    They do not have the authority to stop people from going in the water at their own risk. It may be dangerous, or even extremely dangerous - but for any governmental official to think they have the authority to deny access into Hawaiian waters for any reason is tyranny.

    Glad you are OK.

    My grandaughter has attended this school for the last three years. She loves it. The teachers and staff are caring and attentive. Dr. Young, the Principal, is also a major reason the school and students do so well.

    Check out all da bars and pay special attention to customers ordering their drinks wit extra ice.

    Dear Senator Schatz:
    It is the democratic party that gave us Flint, Michigan.

    Can someone tell me where to find marungay on the Big Island?

  • Re: Kaiser Medicare Plan Receives Top RankingPosted by lazerhaze on 1/18/2017 1:37am

    Unfortunately AARP does not offer plans where I live. I had 2 choices for Medicare supplemental plans where I live. Ohana Health (local in state ins. plan) and Kaiser. Ohana Health had premiums at $149 per month with $40 and $60 copays and Kaiser was $197 with 40 to 60 dollar copays on top of basic medicare premiums.

    The only way the HPD is going to find these two is if they walk into the department and turn themselves in.

    Here's a tip for the popo...places not to look for the woman...yoga studios or health food stores.
    Places to look for her....fast food joints, kens on all you can eat spaghetti night, run down apartment complexs. You should find her "chubby chaser" man with her.

  • Re: Poison Experiment at Pōhakuloa Training AreaPosted by sydsinger on 1/16/2017 4:40am

    Where are the Sierra Club, Hawaii Audobon Society, and other environmental groups? Why are they not screaming about this experiment and plans to aerial broadcast rodenticide in wilderness areas? If you are a member of these groups, I hope you contact them and ask them why they are ignoring the poisoning of Hawaii.

  • Re: Poison Experiment at Pōhakuloa Training AreaPosted by mE.! on 1/15/2017 5:08pm

    Typical dismissive-of-facts attitude spewed from the right.

    Not that there are enough facts to be dismissive of. Maybe they could release the details of the permit and we could all make a more educated decision based on them.

  • Re: Poison Experiment at Pōhakuloa Training AreaPosted by Maya Dolena on 1/15/2017 3:34pm

    If anything needs to be tested on rodents to see how and what it kills, it is dangerous to the other wildlife. Why is it the only way we solve problems is by killing something. We are smarter than that, I would hope. With all our technology and advancements, we resort to killing with potentially dangerous materials. Hawaii does not deserve this.

    You the one that’s “confused”. And, no, this “idea” is not stupid.:-(((

  • Re: Name Change for Kona International AirportPosted by vet2640 on 1/15/2017 1:01pm

    Good job, what took so long?

  • Re: Marungay–The Miracle TreePosted by Agroforestry Design on 1/15/2017 4:30am

    Thanks for sharing Aunty Darde. Agreed, it is something that should be in every yard to help ensure the health and vitality of all the generations under each roof.
    The tree of life just gives and gives while asking for nothing.

  • Re: Name Change for Kona International AirportPosted by Jeffrey Wilson on 1/15/2017 3:50am

    Is this even true? If yes, it's a really stupid idea. I'm sorry the guy died, but most people don't know who he was, and a name change will only confuse people.

  • Re: Poison Experiment at Pōhakuloa Training AreaPosted by Cory on 1/14/2017 5:36pm

    Mr. Singer, some of your points may be valid, but unfortunately, in the past, you have supported invasive species (coquis, mangroves, and more) and have misquoted sources.

    Everyone loves good plentiful Sushi eats

    Yes.

  • Re: Name Change for Kona International AirportPosted by nitediver on 1/13/2017 10:34am

    Will it still be KOA?

  • Re: Poison Experiment at Pōhakuloa Training AreaPosted by midnight rambler on 1/13/2017 7:42am

    And yet, you couldn't cut it at those programs (let me guess - "the mainstream establishment didn't like your ideas"?), and instead became a crank promoting pseudoscience about how bras cause breast cancer, and how we in Hawaii should embrace damaging invasives like coqui and strawberry guava and just let our native heritage go extinct. Hewa!

  • Re: Poison Experiment at Pōhakuloa Training AreaPosted by midnight rambler on 1/13/2017 7:39am

    It's labelled extremely toxic to fish. Not many fish at PTA. Not everything processes chemicals the same way; for example, theobromine (aka chocolate) is extremely toxic to dogs. Also, the "pristine groundwater" is thousands of feet below the surface.

    And even if you think it's bad, chlorophacinone is one of the least toxic rodenticides, much less so than brodifacoum or warfarin (which is used as a heart medicine), and not much worse than cholecalciferol, aka vitamin D. Yes, that's right - vitamin D is used to kill rats, and many prefer it because they only have to feed on it once as opposed to having to eat several doses of anticoagulants like chlorophacinone.

    Maybe you could tell the truth for once in your life? We're not buying your fake concern for the environment anymore. The fact that you're now pretending to care about endangered native species - the very ones threatened by rats - that you've long denigrated in favor of coqui, guava, fire ants, and rats exposes your hypocrisy for all to see.

    Hope he lives up to the honor and integrity that his new position demands.

  • Re: TMT Hearing: Petitioners’ Witnesses Take the StandPosted by michaelrivero on 1/13/2017 4:01am

    I understand the Native Hawaiians' concerns. And if we were talking about a sewage treatment plant or fertilizer factory I would agree it should go somewhere else.

    But here is something to consider.

    Native Hawaiians view those volcanoes as the home of Madam Pele, who is already wearing a crown of the most amazing jewels science can produce.

    But all crowns deserve a crown jewel, a Kohinoor, and the 30 meter telescope represents the finest technological accomplishment that will complement Pele's regalia!

    I think Pele herself, being after all a woman, would approve of this added "bling!"
