    Pertussis has been on the rise in Oregon since 2006 but we are seeing neither the high levels we experienced in
    2004-2005 nor Washington’s epidemic number of cases. A recent CD summary provides a review of pertussis
    data including who suffers the severe disease, vaccination protection and the most recent ACIP
    recommendations. http://1.usa.gov/CDSummaryPertussis

    There is a summary of pertussis in Washington State, as well as the most recent VPD activity in Oregon and
    surrounding states here: http://1.usa.gov/VPDactivity. We will soon add pertussis cases by county.

    In addition, information is available in Orpheus. Below are pertussis cases in Oregon for 2012 (156 cases) and
    the same timeframe in 2011 (84 cases). Counties with the highest activities are: Multnomah, Washington,
    Yamhill and Clatsop. Please keep in mind that we have enhanced the pertussis surveillance in the metro area.
    Yamhill and Clatsop are both having pertussis outbreaks right now.




    We have also attached a page of pertussis messages for you to use when talking to the media or public.

        NEWS RELEASE                                           Nework Access Made Easy and Secure
                                                                                                            Release: April 2012
                                                                                                                     Page 1/2


        Network Access Made Easy and Secure with the New SIPRNet Hardware
        Token
        Are you tired of managing complex usernames and passwords for access on the
        Secret Internet Protocol Router Network (SIPRNet)? The new SIPRNet hardware
        token makes logon to the SIPRNet as easy as logon to the Non-classified
        Internet Protocol Router Network (NIPRNet).

        Air Force members from select units and combatant commands are already
        using the new tokens (smart cards). The rest of the Air Force will begin receiving
        and using tokens in early to mid CY 2012 timeframe. Per DoD directive, SIPRNet
        hardware tokens will be deployed Air Force-wide by December 2012.


        What is a SIPRNet hardware token? The SIPRNet hardware token is a separate and distinct card from a
        Common Access Card (CAC) and Alternate Logon Token, and cannot be used as an ID card. It leverages
                                Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) certificates to make the way you work on the
                                SIPRNet as convenient as conducting business on the NIPRNet. For example,
                                the SIPRNet hardware token gives you the ability to:
                                    •     Log on to SIPRNet with the token and a Personal Identification
                                          Number (PIN)
                                    •     Authenticate to restricted Web sites
                                    •     Digitally sign and encrypt SIPRNet e-mail

        Am I eligible for a SIPRNet hardware token? The SIPRNet hardware token is only issued to users with a
        valid account on the SIPRNet and an active “smil.mil” e-mail address.

        Where can I get a SIPRNet hardware token The SIPRNet hardware token will be issued by your National
        Security Systems (NSS)-certified Local Registration Authority (LRA). SIPRNet hardware tokens will not be
        available from DEERS/RAPIDS stations, where CACs are issued. Find your designated NSS-credentialed

      How do I use the SIPRNet hardware token? Once your network and
      workstation are enabled, use of the SIPRNet hardware token is similar to use
      of the CAC on unclassified networks. Simply insert it into the designated card
      reader (similar to the one pictured at the right) installed on your SIPRNet
      workstation and enter your SIPRNet hardware token PIN. The SIPRNet
      hardware token contains three PKI certificates, which allow it to operate like
      the CAC: the Identity certificate, the E-mail Signing certificate, and the E-mail
      Encryption certificate.

      Is the SIPRNet hardware token a classified item? Yes and no. The SIPRNet
      hardware token architecture is uniquely designed to be classified ONLY when it is inserted into a
      SIPRNet card reader attached to a SIPRNet workstation (pictured right), AND when the user has
      unlocked it with the associated PIN. The PIN is referred to as activation data. The token, therefore, is
      classified only when the hardware and software come together in concert with activation data. As a
      result, the SIPRNet hardware token is UNCLASSIFIED when removed from the card reader. This allows
      you to securely carry your SIPRNet hardware token from location to location without special
      requirements.

