Kalihi church need not disclose its financesA state judge has denied a request that would have required a Kalihi church to give an accounting of its finances to a disgruntled member who has accused church leaders of mismanagement.
Circuit Judge Colleen Hirai said on Friday that Steve Crouch lacked legal standing to seek a court order requiring Apostolic Faith Church to provide a financial accounting.
He also lacked standing to seek ouster of the church's board of trustees, Hirai ruled.
Because the church is a charitable trust, the state, which oversees such trusts, has the authority to seek court action if it suspects there is a problem.
The attorney general's office recently asked the church to address the concerns raised by Crouch, but it has yet to decide whether to take action, Crouch's attorney told the judge.
Church leaders have denied any wrongdoing.
Aloha United Way boss announces retirementAloha United Way President and Chief Professional Officer Irving Lauber announced Friday he will retire Dec. 1 after 14 years, ending a 35-year career with the United Way.
The 62-year-old has held the position since August 1990. Lauber has served with four other local United Ways in New York, Texas, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Lauber is credited with expanding the AUW's role as fund-raiser to community builder in several efforts.
In 1990, AUW helped implement ASK-2000, an information and referral service, which it helped keep open after state funding was lost.

Susan Au Doyle will succeed Lauber effective Dec. 1. Doyle serves as AUW vice president and chief operating officer.
