Three Pensacola health care facilities

partner to implement smoke-free initiative

From Rod Duren

Naval Hospital Pensacola (NHP), Baptist
Health Care and Sacred Heart Health System
announced Oct. 29 a partnership to promote a
healthier environment for area residents by
going tobacco free on all campuses.
As community health care providers, NHP,
Baptist Health Care and Sacred Heart Health
System want to ensure patients, families,
employees and community members are not
exposed to the harmful effects of smoking while
on the facilities' campuses.
"Navy medicine delivers world-class health-
care anywhere, anytime," said NHP
Commanding Officer, Capt. Maryalice Morro.
"It is in the business of saving lives ... on the
battlefield and at home. Tobacco usage is in

direct conflict with our mission; and we have a
responsibility to our patients to not only provide
an environment that is conducive to healthy liv-
ing but to set the standard for healthy living
There are fewer things more fulfilling than to
strive to return a better quality of life whether
hours or years to service members, and their
families, to which we owe our national grati-
Together, the local hospitals join 1,800 hospitals
nationwide who have adopted smoke-free policies.
Locally, four health care facilities Baptist's Jay
Hospital, Baptist Manor, Baptist Behavioral
Medicine Hospital, and Santa Rosa Medical
Center have already established smoke-free
campuses. A smoke-free policy reinforces the
commitment to improving the health of

Obama declares H1N1 influenza national emergency

By Army Sgt. 1st Class Michael J.

President Barack Obama signed a
national emergency declaration on
H1N1 influenza over the weekend to
accommodate American health care

"By rapidly identifying the virus,
implementing public heath measures,
providing guidance for health profes-
sionals and the general public, and
developing an effective vaccine, we
have take proactive steps to reduce the
impact ofthe pandemic and protect the
health of our citizens," the president
said in his proclamation Oct. 24.
Health and Human Services
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has twice
declared a public health emergency due
to the H1N1 strain. The first came July
24, and the most recent was Oct. 1.
"As a nation, we have prepared at all
levels ofgovernment, and as individuals
and communities, taking unprecedented
steps to counter the emerging pandem-
ic," Obama said. "Nevertheless, the

evolve. In recognition of the continuing

The declaration grants authority to
the Department of Health and Human
Services to waive legal requirements
and gives medical facilities the ability to

spokeswoman Rene White said.
Temporary waivers are petitioned
to HHS by the individual medical

facilities under Section 1135 of the
Social Security Act. Although the
president declared the pandemic a
national emergency, waivers still
require specific requests to HHS, and
some state laws may need to be
addressed, according to a White
House statement released yesterday.
The most recent examples of a U.S.

waivers was in the aftermath of

"We are pleased to join with
Baptist Health Care, Naval Hospital
Pensacola and many other health-
care facilities in our region in mov-
ing toward tobacco-free campuses,"
said Laura Kaiser, chief operating
officer and interim CEO, Sacred
Heart Health System. "Our efforts
not only will provide a safer environ-
ment for all who visit and work at
our healthcare facilities, but also
demonstrate our commitment to pre-
serving and promoting the health of
our community. We are setting a
standard we hope many area busi-
nesses and organizations will
embrace as well."
Baptist Health Care will implement
its smoke-free policy onNov. 19, coin-
ciding with the Great American
Smoke Out. NHP and Sacred Heart
Health System will implement their
smoke-free policies in late 2010.
"Baptist Health Care strives to serve
as a source of health, healing and edu-
cation in our community," said Al
Stubblefield, president and CEO,
Baptist Health Care. "The implemen-

nity is exercising portions of
its pandemic influenza
response plan by holding
this clinic.
"This is a great opportu-
nity for those of you who
haven't gotten your flu vac-
cine, and to do it in the com-
fort of your vehicle," said
Cmdr. Kim Toone, who will

