    In April, 39 Kauai artists will open the doors to their studios during self-guided tours, offering a rare window to their techniques and ideas. Its an opportunity for visitors and the community to see artists working in their studios, said event founder and producer Donia Lilly, also one of the artists in the Kauai Art Tour. The free event kicks off April 9 with a reception and meet-and-greet at the Kauai Society of Artists Gallery at Kukui Grove Center from 5 to 8 p.m. The month-long Preview Exhibit will display works from each artist. Then on April 18 and 19, artists from Lihue to Waimea will open the doors to their studios, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. On April 25 and 26, artists from Wailua to Hanalei will open their studios, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Artwork may be available for purchase. Weve got all kinds of art that we normally dont see, said Lilly, adding there will be textile artists, weavers, jewelers, painters, ceramic artists and traditional Hawaiian carvers.

    Kauai is enjoying a reputation around the state for our dedication to improving everybodys fitness and wellness. One organization that has been instrumental in coordinating this fundamental shift in our community is Get Fit Kauai. The changes taking place here are so inspiring that our island-wide efforts have attracted the attention of national health officials.

    In February, Get Fit Kauai director Bev Brody was invited to Washington D.C., where she

    was honored with the 2015 National Physical ActivityPlan Champion Award in the Transportation and Community Design Sector. County of Kauai elected officials used the occasion of this national award to express their own appreciation for Get Fit Kauais efforts by issuinga mayoral proclamation and holding a special session of the County Council dedicated to the organization. Brody attributes all this recognition to the many dedicated in-dividuals who have been collaborating for years to advance public health on Kauai,and to the compelling nomination submitted to the National Physical Activity Plan Congress by Lehua Choy, MPH. Choy worked on the University ofHawaii at Manoas Healthy Hawaii Initia-tive Evaluation Team. She documented Get Fit Kauais performance in Influencing the Built Environment to Promote Physical Activity. Choy used the findings in that report as the core material to nominate Get Fit Kauai for recognition.

    Get Fit Kauai Gets National AwardBy Tommy Noyes The National Physical Activity Plans vision is that, one day, all

    Americans will be physically active and will live, work and play in environmentsthat facilitate regular physical activity. This year, more than two thousand nominations were sent in, yet only three organiza-tions in the entire nation wereactually honored with awards Get Fit Kauai was one. Following are some of Get Fit Kauais achievements that earned this recognition. In 2009, Get Fit Kauai convened Safe Routes to School and Built En-vironment task forces to instigate policy, systems and environmental changesconducive to increased physical activity for all. Policy changes championed by the Get Fit Kauai coalition led to the county adopting a Complete Streets policy, the state passing a law that fundsSafe Routes to School programs through increased fines for speeding in school zones, and changes to the subdivision code that establishes shorter blocklengths and requires sidewalks. The coalition worked closely with government agencies and policy makers to ensure accountability and that these policies are being implementedin a timely manner. The coalition collaborated with the Department of Public Works to develop infrastructure improvement plans for schools participating in the SafeRoutes to School program, several of which have already been implemented. Other notable Get Fit Kauai endeavors include organizing Worksite Wellness programs for 25 businesses on Kauai, organizing lunch-timewalks in Lihue, and the annual Mayor-a-Thon that celebrates Ke Ala Hele Makalae a built environment that supports active living!

    The National Physical Activity Plan and Kauais elected officials recog-nized the Get Fit Kauai coalitions achievements underBev Brodys leader-ship.

    Do you know what The Kite Runner author Kahled Husseini, Depart-ment of Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, U.S. Army Medal of Honor recipient Sgt. Peter Lemon, actor Andy Garcia, Nobel Peace Prize Winner Elie Wiesel and astronaut and rocket scientist Franklin Chang Diaz have in common besides being American citizens? Theyre a few of the many recipients of the Outstanding American by Choice award, given annually by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to those who were not born in this country, but who chose to become American citizens. Yes, each of these outstanding Americans is an immigrant.

