Safety First

Get Jet Ski Ready By Lonnie Scott

Personal Water Craft (PWC) or Jet Skis have become very popular items on waterways for summer fun. These boats are small, maneuverable, and capable of speeds in excess 65 mph. All you do is jump aboard, start it, twist the throttle and you are off like lightning. The next thing you know you're skimming across the water throwing spray each time you shift your body! Right? Just jumping on a Jet Ski and taking off isn’t quite all that is required to operate one of these machines. The Coast Guard and every state have specific requirements to operate a PWC. The Coast Guard considers a PWC to be a Class A inboard motor vessel and operators must adhere to the same Coast Guard regulations and standards as any other powerboats in this category. PWC operators must have a fire extinguisher on board their PWC, the PWC must be registered with the state and operators must obey the Nautical Rules of the Road. A boating course may be needed if you are unaware of the Nautical Rules. Course information is available online for each state at www.boat-ed.com/approved_boating_course. Most PWCs do not have running lights as all manufacturers recommend that they only be used during daylight. Many states ban the use of PWCs at night. Your state may require that Personal Floatation Devices (PFD) be worn at all times while on a PWC. Some states regulate the operation of personal watercraft within their borders by prohibiting them from specified lakes and boating areas, or by placing geographic restrictions on their use. Some states require an adult to be on board when a minor is operating the craft or may require completion of a boating safety course before a minor can legally operate a PWC. States may also regulate speed limits, noise limits, hours of operation, and the distance from other boats or objects that you may operate your PWC. Most states have mandatory boating laws that require safety certification for some or all boaters. Only one state (Alabama) requires an actual boat license. However, many people are unaware of state legal requirements. The web address that follows list all 50 states’ requirements. www.americasboatingcourse.com/abc_website/ state_boating_law

Like any other machine, a Jet Ski is no more dangerous than other water craft, however it is the way people operate them and an apparent lack of common courtesy that causes many of the problems. Some common bad practices with this craft are weaving between vessels, jumping wakes, spinning doughnuts, and radical changes of course. There are some inexperienced drivers out there who simply don't know that they can get into trouble by displaying improper behavior. Operator inexperience is responsible for many Jet Ski accidents. Before you operate your Jet Ski, check your state regulations; they all have specific sections addressing Jet Ski requirements. Read the owner's manual so

you understand the controls and features of your personal water craft, and take at least one lesson on its usage.

Follow these tips to make your water adventure a safer one. Know your limitations and those of your PWC. Never go out alone. Use the buddy system. Always wear a PFD. This includes passengers and skiers! Attach the stop lanyard to the PWC lanyard terminal (if applicable) and to your wrist or PFD. Always wear and attach to your wrist a small mouth-operated whistle. Wear proper riding gear (wet suits, goggles/sunglasses, gloves, and footwear/deck shoes). Wear wet suits to protect against abrasions, hypothermia and injuries from impact with the water surface. Glasses should be secured with safety straps. Never operate a PWC while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Check fuel levels before starting. Make sure you have enough fuel to return to the start point. Operators and passengers should always keep both feet on the footrest floor. Keep your hands, feet, hair, and clothing away from the pump intake. Make sure an approved fire extinguisher is aboard and in proper working order. Board your PWC according to manufacturer recommendations. In case of falls, use the directions in your owner’s manual for "righting" your PWC. Never operate your PWC in less than 2 feet of water. Pay close attention to your speed around swimming areas, beaches, marinas, docking areas, and waterfront areas. Many of the areas are posted with speed limits and “No Wake” signs. Keep a constant watch for swimmers, other vessels, and objects at all times. Never operate your PWC in or near surf zones. Never operate your PWC after dark - or before sunrise. Always follow markers and signs, and observe the navigational rules. Take your state’s boating course. Go out and enjoy the summer weather with some water funjust stay safe while you do!


Outdoor Dining for the Summer

Off the Beaten Path

By Kat Berghofer After a long, frosty winter and the ever-changing temperatures of spring, Fort Campbell gives a hearty “welcome back” to the beautiful days of SUMMER. Now that short-sleeve weather is upon us, it is time to enjoy these sunny days and balmy nights. Of course many of us spend a good deal of time at work, running errands, and taking care of the Family–but don’t forget to escape the confines of your home or workplace when you can! I assure you, there are wonderful ways to shake the dust off your seasonal wardrobe and to relax alfresco with friends and Family. For those living in and around Fort Campbell, there are many restaurants with outdoor dining to choose from. In my eyes, there is no better way to unwind after a long day than by soaking up the summer air and enjoying a delicious plate of food (plus dessert).

