We still don’t know the status of what could be live ordnance found Saturday afternoon off Sugar Beach in North Kihei. A snorkeler reported found it in nearshore waters and brought the device – which resembles a rocket-propelled mortar – to the beach. He called Maui Police who brought in enforcement officers of the Department of Land and Natural Resources. The Explosive Ordnance Team from O’ahu was also contacted.
Police closed the beach 100 feet in each direction but North Kihei Road traffic was not affected. DLNR is in control of the scene. DLNR’s last report was Saturday evening. At that time, the EOD squad had not yet arrived.
WAILUKU –Division of Conservation and Resources (DOCARE) Enforcement Officers and Makai Watch volunteers with the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), Community Fisheries Enforcement Unit (CFEU) will be at the Maui Mall this Saturday, December 20, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to help educate fishers about the new Maui Island fishing rules that became law on November 1.
The new rules affect the take of all uhu or parrot fish species, and many goat fish species such as kumu, moano kea, and weke. “The event this Saturday will help to reach fishermen and answer their questions about the new rules,” said Matt Yamamoto, Maui DOCARE Branch Chief. “This is a preventative measure as we’d rather educate than issue citations,” he said.
Fishers will also have an opportunity to learn about “Makai Watch”, a volunteer component of the CFEU designed to assist officers with educational efforts and to serve as additional “eyes and ears”. They also assist by manning education stations to increase awareness about the CFEU, a first-of-its-kind initiative for marine fisheries enforcement in Hawaii. Makai Watch volunteers rove the beaches within the CFEU project area where they distribute copies of fishing regulations, observe and document various activities, and remove marine debris wherever possible.
Since May 2013, CFEU officers and DOCARE colleagues have documented 1026 inspections, conducted 95 investigations and issued 62 citations to fishermen for fisheries related offenses. Officers also confiscated 3048 feet of illegal gill nets and 12 illegal throw nets. All violators were required to make court appearances and most convicted were ordered to pay fines between $100 – $250.
Recently, one repeat offender was fined and sentenced to 4 days in jail. His violations include two counts of unlawful use of nets within the Kahului Harbor Fisheries Management Area (FMA), exceeding the FMA bag limit, and possessing a throw net under the 2-inch minimum mesh size.
“As we see compliance increase in the area, fishermen are seeing more fish. A big part of achieving voluntary compliance is having fishermen who understand the rules, so our education and outreach efforts are very important,” said CFEU Supervisor Jeffrey Kinores.
He added, “The new Maui Island-specific rules include, changes to bag limits, size limits and includes species not regulated by previous rules. We encourage people to learn about these new rules before their next fishing trip.”
CFEU enforces fisheries laws in the northern portion of the moku of Wailuku, a 13-mile stretch of coastline between Hulu Island and Baldwin Beach Park. The pilot project is funded in part by Conservation International and the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation. The project is set to end in June 2015 unless permanent funding through the state legislature is provided.
To learn more about the new rules visit the DLNR’s website at www.dlnr.hawaii.gov/dar. To report violations, call DOCARE toll free from anywhere in Hawaii, 643-DLNR. People interested in joining the CFEU’s Makai Watch efforts can call (808) 873-3990.
HONOLULU — Four Molokai men will face arraignment and hearings in Maui Circuit Court later this month after being arrested and charged for their roles in a confrontation between two groups of fishermen in Molokai waters. The investigation was conducted by Maui Police Department with the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE).
On November 25, 2014 Albert K. Dudoit, Jr., age 27, Robin W. Dudoit, age 57, Floyd Kumukoa Kapuna, age 31 and Kaiula K. English, age 28 were arrested by Maui Police Department and DOCARE officers, and charged with:
All of the men were released after posting $50,000 bail each. The Grand Jury returned indictments on the four men stemming from an incident which occurred in Molokai waters in May 2014 in which the men are accused of illegally boarding a vessel in state waters.
The vessel used by the four men was seized as evidence and transported to Maui with the assistance of a U.S. Coast Guard C-130 aircraft.
