Galloping seaponies! Mermaids take over NASWI Youth Center By K ATHY REED


Whidbey Crosswind

here was definitely something fishy going on Saturday at the Naval Air Station Whidbey

Island Youth Center. Actually, it was part of a Missoula Children’s Theatre, headquartered in Montana, production of “The Little Mermaid.” So while it was fishy, it was also full of fun for the 50 children who participated in the production and for the family and friends who had the chance to see the performances. “What an opportunity for the kids,” said NASWI Youth Director Cynthia Fletcher. “Not only for the kids in the show, but for the kids who are at the


Youth Center.” The two-person team from MCT arrived at the center for auditions on the last day of school, June 20. They brought with them the set, the costumes and a lot of enthusiasm. Rehearsals began that very day, and continued throughout the rest of the week. But in addition to the rehearsals for the play, the team also conducted workshops. “They did a theater games workshop

VAQ-133 goes to sea for first time in 19 years 2

VAQ-133 Public Affairs

The Wizards of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 133 took the magic out to sea as part of the final stages of predeployment workups onboard the USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74), completing both Composite Training Unit and Joint Task Force Exercise (COMPTUEX/JTFEX). This underway period completed the first set of carrier workups in which the squadron has participated in over 19 years, as it was previously an expeditionary asset. Shipboard life has been a new and exciting experience for the squadron’s maintainers and ground personnel. Learning to operate in such a dynamic environment, from a much smaller space and often with very strict time constraints, would seem to be a very tough transition to make; however, the maintenance and support personnel across the board have not only met the bar, but far surpassed it, keeping the squadron operating without difficulty. Many challenges face each air wing during COMPTUEX and JTFEX. Missions become more complicated with more planes in the air and more sophisticated threats on the ground. At the same time, expectations continue to grow. “I never thought I would learn so much so quickly, said Lt. Matthew “Sugar Britches” Bezold, a relatively new (to the squadron) electronic countermeasures officer. “This environment, being surrounded by professionals, makes me want to work harder to improve because I don’t want to let the team down.” This motivation was felt throughout the command, as well as Carrier Air Wing Nine as a whole, which rose to meet every challenge placed before it. One of the most demanding parts of any COMPTUEX

is the Blue Water Certification the air wing must achieve. During this period, the air wing and flight deck personnel have to demonstrate a sufficient ability to work together and get aircraft aboard with minimal bolters or waveoffs. The Wizards managed to accomplish a 100-percent combat boarding rate for the evaluation, a feat rarely seen even among the most experienced Prowler boat squadrons.

From smaller quarters and longer hours to tougher missions and higher expectations, the Wizards of VAQ133 have once again proven their ability to adapt and overcome. The squadron is looking forward to the opportunity to demonstrate its work ethic and tactical prowess on its upcoming deployment, and its members are excited to finally be back where they began.

VP-40 Participates in CARAT Malaysia 2011 By Lt. j. g. DANIEL BUCCOLA VP-40 Public Affairs

KUANTAN, MAYLAYSIA – The arrival of U.S. Navy ships belonging to Commander Task Force 73 and a P-3C marked the kickoff to Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training, Malaysia 2011. Patrol Squadron (VP) 40 sent one fully qualified combat aircrew along with maintenance personnel to Kuantan, Malaysia, to participate in the exercise between the United States Navy and Royal Malaysian Navy. CARAT Malaysia began with a symposium in Cherating, Malaysia, between representatives of CTF 73, Malaysian naval forces, and VP-40. Lt. Thomas Veade, Combat Aircrew Two (CAC-2) Mission Commander, and Lt. Matthew Curtis, CAC-2 Tactical Coordinator, gave a presentation to the Royal Malaysian Navy about the capabilities and limitations of the P-3C Orion and how patrol and reconnaissance forces are able to contribute to the mission. At-sea evolutions began June 9 and ran around the clock until the morning of June 14. Participating forces included the USS Howard (DDG 83); USS Ford (DDG 54); KD Ledir (F26), a Kasturi class frigate; KD Lekiu (F30), a Lekiu class frigate; and KD Terengganu (F174), a Kedah class offshore patrol vessel. The first exercise required CAC-2 to maintain radar

