  • Re: Emergency Road Work: Temporary Closure of South Kīhei RoadPosted by Noajorspanos on 10/24/2016 1:49pm

    The worst part was they closed off s kihei road on the south end and sewage crews were cleaning out the overflow a couple hundred yards north. We were trapped for 20 minutes until we snuck through Kamaole Sands parking lot. I bet a bunch of people were sitting there for a lot longer.

    Did anyone proof-read this article? The first sentence of most paragraphs is a repeat of the last sentence of the previous paragraph. Was this written by a robot? Hiccup? Deja Vu?

    "Efforts are ongoing, although no specific date has been mentioned at this time."

    In other words: "Don't hold your breath while waiting for something to be done about this."

    Reef sharks often work in small groups.
    This could have been more than one shark.
    Who saw the shark or sharks?
    I hope he is healing well.

    If we had the same laws as Texas and Florida you can just pull out your "say hello to my little friend" and protect yourself.

  • Re: Ask the Mayor: Why are Empty County Recycling Bins Locked?Posted by Frustrated in Kihei on 10/23/2016 3:00pm

    Yeah, that sounds about right. Don't address the real problem of no available bins and put the blame on the consumers trying to recycle. Accept no blame- blame others! That's our mayor!

  • Re: Shark Attack Reported at Ho‘okipaPosted by Your Living Body on 10/23/2016 5:54am

    What is the point of a shark warning advisory? It's so reactive rather than pro-active. This is what years of green sea turtle release programs get you. Hellooooo!? Increase the food source and more predators will come. Same thing in California with the sea lion/seal population explosion.

    Here's a great idea.... on your property build a dog trap and if you catch one of the dogs or all on YOUR PROPERTY then call the humane society to come and pick up the stray dog/s.
    There's a good chance that your neighbors dogs don't have any tags.
    And if your neighbor trys to come on to your property to get his dog/s the tell him that he is not to trespass or you'll call the police for trespassing. And let your neighbor take care of the fine/s for unleashed or whatever else he gets cited for.
    And if you did what I said... from that day forward DON'T SHOW your neighbor any weakness nor you're afraid of him. Stand your grounds use the law and be stronger then him.
    "FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE" I always say......
    Or here's another saying...... "BE A BIGGER @$$HOLE THEN THE @$$HOLE YOU'RE DEALING WITH"......

    Note: this is just a suggestion. If it works, good for you. IF to don't work , OH WELL........

    Always surf at crowded spots, that way the odds are with you.

  • Re: Shark Attack Reported at Ho‘okipaPosted by Glen Folkard - Shark Survivor on 10/22/2016 4:30am

    Haha..the "National Monument" marine park is the primary issue here, Swimming in pairs wont make any difference whatsoever. 40 years of shark 'protection' since JAWS is the secondary issue. Go out at Pipe with the heavy crowd might help. Though the rad will get you either way. Surfing is finished.

  • Re: Ask the Mayor: What Can Be Done About Roaming Dog Pack?Posted by Stand Alone on 10/22/2016 3:05am

    Just call the police and make a police report. Then call the humane society and make a complaint. Then call the dog owner and tell him to pickup his dog that you accidentally ran over it with your car.

    LOL..... That must be fun....

  • Re: Shark Attack Reported at Ho‘okipaPosted by Stand Alone on 10/22/2016 2:36am

    Hope the guy a fast recovery.
    THIS is a really good example of swimming or surfing with the buddy buddy system and or with others around. IF it was not for the other surfers helping him back to shore he would have a lesser chance of surviving or worse.
    Just a friendly reminder, the whale season is back and the sharks are much more active and more aggressive during this time. And also the weather also is a factor in in the sharks behavior.
    Be careful. .......

    MAUI NOW - By your own popularity ranking you have a hot issue here. Please do a background story. Who promoted this legilsation, could it possibly have been a service vendor, which Council Committee passed it?

  • Re: Investigative Report on Maui Housing Inventory Includes “Tiny Home” OptionsPosted by nomakelidat on 10/20/2016 6:19am

    "Allow accessory or affordable accessory dwellings on smaller lots." Key sentence as far as I'm concerned.

    pepper spray.....or a more lethal tool. And maybe some cracks for the dog owner, but it's probably some big moke so better bring your A game.

  • Re: Maui Hospital Seeks $5.65 M to Mitigate Issues Related to DelayPosted by Mauiday on 10/19/2016 9:08am

    The stated purpose of this meeting was "patient safety and quality of care". The suggested remedies put forth during the meeting, in my opinion, fall short of bringing the patient safety and quality of care up to industry standards that the people of Maui deserve.
    It was stated there are 400 vacancies or 25% if the work force. Their remedy is hiring 55 more nurses at an additional cost to Hawaii taxpayers of $2.65 million. So how does 55 compensate for 400??? And if there are 400 vacancies then there should be plenty of money not being paid out to cover for 55 positions. Why then is the administration asking for $2.65 million MORE tax payer's money???
    Wes Lo and Barry Shitamoto state they are having a hard time recruiting new hires (nurses and doctors). Hence the 400 vacancies. So how will having an additional $5.65 million magically fix the recruiting difficulty??? Are they planning to offer higher than normal salaries to attract new hires??? If so, how would that affect the morale of those nurses already working there, to see that the new hires getting paid more than them??? Will the new doctors hired be Kaiser employee doctors??? And will they not be competing with doctors in the same field in private community based practices??? How is that fair to the many doctors that have served our community all these years to now be competing with a state of Hawaii backed corporate giant like Kaiser???
    Another suggestion was to use more (student) nurses in training programs to staff the shifts and have them supervised by the spread out experienced staff. Is this how you ensure safety and quality of care????
    This meeting did nothing to address the morale issue of the remaining workers and there was no invitation for these workers to give their input. If the hospital staff are always running short staff, over worked, seeing temp workers coming in and being paid more, and hearing their union being blamed for the hospital woes, how can that be good for morale. Morale of the work force is crucial in delivering safety and quality of care.
    An audit should have been done of the hospital's finances, management, and quality of care/hospital operation as soon as the financial problems became chronic (years ago.) A mini fast track audit should be done now!!!
    The legislators are trying to get recommendations from the same administrative team that sunk the hospital into the red in the first place. Do the mini fast track audit BEFORE giving any more tax payers money out.
