one punt, one pass and one kick, and a
score is calculated based on distance and
accuracy, according to NFL PPK’s website.
The top finishers in the county will qualify
for the sectional competition. The top four
finishers in each age group at sectionals will
advance to a national competition that usually takes place in January. In 2010, the national competition was held at Qualcomm
Stadium before a San Diego Chargers playoff game. More than three million boys and
girls from around the country take part in
the PPK Competition every year.

Ranch sells land to University of Hawaii
By Eileen Chao | Managing Editor
Kamehameha V. Highway
he University of Hawaii (UH) Maui College, Molokai Education Center will be able to expand their facilities and
services now that Molokai Properties Ltd., also known as
Molokai Ranch, sold them a 3.2-acre parcel of land surrounding the current campus in Kaunakakai. The final purchase
price has not been disclosed, though the Dispatch reported in
2011 an agreement had been made for $500,000
Donna Haytko-Paoa, site coordinator for the college, said
the land will offer the opportunity to expand the campus to
include such possible additions as a natural science and marine
center, a large amphitheater and additional lecture spaces.
The newly-purchased area is located west of the campus
towards Duke Maliu Park. Before the college was established
at the site in 1999, the entire area, owned by Molokai Ranch,
was leased to Monsanto and used as corn fields.
“This purchase will eventually expand the college’s Molokai Education Center and strengthen our capacity to provide
more higher education and economic opportun ities,” said UH
Maui College Chancellor Dr. Clyde Sakamoto in a news release.
A Long Wait
Public Road
At the start of last school year,
Hao promised students that if they
made the state Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) standards this year, he
would dye his hair green and spike
it. MHS failed to meet the benchmark
this year, in large part due to a technical error, according to Hao.
In order to meet the safe harbor
provision -- another way to satisfy
the proficiency percentage targets in
reading and math under the federal
No Child Left Behind law -- a school
must show 10 percent improvement
from the prior year in test scores, as
well as meet a certain percentage of
graduate rates. Last year, MHS students improved 13 percent in reading --from 48 to 61 percent -- and 21
percent in math --from 15 to 36 percent. With these improvements, MHS
should have made AYP safe harbor

graduation rate requirement was 82

care facility, student meeting area, a natural science and marine
center and a large amphitheater that would host each year’s
graduation ceremony as well as serve as a venue for the community.
These dreams may become a reality now that the college
has finally acquired the land to build it on, according to HaytkoPaoa.
Currently, the college is working with PBR Hawaii --an
urban planning firm --to draft a long-range development plan
that Haytko-Paoa hopes to guide the college’s mission for the
next 10 years at least. The plan will be reviewed and finalized
by the Molokai Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC)
next year.
“We’re not there yet, but I’d love to see it within the next
decade,” said Haytko-Paoa.
For Haytko-Paoa, who has worked for the college for the
past 28 years, the acquisition of this land has been a long time
In the original Molokai Community Plan drafted in 1994,
the college and county had set aside 15 acres of land for the college. Because funds were not available at the time, they split the
development into phases, starting with the existing two acres
of land, donated by the Ranch in 1993. That original acreage
allowed the college to establish their permanent home with a Developing Partnerships

Two New Midwives
at Hospital
MGH News Release
Molokai General Hospital (MGH)
would like to officially welcome two new
certified Nurse Midwives, Jennifer Baumstark and Katie Bussard. They bring to
Molokai a plethora of education, knowledge and experience. We are confident that
they will meet and exceed the expectations
of the patients they serve here at the Women’s Health Center.
Jennifer Baumstark graduated from
Illinois State University with a bachelor’s
degree in biology and chemistry. She continued her education at Mennonite College of Nursing, after which she received
her master’s degree from the University
of Illinois-Chicago. Over the past 20 years,
she has worked in all areas of midwifery.
However, after working in a hospital that
delivered an average of 22 babies a day,
Jennifer had a desire to focus more on individualized patient care. She hopes to give
time, devotion and encouragement to each
woman she encounters, regardless of their

