Saturday, Nov. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 3By Mig Owens Assistant editorFor Tim O’Rourke and Mark Sevars, identity theft is more than an alarming headline or television expos – it is real. “It’s a very helpless feeling to think that someone can get into your personal life so easily,” said Sevars, who just happened to check his bank account one day in September to nd it had been wiped out. Sevars, a Kwajalein resident of ve years, explained that, though he is not sure it would be categorized as identity theft, somehow someone got a hold of his bank account and pin number and over the course of two days proceeded to wipe out his account. “After extensive investigation by the bank and credit card company, the only thing they think could have happened was that my information was taken from my card when I used an ATM [automatic teller machine] while on vacation,” he said. Sevars was eventually reimbursed for most of the money, amounting to a little over $2,000, though he said, “with the time spent explaining to creditors, plus the money that I couldn’t get back, my out of pocket was around $500.” Still feeling the effects of what he describes as a violation, Sevars has had to change all of his banking and credit transactions and says he’s still working on getting it all straightened out. “I now think very hard about buying anything online or using ATMs while on vacation,” he stated. “I think the main thing to remember is that this isn’t something that you read about that happens to someone else far away, it can happen to anyone, anywhere at any given time.” For O’Rourke, who has lived on Kwajalein for a year and a half, identity theft struck sometime within the past four months. “I was opening a new checking account online and my account information showed an Albuquerque, New Mexico address and a New Mexico driver’s license. I’m from Idaho,” he explained. phone over the last month, as well as online, working the issue. The incident, he said, changed the way he operates. “I don’t trust anything that my bank says without verifying it and I check my balances about twice a day.” Toward the person who caused O’Rourke’s pain, he said, “I’d like to kick my alter ego’s ass! I hope that guy in Albuquerque goes to jail and becomes some bad boy’s girlfriend.” O’Rourke’s advice to others is to place a block with the credit bureaus that forbids them from issuing your name on a list so that you stop receiving credit card offers that can be used by others. He also advises the use of to obtain a free credit report. Consumers may visit the Web site or call toll-free at 1877-322-8228.A thief in your pocket Identity theft hits home, Kwaj that is O’Rourke acted by visiting www.annualcreditrepo to obtain a copy of his credit report. The site enables all U.S. adults to request one free copy of their credit report from each of the nation’s three credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and Trans Union. He then placed a fraud alert with the credit bureau, which requires creditors to contact him personally before issuing new credit. “I also contacted the bank and corrected my address and driver’s license information and placed an alert on my accounts basically allowing me to deposit but no one can withdraw from my savings account until I come into my bank and personally lift the hold,” he said. “I contacted the Albuquerque Police Department four times but they have never responded.” O’Rourke believes he was lucky and must have caught things early because to date, no new credit has been opened and no money is missing. He said the situation cost him at least 30 hours on the


Saturday, Nov. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4 Christmas dropsYear-long planning brings holiday cheer By Mig Owens Assistant editorEach year, groups across Kwajalein gather donations and raise funds for outer-island Christmas drops. Preparations for this year’s drops are underway. The Christmas drops are supported by the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site in the form of transportation; some requiring airplanes, most boats. “The Christmas exchanges between the community on Kwajalein and the various communities are wonderful opportunities to interact with Marshallese and learn more about their culture,” Alan Taylor, Republic of the Marshall Islands relations specialist, said. “I am just the coordinator behind the scenes – the real work is done by the volunteers who spend their time, money and efforts in putting the material goods together to share with the communities in our atoll.”Carlos Christmas DropThe Carlos Christmas Drop is designed for high school students and their families and gives students the opportunity to conduct their own community service project, according to Co-chairs Peter Barbella and Rick Fullerton. The annual Turkey Bowl celebration officially kicks off the Christmas on Carlos project. This year’s event will be held Nov. 24 at the Corlett Recreation Center. Following the celebration, funds are raised through a drive at the school in which classes compete for a pizza party. Households may contribute via their child. The money is used to buy food, such as rice and canned meats, and amenities such as toys, games, combs, flip flops and goodie bags for the children. A carnival-like atmosphere is created the day of the Carlos visit, with an appearance by Santa and music courtesy of high school band members. Carlos residents reciprocate, according to Barbella, by singing and performing. (Photos by Mig Owens)


