Re: The Pros and Cons of Living on Hawai‘i Island
Posted by lisat on 10/13/2017 10:04am

My eyes nearly popped out when I read that we're racist! I rarely hear that truth! Tho my grparents came in 1907, my father was born and raised in Kaimuki and I spent my babyhood on Kailua beach...I constantly had to deal with racism in Hilo. I'd have to go thru my life story (necessary to get a job, get ahead, be respected, be trusted, etc) before they'd say "oh yeah, you look Korean. Now that you mention it....I can see it". Stupid ppl. My sister didn't set foot here till she was 10 but bcs she looks Korean and her name is Hwn. she's instantly accepted. I'm grateful for all the experiences bcs now I know what racism feels like. Racism isn't confined to the mainland. It's in the minds of sick people. What is troubling is the kids that are hating on non-Hawaiians. Their language and disrespect is shocking. They have to be getting this from somewhere cuz an 8yr old wouldn't think up this stuff on his own. Parent's make a loving home for your kids. Teach them respect for all life.

I'm thinking the writer meant no cheap state run rubbish . Sure anyone can hire private service.

THEY SHOULD BAN RUBBER BANDS BECAUSE YOU CAN GET THE SAME RESULT WITH THEM? WHERE IS THE COVERAGE ON THE OTHER SHOOTERS TO THIS INCIDENT? THERE ARE VIDEOS OF MULTIPLE SHOOTERS FOR THIS AND NO ONE IS SAYING A THING IN THE MEDIA??

A mostly good article but this bit "There is no rubbish pickup except in Hilo and Kona proper." isn't true. I'm in Ainaloa and neighbors have been getting regular and affordable trash pickup for years from private companies. I choose to haul my own trash to the transfer station but there is more than one company that hauls trash in Puna.

Also, the "Puna is the wild west" comment is hyperbole based on old reputation. Yes, there is crime but that's true of the entire island, especially vehicle theft. But the Puna district has been getting much better the last few years.

Re: ROAD WORK: Parts of Shower Dr and Pohauku Dr to Close Oct. 7-8
Posted by metalman808 on 10/7/2017 3:19am

They should of put the traffic light at kaloli. There's way more traffic coming out of kaloli and makuu than at shower. Now everybody is gonna cut through HPP to get to shower because traffic will be backed up heavy when light turns red on morning and afternoon traffic. I hope there not going to have that bottle neck right before the traffic light. That would be insanity. And poor planning.

Re: Bamboo: the Most Useful Plant in the World
Posted by vet2640 on 10/4/2017 2:48pm

Bamboo, if anyone have visited China, check out the scaffolding on high-rises, “BAMBOO”, not steel, would I get on the scaffolding?, NO, I trust the bamboo, but not the person who tied it together.

Puleeze! Let's have some common sense here. I have seen airlines refuse to allow a passenger on a flight who appeared or acted intoxicated. If this guy raised flags before boarding, why not refuse to allow him to board. No. Instead the airline was too concerned that it might look bad in view of other previous incidents when passengers who were not acting weird or drunk, who simply were an inconvenience to an overbooked flight, were dragged off by police! Common sense could have avoided this and other scary and costly incidents.

Haha, you must have one of those social disabilities.. let me guess, old saggy balled conservative...I’m smart, never had children. That’s why I’m retired before 50 you mental giant.

Some people who should never reproduce themselves
often have the most offspring. Newsflash: the public dole allotment
for each successive child goes DOWN, not up. A heads-up for those
who for all these years thought they were boosting their incomes.

Do some homework before doing all that indiscriminate reproduction.

Re: Hawai‘i Schools Celebrate Farm to School Week
Posted by John Brown on 10/2/2017 4:30am

I'd love to eat more local healthy foods, but the costs, as any foods here, are astronomical.

Re: Hawai‘i Schools Celebrate Farm to School Week
Posted by mauisurfer on 10/1/2017 2:23pm

Hawaii public schools do NOT eat food that schools grow.
Few schools grow food, and those that do are NOT ALLOWED to eat it in their cafeterias.
Schools are teaching students to be consumers, not gardeners.
Wake up Hawaii, wake up Gov. Ige.
