The Leilani’s on the Beach “Games and Grinds” celebration honors LIS qualified students — based on citizenship, academics and community service requirements — with a barbecue luncheon and play day at this premiere West Side location. Some 225 LIS students were treated to hours of fun-filled games, an onolicious barbecue lunch, prizes and a custom T-shirt. Lead coordinator Todd Hayase, a counselor at LIS and a renowned wrestling coach at Lahainaluna High School, thanked all on the Renaissance committee, including Cindy Koyama, Lori Koyama, Charmaine Ganer, Tom Norton, Donovan Seno, Jamie Donez, Daryl Munetake, Haley Vanoorde, Beth Fobbe Wills, Ui Kua’ana and Luann Socher. Hayase had special praise for Jason Donez, general manager of Leilani’s, Mark Tillman of Williams and Associates, the LIS cafeteria staff and all the parents that make it happen. “They’re all incredible,” said Coach Todd.

Each station will highlight projects and work done in robotics, technology and STEM, graphics, art, social studies, science and humanities. There will also be information on the Renaissance program, the school garden that is flourishing, the eBook platform and Achieve 3000.

The Volleyball, Robotics and Tech, and Wrestling Clubs will have food items for sale. For more information, contact Lori Koyama or Michelle Strauser at (808) 662-3965.


Ed Lyman to offer free Sea Talk

MAALAEA - Maui Ocean Center's free Sea Talk Series continues on Thursday, March 3, from 6 to 7 p.m. with a presentation on large whale entanglement response by Ed Lyman, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary's Large Whale Entanglement Response coordinator.

Entanglement is one of the primary threats to humpback whales and other marine mammals. Lyman has participated in disentangling whales for over 22 years.

He will describe the difficult - and sometimes dangerous - task of freeing a 40-ton, likely free-swimming whale from entangling gear. He will also provide some of the information gained over the years that might help mitigate the threat in the future.

Sea Talks are held in the Open Ocean exhibit with entry through the aquarium's front gate from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Seating is limited; advance reservations are recommended by calling 270-7088.
