Now hear this! Question: Are tick bites really a problem in Northeast Florida? Answer: A woman came to our Family Medicine clinic for care a few weeks ago, complaining of feel ing fatigued with sore muscles and fever. e doctor who saw her had a long list of things that may have caused these problems, but after looking at a blood test the doctor de cided she might have been bitten by a tick. After a short time on an antibiotic, the patients symptoms went away and she was truly surprised to know that tick bites especially at this time of year can cause these kinds of problems. As the weather becomes nicer in spring, many people think about enjoying outdoor activities such as walking in wooded areas, hiking, and camping. But as people begin to get out and about, so do animals, insects and spiders. One animal to be aware of this time of year is the deer tick. Ticks live in wooded areas, brushy elds and around your home. ey crawl onto grass or leaves and wait for animals or people to brush up against them. After hitching a ride, ticks survive by crawling onto host animals and humans skin and drawing blood to eat. In contrast to biting insects like mosquitoes and ies, ticks take their time to bite. ey crawl around looking for a good hiding place to begin feeding. Anywhere you nd deer, you can nd ticks. Even more unpleasantly, ticks pass infections from one host to the next, including humans. In Florida and the Southeastern U.S., ticks can transmit about a half-dozen types of illnesses as in the case described above. Most tickborne diseases are mild and the patient may re cover on their own without medications, but others can be more serious and even require hospitalization. Infections from tick bites should be aggressively managed with an tibiotic care and careful follow-up with your provider. One local tick species called the Gulf Coast Tick has recently been found to transmit a u-like illness known as rickettsia, which can be treated easily by a medical provider. If you or someone you know goes outside between now and football season and later develops u-like symptoms of fever, fatigue and muscle aches, this illness could be caused by a tick. A person with these symptoms during the summer months should consider a trip to see their provider. Sta at Naval Hospital Jacksonville are working together with the Cen ters for Disease Control and Preven tion and Naval Medical Research Center to monitor for these cases and oer lab testing for patients with possible rickettsial illness. is monitoring study will help describe the level of tick illness in our area and guide prevention and treatment eorts in the future. As with most matters, prevention is the best approach to tick-related diseases. When you hike, camp or enjoy the outdoors where ticks are found, a few precautions will help keep you safe: Dont be afraid to use bug spray with the chemical DEET in it. Wear light-colored clothing to make it easier to see ticks. Wear long pants and a longsleeved shirt. Tuck your pants into your socks or boots and tuck in your shirt. Stay on cleared trails. After outdoor activities, check everyone in your family, including outdoor pets,for ticks. Look hard to nd them because ticks can be very tiny and ask another person to help you check yourself. If you nd a tick which has latched onto the skin: Grab the tick close to your skin with a tweezers or tissue and pull it straight out. Dont crush the tick in your fingernails. Wash where the tick bit you. Wash your hands. Remember that if you get sick after a tick bite, you should go see your provider. e antibiotics for tick bites are easy to take and are curative. Most experts will tell you that if you can remove the tick from your skin within 24 hours, the risk of in fection is very low. Keep these simple measures in mind and enjoy Floridas great out doors safely this year. Ask Dr. Joe By Capt. Joe McQuade, MD, NH JacksonvilleTicks a problem this season of yearLife is not merely being alive, but being well. Marcus Valerius MartialisLast week, the crisis of obe sity in America became a hot topic in the news when new research out of the Institute of Medicine showed that by 2030, 42 percent of Americans will be obese. is statistic is unsettling as the negative impact of obesity on individuals and on society as a whole is signicant. e health of our nation has already taken a hit with the rapid rise in obesity both among adults, currently 35.7, percent, and children, 17 percent, who are suer ing from chronic illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. In addition to causing a lower quality of life, these obesity-related illnesses come with a high price tag for individuals as well as for employers, due to the rising cost of healthcare and reduced productiv ity and increased absenteeism in the workforce. We have reached a pivotal point where we can no longer ignore this growing problem. In an eort to spur immediate ac tion from individuals, cor porations and the government, the IOM has issued a number of recommendations that should take immediate eect if we are to stop this problem from worsening. e rise in obesity among American children is of highest concern. erefore, the IOM strongly rec ommends that there be at least 60 minutes a day of physical activity in schools. ey also suggest industry-wide guidelines on what food and drinks can be marketed to children and insist that healthier food choices be provided for kids in restaurants and at school. e IOM says we live in an obesity promoting environment and that the responsibility to make changes in our lifestyles no longer falls on just the individual. Society as a whole must act to reverse current trends. Having public and workplace policies that encourage physical activity, healthier food options available at public events and public leaders who promote wellness initiatives in their local communities are all ways society can step-up in the battle against obesity. Americans bad habits are catching up to them, and unless we now make considerable changes in the way we eat and how we spend our time, we will be faced with a severe health crisis in the near future. I believe school administrators, community leaders, employers, businesses and individuals alike can take action to shift the direc tion we are headed and help create a culture that prides itself on being healthy and t. rough education, healthy lifestyle initiatives, government controls and community programs, we can make our nations health a priority and create an environment that supports healthy and active lifestyles.

