Q: The OPM office sent out an email to those millions of federal employees who may have been affected by cybersecurity incident involving the OPM database. The email consists of a link to www.csid.com/OPM/ for employees to enroll in Protector Plus, a company that specializes in identity theft protection and fraud resolution. However, this site is blocked and not accessible through our government computers because of the category of the site.
Q: Is there any reason that the far left lane heading out the South Gate remains a left-turn-only lane even after the barricade has been removed? It would seem that this lane can be used as a through lane for vehicles exiting the gate. Instead, vehicles on this lane who want to make a left onto SR 193 must first change into middle lane and then come back into the left lane once they pass the guard shack. Seems like an inefficient use of the lane. They may as well have left the barricade on this lane.

HILL AIR FORCE BASE — It’s hot out there — not only for humans, but for animals as well, so when you’re looking for ways to beat the heat, don’t forget to keep your furry friends in mind, too.
HILL AIR FORCE BASE — It’s easy for chaplains to focus on spiritual matters since it’s their career, but chaplains at Hill Air Force Base are taking things to another level by incorporating physical workouts into their focus each week — and in the process, they’re discovering far-reaching benefits.
Hill AFB’s Airmen Against Drunk Driving, or AADD, program hosted a simulated drunk obstacle course June 26 at the Warrior Fitness Center.
The event aimed to increase awareness of the base’s AADD program, which offers Airmen a free ride home if they’ve had too much to drink. Participants were challenged to navigate through obstacles while wearing “impairment goggles” that simulate inebriation.

I cannot believe it has been nearly 27 years since the start of this journey. While it has not always been smooth traveling, it has never been boring. Throughout these past years I have had many mentors, critics, bosses, friends and family hold my hand, listen to me rant and rave, and give me honest feedback. Sometimes I took their advice, sometimes they took mine, but through it all, we did everything we could to take care of the people. There were times we cried together over loss or frustration; there were times we sang and danced, acting like fools, but like family we took care of one another.
