steamed green beans. So, we veteran housewives must seize our ego boosts where we can get them. When my son, Hayden, started his sophomore year at his new school, I packed his lunch every day like I always had. But, I decided to bump it up a notch. My usual routine was to roll up three slices of deli chicken on two slices of whole wheat bread with a leaf of lettuce and a slice of Swiss cheese. To reward my son for working hard at football practice, I decided to double the meat, adding tender slices of ham and roast beef. Two slices of pepper jack and extra lettuce made the sandwich so thick that I had to put it into a quartsized storage bag. On our way home from football practice that evening, Hayden, who is firmly entrenched in that infuriating stage of teenagedom characterized by an almost complete lack of normal conversation,

said, “Hey Mom, I really liked that sandwich.” My heart nearly skipped a beat. Over the next couple weeks, I continued crafting thick, meaty sandwiches, sometimes substituting cheeses, adding spicy slices of pepperoni, or a fresh sub roll. Instead of waiting for accolades, I had taken to eagerly asking him how he liked the sandwich on our ride home from football practice. He would answer in typical teenage brevity, but always communicated his appreciation. Then one day, Hayden told me that his football buddy commented that he wished his mom made sandwiches like that. I couldn’t believe my ears and was exhilarated by my new sense of culinary superiority. Call me pathetic, but the seemingly insignificant compliments gave me a renewed sense of purpose, and a slight spring in my middle-aged step as I packed the lunches each morning. Sure, it’s true that the closest thing I have to an office has a washer and dryer in it. And yes, it is rather ironic that I used to have a secretary but am now secretary for the football team. And even though my name is no longer posted in

an office lobby, my name is the one my kids utter when they want a tissue, help with their homework, a snack, someone to hear about their day at school, or a hug. While I may never make senior partner of a law firm as I had planned more than 20 years ago, I have attained a status I never expected. I am “Head Nurse,” “Accountant,” General Manager,” “Commander in Chief of the House,” and now, “The Sandwich Queen.” Sure, my scepter may be a toilet bowl brush and my carriage a mini-van, but I don’t mind, because I know I am loved by my people.

CNRSE installations recognized for energy, water management efforts By Michael Maddox Region Southeast Public Affairs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Several installations across the Navy Region Southeast have recently been named winners of the Secretary of the Navy Energy and Water Management Awards in recognition of their energy and water conservation programs. Naval Support Activity (NSA) Panama City was awarded a top honor by being named a Platinum level award winner. Gold level winners were Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, NAS Jacksonville, Naval Station (NS) Mayport, Naval Submarine Base (NSB) Kings Bay, NS Guantanamo Bay, NAS Joint Reserve Base (JRB) Fort Worth, NSA Orlando, NAS Kingsville and Naval Construction Battalion Center (NCBC) Gulfport. Blue level winners included NAS Corpus Christi, NAS JRB New Orleans, NAS Key West, NAS Whiting Field and NAS Meridian. The annual awards are presented to commands that have made notable progress toward the Department of the Navy (DoN) goals to reduce energy and water consumption, increase use of renewable energy sources and construct sustainable facilities. The DoN energy

program evaluates and classifies the overall energy and water management performance of each installation. Awardees are categorized according to SecNav winners as platinum, gold and blue level achievement. “Being recognized as a leader in supporting SecNav’s goal of shrinking the Navy’s energy and water consumption footprint is a great honor and a testament to the base personnel’s commitment to being a ‘green’ team,” said Evelyn Baskin, the installation energy manager for Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast at NSA Panama City. “The SecNav recognition is a great honor reflecting daily boots-on-theground hard work,” said Baskin. “NSA Panama City’s energy program recent success is due to an effort in getting allhands onboard with our energy reduction and management program.” Baskin said their installation has become an energy champion through efforts such as mechanics practicing preventive maintenance to keep facili-

ties “tuned-up” and building energy monitors (BEMs) staying vigilant in reporting energy leaks and displaying energy awareness materials in their buildings. She added that purchasing Energy Star products and implementing energy reduction measures like installing programmable thermostats and high efficiency HVAC systems have also helped the base meet its energy reduction goals. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus will present the Platinum award to NSA Panama City officials during a ceremony at the U.S. Navy Memorial & Naval Heritage Center Oct. 3. The remainder of Navy Region Southeast installations is working hard to achieve similar results as a “culture of conservation” has taken root and continues to grow. Doug Mercer, director of Infrastructure Assessment for CNRSE, said that seeing every installation in the southeast region earn a SecNav award for energy and water conservation shows that meeting energy reduction

goals is a team effort. “We have come a long way in spreading the culture of energy conservation,” Mercer said. “More people are realizing they can make an individual contribution to our energy independence, and that the funding we reduce in our utility bills goes directly to the training and equipment needed to maintain the U.S. Navy as the preeminent force in the world.” “Those contributions have added up in the past several years as accolades for CNRSE installations have increased,” said Andrew Rubio, an energy projects engineer with the Energy Management Branch of Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NavFac) Southeast. “In 2007, less than 30 percent of region Southeast installations received any level of recognition. Since then, concerted efforts across the region southeast – at the installation and region level – emphasized the importance of the program piece, and shored up its key components at each installation,” said Rubio. “Fiscal Year 2010 was the first year that all Region Southeast installations were recognized for their efforts with a SecNav energy award level of blue or higher. This trend has continued and improves today.”

