KAMA‘AINA VOICES — Mike O’Toole, runs a fish market, Po‘ipu

• Family “My wife and I moved here three years ago.”

• Employment “I’m semi-retired. I run a fish market with a cafe attached to it.”

• Hobbies “I love traveling and sitting on the beach.”

• What do you like most about The Garden Island? “I like the fact that it has a minimal amount of Mainland negation.

It deals with, for the most part, Hawai‘i and local issues.”

• What do you like most about living on Kaua‘i? “The fact that this is the most remote place. It’s the greatest place to live on the face of the planet. I love the pace of living, the pace of life. At least right now the traffic isn’t so bad.”

• If you could change one thing about life on Kaua‘i, what would it be? “Local politicians, for lack of being educated themselves, on the know-how to shoulder development. The pace of development is insane. I would never have let this happen if I could. I’d very much like to share my feelings about Kaua‘i’s beauty and how the out of control growth could put the ugly on it real quick.”
