    Many thanks for the PSA, we citizens need to be constantly reminded of the “scum” amongst us.

    Good job HELCO:) Keep up the good work!

  • Re: HPD: Beware of Telephone Sweepstakes ScamPosted by vet2640 on 7/23/2016 2:31pm

    A few days ago, my elderly mom receives a call, twice in one day, a few hours apart, that she is being sued by the IRS, and the caller leaves a call back number, Jamaica? I presume?. They don’t mention names, etc. Our law enforcement, or us should gather up all of these “riffraff” targeting our seniors and place them in a very large stadium, a “daisy cutter” will do the rest:(

    Shook hard here in Captain Cook

  • Re: Central Pacific Hurricane Center Updates DarbyPosted by Theodore Bennett on 7/23/2016 3:56am

    Whatever does this mean? "Deep convection associated with Darby has increased once again this morning, with the bulk of this activity now across the system’s southeast semicircle.
    Outflow remains best within the northeast quadrant, but is restricted throughout the south semicircle, thanks to continued 8 to 11 mph southwest shear."
    Anyone? Anyone? Bueler? Bueler??

    Agreed 100%. We'll just be sending them back to where most of them came from in the first place.

    Already in probation. This dumb broad ain't very bright.

  • Re: Hawai‘i First to Adopt Firearm EnrollmentPosted by carang_da_buggahz on 7/22/2016 6:16pm

    Why do I need to be entered into some data base, as if I'm a criminal, for merely exercising my Constitutional rights? This was nothing but an attempt to score cheap political points by Ige. You gotta love democrats. Nothing but Harassment, pure and simple. Do you really think the criminals are going to register their (stolen) firearms? Naive politicians do.

  • Re: HPD Investigating Hilo Store RobberyPosted by carang_da_buggahz on 7/22/2016 6:09pm

    Batu changed ALL of that. Very sad.

    That boy should be the Poster Child for the ravages of Batu. Just look at him!

  • Re: Hawai‘i Island Real Estate Sales Near Record HighPosted by carang_da_buggahz on 7/22/2016 6:04pm

    Invaders from the "east" arriving daily, pricing more and more of our ohana out of the market. We cannot compete with the elites who are flush with cash. Meanwhile, more and more local families living under blue tarps.

  • Re: Nuts About CoconutsPosted by vet2640 on 7/22/2016 3:22pm

    I remember my father cracking this nut and giving me “spoon meat”, and a little coconut milk, be careful, too much and you will get “biri-biri kukai”.:) Ah, the good old days, no stress:)

  • Re: Hōlualoa Man Arrested on 14 ChargesPosted by golfpunk500 on 7/21/2016 11:56pm

    Nothing that 20 years in prison can't cure. Also, when he gets out he can tap that 401K of his without penalty.

  • Re: VOLCANO WATCH: Kīlauea Offers Premier Viewing OpportunitiesPosted by Claude Grandpey on 7/21/2016 11:21pm

    OK, Kilauea volcano is very active but it is difficult to have a close look of the lava. Access to Halema'uma'u and Pu'uO'o craters is strictly forbidden. The only possible (distant) views are the glow of the Halema'uma'u lava lake from the terrace of the Jaggar Museum or Pu'uO'o crater from a helicopter. Besides, getting to the lava flow on the coastal flat is long and difficult. I would not call this "premier viewing"!

  • Re: HPD: Farm Vehicles Not Allowed on RoadsPosted by Kanaka farmers on 7/20/2016 12:01pm

    So stop the farmers that don't have the money to transport there vehicle to what ever farm he has work, Hawaii state did you ever heard don't bite the hand that feeds you, I think you just did.

  • Re: Hawai‘i First to Adopt Firearm EnrollmentPosted by Whoathere Dingding on 7/19/2016 5:35pm

    Maybe we should get rid of ige

  • Re: Hawai‘i First to Adopt Firearm EnrollmentPosted by Whoathere Dingding on 7/19/2016 5:34pm

    Hmm Hitler did the same thing "for your safety" as I recall I don't think it worked out all that we'll for the 6 million jews. Just a thought.

  • Re: Hilo Man Dies From Vehicle-Pedestrian CrashPosted by joseph bugado on 7/19/2016 12:30pm

    i dont think was her fault mabe she couldnt see him crossing she deserve a break

  • Re: Hawai‘i First to Adopt Firearm EnrollmentPosted by G. Camacho on 7/19/2016 9:01am

    I considered moving back to Hawaii. With this rule I will be looking elsewhere. Safety is always the excuse given to reduce rights. The choice
    of the governor to harass the law abiding is inexcusable.

  • Re: Hawai‘i First to Adopt Firearm EnrollmentPosted by golfpunk500 on 7/19/2016 1:08am

    Why can't they make the criminals enroll in this? Oh, maybe it's because they don't obey the law. If the State was serious about keeping firearms out of criminals hands then make possession of firearms by felons a major penalty, lets say like 30 years in prison w/o parole. You get about a dozen criminals doing 360 months in prison then word will get out that it just isn't worth it. The current 10 years and/or $25,000 fine just isn't enough of a deterrent. Nebraska has a first offense of up to 50 years in prison with a 3 year mini. Second offense in Nebraska is life with a 20 year mini.

    You must old^^

  • Re: Pokémon Go Players: Use ‘Good Outdoor Ethics’Posted by redbeard on 7/17/2016 2:14pm

    Another useless fad. Another reason to have a phone stuck to your face. What happened to actual scavenger hunts? Hiking and exploring with nothing but yourself and nature? Perhaps this will at least put a dent in the obesity rates here.

    If you think a co op is the answer you need to keep closer attention to the goings on.
    Better to deal with the devil you know than the ones you don't. (Nextera, or Co ops)