May 2012.An unsettling prediction on obesity Trainers Tips By Rachel Roessler-Mumma Kings Bay Fitness Coordinator Veterans and military members have long been held in high regard by World Golf Hall of Famer and Birdies for the Brave founder Phil Mickelson and his wife, Amy. Along with Jim and Cathy Justice and e Greenbrier Classic, the Mickelsons announced May 8 that they will host a two-day fund-rais ing event that will include a Pro-Am, Gala Dinner and a concert featuring A-list country music stars to raise funds for Birdies for the Brave. e event will take place at TPC Sawgrass on Friday, Nov. 30, and Saturday, Dec. 1. Amy and I are thrilled to join with the Justices and e Greenbrier Classic to host what we think will be a spectacular event at TPC Sawgrass for a very worthy cause, Mickelson said. Our military men and women and their families have made enor mous sacrices for all of us, and we feel fortunate to be able to use this event to show our gratitude. Fifty-four PGA Tour, LPGA and Champions Tour professionals in cluding Vijay Singh, Hale Irwin, Lee Trevino and Nancy Lopez are expected to play in the Pro-Am.

Becoming a party to the convention would strengthen our position in this key area, he said. e strategic arc is crucial to American interests now and into the future, Panetta said. e convention would stop countries in this arc from proposing restric tions on access for mili tary vessels in the Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf, and the South China Sea. e United States has long declared our inter ests and respect for inter national law, freedom of navigation and peaceful resolution of disputes, Panetta said. We have demonstrated our commitment to those interests through our consistent presence and engagement in these critical maritime regions. Ratifying the convention would serve to strengthen U.S. policy in the region, the secretary said. It would also increase Americas credibility to all nations of the Asia-Pacic. Right now, he said, the United States undercuts itself as it pushes for a rules-based order in the region and the peaceful resolution of maritime and territo rial disputes in the South China Sea and elsewhere. How can we argue that other nations must abide by international rules, when we havent ocially accepted those rules, the secretary said. e Strait of Hormuz is another possible ash point. It is a vital sea lane of communication and commerce and the United States and its allies are determined to preserve freedom of transit there in the face of Iranian threats to impose a blockade, Pa netta said. U.S. accession to the convention would help strengthen worldwide transit passage rights un der international law and isolate Iran as one of the few remaining non-par ties to the convention, the secretary said.

During the time-honored ceremony, Capt. William Merz turned over com mand to Capt. Vern Parks. Vice Adm. John Richardson, commander, Submarine Forces Atlantic, served as guest speaker, and praised Merz for his leadership. Its always wonderful to be in Groton, the submarine capital. Its a special treat to be here to take a moment to pause and reect on Commodore Bill Merzs superb tour in command of SUBDEVRON 12, Richardson said. DEVRON 12 is unique in the Submarine Force, with a dual na ture; there is the waterfront side, where Bill commanded the squadron of seven submarines, including deployments to the CENTCOM and EU COM theaters of operation. Richardson praised Merz for his leadership of the squadrons tactical development side, where he led a team of top-notch analysts that study and dene our intellectual warghting base. In both areas, Bill was superb. Reecting on Military Spouse Appreci ation Day, Richardson recognized Merzs wife, Martha.

