Two reported break-ins and thefts of computers have occurred at Moore Hall within the past week. On Tuesday night, multiple rooms were broken into on the third ﬂoor of Moore Hall, which houses the East Asian Languages and Literatures department. According to a UH alert issued by Campus Security, two computers were taken. Campus Security received a report of a suspicious couple outside of Moore Hall and a second report of a male described to be in his late 20’s with dirty blonde hair running from the building. He was accompanied by a female with long blonde, straight hair in a vehicle fronting East West Road. The vehicle ﬂed west bound on Dole Street with the two inside. Last Friday, seven ofﬁces were broken into, and six computers were taken from the Language and Literatures of Europe and the Americas department on the fourth ﬂoor of Moore Hall. Campus Security received the report of the robbery at 6:30 a.m.

S evera l computers, mostly Macs, were stolen. Christina Gerhardt, an associate professor of German, said the perpetrators used a tool to pry open the door frames. “I think that the problem and the concern is that, aside from questions of security, is that faculty members might have information on the computers that identiﬁes them or their students,” Gerhardt said. “The other concern is that this kind of theft has squandered resources, and since we’re a public university that relies on student tuition and taxpayer money, that’s a real shame.” Gerhardt said the chair of the department is working with the affected people along with Campus Security and Honolulu Police Department to take steps from here. “I think one needs to take steps to ensure that this doesn’t happen

again, e s p e cially preventative measures,” Gerhardt said. “Recovery is really important, but prevention in the future is very important too.” Honolulu Police Department is handling these investigations. Anyone with information is asked to call them at 911 or Campus Security at 956-6911. The break-ins have already spurred changes aimed at preventing similar thefts. Personnel from the Center for Language and Technology, located on the second ﬂoor of Moore, are already working to reinforce doors on the LLEA Department’s adminis-

Honolulu Magazine editor A. Kam Napier
JACKIE PERREIR A Senior Staff Writer A man with a 5 o’clock shadow, frantic hair and white shirt sleeves rolled up, barking orders amidst a ﬂurry of loose papers and chaos – that’s what you think of when hearing the word “editor.” Honolulu Magazine editor A. Kam Napier, 44, dispels that stereotype. A Waipahu High School and University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa graduate with a bachelor’s degree in English, Napier is anything but frantic. As a seasoned writer who worked his way up from occasional freelance work, Napier discusses his journey and experiences in working on the other side of the chopping block. A lot of college students start off having weird side jobs. Did you have any? I got a job at Diamond Head Theatre, and that was really a lot of fun. I wrote a lot there. By the time I left, I was their marketing director. I really enjoyed it. But if I stayed with marketing, it’d be easy to kind of get stuck there. … I was doing a lot of writing, but it was helping other creative people sell themselves as a product, and I wanted to be the product. How did that lead to you being a writer? I started freelance writing around town, a little for the Weekly, Honolulu Weekly and Honolulu Magazine. ... So that’s when I learned that some people get to write for a living, on staff at a magazine. How did you get a job at Honolulu Magazine? Any time I saw someone from around town from the magazine, I would pester them. “Oh, are you guys hiring?” And one day the editor, John Heckathorn, called me up, and he said, “Are you serious? Because now I’m hiring.” … So talking about story ideas with him led to doing some
freelance … and I think we really liked working together. … I’m always going to be grateful for the fact that he took a chance on me because I really did not have a lot of experience; I just had some ability and deﬁnitely a strong desire to do this for a living. Do you have any advice for people suffering from writer’s block? If it’s a really big complicated story, you can get stuck on how to organize it. And sometimes you have to do a ﬁrst draft that’s just totally wrong, like it would never be published. But you have to get all that material on paper somehow and then you write the real one. How would you describe your managerial style? I like to give people a lot of room to do what they do, with a clear understanding that when the work comes in, it’s got to be good and on time. And that everyone gets edited – even me. I don’t publish anything without having someone else on staff read it.
at it and go, “Oh, this part right here doesn’t look right to me.” And then theoretically the editor also has the experience to help ﬁx it and so that’s rewarding. I like it, but saying no is difﬁcult.

about the work, I relate to his approach to that. But then the rest of his life is totally bizarre. What is the most important thing you’ve learned from your career thus far? If you think you’ve spelt everything right, go check again, because you didn’t. It never fails. … Some months, I get the freshly printed copy, open it up to a page at random and the ﬁrst thing I see is a typo. Never fails. That’s glib, but it’s true. What is some advice you’d give to any aspiring writers or journalists? Read a lot, write a lot. If you’re starting as a freelancer, which is probably the best way to land a staff job, pitch a lot of stories, be responsive to what the publication is looking for. … That is often how a magazine will get to know somebody and what their work ethic is like, what their writing style is like, what their personality is like. I don’t know how someone becomes an editor, so I don’t really have any advice there. Learn the business and try to create an environment where people feel like they can explore their interests and play a little; be creative, but you know, on time.

