The U.S. Secret Service is investigating businesses nationwide that have had credit card numbers hacked from their computers. Credit cards are being recreated with these stolen numbers and are being used around the world.

The only common link the Secret Service has found is the credit card software called “Aloha,” and companies still using default system passwords.

The Glenwood Springs Police Department advises any businesses using Aloha to change their system password if the password is set as the default.

For information contact the police department at 384-6500, or report criminal activity at http://www.glenwoodpolice.com.

12:30 to 2 p.m., Basalt Town Hall, 1010 Midland Ave.

3 to 4:30 p.m., Rio Grande Building, third floor, 455 Rio Grande Place, Aspen.

In mid-May, approximately 29,900 Holy Cross Energy customers will receive 2010 member equity allocation notices and their share of nearly $1.8 million in 2010 member equity distributions. Another 10,800 Holy Cross customers, entitled to amounts less than $10, will see their credit applied to their electric account instead of a check.

As a not-for-profit electric utility, Holy Cross Energy allocates any annual revenues that exceed expenses back to each member based upon their purchases of electricity in that year.

With this equity distribution, more than $37 million has been returned to members since 2005.
