t’s a milestone that only happens once and the Kauai Historical Society is kicking off its centennial anniversary by hosting a series of monthly events to highlight some the different cultures that helped shaped the Garden Isle over the years. “We have huge collections of things and we want younger people to find out about their own previous generations, learn about different times on Kauai and then bring that into their lives,” Donna Stewart of the Kauai Historical Society said. “We don’t want to be dead, dry history. We want people to learn what we have and learn what life is like.” The first event, scheduled to take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Aston Aloha Beach Hotel in Wailua, is a festival celebrating the

Okinawan culture through traditional music, dancing, cultural displays and food. It’s an ethnic group that, Stewart said, has roots on Kauai dating back to the turn of the 20th century, when groups of Okinawan immigrants arrived as field workers and laborers for the island’s plantations. Bernie Sakoda, who is helping to coordinate the event with Hui Alu Warabi Ashibi, said entertainment lineup is scheduled to include a variety of traditional musical performances of the koto, an Japanese string instrument; kucho, an Okinawan string instrument; fue, an Okinawan transverse flute; sanshin, an Okinawan string instrument; and, of course, taiko drums. Musical performers, Sakoda said, will also be flying in from Maui and Oahu to assist the

this restaurant and supporting us,” said owner Kenny Ton. The popular items include the pho beef noodle soup, of course, a 24-hour process

of boiling meat and bone for a tasty broth. Along with the chicken pho, Ton added a tofu and vegetable pho version to cater to the vegetarian clientele, he said. “The vegetarian pho broth is made separately without meat or bones,” said Ton. The papaya salad and a variety of fried and fresh egg

rolls are very good, Ton said. The lemongrass chicken is also becoming a signature item for its fresh lemongrass and baked dark meat (unless the customer prefers white chicken breast) and served as a rice platter or a sandwich. “Our pork chop is very good too,” Ton said. “We use a lot of garlic powder and Hawaiian

hat better way to follow a great meal thanwith a blended drink in a relaxing, open setting with live musical entertainment. At $8, The Royal Kokonut Koast Kooler is a customer favorite at The Lemongrass Grill Seafood & Bar in the Choy Village of Kapaa. Made with the rum of choice, and blended with pineapple, coconut, guava and mango, it is as tasty and even more colorful as a nonalcoholic version. “Blended drinks are fruity, flavorful and subtle but with a bang,” said Shan Hammond, Lemongrass bartender. “Our guests really love the Kokonut Koast. It gives an illusion of a sunset or a sunrise.” The drink menu notes that the Kokonut Koast is in part to honor Kauai’s royalty that made the Eastside their home for centuries. The abundance of coconut

barbecue sauce.” The traditional Vietnamese pork Bánh mì sandwich is popular, but more so the tailored versions with teriyaki beef, chicken or tofu. The stir-fry menu is made “Chinese local style” with a vegetable variety to include eggplant and tofu version that is also aimed to the please the vegetarian clientele. The local menu includes pork ribs and barbecue chicken. A house fried rice is prepared with an Indian-style sauce to make it peppery spicy, Ton said. The fish sauce is mixed with a variety of local ingredients to include garlic and pineapple. “We try to do a mix,”Ton said. “We serve a thousand people with a thousand tastes and so try to find a middle ground of tastes and seasonings.” Ton learned the restaurant trade from working at his uncle’s

trees came later and provided the nickname “Royal Coconut Coast.” The Kokonut Koast was added to the menu around two years ago and is the creation of David White, a staff manager at Lemongrass for the past decade. He creates his drinks from inspiration, followed by trial and error with ingredients using the staff as taste testers. Another rum specialty drink on the menu is the “Wailua River Relaxer.” Vodka drinkers will like the “Polihale Passion,” and whisky lovers should try the “Sleeping Giant.” There are also assorted daiquiri’s, chi chi’s, margaritas and piña coladas. The full bar includes a wine and beer selection along with aged Portuguese port wine and sake for after dinner. Lemongrass is at 4-871 Kuhio Highway.

150-seat buffet in California. He moved to Kauai 13 years ago for “the peace and quiet of a beautiful island and people,” he said. The beverage list includes Vietnamese French press coffee with condensed milk. There are a few versions of Thai tea and a full array of tapioca bubble tea drinks. Ton also owns Kauai Nail Spa that opened two years ago in the same plaza. His wife runs the salon while he concentrates full time at Pho

Kapaa now that it has added Mondays and is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. The family restaurant employs around five people and he is looking at possible locations to open a second restaurant on the Southside at some point. There is a surprise coming to the Kapaa restaurant in February, Ton said, but its not the right time to make the announcement yet. Pho Kapaa is at 4-831 Kuhio Highway.

REVIEW ASSOCIATED PRESS JAKE COYLE

Rebooted patriot games in ‘Jack Ryan’