“We are willing to work with any community that wants to forge a proactive partnership with DLNR to ensure public safety, access, and lawful behavior concerning the natural resources of Hawaii,” said William J. Aila, Jr., DLNR Chairperson. “We will not tolerate community involvement in unlawful criminal behavior.”
“DOCARE officers have worked very hard to make this case because when there are people willing to come forward and there is sufficient evidence to show a criminal action is being perpetrated on citizens, we will take action,” said Randy K. Awo, recently retired DOCARE Chief.
The Department of Land and Natural Resources wishes to thank the Maui Prosecutor’s Office, Maui Police Department and US Coast Guard for their assistance with this case.
Honolulu – The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), along with the Conservation Council for Hawaii, the Center for Biological Diversity and the Monk Seal Foundation are now rewarding $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the illegal killing of a baby monk seal in Anahola, Kauai on November 30, 2014. That’s double the initial reward offered by HSUS after the killing was announced Tuesday.
William J. Aila, Jr. Chairperson of the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) said, “The support these organizations are providing to help identify, arrest and convict the individual(s) responsible for this heinous act, is invaluable in raising public awareness and generating information about this killing and previous ones.”
The four organizations are also offering $10,000 rewards for information that leads to arrest and conviction in each of four previous illegal monk seal deaths in 2011 and 2012.”
Call the DLNR Tipline with information at 1-855-DLNR-TIP. All information is held in confidence.
LIHU‘E, KAUA‘I – The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), in cooperation with the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR), is investigating the suspicious death of a Hawaiian monk seal on the Northeast coast of Kauai. Anyone with information about this incident should call the toll-free, confidential reward tip line, 1-855-DLNR-TIP. The mindless act of a stupid person against a defenseless animal comes at a time when the population of monk seals is perilously falling.
In cooperation with DLNR, the Humane Society of the United States, (HSUS) has posted a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this latest monk seal death.
The young female seal (RF58) was found dead from blunt force trauma at a beach in Anahola last week – on Nov. 30. She was born on June 28, 2014 on Kaua‘i’s northeast coast. RF58 was seen perfectly healthy and behaving normally when observed near her birthplace less than 24 hours before she was found dead.
“Like all Hawaiian monk seals, RF58 was a vital and integral part of our native Hawaiian ecosystem,” said William J. Aila, Jr., DLNR chairperson. “Killing a healthy young female monk seal in the wild is senseless and only makes things worse for our local ocean resources and the people who depend on them.”
RF58 was the daughter of a well-known seal (RH58, or “Rocky”) who spends most of her time on O‘ahu, but usually pups on Kauai. She and her mother were victims of a dog attack in July 2014 that killed another pup. After developing abscesses (i.e., infection) from the dog bites, RF58 was treated by a veterinarian and recovered.
According to the preliminary post-mortem report from the Marine Mammal Center and NOAA Fisheries’ Conservation Medicine Officer, “The seal likely did not die immediately, but from complications associated with massive trauma and internal bleeding.”
Monk seals are endemic to Hawai‘i; they are a native species found nowhere else in the world. The species is critically endangered.
It’s a Class C felony to kill a monk seal. Someone convicted could face fines of up to $50,000 and five years in prison. It is also against federal law to kill or harm a Hawaiian monk seal and a conviction can include additional fines and jail time.
The most recent suspicious death of a Hawaiian monk seal was in April, 2012, also on Kaua‘i. From Nov. 2011-April 2012, there were four seals found dead under suspicious circumstances on Kaua‘i and Moloka‘i. The mysterious deaths on Moloka’i came at a time when other cowards (and perhaps the same ones) were killing defenseless horses on Moloka’i.
The reward being offered in this case is in addition to standing rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people responsible for killing the four monk seals on Molokai and Kauai in 2011 and 2012.
Anyone having information related to these deaths should call the NOAA OLE hotline at 1-800-853-1964 or Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement (DOCARE) at the Tipline at 1-855-DLNR-TIP or 643-DLNR.

