3 Friday, April 21, 2006 A crude wooden sign with the words “For You Lady” carved in it sits near a memorial statue once left in disarray. That memorial has now been refurbished thanks to the dedicated efforts of a group National Guard reservists assigned to the Office of Administrative Review for the Detention of Enemy Combatants (OARDEC). Erected by a group of Cuban migrant workers in July 1995, the memorial reflects love and respect for their favorite ‘lady,’ Army Spc. Ann Terrell, 24, who died in a single-truck accident on March 28, 1995, near McCalla Hill at Sherman Ave. The memorial was constructed near where she died. Thanks to this motivated group of service members this once forgotten ‘lady’ has been transformed over the past month and given a new life. Staff Sgt. Trinette Fletcher spearheaded the project and recalls on how the feel-good project fell into her lap. “I actually received an email from the OIC, that I thought was current, asking for help to renovate the statue,” said Fletcher. “I responded to the email, but I never heard back. So, I checked with our current OIC and we realized the email I had responded to, was a year old. The project had just fallen through the cracks. “It was originally assigned to a former servicemember as a community service project to add to her evaluation,” added Fletcher. “The problem was clear. This memorial was a wreck, and it needed repair. I though it was an important project. I didn’t want it to be overlooked that she was here. So I made it a personal goal to try to get the statue repaired.” Fletcher, who started out with no supplies, scrambled to give the forgotten project a jumpstart. “At first I didn’t have the resources, so I talked to various departments on base about the project,” Fletcher said. “We needed paint, garden equipment, power washers and a truckload of rock. Public Work’s Self Help Division provided us with just about everything we needed, including a dedication plaque in exchange for a box of cookies,” laughs Fletcher. “It has cost us nothing but time.” And time is what they gave. Fletcher and a group of her fellow service members have put in more than 100 volunteer hours into the rehab project. “In between getting sunburned and dropping tools on our feet,” said Fletcher, “we juggled work, coming out on Saturdays, and any other time we could spare.” Fletcher’s roommate and coworker, Sgt. Lisa Bynoe, has been an integral part of the restoration team and feels this renovation is important. “I look at this project as paying tribute to a fallen soldier who did her duty,” said Bynoe. Little is known about Terrell other than stories passed down from word of mouth and a few newspaper archives. She was assigned to the Joint Task Force 160’s 64th Joint Logistic Support Group and was stationed out of Fort Hood,Female Soldier statue refurbishedBy JO2 (AW) Honey Nixon, Public Affairs Office Photo by JO2(AW) Honey Nixon Photo by JO2(AW) Honey Nixon Earth Day activitiesApril 21 10 a.m. TBD Pick up supplies and basewide clean-up, regroup at Ferry Landing to turn in collections. 3 p.m. Picnic at Ferry Landing. 7 p.m. Shell presentation by Deenie Burns at the MWR Community Library.

There is a new Sunday morning tradition in GTMO. An informal Scotch-doubles golf outing tees off at 9 a.m. every Sunday at the base golf course “Yatera Seca.” For the past two months, seven or eight co-gender teams gather at the pavilion near tee no. 1 to begin an 18-hole alternating-shots odyssey. In the states, it’s called a ‘Jack and Jill’ golf format, here in GTMO, the group calls themselves the “Sunday Swingers.” The event was the idea of Bill and Joanne Willey, long-time residents of GTMO who are currently on their second tour of duty on the station. Bill is a civilian with the Public Works department, and says back in 1988 he and his wife Joanne started up a regular weekend golf event with several other couples. In the past few months the Willeys noticed more and more couples out on the fairways, and decided it was time to bring back the format. Bill says starting up the Sunday co-gender golf game was actually an act of selfishness on his part, “I like it when Joanne gets out there and plays golf with me, and she’s more likely to join me if other women are also playing." The “Sunday Swingers” were born. The format is simple. Men and women take turns teeing off and the second shot is always made by the partner. It is an event that can test the strongest of relationships. Assistant Fire Chief Eric Tucker plays with the Sunday Swingers and he says back in the Seattle area a similar group is known as the ‘Divorcee League.’ Luckily, there has been no bloodshed on the GTMO course, and all of the married participants still appear to be speaking to one another.

