ake a walk down Manako Lane in
Kaunakakai on any given weekday and you will notice an unassuming green house nestled in the corner, buzzing with traffic. Several days a
week, mental health patients gather at
this spot – known as the clubhouse –
which they describe as a place of solace
“We get to do activities, talk with
each other, keep our minds busy,” said
Paul Fischer, who visits the clubhouse
The Hana Ka Lima Clubhouse is
a mental health drop-in center, serving
about 70 Molokai residents suffering
from mental illnesses. Joe Childs, facility director and case manager, helps reintegrate members into the community
through counseling, work programs
and therapeutic activities, such as gardening and cooking.
After funding was slashed earlier
this year, two social worker positions at
the clubhouse were cut, leaving Childs,
along with his wife, Althea, to run the
center. Hours of operation were subsequently reduced by nearly half.
“It’s difficult without a bigger
staff,” Childs said. “We at least hope to
restore hours soon.”
Molokai Community Health Center board members, community members, state and county politicians – and a keiki – join forces to break ground
on the new health center last week. The center will feature community activities, as well as medical practices, as it remodels the old Pau Hana Inn.

other mental health services on Molokai, struggle to stay afloat, state officials

s the U.S. Marine Corps prepares to draft an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for
the use of new aircraft during training
exercises, officials say Molokai could
see a slight increase in military activity.
If the proposal is approved, the
Marine Corps would introduce two
new types of aircraft – the MV-22
Osprey tilt-rotor and H-1 Cobra and
Huey attack helicopters – to their
training and readiness operations.
Maj. Alan Crouch, spokesperson
for Marine Corps Base Hawaii, said
Molokai is being primarily looked at
as a re-fueling location.
“While in transit to Big Island,
they might need to re-fuel on Molokai,” said Crouch, who was on-island last week for a lightly-attended
open house. “That’s the only reason
they’d come into the airfield.”
Training exercises, which are currently conducted near the Kalaupapa
peninsula at night, would remain unaltered. Pilot James Sibley said they