“Aside from one minor aircraft issue which was resolved on the spot, our maintenance team had the aircraft in an ‘up’ status the entire detachment” – AT1 Ricardo Carrillo reference of all vessels within a 1,600-square- mile sector and visual clearance of approximately 13 nautical miles from Howard in support of a patrol and gunnery exercise. “It was busy out there. With so many surface vessels in the area, it was tasking to keep an updated radar picture. Our equipment worked flawlessly and our crew benefited from excellent training,” stated Naval Aircrewman Second Class Than Ros. At dusk, the joint training transitioned to a search-andrescue exercise, in which CAC-2 located and directed Lekir to the location of a simulated overboard sailor. “The detachment to Malaysia was outstanding. It provided the U.S. Navy with opportunities to enhance our relations with the Malaysian Navy and gave the VP-40 aircrew time on-station with other U.S. assets. The SAREX is a perfect example of an exercise that allows both Malaysian and American forces to overcome language

barriers as well as practice for an exercise that saves lives. The experience and lessons learned while working with allied entities is invaluable,” said Lt. Cmdr. Pete Thrift, detachment officer in charge. On a separate evolution, the P-3C aircrew conducted anti-submarine warfare drills between Howard, Ford, and

Should You Consider Pet Health Insurance?

The costs of veterinary care for your pet are not getting any cheaper. One of the reasons for this is that many of the drugs and supplies used in the treatment of animals actually come from the same manufacturers OR ETS and suppliers that provide these products for people, AKE and the prices for these items keep rising dramatiIEL cally. (One recent example involves an eye ointment DVM from a well-known company that raised the price of the product more than 1,400 percent virtually overnight when it acquired the manufacturing rights for the medication.) Most pet owners take their pets to see a veterinarian once a year or so for a physical exam and updates for immunizations. These routine visits, while not inexpensive, are small when compared to an emergency visit due to an accident or sudden illness. Chronic illnesses, such as heart or kidney disease can also become very expensive over time, as can the management of conditions such as diabetes, which requires the purchase of insulin and more regular visits to your veterinarian to help monitor treatment. In these cases, pet health insurance could be very worthwhile. Pet health insurance has been around for more than a century. In Britain, 23 percent of all pets are covered by insurance. It is a more recent phenomenon in the U.S., although it has been in existence for almost 30 years, with Lassie being the first dog to be insured in 1982. Insurance for pets is more comparable to the type of insurance you have for your home or auto than it is to the medical insurance that people may have. In most cases, a percentage of your expenses for veterinary care are reimbursed to you after you submit your receipt for the services your pet received. Within the last 10 years, more than a dozen insurance companies that provide policies for pets have started, and it has become very confusing for the average consumer to sort it all out. Each company has different plans and reimbursement schedules as well as exemption policies, especially for pre-existing conditions. As a rule of thumb, the younger your pet is, the less expensive the insurance costs will be. Waiting until your pet gets older or actually needs the medical insurance means that you are probably too late, as most companies will not extend coverage in those situations. One strategy to help you lower the costs for insuring your pet may be to consider a policy that only covers major medical expenses in the event of a serious injury or illness. To find out whether or not pet health insurance is right for you, I recommend visiting the following websites: and These are information sites for veterinarians to learn more about insurance, but the information is valuable for any pet owner.

