Friday, Feb. 29, 2008 Vol. 65 No. 09 Association celebrates Black History Month, diversity with GalaSee 'GALA', page 7Story by MC2 Kim Williams NAVSTA Public Affairs R&B songstress Blu Cantrell rocks the GAAA gala audience Feb. 23 as shes sings her hit single 'Hit Em' Up Style' from her 2003 album 'So Blu'.photo by MC2 Kim WilliamsThe Guantanamo Bay African American Association (GAAA) held its 2008 Gala the evening of Feb. 23 at the Windjammer ballroom. More than 275 guests joined the organization in its celebration of black history and diversity in America. The GAAA prides itself on cultural diversity, but also believe it is important to celebrate the many successes of blacks throughout history and educate today's society about the privileges blacks now enjoy and should take advantage of that once were not available to people of color. This year's theme reflected one such luxury—the right to vote. "We want to ensure that people understand that there were many obstacles, such as slavery, that were overcome for everyone [not just white males] to be able to vote and it would be an injustice for every person not to take advantage of this right," said Information Systems Technician 1st Class (SW/AW) Carlos Barnes. "It is your personal choice on who you vote for, just take in mind to value your vote and vote your values," added Barnes. The evening was full of events that celebrated cultural diversity, freedom of expression and unity. Many members of the GTMO community used their many talents to honor the event's cause. The organization sponsored an essay contest at W.T. Sampson High school in which students wrote about this year's gala theme: voting our values, valuing our vote. The essay contest's winner, Hayden Kemp, was honored during the gala. A diverse group of children from the MWR School of Dance's Hip Hop class performed during the event with their display of performing arts showcasing the positive impact dance has had on children in the GTMO community. The guest speaker for the evening was former NFL football player Don McNeal who is currently active in his community with associations that assist youth and adults. McNeal shared stories about his life and the adversities he faced and overcame enroute to becoming a professional football player. Army Sgt. Lavelle Jones, a local poet and proprietor of 'Cultural Expressions', an open mic forum that takes place every Friday night in Tierra Kay housing unit 97, contributed his talents to the evenings festivities as well. Jones talked about the importance of participating in the gala. "I decided to perform at the Gala when I was asked by Carlos[GAAA vice president]. I originally talked to him about

AD1 Corelle Street USNH/SARPLocal News GTMO provides an ideal environment for the occurrence of skin infections; namely warm, humid temperatures, close living quarters, and vectors that cause scrapes or sores [i.e. bug bites, ingrown hairs, sports injuries, sharp coral, blisters]. Many skin infections will have increased swelling, redness, and cloudy drainage. Careful monitoring is needed, along with good hygiene, to prevent these infections from spreading. FACT: Most skin infections are caused from your own germs or bacteria [Staphylococcus Aureus] living on your skin that get into your sores. Most of these 'staph' infections are successfully treated with common antibiotics [medications that kill bacteria]. FACT: There is a type of normal skin bacteria that is not killed by the common antibiotics. It is called Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus or MRSA. MRSA requires more specific medical attention, to ensure the correct antibiotic is given to kill these hardy skin bacteria. FACT: “ No pediatric patient in GTMO over the past 2 years has had MRSA! ” stated Dr. Amaio, the pediatrician at the Naval Hospital. FACT: An average of 1-2 adults a month*, over the past 2 years, have had MRSA cultured (laboratory growth of a bacteria) from theirFacts about Infections in GTMOwounds. Only two adults a year required hospitalization for treatment with antibiotics given through a vein. Antibiotics given by mouth were effective for the other adults with MRSA wounds. *This rate is very small, compared to CONUS populations per 1000. FACT: MRSA can spread very easily through skin to skin contact, or by touching surfaces that come in contact with a draining wound. It is important to keep wounds covered, and to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds (the length of time it takes to sing the Alphabet song) with lots of lathering soap and water. Alcohol based sanitizers are also 94 99 percent effective in killing MRSA on hands! The more you practice good hand washing– the safer you are from contracting MRSA! Also, daily cleaning of all surfaces that come in contact with MRSA will stop additional spread. FACT: EVERY culture tested at the Naval Hospital laboratory is reviewed by the laboratory officer, and reported to the infection control officer and preventive medicine officer for review of trends among our populations and to watch for potential outbreaks.

If the x-ray machine operator determines a bag contains a questionable item, the inspector will request the owner of the bag to open it for further inspection. Passengers must remove their coat, jacket, blazer or any outer wear that may conceal prohibited items. Passengers are also required to remove their shoes before walking through metal detectors.

Chairs will be available near the metal detector to allow passengers a place to sit down while putting their shoes and other clothing back on. When passengers have removed all items, they will walk through the metal detector. If the alarm activates, passengers will again be asked to check their person and empty their pockets. A check of these items will be done by the screener. Once the passengers have rechecked themselves, they will walk through the metal detector. If the walk through detector activates a second time, passengers will undergo additional screening. Note: If a member travelling in uniform notifies the screener that they are wearing steel-toed boots, the screener can opt to use the hand held wand without having the member go through the metal detector twice. Additional screening consists of agents asking the passenger to step to the side. Agents will briefly explain the hand wand inspection procedures. The passengers will be asked to stand with their feet apart and arms raised parallel with the floor. The screener will pass the wand over the entire body, close to the person, but without actually touching the passenger with the wand. If the wand alarm activates, the passenger will be asked to remove hats, belts etc. for closer inspection. When the screener determines that there is no contraband on the person, the passenger will be released to continue travel. Under no circumstances will AMC personnel conduct pat down searches, frisk, of passengers. If a physical search is required, security forces will be contacted for assistance. If the passenger refuses to be screened at any point during the screening process, they will be denied entry to the passenger terminal sterile area IAW AMCI-24 101 VOL 14.