H

aving clung to the Russians as go-to villains long after the Cold War thawed, the movies find themselves current again with their favorite arch-enemy. Cooling Russo-American relations have yielded an opening for the return of Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst, just in time for the Sochi Olympics. In the Jack Ryan reboot, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” Chris Pine takes over as the spy who was played by Alec Baldwin (“The Hunt for Red October”), Harrison Ford (”Patriot Games,” “Clear and Present Danger”) and Ben Affleck (“The Sum of All Fears”). It’s a decent legacy of a dark-haired, intellectual action hero. Ryan is a navigator of murky, reasonably realistic, international espionage worlds. He has neither James Bond’s preternatural suavity nor Jason Bourne’s visceral butt-kicking

skills, but instead anxiously finds his way with patriotic cunning. “Shadow Recruit,” which was scripted without a Clancy book by Adam Cozad and David Koepp, tells a new backstory for Ryan. Inspired by Sept. 11, he joins the Marines and is heroically injured in Afghanistan. During his recovery, he meets his eventual fiancee (a doctor named Cathy played by Keira Knightley) and is lured to the CIA by a mysterious recruiter (Kevin Costner, unconvincingly trying to exude a Donald Sutherland-like gravitas). He’s covertly embedded at a Wall Street bank where he uncovers a Russian plot to buy up U.S. Treasury bonds, which he suspects will be sold off in a coordinated act of terrorism and currency devaluation. Surely, if Ronald Reagan (whose endorsement of Clancy’s first novel, “The Hunt for Red October,”

propelled his fame) was still around, he’d swoon over a spy thriller based on the harrowing threat of inflation. Ryan’s investigation leads him to the Russian oligarch Viktor Cherevin, played by Kenneth Branagh, who also directed the film. Certainly, it takes a bite out of the nationalistic politics when the movie’s villain is played by a knighted British actor known for his Shakespeare work. Branagh endows his film with (mostly) old-fashioned competency — something often lacking in today’s action films — but little to distinguish it from superior thrillers that have come before. The best thing here is the sleekness of modern Moscow, where much of the action takes place. The film is filled with a nighttime mix of neon and taillights set against the Kremlin and other monuments — a handsome enough rendering to send

a viewer back to the recent Bond, “Skyfall,” for those elegant Shanghai scenes. But “Shadow Recruit” is also disappointingly formulaic, relying on the familiar set piecedriven story of an implausible heist and a time-bomb finale. Knightley is too strong a force for this girlfriend role. And when the global scheme is figured out in a minute with

a bank of computer-searching analysts, one foresees the obsolescence of the action film: sprawling plots undone with a few keystrokes. “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is perhaps most significantly a test for Pine as a movie star. Early in the film, when Ryan is forced to defend his life in a hotel room battle, he ably depicts the shock and hor-

ror of a man encountering such a circumstance for the first time. But Pine also fails to make his Jack Ryan more than an afterthought to Baldwin’s know-it-all or Ford’s reluctant hero. As Costner’s character says, he too much resembles “a Boy Scout on a field trip.” One unlikely cameo should be noted: New York’s famed repertory art-house theater, the Film Forum, appears early in the movie when Ryan swaps information at a screening of “Sorry, Wrong Number.” At least in “Shadow Recruit,” the interior has finally been upgraded to plush stadium seating. “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” a Paramount Pictures release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “sequences of violence and intense action, and brief language.” Running time: 105 minutes. Two stars out of four.

Kauai Voices kicks off ‘A World in Harmony’ tonight at 7:30 at St. Michaels and All Angels Church in Lihue. Pictured here singing ‘Amani’ during a recent rehearsal are, front row, artistic and musical director Randy Leonard, S. Kamal Salibi, Morgan Liddell, David Collison, Boreas van Nouhuys and Liz Hahn. Pictured in the back are Gregg Kiaha, Steve Backinoff, Ken Curtis, Jim Mayfield, Barbara Pendragon, Nancy Bunyan, Billy Quebido, Lolly Hagen, Pat Hillegonds, Erik Hagen, Fran Nestel and Margee Wheeler.

ixteen weeks of practice are in the books. The stage is set. And if last week’s rehearsals are any indication, these musical performances are not to be missed. Kauai Voices, the island’s auditioned 40-voice choral ensemble, presents “A World in Harmony” concert tonight and Saturday at St. Michael and All Angels Church in Lihue. “It’s going to be music from all over the world,” said Artistic Director Randall Leonard. “It’s about the fact that music is a universal

Kauai Voices set for ‘A World in Harmony’ language of mankind.” Style or understanding the lyrics are not important, according to Leonard. “Whether it’s Korean, Slovak, Hawaiian, Swahili, Celtic, Jamaican, Hispanic, Hebrew or American music and language, we connect with the sounds and spirit of the songs,” he said. The concerts will feature 12 specialty instrumentalists of varied cultures who will join with the singers of Kauai Voices for an authentic sound and experience as they perform songs of hope,

peace, pride, welcome and joy from around the globe. Each performance will consist of 28 individual pieces of music from 15 countries. “We’re just really pulling out all the stops,” said Leonard, adding there will be didgeridoos, shakuhachi flutes, bagpipes and even a harmonium. The program is presented and created by Leonard, a choral director and soloist with 35 years of experience, with Alan Van Zee as accompanist. While there will be music

from around the world, a large portion will be of African origin in honor of the late Nelson Mandela, who Leonard says “championed world unity, humanity and hope.” Founded in 2011, Kauai Voices has a community-based mission of enhancing appreciation of choral music within the community. To date, Kauai Voices has performed regular concerts as well as provided musical outreach to schools and organizations to advocate the benefits of choral singing, which builds discipline

and cognitive abilities, encourages camaraderie, promotes confidence, improves memory and listening, and enhances social skills. Leonard said he and his ensemble are at the “sprint to the finish” and everything is coming together. When asked if he was tired after 16 weeks of rehearsals, Leonard said he was. “But delightfully so,” he said. “It’s one of those labors of love where you just keep going no matter how tired you are.”

CHRIS D’ANGELO TGIFR!DAY

And he is confident the hard work will pay off this weekend. Performances tonight and Saturday begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door and $10 for students and are available at Jim Saylor Jewelers in Kapaa, St. Michael’s Church, Kalaheo Café & Coffee Co., The Wine Shop in Koloa and Waimea Plantation Cottages or from any member of Kauai Voices.
