Always heed posted warning signs —

they may save your life.

Hey, everyone knows that the beach is where the fun is. But Hawai’i’s 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 Hawai‘i’s lifeguards — and the State Department of Health.

Going to the Beach? Check it out!

T he ocean is never more inviting than in Hawai‘i, but don’t 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 Kaua‘i’s most used beaches and they can’t 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, don’t 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. Don’t take risks like posing for a picture in the ocean with big surf breaking in the background.

If you see someone in trouble, don’t jump in—find a lifeguard or call 911 and report the location and situation.

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

Kaua‘i, 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 Näpali Coast.

- KÏLAUEA POInT nATIOnAL WILDLIFE REFUGE (spewing):

One of the country’s most visited wildlife refuges, this historic lighthouse on Kaua‘i’s 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 Hä‘ena State Park and ends at Kalalau Beach.

- nÄPALI COAST (the cliffs): Majestic sea cliffs rise 4000 feet above Kaua‘i’s uninhabited

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

Kaua‘i’s 5th wonder, “The Wailua River.”

Spotlight’s Kaua‘i 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 state’s taro (poi) is grown. In the 1800s, the bay was an important harbor for whaling and trade vessels.

- MT. WAI‘ALE‘ALE (rippling, overflowing waters):

The mountain is the second highest point on Kaua‘i 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 Lïhu‘e, 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) & KÖKE‘E 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 park’s headquarters is in Köke‘e.

{ }To find these wonders and more, see the overview map of Kaua‘i on pages 38–39.

T he remains of Poli‘ahu Heiau are maintained in a county park at the top of Kuamo‘o Road. This scenic

spot was the site of the king’s home and his personal temple. Facing the ocean, the gorge of the Wailua River is seen on the

right and ‘Öpaeka‘a 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 Hawai‘i’s 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 Moikeha’s 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 ali‘i (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 Kaua‘i to individual combat.

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

Koloa Heritage TrailOn Kaua‘i’s South Shore

Lava rock pedestals topped with bronze cast signs have cropped up around the Köloa Dis-trict of Kaua‘i, also known as the South Shore,

home to Kaua‘i’s popular Po‘ipü Beach Resort area. Part of an interpretive project of the non-profit Po‘ipü Beach

Resort Association, the signs designate 12 of 13 stops on the Köloa Heri-tage Trail, titled “Ka Ala Hele Waiwai Ho‘oilina O Köloa” in Hawaiian.

The project doesn’t include just signage. The Köloa Heritage Trail

brochure, available free at many of the unique shops in Köloa Town and at information racks throughout Kaua‘i, 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 (Po‘ipü 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 Köloa Town include the Sugar Monument, Yama-moto Store and Köloa Hotel, Köloa Jodo Mission and the Köloa Missionary Church. Along the shoreline, the trail continues with signs at Spouting Horn Park, Prince Kühiö Birthplace and Park, Köloa Landing, Moir Gardens at Kia-huna Plantation, and Hapa Road across from Kiahuna Plantation. More stops include Po‘ipü Beach Park, Keoneloa Bay, Makawehi Dunes, and Pu‘uwanawana volcanic cone.

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

Kaua‘i Museum’s 50th Anniversary

Kaua‘i Museum on Rice Street in Lïhu‘e opened its doors on Dec. 3, 1960, but its origins go back to 1924

when the Kaua‘i 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 Kaua‘i Museum opened next to the Lïhu‘e Library in late 1960. In 1971, the old library and Kaua‘i Museum were combined into one complex and, 40 years later, continues its mission of telling the stories of Kaua‘i and Ni‘ihau, supporting the island’s 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, Kaua‘i Museum is planning activities and exhibits to run through most of 2011. Purchase and wear the special “We Are Kaua‘i” buttons that promote the Museum’s special legacy and its aloha. Visit KauaiMuseum.org or call 808 245-6931 for details.

Kaua‘i Museum opened its doors on Dec. 3, 1960, but its origins go back to 1924. Here is a story by Chris-

tine Fayé about a current display — a rare feather cape, or ‘ahu‘ula, that once belonged to King Kamehameha IV.

