Volunteers: The Backbone of Naval Station Rota you know everyone’s name doesn’t make it Mayberry per se. Mayberry is characterized by idyllic small town life, where people come together for one another. It’s no surprise then our base has an astonishing amount of volunteerism always going on. No matter what organization I’m visiting, from DGF classrooms to youth sports to even the post office, volunteers are there, selflessly providing essential support and services to the base. Equally amazing is the variety of volunteers, which seem to span every demographic group we have here. Dozens of single Sailors without children choose to spend time with kids through the After School Scholars program, while parents serve as homeroom moms and dads. The Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society draws retirees, spouses, active duty members and high school students to run its Thrift Shop and other programs. The Chapel’s religions education classes for adults and children are run by volunteers of all ages, while entire families get together to exercise pets, clean cages and maintain the facilities at the Rota Animal Welfare League. The Naval Hospital, Red Cross, MWR Youth Sports, Rota Tiburones Swim Team, ASPIRE, DGF athletic teams and even the Legal Office, through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program all rely on the efforts of volunteers. If I missed

Hola Rota. As the weather turns fair, I hope you enjoyed your Easter weekend and had a chance to spend it with friends and loved ones. One aspect I absolutely enjoy about the NAVSTA community is our sense of “togetherness.� I believe this is THE best military community to be a part of, and not just because of the nice weather. I would argue it’s because of the “Mayberry� phenomenon. What is the “Mayberry� phenomenon? I can’t define it for myself, but you certainly know CAPT. WILLIAM F. MOSK COMNAVACTS, SPAIN it when you see it. You can see it by the ball fields where volunteers from the community are helping to coach. You can hear it during Radiothon, and know the Air Force is at it again with “In the Navy.� You could even feel it during the Easter Egg hunt, where every place you looked, you knew at least someone. But the “Mayberry� phenomenon� shouldn’t be confused with the “Cheers� syndrome. Just because

key volunteers, it’s because there’s not enough space in the Coastline, or for that matter not enough ink. But you get the idea, the list goes on and on and on. Even more compelling than the variety of our volunteers, is their willingness to help in different areas. Dozens of volunteers work with two, three or more organizations on base! And if you’re new to Rota, or are just looking for a way to put your skills to use while helping others, I encourage you to contact the Fleet and Family Support Center, which coordinates volunteer placement throughout the base, at 727-3232 and explore the opportunities available. You’ll be glad you did, and you’ll be helping your community at the same time. Former President George Bush once said, “Service is never a simple act; it's about sacrifice for others and about accomplishment for ourselves, about reaching out, one person to another, about all our choices gathered together as a country.� I believe that volunteering for causes and organizations outside of our normal everyday lives enable us to become a stronger military community, one worth being a part of. So, enjoy the spring weather, and look for opportunities to help serve the Rota community. Hasta luego - Skipper

LEGAL CORNER An E-5 appeared for Captain's Mast on March 10 for violation of UCMJ Article 120 (indecent conduct). He was awarded reduction in rate to E4, 45 days of restriction and 45 days of extra duties and forfeiture of one-half month's pay per month for two months.

