Question: There seemed to be more mosquitoes
this year, and fleas too. Mosquitoes can carry dis-
ease. Is there any way we can get housing to spray
our yards for these insects since we pay rent?
Answer: Mosquitoes and fleas are a common
nuisance in summer and fall. We have 22 different
species of mosquitoes here at Naval Base Ventura
County (NBVC), partly because of the extensive
protected wetlands at Point Mugu. Saltwater mos-
quitoes, which make up the bulk of the mosquitoes
we get at NBVC Point Mugu, are luckily not disease-
bearing, just annoying! Freshwater mosquitoes can
spread disease, and there are several ways to deter
them, starting with wearing repellant when you are
outdoors and cleaning up any standing pools of
water around your home.
We monitor standing water in the wetlands and
employ abatement efforts using long-lasting bri-
quettes and larvicides whenever possible. In housing
areas, groundskeepers do a great job of cleaning up
standing fresh water and monitoring for larval activ-
ity. You can help by making sure your yard doesn’t
have any breeding areas for the insects, such as old
birdbaths or water pooled on tarps or other outdoor
covers. There was a great article in the Aug. 22 edi-
tion of The Lighthouse that covered many tips and
tricks for helping reduce mosquito activity.
Fleas are another matter. Housing does not spray
yards for fleas because the choice to have a pet is an
individual one, and flea abatement and control is the
pet owner’s responsibility. As a dog owner, I under-
stand the frustration of finding fleas on your pet. If
your usual flea treatments aren’t working, I’d recom-
mend talking to your veterinarian about alternatives,
but housing will not take responsibility for spraying
yards for fleas.
Can yards be sprayed for mosquitoes, feas? w

Hundreds of people stopped by the 2013 Open Season Health
Fairs held Wednesday, Nov. 7, in Bldg. 366 at Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC) Point Mugu, and the next day in Duke’s
Place at NBVC Port Hueneme.
About two dozen healthcare providers were on hand to answer
questions about health benefits and to provide such services as
body fat testing and even a free massage.
“This is the chance clients have to speak to an actual pro-
vider and get straight answers to questions about their health
insurance,” said Rebecca Coronado, who organized the Huen-
eme event for the Human Resources Office.
One trend she has noticed in recent years is a large number
of questions about Medicare.
“So many baby boomers are retiring or getting ready to retire,”
she said. “There are so many different plans out there. The
people here can provide answers.”
Christopher Lujan, an electronics engineer with the Naval
Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme Division said he stopped
by the event at Duke’s to check the different plans and see if he
wanted to change anything this year.
He also got his body fat checked and was pleased with the
result.
Meanwhile James Estes, a mechanical engineer with the Na-
val Facilities Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center,
took advantage of the opportunity to get a free massage, cour-
tesy of Kaelyn Curran, a massage therapist with Morale, Wel-
fare and Recreation.
Coronado said more than 300 people attended the first hour
of the event at Hueneme, about the same number as attended
the Mugu health fair the day before.

Counting the tiles on the floor as you
take a walk with your child, encouraging
your elementary school-age child to try a
new computer software program, or al-
lowing your teenager to help with the
household budget are all ways to build an
appreciation of science, technology, engi-
neering and math.
By doing these things, you may be bol-
stering your children’s chances of success
in their future careers.
The National Science Foundation esti-
mates that 80 percent of jobs created in
the next decade will require some formof
math and science. For this reason, many
schools and businesses are focusing more
time, energy and money on the fields of
science, technology, engineering and math-
ematics — STEM.
In recent years, there has been a sig-
nificant decline in the number of college
students choosing majors in science or
technology-related fields. Much of this has
to do with poor preparation for the class-
es during high school and the intense work
required outside of the lecture setting —in
places like laboratories. Experts say stu-
dents have chosen easier majors and
courses of study instead of taking on the
fields that they want to enter due to poor
preparedness.
The decision to study a STEM-related
major is usually made towards the end of
high school. However, it is much earlier
that a student gains or possibly loses an
interest in science, technology, engineering
or mathematics.
Children are born to be natural scien-
tists. They are curious and inquisitive.
Most preschool classrooms are filled with
blocks, puzzles, shapes and matching
games. This is STEM — and it’s fun.
As students grow older, all schoolwork
becomes more challenging. STEM sub-
jects may become even more challenging
than most. At this point, in late elemen-
tary and middle school, a student’s inter-
est in STEMsubjects begins to wane. This
is when parents and educators need to step
in to encourage and find fun ways to keep
students interested.
From block-building as a preschooler
to rebuilding an engine as a teenager, math
and science can be enjoyable — and edu-
cational. While schools are refocusing to
include more STEM in their curriculum,
families can find ways to encourage STEM
at home as well.
Spending time with children piecing
puzzles together, discussing how families
can improve recycling efforts or experi-
menting with recipes in the kitchen are
just a few examples of how families can
encourage STEM efforts at home.
Discussing how science, technology,
engineering and mathematics play such a
great role in our lives will also keep stu-
dents interested. When they see that they
are surrounded by these subjects, their

natural instinct will be to ask
questions, especially when it’s not
seen as “work.”
At home, science projects, build-
ing small wood projects and bud-
geting for a family trip are ex-
amples of how parents can keep
students interested.
Additionally, keeping in contact
with your child’s school to learn
how they are encouraging an in-
terest in math and science may
give you even more ideas of how
you can support your child’s
learning. Parents who have build-
ing skills or cooking skills can
offer their time and expertise to
support their own children as well
as many other students.
Many local schools and agen-
cies are supporting STEM pro-
grams. Be on the lookout for such
events.
Recently, California State Uni-
versity Channel Islands coordi-
nated a Science Carnival that at-
tracted hundreds of children. The
goal of the event was to reach out
to students in kindergarten
through eighth grade and keep
theminterested in science. Local
professionals in the science field
— even some Navy folks — took
part in many of the activities. It’s
an annual event, and next year’s
Science Carnival promises to be
just as exciting.
Until then, begin researching
ideas for science projects. Most
schools will begin science fair
projects in January. Be prepared
— especially now that you know
how important it is to support
STEM.
— For any questions regarding
how parents can support science,
technology, engineering or math
at home, please contact the Naval
Base Ventura County school liaison
officer at 805-989-5211 or email
her at monica.james@navy.mil.

