Interpret Hawaii was called on
again in service to the community.
Interpret Hawaii a part of the Hospitality program here on campus,
has successfully negotiated a contract with the Greater East Honolulu
Community Alliance, or GEHCA.
GEHCA is a volunteer-based
organization consisting of business
people~ elected officials, and concerned citizens from Waikiki, Kapahulu, Palolo, and Kaimuki. An
informational flier about GEHCA
states "we believe that you are the
expert of what our communities
want and need to thrive."
The contract for Interpret Hawaii
consists of two main parts that will
help build the Waikiki-KapahuluKaimuki Circulator Trolley Project.
First Interpret Hawaii will create
the curriculum and training protocols for the docents of the trolleys.
Then it will create two walking tours
along the trolley's route. If you are
wondering what a docent is, it's a
person who is a cultural specialist
or historian who will present all the
information on a guided tour.
The Trolley Project will provide
direct convenient transportation
along the commercial corridor that
runs through Waikiki, Kapahulu,
and Kaimuki. The Trolley will also
be a key component to stimulating
the economy by familiarizing local
people and visitors to these areas.
The Trolley is brought to you
by GEHCA, The city and County
of Honolulu, Mayor Jeremy Harris,
and Councilmember Duke Bainum.
For additional information on the
trolley you can contact any one
of the GEHCA community representatives. For Kaimuki call Ginny
Meade at 737-4125, for Kapahulu
call Dennis Iwanaga at 732-6473,
and for Waikiki call Karen Ah Mai
at 732-7321.
Trolleys are also equipped with
wheelchair lifts for the handicapped.

You know Temurera Morrison as
the notorious wife beater "Jake"
from the acclaimed movie "Once
were Warriors" fame. What you
didn't know is that this Mighty
Maori actor is corning here. Yes here
to KCC to see you.
He has resurrected his infamous
character "Jake the Mus" (as in
muscle) for the sequel, "What
Becomes of the Broken Hearted,"
due out this year.
You can imagine my jitters when
I approached this foreboding figure.
"Mmmmm, Mr. Morrison," I said.
He swung around enthusiastically,
"Yes Love"
"I'm from KCC . . ." and then
I don't remember what gibberish
spewed forth but the next thing
I knew we were taking pictures,
laughing and making arrangements
for a visit to our school.
Morrison's more than just brawn,
he's got brains and talent too. I saw
him jump up on stage at Gordon
Biersch, grab an electric guitar and
rip through a rendition of Santana
that had the crowd cheering.
He whipped the women into a
frenzy with an encore song that
had the crowd swaying and singing.
When asked if he was married he
testified that he was "too young."
This multitalented performer has
quite a speckled past, as a radio OJ,
TV researcher and reported, advisor on the academy award-winning
movie "The Piano," and, if that's not
enough, he is considered the New
Zealand equivalent of Jerry Clooney
in a TV soap opera titled "Shortland

Clarification ...
Oversimplifying a
Complex Issue
by Lorraine Fabro
Editorial Assistant
It was incorrectly reported that
a Muslim shrine was destroyed by
Jewish settlers and Israeli guards
when in fact Joseph's tomb is a
Jewish place of reverence. It was the
Palestinian guards who were there to
protect the tomb that lead a mob of
marauding Muslims in the destruction of the holy site.
Time reports the following, "On
October 7, a Palestinian mob demolished Joseph's Tomb, a Jewish holy
place within the West bank, after
besieged Israeli troops withdrew
from the site with assurances that
Arafat's gendarmes would protect it.
In retaliation, the Jews in Tiberias
vandalized an ancient mosque."
In a good faith effort to right a
wrong, I contacted members of both
the Jewish and Muslim communities to check the accuracy of the
report. Both parties urged me not
to believe everything I read. Clearly,
it was negligent of me to oversimplify this conflict. The division
between these Biblical half-brothers
was forged nearly 3,000 years ago.
Any effort to pinpoint one event
as the cause of the unrest is woefully inaccurate. The editorial was
supposed to highlight the wrongs
committed in God's name and the
partie's inability to adhere to a progressive and lasting peace process.
The article was not so much about
who did what to who, as it was about
two peoples so polarized by their
nationalism and religion that they
would choose to die as enemies than
to live in peace as brothers.

