Waikiki-Diamond Head Shoreline Fisheries Management Area to Close for One Year

The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will close the Waikiki-Diamond Head Shoreline Fisheries Management Area (FMA) to fishing for one year, from Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013, through Dec. 31, 2013, to allow fish population to replenish itself.

Waikiki-Diamond Head Shoreline Fisheries Management Area

“Periodically closing areas to fishing was a practice used by early Hawaiians; it helped fish populations replenish themselves,” said William J. Aila, Jr., DLNR chairperson. “We use a variation of that at Waikiki-Diamond Head for the same purpose. Closed years give fish a break from fishing pressure, and allow their populations to increase. Fishing experiences are then improved during open years.”

The fisheries management area encompasses the nearshore waters between the ‘Ewa wall of the Waikiki War Memorial Natatorium and the Diamond Head Lighthouse, and from the high-water mark on shore to a minimum seaward distance of 500 yards (or to the edge of the fringing reef if one occurs beyond 500 yards).

The FMA is regulated by the department’s administrative rule, Chapter 13-48. It is prohibited to fish for, take or injure any marine life (including eggs) or to possess in the water any fishing gear during the “closed to fishing” period.

Fishing is also not allowed at any time in the adjoining Waikiki Marine Life Conservation District (MLCD) between the ‘Ewa edge of the Natatorium and the ‘Ewa edge of the Kapahulu groin (seawall).

Anyone who violates the provisions of this rule may be guilty of a petty misdemeanor, and /or subject to an administrative fine.

Copies of the administrative rule, Chapter 13-48, are available at the Division of Aquatic Resources office, 1151 Punchbowl St., Rm. 330; in the Hawai‘i Fishing Regulations booklet (available at most sporting goods stores); or on the DLNR website: www.hawaii.gov/dlnr/dar.

 

Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club Starts Construction

Hilton Grand Vacations (HGV) announced the start of construction of its newest resort, Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club, an upscale urban timeshare resort in world-famous Waikiki.  Coinciding with the start of the extensive renovation project was the official launch of sales for the resort, which is the company’s seventh timeshare resort in Hawaii.  The property is located at the site of the former OHANA® Islander Waikiki Hotel and was acquired from Outrigger Enterprises Group by HGV in May 2011. The resort is anticipated to open in late 2013.

Artists Rendition

Leading architectural firm Group 70 International of Honolulu has been commissioned to design the fourteen-story resort, which balances Hawaiian aesthetic with modern elements. Los Angeles-based studio Indidesign will oversee the interior design and Hensel Phelps has been selected as Construction Manager.

Hokulani Waikiki will be comprised of 143 one-bedroom suites with elegant and personalized touches, which include a living room, boutique kitchen and spacious bathrooms. Both interior and exterior designs will utilize natural elements and tones to showcase Hawaii’s unique cultural heritage and lush environment. Mahina, the spacious open air lobby, will provide a relaxing arrival experience as well as a personalized area to enjoy throughout the stay. Guests and owners will also have access to Nalani, an exclusive rooftop deck with a pool lounge, bar, private cabanas and dynamic views of Waikiki.

According to Bryan Klum, executive vice president of Hilton Grand Vacations-Asia/Pacific, Hokulani Waikiki was created with the sophisticated and active traveler in mind.

“We will deliver a guest experience that is contemporary, vibrant and fun,” Klum said. “We have incorporated a number of features and design elements that will distinctively set Hokulani Waikiki apart from other timeshare resorts in Hawaii. It will be the perfect choice for the traveler who wants to be in the center of Waikiki and is looking for an exciting, action-packed vacation. Hokulani Waikiki will be a great complement to our timeshare properties at the nearby Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.”

All conceptual images. Features and amenities subject to change.

The suites at Hokulani Waikiki have been superbly designed with surprising features and a decor approach that interprets Hawaiian motifs in a modern way, Klum said. “We think it will appeal equally to our domestic and international customers, especially those with urban sensibilities and appreciation for quality.”

Hokulani Waikiki is located at 2181 Kalakaua Avenue, adjacent to Lewers Street, which will provide guests with immediate access to premier shopping, dining and entertainment selections in the exciting Waikiki Beach Walk entertainment district.

