Santas surprise

local children


by Sgt. Joseph J. Johnson
U.S. Army South Public Affairs Office
CORPUS CHRISTI, PANAMA - Five-year old Jacinto
Nunez hugged his Christmas gift as if to tell people,
"This is mine!" He carried the long box wrapped in red
paper decorated with teddy bears and candy canes
away like so many overwhelmed children on Christmas
day.
On Dec. 1, 41st Area Support Group soldiers and
civilians brought Santa Claus to Nunez and 39 other
children., in this village about 35 miles northeast of
Panama City.
Corpus Christi ith its one-room wooden school-
house (and sometime town hall), can be reached only by
air or horse trail. On this day, they came by both air and
land.
Seven visitors rode on horseback three miles from
Chepo to the village. A Chinook helicopter from the
128th Aviation Brigade flew in school supplies, pres-
ents for the children, Santa and his 41st ASG elves for
a day-long community cookout.
"The people in this town never had a Christmas like
this before," said Capt. Luis A. Camacho, one of the
event organizers.
"After looking at the need in this town, we decided
to sponsor the school and the community," he said.
Forty soldiers and civilians in the unit drew names of
children. Each was responsible for bringing personal
gift. The children, ranging from three months to 15
years old, had never seen some of the popular toys given
to them. But some of the adults looking back at their
own childhood remembered the kinds of toys they
liked.
"I got him one of those planes - a stealth bomber,"
said Spec. Andre L. Toussaint, a soldier from 41 st ASG
who looked forward to meeting the person behind the


name he drew. His disappointment crash landed when
he found that 4-year-old Ernesto Nunez was not able to
be there.
MSgt. Chip Perretta never got a name. As a recent
arrival to the unit he could easily have felt left out.
Instead, he brought something the whole village could
enjoy - a volleyball set.
"Who knows, the next Olympic volleyball team
from Panama may come from this village," Perretta
said.
Not all thepresents werejust forfun and games. The
group donated blankets, clothing and toiletries. They


brought a new Panamanian flag for the schoolhouse; a
notebook case and teaching aids for the teacher; chalk,
pens and pencils, paper and a backpack filled with
school essentials for each child.
"In March the children go back to school and that's
when they'll get the backpacks with supplies," said
Camacho, who plans to return for the delivery.
Meanwhile, Nunez managed to open his present
with the help of his soldier-friend Capt. Jose A. Espi-
nosa.
The big red, hook-and-ladder fire truck may not look
familiar to the boy, but he knows it's his.


Huey crew rescues


3 stranded soldiers


by Sgt. Joseph J. Johnson
U.S. Army South Public Affairs Office
FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO) -
Three soldiers stranded in a john boat for
36 hours on Lake Gatun were rescued
Saturday by a Huey helicopter crew from
Company B, 1st Battalion, 228th Avia-
tion Regiment.
The soldiers, including a married
couple, were isolated on the lake when
their boat's motor stopped.
The search and rescue started Dec. 11
after the wife of one of the missing sol-
diers reported them overdue.
"I began to get worried when my
husband wasn't back by 7 p.m.," said
Kim Thornton, wife of Sgt. Jimmy D.
Thornton, Headquarters Company, 310th
Military Intelligence Battalion.
To allay her fear, Kim had a friend
check the dock where the soldiers had
launched their boat. The friend discov-
ered Jimmy's car and the boat trailer.
"The fishing trip was only supposed
to last until 2 o'clock," said Sgt. Mary J.
Craddock, one of the boaters. "I was due
at work at 5 p.m. and my husband was


due at church at 7 p.m. He doesn't miss
church," said Mary, who works with Head-
quarters Detachment, 470th Military In-
telligence Brigade.
When the motor wouldn't crank and
darkness crept in, the crew knew it would
be along night. They didn't have much to
work with. Craddock had a small lighter,
Thornton a carving knife and a pair of
pliers.
"We tried cleaning the spark plugs,
checking for leaks, anything to get it
started again," said SFC Donald E. Crad-
dock, first sergeant for Headquarters
Company, 310th Military Intelligence.
"We knew folks back here (Fort Clay-
ton) would start to get concerned. We
were hoping somebody would be look-
ing for us, but it seemed we were the only
ones out there," said Mary Craddock.
Using night vision goggles, a Black-
hawk helicopter crew from 1-228th
searched for the missing boaters Friday
night with no success.
"When we got the call from the EOC

leaves


good


employees home alone


HOWARD AFB (24th Wing) - Air Force supervi-
sors may now grant civilian employees time off as an
incentive award, according to the Personnel Manage-
ment Section here.
"The time off award may be granted without loss of
pay or charge to leave in recognition of superior
accomplishment or personal effort that contributes to
the quality, efficiency, or economy of government
operations," said Deborah J. Brooks, chief of personnel
management.
. Supervisors may approve time off awards that do not
exceed one workday, however, certain documentation
and processing requirements must be completed.
Rewards in excess of one day must be approved by
an official at a higher organization than that of the
person making the initial decision. In many cases this
is the installation or activity commander to which a
Civilian Personnel Office is assigned.
Examples of achievements which may be consid-
ered for a time off award include:
* making a high quality contribution involving a
difficult or important project or assignment;
* displaying special initiative and skill in complet-
ing an assignment or project before the deadline;
* using initiative and creativity to improve a prod-


uct, activity, program or service;
* ensuring the mission of the unit is accomplished
during a difficult period by successfully completing
additional work or a project assignment while main-
taining the employee's own workload; or
* submitting a suggestion that has been adopted, but
because the idea is considered within the employee's
normal job responsibilities, the employee is not eligible
for a cash award.
"A time off award should not replace existing cash or
honorary awards," said Brooks. "It should be used
principally to recognize contributions that are of a one-
time, non-recurring nature. It may not be granted as a
substitute for a performance award."
In determining the amount of time off awarded,
consideration must be given to the cost in lost produc-
tion time and benefits realized by the Air Force from
the employer's contributions. Recommending and
approving officials must also consider other available
forms of recognition and cash awards and be consistent
in recommending and approving time off awards.
For more information on examples of achievements
eligible for time off awards, limitations or documenta-
tion procedures, call the Personnel Management Office
at 284-5545.


INTEL opens Fort Clayton offices


FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO) - The Panama-
nian telephone company INTEL moved into an office in
Building 519 on Fort Clayton Tuesday. It's a move
officials are touting as a boon to Department of Defense
soldiers and civilians who no longer have to trek down-
town to arrange for basic phone service.
The idea for on-post service grew out of an off-post
Mayoral Council meeting in May when off-post resi-
dents said they needed easier access to INTEL, said
Council Vice President Barbara Foster.
U.S. Army South Quality of Life Program Specialist
Bob Appin worked with INTEL representatives and
Army Garrison officials to iron out the details.
Appin said the first few weeks of operation may be
a little rough because computer equipment is not yet
ready.
INTEL Director Dr. Francisco Denis Duran sees a
great future for Army customers.
"Soon, we will have fiber optic capability," Duran


said. He explained that fiber optics will allow INTEL
to offer new video phone and videoconference services.
"We hope to soon include the services of ADAAN
and IRHE (the Panamanian water and electric compa-
nies) in offices close to INTEL so customers can take
care of all their utility needs at one place," said Col. M.
Jeffry Petrucci, U.S. Army Garrison commander.
Housing Chief Richard Davis called the combina-
tion of housing offices and the INTEL office a "one-
stop center" where customers can start phone service,
terminate service and pay bills.
Right now, the on-post INTEL office is open only on
Monday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Appin said.
INTEL might extend operating hours depending on
customer use.
He added that there may be a change in INTEL's
location from Building 519 to the community bank
building in Corozal.

Officials say Panamanian
police enforcing curfew
FORTCLAYTON(USARSOPAO) -U.S. Army
South Military Police Command officials are
concerned about the welfare of children in the
community who may think it's O.K. to violate the
three-month'-old curfew on anyone under 18 years
of age.
One official noted that the holiday season could
give youngsters the false impression that the 9 p.m.
curfew is no longer in effect.
The official said the holiday season, with its fun
atmosphere, should not lull teenagers into the idea
that they can "party all night long" during Christ-
mas and New Years.
Panama National Police officers are still en-
forcing the curfew, which includes children of
U.S. forces personnel.

