  • Always heed posted warning signs

    they may save your life.

    Hey, everyone knows that the beach is where the fun is. But Hawaiis oceans are strong and can turn fun into trag-edy. So, use care and caution for all

    water activities. And always read and obey beach safety signs. They could save your life. For more information

    visit HawaiiBeachSafety.org/?i=kauai.

    This message brought to you by Hawaiis lifeguards and the State Department of Health.

    Going to the Beach? Check it out!

    T he ocean is never more inviting than in Hawaii, but dont take it for granted. During winter months, the southern shores are generally calm as a lake while the northern shores have rougher surf and riptides. The opposite is usually true in summer. To be safe in all seasons, beachgoers should keep the following tips in mind.

    Pick a beach with a lifeguard and always swim or snorkel with a buddy. Keep in mind that lifeguards are posted at only a handful of Kauais most used beaches and they cant watch every beachgoer all the time. For information on which beaches have lifeguards and when, call 808 241-6506.

    Ask lifeguards or locals about conditions. Before jumping in, ask yourself, Is there anyone else in the water?if not, FInD OUT WHy! Study the waves for at least 20 minutes, check their frequency and size; look for currents and riptides. Ask a lifeguard about the current conditions and which areas to avoid. Remember: When in doubt, dont go out!

    Pay attention to signs posted on coastal areas. Ocean conditions can change radically in a short time. Signs are posted, when possible, to save you from harm! They may warn about large waves, undertows, slippery rocks, sharks, jellyfish, and other hazardous conditions. Read and heed!

    Stay on dry sand, sea walls or rocks and never turn your back on the ocean. Large waves can sweep you off the beach or rocks and pull you out to deep water without warning. Respect Mother Nature and use commons sense. Dont take risks like posing for a picture in the ocean with big surf breaking in the background.

    If you see someone in trouble, dont jump infind a lifeguard or call 911 and report the location and situation.

    For very helpful information, look for a copy of the Kauai Beach Safety Guide where visitor brochures are found. For more beach safety tips and daily ocean report, go to KauaiExplorer.com/kauai_beaches/.

    Kauai, known locally as the Garden Isle, is lush and green with wonders of nature as diverse as its miniature Grand Canyon, Waimea, to the crashing waves of the Npali Coast.

    - KLAUEA POInT nATIOnAL WILDLIFE REFUGE (spewing):

    One of the countrys most visited wildlife refuges, this historic lighthouse on Kauais northern most point is home to nesting seabirds in the cliffs above and whales, dolphins, seals and turtles in the blue-green waters below.

    - KALALAU TRAIL (the straying): A strenuous 11-mile hike for the experienced, well-

    equipped hiker traverses five valleys, mountain streams and waterfalls, and the ruins of several ancient Hawaiian settlements. The trail begins at Hena State Park and ends at Kalalau Beach.

    - nPALI COAST (the cliffs): Majestic sea cliffs rise 4000 feet above Kauais uninhabited

    North Shore. Sea caves, lush hidden valleys, deserted white sand beaches and some of Hawaiis most awe inspiring views. See it by air or sea, accessible by boat or a strenuous hike on the Kalalau Trail.

  • Kauais 5th wonder, The Wailua River.

    Spotlights Kauai Gold MaGazine

    - HAnALEI BAy, RIVER & VALLEy (crescent bay):

    Rich in history and beauty, the valley was once home to a large, thriving Hawaiian community. Today, it is where most of the states taro (poi) is grown. In the 1800s, the bay was an important harbor for whaling and trade vessels.

    - MT. WAIALEALE (rippling, overflowing waters):

    The mountain is the second highest point on Kauai at 5,148 feet and one of the wettest place on Earth with over 400 inches of annual rainfall. The unparalleled beauty of this important watershed area can only be seen from the air.

    - WAILUA RIVER & FALLS (many waters): Wailua Falls is a few minutes north of Lhue, take Hwy 56 to Hwy 583 follow signs. Hawaiian chiefs once jumped from the top to prove their courage. Off Hwy 580, a commercial boat trip up Wailua River takes you to the beautiful Fern Grotto, a massive lava tube filled with ferns.

    - WAIMEA CAnyOn (reddish water) & KKEE STATE PARK (to bend, wind):

    The Grand Canyon of the Pacific is a geological wonder stretching 10 miles long, 3,600 feet deep and over a mile wide. There are numerous hiking trails, picnic areas and lookouts. The parks headquarters is in Kkee.