years. In 2010, she graduated from Frontier
Nursing University --the birthplace of midwifery and advanced practice nursing in the
U.S. --with a master’s degree concentrating
on Nurse-Midwifery. Before moving with
her family to Molokai, Katie worked with
Native Americans on a Navajo Reservation
in Arizona, blending traditional birthing
practices with modern medicine to deliver
family-centric midwifery care. Katie understands the personal care and support
a midwife offers expectant mothers from
first-hand experience.
“It is my hope to provide the same personalized, high-quality and evidence-based
care to the women I service every day,” she
said. “I am grateful and honored to be given the privilege of serving the women and
families of Molokai.”

Bio-Logical Capital Agrees
to Buy Hana Ranch
By Eileen Chao | Managing Editor
ana Ranch Partners signed a
sale agreement last week to
pass ownership of its cattle
ranch on Maui to Bio-Logical Capital,
the land development company that
teamed up with Pattern Energy last
year and formed joint venture Molokai Renewables to study the feasibility of developing a 200-megawatt
wind farm on Molokai.
Guy Kaulukukui, Bio-Logical Capital’s senior vice president, said the company plans to preserve and possibly expand Hana Ranch’s cattle operations.
“We are truly humbled to take on
the kuleana of this remarkable ranch,”
said Kaulukukui in a news release. “It is
at once a privilege and a great responsibility… [Hana has] the potential to become a
model for sustainable ranching and farming practices in the state.”
The Ranch started in 1944 with only
1,400 acres of land and a herd of cattle
brought over from Molokai, according
to The Maui News. Today, it boasts 1,200
head of cattle on 4,500 acres of pasture.
While the selling price for the deal was
not disclosed, Hana Ranch is listed at $55
million by Island Sotheby’s International
For those on Molokai concerned
with the implications of Bio-Logical’s increased presence on Maui for the widelycontested windmill project on the Friendly Island, there has been no identified
connection between the two projects.
“The wind energy project envisaged
by Molokai Renewables has the potential
to provide the Molokai community with
the chance to invest in its own future at a
level that may be unattainable by any other means,” said Kaulukukui in an email.
He stressed that Bio-Logical Capital
will not be pursuing a wind energy project in Hana.
Senator J. Kalani English, a Hana native and resident, called Bio-Logical Capital a “natural fit”.
“I believe Bio-Logical Capital’s deep
respect for the land, passion for thoughtful and sensitive stewardship of Hana
Ranch, and willingness to contribute to
the betterment of our families makes
them a natural fit with my hometown of
Hana,” said English.
Bio-Logical Capital will conduct a
due diligence phase to learn more about
the ranch’s potential and to hear from the
community before finalizing the sale.
Smuggling Deer Across
By Eileen Chao | Managing Editor
elicopter pilot Thomas Leroy
Hauptman pleaded guilty
to illegally transporting axis
deer from Maui to the Big Island, on
Monday. He could be sentenced to
over $10,000 in fines and up to a year
in prison.
The alleged animal smugglers
flew four axis deer from Maui to the Big
Island to be used by hunters as living
targets, and brought back about a dozen mouflon sheep from the Big Island
to a Maui hunting ranch back in 2009.
The owner of the ranch, Jeffrey
Scott Grundhauser, is also facing possible jail time for selling wildlife without
the proper permit.
Because axis deer and mouflon
sheep are not native species to Hawaii,
their presence has damaged fragile
native ecosystems and farms on the
islands where they’ve become established. Many conservationists are worried that the introduction of these species may cause detrimental damage for
their island.
“Some of our most endangered
dry forest community on Maui would
definitely be negatively impacted if
sheep got established on Maui,” said

up a confidential, toll-free tipline.
“The DLNR will vigorously investigate and prosecute anyone attempting to illegally transport and release
deer between the islands in the future,”
said DLNR Chairperson William J.

