awaii writer Stafford-Ames Morse, now re­tired to the Main­land, seeks de­tails about Wa­ialee Train­ing School for Boys, now a burned-out build­ing in front of the old Craw­ford Con­va­les­cent Home on the North Shore. His fa­ther was ath­letic di­rec­tor there in the war years and they lived on the prop­erty. He’d like to record a his­tory of Wa­ialee, and any­one con­nected with it may email him at morsesa@hot­mail.com … The Fisher House 5K run is Aug. 18 at Pa­cific Avi­a­tion Mu­seum, and com­bat boots are still wel­come from donors. Hope­fully, 5,000 sets of empty boots will line the span of Ford Is­land Bridge that day in mem­ory of our fallen sol­diers, in­clud­ing Toby Olsen (Mililani 1997), who was killed in Iraq in 2007. His mother Lis, a pro­gram man­ager for Sur­vivor Outreach Ser­vices at Fort Shafter, is help­ing col­lect the boots. To of­fer help, call 561-7423 or 438-9285 … High­fives to Mililani High’s HMSA Kaimana Schol­ar­ship win­ners ($3,000 each) for out­stand­ing aca­demics and ath­let­ics, sports­man­ship and community ser­vice: Heather Hi­gashi and Shayna Hokama … Add North Shore res­i­dent Cindy Flana­gan to the list of Cen­tral Oahu folks who re­cently joined Coldwell Banker Pa­cific Prop­er­ties Re­al­tor- As­so­ci­ates … Lucky slot play­ers in down­town Las Ve­gas re­cently in­clude Mililani’s Gar­rett Suzuki $14,800; Wahi­awa’s Jane Oda $ 8,573, Josephine Char­gualaf $ 8,225 and Lau­retta Se­wake $7,659; and Mililani’s Utu­tau Tupua $4,000 … Wahi­awa oph­thal­mol­o­gist Christo­pher Tor­tora knows you like your contact lenses, but, dog­gonit, you’ve got to treat ’em right when you clean up! His ad­vice: “Be sure hands are al­ways clean and dry, fol­low in­struc­tions, don’t use sa­line so­lu­tion, don’t top off the case, use fresh so­lu­tion each time, and don’t share your con­tacts.” Then tune into his Hawai­ian Eye ra­dio show at 8 a.m. Satur­days on KHVH