joys, doing her part while Bill did his, Richardson said. Our Navy would not run without the very special teamwork between Sailor and spouse, and Bill and Martha have been a stellar example of how good that team can be. Richardson added that the true legacy of Merzs leadership will be the people you have trained and led. Our Sailors and their families are the most important part of our suc cess; they have always been our secret weapon. Richardson welcomed Parks to his new assign ment as commodore of DEVRON 12. Capt. Vern Parks, wel come to the team. You are no stranger to leader ship and command. You are perfectly suited to take this job, and we are all dedicated to your suc cess, he said. Merz, a native of San Diego, will next serve as the Chief of Sta, Commander Submarine Force Atlantic and reected on his time in command of DEVRON 12. It has been a once in a lifetime opportunity. e men and women we have the honor to serve, and to serve with, both ashore and aoat, are truly inspir ing. DEVRON 12 repre sents the heartbeat of the submarine force and both the experience and the ed ucation have been incred ibly enriching, Merz said. Merz added that at no time during his 26 years in the submarine force has he felt more connected to the submarine commu nity. What else could you ask for? I envy my relief, Capt. Vern Parks. He is just the right ocer at just the right time to take over the helm, and I wish him the best, Merz said. In addition to his role as commodore of DEV RON 12, Merz also served as chairman of the Sub marine Tactical Requirements Group, in which he guided the Submarine Force Acquisition Community, ensuring the Force remained focused and capable of delivering precision warfare technol ogy to the eet. My role as chairman was to bring together some of the best and brightest of the submarine force to not only learn from them, but to conceptualize how their multi-tasking capabilities can be applied to improve the future of the subma rine force, he said. Parks, who previously served as commanding of cer of USS Santa Fe (SSN 763) and executive ocer of USS Helena (SSN 725) is looking forward to tak ing the helm of DEVRON 12, which is to support the Navys vision of the future by developing and evaluating submarine tactics, both war ghting and for ward presence, and dis seminating those tactics to the operating forces. I am honored by the opportunity to serve as the commander of Submarine Development Squadron Twelve, supporting the ocers and crews of our submarines in all they do and continu ing the 60-plus year legacy of my predecessors in tactical development for our submarine force, he said. e team that Capt. Merz has led for the past 20 months, has excelled in all areas, and I am looking forward to the future with the outstanding men and women of DEVRON 12. Parks graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science holds a Masters of Business Administra tion from Brenau Univer sity and a Masters of Sci ence degree in National Security Strategy from the National War College. Parks Warrior Games wrap up Team Navy/Coast Guard dominated the swimming events in the last day of competition at the 2012 Warrior Games in Colo rado Springs, Colo., May 5. e teams swimmers took 16 medals, including 11 golds, to bring Team Navy/Coast Guards total medal count to 31, ex ceeding the 27 won during the 2011 games. e Vice Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Mark Ferguson awarded the medals and spoke proudly of the athletes. What a great inspi ration, Ferguson said. What I like most about being here is that the loudest cheers come not from those with the most medals, but more often for those with the biggest struggles. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal Lt. Brad Snyder swam for three individual gold medals in the mens open 50-meter freestyle, 100-meter freestyle and 50-meter back stroke events. His backstroke time of 34.19 seconds is the fth fastest in the world in the visually-impaired paralympic category. From St. Petersburg, Fla., Snyder was blinded by an improvised explosive device while deployed to Afghanistan during 2011. I began swimming as soon as I left the hospital, said Snyder, who was on the U.S. Naval Academy swim team, about how swimming has helped him in his recovery. Im not physically disabled, but navigationally disabled. When I swim, I can relax and not have to worry about whether I am going to walk into a wall or into a piece of furniture. Retired Navy Lt. John Edmonston won a bronze medal in the mens 50-me ter freestyle open event. After suering trau matic brain injury during a motorcycle accident in 2009, Edmonston has not let setbacks deter him. A native of Bremerton, Wash., Edmonston com peted for the title of Ultimate Champion, coming in third place in the pentathlon-style competition which included events in cycling, swimming, shoot ing, track and eld. 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 17, 2012

