Millennium Moments

Millennium special

Original fund-raiser
hatched in 1950s

Anyone who's grown up here has probably sold it as a fund- raiser, or been seduced by its flaming aroma in a supermarket parking lot.

Huli-Huli Chicken.

A tasty local flavor, the marinated, barbecued chicken first became popular in the late 1950s, says "Firsts and Almost Firsts in Hawaii" by Robert C. Schmitt.

The magic recipe came together when Ernie Morgado, who co-founded Pacific Poultry in 1955, was looking to feed some farmers after a meeting. Using a special sauce from his mother, Morgado and partner Mike Asagi cooked up the poultry treat for the group, says Schmitt.

Its popularity spurred Morgado to market the "Huli-Huli Chicken" via presales by schools and charities. The name became a trademark when Morgado registered it with the Territory of Hawaii in 1958 and with the U.S. government in 1965.


Library exhibit shows
state’s dirty laundry of
domestic violence

Shirts will hang on a laundry line in the middle of the Honolulu State Library -- not as someone else's dirty laundry, but the state's.

It's the dirty laundry of domestic violence. The shirts, illustrated by women victims and their children, were expected to be aired today in an art display at the library. They'll be shown through the month.

"There is a stigma to domestic violence, for sure," said Carol Gaylord, with the Domestic Violence Clearinghouse & Legal Hotline. "There's confusion between torment and terror. People feel it's just the psychological angst in a marriage. But we're talking about terror from a predator within the house."

The shirts, called the 1999 Clothesline Project Hawaii, represent something personal from the home to honor the victims of domestic violence.

One of the T-shirts done by a child says, "Hugs not slugs." Another abstract painted shirt was done by a 4-year-old.

The stigma of domestic violence keeps shelters and organizations helping victims constantly underfunded, Gaylord said. The number of victims staying at Child and Family Service's two Oahu shelters has grown by 21 percent since 1994. Yet funding has decreased from $708,211 to $495,292 for the year 2000.

Robbery charges pending in theft at Waikiki store

Armed robbery and criminal property damage charges are pending against a 37-year-old man who allegedly held up a Waikiki merchant and threw a Molotov cocktail into the store yesterday.

With the assistance of security and a witness, the suspect was arrested by police at 10:34 p.m., about 21 minutes after the robbery at Royal Hawaiian Avenue and Lauula Way was reported.

A security officer chased him as he fled from the store, and pulled off the suspect's Halloween mask. But the suspect broke free and escaped. A witness followed him and notified police of his whereabouts. The man was arrested after being identified by the security guard and witness.
