Domestic Violence and Law Enforcement: Senator Laura Thielen

Laura Thielen

It may be one domestic violence incident, but members of the Women’s Legislative Caucus say the issue involving Sgt. Darren Cachola is another example of deeper troubles lurking within the Honolulu Police Department. The caucus met yesterday with HPD Police Chief to call for more transparency in reporting and the accountability of officers. Sen Laura Thielen is a member of the caucus and joined us by phone with her take on what’s next.

Intro Music:   The High Road by Broken Bells

Outro Music: The Only Moment We Were Alone by Explosions in the Sky

Dylanesque: Sonny Silva

Sonny Silva

It often seems as if Bob Dylan’s songs are an amalgam of every possible American music style.   For fifty years now, he has adapted his musical influences to his own vision, creating a body of work that is going to be adapted, in its turn, for generations to come.   As guitarist-impresario Sonny Silva is finding out with his upcoming tribute show, Dylanesque, the Master’s songs can be re-imagined any number of ways. Sonny Silva and Duane Padilla are part of the musical lineup for Dylanesque, which will be performed September 29th and 30th at Mano’a Valley Theatre.

Intro Music:  Lay Lady Lay by David T. Walker

Outro Music: Like A Rolling Stone by The O'Neill Brothers Group

James Koshiba is the co-founder of Kanu Hawaii. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to building a grassroots movement for environmental and economic sustainability rooted in personal commitments to change. Its latest venture, The Ono Pono Seafood Pilot Program, hopes to help address the fact that 90% of worldwide fisheries have collapsed or are depleted due to pollution and/or overfishing. The project launches October 3rd and James Koshiba joined us in studio to talk about it.
