Both military and non-military children participated in recognizing this special month at the Kwajalein Child Development Center. On April 22, Lt. Col.

The Pilot-inCommand is the ultimate authority and has the final responsibility for the safe and orderly conduct of a flight. Hired as experienced airplane pilots by the previous contractor, they were not helicopter qualified as required by the current contract. Through funding from U.S. and RMI sources they obtained the helicopter rating stateside and completed their UH-1H training on Kwajalein under the tutelage of AirScan Pacific Instructor Pilot Roy D. Howard. They are the only Marshallese helicopter pilots in the world! “This qualification was a difficult but rewarding experience,” said Alfred. “All of us appreciate the opportunity Kwajalein has afforded us, and we intend to positively contribute to the future of aviation here.” Photo of Helbert Alfredhanded out Certi cates of Appreciation to military children at the CDC. On April 26, Kwajalein’s military kindergartners through sixth graders, and their families, listened to the School Age Services students speak about their experiences as children in the military. After the speeches, a question and answer session took place. Then Cheri Malloy, Child Youth Services Coordinator, lead a roundtable discussion. The military children received Certi cates of Appreciation.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Friday, May 2, 2008 3See ID THEFT, Page 9What to do about identity theft? Part IIThe USAKA Legal Of ceContributorLast week you read about the four steps to take when confronted with the theft of your personal identi cation. Reviewing the four main points of last week’s article: 1. Request a “fraud alert” on your credit reports as soon as possible and review your credit report for suspicious activity; 2. Close accounts that have been tampered with or opened fraudulently; 3. File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission; 4. File a local police report. This week we take a more detailed look at look at fraud alerts, credit freezes and identi cation theft reports. The information presented below for this article was obtained from the Federal Trade Commission. What is a fraud alert? There are two types of fraud alerts: an initial alert, and an extended alert. • An initial fraud alert stays on your credit report for at least 90 days. You may ask that an initial fraud alert be placed on your credit report if you suspect you have been, or are about to be, a victim of identity theft. An initial alert is appropriate if your wallet has been stolen or if you’ve been taken in by a “phishing” scam. With an initial fraud alert, potential creditors must use what the law refers to as “reasonable policies and procedures” to verify your identity before issuing credit in your name. When you place an initial fraud alert on your credit report, you’re entitled to order one free credit report from each of the three nationwide consumer reporting companies, and if requested, only the last four digits of your Social Security number will appear on your credit reports. • An extended fraud alert stays on your credit report for seven years. You can have an extended alert placed on your credit report if you’ve been a victim of identity theft and you provide the consumer reporting company with an Identity Theft Report. With an extended fraud alert, potential creditors must actually contact you, or meet with you in person, before they issue you credit. When you place an extended alert on your credit report, you’re entitled to two free credit reports within twelve months from each of the three nationwide consumer reporting companies. In addition, the consumer reporting companies will remove your name from marketing lists for prescreened credit offers for ve years unless you ask them to put your name back on the list before then. To place either of these alerts on your credit report, or to have them removed, you will be required to provide appropriate proof of your identity; that may include your Social Security number, name, address and other personal information requested by the consumer reporting company. What does a fraud alert not do? While a fraud alert can help keep an identity thief from opening new accounts in your name, it’s not a solution to all types of identity theft. It will not protect you from an identity thief using your existing credit cards or other accounts. Also, it also will not protect you from an identity thief opening new accounts in your name that do not require a credit check — such as a telephone, wireless, or bank account. Furthermore, if there’s identity theft already going on when you place the fraud alert, the fraud alert alone won’t stop it. A fraud alert can be extremely useful in stopping identity theft that involves opening a new line of credit. What is a credit freeze? Many states have laws that let consumers “freeze” their credit. In other words, allowing a consumer to restrict access to his or her credit report. If you initiate a credit freeze, potential creditors and other third parties will not be able to get access to your credit report unless you temporarily lift the freeze. In this case, it’s unlikely that an identity thief would be able to open a new account in your name. Credit freeze laws vary from state to state. In some states, anyone can freeze their credit le, while in other states, only identity theft victims can. Initiating a credit freeze, temporarily lifting it and removing it, varies in price. What does a credit freeze not do? While a credit freeze can help keep an identity thief from opening most new accounts in your name, it’s not a solution to all types of identity theft. It will not protect you, for example, from an identity thief who uses your existing credit cards or other accounts. There are also new accounts, such as telephone, wireless, and bank accounts, which an ID thief could open without a credit check. In addition, some creditors might open an account without rst getting your credit report. And, if there’s identity theft already The 2008 Rusty Family Mini-Triathlon 4:30 p.m., May 12 Distances: 500-yard swim, 10-mile bike and twomile run. Pre-registration by Thursday.