    Without immigration, we would not have the country we have to-day. Just imagine the U.S. without the likes of Albert Einstein or Nikola Tesla. But those are just a couple of geniuses. This nation is made of everyone who lives here, including natural-born citizens, immigrants who have been granted legal residency or American citizenship as well as those who are still illegally living here. There, I said it, illegally. Ive heard people say they dont have a problem with legal immi-grants, but with those who are illegal. So, if the problem is with illegal immigrants, lets legalize their status, simple as that. President Barack Obama whose Kenyan-born father was forced

    Outstanding HumansBy Lo Azambuja

    to leave the country in 1964 is not opening the borders to illegal im-migration. Instead, he is offering a chance to those who have already been here to go through a legal process, which includes a series of conditions, to attain legal status. The discussion on whether legalizing illegal immigrants would tip the scale toward either a deficit or a surplus in government is as much a moral issue as it is a social and economic one. Economically speaking, one of the first studies on the subject, re-leased in 2004 (and likely outdated) by the Center for Immigration Studies, concluded government costs would increase dramatically because unskilled immigrants with legal status what most illegal aliens would become can access government programs, but still tend to make very modest tax payments. However, looking at the issue as a social one, deporting all illegal immigrants would have a drastic effect. Who would work for such low wages? Ive witnessed with my own eyes entire upscale neigh-borhoods in the West Coast being built by illegal immigrants, mostly Mexicans. Ive also witnessed many small businesses on the Mainland, from flower shops and pizza joints to restaurants and large stadium con-cessions, from landscaping sites to boat maintenance and marina upkeep, largely dependent on illegal immigrant labor. Deport everyone and I doubt we would have enough workforce willing to fill all those jobs. On the moral side, should we keep illegal immigrants as poor and dumb as we can, all for the sake of government surplus? Ive heard people say we should deny schooling to American-born children whose parents are illegal. So, should we deny those children natu-ral-born American citizens a right to become better citizens based on choices made by someone else, their parents? Its just as bad and revolting as racism. And going full-circle to economics, keeping the population dumb and poor will only result in a country dumb and poor in no time. What is really sad is that if we look at the broader picture, we are all prisoners of imaginary lines. We should be able to enjoy our planet Earth, its natural beauty and diversity of cultures, regardless of our re-ligious beliefs, skin color, language or fictional lines drawn to separate us from each other. One small step toward becoming outstanding Americans ourselves is to support Obamas immigration reform, which is not perfect but is a starting point. Maybe one day we all will become outstanding humans, citizens of planet Earth.

    Editors Notes

  • It was like a mini county government, they had to take care of their own plumbing, electricity, infrastructure, making roads, trains, machines, she said. In the early days, Chris Faye said, there was no Kekaha Town there was no water there. The nearest village was Pokii, which rested on the foothills of the mountains, where water was available. There were also other villages along those foothills. And there was Mana, an old Hawaiian village near Polihale, turned into a camp. Over the years, Mana Camp developed into what Wich-man called a full giant-little-city. At one point, Chris Faye said, there were 3,000 people living in Mana. There was a movie theater, a swim-ming pool named after a hometown boy who died in the war, schools, stores and many homes. In 1989, Mana Camp was shut down for good, and the last two residents left. Chris Faye said many factors contributed to the clo-sure: Tight government control of sugar prices, rising expenses, labor unions, field mechanization and stricter health regulations. Mike Faye moved six or seven structures including the store, the school and H.P. Fayes original home to what now is the Waimea Plantation Cottages, a charming resort made entirely of restored plantation homes. Those structures are still a gathering place for re-unions for former planatation workers and their families. The old Mana site is now flattened and covered by brush. Gone too are the days when Kauais main corporations were local. Everybody made money off the sugar plantations, Chris Faye said. All the sugar was owned by Hawaii corporations, all the money stayed in Hawaii. But the plantations left a living legacy. Commercial success meant bringing more foreign workers, and that was the basis of our popula-tion, Stewart said. I dont know, if we had never had sugar plantations, what the population would be like or what the island would be like, she said.

