Ready, set, grow – ‘Movember’ run to support men’s health

More vegetables and fewer fried foods are showing up in school cafeterias at Naval Support Activity (NSA) Naples, thanks to a collaborative effort to improve the nutritional content of school lunches on base. Schools aboard NSA Naples recently introduced a revised school meal program that implements the nutritional standards set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The new menu offers more fruits, vegetables, whole grain bread, baked dishes, yogurt and cereals, while eliminating or greatly reducing fried foods, high-fat entrees and breakfast items with high sugar content. Lt. Cmdr. Tinsika Riggs, head of nutrition management at U.S. Naval Hospital Naples, said reviewing menus and meeting USDA guidelines is a requirement for federal funding.

Sailors from the Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) First Class Petty Officer Association will sprint while sporting mustaches in November as part of an effort to raise awareness about men’s health issues. As part of the global movement of “Movember,” the C4I First Class Petty Officer Association is putting on an afternoon 5K charity run at the Naval Support Activity (NSA) Naples Support Site Saturday, Nov. 10. Movember is a worldwide initiative intended to raise awareness about men’s health in a uniquely male way — by growing a mustache. According to the Movember Foundation website, “Movember” — which combines the words November and mustache to form its name — helps raise money for organizations like the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LiveStrong Foundation. “This event is to create awareness of healthy living and to support men in the battle against prostate cancer,” said Intelligence Specialist 1st (SW/AW) Class Scott Wulwick, the event coordinator. “Prostate cancer claims as many men a year as breast cancer does women.” Since its founding in 2003, the Movember campaign has grown into a worldwide organization, which has raised $300 million dollars to date for Movember’s global beneficiary partners. “Right now all we have planned is the 5K charity run,” said Wulwick. “But there may also be some kind of recognition event for the best mustache and top fundraiser on base at the beginning of December.” see ‘MOVEMBER’ RUN Page 7

Riggs, who initiated all the changes, also said the process of revision took about six months to complete, with many considerations to account for.

“The previous menu had not been reviewed in over four years by a registered dietician,” said Riggs. see LUNCH PROGRAM Page 6

USO Thanksgiving Taste of Home Night Nov. 15

By Capt. Scott Gray NSA Commanding Officer Let me begin by wishing all of our U.S. military veterans a happy Veterans Day. We pause this weekend and Monday to recognize the millions of Americans who have served years past or currently serve in the military. This weekend, take time to reflect on all those who have given life and limb to guarantee the freedoms and liberty we enjoy today. To our sailors, soldiers, airmen, and Coast Guardsmen stationed here in Naples and elsewhere around the world, thank you for your service to the nation. Those who serve in our military represent a tiny fraction or our overall population, yet guarantee our liberties. For those who made the commitment to serve and took the oath, you have already done more than most Americans will ever do in service to our country. I thank you for your service, and am proud to serve alongside you! To our Marines, thank you for 237 years of faithful service and exceptional commitment. Enjoy tonight's U.S. Marine Corps Birthday Ball. Though tonight’s ball is scheduled to continue well past midnight, I suspect that our hard-charging Marines will lead the pack at the “Running of the Mustaches” 5K charity race Saturday on the Support Site. I encourage everyone to participate. Proceeds from the race will benefit prostate and testicular cancer research. Pages 1 and 6 of Panorama this week list the race’s details. It is scheduled to start at noon outside the Support Site Fit Forum. Time to sport those mustaches! As many of you are aware, this was an important week in the United States, where Americans voted in national and local elections. Once again, we showcased the strength of our democracy. I want to thank the Voting Assistance Office and all command representatives who helped service members and civilian personnel register and file ballots on time. The opportunity to exercise the right to vote, no matter where we are in the world, is a privilege greatly facilitated by their efforts. Looking ahead, stay tuned for exciting community events as we edge closer to the holiday season. Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I am sure everyone is looking forward to some family time and a traditional holiday meal. This will be a perfect opportunity for our community to offer single and unaccompanied service members a taste of home. The USO and MWR are scheduled to host home-style Thanksgiving meals for our service members who are away from their families. The meals will be served at the Capodichino Fellowship Hall and the Liberty Center Nov. 15 and 22, respectively. If you would like to volunteer to support or provide a dish, contact the USO. Please remember our single and unaccompanied sailors this holiday season and include them in your plans. The holidays are difficult enough when you are away from friends and family, much less being in a foreign country. Let’s take care of our own and ensure no sailor is left behind this holiday season. The annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is also coming up the first week of December. Look forward to seeing everyone at the event, which will include a holiday concert and social. We are all part of the greater U.S. military family in Naples, so let’s take care of each other this weekend. Remember “S5I:” See Something Suspicious, Say Something Immediately. We all play a part in ensuring the security and safety of our community, so remain vigilant and keep your eyes open for suspicious activity. If you see something, report it. Please remain vigilant and alert. Finally, pay attention to road conditions during your holiday travel, and slow down if road conditions warrant. If you drink, don’t drive. Have a plan before you start drinking. I look forward to seeing all of you throughout the community. Have a safe and well-deserved holiday weekend!