Worship schedule
Personalities intermingle during family
gatherings, just as blending aromas of our
favorite meals fill the home with holiday
fragrance. Those personalities can involve
extroverts andintroverts, people whose first
preference is tothink, andpeople whose first
preference is to feel.
Extroverts receive their needed energy
fromthe world around them. Introverts, on
the other hand, often feel energized after
having downtime.
Introverts may appear very talkative, but
their conversationusually blossoms around
people they know or when discussing sub-
jects familiar to them. Their need for seclu-
sion may be strong, and they may actually
developmilddepressionsymptoms if forbid-
den to enjoy solitude over extended periods
of time.
Extroverts may often embrace the holi-
days with cheer and excitement. Introverts
mayhave mixedemotions, sometimes prefer-
ringtokeepsocializingtoaminimum. Their
preference is the small gathering of close
relatives, as opposedtothe large reunionof
extended relatives they might not know.
The dichotomy of thinking versus feeling
impacts the blendingof familymembers the
most. Those who choose thinking often
seemdirect, logical and blunt when correc-
tions needtobe made. Theyultimatelysolve
problems first andconsider feelings second-
ary.
The people whoprefer feelings make most
decisions based on their values or howthey
feel about a situation. These types of indi-
viduals are great for making sure that all
family members receive hospitality, but of-
ten their feelings may get hurt by trying too
hard to accommodate others. They take
insensitivity to emotions very seriously.
Let’s say something goes wrong in the
kitchen. The oven timer was not set, and
Auntie’s favorite green bean casserole melts
into a steamy-hot material that could pave
roads.
Those whoprefer thinking automatically
consider the obvious fact: Someone should
have set the timer. Quickly they will get up,
openthe windowandunplug the screaming
smoke alarm—they will solve the problem.
They do not notice or intend to offend oth-
ers; they simply live to identify and solve
problems. The emotions involved in situa-
tions like this usually do not grab their at-
tention.
People with a preference for feeling auto-
matically have compassion for Auntie and
immediately seektoconsole her by assuring
everyone there is plenty of food. Better yet,
they will encourage her to remake the dish,
evenoffering tohelpher andturnthe disas-
ter into a joyous activity they can do to-
gether. This creates harmonyandteamwork.
Feeling types needtoconnect, andthis goal
exists in virtually everything they do with
others.
Our personalities develop unintention-
ally, the same way as we choose our domi-
nant hand. No one remembers deciding to
write with a right hand instead of the left,
yet at some point that became normal. Per-
sonality preferences evolve the same way.
We accomplishmore byusingbothhands,
and we benefit from learning the skills of
other personality types.
On that note, I urge you to enjoy your
time withfamily over the holidays andlearn
fromthe differences inpersonalities around
you. Have a wonderful holiday season!

Each month, Naval Mobile
Construction Battalion 4 con-
ducts a command ride to promote
safe riding for new and seasoned
motorcyclists.
Different routes are chosen so
riders can practice on various
types of terrain and master
healthy riding techniques and
good safety habits. One recent
scenic trip was along the Pacific
Coast Highway and Mulholland
Road.
The rides allow new motorcy-
clists to ride with more experi-
enced ones.
“Command rides are great for
us to get closer, not only as mo-
torcycle riders, but as a command
as well,” said Construction Elec-
trician3rdClass AndrewRexroad,
an avid rider.

NMCRS volunteer
Several people on Facebook are doing
“I’m thankful for…” posts each day of
November until Thanksgiving. Most
people are thankful for family, friends,
careers, and of course, our military. I
challenge you to find ways to show your
thankfulness all year. It is important to
remember to “pay it forward.”
The Navy-Marine Corps Relief Soci-
ety (NMCRS) is thankful for its volun-
teers and “pays it forward” by providing
budgetary and financial assistance to the
military community throughout the
year.
Have you been to the NMCRS Thrift
Store? Located in Building 829, near the
corner of Harris and 15th at Naval Base
Ventura County, Port Hueneme, it car-
ries everything from clothing and house-
hold goods to sporting goods, books,
movies and uniforms.
As you know, the East Coast was re-
cently ravaged by Superstorm Sandy.
“We know people who lost every-
thing,” said Morgan Francis, whose hus-
band is Equipment Operator 3rd Class
Dillon Francis of Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion (NMCB) 4. “They
have an 8-year-old boy with autism, and
he’s lost all his toys. I’m getting stuff to
send to them and to their school dis-
trict.”
The NMCRS Thrift Store, managed
by volunteer Mary Wilson, averages
about 300 walk-in customers per week.
That’s 1,200 per month. There are 15
volunteers working throughout the week
— adding up to thousands of volunteer
hours — cleaning donated items, check-
ing for product recalls and doing inven-
tory, pricing, storage, display, advertis-
ing, administration and office
maintenance and serving as cashier.
Looking for something specific? Ask
a volunteer. They know their inventory!
There are baby clothes for 25 cents,
DVDs and movies for less than one dol-
lar. Everything is right within the mili-
tary family budget.
Builder 3rd Class Eduardo Sanchez
of NMCB 5 was buying clothes for his
4-year-old son and a baby due in
March.
“We just checked yesterday and found
out it’s a boy,” he said, beaming. His
purchase included shoes, pants, shirts,
sweatshirts, even onesies — nearly ev-
erything green.
“Green’s my favorite color,” he said.
And while he took home green, he
didn’t leave much behind. All those
clothes totaled $16.25, less than what he
would have paid for the one pair of Wee-
boks.
Sanchez said he discovered the thrift
store when he came to buy a uniform.
“It was really well-priced, so I came
back,” he explained. “It’s really good
that they have something like this.”
So how can you pay it forward? Re-
member the NMCRS Thrift Store when
you are planning a move. Donate your
unwanted or unused items. Shop the
thrift store for stocking stuffers and
holiday gifts. Save money by shopping
for yourself, and stock your bank ac-
count with extra cash!
Have questions or interested in volun-
teering? Call the NMCRS office at 805-
982-4409.

