Da Shadow for Sunday, December 10, 2017

Editor’s note: Old-timers might still remember the introduction from The Shadow radio program: “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows!” Jerome Freitas, a retired state Department of Transportation worker who is now better known as Da Shadow, since 2004 has been meeting with government representatives about problems he has discovered or that have been reported to him, and reporting the county’s responses.


The electricity in the main Salt Pond Pavilion trips frequently and the electrical outlets are loose. Please look into repairing the outlets and identifying the reason why the electricity continues to trip.

Work Order #W017002592 has been created with Facilities Maintenance to check and repair the electrical system at the pavilion.


Much of the Kamalani Playground equipment is damaged or broken. Please look into repairing the damaged playground equipment throughout the entire playground area.

The Department of Parks and Recreation staff will check the playground for deficiencies. Recently, boards that were broken were replaced and a slide that is broken is on order.

    Hello and sometimes the farmers market vendors, appear to be selling items that may have come from the grocery store/Costco and not a home garden or farm;

    Is there a County rule, that the sellers, are require to only sell truly local grown items from their garden or farm ?

    If so , how is that rule enforced/over seen?