‘Luci d’Artista’ lights up streets of Salerno Last Saturday, Salerno fired up its annual “Luci d’Artista” (“Lights of the Artist”) light show, an extraordinary exhibition of illuminated art in the city’s streets, squares and parks. The lights, which will continue throughout the holiday season, evoke fairy-tale landscapes, elves, flying carpets, lanterns and dragons. Additionally, the city’s large Christmas tree and its forest of ice celebrate Salerno’s partnership with the city of Stockholm, Sweden. The art exhibition drew millions of visitors last year, and the city administration hopes that this year the influx of visitors will positively boost the local economy — not only in Salerno, but also throughout the entire region of Campania. Those visiting the city during this period will find themselves enveloped in a magical atmosphere, rich in references to mythology, fables and the natural world. The lights will remain illuminated until the end of January 2013.

Newly reopened Pompeii gardens create new display for Vesuvius’ victims The city of Pompeii has reopened the Orto dei fuggiaschi (Garden of the fugitives), a large area of vineyard where the bodies of thirteen people were found who tried to escape from the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. They were buried by the ashes of the following eruptive phases. The casts of the bodies have been restored and are displayed in a new layout.

International anti-mafia police school to be located in Caserta The head of Italy’s national police, Antonio Manganelli, has announced that the city of Caserta will soon host an international anti-mafia police school to help train police from around the world in combating organized crime. This school will present the current expertise on organized crime, along with teaching crime-fighting techniques. Italy was chosen to be the school’s location not only because there is a strong mafia presence here, but because the country is strong in fighting it, Manganelli said. Manganelli made the announcement about the new school during the 81st general assembly of Interpol in Rome.

Centuries-old Florence language academy goes digital In Florence, the Accademia della Crusca has studied and promoted the Italian language for more than 400 years. Now, 400 years after producing its first dictionary in 1612, the academy is promoting its scholarship through the Internet. The Academy is using a Twitter account and an activating a channel on YouTube to transmit video lectures, discussions and other forms of research on linguistic issues. The academy is also studying how the Italian language evolved through the 19th and 20th centuries.

Cattle loose on Sicilian highway snarl traffic

Women in Naples province arrested for organized crime involvement

On Monday morning, people driving on the Sicilian highway A20 were forced to halt when a truck headed toward the city of Messina lost its load. The truck was shipping cattle when six of them were thrown from the back of the trailer truck, causing chaos. Police were able to herd the injured animals to safety and clear the highways. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the accident.

Early Wednesday morning, police raided homes of some family clans in the province of Naples. The operation led to the arrest of several women, who police believed were managing crime organizations on behalf of their incarcerated husbands. The women’s organization was involved in international drug and arms trafficking with links to Spain and France. Charges also included fraud and carrying concealed weapons.

the Veiled Christ statue by Giuseppe sanmartino is the highlight of the sculptural program at the sansevero Chapel in naples. the work, completed in 1753, is renowned for how it creates the illusion of a thin, transparent shroud in marble. (Photo courtesy of Museo Cappella Sansevero)

Naples’ Sansevero Chapel, famous for its Veiled Christ, doubles as a temple to the pursuit of knowledge By Melissa Kabukuru, Panorama editor

he Cappella Sansevero in Naples is more than a religious monument. Located in the center of the oldest part of the city, it stands as a shrine to intellectual and spiritual discovery, chronicling the path to enlightenment through its world-renowned sculptures.

T

The chapel is hard to categorize. It is partly a mausoleum containing monuments to the relatives of Raimondo di Sangro, the seventh prince of Sansevero, who spearheaded the site’s redecoration in the 1700s. It is also a religious chapel, complete with a Pietà altarpiece, while its other sculptures exalt the virtues needed to excel in intellectual study. The first time I went to the Sansevero Chapel, I came for

the sansevero Chapel in naples’ spaccanapoli district is part church, part family mausoleum and part monument to the enduring quest for knowledge. It is most famous for being the home of the Veiled Christ, a 1753 sculpture by Giuseppe sanmartino. (Photo courtesy of Museo Cappella Sansevero)