5Friday, Feb. 29, 2008Feature Photo by MC1 Igo WorduStory, photos by MC2 Kim Williams NAVSTA Public Affairs GTMO youth experience life in the brigSea Cadets Katie Basel and Caleb Murcin watch as MA2 Sean Fitzgerald demonstrates a take down procedure used to restrain combative subjects during the Sea Cadets visit to the NAVSTA Brig Feb. 23. Since 1958 the Naval Sea Ca det Corps has been committed to providing American youth with a drug and alcohol free environment to foster their leadership abilities, broaden their horizons through hands-on training and guide them to becoming mature young adults. Members of the Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) chapter of the organization experienced first hand what the alternative to positive behavior and good morale character could lead to during a visit to the NAVSTA Brig Feb. 23. Brig personnel along with members of the NAVSTA Security Department demonstrated, from start to finish, what a brig inmate would experience after being admitted to the facility. The cadets participated in several scenarios including fingerprinting processes, proper handcuffing procedures, take down techniques and other inprocessing practices "Our role is inprocessing and familiarization with the brig," said Ship's Serviceman 1st Class (SW/AW) Yolanda Green, NAVSTA Brig. "We are going to show the cadets riot control and other techniques that we use to restrain our residents. In the process, we are teaching them not to abuse their authority as well being positive role models and setting a good example for them to follow and apply to everyday life situations," said Green. The group's visit to the brig also showed them problem solving skills and a broader sense of what correctional facility staff endure on a daily basis. Cadets will visit the NAVSTA security department in the next few weeks to participate in a marksmanship training course using the F.A.T.S simulator. Local Sea Cadet leadership consists of community volunteers varying from active duty servicemembers to civilians employees. "We love this program and teaching children skills they can use throughout life," said husband and wife duo Christine and Kelly White, Sea Cadet commanding officer and executive officer respectively. "This particular group has really come together and support one another," said Christine White. The Sea Cadets/ Navy League CadetsSee CADETS page 8


Friday, Feb. 29, 20086Sports Photo by MC1 Igo WorduThe Women’s Lady Eagles softball team blasted through their season for a total of nine wins, zero losses and zero ties. This series of unfortunate events for their opponents began Jan. 22 with a blowout victory over the ‘Rockstars’ and ended Thursday evening Feb. 21 with a 10 to one victory over the Lady Pirates from W.T. Sampson High School. Coach Lt. Ursula Galvez commanded her team to exceed their own expectations and take personal pride in their performance. The girls listened. “I give credit to the entire team,” said Galvez. “Great teamwork and support of each other was what made us winners." The Lady Eagles is led by one of the best female shortstops Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) has seen in a long time, Hospitalman Roxanne Guitierrez. Third baseman Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Danielle Lowe, who has a gun for an arm is also in the superstar line-up along with with consistent pitcher Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class Megan Haney. Together they make an awesome trio and with a supporting cast of strong hitters and talented fielders these ladies are being recruited every game by other coaches to play in the upcoming Captains Cup co-ed league. “I feel that the credit is everyone’s,” saidLady Eagles finish season undefeatedStory, photos by MC1 Robert Lamb NAVSTA Public Affairs Hospital Corpsman 1st Class Cynthia Williams. “All the ladies worked hard, it was togetherness and a family setting throughout the season.” The Lady Eagles launched enough timely hits and superb fielding to almost lock up the season by the first of February, not even halfway through their season of the Captains Cup Women’s Softball season. Even though the team could have kicked back and enjoyed their early victories, fielders Jennifer Virgin, Mayda Bonilla and Michelle Robarge never relented, cinching their team’s undefeated record heading into the Softball Tournament, played after publication of this article. “The whole entire team did a fantastic job working together to remain undefeated, but we need more community involvement for a successful competitive woman’s softball season,” added Robarge. MWR could only attract four women’s teams this season and the consensus of the Lady Eagles was that the team called the ‘Rockstars’ was their best competition this season overall. “The ‘RockStars’ were the best team we faced this year, but the girls from W.T. Sampson High School have improved so much since the beginning of the season ... they didn’t mess around,” said Bonilla. The women finished their Captains Cup Softball regular season strong and very excited for their future challenges. Unfortunately their opponent the GTMO Latinas forfeited the game due to the fact they didn't have enough players present. By the time of publication the Lady Eagles went on to play the Rockstars for the Tournament Championship Feb. 28. “Yes, the season was too short. We have summer year around in GTMO; therefore, softball season should be extended longer than playing nine games,” mentioned Haney. Regardless of how short the season or whether only four teams played this year, the Lady Eagles took on the challenge and remained undefeated just as the Hydroids [Men’s Softball Team] did in 2006 and 2007. “The Lady Eagles have a great team, said Amy Oltrogge, W.T. Sampson Coach. “They consistently scored enough runs and had the great fielding to back up every game they played this year. We had a lot of fun playing them and we would have liked to have played them in the championship but we didn't get the chance.,” she added. HN Roxanne Guitierrez was as good with her bat this year and she was at shortstop for the Lady Eagles. Guitierrez was being selected by many softball coaches to play with them during the upcoming MWR Co-Ed Softball season.Captains Cup Basketball HM3 Danielle Lowe doesn't let a bubble of gum distract her from making a great play at third base during a game against the W.T.