Now hear this! Question: Are tick bites really a problem in Northeast Florida? Answer: A woman came to our Family Medicine clinic for care a few weeks ago, complaining of feeling fatigued with sore muscles and fever. e doctor who saw her had a long list of things that may have caused these problems, but after looking at a blood test the doctor decided she might have been bitten by a tick. After a short time on an antibiotic, the patients symptoms went away and she was truly surprised to know that tick bites especially at this time of year can cause these kinds of problems. As the weather becomes nicer in spring, many people think about enjoying outdoor activities such as walking in wooded areas, hiking, and camping. But as people begin to get out and about, so do animals, insects and spiders. One animal to be aware of this time of year is the deer tick. Ticks live in wooded areas, brushy elds and around your home. ey crawl onto grass or leaves and wait for animals or people to brush up against them. After hitching a ride, ticks survive by crawling onto host animals and humans skin and drawing blood to eat. In contrast to biting insects like mosquitoes and ies, ticks take their time to bite. ey crawl around looking for a good hiding place to begin feeding. Anywhere you nd deer, you can nd ticks. Even more unpleasantly, ticks pass infections from one host to the next, including humans. In Florida and the Southeastern U.S., ticks can transmit about a half-dozen types of illnesses as in the case described above. Most tickborne diseases are mild and the patient may re cover on their own without medications, but others can be more serious and even require hospitalization. Infections from tick bites should be aggressively managed with antibiotic care and careful follow-up with your provider. One local tick species called the Gulf Coast Tick has recently been found to transmit a u-like illness known as rickettsia, which can be treated easily by a medical provider. If you or someone you know goes outside between now and football season and later develops u-like symptoms of fever, fatigue and muscle aches, this illness could be caused by a tick. A person with these symptoms during the summer months should consider a trip to see their provider. Sta at Naval Hospital Jacksonville are working together with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Naval Medical Research Center to monitor for these cases and oer lab testing for patients with possible rickettsial illness. is monitoring study will help describe the level of tick illness in our area and guide prevention and treatment eorts in the future. As with most matters, prevention is the best approach to tick-related diseases. When you hike, camp or enjoy the outdoors where ticks are found, a few precautions will help keep you safe: Dont be afraid to use bug spray with the chemical DEET in it. Wear light-colored clothing to make it easier to see ticks. Wear long pants and a longsleeved shirt. Tuck your pants into your socks or boots and tuck in your shirt. Stay on cleared trails. After outdoor activities, check everyone in your family, including outdoor pets,for ticks. Look hard to nd them because ticks can be very tiny and ask another person to help you check yourself. If you nd a tick which has latched onto the skin: Grab the tick close to your skin with a tweezers or tissue and pull it straight out. Dont crush the tick in your fingernails. Wash where the tick bit you. Wash your hands. Remember that if you get sick after a tick bite, you should go see your provider. e antibiotics for tick bites are easy to take and are curative. Most experts will tell you that if you can remove the tick from your skin within 24 hours, the risk of infection is very low. Keep these simple measures in mind and enjoy Floridas great outdoors safely this year. Ask Dr. Joe By Capt. Joe McQuade, MD, NH JacksonvilleTicks a problem this season of yearLife is not merely being alive, but being well. Marcus Valerius MartialisLast week, the crisis of obesity in America became a hot topic in the news when new research out of the Institute of Medicine showed that by 2030, 42 percent of Americans will be obese. is statistic is unsettling as the negative impact of obesity on individuals and on society as a whole is signicant. e health of our nation has already taken a hit with the rapid rise in obesity both among adults, currently 35.7, percent, and children, 17 percent, who are suering from chronic illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. In addition to causing a lower quality of life, these obesity-related illnesses come