Kids set stage for bright future Recently I’ve had the opportunity to see some pretty talented kids. Between the latest play, “Annie,” at the Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor and the performance I saw at the NAS Whidbey Island Youth Center last weekend, I was impressed with the talent and the nerve of the youth in our community. As I mention to my children every now and then, I was once young — but I don’t recall having enough gumption in elementary school to get on stage KATHY and act. Shyness was a huge factor in REED my early years, but I began to get over it, despite receiving the “Biggest Blusher” award in my eighth-grade social studies class. (I also recall an unfortunate solo at a choir concert which forced me to quit piano lessons when my instructor wanted me to sing at a recital. It was a piano recital, after all, and it’s much easier to sing in front of a few hundred people than, say, a dozen. Who can figure out the logic of a teenager?) But I digress. The point is, it seems today’s youth have so much more courage — and, may I say, sheer talent — than I remember having when I was their age. At a time when bullying has become such an issue, it’s nice to see kids enjoying themselves and not worrying about what others may say. And, at a time when our public schools have to make tough choices between arts education and teaching the basics, it’s good to know parents still see the value of music and theater and seek out opportunities to broaden their children’s horizons. The kids I’ve seen over the past few days set a great example for having good, clean fun while building poise and confidence. They’ll grow up well. -Kathy Reed, editor

Nutrition program draws big crowd at market


Whidbey Crosswind




36th Annual


Ah, summer. A great time to take advantage of all the fresh, local produce available at area farmers markets. But that can be tough when food budgets are tight. Some active duty Navy families who receive support through the Women, Infants and Children nutrition program at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island got a little budget boost last week at the Oak Harbor Public Market. The NAS Whidbey WIC office began handing out its annual Farmers Market Nutrition Program vouchers to eligible family members June 23. “We have 250 packets of vouchers. Each packet is $20, and each eligible person in the family gets one voucher packet,” said Ann Srdar, supervisor for NAS Whidbey Island WIC. “Families only get them once a year, and they’re distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.” While WIC officials will be there each Thursday until the voucher packets run out, the demand last week was high. The line, at least two-or-three people deep, wrapped around the outside edge of the market by the parking lot and back into the market. Srdar said they distributed 160 voucher packs. Reusable shopping bags and a cookbook with recipes for fruits and vegetables were also handed out. Though it’s been around nearly two decades, the program is still new for some, who said they were happy to get the vouchers. “This is my first time hearing about it,” said Priscilla Reither, who has an 18-month-old daughter and whose husband is an Aviation Structural Mechanic. “It’s a nice program for people to help them eat healthier.” While the amount may not seem like a lot to some, Reither said $20 can be put to good use at the market. “You’ve just got to shop smart — $20 goes a long way when you need it,” she said. “This is extra money, above and beyond what they nor-

The WIC supplemental nutrition program is an income-based program that helps pregnant women, new mothers and young children. The NAS Whidbey WIC office is located in Building 13 on the Seaplane Base. (Another office on First Avenue in Oak Harbor serves non-military families, and will also be distributing farmers market vouchers to its clients.)

Most of the produce vendors at the market accept the vouchers, which come in $2 increments. And the vendors like being able to help their customers. “You can get produce at the grocery store, but there’s such a great variety here at the farmers market, and having so much fresh stuff is amazing,” said Candice Pedroza of Swanson Farms. “I can see they’re really happy to be able to use (the vouchers), and they’re really thoughtful with how they spend their checks,” said Anna Reiser, with Five Acre Farm. “I’m proud they choose to use them for our products.” The FMNP was estabCRIMINAL DEFENSE lished by the U.S. Congress & MILITARY LAW in 1992 primarily to help • 22+ years practice provide fresh, unprepared, • Skillful and Experienced locally grown fruits and • Former Federal & vegetables to WIC particiMilitary Litigator pants.

Navy League makes scholarship donation The Oak Harbor Area Council of the Navy League is well known for its support of the sea services and educating the public about America’s standing as a maritime nation. To help further that mission and shed light on the country’s dependence on strong sea services, including the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine, Navy League president Tom Tack presented a $500 check to Wally Funk in support of the Skagit Valley College Foundation, specifically, the Anacortes-based Northwest Career and Technical Academy and Marine Technology Center. Tack said the council does a great job supporting local sailors, marines and their families, but can do more to educate the general public. “This scholarship is made in the hope that it will help educate a deserving local young person in a maritime trade, and that he or she will mature with a greater understanding as to the importance free and open sea lanes have on our local, national and global economy,” said Tack. The Navy League is a civilian organization dedicated to the education of local citizens and elected officials, and the support of the men and women of the sea services and their families. You need not have served in the military to be a member of the Navy League. For information on the Oak Harbor Area Council, those interested may attend a business meeting or go to The next meeting will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, at the Officer’s Club on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.

