Living with Earthquakes on Hawaiian Volcanoes ~ March 27, 2017   Leave a comment

Living with Earthquakes on Hawaiian Volcanoes


Thousands of earthquakes occur in Hawai‘i each year; most are related to volcanic activity, but some are not. What’s the difference? In this presentation, Brian Shiro of the USGS Hawaiian Volcanic Observatory describes the different types of earthquake experienced in Hawai‘i, how seismologists monitor them, and how seismic data are used as a primary tool to forecast volcanic eruptions. 

Want to know more about our historic damaging earthquakes, seismic hazards in our State, and how we can prepare for the next Big One? Brian addresses these topics and more, including the new, low-cost technology allowing citizen scientists to record earthquake shaking and to participate in the process of earthquake monitoring! 

Expand your knowledge at either the afternoon or the evening presentation of this fascinating program on Monday, March 27.

Date: 3/27/2017 (Monday)

Location: Lyman Museum, 276 Haili St., Hilo, HI 96720

Hours: 3:00pm – 4:30pm

Cost/Cover: Free to Museum members, and $3.00 for nonmembers

Just Published: The Hawaiian Horse   Leave a comment

Just Published: The Hawaiian Horse


Last June we were treated to a sneak preview of The Hawaiian Horse, the latest in the remarkable series of Bergin volumes detailing an era in Hawai‘i’s history. Our whistles having been collectively wet, authors and veterinarians Dr. Billy Bergin and son Dr. Brady Bergin return this afternoon with a more detailed account of their just-published book. It’s a definitive history of the role of the horse in Hawai‘i from its arrival in 1803 through the social, agricultural, military, and sports fields over a span of two centuries. 

Celebrated are the men and women who have contributed to the horse’s importance in the era of royalty, sugar and pineapple times, two world wars, and the arenas of pa‘u, polo, racing, rodeo, dressage, and pleasure riding. Current issues such as overpopulation, humane care, and equine health are handled in sensitive but realistic terms as they apply to local as well as national venues.

Join us this Saturday as these knowledgeable vets and compelling storytellers describe the horse’s place in Hawai‘i’s future in prophetic, practical, and cautiously optimistic terms. Copies of this beautiful book will be available in the Museum Shop, and Drs. B and B will be happy to inscribe them.
Admission to these wonderful programs is free to Museum members, and $3.00 for nonmembers. 

Please support the Museum by becoming a member, and enjoy all Saigo Series programs, all year round, at no charge! 

Seating is limited; first come, first seated.

: Local + Community ~ Waikoloa Beach & Kings’ Golf Course   Leave a comment

           Waikoloa Beach & Kings’ Golf Course

🔸The Beach Course

Opened in 1981, the Robert Trent Jones II-designed Beach Course is Big Island Golf at its finest. A classic resort-style layout, it won’t beat you up with length, better players will appreciate the strategic shot values required, and everyone will thrill at its beauty. But what makes the Beach Course one of the most popular on Hawaii Island is the amazing views, particularly as players reach No. 7 tee box. The Pacific Ocean is straight before you, while lava fields border the fairway on the left and right. A good tee ball should find the wide fairway, but beware, the wind can blow harder here by the shoreline than elsewhere on the course, so aim wisely.

🔸Kings’ Course
Waikoloa Beach Resort Golf reaches a crescendo at the Kings’ Course, which delivers a memorable round from the first tee to the 18th green. It is a “player’s course” in the sense that low-handicappers can tee it up from 7,000-plus yards and have all the length and strategy they can handle; while mid- and high-handicap players can select a tee that will provide the same excitement and challenge, but at a length that suites their game. Designers Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish crafted a Scottish links-style layout at the Kings’ Course.

Hawaii Island golf doesn’t get any better than this!

22nd Annual Kona Brewers Festival    Leave a comment


The Kona Brewers Festival is back for the 22nd annual celebration, with festivities to commence on March 11th, 2017!  The highly anticipated Kona Brewers Festival is a community celebration and fundraiser benefiting Hawaii programs supporting environment, culture and youth. Craft Brewers partner with the best Island Chefs to offer the most innovative pairings in a sustainable community gathering at King Kamehameha’s Courtyard Kona Beach Hotel luau grounds in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

The festival indulges craft beer aficionados with 72 selections of ales and lagers served up with a wide variety of island-style cuisine from 36 Hawaii chefs. Breweries from Hawaii and the mainland US will each offer two types of craft brews, offering something for beer novice and connoisseurs alike. Top Chefs from some of the Big Island’s favorite restaurants will offer their best food pairings, ranging from fresh fish and seafood, vegan and vegetarian delights, smoked meats, deep fried avocados and tropical sweets. 


More than 600 volunteers carry the event, taking special care to use sustainable supplies like tealeaf plates and reusable and compostable goods. Good food, good beer, and good community is enjoyed Hawaii Style against a backdrop of ocean views, white sands, and passing canoes at the historic and important Kamakahonu Bay Beach.

Live music and entertainment include the must-see Trash Fashion Show, a performance that highlights creative fashions made entirely from recycled material. Festival volunteers divert over 90% of festival waste from landfill by transforming refuse into composted soil for local school gardens. The Kona Brewers Festival has raised awareness, visibility, and $965,000 for over 40 non-profit and community organizations supporting the well being of Hawaii Island.