with a high price tag for individuals as well as for employers, due to the rising cost of healthcare and reduced productivity and increased absenteeism in the workforce. We have reached a pivotal point where we can no longer ignore this growing problem. In an eort to spur immediate action from individuals, corporations and the government, the IOM has issued a number of recommendations that should take immediate eect if we are to stop this problem from worsening. e rise in obesity among American children is of highest concern. erefore, the IOM strongly recommends that there be at least 60 minutes a day of physical activity in schools. ey also suggest industry-wide guidelines on what food and drinks can be marketed to children and insist that healthier food choices be provided for kids in restaurants and at school. e IOM says we live in an obesity promoting environment and that the responsibility to make changes in our lifestyles no longer falls on just the individual. Society as a whole must act to reverse current trends. Having public and workplace policies that encourage physical activity, healthier food options available at public events and public leaders who promote wellness initiatives in their local communities are all ways society can step-up in the battle against obesity. Americans bad habits are catching up to them, and unless we now make considerable changes in the way we eat and how we spend our time, we will be faced with a severe health crisis in the near future. I believe school administrators, community leaders, employers, businesses and individuals alike can take action to shift the direction we are headed and help create a culture that prides itself on being healthy and t. rough education, healthy lifestyle initiatives, government controls and community programs, we can make our nations health a priority and create an environment that supports healthy and active lifestyles.

Becoming a party to the convention would strengthen our position in this key area, he said. e strategic arc is crucial to American interests now and into the future, Panetta said. e convention would stop countries in this arc from proposing restrictions on access for military vessels in the Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf, and the South China Sea. e United States has long declared our interests and respect for international law, freedom of navigation and peaceful resolution of disputes, Panetta said. We have demonstrated our commitment to those interests through our consistent presence and engagement in these critical maritime regions. Ratifying the convention would serve to strengthen U.S. policy in the region, the secretary said. It would also increase Americas credibility to all nations of the Asia-Pacic. Right now, he said, the United States undercuts itself as it pushes for a rules-based order in the region and the peaceful resolution of maritime and territorial disputes in the South China Sea and elsewhere. How can we argue that other nations must abide by international rules, when we havent ocially accepted those rules, the secretary said. e Strait of Hormuz is another possible ash point. It is a vital sea lane of communication and commerce and the United States and its allies are determined to preserve freedom of transit there in the face of Iranian threats to impose a blockade, Panetta said. U.S. accession to the convention would help strengthen worldwide transit passage rights under international law and isolate Iran as one of the few remaining non-parties to the convention, the secretary said.

Up eriscope with Bill Wesselho ONeills honored by NMCRS Parks assumes command Submarine Development Squadron 12 held a change of command ceremony May 11 aboard Los Angeles-class submarine USS San Juan (SSN 751) at Naval Submarine Base New London, Conn. During the time-honored ceremony, Capt. William Merz turned over command to Capt. Vern Parks. Vice Adm. John Richardson, commander, Submarine Forces Atlantic, served as guest speaker, and praised Merz for his leadership. Its always wonderful to be in Groton, the submarine capital. Its a special treat to be here to take a moment to pause and reect on Commodore Bill Merzs superb tour in command of SUBDEVRON 12, Richardson said. DEVRON 12 is unique in the Submarine Force, with a dual na ture; there is the waterfront side, where Bill commanded the squadron of seven submarines, including deployments to the CENTCOM and EUCOM theaters of operation. Richardson praised Merz for his leadership of the squadrons tactical development side, where he led a team of top-notch analysts that study and dene our intellectual warghting base. In both areas, Bill was superb. Reecting on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Richardson recognized Merzs wife, Martha.