By Ensign Brad Lawler
NMCB 4
Naval Mobile Construction
Battalion (NMCB) 4’s chaplain,
Lt. Baron Miller, has always prid-
ed himself on his creativity and
individuality.
So when it came time to host an
event for Suicide Prevention and
Awareness Month, he decided to
forgo the typical PowerPoint pre-
sentation in an overcrowded the-
ater and host a picnic in a nearby
park.
“We wanted to present our con-
tent in a relaxed forumwith plen-
ty of breathing room,” explained
Miller. “Suicide is such an uncon-
ventional and complex problem,
and the usual training methodol-
ogy would not have hit the
mark.”
Given that there is no Navy-
mandated training for Suicide
Awareness andPreventionMonth,
Miller and the battalion’s embed-
ded mental health provider, Rich-
ard Zaler, had some flexibility.
With the support of NMCB 4’s
commandingofficer, Cmdr. Jeffrey
Kilian, they were able to do some-
thing totally outside the box.
The result was a civilian-attire
picnic on the afternoon of Oct. 4,
right before the battalion’s Colum-
bus Day liberty. After letting the
battalionenjoy the sunandthe hot
dogs cooked by the battalion’s
chiefs’ mess, Miller kicked off the
event by talking about howsuicide
affects young people across the
country.
Zaler brought a more clinical
view to the subject and explained
why individuals are driven toward
suicide and how their mind can
justify the act.
The last presenters were Master
Chief Utilities Constructionman
Michael Dianni and Chief Build-
er Patrick Maldonado, who gave
a heart-wrenching account of los-
ing a Sailor to suicide at one of
their previous commands.
“As a young Sailor new to the
Navy, it’s very reassuring to know
that the command cares so much
about our well-being,” said one
participant. “If I ever need to talk
about an issue or feel concerned
about one of my shipmates, I
know where I can go and how to
handle the situation.”
Those affirmative results made
a lasting impression on the com-
mand leadership, especially
Kilian.
“We will continue tolookat this
format for new training opportu-
nities,”he said. “Topics like suicide
awareness and sexual assault pre-
ventionaren’t necessarily ones that
like to be talked about, sowe want
to continue that relaxed forum.”
Informal setting helps battalion discuss sensitive issues
PHOTO BY CM2 DANIEL WYMAN / NMCB 4
Lt. Baron Miller, chaplain for Naval Mobile Construction Battalion
4, uses an informal atmosphere to discuss difficult topics such as
suicide.
Tragically, 36,000 lives are
lost to suicide each year in the
United States. Everyone is dif-
ferent, but according to Tri-
West Healthcare Alliance,
common warning signs in-
clude talking about wanting
to die or feelings of hopeless-
ness, talking about feeling
trapped or being in unbear-
able pain, increasing the use
of alcohol or drugs and with-
drawal or isolation.
If you are concerned about
someone, here are some plac-
es to go for help:
• Military Crisis Line is
available (1-800-273-TALK,
option 1)
• Self-help information and
links to resources at TriWest.
com/BH
• TriWest Crisis Line (1-866-
284-3743) for West Region
TRICARE beneficiaries.

VAW-112
The Golden Hawks of Carrier Air-
borne Early Warning Squadron (VAW)
112 have spent the last month support-
ing Operation Enduring Freedom in the
North Arabian Sea.
Based at Naval Base Ventura County,
Point Mugu, the squadron is deployed
on the USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74)
and is expected to remain there for the
next eight to 10 months in support of
Fifth Fleet objectives in the Gulf re-
gion.
Just six months ago, VAW-112 was
in the same location, supporting U.S.
ground troops in Afghanistan. During
that deployment, the Golden Hawks
closed out Operation New Dawn by
flying the last naval aircraft from Iraq
on Dec. 18, 2011, effectively ending
combat operations after 21 years in
Iraq.
During their one-and-a-half-month
transit west, VAW-112 visited ports in
Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, and Phuket,
Thailand. After conducting diplomat-
ic missions and receiving a little rest
and relaxation, the Golden Hawks were
again ready to support Operation En-
during Freedom.
To prepare for this mission set, the
squadron’s maintenance department
has been working around the clock to
get their four E-2C Hawkeye aircraft
ready. Despite aircraft transfers, long
working hours and their accelerated
turnaround schedule, the Golden
Hawks were able to launch and support
100 percent of their mission sorties.
Often called “quarterback of the
skies,” the E-2C Hawkeye plays a cru-
cial role in airborne and surface detec-
tion at ranges far exceeding any other
platform — surface or airborne. While
the F/A-18 Hornets and EA-6B Prowl-
ers provide close air support to U.S.
troops in Afghanistan, the E-2C works
to provide surface and air early warning
detection for the carrier strike group
by ensuring that the airspace and sea
lanes are safe.
In addition to supporting Operation
Enduring Freedom, the USS Stennis
Carrier Strike Group is also supporting
the U.S. Navy’s mission of forward
presence in a region that has seen his-
toric levels of tension and uncertainty
during recent months. VAW-112 is an
integral part of this critical mission and
is instrumental in providing security for
U.S. assets and regional partners.