USS Ronald Reagan Public Affairs

USS RONALD REAGAN, At Sea (NNS) — Tactical Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 139 held a change of command ceremony aboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76), June 23. Cmdr. Russell Jones relieved Cmdr. Christopher Middleton as commanding officer of the “Cougars” during a ceremony on the ship’s forecastle. Capt. Hamlin Ortiz-Marty, commander, Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 14, said that since he has been in command of the air wing, he has seen nothing but excellence from VAQ-139. “Everywhere we go the Cougars have been excelling and working hard to make sure that these machines were available to deliver the desired effects in the combat zone over and over again,” said Ortiz-Marty. “And I am really proud to be associated with you guys.” Middleton deployed as the VAQ-139 executive officer embarked on board Ronald Reagan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2009. He assumed command in 2010, deploying again with Carrier Air Wing 14 on board Ronald Reagan in support of Operations Tomodachi, New Dawn, and OEF. During his tenure, the Cougars were recognized with the 2010 Battle “E,” and the Admiral Arthur Radford Award for the outstanding Prowler Squadron in the U.S. Navy. During his farewell address, Middleton expressed how privileged he was to serve as the commanding officer of

such a dynamic group of sailors. “Your choice to be a team is why we are successful,” said Middleton. “Our nation is better and safer because of you.” During the ceremony, Ortiz-Marty presented Middleton with his second Meritorious Service Medal award for exceptional leadership during his tour as commanding officer. “I am going to miss you,” said Middleton. “But Cmdr. Jones is ready, and the best part is it’s a small Navy, and I’ll get to see you again.” Jones said he has the opportunity that very few in life have – to land his dream job, and work with an outstanding group of professionals who amaze him everyday with their level of effort and dedication. Jones reported to VAQ-139 as the executive officer in June 2010, and has remained very busy, with more than 1,800 flight hours in an EA-6B Prowler, including 475 hours in support of combat operations. Jones will be the last Cougars commanding officer to fly an EA-6B Prowler since the Prowler is scheduled to transition to the EA-18 Growler at the end of 2011. “I try not to dwell on the transition too much, because we have to stay focused and finish,” said Jones. “We will plan up to it, and in the back of my mind it is very exciting.” While the Cougars will miss Middleton, they also look forward to Jones’ leadership. “It was a pleasure serving with (Middleton),” said Aviation Structural Mechanic (Equipment) 3rd Class Katerina Neff. “He will be greatly missed, but the future looks bright and we have high hopes with Cmdr. Jones.” Ronald Reagan Carrier Strike Group is comprised of Ronald Reagan, guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG 62) and Destroyer Squadron (DESRON) 7, which includes guided-missile destroyer USS Preble (DDG 88). Embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 14 includes the “Black Knights” of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA)154, the “Argonauts” of VFA-147, the “Blue Diamonds” of VFA-146, the “Death Rattlers” of Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 323, the “Black Eagles” of Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 113, the “Cougars” of VAQ 139, the “Providers” of Carrier Logistics Support Squadron (VRC) 30 and the “Black Knights” of Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron (HS) 4.

Organizers say it’s designed to be fun for the whole family and features free admission, free parking and free entertainment. “Our church originated the festival 17 years ago,” said Pastor Matt Chambers. “There was no public fireworks display on South Whidbey and we thought it would be good for the community.” The event was successful from the beginning and now there are activities for the whole family. The afternoon typically starts around 2 p.m., with inflatables and activities for children. There are

also food vendors and a free shuttle service from Freeland’s Park ‘n Ride lot at Trinity Lutheran Church and in front of the Payless Food store. Entertainment begins at 6 p.m. and will feature the local pop-rock-alternative band, For the Birds; the prop comic Alex Zerbe; and the marimba band Ruzivo. There will also be a flyover by The Blackjacks, a public flying club. The patriotic program, with vocalist Marissa Rice, is called ‘Remember 9/11’ will begin at 10 p.m. Fireworks will be set off over Holmes Harbor at dark.

