Celebrating Kalo By Catherine Cluett | Editor-In-Chief


n the ancient days of Hawaii, each of the islands’ estimated 500,000 people would eat one seven- to nine-pound kalo plant per day, according to Alton Arakaki, a Molokai extension agent with the University of Hawaii College Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR.) Ancient Hawaiians carefully selected more than 300 kalo varieties to ensure food security and successful growth in many environments. Today, only about 70 of those varieties still exist -- and without vigilant cultivation, that number may dwindle.

Last weekend, Molokai residents got the opportunity to select among more than 50 kalo varieties to grow in their own gardens, helping to carry on a tradition that can yield health, cultural under-

standing and economic benefits. The annual Taro Variety Field Day -- which has been held for the past 20 years -- offered educational lectures, taste testing of taro, poi and kulolo, a cooking contest, and harvesting your own kalo, free of charge. Ducking among lush kalo plants growing taller than their heads, kupuna and keiki, kane and wahine all gathered to collect huli (base of the root used to replant) for some of the rarest taro varieties. The plants are grown at the Molokai Applied Research and Demonstration Farm at UH Maui Community College Farm in Ho`olehua. “I loved it,” said attendee Chris Kaneakalau, leaving the field with his sons, laden with kalo plants. “It will be great to add to my collection.” He said it was his first time attend-

Island Air This Week’s Dispatch Cuts Flights Again By Catherine Cluett | Editor-In-Chief

ir carrier Island Air is once again decreasing the number of flights the carrier offers to Molokai -- this time to two per day, starting in November.

“The decision is pretty simple,” said Island Air CEO Paul Casey, who took the position two months ago. “We’re matching capacity with demand.” In March, the company cancelled all its flights between Molokai and Maui, and in May, decreased flights between Molokai and Honolulu from five to three per day. At that time, then-president Les Murashige told the Dispatch the Molokai schedule reduction was temporary. “Our intent is to put additional flights back [between Molokai and Honolulu] in August or September,” said Murashige in March. Now, the decrease from three to

two daily flights has caused various levels of outrage for Molokai customers, some of whom rely on the carrier’s larger 64-seat aircraft for wheelchair accessibility and other considerations. “This is really bad for Molokai,” said concerned resident Glenn Teves. “This limits options for residents with special needs, especially those requiring wheelchair access and those who have difficulties riding the smaller commuter planes.” When asked how he would respond to customers needing Island Air’s aircraft for wheelchair accessibility, Casey said “book on the flights that we are operating.” “Island Air’s timing of this as we head into the ‘busy’ season defies logic or reason,” said Molokai resident and business owner Teri Waros. “This is terrible news for all of us here on Molokai and will affect us all in one way or another.” Maunaloa kupuna Kehau Pule Island Air Continued pg. 2

riends, family, community, students and staff of Aka`ula School gathered last Friday evening to celebrate art as the sun set over Kalae`s cool hills. The annual event, held for the past seven years at the home of Bronwyn and Rikki Cooke, featured a lively display of student work as well as pieces donated by Aka`ula staff and board members and local artists -- all on sale to support the school.

Dara Lukonen, teacher and head of school, said the show represents the work of about two dozen of the school’s 35 students in grades five through 12. This year’s theme was sand art, guided by art teacher Paul Riel. “I did some examples and they came up with their own ideas,” said Riel, who collected different shades of sand from all over Molokai, along with guiding students to use colorful, purchased sand. “It’s great for kids to develop their creativity, see their work on the wall and Art Show Continued pg. 3

