Regents to cover UH president's job, deal with Donovan

By Craig Gima

POSTED:
LAST UPDATED: 03:51 p.m. HST, Nov 02, 2012


The University of Hawaii Board of Regents on Thursday scheduled a special meeting next week to continue its discussion on UH President M.R.C. Greenwood's employment and the university's settlement with former athletic director Jim Dono­van.

Much of the meeting Wednesday will be in executive session because the topics involve personnel matters and consultation with UH attorneys.

But the regents scheduled a public vote and discussion on Dono­van's settlement, which gave him a three-year marketing job in the UH-Manoa Chancellor's Office at a yearly salary of $211,200 and paid $30,000 to his attorney.

State Sen. Donna Kim has said that the attorney general's office gave her an opinion saying the regents should have approved Dono­van's new job as a legal settlement.

Instead, the board discussed Dono­van's new position behind closed doors and issued a statement supporting the move. The statement also expressed support for Greenwood and UH-Manoa Chancellor Tom Apple.

Donovan's reassignment came after Greenwood suspended Dono­van and Stan Sheriff Center Manager Rich Sheriff with pay following UH's loss of $200,000 in an apparent Stevie Wonder concert scam.

Donovan hired attorney David Simons, who threatened to sue the university for defamation, until the settlement was reached. Dono­van also agreed to leave his $240,000-per-year job as athletic director, a position that would have ended next March.

If the regents reject Dono­van's settlement, it could lead to a lawsuit.

Greenwood and the regents have also been criticized for the mounting costs following the failed concert. The Senate accountability committee estimates the cost at more than $1.3 million, including the loss of the $200,000 and more than $600,000 for Dono­van's new job.

The regents and UH also confirmed Thursday that they have hired a law firm, McCorriston Miller Mukai MacKinnon LLP, to assist the regents with their discussion of Greenwood's employment contract.

UH spokeswoman Lynne Waters said in an email that the maximum amount of the contract is $25,000. It has not been signed and will be released when it is, Waters said.

Attorney Bill McCorriston met with the regents during a closed-door meeting Oct. 12.

Waters' email was sent in response to the Star-Advertiser's public-records request to find out the hiring of the law firm.

UH waited 10 days, the maximum time allowed under the law, before replying to the newspaper's questions.

In another development, the Board of Regents announced that Keith Ame­miya, the board's secretary and executive administrator, is leaving at the end of the month. Ame­miya is taking a new job as senior vice president with Island Holdings Inc., parent company of Island Insurance, Atlas Insurance, Tradewind Capital and other local businesses.

Donovan is totally clueless if he even went back to that job. He must know that the coaches and administrators don't want him back in that job. Why? Want about the current search for a new A.D. The search firm has already been paid. Lose money again!! Donovan started off as the sad, unfortunate, sympathetic, scapegoat in this whole Wonder Blunder. Now, he's just a pain in the a**.

Gotta admit,for a clueless guy, he was pretty smart to hire an attorney, not remember anything about the theft, and threaten the UH-M with a suit if they didn't give him a new 3-year, $600,000-plus contract. We may never know what he knew, but we'll pay him anyway.

Allie, you've had nothing but condemnation for President Greenwood since the July incident. Not sure anyone will recall, nor will recorded comments indicate that you said she was up against a male hierarchy. And if she was, no one forced her into that position, for which she was exceptionally well compensated. I'm sorry, if you want to play in that league, you accept what comes with it. Don't expect sympathy because you aren't one of the boys.

Donovan has been exonerated in the official report (which UH paid for) in every aspect of the Stevie Wonder debacle. He did not authorize the transfer of funds, he wasn't even in Hawaii when that happened. This whole thing smacks of a coverup by Greenwood, Apple and the BoR. And if I had been treated like UH treated Donovan, I would have sued them, too. He has rights, and they were trampled on by M.R.C. Apple and the BoR. And if anyone belongs in the unemployment line, it's M.R.C, Apple and the BoR. Detect a trend here?

I know Jim and find him to be a person with high integrity and honesty. I don't blame the public when it comes to passing judgment based on available information and/or perceptions. The fact is if you were in his shoes, was given glowing reviews iin your evaluations, being told that you have done an outstanding job in public, and then suddenly being told you no longer will be the AD, what does that say about the dysfuctionality of UH? At the end of the day, we all would have the same thing that Jim has done and that is to take care of himself and his family.

If the so-called leaders at UH-M had followed protocol instead of trying to coverup something, Donovan's contract would have expired in March and he would have been on his way somewhere else. This isn't Donovan's fault, it's Greenwood, Apple and the BoR's fault.

Agreed! As soon as the initial "investigation" was done where JD and Sheriff were "cleared," BOTH of them should have been reinstated at the same time. Instead, only Sheriff was reinstated which made JD look the the bad guy regardless of the findings. If the BOR really wanted to hire another AD, they could have let JD ride out the contract which expires in March 2013, then just say that they are going to look for a new AD. If JD wanted to re-apply, that's fine, and the selection committee could just pick someone else. That way, he has no complaint. His contract is over, and there was no guarantee of renewal, and you cannot sue for that. What's the worst he could have done until March? I'm sure all the athletic teams' schedules have already been completed as well as travel plans, so the only thing he might have been overseeing is recruiting for teams that play early in the school year such as football. And if necessary, select an interim AD until the new one is hired. UH could have saved a ton of money!

The crux of the problem stems from the administration trying to make Donovan the scape goat for the Stevie Wonder concert, even though he had staffed it through the legal and finance departments. Considering what was later stated that he wanted to renew McMackin's contract after huge losses in attendance and revenues, and his lavish expenditures, they should have left him out of the Stevie Wonder debacle, and let his contract run out. Then, we the taxpayers wouldn't have had to pay the extra $1.1M and his retirement. If what Greenwood and Apple did is not gross incompetency, I don't know what is.

At UH, sports seems to be the root of all evil. Maybe State priorities should be shifted away from UH sports and more towards High School sports. You would think the State high school sports structure (especially the public schools) could do plenty with the $1.3 million plus that's been and will be spent on this. Considering the makeup of UH teams, also seems like our resident kids would also be more direct beneficiaries of such a switch in priorities.

Yup...in the "good old days," anyone remember the rivalry games at HONOLULU Stadium? Farrington vs, McKinley or Punahou or St. Louis? And those games drew thousands of spectators. Turkey Bowl game? The boiled peanut vendor with the raspy voice yelling "PEANUTS!" that could even be heard on radio broadcasts. UH sports, football especially, was a sideline to HS games. They played opponents like Linfield and Portland State. Then, UH "grew up" and wanted to play with the BIG boys in D1. Problem is, we don't have as much money or muscle to keep up. Adding to that, we do not have a professional team to back so by default, the Warriors ARE our "professional" team. If you go to any UH football game, many if not most of the spectators are NOT students or even alums. They are just regular Hawaii citizens who back UH simply because they're the only game in town. That's fine, but like a professional team, UH is expected to WIN and win often. We don't have the horses or funds to keep up with the likes of Alabama, Florida, USC, Oregon, or any of the other top tier teams so as long as we accept that, we'll be OK. But if a BCS bowl is what you want every year, that's going to be difficult. In that one glorious year with one of the best UH teams ever, we did go to the Sugar Bowl....then Georgia put it all in perspective. It was a nice experience though.