Making Middle School
Feel Like Home
By Kalei “Pumpkin” Moss
When I was in sixth grade, the
thought of entering middle school
was quite intimidating. This summer, Molokai Middle School
(MMS) tried to make the transition
for students a little bit easier with
a summer program funded by the
21st Century grant program.
The summer program, open
to current MMS students and incoming seventh graders, offered
classes in academics, physical fitness and arts and crafts.
MMS strove to increase student achievement this summer by
challenging learners in various areas of education, especially math
and science. Students learned
how to properly create a science
project, review the scientific process, complete experiments and
document research. Students also
practiced reading comprehension
and writing skills.
In addition to academic classes, the program offered physical
fitness classes that incorporated
nutrition, weight and exercise
concepts with fun team-building
activities, which helped the new
seventh graders make friends.
Continued From pg. 1
Hao said that the graduation rate
submitted was an error -- the number
reported actually applied to the class
of 2011. A preliminary report showed a
graduation rate for the class of 2012 to
be 86 percent, accounting for 11 students
with documentation that opted for alternative GED programs. Hao submitted
an appeal to the Department of Education (DOE), but it was not accepted.
Still, Hao looks forward to the new
school year, considering possible motivational options -- among them, having
his hair braided into cornrows or lengthened with extensions, he joked at the
school community council (SCC) meeting last week.
“I didn’t dye my hair because technically we didn’t make AYP, but we definitely need to do something for [the students’] achievements,” said Hao.
A Busy Summer
While the students have been out
Lastly, there were also classes
in drama, art and sewing. Beginning and advanced sewing classes
were open to the public, and students made their own patchwork
pillowcases and were given a
binder of sample stitches, helpful
hints and other tools that would
guide them through future sewing projects. Students also participated in Hawaiian values classes
which helped link Hawaiian values such as aloha and laulima--to
work together - with everyday
practices, past and present. They
learned the importance of community, ending the summer with
a fieldtrip to clean up a beach and
work in a lo`i.
If you are interested in learning more about the 21st Century
grant program at MMS, contact
Lyn Bonk at 567-6940 or Sandra
Czajkowski at 658-0609. MMS was
successful in making school feel a
little more like home, as confirmed
by incoming seventh grader Nikki
Augustiro, who said she enjoyed
getting to know her soon-to-be
classmates. Have fun in school,
new seventh graders, it’s the beginning of a new adventure.
for summer vacation, MHS has still been
buzzing with improvements. Most notable among these is the establishing of
two farms on campus -one commercial
farm and one permaculture farm. The
two projects were made possible by
community partnerships --Monsanto
helped clear the land, Mycogen provided irrigation, and grassroots organization Sust`aina ble Molokai put on education workshops for teachers and staff.
“We definitely have different models of agriculture now, which is important especially because we come from
a plantation history,” said Hao. “We’re
teaching students to look at agriculture
as agribusiness, a viable option or way
of living.” He hopes to secure a federal
grant, “From the Garden to the Table,”
that would allow MHS to use the food
they grow in the cafeteria.
MHS also received support from 10
AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers this summer, many of whom were recent MHS
graduates. In addition to mentoring
MHS students for their senior projects,
the volunteers cleaned and arranged
classrooms and worked on establishing
the permaculture farm, including the

sea salt company Pacifica Hawaii –
Sweet and Salty. After months of recipe development, Pacifica owner and
salt master Nancy Gove released the
product – her ninth recipe -- internationally this month.
Sweet and Salty combines two flavors that truly compliment and complete each other. This sweet salt can
be added to your favorite recipes for

To create her salt, Molokai resident Gove first filters sea water, then
purifies it with ultra-violet light, after which it is pure enough to satisfy