Yola Meyer Forbes: A Full Life By Malia Forbes Greaney

Recently, Molokai lost a special daughter; distinctive because she was of a generation mostly gone by and distinguished by the incredible path she chose to tread. Each road she took brought her home again. This island daughter was kupuna Yola Meyer Forbes, who was raised, later resided and died on her Ho`olehua homestead on Sept. 9, 2013, two months short of her 80th birthday. Born in 1933 in Kalae in a small shack her father built, which still stands near the highway, they moved a few years later what would be their family home for more than 75 years. Yola developed a value for education while attending Holomua School, and like many from Molokai, this value took her to Kamehameha Schools. Starting in seventh grade, she graduated with honors with the class of 1951. Her desire for education was fed by the demanding physical labor of homestead farming and pineapple fieldwork. Yola continued her formal education for almost 20 years. She began attending to Armstrong College in California at age 17, undeterred by not knowing anyone there when she left home. After obtaining her Associate of Arts degree, her education was interrupted for five years, 1953-58, when she came home to help her mother care for the family after her father suffered a heart attack. Her dad recovered, returned to work and Yola set out again, obtaining her Bachelor’s and Master’s from University of California at Berkeley, where she met her husband, David. They had one child and a baby on the way by time they earned their PhDs from UC Davis. With a doctorate in Physiology/Endocrinology, she raised her kids and shared her education, teaching med/pre-med students at Iowa State. Taking the only job she could get as a pregnant professor in the ‘60s, she labored such that she was twice voted University Science Professor of the Year.

Island Air

Continued From pg. 1 agrees, adding other concerns to the list. “The smaller planes… go by weight, and some people don’t want to catch the smaller airlines due to this, [which is] very embarrassing,” she said, via Facebook.

No Loss, Some Say

Neal Forbes (grandson), Malia Greaney (daughter), and Monica Sherlock (niece) in front of Yola’s Kalae birthplace. Yola wanted to move home, so entered and graduated in one of the first classes of University of Hawaii Law School in 1983. She firmly believed in using one’s gifts and accomplishments in service of others and for the betterment of community. During her 16-year career as an attorney on Molokai, she worked tirelessly to also provide care for her aged parents and ailing husband, ensure that her children attained higher education, and improve the quality of life for Molokai islanders. Her with efforts included Habitat for Humanity, Hikiola Cooperative and Chamber of Commerce. One of her proudest works was co-authoring the 1993 public United Church of Christ Apology to Native Hawaiians, recognizing complicity in the 1893 overthrow, to initiate a process of reconciliation and redress. This was followed by the U.S. Congressional Apology that President Clinton signed into law, and contained in current Hawaii State legislation, SR 55. Yola found great joy in her faith, life, farm, children and grandchildren. Honoring her extraordinary accomplishments, a scholarship in her name helps Molokai High and Intermediate School graduates meet their educational goals and support the future contribution to their families and community. On Oct. 5, Molokai will formally remember its humble servant leader and remarkable island daughter at 10 a.m. at Kalaiakamanu Hou Church.

While many travelers expressed concern with Island Air’s scheduling decision, other Molokai residents said they actually prefer flying other carriers, citing complaints with Island Air’s notorious delays. “I avoid Island Air as much as possible,” said Rita Woods via Facebook. “It seems there are frequent delays and cancelled flights.” Fellow Molokai Dispatch Facebook respondent Betts Cruz agrees. “I used to always fly Island Air,” Cruz wrote. “But they have become unreliable and un-flyable!” “People are flocking to the competitors for a reason, of which being on time is only one,” added LeAnna Dixon. “Cutting flights is not the answer...improving the service is.” Pule contacted Casey herself with her concerns about both the decreased schedule and the company’s frequently delayed flights. “Our on time performance lately has been not good and for that I apologize,” Casey wrote her via email. “We are looking to bring in a fleet of new reliable aircraft because if you can’t fly on time you shouldn’t be in the airline business.” Many customers couldn’t agree more. “I prefer to fly Island Air due to comfort, however, can you blame customers for running to Mokulele or Makani Kai with all the constant unreliable service provided by Island Air?” chimed in Mikee Gomes via Facebook. “I am hoping Hawaiian Air will come in soon to better service the customers who need or prefer larger planes.”

encing delays in the permitting process to begin their much-anticipated service, `Ohana by Hawaiian, to Molokai and Lanai. In June, Ann Botticelli, Hawaiian Airlines senior vice president of corporate communications and public affairs, said “we have several hurdles to clear – including some FAA [Federal Aviation Administration] approvals – before we can set a firm [start] date.” Last week, she confirmed the delays are continuing. “We have been stymied by sequestration and are working very hard to break the logjam,” Botticelli said via email. “We are very much looking forward to launching our service to Molokai, and hope we will get a resolution soon.” `Ohana by Hawaiian flights would use ATR 42 twin turboprop aircraft, the same model use by Island Air.

