Spectrum OC16 August Spotlights

Let’s Kick It

The Prep Football season is finally here! Our 31st season of Hawaii
High School Sports is underway and we’re stoked to cover the very best
from around the state. As we gear up for another year on the gridiron, here’s
a peak at a couple notable football games we have on Spectrum OC16.

AUGUST 9 – MILILANI vs CAMPBELL

Two squads that like to light up the scoreboard meet in game 1
of the regular season. Both are looking to fill positions under center
with graduating quarterbacks Dillon Gabriel (Mililani) and, Krenston Kaipo
and Kaniala Kalaola (Campbell). In comes two young QBs in Brendyn
Agbayani (JR) for the Trojans and Blaine Hipa (SO) for the Sabers.
Both have shown great promise this summer, with strong arms and smart
decision making. It’ll come down to both offensive lines to determine
how successful each will be this season. Don’t be surprised though
if these two meet in the OIA final.

SEPTEMBER 14 – KAHUKU vs SAINT LOUIS

It’s one of the most fierce and passionate rivalries the state
has ever seen. Perennial powers Kahuku and Saint Louis will tangle
at Aloha Stadium in mid-September. Saint Louis, the three-time defending
Division 1 – Open champions, swept the Red Raiders last year with
a stout defense led by seniors Jordan Botelho (Notre Dame
commit) and Nick Herbig (Wisconsin commit).

Kahuku reached as far as the D1-Open semifinals a year ago and
finished 2018 with a 7-5 record. Returning is quarterback Robbie
Sauvao and linebacker Kana Fonoimoana-Vaomu. Both bring leadership
and stability on offense and defensive, respectively. The big question mark
is at running back. Can the Red Raiders find a steady presence on
the ground to be effective in a tough division? Regardless of personnel
for both teams, it’s Kahuku versus Saint Louis. And whenever they
square off, something special’s is going to happen.

That’s just a small taste of what’s to come this year. For more info

Painting In Paradise
Celebrating Hawaii Through Art

Patrick Ching shooting on location

Patrick Ching is a talented artist with a deep love for the ‘aina and all
of its inhabitants.  His Spectrum OC16 show, “Painting in Paradise”,
teaches viewers how to draw and paint beautiful Hawaiian landscapes,
plants and wildlife. Along the way, Patrick shares the fascinating
history and background of each episode’s subjects.

His artistic abilities took root at an early age. In kindergarten,
his father taught him how to sketch horses. As Patrick developed
a knack for drawing, his peers at school noticed how good he was
and asked him to draw horses for them. This was just the beginning
of his lifelong journey in art and conservation. At sixteen,
while taking part in a
wilderness program for teens, he saw his
first Hawaiian hawks in Pololu Valley on Hawaii Island. This life-changing
experience inspired him to dedicate his life to saving native Hawaiian
animals through his art.

In addition to his works of art, Patrick’s commitment to Hawaii’s wildlife
led him to
serve as a ranger with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
at Kilauea lighthouse on Kauai. He also worked with NOAA and the
National Marine Fisheries Service on the remote North Western Hawaiian
Islands performing census work and observing the behaviors of monk seals,
sea turtles and seabirds. 

Before launching the show in 2016, Patrick appeared in a series
of educational videos that were produced at Kalani High School that
taught school children how to draw animals. The videos aired for 25 years
and are still remembered by many students who watched them. Now, many years
later, Patrick continues to share his love of art and Hawaii’s animals
as he teaches a new generation of viewers the joys of drawing and
painting our island’s wildlife. He shares: “My mission in life is to help
people to express their inner artist, and in doing so, make the world a
more beautiful place.”