Boy Scouts sale more than
2,800 Christmas trees
Albrook AFS (SOUTHCOM PAO) - The Boy
Scouts of American, Panama Canal District, sold
more than 2,800 Christmas trees during their an-
nual sale, said Col. James W. Wilson, chairman of
the Boy Scouts district operating committee. "The
sale was highly successful thanks to the support of
the community," Wilson said. "A special thanks
goes out to (the Army and Air Force Exchange
Services), U.S. Army South, the 24th Wing, South-
ern Command Network and the Tropic Times for
their efforts in ensuring the success of the sale."
The proceeds from the sale will help cover the
operating expenses in support of the Panama Canal
district.

New personnel can use U.S.
plates through January
FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO) - Depart-
ment of Defense personnel newly arrived in Pan-
ama don't have to hurry to get their Panamanian
license plates for their cars until after the new year
season (January 4).
A Military Police Command spokeswoman said
new arrivals may continue using their stateside
plates until that time.

AF youth center


begins program
HOWARD AFB (24th WG/PA) - Parents of 6-to 12-year
olds have new place to make sure their children are being taken
care of before and after school.
The Before and After School program provides children with
a structured atmosphere that incorporates homework, games
and meals on weekdays, according to John Walding, youth
director for the Air Force youth centers.
Once administered by the child development center, the
program is now handled by youth activities.
"These programs normally make a profit," said John Wald-
ing, youth director forthe youth centers, "but in Panama we are
looking to take care of our youth and just break even.
The cost ranges from $18 to $36 weekly. Walding said it is
a reasonable price for the strong individual attention children
receive.
There are presently eight students in the program.
Walding said the Before and After Program will continueuntil
summer day camp begins.
"When school's out, we will have a day camp full of
activities for the children, run by the youth center staff," he
said. "In the past we've had Summer Magic, which wasn't run
by our staff, but by ajoint effort of different base organizations,
who provided different activities for the youths. While the
Summer Magic program was successful, we feel our day camp
program will be even better."
For more information, call the Howard Youth Center at 284-
4700, or the Albrook Youth Center at 286-3195.


Air Force security issues boleta explanation


HOWARD AFB (24th WG/PA) -
Questions about boletas are plentiful, but
getting answers may be difficult. Mili-
tary security/police liaisons can help.
"If you've been involved in a
traffic accident or were ticketed for
any traffic violation while traveling off
base, perhaps you'll be asking these ques-
tions," said SSgt. Javier Rivera, 24th SPS
liaison office. "People need to know
that they're not alone, and can get help."
The 24th SPS liaison office has an-
swers and will provide help on matters
concerning Panamanian laws, whether
traffic, labor, municipal, civil or judi-
cial, Rivera said.
"Our job is to provide bilingual serv-
ices to all Air Force active duty members
and their dependents. It is the people's
responsibility to obey and abide by all
Panamanian laws as a guest of this

Castaways spend night on island


Continued from page 1
-vated the QRF (Quick Reaction Force) and had a
helicopter up within the hour," said Maj. Steven A.
Knapp, 128th Aviation Brigade operations officer.
By Saturday morning, the operation expanded.
The 1-228th Rapid Reaction Force was activated.
Teams of pilots flew two helicopters at a time at four
hour intervals.
"Anytime we get a real-world mission like this
everybody wants to volunteer," said CW03 Hugh D.
Neenan, one of the on-call pilots responding to the
RRF request.
Meanwhile, out on the dark lake, the crew was
trying to paddle toward the canal, but faced 30-knot
winds coming from the opposite direction.
"It was a miserable night," said Mary. "Every time
Donald and Sergeant Thornton tried to paddle, it
seemed we were getting nowhere. The wind was
blowing and the water was choppy and no one was out
there."
They drifted to an island and settled in for the night.
With extra gasoline they burned an area to get rid of
bugs and make the castaways visible from the air.
"The bugs were terrible and biting everybody. A
scorpion bitmy husband and that had me scared," said
Mary, who wished she had brought more clothing.
"While my wife was concerned about the (scor-
pion) bite, I was concerned about her," said Donald. "I
know she doesn't like being out in the woods with
bugs and things, but I knew we would make it. I had
faith in God and the three of us that we would pull
together and come out of this okay."
By early morning the winds subsided and the lake
had calmed. At daybreak they started paddling to-
wards the canal but didn't get far. The thirst for water


had Jimmy and Donald drinking from the lake.
"The water was nasty, but you do what you
have to do," said Jimmy.
By late morning, hope had turned to despair.
The boaters still had not seen anyone and the
winds were working against them.
"I'm a very religious person," said Donald.
"Just as we were getting tired, we noticed this
lighthouse. For some reason, the lighthouse
represented some type of significance- almost
like light at the end of a tunnel."
The three settled at the lighthouse and put a
life vest on top of it as a signal. The only energy
they had left was spent in waiting.
"My wife and Sergeant Thornton were rest-
ing. I kind of went to the side and said a prayer.
I closed my eyes and said three times, 'All things,
give thanks,'" said Donald. "I heard no chopper,
I heard no sound, but when I opened my eyes I
saw this helicopter above us."
Helicopters had been combing the area since
9 a.m. The one that answered Donald's prayer
had been offthe job since 3 p.m.
"We got a briefing of what sectors had been
covered and went to our sectors," said Neenan.
About an hour later they spotted the life vest
on the lighthouse.
"The crew is just glad this didn't turn out to be
a tragedy," said Neenan, who also reached a
milestone on this mission by logging his 3,000th
hour in the air.
The soldiers were glad to get home and were
surprised by the outpouring of love and concern.
"Unity and teamwork are what saved us," said
Donald. "The aviators, commanders, friends and
family - and the Army...Thanks."


Civilian contractor

steals electric cable
FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO) - The Military
Police Command reports that between Dec. 7 - 13, U.S.
citizens were the victims of six crimes including theft of
government property.
A civilian contractor working for the Directorate of
Engineering and Housing made off with 84 feet of electrical
cable. The contractor took the cable Dec. 9 from a DEH
truck while working in Colon and hid it in his personal
vehicle.
A thief climbed in an open window Dec. 6 and stole a
watch and $700 in cash from a sergeant living in Bethania.
Sometime during Dec. 8, a thief pulled off the roof tiles
to gain access to a staff sergeant's patio in Bethania and
stole a garden hose.
Also in Bethania, a robber broke the right rear window
of a specialist's personal vehicle and took the radio, cas-
settes and a child's car seat between Dec 9 and 10,.
A soldier was charged with disrespect to a Panamanian
police officer Dec. 11. The specialist from 3rd Special
Operations Support Command was stopped by a PNP at 4th
of July Avenue and Gorgas Street around 10 p.m. The
officer requested the driver's identification. The soldier
began to argue with the officer and attempted to flee. The
officer detained the soldier, who was taken to night court
and fined.
A sergeant was almost a crime victim Dec. 13 when
a robber pried open the window of the soldier's car
and grabbed a stereo equalizer and cassettes. The
soldier returned to his car in time to catch.the robber red-
handed. The robber dropped the stolen items and fled.