Other Carriers Increasing Service Casey pointed to an increase in competitor Mokulele Airline’s flights to Molokai as part of the reason for Island Air’s schedule reduction. “Mokulele has increased capacity a lot and our load factor has decreased,” he said. Mokulele now offers as many as 12 flights per day between Molokai and Oahu, according to their online schedule. Yet as Kehau Pule pointed out, passenger weight plays a factor in customer eligibility on the airline. A disclaimer on Mokulele’s website states, “Mokulele Airlines is unable to accommodate passengers whose body weight exceeds 350 pounds. For this reason, we reserve the right to deny boarding based on body weight.” Makani Kai Air, which operates the same Cessna Caravan aircraft as Mokulele, is relatively new to offering interisland service out of Ho`olehua Airport. The company has been serving Kalaupapa since January 2012, and began topside flights in June. The airline is offering $39 one-way fares during the month of October on its six to eight daily flights between topside Molokai and Honolulu.

ing the event, and enthusiastically called it a “good family experience.” He chose several varieties to bring home based on the taste tests. “It’s exciting – it’s hard to pass up this opportunity,” said another attendee on his second trip to his car from the field carrying back plants. Event speaker and cultural practitioner Miki`ala Pescaia offered advice on how to perceive the harvesting and growing process. “Treat every kalo plant like keiki – think about this like adoption,” she said. Arakaki said ancient Hawaiians carefully selected kalo varieties because “each one had something special.” “This kalo deserves a chance to survive and you’re giving it a chance,” he said. Arakaki added one of the day’s goals was to introduce local residents and farmers to kalo varieties they had probably never heard of before. “That’s the exciting part – this isn’t a museum collection, it’s a living collection,” said Carl Evanson, associate director of UH extension services. Historically, Arakaki said Native Hawaiians grew 100 percent of their own food, while today, we only grow about eight percent. Kalo represented a staple in the local diet. Arakaki said based on evidence pointing to the fact that people used to eat one kalo per day, ancient Hawaiians probably consumed 4500 calories per day – nearly double today’s recommended 2,000 calorie diet. Yet, he pointed out, ancient Hawaiians were much more healthy and fit than today’s average population. “It took a tremendous amount of energy to survive on the aina,” Arakaki said. Dr. Emmett Aluli, a speaker at the event, added that a cardiovascular study of Native Hawaiians he conducted

showed increased health by following a “pre-Captain Cook diet,” or what ancient Hawaiians ate. As part of the study, participants noted more energy, weight loss and decrease in conditions like high blood pressure when following the threeweek trial diet. The carbohydrates of kalo are digested differently from today’s popular carbs of rice and pasta, explained Aluli. As a complex carbohydrate, kalo is not broken down by the body into as much sugars as is rice. Along with its health benefits, kalo plays a significant economic role in Hawaii today. Arakaki said four million pounds of taro is harvested annually in Hawaii, yielding $24 million in gross revenue as value-added products such as poi and kulolo. A total of 950 jobs in the state are created from growing taro. But he believes there is potential for much greater production. Based on the historic evidence of Hawaii’s population eating 500,000 kalo plants per day, Arakaki said he estimates that 50 acres of kalo had to be harvested every day based on the estimate of 10,000 plants per acre of lo`i. That means 18,000 acres of kalo were harvested each year, he said. Along with gaining knowledge of the historic and cultural values of kalo, attendees of the Taro Variety Field Day also got the opportunity to connect with local kalo experts and statewide groups such as the Taro Security and Purity Task Force. Task Force member Penny Levin said the group was formed by legislation in 2008. The group of representatives from every island teach residents statewide about kalo growing and listen to people’s needs. The group works with UH CTAHR to conduct soil research, promote taro diversity and also plan to produce a video about the resurgence of kalo growing after a big decline in interest in the 1940s and 50s, she said.

