Creating Subsistence Fish Ponds:  Ikaika Hussey

Ikaika Hussey

The Ha’ena community may be writing a new chapter in Hawaii’s future by looking to its past. Last Friday, the Board of Land and Natural Resources approved a request to hold public hearings on an idea rooted in history: fish ponds for food production. The creation of a subsistence fishing area on Kauai has been floated for almost a decade.  Hawaii Independent editor, Ikaika Hussey joined the show with a look at the story’s progress.

Love Life Festival Kauai: Lila Metzger

Lila Metzger

Youth can be the best time of life…. it can be a time when our creativity grows within us.  Or in some cases, it can be a time when life’s pressures get to be too much. That’s a story we hear repeated all too often.   Kauai’s Love Life Creative Festival, in its sixth year now, is a celebration of the best of young people’s creative efforts with the stated purpose of creating a drug- and suicide-free culture on the Garden Isle.   Lila Metzger is one of its guiding spirits, and she joined us this morning by phone. The Festival is this Saturday from 4:30 pm to 9:30 at the Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center.

The Value of Hawaii, Volume 2: Jon Osorio

Jon Osorio

It seems you can’t have a conversation about sustainability without looking back to the past while looking toward the future. That idea fills many of the essays collected in the Value of Hawaii volume 2. There are new editors and a new generation of writers in this edition. Jon Osorio was one of the original editors and joined the show via phone with a lesson in transition.

Intro Music: Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield

MAPA Summer Dance Classes: Kathleen Schulz

Kathleen Schulz

A summer spent studying dance can change your life.  Even if you don’t pursue a performing career, dance training can give you confidence, stage presence, and an understanding of the importance of working with other people.   Kathleen Schulz has seen firsthand what dance training can do for her young charges at the Maui Academy of Performing Arts.   Kids are now signing up for her summer dance classes at MAPA, and she joined the show from her studio.
