Attempted   Robbery   Upper   Kaiwiki  

Calendar  

Minutes   of   Association   meeting   of   March   7  

A   white   Toyota   Tacoma   Vintage   2000   was   chased   off   a   property   on   upper   Kaiwiki   about   midnight   on  

Thursday   night.    There   was   an   attempt   to   break   into   a   vehicle;   interior   lights   alerted   the   resident   and   3  

men   were   chased   off   the   property   and   down   the   road.   The   license   plate   was   covered   with   some   kind   of  

bag.   Police   were   called   and   came   to   the   location   about   an   hour   after   the   event.    Neighbors   need   to   be  

watchful,   the   police   said   there   had   been   “multiple’   break-ins   in   the   area.  

CALENDAR   OF   EVENTS  

*   Saturday,   June   20,    8:30am:   Pavilion   and   Road   Cleanup   (meet   at   the   park)  

*   Saturday   March   7,    Noon    Annual   Membership   Meeting  

*   Saturday,   August   8,   Annual   end   of   summer   pot   luck   time   TBA  

*   Sunday,   December   6,   Holiday   party   time   TBA  

The   P avilion      a   materials   list   with   the   requested   pricing   was   submitted   to   Parks   and   Rec   on   Thursday.  

The   usual   time   delays   will   probably   be   exacerbated   by   the   CoronaVirus   pandemi c       still   hoping   to   get   to  

work   this   summer.  

Annual   Association   General    Meeting     Minutes  

The   annual   meeting   of   the   Wainaku-Kaiwiki   Community   Association   was   called   to   order   by   President  

Gary   Barr   at   1:00   P.   M.   on   Saturday,   March   7,   at   the   pavilion   in   Upper   Kaiwiki   Park.  

The   end-of-summer   picnic   is   scheduled   for   Saturday,   August   8.    The   annual   holiday   party   will   be   on  

Sunday,   December   6.  

Discussion   was   held   on   communications.    Our   website   is   basically   inactive;    Axel   Kratel   volunteered   to   get  

it   up   and   running,   and   to   be   the   system   operator   for   it.    Our   Facebook   page   suffers   from   the   same   problem  

of   irregular   updates.    Regular   communications   to   members   will   continue   to   be   via   email.   

While   there   have   been   no   reports   of   thefts   or   break-ins   in   the   last   few   months,   the   issue   remains   a  

concern.    We   should   all   continue   to   monitor   suspicious-acting   people   and   vehicles,   and   communicate   to  

the   Association   our   observations   and   concerns.

The   renovations   to   the   park   pavilion   are   still   progressing,   albeit   at   a   glacial   pace.    Gary   is   pushing   the  

county   as   much   as   possible,   but   getting   anything   from   them   takes   weeks.    However,   Gary   believes   it   is  

possible   to   have   the   renovation     in   the   coming   year.  

ELECTIONS:    All   current   of  and   Board   members   were   re-elected   by   unanimous   ballot.    They   are   as  

follows:   

 President   Gary   Barr  

 Vice-president   Roxy   Lynch  

Secretary   Dan   Lindsay  

 Treasurer   Jean   Trefethan  

 Members-at-large

 Scott   Trefethen  

Heather   Kimball,   candidate   to   succeed   Valerie   Poindexter   as   our   County   Council   representative,   attended  

the   meeting   and   spoke   about   her   candidacy.  

The   passing   of   Ernest   Pacheco,   long-time   Board   member   and   active   Association   participant,   was   noted.  

The   meeting   was   adjourned   at   [TIME   NOT   NOTED!].

KAIWIKI   CLEANUP  

Saturday,   Feb.   15    was   our   road   cleanup   day,   we  

had   the   best   turnout   yet   and   consequently   the  

biggest   (unfortunately)   garbage   haul.    Not  

pictured,   are   Sharon   O’Connell   and   Rick,   Hilary  

and   Tom   and   their   friend   Rachel   (who   is   from  

elsewhere),   Charlie   Pavao   and   Jean   Trefethen.    A  

sizable   group   (hope   I   didn’t   miss   anyone).    We  

  in   a   bit   over   an   hour     from   the   end   of   the  

pavement   all   the   way   to   Wainaku     the   old   saw  

about   many   hands   is   again   validated.   THANK   YOU!  

PARK   PAVILION   SAGA  

I   am   probably   the   only   one   who   can   testify   that  

progress,   (glacial   progress),   is   being   made,   as  

there   are   no   outward   signs   that   anything   is   happening.    The   county   has   in   their   possession,   for   nearly   a  

month,    a   list   of   the   materials   needed.    They   now   require   estimates   for   all   items,   something   we   only  

learned   this   past   week.    So   while   frustrations   abound,   and   virtuous   patience   is   being   tested,   we   are  

grinding   away   at   it   and   expect   to   see   material   progress   this   summer,   certainly   (?)   this   year.    So   as   we   are  

in   the   the   third   year   of   working   at   this,   certainty,   is   a   moving   target.    BUT,   when   we   get   the   materials   in  

hand,   we   will   need   people   to   help,   that   is,   to   do   the   renovation   work     which   is   a   new   roof   and   all   the  

support   structure   as   well   as   siding,   gutters   and   paint.  

Park   Improvement   Steering   Committee:    Mihaela   Ryer,   Scott   Trefethen,   Roxy   Lynch,   Gary   Barr  

 

MEET   &   GREET      County   Council   candidate   Heather   Kimball   will   be   coming   by   to   introduce   herself   and  

be   introduced   to   our   community   association..  

RECYCLING  

For   those   concerned   with   the   recent   reduction   of   recycling   services,   Paradise   Plastics   will   take   1,   2,   4,   5  

plastic   containers.    Business   Services   also   takes   1,   2’s   (bottle   shaped).    Recycling   is   dif  (shouldn’t   be),  

a   short   discussion   at   our   meeting   might   bring   up   some   avenues   that   would   make   it   easier   for   concerned  

people   to   deal   with   their   plastic.  

A   bit   of   uplift   ….   Mauna   Kea   Magistry

KAIWIKI   CLEANUP  

Saturday,   Feb.   15    is   our   next   scheduled   Road   Cleanup.    You   may   have   noticed   that   the   holiday   season   has  

left   its   presents   along   the   road.    Meet   at   the   upper   park   pavilion   at   8:30.    Bring   gloves,   the   association   will  

provide   orange   vests,   garbage   bags   and   water.  

PARK   PAVILION   SAGA  

The   park   pavilion   continues   to   age   as   we   slog   our   way  

through   the   process   to   apply   the   identi  funds   to   the  

purchase   of   materials   for   the   renovation.    The   good   news  

is   that   a   materials   list   has   been   turned   into   Parks   and  

Rec.    The   other   news   is   that   we   expect,   once   the   list   gets  

looked   at,   some   conversation   etc.   to   clarify,   modify   etc.  

We   are   hopeful   of   getting   to   work   this   summer.    Our  

Friends   of   the   Park   agreement   has   us,   volunteers,   doing  

the   work   with   oversight   from   our   contractor   Cherisse  

Marie   (also   a   volunteer)    So   the   beat   goes   on   ……

The   rest   is   for   those   interested   in   rain   data.    If   you   managed   to   get   this   far,   and   could   care   less   about   rain.  

Thanks   for,   well,   getting   this   far   (and   hopefully   see   a   few   of   you   on   the   15th).  

Rain   Rain   …..   Rain.  

Now   for   those   interested   in   rain   data.