Morality vs. Legality
By Lucas Bejar
Columbia Daily Spectator
(Columbia U.)ll/1012000
presidential election of 2000 will
perhaps go down as the closest in
United States history. A few hundred
votes in one state will ultimately
decide who will govern the country
for the next four years. With such a
huge burden on these votes and the
state overall, it would behoove of
the election committees in Florida
to get the story straight and actually
interpret the voice of the people.
After all, the election is nothing
more than the people electing their
leader. However, in Florida, this
does not seem to be the case. The
now-notorious case of Palm Beach
County is a perfect example.
The ballot utilized in this highly
Democratic county has been criticized by many as being misleading.
Why should we mislead the people
voting? Some argue that it doesn't
matter if people were confused; the
fact is they still voted. I simply ask
these people, is that really so? Does
it matter whether or not every single
vote was counted? Does it matter if
people voted for the wrong candidate by accident? The simple answer
to such simple questions-of course
it matters.
For starters, 19,200 votes in this
county alone were not counted
because the voter had punched in
two or more boxes for one position.
In the -state as a whole, 29,000 ballots were not counted for the same
reason. Thus, 66 percent of the
state's total uncounted ballots due
to this one problem came from one
county. If this one county had 66
percent of the state population, this
would make perfect sense. The truth,
however, is that Palm Beach county
has a fraction of that population,
only 10 percent. It is clear that the
Palm Beach voters were confused.
Regardless, many will argue that
there is no legal reasoning for a revote. Rather than consider the legal
matters of a dispute, I will instead
focus on the moral grounds for a
re-vote. Our great country grants
everyone the right to vote for the
candidate of his or her choice. When
19,200 people in one county alone
are denied this right, or rather their
votes are nullified, this right is
thrown into question.
Surely one can argue that they
had the right to vote, instead they
just threw away this right by voting
twice on one ballot.
However, the founding fathers
surely implied that along with the
right to vote comes the right for that
vote to count. It does not take a politicaljuggemaut like George W. Bush
to realize that these 19,200 votes did
not count. President Clinton said,
'The people have now spoken..." in
reference to the election. Indeed they
did and in mass numbers. Unfortunately for our democracy, in some
select counties throughout the country, their voices were not heard.
Palm Beach County should not
have are-vote to be fair. Palm Beach
should have a re-vote to uphold the
Constitution of the United States
of America. Palm Beach should revote to allow every single . citizen
who so chooses to elect the next
president of the United States. Palm
Beach should re-vote to allow every
vote to count. It is not a matter of
whether or not Palm Beach should
legally be required to do this or
whether a judge decides that the
county should re-vote. The moralconscience of this currently chaotic
nation should be the element calling for a re-vote while the nation's
future hangs in the balance.
Without a re-vote, the legitimacy
of the president-elect would be
greatly challenged by all those who
accidentally voted for an undesired
choice as well as any flourishing
democracies abroad that look to the
United States as an example of dignity.
Without are-vote, the legitimacy
of the president-elect would be
greatly challenged by all those who
accidentally voted for an undesired
choice as well as any flourishing
democracies abroad that look to the
United States as an example of dignity.
For these reasons, Palm Beach
County in Florida should be forced
to re-vote as to eliminate voter irregularities that could unjustly sway the
election to a candidate that would
not otherwise deserve to win.