Monday • Start your Indpendence Day with a pancake breakfast put on by the North Whidbey Firefighters’ Association. Breakfast will be served from 7 to 11 a.m. at the Taylor Road Fire Station. Cost is $5.50 for adults, children ages 6 to 12 are $3.50 and children under 6 are free. The station is located at 3440 Taylor Rd. • Make a day of it Monday in Oak Harbor with the chamber’s Old Fashioned Fourth OH July. In addition to the carni-

val, there will be a vendor marketplace from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and of course the grand parade, which begins at 11 a.m. Due to construction, the parade route will be slightly different this year. “The parade will start by the marina and go down Pioneer Way, onto Bayshore Drive and back to Pioneer Way,” said Elise Vogelman, the coordinator of this year’s event. Vogelman said there are typically between 80 and 100 entries in the parade, which is being sponsored this year by Island Drug. The grand marshal is Karl Krieg of Krieg Concrete Products, Inc. After the parade, organizers urge everyone to stick around and pick their spot to watch the fireworks at dusk at Windjammer Park. “It’s always a blast,” said Vogelman. “There are fun family games, it’s a great time to get out and show your patriotism and enjoy the fireworks. It’s just a fun day all around.” — Reporter Dennis Connolly contributed to this story.

DOD grant seeks to make a difference for young readers High number of military dependents made school district eligible A new three-year federal grant will focus on helping Oak Harbor’s youngest students get a solid start in reading. Oak Harbor School District learned this week it will receive a $2.16 million grant from the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) fund to improve reading for children in preschool through fifth-grade. The new reading emphasis will have an immediate impact on Oak Harbor elementary schools and preschool, with teachers coming for a week of intensive training before the start of the next school year. The three-year project, titled “Early Reading, Lifelong Success,” is patterned after a program already in place at Crescent Harbor Elementary and Olympic View Elementary. The program uses a nationally-known independent group of reading specialists to work with Oak Harbor teachers to improve how reading is taught in the classroom. “The success of this grant is thanks in large part to the great work of our staff at those schools,” Superintendent Rick Schulte told the school board Monday. “This is going to take what we’re already doing and doing it bigger and better.” The grant will get started in August

when regular classroom, special education, remedial, and preschool teachers, as well as instructional assistants, return early to complete a week-long special reading academy. This will be followed by classroom visits and technical assistance from consultants at each school, as well as further training sessions. “Successful readers have more success throughout their schooling in all subjects,” said Dr. Lance Gibbon, assistant superintendent and lead author of the 70-plus page grant application. “Reading is at the core of all learning.” Oak Harbor School District is eligible for the DoDEA grant due to its high number of military-dependent students. Although the grant impacts all elementary students, it requires tracking the military dependents to specifically see if the program is having the desired effect of raising the reading abilities of those students. “In a time of budget cuts and freezes, it is a pleasure to be able to move forward with a vision for strengthening literacy in our preschool and elementary schools,” Gibbon said. “This is just one of the many benefits of being a part of a Navy community.” The idea behind the grant is to give

Oak Harbor’s literacy coaching team of (left to right) Kim Kellogg, Paula Seaman, Susan Kovar, and Lynn Goebel are anxious to put a little fun into the art of teaching reading, thanks to a new $2.16 million grant. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE OAK HARBOR SCHOOL DISTRICT teachers the tools and the professional training to more effectively work with the varied levels of reading abilities in each classroom, he said. Each classroom has a variety of learners, Gibbon explained. Some students are advanced readers, while others may not have been exposed to much reading at

home. Others might have an impediment to reading or a problem with comprehension. “What we want to do is give teachers and instructional assistants the training and support to better assess reading


Cast members of the Missoula Children’s Theatre production of “The Little Mermaid,” including tour actor Dana Szarzynski, pictured at far left. The play was performed Saturday at the NAS Whidbey Youth Center.