    Page 8

    Last month, the Kauai Historical Society unveiled a colossal project that took nearly 15 years: The preservation and cataloguing of about 1,000 maps and roughly five tons of ledgers corresponding to more than a century of operations at the former Kekaha Sugar Co. Its like a sampling of the plantation culture and history that was on this island, KHS consultant Donna Stewart said of the project. The maps show in great detail how the Westsides wetlands be-came plantation fields, how those fields changed over a century, the location of irrigation ditches and drainage pumps, and where planta-tion camps were built. A 10-foot-long by 8-foot-wide map reveals the wetlands that once covered much of the land between Waimea and Polihale, former KHS President Randy Wichman said. Those were the largest wetlands in the entire Pacific. Its the only map Ive ever seen of the wetlands, he said. The ledgers recorded the plantation workers daily life in the camps, such as who bought what at the stores, how much the workers got paid, which days they worked and who got hurt. Some even have passports with photos. In a way, this whole collection is to reconnect the generations, Wichman said. In November 1999, after more than a century in operation, Kekaha Sugar folded. In 2000, Chris Faye, great-granddaughter of the com-panys founder, Hans Peter Faye, saved some records from going to the trash. But there was a lot more than what she could keep, so she called KHS Executive Director Mary Requilman. Wichman said it took him and a team of volunteers three days to retrieve hundreds of maps and records spread all over the floor of the companys main building, and tons of ledgers and documents upstairs and in the attic. Author and KHS member Pat Griffin was mostly responsible for cataloguing the ledgers years ago, according to Stewart.

    Legacy of Kekaha Sugar Co. Lives OnBy Lo Azambuja

    Then in 2010, Malina Pereza put together a system and a volunteer team to catalog the maps. In June 2014, Pereza lost a battle to leuke-mia, at 26 years old. Marianne Buley, who had been trained by Pereza, finished the project. She left a legacy for the Historical Society and the people of Kauai, Requilman said of Pereza. What shes done for us will live on forever. The seed that sprouted into Kekaha Sugar Co. was planted in 1880

    by 21-year-old Norway immigrant Hans Peter Faye. Once on Kauai, he founded H.P. Faye & Co. sugar plantation by securing a loan from Paul Is-enberg and leasing lands in Mana from his uncle, Valdemar Knudsen. In 1898, H.P. Faye helped to merge three sugar companies into Kekaha Sugar Co., operating on lands leased from the government. By the late 1930s, those lands were considered the most valu-able asset of the former Territory of Hawaii, said Mike Faye, H.P. Fayes grandson. At the height of their employment, Kekaha Sugar had about 2,000 workers, according to Mike Faye. By comparison, the nearby Waimea Planta-tion had somewhere between 200 and 250 work-ers. Over the decades, they employed thousands of workers and built plantation camps, the Kekaha Mill, the 27-mile Kekaha Ditch and the 21-mile Kokee Ditch, among many accomplishments. The plantations were responsible for a lot of the infra-structure in Hawaii, Chris Faye said.

    Malina Perezas family holds a 1913 Kekaha Sugar Co. map in the Historic County Building in Lihue in March. Pereza spearheaded the preservation and cataloguing of hundreds of maps before losing a battle to leukemia last June, at 26 years old.

    After a few years working at a hospital, a registered nurse wanted to do something different, something not many on Kauai were doing. But she still wanted to use her hard-earned degree. In May 2014, Eden Noble officially opened Haven Aesthetics, a dis-crete place where men and women can take a few years and hair off their backs, making them feel younger and increasing their self-esteem.

    My business is a little medical boutique that offers Laser hair re-moval, Intense Light Photo facials, attacks sun damage, rosacea, red-ness, it helps fine-line wrinkles and stimulates collagen, said Noble, adding she also applies Botox, which is for fine lines and wrinkles, dermal

    fillers for deeper lines and medical-grade chemical fills. Basically, I take care of wrinkles and hair, she said. When Haven Aesthetics first opened, it included a full medical spa with contracted masseuses and other professionals. Last December, Noble moved the business from the North Shore to Kapaa, across the street from Cost-U-Less, and simplified everything. Its just me now, she said. The result is a nice and quaint place with better customer service. Many clients dont want others to know about the services theyre getting, so Noble said she keeps patient confidentiality and usually schedules appointments far enough to

    A Safe Haven to Pursuit Beauty and YouthBy Lo Azambuja avoid crossover in the waiting room.

