Richard Torres back at Red Nation

Former Warrior defensive back Richard Torres will be an assistant coach at  his alma mater, Kahuku High,  this coming semester.

Torres completed his UH eligibility in December. He had turned down GA offers at Washington, Washington State and Wyoming to play for the Georgia Force. He was cut a couple of weeks ago. He will pursue other GA or playing opportunities next year.

* * * * *

Congratulations to Aaron Brown, a proud, new father.


Brown said he reports to the Rams’ training camp on Monday.

* * * * *

Linebacker Penitito Faalologo will grayshirt and join the Warriors in January.

Faalologo signed with UH in February 2011. But he remained in American Samoa because of a family emergency.

The Warriors were holding a spot — and scholarship — for him on their 2012 training-camp roster before it was decided he would delay enrolling for another semester.

    Very good to have a coach that will help sent the Kahuku players to UH. Torres was a real Warrior.

    So, father and son both coaching at Kahuku? Maybe, they will start a Torres dynasty there. Good luck and best wishes!

    I love my new Tom Tom gps. I drive around the neighborhood so I can hear it talk.

  16. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 7:40 am

    I’d hate to be at customer service when someone brings that (used) toilet seat back ’cause it stopped working! Fun idea, though.

  17. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 7:41 am

    Last Call: why do you prefer to hear a man’s voice instead of a female voice on your GPS?

  18. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 7:42 am

    WW: only you would think like that, Lol.

  19. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 7:43 am

    WW: actually, anyd customer service job sucks. That job is for the birds.

  20. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 7:44 am

    Gigi… I was a Buyer at Eagle Hardware in Waikele… and then a manager for a chain in Michigan called “Meijer”. If you only knew what people brought back for refunds or exchanges, and the condition those items are brought back in…

  21. Last Call July 19, 2012 7:44 am

    Gigi I don’t prefer the dudes voice ,I have the female voice.

  22. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 7:44 am

    my first encounter with a GPS was in Tokyo, when we visited in 2008. ALL of the taxi cabs had it.

  23. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 7:45 am

    Sometimes, customer service can’t (or don’t have the authority to) make the decision, so they gotta call for a manager.

  24. Shoko July 19, 2012 7:45 am

    The journey for Jeremy Lin is an interesting one. No scholarships out of H.S. to undrafted out of Harvard then to Golden State to D-league to NY to a three-year 25 million contract with Houston. Then you look at Jimmer Fredette and compare the both. Never know what can happen even if you start at the bottom. If that ain’t a success story, I don’t know what is.

  25. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 7:45 am

    WW: the best place is Costco, b/c they will refund the customer for ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING!!!

  26. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 7:46 am

    Last Call: if you have the female voice, why is it called Tom Tom?

  27. Last Call July 19, 2012 7:46 am

    Anyone going to this Downtown Athletic Club Pau Hana thing at the Hukilau tonight ?

    Everybody, eat and be merry at the CC today!!!

    Sorry I can’t attend.

  32. Stephen Tsai July 19, 2012 7:53 am

    Take the female voice. Guys don’t ask for directions.

  33. Stephen Tsai July 19, 2012 7:54 am

    Is Papajoe coming today?

  34. Shoko July 19, 2012 7:54 am

    In an airplane, there is a caution aural warning system to warn pilots of any malfunction while in flight. The voice was that of a women and would annoy pilots when it went off, hence the name it was given: Bitchen Betty. However, studies were done that indicated that pilots were more attune to a females voice than a males. Of course, this goes against my experience when my wife talks my ears off and I am able to tune her out.

  35. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 7:55 am

    Wait.. why would we need directions while seated on the throne?

  36. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 7:57 am

    LOL, Shoko! You get the selective voice blocker too? It’s a learned skill! Probably something to do with Darwinism and survival of the fittest…

  37. jimmy the lock July 19, 2012 7:59 am

    Yes, yes, ignorance is funny. lol

    Congrats to the parents. Go Aaron and family.

    Welcome home Richard.

  38. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 7:59 am

    So, the female voice going be complaining…

    “Sit down straight!”

    “You not aiming right!”

    “You miss, you going clean ’em yourself!”

    I wonder if it can be programmed to say whatevas? You know these inventions… gotta be user friendly nowadayz.

  39. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 8:01 am

    And den, going have one timer too, so no can sit too long.

