Friday, April 25, 2008 Vol. 65 No. 17 'GTMO Idol 'crowned Local songstress Iliana Pagan sang her way to the title beating out nine other contestants all vying for the right to be labeled Guantanamo Bay's top artist.Story, photos by MC2 Kim Williams NAVSTA PAO See 'IDOL', page 3Singing her soulful rendition of R&B Artist Rihanna's 'Unfaithful', GTMO Idol winner Iliana Pagan serenades the audience during round one of the contest held April 18 at the Windjammer ballroom. Pagan was later declared the winner of the entire contest. G TMO's search for itsnext sing ing superstar led to the GTMO Idol contest at the Windjammer ballroom April 18. A crowd of base residents packed the Windjammer ballroom for a high-energy demonstration of vocals provided by local artists. The contest was sponsored by the Morale, Welfare and Recreation Center's (MWR) Child and Youth Program (CYP), which previously held the talent search at the Teen Center and the Windjammer in 2007. The GTMO Idol program is the brainchild of Terill Wicks, who works for MWR. "We have a lot of talent here on the base and wanted to do a show much like the one on television [American Idol]," said Wicks, GTMO Idol judge. Eight contestants, ranging from teenagers to 30-something adults, went head to head for the title. Mistress of ceremonies Kerry-Ann Minott entertained the crowd with jokes and few dance moves for which she received rave reviews from the crowd. Each contestant auditioned the week prior to the contest to showcase their specific act for the judges. "All of those that auditioned [for the show] made it to the final show," said Wicks. "The audition was an opportunity for us to determine in what order the participants would appear in the show so that there was variety in the show." Song selections included Walt Disney cartoon ballads, pop and R&B tunes and a rendition of the 1980s hit 'Ice, Ice Baby' which one contestant rapped acapella with the help of the audience. "All of the contestants had great talent and it was enjoyable to listen to," said Yeoman 2nd Class (AW) LaDonna Williams, NEGB Admin. "In my opinion though, I think the two people who won second and third place shouldn’t have won. There were two other people who I think deserved to win." GTMO idol judges were faced with making the tough decision of who would be crowned the winner of the event and it was a job that did not come without controversy and conflict with the audience. "I liked watching everyone perform,[and I believe that] the winner sang well, but if I were a judge I would have picked a different person," said Seaman Dusty Gilvin, JTF.

GTMO Idol judge Johnny Street said there were several factors that came into play before he cast his vote for the winners. "I was very impressed because this was a great show. I selected Iliana as the overall winner because she sang well, she put on a great performance and most importantly, she was very prepared for the show," said Street. "There were some contestants who were great vocalists, but who weren't really prepared for the show. If they had been better prepared, they definitely would have placed higher in the competition because they had the talent." Contest winner Illiana Pagan says this is her second try at the competition, which she sees as a fun experience. "I have been singing for years, since I was a little girl. I love going to karaoke, but for the most part ... singing is just a big hobby of mine," said Pagan. Pagan says that she doesn't have a particular singing style but "likes a little bit of everything." "I don’t really consider myself to be a good enough singer to have a career in the industry. I enjoy singing and if an opportunity ever came knocking on my door, then I guess I would have to think about pursuing it. However, I am very realistic and I know that the industry is rough and there is a lot of competition even amongst the finest out there."

