Campus implements sustainable projects TASHA M ERO Contributing Writer Buildings and Grounds Management has put out more than 100 recycling bins throughout the Mānoa campus to improve the school’s sustainability. Director of Buildings and Grounds Management Roxanne Adams wanted to increase the campus’ recycling and came up with the idea to implement the new recycling bins. “On the outside of the buildings we have carts, and the green ones are for paper, newspaper, colored paper,” Adams said. “We use a blue bin for glass, plastic and aluminum. We also have big blue dumpsters – that’s for cardboard.” The Building and Grounds department moves all waste on campus, according to Adams. The Facilities Management department provided the funds to put out the recycling bins. The landscaping department’s website currently shows locations for the exterior recycling bins. Recycling bins in the interior of the buildings have appeared recently and are not yet posted on the website. “We will be putting out a list of what buildings have interior recycling bins once we’ve got everything situated,” Adams said.

LANDSCAPE NEAR H A M I LT O N L I B R A RY Buildings and Grounds Management is also planning to look at expanding the landscaping near Hamilton Library. “We’ll be planting more trees,” landscaping manager Heidi Bornhorst said. “We’re using recycled green-waste for mulch and soil improvement.” Adams estimates that this plan will come into effect around this time next year. “That’s still in its infancy, so that’s something we’re going to continue to work towards,” Adams said. When the project begins, Adams said students are invited to get involved. “Our big projects like that, we usually make it a service-learning project,” Ad-

ams said. “We do a call-out to students, faculty and staff to come and help.” Although there are different sustainability initiatives on the Mānoa campus, psychology major Storme Eisenhour doesn’t think they’re showcased well. “It’s (sustainability) definitely an issue that needs to be brought up, but I don’t hear about it a lot,” Eisenhour said. “Make people aware of it. Bring attention to it. I don’t hear a lot about what we’re doing.”

ADOPT A LANDSCAPE According to Bornhorst, Buildings and Grounds Management is also working with students in Natural Resources and Environmental Management to help improve the campus. “We’re working with students who want to adopt a landscape,” Bornhorst said. A landscape is defined as the area exterior to the buildings on campus. People can adopt any amount of area, as long as the landscape council approves it. “Anybody can adopt a landscape (to) help sustain the campus,” Bornhorst said. Repair and maintenance supervisor Alan Nakanishi said there’s an application process one has to go through if they’re interested in adopting a landscape on campus. “You have to come up with a plan, and then it has to be presented to the landscape committee,” Nakanishi said. “So they’ll review that and if they feel that it will be beneficial to the campus, then they will approve it and then they’ll work with whoever submitted it and try to incorporate it.” According to Adams, there are no fees for filling out the application to adopt a landscape. For anyone interested in helping the campus and adopting a landscape, applications can be found online on the landscaping department’s website.

‘Ilocandia’: a visual experience of Ilocos Sur A LDEN A LAY VILLA Staff Writer As part of Filipino-American History Month, Hamilton Library is hosting “Ilocandia,” an exhibit that features 50 photographs, six lectures and a fi lm depicting Ilocos Sur, a northern region in the Philippines. “ This exhibit focuses on the Ilocos region and it shows variations of the different cultures,” Honolulu city council member Joey Manahan said. “Each variation of Ilocos Sur culture has its own kind of knowledge and wisdom, and it’s shown through these documented photographs and film.” David Leprozo Jr., a Baguio based artist and photojournalist, said “Ilocandia” is dedicated to the first Ilocano migrants — the majority from Ilocos Sur — who came to Hawai‘i. “My son and I took these photographs of the rich provinces, people, places, daily life scenes of Ilocos Sur,” Leprozo said. According to Manahan, Honolulu and Baguio, Philippines, are sister cities. Prior to this

exhibit, it had been a decade since both cities participated in a “sister-city activity.” “This is the first sister-city activity we have done with Baguio since the Harris administration,” Manahan said. “Dave is a friend of mine, and I wanted to do something here for Filipino-American history month. This is basically what we came up with. Dave took these pictures just for this exhibit.” Art Tibaldo, an independent fi lmmaker, Baguio based artist and journalist, is in Hawai‘i for the second time, as part of a series of lectures regarding Ilocos Sur-themed fi lms. “The first time I was here, I was invited to give a lecture at the East-West Center,” Tibaldo said. “(On this trip) I’m involved with several lectures here at the university regarding Ilocos Sur films.” As part of his lecture series, Tibaldo is presenting a low budget indie fi lm that tells a story that took place in Vigan, Ilocos Sur during W WII involving a love affair between a Filipino woman and a Japanese soldier. “ The reason why the town of Vigan is preserved today is the refusal of the Japanese soldier to destroy it,” Tibaldo said.