The Consequences of Drinking and Driving: Plain and Simple

S B MC (SW) P C S  L. .. J A. G P B J H, C

Since the start of the New Year, Naval Station Rota has seen an increase in the amount of DUI's. To put this in perspective, in calendar year 2009, the Rota community had five, while this year, there have been seven. "I am not liking this trend at all," said NAVSTA Commanding Officer, Capt. Bill Mosk. "I think we have been very lucky in dodging the bullet in regards to a serious injury or even worse, a fatality." Since most drinking occurs out in town and is where most of the driving occurs most, a majority of DUI arrests are made by Spanish authorities. “A majority of locations in the States is .08. While in Spain, the legal limit for drinking is .05. That is much lower and could be one drink,” said Regional Legal Service Officer, Lt. Cmdr Todd Kline. “It is very important for people to know that at .05 you could be found legally intoxicated and charged under their criminal system.” But what are the consequences of getting a DUI here in Spain either on or off base? There are many consequences to getting a DUI. For example, the Kingdom of Spain has a sliding scale. So the more content of alcohol you have in your blood, your BAC, the more trouble you can be in, so you can actually incur more consequences. “Depending on where the arrest is, because each town is different, you will be looking at very significant, steep fines anywhere from 800 to 2,000 euros,” said Kline. “You can face up to month of community service that you will be required to take leave to actually complete, potential jail time, an automatic suspension of your license for eight months and that is for basically being arrested.” Inside the gate, things are a little bit different because the military has control. First administratively, whether military or civilian, you can expect for your license to suspended for 12 months. For those living off base, imagine yourself walking to and from work or taking a cab, which if you do, is going to be prohibitively expensive. One aspect most people do not know is that you will be put on legal hold. Unlike some of the other countries in Europe, the United States has a specific treaty with the Spanish which is in addition to our NATO Status of Forces Agreement. Kline said this agreement requires any person who runs afoul of the Spanish legal system, whether it is civilly for a personal complaint, or criminally, is required to stay in Spain and can not leave the country until their entire case is either dismissed, or if they receive some kind of sentence, they complete it. “Worse case example, we have had people on legal hold for two years, not able to leave,” said Mosk. Kline also said it seems the shorter the time period people are in Rota, such as people who are on temporary duty or passing through, they ended up getting stuck here even longer. “We have had people come here for two days and they are stuck here for two years because they decided to drink too much out in town and punch a cop,” said Kline. Mosk said information is key in getting this problem under control which is why all military personnel assigned to Rota attended a mandatory safety stand down to get information on the consequences, and if people think they may have a problem to go get help. “I do not think you can hear this enough,” said Mosk. “Information on these topics is paramount and we need to make sure our community is informed.” Mosk also said with the weather getting nice and feria season right around the corner, be prepared for sobriety and DUI check points outside in the local community as well as at the controls points on base. "Be very careful when you consume alcohol," said Mosk. “If you are going to drink, do not drive; plain and simple. You will get checked, and if you are above the limit, you will face these consequences.” Kline also offered his personal advice. He said if he is going Continued on Page 5

to be out drinking, he doesn’t take his car out, getting rid of the possibility of driving drunk. "You shouldn't trust yourself to make the right decisions or the same decisions as when you are sober,” he said. “I am not waiting to see how much I drank, and then maybe I will take a cab home because if I never have my car with me, I never have to have the option of taking it home. I don't have to trust myself to make the right decision when I have actually been drinking. Because if I can make the same decision, then nobody would ever get in trouble. The consequences for DUI’s are very severe. In today’s Navy, whether it be Non Judicial Punishment, civilian conviction, or court martial, the Navy is very competitive. Not only are you putting your life and other lives in your hands on the road, but you are also taking your career in your own hands. “We are an all volunteer force,” said Mosk. “We serve at the behest of the American public and we are responsible to the public for winning our nations wars. We are the finest military this planet has ever seen, the problem is DUI's and alcohol related incidents diminish our fighting effectiveness and tarnish our reputation of our forces. We have to do better. Plain and simple."

Driving while intoxicated is a crime that can destroy a military career. Worse yet, it can destroy your life or the lives of others. Master Sgt. Jeffrey Shelton, 725th Air Mobility Squadron Safety Superintendent, understands how important it is to keep the Airmen of the 725th from making a bad decision while intoxicated. “My job is prevention,” said Shelton. “We have incorporated quite a few programs through the years to keep our Airmen from doing anything criminal, which is drinking and driving. But we have to change these programs up. People get complacent, they hear the same thing over and over again, so we have to throw a mix in and incorporate our own unique ideas.” One program the Air Force here has implemented is the “725-Get-A-Ride” card. All Airmen must be in possession of this card at all times which gives phone numbers to Taxi’s in Rota and Puerto, as well as the numbers for the Air Mobility Command Center or Maintenance Operation Center, which are manned 24 hours a day. A ride will be dispatched to the caller so they do not get behind the wheel and make that bad decision which could change their life forever. Spot checks are done randomly to guarantee Airmen have their card and it stays with them their entire tour at Rota. Another program is Airmen Against Drunk Drivers, a group of dedicated Airmen and Non-Commissioned Officers’s who volunteer their time to ensure there are rides for those that request them.

someone who needs a ride, they look on the list to see who is on call and sends that person to pick them up. “The nice thing about being in a squadron of only about 200, as opposed to a mobility wing of thousands, is we are part of a family,” said Shelton. “We have to look out for our brothers and sisters.” The 725th AMS also implemented the Safety Office and Commanders Program. This allows a person to contact the Safety Superintendent or commander personally at which point they will ensure the Airman gets home safe without any repercussions. “Our door is always open,” said Shelton. “We just want to make sure everyone knows they have options besides getting inside their vehicle and doing something stupid.” Lt. Col. Scott Gaab, commander 725th AMS, says Airmen are a precious resource and the squadron will do everything to protect them and their families. “Our programs are designed around the wingman concept… that is, Airmen taking care of Airmen,” said Gaab. “If one of our squadron members makes a bad decision and gets hurt, we suffer as a unit. Safety is paramount both on and off duty and it has to be everyone’s priority. When it comes to combating drinking and driving, safety begins with having a plan and making the good decision before you step foot out the door.” One very successful program helping Airmen establish that plan is the “Go, No-Go Program.” Simply put, if you go