J: WELCOME TO MAUI TV NEWS – MAUI’S EXCLUSIVE WEEKLY ONLINE AND TELEVISION N EWSCAST – DEVOTING COVERAGE TO STORIES THAT MATTER TO MAUI COUNTY – AND WE’RE IN HIGH DEFINITION. I’M JEFF KING.
J: WITH LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO BEFORE THE NOVEMBER GENERAL ELECTION, BOTH SIDES ON THE ISSUE OF A GMO MORATORIUM IN MAUI COUNTY ARE GETTING LOUDER AND BOLDER. REMEMBER THE LYRIC FROM THE BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD SONG THAT SAYS, “NOBODY’S RIGHT IF EVERYBODY’S WRONG.” DOES IT SOMETIMES FEEL THAT WAY ON THE ISSUE OF GENETICALLY MODIFIED ORGANISMS? SINCE THE GROUND-BREAKING ACCOMPLISHMENT OF A CROWD-SOURCED BALLOT INITIATIVE TO SUSPEND G-M-O PRODUCTION ON MAUI UNTIL SCIENCE CAN PROVE IT’S SAFE…MUCH HAS HAPPENED. AFTER NOVEMBER FOURTH, WHEN IT SHOULD ALL BE OVER EXCEPT FOR THE SHOUTING…THERE’S NO TELLING WHEN THE SHOUTING MIGHT END.
(on-cam) REPRESENTATIVES FROM BOTH SIDES OF THIS RED HOT ISSUE HAD A LOT MORE TO SAY THAN WE HAVE TIME TO INCLUDE IN THIS NEWSCAST. BUT WE DO HAVE IT ON OUR WEBSITE. FOR THE EXTENDED VERSION OF THIS STORY, GO TO MAUI TV NEWS DOT COM AND LOOK FOR OUR SPECIAL REPORT.
(LIPOA)(PiP-AERIAL – HONOLUA BAY)
J: IT’S ONE OF THE MOST ICONIC AND PICTURESQUE PLACES ON EARTH. THIS WEEK THE “SOLD SIGN” IF YOU WILL WENT UP AT LIPOA POINT AND THAT’S A GOOD THING.
(VO) ACTING GOVERNOR SHAN TSUTSUI WAS JOINED BY COUNTY AND STATE REPRESENTATIVES AND A CROWD OF VERY HAPPY PEOPLE TO SIGN THE DOCUMENT ACQUIRING THE POINT AND ADJACENT LANDS – LANDS THAT WILL STAY OPEN AND FREE. THE SALE PRICE OF JUST LESS THAN 20 MILLION DOLLARS WILL ALSO BE OF LOCAL BENEFIT. MAUI LAND AND PINEAPPLE COMPANY WILL USE A CHUNK OF THAT MONEY FOR TYHE RETIREMENT AND PENSION PLANS FOR SOME 16-HUNDRED MAUI LAND RETIREES.
(ON-CAM) THURSDAY’S CEREMONY BROUGHT TO A CONCLUSION THE PROCESS THAT BEGAN WITH THE PASSING OF ACT 241 LAST YEAR THAT AUTHORIZED THE DEPARTMENT OF LAND AND NATURAL RESOURCES TO BUY THE POINT WHICH STRETCHES FROM HONOLUA BAY TO HONOKAHAU BAY – AN AREA OF ABOUT 250 ACRES.
J: THE CAMPAIGN NAME SAYS IT ALL: STOP OR GET STOPPED. INCRESED ENFORCEMENT BEGAN THIS WEEK AND RUNS THROUGH OCTOBER 19TH. THE IDEA IS TO GET MOTORISTS TO STOP AT STOP SIGNS AND RED LIGHTS…NOT JUST SLOW ROLL THROUGH. THEY’LL ALSO TICKET DRIVERS WHO TRY TO SQUEEZE INTO THE INTERSECTION – BLOCKING IT BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT TO WAIT THROUGH ANOTHER TRAFFIC SIGNAL CYCLE. MAUI POLICE WILL BE FOCUSING ON LOCATIONS WHERE THE PROBLEM IS MOST ACUTE BASED ON AVAILABLE DATA AND CITIZEN COMPLAINTS.