When the exhibit ends, the majority of the photographs will be donated to UH M ā noa. “That’s something I really wanted to do for Filipino-American History Month,” Manahan said. “It’s really a time for us to celebrate our heritage, our pride, our country.” Manahan discovered his cultural identity at UH Mā noa, when he opened a book on Filipino history on the third floor of Hamilton library. “It was right here on the third f loor when I discovered who I was,” Manahan said. “I think it’s very important for students to have a sense of place. I think that sense of place comes from knowing who you are: finding and choosing your identity.” Manahan encourages all students to seek out their cultural identity. “Finding your culture might not be for everybody, but there’s a lot to learn, a lot of great knowledge,” Manahan said. Photographs of “Ilocandia” can be found on the fi rst, third and fourth fl oor of Hamilton Library. The exhibit will run until Nov. 20.

A ‘wild party’ at Earle Ernst BEN SAUNDERS Staff Writer

Kennedy Theatre’s “Wild Party” lives up to its name. Written by Andrew Lippa and based on the ’20s poem of the same name, “Wild Party” made its Hawai‘i debut last weekend with great acclaim, prompting a second weekend of shows to be added into the run of the play. Director and MFA candidate Brittni Shambaugh took the opportunity to direct her fi rst-ever musical, and shows have sold out through the fi rst run. “Wild Party” is not your average musical. Although there are a few peppy show tunes thrown in, these are not the focus of the show. Rather, character interaction is emphasized, especially when singing the complex harmonies and cacophony that accompanies most of the show’s pieces. The lead actors prove well-prepared for their almost three hour non-stop stint on the stage.

P L O T OV E RV I E W Queeny, played by Leiney Rigg, decides to throw a party

to rekindle her relationship with Burrs, played by Garrett Taketa. Their ill-conceived plan goes even further awry when guests Kate (Kyle Scholl) and Black (Lavour Addison) show up, forming a series of love triangles that culminates in a musical and grim disaster. Not only do these four leads have complex singing roles, they are also onstage for the majority of the twoand-a-half hour show. Fortunately, these four partygoers prove able singers and performers and manage to capture the audience’s affections early on with believable acting and good chemistry between them. However, the party is so much more than four actors on the stage; a full ensemble cast is also present for much of the show. When not singing or dancing, these party invitees can be found out of the light, usually getting progressively more intoxicated. This adds another degree of believability to the performance and mimics what one might fi nd at a real party: people drinking, celebrating and even passing out. It is elements like these that allow the show to seem less like a performance and more like an ac-

tual party going on right before the audience’s eyes. There is always something exciting happening at the “Wild Party,” which more than makes up for the show’s long runtime. The show draws near the dangerous territory that certain musicals enter, but “Wild Party” shines through with powerful acting and vocal performances from all involved. While it would have been nice to see more interaction from the supporting cast, this is a minor trifle with what is otherwise a well-organized and thought-out program. The show is recommended for ages 16 and older due to shocking moments and mature themes, but “Wild Party” delivers on its promise of being a different kind of musical. It is raunchy, sexy and fun— and everyone is invited.

R AT I N G :

“The Wild Party” is back for another week with additional shows on Nov. 1 and 2 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 3 at 2 p.m.


The musical “Wild Party” is based off a poem by Joseph Moncure March.

Does the word “D.A.R.E.” ring a bell? For many, it brings back memories of the time in elementary, middle or high school when police officers came into their classrooms to teach about drug abuse resistance. Although the intended purpose of this program is positive, much evidence has risen through the years questioning the efficacy of the program. Many studies conclude that D.A.R.E has little to no effect on children.

Drug Abuse Resistance Education, known as D.A.R.E., was established in 1983. It aims to educate the youth about preventive involvement with drugs, alcohol, gangs and violence. According to its website, its mission is to “teach students good decision-making skills to help them lead safe and healthy lives.” The 10- to 17-week program is taught by police officers who go through more than 80 hours of extensive special training in areas such as child development and teaching techniques. The D.A.R.E curriculum has been implemented in hundreds of schools throughout the United States and in some international schools. It has become somewhat of a rite of passage for many school-aged children.