NAS Pensacola’s newest chief petty officers pinned Story, photo by Steve Vanderwerff NETC PAO

More than 200 military staff, friends and family gathered at Naval Aviation Schools Command’s (NASC) auditorium to watch the official pinning of some of the Navy’s newest chief petty officers during a ceremony onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola Sept. 14. During the event, 54 Sailors were promoted to the rank of chief petty officer (CPO) and joined all the new chief petty officers throughout the fleet and around the globe that day. Guest speaker, Naval Education and Training Command’s (NETC) Force Master Chief April Beldo, talked about what guides a chief to success. “Our mission, vision and guiding principles are an important part of the chief’s way of life. We all have had numerous opportunities to read them, however, there are a couple of points I think are especially important for our newest mess members – integrity and character,” she said. “In the guiding principles it’s noted that chief’s abide by an uncompromising

code of integrity, which is defined as the firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values and incorruptibility, an unimpaired condition and soundness – the quality or state of being complete or undivided. “We take full responsibility for our actions and keep our word. This sets a positive tone for the command and it unifies the mess and creates esprit de corps. Sounds simple enough? Well, we can’t take this for granted and we have to work at it daily. We have to be well aware of what we say and do at all time and it is our charter that we strive towards perfection.” According to Beldo, chiefs are on the job around the clock. “We all are chief petty officers 24 hours a day and we can’t afford for our credibility to be questioned by any Sailor. So, I’m challenging you at the end of each day to do a selfassessment. Were you honest in your dealings? Were you seen about the deckplates, training your relief? If you can answer these questions positively, then you’ve had a good day and are a worthy member of

our chief’s mess.” Beldo also reminded them to lead from the front by being active members of the mess and to never put themselves in a position where shipmates, senior or junior, question their character. “This is your time. I want you to embrace it, I want you to have fun and I want you to look forward to the days ahead. You are

now ‘The Chief,’ the backbone of the Navy,” said Beldo. “When you see something wrong in our mess, address it. If you see a Sailor out of order, correct it, whether they are from your command or not. They are all our Sailors. It’s all our responsibility to prepare them to be the next chief’s mess members. “Wherever I may be, I

will conduct myself in a manner that will never ever bring discredit upon our mess or this uniform, and I will expect the same from you.” Family members then pinned two gold fouled anchors to each newly appointed chief’s uniform, followed by their sponsors placing a chief’s combination cover on their heads. Afterward, they sang

“Anchors Aweigh.” The chief’s pinning ceremony is a special Navy tradition, which dates back to 1893, when the chief petty officer pay-grade was created. The ceremony signifies a new position of leadership and responsibility in the Navy. For more news from Naval Education and Training Command, visit www.navy.mil/local/cnet/.

NETC force master chief visits Monterey Story, photo by MC1(SW/AW) Nathan L. Guimont Center for Information Dominance Unit Monterey PAO

MONTEREY, Calif. – Naval Education and Training Command (NETC) Force Master Chief April Beldo visited with Sailors assigned to Center for Information Dominance Unit (CIDU) Monterey during an all-hands call Sept. 6. CIDU is the Cryptologic Technician Interpretive “A” school which trains and develops Navy linguists. After walking on stage, Beldo was welcomed by more than 600 Sailors reciting the “Sailor’s Creed.” After being introduced by CIDU Command Master Chief Loren Bailey, Beldo spoke about the pride she feels whenever she visits a command and meets with Sailors. “Hoo-yah Monterey, get some,” Beldo said. “Every time I arrive at a command and see Sailors who are motivated and dedicated and volunteered to wear the cloth of our nation, I get a shot of adrenaline. You raised your right hand because you wanted to, nobody came to your house, grabbed you and said, ‘You have to be a United States Sailor.’ You did that. You made that decision and I’m excited that each and every one of you did that very thing.” Beldo continued by saying why it’s important for them to stay focused on the task at hand and to stay away from the wrong group(s) of people. “Sometimes we have a master plan, but for some reason we

