odd Ragsdale, a boat builder, musician and fervent collector, wanted to try something different after retirement. Six months ago, he fused his passion for music and fondness for collecting ukuleles into a business to share both his hobbies with Molokai. Thus was born Molokai Music Maker, where he sells handmade and vintage ukuleles from Hawaii, the mainland, Indonesia and beyond. “It’s like a peanut butter and jelly

sandwich,” said Ragsdale, a Honolulu native, while plucking one of his many ukuleles, improvising a melody at Hotel Molokai’s weekly Friday market. “You can’t have the peanut butter without the jelly. You come to Hawaii, you should have a ukulele.” Ragsdale began collecting a decade ago, and has continued his quest while starting his business. He began selling ukuleles at Hotel Molokai’s Christmas Sale last year and decided to turn his hobby into a lucrative avenue after a positive

response from the community. You can find him behind a table scattered beautifully with polished, rich ukuleles every Friday at Hotel Molokai Kupuna Friday Nights from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. He also sets up shop at the weekly Saturday Kaunakakai Market from 9 a.m. to noon. Many local ukulele talents join Ragsdale at his booth on Saturday mornings for an impromptu jam session full of seasoned aunties and uncles and novice keiki. “I like the novice, beginner to inter-

Lawsuit Filed in Loretta Fuddy's Death By Bianca Moragne | Staff Writer

he brother of former state Department of Health Director Loretta Fuddy said in a lawsuit filed last Monday that a faulty engine is to blame for the Makani Kai plane’s ocean landing off Kalaupapa last December that caused his sister ’s death. According to The Associated Press (AP), Lewis Fuddy Jr. is suing engine manufacturer Pratt & Whitney Canada Corporation over the Dec. 11 crash that killed his sister. The pilot and seven other passengers on the flight survived without major injuries, but Loretta Fuddy died in the water after exiting the sinking Cessna Grand Caravan. Autopsy results concluded she died of cardiac arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, following the crash. A federal investigation of the accident by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has yet to be released on what exactly caused the

plane crash. However, Richard Fried, the Honolulu attorney representing Fuddy's family and estate, claims Pratt & Whitney Canada knew about a fault in the engine’s turbine blades and did nothing to correct the problem. According to the AP, the lawsuit contends the manufacturer was aware of a tendency of the turbine blades to stretch when heated, which then causes the engine to lose power, but neglected to take action. A preliminary NTSB report confirms engine loss of engine power. “The pilot stated that shortly after takeoff, a loud bang was heard and there was a total loss of power,” states the NTSB report, adding that the pilot, Clyde Kawasaki, then glided the aircraft into the water. “All the passengers put on their life preservers and

fter three months of operations on Molokai, `Ohana by Hawaiian is expanding its flights from Molokai to include a daily flight to Maui and a fourth flight to Honolulu this summer. Beginning July 8, `Ohana will offer a round trip flight to Kahului, scheduled to depart from Molokai to Maui at 8:33 a.m., and returning from Maui to Molokai at 4:41 p.m. The airline is also adding an additional round trip to Honolulu for the summer period only. Currently operating three flights daily since its launch of Molokai and Lanai services in March, `Ohana will add a flight departing Honolulu for Molokai at 7:45 a.m., and from Molokai to Honolulu at 5:30 p.m. “Since launching `Ohana by Hawaiian earlier this year, we’ve received overwhelmingly positive response and robust demand for more service between the islands to connect our communities,” said Hadden Watt, `Ohana by Hawaiian managing director. “We are excited to answer the call for more service from our customers, offering them more convenience and flexibility when planning their neighbor island travel.” In addition, the company -- whose flights aboard three ATR-42 aircraft are operated by Empire Airlines -- will also begin service between Kahului, Hilo and Kona. In an announcement last week, `Ohana stated it plans to connect more islands and offer kama`aina and visitors more options and flexibility for neighbor island travel. Molokai Dispatch Facebook commenters had positive feedback for the airline’s announcement. “Perfect, thank you `Ohana,” wrote Vicki Underwood, while some others expressed the hope the airlines would keep their airfare down. “I think it's great!” commented Laura Sharp. “I hope they keep the prices affordable to the average person!” Maryann Manintin echoed the sentiment. “I love [the news] and don't forget us on Kauai, we want to go Molokai too… let’s see some favorable prices.” One-way flights between Molokai and Honolulu on `Ohana average between $70 and $115, while airfare on Molokai’s other airlines runs cheaper -$50 for Makani Kai and between $49 and $90 on Mokulele. Still, `Ohana offers some benefits. Its larger aircraft afford easier wheelchair and handicapped accessibility and no passenger weight restrictions, while HawaiianMiles members can redeem and accumulate miles on the neighbor island flights.

