HONOLULU – Governor Linda Lingle along with Castle & Cooke, First Wind Hawai‘i and Hawaiian Electric Company today announced an agreement that could lead to large wind farms on both Lāna‘i and Moloka‘i providing clean energy to O‘ahu.

Superferry Update: A rat, a coward, and thin-skinned pseudo intellectuals
By Andrew Walden @ 7:48 AM :: 13717 Views :: Hawaii County , Kauai County, Maui County, Environment, Development

“After reading the alarming tract, I wanted to know whether Albertini -- who went to prison for a year (many years ago) for trying to block a Navy vessel in Hilo Harbor -- will be putting his life and/or freedom on the line along with the novice activists he is counseling.

“The answer? No. Not only is Albertini not going to protest the Superferry, he claims he didn’t even know his “non-violent” call to arms was even published."

Help needed to pass "Karen's Law" HB819
By News Release @ 9:56 AM :: 3217 Views :: Maui County, Environment

....On May 25, 2007, Karen Ertell was brutally raped and murdered in her home in Ewa Beach. Karen Ertell was the only real mother that her foster daughter, Malanie McLellan had ever known.  Your immediate action is needed to keep "Karen's Law" (HB819) alive.  It appears that the House Finance Committee may not hear Karen's Law.  This would kill the bill with no explanation.  As the law currently stands, juvenile crime offenders, charged with 1st or 2nd degree murder can face two trials, one to determine which court to try them in and then another trial to decide guilt or innocence.  We need to start protecting the people of Hawaii and stop making excuses for defending people that break the law.

Molokai Ranch: Protesters to Cash in with Takeover Plan?
By Andrew Walden @ 2:49 PM :: 12679 Views :: Maui County, Agriculture, Greenmail

Molokai’s largest private employer is closing operations. With unemployment already at 7 percent, 120 more Molokai residents (on an island of just over 7,000 residents) are losing their jobs. In a state where politicians pretend to be obsessed with “saving agriculture,” cattle ranching will end on the 1/3 of the island owned by Molokai Ranch.
