BREAKING NEWS: SANTA LANDS ON KAANAPALI, LOSES CANOE FULL OF TOYS


KA’ANAPALI BEACH MAUI  HAWAII, Dec. 21–Santa Claus landed on Kaanapali Beach late this afternoon in a special sleigh outfitted for HAWAII (a canoe) but a heavy surf found toys tumbling into the sea. (continued below). Isanta 1

Just joking. Santa went to Hula Grill on a dry run, so t speak, on the way to a secret workshop on Haleakala Crater where he assembles toys for Hawaii.  His assistants are overfeeding the dolphins who will pull his sleigh over the pali (cliffs) through the warm Maui night so they will have plenty of energy to swoop from the volcano across  to West Maui where hundreds of Mainland kids await and locals. Watch for big report tomorrow in this space. By the way, Maui is his favorite worldwide stop. Since it is at the end of his journey, he discards the red suit for a red trunks so he can enjoy the beach for a few days. Kids are urged not to bother him because he will be on vacation.

INNOCENTS: JOY IS A MUSCLE: EXERCISE IT.



innocents A BEST bill close25400028LAHAINA, Dec. 15– A joyous Christmas pageant at Holy Innocents Church, the second oldest Episcopal Church in t he Hawaiian Islands, featured angels (carrying aluminum foil stars), trees (sprigs of green), the three wise men, the Christ child and mother. Rector Father Bill  Albinger  led off the pageant with his usual eloquence, noting, “Joy is a muscle. It needs to be exercised.

The sad part for Lahaina is that Father Bill is retiring and departing for the Mainland after nearly 10 years at the church at year-end. The pastor believes in celebrating Hawaiian culture at a church that is within eyesight of where King Kamehameha once lived and Queen Lili’oukalani visited. Father Bill struggled to learn Hawaiian and spoke the language at each service. A hui ho Father Bill. Looking forward to your future visits.                        Norm Bezane/VOICES OF MAUI TALK STORY, LLC photos. MORe TO  COME.