Sampson students build long distance relationships Greetings from Mary Alston and her students from Grenada Elementary School!The month of April marks the recognition of the military child by the U.S. Department of Defense. The month-long celebration, first observed in 1986, recognizes the importance of military children whose parents serve America. Children of military servicemembers relocate constantly, endure moving away from friends and also have to adjust quickly to new environments and different cultures. In some cases, children who move overseas may find it even harder to adjust to their new environment. Military children living overseas also lose out on what’s going on back in the states as far as trends and different styles in general. Teachers, parents and other servicemembers may be able to help children overcome being away from home by keeping in contact with their peers. One sailor, attached to Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) Administration Department, took an idea and ran with it. Yeoman 2nd Class Deavon Tate came up with an idea a while back through which W.T. Sampson School students could correspond with children back in the states. Tate has a relative who teaches in Grenada, Mississippi, and on occasion has visited these students and thought it would be a good idea to get them together through cards, letters and pictures. “This all started with my aunt, Mary Alston, when she asked me to visit her class in my Navy uniform about three or four years ago. Ever since then I thought that both sets of school children would benefit each other by knowing each other. I’ve taken pictures of students in GTMO and back in Mississippi and have been their media-Photo provided byYN2 Deavon TateStory by MC1 Robert Lamb, NAVSTA Public Affairs See 'SCHOOL', page 5 26, 2008 5 7 .. 1 72128 3664

I’ve tried to keep them in touch with one another for the past few months,” Tate explained. At first it was just to give the kids back home some positive reinforcement and then it just blossomed from there. Tate has been stationed in Italy and GTMO and is currently planning to be stationed in Japan, so he understands that when a person is away from home, even for just a few years, that he or she can start to miss out on some of the child age customs or fads that come and go very quickly back in the states. “Both schools have sent corresponding letters between the children and each student has their own pen pals. I really hope this continues, because the students and both principals have been very excited in this program,” Tate said.SCHOOL, from page 4 The SARP's Corner The SARP's Corner The SARP's Corner The SARP's Corner The SARP's Corner April is Alcohol Awareness Month H ow To Identify And Care For An Intoxi cated Person Alcohol abuse and acute intoxication are an unfortunate reality in our country today. The beauty of Guantanamo Bay does not insulate our service members and their families from the poor judgment associated with alcohol abuse and intoxication. This means you may come in contact with a person who is intoxicated or experiencing an episode of life-threatening, acute alcohol intoxication (alcohol poisoning) while here. How do you care for this person? How do you tell if the person is acutely intoxicated? What should you do? Listed below are some of the signs and symptoms of intoxication, alcohol poisoning, and the appropriate actions to take. This list is not all inclusive. Signs of intoxication: A person who is overly friendly. Someone talking loudly, bragging, or using foul language. You will usually find the person annoying or arguing with others. The inability to light a cigarette, or attempting to light more than one cigarette at a time. Someone with slurred or slowed speech, who tends to lose their train of thought. A person who complains about the service. Spills the drink or misses their mouth. Glassy eyes, dilated pupils, inability to focus, sleepy look, and bobbing head. Sudden or unexplained mood changes. Drinking faster than usual. Staggering, swaying, or the inability to walk. With the recent changes in the sale and availability of car insurance policies here in Naval Station Guantanamo Bay (GTMO), many motor vehicle operators are wondering where and how to get car insurance for POVs. There are only a few insurance companies that recognize GTMO and are willing to ensure vehicles here. While this does not constitute a NAVSTA endorsement of any kind, USAA and GEICO Overseas seem to be the most popular. USAA has guidelines on who can be a member. Criteria may include active-duty officers and enlisted personnel, children of USAA members, National Guard and Selected Reserve Officers and enlisted personnel and former military personnel up to the age of 35. FMI call 1-800-531-8722. GEICO Overseas can be reached at 1-800-2484998 or at Overseas@geico.com to request a quote. GEICO Overseas has indicated it will issue policies for POVs in GTMO regardless of nationality of the operator. Contact GEICO Overseas for eligibility requirements. Base insurance news


Friday, April 25, 20086Almost every weekend you can find residents of Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) running or walking for a cause or just for the exercise. This past weekend, on Saturday, April 19, the W.T. Sampson High School National Honor Society/National Junior Honor Society hosted a 5K Alzheimer’s Memory Walk that accomplished both. The event raised awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research and it called on GTMO residents of all ages to show their support in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. “I’m quite pleased at the turnout, said Adam Moore, National Honor Society/ National Junior Honor Society sponsor. "We had about 60 participants and raised nearly $400 for the Alzheimer’s Association on the day of the walk, with some donations still coming in. Additionally, I think we helped bring a greater awareness of Alzheimer’s disease and some of its associated issues to