LaBoy brings passion to Arizona

Why then, do you even have it listed. To make the writer look stupid? Take this down, the Star Bulletin is looking silly with this thing up! I have never seen this on the Advertiser's site. Like Michelle Wie, you are making bad decisions.  (Aug 19, 2008 | post #1)

Lingle questions trip to Florida for educators

Hey Teachers/BOE/DOE: If you agree to the drug tests, pass them, and can raise the test scores in Hawaii, I will send you to Orlando Annually! Bring back what you learned. You guys are looking more and more like a big joke! You are losing public support, with that goes your clout at the legislature, BAD MOVE!  (Aug 8, 2008 | post #93)

Group stops construction at burials

Go to Waianae and Waimanalo aunty! I am torn on this matter. Obviously something slipped through the cracks in the building process. I would not want to live there, but I would also be p'off if I owned that land and could do nothing with it. I just had to respond to ignorance.  (Aug 8, 2008 | post #68)

Kauai candidates vow Superferry opposition

I live in Hawaii. Have for over 30 years. Went to a school on a hill. I know Molokai residents were screwed by Molokai Ranch, the only had that fed. The Laau issue was touchy, but it looks like it is hurting more peeps now than helping. No construction, the county having to help with the water, Maui spending most of the money. My comparison to Molokai was with the bad decisions being made on which way to sway on issues. Was is it the Molokai majority or the loudest ones that had the bigger impact. That is my comparison to Kauai, the vocal majority is shadowing the physical majority. And the outcome of choking tourism (our #1 $maker)will have lasting effects on the Kauai community. If I had to choose between feeding my family, making a mortgage payment or stopping the SF, I choose my family and a tourist rich income on the most beautiful island in the chain. My ISP may say Fairfax, but I can tell you that Portuguese Bean soup at Zippy's Kapahulu today was righteous!  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #108)

Once the politicians actually go out, I hope they get to meet some people who want the SF, and those numbers will add up. The tunes will change and there will be some harsh words spewed forth by the loud protesters and post-iniki/iwa crowds. Kauai is looking like Molokai. BTW, that is not a good thing! Economy woes await you. Yes, more than you have now!  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #74)

Uncle, The military will use it to travel between Hawaii Island and Oahu for training. The military (mostly the Hawaii National Guard) will be able to get supplies, equipment and troops to support Hurricane ravaged areas for a fraction of the cost and time of riding a C-17 or sending stuff on a barge. It is not a conspiracy, it is business. Supply and Demand. There is a bigger picture and one of those brush strokes includes planning for natural or man-made disasters. Step back and take a look.  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #34)

Kauai candidates vow Superferry opposition

I too rode the Superferry recently and was pleasantly surprised. Lots of business vehicles made the trip, opening up new customers and expanding their market. The savings on airfare and rental car costs are amazing and the savings get spent on Maui. We came back to Oahu with almost a full boat, 725 passengers. One crack! 725 people. Kauai locals need to speak up and stand up to the environmentalists and have their voices heard. Kauai it is your loss, don't be the next Molokai Ranch/Laau debacle, they are hurting on the donkey isle. To the Superferry: Do the darn EIS! Shut those tree huggers up!  (Aug 7, 2008 | post #32)

Isle Guard unit ready for more 'tough going'

Hey ponoszie,......... ...there is a lot I would like to say, but you are a lost cause and it would be a waste of my time. To the Native Hawaiians that proudly serve- Imua!  (Aug 5, 2008 | post #7)

Isle Guard unit ready for more 'tough going'

With such a short time between deployments, it must be really **** the families and civilian employers, kudos to them for putting up with the most recent shipping out of Hawaii's soldiers. With those convoy missions going north into Iraq, the odds of more Hawaii casualties will be high. I wish you the best my buddahs!  (Aug 5, 2008 | post #1)

Army says sergeant 'acted inappropriately'

Army says sergeant 'acted inappropriately'

The DI was wrong and he will be punished, the mommy needs to concentrate on her son. If he still had bad vision and a hearing impairment, then he needs to take care of that. The thing that bothers me the most is the last paragraph. They made him read the story to his platoon? Is Ft. Sill on crack? This issue was done, now you singled him out more with his peers. Stupid decision! Who is running things up there? Team Wie? And the National Guard does not run the Basic Training! OMG starbulletin! Get it right!!!!!!  (Aug 1, 2008 | post #59)

Willoughby embraces 'highest honor'

"baby fat"? Good analogy! Watching Willoughby play was an honor! She brough people to the games at UH. Now the world will get to enjoy her A-L-O-H-A.  (Jul 30, 2008 | post #3)

No answers yet for mom

Mr. kaeksako has his facts wrong. Ranks, who runs the Basic Training and an over-protective mommy. I did not spell his name correctly to show how annoying it is when basic info is WRONG!!!! The Guard does not run Basic Training! When the trooper is away, he becomes property of the unit he is reporting to. They do the investigations, training and accountability for all trainees. If they asked the mom to stop calling, she must have really bothered them. The soldier was accidentally hit in the head with a bed. Action was taken against the DI and the soldier was treated and released. If anything, they should just send him home, out of the military to mommy. If it was a serious injury the Red Cross woulda notified her. If he still does not feel fine, he should be in bed, not back at training. Some peeps in this thread talked about this is like Tillman's incident, are you nuts? Yes you are. Mommy needs to back off, her baby will be fine. The Army needs to complete its investigation quickly. Kreg Gakessako needs to gather better facts.  (Jul 29, 2008 | post #94)

Kokua Line: National Guard signs

First of all thanks to all the aloha shown to the National Guard and Warriors in general. I am sure the support shown in this thread is being spread throughout Hawaii National Guard circles and it is appreciated! Bottom line, the signs will come down because of the Outdoor Circle's request and it is the right thing to do. There are many ways to foster community support and raise awareness about "Hawaii's Own", the signs were seen as the easiest. The Hawaii National Guard will go on and make sure the people of our state our protected. June Watanabe and Bob Loy, annoying as they may be, turned a little thing into a "slap in the face", I hope they read all 20 or so of these comments and realize, that they do not speak for the majority. There will be a large group deploying soon, maybe a short tour to the Middle East will bring light to our two friends and let them see the "bigger picture" and exactly how the Warriors put their lives on the line everyday. It will be then, and only then, will they realize how insignificant that a small paper sign with two wires in the ground along the Ala Wai really is.  (Jul 24, 2008 | post #22)

UH camp pays off

I would love to see Benson Maafala play at UH. I taught him PE in early elementary in Kalihi and he was a quiet giant. Easily a full head taller than the other students but a great kid.  (Jul 23, 2008 | post #7)