As Thanksgiving nears, it’s time to re-
mind all Naval Base Ventura County
personnel that in accordance with regula-
tions and by recommendation of the
National Fire Protection Association, the
American Burn Institute and Underwrit-
ers Laboratories Inc., turkey fryers are
prohibited on Navy Region Southwest
government facilities, Navy housing ex-
cluded.
Experts recommend that consumers
who choose to fry turkeys at home follow
these safety guidelines:
• Keep the fryer in full view while the
burner is on.
• Place the fryer in an open area away
from all walls, fences and other struc-
tures.
• Never use a fryer in, on or under a
garage, breezeway or any structure that
can catch fire.
• Make sure there is at least 2 feet of
space between the propane tank and
fryer burner.
• Center the pot over the burner on the
cooker.
• Check the oil temperature frequent-
ly.
• If oil begins to smoke, immediately
turn the gas supply off.
• Raise and lower food slowly to reduce
splatter and avoid burns.
• Cover bare skin with well-insulated
potholders or oven mitts when removing
or adding food.
• Completely thaw and dry turkey be-
fore cooking. Partially frozen and/or wet
turkeys can produce excessive hot oil
splatter when added to oil.
• Never leave the fryer unattended.
• Never let children or pets near the
fryer when in use.
• If a fire occurs, immediately call 9-1-
1. Do not use water on a grease fire. While
awaiting the fire department’s arrival, an
all-purpose fire extinguisher can be used
if you have one ready and know how to
use it.
Turkey fryers banned from
NBVC except in housing
By Kay Blakley
DeCA home economist
Seeing pink as you’re slicing into your
beautifullybrownedholidayturkeyis enough
to strike fear into the heart of any cook, no
matter how experienced. Follow these few
tips fromthe commissarytoavoidthat scene
this holiday season.
First, make sure your turkeyis completely
thawedbefore preppingit for the oven. Thaw
in the refrigerator on a tray to catch any
juices, and allow five hours per pound to
complete the thawingprocess. Dependingon
size, this can take from two to five days. To
speedthings upabit, remove the giblet pack-
et andneckfrominside the turkey andthaw
them separately. Be sure to check both the
body cavity and the neck cavity for these
— sometimes they are stored in two pack-
ets.
If time is short, leave the turkey in its
original wrapper, place breast side down in
a large container and cover completely with
cold water. Change the water every 30 min-
utes andallowanhour per poundtotal thaw-
ing time.
If youdon’t ownaninstant-readthermom-
eter, put that at the top of your commissary
shopping list. An oven-safe thermometer
works, too, but it is simply not possible to
judge doneness without one or the other.
While you’re preparing the turkey for the
oven, take note of its anatomy so you’ll be
able to insert the thermometer properly.
Lift the legandfeel alongthe thightohelp
visualize how deeply into the interior the
thighmeets the body. Insert the thermometer
intothethickest part of thethighjust beneath
— but not touching — the bone, reaching
all the way downtothe joint. Take note that
the breastbone runs through the center of
the breast from the neck to the body cavity.
Totest the breast meat, insert the thermom-
eter parallel to the breastbone deep into the
neck end of the breast where the meat is
thickest.
The breast is perfectly cooked when the
thermometer reaches between 160 and 165
degrees. But the leg is a different story. At
170 degrees, the leg meat is safe to eat but
will be firmand have a ruddy glow, with the
thigh meat slightly stiff and pinkish. If you
prefer not even a trace of pink, continue to
roast to a temperature of 180. Just accept
that the breast meat will be overdone, andbe
sure to offer plenty of good-tasting gravy.
Pink turkey can ruin Thanksgiving

A Marine whose call sign is
“Chef ” took first place in the
First Annual Chili Cookoff at the
Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) Port Hueneme commis-
sary, defeating the five other con-
testants that included his wife and
a culinary specialist who used to
prepare meals for Vice President
Joe Biden.
Capt. Brad Erdel of the Marine
Aviation Detachment at NBVC
Point Mugu won the Wednesday,
Nov. 7, competition with “Our
Favorite Chili,” a recipe that in-
cluded, among other ingredients,
homemade chili paste, steak,
cornmeal and a bottle of beer.
The five judges — four active-
duty Sailors and an Army food
inspector — ranked his recipe
higher than his wife’s, but she
didn’t mind.
“I’m not surprised; I’m very
proud of him,”Rachel Erdel said.
“He actually does most of the
cooking when he’s home. The
only thing I knew how to make
before I met him was reserva-
tions.”
The chili cookoff is the brain-
child of the commissary’s new
director, Velma Siler, whobrought
the idea from Naval Air Station
Corpus Christi, Texas. Abakeoff
is in the planning stages for next
month.
“It’s for our Sailors,” she said.
“It brings some excitement to the
commissary.”
The second-place finisher was
Bobbie Wah, who won for “Bob-
bie’s Gut-Busting Chili.” Her
husband, Construction Mechan-
ic 2nd Class Maurice Wah of the
31st Seabee Readiness Group,
helped serve the chili to the judg-
es as his wife divulged the secret
ingredient: tequila.
Finishing third was Culinary
Specialist 1st Class Shawna May-
er, whose most recent tour of
duty was the kitchen of the vice
president’s home in Washington,
D.C. Before that, she prepared
meals for then-Gen. David Pe-
traeus and before that, former
Defense Secretary Donald Rums-
feld.
Mayer, who is on terminal leave
and is expecting her first child in
March, prepared two recipes. The
first was Black Mountain Spicy
Italian Sausage Chili with Mini
Corn Bread Muffins with Roast-
ed Corn and Pepper Jack Cheese.
The second, which won third
place, was Hunter Creek White
Chicken Chili with Mini Corn
Bread Muffins with Smoked
Gouda and Crumbled Bacon.
But no one could beat Erdel, a
culinary school graduate who
entered the military after a career
as a professional chef, working
at, among other places, the MGM
Grand in Las Vegas.
“I grewup in the Midwest, and
fall to me means football, apple
cider and chili,” he said. “It’s
comfort food.”
The top three finishers took
home $75, $50 and $25 commis-