out in Rota, you must have 10 euros in your pocket. If you go out in Puerto, you must have 20 euros in your pocket. If you do not have the 10 or 20 euros, which is put aside for a taxi ride home if need be, then it is a No-Go and you shouldn’t be going out. But with the approaching Feria season, the Air Force is even stepping it up a notch. Senior NCO’s will be more visible; getting together to police the Feria's and help make sure Airmen are taken care of. “Many of these young Airmen come from the States where you had last call as a signal to prepare yourself to go home,” said Shelton. “There is no last call in Spain. Here you can drink until the break of dawn and that is not a good thing, especially for a young kid who has never been away from home.” The 725th AMS hopes through their education and prevention programs, they will save lives and keep their missions going by preventing Airmen from making a bad decision. “It doesn’t matter if you are a Marine, in the Navy or the Air Force, but if you see somebody out there that needs help, offer your assistance,” said Shelton. “Our programs are not just for us; our programs are for anybody on this base that needs help. Let them know if they need anything from the Air Force, our hands are open to grasp and pull somebody up when they need help and maybe we can prevent someone from making that bad decision.”

MWR: The Fun Alternative to Drinking and Driving S B J S, MWR M D

Many who are either deployed or permanently stationed in Rota find the local nightlife and sherry wine irresistible. Through its numerous programs and facilities, Naval Station Rota’s Morale Welfare and Recreation Department promotes a healthy, active lifestyle and encourages military and civilians to enjoy these indulgences in moderation. MWR knows the importance of staying active and keeping busy in a place away from familiar surroundings. MWR offers entertainment, outdoor activities, sports and fitness, youth programs, dining and trips and all the information and gear you would need to plan your own excursions. MWR facilities strive to offer safe alternatives to the “party” scene by offering many events on Friday nights or the weekends to deter patrons from going out to the bars or give them other options. "It's unfortunate some people literally 'party' their tour away,” said Scott Jungk, Rota MWR director. “Rota is one of the gems of the U.S. Navy - a place where one can enjoy some of the best sightseeing, culture, music and food that can be found anywhere.” Recently, MWR hosted a weight lifting competition on a Friday night. Recreation Specialist and Fitness Instructor Zina “Zee” Herb said, “We promote healthy lifestyles by encouraging an ‘everything in moderation’ attitude and we also teach you are responsible for ‘you’ in what you put into your body, whether it is food, alcohol or substances. You need to take care of you and be responsible for your choices.” MWR also has a designated driver program at our facilities in which the designated driver receives non-alcohol drinks free of charge. Our events focus on health and wellness or family oriented activities. We offer cooking, jewelry, and exercise classes and also sports and family events. When our events involve alcohol consumption, we encourage our patrons to use a designated driver. Morale Welfare and Recreation wants its patrons to enjoy all the services we offer in the safest way possible. “I'm glad to say that I think the 'partiers' are the exception, not the rule,” said Jungk. “I've seen so many members of our community make the best of their tours - enjoying the culture, working on their personal fitness, and making great contributions inside and outside the gate - and MWR takes great pride in the role that we play in these improvements."

SARP: Puts Troubled Service Members on Road to Recovery S���� ��� P���� B� (SW) P��� C���

It is Friday night and you and your friends are going out on the Rota crawlâ&#x20AC;Ś again. Your job performance is slipping and you think your career might be in jeopardy. What do you do? Where do you go for help? One place is the Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program at U.S. Naval Hospital Rota, Spain. SARPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to improve operational readiness, promote healthy lifestyles and treat problems from alcohol and substance abuse. They use a multidisciplinary approach to the assessment and treatment of substance-related problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here in Rota I screen service members of all branches, dependents over the age of 18, retirees and DOD employees for Alcohol and other Drug use,â&#x20AC;? said USNHRS SARP Counselor, Legistic Specialist 1st Class (SW/AW) VirLisa Covington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I find they have an unhealthy habit of use, I offer and give that treatment.â&#x20AC;? Treatment currently offered at Rota is screenings, IMPACT and continuing care. Typically, the people she sees have had an incident and are ordered to be screened. SARP helps Sailors if they are ready to change and open to suggestions. It gives people theoretical tools which will help them gain sobriety. If the drug is alcohol, the tools will allow them to refrain from incurring further alcohol related incidents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This helps in three ways. It allows the client to be healthier and acquire a longer life expectancy,â&#x20AC;? said Covington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It also allows the client to fulfill his or her job requirements and excel in their career.â&#x20AC;? For the military member, a successful completion of treatment and consistent implementation of his/her sobriety plan directly influences unit morale, command readiness and mission accomplishment.

