Is it possible to learn when the Windward Dog Park will open to the public? I have accessed the website of the The Windward Dog Park Organization and found it hasn't been updated for six months and e-mail messages left go unanswered. This is such a wonderful project that is eagerly being anticipated by the entire community of dog lovers.

Hey, No Name. Get a life and move on. Everybody breaks traffic laws. Just honk your horn and forget about it. You jobless or something?

General Excise tax is one of the most unfair tax to impose. Hawaii is the only State to impose it.

E.G. You have to pay GET on any rent you pay to landlord. You don't have to pay GET on any mortgage payment. Sticking it to the working man big time.

Finally someone else besides me got burned by the Walgreen(WAG) scam. Whenever they price an item that says two cans of mixed nuts for six dollars, you have better buy two. Because if you buy just one can, it is not half of six bucks. It is one can for $3.49. Nothing wrong with this. It's just that we are not use to experiencing this in any other store except WAG. So bring your reading glasses and read the price twice.

I saved big when I printed a Prescription Discount Card and used it. It's reusable and I can use for my dog too. Most pharamcies take it. My savings range from 10-80% off regular prices. Many counties throughout the US are using it in some form or another. www.nationalprescriptiondiscounts.com . I wonder why healthcare refom folks haven't caught on to this? It's free to have and free to use.
