    I think all the intelligent, sane people on this island realize who needs the drama. It's the only way for a small group of uneducated people to get their voice heard. I don't create drama, but I will call people out on it when they create it...let's just keep on muddling forward on this island...people complaining that there are no opportunities for "local" people..it's called biting the hand that feeds you. Once some people lose the chip on their shoulder, they will realize this island is full of "opportunities".

    Huh?...anybody who is that specific obviously has experience....your point is moot

    Did you remember to take your Aricept today ?
    You are answering your own questions.

    Hoo ka le'a le'a, Pohaku, nice touch.

    A certain individual is demonstating chronic agitation,
    chronic outbursts on a daily basis for months now !

    Come back in for a med adjustment, Mistah B.

    so how exactly did the first "Hawaiian" find these islands? I don't think google maps was available then. I do agree about taking care of the planet. Shoot, I wish the locals would start with this island and respect it by not littering..every time I go to the beach I see trash, and disrespect of this island. Sure, I wish there was a magic wand to go back in time, but it ain't gonna happen..some people live in the past and some look to the future. I'll look to the future...I want to know what's out there.

    Nice try about saying kanaka got direction from the stars lol The USA has only been around for 241 years and already bankrupt, financially and morally. Kanaka were more then looking at the stars. We were also able to live sustainable for 2000 years by taking care of our lands and water. We have a strong bond with ke akua. Unlike you we care about the earth. I want to be able to live sustainable for another 2000 years, we just got to get rid of the boils (State of Hawaii) and get back to caring for our planet again.

    i think your meds need to be reworked...what does church have to do with anything...last time I checked, Hawaiians weren't Christian 300 years ago. Hawaiians navigated by the stars, Hawaiians looked to the sky for direction. Churches are for weak minded people who need direction they can't figure out on their own...but, good attempt at making a point.

  • Re: Thirty Meter Telescope Completes $1M Donation to THINK FundPosted by Pohaku Keaau on 9/21/2017 3:56pm

    I have been on the Mauna 10 times. All ten time I said a pule at the bottom, the middle and at the top. I have seen others worshipping on 8 of those occasions. Here is a hint. Go to an ahu. There is one right behind the visitors center. So if I don't see you at the gas station does that mean you have no gas in your car? lol There are 365 days a year. 20 days? hahahahahaaa Now who is being difficult and being a drama queen lol BTW do you go to church? Believe in God? I go by churches everyday and I still have not seen you there

  • Re: Thirty Meter Telescope Completes $1M Donation to THINK FundPosted by Pohaku Keaau on 9/21/2017 3:28pm

    Well are you going to the Canary Islands? lol

  • Re: Thirty Meter Telescope Completes $1M Donation to THINK FundPosted by Pohaku Keaau on 9/21/2017 3:27pm

    You have no clue who is doing the drama. What if I stole your home, beat your kids, bulldozed your church, and made you homeless? Would you be easy going about it? Or would you fight for what is yours?

  • Re: Thirty Meter Telescope Completes $1M Donation to THINK FundPosted by Lil B on 9/21/2017 3:07pm

    Can't wait for the tmt....I've been to the summit probably 20 times in the last 10 years...not once have I ever seen someone "worshiping" at this "sacred" spot. It's just people wanting to be difficult and enjoying the drama..

  • Re: Thirty Meter Telescope Completes $1M Donation to THINK FundPosted by Pohaku Keaau on 9/21/2017 11:33am

    Is it proper etiquette for the Thirty Meter Telescope to offer money to educate Hawaiian children then destroy their sacred temple? We on the other want to protect our sacred Mountain so that these children will have a place to worship as they feel fit to.

  • Re: Ernest Caravalho Announces Run for GovernorPosted by Realitystrikes96778 on 9/21/2017 10:30am

    Of course, this is exciting and everything, but what specifically is the guy proposing to do to fulfill his "themes"? Hawaii doesn't need themes. It's need some solid plans and follow through.

  • Re: Thirty Meter Telescope Completes $1M Donation to THINK FundPosted by Susan Rosier on 9/21/2017 5:22am

    Awww still THINK throwing money at the community will sway the BLNR vote ... hmmm mahalo for all the donations you want to give on your way to your new location , Adios Amigos!