When children celebrate any occasion, they do so without a care in the world, as long as the celebration is done just like last year. Traditions are learned and kept even without realizing the significance of the tradition. Woe to the parents who change things. Imagine Easter without eggs, Easter baskets or a new Easter dress. I asked the youth what Easter eggs were all about and they guessed it to be a reference to new life in Christ. This is the meaning the Easter egg has taken on for Christians today. However, the Easter egg comes from a pagan origin - northern Europeans celebrating spring and fertility. The Easter bunny may have its roots in paganism as well. The story goes that a goddess rescued an injured bird and turned it into a rabbit that could lay eggs CHAPLAIN LYNN CHRISTENSEN of every color in the rainbow. Later the rabbit off ended the goddess and was banished to the realm of the sky, only able to return to earth once a year to lay its colored eggs. There are other Christian symbols from secular or pagan origins. A symbol once pagan does not necessarily make it wrong or evil. Think of it this way, the symbol was baptized (washed) for Christian use as a Christian is cleansed in Holy Baptism.

Consider the “butterfly” which has been a Christian symbol for the resurrection. Why a butterfly? It appears dead in a cocoon but breaks forth in new life, beautiful and able to do what it couldn’t before. Like the Christian belief in the resurrection of the dead, there is life after death, new life that is beautiful and perfect. Many have tried to explain the adoption of pagan symbols as an attempt by Christians to fool the non-believers into unknowingly becoming Christian. In reality, it is more likely an attempt by the church to hold to their celebrations of Easter (or any Christian Holy-Day) in conjunction with pagan celebrations in order to remain undetected. Presently the church is allowed a freedom to celebrate without fear of reprisal. Traditions continue and I would urge you to consider them a good thing. There are times in our lives to reconsider and correct actions, but there are times to rejoice in the remembrance and traditions that have stood the test of time. Any celebration or tradition should, from a Christian point of view, point to Christ, His promises, and His redeeming work. Doing so will help you celebrate with proper thanksgiving and a freedom to do so in good conscience. If you would like to speak with a chaplain for any reason please call the Religious Ministries Department at 727-2161.

Celebrate Earth Week: Be an Environmental Hero S B G G, NAVSTA PWD E D

In the spring of 1970, U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin called for an environmental teach-in, or Earth Day, to be held on April 22, 1970. More than 20 million people participated that year. Fast-forward 40 years and Earth Day is now observed by more than 500 million people and national governments in 175 countries. The Naval Station Rota Community officially starts its Earth Week with an opening ceremony, scheduled for 12:30 p.m. April 19 in the NEX Lobby, which will be Rota’s Earth Week Headquarter. This years Earth Week theme is “EMS Makes Everyday Earth Day at NAVSTA Rota.” During the week, people can stop by for event information, see Earth Day booths, prizes, signup for giveaways and view living green exhibits. “This Earth Day, be an environmental hero for your children, co-works and friends,” said Gay Gates, Natural and Cultural Resources Manager. “Do your part in keeping environmental awareness and practices alive in your community. Little things done on a daily basis can influence worldwide change; conserve energy and fresh water, recycle,

and doing your part to reduce pollution and waste.” PWD Environmental Department has many events scheduled for April and Earth Week starting with the annual You “CAN” contest, which runs April 12 – 19. “This year we have expanded the contest to include two categories – aluminum cans and plastic bottles,” said Gates. “So, start putting your team together and get a head start on collecting your bottles and cans.” The winning teams for each category wins 10 Pizzas. On April 23, departments, tenant commands and residents are invited to take part in the base-wide clean-up. Earth Week celebrations end with the 5K “Race for the Planet”, hosted by NAVSTA Public Works Officer, Cmdr. Gordie Meyer . The race starts at Sea View Pines at 11 a.m. Sign up at the Fitness Center or Earth Week Headquarters to reserve your place in the Race for the Planet.