Molokai Youth Take a Stand on Suicide Prevention HCCI and MCHC News Release

Hawaii’s Caring Communities Initiative (HCCI) is a statewide program focused on engaging youth leaders in suicide prevention awareness activities. HCCI is working with youth in six communities across the state of Hawaii and has also partnered with Molokai Community Health Center (MCHC) and Molokai General Hospital (MGH). The goal of this project is to empower the youth with knowledge and skills to make a positive impact in their community. We are proud to say we have a substantial number of Molokai youth that has been recruited to become advocates for suicide prevention. They are Momi Afelin, Noah Archulcto, Xrystina Bicoy, Hanalei Dudoit-Enos, Ekolu Greenleaf, Pauole Kaulia-Delacruz, Cody Kawano, Conan Kawano, Jayden Liu, Giesha Nunez, Misty Parker, Paul Parker, Genesis Querubin, Lace Reyes, Alexandria Simon and Michaella Tancayo. Our youth leaders have set a date to be trained in a nationally recognized, evidence-based program called the Connect Program for Suicide Prevention ( ). It will cover information on how youth can recognize someone who’s at risk for suicide and how to contact a trusted adult for help. They will gain important leadership skills, such as public-

speaking, creative, and organizational skills, by developing, planning, and implementing community awareness activities. Youth who are trained in suicide prevention are more likely to know what to do if their friend or someone they know needs help. If a youth leader feels any discomfort at anytime they will be referred to a trusted adult that will connect them to appropriate services. Through HCCI, several people have been trained to respond to youth in crisis including a Community Coordinator and several Support Staff. This project is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) by the Garrett Lee Smith Act. Kealoha Hooper works for Consuelo Foundation and Child and Family Services and is also the Community Coordinator for the HCCI here on Molokai with the help of MCHC staff Jessica Kaneakua, Rietta Tollefsen, Mokihana Spencer and Stephanie Napoli and from the MGH staff we have Haunani Kamakana and Melony Parker. Regardless of the reasons behind it, suicide is an extreme case of self-harm. There are numerous resources available in Hawaii. Talk to us, we can help! Contact Kealoha Hooper at 808646-0134, or Jessica Kaneakua at 808-660-2610,

take pride in it.” The sale gave students a chance to display their work in photographer Cooke’s own studio gallery, which he clears every year for the event. The evening also featured refreshments, music and mingling with friends and the student artists, along with the opportunity to acquire locally-created art. Student Kekeiki Cabanting’s piece, depicting black and white wolves, tells a mo`olelo on Hawaii Island. His art took about two weeks in the making and was


the first to sell that evening. “It feels good because our school bought it to represent the school,” he said, explaining Aka`ula only chooses a small portion of student art to purchase themselves. All proceeds from the sale go to the school, which holds several fundraisers every year to support Aka`ula’s financial aid program, as well as school supplies and equipment. Victoria Newberry, one of the founding teachers, said in addition to being a fundraiser, the annual art sale offers the opportunity for community networking for both staff and students, as well as for students “to see their artwork in a great setting.”

