White City shooting range fire under control
By KTVL Staff/KTVL.com

Monday afternoon, fire officials responded to a grass fire in White City near the Jackson County Outdoor Shooting range.

The fire, which is just under four acres, is 100 percent contained.

Dry terrain made fighting this fire difficult, according to officials. Helicopters are still dropping water on hot spots.

No report on what caused the fire.

Union sues feds over hack, says agency had ample warning
WASHINGTON (AP) — The largest federal employee union filed a class action lawsuit Monday against the federal personnel office, its leaders and one of its contractors, arguing that negligence contributed to what government officials are calling one of the most damaging cyberthefts in U.S. history.

The suit by the American Federation of Government Employees names the Office of Personnel Management, its director, Katherine Archuleta, and its chief information officer, Donna Seymour. It also names Keypoint Government Solutions, an OPM contractor.

Hackers suspected of working for the Chinese government are believed to have stolen records for as many as 18 million current and former federal employees and contractors last year. Detailed background investigations for security clearances of military and intelligence agency employees were among the documents taken.

OPM acknowledged the hack earlier this month, and has come under withering criticism from lawmakers and outside experts ever since. The agency's inspector general told Congress he had been warning for years that the agency's information security was inadequate but those warnings went largely unheeded.

The lawsuit alleges that OPM was negligent when it failed to improve its security and safeguard employee information despite the warnings. The suit says an earlier hack of Keypoint systems allowed the attackers to obtain credentials that led to the later breaches.

"Since 2007, officials at OPM have been alerted to their lackluster data security policies and protocols and failed to take appropriate steps to safeguard the information," AFGE National President J. David Cox Sr. and other union officials said in a joint statement. "Although they were forewarned about the potential catastrophe that government employees faced, OPM's data security got worse rather than better."

The suit seeks unspecified monetary damages and calls for more extensive credit monitoring for employees who had their personal information stolen, saying the 18 months of monitoring offered by OPM is inadequate.

"We want the OPM and other responsible parties to take responsibility, do everything feasible to remedy the problem and ensure that our clients do not suffer any further harm as a result of their information being compromised," said Daniel Gerard, the lawyer representing the union.
OPM and Keypoint did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The suit came on the same day that OPM said it has shut down a massive database used to update and store background investigation records after discovering a new flaw that left the system vulnerable to additional breaches.

The database is known as e-QIP, short for Electronic Questionnaires for Investigations Processing.

There is no evidence the vulnerability has been exploited by hackers, agency spokesman Samuel Schumach said in a statement, adding that OPM took the step protectively after analyzing its networks for security flaws. He said the system could be shut down for four to six weeks.

The shutdown is expected to hamper agencies' ability to initiate investigations for new employees and contractors, as well as renewal investigations for security clearances, Schumach said.

But, he added, the federal government will still be able to hire, and in some cases grant clearances on an interim basis.

Two arrested in connection to armed robbery
By KTVL Staff/KTVL.com

Mount Shasta, Cal.- Monday morning, two suspects were taken into custody by a Siskiyou County Sheriff’s deputy without incident in a parking lot near Mount Shasta Resort in connection to a Shastina Mini Mart armed robbery over the weekend. 
Anthony Parsons, 25, was taken into custody along with his female companion.  The female suspect’s name is being withheld at this time due to her status as a juvenile.  
According to police, the suspects allegedly robbed the Shastina Mini Mart at gunpoint and one of the assailants also had a knife.  The pick-up the male suspect was operating at the time of arrest was reportedly stolen from Idaho.  
Parsons will be booked for numerous charges, including armed robbery, theft, burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, weapons-related charges, and auto theft.  The juvenile suspect will be confined at the Charlie Byrd Juvenile Youth Correction Center on similar charges, according to a press release.
According to Lieutenant Mark Hilsenberg, the investigation involving the armed robbery is still under investigation.

California Legislature passes strict school vaccine bill
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- California lawmakers have passed a contentious bill that would impose one of the strictest school vaccination laws in the country after a series of emotionally charged debates.

The Senate on Monday reaffirmed the bill striking California's personal belief exemption for immunizations on a 24-14 vote.

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown has not said if he would sign it.   

California's proposal is intended to boost vaccination rates after a measles outbreak at Disneyland last year. The measure would only allow children with serious health problems to opt out of school-mandated vaccinations.  
It has prompted the most heated legislative debate of the year with thousands of opponents taking to social media and protesting legislative hearings.

If the bill becomes law, California would join Mississippi and West Virginia as the only states with such strict requirements.

Bulletin Warns Of Heightened Threat Of ISIS Attack On July 4th
The FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued a joint bulletin alerting authorities to the “heightened threat of attack by ISIL and its supporters” ahead of the Fourth of July holiday and this summer in general.

The bulletin, issued Friday, is titled “Holiday Celebrations Remain Attractive Target” and was sent to 18,000 law enforcement agencies around the country.

The document warns that that Independence Day celebrations and any activity which appears to defame the prophet Mohammed will “likely result in threats or plans to conduct violent extremist acts.” 

FBI, DHS and National Counterterrorism Center officials "remain concerned about the difficulty in detecting violent extremists—especially lone offenders given the individualized nature of radicalization to violence,” the document states.

Syrian based ISIS members have been pressing through social media for adherents to carry out attacks wherever they are. The bulletin warns that attacks by “U.S. based ISIL supporters could happen with little to no warning.”

The document also cautions the U.S. government and military personnel to be mindful of their social media presence and any personal postings which could “attract violent extremists’ attention."

The bulletin comes after an attack by an ISIS supporter on a resort last Friday in Tunisia left 38 dead, many of them European tourists.

Man who shot child through floor faces gun-dealing charges
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A southern Oregon man who killed a little girl in a burst of gunfire while using an assault-style rifle to get up from a couch now faces federal firearms charges alleging he lied on background checks to buy dozens of automatic handguns.

Court records say Jon A. Meyer of Grants Pass was in federal court in Medford last week on 10 counts alleging he conspired with two other people to buy 24 pistols. Two of them were recovered from crime scenes in Northern California.

Not guilty pleas were entered on his behalf and his trial is scheduled for September.

He is serving six years in prison for manslaughter in the 2013 death of 5-year-old Alysa Bobbitt in a Grants Pass apartment.