Homefront in Focus: Birthdays, breasts

and domestic violence


By Beth Wilson
Military Spouse Contributor

Birthdays, breasts and domestic violence.
Did I get your attention? October is Halloween,
fall Colors, the Navy Birthday Ball and Breast
Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness month.
My friend, fellow Navy wife, and beautiful
breast cancer survivor, Cheryl, is also a faithful
"pain in my breast."
Cheryl faithfully leaves this mes-
sage on my phone: "This is your
conscience speaking... schedule
your mammogram."
Breast cancer survival is directly
related to early detection, and
though I loathe this yearly mam-
mogram the reality is our lives
depend on it.
Through TriCare you can self-
refer to schedule your annual mam-
If you are 40 or older you should
have an annual mammogram. If
you are under 40, talk to your doc-
tor to see if early mammography is Bet
Please don't put this off. "This is your con-
science speaking, schedule your mammogram!"
I cannot resist one little commentary on breast
cancer awareness. Although the pink breast cancer
awareness campaign is brilliant, the day my
Pittsburgh Steelers took the field wearing pink
shoes and gloves ... well that was just plain wrong.
The next October observance is equally impor-
tant domestic violence.
I feel very inadequate discussing this important
topic. This is the bottom line if you are in an
abusive relationship or know someone who is in
such a relationship, there is help. No one deserves
to be abused, either physically, mentally or emo-
tionally. No one. Please do not suffer in silence or
The DoD and Navy have many resources for you


and your service member. Please contact your local
Family Advocacy Program office (FAP, the coun-
seling services center) for support. At NASP that
office can be reached through the Fleet and
FamilySupport Center at 452-5990.
You may think that FAP will inform your service
member's command if you seek help for the abuse
in your relationship.
Please know that you may request a confidential
report. This confidential report will not be reported
to the command, yet you will
still receive counseling and
I want to speak candidly
about three common myths.
Many spouses are afraid to
get help or take action because
their service members con-
vinced them of several lies. It is
time to expose those lies.
(1) Your Sailor's career will
not be cooked if you seek help
and report the violence. Their
failure to take appropriate steps
to change the behavior can
Wilson impact their career. Only they
can mess up their career.
(2) He will not automatically be kicked out of the
Navy resulting in no salary, benefits for you and
your family. Again, the DoD and Navy will work
with your service member and you to change the
behavior. If your service member fails these long-
term efforts, it may result in involuntary separation,
but it is not automatic.Further, the DoD and Navy
have programs to help you in that situation should
it occur.
(3) He will take away your kids, and you'll never
see them again. This is an empty threat to control
As the parent you have rights. Please do not let
your fear of this threat stop you from getting all the
support that is available to you and your children.
For information and support, please logon to
www.domesticviolence.org or the Domestic

Violence hotline at www.ndvh.org or (800) 799-
Please seek help from your ombudsman, chap-
lain, Family Advocacy Program or friend.
Transitioning from these two intense topics is not
easy but this month we observe the 234th birthday
of the United States Navy. I hope you'll enjoy the
many balls taking place as we say "Happy
Birthday" to our Navy.

Navy Legal:

Will return next week

Fifth in a series of fire prevention articles during October National Fire Prevention Month

RVs and fire safety: know the risks

From Craig Lewis
Fire & Emergency Services Gulf Coast

L ife is good; you are hitting the highways in the

recreational vehicle (RV) and ready for the good
times to start but are you really safe: fire safe?

Let's look at some items you need to
check before you start out on that next
road trip.
There are an estimated 20,000 report-
ed RV fires each year and a large per-
centage of these fires are related to the
vehicle transmission on the motor
homes; the usual cause being automatic
transmission fluid leaking from the trans-
mission. Before traveling in your RV,
inspect the underside for any signs of
fluid leakage, have any potential leaks
checked and repaired immediately. More
than 25 percent of RV fires are caused by
shorts in the 12-volt electrical system.
Here are some items on your RV to
inspect to be fire safe:

Electrical systems.
Inspect your fire extinguisher and
test the smoke alarms.
Clean your cooking vent hood to
avoid grease fires.
Have an evacuation plan: even as
simple as getting out of the camper may
seem, evacuating a smoke-filled RV will
present you with some challenges.
Ensure everyone knows how to operate
the latches on doors and windows, par-
ticularly those intended for emergency
egress use.
Inspect your cooking appliances -
have an authorized technician inspect it
Do not use cooking appliances for