Paving the Way for Everyone
on Campus to Comply With ADA
Iris Cahill
Copy Editor
Very few people have been unable
to notice the construction that has
been going on around campus for
quite sometime. Since Spring 2000,
construction workers have been retrofitting sidewalks, rest rooms and
even buildings in order to meet with
ADA standards.
The Americans With Disabilities
Act, or ADA, has established numerous guidelines to insure that individuals with a physical handicap
are able to negotiate public areas
safely and with relative ease. While
Kapi 'olani Community College has
ensured ADA compliance in the
past, the school has made a major
effort to conform to the most recent
of these regulations.
"We have tried to make pathways
all across campus that provide accessibility to those with disabilities,"
says KCC Auxiliary Service's John
As of January 2000, a walkway
that leads from Diamond Head Road
all the way up to the Kopiko building
on campus has been made available
to handicapped students, visitors and
faculty members. This walkway provides ramps and handle bars in order
to facilitate a wheelchair bound individual.
According to Messina, similar
ramps and handle bars have been
added to the path that runs through
the large field in front of the cafeteria. The ADA specifies that any sidewalk or walkway that has a higher
slope than the percentage currently
allowed, ramps must be added.
However, Messina notes that KCC
had constructed the ramps before
this particular regulation had been
Landings have also been provided along the pathways in order
for individuals in wheel chairs to
turn around or pass other wheelchair
bound students.
The major contractor handling the
retrofitting task is Allied Builder.
Thomas Lim was the architect that
designed the appearance of the retrofitted college under the Kober Hanssen Mitchell architecture company.
Aside from the walkways, KCC
has retrofitted three of the campus'
major buildings: Ohia, lliahi, and
Lama. Handicap stall in the rest
rooms were redone in order to create
more space for individuals in wheelchairs. Doorknobs that are easier for
disabled students to utilize have also
replaced older and less functional
handles. Automatic doors were also
added to some of the restroom
entrances on the top floor of lliahi.
Funding for the project was provided by the Department of Accountings and General Services. Although

Walkways like this one, which fronts the KCC quadrangle, had to be retrofitted to comply with ADA requirements.
the amount of financial support
provided was not sufficient to retrofit the entire campus, as John Messina would have liked, the money
received was sufficient to begin
making the changes needed. DAGS
has also provided some additional
funding to beautify the pathway in
the cactus garden, which is currently
open to the public.
For example, the new lights and
rose color cement used along the
garden's meandering walkway was
made possible by DAGS' beautifica-
tion allowance.
"Overall we are pleased with
everything," expresses Messina.
"People were inconvenienced [while
construction was being done], but
we have all benefited."

Shallow Shallow Deep peiformed admirably, but the audience didn 't rise to
meet their enthusiasm.
by Iris Cahill
Sean Carillo and his three man
band, Shallow Shallow Deep, filled
the cafeteria with an assortment of
easygoing sounds as students and
faculty grabbed some lunch. Though
the artists demonstrated more than
their fair share of talent, the lack of
enthusiasm from the crowd proved
to be even more uncomfortable to
the group than the lack of air-conditioning.
Shallow Shallow Deep was on
campus Wednesday, Nov.8 from 12
noon to I: 15 p.m., playing an assortment of well known, songs such as
Santana's Smooth and Eric Clapton's
Tears In Heaven. Their performance
consisted primarily of adult contemporary hits as well as some local
favorites. The band also accepted
musical requests from several students in the audience.
"We try to do some music that
pleases everyone", says Carillo of
the various types of songs his band
performed. Carillo provided the lead
vocals while playing the acoustic
guitar. Fellow band members Shawn
Pimentao and Kale Chang also
showed an equal talent with classical guitar and percussion respectively.
Though the group was rather
entertaining, they were met with a
less than receptive audience. One
major factors perhaps contributing
to the absence of crowd enthusiasm
was the hot and stuffy atmosphere
that has become characteristic of the
cafeteria since the air conditioning
went down several weeks ago.
However, Shallow Shallow Deep
still proved to be a rather entertaining and able band. The variety of
melodies and the good vocal quality
of Carillo have made this a group to
watch out for in up coming years.