MEANWHILE, MAUI POLICE HAVE THEIR HANDS FULL IN TWO OTHER SIGNIFICANT CASES.
(FF-CG-VO) THEY’RE ASKING FOR THE PUBLIC’S HELP TO LOCATE THIS MAN WHO ON SEPTEMBER 5TH WENT ON A SHOPPING SPREE WITH CREDIT CARDS HE STOLE FROM A KIHEI RESIDENCE. SURVEILLANCE CAMERA GOT TWO VERY CLEAR PICTURES…AND YOU CAN EVEN SEE A STORE SECURITY GUARD LOOKING LIKE HE’S LOOKING RIGHT AT THE GUY…BUT LIKELY WAS UNAWARE THAT A CRIME HAD JUST BEEN COMMITTED.
(ON-CAM) IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL THE MPD NON-EMERGENCY LINE AT 244-6400. IN ANOTHER CASE, POLICE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR A MAN WHO TRIED TO KIDNAP A 10 YEAR-OLD BOY IN PUKALANI LAST MONTH.
THE SUSPECT REPORTEDLY GRABBED THE BOY’S ARM YELLING “COME HERE.”
(FF-CG-VO) THE BOY WAS ABLE TO PULL AWAY AND PROVIDED A DESCRIPTION THAT HELPED AN MPD SKETCH ARTST CREATE THESE IMAGES. THE SUSPECT IS DESCRIBED AS A LOCAL MAN ABOUT FIVE FEET, FIVE INCHES TALL, WEIGHING ABOUT 240 POUNDS. THERE WAS A BIT OF CONFUSION WHEN THE DRAWINGS WERE RELEASED. THEY BOY RECALLS A TRIBAL DESIGN TATTOO THE LENGTH OF HIS RIGHT ARM…BUT IN THE SKETCH IT’S DEPICTED AS A LEFT ARM. IT WAS LIKELY MEANT TO LOOK LIKE THIS.
J: UP NEXT ON MAUI TV NEWS, THIS SUNDAY IT’S THE BIG ONE: THE MOLOKAI HOE AND YOU CAN WATCH LIVE FOR FREE. WE’LL GIVE YOU THE DETAILS.

J:THE LATEST EXHIBIT AT THE HUI NO’EAU VISUAL ARTS CENTER IN MAKAWAO IS TITLED “MIXED PLATE.” PAUL JANES-BROWN WENT TO SEE WHAT THEY WERE DISHING UP AND HERE IS A TASTE FOR THIS WEEK’S CURTAIN CALL
PJB: MAUI ARTISTS ALWAYS RISE TO THE OCCASION WHEN IT COMES TO A THEME SHOW. FOR THIS EXHIBIT THE HUI ASKED THE ARTISTS TO EXPLORE HAWAII’S MULTICULTURALISM. ARTISTS WERE ENCOURAGED TO INVESTIGATE THE RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN AND AMONG HAWAII’S ETHNIC GROUPS AND HOW THESE CREATE THE DIVERSITY THAT DISTINGUISHES HAWAII AND SPECIFICALLY, MAUI.
JUROR, MICHAEL TAKEMOTO SELECTED FIFTY-TWO PIECES FROM FORTY-EIGHT ARTISTS. THE WORKS INCLUDE TWO AND THREE DIMENSIONAL PIECES INCLUDING CLOTHING AND JEWELRY.
THE JUROR’S CHOICE AWARD WENT TO KATHERINE STONE AYERS WATERCOLOR, ENTITLED TIDE FISHING POOL. MR. TAKEMOTO SAID, “I WAS REALLY MOVED BY KATHERINE’S IMAGERY, IT’S NOSTALGIC AND SENTIMENTAL IN A TIMELESS WAY. ANYONE WHO HAS GROWN UP IN THE ISLANDS CAN RELATE TO EXPLORING AND DISCOVERING THE WONDERS OF TIDE POOLS AS CHILDREN, AND I THINK SHE REALLY CAPTURED THOSE SENTIMENTS. TECHNICALLY, HER COMPOSITION IS VERY DYNAMIC AND HER USE OF WATERCOLOR IS SUBTLE AND SUBLIME. IT REMINDED ME OF THE BEAUTIFUL AND INTIMATE WATERCOLORS THAT WINSLOW HOMER PAINTED WHEN HE WAS IN THE BAHAMAS.”