Why I Fly with Makani Kai. When asked why she flies Makani Kai, Lauri cited several reasons, “I like the airplane…those windows make it almost like a tour…the pilots are nice and there’s a sense of hospitality here that’s very calming.” One of ten siblings, Lauri was first exposed to Makani Kai when her family chartered one of our aircraft and she came away impressed by the experience. “I appreciate the aloha here,” she says.

Sust` aina ble Molokai has published the second piece in our Molokai-pedia project the Molokai Energy assessment. This assessment follows Agricultural Needs Assessment that helped to inform the needs in the community for food security and farmer economic security. Due to the information gathered, we are able to pursue the development of a Molokai Food hub that will be able to help local farmers gain access to local markets on island, help our students by gaining access to local food through the cafeteria and eventually establishing off island markets for our farmers long term economic security. It is our intent that the Energy Assessment, in the same way as the Ag Assessment has, help to inform community and other stakeholders on the needs of Molokai as it relates to energy. As a resource with historic, baseline and survey information, we hope it will be a starting point for discussion. We are now ready to move forward to the next step of building an energy-secure community by bringing the assessment to the community in a series of meetings, working groups where it can be

They are also available at the Kuha`o Business Center Library to be borrowed, and we will be giving them to community members at the meetings. We would like to say mahalo and extend our appreciation to our community on Molokai who helped us by taking over 300 surveys, participating in 40 individual interviews and focus groups, countless grocery store and post office conversations in the past two years. The next meeting is to be determined in the next few weeks and we will post flyers around the island, as well as post it in the Dispatch calendar as soon as the next date is set. Please do not hesitate to call Emillia Noordhoek with questions, suggestions and comments or to request your energy assessment. You can download a copy of the Ag assessment on our website, sustainablemolokai.org.

mediate, those are my favorite people because they’re the ones that have that twinkle in their eye and always want to learn,” Ragsdale said. “They learn at such a fast rate and then after that it’s the endurance of practice.” For Ragsdale, the ukulele can be learned at any age. As a musician himself, who plays the keyboard, trumpet and harmonica, Ragsdale said he wants to diminish the stigma that you have to be musically gifted to play an instrument and encourages customers to “learn something new, especially when it can be lots of fun.” “I feel that the ukulele is the perfect instrument,” he said. “From its petite size and Hawaiian musical history as a primary accompaniment to the songs and dances of our islands, to its versatility in today's worldwide musical applications, with virtuosos like Jake Shimabukuro and Aldrine Guerrero.”

ukulele is a 1920s Jonah Kumalae, still in mint condition. Ragsdale said he primarily markets on Molokai and won’t travel off island to sell -- only to buy handmade instruments. “The difference between hand and factory-made ukuleles is that with handmade you have to some guy working on the instrument from start to finish,” Ragsdale said. “That craftsman develops a personal connection to the instrument. Ultimately, you get better quality control.” Molokai Music Maker has a wellrounded supply of ukuleles, from the standard sized soprano and intermediate sized concert, to the full sized tenor. He also carries complimentary accessories such as strings, cases, tuners and amplifiers. His ukuleles start at $40 for the most basic and simplest model, and peak to several hundred dollars for a performance level instrument. He offers rentals, a consignment program and a copy of Israel Kamakawiwo`ole’s “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” to new customers. In addition to selling ukuleles, Ragsdale sells violins for $50 to $100.

