Re: 35 Die on Hawa‘i Island Roadways So Far in 2017
Posted by hurricanepaul on 12/13/2017 5:24am

It's the undivided highways where cars crossing the line (for whatever reason) collide with the oncoming cars.

Hawaii Island needs to DIVIDE their highways.

How were these fishermen swept out to Sea? Where they on shore and struck by a wave or were they in a boat? Details please.

The BLNR is just another terrorist organization that stole Hawaii from Hawaiians. And for what? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ They all belong in jail.

Re: Legislators Seek to Allow Research of Medical Marijuana as Alternative to Opioids

Pot doesn't work for chronic pain and who can go to work stoned and function? idiots! Second... don't people know the Bushes and Clinton's have warehouses full of Heroin from Afghanistan they need to sell and can't if everyone uses pills. The real war on drugs is your stupidity! The entire opioid scare scam is so they can dump Heroin on us and if they really gave a damn they would get rid of tobacco and alcohol which kills way more than pills every year. Wake up dummies!!!!

Negative is just not getting protecting the peaceful pristine premise that exists now over the possibility of
GREED FOR THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR or your
dreams of frivolity polluting the bay our children
paddle in.

Sorry you missed article info re: Kona available.
GO HELP OVERDEVELOP WHAT'S LEFT OF KONA,
you and all those living in your alternate reality.

Stop carping about east-side negativity and all your
other yak yak yak innuendo. Feel free to migrate to what's left of the 'positive' west-side.

I am still so amazed by the handful of people who
believe everything they see, hear, read
on the Internet.

Briggs- go take it up with them.
How does a company who runs derelict vessels
earn anyone's trust ?

Re: Residents Quack Over New Tour Operation
Posted by Anita Briggs on 12/4/2017 12:39pm

Both of the examples sited in this article were of the old military duck boat, not the new duck boats that this company has. Sorry you relied on misinformation from this article. As the West Hawaii news paper reported, this couple was there to explain this to the Hilo residents. Once again very negative.

Re: Residents Quack Over New Tour Operation
Posted by Stephen Powell on 12/4/2017 12:16pm

The article references 2 incidents. The explosion in Oahu and the accident in Seattle. If you read the articles you will see that both "ducks" were 60 year old (Seattle) and 45-50 year old (Oahu). Big Island Duck bus/vessel is state of the art. Built specifically for tour operations.

As for Mr. Harden's desires for who HE wants to be allowed in his world - the "Duck" operates only where it is authorized to be - that is a matter for DL&R. They can only go where they are permitted to go.

An exploding boat and people killed.
Does that seem so one-sided to you as well ?

Re: Residents Quack Over New Tour Operation
Posted by Anita Briggs on 12/4/2017 4:46am

Wow, this article was definitely one sided. This tour is highly rated on TripAdvisor. I am still so amazed how a handful of people can always we so negative on the East side.

Re: State Releases Hawai‘i Opioid Initiative Action Plan

I've been a morphine user for 10 years. I've also drank my share of alcohol. Never have I had an issue with misuse. I've have chronic neck and back pain from a roll over vehicle accident. My neck has been fused and I have epidurals done to both my neck and back.
I have been without pain medication the past month and can tell the difference without it. Man can I tell the difference. And I can't even put in an lol on this one folks. I can't sit long nor can I stand long. I sleep about 2-4 hours a night. It certainly gets old.
I saw an episode of the 'Doctor's' the other day. The 45 year old Dr had back issues. But treatment and surgery was ok for him. Maybe that may wake up regular Drs a tad. Nah!
So why is someone like me punished because of those idiots that their brains equal the milligrams of what they addict themselves to?
And yes I live in/on Hawaii. No Drs will help me and none certainly won't treat me or write me a prescription. Whatever happened to the Drs creed?
Or at least I haven't found that one that believes in the Hippocratic Oath. I've been seeing pain management Drs for years. Some treatments help, some pain medications help.
But to simply cut one like me off at the knees? Living in my own shoes, it's unfathomable.
And I lived a normal live with my pain meds and treatments. Now what without?
Oh I forgot to add that I have a lifetime medical coverage for my neck, back, head and hands, from that accident. With a self insured county I worked for when it occurred. No insurance to go thru. Just my adjuster who says 'Yes' to anything to do with my neck, back, head and hands. Free money. Free money.
Even that doesn't sway the clerk at the front office that's covering for the Dr.
Any suggestions?

No words can describe how sorry I am for their loss. I met George two years ago on an overnight stay at Hacienda. My wife was in her last stages of AZ and George was a superb host with accommodations for her needs.

I spent nearly seven years in Saigon during the conflict and he and I had many things in common discussing the current problems in Southeast Asia.