  • Re: TMT Hearing: KAHEA Calls for Recusal of 2 BLNR MembersPosted by Lil B on 9/21/2017 5:04am

    A culture so proud of traditions and heritage, that Walmart is packed 24/7.....a culture so proud of their traditions and heritage that the beaches are littered with trash, cigarette butts, and broken glass....a culture so proud of traditions and heritage that we are number one in property crimes...the only culture and tradition that is being created on this island is diabetes and EBT cards..some people need attention, and if negative attention is all they can get, then that will do. Wasn't the dumba** who put "bones" on top of the mountain, a convicted felon? The telescope will bring opportunities to the island...something all the so called "natives" bitc* about. You're not gonna find any opportunities sitting in the front yard drinking Pepsi, and smoking weed. Celestial navigation is how these islands were found, this is an extension of that. Give me a break about it being "sacred", if it was, there wouldn't be litter all the way from Hilo to kona along the saddle road.

    You want opportunities for the future keiki? Then let the schools benefit from the money infused into this island. Quit moaning about there are no opportunities...this is it, seize it.

  • Re: TMT Hearing: KAHEA Calls for Recusal of 2 BLNR MembersPosted by great disconformity on 9/20/2017 4:23pm

    The most telling statement made at the hearing was the softly mumbled '...astronomers are people too...' made by the TMT representative. That simple, brutal fact seems to have escaped everyone else in the room.
    We were regaled for hours by a small handful of extremists wearing interesting costumes about the 'heartbreak' of having the rock pile it took an hour to make removed, or having to look at a 'desecrated mountain' from your lawn chair while thinking of your many grandkids, or how the 'energy lines' among rocks would be disturbed, etc. etc. No one mentioned the plight of indebted young scientists who have spent much of their adult life dedicated to penniless study, only to find that it was for nothing because of someone's afternoon spent piling rocks, or their idea that anyone who sets foot on their personal 'sacred mountain' is 'desecrating' it. Some Hawaiians with a political agenda are certainly annoyed and angry. But what of others who have dedicated their lives to a high spiritual calling that will be taken away because of that ? They are people too. Good people. Decent people. Spiritual people. To them, Albert Einstein was a prophet. The Real Deal.
    Maunakea is a big mountain. If it is truly sacred, then its Aloha is infinite and inexhaustible. There is room for all. All must approach in awe and respect, but no one need be turned away. Those who would turn others away have an agenda that is not spiritual. There is no Aloha in it. Without Aloha, Maunakea is not sacred. Without Aloha, Maunakea is a 13,802' pile of construction gravel.
    Antifa wannabes in Hawaii are not the only people who feel a spiritual connection to Maunakea. Astronomers are not godless robots without 'traditions'. They are no less human than Hawaiians. Their interests are no less human or worthy.

  • Re: TMT Hearing: KAHEA Calls for Recusal of 2 BLNR MembersPosted by Lester M. Klungness on 9/20/2017 2:44pm

    Dr. Sam Gon is one of best native Hawaiian environmentalist in Hawaii. Graduate of UC Davis, long time director of Nature Conservancy. You would be crazy to eliminate him from the State Board of Land and Natural Resource. Additionally, Stanley Roehrig has done more to return land rights to the Hawaiian people than any other Lawyer in Hawaii. Sounds like sower grapes on the part of Dexter Kalama. I hope Hawaiian Environmental Alliance is not so short sighted as to take these two strongest advocates for Hawaiians off the BLNR over this one issue.

  • Re: Kea‘au Woman Arrested on Drug OffensesPosted by Stephen on 9/20/2017 7:24am

    Why we allow this here I don’t understand . This human is the lowest form hopefully she grows old in prison and can no longer poison our young.

  • Re: ‘I‘iwi Receives Protection Under Endangered Species ActPosted by Lil B on 9/19/2017 6:25am

    Damn liberals and their "environmental" ways...why bother protecting wildlife, we are just slowly killing the earth anyways...next thing u know, the government will tell me what sunscreen I can wear to stop poisoning the coral reefs...kill what u want to, take what's left and bleed it...

    I need me some of that jazz cabbage you been smokin....

  • Re: Drought Report: 90.65% of State Abnormally Dry or DrierPosted by Dariusthehedgehog180california on 9/19/2017 2:21am

    100% caused by HAARP and Chemtrailing. Global warming is not real. They change the climate.

  • Re: LETTER: Digging Deeper Into Hawai‘i Island’s Well FailuresPosted by Lil B on 9/18/2017 8:32am

    Yep...this is exactly what happens when you hire by last name. Personally I'm overqualified for some of the positions, but the low pay and bulls*it that goes with county jobs, keeps me from applying. It's not rocket science to keep a well up and running....

  • Re: Reyn Spooner Releases Limited Volcano Park ShirtsPosted by jobagangles on 9/17/2017 10:08am

    Reyn's is "Hawaii based company?" Not anymore. Primary ownership is in California today and the only staff left here are retail clerks. Most staff laid off last month. Is this shirt even made in Hawaii?