The Business of Music

Music in the Making

Ragsdale said he averages about two dozen ukulele sales per month between Molokai and on Ebay. “I’m always offering a fresh look with something new in stock every week,” Ragsdale said. “I change at least 25 percent of my ukuleles weekly, so everybody has a reason to stop by and take a look.” Ragsdale has a collection of about 50 traditional, advanced design acoustic or electric and special vintage collector ukuleles, some dating more than 70 years, on display at the Molokai Music Maker table. His inventory includes ukuleles in an extraordinary array of shapes, colors and sizes, including a dowdy one, with a brass casing and a red rose delineated on the front panel, which looks like banjo. The ukuleles are fashioned out of combinations of mahogany, Hawaiian Koa wood, spruce and other hardwoods. The spruce and mahogany combination ukuleles deliver a bright and cheery sound when strummed, whereas solid mahogany reverberates with warm and melodic sounds, he said. Ragsdale has secured several sources for his ukulele supply, from major suppliers that stock over 4,000 ukuleles, to builders and state sales. He carries close to a dozen Kamaka ukuleles, his favorite brand, in stock, starting from 1930 with a ukulele made in each succeeding decade through 1980. Ragsdale’s oldest playable

Despite making a hobby of collecting ukuleles long ago, Ragsdale said he only started learning to play the instrument a last year and has just begun experimenting with constructing himself. His cigar box ukulele, a creative variant that isn’t for sale, is Ragsdale’s only creation so far. However, he said he will start making traditional ukuleles next summer when the wood is prepared. It can take six months to several years for the wood to cure, or preserve. Once the wood is cured it can take an additional two to three months to build the instrument. Add on another several weeks to apply coats of the polish, roughly two coats per day for 10 days to achieve a basic shine, said Ragsdale. After drying, strings can be applied to the ukulele. He carries three different kinds of string ranging from premium nylon, floral carbon and synthetic gut. The one thing Ragsdale wants his customers to walk away with after visiting his sales booth is self confidence in making music and starting a new instrument. “It’s something new and fun, it’s like Christmas every day when you start the ukulele or a new instrument,” Ragsdale said. “The ukulele is such a simple instrument. It can bring such amazing joy and is fun to play at any level from pre-beginner to very advanced.”

Sen. Brian Schatz News Release

Wed 3-6 pm, Sat 9 am-2 am OR CALL FOR APPOINTMENT

The Hawaii Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) has been approved to receive a Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant (NHHBG) totaling $9.7 million from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA). U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz announced these funds can be used for a variety of eligible affordable housing activities, including new construction, acquisition, modernization or rehabilitation of rental or owner¬ occupied housing, housing services, crime prevention, safety, or model activities as described in the recipient's Native Hawaiian Housing Plan. DHHL says it will use the $9.7 million for projects in Kona and Keaukaha on Hawaii Island, Kalamaula on Molokai, Waimanalo on Oahu, and Anahola on Kauai. DHHL’s priority is to deploy a portion of the resources for homeowner and developer financing for various sweat equity, home repair, turnkey, and rentals-with-option-to-purchase projects in communities statewide. DHHL will also expend NAHASDA resources allocated this fiscal year for infrastructure development in East Kapolei, Oahu for 50 single-family units. “Native Hawaiian families face unique barriers to adequate housing and over the last decade, federal funding has helped make a positive difference,” said Schatz. “The Native American Housing and Self-Determination Act is a landmark statute with programs that have proven very effective in addressing housing disparities faced by native communities. In Hawaii, I have witnessed the success of the Native Hawaiian Housing Block Grant and loan guarantee programs first hand – how they have benefitted the Native Hawaiian community, increased homeownership, improved living conditions, and changed lives.” To qualify for a NHHBG, the DHHL is required to submit proposed activities in an annual Native Hawaiian Housing Plan to HUD for review. Grant funds are then made available to the DHHL by HUD to be used in accordance with the housing plan.