NEW ORLEANS (NNS) -- The Sexual Assault Response Coordinator summit hosted by the Department of the Navy came to a close in New Orleans March 26. The summit was held to bring awareness to the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program, which replaced the former Sexual Assault Victim Intervention program in November 2009. One in every five female Sailors or Marines is a victim of some sort of sexual assault, and one in 15 - six out of every 100 women are raped, said Robert O. Work, under secretary of the Navy. "We need to get serious about our efforts. We need to tell the women in our service that they are not the problem, that the people who commit this crime are the problem," he said. More than 200 personnel, including SARC representatives, and members of the Navy and Marine Corps medical, legal and chaplain communities attended the five-day conference to participate in training, lectures and group discussions on the newly-established SAPR program. "A small percentage of Sailors are actually perpetrators," said Rear Adm. Michael Browne, director of personal readiness and

community support. Browne also said most service members really want to do the right thing, and that's why the program is focusing heavily on bystander intervention. "It's important for shipmates to take care of shipmates," said Browne. During the conference, those in attendance also heard compelling firsthand stories from two victims of sexual assault in the military. "With my assault, it (the summit) has helped me by allowing me to spread my message," said Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Summer Kimmel-Borges, a victim and SAPR representative. "Being able to meet with people like the MCPON and other senior leaders shows me how seriously they are taking this issue, and it's been a great experience." As the summit comes to a close, the large group is currently split into smaller groups for more specialized training. One track of lectures and discussion activities was designed for SARCs and the other for non-SARCs. For more information on the SAPR program, contact Janet Harris, Naval Rota, Spain SARC at the FFSC, at 727-2121.

Supervisor’s Guide to Sexual Assault Response Communication Guidelines for Dealing with Victims of Sexual Assault B J H, FFSC SARC

If you believe someone is about to disclose a sexual assault to you, it’s okay to stop them and make them aware of the options available to them. Supervisors, if you are approached by someone who falls under your direct supervision, here are some guidelines to help you assist that person: Let me stop you for a moment. I want you to know I’m here for you and ready to listen if you need help, but I don’t want you to lose any options that may be available to you by disclosing too much information to me at this time. If you think you might like to speak to the Sexual Assault Response Coordinator before we continue this discussion, I can put you in touch with him/her immediately. Just know if you disclose a sexual assault to me, I will have to report that assault to law enforcement.

Please remember the medical well-being and safety of the victim is top priorities. A victim can get medical treatment and still maintain their confidential option. Only Military are eligible for restricted reports. Civilians and Military are eligible for unrestricted reports. If you receive a report of sexual assault from someone that does not fall under your direct line of supervision, Restricted Reporting may still be an option. Restricted Reports are confidential and are not investigated by SFS, JAG, or NCIS. For information about training and how you can start to change your part of the world call Janet Harris, the FFSC Sexual Assault Response Coordinator at 727-3232 for more information.

-Ensure immediate medical needs are taken care of -Ensure the person is safe -Contact the SARC -Find out if they want to speak to someone of the same gender -Make good eye contact and be aware of you body language -Be aware of the person’s need for personal space -Ensure a “need to know basis” is being upheld -Ensure all personnel know how to handle sexual assault situations -Say “I’m sorry this happened to you” -Remind the victim it is not their fault and they did not deserve it -Don't touch or reach for the victim -Don't let the victim eat or drink anything -Don't let the victim go off by themselves for long periods of time -Don't question the victim or press for details surrounding the assault

NAVSTA Fire Holds Carwash for NMCRS Fund Drive S  P B T R, NAVSTA F D.

Fire and Emergency Services Department teamed with the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society March 19 to sponsor a car wash and barbecue in an effort to raise money for this worthwhile cause. Although the weather didn’t quite cooperate, and there were other events going on throughout the base, the Fire Department was still able to raise almost $400 bringing the Department’s grand total to over $1250. “I was really please with the level of commitment our guys had this year” said Fire Chief Timothy Ybarra. “Last year’s total was only about $400 and this year we have already raised over $1,200. The majority of the firefighters brought their families and spent their day off trying to raise money for NMCRS. I think that says a lot about the type of leaders we have in our department.” The NMCRS runs through April 15.

AFN Raises Thousands for NMCRS During Radiothon 2010 S B MC A A, AFN R

The American Forces Network Rota raised more than $5,700 for the Navy/Marine Corps Relief Society during its annual Radiothon’s March 25-26. For the last 20 years, Radiothon has been the largest NMCRS fund drive event at Naval