Klum added that Hokulani Waikiki is further proof of the growing popularity of HGV’s timeshare offerings in Hawaii. It is also an opportunity to tap into the demand and awareness created by the Waikiki Beach Walk. “We are incredibly fortunate to have a wonderful working relationship with Outrigger Enterprises Group, and together we are committed to providing owners and guests with an opportunity to discover the wonders that can be found in Waikiki and throughout the island of Oahu,” he said.

“It’s a real pleasure to welcome Hilton Grand Vacations into our expanding ohana at Waikiki Beach Walk,” said Barbara Campbell, vice president of retail development and leasing for Outrigger Enterprises Group. “With a diverse array of dining and shopping opportunities, guests staying at Hokulani Waikiki will be able to experience firsthand our warm island hospitality and a genuine spirit of aloha.”

A blessing ceremony will be held later this month to signal the start of the renovations. Attendees will include company VIPs and other dignitaries.

Upon its completion, Hokulani Waikiki by Hilton Grand Vacations Club will join award-winning properties at Oahu’s Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort and Waikoloa Beach Resort on Hawaii’s Big Island.

Rapper J-Diggs Arrested and Charged with Assault and Attempted Murder After Bar Fight in Waikiki

J-Diggs has broken his silence about his weekend arrest in Oahu, Hawaii, revealing he and his associates were just trying to defend themselves from burly locals.

The Thizz Entertainment president, real name Jamal Diggs, and three members of his entourage were arrested and charged with assault and attempted murder after allegedly attacking security men outside the Big Kahuna bar in Waikiki.

In a statement obtained by WENN, he writes, “Me and 3 of my entourage got kicked out of BIG KAHUNA bar and grill. The security punched one of my dudes in the Jaw as the police were pulling up, so we went across the street and posted on the strip.

“Four large island security guards came across the street demanding us to get off the strip and that’s when it turned into an all-out brawl on Waikiki beach… I was charged with slapping and beating a 6 foot 4, 320 pound security (guard) and his friend with a board… Another dude’s throat is cut… And three out of the four went to the hospital with major head back and neck wound…

Full Article here:  Rap Mogul Speaks Out After Weekend Assault In Hawaii

MEDIA RELEASE:

Most notably known as the youngest American Gangsta on BET’s notorious series, Thizz Entertainment President J-Diggs and three members of his entourage were arrested over the weekend and charged with assault and attempted murder on security personnel, after they were thrown out of a Big Kahuna bar & grill on the island of Waikiki. Although witness testimony confirms the rapper and crew were acting in self-defense, they were the only ones arrested. The rapper, who was recently released after posting his $150,000 bail, claims they are being railroaded because they are not from the islands and were only protecting themselves from the over sized, overzealous security guards.

In the following statement he explains the incident; “Me and 3 of my entourage got kicked out of BIG KAHUNA bar and grill. The security punched of my dudes in the Jaw as the police were pulling up, so we went across the street and posted on the strip. Four large island security guards came across the street demanding us to get off the strip and that’s when it turned into an all-out brawl on Waikiki beach… I was charged with slapping and beating a 6 foot 4 320 pound security and his friend with a board… Another dude throat is cut… And three out of the four wet to the hospital with major head back and neck wounds. The dudes wrote statements against us and we were all charged”.

Still waiting to bail out a member of his entourage who has a hold on his bail, Diggs has a court date today to see if/when he will be allowed to leave the island. The rapper was in Hawaii preparing for the release of his album titled “Izm 101 with Philthy Rich” as well as filming a pilot for his reality TV show detailing behind the lives of Diggs and the Dirty girls, and shooting footage for his DVD DIGGS DOIT MOVING

I had to check out his tweets from the night that things broke out until now and here is his twitter feed:

Sex Trafficking in Hawaii – On the Streets and Behind the Headlines

The other day I posted a video that Malia Zimmerman of the Hawaii Reporter posted entitled “Jana’s Story: Life as an Underage Sex Trafficking Victim in Honolulu”.

KHON2 News just reported on Emergency responders train to help sex trafficking victims.

…”Well I know they learned of the magnitude of the problem. And I think that is the most valuable thing that’s heart wrenching to hear how widespread this problem is in Hawaii,” said Yamamoto.

“Prostitution is inherently detrimental to women and children. Okay there is no legislating it. There is no regulating it, you can’t fix it, it’s just the way it is,” said Xian.