Catching the Summer KukaKuka, Let’s Talk Story Swell

Community Contributed

No stress, jus bless Opinion by Rick Baptiste No Stress Jus Bless. What’s that all about? Thriving as a community has a lot has to do with our small island community “living large.” I don’t mean “living large” as in urban city life but as an uberisland, meaning, “an outstanding or supreme example” and in our case, a happy, blessed, community that thrives because of the Aloha lifestyle that feeds on itself. Let’s first take a look at “stress.” According from what I read when I Googled, “stress and effects on health”, you may think illness is to blame for that nagging headache, your frequent insomnia or your decreased productivity at work. But stress may actually be the culprit. The article said that stress effects your body in the form of headaches, muscle tension, chest pain, fatigue, upset stomach, and sleep problems. Stress can have effects on you mood in the form of anxiety, lack of motivation, irritable, anger, sadness, and depression. Stress can also affect your behavior, like overeating/under-eating, angry outbursts, drug /alcohol abuse, and social withdrawal. Do you see any of these symptoms on our island?

Have you ever heard the phrase, “misery breeds company.” I have, and although I believe it is a true statement, I think “happiness is contagious” is also true. So, choose to be happy. Choose to be friendly, choose to smile, open the door for someone, help Aunty carry her groceries, pick up the trash that is staring at you on the ground. Guess what? If you are doing something nice and blessing somebody, then you are not making trouble or causing problems. Hint of the day: If you have a choice of being right or being kind, choose to be kind! Science says that good vibes gets passed around when you are kind that it has a ripple effect. According to one article, “seeing—or even just reading about—others' courage, compassion, or generosity can not only make us better people but increase the likelihood we'll do good works of our own.” Science basically states that when you do an act of kindness, you will be blessed, they will be blessed, others that see it happening will be blessed and even those that just hear about it or read about it are blessed. No stress, jus bless!

Tips from the Vet for Your Pet: Leptospirosis By Stewart Morgan, Ph.D., D.V.M. refuse to eat, be lethargic, have a fever, Leptospirosis is a disease that can make both people and their pets sick and can result in death. It is found worldwide and is present on Molokai. Leptospirosis is spread by a bacterium (species of bacteria) that infects animal kidneys. The bacterium is released in the urine of infected animals. People and most common pet and farm animal species can catch this disease; cats are one species that is resistant to leptospirosis. Animals and people can become infected with the disease through cuts in their skin, or through oral (mouth) or venereal (sexual) contact. Eating food contaminated with leptospirosis bacteria (like raw meat) or being bitten by an animal with leptospirosis can also spread the disease. Leptospirosis bacteria are most stable in moist warm environments; any river, stream, pond or source of water that may become contaminated with urine from infected animals is a possible source of infection. It is impossible to diagnosis leptospirosis just by a physical examination because the clinical signs (symptoms) can be similar to many other diseases. Animals that have leptospirosis can

vomit, urinate a lot and drink a lot or not urinate at all, can have diarrhea, and have pain in their abdomen. Liver disease can result from leptospirosis infection. In some animals, abortions or infertility may be the only things that indicate infection with leptospirosis. The best way of diagnosing leptospirosis is through testing blood and urine for signs of infection. In dogs and farm animals, vaccinations are the best defense against leptospirosis, other than keeping animals completely away from any sources of infection (which is close to impossible!). Vaccines protect animals from the most common types of leptospirosis, called serovars. These vaccines protect against disease from serovars (but not others) for up to a year, so need to be given annually. Rodents, such as rats and mice, are major carriers of leptospirosis. Eliminating populations of these vermin from around your residence and workplace and keeping them away from your animals is important in preventing leptospirosis. Wearing gloves when dressing game such as pig and deer is also helpful in preventing the spread of this disease.

he did anything wrong," said Fried, quoted by the AP. The AP report states that Makani Kai Air, is, however, named in the suit, but it is unclear at this time what claims are being made against the airline. Makani Kai owner Richard Schuman was unavailable for comment but told the AP last week that he wasn’t aware of the lawsuit.