people who might not have given it much consideration previously. On top of that, it seems like everyone had fun, too." In most cases it can be hard to find someone who doesn’t know a family GTMO walks to increase Alzheimer’s awareness Some participants decided to run the 5K which started at the base gym, up JPJ Hill and back, in support of Alzheimer’s care, assistance and research.member or a friend that hasn’t heard or seen someone afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease. "Alzheimer’s is a disease that directly affects as many as 5 million Americans. The disease indirectly, though still profoundly, affects all of their loved ones and caregivers. Any of us are fairly likely to know someone affected by Alzheimer’s at some point, to say nothing of the possibility of suffering from it ourselves. So, while the money is going to a stateside organization, it’s an organization whose goals are relevant to many people here on the base," Moore added. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, this disease is a brain disorder named for German physician Alois Alzheimer, who first described it in 1906. Scientists have learned a great deal about Alzheimer’s disease in the century since Dr. Alzheimer first drew attention to it. Today we know that Alzheimer’s is a progressive and fatal brain disease. Alzheimer’s destroys brain cells, causing problems with a person’s memory and thinking. Alzheimer’s gets worse over time and it is fatal. Today it is the seventh-leading cause of death in the United States. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, a general term for the loss of memory and other intellectual abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. Vascular dementia, another common type of dementia, is caused by reduced blood flow to parts of the brain. In mixed dementia, Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia occur together. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, but treatments for symptoms, combined with the right services and support, can make life better for the millions of Americans living with Alzheimer’s. We’ve learned most of what we know about Alzheimer’s in the last 15 years. There is an accelerating worldwide effort under way to find better ways to treat the disease, delay its onset and prevent it from developing.Early Saturday morning, April 19, runners and walkers took to the streets of Guantanamo Bay as part of the W.T.

Friday, April 25, 20087Story by MC1 Robert Lamb, NAVSTA Public AffairsOn April 14, 2008 President of the United States, George W. Bush, presented the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy to the Naval Academy football team. This award is given yearly to the winner of the competition between the three major service academies. This is the fifth time in a row that the Midshipmen were presented with such an award. Now, just days later, on Friday, April 18, two of the three services went head to head to determine the number one service in Guantanamo Bay(GTMO) when it comes to playing softball. A medium size crowd was on hand at Zasier Field to witness two teams that were formed from the best Army/Navy softball players that GTMO has to offer. Seven innings, no time limit, one winner. The Navy team consisted of five players from Naval Station and five players from the Joint Task Force (JTF). “The strategy for putting the Navy team together was to get a few players from each of the Navy teams that played during the Morale, Welfare and Recreation’s Captain Cup season, which took place a few months ago,” Assistant Navy Team Captain Aviation Boatswain's Mate (Handling) 3rd Class John Krannitz said. “The core group of players came from the ‘Main Attraction’ softball team that went undefeated this year. They were all Master-At-Arms rated personnel working for JTF. They are Master at Arms 2nd Class Cory Becherer; Chief Master at Arms Shawn Creppel; Master at Arms 2nd Navy captures Army/Navy Softball Trophy Class Matt Moen; Master at Arms 2nd Class Noah Uttech and Master at Arms 2nd Class Dustin Kentzel,” he added. Soon after introductions, the Navy team took a quick 3 – 0 lead after the first inning, while Army came right back to tie it up in the second. By the top of the third inning Navy’s hard hitting lineup had worked its way through their order and were back to batters number one, two, three four. These four Navy batters were at the top of their game, hitting to all fields for extra bases, one after another. “MA2 Dustin Kentzel, who played left field for Navy, had one of those games that has to describe as ‘awesome’,” said Krannitz. “He had three homeruns and threw out a player, running home from left field on a fly. The runner didn’t have a chance when PS1 Tabron Virgin had the ball and blocked the plate,” mentioned Krannitz. Army was hitting a lot of singles up the middle, but couldn’t keep pace with the extra base running abilities from Becherer, Moen and Creppel. By the time the bottom of the seventh inning came, Navy had the lead 117 and didn’t skip a beat when it came to fielding. Army managed to get one player on first base, but that was it. Game over! This softball game was for bragging rights only. As soon as the game ended both teams shook hands and went back to their duties as soldiers and sailors working together on the same mission. Softball is a way to keep in shape, keep morale up and to have a little fun competing for a title that doesn’t mean much, except for that one night. 'Wait until next year,' was the cry in the stands from the Army fans after the game, but meanwhile, the Navy players were proposing a challenge to teams from the Air Force, Coastguard or even civilians who want to take them on. If there is such a team or teams out there and they want to challenge the Navy, they should contact Karissa Sandstrom at 77262. A combination of five players from Naval Station and five players from Joint Task Force made up the Navy team that beat Army team 11 7. Naval Station Commanding Officer Capt.

