HNN Hawaii Island Reunion: Moana’s Auli’i Cravalho

Itʻs always funny how the word “starstruck” works.  Iʻm looking at a young woman who Iʻve seen on TV LOTS of times even though her star performance has yet to be seen by everyone.  Sheʻs pretty, well spoken and has a flower in her hair.  Despite the EARLY hour of the morning, she is chipper and energetic.  Auliʻi Cravalho is standing in front of me and I have to smile.  Iʻm suddenly proud of this Hawaii girl. […]

Hawaii vs. UNLV: Homecoming!

Homecoming dates back to the early 1900’s when schools like Baylor, Southwestern, Illinois, and Missouri had “homecoming” where they had big banquets, parades and events that was climatically led up to a football game where lots of former residents and school attendees would participate.  Things were much simpler then and people would make the pilgrimage to “go back home” for homecoming. I’m not sure homecoming means the same here in Hawaii.  Lots of students […]

If you want to read more on the history of this extraordinary entertainer and human being, Susan Essoyan wrote a wonderful piece in todayʻs Honolulu Star-Advertiser. […]

I Made It Thru High School Because Of My Teacher

(photo credit: Newton Koshi/Konawaena High School Band Alumni FB Page) Last week Keoki Kerr (who now works for HSTA) asked me if I would mention last week that it was Teachers Appreciation Week perhaps talk with one of my teachers and do an interview by phone. It’s a wonderful thing that highlights the teachers that we have in our public schools. However, on that same day he asked; my MOST INFLUENTIAL teacher passed away just this past week. When I was a sophmore in high school, I was a drifter. I drifted inbetween groups of people and my grades weren’t very good. I was lacking direction and spent my days […]