Black Twig Borers By Glenn I. Teves | County Extension Agent, UH CTAHR One of the obvious long-term impacts of drought on plants and trees is stress that can lead to death of branches or even the entire tree. Older trees are especially susceptible since they’re weaker due to age, and they lack vigor or juvenility. Insects will zero in on them and attack stems and eventually heartwood. Older wood is harder and dryer, and are especially attractive to insects, especially beetles. When you see symptoms such as dead branches, the damage had already occurred months earlier. One cue of this problem on Molokai is dying branches of Eucalyptus trees in the mountains. Along the mauka edge of Iron-

wood Hills Golf Course, branches of Eucalyptus have been dying back for some time now from insect damage. There are many culprits sensing that plants are under stress and attack. Of these, the Black Twig Borer, also known as the Coffee Twig Borer, is notorious for its ability to kill large trees. A black beetle about 1/8inch long, it can bring giant trees down and even attack large healthy trees, but stressed plants are more susceptible. Belonging to a group known as Ambrosia beetles, they bore into dead and weakened trees and release spores of a fungus on which they feed on. This same fungus will clog the plants water intake system, killing branches and whole trees.

First found in Hawaii in 1961, the Black Twig Borer is native to Asia and has spread to all coffee growing areas of the world. The black twig borer has a very wide host range and will attack over 200 species of plants and trees including orchids, anthuriums, citrus, coffee, cacao, paper bark, lychee, macadamia, mango, koa haole, Christmas berry, guava, kukui, hibiscus, pikake, mahogany, Surinam cherry, and numerous Eucalyptus species, among others. We have been receiving reports of dying trees, and this would be the most obvious culprit. Female black twig borers will tunnel into woody twigs, leaving pin-sized entry holes. Once inside, they will excavate gal-

leries and lay eggs. It is here where they also introduce a fungus, including the Fusurium fungus, known for clogging the plants water intake system leading to decline and death. Males will stay in the galleries, while females will breed and exit the pin holes, establishing a new gallery elsewhere, including in an adjacent tree. The key to disease and insect control is to grow a healthy plant. Maintaining trees by adequately watering and feeding, and also pruning dead and diseased material, is essential to keeping plants and trees healthy. For more information on this pest, you can download at publication at extento.hawaii.edu/kbase/crop/type/xylosand.htm.

You will continue to have special powers to do this type of work for months to come. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In accordance with the astrological omens, you are hereby granted a brief, one-time-only license to commit the Seven Deadly Sins. You heard me correctly, Libra. As long as you don't go to extremes, feel free to express healthy amounts of pride, greed, laziness, gluttony, anger, envy, and lust. At least for now, there will be relatively little hell to pay for these indulgences. Just one caveat: If I were you, I wouldn't invest a lot of energy in anger and envy. Technically, they are permitted, but they aren't really much fun. On the other hand, greed, gluttony, and lust could be quite pleasurable, especially if you don't take yourself too seriously. Pride and laziness may also be enjoyable in moderate, artful amounts.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you were alive 150 years ago and needed to get a tooth extracted, you might have called on a barber or blacksmith or wigmaker to do the job. (Dentistry didn't become a formal occupation until the latter part of the 19th century.) Today you wouldn't dream of seeking anyone but a specialist to attend to the health of your mouth. But I'm wondering if you are being less particular about certain other matters concerning your welfare. Have you been seeking financial advice from your massage therapist? Spiritual counsel from your car repair person? Nutritional guidance from a fastfood addict? I suggest you avoid such behavior. It's time to ask for specific help from those who can actually provide it.