Outdoor restaurants and restaurants with patio seating offer some of the most stress-relieving and pleasant dining experiences possible. Let’s face it - it’s also nice to let someone else do the cooking once in a while. One of the most popular and well-known destinations in the Clarksville area is Canyon Road Steakhouse and Beer Garden. Located at 1525 Wilma Rudolph Boulevard, Canyon Road offers a warm and rustic atmosphere, along with dinner options that will leave your taste buds begging for more! On the outdoor patio, guests can take a seat underneath strands of hanging lights that add a splash of gusto to a relaxing and casual dining experience. Once you are seated, the steakhouse offers a variety of dishes for you to choose from,

such as Texas smoked ribs, blackened catfish, housemade soups, and a selection of sides and salads. Of course, Canyon Road is known for more than its delectable steakhouse menu. Imported weekly, the restaurant features handcrafted beer that is collected from local breweries, as well as those from “across the pond.” The beers include traditional British lagers, porters, ales, and stouts; bitter, brown, or mild. According to the owners, “We have them all!” Another great outdoor destination (and bang for your buck) is Rafferty’s Restaurant and Bar located at 2813 Wilma Rudolph Boulevard. This American cuisine favorite offers an extensive menu of appetizers, steaks and chops, burgers and sandwiches, soups and salads–even a Junior Menu for children ages 12 and under! Rafferty’s is a restaurant that can truly please an entire Family of diners. When you arrive, ask to be seated outside on the patio. The patio is full of character with cool and unique décor, in addition to a large fire pit that stands as a central focal point for outdoor diners. Rafferty’s is the epitome of an entertaining and immersive outdoor dining experience. If you have cravings for steakhouse options, vegetarian fare, or absolutely mouthwatering seafood all brought to you in the sweet summer air, you cannot pass up the Harbor Cafe. This superb restaurant is located at 2131 Lowes Drive. Known for having reasonable prices, Harbor Cafe is a great dinner option for a casual evening with friends or a treat for

the entire Family. Imagine a warm breeze wafting by as you enjoy the sights and sounds of a classic patio… did I mention the happy hour prices that span from 3 to 8 p.m.? Harbor Cafe is open until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11p.m. Friday and Saturday. Don’t miss your opportunity to try this hidden gem of Clarksville! Located here on Fort Campbell is Sportsman’s Lodge where you can sit on the deck overlooking Lake Taal. Sportsman’s Lodge is quietly nestled back in the woods in the Gate 10 area, near Outdoor Recreation. They offer German-American and International cuisine and are known for their award-winning schnitzel. You can fill your plate from their buffet or order from their menu. Sportsman’s Lodge is open for lunch Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday for dinner from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday and Saturday for dinner from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. (buffet open until 8 p.m.), and Sunday from12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Watch for the coming upgrades to make the deck a more pleasurable dining experience, Unfortunately, our busy schedules do not slow down to accommodate this perfect summer weather. In fact, they often become busier and more exciting! Regardless of the work, errands, studying, or other tasks happening during the day, be sure to give yourself (or your friends and Family) time to step outside to enjoy the day. Scheduling a lunch break or a dinner downtown may just be your ticket to relaxation. As you make plans for the coming weeks, be sure to keep these fantastic restaurant choices in mind!

ECFT Messy, tough, challenging, and fun are all words to describe the Warrior Challenge Obstacle Course. The next Eagle Challenge Fitness Tour (ECFT) event on June 21 is Fort Campbell’s second annual mud run. This year’s course will bring different obstacles, deeper mud pits and an all new set of fears to overcome! Keep in mind this is a challenging obstacle course, so bikes, strollers and pets will not be permitted. To conquer the Warrior Challenge, you will need to muscle, run, jump, climb and crawl your way through nearly six miles of muddy terrain. The course is located near the CROF Railroad Head on Market Garden and is designed for participants ages 16 and older. Younger participants will have a Junior Course available. Registration is $30 until June 19 and $40 on day of the event. The Junior Course will be free for participants. *Shoes or boots should be light weight. Double knot any laces and even use duct tape to hold them down. Short socks are preferred. Do not plan on keeping those either! You will probably want to throw them away after the race. *Dress in snug fitting clothes, because mud is heavy and you won’t want to lose any critical pieces. Avoid cotton if you can; it will absorb the water and mud and that will slow you down.

By Tara Goodson

*Long sleeves or tights can keep a few injuries away. Ensure you choose a compression type garment that won’t absorb the water and mud. *Be prepared to throw your shoes away. The clay mud in this area will never come out! Bring sandals or flip flops to slip on after the race. *Bring a dark towel and a change of clothes. You will want to get out of your muddy clothes as soon as possible. Registration is currently open at www.fortcampbellmwr.com/ECFT and is limited to the first 600 people ages 16 and up. Same day registration will be open from 6 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. if available but this event sells out quickly! Check-in begins at 6 a.m. and the event will start promptly at 8 a.m. with waves of 30 runners out of the gate in ten minute intervals. This will not be a timed event, but a clock will be provided for you to keep your own time.