    { }To find these wonders and more, see the overview map of Kauai on pages 3839.

    T he remains of Poliahu Heiau are maintained in a county park at the top of Kuamoo Road. This scenic spot was the site of the kings home and his personal temple. Facing the ocean, the gorge of the Wailua River is seen on the

    right and paekaa Falls on the left. The Wailua River is navigable by small boats for four miles inland, where the larger Wailua waterfall blocks the stream.

    The Hawaiian people who lived in Wailua Val-

    ley furnished chants and mele which are today treasured as among the greatest of Hawaiis unwritten literature.

    They tell of the ancient king, Moikeha, who threw his spear through the Anahola Mountains in the battle with a giant from Hanalei, and of Moikehas daughter, Kaili-lauo-ke-kea, The beautiful one with skin as soft as the koa leaf, who was lured into the mountains by a chief from Tahiti.

    The people of Wailua were the first to follow the god-like chief Laa who brought the hula from Tahiti. They were first to hear the sacred shark drum from Tahiti; it was treasured for centuries in their heiau (place of worship).

    A Wailua lad attached the first sail to his canoe and bested all opponents in canoe races.

    The surf that breaks on the shores at Wailua was sacred to the kings and their alii (chiefs) retainers. That surf brought in canoes laden with adventurous warriors of other king-doms who, like medieval knights, lined up on the beaches and challenged the warriors of Kauai to individual combat.

    Since the Wailua is fed by pure water from Waialeale, worship-pers of Kne, god of life, sought "The Living Water of Kne" and created the chant of the title which is the classic gem of Hawaiian literature.

  • Koloa Heritage TrailOn Kauais South Shore

    Lava rock pedestals topped with bronze cast signs have cropped up around the Kloa Dis-trict of Kauai, also known as the South Shore, home to Kauais popular Poip Beach Resort area. Part of an interpretive project of the non-profit Poip Beach

    Resort Association, the signs designate 12 of 13 stops on the Kloa Heri-tage Trail, titled Ka Ala Hele Waiwai Hooilina O Kloa in Hawaiian.

    The project doesnt include just signage. The Kloa Heritage Trail

    brochure, available free at many of the unique shops in Kloa Town and at information racks throughout Kauai, features a map of the trail noting the driving, bicycling and walking routes, and designated stops with information on each site. Included are stories to explain why Spouting Horn bellows noisily and why treasures are eroding out of Makawehi Dunes. Few people realize that while driving along Ala Kinoike Highway (Poip Bypass Road), the his-tory of volcanics is spread before them. The brochure details some of that volca-nic drama, including how cinder cones came to be and much more.

    Stops along the trail in Kloa Town include the Sugar Monument, Yama-moto Store and Kloa Hotel, Kloa Jodo Mission and the Kloa Missionary Church. Along the shoreline, the trail continues with signs at Spouting Horn Park, Prince Khi Birthplace and Park, Kloa Landing, Moir Gardens at Kia-huna Plantation, and Hapa Road across from Kiahuna Plantation. More stops include Poip Beach Park, Keoneloa Bay, Makawehi Dunes, and Puuwanawana volcanic cone.

    The Kloa Heritage Trail brochure is also available free of charge from the Poip Beach Resort Asso-ciation at 888-744-0888, E-mail: [email protected] or visit the website at www.PoipuBeach.org/koloaheritagetrail.T

    Kauai Museums 50th Anniversary

    Kauai Museum on Rice Street in Lhue opened its doors on Dec. 3, 1960, but its origins go back to 1924 when the Kauai Public Library Association opened the dis-tinctive cement, lava rock and blue tile roof building. As a legacy to her late husband Albert Wilcox, Emma Wilcox donated the building, a large sum of money and a collection of valuable books for a future museum addition. Others fol-lowed her lead, donating collections and money towards a museum. Juliet Rice Wichman got the project organized in 1954 and a new Kauai Museum opened next to the Lhue Library in late 1960. In 1971, the old library and Kauai Museum were combined into one complex and, 40 years later, continues its mission of telling the stories of Kauai and Niihau, supporting the islands artists and endeavors, and serving as a gathering place for cultural and historical activities for the community and its visitors.

    To celebrate its golden anniversary, Kauai Museum is planning activities and exhibits to run through most of 2011. Purchase and wear the special We Are Kauai buttons that promote the Museums special legacy and its aloha. Visit KauaiMuseum.org or call 808 245-6931 for details.