The unburied entrance to the cave believed to be the home of the Lone Woman of San
Nicolas Island.
By Andrea Howry
Lighthouse
After 150 years, the Lone Woman of
San Nicolas Island may finally be giving
up her secrets.
Immortalized by the half-century-old
children’s book “The Island of the Blue
Dolphins” — still required reading for
California fourth-graders —the Nicoleño
Indian lived alone on the island that is
now part of Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC) for 18 years before being “res-
cued” and brought to Santa Barbara in
1853, only to die seven weeks later of dys-
entery.
Fueled in part by the popularity of Scott
O’Dell’s book, the questions about her 18
years on the island have remained a haunt-
ing mystery.
Did she tame a wild dog and turn it into
a pet, as happened in O’Dell’s book?
Where did she live? What did she eat?
What did she wear? And how much con-
tact did she have with Russian fur traders
and explorers who stopped by the island
during those 18 years?
Two recent archeological discoveries on
the island and other research findings
filled an entire day of presentations at last
month’s 8th California Islands Symposium
in Ventura.
Featured speakers included Steve
Schwartz and Lisa Thomas-Barnett, ar-
cheologists for the Navy, and a handful
of archeologists who have spent decades
researching Native American life along
the Southern California coast.
Generating the most excitement was the
announcement of two recent discoveries:
the cave where the Lone Woman is be-
lieved to have lived and a redwood box
containing dozens of artifacts believed to
have been her tools, hairpins and pen-
dants.
Schwartz discovered the cave by piecing
together two documents dating back to
the 1800s. For years, he had known about
an 1879 survey map that showed “Indian
Cave” near the already-explored Cave of
the Whales, home to ancient petro-
glyphs.
“Twenty years ago I started looking for
that cave,”he told the rapt audience. “But
year after year, I couldn’t find any-
thing.”
Two years ago, out of the blue, he got
a call from a researcher who had the field
notes to that survey. The additional infor-
mation helped pinpoint the location, but
all Schwartz could see there was sand.
Could it be that after all these years of
wind and waves and erosion, the cave had
simply filled with sand?
Students from California State Univer-
sity, Los Angeles, have spent years study-
ing archeological sites on San Nicolas
Island, and they teamed up with the Navy
in the search for the cave. It wasn’t long
before they uncovered the entrance. Then
a bottle was found that had been used by
seafarers in the mid-1800s to hold pepper
Findings may be linked to Lone
Woman of San Nicolas Island

sauce — a perfect fit on the timeline.
“We are 90 percent sure this is the Lone
Woman’s cave,” Schwartz said. “Every-
thing looks very good. I think we’ve got
it. The whole quest to find it was quite a
journey in itself.”
The second find announced during the
symposiumwas a redwood box cache filled
with artifacts made of bone, dolphin teeth,
shells and stone.
“Every time I go to San Nicolas Island,
I find something that knocks my socks
off,” said Jon Erlandson, an archeology
professor and executive director of the
Museum of Natural and Cultural His-
tory at the University of Oregon. “This
find may be the most amazing of all.”
Erlandson was walking a remote part
of the island with other archeologists
when the group spotted what looked to
be a broken surfboard sticking out of a
cliff.
“It was a late fall day,” Erlandson said,
every detail a clear memory. “It was a case
of being in the right place at the right
time.”
Erlandson scrambled down the cliff to
take a closer look. From out of the face
of the cliff he pulled what he thought was
a fossil, then a piece of whale rib. Then he
realized there were pieces of redwood sur-
rounding the find.
Immediately, the team went into emer-
gency recovery mode because the items
were exposed to wind, blowing sand and
ocean spray. The cache actually held two
redwood boxes, which were carefully
moved to the island’s environmental lab.
There, Thomas-Barnett began overseeing
a detailed dissection. More than 3,000
photographs were taken during a two-day
in-lab excavation, and an artist was called
in to sketch the findings.
The redwood appeared to be recycled
canoe planks held together with asphal-
tum, a glue Native Americans made from
naturally occurring tar that washes up on
the island. There were also two water
bottles consistent with those used by the
Nicoleño.
Inside the boxes, what Thomas-Barnett
thought would be a dozen or so artifacts
ended up being closer to 200 trinkets and
tools, including fishhooks and beads.
Some were made from the bones of alba-
tross, eagle and goose. An abalone shell,
which the archeologists nicknamed the
“jewelry box,” held 21 ornaments made
of shell and stone. Some stone pieces had
been sharpened, others had been shaped
to resemble sea mammals. There was even
a button.
Questions remain.
Were the sharpened stone pieces drills,
projectiles or scrapers?
If some of these artifacts were pipe
stems or whistles, can DNA be extract-
ed?
And the biggest question of all: Did the
boxes indeed belong to the Lone Wom-
an?
“It is a reasonable hypothesis that she
cached this on the island,” Erlandson
said.
Currently, there are no active archeo-
logical excavations on the island. Digging
stopped in April so that Capt. Larry
Vasquez, whoinFebruary became NBVC’s
commanding officer, could review the ar-
cheological research program. There is no
projected date for resumption of work at
this time.
Island finally may be revealing Lone Woman’s mysteries