Guardsmen play Santa, help orphanage


MSgt. Billy D. Pounds
300th Public Affairs Detachment

HOWARD AFB (Theater Support
Element) - Three U. S. Air Force Re-
serve C-130 aircraft of the 914th Airlift
Group from Niagara Falls, N.Y., came to
Panama with dual missions. One mis-
sion was to support U.S. Southern Com-
mand as apart of Operation Phoenix Oak
(formerly Volant Oak). The second mis-
sion was to airlift a humanitarian gift for
the children of the Bella Vista Orphan-
age in Panama City. On one aircraft, the
914th carried a brand new and much-
needed 15-passenger van for the orphan-
age.
"To get a van for the orphanage was
the decision of Bishop David Bowman of
the Episcopal Diocese of Western New
York," said Maj. James F. Barber, an
Episcopal priest and chaplain of the 914th
Airlift Group.
The idea for a new van started about a
year ago when Bowman was in Panama
for a convention as a guest of Bishop
James Ottley of the Panama Episcopal
Diocese. During his visit Bowman had
to ride in the orphanages' 20-year-old
van.
"The floor of the van was so rusted out
that the road could be seen through it, and
the running condition was terrible,"
bowman said. "The van was just unsafe
for the children to ride in."
Bowman knew that the dioceses of
Maine and Arizona had helped the dio-

cese of Panama before. He asked the
dioceses if they could help in raising
money for the van.
The dioceses each raised $12,000 for
the van.
"If it had not been for Sgt. Dale Clear,
an operations NCO of the 914th Airlift


Group, pushing the paperwork, and ar-
ranging storage and transport of the van,
the mission would have been very diffi-
cult," Barber said.
The van was flown to Panama with
Department of Defense approval under
the Denton Program, which permits


humanitarian items donated by civilian
organizations in the United States to
civilian organizations abroad to be trans-
ported on military aircraft on a space-
available basis at little or no cost to the
donor and at no cost to the U.S. Govern- '
ment.


Southern Command Network polishes Diamond


Listeners voice pleasure,

problems with station format

by Sgt. James Yocum
Tropic Times staff

COROZAL - Just over a month ago, the Southern
Command Network unveiled a new radio format to the
Panama military community.
Now, the Diamond FM has polished its act to meet
the diverse musical tastes of the community. Listeners
say the new format works for them.
"I feel it's a change for the better," said Spec. Carl
Mason, Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion (Air-
borne), 508th Infantry on Fort Kobbe. "There's more
variety of shows now than before."
Mason said his biggest concern is that his favorite
music - rap - isn't played enough.
"I'd like to see them put a mixture of music on for an
hour in the evening - like rap, jazz and reggae"
Of course, not everyone likes rap music. Petty Offi-
cer 2nd Class Claude Home, a mechanic for the U.S.
Naval Station Panama Canal - Rodman, asked that SCN
remove rap music completely from the radio.
"Don't ever play rap music at all," he said. "There
should be more country and rock during the days."


Home also said he doesn't like to hear salsa or reggae
on the radio. "We can go hear that at Vera Cruz Beach,"
he said.
Home's biggest concern is that SCN doesn't play
enough hard rock on the radio.
"They need to play more heavy rock' n' roll during
the day like Metallica, Black Sabbath and Anthrax," he
said.
"I've never heard Anthrax on the radio. And play
some John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band for my
boss - it's the only thing he listens to."
Air Force SSgt. Edwin Boyer, noncommissioned-
officer-in-charge of munitions operations at Howard
AFB, said he likes the Diamond FM.
"It's a heck of a change from what it was," he said.
"In the past, you had basically top 40 during the day,
followed by country, while now we have request show
during the day and I hear more old rock."
Boyer said he's impressed with the request show and
would like to see more call-in shows. He also said SCN
should play more classic rock from the late '60s to the
early '70s.
Capt. Dennis Tice, SCN radio program director, said
the disc jockeys like to hear from the audience.
"We've had a couple of people call in with negative
comments, but an overwhelming majority call in to say
they enjoy it," Tice said. "Upwards to 90 percent do like


it. I don't anticipate any major changes in the format -
why mess with success?"
As for possibility of more rap and heavy metal for
Mason and Boyer, it's rather slim, Tice said. "We play
both rock and urban music in the evenings (urban 7-9
p.m., album oriented rock 9-11 p.m.), but we avoid the
extremes during the day because of the tune-out factor."
'lice said the DJs know there is an audience for heavy
metal and rock, but many more listeners turn the radft
off when that style music is played. "We lose more than
we please."
The call-in show that Boyer enjoys is a big hit with
other listeners as well, Tice said. The disc jockeys try
to find and play every song requested, but there are
some limits, Tice said.
"We won't play heavy metal or rap on that show
because it won't be received well," he explained. "If a
song is going to be hated by 90 percent of our audience,
we won't play it. Still, we try to play everything. While
the program director has an aversion to disco, he even
played one of them - one."
Tice said the station will continue to update its
selection, and it'll also rotate the music so no song gets
too much play and becomes boring.
Tice also said that the listeners should keep those
requests coming during the lunch hour show. The
number is 287-4418.

BAIDOA, Somalia (AP) - U.S. and French troops
escorted an aid convoy outside Baidoa Thursday, and
aid workers pressed the troops to secure even more of
Somalia, especially a port said to be exploding in clan
fighting.
In Mogadishu Thursday, CARE spokeswoman Angela
MacKay said the agency had reports the dominant
militiain Kismayo to the south was "out of control" and
trying to kill its opponents before foreign forces move
in.
Ian MacLeod, a U.N. spokesman, also said the
security situation in the port 300 miles south of the
capital was deteriorating.
Kismayo's port has been closed since Oct. 2 because
of clan warfare.
MacLeod said tensions are also rising in north
Mogadishu.
Asked whether U.N. officials were encouraging Ameri-
can troops to move into the north, he replied: "yes, yes
... every day."
The troops are concentrated in southern Mogadishu,
where the airport and port are located.
In another sign of rampant lawlessness where the
forces of Operation Restore Hope have yet to tread, a
Muslim religious leader was reported killed Wednes-
day night in Bardera, apparently by bandits.
Gunn Nilsson, a nurse who works with UNICEF in
the town, identified the victim only as Sheik Mursad.
Nilsson arrived in Mogadishu Thursday from Bardera,
which is 200 miles west of the capital and 60 miles south
of Baidoa.
U.S. plans call for troops to reach Kismayo and
Bardera in the last stages of Restore Hope after first
moving north from Baidoa.
In Baidoa Thursday, eight U.S. military vehicles,
including Humvees and armored personnel carriers,

and three French armored vehicles escorted CARE
trucks carrying enough to feed about 7,500 people for a
month.
The mercy mission to four villages within 30 miles
of Baidoa first stopped at Bonkey and Busley, which
received their first deliveries in two weeks.
Men, women and children dressed mostly in rags
stood silently as the uniformed foreigners and crowd of
reporters swarmed through their mud-hut settlements.
One man wandered aimlessly, holding up a swollen
index finger oozing with infection in the apparent hope


someone would tend to it.
"I've worked with refugees before, but this is a
wholelot worse than I expected," said Marine StaffSgt.
Marwan Binni of Oceanside, Calif., before the convoy
left the airport. "It seems like Africa is condemned."
The last time CARE attempted a convoy to Bonkey,
on Dec. 3, its trucks were attacked along the pot-holed
path that passes for aroad, and five bandits were shot to
death in a gunbattle with CARE's Somali guards.
The 460 sacks of food destined for the starving were
lost.

Mayors' research dangerous sidewalks

Dear Mayors' Corner,
I'd like to know if the sidewalk lo-
cated across the street from quarters 479-
480 on Fort Clayton can be repaired? A
lot of people either walk or run on it and
the huge cracks can be especially dan-
gerous after dark. I have come close to
some'serious ankle damage a couple of
times.
. SSgt. King

Dear SSgt. King,
About 25 of the 275 feet of damaged
sidewalk was repaired on Nov. 11 by
Directorate of Engineering and Housing
workers, reported DEH officials.
A local contractor began work on the
remaining 250 feet on Nov. 19 and
completed it within 20 days. Another
sidewalk repair site on Morris Avenue
was completed Monday.
Army, Air Force and Navy Housing
Offices asks that repairs needed in family
housing areas be reported directly to the
family housing offices.

Dear Mayors' Corner,
Can we get movie theater coupon
books for Army and Air Force Exchange
Service movies? I think they would
make great Christmas and birthday gifts.
How about popcorn and soft drink cou-
pons for a package deal?
Thinking ahead

Dear Thinking,
Movie coupons are a good idea and
have been tried from time to time but
AAFES headquarters in Dallas said it has
never been a successful project.
Besides the problems with printing
and packaging, there is an enormous
accounting problem, said Woody Gamble,
project officer for AAFES.


Someone must keep track of the un-
sold books and which movie each cou-
pon was used for, so film suppliers can
receive the correct payments for each
movie.
It's a lot of work, but Gamble said if
there is enough interest in the commu-
nity he will pursue it. Questions or
comments can be directed to him at 286-
3104.