    Da buggah going start shooting water so you get off. And one shield going seal da toilet unless you get up.

    At least da water going be warm!

  40. jimmy the lock July 19, 2012 8:02 am

    GPS? I just use Navigator on the cell phone. And it is a female voice. She needs to brush up on her pronunciation of Hawaiian street names.

    Well, if you get da seat, might want to consider putting da remote in one ziploc bag, and thumb tack ’em on da wall, so no fall in da toilet by accident.

  43. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 8:10 am

    I guess I am a true DINOSAUR, because I usually print out the directions to a place after googling it on the computer.

    Don’t have a smart phone nor a GPS.

  44. Stephen Tsai July 19, 2012 8:11 am


    True that. I’ve dropped pens in the toilet while doing crossword puzzles. Maybe I should use a No. 2 pencil.

  45. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 8:13 am

    ST: did you rinse the pen and leave it on the shelf to air dry?

  46. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 8:14 am

    ST: no brag! When I do crossword puzzles, I use a pencil so I can erase.

    Rob Spear, Idaho AD, tweets that he’s had talks with the Big Sky regarding a possible home for its non-football sports. This was confirmed by BS (Big Sky not B.S.) commish Doug Fullerton. Didn’t know AD’s tweet. Anyway, wonder where they expect to compete in football. Doubt independent as I don’t think they have a budget to support such a venture.

  55. WarriorNY July 19, 2012 8:39 am

    Hi all NYers

    Just quick reminder about a NY CC…

    If you all want some good Italian food served family style, come out to the NY Cattle Call.

    Where? Carmine’s in the theater district

    When? Saturday July 28 at 5:30 pm

    RSVP at

    Let’s get an NYC Tsaiko’s chapter going.

  56. Shoko July 19, 2012 8:51 am

    Wonder if Carmine’s is that place Adam Richman (M vs. F) visited on one of his shows. If I remember correctly, the food looked good and dished were pretty huge.

  57. Buffoman July 19, 2012 8:53 am

    What many thought was a sonic boom over Maui last week was actually the sound of gas prices around the island falling when Costco opened their new gas station.

  62. Pomai July 19, 2012 9:32 am

    Ipu Man I think the Mililani one is the only one in Hawaii

  63. al July 19, 2012 9:40 am

    actually, richard adds to the legacy reggie has already developed over the past few decades having been the judo and jv football coach long before his eventual varsity football legend.

    if anything, reggie has brought respect for the kahuku red raiders as he has taught them to be humble and respectful.

  64. al July 19, 2012 9:42 am

    last call…you called it. oh that power play days by the maui gas moguls will soon end.

    i wonder if costco could do business on lanai and molokai?

  65. Garret July 19, 2012 9:44 am

    The Big Sky and WAC might merge or have some type of scheduling arrangement for everything except for football?

    It seems like the Vandals, should they come back into the fold, could make the Big Sky brand even better.

    “We’re in negotiations with them, there’s no question about it,” Fullerton said. “We’re in negotiations with all those WAC schools.

    “Is there a chance for the Big Sky to solve some of our issues in some of other sports and just absolutely tie up everything that’s left in the West? We kind of hold the cards. But one thing we could never do is give up the stability we’ve gained over the last three years in the process.”

  66. al July 19, 2012 9:46 am

    btw, what time was lunch?

  67. Garret July 19, 2012 9:46 am

    Best wishes to Richard Torres while he is at Kahuku and wherever he goes in the future. Due probably to his size, all of the college coaches seemed to overlook him while he played for Kahuku and he had to start at the bottom of the depth chart at UH and work his way up…and he turned into a huge contributor to the Warriors. His intelligence and work ethic will make him a success as a coach or whatever he wants to do–those schools are really smart to offer him GA positions.

    #19 Gi-gi:

    “actually, anyd (sic) customer service job sucks. That job is for the birds”.

    In my opinion, any job that provides honest work is a great job. Your judgemental attitude towards certain jobs needs to be evaluated. People aren’t always fortunate to have a high muka-muka job like yours.

  77. jimmy the lock July 19, 2012 11:10 am

    @Kaneohe Resident

    I agree with you.

  78. Kevin July 19, 2012 11:21 am

    Life isnt fair or pretty.

    Some people are relegated to do the jobs we don’t and they shouldnt be looked down upon for it.

    The next time someone complains about customer service or fast food workers, maybe they should go cook or fix problems themselves.