The 31st Seabee Readiness Group
(SRG) table was a popular stop
Tuesday, Oct. 30, as Pacifica High
School in Oxnard hosted a Career
Day.
The rocket launcher helped.
Seabees brought several displays,
including training grenades and the
rocket launcher, to the Pacifica gym
and got a big crowd in return.
“The kids seem really interested,”
said Builder 2nd Class Rodney Sikes.
“I’m getting a lot of questions about
what we do and where we go — and
if the weapons are real.”
The 31st SRG wasn’t the only
Navy presence at Career Day. Most
of the participants, in fact, were
from Naval Base Ventura County
(NBVC). Commands with displays
included Carrier Airborne Early
Warning Squadron (VAW) 113 and
VAW-116, Underwater Construction
Team 2, the Engineering Duty Of-
ficer school, Naval Mobile Con-
struction Battalion 5, the 30th Naval
Construction Regiment, Fleet Read-
iness Center Detachment Southwest,
Commander Airborne Command
Control and Logistics Wing, Naval
Air Systems Command and Naval
Branch Health Clinic.
Fitness experts from Morale Wel-
fare and Recreation (MWR) also
attended, as did a team from Child
Youth Programs.
“This is a really nice mix,” said
Mark Fargo, the social science in-
structor at the school who organized
Career Day. “This allows our stu-
dents to see how diverse the Navy is
and see that there are both military
and civilian jobs at the base.”
NBVC is the largest employer in
Ventura County, with 19,000 work-
ers.
Fargo said it’s critical that in this
economy, today’s students know
about the many options available to
them.
“I think it’s important to give kids
as many choices as possible about
what they can do with their lives,”
he said.
Sikes called the event “awe-
some.”
“So many of these kids pass by
the base every day,” he said. “The
fact that we can come to this high
school and educate these kids about
what we do on the base and overseas
is really good.”
Amanda Haskell of MWR said
many people assume you have to be
in the military to get a job on base.
“This helps people know about
the wide range of options,” she said.
“My first job was as a lifeguard on
base.”
Oscar Fregoso, an 18-year-old
senior, called the event “pretty
cool.”
“We get an idea of what they can
do,” he said of the Navy person-
nel.

NSWC PHD
Many high school seniors are
thinking ahead to their college
careers. The seniors of Hueneme
High School’s Engineering and
Design Career Path (EDCP) pro-
gram are preparing themselves
beyond that by getting involved
with engineering programs at Na-
val Base Ventura County
(NBVC).
Sixteen students from the
EDCP program spent Tuesday,
Oct. 23, visiting Naval Surface
Warfare Center (NSWC) Port
Hueneme Division and Carrier
Airborne Early Warning Squad-
ron (VAW) 116 at NBVC Point
Mugu.
At Hueneme, the students were
shown a video and given a pre-
sentation by Capt. Scott Davis,
NSWC Port Hueneme chief en-
gineer, about the engineering
work done at the command. They
also toured the Underway Re-
plenishment (UNREP) Test Site
and the Engineering Develop-
ment Laboratory (EDL).
This is the second consecutive
year that EDCP students have
joined with NBVC though this
outreach program, allowing them
to gain knowledge about the
types of engineering careers avail-
able at the Navy base.
NBVC School Liaison Officer
Monica James said the program
“prepares students with a founda-
tion in engineering. Students elect
to be a part of the program their
10th grade year and, as a cohort,
take classes designed with an en-
gineering background in mind.
As students become seniors, they
are required to go out in the com-
munity to learn more about the
engineering field. NBVC supports
these students by providing an
opportunity for them to visit
various work sites and job shad-
ow engineers in the field.”
The UNREP tour was led by
Robert Hilger, UNREP Division
manager. He explained the sup-
port that UNREP provides to
ships at sea so they can get sup-
plies without having to come into
a port.
The students were then taken
to the EDL, a state-of-the-art
facility that provides in-house
design, prototyping and testing
capabilities for components of
the surface fleet’s combat systems.
EDL Team Lead Keith Sander
told the students how EDL engi-
neers and technicians make pro-
totypes of various components
using one of the lab’s rapid pro-
totype/additive manufacturing
machines. The students were
fascinated with the previously
made tools Sander passed
around.
The students will return for a
second visit where they will be
matched up with engineers so
that they have first-hand experi-
ence with the work done at Port
Hueneme.

VAW-116
Carrier Airborne Early Warn-
ing Squadron (VAW) 116 found
the ideal person to lead more
than a dozen Hueneme High
School pre-engineering students
on a recent tour of VAW-116: Lt.
Cmdr. Paul “Oscar” Meyer, him-
self an engineer.
Meyer started out by introduc-
ing himself and discussing where
his Navy career has taken him,
including test pilot school and an
assignment as an E-2C Hawkeye
Fleet Replacement Squadron in-
structor.
Rebecca Perez, a civilian ana-
lyst with Commander Airborne
Command Control and Logistics
Wing, told the students about her
time as a first class petty officer
in the Navy and how that helped
prepare her for jobs in the civilian
world.
The students then talked a bit
about themselves and the high
school program they’re in that’s
designed to show them career op-
portunities as engineers.
After the introductions, the
students visited the Sun Kings’
Parachute Rigger Shop, where
they were allowed to try on gear
while Aircrew Survival Equip-
mentman 2nd Class Lucas Leit-
ner told them what the equipment
does and how it protects the air-
crew from danger.
The students also visited oth-
er shops throughout the Sun
Kings’ squadron such as power
plants, quality assurance and
avionics. Each had representa-
tives talk about what their jobs
entail.
Aviation Electronics Techni-
cian 2nd Class Kenny Blessing
shared with the students how the
Navy has given members of the
squadron priceless training and
job experience to prepare them
for the civilian world.
“This tour was important in
showing high school students
some of the opportunities that
they’ll have if they decide to con-
tinue on their road to becoming
an engineer,” Meyer said. “This
was also a good chance for the
students to see what the Navy
does on a day-to-day basis.”