Saturday, Nov. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 5 In order to participate in the drop, students must perform a task in the preparation stage, such as packing, wrapping, counting money or participating in band. During the drop each student must also perform a job. Said Fullerton, “It’s a wonderful activity that allows for interaction at the grass-roots level. It’s a big day for [Carlos residents] too — they look forward to it.” This year’s Carlos Christmas Drop will take place Dec. 16. For more information on the drop, contact Barbella or Fullerton at 52011. Carlson Christmas DropKwajalein’s Christian Women’s Fellowship sponsors the Carlson Christmas Drop, which traditionally takes place in January to accommodate Carlson residents’ desire to visit family on other islands, such as Ebeye, for Christmas. Last year’s drop focused on providing the island’s 50 residents with items that help them maintain a level of self sufficiency. Those items included nine 29-gallon containers full of household goods, one for each family, 18 20-pound bags of rice, as well as clothing, toys, bedding, school supplies and sporting goods. Resident Kintha Michael said that “it was very kind” of CWF to collect and deliver the gifts, explaining that they would “enjoy clothes and shoes for fishing.” Michael and the other Carlson residents reciprocated with leis, song and food. Though the weather did not live up to expectations, Jane DeJoie, chairperson of the missions committee for CWF, said that “Being here with the people exceeded any expectations I had. It was wonderful to be with them and their warmth and generosity was evident.” The date for this year’s drop has not been confirmed. For information concerning the drop or to donate items, call DeJoie at 53704. Ebadon, Majetto DropA tradition since the early 1980s, the Yokwe Yuk Women’s Club Drop on Ebadon and Majetto is the longest-running of the outer-island Christmas drops. Preparations begin mid-summer for the drop as the group determines what items would be best for the islands’ 350 children. Last year, reusable nylon Marshall Islands tote bags were donated, which carried items such as soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste, sunglasses, books, school supplies, candy and fruit. Former YYWC President Cindy Stevison said, “We’d love to see each child get the basic hygiene items, a shirt, flip flops, and maybe a toy — basic needs plus a goody too.” The club also donates community gifts such as stock pots, sewing supplies, fishing gear, medical supplies and sports equipment. This is in addition to food donations of rice, Spam and fresh fruits. Unlike other drops, letters are sent by club members to stateside entities such as major corporations, schools, churches and private organizations, as well as to clubs and organizations on Kwajalein. The club’s own donations to the drop are made via fund-raising events such as bake sales and the giving tree. This year, YYWC will host a wine and cheese basket silent auction from 7 to 10 p.m. Nov. 13 at the See HOLIDAY, Page 6A child peers at herself on Santa’s lap — a moment captured on lm at the Enniburr Children’s Christmas Party.

For more information on the drop, contact Leigh Hoskins at 51494.Enniburr Children’s Christmas PartyApproximately 400 children under the age of 13 living on Enniburr receive the gift of Christmas joy on Roi-Namur each year thanks to the Enniburr Children’s Christmas Fund. It is the only drop in which children come to a USAKA-leased island as opposed to the drop participants going to the Marshallese community. According to ECCF committee members, the party is the result of year-round fund-raising efforts, the largest of which is the Chili Cook-Off. The ECCF is a non-profit organization consisting of four committee members, though the Roi-Namur community helps with the organization’s fund-raising events. At the Christmas celebration, ECCF sponsors games and prizes, feeds the children and their families and provides each child with a gift bag containing toys, clothing, school supplies and personal hygiene items, according to Stephenia Cousins, ECCF vice president. The children also get their picture taken with Santa. “We plan this event year-long to share the tradition and cultures between the two com munities,” Floyd Corder, Roi-Namur Operations manager, said. “They bring joy to us with the dancing that they bring.” This year’s Enniburr Children’s Christmas Party will take place Dec. 12 at the Tradewinds Theater on Roi-Namur. Volunteers are welcome to help hand out gifts, supervise and assist with games and food booths, play with the children and make balloon animals. For more information on the party, contact Tony Stephens at 56658.Likiep Christmas DropWhat started two years ago as a personal crusade for three couples blossomed into the Likiep Christmas Drop, one of the newer Christmas traditions. Because the group prefers to remain anonymous, they are referred to herein as ‘Friends of Likiep.’ Unlike other drops, the group does not visit the island. Instead, donations are sent via airplane to Likiep. Past donations include 122 new T-shirts and school supplies. “It’s Christmas,” said a Friend of Likiep spokesperson, “we have so much and they have so little.” The group continues to offer support to the island year-round with donations of supplies and toys for their school fund-raising carnival. “Each time there has been a need, more and more people have contributed,” the spokesperson said. This year’s Likiep Christmas Drop date is undetermined. Anyone interested in making a donation or offering assistance with wrapping gifts may make contact with the group by dialing 53370.HOLIDAY, from Page 5 Tim Lykes, Roi-Namur Community Activities manager and events coordinator for last year’s Enniburr Children’s Christmas Party, provides an attendee with some tips on aiming at the target. “Each game or event came with a small prize,” Lykes said. ts and sc