The truth about cults
Shayla Nakashima
Editorial Assistant
Scary, bad, demonic . . .This is
what usually comes to mind when
people hear the word "cult." But is
a so-called "cult" really as dangerous as it sounds, especially here in
Hawai 'i? People often view cults as
satanic worshippers who go around
cutting people up and drinking their
blood. This is not so, but cultish
behavior can have results that may
not be as gory, but can be equally
disturbing in terms of social and
psychological impact.
What are "cults"?
There are actually several meanings for the term "cult." Just for
the record, let's set a few things
straight. One definiton, (from
www.religioustolerance.com) states
that a cult is "a particular form or
system of religious worship, especially in reference to its external rites
and ceremonies."
Another definition sates a cult
could also be "a devotion to a particular person or thing."
A negative definition is "a religious group with a single charismatic leader who brainwashes and
uses mind control techniques over
members." This last definition is the
one most often associated with the
term cult.
There are in fact many religious
groups, including some that we
may think are mainstream organizations, that are targeted by some anticult organizations. These include the
Brethren, Christian Science, Church
of Scientology, the Mormons, Falun
Gong, The Family, Hare Krishna,
Jehova's Witnesses, Neo-Paganism,
New Age, Santeria, Satanism, Unification Church, Vodun (Voo-Doo),
The Way, and Wicca.
Some faith groups are categorized as "doomsday cults," and these
are the groups that have proven to
be destructive and dangerous. The
Solar Temple, The Way, Heaven's
Gate, Brand Davidians, The People's Temple, and Aum Shinri Kyo
are a few examples of groups that
have engaged in violence either
against others and/or towards their
own members.
These groups have been involved
with mass suicides, mass murders
and violent rituals. A central basis of
their faiths revolves around Biblical
beliefs concerning the book of Rev-.
Mind control is a major factor in
these cults. These groups often partake in repetition of prayers, whicm
can become auto-hypnotic exercises
that generated fear and paranoia;
viewing the outside world as threatening; restricting criticism of the
leadership or group policies; isolation from outside contacts; setting
forth ethical guidelines; and selfproclaimed "end of the world" scenarios. These are all characteristics
of brainwashing and mind-control
The average reader is probably
shaking his/her head right now and
thinking to themselves, "Give me a
break! I'm not naive enough to fall
for that crap." Guess what? It's very
easy to get sucked into the beliefs of
even the most seemingly harmless
of religious groups without understanding some of their darker influ-

ences. A close friend may be getting
involved with such people at this
very moment. After all, it is said
that college campuses, so full of
young people, are a prime recruiting grounds for such groups.
One recent case happened right
here in Honolulu. The student was
attending the University of Hawai ' i
at Manoa, and loved theater and
music. She loved God and attended
church weekly. Then one day, she
disappeared. Friends of the 19-yearold girl were baffled at the possibility that their long-time pal had run
away and left all her beloved possessions behind.
Confused parents received nothing but an abrupt note from her a
couple of days later, stating that she
was fine and simply going traveling
because she "found God."
Because of the pattern and her
actions before she disappeared, it
is believed that the Brethren, (or
Brotherhood) is the cult involved
with the disappearance. Although
the Brethren are non-violent and
Christian-based, friends say that she
was "totally not the type" to ever
join a religious organization such
as this one. But who is? One never
This situation occurs too often.
There are no definite signs, because
conversion can happen so quickly.
And although the Brethren and
many other organizations are not
by definition doomsday cults, the
damage is permanent.
Family and friends suffer in knowing that a loved one is out there, and
that they are completely powerless
in finding them.
Be careful how you use the word
"cult," because it can mean a variety
of things, but more importantly, be
careful when someone approaches
you and begins . to enforce beliefs
upon you ...
This ain't no soap opera, that's
for sure. "Beyond Soap" is an art
show opening at the University of