The King’s CapeLong a resident of Kaua‘i, 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 Majesty’s ship Calypso, commanded by Captain Montresor. The Calypso arrived at Hawai‘i 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 Hawai‘i 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 King’s cloak to his nephew, who brought it back to Hawai‘i along with a lovely daguerreotype of Queen Emma. Today, through the generos-ity of the Sloggett family, the cape now resides in the Kaua‘i Museum. The value of Dr. W.H. Sloggett’s medical service fee was estimated by the Bishop Museum in the 1930s at $500,000 to $1,000,000.

Kaua‘i Museum is located at 4428 Rice St. in Lïhu‘e. 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 Hanapëpë~Walking Tour ~Quaint and rustic historic Hanapëpë is 17 miles from

Lïhu’e airport and a slight jog off Kaumuali‘i High-way (Route 50). Look for the “Kaua‘i’s Biggest Little

Town” sign on your right at the east gateway to Hanapëpë town and turn in.

Hanapëpë 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 Hanapëpë for centuries before Captain Cook arrived in 1778 at Waimea, Kaua‘i.

The main staple of the ancients was kalo, or taro, from which poi is made. Hawai-ians grew other crops in Hanapëpë Valley as well—sweet potatoes, bananas and sugar cane. They cultivated salt in Hanapëpë salt ponds and traded it with sailors for goods. Salt trading was perhaps the earliest entrepreneurial leg-acy of Hanapëpë. 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, Hanapëpë was a bustling town. During World War II, the Hanapëpë Merchants Association named it “Kaua‘i’s 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 Hanapëpë Economic Alliance’s “Historic Hanapëpë Walking Tour Map” that is available in many Hanapëpë shops. Learn more about Hanapëpë’s 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 Hanapëpë’s Fri-day Art Night, art lovers can browse the town’s 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 Käkou

E Kanikapila Käkou (EKK; let’s 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 Kaua‘i 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 Kaua‘i 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; Leina‘ala Pavao Jardin, Jan. 31; O’Brian Eselu, Feb. 7; Lady Ipo Kahaunaele & Kainani Kahaunaele, Feb. 14; Kaua‘i 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. It’s 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 Kaua‘i 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 it’s 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 Hawai‘i’s outdoors, do yourself a favor. Protect the skin you’re 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 Hawai‘i during the humpback whale season. Hawai‘i’s warm, shallow waters provide important habitat for hump-back whales and are ideal for mating, calving and nursing.

The Hawaiian Islands are the world’s 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 world’s most important habitats for the endangered humpback whale. Nearly two thirds of the entire North Pacific population of humpback whales migrates to Hawai‘i 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 Papahänaumokuäkea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.

The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary stretches from Maui to several nearby Hawaiian

HERE ARE TWO EXCELLENT VIEWING LOCATIONS ON KAUA‘I :

~ Kïlauea Point National Wildlife Refuge ~~ Kapa‘a 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 Hawai‘i, 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 Hawai‘i 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, Läna‘i, and Moloka‘i, parts of O‘ahu, Kaua‘i and Hawai‘i (the Big Island). The sanctuary’s 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 Hawai‘i, 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 Hawai‘i’s humpback whales.

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

Historic Waimea Town

A long-time center of Hawaiian government and com-merce, Waimea (page 62, I-2) is an ancient settlement

with beginnings shrouded in mythology. Captain James Cook landed here in 1778, marking the anchorage on his maps. During the years of Kamehameha’s wars, traders in fur, san-dalwood and guns made Waimea a provision stop.

Many of Kauai’s historical highlights took place here — the Russian fortifications, the first Protestant missionar-ies, the Rebellion of 1824 and more. Waimea town has many historic buildings and a rich history worth exploring. On Mondays, the West Kauai Technology & Visitor Center, 9565 Kaumuali‘i Highway at Waimea Canyon Drive, offers a Historic Waimea Walking Tour, a two-hour journey through time in one of the most historic towns in Hawai‘i.

How You CAN HELp prESErvE

HAwAI‘I’S rEEfS( Leave the beach cleaner than you found it. ( Keep the ocean clean — any kind of litter can

harm the reef and the fish.( Practice floating! Stay off the reef — one touch

can harm it; more can kill it. ( Enjoy marine life — but no touching,

chasing or feeding. ( Use an ash can for your cigarettes. ( Support reef-friendly businesses —

ask how they protect the reef.( Make sure your fishing, snorkeling, diving, hotel,

and other operators care about the reef. ( Be an informed consumer — ask how fish and

coral were collected.( Help others understand how to protect the reef.

