Turtle Bay buyout surprises developer

No, No and NO! I do not want my tax money spent on North Shore Real Estate. I'm sorry, Govenor you had some other great ideas, in your State of the State speech, but this one I just can't agree with.  (Jan 23, 2008 | post #43)

Toddler death on H-1 freeeway

It never ceases to amaze me, how misguided our efforts are. Placing balloons and stuffed animals that pose a traffic danger. Now we have state workers there to manage the memorial, who could be doing other things Ė like their job. All for SHOW. So typical. When all this sensationalism dies down, we will all cozy up to our complacency and let things continue, status quo. Go by season tickets for the Warriors and forget to do our homework and uncover what really goes on in this state! On this very paper, for weeks the popular stories, all about Warrior Football. Number 11 in popularity after 3-4 stories relating to UH Football program was opening of the Legislature. Shows you all where OUR priorities are. The same people have been running the LEG for decades. Have things gotten better? Think about it. Housing, Education, Crime. Taxes in this state are some of the highest in the nation? Do we have the highest quality of life? Whatever happened to the WAR on drugs? Education and treatment was supposed to work wonders right? NOT! How about accountability and JAIL TIME as a deterrent? My hope is that if you really want to do something good in memorial of Cyrus Belt, keep your stuffed animals to yourself and take the advice in this article and be involved in the decision making process. What about the children in the system, now? What about our weak penalties for drug crimes, or for crime in general. Remember, Tunoa served 4 years of a 20 year sentence. Címon people, if this doesnít wake you up, I donít know what will.  (Jan 22, 2008 | post #973)

Toddler death on H-1 freeeway

I have heard of a study that states prolonged use of meth results in permanent, paranoid schizophrenia. That is a good point you bring up about how rehabilitated a person can actually be after prolonged exposure to ice.  (Jan 18, 2008 | post #246)

Toddler death on H-1 freeeway

I thought her behavior rather strange for a grieving mother when I watched this video. She was very assertive in trying to tell her side of the story. Almost deffensive, More so than grief stricken. Given, people react differently to grief. But my dear friend lost a child in an accident and I swear she wore the same tshirt for 2 days straight and didn't brush her teeth for at least 24 hours. We literally at times had to almost pick her up off the floor. This video was a little different.  (Jan 18, 2008 | post #242)

University of Hawaii cuts ties with Frazier

Nice, but don't believe we can afford Chow. Not everyone is so hell bent on coming "home" or living in paradise that they will take a cut in pay. Let's not kid ourselves.  (Jan 9, 2008 | post #110)

Should Coach Jones Go Pro or Accept SMU's Offer?

Don't be so hard on alice. Her attitudes are probably the result of some of the ultra-lib-socialis t teachers at UH. I'll bet her major is something in humanities with a minor in Feminist studies. You would not believe the crap they have you read in some of those classes. Remember, this is the same school that invited that Churchill wacko to lecture here. So letís leave alice alone and let her have her say. One day when she's all growned up and lives in the REAL WORLD with a REAL CAREER, a mortgage to pay and kids to send to college, financial planning for retirment to worry about, then those idealistic, liberal, revolutionary, conflict-seeking opinions will be a fond memory.  (Jan 4, 2008 | post #27)

Obama, Huckabee win pole positions in races

Ethnicity and Gender, I agree are history making, but I would never vote based on either. The issues are much too important in this election. I hope no one votes for someone just because they are black, just because they are a woman, or just because they are from Hawaii (As many locals will do, I'm pretty sure). Don't vote for someone because they are charismatic or because that is who your union tells you to vote for. Do some homework. Then..... Vote for the candidate that best represents your PERSONAL, your ECONOMIC, and your COMMUNITY values. What a concept!  (Jan 4, 2008 | post #47)

'Paperless' firecrackers selling big in Hawaii

Why even have rules and laws if they are not enforced? What a joke. The fireworks antics fueled by alcohol consumption (hate to say it, but mostly by adult males) has become so bad on new Years Eve that my family will stay home this year. Last year when returning home from a friends house, an intoxicated guest of one of my neighbors proceeded to throw lit fireworks on and under my moving vehicle. My 2 children were in the car. It was startling and dangerous. What a shame that the danger outweighs the desire to be with family and friends.  (Dec 28, 2007 | post #46)

Up next: Protesting tourists

There is nothing wrong with tourists who come, spend their money, take some photos and LEAVE. Poor Kauai. Maybe they should take their heartfelt protests to the polls. After all, it is their own elected officials that allow development to continue.  (Dec 28, 2007 | post #6)

Hawaii, New Orleans have lots in common

I think that even a 7th grader knows that unability is not a word. Try inability. Your posts are not only ignorant in content, they are written with poor grammar. Maybe you should rethink your position. You can start with reviewing your own flaws before being so hypercritical of others. Don't you have anything better to do with your time other than spew hate on this forum? No friends to hang out with? Hmmmm, I guess not. Why does that NOT surprise me. On another note, I think the intent of this article was meant to make Hawaii folks feel comfortable about visiting another city. We are not only visiting to see the game but also to play tourist. Any tips about good places to eat and visit are appreciated by those traveling.  (Dec 26, 2007 | post #62)

Hawaii smoking ban seems to be working

This law and the article about it is hypocrisy. If smoking is so bad and is killing so many people then just ban it already. Oh yeah, I forgot, who is going to make up for the MILLIONS of tax dollars that comes from tobacco sales? Letís not forget the booming "quit smoking" market for products by pharmaceutical industries that help you quit. Smoking is big bucks and will NOT GO AWAY because of it. My observations: Most people who work in (former) smoking establishments smoke themselves. If the smoke bothers them or affects their health, they should choose to work somewhere else. Many years ago when my husband worked in a restaurant in Waikiki, he and all the other employees would choose to work in the smoking section. My husband has always been a non-smoker but says the tip money was always 30-50% more than the non-smoking side. I support a business' right to choose to allow a legal activity in their establishment  (Nov 16, 2007 | post #50)

You just pointed out in your post that the the take, take, take mentality exists prior to and despite of the Superferry.  (Nov 2, 2007 | post #146)
