olokai is rooted in tradition. From celebrating the birthplace of hula, to longstanding family values, to the success of local businesses, traditions old and new create the foundation of community. Sometimes, we witness or experience the closing of a tradition. For fourth generation paniolo Uncle Jimmy Duvauchelle, 2013 was the end of an era. After nearly half a century of ranching Maunaloa’s rolling hills and herding cattle along the western shoreline, Duvauchelle announced a bittersweet retirement from ranching. And while the closure of Duvauchelle’s family-run Pohakuloa Ranch signaled the end of a six-generation family tradition, the paniolo lifestyle on Molokai carries on in a younger group. “The cowboy legacy is a dying race, so our generation has to keep it strong,” Nicholei Galam-Dudoit, 18, said. Added 18-year-old Kainoa Kamakana, “It’s a hard working life. You barely have free time because you’re chasing cows out of
the road or fixing fenses.” But they agree it’s worth the work, and while many of Molokai’s young paniolo are making a name for themselves in the rodeo arena, they’re also following their family’s traditions and carrying them forward. One of Molokai’s groceries, Friendly Market, also celebrated a milestone in family traditions this year -- the business’ 60th anniversary. Owner Jeff Egusa recalls stocking shelves as a kid, thinking ‘I never, ever want to work in this business.’ But when he moved home in 1980 to do just that, he later called it “the best decision of [his] life.” Meanwhile in Kalaupapa, the entire community celebrated patient resident Aunty Gloria Marks’ 10th ownership anniversary of Fuesaina’s Bar..Marks, the settlement’s only business owner, said she asked settlement officials if she could close the road for the celebration. And so, with colorful banners, games, and free drinks, residents gathered together for good company and laughter in the middle of the street.
All traditions begin somewhere, and this year fostered several events that may stick around for years to come. One of them came in July, when thousands of pounds of goods and dozens of services were given away during what was called the island’s largest ever humanitarian event. Organizers of the Weekend of Hope, sponsored by local churches and the nation-wide humanitarian effort Convoy of Hope, hope it will be even bigger next year. Emerging trends of excellence among Molokai’s students in science and technology were also celebrated this year. The Middle School robotics team, the Molokai Golden Eyes, won the county and state robotics championships and went to the national competition. As we enter the New Year, we look forward to the many traditions that will be carried forth, and the new ones that may get their start in 2014. As a community, let’s resolve to honor the past while leaving ourselves open for new possibility.

Year in Review july All Stars Play Ball on Home Turf Molokai’s Little League All Stars fought for the district champion title, taking on teams from across the county in the first tournament Molokai has hosted in seven years. After restructuring the league under new leadership, the championship games returned to the island. Molokai’s 11 and 12-year-old All Stars came in second in the district after a 0-8 loss to Central East Maui. Though the tournament marked the end of this year’s Little League season on Molokai, the athletes finished with a lot of pride in their accomplishments. “My favorite thing about it is having fun,” said All Star Chevy Augustiro, adding that he thought they would win the game, but he wasn’t disappointed. “It’s just a game; we can come back next year and try again.”
Invention Hits Home Run Erik Svetin, a freshman at Molokai High School, added a row of stitches to a baseball to see if it would affect the distance the ball traveled. He entered his invention in the national Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge and was named the Hawaii merit award winner. Svetin found his baseball traveled 2.26 percent, or about 2.8 additional meters, farther than a standard ball and depending how the bat hit the ball, it could cause more homeruns. Svetin said it could also affect the velocity or movement of the pitch. Though Svetin said his invention wouldn’t change the sport, his future inventions might be a continuation of his baseball.
Kalaupapa Bar Celebrates 10 Years A decade ago, Kalaupapa patient resident Gloria Marks bought the settlement’s only bar, and this year, the 100-resident community came out to celebrate the business’ 10th anniversary. A street in Kalaupapa closed for the second block party in the settlement’s history, but it was Marks who also hosted the settlement’s first block party for the bar’s firth anniversary in 2008. Called Fuesaina’s Bar, Marks’ business stocks more than 10 varieties of beer, and some wine as well. A popular community gathering spot, the bar gave away nearly 200 free drinks during a celebratory happy hour Friday evening. The festivities also included colorful banners, dozens of lucky number prizes, games, a photo booth, dinner and a desert contest, residents gathered together for good company, drinks and laughter in the middle of the street.
A Voyage of Tradtion Nearly 500 Molokai residents, students and visitors got the chance to step foot on the Hokulea -- a replica of the traditional Hawaiian double-hulled sailing canoe -- docked at the Kaunakakai Wharf. The vessel is touring Hawaii before embarking on a threeyear Worldwide Voyage that will span three years, 46,000 miles, 21 countries and at least 65 landfalls. During the Worldwide Voyage, an average crew of 12 to 15 will navigate the canoe on its journey, spreading a message of care for the environment. “We will carry everyone’s aloha and mana with us wherever we go,” said Ka`iulani Murphy, student navigator and captain participating on the Worldwide Voyage.