Kïlauea Lighthouse Built in 1913 as a navigational aid to guide ships

and boats safely along Kaua‘i’s rugged north shore, Kïlauea Lighthouse stands as a monument to Hawai‘i’s 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 it’s 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, Kïlauea 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 Kaua‘i. Despite six beauti-fully recorded studio CDs, fans of the McMaster’s 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 O‘ahu) and performing with their

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

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

Royal Hawaiian’s 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 Hawai‘i islands. They are Ahumanu, Ayin Adams (spoken words), Ginni Clemmons, Hula Honeys, Pi‘ilani Ka‘awaloa, Kahala Mossman-Smith, Pamela Polland, Laurie Roher, Lei‘ohu Ryder, and Emma Veary. From the opening chant to Aloha ‘Oe, written by Queen Lili‘uokalani, 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.

Easy Hawaiian & LocaL REcipEs

W e hope you had a chance to try at least one of the many lü‘au here on Kaua‘i and some local island fare. Here’s one dish that’s been an island

favorite. Have it for lunch or dinner with some tossed salad for an ‘ono (delicious) meal. Or, simply as püpü (appetizer), it is sure to be a crowd pleaser time and time again. Now it’s time to kau kau (Pidgin English for “eat”)!

ChiCken katsuyield: 10 servings

Who needs KFC when you’ve got Chicken Katsu? Katsu is a Japanese cutlet, most commonly made with pork and called tonkatsu. It’s breaded and fried, then served in strips with a deep, dark sauce that draws its distinctive taste from Worcestershire sauce and ketchup. In Hawai‘i, though, the chicken version is most popular, especially with kids.

• 4 pounds (15-20) chicken thighs, boned, skinned and flattened• 1 pound panko – Japanese style bread crumbs (available in the ethnic section is most markets)Batter:• 2 eggs • 1⁄4 teaspoon each: salt & pepper• 3⁄4 cup corn starch • 1 cup waterKatsu sauce:• 1⁄2 cup ketchup • 1⁄4 cup Worcestershire sauce• 1⁄2 cup sugar • 1⁄4 cup water• Dash of hot sauce

Combine Batter ingredients. Coat chicken in batter, then in panko. Fry in oil heated to 325˚F until brown and crispy; cut into strips and serve with Katsu Sauce.

To make Katsu Sauce, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil.

Variation: Tonkatsu (Pork Cutlet) - Substitute lean pork slices for chicken.

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 it’s 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 Hawai‘i’s outdoors, do yourself a favor. Protect the skin you’re in. Listed below are a few guidelines to help you and your family keep cool and healthy while on vacation or at home.

East Coast Sightseeing

The east coast of Kaua‘i has been named the Coconut Coast for the stands of coconut trees that date back to

when Hawaiian royalty lived at Wailua. The Coconut Coast features a wealth of shopping and dining opportunities, as well as a number of natural and historical wonders.

Lïhu‘e is the commercial center and county seat for Kaua‘i and Ni‘ihau and is just a short ride from the airport. The heart of town is Rice Street with government offices, banks, supermarkets, a post office and the Kaua‘i Museum (photo) which offers a his-torical look at Kaua‘i as well as exhibits of contemporary works by Kaua‘i’s artists. Rice Street continues down towards the Kaua‘i Marriott Resort and Beach Club at Kalapakï Beach. The resort’s golf courses offer great views of the area and the pounding surf of the Pacific.

Kalapakï is a sheltered bay for sunning, surfing and wind-surfing. Above the bay are Anchor Cove and Harbor Mall Shopping Centers. Näwiliwili Harbor is the island’s major port and hosts cruise ships and smaller boats. Drive up Niumalu Road and a right on Hulemalü Road to get a view of the Menehune Fishpond (Alakoko Fishpond).