    Thats my goal, I want them to feel safe, more of a one-on-one thing, she said of her clients. And its not just for women. Quite a few of Nobles clients are men, who come in to have back or chest hair removed by Laser, one of most popular services, or to have Botox applications to relax lines in their foreheads or between their eyebrows. Another popular service is treatment with Intense Pulse Light, which goes beneath the skins surface to correct pigmentation issues and to damage cells that can cause cancer. IPL also stimulates colla-gen, targets sun damage, acne, ageing and rosacea. If theres anything that might be a bigger deal, like a pre-cancer, I always recommend them to see a dermatologist first, so we are not masking anything that could be a bigger issue in the long run, Noble said. To complement her treatments, Haven Aesthetics carries a good, universal skincare line of products, she said. I dont like to go with a lot of complicated things, Noble said. I like to do things that are very result-driven, so nothing smells really fluffy, nothing is overly feminine, I want things that will appeal both to men and women. Many of those products are also preventive care, such as sunscreen, an essential component of skincare. Haven Aesthetics doesnt take health insurance, but Noble said she tries to work with her clients to stay within their budgets. I want this to be accessible to everybody, she said.

    Haven Aesthetics is at 4520 Akia Rd., across the street from Cost U Less in Kapaa. Visit www.islandlaserskincare.com or call 346-7762 for more information.

    the roofing materials are un-contaminated), and if you are in low-lying area it can avoid the saltwater intrusion issue in wells. It even works in areas of lower rainfall like the Westside. Climate change spells a very uncertain future for freshwater resources in Hawaii. We may already be experiencing its ef-fects as evidenced by the historic downward trends in rainfall, streamflow, and longer drought conditions (see seagrant.soest.hawaii.edu/sites/default/files/publications/smfinal-hawaiicli-matechange.pdf). Predicting the future is com-plicated due to the complex and variable nature of rainfall over each island. A lot of modeling research is being undertaken in academia but it lacks concrete conclusions about future condi-tions. This uncertainty is enough to cause concern and an abundance of caution when using ground-water resources. The more I learn about rainwater catchment, the more it feels like a no-brainer.

    WHAT THE SOLAR GUYS

    MAY NOT TELL YOUNot everyone needs a $25,000 photovoltaic system.

    Installing a solar water heater is the cheapest,easiest way for most Kauai households to save atleast 40 percent on their electric bill.

    Water heaters use more electricity than any otherappliance. Using the sun to heat water can save you$80 to $100 a month, maybe more, depending on thesize of your family.

    Right now, KIUC is offering a $1,000 rebate towardthe purchase and installation of a solar water heater.With the rebate and state and federal tax credits, yourfinal cost could be less than $2,000.

    Do the math yourself and see how much money youcan save just by using a solar water heaterunlessyoure in a big rush to spend $25,000.

    Call 246.4300 or go to www.kiuc.coop for a list ofapproved contractors and information about how youcan start saving.

    Lately, Ive been having a lot of conversations about water. In California, where I lived before moving here three years ago, water scarcity is common. My friends are often under water restrictions due to drought, and there are all kinds of crazy schemes to import water to hy-drate Los Angeles or the Central Valley agricultural areas that grow water-hungry crops. But here on Kauai, I cant even count how many times Ive heard that it is the wettest place on Earth. Actually though, its not so simple. The 5,148-foot summit of Mount Waialeale gets a whop-ping mean annual rainfall of 430 inches. But extending that state-ment to the whole of the island,

    assuming there is plenty water for humans and the environ-ment, is almost certainly incor-rect. The water that comes out of our tap comes from wells and tunnels that store groundwater. The availability of the rainwa-ter on top of mountains to the ground, i.e. groundwater re-charge, depends on numerous factors. Some of the rainwater that falls on the land runs off into the ocean via streams, while the remainder percolates into the soil to recharge the aquifer. How much is recharged depends on the evapotranspiration rate in the soil. If rainfall is less fre-quent, evapotranspiration has more time to reduce soil mois-ture and even if you get a large rain event the volumes of re-charge to the underlying aquifer is less. Take the Lihue water basin, a 553-square-mile area that

