JOSEPH CASSIDY Contributing Writer The College Hill mansion, home of the University of Hawai‘i system president, will receive a $680,000 renovation this year. This is the most recent in a series of repairs over the last decade that have already cost the university at least $1.3 million. State law requires that historic buildings be repaired using materials identical to the original – and College Hill falls into that category, according to Vassilis Syrmos, associate vice chancellor for research and graduate education and member of the Campus Facilities Planning Board. The original materials used to build College Hill are not ideal for

Hawai‘i’s tropical climate and are prone to water damage and termites. But if the mansion is to be renovated, it is required by law to be repaired using these same expensive and damage-prone materials. To illustrate, Syrmos compared asphalt roofi ng used for modern buildings to the royal single cedar roof of College Hill. “A royal single cedar roof costs about $35 per square foot; the asphalt roofi ng we typically use today costs about $15 per square foot.”

N O E A S Y TA S K The installation of the roof, along with other repairs, are labor-intensive and must be done by specialized architects. Hundredyear-old window mechanisms are

being replaced, the wooden siding of the building must be specially milled and wooden ornaments that are either missing or water damaged are being replaced. Termites have been found and have so far contributed to an addtional $15,000 in repairs. The house is also receiving a solar water heater and renovations to make the first floor American Disability Act accessible. To avoid these problems in the future, Syrmos suggested that the university devote resources to inspections and a comprehensive maintenance plan for College Hill, which would lengthen the lifespan of materials. “We truly look at this seriously; otherwise in 10 years we’ll have the same problems.”

VAC A N T AT P R E S E N T College Hill has been used to house UH presidents since it was donated to the university in 1963. Current UH System President M.R.C. Greenwood does not live in College Hill, but is instead allocating it to be used as “a system resource and ... as a venue for official University of Hawai‘i events and functions that are directly related to and promote accomplishments of the university’s mission,” according to College Hill Guidelines. In the past three years, it has been used for meetings, receptions, lunches, dinners and retreats. Student groups like

Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i, the Regents and Presidential Scholars and the Student Caucus have utilized the mansion, although it is primarily used by non-students. The College Hill guidelines state that only the president, Board of Regents members, vice presidents and chancellors may request use of College Hill. These are referred to in the guidelines as “requestors.” Requestors may also make reservations for the University of Hawai‘i Foundation and the University of Hawai‘i Alumni Association. According to a Honolulu StarAdvertiser article published on Feb. 16, 2011, $115,000 is spent anually to maintain College Hill. The university did not respond to questions asking for updated figures on College Hill’s currrent maintenance costs and how this compares to other venues used for similar purposes. Greenwood currently resides in a condo in Waikīkī and receives a monthly $5,000 housing stipend.

“Keep the Lights on” was directed by Ira Sachs. ʻKEEP THE LIGHTS ONʼ

Mark O’Brien ( John Hawkes), a polio victim with a contorted body, aims to lose his virginity while he still can with the help of sex therapist Cheryl (Helen Hunt), but not without the permission of his church’s priest, Father Brendan ( William H. Macy). His limitations don’t prevent him from becoming a poet or journalist, and Mark eventually finds both a sexual and emotional breakthrough in his life through kindness and compassion.

Documentary filmmaker Erik (Thure Lindhardt) and literary agent Paul (Zachary Booth) develop a relationship from casual fling to serious commitment. Paul is a drug addict, but this isn’t the only destructive force dissolving their relationship – emotional turmoil and longing hinder the growth of love. Erik and Paul come to understand the cost of sacrifice in what is sure to be an unapologetic portrayal of affection and sorrow.

Food Day event to highlight local farms CAITLIN KURODA Features Editor In Hawai‘i, where emphasis is placed on making the switch to eating local, it’s important to be aware of the nutritional content and origin of foods. This year’s free Food Day event, set for Wednesday, Oct. 24, will focus on these issues and more in a day filled with presentations, informational booths and, of course, food. According to its website, Food Day promotes “healthy, affordable and sustainable food.” This year’s theme is “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Fish.” John Kaneko, program manager for the Hawai‘i Seafood Council, will be presenting. Student research projects from within the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition will be on display, and a food drive will be ongoing throughout the event. Philip Shon, Sodexo executive chef at University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, will also be running a food demonstration. Presentations will be kept short to allow attendees time to meet with the speakers as well as sample the food tastings. “We’re all eaters,” said Corilee Watters, assistant professor profe fessor of nu-

trition at UH Mānoa. “So all eaters please come and … listen in and see if you can learn something and broaden your perspective.”