Help when you need it.
The Fleet & Family
Support Center
November is the month to recognize
the Exceptional Family Member (EFM).
The Fleet and Family Support Center
(FFSC) wants to acknowledge families
that are in the EFM program and hope-
fully bring more awareness to what the
program is and who qualifies.
The EFM Program is a quality-of-life
and detailing tool that is used by the
military to help ensure service members
and their families are assigned to loca-
tions that meet the needs of the EFM.
Who qualifies as an EFM? The answer
is fairly simple: Family members with
ongoing medical, dental, mental or edu-
cational special needs that require ongo-
ing treatment for 12 months or longer in
most cases qualify for the EFM pro-
gram.
Signing up is now easier with the intro-
duction of the EFM program enrollment
request in the Navy Family Accountabil-
ity and Assessment System (NFAAS). By
clicking on the enrollment request button
under a family member’s name, a request
will be sent out to the EFM program li-
aison at the local FFSC who, in turn, will
contact the service member to help fa-
cilitate the enrollment process.
But the big question is: What can the
EFM program do for service members
and their families, and why should they
enroll? Enrolling in the EFMP program
enables the Navy to take a family’s special
needs into consideration when assigning
duty stations. The EFM program also
allows for family members in certain cat-
egories to remain in the same geograph-
ical area (homesteading) so that there is
a continuity of care for the family mem-
ber while the service member is still able
to meet their sea and shore rotation re-
quirements.
Service members who have family mem-
bers in the EFM program also have ad-
ditional resources available to them, such
as the EFM liaisons, who have lists of
local community resources for those with
special needs. Those enrolled in the EFM
programmay also qualify for TRICARE’s
Extended Health Care Option (ECHO)
which is a cost-sharing program that
helps pay for certain therapies, equipment
and treatments that are not generally
covered under TRICARE’s other plans.
Family members may also qualify for free
respite care, sometimes up to 40 hours a
month.
— For more information on the EFM Program
or this month’s sensory movie, please
contact Gil Cajala, EFM coordinator, at 805-
982-8844 or by emailing gil.cajala.ctr@navy.

In recognition of EFM month,
FFSC will host a sensory-friendly
movie at the Needham Theater, Naval
Base Ventura County, Port Hueneme,
at 11 a.m. Nov. 17.
Children on the autism spectrum
may not take well to suddenly being
in a dark roomand the loud resonating
effects of modern theater sound sys-
tems. Adding to the stress for the fam-
ily is that many in the general popula-
tion may find the child’s mannerisms
—loud outbursts, flailing of arms and
legs, and other repetitive movements
—to be signs of just being a bad child,
which couldn’t be farther from the
truth.
Please join us at the movies and
bring the family. Though the lights

In the United States, lane splitting, also
called white lining, is legal only in the state
of California. Last month, Rear Adm.
Dixon Smith, commanding officer of
Navy Region Southwest, signed a policy
letter prohibiting lane splitting by military
personnel and civilians operating on Navy
installations in the region.
NBVC personnel were advised of the
change in advance during a question-and-
answer session held Sept. 12 at NBVC
Point Mugu, where Smith said that he
finds the practice unnecessarily risky.
Last week, Force Protection began stop-
ping those seen lane splitting and advising
them of the change, said NBVC Force
Protection Director Larry Jones.
“Dec. 1, we will begin issuing citations,”
he added.

HELP ON THE HOLIDAYS
Naval Branch Health Clinic at Naval
Base Ventura County announces the fol-
lowing changes in schedule for both the
Port Hueneme and Point Mugu clinics
over the next two months.
Nov. 16, the clinics will open at 9 a.m.
instead of 7:30 a.m. due to uniform in-
spection.
Nov. 22 and 23, the clinics will be closed
in observance of Thanksgiving.
Dec. 24 and 25, the clinics will be closed
in observance of Christmas.
Clinic changes hours next 2 months
The Naval Branch Health Clinic
(NBHC) Port Hueneme is giving family
members and eligible beneficiaries influ-
enza vaccines at the NBHCPort Hueneme
immunization clinic and Preventive Med-
icine Office every Tuesday and Thursday
from 2 to 4 p.m.
Several community immunization clin-
ics are also scheduled at Naval Base Ven-
tura County (NBVC).
For NBVC Port Hueneme, the flu vac-
cines will be administered on Nov. 20 from
9 to 11 a.m. near the entrance of Navy
Exchange.
At NBVC Point Mugu, the flu vaccines
will be available Nov. 15 from8 to 11 a.m.
at the Point Mugu Theater.
Vaccinations are being provided to all
military personnel, dependents, retirees,
mission-essential or mission-critical De-
partment of Defense (DoD) civilians and
contract employees. Depending on vac-
cination availability, vaccinations may also
be given to other DoD civilians.
The influenza vaccine is a one dose
combo of seasonal influenza and H1N1
virus strains that will be given either in
mist (nasal) or injectible (shot).
While everyone 6 months and older
should get a flu vaccine each flu season,
it’s especially important that the following
groups get vaccinated either because they
are at high risk of having serious flu-re-
lated complications or because they live
with or care for people at high risk for
developing flu-related complications:
pregnant women; children younger than
5, especially children younger than 2;
people 50 and older; people of any age
with certain chronic medical conditions;
people who live in nursing homes and
other long-termcare facilities; and people
who live with or care for those at high risk
for complications from flu, including
health care workers, household contacts
of persons at high risk for complications
from the flu, and household contacts and
out-of-home caregivers of children young-
er than 6 months, too young to be vacci-
nated.

feel free to contact the following offices:
Preventive Medicine Division at 805-982-

