August 27, 2010 Vol. 67 No. 33 Windjammer, OKellys to re-openBy MC3 Leona MynesThe Windjammer and OKellys Irish Pub will re-open with bar service and no food service today. The building was closed this summer to replace the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. As anyone who has spent time in the Windjammer can tell you, the air conditioning was very cold in some places, too warm in others and too humid throughout, said Tara Culbertson, Guantanamo Bays MWR installation director. This upgrade addresses all of those issues. Windjammer and OKellys food services will resume Sept. 13. Additionally, the Bayviews lunch service will end Sept. 3. For more information on MWR food services, call MWR at 4360. Back to School information on pages 4 and 5By Terence R. PeckA Royal Navy ship patrolling the North Atlantic and the Carib bean made a port call to Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Aug. 22. The 80 civilian-manned British Royal Fleet Auxiliary (RFA) ship Wave Ruler arrived at the Naval Station to resupply with food and fuel before departing on Aug. 26. The RFA Wave Ruler is one of 16 resupply and logistics ships belong ing to the civilian-manned RFA Service with just over 2000 personnel, operating worldwide in support of the British Armed Services, primarily serves the Royal Navy. The Wave Ruler conducts maritime patrols working with various agencies such as the U.S. Coast Guard, local defense and police forces the Caribbean region. The presence of the Wave Ruler in the Caribbean is a brilliant ex ample of the U.S., U.K. cooperation in the counter narcotics role, said 11 members of the U.S. Coast Guard on board. When we are at sea, they will carry out counter narcotics operations. Budd said that having the Coast Guard service members onboard makes it effective for counter narcotics operations because they are able to make arrests under U.S. law. The Naval Stations strategic location in the Caribbean enables it to provide supply and logistics support to U.S. Naval and allied ships, such as the RFA Wave Ruler. We give fuel to U.S. ships, U.K. ships and NATO ships while in the Caribbean, said Budd. In order to do that, we have to top off fuel somewhere and Guantanamo Bay is the ideal place for us to come in and take the high quality F-76 (ship propulsion fuel) that is required for the ships that we replenish. The Naval Station provided the Wave Ruler with 1.7 million gallons of F-76 fuel. According to Budd, Naval Station GTMO is the only source in the Caribbean able to supply the large quantity of F-76 they need.

Sampson Schools, it will be un der the leadership of a new principal. Sonja Rodriguez, an educator for 22 years, transferred to Guantanamo from Yokosuka Middle School in Yokosuka, Japan. Rodriguez began her career as an elementary school teacher with the Killen Independent School District in Texas. Then, in 1998, she began working for Department of Defense Education Activity as a middle school teacher in Schweinfurt, Germany. There are approxi mately 235 students enrolled at W.T. Sampson this school year, attending the Sure Start program, elementary, middle, and high school. The small number of students and the staffs reputation as professional educators are reasons that Rodriguez said she request ed W.T. Sampson Schools. Educators in a small, unit-school set ting are fortunate to experience the entire curriculum, from Sure Start through high school graduation, she said. While our student population is transient, we see the entire scope of a childs education. According to Rodriguez, many school administrators do not have the opportunities that she will while leading W.T. Sampson faculty and students. day of a childs schooling is a huge mile stone, she said. High school graduation ranks right up there as well. As principal of W.T. Sampson School, I am blessed to experi ence those milestones along with our parents. Being on campus for the and Kindergarten classes and signing diplomas for our graduating seniors on their last day of school af fords me the opportunity to come full circle in one school year. During her time at GTMO, Rodriguez said she will continue to focus on highest student achievement so that the students receive a topnotch, quality education. There are many rewarding opportunities available to students in a small school set ting, she said. My goal will be to work with the faculty in identifying students strengths and maximizing every opportunity for each child to experience success. I would like for students, parents and community members to take on a more active role in our continuing school improvement goals. My goal will be to work with the faculty in identifying students strengths and maximizing every opportunity for each child to experience success. Sonja Rodriguez

Budd said his ship can reach Guantanamo Bay within a day and a half from anywhere in the Caribbean. that we can come in, as we did this time, with a days notice, he said. We called up late on a Friday after noon, the guys here got the emails sent on a Saturday morning and we came in on a Sunday morning. While in port, the ship also received engineering support from the Naval Station to help unlock a se cured safe that could not be opened. Security is vitally important and if you have a safe with secured items and you cant get at it, its not much good for you, said Bud. That sort of en gineering support is great. For Ralph Densmore, Naval Station GTMOs portunity to work on British safe combination lock systems that are different than U.S. made safe com bination locks. I have never worked on a British lock until this week, so it was a wonderful experience, said Dens more. It comes with the job I have here at the Naval Station; I love to assist people with problematic issues. Pelican, who also assisted in repairing the safes, said a training instructor at Ft. Meade told him that the UK made some of the best mechanical locks in the world. Having an opportunity to work on such an intri cate lock is the equivalent of an once-in-a-lifetime experience for a locksmith on GTMO, he said. The British personnel were overjoyed and thankful for the outcome. While the ship was receiving supplies and engi neer support, many of its crewmembers found time to relax and participate in recreational activities around the base. Its easy to get everywhere, because there is transport everywhere, said Able Seaman Roxy Challinor, who works in Communications Information Systems. The bowling is quite good and its cheap. We have a great bunch of chiefs from a variety of commands on board GTMO coming together as one Chiefs mess, Downs said. For those who participated in the event, it was an opportunity to come together. A time of season that promotes unity throughout the year, teamwork is what its all about, said Senior Chief Hull Technician Anne Roussel from Convent, La. Several more future events are scheduled for Chief selectees. For more information on (Select) Maurice Stigger at 79309. CHIEFS, from page 3

Why werent these guidelines incorporatWe recognize that this was a shortfall and have taken corrective action. How do I know the program wont be have We believe the new constraints will keep costs in check. We have also reviewed the entire MyCAA program and have instituted additional controls and forecasting tools to better anticipate future demand. We will now monitor program utilization more frequently (daily) with our additional met rics. These include number of spouses creating or degree). Before the pause, we monitored the program on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. We have reprogrammed funds to meet the needs $215 million. What is the budget for the out years and The estimated cost for FY-2011 is $250 million; we anticipate lower costs in the out years. This is still a very new program and consequently, we lack be monitoring the program closely in FY-2011. Not in FY 2011. However, in coming years, with a reduced defense budget a reality, every program will be closely scrutinized for its contribution to military family readiness.

As a result of the course failures and withdrawals, the Defense Department will not realize funds that were spent on these failures.
