Public School Locker Searches

Nov. 2, 2007 (6397 views)

The Board of Education voted in favor of allowing student locker searches, pending public hearings and the approval of the Governor. The intent is to help reduce the amount of drugs and weapons on campuses. The ACLU threatened a lawsuit if the Board included language which would have allowed school administrators to search with or without reason, so the BOE approved language which allows searches only if there is reasonable suspicion. Hawaii's school campuses are open, unlike the...

Missing Home

Oct. 29, 2007 (2057 views)

Right now I'm in Oregon going to college but I do miss Maui. I miss the food the weather and the people. We needed to find a blog of something that interest us for my writing class. I choose this particular blog because it talks about the fun things to do on Maui, the issues that the island faces, and how it is the best island to go to if you just want to relax. The one thing I miss about Maui, is the food. I miss eating Komoda's, Da Kitchen, Koho's, Makawao Steak House. I also miss the beaches and...

Funding Our Public Schools

Oct. 19, 2007 (2224 views)

The Honolulu Advertiser is reporting that the State Board of Education voted to implement a new "sliding scale" formula to allocate funds for public schools beginning next school year. The news reports the percentage of dollars to be lost or gained per school. A more accurate measure is to report how much money each school currently receives, and will receive, PER CHILD it services. While this new formula seeks to minimize financial loss to smaller schools, it also minimizes the financial...

Is it just me or does anyone else see anything wrong with Sen J.Kalani English’s comments in the Mauinews.He thinks that supporters of the superferry are annoying because they are sending emails expressing their support of the ferry.Seems strange, an elected representative has the opinion that residents of Hawaii, the same residents that he is supposed to represent are annoying because they express their opinion.What would he prefer, we all shut up and let...

Halloween - At Front Street Lahaina, and all over Maui

Oct. 6, 2007 (2410 views)

About two years ago, I told my husband "I have been living on Maui for 10 years (more or less), and I have not once gone to the Front Street for Halloween - I've got to do it at least once". And so we did. We went in 2005. Having kids though, I main focus was the "children's parade" and we did not stay for the later night "mardi grass" type celebration.Are you planning on going to Lahanina this year for Halloween?...

Water... to use or not to use

Oct. 1, 2007 (4253 views)

Maui County is again faced with a water shortage. We typically go through this each summer with mandatory cut-backs on usage upcountry, and voluntary cut-backs in Central and South Maui. Why the water shortage exists is probably a combination of environmental, social, and infrustructure problems. Solutions are a few years away. Meanwhile, conservation is being pushed as the solution to the immediate need. The County's Water Department is recommending a mandatory 10% cut back for Central and...
