Aloha Rotarians and Friends,
We had a great guest speaker today, Keanu Young,  Assistant Coordinator of the Public Access Room at the State capitol. It was an interesting learning experience with some points many of us may not have known:
* It is a division of the Legislature that is open to the public 8 - 4:40 year round, and has 6 public computers and people there to assist you with searches. You can sign up for Hearing Notices.
* It is part of the Literacy, Research, Systems and Information, and Legislative Information branch that has been around for 27 years
* It won a National Award in 2012 for the best website, nationally, and is one of the only Full Service Resource Centers in the country.
* The Public Access Room is funded by taxpayers and there is no cost to use it.
* It assists the public to better understanding of Advocacy, Policy Issues and much more information about the Legislature and its dynamics.
* The Website has won awards and has lots of information, such as newsletters that go back 10 years, a Testimony Template (YES you can do it online, or via video) and has a great "kid friendly" component  that teaches kids
     in a fun, age=appropriate way.
*Advocacy is intended to all Hawaii rural areas and neighbor islands with workshops - assist them in getting involved.
* The City Council is in session most of the years but the legislature only a fraction of that; therefore over 3000 bills are introduced at the beginning - so talk to your legislators before session begins.
CAR WASH:  We did really well - report will be forthcoming.
FOUNDATION GIVING:  we are about 1/3 of the way to goal except for Polio Plus at 58 %.

Linda C.
Aloha Rotarians,
What a powerful, interesting and informative Guest Speaker we had today, in Dr. Arnold Laanui, Special Agent FBI.  He spoke on his "Risk Genome Project"  which reach has led him to ask " Where does BAD come from?" The FBI has an ADOPT A SCHOOL program, which at present is focusing on Waipahu HS.  They have the highest number of HPD calls (over 300) and 50 % of the juvenile crime in the state.  He has  researched the signs of dropout, problems associated with it, 50 % decline in HS graduation and many problems with these students.
Breaking the cycle offers 9th and 10th graders education and training on problems of apathy, truancy, poor behavior and teaches these students (who are often, ESL, transient, and have done time in juvenile detention, FBI  physical training, productivity, citizenship, decision making and  other important life skills, in conjunction with DOE standards, FBI Training and the Harvard 21 College of Ed Program.
The results are amazing at over 50% performance and graduation rate increase and lower incidents of problems and HPD calls.

After discussion and several options the group voted on Linda Yoshikami taking the principals shopping with $1,000 to be spent by Kipapa Elementary school and $500 to be spent by Mililani Waena. This money is to be used for school supplies.

It was a GRAND morning at our regular club meeting. OUR FIRST HAWAIIAN DISTRICT GOVERNOR and our FIRST HAWAIIAN GLOBAL SCHOLAR.

Her mission is to be a role model to transform lives in the Waianae area, where she lives. She is focused on the 2020 National Rotary Convention, which will take place here in Waikiki, and urges us to bring in at least one new member to share our SERVICE ABOVE SELF, social, and successes of our clubs, as we work in our communities and in the world. IMUA (move forward). When you see a canoe of six people, ready to start to paddle, paddles are up and the call is made: IMUA - move forward. And that is what we must do in our clubs.
Her Bide Ride Project is called RIDE, SO OTHER CAN WALK: it raises money for Polio Plus.
Nalani was accompanied by Doreen Higa, AG, and Sandy her Secretary. WE had a full house with most of our Rotarians and friends in attendance. Welcome back, Kurt Rhoney !. Nalani inducted JANE LAWTON back into the club.

Linda C.
Aloha Rotarians,
We had a really full house this am. Nice to see everybody. Our wonderful guest speaker, Peter Apo, from OHA, gave us a very meaningful and informative talk on" OHA: The Good, The Bad and the Ugly"  Why should we care /  He spoke of the Hawaiian people as tolerant,successful, educated and welcoming  in the early days. they then lost their land and their p[politics to the western model and growth was at the expense of the Hawaiian people. They have suffered Tran generational Trauma as a result of 2/3 of the population dying of western disease. 
He spoke of the Hawaiian "Big Five'  in land owners, OHA, Queens and Hi Homelands but there needs to be better communication and a common vision for ALL the people of Hawaii. Hawaiian culture is at an all-time high, so it is a good time to practice true ALOHA and move forward.
NEXT WEEK SPEAKER:  Robert Speer - Kunia Orchid Society.
