JERVIS, STENDER FLAG
Two trustees say the $40,000-a-month job
was not presented to the board
By Rick Daysog, Star-Bulletin
Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate trustees Gerard Jervis and Oswald Stender are questioning a campus security contract with a company headed by Big Island businessman Larry Mehau.
In court papers filed yesterday, Jervis and Stender said the security contract with Hawaii Protective Association Ltd. was never presented to the board for discussion or approval before it went into effect about July 1996.
The nonbid security contract for Kamehameha School's entry gates, which sources place at $40,000 a month, is one of several deals and policy decisions Stender and Jervis said were kept from them by trustees Richard Wong, Henry Peters and Lokelani Lindsey. Besides the security contract, Jervis and Stender allege:
The estate made substantial payments for a collection of Hawaiiana known as the Van Dyke collection, without conducting an inventory or appraisal.
Trustee Lokelani Lindsey required Hawaiian language teachers at Kamehameha Schools to teach only "traditional" Hawaiian words, or words that were in existence during the era of the estate's founder, Bernice Pauahi Bishop.
Trustee Richard Wong abruptly canceled informal "talk story" meetings between trustees and Kamehameha Schools' students, alumni and faculty regarding school-related issues.
Circuit Judge Colleen Hirai has set a Jan. 9 hearing date for the motion by Jervis and Stender. An estate spokesman had no comment, and Lindsey could not be reached for a response.
"A trustee who fails to keep his co-trustees so informed breaches the trust," Stender and Jervis said. "All trustees, whether in the majority or the minority, must be given notice and an opportunity to be heard on all significant issues regarding the administration of the trust."
Randall Roth, local trust expert and University of Hawaii law professor, said it would be a breach of a trustee's fiduciary duties if he or she kept other trustees from taking part in estate policy decisions.
Even if the trustees represent a minority view in the board room, they must be able to voice their opinions on a trust's policies, said Roth, one of the five authors of the "Broken Trust" article that criticized trustees' management of the multibillion estate.
Stender, in an affidavit, said he's never seen a written contract with Hawaii Protective Association and that details of an agreement are not listed in any minutes of trustees' weekly board meetings.
Mehau told the Star-Bulletin yesterday he is disappointed with the criticism of his company's contract to handle the gate security. Mehau said he was approached last year by Kamehameha Schools President Michael Chun and longtime friend and school Vice President Rockne Freitas about conducting the security work for the entire Kapalama Heights campus.
But after Stender criticized the contract, Mehau said, he only got the security contract for Kamehameha Schools' main and mauka gates, which he called a "headache." Hawaii Protective guards have the thankless job of stopping and checking students, faculty and parents who come and go at the Kapalama Heights campus, he said. On-campus security is handled by Bishop Estate employees, he said.
Hawaii Protective Association previously had handled security for Bishop Estate's Hamakua lands, for about $31,000 a month during the estate's fiscal year 1996. That lapsed after the estate decided to lease its Hamakua properties.
Mehau said he sees no problem doing work with longtime friends such as Freitas or trustees Wong and Peters.
"Most of our security contracts are with friends who gave us business."

NEW DISCOVERY (05-26-08):
The Global Economy's Investment
Want to know a few of the results of the move towards the so-called "Global Economy" which has become the nirvana Corporate America seeks? Be very careful, you might not like what you find.
According to U.N. documents, 4 million women a year are sold into sexual slavery around the world. Understand, these documents aren't discussing some Mid- Eastern potentate's harem. What we're talking about is 500,000 women "imported" into Western Europe and 90,000 into Italy, alone. These women are kidnapped and sold into prostitution for the gratification of men like the late Larry Hilblom, the founder of DHL courier service. Hilblom, it should be added, also participated in the kidnapping and sales of many young women, as well.
The majority of these women, who are mostly just young girls, come from the countries once known as client states of the old Soviet Union, such as Albania and the Ukraine. In fact, the selling of girls for the sexual gratification of wealthy men has become a major export for many of the supposedly free nations from the former Soviet bloc.
Amazingly, many of these women are moved through our ally Israel. The reason Israel is a major center for these atrocities is that Israel has absolutely no laws against the sale or ownership of other humans. Now there is wonderful reason to continue our hundreds of billions of dollars in foreign aid to this moral back water of a country.
The main reason that these crimes can so easily occur is the demand by the world's corporations that there be few or no inspections at national borders and that, with corporations buying up governments just like ours at bargain prices, they own the decisions to investigate crimes and, of course, see no reason to investigate the very crimes they, themselves, are committing.
Now, of course, America is immune from these charges, aren't we. I mean, this is the country where politicians spend their entire careers shouting about their fairy tale world of "family values", right? Our government would immediately spring into action should even a hint of this crime appear within our borders, right?
Wrong, of course. Thai women were imported into the United States and forced into sexual slavery in New York, Houston and Toronto, according to stories in the LA Times, New York Times and Dallas Morning News.
How long will it take the corporate prostitutes in Washington, D.C., to even acknowledge these crimes? How many conservatives do you think are going to stand up in protest against these horrors against humanity? How many will demand hundreds of billions of dollars to fight these crimes against humanity? What is less than none?
Unless America wakes up to these violations against humanity and demands action from the blow hards in office, nothing, whatsoever, will ever happen. Why? Because the victims do not fall within the parameters these vile people respect. These are young girls from foreign countries that don't contribute to American political coffers, nor are they related to anyone who owns enough property to matter to American politicians. If they were all Republican, Christian, wealthy wives and daughters of campaign contributors then this would be a problem of cosmic proportion. They aren't, so the problem is ignored.
These crimes against women are only the most extreme examples of the damage that is being done to people all over the world in the name of corporate profits. Add in the disease ridden fruit coming into America from countries which have little in the way of health and safety laws and food covered with the pesticides that America banned so Corporate America sold its stock to the same Third World countries now supplying us with our daily fruits and vegetables and grains.
Consider the effects that corrupt rulers the world over have regarding the financial health of your retirement and investments and, if the idiots who hate government safety nets have their way, your Social Security. Consider the damage another episode like the Hunt brothers attempt to corner the silver market would have on America if it were done by a nation or groups of nations. Finally, consider the costs of a simple computer virus invading the systems which control what will be the world's financial institution.
You, as an individual, have absolutely nothing to gain in a global economy. In fact, you will be the loser if you continue to listen to the lies and do not begin fighting the mutation of your world into a world corporation where the wealthy would rule through unlimited economic power. As in all things, it is your choice but your inaction will affect billions of people for centuries to come.
