Menor's DUI test flawed, lawyer says

What do you call 100 lawyers buried up to their necks? Not enough dirt.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #74)

That would be .14 - 1.4 and he would be dead.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #73)

What's The Law: Transgendered tenants

Tenants who are slugs are like ABC stores in Waikiki. Most landlords would kill for reliable (pay on time, no loud noise, clean up after themsleves) tenants. I would rent to a transgender, illegal alien, alcoholic/drug addict, lawyer, part-time used car salesman, smoker with pets if he/she is a reliable tenant.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #9)

Tourism in a tizzy as arrivals fall

I understand your point but what about the local people employed in the tourist industry?  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #9)

Kauai case of sex assault dismissed

I agree but little consolation if she is prosecuted. There is no worse accusation than that of sexually molesting a minor family member. The damage is done forever with the mere accusation.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #4)

Residents urged to save water

One more slap in the face for local middle class people. Bad enough they live 20+ miles from work and pay $4 a gallon for gas. Median price for a house (shack) is $650K+. Long standing Hawai'i companies closing their doors. But someone is still making money in Hawai'i. Someone is still exploiting the aina. Notice I do not say someone from the mainland (haole). Could be local someone too. Bottom line is someone is laughing all the way to the bank by continuing to over-develop and over-populate Oahu and no one in power is stopping them. The sad irony is that the guy(s) getting rich are largely responsible for the water shortage and once again it is the middle class local people, the people who can least afford more cutbacks, who suffer. Don't believe. Six months from now try drive by Blackpoint, Portlock, Kahala Drive, etc., and tell me what color the grass in the front yards.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #3)

Tourism in a tizzy as arrivals fall

Good point. Unfortunately, making Hawai'i "affordable " would hurt the "traditional " tourist hotels, transportation and attractions. You and I can fly "home" and stay with family. We eat local and probably not going do the tourist thing. But the typical tourist is the bread and butter of the Hawai'i tourist industry and they are going to be charged a premium, especially now with gas and food prices going up and up. I believe airfares have to go down and more people will fly to Hawai'i. I know that is almost impossible because of fuel prices but today Shell reported a $25 billion profit. Nuff said.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #2)

Cut all the crap. Reveal the BAC field test results.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #2)

City worker pleads guilty

I guess this is another one to blame on ice but he was doing this for 17 years. My point is that someone, family, co-workers, etc., should have noticed. Or maybe he was just a thief and the drugs came later - I don't know. Either way good thing he got caught since the taxpayers were supplementing his crimes. Maybe now he can get help but still very sad for his family and friends.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #1)

Stunning end comes suddenly for workers

With all that has happened to Aloha Airlines in recent weeks this does not come as a surprise to me. But how can management not know the drop-dead date ahead of time so they can give their employees a heads-up? Bad enough to lose your job but at least give them some warning so they can make plans. Yes, the employees should have seen the writing on the wall but throughout this whole thing I get the feeling management has dropped the ball.  (Apr 29, 2008 | post #1)

2 chains limit bulk rice purchases

The U.S. produces about 8 million metric tons of rice. The U.S. exports about 3 million metric tons of rice. The average American consumes 15+ pounds of rice annually (about 2 million metric tons). Raise the price by one cent per pound and...hmmmmm. How long before unleaded rice?  (Apr 24, 2008 | post #13)

The USDA reported the 2008 rice export (U.S.) to increase by 20%. Huh???  (Apr 24, 2008 | post #11)

'I saw my skin rolling off,' victim testifies

Good thing the body goes into shock. I remember the orange flash followed by the peeling skin but no pain. It took about 10-15 minutes before that hit but when it did - Yikes!!! Thank Gd for the morphine drip at the ER. Hell won't be hot enough if this guy did set her on fire but at least the flames will give him a taste of his own medicine.  (Apr 24, 2008 | post #1)

Lankford found guilty

I know many are "tired" of hearing about this case but it ain't over until Lankford comes clean and leads authorities to Ms. Watanabe's body.  (Apr 24, 2008 | post #99)