what is billed as its main attraction: the Veiled Christ, a remarkable 18th-century sculpture of Jesus covered by a shroud. In marble, the artist Giuseppe Sanmartino managed to carve the illusion of a veil so thin it reveals every detail of Christ’s body. The twists and folds in the fabric seem to evoke the writhing agony of the crucifixion, revealing more of Christ’s form than they conceal. Though theoretically dead, the figure appears to be in the last moments of life, in the very moment of surrendering himself to death — as if on the verge of finding peace. The Veiled Christ is the centerpiece of the chapel today, but there are many other works of art to discover inside. On the eight pillars that line the walls are eight statues representing virtues — ones that Raimondo di Sangro, the mind behind the chapel’s decoration, considered to be essential steps on the path to self-knowledge. These virtues are “Modesty,” “Selfcontrol,” “Religious Zeal,” “Divine Love,” “Decorum,” “Education,” “Liberality,” “Sweetness of the Marital Yoke” and “Disillusion.” While depictions of virtues can often be predictable and boring, these statues are atypical in many of their details, such as the depiction of a cherub torching a heretical book (identifiable by the snakes pouring forth from it) in the “Religious Zeal” group. The spectacular allegory of “Disillusion” is perhaps the most impressive; it depicts a man emerging from an exquisitely rendered net carved out of marble. The fact that the artist Francesco Queirolo was able to whittle a realistic-looking net out of stone continues to amaze me, even after several visits to the chapel. As if these marvels in marble weren’t enough, the chapel’s ceiling is brightly painted with curving architectural illusions and a trompe l’oeil dome, while funerary monuments to members of the di Sangro family add to the sculptural program.

the Chapel sansevero Museum in naples' spaccanapoli district is a family mausoleum and church, but also a museum filled with statues that symbolize the journey toward knowledge and enlightenment. among its most famous statues are "Modesty" (pictured above) and the Veiled Christ. (Photo courtesy of the Museo Cappella Sansevero)

Visitors also can see pieces of the labyrinth floor pattern that once covered the nave, a decorative element that would have contributed to the theme of finding one’s way to intellectual enlightenment. Additionally, Raimondo di Sangro collected a pair of scientific oddities that are now displayed in an area below the chapel: the so-called Anatomical Machines, two models that depict the human vascular system in surprising detail. The doctor Giuseppe Salerno used an unknown method to model the circulatory system in these male and female anatomical figures, which were created between 1763 and 1764. Scholars today aren’t sure if the veins were preserved through the injection of a metallic substance, or if they were methodically recreated with paint and colorant. If you’re coming to the Chapel Sansevero expecting to see only one great sculpture, prepare to be surprised. The temple of Baroque treasures is complex enough and filled with enough rich architectural details to make it worth visiting again and again.

Friday, Nov 16 — SHOPPING IN VOMERO AREA (8 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Departs from the Support Site) A trip to the hill of Vomero.

He later found out that the alarm belonged to his vehicle, and that two unknown individuals had pulled a gun on the parking lot attendant and broke the window of his car.

Department of agriculture. (Photo by MC1 Felicito Rustique)

LUNCH PROGRAM Continued from Page 1

“The menu was not meeting standards in several categories, including green leafy vegetables and whole grains,” Riggs added. “I needed to meet with the food service contractor, who can only buy food from our commissary and has a limited staff, (which makes) making meals from scratch difficult.” When middle and high school students go to lunch, they can choose a complete, federally approved meal from one line, or select individual dishes from an ‘A la carte’ line. Elementary kids only receive federal meals, but regardless, Riggs wants to ensure that both lines offer healthy foods. “Another issue is that of ‘competitive foods’ offered outside the school meal program, labeled ‘A la carte,’” said Riggs. “These are foods that most kids love — cheeseburgers, pizza, nachos. The problem is we don’t want our kids eating these foods every day. These foods take business away from the federal program. Making both the competitive foods and the federal lunch program healthy and nutritious is the goal of the new school meal program.” Jack Hammond, a Navy Exchange contracting officer responsible for distributing funds to buy meal supplies, said he believes a new school meal program can only help students have healthier diets. “Everyone has a role to play,” said Hammond. “The intent is good. With childhood obesity on the rise and creating an alarming health concern, why not do something about school lunches to get kids eating healthier food? A healthy school lunch with no fried foods, more vegetables, and less salt and sugar would benefit growing children.” Now that the new program is in full effect, Riggs acknowledges that there might be some people who are

having trouble adjusting, but the end result is better for the community. “My understanding is that the students are happy with the changes,” said Riggs. “I’m sure they’re not thrilled that we took French fries off the menu several days a week, and I think we still have a lot of work to do. The work of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is maximized by the commitment of the community.” Cristina Hall, the Naples High School nurse, said students are responding well to the new program, which she believes is better than the previous one. “I’ve had many students comment on how much better the food is this school year, especially the fresh baked pizza served in the ‘A la carte’ line,” said Hall. “The new menu limits the total calorie counts of the meals by offering low fat milk instead of sugary drinks. This way, students get nutrient-rich calories instead of empty calories of sugar.” Riggs also said that the current rates of obesity in America make it clear why tackling child nutrition and health is so important. “We are in the middle of an obesity epidemic,” said Riggs. “The main reason we undertook this project was to make a significant impact to as many children as we could. What research tells us is that by the age of three or four, if children are already overweight or obese, they are at an 80 percent greater chance of struggling with this issue in adulthood.” Riggs also had some final advice for parents. “Simple goals set by the family – like eating meals together, having two to three cups of vegetables per day, limiting fruit juice to six ounces per day, and getting one hour of physical activity per day – is the medicine we need to fight this epidemic.” For more information on school nutrition, Hall recommends visiting the following website: http://www. shopmyexchange.com/Community/schoollunch/nutrition.htm.