ecent Molokai High School
graduate Candice Pauole
completed a summer internship with Hawaii Pacific
Health (HPH), Hawaii’s largest
employer of healthcare workers in
the state of Hawaii. HPH currently manages four hospitals including Kapi`olani Medical Center for
Women and Children, Kapi`olani
Medical Center at Pali Momi,
Straub Clinic and Hospital, and
Wilcox Health Center on Kauai.
Candice immersed herself in
a paid medical/surgical internship at Kapi`olani Medical Center
at Pali Momi – working eight-anda-half hours per day, five days a
week. She shadowed a registered
nurse, nurse assistant, and a nurse
secretary. The majority of her patients were between the ages of
60 and 90 years old, with some
reaching 100 years of age. She
changed diapers, gave bed baths,
and moved patients. In addition,
she was given the responsibility to
update information on the boards
in the patients’ rooms, serve
meals, refill supply carts, answer
phone calls, and watch for patient
request calls on the hospitals’
computer information system.
Besides working on her floor,
she was also able to observe six
different surgeries from within the
surgery room. After she scrubbed
and dressed appropriately, she
witnessed a gallbladder removal,
breast biopsy, cyst removal, cataract operation, fistulectomy, lower
spine replacement, and a leg amputation.
Outside of work she attended
classes at the hospital conference
room, enabling her to learn how to
turn patients, change diapers correctly, put in IVs, apply folly bags
and catheters to incontinent patients, and insert tubes down the
nose and throat. She also attended
medical terminology classes.
After completing this internship, Candice headed to
Kapi`olani Community College
to begin training for a career in
healthcare. This internship is
available to all students who complete the healthcare career track
at their respective high schools.
Selection is competitive and students must interview and be accepted into this internship. For
the past three years, Molokai High
School has placed a student from
their healthcare career track program.
Hawaii Wins Race to the
Department of Education, State of Hawaii News Release
ut of 46 states and the District of Columbia, Hawaii
won $75 million for education reform in the second phase of
President Obama’s Race to the Top
The $4.35 billion Race to the Top
Fund is an unprecedented federal
investment in reform. The program
includes $4 billion for statewide
reform grants and $350 million to
support states working together to
improve the quality of their assessments, which the Department plans
to award in September.
The Race to the Top state competition is designed to reward states
that are leading the way in comprehensive, coherent, statewide education reform across four key areas:
college- and career-ready standards
in reading and math; data systems
that measure student growth and
help teachers and principals how
to improve instruction; recruiting,
rewarding and retaining effective
teachers and principals; and turning
around lowest-performing schools.
Gov. Linda Lingle released a
statement the day the award was announced, applauding the collaborative efforts of education and community partners that resulted in Hawaii
being named a Race to the Top grant
“Getting to this point would not
have been possible without the dedication and hard work of the Hawaii
Department of Education – under
the leadership of interim Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi – the Board
of Education, the community and
my Administration,” Lingle said.
“Securing this grant is just a
stepping stone. We will now begin
the hard work of implementing our
education reform plan, which in-
cludes a common core curriculum
tied to a new on-line state test while
tracking student progress and rewarding teachers by linking 50 percent of their evaluation to student
achievement. I am especially excited
about our pledge to have 100 percent
of high school graduates ready for a
career and college without the need
for post secondary remediation programs,” Lingle added.
Rep. Mazie Hirono, a member
of the House Education and Labor
Committee, also released a statement, hailing the U.S. Department of
Education’s decision to award Hawaii.
“Hawaii won this grant by improving its score by almost 100
points, the biggest gain of any of the
winners. The hard work Hawaii’s
education leaders put in over the
past several months truly paid off.
Hawaii won this highly competitive
grant by bringing everyone to the
table, including teachers, administrators, and union and community
leaders. I congratulate School Superintendant Kathy Matayoshi and
her team. This announcement validates the state school system’s efforts to implement innovative school
reforms that will help Hawaii’s keiki,” Hirono said.
The Race to the Top funds will
directly impact 13.6 million students and 980,000 teachers in 25,000
schools nation wide. Other phase
two winners include the District of
Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York,
North Carolina, Ohio, and Rhode Island.
Videos of the phase two winning
states’ presentations will be posted
by Sept. 10 at www2.ed.gov/programs/racetothetop.

County Invites Public to
Maui County News Release
ayor Charmaine Tavares will
host a series of community
meetings this September to
take public testimony regarding the
proposed budget for the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Citizens with an interest in the
County budget are encouraged to attend a meeting in their local area and
offer testimony as individuals or on
behalf of an organization. Both written and verbal testimonies will be accepted.
Officials will be on Molokai on
Wednesday, September 29 at the Mitchell Pauole Center. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) public
hearing will start at 5:15 p.m., followed
by the budget meeting at 5:30 p.m.
The budget meetings are designed
to provide an opportunity for members
of the community to present what is
needed for their area. Input from the
community meetings will be taken into
consideration when the administration constructs the fiscal year 2011-2012
“Each year before submitting my
Administration’s proposed budget to
the County Council, I begin by gathering input from the community,” Tavares said. “This is an important first step
and I encourage the public to partici-
pate. Their suggestions and concerns
are valuable and appreciated.”
The office of the CDBG will conduct public hearings preceding the
Mayor’s budget community, to gather
views and comments from interested
persons who wish to participate in the
preparation of the County’s proposed
Annual Action Plan for the 2011-2012
fiscal year. The Action Plan is related to
the County’s grant application for approximately $2 million from the U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Community Development
Block Grant is a federal program created by Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-383). CDBG funds received
will be utilized for housing and community development needs primarily
benefiting low and moderate income

