The scenery was nice - gorgeous, in fact - but that's not what we'll remember most about our trip to Hawaii in January 2002. Our group, 27 members strong, traveled to Maui from homes in Pennsylvania and at least five other states, and as far away as Scotland. We gathered for several reasons: a family reunion, my mom's 50th birthday, my parents' 30th anniversary, and my graduation from nursing school. But, we made the trip mostly for the wedding of my Uncle Bruce and his Scottish girlfriend, Rhona.

It was a strange choice for my wife and I to make: Enjoy a restful night's sleep at the Royal Lahaina Resort on Maui, or get up in the middle of the night to drive to the summit of Mount Haleakala and watch the sunrise. Having already been treated to several spectacular sunsets from our lanai, we wondered how anything could top them. Besides, who among the sane would trade tropical warmth for a two-hour car ride up a winding mountain road in order to shiver 10,000 feet above sea level?

Just over the horizon is Mars. Or so it seems. To the visitors of Haleakala National Park, on the Hawaiian island of Maui, the first few steps along the unearthly seeming Sliding Sands Trail may give an impression that the visitor is strolling on another planet. The dusty, red terrain brings Mars to mind. There are house-size boulders and thousands of smaller rocks scattered across an immense and desolate landscape. The gaping crater is 7 1/2 miles long and 2 1/2 miles across.

There seems to be a conspiracy to keep this little coastal gem a secret. The guidebooks almost revel in describing how difficult it is to get here. The Maverick Guide to Hawaii, for example, notes that there are 617 twists and turns on the 53-mile road to the village, plus "the possibility that a landslide might block the road in rainy weather. " (A particularly frightful thought considering that the road passes through a rain forest.) The guide further warns of the road: "Any one of its miles of splendiferous views also may distract a driver from his steering wheel.

The bloody bullet wound could have cost Delaware Avenue nightclub bouncer Steven Mazza his leg or his life, a doctor testified yesterday. "That gunshot wound could have been lethal," Edward S. Chmara told jurors in Common Pleas Court. The .45-caliber bullet went through Mazza's right thigh and nearly severed an artery, Chmara said. Mazza, then 22, had been working at Maui for just six weeks when he was shot April 16 at the end of the nonalcoholic "young adult night" at the riverfront club.

Visitors to the Hawaiian island of Maui will be getting an unusual type of aloha greeting in the coming weeks: a warning about dengue fever on the eastern portion of the island. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that since September, at least 40 cases of locally acquired dengue fever have been diagnosed in Hawaii, the majority of them in rural residents of east Maui. The CDC said it was the first outbreak of dengue in Hawaii in more than 56 years. Officials said the chance of travelers contracting the mosquito-borne illness was slim, but not unheard of in places where the disease exists.

Now that Temple has a football home, now that the Owls and Villanova finally know where the schools are playing their game on Sept. 6, there is another impasse. This one is between the two Big Five rivals: They can't agree on when to play their men's basketball game this season. Temple has a Villanova date on its books - Nov. 21, the first day that NCAA Division I teams are allowed to play this season. But Villanova says its basketball team will be across the country that day playing a Division III school, on its way to Hawaii to play in the Maui Invitational from Nov. 24 to 26. "The date of the game is the 21st," Temple coach John Chaney said this week.

The generation that grew up on syrupy canned fruit cocktail, in which all the square bits of fruit tasted virtually the same, will not relate to this. Nor will Grandma, who stewed and stockpiled her own cooked fruit in Mason jars. The modernized fruit compote is a shocker. It actually tastes like fruit. The syrup is not too sweet. The texture is not far from the feel of the fruit as it was plucked ripe from the tree. And if you follow the creative compote recipes from chef Patrick Callarec, who is doing his own thing on the far side of Maui, there's a surprise ingredient added to each, namely an herb or a spice.

It is dusty, dark and deep. Tool-belt-wearing workers stroll past the brown-block columns and golden- hued walls covered with pharaoh caricatures. "This isn't Egypt," warns publicist Steve Rosenberg. Not exactly. The inside of his clients' 15,000-square-foot street-level catacombs, with a 35-foot-high sphinx, is spurious indeed. Black, ready-to-boom loudspeakers hang from the ceilings, and three wet bars are primed to serve patrons when the club opens Nov. 20. No one in his right mind could mistake this place for Cairo.

HONOLULU - The future is looking bleak for a celebrity privacy bill in Hawaii known as the Steven Tyler Act. The proposal pushed by the Aerosmith lead singer would allow people to sue others who take photos or videos of their private moments. But after sailing through the Senate earlier this month following personal testimony from Tyler at a February hearing, the bill is missing deadlines in the state House, and key lawmakers say they won't push it through. Rep. Angus McKelvey, of Maui, the chairman of the first of three House committees that the bill needs to pass to get to the House floor, said that he won't hold a hearing for the bill.

A SEISMIC SHIFT is occurring in the entertainment firmament. Justin Bieber has been booed in London. The Biebs, who's 19 now but sings to a legion of girls just a few years removed from "Sesame Street," apologized Tuesday to his young fans - and their PO'd parents - after they accused him of taking the stage inconsiderately late for a concert. Bieber insisted that he was only 40 minutes behind schedule, and blamed "technical issues," but show time on the ticket for his roughly 90-minute gig was 8:30 (the O2 Arena said that he was due to go on at 9:30)

IN 3 MONTHS, Ryan Howard will get away from it all. He'll find an escape from a year like no other in his professional career. Howard will wed longtime girlfriend Krystle Campbell, a schoolteacher and former Eagles cheerleader, in Maui this December. More than a year removed from a serious, possibly career-altering surgery on his left Achilles', Howard will have a chance to bask in the sun in a place that might as well be the polar opposite to Philadelphia. "All your cares go away," Howard said of Maui.

Can't afford to vacation in Maui? Lots of people think that - and they're wrong. We have visited Maui every year for the last 20 years, and have discovered tricks and tips to make it an affordable place to stay - and 2011 was no different. Airfare is about $850 round-trip from Philadelphia in the low season (mid-April to mid-June and September to mid-December) to Kahului Airport, in the center of Maui. The Old Wailuku Inn at Ulupono was our first stop, and we found that this inn, just 10 minutes from the airport, is a great place to relax, unwind, and get your bearings.

SHANE VICTORINO already has a cool nickname. Yesterday, the Flyin' Hawaiian got his own day. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie honored the Maui native by declaring yesterday Shane Victorino Day in Hawaii. The Phillies outfielder was recognized for his accomplishments and his support of Hawaiian youth. The Shane Victorino Foundation, which he established with his wife Melissa in February of last year, has already raised more than $550,000 for youth programs in Hawaii and Philadelphia.

HE SAT IN his car and fashioned his resolve. Stick to the script, Shane Victorino told himself repeatedly yesterday morning. Let the others handle the magnitude of the event and the emotions of the day. No crying in - or out - of baseball. And then he walked to the podium outside the Boys & Girls Club that his money refurbished and did what he does best. He poured out his heart, thanked everyone in attendance, from ESPN's Chris Berman to the city's cops and firefighters, cried repeatedly and at one point, waved away the script as if a bug in the batter's box. "To think that a kid in this community will benefit from this Boys & Girls Club means so much to me," he said, dabbing a stream of tears as his voice continued to quiver.