Region Legal Services Office offers assistance with immigration issues From the Region Legal Services Office EURAFSWA

o you serve in the military but you are not a U.S. citizen? Are you planning on marrying a foreign national? Have you been a permanent resident for years and you wish to become an American citizen? These are some of the cases where you may need the help of the U.S. Region Legal Service Office (RLSO) of Navy Region Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia (EURAFSWA). immigration Understanding laws is not always easy, and that is why the RLSO EURAFSWA is here to help. Understanding how to navigate the immigration process is extremely important, but often time consuming; therefore, you need to make sure that you start working on an immigration package well in advance. We offer various kinds of immigration help. If you married a foreign national, your spouse will need to apply for a Permanent Resident Card (Green Card) to gain consent to live and work permanently in the United States. The immigration package should be submitted as soon as possible, and Citizenship U.S. as Immigration Services (USCIS)

D

recommends at least a year for processing. While the immigration process may take less time, you don’t want to be caught with orders back to the United States and have to leave your spouse behind until the process is complete. You need to make sure that your spouse receives a Green Card before your move date to avoid temporary separation and the emotional and financial stress that this delay would cause. As soon as you get married, come see us and we will provide you with a packet with all the information required to get the process started. Once you have completed your documentation, we can proofread it to make sure that there are no mistakes that would cause delay. We also offer help regarding the naturalization process for both active duty members and spouses. We will explain the necessary steps to take and review your packet before you submit it to USCIS. Furthermore, we can make arrangements for your final interview to take place on base, directly followed by the ceremony that proclaims you an American citizen. Recently the USCIS office at the U.S. Embassy in Rome has offered to organize an immigration and naturalization lecture

given by USCIS officials here on base. They would provide information on the basics of U.S. immigration laws, immigration of foreign-born spouses, and the naturalization process. This is a very unique opportunity that we are hoping to take advantage of. Even if you don’t need to start your immigration process right now, start gathering all the information that you need and be ready. Please let us know immediately if you are interested in this outreach opportunity, as the informational brief will only be organized if we have a minimum number of attendees. We would like to schedule the session in late November, sometime after the Thanksgiving holiday, or early December. It will most likely take place mid-day to get the maximum number of attendees. If you think you would like to attend this informational session, please e-mail Ms. Chiara Varriale at Chiara.Varriale.IT@eu.navy. mil with the following information: your name, contact email, and phone number. We will contact you to let you know the time and day of the lecture. Let us help you stay informed and be ready to tackle the immigration process.

FFSC Tip of the Week: Mindfulness From the Fleet and Family Support Center

Some times we realize we are stressed by the way we react over daily hassles or minor issues. Mindfulness is a way of regaining control over ourselves through awareness. Mindfulness techniques are effective not only in changing negative thoughts and behaviors: they work on many levels, improving physical health, correcting blood pressure, and developing self-acceptance and a better bodymind connection. Mindfulness techniques are an incredible way to balance out your life; additionally, they are free to use and have no side effects. To learn about mindfulness and many other techniques that are taught in the Fleet and Family Support Center stress management class, call Louise Cappiello at 081-811-6533.

In the event of an emergency or to report a crime, please call the Emergency Dispatch Center at 081-568-4911 or 5911. (On-Base Dial 9-1-1)

‘Blue Christmas’ event offers support to grieving parents From U.S. Naval Hospital Naples

or many people, Christmas is a time of festive celebrations filled with joy and cheer. For others who have experienced the loss of an infant, it can be a very difficult time. If you are finding this approaching holiday season difficult or if you desire to remember a newborn in a special way, you are invited to attend a special Blue Christmas Remembrance Service at U.S. Naval Hospital Naples. The intent of this service is to aid the healing process of families who have lost a baby. As difficult as it may be to discuss the hurt of such a loss, silence often stifles the open expression of emotions. Sometimes even more heartbreaking, the silence may suggest an unintentional denial of the life and death of an infant. The reasons vary why parents intentionally decide or by default decide not to talk about infancy death, because even amidst medical explanations, the death of an infant destroys innate hopes and expectations. Thus, to honor and facilitate spiritual and emotional healing, U.S. Naval Hospital Naples will host a Blue Christmas Remembrance Service from noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 28. The event will take place in the Hospital Chapel on the second floor. This service will provide a time and a space for reflections, and a few words to comfort mothers, fathers, siblings and caregivers. If you would like to participate in this remembrance service, you are invited to confirm your attendance by e-mailing USNHNaplesBlue Christmas@med.navy.mil. Please RSVP no later than Nov. 23.

He takes matters into his own massive hands – and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade, through every generation of video games – to prove he's got what it takes to be a hero.

