By Selected News Articles @ 3:38 PM :: 11846 Views :: Maui County, Energy, Greenmail

Sierra Club Vice Chair: “Killing TMT will cause another drop in Sierra Club membership and stature; it is the Superferry all over again”
By News Release @ 1:10 AM :: 10974 Views :: Hawaii County , Greenmail

I am troubled by the anti-TMT attitude. We are about to reward unprecedented respectful and responsible behavior by the TMT project with open opposition and legal action intended to stop construction. Many are saying the Sierra Club is anti-astronomy while others claim that the TMT is caught in the cross-fire of some long standing anti-UH vendetta.

By Robert Thomas @ 10:38 AM :: 7846 Views :: Greenmail

The State argues: ...the Court has made new law that will significantly affect multiple sectors of our community, all levels of state and county government, and countless administrative and judicial proceedings that are pending in the courts and before state and county land use and environmental regulatory agencies."

Thirty Meter Telescope Selects Mauna Kea -- Let the looting begin!
By News Release @ 8:41 PM :: 25210 Views :: Hawaii County , Greenmail, Higher Education, OHA

(SB Headline is "GOTCHA!".  After OHA's rent-seeking lawsuits begin, it will become more clear what that means.  For now everybody is celebrating ....) 

HONOLULU – Governor Linda Lingle today praised the decision by the board of directors of the TMT Observatory Corporation to select Mauna Kea as the preferred site for the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT)....

 "Having the most advanced telescope in the world on the slopes of Mauna Kea will enhance Hawai‘i’s high-technology sector, while providing our students with education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields."

Unperplexing Opposition to the Hawaii Superferry
By Andrew Walden @ 7:25 AM :: 18855 Views :: Environment, Greenmail

Why Hawaii needs $2 million “for the promotion of astronomy”
By Andrew Walden @ 12:35 AM :: 11659 Views :: Greenmail

It was such a simple question. Debating earmarks on the Senate floor, John McCain demanded of Dan Inouye: "We're going to spend $2 million for the promotion of astronomy in Hawaii….Why do we need $2 million to promote astronomy in Hawaii when unemployment is going up and the stock market is tanking?"

Reporters soon determined the $2 million was for the Imiloa Astronomy Center in Hilo, Hawaii. But the usual liberally deficient commentators have proven completely unable to answer the question “why”?

Telescope: The Shakedown begins
By Andrew Walden @ 8:14 PM :: 17934 Views :: Hawaii County , Greenmail, Higher Education, OHA

Some may have thought this problem was settled when activists were given plum jobs at Hilo’s shiny new Imiloa Astronomy center, but shakedown is the foundation of Hawai`i’s so-called economy and when Dan Inouye plops a $1.2 billion money bag on the top of Mauna Kea, the grasping begins.

Moloka`i activists seek control of ranch
By Andrew Walden @ 11:31 AM :: 15816 Views :: Maui County, Development, Greenmail

Ritte’s phony “Save La`au” campaign has been falsely portrayed as an anti-development battle, but in reality it is a battle between two competing developers each tied to a different government group.

Puna CDP: Eliminate affordable housing
By Andrew Walden @ 10:21 AM :: 7977 Views :: Hawaii County , Environment, Greenmail, Hawaii Statistics, Cost of Living

Puna is one of the very few places in Hawai`i where young local families can afford to buy their own home and begin life as a family.  But environmentalists are working hard to put a stop to the inflow of locals and replicate the success they have had in making Maui and Kaua`i into exclusive havens for rich mainland transplants.

Molokai Ranch: Protesters to Cash in with Takeover Plan?
By Andrew Walden @ 2:49 PM :: 20119 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.

'Lost Malihini Tribe' and PASH Aim to Take Over County Council
By Andrew Walden @ 6:50 PM :: 12266 Views :: Hawaii County , Greenmail

This contradiction goes to the root of the bizarre political coalition Kona-side. People who were likely conservatives when they lived on the mainland are electing left-wing extremists to the Council. One of their first acts was to install Sierra Club attorney David Frankel as County Legislative Auditor. Frankel had selected Jack Kelly (now PKO Vice-President) as the Sierra Club’s employee to target the Hokulia development. Kelly is one of the four plaintiffs who have demanded $4 million in personal “compensation” from Hokulia according to documents released by Hokulia developer Oceanside 1250.