K N OW YO U R F I S H (F O O D) A key speaker at the event is Fred Lau, owner of Mari’s Gardens. This farm grows catfish and tilapia and uses the fish effluent as a source of nitrogen for fertilizer. “I’m really impressed with [Lau’s] working conditions for his farm workers. … These are employees that have been with the family for a long time, and I think we need to recognize farmers that are doing such a great job bringing us wholesome food in an affordable manner,” said Watters. Watters will be at the event talking about research she has done regarding methods of making farmed fish even healthier. She wants to further the health benefits to humans of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids found in fish. By using more of these longchains as a feed enhancer, the fish diet is enriched and results in more nutrients for the people who consume them.

AWA R E N E S S

Food Day strives to increase awareness of what we eat, but Watters stressed that students can take their own steps as well. “I actually think we need to start demanding where we get our food [and] that it’s local.” She explained that locally grown produce is picked closer to peak ripeness, so “it’s a little softer and fragile, has more flavor, and actually it has more nutrients because it’s spent a longer time ripening.” Imported produce is limited in variety and nutritional value because the types of produce sent to Hawai‘i are chosen based on their ability to withstand shipping and are picked early. “Look for local, ask for where it came from, because the quality and the freshness is going to be there,” urged Watters.

Know Your Farmer, Know Your Fish When: Wednesday, Oct. 24; 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Where: Campus Center Executive Dining Room Cost: Free Contact: cwatters@hawaii.edu RSVP: foodday.org/5878/know_ your_farmer_know_your_fish The event is open to all, but an RSVP is recommended to ensure that enough food is available at the event.

‘Seven Psychopaths’ JOSEPH H AN Staff Writer “Seven Psychopaths,” written and directed by Martin McDonagh, is wild, hilarious and relentless in its search of something reconcilable in a landscape of dark humor and violence. As a meta-film, “Seven Psychopaths” almost creates itself as self-indulgence drives the film with rampant force through outrageous dream sequences and the explosive showing of absurd reality. Marty Faranan (Colin Farrell) is an alcoholic screenwriter struggling to pen a script entitled “Seven Psychopaths,” but he doesn’t want it to be about violence, guns or typical shootouts. He wants it to be about love – “something like a Buddhist thriller.” His friend Billy Bickle (Sam Rockwell) supports the success of this screenplay with unyielding devotion – he places an ad in the paper calling for psychopaths to tell their story to Marty – and works in the dognapping business with Hans (Christopher Walken) for kicks and cash. The great Tom Waits plays Zachariah Rigby, one half of a serial-killer-killing couple who wants to find his missing love by having his message placed

in the credits of Marty’s movie. The Jack of Diamonds killer, who only goes after members of the mob, begins to serve as an inspiration for the movie. Mayhem ensues when Billy dognaps Bonny, a Shih Tzu belonging to obsessive pet owner and pistol-wielding mob man Charlie Costello ( Woody Harrelson). Marty is the observer in this film, and with Farrell as the center, this allows Rockwell and Walken to both showboat and deliver performances of hilarity and controlled emotion. Dialogue is sharp and witty, and the actors deliver it with comedic timing and urgency – there’s no wonder why Marty is having such a difficult time. Everything that happens converges after multiple deaths and evolves into a very unexpected and poignant climax of reversal. Even after the chaos settles, “Seven Psychopaths” does not undercut the various pieces of the narrative that come together as the unseen version of Marty’s own screenplay: The implosion of witnessing this film create and finish itself will leave you with an unforgettable experience of the process of its creation.

Opinions

Unexploded ordnance, impending problem SAR AH NEAL Senior Staff Writer President Barack Obama is in a unique position to help Hawai‘i resolve a decades-old issue. As the commander-in-chief, Obama approves the major policies and missions of our military personnel. He has used his power to end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and in August he issued an executive order demanding better health services for veterans. But Obama should now use his power to demand the cooperation of our military in the cleanup of the unexploded ordnance littering the very islands he calls home.

A DA N G E RO U S S C E N A R I O Having grown up on O‘ahu, Obama can understand how important the land is to the people who live here. As such, he has more of a responsibility than previous presidents to ensure that the military activ-

ities on these islands have as little impact as possible, and that damage from earlier exercises be reversed in a swift manner. It’s unacceptable that some of the 150 Formerly Used Defense Sites have been neglected for decades when the United States military has both the funds and the manpower to clean up after themselves, and it’s shameful that one of the bestfunded industries in the U.S. has been allowed to leave dangerous refuse lying hidden around the areas we work, eat and play every day. If the groups working to free the islands of these dangerous materials don’t want the manpower of our armed forces to assist them, the president should direct some of the billions of dollars used to fund the military towards these projects instead.