    Harvesting Rainwater for a More Sustainable KauaiBy Ruby Pap is home to half of

    Kauais population and includes Waia-leale and numerous streams extending from the Wailua River to Huleia Stream. Ac-cording to a 2005 United States Geologic Service re-port, well water levels and productivity have shown a marked decline since the 1980s. This has raised con-cerns about the future reli-ability of groundwater sources. The reason for these declines appear to be three-fold: (1) Increases in groundwa-ter development; (2) decreases in irrigation when the sugar plantations closed, this artificial recharge essentially ceased; and (3) decreased rainfall annual rainfall measured at rain gauges at the Mount Waialeale and Lihue Airport have been below average at times, corresponding with observed declines in the wells. One alternative to using wells is rainwater catchment, whereby existing roofs and gutters are used to gather rainwater, which is stored in tanks. It is used for potable and non-potable in-home use, livestock, irrigation, wildlife, firefighting or to refill aquifers. Rainwater catchment is popping up all over the Mainland and has been common place for quite some time in other coun-tries, such as Australia. According to Tim Pope, from the American Rainwater Catch-ment Systems Association, the most sincere form of returning water to the aquifer is to not take it out in the first place. It also helps solve water quality issues because you are har-vesting water out of the sky instead of the ground (assuming

    Happy Science

    Life force is an energy that runs through all things. Here in Hawaii, we call this mana. In the yoga world, the term is prana. This supernatural gift of vibrancy and power keeps us youthful, optimistic and attractive in many ways. There are many ways to activate greater vitality and energy. Let me share a secret from my daily routine. It works for me and for my clients, so I know it will work for you. Youll be able to transform sluggishness and dullness into creative flow, to transform pain caused by sitting for long periods into more ease and comfort. This tip is so simple that some people disregard it completely,

    which is sad because they miss out on increased circulation, a leaner physique, more energy and

    a more optimistic being Our bodies were designed to move and to be free. When we let them move throughout the day, we increase our vitality, and mana flows through us effortlessly. Our heart, our body and our emotional body are connected. So, I inspire you to get your heart rate fluctuating throughout the day. I am not talking about getting in your daily workout, although you should be doing this. If the only time you move your body is when you workout, and the rest of the time you are sitting, you are not practicing this tip. Here are a few ways to get your body moving when you may be at a flat line:

    Get off you okole when youre sitting at the computer for long periods and do some jumping jacks. Or get up often and for a drink of water.

    Do lunges down your hallway instead of walking.

    Glow with Greater Vitality and EnergyBy Samantha Fox Olson

    Dance, baby dance! Get up from your seat and dance. Play with children! Sprint around chasing your child. Go outside

    and play! Do small sessions on a trampoline to break up computer time. Do random handstands at the wall. After riding in your car for a bit, park at the back of the parking

    lot and walk. Take the stairs. Jog to your mailbox. Sprint back. Do some squats while waiting for your coffee to brew.

    These arent things that take a lot of time, but when implemented into your daily routine, you will be gifting you body with goodness!FIT

    Edna Ray and Cornelia Works welcome the public to admire quilts made by local artists at the Annual Quilt Show at Kukui Grove Center in Lihue. The works ranged from large to small, hand-sewn to machine-sewn and embroidered. Weve had a really good turnout this year, Edna said of the event hosted by the Kauai Society of Artists and sponsored by Kauai Quilt Guild, No Nene Quilters, Kapaia Stitchery, Singer Discount Fabric and Vickys Fabric. Cornelia, on the right, said her sister is selling a quilt at the Relay for Life event in Hanapepe in April to raise funds for the American Cancer Association.