Hospital Celebrates Breast Cancer Awareness

Community Contributed

MGH News Release

Aloha, aunty here again. Since leaving Molokai to be closer to family and doctors on the mainland several months ago, I now live in an area of Washington State called Belfair, located on Hood’s Canal. Hood’s Canal was named by Captain George Vancouver after Lord Samuel Hood. When I was small, I was told that Captain Vancouver thought the canal was a short cut to the ocean but alas, it has no outlet, it’s actually a fjord of the Puget Sound. Just down the road a ways is my all-time favorite park, Twanoh (meaning “gathering place”) State Park. As small kids, my parents took us to camp there, we slept in sleeping bags on the rocks, battled mosquitos, cooked hotdogs, and had a great time. Now, you can’t even get

Starting Oct. 1, Molokai General Hospital (MGH) will be going PINK to celebrate National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an entire month of bringing awareness, prevention, education, and finding a cure. The MGH lobby areas and departments will be decorated in pink to recognize the month. MGH employees wearing jeans to work during the month of October will donate $15 per week to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Hawaii. MGH welcomes other organizations in the community to show support for the moms, sisters, aunts, cousins, nieces, and in some cases men and their families that have been affected by breast cancer. We make getting a mammogram quick and easy. All you need to do is call 553-3132 and we’ll be more than happy to help you schedule one today. When you arrive for your mammogram appointment, we will go over a quick questionnaire about your family history and breast health. We then have you change into one of our plush robes. We will then position your body and compress your breast gently to make the tissue uniform to be able to take the image. We take two pictures of each breast for a to-

tal of four images. Your mammogram will then be sent to the Queens’s Medical Center where a radiologist will review your images and generate a report of your results. Results are sent to your primary care physician and also to your home address. Have you ever said “No” to a mammogram because you couldn’t pay for it? If you did, we can help. In April of this year, MGH’s Breast Cancer Enhancement Program was among a selected group of Hawaii organizations awarded with 2013-2014 funding from the Hawaii Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to improve the continuity of breast care on Molokai and decrease the time interval from diagnosis to treatment. MGH’s Breast Cancer Enhancement Program provides the community with valuable education with an emphasis on early detection mammography screenings and patient navigation of breast cancer throughout the year. Molokai General Hospital has funding available from Susan G. Komen to assist uninsured and underinsured patients with the costs associated with mammograms (screening and diagnostic), travel, and treatment. For more information on breast health related financial assistance, please call 553-3102.

a paid parking pass. Boy, things have changed. There are oysters, crabs, shrimp and clams. The canal has been battling low oxygen levels from human activity, septic dump runoff, and logging along with slow water turnover. There is a need to restore the wetlands. The Canal has the third longest floating bridge in the U.S. I’ve never been on it. Bangor was in the news when the nuclear sub base was started. I’m not sure if it still has its protesters outside the gates. The area is very beautiful. People who drive here from Seattle think I live in the back and beyond. I’m slowly getting used to the climate. Well, there you go, just a few items about where I live. I miss everyone and treasure all my friendships on Molokai.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Are you good at haggling? Do you maybe even enjoy the challenge of negotiating for a better price, of angling for a fairer deal? The coming week will be a favorable time to make extensive use of this skill. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will thrive on having friendly arguments with just about everyone, from your buddies to your significant other to your mommy to God Herself. Everywhere you go, I encourage you to engage in lively discussions as you hammer out compromises that will serve you well. Be cheerful and adaptable and forceful.

The Molokai Dispatch •October 2, 2013 •


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I periodically hike alone into the serene hills north of San Francisco and perform a set of my songs for the birds, insects, squirrels, and trees. Recently I discovered that British comedian Milton Jones tried a similar experiment. He did his stand-up act for a herd of cows on a farm in Hertfordshire. I can’t speak for Jones’ motivations, but one of the reasons I do my nature shows is because they bring out my wild, innocent, generous spirit. Now is a good time for you to do something similar for yourself, Libra. What adventures can you undertake that will fully activate your wild, innocent, generous spirit? SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Are you anxious and agitated, afraid that you’re careening out of control? Is there a flustered voice in your head moaning, “Stop the insanity!”? Well, relax, dear Scorpio. I promise you that you no longer have to worry about going cray-cray. Why? Because you have already gone cray-cray, my friend. That is correct. You slipped over the threshold a few days ago, and have been living in Bonkersville ever since. And since you are obviously still alive and functioning, I think it’s obvious that the danger has passed. Here’s the new truth: If you surrender to the uproar, if you let it teach you all it has to teach you, you will find a lively and intriguing kind of peace.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In David Markson’s experimental novel Wittgenstein’s Mistress, the protagonist fantasizes about the winter she lived at the Louvre Museum in Paris. She says that to keep warm she made big fires and burned some of the museum’s precious artifacts. I’m hoping you won’t do anything remotely resembling that mythic event in the coming week, Taurus. I understand that you may be going through a cold spell -- a time when you’re longing for more heat and light. But I beg you not to sacrifice enduring SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): To give you the oracle beauty in order to ameliorate your temporary discomfort.