THE ONLY OTHER WORK THAT RECEIVED JUROR RECOGNITION WAS CARMEN GARDER’S MARVELOUSLY WHIMSICAL BAYWATCH, WHICH RECEIVED HONORABLE MENTION. THE JUXTAPOSITION OF THE TITLE AND WHAT ONE ASSOCIATES THE WORD BAYWATCH WITH AND THE IMAGE PRESENTED IS MASTERFUL. MS. GARDNER IS OUR FINEST WATERCOLORIST AND AMONG THE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN. HER WORK, LIKE KURK KURAKOWA’S, ALWAYS HAS A GREAT STORY THAT DRAWS THE VIEWER INTO A CONVERSATION WITH IT MOVING PAST WHAT IS SEEN INTO A DEEPER RELATIONSHIP WITH THE WORK. THIS IS THE CHARACTERISTIC OF A GREAT REALISTIC PAINTER; THE ABILITY GO BEYOND WHAT IS PRESENTED ON THE CANVAS. THINK ABOUT ANDREW WEYETH AND EDWARD HOPPER FOR EXAMPLE.
BARCLAY HILL’S PRIMAL ROOTS – EARTH WOOD FIRE IS LAVA, KOA AND RAKU. IT IS AN ELEGANT, UNDERSTATED SCULPTURE. THE FINE, SMOOTH FINISHED KOA WHICH RESEMBLES A CANOE PROW THE ROUGH LAVA BALANCES ON THE WOOD THAT IS OFFSET ON A TURNED INCISED CERAMIC BASE.
MARY ANN LEIGH HAS A MARVELOUS CERAMIC AND CHAIN WORK ENTITLED OUR KEIKI + PLAYING TOGETHER = CULTURAL CYNERGISM. A HOST OF GUMBY LIKE CERAMIC FIGURES PERFORM ALL SORTS OF ACROBATICS. THE SHADOWS MAKE THE PIECE COME ALIVE.
OTHER NOTABLE SCULPTURE WAS TURNED IN BY PAMELA NESWALD HER GIACOMETTIESQUE TRANSPLANT, CRAIG GARDNER’S EVOCATIVE MILO WOOD NIGHT WATCHER, AND FINALLY CAROL LEE’S THOUGHT PROVOKING EAST MEETS WEST MADE OF OLD CHINESE COIN, STONE AND 150 YEAR OLD BARN WOOD BASE.
SURF BOARDS ARE FREQUENTLY DECORATED, BUT SELDOM DO THEY RISE TO THE LEVEL OF HIGH ART. THAT IS NOT THE CASE WITH SHONE SEMPELL’S GORGEOUS SEASCAPE THIS IS A BOARD THAT BELONGS ON A WALL NOT IN THE POUNDING SURF.
ED LANE HAS A DYPTYCH OIL CALLED STINKEYE. MR. LANE’S VIBRANT PALATE AND POLYNESIAN SUBJECT MATTER, EARN HIM THE ACCOLADE; MAUI’S GAUGIN.
IT’S ALWAYS EXCITING TO DISCOVER THE WORK OF A NEW ARTIST. ALLEN ROGER PUFAHL’S EXCEPTIONALLY HAUNTING MAUI MYSTIC IS AN ACRYLIC ABSTRACT THAT LOOKS AT ONCE LIKE SURF CRASHING INTO ROCKS AND CLOUDS FLOATING ABOVE A MOUNTAIN IN THE UPPER PART OF THE PAINTING IS A TRANSPARENT PLATE THAT GIVES IT A MYSTERIOUS, SURREAL QUALITY. MR PUFAHL’S SKILL IN TEXTURE AND COLOR GIVES THE WORK THE SOFT FLAVOR OF PASTELS.