  79. Kevin July 19, 2012 11:35 am

    My parents never ever wanted me to work at fast food when I was in high school. I really wanted a part time job then, but they were very insistant that I dont go that route. Not because it was “beneath” them, but because they knew how difficult it was and how little it paid.

    They never worked in the customer service industry or whatever one wants to call it, but they understood.

    Some people just “get it”.

  80. madeinhawaii July 19, 2012 11:38 am

    I once had a nice talk with the rotor router guy when he came to my father’s house to unplug the sewer system. I asked him how long he had been doing his job. He said, three years. I asked him if he enjoyed his work, he said it beats all the other things he did before. I was surprised. So I asked him why. He said no matter what time of day he shows up.. no matter how delayed he is from a previous job or jobs, customers always greet him with a big smile when arrives.

  81. WarriorNY July 19, 2012 11:39 am


    I’m not sure if that was the place Richman went to but yeah the portion on the dishes are huge. Hopefully some people can come out…

  85. WarriorNY July 19, 2012 12:05 pm

    You’re absolutely right…

  86. jimmy the lock July 19, 2012 12:32 pm

    The internet age:

    Think twice, read twice, before you click submit.

  87. HawaiiMongoose July 19, 2012 12:40 pm

    Garret, re #65, Fullerton was quoted as having said on a Boise radio station yesterday that the WAC had floated the idea of some Big Sky members moving over to the WAC for non-football sports only (they would continue to play football in the Big Sky). This would preserve the WAC’s basketball autobid, making it easier for both whomever moved over to the WAC and whomever stayed behind in the Big Sky to get into the NCAA basketball tournament. Another potential benefit is reduced travel costs if both conferences end up a bit more compact than the Big Sky is now.

    Fullerton called the idea a “longshot” but indicated it would be considered. Although a lot of details would have to be addressed, it could turn out to be a win-win, since it wouldn’t threaten the Big Sky’s football status and could improve everyone’s situation in the non-football sports. (For example, the WAC sponsors baseball and the Big Sky doesn’t, so moving over to the WAC would give Sac State and Northern Colorado a permanent home for their baseball teams.) I think the key is working out some kind of revenue-sharing arrangement to ensure that whether they move or stay, all of the current Big Sky schools enjoy a clear financial benefit from helping the WAC survive.

  88. K-Bay July 19, 2012 12:53 pm

    Having seen dozens if not hundreds of comments, I’m pretty sure even the “apparently judgmental quick click” senders are pretty nice people…

    Still, appreciate the reflective counterpoints…and was further moved to reflect …


    I think Every Time I did a job “Nobody” wanted to do, I realized that day it woud not have gotten done, except that I was there And it was a Very satisfying day, in that I knew, at least for today, I made a Difference…

    So maybe my time and place on this planet was worthwhile…

    Later, I learned to Accept/ Receive jobs/positions no one else wanted, even when ‘everyone’ couldn’t understand why or even thought I was crazy and there were tough weeks, even years…looking back, the difference I think I helped make was even more apparent or satisfying and in these cases rewards also followed, although in life, benefits are not always so recognizable…


    THEN having Experienced Near Death Experience(s), It Was Confirmed Far Greater than I had even suspected, for you are allowed to see the outward ripples of life and how we affect one another, both with and without us…

    despite the ‘apparent’ risks, I would Highly Recommend experiencing an NDE…

    It Will Change Your Life… And maybe even help those around you…

    I think every single moment IS a Customer Service job…

    And in the Life Review where you get to experience and FEEL (from their perspective) how every other person in the room (and those they affected) felt based on your actions/inter-actions…

    …maybe instead of becoming a MADD or arrest statistic, players/people would find a way to make a better choice like have the courage to ask for a ride, or pull over and sleep it off, wait it out…

    …or maybe help the customer service person have a better day, too…

    Hello my friend! I want to say that this article is awesome, nice written and include almost all important infos. I’d like to see more posts like this .

  116. mo808 July 19, 2012 4:16 pm

    After years of decline, then bankruptcy for Stockton, California.

    Gigi, I’m in a customer service related field…

    I love people…all kinds 🙂

  120. Bryson July 19, 2012 4:48 pm

    I work in a customer service related field as well:..I enjoy meeting new people and talking story…but sometimes you get those customers who act like okole puka’s that just test your patience….the good customers always balance that out though…

  121. gmahoney July 19, 2012 4:49 pm

    Mo808, it was really nice to meet you and the hubby. It was great to see all the Tsaikos in attendance,and especially Wafan. It was really heartwarming to know the Tsai Master missed me!

