WAIANAE REP: So the people of Waianae gathered on the beach where Christopher Reuther from North Carolina was murdered and stated that this one incident does not reflect on the area. They are right... It's probably the other 396 violent incidents that occured that day... The message is pretty clear. If you are Haole, it's best to stay clear of the beaches in Waianae.

PEOPLE IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Jerome Williams: Prior to being taken in the first round of the 1999 draft, Williams had never been to the mainland before. Now, the 1999 Waipahu High Grad has worked his way into the starting pitching rotation for the San Francisco Giants. After being called up from the Minor League Fresno Grizzlies, where he played under Kalani High grad Len Sakata, Williams has compiled a 3-1 record with a 3.65 ERA.

Seen around his neck, is a puka-shell necklace that was given to Williams by his late mother, Deborah who died two years ago from breast cancer. Williams had buried the necklace near his mother's grave, but asked his brother to dig it up and send it to him when his old necklace broke. I guess Mrs. Williams was looking over her boy, because in only his sixth major league start, Jerome pitched a complete game shut-out.

The Giants had only called up Williams as an emergency starter, but it looks like he's there to stay. Williams looks to be an integral part of the first-place Giants, who hope to gain a repeat trip to the World Series. Who knows, maybe Jerome will join the likes of local-boys Sid Fernandez and Ron Darling as the only Hawaii natives to pitch in the World Series.

CASTLE PARK - Before there was the Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park, there was Castle Park. Located next to Aloha Stadium, it had the big castle with arcade games, two miniature golf courses, a batting cage, go-carts, bumper boats, and the water park. Tailgating at the stadium always meant a walk over to the park. For years, it was a favorite destination for school field trips and family fun. It wasn't all fun and games though. Every time it rained, the golf courses became flooded. Poor maintenance caused the water park to be shut down frequently due to bacterial infections. I guess that's why they paved Castle Park and put up a Big K-Mart.