      Do I have any responsibilities with the SIPRNET hardware token? The token is considered a high-value,
      unclassified item and should be maintained in your possession at all times. All Air Force members
      operating in both classified and unclassified environments must also take caution and ensure use of the
      correct smart card for the correct environment. Introduction of the SIPRNet token into unclassified
      environments is not authorized. Likewise, introduction of unclassified tokens into the SIPRNet
      environment is not authorized. If the SIPRNet token is accidently inserted into a card reader connected
      to a NIPRNet workstation, do not enter the PIN; remove it immediately. Entering the PIN will require the
      token to be returned to an LRA for certificate revocation and token reformatting. If a CAC or Alternate
      Logon Token (ALT) is accidently inserted into a card reader connected to a SIPRNet workstation, do not
      enter the PIN; remove it immediately. With domain aware middleware properly configured, insertion of
      a NIPRNet token into the SIPRNet is not a security violation whether the PIN is entered or not. Ref:
      CNSS-014-2011 and clarification memos dated 28 March 2011 and 17 November 2011.

      The Air Force Public Key Infrastructure System Program Office (AF PKI SPO), part of the Cryptologic
      Systems Division at Lackland Air Force Base, is spearheading SIPRNet token test, evaluation, and fielding
      activities for the Air Force. For additional details, visit the AF PKI SPO Web Site:

    following mandatory Conditions of Employment for the position. If an employee cannot meet the
    requirements imposed by the agency, the employee will be removed from federal service. The
    Conditions of Employment are as follows:




    You must successfully complete two sessions of intensive basic training that may be conducted
    either on or off Project property. The training provides the employee with defensive tactic skills
    and knowledge in order to protect government property, employees and visitors on project
    lands, and fellow security team members; hand gun and rifle training and qualification; hand-to-
    hand combat training; and planning and preparing appropriate reactions to a variety of situations
    in a fighting environment. These sessions and subjects require mental and physical proficiency.
    Each session builds on the previous instruction, and periodic tests are administered throughout
    the sessions. Each test must be passed to continue to the next phase of training, and failure to
    satisfactorily complete a training session will lead to removal from federal service. The above
    mentioned tests include both classroom instruction and a personal demonstration of his/her
    proficiency in the material taught, which includes at a minimum, demonstration of various falls,
    maneuvers and techniques of defensive tactics, including manual manipulation of various tools;
    i.e., expandable batons, loading, unloading and clearing malfunctions in rifles, pistols and
    shotguns. Firearms proficiency is demonstrated by attaining a certain score in a live fire
    qualification environment, both day and night, and by performance in individual and team
    tactics.




    Annual Physical Training Requirements: At the end of the first year of employment and every
    year thereafter, you will be required to successfully pass all segments of the Employment PT
    test, see requirements listed above. If you do not initially pass any part of the annual test, you
    will be given 30 additional days to successfully pass all segments of the test. If you cannot pass
    any part of the test during the annual test, you will be removed from federal service.




                                                                                           Continued on next page

       Public Trust Background Investigation. You must successfully undergo a BI Public Trust
       background investigation. If you are found to be unsuitable for the position, either initially or
       upon the reinvestigation, you will be removed from your position.




       The position requires you to carry a firearm. In order to be able to meet that requirement, the
       Lautenberg Amendment requires that you may not have any convictions of domestic violence
       and you will be required to certify that you have no convictions. This information will be verified
       through the Public Trust Background Investigation (see previous paragraph for further
       information).




       Firearm Proficiency. Upon completion of the intensive basic training, you must meet
       marksmanship standards. In addition, you must successfully pass the annual firearms proficiency
       test. If you fail to demonstrate firearm proficiency initially or upon re certification, you will be
       removed from your position.

       because you are required to drive government vehicles on government and public roads. If you
       fail to maintain a valid State Driver's License at all times, you will be removed from your
       position.