The McDonald’s franchise here is celebrating a big anniversary. It was on Thursday, April 24, 1986, that McDonald’s Guantanamo Bay officially opened its doors for business. The ribbon-cutting was held at 10:30 a.m., at which time the VIPs got headof-the-line privileges, and then the doors officially opened to the public at 11 a.m. I was part of that grand-opening. As a First Class Journalist, assigned as the editor of the ‘Daily Gazette,’ I had the privilege of recording the day’s events for posterity. And believe me, it was a grand event. Here in GTMO, it was the best thing to happen to us since sliced bread. Don’t laugh. I am serious. Step back in time 20 years. Here in GTMO, things were not nearly as modern as they are today. When McDonald’s opened, we still didn’t have cable television, just one AFRTS TV channel. All our television shows were about six months behind what everyone in the states was seeing. We had a milk plant here that made milk from powder. Bread was frozen and shipped in on the barge. The list of things we didn’t have was very long. Then along comes McDonald’s. For the first time we had soft-serve ice cream, hot French fries, and a decent hamburger (better than those served in the galley at that time). All of a sudden, we had a ‘little bit of home’ right here in GTMO. For many of us here that day, it was like our birthday and Christmas all rolled into one. From my own personal and printed observations of the day, there were 86 different items on the menu including Big Macs, regular hamburgers and cheeseburgers, French fries, milk shakes, apple pies, and my personal favorite, softserve ice cream. In its first 12 hours of operation, from 11 a.m. until it closed at 11 p.m., McDonald’s served 2,595 customers. I have to let you in on a little secret, McDonald’s might have had 2,595 individual sales that day, but many of us went back more than once some us, including me, went back four of five times. It was a fabulous day. In recognition of McDonald’s 20th anniversary here in Guantanamo Bay, they are offering a special treat to all their faithful GTMO customers.On Monday, April 24, from 10:30 a.m. until closing, McDonald’s will be selling regular hamburgers for $.39, and regular cheeseburgers for $.49. Limit 15 specialoffer sandwiches per customer. “We just want to say ‘Thank you,’ to all our GTMO customers,” said Tony Lewis, McDonald’s manager. Step back in time 20 years, and enjoy. The special offer is only available on April 24.Guantanamo Bay's McDonalds has been here since 1986 and will mark it's 20th anniversary on April 24. Burger's will be marked back to thirty-nine cents for this special occasion.

5 Friday, April 21, 2006 Real World; Road Rules contestants were pushed to the limitBy JO1 Igo Wordu, Public Affairs OfficePhoto by JO1 Igo Wordu Photo by JO1 Igo WorduErvin Diaz assists Marie Brown with some of her scuba gear shortly before the teams' relay contest. Continued on page 9 'If only this one would fit.' Red team sorts through a tool box in search for the right tools during one of the contests at the Hobby shop last Thursday.The teens in Guantanamo Bay were given the opportunity to participate in a week of challenging events and exciting learning activities. About 20 teens participated in Real World Road Rules challenge contest. It was part of activities organized and managed by the Oasis Teen Center during spring break. The contest, which was planned to keep GTMO teens busy during spring break, kicked off on Monday, April 9 and ended on Friday 14. Activities included a scavenger hunt, kayak relay race at Kittery Beach and lots of other challenging contests. On one day they had the opportunity to enter a Firehouse filled with “fake” smoke to find a hidden alarm. On another day at the Hobby shop they tested their technical wits while they sorting through scrap metal and run down vehicles in order to find workable motor parts. The battle between the two teams ensued as the days went on.. Under the guidance and supervision of the Oasis Teen Center staff, teens that took part showed just how far the concept ‘teamwork’ could carry a committed team. Every task assigned to the teams required a collaborative effort of all the team members to accomplish each mission. At the beginning of each day the teams were briefed by the Oasis Teen Center Child and Youth Program Administrator, Terrill Hill, and Trecia Anderson, the Teen Coordinator of each days missions. “We have to make sure that each participant understood what is required of them before they began each day,” said Terrill. “We also let them know that they can always call on the Teen Center staff should they require any kind of assistance during the contest.” The two teams were assigned numerous tasks daily, which they had to complete by the end of each day. The team that accomplished their assignment the fastest, won the day’s contest. The losing team, however, had to vote off a member of their team whom they thought made the least impact. For the scavenger hunt, different parts of a telephone set were placed in different secret locations around the base. The teams had no idea what the items were. The only clue they had was a vague description of where each piece was located. It was up to the teams to piece the clues together in order to find the items and put the phone together. Team Purple hosted a luncheon at the Teen Center and Team Red a hosted a “Bar-BQue” party on the final day of the contest. Each team was required to be able to have at least fifty people attend their party. Both teams exceeded this requirement with several friends and parents attending. Although the participants were always hard at work, some of the contests gave them the opportunity to unwind – they went snorkeling at the Kittery Beach. MWR Certified Diving Instructor, Ervin Diaz, showed the teens how to properly used snorkeling masks and fins along with teaching water safety tips. The participants who have never snorkeled were given a short swim lesson just before the relay contest began. “The rules are same as the original contest you see on television,” said Trecia Anderson, one of the Oasis staff, referring to the MTV’s Road Rule/ Real World contest. “At the end of all the contests, the team with the highest members left will be declared the winner. It is also a learning experience for the teens. Some of them are performing these tasks for the first time ever.” The contest ended with a party honoring the team mem-