    Had some running around to do after the CC, so now time for a little power nap. I think I am still on MI time. Yawn.

  122. Wes'side Warrior July 19, 2012 5:00 pm

    Good to hear you guys had fun at the CC!

    Welcome home, GmaHoney… (yes, and you too, Wafan!!)

    We’ll be there soon too, I hope. In the mean time, I’m gonna put up a link to an interesting story that crossed my computer a few minutes ago. Interesting read…

    And with that, g’night, everyone! See you all tomorrow!

  123. jm2375 July 19, 2012 5:10 pm

    mo808 – nice to finally meet you too. Maybe we can carpool to some Tsaiko events in the future.

  124. papajoe2 July 19, 2012 5:12 pm

    WW~ wow Budwieser, Gerber among the companies owned by foriegners. I’m very suprised. Sounds like the candidates running for the presidency made their money investing in foreign commodities.

  125. jm2375 July 19, 2012 5:25 pm

    papajoe – I remember when Anheiser-Busch was sold to that German company. I was wondering if they would do away with the free beer samples at the 2 Busch Gardens theme parks. And, what do you know, they did.

    what’s the word???

  134. wafan July 19, 2012 6:18 pm

    So good to see a so many Tsai-kos and Tsai-kettes. Even a couple of new ones. Thank to jmanykinenumbers for the special treat! Mmmmmmmmmmm!!! My niece is a huge fan so she dragged her parents up for some, as she put it, much needed dessert.

  135. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 6:20 pm

    Glad everybody had a good time. Sorry I couldn’t make it.

    I had a good time too, but it was at Romano’s Macaroni Grill with an old friend of mine from out of town. It was so nice to see her.

    I recommend the eggplant parmigiana at Romano’s. I always order that when I am there.

  136. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 6:22 pm

    Re the customer service flap. Sorry I hurt people’s feelings. Didn’t mean to. All I know is it is a very difficult job.

  137. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 6:24 pm

    Talk about difficult jobs. I feel so sorry for Jim Donovan!

  138. Ipu Man July 19, 2012 6:29 pm

    Buffoman…thank you.

    And thanks to Papajoe2 and Pomai for pointing out where Long John Silver is.

    I knew it was someplace in Mililani but not exactly where (above or below

    a bunch of winding streets nearer Makai or not…). So after googling, if any

    of you hungry for fried fish, etc, I found out that:

    a) Take H2 past Aiea to Pearl City to Waipio to Meheula St exit…

    b) Go left to ocean and go left again at Christ Luthern Church at Lanikuhana St…

    c) And go around the bend and Long John Silver is just on your right…

    at the lanipaa St intersection. The U.S. postoffice is behind it….

    Might just be easier to order a fish sandwich at Jackinbox or BK tho…

    But Ljs hushpuppies might make the drive worth it.

  139. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 6:32 pm

    Ipu: Hubby and I dined at Long John Silver when it was located at Moanalua Shopping Center, before the center was torn down and rebuilt. It didn’t seem to have much business, lots of empty seats. Maybe, that’s why they moved to Mililani.

  140. Ipu Man July 19, 2012 6:34 pm

    Earlier Mike Cherry interviewed a lawyer who said it would be cheaper for UH

    just to let Donovan’s contract run out rather than fire him…

  141. Ipu Man July 19, 2012 6:36 pm

    Gigi, hmmmmmmmm, when I used to go to Moanalua Ljs, it was always busy

    with lots of military and difficult to find parking nearby for my handicap friend.

  142. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 6:37 pm

    I guess if admin let JD remain on the job til his contract ran out, he would be like a lame duck, unable to make any big or difficult decisions.

  143. Ipu Man July 19, 2012 6:41 pm

    I hope only the best for Jim Donovan and he should be a prize catch

    for some organization in the future who needs someone

    with a tremendous track record other than this latest boo-boo

    seemingly carried out by “others”…

  144. Da Punchbowl Kid July 19, 2012 6:46 pm

    I had one of those spesho envelopes too, Miss Mo! 😳 Nice to meet you and da hubby today! Mr. Mo, your wife is a lovely and gracious lady! Was good fun reminiscinginginging wif da Twin Troubadour Titas too! (You know who you are… 😉 )

  146. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 6:57 pm

    Busy weekend coming up. Saturday I have to babysit my grandkids.