S OM E P RO G R E S S N O T E N O U G H There has been some progress made in recent years regarding this issue. In 2009,

Sen. Daniel Inouye led efforts to obtain funding for the cleanup of Waikoloa Valley. He helped secure $70 million for a five-year contract that seeks to rid the valley of the hand grenades, 4.2 inch mortar, and 37 mm, 75 mm, 105 mm and 155 mm high-explosive shells hidden there. A total of $82 million has been allocated to projects cleaning this area and more than 2,100 munitions or explosive items and 260 tons of military have been removed. Although this is a start, it is only a portion of the estimated $600 million needed just to clean Waikoloa Valley. There are many other sites that need to be worked, and the United States should devote more of its funds to help speed up the pace of the cleanup projects. If Obama is re-elected this November, I will write a letter to him to remind him of this responsibility and ask him to put out a presidential order through the secretary of defense that corrects the egregious wrong committed on these islands.

UH baseball hosts Shanghai JOEY R AMIREZ Associate Sports Editor Although Hawai‘i’s season opener against Oregon is still four months away, Les Murakami Stadium will be opening its gates for fans to get an early preview of the 2013 University of Hawai‘i baseball team. For the first time in Mike Trapasso’s 11 years as head coach of the Rainbows, the team will be playing in a fall exhibition game as the ‘Bows are set to play host to the Shanghai Sports Institute of China. “When you go a whole month of fall practice and you just scrimmage against each other everyday, it can get old and it can get monotonous,” said Trapasso. “I just thought it would be a great opportunity to break that up, play somebody else [and] maybe even give our fans a chance to come in and see some of our new guys earlier than normal.”

A N U N K N OW N O P P O N E N T The ‘Bows are coming off a 30 -25 season, which included a

10 -8 mark in Western Athletic Conference play. Admission to the upcoming pair of exhibition games is free to all fans that want to see the dawn of the Big West era of UH baseball. “It’s a chance to come watch October baseball, which we don’t get in Hawai‘i very often,” said Trapasso. “Hopefully we’ll have great weather and it’s a chance to come out and see a team from China, which we don’t get a chance to see everyday.” While UH fans can look forward to getting to know more about this year’s squad, the Rainbows themselves know almost nothing when it comes to their opponent. “I know about as much as them [the fans],” said freshman second baseman Stephen Ventimilia. “I have no idea about anything.” “I don’t really know anything about the Shanghai Sports Institute,” Trapasso said. “That’s all I know: their name.”

N E W A N D O L D FAC E S As for the UH lineup, Trapas-

so plans to keep the team’s pitching rotation in sync with fall practice while keeping some familiar faces on the bench. “Whichever groups are on that day, those guys will throw,” Trapasso said. “Jarrett Arakawa and Lawrence Chew are not throwing this whole fall. They’ve thrown a lot of innings and, Scott Squier, [we are] on the verge of shutting him down. We’ll throw a mixture of returning and new guys. The guys are at two, three, four innings tops.” While the ‘Bows hope to defend their home turf against Shanghai, they have their sights set on a larger prize that is months away. “It’s our first year in the Big West, so we’d really like to be competitive and we’d like to try and win the Big West,” Ventimilia said. “That’s always a goal – to win conference and move on to a regional. We have to try and give it all everyday and get as close to 100 percent perfect as possible. If we can do that, then we’ll be a very successful team.”

Ka Leo Player of the Week: Jade Vorster JOEY R AMIREZ Associate Sports Editor Redshirt freshman middle blocker Jade Vorster has been named Ka Leo Player of the Week for her role in Hawai‘i’s four-set victory over Cal State Northridge. Vorster finished the night with 11 kills, one dig, and a .304 hitting percentage to go along with her team-high five blocks as the Rainbow Wahine took the match 22-25, 25 -18, 25 -21, 25 -20. “I try not to think about the stats when I play or after the game,” Vorster said. “I just try to think about the things I did, the things I did bad, and try to keep my mentality off of the stats – but it was a good match.” The Orlando, Fla., native opened the season with 9.2 kills per match in her first five games. But over her next eight games, she averaged just 4.6 kills per match. Now, having compiled 32 kills and 21 blocks in her last four matches, it seems that Vorster is getting back to her early-season self. “It’s gotten a little bit harder. There’s been more fi lm and people

kind of know my tendencies now [that] I’m not so new. It’s been a little tougher lately, so it was nice to come out and have good numbers,” Vorster said. Earlier in the season the Matadors almost upset the ‘Bows by taking them to five sets in UH’s first Big West Conference match. “It was the first game on the road and maybe we were a little complacent and weren’t ready for it,” said Vorster. “We wanted to show them that last time we weren’t on our game. We wanted to show them what we really have.”