The way ahead

for Navy energy
From U.S. Navy RhumbLines

The U.S. Navy relies heavily on a finite and unre-
liable stock of fossil fuels that will likely rise in cost in
the future. Oil is a limited resource, highly concentrat-
ed in and purchased from volatile areas of the world.
The U.S. consumes 25 percent of the world's oil but
controls the production of three percent. This creates
a vulnerability to U.S. energy security and thus
national security. For this reason, the Secretary of the
Navy, Ray Mabus, has declared improving naval
energy security to be a strategic imperative. At the
Naval Energy Forum Oct. 14, Secretary Mabus
announced five energy goals.
Department of the Navy energy targets
The lifecycle energy cost of platforms, weapons
systems, and buildings, the fully-burdened cost of fuel
in powering these, and contractor energy footprint
will be mandatory evaluation factors used when
awarding contracts.
The Navy will demonstrate a Green strike group
of nuclear vessels and ships using biofuel in local
operations by 2012. By 2016, the Navy will sail a
"Great Green Fleet" composed of nuclear ships, sur-
face combatants with hybrid electric power systems
using biofuel, and aircraft flying only on biofuels.
By 2015, the Department of the Navy (DoN) will
reduce petroleum use in the commercial fleet of
50,000 vehicles by 50 percent by phasing in a com-
posite fleet of flex fuel, hybrid electric, and neighbor-
hood electric vehicles.
By 2020, at least half of the DoN's shore-based
energy requirements will come from alternative
By 2020, half of total DoN energy consumption
will come from alternative sources.

Creating the original I
By Charles E. Brodine Jr.
Historian, Naval Historical Center

In October each year the U.S. Navy celebrates its birthday. It
has done so for 234 years, but did you know that the genesis of
the U.S. Navy stems from a very short, frantic, almost panicked
11 days in 1775?
For those Americans who lived on the continent's coastal
waterways in the fall of 1775, the question of naval defense was
of no small moment. For a maritime people whose prosperity
and fortunes were tied to the sea, the prospect of full-scale con-
flict with the greatest sea power in the world must have been a
chilling one indeed.
Because Congress had already provided for an Army to con-
tend against the red coats, those who feared the British trident
might reasonably have asked why could not Congress create a
Over an 11-day period in early October 1775, Congress
deliberated on just this question, considering several schemes to
fund the purchase or building of ships to defend the Colonies.
A number of congressmen argued vehemently against these

Ghost tales: haunted history aboard NASP

By Mike O'Connor
Gosport Associate Editor

A murmur of voices teases your ear, you feel a sudden drop in temperature. In

the icy cold you may smell an aroma of pipe or cigar smoke or catch a
fleeting glimpse of movement out of the comer of your eye. Then a feeling
of dread sweeps over you as you realize you're in the presence of the supernatural ...
onboard Naval Air Station Pensacola.

Over the years, several build-
ings at NASP have attained the
reputation of being haunted.
Whether or not you believe in
ghosts or scientific explanation, a
number of witnesses have reported
eerie phenomena that seem to defy
the senses. What better time than
Halloween to explore some of
NASP's ghost tales?
Admiral's Row
In 1874, Commodore
Melanchton B. Woolsey was the
first resident of newly built
"Quarters A," on Admiral's Row's
Johnson Street.
An epidemic of yellow fever
had been sweeping the area, and
Woolsey didn't want to be a vic-
tim. Believing that disease-carry-
ing mosquitoes couldn't reach the
third floor cupola, he moved into it
to wait out the epidemic. He
received his daily supplies of food
- and medicinal rum by rope
basket. When the "tonic" was for-
gotten one day, Woolsey came
down, contracted the fever, and
died shortly after. His presence, as

well as those of a ghostly lady clad
in white, are still said to be seen
and felt on occasion in Quarters A.
Building 191
Built in the 1850s, Bldg. 191
was a grocery store once, and has
served many roles over the years.
It is the only remaining building of
the early town of Warrington.
Owned and operated by the Bauer
family, it became Navy property in
Once home to NASP Public
Affairs and Gosport offices, Bldg.
191 may still be home to some pre-
vious inhabitants. Former Gosport
reporter Larry Kachelhofer
recalled receiving an unpleasant
surprise when working late in the
building one night. "I've heard
people walking down the stairs
when there was nobody else in the
building," he said.
On another occasion, he said,
voices could be heard speaking
indistinctly. A search of the build-
ing with another staffer revealed
no other people. The final straw
came when Kachelhofer saw what

he believes was an actual appari-
tion: an outline of a figure in a
swirl of skirts, which then turned
and vanished. "There is no doubt
in my mind that building's haunt-
ed," he said.
Building 16
In the 1920s, Marine Capt. Guy
Hall, a flight instructor, frequently
whiled away off hours playing
poker with other officers. His well-
known habit of shuffling poker
chips with his fingers may have
been his way of shifting attention
from a winning hand.
Hall's luck ran out when he was
killed in a training mission, but
some believe he never really left
Bldg. 16. Over the years, on more
than one occasion, the tinkling
sound of poker chips has been heard
- as if they are being shuffled.