I urge GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Don’t say you want love,” you to memorize it or write it on a piece of paper that you will writes San Francisco author Stephen Sparks. “Say you want carry around with you everywhere you go. Say Dunn’s words the morning light through a paint-flecked window; say you as if they were your own: “Often a sweetness comes / as if want a gust of wind scraping leaves along the pavement on loan, stays just long enough // to make sense of what it and hills rolling toward the sea; say you want to notice, in means to be alive, / then returns to its dark / source. As for me, a tree you walk past every day, the ruins of a nest exposed I don’t care // where it’s been, or what bitter road / it’s traveled as the leaves fall away; a slow afternoon of conversation in / to come so far, to taste so good.” a shadowy bar; the smell of bread baking.” That’s exactly the CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In her book Teaching a oracle I want to give you, Gemini. In my opinion, you can’t Stone to Talk, Annie Dillard apologizes to God and Santa Claus afford to be generic or blank in your requests for love.

Global Gardening for Good By Joe Kennedy

Let’s play a little game. Picture our seven billion people on planet Earth, or even half that many, involved in growing food. Currently, a very small percentage is growing food. For just a minute, let’s forget the large-volume, mechanized producers and petroleum-based chemicals and conventional fertilizers. Could even a half of Earth’s people sustainably produce enough food without machines to feed all of us? I believe we could, if we really wanted to -- and it can start in our own backyards on Molokai. Land reform would have to happen first. I believe that, as human beings, we are all entitled to a small piece of land and enough water to grow our own food. Some people who are good at it could have a little more, but nobody could hog a whole lot at the detriment of others. People would have to be taught the basic techniques of growing food. In additional learning from each other in the garden, knowledge can be gained and shared with of technology such as cell phones and the Internet. Existing 2,000-plus-acre orchards could be used as a hub for fertile, sustainable, production using natural methods. Workers would live in the orchards managing their food scrapes, manure, animals, wildlife, nitrogen-fixing plants in a truly sustainable, nature-based system that makes soil fertile. No petroleum-based pesticides would be used. Perennial vegetables would be substituted for energy gobbling annuals. This would eliminate the need for tilling, purchasing fertilizer from faraway plac-

es, and so on. Food would be used in exchange for other goods and services, but also sold for money. Starvation would be a thing of the past. The food system we have now is based on large corporations and land-wealthy individuals controlling and using machinery and indiscriminate poisons, causing our environment and people to be unhealthy. Our own U. S. is a country in debt to another country, China. Based on what just one person can plant in one hour, I believe we could save trillions of dollars in shipping costs of food if most of our population would grow their own gardens. Hawaii imports 90 percent of its food, while on Molokai, 98 percent of the food found in stores and restaurants in imported. Why are so many governments, cities and individuals in such socially damaging debt? Could things be turned around if millions went back to farming, forest gardening, and cottage industries? Is more technology, gadgetry, the pursuit of luxury going to improve the environment? It hasn’t yet. In fact, the urban lifestyle and the rampant consumerism of using plastics, metal, and synthetic chemicals is fouling large parts of the ocean. Soil and pesticides from farming and ranching plus things like deadly nuclear waste from Fukushima is also happening on an increasingly large scale. There are several things we can do. Educate everybody you can about what’s toxic and what is not. Don’t buy the stuff that won’t decompose, break down, and rot. And make gardening and farming fun for everybody, with music, contests, games, and prizes for our planters and harvesters.

