Max Baca & Los TexManiacs at Hawaii Theatre

The University of Hawaii at Manoa Outreach College is presenting Max Baca & Los TexManiacs at Hawaii Theatre on October 24. We thought this event might be of interest to your community. I’ve provided the concert information below. If you find it appropriate, we’d appreciate if you could share it with you community. Thank you! Max Baca & LosTexManiacs to perform at Hawaii Theatre on October 24 @ 7:30pm. Tickets at

Combine a hefty helping of Tex Mex conjunto, simmer with several parts Texas rock, add a daring dash of well-cured blues, and R&B riffs, and you’ve cooked up the tasty TexManiacs groove. Not to say that this group’s sound is for musical gourmets only… it is, “hip music everyone can relate to” . Los Texmaniacs — feed the masses, with only the best in musical fare. Founded by Max Baca (bajo sexto, vocals), the TexManiacs are a product of his wide-ranging experience touring and recording with everyone from his father’s family conjunto, Flaco Jimenenz, the original Texas Tornados, Los Super Seven and even the Rolling Stones.

Special Operation Delivery



Operation Special Delivery (or OSD), provides trained volunteer doulas for pregnant women whose husbands or partners have been severely injured or who have lost their lives due to the current war on terror, or who will be deployed , or unable to attend the birth due to military reasons. The doulas that are volunteering are doing so at a pro bono (free) rate, and are doing so by their own discresion.

What is a doula? A doula is specially trained to give informational, emotional, and physical support to women during childbirth. A doula does not perform medical tasks, but is trained to provide uninterrupted support to a mother in labor and during birth.

Why military moms? OSD believes that no one should go through childbirth without support, especially the women who are giving birth while their husbands or partners are making such a great sacrifice for our country and our freedom.”

 If you have any questions or comments, please email Freeman, CCCE, CLD

Military Housing on Oahu


Information on housing is by far our number one request for information! Before we delve into wait lists, garages and breed restrictions let’s get the basics of the island down. Oahu is broken down into five sections: The North Shore, Windward, South, Central, and Leeward.

The Island of Oahu


North Shore, Windward, South, Central and the Leeward Coast.


Knowing which base you’ll be stationed at and which section of the island will make finding housing, both on base and off, much easier.

Hawaii Red Cross – Advanced Child Care Training

American Red Cross

Hawaii Red Cross Offers

New Advanced Child Care Training

HONOLULU, HI: The Hawaii Red Cross is now offering Advanced Child Care Training, a course for people 16 years and older who are or plan to become nannies, sought-after babysitters or who are caring for keiki for the first time in a residential setting.  The course is also a good option for grandparents and other relatives who might want a child care refresher before watching keiki.

“Parents often have a tough time finding good child care, and the Red Cross makes it easier to spot the best sitters,” said Coralie Chun Matayoshi, CEO, Hawaii Red Cross.  “The new Red Cross Advanced Child Care Training course helps people become the best sitter they can by teaching exactly what to do in emergencies and typical child care situations.”

This Red Cross course enables people to learn while having fun by blending tried-and-true information with digital learning techniques. Participants will learn the most common child care routines and behavior along with safety inside and outside of the house. The course also includesPediatric First Aid, CPR and AED training and certification.

Click here to register,   This course requires a completion of two-hour online learning prior to the classroom session.  Cost is $129.  Upon completion, course takes will receive a two-year certification in both Advanced Child Care Training and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED.  Advanced Child Care Training is not a licensing program and does not meet all state requirements for child care centers or day care providers.

Other features of the training include:

24/7 access to the self-paced, online training portion

Hands-on skills training and assessment

A resource center with downloadable skill sheets on child care subjects, lesson summaries, fact sheets, templates for résumés and business cards, administrative forms and ageappropriate activity ideas.

Parents value a well-trained sitter, as more than 80 percent of parents say they would pay more for a sitter who is trained in CPR, first aid and child care skills, according to a 2012 Red Cross survey.

About the American Red Cross:
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.