Pensacola Lighthouse's recent hauntings, paranormal investigations

By Wanda Mayo
Special to Gosport
If you've never seen the view
from the top of the magnificent
Pensacola Lighthouse, by all
means, put it on your "bucket
list." Just the impressive 2-ton
Fresnel (fruh-NELL) lens by
itself is well worth climbing those
177 spiral cast-iron stairs. And
along the way, it's quite possible
you might encounter one of its
resident spirits.
First lit 150 years ago Jan. 1,
1859, the lighthouse has seen
many keepers and their families
come and go. Some spent their
last moments on earth here. One
such person was Ellen Cordelia
As a young girl of 3, Ellen
(affectionately called Ella) came
to live at the lighthouse when her
father became the assistant light
keeper. Ella spent her childhood
playing in the woods, fishing and
crabbing in the local waters, and
helping her father tend the light.
She eventually fell in love with a
young man stationed at the Navy
Yard and married him. Their
daughter, Naomi, was born a few

years later at the lighthouse, but
Ella never recovered from her
birth. A few months later, Ella
died from blood loss in the
upstairs bedroom of the keepers'
quarters. She was 23 years old.

Ellen Cordeila Clifford
Over the years, many people
have heard her voice or felt her
touch. Two people even reported
seeing her translucent figure
walking on the upper catwalk at
dusk one evening. Perhaps her
spirit lingered to watch over her

Another of the resident spirits,
possibly that of Samuel Lawrence
(light keeper in the 1880s), seems
to have an affinity for brooms.
Volunteers have to constantly
search for missing brooms.
Recently, "Roger," a long-time
volunteer at the lighthouse, was
working alone cleaning the floors.
He leaned a broom against the
wall by the bathrooms where he
was working. A short time later,
he needed the broom again -
only no broom. He searched
the entire area and finally, in exas-
peration, exclaimed, "OK,
Samuel, what did you do with my
broom?" Immediately, he heard
the broom hit the floor with a
resounding whack in a totally
different area of the house an
area he had not been in that day ...
"Susan," another volunteer,
has also had a few hair-raising
episodes at the lighthouse recent-
ly. Early this summer, she joined
one of the last tours of the
evening with the Ghost Seekers
of Texas (a paranomal investiga-
tive group). Shortly after walking
into the east front parlor, one of
her ringlets of hair wrapped itself
around her neck. There was no

one near her and no breeze in the
room. The group started calling
out various names as to who was
playing with her hair and when
they said "Samuel" an electro-
magnetic field (EMF) recorder

Samuel Lawrence
pinged. Susan then asked Samuel
if he liked her hair and the
machine pinged again. Her next
question took everyone by sur-
prise when she asked Samuel if
he wanted her to leave her hair
there (she was wearing a hair-
piece.) The machine pinged again

and she immediately felt a very
cold sensation on her right hand.
Thinking that Samuel was
holding her hand, she asked him
if he wanted to go home with her.
Later that night as she got in her
car, she smelled pipe tobacco
smoke (Samuel had been a pipe
smoker). When she got to the
NASP main gate, she politely told
Samuel he should go back to the
lighthouse. The smell of tobacco
smoke immediately left the car ...
The Pensacola Lighthouse is
a favorite of the Ghost Seekers
of Texas. They have investigat-
ed the lighthouse on five differ-
ent occasions the latest visit
being Oct. 8-10 of this year.
Check out the "evidence" page
of their Web site (ghostseeker-
softexas.com) for some of the
experiences that have been
recorded at the lighthouse.
Recently, a crew from the
Syfy Channel's "Ghost Hunters"
arrived in a caravan of black
high-security-looking SUVs.
The team spent most of a week
filming until the wee hours of
the morning. The "Pensacola
Lighthouse" episode is tenta-
tively scheduled to air Nov. 18.

