MV CAPE HUDSON DEPLOYS IN SUPPORT OF EXERCISE “COBRA GOLD”

MV CAPE HUDSON sailed to Thailand at the end of January to support the multinational training exercise Cobra Gold.

The goal of the annual exercise, now in its 38th year, is to strengthen security in the Indo-Pacific region.

CAPE HUDSON is a MARAD Ready Reserve Force (RRF) vehicles carrier chartered by MSC to MM&P-contracted Matson Navigation.

The 750-foot-long roll-on, roll-off vessel has four decks of cargo space that can carry approximately 38,000 tons of cargo.

At the helm of CAPE HUDSON are members of Masters, Mates & Pilots.

“The customers have been very happy with this ship,” said Captain Don Sacca in an interview with Grady Fontana of Military Sealift Command Far East.

“They picked this ship in particular because of its size.”

After leaving its berth in San Francisco, CAPE HUDSON took on cargo in Tacoma, Hawaii, Guam and Japan before arriving in Thailand at the end of January.

There, it offloaded over 400 containers and other items in about four days before leaving to deliver equipment for other missions.

The voyage was part of Pacific Pathways 19-1, which links a single MSC charter vessel on a single voyage plan to a series of U.S. Pacific Command-directed exercises with partner militaries.

As a commercial ship that belongs to the RRF fleet, CAPE HUDSON has supported many military charters.

Sacca said supporting Cobra Gold has been a very positive experience.

“I consider myself lucky that I’m on the ship that was selected for this mission,” he said. “It’s been a lot of fun and hard work.”

“Commercial ships don’t usually get to go to these ports anymore; they go to the mega-container hubs, so this is a really good opportunity for the crew.”

MSC operates approximately 120 non-combatant, civilian-crewed ships that replenish U.S. Navy ships, conduct specialized missions, strategically preposition combat cargo at sea around the world and move military cargo and supplies used by deployed U.S. forces and coalition partners.

In the course of its military career, CAPE HUDSON has participated in a variety of operations that include Operation Desert Storm (Aug. 15, 1990 – May 20, 1992), Operation Enduring Freedom (Jan. 29, 2003 – July 29, 2003) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (Jan. 17, 2004 – May 27, 2004 and July 3, 2004 – May 29, 2005).

U.S. TO STUDY EFFECTIVENESS OF TRANSPORTATION WORKER IDENTIFICATION CARD PROGRAM

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a statement saying it is preparing to assess the effectiveness of the Coast Guard’s Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) program.

The program is intended to reduce security risks at maritime facilities.

To evaluate whether or not the program has met its objectives, DHS plans to conduct interviews at maritime facilities and terminals.

Last year, amid questions over the program’s effectiveness, Congress passed a law delaying the Coast Guard’s implementation of a rule requiring facilities to have biometric card readers until the assessment is completed.

The report, which will be conducted under contract for the Homeland Security Operational Analysis Center (HSOAC), will be released to the public.

Comments on the effectiveness of the TWIC program should be submitted before April 8, 2019, to docket number DHS–2018–0052, at the Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov.

You can also mail your comments or have them delivered to: Science and Technology Directorate, ATTN: Chief Information Office—Mary Cantey, 245 Murray Drive, Mail Stop 0202, Washington, DC 20528.

All submissions must include the agency name and docket number DHS–2018–0052.

All comments received will be posted without change to http://www.regulations.gov, including any personal information provided.

Comments submitted by fax or email and those submitted after the comment period will not be accepted.

For more information, contact Program Manager Scott Randels, Scott.Randels@hq.dhs.gov or 202-254-6053.

Two strong advocates for the U.S.-flag fleet—Rep. John Garamendi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-N.Y.)–have been appointed to chair House subcommittees which oversee issues important to America’s maritime industry.

Garamendi will chair the House Armed Services Committee’s Readiness Subcommittee, which has jurisdiction over Department of Defense programs on military readiness, the civilian and contract workforce, training and logistics.

Maloney will chair the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee’s Coast Guard & Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, which oversees the U.S. Coast Guard and the regulation of shipping, ports and waterways.

MV OCEAN GIANT ON SUPPLY MISSION FOR U.S. ANTARCTIC PROGRAM

MV OCEAN GIANT arrived last week at the National Science Foundation (NSF) McMurdo Station in Antarctica with a load of supplies including vehicles, food and building materials.

Aboard the ship are MM&P licensed deck officers Captain Timothy Arey, Chief Mate George Leonov, Second Mate Justin Moore and Third Mate Timothy Patrick.

The vessel is operated by Waterman/SEACOR for Military Sealift Command in support of Operation Deep Freeze, the Joint Task Force Support for Antarctica mission to the NSF-managed U.S. Antarctic Program.

OCEAN GIANT delivered 80 percent of the supplies needed for the year on Antarctica: 498 containers and other cargo totaling almost seven million pounds, including frozen and dry food stores, building materials, vehicles and electronic equipment and parts.

With minimal supplies coming in once the summer window has closed, the supplies delivered by the ship are vital for survival through the long winter.

OCEAN GIANT departs McMurdo with 450 containers carrying station waste and recyclables, along with ice-core samples for scientific study.

MSC has provided supplies and fuel to scientists operating from the remote base since McMurdo Station was established in 1955.

NEW STRIKE VOTE BY TEACHERS IN WEST VIRGINIA; MORE TEACHERS WALK OUT IN DENVER AND CHICAGO

Public school teachers in West Virginia voted overwhelmingly last week to authorize a new strike, less than a year after their groundbreaking nine-day walkout in March 2018.

Last year’s strike, which ended when the teachers won 5 percent raises for themselves and other West Virginia state workers, sparked similar protests in Oklahoma, Kentucky, Arizona and elsewhere.

The new strike vote came in response to passage by the West Virginia State Senate of a measure that would take funding away from public schools and steer it instead to charter and private schools.

“We feel like it’s retaliation for what we did last spring,” said Fred Albert, president of the American Federation of Teachers-West Virginia, one of the state’s two main teachers unions.

Before last year’s strike, teachers in West Virginia public schools had gone years without a raise; many had actually experienced a drop in take-home pay because of increases in health care premiums.

The success of last year’s strike was all the more remarkable given the fact that teachers in West Virginia are barred by law from striking.

In related news, last week teachers and educational support staff at four Chicago charter schools walked out of their classrooms in a fight for wage parity with public school teachers, smaller class sizes and more support staff.

It was the second charter teacher strike in the city this school year and only the third ever by charter teachers anywhere in the country.

Teachers in Denver also went on strike last week, carrying signs with slogans such as “You can’t put students first when you put teachers last.”

These strikes are only the most recent chapter in the wave of protests by educators, including last month’s walkout in Los Angeles, in which teachers won reductions in class size, an increase in support staff and an increase in pay.