start heading down ‘Destruction Avenue’ and lose our focus,” she said. “If you happen to find yourself thinking about going down that avenue, I want you to remember; why you raised your right hand, the training you are going through, the time you have invested into your naval career, and the time your instructors have invested in you.” “Then say, what I tell all my Sailors, ‘You know what? It’s not even worth it. I think I’m going to get back on ‘Get Some Avenue,’ or ‘Be Successful Avenue,’ and if I hang out long enough, maybe someday I’ll be

on ‘Force Master Chief Boulevard.’ ” While fielding questions from the audience, Beldo explained some of the changes she had seen during her more than 29year career regarding women serving in the Navy. “When I attended boot camp in Orlando, Fla., there were only all-male divisions and all-female divisions,” she said. “Women weren’t able to serve on combatant ships, but were on tenders, and maybe some supply ships. But that all changed in 1994 when women were allowed to serve aboard aircraft carriers. So

now, I believe there are an abundance of opportunities for all women. “No matter what your diverse background is,” she continued, “there is a door that has a big sign over it called ‘Opportunity.’ You can do whatever you want to do as long as you stay focused and don’t let people tell you what you can’t do.” Afterward she took time to recognized CIDU’s chapter of the Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions (CSADD), thanking them for their dedication to helping eliminate sexual assault among the

ranks. Beldo asked the chapter’s president, SN Josie Walters, to step up to the stage so she could personally thank her for all of her hard work and devotion. “CSADD is an opportunity, another resource for us to use when we feel like there is nothing better for us to do except for things we know we shouldn’t be doing. You go to the CSADD meeting, hang out with the CSADD group, and I know they are doing some great things all across the country and all throughout our commands. I wanted to call you (Walters) up here and tell you personally, thank you for what you do.” CSADD is a peer mentoring program for active and reserve Sailors, Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) candidates and Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) cadets aimed at promoting good decision-making and leadership development at the most junior levels. At the conclusion of the allhands call, Beldo had these final words for the Navy’s future linguists. “Thank you for what you do each and every day,” she said. “When you wake up in the morning and you look at yourself you get to say, ‘It’s going to be a good day, because I made the decision to be part of a great organization and I have nothing but positive energy to give back to that organization.’ Do as you’re told, be at work on time, and wear this uniform proudly. That’s all you have to do.” For more news from Center for Information Dominance, visit www.navy.mil/local/corry/.

NAS Whiting Field commemorates attacks of 9/11 From NASWF PAO

Service members, fire fighters, security officers and civilian employees gathered at Naval Air Station Whiting Field’s command building to remember the lives lost and the courageous responders to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The quiet morning served as a respectful tribute to the nearly 3,000 lives lost during the collapse of New York City’s twin towers, the loss of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania and the crash into the Pentagon. Standing in ranks, members from all the commands on the base observed solemnly as Command Chaplain Cmdr. Charles Luff read “Psalm 37” to remind the audience that evil passes and good endures. He followed that with a request for a moment of silence and a short prayer to help honor the memory of those who fell that day. Base Commanding Officer Capt. Matthew Coughlin spoke about a small rock memorial to pay tribute to those killed on 9/11. He stressed the

words written thereon; “We serve because they cannot.” He said it is incumbent upon Americans to keep the memory of this day vivid in our collective consciousness. The emotions and tragedy of that day should not be lost to those who come after current service members.”I would ask you to keep the memory of 9/11 alive in the generations that follow. We cannot allow fading memories to become a pervasive threat to future Americans,” he stated. “I am honored and proud to serve with each of you here today. We must remain ever vigilant. We are here to serve because they cannot.” Following the conclusion of Coughlin’s speech, “Taps” was played throughout the base’s loudspeakers. Then AC1 Nina Buruca, MA1 Adam Turner and AB2 Ogarry Clarke filed out to perform morning colors. Once the flag was lowered to half-staff, Command Master Chief Rafael Rosado then presented Turner with a wreath to lay at the base of the flagpole.

The ceremony took less than 30 minutes, but the importance of the commemoration was not lost

on those attending. “The event this morning made me proud. It reminded me of the rea-

sons I joined in the first place,” said Buruca, who lived in New Jersey at the time of the attacks and

had family in New York City. “It was a trying time in my life. I’m glad we took time to remember.”

Whiting personnel have fun cleaning up local environment From NASWF PAO

Naval Air Station Whiting Field Staff Association members paddled down the Blackwater River recently to have a little fun, enhance camaraderie and help the environment all at the same time. The group, along with several family members and a couple of natural resource interns from the public works department, canoed down several miles of the river picking up assorted garbage to keep the river clean. The event is an annual project for the group, and generally nets several hundred pounds of garbage to be disposed of at more appropriate locations. First time participants Jennifer Brown and Rosario Flores worked with Ron Cherry in the environmental management division at public works while they are completing their studies in Natural Resource Conservation at the University of Florida. The two interns enjoyed the trip down the river and

called the cleanup “gratifying.” Flores emphasized the beneficial aspects of helping to keep the environment around your hometown clean. Flores is from Milton and Brown is from Pace. “It’s like cleaning up my home,” she said. “It was nice to be able to help maintain the river so others can enjoy it.”