       Hello! Below is the weekly Financial Frontline Information for 4 May 2012. This information is to  financial Frontline

       provide you- the soldier, airman, veteran, retiree, family member or supporter of our armed forces
       financial readiness information. It does not replace the advice of your chain of command, your legal
       counsel or financial consultant. It does however, supplement, issues the National Guard Bureau finds
       important. Just so you know up front, I am not an attorney, a CPA, a financial planner or work for the
       IRS. If you have questions that are outside of my expertise, I do refer them to the appropriate person.

       Did you know?
       On this day May 4, 1965, San Francisco Giants outfielder Willie Mays hits his 512th career home run to
       break Mel Ott’s National League record for home runs. Mays would finish his career with 660 home
       runs, good for third on the all-time list at the time of his retirement.

       Willie Howard Mays was born May 6, 1931, in Westfield, Alabama. The "Say Hey Kid" learned baseball
       from his father, who played semi-professionally with a team from his steel mill. Willie joined the steel
       mill team at age 14, and then began his professional career at 16 with the Birmingham Black Barons
       of the Negro Southern League. He played home games for the Barons from 1948 to 1950, skipping
       road trips during the school year so he could attend high school. Upon graduation he was signed by
       the New York Giants, and made his debut at the Polo Grounds on May 25, 1951. Mays went hitless in
       his first 12 at-bats, hitting his first big league homer in his 13th. That season, he was named Rookie
       of the Year and helped the Giants to the National League pennant.

       In 1952, Mays was drafted into the Army. The Mays-less Giants barely missed the pennant in 1952,
       then felt his absence more acutely in 1953, when they finished the season with a 70-84 record. Upon
       his return in 1954, the Giants defeated the Cleveland Indians to win the World Series, during which
       Mays made what many fans consider to be the greatest catch in history. In Game 1, Indian first
       baseman Vic Wertz hit a fly ball to deep center field. Mays turned and ran, then caught the ball over
       his shoulder with his back to the infield, spinning and firing the ball back into the infield to keep the
       runners from advancing. When he was later asked about the play, Mays famously replied, "I don’t
       rank ‘em, I just catch ‘em."

       In addition to winning the National League MVP in 1954 and 1965, Mays played in a record 24 All-Star
       games, winning the All-Star MVP in 1963 and 1968. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in
       1979. His base running, power, fielding, ability to hit for average and outstanding arm in the outfield
       made him the prototype "five-tool" player for whom baseball scouts search. Any argument over who
       deserves the title "greatest baseball player in history" has to include Willie Mays.

       Mothers Day..

       Here it comes, Mother's Day, the second biggest gifting holiday on the calendar behind Christmas.
       This year, we are expected to stretch our already stretched out budget even further to show Mom
       some love.

       Do you know that total spending across the USA should reach 18.6 billion dollars? That would equal
       each of us spending an average of $152 on Mother's day gifts.

       Now is a good time to start looking for unique ways to celebrate Mom's day without breaking the
       bank. Most people will spoil mom with the special home cooked meals, clothing she doesn't want,
       electronics, and fancy flowers. Flowers and dining out are two of the more popular ways to celebrate;
       but two thirds buying flowers and more than half going out to dinner or brunch. Nearly one third will
       treat mom to an ugly sweater or blouse while only 13 percent of us will buy her the IPAD she really
       wants.




                                                                                           Continued on next page
Return to Page 1                                         45
       The biggest difference between this year and last is that fewer of us expect to purchase electronics.
       Last year was a "high tech year". This year, us shoppers are going for more of a traditional gift like,
       cards, brunch, flowers, jewelry and clothing. No matter how much you love Mom, there is only so
       many computers, e-readers and MP3 plays a person can have. What's strange is forecasters are
       predicting big increases in the sales of jewelry and clothing.

       But gift-givers may want to think hard about what they buy Mom. Harris Interactive recently polled
       2,199 adults, and found that about third of mothers said they only pretended to like their Mother's
       Day gifts. Nearly two in three people in that survey said they wanted a "meaningful" gift. However,
       definitions of what constitutes a "meaningful" gift can vary on who you talk to. Meaningful to you may
       mean that hand print in concrete your 5 year old does in pre-school. My meaningful gift is the words
       "Mom, I will pay for my student loan now". Wishful thinking...