DON BERNSHOUSE’S DREAMING OF HC WESTERMANN’S DRAWING OF HIMSELF AND SHIPS LOOKS TO ME MORE LIKE PICASSO THAN WESTERMANN. IN THIS IMAGE WESTERMANN IS ON THE BOTTOM LEFT AND PICASSO ABOVE HIM AND BERNHOUSE’S ON THE RIGHT. IT’S AN IMAGE THAT GRABS THE VIEWER.
CHOP SUEY IS A STYLISH ABSTRACT BY JULIE PETERSON THAT DANCES ON THE WALL.
WEARABLE ART IS REPRESENTED BY A TERIFFIC JEAN JACKET ENTITLED QUEEN KAAHUMANU BY SUSAN DAVIS. IT IS FIT FOR A QUEEN. DAVIS HAS TAKEN THE LOWLY DENIM WARDROBE MAINSTAY AND TURNED IT INTO A FASHION STATEMENT WORTHY OF A ROYAL ROCK STAR LIKE LADY GAGA OR TAYLOR SWIFT.
ANOTHER TAKE ON DENIM IS MORE TRADITIONAL BUT NO LESS DRAMATIC TAMARA MCKAY’S MAUI TRUE GRIT IS A PHOTOGRAPH THAT FEELS LIKE A PAINTING. IN FACT IT WILL REMIND THE VIEWER OF SUZY PAPANIKOLAS’ WORK.
AFTER THREE YEARS ON THE MAINLAND, WE WELCOME BACK LALLIE GROTH, WHOSE UNIQUE STYLE HAS GOTTEN HER INTO VIRTUALLY EVERY SHOW SHE HAS ENTERED. HER KAUPO CONTINUES HER HUMOUROUS TAKE ON ART. SHE IS SERIOUSLY FUNNY. HERE SHE RELATES A STORY ABOUT LEARNING HOW TO SAY KAUPO. READ IT, IT IS VERY FUNNY.
LORI KAPROWSKI PUTS PAINT ON CANVAS WITH CONFIDENCE AND ENERGY. HER LARGE OIL XO-DEBUT EXHIBITS AN EXCITING ORDERLY RANDOMNESS. THIS PAINTING IS ALIVE, KINETIC. MS KAPROWSKI’S RARE IMPASTO TECHNIQUE SETS HER APART. THIS WORK IS INFLUENCED BY HER TIME LIVING IN FIJI. THE WARMTH OF THE ISLANDS IS EXPRESSED THROUGH HER USE OF VIBRANT COLORS. THE X’S ARE KISSES, BUTTERFLIES, THE O’S ARE HUGS, YOGA BALLS, AND THE FEMALE ANATOMY.
OTHER NOTABLE WORK WAS DONE BY MARLENE SINGLEHURST, RICI GUILD, WENDY ROMANCHAK’S MAKANI ROAD DEPICITION ENTITLED BEAUTY WITH ALL THE NUTS AND BOLTS; PAM ANDELIN, PAT MASUMOTO, SHAY BELISLE, DEBBY VON TEMPSKY, LINDA EWING, CASEY MCCLAIN I LOVE HER KAMA AINA OIL OF A BLOND KEIKI WALKING ON THE BEACH WITH HER MOM OR GRAND MOM.
JOSH DAHL HUNG THE SHOW AND IT IS VERY CLEAN AND PROFESSIONAL LOOKING. THE HUI IS OPEN DAILY 9 AM TO 4 PM THIS SHOW RUNS UNTIL NOVEMBER 14. GO YOU WILL ENJOY IT.
THAT’S CURTAIN CALL FOR THIS WEEK, A HUI HOU. NEXT WEEK I’LL HAVE A REVIEW OF THE SCHAEFER GALLERY’S MODERN TWIST –CONTEMPORARY BAMBOO ART. STAY TUNED TO MAUITVNEWS FOR COMING ATTRACTIONS RIGHT AFTER THESE MESSAGES.
