Congresswoman Shea-Porter: "This Thanksgiving, let us give thanks to those who have given the most."

Today, with Thanksgiving approaching, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter released the following statement in recognition of Military Family Appreciation Week.

 

“Every holiday season, family and friends around the country come together to give thanks for what they have received. However, many military families will be apart this Thanksgiving. We must remember those who have given so much to our country and honor their service by keeping the promises we have made to them. Our active duty military members, veterans, and their families deserve our thanks this and every Thanksgiving. They work every day to keep us safe and to protect our freedoms.”

 

For more information on services available tomilitary families please visit shea-porter.house.gov. As a former military spouse and as a Member of the House Armed Services Committee, where she sits on the Military Personnel and Readiness Subcommittees, Congresswoman Shea-Porter understands the sacrifices of those who choose to serve. That is why she has advocated for in-state health care for New Hampshire's veterans, for better health care and education benefits for our troops, and for better pay for military families.

DHHS Confirms First Influenza Case of 2008-09 Flu Season

Concord, NH – The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has identified the first case of influenza in New Hampshire for the 2008-09 influenza season. The Public Health Laboratories confirmed the case in an adult from Grafton County. The timing of this first case is earlier than last year when the first case was reported December 11.

 

“We knew it was only a matter of time before the flu arrived here in New Hampshire,” stated DHHS Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas. “Now that we know it’s here, we hope this serves as a reminder to everyone who has not yet been vaccinated to do so. It’s the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones against the flu this winter season.”

 

To date DHHS’s Immunization Program has distributed 103,640 doses of flu vaccine to medical providers around the State for children 18 and younger as part of the Vaccines for Children Program. People are encouraged to ask their health care provider for the flu vaccine. Influenza is highly contagious. It spreads from person to person through the air by coughing or sneezing. It can also be spread by direct contact with an infected person. Flu symptoms usually begin one to four days after being exposed to the virus.

 

“This is a sign of the season,” said Director of Public Health Dr Jose Montero. “We’d like to encourage residents to take the time now to get vaccinated. Flu activity typically peaks in January so there is still plenty of time to protect yourself and your family, and there is plenty of vaccine available.”

 

Practicing good hygiene is also a critical step in guarding against influenza and other illnesses this winter. Washing your hands often, getting plenty of rest, coughing into your sleeve, and staying home when you are sick are all simple common sense steps to help stay healthy.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the following groups be immunized each year:

 

Children aged 6 months up to their 19th birthday

Pregnant women

People 50 years of age and older

People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions

People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities

 

People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu, including:

 

Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu

 

For more information about the flu or flu vaccine contact the NH Immunization Program at 271-4482 or the Communicable Disease Surveillance Section at 271-0279. You can also visit the CDC website, www.cdc.gov/flu and www.dhhs.nh.gov for regular updates of the latest flu conditions in New Hampshire and nationally.

Nat GOP Trust PAC - Emergency Thanksgiving Stop Obama in Ga. Effort

The holidays have arrived but we can't take a rest!

 

As you know the special election in Georgia is set for Tuesday, December 2nd. It's just days away.

 

At stake is whether Barack Obama will have complete control over the U.S. Senate and Congress.

 

The urgency of our work is revealed by a new Politico-Insider Advantage poll.

 

It shows Republican Saxby Chambliss ahead by just 3 percentage points against his Democratic challenger Jim Martin.

 

This is within the poll's 4 point margin of error!

 

Democratic strategists have openly claimed they can win this election in Georgia with their superior voter turn-out efforts.

 

We at the National Republican Trust PAC are finalizing our emergency TV ad buys in key markets around Georgia.

 

We have already allocated more than $750,000 to stop Barack Obama from winning this seat.

 

But we cannot take a break during the holiday. We need to raise $250,000 more.

 

I assure you that Obama and Democratic activists are working overtime this holiday to defeat Saxby Chambliss.

 

Please help us today in this emergency effort— Go Here Now

 

Thank you again and wishing you and yours a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

 

Yours for America,

Scott Wheeler
Executive Director

 

P.S. Democratic strategist Donna Brazile is helping Jim Martin. She revealed they have asked Barack Obama to stay out of Georgia. This confirms our view that Georgia doesn't want Obama to have full control of the Senate. This is our message in TV ads blanketing Georgia. We need to keep getting this message out. Please help us by calling our Donor Hotline at 1-866-957-1467 or Go Here Now.