With growing concerns on Molokai about food security, Friendly Market Center (FMC) plans to build a warehouse that will more than double the business’ current chill storage capacity for perishable items, according to co-owner Jeff Egusa. The warehouse will offer a buffer in case the barge cannot deliver on its current twice-weekly schedule, and could also mean cheaper food for Molokai shoppers, said Egusa. The project is currently valued at $400,000 and it will be located across from FMC’s current warehouse and storefront. The warehouse will include 4,495 square feet of storage space, as well as a loading dock, small office for warehouse workers Kalapaki Girls Dezigns (KGD) speand a 13-space parking lot.

Island Air Decreases Molokai Flights Air carrier Island Air decreased the number of flights the carrier offers to Molokai 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. Now, the decrease from three to two daily flights caused various levels of outrage for Molokai customers, while others said they actually prefer flying other carriers, citing complaints with Island Air’s notorious delays.
Sending ‘Aloha’ by Nut
Decorated coconuts postmarked from Ho`olehua have been sent to every continent and most of the world’s countries, said Postmaster Gary Lam. They’ve been personalized and mailed as wedding invitations, birthday and anniversary cards, friendly greetings, and even a final farewell to cheer soon-departing loved ones. Lam said visitors have been known to take the ferry from Maui just to postmark a nut from Molokai. It was all started by Lam’s predecessor, Postmaster Margaret “Peggy” KeahiLeary, more than 20 years ago. That was before anyone had heard of postmarking a coconut. Since then, Lam estimates the Ho`olehua Post Office has mailed 50,000 coconuts. With post offices around the country being closed down and phased out, Lam credits community support – and the Post-a-Nut program – with keeping the Ho`olehua office open.
Federal Gov. Shutdown Across the country, 800,000 federal civilian workers were furloughed for 16 days after the government faced a partial shutdown starting Oct. 1. On Molokai, 47 workers are employees of the Kalaupapa National Historical Park (KNHP), according to Superintendent Erika Stein Espaniola — and 37 of those were furloughed for 16 days. Ten remained on to perform necessary functions within the Kalaupapa settlement, such as law enforcement, waste management, and utility personnel. Local U.S. Dept. of Agriculture employees were also furloughed. Federal employees went back to work when the U.S. House and Senate agreed to pass a bill, which raises the national debt ceiling. But enforcement of the debt limit is suspended until Feb. 7, 2014, after which another confrontation might take place, according to political analysts.

Battery Proposed for Power Plant Energy researchers have proposed a multi-million dollar project they hope will help stabilize Molokai’s electricity supply. A 2 MW battery, called a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), proposed for the island would allow energy to be stored and switched on or off the grid at a moment’s notice.

Reconstructing Mokio’s Past
8 Survivors, 1 Death in Makani Kai Kalaupapa Crash A Makani Kai flight departing Kalaupapa crashed into the ocean about 3:45 p.m. shortly after take-off about 1/2 mile off the peninsula. Eight on board the Cessna Grand Caravan survived, while Department of Health Director Loretta Fuddy died in the water after exiting the sinking plane. “As the Director of Health, Loretta demonstrated an unwavering support for Hawaii and the people she served,” said Sen. J. Kalani English. “She will be dearly missed.” Maui Fire Rescue and the Coast Guard, rescued the passengers, taking three survivors to Molokai General Hospital, three directly to Oahu and two declined treatment and left the remaining two in Kalaupapa who declined treatment, according to emergency officials. The accident is under federal investigation and the aircraft was recovered from the water for answer on why its engine failed.
Marshall Weisler is an archeologist and professor at Australia’s University of Queensland. He’s been coming to Molokai the past 35 years to study the island’s many historic sites and piece together a picture of how ancient Hawaiians lived. Today, he studies native populations that once resided in the Mokio area. The Mokio Preserve is a 1,718 acre parcel owned by the Molokai Land Trust, a local organization with the mission of preserving and restoring native plants and animals as well as cultural sites on Molokai.