But you can fight it, with lots of soldiers on the street knowing what to look for.

Tonight I will post Matt Levi’s special on “Sex Trafficking in Hawaii” that was just posted a few months ago:

Matt Levi looks into the world of sex trafficking in Hawaii. We meet a former victim and speak with experts in the field.

Transit of Venus – Hawaii Viewing Information

On the afternoon and evening of June 5, people in Hawai‘i will have the rare opportunity to view the planet Venus cross the disk of the sun. This is the last time this will happen in our lifetimes: The next transit of Venus will occur in 2117.

Hawai‘i and Alaska are the only places in the United States where this event can be viewed in its entirety. In the contiguous 48 states, the sun will set before the transit is over. In Honolulu, the transit will begin at 12:10 p.m. and end at 6:45 p.m. Because Hawai‘i is one of the best places to view this happening, it is attracting many visitors to our state.

FREE solar viewers are available at the IfA Mānoa reception desk through June 4 weekdays from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. There is a limit of two per person (at least 16 years old). These solar viewers are made available by our generous donors. Please support us at https://www.uhfoundation.org/IfA_TransitofVenus.

Never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection. Sunglasses do not provide enough protection. You can find more safety information here.

Printable information sheet (3.9 MB) – Available in English and Japanese.

Events

IfA will distribute free solar viewers that will allow individuals to look at the sun safely at each IfA sponsored event. While supplies last.

IfA Events, noon to sunset

  • Waikīkī Beach
  • Pacific Aviation Museum
  • Ko Olina

Waikīkī Beach

The Waikiki Beach viewing site will be at the Sunset on the Beach location toward the Diamond Head end of Kalakaua Avenue, where there will be screens showing webcasts of the transit as viewed from Mauna Kea and Haleakala. There will also be other science and technology activities for children and adults.

Pacific Aviation Museum

The Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor is located on Ford Island. While the museum usually charges an admission fee, viewing the transit of Venus and related activities will be free, and the museum will stay open until dusk. The museum will offer a special discounted admission price of $8 per person. In addition to viewing the transit, those who come to this venue will be able to see a show in the IfA’s StarLab planetarium and a robotics display, and there will be other demonstrations and activities for children and adults.

Since the museum is located on an active military base, you must have military or Department of Defense identification, or you must make a reservation by providing the vehicle year, make, model, and license plate number of your car, and a government-issued ID number for each adult in the vehicle in an email to SpecialEvents@pacificaviationmuseum.org or by calling the museum at (808) 441-1007.

Go to their website (imiloahawaii.org) for the full schedule and the latest updates.

Historical Significance

Custom solar viewers. Artwork: Karen Teramura/IfA. Higher-resolution (106.7 KB)

In Hawai‘i, this event has a special historical significance, for it echoes a transit of Venus that occurred during the reign of King David Kalākaua. On December 8, 1874, a British expedition made the first scientific astronomical observations in Hawai‘i by observing the transit from a site near the corner of Punchbowl and Queen Streets in Honolulu, as well as from locations in Waimea on Kaua‘i and Kailua-Kona on Hawai‘i. They observed the transit to gather data that would be used to determine the precise distance between Earth and the sun, and thereby, to measure the size of the solar system. More information about the 1874 transit expedition in Hawai‘i can be found here.

There is also a live webcast from the summit of Mauna Kea: http://keckobservatory.org/news/venus_transit_live_keck_observatory

The website transitofvenus.org is a good place for general information about this event.

NASA has pictures of the previous transit of Venus (2004). NASA also has a page for the 2012 transit.

The Hubble Space Telescope will use the Moon as a mirror to see the Venus transit because Hubble cannot look directly at the Sun. Hubble will be studying Venus’ atmosphere. More

See NASA Edge YouTube video about a webcast of the transit. The transit will be webcast live at http://sunearthday.nasa.gov/.

John Philip Sousa composed the “Transit of Venus March” in 1883. Lost for many years, it was rediscovered in 2003. Click here for the full story and to listen to it.

A workshop entitled “Transiting Planets in the House of the Sun: A Workshop on M Dwarf Stars and Their Planets” will be held at IfA Maui on June 3-6. Intended for advanced graduate students and junior postdocs studying extrasolar planets, it was intentionally scheduled to coincide with the the transit of Venus.