Saturday, Nov. 5, 2005 The Kwajalein Hourglass 7Quality of Life team aids youth education By Mig Owens Assistant editorDelighted kindergarten teachers dug into $12,500 worth of school supplies Wednesday at Ebeye Public School’s computer room. The supplies were donated by the Quality of Life Integrated Product Team, under the direction Kevin Finn, vice president/deputy program manager, Community Services, in an effort to enhance the lives of children of Kwajalein’s workforce living on both Ebeye and Enniburr. According to Janette Bishop, executive assistant to Finn and QOL IPT minutes recorder and representative, $2,500 worth of supplies for Enniburr were shipped to Roi-Namur Thursday where they will be staged for presentation to Enniburr Public School before Thanksgiving. The school’s needs were determined through meetings with local government and school principals. Purchases were initiated one year ago, though late receipt of the items delayed their presentation. Though the supply drop was not aligned with the start of the school year for this reason, Jack Riordan, Republic of the Marshall Islands Employee Relations manager and QOL IPT representative, said, “I think there’s always a need. At any time they welcome support.” School supplies included calculators, dictionaries, microscopes, white marker boards, pencils, dry erase markers, crayons, chalks, ller papers, construction papers, colored bond papers, scissors, bulletin boards, wall banners, posters, ash cards, maps, globes, all levels of guided reading books and family books.Bishop said that Wednesday’s event made her “feel good and very proud to be a part of a company that cares for and looks after the well being of its’ indigenous workforce and their families.” The charter of the QOL IPT is to gather input from all demographics of the U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site in order to develop recommendations to senior management that facilitate the use of Indian Funds expenditures for items that improve the morale and living conditions of the USAKA/RTS community. The committee evaluates and recommends usage of KRS Team donations to the USAKA/RTS community. According to Finn, “The company wants to make life better for everyone working out here – to help children of our valued workers.” QOL IPT completed projects are: mobile kitchen, 2005 Kwajalein Range Services scholarships and the Adult Recreation Center mold remediation. Funded projects on the horizon include: Emon Beach revitalization, ice machine dispenser at the ARC, a teen sound-proofed music room and golf lockers. In his remarks Wednesday, Finn thanked U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Host Nation of cials for providing transportation by which the school supplies were delivered. Ebeye Public School representatives on the receiving end of the supplies were vocal about their appreciation. “A good education involves many aspects,” said Andrea Hazzard, training coordinator. “A big part is the resources that we have. We are very grateful and will use this as best we can to enhance education on Ebeye…We look forward to telling you how we put it to use,” she said. The most important donation in the eyes of Marcella Sakaio, the school’s Parent Resource Information Center resource specialist, is what she referred to as ‘reading books’ because, she said, the school does not have a good library. Sakaio was also excited to see resources for teachers, which she said are lacking. Though the supplies were given directly to Ebeye Public School, school representatives explained that they will be used to ll the need elsewhere as well. “Whatever the school has, it shares with other schools, both public and private,” Sakaio explained. “It’s an Ebeye community tradition.” Following the presentation of school supplies, Carl Jeadrik, school principal, offered the delegation from Kwajalein a tour of the school, minus its 1,300 students who had the day off. John Pickler, KRS president, said of Wednesday’s event, “I felt a great sense of partnership with the Ebeye community and the Marshallese people, who do so much for us to make our mission here at USAKA/RTS and KRS so successful.” He added, “They are such wonderful, caring, and dedicated people that it just makes me feel warm inside to think that in some way we can pay them back for their generosity and contributions to the reason we’re here on Kwajalein.” A young Ebeye boy investigates school supplies delivered Wednesday.(Photo by Mig Owens)

Magarita and the entire Bolkeim family – on behalf of the Supply and Transportation employees and my family, I extend our deepest sympathy. As I was preparing for work Saturday, I received a phone call from Burt Kakuda. I was shocked and saddened. Shocked because only three days earlier, we talked, as we usually did at least three times a week regarding his health and he said, “I’m feeling good.” He appeared to be in good spirits. I always coached him into taking care of his health. As I rode my bike to a meeting, I thought back of the earlier years here on Kwajalein. I first met Brown around 1968 or 1969. At the time, he worked at Surfway. He was an accomplished athlete. I heard about this fast ball pitcher who could pitch between his legs and around his back with the same accuracy and velocity as in the normal style of pitching. I found it hard to believe so I went to the ball field and saw for myself. Sure enough, on that day, he pitched one between his legs in the strike zone. Several years later, in 1973, Brown came to work with me and continued until his passing, which totaled 32 years. He was a skilled equipment operator and trained new, young employees. In all those years, he never got into a safety incident. His attendance was excellent… always on-time. He never complained in all the years. He was a dedicated and dependable, outstanding employee. He was well-liked by his coworkers and all he came into contact with. Brown was very family oriented, always looking out for their welfare. I spent much time with his family and got to know them well. He named a son after me, Jimmy Bolkeim. Jimmy is arriving tomorrow [Friday], all the way from Arkansas. He will be sorely missed at work by all his co-workers. It will be an adjustment period for all of us. Monday, Oct. 31, my daughter Serena called from Chicago and when I informed her of Brown’s passing, she was shocked and saddened as well. She asked to pass on her condolences to the family. Brown was always good to her while she grew up here on Kwajalein for 13 years and likewise, she was very fond of Brown. My Jera, my Brother, I will miss you. We all will miss you. Thank you for being my friend and for the hard work you did for us over the past 32 years. As they say in the Marshall Islands, Yokwe and in Hawaii, Aloha. Brown Bolkeim