8Friday, April 25, 2008The Math and Science Department of WT Sampson High School is hosting an Astronomy Night at the school on Thursday, May 1st, from 8 p.m. to midnight. The premier activity will be student control of the 110 foot Goldstone-Apple Valley Radio Telescope (GAVRT) on a quasar study project. The students control the telescope through online control and telephone communications, while observers can see the NASA type control panels and the data that is gathered. GAVRT is a partnership involving NASA, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), and the Lewis Center for Educational Research (LCER) in Apple Valley, California, as well as the teachers and students who have joined the GAVRT team from around the World. The radio telescope is located at the Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex in the Mojave Desert, near Barstow, California. The antenna has a dish 34 meters (110 feet) in diameter, is nine stories high, and weighs 850,000 pounds. Formerly known as Deep Space Station 12 (DSS-12), the Michael Klein Radio Observatory was used by NASA’s Deep Astronomy Night at W.T. Sampson Story by Guy BellemenW.T. Sampson High School Space Network to track robotic planetary missions such as the Mariner missions, Voyagers 1 and 2, Galileo, and other spacecraft exploring the Solar System. Currently, the telescope is being used in Jupiter Quest and Quasar studies. In the Jupiter Quest missions, the telescope measures the temperature of Jupiter’s atmosphere and studies variations in the radio emissions from Jupiter’s intense radiation belts. In the Quasar studies, the radio signals from quasars are varied by inter-stellar medium and the resulting wave measurements can be used to study the quasar and the medium. Other activities will include viewing of the night sky through the school’s eight telescopes, a spectrometry and slide show, a Starry Night demonstration, SLOOH (real-time, online telescope control) demonstration, and other teacher directed activities. Astronomy Night is open to the public, so family and friends should come out and enjoy the show! Both Elementary and High school Odyssey of the Mind teams will have concession stands set up with food and refreshments while the activities are taking place. Cars will park in the front parking lot and all attendees are encouraged to bring a flashlight with a red lens to assist with their night vision. Student hosts will greet all arriving guests and provide an introduction and guided tour of the activities. From left: GTMO Idol contestants Detric Johnson, Mike Long, Lerone Brown, Caroline Bellman, Aimee Cobble, Nerilu Colon, Iliana Pagan and Merceedes Diaz pose prior to the start of the show. The winning vocalist received $100. Second-place contestants received $75, and third-place performers received $50. All proceeds from the GTMO Idol will be used for an upcoming banquet which will honor CYP employees. "Our staff appreciation award dinner will be May 3 at the Windjammer Ballroom," said Suzet Williams, MWR CDC. "Tickets are on sale at the CDC for $20 and we encourage the entire GTMO community to support the CYP program staff." The CYP staff would like to thank the GTMO community for its participation in the GTMO Idol.IDOL, from page 3