The University of Hawai‘i at Hilo will be offering an undergraduate observational astronomy course to coincide with the transit of Venus. More information is available on the web or by contacting hokukea@hawaii.edu.

While some websites may say that the transit will occur on June 6, be assured that in Hawai‘i it will occur on June 5. It depends on which side of the international dateline you are on.

Eloise Mumford Awarded Golden Honu at the 2012 Big Island Film Festival

On Saturday at the 2012 Big Island Film Festival there were more movies and films that included “Nobody’s Child” and “Steve Phoenix – The Untold Story” in the morning followed by “Buzkashi Boys” and “Donkeys’.  Then in the afternoon the films “Election Day”, “Found” and “Searching for Sonny” were shown.

The big event of the day was the “Reception and Salute” to actress Eloise Mumford.  The reception included a carving station that had roasted turkey and then this steamed platter of Chinese food.

After the reception and salute, there was a celebrity awards ceremony where Big Island Film Festival Director Leo Sears presented Mumford with a 2012 Golden Honu Award for Acting.

Maui film producer Brian Kohne (Get a Job) interviewed Mumford about what it was like to work in the industry and she mentioned how fortunate she feels to be so far along at such a young age.

While only a few weeks ago Mumford learned that the current show she stars in “The River” has been cancelled, she remained upbeat and talked about a current project she is working on entitled “Waikiki”.

Eloise with the producers of “Waikiki”

She talked about the auditioning process and how many auditions folks really need to go out and do before they may even get picked up. Of course Kohne tried to convince her to come play a part in one of his upcoming movies.

After the awards ceremony, I had the opportunity to go on a walk with Eloise and ask her a few more questions about herself.

Eloise Mumford and Singer/Songwriter/Producer RJ Kaneao

When she was talking to Kohne earlier in the evening she mentioned that she graduated from High School in Olympia, Washington and that struck a nerve with me as I attended a High School there as well my freshmen year.

Well it turns out that she went to Capital High School and I went to a high school on the opposite site of Olympia called Tumwater for a brief time during my younger days.  Of course I really didn’t want to ask her how old or young she was… but with this connection I was having with her… I just had to ask her what year she graduated, but with respect for how young she really is… I won’t say what year she graduated in!

Of course all the guys want to know if she is single.  Well she does have a boyfriend that arrived just in time for her to receive an award.

Sorry guys… taken!

Later on in the evening the “family films” held at The Shops of Mauna Lani, were “Dissolving Destinies”, “A Finger”, “Two Dots”, “Giant Monsters” and ” Miss Minoes”.    The festival films held at the Plantation Estate of the Fairmont Orchid were ” Technicality”, “Nani”, “Silver Case”, “Scenen” and “Irvine Welsh’s Ecstasy”.

I had to leave early the next day to go to Oahu but according to the Big Island Film Festival Facebook site… The previous attendance record of 1954 patrons was smashed this year with 2202 patrons and visiting filmmakers visiting this year.

Wordless Wednesday: Chief… The Movie

Named “one of the 10 must-see short films of Sundance” by IndieWIRE, CHIEF tells the story of Semu Fatutoa, a taxi driver in Honolulu, Hawaii. Once he was a village Chief in Samoa, but tragedy compelled him to cover his tattoos and flee his home. Now he drives in circles, slowly forgetting his old life. But his old life is looking for him. CHIEF won “Best Dramatic Short” at the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival, a BAFTA award, and several other festival accolades.

To own CHIEF on DVD, including more than 90 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, and other bonus materials, visit www.CHIEF-MOVIE.com.

The Halloween Night Death of Patrick Cunnie Has Left Me Stunned

Well ever since I witnessed the death of Patrick Cunnie in Waikiki, I haven’t really felt like blogging too much about any of my own thoughts or feelings and have just been posting press releases.

I guess what they say about folks who have writers block… also pertains to those who have blogs.

Its not that I can’t think of something to write about… its just more about realizing the impact that my blog actually has on folks.

I haven’t posted nearly 20 – 30 comments that have been left on my blog regarding the suicide I witnessed in Waikiki on Halloween… not because I’m choosing to censor comments at all… it’s just that I was hoping this would blow over and folks from Sonoma, California would get over the fact that I saw something and wrote about it on my blog.