Special to Kapi 'o
So, what is the big hype about
night clubs anyway? As many readers may be thinking, "I'm a college
student, I study and work all the
time. I'm broke most of the time
and I don't know that many people.
How is going out to a night club
going to benefit me?" Some of the
reasons below might persuade you
to get up and get to a night club:
1) Special Events-For almost
every day of the week, there is some
kind of promotion or contest going
on. Each night club in Honolulu is
competitive and fiercely determined
to present marketable strategies that
will draw clients into their establishments. Everywhere you look, there
is always some kind of event taking
place at different nightclubs. From
posters to flyers, even our local radio
stations such as Xtreme Radio 104.3
to 1-94 is getting in on the action.
On Sundays, a lot of college students prefer to go to Sexy Sundays
at Venus Nightclub or Brew Moon.
At Venus, located next to Ala Moana
Shopping Center, all the "hot" dressing people get in for free.
Brew Moon, located upstairs at
Ward Warehouse, draws in a lot of
"ravers" who dance to techno and
trance music, a blend of upbeat,
booming sounds that makes you feel
like you just did an exercise routine.
On Mondays there is Pango Pango
playing trance music.
"Brok Dik Mondays" is at the
Red Lion Nightclub, located on
Lewers Street. This Monday special draws in a crowd because of
the cheap 75-cent draft beers and $3
pitchers all night long.
There's "Longboard Tuesdays" at
Pipline Cafe with 1-94 giveaways
and dancing with DJ Euphorik.
On Wednesday, Zanzabar Nightclub (formerly Maharaja, located in
Waikiki Trade Center) is the place
to be for the ultimate Heine search.
There is a $250 contest for whoever
has the best heine-in other words,
who's got the best behind. And no,
you don't have to strip down to
show off your rear end.
On Thursday, there is Paddlers'
Zanzabar sports a posh interior. -photo courtesy of Zanzabar.
Niqht at Oceans at Restaurant Row
where you get in free if you wear
aloha attire. Also on Thursdays,
Coyote 808 at World's (formerly
World Cafe) holds contests involving women dancing on the bar.
As for Friday and Saturdays, every
nightclub goes off on their own wild
2) Drink specials-Most people
love bargains, especially when it
comes to drinks. At Pipeline Cafe,
located behind Cutter Volkswagen
by Ala Moana Boulevard, there are
$2 drinks and pupus all night long
on Thursday nights. Also, on Thursdays at Pango Pango, you can get
drinks for as little as $1. Who can
beat that!
--One word of caution, though:
Drinking is meant for enjoyment, not
destruction, so please drink responsibly. . . and always have a designated driver. Remember that the next
time you go out.
3) Music-Ranging from alternative to hip-hop, trance to techno,
and Latin to pop, no matter which
one you listen to, dancing is one of
the most enjoyable ways to spend a
night. People of all ages can get on
the dance floor and groove the night
For example,
there is a
well-known fellow by the name of
Mr. Rawlins, who frequents many
nightclubs around Honolulu. He
dances and keeps up with young
folks, despite his 70-something years
of age. He has such positive energy
that it is exemplified through his
hand movements and funky dancemoves that are sort of like an older
James Brown.
4) Meeting potential friends-A
lot of people are in denial about
going to nightclubs to scope out the
scene, otherwise known as chicks,
studs, babes, whatever. . .Isn't it
only so obvious that when a person
passes by a group of the opposite
sex, eyes start wandering around?
Meeting and making new friends
can open up opportunities, both in
business as well as on a personal
level. You never know; that cute
hottie sitting at the bar could be
some CEO of a company that you
might be interested in working for.
Or that really hot Jason Momoa
(from Baywatch) look-a-like, sitting at the table next to you could
actually be Jason Momoa. Stranger
things have happened, but you might
never get the chance if you don't get
out of your house and experience
the nightclub scene.
If you feel insecure and don't
want to get lost in a rowdy scene,
at all costs avoid the weekends.
Instead, opt for a Sunday or Wednesday night. It can be hard on weekdays, especially with school being
in session, so just don't stay out too
late. All you need is to be able to balance study with fun-doing both in
proper doses, and then you're set!

Special Student Services
Another Remarkable
Providing For Students With Disabilities
By Sharon Winfield
Do you have a disability that interferes with optimum performance in
your classes? Have you assessed
your health and its impact on your
ability to learn?
The Special Student Services
Office (SSSO) located in 'Ilima 105
does more than help students with
mobility disabilities. They serve students with hidden disabilities such
as chronic asthma and carpal tunnel
syndrome. Every person with a disability is legally protected from discrimination. Federal law mandates
accommodations (determined on an
individual basis) to make education
fully accessible.
SSSO takes an active interest in
the progress of students. It takes proactive steps to help students accomplish their goals. You don't need to
wait until a problem occurs to seek
counseling. Counselors are available
to discuss various topics that may
not have direct bearing on academics. SSSO also provide a wide range
of services to faculty and administration to make the campus and
institution accessible for everyone.
Formerly called the Help Center,
the office received odd requests from
students to help them move or take
them to the UH Manoa library. The
staff decided to change the name to
clarify that the help provided is for
students with mental and physical
M.J. Haverly began working as
a counselor here in 1983 and was
later promoted to coordinator of