Dear Mayors' Corner,
Why has AAFES changed its policy
and moved purchase orders to the lay-
aways and refunds counter? The people
in the office never were too busy to do
POs, why the change?
PK

Dear PK,
Purchase orders haven't "moved" to
layaway/refund, they've returned, said
AAFES Project Officer Woody Gamble.
POs are not part of the office staff's
regular duties. The staff did them as a
courtesy to the customer and as a result,
its regular duties were neglected. Gamble
said putting POs back with layaway al-
lows office staff to return to its regular
job.

Dear M.C.,
When is AAFES going to put more
clerks at layaway in Toyland and Corozal?
There aren't enough people behind those
counters.
I timed the customer service of one
individual in Toyland and it took 45
minutes.
The employees are slow and rude.
After waiting in line for that long, no one


wants to deal with rudeness.
We should be able to fill out our own
forms and let the clerks just make sure
they're right. Better yet, AAFES should
get computers to make layaway more
efficient.
We don't feel AAFES is aware there
is a problem.
Three unhappy shoppers

Dear Shoppers,
AAFES is very aware there are prob-
lems and has taken steps to improve
them, said AAFES Project Officer Woody
Gamble.
Computers would have made the lay-
away process easier but AAFES had
problems getting software that was
compatible with its existing programs.
AAFES headquarters in Dallas spent
several years researching this problem
world wide and now is in the final stages
of testing a program that will automate
the entire process.
Gamble said AAFES hopes to be com-
puterized within ayearin the continental
United States and two years overseas, but
for now the paperwork must be done
manually.
Customers can help themselves by
filling out layaway forms in advance.
Gamble said the forms have been avail-
able to AAFES layaway patrons since
October.
The forms are controlled items so
customers need to ask for them if they are
not being handed out already.
AAFES has also started an express
layaway program. Patrons pay a set
down payment, put the merchandise and
payment in a bag or box, and give it to a


Holidays bring more contraband violations


Many apprehended for contraband violations
It was a busy week for the U.S. Southern Command
Contraband Control Section.
Investigators apprehended more than 36 people for
unlawful transfer of duty free merchandise and other
related offenses.
Remember that in accordance with Southern Com-
mand Regulation 1-19, duty-free merchandise gener-
ally may not be given to people who do not have duty-
free privileges. In addition, people who do not have
post privileges may not enter any Department of De-
fense shopping area.
For more information, contact the Contraband Con-
trol Section at 286-3303.

Thief has credit card spending spree in states
The military police have received two complaints of
credit card theft in the last week.
In separate incidents, two people have reported that
someone has used their credit card numbers to make
large purchases in the United States.
Make sure you safeguard your credit cards at all
times. A thief can charge large sums of money against
your account in a short period of time. Report the loss
of any credit card immediately.

biles. The incidents occurred near Burger King and in
the 400 housing area on Fort Clayton. Military police
have not yet determined if these incidents were
related.
If you observe acts of vandalism in your area, notify
the military police desk sergeant at 287-4401.

Safeguarding property: Operation ID
With the holiday season approaching, now is a good
time to take precautions to safeguard your property
against theft.
One measure that you can use is Operation ID.
Operation ID begins when your property is engraved
with a distinctive marking of your choice.
Then a description of the item and the engraved
markings are recorded. Marked property is less likely
to be stolen and much easier to recover.
If you would like to schedule an appointment to
have your property engraved, or if you would like
more information, con-
tact SSgt. David Gra-
ham at 287-6762.

The thieves were caught stealing merchandise from

Tropic Times 7
Dec. 18.1992


Soldiers help

stuck motorist
On the way to pick up my sister at
the airport on a Friday at 5:30 p.m.,
my car stalled at the San Miguelito
underpass, never to start again.
I was alone, a female in a bad part
of town in the middle of terrible traf-
fic and it was starting to get dark.
Being from the Atlantic side made
my plight all the more desperate.
Some neighborhood boys pushed
my car to the side of the road where I
stood with it helplessly trying to weigh
my alternatives.
A car with two soldiers drove by
and when they saw my situation they
came back to help.
A SFC Ortiz and a Capt. Hawes of
the CMO, after a few questions and a
reminder to remove my jewelry, tied
my car to theirs and towed me to the
nearest Esso station.
There, . Ortiz talked to the man-
ager about me leaving my car there
overnight.
He then hailed a cab, negotiated,
with the driver (again in Spanish)land
made arrangements for the cab driver
to get me to the airport, pick up my
worried sister and take us to the hotel
where we had reservations for the
night.
All of this took a good bit of.Ortiz'
and Hawes' time and expertise.
The next day when I returned to
have the car towed it was intact -
thanks to their efforts to get it some-
where where it would not be stripped
by morning.
Had it not been for these two men,
a different version of this story might
have appeared in the Provost Mar-
shal's Comer section of this paper.
My husband and I are indebted to
Ortiz and Hawes of CMO forrescuing
a wife in great distress.

Direct Qotes


Dreaming of a white Christmas


by Sgt. Jim Yocum
Tropic Times staff
It's beginning to look alot like Christ-
mas - except here, where it's beginning
to look a lot like August in Tucson.
Well, it's as hot as Arizona, but it's a
wet heat...
OK, so you're a U.S. citizen living in
a sauna. There are things you can do to
make the Christmas season more like the
Norman Rockwell pictures bad interior
decorators hang on their walls.
Tip one: For those of you who couldn't
get a real Christmas tree from the Boy
Scouts or a fake tree from our fabulous
folks at the Army and Air Force Ex-
change Service, there's a way to keep
your tree-trimming desires fulfilled. Try
decorating a palm tree. OK, so it's a little
taller than the evergreens you're used to.
Get a ladder. There are ways around
these things. You can set up little elves
around the base wearing Bermuda shorts
and no shirts while they work hard to
make beach balls and surf boards. Santa
can be propped up against the trunk with
a pina colada in one hand and a slightly
slimmer, tanner Mrs. Claus in the
other.
Tip two: The weather is
unbearably hot this time of
year, which is hard for those NL-
Americans from real states
where it snows. There are
ways around this. Try a
large block of ice- you
can buy it from one of
those snowcone vendors
who pedal their sweet --_- 2
treats down Galliard
Highway. Now youputit
under your bed and leave
the air conditioner running on
high. Soon you'll be enveloped
in frigid temperatures that would ..
make a polar bear envious. And
you thought you wouldn't need
your electric blanket for another
year or two.
Tip three: If there's one thing
that really makes having Christmas spirit
hardest, it has to be the greenery during


the yuletide season.
The only thing that should be green at
Christmas is the tree in your living room
and the veggies at the local grocery store
(and most of those are turning brown by
this time). I came across this idea the
other day. Get about 20 cans of that fake
snow they have over at the exchange.
You spray it on your lawn and presto,
you're singing Christmas carols in a foot
of snow. I was worried at first when this
idea was taking form because I felt the
grass might die, but then a friend pointed
out that the grass dies around here for
three months every year and it always
grows back. I can now blanket my lawn
in a winter wonderland with a clear con-
science.
Tip four: How to get your kids to
believe in Santa Claus. I know it's tough
to tell a 6-year-old that there's this idiot
who wears a winter coat and rides a
sleigh pulled by thick-furred reindeer to
rooftops where he slides down chimneys.
Especially when 1) he knows full good
and well that nobody wears
winter coats in 90 de-


gree weather, 2) he hasn't seen a sleigh in
years, if ever, 3) he knows that reindeer
would have heat stroke before they got
south of Miami and 4) he's never seen a
chimney on any of the military housing
units. So,.a little bit of poetic license is
needed in the tale of Santa Claus. Tell
your children that on his southern routes,
Santa travels in a lowrider pulled by
iguanas named Donner, Blitzen and Jose.
Santa wears a Hawaiian shirt andjams to
beat the heat of Panama.
Well, if these holiday hints don't help
you celebrate, there's always the other
route. We can accept the fact it's really
wonderful to see the sun set over green
forests or feel the sandy beach beneath
our toes - whether it's on Christmas
Eve or the Fourth of July.
While we may miss our families and
the other things that make home a home,
it's not such a bad place that we live.
Think about this: you never have to
worry about scraping the ice off your
windshields in Panama.
Merry Christmas.