The Molokai Dispatch • Aug 29, 2012 •
ARIES (March 21-April 19): I’m afraid your vibes are
slightly out of tune. Can you do something about that, please?
Meanwhile, your invisible friend could really use a Tarot reading, and your houseplants would benefit from a dose of
Mozart. Plus -- and I hope I’m not being too forward here
-- your charmingly cluttered spots are spiraling into chaotic
sprawl, and your slight tendency to overreact is threatening
to devolve into a major proclivity. As for that rather shabby
emotional baggage of yours: Would you consider hauling it
to the dump? In conclusion, my dear Ram, you’re due for a
few adjustments.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Is happiness mostly just an
absence of pain? If so, I bet you’ve been pretty content lately.
But what if a more enchanting and exciting kind of bliss were
available? Would you have the courage to go after it? Could
you summon the chutzpah and the zeal and the visionary
confidence to head out in the direction of a new frontier of
joy? I completely understand if you feel shy about asking for
more. You might worry that to do so would be greedy, or put
you at risk of losing what you have already scored. But I feel it’s
my duty to cheer you on. The potential rewards looming just
over the hump are magnificent.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’ve got some medicine for you
to try, Gemini. It’s advice from the writer Thomas Merton. “To
allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting
concerns,” he wrote, “to surrender to too many demands, to
commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times.”
It’s always a good idea to heed that warning, of course. But it’s
especially crucial for you right now. The best healing work you
can do is to shield your attention from the din of the outside
world and tune in reverently to the glimmers of the inside
CANCER (June 21-July 22): I dreamed you were a magnanimous taskmaster nudging the people you care about
to treat themselves with more conscientious tenderness.
You were pestering them to raise their expectations and
hew to higher standards of excellence. Your persistence was
admirable! You coaxed them to waste less time and make
long-range educational plans and express themselves with
more confidence and precision. You encouraged them to give
themselves a gift now and then and take regular walks by
bodies of water. They were suspicious of your efforts to make
them feel good, at least in the early going. But eventually they
gave in and let you help them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In the spirit of Sesame Street, I’m
happy to announce that this week is brought to you by the
letter T, the number 2, and the color blue. Here are some of the
“T” words you should put extra emphasis on: togetherness,
trade-offs, tact, timeliness, tapestry, testability, thoroughness, teamwork, and Themis (goddess of order and justice).
To bolster your mastery of the number 2, meditate on interdependence, balance, and collaboration. As for blue, remember
that its presence tends to bring stability and depth.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In the creation myths of Easter
Island’s native inhabitants, the god who made humanity was
named Makemake. He was also their fertility deity. Today the
name Makemake also belongs to a dwarf planet that was
discovered beyond the orbit of Neptune in 2005. It’s currently traveling through the sign of Virgo. I regard it as being
the heavenly body that best symbolizes your own destiny in
the coming months. In the spirit of the original Makemake,
you will have the potential to be a powerful maker. In a sense
you could even be the architect and founder of your own new
world. Here’s a suggestion: Look up the word “creator” in a
thesaurus, write the words you find there on the back of
your business card, and keep the card in a special place
until May 2013.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When novelist James Joyce