The fantasy and folklore of Al HalOWS E
AJ Ir ii lE tU1vi iiit

By Jack Santino
Library of Congress Research Center

H alloween had its beginnings in an ancient, pie-Cisan Celtic festival of the dead. The Celtic
peoples, who were once found all over Europe, divided the year by four major holidays.
I I According to their calendar, the year began on a day conesponding to Nov. 1 on our pesent
calendar. The date marked the beghning of winter. Since they were pastoral people, it was a time when
cattle and sheep hadtobe movedto closerpastures and all livestockhadtobe secured forthewintermonths.

Crops were harvested and stored
The festival observed at this time was
called Samhain (pronounced Sah-ween).
It was the biggest and most significant
holiday of the Celtic year. The Celts
believed that at the time of Samhain, more
so than any other time of the year, the
ghosts of the dead were able to mingle
with the living, because at Samhain the
souls of those who had died during the
year traveled into the otherworld. People
gathered to sacrifice animals, fruits and
vegetables. They also lit bonfires in honor
of the dead, to aid them on their journey,
and to keep them away from the living.
On that day all manner of beings were
abroad: ghosts, fairies and demons all
part of the dark and dread.
Samhain became the Halloween we are
familiar with when Christian missionaries
attempted to change the religious prac-
tices of the Celtic people. In the early cen-
turies of the first millennium A.D., before
missionaries such as St. Patrick and St.
Columcille converted them to
Christianity, the Celts practiced an elabo-
rate religion through their priestly caste,
the Druids, who were priests, poets, scien-
tists and scholars all at once. As religious
leaders, ritual specialists, and bearers of
learning, the Druids were not unlike the
very missionaries and monks who were to
Christianize their people and brand them
evil devil worshippers.
As a result of their efforts to wipe out
"pagan" holidays, such as Samhain, the
Christians succeeded in effecting major
transformations in it. In 601 A.D. Pope
Gregory I issued a now-famous edict to
his missionaries concerning the native
beliefs and customs of the peoples he
hoped to convert. Rather than try to oblit-
erate native peoples' customs and beliefs,
the pope instructed his missionaries to use
them: if a group of people worshipped a
tree, rather than cut it down, he advised
them to consecrate it to Christ and allow
its continued worship.
In terms of spreading Christianity, this
was a brilliant concept and it became a
basic approach used in Catholic mission-
ary work. Church holy days were pur-
posely set to coincide with native holy
days. Christmas, for instance, was
assigned the arbitrary date of Dec. 25
because it corresponded with the mid-
winter celebration of many peoples.
Likewise, St. John's Day was set on the
summer solstice.
Samhain, with its emphasis on the

The date marked both an ending and a beginning in an eternal cycle.

supernatural, was decidedly pagan. While
missionaries identified their holy days
with those observed by the Celts, they
branded the earlier religion's supernatural
deities as evil, and associated them with
the devil. As representatives of the rival
religion, Druids were considered evil wor-
shippers of devilish or demonic gods and
spirits. The Celtic underworld inevitably
became identified with the Christian hell.
The effects of this policy were to
diminish but not totally eradicate the
beliefs in the traditional gods. Celtic belief
in supernatural creatures persisted, while
the church made deliberate attempts to
define them as being not merely danger-
ous, but malicious. Followers of the old
religion went into hiding and were brand-
ed as witches.
The Christian feast of All Saints was
assigned to Nov. 1. The day honored
every Christian saint, especially those that
did not otherwise have a special day
devoted to them. This feast day was meant
to substitute for Samhain, to draw the
devotion of the Celtic peoples, and, final-
ly, to replace it forever. That did not hap-
pen, but the traditional Celtic deities
diminished in status, becoming fairies or
leprechauns of more recent traditions.
The old beliefs associated with
Samhain never died out entirely. The
powerful symbolism of the traveling dead