  • Kauai Museum opened its doors on Dec. 3, 1960, but its origins go back to 1924. Here is a story by Chris-tine Fay about a current display a rare feather cape, or ahuula, that once belonged to King Kamehameha IV.

    The Kings CapeLong a resident of Kauai, H.D. Sloggett had been in Lon-

    don in 1926 visiting the ancestral home. Primed to regale his kinsfolk with tales of the islands in the far Pacific, he was received by his uncle, Sir Arthur Sloggett, retired Surgeon-General of the British forces during the first World War. The uncle took him into his drawing room, to behold upon the wall a magnificent feathered robe treasured by the Hawaiian chiefs. To his utter bewilderment, he learned that his grandfather, W.H. Sloggett had served as the surgeon aboard His Britannic Majestys ship Calypso, commanded by Captain Montresor. The Calypso arrived at Hawaii on October 2, 1858. The ship remained three months and a half months and on occasion con-veyed the King, Kamehameha IV (photo), and his suite to Hawaii Island.

    Kamehameha IV, taking advantage of the presence of an English surgeon, requested a survey of his royal person. Dr. Sloggett declined to accept a fee. Kamehameha IV, not to be outdone in courtesy, delivered to his benefactor on the day the Calypso sailed, a beautiful specimen of a red and yellow feather cape. It was a symbol of royalty, worn by Hawaiian kings. Surgeon Sloggett, having no alternative, accepted the gift in the spirit with which it was bestowed, sailed back to England and hung the cloak on his wall.

    Sir Arthur Sloggett presented the Kings cloak to his nephew, who brought it back to Hawaii along with a lovely daguerreotype of Queen Emma. Today, through the generos-ity of the Sloggett family, the cape now resides in the Kauai Museum. The value of Dr. W.H. Sloggetts medical service fee was estimated by the Bishop Museum in the 1930s at $500,000 to $1,000,000.

    Kauai Museum is located at 4428 Rice St. in Lhue. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon-day through Saturday. Adult admission is $10. Ohana Days offers family activities and free admission on the first Saturday of each month (except December). For more information, see KauaiMuseum.org or call 808 245-6931.

    Historical Hanapp~Walking Tour ~Quaint and rustic historic Hanapp is 17 miles from Lhue airport and a slight jog off Kaumualii High-

    way (Route 50). Look for the Kauais Biggest Little Town sign on your right at the east gateway to Hanapp town and turn in.

    Hanapp means crushed bay, perhaps so named due to landslides in the valley or the appearance of the cliffs from the sea. Indigenous Hawaiians (kanaka maoli) inhabited the fertile val-ley of Hanapp for centuries before Captain Cook arrived in 1778 at Waimea, Kauai.

    The main staple of the ancients was kalo, or taro, from which poi is made. Hawai-ians grew other crops in Hanapp Valley as wellsweet potatoes, bananas and sugar cane. They cultivated salt in Hanapp salt ponds and traded it with sailors for goods. Salt trading was perhaps the earliest entrepreneurial leg-acy of Hanapp. The right to harvest salt, handed down through families, continues today.

    into the 20th centuryA successful generation of immigrants built clinics and

    hospitals, movie theaters and pool halls, churches and temples, hotels and homes. By the 1930s, Hanapp was a bustling town. During World War II, the Hanapp Merchants Association named it Kauais Biggest Little Town. Military personnel came for rest and recreation as the town had a USO Club, several bars, restaurants, bowl-ing alleys, and two roller-skating rinks!

    The information above was excerpted from the Hanapp Economic Alliances Historic Hanapp Walking Tour Map that is available in many Hanapp shops. Learn more about Hanapps historical buildings and take a self-guided walking tour by using the colorful and informative map. For more information, call (808) 335-5944. (Mention this story at Banana Patch Studio and receive a FREE map, while supplies last.)

    During Hanapps Fri-day Art Night, art lovers can browse the towns galleries from 6 to 9 p.m. Artists are on hand to discuss their work and re-freshments may be offered at some galleries. All building photos courtesy of Banana Patch Studio.

    E Kanikapila Kkou

    E Kanikapila Kkou (EKK; lets play music) is a celebration of Hawaiian music and culture pre-sented as a community service by the Garden island arts Council. With the theme Hula and Harmony, locals and

    visitors come together over a period of 11 Monday sessions at the Kauai Beach resort (page 58, I-3) to learn about Hawaiian music and hula, as shared by composers, musicians, kumu hula (hula teachers) and dancers.