Weekly Puzzle Answers

FoodCorps Continued From pg. 1

Phifer, a Molokai local and current biology student at University of Hawaii Maui College, Molokai, and Simon Mendes, a recent English graduate from Boston University. They are focusing their efforts on Molokai High School (MHS), Molokai Middle School (MMS) and Maunaloa Elementary School. According to the press release, schools selected needed to be committed to constructing garden-based nutritional education programs, as well as increasing their hands-on learning and core curriculum connections. “We have a school-wide focus on sustainability,” said Maunaloa Elementary School Principal Joe Yamamoto. “We know [setting up the gardens] will take a while… but everything is slowly falling in its place and it should be exciting for the kids.” FoodCorps is partnering with Sust`ainable Molokai, a nonprofit that works with the community to find modern strategies for sustainability while adhering to cultural traditions. The last month has been about building relationships and collaborating with school administrators, teachers and farmers, said Phifer.

Getting Gardens into Schools Phifer said they have begun building raised garden beds at MMS for any teacher interested to incorporate gardens in their class. “Our challenge on Molokai is getting teachers and parents involved,” she said. Because teachers have no time for extra activities during the school day, Phifer said they offer to give classes short lessons incorporating subjects such as math, science, and history into gardening. Their first math lesson was last Friday to a seventh grade class. Mendes said they divided the garden beds into 12 sections and worked with fractions and percentages to plant basil, green onions, tomatoes and carrots. “The kids seem like they really want to do it,” said Phifer. “Even if they had never eaten the vegetable before, they saw it being planted and know that they can eat it later and that’s the coolest thing ever.” For MHS, FoodCorps will work with an existing food forest, a garden that mimics a woodland ecosystem but instead uses edible trees, shrubs, perennials and annuals. According to school garden coordinator Fred Richardson, though the garden was created two years ago, he is still trying to get more students interested and involved. “What we’re really trying to do here

is work with students and show them that this is something that really works,” said Richardson. FoodCorps will also try to provide Maunaloa with raised garden beds, however with tight budgets, there isn’t any wiggle room for extra spending. Along with writing grants and receiving donations, Mendes said they have been considering introducing the school to the Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program (FFVP) -- a federal program that provides free fresh fruits and vegetables to students in schools with high reduced lunch percentage rates -- as another way to get produce into the school. “We just want to introduce the kids to more vegetables,” said Mendes.

Challenges in the Cafeteria The ultimate goal of FoodCorps is to get the food produced in school gardens and local farms onto cafeteria tables, but strict Department of Education (DOE) regulations restrict the use of any food that hasn’t been U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified. Local, state and national organizations are working with legislation to make local produce available to students, and Mendes said the process is long and arduous. “What I want is like back in the days, Molokai High School had their own sustainable living,” said Phifer. “They had their own dairy farm, their own agriculture land, and they provided the school with their own food. They could put food in the cafeteria, they could sell their milk to the community, and now it’s illegal to have that. So my mission is to bring it back.”

Community Outreach FoodCorps held their first community workday last Saturday at the MHS agriculture field to get the community more involved with gardening. Volunteers helped weed the area and planted a variety of vegetables such as pumpkins, squash, radishes, broccoli, and carrots. “I thought it went really well,” said Mendes. “The people who came were really excited and I hope we can get more people involved next time.” Harmonee Williams, development director for Sust`ainable Molokai, said FoodCorps plans to schedule a workday every fourth Saturday of the month in addition to their work during the school day. “It’s exciting to hear what they’re planning and it’s what our office dreams about doing,” said Williams. “To hear them on the ground talking about what they’re going to be doing with the kids and planting gardens, it’s exciting.”