Spay and Neuter Season
Molokai Humane Society
he Molokai Humane
offers free spay
and neuter surgeries for the island’s
animals, and answers
asked questions about
how to help.
Why is it my problem to catch
wild cats and take them to be spayed
The over population of feral cats
on Molokai poses several risks to the
island. Cats are incredibly prolific.
An unsprayed adult female can have
18 kittens per year. She can become
pregnant at four months of age. Do
the math! If you think you have a feral
cat problem now, what will the problem look like in a year? The island’s
birds are threatened because the cats
kill the babies and destroy the eggs.
Feral cats carry diseases that can be
passed to pet cats. Sadly, more than
13,000 cats are euthanized in Hawaii
per year because they are unwanted.
Your participation in the Spay and
Neuter Program is a humane way to
make a difference.
What does the Molokai Humane Society do to help?
The Humane Society provides
spay and neuter surgeries to the fe-
ral cats and dogs free of charge. Additionally, they have cat traps now
available for a $15, fully refundable
deposit. Assistance is available to
transport if you are unable.
What should I do first?
Schedule an appointment at the
clinic by calling 552-0000. A day or
two before the scheduled surgery,
pick up the trap from the clinic. Follow the directions on successful and
safe trapping. Bring the cat to the
clinic the morning of the scheduled
surgery and plan to pick the cat up
the same day.
How can I tell if it has already
been spayed or neutered?
If the cat has a notched ear, it
has been spayed or neutered already.
That cat should be released.
What should I do with the cat
The cat must be released back to
the area where it was trapped.
What else can I do to help?
The Molokai Humane Society
needs money to continue providing vet care to the island. All donations are tax deductible, greatly appreciated, and wisely used!
The Molokai Humane Society is open
Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. A vet is
usually available by appointment at the
clinic on Mondays.
Groundbreaking cont. from page 1
last week, marking its latest chapter.
The ceremony was teeming with
leaders from the county and state:
U.S. Sens. Dan Akaka and Daniel
Inouye, Gov. Linda Lingle, state
Sen. Kalani English and state Rep.
Mele Carroll all gave remarks at
last week’s groundbreaking. County
Councilman Danny Mateo made a

event” – with Inouye planning to

Inouye, who is running for reelection in November, said the island’s economic status haunts him.
“This is my homecoming,” Inouye said. Puhi said Inouye was instrumental in helping the center receive its $117,000 in federal stimulus
funds to buy the property.
The MCHC staff has strived to
make the new health center more
than a clinic – they envision a community watering hole with healing
of all forms taking place.
“I came with Desiree a year and
a half ago,” English said in front of
the 400-plus crowd. “She had a fresh
view – sometimes all we see is what
[something] was, but sometimes we
have to let go and see what it can
Within the original buildings
will be clinics for behavioral health,
physical therapy, medical and dental
offices, as well as a community hall
for live music and healthy food.
“We want to keep the flavor or
vibe of the old Pau Hana Inn,” Puhi
The former hotel is currently
being renovated – Puhi said she intends to keep the “footprint” of the
existing buildings. Core services are
planned to be moved in by the end
of the year. Behavioral health and
physical therapy has already begun
at the center.
MCHC will be the only service
on the island not run by a private
health system or house private physicians – it’s “by Molokai, for Molokai,” said Medical Director Kawika
Liu joined the staff last month
and said he liked the vision of the
center and the opportunities it was
“[This is a] health center that is
really different and special for the
people of Molokai,” he added.
More Repairs at Kalaupapa

Mental Health cont. from page 1
partment of Health (DOH) will offer
The grant, which gives Hawaii
more than $2 million per year for five
years, is intended to focus on prevention, effective intervention and recovery through an array of services, said
Sharlene Chun-Lum, chief operations
officer for the grant. So far, the grant has
helped pay for new computers for the
clubhouse, and sent about 10 clubhouse
members to a Consumers, Families and
Youth (CFY) Hui meeting on Maui last
A CFY Hui is a new statewide program under the grant that brings together mental health constituents, both
adults and youth, and their `ohana,
with mental health organizations to receive information on services and support.
“The money is not just going to
keep the clubhouse open,” added Mi-
chelle Hill, deputy director of the Behavior Health Administration in the
DOH. “It’s going to improve the system
and transform mental health services.”
A major issue the department
hopes to address is the stigma of mental health illnesses, which is commonly
overlooked or ignored.
“In Hawaiian culture it’s more
common to say ‘my drunk uncle,’ rather than ‘my uncle with a mental health
problem,’” Chun-Lum said.
To help ease the fear of being
looked down upon, the department has
been training peer specialists, who too
have mental health illnesses, to effectively communicate their stories with
others and show that there is no shame
in seeking help. Three Molokai residents have been trained so far.
“It puts a face on mental health,”
Chun-Lum said. “By sharing their stories, they give hope.”