“It is a perfect opportunity to have fun and do something for the community.” — Mike Flournoy cleanup coordinator The dozen or so bags the group collected included items such as inner tubes, flip flops, sun block bottles, cooler lids, clothing items, and of course, numerous cans and bottles. “I would definitely do it again,” Brown stressed.

“It’s a great thing to do. It protects the ecosystem and helps ensure its future.” The team was just one of many that go down the Blackwater River each year as part of the county’s annual cleanup program. The county and local canoe rental agencies encourage local paddlers to remove trash from the watershed each summer and several organizations from the base participate. The Whiting Field Chief Petty Officer Association held its trip down the river less than two weeks after the staff association. The staff team ate a well-deserved lunch at one of the beaches along the route. The group was then towed back to Whiting Park to complete the day. Even a dousing from a typical Florida afternoon thunderstorm did not dampen the enthusiasm for the participants. “It is a perfect opportunity to have fun and do something for the community,” Mike Flournoy, the coordinator for the event, stated. “We enjoy being able to help.”

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.

NASP youth visit United Cerebral Palsy Center From Patrice Ryan Training and Curriculum Specialist Corry Child and Youth Programs

The youth of the Corry Station and Naval Air Station Pensacola school-age care programs teamed up recently to bring some cheer to the patients at the United Cerebral Palsy Center in Pensacola. Approximately 30 young people, ranging in age from 10 to 13, participated in the festivities. The patients and children participated together in a parachute game with beach balls, a limbo activity and dancing. Smiles were abundant as a number of the youth assisted the patients, in their wheelchairs, to “duck” under the limbo stick and move their arms back and forth to the beat of the music. When it was time to say goodbye, many of the patients and youth exchanged hugs and promises to return again sometime. Some of the youths decorated a banner to leave behind as a holi-

Girl Scouts of past, present to gather for reunion Oct. 13 at UWF From Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle

“Make new friends, but keep the old” is a phrase from a song familiar to many. Women who were Girl Scouts will attest to the magnitude of these words at the Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle’s reunion from 9:30 a.m. to noon Oct. 13 at the University of West Florida Conference Center, 11000 University Parkway. The reunion will be hosted by Dr. Judy Bense, president of the University of West Florida. Bense is a former Girl Scout and the 2011 Women of Distinction Diamond Award recipient. WEAR TV-3 news anchor Sue Straughn, who is also a former Girl Scout and is the 1999 Women of Distinction Award recipient, will serve as the facilitator for the event. The event will provide opportunities for former Girl

Scouts to connect with each other and meet current members. Girl Scouting past, present and future will be highlighted through presentations, songs and celebration. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida awarded grants to each of the seven Girl Scout councils in Florida to support the 100th anniversary activities of the Girl Scouts. “We are honored to have the support of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida to allow us to share the rich history of Girl Scouting in Florida,” said Raslean M. Allen, Girl Scout Council of the Florida Panhandle Inc. chief executive officer. “We invite all women who were Girl Scouts to join us in this celebration,” said Frances Yeo, Girl Scouts 100th anniversary

committee volunteer and chair. “It does not matter where you participated, the sisterhood of Girl Scouts knows no boundaries.” Reservations are encouraged, but not required. To confirm your attendance, visit www.gscfp.org or call the council’s office at 434-1333 or 1 (800) 6243951. The deadline for reservations is Oct. 7. The alumnae reunion is one of the celebrations occurring throughout the country in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts. Posthumously awarded the Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama in June, Juliette Gordon Low formed the first Girl Scout troop March 12, 1912, with 18 girls in Savannah, Ga. The impact of one woman’s vision has spanned generations as

more than 59 million American women enjoyed Girl Scouting. Today, there are 3.2 million Girl Scouts – 2.3 million girl members and 890,000 adult members working primarily as volunteers. Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle is one of 112 chartered councils providing programming in communities across the country for girls. Currently, the exhibit “Pensacola: A Girl Scouting Place to Be” is open at the T.T. Wentworth Jr. Florida State Museum in downtown Pensacola. Displays include memorabilia covering several decades up to the present. The exhibit is designed to give visitors a sense of the impact Girl Scouts have had – and continue to have – in developing women leaders in Florida. The exhibit continues through Nov. 30.

Today, Sept. 21, Pearl Jam will be joined by Ben Folds Five, Gaslight Anthem, Trampled by Turtles and DJ Jazzy Jeff. The Foo Fighters are the headliners tomorrow, Sept. 22. Other big names scheduled to play include Joan Jett, Jimmy Cliff, Band of Horses, Bad Brains and Diplo.