    Sunday is marriage day. Hubby wants to drive to Kahuku for Giovanni’s shrimp, which we’ve never had. However, what if we have to go to the bathroom? No place to go! So we might not drive there after all…

  147. Tony Collins July 19, 2012 7:00 pm

    Employment interviewees with previous transgressions could learn of their known history and provide this ValidateJOB Verification Report report upfront to potential employers. This would give them a chance to clarify the previous incidences to the potential employer and discuss the circumstances with the decision maker.

  148. jm2375 July 19, 2012 7:09 pm

    DPK – we must get Mr. C to confirm your story. 😀

  149. tom mui July 19, 2012 7:22 pm

    MsMO, DPK, WAFAN, Al et al. Sorry I missed MsMo and seeing WAFAN again.

    Today was too busy for me to go to the CC. Had PT and a medical procedure this afternoon at Queen’s. Was at Sears bright and early to exchange my modem – but the replacement didn’t work either!

    Oceanic can’t get to me till Monday.

    So here I am with my walker and sipping ice tea at Barnes and Noble taking advantage of its WIFI. I happen to remember as I sat here, I could have gone to the McCully Library too!

  150. Joanne Pierson July 19, 2012 7:26 pm

    Stand out from other applicants as this proves a degree of assurance and makes the employer look at the employment interviewees in a positive manner.

  151. gigi-hawaii July 19, 2012 7:28 pm

    Tom: try buying a new router. Good you also got a new modem. For us, the problem was the router.

  152. Da Punchbowl Kid July 19, 2012 7:54 pm

    A lot of folks will see JD is the goat and the many others will get off relatively scott free.

    What kind of spin will the UH administration try.

    @156 Steve, you know we had one in our van (long gone now) for many years. What with the commute to and from Kailua to town (school, work, sports) and with the four boys in tow–one of them always needed a potty break…Boy, it came in handy!

  161. oldtimer808 July 19, 2012 8:31 pm

    Good for you because it takes a good, strong person to apologize (Gigi)(#136). I know it can be difficult getting a thought across on a blog without realizing a seemingly innocent statement can be misunderstood. I am in your age category, well, a little older since I get a discount at the public golf courses now since last year. Ahhhh that makes me going on 66. I cheer for Norm Chow and his efforts.

    Back in the 1980’s as we were preparing students (and ourselves) for electronic comms– esp. chats and listservs (blogs are so 2000+), we were taught: “There is nothing you can say that will not be taken wrongly or attacked by someone, somewhere.”

    Very true. Fast forward to the 2006 Warrior Beat blog. It had the advantage of a older group of posters ..hence fewer initial problems. Then they met for a Blog Party. Now, when you meet someone in person, you get an impression of their attitude and sense of humor. The fear of offense lessens. That’s when the blog exploded and we all had a lot of fun– newpeople joined in and we met in person (blog party 2, cattle calls)…the cycle continued….

  165. SteveM July 19, 2012 9:21 pm

    In the end, UH athletics is more than one man, or two, or whatever.

    There are hundreds of student-athletes thousands cheer for and support and there are a ton of employees that have also shed much “blood and sweat” for their livelihood.

    Life is never fair and life moves on.

    The future is going to come sooner than later and sooner than later someone needs to be in place to take control.

    What their agenda is… remains to be seen.

    Amazing technology watching the British Open. The camera is behind the player when he hits his ball and there is a blue line following the flight of the ball. Now we can actually see how these professionals bend the ball for a good position or even mess up.

    These days of austerity along with relative anxiousness about taking on debt, lots of people balk contrary to the idea of using a credit card to make acquisition of merchandise or even pay for any gift giving occasion, preferring, instead just to rely on the actual tried and also trusted technique of making settlement raw cash. However, if you have the cash available to make the purchase entirely, then, paradoxically, that’s the best time to use the credit cards for several causes.

    Great to hear from DPK yesterday that the CC went off so well. Welcome to mo808 & hubs for joining our motley crew!

    I think the fact that we have all enjoyed each others company over the years is what really makes it so special. The fellowship we have built along the way keeps growing not just here but in other locations around the globe.

    Global Tsaiko’s…what a concept!