would continue with their night training about once a week, but assured no

“Much of the training is done in

means Molokai could be taken off the
map altogether if there is substantial
public opposition, and if the EIS shows
a negative impact.
“We know there is a lot of cultural

George noted. “It’s just [as] important
as air and water quality, and we will be
sensitive to that.”
cility, located on a 12-acre parcel of land
across from the airport owned by the
military, is also being examined as a potential site to develop on. It is currently
not in use.
Sibley said this land could be used
as a re-fueling point for the H-1 choppers. However, seeing as they are in the
early stages, Sibley said they are uncertain if the property will
be utilized for this purpose.
“If we did use it,
it could help stimulate
Molokai’s economy because we would be buying gas from the airport,”
During the public
scoping period, other islands who have sounded
off on the plan brought
up concerns over noise.
But the new H-1 helicopters, Sibley said, are
much quieter than the old ones because
the propellers have four blades instead
Crouch added that while it would
be quieter, the choppers would be frequenting Molokai roughly once or twice
a day, three times a week.
“There could be a stretch of a couple days with no traffic at all,” he said.
The public has until Sept. 7 to submit written comment on the EIS. There
will be another 45-day public scoping

Home grown Molokai Boy here to help!!
Meet the Candidate:
Governor candidate emphasizes education, economy.
By Megan Stephenson
says he wants
to look out
for the little guy. The
former mayor of Honolulu is now running
for governor and says
his administration will
work as closely with
the residents of Maui County as he did
when he was mayor. Hannemann came
to the Friendly Isle to host a talk story
and stopped by the Dispatch to discuss
his plans for education, agriculture and
Molokai Dispatch (MD): Why
are you running for governor?
Mufi Hannemann (MH): Because there’s a need more than ever for
someone who can hit the ground running. To resolve our longstanding issues in the economy, restore excellence
in education, and to continue to champion and nurture the environment – I
call it the Three Es. I have the executive
experience, the management experience…to do this job.
MD: Molokai faces the highest unemployment in the state. What is your
economic solution for our rural island?
MH: Overall, from day one I will
be focused on the economy. It’s still a
question if we can create more jobs here
– that’s a lot better than families being
separated, people having to go to Maui
or Oahu and only see their families on
the weekend. That’s why I really want
to put a specific emphasis on agriculture, because people are used to this
type of job, they like it and it’s environmentally friendly. The government has
to help with designation of agricultural
lands, the government has to make
sure they get the water that they need.
I want to tie into what the new principal
of Molokai High School, Stanford Hao,
wants to do – a specific agriculture curriculum.
MD: Where do you stand on a potential Molokai wind farm?
MH: I will not press ideas upon
Molokai – it has to come from them.
I can share ideas, I can say “This is a
good one,” but if the community says,
“No, that’s not right for us, we’re not for
that,” I would never force. If [Oahu’s]
wind farm was proposed on the leeward side, it would not have gone this
far due to sharp community opposition.
To First Wind’s credit, they put it on the
side of the island with community support. We don’t want another Superferry
situation. As for renewable energy, I
think it’s a worthy state goal, because
we’re still too dependent on fossil fuels. I was working with [former] Gov.
Ariyoshi…when we were 90 percent

MD: As far as education, what
would you do differently than this administration when faced in same issues