was too strong, and perhaps too basic to
the human psyche, to be satisfied with the
new, more abstract Catholic feast honor-
ing saints. Recognizing that something
that would subsume the original energy of
Samhain was necessary, the church tried
again to supplant it with a Christian feast
day in the ninth century. This time it estab-
lished Nov. 2 as All Souls Day a day
when the living prayed for the souls of all
the dead. But, once again, the practice of
retaining traditional customs while
attempting to redefine them had a sustain-
ing effect: the traditional beliefs and cus-
toms lived on, in new guises.
All Saints Day, otherwise known as All
Hallows (hallowed means sanctified or
holy), continued the ancient Celtic tradi-
tions. The evening prior to the day was the
time of the most intense activity, both
human and supernatural. People contin-
ued to celebrate All Hallows Eve as a time
of the wandering dead, but the supernatu-
ral beings were now thought to be evil.
The folk continued to appease those spir-
its (and their masked impersonators) by
setting out gifts of food and drink.
Subsequently, All Hallows Eve became
Hallow Evening, which became
Hallowe'en an ancient Celtic, pre-
Christian New Year's Day in contempo-
rary dress.
Many supernatural creatures became

associated with All Hallows. In Ireland
fairies were numbered among the leg-
endary creatures who roamed on
Halloween. In old England cakes were
made for the wandering souls, and people
went "a' soulin"' for these "soul cakes."
Halloween, a time of magic, also became
a day of divination, with a host of magical
beliefs: for instance, if persons hold a mir-
ror on Halloween and walk backward
down the stairs to the basement, the face
that appears in the mirror will be their next
Virtually all present Halloween tradi-
tions can be traced to the ancient Celtic
day of the dead. Halloween is a holiday of
many mysterious customs, but each one
has a history, or at least a story behind it.
The wearing of costumes, for instance,
and roaming from door to door demand-
ing treats can be traced to the Celtic peri-
od and the first few centuries of the
Christian era, when it was thought that the
souls of the dead were out and around,
along with fairies, witches and demons.
Offerings of food and drink were left out
to placate them. As the centuries wore on,
people began dressing like these dreadful
creatures, performing antics in exchange
for food and drink. This practice is called
mumming, from which the practice of
trick-or-treating evolved. To this day,
witches, ghosts and skeleton figures of the
dead are among the favorite disguises.
Halloween also retains some features that
harken back to the original harvest holi-
day of Samhain, such as the customs of
bobbing for apples and carving vegeta-
bles, as well as the fruits, nuts and spices
cider associated with the day.
Today Halloween is becoming once
again an adult holiday or masquerade, like
Mardi Gras. Men and women in every
disguise imaginable are taking to the
streets of American cities and parading
past grinningly carved, candlelit jack-o'-
lanterns, reenacting customs with a
lengthy pedigree. Their masked antics
challenge, mock, tease and appease the
dread forces of the night, of the soul, and
of the otherworld that becomes our world
on this night of reversible possibilities,
inverted roles and transcendency. In so
doing, they are reaffirming death and its
place as a part of life in an exhilarating
celebration of a magic evening.

Linda Delaney
According to her nomination,
written by Kerry Shanaghan
Navy Region Gulf Coast MWR
director, Delaney is "an excep-
tional manager" that has suc-
cessfully taken over as head of
the NAS Pensacola Child and
Youth Program (CYP), respon-
sible for two child development
centers (CDC)s with 550 spaces,
a youth center and two school-
age care programs in addition to
her center director duties in
charge of the Corry Station
Child Development Center
(CDC) and School Age Care
(SAC) Program.
Shanaghan notes "she has
carried the entire program for-
ward through innovation,
expansion and successful men-
toring of her staff." Delaney has
personally overseen the recently
completed total renovation of
the NAS Pensacola CDC fol-
lowing recommendations from a
no-notice CYP inspection by
Commander Navy Installations
Command (CNIC). Completed
during a staffing transition that
ultimately hired a new NASP
CDC director, she ensured the
overall safety and child care
standards were not sacrificed
during construction. This was
made more difficult with the
work being done, to include all
floors, walls and ceiling repairs
that resulted in half the center
being closed at a time. She was
responsible for all the collateral
equipment for the center, replac-
ing older, worn out furniture
with the latest child safe materi-
als and dramatically increasing
individual room storage through
use of kitchen cupboards out of
the reach of the children.
Delaney has managed the
staffing standards to ensure suf-