FISH | FROM PAGE 1 with the youth center staff, a theater makeup class for the kids and an improv class with the teens,” said Fletcher. “Missoula has a tried and true method for teaching,” said MCT tour director Libby Hollinger, who comes from a long line of teachers. “This method is so unique and it works.” With only five days to rehearse, the Missoula team has its work cut out for it. But the youth involved become more and more confident as the week progresses, and even though it’s a lot to remember, they say the experience is more about fun than anything else. “I like watching the Prince fight the dragon because the costume is so cool,” said 11-yearold Elysium Anselme, who played Delia, one of the mermaids. “It was funny how he gave it a breath mint.” “I like it because I’m into drama. I’m a showy person,” said 13-year-old Madison Pewitt, who played another mermaid, Gil. “I get to express who I am.” Pewitt had an even bigger challenge than the rest of the cast — a last-minute conflict forced the original Gil to drop out, so Pewitt took over the role on Wednesday. Plus, she had the challenge of having to play a boy. “I have three brothers, so it wasn’t so hard,” she said. “You just have to be concentrated on your role.” “It was hard memorizing the lines, but I like getting to be the queen and having a main part,” said Lyndsay Duchnowski, 11. Casey Quijano, 13, played the Prince. He set the bar high for the other actors by memorizing his lines in one night. “They were challenging lines, but it was great to learn them,” he said. “It was fun working with everyone and not care about messing up.” Casey’s mother, Amanda Quijano, had three children involved in the production. Besides Casey, her son, Nathaniel, was a sea scout and her daughter, Gabrielle, was a seasider. It was a busy week, she said, but well

worth it. “They all had different practice times, but they came home and sang all the songs together. They loved it,” she said. “It was so much fun. You commit one week and then have this performance. It was great.” While there are many different rewards to being involved with Missoula Children’s Theatre, Hollinger said working with the kids is definitely the best. “We don’t know them, we don’t know anything about them — we have no preconceived notions about whether they’re difficult to work with, whether they have behavior issues,” she said. “We just see fresh faces.” Hollinger said it’s great to watch the kids come alive on stage. “They may hold back during the rehearsals and we’re always telling them to ‘let yourself go,’” she said. “But something seems to happen every Saturday morning when we have that dress rehearsal and they’re in costume. Then they’re on the stage during the performance and they see Mom in the audience, and things just magically change.” This is the third time the NASWI Youth Center has received a grant to host the Missoula Children’s Theatre program, according to Fletcher. The program is made possible by Commander Naval Installations Command. The Missoula Children’s Theatre was formed in 1970, and began tours in 1974. Today there are 45 teams of two who travel to all 50 states, 16 countries, four provinces and two territories. According to Hollinger, MCT will have performances in 1,200 communities this year, appearing before 750,000 audience members and giving 65,000 cast members a chance to be in the spotlight.

GRANT | FROM PAGE 8 abilities and provide effective lessons based on a student’s strengths and needs,” he said. “This includes assessing students’ abilities and providing teaching strategies for different circumstances.” Through the grant, Oak Harbor will be contracting with the Consortium on Reading Excellence (CORE), a private firm made up of teachers who specialize in reading strategies. The CORE program is the centerpiece of the grant, based on their proven success both locally and around the nation. CORE is the group already working with Crescent Harbor and Olympic View elementary schools. “CORE is not ‘one more thing’,” notes Literacy Coach Kim Kellogg. “The facilitators and the CORE

Reading Academy focus on effective reading strategies to use with Storytown (Oak Harbor’s elementary reading curriculum) and other resources we already have in place. The strategies are practical, easy to use, and will really strengthen our reading instruction.” Paula Seaman will serve as the full-time project director for the grant. This past year, Seaman completed her administrative internship and principal’s credential at Broad View Elementary, while also serving as the LAP (Learning Assistance Program) teacher for the school. “This is a great opportunity for Oak Harbor,” Seaman said. “I have been so impressed by CORE and I know this will make a positive difference for our staff and kids.” Rounding out the team is current coach Kellogg, and longtime Oak