The Flavors of My Life

In the Kitchen

by Marie “Mrs. Chingy” McLemore

To say that I am passionate about food is a true understatement. Words cannot express the joy, the pain and the passion that I feel when it comes to food. I should have realized that I was a foodie when I was about 9 years old - when I called my momma while she was visiting a friend to find out when she was coming home because I wanted to cook without her finding out. The ire that I faced was grudgingly dampened when she realized that my younger sister got to enjoy the food that I experimented with. I continued to enjoy food as I started spending more time in the kitchen while my momma cooked. I was soon called upon to prep the ingredients before she came home to cook after work. I became my mother’s assistant when she was making one of her delicious dishes from her native country, Thailand, or the southern foods she learned to cook while helping out my granny in the Family cafe. No ethnic cuisine is safe from experimentation, but the dishes that I always come back to are the foods of my childhood. Just thinking about cooking the food that my Family has created for generations fills me with a sense of pride, nostalgia and the burning desire to pursue my passion for food - just like the bird’s eye chili pepper can both burn and excite the taste buds. One of my favorite things to do is combine the two cultures on a plate. Just thinking about having a bowl of fragrant jasmine rice with fried chicken that has been dredged in seasoned flour along with my favorite Thai green papaya salad

(Som Tum) that has the subtle hint of garlic, Thai fish sauce (Nam Pla) and just the right amount of chili peppers will keep me coming back for more. When I’m sick or want something that will remind me of home I make a huge pot of Thai beef stew (Neur Toon). Don’t get me started on my fried rice! That is a common request at parties and I don’t know which satisfies me more...the prepping and cooking of this dish or watching my Family and close friends devour every grain of rice. I come home after every party with a large empty Tupperware container because I don’t know how to cook small meals and I always make sure to take extra containers since the returned containers usually come with a request for a refill! There are times I don’t want to create a cross-cultural experience for my palate and I stick to tried and true classics with my own personal magic like mac ‘n’ cheese, meatloaf and dishes of soul food. My mac ‘n’ cheese must be made from scratch and I must be the one that cooks it from start to finish since my husband complains that while he has watched me for years making this dish, his mac ‘n’ cheese doesn’t taste like mine. I love the aroma of a fresh pan of cornbread and every time I prepare the sweet potato dish my momma calls

“Candied Yams” it reminds me why I should cook this dish more often because it leaves my house fragrant with the scents of brown sugar, butter and orange zest. I have yet to perfect my granny’s rolls that my uncles continue to talk about in reverence, but I know one day I will and it will bring tears of joy to my eyes. My spice cabinet continues to be “under construction” because I have spices that can be used for a multitude of different ethnic cuisines. One of my guilty pleasures is finding out if one spice can be used for Indian, Thai, Middle Eastern and/or Southwest cuisine. Cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, different chili powders and curries are just a few of the spices that are the inspiration for the color palette in my house. When I was ready to paint my living room I took a bag of powdered turmeric to the paint store for them to make a custom color for me and it turned out beautiful. So don’t be afraid to experiment in your kitchen and enjoy the journey that it will take you on. Feel free to create fragrant memories with a few trials and errors in between. Buy a cookbook from a country you have longed to travel to and explore the land through the language of flavors, food and spices. Walk down memory lane by cooking dishes from your childhood and create a few new ones of your own. Your dishes may be savory or sweet but I know they will be delicious.


It's Carnival Time!

In the Know

By Mary Negron

Summer is the season for carnivals, and Fort Campbell is no stranger to such a fun event. Once again, we will host our annual USAA and MWR Independence Day Carnival at the Division Parade Field. This year’s carnival will feature amusement rides, skill games and traditional midway food and drinks from Wednesday, July 2 through Saturday, July 5. Our Independence Day festivities will be a celebration for all ages - featuring food, drinks, music, rides, games and fireworks for the grand finale. The USAA Fireworks will begin at dark, approximately 9 p.m. Everyone is welcome! The Carnival will have 20 major adult rides, 12 children’s rides, 8 food concessions and 25 skill games. • • •

Down the Block

By Jarrett Rogers Fort Campbell Schools will sponsor the annual Summer Food Service Program from June 5th through July 25, 2014 at three school locations: Andre’ Lucas Elementary, Barkley Elementary and Marshall Elementary Schools. Meals will be served Monday-Friday, breakfast 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and lunch 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., closed weekends and holidays. In addition, a Mobile Meal Van will travel from Village Commons at Gardner Hills Splash Park to

the Village Commons at Hammond Heights Splash Park between the hours of 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday-Friday for children who would like to enjoy a meal while playing in the park. This program is free for all children age 18 years and below; adults may purchase a breakfast meal for $2.25 and lunch for $3.25. The focus is to provide the community’s children with healthy and nutritious meals during the summer months. Children can simply stop by one of three school locations during meal hours and receive a free nutritious meal, or if you’re in the Garner Hills area between 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. or the Hammond Heights area from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., your child can take a break from playing and enjoy a nutritious meal free of charge.

Summer vacation is a much needed break from classroom studies for our children, but for some Families it can bring on financial hardship. The Summer Food Service Program provides an excellent relief for parents whose budgets are already stretched to the limit; it gives them a much a financial break from buying food to prepare meals and snacks for their children during summer break. Additionally, this is a great opportunity for working parents to ensure that their children are eating a balanced meal during the day, relieving them of the additional stress of planning and preparing meals for their children while they are out of school for summer vacation. Join us as we continue our efforts to end childhood obesity and offer every child a healthy and nutritious meal.