7 Friday, April 21, 2006Texas with the 418 Transportation Company. At the time of the accident, Terrell is reported to have swerved trying to avoid people standing at a nearby bus stop. She left behind a husband and a son. “The story behind the memorial is that there was a group of Cuban migrants, who were very fond of Specialist Terrell at the time she was stationed here,” said Fletcher. “They took it upon themselves to sneak out at night and build the statue little by little. At the time, it was frowned upon because people didn’t feel it was appropriate to have Cuban workers doing this.” Fletcher felt that it was important that the neglect of this soldier’s memorial did not continue, and believes the goodSoldier statue cont'd...Continued from page 3spirit of the project spread quickly. “We received a tremendous “hoorah” from everyone involved, from my chain of command, to people riding by in their cars offering us water,” she said. “I thought it was sad that she lost her life trying to save other’s lives,” Fletcher continued. “Watching the progress has been great. Everyone agreed there was a need. I am honored to be a part of this. I haven’t been told no, not even once.” Although Terrell’s statue is hollow white plaster, the amount of respect and love put into its construction and refurbishment is enough to make sure this ‘lady’s’ life is always remembered.

8 Friday, April 21, 2006Archery Club hits the mark in GTMOBill Keenan has more than twenty years of practice in the art of Archery. One term for an archer is a toxopholite, which derives from Ancient Greek.By JO1 Robert Lamb, Public Affairs OfficeAngie Burnett is fast becoming a real 'Maid Marion' of sorts. She can put a dozen arrows in a six inch circle at both 20 and 30 yds. If anyone stationed or working in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba is looking for a new and interesting sport or hobby, look no further. The sport of Archery is making a comeback and just may be what the GTMO community is looking for. A new Archery Club received the “OK” from NAVSTA Commanding Officer, CAPT Mark Leary, in January of this year. The archery range is located on Rogers Road, just behind the Downtown Lyceum, at the old pistol range. It’s been about six years since anyone has used the range for such a sport. The idea for the range came about when Bill Keenan, David Burnett and ABE1(AW) Mica Cochran found out there was available space for range and felt it was a sport that anyone could participate in; man, women or child. The number one concern that the command had when this new club was being formed was ‘Safety.’ “The Archery club is geared towards having fun and recreation, but our number priority while at the range is to provide a safe shooting environment. We keep a medical kit on hand and all the archery instructors are emergency first response qualified,” said David Burnett. The range has an in-depth set of “Range Rules,” and everyone who participates must sign and understand them before handling Archery equipment. “Children may become involved, but they must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. They also must be old enough to read and understand the range rules and be at least eight years of age,” said Vice President Mica Cochran. Another concern that was raised while forming this club was the access to Archery equipment. Morale, Welfare and Recreation doesn’t have Archery equipment readily available, and most people in the community don’t have a bow and arrow in their closet. But for archery enthusiasts that problem was also resolved. “We have plenty of bows within the membership, and we allow new people to use our equipment to find out what they like prior to making a purchase,” said Cochran. Once an archer has handled a bow and arrow at the range and feels comfortable with their new hobby, they might choose to invest in some equipment. After the investment has been made, the equipment must be registered with Weapons Dept. within 24 hours ofPhoto by Bill Keenen Photo by Bill KeenenWorship Services Catholic Catholic Mass (Main Chapel) Tuesday-Friday, noon Daily Mass (Cobre Chapel) Confession, Saturday, 4 p.m. Vigil Mass, 5 p.m. Sunday Mass, 9 a.m. (Cobre Chapel) Eucharistic Adoration, daily 24 hrs.

At least once a month the group hosts a post-round cook-out at the Cart Shack where good food and fairway fables are shared. Individuals don’t have to be part of a couple to participate. Interested golfers need only show up around 9 a.m. at tee no. 1 on Sunday and they will be paired with whoever is available. Just be sure to bring patience and a healthy sense of humor.

To be successful as an athlete in this sport requires years of practice and development of both mental and physical skills. Archers develop techniques to fully control their body movement, their endurance and their mental steadiness when preparing to meet the challenge of shooting targets. The club presently has a dozen members that shoot just about every weekend. They may not be in a class with Robin Hood, but local archers Angie Burnett and Bill Keenan can handle a bow and arrow pretty well according to Vice President Mica Cochran. “Both are shooting at levels far beyond their experience and skill level and Angie Burnett has only been shooting for the past month.” Keenan, on the other hand has been shooting for around twenty-years and is a very refined and an accurate Archer. Bill Keenan, who’s been here a while, remembers when there was an unorganized range in use.“The new range is much better, and that the old range was never actually organized as an official club before.” The new Archery Club’s rules are tailored to this range and are based upon the Amateur Archers Association practice range rules.Membership is free and open to all base residents.

The teens enjoyed the activities but would like to see more challenges next year and would like the structure of the event to include a week-long 24-hour event. “We are not sure that we can handle that,” stated Terrill. “The teens have more energy than we do, but we are going to do everything in our power to make sure that Real World Road Rules is bigger and better next year.” Mohamed Abdullah won a PS2 system while the rest of the participants were given a fifty-dollar gift certificates to the NEX.Photo by Lindean GrantKieresten Moore, Marie Brown, Mohammed Abdull, Arianna Pointdexter and Doug Lamb receive their prizes after the Real World Road Rules contest.