Näwiliwili Road from Niumalu takes you to Grove Farm Homestead Museum, a living tribute to the beginnings of the Kaua‘i sugar industry. Traveling farther on Näwiliwili Road, you’ll find Kukui Grove, the largest shopping center on the island. Further along on Kaumuali‘i Highway (50) are Kilohana Estate and Kaua‘i Community College.

Going back north on Highway 50 takes you into Lïhu‘e and onto Kühiö Highway (56). From there, head off to see Wailua Falls and the rest of the Coconut Coast. To reach the falls, take Mä‘alo Road (583) off Highway 56 at Kapaia and follow the signs. Or, continue on Kühiö Highway to Wailua, where ‘Öpaeka‘a Falls, Poli‘ahu Heiau and Kamökila Hawaiian Village are all on Kuamo‘o Road (580).

Just beyond Wailua is the town of Kapa‘a. Once the heart of the plantation community, this historic town is home to doz-ens of eateries and shops. A recent addition to the Kapa‘a area is Ke Ala Hele Makalae (The Path that Goes by the Coast), a multi-use path for bicyclists and pedestrians that hugs the coast from Kapa‘a north to Keälia Beach and beyond.

South Shore Sightseeing

Every month is a great month to enjoy the sunny skies for which the South Shore area is famous. It’s the per-

fect weather for tennis, golf, surfing, and snorkeling. So, whether you want to catch up on your sunbathing, bounce around in the waves or take a sunset stroll—the sunny South Shore of Kaua‘i offers a little something for everyone.

Driving south on Kaumuali‘i Highway (50) from Lïhu‘e, you’ll see the Hoary Head Ridge. The sil-houette of the top of the mountain is called Queen Victoria’s Profile. Turn left onto Route 520 and travel through the Tunnel of Trees, planted by a pioneering Köloa rancher, to the remains of an old Sugar Mill and a sculp-ture depicting all the ethnic groups that contributed to the success of Hawai‘i’s sugar industry.

The center of the hamlet is called Old Köloa Town. It grew up around Hawai‘i’s first sugar plantation—Köloa means long cane—and it’s the last of its breed on Kaua‘i. A genuine plantation town, lovingly and authentically restored, just as they were in Köloa’s heyday.

Take a right from the Tunnel of Trees road and then left onto Po‘ipü Road and you’ll pass the Kiahuna

Golf Course, where stone wal ls bui l t by Hawaiians and e a r l y p l a n t a t i o n immigrants give the course the feeling of a historic park. Bear to the right onto Läwai Road to head toward Po‘ipü. A sign that says “Welcome to Po‘ipü Beach” indicates the junction of Läwai and Po‘ipü roads.

Läwai Road takes you to the Spouting Horn, a “geyser” that shoots ocean water out of an ancient lava tube (photo above), and the National Tropical Botanical Gardens (808 742-2623) and its collection of rare native Hawaiian plants.

Return on Läwai Road and take a right on Po‘ipü Road to Ho‘owili Road, which takes you to Po‘ipü Park and Brennecke’s Beach. Near the end of the road is the Grand Hyatt Kaua‘i Resort and Spa and Shipwreck Beach. Continuing on Köloa Road (Highway 530), you’ll come to the intersection of Highway 50 at Läwai. Further west on Highway 50 is Kaläheo, the first large town between Lïhu‘e and Hanapëpë.

West Side Sightseeing

Part of the real appeal of the Garden Island is its quality of rural life. One small town seems to slip

into another — each with its own slice of island life. As you drive west on Highway 50, keep watch for the sign to Hanapëpë, billed as “Kaua‘i’s Biggest Little Town.”

It was at Waimea Bay that Captain Cook first made landfall in the Sandwich Islands in 1778. Many buildings in Waimea are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Stay on Kekaha Road and you’ll pass through Kekaha, a country town complete with an old sugar mill and one-story, wooden plantation homes. In the past, neatly planted sugar cane fields fanned out as far as the eye could see. Waimea Canyon Plaza is the last stop before driving up towards Waimea Canyon, the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific,” Kaua‘i’s most famous visitor attraction.

Beyond Waimea Canyon you’ll enter Köke‘e State Park, home of the Köke‘e Lodge and Köke‘e Natural History Museum (808 335-9975), the interpretive visitor center for Waimea Canyon and Köke‘e State Parks and home to fascinating exhibits that highlight Kaua‘i’s natural history.