Station Rota. The event allows the community to pledge money to play a song of their choice or to bump off any other pledged song. “Radiothon is an outstanding event,” said Cpl. Amber Williams, Radiothon Disc Jockey. “It gets the entire base involved and the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society gets a ton of money for songs that I play all day.” Williams also said she was glad to be a part of the fundraising to help her fellow service members. “The Society helps Sailors and Marines fleet-wide every year, all year long, in times of emergencies and when they’re in a bind,” she said. “I don’t think we could do without them. They’ve been really helpful and I’m glad to be a part of this event to help them to help us.” Rota’s NMCRS Director June Brennan said Radiothon is typically a fun way to end the month-long drive. However, the fund drive has been extended through April 15. “This is the time of year when we take things seriously,” she said. “We need the funding in order to be able to help people.” In 2009, the society helped one in every six Sailors and Marines providing more than $47 million dollars worth of assistance. “We have a lot of facets,” Brennan said. “It ranges from baby layettes to visiting nurses. We do combat casualty assistance, and of course, the run-of-the-mill car repairs, emergency leave, household set-ups, pay issues and other things we help with.” As of Radiothon, Rota has raised more than $39,500, but Rota personnel can continue to donate through fundraisers or personal donations. For more information, contact your command’s NMCRS key person or call the society at 727-1613.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (NNS) -- Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 7 Air Detachment are improving roads and installing engineering controls to improve living conditions for the more than 40,000 residents of Camp Petionville, an Internally Displaced Persons camp in Port-au-Prince. The engineering work is part of a larger IDP camp improvement program involving eight other camps identified by Joint Task Force Haiti J7 engineers as needing road and engineering control improvements to mitigate the effects of the pending rainy season that historically begins in mid-April. "The natural terrain mixed with the numerous impermeable living structures created a situation that needed immediate action," said Camp Petionville project supervisor, Navy Lt. Jason Killian, a Civil Engineer Corps officer deployed to JTF-Haiti via Naval Facilities Engineering Command Washington. "The engineering mitigations will save lives and reduce the overall number of people that need to be relocated by over 17,000." According to relief workers running Camp Petionville, the Seabees are exactly what the earthquake survivors need to prepare for the rain. "The Seabees are the wheels, horsepower and expertise needed to save lives here," said Sean Penn, head of J/P Haitian Relief Organization, the group running Camp Petionville. Camp Petionville is situated on the base of steep terrain common throughout Petionville, a suburb of Port-auPrince where the Petionville Club, a nine-hole golf and resort club, resides. The improvement suggestions come from assessments made by JTF-Haiti engineering experts comprised of NAVFAC, Army Corps of Engineers, Air Fore civil engineers, and the Seabees themselves.

the cooperation of the Haitian government, are working feverishly to improve the contours of the land to better handle the impact that Haiti's rainy season will have on Camp Petionville. "The Seabees are actualizing the foundation [of camp improvements] laid forth by the U.S. military to improve this camp," said Penn. One of the assets the Seabees, who serve primarily as advisors and mentors to other engineering assets at Camp Petionville, is an all-Haitian labor force generated by NGO-run "cashfor-work" program enabling local Haitians to perform more detailed engineering work like digging drainage ditches and marking paths for road improvements throughout the campsite. "We're glad to be able to contribute on multiple levels of this project," said Builder 2nd Class Thomas Camara, project crew leader for NMCB 7's Petionville group. "And, that includes mentoring the crews of Haitians to ensure they are doing the work properly and to engineer design." By utilizing the empowering cash-for-work program, local Haitians are not only helping their fellow countrymen prepare for the upcoming rainy season, they are also helping to stimulate their own economy. Throughout the camp, residents have grown to embrace the Seabees when they see them make tangible improvements to their new, temporary homes every day. They work side-byside validating the Seabee motto of "With compassion for others, we build, we fight, for peace with freedom." Penn, for one, believes in the Seabees. "[They] are investing in prevention instead of responding to death," said Penn, "and right now, down in our camp the Seabees are the dream of what a humanitarian mission is." The Seabees' work ethic is something noticed by more than just J/P HRO and the Haitians. "The Seabees are having a huge impact here," said Maj. Gen. Simeon Trombitas, deputy commanding general, JTF-Haiti. "They're the face of America here, and they're saving lives every day."

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Commander, Navy Installations Command, Vice Adm. Michael C. Vitale, recently honored Naval Station Rota, Spain and 14 other installation’s Navy Gateway Inns and Suites by presenting the coveted Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt award for housing and lodging management. The Secretary of the Navy established the Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt award in 1974 to recognize commands that achieve the highest level of service standards. NGIS operations can earn a three, four or five-star rating based on the quality of facilities, amenities, service and financial management. Each year, only half of the Navy installations are inspected. Only commands attaining a five-star rating are recognized as award winners. “This award is a reflection of the great job our NGIS staff has done,” said Bob Crist, NAVSTA housing director. “Lisa Kallio, our NGIS director, along with her predecessor Tony Cantillo, and the rest of the Spanish staff, are the people who always want to make visitors feel like they are at home while away from home – this award validates their efforts.” This year, of the 40 installations inspected, 15 installations met the five-star Zumwalt accreditation standards, including NAVSTA Rota. A Five-Star rating is awarded for the overall excellence of an installation’s entire NGIS operation, including enlisted and officer quarters, distinguished visitor quarters and flag officer quarters. “The award identifies to the customer and the employee what the goal is. It sets a standard and gives the Installations a target to shoot for. It starts everywhere from the condition of the facilities to what amenities are offered to how you take of your customers,” said Ed Cannon, CNIC Fleet Readiness Program Manager. “This is one aspect of fleet readiness, we are trying to take care of Sailors, family members and other military service members. It’s part of the overall package. You can make sure that Sailors are relaxed when ashore by taking care of their accommodations, it’s one less thing for them to worry about and helps increase their readiness.” @