What are you doing to get the Christmas spirit?

FORT DAVIS - To give soldiers the
knowledge and instincts to protect
themselves, Company B, 5th Battalion,
87th Infantry soldiers trained in hand-
to-hand combat recently.
"It teaches aggressiveness," said 1 st
Sgt. Donald Prince. "The grunt will
need it more than anyone else because
of his mission to close with and destroy
the enemy."
It also teaches self-discipline, he
said.
"Self-discipline has tremendous
value when you actually need hand-to-
hand. When you are facing an oppo-
nent and the only thing you have is
your hands, it teaches you not to
hesitate because you don't have a
weapon..."
The company also uses the training


as a motivational tool.
"You don't normally do it on a daily
basis," Prince said, "but when you do,
it motivates the troops."
This hand-to-hand training went
beyond the basics the drill sergeants
taught in Army basic training. Sgt.
Thomas Slevin gave the instruction.
"I used primarily a regulation from
the special forces on hand-to-hand
combat," Slevin said.
He also had two assistant instructors
who are martial artists.
"We practiced for two or three days
before giving the class," he said.
Slevin claimed the-training was out-
standing, even though it rained the
entire time.
"The rain hindered (the) training a
little when it came to giving instruc-
tions, having to yell above the rain," he
said. "I think they had fun throwing
each other in the mud, though."

(USARSO PAO) - The pediatrics ward ofGorgas Army
Community Hospital now has a playroom thanks to the
efforts of the Special Operations Command South, said
Gorgas officials.
Members of SOC South noticed the children rarely
had toys to play with when on the ward, so they decided
to arrange a playroom for them.
They raised money was to buy paint, toys and other
supplies.
Because of the group's interest, Gorgas now has a
play area where children of the ward with non-conta-
gious illnesses can play with a variety of toys, read
books and play with other children.
"We needed a community service project that al-
lowed us to give to our community and also reap from
the benefits," said Dina Seitz, project organizer.
This sets a vivid example of the "we are family"
spirit shared by all Gorgas Army Community
Hospital personnel and the community they serve, she
said.

24th Wing celebrates 50th anniversary


December 1941 brings to mind
the bombing of Pearl Harbor
which led to the United States'
entry into World War II. As
part of the military build up the 24th
Composite Wing saw its initial activa-
tion at Camp Olympia, Reykjavik, Ice-
land on Christmas Day, 1942.
After several inactivations, reactiva-
tions, and name changes, the 24th Wing
now approaches its 50th birthday in
the tropical heat of Panama at Howard
AFB.
The unit accepted its current designa-
tion Feb. 11 and became an Air Combat
Command unit when'the Tactical Air
Command inactivated June 1.
Other places the wing has called home
include Camp Tripoli, Iceland; Borin-
quen Field (later called Ramey AFB),
Puerto Rico; and Albrook AFS.
In Iceland, the wing served as an in-
termediate headquarters between Ice-
land Base Command and all Army Air
Force units operating in Iceland. Its
major responsibility was the air defense
of Iceland, but construction, repair and
supplyare what it did most.
At Borinquen Field, the wing oper-
ated six major and many minor installa-
tions in the Antilles in conjunction with
the Caribbean Defense Command, An-
tilles Department, and the Caribbean Air
Command. Most of those facilities
gradually passed from Army to Air Force
control, and several minor installations
were closed.
The wing conducted search and res-
cue missions, aerial transport, central-
ized supply, Reserve and National Guard
training, personnel rotation and place-
ment and, since 1948, photo mapping
and reconnaissance missions.
While active in the USAF Southern
Command and its successors, the USAF
Southern Air Division and later Air Forces
Panama, the wing's major responsibili-
ties keyed on maintaining a state of combat
readiness.
This included providing air defense
of the Panama Canal and air-to-ground
support of U.S. Army Forces.
During this time, the wing also con-


ducted search and rescue, disaster relief,
noncombatant evacuation, and humani-
tarian missions within the U.S. Southern
Command area of responsibility.
It helped train Latin American Air
Forces and operated and maintained the
Albrook and Howard installations.
Theater operations supported through
the years included earthquake relief
to Peru in 1970 and to Guatemala in
1976.
The wing also lent aid to Honduras
after Hurricane Fifiin 1976 and to Belize
following Hurricane Greta in 1978.
Later that year, U.S. military joint
task force operations to Guyana were
supported following the Jonestown dis-
aster.
In 1979, the wing focused on war-torn
Nicaragua for evacuation of U.S. and
third-country citizens. It also supported
response to five disaster relief opera-
tions, including a major earthquake in
Columbia.
Hurricane Allen in 1980 required re-
lief support to the Caribbean and in 1985,
Columbia suffered another earthquake.
More recently, Hurricane Hugo prompted
disaster aid to Antigua.
Moving into the '90s, the wing helped
to eradicate Dengue Fever in Panama in
1990.
In 1991, the unit helped U.S. Southern
Command disaster relief efforts in the
Bocas del Toro province following an
earthquake.
More than 42 aircraft have been flown
by wing pilots, beginning with the P-3 8,
P-39, and P-40 during World War II,
and progressing to the OA-37B which
was retired from active service in March
1991.
At the same time as the ACC activa-
tion, the wing began operating and main-
taining the only C-27, C-21, CT-43 and
special mission C-130s in Air Combat
Command.
Getting the forces settled in was a top
priority in 1990 with Navy E-2s, SAC U-
2s, F-16s, Navy and Customs P-3s, and
Drug Enforcement Agency aircraft de-
ploying in support of the counternar-
cotics war.


Four A-7s fly in a four-ship diamond formation over Panama in 1978.


The wing has also expanded its radar
capability to upgrade its ability to fight
against the flow of illegal drugs.
The wing has won six Air Force Out-
standing Unit awards.
Its campaign participation credit was
with the Air Combat European, African
and Middle Eastern Theater during World
War II.
The wing took part in Operation Just
Cause, for which it earned the Armed
Force Expeditionary Medal.
Members of the 24th also deployed
to Saudi Arabia to support operations
Desert Shield and Storm in 1990 and
1991. Except for two inactive periods,
the wing has been involved in the im-
plementation of the Panama Canal Treaty
since Treaty Day, Oct. 1, 1979.
As the senior Air Force organization
in Panama today, the wing provides,


controls and supports multi-service units
directed by U.S. Southern Command and
U.S. Southern Air Forces.
Those missions include counternar-
cotics operations, Southern Region Op-
,erations Center, intra-theater airlift, se-
curity assistance, and defense of the
Panama Canal.
The 24th also operates Albrook AFS.
and Howard AFB with 3,000 people and
an $85 million budget.
Through the years, priorities have
changed, but responding to situations
and requirements of mutual benefit
to the United States and its Latin Ameri-
can partners remains a primary objec-
tive.
Today, the wing has replaced the pre-
vious command and division-level Air
Force host units in Panama that support
that objective.