Mo’omomi Lobster DNA Project In the upcoming months, Hui Malama o Mo`omomi will be conducting a lobster DNA study to gather information to address a lobster recovery plan for Mo`omomi. As we all are aware, the lobster population at Mo`omomi has decreased to a point where the use of lobster nets have to be banned and we appreciate those who have complied with this rule. We welcome anyone who is interested to join us in learning what we do to help conserve our precious resources. All lobsters caught will be measured

Despite the fact that Kealoha v Machado was heard by the Hawaii State Supreme Court five months ago, our longtime mechanism of political denial is packing it up, closing shop. But not without first making sure that the longtime scheme of undermining “native Hawaiians’” self-determination is funded by the very peple who are the recognized descendant, by both of our Abbot and Costello governments “the betterment of the conditions of native Hawaiian” which gave standing for the creation OHA.

Dear Community of Molokai, I would like express my apologies for any misunderstanding or confusion regarding the Christian students that were going door-to-door in your community at the end of July. They were a part of a program that is called “Youth Education Scholarships.” The students offer free services to the community and also promote health physically and spiritually by leaving Christian literature on a donation basis. The funds go to helping them go to Christian schools, and the books have been a blessing to countless numbers of people in Hawaii and across the globe. The program is a ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist Church of Hawaii and I am sorry if that was not clear in their presentation. We train the students on how to identify themselves, but some-

Living here on Molokai, we are all aware of the over-population of the feral cats. We see them everywhere we go in town, along the highways and in the woods. My heart goes out to each one of them knowing that they are hungry and suffering. Have you ever gone to sleep hungry, not knowing if you will find food tomorrow or the next day? Most people say, “Oh, well let them catch mice.” It’s a scientific fact that one cat has to catch 22 mice a day just to survive. They only eat the heart and lungs, according the Animal Planet channel. Molokai desperately needs a spay/ neuter catch and release program to help keep the animal population down. A catch/spay/neuter/release program wouldn’t do much to help today’s feral cats, but over time their numbers would great decrease. If you are interested in helping, please call the Molokai Humane Society at 558-0000. They need help locating pockets of feral cats and dogs and there will be a training program for volunteers on Oahu in November. It’s common practice to dump unwanted animals on the east end to fend for themselves. Would you take a twoyear-old child you no longer want out to the ends and to fend for himself? The life span of a hungry, abandoned, unloved animal is only a short time but it is a miserable and sad life. A dog or goat feels pain when he is kicked or beaten just as we would feel pain.

Sincerely, Westney White Director Youth Education Scholarships/Hawaii Youth Rush

And now the recognized people, including their descendants, are threatened with the loss of benefits, citizenship, etc. should they refuse to partake in this long-sought scam that continues down the same path of undermining “native Hawaiian” self-determination, by signing the Kanaiolowalu Declaration. Kupuna O Ka Lahui Hawaii, stand fast?

All Creatures Great and Small Opinion by Rev. Jean Taloa

There are also many tame house cats whose owner has moved off-island or died. These pets would make excellent companions for a kind-hearted animal lover. Our animals are a gift from God. They are only on loan to us. We will be judged on how well we can care for and love this gift. Psalm 1:36-25: “He gives food to every living creature. His love continues. And so, we too must learn to be God-like and care for all the creatures, great and small.” The following is part of a poem published in the Family Circle Magazine in 1934 by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, called “The Tramp Cat.” Poor little beggar cat, hollow-eyed and gaunt Creeping down the street and through the woods like a ghost of want. Kecked and beat by thoughtless people bent on cruel play. What a sorry life you lead, whether night or day… Shrinking at the outstretched hand, knowing only blows. Wretched little beggar cat, born to suffer woes. Tortured, teased and chased by dogs through the lonely night… Dying in the street at last, starved to death at that, Picked up by the scavengers -- poor tramp cat.

Often people wonder why we would come to such a small island for such a short time and spend all the money to do that. Well, to tell the truth, the program makes no money in taking the students to small islands like Molokai and Lanai, but we go anyway because our purpose is not to make money, but to share a message that has touched our heart and others here in Hawaii.