Commissary shoppers have many ways
to stretch their normal 30 percent or more
savings this holiday season thanks to spe-
cial store promotions, giveaways, coupon
offers and other opportunities for dis-
counts.
“Our industry partners are offering
greater savings through the use of high-
value coupon booklets and special turkey
offers,” said Chris Burns, DeCA sales di-
rector. “They’re also offering theme pro-
motions recognizing our military veterans
that save our customers and their fellow
vets even more when it’s needed most.”
Throughout November, DeCA’s ven-
dors, suppliers and brokers are collaborat-
ing with commissaries to offer discounts
beyond everyday savings. Customers are
asked to check their local commissary for
details on dates and times for the follow-
ing promotions:
• The Second Annual “Turkey Perfec-
tion” promotion. Through Nov. 28, cus-
tomers will receive a 32-page coupon
booklet valued at more than $40. When
customers purchase an item using a cou-
pon from the booklet, they receive cash
off the purchase of any whole fresh or
frozen turkey. There is a limit of one cou-
pon booklet per customer for this special
offer, and patrons must purchase the
quantities stated on the coupon. Supplies
are limited.
• “The Family Unit.”Through Nov. 28,
Procter & Gamble has partnered with the
USO to raise funds for “The Family
Unit,” a place where Wounded Warriors
can recover, spend quality time with their
families and prepare for their transition
back into the community. P&G will offer
commissaries more than $70 in “Brand-
saver”coupon booklets in support of this
promotion. In addition, patrons can sign
up at www.thefamilyunitpg.com for more
coupons to use on future trips to the com-
missary. For each of these coupons re-
deemed in commissaries, P&Gwill donate
50 cents for USO’s “Operation Enduring
Care.”
• “Good Food Good Life” Program.
Through Nov. 28, the “Good Food Good
Life”program will provide shoppers with
the Nestle “Big Book of Commissary Sav-
ings” coupon booklet, which includes a
wide array of holiday-related coupon of-
fers, meal ideas, recipes and cooking
tips.
• “Holiday Heroes.” Through Nov. 28,
Quaker and Tropicana will offer holiday-
bundling coupons focusing on family
meals. This promotion supports the “For
the Troops Foundation,” an all-volunteer
non-profit organization that provides care
packages to U.S. troops in Iraq and Af-
ghanistan. Commissaries that participate
could have up to $7,500 donated in their
name.
• “Operation Appreciation.” During
November, Unilever will offer savings on
their 15 top-selling brands. Up to $25,000
of the proceeds from the sales of Unile-
ver’s participating brands with redeemable
coupons from either the “Operation Ap-
preciation” coupon booklet or the Com-
missary Rewards Card will support mem-
bers of the armed forces.
• “Believe in Heroes!” During Novem-
ber, commissaries worldwide will receive
500,000 coupon flyers, containing high-
value coupons for commissary shoppers.
During the promotional period most par-
ticipating brands will provide donations
to the “Wounded Warrior Project” foun-
dation.

ter at NBVC Point Mugu.
“We’re excited about all the renovations
that are bringing these quality-of-life
programs into the 21st century,” said
MWR Marketing Director Dan Alp-
ern.
The theater renovation, he said, has
been a long time coming.
“This renovation project is much-need-
ed to improve the facility for our service
members and their families,” he said.
Needham Theater is expected to par-
tially reopen in April, begin showing
movies again in June and be fully re-
opened in July. When finished, it will have
a renovated stage and dressing rooms,
seating areas, lobby, snack bar and snack
bar storage area. The heating, ventilation
and air conditioning system is being up-
graded, as well as the restrooms.
“When complete, each area being ren-
ovated will include upgraded walls, floors,
ceilings, electrical, plumbing, hardware
and fixtures to improve both the appear-
ance and functionality of each area,”said
Lt. Cmdr. Ward Doss of the Public Works
Department. “During this renovation, the
Point Mugu Theater is a great alternative
for watching movies, and Duke’s Place
will be an alternate meeting location.”
The renovation of the NEX food court
is in response to surveys indicating that
patrons are “looking for a change,” Es-
guerra said.
With the vendor contract expiring at
the end of this year, timing was ideal, she
added.
Currently, the food court has a Sbarro,
a Rice King, a Rice King Café and Fresh-
ens, a juice bar.
Java Buzz, which serves coffee drinks,
is just outside the food court and is not
affected by the renovation.
“We are currently in the process of ar-
ranging for more food trucks to be lo-
cated on our west patio while the renova-
tion is taking place,” Esguerra said.
At least one of the trucks will be a
Panda Express, she said, and all the
trucks will be open the same hours as the
food court.
The other construction projects on base
are progressing, Doss said.
Renovation of the Warfield Gym is
expected to be completed by February,
and then MWR can begin installing
equipment.
“There do not appear to be any road-
blocks, and the updated gym will be well
worth the wait once it reopens,” Doss
said.
The Warfield closed in January. A mez-
zanine is being built for cardio equip-
ment, new locker rooms and showers are
being installed, and the heating, ventila-
tion and lighting systems are being re-
done.
Doss said the track project outside the
Beehive Gym is ahead of schedule and is
expected to be finished this month.
“The final product will include a resur-
faced track, upgraded drainage system,
synthetic turf and NCAA-regulation
football and soccer field markings,” Doss
said.
The SurfNet liberty center at Point
Mugu is expected to reopen by the end
of the year, as soon as all fire alarm test-
ing is completed. Changes include inte-
rior renovations of the walls, floors, and
upgraded fire alarm and air conditioning
systems.
CONTINUED FROM 1
Needham Theater closing Dec. 10 for major renovation
the devastation caused by Super-
storm Sandy Oct. 30.
The unit flewinto McGuire Air
Force Base in New Jersey Nov. 4
and stayed a couple of nights at
the Naval Air Engineering Sta-
tion in Lakehurst to prepare to
push into Breezy Point, Craven
Point and Rockaway Point.
The Seabees have been tasked
with dewatering efforts in support
of the U.S. Army Corps of En-
gineers and have been participat-
ing in access clearance opera-
tions.
“It’s been really great to help
those who have lost so much, es-
pecially since I grew up in the
area,” said Construction Me-
chanic Constructionman Brian
Lanasa, a member of the air de-
tachment who was raised in Long
Island. “Yesterday while we were
pumping basements in Breezy
Point, I ran into a volunteer fire-
man who is a friend of my father,
and we were able to help with his
home. He was very appreciative
of our support and we were glad
to be helping out in a small way
as they try and put their lives
back together.”
A few of the Seabees also
helped with dewatering at the
World Trade Center site, then
moved to Breezy Point for resi-
dential dewatering.
The Seabees are dealing with
cold weather. Four to 6 inches of
snow has fallen since they ar-
rived.
The last time NMCB 5 was
called upon for hurricane disaster
relief efforts was in 1989 to sup-
port Hurricane Hugo relief ef-
forts in Charleston, S.C., Antigua
and Puerto Rico.
Other Seabee battalions helped
in recovery efforts after Hurri-
cane Andrewin 1992, the North-
ridge Earthquake in 1994, Hur-
ricane Ivanin2004 andHurricane
Katrina in 2005.
Sandy recovery efforts involve 110 Seabees from NMCB 5