PACE pride


helps residents


clean their own

USARSO Public Affairs Office
FORT KOBBE, Panama (USARSO PAO) - Some-
times goals only get talked about. But after Mayor Ann
Gatto of Fort Kobbe's 400 housing area stood before
residents in the early morning of Dec. 4 to talk about
"Pride Day" goals, volunteers put muscle and sweat
behind the talk.
Nearly 50 residents from Army housing areas on
Fort Kobbe tooktime out that day to repair and improve
their living conditions.
While workers from the Directorate of Engineering
and Housing installed new refrigerators, stoves, and
gave self-help tips to the volunteers, others assembled
park benches, fences and tether ball courts, painted
quarters, and cleaned up the area parks.
The joint effort falls under the umbrella of the
Panama Army Community of Excellence "Pride Day"
clean-up of all 22 Pacific Army communities.
"Through this PACE activity we are trying to im-
prove the quality of life of soldiers, civilians and family
members," said DEH spokeswoman Suzanne Johnson.
"...Improving the quality of life begins with the com-

Cardiac Attack captures


Howard volleyball title


by Sgt. James A. Rush
24th Wing Public Affairs Office
HOWARD AFB - Two of the biggest
guns in intramural volleyball here were
separated by only the thin webbing ofthe
Howard Sports Fitness Center's net Dec. �
11 as the 24th Medical Group and 24th
Maintenance Squadron prepared to battle
for bragging rights in the base champion-
ship tournament finals.
Cardiac Attack's Jim Meyers argua-
bly won the showdown with maintenance
star Tom Sundstrom, as the Cardiac
Attack won five of six games and both
matches to bring home the base title.
"All I can say is it takes six," said
Meyers, paying tribute to his teammates.
"We said before the game that even if
we did get beat we would giveit 100 per-
cent," said Moss. "We had a real good
series; (SSgt. Frank) Johnson had a great
day; our sets were a lot better, (SrA.
Becky) Kraus and (Capt. Mike) Schaelling
both did really well; and our serves,
which had been problem for us all year,
we kept most of them in."
Meyers' 34 kill shots were no small
feat, however his teammates earned his
praise. The Cardiac Attack had 10 play-
ers to rotate into the game, compared to
the maintenance squadron's seven. As
the second match wore on, this advan-
tage made a big difference as the
fresher Cardiac Attack made fewer er-
rors.
Maintenance was perfect going into
the finals. They were 9-0 during regular
season play and 3-0 during the playoffs
including a 15-12, 15-12 victory over
Cardiac Attack. The eventual champs
took the hard road through the loser's
bracket, posting a 3-1 playoff record
after going 8-1 during the season.


"We scrimmaged against maintenance
at the first of the season, so we knew we
would have trouble. They're really strong
fundamentally and we had little trouble
getting everything together. We didn't
know we had won the championship until
we scored the 15th point of the last game."
Cardiac Attack started slowly in the
first match. Meyers' first two plays on
the ball were an unimpressive dinkout of
bounds and a strong kill shot that landed
on his side of the net.
The score was tied at three when Cardiac
Attack coach Bernie Moss stepped to the
service line. Moss found a groove that
gave maintenance passers all kinds of
trouble. He ran off seven straight points
during which maintenance mostly either
shanked the pass out of play or over-
passed it. The latter errors resulted in
salivating perfect sets for Cardiac At-
tack's Jeff Hewitt and Scott Martin, who
each gobbled up easy kills as they rolled
to 15-7 win.
Maintenance looked to answer in game
two, running out to a 6-2 lead. Sund-
strom and teammate Jorge Haynes keyed
the streak, Sundstrom with a solo block
and kill while Haynes found the floor
with a dink and a spike off a defender's
arms.
Meyers stole back the momentum and
cut into the lead with a block of his own
and two powerful slams. This set the
stage for Moss, who again rattled off the
points - five this time - to surge to a
10-6 lead.
Eighteen serves later, each team had
only scored one more point. Cardiac
Attack's Frank Johnson, playing oppo-
site Meyers, stepped into the spotlight.
He had three kills in the final moments of
the game to lead the team to a 15-10 win.
"We didn't come here to play for


second, we came to play for first," said
Johnson between games. "Plus they
knocked us out early in the tournament
so there's a little bit of revenge in this
also."
The final game of the best-of-five
match was more of the same. Riding the
strength of Meyers' and Johnson's right
arms, the Cardiac Attack jumped to an
12-6 lead.
Maintenance continued to be plagued
by poor passing and was unable to get the
ball to its hitter with regularity. Even
when the set was there the ball was
sometimes hit out or into the net.
Maintenance did manage a brief rally
as Sundstrom scored three straight to
close the gap to 9-12. Meyers however,
stepped in to regain control and pad his
statistics with a couple more kills as
medical group won 15-9.
Despite dropping their first match of
the season and being forced to the "if
game," maintenance coach Pat Jones was
optimistic going into the best two-out-
of-three match for all the glory.
"We're still the best team," he said,
"but we're not playing so good, we're
not passing well. They're executing on


our weak spots."
"We'll come out swinging this match
and keep doing what got us here and
hopefully improve our defense."
It appeared the Cardiac Attack would
prove him wrong as the second match.
began. Meyers had three kills and he and
Johnson each had a solo block to jump to
a 5-0 lead.
Sundstrom ignited his team with a
monster cross-court slam that would have
landed inside the 10-foot line had it not
caromed of a defender first. This was
followed with a kill off the hands of the
block, a roll shot from Jones and an ace
serve down the line from John Carter.
This sudden surge overwhelmed the
medical group and maintenance cruised
to a 15-5 victory.
The respite was brief however, and
the Cardiac Attack didn't lose heart as
they stormed back.
Meyers had seven kills and Johnson
added four more. Johnson also added
two blocks and a service ace for game
point as the Cardiac Attack won 15-5.
This appeared to sap whatever strength
was left in the maintenance offense as
the champs won the final game 15-4.

Bridging the gap


Charity run raises

$2,000 for children

GORGAS ARMY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL
(MEDDAC PAO) - At 6:30 a.m. Saturday runners,
signaled by a Christmas bell, departed on a run that was
very different.
U.S. Army Medical Activity - Panama sponsored its
second annual Christmas Benefit Bridge of Americas
1 OK run.
Nearly $2,000 went to Casa Esperanza, a half-way
house for underprivileged Panamanian children.
This unique race drew competitors from around the
isthmus. What makes this run different is that it's the
only known organized event allowing runners to chal-
lenge the Bridge of Americas, said 1 st Lt. Dino Murphy,
MEDDAC public affairs officer.
The grueling 10K run took entrants from Farfan
Beach, over the Bridge of Americas, then into


Balboa, and finished up at Gorgas Army Community
Hospital.
The event brought forth serious runners like Carlos
Guerra, who finished first overall with time of31:25,
but entrants not necessarily out for the competition took
part, Murphy said.
The youngest entrant was 3-month-old Sarah Stidley.
Sarah's mother, Janine, pushed the child the entire
distance in her stroller, finishing with a time of 48:48.
Janine said that walking this event with a stroller was
not as easy as she thought it would be.
At the conclusion of the run runners were treated to
an assortment offruit and drinks donated by local spon-
sors. The awards ceremony not only appealed to the
overall winners, but also to those who won doorprizes.
The prizes, provided by Association of the United
States Army corporate members, ranged from baskets
filled with products, restaurants coupons, Polo shirts,
two nights for 5 guests at Las Sirenas, Santa Clara, and
the grand prize, which was around trip ticket to Miami.
Everyone left with at least a certificate.
Winners were:

"That was the best match I've
played so far," Punla said.
"Things were a little slow in
the first game, but the pace picked
up in the next two, and we had
gotten a workout by the time we
came off the court."
Badmintonis pretty deceptive
game, Punta said.
"It may look easy, but once you
get on the court and begin to play,
you realize how difficult and de-
manding it really is."

reflected how closely matched Punla
and White were
White is now competing in the
loser's bracket, but he is looking
forward to moving ahead and play-
ing in the championship game.
"The third round brought my

CURUNDU (Tropic Times) - Mich-
elle Estrada's second-half score snapped
a tie-game to lead the Curundu Cougars
past the Panama Canal College Green
Devils 2-1 in girls' soccer play Tuesday
night at Curundu Junior High.
The teams came into the game with
identical (0-2) records, each looking for
a much-needed victory.
Green Devil's forward Lucia Lincoln
got things going right away for her squad
with a shot from the comer that put the
Devils up 1-0 in the first half.
A muddy, rain-soaked field slowed
down the play, but not the aggressiveness
as moments later Cougars' Beth Larra-
bee knotted the game at one.
The Cougars stayed in Devils' terri-
tory much of the half, but stingy defense
by both teams and clutch stops by Devils'
goalie Liz West kept the score tied.
As the second half opened, the Cou-
gars offense got on track again pushing
the ball into Devils' territory and finally
breaking through on Estrada's break away
kick.
Cougars' coach Martin Robertson was


happy to see his offense fianlly put some
points on the board.
"Our defense has played well all sea-
son," he said. "Our offense has been
weak though."
He decided to change up the forma-
tion and opted to go with four halfbacks
instead of three.
"We'd used three halfbacks for the
first two games, so I decided to try some-
thing else," he added.
"The change gave us more offensive
firepower and didn't hurt out defense
that much."
Late in the second half Robertson
switched back to the three-back align-
ment as the Cougars protected the lead
enroute to the win.
Next up for the Cougars is a show-
down Friday night with the undefeated
Balboa Bulldogs at 5 p.m. at the Balboa
High School Stadium. Following that
game the Cristobal Tigers match up against
the Balboa Red Machine.
The Green Devils face the Curundu

