Tropical Storm Oho Not Expected to Become Hurricane
Pretty amazing composure in that situation. Many of criminals would have been shot for picking up a weapon in front of an officer. How officer Arnold was able to identity the weapon and not fire shots is amazing. You put your life on the line to protect us law abiding citizens, and for that I am thankful. Mahalo
So where do you draw the line? Downtown hilo has some beautiful graffiti art of King Kam, Pele, and other hawaiian culture pieces. The city should allow it to a degree. Especially if a building owner agrees with the piece on their wall. The octopus next to hilo guitars and ukuleles is great for that dilapidated building. Oasis skate shop has kids that are great artists. Not very many canvases around for them. Give the people their art.
And we voted for this clown, what a joke. Thanks Harry for Nothing. Just another
GREEDY DemoRAT trying to think of ways to steal our money for their benefits and their retirement fund, payed by us the TAX Payers. How come my taxes don't go to my retirement fund. Seems pretty illegal how they steal our tax money for their personal gains....... Welcome to the MACHINE. They got grandpa back in. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
Vote Harry Kim and his money sucking lazy bums out of office. Every single one of them starting with lazy loser Joe.
I suppose it is inevitable, you know, “taxes and death”. Hey County Council, I am a senior citizen on a “FIXED” income, can I get a I.D Card, and whenever I go to get gas, I get a senior discount, or a Veterans discount, just show your form DD-214, would bet nice to roll back prices back to the 60’s for us old, cranky citizens. Discounts doesn’t have to be every day, just on certain days of the week or on weekends only. Oh, by the way, we vote!
***Dekind. I spent over 15 years doing specialized contract work for multiple federal agencies. One thing I saw, was they would spend millions of dollars doing studies and research on something totally stupid, as why people prefer using round trash cans over square ones. Then they would publicly release the info and the public thinks that study cost us thousands of dollars. No, way off. The feds have way too many agencies that are redundant and mimic other agencies. This is the kicker: A dept has to have a leader, then his assistants, then on down the line. If there is nothing to do, or fake doing, then that agency may be dissolved or cut back. That is why there are so many asinine studies, to make them look busy, to make sure their jobs are justified. The article above said that the park has to stripe the parking lots and road system. How long does that take 2-3 days?
As stated in the article, 2016 Hawai'i Volcanoes National park had 1,887,580 visitors. Even at $10.00 a head, that's $18,875,580.00 to run the park! How can they justify upping the admission? Don't we own the park to begin with? Do we have a say in the rate hike? Who makes these decisions?
Something isn't right here. : (
So why do you show a picture of a Hurricane in Florida ?
The Hawaii government just said "We haven't had these tides THIS HIGH since 1905"
Okay, if we weren't driving SUV's back in 1905, WHAT CAUSED the "super-duper high tides" in 1905?
Yep. The Christian bible is right and all your native culture is wrong! Get back to your roots people!
***Jose. Unfortunately courts, judges, prosecutors and attorneys each have different approaches to a court case. Same crime, two different defendants, two different judges and there will be two different outcomes. They all weigh the perps prior criminal history, his actions in the new crime, how the victims feel, and how aggressive the attorney is. It should be equal, but seldom is. Then again, how well did HPD investigate? Does the perp get an appointed attorney or have money to hire, someone, say, like, DeLima? If you sat and listened to two different trials, two different judges, you will see many different ways the trial is handled. You have to watch mannerisms, the way each person talks, how the judge lets the prosecutor and or attorney act, what kinds of physical responses the perp makes as things are said and how well the PD testifies. Many people never go to court their entire lives, so they don't understand how that system works. Want to kill a few hours, go check out a trial or two and see what happens.
***Then you must be a hiney kisser. I don't live my life to make others happy. Everyone you have met? Must not be too many people, or you avoid places knowing they will not give you the love you so much crave.
***Usual reply from Lib/Dems. You all state tolerance and understanding.....BUT only if it agrees with your agenda. I go where I please, so Bi is a state and anybody can move to it.
***Those two extra big words must have given rise to a special feeling. Just try to not do that in public, you might get arrested.
***Keep it up and your going to burst a neck vane. Is that cute little picture of the big strong man, a pic of you? Naw, I see you as a pastey, pale, 5'7", 145 pound sissy boy, that writing tough words makes you feel big. Do what makes you feel good.
***I am sorry, but no matter how much you try to be my friend, it just won't work. All my friends are sane.
Trash like you will be blocked. You need to learn to take a hint. YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE. GO AWAY AND BE WITH YOUR OWN KIND OF TRASH.
Please get some reading comprehension and some better communication skills because you come across as whiny and self entitled as you claim others to be. You're pathetic.
You're full of it. I am from Napa California, I have gotten nothing but aloha and support from everyone I've met. People don't like you FOR A REASON. YOU'RE TRASH.
people like you deserve to be treated exactly like the trash you are. No one needs trash like you in their business, ruining their company and their reputation. NO ONE WANTS PEOPLE LIKE YOU RUNNING THEIR BUSINESS AND YOU'RE SURPRISED. If you don't like the BI then GTFO. You're not wanted or welcome here. Trash.
call 1-800- you-R-trash and maybe you'll find out that no one cares what you think and we're all better off when you kill yourself and save the world from your willful ignorance and self delusion.
a guy robs a bank in Pahoa with a knife,and is set free...no bail.this guys steals a truck,and his bail is 300,000 dollars...will some one tell a dumb guy like me,where is the justice in this.....
***Come on troub, why you calling me a crepidarian? Anything I have discussed here, prior, now, or in the future, will be from actual experience, or something I take the time to study unlike 99% of other commenters. If you take a minute, how many other people that write comments here could keep up with us without giving up the first round? It is ok if you give a little and realize my opinions are based on professional judgments, achieved from varied occupational and personal life experiences. And yes, I do like to criticize anyone that fails to research, or has first hand knowledge of a subject they pick to talk about.