       Another huge item this year is expected to be chocolate. And who doesn't like chocolate? Just think
       about it chocolate covered strawberries or some fancy Godiva. This is making my mouth water. If
       you're like me though; you'll find yourself in what use to be a Marshall Fields. They had the BEST
       candy ever- the Frango Mint. Seriously. I could like bath in the stuff. I just can't get enough.
       However, by doing so, the next gift I will be asking for is a gym membership as I will have those love
       handles to get rid of and have more chins than the phone book in San Francisco. One thought about
       chocolate for your Mom though; the Chocolate based spa packages. As I just said, I could bath in
       Frango Mints. However, there is nothing glamorous about your mom in a chocolate bath at the local
       spa. You may want to reconsider the chocolate theme.

       Mom likes to garden? Well, women tend to age more rapidly than men. Us women, we just get old.
       Men get wiser and more attractive with age. Yes, I had my EEO class and I'm not calling you old; it's
       just a known fact. I'm a woman and I look at the men in my office. Well, wait, let's choose another
       office. I look at men - Soldiers and Airmen, and think minus their screwed up gig line they are aging
       well. Sorry for my tangent. Back on gardening. If Mom likes to garden, there are always knee pads
       for her aching knees. They come in all sorts of colors too. Plus there are always garden gloves, flower
       seeds, a little shovel and maybe a new hose. Just be careful buying seeds from the dollar stores.
       They have an expiration date and make sure you check on them.

       If your Mom still drives, most in these hard economic times would LOVE a gas card or a car wash.
       Yes, it's not that sentimental, but it's practical.

       Another fine gift to give Mom is a home cooked meal. Yes, no standing in line or hurrying to make that
       brunch reservation. Invite Mom over and cook her favorite meal. It's a lot less expensive than going
       to your local restaurant.

       If your Mom is ill, don't think she cannot appreciate a card, or time spent with her. My Mom was in
       hospice in 2010 over Christmas. I still bought her a gift (a silver cross). When she looked at me like
       what am I supposed to do with this? I said, it's a gift you can take with you. Needless to say, she
       wore it when she left just 5 days later, and I didn't have the guilt trip of everyone else opening up a
       gift and Mom just sitting there. It's the little things in life that make the most impact.

       As you can see, for those of you that are still procrastinating; Mothers Day is 13 May. So instead of
       waiting till the last minute to pick up that sweater or box of pharmacy chocolates, with a proper
       budget and planning you and yours can celebrate Mother's Day without breaking the bank.

      You're in good hands...

      There is something we here at the National Guard Bureau do not get; YouTube. I guess they feel the
      moral would improve to an enormous extent if we were to listen to music or watch an occasional flick,
      especially when we want to watch the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, GEN Dempsey. Yes, he
      has YouTube. But I wanted to reference a rather humorous car commercial on You Tube. I believe
      they are out of New Jersey somewhere and several years old (and for all you legal types, NO, I'm not
      endorsing them, they are just rather funny). It's about a trunk monkey that comes with a purchase a
      new vehicle. When you watch these 30 or so seconds on YouTube; you'll notice all sorts of things
      happen that require one thing - Insurance. I can reference workers compensation insurance, Defense
      Base Act insurance, but the very thing that we (or majority) pay for, most of us are clueless what the
      terms mean. Bodily injury? What's that? Not knowing can make your very bad day even worse.
      Financially, you would end up a wreck.