MH: We will not institute furlough
days for education, period. I’ll tell you
where the proof in the poi is – when we
did furloughs, I took public health safety off the table, so police, firefighters,
emergency services, 911, all taken off
the table. Forty percent [of] our state’s
budget is already dedicated to education. I will chase every federal grant,
every philanthropic foundation that has
funds. [Education] funding has to do
with creating a healthier, more productive educational environment, whether
for classroom instruction, whether for
laptops to make sure all areas are WiFi
– I even want to get involved in curriculum.
MD: How will your political agenda directly benefit Molokai?
MH: My administration will have
the mayor of Maui on the same level as
mayor of Honolulu. This is good news
for Molokai. That means as part of Maui
County, you would be at the table.
There are services being given to other
communities like on Oahu and the Big
Island and you’re not getting the same
quality of service – something’s wrong,
we need to change that. [Molokai] feels

Piltz says his business experience – he ran his family’s electrical contracting firm, Piltz Electric,
for 30 years – qualifies him to run the
county. Piltz, who previously chaired
the state’s Land Use Commission and
the Maui Planning Commission, hosted
a dinner at Coffees of Hawaii on Aug.
23 to meet with voters. He talked with
the Dispatch about the county’s water
and energy use, windmills on Molokai
and possible changes to county council
The Molokai Dispatch (MD):
Why are you running for mayor?
Randy Piltz (RP): What I’ve seen
is that our government has lost touch.
We’ve made everything an excuse and
there’s so many no’s. Too many no’s…
I’m saying, as a business man, that you
can’t take that attitude. You have to be
able to say “How can we help you?”
Just coming to the county building, it
[should be] “How can we help you?”
instead of saying “Stay over there, we’ll
MD: What are some of the greatest
issues you see facing the county?
RP: The whole county right now
is [dealing with] water. How do we
get water and bring it to the people
that need it? On Maui itself, our biggest problem is that there are several
pieces of legislation that have stopped
bringing water from East Maui to Central Maui. And that was a consent decree that was signed by a former mayor
who’s running again this time. You
signed something and you’ve restricted
water coming into Central Maui – that
wasn’t in the vestiges of the people.
How about our alternative energy?
The County of Maui right now is the
biggest user of electricity and we’ve
done nothing to help ourselves. There
are companies that I’ve met with and
they said they’ve made proposals to the
county and nothing
about issues facing
RP: The people
of Molokai have
Molokai in agriculture. When I was here over a year ago
when La`au Point was a big issue, we
heard the cries, we heard them saying
“No more, we don’t want that.” And
those of us that were planning on the
Land Use Commission voted to not
allow that to happen. So you made a
stand, and now we need to help you –
help you get forward, bring more things
that here that will help you with your
agriculture. Aquaculture would help.
As far as I know, they don’t want
tourists, and I’m seeing that they don’t
want the windmills, but they do want
some kind of alternative energy. If you
can bring alternative energy and have it
here on this island, then it should profit
the people living here. I guess their biggest concern was where [they would] be
placed, so let’s work together [to] find a
MD: What is your stance on the
proposed change to county council election system, which would strip Molokai
of its seat on the council?
RP: Gov. [Linda Lingle], when she
ran for council, in order for her to get
elected [to the Molokai seat], she had to
go to Maui to campaign. I would rather
see, if you’re coming from Molokai, for
the Molokai seat, they vote for you…
People want one man, one vote, and
I’m sure they’re looking at [it as], well,
all the people on Molokai vote for their
own person, but the number don’t work
out, and that’s a problem.
The Maui County primaries are Sept. 18.

