that did not escalate to eruption. Hawai‘i over the past five years has fortunately offered safe viewing, has not required evacuations, and has only minimally impacted infrastructure. However, communities living on the flanks of Hawai‘i's active volcanoes should always be prepared for the range of activities that Hawai‘i's volcanoes can exhibit. You and your family can be better prepared for one of the many natural hazards that can impact Island of Hawaiʻi residents by taking some time now, when it is quiet, to visit the Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense website on preparedness: https://www.hawaiicounty.gov/departments/civil-defense/emergency-prepar....

TROJAN CHEERLEADERS BOOST SPIRIT OF KA‘Ū. Ka‘ū Trojan cheerleaders are fully supporting the fall sports season, cheering on the football team, which won its last two games, setting such school records for the most point scored and most yards gained. The 13 freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior girls are led by coaches, Carma Hanshew and Jamie Kalua‘u.
Trojan cheerleaders practice on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays after school from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Their uniforms and pompoms are the colors of Ka‘ū High School, maroon and white.
Cheers include chants, dances, and jumps. The three senior captains are Lilyana Haina, Janeea Bonoan, and Chazlynn Pua-Queja. "I got into cheerleading because my sister did cheerleading in her high school years", said Haina. "I joined cheerleading in my sophomore year because my friend convinced me to and it sounded fun", said Bonoan.
Ka‘ū cheerleaders welcome cheerleaders from visiting teams and recently hosted Hawai‘i Preparatory Academy, Honoka‘a, and Kohala.