Here is the Obituary that was posted in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Patrick Cunnie

Photo Patrick Hugh Cunnie June 2, 1990 – November 1, 2010 On November 1, Patrick passed suddenly in Honolulu, HI. Patrick was a proud third generation San Franciscan, on both sides. He leaves behind his loving parents, Chris and Christine Cunnie. Pat was the well-tended younger brother of Jerome Christian and Michael Dugan. Raised in Sonoma, he was a graduate of Saint Francis Solano School, Class of 2004. Pat continued on to his father’s alma mater, Archbishop Riordan High School. He was a proud graduate of the Class of 2008, where his classmates voted him the funniest senior. Patrick continued on to Chaminade University in Honolulu, where he was diligently working towards his degree in English literature. His goal was to return to Riordan and teach English. Patrick was loved by his extensive family, including his 38 first cousins, several aunts and uncles, and his grandparents Jerome and Bernice Petersen. Pat was predeceased by his grandparents, James and Katherine Cunnie, and by his uncle, and namesake, Patrick Jerome Petersen. Though challenged by our loss, it is with faith and gratitude for Patrick’s life, and in anticipation of his spirit’s continuing influence over us, that we lay him to rest. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Saturday, November 13, at 1:00 P.M., at St. Leo’s Catholic Church, 601 W. Agua Caliente Road, Sonoma CA. The family requests donations to Archbishop Riordan High School in Patrick’s name. 175 Phelan Ave., San Francisco, CA 94112.

A Week Ago Today… I Witnessed Death and It Has Been Ruled a “Possible” Suicide

A week ago today, I witnessed death in Waikiki from a man possibly committing suicide from a high rise in Waikiki (note this is what the police have classified it now and not my speculation).

I know this still leaves a lot of unanswered questions!

I’ve been very traumatized by this and I’m slowly getting over it… Including taking melatonin a few nights to help me sleep.

I haven’t felt like blogging much nor doing much things online as I keep having flashbacks of that fateful night.

I know it’s tough on the family of the guy from Sonoma, California and they are searching for answers just as I am.

From what I have learned so far, is that the guys death has been classified as a suicide.

Here are the exact words from my source:

“… foul play has already been ruled out of that investigation. An autopsy has already been done, and he died of multiple injuries from the fall.

Typically we don’t cover possible suicides, out of respect for the victim and their family. We only make exceptions when it is done in a very public area, if it disrupts the public (like stopping up freeway traffic), and to assist people who were in that immediate area with information so they know it was nothing nefarious.

But unless the investigation flips and there is foul play suspected, we won’t be following up with a story. It’s unlikely that we would even run his name…”

And my source went on with some words to help me sleep that had nothing to do with this.

“Eggs ‘N Things” Moves to New Location: Re-Grand Opening Soon

Waikiki’s infamous restaurant Eggs ‘N Things restaurant is moving to a new location.

This is the old location at the bottom of McCully Street in Waikiki:

If you haven’t ever eaten there, I highly recommend the salsa that they provide for the eggs!

I used to live within walking distance and I used to eat there all the time.  The place would literally have a line-up of tourists waiting to get in the place all the time.

I’m assuming this new location will provide more seating and less wait time.

Eggs 'N Things New Location

Eggs 'N Things New Location

The grand re-opening of Eggs ‘N Things is scheduled for February 2009, just in time to celebrate our 35th anniversary! Our new location is 343 Saratoga Road, Honolulu, Hawaii 96815. We are looking forward to opening our restaurant doors to provide you with a comfortable and welcoming eatery and the traditionally delicious food you’ve come to love…

Waikiki… Again?

When I lived on Oahu, I used to always cruise Waikiki just to get a good walk in.  I lived across the Ala Wai canal and I would typically cross the Ala Wai and then cruise Kalakaua all the way to the zoo and then walk back up Kuhio Blvd.  I wish I would have had a camera with me back then.  There is so much crazy stuff that happens pretty much nightly that never makes the news.

Now that there are more and more people with cell phone cameras, digital cameras, and the ability to upload their clips to the internet, more and more people are uploading clips caught on their tourist trips to Hawaii.

Here is a clip I just noticed this morning that happened last night.  I thought the cop was about to run over the guy!

This guy just stood on the middle of the road yelling nonsense while stopping traffic for a good 20min+ The cops finally came and he did nothing! What’s all the yelling for? I seriously thought he was gonna try and book it”