When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mashups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella. This could wind up either the coolest thing they'll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.

Naples girls defend cross country title; boys take 2nd From the Naples High School Cross Country Team

The Naples Cross Country team left the warm Mediterranean for the cold air of Baumholder, Germany to compete at the 2012 European Championship Cross Country Meet Oct. 25. Conditions were brutal. All athletes arrived at the course site to discover they would run on snow-covered ground, through temperatures of 28 degrees Fahrenheit and a bitter wind. Despite the tough conditions, the Naples Wildcats turned in one of their finest European performances in school history. Though all eligible teams from Department of Defense Dep(DoDDS) Schools endents Division II competed, both the men’s and women’s races were primarily a battle between Naples and the strong Belgian team SHAPE, which was back in Division II this year for the first time since 2008. Destiny Mora led the Naples women’s team, finishing third in Division II and 16th overall. The women of the SHAPE Spartans ran strong, putting three girls in front of Naples’ second finisher, Alex Guinn, who placed 7th in Division II. However, the Wildcats’ Jessica Poluhawich, Isabella Lucy, and Amber Sheline completed the course well before SHAPE’s fourthplace finisher, assuring the team’s victory. Paluhawich finished 9th overall in Division II, while Lucy finished 11th and Sheline placed 13th in the division. Caroline Bracken and Amelia Chaston finished 16th and 30th respectively among Division II athletes. In the end, the Naples women edged out SHAPE by 8 points to earn their second consecutive championship and their third championship in four years. The

women’s Division II results were as follows: Naples 38; SHAPE 46; Vicenza 91; American Overseas School of Rome, 106; Bahrain, 122; Aviano 124; AFNORTH 175. Despite one of the strongest performances in team history, the men were edged out by SHAPE by a mere 2 points. Jacob Gray led the Wildcats across the finish line, placing fifth in Division II and 29th overall. He was closely followed by a pack of green: Sam Chaston (6th in Division II); Bret Baldwin (7th in Division II), and Evan Bradley (8th in Division II). Marshall Saunders finished 11th in Division II and 50th overall to close out the top 5 scoring positions, followed by Luca Melendez (13th in Division II) and Matt Collins (23rd in Division II). Nevertheless, largely due to a strong performance by SHAPE front runner Josh Moran, the Spartans ended Naples’ European wining streak. “We are disappointed, of course. But I am definitely proud of this team and the way they ran,” said coach Chip Noonan. “37 points is our lowest European point total ever. I give credit to SHAPE. It was as

Lady Wildcats defeat Ansbach to become volleyball champs – again By Victoria Krause

The Lady Wildcats got what they came for during the Department of Defense Division II (DoDDS) European volleyball championships, defeating the Ansbach Cougars during the final round of tournament play Nov. 3. The win marks the Lady Wildcats’ second consecutive championship win. The undefeated Lady Wildcats finished the season with a 12-0 record, having only lost two sets their entire season: one to the American Overseas School of Rome early in the season and one to the Ansbach Lady Cougars in the championship game. The tournament began Nov. 1, with the 13 schools of Division II being divided into two pools. During the first day of pool play, the Lady Wildcats took their opponents in stride, winning all of their matches in two sets in a best-ofthree format. Friday saw more of the same, with the Wildcats defeat-

ing their all their opponents in two sets. Their undefeated standing in pool play earned the Lady Wildcats a spot in the semi-finals, where they defeated the American Overseas School of Rome Falcons 25-22, 25-18, 25-13 in a best of five format. The next stop for the Wildcats was the championship match on Saturday, when they faced the Ansbach Cougars. From the start of the tournament, the Cougars had been prowling their way to the top of their pool, focused on a championship win. The Lady Wildcats were the only thing in their way. As can be imagined, this was a hard-fought and passionate match. The Cougars took the first set, but the Lady Wildcats regrouped and showed what a season's worth of conditioning and hard practice can do, winning the next three sets. In the end, the Wildcats won 23-25, 25-20, 25-17, and 25-18. During the championship match,

Football: Naples falls in final minute to Bitburg By Melissa Kabukuru, Panorama editor

he undefeated Naples Wildcats roared on to the field Nov. 3 with the intention of becoming the DoDDS-Europe Division II champions. Those dreams were dashed in a heartbreaking 22-20 fourth-quarter loss to the Bitburg Barons, who scored 22 points in the last 10 minutes of play. Several Naples players contributed to impressive scoring drives during the game. Naples quarterback Joseph Pitts ran 70 yards for a touchdown, in addition to completing a 1-yard touchdown run. Pitts also found Bryan Pfirmann in the endzone to complete a 53-yard touchdown pass. But Bitburg, down 20-0 in the fourth quarter, decided to make a comeback. With less than 10 minutes left on the clock, Bitburg’s C.J. Evans ran two yards for a touchdown, putting his team on the board for the first time. A touchdown pass and a 2-point conversion by Bitburg then brought the Barons up 20-14. After a hard-fought fourth-down conversion in the last two minutes of the game, Bitburg then scored a touchdown with only 22 seconds of play remaining. The Barons followed up with a 2point conversion to win the game. The Naples Wildcats finished the season second overall in Division II and as the Division II-South champions, with an overall record of 7-1.