Friday, May 2, 2008 The Kwajalein Hourglass 4Renee Biser-McGinnisContributor Over 300 photos were exhibited at the Annual Kwajalein Photography Contest on Monday in the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose room. I felt that it was important to co-sponsor this yearÂ’s photo exhibition. This was an effort to create a forum for the photographers on Kwajalein to display their photographs to the public. I also wanted the publicÂ’s involvement in the initial selection of the photographs for the 2009 Kwaj Calendar. With the population at an all time low, we not only exceeded our expectations but more than exceeded last yearÂ’s entries and voting ballots. I want to thank the Kwajalein Art Guild for giving me the opportunity to make this event happen and especially thank all the photographers for their entries and the residents who came out to vote. The photographs were displayed anonymously and the seven categories of competition were: work, recreation, nature, Marshallese culture, underwater, fantasy and open. The six most popular photos in each category will Kwajalein recreation category: AnticipationPhoto by John Breen be considered by the calendar committee for possible selection and placement in the 2009 Kwaj Calendar. A list of the top six winners in each category will be posted on the bulletin board downtown.

Friday, May 2, 2008 The Kwajalein Hourglass 6Bob Sholar and Yael BealsContributor and EditorThe 29th Annual RustMan consisted of 16 individual contestants and 13 teams. On Monday, U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll Commander Col. Stevenson Reed, sounded the start siren at 4 p.m., at Echo Pier. The RustMan distances were, a one-kilometer swim, a 42-kilometer bike ride and a 10-kilometer run. A kilometer equals about ve-eighths of a mile. Thomas Cardillo became the seventh person to break under 2:15:00, after 29 annual RustMan competitions. The age group division record fell when Cardillo, age 40, nished rst in 2:14:16. Cardillo has participated in six individual RustMan events and this is his third Men’s Division win, with a personal best by over three minutes. The combination of Cardillos’ age and time, established a new Men’s Masters Division record, beating the 2:15:45 by Nick Perry in 2004. Jon Jahnke, second time RustMan participant, also reached the Men’s Masters Division and cut over four minutes off of his 2007 winning time, nishing second in 2:16:32. Stephanie Los took rst for the ladies division. This was her second time participating in the RustMan. She nished in 2:34:56, which is almost a 23 minute improvement over her 2007 time. Los’ trained over the past two months. She swam once a week and ran and biked twice a week. Los will be running in the Honolulu Marathon in December and will start training in August. Los explained that her pit crew person, Monica McGatha, was instrumental in cutting down her time. “I’m support for the runners and participants of the RustMan. I help them get their gear together, stay hydrated, and stay positive,” said McGatha. She made sure shoes, shorts, and towels were easily accessible; had fresh water ready to rinse the swimmers; and set up play lists on iPods. In second place for the ladies division was rst time RustMan participant, Alex McGlinn. Her time was 2:51:56. Spec-Swimmers started at Echo Pier and swam to Emon Beach.

The Kwajalein Hourglass Friday, May 2, 2008tators noted McGlinn as a graceful runner. Mike Savage, second time RustMan participant, used his one speed “Kwaj bike,” nishing in 2:57: 05. Savage was the only participant with a one speed bike in 2007, but this year was joined by Victor Burnley and Murphy Whitesitt. Ron Sylvester, rst time RustMan participant, nished third in 2:30:07, beating his personal goal of three hours. Jack Carey, 67, and second time RustMan participant, competed in the Social Security Eligible Division, nishing in 3:08:23. Carey trained for four months. “When I rst started running out here, I’d run half a block, walk the other half, and go home exhausted. My knees were hurting and I just thought I was too old. But I started stretching and I found that I could lengthen things out. It wasn’t long before I was running with the running club. It’s never too late to start,” said Carey. The rst to nish in the team division was swimmer, Justin DeCoster, biker, Jeffrey Fluhrer and runner, John Lafferty. They nished in 2:20:17. Lafferty had the fastest run segment for the team group division, 47:10. Lafferty, who is the Kwajalein Running Club vice-president, will leave Kwajalein in 7May to attend the U.S. Navy Of cer Candidate School. There were two notable team division swim segment times: Peter Schulz, 13:01 and Tara Erwin, 13:13. Peter Schulz trained for eight months, swam ve days a week and 2500 yard a day. Schulz is planning on participating in the RustMan, without a team, next year. Erwin’s time just missed the swim segment record of 13:10, by Andrea Lindborg in 1993. Erwin started swimming competitively when she was six and continued for 16 years, through her senior year of college. “I retired when I graduated from college, I wasn’t going to go pro,” said Erwin. Erwin stopped swimming last February, when her nal season came to an end. “I miss competing but I don’t miss swimming.” Erwin trained for one day for the RustMan this year and she had fun competing. The team division biking segment record holder is Chris Johnson’s 1:04:17, from 2005. This year his time was 1:06:40, two plus minutes slower than his record time. Not too far behind Chris was rst time participant, Alan Calvert in 1:07:48. This year’s participants included two former residents, Pam Tinker-Johnson, from San Diego, Ca. and DeAnn Brower, from Huntsville, Al. They both returned to Kwajalein to participate in the 29th Annual RustMan. Alex McGlinn rinses herself with fresh water after nishing the one-kilometer swim.