When this grant is done in three years, the literacy coaches will continue the work of the CORE program. “We believe we have a really good program in place that will dramatically improve learning for Oak Harbor students,” Schulte told the school board. He said that next year, the school district plans to apply for another grant – this time for the secondary schools. Each school can only receive one grant, but the possibility for $2 million in professional development for secondary school is on the horizon. “This is a great opportunity at our elementary schools and we’re anxious to expand this to the rest of our schools if given the chance,” Schulte said.

Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training is a series of bilateral military exercises between the U.S. Navy and the Armed Forces of Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. In addition, Vietnam participates in a CARAT-like skills exchange.

MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) — Navy Personnel Command (NPC) leaders said permanent change-ofstation (PCS) order-writing is efficiently operating. “We are fully-funded for PCS through the end of the fiscal year (FY) 11,� said Capt. Mary Lewellyn, Navy distribution management director. “Our current allocation of $667.5 million will fund a little more than 71,000 orders.� Just a few months earlier a shortfall in PCS funding was felt Fleetwide. While Congress wanted to pass a defense appropriation bill, insufficient manpower funding resulted in decreased lead time for sailors receiving PCS orders. The average lead time between Sailors receiving orders and transferring was two months or less. “The current lead times have improved significantly

and are approaching the NPC goal of sailors getting their orders four-to-six months prior to their rotation dates, said Lewellyn. “We expect to meet our goal by the end of the FY in getting most Sailors four months lead time, and sailors moving to and from overseas assignments six months lead time. This level of funding moves us closer to calling the PCS obligation policy change (POPC) complete,� said Lewellyn. POPC, outlined in NAVADMIN 191/07 and directed by the Department of Defense, affected the way PCS orders are funded. The services now must obligate all PCS costs when orders are issued, versus when orders are executed. “Think of this policy change as the difference between a credit card and a debit card,� said Rear Adm. Donald Quinn, deputy chief of Navy personnel. “Prior to 2009,

Permanent change of station order-writing has been funded through the end of the fiscal year, which should give active duty Navy families more lead time to plan for moves. OFFICIAL U.S. NAVY FILE PHOTO

PCS orders were written as if on a credit card. The Navy would pay the bill once the service member executed the move. Today, orders are written as if on a debit card. Once the orders are released, the Navy is charged.� “The policy changed three years ago, but now the focus is about regaining lead time,� said Bowers. “The reason we’ve done so well this year, following the continuing resolution, is because we’ve ‘bought ahead,’� said Cmdr. Kendra Bowers, deputy director Navy distribution management.

According to Bowers, NPC writes approximately 70,000 PCS orders annually. The ‘buy ahead’ funds approximately 17,000 more orders. “We have funding and we are releasing orders,� said Bowers. “If sailors do not have orders in-hand and they are within 30 to 60 days of their transfer date, they need to call the NPC customer service center or have their chain of command call.� Sailors with PCS questions can call 1-866-U-ASK-NPC; email at or us the self-help NPC Knowledge Base webpage.

Firewood, Fuel & Stoves

NOTICE Washington State law requires wood sellers to provide an invoice (receipt) that shows the s e l l e r ’s a n d b u y e r ’s name and address and the date delivered. The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. weightsMeasures/ Firewoodinformation.aspx

Who has jurisdiction over the archaeological site on SE Pioneer Way?

The Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation (DAHP) has responsibility to coordinate all activities related to the site. The Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation recognizes that archaeological sites are nonrenewable resources that contribute to our sense of history and place and define our collective shared heritage. The DAHP works closely with tribal governments around the State and in this case is closely working with representatives from the Swinomish, Stillaguamish, Tulalip and Suquamish Nations on how best to study, protect and preserve the archaeological record exposed in Pioneer Way.
