NONE of the Maui residents would have ever signed off on what has happened to our island home, we have been sold out by politicians and bureaucrats at the state and local level for their greed,,,
The promise of jobs being servants for tourist in most cases is not enough of a carrot to get people to go along with that, in reality these bureaucrats hold the hearings and then do whatever they want that will benefit them the most,,,

I am deeply sorry, Heidi. Now I wish I had said nothing... Condolences to you and his family. Always sad to hear of one of our water family pass...or anyone for that matter. Aloha..

We also feel like it was a bad dream and wish we didn’t have to leave that night. If there is any consolation, please know that we are taking on this cause and making sure that people we know and love are well educated about the new types of snorkel masks that are out there these days. Since Bryan’s accident I have done a lot of reading and see tbat there are potential CO2 complications. Who could possibly know? Even experienced swimmers and and snorkelers. Hugs Heidi xo

Thank you Rhonda. It has been a difficult weekend for sure. Lots and lots of people loved Bryan so there has been tons of support but still so hard and wishing it were a bad dream.

Okay Robin
Where’s the Millions in my pocket to not ever visit the beach. I would not agree to that nor was there any agreement from the Citizens of Hawaii drafted to allow hotels exclusive rights to beaches and citizens to relinquish their rights of occupation. Robin you must be from another country or state am I correct?

Remember, these are the same people that voted against returning your tax dollars, that predicted the end of the world of tax reform passed. Think trump is a racist and sexist although minority unemployment is now at an all time low. Actually what have they gotten right?

Now at our own state legislation.. what are they focused on? Taxes and regulation. Just a rerun of the last 65 years. Want higher cost of living, lower wages, higher unemployment, per education.. well, darn, let's just keep electing the same people... With all the empty promises

I do want to say that the man from Oakland, my best friend was not of of the "yeah, yeah, yeah...I'm so smart and too proud to listen to your silly information." He was an experienced swimmer, a prior lifeguard and was not a 1st time snorkeler.

The one consolation right now is that we were enjoying a great time in Maui and he was doing something that he enjoyed doing.

Both of these Senators are a disgrace, but Hirono is shameless too because she maintains the lie about CHIP. The Republicans reauthorized CHIP for 6 years but Hirono and Schatze voted against it. Hypocrites. They both sold their souls for the sake of illegal votes. In an election, that's called cheating.

We know how and what HAWAII is and what HAWAII needs. So, what are the plans what you going do, how you going to do it?????? How...... that's the question.

Thats a start, now push the house to release that memo on DOJ and FBI corruption unless you want to lose all relevancy and respect, oh wait a minute, you will get none anyway

The only person denying science here is you. So why indemnify big pharma? You seem to be stalking vaccine related articles.

I was expecting a proposal to loosen campaign spending reporting rules...

No mention of affordable housing?

TAT is this low probability goal that Maui elected officials always want to talk about. When I close my eyes and imagine what TAT looks like, I keep visualizing a herring, that is reddish in color.

Oh, and just to add: We have many more visitors coming these years. Far more than in the past, and these tragedies were not reported so readily before. More visitors means more deaths, and now that we are reporting every incident, it will seem more dramatic.
-But death while snorkeling and other issues have been going on since the beginning...

Re: California Visitor Pulled Unresponsive from South Maui Waters
Posted by Jayboy from Makena on 1/22/2018 3:21am

It's an interesting trend. Primarily older tourists, with heart and other health issues is the issue. I wouldn't blame the masks or be "outraged". This past year or two we have had a different type of tourist consumer, compared to previous years. Many more guests than normal are opting for lower-ticket(cheap) thrills, like snorkeling, during the last couple busy seasons. Snorkeling puts stresses on the body systems that are more significant than people realize. And honestly, the consumer is ultimately responsible for his/her health and safety, not the vender. The consumer should ask the vender if there are potential risks. We are here to make money off you, and you are here to have a good time. So we try to meet you in the middle with good info on how to be safe and maximize fun.
We are always trying to educate the guests, but many of them are of the mindset like "yeah, yeah, yeah...I'm so smart and too proud to listen to your silly information." Really nothing to see here, except it should be common sense that you should check with your physician before trying new things when you are older. Your body may not be into it. And yes, there should be a short video on every plane which discusses the risks of adventure in Hawaii...followed by a hold-harmless release form, so that we(state/county/local businesses/locals) cannot be sued for what happens to you in our natural features/environments, while you are visiting...

Are the gods angry??!! I just DON'T understand all of these snorkeling deaths! I taught snorkeling and sailing for 15 years in the Caribbean. Never had one casualty never even heard of a casualty. Something has to be done about the frequency of these every week snorkeling deaths in Maui. There should be outrage. Okay I'm going to say it again. every single flight that comes into Hawaii should have a water safety film that is mandatory for all visitors to watch. This is just ridiculous.

The vendors should stay on private property. They should only put a chair or umbrella on the public beach once someone has rented it and is ready to plop their okole in it. They shouldn't be allowed to place a row of chairs and umbrellas on the public beach to "reserve" the space ahead of time. Once the person who rented the chair has left, the vendor should remove the items from the beach immediately.

Access is determined and enforced by State, not Federal, laws (aside from Federal lands). Knowing what you're talking about would go a long way... :)