CRITICISM TOWARD D.A.R.E. There are a number of groups and communities opposing the D.A.R.E.

program as mounting data from various researchers reveal its ineffectiveness. Many argue that it does not have long-term effects and has little influence on the students as they get older. Other findings report that those who had received D.A.R.E. classes when they were younger were just as likely to either smoke, drink and/or use drugs as those who didn’t participate in D.A.R.E. In fact, in a study published in the Chicago Tribune in 1999, 2,000 students were surveyed 10 years after their completion of the D.A.R.E. program. 46 percent of these students reported using marijuana, 23 percent of them reported that they smoked at least half a pack of cigarettes a day, about 30 percent admitted to ingesting 40 or more alcoholic drinks and 24 percent revealed using other types of drugs within the past year before the survey was taken. Despite the data suggesting that the D.A.R.E. program has little effect, it is still being carried out in about three out of every four school districts in the United States. Those in favor of D.A.R.E. believe there are many benefits that come with this program, including the idea that police officers become more “humanized” in the eyes of young students. Since they see the officers in a friendlier nature, a type of rapport is established between the children and the police officer. Also, many parents, teachers and students are strong supporters of the D.A.R.E. program because they feel that it is indeed effective. Nonetheless, it is hard to ignore the hard evidence provided by many

researchers, which clearly reveal that the D.A.R.E. program is not doing what it intended to do. Studies conducted by The Partnership at, a nonprofit organization, indicate that the number of teens who reported using ecstasy has risen from six percent in 2008 to 10 percent in 2010. A report by the National Survey on Drug Use and Health states that the use of marijuana and heroin amongst people ages 12 and up has increased by nearly 300,000 since 2007.


The price tag to continue the D.A.R.E. program is high, and many people feel that there are better alternatives. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, a federal agency in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has established a list of 66 other organizations they believe are more effective. Also, the D.A.R.E. curriculum was designed as a one-track program and therefore fails to address the fact that each community and school district in the United States and internationally is different. It is hard to create a standard program that will be a perfect fit for everyone. The D.A.R.E. program should not be the only choice for schools to consider. Parents and community members should work hand in hand to create or determine a curriculum that best tackles the problem specific to their neighborhood – and they should pick one that leaves a lasting impression on their audiences. | Nicholas Smith Editor

six seniors leave legacy of passion and intensity K EN R EYES Senior Staff Writer

As the season comes to a close, the Rainbow Wahine soccer team will bid farewell to six seniors who have experienced the transitions the program has made through the years. Forward Skye Shimabukuro, midfielders Bree Locquiao and McKenzie McGoldrick and defenders Karli Look, Malé Fresquez and Chelsea Miyake comprise this season’s senior class, which head coach Michele Nagamine said was “a really fun and very diverse group.” “They come from all different areas,” Nagamine said. “They each have a different story. But they’ve really helped us to turn our program around and get us back on a winning track.”

TRANSITIONING Before Nagamine took over the women’s soccer program in 2011, the seniors played under former head coach Pinsoom Tenzing. They eventually adjusted and grew under Nagamine’s system and helped her “turn the program around.” “ T hey really didn’t k now what to make of me when I came in their sophomore year, and I think they gave me an oppor t unit y to k ind of lay dow n the system that I wanted to play and the philosophies that I wanted to share,” Nagamine sa id. “ T hey believed in me and what I was t r y ing to do.” Fresquez, a native of Downey, Calif., reciprocated Nagamine’s comments. “We’ve experienced the transition this program has had, so I think it made the big difference between then and now,” she said.


In her tenure as a soccer player, Miyake described this year as being “a lot more competitive … than all the previous years.” Hawai‘i has totaled for 15 yellow cards this season, which is five more than the previous year. Also, the team managed to evade earning any red cards in the past two years, but accumulated four this year alone. Nagamine attributes this to their schedule, which included a few of last year’s NCA A qualifiers, defending regular season Big West champion Cal State Fullerton and tournament champion Cal State Northridge, the ‘Bows’ final opponent this season.

“We come up against really good competition, and soccer in general is a very physical contact sport,” she said. “We happen to be a little bit smaller in stature, so sometimes teams think they can muscle us around just because we’re a little bit shorter. We promptly show them that is not the case.” Shimabukuro also credited the team’s aggressive game play to its passion for the sport, which drives the team to work hard for each other. “I don’t think we’re overly physical,” she said. “We just play, and we’re competitive. We play with a lot of passion, so it’s not necessarily physical. We just go hard.”

L E AV I N G A N I M P R E S S I O N The seniors are now passing on the torch and the knowledge that they have gained through the years to the underclassmen, with whom they have created a bond. “We’ve taught them on and off the field,” Shimabukuro said. “We’ve given them advice and that’s why we’re such a close team this year.” They also shared about some of the unforgettable moments they had with the team, expressing how much they will miss playing for the local crowd. “I will miss playing at Waipi‘o and the stadium and everybody, the fans,” Fresquez said. “I think that’s big pretty time out here in Hawai‘i, and I don’t think I could have gotten that experience anywhere else.” Nagamine also praised their growth and dedication to the program and helping the younger players. She described this year’s seniors as being a “three-dimensional class,” which is what she will remember about them the most. “ T hey really lef t a great impression on our younger players and have taught them how to be good teammates and to really put the team before themselves,” she said. “I really look back fondly on this group. I think they’ve grown up a lot since I’ve been here, and it ’s nice to see the progress they’ve made as not only soccer players but as people.”