What is an Identity Theft Report? An Identity Theft Report is a police report with more than the usual amount of detail. The Identity Theft Report includes enough detail about the crime for the credit reporting companies and the businesses involved to verify that you are a victim — and to know which accounts and inaccurate information came from identity theft. Normal police reports often don’t have many details about the accounts that were opened or misused by identity thieves. When you le your Identity Theft Report, the credit reporting companies will permanently block fraudulent information from appearing on your credit report. An Identity Theft Report can prevent a company from continuing to try to collect debts that result from identity theft, or sell those debts to others for collection. It also allows you to place an extended fraud alert on your credit report. Creating and using an Identity Theft Report may require two steps: Step one begins with ling your report with a local, state or federal law enforcement agency. These agencies may include your local police department, your State Attorney General, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U.S. Secret Service, the FTC, or the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. Some state laws require local police departments to take reports, but there is no law requiring federal agencies to take a report. In your report, you should give as much information as you can about the crime, including anything you know about the dates of the identity theft, the fraudulent accounts opened and the alleged identity thief. Step two begins when you send the businesses involved and the credit reporting companies a copy of your Identity Theft Report, which you should do by certi ed mail, return receipt requested. The companies may ask you to give them more information or documentation to help them verify your identity theft. They have to make their request within 15 days of receiving your Identity Theft Report. The credit reporting company or business then has 15 more days to work with you to make sure your Identity Theft Report contains everything they need. They are also entitled ve days to review any information you give them. How do I get an Identity Theft Report? The of cer taking your police report can attach or incorporate your ID Theft Complaint into their police report to include details. Ask the of cer to give you a copy of the of cial police report that incorporates or attaches your ID Theft Complaint. How do I submit my Identity Theft Report to the credit reporting companies or to businesses where the thief used my information? When you send a copy of your Identity Theft Report to the fraud departments of the three major credit reporting companies, include a copy of the credit reporting company cover letter, along with copies of your supporting documentation. Send your information by certi ed mail with return receipt requested. When writing to the fraud departments of each of the companies where the identity thief has committed fraud using your personal information, include copies of the Identity Theft Report, your supporting documentation, and the appropriate cover letter: for fraud on your existing accounts, or for fraud on new accounts. Always send this information by certi ed mail, with a return receipt requested. How do I prove that I’m an identity theft victim? Applications or other transaction records related to the theft of your identity may help you prove that you are a victim. For example, you may be able to show that the signature on an application is not yours. These documents also may contain information about the identity thief that is valuable to law enforcement. By law, companies must give you a copy of the application or other business transaction records relating to your identity theft if you submit your request in writing, accompanied by a police report.

Mackey presents the Quarters of the Quarter award to Selentina BeniaminaPhoto by Lee CrakerBy Yael BealsEditorSelentina and Russell Beniamina, Quarters 445-B, won the Quarters of the Quarter award for the third time. According to Russell, winners of this award used to be judged by the cleanliness of their yards but now they are judged by their plant display. Selentina is the caretaker of her plants but Russell taught her everything she knows. She waters her plants every other day, in the early morning or in the evening, never during mid-day. She feeds her plants once a month. Selentina frequently moves her plants so they receive either more shade or more sun, depending on the plant. She also trims them when they are over-grown. What’s special about Selentina’s plants is that she takes clippings from plant species and mixes them with different species, resulting in a colorful arrangement of plants.Quarters of the quarter award Golfers, it’s time to renew semi-annual green fees for the period of June 1 through November 30.