Veterans Corner By Jesse Church Aloha my fellow veterans and residents of Molokai, old Jesse here with all the veterans’ news and upcoming events. The U.S. Marines stand sentry outside the White House, which is considered the “highest post in the land,” according to the Marine Corps website. Four Marines guard outside the West Wing lobby whenever the President is inside working or when he arrives or departs. The post is reserved for Marines in the infantry because they symbolize “what every Marine stands for, honorable service in defense of our nation and its interests,” according to Marines.com. Marines are also responsible for guarding more than 100 U.S. embassies overseas, protecting ambassadors and representing American culture abroad. How many people got the correct answer for the question in the last column, what wonder of the world was introduced at the World’s Columbian Exposition, held in Chicago in 1893? The answer is the Ferris Wheel. Organizers had wanted a feat to rival the Eiffel Tower, which debuted at a world’s fair four years earlier in Paris, France. The new question is, in June 1933, Camden, New Jersey introduced a brand new way of watching movies. What was it? Gen. Eric Shinseki addressed the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans on May 30, and an hour later, resigned as VA secretary. Shinseki was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in 1965 after he graduated from U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the son of

Japanese immigrants in Hawaii. He was wounded three times in Vietnam, earning Purple Hearts for injuries ranging from mortar shrapnel to his chest to a landmine that destroyed most of his right foot. He went on to become Army vice chief of staff in 1998, and chief of staff in 1999. Shinseki was nominated for VA secretary in December 2008, and was the longest-serving VA head. When he took office, he made broadening compensation for Vietnam-era veterans a top priority, along with reducing veteran homelessness and cutting the claims backlog. In those efforts, the department has seen some success. Shinseki added one million veterans to the department’s compensation and health benefits rolls with veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan as well as older veterans previously shut out of VA care. It is my opinion that Shinseki did his best to improve VA health care and compensation. The issues with medical scheduling systems have been known since before he took office. The VA inspector general has been reporting on long wait times and schedule problems for almost 10 years. Let us all support our active duty service men and women stationed around the world, especially those in harm’s way, and our veterans at home. For all you do, we send a big mahalo. Old Jesse sends a big mahalo to Gen. Shinseki for what I consider a job well done. Let the bureaucracy in Washington clean their office or departments before they bad mouth someone else’s. If you have a question or news, please give old Jesse a call at 553-3323. I hope everyone has a terrific couple of weeks, and remember, old Jesse loves you all.

Glyphosate, A Dangerous Chemical Opinion by Artice Swingle Glyphosate is the most prevalent chemical used on Molokai and it’s almost impossible to avoid contact with it. It is readily available on Molokai for home purposes, and is the main ingredient in Round-up. It is heavily used by state and county departments and the local biotech industries. As data suggests, glyphosate is bioaccumulative, building up in people’s bodies over a period of time. Earth Open Source Research Director Claire Robinson said, “Regulators and industry always say it is the dose that makes the poison, and even the increasing levels of glyphosate in food, feed and the environment are not a problem. However, that argument only holds true if glyphosate doesn’t build up in the human body and is excreted as fast as we take it in. The breast milk results suggest that glyphosate may bio-accumulate. That means that our body tissues might be exposed to higher levels than the

so-called safe levels set by regulators. So the regulations are not protecting us.” According to Zen Honeycutt, director of Moms Across America, the initial testing for glyphosate was done using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) tests and due to a high minimum detection level in breast milk and urine, it is possible that even those samples which tested negative contained “worrying” levels of the chemical. “…Breast milk should still be the number one choice for mothers and certainly preferred over GMO soy formula ingredients,” according to Honeycutt. “All mothers are urged to eat as organic as possible, especially avoiding meat, dairy, oils and grains that are sprayed with glyphosate at harvest as a drying agent.” Extremely low levels of pesticide exposure can cause significant health harms, particularly during pregnancy and early childhood.
