Re: House to Hear Bill That Would Prohibit Bump Stocks
Posted by Mahukaawenui on 2/20/2018 11:59pm

Good grief. I've got 2 slidefire stocks, one never installed. They waste ammo and make no sense for self defense but hey they sure are fun so now looks like I'm about to be legislated into being a criminal.

The wind turbines are an eyesore and have no benefits to anyone, it actually cost us more to just look at them, similar to The Rail to nowhere. One scam after another . Where are the tax cuts benefits that we are supposed to be getting on our electric bill, no such thing will happen unless we get out there and vote these vultures out of office

Not aware that we have bump stocks in Hawaii, we don't have snakes but we do have a handful of dumb politicians demanding that we all March instep. Instead of supporting a travel ban that will bring nothing but misery and Terror to our state they come up with these hairbrained ideas most notably when they run out of ways to raise our taxes.

They all agreed to the clean water act but they still dumping polluted water into our ocean. And I did not vote for that to be done. They are not my mayors

Re: Nine Kayakers Caught in Storm off Olowalu on Sunday
Posted by I didn't say on 2/20/2018 10:47am

The weather was CLEARLY posted and aired over tv and radio that day and previous days as the afternoon in Olowalu would change to thunderstorms with lighting, down pours and high winds.
Kayaking owner(s) decided f the tourists get the cash so long as the tour time has passed we don’t have to refund any money. Greedy like you would build out of waterproof sign board a waterproof cabinet for outdoors and use fine thread drywall screws in wood instead of the corse threaded stainless steel screws as listed in the speciations. Get the money first!

Climate change is real, but just not in the way you've been brainwashed to think it is.

Thank you so much for sharing the info with me. Hopefully the next time someone is abusing the dolphins or whales they will report the person and something will be done. You have made the information available

The article says the "Upcountry man" left the woman to fend for herself. What kind of chickenshit jackass would leave his lady friend kayaking in the ocean out in a storm and just paddle away to save himself?

Re: Search Underway for Missing Kayaker off Maui

There is a severe shortage of enforcement officers. Here are a few ways to report people who violate the sanctuary rules, abuse wildlife, etc.:

To reach the NOAA Office of Law Enforcement, call the 24hr toll-free hotline at (800) 853-1964.

To reach the DLNR Division of Conservation and Resource Enforcement, call the Maui office directly at (808) 873-3990 or the State Hotline at 643-DLNR(3567).

Also an email address: (respectwildlife@noaa.gov)

If she had been spotted so many times harassing dolphins and whales why didn't they report her?
Also, apparently she spends a lot of money as a part time tourist and a part time resident

The kayak company that ran that tour should have their permit to run tours pulled. The forecasts were clear that bad weather was out there and could happen at any time. Tourists are trusting the expertise of the kayak company, yet this group chose to ignore the forecasts because they didn't want to give up the money.

The same thing happened a few years ago when a boat went out to Molokini when storm warnings were up and a person died.

Glad no one was hurt.....
The conversation might go like this:
Thank you for carelessly leaving food cooking unattended and burning up the house......that’s great.

Re: Search Underway for Missing Kayaker off Maui

That's the same tourist woman who is always harassing the whales in the Maui sanctuary. She comes over from the mainland and has been seen many times chasing down whales and dolphins in her kayak. Then she jumps into the water to swim with them, take videos, etc. You're not supposed to do that because it interferes with the whales' normal social behaviors. Not a scientist, just a tourist. She is obviously a careless person that disregards safety and other rules. One or more of the life saving personnel could have been injured or lost their life rescuing this thoughtless individual who believes that rules don't apply to her. Such rescues cost a lot of $ for Hawaii tax payers. The reckless tourist should be required to foot the bill and pay a stiff fine.

Re: Keynote Announced for 2018 Maui Energy Conference
Posted by John Sundance on 2/19/2018 7:30am

Another nonprofit with a money-making scam! The Mayor appointed Fredrick Redell Maui's new Energy Commissioner so I called The energy department about 2013 statutes 196-7 energy resources regarding kool roof they never heard of it and Redell was off Island. White Kool roofs are the best way to save energy they are a roofing system that saves $18K thousand re-roofing because it is not the roof that needs replacing it is the surface. It cool's the house 15% and the roof 50% and saves 3 tones of asphalt, fiberglass and urea formaldehyde from land fill. The dangerously incompetent Associations like Waiehu Terrace are trying to stop kool roofs costing home owners $18K for a new roof $400 a month electricity and $20k for solar panels because they do not like the color. So this will be a lot more non-profit conference noise wasting our money.