he Naples High School Men’s Volleyball Team went to Aviano last weekend to participate in the Mediterranean Men’s Volleyball Tournament. There were eight teams present at the tournament, including schools from Italy, Bahrain and Turkey. Every team played one another in a round-robin style tournament. The teams with the two best records from the round robin competed for first and second place, while the teams with the third- and fourth-best records competed for third and fourth place. Ultimately, Naples finished the tournament in a two-way tie with Vicenza for fourth place, finishing with a tournament record of 3-4. Top-seeded American Overseas School of Rome won the tournament 7-0, with Marymount International school finishing second (6-2) and Incirlik coming in third (6-2). Aviano took sixth place (2-5) and Bahrain and Ankara finished last (1-6). Standout players for Naples included Josh Hensy, Sam Murdock, Austin Bain, Samuel Thomas, Frankie Perez, DJ Langstraat and Alex Rushing. Senior co-captain Murdock led the team on the court as the setter, while co-captain Bain was a key outside hitter and backup setter. As an outside hitter, Hensy led the team in kills. Rushing and Thomas were middle blockers and led the team in blocks. Langstraat and Perez led the back row as liberos. Overall, Naples had a great rebuilding season, and the Wildcats have high hopes for dominating the courts next year. Coach Nagafuchi noted that Incirlik and Marymount were intimidating opponents with a height advantage, which contributed to Naples’ losses to these teams. Despite losing to top teams American Overseas School in Rome and Vicenza earlier in the season, the Wildcats engaged in heavy battle with these teams during the weekend tournament. For Coach Nagafuchi, the season highlight was the fact that his players overcame their jitters and performed so well against all the teams in tournament play – even against teams that had beat the Wildcats earlier in the season. Though there will be the usual turnover due to graduating seniors and Permanent Change of Station moves this year, the Wildcats seem poised to return with gusto. Coach Nagafuchi and the team owe thanks to volunteer coaches Jonathan Ross and Emilio Espiet, and the adult community members who supported the team throughout this season.

Tiger Sharks excel at meets in Aviano and in Vicenza By Nicole Urbanski

he Naples Tiger Sharks are accumulating miles in the air, on the land, and of course in the water. On Saturday, Nov. 3 the team competed in Aviano, posting 755 out of a possible 1629 points and winning the meet. Then on Sunday, Nov. 4 the team competed in Vicenza, again winning the meet with 748 points. These two wins followed the Tiger Sharks’ successful showing in Berlin Oct. 28, when — despite fielding a relatively small team — the Tiger Sharks finished second out of seven teams, accumulating 615 points. The Nov. 3 meet in Aviano followed a different schedule of events, placing long distance events — typically held at the end of a meet — in the middle. This can affect swimmers by creating too long of a break for those not competing, or by tiring swimmers who have events afterwards. “Our team did not let the meet structure affect their overall performance,” said Tiger Sharks coach Jane Higgins. “We continued to perform well after the long distance events.” During the Aviano meet, 10 Tiger Sharks competed in the long distance events and 6 qualified for the long distance championship meet that will take place Nov. 24 and 25 in Belgium. Despite the unusual sequence of events, the Tiger Sharks were led to victory on Saturday with 51 first-place finishes, each of which earned 8 points for the team. Lauren Brenner, Delaney Snodgrass and Leslie Traught posted first-place finishes for the girls 8-and-under events. Lindsey

T

Sharp (age 9), Alexa Morillo (age 10), sisters Danielle and Shannon Cutler (age 11), Emily Patterson (age 12), Maura Patterson (age 14) and Morgan Dodge (age 17) also contributed first places finishes for the girls’ team. For the boys’ team, swimmers Jerra Ewing (age 13), Kendall Ewing (age 10), Jacob Gray (age 14), McKenna Gray (age 12), Chris Levine (age 12), Jacob Levine (age 10), Jordan Traucht (age 7) and Nathan Traucht (age 12) accumulated a total of 17 first-place finishes. Jordan Traucht improved the most upon his personal best times and was named “biggest loser” of the meet. Swimmers Bret Baldwin (age 15), Luke Johnson (age 8), Marshall Saunders (age 15), Timothy Smith (age 12) and Ryan Sword (age 8) also had first place finishes in Aviano. Second-place finishes earned the team 6 points per victory. Again, the Tiger Sharks crowded the podium with swimmers Samantha Allen (age 12), Blythe Brenner (age 10), Caitlin Quirk (age 12), Liam Gyles (age 14), Luke Patterson (age 9), Braden Peterson (age 12), Sean Quirk (age 9), Andrew Smith (age 13) and Stephen Traucht (age 10), who all posted second-place finishes. Each third-place finish earned the team 5 points. Swimmers Sydney Bidwell (age 14), Maddy Fletcher (age 13), Carly Sharp (age 11) Seamus Gyles (age 10), Houlton McGuinn (age 11), and Conner Roberts (age 14) each posted third-place finishes. Swimmers Ingrid Bidwell (age 13), Jodie Urbanski (age 10), and Malena Yenko (age 9) also earned points for the team. Anika Mustard (age 10) contributed points and was also named the team’s “biggest loser” for improving on her past times. Overall, the Aviano meet was a success beyond the points and placements, with improved event times posted by swimmers Mackenzie Allen (age 9), Natalie Cariello (age 12), Ryan Gray (age 10), Kieran Gyles (age 9), Drake McGuinn (age 9), Brendan Roberts (age 10), Brendan Smith (age 9),