joys, doing her part while Bill did his, Richardson said. Our Navy would not run without the very special teamwork between Sailor and spouse, and Bill and Martha have been a stellar example of how good that team can be. Richardson added that the true legacy of Merzs leadership will be the people you have trained and led. Our Sailors and their families are the most important part of our success; they have always been our secret weapon. Richardson welcomed Parks to his new assignment as commodore of DEVRON 12. Capt. Vern Parks, welcome to the team. You are no stranger to leadership and command. You are perfectly suited to take this job, and we are all dedicated to your success, he said. Merz, a native of San Diego, will next serve as the Chief of Sta, Commander Submarine Force Atlantic and reected on his time in command of DEVRON 12. It has been a once in a lifetime opportunity. e men and women we have the honor to serve, and to serve with, both ashore and aoat, are truly inspiring. DEVRON 12 represents the heartbeat of the submarine force and both the experience and the education have been incredibly enriching, Merz said. Merz added that at no time during his 26 years in the submarine force has he felt more connected to the submarine community. What else could you ask for? I envy my relief, Capt. Vern Parks. He is just the right ocer at just the right time to take over the helm, and I wish him the best, Merz said. In addition to his role as commodore of DEVRON 12, Merz also served as chairman of the Submarine Tactical Requirements Group, in which he guided the Submarine Force Acquisition Community, ensuring the Force remained focused and capable of delivering precision warfare technology to the eet. My role as chairman was to bring together some of the best and brightest of the submarine force to not only learn from them, but to conceptualize how their multi-tasking capabilities can be applied to improve the future of the submarine force, he said. Parks, who previously served as commanding ofcer of USS Santa Fe (SSN 763) and executive ocer of USS Helena (SSN 725) is looking forward to taking the helm of DEVRON 12, which is to support the Navys vision of the future by developing and evaluating submarine tactics, both war ghting and forward presence, and disseminating those tactics to the operating forces. I am honored by the opportunity to serve as the commander of Submarine Development Squadron Twelve, supporting the ocers and crews of our submarines in all they do and continuing the 60-plus year legacy of my predecessors in tactical development for our submarine force, he said. e team that Capt. Merz has led for the past 20 months, has excelled in all areas, and I am looking forward to the future with the outstanding men and women of DEVRON 12. Parks graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science holds a Masters of Business Administration from Brenau University and a Masters of Science degree in National Security Strategy from the National War College. Parks Warrior Games wrap up Team Navy/Coast Guard dominated the swimming events in the last day of competition at the 2012 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colo., May 5. e teams swimmers took 16 medals, including 11 golds, to bring Team Navy/Coast Guards total medal count to 31, exceeding the 27 won during the 2011 games. e Vice Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Mark Ferguson awarded the medals and spoke proudly of the athletes. What a great inspiration, Ferguson said. What I like most about being here is that the loudest cheers come not from those with the most medals, but more often for those with the biggest struggles. Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal Lt. Brad Snyder swam for three individual gold medals in the mens open 50-meter freestyle, 100-meter freestyle and 50-meter backstroke events. His backstroke time of 34.19 seconds is the fth fastest in the world in the visually-impaired paralympic category. From St. Petersburg, Fla., Snyder was blinded by an improvised explosive device while deployed to Afghanistan during 2011. I began swimming as soon as I left the hospital, said Snyder, who was on the U.S. Naval Academy swim team, about how swimming has helped him in his recovery. Im not physically disabled, but navigationally disabled. When I swim, I can relax and not have to worry about whether I am going to walk into a wall or into a piece of furniture. Retired Navy Lt. John Edmonston won a bronze medal in the mens 50-meter freestyle open event. After suering traumatic brain injury during a motorcycle accident in 2009, Edmonston has not let setbacks deter him. A native of Bremerton, Wash., Edmonston competed for the title of Ultimate Champion, coming in third place in the pentathlon-style competition which included events in cycling, swimming, shooting, track and eld. 10 THE PERISCOPE, NSB KINGS BAY, Thursday, May 17, 2012