“Yours is not an easy job,” said Vitale to the NGIS employees during the award ceremony. “It’s a 365 day operation with a lot going on behind the scenes from the front desk to the back office to maintenance and janitorial to management. You are frequently the first people to meet our Sailors when they report in or when they return back from deployment.” Vitale praised the effect NGIS has had by upping the bar for other aspects of Fleet and Family readiness. “This feels real good and is well deserved,” said Kallio. “The staff comes in and works hard on a daily basis. They do it, not for the recognition, but because they love what they do. It feels like a family when you walk in here and it is because of the staff that makes it feel that way.”

OHA Survey Coming Soon to Rota S B L. B T, NAVSTA R PAO

All military members who reside in privately leased houses in Spain and receive an Overseas Housing Allowance have the opportunity to complete the 2010 OHA and Recurring Maintenance Survey starting mid-April. The survey will be available April 15 through May 15 at the following internet address: https://www.defensetravel.dod. mil/oha/survey/aprum2.html. “The Overseas Housing Allowance is a valuable entitlement for military members who are stationed in Spain,” said Lt. Deborah.Neuhaus, NAVSTA acting admin officer. “The time and effort spent answering the survey questions will enable the Department of Defense to ensure we are getting the right amount of OHA. Therefore, we need everyone who qualifies for OHA to participate in this survey.” Participants will be asked to provide the average monthly cost of utilities and routine maintenance. No outside contractors or DoD civilians will be involved in the survey, and private

homeowners do not need to take this survey, as historically their expense data is different from renters upon which the program is based. To complete the survey, respondents should have actual bills or records of their utility expenses and maintenance expenses for the last 12 months. They will be expected to compute a monthly average for each of these expenses. Respondents may take the survey at home with their spouses and should make every effort to reflect actual incurred expenses. The data will be used to compute scientifically accurate OHA allowances for military personnel in Spain, so accuracy in completing the survey is critical. “Remember to report the currency used to pay them,” said Neuhaus. “For example, if electricity was paid in Euros, do not convert to dollars.” For more information regarding the survey, contact Neuhaus at 727-2325.

In this edition of the Rota Sports Report, RSR wants to talk about streaking. And of course we mean consecutive winning streaks. What did you think

Also sounds crazy good but that was 65 years ago and RSR believes only 18 people were on the tour back then (kidding). Sugar Ray Robinson won 91 straight middleweight fights between February 1943 and July 1951. Now we’re talking, that’s what RSR thinks of when we think of sustained greatness. In college football, RSR offers the Oklahoma Sooners as item number one. From October 1953 to November 1957 (47 games) no one in college football beat the Sooners. RSR would like to point out the strength of schedule may not have been what it currently is for top teams but what the heck. How about most consecutive wins over another team? RSR will call this match up item number two. The Notre Dame fighting Irish beat the Midshipmen of the Naval Academy 43 straight years from 1964 to 2006. That is pretty much a long term beat down. But the Middies have gotten back some in recent years taking two out of the last three contests. RSR figures if you’re a Notre Dame ROTC commissioned Naval Officer you can pretty much claim all 46 wins and are barking on the heals (or wheels) of the Sooners. RSR is sure both of the Hockey fans out there (sorry the Olympics are history) know the Montreal Canadians won five straight Stanley Cups from 1956 to 1960 (they actually were in the finals 10 straight times from 51-60). Here is one everyone forgets happened but Edwin Moses won 122 straight 400 Meter Hurdles over a ten year span from September 1977 to June 1987. Track is a young man’s

we meant? While going through the recently completed NCAA Tourney events (ouch my brackets, I mean really Butler?), RSR noticed the biggest news was not happening on the men’s side. Don’t get us wrong, this has been the best version of Madness March has ever produced, but how about those Husky women? We all need to take a minute and notice the greatness taking place. As this column went to press, the UCONN Women’s Basketball team had won 76 consecutive games starting in November 2008. RSR got to thinking, what is the greatest streak of wins in sports? In the NBA, the L.A. Lakers won 33 straight games during the 1971-72 season. Although impressive, it didn’t really mean anything being regular season and all. Byron Nelson won 11 consecutive PGA events in 1945.