began to suspect that his adult daughter Lucia was
mentally ill, he sought advice from psychologist Carl Jung.
After a few sessions with her, Jung told her father that she
was schizophrenic. How did he know? A telltale sign was her
obsessive tendency to make puns, many of which were quite
clever. Joyce reported that he, too, enjoyed the art of punning.
“You are a deep-sea diver,” Jung replied. “She is drowning.” I’m
going to apply a comparable distinction to you, Libra. These
days you may sometimes worry that you’re in over your head
in the bottomless abyss. But I’m here to tell you that in all
the important ways, you’re like a deep-sea diver. (The JoyceJung story comes from Edward Hoagland’s *Learning to Eat
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): No false advertising this week,
Scorpio. Don’t pretend to be a purebred if you’re actually a
mutt, and don’t act like you know it all when you really don’t.
For that matter, you shouldn’t portray yourself as an unambitious amateur if you’re actually an aggressive pro, and you
should avoid giving the impression that you want very little
when in fact you’re a burning churning throb of longing. I realize it may be tempting to believe that a bit of creative deceit
would serve a holy cause, but it won’t. As much as you possibly can, make outer appearances reflect inner truths.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In Christian lore, the
serpent is the bad guy that’s the cause of all humanity’s
problems. He coaxes Adam and Eve to disobey God, which
gets them expelled from Paradise. But in Hindu and Buddhist
mythology, there are snake gods that sometimes do good
deeds and perform epic services. They’re called Nagas. In one
Hindu myth, a Naga prince carries the world on his head. And
in a Buddhist tale, the Naga king uses his seven heads to give
the Buddha shelter from a storm just after the great one has
achieved enlightenment. In regards to your immediate future,
Sagittarius, I foresee you having a relationship to the serpent
power that’s more like the Hindu and Buddhist version than
the Christian. Expect vitality, fertility, and healing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In Lewis Carroll’s book
Through the Looking Glass, the Red Queen tells Alice that
she is an expert at believing in impossible things. She brags
that there was one morning when she managed to embrace
six improbable ideas before she even ate breakfast. I encourage you to experiment with this approach, Capricorn. Have
fun entertaining all sorts of crazy notions and unruly fantasies. Please note that I am not urging you to actually put
those beliefs into action. The point is to give your imagination
a good work-out.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I’m not necessarily advising
you to become best friends with the dark side of your psyche.
I’m merely requesting that the two of you cultivate a more
open connection. The fact of the matter is that if you can keep
a dialogue going with this shadowy character, it’s far less
likely to trip you up or kick your ass at inopportune moments.
In time you might even come to think of its chaos as being
more invigorating than disorienting. You may regard it as a
worthy adversary and even an interesting teacher.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You need more magic in your
life, Pisces. You’re suffering from a lack of sublimely irrational
adventures and eccentrically miraculous epiphanies and inexplicably delightful interventions. At the same time, I think
it’s important that the magic you attract into your life is not
pure fluff. It needs some grit. It’s got to have a kick that keeps
you honest. That’s why I suggest that you consider getting
the process started by baking some unicorn poop cookies.
They’re sparkly, enchanting, rainbow-colored sweets, but
with an edge. Ingredients include sparkle gel, disco dust, star
sprinkles -- and a distinctly roguish attitude. Recipe is here:

Make Bread to Save Dough
By Lisa Dillon
I look at the price of one loaf of bread
on Molokai -- over $4 -- and cringe. I know
if I cannot afford it, many others cannot.
But for the same amount of money, you
can make four loaves of your own bread.
My great grandmother taught me to make
bread and share the knowledge. I have
passed on her tradition to my family and
friends. I’d like to share this recipe for basic
bread you can bake at home and save your
family money, as well as create your own
tradition with your family and friends.
Nothing tastes better than homemade
bread, and it’s easy and fun and doesn’t
take too much time.
Basic Bread Recipe
Makes up to six loaves, depending
your shape and pans.
Approx. 6 cups flour -- plain is fine, though
bread flour is better and cheaper
4 cups water
3 packs yeast or measured equivalent
2 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons oil
Pie pan, cookie sheet or loaf pans
Heat water to hotter than bath water
(110 to 115 degrees.) In a large bowl or pot,
add water and sugar, and stir in yeast. Let
stand and watch for yeast to “bloom” -- this
takes a few minutes and is fun for kids to
watch. Add salt, oil and just enough flour
to make like pancake batter. Let rise in a

draft-free place until doubles in size, or
about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Stir down and let rest for 10 minutes.
Then stir in flour -- about 2 to 2 1/2 cups
-- with the back of a large spoon, or enough
flour to make a stiff dough. You should
have about 1 1/2 cup flour left. Put enough
flour to the table and knead the dough for
approximately 8 to 10 minutes, adding in
flour when sticky. Kneading is easy and
good fun. Start with your dough on the
floured table right in front of you. With
the heal of your hand, push on the dough,
fold it, then turn it. Keep folding and turning, adding flour lightly until the dough is
With a sharp knife, cut the dough into
pieces for your loaves, and let dough rest
10 minutes. Grease your pans well with oil,
cooking spray, shortening butter or margarine. The dough will be soft so work lightly
and shape your loaves by rolling and tucking under the ends. Place in pans and let
rise till double approximately 45 minutes
to 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (should
be hot when you put bread in) and bake approximately 35 to 45 minutes. You can tell
it’s done when it is nicely brown ad sounds
hollow when thumped. Wait 10 minutes
for bread to cool before slicing.
I hope you enjoy, and make breadmaking a tradition you share with your
friends and family. These are times where
every penny counts more than ever, and I
encourage you to share recipes and household tips to save money.

RPh, Molokai Drugs, Inc.
Giving drugstore medications to
your keiki is no big deal, right? Well, it
shouldn’t be, as long as you use them the
right way. But just because a medication
is sold over the counter doesn’t mean it
comes with a risk-free guarantee.
If your child has ever had a bad
reaction to an over-the-counter (OTC)
medication, stop giving the medication
right away. Tell the doctor and pharmacy
staff about it. Keep a record of its name,
dosage directions, the illness it was used
for, and the side effects it caused.
To lower your child’s risk, remember to keep all medications out of reach
of children. Also, make sure you’re using the right product for your child’s
symptoms. We can advise you. Describe
symptoms to your child’s doctor or our
pharmacy staff. Also, tell us your child’s
age, weight, medical conditions, and any
medications your child is taking now or
has in the past.
Here are some general guidelines
that may also help.
Which ones?
• Don’t give your child any medications
that are intended for infants or adults.
• Only use products that treat the symptoms your child has.
• Don’t ever give OTC medicine to children to make them sleepy.
• Give acetaminophen for pain relief.
• Avoid ibuprofen if your child is younger than six months old.
• Do not give decongestants, cough
medicines, and cold medicines if your
child is younger than age four. These
medicines have caused serious side effects -- even death -- in this age group.
• Don’t give aspirin to children under

age 18. Children and teens are at risk
for a reaction to aspirin that can cause
permanent brain injury.
How much?
Getting the right dose is very important. Read labels and follow directions closely. Compare medications if
you’re giving your child more than one
and be careful not to double dose on ingredients. Did you know that an overdose of acetaminophen could lead to
permanent liver damage?
• Always use your child’s weight, not
age, to determine dosage. We have
an electronic scale at Molokai Drugs
(back of the pharmacy) that anyone
can use.
• Use the measuring device that came
with the product, instead of kitchen
• If you’re using a measuring cup, put it
on a flat surface, then pour.
• Bring us your measuring devices and
we can show you the difference between a mL and a teaspoon.
• Remember: more is not better -- be precise with measurements.
If you have a hard time keeping
track of how much medication you’ve
given your child, try keeping a simple
log or write it on a calendar. In general,
“every six hours” means that you give
the medicine to your child four times a
If you have questions on any OTC
medicine, call us at 553-5790 or visit the
pharmacy from 8:45 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.
Monday through Friday, and Saturdays
from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If you cannot find a specific OTC,
ask any of our staff if we have it in stock.