NFL playoff race nearing home stretch


TWO WEEK WARNING!
There are two weeks left in this
rollercoaster season, in which anything
can, and probably will, happen. If you're
a mathematician you have to love the
month of December. It's the NFL's
version of the pennant drive, the stretch
run for the playoffs. Who's hot, who's
not, and what will happen in the next
two weeks? Take a close look at the
schedule leading into the NFL play-
offs!
The Buffalo Bills must play at New
Orleans and finish up at Houston, a
team that is pretty much eliminated. At
the worst, Buffalo will split its final two
games. But it's closest competitor, the
Miami Dolphins, end up against the
lowly New York Jets and the New
England Patriots. This division title will
belong to the math scholars: who beats
who, by how many points, etc. I give
the title to Buffalo.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have already
sewn up the Central Division title. In
the west, the race is on between the
Cinderella San Diego Chargers and the
Kansas City Chiefs. The Lightning Bolts
(who went from 0-4 to 9-5) complete
the season on the road against the Raid-
ers and Seahawks. The Chiefs, how-
ever, go into the Meadowlands Satur-
day against the Giants, and then finish
up at home against the struggling Bron-
cos. Buck says: Kansas City.
Wrapping up wild card positions will
be Miami, San Diego, and Denver. Tough
calls for the Fish and the Bolts, two
teams that played well enough to win
their respective divisions, but had tough
competition.
In the high and mighty NFC, where
winning is a tradition marked by a string
of eight straight Super Bowl wins, the


playoff picture is still being painted. Last
week I informed those of you who cared,
that the Green Bay Packers' bandwagon
was rolling right along. The Minnesota
Vikings magic number is still one game.
This week the Vikes must go into Three
Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh, while Gang
Green entertains the unpredictable Rams.
The Vikings have a one game lead
over the Packers with two games to go. A
Green Bay win, coupled with a Minne-
sota loss this weekend, would set the
stage for the showdown between the two
arch-rivals in the NFC Central Division
title game in Minnesota on December
27th. But it won't happen!
The Vikings will upset the Steelers at
home to lock up the title.
Dallas, although dropping a heart-
stopper against Washingtonlast week, is
still in control. With Atlanta and Chi-
cago as its remaining foes, there should
be no problem putting the NFC East title
away. The San Francisco 49ers ran wild
against Minnesota last week, serving notice
that the road to Pasadena passes through
the Golden Gate. New Orleans, the NFL's
best second-place team, lies waiting in
the shadows, however.
The wild card teams will be New Or-
leans, Washington, and Philadelphia. Sony
Green Bay.
Remember, the wild card games will
be played on Jan. 2 and 3. Barring any in-
juries, holiday drunk driving accidents,
or nuclear holocausts, the opening round
of the NFL post-season play will look
like this: San Diego at Miami, Denver at
Kansas City, Washington at New Or-
leans, and Philadelphia at Minnesota.
Except for the Kansas City-Denver
game, all the match-ups could go either
way. Miami, the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
team, should be able to pull out a victory
at home. The San Diego defense is fifth
against the run in the NFL so Dolphins
QB Dan Marino will have to be right on
the money with his passes.
Kansas City, who plays Denver the
last week of the season, will win two in a
row against the pitiful Broncos.
The Redskins, the second hottest
team in the NFL during December, will

Brotherly love in girls' home


by MSgt. Tony Nauroth
USARSO Public Affairs Office
PANAMA CITY, Panama - At the Bella Vista
Home for Girls of the Capital City, purple-shirted
brothers of the Omega Psi Phi service fraternity were
making alist.,.and checking it four or five times.


They brought gifts for "their girls" and they wanted
to make sure every youngster got one.
"Twenty-two ... twenty-three ... twenty-four... twenty-
FIVE. We madeit," Lt. Col. Moses Whitehurst counted
aloud.
Although Saturday was Christmas decorating day
and presents flowed under the two pine trees in the large


recreation room, the soldiers, airmen and sailors of the
fraternity visit at least once a month to share some time
and celebrate birthdays. They've adopted the entire
orphanage.
It's a comfortable surrounding for military men (The
fraternity is an all-male organization, although mem-
bers bring their wives with them to help.) Signs of
discipline and organization give it an atmosphere of
home. Lists of chores similar to duty rosters are posted
near dos and don't that echo the straight and narrow
world of military regulations.
Morale-building influences, like the sign that reads,
"Friends are the family we choose to have" recall a "Be
all you can be" attitude.
The girls range in age from five to 18 according to
the home's director, Rosalba Mathews.
"They can leave then, if they choose," she said.
"Most decide to stay longer."
Maj. Harry J. Turner from U.S. Southern Command
had his hands full of three clinging vines who just
wouldn't let him go. Maria Luisa Ruiz, Eileen Ortega
and Trinidad Reyes scrunched up in his lap and hugged
him tight.
"They always do this," he said, laughing.
The group celebrated two birthdays, including the
fraternity's own 82nd. They trimmed the trees, and then
Air Force Maj. Tom Martin and SSgt. Manuel Stokes
from the Army's 59th Engineer Co. played jump rope
with the girls.
Finally, the presents were passed out Dresses, watches
and other teenage dreams went to the older girls. Dolls,
games and such went to the young ones in a multicol-
ored snowstorm of loose wrappings.
When the squad of purple visitors (most wore their
fraternity shirts) said their good-byes, Valentina Cedeno
-ateenager-still clutched herunopened box with its
big green bow on top. When asked why she hadn't
opened it, she said, "I can't. It's too beautiful!"


Canal Treaty transfers


continuing
FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO)
- The U.S. Army will finish transferring
13 buildings containing 92 one-bedroom
apartments and surrounding property in
the Curundu Heights area to the govern-
ment of Panama today. A ceremony at
Curundu Heights today will cap the month-
long transfer with U.S. Southern Com-
mand, U.S. Army South, U.S. Embassy,
and Panamanian government officials.
This transfer of U.S. military facili-
ties underthe 1977 Panama Canal Treaty
- which calls for all properties under
U.S. control in Panama to be transferred
to Panama by Dec. 31, 1999 - began in
mid-November and will conclude with
the joint inspections of the last of these
buildings Tuesday.
With these turnovers, all housing units
at Curundu Heights have been trans-
ferred to Panama. The first 20 family
housing units were turned over in Octo-
ber 1979 and 88 additional housing units
in October 1982.
' The buildings (570-579 on River Road
near the Army laundry and 500-502 on
the main Curundu Road) were main-
tained by the U.S. Army South Director-
ate of Engineering and Housing as bache-
lor officers quarters.
"It is the intention of the U.S. Army
South leadership to fully comply with the
letter and spirit of the Panama Canal
Treaty by executing the plans for treaty
implementation," said Brig. Gen. James


smoothly
Wilson, deputy commanding general of
U.S. Army South.
"This is a good sign for Panama, for
once again the transition of properties
has been smooth, without property loss
or vandalism," said Adolfo de Obarrio,
executive director of the Panamanian
government's Canal Area Consultative
Council.
"Additionally, the immediate use of
this property by the Ministry of Agricul-
ture will save hundreds of thousands of
dollars yearly in rent payments and will
consolidate MIDA's offices spread
throughout Panama City into a single
area," he said.
"We confirmed that each of the apart-
ments was clean and sanitary prior to
turnover and that the plumbing and elec-
trical systems were functioning prop-
erly," said Angel Cotto-Perez, DEH Treaty
Implementation representative.
Joint inspections of all these buildings
with Panamanian authorities were con-
ducted before the turnover.
Col. Richard O'Connor, Director,
Center For Treaty Implementation,
USSOUTHCOM, commented that the
transfer of the BOQ is an excellent ex-
ample of how the U.S. military commu-
nity can work together with the govern-
ment ofPanama to ensure that all aspects
of the Panama Canal Treaty are carried
out in a manner which benefits all con-
cerned.