Opinions Breaking and leaving My girlfriend and I recently broke up, but I’ve been living at her place with her parents for most of our relationship. She just decided to quit on us and end the relationship with no warning, even after we talked about getting married eventually. While we were together, I made good friends with her older brother and his group of friends, and now I really don’t know what to do: I want to leave the state, but I also want to make things work with her. I still love her and all the people I’ve come to know after meeting her. Should I just stay or leave everything behind?
foundations. When you jump right into cohabitation, you’re not giving yourselves this time. So yes, I’d say leave be cause this girl is kind of a witch – an equal portion of responsibilit y can be laid at her feet – but lucky for you, she cut you loose. Move out, get a new job and make some new friends. You don’t have to leave the island to be happy: You just need to leave your ex-girlfriend. You don’t even need to leave her family behind, although that can get awkward at times. If her brother is still cool with you af ter the break-up, then what ’s the big deal? If, however, you really do want to leave Hawai‘i, then take this as the opportunit y it is. You can move away without any stressors except yourself and your own belongings, and you’re single again. You may have forgotten, but be ing single has its own special set of perks. You have a clean slate, friend – go scrawl some new girls’ digits all over it.

TO BE HEARD?
Well, Anon, I understand that you’ve become attached to your ex-girlfriend’s family. That’s very common, and usually it’s expected to some degree as well. In your case, however, you’ve taken it to an unhealthy extreme. I’m sure that there are numerous factors behind your decision to live with your girlfriend’s family, but it’s time to grow up and move on. While it may be that you’re a couch potato with zero intellectual skills, I seriously doubt it, which means you’re perfectly capable of holding down a job and paying rent for your own place. That being the case, what exactly were you thinking when you decided to move in with your woman and her parents? You said it was most of your relationship, so that means you moved in together fairly soon after you started dating. I could have told you that was a bad idea before it ever happened; lasting relationships time to p require q learn on one another and build strong bu

Here comes the bride KENT NISHIMURA / KA LEO O HAWAI‘I
Senior pitcher Kaia Parnaby ranks in the top three in five of Hawai’i’s single season pitching records. JEREMY NIT TA Associate Sports Editor
Coming into the season, senior pitcher Kaia Parnaby of the Rainbow Wahine softball team had a lot on her plate. Faced with the task of having to replace All-American Stephanie Ricketts, as well as anchor a pitching staff that consisted of two freshmen, it seemed like the deck was stacked against her. But instead, Parnaby, a native of Bilgola Plateau, New South Wales, Australia, has treated softball fans to one of the greatest single season performances in UH history. With three series left to play in the season, Parnaby has already broken UH single season records for wins (34), and with 299 strikeouts, she stands 26 behind Brooke Wilkins’ mark of 324 for the single season strikeout record. Parnaby also set the record for most strikeouts in a game when she struck out 17 against Syracuse on March 16. “It’s not something you aspire to, but you always want to be the best,” Parnaby said. “And just being able to leave the program with my name on the wall and solidiﬁed in Hawai‘i his-
tory feels like an accomplishment.” Paraby’s run may not be such an unforeseen occurrence, especially to those who know her the best. “Kaia knew that after three years of being the bridesmaid, basically that’s what I call her, she was going to get the ball a lot with two freshmen being on our pitching staff,” head coach Bob Coolen said. Kere Johanson, Parnaby’s head coach on her national team in Australia, also praised her. “The excellence Kaia is demonstrating with UH is and has been the target for all our national pitchers,” Johanson said. “We have been working towards this for the past two seasons, and it was awesome to see Kaia in such great form.” Parnaby has often been quoted praising her coaches for helping her to develop into the star she is this season. She refers to Coolen as “more of a friend than a coach” and credits Johanson for helping her develop her maturity. But perhaps most valuable to Parnaby was the close relationship she shared with her predecessor, Ricketts. “Stephanie’s not only a great player but also a great person,” Parnaby said. “Being able to sit
behind her for three years, I really couldn’t have asked for someone better to sit behind.” “It was more of we would lean on each other,” Ricketts said. “We’re very similar in age, even though we are separated in class. I did have a year of experience over her, but it was more that we both dealt with the same things. … It wasn’t she was always learning from me because I learned tons from her, more than I could have ever expected to learn.” With the end of the season and Parnaby’s collegiate career approaching, those close to her feel that this is not the end of her career as a player, but rather the start of a brilliant professional career. “She’ll be able to pitch well into her late 20’s and early 30’s with the way at ease that she pitches,” Coolen said. “She understands her body and understands her pitches. It’s just a development factor for her. She’s going to get savvy as she gets older, and she’s going to understand hitters and understand the game better, and she’s going to perfect the areas that aren’t perfected yet.” “With another good performance at the 2014 [World Championships], I would say professional teams will be lining up for Kaia,” Johanson said. “Kaia can and will achieve whatever she
decides to put her mind to. I like the way she is developing her mental strength as well as her physical conditioning.” “Kaia can go as far as she wants to go, and I think she knows that,” Ricketts said. “It’s a stressful time when you’re trying to make moves and ﬁgure out where you want to go after college. But I know that she has the ability, and she has the resources and everything to go as far as she wants to. I know that she really wants to keep playing, and she’s already on her national team. … I know she can go really far.”