      Insurance is very confusing, and if you don't understand what the different types of coverage mean,
      you could be leaving yourself financially exposed. I always tell people to get as much insurance as you
      can afford, to make sure you are covered for anything that comes along. If you get in even the
      smallest of wrecks and damage your front right quarter panel, and take out a fancy sealed beam
      headlight, that repair could cost over $1000, and over one week in car rental fees. So choosing the
      right coverage is essential. If you finance a car through a bank or car dealer, the lender usually
      requires some sort of full coverage. They do verify it with the insurance company and if you fall short
      of their limits or take out no coverage at all, they will buy it for you and send you a bill for an
      unbelievably jacked up amount for insurance. This could be up to $4000, nearly 3 times the normal
      amount that most of us pay, so make sure your car is insured. Most car dealers won't allow the car to
      be driven off the lot without calling it into the insurance company and setting it up first. Your current
      insurance may cover you, but you must tell your insurance company immediately that you bought a
      new car to ensure you have coverage. Here's a list of the common types of coverage:

      Bodily Injury and Liability Insurance - This insurance protects you from claims made against you
      which you are obligated to pay if you cause bodily injury to someone in a crash. This also covers your
      defense costs. Bodily Injury Liability limits usually specify 2 dollar amounts, the first amount limiting
      payments to a single person per accident and the second amount puts a cap on the total amount of
      payment for all persons injured per accident.

      Collision Insurance - Collision coverage pays for the damage to your vehicle by collision with another
      vehicle or fixed objects like trees, signs, buildings, etc. This coverage is what gets invoked when the
      accident is your fault.




                                                                                              Continued on next page
Return to Page 1                                           47
      Comprehensive Coverage Insurance - This is your "fire and theft coverage, and covers damage to your
      car for anything other than a wreck, like tornados, floods, vandalism, theft, hitting a deer, etc.

      Car Rental - If your vehicle is in the shop for more than a day for repairs resulting from an insurance
      claim, Many policies with this coverage will pay $15 or more per day for usually up to 30 days, or
      some maximum value to rent a car while you wait for repairs. Higher limits are available.

      Full Glass - In many states, there is no deductible on windshields, because it's against state law to
      drive with a damaged windshield. But for the rest of your windows, you still have to pay your
      comprehensive deductible before they'll pay for any broken glass. You can pay more for Full Glass
      coverage to eliminate any deductibles for broken glass. Some companies give you full glass at no
      extra charge as a selling feature.

      Medical Coverage - Covers medical expenses from your crash injuries and covered persons in your
      car, no matter who was at fault.

      No-Fault, Personal Injury Protection (PIP) - In most no-fault states, PIP covers medical and rehab,
      work loss, funerals, and other expenses incurred by you, your family, passengers in your vehicle, and
      pedestrians injured by your vehicle. Not every state has this coverage, and it pays for damages
      regardless of who is at fault in the accident. That's why they call it no-fault. Wonder who the brain
      child was in that inception.

      Liability Coverage - Similar to Bodily Injury coverage. Liability covers only the damage caused by you
      to someone's property, car, fence, lawn, telephone pole, house, etc. When you are at fault in a wreck,
      this coverage is invoked when the other driver makes a claim against your insurance to repair their
      car.

      Towing - If your car breaks down, this coverage will pay for a tow truck or roadside assistance to get
      your car going again. This usually pays about $50-$75.

      Underinsured or Uninsured Motorist - One of my personal favorites. I think EVERYONE should have
      this coverage, because it protects us from all the loser morons out there who refuse to insure their
      cars. Here in metro DC, uninsured drivers is worse than a problem, it's a plague. I know so many
      people who got burnt royally because of uninsured drivers. In Virginia you have to show proof of
      insurance to renew your tags. But many people just take out a policy, send in proof to the state, then
      let the policy lapse after a month, and then the policy gets canceled. If I was Queen, the insurance
      companies would notify the state, who would then send a tow truck to impound these cars, and they
      don't get them back until they renew the insurance, and pay the towing fees on top of that.
      Underinsured Motorist pays for your injuries up to the policy limit when the other driver either has no
      insurance, or their lame coverage can't pay for you injuries or property damage. This coverage usually
      includes hit and run drivers as well.

      Then there is SR 22 insurance. If you have it, you know how EXPENSIVE it is and realize that you
      need to change your habits.

      So as you can see, auto insurance can make or break you.

      Respectfully,