    EKK kicks off with the Hawaiian Legends in Concert featuring Ledward Kaapana, nathan aweau and Den-nis Kamakahi at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at Kauai Community College performing arts Center (page 58, L-1). Admission, 808 332-5101.

    The weekly Monday sessions are from 6 to 9 p.m., Jan. 17 through March 28. Besides those pictured, the schedule includes: Natalie Ai Kamauu & How-ard Ai, Jan. 17; Leinaala Pavao Jardin, Jan. 31; OBrian Eselu, Feb. 7; Lady Ipo Kahaunaele & Kainani Kahaunaele, Feb. 14; Kauai composers, Feb. 21; Kekuhi Kealiikanakaoleohaililani, Feb. 28; Kehaulani Kekua, March 14; and Doric Yaris, March 28. For details of the EKK schedule, go to Gardenislandarts.org or call 808 245-2733. Admission is free, donations are accepted.

    So what can you expect at one of these sessions? EKK producer Carol Kouchi yotsuda says, Expect the unexpected. Each week is unique and often full of surprises. Its an expe-rience! Yotsuda explains that the first hour is devoted to the ukulele circle where up to 75 ukulele strummers sit in a circle to learn new licks from the art-ists. Sometimes hula is taught if the artist is a kumu hula. From 7 to 9 p.m. we have the most wonderful interactive sharing of songs, stories and hula in an interac-tive setting... it is awesome!

    Attendance doubled last year, their first at the Kauai Beach Resort, with over 600 in attendance on some nights. The hotel offers a food and beverage conces-sion for attendees along with their other dining options.

    Be

    Sun Protection: Apply a reef-friendly sunscreen and lip balm with UVA and UVB Sun

    Protection Factor (SPF) of at least 15; apply at least 30 minutes prior to going outside. Reapply every two hours, even when its cloudy.

    Wear protective clothing a broad-brimmed hat and tight woven clothing like a long-sleeved shirt and pants.

    Wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of all UV rays. Avoid the midday sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Keep babies less than 6 months old out of the sun and do not

    apply sunscreen to their skin. For children older than 6 months old, use sunscreen specially made for children.

    For sensitive skin: use PABA-Free sunscreens with either zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

    If Sunburned: Cool and soothe the skin with a cold damp cloth or ice cubes. If sunburn covers a large area, immerse the body in a cool

    Aveeno powder bath that coats and soothes the skin. Aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen reduces inflammation, itching and

    also dulls the pain. Drink lots of water or juice to replace body fluids. If suffering from severe (blistering) sunburn, see a doctor immediately.

    DO NOT: Use any product containing -caine ingredients; doing so may

    cause an allergic reaction in some people. Lubricate the skin with suntan oil while exposed to the sun. Suntan

    oil can actually magnify the harmful effects of the sun.

    Uv rays can hurt your skin in more ways than one. Just a few serious sunburns can increase your risk of getting skin cancer. And, over time, UVA exposure can make your skin wrinkled and leathery. So, before heading out into Hawaiis outdoors, do yourself a favor. Protect the skin youre in. Listed below are a few guidelines to help you and your family keep cool and healthy while on vacation or at home.

    HAWAIIAN ISLANDS HUMPBACK WHALE NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARY

    A Special Place for

    Hawaiian waters are a birthplace for humpback whales in the North Pacific Ocean. From Novem-ber to May, as many as 10,000 whales may migrate

    to Hawaii during the humpback whale season. Hawaiis warm, shallow waters provide important habitat for hump-back whales and are ideal for mating, calving and nursing.

    The Hawaiian Islands are the worlds most isolated island archipelago, born of ancient volcanoes and inhabited by animals and plants derived from ancestors that found their way here over thousands of miles of ocean. These waters surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands constitute one of the worlds most important habitats for the endangered humpback whale. Nearly two thirds of the entire North Pacific population of humpback whales migrates to Hawaii each winter. Here they are protected as a resource of nation-al significance within the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary.

    The National Marine Sanctuary Program serves as the trustee for a system of 14 marine protected areas, encom-passing more than 150,000 square miles of marine and Great Lakes waters. The system includes 13 national marine sanctuaries and Papahnaumokukea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.