for college. However, Haverly shares
these success stories.
"There was a very immature student who came in directly from high
school on our remedial level. She
M.J. Havery: "My personal goal is that one day
Kapi'olani will be truly barrier free, physically and
support services. Her office serves
between 150-200 students each academic year. In post-secondary education, support service is provided
on a voluntary basis. Students must
identify themselves to SSSO and
provide documentation of their disability in order to receive notetakers,
extended time for tests, classroom
accommodations and specialized
Early registration and academic
monitoring are included in the valuable benefits students may receive.
SSSO collaborates with counselors
in Liberal Arts and other departments to assist in resolving particular
problems that arise. Thus, students
tend to have more contact with their
SSSO counselor because of the personal attention and increased comfort level.
Studies show that students with

for comforting. However, after several years, through her own motivation and persistence, she graduated
with a bachelor's degree in psychology and I believe is now teaching in
our public schools.
"Oftentimes our students leave us
and come back. One student returned
after eight years with more focus
on her education, She graduated and
now attends Manoa,"
If you have a low income, physical and/or mental disability, or are a
first generation college student, you
may qualify for the Trio program.
This program provides networking,
social interaction, cultural activities,
and emotional support. The Trio
program has exciting plans to add
peer mentoring and career exploration activities in an effort to improve
retention and enhance the educa-

However, her influence extends far
beyond individual students. The
SSSO supports instructors anddepartments through ongoing communication. It presents annual
sensitivity training and workshops
to faculty members. Instructors also
receive feedback from students.
"We insure campus wide awareness and understanding of the
campus responsibility," says Haverly,
"We provide and insure that all
aspects of Kapi'olani is in compliance with the law. This includes
working with custodians, cafeteria
staff, and student workers in the
bookstore and library."
"I think that the students should
be very proud that they are at
Kap'iolani. They have so much to
offer. Our campus also offers so
many opportunities I think that students should take advantage of them.
My personal goal is that one day
Kapi'olani will be truly barrier free,
physically and psychologically. Our
lives are too short. Let's all reach
out to each other with understanding and sensitivity. I think if we all
practice this in our lives it would be
a different kind of world."

Just another remarkable performance! On Monday, November 6,
the local group, Tahiti Toa, put on a
terrific show for everyone who was
fortunate enough to be in the KCC
cafeteria around 12 noon.
Culture-enriching tunes were performed by six performers, using an
assortment of Tahitian instruments.
A mixture of dancers took the stage
to enhance the beautiful melodies.
These talented young people
donned many traditional Tahitian
attire for the various numbers performed. The entertaining conclusion
to this show was when audience
members were invited to join the
dancers on-stage for some "Tahitan
dance lessons."
Tahiti Toa's talent-filled presentation proved to be one of the best
performances held in the cafeteria
all semester, according to many
students who enjoyed the performance.

building into a ghoulish haunted
Heading the project was the lead
ghoulie himself, Gene Phillips, who
with the aid of other IMTS workers
and student help created the frightfest.
Construction began on the
Wednesday before Halloween and
finishing touches were made on the
day before the opening. In less than
one week, the Naio's lower level
was covered in fake cobwebs, black
curtains and enough black lights
to challenge even the best haunted
houses on the island.
Although the student body atlarge was not permitted to go through
the KCC Haunted House, some students were given the opportunity
to experience the fun fright. The
entrants in the third annual Ghost
Story Contest and participants in the
OSA Halloween party were given
the chance to go through the house,
as were the student volunteers who
helped make the Halloween celebration possible.
KCC's Haunted House opened its
doors from mid-morning to 4 p.m.
A sizable portion of the college's
faculty and staff went through the
house of terror, and many of them
returned quite impressed with the
levels of sophistication and creativity seen in IMTS' work.
With ghouls lurking around every
dark corner, creepy hands grabbing
at your ankles, and the wonderful
costumes of the IMTS gang, this
haunted house proved to be a delightful terror to all who were fortunate
enough to experience it.
