Thank you for your efforts
Thank you Sen. Mazie Hirono. Thank you Nancy. Thank you Joe.
We will soon discover whether we are a democracy or a dictatorship.

People taking foolish chances
All the safety and warning videos, warning signs and barriers are not a guarantee to keep tourists and adventurous people safe. It’s been too many times we hear of and see tourists climbing over barriers or ignoring warning signs. The latest proof is a man going over the barrier and falling several hundreds of feet into the rim of a volcano on the Big Island.

‘The Shadow’ cares, it shows
After reading Sunday’s TGI Talk Story with “The Shadow,” one thing is for sure. When the mayor put together his team he forgot to include what could have been a tremendous asset to his team. With people like “The Shadow” there wouldn’t be mismanaged or broken parks and public bathrooms and facilities. I think he does what the county and state should be doing, only better, because with him the most important thing is he cares and is driven to do what he does. Thanks, Shadow, for what you do.

Mel Rapozo would be a fine auditor
OK, Mr. Parachini, your spiteful perspective on Mr. Mel Rapozo’s qualifications for county auditor comes as no surprise, considering some of your previous commentaries. Yet, who really put you up to the task? It is hard for me to believe that someone who just moved here is truly fraught with the sanctity of the Charter Commission.
For my tax dollar, I can think of no one else to be a better man for the job than Mel Rapozo. His meaningful service to improve security and welfare of island citizens has earned my trust.
How can his years of experience reviewing county budgets and interactive governmental funding not be an asset? I feel if movie and television stars can be mayors, governors and presidents, why can’t a councilman be an auditor?