Veteran’s Corner
Column by Jesse Church
Aloha my fellow
veterans and residents
of Molokai, old Jesse
here with all the veterans news and upcoming events. Marines
sometimes yell “gangway,” a command
that means to clear the path in crowded
quarters. It’s typically used to make
room for stretchers or the commanding
officer to pass, according to the Marine
Corps Museum. Junior Marines use the
term to alert each other to make way
when an officer is approaching. In boot
camp, recruits come to attention if anyone other than a private enters the squad
bay, calling “gangway” as they back up
to the bulkhead. Like many Marine
Corps customs, the term has a nautical
tie --it is used to clear the way for an officer ashore, just as it is afloat, according
to the Marine Corps History Division.
For career troops, being shuffled
around the nation and the world is part
of the job. New assignments come with
such challenges as packing, moving and
getting settled. While each new assignment comes with new colleagues and
amenities, it is still tough on the family. It’s particularly difficult for spouses
with careers in professional fields. Not
only do they have find a new job, but
oftentimes they cannot work until they
get relicensed in their new state. However, thanks to the prodding of first
lady Michelle Obama, 23 states have of-
ficially made accommodations for military spouses who are teachers, day care
workers, nurses, speech pathologists,
physical therapists and more. Some
states have made licenses transferrable
while others provide temporary licenses
to allow spouses to work while seeking
permanent licenses. Seven more states
have introduced legislation to address
the problem. It’s time for the rest of the
country and the District of Columbia to
get onboard and expedite professional
licensing for military spouses.
I’d like to remind veterans that
John Candello, the Veteran’s Services
Counselor, will be at the Office of Hawaiian Affairs the first two Thursdays
of every month from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.,
by appointment. For an appointment on
his next visits on Sept.6 or 13, please call
I would like to thank Molokai residents for their appreciation of our active
duty troops around the globe, especially
those in combat zones. We send them a
big mahalo, and to our veterans for all
they have done and to the people of
Molokai for your appreciation of those
who keep us free.
If anyone has any questions, suggestions, or news please give old Jesse
a call at 553-3323. I hope that all my fellow veterans and residents of Molokai
have a terrific week, and remember that
old Jesse loves you all. Until next week,

Mo`omomi Needs All of Us
By Todd Yamashita, Molokai
Dispatch Publisher
I can remember the days when my
family got the key to visit Mo`omomi.
Driving down the bumpy, dusty road
watching the ocean shimmer in the distance, my anticipation would grow as
we neared the shoreline. Although I
was just a kid, I remember feeling really
lucky. It was a privilege to be there and
I was grateful.
Since then, Mo`omomi has seen
many changes – the latest being the reintroduction of a gate which has made many
upset. Gates can be controversial because
they are meant to keep people out. But if
you look deeper, past the gate, this is really an issue of conservation.
By our Molokai values, if you have
access to the land and shoreline, you also
have kuleana, or the duty to do what is
right. The relationship with the `aina and
kai is that of responsibility – we are stewards caring for something that has cared

The family of Newell K. Makahanaloa would like to thank everyone for
their prayer, love, time, assistance and
condolences. We are especially grateful
for donations and resources from caring individuals, those who prepared and
served the food and for those who provided the music. A special thanks go out
to my Church of God family. Lastly, a
warm mahalo to the EMS team, Chaplain
Lynette Schaefer, Sgt. Manaois, Officer Caparida and the firefighters.

for us for many generations.
Lately, we have not kept our kuleana
with Mo`omomi, as evidenced by the vandalism and misuse of the area. Some may
point out that it is only an irresponsible
few who have ruined things for many.
Regardless, the outcome affects everyone
and finding a solution will take the minds
and hands of more than a few.
Whether a gate is the answer or not,
let’s focus on what we can all agree upon
– we love Mo`omomi and we want her to
imum an original social security card and
a certified copy of their birth certificate (or
resident alien card, if applicable).
For renewals of current ID cards with
no change in name or citizenship, no other
documents are required. All changes in status or name due to marriage, divorce, annulment, adoption or citizenship must also be
supported by certified government-issued
documents. Altered and illegible documents are not acceptable.

you choose to call it --we can agree that it

The Molokai Dispatch applauds the
efforts of individuals who are working towards Mo`omomi’s stewardship. Gate or
not, it’s our hope that Mo`omomi and the
magic of her coast will inspire the common ground necessary in order to strike a
balance between man and nature.