Waimea Canyon on Kauai’s west side has been called the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”

North Shore Sightseeing

The North Shore extends from Moloa‘a to Näpali. It’s miles of beaches, great snorkeling, striking cliffs and

lush countryside. Kïlauea lies between the 22- and 24-mile markers. Turn down Kïlauea Road to see the Kïlauea Lighthouse and Kïlauea Point National Wildlife Ref-uge. Kïlauea Point is famous for shearwaters, boobies, frigates, monk seals, and a rugged coastline.

Kalihiwai Valley, located at the 25-mile marker, is the site of the Kalihiwai River and a spectacular waterfall. To reach ‘Anini Beach, turn onto Kalihiwai Road on the Hana-lei side of the bridge. At the dead end sign, take the left fork onto ‘Anini Road. ‘Anini Beach is good for beginning windsurfers, snorkeling and swimming. There are public rest rooms, showers and picnic tables.

Princeville is the major resort development on the North Shore with the spectacular Princeville Hotel, a golf

course, shopping center, Hanalei Bay Resort, stables, and more. Hanalei Valley Lookout (top photo) is on the left side of

Kühiö Highway, just past Princeville Shopping Center, and offers one of the best views of Hanalei Valley. An informa-tive plaque tells of the valley’s rich agricultural history.

When in Hanalei Town, turn right at Aku Road to reach Hanalei Bay. Another right at the dead end leads to Black Pot Beach Park, Hanalei Pier and Hanalei River.

Beyond Hanalei, the road winds past Lumaha‘i Beach, Maniniholo Dry Cave, Hä‘ena Beach Park, Limahuli Gar-den, and ends at Kë‘é Beach, gateway to the Näpali Coast.

Another beautiful day on the Näpali Coast. Carmen Craig photo.

elvety green heart-shaped leaves that tremble in the breeze, and whose corms, or tuberous bodies, fatten underwater — these are kalo

plants, Hawaiian soul food. On Kaua‘i, stop at the Hanalei Valley overlook in Princeville, on the North Shore, where you will see kalo as part of the breath-taking green quilt of the 917-acre Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge where about 50 species of birds cohabit. Kalo, the official State Plant of Hawai‘i as of July 1, is used to make poi, the pudding-like delicacy that is the staff of life to Hawaiians.

Many call the plant taro, but the Hawaiian language has no “t’s” or “r’s.” Their word for it is kalo. It is the number one staple of the Hawaiian diet and loaded with nutrients. Kalo lovers harvest and peel the corms, the underwater tubers, then cook them and eat them like potatoes. They also mash the cooked corm with water to make poi. Kalo is an excellent source of carbohydrates and, because it is an alkali-producing food, helps to balance the pH factor in the body. Kalo leaves — called lü‘au leaves, they give the

Hawaiian feast its name — taste like spinach and are rich in calcium, iron, phospho-

rus, thiamine, riboflavin and vitamins A, B and C.One of about 30 or so species

of plants that ancient Polynesians brought with them to these islands

in their voyaging canoes, kalo

is deeply entwined in the culture. “The Kumulipo,” an ancient Hawaiian chant detailing the creation of the uni-verse, tells of Wäkea, the sky god, forming a union with his daughter, with whom he had two sons. The first son,

H ä l o a - n a k a , i t means long, trem-bling stem, was born malformed, apparently lifeless. Buried outside the home, Häloa-naka grew to become the kalo plant. The second son was perfectly formed.

Wäkea named him Häloa, which means long stem. Häloa became the first man and the ancestor of all Hawaiian peo-ple. To this day, Hawaiians love, respect and mälama, or care for, the kalo plant, revering it as their elder brother. They mälama the kalo, and in return, the kalo will mälama them by providing food.

Making poi at Waipä

At Waipä, a 1,600 acre Hawaiian-managed ahupua‘a (a land division from the uplands to the sea) along Kaua‘i’s north shore, volunteers and staff practice

and perpetuate the culture through, among other projects, their work in the lo‘i (kalo fields) and by preparing and milling poi for the community.

