Waiahole water talk on 'Dialog'

Hawaii Public Television's "Dialog" examines the issue of water distribution in "Where the Water Flows," 8 p.m. today on KHET/PBS.

Viewers are invited to telephone their comments and questions during the live program by calling 973-1000. Neighbor island viewers may call collect.

Program host Lynne Waters will lead a panel discussing the controversy over conflicting claims to the Windward Oahu water carried in the Waiahole Ditch and tunnel system to irrigate Leeward agricultural lands. Windward Oahu residents seek a larger share of that water to replenish Windward streams.

The program will be simulcast on Hawaii Public Radio, KIFO-AM 1380. The tape of the show will be rebroadcast at noon tomorrow.

Christmas greenery sale

Sounds crazy, but the Mental Health Association in Hawaii is offering Christmas in August. Actually, it's the group's 17th annual Christmas Tree Sale.

Order a sheared Douglas fir for $39 to $60, a tabletop tree for $19 or an evergreen, pine cone and juniper berry wreath for $26 now and pick it up on Dec. 6 at Central Intermediate School or Pearl City Elementary School.

Order forms are available from the Mental Health Association, 200 N. Vineyard Boulevard, No.300, Honolulu, HI 96817. Information: 521-1846.

Auction for HPR

Selling recorded music in a silent auction is fairly ironic. But you can make all the noise you want, actually, at Hawaii Public Radio's annual "Almost New Record Sale and Silent Auction," running 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 3, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 4 and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 5 in the meeting rooms above Coffeeworks at Ward Warehouse.

The event features thousands of records, CDs and cassette tapes; some new, others used; plus books, videotapes, magazines, comics, memorabilia and stereo equipment. Average prices for used cassettes is $1, records $2 and CDs $5.

Highly collectible recordings will be offered in the silent auction.

Admission to the sale is $3, and includes a coupon for two free records.

Information: 955-8821.

Tool for schools

Music and fashion -- or is it fashion and music? -- take over Aloha Tower Marketplace on the cusp of Labor Day weekend. The event is a fund-raising venture for schools, which can keep the proceeds from selling school logo items, supplies and food. Called "Keeping Unity and Peace In the Streets," the admission-free affair runs "all day" Thursday through Saturday, says promoter Maurice Starr.

According to Starr, who is producing the event with Unity House, celebrities and acts appearing include Fabio, Iron Butterfly, Shades, Forte, Jon B., Heat Wave, Rose Royce, Makaha Sons, Kapena and the Oakland Raiderettes, plus marching bands from various high schools.

Information: 955-9095.