Molokai `Ohana Surf Club News Release
eady, set, paddle! This Saturday,
Sept. 4, marks the first Molokai Holokai stand up paddle race – inviting
both locals and off-islanders to discover
Molokai’s world-class paddling conditions.
“Molokai is always being used by outsiders to host races for elite athletes – this
race is different,” said race organizer Todd
“Although our off-island guests are
welcome, this event is about our locals.
Molokai’s stand up paddlers are being
given their own divisions and prizes. I’m
hoping this will spur a lot of healthy competition among the friends and weekend
warriors that make up the island’s stand up
paddling community,” he said.
The motto of this weekend’s race is
“Stand Up for Our People,” representing
the support that organizers hope to attract
to Molokai’s budding stand up paddling
scene. Profits from the race benefit Molokai
`Ohana Surf Club, an organization which
encourages healthy opportunities for families through water sports.
Yamashita said he expects the race will
also add to the local economy – paddlers
are being offered discounted room rates by
Hotel Molokai, a major sponsor of the race.
“Most of all I want people to have
fun – enjoy themselves, each other, and the
beauty of the ocean,” Yamashita added.
Entry fee will be $30 day of the event.
Registration begins at 12 p.m. at Kamalo
Wharf where the race will start 1 p.m. Competitors, their families, and the public are
invited to the finish line at Hotel Molokai at
2:30 p.m. to watch competitors arrive and
enjoy pupus and prizes. For more information visit www.molokai.spruz.com.

Yamashita was first to reach the shore,

racer, finished close behind with a
time of 1:06:10. For the junior contestants, Eha Kalama, bested the field
with a time of 1:19:25. In the one-man
race Tanner Mosher came in first with
a time of 1:08:31 with Alex Gilliland
nine ticks behind in 1:08:40. This race

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In an old comedy sketch
called “One Leg Too Few,” a one-legged man comes in to
a casting agent’s office to audition for the part of Tarzan
in an upcoming show. The agent is as diplomatic as he can
be given the fact that the role would best be played by a
strapping young man with exceptional running and leaping skills. “It’s possible that no two-legged men will apply,”
the agent tells the applicant, “in which case you could get
the part.” Don’t be like the one-legged man in this story,

What’s Happening Molokai
here again. I
want to thank
the wonderful young
woman who helped
me when I fell in front
of the library. She
was standing across
the street and yelled
to see if I was okay. Lawdy, Lawdy, Ms.
Claudy! I was so embarrassed with my
`elemu showing for all to see. I don’t
know your name but mahalo nui loa.
I started my Intro to Hawaiian Culture: Communication Basic Language
and Phrases class taught by Kumu
Hokulani Holt-Padilla. Education has
sure changed since I was in school 50
years ago. We are hooked up to Lanai,
Lahaina, Hana, and the main campus
on Maui. We are able to see and hear
each other. Monday we had a movie in
class and had to turn in our first paper.
We have to do three papers, two tests,
and one project. Hoo Wee, just like that!
If they keep offering this type of class I
would like to continue to maybe get a
degree, not too late, huh? Speaking of
school, a young lady came in for a passport photo to go on a class trip to Japan.
Man, did I ever miss out at my school.
We didn’t get to do any of that then.
How great for the students.
Did you go to the film fest? I was
so impressed with the films the young
people are doing today. The film on The
Massacre at Kapoa Beach was so moving
to me that I went over to Anakala and
cried. There was my sister so happy and
alive and I cried even more. How fun
to have Brother Noland and his brother,
Tony Conjugation play music and watch
Scarlett, her daughters, and Aunty Julia
dance the hula.
Did you see any meteors during
the shower? Some people saw tons but
I only saw one. It looked so close that I
thought I could touch it. I met up with
the Red Hat ladies who were headed to
Hotel Molokai for brunch. They want
me to remind you that there is a swap
meet the first Saturday of the month in
Maunaloa and that the House of Blessings is there for all who need help with
items like clothes and household items.
Well, I guess this is all for now.