and Alyssa Yenko (age 11). Jake Peterson (age 9) also competed. The Tiger Sharks returned to the pool early Sunday morning, showing little fatigue from their effort the previous day. “Statistically, our team has always performed better on the second day,” Higgins said. The team proved the stats on Sunday, with 94 percent of the team improving their best times. Swimmers Morgan Dodge, Kendall Ewing, sisters Emily and Maura Patterson, Timothy Smith, and Leslie Traucht took first in all three of their individual events, garnering the team 24 points each. Bret Baldwin, Shannon Cutler, Jerra Ewing, Jacob Gray, Jacob Levine, Paul Patterson, Marshall Saunders, Carly Sharp and Jordan Traucht earned first-place finishes in two of their three events. Sisters Blythe and Delaney Brenner, Danielle Cutler, McKenna Gray, Seamus Gyles, Chris Levine, Alexa Morillo, Luke Patterson, Braden Peterson, Lindsey Sharp and Lauren Snodgrass all posted first-place finishes, as did siblings John (age 13), Maria (age 8) and Nick (age 11) Sherer. Maria Sherer earned “biggest loser” honors for the girls team. Points went beyond first-place finishes, and swimmers Mackenzie and Samantha Allen, Ingrid and Sydney Bidwell, Kieran Gyles, Houlton McGuinn, Anika Mustard, Caitlin and Sean Quirk, Noah Sherer, Lachlan Sims, Andrew Smith, Brendan Smith, Nathan and Stephen Traucht, and Jodie Urbanski each earned points in their individual events. Keeping in line with the statistics, swimmers Ryan Gray, Jake Peterson, Brendan and Conner Roberts, and Alyssa Yenko improved their best times in their individual events. Drake McGuinn was named the “biggest loser” of the boys’ team for his time improvement. Malena Yenko also competed. On Sunday, Nov. 11, the Tiger Sharks will host their second home meet of the season at the Capodichino pool. The meet will begin at 9:30 a.m.

1. The AAP discourages media use by children younger than two years. 2. The AAP realizes that media exposure is a reality for many families in today’s society. If parents choose to engage their young children with

electronic media, they should have concrete strategies to manage it. Ideally, parents should review the content of what their child is watching and watch the program with their child. 3. Parents are discouraged from placing a television set in their child’s bedroom. 4. Parents need to realize that their own media use can have a negative effect on their children. Watching TV programs that are intended for adults while young children are in the room proves distracting for both the parent and the child. 5. Unstructured playtime is more valuable for the developing brain than any electronic media exposure. If a parent is not able to actively play with a child, that child should have solo playtime with an adult nearby. Even for infants as young as four months of age, solo play allows a child to think creatively, problem-solve, and accomplish tasks with minimal parent interaction. The parent can also learn something in the process of giving the child an opportunity to entertain him or herself while remaining nearby.

Electronic media cannot be escaped. It surrounds us, from 24-hour children’s programming channels to computers and from smartphones to the iPad. Today’s parents are marketed DVDs and apps promising to prepare their children for school and enhance their mental development. Don’t be fooled by this hype. Research has consistently shown that early brain development and appropriate social, emotional, and cognitive skill development in babies and toddlers is best supported by direct interactions with parents and other significant caregivers. The latest policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) provides recommendations concerning media use by children who are under two years old. The AAP noted that children do best when interacting with peers or responsive adults. Electronic media seems to wind up children, and it appears that children don’t sleep as well when they watch TV before bed. Sound restful sleep also ensures that your child will be ready to

engage in productive play. Heavy television watchers may be at risk for language delays and obesity. The recommendations also point out that unstructured “unplugged” playtime is critical to developing creativity, problem-solving, and reasoning skills. Try to limit your young child’s exposure to electronics as much as possible. The AAP discourages all media use by children younger than two years of age, and recommends that schoolaged children’s total media time be limited to no more than one to two hours per day. In addition, when children are watching electronic media, parents should try to make it interactive. Sit with your child, sing along with the songs and ask questions to encourage communication. Below are all the recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics policy statement:

