Tropical Storm Oho Not Expected to Become Hurricane
We can't take hurricane preparedness for granted...Hawaii has been relatively lucky over the years but you never know when the luck might run out. Mahalo to Tulsi and the emergency management leaders for taking the time to hold this town hall.
Raising gas prices during hurricane season seems very irresponsible. But then again that's what Demorats do. That's the whole reason trump is president. The people are tired of our lying politicians. Harry Kim is NOT for the people. He's for his pocket book.
Ole L Moore back to bit*hing like an old woman. You are truly a buzzkill you whiny old f**k. One of those peeps who spends his whole life complaining, but never does anything about it. Go back under your rock.
***Don't you just love it when some one like ol' Tulsi, has a big deal happen like this. It was all some talking for a few minutes, a little news time, some back slapping and it is over and forgotten today. How in the heck can their recommendation be new? That info has been around for 50 years and simple common sense.
****Cuts to FEMA? I used to be a federal protective guard for them and they are a joke. A little flood in northern Oregon back about 2007 and they sent in about 50 specialists to manage the incident. They took pictures, had meetings, talked, went back for more pictures and did a few little things like make a tiny parking area for a few trailers for displaced people. I heard some of them walking around talking on their cells to their wives and saying, I quote: "I don't want to be here either, but I am only doing it for the big bucks ." They sweep into an area after a disaster, make a splash in the news, make themselves look big and important and then leave like an evening shadow.
How does he still have a business license after this? Amazes me more and more, each and every year, how much "island people" disrespect this island. The amount of trash that you can find at "locals" beaches, and pull outs, speaks volumes on the upbringing of the island youth.
Krause family like go jail all the time
How can that be possible when the earth is only 10,000 years old according to the Bible? Fake news!
Nice, kids can't learn if they are uncomfortable. Plus, it adds new jobs. Thanks David
Would have to see the requirements in her probation papers if she has to get a job or not. Who is going to hire her? I guarantee, there are thousands defrauding the Human services depts., the SNAP program, rent subsidies, and more. Each case is different, because of different investigators, different prosecutors, different counties, different judges, different amounts, goes on and on. Too many people think the system works, but is so big, that being fallible is rampant.
Well, all those real estate agents and "investors" have really driven up the prices here in Puna and everywhere. They make the money and most of it leaves the islands.
So is that what you have going on?
If she declares no "income" does she still have to pay money every month?
What about the next person that defrauds the STATE?
Do they get the same slap on the wrist?
Is this Justice?
Wow - what a precedent (aka "example") to set for anyone else who is going to lie about witnessing a murder and keeping silent for 10 years.
And how about if someone does something that there is no victim and they get denied bail 5 times in 4 years?
Where is the Justice in this?
And how will it hinder the next human from doing such a crime?
I would like to support the County Council's initiative to allow Community Farmer's Markets at all of out Public Parks, these are on a permit basis and are to support local small plot farmers to sell their excess produce and crafts
I think this is more the problem, calling people names and thinking you will get any reasonable response... Being positive and approaching issues from the solution side instead of starting off on the negative would go a long ways in getting problems addressed..
If the Mayor and his staff are that hard to deal with, why is there only one complaint..? I have spoken with the Mayor and found him to be open and engaging, willing to discuss and deal with problems...
Unfortunately Aaron, that is the true Harry Kim and his staff. You, like many of us, have experienced a side of this administration that most are only now seeing. Harry and his loser staff are all the same, and as much as you try to complain he will get upset and put up more restrictions. Why don't you call your friend lazy Joe Kamelamela for help? Just walk into the council room and wake him up.
I for one, Opposed the rail to fail from it's very Inception. I knew this project would be a very Bad idea & I could see the cost Increasing every step of the way. This project was Literally Shoved down our throats & Now we see the Obvious. WE, Tax payers, are going to be Paying for the rail.
I recall the early discussions on this rail to fail where an engineer with Experience in this type of project, asked if any one had looked at Alternatives before Committing the State to rail, & he stated an Alternative that really made Good Sense to me. It might not be too late to Examine, at least his Ideas.
ON a different Note in this article, Mr. Bond mentions the - I've never heard it before, term "Kings Tides". What is that ? Is it someones invention term regarding the Global Warming, Climate Changing, Residual Effects of the Worlds Countries & their governments Ignoring the "Truth", & Now the Truth has Reared it's Ugly head so that We can no longer Ignore It ?! Again I say - It may not be too late *
Well ...... I am quite surprised to read this article by Mr. Stene & his experience with Mayor Kim & his Administration. There is the other side of this I would like to hear from. How about it Mayor Kim & DPW Frank DeMarco ? Would both give us your side ?
The name calling is so revealing. Thinking 5th grade might be a re-do this year.
Awesome to read that there is still some hope in stopping rapid ohia death. Such a beautiful tree filled with uses and Hawaiian legends and amazing qualities not commonly found in other tree's. The first three to grow on a lava field, exclusive honey from the lehua flower, can survive lava flows, can put its roots in the sky over the ground if need be... I can go on and on...
And the Frog said. COQUI
The following chart will show you that over the past 460 million yrs. the ave. temp. has always been between 72 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit.
Study: Climate 460 MYA was like today, with CO2 levels 5-20 *TIMES HIGHER* than today's 400ppm's and average.

Note: If anything....it is the Geoengineering Aerosol Chemical Spraying that's causing all the heat build up - and toxins in the troposphere.
(on the mainland as last I saw) Fact.
There is no moral obligation to provide medical insurance; medical insurance, if you want it, is YOUR responsibility
