POCBernie Haney, Tournament Director KSUGCMRF 5200 Colbert Hills Dr. Manhattan, KS 66503 (785) 565-1719 (cell)(785) 776-1290 (fax)New pet policy effective June 1: Picerne Military Housing is a pet-friendly company and is sensitive to the relationships that exist between itsresidents and their pets, according to Alison Birney, community management director, Picerne Military Housing. While residents are expectedto take responsibility for the care of homes and yards, pet damages continue to be a challenge. In order to maintain the existing three pet limitand address this challenge, Picerne has revised its pet policy. Beginning June 1, all new leases will require a $75 refundable pet deposit and a $75non-refundable pet fee for each pet. Current residents are exempt from the policy change unless a new pet is obtained or is not currently on thelease. Deposits and fees must be paid in full before residents move into a home or before a new pet is brought home. “Picerne understands petsprovide a level of support, comfort and stability to Families and wants to be supportive of Families who have pets,” Birney said. “We worked
  • with our Army partner in determining a pet policy that is fair and reasonable.” Residents are responsible for any damages to their homes, andpet deposits help offset potential move-out charges caused by pets. Residents without pet damages at move out time will receive a depositrefund. Residents are allowed to own up to three approved pets in any combination. Dogs and cats are the only authorized pets in Familyhousing at Fort Riley. Unauthorized pets include ferrets, snakes, pot-bellied pigs, monkeys and other sylvatic animals.

  • Estes Gate to open June 11: With the completion of a $7.2-million congressionally-funded military construction project, Estes Gate will reopenat 5 a.m. June 11. The gate closed July 20, 2011, to undergo a series of upgrades to bring it into compliance with the Office of the ProvostMarshall’s criteria for Access Control Points. Instead of a single inbound traffic lane, Estes Gate will have four lanes of ID check stations. “This willallow greater throughput into the post. Before, there was one guard booth with one lane,” said Will Paskow, supervisor, access control,Directorate of Emergency Services. Paskow said the gate used to bring in about 3,000 people between 5 and 9 a.m. – typical physical traininghours.In addition to more efficient access from the west side of the post, Estes Gate also will have a new vehicle search area, Paskow said. “Weare now in a better position for force protection, allowing us to search passenger and commercial vehicles when needed,” he said. Paskow saidall parties involved with construction, the Army Corps of Engineers, Directorate of Public Works and a contractor out of Texas worked togetherin a cooperative fashion to make everything run smoothly. “(Construction) is not completed yet, but so far, everything looks how it’s supposedto look,” he said. The first week to 10 days of the new traffic pattern will require extra caution as drivers approach Estes ACP, Paskow said.“Please use patience and cooperate with the staff as we’re getting everybody through,” he said. Estes Gate will operate from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m.,Monday to Friday, and will be closed on weekends and federal holidays. By Pamela Redford 1st Inf. Div. PostYoure invited to attend a FREE Webinar!

  • The Army’s Birthday: 14 June 1775: When the American Revolution broke out, the rebellious colonies did not possess an army in the modernsense. Rather, the revolutionaries fielded an amateur force of colonial troops, cobbled together from various New England militia companies.They had no unified chain of command, and although Artemas Ward of Massachusetts exercised authority by informal agreement, officers fromother colonies were not obligated to obey his orders. The American volunteers were led, equipped, armed, paid for, and supported by thecolonies from which they were raised. In the spring of 1775, this “army” was about to confront British troops near Boston, Massachusetts. Therevolutionaries had to re-organize their forces quickly if they were to stand a chance against Britain’s seasoned professionals. Recognizing theneed to enlist the support of all of the American seaboard colonies, the Massachusetts Provincial Congress appealed to the Second ContinentalCongress in Philadelphia to assume authority for the New England army. Reportedly, at John Adams’ request, Congress voted to “adopt” theBoston troops on June 14, although there is no written record of this decision. Also on this day, Congress resolved to form a committee “to bringin a draft of rules and regulations for the government of the Army,” and voted $2,000,000 to support the forces around Boston, and those atNew York City. Moreover, Congress authorized the formation of ten companies of expert riflemen from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia,which were directed to march to Boston to support the New England militia. George Washington received his appointment as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army the next day, and formally took command at Boston on July 3, 1775. John R. Maass, Historian, US Army Center ofMilitary History

  • Prevent Uninvited Guests From Ruining Your Picnic: Did you know that each year roughly one out of six Americans (or 48 million people) getssick, 128,000 Americans are hospitalized and 3,000 die from foodborne diseases? As picnic season begins, don’t let the uninvited guest of afoodborne illness ruin your outing! Enjoying a picnic during a beautiful summer day is a great way to socialize with friends and family, but don’tforget to remember these tips to make your day fun and safe. Wash your hands! Half of all food-borne illness can be eliminated by properhand-washing. It’s never too early to start teaching children how to wash their hands correctly, too. Hands should be washed in warm waterwith soap before cooking foods and after handling raw meat, seafood and poultry. Hands should be washed for 20 seconds, or the same time ittakes you to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice. And don’t forget to wash your cooking surfaces and replace your dishcloths and sponges on aregular basis. Keep raw meats and ready-to-eat foods separate. Be sure to place your raw meat on the bottom shelf in your refrigerator andbelow any ready-to-eat foods such as fruits and vegetables. Also, remember to use a clean serving dish and utensil for any cooked meats thatyou are serving to your family and friends. When dining outside, be sure to bring two coolers with you. Use one for raw meats and the ready-to-eat foods in the other. Cook to proper food temperatures. The only way to make sure you are cooking foods to their proper temperatures is byusing a meat thermometer. They are a very inexpensive way of making sure you save a trip to the emergency room! Cook ground meats to 160degrees; poultry to 165 degrees; steak/roasts to 145 degrees; pork to 145 degrees with fresh, raw ham to 160 degrees; and egg casseroles to160 degrees. Also, don’t forget to reheat any leftovers to 165 degrees before being served. Stay out of the “danger zone”! Food should not beleft out longer than two hours at one time. Your food should be kept below 40 degrees or above 140 degrees to prevent it from being in the“danger zone.” This is especially critical at picnics and pot-luck dinners when the time passes by fast and the snacks and dishes are nibbled onthroughout the day. Be sure to have coolers and ice on hand or a refrigerator nearby to keep the foods stored in. By remembering these fourtips, your picnic outing will be a safe and memorable one!
