Tour company president carries on a tradition = Foreigner continues to foster un-sustainable practice of TOURISM - exploiting Hawai`i's natural environment.

Cheryl Chee Tsutsumi, could you please write about someone that is NOT based on exposing & raping our natural resources by greedy PROFITEERS, like MAGGIE BROWN of LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA – that continue to destroy our “backyard” in the sole pursuit of more & more AMERICAN DOLLARS?

You named your column Hawai`i's backyard - yet, you CHOOSE to write about a person and a business-model that is dependent on the trafficking of TOURISTS into a fragile eco-system - further polluting the visual, auditory & natural environment with their mere presence?

My grandparents taught us to take care of the people and place that is our "backyard" – One day, hopefully we in Hawai`i can make better decisions to take care of our home - for EVERYONE - not just TOURISTS or those that can afford the $87.

Tell you what, "Read Between the Lines," why don't you go out and find some Hawaiians who have thriving businesses on the Big Island, do some research on them, write some articles and sell them to the Star Bulletin??? If you don't like the subject of the article, then you do some research, write about what YOU think should be published in the newspaper and pitch it to them. See if you an write well enough to have the Star Bulletin buy what you write. Otherwise, shut up.
At least Maggie Brown of Long Beach has a thriving business in Hawaii and is generating much needed tax revenue in this economic downturn. What are YOU doing to help the economy?

I wonder if this was a phone interview, This lady is as money grabbing as any californian I doubt she ever sets foot to sea or gives a hoot about the coast or its inhabitants. What a joke