sport, so holding this streak together that long gets an “attta boy” from RSR. How about the University of North Carolina’s Women's Soccer team? They won an amazing 103 straight times from September 1986 through September 1990. Since we are talking college basketball, the UCONN Women have to get past the Wizard of Westwood and his UCLA Bruin teams of the 1960’s and 70’s. Pick a streak from them and it will be impressive. Seven consecutive seasons from 1967 to 1973 they were the champs of men’s college basketball. The streak the UCONN women are chasing is the 88 straight wins that the Bruins can claim from Jan. 1971 through 1974. Heady stuff indeed. RSR is most impressed with a high school football team. The Da La Salle Spartans of Concord, Calif. won 151 straight games from September. 1992 through September. 2004. What makes this so impressive is the huge turnover that takes place each year in players. Sure it helps RSR figures when you have D.J. Williams (Denver), Maurice Jones Drew (Jacksonville), Demetrius Williams (Baltimore) and Matt Gutierrez (Kansas City) all current NFL players on your roster. Still this has to be one of the top streaks in sports. What has RSR so impressed with the UCONN Women is all of the wins in their current streak have been by double digits. The Huskies are lead by Coach Geno Auriemma who has a career record of 696 wins against 122 losses. That is an insane 85 percent winning percentage. RSR would not be surprised to see this team surpass Coach Wooden and his records. Good luck. Till next time, play it hard and play it safe.

New Photography Options on NAVSTA Rota Meet Heather Beatty Brenner, the owner and artist of heather.b.photography and Tiffany Zettlemoyer of Tiffany Zettlemoyer Photography. These two new base businesses offer a fresh, photojournalistic approach to photography allowing members of the American community to enjoy a custom photography experience in their favorite outdoor Spanish locations. Tiffany and Heather both offer portrait and fine art photography, while Heather also offers event and wedding photography. You may have seen Heather at last month’s Seabee Ball in Puerto de Santa Maria, taking stylish portraits for ball-goers or Tiffany and Heather teaming up to take team photos of the Rota Dance Team, Cheer Squad, BY KAREN LUCAS and Ballet Classes. If you missed them so far, catch Heather next month at the DGF prom, photographing the special night for our high school and Tiffany out on the beach creating memorable portraits for her clients. Both studios offer a variety of affordable packages to suit everyone’s needs and budget. Custom portrait photography is an investment and should be considered as such. Heather has studied under two professional wedding photographers and has been in operation since 2006, while Tiffany is entirely self taught with 2 years portrait experience. All their images are fully edited, color-corrected, and retouched to provide the client with the best possible product. For every hour spent shooting, Tiffany and Heather spend 2-3 hours in a digital darkroom turning a simple photograph into a custom portrait.

Food, Fun and Flamenco Sď?´ď?Żď?˛ď?š ď?Ąď?Žď?¤ Pď?¨ď?Żď?´ď?Żď?ł ď?˘ď?š ETď&#x2122;&#x2020; Kď?Ľď?Źď?Źď?š Mď?Ąď?šď?Ż, Cď?Żď?Ąď?łď?´ď?Źď?Šď?Žď?Ľ

If it is springtime in Southern Spain than it means it must be time for the 725th Air Mobility Squadron Top 3 annual Flamenco fashion show. This is the second year the organization has hosted the event at the Sea View Pines amphitheater to benefit the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. The show featured fashion, accessories and shoes from local businesses which were showcased during a runway show, a flamenco dance demonstration and live Andalucian flamenco music. At the helm of this endeavor was Machuky Redmond, wife of Air Force Senior Master Sergeant James Redmond, who is a flamenco dance veteran and experienced fashion show producer in her own right. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very old tradition in our culture,â&#x20AC;? said Redmond who produced this year and last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shows and has shown other flamenco exhibitions for various schools and entities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;AndalucĂ­an women whose husbands sold livestock at the market fair wore dresses like these and over time it became a fashion style for all women.â&#x20AC;? The show showed Americans a part of typical AndalucĂ­an culture and to show women how feria dresses are worn and accessorized. After the show, tapas, drinks and grilled meats were available for purchase in an open-air cassata to raise funds for NMCRS. With feria season fast approaching, it is time for Flamenco fashionistaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to get out there and embrace this colorful aspect of Spanish culture.

B� L�. B�� T������, NAVSTA PAO

The Rota community celebrated Easter this year in a variety of different ways. On April 1, religious ministries and volunteers put on a dramatic presentation of "The Last Supper." Religious ministries also provided services for Good Friday and Easter Sunday. On April 3, MWR held their Easter Eggstravaganza. Activities included arts and crafts, giant inflatables, music, prizes, egg hunt and of course, a giant Easter bunny. No Easter bunnies were harmed during the hunt.