In the photo above, Aunty Kalehua Ham Young (left) and Aunty Loke Perreira peel cooked kalo. Modern poi mak-ers no longer have to pound the kalo, as shown in the top illustration. Instead, Ryan Like (right) guides poi during one of three millings through a machine. He’ll add a small amount of water at the last stage to achieve the proper consistency of the finished poi, shown in the bottom photo before it is bagged.

Other projects at Waipä include clearing and refor-estation of upland areas, restoration work on a tradi-tional Hawaiian fishpond and maintaining an organic veg-etable garden. To learn more about Waipä Foundation, its mission, projects and programs, and volunteer opportunities, visit WaipaFoundation.org or call 808 826-9969.

Did you know that the Lïhu‘e Airport houses yet another unique Kaua‘i experience? Through the

Hawai‘i Tourism Authority “Greetings” program and the County of Kaua‘i Office of Economic Development, funding is provided to design and install changing exhibitions that give airline passengers a g l i m p s e i n t o s o m e aspect of life and the arts on the Garden Island.

With the new “Kaua‘i — Live Theatre Capital of the Pacific” window, the Garden Island Arts Council intends to show the immense productivity, creativ-ity and cooperation of the various theatre groups on Kaua‘i through the use of photo montages of past and current productions. Groups such as Kaua‘i Community Players, Hawai‘i Children’s Theatre, Women in Theatre, Kaua‘i Per-

forming Arts Center, Purple Stripe Honu Theatre, Oceanside Productions, South Pacific, and other independent produc-tions keep the public well fed with a vari-ety of stage shows all year long.

A recent win-dow detai led the history of Papahänau-mokuäkea National Marine Sanctuary in the Northwest

Hawaiian Islands. Earlier, a display about lauhala hats and baskets, and the weavers that continue this Hawaiian tra-dition, had stopped many passengers dead in their tracks. Pilots, stewardesses, security guards, maintenance workers, and even TSA workers have spoken of their appreciation of the changing displays that greet them as they walk along the concourse.

A display of works by Kaua‘i woodworkers (below left) gave a glimpse into the fine craftsmanship and varied uses of wood by different craftsmen. Another earlier

window of antique and contemporary light fixtures (below right), from tiki torches to kitschy hula girl

lamps, called attention to the subject of lights.So, slow down in the airport and enjoy these displays!

(Local residents should remember that dogs present serious disease and injurious threat to marine mammals. Please keep your

dogs leashed and well away from these beach visitors.)

Photos and copy from the Kaua‘i Monk Seal Watch Program, www.KauaiMonkSeal.com.

AlohA, And welcome to the islAnd of KAuA‘i.As you visit our beaches, you may see one of the most critically

endangered marine mammals on Earth, the Hawaiian Monk Seal. Your help is vital to ensure their survival. Please read

the following guidelines for observing the seals (and Hawaiian sea turtles as well).

ALWAYS stay well behind barricades or signs placed around a basking seal, and at least 150 feet from seals in unmarked areas.

REMEMBER to maintain a much greater distance from a mother and pup, or any seal that appears disturbed or agitated.

ALWAYS pass outside barricades, or above an unbarricaded seal, not between the seal and the shoreline.

ALWAYS photograph seals from the proper distance and never use flash photography in their presence.

REMEMBER children. Advise them of proper behavior. An agitated (or even friendly) 400- to 600- pound animal could bite or cause other serious injury.

ALWAYS report any sightings and/or harassment — on the beach, in the water or from a boat operator — to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s 24-hour Marine Mammal Hotline at 808 220-7802 or toll free at 888 256-9840; or to the state’s Department of Land and Natural Resources’ 24-hour hotline at 808 643-DLNR.

REMEMBER State and Federal laws. Harassment or distur-bance of a Hawaiian Monk Seal can incur fines exceeding $25,000 and up to five years of imprisonment.

Enjoy these natural treasures of our state. Your respect for their well-being and survival will ensure their presence during

your next visit and for generations to come.

Protect Our Reefs and BeachesDon’t Leave Butts on the Beach

Cigarette butts are among the five major trash items found on Kauai’s beaches. Also, wildlife mistaking floating butts for food may swallow them and die. Use an old drink or food container filled with sand

to hold cigarette butts until they can be discarded safely and properly.