ficient manpower was available
while the facility was under
repair along with completing
room setup and ensuring collat-
eral equipment needs were all
met. Through judicious use of
existing space, Delaney has seen
the waiting list for care in the
centers decrease to its lowest
level in the past six years, with
only infants on a far shortened
waiting list.
She has also maintained the
national accreditations at all the
centers. Her programs are all
certified for operation both
CDC's and the school-age care
programs by the designatedna-
tional agency. The School-Age
Care Program is of particular
note as this program picks up
students from various schools
and brings them back to the
CDC until parents pick up after
work, helping the active duty
members stay at work during
often flexible school days.
In addition, Delaney contin-
ues a state of Florida Variable
Pre-Kindergarten program that
teaches specific skill sets to pre-
school students under a program
developed by the state. The
state subsidizes the program
thus there is very little cost to
the Navy, providing much need-
ed services while saving signifi-
cant APF money. The Corry
VPK program she directly over-
sees is the second largest in the
Delaney is a caring child care
professional and superb manag-
er. She has overseen the resusci-
tation of a troubled and failing
CYP program at the NAS

turning the corer in an
improved and renovated space.

NASP motorcycle safety instructor Jim Miller receives by Syl
Holley "Superhog" foundation ... NAS Pensacola motorcycle safety
instructor Jim Miller received a letter of appreciation (LOA) from NASP CO
Capt. Bill Reavey Oct. 19 on behalf of the Syl Holley "Superhog" Memorial
Safety Rally Committee. At the rally, which took place July 11 in Cantonment,
Miller was a guest speaker and provided a safety demonstration on braking
techniques as well. "It's a good thing and it was a shock to have that done,"
Miller recalled, upon being presented with the LOA. "I wasn't expecting it at all.
(Capt. Reavey) came out to the rider safety range, where I was observing a
rider coach preparation course. It was great to be honored in front of peers."
Miller was quick to return to the subject at hand. "Everybody needs to be
aware of the motorcycles that are out there, regardless if you ride or not," Miller
said. "If you ride, get the training." Photo by Patrick Nichols


NASP chaplain uses Facebook to reach Sailors

Story, photo
By Anne Thrower
Gosport Staff Writer
Naval Air Station Pensacola's head
chaplain Cmdr. David Gibson has a
new tool to communicate with Sailors
- Facebook.
"That's the way this generation
communicates," he said. "And it's the
way you get the word out."
Communicating through Facebook
has only been in existence about a
week, so it's too soon to know how
successful it will be.
But Gibson, 52, said so far he has
used the page to encourage students to
check out what the chapel has to offer.
There are standing orders from
Capt. Bill Reavey to try and reach
more students. And that's where the
Facebook idea came from.
"My staff says they convinced me,

NASP Chaplain, Cmdr. David Gibson,
is using Facebook to encourage stu-
dents on base to check out what the
chaplain's office has to offer.
I say they forced me to get on
Facebook and start connecting with
these students," he said.
Reaching students has not been
easy. "No religious preference" is a
common response when they sign up.

If 100 students show up for Sunday
services at NASP, that's considered a
lot. Most who attend on Sunday are
either retirees or active duty who are
not students.
One program that has been a suc-
cess with students has been the service
at 6 p.m. on Sunday when 30 or more
students often attend.
The casual service offers modem
worship music and free dinner to
attract Sailors.
Gibson returned as NASP chaplain
in August after three years at the Naval
Chaplains School. He was previously
chaplain from 2002-2006.
This time there are fewer chaplains.
When he left, there were five, now
there are three and a contract chaplain.
And there is a smaller budget.
But the staff which includes Lt.
Cmdr. Darren Stennett, Lt. Randall
Ekstrom and Father John Gray is

wonderful, Gibson said.
And the mission is the same. The
students are still the priority as they
make the transition from a civilian
culture to the military culture.
"We can help facilitate that transi-
tion, but we can also reach them at a
very critical time in their lives," he
Whether they come on their own or
from orders from their chief, Gibson
said he's happy to see them.
It's not unusual to see a student who
has never been to church except for a
wedding or a funeral.
Gibson hopes to change that. He
wants their first contact with a chapel
and chaplains to be good and part of
their future.
"But also we hope they will send
their people to us as they start getting
more senior and see us as a ready
resource for their people," he said.