    The Westside is the best side to watch the sunset on Kauai. It lingers momentarily over the forbidden isle of Niihau before dropping behind the ocean.

    James Rack and his niece James Mead, of Wawautosa, Wis., enjoy a cool morning doing pencil sketches of the Kilauea lighthouse. They share a name as well as an artistic talent. Uncle Jimmy, a retired artist who paints realistic landscapes, spends about a quarter of each year on the islands. He attended the University of Hawaii where he met fellow painter and Kauai resident Gary Smith. The two have been friends for many decades. I saw eight or nine nene geese fly by, Jimmy said. They came very close to me and looked me right in the eye. Have you ever heard of anything like that?"

    The Hanapepe Swinging Bridge hovers over the river on a hot afternoon in March. The bridge provides a quiet place to look out over the town. A sign up top says No Diving Off Bridge, with an added reminder to No Talk Heavy.

    Theo, Nancy and Chip Downes-LeGuin dry off after a swim at Kee Beach, at the end of the road on Kauais North Shore. It was a no-snorkeling day there due to the high surf. The Downes-LeGuin family, from Portland, Ore. say they are used to rain. Chip said the trip, so far, had been wet but good. They werent affected by the no-snorkeling rule, as they only wanted to swim a bit. The sand was hot on the beach, Nancy said. It felt good in the water. Well play more when the sun is out. The crew stopped at the Hanalei Farmers Market for some fruits and veggies on the way to Anini Beach Park, where they were staying. Chip, a second-grade student who loves to read, said he and his parents were going to check out some books at the Princeville Library before heading back to Anini. The Kapaa Skate Park in Old Kapaa Town is where skaters practice

    their passion. Levi from Canada does an aerial maneuver in the bowl.

    Kau Kau DelightsTiki TacosThe first time I went to Tiki Tacos in Kapaa was six months ago, after it had been opened for two and a half years. Im not sure if it was because I wanted to make up for lost time or because I fell in love with the food, but I returned for the next three consecutive days. We serve specialty tacos, everything handmade and homemade, said Tiki Tacos owner Bard Widmer, adding most of his ingredients come from local producers. Tiki Tacos celebrated its third anniversary in March. In its short existence, it has gathered quite a following among locals and visitors, attracted by the intense flavor of their tacos and ridiculously low prices starting as low as $5 for a meal-size taco. The menu has quite an array of choices, from locally caught fish and Kauai grass-fed beef, lamb and pork supplied by Eastside rancher Willie Sanchez to chicken, tofu or roasted vegetables, which is my favorite. Every taco has three different levels: standard, spicy or marinated ingredients. Customers have a choice of white tortilla or certified non-GMO, organic blue corn tortilla. Both are handmade. For an additional buck, you can have a large serving of guacamole or salsa added to your taco. All the sauces are handmade by Tiki herself, Bards wife. Bard said everyone thinks the name Tiki has a Hawaiian background, but it is actually his wifes nickname since she was a young girl in Acapulco, Mexico. On weekends, Tiki Tacos serves Mexican Tamales, stuffed with a choice of chicken, pork or jalapeno and cheese. Tiki Tacos is at 4-971 Kuhio Hwy, and can be reached at 823-8226. Theyre open everyday from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.

    I cant sing. I cant dance. I hated my piano lessons. I love music. I remember sitting on the front steps of my house at 69-30 179th street in Queens, New York. A palm-size, turquoise transistor radio magically broadcasting the most important sounds I had ever heard and doing it without being plugged into the wall. As a young boy, it was a time of magic, a time to begin owning my independence. And

    for many of us, the fact that our par-ents didnt like those sounds drove us closer to them. I dont know how many times a song has taken me over until it ended. Even today, when you can start and stop any song ever recorded, I still lis-ten with reverence to those thousands of special songs without interrupt-ing them. Clapton,