    HERE ARE TWO EXCELLENT VIEWING LOCATIONS ON KAUAI :

    ~ Klauea Point National Wildlife Refuge ~~ Kapaa Overlook ~

    For a more enjoyable whale watching experience here are some helpful tips:

    Use binoculars or telephoto lenses to enhance your viewing experience

    Be aware and obey all wildlife rules and encourage others to do the same

    Always view animals in the wild from an appropriate distance. In Hawaii, it is illegal to approach humpback whales closer than 100 yards on the water and 1,000 feet by air

    Never feed or attempt to feed wild animals. Feeding ma-rine wildlife is illegal in Hawaii and can cause animals to become dependent on humans, changes their natural behavior and makes them vulnerable to vessel strikes and illnesses from contaminated or inappropriate food.

    Islands, encompassing approximately 1,200 square nautical miles of coastal and ocean waters. It includes areas around the islands of Maui, Lnai, and Molokai, parts of Oahu, Kauai and Hawaii (the Big Island). The sanctuarys goal is to promote comprehensive and coordinated manage-ment, research, education, and long term monitoring for the endangered humpback whale and its habitat.

    Sighting humpback whales can be an awe-inspir-ing experience whether from the water or the shore. Their impressive acrobatic displays are visible from

    miles away. During the humpback whale season in Hawaii, whales can be seen quite easily from most shorelines around the Hawaiian Islands. Take a trip to the beach or a scenic lookout and watch for the blows, tail slaps, fluke up dives, and breaches of Hawaiis humpback whales.

    Humpback whales frequent the near-shore areas around the Hawaiian Islands during the months of November to May.

    Klauea Lighthouse Built in 1913 as a navigational aid to guide ships and boats safely along Kauais rugged north shore,

    Klauea Lighthouse stands as a monument to Hawaiis colorful past. Time and the harsh tropic marine environment have taken their toll on the lighthouse so it is currently undergoing exten-sive restoration and will be fully restored by its 100th birthday on May 1, 2013.

    The first phase of the resto-ration involves repairing the unique cast iron roof and lan-tern assembly and stabilizing the fragile lens. The lighthouse will be surrounded in scaffolding and enclosed with a tempo-rary covering. At some point during the lead abatement procedure, Klauea Point national Wildlife Reserve

    (home of the lighthouse) may be closed and at other times the hours of opera-tion (10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, $) could be limited. For restoration updates, please call 808 828-1413 or go to their website, fWS.gov/kilaueapoint. To make a donation to the Lighthouse Restoration Project, go to KilaueaPoint.org.

    Hanalei Tradition II

    For over 11 years and 1,140+ concerts, Doug and Sandy McMaster have been keeping the tradition of Hawaiian slack key guitar music alive on Kauai. Despite six beauti-fully recorded studio CDs, fans of the McMasters twice-weekly con-certs have been clamoring for a live CD that captures the spirit of these events. The recently released Hanalei Tradition II LIVE at Hale Halawai Ohana o Hanalei

    is just that, a selection of traditional and original songs that capture the beauty and magic of Hawaiian slack key guitar played by Doug backed by Sandy on slack key ukulele. While the song list had not been finalized at this writing, you can count on this all-instrumental collection to lift your spirits and nurture your soul. For details, see McMasterSlackKey.com or call 808 826-1469.

    At Home in the Islands

    The Brothers Cazimero call themselves the dinosaurs of Hawaiian music for lasting in the music business over 35 years. The recently released DVD, The Brothers Cazimero: At Home in the Islands (Mountain Apple Company, MADVD 5053, MountainAppleCompany.com) docu-ments the story of Robert and Roland Cazimero, musicians who are brothers, a musical act and two very different individuals. Their story, in their voices, takes us from childhood days in Kalihi (on Oahu) and performing with their

    parents, to the Hawaiian renaissance and years with the group the Sunday Mnoa, then to the birth and evolution of

    The Brothers Cazimero. The DVD includes scenes from their elaborate May Day Concerts, shows at The

    Royal Hawaiians Monarch Room and famous Carnegie Hall.

    Wahine CD

    The voices of wahine (women) are featured on Wahine (Ululoa Productions, UL 117, Ululoa.com, MountainAppleCompany.com) a delightful 17-track com-pilation of 10 artists or groups based on Maui and Hawaii islands. They are Ahumanu, Ayin Adams (spoken words), Ginni Clemmons, Hula Honeys, Piilani Kaawaloa, Kahala Mossman-Smith, Pamela Polland, Laurie Roher, Leiohu Ryder, and Emma Veary. From the opening chant to Aloha Oe, written by Queen Liliuokalani, many songs are in Hawaiian or in the hapa-haole style. The beautifully illustrated liner notes have the Hawaiian words and English translation for three of the songs plus notes about the artists and stories of the song(s) they perform.