Obtaining your Sojourner Permit Italian law requires all foreign personnel working or living within Italy, other than an active-duty member under military orders, to obtain a Sojourner Permit within eight days of arrival in Italy. This is different from a visa, which is merely an approval for entry into the country. All applicants over 14 years of age must apply in person, as each person's signature is required at the time of application. NATIONALS OF ANY STATE OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY COMING TO ITALY DO NOT REQUIRE ANY VISA OR SOJOURNER PERMIT. As part of the Area Orientation process, the U.S. Region Legal Service Office (RLSO EURAFSWA) assists in the preparation and oversees the acquisition of the Sojourner Permit for all personnel attached to U.S. Navy commands in the Naples area. Army and Air Force personnel stationed at JFC must apply through the Carabiniere at the JFC Provost Marshall's Office, Building L. Contact Connie Henderson, RLSO EURAFSWA liaison advisor, at 081-5684639 for more information.

An international ‘thank you’ to veterans By Melissa Kabukuru, Panorama editor

s the United States celebrates Veterans Day Nov. 11, other nations will be taking the time to honor their war heroes as well. Nov. 11 also marks Remembrance Day in Canada and Remembrance Sunday in Britain — days when these nations pause to remember their veterans. Here in Naples, members of a multitude of communities will come together Sunday, Nov. 11 for a Remembrance Day Ceremony at Christ Church Naples, an Anglican chuch in the city’s ritzy Chiaia neighborhood. The Remembrance Day Ceremony has become a tradition at Christ Church Naples, said Rev. Kingsley Joyce, the church’s chaplain. Each year, English-speaking expats and members of the U.S. and NATO military community come to the church to pay honor to those who have served their countries, he said. “It’s mainly to remember those who have lost their lives not just in the two world wars, but in any conflict,” Joyce said. “It’s also for all those whose lives have been affected by war.” The church encourages anyone coming to the Remembrance Day Ceremony to wear a red poppy, a symbol that is worn in Britain and Canada around Remembrance Day to show support for those who have served in combat. The flower has special significance due to its widespread growth on the battlefield of Flanders Fields, which was the site of intense fighting in World War I and the subject of a famous Canadian war poem. Joyce said the poppy-wearing tradition developed in Britain after World War I, when veterans’ groups began selling poppies to raise money for returning soldiers. Remembrance Sunday is also known as Poppy Day in Britain for this reason. Today, the holiday is celebrated on the Sunday closest to Nov. 11, the anniversary of the end of World War I. In keeping with British tradition, Christ’s Anglican Church will have poppies for sale Nov. 11, with proceeds benefiting veterans’ groups, Joyce said. The church’s Remembrance Day Ceremony will involve two minutes of silence and the laying of a memorial wreath, he said. While Christ’s Anglican Church was established

A

to serve the British community in Naples, today it serves as a gathering place for English-speaking community throughout Southern Italy. In a region that is overwhelmingly Catholic, it is the only church in the area offering English-language Anglican and Episcopalian services, Joyce said. As such, it draws a wide variety of worshippers, ranging from Americans to English-speaking Italians. The church has a storied history, having been built in 1863 on land that was donated to the British community by Gen. Giuseppe Garibaldi, a leader in Italy’s unification movement. The façade of the Neogothic church is impossible not to spot as you walk along Via San Pasquale in Chiaia — its gables, pointed and delicate, stand out in a neighborhood populated by designer shops, Italian Baroque architecture and upscale cafes. Inside, bright and intricate stained glass windows illuminate the altar, while pointed arches along the nave maintain the Neogothic style. Worshippers from different nations gather for a service at the church at 10 a.m. every Sunday. For U.S. Navy Capt. Craig Saunders and his family, attending the English-language Episcopal services provides not only spiritual enrichment, but also a sense of community — and a reason to get out into the city. Saunders serves as a junior warden on the church’s board. “We like the community at Christ Church because it is not just Americans,” said Saunders, who lives in Pozzuoli. “One of the reasons I chose to move to Italy was to experience the culture, but if I am isolating myself by only focusing on my own community, I lose some of that opportunity. Christ Church has given me the chance to get out and do that. It’s kind of a mixing of cultures. There are Italians there who speak English … there are also British people, and expats who have been living here forever. It’s an all-in-one melting pot.” Joyce said that everyone is invited to the Nov. 11 Remembrance Day Ceremony at Christ Church. All are also invited to come worship at the church on a weekly basis, he said. The church also holds other events, such as its upcoming Christmas Bazaar Nov. 24. “There’s a community that comes down here,” Joyce said. “It’s a greater opportunity to meet people from the English-speaking community that exists in Naples.”

REMEMBRANCE DAY CEREMONY When: 10 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 11 Where: Christ’s Anglican Church, Via San Pasquale 15/B, Naples What: Service to remember those who have served in combat.