    Music Never Lets You DownBy Larry Feinstein

    Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler and Mumford and Sons are just a few of my attention-stealers. I was one of those mesmerized youngsters who couldnt wait to see Elvis on the Ed Sullivan show. Wouldnt you know it? Our Dumont TV crapped out about 20 seconds into his first song and I went screaming over to my neighbors house in my underwear to watch him, surprised they only shot him from the waist up and too young to understand the

    swivel hips controversy. When it was still OK for 12-year-olds to take the subway to the city, I went to the Brooklyn Paramount. I waited for hours in the winter cold to see Allan Freeds Jubilee and acts like Chuck Berry and Fats Domino. Since then, there have been too many concerts to remember, but the highlights have to be seeing The Beatles in Shea Stadium and The Concert for Bangladesh in Madison Square Garden, organized by George Harrison to help the victims in Bangladesh. In 1986, I left New York City and drove to northern New Mexico to begin a new life. I had a ghetto blaster on the passenger seat, with headphones fitting snuggly over my NY Yankee baseball cap. Silence would have been a cruel accompaniment on this journey of discovery. Legend by Bob Marley, Graceland by Paul Simon and The Way It Is by Bruce Hornsby and the Range were my favorites, out of a boxful of

    cassettes. There is still nothing like driving on a sunny day, window open, an elbow draped over the door, listening to the Eagles. Professionally, I have had some incredible experiences around music. Working in the advertising business in NYC, I was there for the introduction and launch of MTV. I even tried to pull off a reunion of the Beatles by putting on a global concert at the UN and got as far as a meeting. One of my last jobs was selling advertising time in the TV version of Casey Kasems Americas Top Ten. My relationship with music got even more exciting in New Mexico. In 1989, I promoted a major summer concert series called Music in the Pines, featuring Bonnie Raitt, Etta James and Bruce Hornsby, among others. I was hired to help launch a fledgling British record label called Run River Records. The best musical experience of all was putting a radio station on the air called Radio Free Santa Fe. I had a great conversation with Ron Middag of Shaka Rocks 103.1FM. He was a part of Rock n Roll history and his passion is unabated. He misses the fire that birthed the music from the sixties and the passion of the Vietnam upheaval. You can listen to him on my blog, Mind and the Motorcycle. Music is a language that requires no translation. It will also keep changing as the world it inhabits keeps changing. Turn it up!

    Understanding Pain An estimated 100 million people in the United States suffer from pain, mostly in the form of back pain, severe headaches, or arthritis . This means pain affects more lives than those affected by heart disease, cancer, and diabetes combined . However, many patients with chronic pain still have difficulty finding information about their condition and treatment options and getting the care they need .

    There are many different causes and kinds of pain . Pain can be caused by injury, illness, sickness, disease or surgery . Pain can slow healing and keep you from being active . For patients with chronic pain, these pain signals can remain long after an injury has healed, or begin for seemingly no reason at all .

    Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for longer than six months . For some patients, it can last much longer . Acute pain is caused by a health problem or injury, such as arthritis or a shoulder strain, and usually goes away when the cause is treated . Chronic pain can also be caused by a health problem or injury, but it can also exist without a clear cause . In both cases, chronic pain can be an isolating and extremely difficult experience for patients, their loved ones and families .

    There are many ways to manage pain . A pain specialist can help you determine what treatment, or combination of treatments, might be best for you . The field of pain management has rapidly evolved in recent years . Treatment options available include physical therapy, pain medication, nerve blocks or injections, implanted medical devices that deliver medicine or electrical stimulation to the affected areas, and, as a last resort, other spinal surgeries and interventions .

    If you are suffering from chronic pain, you have a right to have your symptoms evaluated and treated as effectively as possible . With the support of an experienced pain management specialist, you dont have to live with the pain alone .

    Dr. Eric Grigsby opened the Spine and Pain Center of Kauai last year to address the needs of chronic pain patients, their loved ones and families in our community. He has more than two decades of experience as a clinician, researcher, and advocate for patients with chronic pain. Grigsby and his team offer treatment and support for those suffering from chronic pain while working closely with Wilcox Memorial Hospital, where he performs outpatient surgical procedures.