Group plans annual Just Cause protest


FORT CLAYTON (USARSO PAO) - Some Pana-
manians may protest the third anniversary of Operation
Just Cause this weekend.
At least one local newspaper reports that crowds
dressed in black and carrying black flags will be in the
streets Sunday for what Isabel Corro, leader of the
group "Fallen of 20 December" is calling "the great
black march."
U.S. Army South officials characterize this group as
"nonviolent," but "anti-U.S." and are urging all U.S.
citizens to stay clear of the area between Porras Park


and the El Chorrillo section of Panama City Sunday af-
ternoon. According to USARSO Military Police Com-
mand and military intelligence officials, U.S. personnel
should also avoid the following areas during the dates
and times noted.
*Journalists' Union Hall on Ecuador Avenue Thurs-
day after p.m. (command grid map coordinates E-1 0).
*A vigil at the Jardin de Paz (Garden of Peace)
cemetery in the Parque Lefevre area this morning.
(command grid map coordinates C-23).
*A second vigil at the Plaza Cinco de Mayo (Porras


Park) will last from 2 p.m. until midnight Saturday.
(command grid map coordinates D-9 & 10).
*A memorial mass is scheduled at Jardin de Paz
Sunday at 9 a.m.
*The Sunday afternoon "great black march" will
begin between 3 and 4 p.m. The entire area between
Porras Park and El Chorrillo may be affected (com-
mand grid map coordinates C and D, 4 through 10).
Officials also identified other potential trouble spots
as the University of Panama, the U.S. Embassy, and the
intersection of July 4th Avenue and Avenue A.

Members of the SOUTHCOM Family:
Christmas is a special time of year for the military and their.families.
Christmas is particularly meaningful for those of us stationed overseas,
thousands of miles from friends and families. And to those of you who serve
your country here in SOUTHCOM, I want to wish you a very merry Christmas,
a joyful holiday season, and a happy New Year. I particularly want to recognize
those from the SOUTHCOM family on duty during the holidays here in Panama
and throughout Central and South America. I am extremely proud of each of
you and thank you for what you are doing for your country.
This is my third Christmas in Panama and clearly the best one yet. We have
much to celebrate and much to be grateful for. Peace on earth and goodwill
toward men has special meaning this Christmas for the people in the small
Central American country of El Salvador. Peace now reigns in El Salvador after
10 years of a bitter civil war, and each of you was responsible in bringing peace
to that country. You also are bringing hope for a better life to millions of our
neighbors and friends here in Panama and throughout Central and South
America. Let me add a special thanks to the families and spouses whose
support means so much and whose sacrifices are greatly appreciated by all of
US.
Troops, as we look to a New Year I am excited about the challenges and
opportunities in 1993. Working together as one team, we can make a
difference. That team not only includes soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines,
but dedicated civilians and all members of the interagency team. We truly are
one family in SOUTHCOM, and I know I can count on your support. Let me also
ask that you share the joy of the season with your fellow servicemen and
women and with our neighbors and friends throughout the region.
So thanks for all you have done in 1992 - and get ready for a challenging and
exciting 1993. God bless you, and have a safe, joyous holiday season.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Yearl

Theatre Arts Center performs "Nutcracker"


C hristmas is a time for traditions. People
spend the holiday season baking cookies,
stringing lights, decorating trees, buying gifts
and partaking in all sorts of festivities.
Not all those holiday activities are possible in
Panama: one can't enjoy building snowmen or watch-
ing icicles form. But, one tradition is available for
those spending a tropical Christmas, and that's seeing
"The Nutcracker" performed on stage.
The Pacific Theater Arts Center is presenting an
adaptation of the Christmas classic written by June
Walker Rogers. It's directed by the duo of JoAnne
Mitchell and Jerry Brees. This is not the typical
version, usually performed by ballet companies, but
this production includes many dance numbers to the
music of Tchaikovsky's
famous "Nutcracker
Suite."
The center's version
contains all the spectacle
of the ballet version. The ,
costumes are dazzling, the
sets are festively deco-
rated and they even
managed to make a
Christmas tree grow to
double its size on stage, a
feat that is a real crowd-
pleaser.
The cast is gigantic.
More than 70 children and
adults dressed as mice,
flowers, bon-bons, candy
canes, toy soldiers and a
few humans parade across
the stage. Some of the


most outstanding characters include Robert Mitchell
as the Mouse King, Corinne Boyer and Bonny
Pierzina as the candy canes, Choi Collins as the
Snow Queen, Katie McAleer as Clara and Ben Davis
in the title role.
The show is choreographed by Beth Storey Taylor,
Linda Dahlstrom and Barbra Berger. There is a wide
variety of dancing, from the graceful Arabesque
"Coffee" dance by Taylor, to the adorable bon-bons
played by 17 sweet-faced little girls hopping around
in white tutus. The bon-bons enter the stage under the
flowing red satin skirts of Mother Ginger, played by
Judy Topletz.
This version of the "Nutcracker" is written with
children in mind, but the beauty of the staging makes
it enjoyable for adults as
well.
If seeing the "Nut-
cracker"is one of your
family's Christmas activi-
ties, you still have a week-
end left to catch it. Shows
are Friday at 8 p.m., Sat-
urday and Sunday at 2
p.m. If you've never seen
the "Nutcracker," take
your whole family to the
Pacific Theater Arts Cen-
ter, and the dazzling spec-
Sttacle of this show will put
the "Nutcracker"on your
list of Christmas tradi-
tions. Call286-3152/3814.

They've adopted the entire orphanage. It's a comfortable surrounding for military men (The fraternity is an all-male organization, although members bring their wives with them to help.) Signs of discipline and organization give it an atmosphere of home. Lists of chores similar to duty rosters are posted near dos and don'ts that echo the straight and narrow world of military regulations. Morale-building influences, like the sign that reads, "Friends are the family we choose to have" recall a "Be all you can be" attitude. The girls range in age from five to 18 according to the home's director, Rosalba Mathews. "They can leave then, if they choose," she said. "Most decide to stay longer." Maj. Harry J. Turner from U.S. Southern Command had his hands full of three clinging vines who just wouldn't let him go. Maria Luisa Ruiz, Eileen Ortega and Trinidad Reyes scrunched up in his lap and hugged him tight. "They always do this," he said, laughing.

De.1,92Tropictivities Dec.18,A1992 n entertainment guide for the U.S. community In Panama Page B I Commander in Chief US Southern Command Quarry Heights, Panama ~ MNO December 17, 1992 Members of the SOUTHCOM Family: Christmas is a special time of year for the military and their families. Christmas is particularly meaningful for those of us stationed overseas, thousands of miles from friends and families. And to those of you who serve your country here in SOUTHCOM, I want to wish you a very merry Christmas, a joyful holiday season, and a happy New Year. I particularly want to recognize those from the SOUTHCOM family on duty during the holidays here in Panama and throughout Central and South America. I am extremely proud of each of you and thank you for what you are doing for your country. This is my third Christmas in Panama and clearly the best one yet. We have much to celebrate and much to be grateful for. Peace on earth and goodwill toward men has special meaning this Christmas for the people in the small Central American country of El Salvador. Peace now reigns in El Salvador after 10 years of a bitter civil war, and each of you was responsible in bringing peace to that country. You also are bringing hope for a better life to millions of our neighbors and friends here in Panama and throughout Central and South America. Let me add a special thanks to the families and spouses whose support means so much and whose sacrifices are greatly appreciated by all of us. Troops, as we look to a New Year I am excited about the challenges and opportunities in 1993. Working together as one team, we can make a difference. That team not only includes soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines, but dedicated civilians and all members of the interagency team. We truly are one family in SOUTHCOM, and I know I can count on your support. Let me also ask that you share the joy of the season with your fellow servicemen and women and with our neighbors and friends throughout the region. So thanks for all you have done in 1992 -and get ready for a challenging and exciting 1993. God bless you, and have a safe, joyous holiday season. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! A.
