OF THE WEEK:
Rental Owners Association of Southwestern Oregon
Desiree Gaoiran, Staff
Laurie Moore, President of the Rental Owners Association
of Southwestern Oregon (ROA) and Joyce Edwards, affiliate and past
newsletter writer, are devoted to growing this very essential service
provided to landlords and property management companies in our area.
Laurie has been affiliated with the organization for over 2 years and
Joyce has been heavily involved since 1984. Recently, the association
has undergone many changes and they are continuing to strive to meet
the needs of their current 200 members.
In 1978, the home builders association and landlords
began meeting at the City Hall. The home builders wanted their own
association and then in 1980, Hans Louvring and Ed Carlson, began the
formation of what is now Rental Owners Association of Southwestern
Oregon. The first officers of the association were elected in 1981 and
it has continued to grow ever since. READ

Profitable Genetic Selection: How the National Sheep Improvement Program Can Help the US Sheep and Goat Industry
The webinar will be scheduled for Tue, Dec 17, 2013 4:00
PM - 5:15 PM PT, with presenter: Dr. Reid Redden, Extension Sheep
Specialist and NSIP Chairman, North Dakota State University and hosted
by Dr. Jay Parsons, Colorado State University & Optimal Ag
Two Options for Viewing:
1) Join Elissa Wells at the Coos County/OSU Extension
Service conference room, 631 Alder St in Myrtle Point or Shelby Filley

2) Contact the organizers directly and view on your own computer. https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3280183289165496321.
The National Sheep Improvement Program (NSIP) is a
nonprofit organization created to develop genetic predictors for
production traits relevant to the US sheep and goat industries. This
technology generates estimate breeding values (EBVs) based on
performance data that is submitted by participating flocks. This
program develops EBVs for: 1) Growth Traits: birth, weaning (60 d),
postweaning (120 d), and yearling (365 d) weights; 2) Reproductive
Traits: number of lambs born and weaned; 3) Carcass Traits: loin muscle
and backfat depth; 4) Wool Traits: fleece weight, fiber diameter, and
staple length; 5) Parasite Resistance: weaning fecal egg count. In
addition, indexes are created that rank the most important traits for
the respective breed. EBVs are calculated by making comparisons of
lambs among their flock mates; therefore, lambs that outperform their
flock mates get positive values for the particular trait and
genetically related traits. Additionally, sire and dam EBVs increase
for production of a lamb that is above or below flock average (progeny
test). To better serve the entire industry, NSIP needs more seedstock
producers to enroll, use the program to its full capacity, and work
with other NSIP breeders to develop genetic connections within the
breed. Additionally, it requires that commercial producers request that
their seedstock providers provide this data and purchase sheep with
EBVs that are consistent with the needs of the flock. In summary, NSIP
can help the industry make more informed and reliable breeding
decisions and lead to more productive and profitable sheep and goat

"Out Our Back Door"
Partners with Cover Oregon
Contributed By: Stephanie Polizzi, MPH, RD, CHES, Faculty and Regional
Health Education Coordinator - OSU Extension Family & Community
OSU Extension is making efforts to help you
your fear about the mandatory health insurance enrollment by partnering
with Cover Oregon. Cover Oregon is your portal, your one-stop shopping
market place, where you can shop for health insurance and enroll in the
plan that’s right for you and your family. Even if you
have health insurance, Cover Oregon can help you determine if you need
additional coverage or if you are eligible to receive a tax credit. OSU
Extension will provide materials and resources that will help you
access the on-line system or to get the technical assistance you
require to enroll in health insurance plans.
Who can use Cover Oregon? All Oregonians
access and use Cover Oregon. This includes those who don’t
currently have insurance, those who do have insurance but want to
change, add or reduce coverage, and those who need to provide insurance
to their employees. Even those who have previously been turned down for
health insurance due to a pre-existing condition will find options for
coverage through Cover Oregon. Of course, if you prefer to buy health
insurance directly from insurance companies, you are free to do so
without using Cover Oregon.
What services does Cover Oregon provide? To start
Cover Oregon helps you determine your eligibility for no-cost insurance
benefits, or to identify those who are eligible for reduced fees or tax
credits. It allows you to make side-by-side comparisons of different
insurance plans, detailing benefits and costs so you can choose the
best plan that suits your needs. Coverage plans not only include
doctors’ visits, hospitalizations, emergency care and
prescriptions, but vision and dental options.
Most importantly, Cover Oregon is the only place
you can access financial help to pay for health insurance.
To help you select your coverage, Cover Oregon has
provided a combination of assistance avenues including certified
agents, community partners and direct Cover Oregon customer service.
These are insurance companies who can help
clients determine which health insurance is right for their
family’s needs. Only agents with an Oregon health license and
attend a 2-day training can be affiliated with Cover Oregon. Agents can
assist individuals and small businesses with determining eligibility
for insurance plans and filter through the different options for
coverage. Agents help you make the right decisions in choosing the
appropriate health care plan.
Cover Oregon is partnering with Oregon Health
to provide local outreach and application assistance. Partners are
trained in assisting individuals and families in navigating the
enrollment system, and linking users to the tools they need to enroll.
Partners enter into a formal contract agreement to provide individuals
and families with the on-line enrollment process. Keep in mind that
partners are not trained to instruct individuals or families as to
which insurance is right or appropriate, but only to assist you in
navigating the on-line system.
OSU Extension is a community partner
providing public education and outreach. We provide links to local
application assistance through community partners and Cover Oregon
resources in your community. Keep in mind, OSU Extension does not
provided enrollment assistance.
Cover Oregon Customer Service Available 7 am to 7
you may access personalized assistance through this toll-free number:
1-855-CoverOR (1-855-268-3767). Service is available in English and
Spanish but other language interpreters are available on request.

March 31, 2014. This is an extended enrollment period to allow all
Oregonians time to enroll. Coverage begins January 1, 2014. Tribal
members do not have an enrollment period and can move within the system
year round. Keep in mind, next year, enrollment will run only October
By logging on to
you can access reading materials and community partner assistance,
contact a representative or begin the enrollment process. If you do not
have access to a computer, you can still enroll with written forms, but
community partners can walk you through the expediting on-line system
at libraries, schools, or other venues with public use computers. You
have nothing to fear. Cover Oregon, OSU Extension and many Community
Partners are here to help you get the proper health insurance coverage
and peace of mind.

With the Affordable Care Act in place, OSU Extension