“Participating as a funder in
these conservation partnerships is
an efficient way to protect important
natural, cultural, and agricultural
resources,” stated Laura H. Thielen, Board of Land and Natural Resources Chairperson. “By providing
these grants as incentive, the State is
utilizing mostly private and federal
funds to protect these resources.”
The Legacy Land Conservation
Commission, a nine-member commission composed of cultural, agricultural and natural resource experts and representatives from each
county, advised the Board of Land
and Natural Resources on this year ’s
project selections. Gov. Linda Lingle
released funding for the Commission’s recommended projects in early June.
“Each of the recommended
projects protects an important resource,” stated Commission Chair
Dale Bonar. “Clean drinking water,

our agricultural lands – these are
the resources that Hawaii needs to
maintain a connection to its past and
build a sustainable future.”

Lyla Berg is the Right Choice
n July 26, 2010, the United
States Ninth Circuit Court of
Appeals rendered their opinion, affirming District Judge Susan
Oki Mollway, feeble decision in Day
Our challenge is not the thirty-plus years of a scam by a state
agency with the discretion of broad
purposes that need not limit its “primary beneficiaries” as long as the
“mission” is fulfilling anyone or all
of the other four purposes as set
forth in Section 5 (f) of the Admission Act.
We contend that the Ninth Circuit attentively blundered in their
“walk through this most difficult
terrain” missing completely the
spirit and intent of congress while
at the same time yielded to the latest scheme in undermining “Native
Hawaiians self-determination” – the
Congress could have worded the
second clause of Section 5 (f) of the
Admission Act to read “for the betterment of the conditions of the Public.” Or Congress could have worded
the second purpose to read “for the
betterment of the conditions of the
Native Hawaiians and Hawaiians.”
Instead, the wisdom of Congress
foresaw the emergent demands of
“Native Hawaiians self-determination” and recognized that is applies
in the United States of America just
as it must apply wherever in the
world human nature can be free to
follow its course.
The intent of Congress is the
plenary act of reaching down into
its soul and pulled out of the public
“Native Hawaiians” for special consideration, just as they have done
throughout history in their dealings
with the native Indians of America.

Is Molokai Getting Squeezed?
ater? Electric? Airlines?
Gas? Barge service fees?
I hear Malia and Henry and
their families are having a hard time
paying their utility bills. In June the
County of Maui doubled water rates
to many Molokai residents. Twenty
years ago the same rain, same pipeline distributing the water cost 70
percent less than today...so does
that mean the rain gods are charging
more for water?
Maui County’s budget is short
$30 million. So the County is going try to collect more money from
the people who pay their salaries.
Now it is election time and Molokai
can make a difference. If you feel
squeezed then why would you vote
for the same o same o? Molokai…

We’ve moved! 206 A`ahi st. (2nd heights)
am writing to you today about Representative Lyla Berg. She is running
for Lieutenant Governor in the upcoming election. I am aware that many
of you know her, as she was blessed
with the honor of living on Molokai for
five years. It was a time in her life that
lives within her and the values she experienced while here will guide the decisions she makes as Lt. Governor, and
hopefully further up the ladder.
I say hopefully because I have had
the delight of knowing Lyla Berg, or
Bonnie Berg as she was known to her
schoolmates, since she was in tenth
grade. Her hopes for all of us are achievable, and will not sprout negative surprises as so often happens when plans
are not carefully laid. From my perspective, her priorities are healthy and those
that I also list as most important. Providing jobs that will fit in with the subsistence lifestyle allowing us to live the
way we have found works best while
enticing a very different type of tourist.
Imagine, people coming here that want
to learn from the people of Molokai instead of folks that want to change you to
fit their mold?
Lyla first learns about the problems, then she gathers mana`o, then she
creates solutions. I could go on and on
about how she does this, but better you
see for yourself by going to lylaberg.
com and reading about her vision. She’s
not full of shibai, like most politicians,
because she is not a career politician.
She has worked with other “newbies”
in the Legislature over the last six years,
and has accomplished massive amounts
of legislation that has made our lives
better. But she has done it without sacrificing her ethics or her belief in the Hawaiian culture as her guide.
Thank you all for your kindness to
me. I love this place and it’s because you
are all so very, very loveable.
A hui ho,
Nancy Lee Potter
